Also known as Sinopec, the Biden-tied firm said it’s net income rose 11 percent to $6.5 billion in the first half of this year, according to an exchange filing. Oil
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation appealed to his social media platform to censor stories such as those related to Hunter Biden’s hard drive during the 2020 presidential election, effectively revealing a U.S. law enforcement plot to sway the election in Joe Biden’s favor. The admission came during Zuckerberg’s recent interview with podcaster Joe Rogan, and severely complicates the role of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the 2020 election cycle. The FBI had first seized the laptop of the presidential candidate’s son in 2019 – a year prior to reaching out to
Hunter Biden, the son of the President of the United States, penned a despairing letter to his father just days before Donald J. Trump took office as the 45th President of the United States, as Biden received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and declined, in Hunter’s words, to properly credit his family for his life’s work. From the “hard drive from hell” – from which The National Pulse has conducted some of the most substantive and consistent reporting – the message comes from Hunter’s notes app, and details a bizarre family dynamic which places Joe Biden at the top, like

The chairman of the Lancet medical journal’s COVID-19 Commission – one of the foremost scientific groups supporting the “natural origins” theory – admitted that the National Institute of Health and its grant recipients, including Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance, “acted badly” with a “lack of transparency.” The admission from Chairman Jeffrey Sachs follows extensive National Pulse reporting into the conflicts of interest – through research funding and personnel – held by individuals placed on the Lancet’s “Origins, Early Spread of the Pandemic, and One Health Solutions to Future Pandemic Threats” committee. Amongst the high-profile individuals on the committee was Peter Daszak,
President Biden’s son Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca firm considered the idea of asset stripping the U.S. Postal Service, previously unseen e-mails have revealed. The news comes as Joe Biden attempts to oust the current Postmaster General over election fraud concerns. Writing to colleagues including Hunter Biden – the disgraced son of then-Vice President Joe Biden – Rosemont Seneca partner Neil Callahan said, “I still love this idea,” before forwarding an e-mail discussing the asset stripping of the U.S. Postal Service, The National Pulse can reveal.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Division Assistant Director revealed the agency is unaware of the location of Hunter Biden’s laptop and failed to assess whether or not the first son’s hard drive – which reveals countless business deals and personal relationships with America’s adversaries – contained information comprising America’s national security. The revelation came during a line of questioning from Congressman Matt Gaetz, who inquired with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Bryan Vorndran for details about the laptop of President Joe Biden’s son. Unearthed emails, texts, and photos from replicas of the original hard drive have revealed Hunter Biden’s

A Chinese state-run company linked to Hunter Biden, the son of the President of the United States, recently partnered with Saudi Arabia’s leading petroleum and natural gas company to collaborate on energy production, The National Pulse can reveal. The agreement – reported elsewhere without the Hunter Biden link – comes amidst Saudi and United Arab Emirates (UAE) leaders declining calls with President Joe Biden amidst America’s surging oil and gas prices. In the same time period, Saudi Arabia’s state-backed firm Saudi Aramco signed a “preliminary agreement” with China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) aimed at boosting “its presence in the
Rheanne Wirkkala – recently tapped by President Joe Biden to advise Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin – appears to have been duped by a prank phone call offering compromising material on Donald Trump while working for her prior boss, Congressman Adam Schiff. Wirkkala, who is awaiting Senate confirmation for the role of Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs at the Pentagon, currently serves as the Special Assistant for Strategy to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. “In that role, Wirkkala helps drive Secretary Austin’s national defense priorities, and is responsible for long-term strategic planning for the Secretary of Defense,” explains the White
The White House is set to blacklist several Chinese Communist Party-linked tech firms including those counting backing from investment funds linked to Hunter Biden. Adding to the 60 Chinese groups already on the “Chinese military-industrial complex companies” investment blacklist, among the eight companies added by President Joe Biden include Megvii. The technology firm’s facial recognition software has been linked to the Chinese Communist Party’s mass surveillance operations of Uyghurs in Xinjiang as reported by the Financial Times and, more broadly, the regime’s social credit score system. The company’s deep ties to Beijing come amidst massive investment from BHR Partners – a private equity

On one hand, the Biden-Harris White House wants to fight China’s military industrial complex and malign surveillance activities. On the other hand, it doesn’t want to be “accusatory.” Yank Investments? Sure. “Be Accusatory?” No. Joe Biden issued an executive order expanding President Donald Trump’s blacklist of Chinese firms linked to China’s military and development of state surveillance technology. The new order clarifies the extent of the ban’s reach, adding subsidiaries of firms that appeared in the original order. The ban on new investments in the 59 companies begins August 2, 2021.

Hunter Biden’s friends appeared to mock “f*ggots” and “d*kes” in emails unearthed by the National Pulse from the president’s son’s hard drive. The June 21st, 2017 email follows The Daily Mail reporting Hunter’s repeated use of the n-word in text message conversations with his lawyer. Included in an invite to a “beach weekend getaway” in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, sender William Medford discusses how “at some point we may bear witness to f*gots holding hands and dikes bumping claims.” Medford offsets the message with a disclaimer noting it “may or may not have the approval of the GLTB community.” In full, the email
President Joe Biden banned investment in nearly 60 firms due to close ties to the Chinese Communist Party military operations and human rights abuses. Among the companies included in the ban are entities that have enjoyed millions of dollars in investment from Hunter Biden and Bill Gates, The National Pulse can reveal. The new ban “solidifies and strengthens” a Trump-era Executive Order restricting securities investments in firms that work alongside China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and provide technology to facilitate the repression of Uyghurs in Xinjiang. The Biden regime posits that halting cash flow to these entities will ensure American
Patrick Ho – Hunter Biden’s business partner whom he dubbed the “spy chief of China” – insisted that China “has nothing to be apologetic about” regarding climate change and pollution. The remarks come from a blog post written by Ho, who appears multiple times in Hunter’s e-mails, as the pair inked million-dollar business contracts. Ho served as the chairman of CEFC China Energy during his work with the president’s son, before being indicted by the Justice Department for “schemes to bribe top officials for business advantages.” Ho’s writings appear to confirm a sentiment that many Americans outside the Biden White House
On Day 97, the Biden team gave fully-vaccinated Americans permission to reclaim the great outdoors. In “Many Situations,” The Vaccinated Don’t Need Masks, CDC Says. Great news! The CDC announced that you don’t need to wear a mask outdoors. If you’re fully vaccinated. And if it’s not crowded. “There are many situations where fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask, particularly if they are outdoors,” CDC director Rochelle Walensky announced in a briefing. “Generally, for vaccinated people, outdoor activities without a mask are safe.” Walensky added that if you’re fully vaccinated, you can even resume some activities
Hunter Biden has said that he is considering writing a sequel to his memoir “Beautiful Things,” which completely bombed in terms of sales, despite media hype and a press tour. Hunter Biden told the Mad World podcast the proposed book will be on “his relationship with wife Melissa Cohen, a South African filmmaker he met in 2019 and married shortly after, and her role in helping him recover from his crack addiction,” according to Fox News. “That’s where the book ends, but the one thing I really do feel almost an obligation to speak about or write about in the
The Biden White House has been steadfastly silent on leaked tapes revealing that Climate Czar John Kerry swapped secrets about Israeli military operations with Iranian officials. It seems the former Secretary of State is getting off scot-free for briefing a country designated by the U.S. government as a state sponsor of terror. The tapes should play out to be a major international scandal, even constituting grounds for Kerry’s termination, as Iran’s Foreign Minister divulges that Kerry “informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times.” But when pressed on the matter, Press Secretary Jen Psaki
After a life of lies and corrupt business deals with America’s adversaries, Hunter Biden is slated to lecture students at Tulane University for a “Media Polarization and Public Policy Impacts” course. The 10-week course, which focuses on “the current state of the media landscape in the United States and how media polarization, fake news and the economics of the new business impact public policymaking in Washington D.C.,” follows a trail of controversial documents and pictures leaking from the president’s son’s hard drive. Among the contents of the hard drive – reported on exclusively by The National Pulse – reveal Hunter
A new TIPP poll found that the overwhelming majority of Americans – including Democrats – favor appointing a special counsel for President Biden’s son Hunter. 68 percent of Americans expressed support for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel for Biden family members in response to the following question: “President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and President Biden’s brother, James Biden, are allegedly under federal investigation for tax and financial matters. Do you agree or disagree that Attorney General Merrick Garland should appoint a special counsel to manage their cases independently of the Biden administration?” 42 percent agreed strongly,
Hunter Biden’s autobiography Beautiful Things sold just over 10,000 copies in its first week. “It was edged out slightly in the rankings by ‘The Calcium Connection: The Little-Known Enzyme at the Root of Your Cellular Health,” The Daily Mail notes. The 272-page autobiography written by the president’s son debuted at number 12 on the Publisher’s Weekly hardcover nonfiction chart after selling a meager 10,638 copies. The flop follows a massive press campaign, including Hunter Biden making appearances on BBC, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and twice on CBS News.
Previously unseen e-mails on Hunter Biden’s “Hard Drive from Hell” point to never-before-seen evidence of involvement by Joe Biden in his son’s lucrative business dealings in Ukraine with natural gas conglomerate Burisma Holdings, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal. In a previously unreported email reviewed by The National Pulse, Rosemont Seneca Partners employee Joan K. Peugh advises Hunter Biden – who is addressed by his given name, Robert – that he is scheduled for a White House meeting on April 16th, 2014. Prior to today, it was known that Devon Archer had attended the meeting in the West Wing, and
After months of mainstream media coverup and big tech censorship of the contents of Hunter Biden’s hard drive, the president’s son admitted: “there could a laptop out there.” The remarks come from an interview with CBS to promote his new memoir, Beautiful Things. When pressed on the laptop, he repeatedly insisted “I don’t know” before admitting the laptop “could” be his: “Of course, certainly. There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.
The Chinese Communist Party’s Cyberspace Administration of China has boasted of one of the most critical connections between the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the groups and individuals campaigning to stop President Trump and his “America First” agenda, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal. New, bombshell admissions over China’s influence in both the United States and Europe link organizations such as the Berggruen Institute with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Berggruen Institute first rose to national attention after co-founding the “Transition Integrity Project” which advised on how Joe Biden could seize power on the back of

Dozens of reporters, journalists, and news anchors enjoyed a close-knit relationship with Joe Biden and his family, dating back to his Vice Presidency and linked to his private parties – thrown at taxpayer expense at the Vice President’s residence – known as “Biden Beach Boardwalk Bashes,” the National Pulse can reveal. The news may go some way to explaining why CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and many others ignored the Hunter Biden laptop story of 2020. The Boardwalk Bash. The Biden Beach Boardwalk Bash was a pool party held in June at the Vice
President Biden is seeking resignations from all of President Trump’s U.S. Attorneys with the exception of John Durham and David Weiss. The move will pave the way for the former veep to choose the nation’s top federal prosecutors. “The requests will affect 56 Senate-confirmed U.S. attorneys appointed by Trump. Many of Trump’s appointees already resigned,” The Week notes. However, David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware will continue to oversee a tax investigation of Hunter Biden and U.S. Attorney John Durham will keep his position as special counsel investigating the origins of the Trump-Russian investigation while resigning as U.S. attorney for
A senior Biden National Security Council member – Kurt Campbell – has worked with Chinese Communist Party front groups, even keynote-ing a major conference alongside a man Hunter Biden worked with and called “the f*cking spy chief of China,” The National Pulse can exclusively reveal. The details including the connections to the 46th President’s son, Hunter, will no doubt cause consternation in national security and China-hawk circles, as well as raise questions as to Campbell’s relationship with a company charged with bribing U.S. figures. Listen (full article follows): Campbell – President Biden’s new “Asia Czar” – has bounced around the
Hunter Biden has reportedly moved to Los Angeles to launch an art career alongside George Berges, who has appeared on Chinese state-run media. The President’s son is said to be prepping a solo show with Berges, a high-profile art dealer currently representing clients such as Sylvester Stallone. The artistic endeavor follows Hunter Biden inking lucrative deals with a host of Chinese Communist Party-linked businesses, which many allege he still owns stakes in. Berges galleries have been praised on Sinovision – an outlet that has a “very close relationship” to the Chinese Communist Party’s Overseas Chinese Affairs Office. Berges has also
President Biden has revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to keep foreign countries and companies out of America’s bulk power systems – principally entities associated with the Chinese Communist Party – as part of his “Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.” The executive order, which executes key tenets of President Biden’s climate change agenda, was released on the former Veep’s first day in office. Section 7 of the massive order, which includes the revocation of the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, also revokes several climate and energy-focused

The emails, originally reported by Loomered.com, outline an intimate relationship dating back over a decade. Emails from October 2010 show Facebook’s Public Policy Manager Adam Conner talking directly with Hunter Biden about the removal of a profile on the social media platform.

A review of Hunter Biden’s business records reveal the former veep’s son still retains a sizable stake in a Chinese Communist Party-linked private equity firm. The Wall Street Journal, later confirmed by Fox News, reported that Hunter Biden retains a 10 percent equity stake in Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Co. through Skaneateles LLC. Hunter Biden is the sole beneficial owner of Skaneateles, according to corporate records.

Following the announcement Joe Biden’s son Hunter was under federal investigation for taxes and foreign business dealings, mainstream media nets dedicated a scant .39 percent of coverage to the story.

A subpoena seeking documents from Hunter Biden asked for information related to more than two dozen entities, including Ukraine gas company Burisma, according to a person familiar with a Justice Department tax investigation of President-elect Joe Biden’s son. The breadth of the subpoena, issued Tuesday, underscores the wide-angle lens prosecutors are taking as they examine the younger Biden’s finances and international business ventures. Hunter Biden’s ties to Burisma in particular have long dogged the policy work and political aspirations of his father, Joe Biden, now the president-elect of the United States. It’s unclear whether Hunter Biden’s work at the Ukrainian
Project Veritas released a CNN editorial call revealing the network plotting to neglect covering corrupt business arrangements – potentially involving then-candidate Joe Biden – exposed on Hunter Biden’s leaked hard drive. CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard downplaying the credibility of the story by deferring to The Wall Street Journal’s analysis of the hard drive from the former veep’s son: I do think, on the Breitbart, New York Post, Fox News rabbit hole of Hunter Biden which I don’t think anybody outside of that world understood. Last night, the Wall Street Journal reported that their review of all corporate
President Trump moved to ban American capital from being invested in Chinese Communist Party military proxies – an individual who would have violated the new regulation is Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden. President Trump announced via executive order that beginning January 11th, 2021 investment in “any Communist Chinese military company” will be outlawed. One such company that would fall under this classification is China General Nuclear Power Corp, which the U.S. Department of Defense recently labeled as a decades-long partner of the Chinese military. BHR Partners, a private equity firm where Hunter Biden served as director since its 2013 founding,
Emails found on Hunter Biden’s hard drive reveal his Chinese Communist Party-linked business partners, Ye Jianming of CEFC China Energy, offering to meet with “H and the family in NYC.” The emails, dated May of 2017, show correspondence between James Gilliar, a partner on the CEFC venture, and Raymond Zhao who serves in CEFC’s “General Manager Office.” CEFC, which boasts extensive ties to the People’s Liberation Army, is the same entity referenced in a New York Post exposè highlighting how Hunter Biden leveraged his father’s name to ink deals with the Chinese government-linked entity. The article also outlines how Joe Biden
President Trump is set to win re-election “by an electoral college landslide” according to a new poll from an outlet that rightly predicted his 2016 victory: the Democracy Institute poll for the Sunday Express. According to the Sunday Express: “Donald Trump is on course to win four more years in the White House with a one point lead in the popular win, the final Democracy Institute poll for the Sunday Express has found. The survey of voters by the US President’s favourite pollsters gives him 48 percent ahead of his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent.” The poll attributes President
The number of searches for “Hunter Biden” in October has exceeded the number of searches for “WikiLeaks” in 2016. As highlighted by Jack Posobiec, Googletrends shows how searches for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son have surpassed queries for WikiLeaks, which leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee, candidate Hillary Clinton, and her campaign advisors. There appears to be more interest, however, in Hunter Biden, following a host of documents, email threads, and images leaking from his hard drive.

E-mails from Hunter Biden’s hard drive show the former veep’s son referring to Karim Massimov – head of Kazakhstan’s intelligence and espionage agency who met with Joe Biden – as a “close friend.” Massmiov, who also served as Prime Minister of the country from 2007 to 2012 and 2014 to 2016, now heads Kazakhstan’s National Security Committee (NSC). Kazakhstan’s NSC is the country’s premier intelligence agency and was formed as an offshoot of the Soviet Union’s KGB in 1992, and has retained several former KGB spies as its leadership and employees. Despite these ties, evidently presenting a conflict of interest,
