Kristen Welker, Upcoming presidential Debate Moderator, Has Deep Democrat Ties

All eyes are turning to NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker as she prepares to host the third and final presidential debate Thursday.

President Trump and Joe Biden will square off at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., in a 90-minute debate starting at 9 p.m.

Welker, 44, has been the White House correspondent at NBC News since 2011, after working as a news reporter in Rhode Island.

But Trump supporters who took issue with hard questioning by previous moderators like Chris Wallace and Savannah Guthrie may find themselves pining for those combative hosts after Welker is done with the president.

Welker comes from an established Democratic family — who have poured cash into party coffers, and to Trump opponents, for years.

Her mother, Julie Welker, a prominent real estate broker in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to $20,000 to Barack Obama alone. Read more…

Person On Email Thread Allegedly Involving Hunter Biden Verifies Veracity Of The Messages, Report Says

A person who was reportedly on an email chain allegedly involving Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, confirmed to Fox News late on Friday the accuracy of the messages that were reported earlier this week by the New York Post.

Fox News noted that the emails appeared “to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm.”

“One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Biden as ‘Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co,” Fox News reported. “The email includes a note that ‘Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.’ A proposed equity split references ’20’ for ‘H’ and ’10 held by H for the big guy?’ with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.”

Multiple sources reportedly told Fox News that “the big guy” was a reference to the former vice president.

The New York Post broke the story yesterday, revealing that Hunter Biden had pursued lucrative deals in communist China that he said would be “interesting for me and my family.” Read more…

Savannah Guthrie Blasted For Hostile Behavior Toward Trump During Town Hall

Leftist Savannah Guthrie was slammed online on Thursday night for her hostile and biased behavior toward President Donald Trump during an NBC News town hall event that was held in place of the second presidential debate, which was canceled last week.

Guthrie, whose husband was former Vice President Al Gore’s traveling chief of staff during the 2000 presidential election cycle, was repeatedly combative with the president while Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden fielded mostly softball questions during a competing town hall event on ABC News.

Media reporter Joe Concha highlighted one such instance of Guthrie’s aggressiveness toward the president, writing: “Trump denounces White Supremacy multiple times. Savannah Guthrie follows by accusing Trump of dodging. This is already an absolute joke. And does the audience get to ask questions? Trump pushes back by asking why Lester Holt didn’t ask about Antifa. Trump denounces white supremacy a good four times. Guthrie: ‘It sounds like you’re dodging.’”

Political commentator Lisa Boothe commented: “Why is Savannah Guthrie debating President Trump? I thought this was a town hall. The media is garbage these days.” Read more…

‘This is China, Inc.’: Emails Reveal Hunter Biden’s Associates Helped Communist-Aligned Chinese Elites Secure White House Meetings

Newly obtained emails from a Hunter Biden business partner lay out in detail how the Vice President’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House. These never-before-revealed emails outline how a delegation of Chinese investors and Communist Party officials managed to secure a private, off-the-books meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

In a 2011 email, Hunter Biden’s business associates also discussed developing relations with what one called “China Inc.” as part of a “new push on soft diplomacy for the Chinese.” These emails are completely unconnected to the Hunter Biden emails being released by the New York Post.

These and more explosive never-before-revealed emails were provided to Schweizer by Bevan Cooney, a one-time Hunter Biden and Devon Archer business associate. Cooney is currently in prison serving a sentence for his involvement in a 2016 bond fraud investment scheme.

In 2019, Cooney reached out to Schweizer after becoming familiar with the revelations in his 2018 book Secret Empires. Cooney explained that he believes he was the “fall guy” for the fraud scheme and that Archer and Hunter Biden had avoided responsibility. Read more…

Guiliani: Only 5% of What’s on Hunter Biden’s Hard Drive Has Been Released so Far

Former New York City mayor, Trump campaign advisor and former U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani is warning Americans they haven’t seen anything yet when it comes to the corruption of the Biden family.

“I have the entire hard drive and the New York Post has only published about five percent of it,” Giuliani said. “The New York Post has at least two more situations even more serious than this. The real big time money corruption takes place with the Chinese Communist Party. In essence we have a man trying to be President of the United States whose family has been in business for a number of years with the Chinese communist government and high level Chinese communists.

If we’re stupid enough to do that. China was setting Joe up for years and they have his son by the you know what and they’ve given them plenty of money and coincidentally Joe has caved into China in ever negotiation he’s ever had and he’s the only man in the world who says China is not a threat to us or a competitor. I guess if your family got $30 or $40 million from China, if you were corrupt, I guess you’d say that.”

Earlier this month Guiliani hinted at information he has about Hunter and Joe Biden, some of which has since been published in the New York Post and censored by Twitter and Facebook. Read more…

Senate GOP Targets Facebook and Twitter CEOs for Censoring Hunter Biden Story – Will Vote on Subpoenas Tuesday

The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to vote on subpoenas for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday to testify after the companies suppressed links to articles raising allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

Judiciary Committee leaders plan to hold a vote to issue the subpoena on Tuesday, Fox News reported. If the vote for the subpoena succeeds, Dorsey will be called to testify before the committee on Friday, Oct. 23. Sen. Josh Hawley said he also hopes the committee will subpoena Zuckerberg, as Facebook has also worked to suppress reporting originating from the New York Post.

Hawley also announced on Thursday he had formally requested Dorsey and Zuckerberg testify. Hawley’s press office tweeted, “NEW — U.S. Senator Josh Hawley has formally requested @Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and @Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism in a coming hearing titled “Digital Platforms and Election Interference.”

On Wednesday, Twitter blocked users from sharing links to the Post’s article, preventing users from sharing the story. Facebook also referred the Post’s article for fact-checking, in a move that would limit the article from appearing on users’ newsfeeds. Read more…

Romney Publicly Vows To Confirm Amy Coney Barrett

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has shed all doubt on whether he will confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. In a statement on Thursday, the former presidential candidate once again confirmed that he will vote yes in favor of Barrett’s nomination.

“After meeting with Judge Barrett and carefully reviewing her record and her testimony, I intend to vote in favor of her confirmation to the Supreme Court,” Romney said. “She is impressive, and her distinguished legal and academic credentials make it clear that she is exceptionally well qualified to serve as our next Supreme Court justice.”

“I am confident that she will faithfully apply the law and our Constitution, impartially and regardless of policy preferences,” he added.

Neither Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) nor Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) have confirmed that they will vote no on Barrett’s nomination, s reported by Fox News, For his part, Romney has been consistent on his position since Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died in late September.

“My decision regarding a Supreme Court nomination is not the result of a subjective test of ‘fairness’ which, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder,” Romney said. “It is based on the immutable fairness of following the law, which in this case is the Constitution and precedent. The historical precedent of election year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own.” Read more…

Facebook Suppresses Pro-Life Ad Slamming Biden and Harris Over Abortion Extremism

On Friday, Facebook prevented the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List from running ads in swing states slamming Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, for their extreme pro-abortion stances. Facebook cited a fact-check from The Dispatch, Steve Hayes’ outlet, but The Dispatch later withdrew the fact-check and issued an apology. As of Friday afternoon, Facebook has kept up the “partly false information” flag despite The Dispatch’s apology.

The suppression appears more noteworthy after Facebook and Twitter suppressed the spread of a New York Post story about Hunter Biden, leading the RNC to file an FEC complaint against Twitter, claiming it gave an “in-kind contribution” to the Biden campaign.

“Big Tech and the media are teaming up to run interference for the Biden-Harris campaign on what is a losing issue for Democrats – their shameful support for abortion on demand through birth,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. “This is the latest example of Facebook censoring political speech and is perfectly timed to shut down SBA List’s vital digital communications as we work to reach eight million voters in key battlegrounds in the final days before Election Day.”

Facebook prevented Women Speak Out PAC from using money to boost ads in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Facebook claimed that ads “must not include claims debunked by third-party fact checkers or, in certain circumstances, claims debunked by organizations with particular expertise. Advertisers that repeatedly post misinformation may have permanent restrictions placed on their ability to advertise on Facebook.” Read more…

Video Shows Man Wearing Trump Gear Booted Off Plane For Removing Mask To Eat, Airline Responds

A Southwest Airlines passenger wearing a “Trump 2020” mask and a “Black Voices for Trump” hat was forced off a flight after removing his mask to eat. The airline says he repeatedly refused to wear his mask before what’s shown in a video that went viral earlier this week.

Footage taken by another passenger shows the man holding a bag of mixed nuts with his face mask pulled below his chin, the New York Post reported.

“Tell us the policy that says he cannot eat with his mask off?” a woman filming asks. “It’s the hat and the mask – it’s not the eating.”

“It’s not a publicity stunt,” the woman argues with the flight attendant telling the man to wear a mask.

In a second video shared by SV News, the man is seen leaving the flight.

The video was shared by Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter, who slammed the airline for removing the passenger.

“WTF??? This is disgusting. I’ve been on a thousand flights in the last few months and everyone lowers their masks to eat and drink. I did it on a southwest flight earlier this week,” Trump Jr. wrote.

Southwest Airlines provided a statement to the Washington Examiner claiming the video did not show the whole story. Read more…

Utah: County Mails Over 13,000 Ballots with Missing Signature Line

Over 13,000 mail-in ballots sent to voters in Sanpete County, Utah, are missing the critical area for a signature, election officials confirmed this week.

FOX 13 reports:

Mail-in ballots in Utah are required to be signed by the person who is voting before the ballot can be counted. […] According to Sanpete County Clerk Sandy Neill, the omission was an error that occurred at the printing facility. […] Voters are directed to sign the back of a perforated 2-inch by 4-inch section of their return envelope. […] The printer who made the error will soon be sending a notecard to voters with detailed instructions.

“There was no space for that anywhere,” one Sanpete County voter told FOX 13. “A lot of us are pretty worried about it. It’s nothing we have ever seen before. We have always signed on the exteriors.”

Another voter told the local news outlet: “We had all five phones ringing in the office with questions,” Neill said. “It’s a nightmare to have happen. People are concerned about elections. We’ve assured them that we have this down.” Read more…
