There long have been concerns that Hunter Biden, and others in the Biden family, were selling access to Joe Biden – as vice president and now president.
There’s evidence of significant payments to the family – for which there was no apparent reason.
Just this week, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., released a summary of bank records showing how a $3 million payment from a Chinese company came into the United States, was broken up and eventually infused $1.3 million into the accounts of President Joe Biden’s family members.
Now Jonathan Turley, the Shapiro chair of public interest law at George Washington University, criminal defense attorney, columnist, and legal analyst, and expert witness before Congress on multiple occasions, has termed that influence peddling, a “raw form of corruption.”
“The Biden family business has long been influence peddling and the extent of these transactions is breathtaking,” he wrote. “For those of us who have denounced influence peddling for years in both parties, the Biden family is in a class to itself. The family has long been associated with influence peddling to the degree that they could add an access key to their family crest.”
…Apologists are already objecting that influence peddling is perfectly legal. Indeed, it is a virtual cottage industry in D.C. However, it is also a raw form of corruption that is being largely ignored by the media…

A report at Just the News explained Comer found that a Biden family associate, John Robinson Walker, had used his company to “transfer money to Biden family members.”

The committee said “it traced a $3 million payment that was sent from a Chinese company to Walker in March 2017 – just two months after Joe Biden stepped down as vice president – and then money totaling $1.3 million was distributed to accounts tied to Hallie Biden, the widow of the late presidential son Beau Biden, presidential brother James Biden and presidential son Hunter Biden,” according to the report.
A fourth “Biden” also was paid.
Of course, there’s also been evidence of payments to the Bidens from other sources that have been unfriendly to the United States, including one apparently involving millions that came from Russia.
Comer’s report said, “The committee is concerned about the national security implications of a president’s or vice president’s immediate family members receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals or companies without any oversight. Current financial disclosure laws and regulations do not require non-dependent family members to provide any information to the public.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.
This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.
This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.
Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.
That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
