After stories of Hunter Biden, his laptop from hell, and his massive web of shady dealings were ignored until Old Joe Biden was safely installed as pseudo-president of the United States and long after that as well, suddenly the Hunter Biden stories are everywhere. And so it must be asked: why now? Why has the establishment media, which has long been definitively established as a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, suddenly decided that Hunter Biden actually exists after all, and is a very, very big problem?
From the headlines we’re seeing these days, it’s as if Steve Bannon has taken over all the major media outlets. The New York Times started the ball rolling with a March 16 story in which the Gray Lady actually admitted the existence of Hunter’s laptop. That just opened the floodgates: “Inside Hunter Biden’s multimillion-dollar deals with a Chinese energy company,” was an actual Washington Post headline Wednesday. On the same day, Hunter’s dirty dealings made CBS News and, of all places, MSNBC.
Even CNN, also on Wednesday, dropped its pom-poms and stopped cheerleading for Old Joe long enough to feature a report saying that Hunter faces a “very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes…There is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges.” The Hill thought that CNN’s report was serious enough to warrant a story of its own, which stated that “Hunter Biden’s history of drug use and relationships in the international business world have been the subject of scorn among Republicans and critics of his father for years” and made no attempt to claim that this was just right-wing smear-mongering and that Hunter was as pure as the driven snow.
So why have the Left’s various propaganda arms suddenly decided that Americans need to know all about what Hunter Biden has been up to? When the Washington Post, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN all run with a story on the same day that they’ve been steadfastly stonewalling, it’s not just reasonable, but necessary, to question the timing.
Could the sudden spate of Hunter Biden stories have anything to do with The Big Guy’s disastrous, gaffe-filled trip to Poland, where he almost started World War III several times with his ham-fisted misstatements, forcing the White House Cleanup After Joe Office to go on 24-hour alert? Biden’s handlers had to walk back Joe’s declaration that Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power” and his telling American troops what they would see when they got to Ukraine, and his claim (which he offered to clarify his statement about the troops) that American troops were training Ukrainian troops in Poland.
