Joe Biden to issue executive order on first day in office to stop 'ethics conflicts' with sleazy son Hunter, Democratic frontrunner's campaign says as questions mount over business dealings
Posted by: Skidmark || 06/21/2019 00:00 || Comments || Link || E-Mail|| [6472 views] Top|| File under:

#1  A used crack pipe, credit cards, a Delaware Attorney General badge, US Secret Service business cards, two ID’s belonging to Hunter Biden, son of former VP Joe Biden were found in a Hertz rental car in Arizona.

A 28-year-old Arkansas woman is claiming that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden is the father of her 10-month-old child — and she’s suing to prove it.

Lunden Alexis Roberts claims Hunter Biden fathered her child while he was in a relationship with his own late brother’s wife (former sister-in-law), Hallie Biden.

Inbreds meet the inbreds, we're a screw our own family la la la. Even money as to Bill Clinton being Hunter's real father. But then again in Hillary's own words, "does it really matter"?

#2  Dang! From the headline, I was sure it was The Bee.

#3  I also thought it had to be the Babylon Bee. I still have a hard time believing this is a serious article.

But I guess Joe is in real trouble over all this.

Arkansas woman sues Hunter Biden for child support claiming he fathered her 10-month-old baby during his relationship with his late brother's widow
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Lunden Roberts, 28, claims she had a relationship with Biden in 2017 and that she gave birth to his baby in August last year

  • She filed a petition in court in Batesville, Alabama, last month asking for child support

  • Biden was dating his brother Beau's widow, Hallie, at the time of their affair

  • They split in April this year and a month later, he married South African woman Melissa Cohen

  • Lunden does not say how long their relationship lasted or how serious it was

  • Her attorney says she is not politically motivated and that she only wants what is fair for 'their' baby
Tut, tut. Dreadful, simply dreadful. Does the DNA test agree that he is the father and she is the mother of the little tot? More to the point, why should we, the voters, care about the adventures — true or imaginary — of an adult child of a has-been politician?

#4  Hunter has quite a bit of China and Ukraine money, he shouldn't have any problem paying support for Baby Doe (8/20/18) if paternity is established.

Member of Polish Parliament Invites Ocasio-Cortez to Visit Real Concentration Camps
[PJ] On Thursday morning Dominik Tarczynski, who is a member of Parliament in Poland, invited AOC to visit my ancestral homeland and "study the concentration camps" so that she can learn how they differ from the detention centers.

#1  She take Dominik Tarczynski's offer. Then she should go to our border and spend some time with the BP and then ICE. Maybe she won't sound like such a blithering idiot although I doubt it.

#2  I'm afraid, JQC, that would be like an admission she didn't already know everything from her college education and bar-tendering experience.
Posted by: Bobby || 06/21/2019 10:11 Comments || Top||

#3  Careful! You forget that if she actually learned something useful that she would have to stop blathering about it.

#4  She wouldn't understand. Where are the prisoners?
Posted by: European Conservative || 06/21/2019 18:43 Comments || Top||

#5  I am very tempted to ask, "Can we make it one way?". But I don't think even she deserves that.

#6  Possibly too generous, EC, like so many modern Germans. But not me. ;-)

Loves Salem and smallpox and Attucks,
Swaps tips on Applied App-o-Matics,
And given the coven
That's rubbin' her nubbin,
An expert in oven mathematics.

No diss to Crispus -- tea with the brother and his pals would be a notch or two down from dinner with Jesus in my book -- just needed a rhyme.

Scrambling for Relevance, Steve Bullock Enlists ‘Hanoi Jane’
[FREEBEACON] Gov. Steve Bullock (D., Mont.) was one of the last random white dudes to announce their candidacy for president in the 2020 Democratic primary. He didn't even make the cut for the first round of debates next week in Miami, and he's struggling to stay relevant, or to at least pull even with Beto O'Rourke;
...Kennedyeque businessman, musician, skateboard artiste, and politician who represented Texas' 16th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. Beto is a Latino nickname for people whose names end in "erto," like "Roberto" or "Alberto." He is seeking the Dem nomination for President in 2020 because he has nice hair and lots of teeth. He was born into a local political family in El Paso, Texas and is a graduate of a prep school and Columbia University, which is not in Texas. In 2005, he was elected to the El Paso City Council. He was elected to Congress in 2012 after defeating eight-term incumbent Silvestre Reyes in the Democratic primary. He declined to seek re-election in 2018, instead running for the Senate against Republican Ted Cruz, running a campaign that drew national attention because of his skateboarding skills. A few months after he lost, he announced his campaign for President...
, an aspiration that is becoming less significant with each passing day.

Bullock is doing what most Democratic candidates do when their campaigns desperately need an injection of cash and/or cachet: He's going to Hollywood. The governor will be in Los Angeles later this week to attend a fundraiser hosted by "Hanoi Jane" Fonda, the former celebrity actress best known for gallivanting with enemy troops during the Vietnam War, who recently said she was no longer "proud" of America following the election of Donald J. Trump.

The News Agency that Dare Not be Named reports:

The Academy Award-winning actress, activist and fitness guru is among a handful of Los Angeles agents, producers and lawyers hosting the event at the home of model and professional golfer Anna Chervin and her talent-agent husband, Ted, according to an invitation obtained by The News Agency that Dare Not be Named.

Bullock, a cowboy-boot-wearing executive from a rural state won by President Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
, may seem like an unusual benefactor of campaign cash from members of the Hollywood elite often associated with far-left causes. But his success enacting some progressive priorities such as expanding Medicaid, combined with his distinction as the only White House contender to get reelected at the same time his state broke for Trump, has led some donors to take a closer look.

Bullock has received financial backing from other Hollywood celebs, including Jeff Bridges, the Academy Award-winning actor best known for his role as Dr. Mark Powell in K-PAX.

#1  She's still alive?

#2  Yes, unfortunately.

#3  John Kerry has started the ball rolling. It is at least possible someone like AOC will repeat the 'Hanoi Jane' event by visiting Terran.

#4  Good. Waste your money on this loser

#5  I literally can't count the number of VFWs we have been in that have that's bitch's face as plastic splash piss guards in bathroom urinals. Guessing it's not just a Minnesota thing.

#6  Doubtful that "Hanoi Jane" will give him much of a boost. His second hurdle is getting past the "My Name is Nobody" label.
