tax evasion

Bear, I'm totally on your side on this. Republicans need to grow a pair (or just one) and subpoena, file suits, do whatever to bring the issue to a head. Enough of this in the media stuff.

Now, speaking of penchants for not telling the truth...you voting for Schiff?? If ever there was a poster boy for "alleging a whole lot" and producing ZERO, it's Adam. And how about all those who jumped on the Steele dossier bandwagon, when now we know it was a sham. Now, I'm not picking on democrats, republicans do the same thing and their lies are shielded from suit/prosecution because of their position. Maybe both sides would be a little more careful in what they present if they could be sued. for libel/slander. We'd all be better for it. Right now, it's hard to believe any of our elected officials on just about every subject. We're all worse off for it

Adam Schiff............ lol..... What a joke.

Tony Bobulinski speaks

@KanekoaTheGreat

Chairmen, Ranking Members, and Members of Congress,

Thank you for this opportunity to speak with you. I am happy that the American people will finally hear the facts and evidence that I have been trying to outline for over four years, all backed up and supported by emails, texts, documents, records, pictures, and other evidence. The facts we are going to discuss today are important for America's national security, and I can only hope that everyone in this room and all representatives and officers of the U.S. Government take them seriously.

My name is Tony Bobulinski. I am a proud American citizen who has honorably served the United States in several capacities. For over six years, I was an officer in the United States Navy’s elite Naval Nuclear Power Training Command as a decorated Master Training Specialist Instructor. I later served as the Command's Chief Technology Officer, where I held a Q security clearance from the Department of Energy and from the National Security Agency. When I left NNPTC, I was the number-one-ranked Direct Input Officer (DIO) in the entire command in my final Navy Fitness Report or FITREP.

I am here today out of duty to God and country in a nonpartisan manner with only one party in mind, the party I served with honor and gratitude: the United States of America. While I have made a few campaign contributions over the years to Democrats, such as Congressman Ro Khanna, a member of the Oversight Committee, I am not a political person. I come from a family with a long history of distinguished service in our nation’s military. I grew up the son of a career Naval Officer, CDR Robert Bobulinski, whom I loved dearly. I could not be prouder of my father’s long and distinguished service to our great nation. His father, Alex Bobulinski, served our country in the Air Force for four years. I am also the grandson of Army Intelligence Officer Col. Fred B. Keller Jr., who, for more than thirty-seven years, fearlessly defended the United States all over the world and served in three different wars. My only brother, retired CDR Mike Bobulinski, is a twenty-eight-year combat-serving Naval Flight Officer, and my only sister, Stacia Bobulinski, has spent the last eighteen years serving U.S. military veterans across the country through the Veterans AdministraCon to demonstrate her and our family’s gratitude to everyone who has risked their lives defending America.

I share my extensive U.S. military roots and background with you because they are the lens through which I view this exceptional country and my responsibility to it. My deep commitment to America is also the reason I have elected to place myself and my family in the public eye, to tell the truth before you today. That comes at a great cost to my privacy, my personal security, and that of my family, among other things. However, I am happy to pay that cost. I am blessed to have been born and to grow up in the greatest country on earth. I take that seriously. Having been to over fifty countries around the world, I say that with the highest confidence.

For nearly four years, I have tried to tell the American people the truth about serious corruption at the very top of their government. In return, I have been falsely accused of being a purveyor of “Russian disinformation” and a political surrogate. My continuous efforts to inform the American people of the facts have been actively suppressed by both the United States Government and the so-called “mainstream” media.

I want to be crystal clear: from my direct personal experience and what I have subsequently come to learn, it is clear to me that Joe Biden was “the Brand” being sold by the Biden family. His family’s foreign influence peddling operation – from China to Ukraine and elsewhere – sold out to foreign actors who were seeking to gain influence and access to Joe Biden and the United States government. Joe Biden was more than a participant in and beneficiary of his family’s business; he was an enabler despite being buffered by a complex scheme to maintain plausible deniability.

The only reason any of these international business transactions took place – with tens of millions of dollars flowing directly to the Biden family – was because Joe Biden was in high office. The Biden family business was Joe Biden, period. Other key players have made this point clear as well: Hunter Biden himself has adamantly stated it in a variety of communications, as did another Biden family business associate, Devon Archer, in his testimony last year. Foreign nationals on the other side of these transactions – including from China, Ukraine, and Romania – have also explained how and why these transactions took place. Once again, I would call that extensive evidence.

The Chinese Communist Party, through its surrogate, China Energy Company Limited, or “CEFC” – a CCP-linked Chinese energy conglomerate – successfully sought to infiltrate and compromise Joe Biden and the Obama-Biden White House. This process started in the fourth quarter of 2015 and continued from when Joe Biden left office in January 2017 to March 2018, when CEFC Chairman Ye was detained for corruption in China, never to be seen again. Note that on October 21, 2015, Joe Biden announced that he would not seek the Presidency in 2016. It is not a coincidence that CEFC's aggressive approach to the Biden family happened around the same time. It is also not a coincidence that CEFC used the Biden family’s weakest link, Hunter Biden, and the promise of large sums of money to the tune of tens of millions of dollars initially and, eventually, the profits from investing billions of dollars in the United States and around the world.

Before we begin this in-depth testimony under penalty of perjury and charges of obstruction of Congress, I would like to highlight a few critically important facts:

1. Joe Biden was aware of the CEFC transaction, enabled it, and had a constitutional responsibility and obligation to the American people to shut it down before it began. This is because CEFC had been identified as a known surrogate of the Chinese Communist Party by the U.S. Government and prosecutors in the Southern District of New York as far back as 2016, possibly earlier. I would encourage Congress to gather all of the exact facts and dates. It is clear to me that alarm bells should have been going off in the Obama-Biden White House and that Joe Biden should have been aware that his own administration had red-flagged CEFC as a tool of the Chinese Communist Party. This should have made any business transaction with CEFC a non-starter.

I personally met with Joe Biden in Los Angeles in May of 2017 multiple times, to discuss the broad contours of our business dealings. The only reason Joe Biden met with me privately during the Milken Institute Global Conference and seated me at his head table was because I was a business associate of the Biden family.

2. Joe Biden’s immediate family members were enriched to the tune of tens of millions of dollars from some of our most dangerous adversaries, including the Chinese Communist Party and players from Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Kazakhstan, and other foreign nations and entities. It is my educated belief, dating back to Q clearance briefings I received in the Navy and continuing through recent discussions with experts, that under U.S. corruption laws, political office holders can be held as responsible as the immediate family members who are receiving money directly. This makes common sense, and Americans understand this. The facts we are going to discuss today appear to me to present disturbing evidence, which these committees should thoroughly investigate, with respect to possible violations by Joe Biden of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), Anti-Corruption and Public Integrity statutes, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

3. The Biden family – Joe’s son Hunter and his brother Jim - knowingly and aggressively defrauded me as the CEO of SinoHawk Holdings and as a member of Oneida Holdings, LLC, at the end of July 2017. They put Joe Biden and the rest of the Biden family smack in the middle of a $9 Billion transaction between Russia and China involving Qatar (specifically, the Qatar Investment Authority) and helped CEFC navigate through various issues before Patrick Ho, a CEFC executive, was arrested for corruption in New York in November 2017. Joe Biden’s status as the head of the family served an enforcement role – for example, when Hunter stated deliberately that his father Joe was sitting right next to him while demanding immediate payment of the $10 million CEFC had committed to the Biden family, as well as when Hunter demanded CEFC circumvent SinoHawk Holdings. The Biden family violated their fiduciary duties to SinoHawk and Oneida as they enriched themselves at the CEFC trough.

4. United States law enforcement appears to have been singularly unwilling to speak with me or to hear the facts we will be discussing today. I have never been contacted to provide testimony nor asked to speak with anyone connected with Joe Biden’s administration, including his Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, or local law enforcement. That includes U.S. Attorney David Weiss for the District of Delaware or any of the several grand juries I now know were convened after my name became publicly known. On October 23, 2020, I voluntarily walked into the Washington Field Office of the FBI with several phones containing years of encrypted communications between me and numerous members of the Biden family and their associates. That conversation, which was subject to False Statement statutes, lasted many hours and was never followed up upon by anyone in government or law enforcement in any way. Rather, when the House Ways and Means Committee recently released the FBI 302 report of that meeting, Hunter Biden’s lawyers laughably tried to use a single note-taking error by a junior FBI agent to accuse me, falsely, of lying about my attendance at a meeting with Hunter Biden and CEFC in Miami. I was crystal clear to the agent in my interview that I was physically in Miami during that time for other things and did not attend the actual CEFC meeting. Hunter Biden’s lawyers should focus their energy on the facts and the extensive indictments Hunter is fighting versus creating smoke screens and distractions with their empty threats. I have only told the truth, I continue to tell the truth, I have the facts and, as we will discuss today, I also have the receipts to back them up.

I sit here before two of the premiere committees of Congress: Oversight and Judiciary. I implore each and every one of you to remove your partisan hats today and focus on one party: the United States of America. I hope your focus will be on a thorough and extensive investigation and exposure of all of the facts and evidence - and on answering the question of how we as a country allowed the White House to be infiltrated by our most existential adversary, the Chinese Communist Party. I also hope you will hold the complicit parties, including Joe Biden, accountable for their actions, as well as enact new laws that prevent this kind of deep corruption from ever happening again.

God Bless America! I am ready for your questions.
No one in this whole debacle has more integrity than Penn State graduate, and wrestler, Tony Bobulinski.

tax evasion

according to reports, James Biden testified that there was no paperwork involved in the loan from Joe to James, and no interest was paid.

According to tax rules, interest is supposed to be paid at the applicable federal rate or higher and the interest paid is subject to taxation.

Now Joe could plead ignorance of the law, but he's been in government for over 50 years and god knows how many times he has voted on tax law. I found it interesting that this tidbit came out during the same timeframe that the head of IRS was identifying the $$$billions being evaded by big earners. I guess we can add James Biden to that list

Since when have mobsters paid taxes?

States rights, a Republican stronghold ??

Maybe not ............................


Republicans started the road down re-visited Roe v Wade . Haha ... fuk off. That's what you get when you sell your soul to extemist the religious right. Deal with it . Hope it makes them lose seats
uh oh, National republican committee urges candidates to play politics...just maybe they're learning how to play the game.

Don't you support IVF??

A few more bangs to ignore......

And Fac is short for fascist, amirite? it is so nice of Trump to have brought out your true nature. He has a talent for that, it seems.

He has killed your spirit and your humor and your character. And, your honor.

Of course, ETTD.
I'm sure you have noticed that the MAGAnuts here have no ability to compose a cogent thought. If you point out they are a Putin puppet, they call you one. If you inform them they are nothing but racists, fascists, cult members etc. their only response is no you are. It's like arguing with children on the playground back when we were eight years old.

NATO approves air strikes inside of Russia

Doubt if they try. Probably get shot down as Russia has good air defense systems. Hope they don’t try it because they need them in the war zone.

And it makes no sense to do so. They already have long range drones capable of striking deep inside Russia. They hit a Russian oil and gas refinery near the Arctic Circel nearly a thousand miles away. The blew up several heavy lift transport jets 600 miles north, on the other side of Belarus. Even hit a laser optics factory in the outskirts of Moscow.

Why risk losing top jets with specially trained pilots?

One reason for this statement would be to get the Russians to move air defense systems around prime targets in Russia instead of in Ukraine or even Crimea.

Costly Ukrainian defeat at Avdiivka as war reaches 2-year mark

BTW, thanks to you and Ski for making strong arguments for backing the Ukraine based on facts and providing specifics to back up your points.

I don't agree with your position, but nothing in this world (especially something this complicated and shrouded by the fog of war) is black and white with one side having all the right answers. That's the value of this board for me. When I see people effectively arguing their point of view and I have to think about what they are saying and compare it with my position carefully, that's good for all of us.

Well, almost all of us. The village idiots who offer nothing but thoughts like "you're a Putin lover" or some such crap will never learn a damn thing.
I have always backed Ukraine's fight, and their right to be a free state. However, they are corrupt as hell. We have zero accounting, and we're footing the bill for the most part, unlike Europe.

Most laughable is our PSU professor making false claims regarding NATO funding and giving Biden credit. Nothing could be further from the truth. Trump is the sole person that called NATO on the carpet and to hold them accountable. Then, they laughed at Trump. Seems they're no longer laughing. He has zero knowledge of military or NATO affairs. Why I posted the dire situation regarding Germany's military situation. Hell, if they were France today, regarding WWII, they wouldn't last a day before being steamrolled from a foreign power.

Thank you Republican politicians, we won in November.This is an attack on upper middle class white females since vitro fertilization is so expensive.

We learned give them an inch and they take a mile. We won’t get fooled again.
Nut sack.

A few more bangs to ignore......


....Biden followed through on a promise to further punish Russian President Vladimir Putin one week after opposition leader Alexei Navalny died in a Siberian prison. The sanctions — as well as those added Friday by the European Union — come one day before the second anniversary of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

“The American people and people around the world understand that the stakes of this fight extend far beyond Ukraine,” Biden said in a statement announcing the sanctions. “If Putin does not pay the price for his death and destruction, he will keep going. And the costs to the United States — along with our NATO Allies and partners in Europe and around the world — will rise.”

The bulk of the sanctions were already in the works for the invasion anniversary, though a few were added this week to target those involved in Navalny’s death at an Arctic penal colony. Biden met Thursday with Navalny’s widow and daughter in San Francisco and praised her late husband’s bravery......
Thank you President Biden.

Costly Ukrainian defeat at Avdiivka as war reaches 2-year mark

They don't have to fly them into Russian airspace to have an impact. At the start of the war the Ukrainian MiG-29s had air-to-air missiles with a range of only 60 miles. These were at a huge disadvantage against MiG-31s armed with missiles reaching out about 130 miles. The F-16 has air-to-air missiles that have a range of 112 miles. This new threat pushes Russian "safe airspace" back 50 miles from the front.

The F-16 is a multirole airframe. Not the fighter an F-15 is, but adequate. Not a ground attack aircraft that an A-10 is, but adequate. For an air force with limited resources this is a critical feature.

Another issue, knowing this is going to be a protracted war, is maintaining Ukraine's air fleet. Their allies already gave them most of their surplus MiGs and spare parts. As time goes by, keeping that fleet flying under combat conditions becomes a Herculean task. There were over 4,600 F-16s built and 2,000 are still in use around the world. Getting parts, and perhaps mercenary pilots, won't be an issue.

Finally, Ukraine being a NATO member is a matter of when and not if. This is one more step in provisioning them like a NATO nation and not a Warsaw Pact nation.
This. The MIG's in Ukraine are basically worthless as they can no longer obtain parts. Ukrainian pilots were trained in Arizona, and some in Europe. That said, the F-16's they obtained are 40 years old. Good planes, yeah, but they're not F-16 Block 70's.
