Let’s connect a few dots here and see what picture it gives us, shall we?
Biden was apoplectic when SCOTUS ruled that University admission requirements could not artificially disadvantage well-qualified Asian students competing for the same seats as students from other ethnic minorities.
President Joe Biden said Thursday that he “strongly, strongly” disagrees with the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the use of affirmation action in college admissions, saying justices unraveled “decades of precedent” as the president stressed that race-based discrimination continues to exist in America.
Echoing her dissent, Biden urged colleges not to let the ruling “be the last word.”
“They should not abandon their commitment to ensure student bodies of diverse backgrounds and experience that reflect all of America,” Biden said from the White House. He said colleges should evaluate “adversity overcome” by candidates. —PBS
He thinks it’s entirely justifiable for a school to disfavor high-achieving Asian students to favor so that they can boost enrollment among other target demographics.
Joe even drew ire when he denounced them as ‘not a normal court’, as if SCOTUS had any less claim to explicit Constitutional legitimacy than the Office of the President itself does.
But there are SOME Asian students who should by no means have to suffer from any limitations such affirmative action policies would have on their particular ability to access to such schools. You can recognize such special students by who their fathers are.
Remember that Chinese official whose kids got a personal letter of recommendation from Joe Biden to help them get into school? The ‘ask’ for that help first came to Hunter Biden in the final few weeks his dad’s time working as Veep.
Emails obtained by Fox News indicate Jonathan Li, the CEO of investment fund BHR, reached out to Hunter Biden and his business partners Devon Archer and Jim Bulger on Jan. 3, 2017, for advice about burnishing the college application of Li’s son Chris.
“Gentlmen[sic], please find the attached resume of my son, Chris Li. He is applying the following colleges for this year,” wrote Li, listing Brown University, Cornell University and NYU. — NYPost
A letter from Joe Biden must not carry much weight. Joe provided the recommendation letters, but neither of Li’s kids were accepted.
The email chain did not include a copy of the letter from Joe Biden, who was less than a month removed from spending eight years as vice president under Barack Obama. The future 46th president also wrote a recommendation letter for Li’s daughter when she was applying to Georgetown University, The Post has learned.
Li’s son and daughter were rejected from Brown and Georgetown respectively, despite Biden’s recommendations, The Post understands
Hunter Biden introduced Joe Biden to Jonathan Li during a vice presidential trip to China in December 2013, according to an account a BHR representative gave The New Yorker in 2019. Days after the trip, according to author Peter Schweizer, Rosemont Seneca signed a deal with the state-owned Bank of China to create BHR, which still lists Li as CEO and Jim Bulger as a director. — NYPost
What kind of a warm relationship would Joe Biden have with Li’s family that he would offer such a recommendation — one that flies in the face of Joe’s deeply-held and not-at-all-cynical convictions about university acceptance of disadvantaged student groups?
It wasn’t warm, exactly. Not like a longstanding family friendship or anything. The relationship was more accurately described as… you guessed it… financial.
Hunter Biden told business partner Devon Archer that the Chinese tycoon who helped them secure a multi-million-dollar venture in the communist state loved him for his “last name” and for always traveling with “handsome godlike Aryan men,” according to emails reviewed by Fox News Digital.
In the 2011 email thread, Hunter bragged to Archer about his relationship with Che Feng, a Chinese business tycoon who they referred to as “The Super Chairman.”
The emails show that Feng helped Hunter’s firm Rosemont Seneca Partners and James Bulger’s firm Thornton Group LLC secure their partnership with Jonathan Li’s firm Bohai Capital in order to later launch Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), which is controlled by Bank of China Limited.
The news comes after Archer reportedly told the House Oversight and Accountability Committee in a closed-door interview Monday that Biden, as vice president, had coffee with Li and wrote a college letter of recommendation for Li’s daughter.
Hunter then forwarded Lin’s email to Archer, who co-founded Rosemont Seneca Partners, and said the proposal seemed like the windfall they were seeking.
“Keep this btw us pls,” Hunter told Archer. “But bottom line is if I/ you and me get around 7% of this fund it could be in many ways the end all be all. I dont believe in lottery tickets anymore, but I do believe in the super chairman. See below. I know Michael can be overly optimistic but if we were 20% owners of a CIC super chairman backed fund I think the sky’s the limit.”
“Wow,” Archer replied.
Back in 2021, long before the whistleblowers went public and Oversight started putting flesh on the bones of these allegations, BBC (which could hardly be accused of being a MAGA-hat wearing news corp) mentioned Hunter Biden’s trip to China, raising exactly this issue.
In 2013, Hunter flew aboard Air Force Two with his father, who was then vice-president, on an official visit to Beijing, where the younger Biden met investment banker Jonathan Li.
Hunter told the New Yorker he had just met Mr Li for “a cup of coffee”, but 12 days after the trip a private equity fund, BHR Partners, was approved by the Chinese authorities. Mr Li was chief executive and Hunter was a board member. He would hold a 10% stake. –BBC/p>
They were neither the first nor the last to make such connections.
But with evidence adding up, it’s getting more difficult for even the most shameless cheerleaders on the left to just wish this story away.
Coming back to the main idea here…
Joe Biden fully supports affirmative action in giving classroom seats to what might be called disadvantaged demographics even if it means snubbing deserving students of the ‘wrong’ skin color… unless they happen to be from a family that helped line his pockets.
“Man of principle?”
“Soul of the nation?”
Give me a break.
The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.
In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.
