Can the mainstream media be punished for Hunter Biden election interference?

The drive-by media committed election interference by lying about Hunter Biden. I think there’s a a common law remedy against them.

In October, the New York Post revealed that Hunter Biden was in bed with Russia, China, and Ukraine, and that Joe Biden was a part of it. As I like to say, the information from what is indubitably Hunter’s hard drive showed that Joe Biden pimped his son to various countries with interests antithetical to America. In exchange, Biden got a cut from the money that flowed in. He did the same with his brother, James.

The evidence was incontrovertible: Joe Biden is not just corrupt in the way of an ordinary politician making money from graft; he sold out America for his and his family’s enrichment. Rather than seemingly heading for the White House, he should be heading for Club Fed (where he should have a cell next to Bill Clinton, while Hillary tries to dominate her sector in the women’s Club Fed). But nobody said that life was fair and America has become, I think, an irredeemably corrupt nation. Trump tried valiantly, but the task of cleaning out the Augean stable was too great for one man.

Of course, the Hunter Biden scandal isn’t just Hunter Biden — it’s also the media. The media did everything possible to squash the story:

We know that this media cover-up affected the election — so much so, that it’s reasonable to believe that, but for the cover-up, Trump would have sailed to victory. Even fraud would not have been enough to scale that difference.

Now, though, the media have a different goal: They believe they got Trump out of the White House. Now they need to get Biden out too. After all, we all understand that he was a mask, a puppet, a figurehead, and a phony. He existed solely as a vehicle to get Kamala Harris into office. She will be Obama’s third term and America’s Chavez/Maduro. That’s why the media, which could have continued to stifle the Hunter story, is suddenly reporting it. Joe Biden needs to be tainted and given the boot ASAP.

What the media did was extraordinarily corrupt and it constituted very real, very effective election interference. The problem, as many have pointed out, is that the media didn’t break any laws. I wonder, though, if they can be sued. This is a very inchoate idea, but wouldn’t it be lovely if the media could be financially broken?

Here’s the way I see it: The mainstream media have represented to Americans that they are purveying comprehensive and accurate information. Since 2017, CNN has been using as one of its slogans, “Facts first.” It also claims to be “the most trusted name in news.” The New York Times has long claimed to provide “all the news that’s fit to print.” Even if their mottos aren’t so explicit, all of the mainstream media outlets implicitly and intentionally hold themselves out to the public as sources of reliable information that will help citizens become informed voters.

These are promises these outlets are making to the American public: If you rely on us, you will be informed. You will know the important stories. You will be an informed voter able to make the correct choice on all the information available.

Yet with the Hunter Biden revelations, as those videos show (and the Times and WaPo did the same thing in print), the mainstream media deliberately lied about and suppressed a major news story. Moreover, they did so because the story ran counter to their openly stated desire to get Trump out of the White House, and Kamala Harris (oh, and Joe) into the White House.

So media outlets consistently did two things before the election when it came to the Hunter Biden story that they now acknowledge was true: They told affirmative lies and they omitted information in what they reported to an American public that relied upon them for accurate information in assessing presidential candidates. The media outlets did so deliberately, with the intended purpose of affecting people’s vote-making decisions.

We know that people relied upon these misrepresentations and omissions in casting their votes. Had they not been on the receiving end of bad information, they would have voted differently and that would have changed the election outcome.

Lawyers know where I’m going with this. I’m describing the elements of fraud by commission and omission. Here are the elements of both causes of action from the California Civil Jury Instructions. By the way, the last time I prepared jury instructions, the state still had some semblance of sanity and did not contemplate that people could jettison human biology and pretend to be something other than male or female

Any enterprising lawyers out there?

If Democrats didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards

The Democrats’ “You’re stupid, so shut up” response to claims about election fraud are the apex of their double standards.

We all remember the last four years: The public breakdowns, the “Trump is Hitler” garbage, the attempted coup, the “He’s not my president” crap, etc. And that was just Hillary. The whole left had a collective breakdown and they did so without any evidence whatsoever.

For three years, despite a complete absence of documentary or witness evidence, Democrats asserted with an absolutely straight face that Trump had colluded with Russia to win the White House. All they had was the classic conspiracy: invisible dots connected by imaginary lines. Notwithstanding the Mueller Report, which spent two years and $35 million dollars to find absolutely nothing, many still contend that the Russia Hoax was, in fact, true.

Since the election, the Trump team has assembled thousands of affidavits from ordinary citizens providing specific details about incidences in which they saw people charged with counting ballots violate rules. The people who signed these affidavits did so under the penalty of perjury. Post workers who blew the whistle took the risk that they’d lose their jobs. In addition to eye-witness statements, there are uncounted videos showing illegal or improper conduct in connection with vote counting.

The media (including Fox’s Neil Cavuto, among others) consistently state that the allegations about fraud in vote counting are “untrue” and “unfounded”:

Politico: “Trump camp stokes fear over unfounded claims of mass voter fraud in Philly”

NPR: “FACT CHECK: Trump Falsely Claims Widespread Fraud In Latest Election Speech”

HuffPost: “Trump Voters Have Been Primed For His Bogus Voter Fraud Claims For Years”

Washington Post: “GOP splits over Trump’s false election claims, unfounded fraud allegations”

I could do this all day. Every single media outlet calls the allegations “unfounded” or “bogus” or some variation on that. Understand that every media outlet is callin ordinary citizens liars.

The same double standards appear with the Democrats’ “shock” that Republicans are not accepting the media’s claim that Biden won the election. Democrats spent four years screaming about a stolen allegation based upon a the Steele Dossier. We know now that Hillary colluded with Russian operatives to buy that Dossier. Again, there was not a scintilla of evidence (and Andrew Weissman looked harded) that anyone other than Hillary — and certainly not Trump — colluded with Russia.

Now, though, Trump supporters are being told “shut up.” James Wood had the best response:

Sen. Mitch McConnell didn’t do so badly either:

Let’s not have any lectures, no lectures, about how the president should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election and who insinuated that this one would be illegitimate too if they lost again — only if they lost. The people who push this hysteria could not have any more egg on their faces than they do right now.

What you’ll also discover if you pursue those links is that the Democrats’ and NeverTrumpers’ argument against conservative/pro-Trump contentions is “shut up.”

Whatever you do, don’t let the same Democrats who still claim, without evidence, that Trump isn’t their president, gaslight you into giving up on Prsident Trump’s fight now. This fight is real, it’s big, and we can and should win.

(As an aside, and I don’t have time to develop it, look at the double standards re the Democrat virus: If conservatives gather — for example, at Trump rallies — we’re all going to die. If leftists gather — whether BLM, Antifa, or Biden parties — nothing bad will happen.)

One more thing: Remember that Biden is a truly awful human being. He’s been a government parasite for 48 years. He sold our country out to the Chinese, the Russians and anyone else who would pay him. He has a history of open racism, whether because of his friendship with KKK types or his awful pronouncements about race. Even if he isn’t an active pedophile, he’s a creep around little girls. There is a credible sexual assault allegation against him. Politically, he’s been wrong on every issue. He’s continually and falsely accused Trump of being a racist and, by implication, accused half of America of being racist. He’s a known liar and plagiarizer.

By any metric, Biden isn’t the chewing gum that gets stuck to the bottom of your shoe. That’s too kind. He’s the mixture of chewing gum, slimy hawked loogies, and dog poop that lies at the edge of every gutter in every big city.

The election: If you’ve got the coattails, you’ve got to have the coat

The fact that there is a red wave on the down-ballot votes in the swing states is all the proof you need that the Biden surge is a fraud.

Initially, I thought it marginally possible that Americans, after the four-year, nonstop media drumbeat against Trump, combined with the media’s and tech tyrants’ censoring anything negative about Democrats, might indeed have elected Joe Biden. Now, though, I’m convinced that the apparent Biden victory is a result of pure, untrammeled fraud in Democrat-run jurisdictions.

I haven’t reached this conclusion for the obvious reasons. That is, I don’t look for my proof of fraud in back-dated ballots, as happened in Michigan post offices. I also ignore Pennsylvania’s rabid efforts to lock out election observers; Nevada’s mobster-like voting, which is cheating on an epic scale; the shenanigans in Georgia; or any of the other apparently numberless examples of overt fraud.

For me, it’s all about coattails. When we looked at the rallies for Trump, especially in the Rust Belt swingstates, we saw coattails. That is, we knew that every one of those rally attendees would vote for Trump.

We also knew that these were not split-ticket voters. That is, they wouldn’t vote for Trump and then for a Democrat Senate candidate (both for Congress and their home state’s Senate). Likewise, looking at these rapturous crowds, it was inconceivable that they’d vote for a Republican House member but still select Biden as their president.

In the swing states (indeed, in all the states), this was all about Trump’s coattails: These voters would go to the polls and vote a straight Republican ticket to keep Trump in the White House and give him the Congress he needs to get the job done. And then, while they were at it, they’d cast votes their votes for Democrats in the state elections.

And by golly! Those coattails were there. I’m not going to take the time to hunt down the numbers but will quote Steven Hayward’s summing up because I trust him to be right about the facts:

Most pre-election forecasts were certain that Republicans would lose ground in the House of Representatives, but as of this moment, it is not impossible that Republicans might take the House right now. They elected a record number of GOP women candidates. (Incidentally, Republicans did well in state legislative races around the country, and didn’t lose control of a single chamber.)

The GOP has gained about 10 House seats so far, and is currently leading in about 20-25 more. (I’m not keeping up with the moment-by-moment counts in any of these races.) Not all of these leads are expected to hold up, but Speaker Pelosi is going to have a very slim majority come January, and may even face a leadership challenge.

In addition, notwithstanding what I’m certain was fraud against John James in Michigan, the Republicans are holding the Senate.

I am positive that every one of those conservative votes was a coattail vote.  Nevertheless, we’re being told that this ginormous red wave across the country was paired with the same voters happily marking “Joe Biden” on their ballot. Bunkum! That’s completely unbelievable.

It’s especially unbelievable when, as Trump said in his statement on Thursday night, he was leading in almost every state — at which point the swing states locked down the counting and waited like frogs on a lily pad looking for flies — and what were these flies? They were ballots that floated in from everywhere, in the tens of thousands, all for Biden.

But here’s the kicker: While they were all for Biden, they didn’t change those coattail votes! Just as it’s inconceivable that people whose down-ballot votes were conservative would then choose Biden for president, it’s inconceivable that people who honestly voted for Biden would vote for conservatives on the rest of the ballot or even leave the rest of the ballot blank.

The only way to account for the bizarre fact that Trump and a red-wave of conservatives won on election day, while Biden and a red-wave of conservatives won the day after election, is to accept that all those day-after Biden votes are fraudulent. The people committing the fraud don’t have time to fill out an entire ballot. They’re just ticking of Biden’s name and letting the rest go.

To me, this is all the evidence I need showing fraud on a massive scale: Trump’s coattails won but we’re being asked to believe that his coat didn’t.
