Multimillionaire Joe Biden Scolds Politicians for Getting Rich: ‘You Shouldn’t Make Money While You’re in Office’

Kyle Becker

President Joe Biden, also known as “the Big Guy” to his scandal-plagued son Hunter, stumbled his way through a Tuesday afternoon address to make the incredible claim he doesn’t believe politicians should get rich in office. Watch:

The War in Ukraine is going to continue to take it toll on the world economy,” Biden said. “It’s going to take it his toll on energy, and it’s going to take its toll relative to food.”

“When I was running for office, you heard it a thousand times from me, that we’re going build an economy me around you,” he continued. “I’m so tired of trickle down economics. And I never found that that trickled down on top of my head very much.”

“I was listed… I had the great pleasure of being listed as the poorest man in Congress for 36 years,” he went on. “I still was making a hell a lot more money than anybody else because I was getting a senator’s salary, no kidding.”

“I didn’t think you should make money while you’re in office,” he claimed.

“But anyway, the point of it is this,” he added. “An awful lot of people are hurting. It makes a big difference. Makes a big difference. The cost of a dozen eggs cost of a gallon of gasoline. It matters. It matters.”

“So I concluded when I ran this last time that we’re going to build this economy from the bottom up in the middle out, because when that happens, everybody does well,” he went on. “The wealthy do very well and the poor have a ladder up and the middle class has a little bit of breathing room.”

Then Biden told one of those hard-to-believe anecdotes that he is so fond of telling when he rambles off-script.

“I grew up in a household where we lived in a split level, home, three bedrooms, four kids, mom, and dad, and grandpa would live with us,” he said. “And I remember one night you could, you know, the walls were kind of thin here. My dad was restless next morning. When he went to work, I asked mom, what was the problem? She said, he just noticed his company just said, no more, not going to, not going to cover health insurance anymore. It matters. These things matter to people. They matter to ordinary people.”

Beyond the Biden folktales, he is has gotten incredibly rich during his nearly 50 years on the public till. Forbes notes that “Joe Biden earned $17.3 million over the four years he was out of office, but his net worth is only an estimated $8 million.”

“On the day America’s first billionaire president took office, ‘middle class’ Joe Biden boarded the Amtrak out of Washington D.C.’s Union Station, bound for Delaware with the kind of modest fortune you might expect from someone who had spent his adult life as an elected official: $2.5 million, mostly composed of pensions and real estate,” Forbes said. “But Biden was about to cash in. By the end of 2017, he and his wife Jill had earned $11.1 million. They raked in $4.6 million the next year, followed by $1 million in 2019 and $630,000 in 2020.”

“The story of how Biden became a wealthy man in the wake of his vice presidency, leveraging his fame to sell books and deliver speeches, has been told many times,” Forbes went on. “But a closer look at the math prompts a question that hasn’t been asked: Why isn’t Biden even richer? If someone starts with a $2.5 million net worth and earns $17.3 million while the markets are raging, you’d expect him to be worth more than $8 million. So what happened to Biden’s money? Well, $7 million of it covered taxes, another $1.3 million went to charity, $180,000 paid for household staff and an estimated $80,000 went toward interest on mortgages. Take those items out, though, and you’re still a few million above Biden’s estimated net worth.”

“There’s a chance that Biden, who shares his fortune with his wife Jill, gave some to other family members,” the report added. “Or perhaps he just spent it all. In order to be worth $8 million—as an analysis of Biden’s financial disclosure reports, property records and career earnings suggest he is—the president would have had to blow an average of roughly some $2,000 per day over the four years he was out of office.”

The White House did not respond to Forbes’ multiple requests for comment about Joe Biden’s money.

Town & Country has also reported on the real estate holdings of Joe Biden.

“Biden began buying homes—especially those that were outside his budget—in his twenties, taking out multiple mortgages and receiving loans against life insurance policies,” Town & Country reported. “His net worth was often in the negatives—in 2007, he was ranked the least wealthy senator.”

“Today, the 78-year-old president-elect is hardly middle class anymore,” the report added. “According to a 2019 Forbes estimate, Biden and his wife Jill are worth $9 million, much of that accrued from speaking fees and book deals that came pouring in after his vice presidency. About $4 million of that worth is in his real estate. And while they are officially moving into America’s grandest house today, the White House joins an already impressive group of stately digs owned by the President and First Lady.”

Town & Country then listed impressive estates in Greenville, Delaware; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; and McLean, Virginia.

The Daily Mail, one of the major publications that has analyzed Hunter Biden’s laptop firsthand, has detailed how the former senator’s and vice president’s connections was leveraged to make his family a large fortune.

“Multiple associates of Joe Biden called him the ‘big guy’ in emails – the latest in a mountain of evidence that the president was involved in his son’s business dealings,” the Daily Mail noted.

But emails and documents on Hunter’s laptop show Joe Biden:

  • Was referenced under the nickname ‘big guy’ as a potential 10% owner in Hunter’s joint venture with Chinese oil giant CEFC, in an email by Hunter’s partner in the deal
  • Met with Hunter’s foreign business associates at a DC restaurant, despite initial White House denials
  • At his son’s behest, met with an executive from the allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, where Hunter had a $1 million-per-year board seat
  • Met with Hunter and his Mexican billionaire business partners in the Vice President’s official residence
  • Flew Hunter and his business partner – a top political donor – on Air Force 2 to Mexico for a business meeting with those same Mexican billionaires 
  • Was issued keys for Hunter’s proposed office to be shared with his Chinese business partners – though Hunter never picked the keys up according to the office manager
  • Met with Hunter’s now-jailed business partner Devon Archer, who was then appointed a Burisma board member alongside Hunter the same month Joe visited Ukraine as VP, according to White House visitor logs
  • Shared a bank account with Hunter and paid each other’s bills 
  • Spoke with former FBI director Louis Freeh who at the time was plotting establishing a DC consultancy with Hunter and Joe catering to foreign criminals
  • Had Hunter’s business partner file his taxes
  • Wrote a college recommendation letter for the son of Hunter’s Chinese business partner, Jonathan Li

Joe Biden might claim that he doesn’t believe that public officials should get rich “while in office,” but the track record of “middle class Joe” shows that he has not only made millions in his five decades in office, but he has made an even bigger fortune for his family through institutionalized corruption.

Corrupt Andrew Cuomo Sues New York Ethics Committee to Stop Them From Seizing Over $5 Million in Ill-Gotten Gains

100% Fed Up
Apr 2, 2022

Cuomo’s Covid Era-Memoir Allegedly Used State Resources for Production and Promotion

New York’s disgraced Former Governor filed a lawsuit Friday in order to stop the New York Ethics Committee from seizing over $5 million in profits from his Covid-Era memoir, which allegedly used state resources for its production and promotion. These ill gotten gains are only the latest in a line of scandals which the corrupt former governor has been caught up in.

From the Daily Mail:

In the lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Albany, Cuomo accused the Joint Commission on Public Ethics, JCOPE, of violating his constitutional rights and showing ‘extraordinary bias against him.’

In December, JCOPE ordered Cuomo to turn over money from his book ‘American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.’

Cuomo’s camp decried the order and promised a legal fight.

Cuomo’s memoir became the subject of an investigation from the New York attorney general’s office and JCOPE last year over claims he’d used state resources to write it.

While the state of New York works to claim the $5 million manuscript of his memoir, Cuomo has sued them in what is sure to become a tooth and nail legal battle to preserve his ill gotten gains.

Cuomo’s COVID-19 Memoir

On top of allegedly siphoning state money to fund a profitable vanity project, in the recent past he has also been accused of sexually harassing multiple women, and his COVID-19 policies led to the deaths of numerous elderly people in New York nursing homes.

Cuomo’s corruption and penchant for lawsuits are shared by his brother, former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who is seeking $125 million from CNN as well.

Your Tax Dollars at Work: Ukrainian Officials Keep Getting Caught Fleeing Country with Suitcases Full of Cash and Euros

Jim Hoft
March 21st, 202

The US Senate passed a bipartisan $1.5 trillion bill on March 10th that included $13.6 billion in aid to Ukraine.

Chuck Schumer touted the aid to Ukraine and pointed to it as a pressing reason for the Senate to quickly pass the massive $1.5 trillion spending bill. This was the same week that inflation hit 7.9% in the US — the highest inflation rate in 40 years.

So where is the money going? Does anyone know? Does anyone care?

Here’s one answer.

And she’s not the only one.

Another Ukrainian diplomat tried to flee Ukraine with 68,000€, $140,000, 12kg gold, 13.8kg gold jewelry and a large number of cigarettes.

Speaker Robin Vos ADMITS Widespread Fraud Occurred In Wisconsin But Says Legislature Cannot Decertify [VIDEO]

Patty McMurray 
March 16th, 2022

On March 3, only two days after former WI Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman and Thomas More Lawyer Erick Kaardal testified before the WI Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections, they appeared on a podcast with 100 Percent Fed Up’s Patty McMurray and the Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft where they discussed the findings of Justice Gableman’s final report on potential voter fraud in the 2020 election.

The 100 Percent Fed Up – Gateway Pundit podcast with Justice Gableman and Erick Kaardal can be seen here:

Justice Gableman was hired by WI State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) to investigate the November 2020 election. Biden got nearly 21,000 more votes in Wisconsin, a state that Donald Trump won in 2016.

As part of his testimony, Special Counsel Michael Gableman dropped a bombshell when he explained how, in Chapter 1 of their report, the CTCL’s (Center for Tech and Civic Life) “$8.8 million Zuckerberg planned grant” to Wisconsin’s top five Democratic stronghold cities (Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee, Madison, and Green Bay) used in the November 2020 election “facially violates the Wisconsin law prohibiting election bribery.”

Thomas More Lawyer Erick Kaardal interviewed nursing home patients and members of their families who voted in the November 2020 election to show how the election was stolen in several ways in Wisconsin.

Here is a sampling of Mr. Kaardal’s interviews:

Now, almost two weeks after Justice Gableman and Erick Kaardal testified in front of the WI Election Assembly, Republican (RINO) Speaker Robin Vos admits that widespread voter fraud took place in Wisconsin. Vos made the statement to the press after attending a closed-door meeting with a group of concerned WI residents advocating for decertification of the November election, including a GOP candidate for governor and State Rep. Timothy Ramthun (R) this afternoon.

Even though Justice Gableman explained during his testimony that the WI legislature HAS the power to decertify the November 2020 election, Speaker Vos claims the legislature does NOT have the power to take this action.

Phil Kline of Thomas More’s Amistad Project interviewed Wisconsin clerk Linda Sinkula on September 27, 2021, where she describes learning from an election worker that Democrat operatives were registering voters in nursing homes, including those who don’t normally vote. Under Wisconsin law, bipartisan teams of Special Voting Deputies are required to register and assist nursing home residents with absentee ballots.

Joe Crushes American Energy While Hunter Gets Rich From Chinese Fossil Fuels

KanekoaTheGreat
March 14th, 2022

Joe Biden fights climate change in the United States, while his son’s Chinese private equity fund holds investments in Chinese oil giant, Sinopec, which creates more CO2 emissions than all of Canada.

Hunter Biden has continued to profit from Chinese-government owned oil, gas, and coal companies through his 10% equity stake in Bohai Harvest RST, while his father, Joe Biden, has canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline, banned new drilling for oil and gas on federal lands, and declared war on Americans at the gas pump because of climate change.

Bohai Harvest RST, founded in 2013 and controlled by the Chinese-government owned Bank of China, invested $1 billion in 2015 in the Chinese-state owned China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec Group), the world’s largest oil and gas conglomerate.

In 2020, one of Sinopec Group’s subsidiaries, China Petroleum & Chemical, created more carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than the entire nation of Canada, which itself produced the eleventh most CO2 emissions among all nations.

In other words, while Joe Biden shut down the Keystone Pipeline XL, which would’ve given the United States 830,000 barrels a day from Canada, his son continued to profit from his investment in the Chinese state-owned oil giant Sinopec Group, which creates more carbon dioxide emissions than the entire nation of Canada.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden Firm Rosemont Seneca Invested in Firm Tied to Ukrainian Biolabs

Joe Hoft
March 10th, 2022

Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca provided capital for the firms behind the creation of Biolabs in Ukraine.  

We heard on Tuesday from the US State Department that there were US Biolabs in Ukraine. Then on Wednesday the Biden regime backtracked and insisted there were no US-funded Biolabs in Ukraine.

Why the sudden confusing messaging from the Biden gang?  Especially when there are documents that prove the US was funding several of the Biolabs they set up in Ukraine to study potentially dangerous pathogens.

It may be because Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca was funding the firms involved in the building of these labs in Ukraine and they felt this was not something they wanted the American people to know.

InfoWars put together an excellent article with connections between Hunter Biden and the firm Metabiota, which was involved in the creation of Biolabs in Ukraine.

The Gateway Pundit identified through the Wayback Machine that Rosemont Seneca provided capital (invested in) Metabiota as noted on the firm’s website back in 2014.

It is listed as “Our Team’s Investments” on the Rosemont Senaca webpage.

We also located a number of documents from the Wayback Machine (meaning they have been since deleted off the Internet) that show the Department of Defense investing in the creation of Biolabs in Ukraine with the help of firm Black & Veatch.

Here is a sample of one of the documents located.  (We’ve located nearly a dozen of these documents.)

Metabiota publicized its relationship with Black & Veach in 2018:

Today, Metabiota, the pioneer in epidemic risk modeling, announced it has been awarded a subcontract from Black & Veatch (B&V) to support the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s (DTRA) Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) in Iraq under the Biological Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (BTRIC). Metabiota has also partnered with B&V on DTRA’s recently awarded Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (CTRIC) III with an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract ceiling of $970M.

The US State Department admitted to having Biolabs in Ukraine on Tuesday in front of the US Senate.  Then yesterday the Biden White House claimed these Biolabs in Ukraine were not biological weapons labs.

REVEALED: Matt Schlapp’s CPAC Took Six-Figure ‘Social Action’ Donation from Soros-Linked ‘Dark Money’ Network

Raheem J. Kassam
March 8th, 2022

The American Conservative Union (ACU) – which hosts the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) – took a six-figure donation from a leading left-wing fund for the purposes of “civil rights, social action, advocacy,” according to the fund’s financial records dated 2020, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal.

The New Venture Fund, whose mission statement revolves around “Race, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Commitment,” issued a cash grant of $183,250 to the ACU, run by Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, in 2020. The fund is known for its work supporting anti-Trump, anti-conservative initiatives.

SCHLAPP’S CASH FROM THE LEFT.

The ACU refused to comment when approached by The National Pulse. The full 990 can be read here.

The New Venture Fund was started in 2006 and ungirds much of the political left’s activities in America today. It’s President, Lee Bodner, is a former managing director of Arabella Advisors, which even the Atlantic magazine described as a “Massive Progressive Dark-Money Group” which has targeted former President Donald Trump, his administration officials, as well as issuing over a billion dollars a year to left-wing groups and astro-turfed political operations. Bodner is also described as building “strategic partnerships with nonprofits, including the Clinton Foundation”.

arabella
PROGRESSIVE DARK MONEY NETWORK

In 2019 the Capital Research Center revealed these left-wing funds are indeed all part of the same network “operating under the aegis of ‘philanthropy.’ Their work concluded: “…this network is housed in and staffed by a for-profit, privately held consultancy called Arabella Advisors, LLC.* Arabella manages four nonprofit entities—the New Venture FundSixteen Thirty FundWindward Fundand Hopewell Fund—each of which shares an address and interlocking officers with Arabella.”

“Arabella’s network often plays host to highly influential groups on the Left. For example, the Democracy Alliance, a network of donors co-founded by billionaire George Soros, has used the New Venture Fund and Sixteen Thirty Fund to host at least eight projects that don’t disclose their original funders”

– Hayden Ludwig, Capital Research Center

The news of Schlapp’s Soros-linked cash comes as the eight-year-long ACU Chairman went to bat for transgender swimmer Lia Thomas. Thomas has dominated against biological female competitors, despite being born a man. Schlapp took to Twitter late Monday night to insist: “No matter what one thinks of Lia’s ability to swim with women her story deserves our compassion. It will be interesting to hear Lia’s pov in 30 years.”

Schlapp was soon taken to task by conservative commentators such as Jenna Ellis, former attorney for President Trump as well as The Blaze’s Allie Stuckey.

MATT SCHLAPP’S “IT’S MA’AM!” MOMENT.

The National Pulse can also reveal that in recent months, the American Conservative Union pulled from its website a letter sent to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) criticizing them for their pro-transgender sports position. The letter was originally widely circulated, but hurriedly pulled down a few months later. It is still available via the Wayback Machine, here.

The letter appears to have been pulled down at roughly the same time Schlapp promoted communications staff Regina Bratton, who called Joe Biden “our last hope” against Donald Trump, and insulted the former President’s intelligence. Bratton has lauded political activists such as Alyssa Milano, the Lincoln Project, Liz Cheney, Meghan McCain, Mitt Romney, The Daily Show, Joy Reid, Amy Klobuchar, and others.

cpac letter
CPAC’S WEBSITE NOW HIDES THEIR NCAA LETTER.

Schlapp – a former White House Director for Political Affairs under President George W. Bush – has come under a mountain of criticism in recent years for turning the once-lauded CPAC into a playing field his political family and their finances. Multiple sources have revealed to The National Pulse they now believe the event to be a “pay for play” scenario, wherein the largest donors and sponsors receive stage-time over the conservative movement’s best and brightest.

Schlapp himself seemed to confirm the matter in his tweets to Jenna Ellis on the matter of transgenderism. Instead of addressing the point, Schlapp callously fired back: “Jenna this is a false controversy. You are upset w @CPAC bc we didn’t invite you to speak.”

In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Schlapp appeared on Fox News to state that veteran Ashli Babbitt – who he misidentified as a 16-year-old – “maybe deserved to be shot”.

“I understand there’s a 16-year-old young woman who was shot. Now maybe she was doing terrible things and deserved to be shot,” Schlapp said. “We’re the party that talks about law and order and respecting cops.”

The ACU failed to respond to multiple comment requests from The National Pulse, dated Feb 23rd and March 8th.

THE BIDENS’ UKRAINIAN BLOOD MONEY – What the U.S. Government and Mainstream Media Hid from the Public

Joe Hoft
February 27th, 2022

Forensic Deep Dive into the Bidens’ Ukrainian Blood Money.  What the U.S. alphabet agencies and Mainstream Media hid from the public.

On June 28, 2018, the Southern District of New York Court (Case 16-CR-371) convicted three individuals for security fraud. Most noteworthy was Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s partner in Rosemont-Seneca-Bohai, LLC (“RSB”). The criminal investigation subpoenas obtained the banking and investment records of RSB documenting security fraud. The RSB financial records further revealed substantial payments from the private Ukrainian energy company known as Burisma Holdings Limited to Devon Archer and Hunter Biden.

Devon Archer and Hunter Biden were appointed to the Ukrainian Burisma board two months after the Coup d’état installed U.S. puppet Petro Poroshenko as Ukraine’s President. Not a mere coincidence since Vice President Joe Biden was Obama’s Ukraine point man. Neither Archer or Biden had expertise in oil and gas nor spoke the language. The RSB records revealed that each received $83,333.33 per month as director fees over two years.

 Ukraine 2014 Coup d’état

After violent events associated with the Maidan revolution protests, Ukraine’s parliament ousted President Viktor Yanukovich in February 2014 and replaced him with Petro Poroshenko. Disposed Yanukovich was an existential threat because his amicable relations with Russia impeded Ukraine from becoming a European member and NATO from expanding to Russia’s border. Assistant U.S. Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, the midwife of Maidan, threatened sanctions against Ukraine’s government if President Viktor Yanukovych remained in office.  (Over 100 people were killed in the protests.)

Assistant  US Assistant Secretary of State for Victoria Nuland handing out cakes to Yanukovych protesters on the Independence Square in Kiev on December 10, 2013.

SDNY Instrument of the Deep State

The Southern District of New York Court (“SDNY”) is the most influential and controversial federal court. The SDNY has a reputation for being an apparatus of the Deep State. Louis Freeh and James Comey, former FBI Directors, served in the SDNY cesspool. The SDNY recently launched a high-profile federal criminal investigation of Rudy Giuliani, while he was serving as Trump’s legal counsel.  At the time, Giuliani was encouraging former Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. This action by the SDNY was a classic Saul Alinsky’s projection technique of false accusations.

Forensic Evidence

Thanks to the criminal case, the public can now review (linked here) the bank and investment account statements (3/2014 – 5/2016) detailing the exorbitant extortion payments funding Archer’s and Biden’s lavish and decadent lifestyle. On the account statements lower left-hand corner, you will note that prosecuting attorneys labeled “FOIA Confidential Treatment Requested.”

RSB was a corporate shell for laundering funds with significant criminal transactions not associated with Burisma director fees flowing through the accounts.

Hunter Biden, at a minimum, was knowledgeable of the criminal transactions and is an unindicted co-conspirator. The mainstream media knew of the cases but was reluctant to publish information on these cases.  

The following are three notable criminal transactions flowing through RSB accounts.

1 Fraudulent Bond Issuances

Devin Archer and co-conspirators engaged in a scheme where the Wakpamni Lake Community Corporation, a Native American tribal entity, issued a series of bonds totaling $60 million for tribal economic development. The bonds lacked a secondary market, were illiquid and sold to Hughes Capital Management passive investors. Archer and Co-Conspirator John Galanis controlled Hughes Capital. A portion of the funds was used for personal expenses, cars, and jewelry.

When pension clients that were clients of RBC learned about the purchase of the Tribal Bonds in their accounts, they demanded the liquidation of the bonds. Because there was no secondary market, $15 million in misappropriated proceeds funds were recycled through the RSB account. RSB purchased the clients’ bonds, creating an illusion of a liquid secondary market.

2 IPO Stock Fraud

Code Rebel Corporation (Nasdaq symbol CDRB), a technology company, went public in May 2015. Burnham Securities, Inc. (“BSI”) was the stock IPO underwriter. RSB deposited the stock certificate of 510,831 shares of the IPO (25.5% ownership), valued at $19.7 million, with Morgan Stanley.

Page 156 – June 2015

In October 2015, Devon Archer used RSB funds to loan the BSI working capital and had a contract to buy BSI’s holding company parent resulting in control over the Code Rebel’s stock market maker.

Page 190 – October 2015

By the end of 2015, Code Rebel reported a net income loss of $3.6 million, with the most significant expense component of $1.2 million for director fees. In May 2016, the company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Nasdaq delisted the company in June 2016 due to insolvency and fraudulent audited financial statements.

Jason Galanis, a co-defendant with Archer in both security scandals, is known as the “New Porn King” after he acquired the nation’s largest payment processor for internet pornography.

3 Chinese Influence Peddling – Bohai Harvest

RSB invested in Bohai Harvest RST, a major Chinese state-owned venture capital, to buy or invest in a range of industries in China. The business relationship brought the Bidens’ into the orbit of the Chinese government, seeking and gaining influence with the Obama-Biden Administration.

The investment fund is estimated to be over $1 billion in assets. Hunter reported owning 10% for a nominal capital investment of $420,000 and recently cashed out his interest for an undisclosed amount. Below is a wire for investing in Bohai Harvest for $484,920.

Page 92 – 12/09/2014

Ukrainian Blood Money

The Obama-Biden Administration helped create instability in Ukraine, leading to a Mafia-like climate where potential Russian aggression leads to Ukraine demanding protection. Protection money is easily extorted, benefiting Hunter Biden and indirectly Joe Biden.

The ultimate price paid for the Obama-Biden Administration’s interference in destabilizing Ukraine politics is Russia responding using military force to annex Ukraine.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Close Friend and ‘Pimp’ Jean-Luc Brunel Found Dead in Apparent Prison ‘Suicide’ – He Allegedly Hung Himself, Prison Cameras Were Not Working at the Time

Jim Hoft
February 19, 2022

Jeffrey Epstein’s close associate and French modeling agent, Jean-Luc Brunel, was found dead in prison today in an apparent suicide. What a strange coincidence?

According to a previous TGP report, Epstein once allegedly had three 12-year-old girls flown in from France and delivered to him as a birthday present, a former “sex slave” says in newly released court documents.

According to a former bookkeeper, several girls presented to Epstein worked for MC2, the modeling agency owned by Jean Luc Brunel, a longtime acquaintance and frequent guest of Epstein’s. Brunel received $1 million from the billionaire around the time he started the agency.

Epstein’s friend Jean-Luc Brunel had such a reputation of abusing models that 60 Minutes did a segment on him years ago.

The Daily Mail reported on Jean-Luc Brunel’s death today.

Jeffrey Epstein’s French modelling agent friend Jean-Luc Brunel, who allegedly procured more than a thousand women and girls for the pedophile financier to sleep with, died today in an alleged prison suicide.

It comes days after Prince Andrew agreed to settle Virginia Roberts’s lawsuit accusing him of sex abuse after they met through Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Roberts accused Brunel, 74, of procuring more than a thousand women and girls for Epstein to sleep with and he was awaiting trial in France for raping minors.

His death in an alleged hanging will fuel conspiracy theories around the Epstein affair after he also died in prison while awaiting trial in what authorities say was a hanging.

However, video cameras were not running at the time he died in the cell he shared with another inmate.

Prosecutors in Paris confirmed Brunel was found hanging in his cell in La Santé, in the south of the capital city, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

‘A night patrol found his lifeless body at about 1am,’ said an investigating source. ‘A judicial enquiry has been launched, and early evidence points to suicide.’

It was in December 2020 that Brunel was indicted after two days of interviews by an examining magistrate and specialist police from an anti-paedophilia unit.

He was arrested at the city’s Charles de Gaulle airport on while trying to board a plane to Dakar, Senegal, telling detectives ‘I’m going on holiday’.

Lawsuit Claims Michigan Election Chief Illegally Accepted Zuckerberg Money to Swing 2020 Election

A lawsuit filed against Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson asserts she illegally accepted private money for the 2020 presidential election to swing the election for President Joe Biden.

The Chicago-based Thomas More Society filed the lawsuit in the Michigan Court of Claims, alleging Benson violated election law by spending private election funding on partisan purposes that denied Michigan voters’ constitutional equal access voting rights.

The Center Square previously reported Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan contributed $400 million nationwide into the 2020 election through their Chicago-based nonprofit, the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL).

The 166-page filing claims that nearly half of CTCL’s funds flowed to Democrat-dominated areas where Biden won. For example, the lawsuit says CTCL made 19 payments exceeding $100,000 all to jurisdictions that Biden carried in 2020.

The lawsuit cites an America Public Media report finding some cities spent little of the money on personal protective equipment (PPE).

The Michigan Legislature aimed to ban private funding of public elections via Senate Bill 303, which Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed in 2021.

Thomas More Society Special Counsel Thor Hearne said that Benson spent CTCL money to boost Democrat-dominated areas in the 2020 election via increased mail-in voting and ballot harvesting.

“The Michigan Constitution guarantees every eligible citizen the right of equal protection when it comes to voting, and that means state officials may not put in place an election scheme that enhances the weight of votes cast by one class of voters or increases one favored class of voters’ access to the ballot,” Hearne said in a statement. “That’s just what happened here. Analysis of data that the Center for Tech and Civic Life provided to the Internal Revenue Service and other public records demonstrates that this scheme was designed to favor urban areas in Michigan and to disadvantage Michigan voters in rural and suburban more politically conservative areas.”

Hearne said the lawsuit aims to set the rules for future elections, not past elections.

“This case is not about relitigating the 2020 election,” Hearne said. “It is about making sure that these unfair and illegal activities cannot happen in any future election in Michigan. As Michigan’s chief election official, Secretary Benson is responsible for ensuring that every eligible Michigan voter has an equal right and opportunity to cast a ballot.”

A CNN report says 11 Republican-led states have prohibited private money from funding public elections.

Thomas More Society attorneys are representing Wisconsin voters in a similar lawsuit.

“The only way Michigan residents can stop a high-tech billionaire from California from directing the conduct of Michigan’s 2022 election is for the Michigan voters and citizens to prevail in this case against Secretary of State Benson,” Thomas More Society President and Chief Counsel Tom Brejcha said in a statement.
