I would argue that Democrats and their media allies have worked overtime to suppress Joe Biden’s alleged corruption even as they play up former President Donald Trump’s legal woes and failings of personal character.
They voted along party lines to block the House Ways and Means Committee from releasing embarrassing testimony from IRS whistleblowers claiming that the Biden Justice Department interfered with U.S. Attorney David Weiss’ ability to properly investigate Hunter Biden.
Not a single Democrat broke ranks from their caucus in contrast with Trump’s first impeachment. At that time, Democratic Reps. Tulsi Gabbard and Jeff Van Drew broke ranks with the Democrats. Gabbard voted present and Van Drew voted against the impeachment. Neither member remained a Democrat. Gabbard bolted last Fall and declared herself an Independent and Van Drew switched to the Republican Party.
The allegations, made public following the 25-18 party-line vote, suggest that Hunter Biden shook down a Chinese Communist Party official who had ties with China’s intelligence apparatus and that Joe Biden was complicit.
Democrats Unfazed By Biden’s Chinese Intel Ties
Democrats who spent the Trump years whining and making allegations that Trump had ties to a foreign intelligence agency seem suddenly uninterested in the possibility that the head of their party has potentially been in bed with a foreign intelligence agency.
Not a day went by during which Democrats avoided calling Trump a “traitor” because of fabricated evidence such as the Steele Dossier that claimed that Trump colluded with Russian intelligence.
Evidence allegedly shows the Bidens received millions from companies linked with China’s Communist Party and its intelligence apparatus.
IRS Supervisory Agent Gary Shapely alleged that IRS investigators obtained a WhatsApp text message allegedly sent by Hunter Biden to Chinese Communist Party official Henry Zhao. He reportedly partnered with Hunter Biden to form a company called Bohai Harvest LLC. Zhao partnered with Jia Liqing, the daughter of the former head of China’s spy agency the Ministry of State Security, and its internal security agency the Ministry of Public Security, Jia Chunwang.
Shapely said: “[W]e obtained a July 30th, 2017, WhatsApp message from Hunter Biden to Henry Zhao, where Hunter Biden wrote: ‘I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight. And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.’”
Hunter Biden alledegly worked closely with CEFC China Energy, an organization headed by Ye Jianming. Ye previously served as deputy secretary general of the China Association for Friendly Contacts (CAIFC).
“The CAIFC is really an intelligence agency affiliated with the General Political Department to study foreign military strategies. Its goal is to come up with measures to destroy the PLA’s enemies,” Arthur Ding Shu-fan, from the Taipei-based Chinese Council of Advanced Policy Studies, told the South China Morning Post.
Other reports suggest that CAIFC’s other primary role was dispatching spies.
According to Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, Joe Biden might have taken 10 percent from a CEFC deal in Louisiana in which he was referred to as “The Big Guy.”
Mainstream Press Censors Biden Bad News
According to the conservative Media Research Center, which monitors major media for political bias, mainstream media networks including ABC, NBC, and CBS omitted all coverage of the Biden’s alleged corrupt deals. At the same time, they devoted 491 minutes to Trump and his legal issues.
“The prediction here is — if they follow their familiar and recent patterns — the networks will continue to aggressively track the Trump case, drop the Hunter charges like a hot potato, and resume their censorship of the Biden family scandals,” MRC said.
