    Laurence Tribe explains why Congress should aim to work at three speeds. On this week’s Amicus, Dahlia Lithwick spoke to Laurence Tribe, professor of constitutional law at Harvard, about some of the legal questions the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s behavior has brought up. A portion of that conversation, which has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity, is below. Dahlia Lithwick: We’ve had quite anxious listener mail this week saying, what does Congress do? What teeth can Congress put into a system where essentially the nihilist argument has been made—“I spit on your system, your system does not...

    Earlier this month a judge determined that Harvard’s admissions practices did not discriminate against Asian applicants. The lawsuit which led to that decision was filed by a group called Students for Fair Admissions. SFFA hired an expert who looked closely at Harvard’s process and discovered something curious. While Asian students score the highest of any group on academics and extra-curricular activities, they score consistently lower than other groups on Harvard’s personality score.The lead attorney who worked on the lawsuit, Adam K. Mortara, was invited to speak about the decision at Harvard last week. He argued that the judge had...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | October 16, 2019 | Roger Clegg
    In a long-awaited decision, federal trial judge Allison Burroughs has ruled that, while Harvard does consider a student’s race in determining who gets in and who doesn’t (“the use of race in and of itself is admitted”), nonetheless Harvard is not breaking the law. That outcome was not surprising, and the judge’s opinion is unlikely to change many minds or alter the case’s expected trajectory to the Supreme Court. Judge Burroughs found that “Race is only intentionally considered as a positive attribute.” But if race is a positive attribute for favored groups, then does it not follow that it is...

    A federal judge has ruled that Harvard does not discriminate against Asian Americans in its admissions process. The plaintiffs in the case presented evidence that Harvard’s “personal” scoring of individual applicants tended to be decidedly lower for otherwise high-achieving Asian students than for other racial groups. From a NY Times opinion piece I wrote about last June: Harvard evaluated applicants on the extent to which they possessed the following traits: likability, helpfulness, courage, kindness, positive personality, people like to be around them, the person is widely respected. Asian-Americans, who had the highest scores in both the academic and extracurricular...

    Harvard University broke their silence and admitted that they've received money over a ten-year-period from Jeffrey Epstein. The disgraced financier who is convicted for crimes such as pedophilia and infamous sex-trafficking network still has his past under review despite the fact that he's already dead. He is known to have given donations and funding to foundations and companies as a philanthropist. Harvard's President Larry Bacow finally acknowledges the university's connection to Epstein. They have admitted to receiving a donation that sums up to $9 million from Epstein himself and his foundation. This comes from a letter to the community that...
  • Harvard received $8.9M from Jeffrey Epstein (made him Visiting Fellow in Dept of Psychology)

    Harvard accepted $8.9M from Jeffrey Epstein — but no money after the pedophile’s 2008 guilty plea. Epstein was also made a Visiting Fellow in Harvard's Department of Psychology in 2005 at the urging of former faculty member Stephen Kosslyn. The news follows revelations that Epstein donated $7.5M to MIT — money MIT pocketed after, and despite, his pleading guilty to soliciting sex from an underage girl. “We are seeking to learn more about the nature of that appointment from Dr. Kosslyn, who no longer works at the University,” Harvard president Lawrence S. Bacow said in an email to students, alumni...

    Establishment media outlets like The Washington Post hyped a now-disputed study that linked President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies to a spike in hate crimes, but they’ve yet to cover a second study that debunked the first one. The first study, which three Texas university professors conducted, said counties that hosted Trump rallies in 2016 saw a 226% spike in hate crimes compared to places that didn’t host Trump rallies. Harvard University researchers found the political scientists had gotten it wrong when they tried to replicate the study. “The study is wrong, and yet journalists ran with it anyway,” Harvard researchers Matthew Lilley...

    Another bombshell from The New Yorker by Ronan Farrow centering on a famous man accused of sexual misconduct has resulted in the resignation of an important figure at the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Current Time 0:35 Duration 0:45 Report: Trump’s Personal Assistant, Madeleine Westerhout, Resigns A day after publishing a piece detailing allegations that the MIT Media Lab "had a deeper fund-raising relationship with [Jeffrey] Epstein than it has previously acknowledged" and "attempted to conceal the extent of its contacts with him," the director of the media lab resigned. Farrow reported the resignation in an update to his...

    An incoming Harvard University freshman who was deported to Lebanon last month over social media posts arrived at the Ivy League institution just in time for the start of class on Tuesday, his relatives said. The family of Ismail B. Ajjawi said the 17-year-old Palestinian student arrived Monday in Cambridge after he was barred from entering the US at Boston Logan International Airport on Aug. 23 following a search of his phone and laptop by a Customs and Border Protection officer, the Harvard Crimson reported.

    Ismail Ajjawi, a Palestinian student denied entry to the United States last month at the airport in Boston, was allowed to enter the country on Monday and was at Harvard in time for the beginning of classes, according to Amideast, the group that sponsored him. Amideast said in a statement that the United States Embassy in Beirut had reviewed Mr. Ajjawi’s case and reissued a visa. Harvard officials confirmed that Mr. Ajjawi was on campus. Mr. Ajjawi, 17, landed at Logan International Airport in Boston on Aug. 23 and was turned back after immigration officials objected to his friends’ social...

    Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe unleashed an unhinged attack on President Trump and his supporters Wednesday after the commander in chief said he was considering an executive action that would end the practice of "birthright citizenship." "This fuxxxng racist wants to reverse the outcome of the Civil War," Tribe claimed. He was referring to the 14th Amendment, which is often cited by media figures as a Constitutional guarantee to citizenship for anyone – including children of illegal immigrants – born in the United States.

    Speaking at the White House, Trump lamented that US involvement in the country for 18 years, which he described as more of a "police force," is "ridiculous," and repeated a claim that the US "could win that war in a week if we wanted to" but that he does not "want to kill 10 million people, 10 million Afghans ... because that's what would have to happen and I'm not looking to do that." Trump said the US is "bringing some of our troops back but we have to have a presence." The area "does seem to be the Harvard...

    Tribe first said that Trump should be impeached for inciting violent acts, then took it a step further and outright accused the president of the United States of terrorism. “How many more people have to DIE violent deaths at racist hands before impeaching the president for inciting white nationalist terrorism and violence is taken as seriously as impeaching him for obstructing justice? The real national emergency is Donald J. Trump’s terrorism,” Tribe tweeted Sunday morning.

    Plans to test a technique that would cool the planet by blocking sunlight are one step closer to reality. Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has created an external advisory panel to examine the potential ethical, environmental and geopolitical impacts of this geoengineering project, which has been developed by the university’s researchers. Known as the Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx), the project would involve the release of calcium carbonate particles from a steerable balloon some 20 kilometres above the southwestern United States.

    Noted author, Harvard law professor, and critic of President Trump, Laurence Tribe offered his disparaging opinion of the Wednesday Robert Mueller hearings saying, "Much as I hate to say it, this morning’s hearing was a disaster." "Far from breathing life into his damning report, the tired Robert Mueller sucked the life out of it," he continued. "The effort to save democracy and the rule of law from this lawless president has been set back, not advanced." His criticism comes amid the former special counsel's appearances before both the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees, which have received criticism due to...

    Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein socialized with the rich and powerful, harboring a sordid hidden life that came to light in 2008, landing him in prison for the solicitation of underage girls for sex. Epstein was infamous for his private Boeing 727 airliner nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” which ferried guests including Bill Clinton and a bevy of young girls allegedly pressed into prostitution at his Caribbean estate dubbed “Orgy Island.” His laughable 13-month sentence after being accused by more than 40 minor girls of sexual abuse is a testament to his connections in high places. Those guests included the aforementioned former...

    This week Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the February 2018 Parkland school shooting in Florida, announced that Harvard had rescinded his admission. The reason—past racist comments he had allegedly made in private texts leaked to the media. Predictably, the Right reacted with shock and outrage. Many lamented the fact that a 19-year-old and the survivor of a mass shooting wasn’t shown a shred of mercy by the Harvard bigwigs for benign comments he made when he was 16 years of age.It’s worth explaining why someone who’s committed one of the most egregious sins of our era—bigotry should be shown some scrupulousness...
