If Joe Biden Can’t Fix His Sick and Dysfunctional Family, How Can He Fix America? by Larry C Johnson

Hunter-and-joe-600x338

I don’t know who coined the phrase, “Whatever the Democrats accuse a Republican of doing, it means that the Democrats are doing worse.” Never has this been more true, especially in the case of Joe Biden. Grandpa Joe’s feigned outrage during the last debate about Donald Trump allegedly ripping illegal immigrant children from the loving arms of their families, stands in stark contrast to Joe Biden's inaction when notified that his son, Hunter Biden, had an “inappropriate” relationship with a member of the Biden family.

The fable about illegal immigrant children being separated from parents a la the selection line at Auschwitz did not start with Hunter Biden. It was a pre-planned media hit delivered courtesy of NBC’s Kristin Welker. But Joe Biden's response to Welker's query was more than the typical ramblings of a political hack. It exposed his own hypocrisy with respect to his own family.

Kristin Welker asked:

Mr. President, your administration separated children from their parents at the border, at least 4000 kids, You've since reversed your zero tolerance policy, but the United States can't locate the parents of more than 500 children. So how will these families ever be reunited?

Welker's question was inspired by a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on Tuesday, October 22, which claimed the ACLU:

had been unable to contact parents of 545 children who were separated at the border by the Trump administration, leaving the children living with sponsors throughout the United States.

While Welker's question implied that Trump was a heartless monster who did not care that children were languishing in cages worthy of a North Vietnamese prison camp, the truth is otherwise–the children are living with sponsors. They are not in squalor nor are they forcibly separated from parents frantically searching for them. Welker and the ACLU left out one important fact–89% of the parents, who have been deported, don't want their kids back at home. Chase Jennings, a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson, said:

after contact has been made with the parents to reunite them with their children, many parents have refused," Jennings said in a statement provided to ABC News. "In the current litigation, for example, out of the parents of 485 children whom Plaintiffs' counsel has been able to contact, they have yet to identify a single family that wants their child reunited with them in their country of origin. The result is that the children remain in the U.S. while the parents remain in their home country."

Why let pesky facts get in the way of an outrageous smear? Truth challenged and eminent plagiarist Joe Biden jumped on this lie like a ravenous chicken on a fat bug. Biden bellowed:

You have 525 kids not knowing where in God’s name they’re going to be and lost their parents.

Can Joe Biden really be trusted to ensure the welfare of illegal immigrant children in light of what we are learning about the sordid affairs in his own family?

Too bad Joe Biden does not care as much for his own family as he does for illegal immigrants. The revelations from the Hunter Biden hard drive paint a disturbing picture of a Grandfather told about possible sexual abuse of his granddaughter but believes his son's denial and does not pursue the matter with authorities. So much for ensuring little girls are safe.

OAN's Rion Chanel lays out the sordid allegations that are buttressed (start at 5:30 mark) by texts and video. She specifically names Hunter's niece:

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit was the first to report on the text messages (see his report here) If you look at these texts in chronological order it becomes very clear that this was not an isolated event. (Note–the text messages cited below first appeared in Jim's article.) The string of text messages make clear that there was an uproar in the Biden family about Hunter's alleged sexual abuse of his niece and that Grandpa Joe knew all about it. This crisis erupted in the summer of 2018. The string starts with Hunter sending the following text to his 14 year old niece:

I love you [name blacked out] but your Mom just decided that she is willing to risk having you taken from her rather than spend a month with family in Malibu, CA. She told pop that she would call the police if I tired to see you . . . .

This message makes it very clear that Joe Biden was aware prior to July 5, 2018 about the allegations surrounding Hunter's improper relationship with Joe's grand daughter.

One week later, Hunter Biden continues to fume and vents his fury to his erstwhile business partner and friend, Devon Archer:

[My sister-in-law] won't let me see [my niece] without my Father present. Can you fucking imagine that. That fuck up . . . is keeping me from talking to or being around [my niece].

The allegations about Hunter and the niece were common knowledge among the senior members of the Biden clan. Hunter's Uncle Jim made it quite clear he believed Hunter and rejected the claim by Beau Biden's widow. Writing a text on August 10, 2018, Uncle Jim minces no words:

Hunter it is imperative you call me or your father. Your father is getting as am I barraged by [family member]. He has not responded. I have not responded. We both agree with and trust you. She is spreading what you told me and I believe you!!!! Are lies. Once again we both need you side of the story so we can both shove it down her fucking throat !!!! I implore you to call. Please I/we are on you side. I believe you, this is nothing short of character assassination. Love, U Jim.

Looks like Uncle Jim was not privy to the photos and videos on Hunter's laptop. Otherwise, he might have chosen more diplomatic language rather than the crude expression, i.e., "shove it down her fucking throat." There is a photo of Hunter inserting more than words into the mouth of a woman (see here–warning, graphic content).

If you believe in the power of prayer I encourage you to pray for Hunter Biden and that he find some way to repent of these sins and find forgiveness and peace. One of the texts sent to a family friend reveals the depth of Hunter's tortured soul:

. . . tell people I'm sexually inappropriate with her daughter. If any one of you ever repeat that again I swear to go you might as well put the gun to my head yourself because XXX if all the tabloids who live to Dick with me anyway were to repeat a rumor XXXX came from XXXX that that's why I can't come home I will not survive that no one could survive that. She is stupid and she is reckless and she is evil. and if you can't get her to see her own self interest in never saying that again as a reason I'm not allowed to be alone with [xxxx.]

Hunter shared his frustration over the allegations surrounding his relationship with a family member with another family friend and, in the process, made it clear that his mother knew about the situation:

wouldn't they believe exactly what [my sister-in-law] tells them. Or my mom tells him things like I'm sexually inappropriate with the children.

I don't know about you, but my mother has never had to have a talk with me about being sexually inappropriate with children. I learned growing up that adults don't engage children sexually.

This is a sad, filthy chapter in the Biden family story. We now have video and photographic evidence, coupled with the texts, that dispel the claim that this was ginned up by Russians or a disgruntled sex partner of Hunter Biden. Hunter is an addict and his behavior rings true for every family who has had a loved one who has been bitten with the addiction bug.

But this narrative is not about the failings and weaknesses of Hunter Biden. It is an indictment of Joe Biden as father and patriarch of the Biden clan. The record is clear, especially in light of the testimony of Tony Bobulinski on Tucker Carlson tonight, that Joe Biden eagerly and repeatedly used Hunter to enrich himself without regard for the law or the basic tenets of morality. Joe Biden appears to have sold out his own son for his own ambitions. And Joe Biden did this without taking any steps that we know of to compel his son to get help and get clean. If Joe Biden cannot protect his own family from an apparent sexual predator in his own family, how can he protect and preserve this Republic?

  1. Serge says:

    I agree with you Larry, I think it is a product of modern degenerate american society that many people react to news about Hunter with “Joe has immense love for his junky son, you can’t blame a father for loving his son, Joe is only standing by his family, Hunter’s behavior and lifestyle do not reflect back on the father”
    The father has responsibility in this case, adult son or no, and especially if the adult son is preying on other member’s of the clan. This junky POS should have been cut off long ago, not given hundreds of thousands in corrupt sweetheart deals. Hunter and his father are both POS.

  2. Fred says:

    Larry,
    Why would all those foreign companies given Hunter Biden millions of dollars or put him on the board of directors other than for access to his father?
    Biden’s failure to parent his own children is horrendous. I’m reminded of Harvey Weinstein, now sentenced to 23 years in prison for “first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape.” Hollywood knew, they all knew. Obama even let Malia work for him, but then she was 18 at the time so that must make Harvey’s conduct above reproach. Just like Joe’s.

    Presuming the niece is Beau Biden’s daughter (because Hallie Biden is the only sister-in-law from what I can tell), did Humbert Humbert Biden engage in an affair with his brother’s widow in order to have access to her daughter Natalie?

  4. eakens says:

    this is a symptom of a system that does not punish people for lying under oath to congress.

  5. Deap says:

    Maria Schriver Schwarggener recently did a Biden ad stating how eager she was for the “return to decency” that would come instantly with a Biden election. This is the same woman who turned a blind eye to her own husband Arnold Schwarzenegger, who as governor, became quickly known as the Gropenator – since he (too) could not keep his hands off other women and lusted after AG Kamala Harris on a hot mike.
    Mrs Schwarzenegger laughed it off – Arnold is just being Arnold she told.. Finally when it was revealed Arnold had fathered and supported a child with the maid in her own household, Maria finally called it quits.
    And now she is begging for a “return to decency” with Biden? Agree, Democrats have made themselves immune to conventional standards of decency. Yet they choose to stand in moral authority against the rest of us. Axiom proven again – whatever Democrats accuse others of doing, they are doing themselves 1000 fold.

  6. Deap says:

    If Joe sold out his own son, what did his son do to Dad in return by “forgetting” to pick up his incriminating lap top?
    The tangled lives of the Greek God Zeus and his progeny were in fact not ‘Greek Myths” – they were Mount Olympus household diaries. If they could make an opera about Nixon in China, surely there must movie rights for Biden in the (De)Basement.

  7. james says:

    let me fix the title for you..
    “If Joe Biden Can’t Fix His Sick and Dysfunctional Family, How Can He Fix (a sick and dysfunctional) America? or was that left out because you think differently??
    i am sure some think America is fine and not dysfunctional too… so, maybe you had the title more accurate leaving my addition out… i am curious… i think it depends on who you talk to… i would argue the polarization on display strengthens my subjective viewpoint…

  8. Artemesia says:

    Deap, Keith Harbaugh posted this link https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/10/28/short-thoughts-on-bobulinski-interview/
    Bidens’s behavior was known to intelligence communities but they did nothing, perhaps to create a “black file” to control a Biden administration.
    It did seem to me sudden and unexpected that Biden became the ordained Dem candidate.
    Rick Wiles at TruNews has a slightly different take: his team unearthed what they identified as a note on White House stationery, purportedly between Hunter and Obama, promising Obama “$400 000 annual sal. plus $2 million /year for 5 years for an office”. The allegation is that Hunter mediated a deal from China to Obama, that Obama is now using to fund Antifa & BLM to bring down US government in favor of China.
    Far fetched?
    How do the two scenarios fit together? Are the agencies mentioned in the Conservative Treehouse item working with or against the scheme of Obama-Biden to betray US to China?

  9. fakebot says:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8890511/Zuckerberg-limited-spread-Hunter-Biden-revelations-FBI-warned-Russia-interferring.html

    Republican Senator Ron Johnson later pushed Zuckerberg on if the FBI contacted him regarding the New York Post story and its validity.
    ‘Did the FBI contact you and say the New York Post story was false?’ the Wisconsin senator asked
    ‘Senator, not about that story specifically,’ Zuckerberg admitted.
    ‘Why did you throttle it back?’ he asked.
    ‘They alerted us of a – to be on heightened alert around a risk of hack and leak operations around a release of trove of information,’ the Facebook founder said.
    (…)
    ‘We also see continued attempts by Russia and other countries, especially Iran and China to run these kind of information operations,’ he told the panel Wednesday. ‘We also see an increase in, kind of, domestic operations around the world Fortunately, we’ve been able to build partnerships across the industry, noth with companies here today and with law enforcement and the intelligence community to be able to share signals to identify these threats sooner.’

    So the FBI alerted them of “hack and leak operations around a… trove of information.” Zuckerberg says he has also seen an increase of “domestic operations.”
    Domestic operations! There’s an interesting choice of words.
    I have some reservations about these laptops. Even if the contents are real, and I believe it is, the fact remains that blackmail is blackmail. The question is did this content originate with the Communist Chinese blackmailing Hunter or with that Al Neri wannabe Bannon and his patron Miles Guo who is wanted in China for fraud? It could be a “domestic operation.”

  10. Larry C Johnson says:

    Fakebot,
    Please explain blackmail. The laptop and hard drive were turned over to the FBI in December 2019. That’s blackmail? Don’t be silly. The only reason that Rudy’s organization got the hard drive is because the FBI did not do its job and was hiding evidence relevant to the question of whether Joe Biden is beholden to the Chinese. He is. Bobulinski’s testimony is one more devastating piece of evidence. It is Biden and his gang of thugs claiming, without one shred of evidence, that this is a Russian effort. Bullshit.

  11. turcopolier says:

    James
    No. Outside the democrat enclaves the US is quite well.

  12. Deap says:

    Artemesia, the only thing sudden about creepy Joe finally getting the nod for the nomination is the DNC was rightly faced with a Bernie Sanders win during their early the primary voting. That was their worst nightmare, and Joe was not yet so obviously impaired – incompetent yet, but that was already a known factor. He would serve as a useful fool for the DNC, just like Obama had for 8 years prior.
    The DNC old guard moved heaven and earth to turn the threat of a Sander’s nomination victory around, which they did by finally getting a Biden win in South Carolina – based on a high black vote turnout for Joe. No word on what was promised to get that vote and turn the tide away from Sanders.
    Otherwise they were going to be stuck with Bernie Sanders. Biden was on the ropes at the time, and was exposed primarily for his wandering hands, leers and sniffs. Jill Biden at the time had to promise to reign him in. Now Biden is going to “bring back decency”? That was the sudden transformation – from dirty old man to paragon of Democrat virtue, in just a few short months.
    There was talk about a brokered convention and super-delegates out-voting Sanders. But, gosh, “covid” sucked the air out of anything other than Biden, Biden, Biden after March 2020.
    BTW, when trying to track down a photo of Hunter’s “favorite” teenage niece, I came across one more creepy photo of Gramps Joe with his hand very high around her waist and reaching very uncomfortably close to her emerging womanhood.

    Let me guess, the delivery workers were union members?

  14. Ghost Ship says:

    Wasn’t it the Obama/Biden regime that started separating immigrant children from their parents? In the interest of openness, perhaps Welker should have asked Biden how he now felt about creating the infrastructure to continue this policy.

  15. Fred says:

    Artemesia,
    Rick Wells at True News must have missed all the mult-million dollar commitments to BLM from multiple corporate and NGO donors. NGO’s are also behind a great deal of antifa/BLM activities previously. There might be some Chinese activity there, but using the Biden’s probably wasn’t it. As to Obama, Hunter might have been dumb enough to use actual White House stationairy to write up such a plan, Obama would never be that stupid nor even dumb enough to put such a thing in writing.

  16. Diana L Croissant says:

    Joe’s own proclivity to cross the line in regard to touching little girls has been well-known. There have been various YouTube videos posted to illustrate how creepy he is.
    Here is just one:

    James,
    It certainly is, the left has been pushing Christianity out of the mainstream since before the ’60s. What you see in BLM/Antifa burning cities while lefties in charge of them ‘stand down’ the regime protecting police/NG is the fruit of that action – and the fear that Trump and his ‘chumps’ – the Deplorables – are actually doing something to stop them.
    Deap,
    are you really mistaking Obama not putting damning evidence in writing, on of all things WH stationairy, with authoring a puff-piece bio?

  21. Artemesia says:

    True enough, Fred, major corporations are funding BLM etc.
    Did that happen spontaneously?
    Or did someone powerful organize them, maybe someone with a background in community organizing?
    A photo, dated Apr. 4, 2016, of the note and of Hunter with Obama in the Oval Office was found among Hunter’s emails. ( ~1:16 in video here: https://www.trunews.com/stream/g-news-reveals-pics-and-vids-suggesting-hunter-biden-had-sex-with-niece-and-obama-s-daughter )
    Wiles’ interpretation of the note and photo were highly speculative. Make your own judgment.
    An Oct 27 2020 TruNews segment reported that Obama met with Jinping within a fortnight of Trump winning the 2016 election, and again a year later — TruNews showed extensive clips of Obama in a tête-à-tête with Xi Jinping in China amid all the trappings of a state visit in that November 2017 meeting ( ~40 min https://www.trunews.com/stream/secret-audio-hunter-biden-discusses-partnership-with-china-spy-chief )

    How Can He Fix America?
    Neither Joe nor Trump nor the current political duopoly “Can Fix America”, IMO. Only the voters can. And as long they keep voting Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum nothing will change, except increasing economic power in hands of the few.
    Economic power is more concentrated today than at any point in the past century. Almost every industry is dominated by a handful of players. This consolidation not only has resulted in unprecedented wealth inequality as the Top 0.1% have as much wealth as the bottom 90% but the plutocracy have a stranglehold on the political, media & governmental system.
    If one thought cancel culture is bad today with Bg Tech determining what most see as “news” on social media and web searches, we ain’t seen nothing yet. If one thought the self-supporting relationship between Big Business & Big Government is bad now, we ain’t seen nothing yet.
    Only a restoration of competitive markets, the primacy of the natural rights of citizens over state & corporate rights and accountability through the equal application of the law especially for those at the highest echelons of power will fix America.

  23. fakebot says:

    Larry,
    First off I do want to commend you for a lot of the work you do. You put together a lot information and timelines that helped to expose the Russia collusion hoax, but I suspect this is a China blackmail hoax.
    There’s just things that don’t sit right with me. What’s happening now with this Hunter stuff is reminiscent to the investigation into the Weiner laptop. Then there’s that fiasco between Jeff Bezos and the National Enquirer. Bezos said he was being extorted and blackmailed, he all but named the president and the Saudis as being responsible for it. And then there’s things like how Charles Kushner went to jail for blackmailing his brother-in-law. He potentially blackmailed the disgraced, closeted governor of NJ too. There are too many similarities between these things that raise questions of blackmail by people associated or aligned with the president.
    Miles Guo and Bannon are the ones releasing these sex videos of Hunter, not Communist China. What’s to say they didn’t set Hunter up with a prostitute who then filmed their encounter and took photographs, like the one the NY Post shared with the crack pipe in his mouth? I believe the crack pipe was placed in Hunter’s mouth while he was asleep. It was clearly taken by someone else.
    I agree that Hunter mostly incriminated himself. I believe the Bidens make crooked deals. I believe the emails are real. But in saying all that my gut tells me people who align themselves to President Trump set Hunter up to hurt Joe and boost Trump’s reelection prospects. They’re concocting this story that he’s a Chinese stooge in the same way Trump was accused to be a Russian agent. It’s revenge. The materials themselves and the timing of their release provide indication of that.

  24. turcopolier says:

    “my gut tells me people who align themselves to President Trump set Hunter up to hurt Joe.” OK. Have your gut tell us how they did that considering the time lines.

    @ fred…. maybe… i think this doesn’t have to be viewed in an intentionally negative way… what about the idea there are different religions and religious beliefs that have come to north america, thanks the open door policy on immigration?? we have become more exposed to different religions over the course of time.. i view the advent of the 60’s as another part of this… think of the beatles travelling to india and the whole new interest in eastern religions and etc among a young generation that i am guessing you and i were a direct part of?? to say the left has been pushing christianity out of mainstream is ignoring how so much has changed in the past 50 or 60 years… what are you advocating for at this point??

  27. Fred says:

    Artemesia,
    I reccomend you find a copy of “SJW’s Always Lie” followed by “Corporate Cancer” by the very reviled Vox Day. “Convergence” is his term, but it pretty much describes the long march through the institutions Gramsci was talking about. Corporate employees can be manipulated the same way, especially when you start in HR.

  28. Larry C Johnson says:

    Fakebot,
    I pray you never worked as an analyst. You seem to be a kind, trusting soul, but analysis clearly is not your strong suit. The videos on the Hunter’s hard drive were uploaded to Pornhub by Hunter himself. He created an account using the pseudonym “Robert.” The dates on the uploads show conclusively they could only have come from the hard drive. The Gateway Pundit posted a very good piece this afternoon on the very subject.
    You obviously did not watch any of the videos. Hunter is smoking crack openly. In fact, he took photos of at least 12 different escorts who were with him smoking crack. This was not produced by the Chinese. It is pure Hunter.
    If Rudy had inserted or manufactured these videos and images, the FBI could shut him down in a heart beat and thoroughly destroy his credibility if those videos and images were not on the hard drive they took possession of in December 2019.
    Nice try friend.

  29. Adrian Gillies says:

    Larry Biden’s slogan is “Battle for the Soul of a Nation”
    The only thing I know to be true when it comes to “the battle for souls”, of any kind, be it a nation or its people….
    The devil doesn’t take smoke breaks and Biden clearly has made a bargain with him…. as well as China Ukraine and lord knows what else….

  30. TeakWoodKite says:

    I read Hunter has been in and out of rehab six times…. only from one source though
    The federalist I think.
    So to say the family or slo joe didn’t try to help would be charitable but then one has to wonder why you would put Hunter in high trigger situations of you gave a shit.
    Hunter reminds me of the crack epidemic in Astoria Queens back in the day.
    Sad

  31. fakebot says:

    Colonel,
    These materials emerged around the same time Trump was pushing investigations into Hunter’s activities that led Democrats to impeach Trump again. Bannon and Miles Guo are the ones who initially concocted this narrative that China is blackmailing Biden. I have a strong suspicion they set him up and I think it may have been with a Chinese prostitute.
    Mr. Johnson,
    I don’t dispute Hunter incriminated himself for the better part. There’s no question he smokes crack. It’s evident he took photos and video of himself doing drugs and having sex with prostitutes going back for years, but some photos suggest someone was trying to blackmail him. For example, this picture was taken while he was sleep:
    https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2020/10/15/09/34418592-8842709-In_some_of_the_images_Hunter_Biden_is_seen_with_a_crack_pipe_han-a-1_1602749569849.jpg
    The crack pipe was planted in this photo.
    I do see some problems with these materials and I would hate to see this blog or yourselves tarnished by the Left if later it emerges this CCP blackmail stuff was a stunt orchestrated by Bannon and Miles Guo to upend the 2020 election and slime Biden the way they slimed Trump.

  32. Fred says:

    fakebot,
    you mean we should voluntarily put ourselves behind the digital iron curtain because maybe ‘it’s a setup’ – based on your conjecture that Bannon did it? Do you dispute the payments from Burisma to Hunter? Did Bannon set that up too? Did all the previously publicized prior meetings between Hunter and Chinese officials and his travels on AF2 also get set up by Bannon, or just this particular batch of whoremongering shown on his laptop? His uploads to Pornhub, was that Bannon too?
    Where are all the lefty libel lawyers? Are the Biden’s waiting for the election to be over to file suit? Why?

  33. Larry C Johnson says:

    Fakebot,
    You are now proving to be both a clown and a troll. You have zero evidence for your claim that Hunter had someone sneak up and plant a crack pipe in his mouth.ZERO. Yet, you persist in deflecting from actual documentary evidence and video evidence. Just pathetic.

  34. fakebot says:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/04/world/asia/china-mar-a-lago-guo-wengui.html

    In 2006, he handed to the police a sex tape of a Beijing deputy mayor who had disputed one of his land deals. The official was imprisoned and Mr. Guo got the property, building the torch-shaped Pangu Plaza next to Beijing’s Olympic Green, a landmark during the 2008 Summer Games.

    Keep safe.

  35. blue peacock says:

    Col. Lang,
    Your point is well taken. Yes, there is a big difference between the two major party candidates in this election and clearly the empty vessel Harris will do whatever her minders want her do.
    The point I am making is that under the political duopoly, in the past 50+ years, the issues that in my opinion are some of the most important in driving towards a complete abrogation of our constitutional system of individual liberty and free markets have only exacerbated. In Trump’s first term those issues have only worsened. I believe until voters change from supporting the duopoly and no longer voting for the lesser evil, these trends cannot be arrested let alone reversed.
    My concern is 3 fold:
    – Growing concentration of economic power as pretty much every industry consolidates into a handful of dominant players eliminating competitive markets.
    – This concentrated economic power increasingly dominating political, judicial and media power to the detriment of the working & middle class. And the resultant unequal application of the law.
    – My read of history is that whenever wealth inequality rises to the levels we have now and you combine it with arbitrary application of the law, then the population becomes susceptible to demagogues from both the left and right. The outcomes have not been good for individual liberty.

  36. Fred says:

    fakebot,
    That’s NYT article from 2017 recycling a story from 2006 is not Bannon setting up poor old Hunter.
