DC’s Atlantic Council raked in funding from Hunter Biden’s corruption-stained employer while courting his VP father

Pay-for-play collaborations have helped grow the Atlantic Council’s annual revenue grow from $2 million to over $20 million in the past decade. In almost every case, the think tank has churned out policy prescriptions that seem suited to its donors’ interests.

Government contributors to the Atlantic Council include Gulf monarchies, the US State Department, and various Turkish interests.

When ranting, raving Lee Camp makes more sense than the entire corporate news establishment your country has serious problems.

Since this doesn’t seem to be going away, here’s important additional evidence. I may have posted the link in another article, but it deserves its own entry.

Once-secret memos cast doubt on Joe Biden’s Ukraine story
PS

Important DEBUNKING today. Nancy Pelosi’s son is accused of being corrupt, being attached to a Ukrainian company. This is promoted by the rabid, reactionary right: Infowars, Breitbart, et al.

The Pelosi son connection occurred in March 2013 almost a year BEFORE the illegal coup of January 2014. It is thus irrelevant to the coup and means nothing.

It is plain in that case that Trump is the media’s villain and the Bidens, father and son, are therefore heroes being protected by the Establishment media.
Heroes, Villains and Establishment Hypocrisy 

What I find deeply reprehensible in all the BBC coverage is their failure to report the facts of the case, and their utter lack of curiosity about why Joe Biden’s son Hunter was paid $60,000 a month by Burisma, Ukraine’s largest natural gas producer, as an entirely absent non-executive director, when he had no relevant experience in Ukraine or gas, and very little business experience, having just been dishonorably discharged from the Navy Reserve for use of crack cocaine? Is that question not just little bit interesting? That may be the thin end of it – in 2014-15 Hunter Biden received US $850,000 from the intermediary company channeling the payments. In reporting on Trump being potentially impeached for asking about it, might you not expect some analysis – or at least mention – of what he was asking about?

As Crowdstrike had claimed that it was the use of the same coding in the DNC hack as in the preceding (non-existent) Ukraine artillery hack, that proved Russia hacked the DNC, this is pretty significant. Trump was questioning Zelensky about rumours the “hacked” DNC server was hidden in the Ukraine by Crowdstrike. The media has no interest in reporting any of that at all.
