There are persons who constantly clamor. They complain of oppression, speculation, and pernicious influence of wealth. They cry out loudly against all banks and corporations, and a means by which small capitalists become united in order to produce important and beneficial results. They carry on mad hostility against all established institutions. They would choke the fountain of industry and dry all streams.
Unsurprisingly, Biden and Co. have again delayed issuing new federal regulations – first called for by President Trump – that would apply the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism to civil rights investigations, something lawmakers and advocates have long said would help protect Jewish students from anti-Semite discrimination and harassment in America’s universities.
So, it seems that Jewish students will have to stay in hiding, lest they face harassment, antisemitism, and endangerment of the collegiate careers and financial future – and, in some cases, face threats to their health and life.
It’s a sick thing that, under Biden and the Democrats, 2023 America is looking more and more like 1933 Germany.
There’s no forgiveness for Biden. Specifically, there’s no ill-conceived and illegal student loan forgiveness for him and whichever group of his handlers had him sign the Executive Order to cancel approximately $400 billion in voluntarily incurred student loan debt. His or their plan to buy a plethora of 2024 votes with federal monies is essentially dead in the water at this point.
First a federal judge in Texas blocked it. Then, just a days later and regarding a separate suit against Biden, a unanimous ruling by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis blocked it again via injunction. Most likely, if the Texas ruling goes for appeal, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals will do as the 8th did. Even if they don’t, however, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals’ injunction against it will still stand until that Court reaches a final decision in State of Nebraska v. Joseph Biden, Jr..
😉 It’s dead, Joe. Shuffle away and forget about it.
Certain sorts are complaining that underrepresented minority (URM) – yes, that’s now a term in college circles – students are facing invisible barriers in public colleges which prevent them from getting or completing the degrees that they want. And those invisible barriers are grades. And this, of course, is racist and needs to be addressed.
Let’s start with the fact that minorities are most likely not underrepresented, if enrollment figures have maintained the rates that they had for a long time. A five-year average showed that 4.98% of Whites, 6.22% of Blacks, and 4.1% of Latinos enrolled in college each year. So, that pretty much throws the Underrepresented Minority (URM) into the trash heap where all such lies belong.
But that “invisible barrier” to minority students is hardly invisible at all. It’s in plain sight, like all or most actual scholastic requirements in colleges, especially large public universities. They do gate off popular majors, limiting them out of necessity to those students with the best GPAs in prerequisite courses for those respective majors. These grade requirements conserve the various departments’ limited resources by acting as a winnowing tool, which makes sure that the strongest students enter those majors and lower-performing students are directed to other majors that the universities’ faculties believe they can better handle.
“I got in here,” she [Gonzales] told me this summer, which she spent finishing her degree in a different major. “I did the application. I did the essays. I was accepted. But then there was another admissions process I didn’t even know about. It was like running a race with one leg.”
It’s quite simple really. When competing for resources, those who can show that they will make the best use of those resources will gain them and those that don’t show that won’t get them. If minorities can’t successfully compete – a falsehood, judging by UC Berkely’s graduates demographic figures – it’s neither the universities faults nor their “problem” to solve.
Most certainly, the growing trend of using “holistic” means of judging a major candidates’ worthiness to claim one of the seats in a college/major, is not a means that provides true benefit. It just ends up lowering the bar, but only for certain classes of applicant.
The real reasons for Biden spending between $300 – $500 billion of the taxpayers’ money to nullify a large amount of student loan debt are quite simple. One, it’s the largest purchase of votes for the Democrat party in history. Two, Biden’s handlers know that they have to bolsters colleges, which are the greatest source of liberal indoctrination in America.
This about sums up the rank and malodorous hypocrisy of Freshman Economics as it is now taught in the reeking cesspits of Leftism that are the vast majority of what are called colleges and universities in America.
Then, this is what had to happen since we allowed these institutions to degenerate to the point that they effectively and tacitly, though rarely overtly, run all professorial candidates and all course syllabi through their departments of Intersectionality, Gender, and Racial Justice for preapproval.
