- Joe Biden Links President Donald Trump to KKK in Sermon to Black Church
Breitbart reports in a 19 January 2020 article that, when speaking at a Black church, Joe Biden associated Donald Trump to the KKK.
Former Vice President Joe Biden linked President Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in a sermon on Sunday in a black church in South Carolina on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“We can defeat this moment of hate. … This president and his — the Ku Klux Klans and the rest of them, they think they’ve beaten us again. But they have no idea — we’re just coming back. God love you all,” Biden told the Bethlehem Baptist Church in Columbia, South Carolina.
In a halting speech, Biden also repeated the false claim that President Donald Trump had referred to white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville as “very fine people” in August 2017.
“They asked the president what he thought, and he said, ‘There are very fine people on both sides’,” Biden claimed.
In fact, Trump specifically condemned those groups, as the transcript of his remarks reveals.
Trump had praised non-violent protesters on either side of the removal of a Confederate statue as “very fine people,” contrasting them with violent rioters, and saying neo-Nazis and white nationalists should be “condemned totally.”

This causes me to ask two questions. Biden, why smear President Trump with lies? Christians, why applaud pandering?
Why should a former Vice President stoop to lying about his competition? Unless his accomplishments are so dubious, why lie and smear?
Additionally, to the Christians in the audience at that church, why did you clap? Didn’t you realize that Joe Biden was lying to you?
- Biden Campaign Video Features Ukrainian Activist Who Said Hunter ‘Did A Very Bad Thing’
The Daily Caller fills us in on the Biden campaign video that shows a Ukrainian activist who implicated Hunter Biden.
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign released a video Tuesday that quoted a Ukrainian anti-corruption activist who said in 2019 that Hunter Biden “did a very bad thing” by working for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings.
The campaign released the video, narrated by rapid response director Andrew Bates, in order to push back on Trump allies’ allegations that Biden pressured the Ukrainian government in 2016 to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin in order to shut down an investigation of Burisma, where Hunter Biden was a director.
The video quoted Daria Kaleniuk, an activist with the Anti-Corruption Action Centre, criticizing Shokin as maintaining a “Soviet system of prosecution which intimidates people.”
But the Biden campaign appears to have overlooked another target of Kaleniuk’s scrutiny.
“I think Hunter Biden did a very bad thing and he was very wrong. He allowed his name to be abused,” she told ABC News in an interview that aired June 20, 2019.

Maybe this constitutes an attempt to get in front of the Burisma accusations
If Joe Biden has decided to use this as his means of answering the Burisma problem, he has some additional problems coming. As you will see by reading the articles on Frank Biden, James Biden, and others — greed ran rife in Biden circles (but, experience, not so much).
- Joe Biden Says ICE Shouldn’t Deport Drunk-Driving Illegal Aliens
The Daily Caller details how Uncle Joe wants to coddle drunk illegals rather than hold them to the law non-politicians must obey.
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that he would not allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to deport illegal aliens who get caught drunk driving.
Biden said during a 2020 election forum with Vice News that if he wins the presidency he will issue an executive order that only allows ICE agents to deport individuals who have committed felonies — “and I don’t consider drunk driving a felony,” Biden clarified.
“I would hold ICE agents accountable if in fact they stepped over my executive orders, which is no arrest of any kind outside of the schools,” Biden said. “You know, look at the — one of the things that’s happening is, particularly for the latino and hispanic kids, is the incredible pressure on them in terms of their sense of security.”
“You change the culture by saying, ‘you’re gonna get fired.’ ‘You’re fired,’ if in fact you do that,” the Democratic presidential candidate explained. “You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed, and I don’t consider drunk driving as a felony.”
10,497 people died in drunk driving related car accidents in 2016, according to the Center for Disease Control, which accounts for 28% of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S. States issue a variety of different penalties for drunk driving, ranging from fines to jail time to license suspension.

This should not come as a surprise. Democrats support criminals, not American victims
Considering that angel parents have never been able to get an audience with Democrats, this desire of Joe to decriminalize drunk driving should come as no surprise. Additionally, considering the fact that Trump (not Obama) created the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement office, nobody should expect Democrats to start supporting Americans over criminals.
As previously blogged at this site, Pelosi and other Democrat representatives have refused to see angel moms and angel dads who came to first Ms. Pelosi’s office and then to other offices. Since the Democrats have laser-focused their gaze on impeachment, they will not consider concepts that could be considered Republican (even through they are really just topics of common concern).
Joe Biden spreads money to Frank Biden, Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others
- NY Post: ‘Profiles in Corruption’ Reveals How the ‘Biden Five’ Made Millions Off Joe Biden Connections
Breitbart summarizes a report by the New York Post where we find that the “Biden Five” made millions from the connections created by Joe Biden’s political position.
Five family members of former Vice President Joe Biden have scored “sweetheart deals” and “favorable access” thanks to their connection to the 2020 Democrat White House candidate, reveals the forthcoming investigative book Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite by five-time New York Times bestselling author and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer.
The New York Post reports:
The Biden family’s apparent self-enrichment involves no less than five family members: Joe’s son Hunter, son-in-law Howard, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie.
When this subject came up in 2019, Biden declared, “I never talked with my son or my brother or anyone else — even distant family — about their business interests. Period.”
As we will see, this is far from the case…
Joe Biden’s younger brother, James, has been an integral part of the family political machine from the earliest days when he served as finance chair of Joe’s 1972 Senate campaign, and the two have remained quite close. After Joe joined the U.S. Senate, he would bring his brother James along on congressional delegation trips to places like Ireland, Rome and Africa.
When Joe became vice president, James was a welcomed guest at the White House, securing invitations to such important functions as a state dinner in 2011 and the visit of Pope Francis in 2015. Sometimes, James’ White House visits dovetailed with his overseas business dealings, and his commercial opportunities flourished during his brother’s tenure as vice president.

When I first heard that Hunter Biden earned millions per year without experience, I wondered what percent went to his dad
The first time that I heard of the millions Hunter made without experience, I wondered what percentage of the money was going from the drug-addled son to the power-hungry dad. When I heard of the threats Joe made against the Ukrainian government, I was sure of the money flow.
How much better it is to get wisdom than gold
Solomon reminds us of the central importance of a knowledge of God when he worked as the conduit for God’s Word and the book of Proverbs.
How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver. (Proverbs 16:16 NASB)
- Joe Biden’s brother Frank linked to projects receiving $54,000,000 in taxpayer loans from the Obama administration—despite no experience
Breitbart reports in a 20 January 2020 article that Frank Biden received $54 million in loans from the Obama administration (despite a total lack of experience.
Frank Biden, the youngest brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, saw his business interests benefit from millions of dollars in taxpayer loans to Caribbean nations during the Obama years.
The extensive overlap in Frank Biden’s dealings and Obama-Biden foreign policy in Central America is exposed in Peter Schweizer’s new book—Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite.
Frank Biden first set his sights on the region in 2009, as the Obama administration began to repair the U.S. relationship with Costa Rica. Tensions between the two countries flared under President George W. Bush, most notably on how to deal with drug trafficking.
When President Barack Obama entered the White House, he set out to mend fences in the region in hopes of inaugurating a new era of global cooperation. Leading the charge on that front was Joe Biden, who had long standing ties to the region from his tenure leading the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Shortly after the new administration took office, Frank Biden began scouting real estate opportunities in Costa Rica. A lawyer by training, Frank was undeterred by his lack of background in international development and decades old legal troubles at home.
As Schweizer notes, despite the professional and personal handicaps, business opportunities were plentiful for Frank, especially after his brother paid a visit to the country.
“Just months after Vice President [Joe] Biden’s visit, in August, Costa Rica News announced a new multilateral partnership “to reform Real Estate in Latin America” between Frank Biden, a developer named Craig Williamson, and the Guanacaste Country Club, a newly planned resort,” Schweizer writes in his book, a copy of which was exclusively obtained by Breitbart News.
The venture—officially sold to investors and the public as an opportunity to protect Costa Rica’s “breathtaking beauty”—amounted to little more than decimating the country’s natural wilderness to build a luxurious resort for wealthy foreigners.

In the second out of the series of five, there are many commonalities with the Hunter/Burisma case
Just as with Hunter’s case, Frank Biden got this high-paying position because Joe Biden was the Vice President of the United States. Never mind that Frank had no experience in development. Never mind that Costa Rica was pushing to get on the good side of the United States government.
So, based on nothing but the Biden name (and Joe’s link to the Obama administration), Frank was able rake in $54 million in U.S. taxpayer-financed loans.
- James Biden’s Firm Got $1.5 Billion in Government Contracts Despite Zero Experience
Breitbart reports in a 20 January 2020 article on how James Biden got $1.5 million in government contracts without any experience.
A firm employing James Biden, the younger brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, received more than $1.5 billion in government-backed contracts during the Obama administration.
The dovetailing of James Biden’s professional life with his brother’s political influence is extensively detailed in Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite—a new book by Peter Schweizer, senior contributor at Breitbart News and president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).
In 2010, shortly after a disastrous attempt at running a hedge fund with his nephew Hunter, James Biden entered the construction and international development industry. Even though he lacked background in either, James secured a position as executive vice president at the newly formed HillStone International, LLC. The firm, which was a subsidiary of the long struggling Hill International, was unique for a multitude of reasons.
“The president of HillStone International was Kevin Justice, who grew up in Delaware and was a longtime Biden family friend,” Schweizer writes in his book. “He was friends with lots of Bidens, especially Joe’s sons Hunter and Beau.”
Under Justice’s leadership, the company was setting out to pursue technology and construction projects in the Middle East. Of particular interest to the company were the millions being given to government contractors for the rebuilding of war-torn Iraq—an endeavor Joe Biden was tasked to oversee by President Barack Obama.
It was likely with such projects in mind that Justice headed to the White House in November 2010. During the visit, the HillStone executive met with Michele Smith, a top aide to then-Vice President Joe Biden. Smith, a fellow Delaware native, was serving as the vice president’s liaison to “global government officials and business executives.”

The broken record skips to the same old few tracks again – Biden, no experience, money
In geometry, we only need two points to draw a line. These three points (out of a claimed five) point toward corruption in the Biden family.
If Hunter, Frank, and James Biden all benefited financially when Joe Biden came into a high governmental job, then we might have good reason to think that Joe Biden and the rest have become corrupted.
