Is Biden compromised by China? 

Is Biden compromised by China? 

Before getting into the President Biden China connection, we need to review the essential facts of the relationship between President Trump and Russia for the purpose of seeing the parallels – and the distinctions.

Trump and Russia

During President Trump’s administration, much was made of relationships between him, the Trump Organization and Russia – largely due to his past business interests and his inexplicable friendly words for Vladimir Putin.  Despite the absence of any evidence, Democrats and their media pals constantly ran stories speculating on an untoward relationship between Trump and Putin.  They accused Trump of being an asset for the Russian Federation.  There was constant speculation attempting to explain why Trump was not hard on Russia – even though he was much harder on Russia than had been President Obama.

To further their false narrative, Hillary Clinton’s campaign even funded a phony dossier supposedly revealing what Putin had on Trump.  That dossier kicked off a two-year investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  After spending more than $35 million dollars, interviewing thousands of witnesses and traveling all over the world, Mueller concluded that neither Trump nor the Trump campaign had criminally colluded with Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.  Total vindication.

Muller did note several instances where Trump MIGHT HAVE obstructed justice – essentially obstructing the Mueller investigation that found Trump innocent of criminal conspiracy.  Mueller was not convinced that Trump committed obstruction, or he would have said so.  Rather he left that decision up to his bosses in the Department of Justice.  They determined Trump had not.

Biden and China

Like Trump, the Biden family had a business relationship with China – but one that was much deeper and more profitable than Trump’s with Russia.  It was mostly through the President’s son, Hunter, and brother, James.  The multimillion-dollar deals did not pass the smell test.  There were huge sums or money paid to the Bidens for dubious work – other than to use their connection to reach then Vice President Biden.  They call it influence peddling.

In addition, Hunter and James are currently under investigation for potential multiple violations of the foreign agent laws.  Those require Americans representing or lobbying on behalf of a foreign government to register with the State Department.  Neither Hunter nor James did so.  Hunter is facing tax evasion charges.

The plot thickens after Biden left the Vice Presidency.  Was he the “big guy” referred to in various messages revealed on Hunter’s infamous laptop computer?  Was he getting 10 percent of the questionable deals?

It has been reported from tax filings and other information that Biden’s net worth rose from $3 million to the current level of $9 million since leaving the Vice Presidency.  We know that Hunter was helping the old man out by paying many of Joe’s monthly bills with money Hunter received from China (Russia and Ukraine).

Like Trump and Putin, Biden has not engaged in harsh criticism of China’s President Xi Jinping.  Even as China has become more hostile to the United States – and more threatening to Taiwan (with which America has a defense treaty).  Biden has not taken any significant action against China’s unfair trade policies … its theft of American intellectual property … its attempts to infiltrate the American banking system … its violating the sanctions placed on Russia by America and other nations over the Ukraine War.  There were no ramifications when China sided with Russia in the United Nations.

More recently, the Biden administration is working to pressure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from carrying through with her planned trip to Taiwan – after President Xi demanded the trip be cancelled.  Was Biden compromised into making that call, or was it just an example of his weak nature when it comes to foreign policy?

There is more than enough smoke to suspect a nefarious reason behind Biden’s softness toward China.  If the media were to apply a similar standard that they used with Trump, there would be speculation that perhaps China “has something on Biden.”  That speculation was heaped onto Trump – arguably with less evidence.  Remember, they had to create the phony dossier to make up for the absence of evidence.

I do not know the answer to Biden’s cozy relationship with China.  But it is safe to say that the left-leaning media is not applying the same standards of journalistic curiosity in the Biden case.  It can be said that the FBI is not exhibiting the same level of zeal in pursuing the information.  It may not be sufficient to reach any conclusions of criminality by the Biden family, there definitely is enough to open an investigation.  And it is curious why that is not happening.  Why it appears that the FBI and the media are not as interested in pursuing this case.

Things might be different if the Republicans take control of the House in the 2022 midterm elections – and the White House in 2024.  It would be both sad and ironic if two ex-presidents were to be pursued by criminal probes upon leaving office.  But that is a possibility.  We live in interesting times.

So, there ‘tis.

    • Burt

      The question is about Biden being compromised. Does a bear shit in the woods?

    • Christine

      Totally agree, Biden is compromised!! and should be impeached as a traitor!! and then hung and quartered for good measure!!

    As I’ve said many times, “THE U.S. MEDIA IS THE NUMBER ONE ENEMY OF AMERICA”.

    Come on man, I know it’s the midterms, and partisan hacks everywhere must toe the line, but you’re doing exactly what you accuse the mainstream media of doing, you’re giving Trump an easy ride.

    I’m not even gonna go into the Mueller report and your crockpot notion that it was totaled vindication when Mueller himself says Larry lies. And on the second impeachment, Trump as guilty as sin, and you guys let him off the hook again..

    You mention trumps Russia, you leave out the 100 meetings team Trump had with Russia before he was even elected. How about all the voting data the team Trump gave to Russia. How about the request for Russia to illegally release the Hillary emails. You leave out the Trump financing agreement with Deutsche bank, a prime money Launderer for Russia. Even high-ranking bank officials said the Trump loans look hinky and they would never ever approved them. And you leave out all the funny money that Trump makes from Russia like renting out of floor of Trump Tower to the Russian mafia, a.k.a. investment firm. Or the Trump flip of a mansion in Florida to the Russians making millions in profit.

    More importantly, when it comes to China, and or the rest of the world, you know the Trump family makes almost 50M every year from foreign sources. He never put his business into a blind trust and anyone who doesn’t think he wasn’t still running the business is nuts. You didn’t mention Ivanka’s 16 trademarks in China, do you think those were worthless? I am pretty sure that when you put up the P&L for trump versus Biden against China, that Trump wins hands-down.

    But you don’t even mention that the Trump family does business in China. A political hack job again. FYI: I would’ve sourced most of the facts above except Larry doesn’t like sources, he doesn’t need them, everyone knows with Larry knows. Makes one wonder why he writes.

    But I do agree: expose all Biden and Trump foreign dollars, take them to court for anything illegal, be sure to get Hunter penalized for not being a foreign agent, or paying taxes. No issues with that whatsoever. But don’t whitewash Trump. He’s wide enough

    • CHuck ELkins

      Thank you Frank for the only non-bullshit response. Do we even know what happened to the $$$ that the orange menace had/has in china? Of Course not because these clowns all are still crying about the “Steal”

      • Kyle

        Just don’t try to steal another election asshole

    • tom

      I agree Frank. Totally agree with your last paragraph! DOJ should prosecute both of them and any relatives involved. Unfortunately the DOJ has become very weaponized and politicized so I do not expect much to happen. I say throw all of the hooligans out!!!

    • Joe Gilbertson

      But we are not talking about Trump, are we?

      Biden is a lifetime politician, using his position as a government official to further his son’s business interests. This is very well documented, to the point where Hunter is using Air Force 2 to jet around the world.

      And apparently Joe is getting his cut too. From China. That might explain why China isn’t being tagged with the origin of Covid, and forced to pay reparations. It might explain why the trade pressure has come off of China during the Biden Administration. It might explain a whole lot more, too.

      Trump was a businessman before he was a politician. He did business with everyone. Business is legal in the U.S. Trump was voted into office with full public awareness of his business dealings. His potential conflicts of interest were sorted out ahead of time.

      Joe is a lifetime politician. He actions were not conflicts of interest, they were corruption.

      Let me know if I need to used simpler words.

      • Frank stetson

        Joe, yes, Trump and his family is a business before and after he gained the presidency, and that’s the problem. He never blind trusted the business like every other president in recent history. For example, you can’t tell me that Jared got billions from the Saudi prince to establish an investment firm when he had no experience whatsoever because of his good looks . You can’t tell me that if I got 13 trademarks in China because of her good looks. Perhaps it was family ties and expectations of future paybacks, or perhaps paybacks for things already done. Either way, it may be legal, but it sure was suspicious.

        No, Larry was not talking about Trump, and that’s the problem.

        In regards to your factual Hunter Biden, Air Force two, and money from China. This was a Trump claim during his run against Biden about a 2013 trip that Biden took to China, Hunter‘s daughter was invited, and Hunter went to chaperon. Yes, during the trip Hunter arranged for a photograph between a Chinese businessman, Hunter and I believe Joe. Trumpet claimed that Hunter made 1.5 million or billion off that businessman, but that was not true. And that was the total amount of investment fund, not an amount that was paid to Hunter. Matter fact, shortly after that Hunter was named to the board of the investment firm, as an advisor, totally unpaid until after his father left office. Suspicious maybe, but illegal not, at least based on the facts. If you have more, feel free to source, but this is what I can come up with at this point given your claims which I take it were the same as Trump’s and Giuliani’s. Both of which I’ve been fact checked to be seen as totally bogus.

        Again, I have no problems with investigating any illegal activities for either of these families. It would be nice to treat them equally in your stories.

        And your last paragraph was rude. I’m sure that was your intent. Certainly wasn’t funny. I would hope if you continue to toss your burgers at the wall, you would at least make sure they stick.

    Can you name any acts of weaponization or politicization under Garland?

    Or were you talking about bar?

    • Kyle

      No. He’s talking about Garland dumbass. Can you read?

      • Frank stetson

        Can you name any acts of weaponization or politicization by Garland?

        I just don’t know why you get so defensive, why you need to call names to feel better, he just can’t put any real facts on the table.

        • Ben

          He’s compensating for his many smallnesses in life.

    The previous administration is old news, it’s only purpose is to detract people from the real problems of 2021 and beyond, problems that are caused by having an inept, dysfunctional, irrational, dementia ridden, left wing, corrupt old man posing as a President. If the left wing media and the DOJ investigated the Biden’s with as much zeal as they display towards investigating Trump and his family, Biden would have been impeached the day after he took office and his sons would be in jail. It is obvious that the investigation into Hunter Biden, his foreign dealings and the kickbacks to then Vice President Biden were downplayed to influence his standings in the 2020 elections. Biden came into office solely as a left wing puppet used to undo all the good that Trump did for America and our economy only to replace it with chaos and weakness starting with Biden’s handling of immigrants invading this country and our crisis at the border, his disgraceful showing in Afghanistan, his fumbling efforts with COVID, our economy, and his kowtowing to China. Biden is a left wing lackey bent on the destruction of American democracy.
