Bidens’ Corruption – “Lies, Sweet Little Lies”

Lies

Some remember Fleetwood Mac’s 1987 hit, “Little Lies.” Lyrics include “tell me lies, sweet little lies, tell me, tell me lies,” in one stanza, “I’ll settle for one day to believe in you, tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies.” Are we there again? National media – neatly divided – tell us lies, and too many want the lies.

The latest lie? Somehow, in the swirl of a world determined to stir just the right mix of misinformation – the right tilt to sell shows, podcasts, and digital papers – we learn that a major story spiked by the liberal media in 2020, was exactly right. More than right, it could well have swung the 2020 election.

What story? As one-time liberal television host Bill Maher noted this week, a story that we now refer to as the “Hunter Biden laptop” story. See, e.g., Bill Maher: The ‘left-wing media’ buried the Hunter Biden scandal because ‘it wasn’t part of their narrative’.

What is this? A salacious tale about a onetime vice-president, who is now president, and his “ne’er do well” son, borrowing Maher’s phrase. The story was neatly ignored by all but one or two conservative outlets in 2020, as facts – verifiable than, now tending toward potential indictment – carried a punch. See, e.g., The media avoided the ties between Joe Biden and Hunter’s laptop.

If true, facts found on a computer laptop presidential son Hunter Biden left with a repair shop, could have summarily ended Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. The laptop was apparently in law enforcement hands, and has now become the centerpiece of a serious, albeit slow-moving investigation.

Why is this laptop – and the story unfolding now – so important? Three reasons, and they should matter to all Americans. 

First, the “real evidence,” as lawyers call it, appears to be verified and points to criminal behavior by a presidential son, at a time when his father was vice president. If so, a reasonable expectation is that a grand jury is studying that evidence. See, e.g., Washington Post joins New York Times in finally admitting emails from Hunter Biden laptop are real;

Second, based on what is already known, the potential information trove is not just about the presidential son’s sexual predilections, offensive and potentially criminal behavior in that sphere. It goes beyond the idea that we have another presidential relative who wanders widely and wildly.

This is about the veracity – when all is said and done – of the vice president, now president, since much of the swirl around Hunter Biden has to do with Joe Biden seeming to clear the way for highly profitable deals that are highly questionable between his son and Communist China, Ukraine, and other places. See, e.g., Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad; The Washington Post Finally Gets Around to Confirming the Hunter Biden Laptop Story.

Put differently, there would be no prospect of a strangely wealthy, politically connected, arguably politically corrupt first son … without the hub of the wheel, Joe Biden. Compounding the mystery and seriousness of recent revelations, claims by the senior Biden to know nothing, are slowly eroding.

How could the senior Biden have known nothing of his son’s actions and collections in China and Ukraine, when he facilitated the son’s activities, travels, and perhaps became a beneficiary? How could the sitting president not have known what his son was doing, in view of what is known of the laptop? 

Other questions swirl, and are so far unanswered but worth asking. When did the FBI come into possession of this laptop, verify it, and know what it contained? Why did that not become public faster, that is – in 2020 when it might have swung centrist voters away from Biden?

When did the major media know – and they chose willful ignorance, why? If the laptop is a reservoir of information tied to foreign engagements if they necessarily implicate the former vice president, are there other issues at work? Are there national security concerns that have yet to see the light of day?

Third, perhaps most important, this issue should now concern all Americans because it looks like it will get more serious, not less. As Bill Maher noted last week, in his own unique and incomparable way, what does this say about the integrity of major news outlets? 

The real issue raised by willful suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020, and lately the admission by major outlets that the facts are real, material, serious, and could have affected the 2020 election – could now affect the sitting president and his family – is why we’re known facts suppressed?

In truth, we know the answer. It is a powerful indictment – not criminal but public and scathing – of the integrity of today’s leading media organizations. Public trust in mass media is low to start, but this may be the “coup de grace,” a turning point in what people allow themselves to believe.

Maybe we are getting to a point where, instead of being content with media lies, we are increasingly concerned that the lies hurt. Fleetwood Mac’s number one hit “Little Lies,” imagines that some consolation attends the idea that you will “tell me lies, sweet little lies …” rather than truth. 

Sometimes, the “sweet little lies” we get from our favorite media become too much, intolerable, and no longer comforting, but fundamentally undermining trust in people and institutions on which the nation – and the nation’s future – depends. That looks like where we are headed. We will see.

A truth: “that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality.”This is what Americans understood about truth before the election of President Clinton, who befriended China and allowed his wife Hillary to begin changing our education systems. Hillary injected government control to influence and indoctrinate younger and younger children to look to the government to provide an existance for them, as long as they followed without question.Now the definition of truth has added options to facts: “a fact or belief that is accepted as true.”This definition was accepted by most people because ‘Faith’ would fall under truth. That’s the lie the left uses to blur their primary objective, Total Governmental Control!Faith is a personal truth. Faith is the armory for the individual, the link an individual accepts as their truth. These words should never be used together and truth should never be accepted without fact.Using the controlling concepts of misinformation and fear are not new tactics used by governments to control people. Bend the facts, change the understanding covering the facts or the meaning of the facts. NAZI Germany, Communist China and the Sovivet Union are three examples of governments that use misinformation and fear to maintain power. The same way elitist in America, who already have money, now want power over the American people to sell their version of the truth, without facts.Our forefathers already knew that governments are corrupted by power so, they collected the thirteen governments that were in the country and made them independent of a single government ruler by allowing them to govern their countries, states, separate from the collective government with protections for the individuals in the separate states, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. This is why the left lies about their objectives in trying to change these ruling documents and their drive for total power. After all, they know what is good for you and the collective, you don’t!Keep in mind that no American representation party is innocent when comes to misinformation. There are people in all parties who think the Federal Government should be in total control. That mindset has to be changed. The first step in changing that mindset is to vote in new represenatives in every state who will vote for parental control of education by state, term limits for every elected representative and shifting the management for any welfare from the government back to each state so the money collected by the government for schools, welfare, other than Social Security and Medicare, is managed locally not in a federal bucket where the money is being used to grow bigger government, like illegal immigration and selling American property (land) to foreign nationals, instead of protecting American rights and property.Talk to everyone about voting in November and voter ID. Stop illegal mail-in ballots with out vetted requests for mail-in ballots. There were nurses in nursing homes filling out ballots for elderly Americans and mailing them as well as collecting ballots in areas where address were the only vetting used to allow a person to vote, so thousands of illegals voted with false ID, by address. These situations are fact, not misinformation.The Hunter Biden criminal activity is a cover up of Joe Biden’s corruption and as long as the left is controlling the federal government there won’t be any prosecution, little lies can hurt! Vote in November!

Unfortunately you are 100% correct. Much like with Hillary and her crimes, absolutely nothing will become of this and there will be no repercussions. It might even end up helping them by playing the victim and the MSM and dims buying into it.

Given the publicity which the subject has been given, the implications to national which ties with communist and formerly communist countries would have, security must have, logically, been a consideration, despite the 30 years since the end of the “Cold War.” The expectation is that the amount of “quid pro quo” that goes on between members of the business, diplomatic, intelligence and military communities of all countries would surprise the average citizen. As to how much of it is in violation of the law, in the age of globalism, what laws, actually, govern the actions of people, anyway?
Corruption is prevalent, so it is likely that purpose, with respect to relationships, would be, at least, a tacit consideration, the idea of advantage being abandoned for mutual security by cooperation.

President Biden has NOT told the truth to the American people in over 40 years.
But he kept being voted into office because the people are gullible. And that is
what the politicians bank on. The Dems win.

Mr. Charles, I really enjoyed this article. Thank You.
It’s truly shocking that too many politicians lie without remorse,regret or shame and actually expect intelligent people to believe them.

“Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.”
Comes to mind , along with My Father saying ” nothing is lower or less redeeming than an unrepentant liar”.

All representatives may need to practice honesty and morality for a change.

Joe Biden knows all of his son’s business dealings with China and Russia. Remember when Eric Trump had to dissolve his Charity for St. Jude. What a contrast between Presidents’ sons! Biden is the most comprised president in history. And we are all his victims because of it.

So the media and Democrats in Congress spread Russia lies about President Trump throughout his entire presidency and the MSM ate it up. What a bunch of soulless fools!

Yes, as Levin said on his latest segment of Life Liberty and Levin. “We need a special council to investigate the Bidens.” We also need a special council to investigate the Clintons, Obamas, Pelosis, McConnells, and many more of our corrupt government. We need to clean DC top to bottom. They do not care about this country or any of it’s citizens. They only care about their bank accounts, powers, and control. We Americans need to call it like it is and stand up to all of the issues that face us.

That’s why we the Americans are going crazy because of all this. I am sure that many Americans are loosing some of their investments because of bad leaders and bad managements in our country.
We were doing very well during President Trump’s days and now look at this. It’s worse than Obama’s days although Obama wasn’t much better either. Something should be done about this or we won’t have a country at all like President Trump said.

In a previous life, Joe Biden was a mountain lion. Joe the lion was not a good hunter and often went hungry. Once, Joe was successful and killed a bull. He was so hungry that Joe ate the entire bull at one sitting. He was so happy that he roared and roared. A hunter heard Joe the Lion and stalked within rifle range and shot Joe Biden the Mountain Lion.

Moral of the story? Joe, when you are full of bull, keep your mouth shut!

It is obvious that when Joe Biden was a mountain lion, he did not learn his lesson! Still shooting off his mouth! Now, we need a real “Hunter” to come along…

The ethics of the mainstream media are the ethics of revolution. Everything out of the mouths of lenin, mao and castro furthered their movements. Conservatives tend to see truth as standing alone, as objective and immutable. Solzenitsyn has stalin say that ‘language is a tool of production’ in one of his novels. For our lefties truth is maleable, to be forged, bent or twisted to meet the needs of the moment. In 2020 that need was to get rid of trump, by any means necessary.
