Exporting U.S. LNG to Friend and Foe Alike: Against the Backdrop of a Personal Struggle Between Biden and Trump
I believe the United States’ energy policy is being driven by Hunter Biden’s laptop, former intel agents, and slick-n-smooth lawyers deep inside U.S. LNG projects. Hunter landed on Burisma’s energy board in April 2014 specifically for crisis management advisement. Hunter advised on hiring lawyer Heather King for Ukraine’s crisis, starting at $100,000.  During that same span of time, Hunter reconnected with Bill “Marsden” Miller, a Louisiana lawyer/businessman convicted in 1987 of mail fraud regarding an oil company (later overturned).[2, 3, 4, 5] Miller had a secretive deal for Hunter: “[Chinese friends] wish to invest in the oil and gas business in the US.”[6,7]
Hunter didn’t act on U.S. LNG until the spring of 2017 when CEFC’s Beijing boss Chairman Ye Jianming came calling. Ye’s associates, namely, X. Rick Niu, Patrick Ho, Gongwen Dong, Mervyn Yan, and JiaQi Bao became Hunter’s CCP deal contacts.[8,10,11] Through Hudson West III/Owasco LLC., the goal was to “source and secure” deals starting with the Rosneft Trade Group, then Monkey Island LNG, but shifted towards two present-day LNG export projects, Magnolia and Texas LNG. Both were eagerly recommended by JiaQi Bao.
JiaQi Bao, the sly CCP assistant to Hunter Biden, sent this email: “Hunter as Ambassador of U. S. LNG + the State of Louisiana/Gulf State.”  Bao provided pitch decks for Hunter regarding Magnolia and Texas in Oct/Nov 2017. Then, in January 2018, Bao provided her financial contacts on such deals: Natixis and HSBC.
Meanwhile, Bob Fenet, another Louisiana lawyer, courted Jim Biden, on exporting LNG to China, using Biden-friendly Cheniere executives to make that happen: “[W]e will have the capacity to supply 13 million metric tons per annum of LNG to the Port in China…If your client will purchase a twenty-five-year stream of LNG, I can build the plant for $12 billion dollars.… You will own 50 percent of the LNG plant.”[15,18,35]
In November 2017, a major roadblock stalled all these deals: Donald Trump’s DOJ & FBI. Surprisingly, the FBI arrested Patrick Ho , chasing away the numerous lawyers (at least 6) Hunter involved in vetting or pitching these LNG projects from mid-town Manhattan down to the Louisiana Bayou. Hunter was embroiled in acquiring legal representation for Ho while also achieving the CCP LNG deal objectives.
Enter Glenfarne Group. In July 2018, CEO Brendan Duval receive $700,000,000 in debt financing via French investment bank Natixis along with Apollo and Mitsui for its new subsidiary, EnfraGen.[21,31] Glenfarne acquired control of Texas LNG in the latter half of 2019.[29,30]
In May 2020, Magnolia LNG changed hands in a whirlwind of interesting maneuvers, involving the investment capital shortfall of the former owner, LNG Limited, through First Wall Street Capital, a bid made by Global Energy Megatrend, and then Glenfarne, all over the course of three months against the crisis backdrop of COVID-19.
First Wall Street Capital is advised by former CIA director R. James Woolsey and Federal Judge Eugene Sullivan. Judge Sullivan met privately with Hunter Biden in 2016 alongside former FBI director Louis Freeh. Later, Freeh provided a $100,000 donation to a private Biden trust. First Wall Street pulled Australian LNG Limited financing on Magnolia LNG, even after LNG Limited found a buyer for $75 million out of Singapore. [23,24] Instead, Bill Miller, of Global Energy Megatrend (and Hunter’s friend from 2014) put in a $2.25 million bid on Magnolia, but then balked at those terms. Glenfarne swoops in with a $2M offer.
First Wall Street Capital shares the same location (and floor) as Starr Insurance Companies: 399 Park Avenue, Floor 2. X. Rick Nui is the CEO of Starr and provided the 240-page CEFC Joint Venture plan, “Project White Light,” of CEFC’s Chairman Ye Jianming. This White Light drove Hunter, Jim, and their lesser associates, Tony Bobulinski, to move Heaven and Earth for their anticipated payouts agreed to, and received in summer 2017, and thereafter through entities Cathay Bank and Wells Fargo.
On September 10, 2020, Time Magazine published a 5,000-word article discussing how Trump’s administration sought to provide LNG to Ukraine through Poland for future sale into the European Union, but more importantly, to Time: “[Rick Perry] was among the officials, known as the ‘three amigos,’ who ran a shadow foreign policy in Ukraine on Trump’s behalf. Their aim, according to the findings of the impeachment inquiry in the House, was to embarrass Trump’s main political rival, Joe Biden.”
But these Ukrainian conflicts surrounding former Secretary Perry (and his stock holdings in Energy Transfer) brought back, yet again, Hunter Biden’s fulsome, Fosun friend: Bill Miller through his position as President of Louisiana Natural Gas Exports to hijack any Ukrainian deal made in 2020.[25, 26] Miller’s brother-in-law is Robert Bensh. Bensh spent two decades on gas deals in Ukraine with all their corrupt administrations.[33,34,38,39] Bensh knows Glenfarne’s Brendan Duval – liking and commenting on Glenfarne’s presentations made to U.S. Senators Manchin and Cassidy at the Transatlantic Energy Security Forum regarding Ukraine.
Does U.S. energy policy function for a U.S. Citizen’s benefit, or: merely the whims (and bank deposits made) to the current President’s son through that son’s business LLCs?[41,42] Does U.S. policy just enable a larger agenda for either Chinese benefit, or to keep Ukrainian interests satiated with billions now, and LNG exports, later? The answer to these queries requires asking more questions of an array of people through processes tied to significant legal jeopardy. The will to do so appears lacking by officials who swore a legal oath to the American Constitution to protect all citizens against their enemies. But what is the value of that oath – if people stand by and do nothing to garner these important answers for the public?
One of our country’s most important freedoms is that of free speech.
