New emails found on the infamous “laptop from hell” by N.Y. Post shows that in 2014 when Joe Biden was VP, his son Hunter was negotiating a huge oil deal involving a state-owned Chinese energy firm and the recently ousted Kazakhstan Prime Minister.
Drilling in the South China Sea, the oil company CNOOC is China’s largest offshore crude oil and natural gas producer. During President Trump’s last week in office, The state-owned energy company was sanctioned because China attempted to intimidate other country’s legitimate rights to drill for energy in the sea.
Hunter’s plot occurred six years before the Trump sanctions. China was already dominating the sea. The Biden/China relationship produced millions of dollars of income since then.
The plan would have apparently also involved the then-prime minister of Kazakhstan, who was arrested on suspicion of treason last month following his ouster as head of the country’s intelligence service.
The emails found on the laptop:
“shows Hunter Biden and then-business partner Devon Archer — who has since cooperated in a tax probe of the first son — discussing an offer to help find “investment opportunities” for the China National Offshore Oil Corpz”
That same month, both men were appointed to the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings — which paid Biden as much as $1 million a year — and Archer suggested that a deal involving the two overseas firms would set them up for life.”
Hunter got $3.5 million from Burisma. And when the Ukraine AG was investigating the company, Vice President Biden told the Ukraine govt if they didn’t fire the A.G., the U.S. would not give Ukraine the $1 billion in aid promised by the Obama Administration (it’s good to have friends).
The newly found emails speak to the deal with trying to connect Burisma and CNOOC:
“If we can connect the dots here between CNOOC and Bursima we can do only that, forever,” Archer wrote on April 8, 2014.
Less than 10 minutes later, Biden responded: “Thinking the same thing, fraught with many land mines- but…”
“Many…don’t even know if we could pull it off but it’s a major option,” Archer wrote back.
(…) A month later, on May 7, Hunter Biden emailed Burisma executive Vadim Pozharskyi that he’d “landed in Beijing” and that “one of the principal reasons is to discuss possible cooperation with CNOC[sic]/China and Burisma.
Hunter’s partner Devon Archer scheduled to fly to Kazakhstan and then to China in an attempt to negotiate an outline of the deal:
In the recovered emails, Biden and his business partner discuss an offer to help find “investment opportunities” for the China National Offshore Oil Corp.
Hunter emailed his partner asking how a Burisma/Kazakhstan/China deal would work how a Burisma/K.Z./China deal would look. Archer said he didn’t know yet. All he had was the deals that had been percolating in his head.
In the end, no deal was made. But others were made. In a preview to the latest news, a version of this story was written by New York Post columnist Miranda Devine and included in her new book, “Laptop from Hell.”
However, it should be concerning as China is America’s strongest economic and military competition. It wants to replace the U.S. as the world’s superpower. But this set of deals corroborates the reports of the Biden family’s close relationship and millions of dollars they received from the communist-run country.
At the beginning of his campaign in 2019, Biden mocked Trump’s hardline position on China, much earlier when he was running for reelection as V.P. he said:
In a 2012 speech alongside then-Vice President Xi Jinping, he declared, “I believe that a rising China is a positive development — not only for China but also for the United States and the world. It will fuel economic growth and prosperity, and a rising China will bring to the fore a new partner with whom we can have help meeting the global challenges we all face.” In that same speech, Biden declared, “China has responded to our concerns about procurement policies and established a high-level body to strengthen enforcement of intellectual property rights as well.”
Just before the 2020 election, the N.Y. Post reported an email about another deal between China and the Biden family.
Hunter Biden’s May 13, 2017 email released by the paper before the election detailed a deal with the Chinese Communists. The confirmation came from Tony Bobulinski, a partner of Hunter’s in the deal and the CEO of his China company. Tony also explained that Hunter’s father, Democratic Presidental candidate Joe Biden was involved and was an “eager participant in a family scheme to make millions of dollars by partnering with a shady Chinese Communist firm.” big guy is Joe Biden.
On May 13, 2017, an email sent to Biden with the subject line “Expectations,” included details of “remuneration packages” for six people involved in an unspecified business venture. The email outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Biden and T.B. is Bobulinski. Also listed were “10 Jim” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” The Jim getting 10% is Joe Biden’s brother James, and “Big Guy” getting ten percent is Joe Biden himself.
Joe Biden was protected by the media from the scandal. The NY Post was suspended by Twitter, anyone who reported on the incident was banned from Twitter and Facebook, and it was largely ignored by the mainstream media.
Remember that trade deal Trump made with China? My friend Jazz Shaw reported about it at Hot Air::
China and inked a deal in which the Chinese would purchase an extra $200 billion worth of United States exports over the coming two years. It was, at the time, viewed as a serious coup for Trump who was still hustling to grow the economy as rapidly as possible… As it turns out, China failed to purchase the full $200 billion in U.S. exports. Read all the facts at Jazz’s Hot Air article.
There are too many other examples of the Biden/China relationship published on this site .too many to be included here. An even broader look at family Biden and China was reported in Peter Schweizer’s new book “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.” Peter also wrote Clinton Cash, which exposed Hillary Clinton’s pay-for-play deals during her tenure as Secretary of State. I must admit that I am only halfway through the book, but so far, the revelations are stunning— It’s a must-read.
The bottom line is that at a crucial time in the America/China relationship, a time when we have to show our strength because of China’s encroachment on the U.S. economy, China’s possible involvement in the creation of the COVID 19 virus, and threats to Taiwan. It is dangerous for America to have a close economic relationship with China. And don’t expect to see the mainstream media report on this or other Biden/China scandals. They are still protecting Beijing Joe Biden.
