Hunter Biden never fails to catch a break, from the White House or the elite media

Boy, does Hunter Biden get a ton of breaks. The White House has basically given up on setting any ethical rules for the First Son, while the cultural elite rush to cover for his sleaze.

Last week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to commit to “basic transparency” about Hunter’s divestment from an investment fund owned by a Chinese-state entity during a White House Press Briefing. She also refused to admit his infamous laptop is authentic.

“The president’s son is not an employee of the federal government, so I’d point you to his representatives,” Psaki snarked after being asked about the China connection. She used the same lame excuse back in February: “He’s a private citizen — I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update.”

And never mind that President Joe Biden pledged last December that no family member would have a conflict of interest in his administration: “My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” he told CNN.

RANT: Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers; Biden has earned the scorn of the electorate

PIERS MORGAN: President Biden’s shameful move to muzzle the US media is a cynical and desperate Kim Jong-un style attempt to hide the fact that his presidency is turning into a total disaster

It’s the kind of thing that regularly happens in Russia, China or North Korea.

When journalists stray too far above their totalitarian-controlled station and dare to hold their political leaders to any form of proper account, they get a visit or phone call from shady Government officials.

*** and ***

I wonder what it could have been that suddenly turned the media so negative against the President?

Oh wait, I remember.

  • August was when the cowardly leader of the free world threw millions of Afghanistan women to the Taliban wolves with his shocking sudden withdrawal of US troops, betraying American allies and costing many lives.
  • Then he authorized a disastrous botched drone strike on a terror suspect in Kabul that killed an innocent family of 10 including women and children.
  • In September, fresh mayhem erupted on the Southern border due to catastrophic mixed messaging from the Biden administration and Americans watched in horror as US border patrol horsemen charged into Haitian migrants. The President shamefully blamed his guards for the chaos, not himself for causing it.
  • In October, Biden tried to criminalize American parents who protested against their kids being taught woke agenda subjects like Critical Race Theory by encouraging the National Schools Board Association to disgracefully brand them ‘domestic terrorists.’
  • Later that month, America ground to a virtual shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country.
  • This was a direct consequence of Biden’s reckless desire to behave like an all-year-round Santa Claus with his massive Covid-19 stimulus spending spree that sparked the inflation that provoked this crisis.
  • Prices surged, especially at the fuel pump, wages stagnated, and vast swathes of the American workforce quit their jobs because their President made it more economically beneficial for people to stay at home than go to work.

Yet far from the media giving Biden a tougher time than Trump over all this, as Milbank suggests, most of them went out of their way to defend him.

Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers.  Despite being on a different page politically than he is, here I think he is spot on.

As Bill Clinton always said “It’s the economy stupid”.  And Sleepy Old Joe has screwed the pooch on that one.

Single handedly, killing the Keystone pipeline and making US oil difficult to get out of the ground, he has take the US from net-exported to begging OPEC for help.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Piers has assembled a great list of the difficulties that Joe has put himself in.

RANT: Ebolaphobia is perfect for Gooferment purposes

OPINION
Ebola outbreak: Why Obama is allowing Ebolaphobia to spread
By Dr. Keith Ablow
Published October 09, 2014
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

Adults admit to anxiety about whether the illness could strike many more people here, and children have confided to me that they are terrified of Ebola. And what is being said is only the obvious part of the psychological virus (call it “Ebolophobia”) that is spreading; I would venture that millions of people are already unconsciously spending mental energy to suppress their worries that the disease could infect them or those they love.

Part of the preventive health strategy to help contain this psychological virus should be a reliable flow of information and bold policy from the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, already, their response lacks the necessary element of steady stewardship. And that’s because of President Obama’s continuing reticence to put America first.

Rahm’s rule: “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

It distracts the Sheeple and makes them think they need the Gooferment to “protect” them.

Argh!

If I was “King” like BHO44, then:

* Travel ban;

* Fire up the CDC for a daily national announcement;

* Fire up the FDA for an fast track plan for drugs;

* Put DoD on the Southern Border problem;

* Nuke the whole Homeland Security organization; and

* Put Biden in charge of the “Ebola” effort.

Mitt Romney’s tax returns reveal that the Republican presidential candidate does something fewer Americans do these days: He tithes.

Biden’s tax return shows charitable contributions under $400.

Obama’s better but not much

I don’t agree with Mitt on just about everything. In fact, I’m hard pressed to think of something I agree with him on.

But, in my mind, he’s ahead on “character”.

Rove Calls Biden ‘Liar’ After VP Boasts of Scolding Bush
Aides to former President George W. Bush are challenging the veracity of Vice President Joe Biden’s claim this week of having privately castigated Bush.

Republican strategist Karl Rove called Vice President Biden a “liar” on Thursday, dramatically escalating a feud between Biden and aides to former President George W. Bush over Biden’s claims to have rebuked Bush in private meetings.

“I hate to say this, but he’s a serial exaggerator,” Rove told FOX News. “If I was being unkind I would say liar. But it is a habit he ought to drop.”

The quality of the man is exposed. Again.

And Obama picked him. That goes to his credibility.

Seems time for him to have a “medical reason” to retire.

We can’t have a loose cannon “a heartbeat away” from the Presidency.

There’s a reason the DOWGs originally made the election’s runner up the VP. Now we see why.

Biden calls paying higher taxes a patriotic act
By DOUGLASS K. DANIEL, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 41 minutes ago

*** begin quote ***

WASHINGTON – Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans. In a new TV ad that repeats widely debunked claims about the Democratic tax plan, the Republican campaign calls Obama’s tax increases “painful.”

The thief robs you and then tells you that “giving” them more is patriotic?

Try idiotic!
