Latest in swamp news: MSNBC contributor, Hunter laptop denier, appointed by Biden to Intelligence Advisory Board


The following includes editorial content which is the opinion of the writer, a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

WASHINGTON, DC- You literally cannot make this stuff up. On Friday, Joe Biden announced he was going to appoint Jeremy Bash, an MSNBC analyst who dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop as “Russian disinformation” to his Intelligence Advisory Board. Clearly, having any modicum of “intelligence” is not a prerequisite for appointment.

Fox News reports that since the existence of the laptop was revealed in October, 2020, the authenticity of it has been verified  by numerous news organizations, including even the New York Times, debunking Bash’s claims as well as those of some 50 other former “intelligence” officials that it was a Russian disinformation op.

Those officials, including Bash, drafted a letter which was widely disseminated throughout the media and portrayed as the truth despite there being precisely zero evidence to support their claims.

Bash formerly served in the Central Intelligence Agency as its Chief of Staff and has served as an MSNBC leftist talking head for several years.

“Perhaps most important, each of us believes deeply that American citizens should determine the outcome of elections, not foreign governments,” the 50, including former Obama administration officials John Brennan and James Clapper wrote.

Bid “All of agree with the founding fathers’ concern about the damage that foreign interference in our politics can do to our democracy.”

We’re pretty sure the founding fathers were equally concerned about domestic interference in our politics as well.

“It is for all these reasons that we write to say that the arrival on the US political scene of emails purportedly belonging to Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, much of it related to his time serving on the Board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” they continued.

When news of the laptop broke, the only information that was permitted to be shared on social media were ones debunking the laptop’s authenticity.

The New York Post was famously blocked from posting on their Twitter account until they agreed to remove the story referencing the laptop, which they broke. It was only after the election when they had their account restored.

When writing the letter, Bash and the other leftist anti-Trump, pro-Biden mouthpieces acknowledged that they did “not know if the emails…are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement,” but maintained that they were “deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.”

That letter caught wind in mainstream media with very few exceptions, and several members of the incoming Biden administration took off with it, including Biden’s first propaganda minister Jen Psaki.

Biden himself, when he extricated himself from the basement long enough to issue a statement, also joined the fray in dismissing the laptop’s authenticity.

Bash also took to a number of MSNBC programs, including “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

For example, on Oct 19, 2020 appearing with airhead Nicolle Wallace, Bash said:

“This looks like Russian intelligence. This walks like Russian intelligence. This talks like Russian intelligence. This effort by Rudy Giuliani and the New York Post and Steve Bannon to cook up supposed dirt on Joe Biden looks like a classic Russian playbook disinformation campaign,” the Washington Examiner reported Bash as saying.  

Oh, but Bash wasn’t done there. He referred to the emails as being “mysteriously created” and further said they were “probably hacked through a Russian intelligence operation,” calling it “collusion in plain sight.”

“At a minimum, it’s conspiracy to engage in computer crimes and hacking in violation of criminal laws,” Bash continued bloviating to Maddow. “It’s also potentially conspiracy to engage in election interference.”

It appears the only “election interference” conducted was by Bash and the other 50 never-Trumpers who signed the BS letter.

The Washington Examiner hired cyber forensics expert and former Secret Service agent Konstantinos “Gus” Dimitrelos to examine the laptop earlier this year. He said “there is 100% certainty that Robert Hunter Biden was the only person responsible for the activity on this hard drive” and that “the hard drive is authentic.”

Joe Biden has now rewarded Bash by appointing him to a seat on the Intelligence Advisory Board. MSNBC, when reached out for comment, would not respond when asked if Bash would continue in his role at that network.

In the White House press release announcing his appointment, they referenced Bash’s role as Chief of Staff at the CIA, as well as the Department of Defense for the former secretary of both agencies, Leon Panetta. Oh, and Panetta also signed the bogus letter suggesting the Russian disinformation campaign.

“The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board is an independent element within the Executive Office of the President,” the White House said. “The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board exist exclusively to assist the President by providing the President with an independent [yea right] source of advice on the effectiveness with which the intelligence Community is meeting the nation’s intelligence needs and the vigor and insight with which the community plans for the future.”

Oh, and Bash was also picked earlier this year to be a member of the Afghanistan War Commission. Pretty sure that will be an unbiased opinion from another swamp creature.

Just another example of the swamp former President Trump warned us about.

WASHINGTON, DC- Remember back in 2020 when Joe Biden claimed “50 intelligence experts” alleged that the Hunter Biden laptop was a “Russian disinformation” campaign? The suppression of the laptop scandal is widely believed to have helped throw the election to Biden, which the American people are now paying for dearly.

One of those so-called “experts,” John Sipher, recently took to Twitter where he boasted about taking “special pride” in his part of the scheme to discredit the laptop scandal and is part in “swinging” the 2020 election “away from Trump,” Red Voice Media reports.

Sipher’s “mature” proclamation came as part of a Twitter tete a tete between he and former Trump White House official Richard Grenell over Hunter Biden’s laptop, which mainstream media outlets such as the New York Times and the Washington Post have finally admitted is legitimate.

Sipher was among those “50 intelligence experts” who signed their name to the now-debunked letter in which they made the claim about Russian disinformation after the New York Post’s explosive revelations about the laptop and its contents. The laptop had been abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop by Hunter Biden in 2019, and its existence was unmasked only weeks before the November 2020 election.

On March 18th, the Post included Sipher as being among the officials who “signed a letter saying that the laptop ‘has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.’”

There was no evidence whatsoever to back their claim, but that didn’t stop the men, including former Obama administration officials John Brennan, James Clapper and Leon Panetta, from claiming it was part of a Russian hoax. That didn’t matter as the letter they signed was published five days after the Post dropped the story and only weeks before the election.

The letter now appears to be part of a concerted effort to undermine the Post report and sew doubts as to the veracity of the laptop story. That taken in concert with coordinated efforts among tech tyrants such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others to suppress the laptop story was enough, along with some “questionable” electioneering in primarily swing states, to install Biden as president.

That led to the Twitter battle between Grenell and Sipher, who posted a poll on his Twitter page asking if Hunter Biden would be indicted.

Grenell replied, “lol. He signed the letter saying Hunter’s laptop was Russian disinformation.”

Sipher, being the smug punk that he is replied to Grenell whereby he made the comment in taking pride in impacting the election. Apparently signing his name to a false document is more important to Sipher than his credibility, if he ever had any.

“I take special pride in personally swinging the election away from Trump. You’re welcome.

“Maybe cowardly Dick forgot he blocked me for the last several years and only unblocked me to give me credit for swinging the election.”

No, Grenell unblocked Sipher because he’s a lying dirtbag.

Sipher then attempted a “cleanup on aisle four” of his earlier tweet.

“Just to be clear. Disingenuous Dick and his cronies are spinning this story by pretending the letter said something it didn’t say. Didn’t say the laptop wasn’t Biden’s but that Russia and the right-wing were exploring and amplifying the story for disinformation purposes.”

Actually, what the letter said in part was, according to The Hill:

“We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement—just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.” [emphasis added]

So, they didn’t have evidence, yet they made the assertion anyway.

Yet leftist networks such as MSNBC and CNN parade out people like Clapper, Sipher, and Brennan as “experts” on intelligence. Talk about your contradiction in terms.

For more on crackhead Hunter’s laptop and how it is now risking national security, we invite you to:


The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the author, a staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

Remember when Joe Biden said during the campaign against President Trump that the abandoned laptop reported at the time by the New York Post was a “Russian disinformation” campaign?

We are now finding out that Biden had good reason to issue what is now known to be a complete fabrication in making such an allegation. And then as now, everything centered around Ukraine, The Federalist reports.

Last Friday, the Daily Mail reported that emails recovered from crackhead Hunter’s laptop reveal he had helped an infectious disease research company pursue projects in that Eastern European country.

In fact, those emails confirm in some manner allegations made by Russia the previous day, noting that an investment group run by Hunter Biden funded a company conducting research at biological labs in Ukraine.

It has long been thought by some that the shenanigans engaged in by Hunter Biden, taking advantage of his father’s role as vice president, would come back and haunt the United States.

In fact, President Trump had warned during a 60 Minutes interview that the laptop abandoned in a Delaware repair shop posed national security concerns, but those claims were dismissed outright by CBS News’ Leslie Stahl.

Only weeks before the November 2020 election, the Post published emails obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop which he “forgot” (likely in a crack stupor) at the computer repair shop. Those emails showed that during Biden’s term as vice president, Hunter had engaged in a pay-to-play scandal, using his father’s power and influence to strike deals with key players not only in Ukraine, but also in China.

Among those emails was one in which Joe Biden was listed as “the Big Guy,” who was set to receive a 10 percent cut of one of the deals Hunter was working on, and another where Hunter claimed that “pop”—the family nickname for Joe Biden—took half of his earnings.

Furthermore, when a former business partner of Hunter Biden’s—Tony Bobulinski—confirmed the authenticity of the emails, the mainstream media and tech tyrants buried the story, with social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook censoring the story. In fact, Twitter kicked the New York Post off the platform until they agreed to remove the story.

To make matters worse, “more than 50 former senior intelligence officials”—including disgraced Obama-era officials John Brennan, Leon Panetta, and James Clapper—signed a letter which called the Hunter Biden emails “Russian disinformation.”

By signing the letter, which Biden famously bragged about during one of his debates with Trump, it gave Biden cover to lie to the American people, which he gladly did when Trump confronted him about it.

“Are you saying the laptop is now another Russia, Russia, Russia hoax?” Trump asked Biden during the debate.

“That’s exactly what [I] was told,” Biden replied. “There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plant,” Biden said, furthering the lie to the American people, perpetrating the lie long enough to get himself elected by an ignorant electorate.

Now, miraculously, the New York Times finally took off their blinders and admitted the truth and confessed both the laptop and the emails were legitimate.

That admission proved significant, at least initially because it appeared to further legitimatize the information gleaned from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. However the scandal elevated to a whole other level last week after the Daily Mail released the information they uncovered.

With that release, things went from bad to really bad.

“Emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show he helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons,” the Daily Mail said last week.

Continuing, the article read:

“[Biden] also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a ‘science project’ involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine. And although Metabiota is ostensibly a medical data company, its vice president emailed Hunter in 2014 describing how they could ‘assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia’—an unusual goal for a biotech firm.”

The Daily Mail  further expanded on Metabiota and crackhead Hunter’s involvement in brokering relationships for that company in Ukraine. The article contained a number of copies of emails obtained from the laptop which confirmed the Mail’s reporting.

In addition, the article also included details which shed light on Hunter Biden’s “business” dealings in Ukraine while daddy Joe served not only as vice president, but more specifically as America’s point person on issues related to that nation.

The Daily Mail has been one of the leading media organizations reporting on materials contained on Hunter’s laptop.

For example, last summer it published “unearthed footage” of the younger Biden telling a prostitute that in 2018, another laptop had gone missing and he believed it to be stolen by Russia. He also expressed concern that the information on the laptop could provide “fodder for blackmail” since it contained confidential and “compromising” information.

The Federalist notes there are major differences between the emails addressed in the Daily Mail piece from last week and those published last year, with the most prominent being the timing of the release, only one day after Russia’s State Duma speaker accused Joe Biden of being “involved in the creation of bio laboratories in Ukraine.”

Vyacheslav Volodin claimed “an investment fund [Rosemont Seneca] run by his son Hunter Biden funded research and the implementation of the United States’ military biological program.”

Of course, leftist media soon seized upon Volodin’s claim, with The Telegraph referring to it as an “unsubstantiated claim” which it said was “designed to build on negative coverage about [the] president’s son in Right-wing US media.”

However, with Friday’s release of the previously undisclosed emails from Hunter’s laptop, it seems to give some credence to Russia’s claim concerning Hunter Biden’s ties to Ukrainian biolabs.

The Federalist noted that none of the emails released last week specifically back up Russia’s claim that the labs in Ukraine were used to either research or create bioweapons. However, for propaganda purposes, only a “sliver of truth” is needed “to serve its purpose.”

That is why the emails contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop serve, if nothing else, as enough evidence to provide Putin and Russia the ability to claim Hunter Biden’s potential involvement in developing a bioweapon program in Ukraine. That would also seem to give Russia cover for its attack on the eastern European country.

There is also an important question that needs to be answered. How, the day before the Daily Mail released the information about Rosemont Seneca investing in Metabiota and being involved in that company’s operations in Ukraine, did Russia confirm its suspicions of a biolab in Ukraine?

It has long been suspected in some circles that Putin (and possibly Xi in China) had compromising information on Joe Biden, courtesy of his crackhead son Hunter and his business dalliances facilitated by his father’s position as vice president.

The timing of last week’s events, The Federalist tells us, suggests that Russia either had access to the same emails as the Daily Mail, or did indeed get access to Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2018.

Either way, the apparent corruption of the Biden family as memorialized in the abandoned laptops belonging to Hunter Biden has taken them from a potential national security risk to a real one while at the same time Russia has launched an attack on an Eastern European country bordering countries in NATO.

If you were to take the name Biden and change it to Trump, the mainstream media would be having seizures, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell would be having multiple orgasms, and Trump would be facing a third impeachment. This is media and political malfeasance on steroids.

If Biden didn’t know how compromised his family was, he should have. If he did, articles of impeachment should be drawn up…immediately. In fact, it is hard to reconcile the fact that Biden was unaware of what his son was up to. There seems to be sufficient evidence indicating he was in fact well aware of it.

Despite that, Biden lied to the American people, aided, and abetted by the so-called “high level” former members of the intelligence community who deliberately lied to the American people when they alleged the laptop was Russian disinformation.

And what of our friends in the FBI? In December 2019, they had access to Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and should have been well aware that Hunter believed the Russians had stolen his other laptop in the summer of 2018.

There is no evidence, The Federalist notes that the FBI briefed Joe Biden on the national security risks posed by the missing laptops. Worse still is the possibility that the FBI did brief Biden on the risks and yet he ran for president anyway, thus putting our country’s national security and his credibility at risk, with Putin holding all the cards.

The worst, most egregious factor coming out of all of this is the complete malpractice by a majority of the mainstream media and the social media tyrants. Had they done their job and reported this story when they should have, much of the propaganda that Putin may have his hands on would be irrelevant. Instead, we are stuck with Biden as “president” and Putin may be in fact holding all the cards over his cognitively declined head.

Hopefully not, but it doesn’t look good.
