Francis "Frank" W. Biden, younger brother of President Joe Biden, has boasted at least twice about the sway he has with his powerful sibling, Breitbart reported. He's publicly made these claims despite holding no official position in the administration.
The younger Biden first made the claim shortly after his brother was elected to the highest office in America. Despite having no expertise or training in the medical field, Frank Biden was invited to give a speech for health technology firm BioSig Technologies at a dinner in Boston in 2021.
He told his audience he had "the bully pulpit...as a result of the privilege of being associated with my brother Joey." Frank Biden also reportedly promised to "do everything in my power to support you to get the job done, to get federal dollars to your research."
This October, Frank Biden again spoke on behalf of BioSig Technologies. He was the keynote speaker at the conference in Venice, Italy, to discuss "the future of global healthcare."
He spoke about the elder Biden's "Cancer Moonshot" initiative that promised to accelerate the search for a cure. He also provided advice for lobbying the federal government for more favorable Medicare reimbursement.
Frank Biden has been cagey about his relationship with BioSig Technologies. At one point, he claimed to have been employed by the company but then changed his story to just helping out only with "informal sales assistance."
He never disclosed who paid for the trip to Venice, but Frank Biden did not finance it himself. This obvious influence peddling is not surprising coming from a member of the Biden family, of course.
Hunter Biden, the president's son, and Frank Biden's nephew has made a cottage industry off of it. Despite having no expertise, knowledge, or experience, Hunter Biden secured a gig at Ukrainian energy company Burisma for some $83,000 a month.
Perhaps it was just a coincidence that in 2015, Joe Biden turned the screws on the Ukrainian government on behalf of Burisma. The then-vice president said he'd withdraw a $1 billion loan if it didn't back off a probe, Fox News reported.
The country was still reeling from a war with Russia in 2014 and was desperate for help. "I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion," Joe Biden boasted at a Council on Foreign Relations event in 2018, recounting his conversation with Ukraine's then-President Petro Poroshenko.
"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,'" Joe Biden claimed.
The matter was apparently dropped. However, another coincidence came in 2017 after Joe Biden's term as vice president came to an end and Burisma slashed Hunter Biden's salary by half.
Time may be up for the Bidens' schemes, however. House Oversight Committee chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has announced a probe into the family using bank records to follow the money.
It appears that both the president's son and brother were riding Joe Biden's political coattails. The Bidens, including Joe Biden, are all parasites -- and the host is, unfortunately, the hardworking American taxpayers.
