Biden Corrupt: Water Wet

 

Biden crime family Joe and HunterI have said it before, but it bears repeating: no one has ever bribed Hunter Biden. He is a poor, lost, drug-addled soul who likely would be unemployable but for the fact that his father is a well-known politician. His role was to act as a bagman, lining up and collecting bribes for his father in the form of “business deals” with the Red Chinese and operators like Carlos Slim.

John Hinderaker, Power Line Blog

This is no joke for America and the world. Joe Biden is actually compromised by a long series of “legal” bribes taken from Ukrainian/ Russian “businessmen,” Chinese businesses that are necessarily the tools of the Chinese Communist Party, and now we find that he may have been on the payroll of a Mexican citizen, one of the richest men in the world, Carlos Slim. We absolutely should start from the position that every move involving those countries, made in the name of pResident Biden, is service rendered for prior payment to the Biden crime family.

2015 snapshot: Joe and Hunter Biden with Carlos Slim

Miranda Devine writes at the New York Post that “Hunter Biden used Joe’s VP perks to pursue deal with Carlos Slim.”

Hunter Biden used the perks of the vice presidency — parties, meetings with Joe Biden and flights on Air Force Two — to pursue business deals with Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim while his father was in office, records show.

We do not have proof, yet, of any of these newly identified deals being completed. What we have is evidence of a pattern of behavior by the Bidens, with Hunter traveling on Air Force Two and promising or delivering access to his father in pursuit of financing for various squirrelly deals. The same batch of newly mined emails are even uglier on the Ukraine/Russian front, as Jonathan Turley lays on his own website:

The new emails contain additional information directly contradicting President Biden. In addition to earlier pictures from golf trips and references to his involvement or knowledge, new material refers to a notable dinner arranged in Washington, D.C.

Hunter arranged for then Vice President Biden to have dinner on April 16, 2015 with his Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates. They appropriately chose a private room at Café Milano, a Georgetown restaurant that brags that it is “Where the world’s most powerful people go.”  After the dinner, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father: “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”

It is clear that Hunter Biden was selling access and influence. It appears that Joe Biden was aware of that effort. That is very serious.  If these emails are false, this is a major story. If they are true, this is a major scandal.  

“Ukrainian energy company” should be read as “Ukrainian natural gas middlemen.” Understand that and you understand that “Ukrainian” means “associates of Russian Gazprom.” So we are talking about the major economic tool of national power for Putin. This makes sense of the current administration’s sudden effective support for Putin’s plan to dominate his neighbors with the power to cut off energy to anyone between him and Germany, bypassing all but Western Europe with the Nord Stream 2 North Sea pipeline. In one year, with the plandemic and the Big Steal, we went from “The U.S. Is Close to Killing Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline” to “Blinken Says Nord Stream 2’s Completion Is a ‘Fait Accompli’.”

All this puts Europe and us in greater military danger, as Putin gets more economic power over Europe and so has more freedom to apply more military pressure, directly or with “little green men.” The CCP is similarly seeing greater freedom, again, to apply the threat of military force. We will likely see more instances in both the Pacific and Europe where mistakes could be made with terrible consequences. That is part of the real cost of our corrupt ruling elite.

    Whatever happened to that “the President is an existential threat to the Republic” and “this is a hill to die on” guy from around these parts? His hair-trigger on impeachment should have been tripped long ago. It almost seems as if he wasn’t conversing with us in good faith.

    It’s too bad that the entire media can’t be arrested for aiding and abetting. . .

    Carlos Slim is connected with the cartels and you need look no further to understand the border situation. I hope that is where the reporting is going. And then Slim bankrolls the New York Times. So don’t expect anything from the newspaper of record.

    Republicans would have more credibility on this if they policed and called out their own. Mitch McConnell’s wife is profiting from her family’s own China connections and by extension McConnell. Then there’s Neil Bush. Washington is an equal opportunity  sleaze cesspool.

    Wow – very disturbing – our country is very vulnerable right now. No one (B administration) answers to any of this – it just gets squashed, while they focus on “the insurrection”.  I was wondering why the WH fireworks, instead of red, white and blue like Macy’s, were all red and yellow……..talk about a giant Indian smoke signal…..

    I think it is actually personal. I wonder how the conversations between him and the maternal figure he clearly cares about played out over her voting choices.

    Also tied to Biden Inc is John Kerry – Hunter’s business partner was John Kerry’s step son

    DC media ignored this for years 

    Is the dirty secret is DC media won’t report on this because someone that they know is involved in these schemes

    Yes. Peter Schweizer has written a series of books on the perfectly legal, because they wrote the laws, corruption by political families.

    You can bet that Miranda Devine has been declared an Enemy of the State and is now the subject of intense federal scrutiny by all of the intelligence forces at the disposal of the Biden Crime Family.

    And I recommend every one of them.  Americans were warned.  They chose to believe an American media that Goebbels would have envied.

    Now, the Bidens don’t even bother to hide their venality; Hunter’s latest venture of “painting” will probably make him millions.  And the MSM simply yawn and look the other way.

    Yes. The New York Post reports “Hunter Biden art show sparks ethics concerns.”

    Walter Shaub, who led the Office of Government Ethics under President Barack Obama, told the paper that the art buyers having their identities protected created a host of problems.

    “Because we don’t know who is paying for this art and we don’t know for sure that [Hunter Biden] knows, we have no way of monitoring whether people are buying access to the White House,” he said.

    “What these people are paying for is Hunter Biden’s last name.”

    Painter also referenced the issue of anonymity, noting that foreign governments or lobbyists could buy the art through intermediaries in an effort to curry favor with the Biden White House.
