Hypocrites and Incompetence
By Ethan Hay
Some of the best and greatest stories told, in both history and entertainment are those of redemption. Namely, stories of someone who has fallen, failed, or been controlled by some substance or person, but comes back better and stronger than before. Think of the fictional characters Boromir from the Lord of the Rings, (1) and Edmund from the Chronicles of Narnia. (2) Or the actual historical figure Abraham Lincoln, whose political career, prior to his election as President, was undistinguished and full of failures, yet he was the man who helped successfully lead America through the Civil War. (3)
Why mention redemption? Because the mainstream media is trying to paint Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, as someone who reached rock bottom and clawed his way back from the brink. Just look at the title of this review of his book ‘Beautiful Things,’ which was written by writer Beau Friedlander, and was posted on NBC. ‘Hunter Biden’s (4) book ‘Beautiful Things’ pairs a wrenching tale of grief with a trite addict’s diary.’ But guess how many of his books were actually sold in the first week when traditionally the sales are the highest? A little more than 10,000. (5) How did Hunter respond? He’s going to write a sequel. (6) What is the definition of insanity again?
Furthermore, redemption typically means doing something to atone for the mistakes of the past. Hunter has a hard time even acknowledging his past. Literally, he had to be ordered by a court to pay for legal expenses, and even now, he is only paying temporary support to the mother of his child. (7) He only did this after a DNA test (8) was conducted, and it was confirmed that the child was his. It gets better. His most recent scandal is that he used the N-word (9) in texts to his lawyer. Sadly, this is much more likely to get Hunter canceled. Much more so than the FBI investigation into his effort to hustle and finesse high ranking foreign officials, such as the ambassador for the United Arab Emirates, for money to help fund the Ukrainian oil company, Burisma, (10) of which he was a board member.
Then there is also his more than cozy relationship with China, including his business dealings with the ‘fucking spy chief of China.’ (11) There is also the FBI investigation (12) into his taxes, and potential money laundering violations. Yet the media would lead us to believe that this so-called ‘prodigal son,’ whose business dealings included using his father’s position as Vice President to get what he wanted. Not to mention that Hunter’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, has said that the ‘big guy’, meaning Former Vice President Joe Biden, (13) was heavily involved in his son’s business dealings. One must also consider that there is a very real possibility that this administration is nothing more than a puppet for the CCP. But remember, the adults are back.
One of these so-called adults is the esteemed border czar, and Vice President, Kamala Harris. She has been in Central America this last week. Her most recent trip to Guatemala, was not well received. Some of the people of Guatemala welcomed the Vice President with signs saying, ‘Trump Won.’ (14) While she was there, she told the people of Guatemala, with a message to the mass migration of people that is currently taking place, to ‘not come.’ The US Customs and Border Patrol (15) reports that, as of May 2021 nearly 1,069,597 people have come into the US. It looks to be on track to surpass the 2019 number of 1,148,024 people entering the US.
However, Vice President Harris has not even been to the border to assess the situation. When she was pressed by NBC Nightly News anchor, Lester Holt, about when she was going to the border, she responded by saying:
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border, we’ve been to the border. So, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border.”
To which she replied:
“And I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance (16) of the border.”
Her actions are speaking louder than her words. Even then, her words are not helping her case. Because she is showing herself to be unable to handle even the simplest of questions, such as when she was pressed by Univision reporter Ilia Calderon. (17) Misses Calderon asked for a specific date of when she will visit the border, and the Vice President said, “I will keep you posted.”
These two stories, which don’t seem connected, are brought up for two reasons. First, to highlight the hypocrisy of the far left when it comes to Hunter Biden. The media has largely ignored negative stories related to Hunter, but they were more than happy to create false narratives when it came to President Trump and his family. If it had been one of his three sons who had done even one of the things that Hunter had done, it would be plastered on every single news channel in the world. Second, to highlight the general incompetency of the Biden administration, which is exemplified by Vice President Harris, who signed a letter labeling the Trump border policy as racist.(18)
The President of Guatemala, Alejandro Giammattei, has placed the blame of the current influx of mass migration, (19) squarely at the feet of Former Vice President Biden, in particular the family reunification process. (20) Now they are trying to re-deploy the same policies as President Trump. It’s as if the policies worked. The American people, and the people of the world are seeing the political class for what they are, a largely self-centered group of individuals who are interested in only one thing: power and retention of it. Furthermore, they do not like it when they are challenged or held accountable. It is time for the people of the world to wake up, and hold these ilk accountable, at all the world, national, and local levels.
