President Joe Biden has been in the hot seat of controversy surrounding his wayward son, Hunter’s global exploits. Billing himself as a “consultant,” the First Son has spent years cultivating relationships with contacts both in foreign governments and within powerful multinational corporations.
The question has always been whether Hunter was freelancing or if he was representing larger interests—notably those of his family, specifically, his powerful father, Joe. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has been leading the investigation into these matters and is now demanding that the president retract his “misleading and dishonest denial” that the Biden family received $1 million from a Chinese conglomerate.
Is the Biden Family Actually an International Crime Syndicate?
In fact, the Biden family did receive those funds via one of Hunter Biden’s business partners. The money is believed to have been disbursed not only to Hunter’s account, but to the bank accounts of Hunter’s uncle, James Biden, as well as Hunter’s sister-in-law (and onetime girlfriend), Hallie Biden.
The most important query, of course, is whether President Biden had received the money himself—either directly or indirectly. And for that, further investigation is required (which is ongoing).
The reason that Comer and the House Oversight Committee know about these transfer payments from a Chinese conglomerate to the Biden family’s personal accounts is because the Biden family attorneys confirmed this to the Oversight Committee in a recent round of disclosures. More ominously, according to reports on the matter, “a bank account identified as an unknown ‘Biden’ also received $70,000 from [the business associate of Hunter Biden].”
Who was this “unknown Biden”? Why is their identity masked? Could it be that the entire Biden family are acting as go-betweens shuttling money-for-access from China to Joe Biden?
It is quite possible that Hunter Biden is merely a cutout for a larger operation in which his father, a man who has spent his career at the highest levels of government, is receiving large portions of the proceeds of whatever business that Hunter is ginning up in Joe Biden’s name.
Like most criminal operations, the perpetrators often prefer the business staying “within the family”. Yet, entrusting such sensitive operations to an unstable actor, like Hunter, was probably not the best move.
Remember: the only reason anyone is even looking into these accusations swirling around the Biden family is that Hunter left a personal laptop loaded up with an assortment of inappropriate and illicit materials that prompted the technician working on the computer to call the authorities.
That laptop from Hell has since been subpoenaed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as part of a larger money laundering investigation.
China Thinks Biden is “Easier to Control”
I remind you also that at the start of the Biden Administration, after his controversial victory in the hotly contested 2020 Presidential Election, Di Dongsheng, a professor of international relations at Renmin University (and someone with connections to the highest levels of China’s government) boasted that Joe Biden would be “easier to control” than Donald Trump ever was as president.
This statement was instantly downplayed by Western media and it was outright censored by China’s truth averse media.
Wonder why? Could it be because the Biden family accepted at least $1 million from a Chinese state enterprise over the last decade?
President Biden is in such a legal quandary that not even brer rabbit—who is far less cognitively impaired than the forty-sixth president—could extricate himself from. He probably doesn’t realize it yet.
The Walls Really Are (Slowly) Closing In…
The Republicans have control over the House of Representatives, which means that they will continue to investigate this issue for as long as they hold power there. The Biden family’s various misdeeds will be uncovered one way or another. Maybe it all goes on Hunter. Maybe we get lucky and it clips the president (who is almost certainly involved). This investigation will take time and it will be annoying to those on the outside, but something will pan out about Hunter’s international business ties.
The walls are actually closing in around Joe Biden. How long it takes and how much the walls close in will be up to several factors which may not work on the relatively short (for investigation standards) timeframe that the House GOP is working with as the 2024 Presidential Election rapidly approaches.
Still, Joe Biden should be deeply concerned about what is coming to his family—and likely his presidency. He’d better hope that he wins reelection so that, just as the forty-fifth president plans to do should he win in 2024, Biden can pardon himself and his family for their misdeeds.
