Now we know for certain: the diary, like the laptop, is real — and its contents are alarming.

So why isn’t the media all over this?

In 2019, Ashley Biden, the then 37-year-old daughter of President Biden and his wife Jill, wrote in her journal about showering with her father at an inappropriate age as well as her fears that, as a child, she was sexually abused.

Explosive stuff. Not that you would have heard about it, thanks to a near-complete, years-long media blackout.

After undergoing treatment in rehab, Ashley moved to a halfway house in Florida, where she left the diary under a mattress.

The diary, which also contained details of her drug use, was then found in 2020 by a Florida woman who stole it, leaked its contents online, and sold it for $40,000.

All that time, the Biden campaign let the left-wing media, of its own volition, cast aspersions on the diary’s authenticity, or dismiss it as a right-wing plant of dubious veracity, another Russia hoax. Just as with Hunter Biden‘s laptop.

Turns out both are all too real.

For the first time, Ashley herself has now confirmed – in a court document made public last month – that the diary is indeed authentic.

Its contents demand attention, concern and hard questions for this White House.

‘Hyper-sexualized @ a young age,’ Ashley writes in a July 2019 entry. ‘What is this due to? Was I molested. I think so —’

Note the period instead of a question mark. One wonders if there wasn’t really a doubt in Ashley’s mind.

She continues: ‘I can’t remember specifics but I do remember trauma… I remember somewhat being sexualized with [her first cousin] Caroline; I remember having sex with friends @ a young age; showers w/ my dad (probably not appropriate); being turned on when I wasn’t suppose [sic] to be.’

Showers with my dad.

Ashley also wrote, in the same diary, that she was in treatment for ‘sexual trauma’.

Let’s pause here to state the obvious: If this were the diary entry of a Trump daughter, the media would be at DEFCON 1. This would be front-page news, the sole focus of special Rachel Maddow furrowed-brow editions, MSNBC and CNN primetime investigations, the incessant drumbeat of every Sunday show and op-ed from now until election day, the left-wing press demanding answers.

But rather than do its job without fear or favor, the vast majority of the media — which has adjudged Donald Trump as everything from a racist to a rapist, and never fails to regurgitate accusations, no matter how old or inconsistent — has conveniently ignored similar allegations against Joe Biden (more on those later).

Last month, the New York Times reported that the woman who stole Ashley’s diary was sentenced to time in prison.

Did the Times cover what was actually in the diary? Not one bit. Not even a hint of its incendiary contents.

Instead, they led with the thief’s ‘brazen scheme to steal the diary of President Biden’s daughter and sell it to a right-wing group in the hope of disrupting the 2020 election’.

Linked within this story was a letter written by Ashley, who in fairness has never asserted the diary was a fake (unlike Hunter and his laptop).

Her letter, dated April 8 and addressed to the trial judge, confirms the diary’s legitimacy.

‘My personal private journal,’ she writes, ‘was stolen and sold for profit… I will forever have to deal with the fact that my personal journal can be viewed online.’

The theft is indeed terrible. But so, too, is what Ashley’s diary entries might imply.

In one passage, she writes that her childhood ‘hyper-sexualization’ extended to ‘beating my vagina due to overhearing parents having sex’.

And yet the New York Times, as with nearly all things negative to Biden, insists there’s nothing to see here and that they’re covering Biden as critically as Trump. HA!

In an interview earlier this month, executive editor Joe Kahn claimed that his paper is not and will not be ‘an instrument of the Biden campaign’.

Kahn is either delusional, shameless, or cowed by the wokery infesting his newsroom.

Try Googling ‘Ashley Biden’s diary’. You’ll find scant media coverage, and what you do find will be about the theft, not the diary itself.

You know: The actual news.

In trying to determine the root causes of her sex addiction, Ashley lists the following:

‘ — my mother not emotionally available’

‘— my father was — message — I could get love from men.’

‘— “I’m not your mother”‘

‘— Blanket being taken away’

‘— Not letting myself go to bathroom’

‘— Being wiped until too late in the game’

While this list itself isn’t necessarily the most cogent passage from the diary, collectively this all raises serious questions for Dr. Jill and Grandpa Joe, with his repeated hair-sniffing and shoulder-rubbing of women and young girls.

Joe, with the multiple allegations, by at least eight women, of unwanted touching or worse.

Here’s his former senate staffer Tara Reade, largely dismissed by the media during the 2020 election cycle, in March of that year:

‘I remember he just had me up against the wall and the wall was cold. It happened all at once. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes… he went down my skirt but then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers…when he got finished doing what he was doing and I pulled back and he said, “Come on, man. I heard you liked me”.’

Reade continues: ‘For me it was like everything, everything shattered in that moment. I looked up to him . . . he was this champion of women’s rights in my eyes.’

That’s what they used to say about the late Democratic senator Ted Kennedy: Iffy with women in his personal life, but great at legislating for them.

Biden has denied Reade’s allegations. A New York Times report found that Reade told two friends and her brother about details of the alleged assault before she revealed it publicly, but no other former Biden staff members could corroborate her claims.

As for some other claims of inappropriate touching, Biden has blamed shifting cultural mores — as if it’s ever been OK.

‘The boundaries of personal space have been reset’, Biden said in 2019 non-apology apology. ‘And I get it. I get it’.

Does he?

At this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, we were made to endure a veritable tongue bath from host Colin Jost, who turned to Biden and said, ‘You’re a decent man… decency is why we’re all here tonight.’

Please. How would Jost feel about Biden coming up behind, say, his own wife Scarlett Johansson and sniffing her hair, rubbing her shoulders, whispering God knows what in her ear?

Would Jost call Ashley’s recollections of ‘showers with my dad’ decent?

The whole family has long carried the stench of perversion.

Joe’s brother Frank posted naked selfies on a gay porn site — which Frank, in a break with Biden family tradition, immediately admitted were real.

Then there’s Hunter’s penchant for crack-fueled sex with prostitutes, his dead brother’s widow and her sister, as well as four of his own employees, at least one of whom he seemed to pressure into sexual activity.

‘I will make up for back pay’, Hunter texted one young female staffer, who had asked why she hadn’t received her salary and why her health insurance was no longer working.

Hunter then sent her $500 via ApplePay and texted: ‘When can you FaceTime? If we [Facetime] the rule has to be no talk of anything but sex and we must be naked and we have to do whatever the other person asks within reason.’

And, of course, there’s also the stripper Hunter had a child with, the little girl the entire Biden family once refused to acknowledge.

This is all newsworthy. Yet as of this writing, Ashley Biden’s legitimized diary is being ignored, much as Hunter’s laptop was.

The first presidential debate is scheduled for June 27, 2024.

Which moderator will have the guts to do their job and ask Joe Biden the number one question of the moment: What is the truth about Ashley’s claims of your showers with her — or her fears that, as a child, she was molested?
