Biden Family Received ‘Some $31 Million’ from Individuals Linked to ‘Highest Levels of Chinese Intelligence’

Schweizer, the author of Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, said Biden’s son Hunter, while the elder Biden was serving as both vice president and president, was engaged in deals with individuals tied to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence. He called the Biden family’s business dealings “unprecedented.”

“One of the most startling things we uncovered is the simple fact that the Biden family, while he was vice president of the United States and continuing when he became president, received some $31 million from Chinese individuals who are linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence,” Schweizer outlined on Fox News Channel’s Life, Liberty & Levin.

He continued, “And these deals, which we lay out in the book, were carried out by a couple of individuals. One is a guy named Che Feng. Hunter Biden, in the Hunter Biden emails, refers to him as the Super Chairman. That’s kind of his nickname for him, and he says in one email, ‘I don’t believe in the lottery anymore, but I believe in the Super Chairman.’”

“His business partner was the vice minister at the ministry for state security,” Schweizer added. “He was in charge of, among other things, recruiting foreign nationals to spy for China. He was the head of something called the Number Eight Bureau. It doesn’t get any higher than that. These are the sorts of individuals that were striking deals with Hunter Biden. In this particular case, Che Feng happened to help a $20 million deal be secured. Another individual that helped arrange that deal is a guy named Mr. Zhao. Mr. Zhao helped with that $20 million deal. He also sent $5 million to Hunter Biden, and he sent that money from a very interesting business called Harvest Global.”

According to Schweizer, Jiao’s business partner is “the daughter of the former head of the ministry of state security.”

“This is the guy who runs the entire spy apparatus for China,” Schweizer emphasized. “Again, it does not get any higher than that.”

“And for the life of me, Mark, this is unprecedented,” he added. “I don’t know of a time in American history where the American first family has had this kind of a financial bond with a foreign intelligence service, particularly a foreign intelligence service that wants to defeat the United States in global competition.”

White House Press Secretary Slips and Says Who She’s Really Reporting To and It’s Not Biden

January 22, 2022

For more than a year Americans have wondered who is running the country.  We know it’s not Joe Biden so who is it?

We asked in January 2021 before his inauguration, who was running the Biden gang?

We had indications that perhaps it was Obama that was running this nightmare of a Presidency.  It’s not Biden, that’s for sure.  And it does make sense.  With Biden, Obama can do all the things he wanted to do to this country and yet not take the blame for the reaction to these destructive policies.  Afghanistan is an example of this.

Obama shared the following:

Pelosi slipped and labeled the failed policy mislabeled ‘Build Back Better’ an Obama program.

Now Twitchy reported today on White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki slipping and claiming she reports to Obama.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was on “The View” yesterday where co-host Ana Navarro got her to circle back to the matter of President Biden saying there’s a possibility the November midterm elections won’t be legitimate.

During the same interview, Psaki moved the needle on some Freudian slip detectors:

So right now bets are that Obama is running the country, despite this being totally illegal.  But since Obama and Biden never respected the law or the US Constitution, this is the best bet on who’s [failing at] running this country.

Truck Drivers Become Biden and Trudeau’s Worst Nightmare, Disrupt US-Canada Border to Protest Vax Mandate

Isa Cox, The Western Journal
January 19th, 2022

Truckers caused serious disruptions at crossing points between the United States and Canada on Monday to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates that threaten their livelihoods — and that experts warn could have major ramifications for trade between our two countries.

Dozens of big rigs slow-rolled along Highway 75 near the U.S.-Canada border, clogging access to the border checkpoint and causing delays, to protest mandates that could leave thousands out of work and exasperate problems for an already precarious supply chain in North America.

Starting Saturday, Canada’s federal government ordered that all unvaccinated Canadian truckers returning from the U.S. must quarantine for two weeks and foreign drivers who are unvaccinated no longer can cross into Canada, according to CBC.

Meanwhile, Beginning on Tuesday, the Biden administration will require all foreign drivers to show proof of vaccination to enter the U.S., Reuters reported.

Truckers say these mandates could have “detrimental” impacts on their industry.

“We need to end all of these totalitarian mandates that our government has imposed on us for the last two years,” Rick Wall, president of a trucking firm and the organizer of Monday’s protest, told CBC.

“This is put on by truckers, but we are calling to end all mandates for every single human being in this country, not just for us,” he said. “It’s extremely frustrating.”

Displaying signs opposing the vaccine requirement with slogans such as “Stop Mandates,” “Stop Fascists” and “Freedom to Choose,” truckers and some other vehicles moved in a slow loop between the Emerson, Manitoba, port of entry and the weigh scales.

The slow-roll protest did not block any lanes but slowed traffic considerably in the area, according to CBC.

“We basically all stand in unity,” Wall explained. “When the trucking community unite and stand together, we can create change with the support of others and that’s what we’re trying to accomplish out here.”

Joe Janzen, who owns Smoke’n Transport, told CBC that the vaccine requirement for truckers is just needlessly “messing with people’s lives.”

Rob Penner, CEO of Winnipeg-based Bison Transport, said that while his company is “on board” with the requirement, some of his drivers are now in “limbo” as those who have not been vaccinated are stuck doing domestic routes.

All the while, he told CBC, cross-border truckers have very little contact with others to begin with and had the lowest number of COVID-19 cases in the transport business.

Penner also noted that it’s the consumer who is going to get hit with increased costs thanks to the stringent Canadian and American vaccine requirements.

Industry insiders share his concerns.

Bloomberg’s Jen Skerritt noted last week that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is playing a “dangerous game” by blocking unvaccinated American truckers from entering his country as this makes thousands of drivers ineligible to transport goods into Canada.

That is causing issues for an already strained supply chain as the $45 billion worth of goods that travel between the U.S. and Canada each month rely on steady open travel over the border.

“The new rules could cause a bigger disruption to cross-border shipments than the outbreak of the virus did in March 2020,” Skerritt wrote.

“At the time, Trudeau’s government and the Trump administration agreed to close the land border to non-essential travelers, but trucks were allowed to keep moving,” she said. “The deal helped quell some of the panic in Canada from consumers who rely on food imported from the U.S. and Mexico, especially in the winter.”

Now, however, Canadians are likely to see even more empty shelves at the grocery store. Sylvain Charlebois, a professor and Canadian food supply chain expert, told Skerritt that as the omicron variant slows down the food industry, the vaccine mandate “could add fuel to the fire.”

A separate Bloomberg report noted that the cost of importing produce from Arizona and California to Canada just jumped 25 percent, and some industry insiders say they’re hearing rumors companies are looking to stop shipping perishable goods altogether. Much of Canada’s produce is transported from the U.S, where it is either grown or received from South America at American ports and then driven north.

Trudeau and Biden’s mandates for truckers target an industry that transports 70 percent of goods between their two countries, and as the Biden federal mandate for private employers was halted by the Supreme Court last week, an industry with already low vaccination rates is unlikely to increase the roughly 50-60 percent of truckers who have gotten the jab.

It’s not as if North America was experiencing a shortage of supply chain crises and massive hits to the working and middle classes.

How many workers will be affected by disruptions caused by these mandates? It’s not just the truckers, it’s the workers in all the other industries that rely upon transport to do their business, as well as the consumers.

We’re talking about potentially millions of people whose livelihoods and economic stability are going to be threatened because Trudeau and Biden want to require truckers to get vaccinated — the same truckers who made sure that goods were transported at the peak of the pandemic when no one was vaccinated.

It’s no wonder they’re frustrated.

The delays they caused on Monday are just a drop in the bucket compared with what these far-reaching mandates will do to their industry — and to the rest of us.

More Than Two Dozen FBI Agents Descend on Home of Texas Democrat Rep. Who Blasted Biden and Harris Over Border Crisis

Cristina Laila
January 19, 2022 

What’s going on?

More than two dozen FBI agents descended on Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar’s Laredo, Texas home on Wednesday.

The FBI was also present at Cuellar’s campaign office in Laredo.

“Congressman Cuellar will fully cooperate in any investigation. He is committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld,” his office said.

The FBI refused to comment on the ongoing investigation.

Rep. Cuellar, a nine-term Texas Democrat lawmaker who represents an area along the US-Mexico border, has lashed out at both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for allowing illegal aliens to pour over the border.

“I’ve moved on from the vice president to say, ‘OK, let’s work with the ambassadors and let’s work with the State Department. Let’s work with the Homeland Secretary,’” Cuellar said before the holidays.

“I think that’s the way to address it, but I know that the media has put a lot of focus on the vice president, but with all due respect, she was given that title. I don’t think she’s, with all due respect, put the effort in there…We’ve got to look at other folks that have the expertise on that,” he added.

Is this FBI raid revenge for speaking out against the regime?

The Monitor reported:

The FBI conducted what it described as “court-authorized” law enforcement activity at the Laredo home of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar on Wednesday.

Agents were also present at his downtown campaign office in Laredo.

Although FBI spokesperson Roseanne Hughes did not identify what the agency is investigating, she did issue a statement acknowledging the activity.

“The FBI was present in the vicinity of Windridge Drive and Estate Drive in Laredo conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity,” the statement read. “The FBI cannot provide further comment on an ongoing investigation.”

At Cuellar’s home, located in the 8200 block of Estate Drive, federal vehicles were seen with cases and other items taken from the congressman’s house as over two dozen agents filed in and out of the residence Wednesday afternoon.

Two agents with a clipboard and camera in hand snapped photos of the trucks parked out front. The truck was again photographed and searched by agents using flashlights after the sunset.

According to reports, FBI agents were seen leaving Cuellar’s home Wednesday night with large plastic bins and a computer.

MLK Niece Alveda King: Biden ‘Race-Baiting, Playing the Race Card’ with Voting Reform Rhetoric

Natalia Mittelstadt
January 18th, 2022

Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., blasted President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday for “stirring up emotions to get their way” with voting legislation.

Biden said on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day that state laws requiring voter ID or banning mass mailing of absentee ballots are an “assault on our freedom to vote,” particularly for minority Americans.

But voter ID is necessary “because we tell somebody they don’t need an ID, they don’t count,” King told the John Solomon Reports podcast. “They may as well just mark an ‘X’ on a ballot. So we need the ID and sensible voting.”

King added that what “Biden is doing [is] stirring the race card, race baiting, playing the race card, trying to stir up emotion.”

“Martin Luther King, Jr. was a prophet and a preacher before he was a civil rights leader,” said his niece, a pro-life advocate. “And you have to put all of that together and represent human dignity from the womb to the tomb.

“Now, that’s not what Biden is doing — President Biden and Vice President Harris, they’re not — Nancy Pelosi and all of them. They’re stirring up emotions to get their way. It’s like having temper tantrums when you in the highest seats in this office.”

The Democrats, King said, are sowing fear around voting legislation, saying, in effect, “Be afraid, be very afraid.” 

In contrast to Democratic fearmongers and doomsayers, her uncle was “a man of faith, hope, and love,” King recalled. “And he, of course, believed in appropriate voting and legislation and the laws, but he said the law can’t make you love me, but it can keep you from lynching me.”

Soviet-style Street Art Mocking Biden and Fauci Appears in D.C.

 Madeleine Hubbard
January 16, 2022

Soviet-style posters mocking President Joe Biden and White House Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci popped up overnight Saturday in Washington, D.C., but the posters were ripped down within hours. 

Leigh Wolf, a conservative communications professional, tweeted photos of the four posters.

“Somebody put up this incredible street art in DC over night,” he said. “Knowing DC it’ll be ripped down within hours. All must comply!”

One photo of the poster shows an angry Biden holding a hammer labeled OHSA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) and with the word “COMPLY” serving as a border. Another poster shows a Biden portrayed as a saint surrounded by a halo of vaccines. The poster states, “Good kids are compliant kids” as children look up at the president. 

“Mandate! Segregate! Subjugate!” is written at the top of another poster featuring Biden holding a sphere of the coronavirus. The fourth poster shows Dr. Fauci dressed in a priest’s garb, with an atom halo holding a giant vaccine as pills and money rain behind him, and the caption is “Trust the scientism.”

About ten minutes after tweeting pictures of the posters, Wolf followed up with a video. “ANNND some lady is already out here ripping down the ‘dangerous propaganda,'” he wrote.

He asked the woman in the video why she was tearing down the posters. 

“It’s a public health concern,” she told him. 

“I mean, it’s just art,” Wolf replied.

“It is dangerous. Propaganda is a tool,” she said, adding, “this is bulls***.”

Wolf told the conservative website American Conservative Movement he has no idea who put the posters up. He found the posters in northwest D.C.

Tablet Magazine CTO Noam Blum found the posters in another location in D.C. and also tweeted a photo.

Not the Bee, a website from creators of the satirical Babylon Bee, created an article about the posters headlined, “Someone put up this brilliantly based street art in D.C. and of course some Karen came along to tear it down.”

Crime Bill Biden Tells Sick Lie About His Role in the Civil Rights Movement Right to the Faces of MLK’s Family

Michael Austin, The Western Journal
January 12th, 2022

President Joe Biden seems to have a strange need to tell the same, very specific, repeatedly debunked lie over and over again.

The last time the president was caught in this lie, he was even pressured to recant it, admitting he was wrong.

Nevertheless, on Tuesday during a speech at the Atlanta University Center Consortium, Biden repeated this lie yet again — the lie that he had been arrested during a civil rights movement demonstration.

What’s even worse is that he told this mistruth in front of the family of Martin Luther King Jr., some of whom were hesitant to even attend Biden’s speech, according to Politico.

During the address, which was regarding “protecting the right to vote” (which is Democrat-speak for the effort to completely eliminate all voting safeguards), Biden spouted out his civil rights lie while performing his typical racial justice pandering to the consortium, which is made up of four historically black colleges and universities.

“I did not live the struggle of Douglass, Tubman, King, Lewis, Goodman, Chaney, and Schwerner, and countless others — known and unknown,” Biden said, according to a White House transcript of his remarks. “I did not walk in the shoes of generations of students who walked these grounds. But I walked other grounds. Because I’m so damn old, I was there as well.”

“You think I’m kidding, man. It seems like yesterday the first time I got arrested.”

Previously, during his failed run for the presidency in 1987, Biden claimed to have marched in the civil rights movement when he was a student in the 1960s, according to the Washington Examiner.

He later had to walk those statements back, saying, “I was not down marching. I was not down in Selma. I was not anywhere else.”

Despite walking back his claims, Biden spouted off a similar lie during his 2020 presidential campaign when he claimed to have been arrested while visiting with former South African President Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

“This day, 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid. I had the great honor of meeting him,” Biden said at a campaign event in 2020, the Examiner reported.

“I had the great honor of being arrested with our U.N. ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see him on Robben Island.”

In a subsequent interview with CNN, Biden noted he “wasn’t arrested” but was merely “stopped” and “not able to move where I wanted to go.”

It’s hard to understand why exactly Biden keeps repeating this same old lie.

Maybe it’s because he’s a duplicitous politician hoping to paint himself as a racial justice activist at a time when racial justice pandering is at a premium.

Or maybe it’s simply because, at 79-years-old, Biden’s memory and mental faculties are not what they once were.

His long history of lying suggests the former is true.

Regardless, don’t let the president fool you — his word can hardly be trusted.

Biden Admin Compiling Database Of Religious Objectors To Vaccine Within Obscure Agency

An obscure agency within the Biden administration, the Pretrial Services Agency, announced an Orwellian tracking scheme on Tuesday that could serve as a model for the entire US government to collect the names and “personal religious information” of federal employees who make “religious accommodation requests for religious exception from the federally mandated vaccination requirement,” according to the Daily Signal.

“The primary purpose of the secured electronic file repository is to collect, maintain, use, and—to the extent appropriate and necessary—disseminate employee religious exception request information collected by the Agency in the context of the federally mandated COVID-19 vaccination requirement,” according to the Federal Register.

The announcement does not explain why the agency needs to create this list except to say that it will “assist the Agency in the collecting, storing, dissemination, and disposal of employee religious exemption request information collected and maintained by the Agency.” In other words, the list will help the agency make a list.

The announcement also does not say what the agency will do with this information after it has decided an employee’s religious accommodation request.

And neither does the announcement explain why the Biden administration chose to test this policy in an agency with a majority-black staff, who are both more religious and less vaccinated than other groups. So much for the president’s commitment to “racial equity.” -Daily Signal

The Signal suggests that the Biden administration is using the tiny agency as a test bed for deploying the database across the entire US government – noting that the announcement was relegated to an obscure group and given just 30 days for public comment.

Meanwhile, the US government has treated religious exemptions as a joke.

Take the Department of Defense, for example—which has failed to grant a single religious exemption on behalf of any service members requesting one for the federal vaccine mandate. A group of Navy SEALS was recently successful in its federal lawsuit against the Biden administration on claims that its conscience rights under the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act were violated.

From the outset of his administration, Biden voiced support for passage of the patently faith-hostile Equality Act—a bill that would gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act entirely when it intersects with LGBTQ+ protections and entitlements in public accommodations.

The president also swiftly revoked the Mexico City policy that had been reinstated by former President Donald Trump, thereby ensuring that religious Americans would be forced to fund abortions overseas by way of their tax dollars, despite their religious objections to the act. -Daily Signal

Dr. Fauci, Senator Paul Clash (Again) over Biden Administration’s Covid-19 Response

Sophie Mann
January 11th, 2022

Dr. Anthony Fauci and GOP Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday clashed again over the Biden administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Republican lawmaker also accusing President Biden’s top medical adviser of conspiring to silence critics.

Paul, in a Senate hearing at which Fauci testified, introduced an email exchange between Fauci and former National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins, in which Collins suggested “creating a quick and devastating public takedown” of several epidemiologists from Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford, who apparently held opinions about COVID with which Francis and Fauci disagreed. 

“In an email exchange with Dr. Collins, you conspire, and I quote here directly from the email, to ‘create a quick and devastating published takedown’ of three prominent epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford and Stanford,” Paul said. 

Paul also said: “A planner who believes he is ‘the science’ leads to an arrogance that justifies, in his mind, using government resources to smear and to destroy the reputations of other scientists who disagree with him.”

Fauci, also director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, contested Paul’s claims, which included that Fauci promptly agreed to Collins’ plan.

“In usual fashion, senator, you are distorting everything about me,” Fauci said. “You do the same thing every hearing.”

To be sure, Paul, also a doctor, has been among Fauci’s most vocal critics since the early stages of the pandemic and has called for him to fired from his government post. 

Their heated exchange Tuesday appeared to peak when Fauci pulled out photographs from the senator’s campaign website with the words “Fire Dr. Fauci” beside a picture of the doctor and an option to donate to the Paul’s reelection campaign.

Fauci also repeatedly accused Paul of attacking him for political gain. 

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky; acting Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock; and Dawn O’Connell, the Department of Health and Human Services’ assistant secretary for preparedness and response, also testified before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on the pandemic response and the surge in COVID cases as a result of the highly contagious Omicron variant. 

Questions about confusing communication efforts from the government to the American people about things like booster shots, test availability, and CDC guidelines quickly devolved into emotional, political sparring when Paul was given the floor.

The lawmaker opened his questioning period by calling Fauci a scientist who “rules by mandate” but often makes mistakes.

Committee Chairwoman Democratic Sen. Patty Murray briefly allowed Fauci to respond to some of Paul’s remarks, during which time he discussed the recent arrest of a man Iowa who was allegedly on his way to Washington, D.C., with an AR-15 weapon in his car to kill him.

Fauci said such accusations from Paul “kindle the crazies out there” to behave in way that could be harmful and dangerous to him and his family. 

Paul, in 2017, was attacked on his own lawn by a neighbor who ran onto the lawmaker’s property and tackled him. As a result of the attack, Paul suffered five rib fractures and later required medical attention for pneumonia.

Joe Biden Stares Blankly Into Space During Press Conference After Simple Question

Carmine Sabia
January 4, 2022

OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author’s opinion

When President Joe Biden does not want to answer a question or does not know the answer to a question it often shows.

That was the case on Monday when a reporter called him on his previous claim that he was going to issue 500 million free at-home COVID tests.

“When will Americans get those free COVID tests, sir?” a reporter said at the end of Biden’s press briefing to which the president just stared blankly ahead.

“When our family needs them, we can’t get them,” former senior Department of Homeland Security official Ken Cuccinelli said. “Though, to be clear, at this stage and knowing what we have long known, #LetsGoBrandon is right about one thing: there’s not a federal solution.”

Two weeks ago Biden said that the federal government planned to purchase half a billion tests and would mail them to anyone who wanted them.

“We also need to do better with at-home testing.  So, I’m announcing today: The federal government will purchase one half billion — that’s not million; billion with a ‘B’ — additional at-home rapid tests, with deliveries starting in January,” he said.

“We’ll be getting these tests to Americans for free.  And we’ll have websites where you can get them delivered to your home.

“We have arranged for it to be easier for you to find a free COVID testing site near you on Google.  Just enter ‘COVID test near m’” in the Google search bar and you can find a number of different locations nearby where you can get tested,” the president said.

“And we’re going to continue to use the Defense Production Act as we did earlier this month to make sure we’re producing as many tests and as quickly as possible,” he said.

But Biden has said many things. Take a look at this one from 2020 when he was campaigning to be president.

“On March 6th, Donald Trump said: ‘Anybody that wants a test can get a test.’ It was a lie then, and it’s still not true nearly two months later. It’s a disgrace, and it’s slowing efforts to reopen safely. This administration needs to act immediately to surge testing nationwide,” he said in May 2020, near two years ago.

But somehow in his first year in the White House tests are more scarce than they have ever been, which is a main reason why, Politico reported, that there is likely to be a primary challenger to Biden in 2024.

“No one now in office — and none of the top-tier presidential contenders from 2020 — is viewed as a serious prospect to take on Biden. Nor is there any expectation that Sanders or Sen. Elizabeth Warren, both of whom have enjoyed a significant amount of influence in the Biden administration, would primary Biden,” it said. “Instead, liberals believe lesser-known candidates are more likely to primary Biden if he seeks a second term, such as former Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner, 2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson or millionaire and $18-an-hour minimum wage advocate Joe Sanberg.”

“He’s deeply unpopular. He’s old as s***. He’s largely been ineffective unless we’re counting judges or whatever the hell inside-baseball scorecard we’re using. And I think he’ll probably get demolished in the midterms,” Corbin Trent, co-founder of a progressive PAC and the former communications director for New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said. “People will smell opportunity, and D.C. is filled with people who want to be president.”

Mark Longabaugh, a former consultant for Sen. Bernie Sanders who now makes progressive ads, said Biden should expect a progressive challenger.

“I don’t think the country nor certainly not progressives in the party, who all tend to be younger, are going to sit on the sidelines,” he said.
