    A Rhodes Scholarship recipient who previously insisted that she grew up poor, abused, and underprivileged is said to have lost her scholarship after it was discovered she lied about her background. A Wednesday report from the Daily Mail stated that 24-year-old Mackenzie Fierceton grew up in a $750,000 home in Missouri with her mother — a doctor — and attended a $30,000/year private high school. What are the details? Fierceton claimed in her application essay to Philadelphia's University of Pennsylvania that she survived abuse and foster care and overcame adversity by putting her education at the forefront of her priorities....
  • Defeat Law of the Sea Treaty -- Again

    05/16/2012 6:28:36 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | May 16, 2012 | Phyllis Schlafly
    The stunning repudiation of Sen. Richard Lugar's, R-Ind., bid for a seventh term has sent shock waves through Washington's internationalist lobby. A former Rhodes Scholar, Lugar has spent his career promoting a globalist agenda, since he succeeded the late Jesse Helms as the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. One day after Indiana Republicans handed Lugar his walking papers, an outfit called the Atlantic Council held a forum to promote the discredited Law of the Sea Treaty. As former Republican U.S. Sens. Chuck Hagel and John Warner beamed their approval, Obama's Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta declared that...

    Police arrested a Rhodes Scholar from Georgia Tech at this week’s Jewish-led Never Again Action protest at the Atlanta Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office. In a guest column, Calvin Runnels, a native of Baton Rouge, explains why he protested and why more Americans ought to join him. (He and another activist were charged with disorderly contact under a city ordinance during Monday’s protest, which drew more than 100 people.) Runnels graduated Tech last year with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry. One of 32 Rhodes Scholars in 2018, he is pursuing postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford. He is...

    Eric Greitens stormed into the governor’s office in January 2017 vowing to clean up a state government he said was corrupt. He resigned Tuesday just as abruptly as he had arrived on Missouri's political scene, his career buried under an avalanche of scandal and felony charges. Mike Parson, 63, a fellow Republican and former sheriff who served 11 years in the General Assembly before being elected as lieutenant governor in 2016, will take over as Missouri’s 57th governor. He’ll finish Greitens’ term, which runs until January 2021. A Rhodes scholar and former Navy SEAL, Greitens was once considered one of...
  • Adm. Stansfield Turner, who led major CIA overhaul as director of central intelligence, dies at 94

    Retired Navy Adm. Stansfield Turner, the iconoclastic director of the Central Intelligence Agency in the late 1970s who significantly reorganized its clandestine ranks and helped usher in a new technological age at the agency, died Jan. 18 at his home in Seattle. He was 94. His secretary, Pat Moynihan, confirmed the death but did not disclose the cause. An Oxford-educated Rhodes scholar, Adm. Turner was long considered to be one of the Navy’s sharpest analytical minds and brashly confident leaders. He was a four-star admiral and commander of NATO forces in Southern Europe when he was tapped in 1977 by...

    If Eric Greitens sent you his résumé, you wouldn’t believe it. But maybe you have some time to kill and figure why not call him up, go to his home in Missouri, and catch him in a lie. “Very impressive resume, Mr. Greitens. A Navy SEAL and a Rhodes Scholar? Sure buddy, and I’m Mother Teresa … oh, so now you’ve worked with Mother Teresa …” Eric Greitens The conversation could go on like this for hours. You’d hear how he spent his Duke University years tending to victims of poverty and genocide from Calcutta to Rwanda, that after Oxford...

    Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice went beyond the talking points she was given on the terrorist attack in Libya when she appeared on Sunday talk shows shortly after the Sept. 11 attack. Ayotte, along with five other senators, met with Rice on the Hill this week to discuss her reaction to the attack, which left four Americans dead. Ayotte said she was “very troubled” by what she heard, noting specifically that Rice had read the classified intelligence briefings saying that al-Qaida was behind the attack and did not mention that in her television appearances. Ayotte also...

    Democrats have waxed apoplectic -- or rather they have pretended to wax apoplectic -- over the allegation that someone in the Bush White House supposedly leaked the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame, in retaliation for her husband Joseph C. Wilson IV 's activities as a fiercely partisan anti-war propagandist. Whoever leaked Madam Plame's identity should be jailed, say the spinmeisters. "According to Section 421a of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, the unauthorized identification of a CIA operative is a criminal act punishable by up to ten years in federal prison," states an indignant press release from Democratic Senator Charles...

    Wesley Clark, genius -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: September 26, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 I keep hearing how smart Gen. Wesley Clark is. I hear he's a Rhodes scholar. I hear he can read a novel in 20 minutes. I hear he graduated first in his class at West Point. I hear he's a genius. But I keep hearing him say the dumbest things. Here's one example. On June 15, he was interviewed by Tim Russert on NBC's "Meet the Press." Asked about President Bush's tax cuts, here's what he said: Well, first of all, they were not efficient in...

Hackworth With Wesley Clark joining the Democratic presidential candidates, there are enough eager bodies pointed toward the White House to make up a rifle squad. This bunch of wannabes could make things increasingly hot for Dubya – as long as they don't blow each other away with friendly fire. Since Clark tossed his steel pot into the inferno, I've been constantly asked, "Hack, what do you think of the general?" For the record, I never served with Clark. But after spending three hours interviewing...

    The Associated Press KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Sept. 13 — Retired Army Gen. Wesley Clark, sensing growing support for a Democratic presidential bid, said Saturday he is days away from announcing a decision and launched into an attack on President Bush.In a half-hour speech to 1,000 cheering Democrats in heavily Republican East Tennessee, Clark said Bush has failed the country on health care, education and foreign policy. "The No. 1 responsibility of the commander in chief is what? The safety and security of the United States of America," Clark said, questioning the administration's efforts to avoid the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks."What...

Clark could be seen on the Cable News Network as a “military expert” criticizing the Bush Administration. A quick victory in Iraq “was not going to happen,” he told viewers on March 25, shortly  before the quickest blitzkrieg victory of its size in military history occurred.  But his words doubtless brought comfort to the fans of a...
