Morning Greatness: Media Discovers Hunter Biden Is Under Investigation

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president has lunch with State Attorneys General
  • President Trump delivers remarks at the Congressional Ball

 

Two minutes of hate:

On Wednesday, the media reported that Hunter Biden’s “tax affairs” are under investigation by the feds. Notably, this story really broke in October but was inconvenient for the media’s political missions so they ignored it. You can read the story right here, at American Greatness, where we published it on October 29. Hunter Biden released a statement yesterday which fired up the Democrat-media damage control spin cycle. “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors,” Hunter Biden said. But it was the media industrial complex that shut down all reporting on Hunter’s filthy laptops detailing his “business” that were turned over to the FBI and Rudy Giuliani after sitting in a repair shop for months, unclaimed. In addition to sparking the curiosity the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, the the Southern District of New York also “scrutinized Hunter Biden’s finances, according to the person with direct knowledge of the investigation,” writes the advertorial Politico. But there’s more:

federal authorities in the Western District of Pennsylvania are conducting a criminal investigation of a hospital business in which Joe Biden’s brother James was involved. Federal officials have asked questions about James Biden’s role in the business, according to a second person with direct knowledge of that investigation, who said it remains ongoing.

Of course, there’s no indication that Joe Biden a.k.a. “the big guy” is involved or aware of any of the family grift, a newly plausible standard since the Trump family was certainly not treated to the same gentle media caress on their business affairs. Ric Grenell knows what’s up and asked Jake Tapper, the Ron Popeil of CNN, “This story broke in October. You didn’t do it then,” said Grenell. “Were you instructed to ignore it until after the election?”

On to “President” Shanghai Swalwell who got honey potted by a Chinese spy while belching out feverish RUSSIA collusion conspiracy fantasies for four years. Christine Fang, who allegedly slept with at least two US mayors in addition to working on the Swalwell campaign and putting an intern in his office. This is another story the media is totally ignoring:

ABC News, CBS News and NBC News did not report the news on their morning or evening shows for the entirety of Tuesday, according to Fox News. Cable news networks did not fair much better, with MSNBC spending about five minutes of Tuesday on the report during the early hours. Meanwhile, CNN did not do any reporting on-air or on its online website, Fox News reported.

On the campaign front, 17 states have joined Texas in their lawsuit currently with the SCOTUS. The states include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia. I think Arizona has also joined so it’s up to 18. Texas filed the lawsuit on Monday, arguing that the battleground states “violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.” The case also argues that there were different voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Lastly, Texas argues that there were “irregularities” as a result of the state’s disparate voting processes.

SCOTUS has told the states to respond to the suit by Thursday at 3pm. President Trump has asked Ted Cruz to argue the case should the SCOTUS decide to hear it. I would love to watch that on television.

Finally, You Tube announced on Wednesday that the company will not allow any content that suggests there was vote fraud in the 2020 election:  “we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections. How much content exists on YouTube shrieking about the RUSSIA collusion hoax or other insane Trump conspiracies? Outrageous.
