The first week of Hunter Biden’s trial on federal gun charges thrust the women in his life into an uncomfortable spotlight while debunking Democrats’ 2020 election claims that his infamous laptop was a Russian intelligence ruse.

The first son was charged in Delaware by Justice Department Special Counsel David Weiss with three felony crimes alleging he illegally made a 2018 firearm purchase while using drugs.

The accusations include lying to the licensed gun dealer, making a false claim on the application used to screen firearm's buyers by saying he was not a drug user, and illegally possessing the firearm for 11 days.

Here are some of the top moments from the first week of the  trial: 

1. Hunter Biden's laptop was real and not "disinformation."

The infamous laptop was originally described by media outlets and 52 intelligence experts as "Russian disinformation" during the 2020 election. The device  — referred to as "the laptop from hell" — contained videos and photos of drug usage, inappropriate videos and business information.

FBI agent Erika Jensen told jurors last week that the laptop was real.. She said that information on the laptop contained evidence about the gun purchase.

Big Pharma manufacturers of the COVID -19 mRNA "vaccines" have lost their shield from product liability, after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the mRNA shots are NOT VACCINES, but rather "Treatments."

The 9th Circuit said it's not a vaccine if the claim isn't to "PREVENT THE SPREAD" of a disease.

COVID shots were claimed to "reduce symptoms" and prevent hospitalization.  Those claims make it a TREATMENT.

The case involved the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) mandating their people get the "vaccine."

But the 9th circuit, in a very detailed and complex ruling said the US District Court ERRED because this particular "vaccine" did not "prevent the spread of disease."   Here is the pertinent portion of the 9th Circuit ruling:

The race to determine who will be Donald Trump’s running mate this November took a major step forward last week with the acceleration of vetting multiple potential candidates, but political insiders with deep knowledge of presidential campaigns say there is one possible name on the former president’s shortlist Democrats “fear” the most.

Trump’s campaign recently entered the next phase of the running mate search by requesting documents from several prospective contenders, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who has grown to be a staunch ally of the former president since running against him in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.

“Rubio is a familiar face who has become one of the strongest voices in the Senate for the America First agenda, is excellent on TV, and can blast Biden effectively for his failed policies,” one top GOP strategist told Fox News Digital.

A former Atlanta city attorney who was sentenced to seven years in prison over a massive $15 million pandemic loan fraud donated to Trump prosecutor Fani Willis’s campaign after applying for the government handouts, records show.

Shelitha Robertson, 62, used some of her ill-gotten windfall for lavish purchases — including a massive 10-carat diamond ring and a Rolls Royce, according to federal prosecutors.

But, she also donated $1,000 to Willis’s Democratic primary election campaign around the time she got the massive payouts from the Paycheck Protection Program, Georgia campaign filings show.

Turkey to join BRICS! It's official, Turkey is moving away from the EU and will move closer to BRICS, China, and Russia.

What does this mean for the future of Europe and geopolitics around the world? Let's break it down!

Representative Thomas Massie has stepped forward with a proposition that could potentially halt Steve Bannon’s impending imprisonment.

His plan involves urging Speaker Mike Johnson to rescind the congressional subpoena issued against Bannon and to formally disavow what he refers to as the “J6 witch hunt.”

This development follows a recent decision by a Washington, D.C. judge to deny Bannon’s appeal, mandating him to surrender to prison by July 1.

The decision, handed down by United States District Court Judge Carl Nichols, rejected Bannon’s plea to stay his sentence while he prepares to take his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Bannon’s conviction was based on his noncompliance with a subpoena from the sham House committee investigating the events of January 6, an act he defended by citing President Trump’s assertion of executive privilege.

Dave Portnoy: All right. I’m at Saratoga Belmont Day. Looking spectacular, per usual shoes, bang. But this is about Caitlin Clark being left off the Olympic team. How dumb are these women? How dumb? I don’t know who’s making the decision, women’s Olympic Committee, whatever it is. I don’t care if you don’t think Caitlin Clark talent-wise belongs on this team, even though she does put up 37 to 13, like the most points in the history of the league for a rookie.

None of it matters. These women, and I love women, I’m a pro-woman-guy, women-guy. They complain and they cry about equal rights, equal wages, blah, blah, blah, blah. Hey, dummies, for the first time in the history of basketball, you have arguably a player who is the most popular player in the world. You could argue right now, Caitlin Clark is the most talked about, discussed, most popular, most puts asses in the seats, single basketball player in the world. You could argue that. Yeah, you could say maybe LeBron, Luca, whatever you want, but you can argue it. And you leave her off the Olympic team. It’s not only a showcase for her, it’s for the sport and the other WNBA players who are on this team.

How dumb, how brain dead, how idiotic do the people running this thing have to be? It was one thing after another with her. The business part of my brain is like, these people, and maybe it’s guy, whoever it is, I don’t ever want to hear you complain about flying commercial or not getting salaries or this, that. You’re too dumb. You’re too dumb. You have a cash cow. This can bring the Olympic basketball, women’s basketball, be like the number one thing people watch with Caitlin Clark. As it is, I’d rather watch grass grow. I’d rather watch paint dry. I’d rather watch dirt just be moved around because Caitlin Clark is not on the team. If she’s there, it’s appointment TV. You people, whoever did this, honestly, hey, take your brain, put it in a museum, and study it for how dumb you are.
