The Intercept reports that Hunter Biden invested in a Chinese fund that fueled China's intrusive surveillance of its Muslim population.

The son of the former vice president and Democratic presidential frontrunner used his personal wealth to sustain the development of an app that provides China's authoritarian government with information monitoring the religious activity, blood type, and energy consumption of millions of its citizens.

The app relies heavily on facial recognition software supplied by Face++, a division of the Chinese startup Megvii, a relationship that sparked questions in the press for Megvii investors. One of the most prominent of these investors is Alibaba Group Holding, which was co-founded by Jack Ma, the wealthiest Chinese billionaire and an icon for the country’s image of entrepreneurship.

The flurry of media reports this week about Face++, Ma, and the role of the private sector in building China’s increasingly sprawling surveillance state, however, left out another prominent investor in the company: Hunter Biden.

The son of the former Vice President Joe Biden has spent much of the last decade building overseas investments and business deals, arrangements that could complicate his father’s bid for the presidency by posing an array of potential conflicts of interest.

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign did not respond to a request for comment.)

So, Biden is running to keep Jr. out of jail.
Kinda like Hillary had to be the nominee to keep herself out of jail.
Democrats seem to have a common denominator.
Pipeline and Railroad across the Berring Strait: Bye bye middle east quagmires. Bye bye 23ft/gal super tankers polluting the world. Add a highway to that. Then we can drive to Asia, Europe and Africa. Road trip heaven!
