Cruz’s remarks came during a new episode of the senator’s podcast, which is called Verdict with Ted Cruz.
Cruz discussed allegations from an IRS whistleblower released by House Republicans this week, where an investigator on the Hunter Biden probe claimed there had been unprecedented efforts to prevent investigations into Joe Biden during the 2020 campaign and into his presidency.
Whistleblower Gary Shapley Jr. — who oversaw the IRS probe into the president’s son — said the IRS had obtained a WhatsApp message dated July 30, 2017, from Hunter Biden to Henry Zhao, CEO of Harvest Fund Management, in which Hunter alleged that he was with his father and named him to put pressure on Zhao to fulfill a commitment.
“And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.”
“I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father,” Hunter Biden reportedly said.
“This WhatsApp directly ties Joe Biden to the millions of dollars coming from communist China,” Cruz said. “Now, it is possible Hunter Biden was lying, it’s possible Joe Biden wasn’t next to him. It’s possible Joe Biden was not going to inflict official damage on the Chinese if they didn’t pay him and his son millions of dollars. That’s possible, but you know what, we don’t know if it’s true or not. Why? Because, according to the whistleblower, they didn’t investigate, and they were prohibited from investigating. They were prevented from even asking the question.”
“Let me be clear: This, on the face of it, is obstruction of justice,” he said. “And if Merrick Garland issued that order, he is the one blocking the investigation, and I think there’s real evidence of Merrick Garland being guilty of obstruction of justice.”
Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who has served in the Senate since 2013, said, “If you had a single Democrat who gave a flying flip about the rule of law, we would have a hearing right now with Merrick Garland in front of us, under oath, asking about this WhatsApp,” he said. “We would ask to see every document, we would ask to see every email, we’d ask to see every communication between DOJ and the investigators. We would put the IRS whistleblowers on the stand, under oath to testify about it, and we would confront Merrick Garland with that.”
As we alluded to many times, the former POTUS can’t hold his tongue. Always gives lip to situations which are meant to inflame his flock of trouble makers. In his latest vomit he tried to equate the INK given to the OceanGate disaster with a migrant boat calamity.
From our satellite view there is no equivocation. Those who attempt to fight the ocean on a skiff that is mean to hold 20 people, but is jam packed with 500 is as common as the locusts eating corn in Iowa, nothing new here. A daily occurrence that in the world of business is not ‘news worthy.’ In fact no one really cares. We can equate this to the migrants that venture to take on the Rio Grande, bodies wash up on a daily basis, no INK is given to them. This is not to say that no one cares, but in the world of business, these cases do not sell newspapers. We must add that Obama’s kin folk go on killing with vengeance in Chicago, but very rarely reported because this is not NEWS. Our advice to Obama, instead of fleeing to the Vineyard, CLEAN UP YOUR OWN BACK YARD, you floozie.
Back to Hussein Obama’s lip.
More than 300 Pakistani nationals have been killed in the sinking of a overcrowded fishing trawler off the coast of Greece, the latest tragedy to expose the refugee crisis confronting the European Union as tens of thousands seek sanctuary from war, persecution and poverty. We are aghast at the publish report that indicated many of those on board were fleeing war and persecution. Sorry but we didn’t know Pakistan was at war and many of its citizens were persecuted. Guess this scale of news reaches us slowly due to the primitive communication coming out of Pakistan.
Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan told lawmakers in the National Assembly that an estimated 700 migrants were on the boat when it sank June 14. Only 104 people, including 12 Pakistanis, were rescued and 82 bodies have been recovered. Officials say the victims paid the smugglers between $5,000 and $8,000 for the voyage. Paying smugglers as much as $8,000 doesn’t tally well with poverty. There are not many Americans, probably, two hundred million who don’t have $8,000. We dismiss poverty as a reason to flee. Most of these people fleeing are seeking refuge in Europe. The European countries are not too receptive to see hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants entering their shores taking jobs away from the home folk, causing ruckus and all sorts of trouble, plus adding to that the economic infliction on the local economy.
They say Pakistan, a mid-Asian country is in the midst of political turmoil. Poverty is as common as the Black Plague. The economy has been turned upside down. What else is new? This has been going on for tens of thousands of years, So where is the NEW in NEWS. However, not to lightly dismiss the tragedy of those who perished we offer our advice, stay where you are because the grass is not greener across the street. But, our hearts go out to those families who lost love ones.
The OceanGate implosion was World News because of those on board the submarine, which included Pakistani-born businessman Shahzada Dawood, 48, and his 19-year-old son, Suleman, both British citizens. Read more at:
Troublemaker extraordinaire, Obama calls out ‘obscene inequality’ in news coverage of OceanGate sub tragedy and sinking of migrant ship
Former President Barack Obama called out what he perceived as a double standard in media coverage of the tragedy of the OceanGate Titan submersible versus the migrant boat that sank off the coast of Greece last week.
In an interview with CNN host Christiane Amanpour (Muslim Father) in Athens, Greece Thursday night, the 44th president railed against “inequality” in our “democracy” and claimed the fact that news of the missing OceanGate sub dominated the news cycle, while the sinking of a migrant boat in the Mediterranean Sea did not, is an example of this “inequality.”
Obama noted that “democracy is not going to be healthy” due to this type of “obscene coverage”
Not for any reason did Obama get juiced in Rage, but as is his character, he is always spilling vile against the West for bigotry, bigotry in ways that continue to haunt him and will continue to haunt him until he meets his maker. As stated below in a previous post, Obama never misses an opportunity to throw gasoline on the fire of hate.
“It could have been me, it could be my son.” Referring to the Trayvon Martin incident. He directly brought, the White man, the liberal patron, into a situation that all Blacks faced at one time or another. These liberal patrons now think that they are Black and it could have happened to them. Imagine that?
This was a signal of “RAGE” to his followers. Growing up this never happened to Obama His life was a White life, never in the hood, his growing up years were spent in the lush island of Hawaii, not much Brothers there. Later at Columbia he was introduced to the Hood, which Columbia resides; then on to Chicago, the meat town, both animal and human. One big difference though. Animals are bred to be slaughtered, humans not.
That brings us to today where the killing by those from the Hood goes unpunished. Day after day we are witnessing the evil brought about by those personalities, the ones inflamed to rage by Obama, condoned by prosecutors and judges alike. Your life is at stake when murderers roam the streets unmolested; no bail, just show up on your own recognizance. That is the life we are living now.
A Rage of one segment of the population cannot rule over us. Prosecutors and judges must be held to account. If not, we will find the civil war which was ignited by Obama, slick as he was, the day will come when his kinfolk find out what true justice is. Believe us when we tell you, that day is coming sooner than you think.
The “whatever” is over but not for Prigozhin. He can run, but not hide for long.
Yevgeny Prigozhin is now in hiding, but we will tell you this Putin is only one step behind. If Prigozhin is in Belarus, his days are numbered because President Lukashenko is a Putin plant. Soon, Prigozhin will be a victim. One way or another he will be dosed with lethal polonium-210– which will induce acute radiation syndrome.
The War in Ukraine has been going on for close to a year and a half. Gee, didn’t Putin think it would be over in 6 days? Putin’s troops were inadequate for the job; drunken louts, most of them, not battle ready, either was their equipment. So, Putin hired the mercenary group, Wagner, to do the dirty work. But, as the war played out, Putin was blaming everyone for not conquering a lesser foe. The Wagner Group became the main focus of Putin’s ire. Spats started developing between the Wagner leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin and Vlad.
Before Putin had a chance of saying Хуй тебе, Prigozhin marched into Rostov on Don with his crew manning tanks and other armored vehicles. A takeover of Russia’s front line military headquarters was on-going.
Wagner Group leader Yevgeny Prigozhin accused of trying to stage coup as he claims to control parts of Russia’s military headquarters
Forces from Wagner Group, the private military contractor that had been fighting for the Kremlin in Ukraine, have reportedly crossed the border and stormed back into Russia, demanding the removal of the nation’s defense minister in the most serious threat to President Vladimir Putin’s authority since he took power in 2000.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, owner and founder of the mercenary organization, is calling for an armed rebellion and threatened to rush Moscow in order to oust the minister who he accused of ordering the bombing of his war camps in Ukraine. The Kremlin has called for his arrest on mutiny charges in response.
On Saturday, Prigozhin said his 25,000 soldiers had stormed into Rostov-on-Don — home to the Russian military headquarters for the southern region that oversees the fighting in Ukraine, close to where the Wagner forces had been deployed.
He claimed that his forces had taken control of the city’s military facilities, including the airfield, as military tanks rolled through the streets of Rostov-on-Don, according to videos posted online.
We are calling the Black Community to attention. They should be outraged for what has and is happening to the Cocaine Hunter. POTUS and his son have committed crimes that if a member of the Black Community committed the same would be in jail for life. The key would have been thrown away. So let’s see what the charges were.
Much else is curious about this latest Biden misadventure. Why, for example, did the Secret Service’s office in Wilmington, Del., reportedly get involved? Yes, that would be the same agency that was then providing protection for former Vice President Joe Biden as he was planning his 2020 presidential bid.
The Secret Service has nothing to do with firearms background checks (the bailiwick of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives), or with investigating misplaced guns (that’s the local cops’ job). Why would Secret Service agents try to get the gun dealer to surrender the paperwork from Hunter’s purchase?
Congress ought to be investigating — clearly, if a Republican were involved, Democrats would be in whirling dervish mode and the media would be swarming.
But that aside, there is a reason many “lie and try” cases do not get prosecuted: The applicant does not get the gun. Often, what is concealed is a prior conviction. The authorities discover it in reviewing the background check, and the purchase never goes through.
Those cases ought to be prosecuted more often, but it’s not true that charges are never filed. Even if it were true, this is not that situation. Biden got the gun and, predictably, lost it. That’s a case that ought to be charged 10 times out of 10.
Andrew C. McCarthy is a former federal prosecutor and contributing editor at National Review.
Hunter Biden’s plea agreement to misdemeanor tax offenses allows him to avoid federal felony charges for lying on a background check form when he purchased a firearm. Hunter Biden was an illegal user of crack cocaine at the time, which makes him ineligible to legally purchase or possess a firearm. The punishment for the felony offense of lying on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) Form 4473 is up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The firearm Hunter Biden purchased was later disposed of in a public trash can.
Charge One, lied when filing an application to purchase a firearm. See below.
Form 4473 — the Firearm Transaction Record — is a six-page document that must be filled out whenever someone buys a firearm from a licensed firearm dealer. It asks questions including whether the buyer is addicted to drugs, and is the actual buyer of the firearm. A tweet by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) Houston office said that lying on the form is a “federal violation and can lead to severe penalties and jail time.” A swarm of Twitter users asked why the bureau didn’t charge Hunter Biden, the president’s son, for allegedly lying on Form 4473 when he purchased a handgun in October 2018, the Washington Post reports. The controversy prompted the newspaper to request statistics from the Justice Department to determine whether someone falsely filling out the form face much a risk of prosecution. The answer? They don’t. The statistics are relevant as Congress discusses how to strengthen gun laws after high-profile mass shootings. They are a prime illustration of how existing laws are not always rigorously or consistently enforced.
Lying on the form is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. For being a user of unlawful drugs in possession of a firearm, the punishment is up to five years. The odds of being charged for lying on the form are virtually nonexistent. In the 2019 fiscal year, when Hunter Biden purchased his gun, federal prosecutors received 478 referrals for lying on Form 4473 — and filed just 298 cases. The numbers were roughly similar for fiscal 2020. At issue is when Biden answered “no” on the question that asks about unlawful drug use and addiction when purchasing a gun. Biden had been discharged five years earlier from the Navy Reserve for drug use and based on his 2021 memoir, he was actively using crack cocaine in the year he bought the gun. The data do not show how many people might have been prosecuted for falsely answering the question about active drug use. A 1990 Justice Department study noted how difficult it was to bring cases against people who falsely answer questions on the form, especially because there is no paper trail for drug abusers like there is for felons.
So the bottom line here is the Cocaine Hunter lied when he filled out an application to purchase a firearm, but in the end he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor. No jail time, record would be wiped clean. But there is more to the story here. Did he have a gun permit?
CHARGE TWO: Filing a false income tax return is a felony. The Cocaine Hunter did not declare $8,200,000. Al Capone went to the Iron Bar, so did Leona Helmsley, but not the Cocaine Hunter. He had contacts, big contacts. Two tier Justice system in play here. Jail the Criminal.
Tim Scott slams Obama, ‘radical left’ on education: ‘They have failed, they have failed, and they have failed’
Scott says there is ‘no higher compliment’ than being attacked by Obama
Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., had scathing words for President Barack Obama on “Fox News Sunday,” blasting the former commander in chief for his handling of race and education.
The 2024 presidential hopeful spoke with host Shannon Bream and homed in on the poor state of public education systems across the country, and addressed some criticism leveled at him by Obama last week.
“There’s no higher compliment than to be attacked by President Obama,” Scott said. “Whenever the Democrats feel threatened, they pull out – drag out – the former president, have him make some negative comments about someone running, hoping that their numbers go down.”
The bottom line here is easy to discern. They gave the Cocaine Addict son of POTUS a deal that was too hard not to take. On the face of it, it looks like he admitted to lying on a gun application and failing to file his IRS 1040. But the real facts are these: The Cocaine Hunter did not and this is the key in any deal, did not disclose who his accomplices were or where the $10 large went. We know the Big Man got $10 the bulk of the Shakedown Coin. An investigation is called for in order to trace the cash. From what we know, Branden has filed a false income tax return.
When deals are cut for a lesser sentence, the Police require something in return, in this case they GOT NOTHING. And that is what is called an INSIDE JOB. Secondly, for these minor offenses, if you want to call them minor, why did it take four years for the Cocaine Hunter to cop a plea? Who got the hush money?
Bill Barr says Hunter’s plea ups ante on DOJ to release doc alleging Biden bribery scheme: ‘critical’
Former attorney general says a key FBI document should be released as long as steps are taken to protect the confidential human source
EXCLUSIVE – Former Attorney General William Barr said it’s “even more critical” that the Department of Justice release a document alleging a criminal bribery scheme involving President Biden after a plea deal between prosecutors and the president’s son, Hunter.
The Justice Department announced on Tuesday that Hunter Biden will plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. The younger Biden also agreed to enter into a pretrial diversion agreement regarding a separate charge of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.
Barr said the DOJ should cooperate with House Republicans demanding that the FBI release the FD-1023 form – providing necessary steps are taken to protect the life and safety of the confidential human source in the document.
Hunter Biden’s plea deal is proof Democrats are ‘The Untouchables’ in Joe’s America
To express disappointment in the results of the Hunter Biden probe is to admit you ever believed it was an actual and honest investigation.
Shame on you, sucker.
Santa Claus is more real than the integrity of the FBI and Justice Department under Joe Biden. Friend and family discounts have never been so obvious — and odious.
For the other side of the coin, see the FBI’s tracking of parents who dared to criticize progressive school boards and agents who were willing to carry out an armed visit to the home of an anti-abortion protester. Traditional Catholics also were singled out for undercover surveillance.
“HE SHOULD BE SHOT” SAYS AN UPPITY
Democrat slammed after accidentally (NO ACCIDENT HERE-SAID IT ON PURPOSE) saying Trump ‘needs to be shot’
She is not the first, Schumer threatened a Supreme Court Justice, Water was to “take him out tonight” referring to Trump.
(CLICK)Maxine Waters ought to be arrested for being an accomplice to murder in the latest Big Apple shooting.
“I will go and take him out tonight.” Attempted Murder is the Charge. She tries to laugh it back, by saying that she is not talking about physical violence. Bullshit to that! WORDS MATTER.
She provoked the New York City individual to go on a shooting rampage yesterday. Her talk incited him and others to shoot and kill innocent victims all over America. This has got to stop, people like her have a responsibility to preach peace, not violence. She has continued her rabble rousing for decades.
And you get this guy Schumer who threatened Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. He is guilty as charged. “YOU HAVE RELEASED THE WORLD WIND AND YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE.”
There is the old saying that if you tell a lie over and over again it become truth. No one was more adapt at this than the renown propagandist for the Third Reich, Joseph Goebbels, until Joe Biden came along. He is the stalwart of lies, one step ahead of “Lock her up” and Barack Hussein Obama. Remember him, an American sell out to the Muslim world when he addressed his brethren at Cairo University.
But to press the point, no Pun intended here, when we say Press, we are referring to the FAKE NEWS PRESS, they take away the TOP PRIZE from Goebbels himself. In the past eight years, the lying, cheating scum who write the news rather than report it, have been lying through their keyboards like never before.
