The Patriot Post® · The Biden Profiteering Scandal the MSM Is Ignoring

By Thomas Gallatin ·

Seemingly the only major media company digging into and uncovering the scandal surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop is the New York Post. The investigative journalist who has done most of the digging is Miranda Devine, and she has a forthcoming book detailing her findings regarding the Biden family’s corrupt business dealings with China titled Laptop from Hell.

For one thing, Devine pulls back the curtain on Hunter Biden’s work to peddle his family connection to Joe Biden to the tune of millions of dollars from China’s massive state-connected energy conglomerate CEFC, one of the world’s largest energy companies.

The rest of the mainstream media has essentially ignored the brewing and significant scandal surrounding Hunter’s laptop — and by extension Joe’s corruption. First, the media sowed doubt about whether it was actually Hunter’s laptop by continuing to call it “unconfirmed.” Then, once it was confirmed by the FBI, journalists avoided digging into the laptop’s contents by claiming the whole thing was “unsubstantiated.” Now that the laptop’s contents have been substantiated, the media is simply acting as if the damning contents are no big deal.

As the New York Post editorial board observes: “Liberal media outlets are uniquely incurious about Hunter selling the influence of his father. In the case of the Chinese deal, outlined by Devine, they say there’s ‘no indication’ that Joe Biden ever received the ‘10 percent for the big guy’ promised in one e-mail.”

But despite the lack of MSM coverage, or the Leftmedia outright arguing otherwise, this is a massive scandal with huge implications regarding just how much influence over Joe Biden Beijing has bought.

What Devine has uncovered and pieced together, both from the contents of Hunter’s laptop and his former business partner Tony Bobulinski, is how Beijing schemed to use a willing Hunter Biden to procure influence from Joe Biden in order to further Xi Jinping’s ambition to secure greater global influence via his Belt and Road Initiative.

In brief, the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC paid Hunter some $30 million over a three-year period beginning in 2017 to secure access to the former vice president in order to gain Beijing greater influence over the global energy market.

The contents of Hunter’s laptop provide details regarding a 2017 meeting in Miami between him and CEFC chairman Ye Jianming, as well as Hunter’s business associates, British ex-SAS officer James Gilliar and longtime Biden family friend and former Clinton administration official Rob Walker. Prior to the scheduled private dinner meeting between Hunter and Ye, the CEFC chairman gifted Hunter with a 3.16-carat diamond valued at $80,000. Pictures of the diamond and its valuation are found on Hunter’s laptop. Hunter claimed the gift was unexpected and that the scheduled meeting the next day — a meeting he subsequently missed — had to do with him seeking to secure a donation for the World Food Program USA, where he happens to sit on the board.

At this point, the only questions needing to be answered are not whether Joe Biden was involved — it’s clear that “the big guy” was indeed involved — but how Biden used his influence to help Beijing further its ambitions. “At the very least,” the Post editorial board notes, “the Chinese were paying the vice president’s son for government access. But it also now seems that the Chinese were paying Joe Biden millions through his son.”
