More College Cheating

Walter Williams (yet again) sheds light on the extent of college admissions cheating and fraud. The “ordinary” system blows the Hollywood trash out of the water.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70 percent of white high school graduates in 2016 enrolled in college, and 58 percent of black high school graduates enrolled in college. However, that year only 37 percent of white high school graduates tested as college-ready but colleges admitted 70 percent of them. Roughly 17 percent of black high school graduates tested as college-ready but colleges admitted 58 percent of them.

About 40 percent of college freshmen must take at least one remedial course. To deal with ill-prepared students, professors dumb down their courses so that students can get passing grades. Colleges also set up majors with little or no academic content so as to accommodate students with limited academic abilities. Such majors often include the term “studies”: ethnic studies, cultural studies, gender studies or American studies. The major selected by the most ill-prepared students, sadly enough, is education. When students’ SAT scores are ranked by intended major, education majors place 26th on a list of 38.

One gross example of administrative dishonesty surfaced at the University of North Carolina. A learning specialist hired to help UNC athletes found that 60 percent of the 183 members of the football and basketball teams read between fourth- and eighth-grade levels. About 10 percent read below a third-grade level. These athletes both graduated from high school and were admitted to UNC. More than likely, UNC is not alone in these practices because sports are the money-making center of many colleges.

Maybe the DOJ needs to look closer at the system itself. And given what we know about the quality, who the hell would pay extra in order to have a child admitted to such lunacy?

The Leader Americans Deserve?

She probably is or would be if only she would gain 80 pounds and get twelve tattoos. She exactly what post-American Amerikans needs, says Carlos Slim’s Blog:

The murder of 50 Muslim worshipers in New Zealand, allegedly by a 28-year-old Australian white supremacist, will be long scrutinized for the way violent hatreds are spawned and staged on social media and the internet. But now the world should learn from the way Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s prime minister, has responded to the horror.

Almost immediately after last Friday’s killings, Ms. Ardern listened to her constituents’ outrage and declared that within days her government would introduce new controls on the military-style weapons that the Christchurch shooter and many of the mass killers in the United States have used on their rampages. And she delivered.

On Thursday, Ms. Ardern announced a ban on all military-style semiautomatic and automatic weapons, parts that can be used to turn other rifles into such weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. “It’s about all of us,” she said, “it’s in the national interest and it’s about safety.”

Earlier in the week, she told Parliament that social media sites must address the ease with which the internet can be used to spew hate and images of violence. “We cannot simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and that what is said on them is not the responsibility of the place where they are published,” she said. “It cannot be a case of all profit, no responsibility.”

Ms. Ardern didn’t propose immediate measures to limit the reach of Facebook, Twitter and other internet publishers, and it’s not obvious what could be done without trampling freedom of speech. But she made clear that she believed that those social media platforms, like gun manufacturers and dealers, bore some responsibility for the carnage visited on Christchurch and so many communities in recent years.

The new gun proposal will require considerable fine-tuning and defining before it becomes law. New Zealand’s existing laws are relatively lenient, and a large percentage of the estimated 1.2 million to 1.5 million firearms owned by about 250,000 people are not registered. It is not known how many of these will become illegal under the new laws.

Kiwis, it’s time to hide those guns away. And hold your breath on Farceberg accountability.

Back in the USE, those “pro-Second Amendment” jellyfish in the GOP aren’t even waiting to cave – they’re moving the gun grab forward (quietly). But they made enough noise to draw Rev. Chuck Baldwin’s attention:

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin conducting hearings next Tuesday, March 26, on Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019—otherwise known as a national “red flag” gun confiscation bill. The bill was introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (R-FL). If this gun confiscation bill passes the U.S. Senate, it will most certainly pass the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, and President Donald Trump absolutely WILL sign it into law.

I am writing this open letter to Senators Rubio and Graham, President Trump and the untold numbers of legislators, judges and lawmen that will be working together to facilitate and execute the confiscation of the arms of innocent American citizens—citizens who have not even been charged with a crime.

Remember, if you don’t elect shitheads like Rubio and Graham, then the Demoncrats will win…

AND! Both the DNC and the GOP, while disarming you, plan to keep the invasion spigot wide open, bringing in millions more reasons to be armed. Reasons like the “Italian” bus driver who wanted to BBQ 51 kids.

TELEMMGLPICT000191937845_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqWwjgWBEiov1Rnx2hGu08Eg3fw-fxSNdY10hVqfzBZuU

Your civilization on enemigration. No, this will not stand in Italy in 2019.

Nobody needs an AR-15 third-world primitive roasting school buses. Noticed that story reported by the MSM? Me neither. Carlos Slim should look into that.

Marine Corps Commandant Admits USMC Can’t Do Job, Should Be Disbanded

Too busy overseas to protect actual America.

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.”

In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases.

Neller, a four-star general, said because of the problems, Marines will not participate in planned training exercises in Indonesia, Scotland and Mongolia, and will reduce their participation in joint exercises with Australia and South Korea.

Yeah. Forget the largest invasion in history happening right here, right now. Gotta protect Indonesia, Scotland, and Mongolia. Or, are we at war with them???

Thanks, Mac. Semper fi Nunc inutilia!

False Flags Expose Each Other

New Zealand predictably and cuckishly moves to ban assault rifles in the wake of last week’s false flag event at the Christchurch terrorist training center. That in and of itself might be news for some. Here is what I took away from the story.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says New Zealand is immediately banning assault rifles, high-capacity magazines and “military style semi-automatic rifles” like the weapons used in last Friday’s attacks on two Christchurch mosques.

Ardern announced the ban Thursday and said it would be followed by legislation to be introduced next month.

She said the man arrested in the attacks had purchased his weapons legally and enhanced their capacity by using 30-round magazines “done easily through a simple online purchase.”

11:30 a.m.

An imam says he’s expecting thousands of people at an emotional Friday prayer service a week after an attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Six more funerals were being held Thursday for the 50 people killed last Friday.

Forget, for once, the gun control communism. Six funerals on Thursday for Muslims killed last Friday. Why does that strike me as odd?

Maybe it’s because I know that pursuant to “traditional Islamic procedures,” Muslims must be immediately buried at sea in bags with no witnesses…

The burial at sea of Osama bin Laden after he was killed by Navy SEALs last year followed traditional Islamic procedures, according to newly released military e-mails, but less than a dozen “leadership” members aboard the Navy carrier where the service took place were informed of the burial.

“Any sailors watch the burial?” a Navy commander asked the public affairs officer on the USS Carl Vinson in a May 3, 2011, e-mail. The Carl Vinson was the carrier where the SEALs took bin Laden’s body by helicopter after he was killed during the May 2, 2011, raid at his compound in Pakistan.

“Only a small group of the leadership was informed — less than a dozen,” the public affairs officer replied. Another e-mail stated, “Burial No Sailors Watched.”
Ten heavily redacted e-mails were released by the Department of Defense in response to a Freedom of Information lawsuit initially filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

In communications between high-ranking officers, the e-mails describe Islamic burial procedures being carried out with no fanfare, apparently with few of the officers and enlisted personnel aboard the huge carrier aware of what was going on aboard their ship.

“Traditional procedures for Islamic burial was followed,” said one e-mail, adding, “The deceased’s body was washed (ablution) then placed in a white sheet. The body was placed in a weighted bag. a military officer read prepared religious remarks, which were translated into Arabic by a native speaker. After the words were complete, the body was placed on a prepared flat board, tipped up, whereupon the deceased’s body slid into the sea.”

The e-mail detailing the burial account was sent on May 2, 2011, and addressed to former Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen.

Okay, now forget, for once, that:

This is the second time the USE government claimed Bin Laden died;

The secrecy involved in the sea-dump;

The overall general secrecy and lack of evidence;

The outrage of Muslim clerics about this “tradition;” and

What happened to Seal Team Six after the fact.

Taking the omnipotent USE government at its word (I laughed too), Muslims must be interred darn quick. Bin Laden was disposed of within a day. Old Islamic custom and such.

Why’s it taking a week in New Zealand? Has NZ (and ANZAC and the USE) gone anti-Islamic?! Or are they just a bunch of liars?

At least the peeps are going to give up the guns without a fight – channeling their inner GOP…

An American Spring – from TPC

An American Spring in the Air?

This very Wednesday, March the 20th, in A.R.S.H. 2019, at around 5:58 PM (EST), the Sun will traverse the celestial equator and we will cross the vernal equinox. In other words, Happy Spring 2019!


Springtime is the time of new life, renewal, and thawing. Flowers bloom. Temperatures rise. Old dust is swept away. Baseball players hit the field. Families hit the sunnier beaches. The Masters. Tax Day.
Picture from Free Images.
Eight years ago, word reached the eager ears of the West of an “Arab Spring.” Up rose an uprising in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Syria, and elsewhere in the Middle East. The Egyptian affair probably worked out best for the people. In Syria, well … yeah. Libya was more of a reverse robbery by the Bank of England and Goldman Sachs than a revolution. And, unless they’re filming a Star Wars movie, nobody really cares about Tunisia.
Still, this has me, as always, thinking about possibilities. Could we witness our own revolution and/or revival? Could there be a Western Spring, an American Spring? Are we in the early stages of one now?
As I alluded to last week, Americans are waning in America. Original intent Americans are somewhere around 10-15% of the population. Stand-in or make-do Americans are headed towards minority, great plurality status in a decade or two. Then what? Don’t worry too much about the particulars – we’ll soon enough find out what’s in store.
Let’s be honest, for Spring’s sake. The Old Republic died in 1861; an Empire was born. The United States Empire masqueraded well as the Federal Republic for a long time, even as the cracks formed and grew. The flag. English. Disneyland. Etc. But, all good (or not-so-good) things must come to an end. Already collapsing, the Empire enters its Winter. Then what? We’ll soon find out.
I really have no idea how it will all come to pass nor how it will all shake out. Knowing something of history and of human nature, I suspect a war is in order. My best guess would Balkanization along the model lines of Yugoslavia.
However – Rejoice! Rejoice! – however it happens, I also suspect that a remnant of the American People and the American Nation will survive. Thrive, even, we may. The where’s and the how’s I know more of than I’ll write today. Shunning divination, I can only speculate. And, I’m not overly concerned with how the governance works out. I do have my preferences but this isn’t about me.

Terror-Who Now?

The latest TPC piece should be out any minute now.

In the meantime: When I heard about the false flag shooting in NZ, I almost immediately wondered if the involved Mosque had been the center of any terror plotting, by jihadis, of late.

And … it sure was.

The Christchurch mosque where a gunman opened fire and killed dozens of Muslims has links to radical Islamic terrorism, according to a New Zealand newspaper.

The newspaper, called Stuff, reported on a story in 2014 about how two Australians killed in Yemen by drone strike were radicalized in Christchurch mosques.

Specifically, Christopher Havard was reportedly radicalized by the Al Noor mosque, the same mosque targeted by shooter Brenton Tarrant.

The article has since been wiped from the internet after the Christchurch shooting, but an archived version is available HERE.

Funny, huh?

Utrecht: Back to Regular Terrorism

No “far right” white guy to blame this time. The shooting spree in Utrecht highlights what Sen. Anning said about the usual perpetrators. Their back. Sometimes DIEversity visits outside the schools!

And, the TURKISH suspect has been nabbed.

Police release photo of Gökmen Tanis, 37, captured on the tram’s CCTV just minutes before the shooting
Three people have died and five people are injured after the shooting in Utrecht, central Netherlands
Police said the gunman ‘who may have had a terrorist motive’, opened fire on a tram in the city centre
The assailant fled the scene but police have since arrested a suspect in the Oudernoord district of Utrecht
Tanis’ family members in Turkey say the person targeted on the tram was a relative of the 37-year-old
Dutch government raised the terrorism threat level to highest possible, and schools were on lockdown earlier
Incident took place just three days after a terror attack on two mosques in New Zealand where 50 were killed

I expect Brussels will immediately call for common sense Turk control. Hate has no place in Utrecht.

When Dieversity Calls on the Classroom

“Diversity” along with inclusion, tolerance, and hatred of Western Civilization is the mantra of today’s “culture” and of the “schools.” It’s good, just read what they have to say over at Great Schools:

Ironically, while our schools are becoming more segregated, our society is becoming ever more diverse. Some 44 percent of American students today are nonwhite, and that number rises every year. To prepare kids to be global citizens, we need to expose them to more than the quadratic equation and the history of the 13 colonies. It’s essential for our kids to learn to get along with and understand people from all walks of life.

In fact, diversity in education has been shown to promote tolerance. One recent study found, for example, that college students in diverse settings exhibited less racial and ethnic prejudice than students who interacted mainly with those of similar backgrounds.

Learning empathy, flexibility, and how to work with people from different backgrounds and cultures will prepare kids to navigate an increasingly multicultural future.

Hell, why learn any math at all? And, who (outside of evil white racists) needs anything to do with those forgotten Colonies? Geez … English and all that…

But, don’t take my word for it. And, don’t even take that of the vested interests at Globo Ed, Inc. Here’s a real-world example of the excitement and excellence that is the mixing of divergent cultures in the academic setting, all the way from Sweden!

Swedish girls are being kept home from school after newly-arrived migrant students turned the environment into “anarchy,” according to independent journalist Joakim Lamotte.

Lamotte says he was contacted by multiple parents from Halmstad, Sweden, after their children were threatened, beaten, and called “whores” at a school where migrants are allegedly dealing drugs and carrying weapons.

“In recent days I have been contacted by parents of children at the Österledskolan outside Halmstad,” Lamotte reports. “They describe a school where insecurity escalated and many now choose therefore to keep their children at home because the school cannot guarantee the children’s safety. According to the parents, it is a group of new arrivals who harass their daughters.”

Lamotte quotes the testimonies of anonymous parents who say accusations of “racism” are flying freely, hindering free discussion about the issues at hand.

“Threats and violations occur daily at school,” said one parent. “Our daughter, who goes to eighth grade, has been exposed since the second week of the seventh grade. She has been called, for example, ‘whore’ and threatened several times that she should get beaten.”

“The police have been summoned many times. Last week, the police were in place on three occasions. An ambulance has also been called to the school during assaults.”

Parents say they believe management are not taking the problems seriously, instead attacking those who raise concerns about conditions at the school.

“Right now, it is anarchy at the school and they have lost control completely,” said another parent. “At the same time, school management wants to silence what is happening and blame the events on racism. Racism certainly occurs, but I and many others do not see it as the problem.”

“The reason for this is special treatment and that the newly arrived young people are not integrated. On Friday, two girls were hit and kicked by the new arrivals.”

Lamotte says the head of school has hung the phone up on him during multiple attempts to contact him.

Selling drugs! Threats! Calling your daughter a whore! Hitting! Kicking! No charges filed! Heck, no investigation! The admin hangs up on you! And, general violence and mayhem like something out of the third world! This is your child’s school on DIEversity. Use your empathy. Be flexible. Navigate the destruction.

All that or rebel.
