Despite Joe Biden's Promises, Hunter Is Still in Bed With the Chinese Government

Throughout the Trump administration, the media had an unhealthy obsession with the unfounded and largely fabricated narrative that the Trumps were only in it for the money. Despite the entirety of the Trump fortune being placed in a trust, under which President Trump had no control, the media continued to insist that Trump’s entire goal was to enrich his children through connections made while serving as President.
Meanwhile, while the media was foaming at the mouth at attempts to down Trump, they ignored the mountain of evidence that surfaced that Hunter Biden not only was enriched by his father’s Vice Presidential connections but likely used US Government resources to do so. Before the 2020 election, we (RedState’s now-Managing Editor Jennifer Van Laar and myself) reported extensively on Hunter Biden’s business dealings in both China and Ukraine, which was widely rejected by the MSM as “propaganda,” never mind the fact that the entirety of RedState’s reporting was based upon prior MSM reporting, US Government public records, as well as Chinese government records that showed Hunter Biden firms that were in partnerships with Chinese government-owned agencies.
Oftentimes these business dealings were inherent threats to national security, like Hunter’s assistance with the purchase of Henniges, a US manufacturer that made stealth technology used on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. That purchase was approved by the CFIUS, a committee that approves foreign investment in the US and required Executive Branch sign-off as a portion of their approval process.
BHR’s dealings tied Hunter to people like Chris Heinz (John Kerry’s stepson), Devon Archer (later convicted of fraud for other business dealings), and James Bulger (nephew of the former mob boss, Whitey Bulger).
