Now that some of the secrets of the Biden family business are no longer secret, it’s easy to imagine Joe Biden asking the same question Robert Redford asked in the 1972 film “The Candidate”. After winning a Senate race he didn’t expect to win, Redford turns to his manager and asks, “What do we do now?”
This is the end of the film, but the Bidens story is only just beginning. What Joe Biden has to do now is start telling the truth. The whole truth.
Until now, the Democratic presidential candidate has managed to get away with the pretense that he never talked to his son Hunter about Hunter’s suspicious affairs in Ukraine, China and elsewhere. The repeated claim was never credible, especially when it was revealed that Hunter flew Air Force Two with his father to Beijing and returned home with a $ 1
So they flew to China and got back together and we should believe that the father never asked his son who he saw in China and why.
Come on, man.
Joe’s defense knows nothing has now been exposed as a lie by The Post’s publication of an email from a Ukrainian adviser to Burisma, the energy company that put Hunter on its board for up to $ 83,000 a year. month. In the email, Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for arranging a meeting with then-Vice President Biden.
“Thank you for inviting me to Washington and for giving the opportunity to meet your father and spend it [sic] some time together “, reads the message of April 17, 2015.
Joe Biden’s assistants do not dispute the email, nor deny that the two men met. Their only defense is that there was no such meeting on the vice president’s official schedule. It’s a loophole big enough for a truck to pass through.
So Joe knew a lot and the audience deserves the truth about what he did to help his son monetize the vice presidency. However, my idea of where this story will go in the next few days is that the Ukrainian corner will not be the main focus.
China will be. If the emerging pieces of the puzzle fit together as suggested, the Americans will find that the entire family was making money with Joe Biden’s prominence, including Joe himself, by making deals with elements of the Chinese government.
Once again, The Post was the first to open the door, this time by posting the email showing that Hunter and Jim Biden, Joe’s brother, were part of a group looking to partner with Chinese individuals. , involving energy projects and perhaps American infrastructure. Millions of dollars were talked about, making the deal a boon for the Bidens and a propaganda coup for China.
The email, sent by one of the American partners to Hunter and two others, detailed large cash payments to the partners, as well as any holdings. Hunter, referred to as “H”, had to get 20% and the deal said “10 Jim” and “10 withheld by H for the big boy?”
Sources confirmed to Fox News that the “big shot” was Joe Biden. I was told by another person familiar with the agreement that there are documents and other evidence of Joe Biden’s involvement.
If that’s true, Joe didn’t just know about this deal. It was in it – right up to her eyes.
One possible defense is that the email was dated May 13, 2017, five months after leaving office, and so he was free to make such arrangements. There are two problems with this topic.
First, I’ve heard previous emails show that discussions with people in China started much earlier, while Joe Biden was still vice president. They could reveal at least one serious conflict of interest.
Second, the mere fact that Biden intended to make money working with China after he left the White House is an explosive election issue. For good reason, the vast majority of Americans have an unfavorable view of China and would likely punish a candidate who tried to do business with the Communist government.
With the election clock ticking, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Yet Biden has failed the first test of how he will handle the scandal.
Asked by a CBS reporter on Friday to respond to reports from the Post, the Democrat called it a “smear campaign” and scolded the reporter for asking the question.
That will not work. Good journalists won’t be intimidated, and voters risk sniffing a rat if it’s unwilling to answer legitimate questions.
By now Biden should know that there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.
Furthermore, President Trump is certain he will accuse Biden of rampant corruption in Thursday’s debate, so the Democrats need a better explanation or the matter could explode in a matter of days.
The developments are also a test for Big Media and Big Tech companies running a Biden security racket. Facebook and Twitter prevented users from sharing the Post’s initial reports, an outrageous example of political meddling. For their efforts, the companies were rewarded with congressional subpoenas this week for testifying.
CNN, the New York Times and the television networks are trying to help Biden by ignoring the story or dismantling it. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius went full steam on Saturday for defense offering the absurd opinion that Burisma’s tale “is not a scandal but part of a personal tragedy for the vice president’s son, aggravated by this week’s release of what appears to be misinformation about The Role of Joe Biden. “
It is true that Hunter Biden’s drugged life is worthy of sympathy, but that does not absolve him of his father’s assault on power and certainly does not absolve him if he violated his oath of office and public trust.
As for Ignatius’s misinformation claim, this would undoubtedly be Russian misinformation. The whole thing is just Vladimir Putin trying to help his main American agent, Donald Trump, right?
This was Deep State’s line in 2016 and it worked so well back then. Ask President Hillary Clinton.
Blasio’s free ride is over
The decision by the city’s first lady, Chirlane McCray, not to run for president of the Brooklyn borough is bad news for Mayor de Blasio. Now the family will roll off the government payroll in January 2022 and both will need to find real jobs. It should be interesting.
De Blasio certainly gave his wife every opportunity. She created ThriveNYC, a poorly defined mental health agency, to show her talents, and she responded by blowing $ 1 billion with little to show for it. Can taxpayers get a refund?
Love? You can kiss him goodbye!
From Breitbart News: “A couple in the city of Milan in northern Italy was fined 400 euros by the police after kissing in public, violating the rules on the Wuhan virus”.
No kiss in Italy? The world has gone mad.
