In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden played a big role in promoting convicted scammer Elizabeth Holmes

To be fair, he arrived at Theranos headquarters before her scam was exposed by the Wall Street Journal.

Still, any Republican who associated with someone who was later convicted of fraud would be lambasted.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Then-Vice President Joe Biden played a key role in helping further the billion-dollar con job perpetrated by Elizabeth Holmes, lavishing the disgraced Theranos founder with praise in 2015.

Holmes, whose company falsely claimed to be able to conduct wide-ranging and revolutionary life-saving tests using only tiny drops of blood, was found guilty on Monday on one federal charge of conspiracy to defraud investors and three counts of wire fraud. She faces up to 20 years in prison per count . . .

Theranos touted Biden’s July 23, 2015 visit to its headquarters in a lengthy press release, calling it “A New Era of Preventive Health Care” summit. Both the company and Biden repeatedly posted on Twitter about the event.

“Talk about being inspired,” Biden said at the time, though he turned down the chance to have his blood drawn. “This is inspiration. It is amazing to me, Elizabeth, what you’ve been able to do.”

  1. When I read Carreyrou”s “Bad Blood,” a page turner by the way, I was stunned by the list of prominent board members, including General Mattis, Henry Kissinger, George Schultz, and William Perry. These were leaders in our government, and they didn’t smell a rat?!! My conclusion: being in the swamp too long dulls one’s common sense.
