Yeah, I think Bogative has made a persuasive case for Hunter Biden not being a good presidential candidate. One should applaud his ceaseless energy in fighting Hunter's campaign.

So with Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama all obviously not winning I guess Trump is running unopposed.

Hunter on audio recording claiming he is in business with "a spy chief of China"

Quote:
I get calls from my father to tell me that The New York Times is calling but my old partner Eric, who literally has done me harm for I don’t know how long, is the one taking the calls because my father will not stop sending the calls to Eric. I have another New York Times reporter calling about my representation of Patrick Ho – the ******* spy chief of China who started the company that my partner, who is worth $323 billion, founded and is now missing. The richest man in the world is missing who was my partner. He was missing since I last saw him in his $58 million apartment inside a $4 billion deal to build the ******* largest ******* LNG port in the world. And I am receiving calls from the Southern District of New York from the U.S. Attorney himself. My best friend in business Devon has named me as a witness without telling me in a criminal case and my father without telling me.
Audio can be found here.


Patrick Ho was arrested, jailed and fined $400,000 for
Quote:
offering US$2.9 million in bribes to Chadian President Idriss Déby, Senegalese diplomat Cheikh Gadio and Ugandan foreign minister Sam Kutesa.

Poor ol' Hunter just can't seem to catch a break. Two former US business partners are now convicted felons, a few weeks after flying to China on Air Force 2 with his daddy he accidentally stumbles into a lucrative business deal with two people who are linked to the Chinese Communist Party. One who is later convicted of bribing presidents and high-ranking diplomats for lucrative energy contracts and the other who is a mega-billionaire that has gone missing and is presumed dead.

Geez, if it weren't for bad luck he would have no luck at all.

Well, dang. I guess he should withdraw from the presidential race. It's not like lots of sitting US presidents have associated with mass killers and dictators over time and had to resign.

Assuming what you claim were true (which given your track record would be a bad assumption to make), you have now established that someone who is not on the ballot is...1/10 as corrupt as Trump? How many of Trumps associates are felons? How many have become felons because they did what Trump asked?

So, your smears still aren't touching Joe Biden, but they sure help remind people that wow is that Trump corrupt!

Step one: it's all fake!

Step two: Hunter's not running for president.

Step three: Orange Man is worse!

Step four: ???



I should also add that a third Chinese billionaire Hunter accidentally stumbled upon in the CEFC dealings is currently imprisoned in China for bribery. Strange that.

I feel like this one should have been Step one. I mean, it's the most basic reason that your smear job is failing. You're smearing the wrong guy.

Well, he certainly is by the metrics you are using. Or any other conceivable metrics. And, more importantly, Trump is on the ballot!

Ok, and? Are we not supposed to remember how many of Trump's associates, friends, and lawyers are in prison or committed suicide while in prison?

I did smile when I read that Hunter was having a bad week by associating with felons. But I also think it’s funny the Hunter smears are basically just naming stuff Trump did.

Yeah, it's even more funny when his supporters just don't see the irony in it. What next? They'll complain that Hunter was unfaithful to his wife?

Bribery is standard business practice in China. If they lock you up for it, it's because they aren't happy with you for reason and they know they can find everyone guilty of bribery.

It's standard cultural practice in a lot of countries. China is one of them as are Arab countries. Going to prison for it is more a political move than anything else.

At any time was the recording in any way associated with Bannon or Giuliani?

Not sure. Why do you ask, so you'll know whether or not to dismiss it without hearing it?

Hunter says in the recording that his daddy kept sending the calls from the New York Times' reporter to Hunter's old business partner Eric.

It appears old lunchbox Joe from Scranton may know a thing or two about a thing or two in regards to Hunter's businesses after all. Or, maybe he became Hunter's personal call answering service after he left office and that's why he would be sending reporters to hunters ex-business partner. Yeah, I'll bet that's it.

Trump supporters in general lack integrity. Bannon and Giuliani are even worse than most of their kind. It would certainly lend credence to the story if it came from an American source as opposed to a Trump related source.

I’m comfortable dismissing that without hearing it because it’s an exclusive on a right wing site that I’ve never heard of with no explanation of where it came from and don’t trust anything they say. It’s not my first day on the internet. Im also comfortable being judged however you want for doing so.

Bobulinski said in his Tucker Carlson interview tonight that the reason he came forward was because blabbermouth Adam Schiff said the emails with his name on them was Russian disinformation from the Kremlin. Bobulinski contacted Biden's people and said that if a retraction wasn't issued he was coming forward with all of his information.

Thanks for being a lying idiot, Adam.

"Trump trash"
Quote:
According to the Federal Election Commission, Bobulinski, a Los Angeles resident made political contributions to federal candidates in 2013, 2014 and 2015. In 2015, he twice gave $2,700 to Democratic Congressman Ro Khanna, who represents the state’s 17th district. In 2013, he also made two contributions, both for $2,600, to Khanna’s campaign. In 2014, Bobulinski contributed $1,500 to New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez’s re-election campaign. Menendez is also a Democrat.

So Bobudouchski is ******* lying. As I linked earlier in the thread, Trump and company shopped this douche to a reporter from the WSJ before Rudy started spreading the **** around. The reporter and his colleagues didn't buy it, and that is why Bob is making the rounds of conservative outlets who don't give a single **** about truth.

To be clear - is it your position that someone is unsuitable as a presidential candidate if people in their circle are convicted criminals, and if they have had business dealings with agents of hostile foreign powers?

I'm sure the Democratic party has some Clinton era character assassins around who can deal with this guy.

There's clearly been no bombshell. The story hasn't even gained traction with the Fox News Division. It's only being carried on enemy news outlets.

When they even lost FOX: ‘Our Interview Is Now OVER’: Giuliani Erupts on Fox’s Kennedy Over Biden, Shouts at Her for ‘Outrageous Defamation’

The sequence starting at minute 7 is delicious.
