If you didn’t already believe systemic, institutional privilege and corruption exists, surely you do now. Or at least your growing, gnawing, nauseating sense that systemic, institutional privilege and corruption exists has been confirmed by the thoroughly corrupt Hunter Biden’s pinky tweak.
In a syrupy sweet plea deal, Hunter Biden—the Fredo Corleone of the Biden crime family—has agreed to plead guilty to two tax misdemeanors for failing to pay taxes in 2017 and 2018. The plea deal allows him to skate merrily away from even a country club prison sentence.
Equally offensive to anyone committed to social justice is the federal firearms charge for which he was going to be charged but won’t be if he completes a two-year diversionary probation. That’ll teach him a lesson he won’t soon forget.
And it should teach all Americans a lesson they ought not forget. It should teach Americans that the corrupt children of corrupt, powerful, privileged politicians rarely get their fair share of justice.
Our enemies—those with a penchant for bribery and influence-buying—have learned that lesson well.
Evidence hiding in plain sight suggests that the ignorant, inept, crooked, profligate, whoremongering crackhead Hunger—er, I mean Hunter Biden and crime boss Joe “Bananas” Biden peddled influence for buckets of ducats from the corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma Holdings. In late February 2014, Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. In April 2014 Hunter Biden, who had no knowledge of or experience in the oil industry was given a hefty sinecure with Burisma. Immediately after Hunter’s peculiar board appointment, his father—the Big Guy—was sent to Ukraine after which he publicly boasted that he used extortion to coerce the Ukrainian government into ceasing its investigation into Burisma corruption by firing lead investigator Victor Shokin.
Biden arrogantly bragged,
I said, nah, I’m not going to—or we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, “you have no authority. You’re not the president.” … I said, “call him.” I said, “I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.” I said, “you’re not getting the billion.” … I looked at them and said: “I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.
In addition to Hunter’s hefty monthly paycheck from Burisma for doing nothing, John Solomon exposed more about Hunter’s influence-peddling profits:
Ukrainian officials tell me there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member. U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia. The general prosecutor’s official file for the Burisma probe — shared with me by senior Ukrainian officials — shows prosecutors identified Hunter Biden, business partner Devon Archer and their firm, Rosemont Seneca, as potential recipients of money. Shokin told me in written answers to questions that, before he was fired as general prosecutor, he had made “specific plans” for the investigation that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”
Fast forward to last month, early May 2023, when Senator Chuck Grassley and U.S. Representative James Comer revealed that a “highly credible” informant used by the FBI for over a decade had provided information to the FBI about Joe Biden and his ne’er-do-well son taking bribes of millions of dollars from a Burisma executive when Joe Biden was vice president and his son sat on the Burisma board.
Just weeks later, Biden’s Department of “Justice” (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) indicted Biden’s current top opponent in the 2024 presidential race on 37 counts related to documents he removed from the White House—charges that the whole country knows would never have been leveled against Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, or any other former Democrat president. Not surprisingly, Americans responded furiously to yet another leftist scheme to interfere in an election and apply laws unfairly. Democrat bees swarmed back to the hive, frantically buzzing, “What to do? What to do? How do we convince Americans that despite the evidence they can spy with their little eyes that we apply justice fairly and squarely?” A month later, Hunter Biden’s pinky was tweaked. Don’t you dare accuse Democrats of unfairly applying the law! Look, they’ve tweaked Hunter’s pinky, and boy, oh, boy, does that smart!
Just look at his swollen pinky. It’s pink like an unripe red herring—but just as malodorous.
How anyone can take seriously Democrats who claim to be deeply committed to justice while making their living in the shriveled heart of jobbery, malfeasance, and systemic injustice.
