Have you any idea how many times Joe Biden, the President of the United States, has been to the Ukraine? An awful lot!
Have you any idea how much money he has bragged about withholding from that country’s government when it attempted to do the right thing?
How much money has the Biden family made from Ukraine energy?
Why did the Ukraine push so hard for NATO membership, when it was well known this would be a red flag to Russia – to Vladimir Putin.
Who’s been ‘setup’ in all of this, and why?
Does the United States always need to have a war to which it can provide armaments? How much money is tied up in US defence contracts, and who benefits?
I received an email this morning from my dear friends Ann and Phelim. They have just interviewed Miranda Devine who recently wrote a whole book about the President’s son – Hunter Biden – and his involvement in the Ukraine.
Ann and Phelim emailed me:
Ukraine is the biggest story in the world right now, but why is no one talking about Hunter Biden?
Remember the New York Post’s bombshell story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, exposing the corruption and rot in the Biden family that was centered in Ukraine? Remember how it was censored by big tech?
Now that Biden is President, there’s a war in Ukraine and Russia has just sanctioned Hunter Biden. We think it’s time to revisit that story, which shows that the Bidens are entangled in a web of Eastern European corruption. No one in the mainstream media is covering this right now.
That’s why we brought Miranda Devine, New York Post columnist and author of The Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide, on the show today. She reminds us of those dirty secrets from Hunter’s laptop and exposes how they relate to the current situation in Ukraine.

The Hunter Biden story is more relevant than it has been since the election, and the fact that the corporate media won’t touch it with a ten-foot-pole is a perfect emblem of the death of honest journalism.
Ukraine has been a piggy bank and playground for US elites for years, including the Bidens and the Clintons. So-called ‘experts’ on Ukraine won’t talk about this, but they know that it’s true.
Ann begins the interview with Miranda mentioning a column she wrote years ago back in 2006, that was published in the Sydney Morning Herald on the same day Ann and Phelim flew into Australia. That trip and that associated publicity was organised by me all those years ago. It does seem like a lifetime ago. Their visit to Australia and the newspaper column was to promote Ann and Phelim’s very first movie ‘Mine Your Own Business’ that is still my favourite.
Update 28th March 2022
Just filing this here:
And if you want to watch Ann and Phelim’s first movie, that is still my favourite, I’ve just found it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wth_p4p0rfY
I so like the authenticity of it, and the twists and turns … how they end-up in South America with the Romanian.
And further, The New York Times have at last admitted the the Hunter Biden laptop story is true.
Allan Cox says
The war has a lot do with stopping bioweapons from being delivered against the Rus!
And here’s a good ten minute summary, too.
and more on Hunter and his laptop:
Tom Smith says
Once apon a time, Wikipedia contained a list of scientists who disagree with the carpetbagger’s consensus on global warming.
Jennifer, you are / were on the list.
The article was subsequently deleted by Wikipedia, but all this saved on the Web Archive.
Bill Hankin says
I’ll be frank. This is a bullish!t distraction from the main issue.
Russia under the dictatorial murderous rule of Putin, has just invaded neighbouring independent sovereign country – Ukraine.
That sovereign & independent country is currently defending itself against that invasion. And it is asking for all the outside help it can get to defend itself.
What Biden senior did there, or what Hunter Biden did there in past decades is frankly not relevant or important, compared the simple but murderous fact of Putin’s invasion.
Another fact for you to consider : nearly 4 million people, the elderly, women & children being forced to flee their homes & their homeland to escape being murdered by this War Criminal & his minions.
Further perhaps you should consider to what extent these friends of your overseas are peddling Russian propaganda
Jennifer Marohasy says
It might not be pleasant to watch Bill, but I know you care about the truth and this is only short:
So, this expert on geopolitics explained back in 2015:
“The West is leading Ukraine down the primrose path and the end result is that Ukraine is going to get wrecked …”
Why did we/The West do this?
I did once get to chat with Putin’s Environment advisor Andrei Illarionov. It was many years ago in New York at a conference. He couldn’t work out why The West was so enamoured with the idea of human-caused global warming and why we would prostitute/corrupt our historical temperature records to prove it.
And he explained to me in detail about the Kyoto Protocol and the relevance of everything being calculated from 1990 when both the UK and Germany were transitioning from coal. He suggested that Kyoto was all about geopolitics, with science and global warming the fig leaf. It was very clear that he (and by proxy I assumed Vladimir Putin) were totally sceptical of catastrophic human-caused global warming. And confused by all the virtue signalling in the West about this.
I do often wonder what we are defending now in The West. It is certainly not freedom of speech or the scientific method. Both have been junked by our institutions like CSIRO and the BoM, and the universities.
Mike Thurn says
I know almost exactly what the Biden crime syndicate has been up to in Ukraine. Their money laundering activities, along with many other well known identities go way back, as well as very recent.
For the doubters, ask yourselves ‘why the desperation to impeach Trump’ after his perfectly appropriate conversation with Zelenskyy? And to who does Zelenskyy really answer? I believe we are all going to be somewhat surprised.
Allan Cox says
Your perception of what is going on over ‘there’ is spot on, and was brilliantly illustrated in Oliver Stone’s ‘Ukraine on Fire’, which has since been ‘disappeared’ by Google and Amazon, but is now on Rumble, anyway.
Here’s an update that seems to confirm the war in UKR is more to do with the UKR:
Ian Thomson says
Well done Jen.
There are now reported to be 5,000 children released from traders, I believe from 16 different countries 5 now from USA. 67 were on one train, heading for Poland.
The Bidens both have a very apparent obsession with children and their ties to that trade may also turn up. As may some who are very loud about what is happening, who live closer to home and have clouds over them already.
As for the biolabs, at least 27 so far discovered, (with paperwork and materials, which is being combed through), they may well turn out to be worse that we can imagine.
Trump said last week that, “The virus came from Chy-na”. Yes it’s a town in Ukraine and Faichi & Co have ties emerging.
There have been two press releases so far on the findings there, listing diseases they were playing with including the zombie horror of horrors, airborne rabies.
Most relevant to us is the transfer of materials to a research facility in Melbourne. YES MELBOURNE Australia.
They have been working on racially specific attacks, (Slavs especially) and the use of wild vectors, like birds and bats, to make outbreaks seem natural.
How much Slavic blood now flows in Aussie veins ?
I read a Greek perspective yesterday, there is a large Greek population in Mariupol and they do talk to the rellies back in Greece and the writer stated that almost nobody there believed a word their Govt said on the subject.
Anyway enough for now. There are some very informative articles on the subject to be found on ‘The Richardson Post’, some written by a man called Howell Woltz, an American who lives in Poland.
Your friend Viv Forbes also contributes there
Bill Hankin says
Jen, I see also that you been spammed by Putinsta appeasers here.
Jen don’t use your blog for Russian propaganda by Putinista appeasers !
If ya do I’m gone from here !
Let’s be frank : Putin may in 2000 have been sceptical about ‘global warming’ etc.
But that still does not excuse him from being a mass murdering war criminal dictator
His war crime criminality goes back decades to Georgia, Chechyna.
His criminality also go back to poisoning various Russian citizens who fled Russia – think Polonium poisoning Jen ! It’s a bastard of a way to die !
So the sooner he is ‘gone’ the better for the world, for Russia, & Ukraine.
Ukraine is FREE people lead by a FREELY elected President. It’s fighting for it’s existence and it’s independence against a murdering Fascist monster named Putin with his armed Russian minions.
And Biden ? Who cares about Biden or his son ? They’re just Yankees doing Yankee stuff as always.
Trump was impeached to protect crooked Biden from investigation. The demorat side of politics in the US is literally a threat to the world. If Trump had not been cheated out of the 2020 election Putin would not have invaded Ukraine.
We know the elites visit Davos each year and promote the idea of a ‘Great Reset’. These few rich and powerful individuals that include Bill Gates and Prince Charles, openly promote the idea through their networks that ordinary folk should no longer aspire to own either a car or a home. The idea is that ordinary folk with ‘own nothing and be happier’.
They are the same small group who control both Presidents Biden and Zelensky, and part of their job seems to be regime change in Russia without a Third World War. At least not for the moment.
This same small group desperately wants you vaccinated regularly and to be anxious about everything, including climate change.
From today’s Epoch Times:
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky announced a measure that bans 11 opposition political parties, alleging they have ties to Russia, he announced in a Telegram video posted on March 20.
“Any activity of politicians aimed at splitting or collaborating will not succeed,” he said.
Zelensky also said that “wartime exposes quite well the paucity of personal ambitions of those who try to put their own ambitions” or “their own party or career above the interests of the state,” according to a translation.
The parties that have been banned, he said, include “Opposition Platform—For Life, Sharij’s Party, Nashi, Opposition Bloc, Left Opposition, Union of Left Forces, Derzhava, Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, Socialist Party of Ukraine, the Socialists, and Volodymyr Saldo’s Bloc,” according to Ukrinform.
The National Security Council agreed to suspend the parties, Ukrinform reported, citing Zelensky’s video address.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Justice has been told to immediately take measures to ban those political parties, he said. Zelensky didn’t provide evidence that linked the 11 opposition parties to the Russian government.
At the onset of the Feb. 24 invasion, Zelensky signed a measure that established martial law and general mobilization.
Zelensky said on March 20 that “activities by politicians aimed at discord and collaboration will not succeed,” adding that alleged links between Russia and “and some political structures, the activities of a number of political parties are suspended for the period of the martial law.”
The president also signed a decree that would combine all national TV channels into one platform, citing the martial law provision.
During an interview with CNN, Zelensky said he’s ready for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and claimed that should negotiations fail, it would lead to an escalation of the conflict.
“I think we have to use any format, any chance in order to have a possibility of negotiating, possibility of talking to Putin. But if these attempts fail, that would mean that this is a third World War,” he told the network on March 20.
But Alan Moran has an alternative view:
Faced with implacable opposition from the Senate, Sarah Bloom Raskin, President Biden’s pick for supervising banks within the Federal Reserve (Fed), has withdrawn her candidature. During the Obama administration, she was one of the Fed’s seven governors and a Treasury deputy secretary.
Her rejection by the Senate was a result of her expressed intent ‘to incentivise a rapid, orderly, and just transition from fossil fuels and other high-emission investments’.
Not so long ago, that opinion would have not been a barrier to the job – indeed her appointments under Obama faced little opposition. But such views became more controversial with Biden’s re-installation of Obama’s anti-oil and gas regulations and the consequent return of the US to becoming a net importer. The Ukrainian war brought home the serious strategic implications of impeding fossil fuel production and last week the swing
Senators, Democrat Joe Manchin and Republicans Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, pulled the plug on Raskin.
There have been few central bankers as woke as climate activist Mark Carney, the former Governor of the Bank of England, who is now with investment conglomerate Brookfield. At Brookfield, Carney joined fellow activist Mike Cannon-Brookes of Atlassian in bidding for AGL with a view to expediting the firm’s departure from fossil fuels.
Though Carney may have been a stand-out, most banking bureaucrats are infected with alarmist zeal and central banks are coordinating internationally to press their philosophy through the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
In this respect, Australia may have dodged a bullet with the departure from the Reserve Bank of Guy Debelle, who had been the heir-presumptive Governor. He was described as a ‘green energy crusader’ even by fellow hydrocarbon haters at the AFR. Debelle will now help Twiggy Forrest’s Fortesque tilt at windmills, postulate about hydrogen as a future fuel and trumpet pie-in-the-sky $210 billion schemes, like that linking Singapore with an Australian desert paved with solar panels.
Perhaps Debelle was pushed out of contention for the Reserve Bank’s top job or maybe he recognised a growing unease within governments about climate fanatics occupying high places.
The USA and EU between them have spent an estimated $5 trillion on renewable energy over the past 20 years (Australia has spent relatively more). Almost all of renewable energy installations have relied on the support of subsidies, and while the subsidies have savaged the economics of fossil fuel, its share of total energy use has fallen by just two per cent to 84 per cent.
The world has certainly changed since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Among other lessons, this has shown many politicians that calls for decarbonisation were luxuries that cannot be indulged in the dangerous world which Putin’s actions have revealed we inhabit.
In the UK, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, under pressure, is reneging on his 2021 green exhortations and walking, crab-like, towards permitting new oil and gas fields – even to allowing fracking for gas – and re-opening coal generators.
In this context, it is doubtful that the Bank of England Governor, Andrew Bailey, would today deliver a speech like that he gave in 20 November last year. In that speech Bailey outlined a range of further actions necessary to meet the net zero emissions goals of the Bank of England, goals that are broadly shared by all other democratic nations’ central banks. The Bank’s measures included ensuring that the 1,500 financial intermediaries that it regulates ‘hold capital against material climate-related financial risks’. The Governor foreshadowed a ‘wider supervisory toolkit’ to incentivise firms to take meaningful actions in support of climate transition, adding, ‘Where progress is insufficient and assurance or remediation is needed, the (Bank’s Prudential Regulatory Authority) will request clear plans and, where appropriate, exercise its powers,’ to ensure this is rectified.
Even if such thunderous admonitions will now be diluted, repairing the damage will be slow.
It will be slower still for Australia where, almost daily, Energy Minister Angus Taylor issues press releases that pontificate about how government action is securing the future of steel through renewable energy, increasing (subsidised) rooftop energy, causing firms to raise ‘the bar for corporate emissions accountability’, as well as providing additional handouts for hydrogen and emissions reductions. As if this were not bad enough, Taylor would correctly warn us that, if in May we have an ALP Government, the damaging policies would worsen.
Changing course for Australia is proving a more laborious process than in the rest of the world. But everywhere, the accumulation of central bank regulations, procedures, recruitments and policy directives leave a powerful residue that will continue to hamper the redirection of capital towards commercial energy. In doing so, central bank directives, alongside other similar policies, will leave western democracies less able to confront the dangerous world that recent events have revealed.
Garry Stannus says
So what do we make of:
‘Antarctica, Arctic undergo simultaneous freakish extreme heat’?
‘Earth’s poles are undergoing simultaneous freakish extreme heat with parts of Antarctica more than 70 degrees (40 degrees Celsius) warmer than average and areas of the Arctic more than 50 degrees (30 degrees Celsius) warmer than average.’
And the Great Barrier Reef is apparently experiencing widespread severe bleaching. I shall go see and film in a couple of weeks.
The annual mean temperatures from stations still measuring with mercury thermometers, and with really long records, indicated that the last two years were below average in Australia: https://jennifermarohasy.com/2022/03/australias-broken-temperature-record-part-3/ (Scroll to Chart 1.)
Continuing to file here.
So, Alan Moran thinks the war in Ukraine will be a wake up call and we will revert to energy supplies that provide reliable base load.
But I’m not so sure, quoting Cameron McNab:
“But we have hit a new era of not just crafting a politically advantageous narrative, but instead one that is cynically deceitful. As I was scrolling through the latest headlines, I was stupidly hopeful when I read the following World Oil headline: Biden administration says oil leasing to resume on federal land. Oh my God, did reality finally hit Slow Joe in the head or did polling finally push him to do the right thing? Silly me. Neither answer is true. Instead, a recent court battle has allowed the Biden Administration to say they will resume drilling for oil and gas on federal lands, while leaving out the fact that this new ruling will make it harder and more costly to do so. This administration is blatantly calculating the “social cost” of greenhouse gas emissions, while ignoring the fact that those calculations are killing people.
In a nutshell, during the Obama years, the government imposed a fee to oil companies of $50 per ton of greenhouse gas emissions. Under the Trump administration, the government lowered it to $10 per ton, to increase production. In the Obama 2.0 era, Biden sought to return to the higher surcharge which pissed a lot of Republican-led states to file court challenges. A Louisiana federal judge blocked the new calculation methods and this past week, a federal court ruled in the government’s favor.
“With this ruling, the Department continues its planning for responsible oil and gas development on America’s public lands and waters,” Interior Department spokeswoman Melissa Schwartz said in an email. “Calculating the social cost of greenhouse gas emissions provides important information that has been part of the foundation of the work the Interior Department has undertaken over the past year.”
There, she said it out loud. The “social cost” of greenhouse gas emissions is more important than the cost of dinner on your table. In fact, the “social cost” of greenhouse gas emissions is more important than putting gas in your tank, your retirement plans, or starving people around the world.
“Specifically, the Department is committed to ensuring its programs account for climate impacts, provide a fair return to taxpayers, discourage speculation, hold operators responsible for remediation, and more fully include communities, Tribal, state and local governments in decision-making,” the agency said.
The Biden Administration is going to sample this “resume drilling for oil and gas on federal lands” headline like a DJ in the heart of Detroit’s 8 Mile. I can almost hear the record scratch across the vinyl with each new talking head dutifully regurgitating the mantra.
As Forbes pointed out on Friday, the recent high cost of oil prices is partly by design. The Administration has a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, full stop. [end quote]
>” … Alan Moran thinks the war in Ukraine will be a wake up call and we will revert to energy supplies that provide reliable base load” [quote from Jennifer’s comment above]
While I do admire Alan’s indefatigible energy, I’m afraid his optimism continually prevents him from acknowledging that we aren’t in Kansas anymore.
We see the US/Aus/EU’s mock panic about energy supply, especially in 6 months time when stockpiling for the northern hemisphere winter becomes needed. Oh, re-open the coal mines, re-open fracking for shale oil, build more nuclear generators … blah blah
These people will RENEGE. They *want* reduced living standards. And they will win, because the large majority of the middle-class populations will not resist the thuggish police squads following covert electronic surveillance – covid showed that without any ambivalence. Trudeau demonstrated just how effective this is.
Russia has invaded Ukraine.
Russia has laid siege to to the city of Mariupol
Russia is shelling with artilary & shooting missiles into civilian areas and non military areas where civilians are sheltering
Russia has forced 3 million Ukrainians to flee to other countries and most of these refugees are women & children
Yes when I say on Facebook “The Russians are murdering barbarians” Facebook suspends me for 30 days !
Well Fuck Facebook !
And also the blind Putinista appeasers here !
Glen MICHEL says
Poor Bill. Ukraine deposed Yanukovcych in a coup and calls that country Democratic. Maybe he would addr6the battles in Iraq like Fallujah where US forces used artillery with depleted uranium on urban areas – not to mention air strikes which hit civilian infrastructure. Some estimates of 8000 dead. C’est le guerre eh Bill.
Glen MICHEL says
If I appear to be invidious so be it but in my view Russia was pushed into acting ,regrettable it all is. There is much to come out but with east coast Neo-Cons running this agenda it will be suppressed. Things are rotten and Bill has fallen for the trash put out by the likes of Sheridan and Bolt and the get Russia mob. Good on you Jen.
As Americans learn about the reality and depth of the “deep state” corruption and cover-up of Biden Ukraine money scamming, the more annoyed we are getting
Trump was impeached for merely talking about Biden-Ukraine corruption. The Hunter Biden laptop, which explicitly shows Biden Ukraine corruption, was available at the impeachment but hidden away.
We are in big trouble.
Ww3 to hide a bit of personal bribe taking.
Pointing out that Zelensky is a puppet of a corrupt American President is not supporting the kleptocratc murderous thug, Putin. Rather, it is to raise the question of what are we risking ww3 for: Freedom or Biden mney laundering. Pointing out the fact that there was a series of apparently repurposed operational biowar decommissioning labs funded by the US long after they should have been shut down is not supporting Putin.
So on a lighter point, I was standing in a long slow line and 2 democrats in the line were talking loud so everyone had to listen. They were talking about how wonderful Biden is for America. One told the other, “Biden is a gift from God!”
The person next to me in line turned around and asked them, “Why? Did God run out of locusts?”
Bill Hankin, you said you were leaving, why are you still here.. If you can’t be bothered to read outside the West’s propaganda about Russia and Putin, you will never see the truth.
Just look up Russians With Attitude or TheSaker, or Spriter99880, and ignore the pro-Russian propaganda while you see the deconstruction of the West’s faked news.
Today, the bodies spread down both sides of a road in Bucha.. Blame The Russians!! Hate Putin!! except.. the Russians were out by the end of March, the movie only turns up now. The bodies are spread down both sides of the road so you can neatly drive between them, so what were all the people doing when they were shot? Shot, but no blood?? All these bodies looking like they were tossed off the back of a truck having been shot long before so there is no puddle of blood under them…
Why would the Russians do this on their way out? They have no incentive to do it at all, and in fact a dis-incentive as the West would make great propaganda from it!
Why would the Ukies do it? Well, they have a double incentive, to make more propaganda for the West to hate Putin with, and to get rid of people they don’t like without getting blamed.
You have been thoroughly taken in by the Western propaganda! America has spent 70years trying to crush Russia, and they are completely amoral about how they go about it. This is just one more chapter. Hopefully Russia and China can save us from the suicide we’re involved in as we kill our civilisation for the Great Reset. You will own nothing and use extra pullovers and candles, while the Russians burn coal and oil living a great life!
