A Biden Family Special Prosecutor in 2021?


If Joe Biden loses on Nov. 3, public interest in whether his son Hunter exploited the family name to rake in millions of dollars from foreign donors will likely fade away.

It will not matter, and no one will care.

But if Joe Biden wins the presidency, a prediction: By the Ides of March 2021, there will be an independent counsel or special prosecutor named to investigate the Biden family fortunes and how they were amassed.

Why is such an investigation a near certainty in a Biden era?

First, there is a 50-year tradition in America of an antagonistic media and political enemies pulling down presidents they oppose.

Watergate was the prototype — a political bugging of the sort that J. Edgar Hoover used to do as a courtesy for presidents.

Yet, the petty crime and White House cover-up was blown up by a hostile Congress, media and special prosecutor’s office to bring down a president who had just won 49 states and 60% of the nation.

In 1984, Ronald Reagan won a 49-state landslide. But when he lost the Senate in 1986, Washington, D.C., sought to break his presidency and bring him down for sending aid to anti-Communist Contras in Nicaragua. Reagan narrowly escaped to go on and win the Cold War for the West.

An investigation by an independent counsel of President Bill Clinton's Arkansas land deal metastasized into a sex scandal about which the president perjured himself. This led to his impeachment by a Republican House.

Even before he became president, Donald Trump was the target of an FBI probe. That evolved into the Mueller investigation, which took years to conclude that Trump hadn't colluded with Vladimir Putin in the 2016 election.

Yet, serious damage was done to Trump's presidency. And despite the failure of the Mueller investigation to find a smoking gun, Nancy Pelosi's House impeached the president for a phone call in which he suggested to the president of Ukraine that he might cooperate in a U.S. investigation of what Joe and Hunter Biden were up to in his country.

So it is that America has become a country where if you lose the presidential election, the fallback position is to impeach the victor.

The Third Worldization of American politics is well-advanced.

Yet, the cliche remains true: Where there's smoke, there's fire.

And Hunter Biden's business and investment career is like a California wildfire where the smoke can be seen in Colorado.

Consider. While Vice President Joe Biden was President Obama's point man on cleaning up corruption in Ukraine, son Hunter, with zero experience in the oil and gas industry, was suddenly offered a seat on the board of Burisma Holdings, a corrupt gas company in Ukraine, at $83,000 a month.

In 2013, Hunter accompanied his father to Beijing.

During his stay, Hunter apparently peeled off to arrange for $1.5 billion in Chinese funds to be transferred to an investment fund in which he was an advisor. So claims Trump.

According to a Senate report, in 2014, the widow of the mayor of Moscow transferred $3.5 million to an investment company started by Hunter Biden.

Hunter's lawyer denies it.

Comes now word that Hunter was in business with a Chinese company in 2017 and may have taken in $5 million, while stiffing his partner Tony Bobulinski.

Bobulinski, a former naval officer, claims that Hunter sought to leverage the Biden family name, and that he, Hunter and Joe Biden's brother Jim were involved in a project to raise cash from the Chinese. Moreover, the former vice president was a silent partner, the "big guy" in the operation whose name was never to be mentioned.

Bobulinski said he met with Joe Biden for an hour to discuss it.

The Biden campaign calls this Russian misinformation.

Bottom line, says Joe Biden:

I have never received a dollar in foreign money. I never used my office or influence to advance my son's business with foreign entities. I never spoke to my son about any of his dealings in Ukraine, Russia, China or anywhere else.

Major media are either denouncing the allegations as unproven or ignoring the story, the motive for which is apparent. Journalistic duty be damned. We have to get rid of Trump. And anything that jeopardizes that highest of goals should be buried until after Election Day.

However, if Joe Biden is elected, the incentive to cover for him and for Hunter vanishes. The old journalistic enthusiasm for the hunt to bring down another president will reappear, and more information will come spilling out.

And as the claims and counterclaims, and allegations and counterallegations collide, pressure will build for Biden's Department of Justice to bring in an independent counsel to investigate and separate what is true from what is false and what is unethical from what is criminal.

If Biden wins, son Hunter is going to have an exciting spring.

  1. I’m happy to see that there are people willing to sacrifice the nation in the name of dissension, division and distraction. What would we do without them?
    What we need is a positive and constructive approach to rebuilding our nation.
    Just think, no lies or other false witness. No thefts. Why are we coveting things we don’t really need.
    No murder, random or otherwise.
    Skip the fighting and dissension that leads up to murder and seemingly random killings.
    Skip adultery, it does not make a recognizable true adult of of people.
    Your father, your mother and many adults have been where you are now or in the future. Listen to them and profit. those who know nothing of the past are doomed to repeat it.
    Don’t revere people and things. They aren’t as important as you may think. Instead, pay attention to God and His directives. They’ll help you skip getting into trouble.

  2. And yet, IF Hunter turns up dead before Daddy Dearest gets actually sworn in, no need to bother with anything is there? And Hunter has been missing now for almost a whole week. Where is he? I personally don’t believe Joe is worthy of being a father let alone a president to our country. I know I don’t trust him with either my children, grandchildren or MY country!

  3. The biden crime family and obola should be tried and convicted of treason / sedition and “selling out’ USA. Period. Same goes for ALL d-RATS and rinos and ALL of obola’s chosen cabinet members and “appointees”. Period.

  4. The majority of the American people are not stupid and are aware of the corruption of the political elitist’s that make up are government. And we are aware of the media’s part in the Democrat establishments part in covering up the lefts crimes

  5. I have little doubt that Biden and his family are corrupt. The big problem is Trump and his family are even more corrupt. So very sad that a choice between these two is the best our major political parties can give us.

    1. So where exactly it the Trump corruption within our government. i doubt you can even explain your comment.
      Clearly did not take kick backs from Burisma execs or communist China as sleep Joe has.

  6. I think they have the first sentence s wrong . It should be if Biden wins the story will fade. And if he loses Really , no it won’t just go away.

  7. OK that’s IF Biden wins…he is so damned corrupt and more and more of us know this…so HOW can he possibly win unless he stacks the votes in his favour. An engineered win…against a President…who presents at times like some wild man in makeup…but is as cunning as a fox and smart as a whip. It is a matter of “Watch this Space” because a lot of DemocRATS may well get the shock of their lives in November. MAGA TRUMP!!! From an Aussie supporter.

  8. The problem with a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR is it takes them FOREVER for them to come up with NOTHING! See Muelller. & Durham…both utter failures.

  9. Biden and His ENTIRE Family should be Prosecuted for the Many CRIMES They have committed WIN OR LOSE! They have ALL being Lying and Stealing since Biden was Elected to Office!

  10. No the MORON MEDIA AKA the RECTUM SUCKING PUPPETS of the Democraps won’t go after Pedo Joe well actually the Ho his running mate since he will be declared unfit. Since Slick Willie made his first Assault on the White House the MORON MEDIA has done less and less to hide their Democrapic leanings. They gave up all pretense of being impartial. It was so bad that when Gore ran against Bush the top two anchors cried like babies when they had to say Gore lost. Then the Supreme Court had to put in their decision papers that it was Gore who was trying to break Florida law. Those in the Media LIED as requested by their masters the Democraps. It is so bad now that many supposed media outlets putout OUTRIGHT LIES about Trump. Look at the Steele mess they kept claiming Trump was guilty yet Trump was doing far more to hurt the people they swore were responsible for Trump being in office. Still even after it was proven a LIE try to say it was still fact. But look at everything that is against Biden that they NEVER admit. Just last week(this is October 31,2020) Biden told the people of Ohio he was running for Senate not once But TWICE. This is not his only gaffe yet not one word in the MORON MEDIA as I call them. They deny he is doing these things. They allow him to freely spew LIE after LIE. Take his tax plan. He says he won’t raise taxes on those making less than $400,000 a year but then says he will do away with the Trump tax cuts and that will raise taxes on everyone. He says he is bringing back Obozocare because it is just the best. If that is the case why did Democraps the only ones who voted for it endure that they and those who work for them are Exempt???

  11. I think it’s the total opposite. If Biden wins I think he and the dems are going to bury the Biden issues. They want Biden out and will use article 25 to do so. With Kamala in, they’ll have what they want. If Trump wins he will pursue the issue. I don’t think a special counsel is needed. It implies that the DOJ CAN’T do the job so another needs to be appointed to do so. Biden deserves jail time as well as quite a few others. All we can do is hope that justice is finally served.
