• Can You Say, ‘Backfire’? Media’s Smear of Trump/Ukraine Turning Into Massive Biden Scandal

    Surge Summary: The Democrats’ and Leftist Media’s attempts to fuel impeachment efforts against Donald Trump over the Ukraine scandal is suddenly threatening to flair into a massive scandal against former Vice-President Joe Biden over his previous, questionalbe involvement with the Ukrainian government. 

    Democratic presidential candidate — and former Vice President to President Barack Obama — Joe Biden admitted on a video tape that he threatened the nation of the Ukraine that the Obama administration would withhold foreign aid from the Ukrainian government if they did not fire a prosecutor who was conducting a corruption probe of a company in which Biden’s son Hunter Biden was a top executive. Biden is seen and heard laughing when he told his audience that the SOB was fired.  Yet, the news media, the Democrats in both houses of Congress, and left-wing activists couldn’t care less about Biden’s misdeeds and instead have decided to use the Ukraine-Biden Scandal to go after an impeachment inquiry to remove Trump from Office.

    While the far-left Democrats are seen smiling more on Tuesday news shows on CNN, MSNBC and other networks and stations, there are some in America’s newsrooms who believe once again pushing for Trump’s ouster will prove to be a losing proposition for the Democratic Party than it is helping Democratic Party presidential candidates and lawmakers destroy the Trump presidency and rollback the successes that Americans are enjoying.  The call for impeachment is a call for higher taxes, higher unemployment, a dilapidated, ill-equipped military, a nation without borders, and many other anti-American programs.

    With very few reporters following the Biden-Ukraine shenanigans, the news media is claiming that Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky over the summer to investigate allegations that former VP Joe Biden used his influence during his time in office to help his son, Hunter Biden, land a profitable financial deal in Ukraine. In other words, instead of Obama looking into allegations of misconduct or out-and-out crime in the Trump campaign, Trump was actually involved in a real investigation of Biden’s corruption and that is why Democrats want him impeached, according to former military intelligence commander and police captain, Joseph Mara.

    Although the Democrats are crying, “FOUL,” Trump’s pressuring of Zelensky was the legal advice of one of his top attorneys, “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani, who has been trying to get to the bottom of the allegations which are actually several months old:

    “In particular, Biden threatened — on behalf of the Obama administration — then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that the U.S. would withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees if Kiev didn’t fire a prosecutor who was looking into alleged widespread corruption involving “the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member,” According to John Solomon, a Fox News contributor and columnist for The Hill.

    “Even though Joe Biden claimed that “not a single credible media outlet” gave any credence at all to the allegations that he ran interference on behalf of his son, the video montage that the president tweeted out tells a very different story — not that we expect Biden to be honest about anything, said Solomon during his appearance on The Hannity Show.

    Hunter Biden, at the time, was being paid tens of thousands of dollars a month by the gas firm to ‘consult’ — as a board member, the media reported.  While what’s become known as the fake news ignored the Bidens’ Ukrainian shenanigans for about five years, suddenly it has been contorted into an impeachable offense by President Donald Trump.

    The scandal story began as an intelligence community “whistleblower” claiming that Trump made pledges to the Ukrainian leader that were not appropriate. But now, we have since learned that the president’s conversation was indeed about reopening the probe into the gas company and into the Bidens’ involvement, and that there was no quid pro quo arrangement, as Democrats and their media allies claim.

    And now, the president is using the power of his office and social media presence to expose the Biden-Biden scandal story big time.

    “The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, want to stay as far away as possible from the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money, so they fabricate a story about me and a perfectly fine and routine conversation I had with the new President of the Ukraine,” Trump said on Twitter.

    “Nothing was said that was in any way wrong, but Biden’s demand, on the other hand, was a complete and total disaster. The Fake News knows this but doesn’t want to report!” Trump added on Twitter.
