Wherein we learn more of why the NY Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop had to be suppressed.
*Cognitive dissonance warning:*
*Those who get their news from Facebook may experience paradigm dysphoria.*
The first 3 links will refresh your memory if needed, but aren’t necessary to peruse. They’re documentation. The last is longish, but documents a Swallwell-type honey trap previously unknown. That was during Hunter’s dalliance with CEFC China Energy (a CCP oil conglomerate), which was later (2018) to collapse when its secretary general Patrick Ho was convicted of bribery in a US federal prosecution. Hunter had described Ho as ‘spy chief of China.’
Hunter’s continuing relationship with BHR Equity Investment Fund Management Company is a separate issue.
It’s NPR, so Republicans are “reacting” “without evidence” to Hunter Biden’s promise to divest his 10% ownership of BHR, co-owned by the CCP’s Bank of China.
Hunter Biden to step down from Chinese board
In a weasel-worded whitewash “fact check” Politifact does reveal some of BHR’s dealings:
Fact-checking claims about Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and China
“Reuters has reported that BHR also invested in China General Nuclear Power Corp, a state-owned company. The company employed a naturalized U.S. citizen and nuclear engineer, Allen Ho, who was indicted in the United States in 2016 for allegedly enlisting U.S.-based nuclear experts to assist in developing and producing special nuclear material in China. “Prosecuting those who unlawfully facilitate the acquisition of sensitive nuclear technology by foreign nations continues to be a top priority of the National Security Division,” the Justice Department said its news release about Ho’s sentencing to 24 months in prison.”
That directly follows this quote from a Boston College political scientist:
“[W]hat was known as the Obama administration pivot toward Asia began in 2010. This predated the creation of BHR. [So?]
“This policy shift aimed to resist Chinese security policy initiatives,” Ross said. “Overall security and economic trends reflected a significant hardening of U.S. policy toward China, as compared to both the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. For instance, U.S. policy developed greater security cooperation with South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines to strengthen the alliances and to better contend with Chinese policy.”
But Ross said that he knows of “no U.S. agreements with China that entailed U.S. security interests, much less that compromised U.S. security.”
He must have a different definition of “U.S. agreements” and/or “security interest” than I do. IAC, the Allen Ho indictment was known before Hunter took a $420,000 (2017) ownership stake in BHR.
As of April 29th, 2021:
100 Days Into Biden’s Presidency, Hunter Still Owns Stake In Chinese Private Equity Firm, Business Records Show
“Joe Biden promised in October 2019 that if elected president, nobody in his family would have any business relationship with any foreign corporation or country.
“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, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country,” Joe Biden told reporters in Iowa. “Period. Period. End of story.””
Now, the last BHR business filing is from July 2020; 9 months after the promises. Maybe Hunter is shut of the ChiComs by May of 2021. However, Hunter’s lawyer, the White House, and BHR Equity have all declined to comment. You’d expect they would all be happy to tell us if Hunter did, indeed, divest.

This is the new part. The UK Daily Mail again does what our media refuses to do.
EXCLUSIVE: ‘Your doggy chain necklace is waiting for you.’ Flirty messages from Hunter Biden’s Chinese-American secretary, 29, who worked for him when he partnered with the ‘spy chief of China’ are revealed
It’s harder than it seems to extract yourself from CCP “investments” when you leave blackmail material on a laptop you abandon.
