Vote by Mail Fraud

Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Oct 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

It has long been a joke in Chicago that once you voted in 1920, you keep voting long past you are dead and buried. It’s your civil duty in Chicago. So far, a total of 353 of the 3,141 counties in America located in 29 of the nation’s 50 states already have 1.8 million MORE registered voters than residents, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.

The non-profit government watchdog compared the registration data available for 37 states with the U.S. Census Bureau’s most recently available American Community Survey (ACS) numbers for the period 2014-2018 on a county-by-county basis.

The Democrats have been pushing to vote by mail and stay safe using this COVID-19 to also screw up and deny a fair election. We cover the number of states that no longer require you to provide ID to vote and California is #1 on that list.

Will we EVER know the truth about the 2020 election?

Sunday Talks: Senator Ron Johnson Discusses Bribery and National Security Threats from Hunter Biden Laptop and Joe Biden Payment Emails…

Posted origially on The Conservative Tree House on October 18, 2020 by sundance

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson appears on Sunday morning with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the supreme court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett as well as the breaking information about Biden family financial networks taking payments and payoffs from foreign governments to influence U.S. policy.

Will Biden Be Tested?

It’s hard to believe, but Joe Biden is as bad as Hillary Clinton. Both are war criminals. Both are colossal liars. Both have obvious health issues.

Here’s a man who gropes women and children as he sniffs their hair. For decades he eagerly sold influence to benefit himself and his extended family. He supports war, harsh prison sentences for drug offenders, globalism, and socialism.

The Democrats have fielded an abysmally weak candidate in Biden. His son Hunter is a crack head and pedophile. Joe is a pedophile with a cracked head.

Joe is an empty vessel for Kamala Harris and she’s the one who will be the one carrying out the Obama’s destruction of America should Biden win the presidency.

If elected, Joe Biden will become our first dementia-addled president.

Joe has long had moral dementia.

Unbelievable – Facebook’s Lead Executive on Election Policy Was Vice-President Joe Biden’s Advisor to Ukraine…

Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 17, 2020 by sundance

Hat Tip Fool Nelson – Put this in the stunning conflict of interest file that is truly jaw-dropping.  This is just unreal.

Anna Makanju is the Facebook executive in charge of “election integrity on the platform”; and guess what her job was before that position… “Previously, she was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia to former US Vice President Joe Biden”. (citation)

[Source Link – (likely to soon disappear)]

That’s right folks, the Facebook executive currently blocking all of the negative evidence of Hunter and Joe Biden’s corrupt activity in Ukraine is the same person who was coordinating the corrupt activity between the Biden family payoffs and Ukraine.

You just cannot make this stuff up folks.

Hunter Biden Under Scrutiny for Business Deals With Chinese Exec With Links to Military

Hunter Biden allegedly sought to pocket millions from deals involving a Chinese energy giant with ties to the Chinese military, according to emails obtained by the New York Post.

Re-Posted from THE EPOCH TIMES BY FRANK FANG AND CATHY HE October 16, 2020 Updated: October 17, 2020 Print

An alleged email from James Gilliar of the international consultancy J2cR that was sent to Biden on May 13, 2017 detailed “remuneration packages” for six people in an unspecified deal apparently involving the now-bankrupt Chinese oil giant CEFC China Energy. Biden, who is the second son of former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden, was identified as “Chair/Vice Chair” of a new company, “depending on agreement with CEFC.” His pay would be “850.”

Gilliar did not immediately return a request for comment about his involvement.

The email also mentions a “provisional agreement” under which a person identified as “H,” an apparent reference to Hunter Biden, would hold 20 percent “equity” in the new company, as well as 10 percent “held…for the big guy.” The email doesn’t identify who the “big guy” is.

Gilliar also said he would be “happy to raise any detail with Zang if there is [sic] shortfalls ?,” in an apparent reference to Zang Jianjun, a former executive director at CEFC.

Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy was China’s largest privately-held oil company before it was caught in Beijing’s crosshairs in 2018. The oil conglomerate made billions of dollars in Russia, eastern Europe, and parts of Africa, while its now-disgraced founder and chairman Ye Jianming fostered cozy ties with high-level Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials.

Ye has been missing since early 2018 after he was placed under investigation by the Chinese regime for “suspected economic crimes” and detained. A state-owned enterprise took control of CEFC in March 2019, and the firm declared bankruptcy early this year, according to Chinese media Caixin.

In a separate email Biden sent to Hong Kong financier Dong Gongwen on Aug. 2, 2017, Biden reveals that he previously had a three-year agreement with CEFC that would pay him $10 million per year “for introductions alone.”

Dong was Ye’s business associate and executed transactions for Ye’s companies, according to a recent Senate report.

But Ye later sweetened the deal, giving Biden 50 percent ownership of a holding company named “Hudson West,” with Ye owning the other half, the email stated.

“Consulting fees is one piece of our income stream but the reason this proposal by the chairman was so much more interesting to me and my family is that we would also be partners inn [sic] the equity and profits of the JV’s [joint venture’s] investments,” Biden wrote.

An Aug. 1, 2017 photo obtained by The New York Post of a hand-drawn organization chart outlined Hudson West’s ownership. It showed that the company was controlled 50/50 by two entities that were ultimately controlled by Biden and a person identified as “Chairman” respectively.

The Senate report also showed that Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco PC, was one of two owners of a company called Hudson West III, which has since been dissolved.

In September 2017, Biden and Dong opened a line of credit at a bank under Hudson West III, the report said. Credit cards issued under the account were made available to Biden, his uncle James Biden, and James’ wife Sara Biden. They purchased more than $100,000 worth of “extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels, and restaurants,” it said.

The emails obtained by the Post were allegedly from the hard drive of a laptop left at a Mac repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware in April 2019, that was never retrieved. The FBI then allegedly seized the laptop, and the repair shop owner later gave a copy of the hard drive to former New York City mayor Rudy Guiliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney. Guiliani then gave the contents to the Post. Guiliani said he spent three weeks authenticating the materials on the drive. The Epoch Times has not seen a copy of the files and could not independently verify this claim.

Joe Biden’s campaign did not return a request for comment.

Fallen Oil Tycoon

Ye had extensive ties to the Chinese military.

According to the Senate report, Ye served as deputy secretary-general of the China Association for International Friendly Contacts (CAIFC) from 2003 to 2005.

The association is a front group for the Chinese military’s former General Political Department, a political organ within the Central Military Commission—the CCP agency that controls the armed forces, according to a 2018 report published by the Congress-appointed U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC). That department was replaced by a new agency called the Political Work Department in 2016.

“CAIFC has additional ties to the Ministries of State Security, Civil Affairs, and Foreign Affairs, and it is a platform for deploying undercover intelligence gatherers,” the report said.

USCC added: “In addition to sending intelligence collectors abroad, CAIFC sponsors trips to China by foreign military and veteran groups, businesspeople, and former politicians which typically include contact with hand-picked PLA personnel,” referring to the People’s Liberation Army, the official name of the Chinese regime’s military.

Caixin published an extensive report on CEFC in March 2018. It stated that CEFC’s Party secretary, Jiang Chunyu, was a retired Chinese armed police officer. All major firms in China are required to set up Party units within their offices.

Jiang was also once head of a military police school located in Shanghai. According to Chinese news portal Sina, the school was combined with other institutes to form the PLA Nanjing Political College in August 2017.

According to Caixin, Ye was also chairman of the board at a company called Shanghai Zhenrong Energy Corporation from 2007 to 2008. Shanghai Zhenrong was jointly established by three companies; two of them were CEFC and Zhuhai Zhenrong Corporation.

Zhuhai Zhenrong was sanctioned by the U.S. government in July 2019 for engaging in oil transactions with Iran, in violation of U.S. sanctions on the Iranian regime.

According to Caixin, CEFC established a Shanghai Charity Fund in 2011, hiring Li Guangjin, a retired political officer from the PLA’s Shanghai Garrison, as the fund’s chairman. Additionally, Wang Hongyuan, a former bureau chief at the General Office of the Central Military Commission, became the fund’s standing director.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau disclosed that several CEFC executives had ties to the Chinese military and the Chinese regime, in its monthly magazine Prospect & Exploration published in July 2018.

For instance, the magazine pointed out that Xiong Fengsheng, CEFC’s director and Party secretary of the company’s discipline commission at the time, was once head of the PLA Air Force’s 461 Hospital, located in the northeastern city of Jilin.

Some CEFC executives previously worked in the Chinese government or at state-owned firms.

One of CEFC’s deputy presidents, Jiang Mingsheng, once worked at China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China. He was also a one-time Party secretary while working at the Shanghai branch of the China Merchants Bank, according to the magazine.

Pan Zhigang, an economist at CEFC, was once office director at the International Cooperation Center of China’s National Development and Reform Commission, a state planning agency.

Biden had previously told The New Yorker in a July 2019 article that he didn’t consider Ye to be a “shady character at all,” and characterized his investigation and detention as “bad luck.”

Ye also established a nonprofit based in Hong Kong and Arlington, Virginia, called the China Energy Fund Committee, which had “special consultative status” with the United Nations.

The organization’s general secretary was Hong Kong businessman Patrick Ho. Ho was also Biden’s client at Owasco, according to the Senate report.

In March 2019, Ho was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison for paying millions in bribes to the presidents of Chad and Uganda to secure oil rights for CEFC.

On March 22, 2018, months before Ho was to go on trial, a $1 million payment was sent from Hudson West III to Owasco for Ho’s legal representation, the Senate report found.

The Post obtained an “Attorney Engagement Letter” executed in September 2017, in which Ho agreed to pay Biden $1 million as a retainer for legal services. Biden told The New Yorker in 2019 that he agreed to represent Ho after Ye told him that he was concerned that “U.S. law-enforcement agencies were investigating” Ho.

Ho was convicted of money laundering, violating the Foreign Corrupt Practice Act, and other charges. He was freed in June this year, with the judge shortening his incarceration after he demonstrated good behavior.

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated when the laptop was dropped off at the computer repair shop. It was dropped off in April 2019. It also incorrectly stated James Biden’s relationship with Hunter Biden. James is Joe Biden’s brother; Hunter’s uncle.

Fox News Confirms Biden/China Payoff – Rudy Giuliani Talks to Lou Dobbs….

Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 16, 2020 by sundance

In a breaking news story tonight, Fox News has confirmed with one of the Hunter Biden email recipients that the purpose of the content was setting up payments to Hunter Biden knowing the money would be funneled to his father, Joe Biden [SEE HERE]

In related news Rudy Giuliani appears on Fox News with Lou Dobbs to explain the content of the electronic files and the institutional blackout to keep the information hidden:

(Via Fox News) One of the people on an explosive email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden has corroborated the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm.

One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of “remuneration packages” for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.

The email includes a note that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.

Sources told Fox News that “the big guy” is a reference to the former vice president. The New York Post initially published the emails and other controversial messages that Fox News has also obtained. (read more)

Rudy Giuliani Outlines the Unreleased Evidence Against Joe and Hunter Biden For Taking Payments from Foreign Governments…

Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 16, 2020 by sundance

Direct evidence implicating former Vice President Joe Biden in a pay-for-play corruption scandal will be released to the public 10 days prior to the 2020 election, Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, told Daily Caller’s senior White House correspondent Christian Datoc in an exclusive interview.

The former New York City mayor spoke with Datoc for a half-hour in New York City Thursday evening about all of the new allegations raised by emails and text messages alleged to have been pulled from a hard drive previously owned by Hunter Biden. WATCH:

Joe Biden Lied – Emails Show Hunter Biden and Joe Biden Met Together With Ukraine Energy Executives…

Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 14, 2020 by sundance

Former Vice President Joe Biden previously said he did not have anything to do with Hunter Biden’s sketchy dealings with Ukraine energy company Burisma.  Today the New York Post has released specific documents showing that claim was absolutely false.

New York Post – […] The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.

An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer. (more)

The emails come from a laptop computer reportedly dropped off for repair in Delaware that was never picked up.  The Delaware FBI took custody of the computer and it was eventually turned over to the U.S. Attorney Office in Delaware in December of 2019.  However, there was a duplicate of the hard-drive made by the repair shop owner.

It appears the FBI took custody of the Hunter Biden laptop with the intent to bury the information contained within it.  The laptop was then provided to the DOJ in Delaware, under the auspices of a grand jury subpoena; however, so far no action has been taken.

Everything Joe Biden and the Obama administration previously denied was taking place with their Ukraine engagement is now documented as having taken place.  The eventual outcome was Vice-President Joe Biden threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. financial aid to Ukraine if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor and drop their investigation of Burisma. Ukraine fired the prosecutor and dropped the investigation.

In addition to the emails there are reportedly very compromising videos and pictures on the laptop that could be used to leverage or blackmail the Biden family.

[…] The FBI referred questions about its seizure of the laptop and hard drive to the Delaware US Attorney’s Office, where a spokesperson said, “My office can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation.”

Hunter Biden’s lawyer refused to comment on the specifics but instead attacked Giuliani. (link)

One of the pictures of Hunter Biden shows him sleeping with a crack-pipe.   Obviously it wasn’t Hunter Biden who took the picture so the question becomes were these pictures taken with the intent to carry leverage and blackmail material over Vice-President Joe Biden, either at the time or for use later on.

There are also reported pictures of Hunter Biden engaged in explicit sex acts with prostitutes which would align with the gathering of blackmail material.

Obviously this story is explosive and presents a litany of questions that need to be asked.  However, the media is and social media tech censors are working overtime to block the story from surfacing.

Did the FBI and U.S. Attorney in Delaware bury the laptop in order to stop the information from surfacing?  Was U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr aware this laptop and content was in the custody of the Delaware USAO?

Who took the pictures and videos of Hunter Biden and what where they going to be used for?  Was this a corrupt Ukrainian effort to compromise U.S. officials; or are there Russian interests involved?

So many questions….

So many questions….

Are Oleg Deripaska’s “red sparrows” involved?

Nancy Pelosi Has Public Condescending Meltdown During CNN Interview…

Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 13, 2020 by sundance

The hubris and condescension in this video snippet are quite remarkable, especially when we consider that Wolf Blitzer is a fellow traveler, friend and ally of Pelosi, and professional narrative engineer for the political left.  [There’s a shorter version below the fold]

After being asked a question about her refusal to accept a compromise $1.8 trillion spending package for COVID-19 economic impacts, Nancy Pelosi has a total meltdown.  Pelosi is so unfamiliar with even gentle push-back, she cannot fathom an alternate point of position that does not carry exclusive democrat political benefit.  This is wild:

Steve Bullock, Very Bad For Montana,

SUPER PAC Money is Pouring in to Montana

Big money from out of state donors and super pacs is pouring into Montana. The Democrats, flush with cash from Big Tech and Wall Street, are flooding Montana with their propaganda.  Montana’s senator Steve Daines is up for re-election and DC Democrats hope to pick up his senate seat by running failed Governor Steve Bullock.

Bullock dances to Pelosi’s tune and likes to pretend he’s a Montanan.  Montana is tired of Bullock and his mask mandates and higher taxes.  Just another DC Democrat wolf in sheep’s plaid clothing.

Bullock has displayed a hostility toward women. According to the NRSC:

  • Gov. Angela McLean, who Bullock forced out of her job
  • Kevin O’Brien’s victims, who Bullock didn’t speak out about, allowing for O’Brien to take another job only to harass again
  • Meg O’Leary, who was Bullock’s Commerce Director and allegedly had a relationship with the governor
  • Wendie Fredrickson, who was a former state employee that was pushed out of her job because she raised concerns about fraud
  • George Washington University student, who alleged Bullock grabbed her butt at a Democrat gala in Washington, DC
  • Elsie Arntzen, who is Montana’s female Superintendent of Public Instruction who has alleged that Bullock is unwilling to work with her because she is a female
  • The women in Bullock’s office, who he only pays 84 cents for every dollar he pays men, despite repeatedly celebrating “Women’s Equality Day.”

And the most recent controversy  was Steve Bullock coming out in favor of  packing  the Supreme Court in his recent debate with Senator Daines.

A recent poll released last week put Daines ahead by 9 points over Bullock. We predict after Bullock’s Court packing faux pas, Daines lead will increase.

In 2016 Montana gave Trump a 20 point win over Clinton, we expect things to stay the same in Montana and Trump will win the state once again. Let’s keep Senator Daines in his seat and send Bullock packing …and we don’t mean the court!
