An anonymous letter reportedly sent to Harvard University this week alleges that the school’s DEI head committed multiple instances of plagiarism throughout her academic career, even plagiarizing from one of her husband’s academic works. The letter, sent anonymously to Harvard, the University of Michigan and University of Wisconsin-Madison, alleged that chief diversity and inclusion officer Sherri Ann Charleston committed 40 instances of plagiarism over the years, according to the Washington Free Beacon. The Free Beacon first reported on the complaint, describing the details of how Charleston allegedly committed these counts of plagiarism, including not properly attributing sources or quotes almost a dozen times in her 2009 dissertation at Michigan.

In the immortal words of Tom Lehrer: "Plagiarize, let no one else's work evade your eyes...for that is why the good Lord made your don't shade your eyes but plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize...only always be sure to call it...research." (NOTE: Lehrer himself is a Harvard graduate and still alive at 95!)

You cannot ask for much more in a DEI officer. They were given the job so that they could promote racism and lowered standards. Why does anyone expect them to be any better than the people they pick to fulfill their DEI needs.

No need to look her up, your guess is correct. Not really a surprise, is it? But she did her 'dissertation' though she did not understand much of what she wrote. That's probably how she got her BA and MA as well. How raciss' to say that, well, that's the way it goes when one discovers how many of her brethren did it and got away with it.

They're handing out PhD's these days like cheap candy to the last batch of kids on Halloween. Those of us who've gone through the "meat grinder" through graduate school realize that the "crimes" committed here by Claudine Gay and now Sheri Ann Charleston are either gross failures of each candidate's Doctoral Board, or blatant complicity. A look "beneath the covers" here may well expose the self-serving interest of the leftist-humanist, anti-white, anti-Christian "cultura" prevalent on most of American campuses today. No doubt a "factory" of sorts has been created with the sole purpose of conferring as many Doctoral Degrees as possible to "people of color" in order to scale up an image of "intellect," while simultaneously obscuring the fact they hold a useless piece of paper in a subject no one cares about. They've created out of thin air something they claim mankind can't live without, but, wherever it's applied, people are unable to live WITH it. Fire them ALL.

Chances are in the 100% range that she also "earned" her doctorate through plagiarism and that allowed her to land her useless job. The solution to their problem would be to hire non-black DEI officers but that is a huge conflict of their interest, no? I'm beginning to think that we should just let this huge scam run its' course and the whole thing will collapse but then again, it's academia, so they will probably never learn.

There's a long-running meme on the internet that shows a mother turning around in a car and shouting at her kid, "Why can't you just be normal." He responds by shrieking uncontrollably. That's Joe Biden. Why can't this dude just be normal? On that note, it's Thursday, February 1st, and the president is currently wandering around Michigan saying weird stuff again. He's like an escaped nursing home patient. (X) I'm not an expert on senility, but I suspect a common symptom is a person continually saying the same incoherent things over and over. How many times has Biden delivered that line about deer in Kevlar vests?
Agenda 2030 and the Path Toward World Government 10 replies

Agenda 2030, the United Nation’s formal plan for the creation of a new world government, contains 91 sections. It begins with the following vacuous but revealing words: “This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.” This cliché-ridden pap begins the exposition of Agenda 2030, developed by the UN to introduce a world government devoid of the concepts of rights, liberty, life and happiness.

Old Joe Biden has just articulated what many Americans wish were true: he referred to Donald Trump as “a sitting president.” That term is applied to the person who is president now, so the question is inevitable: does Old Joe even know that he’s ostensibly the president of the United States? Biden said it Saturday at a campaign stop in Columbia, S.C., in the midst of touting his catastrophic economy as if it were something in which he could take pride. “In recent weeks,” he claimed, “we’re starting to see real evidence that American consumers are facing real confidence in their economy we’re building.” Yeah, that’s what he said:

On Friday, Americans learned that illegal crossings along the U.S. southern border reached an all-time high in December 2023, with a whopping 249,785 arrests. That number is up 31 percent from the December 2022 total of 222,018, also an all-time high. Those arrests are crossings we know about. The actual number of people who have no business being in the United States is undoubtedly much higher. But in an election year, the fact that liberalism is all about emotions and how you feel versus what is best for the country is on full display. The results of a new poll are bearing that out. (X)

This is why the Biden administration has John Kirby handle the big boy briefings. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre appeared on MSNBC Monday morning without her ever-present binder to talk about Sunday’s deadly drone attack on U.S. troops in Jordan and the result was predictably embarrassing for the nation . Three U.S. troops were killed and several dozen wounded in the drone attack early Sunday local time on a base in Jordan near the border with Syria that was likely by the Iran-backed Islamic Resistance of Iraq, though the group took responsibility for three nearby attacks in Syria on Sunday but not the attack in Jordan.

He had some severe and scary incoherent moments. But perhaps the worst thing was when he freaked out and started screaming about President Donald Trump and the "suckers" and "losers" hoax, claiming that Trump refused to go to a cemetery that included WWII American soldiers in France. That was untrue; it was a visit canceled because of bad weather and several advisors debunked the claim about "suckers" and "losers." During his rant,

At around 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, officers took Kelvin Servat Arocha, 19, and Wilson Juarez, 21, into custody. All four suspects were released hours later with no bail.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Thursday issued an executive order that targets Israeli settlers in the West Bank who have been accused of attacking Palestinians in the occupied territory, imposing financial sanctions and visa bans in an initial round against four individuals. Those settlers were involved in acts of violence, as well as threats and attempts to destroy or seize Palestinian property, according to the order. The penalties aim to block the four from using the U.S. financial system and bar American citizens from dealing with them. U.S. officials said they were evaluating whether to punish others involved in attacks that have intensified during the Israel-Hamas war.

The high court decided in favor of Oregon Secretary of State LaVonne Griffin-Valade, who had disqualified the senators from running for office again after voters approved a measure in 2022 to amend the state constitution to ban lawmakers with more than 10 unexcused absences from running again.

Ten Republican senators in Oregon cannot run for reelection, the state’s top court ruled on Feb. 1. The court found that the senators are banned from running for reelection under a constitutional amendment approved in 2022. Measure 113, the amendment, states that lawmakers who miss at least 10 legislative days without an excuse cannot seek reelection.The ruling upheld a decision from Oregon Secretary of State LaVonne Griffin-Valade, a Democrat. Ms. Griffin-Valade said in 2023 that the senators, under the measure, could not try for another term. “My decision honors the voters’ intent by enforcing the measure the way it was commonly understood when Oregonians added it to our state constitution,”
