There are government conspiracies and government secrets. Let us not be nieve, all governments will have necessary secrets. Information that should not be released to the general public due to national security issues. This is most definitely true as it pertains to military operations. The quintessential need to know basis. Sometimes we the people don’t need to know especially if it will put the soldiers in a more difficult situation. But, what if the secret is covering up a plot of a very nefarious nature? Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
A very interesting thing happened at the end of World War II. At this time in history, people all over the world for the first time we’re reporting seeing strange unidentified objects in the sky or UFO’s which are Unidentified Flying Objects. These objects were witnessed moving around in the sky at great speed. In 1947 the first UFO was spotted by a man named Kenneth A. Kenneth was documented stating that he saw, with his own eyes, 9 saucer-shaped objects flying at the rate of about 1700 kilometers per hour. A couple of committees were created with the intent to explain and demystify the events usually linking them to man-made error activity. Of course seeing events like this obviously sparked a lot of interest from scientists, military, government, law enforcement and the general public alike. An abundance of data concerning these UFO’s was collected at that time. This is when U.F.O’s became a public phenomenon.
The United States government and the media were definitely involved in putting out misleading information which contradicted the original stories given by eyewitnesses and therefore effectively convoluting the airways. This didn’t sit well with Serge Monast, a Canadian from Quebec born in 1945 who was an investigative journalist, essayist, poet, and conspiracy theorist. Serge gained a lot of popularity from quest appearing on shows that deal with the phenomenon of an esoteric nature.
In 1994, he published Project Blue Beam (NASA), in which he detailed a four-step base operation set up by the US government by way of NASA with the help of the United Nations. This operation or program was to implement a New Age religion with the Antichrist at its head who will publically ridicule and denounce all of the four major religions. This will help usher in the New World Order. In his publication, Serge mentions how these entities will further fool the people by projecting a technologically simulated Second Coming of Christ.
The four steps of Project Blue Beam starts with step number one where they will manufacture sophisticated top-secret weapons to cause earthquakes around the world in specific and strategic locations in order to unearth religious artifacts with the attempt to use them to disprove the religions’ effectiveness. This phase was said to have been in effect since 2012. In step two, Serge writes that they will use sophisticated technology to beam 3D holographic images of all of the prophets or heads of the four major religions: Jesus, Mohammed, Kristna and Budha. The images would be broadcast simultaneously in the sky around the world. They will then merge these images into one in order to make all people feel there God is speaking directly to them. Their sole intent is to use this tactic to usher in the antichrist and the end times.
In step three of Project Blue Beam, Serge writes that they will use invisible wave frequency technology via a telephonic platform to access people’s minds and implant thoughts in order to gain control of the mind and make people feel that they are in direct communication with their God. Step four is the final step in this project where they will use their sophisticated tech to put the thought in the individual’s minds that the rapture is coming and that they face an imminent alien invasion. Also, they will get a transmission into their minds that currently there are other planets being invaded and ravished. They will use a fake alien invasion to finalize the birth of there New World Religion, the antichrist’s arrival, and the New World Order.
Serge Monast mysteriously died in 1996 in his home from a heart attack the day after he was arrested and jailed. The authorities took custody of his children who he was having homeschooled at the time prior to his untimely death. Is there truth to this Project Blue Beam dilemma? Was Serge Monast’s untimely death a coincidence? I’m going to leave that up to you to decide. Stay safe.
As we recently reported, Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, walked back her announcement that the Justice Department inspector general’s report on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses would be released as early as Friday, October 18.
Bartiromo has now gone on record saying that the long anticipated IGs report will likely not be out until “the end of the month.”
However, those goalposts seem to be moving again. As Fox News is reporting, “As soon as Horowitz is done with his review of the FISA warrant application, the counterintelligence investigation, the Trump campaign, we’ll have a hearing in public with Horowitz and we’ll call a bunch of witnesses,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on Fox Business’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Last month, Horowitz submitted a draft of his report to Attorney General Bill Barr, who was reviewing the document — fueling the belief that the public release was coming soon.
But a Justice Department official told Fox News last week that the report is still in the declassification process — one of the final steps to be completed before the report is released to the public.
“The FBI and the DOJ are working together smoothly on the declassification process,” the official told Fox News.
President Trump — who has the authority to declassify and release as much of the report as he wants — has been hyping its forthcoming release. “The IG report is going to come out soon, and we’ll see what happens,” the president told reporters last week, adding he’s “waiting for the report like everybody else.”
“But I predict you will see things that you don’t even believe, the level of corruption — whether it’s [James] Comey; whether it’s [Peter] Strzok and his lover, [Lisa] Page; whether it’s so many other people — [Andrew] McCabe; whether it’s President Obama himself,” Trump charged.
Trump added, “Let’s see whether or not it’s President Obama. Let’s see whether or not they put that in.”
Horowitz announced the completion of his investigation one month ago. The inspector general gave a draft to the Justice Department and the FBI for a classification review, after which the final draft will be delivered to Congress.
Republicans assert that top Justice Department and FBI officials misled the FISA court by using an unverified dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele to obtain warrants to electronically monitor onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Democrats have dismissed the allegations of wrongdoing during the Trump-Russia investigation and are concerned that U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the early stages of the Russia investigation, being overseen by Attorney General William Barr, may be an effort to discredit the work of special counsel Robert Mueller.
On top of Trump Deranged Syndrome (TDS), for First Lady, New York Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is showing signs of Terminal Russian Universal Meddling Paranoia (TRUMP).
Do not misunderstand. I do believe that the Russians meddled in the 2016 General Election. In fact, I am quite sure that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been meddling in our domestic and foreign affairs before and since. I think that is also true of the Chinese, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Cubans – and even the Brits, the French the Germans and that guy in all-white in teeny-tiny Vatican City.
In fact, we meddle in other country’s elections. One need only recall how a bunch of President Obama’s political advisors traveled to Israel to try to defeat President Benjamin Netanyahu. We meddled in any number of South and Central American national elections. We meddled big time when we used the Army to remove and arrest Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega. He is still serving time in an American prison.
Though there is some equivalency, that is not to minimize the extensive and elaborate efforts undertaken by Putin to disrupt our political and social harmony. It is just that Hillary seems to have gone over the edge.
Granted, losing the presidency to Donald Trump had to be a YUGE blow to her ambitions and ego. I mean … on the morning of Election Day 2016, this lady was prepared to be giving a victory speech later in the day. Was to become the first female President in American History and the first First Lady to become President – the most powerful woman in the world. The emotional and mental shock of losing was commensurate with the perceived certainty of her victory. And she loses everything to … Donald Trump.
No doubt, every day of the Trump presidency must be an agonizing mental comparison of the “only if …” The bitterness and rage within her soul must be a consuming conflagration that intensifies rather than subsides.
As a result, the lady has gone bonkers. As a defense … an explanation … of her failure, she appears to have created her own internal reality. And when it rises to the surface like the hot magma of a volcano, it reveals her emotional state.
Since losing the election, Clinton has expressed several theories to explain her loss – and they all have to do with ignoring the facts and advancing her narrative-of-choice. Most have to do with the Russians. Though everyone concluded that the election was not stolen. There were no examples of wholesale flipping of votes by Russians hacking into the various voting systems.
It was also reported – and conveniently forgotten – that some of the Russian disinformation campaigns on social media was directed against Trump – and that much of it was designed to trigger social unrest along racial lines. But everyone from President Obama on down assured America that while there was Russian meddling it did not … repeat NOT … alter the outcome of the election. It was much later when Democrats and their media cronies spun the narrative in a much different direction.
In the spirit that she did not lose the election, but it was stolen, Clinton now believes that had it not been for Russian meddling, she would have won the election in the Electoral College – although there is no evidence to support that claim.
Suffering from “the phone doesn’t ring much anymore,” – not to mention all those big-dollar speaking engagements – Clinton is using her limited exposure to the national spotlight to advance increasingly bizarre and irrational theories and accusations.
It is difficult to image that Clinton could conceivably top her latest. In a recent podcast, the former First Lady alleged that Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is a “Russian asset.” Not just soft on Russia as a matter of policy, but as a witting operative of Vladimir Putin.
Clinton goes on to suggest that Gabbard will abandon her run for President in the Democratic primaries to become a third-party candidate for the sole purpose of siphoning off enough Democrat votes to get Trump re-elected. That is unless the 2016 Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, serves in that role AGAIN. Yes, again.
It seems Clinton believes Stein was part of the Russian meddling – a Putin asset – designed to take away votes from Democrats. Under that theory, you might also believe that Ralph Nader was Russia’s guy to take votes from Vice President Al Gore. And what international conspiracy empowered Ross Perot to damage the re-election effort of President George H. W. Bush?
Whatever her state of mind, Clinton’s public statements are increasingly sounding like a plot from a Russian novel. Her only chance of preserving a reputation of dignity may be to take a vow of silence.
So, there ‘tis.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recapped Wednesday’s tumultuous White House showdown with President Trump over Syria, saying she told him his troop pullout was a gift to Vladimir Putin, and questioned him about helping Saudi Arabia, before Trump had what she called “a meltdown.”
However, according to President Trump and others in the meeting, it was “Nervous Nancy” who had the “meltdown.” After Pelosi walked out on the meeting, the president took to Twitter, responding to the latest Democrat attacks questioning his mental health and saying that it was he who had the “meltdown.” Trump tweeted that either Pelosi has mental problems or she and other Democrats deliberately put their partisan interests above the interests of those of the country.
Pelosi reportedly stormed out of the meeting with top White House officials, citing disrespectful treatment by President Trump. Republican lawmakers who were at the meeting, however, have said Pelosi’s claims make no sense.
“Inside the meeting, what I listen to, the speaker referred to the President I thought was unbecoming. The only thing that happened in this meeting was the Democrat leadership got up and walked away. When there was a time of crisis, leaders should stay whether they like what is said or not and actually work to solve a problem.”
— Representative Kevin McCarthy ( R-Calif.)
Meanwhile, Democrats are increasingly focusing on the 2020 elections, while also continuing their push for presidential impeachment. Pelosi defended her party’s impeachment effort, saying it was about the rule of law, not electoral politics.
“I keep saying to people impeachment is about the truth and the Constitution of the United States. Any other issues that you have disapproving of the way the president has dealt with Syria, whatever the subject is, the reluctance and cowardice to do something about gun violence, the cruelty of not wanting to help our Dreamers and transgender people, the denial about the climate crisis we face, the list goes on,” she said. “That’s about the election. That has nothing to do with what is happening in terms of our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution.”
Trump has slammed the impeachment process as a witch hunt and scam by the Democrats, because they know they can’t beat him at the ballot box.
As reported by the Associated Press and other news outlets, Maryland Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, died Thursday of complications from longstanding health problems. He was 68 years old. Cummings was a sharecropper’s son who rose to become a civil rights champion and the powerful chairman of one of the U.S. House committees leading an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.
As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings often found himself at odds with President Trump. Cummings led investigations of the president’s governmental dealings, including probes in 2019 relating to Trump’s family members serving in the White House.
Cummings died at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate. As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, he was one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington, and he has played a key role in the House Democrats’ ongoing efforts to impeach Trump.
Tributes poured in Thursday from lawmakers and others in politics on both sides of the aisle.
“I was shocked and saddened to learn the news this morning of my dear friend’s passing,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a fellow Maryland Democrat, said in a statement. “Elijah Cummings was a man of principle, patriotism, and conviction, whose loss will be deeply felt throughout the State of Maryland and our country.”
At the White House, the flag was lowered to half-staff. Despite Cummings and Trump often tossing unkind words at one another, the president had nothing but praise for the deceased congressman.
“My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings,” Trump tweeted. “I got to see first-hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!”
Cummings Had “Longstanding” Health Issues
Cummings’ office said in a brief statement that he died “due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges.” Cummings had been in ill health the past few years, navigating the Capitol in a motorized cart and using a walker.
“He worked until his last breath because he believed our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity,” his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said Thursday.
Cummings did not return to work after an undisclosed medical procedure that he said would only keep him away for about a week. The New York Times reported that Cummings had heart surgery in 2017 and had a bacterial infection in his knee.
However, Cummings had not been seen the past few weeks at closed-door interviews, alongside House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel. Yet, every subpoena, document request or statement which was issued on impeachment of late was done in the name of all three committee chairs. New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney is next in seniority to take over the gavel of the committee.
The committee postponed a planned hearing Thursday.
Rudy Giuliani said that he was “disappointed” in former National Security Adviser John Bolton, after reports emerged that he had called Giuliani a “hand grenade” over his Ukraine investigations and that Bolton had told a top aide to alert a lawyer in the National Security Council over Giuliani’s apparent meddling in State affairs.
“I am disappointed in John,” Giuliani said in a statement to Fox News. “I’m not sure he realizes I received all this evidence as part of my representation of the president. It was all part of the evidence, and suppression of evidence, involving Ukrainian collusion and the origin of some of the false information against the president.”
The comments from the president’s personal attorney came after it emerged that Fiona Hill, a former senior director to Russian and Eurasian affairs, told lawmakers Monday that a meeting between Ukrainian and U.S. officials left her and Bolton so concerned that he told her to alert John Eisenberg, a lawyer at the NSC. According to the New York Times, Hill said Bolton told her to notify Eisenberg about the efforts by Giuliani, and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland to press Ukraine to investigate Democrats.
“I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton allegedly told Hill, according to the Times. Hill said Bolton had previously called Giuliani a “hand grenade who’s going to blow everyone up.”
The dramatic testimony demonstrated how Giuliani and others’ efforts to investigate activity in Ukraine — particularly that of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter– has split the White House.
House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry last month, alleging that Trump withheld crucial US military aid to Ukraine in an attempt to force the Ukrainians into investigating his political opponent — specifically Biden’s role in the firing of a top prosecutor who had been investigating a Ukrainian gas company, where Hunter Biden sat on the board.
Trump has denied any quid pro quo, and claims instead that he was only looking to crackdown on corruption. He has instead attempted to direct attention to Hunter Biden’s activities in both Ukraine and China.
As the impeachment inquiry has heated up, it has also brought more scrutiny to Giuliani’s role in spearheading a separate investigation into Ukraine. The New York Times reported Friday that prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether the former New York City mayor broke lobbying laws in his own dealings with Ukraine. On Monday, Reuters first reported that Giuliani’s firm had been paid $500,000 in 2018 by one of the two Ukrainian-American businessmen arrested last week on campaign finance charges.
Trump gave his backing to Giuliani on Saturday, tweeting that he was a “great guy and wonderful lawyer.”
“So now they are after the legendary “crime buster” and greatest Mayor in the history of NYC, Rudy Giuliani. He may seem a little rough around the edges sometimes, but he is also a great guy and wonderful lawyer,” he tweeted. “Such a one-sided Witch Hunt going on in USA. Deep State. Shameful!”
As the White House reels, and the press swarms like angry bees around the Impeachment Inquiry of President Donald Trump, many have forgotten that the draft report on potential abuse by FISA by IG Horowitz remains in review, and now set to be released by “the end of this week.”
Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo says the report by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to be published on Friday, October 18th, and she says her sources expect it to cover “more than just FISA abuse.”
Bartiromo tweeted this thing is “as thick as a phone book.”
As the Washington Examiner reports, “it has been exactly one month since Horowitz announced the completion of the investigation by his team, who pored over more than 1 million records and conducted 100-plus interviews. The inspector general gave a draft to the Justice Department and FBI for a classification review. Upon the completion of that process, the report will first be delivered to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, who has pledged to do a “deep dive” of his own into FISA that will run concurrently with U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the early stages of the Russia investigation. The South Carolina Republican said his “No. 1 goal” is to have as much of the report declassified as possible.”
Last week, U.S. District Judge John Bates praised IG Horowitz for what he said was a thorough job, and what he expects to be a “fair and accurate” report.
“I expect a very thorough report — a very fair report from Michael Horowitz. He’s a good inspector general. He’s careful,” Bates said. Bates added later that he expects the report to be “pretty lengthy.”
Bates’ assessment of Horowitz bolsters the watchdog’s credibility at a time when he will find himself yet again at the center of a political firestorm when the FISA report is released to the public next week, if Bartiromo’s sources are accurate.
Horowitz Has Already Taken Fire
Bates’ compliments of Horowitz ahead of the report’s release come as the IG’s integrity has already been called into question, most notably by someone mentioned in his probe — disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe was fired last year after a report from Horowitz found that he made unauthorized disclosures to the media and misled investigators. In a legal fight against the Justice Department over his ouster, McCabe’s lawyers slammed Horowitz’s report as being “deeply flawed.”
Horowitz has been talking with U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is handling any criminal referrals from the investigation. As to what exactly the report says, Bates could not guess. Despite the rumors of a coming bombshell that could hit Democrats hard, “I don’t have a prediction for whether he is going to find fault and mistakes or worse and at what levels. Because remember that the sign-offs on these applications in the Department of Justice and the FBI were pretty high levels,” he said.
Satunch Trump supporter, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., literally got the boot on Monday when he tried to sit in on the testimony of a Fiona Hill, former top National Security Council expert on Russia who was appearing on Capitol Hill as part of the House impeachment inquiry into the president.
Gaetz, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, attempted to attend the testimony of Hill, but was told that because he was not a member of the House Intelligence Committee that he had to leave. The House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees are conducting the impeachment inquiry into Trump.
A frustrated Gaetz aired his disappointment to reporters after being told he was not welcome to sit in on the hearing, venting his anger over what he says are “selective leaks” by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and questioning why he was not allowed to be present during Hill’s testimony. Gaetz added that the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., was involved in the impeachment inquiry.
“It’s not like I’m on agriculture,” Gaetz said. “What are the Democrats so afraid of?”
A visibly annoyed Gaetz followed his comments with a tweet calling the impeachment inquiry a kangaroo court and using one of Trump’s favorite nicknames for the intelligence committee chairman, “Shifty Schiff.”
“Judiciary Chairman [Jerry Nadler] claimed to have begun the impeachment inquiry weeks ago,” Gaetz tweeted. “Now, his own Judiciary members aren’t even allowed to participate in it. And yes – my constituents want me actively involved in stopping the #KangarooCourtCoup run by Shifty Schiff.”
Republicans Rally Around Trump
Other Republicans closely aligned with Trump continued on Monday to complain about Schiff and his handling of the impeachment inquiry – with Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, also lambasting the California Democrat for excluding some congressional Republicans from the testimonies and for leaking “cherry-picked” information from the closed-door hearings to the press.
“She was going to come voluntarily but he’s going to subpoena her I believe so he can ask certain questions and again keep those secret except for the certain things that he wants to leak, the cherry-picked information to the American people,” Jordan said of Schiff before Hill appeared on Capitol Hill to testify. “The tragedy here and the crime here is that the American people don’t get to see what’s going on in these sessions,” Jordan said.
Hill’s testimony comes ahead of a planned Thursday appearance by Gordon Sondland, Trump’s hand-picked Ambassador to the European Union, and follows the revelation of a cache of text messages from top envoys, which have provided a vivid account of their work acting as intermediaries around the time Trump urged Ukraine’s new president, Volodymr Zelenskiy, to start investigations into a company linked to the family of a chief Democratic presidential rival, Joe Biden.
One witness who may not be called before Congress is the still anonymous government whistleblower who touched off the impeachment inquiry. Top Democrats say testimony and evidence coming in from other witnesses, and even the president himself, are backing up the whistleblower’s account of what transpired during Trump’s July 25 phone call with Zelenskiy.
Schiff said Sunday, “We don’t need the whistleblower, who wasn’t on the call, to tell us what took place during the call. We have the best evidence of that.” He added it “may not be necessary” to reveal the whistleblower’s identity as the House gathers evidence.
“Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected,” Schiff said.
Despite the shocking news of a recent Fox News poll that found that now 51% of Americans are in favor of President Trump’s impeachment and removal from office, the majority of Republicans, still staunchly support the embattled president.
In reality, the Fox survey is not that different from other recent polls on the subject. But some media types like to say “even Fox” has found such-and-such, as if it’s a survey of the network’s viewers rather than its widely respected professional polling operation.
However, not surprisingly one of those who are displeased with the Fox poll, and their reporting of it, is Trump.
“From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll,” he tweeted. “Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days.” He went on to name some of his least favorite network figures–Andrew Napolitano, Shep Smith, Donna Brazile–but added, “Oh well, I’m President!”
But there’s the thing when you drill down on the poll, it reflects the same old partisan chasm that has defined Trump’s presidency since Inauguration Day.
According to the poll, 85% of Democrats support impeachment and removal; independents are split, with 39% in favor, and 36% not in favor. Most importantly, only 13% of Republicans back impeaching and expelling Trump from office.
Now, it may be noteworthy that more than one in 10 Republicans want Trump gone. But if you’re a Republican senator, and the country is almost evenly split on impeachment, and the vast majority of your party opposes it, you’re not exactly under withering pressure to abandon your president.
Another point to note, overall in the Fox poll, the president’s approval drifted down only a couple of points, to 43 percent. And perhaps, most telling, upon closer examination the Fox poll contains a silver lining for the president after all. While 69 percent of those surveyed find Trump’s dealings with Ukraine’s leader extremely, very or somewhat troubling, 62 percent say the same about his allegations against Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine and China.
The elitist liberal press predicates days of repetitious reporting on two assumptions – which they claim are facts. Assumptions are NOT facts.
First is the claim that President Trump wanted Ukrainian President to “make up dirt” on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter “for political purposes.” At best, that is one person’s theory – spin. It is not an established fact by the transcript of the conversation or any of the secondary commentary.
It is equally reasonable – and there is hard evident to support it – that President Trump was continuing the United States interest in ferreting out corruption in Ukraine and that the Biden issue was just one example. It is just as arguable that Biden was mentioned because it was the most prominent example in which there was legitimate suspicion.
Biden, the Democrats and their media allies say that the Bidens have been investigated and totally exonerated. There is no there there. That is simply untrue – nothing more than a partisan narrative. Several publications usually friendly to Democrats raised questions and suspicions of Hunter’s seemingly lucrative business deals based on nothing more than his father’s power and influence.
The case-in-point was the fact that young Biden was provided a $60,000 PER MONTH part-time long-distance position on the board of Bursima, a major oil company in Ukraine, despite that fact that Hunter is without any obvious experience in the energy business, was not associated with Ukraine previously and had a personal work history that would question his ability to attain any high-level job anywhere in the world on his own.
To make matters worse, the company that “hires” Hunter is deeply involved in the corruptive environment of Ukraine and headed by an oligarch often cited as one of the corruptors. This was before the reform candidate, Volodymyr Zelensky, was elected President.
As Vice President of the United States, daddy Biden travels to Ukraine to say that the United States will withhold American funds much needed by Ukraine in their fight against Russia unless the lead prosecutor is replaced. He wanted a favor – a quid pro quo – from the widely recognized corrupt leadership in Kyiv. (Hmmm. Does that sound like what they accuse Trump of doing?)
Some say the dismissed prosecutor was investigating Bursima and some say he was one of the corrupt officials. That is irrelevant because his successor did not investigate Bursima and the Biden connection. That was simply a declaration from Biden’s new hand-picked prosecutor. Well, duh!
When Biden & Company say that Hunter did nothing wrong, that is because there was no real investigation. If the FBI had not looked into Al Capone’s tax evasion, old Scarface could also have claimed to have “done nothing wrong.”
Of course, “doing nothing wrong” and “doing nothing illegal” are also two different things – as we see in so many of the accusations against Trump. Most of the accusations against Trump deal with alleged improprieties that would unlikely hold up in a court-of-law – even though Democrats and the media claim they would.
The concern over Hunter’s Ukraine dealings gains a degree of legitimacy when he traveled on Air Force Two to China with his dad and comes home with a billion-dollar deal for his consulting business – in which the son of former Secretary of State John Kerry is Hunter’s partner. Small world.
It is clear that as Vice President, Joe Biden did help his son get access to extraordinarily lucrative deals with nations that had – at the time – a troubling relationship with the United States. The extraordinary amounts of money involved seem to far exceed the professional capabilities of the recipients – and even of far more knowledgeable and capable professionals.
There is enough there there to warrant a serious investigation of Hunter Biden. What service did he provide to the corrupt oligarch and his company? What does he know about the alleged corrupt activities of the aforementioned? What would legitimately cause any business to hire Hunter at such an extraordinary pay grade? No matter how you wish to interpret Trump’s motivation in pursing an investigation of the Biden boys, it is still very worthy of a full and thorough investigation.
So, there ‘tis.
