At the International Association of Fire Fighters 51st Convention in Philadelphia on Wednesday, Biden stoked passive-aggressive resentment of the 1 percenters. “The wealthy,” he sniveled. “God bless ‘em,” he snarked. “I wish my kids would become wealthy,” he sighed before railing against tax relief for all those evil, privileged rich people earning more than $250,000 a year.
His three children with wife Dr. Jill Biden all appear to be, well, doing just fine. Way more than just fine.
Daughter Ashley, a social worker married to an otolaryngologist/plastic surgeon at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia. Along the way, Ashley’s husband also racked up a Ph.D. and snagged a slot as an assistant professor of otolaryngology/head and neck surgery and as a director of the Herbert Kean Center for Facial Aesthetics.
Oldest son Beau is the current attorney general of Delaware, a former Justice Department official and federal prosecutor, a former partner in the Wilmington law firm Bifferato, Gentilotti, Biden and Balick, and a career beneficiary of the Biden dynasty.
Younger son Hunter, well-heeled and wildly successful lobbyist/lawyer offspring. Hunter Biden now fronts Eudora Global, “a uniquely organized growth and acquisition firm focused on purchasing and accelerating the development of high potential enterprises in industries that meet its selective investment profile.” He co-founded the firm with Jeffrey Cooper. Cooper helped build one of the biggest asbestos litigation firms in the country. SimmonsCooper, based in Madison County, Ill., has donated a whopping $196,050 to the senior Biden’s campaigns since 2003, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics in Washington, D.C. In that same time frame, the firm poured $6.5 million into lobbying against a key tort reform bill — which Sen. Biden worked hard to defeat. Cooper also contributed to Beau Biden’s first attorney general campaign and paid Beau for legal work on Delaware asbestos litigation cases.
Hunter Biden was previously a top official at PARADIGM Global Advisors, a hedge fund holding company founded with Vice President Biden’s brother, James, and marketed by convicted finance fraudster Allen Stanford. Cooper chipped in $2 million for the ill-fated venture, which went down in flames amid nasty fraud lawsuits.
Before all that, Hunter Biden was a senior vice president at MBNA America Bank, one of his dad’s wealthiest corporate campaign donors. An MBNA bank official helped facilitate an eyebrow-raising real estate deal for Daddy Biden that paved the way for the acquisition of a custom-built house in Delaware’s ritziest Chateau Country neighborhood. While raking in consultant payments at MBNA, Hunter Biden also served as a founding partner in D.C. lobbying shop Oldaker, Biden and Belair. SOURCE—human events, malkin
