So a bunch of tax advisors were in on the money laundering too. No surprise, nor surprise that the druggy will get off.

"... the press will say that all charges have been resolved."

The question then becomes not whether we are a banana republic but when we became one and who made it happen. Who RUNS (senior management) and OWNS the 6 holding corporations that constitute our mainstream corporate media that 90% of the population consumes?

We are not leaves blowing in a hurricane, but lab rats in someone else's abomination of a communist multicultural experiment. The experiment is failing hard and the children of the West are its primary victims.

Just so we are all on the same page. Hunter Biden can take a pass because he relied upon his "professional tax advisors"; but Trump is supposed to end up in Sing Sing because he did the same thing.

Looking over from the UK I am aghast at the state of things in the USA.
Granted corruption has long been part & parcel of the US Political System, but that corruption has become so blatant, particularly in the US Establishment's opposition to the President, that you have become a banana republic and, like every other banana republic are sliding inexorably towards breaking up and, God forfend, a civil war.

I weep for America.

Some folks have so little tactical patience. One would expect the DNC to wait until after Inauguration Day to push Biden out of the way. Like a bunch of entitled distant relatives that can't wait for the terminally-ill wealthy grandfather to pass on his own; instead they finish him off with a pillow in the night and claim it was "natural causes."

Deap,
what about that: The charges against hunter Boden are a trumpish goodbye to the Biden clan after bag man Guiliani failed to coerce/persuade Ukraine to provide something, anything that could be thrown at Hunter to damage his father? Hunter is, in that sense, just some more trumpish collateral damage.

Think of Trump's current habit to harass - loudly and openly hostile - Georgia officials about the election (desperately hunting 2 Georgia GOP senators and senate majority so Mitch McConnell can play Mr. BLOCKER again), so far just resulting in numerous death threats against them.

I am not convinced that Barr would have any problem to encourage a Hunter investigation to happen in that state. It is entirely plausible to me that Trump may have screamed at Barr to pressure him (generously offering to then fire him later, as a delayed but inevitable personal punishment for Barr disobediently [perhaps correctly?] saying that there was no election fraud).

Call it a "Shotgun approach" (fire many bullets generously, some will probably hit). Drain the swamp? What about creating a new, orange one?

I have been thinking about what I don't like about Trump: Recently an elder lady said in an interview that in 1930 already her parents said why they were against Hitler - Hitler only knew enemies, not friends.

That gets the point well and expresses it very clearly.

Trump even sees Europe and NATO as enemies and says that loud on a worse day. He's cheating at Golf even when playing solo. Instead of paying bills he prefers to sue the folks billing him. What about his compulsive lying (or perhaps living in an alternative reality universe)? He doesn't have a denture but alternative teeth? What about the glasses he is too vain to wear outside his tank? Or think of his demands of utter loyalty to him personally. Etc pp.

Call it a character defect or its absence. Call me old fashioned.

It's not all that different from the iirc 50+ trumpish charges against the 2020 election, managed by Giuliani and his motley crew. Of these so far iirc 49+ were dismissed with the courts saying very clearly that they were very implausible, straight BS or at best hearsay of hearsay. That's shooting the shotgun blind.

Also, that's a rotten success rate for a lawyer that should give a bad reputation to Giuliani and is not a proof of the "deep state". Sometimes such failure is just the result of piss poor and thoroughly unprofessional and sloppy work (for which Giuliani reportedly gets $ 20.000 [paid by taxpayer, phew!] per day).

CP-
You will be less confused if you learn that everything isn't a zero-sum equation.

confused ponderer, you sound like a confused mouthpiece for a dated agenda, and totally out of touch with main stream America. Welcome to the conversation.

I've had to give up watching much Tee Vee news. I feel that I am no longer living in the country in which I grew up when I watch news and commentary shows.

So...instead I've been binge-watching a channel called Grit. I get to see old (very old really) half-hour Westerns: Tales of Wells Fargo and Laramie, for example. I can also catch old John Wayne movies: True Grit and The Cowboys, so far.

I get to see a lot of nice horses, too. The bad guys always lose and get what's coming to them.

It's the only way I can cope.

Confused Ponderer:

Everything you don't like about Trump may be true but that doesn't make the Biden family clean.

Biden's two brothers and son Hunter have been making money off the Biden name for years. One of his brothers was in an accident that killed a man and for about 20 years he hasn't paid a nickel of the money he was ordered to pay the man's daughters. He has been protected by his brother, of course. This is all on the internet at legitimate websites including Politico and a profile of Hunter at the New Yorker.

After I read the Politico article I thought I would never want Biden as president; I was already sick of the Trump kids and I didn't want another round of family being involved in things they shouldn't be -- although the Biden clan luckily doesn't want an office at the White House, the similarities were too great. Now it looks like that is what we are going to get.

The Daily Mail says that the FBI is looking at brother James Biden. I feel pretty confident that it is for good reason.

"The business, Americore, ran rural hospitals and was raided by agents in January after entering bankruptcy. Politico reported that in the course of their investigation, the FBI has asked about James Biden's involvement in the business.

He has been described as its 'principal,' but has disputed that description and his role is the subject of litigation in at least two states. In one court case he was accused of dropping his brother's name to drum up business."

More on the James Biden-Americore hospital chain investigation, now covered by Breitbart too.
