Joe & Co. Dodging Biden Inc. Scandals, Betting Media Will Play Along

“I’m just not going to answer that from here. Look, we’ve been hearing about House Republicans for years. . . the inaccuracies and lies when it comes to this subject.”

The was White House Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s response to questions about the House Oversight Committee’s latest revelations about Joe Biden’s shady family business.

Note that she didn’t even deny anything, just as the Bidens never actually said the laptop wasn’t Hunter’s.

And the only one peddling here is Jean-Pierre.

Everything the committee has produced — and what the Post has reported — is verified in black and white.

So yes, Hallie Biden got a $35,000 piece of a cute Chinese energy deal rigged by her brother-in-law and former flame hunter. Yes, Uncle Jim got a piece. And yes, a yet unnamed “Biden” (supposedly can it be “big guy” Joe himself?) got another one.

All of that is out of the question here.

But Jean-Pierre’s arrogant firing sends a clear signal: Team Joe will be reviewing its 2020 playbook leading up to the 2024 election.

The House Oversight Committee found that Hallie Biden received money from a deal with a Chinese energy company.

In other words:

  • Telling outright lies, such as Joe’s claim that he “never spoke to Hunter about his business” when he met with Hunter’s business associates at least 16 times.
  • Trust allies to throw in red herrings, like the “Russian disinformation fog” on the laptop trotted out in a letter signed by 51 former intelligence experts who clearly hope to support Biden’s election.
  • Issue vague denials that don’t address specific facts: Jean-Pierre’s predecessor, Jen Psaki, said Hunter Biden “does not work in government” in response to a question (after the laptop was “verified”) if Biden was ready his previous disinfo claims.
  • Attacking the accusers: Biden said during a 2020 debate that rival Donald Trump was “the only guy who made money from China,” while claiming “my son didn’t make money from China.”
  • Throw out some ugly, baseless accusations, like in Biden’s tongue-in-cheek 2020 remark that he “would not interfere with the Justice Department” if it decided to prosecute Trump post-election.
  • Count on most media outlets to shut down all of this with bogus “fact checks” and scathing news bans: In 2019 and 2020, headlines purporting to dissect Trump’s lies filled the pages of every major newspaper.

Worse, the White House has every Reason to be confident that this playbook will work again. Not least because the media is still playing defense.

There was no real interest in investigating the whys and wherefores of Hallie’s payment from, for example, the New York Times or the Washington Post.

Really? Isn’t it just a little bit curious that the President’s daughter-in-law who works as school counselor, got a lot of money from a Chinese energy company? For what?

Real journalists see stories like this and grab them by the teeth. The clerks we’re stuck with are doing everything in their power to get them out of here.

No wonder Jean-Pierre is confident enough to tell Americans not to believe their lying eyes. Joe & Co. Dodging Biden Inc. Scandals, Betting Media Will Play Along
