OMG. What happened to the Republicans worrying about inflation? Has that suddenly taken a back seat to the threat of Hunter Biden??? Would putting Hunter behind bars suddenly bring about lower prices for Oil and Groceries?

Did we not just listen all summer and fall about the disastrous economy and inflation that this country is suffering from?

Have the Republicans all of a sudden determined that Hunter Biden is the root cause of Putin's War?

Is this the secret solution that none of the Republicans running for office were willing to put forth during the campaign?

Did you not see his statement.

They are investigating JOE Biden, not Hunter.

As for inflation, I'm sure they plan to block as much legislation/spending bills as possible.

These investigations into the Bidens really have you in a huff patom.

Worried that they might find something?

And yes, merely blocking the Democrats' disastrous agenda for America will significantly help to reduce inflation.

Rugian, Why would I be worried about their finding anything. Their track record hasn't exactly been stellar in finding anything they can convict any one on yet. 30 + years of going after the Clintons and what have they got?

There's a good reason for that patom.


The Clintons simply murder anyone that could testify to their nefarious lifestyle of crime and corruption.

I don't want to hear any whining. Biden had 2 years to round up all the insurrectionists and chose not to because he wants to pretend that Republicans are just regular Americans who love their country.

I hope they drag his daughter in front of the House and ask her were Biden touched her in the shower.

Rugian & murder, will investigating Hunter or bringing someone's daughter to testify fix what the Republicans were crying about for the last year during the election cycle?

If so, I would love to know how it will cure inflation.

No it won't, but I don't care. Biden brought this on himself.

As far inflation goes, there's only one known cure. Jack up the rates until you manufacture a recession. Everything from labor to raw materials seem to be in short supply, so we have to force everyone to use less of everything until demand and supply level out.

So you don't mind if you disillusion more Republican voters that were stupid enough to believe that the Republicans were concerned with inflation?

What did 6 years of investigating Trump accomplish? How about impeachment, what did that accomplish?

You can't spend the better part of a decade being endlessly obsessed with bringing down the orange man, and then be shocked when Republicans want to do the same to your senile corrupt idiot.

Patom, Your watching too much far left media.

Joe Biden is under investigation hunter is one of many others that happen to be in the background.

No one cares if he snorts coke off of hookers asses.

As for inflation many do also support limiting funding to the Ukraine.

Well a lot of Republicans seem eager to toss Trump overboard, so I would say they accomplished a lot.

And how would that reduce inflation?

By reducing inflation, you of course mean helping mother Russia.

Biden is under investigation for WHAT??? At least the Clintons investigations started with some accusations of supposed wrong doing. To this day I believe those were brought about as punishment for the temerity of trying to introduce Universal Health Care to this country.
Trump investigations were brought about by his actions, from many women and girls he supposedly had relations with, (not convicted yet). To his involvement with the events of Jan. 6. Which if you recall was televised and all could see.

You still have not detailed what the charges are that you want investigated that Joe Biden has supposedly done.

Or is this investigation nothing more than a distraction in order for people to forget about what was touted as the #1 concern among voters.
INFLATION.

There are no legitimate charges. This is GOP politics. I've been explaining this for years now. The GOP spent years brainwashing themselves into believing that the left and the center in conspiracy with the left acted nefariously in all manner of ways, and this mindset has granted them license to violate every norm that ever existed.

The reason that right wing news lies blatantly and is shamelessly biased is because they have convinced themselves that that is what the left and the center in conspiracy with the left has been doing for years. So while you see lies and bias, all they see is fighting fire with fire.

The same goes for investigations. No matter how legitimate the investigation, the right has brainwashed themselves into believing that it is just a political attack. That it is the use of Congressional and judicial power to destroy the right and right wing figures. So where you see a pointless and meritless "investigation" that is transparently just harassment, all they (Hababe) see is fighting fire with fire.

Remember that these people have convinced themselves that Ashli Babbitt is some sort of martyr ... and never mind that she was killed while engaged in the violent assault on the Capitol and the attempted assault/murder of our elected leaders and the overthrow of the government and the installation of a dictator. She may as well be MLK Jr as far as they are concerned, and as much a victim of government oppression as George Floyd ... except that she's innocent and he had it coming.

The bullshit false equivalence runs deep.

Its true that many of the true believers think theyre fighting fire with fire and doing what the enemy has been doing all along, but this is how we often make excuses for behaviour we actually know deep down is dodgy.

There's nothing deep down about it. I say loud and proud every single day.

The right went after Clinton to get even for the Nixon and Reagan investigations ... even though both were proven to be criminals.

And by the way, the Benghazi obsessed GOP never say a single god damn thing about Reagan letting this happen ...

They say fuck all about it.

Hillary needed prosecuting though.

Murder I have reminded many Reagan worshipers about that many times and none of them have a plausible answer.
To my knowledge, that is the first and last time the US has ever ordered its troops to NOT load their weapons in a War Zone. Beirut was most definitely an active War Zone at the time of this. I have a friend who was out on a detail when the Barracks were blown up. He still has shrapnel in his leg from his service in Lebanon.

Patom, There is alot, and some of it will likely be divulged further as the investigation goes on.

But Biden initially is primarily being investigated for his foreign business dealings in China and the Ukraine.Everytbing Everything from receiving payments for influence to human trafficking apparently.

Murder, You speak of breaking norms, but the norms have been broken after a 6 year witch hunt against Trump for any and everything.

He is the most investigated politician of all time.All for political posturing.

This is GOP retaliation for that, so yes also very much political posturing.Did Joe likely do some shady or illegal shit? Sure, you know the DNC motto "Show me the man and I'll show you the crime"

The other investigations are not.Such as the FBI and covid origins.

No, not even close.

Not a single witch hunt. Just stacks of crimes he's never been charged with.

What are you smoking Habebe? Your boy Trump is a loser again if there is a contest to see who is the most investigated.
6 straight years of investigations?? How about 30 years of continuous investigations of all things Clinton.
