Biden corruption

What’s not true?

Featured image When asked by an audacious foreign reporter about documented payments from a Chinese energy company that made their way to Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and “Biden,” President Biden responded: “That’s not true.” Asked to elaborate, White House press secretary KJP responded in three parts: (1) “lies,” (2) “Republicans,” and (3) “I’m not going to get into it from here.” Jonathan Turley reviews the history of Joe Biden’s response »

KJP on the Biden family business

Featured image House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer obtained a set of records documenting $1,00,000 in payments from a Chinese energy company that were distributed to members of the Biden family. Rep. Comer summarized his findings in a memo he posted online here. I noted the story in Hallie Biden in family business.” When a foreign reporter had the temerity to ask President Biden about it over the weekend, he commented: “That’s »

Comer in shadows

Featured image Reporters Jonathan Swan and Luke Broadwater profile House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer for readers who get their news from the New York Times. Comer’s investigation of the Biden family business is therefore belittled as a look into “sinister-sounding allegations against Mr. Biden and his family.” Were those “sinister-sounding allegations” formerly known as “Russian disinformation”? Maybe this is a step up. “Sinister-sounding allegations” must be something like George Smathers’s legendary »

Tony Bobulinski comments

Featured image With a single subpoena to Bank of America, House Oversight Committee James Comer has advanced the story of the Biden family business. Comer has posted a memo breaking down the apparent distribution of part of the suspect $3 million payment from a Chinese energy company among Biden family members and associates. I discussed the story and linked to Comer’s memo in “Hallie Biden in family business.” White House scandal attack »

Hallie Biden in family business

Featured image House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer teased earlier this week that he had discovered yet another Biden in the well-known family business. It apparently didn’t take much digging. Yesterday Rep. Comer revealed that Hallie Biden is the mysterious “new” Biden family member who got paid Chinese cash in 2017. The New York Post’s Steven Nelson reports the story courtesy of Comer here: “The records show Hallie Biden received $35,000 over »

Liar-in-Chief: ‘Republicans should pass my budget instead of calling [for] defunding the police’

Featured image Yes, he really said that. Speaking to a group of mass shooting survivors in Monterey Park, California, on Tuesday, President Joe Biden said, “Congressional Republicans should pass my budget instead of calling for cuts in these [mental health] services or defunding the police or abolishing the FBI, as we hear from our MAGA Republican friends.” Biden: "Congressional Republicans should pass my budget instead of calling [for] defunding the police." — »

Treasury Department Hands Over Biden Family ‘Suspicious Activity Reports’ to Congress

Featured image House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) announced on Tuesday that after two months of stonewalling, the Treasury Department has agreed to allow lawmakers to view approximately 150 suspicious activity reports related to “unusual foreign or high-dollar transactions” made by Hunter Biden, his uncle James Biden, and their associates. Comer issued the following statement: After two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access »

MS. found in National Archives

Featured image We learned this week that the National Archives has retrieved nine more boxes of official documents from the Boston office of President Biden’s lawyer. We have yet to learn whether any of the documents were classified. Former Trump adviser Stephen Miller has also succeeded in obtaining emails bearing on the Biden family business. The National Archives has posted records responding to Miller’s FOIA request via this site. I don’t find »

Dems Keep Pushing the Limits: ‘So, what are you going to do about it?’

Featured image Over two years ago, we watched a man who was clearly in the early stages of cognitive decline win the presidency. And, although his condition has deteriorated significantly since that time, the Democratic Party is prepared to let him run for reelection if he so chooses. Similarly, the people of Pennsylvania just elected the victim of a serious stroke, a man who struggles to understand spoken language and has difficulty »

China contributes, cont’d

Featured image Washington Free Beacon reporter Alana Goodman appeared for a three-minute segment on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show this past Wednesday evening. Her appearance followed up on reporting that we noted two weeks ago in “China contributes.” The Free Beacon posted a summary of Goodman’s reporting along with video of the segment (below). This remains something like a deep secret: The University of Delaware has received $6,704,250 in donations from China »

A Twitter Files footnote (11)

Featured image The current issue of Imprimis carries an adaptation of John Daniel Davidson’s February 7 Hillsdale College lecture on the Twitter Files. The title of the lecture is “The Twitter Files Reveal an Existential Threat.” Davidson begins with a point I have made several times in my own comments on the Twitter Files: Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter last October and the subsequent reporting on the Twitter Files by journalists Matt »

Brother’s reaper

Featured image I greatly respect the New York Post’s dedication to the exposure of the Biden family business. Today it comes in the form of a cover story with a classic tabloid cover. Inside the paper Emily Crane reports: “Biden’s brother was hired to broker secret $140M Saudi deal when Joe was veep, docs reveal.” Crane’s story draws on the reporting of Josh Boswell for the Daily Mail: “EXCLUSIVE: Jim Biden admitted »

Clapper’s claptrap, take 2

Featured image Yesterday I wrote about (former Director of National Intelligence James) “Clapper’s claptrap.” David Harsanyi took up the subject in the Federalist column “Clapper can’t stop lying.” Can’t Stop Won’t Stop! The Washington Free Beacon also took it up in editorial “Intel officials fresh laptop baloney.” The Free Beacon editorial gets at a few of the more peculiar angles to the story. It has several, to say the least. The editors »

Clapper’s claptrap

Featured image Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is one of the Deep State 51 who lent his credibility to the open letter to the castigation of the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop. According to Clapper et al., the emails reported by the Post “ha[ve] all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” Given to Natasha Bertrand, the letter was published by Politico in conjunction with the »

Dem litany of laptop lies

Featured image Miranda Devine characterizes the Dems’ performance in the House Oversight’s first committee hearing of the new Congress yesterday as “The Democratic litany of Hunter Biden’s laptop lies.” Having helped break the laptop story in the pages of the New York Post in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, Devine is the go-to source for comments on developments in the case. Here she is on yesterday’s hearing featuring the testimony »

China contributes

Featured image In an alternative universe where the bigfoot media reported the news, Alana Goodman’s findings would be a major story for reasons that require no explanation: “Foreign Nations Poured Millions Into University That Houses Biden Institute.” The university is of course the University of Delaware, about which no one beyond the borders of Delaware should bestir himself. Goodman reports: China, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Turkey have poured millions of dollars into »

For we can lie!

Featured image After the Chinse spy balloon was publicly exposed over Montana last week, we followed the evolving administration leaks to friendly media outlets. The leaks inadvertently portrayed the administration in a bad light and ultimately resulted in the decision to shoot the thing down after it had traversed the continental United States. All the while Joe Biden has appeared as a senescent blowhard, i.e., in a light that appears shockingly close »
