Stopping the DOUBLE STANDARDS NOW-- Question for All Politicians and Others:
“Most people knowing that Hunter Biden did NOT speak Ukrainian and had NO Knowledge about Gas and Oil but was paid Millions by Burisma simply because his father, Joe, was Vice President would see this is both highly UNETHICAL and CORRUPT. Do you personally understand why President Trump not only had the Right, but the Responsibility to Investigate such Corruption on behalf of America?
Issue: DOUBLE STANDARDS of Fake News and “Politics as Usual”-- President Trump v Joe Biden
“I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine
knows a lot about it….”
“There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me.” President Trump talking with Ukraine President Zelinsky, 7/25/19
“I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired.” -- Former Vice President Joe Biden, Council on Foreign Relations, 1/23/18
In order to better appreciate the hypocritical DOUBLE STANDARDS apply to President Trump vs VP Joe Biden, it is useful to compare what was actually said by both when dealing with issues related to Corruption in the Ukraine. Below are summaries of their remarks on the subject. The following are issues to be noted:
1.Both President Trump and Joe Biden agree that Corruption in the Ukraine is a serious issue.
2.But, whereas President Trump is Congratulatory towards Ukrainian President Zelinsky, Joe Biden is clearly THREATENING former Ukrainian President Yanukovych that if he does not FIRE then-Top Prosecutor Viktor Slotkin in Six Hours, Ukraine will NOT get $1 Billion in US aid.
3.At the time, Prosecutor Slotkin was investigating Ukraine’s largest gas company, Burisma, who had hired Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, in spite of him having absolutely NO experience with the Ukraine, let alone the gas and Energy Field. For his “services,” Hunter received $50-80 K/month totaling more than several Million Dollars only resigning when Joe Biden announced his run for Presidency. (See also China.)
4.Like most people at the time, Joe Biden made a “calculated gamble” that Hillary was going to win the 2016 election and that he would be in the Private Sector before anything was ever said about Hunter.
5.Simply put, this was Joe’s last chance for his son, Hunter, to “cash in” on Joe’s Vice Presidency.
6.“Unfortunately” for Joe, Hillary lost. (See Chicago’s own many similar Scandals over the years.)
7.President Trump may have delayed Javelin missiles for 50 days. Obama and Biden NEVER even offered such military aid in their EIGHT YEARS in office. So who is doing more to truly Defend the Ukraine?
8.President Trump had not only the Right, but the Responsibility to ask President Zelinski to “look into” potential Corruption on the part of both Hunter and Joe Biden that Directly affected United States citizens.
9.The FACT that No Democrats, including Mike Quigley, have questioned the ETHICS, let alone possible Corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden is EXACTLY what is WRONG with “Politics as Usual” in Washington.
10.These are the hypocritical DOUBLE STANDARDS of Fake News at their worst. THIS MUST STOP!!!

MEMORANDUM OF TELEPHONE CONVERSATION
SUBJECT: (C) Telephone Conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine
PARTICIPANTS: President Zelensky of the Ukraine
Notetakers: The White House Situation Room
DATE, TIME July 25, 2019, 9:03 -9:33 a.m. EDT
AND PLACE: Residence
The President: Congratulations on a great victory. We all watched from the United States and you did a terrific job. The way you came from behind, somebody who wasn't given much of a chance, and you ended up winning easily. It's a fantastic achievement. Congratulations.
President Zelenskyy: You• are absolutely right Mr. President. We did win big and we worked hard for this. We worked a lot but I would like to confess to you that I had an opportunity to learn from you….
The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike. I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it. There-are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you are surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to and I would like have the Attorney General call you or your people to •get to the bottom of it. As you said yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, •it's very important that you do it if that's possible.
(Note: Somewhat ironically, the Democrat National Committee gave Hillary’s server to Cyber Experts Crowdstrike to “investigate” Russian Hacking. Crowdstrike is owned by a wealthy Ukrainian, Dmitri Alperovitch. The DNC and CrowdStrike have NEVER turned over Hillary’s DNC for the FBI to examine.)
President Zelenskyy: I guarantee as the President of Ukraine that all the investigations will be done openly and candidly. That I can assure you.
The President: Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the Mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what's happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news as were the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad. I just want to let you know that. The other thing, there's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me.
President Zelensky: I wanted to tell •you about the prosecutor. First of all I understand and I am knowledgeable about the situation. Since we have on the absolute majority in our Parliament; the next prosecutor general will be 100% my person, my candidate, who will be approved, by the parliament and will start as a new prosecutor in September. He or she will look. into the situation, specifically to the company that you mentioned in this issue.
The issue of the investigation of the case is actually the issue of asking sure to restore the honesty so we will take care of that and will work on the investigation of the case. On top of that, I would kindly ask you if you have any additional information that you can provide to us, it would be very helpful for the investigation to make sure that we administer justice in our country. With regards to the Ambassador to the United States from Ukraine as far as I recall her name me was that Ivanovich, she was I was a bad ambassador…. I the first one to agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous President and she was on his side. She would not accept me as a new President well enough.
. . . .
The President: Well, she' s going to go through some things. I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it. I'm sure you will figure it out. I heard the prosecutor was treated very badly and he was a very fair prosecutor so good luck with everything. Your economy is going• to get better and better I predict. You have a lot of assets. It's a great country. I have many Ukrainian friends, they are incredible people.
End of Conversation
JOE BIDEN, 23 JANUARY 2018: I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kiev in terms of corruption. They made—I mean, I’ll give you one concrete example. I was—not I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to—convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him.
I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired.
