The Art of Scandal Implosion: The Political and Media Elite Prepare To Drop Hunter Biden in a “Controlled Demolition”

Below is my column in Fox News on the status of the Hunter Biden investigation and how it presents a challenge for many in Washington. Due to the continued work of a small number of media outlets like the New York Post, it is no longer possible to bury the story or continue the false claim that it is “Russian disinformation.” The hope now appears to be a “controlled demolition” where Hunter is indicted on limited grounds without causing collateral damage to the political and media establishment. Scandal implosion is as much an art as it is a science and could be the most brilliant achievement in this ongoing scandal.

Here is the column:

For news junkies, there has been a remarkable and sudden shift in the media in the coverage of the Hunter Biden scandal. The shift is the very fact that there is suddenly coverage of the Hunter Biden scandal. From CNN to NPR, reporters are now acknowledging that the infamous laptop is not “Russian disinformation” as was widely claimed before the 2020 election. After years of burying the story, the media is now attempting an even more precarious exercise.

It is called controlled demolition: the implosion of a scandal to limit any blast effect on nearby structures or individuals. Like those buildings dropped between other structures, it takes precision and, most importantly, cooperation to pull off.  Specifically, this controlled demolition will require the perfect timing of the media, Democratic politicians, and most importantly, the Justice Department.

That was the same alliance that successfully killed the story before the election despite evidence of a multimillion dollar influence peddling scheme by the Biden family. The media eagerly spread the false claim of 51 intelligence experts who declared that the laptop was likely “Russian disinformation.” Twitter and social media companies imposed a news blackout before the election. Recently, GOP senators also accused the Justice Department of effectively spiking the investigation — displaying the same bias documented in the Russian collusion investigation.

For his part, Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to appoint a special counsel despite the overwhelming need for such an appointment. Even former Attorney General Bill Barr recently said that new evidence makes such an appointment essential ( a reversal of his initial position in giving the case to United States Attorney David Weiss in Delaware).

I previously wrote a column on the one year anniversary of the Hunter Biden laptop story that marveled at the success of the Biden family in making the scandal vanish before that 2020 election. It was analogized to Houdini making his 10,000-pound elephant Jennie disappear in his act. With the help of the media, the Biden trick occurred live before an audience of millions.

The problem is the public can now see the elephant.

That is why the media is now recalibrating. That was most evident in the recent statement of New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman that “I know The New York Times felt it didn’t pursue it originally as much as it wanted to; then it followed up, as I recall.” Friedman does not explain what overrode that journalistic interest in the story or why the “follow up” came a year after the election of Joe Biden.

It appears that President Biden is no longer seen as a political asset with most Democrats refusing to publicly support him in his promised reelection bid. Biden now  could endanger Democratic control of Congress. The question is how to drop Hunter (and even his father) without causing damage to the media, the Democrats, or others in Washington. It requires a controlled demolition.

The most important thing is to control the blast. By refusing to appoint a special counsel, Merrick Garland has effectively blocked the risk of a report on the extensive influence peddling, including the repeated references to President Biden. the “Big Guy” is discussed in emails as the potential recipient of a 10 percent cut on a deal with a Chinese energy firm as well as other benefits. Emails also refer to Hunter Biden paying portions of his father’s expenses and taxes. Recently, there was additional support showing that “the Big Guy” was indeed Joe Biden.

The problem is that embarrassing evidence is mounting by the day. That includes the recent disclosure new open influence peddling by Hunter, referencing access to his father.  Some emails show Hunter using trips with his Dad to arrange meetings with business associates like Magnani. Indeed, in one exchange with Magnani, Hunter complains that he is not getting responses on his business dealings, objecting

“I have brought every single person you have ever asked me to bring to the F’ing White House and the Vice President’s house and the inauguration and then you go completely silent,. I don’t know what it is that I did but I’d like to know why I’ve delivered on every single thing you’ve ever asked – and you make me feel like I’ve done something to offend you.”

The cringeworthy email only adds to the embarrassment not of Hunter Biden but the media struggling to control the damage from the scandal.

Yet, none of that would be the focus of coverage if the case can be ended on narrow criminal charges.

In other words, the case can then be collapsed by triggering a smaller explosion. Rather than pursue wider conspiracies connected to the influence peddling, Hunter could be indicted on a few tax or lobbying counts. That would allow for a plea bargain that would allow the media to focus narrowly on those counts and not the broader influence peddling by the Biden family.

Of course, controlled demolition can at times take an unexpected turn. The greatest danger is that either house of Congress could flip to GOP control. That would open up the entire matter to congressional investigation. Yet, if a plea has already closed the case, the legal blowback could be confined.

The key to political controlled demolitions “to ‘implode’ the building, that is, make it collapse down into its footprint.” The footprint is now Hunter Biden, confining the implosion to him while leaving the media and establishment untouched.

  1. I am not a ,ember of the libertarain party.

    I vote libertarian when I can.

    It is reasonable to conclude that one is willing to be identified as a communist if you admit to voting for communists.

    BTW voting is supposed to be secret – unless you vote by mail.
    Even the CIA can not know how you voted.

    Last, voting communist is really extreme. That is about the same as voting Nazi.

  2. Brennan voted communist in one Presidential election and we have seen how he lies since.

  3. While I vehemently disagree with the alleged criminal behavior of Hunter Biden, I also would urge his family to put him under Suicide Watch. He’s an addict with a long history of self-destructive behavior. This kind of pressure is going to be too much. He should not be left alone. This is when addicts overdose, commit suicide, or get deeper into their addictions.

    Joe Biden and I disagree on most things, but he does love his son. He’s already lost one. They need to take precautions.

  4. Professor, Hunter Biden requested from John Paul Mac Isaac (“The Labtop Repairman” and author of the book “American Injustice”) data recovery of his liquid damaged “Labtop from Hell” (an excellent book written by Miranda Devine) in 4/19 [1-3] after being alerted to its existance in 10/19, “At that time, FBI agents were reportedly told that […] the computer had information *dealing with foreign interests, a pay-for-play scheme linked to the former administration, [and] lots of foreign money” [4] What the FBI did after seizing the laptop in December of 2019 is unknown [5]. Do you know about the engagement of then AG Bill Barr (R) in that matter?

  5. Than you again Anonymous the Stupid for the opportunity to continue posting election lawlessness

    #3 The Laptop Lie: More than 50 national security experts, countless news organizations and large social media firms falsely told American voters in fall 2020 that the Hunter Biden laptop with damning revelations about Biden family corruption was Russian disinformation. In fact, it was a legitimate laptop already in the FBI’s possession, and Hunter Biden was already under criminal investigation before voters cast their 2020 ballots. The false narrative had significant impact: polling shows a majority of American voters believe the pre-election censorship of the story amounted to election interference,

  6. Biden, Soros spearhead efforts against election integrity ahead of midterms

    While federal agencies under the Biden administration are seeking to increase voter registration and turnout, a group linked to left-wing megadonor George Soros is pushing for a constitutional amendment in the battleground state of Michigan that would allow Zuckerbucks to be used in election administration.

    Biden issued an executive order to all federal agencies in March 2021, instructing them to send him “a strategic plan outlining the ways identified under this review that the agency can promote voter registration and voter participation.”

  7. I’m saddened that this post repeats the media canard that Clapper, Brennan, et al. called the Hunter laptop a Russian “disinformation” campaign. The words used in their letter (which I downloaded and saved) are: “…has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” They did not suggest that the Hunter emails were fake. They simply suggested that truthful “information” should be disregarded if it comes from a Russian source.

    1. Your comment is reminiscent of the Clintonian word parsing of the late ’90s, and, frankly, insults the intelligence of the reader. The 51 partisan intelligence operatives clearly intended to influence the 2020 presidential election by, first, creating a false basis for public perception that the laptop was Russian disinformation, and second, providing a basis for their media allies to refuse to report on it.

    2. Dave ; Really ?…you went there huh. It’s pretty obvious the mission clapper and all those govt gobs performed was to lable anything from that REAL la[top as russki subterfuge as it directly and negatively effected their mission for a statist coup.

    3. The words used in their letter (which I downloaded and saved) are:

      It was written in Chinese by CCP operatives, and the original document stated:

      “你們美國人太愚蠢了,以為我們的孩子約瑟夫·拜登將被阻止成為你們的下一個傀儡政治領袖。 這都是我們新的世界秩序的一部分。 就連左宗棠雞也幫不了你”

      translation: You Americans are so stupid in thinking our boy Joseph Biden will be prevented from being your next puppet political leader. It is all part of our new world order. Not even General Tso’s chicken will help you

      🙌🏽

    4. “They simply suggested that truthful “information” should be disregarded if it comes from a Russian source.”

      Arbitrary suspicion by innuendo is *more dishonest* than a bald-faced lie. (Especially if that innuendo comes from “experts.”) Its intent is to deceive the unwary, by using weasel words and by banking on the authors’ “authority.”

      A bald-faced lie can easily be refuted. Trying to refute suspicion by innuendo is like trying to use a sieve to empty a tub of runny slime.

      And here, the motivation was obvious: Use deceit to manipulate an election.

    5. Perhaps, rather, “Clapper, Brennan, et al. called the Hunter laptop a NSA/CIA “disinformation” campaign.”

      But, Brennan was a Communist, once upon a time…

  8. They knew that the Hunter laptop was not Russian disinformation from the very start. Now they are in damage control mode. If your a Democrat you have to ask yourself, what kind of mind would create the damage in the first place and then try to cover up what they created? You could ask the same question about the mind of a con man setting in a high security prison. Both he and the leaders of the Democratic Party would give the same answer. “I did nothing wrong and if I did my lawyer will get me off with a slap on the wrist.” Go ahead, vote for them again like a dog that has been kicked and goes back to his master hoping for a pat on the head. Even the most loyal dog figures out that the pat on the head is not coming.

  9. Then there is Ghislaine Maxwell who is in prison for trafficking women but nobody is allowed to know who got the women. The johns all edged away from the damage.

    Perfectly controlled destruction.

  10. Anyone who downplays the extraordinary degree of control the leftish media has over what we see, hear and ultimately think has been mislead. The goal of moderate voters must be to mitigate this outsized influence.

  11. If you get into any trouble with the law in this country just make sure you’re a dim. That’s your get out of jail card.

  12. It’s amazing the hypocrisy in our current government scheme. We have a verifiably inept and stupid POTUS installed by the deep shadow statists. And we are all supposed to be good sheep and pretend it was all on the up and up. This ‘challenged’ potus and his family are a huge glut of corruption , back room deals , money laundering and payoffs galore. The influence peddling here is legion , and we are all aware of this elephant in the room. But our govt circus and it’s media puppets carry on about J6 and Ukraine as deflections whilst they strategize how to drop this hunter tree in the swamp so it makes no splash , let alone a sound. It’s disgusting and disheartening to see how low the FBI , CIA , and DOJ have stooped to become corrupted tools of the “shadow” state like pawns on a chessboard.
    I do not see how the US Govt and the swamp can ever redeem itself , reputation and the people in it with the huge corruption , fraud and waste therein. During the reign of communism in Russia the average citizen was aware of and knew the totality of corruption and hypocrisy at the top of the communist party apparatus. Their daily life under that had them accepting that fate and joking and poking the system of which they knew to be purposefully inept and compromised. This is exactly where we are in America today. We see the filth and smell the stench of the swamp and they brazenly dance their corruption before our eyes and tells us we know not what we see and be good sheep and just do as your told. People have a breaking point.

  13. It is too late.

    It has always been evident that this is NOT about Hunter Biden – as cringe worthy as Hunter is.

    Ignoring tax evasion, human trafficing and drug dealing, Hunter’s conduct is repulsive but legal.

    There is nothing wrong with Hunter Biden getting millions for foreigners.
    What is WRONG is that he was getting millions for securing Joe Biden’s influence.

    The big crime was Joe Biden offering the office of vice president, for sale, not Hunter Biden brokering the deal.

    1. “ The big crime was Joe Biden offering the office of vice president, for sale, not Hunter Biden brokering the deal.”

      Ooh, that’s a doozy of a lie. There is absolutely no evidence that President Biden offered the office “for sale”. That’s just a poor attempt to slander the president because that’s the trend in partisan politics.

      Nobody cares about this alleged “scandal” or “corruption” except those who stand to benefit from the peddling of the allegations.

      1. Svelaz, a purveyor of lies and stupidity. It doesn’t matter what the facts are because his rhetoric will not change even long after it has soured.

        Biden is a crook.

        1. “ Biden is a crook.”

          I wouldn’t be making such claims when you have no evidence at all. That’s called lying.

          Slandering the president is easy when you don’t care about the facts. Projecting your own behavior onto others is just an admission of what you really are.

          At least John B. Say is honest enough to admit that all the Hunter Biden claims are not criminal or illegal, just some of them are wrong. Just like the Trump children doing the same sketchy activities. They are ethically wrong, but not illegal or criminal.

          1. No one needs Svelaz to see evidence for it to be true. Svelaz repeats what he is told even when it makes no sense or is disproven. He is the closest thing to pure ignorance.

            I said nothing about Hunter, only the President who is at the center of the families crookedness. That has been adequately shown so there is no need to convey the truth to a brick.

            1. Anonymous (S. Meyer),

              “ I said nothing about Hunter, only the President who is at the center of the families crookedness. That has been adequately shown so there is no need to convey the truth to a brick.”

              You didn’t show jack squat. Saying you did is not evidence. Provide actual evidence of what is criminal that president Biden has done. That means a crime that can be articulated in law or statute. Surely you have this evidence you claim you have shown.

              1. No one needs to provide Svalez with evidence. He doesn’t bother with it. After being provided such evidence Svelaz claims it was never provided.

                Stupid and a waste of time is a bad combination.

                After dealing with the same stupidity multiple times I think a prior response is good enough.

                Svelaz writes: “Again, you provided no documentation at all. You still haven’t. You “don’t feel obligated” because you never provided them in the first place and you can’t find it. You’re just covering for your BS claim.”

                Here are a couple of locations where I mentioned the address of the FDA report. This proves you don’t know what you are talking about.

                In the first one, I copied your statement, which is what is being argued about and is completely wrong,

                You said: “All the current vaccines have been granted full approval. ”

                Below is one of the many FDA postings I made. I believe others have posted FDA sites as well

                https://jonathanturley.org/2022/01/03/new-york-announces-that-scarce-covid-19-treatments-will-be-prioritized-for-non-white-patients/comment-page-1/#comment-2148321

                In the second of the posts, I showed one of the reasons Pfizer might like this legal distinction.

                https://jonathanturley.org/2022/01/03/new-york-announces-that-scarce-covid-19-treatments-will-be-prioritized-for-non-white-patients/comment-page-3/#comment-2148317

                I posted other things from the FDA with their addresses, and much of what I said was pure quotes from the FDA.

                This proves you to be what everyone knows you to be. You were wrong again, and it isn’t just about Covid. You have been proven wrong repeatedly on a multiplicity of subjects where proof has been provided. You deny the truth and the proof provided even when it is on the same official papers you have posted.

                jonathanturley.org/2022/01/21/the-other-big-lie-democrats-fuel-doubts-over-the-legitimacy-of-the-coming-elections/comment-page-1/#comment-2153325

          2. Evidence does not equal proof.

            Evidence…just is. (There is plenty of it.)

            With proof, there is a burden.

            Proof occurs later on, down the road. In, like, in a trial?
            (I added the uptalk, to make it relatable.)

            However, you might need “evidence of the evidence,” in which case, good luck to you!

            1. Evidence and proof are the same thing. Evidence IS proof.

              If there’s plenty of evidence then there should be no problem producing it for all to see, right?

          3. English must be a second language for you. No evidence is required for opinion. Also lack of evidence by an option-holder does not make him a liar.
            I know Joe loves to smell little girl’s hair. Maybe you like to smell his nether ones.

            1. “ No evidence is required for opinion.” True. But an opinion wasn’t rendered. It was a declarative statement. That requires evidence.

              “ Also lack of evidence by an option-holder does not make him a liar.”

              It does make him a liar when he states his opinion as fact. There’s a distinction. English is complicated, even for native speakers.

          4. “At least John B. Say is honest enough to admit that all the Hunter Biden claims are not criminal or illegal, just some of them are wrong.”

            But none of those of you on the left ever accept the same.

            BTW Joe Biden is a crook. Selling public office is a crime. Hunter Biden is NOT a government employee. He is free to sell whatever he wants – no matter how bad it stinks.

            I look at what was essentially a coup by those in CIA, DOJ, FBI during the Trump administration – and nearly everything they did was illegal.
            But I am hard pressed to find any of it that was actually a crime – without over broadening the law.

            There is a reason that Discussions about Hillary were regarding the espionage act – because though she violated numerous other federal laws – they were not criminal laws.

            We have the same thing with the 2020 election – election laws were violated right and left. But those laws are not criminal laws.

            Using powers that you have because you hold office for Benefit to yourself or other individuals is nearly always a crime.

        1. Laura, that article purporting to be “shocking” evidence is not shocking at all. This is about the corrupt Ukrainian Prosecutor Shokin being ousted. This is not new. In fact this involved not only Joe Biden, but also the state department, the White House, Congress, and even the European Union.

          This isn’’t some new evidence of a crime. This was literally sanctioned by the U.S. government helping Ukraine oust a corrupt prosecutor. This was a complicated international affairs issue.

          It’s been abused by right wing media to portray events as criminal when they were based on an international effort that was no real secret at the time. No wonder so many people thinks this is some sort of smoking gun evidence.  This is far beyond the understanding of those who ‘think” they understand what this is about. Nice try though.

      2. Nice construction. There might not be any evidence Joe offered the President’s office for sale. But evidence, aplenty that the sale was for the Vice President’s office.

        That nose of yours is way up Tara’s Reade-ing things Joes fingers did or not.

        1. “ There might not be any evidence Joe offered the President’s office for sale. But evidence, aplenty that the sale was for the Vice President’s office.”

          Those two statements are not mutually exclusive. They both mean the same thing. Nice try though.

          1. “Nice try though” is copycatted from other posters. Svelaz likes to use terms (and ideas) from other posters that impress him. He probably likes this phrase because it makes him feel superior.

      3. Svelaz – there is plenty of evidence. Your just blind to it.

        First lets completely put to bed the nonsense that Joe Biden was not involved in Hunter’s business dealings.

        We are way beyond that. Joe received Money as part of Hunter’s deals. That has been proven – but communications from and to hunter over years.
        Joe Biden met with the People Hunter arranged for him to meet with – at least 14 different people who were paying Hunter (and Joe).
        Further some of Hunter’s communications show that not only was Joe heavily involved – But the Obama Whitehouse was.

        This resembles Hillary’s pay for play scheme at the State department – except that the Biden’s did not launder the money through a charity.

        I would note that some of these business meetings were with Russians. Trump’s ties to actual Russians are a pop singer and a broker for a beauty pagent. Biden’s ties are to oligarchs and their henchmen.

        But the big money appears to have come from the chinese.
        And right now the US is selling oil from the strategic petroleum reserves to China brokered by Hunter Biden.
        At a moment when our relations with china are the most strained they have been since Mao, and the most dangerous ever.

        At this time we have a president who has been personally profiting off of deals with China, and who is using government power to redirect Federal Government assets to China at a moment when the US is critically short.

        Regardless, what exactly is it that you think the chinese, the russians, and myriads of other world players have been paying Hunter and Joe Biden for ?

        Advice on how to manage an oil company ?

        They are selling influence. This is WORSE than Paul Pelosi’s insider trading. This is selling the offices of the US government.

      4. You are correct that the Biden corruption is only slowly gaining the interest of the american people.

        Because Biden is incompetent and no one cares about prosecuting near vegetables.
        Because Biden’s presidency is a disaster – and there are oh so many more things to be upset with Biden about.
        Because until recently the press has had his back.

        But NOT because the allegations are not true or are not serious.

        Further, in the past I have said Biden will not last to the end of his first term.

        I still think that is probably true.

        But absent he will not be removed by either republicans or democrats.

        I suspect Biden will be impeached if Republicans take the house.
        But he will not be removed. Republicans want a weak and failed Biden as president in 2024.
        And Democrats do not want Harris, as that would be even worse.

        If Biden fails to make it to 2024 – that will be because he strokes out, dies or can no longer read a telepromter.

        Regardless, you have made your bed, now you must lie in it.

      5. “Nobody cares about this alleged “scandal” or “corruption””

        That is true the left only cares about the flimsiest claims against republicans.
        Not beyond a reasonable doubt corruption by democrats.

      1. “ Tell you what, YOU lie on a Form 4473 and see what happens”

        Nothing will happen. You can thank the NRA for that. Since the NRA has lobbied for the minimal funding of the ATF they don’t have the resources to scrutinize every form the is submitted.

        That is why Hunter Biden was not prosecuted for that offense and the stature of limitations on that expired a long time ago. A lot of people ‘lie” or “omit” certain information on those forms; It’s not until something serious occurs and the ATF is fully focusing on an individual that they scrutinize everything that is written on that form.

        1. You are so full of it . I did some work in North carolina and the boss man on the crew was from south carolina . His brother a convicted meth maker got drunk and tried to buy a gun at a pawn shop. Filled out the 4473 and they could not get a determination via nics. He was planning on picking his gun up at the end of the 3 day window and the ATF scooped him up as a felon attempting to buy and his brother served out his time on the shelf. The ATF watches more than you would admit. It’s what big brother does…. their targets are selected for opportunity and publicity. Imagine that.

          1. phergus: be careful if you mess with Svelaz. His intelligence is frightening. That’s why he likes to use pseudo-technical terms like “stature(sic) of limitations.”

      2. Point taken.

        As I noted there are lots of criminal activities that Hunter Biden is involved with – but all of those are really just consequences of being a reckless hedonist drowning in too much corruptly obtained money.

        But the CORE to all of this is that Hunter Biden is acting as a broker for Joe Biden to sell out his office.

        The really serious crime is and has always been Joe Biden’s.

  14. Sadly we will see again that Democrats DON’T pay for their crimes. What prison did Lois Lehrner go to? What trial did McCabe face? When does Sussman get out of jail? How did we like the Eric Holder trial? When a Republican takes envelopes of cash as a sitting VP he resigns in disgrace (RIGHTFULLY). when a sitting VP takes MILLIONS from OUR ENEMIES he becomes president. Democrats never pay, Republican always pay.

    The difference between the old Soviets and today’s America is that the communists put their foot on the throats of the media with threats of imprisonment and the Democrats don’t have to threaten the media in America and in fact maybe the media threatens the Democrats.

    1. “ What prison did Lois Lehrner go to? What trial did McCabe face? When does Sussman get out of jail?”

      Lehrner invoked her 5th amendment right during the hearings. She couldn’t be prosecuted because she didn’t have to answer questions at the hearing. Just as many Trump staff have done.

      “ DOJ lawyers determined that Lerner “did not waive her Fifth Amendment right by making an opening statement on May 22, 2013, because she made only general claims of innocence. Given that assessment, we have further concluded that it is not appropriate for a United States attorney to present the matter to the grand jury for action where, as here, the Constitution prevents the witness from being prosecuted for contempt.”

      Flynn and Stone have invoked the fifth multiple times.

      Andrew McCabe couldn’t be charged because Trump was constantly attacking him and insinuating he was a criminal when evidence didn’t support that. He was fired in retaliation just before his retirement and lost his pension. Last year that was reversed. He got his full pension back plus his record was corrected to what it should have been.

      Sussman prevailed because Durham never had evidence to prove his accusations and his incompetence didn’t help either.

  15. Hunter allegedly successfully sold influence with his father, Joe Biden, as a sitting Vice President to our adversaries and other foreign nationals. Without Joe Biden, Hunter had nothing to sell.

    I believe Joe Biden was an active participant, but I have grave doubts that he will ever face justice. Hunter will take the fall, and the major player will not have consequences. This will be used for Joe to bow out of running again, to the great relief of millions of Democrats who inexplicably think they will get a different result with someone else with a D in front of their name. These calamities are not actually Joe’s fault. He’s not running anything. He can barely read the Teleprompter.

  16. We must not think that this scandal is only about a sleazy politician and his family getting rich. The payment of money by Ukraine and China may had a real effect on foreign policy. For example, Ukraine is now fighting a Russian invasion and we are supplying almost unlimited military aid. Did Biden’s involvement in that country cause concern in Russia? And did the acceptance of money from Ukraine increase the likelihood that we would send them unlimited military aid? Second, the COVID pandemic. When Pres. Trump limited travel from China in early 2020, Biden denounced Trump as a racist. He also showed little interest in the origin of the virus. Third, China may just now be on the cusp of starting WW III in order to conquer Taiwan. Does the CCP feel emboldened because they “bought” the Biden family? Fourth, the threat of China to our global position, When Biden was campaigning for the nomination in 2019, he found the idea of the China threat to be silly: “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man.” It is natural to feel gratitude to someone who has given you money. That gratitude may be showing in the actions of Joseph R. Biden. Of course, his mental and physical incompetence complicate these situations even further. If the Russia-Ukraine war, or the China-Taiwan war, actually lead to a nuclear war, and that is not far-fetched, let us all remember before the end to thank the people who brought us Joe Biden.
