Hunter Biden has received some positive comments about the fruit of his new art career, which he has plied in multi-million dollar homes in Southern California, but his works are also expected to fetch as much as $500,000 — beyond what a normal fledgling artist would merit.
The scandal-plagued son of President Joe Biden has hooked up with Manhattan art dealer George Berges, who told Artnet that he plans to price Hunter’s works at an upcoming show at between $75,000 for works on paper, to a half-million dollars for large paintings.
Like the younger Biden, Berges — who has served prison time for assault with a deadly weapon — has ties to Chinese movers and shakers, according to a January article in the New York Post that first reported Hunter’s new art pursuits:

Local chapters of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation are training their fire on the national organization, after it was revealed that recently departed co-founder Patrisse Cullors purchased million-dollar properties in white neighborhoods, raising suspicions about the BLMGNF’s spending practices and the “Marxist” Cullors’s hypocrisy.
Some local BLM chapters have formed a coalition that they call BLM 10 Plus, which are uniting under statements that seek greater accountability from the parent nonprofit.
According to a report from the Daily Mail over the weekend, the father of Michael Brown — who was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. in 2014 — has expressed support for BLM 10 Plus’s goal to get to the bottom of Cullors’s purchases of homes in California and Georgia valued collectively at more than $3 million, as well as the management of BLMGNF’s millions that it has … Read More ➡
Following last week’s release of the revealing emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci, which included mutual admiration correspondence he had with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the top two Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight Committee want copies of ALL company employees’ communications — both internal and externally with government employees — as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and censorship.
The online schmoozing between Zuckerberg and Fauci, the director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectiousness Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, included promotion of a special Facebook database about the coronavirus, and an invitation to Fauci to record a video to promote the project. It is widely known that Facebook (and Twitter) have banned any discussion or posts by users that do not conform to the government’s official narrative on the virus, its origins, and how to respond to it.

This op-ed by NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty appears today on Real Clear Markets:
Last week, Exxon Mobil, one of the world’s largest publicly traded international oil and gas companies, lost a critical board fight with Engine No.1, a “woke” small investor group. The win was predictably spun by the mainstream media as a David vs. Goliath story as well as a milestone moment for a new type of altruistic Environmental, Social and Governance investor.
The truth, however, is more cynical than heroic. Among other things, this is a story of how a billionaire like Larry Fink, a true Wolf of Wall Street, uses other people’s money to simultaneously camouflage his checkered past and help promote himself as an elder statesman of the markets, a beneficent oligarch with a penchant for saving the planet.
The popular media narrative is that this latest Exxon shareholder campaign was conducted by a small group … Read More ➡
In an interview for “Axios on HBO” over the weekend, Secretary of State Antony Blinken could not articulate any measures that the Biden administration would take against China if it refuses access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which more than ever is now suspected of unleashing the COVID-19 pandemic on the world.
Asked by interviewer Mike Allen what kind of “teeth” the United States would put into pressuring the communist government if it denied information to investigators — as any person with common sense would expect, considering China has denied and redirected blame about the source of the coronavirus so far, including blaming the U.S. Army — Blinken essentially replied that China would do what’s good for them.
“At the end of the day,” Blinken said, “it’s profoundly in China’s interest to do this as well, because look, it suffered too in the outbreak … Read More ➡
