Joe Biden’s super PAC head run by a foreign agent

 

Millions of dollars are filling the coffers of Joe Biden. We wonder where the money is coming from. We know Wall Street, the globalists that they are, say to heck with the USA, it’s all about the money don’t you know. For those who wonder about his super pacs, I will give you this flashback. Keep your eye out for the name “Blue Star.” We should hear a lot more in the coming days about this fine company. First posted last October, 2019. As I say, follow the money.

Joe Biden : “I will not take Super PAC money or support ” ………. “unless I’m behind in the polls.” At least it sounds like how it went down. This might be bad enough but it is the “who” of it that’s to head the Pac is what grabs the headline. Good old Joe’s connection? James and Hunter Biden’s buddy who happens to be a lobbyist. The good news? We are moving on to Azerbaijan. Here it is believe it or not:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has a brand new Super PAC in his corner, and it’s being run by a registered foreign agent for the government of Azerbaijan. Larry Rasky, a lobbyist who previously worked as a top campaign operative for Biden, is listed as the treasurer of the PAC, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

“A former Joe Biden aide has filed paperwork to form a super PAC, called Unite the Country, that is set to boost the former vice president with millions of dollars in spending in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary,” Politico reported on Tuesday.

Rasky’s firm also represented a Bangladeshi political party last year, reaching out to reporters at The New York Times, The Washington Post, POLITICO and other outlets on the party’s behalf, according to a disclosure filing. The firm worked for the party, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, as a subcontractor to Blue Star Strategies, a Washington lobbying shop run by two veterans of the Clinton administration.

Blue Star has another connection to the Bidens: The firm advised the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while Hunter Biden served on its board, according to The Times.

Months after his father became vice president, Mr. Biden joined with Christopher Heinz, the stepson of John Kerry, then a senator, and Devon Archer, a Kerry family friend, to create a network of investment and consulting firms with variations of the name Rosemont Seneca. Mr. Kerry would go on to become secretary of state.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Archer pursued business with international entities that had a stake in American foreign policy decisions, sometimes in countries where connections implied political influence and protection.

Among the Americans brought in by Hunter Biden’s American business partners to help fend off the investigations was Blue Star Strategies, a consulting firm run by Clinton administration veterans that had done substantial work in Ukraine.

A team from Blue Star, and an American lawyer Blue Star hired, John D. Buretta, who had served as a senior official in the Obama Justice Department, held two previously unreported meetings in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, with Mr. Lutsenko, who took office in May 2016 after Mr. Shokin’s dismissal, according to people with direct knowledge of the meetings. Mr. Lutsenko denied attending the meeting.

Mr. Lutsenko initially took a hard line against Burisma. But within 10 months after he took office, Burisma announced that Mr. Lutsenko and the courts had “fully closed” all “legal proceedings and pending criminal allegations” against Mr. Zlochevsky and his companies, and that the oligarch had been removed by a Ukrainian court from “the wanted list.” Mr. Zlochevsky returned to the country.

Politico reported in August that Rasky also explored going into business with Hunter Biden and James Biden, the former vice president’s younger brother. At one point, Rasky planned to provide a million dollars towards the Bidens’ purchase of Paradigm Global Advisors, a hedge fund.

Hunter Biden

 

“James and Hunter brought in Larry Rasky, a lobbyist and longtime Biden adviser, who at one point, according to court records, was going to provide $1 million in financing,” Politico reported. “Rasky did not respond to a request for comment.”

Postscript: Larry Rasky passed away recently from Covid.

From his obituary:

“Among the things we all loved about Larry was how he lived life fully and immersed himself in his passions with great zest –Democratic politics and his beloved friends Joe Biden, Ed Markey, Marty Walsh and John Kerry to name a few.”

I am positive there will be others who will be more than willing to fill his shoes.

Things are going very very well in the swamp.

Flashback: Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just days after the father and son flew to China in 2013.

 

For Saturday’s Flashback – almost to the year – I bring you news from last year’s swamp. It only took a year but looks like Biden’s son and his machinations just hit the news. From March 16, 2018 — bunkerville

The best way to money launder kick-backs apparently is to have the payments go through the children. If this story had been about one of Trump’s kids the howls out of the media would have been enormous. Look how far we got with Sander’s daughter? Chelsea? I won’t even attempt at that example. This isn’t the first we reported on dear Hunter: 

Bernie and Jane Sanders College corruption? Funneled daughter $500,000

Then we have this little number:

Investigators Probing Scheme Funneling Money From State To Kerry’s Muslim loving Daughter

but since we have Jeff Sessions as AG, no need for the swamp creatures to worry. Here we go:

The private equity firm of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after the father and son flew to China in 2013.

The Biden bombshell is one of many revealed in a new investigative book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer. Schweizer’s last book, Clinton Cash, sparked a FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Snip….

Joe Biden has yet to comment on how the firm of a sitting vice president’s son was permitted to bag a billion-dollar deal with the Communist Chinese government—nor whether they had any knowledge or involvement in the deal. More at  Breitbart and how the scheme worked.

John Kerry Greatest Hits of Asinine remarks

 

I have been blogging since 2009. I had no idea I had so many very special “moments’ of Kerry making an Ass of himself. I wanted to limit the remarks to short clips and statements on Iran so had to leave out some outstanding moments.  So here is a good jumping off point with a few good chuckles thrown in. Circa 2014.

 

Sure we are safer now than ever before in the history of mankind.

John Kerry says we’re safer than ever on February 25 2015

 

 

Here is one that we may have easily forgotten about. Kerry acknowledges that the cash may go to terrorists.

U.S. paid Iran ransom for U.S hostages from tax payers funds

The Obama administration is facing criticism for paying Iran $1.7 billion in taxpayer funds as part of what critics described as a “ransom” bound up in a controversial hostage trade designed to secure the release of five Americans long-held by Iran, according to conversations with administration officials and experts critical of the agreement.

Under the terms of the settlement, Iran will be paid a $400 million balance, plus an additional $1.3 billion in interest from the taxpayer fund, according to a State Department official.

And as far as the release of Billions to Iran recently?

Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry said money from the Iran deal could end up in the hands of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

“I think that some of [the $55 billion] will end up in the hands of the IRGC or of other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” Kerry said.

 

Silly us. Of course we all knew that the Arms and Missiles development and use was simply a throw away that we were planning on dropping anyway.

Kerry: ‘Arms and Missile … Were Thrown in as Add-Ons’ to Iran Deal

 Weekly Standard:

Secretary of State John Kerry told NBC’s Chuck Todd that “the arms and the missiles” were “thrown in as an add-on to this nuclear agreement.”

“So this [deal] focused on getting rid of the principal problem in the region, which is Iran’s threat to Israel, their threat to the region, to have a nuclear capacity,” Kerry said defending the deal.

“We believe with this, for years into the future, we have this incredible capacity to have access, to have inspections, to hold them accountable.

“And by the way, even though the arms and the missiles, they were thrown in as an add-on to this nuclear agreement. It was always contemplated if Iran did come and deal on the nuclear program, that was going to be lifted.”

 

Here is go. Less we forget that Kerry asked for help with our sailors instead of rescuing them. They of course were then held by the Iranians. They also had access to the secret stuff on the ship.

Kerry, Ash Carter asked Iran to help when Navy boats had trouble, letting them be captured

Iran holds two US Navy boats in Persian Gulf.

This is both stunning and insane. Thankfully, the sailors now appeared to be safe. But this basically means that Kerry and Carter put them in captivity, at the whim of Iran.

 

I just couldn’t resist this bit of Paris Accord. Just to provide insight into our savant’s method of orgainizing his thought patterns.

John Kerry: ‘There would have been no Paris Accord if there had been penalties

“So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

On December 14, 2015 I posted this and see if you can follow his logic.

Flashback – John Kerry back to his old tricks of undermining State policy

 

For my flashback Saturday, or “whatever happened to” I didn’t have to go far today. Kerry breeches into the news, once more the traitor he has always been. Doing all he can to make sure his own idiotic Iranian deal stays in place by visiting the major principles. Meeting with Iranian Prime Minister Zarif whose son was best man at his daughter’s wedding.  I will get to that, but first some of the best from the past.

 

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement.

Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. Who was best man at the ceremony? The son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Zarif was also and Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

 

Kerry and his Iranian in-law relatives. Could he be black mailed?

Among Sen. John Kerry’s top fund-raisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

So he didn’t need to have an Iranian-American family member to believe that the United States should forge direct relations with the Islamic Republic or ease U.S. pressure on the regime.

John Kerry and Syria

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Kerry thwarted efforts during the Bush administration to diplomatically isolate Syria after the administration’s own efforts to engage the regime ended in failure in 2003.

…It wasn’t so long ago that Kerry made repeated pilgrimage to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011.

He famously used the adjective “generous” to describe Assad, as the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens recalled in a column:

On March 16, 2011—the day after the first mass demonstration against the regime—John Kerry said Assad was a man of his word who had been “very generous with me.” He added that under Assad “Syria will move; Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States.” (This is the man who is our secretary of state, and mastermind of the Iran nuclear deal.)

As Michael Rubin recently wrote in Commentary Magazine, Kerry’s staffers described “their collective cringe when, after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington referring to Bashar as ‘my dear friend.’”

The National Review detailed more about Kerry’s positive impression of Assad (2007):

After a “long and comprehensive” meeting with Assad in April of that year, Kerry described it as “a very positive discussion.” A month later, Kerry was back in Syria. His spokesman, insisting that “Syria can play a critical role in bringing peace and stability if it makes the strategic decision to do so,” asserted that Kerry had “emerged as one of the primary American interlocutors with the Syrian government.” Despite the senator’s interlocutions, Assad, it appears, has made the wrong “strategic decision.”

 

Now the latest from our traitor:

Former Secretary of State John Kerry is actively working to keep the Iran nuclear deal in place as U.S. weighs the future of the deal, according to a new report.

Kerry, who served as the nation’s top diplomat under former President Barack Obama, was an instrumental leader in the development of the 2015 Iran deal, which put Iran’s nuclear program on ice in exchange for relief from crippling sanctions.

The Boston Globe reports Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to examine how to preserve the deal.

Additionally, he has met and spoken with several European officials on the matter, including German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Flashback: Reports of Syria Removing its Chemical Weapons was greatly exaggerated

 

I thought I would start a “Flashback Saturday” post. On Saturday, a “whatever happened” to answer or review previous news I have covered.. Here is the first “Blast from the past.” The interesting thing is the date of the post April 6, 2017!

 

Will the Obama regime including Clinton ever be held accountable for the mistakes that have cost hundreds of thousands of lives? Let us never forget the “Arab Spring.”

Looks like the celebration started by the Democrats a bit early.

brought to us by

Kerry,Clinton’s sorry Syrian policy has led to this? 

Reporters aren’t interested in exploring aspects of Clinton’s job as Secretary  of State. One such comment not getting attention is her 2011 labeling of Bashar  al-Assad, the man almost  certainly (maybe) behind a devastating chemical weapons attack, as a “reformer.”

On the March 27, 2011, Clinton insisted, “There’s a different leader in  Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to  Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” (The Washington  Post gave this remark three Pinocchios. Clinton later backtracked.)  Yet, ABC, NBC and CBS have not reexamined the comments in the wake of the attack  or its accuracy.

A former senior Peace Corps official agreed to cooperate with any law enforcement investigations surrounding a scheme that funneled millions of Department of State dollars to a nonprofit founded and run by former Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, recently published court documents show.

Warren “Buck” Buckingham agreed to cooperate as a condition of an agreement with the Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney’s Office that would keep him from facing prosecution for a related illegal lobbying charge, court documents filed Thursday and made public Tuesday show. (RELATED: Former Peace Corps Official Who Steered Contracts To John Kerry’s Daughter May Avoid Prosecution)

Also as part of the agreement, Buckingham admitted to the charge that he lobbied his former Peace Corps colleagues to help his employer, Seed Global Health, secure a $6.4 million State Department-funded contract extension around September 2015.

Additionally, John Kerry’s State Department hired Buckingham as a consultant soon after the former Peace Corps official helped Vanessa’s nonprofit secure its first contract. More at the Daily Caller

John Kerry: ‘There would have been no Paris Accord if there had been penalties

We hear the sky is falling now that Trump refuses to redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world via the Paris Accord. But you know the drill. John Kerry, the master negotiator that he is, rises up in his righteous anger yesterday. Let’s just look how his mind worked when we first heard his words of wisdom on the agreement when it was first approved. I am sure “Public Shaming” would have really done the trick in compliance. It’s working great for his Iran deal he negotiated.

“So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

On December 14, 2015 I posted this and see if you can follow his logic.

While discussing the global climate change agreement made in Paris over the weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Fox News Sunday that there wouldn’t been an agreement at all if there were binding penalties for countries not meeting emissions standards.

President Obama, Kerry said, was determined to “get an agreement that would move the world in the right direction.” As such, Kerry said that the “best thing we can do” to get countries to reduce their carbon emissions was a “mandatory reporting requirement.”

In a bit of circular logic, Kerry said that countries would have to retool their reduction levels every five years to meet their commitments, but he couldn’t say there was anything beyond their own word to force them to so.

“The best thing we can do in an effort to try to change people’s thinking is to do this mandatory reporting requirement,” Kerry said. “The mandatory reporting requirement has to be updated every five years. Every five years, it is mandatory that countries retool their reduction levels in order to meet the demands of meeting the curve of reduction to which they have committed. So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

israel1TV reports: Netanyahu is wary that Kerry will set out parameters for permanent accord, then outgoing Obama administration will seek Security Council approval

Netanyahu’s fear is that Secretary of State John Kerry will set out principles or parameters for a Palestinian state in a speech that he has said he will deliver in the next few days on his Middle East vision. The prime minister fears that, in its final days, the Obama administration will seek to have a resolution enshrining those parameters adopted by the UN Security Council, the report said.

France is to hold a conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on January 15, and Netanyahu expects that Kerry will attend, that the Middle East Quartet — the US, UN, Russia and EU — will coordinate their positions at that summit, and that they will then turn to the Security Council in the very last days of the Obama presidency, a Channel 10 report further suggested.

Addressing the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem Sunday, Netanyahu reiterated his staunch opposition to Resolution 2334.

“We have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated its versions and insisted upon its passage,” he said.

Obama’s coverup of the dirty stinking Iranian deal deepens

The grimy Iran deal that Kerry and Obama foisted upon us only gets more sinister as the Obama bucks any an all investigations as to what the deal is. Earlier AG Lynch ‘pleads Fifth’ on secret Iran payments gave us a clue that the number of individuals involved runs deep. Now we are approving the sale of planes to Iran. My thought? Blackmail. We have  Iranian born Jarrett, but the lynchpin in the whole affair was Kerry who was so desperate to cut a deal even the blind could see the pandering.

Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

“But what if the regime simply decides to round up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

But I digressed. Back to the latest buzz on Iran:

Senior Obama administration officials in their final days in office are seeking to cover up key details of the Iran nuclear deal from Congress, according to documents and sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon about continued efforts by the White House to block formal investigations into secret diplomacy with Tehran that resulted in a $1.7 billion cash payment by the United States.

As leading members of Congress petition the Obama administration for answers about what many describe as a $1.7 billion “ransom” payment to Iran, Obama administration officials are doubling down on their refusal to answer questions about the secret negotiations with Iran that led to this payment.

And the Planes?

The United States said on Tuesday it had issued a second license to France’s Airbus to sell commercial planes to Iran Air, bringing Iran’s flag carrier a step closer to receiving new Western jets under last year’s deal to ease sanctions.

Although Airbus is based in France, it must have U.S. approval to sell planes to Iran because at least 10 percent of the aircraft’s components are American-made. Tehran provisionally ordered more than 100 jets each from Airbus and Boeing this year.

In a letter to the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon accused Iran of using commercial airline flights to ship weapons to Lebanese Shi’ite Muslim group Hezbollah. More at Free Beacon
