Fortunate Son :: By Bill Wilson

In November 1969, Credence Clearwater Revival released the song “Fortunate Son.” Lead singer John Fogerty says the song was birthed out of extreme distrust of executive authority. The second verse reads:

“Some folks are born silver spoon in hand; Lord, don’t they help themselves, no; But when the taxman come’ to the door; Lord, the house lookin’ like a rummage sale, yeah.” And the chorus: “It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no senator’s son, son; It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one, no.”

Well, it may not be fortunate for you and me when the taxman comes a-knockin’ at the door, but for Joe Biden’s son Hunter, he got the IRS deal of the century. Slap on the wrist for income tax evasion. Go figure.

The Big Guy’s boy comes out as the fortunate son after the IRS completed its criminal investigation. Hunter copped a plea deal to avoid prison. A Justice Department letter confirmed that the fortunate son would be pleading guilty to two counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. Biden owed in excess of $200,000 on over $3 million income from 2017 and 2018. He also pled guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm. I wonder how that made the Big Guy feel given his strong desire to disarm every American citizen.

Court docs say there is a maximum sentence for each count of “12 months in prison, a fine of $100,000, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense, whichever is greater; 1 year of supervised release, restitution, a $25 special assessment, cost of prosecution.” That would be for you and me, not the fortunate son.

The fortunate son will be on probation and will not see the inside of a jail cell—money is the “cure all” for this case, and there is plenty of it to go around. The Washington Times reported on June 12 that a secret FBI memo involving a paid informant obtained by the Senate referred to Joe Biden as the “big guy.” It described Joe Biden receiving a $5 million-dollar bribe from an executive of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma in a payout scheme with a Chinese energy company. The communist Chinese company was to hold 10% of the profits for the “big guy.”

There are also, according to the FBI memo, over 15 audio recordings of phone calls between the Burisma executive, Hunter Biden, and the then-Vice President Joe “Big Guy” Biden.

Now, the “Big Guy” said that neither he nor his Administration would interfere with the investigation of the fortunate son. But two IRS whistleblowers came forward, one who was leading the IRS investigation, saying they were removed and threatened with criminal charges if they said anything about it. Their claim is that the fortunate son received preferential treatment from the investigators. Of course, the Justice Department declined to comment.

Proverbs 17:23 says, “A wicked man accepts a bribe behind the back to pervert the ways of justice.” They all can sing, “It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no senator’s son, son; It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one, no.” But we know better… it’s, say it with me… Stupidocrisy.
