How Hunter Biden struck lucky on his day in the dock

-

THE world’s attention has been focused on the submersible Titan’s ill-fated voyage to the bottom of the Atlantic. Almost perfectly suited to drive media clicks – with its combination of nightmare and mystery – it has crowded out much of what has been happening elsewhere.

Although scarcely covered by much of the mainstream media, on Tuesday Hunter Biden, the US president’s son, was in court. It has no doubt been of great convenience to those with little inclination to bring the Biden family’s dodgy dealings to attention that such a gripping story as the Titan dominated the headlines.

Otherwise surely Hunter Biden’s day in the dock would have received more coverage.

That ‘would’ is, of course, highly debatable. The world knows – perhaps even the remote tribes of Papua New Guinea have caught wind of it, given the relentless media coverage – that our former Prime Minister ate some cake when he shouldn’t have.

They may know, too, that Donald Trump is variously a Russian puppet, a sleaze and a madman in possession of classified documents, oh, and he fomented the Attack On The Capitol™.

Our media’s reporting has ensured that these ‘facts’ are the focus of our attention. Months can be spent debating the incident of a cake touching BoJo’s lips, holding a gullible public in thrall.

Anything concerning the incumbent president is, however, not so rapaciously reported. Why would you report negatively on your own side? For the media is, almost to a man, in lockstep with the establishment line.

Anyway, there’s not much to report on. Hunter Biden was merely found guilty on a couple of tax charges and a misdemeanour involving a gun. For a man with a predilection for crack cocaine, prostitutes and pornography (not to mention his vices), such an outing in court is regrettable but not entirely surprising.

It was a judicial slap on the wrist, particularly given the seriousness of the seemingly unanswered allegations. Namely that he took money from Chinese and Ukrainian sources for years while his father was America’s vice president, with insinuations that Biden Senior profited from these dealings. Recent analysis has shown that Hunter was at his father’s house while he sent aggressive messages to a Chinese ‘business partner’, placing Joe in immediate proximity to such events.

There has been, it seems, no effort whatsoever to assess whether Hunter was acting as a foreign agent, peddling influence and familial connections for monetary gain, though the Biden Justice Department and FBI continue to hide information from Congress and the American people, as Senator Grassley set out two weeks ago.  

It is not hard to imagine why: because of his surname. Had the Trumps been up to such japes there is no doubt it would be headline news until some time in the next century; nor is this a baseless claim. After all, the media spent years talking of ‘Russian collusion’ without finding a shred of evidence.

It all stinks. We exist in a world of blatant double standards, with kid gloves for establishment’s lackeys and the cat o’ nine tails for dissenters. Stories that should shake the foundations of the government are brushed aside as mere trifles – as long as the government is sympathetic to the correct causes – and sideshows are spun until they drown out everything else.
