Hunter Biden’s Perfectly Legal, Socially
Acceptable Corruption

Original Article

Posted By: PageTurner, 10/1/2019 11:07:22 AM

How did this get to be standard practice? The whistle-blower scandal that has prompted the fourth presidential impeachment process in American history has put a spectacle from earlier this decade back on display: the jaw-smacking feast of scavengers who circled around Ukraine as Viktor Yanukovych, a Moscow-linked kleptocrat, was driven from power. Ukraine’s crisis was the latest to energize a club whose culture has come to be treated as normal—a culture in which top-tier lawyers, former U.S. public officials, and policy experts (and their progeny) cash in by trading on their connections and their access to insider policy information—usually by providing services to kleptocrats like Yanukovych.

Posted with permission of LComStaff, due to date. Good piece getting to the bottom line - the Bidens' stench of corruption. Ignore the obligatory snipes at Trump as this is a leftist publication. It still gives the whiff of what Biden is.

This article states the same lies that the media are trying to portray. Donald Trump never asked for a favor regarding Joe Biden but for Crowdstrike (?) and there is a big difference. So Sarah, stop with the white lies.

Scavengers.. now there is a apt description of the Democrats and Rino politicians. When it comes to pay offs, bribery, extortion the congressional gang can recognize a golden opportunity half a world away. Gird your loins Mr. President , if you make eight years in office around these thieves and backstabbers it will be a miracle from heaven.

Simply put, the Dems are well aware that Biden has no chance of winning the Presidency, and are more than willing to sacrifice him if it means there is even a remote chance of denying PDJT's re-election.

Here's where this falls apart. FTA "The problem was not that the prosecutor was too aggressive with corrupt businessman-politicians like Hunter Biden’s boss; it was that he was too lenient." So, we are to believe that Hunter Biden thought the prosecutor was too lenient in going after his own cozy arrangement. I think the author is counting on no one reading this too closely. Also, I think the opening shot at Trump was the price of admission to get this published.

Once again, the apologists in the media claim that the situation with Hunter Biden was equivalent to a bunch of other people that were entangled in Ukrainian business and oligarchs. This obscures the fact that only Hunter Biden had a father who was the primary official responsible for directing US tax dollars to Ukrainian government officials. Whatever Hunter may or may not have done or knew about Burisma is totally irrelevant to the acts of his father. The facts in this case are not in dispute. Joe Biden has publicly confessed to using his office to force the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the company that his son was a part of. This is the only fact that matters and is corroborated by multiple participants who filed their affidavits in Ukrainian courts. The obsession with the son is expected because most people respond to resentment and class envy stories rather than bald face abuse of office and obstruction of justice cases as confessed to by Joe Biden.

Most ordinary Americans neither admire or support people who engage in this sort of corruption. Tells us something about the type of crowd that Sarah runs in. Dispense with the "false equivalence" because President Trump did the same sort of thing? No, he did not do anything illegal. False equivalence is exactly what Sarah is trying to pull on us. These scavengers have been doing this sort of thing forever. What do you think Hitlery and Obama were doing in Libya, overthrowing Ghadaffi and then selling off his weapons to terrorists in Syria? This is one of Hitlery's specialities.

She actually claimed that Biden wanted the prosecutor fired not because he was too agressive, but because he was too lenient!! How stupid does she think we are? One would have to be very, very stupid to fall for that claim!

Remember when intelligence leaker Ed Snowden's gentlest critics said that he should have taken his complaints of intelligence abuses through established internal channels instead of steal thousands of documents of top secret intelligence files and then leak them to the press? That 'mistake' - and I don't think it was one -- is what drove him to seek refuge in the old Soviet Union just a few years ago?

Within hours of suffering chest pains Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders had stents inserted to relieve the blockage in an artery. He’s lucky. Because if Sanders lived under “Medicare for All,” things likely would not have gone as well. Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing “Medicare for All” and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures – infant mortality and longevity – are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons. Infant mortality rates depend on how countries measure them, and longevity has more to do with things like

Democrats have scheduled a forum on Thursday in Weston, a town that has seen an influx of Venezuelans fleeing their country during an economic collapse that began under former President Hugo Chávez and has continued under President Nicolás Maduro.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A group of San Francisco neighbors said they had to do something to make their street safe. Their answer? Some giant rocks. Fed up with what they see as the city’s failure to combat homelessness and rampant drug use, the neighbors had boulders delivered to their sidewalk to block people from pitching tents on their street. That started a fight that shows the frustration with an unprecedented homelessness crisis in California. Cities are struggling to address the lack of affordable housing and a growing number of homeless encampments that are popping up on city streets, sometimes in neighborhoods.

The content of the Ukraine phone call, as unseemly as it may be for President Donald Trump, will not be the basis of impeachment, the way Bill Clinton’s “perjurious, false and misleading testimony to the grand jury” was. Which is why House Democrats are utilizing it as pretext to fish the whole expanse of the vast waters of presidential diplomatic communications with foreign leaders. A few breaths after grousing that Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani “seems to think I’m judge and jury here,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, the California Democrat, almost comically delivered the verdict, telling ABC News on Sunday that “what we have seen already is damning” and falsely

Until the transcript of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky emerged on Wednesday, Democrats were in a mad fury with accusations that Trump had bribed a foreign government to investigate the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The claim, based on a whistleblower’s second-hand account, which none of them had seen, alleged that Trump withheld aid to Ukraine on the condition that it open an investigation on Biden. Circumstantially at least, there seemed to be some crumbs to back this up. Aside from the mysterious whistleblower claim, the administration had

It's not just San Francisco that has a poop problem. The verdant banks and peaceful beaches of the Russian River are left littered with human waste after busy weekends of visitors partying on the water, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. "You're talking about orders of magnitude of fecal matter beyond wild animals," said Don McEnhill, executive director of RussianRiverkeeper, an organization that seeks to preserve the Russian River's natural beauty. The Press Democrat reports most of the waste is found near Petrified Forest Road, Porter Creek Road and Geysers Road and Steelhead Beach — where there is a public restroom.

Seems the mainstream media are desperate to keep President Trump's stellar United Nations speech out of the news. On Tuesday, Trump delivered a far from throwaway speech articulating the vision of the voters who elected him, speaking of nationalism, globalism, and socialism, along with an added rundown of problem nations to condemn and props for others. RealClearPolitics has a video and transcript. For starters, it was a zero apologies for America speech, which was a breath of fresh air, given the previous administration.He drove a fine definition of nationalism in the American sense, not other countries, as a positive thing that benefits not just the U.S., but all nations.

"This has nothing to do with politics or partisanship.” That was how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it shortly before announcing the opening of an official impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump. Who is she trying to kid? Despite the breathless commentary about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president and a whistleblower report based on second-hand accounts of uncertain credibility, we know little about what transpired, much less whether it rises to the level of an impeachable offense. Democrats could have gone through the normal procedures to get the information from the White House rather than jump immediately to talk of impeachment.

If there's one thing Democrats have always wanted to get their hands on, it's workers' private retirement accounts -- the 401(k)s, the Roth IRAs, the Social Security checks. The idea of course, is that that big pot of stored savings can be spent now for leftist social programs instead of raising taxes and let what happens, happen, to people who've saved for retirement. We saw it in 2010, in the Democrats' effort to 'Argentinize' U.S. 401(k)s and replace them with a 'guaranteed retirement accounts,' using the private savings to bail out failing public pensions. It fell flat, but that didn't stop Democrats.

The Deep State spook filed a complaint on August 12 based on second-hand knowledge and hearsay of Trump’s July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, so Schiff had knowledge of the accusations and worked discreetly for up to two weeks.Schiff is now claiming he has never met with or spoken to the whistleblower — in fact, Schiff is claiming he doesn’t even know the identity of the whistleblower!

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense.

Naturally, she responds with vapid variations on a theme: Donald Trump is no good, he stole the election, the world is ending, I’m fine, thank you. Only she’s not fine, or she wouldn’t continue to embarrass herself by trying to rewrite history. She lost the election fair and square and even the “resistance” movement no longer pretends otherwise.
