On Friday, I wrote about Hunter Biden’s laptop, the October Surprise of the 2020 US presidential election.

On Saturday, October 24, the New York Post (NYP) published a good summary of Biden corruption claims over the past several years.

An excerpt from ‘Biden corruption claims all but confirmed with Hunter emails’ follows, emphases mine.

In 2018, the NYP published a book, Secret Empires.

Since the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop surfaced, the NYP article says:

This material suggests that, despite Joe Biden’s insistence that he knew nothing about his family’s business deals, he was well aware of his son Hunter Biden’s business ventures in China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and elsewhere.

These new troves constitute hard evidence of Biden family corruption, and confirm our reporting dating back to our 2018 book “Secret Empires.”

In 2018, when we first broke the foreign influence scandals that have now engulfed the former vice president, it seemed apparent that China and Ukraine were not paying Biden’s family members for their expertise, they were buying access to the vice president of the United States. This was never a scandal solely about Hunter or Joe’s brothers, James and Frank. It was, and has always been, a Joe Biden scandal.

For nearly three years, Biden and his surrogates have responded to the scandal with an increasingly unconvincing series of denials — including another from the former Vice President in his last debate with President Trump.

In response to “Secret Empires,” one of Joe Biden’s aides said “we aren’t going to engage on a politically motivated hit pieces …” Team Biden did not bother to respond to specific allegations that the Biden family vacuumed up millions, in the exact locales where Biden was Obama’s policy “point man.”

When the issue reemerged during the campaign, Team Biden continued to call it a “conspiracy theory” but this time, Joe Biden firmly put himself on record. “I have never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses — period,” he told reporters in August 2019.

“I never talk with my son or my brother or anyone else in the distant family about their business interests, period.” He repeated similar blanket denials on numerous occasions.

These denials all proved to be untruthful. Period.

Perhaps this is why Joe Biden rarely gives a press conference.

The article goes on to summarise their research into the Bidens’ business dealings, much of which I wrote about last Friday.

Twitter locked the NYP‘s account several days ago. The ban continues:

However, even less combustible content, such as Biden’s flip-flops on fracking, also faces censorship. This has to do with YouTube:

Hmm, sounds a bit like China:

Returning to the Biden corruption story, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) posted an article on October 22, ‘Now Corruption Story Is About Joe, Not Hunter’.

It discusses how Big Media, with the exception of Newsweek, are ignoring the Hunter Biden laptop story:

The recent media blackout on the Biden family business remains largely intact. The story did get a mention in a weekly newsletter from the public editor at National Public Radio. Beginning around paragraph 16, Kelly McBride addresses a listener’s question:

Carolyn Abbott writes: Someone please explain why NPR has apparently not reported on the Joe Biden, Hunter Biden story in the last week or so that Joe did know about Hunter’s business connections in Europe that Joe had previously denied.

Ms. McBride then spends a paragraph disparaging the Post and clinging to the hope that the emails are not legitimate before acknowledging:

But the biggest reason you haven’t heard much on NPR about the Post story is that the assertions don’t amount to much.

“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” NPR Managing Editor for News Terence Samuel told me. “And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”

The WSJ article concludes:

This column takes a back seat to no one in skepticism about the Beltway establishment. But given the documented overseas riches collected by the Biden family, it would be patently unfair to claim that the average Washingtonian is as corrupt as the former vice president.

On August 19, Town & Country explained how Joe and his educator wife Dr Jill Biden amassed their wealth. This has nothing to do with the NYP‘s reporting but only with speaking engagements and investments. How can people somehow amass so much money from politics and education? Astounding:

As recently as November 2009, Joe Biden’s net worth was less than $30,000, according to CBS, but life post-vice presidency has been quite lucrative for President Obama’s former number two. When Biden released his financial disclosures in July of 2019, they showed that he and his wife Jill had earned more than $15 million in 2017 and 2018.

More specifically, the Bidens reported an adjusted gross income of roughly $11 million in 2017 and $4.6 million in 2018. The bulk of that number comes from a multi-book deal with Flatiron Books valued at $8 million per Publishers Weekly, but the Bidens also earned a sizable income from speaking engagements.

The AP reports that Biden’s basic speaking fee was $100,000, but it ranged from $40,000 to $190,000. The New York Times also notes that Biden made additional unpaid speaking engagements during this time which are not listed on the disclosure, citing his campaign.

Additionally, the disclosures reveal that the former VP earned $540,000 as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement

His wife, Dr. Jill Biden also recently shared that she will continue to teach at community college, even if her husband is elected. “It’s important,” she said, “and I want people to value teachers and know their contributions, and lift up the profession.”

Steve Bannon has been digging around the contents of the emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop. On October 23, the Gateway Pundit reported (emphasis in the original):

The Steve Bannon War Room released an email from China’s Communist Party operative Xin Wang to Hunter Biden and Eric Schwerin from 2018 regarding a loan agreement. In the email Xin Wang offers to extend the loan agreement to December 13, 2019.

This raises several questions including was this agreement with the CCP presented to the IRS or SEC?
If not that would be unlawful.

The War Room says they have signatures.

Two days earlier, Bannon told Revolver News (emphasis in the original):

This shocking development demands that the President call in FBI Director Wray immediately to explain how that agency suppressed the information on Biden’s hard drive for almost a year. If Wray cannot explain himself, he should be summarily fired in front of the Resolute Desk. This is now a national security crisis driven by the craven behavior of the Bidens. A storm is gathering around Biden’s campaign and no gang of Silicon Valley social media oligarchs can shield them from their fate.

Earlier, on October 18, Bannon also gave an interview to Sky News Australia:

The YouTube description says, in part:

The emails revealed that Hunter Biden had planned to introduce his father – the then Vice President- to an executive at Ukrainian energy company Burisma, a company where Hunter served on the board of directors.

Joe Biden has lied about this for years, and it’s pretty stunning the information that has come off this hard drive. It’s really shocked the United States,” Mr Bannon said.

“Joe Biden has said, categorically, my family has nothing to do with, no financial relationship with China and the Chinese communist party.”

I think what we have here now, we’ve brought in a number of experts to look at this, we have a massive national security issue with Joe Biden and the people around him.

I don’t think Joe Biden today could get a security clearance, so I don’t know how in 16 days he’s going to stand and run for commander in chief of the United States.”

Speaking of Burisma, recently, former Secretary of State John Kerry explained to Biden campaigners how important it was to get rid of a prosecutor in Ukraine. What Kerry leaves unsaid is WHY the prosecutor had to go: he was going to investigate Burisma. Biden, then vice president, even said that Ukraine would not get US money until the prosecutor was fired. It’s all in this short video:

Joe Biden’s brother, James, also made money thanks to Joe’s position as vice president. President Trump brought this up at one of the two presidential debates. The information comes from a book that came out early this year: Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite by Peter Schweizer, the president of the Government Accountability Institute.

James Biden was able to get a lucrative contract in Iraq, of all places, to build homes. Allegedly, James Biden knows nothing about building homes.

David Harris Jr’s site has an excellent summary of the contract: ‘Fact Check: Donald Trump Says Joe Biden’s Brother “Made Money in Iraq”‘.

The article’s author, Steven Ahle, explains (emphases mine):

During the debate, President Trump made the claaim that Biden’s brother James made millions of dollars in Iraq. Biden did not comment.

As it turns out, James was made executive vice president of HillStone International. Shortly thereafter Hillstone got a $1.5 billion dollar contract in Iraq to build 100,000 homes.

The thing is that neither James Biden or Hillstone had a lick of experience in building homes. How could a company with no experience get such a large contract with no experience. The same way that Hunter became a board member of Burisma. Joe.

I’ll give you three guesses who was in charge of humanitarian aid in Iraq. Joe Biden.

Ahle went on to excerpt Peter Schweizer’s book:

He detailed all of the conflicts of interest that made the Bidens rich. Kevin Justice, founder, and president of Hillstone International was summoned to the White House where he spoke to Michele Smith, a top aide to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Smith was the liaison to “global government officials and business executives.”

And why did HillStone hire James Biden when there are tens of thousands of candidates with actual experience in building? My guess is because none of them had experience in being the brother of the vice president. You have to have your priorities.

Here’s the book excerpt (emphasis in the original):

Schweizer explained in January:

[James Biden] landed a very lucrative job in the construction business. Essentially what happened is, a guy named Kevin Justice — a longtime Biden family friend — in November of 2010, went and visited the white House and met with Joe Biden’s people in Joe Biden’s office. He started a company called HillStone International, a construction company. Three weeks after that meeting in the White House, he announced that James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, was going to join as an executive vice president.

What stands out in this, of course, is that James Biden has no background in construction, and in a bio the company released on him, all they noted was the fact that he was comfortable in the corridors of power and his brother was vice president of the United States. A few months after he joins the firm, lo and behold, this new company lands a contract to build 100,000 homes in Iraq from the federal government. They get a bunch of other contracts, as well.

In closing, the American Thinker had an important article about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to China. Author Andrea Widburg took a deep dive with ‘Forget the Hunter Biden sex tapes. The real news is much bigger than that’. Excerpts follow, emphases mine:

GTV, a Chinese dissident billionaire’s Taiwan-based media outlet, is releasing sordid, depressing videos and photographs of a person purported to be Hunter Biden … The big news is that the same outlet claims that (a) Communist China owns Joe Biden; (b) Joe Biden sold out CIA assets in China who were then executed or imprisoned; and (c) GTV has millions of images showing other presumably influential people in comprising positions. If all this is true, we may see a complete realignment in Western politics …

What’s more interesting than the images themselves is the story behind them and the allegations included with them. Taiwan-based GTV and GNews, which published the material, are owned by Guo Wengui, a dissent Chinese billionaire.

Guo was born in mainland China and gained his wealth doing construction work. Eventually, he ran into trouble, and the Chinese government accused him of corruption. (The reality, of course, is that anyone who has become wealthy in China was corrupt.)

Guo escaped with his wealth to America. He is a fervent enemy of the Chinese Communist Party and has made it his mission to bring it down. One of his friends is Steve Bannon, with whose help he founded GTV and GNews. In June, Bannon joined with Guo to declare a “New Federal State of China” they hope will overthrow China’s communist government.

When the New York Post, on October 14, published its first report about Hunter Biden’s hard drive, that wasn’t the first time Hunter’s computer made the news. According to the Daily Beast, on September 25, a Guo-affiliated YouTube station uploaded a Chinese-language video announcing that Guo and Bannon had sent “sent three hard disks of evidence” to both the Justice Department and Nancy Pelosi.

Three days later, Himalaya Global, a movement that Guo and Bannon started, published a tweet making the same announcement, only adding that the disks created a “big money and sex scandal.” Twitter has since suspended the account, but the Daily Beast captured the contents …

The tweet (shown in the article) announces a ‘bombshell’ involving three hard disks from Hunter Biden’s laptop revealing his connections to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and says they were sent to Nancy Pelosi and the US Department of Justice. The tweet was dated September 28.

The NYP articles began appearing after that.

Emphases in the original below, the ones in purple mine:

As if that’s not shocking enough, Guo’s outlets have made a few other staggering allegations. These allegations are scattered throughout the videos and summarized in this essay at GNews (emphas[e]s mine):

This video shows only the tip of the iceberg of what is important in the Chinese Communist Party’s Blue-Gold-Yellow (BGY) program. They take advantage of all those Western politicians, celebrities, and their families who are greedy for Chinese wealth, and threaten them by getting hold of and recording their sex and drug videos, forcing them to sell out their countries and people, and even their own national security in order to cooperate with the Chinese Communist Party’s world domination.

U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden is 100% controlled by the Chinese Communist Party as one of the most successful political instances of the BGY program. He is also a target of the CCP’s 3F plan, which aims to “fall, fail, and fell,” to weaken, destroy and kill America!

The Chinese Communist Party’s use of this tactic to threaten Biden and his sons and to bribe them with large amounts of wealth is one of the major causes of the disputes over the South China Sea, US-China trade, intellectual property rights, and energy prices, etc., as well as Biden’s provision of large numbers of CIA intelligence agents in China to the Chinese Communist Party.

The Chinese Communist Party has such a BGY program in the United States and in several Western countries in Europe. We will have millions of videos and photos of government officials, corrupt people, traitors, and criminals colluding with the Communist Party to dominate the world.

Again, merely because Guo’s outlets have been accurate about some things does not mean that the above allegations are true. However, the following three allegations, if true, are earth-shaking:

First: China has long owned Biden thanks to its having compromising information about his family (and possibly about him too).

Second: Biden identified CIA assets in China. The back story is that, between 2010 and 2012, China executed or imprisoned 18 to 20 assets who had bravely worked with the CIA, destroying a critical intelligence network.

Third: Guo’s outlets have “millions of videos and photos” of people who have worked with the Chinese against their own countries. If true, this implies that Guo managed to get into China’s “blackmail” database and can release that information.

I can’t believe this is actually happening in the United States — and involving a presidential candidate, no less.

The free world better hope that Biden does not win. If he does, we are doomed.
