“Illusion of Influence”: The Media Moves the Goalpost Again on Biden Corruption Coverage

With the new disclosures in the Biden corruption scandal, the media has, again, pivoted to avoid acknowledging the obvious. It now has a new demand before it will fully recognize or report on the scandal. Of course, after long repeating denials of Joe Biden that he ever knew about his son’s foreign business deals, the media must now recognize that Hunter was selling influence and access. So they have added yet another task: show Joe Biden actually accepting money.

It is what in literature is called the “impossible task” demand like the Slavic tale of a Tsar ordering a suitor “to go there he does not know where” and to “get that he does not know what.”

A direct bribe given to Joe Biden in an envelope or a direct deposit is obviously not impossible. Call it the “highly improbable task,” After all, former Rep. William Jefferson was found with cold-hard cash in his freezer. However, among professional influence peddlers, a direct payment to the principal would be viewed as sacrilegious — enough for a lifetime ban from the major corruption league.

Jefferson was an amateur. The Bidens have been in the influence peddling business for decades and Hunter told his Chinese contacts that they are “the best” at what these foreign figures wanted from them.

Only a certifiable moron today would deposit any of the $20 million documented by the House committees in an actual account of Joe or Jill Biden. Those accounts are subject to continual monitoring and potential subpoenas.

Instead, the Congress has found dozens of shell companies and accounts used by the Bidens to help conceal the transfer of millions to Biden family members, including grandchildren. This includes references to bills of Joe Biden being paid out of joint accounts and benefits from deals that might include free offices. At the same time, these foreign sources sent direct money to the Biden Family Fund, a financial legacy that Joe Biden would leave in the form of millions of foreign contributions. At 80 with millions in wealth, Joe Biden is likely more motivated by moving wealth to his descendants than himself.

There were also alleged deliverables. Recently, Devon Archer confirmed that Hunter’s Ukrainian clients wanted the help of the Bidens in removing Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin. Biden would later insist on his being fired as a condition for a billion dollars in U.S. aid.

For years, the media insisted that there was no evidence of influence peddling or evidence contradicting the President. While most of these reporters required little to push false accounts of Russian collusion or Russian disinformation (including the dismissal of the Hunter Biden laptop), they are now demanding a virtual confession from the President or an actual deposit slip to his bank account.

When confronted with the transfer of millions and what Devon Archer now calls “categorically false” denials by the President, the media seems positively exasperated like the Queen in Alice in Wonderland. It is insisting that the public should not assume that the influence sold was influence realized. They just need to believe in the Bidens and the “illusion of influence.” When Alice says that she “cannot believe impossible things,” the Queen snaps back “I daresay you haven’t had much practice. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!”

The media has shown that it is possible to believe six impossible things to avoid the reality of the Biden scandal. Accordingly, the media now will accept that there was influence peddling but will treat it as “an illusion” until a direct payment is shown to President Biden himself rather than his family.

In this final demand, the media is relying entirely on the skill of the Bidens in hiding payments and avoiding such incriminating deposits. Biden himself has laughingly taunted reporters and asked “where’s the money?

When confronted on his calling Hunter and his business partners roughly 20 times, he and the White House have pointed out that he merely discussed the weather and pleasantries. The media has largely ignored that only a moron would conduct “business” on a speakerphone at a dinner at the popular Cafe Milano. The point of the calls was to prove the bona fides of Hunter selling influence and access to his father.

The Bidens have perfected what Uncle Earl Long said was the key to maintaining corruption:

“Don’t write anything you can phone.  Don’t phone anything you can talk.

Don’t talk anything you can whisper.  Don’t whisper anything you can smile.

Don’t smile anything you can nod.  Don’t nod anything you can wink.”


The true illusion was the Bidens in getting this scandal to disappear in front of millions. As I wrote years ago, the key to this Houdinesque trick was to get the media to invest in the deception like audience members called to the stage. The reporters have to back the illusion or admit that they were part of the deception. Even with millions funneled to the Biden family and acknowledgments that they were “selling the [Biden] brand,” it cannot be enough.

Even the use of a ridiculously complex array of two dozen entities to transfer money without any known purpose, it cannot be enough.

It is far easier to demand to see something no self-respecting Beltway bandit would commit: that after creating this labyrinth of shell companies and accounts, the Bidens went ahead and just did the equivalent to a Venmo payment directly to Joe and Jill Biden.  It may not be impossible but it is as improbable as Hunter Biden being an energy expert.

  1. “It is insisting that the public should not assume that the influence sold was influence realized. They just need to believe in the Bidens and the ‘illusion of influence.'”

    If the Bidens were not influence-peddling, what services were they selling? People don’t throw tens of millions of dollars at others for no reason. Certainly, the buyers believed they were buying influence. Even if Joe, in his contact with Hunter’s associates, never indicated he was selling influence, the contact itself demonstrated “access” and access certainly suggested “influence” to the buyers. (What good is the former without the latter?)

    This may have been intentional. The Bidens may never have intended to sell influence. They may have been running a scam on the buyers. But because the buyers thought they were buying influence, if they didn’t get what they had paid for, the Bidens would then be susceptible to blackmail. “We bought influence, and you did not deliver. If you don’t deliver, we will reveal your dealings with us.” So, even without actually selling influence, Joe Biden is compromised to the point that he must deliver influence, upon demand, for fear of having his dealings revealed by the disgruntled buyers of influence.

  2. Just amazing how Turley loves to point out what perceived infractions that he thinks are against conservatives, but on his blog, Turley blacks out any and all legal problems Trump is facing. Or spins the problems so fast it can make a head spin.

      1. Just thinking:
        As a trial lawyer, I have had to report unethical lawyers; and they were disbarred. I don’t understand why the lawyers indicting Trump are not being reported and DISBARRED!
        Why disbar them?
        1)Abuse of Process. 2)Election Interference. 3)Selective Prosecution. 4)Misapplication and Perversion of the Law. 5)Weaponization and Politicalization of the Department of Justice and the FBI.
        6)Violation of Constitutional Free Speech Rights. 7)And, Since Joe Biden says he’s a lawyer; I would start with him!

  3. 2 Obama Cabinet members sold their office?! Let’s not forget the Clinton Global Foundation! Obama must have known.

  4. If Biden was on tape saying “I will vote and operate on your behalf on any issue against the interests of America if you pay me and Hunter millions of dollars”, the demorats and the media would excuse it and say it’s really Trump’s fault. Disgusting people.

      1. They don’t Give-A-Damn about anything. I don’t think They’re ‘grounded’ , To them it’s Have or Have Not, We are untouchable, and they conduct everything with impunity. A share of Republicans to. It’s totally disconnected, It’s a Joke to them.

        4 more years of this and there won’t be anything, it will look like Maui, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

      2. Just can’t let it go.

        You want to know why They will not let Biden get indited and convicted for the things that he has done.
        It’s because they all do it. It is ‘systemic’ in the D.C. Political circles.

        If Biden goes down with a conviction, and as a result stronger Laws are written to quash influence peddling and and influence bribing, K-Street (et.al.) will be Out-of-Business.

        On one hand Biden’s conviction is the Key to Draining the Swamp. On the other hand if Biden is not-convicted, you just upped the ante for more Peddling & Bribes with Bigger amounts of Money..

        The recent Tucker Interviews with Devon Archer, Tucker said it, Washington D.C.’s business is “Selling Access” (Influence Peddling & Buying). t
        The reality is ‘The Players’ in the business are selling Shares of U.S. Budget Dollars.

          𝐀𝐥𝐥 𝐨𝐟 𝐖𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐭𝐨𝐧 𝐃.𝐂. 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐭.
          The Capitol [Washington D.C.] has become a Brokerage for Budget Dollars.
          Budgets that are Fiat Based. Which gives the Budget Value Infinitum [+/-].
          And by the same token it can make it Valueless by Deficit (Over Selling).

          Congress, Lobbyist, Strategic Advisors, et.al. … are Agents of the Brokerage, which Buy & Sell Your Tax Budget Shares, and take Their percentage ($-Cut) in the process. The President Does it, The Senators do it, The Congressmen do it, the Military does it. ….
          All Parties involved send Emissaries to do Their bidding for these $hares.

          Today’s Scam and Other schemes just put the mechanism on the surface for a short time.
          It ‘Was and Is’, business as usual in Washington D.C., and now the Brokerage acts with Impunity.

          The Well ran dry years ago.

          1. 100% correct. I practiced law in DC for 60 years. Saw it all. A well-oiled machine running on money—ours. The few that refuse to go along are “cancelled”. Has always been that way. Gaetz is correct. And that is no more “fascism” than what happened in 1776.

  5. In other news today a peer reviewed study of the Massachusetts schools found that school children did not and can not pass Covid to each other or to adults.

    This is not the first – nor the last study to find this. It is just another nail in the long list of studies p;roving that in every way the “experts” got it wrong – about the collusion delusion, about the Biden’s, about Trump, about Covid, about Climate.
    About pretty much everything.

  6. The best way to look at it is to see if the Bidens deny it. Hunter never denied that the laptop was his and now he won’t deny that he set up twenty shell companies to receive the millions in wire transfers. Why did he not just deny that the laptop was his and why does he not just deny that twenty shell companies exist? His answer to the laptop being his in an interview on CBS was “It might be mine and it might not be mine.” We should not be surprised that he is not denying the existence of the shell companies that have filtered the cash to his family members. One thing that he did admit was that he was paying half of his dad’s bills. First they asked us to believe Hunter and then when he says he’s paying half of Joe’s bills they say that we should not believe him. They keep the top spinning and try to make their supporters believe that it will never fall down. Thank you P.T. Barnum for telling us that a sucker is born everyday.

  7. EVEN IF Biden publicly admitted to everything that’s obvious if one follows the messaging and money, the media would just sputter back; “EVERYONE (in DC) DOES IT!”

  8. Weiss appointment

    So the prosecutor who botched the first investigation of HB, is then appointed by Garland to lead the second investigation.

    When you want something done poorly, choose the incompetent and corrupt.

      1. For all practical purposes the Dems via Garland have ended any prosecution of Hunter Biden or his Rico conspirators until after the election. After the election, win or lose, Biden will pardon all concerned and retire to his estates in Delaware. And any questions by Congress or any media not in cahoots with the Dems will be fobbed off with the excuse: “We cannot comment on ongoing investigations (giggle)” followed by an extended middle digit to the public.

  9. Only a Democrat or a member of THEIR media could look you in the face and say that there is no evidence of Joe Biden being on the take. In politics being shameless is a superpower.

  10. Attorney General Merrick B. Garland Appointment of Special Council 𝙐𝙎 𝘼𝙩𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙣𝙚𝙮 𝘿𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙙 𝙒𝙚𝙞𝙨𝙨 is no accident !

      1. Thanks Daren, I was testing ‘what works’ for posting Multiple URL Links that the User would understand
        [Link://] xyz._ _ _ Works
        and of course [Link] xyz._ _ _ works but does not convey the full http concept.

        1. Also keep in mind, if you were not already aware, that the website only allows two or less links per comment. By default the theme used here will change the color of the link to make it more visible than ordinary text, but it isn’t very obvious since it does not by default add an underline as is traditional with web pages. (of course individual browser settings can override this) You can also make it a bit more apparent by adding an Underline tag: <U>***</U> before and after the text .

  11. “show Joe Biden actually accepting money.”

    Not that this will budge the MSM, but: If the value goes to a family member, it is still bribery. If that family member then . . . Now you’ve got more crimes.

  12. Well, with “Plead ‘Em Out” Weiss being appointed Special Counsel by “No Chest” Garland in the glacial-paced Hunter Biden probe, I’m sure justice will come to the Biden Syndicate. Lol

  13. Why is asking questions considered a “ told through a rightwing media lens”? Media’s job is not to tell a story. It’s to ask questions as it tries to present “facts.”

  14. “Never mind that Trump’s claims were rejected by more than 60 courts. On this issue “

    Dumb! Don’t you check your facts out. Based on the cases that had merit. Trump won ~18 and the left won ~7. If after seeing this many times, don’t you bother to check out your work product?

    If you are wrong on that, you must be wrong on everything else.

  15. Any media outlet that has not been covering this story for YEARS does not deserve anyone’s trust.
    It is not the task of the media to hide things from us – but to follow the story WHEREVER it leads.
    The MSM has followed every tiny dust mite of a Trump story despite the fact they lead nowhere.

    That would be fine – if they did that ALWAYS. But they do not.

    Why did it take a year for the MSM to cover this ?
    The “story” of Biden Corruption dates back to 2015 – at the least.

    Outside of those with their heads in the sand it has been pretty obvious to the rest of us that there was more than enough to investigate for nearly a decade.

    Is the MSM covering this well ? Absolutely not. John Solomon has been on top of this story from before Biden was a candidate for president.

    There is no need for a “right wing lens” – just to get your head out from inside your a$$.

    The rest of us are RIGHTLY frustrated by the willful blindness of those of you on the left.

    But it is not your personal willful blindness that is so disturbing, it is your insistance that EVERYONE must be FORCED into YOUR blindness or YOUR views.

    We must ALL believe YOUR nonsense about Russian Collusion.
    We must all believe YOUR nonsense that Trump violated the law and constitution by seeking an investigation into the Biden syndicate before YOU we ready to accept that there might be some problems, yet it is perfectly acceptable for YOU to demand and get the prosecution of political enemies for acts that are not even crimes.

    Not only did you demand and get Trump’s impeachment for seeking to investigate what most of us recognized as likely corruption YEARS ago – but you DEMANDED that the story, the evidence be SILENCED by FORCE for years.

    Only because those “right wing groups” REFUSED to be silenced, and kept hammering away are you FINALLY prepared to accept that MAYBE there is some truth to this – and then ONLY if YOUR get to control the SPIN.

    Sorry – We are not interested.

    YOU have been WRONG.

    Wrong about the collusion delusion.
    Wrong about Masks,
    Wrong about shutdowns.
    Wrong about misconduct by the FBI
    Wrong about misconduct by the Clinton campaign
    Wrong about whether Shokin was corrupt
    Wrong about the Vaccine,
    Wrong about the Hunter Biden laptop.
    Wrong about political Censorship
    Wrong about GOVERNMENT Political censorship
    Pretty much WRONG about pretty much EVERYTHING.

    Further you have been STUPIDLY wrong.

    It did not take a brain surgeon to figure out in a few seconds that Putin was NOT going to favor Trump over Clinton.
    Putin may be evil, but he is NOT stupid.

    Finally you were WRONG about the 2020 election and Trump and the rest of us were RIGHT.

    The Election WAS STOLEN!!!

    It is possible even likely given what we know NOW that DVS voting machines did NOT rig the election.
    Though even that claim has NOT actually been PROVEN false.
    Regardless, if it is actually true that DVS voting machines did NOT throw the election to Biden – it is pretty much the ONLY claim of election Fraud that has proven false.

    Democrats engaged in MASSIVE ballot harvesting – which is illegal in every state except California.
    Democrats engaged in massive political censorship.
    Democrats engaged in conducting a lawless election.
    Democrats used the Federal Government to spread election propoganda and to censor the truth.

    These are ALL forms of ELECTION FRAUD.
    Most of them are illegal.

    ALL of them are IMMORAL.

    You Claim that now – finally – almost a decade after the facts, that left wing nut media is finally getting the story right ?

    We have a brain dead nut job as president who is F#$King up by the numbers to the harm of all of us and the world,
    because it has taken you almost a decade to grasp a PART of the Truth about Joe Biden.

    Is Joe Biden the personification of evil ? Absolutely not. But he is the perfect reflection of the “peter principle” – that someone can continuously FAIL UP. Joe Biden has been a liar and a petty crook his entire political career. That is not news to anyone but you and your ilk. He was never competent to hold ANY govenrment office – not dog catcher.
    While he is experiencing senility today – in FACT he has always been demented and stupid and incompetent.

    Because of His mistakes – and YOUR mistakes:
    This country is ACTUALLY less respected globally.
    We are ALL facing a greater threat of Global Nuclear war.
    We have a proxy War with Russia that NEVER should have happened – that with near certainty would not have happened under Trump.
    regardless, one of the CRYSTAL CLEAR changes between Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Biden and Trump is that each of the Former STARTED foreign wars and conflicts. Regardless of the rhetoric – and there have been times that democrats and the left paid atleast lip service to opposition to endless wars. Only Trump actually wound down foreign entanglements,
    Only Trump did not start some new reason for the US to wage global war – directly or indirectly.

    Washington warned us of getting sucked into Foreign entanglements. Truman warned us of the dangers of our intelligence services. Eisenhower warned us of the dangers of the military industrial complex.

    Do you think there were not powerful political interests pushing and benefiting from US foreign meddling – especially Military meddling ?

    The mess in Ukraine is YOUR fault.

    The mess in the economy is YOUR fault.

    We should have been in the midst of a strong post covid economic recovery.
    When trump left office in Jan 2021 Inflation was 1.4% and growth was 6%.
    in Jan 2023 Inflation was 6% and growth was 1.4%.

    Blackrock recently anounced they are pilling hundreds of billions from US markets – why ?
    Because interest rates are now 10% and will remain that high for years UNLESS we have a recession first.
    The FED has only managed to get inflation down to 4% and it has done that with high interest rates.
    But it has been trying to avoid triggering a recession – and has thus far succeeded – at the cost of a week economy and the certainty that inflation will explode the moment they lower interest rates.

    The economy sucks and it is not improving until we bight the bullet and force a recession to clear out the inflation cause by profligate government spending.

    And this is just the short version of the disaster Biden has been as president.


  16. Apples vs oranges pal. Yet we wouldn’t be in this predicament if….there wasn’t a deep state going along with it….with the monies… we are screwed. Currently our defense apparatus is being deployed for the mic. They use their tactics and techniques to hide it all….as classified. It ain’t. It’s the same trade craft civilian satellites are using . You come up with a code…you wait for the next satellite over to give them the cipher. Who knew? The question is who’s satellite? Who’s encryption ….who is playing along? Who who who? It’s so sad our govt is organized crime …And Wray does nothing but watch. Luckily others actually have the watch …despite you all.

  17. To address just one of your false statements: “Never mind that Trump’s claims were rejected by more than 60 courts.”

    Those courts didn’t reject “Trump’s claims.” Those were lawsuits brought by a variety of plaintiffs, almost all of the were not Trump and were not “Trump’s claims.” And those “60 courts” rejecte the vast preponderance of those CASES (not the claims) due to what’s called “lack of standing,” which has ZERO to do with the merits of the claims but only involves whether the plaintiffs had STANDING to sue.

    So while it’s neither my place or my desire to defend Turley, the FACT is that you’re spewing nonsense based upon little, if any, understanding of the law or the facts brought to those “more than 60 courts.”
