The Miraculously Changing Narrative Around Biden’s Involvement in Hunter Inc.

The media are committed to defending the first family, no matter what facts emerge.

Rarely have newsrooms committed so much effort to protecting men of such little character.

As recently as just four years ago, the New York Times and other news outlets would have jumped at the chance to investigate allegations that the president and his son operated an influence-peddling operation involving foreign nationals. Every editor at every major newsroom would be barking at his staff right now, demanding that they look into whether the president’s son had, in fact, leveraged the family name in return for huge sums of cash, whether the president got a cut of the action, and whether the president himself coordinated quid pro quos with well-heeled foreign interests.

But that was then. Now, there’s a Democrat in the Oval Office. For major media, most especially the New York Times, there’s not much value to the Biden family corruption story, which alleges President Joe Biden conspired with his son, Hunter, to rake in mountains of cash from foreign entities in return for certain preferred policies toward their countries. After all, according to the Times, the story is old news. It’s also none of your damn business.

Last week, after yet another fact emerged suggesting that Joe Biden had indeed been involved to some degree with his son’s overseas business dealings, contrary to what he himself stated unequivocally during the 2020 presidential election, the New York Times ran to the president’s aid with the classic “old news!” defense.

“It has long been known that the elder Mr. Biden at times interacted with his son’s business partners,” the paper of record declared on Monday.

Is that so? This thing Joe Biden vigorously denied in the 2020 election has “long been known”?

Recall that Biden declared in the 2020 election, “I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period.”

“And what I will do is the same thing we did in our administration,” he added. “There will be an absolute wall between personal and private [business interests] and the government. There wasn’t any hint of scandal at all when we were there. And I’m going to propose the same kind of strict, strict rules. That’s why I never talked with my son or my brother or anyone else — even distant family — about their business interests. Period.”

That same year, during a campaign event in Iowa, Biden insisted again that he had never, ever spoken to his son about his business interests.

“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be looking at Trump. . . . Everybody looked at [allegations that I spoke with Hunter about his overseas business activities] and everybody looked at it and said there is nothing there. Ask the right questions.”

Later, after it became increasingly likely that Joe Biden had, in fact, interacted with his son’s business partners, the White House amended, ever so slightly, the president’s earlier assurances.

“The answer remains the same,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in July. “The president was never in business with his son. I just don’t have anything else to add.”

    BIDEN CRIME FAMILY: Narrative changes
    For months, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has insisted (like others in the Biden administration including the “Big Guy” himself) that Joe Biden “never discussed” Hunter’s foreign business deals with his father. (Yeah, right.)

    Now that reliable whistleblowers and witnesses are testifying under oath at Congressional hearings that Vice President Joe Biden was part of some discussions, Jean-Pierre’s wording has changed. During her daily press briefings, it’s gone from Hunter “never discussed” his business shenanigans with poppa to Hunter was “never in business” with poppa. (Yeah, right.)

    The Bidens. A lying mob style family with DOD protection. The real question is who are the puppet masters behind the Bidens? Hunter selling his “paintings” for $500K …. legal bribery. And what was he doing carrying a gun. Tax issues? And by the way, who is running the NYTimes? All they care about is getting their SALT tax deductions. What a life being part of the elite in the USofA. Sincerely, Bob – just an old Anarchist living in the Bayview of San Francisco.
