The Press Openly Hides Facts

There is plenty of information ‘hidden in plain sight,’ when one understands how to ‘decode’ the media’s path to the ‘truth.’ Taken from newspaper reports over several years, federal records and financial documents show Hunter Biden’s businesses didn’t only benefit from foreign cash, they also got tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer-backed subsidies and loans.

Rosemont Seneca Partners, founded by Hunter along with business partners Devon Archer and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State Jon Kerry, oversaw tens of millions of federal security loans in 2009 through the founding of Rosemont TALF, a spinoff firm designed to handle funds from the Federal Reserve’s Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility program. The 2008 program was meant to increase consumer spending during the struggling economy and ended in 2014.

After Rosemont TALF was founded, a technology initiative on Maui linked to the larger Rosemont firm received millions in public funding before folding shortly thereafter. State documents shows that mbloom, a tech fund for startups on the island of Maui, received $5 million in combined state and federal funding, $2 million from Hawaii’s HI Growth initiative and $3 million from the federal State Small Business Credit Initiative.

Hunter Biden was listed as the managing director of Rosemont Seneca Technology Partner’s Washington office in early 2014, just as mbloom was getting started, while Archer was managing the company’s New York location.

The fund was ultimately given a matching $5 million investment by Devon Archer, the state announced in early 2014; that funding came via Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners. Almost immediately, controversy came with mbloom’s first two tech investments going to startups run by the fund’s two managers.

Then there is Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Co., Ltd., or BHR Partners, of which Hunter remains a director, is a private investment fund backed by some of China’s largest state banks, local government and the national pension fund. At its inception in 2014, BHR listed Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, as a shareholder that owned 30% of the fund.

A year later, the two partners in RST, a consortium of Rosemont Seneca and Thornton Group, split their shares in BHR, with Rosemont Seneca taking 20% and Thornton 10%. Rosemont Seneca unloaded its BHR stakes in 2017, while Thornton kept its shares.

BHR is known for being an early investor in some of the fastest-growing technology start-ups, including Didi Chuxing, the digital transport group. It has also invested in Megvii, a facial recognition start-up whose technology has been used in Chinese government surveillance of Uighur populations in China’s western provinces.

Also in 2014, Rosemont Seneca was involved in an attempted $1.5-billion fundraiser for a new fund launched by Harvest Fund Management and Bohai Industrial Group, the Chinese asset manager. The Bank of China International Holdings was one of the biggest stakeholders in Bohai at the time.

Following Devon Archer’s arrest in 2016 on securities fraud charges, the fund’s managers departed, and it was restructured as Reef Capital Ventures.

Hunter Biden’s BHR fund also made an investment in 2014 in the China General Nuclear Power Corp., China’s largest nuclear power company. In 2016, the company was charged along with a nuclear engineer named Szuhsiung “Allen” Ho for conspiring to help China illegally obtain “sensitive and controlled” nuclear technology from within the United States. Ho, a naturalized American citizen, plead guilty and was sentenced to two years in prison.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley raised concerns over the process by which the Obama administration’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approved the acquisition of a U.S. automotive technology company, Henniges in August 2019. Henniges was reportedly jointly acquired by Chinese government entities and an investment firm linked to Hunter Biden and Christopher Heinz.

In a letter to Department of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Grassley requested documents associated with the approval of the transaction, as well as other details that may speak to the legitimacy of the decision-making process, including any potential coordination with the Obama-Biden White House. Grassley was raising concerns about potential conflicts of interest because in September 2015, BHR joined with a subsidiary of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to acquire Henniges.

The Department of State, then under Kerry’s leadership, is a CFIUS member and would have played a direct role in the decision to approve the Henniges transaction.

As for AVIC, it was sanctioned of five separate occasions since 1993 for activities ranging from violating the Arms Export Control Act and proliferating missile technology in Pakistan to multiple violations related to trafficking missile and other military technology to Iran. In 2014, one AVIC subsidiary was added to the Obama-Biden Commerce Department’s ‘Entity List,’ indicating that AVIC was on the short-list for potential sanctions prior to the 2015 CFIUS decision.

Perhaps they should also look into the fact that more than 60 CIA agents were killed by the Communist Party of China because then-Vice-president Joe Biden gave them the names. This revelation comes following the discovery of the so-called “three Hunter Biden hard drives.”
