Clearly, Hunter Biden’s “art” career is just another scam to pad the Biden’s with millions of unearned dollars. That’s how Democrats roll.
Consequently, even Obama’s chief of ethics weighed in to call out Hunter for his scamming ways.
Now, if you had no idea the president’s son was a budding artist, don’t worry. No one else knew it either. Until his pieces suddenly started selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars. But the curiosities don’t stop there. Not only were his prices unbelievable, but his buyers remain nameless. That’s right, anonymous buyers are giving the president’s son a fortune cloaked in scandalous darkness.
Considering Biden’s dealings in China, it’s beyond reasonable to assume these “art deals” provide cover for a different type of transaction: selling access to the president. Yet, Hunter Biden finds the criticism offensive, and sent a message to his critics in a recent podcast.
As Fox News explains:
The younger Biden appeared Thursday on art podcast Nota Bene, where he responded to critics of his art dealings by saying “f— ’em.”
Hunter’s paintings are priced between $75,000 and $500,000, despite his lack of artistic experience, raising alarms among ethics experts.
“I never said what my art was going to cost or how much it would be priced at,” Biden told hosts Nate Freeman and Benjamin Godsill.
“I’d be amazed if my art had sold for $10, just because the first time you ever go about it is the idea someone is attracted to your art, let alone that they would pay something for it,” the president’s son continued.
Biden also said in the interview that the “value of an artist’s work is not necessarily determined by the price” and that said price is “completely subjective and has nothing to do with anything other than the moment.”
Is Biden's Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional?
Biden’s faux pas isn’t that surprising. Just because he’s the president’s son doesn’t mean he has an ounce of tact. However, it is somewhat surprising to see Biden facing scrutiny from members of the Obama Administration.
The article adds:
Former Obama White House ethics chief Walter Shaub scoffed at Hunter’s defense.
“The son of a sitting president is amazed anyone would pay more than $10 for his art?” Shaub told Fox News in a Friday email.
“He must have been positively flabbergasted when an influence-seeking tycoon gave him a large diamond a few years back,” Shaub quipped. “This old diamond? Why, I only wear it when I don’t care HOW I look.”
Shaub also pointed to a July 2019 New Yorker article that touched on the diamond the younger Biden received from Chinese energy tycoon Ye Jianming as he was trying to make connections with prominent American political players.
Three art critics and one art professor were asked by POLITICO earlier this week what they thought of Biden’s art and whether it warrants the half-million dollar price tag.
All of them said the prices were too high for what the art is and that the piece’s astronomical value came from Biden’s name, not his skill.
“In the case of anyone who has a celebrity name outside of art, as with Hunter Biden, it’s clearly the name of the artist that’s driving the price and if it sells, then that’s probably also the motivating factor for the person who buys it,” London art critic Tabish Khan said in the article.
Appropriate and Reasonable
The White House’s official response is that keeping buyers anonymous provides appropriate and reasonable safeguards against impropriety. Ha! That’s like saying Joe Biden doesn’t like young girls.
The truth is that we’ve already connected the dots between Hunter’s art and China! Yep, folks, Biden’s art dealer is a player on the global scene. His name is George Berges. In 2015, he was quoted as saying he wanted to be the art world’s lead guy in China.
“My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.”
He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.”
Talk about raising eyebrows! And it the famed words of the late Billy Mays, “wait! There’s more!” A little digging into Berges background reveals a sinister side.
In 1998, Berges was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and “terrorist threats,” which were later dismissed after 90 days in jail and 36 months probation.
Berges was also accused of defrauding an investor, Ingrid Arneberg, of half a million dollars and subsequently sued in 2016. Berges countersued Arneberg, settling the suit two years later.
Of course, we can’t expect the Biden’s to deal with “squeaky clean” associates. They completely lack respect- for themselves or their country. In fact, I think it’s safe to say Hunter Biden summed up his feelings towards America. “F#ck ’em!”
