Hunter Biden laptop reveals dozens of meetings with dad at the White House

Hunter Biden allegedly used the Naval Observatory as his hub to meet foreign political and business leaders while Joe Biden was vice president for eight years

Hunter Biden met with his father at least 30 times at the White House or the vice president’s residence. In many of the instances, the meetings occurred just days after Hunter Biden returned home from overseas business tips.

According to the New York Post those breakfasts, lunches, and other jaunts between 2008 and 2016 raise questions about whether Hunter was communicating messages to his father on behalf of foreign clients and cast new doubt on the president’s repeated denials that he had any role in his son’s ambiguous overseas business affairs.

The meetings were found in a review of the personal calendar on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. In addition to Hunter allegedly using the Naval Observatory as his hub to meet foreign political and business leaders while Joe Biden was vice president for eight years—Eric Schwerin, the president of Hunter’s investment company Rosemont Seneca Partners, also often visited the Naval Observatory for meetings with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Eric Schwerin, the president of Hunter Biden’s investment company Rosemont Seneca Partners, is named as a calendar invite recipient on 21 of 30 listed meetings, with a green check frequently indicating his confirmed receipt of the invite for meetings with the vice president. Schwerin was a longtime Hunter Biden business confidante, and had access to the elder Biden’s personal financial information.

The emails and calendar invites are a small fraction of data from the contents of the portable drive originated from Hunter Biden’s MacBook Pro, which Hunter reportedly dropped off at a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Del., in April 2019 and never reclaimed.

According to reports, between Feb. 15-18, 2012, Hunter Biden was wined and dined by billionaire oligarchs in Moscow, including one now wanted for murder. Four days after his return, Hunter met with Vice President Biden, again at the Naval Observatory.

In addition to publishing numerous such meetings from Hunter’s laptop, the NY Post alos notes that on Nov 14. 2015, Hunter met with Romanian ambassador to the United States George Maior, before heading off for meetings in that country. He returned Nov. 17, and had breakfast with his father at the Naval Observatory two days later. Just months after the trip, he teamed up with former FBI Director Louis Freeh to help Romanian businessman Gabriel Popoviciu avoid jail time.

The top Republicans on the House Oversight Committee draws this conclusion, “When you look at the whole Biden business model with respect to Hunter Biden and Jim Biden—it’s always been to pedal influence, to sell the Biden name and to promise potential investors and potential people who would pay for their services access to the government at the highest levels,” Rep. James Comer (R-KY) explains, “Not just in the United States, but in other countries.”

Ivan carves path of utter destruction

After devastating Florida, Hurricane Ian is headed for Carolinas, Georgia

A grim picture of Hurricane Ian’s horrific wreckage emerged Thursday, as millions of people in Florida faced destroyed homes, completely flooded streets and power outages.

The storm’s power turned out to be worse than many had predicted.

Unfortunately, families who did not evacuate have been left stranded as rising water tore through their homes.

So far, hundreds have been rescued from floodwaters, and emergency crews are still struggling to reach some of the most devastated areas.

According to the National Hurricane Center, a storm surge of 12-18 feet hit as destructive waves struck the coast.

Officials say the hurricane knocked out power to more than 2.6 million customers, mainly in southwest and central Florida.

Meanwhile, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) says that the next 72 hours will certainly be the most critical when it comes to rescue missions.

President Biden said there were ‘early reports of what may be substantial loss of life’ saying, that the numbers are still unclear but there are early reports of fatalities.

The President added, “water rescue is critical—Coast Guard deployed 16 rescue helicopter, six fixed wing aircraft and 18-rescue boats and crews. That’s just one element of the many federal search and rescue teams that were pre-staged in Florida.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis detailed the state’s “monumental effort” to help aid recovery and eventually rebuild.

“Those were really difficult images to see but we’re committed to restoring the infrastructure as needed. That is not going to be an overnight task. That is going to require a lot of love and care—it’s going to require a lot of resources, but we’re going to do it because we understand how important it is.”

Hurricane Ian could be Florida’s deadliest storm as it continues north towards South Carolina

U.S. President Joe Biden says Hurricane Ian could be the deadliest storm in the region’s history, with early reports suggesting substantial loss of life.

Biden spoke at an afternoon briefing at the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema).

Ian made landfall on Wednesday local time near the city of Fort Myers. It has led to severe flooding, high winds and storm surges.

Several areas remain submerged, and more than 2.5 million homes are without power.

Many residents are trapped in their homes and unable to escape. Search and rescue teams are working around the clock to provide assistance where they can.

5,000 Florida National Guard troops and 2,000 Guardsman from surrounding states have been deployed.

Eight teams with 800 members are carrying out search and rescue operations.

More than 200 public shelters have now been opened, housing around 34,000 people.

The National Hurricane Centre has downgraded Ian to a tropical storm for now but warns it will likely become a hurricane again later.

The entire coast of South Carolina is just the latest region to be placed on high alert as the storm continues north on its path of destruction.
