China Joe

 Now that Joe is no longer running some of his shenanigans or how he got rich schemes are coming out. Here is just one that has implications for decision making in the new administration. According to Politico:

At the University of Pennsylvania, there is a thing called the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.” The man who has been running the Penn Biden Center since it was founded in 2018 is a guy named Tony Blinken, Biden’s nominee to be the new US Secretary of State.


The Penn Biden Center under Blinken’s leadership took in more than $20 million in anonymous donations from Chinese nationals. And the Penn Biden Center according to an article in Politico is now refusing to disclose the identities of those Chinese.


The  Penn Biden Center is almost entirely bought and paid for by anonymous Chinese donors. There are a few other people who worked there who are also moving over to the White House.  


The list includes White House counselor Steve Ricchetti, Brian McKeon who headed to the State Department, the new Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl, the new deputy UN ambassador Jeff Prescott, and three other people that Biden has appointed to the National Security Council.


All of these people are required, obviously, to fill out financial disclosures during the nominating process. But they’re all just going to write that they were paid salaries by this Penn Biden Center. And the Penn Biden Center is refusing to disclose its list of anonymous donors from Communist China.
