PostHunter Biden and the Laptop Scandal (Brian Blodgett, USA, 10/16/20 3:29 am)
John, you must have a different ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC than I do! The NY Post Twitter/Facebook issue is not showing on any of their splash pages down here in Maryland.
Oh, as to why Hunter Biden may have left his computer at the repair shop, the most obvious answer is he forgot about it.
Regarding the computer-repair guy, according to the Delaware Visually Impaired site (https://dhss.delaware.gov/dhss/dvi/eligcriteria.html ), legally blind is 20/200 in the better eye with correction, or a field restriction of 20 degrees or less. This means that the smallest letters that you can identify from the eye chart at 20 feet away is equal the the size of the smallest letters of a person with "normal" vision, but it does not mean that you cannot see up close; which ties in with the gentleman's job and his inability to recognize a person at 100% from even a small distance--heck, could most even identify a person who comes into your store once with 100% certainty?
As far as the Washington Post story, I am glad they are at least mentioning it and, anyone who would be doing what some believe Hunter and Joe Biden might have done did, they would not easily admit it either and hide the facts. It would not be on an official calendar or would people readily admit to it. After all, everyone believes that those who support President Trump are also hiding dirt.
JE comments: The Mac technician in question is named John Paul Mac Isaac. I wonder which came first--the nickname "Mac" or his career choice.
In trying to disentangle this story, I'm left with more questions than answers. Why, if Isaac turned the hard drive over to the FBI in 2019, have we heard nothing until October Surprise time? And why would he (Mac) also deliver a copy to Rudy Giuliani? Is it legal to make and distribute someone's hard drive without the owner's permission? Whenever I need to get a computer fixed, I have to give my full name and information. Didn't Isaac ask the customer to identify himself? (Granted, you can lie.) Finally, what about the supposed sex video on the machine featuring Hunter B? Can anyone be that foolish, especially if you're famous? Possibly, but...
At the same time, those who try to debunk the incident as a fabrication (Daily Beast and others) are not producing enough concrete proof to put the matter to rest. So we're left with the following: those inclined to believe such a story will find it to be the kind of story they believe. And those who don't believe it, don't. Brian, yesterday you wrote that Facebook has suspended the reposting of the story while its fact-checkers conducted an investigation. Have you heard anything about their findings?
