The Bidens Concede
Wall Street Journal ^ | October 14, 2019 | James Freeman

Not even the Biden family seems willing to stand behind their questionable financial arrangements. A business associate in Shanghai doesn’t seem to have an explanation yet, either. Are the bitter-enders at CNN and NBC News finally ready to stop defending the indefensible?

"More than five years after going into business with Hunter Biden, his associates in China are still “working on an explanation” of his role there? If this doesn’t arouse the curiosity of a neutral journalist, it’s hard to imagine what would."

Biden’s family sees him every day.
They surely realize that he’s entered full-on dementia
and this campaign is going nowhere.

So why keep up the fight?

“neutral journalist”

(Puke) Where? CNN? MSNBC? CBS? NBC? ABC? NYT? WP? LAT? AP? Rooters? That’s the last thing any of these clowns could ever be.

But I have to ask: Were laws broken?

What the Bidens did is sleazy and bad. I think it should be illegal. But I also think that it isn’t currently illegal.

Their sweetheart deals ought to turnoff all decent voters -— but all the decent voters are already voting for Trump. So, politically, as well as legally, it seems possible that the Ukraine/China/Romania stuff won’t matter.

Agree. If Hillary’s home brew classified bathroom server didn’t matter neither will this.

No, no, no. Joe Biden is just charmingly off-beat. Like a favorite uncle. Nothing like the dementia we are told PDJT is suffering from; 25th Amendment-type dementia. The kind of dementia that brings full employment and increasing prosperity to a whole nation as say opposed to one son.

Hillary was sunk when Trump tied her to corruption. Crooked Hillary rings a bell?

There is a large number of independent voters sensitive to this topic.

I think Hillary's multiple ethics issues did matter, and probably had a significant effect on swing voters. I think these issues with Biden also matter, significantly. He's been trying to position himself as an ethical politician who is all in for the ‘little guy’. All of this stuff is putting big holes in that narrative. Remember, if 1% of voters switch from one candidate to the other in the general election, that's a 2% swing. Every vote matters.

“It’s impossible for me to be on any of the boards... without saying I’m the son of the VP”

“If your last name wasn’t Biden do you think you would’ve been.. on the board?”

“Probably not”

It is illegal for executive branch employees to do what Joe did.

But, he was not an employee. He was elected.

So the law does not apply to him.

Who got the money?

Did Hunter keep all the money or did any of it end up in his father’s pocket, or how about if the money was “walking around money” for Senators.

Bribery is a crime. At least it should be investigated and people questioned and bank records looked at.

I WANT to be happy about Biden’s crumbling campaign, but I just can’t quite seem to get there. I am very afraid for the future. I had held out some hope that if Trump loses, at least Biden wouldn’t be as nuts as the others and was happy he was at the forefront only for this reason. I am afraid that we will end up with a radical Democrat ticket. I am so scared Trump will lose. I’m even more terrified of a Warren/Harris victory.

If you don’t believe there aren’t now enough batsh*t crazies out there who will gladly vote to destroy America, I’ve got oceanfront property in Kansas for you to buy.

If you say the word “Biden” to the “neutral” journalists they will start bleating in unison:

Unsubstantiated

Unsubstantiated

Unsubstantiated

Sheeps in a pen—terrified of the wolves outside and circling.

This is an excellent point.

The entire FRONTLINE documentary linked below is worth watching, but go to the segment from 42:28 to 44:00 and see how critical this point was with swing voters -- even while the mainstream media and the more "sophisticated" voters in major cities were so quick to dismiss Trump's fixation on Hillary's corruption as a desperate campaign gimmick.

Trump's Road to the White House

Frank Luntz is often derided here on FR, but his commentary on this point is spot-on.

It may or may not be illegal here, but China has a way of dealing with corrupt officials—the penalty there is death.

Can you say “extradition”.

Yes, I thought you could.
