Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday expressed the stunning opinion that perhaps Hunter Biden may deserve “sympathy” and suggested the son of Joe Biden intended for his laptop computer to be seen by authorities.
The sympathy would be over the scandal that has since erupted after he apparently left a laptop computer at a repair shop and didn’t pick it up. The shop owner eventually copied the contents, and then turned the machine over to the FBI, which apparently now is investigating.
The contents suggest that there were multiple international deals going on that would benefit him, and possibly even his father, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. There also were, apparently, some scandalous images of young girls.
Just the News said on Wednesday Joe Biden’s opinion was that the information was all “garbage” from “Trump’s henchman.”
“It’s a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family,” Joe Biden said on WISN.
That’s even as no one from Hunter Biden’s organization, the Biden campaign, or Joe Biden, have claimed the emails are not authentic.
But Limbaugh said there’s much that’s unknown. And even more that’s not understood properly.
“What you have to understand, the Hunter Biden laptop is actually not about Hunter Biden. None of this is about Hunter Biden. This is about Joe Biden. It isn’t about Hunter. Hunter Biden may actually be worthy of our sympathy,” he said.
“Anyway, the FBI now has Hunter Biden’s hard drive, and it says here that it may contain images of underage girls from — dadelut, dadelut, dadelut — China. I still maintain that this is not about Hunter Biden,” he suggested.
“Let me ask you a question. In all seriousness, folks. You’re Hunter Biden. You’re the son of the vice president of the United States and a former United States senator. And your father has put you in these various positions that result in you sending him money. You, the son, Hunter Biden, have to send your dad money. That’s the purpose. That’s what your gig is. And you know that it isn’t right.
“You know that you’re not living your life. You’re not living your life. You’re living your dad’s life. You’re doing what your dad needs you to do except that you’re not 17 or 18 years old, you’re a full-fledged adult. So you got this laptop of yours, and it’s got all this stuff on it. And what do you do? You take it to a repair shop?”
He explained, “The fact is, he did. He took it to a repair shop, a computer repair shop in Delaware and then didn’t pick it up. He left it there for 45-days. Why do that? ‘Cause he wanted it to be seen. He wanted it to be spotted. He wanted what’s happening now to happen. I think he was under a lot of pressure. I think he didn’t want to be doing all of this. There might have been some resentment.”
Limbaugh focused on the issue: “We don’t know the Biden family dynamics. We don’t know if Hunter had begged to get out of these arrangements. He’s got Burisma over in Ukraine. He’s being paid mountains of money for things he’s not qualified to do. He’s got this arrangement in China with the same thing. So he takes his computer with all this data on it, all of this incriminating data, and he leaves it at a computer repair shop and signs off on the fact that if he doesn’t pick it up in 45 days he loses possession of it. So my point is that I think exactly what’s happened is what Hunter wanted to happen.”
He speculated about Hunter Biden and his frame of mind, citing a report that claimed, “Hunter Biden was trying to tell us something. … I think this poor guy is a lost soul, and his leaving that laptop might have been a conscious — could have been an unconscious, deliberate act.”
He pointed out the obvious: that Hunter Biden apparently left an expensive computer at a repair shop and didn’t call for it … for a year.
“Could this have been a way of turning on his father without actually turning on his father? I don’t know. I know that this guy, Joe Biden, has a very volcanic temper,” Limbaugh said.

Over the duration of her Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Judge Amy Coney Barrett earned the support of a majority of American voters, according to a new poll.
The latest Politico/Morning Consult poll shows that a majority of registered voters surveyed, 51%, said the Senate should vote to confirm her as a Supreme Court justice. Only 28% of those surveyed said the Senate should not vote to confirm her. About 1 in 5 voters, 21%, have no opinion on Barrett’s confirmation.
Since Morning Consult began polling voters on Barrett’s nomination in September, support for the judge has steadily grown. In September, only 37% of voters supported her confirmation to the Supreme Court. In early October that number grew to 46% of all voters and by mid-October it was 48%. Now at a 51% majority, support for Barrett has grown 14 points since her nomination was announced.
The biggest increase in support is among independent voters. On Sept. 26, only 28% of self-identified independents supported Barrett, while 31% of independents said they opposed the Senate voting to confirm Barrett. Now, 44% of independent voters support Barrett’s confirmation and 24% oppose it.
Barrett even made strides with Democrats. While most Democrats still oppose her confirmation, in September only 14% said they supported her. Now, 32% of Democrats surveyed say they support a Senate vote to confirm Barrett, despite most voters expecting she will move the court in a more conservative direction.
“A slim majority of voters now back Senate confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court — a level of support that has increased by double digits since President Trump nominated her last month,” said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and president of Morning Consult. “Voters are also aware of the impact her confirmation could have on the court, as 54 percent believe her confirmation will make the Supreme Court at least somewhat more conservative.”
The survey also asked voters if Congress should pass a law increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court. Only 24% of voters support packing the court, while 47% of voters said Congress should only allow nine justices to serve on the court. And 29% of those surveyed did not have an opinion on the size of the court.
Judge Barrett is meeting with senators on Capitol Hill this week as the Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to vote to advance her nomination on Thursday. The full Senate is expected to vote to confirm Barrett on Monday, Oct. 26.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) last week indicated he believes Republicans have enough votes to confirm Barrett to the high court. Only Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) have each said they don’t believe the Senate should vote on a Supreme Court nomination before the Nov. 3 election.]]>

‘The end goal’]]>
(CAMPUS REFORM) — The student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee posted an opinion-editorial containing instructions on how to make and use a Molotov cocktail.
The editor-in-chief of the UWM Post, Adam Kelnhofer, wrote an op-ed on June 14 going over the history of the Molotov cocktail after protests broke out in Milwaukee following the death of George Floyd. The op-ed included instructions on how to “make a Molotov cocktail.”
After going over the history of Molotov cocktails and how they have been used in protests “against tyrannical governments around the world,” Kelnhofer says that while he does not “condone violence,” he supports individuals protecting themselves through “whatever means necessary.”
