    Charles A. Murray ’65 spoke to Harvard affiliates at a Friday webinar about his new book, which criticizes the idea that race and gender are social constructs. Faculty in attendance criticized his work, saying it makes unfounded claims and is rooted in flawed methodology. Government preceptor David D. Kane invited Murray — whose work the Southern Poverty Law Center terms “racist pseudoscience” – to speak about his 2020 book “Human Diversity: The Biology of Gender, Race, and Class” as part of a lecture series entitled “Data Scientists, Data Professionals, Data Dissidents.” Murray said during the talk that many of Harvard’s...

    GASP! Who ever head of such a thing? A campus political organization endorsing the re-election of their party's president. Such was the outrage of the Harvard student newspaper, The Crimson, over the endorsement by the Harvard Republican Club of President Donald Trump for re-election. The Crimson's editorial, "Harvard Republicans Hail to the Chief," denouncing this endorsement sputtered with outrage over what they seem to consider a heinous act.

    Harvard CNN Analyst Claims ‘Russian Agents’ Were Inside Walter Reed Hospital With TrumpA Harvard professor has claimed, without providing a single shred of evidence, that Russian intelligence agents were able to gain access to Walter Reed hospital where President Trump recovered from coronavirus over the weekend. Juliette Kayyem, who is also a regular CNN analyst, declared that it is “very likely” that Russian spies were there to gather information about Trump’s condition. Kayyem, a senior lecturer in international security at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, tweeted out the bizarre proclamation along with “#doctorslietoo”. It is very likely that Russian intelligence...

    Harvard could not have picked a worse choice. The Future of Diplomacy Project at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs announced last week that Saeb Erekat will serve as a Fisher Family Fellow for the upcoming 2020-21 academic year. Erekat is a Palestinian diplomat, who’s held various senior posts within the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority. As a Fisher Family Fellow, Erekat will mentor students and give virtual seminars, and will presumably impart his knowledge and expertise on the state of Palestinian affairs and its international relations, including those it maintains with Israel.

  • Dems Have Taken Advantage of the Black Vote for a Long Time – and Rapper Ice Cube Has Had Enough

    Following the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention, rapper Ice Cube took to Twitter to remind his followers that the Democratic Party failed to explain how they would help the black community. Instead of instantly giving a vote to those with a 'D' behind their name, Ice Cube said politicians have to "earn the vote" from members of the black community. "What I didn't hear is, what's in it for us? What's in it for the black community besides the same ol' thang we've been getting from these parties?" he asked. "What's in it for us, for real?" Instead of...

    The DOJ accused Yale University on Thursday of discriminating against Asian and White applicants in its admissions process. In 2019, Harvard University went to trial over allegations that it had discriminated against Asian applicants in its admissions process, ultimately prevailing against charges of discrimination. According to a report by the New York Times, Yale is currently facing an investigation by the Justice Department over practices that the government alleges are discriminatory against Asian-Americans and White Americans. In a letter sent to Yale, assistant attorney general Eric S. Dreiband claimed that Yale data suggests that Asian and White applicants have a...
  • 20% Of Harvard’s First-Year Class Has Deferred

    08/07/2020 9:20:06 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 25 replies
    According to an email sent by Harvard and as reported in The Chronicle of Higher Education this morning, 340 first-year students have chosen to defer. Using estimates from Harvard’s reported class of 2023 – which counted 1,650 matriculates – this means that roughly 20% of first-year students have deferred from the top-ranked university in the country. Harvard had also anticipated 40% of their undergraduate population choosing to live on campus; they now expect only 25% based on the number of students who have accepted the invitation to do so. If these are the numbers for Harvard, it’s going to be...

    Congress wrote to the nation’s top universities on Monday demanding they hand over all records of donations they have accepted from foreign governments and rogue regimes, citing concerns that the multimillion-dollar gifts are a growing national security threat, The Post can reveal. The letters obtained by The Post were sent to the presidents of six of the country’s leading colleges — including Harvard, NYU and Yale — after a Department of Education investigation this year found American universities had accepted $6.4 billion of hidden foreign donations. The University of Chicago, the University of Delaware, Harvard University, New York University, the...

    A trove of documents released late Thursday could shed light on Ghislaine Maxwell’s relationship with the late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The data include records of a 2011 meeting between accuser Virginia Giuffre and her lawyers where she talked about the powerful people in Epstein’s orbit who she said either flew on his private Boeing 727 or stayed on his private island in the Caribbean. One of the names mentioned was that of former President Bill Clinton. At one point in the conversation, the subject turned to Epstein’s powerful friends. Jack Scarola, one of Giuffre’s lawyers, asked...

    The far-left and oh-so esteemed New Yorker magazine published a lie so massive it beggars belief — even in this, the era of fake news. In the latest edition, Harvard professor and frequent New Yorker contributor Jill Lepore got away with publishing the following (in an effort to combat this ongoing epidemic, I do not link fake news)… One study suggests that two-thirds of Americans between the ages of fifteen and thirty-four who were treated in emergency rooms suffered from injuries inflicted by police and security guards, about as many people as the number of pedestrians injured by motor vehicles....

    Charlie Kirk is leading an effort to redirect big money away from colleges that are functioning as left-wing propaganda mills rather than providing an actual educational experience. The founder and president of Turning Point USA calls this initiative for donors to vote with their wallets by closing them “Divest U.” In an interview on Fox and Friends on Saturday, host Jedediah Bila noted that Divest U, Turning Point’s partnership with Prager U, has already redirected $7 million away from Harvard and Baylor. Kirk implied to Bila that the results of radical, anti-America, anti-free speech indoctrination throughout the country’s so-called institutions...

    A parrot called Griffin has humiliated students at Harvard University, as well as local children, by beating them in a memory test. Harvard researchers compared human memory skills with those of the African grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus) – an animal separated from humans by more than 300 million years of evolution. They compared how 21 Harvard undergraduates and 21 six-to-eight-year-old children performed against the 22-year-old bird Griffin in several rounds of a classic shell game. The game required mentally tracking the locations of fluffy pom-poms hidden under cups that swapped places a number of times. Griffin's accuracy was comparable to,...

    Many American colleges and universities are considering virtual or hybrid education models for the upcoming Fall semester, due to the COVID-19 precautions. Enter the Immigration Customs and Enforcement Agency (ICE), which announced Tuesday that, if schools opt to cancel in-person classes, their international students will be forced to leave the U.S. in the midst of a global pandemic. According to statistics from the 2018-2019 school year, over 1 million international students will be impacted by the policy. Students and professors alike immediately denounced the xenophobic, harmful decision — and now, universities are using lawsuits and new learning models to fight...

    I just want to revisit this story from 2013, when a Massachussetts liberal professor, Noel Ignatiev, called for white men to commit suicide. Here is a link to the story. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2013/11/25/liberal-professor-tells-white-male-students-commit-suicide-benefit-so Professor Ignatiev was simply articulating the values of the Democratic Party, with more honesty than most Democrat politicians and DNC strategists. Here is what he said: "...If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex...

    Is the multicultural campaign really about diversity? Or is it about stamping out Western civilization and the "white race" itself? College students will tell you that a university education today is a guilt trip for whites. The purpose is to prevent whites from appreciating and absorbing their own culture, and to make it difficult for whites to resist the unreasonable demands (quotas, reparations, etc.) from "people of color." To the questions, "Who am I? What am I?" the white university graduate answers, "a racist, sexist, homophobic oppressor." Neither parents, trustees, alumni nor the public are aware of the anti-white...

But the Republican National Committee, which according to Politico has been keeping tabs on its electors, has found no defectors except for Christopher Suprun, a Texas elector who has publicly announced his intention not to support Trump. ... there's little evidence that these entreaties might result in the kind of large-scale coordination that would be required to deny Trump the presidency.

    Harvard University has announced it will implement online learning for all courses during the coming academic year, while tuition for the Ivy League school will remain about $50,000. Up to 40 percent of undergraduate students will be cleared to live on campus this fall, including all incoming freshmen, according to a statement posted Monday on Harvard’s website. All Harvard seniors will be allowed to return to campus in the spring semester, with freshmen returning home. However, even those students who choose to live on campus will be required to take part in online instruction.

Let’s start with President Kennedy. Just for starters, he...
