New Report from Inside Biden Camp Reveals Concerning Degree to Which Hunter and Jill Are Pulling the Strings


Information continues to pour out of President Joe Biden’s inner circle about how it is handling his catastrophic debate performance against former President Donald Trump at CNN’s studios in Atlanta on Thursday.

While some prominent Democrats and left-wing media personalities understand the blow that was dealt to Biden’s re-election prospects, a New York Times report on Sunday indicated the president’s family remains insistent that he stay in the race.

After Thursday, Biden and his family — wife Jill and son Hunter included — convened at Camp David in Maryland to discuss what steps the president should take with the November election now only about four months away, the report said.

An anonymous source told the Times that Hunter Biden was among the most outspoken and insistent that he remain in the race.

“Hunter Biden wants Americans to see the version of his father that he knows — scrappy and in command of the facts — rather than the stumbling, aging president Americans saw on Thursday night,” the report said.

While sources told the Times that some family members were upset with Biden’s staff for their handling of his debate preparations, it said the first lady was not among them.

Readers may recall footage seen after Thursday’s debate had concluded where Jill Biden had to lead the president away from the podium and later congratulated him, saying he “answered every question” and “knew all the facts.”

On Friday, the couple attended a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina where the first lady said Biden’s “optimism is undaunted” and “his strength is unshakeable” as the president — looking very confused and every bit of 81 years old — stood behind her.

Conservative media personality Tomi Lahren shared the video on X and wrote, “Jill Biden is evil for this.”

If anything, the Times’ anonymous sources from Camp David confirmed about the first lady what we’ve seen from her when the cameras are on.

Jill Biden wants her husband to stay in this race to use him as a proxy to run the country.

Meanwhile, Hunter Biden wants his father back in the White House for his own reasons — perhaps including a pardon for his alleged crimes. (The president has claimed he wouldn’t do that.)

While families close to presidents undoubtedly have always had their sway, this is not how the executive office is supposed to function.

The American people did not elect Jill Biden in 2020.

They wouldn’t dream of choosing Hunter Biden.

We can say with confidence that President Biden is not in charge, but sources from Camp David point toward his wife and son.

Is Jill Biden in control of the White House?

There is no discernable reason otherwise for their insistence on his remaining in the race at this point.

They don’t want the president to remain in the race for the betterment of our country — only for themselves.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,
