Less than three weeks before the 2020 election, The New York Post, on October 14, 2020, reported it was in possession of emails between a Ukrainian businessman and Joe Biden’s grifter son, Hunter. As ironically reported by The Washington Post, so-called “mainstream” media outlets and social media giants “balked” at (ignored or dismissed outright) the explosive story’s claims, enraging conservatives across America.
Eight days later, the world was introduced to Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter, who released a statement in which he confirmed the authenticity of documents obtained by The Post from a laptop left at a computer repair shop, while Biden and the media continued to claim they were related to a Russian influence operation run through former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and “Ukrainian actors.”
While the legacy media kept the story a secret, finally, on March 17, 2022 — 17 months after the New York Post’s initial reporting on the story — the New York Times finally admitted that the emails found on the grifter son’s notorious laptop were legit, followed on March 30 by a similar “authentication” by The Washington Post. So it started.
But what now? One — an Honesty and objectivity one — can only imagine the myriad of thoughts running through the collective minds of sock-puppet media outlets across the fruited plain.
“What the hell do we do now — after doing our damnedest for a year-and-a-half to discredit, ignore, and outright dismiss the damning Biden story that refused to go away?”
I mean, here’s the thing. While I appreciate the White House’s desperate spin in a frantic effort to protect Apple Sauce Brains from his likely up-to-eyeballs involvement with his grifter son’s nefarious business dealings, this one isn’t complicated. However, it requires the ability to suspend all doubt in order for one to be able buy.
Biden’s simultaneous claims that he and Hunter have never discussed the latter’s business dealings and that Joe himself has “never taken a foreign penny,” AND his insistence that his grifter son has never been involved in “unethical behavior” and “never broke the law” are virtually mutually exclusive claims. Both are complete bullcrap. Of course, they’re both absurd in my humble opinion.
So with evidence already damning and continuing to pile up almost daily, the Democrat State Media had clearly answered the “What the hell do we do now?” question — with a three-pronged strategy:
Hunter Biden is out of the picture.
Race at lightning speed to prop up “The Big Guy” and save him from himself.
It is time to save itself after 18 months spent first ignoring, and later dismissing the scandal.
So as the bombshells continue to drop, as reported by my colleague Nick Arama on Monday, noted Georgetown Law School Professor Jonathan Turley — a Democrat — has now called for a special counsel to investigate the scandal, while also noting how dramatically the media’s narrative has shifted, as transcribed by The Hill.
Hunter Biden’s ongoing U.S. Attorney investigation is available to the media David Weiss in Delaware has presented a growing danger of self-indictment over its prior coverage (or noncoverage). Weiss summoned a number of witnesses to testify before the grand jury. There is a growing likelihood of criminal charges. Hunter Biden.
A looming accusation is the best way to concentrate your mind.
The New York Times (Washington Post), CNN and other media were now facing the humiliating prospect of an indictment on the basis of a story they suggested to be either Russian disinformation or a nonstory. In recent days they were all quick to proclaim the story legit, just 18 months after the New York Post had reported it.
“What quickly emerged, though, was a new narrative,” observed Turley: “None of this implicates President Biden.” On CNN, White House correspondent John Harwood declared:
It is not clear that either Vice President Biden or President Biden have done any wrong with regard to Hunter Biden’s actions.
CNN co-anchor Brianna Keilar added (for emphasis) that Harwood was making “an important distinction.”
Harwood has, God bless his cheerleading left-wing heart! zero evidenceJoe Biden may be exonerated upon this basis. Brianna Keilar, the irreverent? An “important” dishonest distraction.
Examples similar to Harwood’s — and worse — abound throughout the lapdog media. The so-called “mainstream” media are desperate. On multiple levels. They are scared.
They are also hypocritical and worse than all.
However, you knew all that.
