Report: Harvard Recruited Thousands of Black Students Only to Intentionally Reject Them

Not cool, man. Not cool.

If this is true, it’s not a good look for an already extremely left-leaning university. But it’s probably true. From Free Beacon:

Harvard systematically advertised to black students whose low standardized test scores gave them little chance of being admitted, a new study reveals, in what the authors suggest was a bid to obscure racial quotas at the university.

The paper, based on data made public by the ongoing discrimination lawsuit against Harvard, shows that starting in 2004 the university saw a substantial increase in the number of applications from low-scoring students, in particular African Americans. The study’s authors—one of whom, Peter Arcidiacono, served as an expert witness for the lawsuit’s plaintiff—argue that this increase was at least in part a deliberate policy choice by Harvard’s admissions office to disguise affirmative action.

If true, this finding provides yet more ammunition for critics of Harvard, which continues to face charges of anti-Asian discrimination. At the same time, the study casts a less-than-flattering light on the racial dynamics at play in admissions to one of America’s most elite universities.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) is one of those people who has forgotten more about politics and American history than most will ever know. The guy is just very, very smart.

Check out the clip below as the 2016 presidential candidate lets liberal colleges absolutely HAVE IT!

WATCH:

On Saturday, AOC pretty much came out in support of school vouchers and school choice. The thing is, she didn’t even realize it. It’s so easy to defeat a liberal argument that even most liberals defeat their own arguments. Sometimes, if you listen closely enough, they’ll do it in the very next sentence.

Too funny. Maybe one day, AOC and Bernie will grow up to realize how silly they have been. Unfortunately, when that day comes, it will be too late for America.

WATCH:

[email protected] on her family moving from the Bronx to Westchester so she would receive a better education: “That’s when I got my first taste of a country who allows their kids’ destiny to be determined by the zip code that they are born in.”

Reactions:

Is she arguing for school choice?

She is but she doesn’t realize it.

On this, she’s correct. Which is controlled by our government. So, is @AOC advocating for limited government and school choice?

I somehow can’t see the guy who just had a heart attack winning the election.

“Real progress will only be achieved when we’ve made all public schools equally as shitty and corrupt as those in outer-borough NYC”

So she’s championing school choice now? She’s slamming the teachers union? She’s putting kids first?

Her parents moved because liberal policies in NYC failed their citizens. 🤷‍♀️

So she is in favor of school vouchers?

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?

For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
