Concerning the recent concessions from the Usurper Regime’s media handmaidens about the legitimacy of the Hunter Biden laptop, people of all political leanings are asking “Why now?” After a year and a half of nonstop denials, deflections, and dissimulations, why are they ‘fessing up’ now? The questions and speculations are widespread. For example, consider this Robert Spencer article:
After stories of Hunter Biden, his laptop from hell, and his massive web of shady dealings were ignored until Old Joe Biden was safely installed as pseudo-president of the United States and long after that as well, suddenly the Hunter Biden stories are everywhere. And so it must be asked: why now? Why has the establishment media, which has long been definitively established as a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, suddenly decided that Hunter Biden actually exists after all, and is a very, very big problem?
From the headlines we’re seeing these days, it’s as if Steve Bannon has taken over all the major media outlets. The New York Times started the ball rolling with a March 16 story in which the Gray Lady actually admitted the existence of Hunter’s laptop. That just opened the floodgates: “Inside Hunter Biden’s multimillion-dollar deals with a Chinese energy company,” was an actual Washington Post headline Wednesday. On the same day, Hunter’s dirty dealings made CBS News and, of all places, MSNBC.
As my Gentle Readers might imagine, I have my own take on it.
“It’s not what you know; it’s who you know.” — Old maxim.
“It’s not who you know, it’s what you’ve got on ‘em.” — mystery writer Lawrence Block.
Joe Biden, the first openly “installed not elected” president of these United States, was selected for his “electability.” That is, in the eyes of the Democrat Party’s strategists, his political appeal was deemed adequate, and his negatives weren’t openly disqualifying. They could deal effectively enough with his history of plagiarism, deceit, and self-aggrandizement. They could fan-dance around his racism and his less dramatic public missteps. All the other aspirants were deemed too dangerous, or lacking credibility for what the Democrats had planned: the theft of the White House by any means necessary. So they chose him as the front man for the November 2020 electoral coup.
But Barack Obama warned them in no uncertain terms: “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.” So the party’s bigwigs made sure that they would retain a means for getting rid of Biden. They probably tried to impress upon him that his tenure in the Oval Office would depend upon “good behavior.” Plainly, his behavior hasn’t been good enough. So that means — the evidence of Biden family corruption that reaches all the way to the top — has been pulled out, dusted off, and handed to the Democrats’ handmaidens in the media. The laptop is the central element in that array.
This behavior is characteristic of oligarchical Establishments: No one, however highly placed, is permitted to be immune to control. The Soviets learned that lesson from their experiences with two autocrats who proved to be beyond control: Stalin and Brezhnev. The first experience shook them. The second convinced them that no Party Secretary or Premier must ever again be allowed free rein. All must be subject to some sort of kill switch. (Whether such a mechanism is being held over the head of Vladimir Putin is unclear, but then, the Russian “republic” is a relatively new development – completely new to Russia.)
Biden was useful; now he’s a liability. And once the Democrats’ strategists figure out how to deal with the looming debacle of Kamala Harris, they will remove him from the White House. The end in view is plain; all that remains undetermined is the means.
Surely we can expect a flood of exculpations from other major Democrat figures who’ve supported Biden. No one will want to be tarred with the brush of an aborted Democrat presidency. It will all be lies. But then, lying with aplomb is a skill long cultivated and meticulously polished by the Democrats.
