PT, I know it is a long way off, but going by your posts is there any chance you have backed with some bookie, somewhere, for Biden to win the next Presidential election and may have taken "unders " are talking up your chances ?
No matter what odds Biden was for the next election, after winning the last election, even you must concede he has blown out in the market, not because the POTUS mid term popularity generally fades, but because he is not living up to expectations across the board.

No I haven't Bob. I doubt he would even run at his age. Look for a promising Governor at the right time and place in a couple of years.

We still dont have clear cut Senates here despite Turnbull changing the way they get elected(quotas) to get rid of most of the non aligned minor parties. It is expected to get closer to a majority for someone soon though.

" . . . in 2017, multi-millionaire Joe Biden skirted his payroll taxes — the very taxes that fund Medicare and Obamacare,' said Representative Jim Banks, of Indiana, chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee.

'According to the criteria CRS provided to my office, he owes the IRS and the American people hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes.

'Every American should know about Joe Biden's tax hypocrisy,' Banks added.  

Banks said the report shows Biden improperly used 'S corporations', the same tax loophole that the Obama administration tried and failed to close, to substantially lower his Medicare tax on speaking fees and book sales in 2017 and 2018.

Biden and first lady Jill Biden paid income taxes on those profits, but the strategy let the couple route more than $13million through S corporations and claim less than $800,000 of it as income eligible for the Medicare tax — avoiding the 3.8 percent self-employment tax they would have paid if they had compensated their income accurately, . . ."Shocked

The reason we know that Biden used the bullsh1t but legal private income as corporation income dodge, which I am certain all wealthy people who are not wage slaves in America use, is that we can see Biden's last 22 years of tax returns.

I can guarantee there will be far far worse in no-income tax Trump's returns, should they ever be released. You can put the house on that. And you know it.Wink

The Orange is now suing his neice for $100m in one of his bizarre kick the can down the road exercises in delaying his own criminal trial, because it was her giving the NYT financial records from when Trump ripped her off her inheritance and forced her to sign one of his worthless NDAs(Ask Stormy) to not disclose the details of the arrangement that led to the Manhattan investigation into the Trump criminal enterprise.

Oh Shammy!

That’s pathetically dishonest……

Biden’s image as a straight-shooting man of the people, however, is clouded by the careers of his son and brother, who have lengthy track records of making, or seeking, deals that cash in on his name. There’s no evidence that Joe Biden used his power inappropriately or took action to benefit his relatives with respect to these ventures


Amazingly you didn’t include this next sentence…

Cmon, pick up your game.

Hunter Biden's $2M Libya bombshell more proof ‘media lied to the public’: Glenn Greenwald
The release of the new bombshell report from Business Insider – that first son Hunter Biden sought an annual $2 million retainer to aid in the recovery of Libyan assets frozen by President Barack Obama while his father Joe Biden was vice president – proves the media has lied to the American public about the Biden family business storyline, according to investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Greenwald, who helped break the Edward Snowden-NSA story and now writes on Substack, told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that this report on Hunter's nefarious alleged business dealings adds to "overwhelming evidence" that the emails found on the 51-year-old Biden's laptop are authentic.Shocked

Shammy, I actually feel sorry for you, your hero Donny won't even release his tax returns because we all know what they'll reveal, Biden reveals his showing activities that ALL rich people will be doing in America, your hero Donny uses the highest office in the land to give his kids a leg up and your busy running about telling everyone that Biden is bad because his brother and son may have used his name as a leg up for their own careers.  Hypocrite much?

You sound like the kid who saw his hero passed out drunk in the gutter and took it so bad that he is telling all his mates his hero's rival is even worse.

Actually Fox lawyers defending him in court asserted that, and the judge stated in her judgement.

  • A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit against Fox News after lawyers for the network argued that no “reasonable viewer” would take the network’s primetime star Tucker Carlson seriously.

Breaking: The Arizona Cyber Ninja recount has finally finished and Biden declared the winner for the 37th time.

The Ninja recount actually found 350 extra Biden votes.

Texas nutjob Trumpanzee COVID mask denier Governor Greg Abbott(something about that name) immediately announced Texas needs another recount even though Trump won by 640,000 votes.

LOLMaybe we should revisit the post because apparently the posse can't read.

"The release of the new bombshell report from Business Insider – that first son Hunter Biden sought an annual $2 million retainer to aid in the recovery of Libyan assets frozen by President Barack Obama while his father Joe Biden was vice president – proves the media has lied to the American public about the Biden family business storyline, according to investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Greenwald, who helped break the Edward Snowden-NSA story and now writes on Substack, . . ."

Where in this quote does it say Tucker contributed ?  Greenwald is a well respected journalist.  He was being interviewed by Tucker.  I assume Tucker was listening, not speaking.  I feel sorry for TBV that apparently none of its TDS posse is capable of reading comprehension or retention.LOLLOLLOL

If you are a Trumpist you have disqualified yourself from objecting to atrocious personal and business behaviour because ipso facto you have shown that you don't care, no matter how bad it is.

But give it a good go, cyclops.Big smile

Who was that idiot who asked SOS Blinkin about Hunter Biden and Burisma during the serious hearings on Afghanistan last week? Has the fever dream now expanded into there too or was it just same old same old Trumpanzee garbage that MAGA cultists feed off?

The Emerging Artistry of Hunter Biden

His upcoming solo show is a headache for the White House—and a window into the murky finances of the international art market.


https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/09/hunter-bidens-art-show-is-a-window-into-a-very-murky-world/620154/

At some point in the coming weeks, hundreds of thousands of dollars will be funneled to the son of the sitting American president—and none of us will know anything about who sent the money, or where it originally came from, or why anyone chose to send it in the first place.

The transactions will nominally center on artwork created by Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son. After spending years working alongside post-Soviet oligarchs—work that complicated his father’s anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine—Hunter has tossed on a new hat as an emerging “artist.” CNN has reported that his debut shows—one in Los Angeles, another in New York—will be held in late September, though the dates haven’t been announced (which may be because of the scrutiny the sales have received). Whenever they happen, Hunter will make the transition from unqualified oil-and-gas adviser to budding Basquiat—and will offer his artwork to the highest bidders his gallery can attract. The sales have raised concerns that buyers will purchase the art to curry favor with the president, creating an ethics minefield for the White House.

...As of now, the Biden administration appears caught between the appearance of something wildly untoward and the reality that there’s not a whole lot it can do about the situation. Hunter remains a private citizen and is allowed to sell his scribblings to whomever he’d like, regardless of the provenance of the funds and the buyer’s motivation. Attempting to untangle this Gordian knot of ethical concerns, the White House and the gallerist struck a deal in July. Although the full details haven’t been revealed, both CNN and CBS have reported a number of particulars. Per the agreement, Hunter will supposedly never know the identity of the buyers, or even of the underbidders. If you squint, you could see how such a deal would address the ethical concerns. After all, if Hunter doesn’t know who’s showering him with hundreds of thousands of dollars for his paintings, how could they ever get in his good graces?

But further details undercut whatever protections the agreement may provide. Hunter will appear in person at the shows. “Of course [Hunter Biden] will be there,” the gallery spokesperson said. He’s supposed to refrain from discussing any sales and will instead “keep the conversations focused on the creative process of his art.” Nevertheless, he’ll be schmoozing with any and all potential buyers—buyers who are vetted solely by his own gallerist. (A representative of the Georges Bergès Gallery told me Bergès was “unavailable for comment”; George Mesires, an attorney for Hunter Biden, did not respond to my requests for comment.)

And yet there are no guarantees that these guidelines will be followed. There is no way to ensure that the gallery owner will keep purchasers’ names private, or that Hunter—a man not exactly known for his tactfulness—will stick to the script. As Walter Shaub, the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, said in July, “There’s no mechanism for monitoring, no mechanism for notifying the public if confidentiality is broken, no mechanism for tracking if buyers get access to [the government].”

In short, little will guard against the possibility that the buyers may be interested in something beyond Hunter’s paintings—and that they may be willing to pay however much they need for access to the man whose father sits in the Oval Office.


I don't see any way around the problem. Ban him from selling his masterpieces during the term of his father's presidency? Not possible. All you can do is keep a laser focus on his art patrons getting favours from dad. Have his patrons ever got favours from dad in the past? No.

Or

You comment on things that you confess to not knowing about which makes you.............
