What worries me is that Biden is so loved by the media at the moment no one is asking any difficult questions and any discrepancy is ignored. Nobody has really challenged him on Hunters dodgy dealings and it will stay in the shadows until Harris decides she can use it against Joe to oust him and become the first female president - unless Joe croaks it before then.
Also got to be careful saying anything about Joe as Big Tech is watching and we don't want to be cancelled!!
There are political forums where far more than this is discussed with no consequence. I don't think there is any risk of being 'cancelled' for political discussion. I don't think anyone here is going to be making death threats against elected officials, plotting an insurrection, or engaging in gross sexism and racism. Not without censure of course.
There are many claims about Hunter Biden and 'dodgy dealings'. However, these claims do not typically bear scrutiny. E.g. https://www.politifact.com/article/2020 ... oe-biden-/
Note that the claims are often based on details that can be verified but the conclusions (e.g. of illegal behaviour) are not.
As for claims that Harris will replace Biden soon into the presidency... I've seen many of these. We shall see what actually happens. It's impossible to prove that there is no such plot except by waiting for four years (or less) to see if Biden is a voluntary one-term president (as he has suggested) or changes his mind. However, individual claims about Harris are typically based on no evidence. E.g. https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2 ... int-pence/
There are many conspiracy theories about Harris, and I apply Hitchen's razor to them: That which is asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
I've seen an awfully large number of right-wing conspiracy theories proposed. E.g. by 'Q'. Those which have reached their temporal conclusion turn out to be false. Without actual evidence to support any new claims, I feel it's entirely reasonable to assume that the current crop of right-wing conspiracy theories will fare no better.
And please note: for this conspiracy theory to be shown to be true, it requires more than Harris replacing Biden. It would require evidence that this had been pre-planned, from before the election.
