Biden’s Brother’s Firm Received $1.5 Billion In Government Contracts, Had Zero Experience

Seems like that could be a big problem…

A recently released book details how multiple members of the Biden family became rich thanks to Joe Biden’s position as vice president of the United States. In other words, Joe apparently leveraged his public position as one of the most powerful men in the world to his advantage, which in turn benefitted his relatives.

Yeah, that’s kind of a problem. Here’s what’s up, via Breitbart:

A firm employing James Biden, the younger brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, received more than $1.5 billion in government-backed contracts during the Obama administration.

The dovetailing of James Biden’s professional life with his brother’s political influence are extensively detailed in Peter Schweizer’s new book—Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite.

In 2010, shortly after a disastrous attempt at running a hedge fund with his nephew Hunter, James Biden entered the construction and international development industry. Even though he lacked background in either, James secured a position as executive vice president at the newly formed HillStone International, LLC. The firm, which was a subsidiary of the long struggling Hill International, was unique for a multitude of reasons.

What more do Democrats need to know about Biden?

Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he ever done anything to benefit the United States during his decades in public service?

Come on, people. When is enough enough? Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward.

WATCH:

Woah.

Watch Joe Biden attack Barack Obama’s foreign policy credentials.

Reactions:

And yet the man had no idea his son was using his connection to get big paying Burisma job. The more I see of Joe the less I like him.

Biden has always had a lot to say on foreign policy. And he’s always been wrong.

Gotta wonder how Obama will respond to this. Joe is a idiot.

He jumps right into intimidation every single time he’s challenged. Textbook verbal assault.

This is what Dems believe commands respect on the world stage? Respect is earned, not commanded. “Garner respect” would be the better term.

@JoeBiden’s facelifts make him look like th @MadameTussauds wax figure of a human being. or an avatar. and enough with th high-beam porcelains. how about th mansion he’s lived in on an estate since 1977 while claimG to be th poorest person in congress. #DonorClassJoe #LyinBiden

Hillary Clinton Says Disgraced Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein ‘Contributed To Every Democrat’s Campaign’

Published

Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attempted to downplay the financial contributions disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein made to her political campaigns, stating that he contributed to every Democrat’s campaign. This, ladies and gentlemen, is “crooked Hillary” at her finest. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “He contributed to every Democrat’s campaign,” Clinton said when asked about the disgraced movie mogul’s contributions at the Berlin International Film Festival, where she was attending a screening of her new Hulu documentary. “He contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign, and John Kerry’s campaign and Al Gore’s campaign and everybody’s campaign.” “I don’t know whether that should chill anyone else from contributing to political campaigns, but it certainly should end the kind of behavior that he was just convicted for,” Clinton added. Weinstein, 67, was convicted Monday of first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape in New York City. He faces a possible sentence of between five and 25 years. Weinstein also faces charges in Los Angeles after he was indicted in January, just after the first trial got underway. In that case, he is accused of raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in back-to-back nights during the week of the Oscar Awards in 2013. So how much money did Hillary get from Weinstein while running for Senate and the presidency? According to the Federal Election Commission data, about $55,000. Weinstein was also a huge contributor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, donating around $72,000. Clinton recently defended the rather well-documented friendship she’s had with Weinsten, saying earlier this year that there was no way she could’ve known about the movie mogul’s predatory impulses and actions. “How could we have known? He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that…

You’re probably reading that headline and saying to yourself, Nah, Joe didn’t say 150 million people were killed by guns since 2007. There’s no way even he would say something that ridiculous! Well, my friends, you’d be wrong. According to the former 2020 Democrat frontrunner and soon-to-be three-time failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, his statement is accurate. 150 million people, all dead – from guns, since 2017. Just…I mean…Joe…WHAT IS THE DEAL, BRO!? The guy also said he’s coming after gun manufacturers if he’s elected. So, you’re safe, gun manufacturers.

Still a lot, obviously, but not even sorta kinda close to 150 million. From NBC News: More Americans have died from gunshots in the last 50 years than in all of the wars in American history. Since 1968, more than 1.5 million Americans have died in gun-related incidents, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By comparison, approximately 1.2 million service members have been killed in every war in U.S. history, according to estimates from the Department of Veterans Affairs and iCasualties.org, a website that maintains an ongoing database of casualties from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
