Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Chuck Grassley slammed the media Thursday for its hypocrisy in failing to investigate, refusing to publish the truth and cover-up the allegations against President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, who is now under an FBI criminal probe.
Moreover, the media wasn’t the only culprit. It is evident based on stories published in the media prior to the Nov. 3, general election that the intelligence community, in sync with social media tech platforms also repressed and censored stories that could have damaged Biden’s chances at the presidency.
Currently, President Donald Trump, along with 17 States in the Union, are fighting in the courts to expose what they allege is extreme election fraud that led to Biden’s victory. They are absolutely right in challenged the election and presenting the allegations of fraud by dozens of witnesses that volunteered during the election.
The nation is at a crossroads and it’s uncertain where we are headed.
Grassley didn’t hold back. As the former head of the Senate Judiciary Committee he is keenly aware of the false investigations against Trump by the FBI and the intelligence community during the past four years. He is also leading the charge, along with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., to investigate the litany of evidence against Hunter Biden and his business dealings with Ukraine, Russia and China.
“For over a year, Senator Johnson and I investigated the Biden family financial dealings,” said Grassley. “We found that they engaged in potential criminal financial deals across the globe, including China, which created counterintelligence concerns.”
Grassley noted that he made the work and findings public, “but the liberal media and Democrats chose to dismiss it. They even falsely claimed our work was Russian disinformation in order to protect the Biden’s.”
He said the same liberal outlets that disparaged “our investigation now report that Hunter Biden’s financial deals in China raised counterintelligence concerns.”
Moreover, said Grassley it was the Biden Transition Team on Wednesday that “confirmed that Hunter Biden is under criminal investigation for his taxes and financial dealings. It’s outrageous that the Fourth Estate would choose to ignore facts when they are uncovered by Republicans.”
“I don’t do oversight for the fun of it,” he said. “It’s serious business. It shouldn’t take subpoenas and confirmation from Hunter Biden himself to get the rest of the press to pay attention.”
The media isn’t doing its job and that’s apparent but it will be up to the American people to call them out and hold the media accountable because it is failing our republic.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
