About Joe

Joe Hoft is an author and contributor at one of America’s largest political websites – www.thegatewaypundit.com. The Gateway Pundit (TGP) is run by Joe’s identical twin brother Jim. TGP is one of the largest conservative websites on the Internet with millions of page views daily.

President Trump has retweeted Joe’s online posts at TGP and Joe had discussed many of these stories in interviews on the radio and on the Internet.

In November 2020, Joe was the first to bring light to the massive amount of election fraud uncovered in the 2020 Presidential Campaign. His post at TGP

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Analysis of Election Night Data from All States Shows MILLIONS OF VOTES Either Switched from President Trump to Biden or Were Lost — Using Dominion and Other Systems indicated millions in fraudulent votes in the election. This article was retweeted by President Trump.

In August 2020 Joe reported in an exclusive report at TGP that only 6% of all COVID deaths reported to date were related to COVID only. The remaining 94% on average had 2 to 3 comorbidities associated with these deaths SHOCK REPORT: This Week CDC Quietly Updated COVID-19 Numbers – Only 9,210 Americans Died From COVID-19 Alone – Rest Had Different Other Serious Illnesses. This report was retweeted by the President as well and swept across the country. Americans were shocked to learn this fact about the China coronavirus.

On March 17, 2020, Joe posted an article at TGP arguing the China coronavirus was not as nearly as deadly as was being reported by the WHO. EXCLUSIVE: Evidence Shows Director General of World Health Organization Severely Overstated the Fatality Rate of the Coronavirus Leading to the Greatest Global Panic in History. Joe again was right.

Joe’s posts also made the headlines at the DrudgeReport (before that site changed and went far left).

In October of 2019, Joe wrote a post at TGP entitled, “THE LIST: 8 Ways the Mueller Witchhunt and Lying Schiff’s Sham Impeachment are Identical, Corrupt and Unconstitutional“. Shortly after it was posted, President Trump tweeted out a link to this article (see picture left).

Joe first received attention when he accurately identified and predicted Senator Ted Cruz’s pending collapse at the end of April 2016 in the Presidential campaign. Joe projected on April 4th that Cruz would be mathematically eliminated from the race after the upcoming East Coast primaries on April 26th. The Drudge Report linked to this post and showed it as a top story on the site. Some conservative journalists refuted Joe’s analysis (see here) claiming he was incorrect.

Then on April 25th the day before the East Coast primaries arrived, the Drudge Report headlined Joe’s post at TGP predicting that Cruz would be eliminated the next day. Then as Joe predicted, Cruz was eliminated on the 26th and the Drudge Report posted Joe’s post as its headline EliminaTed which linked to a new post prepared by Joe at TGP sharing the primary results. Joe not only predicted the date of Cruz’s demise, but his projection of the number of delegates was nearly spot on!

As a result of his predictions, Joe’s posts were headlined on one of the largest websites in the world two days in a row – a feat that very few, if any, journalists have ever done! Later in the campaign, another of Joe’s posts was headlined at the Drudge Report noting that Hillary Clinton was taking weekends off rather than participating in campaign rallies. Joe identified this as he was running a tally of participants at the Presidential contender’s rallies.

Eventually, Joe and his twin Jim projected a Trump win and probable landslide in the 2016 election based on rally participation, social media and other indicators. Joe and Jim were two of only a handful who correctly projected Trump’s landslide electoral college win.

Joe has received numerous other links at the Drudge Report on posts he wrote for TGP.

Joe has also been a guest on major US radio programs and podcasts. Because of his financial background and understanding of Asia after having lived in Hong Kong for nearly a decade, Joe was invited to discuss China’s stock market collapse and its economic impact following candidate Donald Trump’s discussion on immigration on the Dana Show in July 2015.
