Good evening. It's Friday, June 23. Welcome to a new episode of System Update, our live nightly show that airs every Monday through Friday, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern, exclusively here on Rumble, the free speech alternative to YouTube.
Tonight: Two IRS whistleblowers have come forward with some remarkable revelations about the DOJ's investigation into the president's son, Hunter Biden. The New York Times reported this week: "Hunter Biden agreed with the Justice Department on Tuesday to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and accept terms that would allow him to avoid prosecution on a separate gun charge, a big step toward ending a long-running and politically explosive investigation into the finances, drug use and international business dealings of President Biden’s troubled son." That deal would also allow him to have probation and not spend a single day in jail.
Among other things, his whistleblowers allege that the DOJ acted politically and corruptly to rein in the investigation of Hunter Biden. They say that prosecutors overrode the recommendation of senior IRS investigators and others in the Justice Department to charge Biden with multiple felonies rather than just two misdemeanors. Newly revealed evidence shows that Hunter Biden repeatedly invoked his father's name and attempted to pursue lucrative business deals in both China and Ukraine, countries where Biden wielded substantial influence while Obama's former vice president and then again as a presidential frontrunner, including texts, where Hunter threatened Chinese business associates with reprisals at the hands of his father, whom he alleged, was sitting at his side when sending those threatening texts. There is new evidence that the FBI had authenticated the Hunter Biden laptop as early as 2019 and then stood by silently when former intelligence operatives united with the corporate media in the Biden campaign to falsely claim that the materials from the laptop were “Russian disinformation.”
Many of these concerns that relate not only to Hunter Biden's conduct but also his father's, were raised by the New York Post and others before the 2020 election but due to the widespread by the intelligence community and various media outlets led by Politico's Natasha Bertrand, namely, that the laptop was not reliable but instead was “Russian disinformation,” media outlets attacked and demonized rather than report and investigate these allegations and then in the days leading up to the 2020 election, Big Tech platforms, led by Twitter and Facebook, censored the reporting from circulating at all. The bald-faced lie The Hunter Biden's laptop was “Russian disinformation,” which came from countless political media corporate intelligence sectors, is one of the single worst disinformation campaigns ever to emanate from establishment circles. It may very well have altered the 2020 election results. We'll never know that for sure, but that was its intent. And now we have brand new information about the resulting criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, which also sheds all new light on that disinformation campaign. This has all been predictably downplayed or distorted by corporate media. The culprits in the first place that spread the lies and will highlight the key revelations about these IRS whistleblowers and what they mean.
Then: this program has tried for many weeks, more than a month, to pay for an online ad on Google's various platforms, particularly its YouTube platform but Google has repeatedly rejected our ad for ever-shifting and nonsensical reasons, no matter how many times we appeal. We are always told that we are barred forever from advertising on Google's platform.
Rumble is currently involved in an antitrust lawsuit against Google, alleging that the search giant abuses their monopoly power to bury Rumble shows in its search engines – a violation of antitrust law, always a way of protecting YouTube, which Google owns. We waited a long time to talk about this to ensure that we were right, that it wasn't just a bureaucratic snafu, but it now seems undeniably clear and true that Google will bar us from ever advertising this show on its platforms because this program appears exclusively on Rumble – yet more proof that these Big Tech companies are out of control monopolies use the sense of the Internet for their own ideological and financial interests.
