The Biden campaign issued an incredibly weak response today after a bombshell New York Post story revealed a Ukrainian official emailed Hunter Biden in 2015 thanking him for allowing him to meet with his father, who was then-sitting Vice President.
Biden spokesman Andrew Bates told Politico that they reviewed the Vice President’s official schedules from the time of the meeting and “no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”
So, the campaign’s only defense is that it wasn’t on the Vice President’s official schedule so that means it didn’t happen?
As Arthur Schwartz points out, no one would expect the Vice President’s corrupt meeting with one of the top executives of a firm which was paying his son $50,000 a month to appear on his official White House schedule.
The Biden campaign’s response to the NY Post story is that Biden’s meeting with the corrupt official of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company isn’t on Biden’s official schedule. No one was expecting it to be on his official schedule. https://t.co/Pog0xqtsF5

Nancy Pelosi’s infamous maskless hairstyling appointment was also not part of her official schedule. Perhaps, that too didn’t occur.
Upon further review of Speaker Pelosi's “Official Schedule,” I found no mention of visiting a closed hair salon to get an illegal blowout without a mask so—did it not happen?

What is on the official schedule, however, was a meeting between Joe Biden and George Soros and Special Envoy and Coordinator of International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein at the White House. Both men are linked to Ukraine and energy.
This occurred on April 16, 2015, just one day before the bombshell Hunter Biden email was sent thanking him for inviting him to DC and giving him an opportunity to meet with Joe Biden.
What’s going on here?!

A Who’s Who of Legal Minds Arranged As Campaigns Prepare For Voter Fraud
Biden’s campaign told Fox News Monday that they have “created the largest election protection program in presidential campaign history.” It involves legal, communications and political strategies in anticipation of an ”unprecedented” election. Strategies include supporting election jurisdictions, voter education to raise awareness of the options they have and “aggressive responses to vote suppression activities, and robust programs for identifying and countering foreign interference and misinformation from foreign or domestic sources” reported Fox News.
A national team for “special litigation” was also developed to focus on state-by-state protection of voter access to polls and a “fair and accurate vote count. Leading the outreach program is Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General under the Obama administration. The Biden campaign source said despite the legal team they are putting together with hundreds of lawyers, thousands of lawyers and volunteers are involved in the overall voter protection program.
Similarly, Republicans have formed a “Lawyers for Trump” coalition aimed at protecting the “integrity” of November’s elections. “Democrats are working to shred election integrity measures one state at a time and there’s no question they’ll continue their shenanigans from now to November and beyond,” said Trump campaign general counsel Matthew Morgan.
“Lawyers for Trump” has some heavy hitters from the GOP and “Trump allied-attorneys like former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, former Attorney General Ed Meese and the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani” according to Fox News. Their agenda is to “Protect the Vote” for fear that “Democrats are trying to use coronavirus and the courts to legalize ballot harvesting, implement a nationwide mail-in ballot system, and eliminate nearly every safeguard in our elections.”
It is no secret Democrats are preparing for battle in the event of a Trump re-election. Trump’s 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton has already lent her two cents to Biden. She told him not to concede an election loss under “any circumstance.”
Let’s hope the American voters pick our next president, not a battle of the wits amongst legal minds.
Big-pockets Bloomberg Strikes Again
Bloomberg announced Friday that he will spend $40 million to flood the Florida airwaves with anti-Trump ads
Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody called on the FBI and state law enforcement Thursday to investigate whether billionaire Mike Bloomberg violated state law when he reportedly raised $16 million to pay the outstanding fines and restitutions of 32,000 convicted felons so they could vote in the upcoming election.
But that won’t stop him from reaching deeper into his pockets.
Even after his generous donation to the felons and his pledge to spend $100 million to defeat President Trump in the sunshine state, Bloomberg announced Friday that he will spend $40 million to flood the Florida airwaves with anti-Trump ads.
The massive TV ad buy, made through the Bloomberg-funded Independence USA PAC, comes the same week that nearly 5 million vote-by-mail ballots are being sent to Florida voters, the start of what will essentially be a month-long Election Day in the nation’s largest swing state, according to Politico.
Good timing, Bloomberg.
“This fall, the path to presidency goes through Florida — and with mail-in ballots going out this week, voters will soon start deciding who gets its 29 electoral votes,” Bloomberg said in a statement to Politico. “That’s why we’re doing everything in our power to tell the story of Donald Trump’s failed presidency and why we need Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.”
The $40 million will be used to push ads on cable and network TV in each of Florida’s 10 media markets, with Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville and Fort Myers as top-tier priorities, according to Politico. The ads will focus on the Trump administration’s response to COVID-19, the president’s attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and Biden’s economic development plan.
While an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Thursday had Trump ahead by 3 percent in the state, it is expected to be a close call like it was in 2016, when he scantily defeated Hillary Clinton by 113,000 votes.
Trump needs Florida.
But with Bloomberg having thrown $150 million into his de-Trumping Florida campaign, and with the election only 39 days away, now is crunch time for the president to secure his votes and swing the state in his favor.
