There is a saying in business that if it wasn’t written down, it never happened.
Apparently, for President Joe Biden, it never happened, even if it was written down.
In 2017, via the popular texting platform WhatsApp, Hunter Biden decided it would be both wise and fun to threaten Chinese business associate Henry Zhao via text message.
“I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter Biden told the director of Harvest Fund Management, a Chinese asset management firm. IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley. “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.”
He went on to state that both he and his father would make sure that Zhao would regret “not following my direction.” Within days of this message, over $5 million dollars was sent to a Biden-linked bank account.
The WhatsApp message was shared by an IRS whistleblower before the House Ways and Means Committee on June 22, and to those with eyes and a brain, clearly implicates, in Hunter’s own written words, that Biden was not only present but an active participant in the “business” dealings.
Biden is living in denial and still thinks Americans believe that he is blameless, despite mounting evidence, including photographs, that implicate him in criminal corruption schemes using his political influence.
After the message was revealed, Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked Biden, “Did you lie about never speaking with Hunter about his business deals?”
Biden firmly replied, “No.”
And that is that, move on, nothing to see here. Or, as Biden likes to say, “There is no ‘there’ there.”
Except that there is a lot of ‘there’ there, and it’s getting to the point that even the mainstream media has been forced to acknowledge it.
Recently, ABC, NBC, and CBS did the unthinkable: they took precious airtime away from former president Trump’s coverage and launched stories covering Biden’s corruption. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre seemed overwhelmed when her former allies, the mainstream news media, turned on her with tough questions.
True to form, Jean-Pierre continues to do what she does best: dodge, deny, and deflect. But it’s getting harder for her to avoid the questions, especially when asked by the media outlets that used to live in her back pocket.
And while she dodges questions like a ballerina in combat boots, the media frenzy is closing in on her. At a recent press conference, she was bailed out by Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby, who quickly knew he was up against an unprecedented, targeted attack by those once considered allies and bowed back out gracefully. A 2022 Rasmussen poll tells a different story.
Biden seems to believe that if he says no often enough, it will convince Americans that he is blameless, but a year-old Rasmussen poll results tell a different story.
Even back in July of 2022, before all the evidence began mounting up, 69% of Americans believed that he knew about his son’s business dealings despite his denial of any knowledge of his son’s activities. Only 22% believed that he was truly unaware. Additionally, 62% believed Biden profited from those dealings.
Those results were nearly a year before the evidence began to emerge and the depth of corruption in the U.S. government was revealed.
While news about the Biden corruption scandal is constantly hidden under other, more “important” and well-timed events, it is slowly clawing its way to the surface. And when it fully emerges, Biden will no longer be able to hide behind his veil of denial.
Lyin’ Biden can keep denyin’, but the public isn’t buyin’.
