The recent revelations concerning Hunter Biden demonstrate yet again how the liberal elite of the Democratic Party use their power and privilege to protect their own. For years, Hunter Biden was able to hide behind the protection of powerful allies like his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, while engaging in shady business deals, some of which are now being investigated by federal authorities.
It appears that after Republicans won control of the House in January, Hunter Biden and his network of advisers sought to protect themselves from any investigations or criticism through a variety of tactics. At a meeting held at the California home of Hunter’s friend Kevin Morris and attended by David Brock – founder of the liberal Super PAC Correct The Record – Morris suggested filing defamation lawsuits against Fox News and other critics, while Brock proposed creating a pro-Biden group called Facts First USA to combat any false narratives about Hunter.
It is also concerning that a laptop believed to have been used as material released by Rudy Giuliani et al was left with Keith Ablow, who has close ties to Donald Trump associate Roger Stone. Given Stone’s history in spreading disinformation and conspiracy theories during past election cycles, it is difficult not to be suspicious that this laptop might have been used as part of an effort to manipulate public opinion against Biden ahead of next year’s election.
This reeks of political favoritism and smacks squarely against principles such as transparency and rule of law that every American should expect from their elected leaders regardless of party affiliation. It must be noted however that there has been no evidence thus far that suggests any illegal activity on behalf of Hunter Biden or anyone else connected with him.
Nevertheless, it is clear that these actions taken by those close to Hunter should raise eyebrows everywhere. It is unfortunate but unsurprising when powerful individuals seek out ways to insulate themselves from criticism using legal strategies such as defamation lawsuits or tactic such as PR campaigns designed solely for their own benefit rather than the benefit of society at large. This type of behavior undermines respect for our democratic institutions and threatens our democracy itself if not addressed properly and swiftly by both parties involved.
