From Interfax – Ukraine:
“Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials.
Derkach publicized documents which, as he said, “describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr.” at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine’s press center in Kyiv on Wednesday.
“This was the transfer of Burisma Group’s funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services,” Derkach said.”
I’m not a lawyer, but I think you must register in the US before you do any lobbying for an entity in a foreign Country.October 7, 2020 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #1907958jackkParticipant

Joe Bidden a criminal? Wow, if anyone’s a criminal it’s Donald Trump. He’s responsible for over 200,000 deaths, promoting race wars, failure to pay taxes. Anyone that votes for him is a fool. In addition to that, his Supreme Court nominee is against IVF and all types of abortions including when the mom’s lift is in danger.October 8, 2020 11:37 am at 11:37 am #1908112
RE -“Trump is the criminal who held back information about the coronavirus killing over 210,000 people and infected over 7,000,000 people.”
If the DemonCrats were in Charge there would be MILLIONS of DEATHS!
Unfortunately you have been Drinking the LIBERAL Kool-Aid for Way TOO Long!
Let’s look at Scientific FACTS!
From Pew Research Center:
“Coronavirus death toll is heavily concentrated in Democratic congressional districts
BY BRADLEY JONES
The coronavirus outbreak has taken the lives of nearly 100,000 Americans. Yet since the start of the outbreak, the death toll has been concentrated in a just a few places – mostly large metropolitan areas, especially the New York City area.
The places hit hardest by the coronavirus outbreak – which have relatively large shares of ethnic and racial minorities and residents living in densely populated urban and suburban areas – are almost all represented by congressional Democrats.
A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts.”October 8, 2020 11:38 am at 11:38 am #1908111
You are aware that it makes no difference how extreme AMC “pro life” position is?
The conservative legal theory against Roe vs Wade is simply that it is not something that can constitutionally be decided by the Federal Judiciary.
It can either be decided by the voters or by State courts.
So even if AMC would vote to overturn Roe vs Wade all that would happen is the individual States would be left to decide the laws.
Regarding the Covid test,
I have repeatedly asked whether Trump is also responsible for the 800,000 Deaths in other countries as well and no one seems to want to answer.
Regarding Race wars.
It’s cute the first Republican President of the modern era to make a serious effort to reach out to minority communities is accused of promoting race wars?
Regarding failure to pay taxes.
How about you volunteer to work, build a business then pay 100 million dollars to the US Government that you do not owe them.
Better yet make it 200 million.October 8, 2020 11:52 am at 11:52 am #1908124

I should hope that Trump has learned to question Fauci’s views.
Fauci first said that the virus is not that bad.
Then he said to no band travel from China.
The he co-wrote a study in the New England Journal of Medicine saying that even though the virus is statistically more deadly then the flu, it is probably only because we do not test enough however proper testing may show the mortality rate is the same as a severe flu season ( If you do not believe me look it up the New England Journal of Medicine is available).
The he said do not wear masks before he said to wear them.
Since he seemingly disagrees with himself every month or so as “new data” becomes available, I guess I will just disagree with him now, thank you very much.October 8, 2020 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1908157

Let’s see here….
Andriy Derkach is a leader of a pro-Putin political party in the Ukraine Parliament.
In December 2019, Derkach met with Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani in an attempt by Giuliani to dig up illicit slanders against the Bidens. Derkach has also been funneling information of questionable veracity to Sens. Ron Johnson and Charles Grassley.
In August 2020, Trump’s own Director of the United States National Counterintelligence and Security Center, William Evanina, identified Derkach as a leader of Putin’s attempts to influence the US election this year.
In September 2020, Trump’s own Treasury Department slapped sanctions on Derkach for that very reason, saying that “has been an active Russian agent for over a decade”.
I thank the OP for bringing to our attention the attempts by someone close to Trump to solicit illegal foreign influence into the US electoral process. Trump himself probably knew. Giuliani is clearly the criminal.October 8, 2020 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1908174
“Ever hear of Modern Medicine? There’s NO Such thing as the Mom’s life is in Danger!”
That is because we have legal abortions. Epidemiologic research has estimated that about one in every thousand pregnancies results in an ectopic pregnancy, which is life threatening. Fortunately most emergency departments, including the one in the (Jewish) health system I work for, perform emergency abortions in such instances, usually with methotrexate, a drug also used to treat cancer and autoimmune disese. Other life threatening situations are more rare but they do occur; my wife has had one case in her entire medical career where she had to refer a pregnant woman for such an abortion. My health system performs abortions under those circumstances, too.October 8, 2020 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #1908168
Ben Levi, when the goyim worshipped a gold a’z protecting it from being stolen, so they were told, if they can’t protect themselves how can they protect you? Trump could not protect himself from being infected how can he protect you?October 8, 2020 1:23 pm at 1:23 pm #1908181
“he seemingly disagrees with himself every month or so as “new data” becomes available”
That is called being a good scientist — letting the data drive your conclusions. I have personally been doing that in a career that has lasted over a quarter of a century. You don’t double down once your initial hypothesis has been debunked. Many commenters here need to learn that. (For example, hydroxychloroquine has been proven to be a bust.)October 8, 2020 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #1908178
“How about you volunteer to work, build a business then pay 100 million dollars to the US Government that you do not owe them.
Better yet make it 200 million.”
If you have a profitable business you will owe taxes. Unless you commit fraud. Trump clearly has committed bank fraud becasue he lied to Deutsche Bank regarding the value of properties — he was telling property tax authorities one thing but the lenders another. That kind of “two sets of books” is the kind of stuff mafia bosses do. And many of Trump’s income tax deductions are highly dubious personal expenses that honest people do not try to deduct. Deutsche Bank is mainly famous today for money laundering so it is no surprise they were still willing to work with Trump.October 8, 2020 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1908269
Oh Charlie, -“That is because we have legal abortions.
My health system performs abortions under those circumstances, too.”
I’m beginning to wonder if you know any Medicine.
I know that you’re a Prof. in YU, but maybe you got the job because of Connections.
A simple Google search explains Ectopic Pregnancy.
“A pregnancy in which the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus.
The fertilized egg can’t survive outside the uterus.”

I understand that you some how have this feeling that Trump can “protect you” from being infected.
I do not and never did.
I take normal sane measures of hishtadlus and trust in Hashem.
Years back I was a young father with no pre-existing conditions and I came down with one of the most rare illnesses there are.
Doctors actually gave up on me to a degree.
I recovered B”h.
And the Doctors admitted that the way I recovered happens at times even though it’s still taught as medically impossible.
I blamed no one then for me getting sick and Thanked Hashem for giving me a second chance.
I feel bad that you somehow think “trump” can stop you from being infected.October 8, 2020 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #1908318

Ben Levi, you said you don’t take advice from Dr. Fauci then you must be advised by Trump as a hishtadlus in order to protect yourself. Who do you listen to as an advisor?October 8, 2020 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #1908379
health, Trump is still responsible for 135,000 deaths.October 8, 2020 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #1908382
Ben Levi, to have proper hishtadlus we need information available to the president and withholding that wlll make one sick, needing great defenders (prakletim gedolim) to be cured which one might not be worthy of after illness. For this reason, Hashem creates the cure before tbe illness and we are suppose to pray not to get sick but prayer alone is not enough when the illness is rampant (shechiach hezeika).October 8, 2020 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1908468
When exactly did I say I do not advice from Fauci?
And if I do not take advice from Fauci, Why does that mean I take advice from Trump?
I actually have Doctors, In my case becuase of ongoing monitoring that I am required to hav I actually have several Doctors.
None of whom agree with lockdowns.October 8, 2020 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1908486
Ben Levi, on reply #1908143 but mask wearing, social distancing and frequent sanitizing are required.October 9, 2020 7:14 am at 7:14 am #1908505
What I said was I hop that Trump has learnt to question Fauci’s views
And I may disagree with them now since he will disagree with them in a month.
That is not the same as refusing to take advice.
Advice means you question, you hear, and you consider that persons view/opinion on any given subject.
Taking it means you agree with it.
When Trump was considering a travel Ban on China he sought out advice from many people.
Fauci gave the advice not to do it. He thought it was to early.
Trump listened to his advice but decided to reject it and placed a Ban either way.
In hindsight Fauci has stated Trump saved thousands of lives.October 12, 2020 10:40 am at 10:40 am #1908875

“You wrote Delivery. Why do Abortion?”
In practice a healthy fetus would not be aborted at 34 weeks or later which is when preeclampsia often develops. But it can develop as early as 20 weeks when the fetus cannot survive.October 12, 2020 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1909007
“Trump listened to his advice but decided to reject it and placed a Ban either way.

Trump did not ban travel from China in January. He banned travel by Chinese nationals. That is xenophobic and racist. Tens of thousands of people traveled from China to the US after the racist travel ban.October 12, 2020 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1909005

HCQ proved to be a bust. Totally ineffective. Trump recommended it anyway and it helped, well, probably nobody.October 12, 2020 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1909104
He banned all travel from China,
What he allowed was repatriation and US Citizens.
Banning US Citizens or Permanent Residents from returning home would have been near impossible.
But here we have an action which virtually everyone agrees saved thousands of lives and yet you call it xenophobic.October 12, 2020 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1909105October 12, 2020 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1909107
To say HCQ proved a complete bust is a complete untruth.
Most of the studies that did not show any effects were in cases where proponents of HCQ had already stated it was no longer effective.
As as scientist yourself I would think you have the intellectual honesty to admit that at best you can say results are inconclusive and most objective scientists state there is a need for further study ( I point you to an article in Nature Magazine on July 8 co-authored by Dr. Erwei Sun, Dr. Yufing Shi, Dr. Ernesto Carofoli, Dr Gerry Melino, Arnold Rabson, Patrizia Agostonis, Ying Wang, Xing Li)October 12, 2020 8:37 pm at 8:37 pm #1909151
Oh Charlie, -“According the the anti-abortion Christians whom many commenters here mistakenly follow, it is.”
You seem to know Catholic Theology or you’re Just Lying?
I think it’s the LATTER!
From the Catholic Register on Ectopic Pregnancy:
“So in summary, Father Tad explains that when the fetus/embryo is still living, but when expectant management of the tubal pregnancy is no longer possible without serious and imminent danger of harm or death, then:
Salpingectomy (cutting the tube on both sides around the embryo) can be licit with a proportionate reason since it targets the damaged tube for removal with the foreseen death of the fetus/embryo.
Salpingostomy (the scooping out of the embryo) would not be licit, since it constitutes a direct targeting for removal and destruction of the embryo/fetus by the nature of the medical procedure:
So I’m correct – we Jews should oppose the Legality of Abortion.
The way it is NOW – you can Kill Fetuses for No-Good Reasons.
The Lies from Some Jews that it will come to Not Keeping the Torah, is Just one BIG Manipulation to Keep Killing

There are many Docs that use it!

For those that are Senile – I posted this on that topic that used that protocol & and found that it worked:

And by the way, my brother in Monsey was very ill, got it and healed from Dr Zelenko protocol. And my son just told me of a frum pharmacist who let out the word that anyone who has symptoms should come to him to get the protocol fir free (probably because he cannot show it) and he saved 3 of my family members.
Dr Zelenko and a professor were just interviewed on Arutz Sheva (Oct 12) and the interview is a bombshell. Money and politics are killing people!October 13, 2020 3:01 am at 3:01 am #1909246
Oh Charlie, -“In practice a healthy fetus would not be aborted at 34 weeks or later which is when preeclampsia often develops. But it can develop as early as 20 weeks when the fetus cannot survive.”
Like I previously wrote – you have No Clue about the Practice of Medicine!
It’s very Not common to have severe symptoms before 34 weeks. (Usually much Later.)
And there is No reason to do an Abortion unless Killing is your Obsession!
You do a C – section.
From the Merck Manual:
Usually hospitalization and sometimes antihypertensive treatment
Delivery, depending on factors such as gestational age and severity of preeclampsia
Magnesium sulfate to prevent or treat new seizures or to prevent seizures from recurring
Definitive treatment for preeclampsia is delivery. However, risk of early delivery is balanced against gestational age, severity of preeclampsia, and response to other treatments.
Usually, immediate delivery after maternal stabilization (eg, controlling seizures, beginning to control blood pressure [BP]) is indicated for the following:
Pregnancy of ≥ 37 weeks
Preeclampsia with severe features if pregnancy is ≥ 34 weeks
Deteriorating renal, pulmonary, cardiac, or hepatic function (eg, HELLP syndrome)
Nonreassuring results of fetal monitoring or testing
Other treatments aim to optimize maternal health, which usually optimizes fetal health. If delivery can be safely delayed in pregnancies of < 34 weeks, corticosteroids are given for 48 hours to accelerate fetal lung maturity.”October 13, 2020 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #1909541
I am just curious about something,
You claim to be an objective scientist.
You claim to put saving lives ahead of politics
Dr. Harvey Risch has a M.D from UC San Diego & a Ph.D. from U of Chicago.
He is a Professor of epidemiology at Yale University.
He is a n unquestioned expert in his field and anyone who holds that post at Yale is considered to be at the top of their field.
He claims that Hydroxy works.
He disputes Fauci.
He claims that Fauci & the disinformation campaign against Hydroxy has killed thousands.
Dr. Risch claims that the science that the Zelenko protocol helps high risk patients if given early is “one sided and the strongest he has ever seen” and government scientists & media are deliberately pushing studies that study hospitalized patients ot low risk which no one is claiming Hydroxy helps.
Is Dr. Risch also wrong and dangerous?October 13, 2020 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #1909592
Ben Levi -“He claims that Fauci & the disinformation campaign against Hydroxy has killed thousands.”
Let’s separate Fauci from the Rest.
Even though I believe in HCQ + Zinc, I understand Fauci’s position. He’s from the old time doc’s that need definitive Proof.
The Rest are Just TDS! Because he promoted it Months ago.

Back to my OP on this Topic:
The NY Post has revealed that Joe Biden was involved in Criminal Activity in the Ukraine!
From the NY Post:
“Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad”
“Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained from the NY Post.”October 14, 2020 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1909974
Another Trump conspiracy theory has been found to be false. Barr’s “unmasking” probe found nothing. That is because it was entirely appropriate to unmask the identity of someone claiming to be representing Trump who was negotiating with a hostile foreign power. That someone turned out to be an unregistered foreign agent whom Trump names as his National Security Advisor anyway, and it took a lie to the Vice President to get him fired.
The criminals are in the Trump Organization.
