Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani realized he was sitting on a powder keg of information allegedly exposing possible questionable business dealings former Vice President Joe Biden, along with his family, last December. He had been given the alleged contents of Hunter Biden’s private laptop. He wasn’t the only one with the laptop because the FBI had received the hard drive that same month.
The contents, said Giuliani who has reviewed the thousands of pictures and documents, were enough to warrant a criminal investigation by the FBI.
Nearly a year has gone by and the FBI has failed to do its job, said the close confidant and personal lawyer of President Donald Trump to me on Monday’s The Sara Carter Show. It is the reason the tough New York lawyer turned over Hunter Biden’s private emails, texts and pictures to The New York Post but what came next was even more daunting than the FBI’s alleged failure to investigate – it was the “big tech” giants open censorship of any story revealing the possible questionable and criminal concerns surrounding the Democratic nominee for the president of the United States.
Twitter, Facebook and Google appeared to be protecting the Vice President and they are still battling it out with Congress at a Senate hearing Wednesday investigating the matter.
The tough New York lawyer warned that companies, like Google, Twitter and Facebook want Trump out. They realize he is a tour de force against their censorship and anti-American behavior. Giuliani pointed out that the tech giants know that the Trump administration will hold their feet to the fire and possibly remove Section 230 from their protection if he’s re-elected. Vice President Joe Biden, he said, would only empower the tech giants of Silicon Valley.
“I only only can conclude that these people who are doing it, have decided that there are other things that are more important, like they’re making money in China, or they’re having a President who will be compliant with their ability to do anything that they want, ” said Giuliani. “Because up until now, big tech has been able to do anything they want. And we let it grow… Now, it’s it’s really completely trashing our right to free speech that has to be stopped.”
He said only a Trump administration will take the ‘big tech giants on’ and certainly a Biden administration would ‘fundamentally’ change our nation forever.
“Every American Democrat, Republican, liberal conservatives should sit back and answer that question for themselves?” Giuliani responded to whether or not a Biden administration would take on Big tech or allow to grow and be used as a tool to control the populace by the government.
He said people need to be “paying attention.” He said we need to pay attention because we have a choice to continue to “exist as a democracy.”
Giuliani made it clear that the FBI also received the contents in December, 2019 that were contained in Hunter Biden’s laptop. The contents were and are explosive, he said.
There were personal damaging pictures of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son smoking crack, his naked body, along with sexually explicit videos. Some of these photos and videos have already been made public.
Further, there was a litany of documents, from text messages, emails, contracts and other forms of business documents that raised significant questions – some allegedly criminal – about the Biden families business dealings with foreign and sometimes hostile connections to the United States.
It was a huge find and particularly for someone who has watched his friend, President Trump, get hammered by main stream media outlets and a corrupt Obama FBI throughout the past four years for alleged crimes that have now been proven completely false.
But the FBI appeared to be doing northing. Months went by and he decided to give the story to the The New York Post. The Post vetted the information, Giuliani also did the same, and then the paper ran numerous exclusive exposes on Hunter Biden’s business dealings, drug use, sex life and other alleged criminal activity that Giuliani said must be investigated.
However, The Post didn’t get the same treatment as the New York Times or the Washington Post by the big tech giants when they ran their story on Biden. In fact, the big tech giants immediately began censoring the New York Post. They now claim that they were using a rule implemented in 2018 regarding the sharing of hacked information. But that isn’t the case at all.
As Senators began questioning some of the most powerful men on the planet Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Google’s Sundar Pichai, it became painfully obvious that their intention was to stop the flow of negative information regarding Biden to the public.
The virtual hearing began at 10 a.m. ET in front of the Republican-controlled Senate Commerce Committee. The relatively three young CEO’s appeared a bit out of sync and very careful in how they answered their questions.
Twitter, Google and Facebook have appeared to be targeting conservatives with a vigor. Moreover, the censorship actions – as well as disclaimers alleging the many conservative stories are not properly vetted or false – have led to these Senate hearings and questions about American’s Constitutional right to free speech.
After all, these platforms are publicly traded companies and at their inception they promised their users that they would be free of censorship, right?
Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Twitter’s Dorsey on these very concepts and pointed to numerous Tweets that were not censored for the similar reasons given to the committee about the New York Post’s stories on Biden.
His opening statement was powerful.
“The three witnesses we have here today, I believe pose the single greatest threat to free speech in America and the greatest threat we have to free and fair elections, ” said Sen. Cruz, who stated he spoke with Google’s Pichai and Facebook’s Zuckerberg the day prior.
“I have concerns about the behavior of both of their companies,” stressed the Senator in his statement. “I would note that Facebook at the minimum is trying to make some efforts in the direction of defending free speech. I appreciate their doing so.”
As for Google, Cruz noted that he agreed with concerns raised by his Democratic Senate colleague Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
“Google has more power than any company on the face of the planet,” Cruz said. “And the anti-Trust concerns are real, the impact of Google is profound and I expect we will have continued and ongoing discussions of Googles abuse of that power and it’s willingness to manipulate search outcomes to influence and change election results.”
During a contentious back and forth with Dorsey Cruz said “Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear, and why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC, silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?”
In response Dorsey tried to say that The Post‘s story violated Twitter’s “hacked materials policy.” He tried to squirm his way out by saying the policy had to be updated..
“We recognized errors in that policy. We changed it within twenty-four hours,” he said.

The Looming National Debt Crisis: The Uncomfortable Truth No One Wants to Discuss
As Republican candidates gather for a debate, the skeleton in the closet remains the ballooning national debt, a subject that’s largely been relegated to the shadows of political discourse.
While the candidates may briefly touch upon the issue and offer surface-level solutions, the uncomfortable truth is that addressing the national debt’s growing burden would require difficult, unpopular choices. Candidates find themselves in a precarious position, tasked with both solving the problem and securing votes, all within the constraints of a 90-second debate response.
Since surpassing the $33 trillion debt threshold, the United States has been accruing over $800 million in new debt every hour, adding more than $2 billion daily in interest payments. The most recent debt ceiling bill has suspended any cap on this debt until January 2025, casting a long shadow over the nation’s future freedom and prosperity.
Democrats have occasionally pointed to the “Trump Tax Cuts” as a driver of the deficit. However, the tax cuts did stimulate economic growth and resulted in record-high Treasury revenues, albeit without corresponding spending cuts.
One feasible solution begins with fixing the federal budget process, though it is by no means an easy task. Nonetheless, it would substantially rein in Congress’s control over the spending pie chart. A recent Heritage study revealed that only 10 percent of the $7.5 trillion in COVID-related spending actually went to healthcare. The remaining 90 percent, charged as overhead and other expenses, underscores the need for significant reform.
According to reports from Fox News, while the discretionary budget, including debt interest payments and defense spending, constitutes less than 25 percent of overall expenditures and continues to shrink, the true driver of federal deficits lies in mandatory, programmatic spending. These are expenditures Congress does not address annually but continues unabated.
Furthermore, they encompass popular transfer programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, student loans, and healthcare initiatives like Obamacare, among countless others. Altering these programs involves a political third rail, a risk few presidential candidates are willing to take.
Mandatory, programmatic expenditures are perpetual and don’t undergo annual scrutiny or adjustment. There is virtually no constituency for tackling these fundamental issues, despite their role as the primary drivers of the nation’s fiscal challenges.
Many citizens believe that trimming discretionary spending, such as congressional salaries or foreign aid, or rooting out “waste, fraud, and abuse,” can resolve the debt problem. While these are valid concerns, the real target for reform should be mandatory, programmatic spending to ensure the sustainability of essential programs.
The Republican candidates vying for the nomination face a daunting question: Who among them possesses the courage and leadership to make the unpopular decisions necessary to restore fiscal responsibility to the nation’s future?
On the other side of the aisle, Democrats seem unlikely to embrace responsible spending as part of their agenda, leaving the issue largely unaddressed in their political DNA.
In a political landscape dominated by divisive issues and partisan debates, the national debt looms as the silent crisis that few are willing to confront.
The path to fiscal responsibility requires acknowledging the harsh reality that popular programs must also be on the table for reform. Only then can America hope to secure a stable financial future for its citizens.
