A search of Justice Department databases reveals that Hunter Biden failed to register as a foreign agent while promoting the interests of foreign business partners in Washington, including brokering meetings with his father and other government officials, and RealClear Investigations has learned that at least one Senate committee is investigating whether Joe Biden’s son violated federal laws requiring disclosure of such foreign contacts.
The Obama administration did not prosecute Hunter Biden for potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, despite its much more aggressive pursuit of FARA cases relative to other administrations — including its opening of criminal investigations on no fewer than six Trump campaign advisers in 2016.
BlackRock and CEO Larry Fink just got permission in August from regulators in China to start a mutual fund business there, a next step in the firm’s ever-expanding portfolio of investment activity with the communist nation.
Biden might like the China-enthusiast Fink for the role, since the former vice president was recently implicated as a potential beneficiary of investment in a scheme cooked up by his son Hunter and his business partners with now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy. A 2017 email – captured in a now-famous laptop computer left and ignored by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop, and then turned over … Read More ➡

NLPC today called upon the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) to withdraw Kristen Welker, NBC’s White House Correspondent, from moderating Thursday’s debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a letter to the CPD, NLPC blasted the CPD for choosing Welker despite her pro-Democrat bias and for fabricating a quote from President Trump.
NLPC cited news reports showing that Welker’s family have been strong Democrat financial supporters and photos of her with her father posing with the Obamas at a 2012 White House Christmas party.
NLPC also cited its August 11 letter to NBC brass calling for the suspension of Welker as a White House correspondent for making up a quote from President Trump in reacting to the shooting on the White House grounds in early August. When asked by Welker if he was “rattled at all” by the incident, Trump calmly responded, ‘I don’t know, … Read More ➡
The Democrats’ strategy opposing Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation is clear: raise the boogeyman that she will overturn the Affordable Care Act and millions will immediately lose their health insurance coverage. Nonsense.
First, the case before the court next month raises a different issue than the one Chief Justice John Roberts decided and she criticized. Second, she hasn’t read the briefs or heard oral arguments, and thus no one can predict her vote. Third, the court can strike the offending provision at issue and keep intact the provisions that the Democrats are wailing about, such as coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Finally, in the unlikely event the law were to be struck down in its entirety, the court can, and likely will, stay its decision to allow Congress time to remedy the statutory defect as it has done in other cases.
The Los Angeles Lakers last night became champions of the virus-altered 2019-2020 basketball season; the NBA has purged itself of the portion of its audience it has accused of “systemic racism;” and the communist government is again allowing its games to be broadcast in China.
So life is good for the Lakers and its superstar LeBron James, the face of the league. He got everything he wanted.
James took a lot of criticism this year for his outspokenness on racial justice issues, following the deaths of blacks Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake in situations he believes were maliciously botched by police. He – and most of his NBA colleagues, including Commissioner Adam Silver – blamed a law enforcement system and its officers they believe are hopelessly racist, regardless of what the facts behind high-profile cases have revealed. So they painted “Black Lives … Read More ➡
So the lawmakers can’t be happy about the latest development in Orlando, where the National Basketball Association this year has held its abbreviated season (in what they call the “bubble,” keeping all teams in one city to mitigate against the effects of COVID-19), and is now in the midst of its championship series between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat. As I will explain in a moment, Chinese-style censorship has come to central Florida.
A government watchdog recently tried to post a bold message on giant billboards during he NBA finals about LeBron James’ refusal to speak out against Chinese human-rights abuses, but was rejected by the sign company.
The Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center was poised to spend “several hundred thousand dollars” on five billboard images showing the superstar with a Chinese flag covering his mouth and the message, “Silence is Violence.”
The billboards were set to be displayed near the entrance to the NBA Bubble near Orlando, Fla., where James’ LA Lakers are battling the Miami Heat for the NBA championship.
But Outfront Media refused to put up the ads for fear of upsetting the famously outspoken James, according to an email from the company viewed by The Post.
