    University of California Regents Party Hearty Janet Napolitano’s politburo is corrupt and incompetent as the UC president herself. University of California president Janet Napolitano stashed away $175 million in a secret slush fund while publicly beating the drum for tuition and fee increases. Napolitano interfered with state auditors, prompting UC students and workers to call for her arrest and Democratic legislators to demand her resignation. For their part, the UC regents publicly defended Napolitano, and it has now emerged how the regents responded to students and worker protests. The night of the protest, May 17, CBS News reported, “the regents...

    Xavier Becerra, the California AG who charged the Center for Medical Progress with 15 felony counts for its undercover reporting on Planned Parenthood, will not be opening an investigation into the millions of dollars kept hidden by UC President Janet Napolitano.An audit, which I wrote about here last month, found that Napolitano’s office amassed $175 million in reserve funds by repeatedly overestimating costs and then spending less than it claimed was needed. Meanwhile, the office was also paying salaries significantly higher than comparable workers in state government and covering lavish travel expenses.When the auditor asked school administrators at the...
  • Who Cares About Janet Napolitano's Worthless Apology To CA Legislators?

    Janet Napolitano wasn't brought to California to legitimately run the massive taxpayer-funded University of California system; she was brought in to help facilitate the "fundamental" changes in the entire system There are numerous news articles about University of California President Janet Napolitano apologizing to legislators this week over a state audit which found $175 million squirreled away in a secret account, while the UC universities were increasing tuition costs on students. The problem is, her apology is hollow, meaningless, worthless, or any number of synonyms for her senseless drivel. She knows nothing will happen to her.

    In a contentious 4 ½ hour legislative hearing yesterday in Sacramento, Janet Napolitano, President of the University of California made a pro-forma apology for conduct that should have gotten her fired. She tried to rig an independent state audit, and she got caught, and she is sorry [I paraphrase]. Alexi Koseff explains further in the Sacramento Bee: University of California President Janet Napolitano apologized Tuesday for creating the “wrong impression” that she had improperly interfered in a critical state audit of her office released last week. At a legislative hearing to review the audit findings, Napolitano acknowledged that she...
  • Audit: UC President Napolitano Hid $175 Million While Raising Tuition

    The California State Auditor issued a scathing report last week alleging that University of California President and former Obama Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano raised tuitions while her office hid $175 million. The cover page for State Auditor Elaine Howle’s 167-page audit report states bluntly that the UC president’s office “Failed to Disclose Tens of Millions in Surplus Funds, and Its Budget Practices Are Misleading.” The audit found that the UC spent $32.5 billion on expenses during the 2015-16 school year to fund 10 campuses, five medical centers, and its Office of the President headquarters. Although the UC states...
  • So how does Janet Napolitano do it? (Winding up in Places of Power Despite her Ineptitude)

    American Thinker ^ | 04/27/2017 | Robert Arvay
    One must wonder. How does Janet Napolitano do it? How does she continually wind up in places of power, despite her consistent reputation for ineptitude and corruption? While she was governor of Arizona, Napolitano requested increased federal border security for her state, a praiseworthy action. But later, while the head of Homeland Security, she actually opposed the same request made by her successor, Arizona governor Jan Brewer, even though Brewer's request was essentially identical to Napolitano's. Hypocrisy knows no bounds. In an extraordinary disconnect from practicality, Napolitano once proposed that the solution to airline hijacking was to require all passengers...

I just knew my “Gender Fluid” would be a big hit with the college crowd! Or if...

    Former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was hospitalized after a near-fatal “accidental overdose” of cancer medication, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. The University of California previously announced that 59-year-old, who has been serving as President, was hospitalized Jan. 18. Citing her privacy, the UC refused to reveal any details about the terrifying event, which occurred at the school’s President’s House in Alameda, CA., and called it a “complication” of her cancer battle. But a Radar investigation can reveal that Napolitano was unconscious for hours before a staffer discovered her body — and that an accidental overdose of her cancer medications was...

    The University of California says President Janet Napolitano, a former Homeland Security secretary and Arizona governor, is in the hospital due to side effects from cancer treatment. UC said she was diagnosed with cancer at the end of August and her treatment is almost complete. She has continued to work at "full capacity," according to the university, while undergoing the treatment. Due to side effects, she was hospitalized Monday and is expected to be discharged this week, UC officials said.

    Using a visa loophole to fire well-paid U.S. information technology workers and replace them with low-paid immigrants from India is despicable enough when it’s done by profit-making companies such as Southern California Edison and Walt Disney Co. But the latest employer to try this stunt sets a new mark in what might be termed “job laundering.” It’s the University of California. Experts in the abuse of so-called H-1B visas say UC is the first public university to send the jobs of American IT staff offshore. That’s not a distinction UC should wear proudly. UC is training software engineers at the...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | December 21, 2016 | Malcolm A. Kline
    While the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) made an attempt at an even-handed approach to the growing "Sanctuary Campus" movement, there is some evidence that there are campuses going well beyond the letter of the law. "We support the movement for sanctuary campuses," the AAUP averred in a statement published on November 22, 2016. "While colleges and universities must obey the law, administrations must make all efforts to guarantee the privacy of immigrant students and pledge not to grant access to information that might reveal their immigration status unless so ordered by a court of law." "Nor should colleges...

Terrorists who plan to bomb planes during the first seven hours of the eight-hour flight, however, should face no difficulties, provided they wait until after the complimentary beverage service has been concluded. How do they know Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab didn't wait until the end of the flight to try to...
  • Audit says California's biggest university so cash-hungry that it changed admissions standards

    The University of California System is frequently lauded as one of the best public-education systems in the world. But a scathing new state audit of the system tells a story of manipulation of admissions standards for financial gain, as the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The audit claims that the university knowingly admitted out-of-state-applicants with lower qualifications in an effort to boost income from increased tuition. "This report concludes that over the past several years, the university has undermined its commitment to resident students," the audit reads. "The university made substantial efforts to enroll nonresident students who pay significantly more tuition...

    I get paid to listen to people (mostly politicians) talk at length while saying as little as possible. They often hide behind mind-numbing words to obscure what they really mean. When I hear a politician promise "transparency," he or she most likely means it as much as Barack Obama meant that his vaunted "most transparent administration in history" would be forthcoming and accountable. When candidates talk up "comprehensive immigration reform," they don't want to reform immigration law; they want to gut immigration law. When pols talk about leadership, they're usually telling voters exactly what they want to hear. At a...

    Early this year, the University of California’s president, Janet Napolitano, asked all deans and department chairs in the university’s ten campuses to undergo training in overcoming their “implicit biases” toward women and minorities. The department heads also needed training, according to the UC president, in how to avoid committing microaggressions, those acts of alleged racism that are invisible to the naked eye. A more insulting and mindless exercise would be hard to imagine. But Napolitano’s seminar possesses a larger significance: it demolishes any remaining hope that college administrators possess a firmer grip on reality than the narcissistic students over whom...

    With the number of UC applicants at a new high, California residents faced tougher odds of gaining acceptance into next fall's freshman classes. A record number of students from other countries and states, meanwhile, received offers of admission.. About 60% of the 103,117 California applicants were offered a spot on at least one of UC's nine undergraduate campuses, according to university figures released Thursday. That appears to be a record low acceptance rate, down from about 63% of the 99,955 applicants last year, and about 79% in 1999, the oldest available systemwide figures. However, Stephen Handel, UC associate vice president...

Inspirational phrases such as “America is the land of opportunity,” “Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough,” “America is a melting pot,” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” are now being labeled “microaggressions” – any “brief, subtle verbal or non-verbal exchanges that send denigrating messages to the recipient because of his or her group membership (such as race, gender, age or socio-economic status).”...

    Janet Napolitano, the former governor of Arizona and Department of Homeland Security head, now the President the University of California system, has launched a new faculty training initiative. Part of the curriculum is a document titled "Recognizing Microaggressions and the Messages They Send." And it's worth some further evaluation. Here's the introductory paragraph: "Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership (from Diversity in the Classroom, UCLA Diversity & Faculty Development, 2014). The first step...

These so-called microaggressions – considered examples of subconscious racism – were presented at faculty leader training sessions held throughout the 2014-15 school year at nine of the 10 UC campuses. The sessions,...
