It's been a
little while since the New York Time reluctantly admitted that the Hunter
Biden laptop story
originally broken by the New York Post, and widely pronounced by Democrat
leaning ex-intelligence figures, and the mainstream and social media as
Russian disinformation, was, in fact real, and Hunter's. So what's happened in
the meantime? Well, if you believe the major TV networks, not much.
ABC, CBS, NBC ignore Hunter Biden scandals, haven’t mentioned his name in

DaTechguy, DaTechGuy’s 6th Law of Media Outrage postscript
Yesterday I postulated DaTechguy’s 6th Law of Media Outrage which states:
The degree of protection by or attack of the media on any person is governed
by the degree of danger and/or usefulness to the Democrat party’s electoral
goals said protection or attack represents
And said that the NYT sudden “discovery” that the Hunter Biden Laptop was real
meant the following:
But now it’s 2022 and Joe Biden is becoming increasingly a threat to the
electoral prospects of the Democrat left. While nobody in his right mind
actually believes he is governing this nation the sheer incompetence of
those actually doing the job combined with the fiscal and foreign policy on
his administration’s watch are at a point where disaster looms for the left
if things continue.
So suddenly the Hunter Biden story instead of
being a threat is for the left at worst an old story that can’t make things
much worse or can be burred in the news of the war..
Of course at
best it might be a means of removing the threat that Joe Biden is.

This was immediately

Keep in mind that our government funded research
in Communist Chinese labs that may have produced the COVID-19 virus. We are
told, however, that the research our government was funding in Ukraine was
entirely benign, and if we express skepticism about this project (which, oh,
by the way, just happened to help make money for Joe Biden’s worthless
crack-addicted son) well, our skepticism is proof that we’re a bunch of kooky
right-wing conspiracy theorists. Wouldn’t it be nice if our government and our
media would tell us the truth once in while, so they could have more
credibility than the Kremlin?

And it turns out that, appropriately enough, Joe honors his dead son
with a scam. Breitbart, Report:
Beau Biden Charity Takes in Millions, Spends Fraction on Helping
Children. KT at Haut Hair, Beau Biden Foundation took in millions in donations, only spent thousands
on its mission, unless, much like the Clinton Foundation before it, it's real mission is to
collect nominally tax exempt funds to give to loyal political servants in
The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children was founded less
than a month after Beau died in 2015. Its mission is to prevent child abuse
by educating adults and children.
Its 2020 tax filing
shows that while the Beau Biden Foundation received $3.9M in donations, it
only spent $544,961 on
its mission. It spent only 58% of its budget on its mission, according to
CharityWatch, a watchdog group. The total donations includes $1.8M from The
Biden Foundation. The foundation also received $225,000 from one of Joe
Biden’s top political donors. Almost $1M went to paying the six-figure
salaries of executives of the foundation.
It’s a red flag for any
charity that spends more on its executives than on the services it provides.
Donors are supposed to trust that their contributions go
to the mission
of a charity, in this case protecting children from child abuse, and not to
lining the pockets of its executive leadership.
But, I'll give him this. At least he seems to know what a woman is, even if he sometimes likes them a little young.
