  1. After watching the MSM/DNC hatchet job on Trump & Jan6, I’ll not agitate myself with any allegations within purview of DOJ, FBI, CIA, MSM, DNC, RNC, DOE, BoardsOfElections, CDC, Dominion, etc. (basically nihilsm beyond everything not mentioned in the Bible, the original Constitution [not the annotated one], the Declaration, and my own rational thinkng).

  2. Good riddance. I hope he understand his dishonesty is not welcome anywhere. I do wish the DOJ would act on their Biden leads, too.

  3. The speed with which the FBI/DOJ jumped on the George Santos case raises the question of how come nothing has been done with the trove of leads contained on Hunter’s laptop regarding corrupt behavior by the Biden Family, to sell political influence, tax evasion and making false statements? Oh well, the FBI/DOJ do have their priorities!
