Being a child of a President has always been hard I would imagine, however, Hunter Biden has taken his role as a politician’s son to some really rough roads. Of course, each and every one of them is by his own making and choice but damn, this guy has just hit a bad stretch.
You might remember that Hunter has been around and has made messes wherever he has gone. My colleague Bonchie has a feeling that all the stuff Hunter has tripped into is leading to something big. Here is part of what he wrote last week Something Big Is Coming on Hunter Biden’s Corrupt Dealings…
In October of 2020, a bombshell report detailing possibly incriminating emails (and generally degenerate behavior) from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden dropped. That report, originally published and expanded on by The New York Post, was relentlessly censored by social media companies and maligned as “Russian disinformation” by the mainstream media and the Biden campaign.
That didn’t stop right-leaning media from digging deeper, and the revelations were stunning, including Hunter Biden making $80,000 a month from a Ukrainian oil company and receiving a $2 million “retainer” to sell influence to the Libyan government. His dealings with China were also extensive and at the very least, seemed to cross into the realm of criminal FARA violations. To this day, Hunter Biden has yet to fully divest from his partial stake in a Chinese-controlled venture capital firm.
Still, all of that has been known for a long time, yet the media’s response has been to completely ignore it while the Biden administration has continued to lie about the origins of the emails. That was, until the last few weeks.
Suddenly, for no reason whatsoever I’m assured, the liberal news industry, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, decided to “confirm” all the reporting we already knew was true. Further, the Post’s write-up goes so far as to detail some of Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings, specifically regarding the Chinese. That’s quite the about-face.
That all leads to this new story.
While we are waiting for other shoes to drop in the Hunter saga, the United States taxpayer is protecting him at a cost of close to $30,000 a month for Secret Service lodging. All members of any President’s family are extended this courtesy but living in Malibu with a magnificent view of the Pacific might be taking this courtesy a bit too far.
According to the New York Post…
Taxpayers are shelling out more than $30,000 a month so the Secret Service can rent an estate in the upscale celebrity enclave of Malibu to protect Hunter Biden, who is living nearby in a “resort-style” home with “enchanting” panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, according to a new report on Monday.
A former Secret Service agent told ABC News the setup is the “cost of doing business” for the agency, since Hunter — like other presidential family members — is entitled to round-the-clock security.
“Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value,” retired agent Don Mihalek told the network, adding that the agency also rents properties at Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, as part of its duty to protect President Biden on his frequent weekend trips home.
Can’t President Biden and the first lady of the United States put Hunter and his family up somewhere in the family quarters of the White House? This would serve two common-sense purposes.
First off, it would keep Hunter and his brood under the roof of one of the most protected homes in the country. Secret Service protection, of course, is based in Washington DC and the greatest concentration of it is at the White House.
Second, it would allow Joe and Jill to keep an eye on Hunter and hopefully keep him from engaging in any more misadventures. I’m sure this is going to make a great movie or series on Netflix in the future, but the first family has enough going on each day with Joe just walking up to a podium and answering questions, let alone wondering what Hunter’s doing on the West Coast.
And I know this goes without saying, but I feel it still needs to be said.
Can you imagine what the response would be if one of Donald Trump’s children had done 25 percent of what Hunter is alleged to have done and was residing in a luxurious home with an awesome view of the Pacific Ocean in California and dropping almost 400K a year for a rental to protect them? Literally, everyone at CNN and MSNBC would have a meltdown and be in therapy.
Damn shame that didn’t happen.
