More Joy for Joe Biden on Xmas: Woman Hunter Married After Ten Days in May is Pregnant

News from Joe Biden’s “colorful” son Hunter!

According to the Washington Examiner:

Hunter Biden, the son of 2020 Democrat and former Vice President Joe Biden, is apparently about to become a father of five.

His wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, 33, whom Biden, 49, married in May, was photographed in Los Angeles showing signs of pregnancy, according to the Daily Mail. The baby will be Joe Biden’s seventh grandchild.

The news comes after a paternity lawsuit revealed Hunter Biden is the father of a love child with Lunden Roberts, 28, an Arkansas woman who was a stripper at a club he frequented in Washington, D.C. Hunter Biden repeatedly denied having intercourse with the woman, but a court-ordered DNA test proved he was the father of the 16-month-old “Baby Doe.”

Biden Almost Certain Not To Seek a Second Term If Elected

Looks like the Biden people are floating this to make everyone more comfortable with his campaign.

That might not be a bad idea. It’s pretty clear he’s not up to the task of being president for one term, so assuring people he won’t run for a second might make some feel better about voting for him. Eight years of Biden not knowing where he is, what year it is, or who the hell he is talking to would be too much even for the most diehard Trump hater.

He won’t make an official announcement, though, because it would turn him into a lame duck the moment he is elected.

According to Politico:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisers and prominent Democrats outside the Biden campaign have recently revived a long-running debate whether Biden should publicly pledge to serve only one term, with Biden himself signaling to aides that he would serve only a single term. 

While the option of making a public pledge remains available, Biden has for now settled on an alternative strategy: quietly indicating that he will almost certainly not run for a second term while declining to make a promise that he and his advisers fear could turn him into a lame duck and sap him of his political capital. 

According to four people who regularly talk to Biden, all of whom asked for anonymity to discuss internal campaign matters, it is virtually inconceivable that he will run for reelection in 2024, when he would be the first octogenarian president. 

“If Biden is elected,” a prominent adviser to the campaign said, “he’s going to be 82 years old in four years and he won’t be running for reelection.” 

The adviser argued that public acknowledgment of that reality could help Biden mollify younger voters, especially on the left, who are unexcited by his candidacy and fear that his nomination would serve as an eight-year roadblock to the next generation of Democrats. 

By signaling that he will serve just one term and choosing a running mate and Cabinet that is young and diverse, Biden could offer himself to the Democratic primary electorate as the candidate best suited to defeat Trump as well as the candidate who can usher into power the party’s fresh faces. 

Biden Can’t Defend Himself as He Gets Heat at His Own Rally

Biden just looks like a tired old man here. All he wants to do is deport people who have committed felonies, but his audience thinks even that is going too far.

I love when Democrats have to deal with the crazy people among their constituents.

Elizabeth Warren has the same problem during one of her recent events. Fortunately, Rep. Ayanna Pressley also speaks crazy and was on hand to calm the situation.

Hunter Biden Benefitted from Government Program Touted by His Father, Joe

How about investigating Joe Biden’s role in this? It’s a second time, in addition to getting rid of the Ukraine prosecutor, that he appears to have been in a position to use his role as vice president to help his hopeless son.

According to the Washington Examiner:

An investment firm linked to Hunter Biden received over $130 million in federal bailout loans while his father Joe Biden was vice president and routed profits through a subsidiary in the Cayman Islands, according to federal banking and corporate records reviewed by the Washington Examiner.

Financial experts said the offshore corporate structure could have been used to shield earnings from U.S. taxes.

Rosemont Capital, an investment firm at the center of Hunter Biden’s much-scrutinized financial network, was one of the companies approved to participate in the 2009 federal loan program known as the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility, or TALF.

Under the program, the U.S. Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve Bank issued billions of dollars in highly favorable loans to select investors who agreed to buy bonds that banks were struggling to offload, including bundled college and auto loans.

According to federal records, 177 firms participated in TALF, many of them well connected in Washington or on Wall Street. For investors, there was little risk and a high chance of reward. The Federal Reserve funded as much as 90% of the investments. If the bonds were profitable, the borrowers benefited. If not, the department agreed to take over the depreciated assets with no repercussions for the borrowers.

What a deal! You can’t lose! And guess who was behind the program.

Joe Biden was a key advocate for the financial bailout, which was approved under the Bush administration and expanded under President Barack Obama. He delayed his Senate resignation in January 2009 to cast his final vote to increase funding for the Troubled Asset Relief Program before taking office as vice president.

“These guys are not the most likable guys in the world,” Biden said about the banks and hedge funds aided by the government intervention. “But here are the facts … Had we not bailed out the largest bank institutions in the world, there would have been a flat-out depression.”

One of the firms that benefited was Rosemont Capital, a company led by Hunter Biden’s business partners, Chris Heinz and Devon Archer. The firm received the loans at a crucial time for Hunter Biden. The younger Biden had stepped down from his lobbying business in late 2008, reportedly due to pressure on his father’s vice presidential campaign.

Bernie was not happy.

“How can my constituents in Vermont get some of that money? Who makes the decisions? Do you guys sit around in a room — do you make it? Are there conflicts of interest?” Sen. Bernie Sanders asked Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Ben Bernanke at a March 3, 2009, Senate hearing. “Do you have to be a large, greedy, reckless financial institution to apply for these monies?”

Joe Biden Has a New Grandchild . . . DNA Test Proves

Hunter Biden is a bottomless pit of trouble for Joe Biden. Science has just pulled an illegitimate grandchild out of the pit.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic candidate, can welcome a sixth grandchild into his family after a DNA test confirmed that his son Hunter was the father of an an Arkansas “Baby Doe.”

The new family member marked a second landmark for Biden on Wednesday, who also turned 77.

Testing found “with scientific certainty” that Joe Biden’s son fathered the child, according to a motion filed Wednesday. He “is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process,” the filing said.

“Baby Doe’s paternal grandfather, Joe Biden, is seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America (he has already filed for the March 2020 Arkansas primary). He is considered by some to be the person most likely to win his party’s nomination and challenge President Trump on the ballot in 2020,” the filing added. 

The court document also said members of the Biden family were eligible to be protected by Secret Service. 

Biden, 49, agreed to take the paternity last month after 28-year-old Lunden Roberts claimed he was the father of her one-year-old child. Biden has publicly denied he was the father, but Roberts said Biden had admitted otherwise to her in private.
