Interior Department Blocks Minnesota Twin Metals Mining Project In Big Win For Beijing

Interior Department Blocks Minnesota Twin Metals Mining Project In Big Win For Beijing

The Biden administration blocked plans for a major nickel and cobalt mine in northern Minnesota Thursday while the U.S. remains reliant on overseas supply chains for its critical minerals.

The “Twin Metals Project” would have tapped the Duluth Complex within the Superior National Forest, where 95 percent of the nation’s nickel reserves and 88 percent of American cobalt reserves remain underground.

Now, pending litigation over leases, the Department of the Interior has blocked the nearly $3 billion mine over concerns about the safety of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness inside the national forest.

“The Department of the Interior takes seriously our obligations to steward public lands and waters on behalf of all Americans,” Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said in a press release. “Protecting a place like Boundary Waters is key to supporting the health of the watershed and its surrounding wildlife, upholding our Tribal trust and treaty responsibilities, and boosting the local recreation economy.”

The department withdrew more than 225,000 acres of the Superior National Forest from consideration for mining operations, ensuring the Twin Metals project’s demise for the foreseeable future.

The agency’s decision to block the project, however, is a major step back for American mineral independence while the government’s mining regime remains so broken that the administration is shopping in Canada for natural resources.

Debra Struhsacker, a hardrock mining and environmental policy expert who has testified before Congress five times, told The Federalist the administration’s refusal to allow the Twin Metals project to move forward is premature.

“It is truly unfortunate that at a time when there is widespread recognition that the U.S. urgently needs the copper, nickel, and cobalt in the Twin Metals mineral deposit to help achieve the nation’s clean energy objectives, that this world-class deposit is now off-limits for at least two decades,” Struhsacker said. “The public’s interest would have been better served if the administration had performed a rigorous environmental analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act to examine the specifics of Twin Metal’s proposed mining project and determine whether the deposit could have been developed in a way that would have ensured environmental protection of the Boundary Waters Area Watershed.”

Meanwhile, a report from the left-leaning Brookings Institute published last fall warned about the severe vulnerability presented in mineral supply chains by an overreliance on overseas adversaries. Even as leftist lawmakers want to ramp up the use of emissions-free energy technologies that require critical minerals, the Biden administration has slow-walked efforts to reform the U.S. regulatory regime over mining.

Beijing stands to benefit the most from Washington’s neglect.

According to Brookings, nearly 70 percent of the world’s cobalt comes from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where workers often operate in sub-human conditions complete with child labor. The Chinese have out-invested every global competitor in the Congolese mines.

More than 30 percent of the world’s nickel comes from Indonesia, where the Chinese are also investing heavily to cement a sphere of communist influence. The East Asian island country has also struggled to mine sustainably.

Republican Rep. Pete Stauber, who represents the district in northern Minnesota where the White House has doomed the Twin Metals Project, called the administration’s ruling “an attack on our way of life.”

“Unfortunately, this harm to our country and our future has become the norm, as this President’s goal is to put America last,” Stauber said in a press release. “Not even one month ago, Joe Biden signed an agreement to fund mining projects in Chinese-owned mines in the Congo, where over 40,000 children work as slaves in forced labor and inhumane conditions with no environmental protections.”

Last week, Politico highlighted President Biden’s African pivot to counter Chinese dominance on the continent’s lucrative mines.

“In a memorandum of understanding Wednesday, the State Department pledged to help build an EV battery supply chain in Congo and Zambia,” E&E News reported. “The department and other U.S. agencies will offer technical assistance to the two countries, cooperate on feasibility studies and explore opportunities in the sector for U.S. companies, according to the [memorandum].”

Last year, House Republicans launched an investigation into Hunter Biden’s involvement with the sale of a Congolese cobalt mine to a Chinese company in 2016.

Meanwhile, President Biden’s Department of the Interior has stonewalled efforts at effective oversight of the agency’s decisions surrounding the Twin Metals project.

In May last year, the department demanded thousands of dollars to release records on an earlier decision to cancel leases.

Peter McGinnis, a spokesman for the Functional Government Initiative (FGI), which filed the request for documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), told The Federalist Thursday the department eventually waived the fee but has yet to comply with the public transparency law.

“On the one hand, the Biden administration is advocating for a clean-energy transition and claims it is fixing the supply chain crisis,” McGinnis said. “On the other, it is cutting off access to domestic supplies of the raw materials needed to make that transition happen and leaving us more dependent on China for these critical minerals.”

Joe Biden Nailed Discussing Hunter Biden Business Deal to Sell Natural Gas to China



Joe Biden Nailed Discussing Hunter Biden Business Deal to Sell Natural Gas to China

New Email found on Hunter Biden’s laptop

BECKER NEWS

Joe Biden’s presidency is in a downward spiral. His administration is a complete disaster. His classified documents scandal has top Democrats abandoning him. And one top Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin, is even suggesting he may challenge Biden for the presidential nomination in 2024.

But amidst this chaos at the White House, which is seeing the departure of Biden’s loyal Chief of Staff Ron Klain, there is more bad news. A newly featured email from Hunter Biden’s laptop shows that Joe Biden had discussed a business deal with his son, after all.

Joe Biden was named in an email found on Hunter Biden’s laptop discussing a 25 million-ton gas deal with China, the Daily Mail reported in an exclusive.

The British publication reported that in October 2017, Hunter and his uncle Jim Biden were brokering a multi-million dollar deal to supply gas from Louisiana to the nation on behalf of Chinese energy giant CEFC.

It was in the interim period between the end of Biden’s presidency and his announcement that he was running for the presidency in 2020.

The report names a Louisiana-based lawyer involved in the deal. Bob Fenet wrote in an October 27, 2017 email that he had arranged “a call from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden on Monday morning to discuss the purchase of the 5 million tons of gas.”

Fenet wrote in the October 27, 2017 email that he had arranged “a call from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden on Monday morning to discuss the purchase of the 5 million tons of gas.”

The Daily Mail report suggests that it is possible that Fenet meant “Jim” Biden, and not “Joe” Biden, the White House did not respond to DailyMail’s requests for comment.

There is more evidence that Joe Biden was considered part of the “family” that was involved in the project.

“We Biden’s often fraught with problems, that they can can [sic] come from working with family members, are of a different mind. It’s all about family, and people we choose to do business with,” he wrote to Fenet on October 19.

The report notes that Biden would go on to hire former Cherniere board member Heather Zichal as his campaign climate adviser in 2020. He had hired former Cheniere lobbyist and vice president Ankit Desai as his political director in 2005. So Joe Biden certainly had ties to the Cheniere gas company.

Fenet detailed the potential gas deal with the Chinese in a subsequent email.

‘The Ashton Fenet and Sons Construction Company, Inc. will, in a joint venture with a Louisiana company, provide a 25 year natural gas-LNG supply to your group,” he wrote.

‘”We can begin supplying LNG in 2018 at the rate of three, four, five, or six million metric tons of LNG on a five year basis. From year five until year twenty-five, we will have the capacity to supply 13 million metric tons per annum of LNG to the Port in China. (To Be Decided),” he continued.

“If your client will purchase a twenty-five year stream of LNG, I can build the plant for $12 billion dollars,” he added.

The following month Hunter wrote a letter addressed to CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming, saying the deal would provide “large quantities of LNG at very competitive rates while also advancing the long term goals of CEFC through a partnership or acquisition of a promising LNG terminal project in Louisiana.”

Hunter Biden added that he was “making inquiries regarding arranging a meeting for you with the Chairman of Cheniere.”

​​Cherniere would go on to sign a long-term deal with a different Chinese energy firm, China National Petroleum Corp, which took place under then-president Donald Trump.

Hunter and Jim’s venture with CEFC eventually collapsed, the report notes, after Ye and his right hand man Patrick Ho were arrested for bribery and corruption offenses….

But that came after the Chinese had poured at least $10 million into their joint venture with the Bidens.

Penn Biden Cntr Dir Was Ukraine Expert Who Knew Inside Dirt on Joe & Hunter Biden

Penn Biden Cntr Dir Was Ukraine Expert Who Knew Inside Dirt on Joe & Hunter Biden


Penn Biden Cntr Dir Was Ukraine Expert Who Knew Inside Dirt on Joe & Hunter Biden

BECKER NEWS

The Managing Director of the Penn Biden Center, a Biden adviser named Michael Carpenter, now finds himself embroiled in a national controversy that threatens to take down a president. But it isn’t his first time.

Carpenter is implicated in the high-profile scandal since classified documents from Biden’s vice presidency were stored at the Penn Biden Center on his watch. The scandal has led to the quick appointment of a Special Counsel by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

It turns out, Carpenter was also deeply enmeshed in the Trump impeachment hoax. But first, let us review how Michael Carpenter’s name has again become relevant.

The Penn Biden Center, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, had quietly developed into one of the most influential foreign policy incubators in the United States. But its days of relative obscurity have now turned to ignominy.

The Biden classified documents scandal broke shortly after the midterm elections. Earlier in January, it became public knowledge that Joe Biden’s lawyers had “discovered” stashes of classified documents that were taken at the end of Biden’s vice presidency.

As reported by National Public Radio, Biden said the documents were “found in a box in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center office in Washington, D.C.. They were turned over to the National Archives as soon as they were discovered by his personal attorneys on November 2, before the midterm elections.”

How and why those classified documents came to be at the Penn Biden Center, an unsecured non-governmental organization, as well as the political timing of their discovery has become a matter of public debate. The documents were reported in January to have been found on November 2 — only days before the midterm elections.

Adding to the oddity of the reports, the Department of Justice directed the Federal Bureau of Investigation not to bother supervising the classified documents being turned over to the authorities. Contrast this exceedingly “polite” treatment with that given to former President Donald Trump, whose Mar-a-Lago home was raided by FBI agents in a style reminiscent of banana-republics, complete with the seizure of numerous documents, including the president’s passports. There is even word the FBI agents ransacked Melania Trump’s underwear drawer.

The Penn Biden Center was opened in 2018, and drawing from the Hunter Biden laptop emails, it was envisaged as operating in a manner similar to the Clinton Global Initiative. It subsequently began raking in tens of millions of dollars in foreign cash; particularly, Chinese cash. There are “dark money” contributions of $250,000 and up.

Penn took in roughly $77 million in gifts and contracts from China between 2014 and 2020, The Daily Pennsylvanian previously reported. Absurdly, Joe Biden and Dr. Michael Carpenter, who would later run the Biden center, would co-author an op-ed warning about foreign “dark money” in 2018. That certainly takes nerve.

But just as notable as the shady operations of the Penn Biden Center is that it employed a trio of foreign policy heavy-hitters as its managing directors.

The Penn Biden Center’s first managing director was none other than current Secretary of State Antony Blinken. He was succeeded in this role by White House counselor Steven Richetti. After him followed a managing director who gained prominence during the first Trump impeachment hearings: The above-mentioned Michael Carpenter.

It is to Carpenter that we now turn. He is a former Director of the National Security Council, and is currently the U.S. representative to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Although he got in at the ground floor as a Senior Director in 2018, he became the Managing Director of the Penn Biden Center in 2019. He was confirmed as the U.S representative in November 2021.

Dr. Carpenter, readers might remember, was flanked to Biden’s right at the Council of Foreign Relations panel in 2018 where Biden infamously announced that he threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine if it did not fire the prosecutor charged with investigating the Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

Burisma, of course, just so happened to be employing his son Hunter Biden on its Board of Directors for the hefty stipend of over $80,000 a month. Of course, we are to dismiss the obvious ‘quid pro quo’ implicated in the former vice president’s demands.

Such a ‘quid pro quo’ is a normal part of diplomacy (“sticks and carrots”), but it would become a scare word during the Trump impeachment hoax. If you recall, a “whistleblower” named Eric Ciaramella had relayed second-hand information that Trump was attaching aid to Ukraine to assurances from then-president Volodymyr Zelensky that Biden’s demand for the prosecutor be fired get properly investigated.

That was it. The Democrats, desperate to wound and potentially rid the U.S. government of their nemesis Donald Trump, nonetheless launched theatrical impeachment hearings over the matter.

The unnamed star at the center of the impeachment theater was the “whistleblower,” believed by investigators to be pictured with Dr. Michael Carpenter below.

Carpenter, interestingly, is a Biden adviser with expertise on Russia and Ukraine, as well as on weapons trafficking, according to his bio at the Atlantic Council.

It is unknown what is in the classified documents discovered at the Penn Biden Center and at Joe Biden’s Wilmington Delaware home. However, CNN has reported that the classified documents involved Ukraine.

“Among the classified documents from Joe Biden’s time as vice president discovered in a private office last fall are US intelligence memos and briefing materials that covered topics including Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom,” a source told CNN.

“A total of 10 documents with classification markings were found last year in Biden’s private academic office and they were dated between 2013 and 2016,” the report added.

Joe Biden in 2016 had pressured the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma’s leadership for corruption.

A series of documents from the Obama-Biden administration showed that representatives for Burisma Holdings sought a meeting with the State Department in February 2016 to discuss the corruption allegations.

Burisma’s representatives invoked the former vice president’s youngest son, Hunter, in order to try to get a meeting with the State Department. The FOIA documents obtained in a lawsuit by John Solomon did not indicate if the meeting ever took place.

On one of the last days of his term as vice president, Joe Biden traveled to Kyiv. FOIA documents hosted at the U.S. State Department show one possible explanation why.

Viktor Nebozhenko, a political scientist, was cited in an email from then Foreign Service Institute director Karen Robblee to former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch speculating on the timing of Biden’s visit and what it could possibly mean.

“Donald Trump said that he will carry out an audit of investments in security and democracy in Ukraine,” Nebozhenko said. “For 8 years the US Administration has turned a blind eye to our corruption and gave a lot of money through the IMF and various funds. And all this has disappeared somewhere. Trump, as the new director of the company under the name of the United States, wants to know where that money went.”

Donald Trump thinks he knows exactly what is in Biden’s classified documents stash and that it was covered up long before the midterm elections.

“I think they knew long before November 2,” Trump told John Solomon on his podcast from January 11.

Trump added, “I think he knew probably right from the beginning and I think a lot of it had to do with Ukraine, because that was the papers he kept. And no, I think they knew about this for a long time and they didn’t do anything about it.”

When asked how documents from Biden’s vice presidency might “change the equation” in regards to Special Counsel Jack Smith’s probe into the Mar-a-Lago documents, Trump said, “Well, I think it totally changes that.”

“I was perfect under the Presidential Records Act,” Trump added. “I did absolutely nothing wrong.”

The FBI agents had seized over 11,000 documents and photographs without classified markings from Trump’s resort, along with about 100 documents marked ‘classified’ or ‘top secret.’ Trump has argued that he declassified these materials when he left office.

Trump argued that the FBI should raid Biden’s properties, as well as those belonging to his son Hunter Biden.

“What about all of these places that he’s got?” Trump asked. “What about his house? What about Hunter’s house? You know, who’s going to go in there like they did with me? Who’s gonna do that?”

Morris: FBI Director Wray Hints at ‘Collaboration’ with Private Sector Amid Political Scandals

Morris: FBI Director Wray Hints at ‘Collaboration’ with Private Sector Amid Political Scandals

Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Director Christopher Wray alluded to “collaboration between the private sector and the government,” during Thursday remarks at the World Economic Forum — as the bureau remains mired in scandal following the “Twitter Files” revelations and braces for aggressive Congressional investigations.

Wray, speaking to an audience of global elites at the Davos gathering, touched on the federal government’s work with ostensibly private technology companies, during a discussion about the potential dangers of new technology. The FBI chief touted the “significant strides” the FBI in particular has made in efforts to work more closely with the tech industry.

Wray told the WEF audience:

I think the sophistication of the private sector is improving and, particularly important, the level of collaboration between the private sector and the government, especially the FBI has, I think, made significant strides. Pretty much every technology we could talk about today, we see both great opportunity but great, great dangers in the wrong hands.

The FBI boss’s comments come amid a flurry of reporting on how the FBI was directing censorship practices at Twitter and other social media companies, particularly regarding the dissemination of the New York Post‘s reporting on Biden family corruption, based on Hunter Biden’s infamous “laptop from hell,” ahead of the 2020 election.

Emails revealed by Elon Musk and reported by journalist Michael Shellenberger last month showed that the censorship on Twitter of the Post‘s reporting on the Biden family business was an operation led by the FBI, in conjunction with Twitter.

Shellenberger’s reporting revealed that federal agents “discredited factual information about Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings both after and *before* The New York Post revealed the contents of his laptop on October 14, 2020″ — working with top management at Twitter to censor and disparage the Post‘s reporting. Shellenberger’s reporting showed that the false narrative that the Post‘s 2020 reporting was part of an alleged “hack-and-leak” attack by “Russia” was conceived by the FBI — a narrative that was also adopted by legacy media as justification for their refusal to broadcast the story.

The FBI responded to the allegations by issuing a brash statement that refused to address the central claim in the reporting, saying the internal communications released by Musk “show nothing more” than normal day-to-day operations of the agency, and that the release of the correspondences were “conspiracy theorists” propagating “misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency.” The FBI, in its statement, did not specify who it was referring to as “conspiracy theorists,” nor did it provide any explanation of what materials were “misinformation.”

The revelations pertaining to Twitter came after Facebook (now known as Meta) CEO Mark Zuckerberg over the summer told Joe Rogan that the FBI was warning Facebook of “propaganda” ahead of the 2020 election, urging the platform to be “vigilant” to censor:

The FBI, I think basically came to us — some folks on our team and was like, ‘Hey, um, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert. There was the — we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that basically there’s about to be some kind of dump of — that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.’

Shortly afterward, the Post published its first article about the “laptop from hell,” which Facebook curbed distribution of on the platform.

“We just kind of thought, Hey look, if the FBI, which, you know, I still view as a legitimate institution in this country, it’s a very professional law enforcement,” Zuckerberg told Rogan. “They come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something. Then I wanna take that seriously.”

While Zuckerberg said the FBI did not specifically identify the Hunter Biden story as the “Russian propaganda” in question, “it basically fit the pattern.”

Wray’s comments also come as the Republican-led House gears up to investigate the political activity of the Bureau, and how it conducts what appear to be political operations through co-opting private businesses.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) will chair the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, to investigate the politicization of the FBI.

The subcommittee’s “probe into communications between tech giants and President Biden’s aides will look for government pressure that could have resulted in censorship or harassment of conservatives — or squelching of debate on polarizing policies, including the CDC on COVID,” according to a report by Axios. The GOP is reportedly comparing the subcommittee to the 1970’s “Church Commitee.”

Oversight Committee chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said last month that the GOP House must put a “halt” to FBI funding until they testify before Congress about their role in the censorship of the New York Post.

“Now, this we know with Twitter, we’ve heard similar stories from Zuckerberg. Who knows what went on at YouTube and Google? This is an agency that’s out of control,” Comer said on Fox Business Network’s Mornings with Maria.

Comer said in December:

And the most frustrating thing for me right now, Maria, is the fact that in this omnibus bill, there’s increased funding for the FBI, plus a $1.75 billion headquarters facility for the FBI. We need to halt everything with the FBI, all funding, until they come forward and explain to Congress exactly what they were doing, why they were doing it, and who gave them the authority to do it.

Most likely voters believe Congress should investigate the FBI’s involvement in social media censorship, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released last month.

Exclusive: Hunter Biden Lived in Wilmington House with Classified Documents While Bagging Millions Linked to the Highest Levels of Chinese Intelligence

While addicted to drugs, cavorting with prostitutes, and making deals with businessmen tied to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence, Hunter Biden lived in the house where Joe Biden stored classified documents.

On a background-check application dated July 2018, Hunter Biden claimed that he paid $49,910 per month in rent and that his “current residence” at that time was 1209 Barley Mill Road in Wilmington, Delaware, according to a document found on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop.

Hunter also listed that Wilmington address as his primary residence on at least one form of identification (his Delaware driver’s license) and used the same address as his billing address for both his personal credit card and Apple account in 2018 and 2019, a review of files from Hunter’s abandoned laptop reveals.

According to the background check document, Hunter claimed that he paid rent from March 2017 until February 2018 (11 months) at the Wilmington address leading some to wonder if he was paying rent to his father, who has owned the home since 1996. But Hunter apparently filled out the form in error.

Contrary to some reporting, Hunter Biden was not paying his father $49,910 per month; rather, that figure represents the amount Hunter was paying to rent prime office space at the prestigious House of Sweden in Washington, D.C., materials in Hunter’s laptop show.

Nevertheless, the period that Hunter claimed he was living at 1209 Barley Mill Rd (the Wilmington house where classified documents were found) overlaps with the time multiple Biden family members were taking money from foreign businessmen linked to the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) intelligence apparatus.

Hunter claimed on various documents and financial statements that he lived at the Wilmington House between early 2017 and 2019—immediately following his father’s second term as vice president and as Joe Biden was gearing up for his presidential run.

Given the discovery of the classified documents at multiple unsecure locations, the timeline of the Bidens’ Chinese business deals paints a troubling picture.

Beginning in late 2015, while his father was still vice president, Hunter Biden began making plans to meet with officials from the Chinese energy company CEFC. CEFC and at least four of its principals and associates, Ye Jianming, Patrick Ho, Gongwen Dong and Jiaqi Bao, have been linked to the Chinese government and its military intelligence apparatus. Hunter once described Patrick Ho as “the fucking spy chief of China.”

Many observers viewed CEFC as a state-directed entity. CNN, for example reported in 2018:

From the yellow stars in its logo to the fact it had China in its name – a privilege normally reserved for state-owned companies – CEFC China Energy’s messaging strongly suggested state ties.

By early 2017, Hunter was directly corresponding with CEFC personnel and flew to Miami in February of that year to meet with CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming. During this trip, Ye Jianming gave Hunter a 3.16 carat diamond valued at approximately $80,000.

Photo from Hunter Biden’s laptop showing the diamond he received from the CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming.

When Hunter’s ex-wife discovered that he had obtained something of such immense value, she had her divorce attorney send an “Urgent” email seeking to determine the whereabouts of the diamond and secure the asset before Hunter could “dissipate” it. Hunter’s attorney offered a shady denial:

There is no diamond in Hunter’s possession. I don’t know where Kathleen is getting access to this information, but on this score, what your email purports below is inaccurate.

Metadata gleaned from photos of the diamond on the abandoned laptop indicate that Hunter lied about not having the diamond and he in fact had the diamond with him in Wilmington. The current location of the 3.16 carat diamond remains unknown.

After the fateful February 2017 meeting with Ye, and around the time Hunter claimed to have moved into the Wilmington house where classified documents were found, the Bidens’ business with CEFC exploded.

Nine days after Miami meeting, Hunter received two separate wire transfers of $3 million which the Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network flagged as suspicious.

Between April 2017 and September 2018, CEFC and its affiliates funneled millions of dollars to the Bidens (mostly to Hunter, but some of that money flowed to Joe Biden’s brother and sister-in-law, James and Sara Biden). Joe Biden met with Hunter’s business partners during this time. All the while, top secret and sensitive compartmented information documents were just lying around in unsecured locations (such as the closet of the Penn Biden Center and the Wilmington garage), easily accessible by the Bidens and their associates.

James Biden, Joe’s brother, was central to the Biden business dealings with CEFC. One of Hunter’s former business associates, Tony Bobulinski, messaged another associate, James Gilliar, on April 30, 2017, wondering “what is the deal [with] Jim Biden as he wasn’t part of the discussion and now seems a focal point.” Likely alluding to Hunter’s addictions, Gilliar replied:

[With Hunter’s] demons, [it] could be good to have [Jimmy as] a backup…he strengthens our U[nique] S[elling] P[roposition] to [the] Chinese as it looks like a truly family business. [Emphasis added]

Bobulinski met with Hunter, James, and Joe Biden for at least an hour on the evening of May 2, 2017, and he alleges that they discussed the Biden family business dealings in China with which the former vice president was “plainly familiar.”

On May 13, 2017, Gilliar emailed Bobulinski an equity breakdown of a new business venture involving CEFC wherein Gilliar proposed Hunter will hold a 20 percent equity stake and 10 percent will be held by Hunter for “the big guy.” Tony Bobulinski alleges that Joe Biden is the big guy.

According to messages Bobulinski provided to congressional investigators, Hunter claimed he talked to Ye on a “regular basis” because “we have a standing once a week call as I am also his personal counsel (we signed an attorney client engagement letter) in the U.S.” Hunter also claimed he was advising Ye “on a number of his personal issues (staff visas and some more sensitive things).”

The chairman of CEFC, Ye Jianming, has been linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence and CNN reported that Ye was a suspected “princeling” of People’s Liberation Army top brass.

In their summer 2017 correspondences, Hunter sent “best wishes from the entire Biden family” and Ye concluded his reply “please accept my best regards to you and your family.”

Between February 9, 2017, and December 20,2018, tens of millions—perhaps more than $150 million—flowed between a dizzying web of CEFC-linked companies and shell corporations. And some of that money went directly into Biden family coffers.

On August 8, 2017, CEFC wired $5 million to an entity called Hudson West III. That same day, Hudson West began wiring payments that would ultimately total $4,790,375.25 to Hunter Biden’s Owasco LLC. The last payment was on September 25, 2018, according to congressional investigators. Between August 14, 2017, and August 3, 2018, Owasco sent 20 wires totaling $1,398,999 to James and his wife Sara Biden’s consulting firm.

The following photo retrieved from Hunter Biden’s hard drive appears to show a flow chart describing the ownership breakdown of Hudson West.

Throughout the summer of 2017, as the CEFC arrangements were being hashed out, Hunter talked with Ye Jianming about the impending legal troubles of another CEFC principal, Patrick Ho (the “spy chief”).

In September 2017, Hunter agreed to represent Ho and executed an agreement to provide “Counsel to matters related to US law and advice pertaining to the hiring and legal analysis of any US Law Firm or Lawyer.” Hunter was ultimately paid $1 million through his Owasco LLC (the wire transfer memo line read “Dr Patrick Ho Chi Ping Representation”) to represent Ho.

Patrick Ho was arrested on November 18, 2017 and he was convicted in December 2018 on international bribery and money laundering charges, according to the New York Times. Upon incarceration, Ho’s first phone call from jail was to James Biden. He was looking for Hunter and James Biden gave him Hunter’s contact information.

Notably, Hunter Biden had never been a serious attorney, so his receiving one million dollars to represent Ho is notable given that Hunter was apparently living in a house with classified documents at the time.

The same month that Hunter executed the representation agreement for the Patrick Ho matter, September 2017, CEFC-linked companies provided three separate credit cards for Hunter, James, and Sara Biden. These credit cards allowed the Bidens to go on extravagant shopping sprees and the racked up more than $100,000 in purchases.

Also in September 2017, Hunter Biden leased the plush office space at the House of Sweden for an entity called the Biden Foundation and for a CEFC branch. A September 2017 email shows Hunter requesting keys to the building for Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Jim Biden, and “Chairman Ye CEFC emissary.” It was here that he paid $49,910 per month. in rent.

And it was at this time that Hunter claimed 1209 Barley Mill Road as his residence. That home, owned by Joe and Jill Biden, is where Joe Biden kept the sensitive documents next to his Corvette in the garage (“so it’s not like [these classified documents] were just sitting in the street,” Biden said in his own defense last week).

By spring 2018, the business with CEFC was beginning to fall apart. Patrick Ho was tainted by his international bribery charges and Ye Jianming was under investigation in China for “suspected economic crimes,” and had essentially vanished after detention by CCP officials.

In a now famous January 2019 text message, Hunter complained to his daughter Naomi that Joe Biden (whom the family called “Pop”) had demanded half his (Hunter’s) salary for decades:

I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family [for] 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary.

Joe Biden benefitted from Hunter’s business dealings which helped to finance father’s monthly bills, paid for repairs to the Barley Mill road estate in Wilmington, and bankrolled the office space for Joe and Jill Biden’s foundation at the pricey House of Sweden complex.

My colleague Peter Schweizer’s runaway bestseller, Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, first revealed that the Biden family received some $31 million from the highest levels of Chinese intelligence at the same time Hunter was paying the vice president’s bills. Schweizer believes that there is a slam dunk case to indict Hunter Biden.

The latest developments involving apparent mishandling of classified information underscore the gravity of the ongoing Biden corruption scandals.

CNN ‘Breaks’ News The Federalist Reported Years Ago On James Biden

CNN ‘Breaks’ News The Federalist Reported Years Ago On James Biden

CNN published a nearly 4,000-word story Tuesday outlining the Biden family network of influence peddling, in which clan members touted their relationship to Joe Biden for personal profits.

“A famous last name, business deals and a looming probe: Republicans ramp up investigation of Biden family,” read the CNN headline, which, as always, frames Republicans as the aggressors.

The story highlighted how President Joe Biden’s brothers, Frank and James, have leveraged the family name for years to land lucrative business deals both at home and abroad. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, also infamously served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in excess compensation despite no prior experience in the industry.

Many of the details branded as revelations in CNN’s reporting, however, were already reported by The Federalist years ago.

In May 2020, Federalist Editor Mark Hemingway reported on a lawsuit alleging James Biden committed fraud and racketeering in deals with Americore Health, a health care management company focused on rural hospitals. Former Americore CEO Grant White claimed that James Biden promised to exploit the family’s name and political connections to drive tens of millions of dollars in international investment toward the company. Americore ultimately went bankrupt when said investment never came to fruition, White said, and the FBI raided his home.

Documents reported on by Hemingway allege James lined his own pockets instead with money that was promised for the company. According to CNN, James has since paid out $350,000 in a settlement.

Biden family business deals are currently under investigation by President Biden’s Department of Justice, both by the Delaware U.S. attorney’s office and in Pittsburgh.

According to Federalist Senior Legal Correspondent Margot Cleveland, the president’s appointed prosecutor appears to be allowing James Biden to escape a substantive federal investigation in the Western District of Pennsylvania.

“That the U.S. attorney Joe Biden appointed to the job, and who has since been nominated by the president to a federal appellate clerkship, is overseeing this investigation is scandalous,” Cleveland wrote. “Attorney General Merrick Garland should immediately tap a special counsel to investigate Jim Biden’s involvement with Americore.”

Garland appointed a special counsel to probe President Biden’s apparent mishandling of classified documents last week, but no special counsel has been appointed to delve into the potential corruption concerns of Biden family members leveraging their proximity to the president in shady business deals. The family business ventures were among Cleveland’s top 10 scandals to watch in 2023.

Transactions between James and Hunter Biden and influential individuals connected to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), meanwhile, were flagged in September 2020 by Senate investigators as potential criminal activity.

Frank Biden Peddled White House Influence During Joe Biden’s Presidency

President Joe Biden’s younger brother Frank Biden peddled White House influence during Joe Biden’s presidency, according to a CNN report that indicates the Biden family business remains operational even since Joe Biden was elected.

On at least two separate occasions, Frank Biden publicly cited Joe Biden as a means by which he has influence, despite holding no government position or relation to the White House other than by having the same last name as the president and being his sibling.

In October, Frank Biden spoke in Venice, Italy, as the keynote speaker at a BioSig Technologies conference about “the future of global health care.” BioSig Technologies is a health technology company. The trip was not paid for by Frank Biden, who refused to disclose the financier.

His speech included advice on how lobbyists could influence American policy. CNN reported the instance of influence peddling:

The speaker was not a doctor. Nor did he have an extensive background in health care, global or otherwise. But Francis W. “Frank” Biden did have something else: A brother in the White House.

In his speech, Frank Biden talked about his family and his brother’s cancer initiative, according to attendees. Following his remarks, the leader of a trade group who attended the event promptly posted a video from Venice informing members he represents that he’d spoken with Frank Biden about their efforts to lobby the federal government on Medicare reimbursement rules. The president’s brother, he told his members, had agreed to help.

Another case of Frank Biden’s influence peddling occurred in Boston in 2021 — the year after Joe Biden was elected. On behalf of the same company, BioSig Technologies, Frank Biden told health professionals at a dinner that he had a “bully pulpit” due to “my brother Joey.”

CNN reported:

At that event, Frank Biden boasted of “the bully pulpit that I have as a result of the privilege of being associated with my brother Joey,” and vowed to “do everything in my power to support you to get the job done, to get federal dollars to your research,” a video of his speech shows.

Frank Biden’s working history with BioSig Technologies is unclear. According to the report, Frank Biden initially told CNN he had worked for the company for a year before reversing himself, claiming he never worked for the company, only that he gave BioSig Technologies “informal sales assistance.”

The Biden family has had multiple instances of influence peddling, but none so recent as Frank Biden’s. Hunter Biden, Frank Biden’s nephew, has repeatedly appeared to sell influence based on his relationship with his father, who has been an elected official for over 50 years.

According to Breitbart News’s senior contributor Peter Schweizer, Hunter earned great sums of money from Ukraine for which he “offered no real work,” a statement that infers Hunter was profiting from peddling White House influence. In one of the most blatant cases, Hunter was paid $83,000 per month in 2017 to be on the board of Burisma. Hunter was appointed to the board of Burisma in 2014 with no prior experience in the energy sector or Ukraine.

In 2015, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion from Ukraine if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma. In 2017, Hunter’s salary was cut in half when Joe Biden left the White House as then-Vice President.

Rep. James Comer (R-KY), House Oversight Committee chair, has vowed to investigate the influence peddling by probing the Biden family’s bank records. In April, Breitbart News reported that more than 150 of the Biden family business bank transactions were flagged by United States banks as suspicious. Those flagged reports were sent to Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen for further review to ascertain if the Biden family was engaged in wrongdoing.

Memos Expose Biden’s drive to tap ‘earnings potential’ with China Deal

Memos Expose Biden’s drive to tap ‘earnings potential’ with China Deal


Memos Expose Biden’s drive to tap ‘earnings potential’ with China Deal

Memos tell the tale of how Hunter Biden and his business associates focused on father’s “wealth creation.”

By John Solomon

Just 18 months into his vice presidency, Joe Biden had a conversation with one of Hunter Biden’s business associates that left an indelible impression about his desire to create future wealth.

“Your Dad just called me (about his mortgage) and mentioned he’d be out a lot soon and not really back until Labor Day,” Rosemont Seneca executive Eric Schwerin wrote Hunter Biden on July 6, 2010 in an email on a laptop seized by the FBI. “So it dawned on me it might be a good time (also he could use some positive news about his future earnings potential!).”

Schwerin, who worked alongside Hunter Biden at the Rosemont Seneca investment firm and also doubled as a financial and tax adviser to the future president, asked Hunter Biden to consider meeting with his father soon to discuss the issue, according to the email.

“Does it make sense to see if your Dad has some time in the next couple of weeks while you are in DC to talk about it?” he wrote in the email entitled “JRB Future Memo” using the future president’s initials as shorthand.

You can read that memo here:

By 2016, as Joe Biden was planning to leave the Obama White House, those conversations with Hunter Biden had graduated to “wealth creation” and the founding of a foreign policy think tank, according to emails that have taken on new significance after the discovery of classified documents in Biden’s office and home renewed focus on the first family’s foreign business deals.

Buried in a Hunter Biden laptop now in the FBI’s possession are a series of emails, documents and messages that explain how America’s first family got so deeply intertwined — especially in 2017-18 after he left the Obama White House — with Chinese interests now under federal and congressional investigation.

Matters under scrutiny include the University of Pennsylvania, which hosted the former VP’s Penn Biden Center and received $47.7 million in gifts and contracts from Chinese sources while Biden worked as a guest lecturer, and CEFC, a Chinese conglomerate that formed a business venture with the president’s son Hunter and brother James.

The most common link to the interests that have landed the Biden family in political hot water was Hunter Biden, who courted the University of Pennsylvania before it hired his father and pursued several Chinese deals, including an investment fund, the sale of a U.S. company that made sensitive technology, and eventually the creation of the CEFC venture aimed at buying up U.S. gas interests for China.

Today, both father and son are under DOJ investigation: the president for possible mishandling of classified documents and Hunter for taxes and other issues.

Just the News has reported over the last year that Hunter Biden and Schwerin occasionally discussed Joe Biden’s finances, even discussing how the future president wanted to use a Delaware tax refund to pay back his son and identifying bills like cell phones and house repairs that Hunter Biden wanted to pay for his father.

As the prospect of Joe Biden’s move from politics to the private sector drew nearer, entities and people associated with foreign interests — especially in China — surfaced more frequently.

A year after the 2010 conversation about Joe Biden’s “future earnings potential,” for instance, Hunter Biden began exploring an investment opportunity inside China with both excitement and trepidation.

“I don’t believe in lottery tickets anymore, but I do believe in the super chairman,” Hunter Biden wrote in one email exchange in September 2011, referring to a business partner in Hong Kong.

Hunter Biden seemed to understand that a political family tied to the White House also faced risks by dabbling in China business and why such interests wanted to be associated with him.

“Your question — ‘why does Super Chair love me so much?’ is easily answered,” he wrote then-business partner Devon Archer. “It has nothing to do with me and everything to do with my last name.”

That email suggested Archer and Biden “have to have a long talk about how we divide things going forward” if the deal was consummated and warned that their Chinese business partners might “come after us for f’ing up their relationships in Beijing.”

In December 2013, Hunter Biden was flying aboard Air Force II with the vice president for a meeting in Beijing, which triggered the creation of an investment fund and occasioned a brief greeting between his father and one of the Chinese business partners.

By 2015, Hunter Biden had facilitated the sale of the Michigan-based auto parts maker Henniges Automotive, which made sensitive anti-vibration technology potentially usable for military fighter jets, to one of China’s main military aircraft makers, Aviation Industry Corporation of China or AVIC.

That same year, Hunter Biden began courting the University of Pennsylvania and its top leader while also receiving a new overture from China that would eventually lead to one of the first family’s most controversial deals, the CEFC energy partnership.

CEFC first approached Hunter Biden about making a donation to the U.S. World Food Programme, which he served as honorary chairman.

“Hunter was recently approached by a large privately owned Chinese corporation, called CEFC Energy China, that has a U.S. based foundation,” Schwerin wrote in October 2015.

“They’d like to explore making a donation to WFP USA and their CEO would like to meet with the appropriate person at WFP USA the last week of October when he is in the U.S.” he added. “My assumption based on the conversations I have had with them is that it would be more than just a token donation.”

Soon, he and his partners would steer the discussion to personal business, when Hunter Biden was invited to a private meeting in December 2015 with CEFC’s Chairman Ye in Washington D.C.

“I am confident that many interesting projects may come out of that in the future,” a business associate wrote in explaining why Hunter Biden should attend.

As Just the News, The Washington Post and others have reported, the CEFC courtship eventually landed the Biden family a large diamond as a gift and a no-interest, forgivable $5 million loan that enriched the first family.

As the CEFC deals heated up, Hunter Biden also warmed the fires at the University of Pennsylvania, discussing with then-wife Kathleen hosting a pivate dinner for Penn president Amy Guttman.

“Maybe just ask her if Amy would rather just do dinner with mom dad and us — or if she wants we can do the larger dinner,” Hunter Biden wrote in February 2015.

Calendar notations and other correspondence indicate that dinner was booked for April 2015.

Penn, like many other Ivy League schools, was growing its relationship with China, collecting millions in donations while also creating programs in the communist country, according to the university’s own reports to the federal government and its website.

Data gathered by the National Legal and Policy Center and appended to a complaint in 2020 shows Penn obtained $67.6 million in grants and contracts from Chinese sources between 2013 and 2019, with most of it — $47.7 million — collected in the time Joe Biden was paid more than $900,000 by the university to work as a guest lecturer and lend his name to the Penn Biden Center think tank in 2017-19.

Hunter Biden’s emails suggest he played a role in the meetings during the late Obama years that eventually landed his father the lucrative gig at Penn, including an April 2016 gathering at the Naval Observatory where the then-vice president lived.

Joe Biden eventually recalled the conversations with Guttman that landed him the Penn job, saying it became particularly attractive to him when he learned the university would not only employ him but also many staffers, like Antony Blinken, who would eventually follow him back to the White House as secretary of state after Biden’s 2020 presidential election win.

“President Guttman, you came to me before the [Obama] administration was up and asked me would I consider being a professor at Penn,” he recalled during a videotaped interview with NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell at the Penn Biden Center when it opened in 2018. “The first thought I had was that it sounded like an intriguing idea.

“But it became even more intriguing after the outcome of the election when you said I could bring along with me some serious, serious people, serious staff people. And they’re much more than staff. And I start with Tony Blinken and Steve Riccetti and others, so thank you for allowing me to bring along some really, really bright people.”

You can watch Joe Biden’s remarks about Penn here:

Eventually, President Joe Biden would reward Guttman with a prized ambassadorship to Germany and the school’s chairman of the board of trustees with an ambassadorship to Canada.

While that Biden-Penn deal was being finalized, Hunter Biden became engaged in conversations with Craig Gering, an agent at the Creative Artists Agency, in April 2016.

Gering emailed Hunter Biden a rough plan for the vice president’s private life after he left office. It included the Penn Biden Center, a Delaware University relationship, a private foundation and fourth item simply called “wealth creation.”

“The Biden Institute of Foreign Relations at the University of Pennsylvania,” Gering  wrote. “Focus on foreign policy. In addition to the institute at U of Penn, the school has an existing office in DC that will be expanded to house a DC office for VP Biden (and Mike, Hunter and Steve?). Operates like The Clinton Global Initiative without the money raise.”

“Yes,” Hunter wrote back, cautioning his father’s plans were not fully formed. “In theory that’s the way I would like to see it shake out. BUT please keep this very confidential between us because nothing has been set in stone and there’s still a lot of sensitivity around all of this both internally and externally.”

You can read that email exchange here:

Today, the Biden family’s pursuit of “earnings potential” and “wealth creation” are at the center of a burgeoning investigation by House Republicans.

House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) told Just the News last week his investigation into the classified government documents discovery was being expanded to include whether the flow of China money to Penn and the Biden family businesses were part of a coordinated effort by the communist country.

“This is very concerning,” Comer told the “Just the News, No Noise” television show. “We’re sending a letter to Penn requesting documents related to the Chinese donations. We want a list of individuals involved, whoever was involved in soliciting donations from China. We want all communications because I think this is very important.

“This is another aspect of the potential for this family to be compromised.”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
