(RepublicanWire.org) – Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said that Republicans should focus on President Biden, not his son Hunter Biden, saying the president “is the Godfather.”

On the most recent episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” the Texas Republican said his party needs to turn its attention to President Biden in their investigations, and not focus on his embattled son.

“The focus needs to be on Joe Biden, this is not about Hunter Biden, any more than if you’re going after the mafia and you catch some low-level enforcer, or you’re going after a drug cartel and you catch some mule who swallowed balloons full of heroin,” Cruz said.

“It’s not about the poor schlub who got caught. It’s about the boss,” the senator continued.

“It’s about the big guy. It’s about the Godfather, Joe Biden is the Godfather. He is the one who ultimately is profiting on this corruption,” Cruz said. “He is the one who is abusing official authority to further the criminal activity of his family members. And that’s why this is an issue of public corruption.”

Cruz said the Department of Justice under Biden “desperately” wants “to keep this on,” pointing to the DOJ’s handling of Hunter’s “drug problem.”

“You know what, we wouldn’t be talking about it if it was just one deeply troubled soul,” Cruz continued. “The reason we should talk about it, and the reason why the corporate media and the Democrats desperately don’t want to talk about it, is there is now growing evidence of corruption from Joe Biden himself, when he was vice president of the United States.

“And now when he’s president of the United States, personally enriching himself enriching his family by selling official favors to enemies, hostile foreign governments — that is an issue of highest importance,” he asserted.

Cruz’s comments come as Republicans are geared up to take control of the House in January, with the GOP leadership promising to launch several investigations, including into the Bidens.

The White House is already playing defense against the GOP investigations, with the administration claiming Republicans were pushing “long-debunked conspiracy theories” in their allegations of Biden having a hand in his son’s overseas business dealings.

“Instead of working with President Biden to address issues important to the American people, like lower costs, congressional Republicans’ top priority is to go after President Biden with politically motivated attacks chock full of long-debunked conspiracy theories,” Ian Sams, spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s office, said last week. 

“President Biden is not going to let these political attacks distract him from focusing on Americans’ priorities, and we hope congressional Republicans will join us in tackling them instead of wasting time and resources on political revenge,” Sams added.

(RepublicanWire.org) – It seemed bad enough for Democrats that Hunter Biden was traveling the world while collecting checks because of his father’s name, particularly when those checks came from Red Chinese state companies. Whether Joe Biden was involved or not, and the “Big Guy” email makes many think he was, it’s still very bad optics for the Democrats.

Well, things just got worse for them. Now House Republicans have dragged Obama into it, so the former president is potentially implicated in the scandal that seems to get worse by the day.

News on that comes from Fox, which reports that Republican lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee wrote a letter demanding that Hunter and his Obama ties be investigated.

First, the lawmakers described why Hunter’s activities, particularly those in Eastern Europe, are all the more relevant now, saying:

On March 15, 2022, the Russian government announced sanctions on President Biden,
members of the Biden Administration, Hillary Clinton, and the President’s son, Hunter Biden. While “it’s unlikely many top Democratic officials will be affected by those measures[,]” it is the inclusion of Hunter Biden—decidedly not a “Democratic official”—that raises serious questions. The nation’s adversaries apparently see the President’s son as a pressure point to exploit. Additionally, his inclusion on the list is the latest evidence that Hunter Biden has indeed engaged in business schemes with our adversaries. Therefore, we request information the White House Counsel’s Office (WHCO) possesses regarding Hunter Biden’s dealings in Russia and Ukraine.

The Russian government’s sanctioning of Hunter Biden and, notably, none of the other Biden children, raises questions about his connections to Russia. The payment of $3.5 million to Hunter Biden or a company associated with him by Elena Baturina, a Russian businesswoman and former wife of former Mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov, has raised the attention of the United States Senate and demonstrates Hunter Biden’s previous dealings with the Russian political class. Hunter Biden’s connections throughout the Russian sphere of influence have now become especially relevant in the fast-moving and developing Russian war in Ukraine. If the Russian government is attempting to influence American policy in Ukraine by exploiting Hunter Biden’s connection with his father—the President of the United States—the American people deserve to know it.

But we’ve heard all that before: most everyone knows, at this point, that Hunter was collecting checks from Eastern Europe, most infamously the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow and as a member of the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company.

So it was what came later in the letter that was shocking. The GOP House then, dragged the Obama White House into the controversy, saying:

Hunter Biden’s dealings have not gone unnoticed, and a Department of Justice (DOJ) probe begun under the Obama Administration has expanded to include a wide variety of potential violations and crimes. According to the New York Times, Hunter Biden is currently under investigation by DOJ for possible violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act and possible criminal tax evasion and money laundering.

That’s right, the DOJ probe didn’t begin under Trump. The probe into what Hunter was up to, though it might have expanded since Obama began it, started in the Obama White House.

What makes that all the more shocking is that the GOP members of the House Oversight Committee evidently thought there was a “there” there, as the Epoch Times reports that they demanded that “they be given access to any and all communication records between Hunter and the Obama White House.”

The representatives also hit Biden for his potential lies about Hunter’s activities, saying:

While then-Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden stated that “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” this appears not to be true. The evidence is now clear that not only did Joe Biden talk to his son about his overseas business dealings, but he also met with his son’s associates. The misleading statements by President Biden are even more troubling now that Russia has singled out Hunter Biden on its sanctions list instead of any of the other Biden children. 

So how was Obama involved? Perhaps he was on the right side of the issue, having presided over the beginning of the DOJ probe into what Hunter Biden was up to. But, the demand that communications between Hunter and Obama be turned over hints that the GOP Representatives on the House Oversight Committee think something bigger might be at play.

(RepublicanWire.org) – The People’s Republic of China has always been an intimidating place.  What would it mean for America if we were under The Chinese government’s control?  They would control our words, behaviors, institutions,  everything about us. They would mold us to please the dictatorship in Beijing. 

The American billionaires who have collaborated with Communist China to amass great wealth are betraying their country by prioritizing money over national security.

Even our president’s own son has gotten rich from business deals in China.

Despite the extraordinary consequences of defeat, America’s system is gradually drifting into a national security state that will clearly lose its war with Communist China.

The Pentagon and intelligence communities under Biden’s administration are distracted, focusing on creating a woke force rather than one capable of winning wars, and it is further weakening America.

The Chinese Communist Party’s system of government is a daunting challenge for any country that wants to become the world’s dominant superpower. If we do not reevaluate our capabilities and make an effort on this scale, then it may be too late before anyone knows what has happened!

Many people have gone to twitter to express their concern with our current administration and how vulnerable we are to potential threats.

The United States needs a full-blown investigation into the requirements for victory over China – and we must be willing to undertake every reform possible in order to maintain our safety, freedom and prosperity.
