The dam is breaking. The prohibition on discussing Hunter Biden’s corruption and ties to dictators around the world is vanishing. Every day there are new stories detailing the incredible amounts of money he has taken from the dictators and thugs of the world.
Still, even as they begin to finally talk about this massive scandal, news media outlets avoid directly confronting the elephant in the room. Hunter was merely the bag man. He was selling access to his father and large portions of the proceeds from this influence-peddling operation appear to have been going to Dad.
What did the buyers get for their money? How much of his soul did Joe Biden sell to the Ukrainians, the Russians, and most importantly the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?
Do we have a man in the White House who is owned by Xi Jinping?
The answer is, unfortunately, almost certainly, yes.
The implications of that fact are staggering. As a nation, we are generally aware that the performance of the national security team in Biden’s administration has been dismal. The withdrawal from Afghanistan was a disaster. The Ukraine situation is spiraling out of control. The Chinese are making increasingly direct threats against Taiwan. The Iranians and their proxies in the Middle East are once again launching missile attacks not just on our allies but on our forces as well.
The American response to this has been incompetent at best. What if it is more than that? What if our analysis, predicated on the belief that all we are seeing is incompetence is faulty? What if the man who is supposed to be working to protect American lives is playing for the other team?
In 2013 Joe Biden was Vice-President of the United States. In that capacity, he was the point man for Barack Obama in Asia. As such, Biden’s number one job was to push back on Chinese aggression. In particular, he was charged with stopping the Chinese from continuing their aggressive island-building campaign in the South China Sea.
Biden flew to Beijing for high-level talks with the Chinese leadership. With him, on Air Force Two was Hunter Biden. Joe went to meetings with CCP leadership. Hunter went to meetings with representatives of the State Bank of China who gave him $1 billion. They later upped the amount to $1.5 billion.
Hunter and Joe got back on Air Force Two and flew home. Joe did nothing to stop the Chinese in the South China Sea. The CCP proceeded without interference with its construction of fortified artificial islands in one of the world’s most strategic waterways.
In 2016 Hunter was employed by Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company. His duties appeared to consist of providing top cover for the company in Washington. The leadership of Burisma was under investigation by the Ukrainian government for corruption.
Joe got on Air Force Two. He flew to Ukraine. He demanded that the Ukrainians fire the prosecutor investigating the company that employed his son. He threatened to withhold $1 billion in American aid to Ukraine if Kyiv did not knuckle under.
The Ukrainians caved. The prosecutor was fired. Joe flew home and then openly bragged about what he had done in an interview on camera.
These are just two of the best-known examples of what appear to be actions taken by Joe Biden at the behest of foreign actors who were funneling large sums of money into his worldwide influence-peddling operation. All of this is made infinitely worse by the continuing flow of information suggesting that at least in the case of China, many of the individuals with whom Hunter was in contact were known intelligence operatives.
It is long past time for the American people and for American counterintelligence agencies to face the facts regarding Biden’s compromise and to consider their implications. For the first time in our history, we are in a situation where we may well be dealing with a President who is compromised by a foreign power and acting at its behest. As we attempt to steer a course through increasingly dangerous waters, the possible ramifications are staggering.
We have taken for granted that the man in the White House is acting as he thinks best to protect the American people. We have assumed that in the worst case we were faced with a man who was weak, infirm, and incompetent.
What if the scope of the danger we face is infinitely greater? What if what we are seeing is not incompetence but malfeasance? We have believed up to now that the Manchurian Candidate, a book about a politician brainwashed by the Communists and then run as a candidate for President, is just fiction.
What if it is not? What if it is as predictive as 1984 has proven to be? What if Joe Biden is the Manchurian President?
