Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled a plan Monday for how his administration would prioritize ethics should he be elected president in 2020, pledging to “ensure that no future president can ever again abuse the office for personal gain.”
Only in the incurably corrupt Washington, DC, could this ever pass as an actual news story instead of the tragic farce it actually is. Democratic 2020 candidate Joe Biden, who is taking a massive nosedive in recent polls, pledges to ‘restore ethics’ to Washington after using his White House influence to get his son Hunter on the board of not one but two foreign corporations. Joe Biden has long said that these jobs, one in Ukraine and the other in China, do not ‘represent any conflict of interest’ laws. If that is true, if Hunter got these jobs based on his own merit and not because his father used his political influence, then he should absolutely not step down. So why is he?
Hunter Biden is stepping down because Joe Biden used his influence as the then-vice president of the United States to get him these jobs that pay Hunter millions per year, they are guilty as charged, and know an investigation is coming. What’s the difference between Joe Biden and the comic figure Alfred E. Neuman from the old Mad Magazine? No really, I’m asking what the difference is. They have the same smile, they are equally trustworthy, and they both are running for president. Is there a difference?
Joe Biden takes on Trump administration with plan to ‘restore’ government ethics
FROM CNN: In a rebuke of the Trump administration, Biden pledges to “restore” ethics in government, “rein in executive branch financial conflicts of interest,” and “return integrity” to decision making in his administration.
The ethics plan comes a day after the former vice president’s son, Hunter Biden, announced that he will resign at the end of the month from his board role in the management company of a private equity fund backed by Chinese state-owned entities. Hunter Biden has come under scrutiny from President Donald Trump and Republicans for his position on the board, as well as his previous ties to a Ukrainian energy company, which Trump wanted Ukraine’s government to investigate — a move that largely prompted a House impeachment inquiry into the President’s conduct.
On Sunday, Hunter Biden also pledged to not work for any foreign-owned companies or serve on their boards should his father be elected President, and his father told reporters that his family and associates would not work for foreign companies if he is elected president, saying he would have “build on the squeaky clean, transparent environment” in the White House reminiscent of former President Barack Obama’s administration.
According to the plan, if elected, the former vice president would issue an executive order prohibiting members of his administration or White House staff from getting involved in investigations by the Justice Department, saying that those who do would be fired. He would also work to pass laws that say the department can investigate “any allegation of improper partisan influence on DOJ investigations and prosecutions.”
If elected, Biden would also work to create a “Commission on Federal Ethics,” which the plan says would “oversee and enforce federal anti-corruption and ethics laws.” The panel would also have investigative authority and the power to enforce subpoenas and refer some matters to the DOJ for criminal investigation. Additionally, Biden would introduce a constitutional amendment “to entirely eliminate private dollars from our federal elections.” The amendment, according to the plan, would overturn the Supreme Court’s blockbuster Citizens United ruling nearly a decade ago and require federal candidates “to solely fund their campaigns with public dollars.” READ MORE

UKRAINE SCANDAL: Why did Burisma Hire Hunter Biden?
Media says NO PROOF of Joe Biden wrongdoing? China, Ukraine, Burisma, Missing Money Show Otherwise
PBS News Judy Woodruff recently said there’s no proof of Joe Biden wrongdoing. But everything in Ukraine points in a different direction. First, WHY was his son appointed to the board of Ukraine’s oil and gas company, Burisma, when he had little to offer the industry? WHY did Biden push so hard to fire the Ukrainian official investigating Hunter Biden? WHY were huge sums of money coming in from random Swiss bank accounts? WHERE did the missing money — 1.8 billion dollars — disappear to, that Biden pledged would be used for Ukraine? WHY are there even more hints of wrongdoing in China, as well? And most importantly, WHY does the media have such a lack of curiosity in answering these questions? Author Peter Schweizer answers all these questions, and more.
