Hunter "of Millions" Biden Becomes the Prey

The majority report put out jointly by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance (text here), "Hunter Biden, Burisma and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns," makes for some disturbing reading. We should congratulate the authors for writing so well, and digging out lots of information despite the failure to cooperate and other obstruction by former Obama officials.

I won't summarize the report in any detail; you can read it and weep on your own.

 Let me, however, state that the report does show the Biden family as avaricious and highly corrupt. Hunter, the drug-addicted and ne'er-do-well son of Joe Biden, showed no hesitation in using his last name to secure megabuck deals with the corrupt Burisma corporation in Ukraine, and to get millions from corrupt Ukrainian and Russian oligarchs. State Department officials, named in the report, warned the Department and the Vice President's office that Hunter's activities lent, at a minimum, the appearance of a "conflict of interest" given that Vice President Biden served as the point man for Obama on Ukraine (and China). 

I found even worse than his dealings with Ukraine and Russia (Mueller and Schiff, call your offices), Hunter's dealings with the Chinese. These included setting up the sale of a US company that manufactured military technology to a CCP/PLA-controlled firm; getting billions (yes, with a 'b') from the Chinese to invest in the US; and even getting the Chinese to set up a large checking account (of at least $100,000) for unrestricted use by himself as well as by his uncle and others of the Biden clan. Hunter Biden, of course, traveled with his dad on Air Force 2 to China where he pursued his lucrative deal-making.

Veep Biden and SecState Kerry, aware of these activities, did nothing to prevent them, turning a blind eye when not facilitating the needed USG permissions for certain sales. 

I think this report has scratched the surface. 

If we dig a bit deeper, we will find much more corruption. The mass media, of course, either ignore the report, try to make it appear a baseless GOP hit job, or state that nothing directly links Joe to the corruption. Right-o, boys.

I understand Senator Paul has forwarded the report to the DOJ recommending further action. Good.

  1. Lewis, I think you are correct about the corruption going much deeper in the Ukraine. I think that the country has been used as a graft center for many years, and when President Trump made that phone call and wanted to kill their cash train, something had to be done.

  2. Biden answers to a different set of laws than those of us out here in flyover country so by Washingtons standards he's innocent as a baby lambr in the spring.

  3. Will the Democrat's Propaganda machine even note this, other than a "Right wing" conspiracy?

  4. There is a meme that shows a photo of our soldiers patrolling in Iraq or Afghan, contrasted with photos of Biden, Pelosi, and Kerry with their sons dressed in suits, captioned: "They send our sons to the Middle East. They send their sons to Ukraine".

    It is a very very effective image. Find it, or make yourself one, and use it.

    1. Yes, Kerry stepsons were just as involved as Biden.

  5. From Scott Adams (Dilbert cartoonist): "Now I understand why Biden is the Democratic candidate despite being so obviously incapable. The plotters need a cover-up guy who has the same exposure they do. This isn't an election so much as an escape plan."

  6. Hunter emanates the unmistakable aura of a strung-out grifter. I pine for the olden days when our crooks could at least maintain a thin patina of respectability that would pass a cursory inspection, if not a smell test. Relatedly, check out the documentary "Filthy rich". The mask has slipped and it is horrific. Some credit to Trump. We badly need a bloody house cleaning. I use bloody in the literal sense, not in the gay english sense. Just to clarify.

  7. I find it amusing y'all think the Senate Republicans were somehow not throwing everything they could find into the report, and that there is still more.

    Even more amusing is straining the Hunter Biden gnat and swallowing the Donald Trump camel.

    Carry on.

    1. Yes, this is the DNC message. Thanks for making it clear. If Trump had fixed a parking ticket, it would have been NYT headline news four years ago.

    2. I think of those lines as Silly Moral Equivalents. Someone uncovering Dem corruption and graft used a split infinitive, so his/her entire argument should be discarded.

    4. Michael K,

      Well it made headlines when Trump used his office to force people to use his properties if they wanted a visit with him, or required the military to use his luxury properties for soldiers, or when his kids sold real estate with promises of access to Trump for buyers above a certain level. Of course, they were quickly forgotten. I haven't seen any parking tickets yet, but that might be an October surprise.

      Were this your blog, I'd be gone.

      Anonymous,

      On the contrary, I am here to listen, and I listen carefully. I am also amused by the notion people have that others would agree with them, if they only listened.

    8. Then Listen-Up Brow-beat! You have nasty habit of trollish behavior, which you use to degrade and deflect the intention and content of the resident Posters & Commentators!

      Moreover, you over-->use the word "amuse", which is an obvious 'Tell' on your self-esteem handicap... it is also probably clear to the readers on this BLOG, that you have unresolved emotional issues, and are venting your personal problems disguised as concocted socialist dogma.

      It would be wise for you to seek counseling, in lieu of pissing in your neighbors Garden!

      No, I've been asked why I am here, which is not the same thing, to me.

      can count the number of your valuable contributions here on my third hand.

      Recently, there was debunking the covid19 misinformation and pointing out that the picture of the Obama's house showed a lake, not an ocean. I don't aim to show any too grand here.

    "If Trump had fixed a parking ticket, it would have been NYT headline news four years ago."

    Of course, what the ChiCom/Democrats intend, is to continue to buy the 'Rats and cronies w/$$$, obstruct the U.S. President, supply & empower the marxist MOBs in the streets, and ensure that the Chinese Communists continue to advance their planned destruction of the West, clearing the path for their World-Wide gangsta domination...

    Point is, they've backed the USA, and most of the Free World up to the precipice! The question is, will the GOP, empowered by the TRUMP electorate, (aka deplorables) be STRONG enough, and WISE enough, to PUSH BACK until the anti-American Wars are WON~~~ REMEMBER the CHICOM Flu!
