Biden Promises He’ll Fight Against Corruption Amidst Criticism Over Son’s Business Deals

Better late than never?

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently running for the Democratic presidential nomination, has announced that he has a plan to help fight against government corruption should he be elected president.

Part of the plan involves the creation of a new agency — an expansion of the federal government — that will enforce federal ethics laws and will work toward eliminating private dollars from political campaigns.

Check out the details from The Washington Times:

The plan includes curbing financial conflicts of interest in the executive branch, barring White House influence of Justice Department investigations and cracking down on lobbying by foreign governments.

His pivot to an anti-corruption agenda coincides with Mr. Biden facing increased scrutiny of his son Hunter’s sweetheart business deals in foreign countries while he was in the White House.

But Mr. Biden, a front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, said new anti-corruption measures were designed to repair the damage wrought by President Trump.

“Donald Trump has presided over the most corrupt administration in modern history. Trump has abused the presidency to enrich himself — spending countless tax dollars at his own properties,” the Biden campaign said when announcing the proposals.

The creation of the anti-corruption plan by Biden’s campaign comes as a move geared toward tamping down questions that have arisen about nepotism Biden might face as allegations he had a top Ukrainian prosecutor removed from his position after he launched an investigation into his son Hunter’s business dealings.

Hunter Biden also announced over the weekend that he would be stepping down from his position on the board of a Chinese-backed firm. However, he will be receiving a large amount of money, over $1 billion, as he agrees to answer questions about his overseas business deals.

Published

on

Comedian Tracy Morgan recently came to the defense of President Trump, saying that people who are criticizing his response to the coronavirus crisis should focus on supporting each other instead, especially while this outbreak is ongoing. Morgan spoke on the “Today” show Wednesday saying, “The struggle is real. People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country got sick. So, it’s difficult for him. We’ve all got to pull together as people, now.” “Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger. It’s here now. We just got to be together. We’ve got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So, let’s just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do,” Morgan went on to say.

Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died.

Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died. Morgan is spot on here. There’s far more constructing things we could be doing with our time right now than attacking President Trump. The leftist media has made this whole outbreak into an excuse for further ripping the country apart by slamming the president over and over again, especially about things he…

Nikki Haley Says Management Of Coronavirus Not Trump’s Responsibility, But Governors

Published

on

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley recently stated that victories and failures in the battle against the coronavirus that has swept across the country in the last month falls on the shoulders of governors and is there responsibility to handle, not the president’s. And you know what, she’s absolutely right. Haley, who’s most recent posting included being a United States ambassador to the United Nations, penned a piece for the NY Times that was published on Wednesday that delved into the reasons why governors are the ones ultimately responsible for responding to the coronavirus crisis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “In today’s crisis, governors from both parties have exemplified strong leadership,” she wrote. “They know their residents and their state’s needs better than anyone in the federal government. In the state-federal partnership, governors are in the best position to control what happens on the ground, better than any president could be.” Haley explained that governors are responsible for connecting federal efforts from organizations such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the cities and counties that have the most need. She added that governors are supposed to be aware of their states’ supplies for emergency situations and have the relationships with local leaders to best address the situation. “As our highest nationally elected leader, of course President Trump has enormous responsibility in this unprecedented crisis, and he is marshaling the federal response on a massive scale. But in implementing plans to save people’s lives and keep our economy afloat, look no further than the governors,” Haley penned. Haley went on to say that the coronavirus serves as a reminder of the importance of federalism and why it’s so critical to allow individual states and their governments to handle these sort of situations noting, “Governors are the most successful when…
