“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”Continue reading “Livingstone Knowles on Does Your Faith Outlast November 3?”→
Four days ago, the New York Post published a bombshell report raising serious new questions about presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s relationship with Ukranian energy company Burisma. The story, which made for startling and apparently damning reading was based on a cache of emails and photos allegedly retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop that he had left at a Delaware computer store. I have no idea if the report is entirely true, partly true, or completely untrue. But with my old newspaper editor hat on, I do know that the response from Joe Biden so far has done nothing to make me think it’s false. Joe Biden wants to be President of the United States and the polls suggest he is now in a very commanding position to achieve that ambition. He has positioned himself as the good-guy candidate to repair America from the Trump presidency, a man who will restore trust, truth and transparency to the White House. But his behavior over this Burisma business continues to be anything but transparent. There has been no denial that the emails are genuine, and they raise legitimate questions of probity and honesty that anyone who wants to be President should answer. The longer Biden doesn’t answer them properly, the more people will think there may a fire raging beneath all the smoke. The Republicans will use it as a stick to constantly beat him with just as they used Whitewater against the Clintons, and just as the Democrats themselves used alleged Russian collusion against Trump. Sooner or later, the truth will out. Pictured left, Joe Biden with Hunter’s daughter Finnegan yesterday at church. Right, a picture found on Hunter’s laptop of him in bed with what appears to be a crack pipe. Inset bottom is an email, also found on his laptop, from one of Hunter’s Ukrainian business contacts thanking him for the opportunity to meet Joe.
