(RepublicanWire.org) – As more information comes out from Hunter Biden’s infamous “laptop from hell” new details are being reported by various outlets, Americans are getting an intimate look into the first family, and all it’s scandals.

The laptop that Hunter reportedly abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware also contained another bombshell, an angry, bitter letter he wrote but apparently did not send to President Joe Biden that was drafted on Jan. 14, 2017.

In his letter he wrote, “I’ll make it the last time and you can ignore it or i hope at least acknowledge that the three people on earth who have lived their lives in service to you who love you more than the next 30 combined have suddenly all concluded for their own reasons that you have finally crossed the line – that we won’t be publicly and privately humiliated while those that publicly and privately humiliate us.”

“Love is an action dad not an emotion. Think how your brother and sister express their love for you. They do anything you tell them to do and have their whole lives,” his letter continued.

In the letter, Hunter Biden praises his relatives who helped after Joe Biden’s wife was killed in a car crash.

“Mom mom and Aunt Val saved MY life dad they saved Beaus life Dad you saved our lives — i understand the lie serves your purpose Dad but to make two boys who had the three greatest mothers god could conceive taken from them that they had to buy into it or they would be betraying you is pretty awful – because that is not choice we would ever even let sit in our minds a moment.”

At one point in the letter, Hunter Biden appears to stand up strong for his uncle and Joe Biden’s brother, James Biden, in a rambling manner:

Do you who has done more for me been more loyal and is actual embodiment of your line – if you have to ask it’s too late. Uncle Jimmy is the only person I have ever known by a factor of ten that has never asked firs .

1 have seen him take punch after punch in the face from every drowning family member he has saved and when the crowd of gawkers gather around and say wow that was so brave so selfless he without exception says what do you mean that was my brother who not me. Well where did you get the broken nose and black eye- and the whole family says well you know Jim he’s reckless he’s a hothead he leaps before he looks– he’s a lovable tornado. How do you let that stand?

Because it there is one hero in this story that deserves the Medal of Honor for throwing himself on the grenade it’s my uncle and it’s like Groundhog Day no matter how hard he try’s to rewrite the story each time he puts himself back together again it’s the same ending, there’s a grenade in the living room on Christmas Eve and the whole family gathers around and postures and pontificates or hides under the couch or pushes someone in front of them and there’s uncle Jim missing both legs in a wheel chair with one eye and maybe not until Ive seen him do it a hundred times before does he say “come on – guys at least help me out of my chair and this time please don’t make me drive myself to the hospital- get me a cab and I’ll pay you back.”

In conclusion, Hunter Biden wrote: “So dad on arguably the most rewarding day in your career you fail to even say and I want publicly thank the heart and soul of this family the….” — the letter ends suddenly at that point.

(RepublicanWire.org) – CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter last week extolled the importance of journalistic humility, counseling reporters and pundits to admit when they’re wrong, all while continuing to defend his initial dismissal of the Hunter Biden laptop story in October 2020.

During a “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference at the University of Chicago last week, a University of Chicago freshman and journalist from the Chicago Thinker questioned Stelter about many of the network’s recent bias-related fumbles.

“They push the Russian collusion hoax, they push the Jussie Smollett hoax, they smear Justice Kavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist. And yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation,” the student, Christopher Phillips, said.

He asked why “all the mistakes of the mainstream media and CNN, in particular, seem to magically all go in one direction.”

Stelter replied that journalists must “admit it” when they “screw up” to “protect democracy.”

Yet Stelter seemed unwilling to admit his own “screwup” on the Hunter Biden story. In October 2020, he claimed the New York Post story was potentially “made up,” “manufactured,” and a “right-wing media” smear.

Given the chance to redeem himself at the conference, he claimed that critics “don’t know how newsrooms work.”

Stelter again showed this unwillingness to dive into the Hunter Biden story when he had the Atlantic’s Anne Applebaum on his show, Reliable Sources, on Sunday and failed to press the reporter on her own comments about the laptop story at the “disinformation” conference.

College freshman and Chicago Thinker journalist Daniel Schmidt asked Applebaum at the conference if she believes the media acted “inappropriately when they instantly dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.”

“My problem with Hunter Biden’s laptop is, I think, totally irrelevant. I mean, it’s not whether it’s disinformation,” said Applebaum, who focuses much of her journalism on calling out corruption in foreign countries. “I mean, I didn’t think Hunter Biden’s business relationships have anything to do with who should be president of the United States. So, I don’t find it to be interesting. I mean, that would be my problem with that as a major news story.”

However, while Applebaum claims the younger Biden’s business relationships don’t have anything to do with the president, one infamous email purportedly detailed a business arrangement between a Chinese company and the Biden family.

Tony Bobulinski, who is listed as a recipient of the email first published by the New York Post, offered further detail last year in a statement to Fox News on the correspondence in October 2020, which references a proposed equity split: “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”

“The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much-publicized May 13, 2017, email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” said Bobulinski, who says he was brought on as CEO of Sinohawk Holdings by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar, the sender of the email.

Sinohawk “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family,” he said.

On Sunday’s episode of Reliable Sources, Stelter avoided both his and Applebaum’s comments from the conference.

After initially dismissing the report about the data recovered from Hunter Biden’s laptop left with a Delaware repair shop, the mainstream media have recently gotten on board with the story. The New York Times has authenticated key files from the laptop, as has the Washington Post.

Other outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, have reported that a federal tax probe into the younger Biden is “gaining momentum,” with prosecutors reportedly investigating his sources of foreign income.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Political opponents of former President Donald J. Trump spent all four years of his administration complaining about the amount of taxpayer money spent to have the United States Secret Service protect his adult children.

Now comes word that the Secret Service is renting a $30,000-a-month Malibu mansion to protect Hunter Biden, the adult son of President Joe Biden.

“Hunter Biden, President Biden’s remaining son, is living in a rented four-bedroom “resort-style” home in Malibu, California, and the nearest property his Secret Service detail could secure was a $30,000-a-month six-bedroom mansion with ocean views and a ‘castle-like tower to the master retreat with wet bar,’ ABC News reports, citing the mansion’s listing and sources familiar with the matter.

“That’s ‘the cost of doing business for the Secret Service,’ former agent Don Mihalek told ABC News. ‘Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value,’ he added. ‘The Service has had to do this in past administrations, and unfortunately, the housing market right now has driven the prices.’

But one government watchdog sees it differently. According to Craig Holman at the progressive good-government group Public Citizen, ‘Hunter should recognize the exorbitant cost of his own protection in the exclusive Malibu neighborhood, and cooperate with the Secret Service to bring down the expenses.’

(RepublicanWire.org) – The New York Times admitted that the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” is authentic, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki completely dodged questions on the topic during Thursday’s press briefing.

The New York Times admitted in a Thursday article that Biden’s laptop was indeed authentic, more than a year after many Democrats and much of the media dismissed the New York Post’s reporting as Russian disinformation. Both President Joe Biden and Psaki herself stated at the time that the laptop did not truly belong to Biden and was the product of Russian efforts.

Psaki dodged questions from multiple reporters on the topic, using nearly the same line each time.

“The New York Times has authenticated emails that appear to have come from a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden in Delaware,” a reporter began. “The president previously said that the New York Post story about this was a bunch of garbage and that it was a Russian plant. Does he stand by that assessment?”

“I’d point you to the Department of Justice and also to Hunter Biden’s representatives. He doesn’t work in the government,” Psaki responded quickly.

Another reporter brought up the issue again later on, this time highlighting Psaki’s own past dismissal of the laptop.

“You in October 2020 dismissed [the laptop], dismissed it as Russian disinformation. Do you stand by that assessment?” a reporter asked.

“I’d point you to the Department of Justice and Hunter Biden’s representatives,” Psaki responded. “I’m a spokesperson for the United States. He doesn’t work for the United States.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Lunden Roberts, 30, joins a growing list of former business partners and associates who have been subpoenaed to give evidence in the Department of Justice’s secretive three-year probe into Hunter’s murky financial affairs.

As well as having a three-year-old daughter with the President’s son, whom he refuses to publicly acknowledge, Roberts spent more than a year working in a junior position at his investment firm, Rosemont Seneca.

She also chased Hunter through the courts for 10 months after he claimed in 2019 that he was too poor to pay child support despite living in a $12,000-per-month Hollywood rental and driving a Porsche.

Roberts gave evidence at a federal courthouse in Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware for several hours on Tuesday morning. Details of grand jury testimony remain secret and the single mom declined to speak about the case with a DailyMail.com reporter as she left.

Scandal-plagued Hunter claimed in his 2021 memoir that he had ‘no recollection’ of Roberts, nor the ‘encounter’ that led to the birth of their daughter, Navy Joan, in 2018.

And he has never mentioned the little girl’s name in public despite paying her mom a reported $2.5 million settlement after a court-ordered DNA test proved he was the dad.

DailyMail.com revealed last year that Hunter, 52, not only had an affair with Roberts, he once hired her to work at Rosemont Seneca, his Washington, D. C.-based investment firm that now finds itself in the crosshairs of the federal inquiry.

Rosemont Seneca was one of a handful of companies listed in a May 2019 grand jury subpoena that ordered JP Morgan Chase to hand over records of transactions between Hunter’s various ventures and the Bank of China for the previous five years.

It also asked for similar ‘records, documents and accounts’ related to James Biden, the President’s brother, and Hunter’s former business partners Eric Schwerin and Devon Archer, both founding partners at Rosemont Seneca.

Archer’s attorney, Matthew Schwartz, confirmed that his client had ‘cooperated completely’ with the DOJ after the subpoena was leaked online last month by conservative research group Marco Polo.

The document offered the first real clues as to the specifics of Delaware U. S. Attorney David Weiss’s probe, which was launched in late 2018 but controversially kept under wraps until weeks after the 2020 Presidential election, supposedly to avoid becoming a campaign issue.

CNN has reported that the investigation is focused on Hunter’s business dealings in China while Politico claims it relates to whether he paid taxes on all of his income.

‘I learned yesterday for the first time that the U. S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,’ Hunter announced in December 2020.

‘I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.’

Roberts was not named in the 2019 subpoena and her involvement remained a secret until she was compelled to attend the J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building in downtown Wilmington.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Yesterday, The New York Times filed a lawsuit that will surely stun you. After claiming the Hunter Biden laptop scandal was “unsubstantiated,” the liberal newspaper has done a complete about-face. They will be suing the State Department for access to emails that mention the President’s embattled son, Hunter.

As you may know, Hunter has been the subject of intense scrutiny. Leading up to the 2020 election, Republican lawmakers and pundits noticed the perplexing business dealings of then Presidential Candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden was then employed by the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Hunter Biden, whose resume would not indicate any aptitude for this kind of work, was pressed considerably by notable Republicans –including Donald Trump himself. Trump mentioned the incident in his notorious call with Ukrainian President Zelensky– partially leading to his first impeachment. We may never know pervasively and fully what went on in Ukraine. But many have speculated it was nothing good. After a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden became available to the public in 2020 through the New York Post, many assumed that the timing of the release and the corresponding emails present on the machine entailed that it was Russian disinformation. Nearly a year later in 2021, Politico vindicated the emails as legitimate. The New York Times was one of the outlets that questioned these emails’ substantive character, a move they have quietly distanced themselves from.

Resultantly, you might expect the New York Times to leave this story behind. However, that has not been the case. It appears the New York Times has enough interest in what really happened to file a lawsuit against the State Department. The jurisdiction of this lawsuit is over emails that make mention of Hunter Biden.

As Politico reports, the lawsuit covers emails sent by Embassy officials in Romania during the period covering 2015 to 2019. The request also concerns Hunter’s former business compatriot Tony Bobulinksi. Former Trump Lawyer and New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani is also mentioned in the request. The New York Times is utilizing the Freedom of Information Act as the basis of their inquiry. They are suing the State Department over a perceived delay in releasing these files, which they requested back in December of 2021, with an estimated date of reception of April 15, 2023.

It remains to be seen what the inquiry will reveal. While the motives of the request are not completely clear, the American public will surely be interested in the findings.

(RepublicanWire.org) – As recently as March 2017, Hunter Biden’s private equity firm held a stake in a company run by a Chinese executive with ties to officials at some of the highest levels of the Communist Party of China, according to emails reviewed by FOX Business.

Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner, Eric Schwerin, sent him an email in March 2017 breaking down the ownership interests of Rosemont Seneca Advisors, which included a 5% stake in Harves Amusement Parks and ownership in Harves Sports and Entertainment.

Biden’s introduction to the Harves Group came about two years earlier, when Francis Person, who served as an adviser to then-Vice President Biden from 2009 to 2014 and was a “special assistant” to Biden in the Senate, sent an email to Hunter Biden in July 2015 inviting him to China the following month to meet his business partner, Bo Zhang, and his family. 

“Bo Zhang and his family would host us. They are a great family with great respect and relationships in China. Bo graduated from American Univ and is in his late 20’s, and his parents own Harves Century Group of Shenyang – which is a top tier private chinese real estate development firm,” Person wrote. “His mom is actually the Chairman of the company, which is unique in China. They are very private, and wouldn’t tell anyone about you coming. Bo’s father-in-law is actually the Governor of Hainan (Chinese Hawaii), which he doesn’t advertise at all.”

Harves Century Group, which has backing from the state-owned China Development Bank, is headquartered in Shenyang, China, and is the parent company of multiple U.S.-based Harves affiliates, including Harves Investment Group (HIG), Harves Global Entertainment, and Harves Sports. Harves Century’s website says the chairwoman is Jenglan Shao, which is revealed to be Zhang’s mother according to Person’s 2015 email to Hunter Biden. It is unclear what her background is or whether she is an American citizen, but her name comes up on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website as a maxed-out donor to Person’s failed 2016 campaign against then-Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C. Zhang also was a maxed-out donor to Person’s campaign. Schwerin and Hunter Biden both donated $2,700. 

Person’s email went on to say that Zhang is “being groomed to take over his family’s dynasty” and that the trip wasn’t about selling Biden on anything, but more about “grow[ing] that relationship,” adding that “there will be plenty of big things that come down the road that we can work on.” Person added that Harves was partnering with NBA stars Magic Johnson and LeBron James in 2016 to “host an NBA Global Game in China.”

The longtime Biden aide, who traveled with Vice President Biden to 49 of the 50 countries he visited through mid-2014, including China, and was described by then-second lady Jill Biden as “like a son to Joe and me” and someone who “will always be a part of our family,” was tapped to be the president of Harves in January 2015, less than six months after he left the White House. According to Linkedin, Person “[h]elped guide the formation of the Harves Group headquartered in Washington DC, serving as the U.S. affiliate of Harves [Century Group].”

One of the emails was from Schwerin to Zhang, Biden, Person, an assistant, and Tara Greco, a former director of communications for the union that represents NBA players. The April 2016 email, which was directed at Zhang, said Greco had learned that the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) had a deal with the NBA to “build NBA branded stadiums around China,” but said it appeared the project was “stalled” after only two stadiums were built, prompting Schwerin to say, “If Liaoning can get one of these stadiums that would be a big help in your efforts to get more NBA related content in Liaoning.” After listing off several questions he had for Zhang, Schwerin concluded the email by saying they could discuss when they met the following week.

In November 2020, a joint press release announced that Harves was partnering with NBA China, a company that was formed in 2008 to conduct the NBA’s business throughout China and develop NBA-themed entertainment centers. Zhang was quoted in the press release as saying, the centers “furthers our mission to provide best-in-class global entertainment experiences to local populations.” In May of this year, the eastern city of Suzhou is expected to open its first experience center. Zhang said, “We hope to grow it into a landmark project in the sports industry.”

“As part of the partnership, Harves, plans to open six NBA-themed entertainment centers across China, with the first opening by 2022,” the press release said. “These entertainment centers will bring together fans and families to experience the excitement of the NBA through a variety of new activities and offerings, including cutting-edge, interactive digital games, NBA-themed dining and more.”

In addition to being the co-founder and CEO of Harves Global Entertainment, Person is the co-founder and CEO of DreamCube Innovations, a company that Fast Company described as an “enticing new technology and brand that’s already signed deals with the NBA as well as with the Manchester United soccer club” that is set up “across China.”

“It’s humbling to work with incredibly creative, talented, and passionate people to push technology and immersive experiences to another level,” Person wrote on his Facebook, sharing the Fast Company article. “We’re living through tough times, but our future is lined with infinite possibilities.”

FOX Business reached out to Person and Zhang to inquire about the relationship between Harves and the Chinese government and whether they have played a role in approving any of their business contracts along with a series of other questions, but neither of them responded. In Person’s 2015 email to Hunter Biden, he revealed that Zhang’s father-in-law was the governor of Hainan at the time. A timeline shows that Liu Cigui was the governor in 2015 and according to The Diplomat, Cigui was considered to be a “Xi loyalist.” 

Cigui went straight to public service at the age of 20 going “through various levels of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organs in Fujian, first via the Communist Youth League and then as spatial party secretaries, eventually of prefecture-level Putian, a coastal city of 2 million along the Xiamen-Quanzhou-Putian-Fuzhou coastal axis,” The Diplomat reported. According to China Vitae, Cigui has been a member of the CCP Central Committee, which is the party’s “highest organ of authority,” since 2012. Additionally, Liu was a member of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection from 2012 to 2017, which, according to The Washington Post, is “a secretive, powerful agency in charge of investigating the Communist Party’s own members for corruption,” was “the main weapon in Xi Jinping’s rapid consolidation of power as China’s new leader.”

Another tie that Zhang has to the CCP was revealed in a December 2013 Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) filing with the Justice Department, listing Zhang as the “Foreign Principal.” 

“Although the Foreign Principal is a private individual, because of his relationship with a Chinese Government Official, Liu Guoqiang, a Vice Chairman Liaoning Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Conservative [sic] Conference (CPPCC) People’s Republic of China, the foreign principal proposes to seek assistance from the Registrant [Patton Boggs LLP] to provide Congressional outreach on behalf of the Vice Chairman in relation to setting up meetings with Congressional officials, when the Vice Chairman and his delegation visit the United States which is expected to occur in 2014,” the filing reads.

According to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, the CPPCC is a “critical coordinating body that brings together representatives of China’s other interest groups and is led by a member of China’s highest-level decision-making authority, the CCP’s Politburo Standing Committee.” The Diplomat reports that the CPPCC is a “key part” of China’s “United Front” work and that it is “designed to liaise with non-Communist Party members – and ultimately see them work with the CCP to advance its interests” and target prominent figures like athletes, businesspeople, and politicians.

Hunter Biden’s attorney and Schwerin did not respond to a series of questions or say whether Hunter still had a stake in Harves.

The hunter Biden story gets worse and worse. Sure, he was seen smoking crack with hookers. Sure, it helped reveal that Joe and Jill Biden both have problems with addiction. But President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani says that there was much more on Hunter Biden’s hard drive. For instance, the FBI refused to take Hunter Biden’s child porn collection.

Giuliani, who was targeted by Joe Biden’s Justice Department in April in an apparent revenge attempt to punish the “9/11 Mayor” for revealing damaging information related to the Biden family’s unethical dealings with the Ukraine. Giuliani’s office was raided, with Biden thugs stealing his records and devices. One piece of information was that Biden’s family pushed the Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating Biden’s crack addict son.

“The only incriminating thing in my house are the Hunter Biden hard drives, and they wouldn’t take them,” Giuliani said in an interview with Mike Huckabee. “I mean, I offered them the incriminating evidence here. I’ve got plenty of crimes for you, and the FBI said, ‘No, no, no, we don’t want that.”

“They didn’t take the laptops, right?” Huckabee asked.

“It contains one crime after another, including child pornography,” Giuliani replied. This is damning. It’s unclear how much child porn is on the hard drive, but it’s terrifying that the DOJ would raid Giuliani’s office then refuse to take evidence of actual crimes.

Biden so far has been silent about this — but wouldn’t you be, if your crack addict son was also revealed to be a sick pervert who preys on children? Watch the interview below:

Addiction is a problem in America. About 21 million Americans are addicted to something, yet only 10 percent get treatment. Drug overdoses are currently triple what they were in 1990. Addiction is a problem that costs the U.S. Government an estimated $600 billion a year. While we know that Hunter Biden suffers from addiction to crack and other drugs, it might surprise you that Joe does as well. New bombshell Hunter Biden texts reveal Joe Biden admitting his battle with addiction.

Addiction is a problem that plagues the Biden family. In fact, a total of five members have been in rehab, including Biden’s children Hunter and Ashley, his brother Frank, his niece Caroline, and his late son Beau’s widow (and Hunter’s former lover) Hallie. Some were ordered to attend rehab by a judge.

But what about Joe and Jill Biden? Recently-leaked texts reveal that Biden and Jill have also struggled with addiction.

“You’ve always made me proud you got the disease from mommy and me but you are strong and courageous with so much more to give,” Biden writes in texts to Hunter.

It’s clear that Joe Biden loves his son, but it’s interesting that he and so much of his family suffered with drug and alcohol addiction at the same time as Biden was criticizing George Bush’s war on drugs as not being harsh enough. It’s also interesting that Democrats repeatedly accused President Trump of abusing Adderall and cocaine while Joe and Jill Biden have apparently had their own issues with drugs.

Now, Americans have questions. When did Biden struggle with addiction? Is it a current issue? Does his drug or alcohol abuse have an impact on his ability to lead? Biden has shown signs of cognitive decline for just some time. Does his addiction issue factor into this? We deserve answers.

Hunter Biden loves crack. The son of the President was recently heard in uncovered audio admitting to a friend that he smoked it with infamous DC mayor Marion Barry. Recently, Hunter Biden has been a subject of controversy after videos of him smoking crack and having sex were found on his laptop.

Democrats and the media say it’s no big deal and Joe Biden doesn’t seem remotely bothered. Now, the Gateway Pundit has obtained new audio that sheds light on Hunter Biden’s crack addiction — specifically that he smoked it with Marion Barry:

Hunter Biden:  “You know what? I actually smoked crack with Marion Barry, I swear to F–king god.”

Unidentified man: “Jesus.”

Hunter Biden: “Over in Georgetown he used to go to a place right next the guards, and I was a sophomore I guess, do you know when that happened? He could come and drink, I mean late-late… and I would go to the bathroom… but anyway.”

Unidentified man: “Huh?”

The recording was provided by  former co-host of Steve Bannon’s War Room Jack Maxey, who had a copy of Hunter’s infamous hard drive.

“At this point I am just trying to save the country,” Maxey says. “It needs to be exposed because this is what these intel guys are covering up to stay in business with the Chinese Community Party.”

“It must be nice to be a Biden because the FBI had the laptop and this very evidence. The Intel agencies had it. Biden should have been stopped before the Democrat Primary. Bernie Sanders people got screwed over again,” Maxey  says. “Trump shouldn’t have been impeached, Biden should not have been called the winner of the election, and making these things  from the laptop public, back then, would have stopped all of those things from happening.”

Joe Biden and the Democrats can try to ignore this, but we won’t.
