These are not good days for our Constitution and democracy.
We now know with almost 100% certainty that Joe Biden, while Vice President of the United States, gave foreigners access to him via large payments to his drug-addled son and other members of his family. That access gained these foreigners the changes they apparently sought in US foreign policy. Along with SecState Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden probably ran the greatest pay-for-play scheme in our government's history. This Obama administration corruption took place on an historic scale.
We know, for example, that Hillary Clinton, the Democrat candidate for President in 2016, cooked up the Trump-Putin collusion story, paid foreign operatives to produce a fake dossier outlining that "collusion," and then, with the support of the DNC-mass media complex, important corrupt Congressmen such as Adam Schiff, key DOJ personnel, the FBI and even a Special Prosecutor got the government to spend years "investigating" the fake story in an attempt to take down a legitimately elected President of the United States.
We also know that the Clinton Foundation was a "pay for play" scheme, along with Bill Clinton's huge speech fees, which served to launder bribe money for the Clintons in exchange for access and lucrative contracts, e.g. mobile phone service in Haiti. The Clintons are proven masters at laundering bribes--look at the old Whitewater scandal, for example. I, my very own self, recall how we State Department types got dragged into "raising money for Haiti" following a major earthquake. Over at the OAS, we hosted a big meeting with wealthy Haitian-Americans--they do quite well as immigrants--and put the squeeze on them to pledge huge sums of money. None of us ever heard what happened with that and other moneys pledged for Haiti. I remember that State had a number of dueling offices ostensibly in charge of Haitian relief. Total confusion; nobody knew who had control, how much money existed or where it sat. All this ended with an announcement that Hillary's long-time aide and lawyer, Cheryl Mills, would take charge of Haitian relief. What happened next? Silence. Total mystery.
It seems certain that Obama knew about this corruption by Biden and Clinton, and either kept silent or actively abetted it. Biden also played a role in the Russia collusion scandal by promoting the idea that incoming NSC head General Flynn should face prosecution and persecution for "contacts" with the Russian Ambassador. It, of course, proved a giant fraud, one that to this day continues to ripple through the media with continued references to the thoroughly debunked Trump-Russia collusion tale.
What now has become ever clearer is the massive scale of the corruption by the Biden family. Let us not forget that Biden, a life-long "public servant," has become a multi-millionaire. The info thus far released from the Hunter Biden laptop--which the FBI has had since at least last December--provides a look into how the scheme worked. Joe Biden was the Capo, while his brother and Hunter were the collectors. They took in huge sums from China, Ukraine, Romania, and elsewhere, maybe even from little Costa Rica. In exchange for large sums, they, for example, hooked up corrupt oligarchs with the VP. We know that Joe used his power as the point man on Ukraine to get the cash-strapped Ukrainian government to fire a pesky prosecutor looking into the corrupt Burisma energy company on whose board Hunter served for a huge salary. Joe has bragged openly about how he bullied the Ukrainians into firing the prosecutor. It also seems from preliminary information that members of the John Kerry and the Mitt Romney clans took part in the great cash grab. Silence from the hopelessly corrupt FBI.
Rumors exist, and they might well prove true--I'll bet they are--that the laptop contains highly pornographic pictures and video of drug-freak Hunter Biden in action, including with underage girls, apparently while in China. If true, the Chinese intel services have this stuff, and the PRC has no reservations about using it to blackmail Hunter and Joe. This might help explain Obama's reluctance to push too hard for Biden's nomination, and his warning to Joe about running, "You don't have to do this."
The shameful attempt at a media blackout on the story is failing. With only two weeks left until the election, Biden has disappeared from the campaign trail. He does not plan to reappear until the Thursday debate, where, presumably, President Trump will press him on the scandal--leftist debate moderator not withstanding.
Think about it: Joe Biden was the best candidate the Dems had. To steal a line from Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Morning Coming Down," Biden was the Dems' "cleanest dirty shirt." That tells you what kind of closet they had.
Sad times for the Great Republic.
