China’s Stunning Buyout of the Bidens
According to a new book, Communist Chinese intelligence officials have paid some $31 million to Joe Biden and his family.
“It now involves very public, very emphatic lies,” wrote the author, a former cabinet secretary. “Breaches of trust. The subversion of truth. The possibility of criminal wrongdoing. And so we face the identical question today that we faced a generation ago: Is this president — is any president — above the law?”
The author concluded that there’s a time and a place for anger: “Even during times of comfort and ease, there is an appropriate moment for anger at the proper things, and with the proper person. In our time, the thing is corruption, the person is the president. These are not pleasant matters, but they are supremely important ones.”
He wasn’t talking about Joe Biden, though. The author, William Bennett, was talking about Bill Clinton in the midst of the Monica Lewinsky affair more that two decades ago. The title of his book? The Death of Outrage.
Outrage does seem to have died these days — at least among those who most ought to feel it. How might we conservatives feel if our president, the standard-bearer of our party, was found to have received some $31 million from our foremost geopolitical foe and the greatest threat we face to the American way of life? Because that’s apparently what Joe Biden and his family have received in recent years from the Communist Chinese — and they’ve received it, as author Peter Schweizer says, “from individuals who are linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence” and “for no apparent legitimate business activities.”
Schweizer, an investigative journalist notable for his book Clinton Cash, made the charge during an interview Sunday on Fox News’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” show, and he’s provided additional details in his new book, Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.
“There’s no question in my mind,” Schweizer says, “that [the Bidens] were targeted by the Chinese, and for the life of me, this is unprecedented. I don’t know of a time in American history where the American first family has had this kind of a financial bond with a foreign intelligence service, particularly a foreign intelligence service that wants to defeat the United States in global competition.”
Not surprisingly, Biden’s wastrel son, Hunter, is at the center of it all. Schweizer’s information reportedly comes from emails gleaned from the infamous Hunter Biden laptop. You know, the one he abandoned at a repair shop in Delaware; the one whose contents were, according to all those lousy deep-state Democrat intelligence hacks and their fellow-travelers at Politico, a product of “Russian disinformation.”
In one of Hunter’s emails, in which he’s referring to a wealthy Chinese businessman whose key contact was the Chinese Communist Party’s vice minister for state security, he writes, “I don’t believe in the lottery anymore, but I believe in the Superchairman.”
So far as we can tell, there’s been no rebuttal from Joe Biden or his defenders to these very serious charges of influence peddling. So, again, where’s the outrage?
If, as expected, Republicans retake the House of Representatives in November’s midterm elections, it would seem that Joe Biden and his dealings with the Communist Chinese are due for some serious congressional oversight. The Constitution, after all, considers bribery to be among the “high crimes and misdemeanors” of impeachable offenses.
Or is only Donald Trump impeachable these days?
