This is a report from the New York Post authored by Emily Crane and Miranda Devine. You might remember Miranda – she is the author of the famous book “Laptop From Hell”, which is about Hunter Biden’s laptop. We’ll talk about the laptop below, but first let’s see the new news from the New York Post report.
A real estate company with ties to first son Hunter Biden received more than $100 million from a Russian billionaire for property investments across the US that date back a decade, sources have told The Post.
The hefty cash injections into Rosemont Realty came from Elena Baturina — one of Russia’s wealthiest women, the widow of the former mayor of Moscow, and a close ally of Moscow tyrant Vladimir Putin, the sources said.
In one portfolio deal, Baturina paid at least $40 million to Rosemont to invest in office buildings across the country, according to a source with knowledge of the transactions.
That money went toward the 2012 purchase of seven office buildings in Texas, Colorado, Alabama, New Mexico and Oklahoma, according to deal-related emails obtained by DailyMail.com.
The investment purportedly came from Inteco Management AG — the Swiss company owned by Baturina.
This isn’t the first time President Biden’s 52-year-old son has been linked to Baturina, whose late husband Yuri Luzhkov was mayor of Russia’s capital for more than 18 years before being dismissed by then-President Dmitry Medvedev in 2010.
Since we are heading for an election again, it might be a good idea to refresh the voters about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Back in March of 2022, the far-left New York Times published a story about Hunter Biden’s laptop. The story corrected the lies that were spread by Big Tech, the mainstream news media, and the current administration, about Hunter Biden’s laptop. It turns out that Facebook and Twitter spread disinformation before the election, because they wanted the Democrat party to win.
Let’s start with Glenn Greenwald, a progressive who has done excellent reporting about this story from the beginning.
One of the most successful disinformation campaigns in modern American electoral history occurred in the weeks prior to the 2020 presidential election. On October 14, 2020 — less than three weeks before Americans were set to vote — the nation’s oldest newspaper, The New York Post, began publishing a series of reports about the business dealings of the Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in countries in which Biden, as Vice President, wielded considerable influence (including Ukraine and China) and would again if elected president.
The backlash against this reporting was immediate and intense, leading to suppression of the story by U.S. corporate media outlets and censorship of the story by leading Silicon Valley monopolies. The disinformation campaign against this reporting was led by the CIA’s all-but-official spokesperson Natasha Bertrand (then of Politico, now with CNN), whose article on October 19 appeared under this headline: “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say.”
These “former intel officials” did not actually say that the “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo.” Indeed, they stressed in their letter the opposite: namely, that they had no evidence to suggest the emails were falsified or that Russia had anything to do them, but, instead, they had merely intuited this “suspicion” based on their experience…
[…][A]s I noted last September, “virtually every media outlet — CNN, NBC News, PBS, Huffington Post, The Intercept, and too many others to count — began completely ignoring the substance of the reporting and instead spread the lie over and over that these documents were the by-product of Russian disinformation.” The Huffington Post even published a must-be-seen-to-be-believed campaign ad for Joe Biden, masquerading as “reporting,” that spread this lie that the emails were “Russian disinformation.”
Mainstream News Media
Here is an example of how one mainstream news media outlet helped Joe Biden to win the 2020 election:
Big Tech Social Media
Facebook and Twitter did their part to help their Democrat allies.
Here is what a Facebook spokesman said about the story:
You’ll note in his bio that he is a Democrat, and has worked for Democrats. That didn’t disqualify him from working for Facebook – they are allies of the Democrat party. They regularly censor anything critical of the Democrat party, especially before important elections.
Twitter locked The New York Post’s Twitter account for close to two weeks due to its refusal to obey Twitter’s orders to delete any reference to its reporting. The social media site also blocked any and all references to the reporting by all users; Twitter users were barred even from linking to the story in private chats with one another. Facebook, through its spokesman, the life-long DNC operative Andy Stone, announced that they would algorithmically suppress discussion of the reporting to ensure it did not spread, pending a “fact check by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners” which, needless to say, never came — precisely because the archive was indisputably authentic.
Here is what Twitter users saw when they tried to share the story on Twitter:
A link to the NEW YORK POST is “spammy or unsafe”. And you can bet they punished people who shared the story with shadow banning. Twitter is a vile proponent of censorship.
Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki lied
And of course the Biden administration has no comment on their previous attempts to dismiss the laptop as “Russian disinformation”.
This is what the Biden spokeswoman said:
The New York Post notes:
White House press secretary Jen Psaki didn’t even bother trying to defend her past claim that The Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation” after the New York Times belatedly verified emails from the cache.
Psaki was pressed Thursday at her regular briefing about her own misleading remarks and those of then-candidate Joe Biden.
Psaki deflected without answering for Biden’s misinformation, which helped fuel Big Tech censorship of The Post’s reporting in the days prior to the 2020 election.
Surprise! She didn’t like being held accountable for her actions.
I blogged about the laptop on October 23, 2020. As poor as that post might have been, it was more accurate than all of the Democrat propagandists in Big Tech social media corporations and the mainstream news media outlets combined.
