Biden Crime Syndicate Election Meddling 2020

Yesterday I became aware of a New York newspaper with the fourth largest circulation in the USA broke a story implicating Hunter and Quid Pro Joe Biden directly to political corruption for monetary gain. I also became aware Twitter and Facebook began a Social Media censorship campaign to block the info from spreading publicly to favor the election of Biden Crime Syndicate head to the Office of President of the United States in the November 3, 2020 election cycle.

 

I also learned the so-called Mainstream Media (MSM) – TV news networks & print outlets – refused to report on the breaking news initially. THEN the MSM began a campaign to smear the NY Post as disseminating tabloid news. Can you imagine that? A respected news paper with the fourth highest print circulation in the USA is suddenly a tabloid news outlet on the scale of gossip rags such as the National Enquirer or Mother Jones?

 

Due Dem-Marxist Party propaganda machine in this election meddling censorship, I have a strong suspicious will be censored by Big Tech controlled Social Platforms (for example – Facebook jail might be in my future).

 

The existence of this story about Biden crimes might actually demonstrate the ironic difference between the old Clinton Crime Syndicate and the Biden Crime Syndicate. People with dirt on the Clintons die under mysterious and suspicious circumstances (mysterious suicides, no perpetrator murders, etc.). Biden Crime Syndicate idiots leave a paper trail or forgotten laptops.

 

An interesting fact is the FBI had the Hunter laptop long before the NY Post broke this story. To date I have heard the coverup line that goes something like the FBI at this time can neither confirm or deny the authenticity of the files on the laptop alleged to belong to Hunter Biden. Further marking the degeneration of the FBI as corrupt Federal police organization under the control of the Deep State bureaucracy/Dem-Marxist Party.

 

AND SO I am cross posting info that points to the NY Post and Hunter Biden’s laptop that also incriminates Quid Pro Joe Biden.

Emails reveal how Hunter Biden tried to cash in big on behalf of family with Chinese firm

 

Hunter Biden Money Emails

Hunter Biden pursued lucrative deals involving China’s largest private energy company — including one that he said would be “interesting for me and my family,” emails obtained by The Post show.

 

One email sent to Biden on May 13, 2017, with the subject line “Expectations,” included details of “remuneration packages” for six people involved in an unspecified business venture.

 

Biden was identified as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” an apparent reference to the former Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.

 

His pay was pegged at “850” and the email also noted that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.”

 

In addition, the email outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Biden.

The deal also listed “10 Jim” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”

 

Neither Jim nor the “big guy” was identified further.

 

The email’s author, James Gilliar of the international consulting firm J2cR, also noted, “I am happy to raise any detail with Zang if there is [sic] shortfalls?”

 

“Zang” is an apparent reference to Zang Jian Jun, the former executive director of CEFC China.

 

The email is contained in a trove of data that the owner of a computer repair shop in Delaware said was recovered from a MacBook Pro laptop that was dropped off in April 2019 and never retrieved.

 

The computer was seized by the FBI, and a copy of its contents made by the shop owner shared with The Post this week by former Mayor Rudy ­Giuliani.

Another email — sent by Biden as part of an Aug. 2, 2017, chain — involved a deal he struck with the since-vanished chairman of CEFC, Ye Jianming, for half-ownership of a holding company that was expected to provide Biden with more than $10 million a year.

 

Ye, who had ties to the Chinese military and intelligence service, hasn’t been seen since being taken into custody by Chinese authorities in early 2018, and CEFC went bankrupt earlier this year, according to reports.

 

Biden wrote that Ye had sweetened the terms of an earlier, three-year consulting contract with CEFC that was to pay him $10 million annually “for introductions alone.”

 

“The chairman changed that deal after we me[t] in MIAMI TO A MUCH MORE LASTING AND LUCRATIVE ARRANGEMENT to create a holding company 50% percent [sic] owned by ME and 50% owned by him,” Biden wrote.

 

Biden-LUCRATIVE-ARRANGEMENT email

 

“Consulting fees is one piece of our income stream but the reason this proposal by the chairman was so much more interesting to me and my family is that we would also be partners inn [sic] the equity and profits of the JV’s [joint venture’s] investments.”

 

A photo dated Aug. 1, 2017, shows a handwritten flowchart of the ownership of “Hudson West” split 50/50 between two entities ultimately controlled by Hunter Biden and someone identified as “Chairman.”

 

This is the flow chart

Hunter Biden Flow Chart – Chairman

 

According to a report on Biden’s overseas business dealings released last month by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a company called Hudson West III opened a line of credit in September 2017.

 

Credit cards issued against the account were used by Hunter, his uncle James Biden and James’ wife, Sara Biden, to purchase more than $100,000 “worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants,” the report said.

 

The company has since been dissolved, and Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco PC, was one of two owners, according to the report.

 

Biden’s email was sent to Gongwen Dong, whom the Wall Street Journal in October 2018 tied to the purchase by Ye-linked companies of two luxury Manhattan apartments that cost a total on $83 million.

 

Dong, who owns a sprawling mansion in Great Neck, LI, has been identified in reports as CFO of the Kam Fei Group, an investment firm based in Hong Kong.

The documents obtained by The Post also include an “Attorney Engagement Letter” executed in September 2017 in which one of Ye’s top lieutenants, former Hong Kong government official Chi Ping Patrick Ho, agreed to pay Biden a $1 million retainer for “Counsel to matters related to US law and advice pertaining to the hiring and legal analysis of any US Law Firm or Lawyer.”

 

In December 2018, a Manhattan federal jury convicted Ho in two schemes to pay $3 million in bribes to high-ranking government officials in Africa for oil rights in Chad and lucrative business deals in Uganda.

Ho served a three-year prison sentence and was deported to Hong Kong in June.

 

Neither Biden’s lawyer, the Joe Biden campaign, Gilliar, Dong nor Ho’s lawyers returned requests for comment, but Biden’s lawyer has previously said, “There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani.

 

“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” lawyer George Mesires added.

Tucker Carlson: The Joe Biden story Twitter and Facebook don’t want you to read

Big Tech prevents the public from reading the news and makes no apology for it.

 

By Tucker Carlson

October 15, 2020

Fox News

 

Fox News VIDEO: Tucker: Emails show Hunter Biden sold access to his father’s office

Editor’s Note: This article is adapted from Tucker Carlson’s opening commentary on the Oct. 14, 2020 edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

 

Most of us never imagined it could happen in this country, and yet Wednesday, it did happen.

 

A major American newspaper published a story, apparently an entirely accurate story, about a presidential candidate. The tech monopolies that control American media feared this story might hurt that candidate, whom they favor. So three weeks before a national election, they shut the whole thing down.

 

They prevented the public from reading the news. They didn’t apologize for doing this. They didn’t bother to make up reasonable-sounding justifications for it. They just did it, exactly as the Chinese government does. These are monopolies. They have all the power, you have none. They don’t have to care about what you think and they don’t.

 

This was mass censorship on a scale that America has never experienced in 245 years, and it’s a threat to all of us. Democracies only function when there is a free exchange of information between citizens. We no longer have that.

 

This is a dark moment. Here are the details:

 

Wednesday morning, the New York Post published a series of emails that describe Hunter Biden’s lucrative relationship with a Ukrainian energy company called Burisma, and then describe how his father, then the vice president of the United States, intervened to help his son peddle influence.

 

Now, we’ve known the outlines of this story for quite some time. But these emails add damning detail. No one appears to dispute that they’re real, not even the Joe Biden campaign. There are whispers that it’s all part of a Russian disinformation campaign. If this is a hoax, it is the most complex, sophisticated hoax ever perpetrated. It doesn’t seem possible. There’s too much detail.

 

These e-mails came from an Apple laptop that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop last year and then abandoned there. After a certain number of days with no payment, the shop’s owner took legal possession of the laptop. When he looked inside, he found tens of thousands of emails, including exchanges with representatives of foreign companies and foreign governments. The laptop apparently belonged to Hunter Biden.

The shop owner was stunned by this, by the appearance of corruption, and he was afraid for his family. So late last year, he gave the laptop to the FBI and kept a copy of the hard drive for himself. He never heard back from the FBI. By May, he was anxious. So he made overtures to Senator Mike Lee’s office and at least one conservative nonprofit, but no one responded. Finally, the man contacted Rudy Giuliani’s office. And Wednesday’s story is the result of that.

 

The tech monopolies crushed the story the moment it appeared. An executive at Facebook called Andy Stone, a former Democratic staffer, announced that his company would censor the New York Post story. As he put it, Facebook would be “reducing its distribution on our platform.”

 

Twitter quickly followed suit by locking the New York Post’s entire Twitter account. One of the biggest newspapers in the world was banned from Twitter, which then prevented its users from sharing the story, both privately and publicly. Those who tried to share it got this message: “Your tweet couldn’t be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”

 

In a separate explanation, Twitter wrote this: “We don’t permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking that contains private information, may put people in physical harm or danger, or contains trade secrets.”

That’s the same Twitter that just promoted a New York Times story about the president’s private tax returns, obviously obtained illegally. And who, by the way, was hacked here? No one was hacked. Twitter never addressed that. As for “trade secrets,” there were none. We already knew that Hunter Biden was trading on his father’s office to make $50,000 a month from the Ukrainians. In October, he admitted it.

 

So we knew the outlines. What we didn’t know until Wednesday was how brazen this was. Hunter Biden didn’t simply sell access to his father, the vice president, or take cash to influence American foreign policy. It’s weirder than that.

 

As he schemed to extract more money from Burisma, Biden didn’t refer to his father as his father. He referred to Joe Biden, the vice president, as “my guy.” On April 13, 2014, for example, Hunter Biden wrote to his business partner, “The announcement of my guy’s upcoming travels should be characterized as part of our advice and thinking.” Hunter Biden added that he needed to be “protected financially” and wanted a long term role with Burisma: “The contract should begin now – not after the upcoming visit of my guy. That should include a retainer in the range of 25k”.

 

It’s not clear if Biden got that retainer. But we know he did get a high-paying job at Burisma. Then in May 2014, just weeks after Hunter Biden joined the board of that company, a top executive there let him know explicitly why he was being paid: “We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message/signal, etc., to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions.”

 

EMAILS TO HUNTER BIDEN SHOW PLANS TO MEET WITH STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS ABOUT BURISMA PROBE

 

What message does that mean? Well, another e-mail from the same executive obtained by The New York Post and dated April 17, 2015, explains in very clear terms what it means.

 

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC [sic] and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”

 

That’s what you’re not allowed to read. And you can see why Facebook and Twitter don’t want to allow you to read it. If Joe Biden met with Burisma executives at the request of his son for the profit of his own family, it becomes very clear that Joe Biden’s previous denials were lies. Just last year, Joe Biden was telling us he had no idea what his son was doing it for Burisma.

 

You’ll remember that back in 2018, Joe Biden explained that he got the top prosecutor in Ukraine fired. That prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, said he was planning to investigate Burisma when he was stripped of his job. Here’s how Joe Biden explained/bragged about how he canned Viktor Shokin.

 

FLASHBACK: EX-UKRAINE PROSECUTOR SAYS HE WAS TOLD TO BACK OFF PROBE OF BIDEN-LINKED FIRM, FILES SHOW

 

BIDEN, speaking in January 2018: I had gotten a commitment from [then-Ukraine President Petro] Poroshenko and from [then-Prime Minister Arseniy] Yatseniuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor, and they didn’t … They were walking out to the press conference and I said … ‘We’re not going to give you the billion dollars.’ They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president, the president said –‘ I said, ‘Call him.’ I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here’ — I think it was what, six hours? … I said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours and if the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.

 

Why is the vice president of the United States firing prosecutors in Ukraine? Pause for a moment and ask yourself that. That’s bizarre behavior. It doesn’t help the United States in any way. Why was he doing that at the time?

 

Biden’s handlers deny there’s anything wrong with this. They just said Shokin was corrupt and somehow the world was benefitting by Shokin getting fired. Biden didn’t explain how he’d benefit from that. But, of course, Joe Biden didn’t do it for his son. He didn’t know anything about Burisma. He didn’t know what Hunter Biden was up to.

 

HUNTER BIDEN’S EX-BUSINESS PARTNER TO FACE SENTENCING AFTER COURT REINSTATES FRAUD CONVICTION

 

Then last October, we showed you a photograph of Joe and Hunter Biden golfing with a man called Devon Archer, a board member of Burisma and Hunter Biden’s business partner. The Biden campaign never explained that photograph. Rather than following up, our media rushed to Joe Biden’s defense in the same way they’re now rushing to bury the New York Post story.

 

In December, a voter in Iowa tried to ask Joe Biden about Burisma and his fitness for office. Joe Biden lost control of himself. He called the man “fat” and then challenged him to a push-up contest.

 

You might be wondering what Joe Biden thinks of all this. Unfortunately, his campaign called a lid before noon Wednesday. That meant reporters couldn’t ask him about the New York Post story, not that they wanted to.

 

We have some questions, and here’s the first one: Did any money from Burisma or any other foreign company or foreign government wind up in Joe Biden’s pockets or in the account of any entity he benefits from?

 

We’re not accusing Joe Biden of a crime. We’re saying it has long been a mystery how a man who took a government salary for almost 50 years has lived like a rich man since the 1970s. (Ever seen Joe Biden’s houses? Look them up. “Opulent” doesn’t begin to describe the way he lives.) Can you do that? No, you can’t. So how did Joe Biden do that?

 

No one seems especially interested in finding out. But we are, and we may. There were a lot of emails on that laptop in Delaware, tens of thousands of emails. The New York Post is not the only news organization that has copies of those emails. They are out there. So stay tuned.

NY Post Editor on Hunter Biden Scandal Report: ‘Judge It for Yourself’

The New York Post’s opinion editor said the publication has been “very transparent” with how it handled a hard drive that allegedly belonged to Joe Biden’s son Hunter and contained purported emails that point to deals with Ukrainian and Chinese officials. He calls on readers to “judge it for yourself without letting the narrative be shaped for you before you’ve had a chance to read it.”

 

“We were very transparent about what we knew and what we didn’t know. And we reported it out very meticulously. And then, [in the] morning we published it,” said Sohrab Ahmari, the editor, in an interview with Epoch Times on Friday.

In recent days, the New York Post dropped a series of exposés on the dealings of Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden.

 

Soon after the first story dropped, Twitter blocked users from linking to the story in both public posts and direct messages. And Facebook’s communication manager Andy Stone publicly announced that Facebook would be “reducing its distribution.”

 

Since then, Jack Dorsey has tweeted their “communication” was “not great” and that “straight blocking of URLs was wrong.”

 

In this episode, we sit down with Sohrab Ahmari, the op-ed editor of the New York Post and author of the forthcoming book “The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos.”

 

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek. MORE TO READ]

 

After the story was published earlier this week, it quickly went viral on various social media websites. However, it was later found that Twitter blocked sharing the article and added warning labels, while a Facebook executive, Andy Stone, said the platform would limit the spread of the article and allow its third-party fact-checkers to evaluate the contents. Some users who shared the link were locked out of their Twitter accounts, including New York Post itself and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

 

As of Friday, it “seems like Twitter unlocked at least the initial Ukraine story. So now you can share it and your viewers can find it anywhere,” he added. “You can find it on our website NYPost.com, they can see for themselves, both the kind of depth and quality of the reporting.”

 

The move drew several comments from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey himself, who first said on Wednesday night that communication around the blocking of the article was poor.

 

 

Later, Dorsey admitted that “straight blocking of URLs was wrong, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fix.” He added: “Our goal is to attempt to add context, and now we have capabilities to do that.”

 

Twitter initially claimed the NY Post article violated its policies on “personal and private information” and violations of its Hacked Materials Policy. “Commentary on or discussion about hacked materials, such as articles that cover them but do not include or link to the materials themselves, aren’t a violation of this policy. Our policy only covers links to or images of hacked material themselves,” Twitter stated.

 

But for Ahmari, the damage appears to have been done.

 

The move from Twitter and Facebook, which announced it had limited the reach of the NY Post’s initial story, “just goes to show how much unaccountable power these tech monopolies wield, where our freedom speech today lives or dies on these platforms,” he remarked. “And, you know … if freedom speech is real, and it matters, it has to be real on these platforms, and yet, it’s hostage to the whims of Silicon Valley billionaires, it seems.”

 

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign refuted the NY Post’s report, saying Joe Biden met with an executive at Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings.

 

“Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as ‘not legitimate’ and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing. Trump Administration officials have attested to these facts under oath,” the Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to news outlets on Wednesday.

Hunter and Joe Biden Scandal Takes a Dark Turn — FBI’s Top Lawyer on Child Porn Involved in Case

 

Posted By Jim Hoft

Guest post by Bill Hennessy

October 16, 2020 at 11:20am

The Gateway Pundit

 

Hunter Biden laptop-image-Match

 

The emails and text messages of Hunter Biden are depressing. Despite many millions of dollars in income, the younger Biden seems to be always in financial distress.

 

These emails and texts came to light in a series of New York Post stories on the contents of a laptop, presumably belonging to Hunter Biden. Someone dropped off the laptop at a computer repair shop to have its hard drive content recovered. That customer never paid and never returned for the device or its contents.

 

The store owner was disturbed by the laptop’s content. Fearing for his safety, he released the hard drive to the FBI in December 2019. When the FBI failed to follow up on the disturbing contents, the shop owner turned over a copy of the contents to former federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani.  Giuliani, in turn, released the material to the New York Post.

 

In one text, Hunter Biden tells his daughter Naomi she can’t keep living like a billionaire’s daughter because her dad is broke.

 

In another, he promises never to demand half her salary the way her grandfather does.

 

Rudy Giuliani holds a print of Biden’s text message to daughter claiming Joe Biden demands half of Hunter’s salary.

 

The question arises, why would Hunter Biden agree to turn over cash to his father?

 

And another question: Why has the FBI done nothing?

 

We don’t know, of course, if anything Hunter Biden wrote to his daughter is true. Hunter could be lying. And we don’t yet have definitive prove anything on the laptop is authentic. But, based on the evidence, there’s every reason to believe it’s all true.

 

So, again, we ask, why would Hunter Biden consent to passing half his income to his father?

 

It’s not like Joe Biden is destitute. Once known as “the Senator from MBNA,” Joe Biden has millions in his political career. He was Vice President of the United States for eight of the last twelve years. Before that, he’d been a US Senator since 1973.

 

Maybe Hunter is just a remarkable kid who would never say “no” to his father. But there’s another, darker possibility. Maybe Hunter felt he had no choice.

 

The FBI’s Child Porn Attack Dog

 

One image included in the New York Post photos was the FBI’s subpoena for the laptop.

 

Bleeding through the top page was the FBI Special Agent’s signature: Joshua Wilson. As Western Journal describes it, Joshua Wilson works a specific kind of crime: child porn.

 

FBI Grand Jury subpoena for Hunter Biden’s laptop.

 

Subpoena for Hunter Biden laptop signed by Joshua Wilson

 

In 2012, Wilson was described by The Star-Ledger, a New Jersey-based newspaper, as “an FBI agent based in New Jersey who has spent nearly five years working full time on child pornography.

 

More recent news articles suggest Wilson has also worked child abduction cases.

 

A child pornography criminal complaint from 2012 includes Wilson’s signature — seemingly an exact match to what was found on the December subpoena.

 

Both Western Journal and the left-leaning Business Insider confirm that the Special Agent’s signature belongs to the same Joshua Wilson.

 

From Business Insider:

 

It’s unclear whether the FBI employs more than one agent named Joshua Wilson. But the available evidence seems to show **the Joshua Wilson who signed the subpoena for Hunter Biden’s laptop, and the Joshua Wilson who investigates child pornography for the FBI, are the same person**. This raises the possibility, not explored by the Post, that the FBI issued the subpoena for reasons unrelated to Hunter Biden’s role in Ukraine and Burisma.

 

The shop owner has told several news outlets that he did not *see* any child pornography on the hard drive. But those news outlets also confirm that the shop owner has severe vision problems. Some commenters have described him as “legally blind.”

 

Suppose the FBI’s child pornography and exploitation division is investigating the laptop. In that case, we begin to see possible answers to the two burning questions: Why did Hunter Biden agree to share his income with his wealthy father, and why has the FBI failed to act on the laptop’s contents.

 

Was Joe Biden Blackmailing His Own Son?

 

We know that Hunter Biden exploited his father’s position as Vice President to win ridiculously lucrative jobs with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, several Chinese companies and officials, and a $3.5 million gift from the wife of Moscow’s mayor.

 

We have learned from the New York Post story that Hunter seems to have arranged a meeting between a Burisma executive and Joe Biden in 2015.

 

We know that Joe Biden got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired in exchange for a $1 billion gift to the Ukrainian government.

 

We just learned that Joe Biden demanded at least half of his son’s vast income and that Hunter Biden complied with his father’s demands.

 

And now we know the FBI sent its child porn expert to seize Hunter Biden’s laptop.

 

We also know that Hunter Biden has lived a troubled life. The Navy kicked him out for drug abuse. He fathered a child he denies and refuses to support. Photos, both in the press and on the hard drive, reveal a playboy’s lifestyle of travel, drinking, drugs, and women. And constant financial problems despite millions of dollars in income.

 

Considering the numerous photos of Hunter and Joe together, it is reasonable to assume Joe knows about Hunter’s lifestyle. In other words, Joe Biden knows what’s in Hunter’s closet. And the potential consequences to Hunter’s reputation and freedom.

 

All of this information leads to one final question. A question that answers the two burning questions: **Did Joe Biden blackmail his son?**

 

Did Joe Biden exploit Hunter’s recklessness by pimping him out as a bagman to foreign capitals?

 

Did Joe Biden use his influence and power to hamstring FBI investigations of Hunter?

 

Therefore, did Hunter Biden feel he had no choice but to turn over half the loot to his “Pops?”

Report: Hunter Biden Business Partner Confirms Authenticity Of Email About Deal With Chinese Company

 

By Chuck Ross

October 17, 2020 11:36 AM ET

Daily Caller

 

One of the recipients on an email chain with Hunter Biden that was published earlier this week has authenticated the document, Fox News reported.

 

The email in question, which is dated March 13, 2017, purportedly shows a business partner of Biden’s discussing “remuneration packages” for participants in a deal involving CEFC China Energy, a Chinese energy company that was owned at the time by Ye Jianming.

 

The New York Post published portions of the email on Thursday as part of a series of stories based on documents purportedly from Biden’s laptop.

 

Some Democrats have questioned the authenticity of emails published by the Post. But according to Fox News, a person copied on the March 13, 2017, email confirmed that the published document is authentic.

 

Fox News did not identify which of the people on the email thread confirmed its authenticity. The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to everyone on the thread but did not receive any responses. (RELATED: Hunter Biden’s Business Dealings Created ‘Extortion And Counterintelligence Concerns,’ Senate Report Says)

 

Hunter Biden is identified as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC” in the email. It also says that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.”

 

The author of the email also included a proposed breakdown of payments, including “20” for “H” and the notation: “10 held by H for the big guy?”

 

According to Fox News, sources said that “the big guy” is a reference to Joe Biden.

 

The Biden campaign and Hunter Biden have not disputed the authenticity of the emails released so far. Instead, they have dismissed the publication of the documents as a smear campaign orchestrated by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

 

Some Democrats have alleged that the Russian government may have a hand in obtaining or releasing the emails, but the Biden campaign and Hunter Biden have not disputed the story about how he obtained the laptop.

 

Giuliani claims he obtained the Biden documents from John Paul Mac Isaac, who owns the Mac Shop in Wilmington. Giuliani provided copies of the emails to the Post on Sunday.

 

Isaac told the newspaper that a man he believes to be Hunter Biden dropped off his computer for repair in April 2019 but never came back to retrieve it. He has said that he notified the FBI through an intermediary about the computer late last year, and that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware subpoenaed the device in December.

 

Isaac said he made copies of the computer hard drive before handing the computer over to authorities. He has also said he contacted various senators about the computer but did not receive a response. He contacted a lawyer for Giuliani last month, he claims.

 

Giuliani has been investigating the Bidens’ various business dealings since at least 2018. He met several times beginning last year with Arkady Derkach, a Ukrainian member of parliament who the U.S. sanctioned last month because of his links to Russia.

 

A Senate report released last month detailed Biden’s business arrangement with Ye, the former chairman of CEFC.

 

The report said that companies affiliated with CEFC wired $5 million to a company co-owned by Biden and a Ye associate named Gongweng Deng.

 

The report said that Ye worked in the 2000s for a front group affiliated with the People’s Liberation Army.

My 2¢ on Trump COVID & Biden Debate Lies


John R. Houk

© October 3, 2020

As you have probably been aware by now, President Trump and First Lady Melania have been tested positive for COVID-19. Unsurprisingly from America’s treasonous Left, well-wishing has been near non-existent and death-wishes have been ghoulishly ever present.

 

With all the negative hate pertaining to COVID pouring toward the President, American Patriots should be aware Trump’s symptoms have not incapacitated him. INDEED, even though Trump’s doctors want him at Walter Reed Hospital, he is STILL working afflicted only with mild symptoms at the hospital.

 

I FULLY EXPECT President Trump to breeze through COVID symptoms proving the Dem-Marxist Party lockdowns are mere extra-constitutional maneuvers to control lives. COVID should be treated like the flu and common cold outbreaks. You get sick, go home until better. Then go back to work or school or whatever one’s common activity is.

 

Well that’s my 2¢ on Trump’s COVID experience and the expected lying viciousness of the Dem-Marxist Party and their MSM propaganda machine. Mr. President get well, win the election and open and free America from Dem-Marxist despotic control of human lives via business restrictions and Church restrictions.

 

I am placing these thoughts down on 10/2. You won’t get to read them until 10/3 because I am still angry at the debate abuse of Chris Wallace and the abject lies Wallace allowed Quid Pro Joe Biden to get away with as well as Wallace NOT allowing Trump to defend himself. FORCING Trump to interrupt both Biden and Wallace. Incidentally, Biden and Wallace frequently interrupted Trump but the MSM Propaganda Machine (including many Fox News pundits) remarkably only vilified Trump. SUCH HYPOCRISY!

 

So below are some articles/posts that directly refute the Biden lies during the 9/29 debate. This is a lengthy expose but you should really take a gander. The biggest reason to look is because the more facts showing Biden family corruption leads me to the suspicion Deceiving Dem-Marxists will use President Trump’s minor symptom COVID as a deceptive (the proverbial anonymous source) excuse to call off future debates for slow-wit Joe.

Fox moderator called out for saving Biden, trapping Trump

 

By Chad Groening & Billy Davis

Thursday, October 1, 2020

One News Now

 

President Donald Trump is being praised for his debate night performance, in particular his comments on the pandemic and the crashed economy, while moderator Chris Wallace is getting called out for his glaring bias.

 

“I could not be more happy with our president and the way that he handled himself,” Cathie Adams, of Eagle Forum, tells OneNewsNow. “He was not going to sit there and take it.”

 

Adams says many Americans could sympathize over Trump’s frustration with the China-created pandemic, and the mandatory shutdowns that have thrown millions out of work, as well as mandatory mask orders.

 

Trump was accused by Biden of standing by while 200,000 Americans have died from the pandemic, but the President pushed back by pointing that Biden criticized him for shutting off U.S.-bound flights from China and called it “xenophobic” to do so.

 

Gary Bauer, president of American Values, says Trump won “hands down” over “substantive” issues and, like Adams, he points to the debate over the pandemic and shutdowns as an important topic.

 

“I thought one of the most telling moments was when the President said to the former vice president, You want to shut the country down again,” Bauer says. “And shutting the country down, the President said, means all kinds of downsides for not only the economy but for our families, for people’s mental health, for all these other things that come into play.”

 

Biden was unable to wiggle away from that accusation and Bauer points out the former vice president admitted he wanted to drop the Trump tax cuts, too.

 

“How in the world do you shut the economy down and raise taxes,” Bauer asks, “and somehow think that by doing those two things you’re going to get economic growth in the United States?”

 

Regarding moderator Chris Wallace, debate watchers lit up social media as Wallace seemed to save Biden more than once and also cut off Trump in the middle of the President’s responses to Biden’s accusations.

 

Trump supporters predictably reacted with frustration but other more neutral observers, as the debate wore on, commented on the obvious pattern of bias.

 

Tim Graham of the Media Research Center says describing the debate itself as a chaotic mess, with too much cross-talking, is a fair description.

 

“But I think they need to address the idea,” he says, “that the moderator was attacking one candidate and not the other.”

 

The best example of Wallace’s worst behavior, Graham says, was the moderator’s dramatic demand that Trump “denounce” white supremacist groups.

 

“The mere question implies he likes white supremacists. It’s an insulting question,” Graham complains. “Chris Wallace did not ask Joe Biden to condemn Antifa. He didn’t ask him to condemn rioters and looters.”

 

Biden, in fact, suggested that Antifa does not exist and was challenged by Trump — but not by Wallace.

Fact Check: Joe Biden Says Report of Russian Billionaire Paying Hunter’s Firm $3.5M ‘Totally Discredited’

 

By Kristina Wong

29 Sep 2020

Breitbart

 

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that his son Hunter Biden did not receive $3.5 million from the former Moscow mayor’s wife Yelena Baturina.

 

VERDICT: FALSE. Biden’s private equity firm received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Yelena Baturina, according to a Senate report.

 

During the first presidential debate, Biden denied that his son Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Baturina, the widow of former Moscow mayor Yury Luzkkov.

 

Biden said that allegation was “totally discredited.”

 

However, according to a report released last week by the Senate Homeland Security Committee, bank records showed that Baturina wired $3.5 million to a bank account controlled by Rosemont Seneca Thornton as part of a “consultancy agreement” in early 2014.

 

Rosemont Seneca Thornton, LLC, is a firm that Biden incorporated with his longtime business associate Devon Archer in May 2013.

 

Biden’s lawyer has argued that Biden was not a co-founder of Rosemont Seneca Thornton, had no interest in it, and did not have a financial relationship with Baturina, according to the New York Times.

 

However, the lawyer did not respond to a question from the Times about whether Biden was paid by Rosemont Seneca Thornton or did consulting work for Baturina.

Carney: Biden Spent the First Debate Flooding America with a Torrent of Lies

 

By John Carney

30 Sep 2020

Breitbart

 

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden took the stage last night with a simple political task: prove to the American people that he is more than “Basement Joe” — He needed to show that he has the temperament, mental acuity, physical stamina, and strength of character to be president.

 

Instead, Biden let loose an unprecedented torrent of lies and insults, yelling “shut up” when asked to articulate his views on the Supreme Court.

 

Biden lies unnecessarily, habitually, and without hesitation. When caught lying, he responds with nasty personal attacks.

 

Even more galling, Biden lies about things that he shouldn’t because they are easily checkable. There are publicly available facts that refute his data.

 

Take his claim about President Donald Trump’s taxes. He repeated the widespread lie that Trump paid only $750 in taxes in each of the first two years of his presidency. In fact, Trump paid millions but later claimed he had overpaid and only owed $750 — and that’s according to the New York Times.

 

Even more bizarrely, Biden went on to claim that Trump was able to avoid taxes because of changes Trump made to the tax code.

 

“Look, the tax code that put him in a position that he pays less tax than on the money a school teacher makes is because of him,” Biden said.

 

But Trump’s changes did not take effect until 2018 and would not have been filed until 2019. The New York Times story on Trump’s taxes covered only the years 2000-2017.

 

In other words, the Trump tax returns in question pre-date any Trump administration reforms of the tax code. Whatever provisions Trump employs to reduce his tax burden were in place while Biden was a U.S. senator and vice president.

 

Trump tried to call Biden out on this, asking why he hadn’t done anything about the tax code for all those years. Biden responds by going ballistic.

 

Trump: Why didn’t you do it over the last 25 years?
Biden: Because you weren’t president and screwing things up.
Trump: You were a Senator and [crosstalk]
Biden:  You’re the worst president America has ever had. Come on.

 

Biden unleashed falsehoods from his mouth like an undead hydra spewing forth a toxic vomit cloud. His voice is a wheezy breath weapon that turns every subject it touches into lies.

 

“They’ve done nothing to help small businesses,” Biden puked.

 

Narrator voice: They spent hundreds of billions of dollars to support small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and capitalized unprecedented programs with the Federal Reserve to extend loans to small businesses.

 

Biden complained that there were 91 companies on the Fortune 500 who did not pay any taxes last year. That may be true but a report by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a left-leaning research group in Washington, found that nearly 40 percent of the Fortune 500 companies it examined paid no taxes in at least one year between 2008 and 2015.

 

So this is another situation that pre-existed Trump — a fact which Trump pointed out. Biden just lied and insisted it was Trump’s fault.

 

“Because you in fact passed that, that was your tax proposal,” he said.

 

Biden lied again when he said that the 2017 tax act did not lower taxes for the American people. That’s just not true. Most Americans who pay taxes got a tax cut.

 

Don’t take my word for it, though. Here’s the New York Times explaining this:

 

If you’re an American taxpayer, you probably got a tax cut last year. And there’s a good chance you don’t believe it.

 

Ever since President Trump signed the Republican-sponsored tax bill in December 2017, independent analyses have consistently found that a large majority of Americans would owe less because of the law. Preliminary data based on tax filings has shown the same.

 

Biden’s vomit-web of lies spans the world, stretching all the way to China.

“We have a higher deficit with China now than we did before,” he said. In fact, our trade deficit with China is on the path to be the lowest since 2009.

 

Biden lied about the economic record of the Obama administration, claiming that Trump inherited a booming economy. In fact, economic growth was sclerotic in the final year of former President Barack Obama’s reign.

 

Biden also made the truly outrageous claim that Trump caused the recession. There’s simply no way a recession was avoidable once the coronavirus got loose in the world. That’s why every single major industrialized nation fell into recession.

 

Who knows? Perhaps Biden will claim that Trump pushed Germany, France, and Japan into a recession. It’s all Trump’s fault even if it happened before he took office or in far off countries out of his control.

 

Biden is effectively asking Americans to endorse his deception, to allow him to claim control of a principality of lies.

 

In Biden’s America, any argument against the lies will be met with the cry of the cancel culture: “Shut up man.”

Joe Biden’s Top Six Lies From the First Debate

 

By Matt Palumbo

Biden Lying at 9/29/20 Debate – Getty Images

 

Joe Biden spewed dozens of factual inaccuracies and lies during the debate last night, all of which the mainstream media will be happy to overlook.

Here are six that stood out.

 

Biden Apparently Thinks Economy Boomed Under Obama 

 

Biden: “We left him [Trump] a booming economy. And he caused the recession”

 

Growth was below 2% in 2016, which can hardly be considered handing someone a  “booming” economy. It’s also absurd to claim that Trump caused the recession, when every single other country is also suffering economic devastation from the coronavirus. Relative to other countries the U.S. has done a much better job at containing the economic damage. Meanwhile when it was Obama battling a recession, the recovery was the slowest since WWII.

 

U.S. Slow Recovery Chart-780 under Clinton, Bush & Obama

 

Biden also said “Trump will be the first in American history to lose jobs during his presidency” if he loses the election. As already stated, it’s ridiculous to attribute pandemic related job losses to Trump (especially when it’s blue states that have both the most coronavirus deaths per capita and the highest unemployment rates), but Herbert Hoover already holds the position of having left office with fewer jobs than when he took office.

 

Schrodinger’s Green New Deal

 

Biden: “No, I don’t support the Green New Deal. I support the Biden plan I put forward, which is different than what [Trump] calls the Green New Deal.”

Yet his own campaign website says that he does.]

 

This is disproven by the climate section of Biden’s own campaign website.

 

Biden Website Screen Grab

 

Biden’s Memory Fails Him Again 

 

Biden: “His own former spokesperson said, you know, riots, chaos and violence help us and violence help his cause. That’s what this is all about.”

 

After Trump questioned whom Biden was quoting, he responded, “Kellyanne Conway.”

 

What Conway actually said came from an August  Fox and Friends appearance, where she said: “The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order.

 

Biden Invents Amy Coney Barrett’s Position on Constitutionality of ObamaCare

 

Biden: “She [Amy Coney Barrett] thinks that the Affordable Care Act is not constitutional.”

 

There is no record of ACB ever saying she thinks ObamaCare is unconstitutional. It’s obviously entirely possible that she does, but it’s not confirmed as Biden claims.

 

Biden vs. Basic Details

 

Biden: “There was a peaceful protest in front of the White House (in Lafayette Square outside the White House). What did he do? He came out of his bunker, had the military do tear gas.”

 

The military was not used to clear the crowd Biden is speaking of, a chemical irritant other than tear gas was used. The incident where Trump was in a bunker was days earlier when hundreds of protesters [Blog Editor: violent rioters] gathered outside the executive mansion.

 

The Charlottesville Lie Just Don’t Die

 

Biden: “Close your eyes, try to remember the people coming out of the field with the torches, their veins bulging, spewing anti-Semitic bile, accompanied by the Ku Klux Klan. A young woman got killed. And they asked the president what he thought, and he said there were ‘very fine people on both sides.’ No president has ever said anything like that.”

 

The “very fine people” remark was one Trump clarified within seconds of making it: “So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”

 

And that’s to name just six!

THE 1ST DEBATE FACTS CHECKED – BIDEN 33 FALSE CLAIMS

Biden Makes 33 False Or Misleading Claims At The Debate

 

By Yig Wilson

September 30, 2020

The Yig

 

BIDEN: “I’m not opposed to the Justice.”

 

FACT: Biden and Harris have both publicly opposed Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court, despite glowing reviews from the legal community and her colleagues.

 

Biden put out a statement in opposition to Judge Barrett’s nomination.

 

Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, tweeted that she strongly opposed Judge Barrett’s nomination.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “There’s a hundred million people with preexisting conditions and [their insurance will] be taken away as well.”

 

FACT: Biden’s claim has been called “misleading,” and President Trump has said he will always protect Americans with pre-existing conditions.

 

Just last week, President Trump signed an Executive Order making it the official policy of the federal government to protect those with pre-existing conditions.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “So the thing that should happen is we should wait. We should wait and see what the outcome of this election is, because that is the only way the American people get to express their view, who they elect as president and who they elect as Vice President.”

 

FACT: History is on the side of filling the Supreme Court vacancy now, and Joe Biden previously said the President had an obligation to name a nominee, even in an election year.

 

There have been 29 prior Supreme Court vacancies in American history during a Presidential election year, and in all cases, the President nominated a Justice.

 

17 out of 19 times the Senate has confirmed the President’s Supreme Court nominee in an election year when the President’s party controls the Senate as it does today.

 

In 2016, Biden said that he supported confirming a Supreme Court Justice in an election year “even a few months before a presidential election.”

 

Biden in 2016: “In my view, [Senators] are required to give the nominee a hearing and a vote.”

 

##

 

BIDEN: “We expand Obamacare and we increase it. We do not wipe any and, one of the big debates we had, with 23 of my colleagues trying to win the nomination that I won, were saying Biden wanted to allow people to have private insurance still. They can. They do. They will.”

 

FACT: Biden’s public option will crowd out private health insurance plans.

 

Biden’s government-backed “public option” will crowd out private health insurance plans, destroying the health care that 180 million Americans rely on.

 

One of the architects of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, said a public option would crowd out private insurance.

 

In 2009, Barack Obama admitted that a “public option” could crowd out private insurance.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “He’s been promising a health care plan since he got elected. He has none, like almost everything else he talks about. He does not have a plan. He doesn’t have a plan.”

 

FACT: President Trump has a health care plan.

 

On September 24, President Trump unveiled his America First Health Care plan, outlining the key policies and reforms the President supports, including protecting Americans with pre-existing conditions.

 

In August, President Trump released his second term agenda, which includes health care as a central focus.

 

##

 

TRUMP: “You agreed with Bernie Sanders to the manifesto and now you’re disavowing it.” BIDEN: “There is no manifesto.”

 

FACT: There is a manifesto, and Biden’s campaign worked with Sanders’ associates to write it.

 

In July, the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force released a 118-page document filled with far-left, radical policies the Biden campaign has embraced.

 

The task force included socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Castro-sympathizer Rep. Karen Bass.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “What did he do? He went in, and he, we were insisting that the Chinese, the people we had on the ground in China should be able to go to Wuhan and determine for themselves how dangerous this was. He didn’t even ask [Chinese President] Xi to do that.”

 

FACT: The Trump Administration first tried to get American officials into China in early January; Biden didn’t call for sending experts into China until February 25, 50 days later.

 

This often repeated claim by Biden has been repeatedly debunked by fact-checkers.

 

The Washington Post fact checker gave Biden’s claim three Pinocchios.

 

CDC Director Robert Redfield offered to send CDC experts to China as early as January 4, and the issue was raised multiple times by Administration officials in the weeks after.

 

President Trump personally raised the issue in a call with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

 

Biden did not call on China to admit U.S. experts until February 25, after U.S. officials were already on the ground.

 

##

 

WALLACE: “But you and Senator Harris are saying you can’t trust a scientist.” BIDEN: “No, you can trust a scientist. She didn’t say that.”

 

WALLACE: “She said they would be ‘muzzled and suppressed.’”

 

BIDEN: “Well, that’s what he’s going to try and do.”

 

FACT: President Trump has listened to scientists and public health experts every step of the way.

 

Dr. Fauci has said on multiple occasions that he has never been muzzled.

 

FactCheck.org: “Biden went too far when he claimed that Trump ‘hasn’t allowed his scientists to speak’ about the coronavirus.”

 

##

 

TRUMP: “But he wants to shut it [the economy] down.” BIDEN: “No.”

 

FACT: Biden and his campaign have admitted that he would potentially shut down the economy again.

 

In August, Joe Biden openly said that he was prepared to shut down the country again.

 

Biden campaign spokesperson Symone Sanders admitted that Biden would shut down the economy again.

 

Biden surrogate Senator Chris Coons admitted Biden would shut down the economy again.

 

##

 

WALLACE: “The president says it’s a V-shaped recovery, you say it’s a K-shaped recovery. What’s the difference?” BIDEN: “The difference is millionaires and billionaires like him in the middle of the Covid crisis have done very well.”

 

FACT: President Trump is leading an unprecedented economic recovery that is benefitting all Americans.

 

The economy has added back 10.6 million jobs over the last four months, half of all the jobs lost due to the pandemic.

 

The unemployment rate fell to 8.4% in August and saw the second-largest one month decrease in U.S. history.

 

Retail sales have increased four months in a row, with consumer spending already reaching pre-pandemic levels.

American manufacturing has grown for four straight months.

 

The stock market has rebounded, with the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both recently achieving new record highs.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “He’s been totally irresponsible the way in which he has handled the social distancing and people wearing mask, basically encouraging them not to.”

 

FACT: President Trump has strongly advocated that Americans wear masks, and he has worn one himself many times.

 

In March, President Trump recommended that people could use a scarf as a mask.

 

In April, President Trump announced that the CDC was recommending wearing face masks.

 

In July, President Trump recommended that all Americans wear masks “whether they like the mask or not.”

 

In July, President Trump tweeted a photo of himself wearing a mask and said wearing masks is patriotic.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “[The Trump Administration has] done nothing to help small businesses. Nothing.”

 

FACT: President Trump’s Paycheck Protection Program was undeniably successful in keeping Americans employed and small businesses afloat during the pandemic.

 

The Paycheck Protection Program has provided $525 billion to over 5.2 million U.S. businesses, protecting more than 51 million jobs.

 

President Trump ensured that $30 billion of the Paycheck Protection Program was reserved for small financial institutions serving minority communities.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “He pays less tax than a schoolteacher … This guy paid a total of $750 in taxes.””

 

FACT: President Trump has paid millions of dollars in taxes in 2016 and 2017.

 

President Trump paid millions in taxes during years that The New York Times falsely claimed that President Trump only paid $750 in federal taxes.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “The economy is busted.”

 

FACT: Before the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump built the greatest economy in American history, and he is working to bring it back.

 

Through the first three years of the Trump Administration, the U.S. economy saw nearly 7.3 million new jobs, higher growth, and a record setting stock market.

 

Workers saw higher wages, lower taxes, record low unemployment rates, and a thriving labor market.

 

6.6 million Americans were lifted out of poverty and millions were lifted off food stamps.

 

In just four months, the economy has already recovered over 10.6 million jobs, nearly half the jobs lost due to the pandemic.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “We inherited the worst recession short of a depression in American history. I was asked to bring it back. We were able to have an economic recovery that created the jobs you’re talking about. We handed him a booming economy.”

 

FACT: Biden oversaw the slowest recovery since the Great Depression, leaving behind millions of hard-working Americans.

 

Joe Biden’s economic recovery was a once-in a century failure: he’s even said so himself.

 

Biden himself has admitted that many Americans “were left behind” during his recovery.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “My economic plan would create 7 million more jobs than his in four years”

 

FACT: Biden’s economic plans would destroy jobs and shrink the economy.

 

According to the Tax Foundation, Biden’s tax plan would destroy 585,000 full-time jobs.

 

Biden’s tax plan would shrink the economy by 1.5 percent.

According to the Penn-Wharton Budget Model, Biden’s tax plan would slow economic growth.

 

BIDEN: “My son did nothing wrong in Burisma.”

 

FACT: Multiple State Department officials expressed alarm about Hunter Biden’s financial dealings at the time, concerned over the clear conflict-of-interest.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “[President Trump] said there were very fine people on both sides.”

 

FACT: This is an often-repeated Biden lie; President Trump specifically condemned neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville.

 

Fact checkers have debunked Biden’s claim and said that President Trump condemned white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

 

CNN’s Jake Tapper admitted that President Trump did in fact condemn Neo-Nazis.

 

Fox News’ Brit Hume has debunked the “very fine people” lie.

 

##

 

TRUMP: “[Hunter Biden] got $3.5 million dollars.” BIDEN: “That is not true.”

 

FACT: The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee recently released a report saying that Hunter Biden’s firm did in fact receive $3.5 million from the wife of the Mayor of Moscow.

 

Biden’s firm, Rosemont Seneca Thornton, received a $3.5 million wire transfer in 2014 from Russian billionaire Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “Even before COVID, manufacturing went in the hole.”

 

FACT: Half a million manufacturing jobs were created during the first three years of the Trump Administration.

 

The economy added 510,000 new manufacturing jobs between President Trump’s Election and February 2020.

 

In 2018, the U.S. added 264,000 new manufacturing jobs, the best one-year total in 30 years.

 

The U.S. has added more than 13,000 factories under President Trump.

 

During the Obama-Biden Administration, the United states lost 192,000 manufacturing jobs.

 

During the Trump Administration’s first 37 months, manufacturing production grew at a rate 11 times greater than the last 37 months under the Obama-Biden Administration.

 

##

 

TRUMP: “I think it’s a party issue. You can bring in a couple of examples but when you look at Chicago, what’s going on in Chicago where 53 people were shot and eight died … If you look at New York where it’s going up like nobody has ever seen anything. Numbers are going up 100, 150, 200% crime.”

 

BIDEN: “Republican cities.”

 

FACT: A vast majority of the most violent cities in the U.S. are cities run by Democrats.

 

17 out of the top 20 most violent cities in the United States are Democratic-run cities, including Chicago and New York.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “His own former spokesperson said, ‘you know riots and chaos and violence help his cause’ … Kellyanne Conway said that.”

 

FACT: Biden misquoted and misconstrued comments from former Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.

 

Conway was responding to a question about something Biden supporter Pete Buttigieg said, falsely blaming President Trump for the violence occurring in Democrat-run cities.

 

In response, Conway said “The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order.”

 

This is not the first time Biden has misquoted Conway.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “Look, what I support is the police having the opportunity to deal with the problems they face. I am totally opposed to defunding the police officers.”

 

FACT: As Vice President, Joe Biden oversaw cuts in federal funding for state and local law enforcement, breaking a pledge to increase funding.

 

Biden said “yes, absolutely” when asked if he would redirect funding away from police to other government programs like housing.

 

Kamala Harris recently said a Biden-Harris Administration would “reimagine” public safety, which is the same language used by left-wing “defund the police” activists.

 

The Biden-Sanders unity platform’s proposed destruction of qualified immunity for police would financially eviscerate local police departments even further.

 

Biden cut police funding when he was Vice President.

 

Despite candidate-Biden’s promise in 2008 to fully fund the COPS program, the Obama-Biden Administration slashed COPS funding from $1.55 billion to $222 million.

 

At the time, police groups protested the Obama-Biden cuts, calling the funding reductions “simply irresponsible.”

 

Federal funding for state and local law enforcement fell during the Obama-Biden Administration.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “The fact is that I’ve gone head to head with Putin.”

 

FACT: Biden has a record of being weak on Russia.

 

The Russia “reset,” which Biden was the first Obama official to publicly propose, was a failure.

 

The Obama-Biden Administration refused requests by Ukraine for lethal weapons to use against Russian aggression in Crimea.

 

Russian election interference occurred on Biden’s watch.

 

In 2012, Biden mocked the idea that “Russia is still our major adversary,” saying Russia was “working closely with us.”

 

##

 

TRUMP: “…for cocaine use. And he didn’t have a job until you became Vice President.”

 

BIDEN: “None of that is true.”

 

FACT: As was widely reported, in 2014 Hunter Biden was discharged from the military for cocaine use.

 

USA Today: “Biden, who had no prior military experience, was one of six officers commissioned nationally into the Navy Reserve public affairs division … Biden, 44, was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February.”

 

The Wall Street Journal: “Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine.”

 

##

 

BIDEN: “The way you talk about the military, the way you talk about them being losers and being ah- and just being suckers.”

 

FACT: At least 14 officials who were on the trip to France with President Trump have gone on the record to refute the anonymous sources and allegations in The Atlantic article.

 

Sarah Sanders, former White House Press Secretary: “The Atlantic story on @realDonaldTrump is total BS. I was actually there and one of the people part of the discussion – this never happened.”

 

Hogan Gidley, former White House Deputy Press Secretary: “These are disgusting, grotesque, reprehensible lies. I was there in Paris and the President never said those things.”

 

Dan Scavino, White House Deputy Chief Of Staff for Communications: “I was with POTUS in France, with Sarah, and have been at his side throughout it all. Complete lies by ‘anonymous sources’…”

 

Jordan Karem, former Personal Aide to President Trump: “This is not even close to being factually accurate. plain and simple, it just never happened.”

 

Karem: “Again, this is 100% false. I was next to @POTUS the whole day! The President was greatly disappointed when told we couldn’t fly there. He was incredibly eager to honor our Fallen Heroes.”

 

Johnny DeStefano, former Counselor to the President: “I was on this trip. The Atlantic bit is not true. Period.”

 

John Bolton, former National Security Advisor: “‘I didn’t hear that,’ Mr. Bolton said in an interview. ‘I’m not saying he didn’t say them later in the day or another time but I was there for that discussion.’”

 

Stephen Miller, White House Senior Adviser: The accusation is a “despicable lie … The president deeply wanted to attend the memorial event in question and was deeply displeased by the bad weather call.”

 

Tony Ornato, White House Deputy Chief of Staff and then-Head of the Secret Service’s Presidential Protective Detail has said the story is false.

 

Derek Lyons, Staff Secretary and Counselor to the President: “I was with the President the morning after the scheduled visit. He was extremely disappointed that arrangements could not be made to get him to the site, and that the trip had been cancelled.”

 

Dan Walsh, former White House Deputy Chief Of Staff: “I can attest to the fact that there was a bad weather call in France, and that the helicopters were unable to safely make the flight.”

 

Zach Fuentes, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff: “I did not hear POTUS call anyone losers when I told him about the weather.”

 

First Lady Melania Trump: “@TheAtlantic story is not true. It has become a very dangerous time when anonymous sources are believed above all else, & no one knows their motivation. This is not journalism – It is activism. And it is a disservice to the people of our great nation.”

 

Jamie McCourt, U.S. Ambassador to France and Monaco: “In my presence, POTUS has NEVER denigrated any member of the U.S. military or anyone in service to our country. And he certainly did not that day, either. Let me add, he was devastated to not be able to go to the cemetery at Belleau Wood. In fact, the next day, he attended and spoke at the ceremony in Suresnes in the pouring rain.”

 

Major General William Matz (ret.), Secretary of the American Battle Monuments Commission: “I was the host of the event discussed by the false and despicable article published in The Atlantic magazine on 3 September. On 10 November 2018, I was at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery awaiting the arrival of President Trump. As a former Army infantryman who has flown on many helicopters, I knew that morning the weather was bad and the ceiling was too low for a safe landing that day. When the President’s visit was appropriately canceled due to weather, I received word also that he was upset he would not be able to make the wreath-laying visit and to pay his respect to the 2300 fallen soldiers and Marines interred there. … Those who know President Trump know that the anonymous smears peddled by The Atlantic have no basis in fact or reality, and do a terrible disservice to journalism and to our veterans, living and deceased.”

 

Additionally, The Atlantic’s reporting has been refuted by a White House email and Navy documents that directly show a “bad weather call” was the reason for the canceled presidential trip to Aisne-Marne cemetery in 2018.

WALLACE: “You propose $2 trillion in green jobs, you talk about new limits, not abolishing, but new limits on fracking. Ending the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity by 2035 and zero net emission of greenhouse gases by 2050. The President says a lot of these things would tank the economy and cost millions of jobs.”

 

BIDEN: “He is absolutely wrong.”

 

FACT: Biden’s energy plan would cost trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs.

 

Biden admitted he would willingly “sacrifice” “hundreds of thousands” of fossil fuel jobs in pursuit of his anti-energy agenda.

 

Biden has made clear – he wants to “end” fossil fuels, saying they would have “no place” in a Biden presidency.

 

Biden has said he would “love to make sure we can’t use any oil or gas, period” and that he would “make sure” fossil fuels and fracking are “eliminated.”

 

Over 10.3 million American jobs are supported by the oil and gas industry.

 

Biden has vowed that there would be no place for fracking in a Biden Administration, saying it would be “eliminated.”

 

Biden’s plan to ban new energy permitting on federal lands alone would threaten an estimated 268,000 jobs.

 

Completely banning fracking would destroy anywhere from 1 million to 19 million jobs.

 

Biden has proposed completely eliminating oil, gas, and coal from the U.S. power grid by 2035.

 

Prior estimates show eliminating oil, gas, and coal from the U.S. energy grid would cost anywhere from $4.5 trillion to $5.7 trillion, with an average cost of $35,000 per household.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “That is not my plan. The Green New Deal is not my plan.”

 

FACT: Joe Biden has embraced the Green New Deal in all but name.

 

Biden’s own climate plan on his website cites the Green New Deal as a “crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face.”

 

The Washington Post: “Joe Biden is embracing the framework of the Green New Deal in his bid for the White House…”

 

Inside Climate News: “In embracing it, he proclaimed his support for the central principles … of the Green New Deal.”

 

##

 

TRUMP: “What he did is he said, he called the military ‘stupid bastards.’” BIDEN: “That is not true.”

 

FACT: In March 2016, Biden called service members “stupid bastards” during a speech at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates.

 

After airmen didn’t applaud at one of Biden’s lines, he insulted them by saying: “Clap for that you stupid bastards.”

 

##

 

BIDEN: “You don’t have to solicit the ballot, it’s sent you—it’s sent to your home. What we are saying is, they are saying it has to be postmarked by Election Day. If it doesn’t get in until the seventh, eighth, ninth, it still should be counted. He’s just afraid of counting the votes because of the outcome.”

 

FACT: Biden is wrong that states with mass vote by mail require postmarks; Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court explicitly said ballots, even those without postmarks, will be assumed to be valid.

 

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently ruled that ballots received up to three days after Election Day, even if they’re not postmarked, must be counted.

 

In Wisconsin, ballots that were not postmarked in time for an April 7 ballot-measure election were counted in some counties.

 

BIDEN: “[Judge Amy Coney Barrett] thinks that the Affordable Care Act is not constitutional.”

 

FACT: Judge Amy Coney Barrett has not expressed a view about the Constitutionality of Obamacare or about the current case pending before the Supreme Court.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “We have a higher deficit with China now than we did before.”

 

FACT: The trade deficit with China is falling and “fell sharply” in 2019.

 

##

 

BIDEN: “The fact of the matter is violent crime went down 17%, 15%, in our administration.”

 

FACT: Fact checkers have said this claim is “overstated,” and violent crime rose by more than 4 percent during the last two years Biden was Vice President.

 

Meanwhile, the FBI recently announced that violent crime has fallen during the first three years of the Trump Administration.

Biden Corruption Runs Through Ukraine, Russia, and China

You know something’s up when the media bury a story that would have been a no-brainer for Page One if the subject was a Republican.

 

A new Senate report exposes shocking corruption involving Hunter Biden, who made millions in Ukraine at the natural gas company, Burisma Holdings, when his father, Vice President Joe Biden, was President Obama’s Ukraine point man.

We’ve long known some of this, but the sheer scope of the influence peddling and sums involved are stunning. The 87-page document also exposes Hunter’s Russian connections, including a $3.5 million payment from the wife of a former Moscow mayor embroiled in scandal.

 

A section on China details a web of lucrative ties between Hunter Biden’s firms and companies controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.  It also documents many trips he took to China with Secret Service protection and to dozens of other countries.

 

The deals involve millions of dollars and at least one contract involving China’s acquisition of an American firm that makes sensitive military technology.

 

Oh, almost forgot. There’s this, which apparently is not particularly newsworthy:

 

“Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an ‘Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.’”

 

Nothing to see here, folks.

 

In a Democrat rebuttal, Sens. Gary Peters of Michigan and Ron Wyden of Oregon ignore the wealth of documentation and charge that the report is “based on conspiracy theories with roots in Russian disinformation.” Even before its release, the Democrats in July attacked the report as solely partisan.

 

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, and Charles Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, say that if the Democrats are going to point a finger, it should be at a mirror.

 

“The Democrats’ July 14 letter relied on foreign disinformation to create a false and harmful innuendo about the Chairmen’s oversight work. … Many of the allegations Democrats have made against Republicans … reflect the very patterns of behavior that Democrats themselves have engaged in.”

 

You know, like the fake Russian “collusion” charge while the Dems themselves paid for the phony Steele dossier full of Russian disinformation that led to the FBI spying on the Trump campaign.

 

In January and February 2017, the FBI was told that much of the dossier came from Russian sources, and yet the “collusion” narrative lost steam only after the Mueller Report’s release in April 2019.

 

Democrats then ginned up hysteria over the phone call Mr. Trump made to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. They impeached Mr. Trump while ignoring the massive Biden/Ukraine corruption.

 

It’s clear this report terrifies them. The Washington Post, for instance, wrote very little, buried it inside and focused on Democrat talking points, not the findings.

 

The document unveils a 10-year record of corruption with possibly actionable criminality and a coverup at the highest levels. It’s stunning. Here are just a few findings:

 

Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer joined the board of Burisma Holdings in 2014. Hunter was paid $50,000 a month, though he had no expertise in the field. He and Archer, who had met with Vice President Biden at the White House just before Mr. Biden went to Ukraine on a diplomatic mission, eventually made millions.

 

Hunter was on Burisma’s board when firm owner Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to “shut” a corruption case against him. In 2016, Ukraine prosecutor Victor Shokin had another active investigation into Burisma and Mr. Zlochevsky.

 

“According to news reports, then-Vice President Biden ‘threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss [Shokin].’  After that threat, Ukraine’s Parliament fired Shokin.”

 

Indeed, in a video that every American deserves to see, Mr. Biden boasts at a Council on Foreign Relations gathering in 2018 that as vice president, he shook down Ukraine’s leaders:

 

“I said, you’re not getting the billion…I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a b-tch. (Laughter.) He got fired.”

 

In China, “Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.”

 

Hunter opened a bank account with Gongwen Dong to “fund a $100,000 spending spree” with his uncle and aunt, James and Sara Biden, who also received $1.4 million from Hunter’s firm.

 

Henniges, an American maker of anti-vibration technologies with military applications, was turned over in 2015 to two Chinese companies with ties to the Communist government.  One of the companies was a billion-dollar investment fund, Bohai Harvest (BHR), which was formed in 2013 by a merger of Bohai Capital and Rosemont Seneca Partners.

 

The latter firm was founded in 2009 by investors including Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz, stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry.

 

The conflicts of interest are so glaring they don’t require unpacking.

 

Any fair-minded person who reads the report might be asking, “And Trump got impeached for a phone call? Seriously?”

Hunter Biden Raised ‘Counterintelligence And Extortion’ Concerns…


A GOP Senate report incriminates Hunter Biden (yup, that is quid pro Joe’s son) in various criminal enterprises that includes a possible link to human trafficking. I would be excited except FBI Director Christopher Wray has done zero to look behind the huge billows of criminal Dem smoke to find the fire or the origin of criminal Dem fires. Meaning the Biden criminal syndicate just like the Clinton criminal syndicate will likely have no indictments. I would love to be surprised and live to see Dem criminal corruption prosecuted with equal vigor as a Conservative or Republican. Sigh… Dem-criminality can be read at ZeroHedge reporting on what should be prosecuted.

Hunter Biden Raised ‘Counterintelligence And Extortion’ Concerns, May Have Participated In Sex Trafficking: Senate Report

 

By Tyler Durden

09/23/2020 – 12:55

ZeroHedge

 

Update (1135ET): Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has responded to the Biden probe, saying that after Trump was impeached “for directing a scheme to extort a foreign partner to announce an investigation into Vice President Joe Biden’s son,” that “Trump’s most willing allies in Congress quickly took up that mantle, and carried out his demand…”

 

Schiff accused the two Senate Committee Chairs of “promoting the same Russian disinformation,” adding “the Kremlin must be very pleased.”

 

The California lawmaker notably didn’t address any of the core claims in the report.

 

A long-awaited Senate report on Hunter Biden’s financial dealings with Ukrainian, Chinese and Russian businesses created potential “criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” and alarmed US officials who perceived an ethical conflict of interest and flagged potential crimes ranging from sex trafficking to bribery.

 

Hunter Biden

 

The findings are contained in a joint report by the GOP-led Senate Homeland and Government Affairs and Senate Finance Committees, released just six days before the first Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and President Trump.

 

According to the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, suspicious financial transactions between Hunter Biden’s firms and foreign nationals from Russia and China – including a CCP-linked Chinese businessman, raised serious concerns. What’s more, Hunter’s seat on the board of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma while his father served as the Obama administration point-man for Ukraine, worried State Department officials in 2015 and 2016.

 

One official, Amos Hochstein, told the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance committees that he said to then-Vice President Joe Biden in October 2015 that Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma “enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.

 

Hunter Biden, now 50, joined Burisma’s board of directors in April 2014, shortly after his father, Joe Biden, took over as the Obama administration’s chief liaison to Ukraine. Daily Caller

 

As Ross notes, while the report does not produce direct evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden, Republicans say the evidence paints a troubling picture of Biden receiving “millions of dollars from foreign sources as a result of business relationships that he built during the period when his father was vice president of the United States and after.”

 

Hunter Biden also received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, according to the report.

 

And as Just The News‘ John Solomon writes, “Perhaps the most explosive revelation was that the U.S. Treasury Department flagged payments collected overseas by Hunter Biden and business partner Devon Archer for possible illicit activities.

 

The so-called Suspicious Activity Reports flagged millions of dollars in transactions from the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, a Russian oligarch named Yelena Baturina, and Chinese businessmen with ties to Beijing’s communist government, the report said. Senate investigators have yet to determine if the FBI or others investigated the concerns. –Just The News

 

“The Treasury records acquired by the Chairmen show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals,” reads the 87-page report. Other transactions involving Biden-controlled firms were flagged for “potential criminal financial activity,” including wire transfers to Hunter’s Uncle, James Biden.

 

The report focuses on millions of dollars in wire payments that Hunter Biden’s firms received from Ye Jianming, the founder of CEFC China Energy Co., and Gongwen Dong, a U.S.-based associate of Ye’s.

 

According to Republicans, Ye has “extensive” connections to the Chinese government.

 

The Senate report says that on Aug. 4, 2017, a subsidiary of Ye’s company called CEFC Infrastructure Investment (US) LLC, wired $100,000 to Owasco, the Biden law firm.

 

A month later, on Sept. 8, 2017, Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong applied for a $100,000 line of credit under a shell company they formed called Hudson West III LLC, according to the Senate report.

 

Biden, his uncle James, and James’s wife, Sara Biden, accessed the account through credit cards, and spent $101,291 on what Republicans call “extravagant items,” including plane tickets, hotels, restaurants and items at Apple stores.Daily Caller

 

Meanwhile, according to US government records cited in the report, concerns were raised over potential ties to sex and human trafficking rings.

 

Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring,” the report reads.

 

Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson told Just The News that the sheer volume of potentially illegal activity in Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings left Joe Biden vulnerable to illicit influence or extortion.

 

Hunter & Joe Biden affectionate embrace

 

“The report raises serious questions that former Vice President Biden needs to answer. There are simply too many potential conflict of interest, counterintelligence and extortion threats to ignore,” he said.

 

The Biden campaign has called the Senate report an effort to “subsidize a foreign attack against the sovereignty of our elections with taxpayer dollars” and to push a “long-disproven, hardcore rightwing conspiracy theory.”

 

And of course Biden’s media defenders are hard at work today:

 

The findings, as compiled by the Daily Wire‘s Ryan Saavedra:

 

  • In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent, raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed, and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, “Furthermore, the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”

 

  • In October 2015, senior State Department official Amos Hochstein raised concerns with Vice President Biden, as well as with Hunter Biden, that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.

 

  • Although Kent believed that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board was awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine, the Committees are only aware of two individuals — Kent and former U.S. Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein — who raised concerns to Vice President Joe Biden (Hochstein) or his staff (Kent).

 

  • The awkwardness for Obama administration officials continued well past his presidency. Former Secretary of State John Kerry had knowledge of Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board, but when asked about it at a town hall event in Nashua, N.H. on Dec. 8, 2019, Kerry falsely said, “I had no knowledge about any of that. None. No.” Evidence to the contrary is detailed in Section V.

 

  • Former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland testified that confronting oligarchs would send an anticorruption message in Ukraine. Kent told the Committees that Zlochevsky was an “odious oligarch.” However, in December 2015, instead of following U.S. objectives of confronting oligarchs, Vice President Biden’s staff advised him to avoid commenting on Zlochevsky and recommended he say, “I’m not going to get into naming names or accusing individuals.”

 

  • Hunter Biden was serving on Burisma’s board (supposedly consulting on corporate governance and transparency) when Zlochevsky allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Vitaly Yarema, to “shut the case against Zlochevsky.” Kent testified that this bribe occurred in December 2014 (seven months after Hunter joined Burisma’s board), and, after learning about it, he and the Resident Legal Advisor reported this allegation to the FBI.

 

  • Hunter Biden was a U.S. Secret Service protectee from Jan. 29, 2009 to July 8, 2014. A day before his last trip as a protectee, Time published an article describing Burisma’s ramped up lobbying efforts to U.S. officials and Hunter’s involvement in Burisma’s board. Before ending his protective detail, Hunter Biden received Secret Service protection on trips to multiple foreign locations, including Moscow, Beijing, Doha, Paris, Seoul, Manila, Tokyo, Mexico City, Milan, Florence, Shanghai, Geneva, London, Dublin, Munich, Berlin, Bogota, Abu Dhabi, Nairobi, Hong Kong, Taipei, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Johannesburg, Brussels, Madrid, Mumbai and Lake Como.

 

  • Andrii Telizhenko, the Democrats’ personification of Russian disinformation, met with Obama administration officials, including Elisabeth Zentos, a member of Obama’s National Security Council, at least 10 times. A Democrat lobbying firm, Blue Star Strategies, contracted with Telizhenko from 2016 to 2017 and continued to request his assistance as recent as the summer of 2019. A recent news article detailed other extensive contacts between Telizhenko and Obama administration officials.

 

  • In addition to the over $4 million paid by Burisma for Hunter Biden’s and Archer’s board memberships, Hunter Biden, his family, and Archer received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds.

 

  • Archer received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.

 

  • Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.

 

  • Hunter Biden opened a bank account with Gongwen Dong to fund a $100,000 global spending spree with James Biden and Sara Biden.

 

  • Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.

 

  • Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an “Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”

 

Imagine if this was anyone with the last name Trump?
