Super-Secret Damning Hunter Biden Documents Mysteriously Vanish

Mish

Tucker Carlson says damning documents were lost in the mail.

And No One Thought to Make a Copy

"I don't want to be too snarky but Trump needs to close a big polling deficit and this is the message on a day with 80k new COVID cases and a 940 point decline in the Dow," responds Nate Silver.

Biggest Story

Dear Donald Trump

 The biggest news story is your failure to learn anything from Hillary, then the most despised candidate ever. 

 You are now the most despised and will go down in flames. 

 The only difference: She blamed Russia not herself. You will blame the media not yourself.

I wrote that last night before the documents vanished.

We can now safely add "The dog ate my homework before I made copies," thesis.

Reflections on Copies

Reflections On Copies

Let's for a moment assume there are copies.

Then, if there is any substance to them, Team Trump is damn foolish sitting on that evidence while 60+ million people vote. 

There is no damning evidence. 

Sitting on the Documents?

The shipper has not figured out how it disappeared. The interesting part is that it disappeared. How it was stolen is more the story here.

Of course they made paper copies and digital copies. Who ships copied documents in the mail anyways? I don’t get it.

The only bad publicity is no publicity. Thanks for helping to keep the words "Corruption", "Biden", "Secretive", and "Damning" at the forefront of peoples' minds!

well,mark my words. Based on both candidates solar return birth chart.Trump is in a period signify 11th House (Victory !) while Biden is in a period signify 7th house ( Competitor house) which mean he will lose to Trump. It is destined Trump will win the election eventhough i don't really like both of them. corrupted as hell and arrogant and evil.

And if you believe that damning evidence ever existed, then Jo will be in the White House in January.

A likely explanation is a ripped package somewhere. contents fell out.

Something like that.

Why is this "news" worth 5 minutes of air time? I've never heard any other news organization report a story like "we were doing an investigative piece, but lost really important evidence in the mail." Is that what passes as news on the FNC nowadays?

I think he's insinuating something which he has no evidence of. How does this fall under journalism, news, commentary, or even opinion on a major news network? Does FNC routinely peddle baseless conspiracy theories nowadays (even after the departure of Glenn Beck)?

The whole 2020 script has gone off the rails. Next thing we know Putin will come out of the closet, abdicate, and get a job at a think tank. And Xi will dress up for Halloween in a Winnie the Pooh costume and announce his candidacy for President of Taiwan.

Even if they can locate the docs, it doesn't matter. Hardly anyone voting for Biden is doing so because they believe he's especially trustworthy anyway.

We've graduated from an era of platforms and ideas to whatever the hell this is, just making sure the printer still goes brrrr and antagonizing people we don't like.

If there was a document and it was stolen....I bet the carrier was Fedex. I have stuff stolen from them before. Typically they use the tracking number to find out it was somehow routed to S. Dakota but they are not sure where it when after that. LOL

How to spot a liar, part 2:

Dad: Bobby says you broke the window at the Robinson's with a ball?
Honest Kid: No, I was at Tony's place. Ask his mother!
Liar: Bobby's just saying that because I'm better at soccer.

Question: Did you accept money from abroad for political influence?
Honest politician: Untrue. An examination of records will prove where all our money came from.
Liar: This is just Russian disinformation. It's been completely debunked.

You are missing the point. Tucker has a Qanon following. Last week he went went after an NbC reporter for reporting on QAnonon

If they had one copy of a game changing document, which they put in the mail, no photocopies, no scanned e-copy that would pretty much define why these people shouldn’t be in charge of anything more important that an ice cream stand....but even that this is the best lie they could come up with is pretty sad.

Sme other things about this phoney deal...

....incriminating information supposedly located on a Hunter Biden laptop left in a Delaware computer shop had in fact been circulating in Ukraine well before it was reportedly turned over to Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer. Over the weekend, Time reported that the Hunter Biden emails and photos were being shopped in Kiev last fall by somebody who “wanted to sell it to Republican allies of President Trump.” Several days later, Politico reported the “Hunter Biden laptop” material was being shopped around by a “Ukrainian oligarch looking for help with a potential legal jam” as early as spring of 2019.

Another oddity in the timing, as Andrew Prokop noticed, is that the star witness for Fox News and Trump, Tony Bobulinski, claimed he only came forward because he was outraged at the response to the New York Post story first reporting the email hacks. But Ben Smith reported in the New York Times that Bobulinski was working with Trump’s campaign to pitch the story to the Wall Street Journal, before they settled for giving it to the New York Post. (The Journal duly reported that they had no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe Biden.)...

Meanwhile, Biden offer sympathy for the declining state of the Post Office..

We disagree with Tucker Carlson on the issues, but no one should ever lose their mail. Joe will make sure the USPS receives the funding it needs to prevent this from happening, and end Trump and DeJoy’s efforts to sabotage it so that people like Tucker can get their mail on time.

The most logical explaination is that the serious lawyers/analysts reviewed the "documents", found them entirely spurious and potentially hazardous to the survival of Fox, pulled them and said "tell them that they were lost in the mail".

I think the Bidens were running a side business. I believe the Clinton Foundation was a bribery conduit. And I believe Trump paid little taxes over the last few years and that's the primary reason he won't release his returns. The evidence for is far greater than the evidence against.

I'm with NBJR, FOX lawyer got the "documents" saw that it was bullshit and could cause FOX legal problems and told Carlson: "just tell your listeners that the documents were lost/stolen, spin it on Qanon,they will believe anything!

A reminder to Mish Talk readers that the Church Commission revealed many things that nowadays would be called 'conspiracy theory.' If you don't know what the Church Commission was, perhaps you should find out.

The selection below is not to support Q (anon) or any other conspiracy theory: it comes from an anonymous book, shocking in its detail, but supposedly fiction. It was published on Amazon six months before the Q releases.

“The mass of mankind accept what seems as what is; nay, are often touched more nearly by appearances than by realities," Machiavelli wrote. (Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius) Foolishly, we choose news outlets confirming our biases, and believe our choices are the most truthful, with no more proof than empty assertions and questionable facts. We deride other points of view as ‘fake news.’ It is intellectually and emotionally ‘safer’ that way. We stop thinking critically. We call out as ‘shills’ and ‘trolls’ anyone who dares to differ. We become the unthinking masses. Again, to quote Machiavelli, “There are three classes of intellects… one which understands things by itself; the second which appreciates what others can understand; and a third which neither understands for itself nor through others; the first kind is excellent, the second is good enough, the third is useless.”

News update: UPS found the missing documents but are mum about the details. Tucker remarked that FOX is getting a lot of information concerning Hunter's personal life that they are choosing not to disclose. As much as I despise Hunter and everything he represents, good for Fox and other networks/platforms that keep the discourse within the bounds of decency.

Greenwald adopts the Trumpista language....

Glenn Greenwald tells Tucker Carlson 'the left is in bed with a CIA set on destroying Trump'

The journalist, part of a team that won a Pulitzer for reports about government surveillance programs based on leaks by Edward Snowden, told the Fox New host that the left's 'healthy skepticism of the CIA' has 'all disappeared'.

Greenwald, who announced his resignation from the The Intercept Thursday, added: 'The reason it's disappeared is because the CIA from the very first days of the Trump administration, even before he was inaugurated, devoted themselves to sabotaging the inauguration because Donald Trump questioned a few of their pieties and that can't be done in Washington.

'So the CIA and the deep state operative became heroes of the liberal left, the people who support the democratic party. They are now in a full union with the neocons and the Bush Cheney operatives, the CIA, silicon valley and Wall Street.

'That is the union of power, along with along with mainstream media outlets, that are fully behind the democratic party which is likely to at least take over one branch of government, if not all of them, in the coming election and that's a very alarming proposition because they are authoritarian, they believe in censorship and suppression of information that exposes them in any kind of a critical light.'

Greenwald then suggested members of the CIA, DoJ, FBI and NSA now 'tell Americans what they ought to believe'. He added: 'They have infiltrated the means of communication domestically. If they do it through leaks, clandestine operations and through lies.'

Why no follow up with facts?
UPS stated that they found the package ripped open at their sorting center and after further investigation found the documents and a thumb drive.
Are you asserting that UPS is now part of Q Anon or that they deliberately tanked their own corporate brand?
What about some honesty here, this story is relevant if news about the Biden Family corruption is being suppressed, which it is. Are you okay with suppression of facts?
