Joe Biden’s family:

    Donald Trump on Sunday attacked Joe Biden as being an 'America last' president, attacking his successor for being in thrall to China in his first speech since leaving the White House. Addressing the conservative faithful at CPAC - the Conservative Political Action Conference - Trump said that Biden had had 'the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history.' He strongly criticized the president's decision to rejoin the World Health Organization, describing the WHO as 'puppets for China', and insisting Biden was unable to rein the Chinese in. Trump complained about companies relocating to China, describing China as a country that has 'ripped us off for years' and 'should not be rewarded.' Donald Trump on Sunday accused Joe Biden of being in thrall to China thanks to family ties He complained about Biden being too lenient on China, saying: 'That's what the Biden administration is doing. But,...
    Power comes back for most in Texas, but other problems pile up San Francisco area school board bashes parents on ‘hot mic’ Zoom meeting, president resigns A month into Joe Biden’s presidency, the First Family are still settling into life at the White House. They’ve decorated the private residence with"family pictures all around, our books, some furniture we brought from home," First Lady Dr. Jill Biden told People. The Bidens have always said that their family is their first priority, and even though the President calls his children and grandchildren every day, he doesn’t mix business with family, especially when it comes to running the country. In February, President Biden confirmed as much by saying his family doesn’t work in the White House, unlike the previous administration.“No one in our family and extended family is going to be involved in any government undertaking or foreign policy. And nobody...
    President Joe Biden privately told governors and mayors last week that the $15-an-hour minimum wage proposition in his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 would likely die.  On Thursday night, Politico reported new details about the meeting, which took place in the Oval Office last Friday, and included state and city leaders from both parties includng New York's Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Maryland's GOP Gov. Larry Hogan.  'I really want this in there but it just doesn't look like we can do it because of reconciliation,' Biden told the group. 'I'm not going to give up. But right now, we have to prepare for this not making it.'  Last Friday, President Joe Biden held a meeting with a bipartisan group of governors and mayors. Politico reported Thursday night that Biden told them that they needed to prepare for the $15-an-hour minimum wage hike not to make it into the final COVID-19...
    President Joe Biden has declined to comment publicly on the death of right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh, but if you go back a ways, you can find Biden calling out the host’s “malarkey” on the Senate floor — in the 1990s. News of Limbaugh’s death broke on Wednesday to lamentations from the right and a variety of reactions elsewhere, but when White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked for President Biden’s thoughts on the matter, she would only relay condolences for the family. “Certainly his condolences go out to the family and friends of Rush Limbaugh…I don’t know that I anticipate a statement from the president, but I can certainly pass on his condolences, and expression of support for the family,” Psaki said. Psaki was correct, no statement was issued. But Biden did reference Limbaugh repeatedly as a United States senator, using him as an exemplar of toxic...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson has blasted America's mainstream media and says it has sunk to a new low with its 'disgusting, corrupting love affair' with President Joe Biden.  Carlson also criticized the media's positive take on Biden's relationship with his wife Jill and the lack of coverage regarding first son Hunter Biden's sex scandals and history of drug problems.  The host opened his show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday with the argument that the mainstream media was 'our most corrupt institution' and accused the journalists working at those outlets of telling 'outlandish' lies every day.  Carlson used the segment to sarcastically point out how positive the coverage of Biden has been in the mainstream media compared to the Trump administration.  'To hear the mainstream media tell it, Joe Biden is like America's dad. A little blunt sometimes, but honest. A straight shooter, solid, reliable, steady. That's Joe Biden,' Carlson...
    After four years of House Democrat-led investigations into former President Donald Trump, congressional Republicans are itching to look deeper into allegations of access-peddling by President Biden's immediate family members. But their options are scant. Last Congress, for instance, Senate Republicans released an 87-page report by the Homeland Security and Finance committees into the business dealings of his lobbyist-investor son, Hunter Biden. However, this Congress, it is the Democrats who control the most intensive investigative powers, not just in the House but also in the Senate. "We need to understand the extent of the Biden family’s use of its connection to the president to enrich itself and any steps being taken to mitigate future self-dealing," said a Republican spokesperson for the House Oversight and Reform Committee. The dilemma, for Republicans, is how. That's because life in the minority affords Republicans very few avenues of dissent and inquiry. "The biggest thing...
    Now that the election is over and President Biden is installed in the White House, it’s safe for the truth about his character to dribble out.  And what do you know? Turns out the ethical standards of "Honest Joe" aren’t worth a hill of beans.  Starting with the obvious, Hunter Biden is still in business with the Chinese Communist Party.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted a little over a week ago that the president’s wayward 51-year-old son still owns 10 percent of Chinese equity firm BHR Partners.  MEENA HARRIS LATEST BIDEN, HARRIS FAMILY MEMBER TO FACE SCRUTINY OVER BUSINESS VENTURES So much for Joe’s promise that "no one in my family will . . . have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.

    President Joe Biden is enjoying the perks that come with the presidency, spending a weekend at Camp David while senators debated impeachment. The president even found time to play a round of Mario Kart with his granddaughter Naomi Biden, who posted a photo of the president on Instagram. “Secret service made an exception and let him drive himself!!!!” Naomi Biden wrote. “A little rusty but he still won (barely): Joe Biden plays Mario Kart with granddaughter Naomi Biden The arcade game is presumably in the bowling alley of the presidential retreat in the mountains of Maryland. Biden left Friday for Camp David, telling reporters he planned to spend Valentine’s Day weekend to “just hang out with the family and do what we always do.” The family also posted a picture of a gift of a hat for Biden since he is “‘literally’ President”: And just to make sure the job...

    One of President Biden's in-laws is walking a fine ethical line with his health tech venture capital firm that's leveraged his family connections amid the coronavirus pandemic as the new White House deals with a growing list of ethical questions. Howard Krein's StartUp Health was reportedly sought by executives from tech firm Yosi Health in December for help pitching its software that aims to streamline COVID-19 vaccine efforts to government officials. Krein, a head and shoulder surgeon and StartUp Health's chief medical adviser, has been married to first daughter Ashley Biden since 2012, a year after he co-founded the firm with his brother, Steven Krein, and tech entrepreneur Unity Stoakes. Through StartUp Health, he and his business partners have invested almost $2 billion in more than 350 ventures. Yosi Health's outreach was reported by ABC News, but Biden's support of StartUp Health is a matter of public record. As vice...
    Joe Biden's son-in-law Howard Krein is 'playing with fire' for advising health care start ups while his father-in-law is president, experts warn. Krein is chief medical officer for Startup Health, a health care investment company that has been focused on the coronavirus pandemic and has touted its connection to President Biden.  But ethics experts have raised concerns about his influence in government matters and on the president, particularly as Krein advises clients who are seeking government contracts.   'Howard Krein is playing with fire,' Meredith McGehee, the executive director of Issue One, a nonpartisan ethics watchdog group, told ABC News. 'If he gets too close to that flame -- if he is trying to either cash in on his relationship with the president, or he is trying to influence policy -- the flame is going to get him. And it is not worth it to him or to Biden.' Krein, who is...

    More On: joe biden Ex-White House interpreter: ‘canceled and humiliated’ for supporting Trump Biden is using the Obama-Trump playbook, not seeking unity Letters to the Editor — Feb. 8, 2021 ‘God willing’ there will be a packed Super Bowl next year, Biden says President Joe Biden’s “should not be used in connection with any commercial activities to suggest, or in any way that could reasonably [be] understood to imply, his endorsement or support”: So one White House official told the press on background last month.

            by Andrew Kerr  Hunter Biden is in the process of divesting his ownership stake in the Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed Friday. The confirmation follows a report from the Daily Caller News Foundation in January that Hunter Biden continues to hold a 10% stake in the firm despite multiple promises from President Joe Biden during his campaign that no one in his family would engage in foreign business if he won the election. Both the Daily Mail and Fox News reported in late December that Hunter Biden was in the process of offloading his stake in the firm. Both outlets cited an unnamed source with knowledge of Hunter Biden’s business dealings. However, Hunter Biden continues to own 10% of BHR through his company, Skaneateles LLC, as of Friday, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) introduced legislation Friday that would force President Joe Biden and his administration to abide by Biden’s own “dictatorial” mask mandate, Breitbart News has learned exclusively. Gohmert’s legislation requires the president, vice president, and all members of the executive branch to abide by the same standard Biden imposed on the American people. The Texas conservative introduced the legislation specifically to have Biden and his administration comply with the nationwide mandate that everyone must wear a mask inside a federal building. The bill makes an exception for members of the military. Gohmert said he wanted to introduce the legislation after Biden signed a “totalitarian and unconstitutional” executive order mandating mask wearing on federal property. Then Biden visited a national monument with family — maskless. Gohmert said in a statement Friday: For far too long, Washington elites have lived by the mantra, “do as I say, not as I...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended President Joe Biden’s trip to Delaware this weekend, even as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised Americans not to travel during the coronavirus pandemic. “He’s from Delaware and has a home there and is going to spend the weekend with his wife and family there,” she said. Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller questioned Psaki why Biden was traveling just hours after the CDC repeated their recommendation not to travel during the pandemic. “In order to keep these trends moving in the right trajectory, we must continue to wear masks, continue to social distance, avoid travel and crowds, and get vaccinated when it is your turn,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said earlier Friday morning during a press briefing. CDC advises Americans not travel during pandemicwhitehouse.gov But Psaki indicated Biden had special privileges that allowed him to travel safely. “As you know,...
    Joe Biden will take his first trip as president aboard Air Force to spend time with his family in Wilmington over Super Bowl weekend – as the White House fended off questions about why the president wasn't heeding administration health guidance against travel.

    (CNN)President Joe Biden said at the start of his administration that family conflicts of interest would not be tolerated in his White House, but not two weeks into his presidency, his brother's actions as a part of his employment at a law firm in Florida are raising questions about how he'll implement that pledge. Francis "Frank" Biden, the President's brother, was hired as a non-attorney, senior adviser for Berman Law Group, a Boca Raton law firm in 2018. The firm frequently touts Frank Biden's ties to the President, featuring Frank and his family connections prominently on their website, in ads and on social media. As Frank Biden was with his brother in Washington for the inauguration last month, the firm placed a two-page "advertorial" in a local Florida newspaper emphasizing the shared values between "the two Biden brothers." With Frank Biden's image placed prominently in the center of the ad,...
    President Joe Biden promised in an interview released Wednesday that members of his family would not be involved with government or foreign policy decisions. “No one in our family and extended family is going to be involved in any government undertaking or foreign policy,” Biden said in an interview with People magazine. The president pointedly noted that family members did not have an office at the White House either, presumably referring to former President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner occupying offices in the West Wing during his presidency. “Nobody has an office in this place,” he said. Biden’s assertion was a repeat of his campaign promise to keep members of his family out of foreign business deals while he was in office. “No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a Cabinet member,...

    They can’t quit the grift. No sooner had Joe Biden won the White House than his family went back to trying to make a buck off his name.  The latest sordid example involves one of Joe’s younger brothers, Frank Biden, appearing in a Florida law firm’s ad – on Inauguration Day no less. The ad used the president’s name to draw attention to the Berman Law Group’s class-action suit against sugar cane growers. "The two Biden brothers have long held a commitment to pushing environmental issues to the forefront," says the ad. "The president-elect has vowed to rejoin the Paris Agreement and wants to set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets."

    In a Monday interview with FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer revealed there are five members of President Joe Biden’s family that “have cashed in” on the president’s career. This comes in response to reports that Frank Biden, Joe’s brother, was warned for touting his relationship with the president in an ad on Inauguration Day. Schweizer advised that the “Biden Five” have been cashing in on the Biden name “for 45 years.” He went on to warn it will continue to take place because “they have never been held to account.” “It smells kind of bad because it is kind of bad,” Schweizer stated. “A lot of people are familiar with the Hunter Biden story. The problem goes much deeper than that. This is a pattern within the Biden family. I call them the ‘Biden Five’ because there are five family members who have cashed in on Joe...

Her royal highness will be joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, when she welcomes the US commander-in-chief for a “soft power” reception, the Sunday Times reported . Biden and her majesty will also meet one-on-one during the gathering, which other G7 leaders have also been invited to, according to the report. “There is a desire from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to have a very strong royal presence before G7 events, and all senior members of the royal family will be part of what happens,” a senior royal source told The Times.

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer reacted to reports that President Joe Biden admonished his brother, Frank, for touting his relationship with the president in an ad by saying that it appears as though Biden is attempting to appear concerned about behavior the Biden family has engaged in for a long time and that Biden’s real concern is how it might impact the Biden family. Schweizer said, “I think the recent report about Joe admonishing his brother, two things stand out, Sean. First of all, it seems kind of pre-canned. It’s almost like they’re trying to leak the fact that Joe is concerned about this, even though the family’s been doing this for decades. But second of all, notice what Joe Biden actually tells his brother. What he says is, watch what you’re doing, you don’t want to get hurt. There’s no...
    The Biden administration only took over the White House last week, but it's already had to grapple with a web of ethical dilemmas created by the complicated business dealings of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's families. Biden's campaign was dogged by allegations that his youngest son, lobbyist-investor Hunter, profited from the Biden name, specifically in China and Ukraine. His lucrative role with oligarch-linked Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, for instance, was central to former President Donald Trump's first impeachment. And during the transition, it was revealed Hunter was under a federal tax investigation dating back to 2018 into his foreign associations and accusations of money laundering. Now Biden Inc. is causing problems for the White House. This week, President Biden's middle brother Frank featured in an ad for his Florida law firm, the Berman Law Group, touting his ties to the administration. The ad was quickly followed by...
    President Joe Biden is set to create a “family reunification task force” in a series of executive orders on immigration Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced Friday. Biden’s White House had initial plans to release the orders Friday, but the schedule was delayed thanks to the Republican filibuster against Biden Homeland Security Secretary nominee Alejandro Mayorkas in the Senate. The Senate broke the filibuster Friday and Mayorkas is now scheduled for a vote Monday. Psaki said at a Friday press briefing that Biden is “personally committed” to the creation of the task force, which Mayorkas will lead if confirmed. (RELATED: ‘Dead On Arrival’: Sen.

    President Biden warned his younger brother Frank Biden not to get involved in any business deals that would dog the family before the younger Biden touted his relationship with the commander-in-chief in an Inauguration Day ad, according to a new report.

The report follows the news that Frank Biden, a non-attorney senior adviser for the Boca Raton-based Berman Law Group, evoked his brother’s name in an ad touting the firm on Jan. 20 — the same day Joe Biden was sworn into office.

    President Joe Biden on Friday lowered expectations of his administration’s ability to affect the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the coming months. Biden made the remark during a press conference addressing the signage of two more executive orders: one aimed at increasing food stamp benefits and the other for workers’ rights.  “If we fail to act, there will be a wave of evictions and foreclosures in the coming months as this pandemic rages on,” Biden said. “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” [email protected]: “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” pic.twitter.com/t3NEs1Enwf — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) January 22, 2021 Biden’s remark comes after the president signed an order mandating both masks and social distancing on federal property — a directive he and members of his family appear to have violated shortly after enacting...
    WASHINGTON (CNN) — The new administration is working doggedly in its first days in office, but President Joe Biden’s four-legged companions aren’t joining in just yet. Biden’s dogs have not yet moved into the White House, a source familiar told CNN, but the pups are anticipated to arrive at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue soon. The family’s pair of German shepherds, Champ and Major, will restore the time-honored tradition of keeping pets in the White House after former President Donald Trump opted against one. Champ joined the Biden family during the presidential transition in December 2008, weeks after Biden had become vice president-elect. Major joined the Biden clan almost eight years later. The Bidens fostered him from the Delaware Humane Association and made his adoption official in November 2018. Champ is mostly light brown with a dark snout, and Major is mostly black with light brown paws. Earlier this month, the Delaware...

    President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill were momentarily left standing in the cold on Inauguration Day after the front doors of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren't opened for them – a breach of protocol caused by the firing of the chief usher of the White House hours earlier. With the world watching on, the 46th US President and his wife walked up the steps of their new home for the first time on Wednesday, as a small crowd of family members followed behind. The couple posed for photos outside the large wooden doors of the North Portico, waiving to the crowd as a military band played ‘Hail to the Chief’ nearby. They then embraced one another, before turning to venture on inside. But there was a problem: the doors didn’t open. For an awkward but fleeting period of around 10 seconds, Biden stares puzzlingly at the door before turning back...

    Only a day after President Joe Biden was sworn into office a member of the House Republican caucus filed articles of impeachment against him. As The Hill reported, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said Thursday that Biden needs to be impeached because members of his family improperly profited from his decades-long public service career. “His pattern of abuse of power as [Barack Obama’s] Vice President is lengthy and disturbing. [Biden] has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.” The text of Greene’s articles of impeachment was not immediately available so it remains unclear what impeachable offenses she claims Biden has committed. Her statement suggests that she has an issue with the fact that Biden’s son sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company and made other international business deals...

Our sons Beau and Hunter had been in the car, too. They pulled through without permanent damage, but not before spending weeks in the hospital. The pain seemed unbearable in the beginning. I remember vividly, after Neilia died, not being able to open the closet door of the bedroom we shared. I remember the anguish of smelling her scent on the pillows and looking at the empty spot on the bathroom sink where her toothbrush had been. I wasn’t able to stay in that bedroom; I sold my house and got out. It took me a long time to heal, but I made it through,...

    Coronavirus task force leader Dr. Deborah Birx announced Wednesday she plans to retire after president-elect Joe Biden takes office. “I hope I was helpful, I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in and then I will retire,” she said, breaking the news in an interview with Newsy. Birx said the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing lockdowns took a big toll on her family. “My parents stopped eating and drinking because they were so depressed,” she said. “This is what’s happening in households across America.” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany reacted to the news on Twitter. President Donald Trump has great respect for Dr. Birx and likes her very much,” she wrote. “We wish her well!” Vice President Mike Pence’s office did not respond to a request for comment. Birx announced her plans after the Associated Press reported she traveled with family members to...
    So the Hunter Biden financial crime story is now fair game? Imagine that. In the past few days, mainstream media outlets have been awash with reports of federal investigations into the Biden family’s foreign ties and finances, including alleged money laundering, influence peddling, tax violations and other such corrupt misdeeds. How times have changed. When stories broke about Hunter Biden’s high-paying, no-show job with Ukrainian energy giant Burisma, reporters fled from it. When Judicial Watch uncovered information about Hunter Biden taking five trips to China with his father on Air Force Two, which resulted in billion-dollar deals, reporters were unimpressed. When the New York Post ran an explosive series of reports on the scandalous material on the Hunter Biden laptop, the paper was banned from Twitter, other Big Tech sites censored the story and evidence-free reporting blamed the story on “Russian disinformation.” As Ari Fleischer commented: “The media is broken. Totally broken.” And...

Joe Biden claims he never spoke with Hunter about his dealings, and never profited from any group his family set up, but e-mails and text messages found on Hunter Biden’s old laptop hard drive — first published by The Post — show “the big guy” being referenced repeatedly. A federal investigation into Hunter is ongoing, and Republicans vow to continue to probe how Hunter profited off his father’s name, and what President-elect...
    A Friday survey from Rasmussen Reports claims that just 56 percent of likely U.S. voters polled believe that President-elect Joe Biden is their commander-in-chief. Conversely, 34 percent said he is not the head of state, and 10 percent of respondents said they weren’t sure. The findings come days after Biden was certified winner of the 2020 election by the Electoral College. Across party lines, 84 percent of Democrats said Biden is their president, while just 28 percent of Republicans and 51 of voters not affiliated with either party said the same. Elsewhere, 61 percent of Republicans said Biden is not their president, and 34 of those unaffiliated with either major party said the same. Interestingly, the survey found that just 52 percent of those surveyed said that their friends and family believe that Biden is their president, while 32 percent said they don’t, and another 16 percent said they are...

Yes, Colbert is a late-night talk-show host, not a journalist. But remember how much flak “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon got for being too nice in his September 2016 interview of then-GOP-nominee Donald Trump? Granted a lot of face time with Biden, the CBS host had a chance to break news...
    Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Friday claimed that President-elect Joe Biden should be impeached immediately after entering the White House next month. “Biden enriched his family as VP doing everything that the Democrats falsely accused Trump of the last 4 years,” he tweeted. “If they had any sense of principle he’d be impeached day one.” Alongside the comment was a Breitbart article that highlighted an interview he conducted with Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute, who investigated the Biden family. The author of Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, accused the Biden family of financially benefitting from their political connections and influence. According to Marlow, Schweizer’s probe revealed “indisputable evidence” that the President-elect is “running a crime-like syndicate” that allows his family to profit and get rich off of the family name; the author appears to support the editor’s claims. “There’s a direct link...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer stated that Hunter Biden’s emails make it clear “he’s also paying a lot of the family’s bills, including his father’s and his mother’s, with these foreign gains,” and “this is an issue of enrichment involving Joe Biden himself.” Schweizer said, “[N]ow, with the laptop, with the emails, that includes emails from Hunter Biden’s business partners…but also Hunter Biden’s emails themselves, we realize how the Biden family actually operates in this commercial space. And what I mean, Sean, is that it’s pretty clear, in Hunter’s own words in some of these emails, that he is receiving this money from overseas, but he’s also paying a lot of the family’s bills, including his father’s and his mother’s, with these foreign gains, these foreign funds. So, the point is, this is not just about Hunter Biden getting wealthy, and...
