Hunter Is Not A Victim

Poor Hunter Biden! The First Son is trying to write his way out of his predicament yet seems to have accomplished nothing except to dig the hole deeper. Hunter is the author of an op-ed for the USA network of newspapers and every major city in Tennessee has a USA Today newspaper, including Knoxville. The thesis of Hunter’s op-ed is he that is a victim, along with his father. “My struggles and mistakes have been fodder for a vile and sustained disinformation campaign against my father, President Joe Biden, and an all-out annihilation of my reputation.” So far as I can tell, his reputation wasn’t that good before his father became president. Still, Bless its heart. Hunter refers to the ongoing congressional investigations as “high-pitched but fruitless,” even though they have uncovered far more evidence than the notorious Russia collusion hoax. Hunter acknowledged his addiction “consisted each day of a bottle of vodka and as many hits on a crack pipe as possible” and pointed to 20 million other Americans who suffer from “substance abuse disorder.”

Hunter makes a point to conclude his op-ed with the outright statement he is NOT a victim, and that he grew up with privilege and opportunity. Hunter was kicked out of the Navy for testing positive for cocaine; at least that was the story written by the Associated Press at the time. It does raise an even bigger question, which is why companies all across the world would shove millions of dollars into the hands and numerous bank accounts of a hopeless addict. The millions of dollars flowing into the Biden family bank accounts weren’t earned by a high-functioning young Yale-trained lawyer with great business skills. No indeed, it was going to a Yale-trained lawyer who was chugging down a bottle of vodka every day and taking as many hits from a crack pipe as possible.

The disinformation seems to be Hunter’s own. It raises more valid questions as to why any legitimate business would pay a low-functioning addict tens of millions of dollars.


Foreign Aid Abuse

It’s well past time the United States reevaluated our foreign aid program. A government watchdog has revealed Afghanistan, governed by the Taliban, is receiving aid from the U. S. and other countries amounting to $80 million every 10 – 14 days. The money, supposedly for humanitarian purposes, is apparently siphoned off by the Taliban through fake nonprofit groups and other means according to the watchdog. The Biden administration has allocated $2.5 billion for aid to Afghanistan since the disastrous withdrawal from that country, which left something like $80 billion of American-owned military equipment and materials, all of which fell into the hands of enemies of this country.

The wealth of the Hamas leaders, Khaled Mashaal and Ismail Haniyeh, is estimated to be $4 billion, while Mousa Abu Marzouk, head of the political bureau, is estimated to have a fortune of $3 billion. That hardly seems oppressed, nor do they live in the Gaza strip, preferring luxury hotels in Qatar. Where do you suppose that money came from? Gaza doesn’t pump out oil or have any industries of note. They’ve likely skimmed the cream and milk off the barrels of cash showered on Palestinians in the form of humanitarian aid. They live like kings while most of their people live in squalor.


Biden’s Islamic Support Purely Political

Foreign policy has never been Joe Biden’s strong suit. Following the slaughter of entire families in Israel, Biden announced his administration was working on a national strategy to counter Islamophobia. That pronouncement came one day after a new poll showed Arab-American support for Biden and Democrats was sinking like a stone. It also came one day after FBI Director Christopher Wray told the members of the Senate’s Homeland Security Committee that while Jewish people in this country account for only 2.4% of America’s population, Jewish Americans accounted for “something like 60% of all religious-based hate crimes.” But the problem in this country is Islamophobia. Really?


Release The Manifesto

Audrey Hale, the murderer in the Covenant School shootings in Nashville, left behind a manifesto in the bloody wake of her killing spree. That manifesto has been the source of much speculation and has been closely held by officials and not revealed to the public. Evidently, parts of the manifesto have leaked and is currently circulating throughout the internet. Hale, who identified as male, was motivated, at least in part, by a hatred of white people, even though she herself was white. The leaked pages indicate Hale deliberately set out to kill children, as well as stated her intent to murder “crackers” who enjoyed “white privilege.”

J.D. Vance, a U.S. senator from Ohio, said, “The anti-whiteness movement, mainstreamed by American universities and corporations, has blood on its hands.”


Liberal Politics Made The Obamas Wealthy

Barack Obama made a recent pronouncement concerning the Hamas–Israeli war, saying no side has clean hands. What is certain is that Obama’s hands are not clean at all, having fueled Iran, the main exporter of terrorism in the world, with billions of dollars. Those remarks came during a “reunion” celebrating Obama’s election in 2008. In 2016 Obama wrote, “It is important to remember that capitalism has been the greatest driver of prosperity and opportunity the world has ever seen.” The former president changed his tune to fit in with the cultural Marxism of his political party as he criticized market-based systems, which he said, “have been compatible with slavery, caste systems, colonialization, war, exploration, corruption, fraud, autocracy, the poisoning of our national environment.” Certainly, the free market has been very, very good to Michelle and Barack Obama, as their net worth has steadily climbed well into the tens of millions. One estimate by an analyst of the Obama net worth was around $245 million. The Obamas, like the former Prince Harry and his actress wife, clenched a deal with streaming giant Netflix to produce programs that have the entertainment value of a poke with a sharp stick. Had they been produced as a sleep aid, it would likely have been worth what they were paid.

The wealth generated by production deals and books has enabled the Obamas to live a very privileged lifestyle indeed with a magnificent mansion in Washington, D. C., and a lavish estate on exclusive Martha’s Vineyard.

Tlaib Censured Finally

Last week the U. S. House of Representatives finally voted to censure Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, the most rabid antisemite in Congress. Four Republicans voted against the censure resolution, while only 24 Democrats voted for it. The censure resolution was brought when Tlaib called for the eradication of Israel. Lately, Tlaib has accused Joe Biden of supporting “genocide” against Palestinians.


More Foreign Aid Abuse

It’s way past time someone calls out the facts about what is happening in Gaza. The people in Gaza voted in 2005 for a government run by Hamas. Since then, there haven’t been any further elections to my knowledge. Hamas has used the foreign aid sent by the United States and other countries not for the humanitarian purposes intended, but instead used it to build a network of tunnels running under hospitals, homes, and schools to shield themselves from retaliation for their terrorist acts and protect themselves.

No society can ignore the kind of inhuman slaughter inflicted by Hamas on the Israeli people. None of the antisemites mention the butchery of babies and families while accusing the Israelis of war crimes. The crimes are pretty easy to spot; how Hamas has treated its own Palestinian people; and the deliberate and systematic murder of civilians.

One little Leftist activist found out the hard way recently in Great Britain in a video that has since gone viral. The activist, “Billboard Chris,” approached several Muslim girls to get their support for medically transitioning children. One social media wag described the incident by writing “Billboard Chris” was shocked to discover the girls didn’t share his views on LGTBQ+ issues, which is putting it mildly. Who would have thought?
