Yesterday, we brought you the story of “journalists” at the Washington Post and The New York Times spending years chasing a concocted story about Trump “colluding” with Russia during his 2016 campaign and winning a Pulitzer Prize for their efforts. They helped spark an anti-Trump media feeding frenzy that had credulous “reporters” falling all over themselves to cover the fake story. (And, yes, they SHOULD be made to give their Pulitzer back.) Today, let’s use that story to set the scene for another, contrasting one: the utter lack of attention given by most of the media to Hunter Biden’s laptop story –- augmented by Big Tech’s censorship of it –- and what the laptop actually reveals about Hunter’s family of grifters and influence peddlers.
Miranda Devine of The New York Post has wisely spent her time chasing a REAL story, not the fake one that obsessed most of the media, and her new book has just hit the stands. It’s called “LAPTOP FROM HELL: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide.”
The title LAPTOP FROM HELL comes from a typically colorful remark made by Trump. “Joe, they’re calling you a corrupt politician,” Trump said in the last debate before the election. “Take a look at the laptop from hell.”
You know the basic story of how an apparently dazed and confused Hunter left his laptop at a computer repair shop in Delaware in the spring of 2019, only a few days before his father announced he was running for President, and how the FBI ended up with it in what I like to call “protective custody” (they were protecting Joe). Not only is it filled with video evidence of grotesque debauchery, but it also shows how Hunter and the family sold access to his powerful dad. In her book, Devine clarifies exactly what is on the laptop, what it tells about President Biden and the whole Biden family, and what China knows.
The publisher, Simon & Schuster, describes her book as “a treasure trove of corporate documents, emails, text messages, photographs, and voice recordings, spanning a decade, [providing] the first evidence that President Joe Biden was involved in his son’s ventures in China, Ukraine, and beyond, despite his repeated denials.”
Just as importantly, “it exposes the coordinated censorship operation by Big Tech, the media establishment, and former intelligence operatives to stifle the New York Post’s coverage, in a chilling exercise of raw political power three weeks before the 2020 election.” Recall that as the election loomed, Facebook and Twitter censored the breaking NYP laptop story, ensuring that most voters wouldn’t know about the Biden “family business” when they cast their ballots. The online reach of the NYP is 80 million! Social media essentially used their control of the news to interfere with the election. They wanted to shape the outcome, and they did.
(Note: incidentally, another new book that ties Big Tech to the election outcome is Mollie Hemingway’s RIGGED. There’s some good holiday reading material available right now!)
Recall also that when House Democrats were impeaching President Trump for allegedly even mentioning an investigation of the Bidens in a phone call to the president of Ukraine –- a fake whistleblower report turned this into something it wasn’t; fortunately, there was a transcript –- the laptop would have contained evidence showing this corruption was real. But the FBI kept quiet.
Senior intelligence officials covered it up, too. Just five days after the NYP published its first Hunter story, then-CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper led 50 former intel officials in signing an open letter, published in Politico, saying the material on the laptop had “all the earmarks of a Russian information operation.” This was made up --- they apparently hadn't even seen it.
Now, more than a year after Devine published her first stories about the laptop, she has a new commentary in the NYP that times nicely with the release of her book. She notes that many of those who voted for Biden are disenchanted now, as he has turned out to be a very different person from the man they though they were voting for.
This, she says, is the fault of the media, for denying them the “normal due diligence” they expect the media to conduct on presidential candidates. That’s an understatement; in their censorship of the story, they went beyond lack of due diligence to outright deception.
According to the Media Research Center, about half of all those who voted for Biden in 2020 didn't know anything about Hunter’s laptop scandal. And almost 10 percent said they wouldn’t have voted for Biden if they’d known of this corruption. I’d venture to say that once all the sordid details are out, that figure will be much higher than 10 percent. This is grift on a massive, global scale.
We know the media would have conducted an overabundance of due diligence on Trump and HIS family if there had been even a whiff of such scandal. Can you imagine the relentless, merciless coverage they would've given even the tiniest hint of scandal about Trump’s offspring? (On the other hand, it’s hard to imagine even a hypothetical story of corruption about such a devoted, hard-working family as Trump’s.) As it was, they tried to say the Trump family had gotten into politics to enrich themselves, when that wasn’t at all true. But this is the media’s power: not only can they make stuff up about a candidate they don’t support, but they can also look the other way for a candidate or party they do support. In 2020, they were doing both.
The NYP editorial board has a piece on the laptop story as well: “Sorry, but Hunter’s profiteering matters --- even if the rest of the press ignores it.” They point out that the Chinese had insinuated themselves into Hunter’s life enough to bestow upon him a three-carat diamond, which he later told the New Yorker he thought of as simply “a nice gesture.” And they quickly sum up why we should infer from what’s on the laptop that Joe Biden was “the big guy” who got 10 percent of the proceeds.
It appears that the Chinese were paying Joe Biden millions through his son, the editors say. But when they try to ask the administration about this, it ignores them, “knowing that CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, et al., have its back and will never press things.” The NYP editors suggest that if Biden wants millions more for IRS enforcement, this should include an audit of his own income and a determination of whether he had declared as income the money Hunter passed along to him. (They actually did share a bank account.) I’d go for that.
Finally, Rabbi Dov Fischer at The American Spectator has a great piece about the mutually profitable relationship between the Bidens and China. China evidently got its money’s worth from Hunter and his connections when his dad was VP. One might even say the Bidens' business exploits put the “vice” in “Vice President.”
