This is the kind of guy Joe Biden is

EXCLUSIVE: Jill Biden’s Ex-Husband Exposes Joe’s Adulterous Affair, Lies, And Campaign Bribery

New Book Will Reveal Massive New Details Before The Election

Patrick Howley by PATRICK HOWLEY   August 12, 2020

Jill Biden’s ex-husband Bill Stevenson has completed an autobiographical book manuscript to be published before November’s election in which he devotes 80 pages to new bombshell details about Joe and Jill Biden, NATIONAL FILE has exclusively learned. The book claims that Joe and Jill began their romance in Delaware earlier than they have publicly stated, while Jill was still married to Stevenson, and that their affair led Stevenson to break up his marriage to Jill.

“The affair between Joe Biden and my ex-wife Jill started in 1974 when we were still married, not in 1975 as the Biden official story claims,” Bill Stevenson exclusively tells NATIONAL FILE. Stevenson noted that both he and Jill knew Joe Biden even earlier than that, having helped him with his 1972 Senate campaign. Bill Stevenson donated money to the Biden 1972 campaign. A millionaire businessman who donated car defibrillators to the NYPD, Stevenson now wants to get the truth out about Joe Biden’s stunning past misdeeds.

Bill Stevenson also blows the whistle on a bribery scheme in which Joe’s brother Frank took $3,000 from Stevenson ahead of Biden’s first Senate race to hand to the boss of the teamsters union to ensure that copies of the Wilmington News Journal, which endorsed Biden’s Republican incumbent opponent J. Caleb Boggs, were delivered three days late — after the polls had already closed. Shortly after the election, Joe Biden’s first wife Neilia died in a car crash. Joe Biden has claimed as recently as 2007 that the truck driver in the crash “drank his lunch,” but the late driver Curtis C. Dunn’s daughter disputed that her father was drunk and successfully asked Biden to apologize to her personally for the false claim. Apparently, the Dunn family has reached out to Mr. Stevenson but Stevenson refrained from discussing the crash at this time.

Joe Biden has a close friendship with John Cochran, the former CEO of the Wilmington, Delaware-based credit card company MBNA, which was absorbed by Bank of America in 2006. Cochran purchased Biden’s Wilmington-area house from Biden in 1996 for $1.2 million. Cochran now chairs the University of Delaware Board of Trustees, where he is fighting to keep Biden’s records stored at the university from coming out in the public as concerned parties try to find information in the records pertaining to Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Biden of sexual assault.

ILLICIT LOVERS

According to the Bidens’ official story, Joe first noticed Jill as a model in an advertisement and had his brother Frank fix him up on a blind date with her in March 1975, after Jill had already separated from Stevenson. In 1977, The Morning News in Wilmington, Delaware quoted Joe Biden as saying of his relationship with Jill, “It’ll be three years come March.” Thus, Joe Biden was claiming that the pair met in March 1975, as has been widely reported. Joe said, “My two brothers and sister were sitting around the house with me, all of them waiting to go out on a triple date. I said I’d like to go, but I didn’t know who to ask. Frank popped up that he knew this girl he had met at the university, so why didn’t I call her?” The Morning News reported that “And Jill Tracy was amenable to a blind date, which was to consist of a snack and a movie in Chadds Ford and Concordville, Pa, respectively.”

In August 2008, New York Times reporter Katharine Q. Seelye reported: “Joe Biden has said that he first saw pictures of Jill Jacobs in March 1975 in an advertisement for a local park in Wilmington, Del. The young blonde caught his eye. She was beautiful — you might call her drop-dead gorgeous. That night, his brother, Frank, told him he had the number of a young woman that the senator would like, mainly because she did not like politics. Biden called her the next day and asked her out, for that very night. She was busy. Biden persisted. He was in town for only one night. Couldn’t she change her plans? She did, finally. And when Biden arrived to pick her up, she turned out to be the woman in the advertisement.”

Stevenson and Jill were divorced in May 1975 and Joe and Jill married in June 1977 in New York City at the United Nations chapel. But now Stevenson is calling that story a fabrication.

Multiple inside political sources in Delaware who were active during the 1970’s told NATIONAL FILE that Joe Biden began his affair with Jill as early as 1974, when she was still known as Jill Stevenson, confirming Bill Stevenson’s version of events. The illicit lovers would often rendezvous at a Limestone Road Route 7 gas station called Midway Golf, according to a former Midway employee.

Bill Stevenson, who owned The Stone Balloon Tavern and Concert Hall, bought his wife Jill a brown Corvette as a gift. In 1974, an accident occurred when Joe Biden, who was driving the Corvette with Jill inside, backed into another motorists’ vehicle. Joe Biden initially promised to cover the cost of the accident but Bill Stevenson ended up paying the $650 bill.

When Stevenson confronted wife Jill about being in the car with Biden, Jill’s answer was not satisfactory to Stevenson. Stevenson said that he could not live with Jill anymore so he asked her to leave the house and they later divorced. Stevenson felt that the betrayal by Joe Biden was even worse than the betrayal by his wife, considering Stevenson’s close friendship with Biden and his financial contributions to the upstart politician. In their divorce, Jill tried to get half of Stevenson’s assets but the judge ruled in favor of Stevenson.

Shortly thereafter, Joe Biden’s brother Frank Biden approached Stevenson and suggested that he get out of town because he was now a liability to Joe Biden’s political career.

Years later, Bill Stevenson attended a horse race at the invitation of MBNA credit card company founder Charles Cawley, who was with Biden at the race. Biden saw Stevenson and simply turned away and made a disparaging remark about Stevenson to Cawley.

Jill Biden admitted in her book Where The Light Enters that she attended Joe Biden’s 1972 victory party with Bill Stevenson, where Jill met Joe’s first wife Neilia, but the Biden official story still maintains that they did not begin dating until 1975.

Bill Stevenson’s book will undoubtedly make major waves during the 2020 presidential election. NATIONAL FILE will continue reporting details regarding Joe Biden’s history in the state of Delaware, based on firsthand accounts by Delaware residents who knew Joe Biden well. A new personal interview with Stevenson is being conducted and will be published in early September.

Here’s how the government could fund reparations for descendants of slaves,...

KEY POINTS

A movement supporting reparations as a way to make amends for the atrocities of slavery and to reduce the persistent wealth gap is gaining momentum.
One hundred and forty-two members of Congress support H.R. 40, the bill to study reparations.
William Darity, professor of public policy at Duke University, estimates a concrete program could cost the U.S. government between $10 trillion and $12 trillion.

Reparations for slavery has been fiercely discussed in the United States since Union Army Gen.

The pot calls the kettle black

Donald Trump has met his match with Howard Stern in battle of provocateurs

Throughout a long and unpredictable career, one that’s included television stardom, bestselling authorship, inestimable wealth and celebrity that defies categorization, the conventional wisdom has long held: One day he will go too far, say something unforgivable — too vulgar, sexist or crude — and be fired or forced to resign.
Who is it: Donald Trump or Howard Stern?
It’s been amazing to hear Stern unleash his considerable

Roe v. Wade is now up in the air

In March 2020, the Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Louisiana’s new abortion law, which requires that physicians doing abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.
Under the leadership of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, an amicus—”friend of the court”—brief supporting the law was just filed, signed by 207 members of Congress, 39 senators, and 168 House members.
A press release from Scalise summarizes the arguments made and lists a number of conservative organizations supporting the brief, one of which is my organization—the Center for Urban Renewal and Education.
What makes this filing particularly interesting is not just the sheer volume of congressional signatories—almost 40% of the Senate and House combined—it’s also the fact that it goes further than just arguing support for the constitutionality of the Louisiana law

Changing Times, Timeless Truths


December 21, 2019

By CHRISTOPHER MANION
In 1919 my father was mustered out of the Army after World War One. That was a pivotal year for millions of young men. They were making decisions about their own future as well as that of their country. Dad was making plans too. Years later, he remarked that, as he had surveyed the America of 1919, the most respected members of the community seemed to be the teacher, the doctor, the lawyer, and the priest.
At this time of year, folks often reminisce about how things were when they were kids — or when their grandparents were. A century ago, broadcast radio was in its infancy. So too were automobiles, airplanes, even electricity. Yet, teachers, doctors, lawyers, and priests have been around for a long time — for millennia, in fact. One would think that, given the disruptive change in the realm of material progress, those professions that had been so

L Cars made in China? Another decision made by short-sighted idiots

CTA wants answers from Chinese L car manufacturer after NBC report on child labor
The network found child-mined minerals in Madagascar ‘end up in products’ sold by companies including CRRC, which has a $1.3B deal to produce new trains for Chicago.

CTA officials have asked the Chinese manufacturer of new L cars coming to Chicago for answers about the materials it’s using after NBC News reported children as young as 4 are mining minerals in Africa that might be used in their production.

The TV network reported Nov. 18 that children from impoverished families in Madagascar are paid a pittance to burrow underground in dangerous conditions to find and claw out mica, a group of minerals used in electronics and numerous consumer products.

The mica goes to Chinese companies that “turn the mineral shards into component parts that end up in products sold by such companies as Panasonic, Electrolock and CRRC, a Chinese government-owned rail equipment manufacturer that has signed deals to produce trains for Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston,” according to the report.

The CTA has a $1.3 billion contract with CRRC subsidiary CRRC Sifang America to build L cars.

“We’ve asked CRRC to provide us with more detailed information on their supply chain for the new 7000 Series railcars that they’re building for us . . . their material providers and the sources their providers use,” CTA spokesman Brian Steele said. “We are doing so due to our concerns” spurred by the “media coverage.”

Steele said the agency was unaware of the allegations until being contacted by a reporter.

The NBC report described children mining mica in Madagascar, an island nation of more than 25 million, as “an underground army of little laborers who go largely unseen in a country famous for its lush forests, vanilla crop and lemur population.”

Asked about the report, Dave Smolensky, a spokesman in Chicago for CRRC Sifang America, says the company “expressly prohibits the use of child labor in the manufacture of any of the components used in the assembly of the railcars we build. The majority of components used in the production of our railcars are sourced from U.S. suppliers. We expect all our suppliers to treat their workers with dignity, respect and responsible employment practices.”NBC News reported children mining mica in Madagascar, with the mineral making its way into U.S. products.

Following a competitive-bidding process, the CTA awarded the contract in 2016 to CRRC Sifang America, a subsidiary of China’s government-owned CRRC Corporation Ltd., with an option for 846 new L cars at a total cost of about $1.3 billion, according to Steele. It so far has tapped CRRC to build 400 cars at a cost of around $632 million, he said.

The shells of the trains are made in China using Chinese steel, according to the CTA.

They are shipped to a 380,000-square-foot plant the company built at 135th Street and Torrence Avenue on the Southeast Side where workers assemble the cars, adding wheels, communications and propulsion equipment and other electronic gear.

Steele said 70% of the components “are coming from U.S. sources,” and some of the materials are from Germany and Canada.

Ten prototype L cars are being made now, Steele said. Starting next year, they’re to be tested in “non-revenue” service for about a year. All 400 are to be delivered by early 2024. The new model is slated to replace older L cars.

Mica is used in a wide range of products because it doesn’t conduct electricity and is resistant to heat and remains stable in extreme temperatures.

If you are in the market for a good used car........

CHICAGO (CBS) — Buyers say they have gone to an auto auction in south suburban Harvey to get a used car for a good price – only to get ripped off by the seller.

CBS 2 Investigator Dorothy Tucker took undercover cameras inside to expose the operation. She found a guy there selling cars who we’ve run into before.

Tyronae Atkins hoped to get a sweet deal on her first car. She struggled to save money all summer.

“It was a lot of hard work and dedication. Had to stop going out with friends, sacrifice things,” she said.

She thought she found a bargain at the First Marshall Auto Auction in Harvey.

“An ‘07 black Nissan Maxima. I was like, yeah, that’s the car. They were like, alright, we’ll give it to
