Something has changed inside the Department of Justice, though it’s unclear exactly what might be going on under the covers. After years of stalling and obfuscation, doing everything possible to keep First Son Hunter Biden out of any legal trouble, the DOJ filed nine new charges against Hunter last night. None of them are trivial and three are quite serious. He was hit with three felony tax evasion charges and six related misdemeanors. The unpaid taxes add up to $1.4 million and they carry the potential of up to 17 years in prison. This is going to put Joe Biden in a very awkward position in short order and it comes at a time when many people in his inner circle are questioning whether he can carry the torch to another term in office next year. Is this all a coincidence, or is there something else taking place in the background? (Reuters)
Is it divine providence that has us gearing toward a race where both candidates have qualities that cancel each other out, leading to a base voter bloodbath? Trump is old; Biden is old. Yes, Trump is more vibrant and mentally sound, but he’s up there in age, too. There’s no getting around it. Both men are unpopular. And while Biden maybe can throw a few punches over Trump’s pending trials, his son is facing gun and income tax issues of his own, the latter leeching into the allegations of corruption and felonious activity from the Biden family’s lucrative government access operation.
