A recent DailyMail.com story emphasized “flirty messages” from Hunter Biden’s Chinese-American secretary that were discovered on the laptop of the president’s son.
Article by Art Moore from WND.
And it certainly appears that the 29-year-old woman may be a “honey pot” of the kind planted by the Chinese Communist Party to draw in Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.
But legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who weighs in regularly on the daily news on his website, said that of greater interest to him is the mention in the newly reported messages of mass transfers of money to Hunter Biden and his uncle, Jim Biden.
In addition, Turley spotlighted the role of Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence.
A former Hunter Biden business partner in the CEFC deal, Tony Bobulinski, has claimed he met twice with Joe Biden to discuss the firm, which has ties to the Communist Party, and “what I was doing with his family’s name.” Bobulinski said it was clear that the former vice president was in charge of the family business enterprise trading off his status.
Turley noted that the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter, JiaQi Bao, made revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese.
Chinese intelligence may have planted the woman to create a sexual relationship that could be used to influence Hunter and ultimately his father, Turley said, much like the scandal involving Rep. Eric Swalwell’s intimate relationship with an alleged Chinese spy.
It’s not clear that Biden had an intimate relationship with Bao, but
her messages discuss Chinese accounts that appeared to have cash available to Biden to use at his discretion.
One section of a message to Hunter Biden, titled “Keep As Much Money As You Can,” urges him to drain cash accounts, including from a joint corporate vehicle with CEFC called Hudson West.
Turley acknowledges there is no recorded reponse from Hunter Biden to the messages, but they provide insight into the accounts and how Biden could pull expenses from the company.
Why would a communist Chinese firm give millions to Hunter?
Hunter Biden has insisted that the federal investigation of his business dealings is focused only on taxes and he will be cleared.
“That may be true,” Turley wrote. “However, we know that these transactions were flagged by federal authorities including claims over possible money laundering.”
He said that “as an attorney, I would be very concerned if my client was transferring such large amounts of money from these accounts.”
“There is a legitimate question of why a company closely connected to the Chinese government and possible Chinese intelligence would be giving millions to Hunter and his uncle,” Turley wrote.
The laptop shows that Hunter transferred about $1.4 million of funds from his company Owasco to his uncle’s consulting firm between 2017 and 2018.
Hunter and Joe Biden’s brother Jim partnered with CEFC in 2017, but the enterprise collapsed the following year when Ho was arrested and later convicted of bribery.
“The continued lack of interest in those connections by most of the media is astonishing and part of a continued blackout of virtually any scandals and possible crimes connected to Hunter,” Turley observed.
He said he feels the same way about the continued investigation of Rudy Giuliani’s efforts in the Ukraine.
“There is a legitimate media interest in whether laws were broken or whether Trump associates lied about these efforts,” he said. “My problem is that the media has overwhelming and continuing interest in one (Giuliani) and little interest in the other (Biden). Both raise serious questions that should be fully investigated and disclosed for the public.”
‘Deeply proud of his son’
Hunter Biden announced the Justice Department investigation of his “tax affairs” on Dec. 9, 2020, in a statement issued by the Biden-Harris transition team.
His father said through an aide at the time: “President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”
The previous evening, WND reported two Republican-led Senate committees concluded that members of Joe Biden’s family engaged in deals with Chinese nationals who had “deep connections” to the Communist Party.
Joe Biden has argued that there were 50 former national security officials, including five former heads of the CIA, who declared in a statement that the claims about Hunter Biden’s business dealings had the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign. However, the officials admitted they had no evidence to back their assertion and acknowledged that the messages — including those indicating Joe Biden not only knew about his son’s lucrative deals but also profited from them — were genuine.
The Media Research Center produced a video montage of establishment media insisting in 2019 there was no evidence Hunter Biden did anything illegal. Then, in October, when they were confronted with new evidence, they declared in unison it was Russian disinformation.

A post-election survey found more than one-third of voters who chose Joe Biden were not aware of the evidence linking the former vice president to corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter. Had they known, according to the survey commissioned by the Media Research Center, President Trump would have won at least 289 Electoral College votes.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
