Four years after Hunter Biden’s daughter Navy Joan Roberts was born, President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden finally acknowledged her as their seventh grandchild.
“This is not a political issue, it’s a family matter,” Biden said in a press release printed by People Magazine on Friday. “Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy.”
Corporate media rushed to celebrate the first family’s claim as a “so there” to Republicans who have criticized the president for deliberately ignoring Hunter Biden’s fourth daughter. What the propaganda press failed to mention, however, is that there’s no indication the Bidens seriously intend to begin a relationship with the little girl they and the entire Democrat Party have gone out of their way to avoid.
If Navy was truly recognized by the Bidens as a beloved grandchild, she would have received the benefits of being a Biden by now, like meeting her “Pop” or at least being privy to one of the patriarch’s famous once-a-day phone calls.
To the six grandchildren he accepted from birth, Biden appears to be a good grandfather. He brings them to Camp David for Mario Kart tournaments, attends their sporting events, and reportedly drops any and all important business to answer their calls.
Joe and Jill even hung stockings for their publicly acknowledged grandkids in the White House and hosted granddaughter Naomi Biden’s wedding on the South Lawn.
Navy, however, has never experienced any of that. Instead of watching fireworks with her dad and half-siblings from the White House balcony, the blonde preschooler is living out the harsh reality that she has never come face-to-face with her dad or her presidential granddad.
Familial love and quality time aren’t the only things Hunter’s second youngest is missing out on. Unlike other Biden family members, Navy doesn’t appear to have ever directly profited from the international pay-to-play scheme the Bidens are implicated in, involving some of America’s top foreign adversaries.
Bank records obtained by House Republicans show members of the Biden family received at least $10 million worth of diluted payments from foreign companies during and after Joe’s tenure as vice president. These payments were deposited in a smattering of Biden bank accounts within weeks of significant political action by Joe in the country of the transactions’ origins.
Despite having no formal experience or education that would qualify them to receive payments from foreign energy companies or “legal fees,” at least one of Biden’s previously recognized grandchildren profited from this arrangement. Several other family Biden members including Hunter, Joe’s brother James and his wife, Hunter’s ex-girlfriend who is also his brother Beau Biden’s widow, Hunter’s ex-wife, Hunter’s current wife, and a couple of nieces and/or nephews also received funds.
Navy’s mother Lunden had some knowledge about the Bidens’ bribery scheme. In court papers filed against Hunter in 2019, she told the youngest Biden son to confess he “received money from a Chinese person, entity or corporation for foreign (meaning international) and domestic (meaning United States) investment purposes.” She also demanded that he say how much the Ukrainian energy company Burisma paid him to sit on the board.
Less than one year after Lunden’s demands were filed, Joe lied from the presidential debate stage that “My son has not made money in terms of this thing about — what are you talking about — China.”
Lunden later testified about Hunter’s unseemly finances to a grand jury in conjunction with an investigation by the Delaware U.S. attorney’s office — the same office that buried Biden bribery allegations during its scandal-plagued probe of Hunter.
Evidence uncovered later, both from Hunter’s abandoned “laptop from hell” and by Republican investigators, supported Lunden’s allegations that the Bidens accepted money from Ukrainian and Chinese Communist Party-linked businessmen and also indicated that the money was paid in exchange for political favors from then-VP Joe.
The Bidens claimed in their overdue statement that Hunter and Navy’s mom “are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward.” Yet, Joe and Jill have done nothing but enable Hunter’s repeated claims that Navy is not his daughter and that Lunden was lying about his sexual and financial shenanigans.
With no regard for the damage their cruel neglect and denials will likely cause Navy as she grows older, the Bidens will keep sidelining her unless it becomes politically profitable to do otherwise.
