Could Beijing Biden's corrupt family soon be brought to justice?

US counterintelligence allegedly investigating Hunter's ties to Chinese intelligence and more

President Joe Biden’s crackhead son Hunter may be under federal surveillance regarding his shady connections to China’s “top spy chief” among other problematic issues.

Journalist Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations.com reported on Monday that a source within US counterintelligence told him Hunter is being monitored by the feds as there are growing concerns about his ties to the Chinese government.

In October 2020, it was widely reported in alternative media circles that leaked audio revealed Hunter Biden saying he represented “the fucking spy chief of China,” a man named Patrick Ho, who started a company with Hunter’s “partner” Che Feng.

Hunter Biden’s “laptop from Hell” revealed Joe Biden’s brother Jim was caught sending bank wiring instructions to Ho in 2018.

One of Hunter’s former associates, Tony Bobulinski, spilled the beans about the Biden family’s shady Chinese business deals in 2020 after the infamous laptop was made public.

Sperry also wrote on Monday the US counterespionage officials allegedly investigating Hunter are interested in his communication with members of the US Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, which approved a 2015 deal where a Chinese firm took over a US auto parts manufacturer.

He wrote, “US counterespionage officials investigating alleged contacts between Hunter Biden and members of CFIUS during Chinese takeover of US firm making automotive parts w/ dual-use technologies. CFIUS approved the sensitive 2015 deal, which had national security implications.”

On Thursday, Sperry claimed the FBI and DOJ wiretapped Hunter and James Biden over their communications with the Chinese business moguls who have close ties to the Communist government’s intelligence agencies.

“Sources say FBI/DOJ have wiretaps of comms b/t Hunter, Jimmy Biden and their Chinese nat’l business partner Chi Ping Patrick Ho, aka He Zhiping, obtained from FISA warrants. Fearing CEFC ties to ChiCom mil intel, Hunter monitored as subject of C.I./FARA probe since 2018,” he wrote.

Author and Fox News contributor Miranda Devine told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday there are “well-founded concerns” that President Biden may be compromised by China.

Devine claimed Hunter, “was deeply embedded in the very highest echelons of the U.S. government during the time that his father was vice president.”

She also said his cell phone contacts included “top U.S. officials who were responsible for overseeing the China-U.S. relationship,” as well as “top Google executives.”

“There have to be well-founded concerns that he may be compromised when it comes to China, through his son and his brother’s family business to do with China,” Devine concluded.

The New York Post published an article in January detailing five deals the Biden family struck in China, resulting in a whopping $31 million in profit for the corrupt First Family.

Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) exposed the Biden family’s ties to communist China in March when they provided documents detailing large monetary exchanges between Hunter and arms of the Chinese government.

Speaking on the Senate floor, Sen. Johnson accused the press and Democrat politicians of attacking the Hunter laptop story in order to “cover up the extent to which President Biden might be – and almost certainly is – compromised.”

Supporting the idea that Joe Biden is at best the most pro-China president in U.S. history and at worst a literal Chinese communist agent, see the litany of articles below exposing his allegiance to the tyrannical regime:

Don’t say President Trump didn’t try and warn you!

Texts show his dad wired him $95,000

Fresh footage has emerged from Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell showing him sitting in a sensory deprivation tank smoking crack from a pipe just weeks after he asked his father to pay for a detox program.

The Daily Mail obtained the footage, shot at Blue Water Wellness Centre in Massachusetts, and dating from January 2019. Biden is seen also drinking alcohol inside the tank.

He again filmed himself for some bizarre reason sitting naked in the tank playing with his genitals and looking completely shitfaced.

Text messages found via the laptop also confirm that Hunter texted his father asking for money to pay for the treatment in addition to bills and alimony.

Joe Biden responded saying he was wiring $75,000 dollars to his son to pay for the treatment.

Further texts reveal that Hunter asked for another $20,000 just days later to fund a ‘sober house’ detox program. His father again appeared to oblige him, responding “Just called Mel he will get 20 to your account this afternoon tomorrow morning at latest. He will contact me when transfer goes through.”

In a text on January 1st 2019, Hunter told a woman he appeared to be acquainted with that “my dad is paying for whatever I need.”

The latest footage comes after the White House Press Secretary refused to answer questions regarding the laptop and a voicemail left on Hunter’s phone by Joe Biden seemingly discussing business dealings.

President Biden awarded the Medal of Freedom to several of his political allies.

As Breitbart News reported:

He awarded a medal to Sister Simone Campbell, a prominent activist who helped Biden promote Obamacare, Khizr Khan, who helped lead the charge against President Donald Trump in the 2016 election, and a posthumous medal to Richard Trumka, a former union boss who supported Biden.
Biden also awarded a medal to soccer player Megan Rapinoe, a vocal critic of Trump who helped promote Biden during the 2020 election.
Hunter Biden’s attendance at the Medal of Freedom comes as he is under investigation by U.S. Department of Justice authorities for tax fraud, money laundering, and lobbying law violations.

REVEALED: Biden sold 1 MILLION barrels of oil from US Strategic Reserves to Chinese company Hunter Biden invested in​

In 2015, a private equity firm cofounded by Hunter Biden bought a stake in the Sinopec Marketing valued at $1.7 million.

REVEALED: Biden sold 1 MILLION barrels of oil from US Strategic Reserves to Chinese company Hunter Biden invested in


Hannah NightingaleWashington DC

July 7, 2022 7:01 PM3 Mins Reading

Following Wednesday’s news that millions of barrels of oil released from America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserves were shipped overseas to China, India, and Europe, it has been revealed that nearly one million barrels of oil were sent to a Chinese energy company in which President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, had a stake as recently as 2015.

On Wednesday, Reuters revealed that more than five million barrels of crude oil that were expected to be put into use in the US to bring down skyrocketing prices at the pump were instead sent to European nations, India, as well as China.
In April, the Biden administration announced that 950,000 Strategic Petroleum Reserve barrels would be sold to Unipec, the trading arm of the China Petrochemical Corporation. Commonly known as Sinopec, this company is wholly owned by the Chinese government, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
The sales of these barrels, as well as others as part of the sales of 30 million barrels in total, "will support American consumers and the global economy in response to Vladimir Putin’s war of choice against Ukraine," the Department of Energy said in a statement, as well as "address the pain Americans are feeling at the pump as a result of Putin’s Price Hike and to help lower energy costs."

Speaking with the Washington Free Beacon, Power the Future founder Daniel Turner blasted the Biden administration for selling "raw materials to the Communist Chinese for them to use as they want."
"We were assured Biden was releasing this oil to America so it could be refined for gasoline to drive down prices at the pump. So right off the bat, they're just lying to the American people," Turner told the Washington Free Beacon. "What they're saying they did and what they did are not remotely related."
Turner noted that the decision to sell to Unipec highlights the Biden family's "relationship with China."
In 2015, a private equity firm cofounded by Hunter Biden, Bohai Harvest RST, previously owned a stake in the Sinopec Marketing valued at $1.7 million.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, "Sinopec went on to enter negotiations to purchase Gazprom in March, one month after the Biden administration sanctioned the Russian gas giant."
In addition, Unipec has stated it would purchase "no more Russian oil going forward" once "shipments that have arrived in March and due to arrive in April" were fulfilled, but it was revealed that in May, the company "significantly increased the number of hired tankers to ship a key crude from eastern Russia," according to Bloomberg.
Speaking with RealClearPolitics, a spokesperson for the Department of Energy defended the final destination of some of the barrels released from the Strategic Reserves, saying that energy markets are international, and that the department couldn’t dictate what happens within these markets.
"Oil is a commodity traded on the global market, and while the United States government does not control oil and gas companies, the commodity the industry sells or the market, the SPR remains a critical energy security tool to address global crude oil supply disruptions," the spokesperson said in a statement.
They added that the emergency release from the Strategic Reserves had helped “keep our economy running and mitigate the pain Putin is causing at the pump."
The spokesperson noted that domestic oil and gas companies "are eligible for sales and exchanges from the SPR and have benefited from the releases to date." Recent reports have revealed that foreign companies benefit as well.
RealClearPolitics reported that "In the face of such criticism, administration officials continued to insist that they can’t control what private companies do, and the oil that went overseas appears to be a small fraction of the total released from the national reserve thus far."
"Once oil is released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves, current US law allows for companies that are registered to purchase it to then sell it on the market, including to adversaries like China," Heritage Foundation energy analyst Jack Spencer told RealClearPolitics.
Spencer noted though that "Americans are absolutely justified in asking why these valuable reserves, ostensibly for use in US national emergencies or to advance US national security interests, are going to unfriendly countries."
"Releasing oil from the SPR does not address the fundamental supply problems caused by Biden’s policies, and the market knows it. Similar to other gimmicks like suspension of the gas tax, it will have no sustainable market impact," Spencer concluded.

Ten NEW Hunter Biden Scandals the Networks Are CENSORING​

Link: https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/n...-hunter-biden-scandals-networks-are-censoring

Hunter%20and%20Joe%20BidenMainHiddenScandals.png
ABC, CBS and NBC still refuse to cover the latest Hunter Biden scandals, even as they pile up on an almost daily basis.
Because they are so in the tank for the Biden administration the broadcast networks remain stubborn in their refusal to report on evidence that links directly to the President himself like Joe Biden’s voicemail to Hunter that disproves his claim he “never” spoke to Hunter about his “business dealings. The networks have also been completely silent on the kind of salacious headlines (Hunter may face federal prostitution charges) that would dominate the news cycles if this was a son of a Republican president.
The lack of Hunter scandal coverage is something NewsBusters has been tracking on almost daily basis since March 16, when the New York Times finally confirmed that Hunter’s laptop is real and not an example of “Russian disinformation.” If the liberal broadcast networks were waiting for an all-clear to admit the explosive Hunter Biden laptop story (that was first broken by the New York Post way back on October 14, 2020) was real and legitimate, that was it. That still hasn’t spurred them to cover the wayward son’s mischievous and criminal activities that could hurt the Biden administration.
Back in June, NewsBusters ran down seven Hunter Biden imbroglios that the networks virtually ignored. The following are ten NEW Hunter scandals that have been revealed since then and how ABC, CBS and NBC have covered or, more accurately, not covered them:

Possible Federal Prostitution Charges for Hunter Biden

On July 11, The Daily Mail reported the following:
Prosecutors may have a case for federal prostitution offenses against Hunter Biden, according to documents, texts and videos that show he spent a staggering $30,000 on escorts in a five-month period. The president’s son wrote checks to a Ukrainian woman whose transactions were red-flagged by banks for suspicious activity, documents reveal.
A Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) filed by JPMorgan Chase named Florida and New York-based Ekaterina Moreva after she received tens of thousands of dollars from Hunter’s company and women who the First Son paid for sex.
Texts from Hunter’s iPhone also show him handwriting checks disguised as medical services to escorts supplied by Moreva, whose website offers a “girlfriend experience’ with prostitutes as young as 20.
Some of Hunter’s hooker payments came just hours after he received thousands of dollars from his father.
Videos and pictures show Hunter helping transport those prostitutes over state lines for a debauched night with him – a potential federal offense. The material has been in the FBI's hands since December 2019, raising the prospect that its investigation into Hunter could lead to charges over his dealings with prostitutes – though experts say prosecutions over prostitution charges alone are rare.

President Sold Oil from Emergency Reserves to Chinese Company That Hunter Had Stakes In

HunterChinaOilTies.jpg
On July 9, The Daily Mail reported the following:
Joe Biden has sold 950,000 barrels of the United States’ Strategic Petroleum Reserve to a state-owned Chinese firm in which Hunter Biden’s private equity firm held a $1.7 billion stake, reports say. Last week it emerged five million barrels of oil have been sent abroad, after the White House claimed releasing them would help ease Americans' pain at the pumps. The president was first slammed when it emerged between a fifth and a sixth of the reserve oil he bragged about releasing to boost supply made its way offshore to Europe and Asia in June.
Then on Friday it further emerged some of the oil was shipped to a firm previously connected to the president’s son. The 950,000 barrels were sold to Unipec, the trading arm of the China Petrochemical Corporation - better known as Sinopec. Sinopec is also tied to the private equity firm BHR Partners - which Hunter co-founded in 2013.

Liar-In-Chief: Hunter’s Laptop Reveals Joe Biden Met With Son 30 Times Immediately After Foreign Trips​

by Kelen McBreen
July 18th 2022, 1:42 pm

Link: https://www.infowars.com/posts/liar...son-30-times-immediately-after-foreign-trips/

Joe has repeatedly claimed he's never discussed business with Hunter

The personal calendar found on one of Hunter Biden’s infamous laptops reveals the disgraced First Son met with his father at least 30 separate times soon after Hunter returned from foreign business trips.

The New York Post reported on Saturday that Hunter would show up at either the White House or the vice president’s residence within days of coming home from meetings with powerful individuals around the globe between 2008 and 2016.


The timing of the meetings hints toward the father-son duo discussing Hunter’s trips, business deals and more.

However, Joe Biden has repeatedly stated he does not and has not ever talked with Hunter or his brother Jim about their lucrative contracts and business deals.

“I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period,” Joe Biden said in 2019.

Another New York Post report from April revealed Hunter often paid for Biden family expenses apparently using funds from the shady offshore deals.

Adding to the likeliness that Joe and Hunter were touching base in order to discuss business is the fact that the president of Hunter Biden’s investment company Rosemont Seneca Partners was invited to 21 of the 30 meetings listed in the calendar.

House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (NY) told the Post this calendar provides more insight into the Biden crime family.


“Hardly a day goes by without another revelation about how intimately involved Joe Biden was with his son Hunter Biden’s corrupt foreign business dealings,” she said. “The fact that Joe was in meetings with senior foreign leaders on behalf of Hunter and his business associates while Vice President further proves that Joe has been lying to the American people.”

Some of the Joe and Hunter chats took place within hours of Hunter meeting with high-profile individuals.

For example, on April 15, 2016, Hunter met with the Prime Minister of Africa’s Côte d’Ivoire just 45-minutes ahead of meeting with his father.

Miranda Devine, New York Post columnist and author of the book, “Laptop From Hell,” spoke with Fox News this weekend to discuss the importance of the calendar.

“There are the meetings with Hunter that are on Hunter’s calendar with his father just days or even minutes after he’s returned from these overseas business trips. What was he doing there? Was it just pure coincidence? It seems strange, 30 times,” she said.

In addition to the newly revealed Hunter calendar, Devine noted Joe met with Hunter’s associates many times at his vice presidential residence, at cafes and even overseas.

Focusing on the juice of the story, Devine told Americans, “The main part of this is the money. You have to follow the money. There was tens of millions of dollars that flowed through from those countries, whether it be Kazakhstan or China Russia or Ukraine or Romania that flowed into the Biden bank accounts. So, what was that for?”

FBI Sabotaged Hunter Biden Evidence To Derail Investigation: Whistleblowers​

by Zero Hedge
July 26th 2022, 4:56 am

Link: https://www.infowars.com/posts/fbi-...dence-to-derail-investigation-whistleblowers/

Several FBI whistleblowers say that the agency’s probe into Hunter Biden was internally sabotaged during the 2020 election in order to derail the investigation, after agents wrongfully deemed verified evidence as “disinformation” to ignore.

According to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), agents investigating Hunter “opened an assessment which was used by an FBI headquarters team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease,” adding that his office received “a significant number of protected communications from highly credible whistleblowers” regarding the investigation.


Grassley added that “verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation,” according to the Washington Examiner.

FBI supervisory intelligence agent Brian Auten opened in August 2020 the assessment that was later used by the agency, according to the disclosures. One of the whistleblowers claimed the FBI assistant special agent in charge of the Washington field office, Timothy Thibault, shut down a line of inquiry into Hunter Biden in October 2020 despite some of the details being known to be true at the time.
A whistleblower also said Thibault “ordered closed” an “avenue of additional derogatory Hunter Biden reporting,” according to Grassley, even though “all of the reporting was either verified or verifiable via criminal search warrants.” The senator said Thibault “ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required” and that FBI officials “subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future,” according to the disclosures.
The whistleblowers say investigators from FBI headquarters were “in communication with FBI agents responsible for the Hunter Biden information targeted by Mr. Auten’s assessment,” and that their findings on whether the claims were in fact disinformation were placed “in a restricted access sub-file” in September 2020, according to Grassley, who added that the disclosures “appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation.

Grassley summarized the new allegations in a Monday letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The Examiner notes that FBI agent Auten was involved in the Trump-Russia investigation, including interviewing Christopher Steele’s primary source, Igor Danchenko.

According to Grassley, the “volume and consistency” of the allegations regarding the handling of the Hunter Biden probe “substantiate their credibility.”

The assessment by Auten in August 2020 was opened the same month Grassley and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) received a briefing from the FBI “that purportedly related to our Biden investigation and a briefing for which the contents were later leaked in order to paint the investigation in a false light,” Grassley said. The senator said Senate Democrats asked for a briefing in July 2020 “from the very same FBI HQ team that discredited the derogatory Hunter Biden information.”
The FBI inquiry into Hunter Biden reportedly began as a tax investigation, then expanded into a scrutiny of potential money-laundering and foreign lobbying; the DOJ has declined to hand over investigative details. -Washington Examiner
Thibault, the FBI agent who allegedly quashed the Hunter probe, may have violated the Hatch act in 2020 after making posts on social media which were critical of then-president Donald Trump and former AG William Barr.

Also notable – Hunter had the numbers of several FBI agents in his iCloud contacts.

Joe Biden, top Democrats, and virtually the entire mainstream media dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation when bombshell allegations from the New York Post emerged weeks before the 2020 election. In March 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a report claiming that figures tied to Russian intelligence promoted “misleading or unsubstantiated allegations” about Joe Biden.

EXCLUSIVE: Biden’s CIA Director Employed Undisclosed Chinese Communist Party Members While Heading Elite DC Think Tank​

Carnegie Endowment for International Peace employed undisclosed members of the Chinese Communist Party and individuals with ties to the Chinese government when CIA Director William Burns served as the think tank’s president, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation determined.

PHILIP LENCZYCKIINVESTIGATIVE REPORTER
August 14, 20229:04 PM ET

  • CIA Director William Burns formerly headed a prominent D.C. think tank while it employed Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has found.
  • Carnegie employed at least 20 CCP members while Burns was president, four of whom were brought on during his tenure, the DCNF found.
  • “If any Communist Party members have easy access to any sensitive information whatsoever, they’re certain to get a visit from Chinese intelligence,” a former vice-presidential national security adviser said.
Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns formerly headed an influential D.C. think tank while it employed undisclosed Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members as well as individuals with Chinese government ties, the Daily Caller News Foundation has found.
During Burns’ tenure as president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace from February 2015 to November 2021, the think tank employed at least 20 policy experts whom the DCNF has identified as CCP members. These CCP members worked at both Carnegie’s Washington, D.C., headquarters and Carnegie-Tsinghua — the Beijing center Burns’ predecessor, Jessica Mathews, launched in 2010 in cooperation with Tsinghua University.
Yet, expert profiles on Carnegie’s website don’t disclose these individuals’ ties to the CCP. The DCNF only discovered their communist ties after analyzing hundreds of Chinese-language, Communist Party branch records and personnel profiles from more than a dozen CCP-linked organizations. (RELATED: American Elites Have Deep Ties To A New Chinese Spy Chief)
Burns’ tenure at Carnegie coincided with increased alarm from the FBI concerning the CCP conducting “malign influence operations” against key American institutions. In July 2020, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the CCP seeks to “influence our policymakers” and “manipulate our public opinion” by exploiting the “openness” of our society.
Considering such warnings, employing CCP members and those with Chinese government ties raises red flags, national security experts said.

“It’s pretty much a fatal cul-de-sac that [Burns] finds himself in,” Steve Yates, former deputy national security adviser to the vice president, told the DCNF.
“Either he appears to have allowed government-linked experts from a hostile power to affiliate with an organization boasting many former and future U.S. appointees or he didn’t know or bother to check — a remarkable lapse in operational security for a highly-cleared former U.S. official and pretty disqualifying for a director of Central Intelligence,” said Yates. “If you can’t track who was in your think tank, running a much larger intelligence agency is the wrong line of work.”
CCP members swear an oath to the Communist Party pledging to “fight for communism” and “sacrifice everything for the party and the people,” according to the Constitution of the Communist Party of China. Moreover, in keeping with China’s “Thousand Grains of Sand” intelligence-gathering strategy, Chinese intelligence often recruits members of the overseas Chinese community to collect information for the state, according to the CIA.
“If any Communist Party members have easy access to any sensitive information whatsoever, they’re certain to get a visit from Chinese intelligence,” said Yates. “They will have no choice but to gather and disclose on a regular basis going forward.”

CCP members will go to great lengths to “avoid suspicion” while they conduct influence operations against foreign institutions, added Brandon Weichert, a national security expert and consultant for the U.S. Air Force.
“They’ll do their job and you will not know that they are actually Chinese agents of influence until the moment that Beijing decides they need something,” Weichert said. “They could exist for years in a sleeper mentality.” (RELATED: Top US Scientist Warned Chinese Counterparts Of Possible Investigations Into The Wuhan lab. One Year Later, He Took A Job At A Chinese University)
Burns initially came under fire for Carnegie’s ties to the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) during his February 2021 CIA confirmation hearing. He testified under oath that he’d terminated Carnegie’s relationship with the Chinese government-backed group after being pressed on those ties by Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.
“This is a relationship that I inherited when I became president of Carnegie and that I ended not long after I became president,” Burns told Rubio during the hearing.
The DCNF previously revealed that Carnegie’s relationship with CUSEF endured for at least two years after Burns became the group’s president in 2015. The DCNF’s past reporting was based on an English-language notice for a March 2017 event Carnegie held with CUSEF. While the notice has since been scrubbed from Carnegie’s website, Chinese-language reports for the event still exist.
The majority of Carnegie-employed CCP members were brought onboard before Burns’ tenure began. Among them was the president of the Carnegie China Management Board, Yan Xuetong — an acclaimed “outstanding CCP member” and the “inspiration” for launching Carnegie-Tsinghua from the Chinese side.
However, Carnegie also brought on at least four CCP members during Burns’ presidency, including Yang Xiaoping, an expert on South Asia.
When reached for comment, a CIA spokesman initially referred the DCNF to Burns’ confirmation hearing testimony. However, when the DCNF explained how Burns’ testimony did not address Carnegie’s hiring of undisclosed CCP members and individuals tied to the Chinese government, the CIA requested more time. Three and a half hours later, the CIA declined to comment and referred the DCNF to Carnegie. Burns himself could not be reached for comment at the CIA.
The Chinese Embassy did not respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.
A spokesman for Carnegie also referred the DCNF to Burns’ confirmation hearing testimony, but did not address whether or not the think tank knew it was housing CCP members.

However, ignorance is no excuse, according to Texas Republican Rep. Lance Gooden.
“Nonprofits and think tanks like the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace have budgets in the tens of millions of dollars. These organizations have the monetary resources and the manpower to properly vet their donors and their employees, yet they choose not to because both go hand in hand,” Gooden told the DCNF.
“It would not surprise me if the nonprofit sector has knowingly turned a blind eye to CCP members in exchange for donations or political favors,” Gooden said. “If the reports of CIA Director Burns’ CCP contacts are true, there should be a full investigation into whether his ties to China disqualify him from government service.”
Because think tanks like Carnegie enjoy unique access to U.S. government officials, they should vet their staff for CCP ties, Weichert told the DCNF.
“The fact that most think tanks are government influence operations, I’d say it is a very serious priority for them to properly vet their staff for CCP ties, as well as their donors,” Weichert said.
Even if Burns claims he was unaware that Carnegie employed CCP members and other Chinese government allies during his tenure, such an admission would render him unfit to head the CIA, Weichert added.
“If they can’t be trusted in that position to employ the right people who aren’t under the sway of foreign governments, how the hell can we expect them not to do the same thing when they’re in an even more important position of authority?” said Weichert.
High-ranking members of Chinese government influence operations and government officials also joined Carnegie’s board of trustees under Burns, according to multiple sources.
Carnegie added Wang Chaoyong, vice chairman of the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), to its board of trustees in June 2015, just months after Burns became president.
CCG is a pro-Chinese government group headed by a former member of China’s State Council who holds leadership positions in multiple influence operations, according to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission — a body chartered by Congress to report on national security implications arising from economic entanglement with China.
Although Wang left Carnegie after 2019, Zhang Yichen, senior vice chairman of CCG and a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), remains on its board of trustees, as the DCNF previously reported.

Carnegie also hired experts with Chinese government ties during Burns’ presidency. For instance, Carnegie added Jia Qingguo, a member of the CPPCC and Foreign Affairs Committee, in 2017, and Lyu Jinghua, a retired colonel from the People’s Liberation Army, in 2018.
Rubio, who pressed Burns about past China ties during his CIA confirmation hearing last year, said “the Biden Administration doesn’t have a plan to protect America’s economic and national security from Beijing.”
“Either they don’t understand the Chinese Communist threat or they simply don’t care because they’re desperate for solar panels and electric batteries from China,” Rubio told the DCNF.

CIA Director Burns Was Surrounded by Communists in His Prior Job, Joins Prior CIA Directors and Obama Lackeys with Ties to Communists​

AUGUST 16, 20221 COMMENT

IMG_5830.jpg

Biden’s current Director of the CIA surrounded himself with CCP members in his last position at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Then again, Obama’s CIA Director had connections to communism so what could go wrong?
Newsmax reports that Biden’s Head of the CIA surrounded himself with Chinese Party members in his position before taking over the CIA:
When CIA Director William Burns was president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the prominent D.C. think tank employed at least 20 undisclosed Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members, a Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) investigation has discovered.
Expert profiles on Carnegie’s website, however, do not disclose the ties of these individuals to the CCP, with the DCNF only revealing the connection after going through hundreds of Chinese-language, Communist Party branch records and personnel profiles from more than a dozen groups linked to the CCP.
Burns’ term as head of Carnegie, from 2015 to November 2021, coincided with a higher state of concern from the FBI regarding the CCP carrying out “malign influence operations” against key American institutions, with FBI Director Christopher Wray warning in July 2020 that the CCP seeks to “influence our policymakers” and “manipulate our public opinion” by exploiting the “openness” of our society.
The Daily Caller piece details more of what was going on with CIA Director Burns:
Burns’ tenure at Carnegie coincided with increased alarm from the FBI concerning the CCP conducting “malign influence operations” against key American institutions. In July 2020, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the CCP seeks to “influence our policymakers” and “manipulate our public opinion” by exploiting the “openness” of our society.
Considering such warnings, employing CCP members and those with Chinese government ties raises red flags, national security experts said.
“It’s pretty much a fatal cul-de-sac that [Burns] finds himself in,” Steve Yates, former deputy national security adviser to the vice president, told the DCNF.
“Either he appears to have allowed government-linked experts from a hostile power to affiliate with an organization boasting many former and future U.S. appointees or he didn’t know or bother to check — a remarkable lapse in operational security for a highly-cleared former U.S. official and pretty disqualifying for a director of Central Intelligence,” said Yates. “If you can’t track who was in your think tank, running a much larger intelligence agency is the wrong line of work.”
John Brennan, who worked alongside Jim Comey under Barack Hussein Obama, was an admitted communist. We’re not sure about Burns, but Brennan admittedly voted for a communist in a prior US Election.
Recently, another CIA Director called for executing President Trump. TGP outed this nutjob, Ex-CIA Director Hayden, years ago. Maybe we need to clean house at the CIA along with the FBI and DOJ. These people are violent and don’t seem to have US interests as their priorities. They seem to care more about China’s interests.

WH Official Refuses to Explain Why Biden Admin Allowing China to Buy Up US Land Near Military Bases​

by Jamie White
September 13th 2022, 3:05 pm

“We're going to move on,” says press sec Karine Jean-Pierre.

White House National Security Council Strategic Comms Director John Kirby refused to explain why the Biden administration has been allowing Communist China to buy up large tracts of U.S. real estate near key military installations.

When asked Tuesday during a press briefing why Biden was ignoring the national security implications of allowing China, America’s greatest geopolitical adversary, to purchase U.S. land in key strategic areas at the expense of U.S. buyers, Kirby claimed he wasn’t equipped to answer the question.


“I think the question of home ownership is a little bit out of my swim lane,” Kirby responded. “What I will tell you is that the president has been, uh, nothing but clear about our concerns about Chinese unfair trade practices and economic practices.”

REPORTER: "China, foreign buyers, are buying up U.S. real estate, in some cases farms, around military installations. Is this on the administration’s radar?"

KIRBY: "I'm probably not the right person to ask about home ownership…"

When further pressed about China aggressively buying up U.S. farmland and real estate near military bases, Kirby obfuscated the issue by framing it as a “home ownership” situation rather than a national security concern.

“I’m probably not the right person to ask about home ownership here in the United States,” he said.

The reporter pushed back again, clarifying, “This isn’t about home ownership. This is about buying up land around military installations…”

At that point Kirby signaled press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to come to his rescue by dismissing the question altogether.

“We can get back to you after. We’re going to move on,” Jean-Pierre told the reporter.

Buyers from the People’s Republic of China purchased $6.1 billion in U.S. real estate in 2021, the most of any foreign buyer.

Earlier this summer, the Fufeng Group, a massive agricultural company tied to the Chinese government, bought 300 acres of farmland near Grand Forks, North Dakota, just down the road from a military base that houses sensitive drone technology.

Experts noted that China’s strategic buy-ups of U.S. real estate could have grave national security implications:

From the Texas Public Policy Foundation:

Revelations from a groundbreaking exclusive CNN story published on July 23 about telecommunications equipment from China’s Huawei installed in rural America suggest that Chinese land purchases could pose a severe national security threat as well.
CNN chronicles the Chinese government’s more than decade-long effort to establish a massive electronic intelligence and jamming capability in the U.S. adjacent to military installations and in Washington, D.C. Such a system could deliver a crippling electronic Pearl Harbor against American nuclear weapons systems and strategic communications vital to deterring and defeating a military surprise attack.
More alarmingly, the true extent of China’s mass buy-ups of U.S. land is not even fully understood thanks to government ineptitude and lack of transparency laws.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Government transparency on these investments falls short of basic standards. Until a few months ago, USDA’s online reports went back only as far as 2004 and the data required special software to extract. Information on older purchases could be obtained only through Freedom of Information Act requests. Officials have admitted that they don’t review filings related to foreign purchases of American farmland, and the data on such transactions contain errors.
It’s unclear why Kirby was unwilling to provide any insight on this clear national security concern given his role in the National Security Council, but his effort to downplay China’s actions by calling the matter a “home ownership” issue suggests a broader dishonesty within the Biden administration.

China’s friend in the White House, Joe Biden, cancelled Trump’s program to prevent Chinese spying.
Guest post by Lawrence Sellin
Fox News recently reported that five months after a federal jury convicted him, a judge has thrown out three of the four convictions against a University of Kansas researcher, Feng Tao, who carried out work for Fuzhou University in China while he was employed at the University of Kansas and received research funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.
Tao was convicted as part of the Department of Justice’s “China Initiative” started in 2018 by President Donald Trump to protect U.S. national security from Chinese spying on U.S. intellectual property and in academia.
The Biden regime cancelled the program.
Yet the Feng Tao case is far from an isolated incident.
Chinese scientists working in the U.S., even those who have become U.S. citizens or permanent residents, routinely receive funding from the Chinese government and collaborate with scientists in Communist China, including scientists from the People’s Liberation Army, all while receiving U.S. taxpayer-funded research grants from the National Institutes of Health and other federal government agencies.
The following is one of likely hundreds if not thousands of Chinese scientists working in the U.S. and collaborating with China, although it does not imply that there was criminal activity.
Shibo Jiang obtained his MS and MD degrees from the First and Fourth Medical University of the People’s Liberation Army.
Between 1997 and 2016, when Shibo Jiang worked in the U.S. and was a Principal Investigator on U.S. research grants amounting to more than $17 million, the vast majority coming from Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, he also received support from the Chinese government and actively collaborated with Chinese research institutions including those of the People’s Liberation Army.
This is one such research project.

Note that Shibo Jiang associated himself with both the Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute in New York and Fudan University in Shanghai.
The co-authors Yufei Wang, Wanbo Tai, Guangyu Zhao, Shihui Sun and Yusen Zhou are from the State Key Laboratory of Pathogen and Biosecurity, which is part of the Academy of Military Medical Sciences of the People’s Liberation Army, where Wanbo Tai received his Ph.D. and has since worked in the U.S.
Also note that the Center for Biodefense and Emerging Diseases at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas is cited, a facility funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and which houses a Biosafety Level-4 high containment laboratory for research on dangerous viruses.
For that study, Shibo Jiang was funded by both the National Institutes of Health and the Chinese government, although no conflicts of interest were identified.
As if that situation is not shocking enough, here is another 2017 article in which Shibo Jiang collaborated with the “bat woman” Zheng-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the site considered by many as the origin of the COVID-19 virus.
Shibo-image-2.jpg

Like the first 2017 article, Shibo Jiang claimed affiliation with both the Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute in New York and Fudan University in Shanghai and received funding from both the National Institutes of Health and the Chinese government.
More surprisingly, however, the “bat woman” Zheng-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology was also funded by both Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chinese government.
People’s Liberation Army-trained Wanbo Tai is on both publications as is Lanying Du, who was Shibo Jiang’s student and presumed widow of People’s Liberation Army scientist Yusen Zhou found in the first 2017 article. Lanying Di is now a permanent faculty member at Georgia State University, which also houses a Biosafety Level-4 high containment laboratory for research on dangerous viruses.
At a minimum, there should be investigations to determine whether such research collaboration with China is a wise use of U.S. taxpayer money.
But China’s friend in the White House won’t allow it.
