The complete hypocrisy in the media's coverage of Hillary vs Republicans

How the media reacts to a story reveals a lot. When they don’t react, it speaks even louder. The day the Planned Parenthood video broke, no mainstream media outlet bothered to cover the story. It wasn’t until an entire day later that they begrudgingly began reporting on it. Now, from a media perspective, you’ve got shocking video. It’s undercover. There’s corruption. There’s murder. There’s no question that this has to be a must-cover story, but protecting the unborn isn’t high on the media’s priority list, so they ignored it.

But they wasted no my time leaping into action when Sandra Bland died in police custody after a routine traffic stop. That was labeled a suicide from the get-go, but the media refuse to accept that answer. Slate wrote about the history of the sheriff. USA Today wrote, “Sandra Bland laid to rest as questions arise.” Hillary Clinton blamed hard truths about race and justice. Listen.

VIDEO

Hillary Clinton: It’s heartbreaking to read about another death of a young woman, Sandra Bland, in Texas, another young African-American life cut short, and that’s why I think it is essential that we all stand up and say loudly and clearly yes, black lives matter. We all have a responsibility to face these hard truths about race injustice honestly and directly.

Oh yes, that’s what she’s all about, honestly and directly, whether it’s race injustice or her email or anything else. You know, the New York Times went deep into the history to try and prove a race narrative in the Sandra Bland case, “Texas County’s racial past is seen as a prelude to Sandra Bland’s death.” The research done here is notable. Significant staff and resources were assigned to the story. They had to further the media narrative that police are gunning down African-Americans for sport.

Immediately after the theater shooting in Louisiana, the media went into anti-Second Amendment mode right away. “Movie theater shooter’s mental problems didn’t stop gun buy.” NPR’s story, “Theater shooting highlights high rate of gun deaths in Louisiana.” Now, they wondered if a high rate of gun ownership was indeed the problem in the state. Oh yeah.

The next thing you know, the national media conversation morphed into a juvenile debate on should we have guns or not. I thought that debate had been settled since 1791, but these statists don’t want an armed citizenry, so naturally this is where the media angle veers towards after any shooting, even when there’s a much more compelling, significant storyline, like the tragic shooting in Chattanooga where four Marines and a sailor were senselessly murdered.

When the killer’s name was released, Mohammed Yousef Abdul Aziz, the media suddenly didn’t seem so vigorous in its research. There were no teams deployed, no extra staff digging into Mohammed’s life. There was a sort of aversion to labeling this a terrorist attack, an aversion that stretched all the way up to the White House.

The media found every opportunity to label him just a normal kid. The Washington Post said this wasn’t part of jihad but rather the work of an “aimless young man who came from a troubled home and struggled to hold down a job after college,” as if that isn’t the experience of millions of other American young American men who don’t shoot up military recruiting stations.

Federal investigators have dismissed the possibility of terrorism despite the fact that according to the New York Post, yep, not the Times or NPR, property records show the mosque Mohammed attended was affiliated with the same Islamic group as the mosques the Boston Marathon bombers went to and the hijackers who hit the Pentagon on 9/11.

The common link is the American Islamic Trust, who the DOJ named as a co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial. That led to several convictions of US-based Hamas terrorist leaders. Basically they were funneling money to terrorists in Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and radicalizing people here in the states. The evidence is ample. We’ll get into the details coming up in a few minutes.

They make media’s rush to settle for the troubled teen angle all the more head scratching. Equally head scratching is the media’s desire to coddle and protect Hillary Clinton. I mean, this is a woman who just roped off the media like cattle. You’d think they’d have an ax to grind. Apparently not. The media says Hillary’s email saga is too complex, and it’s really hard to understand. So, it’s basically not a scandal at all. For it to be a scandal, we need to make up catchy banners for it, and besides, we’re busy finding ways to get Donald Trump into the news cycle.

Then out of nowhere, the New York Times dropped a bombshell. They wandered, they strayed from the approved statist line and published an exclusive report about a potential criminal investigation into Hillary’s email account. They claim that two inspectors general had requested a criminal investigation into whether Hillary mishandled sensitive government information, and yes, emailing classifying info over your Yahoo or Gmail is definitely mishandling top-secret information.

So, it looked bad, and then Hillary Clinton’s team called up the New York Times and complained. And would you believe it, they gave in to every complaint and rewrote the article. Look, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the only possible reason to have a private email account as Secretary of State on which you are conducting your Secretary of State business is to do exactly what Hillary is doing right now, avoid and stave off any inquiries or investigations into wrongdoing. I mean, it’s so blatant even Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC conceded as much.

VIDEO

W: Is it possible Andrea, that the media analysts and others have underestimated the impact of this email situation on Hillary Clinton’s campaign?

Andrea Mitchell: I think so. Look, you have two inspectors general, and they are referring this to the Justice Department. Now, you can try to confuse it, and there’s been a lot of misdirection. There’s been inaccurate reporting significantly on Thursday night by the New York Times. It’s not a criminal referral, not at this stage. It could become, and it could become nothing. What they are suggesting is that there were classified—four out of the forty randomly selected had classified information, and it was not information that was later upgraded to be classified. It was information that was classified as “secret,” which is a level of classification at the time.

She admitted it but is still sort of meh about the whole thing. No one seems to be pointing out the gravity of the situation. I mean, here you have highly sensitive information being put at risk. Four out of forty randomly selected emails from Hillary’s private account had classified information—10%. Imagine what’s in the rest of the tens of thousands of emails, including all the ones she deleted, by the way.

During my time in the CIA, we were constantly reminded over and over again about what’s at stake with the protection of this sort of information, and we knew that there were very serious sanctions if you failed to protect classified. But Hillary’s flippantly out there on GChat or whatever spilling this stuff on unsecured networks. The media should be incensed, but Hillary Clinton herself in March said this:

VIDEO

Hillary Clinton: I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material, so I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.

Yes, that’s not true of, of course. That’s not true based on what we already know, but you see, if it’s not classified, it doesn’t mean that information is not classified. Classification is a process. The information has a sensitivity level, and that sensitivity level determines what the classification would be. So, if Hillary emails a pal what the nuclear codes are, even if she doesn’t write classified on it, it’s still classified. So, if she’s using her Gmail account to send all this stuff to people and not using any operational security whatsoever, just putting this out there on the open web, guess what, that information is still classified even if it doesn’t have a stamp that says top-secret at the top of it.

These are the sorts of inconsistencies that you would think would fuel the media skepticism on a story, and it might actually cause them to investigate it a little further. Look at the vigor with which the media went after other scandals involving very high-profile politicians. Chris Christie, how long have we had to deal with bridgegate? Scott Walker has a long-term investigation into those around him because of a convoluted series of allegations about how he’s moved money around and campaign coordination. Oh, they’ve got a name for this too, by the way, “Scott Walker’s dark money problem.” Ooh, spooky.

Rick Perry, of course, they opened an abuse of power investigation into him, but Hillary, when it comes to her, it’s complicated, depends on what your definition of classified is.

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."

If we learned nothing from the media over the past 4 years it's that colluding with a foreign entity to either win an election or for personal gain is absolutely grotesque. Well, that depends on whether you have a (D) or (R) before your name anyway. President Trump was impeached on rumor and innuendo yet Joe Biden has all but skated on his corruption up to this point.

Below is a timeline that shows the level of corruption and the lengths the Biden's went to in order to build that family's wealth and influence internationally.

2009

In 2009, Joe Biden was the brand-new Vice President and John Kerry was a U.S. Senator. Just five months after Joe was sworn in, his son Hunter, and Kerry's stepson, Christopher Heinz, formed an international private equity firm called Rosemont Capital. It had several different branches, including one called Rosemont Seneca Partners.

2010

Just nine months after Rosemont Seneca opened its doors, Hunter Biden went to China for meetings with executives from China's biggest banks, and its sovereign wealth and social security funds. That's unheard-of access for a brand-new firm. Was it just coincidence that at the same time Hunter was meeting these Chinese bigwigs, his dad was meeting with China's then-president Hu Jintao in Washington DC at a nuclear security summit?

2011

In May 2011, Joe Biden met with Chinese officials for the U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue conference in Washington. Just two weeks later, Hunter Biden went to Taiwan for meetings with the same Chinese financial giants he'd met in China in 2010, plus some new ones.

2013

By December 2013, Joe Biden was enjoying his second term as VP, and John Kerry was now Secretary of State. That's when Joe traveled to Beijing on an extended official trip and Hunter traveled with him on Air Force Two.

During their stay, Vice President Biden met with President Xi and Hunter was mostly out of sight. We don't know exactly what he was up to, but the deal finalized between Rosemont Seneca and the Bank of China just ten days after the Bidens' trip pretty much gives it away. The most powerful financial institution in China formed a joint venture with tiny Rosemont Seneca to create a giant new investment firm called Bohai Harvest RST – the "RS" stands for Rosemont Seneca.

The firm is often called "BHR" for short.

Hunter Biden was a member of the Board. Remember, the Bank of China is government-owned, which means its business is completely intertwined with the goals of the Chinese Communist Party. BHR also got the freedom to operate in the newly created Shanghai Free-Trade Zone where, over the next six years, it would use $2.5 billion of Chinese government money to invest in China, as well as in other countries, including the U.S.

During their Beijing trip, Hunter also introduced Jonathan Li to his dad. Li is Hunter's business partner – he's CEO and Director of BHR.

Hunter arranged for Joe to meet Li in the lobby of the hotel where they stayed during their Beijing trip.

2014

In 2014, one of BHR's first major investments was in the China General Nuclear Power Corporation.

CGN is a Chinese government-owned nuclear power company that sold off a stake of the company to outside investors. Problem is, CGN was under FBI investigation for paying informants in the U.S. to steal nuclear secrets.

In 2016, the FBI arrested the ringleader of this nuclear espionage, a man named Allen Ho.

When they arrested Ho, he was using a random code generator to access funds being provided to him from – where else? – the Bank of China.

Yet while this FBI probe was going on, the son of the Vice President owned a stake in the company being investigated. And even after arrests were made, Rosemont Seneca did not alter its relationship with BHR, nor did it divest from CGN, even though it was stealing U.S. nuclear secrets.

2015

In 2015, BHR partnered with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to buy an American company called Henniges for $600 million.

AVIC is a gigantic military contractor in China – think Lockheed Martin – that makes fighter jets, bombers and drones. BHR bought 49% of Henniges and AVIC bought 51%.

Henniges is a precision parts manufacturer specializing in anti-vibration technology. The stuff they make is known as "dual use" by the U.S. State Department, which means the technology can also have a military application.

Because of that, the deal had to be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) since it could have national security implications. The thing is, the American side of BHR – meaning Hunter Biden and his pals – had to know there were serious national security implications with AVIC.

The year before they formed a partnership with AVIC, the Wall Street Journal reported how AVIC stole technology related to the U.S. Air Force's F-35 stealth fighter and used it in its own stealth fighter for the Chinese.

How the Committee on Foreign Investment approved that deal remains a mystery. CFIUS does not publicly disclose any information regarding its decisions. Their findings are not publicly announced.

Interesting that China accounted for the largest share – with 74 transactions – approved by CFIUS during Obama's second term (2013-2015).

Under the umbrella of Rosemont Capital was a real estate company called Rosemont Realty. In 2015, a Chinese company called Gemini Investments bought a 75% stake in Rosemont Realty. The company was renamed Gemini Rosemont

Gemini brought $3 billion to the partnership with Rosemont, with the aim of buying "Class A institutional-quality commercial office properties in U.S. markets."

Red flag (literally) – Gemini Investments is a subsidiary of the China Ocean Shipping Company, a.k.a., "COSCO."

COSCO is a Chinese government-owned company. Its headquarters in Beijing is actually next to the headquarters of the Bank of China. COSCO is well-known for its close military ties. It's essentially a branch of the Chinese Navy.

2017

In 2017, BHR invested in Face++. That's the facial recognition phone app built by a Chinese company that is incorporated in a separate app built by the Chinese government. Police in the Xinjiang [Sin-jong] region of China use that app to keep tabs on citizens, and track and detain Uiguhr [Wee-ger] Muslims.

The app allows police easy access to data about Chinese Muslims including things like religious activity, blood type, and even the amount of electricity they use.

2018

In March 2018, a spokesman (Chris Bastardi) for Christopher Heinz (John Kerry's stepson) emailed The Hill to say that Heinz had "no operating role" in Rosemont Seneca, and that he was not involved in any of Rosemont's deals in China (which contradicts Schweizer's report in his book Secret Empires).

Chris Heinz was involved in Rosemont Capital. Rosemont Seneca was established under the same GP as Rosemont Capital, but Chris Heinz had no operating role in it. Chris and his family have no financial interest or investment in Bohai Harvest RST, he has never traveled to China, and he has never met with the firm's Chinese management team or investors.

2019

In October 2019, Hunter Biden's lawyer, George Mesires, said Hunter did not conduct any business on that 2013 trip to Beijing with his Dad.

Mesires said the timing of BHR's business license getting approved was purely coincidental because the paperwork had been submitted months before the Bidens' China trip.

According to Hunter's lawyer, the approval " was not related in any way, shape or form to Hunter's visit."

Hunter Biden finally stepped down from the BHR board last October (2019), but he DID NOT give up his 10% stake in the company.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"
