In more breaking news from the New York Post, emails reveal that Hunter Biden frequently covered family expenses, and reports dating from Joe Biden’s time as Vice President are getting specific.

On June 5, 2010, an email to Hunter from partner Eric Schwerin titled “JRB Bills” (Joseph Robinette Biden), detailed expenses on the VP’s palatial, Kennedy-esque lakefront home –- pictured at the link below –- in the wealthy Greenville enclave of Wilmington, Delaware. For a breakdown of some of these maintenance expenses, you can go to the NY Post story –- we apologize again for the creepy Hunter pictures.

As the Post has previously reported, a January 2019 email from Hunter to his daughter Naomi said, “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

So even though we don’t have the actual bank transfers, we get the idea here that Hunter was induced to give something like 50 percent of his earnings to his dad. That might have been the drugs talking, but the grand jury will sort it out.

Schwerin, president of Hunter’s firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, said five days later that he had received Joe Biden’s “Delaware tax refund check,” which suggests the finances were intermingled, though another email suggests Joe sometimes paid his son back.

But here’s something that sounds potentially even worse: In an email to Hunter dated July 6, 2010, titled “JRB Future Memo,” Schwerin said, “Your dad just called me [about his mortgage]...He could use some positive news about his future earnings potential.” Why would Joe be wanting to talk to Hunter about that?

There’s other intriguing correspondence as well. One sample from May 2018 that was reported by the NY Post has to do with an accidental transfer of $25,000 to an escort named “Gulnora” during a drug-and-alcohol binge. This transaction triggered a visit from the Secret Service, suggesting that it was done from an account he shared with his father. Hunter received a series of texts from a former Secret Service agent who was trying to get him to come out of his room, reminding him that “this is linked to Celtic’s account.”

“Celtic” was Joe Biden’s code name with the Secret Service when he was VP.

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, spoke with Maria Bartiromo on “Fox News Sunday” about the intermingling of the Biden family finances.

He also spoke about the media’s sudden turn to sort-of covering the Hunter Biden story. It should be obvious by now that somebody flipped a switch to tell the mainstream media, “Okay, it’s time to start picking up on the laptop story.”

The switch is metaphorical, of course, but all it took was The New York Times getting a signal from somewhere that, given that indictments were likely to come down soon, this was the time to get ahead of the story and present the best possible spin. They were late to the party, but it does look as though the Delaware grand jury assigned to Hunter’s case started without them.

By the way, that NY Post story also includes some quotes from Valerie Biden Owens, Hunter’s aunt Val, who sympathizes with Hunter for his struggle with drugs and, in true enabler fashion, places no responsibility whatsoever on him for the scandal enveloping the Bidens now. Why should she, when she can (surprise) blame Trump and his supporters? After an “ugly, degrading” campaign, she said, “Trump and his right-wing followers have continued to do whatever they can to discredit the family and therefore to bring Joe down.” I’m sure that if Trump’s family had been similarly accused, the left would have respected their privacy and backed off. Kidding, of course.

“Aunt Val” happens to have a new book coming out Tuesday, called “GROWING UP BIDEN: A Memoir.” In the book, she compares the Biden family to the John F. Kennedy family. You know, we can kind of see it, but not in the way she means.

This weekend, Trey Gowdy, on his show “Sunday Night In America,” discussed the hesitancy of the media to cover the Hunter story with Howard Kurtz, who hosts the FOX News show “Media Buzz,” and let’s just say he disagreed with Aunt Val. Most news organizations minimized, or even mocked, the New York Post story, he recalled, leading into the 2020 election. Twitter blocked the sharing of the story, and the NY Post’s account was suspended, an incredible step.

Kurtz gave the media “one clap” for finally coming around and “advancing the story in certain ways”; I give them nothing, not even a one-handed clap.. In fact, I give them a “turn your back and walk away.” As I’ve said, by treating this very real story as fake news, they interfered with the 2020 election and very likely changed the outcome.

After the Post came out with their story, then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe was vocal about the laptop NOT being “Russian disinformation.” The media preferred the lies of California Rep. Adam Schiff, however, and got on board with his false “Russia” narrative. They wanted Trump out of office, and this was just the way to discredit something that they saw as helpful to him. They knew: this story is so serious and far-reaching that Biden wouldn’t have been elected to anything if the vast majority of people had known what it was about.

Some in the media are still dismissive –- recall our story last week about Anne Applebaum at The Atlantic –- but as Kurtz said, they’re afraid “they’ll wake up one morning and the grand jury in Delaware may have indicted Hunter Biden, on charges of either tax evasion or illegal lobbying or money laundering...” They don’t want to look “really bad” if that happens. But it’s too late for that. We all know what their coverage would’ve been like all along if this were about Trump’s family.

“It just amounts to media malpractice,” Kurtz said.

So, to get to the main point: who pulled the switch and got the mainstream media in gear on this story? Our thought is that it’s none other than former President Obama pulling the strings. Here’s a must-read article by Andrea Widburg in American Thinker that will tell you why we so strongly suspect this.

Widburg even explains the three steps in which Obama could use Biden’s problems to regain the presidency on a technicality. In a nutshell: The 22nd Amendment to Constitution doesn’t say the President can’t have more than two terms --- it says he can’t be “elected” to more than two terms. Get Kamala out of the VP spot, appoint Barack Obama to fill it, and oust Joe Biden via the 25th Amendment (or, I would add, his forced resignation over the Biden family scandal). Obama could choose his own VP and would then have a couple of years to lock in the “fundamental transformation” he didn’t quite get done during his first two terms.

So watch out for moves in this direction.

Retired CIA operations officer Sam Faddis has more information on the two men who apparently fooled at least four Secret Service agents --- one of whom had been on the First Lady’s security detail --- into believing they were working for the Department of Homeland Security.

(Incidentally, it was Faddis who also reported the discovery of Hunter Biden’s laptop having Defense Department encryption keys on his laptop, “which,” he tweeted, “may have allowed him to create fake email accounts and run his [communications] through DOD servers. Slick. And very, very illegal.”)

And now, back to our regularly scheduled story.

Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Sher-Ali, 35, were arrested last Wednesday at a luxury apartment complex called Crossing in the high-end Navy Yard neighborhood of southeast Washington DC and charged with impersonating HHS officials. They had told the Secret Service agents that they were investigating events related to January 6, and they managed to fool them for at least 18 months, plying them with extravagant gifts.

According to Faddis, the management at the apartment complex bought the line that they were government agents and had allowed them to live there rent-free. Amazingly, the two men had even wangled access to apartment surveillance cameras and access codes to all doors. From all appearances, they were surveilling residents of the building. As we reported last week, the raid on their apartment turned up quite a collection of weapons, as well as a binder that contained a list of all the residents in the building.

Regarding that, we have more information concerning what we wondered most about when the story broke: the names on that list. Not surprisingly, residents include federal agents (real ones), individuals who worked at the White House, and congressional aides and advisers. So, who were these guys there to spy on?

Sher-Ali claimed to be a Pakistani intelligence officer and held visas for both Pakistan and Iran. Taherzadeh, who may be an American citizen, reportedly told investigators he didn’t know the source of their funding and that Sher-Ali was paying for everything. In the months before impersonating an HHS agent, Sher-Ali had traveled to Pakistan, Turkey, Iran and Qatar, including multiple stopovers in Doha.

The men used fake websites, and, as we reported last week, recruited at least one man to be “trained” as an agent. How the Secret Service agents were taken in will be another matter for investigation; they are all on leave and “are restricted from accessing Secret Service facilities, equipment and systems,” according to a Secret Service statement. In their defense, the imposters did make it look good; they reportedly carried the kind of handguns used by U.S. law enforcement, drove official-looking black SUVs with emergency lights, and --- big heads up, folks --- demonstrated to them that they had secure access to what appeared to be DHS computer systems.

The charge of impersonating a government officer could be expanded to include conspiracy, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

To quote Faddis: “It is too early to determine what all of this means, but the arrests come against the backdrop of repeated Iranian threats to assassinate former President Donald Trump and numerous other American officials,” particularly Mike Pompeo, in retaliation for the U.S. air strike that took out Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Gen. Qassem Soleimani, a little over two years ago.

Faddis says that American officials are reportedly investigating these two men as perhaps working on behalf of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as part of an effort to kill U.S. officials on U.S. soil.

The Daily Mail also has done some solid reporting.

Ironically, this story is developing just as Biden is on the verge of signing a new and even more disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, with part of it, reportedly, being to lift sanctions on the IRGC and remove its designation as a terrorist group. Never mind that it most definitely IS a terrorist group. Goodness knows, living at a time when the government can’t even define what a “woman” is, we can’t expect it to be able to define what a “terrorist” is. As Humpty Dumpty once said, “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean --- neither more nor less.”

As for the Iran deal, Benjamin Netanyahu has plenty to say about the dangers, but whoever is pulling the strings at the White House isn't listening.

I grew up faithfully watching the Mickey Mouse Club on our black & white TV and singing along with the opening and closing songs. I knew all the Mouseketeers by name and probably had a crush on the girl Mouseketeers like Annette Funicello. On Sunday nights my family watched Disney’s Wonderful World of Color, although I never saw it in color. Color TV wouldn’t be something my family had until I was in high school. There wasn’t a Disney World in Florida back then—just a Disneyland in California, and I dreamed that someday I’d get to go there. The Disney brand was magic and Walt Disney was like everyone’s favorite uncle who was rich and had all the cool stuff. The Disney movies were dependably wholesome, family-friendly, and had a moral lesson embedded in the plot. Parents knew that their kids could see a Disney film and be entertained without being embarrassed or indoctrinated.

Just a few years back, we took our entire family to Disney World. Sure, it was mostly about taking the grandkids there and making sure they were indulged to the hilt.

But the wonderful family-friendly company that Walt Disney founded is gone, replaced by creepy corporate executives who have lost their minds and will likely lose a lot of their customers. They certainly have lost me.

Disney executives have outright lied about the Florida legislation that prohibits government schools from teaching sexual content to pre-schoolers and young elementary children. What person in his or her right mind want 4 year old children to be taught about homosexuality, transgenderism, and sexual expression? Disney execs repeated the utterly debunked lie that the bill was a “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Such language was nowhere in the bill. But it gets worse. In a conference call, other Disney leaders expressed the goal that in future Disney movies, at least half of all the characters in a film with be gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender, queer, or something other than heterosexual.

And theme parks will be forbidden to say “hello boys and girls” and instead will be required to say “welcome dreamers and friends.” And no more will little girls be called princess when they show up in a gown. I guess boys could be a princess under the new perverted Disney code. Who knows?

This is so outrageous it’s hard to believe that the Disney company has become such a purveyor of soft-porn and woke-ism so that instead of entertaining children with fantasy and magic, Disney’s new model is sexual fantasy, outright betrayal and rejection of traditional values of marriage and gender, and instead of moral neutrality, Disney has opted for immoral advocacy.

Will their remake of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs be called The Nymphomaniac and the 7 Male Prostitutes? Will Lady and the Tramp be re-named “The Lesbian and the Housing Challenged Non-gendered Animal?” Will Beauty and the Beast be renamed “The Bi-Sexual and the Child Predator?” And Swiss Family Robinson will now be about a dysfunctional family that becomes homeless and lives in a local park after wrecking their VW hippie van.

I simply refuse to believe that this dishonesty and insanity from Disney represents what American parents and grandparents want to purchase for their children. But the only way to push back against this filth is to find other products and places when you purchase entertainment for your family.

This is no longer about party politics. A clear majority of Florida Democrats support the law prohibiting schools from indoctrinating 4 and 5 year old children about various sexual agendas that are probably NOT the agendas of parents. I guess the small number of people supporting the perverted version of a public school will next want to trade in yellow school buses for white, windowless utility vans typically called “kidnapper vans” since that is pretty much the direction Disney is taking with your children.

I am old enough to remember when parents would say, “Sure, you can watch that movie. It’s a Disney movie so it will be safe.” Not anymore! This ain’t kid’s stuff. And I for one don’t want to enrich the people that have destroyed the Magic Kingdom and turned it into the Perverted Palace. Mickey shouldn’t be the face of Disney anymore. The Disney character most representative of the company would be GOOFY!
