A video montage produced by the conservative Media Research Center (MRC) shows just how desperate the mainstream media was in trying to cover up the Hunter Biden scandal.
MRC put the video supercut together one week before the election as a means to highlight how the media was lying about there being “no evidence” that the former Vice President and his son “had done anything wrong.”
Over a month later, it has been revealed that Hunter is the subject of a federal investigation into his “tax affairs” that began in 2018, a year before Biden announced his campaign for the presidency.
The investigation includes scrutinizing some of Hunter’s Chinese business dealings and other transactions, some of which were flagged for “potential financial criminal activity.”
Play the video with this new information as a backdrop, and you see in even more stark terms just how corrupt the American media are.
Did you take a drink every time you heard the media suggest there is “no evidence” in the Hunter Biden scandal? If so, have somebody drive you to the hospital immediately to get your blood alcohol level down.
If you’re still here, watch how the second half of that video morphs into the media realizing there is actually something to the story only to suggest it’s part of a “Russian disinformation campaign.”
So much stupid, it hurts.
John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, squashed that notion rather easily.
“Let me be clear,” he said. “The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that.”
The media made that angle up. They completely concocted it out of thin air using Russia as their favorite boogeyman once again.
Moving on …
Does anybody remember the exchange between President Trump and Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes? You know, the interview where Trump walked out over what he perceived to be unfair questions?
The President began that interview by asking Stahl, “You’re gonna be fair? … Just be fair.”
Then this happened:
President Donald Trump: I wish you would interview Joe Biden like you interview me. It would be so good. You know what?
Lesley Stahl: You like this, I thought-
President Donald Trump: I don’t mind it. I don’t mind it. But when I watch him walk out of a store, and he’s walking with an ice cream. And the question the media asks him, “What kind of ice cream? What flavor ice cream do you have?” And he’s in the midst of a scandal.
Lesley Stahl: He’s not.
President Donald Trump: And he’s taking
Lesley Stahl: He’s not, no–
President Donald Trump: Of course he is, Lesley.
Lesley Stahl: Come on.
President Donald Trump: Of course he is.
How much more proof is necessary for the American people to see that today’s media is the most corrupt entity in the nation and has been for many, many years?
There was an active investigation that began two years ago and we’re to believe nobody in the media picked up on the story?
Would that have happened if the “tax affairs” investigation involved somebody by the name of Donald Trump Jr., or Eric Trump, or even Ivanka?
And we’re to believe that the Department of Justice didn’t let any of this leak out into the public square? If so, it’d be the first hint of impropriety that hadn’t leaked to the press in four years.
Even if you bought into that, there were Senate committees and subsequent reports that indicated inquiries into Hunter Biden.
The Political Insider wrote of a Senate Committee on Homeland Security report back in September that covered the younger Biden’s questionable financial transactions, including a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
From the report:
The Senate and Finance committees claim that they have obtained records from the US Treasury Department.
Those records reportedly “show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals.”
But, ‘no evidence’ apparently.
There was a documentary earlier that month narrated by Peter Schweizer, which claimed Hunter Biden’s numerous business deals in China “served” the communist country and their military.
“This isn’t just another story about a politician’s kid getting rich,” Schweizer said.
“Hunter’s new firm started making investment deals that would serve the strategic interests of the Chinese military.”
One of the companies involved in the transaction was a private investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), where the son of the Democrat nominee for President was a board member.
Schweizer claimed that he had information suggesting the Bidens cooperated with Chinese partners to bypass certain laws.
By extension, this allowed them to acquire companies that helped the Chinese military excel in technology.
But, ‘no evidence.’
Let’s face facts here. The media were covering for Biden and his father. They were covering to meddle in an election.
And they were meddling in a way that they had accused President Trump and the Russians of doing for four damn years.
Doesn’t this make them truly the enemy of the people?
