As the evidence of impeachment-worthy Biden family corruption piles up, so do the absurd defenses mounted by Democrats and their media.
The Washington Post, which has not returned its ill-gotten Pulitzer for ginning up the false "Russian collusion" narrative against President Trump, is charging that the congressional inquiry into the Bidens is merely political gamesmanship.
"Republicans cheapen a vital power of the House," a Post editorial headline proclaimed Thursday. "Impeachment isn't supposed to be a partisan ritual."
Anyone familiar with how former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi conducted the two ridiculous impeachments of Mr. Trump can be forgiven for laughing out loud. We won't rehash it all here, but some of the lowlights were Democrats denying Mr. Trump counsel or counter witnesses, concocting the plot behind closed doors, bald-faced lying by then-House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, and the January 6th "hearings," which were essentially a Soviet show trial.
Democrats are famous for accusing others of what they themselves are doing, but it's gotten so bad that you have to blink a couple of times and shake your head. Do they really think people are this stupid that they can say this stuff with a straight face? Pity the White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. That poor woman has been called on to clean up more messes than a puppy owner.
How about Virginia House of Delegates Democrat candidate Susanna Gibson? The nurse-practitioner and married mother of two (pictured) has come under fire because she was performing explicit, live sex on an internet site and asking for "tips" based on particular acts.
When confronted, she lashed out at a Republican operative who had tipped off the Washington Post to her lucrative sideline. She called it "an illegal invasion of my privacy designed to humiliate me and my family."
Ah yes. The family. Her husband performed along with her at times. That is supposed to make it okay.
"My political opponents and their Republican allies have proven they're willing to commit a sex crime to attack me and my family because there's no line they won't cross to silence women when they speak up," emoted the proudly feminist Ms. Gibson, who is running in the suburban Richmond 57th District.
As a professional victim, Ms. Gibson would be perfect modeling a frock and bonnet from "The Handmaid's Tale." Her website lists her legislative priorities, the first of which is "protecting reproductive rights." She's a proud Planned Parenthood volunteer and her two biggest donors are the pro-abortion lobby Emily's List and the environmental group Clean Virginia Fund.
As for accusing her opponents of committing a "sex crime?" Talk about chutzpah. Making the videos public could violate the state's "revenge porn" law, her attorney explained. That's when someone releases private photos or videos in order to harm someone. There's nothing private about this.
Virginia Democrat state Sen. L. Louise Lucas (18th), came to Ms. Gibson's defense in an X tweet calling on voters to "make this the biggest fundraising day of (Gibson's) campaign." Some people retweeted with a link to donate to Gibson, according to the Associated Press.
Another Democrat, defense contractor Amanda Linton, told a reporter, "Anybody who looks at this knows it's a hit job." A $25 donor to Gibson's campaign, Ms. Linton lives outside the district but plans to donate another $100.
"It's just nobody's business," Linton said. "She didn't break any laws by doing this. She had sex with her husband. I mean, my God."
Does one really want to invoke God's name while defending public sex for money? This kind of thing makes you think of Thomas Jefferson's famous observation on the Northwest wall of the Jefferson Memorial:
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever."
Jefferson at the time was talking about slavery in his Notes on the State of Virginia (1784). But we know from the Bible that God is not indifferent to moral corruption, particularly of a sexual nature. Just ask Noah's neighbors or the people of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Anyway, getting back to the Biden drama, the Democrat media have upped their commitment to cover up the gravity of the whole thing. For weeks, they've been telling us that there is "no evidence" that Mr. Biden profited from Hunter's many overseas deals despite ample indication that the elder Biden is "the big guy" getting a 10% cut.
On Wednesday, the Post decided to double down with another "Republicans pounce" narrative:
"GOP lawmakers have claimed for years that Hunter Biden's alleged wrongdoing extends to efforts to use his father's name and influence to get lucrative business deals overseas." Well, yes. Corroborative testimony from Hunter's associates and millions in foreign-sourced deposits to 10 Biden family accounts nailed that long ago.
Nonetheless, the Post gamely insisted in its news story that "no concrete evidence has surfaced to support such theories."
Remember when there was zero evidence of Mr. Trump's guilt while the Washington Post and the New York Times were turning him on a spit like a barbecue main course?
Keeping in mind Mr. Jefferson's warning, the editors responsible might want to rethink their prior coverage and come clean on their Biden coverup. Confession is good for the soul.
