“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
If Hunter Biden has a claim to fame, it’s that he’s raised graft, bribery, and corruption to a fine art.
He’s earned tens of thousands a month sitting on the board of Ukraine’s Burisma energy company, with no knowledge of Ukraine or energy.
He got a sweetheart deal from Communist China at the same time his dad was meeting Chinese leaders in Beijing.

Now, he’s literally using artwork to open a door for crony lobbyists and foreign agents to grease his palms—and his partner is a Chinese-tied art dealer once accused of making “terrorist threats.”
Biden has been making “modern art” to recover from his addiction — and now, he’s ready to sell them to any, and all takers.
Biden works his artistic magic by blowing paint through a straw. Hunter’s paintings are expected to rake in at least $75,000 — and possibly up to $500,000 — each.
That’s far above the money any professionally trained “starving artist” would make for a first painting: If they have incredible talent, and incredible luck, they would usually make $25,000 to $100,000.
Some of Hunter Biden’s works could even sell for up to $1 million… and Hunter thinks there’s nothing strange about the arrangement at all.
Hunter Biden riffed that art is “not a tool that I use to be able to, in any way, cope. It comes from a much deeper place.”
“For me, painting is much more about kind of trying to bring forth what is, I think, the universal truth,” he said.
Hunter Biden: universal truth-bringer.
But the fact that Biden is cashing in on his name isn’t the big problem… that’s the purchaser’s problem.
America’s problem is the fact that the people who purchase Biden’s “art” will remain anonymous.
Art auctions and purchases are always confidential, but when the artist is the president’s son, it raises serious questions about who’s cutting the big checks to the Big Guy — and why.
Peter Schweizer, who wrote the book Profile of Corruption, said Hunter Biden’s new con game is the same as his old con game.
“Hunter Biden was repeatedly hired and given deals by foreign entities that he was clearly not qualified for in the hopes of getting favors from his father,” the author told Breitbart News. “It is not a stretch to believe that foreign entities will pay for or commission his works of art at inflated prices to do the same.”
Hunter Biden’s partner might give some hints about who’s trying to buy the attention of the Biden family one painting at a time.

Biden’s works are being peddled by a Soho art dealer named Georges Berges, who has deep ties to China, according to media reports.
Berges “regularly features works by Chinese artists and told a Chinese network that he was keen to open other art galleries in Beijing and Shanghai in 2015,” according to The New York Post.
To make things more concerning, in 1998 law enforcement charged Berges with assault and making “terrorist threats” (although the terrorist threat charge was later dropped).
Who will be buying Hunter’s paintings anonymously? Is this just another corruption superhighway delivering truckloads of foreign money to President Joe Biden’s family… just like Hunter was accused of when his father was vice president?
When someone asked Hunter Biden what his father, the leader of the free world, thought about his new career, Hunter said, “My dad loves everything that I do and so I’ll leave it at that.”
Not everyone is a fan of his work, however.
One art collector told The New York Post, “I wouldn’t pay s**t for it because he’s a criminal.’’

But the real question isn’t how much an honest art enthusiast would pay for it. It’s how much would criminals pay for it, and what will they expect from Hunter — and the president — in return?
