Evidence of Biden Family Influence-peddling Schemes Is 'Everywhere,' Says Comer

Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the chair of the House Oversight Committee, says that there is “evidence everywhere” pointing to Joe Biden’s family being “involved in influence-peddling schemes for decades.”Comer appeared on Sunday Morning Futures with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo to discuss the latest revelations in Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal and how it fits the “pattern of an influence operation.”

On Saturday, more classified documents were discovered at Joe Biden’s Wilmington, Del., house despite claims by the White House that the search for documents had concluded.

“​It’s very startling. And with respect to the documents, Maria, I took the president at his word when the first set of documents was found at the Biden Center for Diplomacy that he had just ended verbally misplaced those documents. But now this is gone from just simply being irresponsible to downright scary,” Comer said. “This has all the pattern of an influence-peddling scheme. And it also has the makings of a potential cover-up​.”

Comer argued that this raises significant questions about what the Biden administration is trying to hide from Americans.

“The White House isn’t being truthful with the American people,” Comer said. “We need to know now who had access to those documents because our national security could be at risk.”​

Bartiromo then asked if it amounts to treason, but Comer wasn’t ready to go that far… yet.

​”It’s very concerning. We’re not going to let up. I think that we have got plenty of information to move forward. This would be a lot easier if the White House would work with us.”

Reports of Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business dealings, and the potential influence peddling that may have been a part of it, were exposed before the 2020 election but went uninvestigated by the Democrat majorities in the House and Senate. It took the GOP winning the House majority in November for investigations to finally take place, and according to Comer, the evidence of corruption is “everywhere.”

“You know, investigating Hunter and the Biden family is about like tracking a bleeding bear through a snowstorm. There is evidence everywhere that would point out that this family has been involved in influence-peddling schemes for decades. And this is very concerning.”

Has Biden Been Hoarding Classified Docs for Decades?

It seemed clear from the beginning that Biden’s classified documents scandal was worse than Trump’s, and yet in the two weeks since it just keeps getting worse. Not only have more documents been found on more than one occasion, some of the classified documents that were among those most recently discovered date back to when he was a U.S. senator.

According to Bob Bauer, Biden’s personal lawyer, on Friday, “DOJ took possession of materials it deemed within the scope of its inquiry, including six items consisting of documents with classification markings and surrounding materials, some of which were from the President’s service in the Senate and some of which were from his tenure as Vice President” (emphasis added).

Joe Biden served in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009, and until we get further information, we don’t know how old the documents are. This means that he’s had classified documents in his possession for as little as six years, or as long as fifty years.

The Justice Department is now considering expanding its search to more locations linked to Joe Biden. Just what will they find, and where?

And what has Joe Biden been doing with these classified documents all these years?

Gov. Ron DeSantis Lowers the *BOOM* on Florida Teachers’ Unions

Gov. Ron DeSantis Lowers the *BOOM* on Florida Teachers' Unions

Florida teachers’ unions are about to lose a major source of funding, along with a novel new regulation on administrator pay, if Gov. Ron DeSantis gets his way.

It’s a big, bold move — and increasingly typical for America’s most aggressively conservative governor.

Speaking at an event called “Florida, the Education State” in Jacksonville on Monday, DeSantis outlined his plan to rein in unions’ power.

DeSantis opened the event with the good news first, detailing how teachers’ salaries were up under his administration, fulfilling a promise to hit a minimum average salary of $47,500 for Florida teachers. With that goal met, “the state would put more funds into a program to raise salaries of current teachers,” according to WFLA.

Then he lowered the *BOOM* on the unions, announcing his intention to end the automatic deduction of union dues from teachers’ paychecks.

When then-Wisconsin governor Scott Walker signed similar legislation in 2011 affecting all public sector unions, both dues collection and membership plummeted.

“We also believe,” DeSantis said, “and will be reflected in this proposal, if you’re working in a school union, you should not make more than the school’s highest-paid teacher.”

In other words, a hard cap on union officials’ pay that’s pegged to what actual schoolteachers are paid.

According to the most recent figures I could find (2016), the Florida Education Association — the state’s largest teachers’ union — has 43 officials earning more than $100,000 a year. Their average compensation back then was $131,000. That six-year-old figure is more than double the average teacher’s pay after DeSantis delivered on pay hikes.

Keep in mind, those big, six-figure union salaries come straight out of teachers’ paychecks, with or without their permission.

But here’s the kicker.

Going even further, the DeSantis plan would require that a union represent more than half of all teachers in any district in order to engage in collective bargaining with that district. The proposal would also prevent unions from keeping “zombie” teachers on their membership rolls after they quit paying dues.

So if enough teachers in a given school district were to give their union the old heave-ho, then that union would be effectively moribund there.

Over at Fox News, Paul Zimmerman called the proposal a “blueprint to dominate teachers’ union bosses,” but I’d politely disagree. To me, it looks more like a plan to stop Florida teachers’ unions from dominating education policy while hoovering up teachers’ paychecks without their consent.

Ron DeSantis took his swing state and turned it bright red. Now he might do the same to the state’s K-12 schools — and I can’t think of a better way for him to deliver real, long-lasting change to Florida.

Heroic Meteorologist Defends Elderly Man From Vicious Teens, Is Severely Beaten

Adam Klotz, a 37-year-old weatherman on Fox News, came to the defense of an elderly man who was being harassed and burned by a pack of vicious teens — and took a savage beating for his trouble.

Klotz got on the subway around 12:45 Sunday morning to head home after watching the Giants lose at a Manhattan bar. On the train, he saw that an elderly gentleman sitting nearby was being harassed by a pack of teens. “There’s a group of teens, and one of them’s lighting a joint, and just, with that lighter, they put it in the guy’s hair,” Klotz related during a Monday appearance on Fox & Friends. “And his hair went up — pffft! — like a matchbook.”

But of the 25 to 30 passengers in the car, Klotz was apparently the only one who was moved to defend the man. “And I was like, ‘Whoa, you can’t do that. That’s not cool,'” recounted the manly meteorologist. “And that’s all it took. And then I was the focus of all their attention.”

The unruly kids began taunting him, and he attempted to move away from them. But they followed him to another car and punched him. He finally went to get off the train several stops later, but then, when the train doors opened, the whole group “bum-rushed” him.

“And suddenly, I’m on the ground. I’m getting kicked in the side, I’m getting wailed on. They’re like, ‘Put him to sleep, put him to sleep!’ They were trying to knock me out,” explained Klotz. “And then, once you’re unconscious and you’re getting punched, there’s like no defense.” Klotz used his arms to protect his head and wound up getting kicked and punched in the ribs and knee.

The weatherman said no one tried to intervene as the beatdown was in progress, though people were quick to help once the rabid pack moved on. He said he “gets it,” though — “Look what happens when you step up for somebody. I tried to step up for somebody and this is what just happened to me. Why would anybody want to do this to themselves?”

Klotz estimated the gang numbered seven or eight kids between 15 and 17 years of age. The NYPD quickly nabbed three of them — and just as quickly released them to their parents without filing charges.

When asked how the lack of consequences for his assailants made him feel, Klotz said, “I want there to be something done. It’s more like, why is the weather guy on the train trying to stop crime in the middle of the night? Like, where is Eric Adams? Where’s the city? Why am I doing this? Why is it up to me?”

Klotz is clearly in considerable pain in a video he posted to Instagram in the aftermath of the attack. In the video, he claims he was beaten by “children.”

“Where are the parents?” Klotz demands rhetorically between sobs of cynical laughter. “God … don’t — don’t — don’t let your kids come beat me up in the middle of the night again, please. Parents! Watch your children.”

On Fox & Friends, Klotz vented his frustration that all the consequences of the assault will fall on him, the victim, who must recover from injuries and pay a deductible out-of-pocket for his hospitalization, while neither the thugs who beat him nor their parents will go to jail or pay a dime. He is currently considering filing a criminal complaint but is hesitant to push for punishment for the youths, for what he sees as systemic failures.

Klotz’s instinct to protect children’s futures is admirable. When asked by Fox News host Steve Doocy if he would file a complaint, which would allow the city to consider whether to charge the hooligans, the meteorologist hesitated before answering, “I don’t know. I want — I want someone to be held responsible, but really what I want is some sort of change. I don’t want this to happen to somebody else, and I don’t think necessarily, just, these kids getting in trouble — like, where’s the structural change?” Klotz called on Mayor Adams to put more cops in the subways.

“I would love it if some sort of change happened out of this,” he said.

Unfortunately, in New York State and NYC’s consequence-free gangstas’ paradise, nothing is going to change any time soon. Why would it?
