Hunter Biden Is Back In The News. . . So The Media Goes Again For The Scoop

It seems like whenever Hunter Biden is in the news, the Biden staff screams, the media screams, “we all scream for ice cream.” On October 19, 2020, the Biden campaign and its protective cocoon of media faced the discovery of Hunter’s presumed laptop with details of his (and his uncle’s) influence peddling while Joe Biden was Vice President. The solution? Joe Biden went for ice cream and the media peppered him with questions about his confectionary choice (Spoiler: he ordered a two-scoop chocolate and vanilla combo) Then they went away.

Now, Hunter is back in the news as new emails surfaced that directly contradict what Joe Biden has said to those every same reporters. Biden and the media seemed to make a beeline for the nearest ice cream shop. It turns out that now Biden now prefers . . . (wait for it). . . chocolate chip.

The only indication that there were still any reporters present was a soft scoop question “Mr. President, what is your message to Republicans who are prepared to block the Jan. 6 commission?” Biden responded “Eat some chocolate chip.” It summed up the state of journalism in America perfectly.  The media got their intended scoop. And this time the scoop was actually different!

It is not clear how long the President’s cholesterol or the media’s reputation can tolerate this pattern.

Before the election, the national media and social media companies imposed a virtual blackout on the Hunter Biden story.  Even when Biden’s laptop emerged with highly embarrassing and incriminating emails, Democratic politicians and the media pushed a conspiracy theory that the emails might be Russian misinformation, even though the recipients of the emails confirmed their authenticity and American intelligence dismissed the theory.  Worse yet, a key business associate of the Bidens, Anthony Bobulinski, confirmed the authenticity of the emails and accused Joe Biden of lying about his involvement. Bobulinski detailed meeting with Joe Biden in a hotel to go over the dealings.

Social media companies like Twitter responded by barring the original New York Post story before the election. The media (which exhaustively investigated any story involving the Trump children) simply ignored the growing evidence that Joe Biden lied repeatedly for months in claiming to have had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings. The media refused to investigate the story even after Hunter himself contradicted his father’s repeated denial.

Soon after Biden was safely elected, the media began to reluctantly acknowledge that the laptop might be authentic while avoiding the obvious questions about millions acquired from influence peddling or Joe Biden’s apparent lying to these reporters.

The laptop revealed that, while receiving millions from the Chinese and other foreign sources, Hunter was an utter mess. He admits that during this period he was a crack addict and alcoholic: “[d]rinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself in a room is absolutely, completely debilitating” as well as “smoking crack around the clock.”

The new emails contain additional information directly contradicting Joe Biden. In addition to earlier pictures from golf trips and references to his involvement or knowledge, the new material refers to an actual dinner arranged in Washington, D.C.

Hunter arranged for then Vice President Biden to have dinner on April 16, 2015 with his Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates. They appropriately chose a private room at Café Milano, a Georgetown restaurant that brags that it is “Where the world’s most powerful people go.”  After the dinner, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father: “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”

Notably, the guest list from Hunter three weeks before included Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, and Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov (a notoriously corrupt politician). While one email pitched the dinner as connected to the World Food Program USA, it was a smörgåsbord of influence peddling and purchasing.

Hunter and his uncle in the meantime were reportedly racking in massive amounts. Baturina wired $3.5 million on Feb. 14, 2014, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, a Delaware-based investment firm co-founded by Hunter and Devon Archer, a former adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry.

Notably, these sources of income for Hunter would largely dry up after his father left office and his value as an influence peddler was lost.

The Chinese files also raise questions over how the Chinese funneled money to the Bidens when Hunter said he was a hopeless crack addict. Hunter worked with Patrick Ho Chi Ping who was a corrupt businessman closely associated with the Chinese government. He was later convicted of bribery in dealings associated with the energy conglomerate CEFC China Energy, the same company that paid Hunter. Hunter’s “renumeration package” included a possible return of $10 million. Hunter reportedly received millions from the company as well as a 2.8-carat diamond from CEFC’s founder and former chairman Ye Jianming.

Some of the emails are from a 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, who talks about Hunter’s ample expense allowance. On some of his charges, she notes “not sure if the accounting department will let this go.”  However, when the company collapsed, she told Hunter to run up charges on the accounts to “keep as much as you can” before the company dissolved.

The record is now rife with individuals associated with foreign governments and intelligence organizations giving millions to Hunter and his uncle as well as luxurious expenses and gifts. Moreover, given the apparent illegal conduct captured in the images, it is reasonable to expect that these foreign governments hoped to have influence that was not just limited to the windfall payments.

That is why everyone is (again) eating ice cream. Call it a comfort food for the politically and journalistically challenged.`

  1. Joe Biden’s face is so full of plastic, his head full of hair plugs, his mouth full of veneers, that one wonders when he had the time to get so much ‘work’ done on his looks, what with flying around the world facilitating bribes and payoffs for his greedy family and all.

    Hunter has had a lot of work done.

    So has daughter Ashley.

    All of them look entirely better and different than ‘before’ plastic surgery and veneers.

    Joe Biden’s face today looks nothing like the real Joe Biden who stabbed Clarence Thomas in the back.

    The Big Lie is that Joe Biden is an honest politician working hard for the little guy, the middle class, the blue collar workers — all of this is a Big Lie.

    Joe Biden is nasty, greedy, vain, and one of the dirtiest most dishonest politicians around.

    And his policies are destroying middle class wages and jobs.

    That is the truth the media will never tell you.

    1. Ivanka before and after plastic surgery:

      The only thing phonier than Ivanka’s nose are Melania’s boobs and everything that comes out of Trump’s mouth.

      Again, Trump lost a a $25 million lawsuit for defrauding students, just as he was taking office.

      2. Was fined $2 million for stealing from his own charity, and is disallowed from running a charity in New York ever again.

      3. Bragged about chasing married women and grabbing them by the pussy.

      4. Shagged a sad old stripper and paid her off $130,000 to close her mouth.

      All the accusations against the Bidens are just a smokescreen to distract proles dumb enough to believe it all.

      Go read the American Jobs Proposal. That’s MAGA.

      1. Ben, thanks for that….

        I think Ivanka and Melania look wonderful. Good for them.

        Now do Joe and Hunter, et al.

        And, can you answer this question: is there any foreign government, foreign business or foreign enemy that Joe Biden and his family have not, or, are not, taking bribes from?

      2. You know that anyone who proudly referred to himself as “the poorest man in Congress” for much of the 36 years he served in the Senate is corrupt. The man doth protest too much about how “poor” he is/was.

        Then we find out Joe is referred to as he Big Guy getting a 10 percent cut from the family corruption business dealings run by his crack addict loser son.

    2. Darren, please take a poll in lieu of a formal petition, then please ban Ben Marcus for life for being the malign, erroneous, fraudulent, uncivil, hysterical, incoherent, non-productive, counterproductive and vacuous troll that he is.

      1. George, Ben is widely ignored and often forgets to take his Haldol before his expansive mouth and microscopic brain cell begin to hemorrhage…

        Just saying 😉

      1. That’s probably why Joe Biden didn’t fire the US Attorney in Delaware when he took over, as is the custom for Us Presidents, to fire all the US Attorneys and replace them. And the reason he didn’t fire him, noting that he was appointed by Trump, was that he was investigating Hunter Biden, and Joe didn’t want to appear to be corrupting the judiciary to influence the outcome of whatever that US Attorney finds on his son. would Trump have done that? No way.

  2. It’s not just the truth found on Hunters laptop that we should be worried about. The Ukrainians know the truth. The Chinese know the truth. They knew the truth before it was revealed on Hunters laptop. There’s another aspect to this story. Was this one of the reasons that the Chinese government was so vehemently defended by the Democrats in their complicity of the spread of the Corona virus? Zi Jinpings laptop has the answer.

  3. It is not healthy for the republic to have the media fawn over any political party. This allows corruption and incompetence to continue. Nor is it beneficial for the media to have such a consuming hatred for a political party that it fabricates false stories and pushes propaganda. This is the behavior of a State Propaganda machine, only it’s the convergent evolution of private media approximating State.

    We need that happy medium of journalists keeping the government honest (or its closest approximation), and accountable. We need tough questions asked, and investigated, of anyone in any office. Tough but fair.

  4. The Democrats said that Trump could be compromised by a pee tape. They shouted their scoop from the mountain tops. Now we have proof from Hunters laptop that the Ukrainians were paying him off and dear old dad not only knew about it but showed up at the negotiating table to make sure they got a good deal. Like Bill and Loretta they were only talking about their grandchildren. These scoops have been melting on the sidewalk for a long time and the MSM refuses to clean them up.

    1. Joe Biden’s family was making deals, taking bribes and doing business with some of the most notoriously corrupt actors in Russia, Ukraine and China while he was Obama’s VP — even flying around on AF2 with old Joe — and yet the propaganda media has zero interest in looking at any of it –even now as it corrupts Joe Biden’s illegitimate presidency.

      Joe Biden is one of the filthiest politicians around.

      The media is happy to portray him as good old lunch box Joe enjoying ice cream with his grandkids.

      That is The Big Lie.

    2. Those scoops you are talking about are not droppings from Groping Joe’s Ice Cream cones……but more like droppings from his Dog that keeps biting folks.

  5. A kleptocratic politician, with a cracked-addicted son as a conspirator, sells out his country to its enemies.

    Makes the Borgias look like statesmen.

  6. JT is part of the national media as a contributor to Fox, Hill, and other media outlets so it seems silly to write a story about the media not covering a story when he is covering the story.

    1. It’s obvious that he is writing about CNN, ABC, NPR, NBC, PBS, NY TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, FACEBOOK, TWITTER and other branches of the Democratic Party.

  7. When one talks about potential criminal conspiracies, the Biden Family Influence Peddlers should be at the top of the list. I wonder if the Clinton’s are happy or sad not to get such notoriety.

  8. Do Democrats know they are being lied to day in and day out by the media propagandists? Do they care?

  9. Trump called the media the Enemy of The People. He was right again.

  10. At various points in the last few months, the news media, newly free of the Trump White House, have made fledgling efforts to report some of the flaws in the Biden family while suppressing reports of the flaws of Kamala Harris, whom they viewed as an acceptable successor should the president’s cognitive abilities continue to decline.

    Now, however, it has become clear the Kamala Harris is not remotely up to the job. She is not a bright person, made worse by the fact that she is also a person who believes in nothing, a woman who brazenly stands out, even in a cynical town like Washington, as someone who is willing to adopt any position that advances her unquenchable thirst for power.

    As a result, the news media seem to have rededicated themselves to not reporting the flaws of Biden and his family. A good decision for a group dedicated to advancing the causes of left wing of the Democratic Party.

    1. Are there any moderate Democrats left? They all dance to the AOC sirens sweetly singing. The rocks of the shore could soon be their destiny.

    2. Donald Trump:

      1. Lost a $25 million lawsuit for defrauding students, just as he was taking office.

      2. Was fined $2 million for stealing from his own charity, and is disallowed from running a charity in New York ever again.

      3. Bragged about chasing married women and grabbing them by the pussy.

      4. Shagged a sad old stripper then paid her off $130,000 to keep quiet.

      5. Has been involved in several thousand lawsuits – with more to come.

      6. Played the fiddle and thumbed his lips and babbled about Lysol and anti-malarials as a pandemic swept America, killed hundreds of thousands, cost the economy tens of trillions.

      7. Played pattycake with Putin and Russia by trying to sweettalk them into the G7 – as Merkel and Trudeau and them snickered in their handkerchiefs.

      8. Might just be going to prison for tax evasion.

      If you want America to continue to become a Third World kleptocracy, run by Banana Republicans, please continue to support Trump.

      The guy is an unabashed crook who thinks that having money protects him from following the rules.

      Hopefully he is about to find out that is not true.

      And I’ve said this before and I will say it again: Biden oversaw Obamas economic recovery effort in 2009.

      Part of that was to loan Tesla $465 million to robotize the Fremont plant and build the S.

      Tesla paid that loan back five years in advance and that money has created tens of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions in wealth.

      Hundreds of billions. The program Biden oversaw.

      Please point to anything Trump attempted or achieved that comes anywhere close to that.

      Tesla is true MAGA – leading the world in technology, manufacturing in America/California, kicking ass and making billions while changing the world.

      Did Trump ever mention Tesla? No, because Tesla is in California and California is too smart to have anything to do with Trump.

      There’s more to MAGA than prancing around in a red hat and making sycophants smell your farts.

      Again: What is Trump’s legacy: What did he attempt? What did he change? What did he achieve?


      1. Hey Ben, did you happen to notice that Trump no longer has the reins. The guy in now makes personnel deals with Ukrainians and the Chinese. Makes you long for the days when your President only muffed some bimbo. Two alternatives to chose from. Muffin some bimbo or compromising national security. Ben’s going with compromising national security.

          1. Ben, when you can’t answer the argument you point out a misspelling. I asked do you prefer someone who miffed a bimbo to someone who compromised national security to make himself and his family wealthy? You refuse to answer the question. It must be considered that you also are a friend of China.

          2. I misspelled a word and Ben compares me to a Mongol. There are many descendants of the Mongol race who are now American citizens. Sounds like racism on Ben’s part to me. He thought it so he blabbed it.

      2. I love when Ben lists his complaints without discussion. It demonstrates his lack of knowledge and intelligence. If someone were to point out the true facts of what Ben says he would run away like he done so many times before.

        If you are ready not to run away again, Ben, I will take a few of your factoids that leave the truth behind and explain them. We can then debate the facts. In the meantime we know you carry a small stick and a big mouth.

    1. Biden is an illegitimate president.

      Biden is a puppet controlled by…..whom? Who are the puppet masters?

  11. I scream.
    U scream.
    We all scream.
    Hunter Biden is a movie screen.

  12. There are no true information pieces in the mainstream media, only opinion pieces with their liberal agenda as the focus. For once, I would love to see an article with just facts (not “truths”, which are fundamentally biased) and let me form my own opinion.

  13. Hunter likes ice cream delivered by the secret service

    Hunter Biden is living in a $5.4 million dollar property in Venice, California

    The 51-year-old father of five is believed to be renting the property from Sweetgreen co-founder and CEO Jonathan Neman for $25,000 a month.

    The family is now under 24-hour Secret Service protection.

  14. Good morning, in case you don’t know, FB prevented me from posting the Tony Bobulinski story, and, they prevented me from sharing the story via messenger, with friends and family. I had to email the information. Obviously, that’s way too much power.

  15. Ok Leftys. It is time for all of you to not address the subject matter that Turley addressed on HIS BLOG and somehow make this about Trump. Maybe refer to the time that he requested 2 scoops and everyone else got 1?

  16. All politicians suck the blood of the people as they pay themselves. Some seem like actual vampires with evil motives, not mere greed.
    I disagree about the ice cream. Double-chocolate chip — nothing white in sight.

  17. We have been lied to by Biden, the Dems, and the media.

    Up to us to channel our votes and money elsewhere.

    As an example, I subscribe to Glenn Greenwald’s column.

    My future votes just wait for a conservative candidate.

    No time or money to WaPo or NYT. And certainly no TV.

    What amazes me is the intellectual dishonesty of the Lefties. They pay to be lied to. Pathetic people.

    1. MC, you are right, it is people like Glenn Greenwald and Jonathan Turley that are the honest people in the media today. There are of course others as well and we must continue to loudly champion the few honest reporters and commentators that manage to not get silenced.

      In about ten seconds Anonymous will come here and in only ten or twenty comments attempt to blame Trump or the right for all of society’s ills. He will then do his best to use the “protesters veto” by inundating the site with useless, one-sided, non-sequiturs as a way to derail the actual conversation.

      1. You summed up why I don’t read Amonymous’ many posts.

        He is a sad case, living his life on these blogs.

        1. The Pentagon has admitted to a “secret army” 60k strong most of whom are online trolls. There are lots of posters like anonymous, but some of them are paid by our government.

          The Smith Mundt act was removed by Obama. Trump never mentioned that or reinstated it. It made it illegal to propagandize the American people. Now they can lie to us with impunity, no fear of repercussion. Since 2013.And Trump let that stand. He also resigned from the actors union after losing the election.

          I fear it is all a sham and we really do not have anyone truly “on our side’
          Not even DJT

      2. Exactly right. As I told SM last week, I won’t bother with any of the Anonymous commenters anymore.

    2. Monument– “My future votes just wait for a conservative candidate.”
      Given what is coming out about the last election are you even confident you will have “future votes”?

  18. The Press is corrupt like most of the Dim controlled institutions. They really are an evil lot. I’m hoping I see the reckoning soon. It ought to be fun.

    1. I’ve been waiting for reckoning, but it seems each bombshell fizzles. I know truth, like an air bubble in the sea, finds its way to the surface, but it’s getting hard to hold out hope it will come in time to save the country.

      1. The country is being saved right now, dingaling, from Trump and the Banana Republicans, by Biden and the Democrats.

        Just as Obama saved the country after Bush43 s#@# the table.

        Republicans screw it up. Democrats clean it up.

        Don’t be such a sap.

  19. WWARJD? (what would a real journalist do). Of course, a real story would not get by the party gatekeeper
