    New emails obtained by a law group allege the top cybersecurity defense agency in the U.S. immediately worked to discredit the infamous Hunter Biden laptop story on the same day the New York Post published the article.

    America First Legal, a non-profit law group led by former senior members of the Trump administration, said on social media Wednesday that two weeks before the 2020 presidential election, the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) linked Biden's laptop story to the likes of "QAnon" and the 2016 "Pizzagate" child-sex trafficking theory.

    In the heavily redacted documents, a CISA analyst on the Countering Foreign Influence Task Force flagged "colleagues" in an email with an Axios report titled "QAnon Conspiracy Theory Explodes Ahead of the Election."

    The report ties the conspiracy theories to "[r]ecent reports about what was purported to be Hunter Biden's computer hard drive," sparking "renewed activity from Q" with a least 16 new "Q drops" the same day of the Post article, according to the unearthed emails.

    The legal group said, at best, the DHS sub-agency may have been "in the dark" about Biden's laptop despite the FBI confirming its authenticity in November 2019.

    "CISA still reported the story as a QAnon and Pizzagate child-sex trafficking conspiracy theory on Oct 22, 2020," the legal group said on X.

    CISA Executive Director Brandon Wales told The Daily Wire in a statement the cybersecurity defense agency "does not and has never censored speech or facilitated censorship."

    "Every day, the men and women of CISA execute the agency's mission of reducing risk to U.S. critical infrastructure in a way that protects Americans' freedom of speech, civil rights, civil liberties, and privacy," Wales said. "In response to concerns from election officials of all parties regarding foreign influence operations and disinformation that may impact the security of election infrastructure, CISA mitigates the risk of disinformation by sharing information on election literacy and election security with the public and by amplifying the trusted voices of election officials across the nation."

    Earlier this month, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals expanded a previous injunction to include CISA, which ruled that the agency "likely violated the First Amendment" for allegedly lobbying Silicon Valley companies to censor online content involving elections.

    "CISA was the 'primary facilitator' of the FBI's interactions with the social-media platforms and worked in close coordination with the FBI to push the platforms to change their moderation policies to cover 'hack-and-leak' content," the court ruled, according to the legal group.

    Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey, one of the Republican attorneys general who brought the case, called CISA the "nerve center" in censoring speech online.

    "CISA is the 'nerve center' of the vast censorship enterprise, the very entity that worked with the FBI to silence the Hunter Biden laptop story," Bailey said on social media on October 3.

    But the conservative legal group said the latest documents on Wednesday alleging CISA participated in downplaying the Biden laptop story come as part of a broader effort from various alphabet agencies' Orwellian attempt to stop disfavored ideas before they spread.

    The group filed a complaint at the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday, seeking an immediate investigation into the Democratic National Committee and President Joe Biden's campaigns, including Biden For President, the Biden Victory Fund, and the Biden Action Fund over alleged attempts to whitewash the Hunter Biden laptop story.

    The legal group alleged that the Biden committees failed to disclose the campaign's role in coordinating a letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials that suggested the Biden laptop story could be part of a Russian disinformation operation just weeks before the 2020 election. The letter also came days before CISA allegedly became involved in the censorship.

    "In 2016, high ranking federal intelligence officials interfered in a Presidential election, lying about Russia collusion in a failed effort to elect Hilary Clinton," Reed D. Rubinstein, senior counselor and director of oversight and investigations for the legal group, said in a news release. "In 2020, many of these same officials again interfered in a Presidential election, lying about Hunter Biden."

    "The Federal Election Commission's charge includes election integrity - Americans have the right to know who is coordinating with federal candidates," Rubenstein added. "But this right is only as effective as the agency that enforces it. The FEC must act here."

    Representatives for the DNC and Biden's campaign have not yet issued a response.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering that the 2024 Presidential Election has fully begun, and the Biden Administration has consequently fully weaponized the Biden DOJ /FBI to attack all political opponents under the penalty of felonious judgement for many of the same alleged crimes, or worse, committed by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden himself: Are you comfortable with this level of overt corruption within the Executive Branch?
  Yes; if Democratic Socialists are to complete the remaking of this "Democracy," the End will Always Justify the Means.
  No; in a Constitutional Republic, the Rule of Law is paramount, which means the law MUST be administered evenly
  Who cares; I am just so ambivalent to all this grown-up stuff.

Now that the public is allowed to know the truth regarding the Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal, after more that 2 1/2 years of deception by the corrupt Corporate Media Kabal, propropagandidats all, and the discredited Deep State, we have NOW learned that the infamous laptop is far less about the Biden Boy's fetish for pornography, narcotics and Russian whores, and far more about Hunter's pivotal role in the Biden Crime Syndicate's selling of deep access to our foreign adversaries, and to what extent it has compromised our national security: What is your opinion about this possible coordinated Treason?
  It is imperative that we know the truth of what may be the greatest scandal in our Republic's history, and all aforementioned parties prosecuted for their crimes against the People.
  Currently, our Two Tiered Justice System is constructed to protect all Democratic Socialists, their corrupt "Journalist" spokes-sheople, and their Deep State enablers ... so why bother.
  It is Donald Trump's fault.
  How can we be assured that the "Laptop" is real? Would NOT our standard journalists have investigated this issue thoroughly nearly 3 years ago if it was real?

Among the many other lackluster performance standards by the Biden Administration - the most recent, allowing the Chinese Spy Balloon unfettered access to the skies above this Sovereign Republic - Joe Biden's foreign policy is considered by most true experts to be mediocre to abysmal at best. If one were to give a fair assessment of the quality of this apex duty of this Executive Branch: What would be your opinion of the Biden Administration's Foreign Policy initiatives and, or obvious faux pas?
  President Biden is a Foreign Policy expert of consummate skill just like his brother, Jim, and his son, Hunter.
  America's First Idiot President is corruptly committed to making the World far less safe, while surrendering OUR United States of America's sovereignty whenever, wherever possible.
  Mr. Biden is MY President because I pay close attention to only what rewards me, thus demanding as little sacrifice as is my nature to offer, or shrug.
