Biden's crime family is all of DC
Just the News reported, “Devon Archer delivered bombshell testimony to Congress on Monday, telling lawmakers that Burisma Holdings pressured Hunter Biden in December 2015 to deal with a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the firm for corruption shortly before the then-vice president took steps to force the prosecutor's firing, according to lawmakers familiar with the transcribed interview.”
Joe Biden himself bragged five years ago about withholding aid to get the prosecutor fired. Here’s the video. Republicans did nothing about Biden admitting to doing what RINOs and other Democrats falsely accused Trump of doing. Nothing has come out of Biden storing classified secrets in his garage.
There is no way Joe will be impeached or Hunter will do any jail time because if they go down, all of Washington will go with them. Washington protects its own because they fear if one goes to jail, he will bring them all down.
Hillary said she would bring DC down with her. Guess what? She never was indicted even though she forwarded state secrets via email to foreign donors to her fake charity when she was secretary of state. Jim Comey, then FBI director, even admitted publicly that he had the evidence but would not recommend prosecution.
He said, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.”
Comey made it clear that the fix was in by warning others not to try the same thing. He said, “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.”
His FBI spied on political opponents to please Barack Hussein Obama.
When this became public knowledge, do you know what a Republican-controlled House and a Republican Senate did?
Nothing. They did nothing. No prosecutions were recommended. Paul Ryan likely laughed. He hates President Donald Trump with a passion because Trump is an existential threat to the Banana Republicans and their allies in the Democrat Party. Life is good in Washington. Everyone goes along to get along, and the pay is great.
Ryan entered the House a pauper. As he began his final term in 2017, his net worth was $7,307,041.
That did not even put him in the top 10% of congressional multimillionaires. He ranked 66th.
Congressional fortunes are made through book deals and stock purchases. Congressmen and senators are amazing lucky when it comes to timing stock purchases and dumping stocks. In fact there are ETFs (exchange-traded funds) that track congressional stock purchases and sales, which allows mere mortals to trade like a pro — the pros being Nancy Pelosi and Ted Cruz.
Insider reported in February, “On Tuesday, investment firm Subversive Capital Advisor and the data hub Unusual Whales launched two ETFs: the Unusual Whales Subversive Democratic ETF and Unusual Whales Subversive Republican ETF.
“The former trades under the ticker NANC, a nod to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, while the latter's ticker is KRUZ, presumably a reference to Sen. Ted Cruz. The ETFs investments are based on the disclosed activity of any serving lawmakers, as well as their families.
“The ETFs, which both come with a 0.75% management fee, are based on the premise that lawmakers benefit from insider knowledge provided by their positions, allowing them to achieve higher-than-average returns on their trades.”
Book deals were the base of the fortunes compiled by the House of Clinton and the House of Obama, our modern Borgias and Medicis. Justice Sonia Sotomayor and others on the Supreme Court also get million-dollar-plus book deals.
That makes sense because she had no political influence to offer. She just wrote books people wanted to read (boy howdy do they).
Which brings us to Biden who has been a fixture in DC for the past half-century. Everyone in DC knows he’s an idiot, knows he’s a fabulist, and knows he’s a crook. I say that under the Surber Stipulation that if I can see it all the way here in Poca, West Virginia, the people in DC see it and more.
I suspect that the 10% for the Big Guy that his children surrendered from their loot did not mean Biden but rather his boss, Obama. And I suspect that Obama spread the wealth around. If Red China and Corporate America can buy off politicians, why not the president of the United States?
Obama didn’t wrest the nomination in 2008 from Hillary because he was “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean,” as Joe Biden put it. No, no, no. Obama had Chicago money and the Cook County Democrat machine behind him.
In 2016, the money and the machine helped Hillary swipe the nomination from Bernie Sanders. And that same money and machine bought off Sanders and the rest of the pack to pave the way for Biden in 2020.
I am convinced that Ukraine is Chinese for money laundering. How else can you explain why a weird province of Russia (come on, Kyiv was once the capital of Russia) attracts so many American political consultants after our presidential elections end?
Politico reported a year after the 2008 election, “Obama consultants land abroad.”
The story began, “In Kiev and Kharkiv and other cities in Ukraine, American political consultants who worked against one another in Iowa and New Hampshire and then in the general election are facing off again in a somewhat surreal Eastern European replay of the 2008 campaign.
“The firm headed by Hillary Clinton’s former chief strategist, Mark Penn, is helping run incumbent President Victor Yushchenko’s campaign. Meanwhile Paul Manafort, whose firm worked on Republican John McCain’s losing effort, and Tad Devine, a top strategist on the Democrat presidential campaigns of Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004, are consulting for Victor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian frontrunner in the polls.
“For Penn, Manafort and Devine, foreign elections have been a lucrative source of business for years. But for the Chicago-based media consulting firm AKPD, the contract to help guide Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko’s campaign is part of a new, growth area of business that presented itself after the firm helped Barack Obama win the White House last fall.”
Land abroad? They should land in jail. Well, Manafort did but only because he backed Trump and no one in DC likes Trump because he threatened to end the political payoffs. With Trump gone, Republicans and Democrats voted to give Ukraine $100 billion rather than get Putin to stop his senseless war. No one wants Donbas — not even the Dumbassians.
Hunter’s criminal case offers a small hope that Biden won’t get away with it this time. Maybe Judge Maryellen Noreika will stick to her guns and not allow the Biden administration to give Hunter Biden a parking ticket instead of indicting him with 37 counts of accepting bribes, money laundering, tax evasion, and felonious ownership of a gun.
Elizabeth Stauffer wrote, “Biden never dreamed he would have to answer to the American people for any of his actions and that made him sloppy. He and his wayward son left behind a substantial trail of evidence. And the DOJ has been complicit in covering it up. That’s called obstruction.”
Hope is the thing with feathers. This situation looks featherless because it is up to a judge recommended by two Biden-approved Democrat senators and confirmed by a voice vote in the Senate.
But maybe this time the Washington Senators and Assorted Crooks will dispose of Biden like a Kleenex. They got what they wanted out of him: a war with its kickbacks. Maybe Archer’s testimony begins the process of making Kamala president.
