Secret Service pays $30k/month to rent mansion near Hunter Biden’s $20k/month mansion

Hunter Biden is living lavishly in Malibu, California; a lifestyle taxpayers are helping him maintain. Sources told ABC News that Hunter’s “Secret Service detail protecting the president’s controversial son has been paying more than $30,000 a month to rent out a swanky Malibu, California, mansion for nearly a year.”

The mansion was selected in order for the Secret Service to be as close to Hunter so as to provide him with protective detail. The nearby mansion that Hunter rents costs $20,000 per month, according to property listings.

Retired senior Secret Service agent Don Mihalek, who is also an ABC News contributor, said the arrangement is “the cost of doing business for the Secret Service,” adding that under the federal law, the agency has a mandated protective responsibility for the president, the first family, and anybody else the president designates for protection.

“Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value,” Mihalek said, noting that the agency is also renting out properties to protect President Joe Biden’s residences in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

“This isn’t new,” Mihalek said. “The Service has had to do this in past administrations, and unfortunately, the housing market right now has driven the prices up substantially.”

A Secret Service representative said in response to ABC’s request for comment, “Due to the need to maintain operational security, the U.S. Secret Service does not comment on the means, methods, or resources used to conduct our protective operations.”

    So, now the Secret Service is yet ANOTHER government agency that claims to answer to nobody, especially not the voters, because they are “secret”!?!
    There is just no transparency in government anymore. (sigh)

    Makes me sick to my stomach to know that my tax dollars are going to protect Hunter. He needs to answer for his involvement with Ukraine and ultimately, who else is involved.

    Does a Biden family member, a large Democratic party contributor, Democratic politician, family or organization own this rented property?

    Hunter belongs in prison, not in a mansion. I don’t want to pay taxes to subsidize criminals.

With gas prices at record highs, Biden CANCELS gas lease

“We did it, Joe” memes of Vice President Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are popping up all over social media alongside individuals photographs of the horrendously high prices they have to pay at the gas pump to fill their cars.

Biden has no intention of fixing it, as proven by the administration’s recent decision to actually cancel an oil and gas lease win the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

This is nothing short of purposeful destruction of America. The Interior Department told The New York Post that the Cook Inlet lease sale would not move forward because of a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area.”

In the Gulf of Mexico, the department canceled two lease sales, citing “conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed sales.”

The timing is outrageous, considering “as of Thursday morning, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas stood at $4.418, according to AAA — the highest on record and $1.41 higher than at this time last year.”

Additionally, the scenario also displays just how much federal judges tend to completely disagree with his actions. “Biden imposed a moratorium on the sale of new leases one week after his inauguration, but the order was later blocked by a Louisiana federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction to 13 states that claimed they would suffer ‘irreparable injury’ from the White House move” writes The Post.

At least federal judges are watching out to keep our country afloat, let along thriving, considering our own President and Vice President will not.

Republicans and energy industry representatives are fuming over the decision. “Yesterday, Americans paid the highest price for gasoline in history,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). “At the same time Biden just canceled our largest pending American oil & gas lease sale.”

“Gas prices are at a record high, and Biden just canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska and the Gulf,” added Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Joe Biden is directly responsible for the high cost of gas.”

“It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands

“The President has spoken about the need for additional supplies in the market, but his administration has failed to take action to match that rhetoric,” Frank Macchairola of the American Petroleum Institute told CBS News, calling the cancellations “another example of the administration’s lack of commitment to oil and gas development in the US.”

“In the kind of price environment that we’re seeing, there are negative consequences to shutting off oil and gas development, both politically and practically,” he added.

If the administration had moved forward with the Alaskan lease, it would have covered more than 1 million acres, according to The Hill.
