CENTRAL VIEW for Monday, May 15, 2023

by William Hamilton, Ph.D.

Interesting affairs; Then, and now

Hunter Biden is not the first person to accept bribes of foreign money designed to influence U.S. government policy. History records the misadventures of Citizen Edmond-Charles GenÍt (1763-1824). In 1793, GenÍt, was appointed as the Gerondist’s French Ambassador to the fledgling United States. But GenÍt did not go directly to President Washington to present his credentials. Instead, GenÍt went first to South Carolina where GenÍt spent time bribing American sailors and soldiers to help France fight against Britain and Spain. A total violation of U.S. neutrality policy.

When GenÍt’s interference was uncovered, President Washington, even without the benefit of today’s Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), declared GenÍt persona non grata, ordering GenÍt back to France. But, by then, the Gerondins had been replaced by the Montagnards who would have beheaded the disgraced GenÍt on arrival in France. So, even though D.C. had yet to become a sanctuary district, President Washington granted asylum to Citizen GenÍt. **

Fast forward to today, where the House Oversight Committee is finding evidence that Hunter Biden arranged for the Biden family to receive and hide over $10 million in payments from Romanian and Chinese interests. Hunter Biden and his associates created 20 complicated LLCs that accepted payments from $5,000 to $3 million dollars, then distributing the money to nine Biden family members. The distributions are substantiated by actual bank records dated while Joe Biden* was U.S. Vice President. As yet, no one knows what kind of businesses the Biden family was in, if any.

In addition to multiple violations of the FARA, the Biden family may be in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Garland is having Hunter Biden investigated for crimes less serious than RICO and FARA, crimes that could be pled down to fines and no jail time. Moreover, the FBI is withholding documents that a whistleblower says would tie Joe Biden* even more closely to Hunter Biden’s money-laundering schemes. Satire: Whatever the House Oversight Committee uncovers, it is without question that the Biden family is one of America’s most interesting families and it might be said that the head of the Biden Clan is the World’s Most Interesting President.

One might imagine Joe Biden* sitting with some beautiful, sniff-haired young women regaling them with stories like the actor who sold beer on TV as the World’s Most Interesting Man. Tales such as: I don’t always play a Tranny on TV. But, when I do, I always drink, well, ... you know. I don’t always drain our Strategic Oil Reserve. But, when I do, I buy Arab oil to refill it. I don’t always rig elections. But, when I do, I prefer mail-in ballots. I don’t always cover up my son’s illegal acts. But, when I do, I count on the FBI. I don’t always sabotage military recruiting goals. But, when I do, I prefer Tranny Adverts. I don’t always throw open U.S. borders. But, when I do, I prefer the one with Mexico. Satire ends.

* Election disputed

** GenÍt’s great-grandson served with the Lafayette Escadrille in France and was the first French-American pilot to die in World War I.
