(FreedomWire.org) – Hunter Biden recorded himself boasting that his father will adopt political positions at his command, in an audio recording recovered from his authenticated laptop.

“He’ll talk about anything that I want him to, that he believes in,” Biden said in reference to his father, Joe Biden, in the Dec. 3, 2018, recording. “If I say it’s important to me, then he will work a way in which to make it a part of his platform. My dad respects me more than he respects anyone in the world, and I know that to be certain, so it’s not going to be about whether it affects his politics.”

Hunter’s admission adds another layer of concern about the national security issues surrounding the Biden presidency.

Hunter Biden has been under immense scrutiny since the 2020 election campaign for his cashing in on his father’s name in multiple international deals. He has been under federal investigation since at least the Obama administration, and has been the subject of a widening tax probe since 2018.

One authenticated recording of Hunter Biden uncovered by the National Pulse revealed the president’s son acknowledging that one of his business partners was the “f***ing spy chief of China.”

Hunter Biden’s business ties to his father Joe Biden’s administrations have been shown to be extensive. Hunter’s ‘shady’ associates were found to have visited the White House on numerous occasions. Hunter Biden’s longtime business associate Eric Schwerin, the president of now-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners, was found to have visited the White House at least 27 times during the Obama-Biden administration.

Such disturbing revelations have led Congressmen like Rep. James Comer (R-KY) to deem Hunter Biden a “national security threat,” adding to the growing chorus of those calling for a Special Counsel to investigation the Biden family for being compromised by foreign interests.

Then-President-elect Joe Biden went on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show in December 2020 to defend Hunter Biden.

“We have great confidence in our son. I am not concerned about any accusations made against him. It’s used to get to me. I think it’s kind of foul play,” Joe Biden said of his son. “But look, it is what it is, and he’s a grown man. He is the smartest man I know — I mean from a pure intellectual capacity. And as long as he’s good, we’re good.”

(FreedomWire.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke at the opening session of the elite 2022 Aspen Ideas Climate Conference in Miami. While on stage, Pelosi referred to the Republican Party as a ‘”cult.”

“You don’t want me to get too political here, do you?” Pelosi asked the audience.

“I mean, the fossil fuel industry, they weigh in so significantly,” she continued. “I mean, how could it be that nobody in the Senate cares about climate?”

Pelosi continued, “So rather than saying, ‘Well, we have to defeat them,’ no, let’s just try to persuade them. I want the Republican party to take back the party, take it back to where you were when you cared about a woman’s right to choose, you cared about the environment.”

“Hey, here I am, Nancy Pelosi, saying this country needs a strong Republican party, and we do, not a cult, but a strong Republican party.”

Pelosi has branded the GOP a cult before in the past. In 2020 she said Republicans had been “highjacked” by a “cult-like group of people and others who are afraid of defying the cult leader,” referring to President Donald Trump.

(FreedomWire.org) – Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of President Joe Biden, was recently on Good Morning Britain. During her interview she invited Meghan Markle to join the Democratic Party, and said Meghan would “of course” make a good candidate for the US Presidency.

Valerie Biden Owens, 76, said that the Duchess of Sussex would be “welcome to come in and join the Democratic Party,” adding that it was key to have more women in politics.

The Biden family have had a close relationship with Prince Harry for the last 10 years.  Reports have claimed that Markle has been networking among senior Democrats with a view of building a campaign and starting a career in politics. 

Owens stated, “It’s wonderful to have women in politics. The more women we have the better our democratic system will work. We welcome her to come in and join the Democratic Party.”

When asked if she thought the Duchess would make a good potential candidate for President one day, Owens said, “Yes, perhaps. Of course she will.”

Owens, was also asked about her brother’s mental health as well as his future plans. They pointed out that Republicans have accused Biden of being mentally unfit for office following a series of verbal blunders, such as referring to his wife Jill as the Vice President and calling for regime change in Russia by saying Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.”

When asked about whether it makes her angry when Biden misspeaks and people put it down to him not being mentally fit for office, Owens said, “First of all, his gaffes are truths. He speaks the truth.”

Owens replied, “Is he capable? Watch him. Look at him. He speaks the truth. Sometimes it comes out in a different way and people call it a gaffe. He speaks the truth.”

Owens revealed she was not “enthusiastic” about Biden running against Donald Trump for the presidency in 2020 because she believed Trump was “committed to destroying my brother and my family.”

Owens, who has been in charge of Biden’s political campaigns for over 50 years.

“I was not enthusiastic about him running against the former president, because the former president I believe was committed to destroying my brother and my family,” Owens said.

Owens added, “Joe is the right person at the right time for the right job and there are lots of things still to do to carry on the agenda. There’s no daylight between the private person and the public man. The American people know what Joe is about.”

When asked if Biden will run for President in 2024, Owens confirmed, “Yes! We’ve got stuff to do. Absolutely!”

Owens was her brother’s campaign manager for all of his Senate campaigns and for his 2008 presidential bid, which he suspended only to be chosen as Democratic nominee Barack Obama’s running mate. She was a senior adviser on the president’s 2020 campaign.

(FreedomWire.org) – Joe Biden announced Karine Jean-Pierre would soon replace Jen Psaki as his press secretary. Biden clearly expects Jean-Pierre’s status as a black woman and a member of the LGBT community will protect her from scrutiny and criticism.

However, the closer you look into Jean-Pierre private life, it raises red flags. S

She’s in a same-sex marriage with CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux, which could cause a conflict in interest.

“The White House did not respond to a request for comment about whether Jean-Pierre would recuse herself in dealing with CNN,” the Washington Free Beacon reports. “Malveaux’s colleagues include Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, CNN justice correspondent Laura Jarrett, and Israel ambassador Tom Nides’s wife, Virginia Moseley, who serves as CNN’s senior vice president of news gathering.”

“Suzanne Malveaux will continue in her role as CNN national correspondent covering national/international news and cultural events but will not cover politics, Capitol Hill, or the White House while Karine Jean-Pierre is serving as White House press secretary,” a CNN spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon.

But that’s not the only concern with Jean-Pierre. In addition, she is also a long-time anti-Israel activist which raises ethical issues.

Her history includes a past role as a senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, a far-left organization that has established itself as anti-Israel, in part by advocating for boycotts of the country that are widely considered anti-Semitic.

“Joe Biden’s promotion of Jean-Pierre signals to all would-be Israel haters that their efforts will be rewarded with White House appointments and promotions,” said Ellie Cohanim, a former Trump administration official who served as the State Department’s deputy special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. “At a time of rising anti-Semitism in America, Biden’s promotion of Jean-Pierre is exactly the wrong signal to send.”

“As a child of Holocaust survivors and as an American Jew, I am both appalled and frightened that Biden has chosen as his principal deputy press secretary, Ms. Jean-Pierre, who has shown essentially antisemitic hostility toward Israel and is willing to lie about and vilify Israel and Jews to promote her ugly Israelophobic agenda,” Mort Klein, CEO of the Zionist Organization on America, said in a statement.

(FreedomWire.org) – President Donald Trump scored a clean sweep last night after all 22 of the Republican candidates he backed won their primary races.

The 45th president’s endorsement in the hotly contested Ohio Senate primary proved decisive, as JD Vance pulled out a close race.

Trump’s spokesman Taylor Budowich said, “JD Vance put in tremendous work and has immense political talent, which put him in the position to earn the support of President Trump.”

Budowich continued, “but it was the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump that took a candidate who many insiders said was in 4th and at single digits in the polls, and in only two weeks, propelled him into a commanding first-place finish.”

“The power of President Trump’s endorsement is undeniable, his dominance over the Republican powerbrokers in D.C. cannot be overstated, and the promise of this MAGA Movement will not just define the Midterms, but it will win for years to come,” Budowich stated.

From Politico:

In the March Texas primaries, his first true test of 2022, all of Trump’s chosen congressional and statewide candidates won their races with the exception of scandal-plagued state Attorney General Ken Paxton, who is in a runoff later this month.

In Tuesday’s Indiana and Ohio primaries, Trump once again ran the table: All 22 of his endorsed candidates won.

(FreedomWire.org) – Senator Dinanne Feinstein is 88 years old and it might be time for her to retire.

In California, there are some Democrats who think her mind may be going and that she is no longer mentally fit to serve.

This is simply the way of things. If Feinstein worked in the private sector, she would have been forced into retirement long ago.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

Colleagues worry Dianne Feinstein is now mentally unfit to serve, citing recent interactions

When a California Democrat in Congress recently engaged in an extended conversation with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, they prepared for a rigorous policy discussion like those they’d had with her many times over the last 15 years.

Instead, the lawmaker said, they had to reintroduce themselves to Feinstein multiple times during an interaction that lasted several hours.

Rather than delve into policy, Feinstein, 88, repeated the same small-talk questions, like asking the lawmaker what mattered to voters in their district, they said, with no apparent recognition the two had already had a similar conversation.

The episode was so unnerving that the lawmaker — who spoke to The Chronicle on condition they not be identified because of the sensitivity of the topic — began raising concerns with colleagues to see if some kind of intervention to persuade Feinstein to retire was possible. Feinstein’s term runs through the end of 2024. The conversation occurred several weeks before the death of her husband in February.

“I have worked with her for a long time and long enough to know what she was like just a few years ago: always in command, always in charge, on top of the details, basically couldn’t resist a conversation where she was driving some bill or some idea. All of that is gone,” the lawmaker said. “She was an intellectual and political force not that long ago, and that’s why my encounter with her was so jarring. Because there was just no trace of that.”
