New York Times Report Acknowledges Hunter Biden’s Laptop Is Real
A New York Times report on Hunter Biden’s tax bill and the federal investigation into his business dealings confirm the existence of the President’s son’s infamous laptop.
Hunter reportedly took out a loan to pay off more than $1 million in back taxes following a launch of a Justice Department inquiry into his tax affairs in late 2020.
The first son, just weeks after the election and only after his father’s victory had been certified, revealed that federal prosecutors in Delaware had been investigating him.
The New York Times reports on emails they “obtained” which have been examined by those prosecutors which purportedly reveal information about “foreign business activity” including the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, on whose board Hunter served.
“Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop,” the report reads.
They add, “The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”

Hunter Biden’s Laptop Confirmed
The media deliberately buried a New York Post story involving emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop prior to the 2020 presidential election.
The New York Post was censored on social media at the time – before the election – for sharing the story.
The New York Times was part of the effort to dismiss the story as “misinformation.”
“The story about the laptop was an old-fashioned, politically motivated dirty tricks campaign, and describing it with the word ‘misinformation’ doesn’t add much to our understanding of what happened,” they reported over a year later.
They initially described news of the laptop as “unsubstantiated” as late as September of 2021, but quietly altered that description.
The New York Post couldn’t help but jab the Times over their new admission that Hunter Biden’s laptop is legitimate.
“Forgive the profanity,” the Post Editorial Board wrote Thursday, “but you have got to be s–tting us.”

The New York Post noted how the Times finally admitted the emails on the laptop had been “authenticated.”
“Authenticated!!!” they replied. “You don’t say.”
“You mean, when a newspaper actually does reporting on a topic and doesn’t just try to whitewash coverage for Joe Biden, it discovers it’s actually true?”

Even as it seemed obvious that the President’s son’s laptop and its contents were legitimate, the media and Team Biden set about burying the story as ‘Russian disinformation.’
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, just a few months ago, grew rather irritated when a reporter asked questions about Hunter Biden’s infamous “laptop from hell” and challenged her to admit it was not Russian disinformation.
“My colleague Miranda Devine has a new book out called ‘The Laptop From Hell’, and I was hoping that you could confirm that the laptop is indeed authentic and not Russian disinformation as you seemed to suggest on Twitter last year,” New York Post reporter Steven Nelson asked.
Psaki would not confirm either aspect.
“As it relates to the book, I’ve neither had the time nor interest in exploring or reading the book,” she fired back.

I’d like to see that question posed to Psaki again now that the New York Times has admitted the laptop is real.
President Biden even made the ‘Russian disinformation’ claim well after the election.
“Mr. President-elect, do you still think that the stories from the fall about your son Hunter were Russian disinformation and a smear campaign like you said?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked.
Biden replied, “Yes, yes, yes.”
Joe Biden laughs when Fox News’ Peter Doocy asks if he still thinks the allegations against Hunter Biden are Russian disinformation:

TIME Magazine published an investigative piece titled, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” in February.
The report detailed how an extensive network of powerful and wealthy people ran a “shadow” campaign in order to ‘save’ the election and control the dissemination of information before and after.

“A well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage, and control the flow of information,” Time revealed.
The column references a little-known effort by “a veteran progressive operative” to combat “disinformation” on social media platforms.

Facebook and Twitter, of course, ended up playing large roles in the election.
Twitter stepped up to the plate by censoring and removing posts about the New York Post article involving emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The New York Times finally admitted the story is real. Why did it take so long?
The Post has a theory.
“Now we’re 16 months away from the 2020 election, Joe Biden’s safely in the White House, and the Times finally decides to report on the news rather than carry the Biden campaign’s water,” they write.
