Are the Bidens Mixed Up in Hedge Fund Scandal?
Contrarian Profits ^ | By Contrarian Profits

Posted on 05/02/2009 4:14:47 PM PDT by SouthernmostFreeper

Vice President Joe Biden may also have some difficult questions to answer, according to John Hempton who blogs at Bronte Capital.

Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge says:

John Hempton, who writes the insightful blog Bronte Capital, has done some amazing dot connecting in what, if true, and not swept promptly under the carpet by the powers that be, could expose a hedge fund scandal that could rival the Madoff fiasco, for the simple reason that it implicates none other than Barack Obama’s right hand man: Joe Biden....

This is an intricate story. And it is my no means conclusive. But Hempton has done a lot of good snoop work – enough to receive threats from lawyers. (As a former investigative journalist, I know that this is almost always a sign that a sensitive nerve has been touched.)

Doesn’t matter. The article posted immediatly before this, “Gail Collins covers for Biden”, says it all. Someone could have him or 0bama on videotape, commiting the crime of the century, and the media would bury the story.

No way will anyone in this administration be held accountable for anything, it seems. Fox News and ABC’s Jake Tapper seem to be alone in their efforts.

That article looks like it was written by a high school newsletter editor - horrible! What’s the point, and what are the facts?

It's just that sort of giving that Zero wants to stop. I have a feeling that "stay off the subway" was Plugs' final gaffe. It wouldn't be surprising to me if Barry's people are leaking this.

They'd much rather appoint a new Veep who will toe the party line a little better. And with the current makeup of Congress, they're guaranteed to get that person confirmed.

I'm expecting to hear of "complications from his latest hair plug treatment."

So, Obama leaks incriminating info about Biden. Gets him in trouble, forced to resign (like Agnew), and gets a new VP. It’s how Ford came to be VP and then President after Nixon resigned.

Obama gets rid of Biden, who is a constant embarrassment, and gets one of his cronies in as VP and, probably in his mind, successor.

Oh, come on, why bother with big-time corruption throughout the Vice President’s family, when there must be something left to learn about the Palins’ paper delivery boy’s third cousin skipping a class at school.

Then how about this...Biden removed and Hillary made VP a la Agnew. Now how much would you bet on 0bama surviving a first term?

I know, I know, crazy talk.

Just think, if Biden is forced to resign because of his criminal actions, well then, we wouldn’t have to worry about him becoming the new POTUS, if Obamas’ crimes rate a resignation or impeachment.

I don’t think Bambi plans on having any successors, but I bet he would love to get rid of Biden, who is such a lame-brain that even the press is laughing at him. And Bambi hates being laughed at or even having anything with which he is associated being laughed it.

I predicted this her course of events back in January. Biden is replaced by Bayh who then replaces the Bamster. Biden has to leave soon. Probably will have major health problems due to the stress and his previous illness. Then the end of 2010 or 2011, the Bamster resigns for some bs reason. I was the first to call it. The shadow govt that really runs things realizes that the Bamster was a big mistake.

But can’t you see that the nobama team and demos would really just love to throw this DA under the bus for someone more like the ONE almighty (in his mind - not mine)!

I have actually considered that. I think that if Bambi gets swine flu and is gathered to his 72 virgins, MO is going to rush forward and “claim” his position. The press is so totally enamored of her that they will support her, Constitution be damned. And I bet they’ll get away with it, too.

She’s as vicious as he is; she’s not an attractive person (neither is he, in my mind), but the press has deified her because of her connection with Bambi. Since the media now runs this country, I think she’d probably have a pretty good shot at it.

Hunter and James Biden are being sued since last year. I think there are two lawsuits but I would have to look up what I saved. Remember at the dnc when obama and biden had a little video of their lives and family? Hunter was mentioned and his career but not once mentioned as a lobbyist. Then it comes out he lobbied obama and obama got money in Illinois to send to Hunters cause. obama had previously said he had no interaction with Hunter or his firm.

I can’t get this story out of my mind when Biden’s family comes up. It seems outrageous but I keep thinking about it. How Biden was offered the VP position. Beau Biden, who VP Biden wants his senate seat to go to and all Biden family seems to be tangled in serious ways with corruption. Where there is smoke there is fire.
