Hunter Biden has been a scandal that just keeps on giving for Joe Biden.

There were the millions of dollars he was given by Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, when Joe Biden was handling U.S.-Ukraine police for Barack Obama. And the scandal over how a prosecutor investigating the company was fired on Joe Biden’s orders.

Then there other payments from actual enemies of America overseas that came in to the family, apparently through channels run by Hunter Biden.

There were the scandalous drug- and booze-fueled events that appeared in a laptop computer Hunter Biden abandoned at a repair shop.

There were the unpaid taxes – millions of dollars. There was that episode where he claimed on a federal gun purchase form that he wasn’t addicted at the time of the buy, but then he later wrote in a book he WAS.

Now Hunter Biden has given an interview in which he, modestly, claims that the “future of democracy” depends on his … sobriety!

It is the New Yort Post that has outlined his extravagant claims.

“Well, at least he’s modest,” the report begins. “First son Hunter Biden said in a rare interview published Monday that him staying clean is vital because ‘I have something much bigger than even myself at stake.'”

He claimed, talking with Axios, that, “We are in the middle of a fight for the future of democracy.”

Democrats often have claimed that “democracy” is at stake in the 2024 presidential race which likely will be Joe Biden against President Donald Trump. Their claim then is that a Trump victory would be the “end” of democracy. And Hunter Biden apparently believes more scandalous behavior on his part would reflect poorly on Joe Biden.

However, Biden has issued executive orders, during his time in office so far, like an omnipotent, changing definitions of words and altering rules and regulations that, effectively, change the laws, without approval from Congress. He’s claimed to have “forgiven,” actually moved from borrowers’ shoulders to the taxpayers’, billions of dollars in student loans after the Supreme Court said he couldn’t.

Hunter Biden’s claim comes as the Supreme Court is considering whether the Biden administration’s collusion with social media companies to restrict opinions and speech about the 2020 election, on COVID, on vaccinations, and more, was legitimate, or a constitutional violation.

Hunter Biden claimed, “You have to believe that you’re worth the work, or you’ll never be able to get sober. But I often do think of the profound consequences of failure here.”

Hunter Biden continued, “Maybe it’s the ultimate test for a recovering addict — I don’t know. I have always been in awe of people who have stayed clean and sober through tragedies and obstacles few people ever face. They are my heroes, my inspiration.”

The White House repeatedly has excused Hunter Biden’s behaviors as the result of his addictions, trying to generate sympathy for apparently illegal actions, not condemnation.

The young Biden himself has used his addictions as a defense against federal indictments and a House impeachment investigation of his father.

He initially refused to comply with a House subpoena to testify on those issues, but later backtracked and promised to appear before the House at a transcribed interview.

Hunter Biden said he was “irresponsible with my finances” while under the influence.

And he claimed that was the basis for the impeachment inquiry and that’s “beyond absurd.”

In a story that has changed several times, his latest claims are that Joe Biden wasn’t “financially involved” in his overseas income, even though evidence suggests he might have been. There’s been repeated testimony from witnesses that Joe Biden was “the brand” that the family was selling to buyers in China, Russia, Mexico, Ukraine and more.

According to the Post reporting, “The House impeachment inquiry has produced bank records and testimony confirming that Hunter and James Biden introduced then-Vice President Joe Biden to several foreign associates before striking the lucrative deals.”

Hunter Biden said, in the interview, “I feel a responsibility to everyone struggling through their own recovery to succeed. I don’t care whether you’re 10 years sober, two years sober, two months sober or 200 years sober — your brain at some level is always telling you there’s still one answer. Embrace the state in which you came into recovery — which is that feeling of hopelessness which forces you into a choice.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
