“We the people.” “A more perfect union.” “Government of the people, by the people, for the people.” It’s gone. The United States of America is no longer a constitutional republic.
America no longer has representative government—it has a corrupt oligarchy.
These may seem like extreme statements. But they are provably true. Evidence continues to mount that the nation is being led by paid-off politicians, unelected bureaucrats, woke generals, spymasters, media moguls, tech giants, elite financiers and criminals. Its highest office is occupied by a pretender to the throne who is controlled by a shadow president.
Finally members of Congress are investigating the criminal activity of Joe Biden. They still will not touch the crime of stealing the presidency, but they are finally officially probing the gigabytes of evidence out there showing that, in addition to the ongoing coup, the Bidens have committed numerous other serious crimes.
Most of the “Biden crime” headlines focus on Joe’s son, Hunter, using cocaine, driving recklessly, having sex with prostitutes, making payments to people who control and enslave prostitutes, and dozens of similar violations. The conservative research group Marco Polo has documented from his own laptop his participation in 459 crimes. Yet Hunter Biden continues to walk free, a defiant symbol of the power that radical-leftist elites wield right now to reward and punish as they please (“A Record of Corruption,” page 18).
But alongside the evidence of those more salacious crimes is extensive documentation of what looks like bribery from foreign sources. This includes unexplained trips to China under Secret Service protection and millions of dollars accepted from corrupt elites in Russia, China, Kazakhstan and Ukraine, all while his father was vice president of the United States—and Barack Obama was president.
How much did Barack Obama know and have power over Joe Biden’s long-term, multimillion-dollar political-criminal enterprise? How much did he use that power? And how much is he using it now?
Evidence of Joe Biden’s corruption has been public for years now and has surely been known to Washington, D.C., elites even longer. Yet it was not until January 2023 that the House of Representatives Oversight and Accountability Committee opened an investigation into the financial enrichment that members of his family have received since he became vice president in 2009. And it was not until December 2023 that the Republican-led House of Representatives passed an official impeachment inquiry resolution against Biden.
You would think lawmakers would be more curious. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stated the obvious in a September 2023 podcast with journalist John Solomon: “All of this is occurring while Obama’s president. None of this could have happened without his active knowledge. It’s just not possible.”
Bank records reveal at least $20 million in overseas payments made to the Biden family and their partners, some of which triggered Suspicious Activity Reports from the banks to the U.S. Treasury. This was clearly the Biden family finding numerous ways to sell political influence. But closer scrutiny shows that these bribes stayed within a certain limit. They advanced the policies of the Obama administration, promoting self-destructive “green energy” investments in the U.S. and actively diminishing U.S. power abroad.
Corrupt political dynasties like the Bidens and the Clintons are enriching themselves by selling off American power and resources. But this corruption is about more than the money.
This couldn’t have happened without Obama approving it, and he only approves what advances his agenda. As the Trumpet has emphasized for years now, Barack Obama is a destroyer who is dismantling the United States from within! Hunter Biden is a pawn in this plan, and so is Joe Biden.
They say the devil is in the details, but in this case, he is also in the big picture.
In the summer of 2006, roughly two years before Barack Obama selected Joe Biden as his vice-presidential candidate, Hunter and James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, bought the hedge fund Paradigm Global Advisors. On the first day, James reportedly told his new employees, “Don’t worry about investors. We’ve got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”
At the time, Joe was merely the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But his international prestige increased dramatically when Obama asked him to start campaigning for the vice presidency. One-term Senator Obama had little foreign-policy experience, and foreign elites thought that his policies could be influenced by a three-decade senator-cum-vice president familiar with leaders and diplomats around the world.
Hunter dropped his lobbying work during Obama’s 2008 campaign. But after Obama won the presidency, Hunter teamed up with Christopher Heinz, stepson to Sen. John Kerry, to start Rosemont Seneca Partners, a D.C.-based advisory firm designed to help oligarchs around the world “invest in Joe Biden.”
One of the most powerful oligarchs to take up Hunter’s offer was Mykola Zlochevsky, a Ukrainian oil and natural gas businessman and one-time minister of ecology and natural resources to then President Viktor Yanukovych. Not long before Obama let Vladimir Putin annex the Crimean Peninsula in 2014, protests forced the pro-Russian Yanukovych to flee the country. Zlochevsky needed protection from rival oligarchs, so he offered Hunter a position on the board of his corrupt natural gas company: Burisma Holdings Ltd. Hunter had no experience in the energy business, but he had experience in helping people “invest in Joe Biden.” For his services, Hunter received $83,000—per month. Last July it emerged that a reliable source told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that Zlochevsky admitted to paying a $5 million bribe to Hunter Biden and a $5 million bribe to Joe Biden. He claims he has recordings to prove it.
Obama, the master of spymasters like John Brennan and James Clapper, surely knew about situations like these. Did he use them to his advantage? We know that he scrapped a Bush-era missile defense plan for Europe in 2009 and allowed Putin to annex Crimea easily. His foreign policy in Europe, as in the Middle East and elsewhere, reduced American power and influence. Did Biden’s sources of revenue play into that?
Obama once said that “Russia was much more powerful when Ukraine looked like an independent country but was a kleptocracy that he could pull the strings on.” He understood that the weaker Ukraine is, the easier it is to control. The same is true of America.
Hunter worked on a number of possibly illegal projects for corrupt Ukrainian oligarchs. In April 2014, he was involved in negotiating an energy deal between Burisma and the China National Offshore Oil Corp. That same month, he received an e-mail from a vice president at the medical research firm Metabiota suggesting that the two firms could together “assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia.” Recovered e-mails on Hunter Biden’s laptop show that Metabiota was working on a special “science project” involving Ukrainian biolabs. Russian officials now claim that what was happening in these labs is one reason they invaded Ukraine.
It’s like Mark Bradman (aka Sundance) from the Conservative Treehouse wrote: “Team Biden wants money. Team Obama wants power. The Bidens use power to get money. Team Obama uses money to get power.” In Ukraine, the Bidens made millions pushing Obama’s anti-colonial vision for a neutral Ukraine, unaligned with the West.
After President Yanukovych was deposed in 2014, Ukraine ranked as the most corrupt nation in Europe after Russia and the 51st most corrupt in the world. The Obama administration took the opportunity to initiate anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine. Under this pretense, Vice President Joe Biden visited Ukraine half a dozen times. Investigations have since shown that Biden was a huge part of the problem.
Hunter’s boss at Burisma routinely bribed the Ukraine prosecutor general’s office to keep investigators away from the company. In 2014, Viktor Shokin was appointed prosecutor general of Ukraine and made it a point to investigate Burisma in a way his predecessors never had. The European Commission praised Shokin for his efforts to fight corruption in Ukraine. But Joe Biden felt differently.
During a now-infamous visit to Ukraine in March 2016, Joe Biden told President Petro Poroshenko that the Obama administration would cancel $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees to Ukraine unless he immediately fired Shokin.
Later, at a Council on Foreign Relations event, Biden openly bragged that he told Poroshenko, “You’re not getting the billion. I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” He recounted how he threatened to get Obama involved and laughed about how fast the Ukrainians obeyed his order.
Joe Biden used $1 billion in U.S. taxpayer money to protect the corruption of Burisma, his son and himself. Was Obama allowing this? As Biden said, “Call him.” And this was all on an “anti-corruption” trip.
The Bidens deny these allegations, just like Joe Biden claimed on one of his presidential campaign appearances, “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
More documents from the Hunter laptop show that Burisma set up a special account with Satabank, a Maltese financial institution that has since been closed down due to possible money laundering. This account was used to channel Ukrainian money to Hunter Biden, whom Burisma chief financial officer Vadim Pojarski said was hired to “protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems.” House Republicans believe this is the account that was used for the two $5 million bribes.
Shokin’s firing is now a central part of the impeachment inquiry into whether Joe Biden abused the powers of the vice presidency to enrich his son and himself. This may well be the greatest monetary corruption scandal in the history of American politics.
Barack Obama gave Joe Biden responsibility for U.S. relations with Ukraine because of the leverage he had with corrupt officials across Eastern Europe. But Hunter’s work with Burisma and Metabiota were just part of this money-laundering scheme that also involves Chinese, Kazakh, Romanian, Russian and other foreign oligarchs.
The House Oversight Committee has obtained thousands of pages of financial records showing how the Bidens created more than 20 shell companies to hide the bribes they received. These companies processed more than $20 million in payments from oligarchs. In an attempt to obscure the truth, these payments were made to at least nine different members of the Biden family: Joe Biden’s son Hunter, his brother James, his sister-in-law Sara, his daughter-in-law Melissa, his former daughter-in-law Hallie, his former daughter-in-law Kathleen, one of his grandchildren, and two of James Biden’s children.
What did the oligarchs receive in return for their millions?
It wasn’t advice on how to process natural gas or better ways to build ports in China. The only thing the Biden crime family sells is favors from the Obama administration.
Eric Schwerin, a longtime business partner of Hunter, visited the White House and the Biden residence a stunning 36 times during Obama’s eight years in office, according to a Fox News Digital report. That means Schwerin likely met with Vice President Biden about every three months. Yet Biden has asserted in public more than a dozen times that he never had such corrupt communications.
E-mail correspondence reviewed by Fox News Digital shows that David Wade, a top aide to then Secretary of State John Kerry, told some of his fellow State Department officials that Hunter and Kerry had a close friendship. Both Hunter and Schwerin kept in close contact with Evan Ryan, the wife of current Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Hunter was also appointed to the board of the Truman National Security Project with Jake Sullivan, who now serves as Biden’s national security advisor, for about two years.
More than a dozen members of the Obama and Biden teams have ties to Hunter, so the House Oversight Committee’s investigation is not just about Joe Biden’s son. In fact, this investigation is not just about Joe Biden’s family or Biden himself. It is—or it should be—about the entire Obama regime and how it used bribery schemes to consolidate its power over Americans at home and simultaneously weaken America abroad.
Barack Obama is actively destroying America from within. His use of the corrupt Bidens, now as then, is part of his agenda of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Biden bribery is a dire national security threat to the American people. Million-dollar payments to someone named Biden result in top-level government decisions that would never happen otherwise. And fear of exposing those bribes further influences American policy away from American interests. It certainly casts doubt on whether Biden’s uncharacteristically aggressive defense of Ukraine comes from his—or Obama’s—belief in freedom for Ukrainians or dedication to American interests worldwide.
The Biden family’s involvement with drug dealers, prostitutes and foreign oligarchs are nation-destroying scandals. But beyond this is all the evidence that, in spite of this, top spies and other elites were able to steal an election—and are preparing to steal another. America’s positions of leadership are no longer determined by free and fair elections. They—and the decisions and policies that come from them—are determined by a kind of mafia, much like the corrupt ruling classes of places like China, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia and Ukraine.
Like our biblical ancestors, America has been fatally weakened—not by military attacks but by sin. During the reign of the Israelite King Jeroboam ii, Israel expanded its borders and took control of lucrative trade routes connecting Assyria and Egypt. Yet while Jeroboam warred, a new class of elites grew rich trading in olive oil, wine and war horses; they used their wealth to exploit their own people (Amos 6:1-7). God condemned these elites who “lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall … are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.” These “put far away the evil day,” acting as though their lavish lifestyle would last forever and ignoring threats to the nation. So God promises that they will be taken captive first when America inevitably falls.
Today, this same attitude infects America—especially the political class that is selling America’s industrial might and resource wealth for profit. Blinded by greed, they ignore threats to the nation. President Trump has worked to check this corruption and to fight for America’s interests. But his campaign to make America great again will be short-lived if Americans fail to repent of the sins that have brought us to this point.
As my father, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, has explained, President Trump is an end-time King Jeroboam ii. Trump is being used by God to temporarily save the nation from destruction (2 Kings 14:27)—at the same time that God warns, “I will not again pass by them any more” (Amos 7:8). This is America’s last chance to repent. That is why God is ensuring so much governmental corruption is exposed: He is trying to awaken people to the evil around us—and to the pitiable fragility of our sinful society and civilization—to prod us to repentance.
The deeper one looks into the problems plaguing America today, the uglier and more twisted the picture grows. Keep watching the impeachment inquiry into Biden. It may not result in him being removed from office yet, but it will expose many things that God wants exposed and pave the way for some big changes!
