  • Harvard students erupt at scholar’s claim in thesis (Richwine again)

    Boston Globe ^ | May 18, 2013 | Meghan E. Irons
    Harvard students, outraged over a doctoral dissertation arguing that Hispanic immigrants lack “raw cognitive ability or intelligence,” this week urged the university to investigate how the thesis came to be approved and to ban future research on racial superiority. The students presented 1,200 signatures to president Drew Faust and the dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government, David Ellwood. “Academic freedom and a reasoned debate are essential to our academic community,” the petition said. “However, the Harvard Kennedy School cannot ethically stand behind academic work advocating a national policy of exclusion and advancing an agenda of discrimination.” …

    Republic of Texas ^ | 2/27/13 | Charles C. Johnson.
    In his 1978 Harvard University honors thesis, current treasury secretary nominee and White House chief of staff Jacob “Jack” Lew wrote that Social Security payments should be a guaranteed right, regardless of whether the program’s “trust fund” contains enough money to distribute to beneficiaries. And progressive income taxes, he argued — not payroll taxes — should be used to fund the program to the point where America would guarantee benefit payments beyond what taxpayers have paid into the system. “Old age and Medicare benefits are guaranteed as a matter of right,” he noted, “even though many recipients draw more benefits...

    Today, the White House defended its decision to host rapper Common despite more opposition from the New Jersey State Police. The show will go on. But some Americans (including myself) have asked what was Michelle Obama thinking inviting a woman-bashing, cop-hating, Bush-burning, Black Panther sympathizing rapper to a poetry reading at the White House? It's a fair question since we are paying her husband's salary and housing the family until at least 2012. Michelle has left us a written record of her feelings, thoughts and philosophy from her early days as a student at Princeton. Perhaps revisiting the First Lady's...

    Criticizing Islam may get you a court summons in Canada. But calling the Jews “privileged racists” who intentionally exploit the memory of the Holocaust to generate political power may just get you a graduate degree. The University of Toronto has come under heavy criticism for accepting a master’s thesis from an anti-Israel activist that accuses the Jewish community of deliberately using Holocaust-remembrance programs to create a false impression of Jewish victimhood, in order to make it easier for Jews to push “racist” and “apartheid” policies in Israel: The thesis, titled “The Victimhood of the Powerful: White Jews, Zionism and the...

    Obviously, there's been lots of talk about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan in numerous areas. There have been various reports concerning Kagan's supposed views on copyright, but those seem pretty blown out of proportion from what I've seen and in talking to folks who know Kagan. She was a big supporter of the Berkman Center at Harvard, but that was part of her job. Other than her recommendation in the Cablevision case, there doesn't seem to be much to go on. In fact, I'm considerably more concerned with the idea that one of the leading contenders for Kagan's current job...

    The Washington Post published an article, bringing up a thesis that McDonnell wrote in 1989 while in law school. The thesis contained some rather incendiary language, and the Rag jumped on him for it. It painted him as an extremist who will impose a theocracy on the Commonwealth, replete with the worst kind of fear mongering. Deeds himself has been hammering McDonnell over this thesis, with a seemingly endless stream of attack ads. And despite the rhetoric from the Democrats (remember then-Senator Obama's position on attack ads when he had a comfortable lead in the 2008 campaign?) on how ineffective...

Inquiring people have sought a copy of this thesis to no avail. Columbia says it cannot be found; Barack Obama says he lost it. How likely is that a person so impressed with himself that he writes an autobiography just a few years later would "lose" his senior thesis? After all, a Presidential Library must be filled.

    The latest report on Obama's missing thesis comes from MSNBC. Written his senior year at Columbia University, Obama's thesis was about Soviet nuclear disarmament. It's only natural to wonder what the budding socialist turned presidential candidate thought of nuclear proliferation in the early 1980s. The Obama campaign, proving every bit as secretive as the Office of the Vice President, has been less than forthcoming with details. "Spokesman Ben LaBolt wouldn’t even say whether Sen. Obama threw out his copy or lost it." At an earlier date, an aide actually told the New Republic the junior senator couldn't recall what he...

    Hillary Clinton’s political methods were founded on the theories of a 1960s radical about whom she wrote her college thesis in 1969. It may take a village to raise a child, but Clinton’s college thesis seems to say that the village politicos need an enemy to mobilize against. She titled the paper, written to fulfill her Bachelor of Arts degree at Wellesley College, “There is Only the Fight.” It praises the work of radical activist Saul Alinsky, a man who epitomized a self-interested no-holds barred campaign style that Hillary has emulated in later years. Clinton’s savvy-but-ruthless politics, including the “politics...

    IS THE WOMAN WHO HID HILLARY CLINTON'S MAGICALLY APPEARING THESIS GETTING HER ORDERS FROM CLINTON-MACHINE LAWYERS? by Mia T, 3.04.07 After the call from the White House, Wellesley's president, Nannerl Overholser Keohane, consulted with lawyers and closed access to any thesis written by a U.S. president or first lady, a rule affecting only Hillary D. Rodham's thesis. Keohane moved on later that year to be president of Duke University, and now is a visiting professor at Princeton, where she teaches political philosophy, leadership and feminist theory. An Arkansan who was eight years ahead of Hillary Rodham at Wellesley, Keohane...

    Hillary D. Rodham's (Clinton) senior thesis at Wellesley college was about the radical leftist agitator, Saul D. Alinsky. In her (Rodham's) paper, she accepted Alinsky's view that the problem of the poor isn't so much a lack of money as a lack of power. She also accepted his view of federal anti-poverty programs as ineffective. Alinsky felt the War on Poverty was a “prize piece of political pornography.” Rodham wrote in reference to the War on Poverty, “A cycle of dependency has been created which ensnares its victims into resignation and apathy.” There you have it, what Republicans have been...

    WELLESLEY, Mass. — The senior thesis of Hillary D. Rodham, Wellesley College class of 1969, has been speculated about, spun, analyzed, debated, criticized and defended. But rarely has it been read, because for the eight years of Bill Clinton’s presidency it was locked away. As forbidden fruit, the writings of a 21-year-old college senior, examining the tactics of radical community organizer Saul D. Alinsky, have gained mythic status among her critics — a “Rosetta Stone,” in the words of one, that would allow readers to decode the thinking of the former first lady and 2008 presidential candidate. Despite the fervent...

    I have tried for weeks to obtain a copy of a certain Harvard graduate's senior thesis. The thesis was written about in the Harvard Gazettte, so I inquired and submitted several requests. Today, I get a snailmail letter from the Harvard Library explaining they cannot forward me a copy of the thesis for five years without the authors permission.I and another, have emailed the author several times with no response. This whole process seems like a 'run-around'. Does anyone know another way to obtain a thesis?
