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.

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.

“I would like you to do us a favor,” (Trump) went on to urge him to investigate Ukraine’s possible involvement in the 2016 U.S. election and to speak with Giuliani about former Vice-President Joe Biden’s role in the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor.”

We’re in upside-down land. Investigating Joe Biden’s crimes is itself criminal? Why?

Biden being Biden, he had to openly brag about his getting a Ukrainian investigator fired by withholding money from them. The investigator was looking into his son, Hunter Biden’s corruption.

Rather than talking about Obama/Biden financing neo-nazi terrorist militias (Svoboda) firebombing Kiev with Molotov cocktails, and Biden installing his son to pillage gas industry profits after the flames went out, the problem is Trump asking the Ukrainians to investigate what happened?

This is absolutely absurd. It’s not a crime to ask foreign leaders to investigate crimes. That’s free speech, first amendment, and arguably a part of the job of being president. This ridiculous ploy is so transparent and so without ethical grounding it’s shocking.

Obama and Biden and NED and the US state department supported the illegal coup in Ukraine, which led to a war that killed 10,000 Ukrainians. But that’s not the impeachable offense. Talking about it apparently is.

The hypocrisy is sickening, and a bunch of Dems’ brains seem to have melted.

Donald Trump is a criminal, but not for THIS. The Emoluments Clause violations and the murders of multiple children seeking asylum at the border, denying their basic needs to survive: water, food, shelter, THAT is real crime. Poisoning Americans’ water supplies by directing the EPA to ignore the regulations against polluters, again THAT is real crime with real consequences.

This Ukraine telephone call nonsense is laughable on its face.

“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.

“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.

Interviews with a half-dozen senior Ukrainian officials confirm Biden’s account, though they claim the pressure was applied over several months in late 2015 and early 2016, not just six hours of one dramatic day.

 

Exactly the type of shit–meddling in Ukraine–that Trump is now accused of. The hypocrisy is beyond staggering. It’s a farce.
