Today our “Saturday Bullet Points” have been relegated to the bench. Why? We have dived into the corruption that has long been expected but now exposed about the Joe Biden family in Europe and elsewhere. Joe Biden has maintained for years he knew nothing about his son Hunter’s businesses. Documents and other evidence de-classified tell a different story. This will be a trilogy: three parts of giving you facts about the actions of members of the Biden family. And for the former Vice President who is now running for President, his actions appear to be at least tremendous examples of conflict-of-interest if not outright political corruption that includes illegalities.
“Saturday Bullet Points” will return next Saturday.
It’s nothing new: son of former Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, made millions of dollars in various financial ventures in Europe and Asia. And Biden the younger did NOT make all that money the “old fashioned way:” hard work taking an idea and parlaying it over a period of years into a financial miracle story. No, Hunter Biden made his millions in one way: being the son of the second most powerful person in the U.S. Government — Joe Biden who was Vice President at the time.
Apparently it all began when the Vice President was assigned by President Obama to be the “overseer” of the government of Ukraine on behalf of the U.S. Hmmm… One might ask why that little nation would require monitoring by the U.S. Vice President. After all, Ukraine had very little to do with our nation. One would probably NOT know that Ukraine is infamous for being one of the most financially corrupt countries in Europe for a generation or longer. Ukraine’s leaders were viewed as little more than shopkeepers who perpetually open the Ukraine cash registers of corruption in for anyone who brings in a dollar to “spread around.”
Money laundering was the specialty of Ukraine’s financial evildoers. Large companies — like Burisma Holdings, the company that hired Hunter Biden to serve on their board of directors — through many years waded in and out of legal troubles for moving money in and out of Ukraine, funneling foreign funds through various European banks to “clean.” Often those funds after a while just simply disappeared.
Hunter Biden hit the jackpot when his Dad took the Ukraine gig from Obama. He tagged along with his father. Some in the Biden camp claim that the Vice President did nothing but just what he was empowered to do by Obama — make certain Ukraine “kept their noses clean.” There are numerous stories floating around Europe regarding Joe Biden’s movement of U.S. dollars earmarked as “aid” for Ukraine. Allegedly, much of that $1 billion made its way around the pinwheel of laundering banks in Europe and then ended up in Ukraine — or at least part of it did.
Hunter in an interview was asked if his success in Europe and Asia had anything to do with the fact that his father was the U.S. Vice President. He thought for a moment, and said “Yes, I guess it had to be because of that.”
On numerous occasions, the Vice President has been questioned by members of the media about his knowledge of Hunter’s business in Europe. Joe has always adamantly insisted he knew nothing about any of it. But, that seems to NOT be the truth.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has “not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son’s involvement in Burisma” or the problem it caused for the Obama administration, Molly Hemingway said Wednesday night. Reacting to the mainstream media and Democrats downplaying the report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings while his father was vice president, the Federalist senior editor said there is “truly breaking news” in the report. “While this is focused on Hunter Biden and James Biden and other family members of Joe Biden, not Joe Biden himself, it is also true that Joe Biden was revealed to have not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son’s involvement in Burisma, the Ukrainian energy concern,” Hemingway reported.
The Democratic nominee “said he didn’t know about it when the report shows that in fact, some bureaucrats were so concerned about Hunter Biden’s role that they had briefed him, that they had alerted the FBI,” she said.
The 87-page report states, “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.”
Hemingway points out “It did cause a problem during the Obama Administration that there was this conflict of interest. It was not dealt with and we again are still awaiting answers as to exactly all the problems that caused.” She rejected the media’s claims there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden, “who has no known skill set that would put him in a position to be doing business with foreign leaders,” in dealings with Russia and China.
“We saw a lot of people in the media claim that this is old news which was an interesting approach to take, given that they hadn’t reported any of this news beforehand and some of it was truly breaking news such as the wire transfer between the Russian oligarch who was married to the former mayor of Moscow, $3.5 million to Hunter Biden,” Hemingway said.
What this revelation means is that former Vice President Biden has lied on numerous occasions when asked by multiple people about his knowledge of his son’s business in Europe. As recently as Tuesday of this week, at the completion of a speech when speaking to the press, he was asked once more about his personal knowledge of Hunter’s Ukrainian businesses. He angrily stated and restated he had never even spoken to his son about any business matters.
Both Joe and Hunter Biden unfortunately find themselves in a bit of a pickle: evidence and documents recently de-classified provide evidence of just how deep and wide the Biden businesses have been in multiple nations. And much of that “business” has been of questionable dealings that encompass possible human and sex trafficking and prostituion.
We’ll dive in a bit deeper in tomorrow’s Part II of this expose’. But, be assured, while Vice President, Joe Biden put his youngest son Hunter in the right places to maximize the power of the U.S. vice presidency without Biden the elder actually going hands-0n.
The next chapter of this bizarre political novel will take us East. We’ll hitch a ride with Vice President Joe Biden on Air Force Two (along with Hunter) on a trip to Beijing — the second stop on the “Hunter Biden Business Treasure Hunt” this time the treasure came from the hands of the Chinese Communist Party and an investment company owned by the Chinese Government.
And Part II will NOT be the Epilogue to this novel: there’s more. We’ll have Part III of this trilogy.
