"Hunter Biden's Emails - Using Russia-Gate To Cover Up CORRUPTION!"
The Jimmy Dore Show (October 22, 2020)
Jimmy Dore: "and the Democrats are trying to lie to you and gaslight you, trying to say that that's not true. That it's Russian disinformation. They have absolutely no evidence. All the evidence points the other way. They have no evidence to say that, but they're saying it. There it is." [shows tabloid paper banner headline]:
NEW YORK POST
Revealed: Ukrainian exec thanked Hunter Biden for 'opportunity to meet 'veep dad
BIDEN SECRET E-MAILS
Jimmy Dore: "And here is Chris Murphy, Senator from Connecticut, Democrat" [shows tweet]
Chris Murphy @ChrisMurphyCT Oct 17
Joe Biden - and all of us - SHOULD be furious that media outlets are spreading what is very likely Russian propaganda.
1/I've seen the intel. The mainstreaming of misinformation is Russia's 2020 goal. Here's what we know, and why we can't take it lying down.
Jimmy Dore: "He has no evidence for that. They just say it. So, do you remember Twitter was banning the New York Pos's article on Hunter Biden's e-mails. They banned it. If you tried to share it they would shut your thing down. Because they said it wasn't sourced. But what source is this? There's no source on that. He's just making that up. 'I've seen the intel.' No, you haven't."
"Ah, yes. The whole 'everything I don't like must be Russian.' It's like that old song from the radio where you're like, 'Geez. Are they still playing this?' They're still doing this." [shows headline]:
HUnter Biden Emails Have 'Nothing to Do' With Russian Disinfomation, National Intelligence Director Says -- Newsweek
Jimmy Dore: "So there's your intelligence community. So, when Trump doesn't agree with the intelligence community, he's a crazy whacko traitor. But when the Democrats don't agree with the intelligence community, it's because of Russians. They're good Americans. Isn't that interesting? And by the way, did we really need the Direector of National Intelligence to tell us that Russia had nothing to do with this? You could have just asked me or Aaron Maté. Or, how about Glenn Greenwald? [shows response tweet by Glenn Greenwald]
Does it matter if the Hunter Biden emails are, you know, true? If they're not true - forgeries - why hasn't Hunter or the Biden campaign said so (which, of course, they would do). And if they are real, how is that not a legitimate story to report (even if their origins also are)?
Jimmy Dore: "Those are real e-mails and Chris Murphy is pushing a conspiracy theory. And so is the media. Again, we're debunking conspiracy theories at The Jimmy Dore Show and the mainstream news media pushes them. But if you go to Wikipedia, it will tell you the exact opposite. Because Wikipedia is an extension of their surveillance state and the intelligence community. That's what Wikipedia is, It's run by the intelligence community. And that is why they say black is white and up is down and why Wikipedia is fucking garbage."
"It [the Biden e-mails] is a legimate story. And Chris Murphy is a conspiracy theorist, just like the rest of the Democrats and everybody at MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and CNN. Here's Joe Biden being asked about this by a reporter:
Reporter: "What is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?"
Joe Biden. "I knew you'd ask it. I have no response. It's another smear campaign. Right up your alley. Those are the questions you always ask"
Jimmy Dore: "So what he does is attack the reporter. The reporter asks him a legitimate question and all he has to do is deny it. Why doesn't he go: 'That's not a true story'? He's not doing that. He's attacking the journalist for asking the question. That's what Trump would do. This is his version of -- remember he told the Hispanic guy, 'Go vote for Trump.' This is him telling the reporter 'Go vote Trump.' So, he won't disavow the story, but he will wag his finger at a journalist. Just like Trump. This guy's better than Trump? Who's beng naive, Kay?"
[4:16] Jimmy Dore: "Joe Biden's going to get elected and you have a bigger problem the next day. Because that is a wolf in sheep's clothing. And everybody on the left is going to go to sleep. And they're going to do what they're doing now. 'Oh, no. Joe Biden isn't really, uh, doing horrible shit. He isn't ramping up the military budget. That's Russian disinformation. He isn't screwing you out of health care. That's Russian disinformation. Joe Biden isn't helping Wall Street screw you again. That's Russian disinformation. How long are they going to do this? Because Joe Biden is going to screw you hard for four years straight. Four years straight he's going to screw you as hard as possible.
Steph Zamorano: "Oh, come on Jimmy. When he's elected, that's the time we'll be able to push him left."
Jimmy Dore: "Here's what Paula Reed says:
Biden adopts Trump's playbook [emphasis added] -- attacking pool reporter @BoKnowsNews for asking about Hunter Biden story which has been the focus of President Trump's campaign over the pas few days. Fine to attack the story, but why personally insult Bo?
[5:14] Jimmy Dore: "Because that's what Joe Biden does. That's him bringing decency back to America. By the way, his [Obama's] administration prosecuted journalists. Way more than Donald Trump's did. Used the Espionage Act to prosecute whistleblowers and journalists. Is tghat 'standing in the light,' Rolling Stone, you garbage organization? What a garbage paper. Here's Neera Tanden:
Neera - Vote Early - Tanden
How are you all circling the wagons instead of being embarrassed for peddling Russian ops 18 days before the election. It's not enough that you all haven't learned from your atrocious handling of 2016 -- you are doubling down. Truly incredble.
[6:03] Jimmy Dore: "Everything she says, she must be saying to a mirror, right? Because that's exactly what they're doing. They're putting up a worse candidate than Hillary Clinton and blaming the Russians again."

Replying to @neeratanden
The media in most of Europe is so much more responsible than American media. After 2016, I thought they would have more responsibility. It's incredibly depressing that they are doing Russi's bidding again.
[6: 29] Jimmy Dore: "The rest of the world doesn't do Russiagate." [shows response tweet from Glenn Greenwald]
Dem Party hacks (and many of their media allies [like Neera Tanden]) genuinely believe it's immoral to report on or even discuss stories that reflect poorly on Biden.
In reality, it's the responsibility of journalists to ignore their vapid whining and ask about newsworthy stories, even about Biden
Jimmy Dore: "That's pretty bold to suggest journalists should just be committed to the truth and not have an agenda, Glenn. That's pretty radical."
Not even Hunter or the Biden campaign claims the emails are forgeries -- which they'd obviously do if they were. And of course its relevant whether Biden's sone tgried to or in fact succeeded in getting his dad to do his dirty work in Ukraine for cash. Not cataclysmic, but newsworthy.
Replying to @ggreenwald
A journalist's credibility does not depend on how popular they are among Democratic partisans. Craving that popularity is almost certain to lead journalism into corrupted realms. Enduring and dismissing partisan Twitter attacks is a necessary part of being a good journalist.
Jimmy Dore: [7:42] "You should go to my Twitter feed. There are lots of hacks that come at me all the time. That's how I know I'm doing something, when you get the Democratic hack apologists that attack me. That's how you know you're doing something right. When blue-check Hollywood attacks you, that's how you know you're doing something right. By the Way, this is from 2008 in the New York Times when they still would report on Joe Biden:
Obama Aides Defend Bank's Pay to Biden Son
August 24, 2008 -- New York Times
Jimmy Dore: "Let's go look at that story:
During the years that Joe Biden was helping the credit card industry win passage of a law making it harder for consumers to file for bankruptcy protection, his son had a consulting agreement that lasted five years with one of the largest companies pushing for these changes, aides to Barack Obama's presidential campaign acknowledged Sunday.
Hunter Biden, who works as both a lawyer and lobbyist in Washington, a company official described him as having a $100,000 retainer -- The New York Times
Steph Zamorano: "Oh, is that to help people?"
Mr Biden's son, Hunter, received consulting fees from the MBN?A Corporation from 2001 to 2005 for work on online banking issues -- New York Times
[9:09] Jimmy Dore: "Hey. Does your password work? Here's a hundred thousand."
The financial services industry began seeking relief from Congress in the mid-1990s from an increase in bankruptcies that was cutting into its profits.
Biden was one of the first Democratic leaders to support the bnakruptcy bill, and he voted for it four times in 1998, 2000, 2001 and in March 2005, when its final version passed the Senate with Biden's vote. -- New York Times
Jimmy Dore: "The bankruptcy bill that screwed people, not helped them. Joe Biden was the first guy to be for a bankruptcy bill that screwed people in bankruptcy, not helped them."
Biden helped defeat amendments aimed at strengthening protections for people forced into bankruptcy who have large medical bills or are in the military. -- New York Times
"That's what Joe Biden did. This is from 2008. Does this sound exactly like Trump? Except Trump probably wouldn't do that to people in the military."
Biden was one of four Democrats who sided with Republicans to defeat an effort to protect debtors from the predatory lenders who helped push them into bankruptcy. -- New York Times
Jimmy Dore: "That's Joe Biden."
fSteph Zamorano: "And he's going to have Republicans in his cabinet. I wonder how that's going to work out for us."
Jimmy Dore: "This is your antidote? Do you know why you got Trump now, you assholes? This is why you got Trump. You Rolling Stone pieces of garbage." [shows picture of Joe Biden on Rolling Stone magazine cover]:
Biden's Moment Why he is the right leader to rebuld America
Jimmy Dore: "Now you know why you got Donald Trump. It's amazing to see. It's amazing to see people on the left doing McCarthy smearing, sabre rattling, ramping up a Cold War, and now pushing conspiracy theories to protect a corrupt corporate politician. That's a cospiracy theory, that the Russians had something to do with these emails. That's an evidence-free conspiracy theory. Conspiracies happen all the time. That's an evidence-free conspiracy theory."
"Why do you think the Democrats don't go harder against Donald Trump for his sons' using that office to line their pockets? Why do you think the Democrats don't do that? Why do you think they don't go after him for the Emoluments Clause? Why do you think that is? Why the Democrats don't go after Donald Trump and his family for lining their pockets while in government? It's because they're doing it. That's why. Joe Biden has made 15 million dollars since he left the [Vice] presidency. Just a regular guy. Joe Biden, who has no skills. He made 15 million dollars since he left the [Vice] presidency. Barack Obama lives on a 48[?] acre estate on Martha's Vineyard. He bought it from the guy who owned the Boston Celtics. You know, Barack Obama, a regular community organizer."
"So now you know why the Democrats couldn't find [a reason] to impeach him on his corruption, Donald Trump, and they had [to settle for] a phone call to the Ukraine. Because they're guilty of it, too. And you're all suckers and chumps if you think voting for Joe Biden makes anything better. You are dumb. On purpose. Suckers. And chumps. You've got a bigger problem when Joe Biden becomes president, because now everybody is going to go to sleep. And that's when you're going to get a real fucking revolution. Because people are going to be hurting and he ain't going to do shit. And everybody's going to be running interference for him. Everybody like Rachel Maddow, half of youtube, CNN, the New York Times, Washington Post, Rolling Stone. Congratulations Democrats. You did it again."
