The News Media’s Stunning Lack of Curiosity About Who Got Searched and Who Got Served In The Ongoing Hunter Biden Federal Criminal Investigation


Ok it’s been SIX DAYS since…THIS was dropped on the heads of all the people who’ve been oh-so-confidently telling the rest of us that the Hunter Biden criminal investigation died long ago, assuming it was ever real at all. Politico published this on July 16.

Upon learning that since the election was over, the US Attorney handling the Hunter Biden criminal investigation has been executing search warrants, on top of the federal grand jury he seated issuing subpoenas, every investigative reporter out there in America did…what?
Why, nothing.
They did nothing.
It appears every single investigative reporter in the mainstream media wasn’t even slightly curious exactly who it is in and around the Biden family that had these search warrants executed on them, or got served with these federal grand jury subpoenas. A federal criminal probe that involves the family currently occupying The White House.


Get Your Curiosity On

You know who is curious about who got the knock on the door and opened it up to find federal agents on their door step executing a search warrant related to the Hunter Biden laptop? Who also wants to know who received these subpoenas from the grand jury about Hunter Bidens business, tax and money laundering escapades? ME. I do. I want to know.

Behold! A fat guy in Texas wanting to know stuff! 

But I’m just a fat guy in South Texas. I don’t have the resources or the connections in DC or Delaware to do the gumshoe stuff in the area that would be required to thoroughly investigate this. But what I want you to focus on right now is that all the mainstream media outlets out there who do have the resources haven’t said one thing about their efforts to look into this, to find out who got these search warrants or subpoenas.

They just found out 6 days ago that a federal criminal investigation of The Biden Crime Family is very much alive, and that search warrants have been going out, and a grand jury has been issuing subpoenas. Why aren’t they all over this?

This is a huge story.

Joe Biden and his family and their associates are the targets of a federal criminal investigation. And nobody in the mainstream media wants to cover it. The same media people who’ve been looking for, praying for, striving for just such a federal criminal probe targeting the Trump family for half a decade so far.
Isn’t that…strange?

Do you remember watching all these same media people hyperventilate and practically have an orgasm over every fake leak or fake scandal that was launched against the Trump family? Because I do.

Conservative Media Is Also Ignoring This Huge Story

Now, we have a problem on our side of the media aisle. I’m very well aware that the entire time I was telling you the Biden Crime Family federal investigation was still going, you had plenty of people in the Conservative media telling you the exact opposite. Their pride and their refusal to admit they were wrong is what is keeping them from pursuing this huge scandal. Same as the liberal media. Who likes to admit they were wrong?

Conservative media people who insisted the Hunter Biden investigation was really ended long ago don’t have all that much enthusiasm for pursuing a story about a US Attorney in Delaware seating a grand jury and putting out search warrants and subpoenas targeting the Biden family & their business associates over the past couple of months because they spent those past couple of months telling you none of this was happening.

And a huge ego bruising would be involved in suddenly having to admit they must change course right now and turn around 180 degrees and tell their audience that something they confidently told them for more than seven months was not happening…was happening after all.

But here’s the thing: If you let your emotions and your desire for popularity dictate how you cover the news, you’re in the wrong business and you better quit and go do something else.


The Biden Crime Family federal investigation being alive and well and issuing search warrants and subpoenas is a huge story. If somebody is avoiding it, they’re not doing their job.

Here’s me, since the election, doing my job and asking questions about the Biden Crime Family investigation  . I wrote this column for the Epoch Times in late January of this year.

By that time the Conservative news media consensus was that the Biden Crime Family federal investigation was deader than Elvis.

And again,  doing my job in March of this year:

And still on the job in April 2021:

How I Know The Biden Crime Family & Durham Investigations Aren’t Being Run By Political Partisans

Because I, like all the other reporters out there, already saw during Trump’s candidacy and his presidency exactly how a politicized federal investigation staffed by political partisans is run. The FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane and the Mueller Special Counsel gave us an extensive education in exactly how such investigations are conducted.
What are the two big footprints of a political federal investigation being run by partisans?


First, a politicized federal investigation run by political partisans engages in frequent leaking, much of which subsequently turns out to be fake. The Crossfire Hurricane FBI team used a strategy of strategic leaking to place people like Donald Trump, General Flynn, Carter Page, Paul Manafort and others under a cloud of suspicion of being Russian agents. After creating the suspicion of nefarious activity on behalf of the targets through their own surreptitious leaks to the news media, the corrupt federal officials then moved to open investigations. A most circular practice and highly effective.

Then on taking over for the Crossfire Hurricane Team, the Mueller Special Counsel leaked early and often for almost 2 years, seeding the news media with fake stories about how Mueller was supposedly finding tons of evidence and the walls were closing in on Donald Trump, etc. And none o those leaks were based on anything real.


Second, a politicized federal investigation run by partisans is later exposed as being riddled with errors and fraud and illegal conduct. This is true of the Crossfire Hurricane team and the Mueller Special Counsel, both of which are currently targets of the Durham Special Counsel investigation.

 “Wait, did you just say I’m being **what** by **who**??!!” [total silence]

The Completely Different Nature of the Biden/SpyGate Investigations

Now having explained to you the essential and obvious natures of the Crossfire Hurricane and Mueller Special Counsel federal investigations, allow me to point out how both the Durham Special Counsel and the Hunter Biden investigation have a completely different nature.

While the Crossfire Hurricane team and the Mueller Special Counsel’s Office leaked often, peppering the news media weekly with new fake stories on a regular basis, Durham hasn’t leaked one damn thing since he started in April of 2017 and neither has the US Attorney or the FBI people involved in the Biden Crime Family probe, who started their own probe in 2018.

While the work of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane team and the Mueller team have been proven to have been riddled with fraud, fakery and violations of the law, nobody has even been able to come up with a single allegation that anybody involved in the Durham or the Biden Crime Family investigations have faked or frauded their way to anything.

In fact, we already have seen a great deal of the evidence upon which the Durham Special Counsel investigation of the Crossfire Hurricane team and the Muller SCO is based on.

We’ve seen the declassified documents.

We’ve seen the DOJ Inspector General’s reports.

We’ve seen some of the laptop contents.

We have a Senate Report full of evidence about the Biden families shady business activities.

Far from being based on fraud or fakery, the evidence driving the Durham Special Counsel and the Biden Crime Family probe are very real. The work is top notch.

If it were true that the Durham Special Counsel’s Office had political partisans in it, and if the Biden Crime Family investigative team had political partisans in it, they would have been leaking years ago.

You’d see stories with anonymous federal agents saying stuff like  “Why are we still here? There’s nothing here! We’re 3 years into this, we’re wasting our time!”  Have you seen any stories with “persons familiar with the matter” saying anything like that to NBC News?

Of course, you haven’t. There are no leaks. The best people were put in charge of this. By somebody who knew who to pick for such a sensitive undertaking. Somebody made sure of that.

And every time I tell people who I suspect it was, nobody seems to believe me.

Ah well.
I can wait to be right.

And I’m going to be proven right.

And you can quote me on that.
