It’s very obvious that Hunter Biden was given a sweetheart plea deal that any other American, charged with the same tax evasion and illegal gun ownership crimes, would not have been given.
This plea deal was hatched at a time when the Biden Family’s finances are under scrutiny by the Republican Party because it is believed that Hunter Biden was the front man for an illicit international influence-peddling scheme.
By cutting a plea deal with the Department of Justice (DOJ), Hunter is helping to mitigate the greater danger that he poses to the Biden Family—specifically to his father, President Joe Biden.
Recently, Hugh Hewitt wrote in the Washington Post that the presiding judge should refuse to accept the sweetheart plea deal that Hunter Biden’s attorneys made with the DOJ. Hewitt is correct.
Alas, this is unlikely to happen.
The Purpose of the Sweetheart Deal
The entire point of the plea deal is to give the Biden Syndicate the cover it needs to evade the dogged House GOP investigation into Hunter Biden long enough for Joe Biden to win reelection.
The entire system is being corralled not to serve as impartial adjudicators of possible criminal activity.
Instead, I would argue, it is being used to protect the Biden Family—in order to better protect President Biden—from the truth of their alleged perfidy getting out to the public. Because if that truth did become public, there is no way that Joe Biden could continue being the president.
Those who purport to rule over us cannot lose Biden as the president because, shockingly, they don’t have a better replacement on hand (Vice-President Kamala Harris has proven she cannot win a national election) and these powerful interests cannot afford to lose access to the government if the Republicans take power again.
This is especially true if former President Donald J. Trump manages to win reelection in 2024 (as unlikely as that presently seems).
To prevent this reality from happening, the Powers That Be are coalescing around Joe Biden to insulate him from his son’s corruption by offering legal avenues of escape for Hunter Biden. Better to keep the drug addled First Son away from the legal limelight by offering him the best possible plea deal.
Expect this to happen as Hunter Biden is made to endure a bevy of other legal woes.
These are not coincidences.
The actions being taken by the legal system are meant to preserve the Bidens’ image in the press so as to negate whatever attacks the Trump Campaign and the GOP are planning to subject Joe Biden to.
Before you start hemming-and-hawing at these claims, just remember that 51 top (mostly retired) leaders of America’s intelligence community (IC) signed a letter in the 2020 Presidential Campaign that they knew had been drafted by the Biden Campaign.
That letter decisively stated that the Hunter Biden Laptop scandal was not a serious issue; that it was, in fact, the result of Russian disinformation. These influential members of the IC put their names to that document knowing full well that the Hunter Biden Laptop scandal was not Russian disinformation.
Why Protect Hunter Biden?
The great question is: why would members of America’s IC risk their reputations and retirement benefits by making such categorically false claims?
Well, it wasn’t because they loved Hunter Biden so much.
It’s because these individuals all a had vested interest in preserving Joe Biden’s chances to win the 2020 Presidential Election. These elements all wanted Joe Biden to win not just because of ideological solidarity (though I am sure that was at play, too).
Or because they believed Donald Trump was such a terrible person (they did think that).
These elements put their name to an inherently false document that became the basis of mass censorship in the press and on various social media apps with the expressed intention of protecting Joe Biden and ensuring that he could defeat Donald Trump in that election.
These elements wanted Biden in the White House because they and their agencies all stood to benefit from a Biden Administration in ways that they could never prosper under the Trump Administration.
What’s more, Trump was starting to wise up to the shenanigans the Administrative State had been up to since he was first elected.
A second Trump term would have seen the forty-fifth president likely go full bore against the so-called “Deep State”.
If Trump is elected in 2024, it’s likely that he will wage unremitting warfare upon the bureaucracy.
The Republicans Threaten the Established Order in Washington, D.C.
This is why not only vast elements of the Administrative State are weaponized against Trump and supporting Biden, but why the DOJ is crafting sweetheart deals with Hunter Biden. The GOP is a threat to the established power structures in Washington, D.C.
Neither Trump nor any other possible GOP candidate can be allowed to take power.
So, our supposed unbiased justice system is tailoring its rulings to better protect Hunter Biden to preserve the wildly unpopular Joe Biden’s ability to win reelection in 2024.
Just as in 2020, when these same elements manipulated the media and social media firms to censor news about the Hunter Biden Laptop scandal, the country is again being manipulated into ignoring the ongoing investigations into Hunter Biden and his family.
After it was revealed that the Hunter Biden Laptop scandal was true and the details were leaked to the press, many of those Americans who voted for Joe Biden over Donald Trump in 2020 admitted that, if they’d known the details about the Hunter Biden Laptop scandal, they’d have likely voted for Trump.
The Elite Protect Hunter and Joe Biden to Protect Their Own Power
The Administrative State understands that many independent voters, while they dislike Biden and Trump equally, might be swayed to elect Trump over Biden (if Trump is, in fact, the GOP nominee in 2024) simply out of disgust for the severity and extent of Hunter Biden’s corruption.
By giving the First Son sweetheart plea deals and muddying the GOP investigation into Hunter Biden’s possible financial ties to Joe Biden, the Administrative State is ensuring that many voters will be unaware of the corruption that the Biden Family is engaged in—and those who do become aware of the claims against the Bidens will figure it is little more than a conspiracy theory.
The presiding judge should deny the Hunter Biden plea deal and force the issue out into the public. It’s unlikely this will happen, because so much of our government is pro-Biden.
