GOP Senator Livid After Biden’s Corruption Met With Media Silence

Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin speaking at CPAC 2011 in Washington, D.C. Gage Skidmore.

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) recently released its report on Hunter Biden’s conflict-of-interest while he sat on the board of corrupt energy company, Burisma Holdings, and the Biden family’s involvement with corrupt oligarchs while Joe Biden served as Vice President.

The report included new details showing Biden had multiple business associates with Chinese nationals with ties to the Communist government and its People’s Liberation Army. The report also released new details regarding Biden’s acceptance of a $3.5 million wire transfer from the Elena Baturina, the wife of former Moscow mayor and a known associate of Vladamir Putin. However, when this bombshell report was made public it was met with silence from the press and simply swept under the rug.

Senator Ron Johnson is not letting the obvious hypocrisy slide and is calling out the big-name media channels for their liberally slanted reporting if it can even be called reporting at this point. Most media companies attempted to spin the report simply as repackaged information that was already made public. Johnson made it clear that had any of these outlets actually taken the time to read the full report they would have seen the new details which came to light.

In an article for Fox News Senator Ron Johnson brought some of the report’s details to light that was ignored by the media:

“That a top official at the State Department, Amos Hochstein, was worried the Putin regime was using Hunter Biden’s association with Burisma to undermine U.S.-Ukraine policy. He spoke to Vice President Biden about his concerns because, according to Hochstein, Russians were using Hunter Biden’s role to advance disinformation. This means Joe Biden knew that his son’s business dealings cast a shadow over his own role in Ukraine policy — yet he did not resolve the conflict by changing his son’s behavior or stepping aside from his role.

Records indicate that Hunter Biden as well as other members of the Biden family received numerous money transfers from individuals and organizations associated with potential criminal activity.  Hunter Biden had business associations with Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and its People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in a massive cash flow — such as the $4,790,375.25 paid to his company in one 13-month stretch as  “consulting fees.”

Hunter Biden opened a bank account with one of those Chinese nationals, Gongwen Dong, that funded a $100,000 spending spree by himself, the vice president’s brother, James Biden, and his wife, Sara Biden. The Bidens used credit cards issued by the account to purchase $101,291.46 in airline tickets and merchandise from Apple stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants, among other things.”

The lack of media attention on what could easily be one of the biggest scandals in 2020 drew outrage from the Trump family who has been the subject of relentless attacks from the press since Trump won the presidency in 2016.

President Trump called out the press during a White House press briefing, “if we had media that was fair-even just reasonable- this would be the biggest story for years and years.”

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to express his infuriation and frustration over the media’s clear hypocrisy when reporting on Trump compared to  Biden.

It’s easy to see the sides media outlets have taken regardless of the fact their sole purpose is to report the truth to the American people. But only if that truth negatively affects Republicans.

Johnson asked, “Why did it fall to our committees to detail the payments from people running Chinese state-owned enterprises to the son of a potential future president? Why didn’t the legacy media bring this to light? The answer is that either the information we uncovered is indeed news — or the news outlets dismissing it were derelict in their duty.”

If the news media won’t report the truth, if fact is suppressing the truth, the FCC should step up to the plate and revoke their broadcast licenses. They twist the truth about President Trump and just don’t report anything that they know is false from Biden. For example, why didn’t they press Biden on the question of Antifa like they did trump. Chris Wallace is a loser.

I don’t think that there are any TRUE JOURNALISTS anymore. Nothing like the guys from Watergate. THEY were true Journalists. What they are turning out these days are a bunch of Leftists puppets who repeat what they are told to. Otherwise they would have jumped on the Biden story, and they would have gone into fits when Biden said that “Antifa is just an idea”. What??? They should have been going crazy after that one sided debate. If there are any real Journalists, they must work for some tiny little tv station or newspaper in some town nobody has ever heard of. I wish a plethora of them would move to Washington D.C. and start sticking their noses into everything crooked. Although they would probably be risking their lives just like the ones who had “accidents”, or committed suicide with 3 bullets to the back of their heads. Like the reporter who was “mugged”. The Clintons have enough dirt to keep 40 Journalists digging for the next Century.

One of the “true journalists” from Watergate is Bob Woodward, who just released a book vilifying our President. Neither he nor Bernstein are true journalists, they are Leftists who have gone after every Republican president we’ve had.

Now this article makes it sound like Joe Biden got the money from the Russian oligarch, when in fact it could have been his son, there is no actual confirmation to prove what was said here. Now when you start judging parents for what their adult children do it could easily backfire on you, mainly because most have no control over the adult children’s actions. Not one word about the Hurst family when their daughter patty joined the SLA back in the 1970, and that was a terrorist group.

Patty Hurst did not join a terrorist group–she was kidnapped.

Your memory is very short. Do you remember what was done to and said about Don Trump Jr. when he was deceived into meeting with Russians? No money passed hands and no crime was committed; however, it was the topic of mainstream news for MONTHS, and the goal was to discredit Trump, Sr. No crime was involved, reported the translator, an eyewitness.

Biden Jr was the recipient of vast sums from both the Russians and the Chinese during his father’s tenure as vice-president. Since Biden Jr has no demonstrable skills with marketable value and since, self-admittedly, he was used to obtaining favors because of his last name, one must naturally assume some connection between Biden Sr’s political influence and his son’s receipt of millions of dollars. Compare this to presence at a “meeting,” contrived by Clinton/Obama operatives.

The Obama presidency (and the Biden vice-presidency) will be be identified by future historians as the most corrupt ever to have existed in this country, if, indeed, this country continues to exist in its present state of freedom.

The bottom line is that you, like the mainstream press, do not see what you don’t want to see. Too bad; you’re being deceived.

Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden were being investigated for Money Laundering by Ukrainian Prosecutor, before Biden withheld the Billion Dollars, unless the Prosecutor was fired. The Prosecutor was fired and poisoned.
See the entire video series by Mayor Rudy Giuliani on YouTube called” Common Sense”. It is an eight to ten part series with signed testimony and interviews with Ukrainian officials. FBI would not pursue the corruption, nor the CIA, which is why Ukrainian officials turned to Rudy Giuliani.

They reason Baby Hunter was able to get so much money from Russia, Ukraine, China and other countries is because Big Daddy was VP. He admitted it himself~~ he said the only reason he was rich is because his last name is Biden. They are both crooks.

Joe was smack in the middle of his son’s dealings. Do you not recall that it was Joe who got the prosecutor fired with a threat of withholding the billion plus that was to go as foreign aid? He gave the country just a few hours to act as he was going to catch a plane home and would take his money with him. He made a speech about it and was proud he had done it. Open your eyes and do some research before patting him on his butt for a good job.

The ONLY question UN-ASKED by the moderator that simply had to be asked, was why Obama/Biden provided a $3,700,000.00 Grant to the two WUHAN virology Labs in China where this KungFlu virus began. The research supposedly was to determine if a virus could “transmit between a bat and a human”. The next question, would automatically be WHY ! ! 
I guess that question would be asked by the families of the 200,000 dead Americans, but for some reason NO ONE IS ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS ! !

It is very important that the GOP in THIS case of certifying Barrett to the Supreme Court can be done via Zoom or other for Senators with a positive COVID-19 test. The Democrats have determined that it is ok for mail-in voting for COVID-19 therefore it should be ok to do the Judge Barrett voting for the same reason.

The democrat party has risen to the level of a cult. Its dogma is sociocommunism. Its primary principle is government ownership of the means of production, including labor, along with distribution of goods and services. To achieve the necessary level of control it also must control what people think, say, see and do. In order to achieve such control, government now owns big media that has been reduced to click bait for the democrat party.

This era was outlined, almost exactly, in a book by Aldos Huxley – BRAVE NEW WORLD, which many called a sci-fi novel. Problem is it was written by an avid Socialist/Communist believer and what he hoped would become the future of America . . . Would be a good thing for the Biden supporters to read that book before they vote for the New World Order.

@Gene Raino the Democratic solution to achieving the necessary level of control is dependent upon the Supreme Court that’s the key to eliminate the 1st and 2nd Amendments! Biden is the one who originally started destroying the confirmation process for the Supreme Court Justices. Senator Ted Cruz’s new book gives the facts and information related to the Obama Administration’s attempt to do away with 1st Amendment behind the badmouthing of Hillary! They came up 1 vote shy in a 5-4 decision but the fact that 4 justices voted in favor of banning free speech should have been a wake up call…their plan is to have the judicial branch do the work of the legislative branch cutting out the people’s ability to have a say in the matter let alone a vote!!!!

Biden, the Scranton, PA,D.C. Swamp mafia Dom and his supporters will soon face justice and all of his political allies will face unimaginable scorn and retribution. They are each and every one complicit and engaged. There are more honest patriotic Americans informed with the facts than there are DNC sheeple feeding on the lies and deception of CCP propaganda being spread by the DC Swamp the media scum Cuomo, Lemon, Scarborough, Wallace, and the rest of the Soros/Bloomberg consortium of left extremist anti-Americans. The coming tea party will make the original appear to be infinitesimal in comparison.

These corrupt dishonest people who claim to be the “MEDIA” are not the media at all. The media reports FACTS and then, based on those facts, you get to decide what you believe or think.

These fake news hacks report what they think and the facts be damned. They are propagandists not media.

If they had even one ounce of integrity they would be ashamed but it is very clear that they have no integrity or ethics at all.

President Trump is 100% correct when he calls them the “FAKE NEWS”.

NOMOJO Biden doesn’t have what it takes, he’s a fool that makes careless and foolish comments, a real problem when asking to be considered for President.
“…the man who really counts in the world is the doer, not the mere critic-the man who actually does the work, even if roughly and imperfectly, not the man who only talks or writes about how it ought to be done.” (1891)
“Criticism is necessary and useful; it is often indispensable; but it can never take the place of action, or be even a poor substitute for it. The function of the mere critic is of very subordinate usefulness. It is the doer of deeds who actually counts in the battle for life, and not the man who looks on and says how the fight ought to be fought, without himself sharing the stress and the danger.” (1894) Teddy Roosevelt
