The Joe Biden’s Carefully Crafted Image Goes Bust – The thing about lies is that it requires a great deal of energy on the part of the deceiver to maintain the illusion. The more complex the lie and the louder that lie is told, the harder it is to contain.
Take the case of President Joe Biden and his carefully crafted image.
And if your lie, such as the one that the Biden’s have crafted about themselves, is that you’re more wholesome than your opponents, then you’d better be able to at least keep up appearances.
Yet, President Biden and his team are enduring the painful release of multiple truths that undercut their carefully crafted image.
Matching Overhyped Myth to Painful Reality
It’s so bad that his staff has the equivalent of battered wife syndrome, where they soothe their wounded egos and damaged emotions by the president’s bullying by saying that it’s an honor to be verbally castigated by the boss.
Now do Trump, media.
Biden portrays himself (and allows himself to be portrayed) as a genial old, loving grandfather to his grandchildren. Yet, Biden only acknowledges six out of his seven grandchildren—despite a paternity test proving that Biden’s wayward, son, Hunter, is the father of Navy Joan Roberts.
Hunter Biden, while in a coke-infused daze, had an affair with a stripper who worked at the high-end Washington, D.C., gentleman’s club.
That conjugation resulted in a sweet, four-year-old girl who is apparently aware that Joe Biden is her grandfather and that he is refusing to acknowledge her existence as a member of the Biden Family.
The Democrats are trying desperately to deflect away from this story by accusing the Republicans who bring up this sad affair in public as being the villains.
Yet, this is total fair game. After all, the Biden Family has insisted that they are purer than their chief political rival, Donald J. Trump, and his family.
Thus far, there are no provable claims that Donald Trump has any out-of-wedlock children—or that his own children have sired any illegitimate children.
Besides, Donald Trump never ran as a pure-as-the-wind-driven-snow kind of a candidate.
In fact, he ran as just the opposite. Trump has a long public history of bragging about his sexual conquests—real and imagined—to generate media buzz. And the media, of course, laps up those stories in ways that they wouldn’t dare do with the Biden Family.
Was Hunter Working for Joe?
There is simply no way that either Biden or the Democratic Party—even with a compliant press—can maintain the façade they’ve created about the purported decency of Joe Biden. Not when he’s surrounded by so much scandal.
I mean, there’s enough circumstantial evidence on Hunter Biden’s allegedly illicit international dealings to not only conduct a deep investigation into him, but to seek wider information pertaining to the rest of the dubious finances of the Biden Family—including the president.
Hunter Biden himself admitted to his oldest daughter in 2019 over a WhatsApp text message exchange that he was working for his father. That, just as the whistleblower, Tony Bobulinski had told Tucker Carlson in 2020, Hunter seemed to be leveraging his father’s government job to get barrels of cash from foreign governments and corporate leaders in exchange for those special interests getting special access to Joe Biden.
In the course of those deals, Hunter was likely giving his father a cut of the profits.
We all know that Jared Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, were accused of engaging in influence-peddling while they held jobs in the Trump Administration. That, too, was bad. But, again, former President Trump never pretended to be the moral leader of the country, whereas Joe Biden purports himself as a scion of ethics and principles.
And “Jarvanka’s” alleged corruption was nowhere near as long-lasting as Hunter Biden’s was.
It’s Time for a Little Whataboutism
Plus, unlike Biden, Donald Trump has had multiple ongoing, publicized, and totally exaggerated grand jury investigations into an assortment of charges made against him. Sure, Biden is having to contend with the amorphous House Republican investigation into his son, Hunter.
The forty-sixth president is under a grand jury investigation of his own for allegedly mishandling classified documents. Sadly, though, those investigations are not gaining the level of media coverage that Trump’s cases are getting.
More gallingly, too, is the fact that few believe anything substantive will be done to punish Biden for his misdeeds.
The best way for getting rid of Joe Biden remains the 2024 Presidential Election. It won’t be anything more than the set of complex lies and exaggerations that Biden and the Democrats have concocted to present Biden as the superior candidate that takes President Biden down.
Because it’s proving nearly impossible to stop the flood of damaging information from bubbling up to the surface in ways that not even the friendly mainstream press can avoid.
I’ve said it before. Joe Biden is going down, one way or the other. It just might be the destruction of his false presentation as “America’s grandfather” and revelations of his excessive hypocrisy that does the forty-sixth president in.
The only real concern is: will Joe Biden be taken down politically before the election, or will the system continue protecting him long enough to ensure that the Democrats retain the White House?
