Hunter Biden’s Latest Scheme: Posing as an ‘Artist’ and Selling ‘Paintings’ for Millions

Hunter Biden’s newest grift is identifying as an “artist” and selling “paintings” for millions.

Ever looking for his next grift, Hunter Biden is at it again, this time identifying as an “artist” and selling “paintings” to gullible leftists for millions.

Hunter is the man whose grift in Ukraine earned him millions with a no-show, no-work “job” at the gas company called Burisma — a job he only got because the company expected that they would have access to then Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter’s dad.

Now, he is selling influence with a new scam, this time pretending he is an “artist.”

According to Fox Business Network, Hunter is suddenly a world-renowned artiste selling paintings for $500,000 apiece and more despite having no known history or training as an artist in the past.

As FBN reported on Wednesday:

The first son’s first foray into the art world has seen his pieces picked up by art dealer Georges Berges, who has priced the younger Biden’s artwork between $75,000 and $500,000 depending on the size and scope of the collage artwork.

That’s a pretty big haul when compared to other artists’ first sales. In fact, Biden’s pieces are worth more off the bat than a piece by Jean-Michel Basquiat that sold for $20,900 in 1984 – $53,770.96 in today’s dollars after adjusting for inflation.

“I don’t paint from emotion or feeling, which I think are both very ephemeral,” Biden told artnet on Monday. “For me, painting is much more about kind of trying to bring forth what is, I think, the universal truth.”

News also broke that the identities of people paying this idiotic amount for the rube garbage Hunter is churning out as “art” will not be made public.

Folks, this is just another grift. These people don’t think they are buying real art. They are expecting to be filling Hunter’s pockets so that they can then ply that mountain of cash as a pipeline to President Joe Biden. This is only Hunter’s latest attempt at influence peddling.

It’s just another scam.

CDC Set to Make Major Change to Mask Policy as Delta Variant Spreads

One step forward, two steps back…

Published

on

We were so close, weren’t we?  It has very much felt like the American people were on the precipice of pandemic peace in recent weeks, as restaurants and movie theaters and concert venues all began to open back up in earnest. But then the “delta” variant began to spread, having mutated out of the unvaccinated populations of the world, spreading faster and more vociferously than the strain we’d been battling for well over a year.  Now, thanks to a major uptick in transmission rates, the CDC is about to take a large step backward. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to recommend Tuesday that fully vaccinated people begin wearing masks indoors again in places with high Covid-19 transmission rates, according to people familiar with the matter. Federal health officials still believe fully vaccinated individuals represent a very small amount of transmission, according to the sources. Still, some vaccinated people could be carrying higher levels of the virus than previously understood and potentially transmit it to others, they said. The CDC is slated to hold a briefing at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The weather had something to do with it, as well. The updated guidance comes ahead of the fall season, when the highly contagious delta variant is expected to cause another surge in new coronavirus cases and many large employers plan to bring workers back to the office. In mid-May, the CDC said fully vaccinated people didn’t need to wear masks in most settings, whether indoors or outdoors. The move is certainly not going to be a popular one in the United States, where the vaccination rate has essentially peaked, with nearly half the country having opted to forego the inoculation.

DeSantis Under Fire as Jacksonville Doc Pleads for COVID Help

But will the Sunshine State Governor be inclined to budge?

Published

on

Florida has long been a bastion of freedom during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Governor Ron DeSantis has been a large part of the reason why. DeSantis has repeatedly shunned the possibility of trouncing freedom for security in the Sunshine State, exuding a sort of libertarian ethos on the subject of the coronavirus crisis.  Not only has he refused to enact any harsh COVID-related restrictions, but DeSantis has even gone so far as to pardon any Floridians who faced charges on account of such guidelines. But now, as cases rise all across the state of Florida, one doctor in Jacksonville has a wild request for his governor. The Duval County Medical Society Foundation president urged Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to declare a State of Emergency in regards to the spike in coronavirus cases in the state. “Is it time for Governor to declare a state of emergency/public health emergency in Florida regarding COVID-19 hospitalizations with what we are seeing here? Yes,” Dr. Sunil Joshi tweeted Monday afternoon. Joshi continued by saying hospitals need federal money and extra staff to deal with growing numbers of patients with COVID-19. “Our hospitals, our hospital staff, the administration and every ancillary service is being overwhelmed with COVID patients,” Joshi told First Coast News. “That peak is happening at a much, much more steeper rate than it did at any time last year, and that is overwhelming our system.” DeSantis is unlikely to act in such a way, however, having already staked his reputation on the idea that Florida will not succumb to fear in the face of the virus.
