    100 Days Into Joe Biden's Presidency and Hunter Biden Still Owns Stake in Chinese Firm: Documents


    Hunter Biden still owns stake in a Chinese private equity firm part-owned by the communist regime’s state bank.
    Because of course, he does.
    The Daily Caller News Foundation broke the story this week that the younger Biden, whose sordid history would no doubt have ruined his father’s future political prospects if our nation could boast an honest media establishment, has yet to unload his shares in the firm that we were assured he would no longer own once his father President Joe Biden was in the White House.

    The outlet reported that “Hunter Biden holds a 10% equity stake in BHR Partners through his company, Skaneateles LLC, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China’s National Credit Information Publicity System.”
    However, in Iowa in 2019, now-President Biden vowed that “No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.”

    “Period. Period. End of story,” he added.
    It was not, it appears, the end of the story.

    Not only does Hunter still own stock in a Chinese company, but it’s also a Chinese company that’s part-owned by the Bank of China, the authoritarian regime’s state-run financial institution.
    “BHR is co-owned by the Chinese state-controlled Bank of China, the business records show, and manages the equivalent of $2.1 billion in assets, according to its website. Hunter Biden acquired his 10% stake in the firm with a $420,000 investment in October 2017, according to a statement released by his lawyer in October 2019,” the DCNF explained.

    Yeah, this looks pretty bad. But never fear — the White House was on the case, and when asked for a comment from Fox News pointed them helpfully to the fact that Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki pinky-swear promised us in February that Hunter is totally “working” on it, so don’t worry.
    “He has been working to unwind his investment, but I would certainly point you — he’s a private citizen,” Psaki said in February, according to Fox.
    “I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update.”

    That certainly answers the question as to whether the White House has taken the public stance that Hunter Biden totally shouldn’t own a stake in a Chinese Communist Party-linked firm and absolutely will unload it, but does little to assure us that Hunter Biden actually no longer owns this share.
    Because I mean, at issue here is the fact that he, uh, still…owns it.

    Now, this goes without saying, but we’ve got to stress it anyway: if President Donald Trump’s family had held stock in a firm part-owned by a communist authoritarian regime with whom his father was negotiating foreign policy, the relentless scrutiny into every corner of his administration would have been well warranted.
    As a candidate, Trump’s campaign was spied on by the FBI, as a president, the subject of a nearly two-year special counsel investigation, he was impeached — twice — and the Democrats floated removing him under the 25th Amendment more times than I care to remember.

    This was all unprecedented and shocking, but it was made all the more so by the fact that often it seemed, the whole time, his political enemies were chasing their own shadow at best — engaged in a historically corrupt coordinated political attack at worst.
    Aside from a meeting Donald Trump Jr. briefly attended during the 2016 campaign (that was more likely a set-up on the part of the Clinton campaign and the DNC than not) and a hypothetical Moscow Trump Tower that was never constructed, President Donald Trump’s family, despite the harsh light shone on them through the whole of the campaign and presidency, were never found to have committed any grievous impropriety.
    In fact, if you’ll recall the first time the Democrats impeached Trump (I know it feels like eons ago now, but it’s actually what everyone was paying attention to when the coronavirus began to spread around the globe) it had much to do with the Trump camp’s interest in finding out more about the notorious Hunter Biden and his business connections overseas.
    Of course, that’s not what they wanted us to focus on at the time, and it’s certainly not what they want us to focus on now.

    But now, without the big, loud orange scapegoat for all life’s ills in the way anymore, it is significantly more conspicuous that Hunter Biden and his business dealings still remain in the wake of his tumultuous departure from Washington, D.C.
    Of course, now that Hunter’s dad isn’t just the former Vice President … he’s the President of the United States and he vowed on the campaign trail that no one in his family would have any foreign business dealings overseas or take a position in his cabinet (as Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner had done.)
    Candidate Biden made his promise that his family would not be engaged in foreign business dealings, of course, because of Hunter’s history and his connection to it. This included highly suspect father-son official state trips to Beijing in Air Force Two that resulted in lucrative contracts for Hunter as well as the elder Biden’s bragging after he’d left the office of the Vice President about his having once gotten a Ukrainian prosecutor fired who just so happened to have been looking into the oil and gas company on which the inexperienced then-Second Son had sat on the board.
    Again, I know we’re all just broken records by now but it becomes no less significant to ponder as we have a brand new establishment presidency to compare our boisterous former POTUS — can you even imagine if this had been Don Jr. or Eric Trump?
    ... does talk or investigation into Hunter Biden even matter anymore? The election is over. This story is nothing more than a far right fishing expedition to try and defeat President Biden in the past election.

    Corruption with President Biden ... please name one.

    Corruption with the ex President ... where does one start? Expect serious legal indictments to be filed any day now against citizen Trump.

    Corruption with the Clintons ... other than impeachment, please describe any legal indictments or actual charges laid

    The Biden administration over the weekend announced that Vice President Kamala Harris will helm the National Space Council, just as her predecessor, former Vice President Mike Pence, did before her.

    "As I've said before: In America, when we shoot for the moon, we plant our flag on it. I am honored to lead our National Space Council," the vice president tweeted following the announcement.

    These old recycled criticisms of President Biden are (completely) accurate (and) convincing to the millions of people who watched <<---- An estimated 26.9 million people watched the president’s address with 3/4 of them being over the age of 55 (which shows he has almost NO APPEAL to younger voters), compared to nearly 48 Million viewers for Trump's 1st address to congress, and also received a worse approval rating (51% compared to Trump's 57%), also Trump's "least viewed speech" still saw 37 million viewers.

    WHERE ARE THOSE 81 MILLION VOTERS??? HAHAHA!!!
    There, fixed it for you!

    A national poll of America’s 18-to-29 year olds released today by the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School shows that despite the state of our politics, hope for America among young people is rising dramatically, especially among people of color. As more young Americans are likely to be politically engaged than they were a decade ago, they overwhelmingly approve of the job President Biden is doing, favor progressive policies, and have faith in their fellow Americans.

    | The Institute of Politics at Harvard University


    In the March 9-22 survey of 2,513 young Americans, the Harvard Youth Poll looked at views regarding the Biden administration’s first 100 days, the future of the Republican Party, mental health, and the impacts of social media.

    As millennials and Gen Z become the largest voting bloc, their values and participation provide hope for the future and also a sense of urgency that our country must address the pressing issues that concern them,”


    1. Despite the state of our politics, hope for America is rising (especially among people of color), and so is youth’s faith in their fellow Americans


    2. Young Americans are significantly more likely to be politically engaged than they were a decade ago; a sharp increase in progressive political values marked since 2016


    3. Fifty-nine percent (59%) of 18-to-29-year-old Americans approve of President Biden’s job performance overall; 65% approve of his handling of the coronavirus and 57% race relations


    4. Forty percent of young Americans expect their lives to be better as a result of the Biden administration; many more feel a part of Biden’s America than Trump’


    5. More than half of young Americans are going through an extended period of feeling “down, depressed or hopeless” in recent weeks; 28% have had thoughts that they would be better off dead, or of hurting themself in some way


    6. Nearly a third of young Americans say that politics has gotten in the way of a friendship; differences of opinion on race-related issues most likely to cause rifts


    7. With partisanship rising, three-quarters of American youth--including 85% of Biden voters and 73% of Trump voters--agree we need more “open-mindedness” in politics


    8. More than three-in-four young Americans have little trust in Facebook or Twitter to do the right thing; about half of young Americans believe the U.S. government should further regulate big tech


    9. Two-thirds of youth, but only 26% of young Republicans, believe that Joe Biden won the election fairly


    10. A plurality believe history will judge Trump as a “the worst president ever;” less than a quarter of young Americans want Trump to play a key role in the future of Republican politics; young Republicans are divided



    ... the Republican brand is dying off as the population ages. Young Americans reject the ex President in overwhelming numbers and are pleased with the work that President Biden has done to date

    3. Fifty-nine percent (59%) of 18-to-29-year-old Americans approve of President Biden’s job performance overall; 65% approve of his handling of the coronavirus and 57% race relations <--LOL.......wonder which liberal college they pulled these respondents from!?

    4. Forty percent of young Americans expect their lives to be better as a result of the Biden administration; many more feel a part of Biden’s America than Trump’ <--So it's safe to say that a majority of youth (60%) don't expect their lives to be better under biden! Thanks for clarifying!


    5. More than half of young Americans are going through an extended period of feeling “down, depressed or hopeless” in recent weeks; 28% have had thoughts that they would be better off dead, or of hurting themself in some way <--(Thanks to the Democrats.........can't forget that they are the cause for most of this misery!)


    6. Nearly a third of young Americans say that politics has gotten in the way of a friendship; differences of opinion on race-related issues most likely to cause rifts <--LOL! Go get the security blankets and find a safe space!! Thumb-suckers that can't accept a difference in opinion! LOL....snowflakes!


    7. With partisanship rising, three-quarters of American youth--including 85% of Biden voters and 73% of Trump voters--agree we need more “open-mindedness” in politics


    8. More than three-in-four young Americans have little trust in Facebook or Twitter to do the right thing; about half of young Americans believe the U.S. government should further regulate big tech <--The distrust in media and social media........Brought to you mostly by democrats! So, it's safe to assume that since democrats and the biden admin hold these companies to such a high regard, that youth in America don't trust the democrat party either.......you know that little thing about being complicit with the big tech companies!


    9. Two-thirds of youth, but only 26% of young Republicans, believe that Joe Biden won the election fairly


    10. A plurality believe history will judge Trump as a “the worst president ever;” less than a quarter of young Americans want Trump to play a key role in the future of Republican politics; young Republicans are divided

    Actually, you can count me as one of the 26.9 million that tuned in (i do my research of both sides)!! His Speech SUCKED BIG HAIRY BALLS!!

    Your "harvard poll" (which means nothing in these days based on how they choose their "respondents") has nothing to do with my statement that biden has NO APPEAL to younger Americans based on the viewership of his first speech! You just spouted off why "SOME youth" don't like Trump! LOL!

    All your little poll tells anyone is that youth hold on to "hope" like it's something tangible, dislike social media, get offended easily, are depressed, and have little aspiration to get involved in politics!
