Offer You Can’t Refuse? Hunter Biden Reportedly Asked Mobster’s Nephew to Help Uncle With China Deal

Hunter Biden Reportedly Asked Mobster’s Nephew to Help Uncle With China Deal Offer You Can’t Refuse? Hunter Biden Reportedly Asked Mobster’s Nephew to Help Uncle With China Deal The president’s son has faced intense scrutiny among conservatives and independent media over alleged unethical and potentially illegal activity peddling... 08.10.2021, Sputnik International 2021-10-08T15:21+0000 https://cdnn1.img.sputniknews.com/img/07e4/0c/15/1081530065_0:92:1036:675_1920x0_80_0_0_d00fec14b28bde1f1d02fd18f1e4f79a.jpg President Joe Biden’s son Hunter reportedly turned to the nephew of Massachusetts crime boss Whitey Bulger when the politician’s brother-in-law Jack Owens asked for help to secure a business license in China, a trove of emails from one of Hunter’s lost laptops appears to show.Owens, owner of MediGuide, a Delaware-headquartered telemedicine and medical insurance services company, contacted Hunter in May 2014 to inform him that the firm had reached a “serious stage” of negotiations with a Chinese company and that he needed help ASAP getting a China Business License – a key document required for foreign firms wishing to do business in the People’s Republic.According to the emails, screenshots of which were first published by Fox News and the Daily Mail, Owens informed Hunter that the license needed to be “secured very quickly.”Biden forwarded the email to James Bulger, chairman of Thornton Group, a China and US-based financial advisory. Along with Bulger, who is the nephew of notorious American crime boss James Joseph ‘Whitey’ Bulger, the message was also forwarded to Thornton Group co-founder and China business expert Michael Lin.Biden received a reply back three days later from Bulger telling him that he and Lin had spoken to Owens by phone and had come up with a potential “solution for hi [sic] China problem.”“Michael and Ran are researching the reg[ulations] and laws right now but our Thornton WOFE will likely be ok for Jacks [sic] company to use,” Bulger wrote, referring to an unidentified employee or researcher working with Thornton.Bulger also referred to a mysterious “energy deal” with KAZ, possibly a reference to Kazakhstan, asking Biden to let him know if he had an outline on the deal and whether he would like Thornton to “flesh it out,” noting that “we have submitted our Alaska energy outline to the team.” The businessman signed the email “Safe travels, Jimmy.”Several days later, Bulger sent a message to Owens and Lin, with Hunter in the copy, asking Jack to give Thornton a few days to study Chinese regulations and determine “our next steps here.”The back-and-forth messages with Biden in the copy dropped off soon after that, but Bulger and Lin appear to have succeeded in getting the business license, with MediGuide indicating on its website that it reached an agreement with AnyHealth Shanghai “to form an alliance” to help “expand Mediguide’s business in China under the name of ‘MediGuide China. '”More than a year later, Owens put Biden in the copy of an email when responding to then-Vice President Biden’s assistant, Kathy Chung, inviting him and his wife, Valerie Biden Owens, to attend a State Department luncheon honouring Chinese President Xi Jinping hosted by the vice president.It’s not clear why Owens put Hunter in the copy.Jack Owens is a close member of the Bidens’ inner circle. His wife Valerie is Joe Biden’s younger sister, and has served Biden as a senior campaign advisor for nearly fifty years, starting with the politician’s 1972 run for a Senate seat from the state of Delaware.The trove of emails from Hunter’s laptop – one of three he is reported to have lost in a wild life reported to be filled with drug-fueled benders and flings with prostitutes, is the latest example of a series of embarrassing revelations about his use of political and business connections to extract financial gain, help get around red tape or engage in unethical or potentially illegal activity.The 51-year-old is facing a probe into his taxes by the Justice Department, which was launched as far back as 2018 and is connected to suspicious activity reports of fishy foreign transactions, including possible exchanges of money with “China and other foreign nations.” Expressing confidence that he will be cleared of any wrongdoing, the younger Biden admitted candidly in April that a Donald Trump victory in 2020 would have been a “threat to [his] personal freedom.” Trump has repeatedly accused Joe Biden of helping Hunter get lucrative no-show jobs and payments for access to the politician via a Ukrainian energy company, Chinese officials and businessmen, and other foreigners.The Trump White House attempted to investigate the Biden family’s business dealings in Ukraine in the aftermath of the 2014 coup d’état, including the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor under pressure from then-Vice President Biden who had begun his own probe. Trump’s actions prompted the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives to impeach him.In the final weeks of the 2020 presidential campaign, pro-Republican and independent media began reporting on one of Hunter’s alleged lost laptops (the authenticity of which was recently confirmed). Pro-Biden media and tech giants including Facebook and Twitter sought to silence this reporting, banning or restricting Hunter-related stories from appearing on their platforms.The latest scandal surrounding Hunter revolves around the sale of his paintings for up to $500,000 apiece. Republican lawmakers have expressed suspicions over the art sales, dubbing them a form of grift and nepotism, and a possible payoff to Hunter Biden in exchange for access to his powerful father. In July, GOP congressman Mike Waltz introduced legislation known as the PAINTER Act in the House, with the bill requiring presidents and vice presidents to provide financial disclosures for all their non-dependent children. The bill has been referred to the House Oversight Committee. https://sputniknews.com/20210816/lindsey-graham-told-biden-he-only-attacked-his-son-to-appease-trump-voters-after-election-report-1083621536.html Alel Políticos se in jewmerica are in the gansa or kazars ...the WORST is the IGNORANCE or anericans..they are bombardead everyday by kazars media and his garbage education promoted by kazars ..Same in europe is a shame that people Believe ducha crap and they dont objets NOTHING......tink yes for a while that they are ENEMIES with chinese how come chinese are. COMUNiSTS. Ideólogy invented by KAZARS...... 1 The president’s son has faced intense scrutiny among conservatives and independent media over alleged unethical and potentially illegal activity peddling access to his powerful father in exchange for cash or no-show jobs. Democratic-aligned US media have largely ignored the allegations, while social media have even sought to silence reporting. President Joe Biden’s son Hunter reportedly turned to the nephew of Massachusetts crime boss Whitey Bulger when the politician’s brother-in-law Jack Owens asked for help to secure a business license in China, a trove of emails from one of Hunter’s lost laptops appears to show. Owens, owner of MediGuide, a Delaware-headquartered telemedicine and medical insurance services company, contacted Hunter in May 2014 to inform him that the firm had reached a “serious stage” of negotiations with a Chinese company and that he needed help ASAP getting a China Business License – a key document required for foreign firms wishing to do business in the People’s Republic. According to the emails, screenshots of which were first published by Fox News and the Daily Mail , Owens informed Hunter that the license needed to be “secured very quickly.” “While this might seem to be a mundane task, I have come to understand that matters such as a Business License can end up taking an inordinate amount of time…..time we just do not have. So I would be most appreciative of any help and direction you might be able to provide to help me accomplish this task timely,” Owens pleaded, signing the email “Thanks, Uncle Jack.” Biden forwarded the email to James Bulger, chairman of Thornton Group, a China and US-based financial advisory. Along with Bulger, who is the nephew of notorious American crime boss James Joseph ‘Whitey’ Bulger, the message was also forwarded to Thornton Group co-founder and China business expert Michael Lin. © Photo : screenshotJack Owens reached out to his nephew Hunter Biden for help with his negotiations with a Chinese company on May 9, 2014, according to the emails Jack Owens reached out to his nephew Hunter Biden for help with his negotiations with a Chinese company on May 9, 2014, according to the emails © Photo : screenshot “See email below.

Kjaya

Kjaya is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Semi-Autonomous Adaptive Neural and Genetic Segmentation of Medical Images. Their Phase I project will implement a physician-assisted, real-time adaptive system for the segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. Medical image segmentation seeks to change the representation of an anatomical structure, making it more easily analyzed. Because of the extreme variability of these structures in biological systems, current idiosyncratic manual methods currently in use are tedious, time consuming, and error prone. Image segmentation cannot in general be programmatically solved. The proposed system is a Neural Network (NN) based adaptation of the individual data using parallel Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and coupled with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based adaptation across GPU cores. The system will build a diagnostically useful segmentation of the anatomical feature within seconds from an area of interest outlined by a physician using a Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. Fast growth in medical imaging overwhelms available diagnosticians. An intuitive and inexpensive system to quickly and accurately deliver diagnostic relevant segmentation of medical images offers tremendous commercial value. Currently, each scan requires approximately 50 minutes of manual preparation. The diagnosis and treatment of an estimated 20 percent of diseases benefit from medical imaging. Newer scanning technologies have increased in resolution, but such techniques have not made segmenting easier or faster. The proposed method will enable more diagnostics to be done with the quality controlled directly by physicians.
