Hunter Biden, the Invisible Government and the Laptop from Hell
In 1912, President Theodore Roosevelt warned: "Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, is the first task of the statesmanship of the day."
This nearly 100-year-old warning is apropos as one considers the revelations of corruption oozing out of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop that was discovered and turned over years ago to law enforcement by a Delaware repair shop.
In the October 22, 2020, presidential debate, President Donald Trump confronted former Vice President Joe Biden about corrupt Biden family foreign business dealings to the moderator: "If this stuff is true about Russia, Ukraine, China, other countries, then he's a corrupt politician ... It's the laptop from hell."
Trump was referring to a laptop replete with criminal evidence that was nevertheless successfully discredited by Joe Biden, the Intelligence Community and the media as "Russian disinformation." Joe Biden's response in the debate: "There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what this, he's accusing me of is a Russian plan."
Years later, the mainstream media has just grudgingly acknowledged the laptop and its contents reflect a plan, but not a Russian one. Two recent guests on my Armstrong Williams Show -- former Attorney General William Barr and the retired CIA Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism Unit Chief Charles Faddis -- took issue with the lies told to suppress the important revelations on the laptop that would have otherwise derailed Joe Biden's path to the presidency.
I asked Barr: "Was it a Russian plot," as Biden claimed?
Barr asserted that Biden "knew it was false when he said it and that was quite appalling to me that he would say that in a debate. The media was onboard with suppressing the information before the election."
Faddis, who has possessed and studied the laptop for over a year, answered the second question -- whether foreign powers purchased the Oval Office through Hunter Biden -- less diplomatically: "Hunter is the bagman for a family enterprise."
These are just a few of the facts.
Joe Biden was the Obama administration's point man in Ukraine. His son Hunter Biden, at the time a self-confessed crack addict, monetized the vice president's role by receiving millions of dollars in payments from Ukrainian oligarchs -- plural -- although not all of those oligarch clients have to date been revealed. Yet unquantified millions flowed to Hunter Biden and the president's brother, James Biden. With neither man possessing any discernible skills or relevant experience, what did these Bidens have to sell? All Hunter and his Uncle Jim had to offer for these millions was Joe Biden.
