Now that the Biden administration seems to be letting China off the hook for causing and then covering up the Covid-19 pandemic, shouldn’t our illustrious press be at all curious about possible conflicts of interest between the Biden family and China, especially since those conflicts are not conspiracy theories but consist of clearly available public knowledge?
To recap as succinctly as possible, Hunter Biden took six trips to China on Air Force 2 with his father while Joe was VP. Hunter’s company took a financial interest in a Chinese investment company and he personally had dealings with several of China’s most prominent businessmen, all of whom are also leading figures in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
If one wants to follow the money, it is difficult. The details of how much money flowed directly from Chinese sources to Hunter and the Biden family is impossible to track because it is being hidden.
Detailed studies of available records by the Wall Street Journal and the U.S. Senate show that millions of dollars in “fees” made its way to one of Hunter’s companies. It would be the height of intentional naïveté to assume Hunter, his uncle James Biden, and Joe Biden himself did not receive significant sums from the Chinese as a result of Joe Biden’s political office and the machinations of his pathetic son.
It’s a blatant case of corruption that has somehow gone unreported by most of the press and seems not to trouble the same people who spent millions of dollars investigating Trump for his purported ties to Russia.
Speaking of that case, it was based primarily on the Steele Dossier, which was commissioned by the Democratic National Committee and charged that while Trump was in Moscow in December of 2013, he was somehow turned into an agent by KGB spies or hookers or whatever.
Trump was in Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, but arrived shortly before it began and left soon after it ended. The big “smoking gun” was that Trump told James Comey that he didn’t spend the night even though private plane records indicated a possible next-day departure. No passenger names were listed and so there’s no firm proof. But that little one-day or maybe one-night stay prompted the Democrats to accuse Trump of colluding with the Russians to influence the election, among other things.
The evidence was always thin and highly circumstantial, but because the Democrats could not psychologically accept the Trump victory over their gal Hillary, they pursued the investigation nonetheless with breathless assertions of their desire to protect the integrity of the US presidency and the US itself.
Can you imagine if one of Trump’s sons had flown to Russia 6 times and came away with lucrative business deals WHILE TRUMP WAS IN OFFICE what the Dems would have done? Their heads would have exploded in righteous rage.
But that’s pretty much what their guy did and now that he’s playing it very soft with his “old friend” President Xi, no one in the press raises an eyebrow.
Unbelievable. The hypocrisy is so thick it couldn’t be cut by a chainsaw.
If Democrats and liberals wonder why we conservatives don’t trust a single word uttered by the press and their friends in the Democratic party, this is why.
But it’s not just frustrating and incredibly unfair. It’s VERY BAD for our country and for our democracy. When the various institutions designed to ensure accountable governance and root out corruption fail so massively to do their job, then one can only conclude that corruption runs rampant and that the only thing to do when it comes to attempts to rule by the Democrats is to RESIST and DISMISS because they simply have no legitimacy.
Fortunately for them, conservatives tend to support the system even if it fails them time and again and will not carry on like the crybabies on the left did after Trump won. We will go to work, pay our taxes, try to be good people, and pray that our system regains its dignity even as the Democrats and the media try to tear it down.
