NEVER TOLERATE TYRANNY!....Conservative voices from the GRASSROOTS.
Wednesday, May 10, 2023
Good morning, America.
First, a warning. I had to cut this post roughly in half- and it's still a long one. Please stick with me to the end.
Finding truth within our Federal governance is a most “slippery slope” these days. However, as Congressional reaction to the ubiquitous corruption associated with the Biden Crime Family looks more and more like a veritable noose tightening around the neck of Joe’s political life, the possibility of impeachment seems ever more likely.
Impeachment of Slick Willie was a bit of a stretch- compared to what Joey the Crook deserves. The multiple impeachments of the Trumpster, of course, were obviously no more than political vendettas. What boggles my mind? Why waste Congressional time and effort on impeaching Alejandro Mayorkas! Go for “the head of the snake!” At least, the head of the more venomous snake…
True, we all know Biden seems to be entrapped in severe mental decline, has extreme difficulty separating truth from fiction, and often exhibits what can only be termed “bizarre behavior.”
Nevertheless, any attempt to remove Biden through via the 25th Amendment would likely be opened and closed in the Democrat controlled Senate within the course of a few minutes. This is why impeachment represents the only reliable course of action by the Republican controlled House.
Impeachment allows a much larger window of investigation in the House- a portal to truth through which the American people can gain reasonable access to the inner workings to the Biden Crime Family.
And no, impeachment won’t fly in the Senate either- BUT significant damage to the Globalist Biden agenda will be accomplished.
Bottom line? Toss a REAL wrench into the machinery of the Biden Crime Family by impeaching Joey the Crook NOW.
Now a history lesson from Ernest A Canning from his article in The Hill dated March 16, 2016 entitled “The Clintons and the Sordid UBS Affair. UBS is the abbreviation for the Union Bank of Switzerland. Here is the entire article:
“The story, as originally recounted by James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus of The Wall Street Journal, was, of itself, deeply troubling. In March 2009, after meeting with Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton intervened with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of Switzerland’s most powerful banking institution, UBS. The IRS, which at that time was seeking the identity of wealthy Americans who had stashed some $20 billion in 52,000 tax evading UBS accounts, then agreed that the Swiss bank need only turn over information on 4,450 accounts. Afterwards, UBS increased its previous $60,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation ten-fold. By the end of 2014, UBS donations to the Clinton Foundation totaled $600,000. UBS also ‘paid former President Bill Clinton $1.5 million to participate in a series of question-and-answer sessions with UBS Wealth Management Chief Executive Bob McCann, making UBS his biggest single corporate source of speech income disclosed since he left the White House.’
Those facts, of themselves, raise disturbing questions. Did a bank that still ranks as ‘the world’s biggest wealth manager’ and has at its disposal a bevy of economists and law firms have a legitimate reason for paying Bill Clinton $1.5 million in speaking fees? Or was the $1.5 million and the tenfold increase in Clinton Foundation donations a reward for the former secretary of State’s intervention? If the latter, that reward would have, under federal law (18 U.S.C. § 201(c)(1)(A)), amounted to an illicit bribe.
But there’s a more troubling question that arises. There can be little doubt that a media firestorm would ensue if a former president were to accept a lucrative speaking fee from the Mafia. Should the reaction be any different when the speaking fee comes from ‘banksters’ who defrauded the U.S. government?
That’s the true context here, according to a Feb. 18, 2009 U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) press release that discussed the details of an unsealed ‘criminal information’ and a ‘deferred prosecution agreement.’ The DOJ alleges that UBS did much more than permit wealthy Americans to stash billions in tax evading offshore accounts. In direct violation of a 2000 agreement with the IRS, Swiss bankers traveled to the U.S. 3,800 times to foster the elicit business and ‘used encrypted laptops and other counter-surveillance techniques to help prevent the detection of their marketing efforts and the identities and offshore assets of their U.S. clients.’
‘UBS executives knew that UBS’s cross-border business violated the law,’; said R. Alexander Acosta, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. ‘They refused to stop this activity… and in fact instructed their bankers to grow the business. The reason was money- the business was too profitable to give up. This was not mere compliance oversight, but rather a knowing crime motivated by greed and disrespect for the law.’
In exchange for the ‘deferred prosecution’ of criminal fraud charges, UBS paid $780 million in fines and restitution, agreed to cease the illegal cross-border practice and ‘to immediately provide the United States government with the identities of, and account information for, certain United States customers of UBS’s cross-border business,’ according to the DOJ press release.
When UBS, which could have lost its ability to conduct business in the U.S. if successfully prosecuted, balked at the IRS demand that it turn over information for all 52,000 accounts, the IRS filed a legal action seeking to compel disclosure. That is when, at the behest of the Swiss government, Hillary Clinton stepped in to negotiate a deal that prevented the IRS from gaining access to more than 91 percent of the illicit, tax-evading offshore accounts.”
So you see, perhaps Joey the Crook may have borrowed a few lines out of the Clinton playbook regarding the advantages of receiving bribes from international sources.
From Steven Nelson of the New York Post on May 4, 2023:
“WASHINGTON — Multiple tips to diplomats and law enforcement that might explain a whistleblower claim describing President Biden taking bribes have emerged- as the White House said Thursday it had ‘nothing’ to say about the matter.
House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued a subpoena Wednesday requiring the FBI to hand over an informant report that describes ‘an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions.’
‘I’m gonna have to refer you to the Justice Department on that,’ National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told The Post during a White House briefing. ‘I have nothing for you on that today.’
‘Do you know what country this pertains to or what policy decision?’ The Post’s reporter asked.
‘I have nothing for you, sir. I’m going to have to refer you to the Justice Department. And I’m getting the hook- see ya,’ said Kirby, relinquishing the lectern to press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
The White House did not allow reporters any direct access to the president Thursday- a rarity for a weekday- meaning that Biden himself could not be asked about the claim.
Comer ordered the FBI to hand over the alleged document containing the allegation against Biden at a meeting on May 10- specifying in his subpoena that the record was ‘created or modified in June 2020.’
The Post has not yet learned of a complaint that neatly matches the June 2020 timeframe, though the 'created or modified' wording attracted notice because it left open the possibility that the report was drafted earlier before being revised that month.
One informant tip that may fit the description was given to the US embassy in Moscow in early 2012 about an alleged effort by Russian billionaire Vladimir Yevtushenkov to get close to then-second son Hunter Biden in order to influence the Obama-Biden administration amid an investigation of his cellphone company for bribery.
That tip was made to a State Department official at the US embassy and not to an FBI agent, a source told The Post. It’s unclear if it was relayed to the bureau and if so when- or why such a document may have been revised in June 2020.
The State Department official was ‘in total shock’ and ‘couldn’t believe something so brazen could be going on,’ the source told The Post.
At the time, the Justice Department was investigating Yevtushenkov’s cellphone company MTS for bribery in Uzbekistan, while then-VP Joe Biden was helping lead US efforts to ‘reset’ US-Russia relations.
Yevtushenkov met with Hunter to discuss real estate twice, according to documents from the first son’s former laptop: In March 2012 in New York City and January 2013 in Washington. It’s unclear how many properties in the US he may have purchased in cooperation with the then-vice president’s son.
Ahead of his 2012 meeting with Hunter at the Ritz-Carlton in Manhattan, Yevtushenkov allegedly said he wanted to befriend Hunter so that ‘maybe he can do a favor for us and we can do a favor for him,’ a source who spoke with Yevtushenkov at the time told The Post earlier this year.
‘It was a complete quid pro quo that he was going in for,’ the source said. ‘I told him that’s not the way it works in America, [but] he basically laughed at me and told me I was so naïve.’
MTS was at the center of a long-running Justice Department investigation into nearly $1 billion in bribes paid to Uzbekistani officials between 2004 and 2012. MTS, which was listed on the New York Stock Exchange before trading in its shares was suspended in July 2022, ultimately settled the case with the Trump Justice Department in 2019 and agreed to pay an $850 million fine.
‘There must have been a lot of people asking why DOJ wasn’t moving forward with any charges related to the giant bribery scheme in Uzbekistan because so many people from so many countries knew that DOJ and a dozen other countries were investigating it starting in 2011,’ said the source who told The Post about the Moscow embassy tipoff.
‘It is possible that someone inside the FBI reported it in 2020 because they were disgusted that the investigation had been stymied for so many years.’
Yevtushenkov, who until recently controlled large Russian military contractors, and another Russian billionaire linked to real estate shopping with Hunter, former Moscow first lady Yelena Baturina, have avoided the Biden administration’s sanctions against Russia’s business elite over the 14-month-old invasion of Ukraine- and also managed to avoid sanctions during the Donbas War between Russian proxies and Ukraine that broke out in 2014.
There are other possible explanations for the mysterious FBI document.
A former White House stenographer, Mike McCormick, told The Post that he submitted two tips to the bureau regarding Joe Biden’s alleged role in his son’s board position with Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
McCormick’s two complaints do not fit the timeframe in Comer’s subpoena, though it’s possible a similar one could have been submitted by someone else. The ex-stenographer said that he called the FBI and left a voicemail in November 2020 and then submitted an online form outlining his allegations in February 2023.
McCormick recently alleged that Biden and White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan engaged in a corrupt conspiracy to supply US aid to Ukraine’s natural gas industry within a week of Hunter Biden joining the board of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma. Sullivan told The Post that he denies wrongdoing.
Burisma paid Hunter up to $1 million per year to serve on its board beginning in April 2014 and three days after Hunter reportedly joined the board, Sullivan, then a vice presidential aide, told reporters on Air Force Two en route to Kyiv that Joe Biden would push for US support to Ukraine’s natural gas industry, which later that year was awarded $50 million by Congress.
The FBI also received a very public tip from Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski weeks before the November 2020 presidential election.
Bobulinski met with FBI agents at bureau headquarters in October 2020 to discuss and provide evidence — later than the document described by Comer and Grassley.
Bobulinski said that he met twice with Joe Biden in 2017 after he left office as vice president to discuss a business venture with CEFC China Energy, which a Washington Post review of laptop records found transferred at least $4.8 million in 2017 and 2018 to Hunter and James Biden.
A May 2017 email from former Hunter Biden business associate James Gilliar said the 'big guy' would get 10% of the deal and both Gilliar and Bobulinski have identified Joe Biden as the big guy.
One source told The Post that the newly revealed corruption allegation doesn’t pertain to China. However, the Chinese ventures involved business acquisitions and associations linked to other countries.
In a different Chinese dealing, Hunter Biden cofounded investment fund BHR Partners with Chinese state-backed entities within two weeks of arriving with his father in Beijing for an official 2013 visit. BHR facilitated a 2016 deal in which a Chinese firm bought a Congolese cobalt mine from US and Canadian companies.
The CEFC venture, meanwhile, may also have started during Biden’s vice presidency. Vuk Jeremic, a former foreign minister of Serbia and president of the United Nations General Assembly, appears to have helped Biden family members connect with CEFC leaders in late 2015.
The FBI and Justice Department have acknowledged receipt of Comer’s subpoena and an attached letter from Comer and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).
The State Department did not immediately comment on the alleged 2012 tipoff, nor did the FBI say whether the tip was passed along to the bureau. A spokesman for Yevtushenkov did not respond to a request for comment.
Comer and Grassley identified the whistleblower’s alert as a potential major breakthrough.
‘Based on the alleged specificity within the document, it would appear that the DOJ and the FBI have enough information to determine the truth and accuracy of the information contained within it,’ they said in announcing the subpoena.
The congressional Republicans said ‘it remains unclear what steps, if any, were taken to investigate the matter.’
The whistleblower who informed congressional Republicans of the alleged document is a different person than the IRS whistleblower who came forward last month to allege ‘preferential treatment’ and false testimony to Congress by Attorney General Merrick Garland about the criminal investigation of first son Hunter Biden for tax fraud and related crimes.
White House spokesman Ian Sams sought to downplay the development on Wednesday.
‘For going on five years now, Republicans in Congress have been lobbing unfounded, unproven, politically-motivated attacks against the President and his family without offering evidence for their claims or evidence of decisions influenced by anything other than U.S. interests,’ Sams said.
‘That’s because they prefer floating anonymous innuendo, amplified by the megaphone of their allies in rightwing media, to get attention and try to distract and deflect from their own unpopular ideas and lack of solutions to the issues the American people actually care about.’
Sams added, ‘When it comes to President Biden’s personal finances, anybody can take a look: he has offered an unprecedented level of transparency, releasing a total of 25 years of tax returns to the American public.’
However, Biden has not released information that would show the source of more than $13 million in income in 2017 and 2018 that he and first lady Jill Biden routed through entities known as S Corporations to lower the amount of taxes paid to support the federal healthcare program Medicare.”
Well, folks- that’s what real journalism looks like- especially if you took the time to wade through it all. Thank you, Steven Nelson of the New York Post!
THIS is why Biden will eventually be impeached- AND permanently removed from the White House.
Love you all.

The inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president took place just three days later on January 20, 2017. What mischief did Joe the Crook need to accomplish in Ukraine as his stint as Vice President was about to expire?
