Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, Ukraine Oil & Gas exploration company Burisma, and 2020 U.S. election shenanigans

Recommended Posts

Oil & Gas issues may play a role in the upcoming U.S. presidential elections, although not in the way you may initially assume.

Whistleblower Complaint Now Looks Like Democrat Effort to Protect Joe Biden from Investigation

The mysterious “whistleblower” case now looks like a coordinated Democrat effort to block any investigation of presidential candidate Joe Biden for corrupt pressure on Ukraine to drop the investigation of Burisma, an energy company operating in the country, on which his son Hunter Biden was a board member.

In March 2016, then Vice-President Joe Biden warned Ukraine that $1 billion in loan guarantees would be withheld by the U.S. unless they replaced Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general who was investigating Hunter Biden.  Ukraine did remove Shokin, and the prosecution was dropped.  It looks like a clear case of a quid-pro-quo.

However, as things are starting to shake out, the current obfuscation to protect Joe Biden is President Trump asking Ukraine’s new president Volodymyr Zelensky to take another look at the issues surrounding the former government’s decision to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor.  This is presumably the call concerning to the whistleblower.  To wit, democrats see this as Trump asking Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election.  ...

Video of Joe Biden admitting that he paid the Ukrainian President with $1 billion dollars to fire lead prosecutor investigating his son is apparently being scrubbed from YouTube and other social media.  Anyone interested may wish to watch before it gets memory holed.  Video already prompted at the 52 minute mark.  Yes, this is about Oil & Gas.

Foreign Affairs Issue Launch With Joe Biden

Aaaaaand this Biden corruption video has somehow been turned into an attempt to impeach Trump, while totally ignoring Biden.

Watching this impeachment effort to get rid of Trump should be quite the circus.

It is important to notice that there are no "good Ukrainian guys" in this story, it is not like Al Capone vs FBI.

In Ukraine every level of government local & central works similar to organized crime, police, judiciary, are also part of it.

It is called krysha ("roof" from Russian, protection), anybody in Ukraine needs krysha to just conduct business.

It is like permit to conduct business activities. Difficult to explain for me, maybe sb else could do it better.

Until 2014 coup Burisma had a good krysha.

After the coup new people appeared in government so Burisma needed to organize new krysha.

Joe Biden was part of this new krysha. Hunter Biden was hired because he was son of VP Joe Biden.

But of course Burisma gained a lot of other krysha, just to mention that prosecutions against Burisma

in Ukrainian system could not be halted/slowed down without acceptance from highest level of Ukrainian government.

And Ukrainians could not be blamed for having such system of governance, krysha system.

It is endemic for decades.

It is like we do not laugh at or despise British people because they drive on the left, not on the right,

so should also not despise Ukrainians, they do not know anything else.

https://www.scribd.com/document/427618359/Shokin-Statement

Several pages of the Scribd document converted to text. It's not a perfect conversion, but at least you can copy/paste the text and correct any typos as needed.

 

The circumstances of my dismissal were that I tendered my resignation to the Rada at the request of President Poroshenko. Poroshenko asked me to resign due to pressure from the US Presidential administration, in particular from Joe Biden. who was the US Vice-president. Biden Was threatening to withhold USD$ I billion in subsidies to Ukraine until I was removed from office, After I yielded to the Plesident's request and submitted my voluntary resignation, Poroshenko commented about it in the media, He said that I had carried out a colossal amount of work as General Prosecutor. which is something none of my predecessors had been able to do, especially with regards to my work on reforming the different bodies of the prosecutor•s office, on creating the Specialised Anticorruption Prosecutofls Office, which enabled the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to conduct legal work, and on creating self-governing prosecution authorities.

The official reason put forward for my dismissal was that I had allegedly failed to secure the public's trust. Poroshenko and other state omcials. including representatives of the US presidential administration. had never previously had any complaints about my work, however. There were no grievances against me Or any allegations that had I committed any corruption-related (Or, indeed any other) criminal offenses, Biden never stated anything of the kind either. Furthermore, all sanctions in respect of Yanukovich and his suppotters remained in force and were not lifted whilst I occupied the post.*

Moreover, these sanctions were extended. The truth is that I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings ("Burisma"), a natural gas firm active in Ukraine. and Joe Biden's Son, Hunter Biden, was a member of the Board Of Directors. assume Burisma, which was connected With gas extraction. had the support Of the US Vice-President Joe Biden because his son was on the Board of Directors.

On several occasions President Poroshenko asked me to have a look at the criminal case against Burisma and consider the possibility of Winding down the investigative actions in respect of this company, but I refused to close this investigation. Therefore. I Was forced to leave Office. under direct and intense pressure from Joe Biden and the US admin istration. In my conversations with Poroshenko at the time. he was emphatic that I should cease my investigations regarding Burisma. When I did not, he said that the US (via Biden) were refusing to release the USDS I billion promised to Ukraine. He said that he had no choice, therefore. but to ask me to resign.

10.

When Poroshenko asked me to resign. the way that he put it to me was that he was making it for the good Of our country. and that I should agree. also as an act Of patriotism. I agreed to tender my resignation on this basis.

After my dismissal Joe Biden made a public statement I. saying — even bragging — that he had me fired. This is when it became clear that the real reason for my dismissal was my actions regarding in Burisma and Biden's personal interest in that company. which was demonstrated by the following:

a) it was Biden's order and wish that I be removed from office. not Poroshenko's decision:

b) the reason was because it was precisely the state officials from the US administration Of President Obama — and Joe Biden in particular - who were telling the heads Of the Ukraine law-enforcement system how to investigate and whom to investigate. including members Ofthe Yanukovych regime team. I was not complying with their will (in respect Of Zlochevsky, in particular. who was a minister under Yanukovich) so I had to be removed from office;

c) it was not Poroshenko being patriotic. it was Poroshenko submitting to the demands of state officials from the US administration Of President Obama for reasons of political economy and the personal interests of the US Vice President Biden, amongst Others.

12. When I found out about the actual reason for my dismissal from Biden•s statement. I went to the Courts and asked for recognition that I had been forced to submit my 'voluntary' resignation (and therefore that my dismissal be declared unlawful). I was refused to have my case examined on its merits due to the fact that I had supposedly missed the deadlines for applying to the courts. When I had exhausted all domestic legal remedies, I petitioned the ECtHR. On the basis that my fundamental rights had been breached and that my dismissal was politically motivated and therefore unlawful.

 

===============================

Joe Biden be like ...

That’s fairly damning of both Biden and the Obama administration. I wonder if the Democrats have realized the can of worms they have opened?

Doesn't seem so.

Blatant popcorn time.

So.... a fact.

Outrageous stuff.

No heads rolled over the illegal spying of a presidential candiate so nothing will happen from this I expect.

Politics in the US and UK have become a complete disgrace, it's all so corrupt and right in your face.

It is endemic to every government. Since government laws are made to ensure government control rather than consistency of truth, it is natural that the laws give discretion power to government which it regularly misuses. So, unless you can call the government itself as traitor and call for mass action, it is impossible to uphold truth at every level.

Many of the times, especially in today's time, the natural resources dependence decides politics. This means that s country can compel another country to act in certain manner by leveraging it's natural resource supply. In case of Ukraine, the lack of resources and complete dependence on other countries for resources makes it vulnerable to intervention from foreign countries. So, Ukraine is not in a position to do much at all.
