  • Harvard, Yale Defy Federal Guidelines, Will Continue Racial Discrimination in Admissions

    Breitbart ^ | 07/09/18 | Tom Ciccotta
    New reports suggest that Harvard and Yale are ignoring Federal guidelines against the use of race in university admissions. A report from Fox News claims that some Ivy League universities are doubling down on their affirmative action policies after receiving a “Dear Colleague” letter from Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos that requested they stop using race in university admissions. The continued use of race in university admissions practices put their federal funding at risk. “It’s racial discrimination and it’s a quota. The quota today is against Asians, much like the quota back in the 1920s and 30s was against Jews,”...

    Reuters ^ | 3 Jul 2018
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration plans to revoke guidelines that encourage considering race in the college admissions process as a way of promoting diversity, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday. The guidelines, put in place in the Obama administration in 2011 and 2016, put forth legal recommendations that Trump officials contend “mislead schools to believe that legal forms of affirmative action are simpler to achieve than the law allows,” the Journal reported, citing two people familiar with the plans. Trump administration officials plan to argue the guidelines go beyond what the Supreme Court has decided on the issue....

    Last year, the University of Texas won the case over its use of racial preferences (Fisher v. Texas), but the Supreme Court did not rule that all racial preference plans were legal. A new suit against Harvard may prove to be successful. Here’s the background. In its affirmative action cases, starting with the Bakke case in 1978, the Supreme Court has justified race-conscious admissions while also emphasizing that they should be “temporary.” Indeed, writing for the Court in the Grutter case in 2003, which upheld race-based admissions to the Michigan Law School, Justice O’Connor described as a “requirement” that “all...

    On a blustery afternoon in April, I filed into a van along with 10 students from Harvard University. We had just spent the last two days in Chicopee, Massachusetts, where we had chatted with the police chief and his force, the mayor and his staff, small business owners, waitresses and firemen about their struggles living in small-town America. The undergrads were buzzing with their impressions. Chicopee is about 90 miles west of their prestigious university in Cambridge, but when it comes to shared experience, it might as well have been 1,000 light-years away. We were only a few days into...

    Branford College residence, Yale University Earlier this week, I addressed the national hissy fit over separating children from adults who claim to be their parents at U.S. borders. I noted what happened before the U.S. started doing that. Under Obama, we unwittingly handed thousands of children to slave labor operators or sex traffickers. Because they claimed to be their parents. Even Obama felt constrained to stop doing that. He put in place the policy which Trump is now enforcing. Bush-era laws and crackpot court decisions won’t let the government hold children with their parents while we evaluate their asylum...
  • Scientists say Trump policies will kill 80,000 people per decade

    The blatant use of science for political gain is not new, but it's clearly getting worse. All kinds of "science" is being used to justify policies that fit a particular political agenda. Case in point: Some Harvard scientists have examined the environmental policies of the Trump administration and concluded that up to 80,000 people a decade will die as a result of political decisions that they disagree with. It used to be that such pronouncements were dismissed as "unscientific." Today, it's front page news.

    The cultural revolution is just getting started in medicine. And when it's done, medicine will consist entirely of venting about "white men" as the real "disease". What began with tearing down Confederate statues has now moved on to taking down portraits of people who are not even being accused of racism. They're just... white men. Nabel said no one on staff has objected to taking down portraits of past department heads, which include Dr. Harvey Cushing, the "father of neurosurgery," who studied at Harvard and Yale and became surgeon-in-chief at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in 1913. Cushing operated on hundreds...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/17/2018 | Ed Straker
    I always knew that my alma mater, Harvard University, discriminates against Asians.  But I was surprised to learn how the university does it.  A lawsuit filed has shed some light on the matter. (By the way, although I am not a racist, I despise the word "Asians" – it can mean anything from Chinese to Pakistanis.  Although I will play along and continue to use the word "Asians," we are mostly talking about Chinese heritage here, with a smattering of Korean heritage, Japanese heritage, Filipino heritage, and a few other groups of applicants.) Harvard is being sued by a group claiming that Asians were...

    Harvard consistently rated Asian-American applicants lower than any other race on personal traits like “positive personality,” likability, courage, kindness and being “widely respected,” according to an analysis of more than 160,000 student records filed Friday in federal court in Boston by a group representing Asian-American students in a lawsuit against the university. Asian-Americans scored higher than applicants of any other racial or ethnic group on admissions measures like test scores, grades and extracurricular activities, according to the analysis commissioned by a group that opposes all race-based admissions criteria. But the students’ personal ratings significantly dragged down their chances of being...

    Clinton on Friday for her “transformative impact on society.” That’s not a misprint. The prestigious Ivy League university is giving the woman who ran for president and lost, twice, an award for transforming society. Harvard said it picked Clinton because of her advocacy for human rights, her work as a legislator, and her leadership around the world on behalf of America. If “transformative impact” and Hillary Clinton in the same sentence has you shaking your head, you’re not alone. She not only lost the presidency twice, she has wasted the last year and a half going on tour around the...

She’s still whining and crying, and yet here’s Obama saying, “If you start whining before the game’s even over, if things are going badly, you start blaming somebody else, you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.” Hello, Hillary Clinton. Well, she doesn’t have what it takes to be in the job. She never has had what it takes to be in the...

    The slime ball has the audacity to judge Trump from his perch on CNN?! 1. In 1986 Toobin took “The Oath,” marrying fellow Harvard student Amy McIntosh and promising to be faithful to her. They have two teenage children. 2. It did not take long for Toobin — who has been called “The Tiger Woods of Legal Journalism” because he shares Tiger’s “weakness for women and wandering eye” — to break that oath. 3. By the mid-1990s, Toobin was aggressively hitting on women, using “disgusting, ” “shockingly sexual come-on lines.” According to one of the women (apparently book editor and...

    I think I must have been ill that day. At some point, no one can say precisely when, libertarians apparently swore a feudal oath of fealty to the Republican Party. In response to an American Prospect article on libertarian disenchantment with the Bush administration, Reason's own former editor in chief Virginia Postrel explained that "real Dean voters don't like Jeff Flake. (I do.)" On the Crossfire view of politics, this makes sense: You pick your team and root for it, come hell or high water. The Platonic Real Dean Voter can't possibly hold any affection for a member of the...

Radcliffe Day will feature a personal tribute to Secretary Clinton delivered by the global affairs trailblazer, former secretary of state, and 2001 Radcliffe Medalist Madeleine Albright and a wide-ranging keynote conversation between Secretary Clinton and Massachusetts...

    (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department said on Friday it might formally enter a lawsuit accusing Harvard University of discriminating against Asian-American applicants as the agency probes its admissions policies for potential civil rights violations.The department disclosed its plan in a brief urging a federal judge in Boston to not allow the Ivy League school to file pre-trial court papers and documents provisionally under seal. Harvard had cited the need to protect the privacy of applicants and students as well as the inner workings of its admissions process, arguing that various documents should be initially filed under seal pending the...
