Ukraine Prosecutor Testifies That Joe Biden Got Him Fired for Looking Into Hunter Biden

The prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden’s suspicious Ukrainian business deals says that VP Joe Biden got him fired from the case to protect his son.

The prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden’s suspicious business deals in Ukraine now says that Vice President Joe Biden got him fired from the case to protect his son.

One of the important details of this whole Ukraine situation that the media is desperately trying to hide from the American people is the strange and sudden entrance into the fuel industry of Biden’s son. Hunter Biden had absolutely no experience in the gas industry, but after flying abroad with his father when Joe was vice president, suddenly Hunter Biden was making $50,000 a month from a deal with a troubled Ukrainian energy company.

Worse, when a prosecutor in Ukraine began looking into this suspicious deal, VP Biden used the power of his office in the Obama administration to force Ukraine to fire the prosecutor to protect Hunter Biden from investigation.

Indeed, this is all so suspicious that even virulent never-Trumper Philip Klein says that it makes sense to be suspicious of Hunter Biden’s deal and Joe Biden’s attempt to get his son out of trouble. Klein recently said this: “Hunter accepted a $50k a month gig from a Ukranian energy co under cloud of investigation despite no relevant experience as his dad was the point person on U.S. policy toward Ukraine. Seems like it’s worth pressing Biden on whether he thinks this was ok.”

For his part, Biden insists that when he was Vice Resident he threatened to hold back a billion dollars in U.S. foreign aid to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor looking into his son, not because the prosecutor was looking into his son’s likely corruption, but because that prosecutor himself was corrupt.

Unfortunately for the former vice president, there is a lot of documents that seem to conflict with Biden’s claims.

According to John Solomon, it looks more like Biden used his power as Obama’s V.P. to take the pressure off Hunter’s Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.

As Solomon wrote:

For instance, Burisma’s American legal representatives met with Ukrainian officials just days after Biden forced the firing of the country’s chief prosecutor and offered “an apology for dissemination of false information by U.S. representatives and public figures” about the Ukrainian prosecutors, according to the Ukrainian government’s official memo of the meeting. The effort to secure that meeting began the same day the prosecutor’s firing was announced.

In addition, Burisma’s American team offered to introduce Ukrainian prosecutors to Obama administration officials to make amends, according to that memo and the American legal team’s internal emails.

Even more damning, Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor in question, now says in a sworn affidavit that he was fired from the Hunter Biden investigation after VP Biden demanded that he be fired.

In a newly sworn affidavit prepared for a European court, Shokin testified that when he was fired in March 2016, he was told the reason was that Biden was unhappy about the Burisma investigation. “The truth is that I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings, a natural gas firm active in Ukraine and Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was a member of the Board of Directors,” Shokin testified.

“On several occasions President Poroshenko asked me to have a look at the case against Burisma and consider the possibility of winding down the investigative actions in respect of this company but I refused to close this investigation,” Shokin added.

Looks like an illicit quid pro quo was committed by one of America’s highest elected officials. But it was Joe Biden, not Donald Trump who perpetrated the act.

Liberal Couple Runs Bike-Riding Teen Trump Supporters Off the Road

A liberal couple driving their car have been arrested for driving two teens off the road because the kids had Trump stickers on their bicycles.

Published

on

A liberal couple driving their car in Indiana have been arrested for driving two teens off the road because the kids had Trump flags on their bicycles.

The police in Hobart, Indiana, arrested Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith, 18, after reviewing Snapchat video that showed the July 22 incident, according to NWI.com.

According to the police investigation, Smith can be heard taunting the teens and saying, “Y’all scared, just like your president … America is not great, (expletive).”

Smith is also heard asking the teens if they are Trump supporters, and they admit that they are.

“Perry-Jones and Smith have each been charged with two counts of intimidation and criminal recklessness, all felonies. They were also charged with one count each of theft and criminal mischief, which are misdemeanors, court records show,” the site says.

The Hobart police charged the pair of reckless driving and making threats.

Smith is heard making threats and seen aiming his car at the bicycling teens.

Snapchat video obtained by police shows the Malibu, driven by Perry-Jones, swerve the wheels sharply “as if he saw the boys and wanted to hit them with the vehicle” while yelling, “‘Y’all better get home,'” court records state.

Perry-Jones and Smith allegedly yelled expletives at the two teen boys and demanded that they “pull that flag down” in the video, police said.

Perry-Jones is also accused of threatening the kids for calling 911 on them. Perry-Jones added that he would just tell the police that the kids used a racial slur against him, and the kids would be charged with a hate crime.

Smith also took away a Trump flag flying from their bikes.

Police said that the delay between the July incident and the final filing of charges this year was because they were attempting to get a warrant to take possession o the Snapchat video.

But once again we see that it is liberals that are the violent ones in America today.

Chicago Wins Award as Most Corrupt City in America

The City of Chicago has once again won the dubious honor of being the most corrupt city in America.

Published

on

The City of Chicago has once again won the dubious honor of being the most corrupt city in America. Meanwhile, Illinois has been deemed the third most corrupt state.

The assessment comes from an annual report by the University of Illinois at Chicago and co-authored by UIC professor Dick Simpson a former Chicago alderman. the study is based on public corruption statistics published by the U.S. Department of Justice, according to Block Club Chicago.

The report notes that 13 public officials in the Chicago district have been convicted on charges of corruption. It isn’t just the city, either. 300 suburban politicians have gone to jail over 40 years, Simpson said.

The rest of Illinois had five more officials convicted on corruption charges last year.

Chicago has been in complete control by Democrats for nearly 100 years and Illinois for 30.

The city and state have seen some of the most convictions of public officials between 1976 and 2018.

“During that time period, Chicago had a total of 1,750 public corruption convictions. For comparison, Los Angeles has seen 1,547 cases, while the New York City borough of Manhattan saw 1,360,” the website reported.

“Our study shows that Chicago remains the most corrupt city in the United States with 1,750 total public corruption convictions from 1976 through 2018. This number is even more troubling when compared to the second-place city, Los Angeles, which has had 200 fewer convictions in that time period,” the study’s author said.

According to the DOJ data, on a per capita basis, Illinois ranked as the third-most corrupt state.

Illinois remains the third-most corrupt state, based on the formula that compares the number of each area’s corruption convictions with its population, according to the report issued by Simpson and his students.

While federal convictions for public corruption tapered “slightly” in 2018, since then there has been an increase in news reports about investigations launched during that yea

Illinois was beat out for the number one slot only by the District of Columbia and the state of Louisiana.

“The District of Columbia was No. 1, while Louisiana was No. 2. The states of New York, California, Texas and Florida each had more total corruption convictions than Illinois, but their populations are larger, placing them lower in the ranking,” the site said.

Liberal Slams Those Saying Sanders Fans are Violent, Steve Scalise Reminds He was Shot By a Sanders Man

Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot and nearly killed by a Bernie Sanders operative, dropped a bomb on leftist Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison.

Published

Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot and nearly killed by a Bernie Sanders operative, dropped a bomb on leftist Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison who asked for anyone to show him an example of a Sanders fan being violent.

The first round in a losing fight was posted by extremist, Muslim former Representative Kieth Ellison of Minnesota.

Ellison, who is now Minnesota’s Attorney General, got on his high horse and asked: “I have never seen @BernieSanders supporters being unusually mean or rude. Can someone send me an example of a “Bernie Bro” being bad. Also, are we holding all candidates responsible for the behavior of some of their supporters? Waiting to hear.”

But Rep. Steve Scalise, a member of Republican House leadership and a congressman from Louisiana, had a mic-drop reply that was short and sweet… and utterly devastating.

“I can think of an example,” he simply replied.

You may recall that Scalise was playing baseball with the House GOP baseball team at a Virginia ball park in 2017 when a former Bernie Sanders operative named James Hodgkinson started shooting at the Republicans to try and kill as many as possible.

Yeah. Boom.

Raheem Kassam also pointed out that a recent Project Veritas investigation found a Bernie Bro threatening violence:

Then there was a recent story at Fox News headlined, “Ex-Sanders consultant arrested after allegedly planting weapons in jail for ‘evil’ escape plot.”

So, yeah no Bernie Bro ever seemed to pose a threat in any way, huh?

Criminal Released 140 Times Thanks New York Democrats for Dangerous ‘Bail Reform’ Law

A criminal who has been given a free pass 139 previous times is smugly thanking the State of New York for its dangerous “bail reform” law.

Published

on

A criminal who has been given a free pass 139 previous times is smugly thanking the State of New York for its dangerous “bail reform” law that continues to let him walk after arrests.

The convict, 56-year-old Charles Barry, laughed at New York’s criminal justice system after being released for his 140th time only days after the NYPD arrested him yet again.

Barry was arrested this month after being accused of scamming a foreign tourist on the subway out of his cash, but thanks to New York’s new no-bail system, he was allowed to walk free despite 139 previous arrests and convictions, the New York Daily News reported.

The crook was charged with fraudulent accosting, but since that is a “non-violent” offense, he was allowed to simply walk out of jail with the promise that he would appear in court at the appointed time.

Barry’s name has been mentioned by media outlets reporting on the progress of the new no-bail law. And that media attention has even emboldened the crook.

“I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” Barry told the Daily News. “Bail reform, it’s lit! It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”

“It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing,” Barry said of the Democrats. “They punk’d people out for bullshit crimes.”

The no-bail system is only months old, but Barry has already been arrested seven times since it was signed into law.

And, just like critics predicted, Barry thinks the law gives him a license to offend.

“Barry’s criminal record includes six felony convictions, 87 misdemeanor convictions, and 21 skipped court hearings. Barry’s record also includes spending six criminal sentences in state prison, including stints for drug dealing and grand larceny,” Breitbart News reported.

One has to wonder how soon police officers will just stop even arresting criminals?

Boy Scouts of America Files for Bankruptcy After Years of Sex Abuse Lawsuits

The Boy Scouts of America has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after being hit with 30 years of sex abuse allegations.

Published

on

The Boy Scouts of America has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after being hit with 30 years of sex abuse allegations by scouts abused by gay scout masters.

The bankruptcy petition was filed in Delaware as the 110-year-old organization has faced multimillion-dollar legal fees over the allegations.

Per Fox News:

Sexual abuse settlements had reportedly strained the Boy Scouts’ finances, with states passing laws last year so victims from long-ago abuse can sue for damages.

Mike Pfau, an attorney whose firm was representing 300 victims in New York as of last April, said the bankruptcy would be “bigger in scale than any other sex abuse bankruptcy.”

“You’re talking about thousands of perpetrators,” Seattle-based lawyer Michael Pfau, who has represented more than 300 Boy Scout victims in 34 states, told the New York Daily News. “You’re talking about tens of thousands of victims. This will be the largest bankruptcy the country has ever seen, and likely one of the largest corporate bankruptcies.”

BSA has been struggling to settle the myriad of lawsuits.

“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children,” said Roger Mosby, president and chief executive officer of the BSA.

“While we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process – with the proposed Trust structure – will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission,” he concluded.

“The bankruptcy petition reportedly listed the Boy Scouts’ assets as between $1 billion and $10 billion, and its liabilities at $500 million to $1 billion,” Fox reported.

The Scouts resisted changing its policies and allowing gays to serve as scout masters. It looks like the lawsuits prove that allowing gays into the scouts is a very bad idea.

Looks like liberals have wrecked another fine American institution.

Black Man Kidnaps Woman, Forces Her to Watch ‘Roots’ Because She’s ‘Racist’

A black man in Iowa was arrested for kidnapping a woman and forcing her to watch the TV series, Roots because she’s racist.

Published

on

A black man in Iowa was arrested for kidnapping a white woman and holding her captive while forcing her to watch the old TV series, Roots, to show her how “racist” she is.

Police in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, arrested Robert Lee Noye, 52, and charged him with kidnapping the woman and forcing her to watch the 1977 TV mini-series about Africans brought into slavery in pre-Civil War America, the Cedar Rapids Gazette reported.

A police report says that Noye told the woman to watch the show “so she could better understand her racism,” and also threatened her life if she tried to get away.

The complaint against the suspect says that when the victim tried to get away, he told her to “remain seated and watch the movie with him or he would kill her and spread her body parts across Interstate 380 on the way to Chicago.”

Noye was hit with charges of first-degree harassment and false imprisonment.

If you don’t know about Roots, the New York Post explained:

Based on Alex Haley’s acclaimed book “Roots: The Saga of an American Family,” the TV adaptation chronicles the author’s ancestry beginning with Kunta Kinte, a young Gambian warrior in the 1700s who was kidnapped and sold into slavery.

The paper also led with this amusing little quip:

This is the wrong kind of captive audience.

OK, that brought a chuckle.

But we can blame leftism for this crime. After all, liberals are now so entirely comfortable with the base lie that ALL white people are abject racists who lord their “white privilege” over blacks, so, what the heck? Why not treat white people as less than human?

‘Strong Evidence of Criminal Misconduct’ by Hunter Biden, Says Watchdog Group

A major government watchdog group is now saying that there is plenty of reason to investigate the cooked deals Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.

Published

on

A major government watchdog group is now saying that there is plenty of reason to investigate the cooked deals Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, made with a Ukrainian energy company.

Hunter Biden’s corrupt backroom deals with Burisma, an energy company based in Ukraine, were at the heart of the failed attempt to impeach and remove President Donald Trump. Namely that Democrats claimed that trump improperly used the powers of his office to “investigate a political rival ” (despite that Joe Biden was not a known “political rival” during the time Trump made his phone call to Ukraine’s president because Biden was not an announced 2020 candidate).

Anyway, the left claimed that Trump’s call to “force” Ukraine’s president to investigate Hunter Biden’s shady deals with Burisma was the whole reason for his impeachment.

All along, the Democrats have said that Hunter Biden may have made an unseemly deal that “had bad optics” by trading off his father’s position as vice president, but they continue to claim that there were no laws broken in Hunter’s deals.

But Judicial Watch begs to differ.

In a recent interview with One America News, Judicial Watch chief Tom Fitton said there is “strong evidence of criminal misconduct” by Hunter Biden as the U.S. Treasury Department has begun supplying bank records related to Biden as requested by Senate investigative committees that are scrutinizing his activities.

Per the Blaze:

The Washington Examiner reported the documents requested by Senate investigators are known as “suspicious activity reports,” or “banking alerts involving money laundering or fraud, related to Biden and his associates.”

Senate investigators have also asked the Secret Service to turn over Hunter Biden’s travel records, which Fitton explained could be the beginning of a broader criminal probe.

“This would be the basic investigative work one would do if you were trying to figure out where Hunter Biden was and who he was traveling with during the Obama presidency,” Fitton, who recommended that federal investigators also look into Joe Biden’s travels to China, another country where his son was working, said.

Fitton added that there is no evidence whatever that Hunter Biden actually did anything for the millions he was paid to be a member of the Burisma board.

It seems pretty straight forward that Biden was paid millions for a no-show, no-work job solely because his last name was Biden.
