'There will be a private ceremony followed by a memorial yet to be planned once the virus has ended.'

Jason told the BBC: 'We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time.

'A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor.'

Sir Sean, whose movie career spans five decades, is best known for being the first to portray the role of British fictional spy 007 who he played between 1962–1971.

He was today hailed as 'the world's greatest Scot and last of the real Hollywood stars' as the acting community and beyond rallied to remember him.

Sir Sean frequently tops polls as the best Bond to have played the role following his parts in Dr No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball and You Only Live Twice.

Through the official James Bond Twitter page, the incumbent 007 Daniel Craig led the tributes: Sir Sean Connery will be remembered as Bond and so much more. He defined an era and a style. The wit and charm he portrayed on screen could be measured in mega watts; he helped create the modern blockbuster.

'He will continue to influence actors and film-makers alike for years to come. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones. Wherever he is, I hope there is a golf course.

Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli paid tribute to Sir Sean in a statement: 'We are devastated by the news of the passing of Sir Connery.

'He was and shall always be remembered as the original James Bond whose indelible entrance into cinema history began when he announced those unforgettable words - 'The name's Bond... James Bond' - he revolutionised the world with his gritty and witty portrayal of the sexy and charismatic secret agent.

'He is undoubtedly largely responsible for the success of the film series and we shall be forever grateful to him.'

Hugh Jackman tweeted: I grew up idolizing Connery. A legend on screen, and off. Rest In Peace.'

Sir Sean was knighted by the Queen in 2000 and celebrated his 90th birthday in August.

A fierce nationalist, he banged the drum for Scottish Independence ahead of the 2014 referendum and befriended key SNP figures.

Former First Minister Alex Salmond today described his friend Sir Sean as 'the world's greatest Scot, the last of the real Hollywood stars, the definitive Bond.' 

His successor Nicola Sturgeon said: 'I was heartbroken to learn this morning of the passing of Sir Sean Connery. Our nation today mourns one of her best loved sons.

'Sean was born into a working class Edinburgh family and through talent and sheer hard work, became an international film icon and one of the world's most accomplished actors.

'Sean will be remembered best as James Bond - the classic 007 - but his roles were many and varied. He was a global legend but, first and foremost, a patriotic and proud Scot - his towering presence at the opening of the Scottish Parliament and in 1999 showed his love for the country of his birth.'

Born Thomas Sean Connery in Edinburgh's Fountainbridge area on August 25 1930, the actor left school at an early age and took his first job as a milkman.

At 16 he enlisted in the Royal Navy but was discharged three years later on medical grounds after suffering a stomach ulcer.

His first major step into acting came in 1957 when he secured a role in the British gangster film No Road Back.

He has two tattoos from this time - one reading 'Mum and Dad' and another 'Scotland Forever'.

The keen bodybuilder then undertook a variety of jobs, including a stint as a bricklayer, a lifeguard and an artist's model for the Edinburgh College of Art. Under the name Thom Connery he was placed third in the tall man's division (he was 6ft 2in) of the 1950 Mr Universe contest.

The stage came calling when a friend suggested he try out for a production of South Pacific. He got a part in the sailors' chorus and so began his acting career.

He was also a gifted footballer. While touring with the musical, he was offered a contract by former Manchester United manager Sir Matt Busby, who saw him play in a friendly against a local side.

His first major acting credit came in 1957 British gangster film No Road Back.

It was author Ian Fleming's suave and sophisticated secret service agent that launched Sir Sean to stardom.

Fleming was initially resistant to the idea of Sir Sean playing his character. He thought the Scot was an 'overgrown stuntman' who was not refined enough for the role.

He was later so impressed with his performance that he created a Scottish ancestry for the character in his subsequent books.

'The Joe meeting happened, the emails are correct and Joe took 10% of equity': Bannon says EVERYTHING reported in Hunter laptop scandal is true and reveals how lawyer for Biden's son tried to get hard drive back - proving 'it's no Russian intel op'

* Steve Bannon said Sunday everything found on Hunter Biden's lap top is true
* 'Joe Biden has lied about this for years,' the former White House strategist said
* He also revealed that Hunter Biden's lawyer tried desperately to get the hard drive back after it was left at a lap top
   repair shop with his water damaged Mac
* Bannon also revealed Sunday that if Trump fails to win a second White House term he will run again in 2024
* 'You're not going to see the end of Donald Trump,' he said
* Bannon was recently arrested for federal money-laundering

Steve Bannon said Sunday everything that has come to light from Hunter Biden's hard drive is true as he paints Joe Biden as a 'stone cold liar' after revelations show deep financial ties between the Biden's and Chinese Communist Party.

'Joe Biden has lied about this for years,' Bannon told Sky News in an interview Sunday.

'What Fox did, which was very interesting on that issue but also on the Chinese – they actually went to the people on the emails and contacted them. What was so stunning is that they reported last night that one, the guys on the emails said absolutely the meetings happened. This is not off of some Russia intelligence operation. That emails correct, the meanings correct and, by the way, that 10 per cent of the equity is Joe Biden's,' Bannon said.

The former White House strategist for President Donald Trump said Hunter's lawyer tried to email the repair shop to get the laptop back and has since then contacted Bannon and his team to retrieve the sensitive hard drive.

'Hunter Biden's lawyer has come to us both with phone calls and with emails saying, 'hey, I've got to get the hard drive back',' Bannon said.

'This is not some Russian intelligence operation; they admit it's their hard drive,' he continued in proving the validity of the information found on the laptop. 'We have the emails from the Lawyer, if we need to release them, we'll release them.'

Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, is calling on FBI Director Christopher Wray to confirm or deny details regarding the hard drive.

In a letter to Wray, which was obtained by Fox News Sunday, Johnson says that a whistleblower contacted the committee on September 24.

He said they claimed to possess a laptop that Hunter left at his business, and that he had turned it over to the FBI.

Johnson noted in his letter that his staff immediately asked the FBI to confirm certain details to better validate the claim, but the bureau said they would not comment on any of the information.

Trump weighed in on Hunter's emails on Twitter Sunday, and gave his Democratic rival a new nickname: '10% Joe.'

'Hunter Biden's laptop is a disaster for the entire Biden family, but especially for his father, Joe. It is now a proven fact, and cannot be denied, that all of that info is the REAL DEAL,' Trump tweeted. 'That makes it impossible for '50%, or 10%' Joe, to ever assume the office of the President!'

'Joe Biden is a corrupt politician, and everybody knows it,' the president continued in another tweet. 'Now you have the proof, perhaps like never was had before on a major politician. Laptop plus. This is the second biggest political scandal in our history!' 

He also praised the media outlet, The New York Post, for first revealing the contents of the hard drive in a report last week.

'Very proud of the @nypost, my former 'hometown newspaper'. They have said and shown what everyone knows about Sleepy Joe Biden. He is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN!!!' Trump, a usual critic of the press, tweeted.

Bannon continued in his interview with Sky News that 'the stunning thing about these emails… is that Biden has basically said to the American people, 'I knew nothing about it.' Now we actually see they had meetings set up.'

'That sets the predicate that Joe Biden has lied consistently over the last couple years to the American people. He lied on the debate stage with President Trump,' he said.

Emails on the laptop revealed that Hunter planned to introduce his father – who was the then-Vice President – to an executive at the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, where Hunter served on the board of directors.

Publicly, the former vice president has said he's never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings.

But the emails seem to indicate otherwise.

Bannon also said Sunday in an interview with The Australian that Trump will run for re-election in 2024 if he loses the presidential race to Joe Biden next month.

'You're not going to see the end of Donald Trump,' Bannon said when asked what will happen if he fails to win a second White House term in November.

Bannon, who was recently arrested for federal money-laundering and fraud, added that he believes the November 3 election was 'closer than is being reported', and said 'Trump will win on election day'.

'I'll make this prediction right now: if for any reason the election is stolen from or in some sort of way Joe Biden is declared the winner, Trump will announce he's going to run for re-election in 2024,' he told the outlet.

Bannon also predicted the election result will go to the Supreme Court and may even be conferred to the House of Representative in January, saying the outcome will be contentious and 'won't be settled anytime soon'.

Bannon's latest comments cast a slightly more pessimistic tone to remarks made just days ago during a speech in front of the Young Republican Federation, in which he resolutely stated that not only will Trump win on November 3, but he'll secure victory very early.

'At 10 o'clock or 11 o'clock… on November 3, Donald J. Trump is going to walk into the Oval Office, and he may hit a tweet before he goes in there… and he's going to sit there, having won Ohio, and being up in Pennsylvania and Florida, and he's going to say, 'Hey, game's over,'' Bannon, Trump's 2016 campaign CEO, told the crowd.

'The elites are traumatized. They do not want to go stand in line and vote. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a game-changer,' Bannon continued. 'It [the decisive factor] is what electorate shows up to vote on a vote that can be certified. That's a vote that counts. And right now, what they [Trump critics] don't want to talk about, is Donald J. Trump leads on people who are actually going to show up and vote on November 3, by 21 percent.'

Speaking to the Australian, Bannon also claimed that the lawyers acting for Joe Biden's son Hunter have made numerous attempts to retrieve his computer hard-drive that's now at the center of an FBI probe.

Such extensive efforts reportedly include sending legal letters to the owner of a Delaware repair shop where the Democratic presidential candidate's son had reportedly dropped off his laptop to be serviced in 2019.

Last week, the New York Post published emails and photographs that the outlet claimed were contained on a laptop owned by Hunter Biden, which he apparently never collected from the repair store.

The hard drive was retrieved by a third-party from the shop owner in January and then sent to Giuliani. Giuliani seemingly then sat on the information for months, before releasing it to the Post just weeks before the election.

The messages suggested that Hunter Biden had arranged for a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm, of which Hunter was on the board of directors, to meet his father in person, when he was vice-president and in charge of US policy with Ukraine.

In the emails published by the Post, Biden is shown pursuing a lucrative deal involving China's largest private energy company, saying in one message that the proposed deal would be 'interesting for me and my family', before discussing remuneration packages.

Bannon, who alerted the Post to the laptop's existence, claimed that Biden's lawyers contacted Rudy Giuliani, Trump's attorney, hours before the emails were published in a last-ditch effort to retrieve Hunter's alleged hard-drive.

'His lawyer, [George] Mesires from Chicago, one of the top lawyers in the country, emailed us. He called the repair shop, he sent us an email, he sent the repair shop an email saying Hunter dropped these off, he forgot to pick them up. That's an email,' Bannon told the Australian.

'In addition, we haven't ­released this, Hunter Biden's lawyer has come to us both with phone calls and with emails saying I've got to get the hard-drive back. This is not some Russian ­intelligence operation, they've ­admitted it's their hard-drive.

'It was the night before we came out with the first story, I think, because the NY Post went to them for comment… they panicked. One lawyer started calling around and sent the emails.'

Bannon reiterated his claim that Biden's lawyer had also sent legal notices to the owner of the repair shop seeking return of the hard-drive.

'We're breaking news here. He actually in a panic called… ­because Hunter when he dropped it off, there was two or three of these shops in Wilmington. They called around and he figured out it might be this guy. He called him and when the guy said I can't ­remember, I'm going back to my shop, he sent a couple of emails in a panic saying 'I've got to get my hands on this right away.''

Bannon, who said he was contacted by Giuliani in late August to help with media strategy for the emails, said he has been holding on to the legal letters and waiting to use them if the Biden camp tried to deny the laptop ­belonged to Hunter.

'We haven't released that yet. We're holding that back to make sure if they walk into the trap, we're just going to drop it on them,' he said.

'My training under Andrew Breitbart was put it out, let them lie and then bang, drop them on the lie, let them lie some more, drop it again. We have the emails from the lawyer, if we need to ­release them, we'll release them.'

The FBI is reportedly conducting an investigation into whether the allegations are part of a Russian disinformation campaign against the Biden campaign, though the agency has refused to speak publicly on the matter.

FBI Director Christopher Wray has warned that Russia is trying to 'denigrate' Biden ahead of the election and damage his chances of unseating Trump.

Bannon was arrested and charged in August with defrauding donors to a private fund-raising effort called We Build the Wall, which was intended to bolster the president's signature initiative along the Mexican border.

The fund-raising effort collected more than $25 million, and prosecutors say Bannon used nearly $1 million of it for personal expenses.

Bannon pleaded not guilty to the charges on August 20.

Off-Topic / Second batch of smoking gun emails reveal Hunter Biden's dealings with 'disappea
« on: October 15, 2020, 10:29:03 am »Message ID: 1342327
Second batch of smoking gun emails reveal Hunter Biden's dealings with 'disappeared' Chinese energy company chairman about his $30 MILLION consultancy fee 'for introductions alone'

* Hunter Biden was involved with China's largest private energy company CEFC
* He was given equity, ownership of a holding company and huge consulting fees
* Hunter was dealing with CEFC chairman Ye Jianming who has since vanished
* In one email, Hunter said a lucrative deal would be 'interesting for my family'
* A report about the emails did not include response from Biden or others involved

Hunter Biden pursued deals with a major Chinese energy company including one that would be 'interesting for me and my family', new secret emails said to be from the presidential candidate's son claim.

He also struck a deal for $30 million plus bonuses 'based on introductions alone' over three years after his father left office, then was offered a 'much more lasting and lucrative arrangement.'

The son of the Democratic presidential nominee communicated with China's largest private energy company, CEFC, according to the latest trove of messages unearthed by the New York Post from what is said to be Hunter's personal laptop.

The trove of emails have set of a series of political shockwaves including:

* The laptop was revealed to include a picture of Hunter with what appears to be a crack pipe, and an 11-minute sex
   and drug video which is still to be seen;
* Twitter barred the Trump campaign from its account for trying to share the originally story about Hunter's Ukraine
   emails amid a mounting row over 'censorship' by it and Facebook;
* Donald Trump seized on the release - orchestrated by his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani - to call his rival 'a corrupt
* Senate Republicans said they will investigate the first tranche of emails, from Hunter's Ukrainian business partners,
   which appear to show the Burisma energy aide being introduced to Joe Biden when he was vice president;
* Democrats accusing Giuliani of peddling 'misinformation' and 'parading around with a Russian agent.'

The latest emails, published again early in the morning, focus on Hunter's dealings with Ye Jianming, the former chairman of CEFC in 2017, after his father had left office and when it was thought he would not run in 2020.

Ye has not been seen since he was taken into custody by Chinese authorities in 2018 amid rumored links to the Chinese military and intelligence services.

It was previously known that he gave Hunter a diamond 

CEFC went bankrupt earlier this year after it was unable to repay its huge debts after warnings over its lack of transparency and dealings with sanctioned Russian firms.

In one email sent to Hunter in May 2017 titled 'Expectations', details of 'remuneration packages' for six people in a business venture were discussed.

He was identified as the 'chair/vice chair depending on agreement with CEFC', an apparent reference to the now bankrupt Shanghai conglomerate China Energy Co.

Hunter's pay was '850' and the correspondence also noted how he 'has some office expectations he will elaborate'.
Another email outlines a 'provisional agreement' where 80 per cent of the 'equity' would be shared equally among four people whose initials appear to relate to Hunter and three other recipients.

The sender of the email, James Gilliar, from consulting firm J2cR, said: 'I am happy to raise any detail with Zang if there is shortfalls?'

The email divides the equity into '20 H' - meaning 20 per cent equity to Hunter; 20 per cent to RW, meaning Rob Walker, also of the jc2r consultancy; 20 per cent to another man called Tony Bubulinski.

The remaining 20 per cent was split with 10 per cent going to 'Jim' who is otherwise unnamed, and then '10 held by H for the big guy?'

The big guy is unnamed.

Zang appears to be a reference to Zang Jian Jun who was the former executive director of CEFC.

In another 2017 email, Hunted reportedly discussed a deal with Ye. According to the leaked emails, Biden wrote that Ye had been influential in improving a three-year consulting contract with CEFC that would pay him $10million annually just for introductions.

He was given half ownership of a holding company to sweeten the deal, with Ye owning the other half.

According to the leaked emails, Biden wrote: 'Consulting fees is one piece of our income stream but the reason this proposal by the chairman was so much more interesting to me and my family is that we would also be partners inn the equity and profits of the JV's [joint venture's] investments.'

His email was sent to Gongwen Dong who has been linked to the purchase of two luxury Manhattan apartments for a total of $83million, which were bought by companies linked to Ye, according to the Wall Street Journal.

A photo from August 2017 appears to show a flowchart of the ownership of Hudson West which is split equally between Hunter Biden and 'Chairman'.

A report on Biden's business dealings released last month found Hudson West III opened a line of credit in September 2017.

Credit cards issued against the account were used by Hunter, his uncle James and James's wife Sara.

They purchased more than $100,000 worth of items including airline tickets, Apple products, hotel and restaurant bookings, according to the report released by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

Hudson West has since been dissolved and Hunter's law firm Owaco PC was one of its two owners the report said. 

Also seen in the emails was an agreement from one of Ye's associates to pay Biden a retainer of $1million for counsel on US law.

The offer was made by former Hong Kong government official Chi Ping Patrick Ho, who has been convicted in Manhattan for two schemes to pay $3million in bribes to African government officials for oil rights.

He served a prison sentence of three years and was deported to Hong Kong in June.

The revelations come after emails come from Hunter's laptop appeared to show him making an introduction between his powerful father and a Ukrainian energy firm on Wednesday.

Gas company Burisma' adviser Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for 'an opportunity to meet your father' in an email sent in 2015, according to the stash of data given to the New York Post by Rudy Giuliani. 

Biden dismissed the findings, and his spokesman Andrew Bates said the paper ' never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story...moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.'   

The emails are among a trove being referenced by Giuliani and his team after the owner of a computer repair shop in Delaware recovered data from a MacBook pro laptop that was dropped off and never retrieved.

The computer was seized by the FBI and its contents shared with the Post by Giuliani.

Giuliani's lawyer Bob Costello said there are some 40,000 emails on the hard drive including thousands of texts. It also includes images of Hunter 'in very compromising positions,' Costello told Fox News.

There has been no comment on the new emails from Biden's campaign, his lawyer, nor the Chinese businessman.

But Biden's lawyer has previously dismissed the stories, accusing Giuliani of dishonesty.
