    Democrats think walls are immoral and late term abortions aren't. The world is going crazy.

    Odd that Hunter would make the statement on a Sunday. It's almost like he doesn't want this to get much publicity.

    The son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden plans to step down from the board of a Chinese-based private-equity company amid intense criticism from President Trump that he profited from his fatherís name.

    Hunter Biden pledged in a statement released in a Medium post Sunday that he would step down from the board on Oct. 31 and not work for any foreign-owned companies or serve on their boards if his father is elected president.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++


    Hmm NOW he see the problem and resigns . Why was he serving on boards in foreign countries that his father had great political influence over. Something smells fishy.
    Shady Hunter Biden's decision to leave a China company's board doesn't mitigate his own corruption or his father's complicity there or in Ukraine. Why would Biden Jr. leave and promise not to take any more foreign jobs IF he didn't do anything wrong to begin with?

    He isn't cowering and Biden is unelectable. He is too old and now too toxic. More likely he is pandering to dad's donors who are in active retreat.

    Yes, liberal hypocrisy is funny. I removed the single quotes around the word implying it's alleged and not a fact - funny how they got there.

    And I know my tribe is hypocritical. Known it since it elected Trump. Are you just now finding out your is? BTW, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny aren't real either. Deal.

    You are less concerned about unqualified sycophants getting paid under taxpayer dollars than you are about Hunter Biden getting paid by a foreign company? ttwtt, you had a lot of respect coming from the DP left throughout the years. Don't throw it all away for a demagogue.

    Maybe it's time to really call out the slimy works of both Bidens ... like when the media still had balls ...


    Tom Brokow 2008: "... “That’s a reference to your son being hired right out of law school by a big company here in Delaware that’s in the credit card business, MBNA. He got about $100,000 a year, as I recall. You received $214,000 in campaign contributions from the company and from its employees,” Brokaw told Biden.

    “At the same time, you were fighting for bankruptcy bill that MBNA really wanted to get passed through the Senate making it much tougher for everyone to file bankruptcy,” he continued. “Senator Obama was opposed to the bill. Among other things, you couldn’t in fact claim that you had a problem because of big medical bills. You voted against an amendment that would call for a warning on predatory lending. You also … opposed efforts to strengthen the protection of people in bankruptcy. ..."

    Re: Hunter Biden to Resign From Board of Chinese Private-Equity Firm

    This thread is confusing as hell. Is everyone in agreement that nepotism is bad, or is it just that Hunter Biden is bad? I think we should prohibit all of these brats from making money off of their parent's name. I don't care whether they're a Biden, Trump, or whatever.
