At the RNC Tuesday night, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi masterfully laid out the case against the Bidens.

It was almost as if she was presenting opening arguments in a case against the former VP and current Democrat nominee for President.  In a scathing “indictment” she explained how over the course of his 47 years in public office, Joe Biden did nothing but use his influence to help to advance his family’s interests.

After a brief introduction, she started right in on Obama’s former right-hand man:

“But for Joe Biden, it’s been the land of opportunism, not opportunity.”


She continues:

“As a career prosecutor and former attorney general of Florida, I fought corruption, and I know what it looks like, whether it’s done by people wearing pinstripe suits or orange jumpsuits. At the Democrats’ convention, we were told to look at Joe Biden as the model of integrity, but when you look at his 47-year career in politics, the people who benefited are his family members, not the American people.”

Again, OUCH.

It has been no secret that Biden’s son Hunter has benefited from his father’s position within the government.  Featured prominently during the President’s impeachment trial (and ignored by Democrats during their partisan witch hunt) Bondi presented the case again, this time to the American public as opposed to a hearing room full of TDS suffering Democrats.

AG Bondi delves into the case:

“Let’s take a closer look. We all know about Joe’s son, Hunter Biden. A corrupt Ukrainian oligarch put Hunter on the board of his gas company, even though he had no experience in Ukraine or in the energy sector. None, yet he was paid millions to do nothing. He only had one qualification that mattered: he was the son of the man in charge of distributing U.S. aid to Ukraine. And recently reported information revealed that a few months after Hunter Biden joined that corrupt company’s board, the Obama-Biden State Department began doing business with them, even when it remained under investigation for corruption. And it gets worse; that very same company was being investigated by a Ukrainian prosecutor. Joe Biden, the vice president of the United States, threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine unless that same prosecutor was fired, and then he was fired. Hunter only resigned from that board just before his dad announced his campaign for president.”

Democrats act like ignoring the case against Hunter Biden makes it untrue.  The fact is that no democrat or media talking head has ever argued that Hunter WAS qualified and IS qualified, in any regard, to consult with a Ukrainian energy company.  Democrats refuse to own the fact that Joe Biden is as corrupt, if not more so than they accuse Trump of being.

Bondi didn’t stop there:

“Now, let’s talk about China. Fact: Joe Biden flew to China on Air Force Two with Hunter along for the ride. They said he was just there as a family member, but we know that’s untrue. In Beijing, Hunter didn’t just go sightseeing. He had meetings with his Chinese bank partners. Hunter even arranged for his dad to meet with one of the partners. 10 days later, those Chinese communist bankers approved millions to go to Hunter’s firm, and those bankers work for the Chinese Communist Party, which oppresses their people, cheated American workers for decades and covered up a deadly virus. To this day, Hunter controls a 10% stake in that firm. And Joe Biden’s done more than look the other way on China. He said, “The Chinese aren’t our competition. Come on, man. They’re not bad folks.” Come on, Joe. Talk to the folks in middle America who lost countless jobs to China, while your son was getting rich with them.”


This is not only dangerous in regards to the corruption of Hunter’s contracts and how they could influence a Biden Presidency, but it further highlights Joe Biden’s incompetence on the international stage.  For decades the Chinese have engaged in economic shenanigans, artificially manipulating the value of their currency to compete in international markets with the US. They have engaged in corporate espionage, military espionage (compare the J31 and F35 if you’re ever curious), and have ignored the intellectual property of companies around the world.  They are ramping up their military power in the South China Sea and continue to oppress their people with work and reeducation camps.  They are our competition and are bad folks.

But I digress.  If Bondi hadn’t provided enough to make your stomach churn, she continues with further information:

“But there’s more. Fact: there have been numerous press reports that have shown other close Biden family members benefited from Joe’s 47 year political career. Joe Biden was point person on Iraq. The president of a construction firm met with Biden’s team in the White House, and then who did they hire to build thousands of houses in Iraq? Joe Biden’s close family member. Who, you guessed it, had no experience in the industry and no experience in Iraq. A company official bragged that it helps to have a family member of the vice president as partner. The family member put it more bluntly by saying there’s a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest.

Now let’s follow the money down South. Again, as reported in the press yet another close family member of Joe’s set his sights on Costa Rica and Jamaica, where millions of dollars flowed from the Obama-Biden Administration in taxpayer backed loans to projects linked to, yes, that same family member. These aren’t isolated incidents. It is a deliberate pattern of conduct, and that’s just what he did as vice-president. Imagine what he’d do as president. How many American families would be allowed to get away with this? Why should there be one standard for the elite political class and another set of rules for the rest of us?”


Joe’s history with Hunter wasn’t his first venture into helping his family profit from his position.  His brother James was given a lucrative construction contract in Iraq during the Obama administration with… you guessed it…. ZERO experience in Iraq or construction.  Even before Biden was VP, his brother joked that as a result of his elder brother’s influence on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and his pending run for the Presidency, there were “747s lined up with cash ready to invest” with their fledgling hedge fund company.

Bondi finished with a contrast between Trump and Biden with some convincing arguments for reelecting the President.

“When millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump, they knew he’d be different, and he is. He’s a tough, no nonsense outsider who can’t be bought or intimidated. He won’t even take a paycheck from the American people. He donates his paycheck to charities across this country. Democrats have been lecturing America about integrity for four years while their nominee has been writing the textbook on abuse of power for 40 years. If they want to make this election a choice between who’s saving America and who’s swindling America, bring it on. Joe says he’ll build back better. Yeah, build the Bidens back better. Our president is in this to build a safer, better and stronger America, and he will finish what he started to keep this a real land of opportunity for everyone. If you want to check your voting status, secure your ballot or register to vote, text “VOTE” to 88022. Remember, the best is yet to come.”


For Biden, the best might not be to come.  The best may have been while he was lining the pockets of his family members for the last several decades.
