A witch hunt: The mainstream media’s modern approach to discourse.
Persecution is now cool! The computer repair shop owner who found and made public Hunter Biden’s laptop prior to the election has found himself harassed, threatened, and even driven to bankruptcy because of that entirely legal act.
The Delaware computer repair shop owner who alerted the FBI to Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop before ultimately taking it to Rudy Giuliani says he’s faced harassment from Big Tech, the IRS and other government agencies ever since, and now faces bankruptcy.
“I was getting a lot of death threats,” John Paul Mac Isaac said. “I had to have a Wilmington trooper parked in front of my shop all the time.
“There were multiple situations where people came in and you could tell they were not there to have a computer fixed. And if there were not other people in the shop, I don’t know what would have happened,” he told The Post. “I was having vegetables, eggs, dog s–t thrown at the shop every morning.”
The threats and violence got so severe in November 2020 that Isaac had to shutter his shop and flee Delaware and live in hiding for more than a year. When he later tried to file for unemployment Delaware bureaucrats kept closing his case without resolution so that he received no checks and had use some of the money in his 401K to pay his bills. The Delaware unemployment department only finally acted after he sent a letter to the state’s governor.
In December 2021, the computer man sent a pointed letter to Delaware Sen. Chris Coons. “I would hate to think that I was singled out in a politically motivated attack. If a state agency was weaponized to punish a perceived political enemy, the country has a right to know,” he warned the Democratic colleague of Joe Biden.
The unemployment cash came swiftly after that, though Mac Isaac insists he still ended up getting short-changed by several thousand dollars.
This ugly story, published on March 12, 2022, takes on even more significance with the admission by the New York Times only four days later that this laptop was real, belonged to Hunter Biden, and contained significant evidence of corruption by Hunter in league with his father, Joe Biden, now the President of the United States.
The leftist Times of course is very late to the game. That laptop’s existence, and the evidence it contained, was made public in October 2020 — weeks before the election — with the New York Post publishing the scoop. The conservative press then immediately documented it quite widely, while the leftist press censored that information instead. Twitter shut down the New York Post’s feed. The Times and the major media outlets refused to publish anything about it, other than to smear it as “Russian disinformation,” without any evidence.
That slander campaign helped Joe Biden get elected. It also directly contributed to Isaac’s own problems, as the dishonest reporting by these corrupt media outlets encouraged the hate and blacklisting that Isaac then experienced.
I doubt most of my readers depend on the New York Times or the mainstream press for much of their political news. If you do, however, this story should finally make you question these sources. Nor are is this story the first example of their dishonesty and incompetence. The mainstream press has for now more than decade clearly revealed itself to be corrupt, blatantly biased in favor of the Democratic Party, and wholly unreliable in its reporting. Anyone who still believes anything they publish in connection with that party, especially prior to any election, should have their own head examined for being too innocent, naive, or willfully ignorant.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
