For the better part of President Trump’s first term the media avoided the Biden family drama.
And when things heated up during the campaign, the silence from the media was telling. So why the new interest in the crooked family enterprise?
Worse, as Zero Hedge reports, the Bidens may be turning on each other:
In November, 2017, Joe Biden’s brother James received a surprise call on his cellphone from Patrick Ho, Ye Jianming’s lieutenant who was arrested by the FBI (and is now serving a 36-month sentence for bribery and money laundering), according to a December, 2018 report by the New York Times. According to James, the call was meant for Hunter.
James Biden, a financier and brother of the former vice president, was in a hotel lobby in November 2017 when he got a surprise call on his cellphone. The call was from Patrick Ho, Mr. Ye’s lieutenant. Mr. Ho, 69, was in trouble.
Federal agents who had monitored CEFC’s rise since at least the summer of 2016 had sprung into action, arresting Mr. Ho in New York on allegations that he had bribed African officials in Chad and Uganda. Days later, federal agents showed up at Mr. Ye’s luxury apartment building across from Central Park with a subpoena to interview Mr. Ye, said people familiar with the matter.
In a brief interview, James Biden said he had been surprised by Mr. Ho’s call. He said he believed it had been meant for Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son. James Biden said he had passed on his nephew’s contact information. -NYT
Anybody surprised at this new development? I doubt it.
So again I ask: why is Hunter Biden front and center in the news now?
Recall, the media and social media giants issued a fatwa against anybody who dared mention Hunter Biden’s obvious criminal activities. Twitter actually banned The New York Post from its site, claiming “misinformation”.
This information was more than corroborated. Even Hunter Biden’s attorney requested the return of HUNTER’S COMPUTER!
None of the facts were in dispute. As Zero Hedge pointed out, Politico reported about the investigation.
With Politico reporting on Wednesday that Hunter Biden’s criminal investigation covers potential money laundering and CNN‘s Simon Prokupecz reporting that the feds are looking into a 2017 gift to Hunter from CEFC China Energy Co. founder Ye Jianming – a 2.8-carat diamond, let’s revisit a prime example of what one Chinese professor described as ‘friends in high places‘ within the Democratic party.
Interestingly, Politico, who now outs Hunter Biden, previously provided cover for him. Below is a screenshot from Politico on the subject back in October of this year:
Politico bolstered their (lie) story with a tweet that Twitter (@Jack) happily distributed.
The idea behind the crafting of the narrative is that 50 “experts” informed Americans that the story is fake.
As we know now and knew at the time, the story isn’t fake. Hunter Biden, Congressman Eric Swalwell, and MANY other high-ranking Democrats are involved with Chinese spies in one form or another. Sexual relationship or simple payola.
Still, why did the media turn?
The media kept a lid on Hunter Biden through the election, but now they attack. I can think of a couple of reasons.
Most people speculate that they are positioning Kamala Harris to take over after Leftists destroy Biden. Possible. However, the timing would be horrible. Because Biden isn’t officially president. In fact, Biden isn’t officially President-elect.
There is a second potential reason, and one I believe to be the real reason.
With new developments regarding Chinese spies, the media simply can’t keep a lid on the story. And remember the Executive Order by President Trump regarding foreign interference in elections? Well, that just might come into play here.
The president’s EO allows him a lot of latitude in prosecuting those who aid and abet the enemy. Is Politico the first to distance itself from the epicenter of a potential nuclear explosion?
One thing is certain. Hunter Biden’s head is on the chopping block. In searching for tax evasion, the Feds have lots of leeway in looking into all aspects of how Biden received funding. And crackheads don’t know how to cover their tracks, as evidenced by Hunter and his computer woes.
I’m anxious to see what happens next, now that the media has been forced to out the Biden crooks.
Anybody think Twitter will apologize for claiming this was misinformation. What about Zuckerberg?
What of the other so-called “fake” stories, like widespread election fraud?
These social media clowns will soon have nightmares about 230, once Trump finishes with them.
