Hunter Biden is stepping down from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company and promising to forego all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, is elected president in 2020. After months of keeping a relatively low-profile as President Donald Trump leveled a barrage of unsubstantiated accusations of corruption at him, the younger Biden is publicly vowing to avoid any conflict of interest.

First of all, at 50 grand a month from the Ukrainians, and a management fee for placing 1.3 billion from the Chinese, he’s made his money, so what’s the difference? Second, if he hasn’t done anything wrong why step down? The Democrats just must think we’re all stupid.

Bloomberg is doing everything it can in this screed to show the crooked Bidens aren't crooked. Was this written by a so-called 'journalist' or a Biden defense lawyer? Nope, no bias in the 'media.'

This is rich. Poor Hunter had to resign from the Chinese boards because he was ATTACKED BY TRUMP, who never even brought this up until the Left tried to use Joe Biden's Ukraine corruption as a way to impeach Trump. No, he didn't resign because it was a massive conflict of interest for Daddy Biden, or that there was corruption going on.

Notice he only pledges to forego "all foreign work." That's because he knows there are plenty of U.S. companies to shake down for board seats, "consulting" contracts, and lobbying gigs.

Trump cleaning the swamp: Biden finished, Hunter done, Shep Smith gone. The swamp has thrown everything trying to bring Trump down. Lies, fabricated charges, false witnesses. The left has bugged his every conversation, attacked his children and businesses. And yet, the only ones going down have been the swamp creatures.

This looks more like his Chinese bosses realizing that his father is toast and will never be elected and Hunter is no longer of any use to them. The value of his name recognition with US business has gone down quite a bit in the last week or so.

The Democrats and their media allies are doing everything they think they can get away with, including trying to impeach President Trump, to shield Joe Biden’s massive conflict of interest under federal ethnics rules when he was Obama’s Vice-President, and Obama’s point man for US Government relations in China and Ukraine, that involves institutionalized nepotistic corruption in those countries, that has allowed Biden’s relatives along with some other families of DC UniParty Members to get rich through bribe related and otherwise sketchy deals with foreign entities, and in the case of China with the Chinese Government that is the real owner of all Chinese Corporations in China. It should be very disturbing to Americans that over the years the DC UniParty has passed complicated laws, and government regulations, that are now being shown to protect and shield UniParty Members from being competently investigated for such wrongdoing as institutionalized nepotistic corruption. As it stands now it appears that anyone who dares to highlight instances of such corruption could well end up being indicted themselves under one or more of those complicated laws because of the double standard that causes Republicans to be indicted and criminally prosecuted for violating the same provision of laws, that if it involved Democrats would be considered to be a civil matter resolved by the payment of a fine.

Does anybody think Hunter, Chels, and the Jebster are the only ones making a fortune on boards because of their name? Sickening. See why someone is okay with raking in millions to get a job in Washington paying less than the CEO of a corporation? Even losing is lucrative.

Ryan, who joined the Fox Corporation board in March, is now reportedly one of the most important voices pushing Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch to transition Fox New and pivot away from Trump, according to Vanity Fair.

Earlier this month, during a bipartisan meeting in Kiev, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) delivered a pointed message to Ukraine’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky. While choosing his words carefully, Murphy made clear — by his own account — that Ukraine currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its U.S. aid but that could be jeopardized if the new president acquiesced to requests by President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans, including former Vice President Joe Biden’s family.

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date. Facebook says Penzeys spent nearly $96,000 on ads supporting impeachment between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10. The Wisconsin State Journal reports Tuesday that one post generated 257,000 reactions, 55,000 comments and 45,000 shares. House Democrats are pursuing an impeachment inquiry to investigate Trump's suggestion that Ukraine investigate the business dealings of Joe Biden's

Tucker Carlson announced that former Fox News and NBC news anchor Megyn Kelly will appear on his program Wednesday for her first TV interview since being fired at NBC one year ago. Kelly’s sudden departure from NBC resulted from comments she made on the “Today” show in which she questioned and defended dressing in blackface for a Halloween costume. She said it was “okay when I was a kid” and did not understand how dressing in blackface could now be considered racist. A social media firestorm ensued and NBC quickly parted ways with the conservative news personality.

Republican lawmakers have built up expectations that the report will be a damning portrayal of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, including former Trump aide Carter Page. FBI officials relied on the controversial Steele dossier to obtain four Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to monitor Page’s phone calls and emails

During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.” CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles. O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same way we enforce any provision

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being politically smart by holding off on a formal Trump impeachment vote on the chamber floor, according to Brit Hume. (Snip) A full vote, the Fox News senior political analyst said, would expose vulnerable Democratic lawmakers--especially those in districts won by President Trump in 2016--to a vote that could hurt them politically. This way, she gets to get all the fruits of this peculiar investigation that she announced going on, and none of the downsides," he said.

Three employees at a North Carolina assisted living facility are accused of allowing elderly residents to fight one another, encouraging them to fight, and, in one case, assaulting a resident. Marilyn Latish McKey, 32; Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 20; and Taneshia Deshawn Jordan, 26, have been arrested and charged, according to a police report. A report of elder abuse made to Winston-Salem police in June accused employees of allowing residents to fight one another, the police report said. Police and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services then learned that employees were also encouraging the fighting. One employee, police say, physically shoved a resident.

Democrats have made girls’ sports a 2020 campaign issue, but establishment media outlets are keeping their viewers and readers in the dark. Every Democratic frontrunner has pledged their support of the Equality Act, which would make “gender identity” a protected characteristic under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls. Every Democratic frontrunner for president has pledged their support for the bill, which passed the House in May with unanimous Democratic support.
