Consider the pounding Trump got on the false “Russia, Russia, Russia” media meme
Now think of how little uproar has occurred now that Yellen says Chinese customers of failed Silicon Valley Bank will get money from U.S. fund
Washington Times notes how uninsured Chinese depositors to the failed Silicon Valley Bank will have their entire losses covered through Biden’s “special” assessment for that and the other Democrat cash cow.
Uninsured Chinese depositors in the failed Silicon Valley Bank likely will be made whole through the special assessment on U.S. banks that is funding the rescue crafted by the Biden administration, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told lawmakers Thursday.
Meanwhile, some of the nation’s largest banks teamed up to rescue another beleaguered California lender, First Republic Bank, by providing $30 billion in deposits.
Several members of the Senate Finance Committee criticized the government’s emergency intervention in SVB last week.
Sen. James Lankford, Oklahoma Republican, pressed Ms. Yellen on whether community banks in his state would be reimbursing Chinese citizens and companies that held accounts at the California bank. He cited public reporting that some Chinese investors in SVB have ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
“Will my banks in Oklahoma pay a special assessment to be able to make Chinese investors whole from Silicon Valley Bank?” he asked.
Ms. Yellen replied: “Uninsured investors will be made whole in that bank. I suppose that could include foreign depositors, but I don’t believe there’s any legal basis to discriminate among [the] uninsured.”
With evident sarcasm, Mr. Lankford noted that the administration had promised that U.S. taxpayers wouldn’t pay for the bank bailout.
“I’m sure my bankers are going to be very excited to know they are no longer paying taxes and their banks no longer pay taxes,” he said. “All banks make their revenue off of rates and fees and such to their account holders, which means every Oklahoman will pay higher fees in their community banks.”

When Biden has been receiving monies from Ukraine and China, why must America send billions to Ukraine in China?
If you have been paying attention to everything Dementia Joe wants you to forget, the Biden clan has been receiving money (from Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian, and other foreign sources), you know that up to seven Biden family members have received money. Could this be part of the payback?
If you heard what Yellen was saying, this is not only a bailout of American billionaires. It also bails out wealthy Chinese. Who knows, maybe even some of the ones that finance the “Big Guy.”
Additionally, consider the minor bit of attention paid when former First Lady and Former Secretary of State Clinton paid a fine for lying about the Steele dossier
When the origin of “Russia, Russia, Russia” was discovered, Hillary only had to pay a fine (as reported by the New York Post).
The Federal Election Commission has fined both Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee for lying about how they spent money used to fund the now-debunked Steele dossier on former President Donald Trump.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC will be forced to pay $8,000 and $105,000 respectively for mislabeling payments that ultimately went to Fusion GPS, the consulting firm that commissioned the dossier, according to FEC documents viewed by the Post.
The fines stem from a complaint originally filed in 2018 by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which was informed of the outcome on Tuesday.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC paid more than $1 million combined to powerful Democratic law firm Perkins Coie, which engaged Fusion GPS to dig for dirt on Trump. Fusion GPS, in turn, hired former British spy Christopher Steele — whose namesake dossier included allegations that Russian security services possessed a tape of Trump in a Moscow hotel room with prostitutes who were supposedly urinating on a bed where the Obamas had previously stayed.
The FEC said Clinton and the DNC claimed the money given to Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS was reported on disclosure forms as having gone toward “legal advice and services” rather than opposition research.

Let’s not forget the example of President Skinny Pants and his record-setting fine to the
The US News and World Report told us of the time Obama was fined for hiding donors and keeping illegal donations while only having to pay a fine (albeit a record-breaking fine to the FEC).
Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating federal disclosure laws, Politico reports.
An FEC audit of Obama for America’s 2008 records found the committee failed to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and dragged its feet in refunding millions more in excess contributions.
The resulting fine, one of the largest ever handed down by the FEC, is the result of a failure to disclose or improperly disclosing thousands of contributions to Obama for America during the then-senator’s 2008 presidential run, documents show.
The FEC says the Obama campaign failed to disclose the sources of 1,300 large donations, which together accounted for nearly $1.9 million. Election Commission rules state campaigns must report donations of $1,000 or more within 20 days of Election Day.
Obama for America was also fined for “untimely resolution of excessive contributions,” according to the conciliation agreement, FEC says. The campaign accepted more than $1.3 million in contributions that came from donors who had already given $46,000—the maximum allowed by FEC rules. The campaign eventually refunded the excess cash but did not do so within the 60-day window allotted for resolving such cases, FEC said.
In addition to failing to report big donors and excess donations in a timely manner, the Obama campaign incorrectly dated the filings dealing with $85 million in funds, the FEC claims. This error appears to have been primarily the result of one transfer to the campaign committee from the Obama Victory Fund, a fundraising group that includes money raised by the Democratic National Committee that is earmarked for the presidential race.

Now think about Biden and the newest discoveries
Comer says “6 or 7 Biden family members” may have been involved in overseas business schemes
The New York Post lets us know of Representative James Comer’s investigation into the Biden influence-for-sale scheme.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer believes that more than half a dozen members of the Biden clan may have been involved in various worldwide business schemes that profited off their family name.
Comer, whose committee is investigating the Biden family’s business dealings, shared the insight in a Wednesday night interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“At the end of this I think we’re gonna see there are probably six or seven Biden family members that were involved in various business schemes around the world,” Comer (R-Ky.) told Ingraham, referring to his panel’s far-reaching probe.
Comer didn’t mention any names in the interview and declined to reveal the identity of the unnamed Biden family member who got proceeds from a $3 million wire to Hunter Biden associate John “Rob” Walker just weeks after Joe Biden left the vice presidency in 2017.
The Oversight Committee chairman first revealed on Monday that bank records obtained via subpoena implicate three Bidens, including one that’s “never before been identified” as being involved in the family’s alleged influence-peddling operation.
“So this just shows how deep the Biden family was involved in this influence peddling scheme,” Comer told Ingraham, adding that it remains unclear what the $3 million transaction was for.
“It looks to me like these people, who are closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party, sent $3 million to a shell corporation then they turned around and split it three ways with a third going to the Biden family – three different family members for no apparent reason,” Comer said.
“They didn’t invest it in a business. They just, it appears, stuck it in their pocket,” he added.

If bribery is illegal, this should also be illegal
If Joe’s actions before coming to the Oval Office don’t trigger some legal action (in response to where he used government monies to force the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor that was going after Hunter’s actions at Burisma), then there is no working law enforcement in America. We have become a banana republic.
Likewise, if Joe’s classified documents (gathered while he was vice president and had no authority to have or declassify them) don’t trigger some legal repercussions, there is no equality under the law.
6 thoughts on “Consider how differently the press treats this liberal regime when it comes to imagined versus real failings”
Note that I have not commented one whit on the charges being brough against Trump by the New York District Attorney. The reason for this is that I cannot see anything of substance in the purported charges. I am not going to write a blog post based on a liberal idiot’s tweet when that liberal idiot is tweeting to deceive or does not know what they are talking about.
And yes, I know that I should not apply the term “idiot” to one of God’s creation. However, even in God’s eyss, sometimes the title of “fool” is earned.
However, regarding the yet-poorly-defined charges against Trump, the Democrats in the media keep maintaining (and the New York Post corroborates) that Biden does not want Trump indicted.
I call a B***S*** on that. With the coordinated erection of barriers in New York and Washington (along with this happening just as news starts to come out on the Biden family corruption, I call a big political distraction.
Reblogged this on Citizen Tom and commented:
I have not been writing about the bank failures or the reports coming out of the House Oversight Committee about the money the Bidens received from the Chinese Communists. Instead, I have been writing on other subjects. So, I thought I would link to a blog that is talking about these things.
Why is it important we do this? The so-called mainstream news media wants to talk about anything else but these subjects.
Are they even getting close?
1. The New York Times is doing an expose on House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer. =>https://news.yahoo.com/comer-republicans-investigative-chief-embraces-120120578.html
2. Even though Comer has been doing numerous interviews with the news media, not hiding anything, CNN would have us believe House Oversight Chairman James Comer has quietly subpoenaed Bank of America asking for records relating to three of Hunter Biden’s business associates. =>https://www.cnn.com/2023/03/13/politics/hunter-biden-associates-bank-records-subpoena/index.html.
3. ABC has much the same as CNN. => https://abcnews.go.com/US/oversight-committee-probes-hunter-biden-raskin-accuses-chair/story?id=97824630
So, we have to tell our family, friends, and neighbors that it is very likely that our president been taking bribes from foreign governments.

I do get the impression that Biden is dumping as much dirty laundry out there as to overwhelm those of us who try to keep up.

I think he just has a lot of dirty laundry. These people are crooked, not especially smart. A few are better at hiding their crimes, but not Biden.
