Biden corruption

Tangled up in red

Featured image Miranda Devine revisits and restates the evidence of Biden family corruption implicating President Biden in her New York Post column “Hunter and Joe Biden’s links go deeper by the day.” Today she focuses on what I call Biden’s China syndrome. Devine cites the 2018 New York Times story “A Chinese Tycoon Sought Power and Influence. Washington Responded.” The Times story sports the bylines of four — count ’em — Times »

Biden’s China syndrome

Featured image Matt Ridley is the co-author of Viral: The Search For the Origin of Covid-19. It has just been published in an updated paperback edition (in the UK, anyway). He summarizes “The case for the lab-leak theory” in a timely column for Spiked. It seems to me that Ridley makes a powerful case. China has suppressed access to all information bearing on the lab-leak theory. Given that the CCP knows every »

The O’Keefe Project: Unseal me here

Featured image I’ve followed the government’s investigation of James O’Keefe and Ashley Biden’s diary since the New York Times broke the story with a little help from its friends in the national security establishment. What did O’Keefe do wrong? What makes it a federal case? This much is clear to me: the Biden Justice Department is out to get James O’Keefe. Pending before the court that signed off on the search warrants »

The O’Keefe Project: James O’Keefe writes

Featured image This past Friday evening Tucker Carlson devoted his 18-minute opening segment (monologue plus guests Josh Boswell and Harmeet Dhillon) to the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary. Project Veritas — the object of the FBI’s investigation into the alleged “theft” of the diary (see this tab) — posted the segment in its entirety on YouTube, but YouTube removed it upon the objection of FOX News. It’s the kind of segment that »

The O’Keefe Project: Whistleblower revisited

Featured image The mind-boggling story of Ashley Biden’s diary disappears from the news for months at a time. I have sought to keep it front of mind and do what can be done to advance it. Touching base with Project Veritas yesterday, I came up empty. However, I was reminded of May’s whistleblower installment of the saga that had completely slipped my mind. All my posts tracking the story are accessible here. »

The O’Keefe Project: Tucker goes to town

Featured image We have covered the FBI’s investigation of the case of Ashley Biden’s diary in a series of 17 posts under the heading of “The O’Keefe Project.” This is the eighteenth. I don’t think anyone has devoted as much attention to the story as we have. The collaboration of the FBI with the New York Times attracted my interest, but my judgment is that every aspect of the story merits attention. »

“My Dinner With Hunter Biden”

Featured image The Washington Examiner has extracted a six-minute sound file from Hunter Biden’s laptop that is so appalling that you have to hear it not to believe it. I know this is asking a lot, as one of the first things that strikes you is how much the hapless Hunter sounds just like his dad, and thinks like him, too. Indeed it is tempting to say that Joe Biden is his »

The Post takes offense

Featured image Politico frequently reads like an internal house organ of the Democratic Party and a key component of the Democrats’ public relations adjunct. Natasha Bertrand’s October 2020 Politico story promoting the line that the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop coverage constituted Russian disinformation is a classic disgrace. Bertrand’s story ran under the headline “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say.” Moving on from Politico, Bertrand »

White man’s problems: The sequel

Featured image New York Post columnist Miranda Devine and two Post reporters seem to have discovered the benefactor who has kept Hunter Biden rolling in the style to which he has become accustomed. He is a wealthy Hollywood figure named Kevin Morris. Morris has money to burn from sources other than the royalties on White Man’s Problems, his 2014 book of short stories. Here is the heart of the Post story: A »

Night of the Hunter

Featured image The New York Post debuts an excerpt of John Paul Mac Isaac’s memoir American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth. The Post has published the excerpt under the headline “The night I met Hunter Biden: Mac Shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac recounts fateful encounter in exclusive excerpt.” It is the story the Post reported before the 2020 presidential election, but it is the story that could not be »

The Melber foresight

Featured image MSNBC hosts will remain free to reveal themselves as fools and tools on Twitter, but Ari Melber is exercised about the threat posed by Elon Musk’s takeover of the platform. Melber explains: “If you own all of Twitter or Facebook or what have you, you don’t have to explain yourself, you don’t even have to be transparent, you could secretly ban one party’s candidate or all of its candidates, all »

Psaki psidesteps

Featured image Jon Levine and Miranda Devine reported in their April 23 New York Post story that “Joe Biden met with Hunter Biden business partner at the White House.” The business partner was Eric Schwerin: “Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing.” Levine and Devine »

Disinformation, American style

Featured image Peter Van Buren looks back at the question of “disinformation” that was floated by 51 former intelligence officials to suppress the news extracted by the New York Post from Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 election. Van Buren’s Spectator column notes in the subhead “The only disinformation op in 2020 was run against American voters by their own intelligence community” (the Spectator has taken the column out from behind its »

In search of “the big guy”

Featured image We don’t need to be reminded not to get excited about Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden ever being brought to justice or even seriously embarrassed. The coverage of the longstanding grand jury investigation into Hunter Biden is nevertheless reaching a fever pitch. Today’s New York Post cover story reports that a grand jury witness was asked to identify “the big guy” in Hunter Biden’s laptop emails. Please spare me. The »

The case of the curious omissions

Featured image This week the Washington Post published a story on the contents of Hunter Biden’s very real laptop. The FBI have misplaced the laptop, but the Post has possessed the contents since June 2021. Now at least part of the story can be told. When the New York Post first broke the laptop story in October 2020, a few weeks before the presidential election, the Washington Post was not happy about »

Hunter Biden: First the Times, Now the Post

Featured image We’ve noted several times recently that Hunter Biden’s corruption is getting more attention from the mainstream media, which makes you wonder whether “Operation Remove Joe” has commenced in earnest. First there was the New York Times acknowledgement that the Hunter Biden laptop was “authentic,” after suppressing any mention of it for two years. Today the Washington Post weighs in with a very damaging story about Hunter Biden’s “business” deals overseas: »

How Low Can Biden Fall?

Featured image We’ve been watching the fallout of Biden’s gaffe about regime change in the Soviet Union Russia, but it is hard to top today’s headline in the Wall Street Journal for droll understatement: The story includes this similarly droll bit of “reporting”: It wasn’t clear if Mr. Biden’s statement was designed to send a message to Mr. Putin and the international community, or simply a verbal misstep. All of which brings us to »
