Irony Alert: Joe Biden to Tackle Political Corruption With New ‘5 Pillar Strategy’

The Biden administration Monday unveiled a “5-pillar strategy” to combat corruption in the U.S. and abroad, including the same type of “pay-to-play” corruption the Biden family has become famous for over the years.

Joe Biden—also known as “the Big Guy” who got a 10 percent cut in his family’s grifting schemes, according to his son’s laptop—said in a statement in June that he would establish a program to fight against corruption as a crucial national security interest. “Corruption threatens United States national security, economic equity, global antipoverty and development efforts, and democracy itself,” he said at the time.

The regime’s five pillar strategy involves, “modernizing, coordinating and resourcing U.S. government efforts to fight corruption; curbing illicit finance; holding corrupt actors accountable; preserving and strengthening the multilateral anti-corruption architecture; and improving diplomatic engagement and leveraging foreign assistance resources to fight corruption,” Fox Business reports.

The strategy document lays out several different types of corruption that the regime will target in their investigations.

  • Grand corruption: when political elites steal large sums of public funds or otherwise abuse power for personal or political advantage.
  • Administrative corruption: the abuse of entrusted power for private gain — usually by low- to mid-level government officials — in interactions with citizens and the private sector, including to skirt official regulations and extort citizens in exchange for their basic services.
  • Kleptocracy: a government controlled by officials who use political power to appropriate the wealth of its nation. Can include state capture.
  • State capture: when private entities improperly and corruptly influence a country’s decision-making process for their own benefit.
  • Strategic corruption: when a government weaponizes corrupt practices as a tenet of its foreign policy.

 

If the administration’s plan seems to have a whiff of hypocrisy to it, that’s because the Biden family has spent decades grifting off of Joe Biden’s political career, first when he was a U.S. senator from Delaware, then when he was vice president of the United States—and Joe Biden himself allegedly got a 10 percent cut in the deals.

According to an excerpt in the NY Post from Miranda Devine’s new book, Laptop From Hell, Biden joined his son, Hunter, and brother, Jim, for a meeting with their prospective business partner Tony Bobulinski at the Los Angeles Beverly Hilton hotel in 2017, when he was in town for a global conference.

On May 2, 2017, at around 11 p.m. Biden — then just months removed from serving as vice president — sauntered into the Beverly Hilton lobby to vet Bobulinski.

Prior to the meeting, Devine wrote, Jim Biden explained to Bobulinski that the meeting would be strictly “high level.” Hunter Biden added, “We will not go into any detail about the business. I just want my dad to be comfortable with you.”

During the ensuing meeting, Joe Biden and Bobulinski shared their backgrounds, got acquainted with one another, and spoke in generalities about the prospective deal with now-defunct Chinese government-linked energy conglomerate CEFC China.

It reportedly went well and resulted in Biden saying, “My son and my brother trust you emphatically, so I trust you.”

In the book, Devine explained that Biden was the “final decision-maker” and that “nothing important was done without his agreement.”

And so, with Joe’s approval, the plan to incorporate SinoHawk Holdings LLC moved forward. It would be a global investment firm kick-started with $10 million in Chinese money split 50/50 between Biden’s business group and CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming.

An email obtained by the Post last year detailed the “remuneration packages” for six individuals involved in the Biden family’s overseas business griftocracy.

The “provisional agreement” outlined in the email for the distribution of equity included “20” for “Jim,” “20” for “H [Hunter],” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”

Before the 2020 election, Bobulinski revealed that the “big guy” mentioned in the explosive email was unquestionably Joe Biden, but the corporate media looked the other way.

According to Devine, the family protected Joe Biden by keeping him away from the details of deal with China, so he could claim “plausible deniability.” Indeed, during the 2020 election, Biden falsely claimed that he had “never spoken to [his ]son about his overseas business dealings.”

“The Bidens made a full-sized scandal disappear, with the help of media members who did not want the public to see it,” constitutional law Professor Johnathan Turley recently opined at Fox News. “Twitter banned links to reports about the laptop until after Biden was elected president. The media dismissed the story as a ‘conspiracy theory’ with some mocking to boot.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday refused to comment on Hunter Biden’s alleged divestment from an investment fund controlled by Chinese state-owned entities or confirm that Hunter’s infamous lost laptop is authentic when pressed by a NY Post reporter.

Hunter Biden’s attorney said last month — less than a week after President Biden’s virtual summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping — that his client had finally divested his 10 percent stake in the firm, called BHR Partners, but offered no further details on the identity of the buyer or the transaction terms.

The Post asked Psaki at Monday’s White House briefing, in light of the Biden administration’s new report addressing corruption, if she would “commit to basic transparency about that transaction, including the name of the buyer, the dollar amount and the timing.”

“The president’s son is not an employee of the federal government,” Psaki replied airily. “So I’d point you to his representatives.”

As for Devine’s book, “I’ve neither had the time or the interest in exploring or reading the book,” Psaki intoned, before quickly moving on to another reporter.

When the Post reporter fired back that “the first son’s attorney didn’t give any information on the transaction,” Psaki repeated herself and shut down his line of questioning.
