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:
Berges, 44, regularly features works by Chinese artists and told a
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.
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 ➡
With the explosion of revelations from the release of the emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectiousness Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, it has been discovered that Facebook is censoring users’ posts of those public records, according to Reclaim the Net.
The emails published last week by Buzzfeed and the Washington Post showed Fauci — the COVID-19 “expert” whose profile has been boosted by voluminous appearances on mainstream media news outlets — taking contradictory stances on the issues of masks and quashing evidence that the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. The emails undermined several other narratives that Fauci and the federal government have rammed down the throats of Americans, who have been forced to suffer under lockdowns and economic destruction, attributed to the threat of the coronavirus.… Read More ➡
The New York Postreported late yesterday that new revelations from Hunter Biden‘s laptop, which he abandoned at a Delaware repair shop, showed that his father Joe dined in Washington, DC, with his son’s business associates from Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine while he was vice president in April 2015.
The dinner meeting, scheduled to include the Bidens, Hunter’s business partner Devon Archer, and several foreign business associates, was held under the premise to — as Hunter explained in an email — “ostensibly to discuss food security.” But the meeting included officials shown previously to have direct ties to Hunter Biden and Archer, as the Post explained:
The next day, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father.
If you thought all the new tech developments to make your life “smart” (like “smart homes” and “smart phones”) were really just Big-Brotherism trying to increasingly modify your behavior, Google has a new one for you.
Many are aware of the powerful search engine’s auto-complete feature, in which the user starts typing a desired phrase and Google offers suggested completions of the phrase. The tech giant built its search algorithms to be politically left leaning, research has shown. For example, during the 2016 presidential campaign, auto-complete offered only positive suggestions when beginning a search on “Hillary Clinton,” but no negative ones.
Now Google wants to bring the same feature to the documents you write. In your words. For yourself and your colleagues.
The company announced at its I/O Developer conference this week that users of its Google Docs program — in which collaborators can compose, edit, and … Read More ➡
A report from the New York Times on Monday provides greater detail of the lengths that Apple has gone to to kowtow to China, in order to extract its massive profits from the abusive Communist nation.
The newspaper said it reviewed internal documents, recent filings in a court case, interviewed 17 current and former Apple employees, and spoke to four security experts, all which revealed the extent CEO Tim Cook moved the company toward greater capitulation to Chinese government demands for access to its citizens’ private data. It found that not only is Apple giving access to encryption keys for customers’ data on the iCloud to government-owned firm; It is ceding control of the massive server farms that host its cloud computing for the Chinese firm to manage.
From the Times report:
Two decades ago, as Apple’s operations chief, Mr. Cook spearheaded the company’s entrance into
