When reality has lapped satire several times over, it’s time to invoke the mercy rule and just stop the race. Now, keep in mind that this would have been exceptionally disgusting stuff even in the immediate aftermath of the election, before every news organization worth its salt essentially admitted that, yes, the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop were the real deal and, no, the Russian government had nothing to do with it. (Instead, it was Hunter Biden himself who dropped the laptop in question off at a Delaware repair shop and then forgot about it for reasons we can probably guess at.) Instead, thanks to an FBI whistleblower, we now know that not only had the bureau reportedly validated the contents of the laptop months beforehand, it had informed Twitter that the contents had been corroborated on the very same day the social media platform censored the New York Post’s reporting of it in October of 2020. And three of the 51 individuals foolhardy and/or partisan enough to sign a letter discounting the laptop as a “Russian information operation” just before the most contentious election in recent U.S. history are being appointed by Biden’s DHS secretary to be part of the Homeland Intelligence Experts Group? Oh, but the media release gets even better: “The homeland threat environment is more diverse, dynamic, and challenging than at any point in our post 9/11 history, with threats tied to an array of different terrorist and violent extremist ideologies and narratives,” said counterterrorism coordinator Nicholas Rasmussen. “The experience, expertise, and perspective offered by Experts Group members will undoubtedly put the Department in a strong position to confront this threat landscape, and we are grateful for the willingness of the Experts Group members to serve in this important capacity.” So, at a time when Russia poses one of the two greatest geopolitical threats we face, we’re relying on “[t]he experience, expertise, and perspective” of three individuals who — and I’m being charitable here — couldn’t suss out that Hunter’s laptop wasn’t a Kremlin creation when even the people running Twitter knew it? Give me a break, says this conservative. Other conservatives concur:

DHS has 260,000 employees and yet, Mayorkas just appointed liars James Clapper and John Brennan to a new “Homeland Security Intelligence Experts Group”Both peddled Russia hoax and said Hunter’s laptop was Russia disinformation.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas has created a “Homeland Intelligence Experts Group.” Included are James Clapper and John Brennan. Among their issues: They lied about Hunter Biden’s laptop. https://t.co/3rSrtaKFlJ— Kelly Jane Torrance (@KJTorrance) September 19, 2023
Brennan, Clapper and Kolbe are naïfs, partisans and/or liars. I’m not going to pretend to know which descriptors apply, if not all of them. They are not, however, intelligence experts. Thus, their appointment to the “Homeland Intelligence Experts Group” should tell you all you need to know about how seriously to take this body — and the administration’s approach to homeland security and intelligence in general. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
