President Joe Biden has been in the hot seat of controversy surrounding his wayward son, Hunter’s global exploits. Billing himself as a “consultant,” the First Son has spent years cultivating relationships with contacts both in foreign governments and within powerful multinational corporations.
The question has always been whether Hunter was freelancing or if he was representing larger interests—notably those of his family, specifically, his powerful father, Joe. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has been leading the investigation into these matters and is now demanding that the president retract his “misleading and dishonest denial” that the Biden family received $1 million from a Chinese conglomerate.
Is the Biden Family Actually an International Crime Syndicate?
In fact, the Biden family did receive those funds via one of Hunter Biden’s business partners. The money is believed to have been disbursed not only to Hunter’s account, but to the bank accounts of Hunter’s uncle, James Biden, as well as Hunter’s sister-in-law (and onetime girlfriend), Hallie Biden.
The most important query, of course, is whether President Biden had received the money himself—either directly or indirectly. And for that, further investigation is required (which is ongoing).
The reason that Comer and the House Oversight Committee know about these transfer payments from a Chinese conglomerate to the Biden family’s personal accounts is because the Biden family attorneys confirmed this to the Oversight Committee in a recent round of disclosures. More ominously, according to reports on the matter, “a bank account identified as an unknown ‘Biden’ also received $70,000 from [the business associate of Hunter Biden].”
Who was this “unknown Biden”? Why is their identity masked? Could it be that the entire Biden family are acting as go-betweens shuttling money-for-access from China to Joe Biden?
It is quite possible that Hunter Biden is merely a cutout for a larger operation in which his father, a man who has spent his career at the highest levels of government, is receiving large portions of the proceeds of whatever business that Hunter is ginning up in Joe Biden’s name.
Like most criminal operations, the perpetrators often prefer the business staying “within the family”. Yet, entrusting such sensitive operations to an unstable actor, like Hunter, was probably not the best move.
Remember: the only reason anyone is even looking into these accusations swirling around the Biden family is that Hunter left a personal laptop loaded up with an assortment of inappropriate and illicit materials that prompted the technician working on the computer to call the authorities.
That laptop from Hell has since been subpoenaed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as part of a larger money laundering investigation.
China Thinks Biden is “Easier to Control”
I remind you also that at the start of the Biden Administration, after his controversial victory in the hotly contested 2020 Presidential Election, Di Dongsheng, a professor of international relations at Renmin University (and someone with connections to the highest levels of China’s government) boasted that Joe Biden would be “easier to control” than Donald Trump ever was as president.
This statement was instantly downplayed by Western media and it was outright censored by China’s truth averse media.
Wonder why? Could it be because the Biden family accepted at least $1 million from a Chinese state enterprise over the last decade?
President Biden is in such a legal quandary that not even brer rabbit—who is far less cognitively impaired than the forty-sixth president—could extricate himself from. He probably doesn’t realize it yet.
The Walls Really Are (Slowly) Closing In…
The Republicans have control over the House of Representatives, which means that they will continue to investigate this issue for as long as they hold power there. The Biden family’s various misdeeds will be uncovered one way or another. Maybe it all goes on Hunter. Maybe we get lucky and it clips the president (who is almost certainly involved). This investigation will take time and it will be annoying to those on the outside, but something will pan out about Hunter’s international business ties.
The walls are actually closing in around Joe Biden. How long it takes and how much the walls close in will be up to several factors which may not work on the relatively short (for investigation standards) timeframe that the House GOP is working with as the 2024 Presidential Election rapidly approaches.
Still, Joe Biden should be deeply concerned about what is coming to his family—and likely his presidency. He’d better hope that he wins reelection so that, just as the forty-fifth president plans to do should he win in 2024, Biden can pardon himself and his family for their misdeeds.

Brandon, are you really that obtuse?

The biden family (Big Guy & hunter & james & beau biden’s spouse) was in cahoots with xi jinping of china duting the time joe was out of office to plot the corruption-funded comeback of democrat party.
Thus, today, the highest office in america is tainted by sheer fraud and dishonesty and shady deals with a foreign leader.
It’s time for a new kenneth star to appear on the scene to investigate (and impeach and send to jail) joe biden.

Is 19fortyfive just another deliberate misinformation site now?
March 23, 2023 at 4:15 am
I think Trump supporters are upset that Trump is in trouble so they are trying to project the troubles onto Biden. There is no proof that there is even a there there with Hunter and yet they want this to be connected to Joe.
I’m no fan of Joe. He is a politician who can’t seem to keep his foot out of his mouth. He seems to have a racist history, but haven’t seen anything racist out of him for years. So maybe he is reformed. But he really doesn’t have too many redeeming qualities. So I wouldn’t mind a Republican to take his place. The problem is that the Republican Party has really given in to the Racist/bigoted side of the party. There aren’t many Republicans that I could actually vote for any more. Trump did a good job of running them all off or bringing out their true colors. I basically don’t think I can vote for anyone until they apologize for ruining our country with Trump.

The poster man of American wokeism which includes the clarion call for all cultures to be subjugated or come under american-originated wokeness.
Wokeism doesn’t accept legitimacy of other alternatives. Only way to the glorious future is total subjugation of everyone under ersatz american wokeness.
In a nutshell, it’s my way or the highway. But this is also the mantra used by street crime syndicate organizations.
Thus, the walls are closing in on joe biden, the man who when not in public office took hush money from xi jinping.
Xi is the clown on the other extreme end of wokeism, having the dream of owning & exercising total mercantile supremacy over all humanity.
Joe biden. Your days are numbered.

Is 19fortyfive turning into a QAnon site or something? This is the sort of crazy conspiracy stuff you’d normally see there.
March 23, 2023 at 10:11 am
I don’t understand how such a piece of propaganda gets published by anyone other than Newsmax.

Dear Editors of 1945,
You run a very good military blog which Brandon Weichert is discrediting with his insane political commentary. Please stop publishing him

Walls Closing In
Did Biden receive money from China?
Specific allegation… specific supporting evidence.
Deal with it.
This is a basic question all Americans should want to know.
Perhaps, the money was received through appropriate channels.
Perhaps, it wasn’t.
Perhaps, no monies were received at all.
Even if you don’t care, personally, the American People have a right to know.
To make an informed choice for President of the United States.
March 23, 2023 at 1:18 pm
I love reading 19fortyfive but these clearly Republican biased articles are getting annoying. I also don’t like Biden…
Can we just return to putting at least semi-intelligent people into office?
March 23, 2023 at 3:32 pm
A very fair minded article here. Good to see after a slew of hard left articles being published here.
Biden should get the same “equal protection” of the laws which he and his ilk wish to selectively apply to political opponents.
March 23, 2023 at 4:54 pm
The fastest way to explain “Woke” to a tRhumper…
Those of us who are woke know the difference between burro and burrow.
Those of you who aren’t woke, don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground.

“Hunter Biden may be merely a cutout for a more extensive operation in which his father, a man who has spent his career at the highest levels of government, is receiving large portions of the proceeds of whatever business that Hunter is ginning up in Joe Biden’s name.
You are hanging all your conclusions on something that you admit and say only MAY BE.
Get some facts, get some proof, if you want to be taken as anything more than a troll.

Without supporting if this story is true or not true, i will say this. If in fact the story is true, then if Joe Biden was involved in any way at all, even if he knew about it, then he should immediately be replaced as President and sent to prison! No country can afford to have a leader that is compromised by it’s number one enemy, if this is true, he cannot nor will not lead with the concerns of USA people at the forefront of decisions he makes! This guy has spent 2 years now constantly blaming Trump for his own failures, he has sold a lot of oil reserves to China, etc, etc! So what next? Maybe sell them a few aircraft carriers and fighter jets? Calling Trump irresponsible for having documents at this home, then gets caught with documents from when he was a Senator and totally not allowed to have such documents by law! It is time that people woke up and realized the monster they have created last Presidential election. Look at the inflation rate now, and totally Biden’s doing, not Donald Trumps! The price of gas at the pumps? Yep, Biden all the way. And i firmly do believe that if Trump was still president, even though i am not one of his fans, but if he was still president, Russia would not be fighting in the Ukraine and China would not be sending spy balloons over the USA, or considering attacking Taiwan either! They say you are only as strong as the leader of your organization is, well sorry, but the USA has never been weaker.

Brandon has a rich right wing conspiracy fantasy going on. Get your tin foil hat, buddy, no one believes your twaddle anymore.
March 24, 2023 at 3:23 pm
I saved this website because you had interesting info on defense. I didn’t realize you’re just another collection of right-wing lying POS.
March 24, 2023 at 5:56 pm
Nothing will happen because most of congress is and has been doing this for 30+ years. The tit for tat war would ensue and our govt would implode… which isn’t a bad thing but it is for their kleptocracy.
March 24, 2023 at 8:55 pm
Hey Brandon, do you sweat much under all of that tin foil?
19FortyFive has taken a wrong turn by publishing stuff like this. What gives? As a defense/policy/military blog, it’s been first rate. But if it’s going to start giving space to yipping Newsmax-style traffickers like this guy, I’m gone.
