(RepublicanWire.org) – In 1974, Joe Biden appeared for an interview on PBS and told everyone that he’s “not sure you should assume I’m not corrupt.”

The comment came in response to a question about how he was elected and whether it was the result of corruption in politics.

The interviewer asked, “As the youngest member of the Senate, the one therefore who may expect the longest career there, I wonder if you’d say to us since it’s clear that you’re not corrupt and you got elected, why should people think that the system produces corrupt results when there you are?”

Biden responded, “I’m not sure you should assume I’m not corrupt, but thank you for that, though.”

Joe Biden is accused of being involved in his son’s corrupt overseas business dealings. Hunter Biden is currently under federal investigation by the FBI for tax fraud, money laundering, and the violation of lobbying laws.

For years, the entire Biden family has been cashing in on the career and power of Joe Biden. This includes his son Hunter, his brother James, and his brother-in-law Jack.

One text message from Hunter revealed that Joe takes 50% of his earnings. Text messages and emails repeatedly indicate that Joe Biden was involved in these shady business dealings.

Joe once even flew on Air Force Two to attend a meeting with Hunter in China. He also wrote a college recommendation letter and faxed it directly to the president of Brown University on behalf of the son of Hunter’s Chinese business partner.

Below we have compiled 11 instances via Breitbart where Joe Biden is allegedly involved in Hunter’s business dealings. Joe Biden is repeatedly referred to as “the big guy” in Hunter’s text message exchanges and emails.

This information has been wrongfully buried and censored for years as part of a massive, left-wing cover-up scandal being carried out on social media. Hunter’s laptop and its contents were eventually “authenticated” in March 2022, even though the story surfaced months before the presidential election in 2020.

ONE: According to The New York Post, Hunter traveled to China in 2013 with his father aboard Air Force Two. Hunter introduced Joe Biden to his Chinese business partner. Ten days later, China issued Hunter’s firm a business license and the firm won a contract worth $1 billion.

Ten days later, Hunter’s company inked a deal with the state-owned Bank of China and created the $1 billion investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), according to reporting by Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and the best-selling author of “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.”

A representative for BHR told The New Yorker in July 2019 that Hunter Biden introduced his father to Chinese private equity executive Jonathan Li during the trip. Li later became the CEO of BHR.

NBC News also covered the scandal:

TWO: Joe Biden met with Hunter’s Mexican business associates, billionaire Miguel Alemán Velasco and his son Miguel Aleman Magnani, in the vice president’s office in 2014. Photos were taken at the meeting:

THREE: Joe Biden went golfing in the Hamptons with his son Hunter and Devon Archer, Hunter’s fellow board member for Ukrainian gas company Burisma in 2014. Archer is now in prison for fraud. Reuters, Politico, and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson have covered this story in detail. The photograph was first released by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight in September 2019.

FOUR: Hunter brought Joe Biden to dinner with his business associates from Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan in 2015. Joe Biden was vice president at the time. Photos were taken of Biden at the dinner while flanked by Kazakhstani oligarch Kenes Rakishev and Karim Massimov, a former prime minister of Kazakhstan.

FIVE: After Joe Biden dined with Hunter’s foreign business partners, one of them emailed Hunter his thanks for the “opportunity to meet your father.”

SIX: Joe Biden brought Hunter aboard Air Force Two to Mexico in 2016. Hunter met with his business associates from Mexico City.

SEVEN: Joe Biden wrote a college recommendation letter in 2017 for a child of Hunter’s Chinese business partner, Jonathan Li, with whom Joe Biden met in China. Fox News covered the story in detail:

In an email dated Jan. 3, 2017, and sent to Hunter Biden and his business associates Devon Archer and Jim Bulger, CEO of BHR Jonathan Li writes:

“Gentlmen[sic], please find the attached resume of my son, Chris Li. He is applying the following colleges for this year,” Li writes, listing Brown University, Cornell University, and New York University.

Li goes on to attach an “updated version” of his son’s “CV” in a subsequent email.

EIGHT: Hunter described Joe Biden as one of his “new office mates” in 2017. The Washington Post reported:

On Sept. 21, 2017, Hunter Biden wrote to a building manager requesting new office signage to reflect a new family enterprise and a new business relationship: “The Biden Foundation and Hudson West (CEFC-US),” he wrote in emails to the property manager.

He also requested keys for his new office mates: his father, Joe; his mother, Jill; his uncle James; and the Chinese executive, Gongwen Dong.

As part of the request, he provided what he said was his father’s cellphone number, saying an office representative could use it to contact his new office mates.

NINE: Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s former business partner, twice met with Joe Biden to discuss a business deal with China in 2017. “I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden,” Bobulinski admitted.

TEN: Tony Bobulinski met with Joe Biden, brother Jim Biden, and Hunter to discuss their deal in China. After the meeting, Bobulinski messaged Jim, telling him to “thank Joe for his time.”

ELEVEN: Hunter’s texts in 2019 revealed that his father, Joe Biden, takes half of Hunter’s salary.

In a text message to his daughter, Hunter says, “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 [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary,” Hunter wrote.

“The reported texts do not reveal when the 30 years began or ended and whether Joe Biden is still a part of the payment scheme as president,” Breitbart concluded.

(RepublicanWire.org) – A judge on Monday dismissed part of a lawsuit filed by Kari Lake, the defeated Republican candidate for Arizona governor, but will allow her to call witnesses in an attempt to prove that she lost because of misconduct by election officials.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissed eight of the 10 claims Lake raised in her lawsuit, which asks the judge to either declare her the winner or hold another election in the county. Thompson took no position on the merits of Lake’s two surviving claims, but he wrote that the law allows her to make her case.

Lake lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs by just over 17,000 votes out of 2.6 million cast. She will attempt to prove in a two-day hearing scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday that ballot printers malfunctioned in Maricopa County because of intentional interference by election officials and that ballots were improperly added at a county contractor that handles returned mail ballots.

A representative for Lake will be allowed to examine 150 ballots on Tuesday.

“Buckle up, America. This is far from over,” Lake wrote on Twitter after the ruling.

She faces the extremely high bar of proving not only that misconduct occurred but that it affected the outcome of her race. Thompson will make a final decision, which will likely be appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Thompson said the defendants in the case dispute the lack of compliance with chain of custody laws and claim that Lake has misunderstood the forms required. Thompson said, as presented, whether the county complied with its own manual and applicable statutes is a dispute of fact rather than one of law. 

The judge dismissed a variety of constitutional claims, including Lake’s allegation that Hobbs, in her capacity as secretary of state, and Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer engaged in censorship by flagging social media posts with election misinformation for possible removal by Twitter.

Lake has zeroed in on problems with ballot printers at some polling places in Maricopa County, home to more than 60 percent of voters. The defective printers produced ballots that were too light to be read by the on-site tabulators at polling places. Lines backed up in some areas amid the confusion.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Former President Donald Trump refused to stand idly by as a narrative was built around his reaction to “The Twitter Files” and he came out swinging against the “FOOLS” who would disagree with his actual point.

On Friday, journalist Matt Taibbi posted his thread on Twitter that began delivering receipts on how the social media platform had evidently worked at the behest of government officials and political organizations to suppress unfavorable stories, including about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

With the uncovered activity standing as evidence of election interference, Trump had issued a statement on Saturday that read in part, “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

As previously reported, corporate media and Democrats used these words to malign the former president, and even Elon Musk, who provided the necessary access for “The Twitter Files,” weighed in, “The Constitution is greater than any President. End of story.”

By Monday, Trump had seen more than enough of the claims that he wanted to eliminate the founding document he strove to uphold during his administration and slammed it as just another in the long line of “HOAXES & SCAMS” perpetuated by “The Fake News.”

“The Fake News is actually trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to ‘terminate’ the Constitution. This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES, just like RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, and all of their other HOAXES & SCAMS,” the former president wrote on Truth Social. “What I said was that when there is ‘MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION,’ as has been irrefutably proven in the 2020 Presidential Election, steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG. Only FOOLS would disagree with that and accept STOLEN ELECTIONS. MAGA!”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Gov. Gavin Newsom of California, who in recent years has burnished his profile as a future White House contender, told President Joe Biden on election night that he was not planning a 2024 primary challenge, according to Politico’s Jonathan Martin.

Newsom “told everyone in the White House” ranging “from the chief of staff to the first lady” about his intentions, he revealed to Martin — and was firmly behind the president’s expected reelection bid.

During a trip to Washington, DC this past summer, he wanted Ron Klain and Jill Biden to know that he was “all in” for the president’s plans for 2024.

“I’m all in, count me in,” Newsom told the pair, per his conversation with Martin.

“He not only beat Trump once, I think he can beat him again,” the governor said of Biden. “I hope he runs, I’ll enthusiastically support him.”

Newsom, who was easily reelected to a second term as governor this month after winning his 2018 gubernatorial election in a landslide and also defeating a 2021 recall election attempt, has emerged on the national scene as a staunch promoter of the Democratic Party’s values.

This year, Newsom has encouraged Democrats to go bold in their agenda and more effectively communicate with voters about their policies, notably abortion rights. And he has publicly tussled with Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, who could potentially launch a 2024 presidential bid against former President Donald Trump.

But the high-profile nature of Newsom’s remarks led many to believe that he was plotting for a 2024 bid of his own, which frustrated him.

“It’s frustrating because I have so much reverence and respect for not only the president but the vice president is an old friend, for all of those interesting things you guys all love to write about, we’ve known each other for 25 years,” said Newsom, who also mentioned Vice President Kamala Harris, a former California state attorney general and US senator.

Newsom then said he wouldn’t run for president in 2024 even if Biden reverses course and opts out of a reelection bid, but the governor didn’t rule out a 2028 campaign, per the interview with Martin.

The California governor, one of the younger generation leaders within the Democratic Party, has not held back in critiquing the party, which is something that many progressives have been clamoring for — with many grassroots activists frustrated that the party’s leaders aren’t more frequently on the offensive against the GOP.

Newsom declared California “a true freedom state” while speaking with reporters, touting the Golden State compared to states that have passed a raft of abortion restrictions after Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court this past summer.

In the midterm elections, California voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure that amended the state constitution to guarantee reproductive freedom.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Former President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka, sent shockwaves through the political realm Tuesday by releasing a statement announcing that she will not be participating in her father’s second bid for the presidency.

“I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics,” she said in a statement released around 10:00 pm.

“While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena. I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our Administration’s accomplishments,” she added.

The statement was released shortly after her father announced his candidacy for office. Ivanka reportedly didn’t attend the announcement rally, but her husband, former senior Trump administration advisor Jared Kushner, did.

Ivanka’s decision comes despite a concerted effort by her father to convince her to participate in his campaign just as she’d done so six years earlier.

“Trump spent part of daughter Tiffany’s lavish Mar-a-Lago wedding this past weekend trying to convince his much-loved elder daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law Jared Kushner to be with him on stage when he announces his third consecutive run for the presidency at the Palm Beach resort Tuesday night,” the New York Post reported Monday, citing insider sources.

“Trump thought he could convince Ivanka this weekend to come back and campaign for him as she was the most requested speaker after the president himself last time around … but so far she’s resisting his entreaties and holding firm, as is Jared,” one of the sources said.

“They both feel they got burned in Washington and don’t want to go back and expose themselves and their children to another bitter campaign,” the source added.

It’s not entirely clear why Kushner wound up showing up anyway, though this reportedly doesn’t mean he’s changed his mind and will be participating in his father-in-law’s reelection campaign.

Neither are Eric Trump and his wife, Lara Trump, nor the president’s wife, Melania, expected to hold any significant roles in the administration, despite all three being in attendance at Tuesday’s rally.

(RepublicanWire.org) – MSNBC host Katy Tur speculated on Wednesday that Pennsylvania Senator-Elect John Fetterman could run for the presidency someday.

Fetterman’s victory against Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz provided Democrats a flipped Senate seat on Tuesday, in which several MSNBC panelists praised him for bringing new leadership tactics to the Democratic Party.

Tur floated the viability of, “Fetterman, as a nominee at some point for president,” before later going on to say that his record for surpassing President Biden and former President Trump’s vote share in the state. 

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell declared that she had extensive experience with Pennsylvania, and praised Fetterman for making so much progress with voters.

“I spent a lot of time covering this race, and with Pennsylvania politics, going back some decades, and I started my career there, but the fact that John Fetterman did, first of all, so much better with White non-college-educated voters. Better than Biden, better than Trump, so he ran ahead of both of them, but he also, you know, did fairly well in the cities and in the unintelligible counties.”

She attributed multiple reasons for Fetterman’s victory, including merely being more palatable to many voters than his Republican opposition.

“I attribute that partly due to the extremism at the top of the ticket in Pennsylvania,” she said. “With Mastriano, Dr. Oz’s comments on abortion, which part of that debate that perhaps did not get as much attention, it got attention from the professionals, but not from a lot of the media, because that really was as big of a deal coming out of that debate as Fetterman’s performance.”

Fetterman was criticized in the final days of the campaign for his lack of transparency over his recovery from a stroke, inconsistent answers on issues like fracking and a widely panned debate performance last month.

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki praised Fetterman for appealing to voters through authenticity.

“I also think he ran everywhere in the state, which is a lesson for Democrats. He left no stone unturned. And he ran as exactly who he is. I mean I have no doubt that if John Fetterman were sitting here, if he were in a bar or if he was with his family in a restaurant, he would be exactly the same person,” she said. “And voters completely see through that. So that is also a lesson for Democrats, too. This is a guy you know who he is, you know what you’re getting, and that ultimately matters in politics.”

Tur went one step above praising his performance as a candidate for Senate, suggesting he could aim for the presidency but acknowledged there are “some variables.” 

“I know there’s some variables, obviously, but I just, you know, what he did in the super-red, deep-red parts of Pennsylvania and the way that he ran ahead of Biden, ran ahead of Trump, and it makes you wonder about his future,” she said. 

Fetterman, the 6-foot, 8-inch lieutenant governor and former mayor of tiny Braddock, Pennsylvania, eked out a narrow win over Oz despite a shocking performance in their only debate. Fetterman began the October 26 by telling viewers, “Goodnight, everybody,” and then proceeded to give a number of head-scratching answers that invited both pity and ridicule.

At one point, he was confronted with his past conflicting statements on fracking.

“I do support fracking — I don’t, I don’t — I support fracking, and I stand — and I do support fracking,” he stammered.

Speeches on the campaign trail have also included incomprehensible soundbites as Fetterman continues to rely on a closed captioning system to field and respond to questions.

“I think that anyone who ever plays football in high school was, you know, at kind of a trade out kind of football camp and there wasn’t any interest I have come play here,” he told a rally just prior to Election Day.

But Fetterman, who campaigned as a blue-collar everyman, typically donning baggy shorts and a hoodie on the trail, was an inspiration to many liberals, including Tur, for his effort to overcome the stroke, which occurred just days before he won the Keystone State’s Democratic primary.

(RepublicanWire.org) – The final push for the midterms was underway in Pennsylvania Saturday as the commonwealth remained one of the top battlegrounds for control of the Senate with Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz in a tight race with Fetterman. As part of the last ditch effort to garner votes, Obama traveled with the struggling Democrat, but the optics only emphasized the life support the campaign was relying on.

“Today Dr. Oz is gonna be standing with Donald Trump on the stage,” Fetterman said of the dueling rallies across the Keystone State, “and I’m gonna be proud to be standing with a president that is a hundred percent sedition free.”

No sooner had the statement left the candidates mouth, the wind picked up and toppled the backdrop of American flags behind the stage. After RNC Research posted a clip of the event with the caption, “John Fetterman’s rally is off to a great start…” Donald Trump Jr. shared the video and called the incident, “The perfect metaphor for Fetterman’s campaign.”

The New York Post’s Miranda Devine suggested there was something bigger at play and that “God has had enough!!”

She wasn’t alone in suspecting as Democrats campaign on abortion and corrupting and mutilating children that the Almighty may have making a point about the left’s platform. Ian Miles Cheong wrote,”Someone up there doesn’t like it when Fetterman tells lies.”

Similarly, Jack Posobiec drew attention to the imagery from a nearby Save America rally featuring  Republican gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Doug Mastriano and former President Donald Trump where a rainbow had appeared in Latrobe, PA about 35 miles away from the Democrats. He opined, “Signs and portents.”

Polling in Pennsylvania leading into the final weekend before the midterm showed Oz with a slight lead over Fetterman within the margin of error and still below the 50 percent threshold as nearly four percent remain undecided. As such, the weight of optics before Tuesday looms large and all of the momentum looks to be favoring Republicans in Pennsylvania following the train wreck that was the one and only debate between the candidates.

“What a visual for a sunken candidate,” Club for Growth Vice President of Government Affairs Scott Parkinson wrote as Peter Towey of Targeted Victory suggested, “John Fetterman’s lead fell faster then the flags.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – The Democrats know that their main vulnerabilities heading into Tuesday’s midterm elections are inflation, gas prices, crime and illegal immigration. The Dem strategy is now to gaslight by pretending those problems don’t really exist, and if they do in some places they’re just the fault of Republican exaggerations in their efforts to win back the House, Senate and state offices.

Hillary Clinton is trying to help out the Democrats by claiming that increased crime is actually a problem Republicans have caused. 

“The states with the highest crime levels are states run by Republicans. That’s just a fact! We saw that very clearly in the recent debate in Oklahoma.” Clinton proclaimed.

Hillary is just trying to scare voters into not voting Republican by claiming Republicans are just scaring voters. It is both confusing and ridiculous. 

(RepublicanWire.org) – President Biden claimed on Tuesday that he spoke to the man who “invented” insulin, there is just one problem, the doctor died before Biden was born. 

The president’s comments came during an event in Hallandale Beach, Florida, during which he touted his administration’s efforts to lower healthcare costs for Americans. 

“How many of you know somebody with diabetes, and needs insulin,” Biden asked the crowd. 

“Do you know how much it costs to make that insulin drug for diabetes? … It was invented by a man who did not patent it because he wanted it available for everyone. I spoke to him, OK?” Biden claimed.

Dr. Frederick Banting, who was one of the doctors who discovered insulin in 1921 — refused to put his name on the patent — passed away in February of 1941. Joe Biden was not even born until November of 1942 — some 21 months later.

Banting received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 1923 following his discovery. His assistant, Dr. Charles Best, was a medical student at the time and assisted with the discovery. He did put his name on the patent, along with Dr. James Bertram Collip, who helped refine it, but the two sold the patent to the University of Toronto for $1.

All three believed that it would not be ethical for them to take profits from something that could potentially save thousands or even millions of lives.

Physiologist John MacLeod, who also chose not to be named on the patent, played a role in the discovery, but had passed away in 1935. While both Drs. Collip and Best were still living after Biden was born, he ruled them out as the ones he spoke to because they did ultimately put their names on the patent.

Biden also misspoke about the ongoing “war in Iraq” and also claimed it was where his son died.

“Inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq and the impact on oil and what Russia’s doing, excuse me, the war in Ukraine,” Biden said.

“I’m thinking of Iraq because that’s where my son died,” he added, as an excuse for the verbal slip.

Biden spent most of his speech expressing anger toward Republicans and concluded his speech with a final dig at his political opponents.

“God bless you all. God protect our troops and God give our Republican friends some enlightenment,” he said.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York denied that government policies exacerbated inflation and instead blamed corporate greed while claiming Americans were in an “environment of fascism.”

Ocasio-Cortez made the claims while being interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes on his show. She was addressing how Democrats were failing in polls ahead of the midterm elections because of the weak economy.

“Even when we talk about issues like inflation. A lot of this has to do with the massive consolidation of our markets and corporate greed,” she claimed emphatically.

“Our inflation is not going up due to government policies, inflation is going up due to Wall Street decisions,” she angrily said.

Earlier in the interview, she also said America was facing “an environment of fascism” from Republican candidates running for Congress in the midterms in reference to some citizens, mostly on the right, ostensibly guarding voter ballot boxes from voter fraud.

“There is absolutely no doubt that the data shows that the vast majority of incidents of domestic terror come from white nationalism,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And that we are really truly facing an environment of fascism and in the United States of America,” she continued, “this type of intimidation at the polls brings us to Jim Crow, it bring us back and hearkens back to a very unique form of American apartheid that is not that long past ago. And we have never fully healed from it. And those wounds threaten to rip right back open if we do not strongly defend democracy in United States of America.”

Ocasio-Cortez was repeating a well-worn defense used by Democrats and others to try to defend President Joe Biden and his high-spending policies from those saying they made inflation worse. Polls show that Americans mostly blame Biden’s policies for inflation ahead of a key midterm election season.

Though current inflation levels were likely inevitable due to the Federal Reserve’s decade-long zero interest rate and quantitative easing policy following the 2008 recession, the creation of $5 trillion into the money supply out of thin air during COVID greatly exacerbated the inflation rate.

Though the Federal Reserve is incrementally raising interest rates, the government is still continuing to spend more than it takes in, especially as a result of the Biden regime constantly sending billions of dollars the U.S. doesn’t have to Ukraine.
