So the FBI had Hunter Biden’s laptop for about a year, and didn’t do anything with all that evidence. Ok, that makes sense. The FBI’s job is to investigate Republicans. There were no Republicans implicated in this evidence, so why would they pursue an investigation? Again, that makes perfect sense. But then, after that perfectly predictable beginning, some rather odd things started to happen.
A copy of the laptop’s hard drive falls into Republican hands a few weeks before the election. How fortuitous. And then there’s Barack Obama. He could have campaigned for Joe Biden during the primary, but he did not. He could have campaigned for him after Biden won the nomination, but he did not. But then Mr. Obama changed his mind, and decided to help Biden on the campaign trail. And he did so, I think, within a few days of the laptop evidence being exposed. One wonders what other evidence is on that laptop. I have no idea. But I suspect that Mr. Obama may have some idea.
This is all getting pretty weird.
I don’t see how the Democrats can lose a national election with mail-in ballots. With enough mail-in ballots out there, it no longer really matters who votes for whom. They’ll make it work. They know how to fix things.
And presumably, if Biden wins, then it really doesn’t matter what’s on that laptop, right? All this will just go away. These are Democrats. They know how to fix things.
The owner of the computer repair shop made copies of Biden’s hard drive. He gave one to the FBI, and one to Rudy Giuliani, apparently. But he also gave two copies to friends, in case he happened to die for some reason. He knows exactly what he’s up against. These are Democrats. They know how to fix things.
Can you imagine what the news would be like if Jeffrey Epstein’s trial was going on right now? That would be very messy. These are Democrats. They know how to fix things.
What I’m getting at is that I don’t see how Biden can lose this election. Well, I don’t know how many people are actually going to vote for him, but I don’t think it matters. I don’t see how Biden can lose this election.
So I don’t understand why Obama decided to help Joe Biden all of a sudden. All this is just going to go away, right? Biden and Obama are Democrats, and thus untouchable, right? Who cares about some stupid laptop? In four months, the media will be focused on some group of camo-wearing idiots from Idaho or something, and all this will just go away.
I dunno. I could easily be over-reading this. But Obama has tended to remain distant from (and sometimes openly contemptuous of) Joe Biden. Why did he decide to become buddies all of a sudden?
Am I over-estimating the ability of Democrats to create fraudulent mail-in ballots? Do the Democrats have polling data that show a Trump landslide too large to cheat? Is it possible that prominent Democrats think they face real legal jeopardy from what’s on that laptop?
I just can’t believe that any of those things are true. But maybe, I guess.
Or am I missing something here?
