WASHINGTON, DC- This is yet another bombshell that will be ignored by state-run media. Newsmax, citing a New York Post report, tells us that according to materials taken from the infamous laptop of crackhead Hunter Biden, his father had a lot more knowledge about his foreign business dealings than previously admitted.
The laptop revealed dozens of meetings between Dementia Joe and his drug-addled son Hunter regarding a number of business dealings, totaling over 30 in number.
The meetings occurred between 2008 and 2016 when Joe Biden was serving as vice president under Barack Obama. The meetings nearly always took place shortly after the younger Biden returned from foreign business trips.

The new revelations have Republicans questioning Joe Biden’s honesty and integrity in answering questions about his knowledge regarding Hunter’s business affairs, which he has repeatedly denied having any information about.
“Hardly a day goes by without another revelation about how intimately involved Joe Biden was with his son Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings,” House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) told the Post.
“The fact that Joe was in meetings with senior foreign leaders on behalf of Hunter and his business associates while vice president further proves that Joe has been lying to the American people.”
The Post reports the meetings between the Bidens involved breakfasts, lunches and other get-togethers after Hunter returned from overseas trips, and calls into question whether the two were exchanging information about those business dealings.
It also calls into question Joe Biden’s repeated denials that he had any knowledge about Hunter’s questionable business dealings.
Revelation of the meetings came about based on a personal calendar on Hunter Biden’s laptop, abandoned at a Wilmington, Delaware computer repair shop.
For example, the Post said the calendar showed that Eric Schwerin, president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, Hunter Biden’s investment company, was shown as a calendar invite recipient on 21 of 30 listed meetings, with a green checkmark appearing to confirm receipt of his invite for meetings with the then-vice president. Schwerin was not only a business partner of Hunter Biden’s, but he also had access to Joe Biden’s personal financial information.
The laptop revealed that meetings between Hunter and Joe Biden took place after the high-profile meetings, sometimes within a matter of minutes.
In one such meeting, Hunter Biden met Daniel Kablan Duncan, Prime Minister of Cote d’Ivioire on April 15, 2016, at 8:15 a.m. in Washington, D.C. the calendar shows. That meeting was quickly followed by a discussion with his father at 9:00 a.m. in the Naval Observatory, the vice president’s residence. It is unknown what the meeting with the prime minister entailed.
A foreign business trip taken by Hunter took him to Moscow between Feb 15-18, 2012, where the Post says he was “wined and dined by billionaire oligarchs,” including one who was apparently wanted for murder. Just four days after returning from Russia, Hunter met with his father, again at the Naval Observatory.
In November 2015, Hunter met with the Romanian ambassador to the U.S., George Maior prior to traveling to that country for meetings.
Five days later, on Nov. 19, 2015, he met his father for breakfast again at the Naval Observatory. A couple of months after that trip, he partnered with former FBI Director Louis Freeh to help Romanian businessman Gabriel Popoviciu avoid jail time, the Post reported.
In yet another meeting with a head of state, the crown prince of Yugoslavia told the New York Post he was hopeful he could put in a good word to his father, Joe Biden, about help in rehabilitating the royal palace in Belgrade.
Emails on the laptop also detail a meeting between Joe Biden and the former president of Colombia, Andres Pastrana Arango, whom Hunter had been pursuing for months for a business deal. That meeting took place on March 2, 2012.
The Post said emails showed Hunter and his partners at Rosemont Seneca had been pursuing the business of OAS, a Brazilian construction company with interests in Colombia for more than a year prior to his father meeting with Arango. That company was later tagged for paying bribes and rigging public contracts.
For example, in a Feb 7, 2011, email to Hunter Biden, his partner Mike Muldoon told him a third member of the company would be pitching OAS on a “20K/month fee…in order to participate” and a 5% success fee, according to the Post.
Just a few months later, in July 2011, Schwerin sent an email to Hunter in which he identified a “list of projects OAS is interested in in Colombia,” while adding that they should “discuss and see how we can be helpful.”
The projects included two wastewater treatment plants estimated at $380 million and $350 million, respectively. In addition, there was a $1.8 billion hydroelectric power plant and a multi-billion dollar upgrade to the Bogota subway system.
“If it works, we’ll all be rich,” Schwerin said to Hunter Biden in an Aug. 2011 email.
A month later, a formal contract was signed with OAS and sent to Hunter in a Sept 8, 2011, email from Fabio Tosta Gadelha Souza, an OAS project finance manager.
Emails revealed OAS paid Rosemont Seneca a retainer of $25,000 per month. Subsequent emails between Hunter and Schwerin talked about a potential bonus from OAS if the Colombia deals worked out, with Schwerin estimating their share of a 1% “success fee” would amount to around $5.6 million.
On Nov 2, 2011, Hunter Biden traveled to Bogota, Colombia where he dined with Pastrana. Emails on the laptop showed the country’s minister for mines and energy, Mauricio Cardenas Santamaria also joined in on the meal. On the same day, Hunter Biden met with Catalina Crane Arango, a counselor to Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos, the calendar revealed.
This would go on for months, as documented in emails, with Hunter Biden attempting to court a business arrangement with Santos.
“Dear Mr. President. I look forward to seeing you when you are in Washington. I was hoping we could meet for lunch or coffee depending on your schedule…I’d like to discuss an opportunity that I think you have already been briefed regarding OAS,”
Hunter wrote to Pastrana in February 2012:
“I am checking on my dad’s schedule.” [emphasis added]
Recall that Joe Biden has repeatedly denied any knowledge of Hunter Biden’s business dealings. Yet here an email shows that Hunter was planning a meeting between himself, the president of Colombia regarding a possible business deal, and his father, the then-vice president.
Just one month later is when Pastrana met with the vice president. There was an invite for a meeting found on the laptop which showed Hunter’s business partner, Schwerin, was also invited to the meeting:
“Meet with Pres. Pastrana and Dad at NavObs,” read the invite.
It couldn’t be clearer that Hunter Biden, his partner at Rosemont Seneca Eric Schwerin, the president of Colombia whom Hunter was courting for a business deal, and his father were all to attend this meeting.
The same date, Hunter scheduled a lunch with Pastrana at Café Milano, where they were joined by Juan Esteban Orduz, president of the Colombian Coffee Federation, Inc.
By all appearances, Pastrana was looking to take advantage of Hunter Biden’s network of contacts, with other calendar entries showing the younger Biden facilitated meetings between Pastrana, Nigerian businessman Kase Lukman Lawal, and Cesar Uzeda, international chairman of OAS.
The Post notes that Joe Biden and Pastrana have a long relationship, with Pastrana sharing a photo of he and Biden in a tweet congratulating Biden on his presidential election win.
The picture shows Pastrana and Biden alongside Jesse Helms (R-NC), Biden’s former Senate colleague, where in the caption Pastrana referred to Biden as a “great friend and connoisseur of our country.”
Pastrana’s son, Santiago told the New York Post, “My father has a friendship with President Biden as they worked together for Plan Colombia when my father was President of Colombia and Biden Senator and chair of the Foreign Relation [sic] Committee.”
Existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop came about as something of an “October surprise” in 2020, just weeks before the presidential election. However it was ignored by the mainstream media and social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter banned mention of the laptop from their platforms.
While the media initially called the laptop “Russian disinformation,” it has since been authenticated by a number of media outlets, including the New York Times, the Washington Examiner recently reported.
During a White House press briefing earlier this month, diversity hire Karine Jean-Pierre refused to comment on the information coming forth from the laptop, which included a voicemail left in which Joe Biden told Hunter he was “in the clear” following a Times story covering Hunter Biden’s dealings with Chinese energy firm CEFC China Holdings.
“Hey, pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance, just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk with you,” Joe Biden can be heard on the voicemail. “I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in The Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway, if you get a chance, give me a call. I love you.”
Despite the voice clearly being that of Joe Biden and despite him referring to the CEFC deal, Jean-Pierre wasn’t biting.
“From this podium, I’m not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop. I’m not going to talk about alleged materials on the laptop. It’s not happening,” the inept Jean-Pierre insisted.
Now that additional emails and calendar information have been released surrounding Joe Biden and his alleged “lack of knowledge” of his son’s business dealings, it will be interesting to see how long before the sharks inside the Democratic Party, seeing their party about to get crucified in the midterms, will throw old Dementia Joe to the wolves.
