Require the Morally Corrupt University Presidents to Lead the Resurrection of Campus Sanity

Rather than fire any of the university presidents, have them declare “I do not tolerate students marching in favor of genocide”



Everyone seems to be piling it on the presidents of Harvard University, MIT, and the University of Pennsylvania. From many quarters, people are calling for the resignation of these university presidents and the UPenn president already has resigned. And why not? On video, they have shown a moral relativism that is repugnant.

Think about it. If students marching and calling for the genocide of Jews is not grounds for expulsion, then what is? Or, to alternatively frame the situation, suppose that these students marched and called for the extermination all Palestinians? What if they called for the genocide of American blacks? What if they decided that transsexuals needed to be wiped from the Earth? What if white male marchers demanded the extermination of anyone?

Ivy League: Jews are Fair Game

Would such statements and sentiments get the offending students expelled? You know the answer and so do the university presidents. Nonetheless, these three University presidents essentially intimated that Jews are “fair game.” All of the rules and regulations about what can be expressed on campus and the type of remarks permissible apparently get thrown out the window when it comes to Jews.

Based on the congressional testimony of these three ladies we are left with the notion that toleration on campus is highly conditional. Jews have no rights or protections and every other minority group receives the full basket of rights and protections.

We all understand these ladies’ transgressions, not only in their testimony display before the Congressional Committee, but as part and parcel of their respective university administrations. Each is at the forefront of why, en mass, their students have acted in such malevolent ways. And each, as a result of her inability to maintain their university’s code of conduct has implicitly encouraged students to publicly behave abominably.

Terminate? Not so Fast

We can conclude that each of the three privately know marchers who call for discrimination against, say, blacks, Latinos, gays, women, or transsexuals, would be expelled in a nanosecond. Yet, somehow, marchers who express extreme hate for Jews and for Israel are subject to “interpretation” and “context.” How did this come to be?

Here is one explanation: According to Azra Nomani, former Georgetown professor, “Those testimonies [by the three presidents] are a manifestation of six decades of work by Muslim organizations that have as one mission in their lives, the destruction of the state of Israel and the removal of Jews from the river to the sea.

Despite all that has transpired, I would not suggest terminating any of them. Firing any of those three college presidents would make it too easy for the campus to carry on in the fashion that has already has transpired. Latecomers to the party could say that those university presidents represented the fundamental problem which doesn’t extend any deeper than that. Perhaps then the public outcry for genocide of Jews would cease, perhaps not. In case, the sentiment would carry on, if only underground.

Instead, I suggest retaining the remaining two presidents and having both of them establish and lead a campus-wide forum, discussing how the university has gone astray. Have both of them craft a statement revealing that they were too caught up in the rhetoric all around them to adhere to this basic truth: No group deserves to experience genocide.

Who Can Navigate?

Rather than fire any of university presidents anywhere have them lead the resurrection of sanity on their respective campuses. All university presidents where abhorrent marches occurred need to say publicly I was wrong. I do not tolerate students marching in favor of genocide of Jews or Israel or of any other group. All university presidents need to inform all students that such speech and demonstrations will not be tolerated. Indeed, such behavior will result in expulsion.

Not incidentally, it’s understandable that the three presidents testifying could not surmise what to say or do when grilled by Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Why? Because to be politically correct is irrational and each of the three ladies could not muster the logic consistent with the chaotic liberal mind so as to extract herself from the dilemma.

How do you discriminate against one group while preferring all other groups? How do you appease collage donors and alumni based on a faulty premise? How do square up with ultra-generous Jewish donors? It’s a dilemma that any university president, on a campus gone woke, is going to face. Not merely Harvard, MIT, and UPenn need to be enlightened as to what constitutes hate speech and what does not.

It’s likely that 95% of the campuses across the U.S. require such enlightenment.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?



On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.



If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
