The Issue: News that now-President Biden had dinner with Hunter Biden’s foreign business associates in 2015.

I read with some amusement the articles on Hunter and President Biden concerning their 2015 dinner (“Gaining dinner entrée to Joe,” May 27).

I say “amusement” only because the majority of Americans will never learn about it.

The mainstream media and social-media platforms are now part of the Democratic Party. They simply censor any story that reflects badly on any important Democrat. That is a huge reason why Joe Biden won the presidency in the first place.

So, no matter how damning this article is, it will never be seen or heard by anyone who reads and listens only to the mainstream media.

The story of Joe and Hunter dining with Kazakhstan big shots speaks volumes — not only of the Bidens’ corruption, but even worse, the refusal of Democrats to acknowledge this misbehavior, lest it undermine their goal to remake America.

Dictators and their followers ignore inconvenient truths for fear that these truths might arouse the public and interfere with their goals and ambition.

Sadly, this is the America we now live in, which most mainstream media outlets ignore.

Another day, another news alert that the Bidens are nothing but career grifters.

Hunter was raking in millions in exchange for peddling influence with “the big guy,” Joe Biden.

Thank God for The Post, because otherwise we would never be made aware of the corrupt Bidens and their dealings with our enemies.

Never would The New York Times or The Washington Post publish anything that would tarnish the Biden legacy — which seems to amount to offering political favors to the highest bidder.

To Hunter Biden: A multimillion-dollar consulting assignment is about a lot more than just a paycheck.

It’s about putting food on the table for your shady business associates at extravagant dinners that your dad was happy to attend.

And, finally, it is about your dad’s denial of knowledge of those dinners when he becomes president because he is totally confident the mainstream media will never stop covering for him.

The Issue: Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors’ resignation following criticism of her spending habits.

Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors’ real-estate buying spree isn’t the problem, considering she has two centuries of behavioral precedent by whites as an instruction manual (“BLM’s boss quits,” May 28).

As a white man, I wonder how anyone could be upset with this black woman’s actions, when the same behavior has been prevalent among white people in positions of wealth, power and influence for centuries. Pot, meet kettle. Kettle, meet pot.

How many white individuals go into public office with modest bank accounts, only to leave with sizable fortunes? I’m not excusing any of it, but let’s not single out this one woman.

I say we congratulate her on her leadership and entrepreneurial skills and wish her well as one of the newest members of the club.

Cullors has resigned. She got rich off the backs of her unfortunate supporters.

Yet there will be no outrage over her disgraceful leadership.
