Hunter Biden has received extensive media coverage of his involvement with Ukraine’s corrupt Burisma and his Rosemont Seneca Technology Partner’s investment in Metabiota, helping to fund and organize the clandestine Ukraine Biolabs. However, the deep-state players that aided and abetted In Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian schemes have received little or no attention. So let’s deep dive into Hunter Biden’s deep state connections, which consists of three central casting characters specializing in statecraft.
Former NATO Commander Gen. Wesley Clark
Wesley Clark is a retired U.S. general four-star general and the former Supreme NATO Allied Commander. Unbeknownst to the general public, he served as strategic business development advisor for Rosemont Seneca Technology Partner. He can run but can’t hide from the Wayback Machine.
General Clark is also a long-term director of the hawkish Atlantic Council, and his expertise is Ukraine geopolitics. The Atlantic Council is a notorious Washington D. C. think tank that is NATO-centric. Because of Clark’s global stature and connections, one can reasonably assume his fingerprints are on Rosemont Seneca Technology’s investment in Metabiota’s Ukraine Biolabs and may have helped Metabiota secure tens of millions in U.S. Department of Defense contracts for Ukrainian Biolabs.
Blue Star Strategies
Attorney Karen Tramontano is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Washington-based Blue Star Strategies, LLC. She was the former deputy chief of staff for the Clinton administration. Her firm, Blue Star, illegally lobbied and failed to register as a foreign agent on behalf of Burisma Holdings. At the same time, Hunter served on the Burisma Board. It was an attempt to burnish Burisma’s reputation after facing allegations of corruption.
The only lobby registration found is a filing where Blue Star lobbied on behalf of the Ukrainian government. Only recently, Tramontano registered as Burisma Oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky’s foreign agent in May 2022.
Blue Star arranged the partnership and contributions between Burisma and the Atlantic Council. It also helped to schedule forums where Burisma officials spoke as panelists.
Sally Painter is the other co-founder of Blue Star. She has deep-state credentials. Painter is a long-term director of the Atlantic Council, the U.S. Committee on NATO member, and the left-leaning think tank, the Truman National Security Project board. She served with Hunter Biden and Jake Sullivan on Truman’s board. Sullivan is currently serving as National Security Director for the Biden Administration.
From 2013-2016, Jake Sullivan served as Vice President Biden’s national security adviser. He was deeply involved with Victoria Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State, in helping to orchestrate the 2014 Ukrainian Maidan revolution.
Painter, like her partner recently registered as a foreign agent for Burisma Oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky.
These three deep-state players deserve to be in the skullduggery hall of shame. Their involvement has helped to destabilize Ukraine leading to the Russian\Ukrainian conflict.

This is why I am not optimistic about ever stopping the war-mongers and deep-state in Washington DC
Its a self-reinforcing, self-perpetuating bubble full, with huge financial interests at stake, covered over by a uniform, globalist ideology to justify it all – all funded by printed, fiat federal reserve money and the massive Fed.gov debt that allows.
Eric Newhill says
Nice summary. Impressive that you got it all into one sentence that encompasses the issue in its entirety.
Michael Kostich says
Don’t disagree but I have to ask if you ever publish your comments under the obvious nickname, Chuck E. Cheese?
A Boyles says
It is not surprising there are people like these three who profit from corruption both in their own country and especially in Ukraine. Why they never seem to be prosecuted for corruption or for illegal activities is quite simple based on my limited knowledge of the subject – they do the bidding of the government and execute government policy, therefore they are indemnified from any legal proceedings against them. No ethical or moral tendencies in these worms – they just keep causing trouble.
Juan Valdez says
“the skullduggery hall of shame”
Everywhere there is scattering, there is seizure, there is taking possession; no dissimulation about spoiling, and no delay. As if it were all lawful, as if it were all becoming, as if he who does not rob were suffering loss and wasting his own property, thus every one hastens to the rapine. Among thieves there is at any rate some modesty in their crimes. They love pathless ravines and deserted solitudes; and they do wrong in such a way, that still the crime of the wrong-doers is veiled by darkness and night.
Avarice, however, rages openly, and, safe by its very boldness, exposes the weapons of its headlong craving in the light of the market-place. Thence cheats, thence poisoners, thence assassins in the midst of the city, are as eager for wickedness as they are wicked with impunity. The crime is committed by the guilty, and the guiltless who can avenge it is not found. There is no fear from accuser or judge: the wicked obtain impunity, while modest men are silent; accomplices are afraid, and those who are to judge are for sale.
~St. Cyprian of Carthage (c. 250 AD)
Jim Christian says
I saw DC for decades, it’s been brewing for all that time. Face it, a couple of dozen top henchwomen and men (of the ilk of the characters Larry details here, and most of them women), along with their fellow minion-henchwomen and men that they dominate are responsible for nearly all the suffering in the world’s people. It’s the wars, the corruption, the labs and the outright theft of trillians via the MIC scam that has delivered to us a useless military at 10X the price that isn’t needed in any case. Theft, plain and simple, and a death cult to boot. For money, little more. Billions of people suffer in all sorts of ways for the enrichment and entertainment of a couple of thousand evil criminals and their minions. I wouldn’t have joined them even if I could have. Never would have sold my soul, which is what these folks have done.
I admire greatly those who were at or near the top of the intel/military/DC-corruption food chain who were surely invited to a seat at the table of the death cult and refused. And then courageously brought their knowledge to us out here. Many thanks, you know who you are.

Unfortunately there are many who are blind to the bigger picture which only comes when they are shown the light. Like Plato’s allegory of the cave, hard to know what is going on, when you can only see the image placed in front of you and never asking who’s presenting those images to them. And even when many are shown the light they would rather return to the cave. The Matrix movie is another good analogy.
Cato the Uncensored says
Sounds like a lefty re-make of Poppy Bush and the Bechtel Syndicate.
Clarke’s only battlefield ‘victory’ is the massacre of innocent people including children at Waco. His other accomplishments include almost starting WW3 over Pristina Airport. Lock him up!
He is also a war criminal, being subprime commander of US/NATO aggression on FR Yugoslavia.
Waco was the ATF not NATO and it wasn’t headed by Clarke. At least try for some semblance of accuracy in your trolling.
Guess again. He was 1st Cav Commander at Ft. Hood at the time of the massacre. This egomaniac was almost certainly involved with some of the planning.
The main thing I remember about General Clark was his failed attempt to start WW3 in the Pristina airport incident during the Kosovo invasion. Luckily for everyone his subordinate, British General Jackson, flatly refused to carry out General Clark’s order to launch an attack on Russian peacekeeping troops. Allegedly Jackson told him that he wasn’t going to be the man who started WW3 and Clark would have to do it himself.
Srbenda Legenda says
Thanks for posting this important information Bob!
War Criminals Gen. W. Clark and M. Albright have/had business interests in Kosovo* after the illegal NATO Bombing and occupation of 1999.
Clark also used his ties with the US-Albanian diaspora – many ex-KLA fighters who served under the “Atlantic Brigade” to raise funds for Kerry’s failed 2004 Presidential bid.
War Criminals Gen. W. Clark and M. Albright have/had business interests in Kosovo* after the illegal NATO Bombing and occupation of 1999.
Strange, why didn’t Clark or Albright solicit Donetsk or Lugansk for ‘campaign funds’ or ‘business interests’? Not enough drug money, I’d guess.
Bob Jackson says
Slight correction. The future pop star James Blunt refused to obey the order, and General Jackson backed him up. So he deserves twice the praise, first for respecting the laws of war himself, and secondly for demanding the same of his junior officers.
I wonder how many other laptops Hunter has used? Treasure off the coast of Malibu?

With all these monumental cases of corruption, why don’t we hear ‘anti-corruption” organizations like the Transparency International and the like of the IMF fulminating against corruption in the USA?
Simple answer says
Bought and paid for.
Bob Bishop says
Democracy has a price.
Is this democracy?
Hiro Masamune says
No , this is real life.
Linda T says
I just had a new word come to me… demoncracy. It fits these evil demonic psychopaths.
Democracy in theory means the people control the government. In current practice though, Democracy is a shell game to increase public support for the edicts and “regulations” of government authorities controlled by the billionaires
You defend democracy in its classical sense according to the definition given by the ancient Greeks.
“Demos” in Ancient Greece were free people who did not pay taxes, that is, free from paying taxes, having slaves.
“Democracy” is the power of slaveholders.
Are Americans free and unruly citizens? You don’t even have direct presidential elections.
Ben Haskell says
If we had direct presidential elections, stealing elections would be even easier. The electoral college, breaking up the election among the states, serves as a fraud firewall, although a leaky one.
“… free people who did not pay taxes …”
Are you sure that Athenian free citizens did not pay any taxes? And what about the super rich? Were they not taxed in times of war?
And in Ancient Rome? Only free citizens payed taxes. And they were proud about it…
I’m not sure – I didn’t live in Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece.
I am not sure about the subject of your pride in the USA – freedom and democracy – I have not lived in America.
It’s none of my business. The main thing is that you like it, that you are satisfied.
John Stolz says
Am I the only one who still remembers Wesley Clark posing in a T shirt and leather jacket for the cover of The Advocate, Feb 2004 issue? That’s the most influential homosexual magazine in the US. My doubts about the military and this character in particular began about then.
Everyone is getting rich off of the blood of Ukrainians and Russians. America rots in place for lack of maintenance on our 1950s transportation system. 70,000 bridges are only held together by rust and corrosion. America has zero high-speed trains. China and Japan have hundreds. The money for improvements and infrastructure was stolen for the failed, “War on Terror”.
In America, there is no transparency, accountability or even the rule of law.

Is any critic of the Democratic party and liberal establishment capable of using precise terminology?
“.. the left-leaning think tank, the Truman National Security Project board…”
what is “left” about Truman, his namesake think tank or the Democratic party? Might want to revisit your history of the French revolution to review the actual meanings of words?
The definitions are quite precise..there is no–repeat NO–“leftist” capitalist. None. Zero. The moment you are “left,” you are at least an econonomic socialist.
Ar least be precise and say “relative left.” But that sounds strange so just say capitalist liberal
“The moment you are “left,” you are at least an econonomic socialist.”
That is the political spectrum that I grew up with, but I think you can throw that spectrum out the – Overton – window for all the value it has now.
The esteemed (in China only) American economic philospher Michael Hudson in his latest interview:
“… you’re now seeing the Republicans joined by the right wing of the political spectrum, which is the Democratic Party, wanting to cut back Social Security and Medicare … ”
I see there is a Republican movement afoot in Congress to denounce socialism, and if the Democrats don’t play along, they will be labeled as reds and commies.
The GOP refuses to recognize the current political reality, the Democratic Party has flanked them to the right, and now have the likes of the MIC, Wall Street and every globalist enterprise under the sun, first filling up Dem pockets before they fill up their’s.
Seemingly that leaves the Republicans with only two options going forward, they can humbly accept the role of globalist banana party number two, or they can transform and become a worker’s party -a party of the people!
I wonder which they’ll choose? Lmao …
Well i think Trump was basically an old school Blue Dog Democrat and Ed Koch acolyte with an immigration policy the left of Eisenhower (see “Operation Wetback”) ..he was basically a Nixonian figure but who pushed the GOP slightly leftward on reliably working class issues…but ultimately caved on core GOP donor issues of Big Oil and Israel (which itself its really a Big Oil geostrategic project)…
The problem is financialized capitalism and the elite corporate stranglehold on the political process…but the banking cartels thru their lapdog media megaphone are extremely adept at turning natural leftists (literally all workers are natural leftists-after all what worker thinks its ok for Jeff Bezos to own the world) against each other with cultural issues. Trump made the mistake of playing along with the narrstive games by making it about “immigration” and “socialism” instead of about corporate capture of democracy. The closest he came was pegging the “deep state” but he never overtly expressed what the deep state really is: the bureaucratic institutional protectors of private capital.
These types of revelations of what happens behind the scenes should convince people that the divide in America is not between Right or Left, or democrat vs republican. It is between the Ruling Class (insiders) and their institutions versus the rest of us (outsiders). Now there are factions among the Ruling Class and sometimes fights break out between them. And sometimes there are winners and losers. But more often than not, they intermingle and share common goals.
Back in 1789 the French Left called themselves “patriots” and they called their counterparts on the right “aristocrats”. Patriots against aristocrats are pretty good descriptions for what’s going on today too.
Enrique Guillermoprieto says
Yeah, right…’aristocrats’. More like over the hill Colombian pick pocket gangs straight off the streets of Medellin.
Probably all slurp their soup too.
Bob Vavich says
Not to mention that Wesley Clark was commander in chief of the NATO forces bombing Yugoslavia in 1999 to add to his credentials. A real Clintonian and some….
Clean Sweep says
….and actually tried running for president. Whole lott’a street cleaning this country’s gott’a do before long.
Not surprised. Part way through Whitney Webb’s “One Nation Under Blackmail” – about the rise of Jeffrey Epstein. Very detailed looked at the corrupt links between – US/Israeli/UK Intelligence, business (big, medium & small), banks (big, medium & small), the Fed and other reserve banks (notably the Bank of England and the Rothschilds) , oligarchs, organized crime, politicians (Republican and Democrat plus other western and Soviet/Chinese), mainstream press, foreign governments. Devotes a chapter to Iran-Contra which in reality was just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Am I surprised by what was written in the item above written by Bob Bishop. No. Am I surprised by what I’m reading in Webb’s 2 volumes? No again. Sort of knew what Webb is describing – what Webb has done is bring it all together in one place. Recommend the books – if you have the stomach as it goes into the sexual exploitation of all of the above in young people incl children.
Vallhalla Rising says
We may all be over complicating the US’ fanatical, irrational and psychotic support to the Ukraine. It may be as simple as the Commander in Chief simply trying to protect Hunter, the Clintons, those mentioned above and himself from the plethora of damning evidence the Russians are sure to discover as they prosecute the UKR SMO.
Stated plainly Biden is using US tax dollars and military hardware in an attempt to cover his ass…impeachable if proven…maybe that’s the plan.
If wishes were fishes says
In past societies, Hunter would have been stripped bare (if not already), tarred and feathered and ridden out of the country on a rail.
And he’d count his blessings for having gotten off easy.
just saying says
In modern western society, those events are called Pride Parades.
Biswapriya Purkayastha says
Not every day, ladies and gentlemen, will you meet a general general who retired from being a retired general.
Don’t forget about Devon Archer (John Kerry’s chief bundler in 2004 and trustee of the family Heinz Family fortune [Kerry’s wife]), Stephan Kappes (ex-Deputy Director of the CIA and fellow board member of Diamondback tactical with Devon Archer), and ex-Polish President Aleksander Kwaśniewski (who the CIA paid $15 million to “allow” building of the Stare Kiejkuty secret rendition facility in Poland).
Yes, these three sat on the board of Burisma in 2014 with Hunter Biden. It doesn’t take much to connect the dots that Burisma was the focal point of a lot of clandestine activity for the U.S. government and Ukrainian oligarchs. And most likely the reason we’ll never get the true story about Hunter’s part in the whole thing, other than being a direct conduit to/from VP Biden about the post-coup maneuverings of the deep state.
These people never suffer the consequences of war: death.
The Wizard says
We’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.

Yep, I remember that. Everything is done out in the open, and people are still too blind to see.

I still hold out hope that one day the boogeyman will remove these parasites from the planet. There must be undercover special agents or paid black ops agents ready to remove these people or have I been watching too much Jason Bourne.
Wesley Clark was a director of THE INTERNATIONAL CRISIS GROUP which of course was designed to cause international crisis with fellow luminanaries Soros, Malloch Brown, Guistra, Summers and many more. https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/FC018735/officers?page=1
