The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to
Comments: Tucker Carlson is now interviewing Andrea Ambam mentioned in the article. It´s causing my blood pressure to rise to very unhealthy levels. Since giving them so much free stuff has worked out so well why not give them more. s/o
My daughter attended a private Christian university and they kept on raising the tuition. At the onset of her last semester, they raised it again. After several phone calls I had the opportunity to speak with the CFO. She said that she understood my concern and that the tuition was vastly exceeding increases in earnings. On the other hand, she said that a large portion of the increase was going to grants for students from poorer families. I said in no ambiguous terms "So, in effect, you´re making me pay for others without my knowledge or consent."
Without deference, she responded "Yes, that´s pretty much what it amounts to." My daughter finished her degree at another school.
I have no problem with ´free´ college as long as the school does not use tax dollars to pay for it. The college should not charge tuition, the book companies offer the books at their own expense, the professors teach for no pay, the parking, dorms, health fees and assorted ancillary costs are provided ´free´. Everyone involved offers their knowledge and wares for nothing. That would be free college!!
Will colleges large and small who agree please come forward and show yourselves....
Like a mortgage disclosure form, each university should have to provide a disclosure form to every student not receiving free tuition, which shows exactly how much providing "free" tuition costs them, as an individual. A separate line-item can show the amortized cost of their contribution, assuming they take the maximum allowed time to pay off their student loans. The cost should then be compared to the average starting salary of graduates in their major. A little reality, please!
Are the parents of the white students aware that they are funding education for the black students? If you want continue to increase the racial divide introduced to us by BHO, then just keep on keeping on.
This can´t last for long. In one or two years the school will be overwhelmed by an influx of new black students looking for free tuition. In short order the costs for non-black students will escalate so that soon it will become an all-black campus with no one paying tuition and it will collapse on itself. As Margaret Thatches famously said "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people´s money."
Since this is based on the assumption that the blacks alive today, that will get the free tuitions, are the direct relatives of slaves and to make this anything but a one-sided racist scheme, let me propose the following.
Every white person that had relatives that fought for the Union to free the slaves receive the same reparation free tuition.
I had 18 relatives who fought for the Union and 3 who died in that conflict. They gave their lives so blacks in 2017 can have free tuition.
It seems to be a generally accepted idea that continuing one´s education at a college is a right whether one has the brain power or not, and that it should also be provided free of charge, the perfect recipe for system abuse.
Another case of liberals sticking their nose under the tent.Before long,whites will be the only ones paying tuition. I wouldn´t have a problem if they were majoring in something useful to the county but stuff like that is too hard for the to learn
This is merely moral preening on the part of the student government. They have no authority or power to dictate policy. And the likelihood of the school actually implementing a program like this is slim to none.
Too bad they aren´t actually learning anything. But they feel great about themselves.
Although many on the left have expressed their approval of Robert Mueller being appointed as special counsel to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Alan Dershowitz thinks Mueller could actually vindicate President Donald Trump, rather than bring about his downfall. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Dershowitz, a legal scholar and Harvard University Law School professor, said he doesn´t see a crime that necessitated the appointment of a special counsel. He explained that it would not be criminal, even if it happened, for the Trump campaign to have collaborated with the Russians in an effort to get their candidate
Kim Dotcom, a famous internet entrepreneur, recently tweeted out further information on Seth Rich, the DNC staffer who was murdered in July of 2016 in Washington, D.C. Kim Dotcom now says he has evidence Seth Rich, the murdered DNC operative, is the Wikileaks source. He’s ready to release the evidence! The tweet reads: “If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was @Wikileaks source.” The Gateway Pundit has reported numerous times on the Seth Rich story that you can read here, we have also reported on Kim Dotcom’s affiliation with
A new document, titled “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action”, was discovered recently that reveals a liberal coalition of business entities and groups and their plans to influence the media and the general public for the 2017-2020 period featuring everything from Russian-conspiracy jargon to anti-Trump dictums. The four entities are as follows: Media Matters for America, American Bridge, CREW, and Shareblue. Each has their own strategic plan. The far left groups plan on This is the first of three articles that will be outlining the planned media assault that is currently underway. We are calling this initiative to spread their
On Friday, Fox News announced the termination of Bob Beckel, one of the hosts of the network’s show, “The Five.” A statement from the network reported by Variety, said, “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee.” Now, the law firm representing that employee—as well as more than a dozen other current and former employees in discrimination lawsuits against Fox News and parent company 21st Century Fox—is bashing the network for not giving the whole story. Attorneys Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, who represent the employee who Beckel reportedly insulted, gave a little more
Former Vice President Joe Biden took a swipe at Hillary Clinton on Thursday, saying upon further reflection she wasn’t a “great candidate” for president. The former VP, who continued to leave the door open just a crack to a possible 2020 run, spoke at a hedge-fund manager conference in Las Vegas. According to Fox Business Network, Biden addressed the Democratic presidential nominee’s surprise November defeat to President Trump in blunt terms. "I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate," he said, adding: "No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they
WASHINGTON -- Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify in open session at the Senate Intel Committee Sen. Richard Burr, R-NC, the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and Sen. Mark Warner, D-VA, Vice Chairman of the Committee announced Friday that Comey, the embattled former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, has committed to testify in open session before the Committee. The Committee will schedule the open hearing after Memorial Day. "The Committee looks forward to receiving testimony from the former Director on his role in the development of the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 US
Robert Mueller has a serious conflict of interest that should disqualify him from serving as special counsel. He has had a long and close relationship with someone who will surely become a pivotal witness –James Comey. No one doubts Mueller’s sterling credentials. That is not the issue. He is imminently qualified. The problem arises in his duty to fairly and objectively evaluate the evidence he gathers. How can Americans have confidence in the results if they know the special counsel may harbor a conspicuous bias? They cannot. The conflict inevitably discredits whatever conclusion is reached. It renders the entire investigatory
When Keith Richard Litavsky returned home from fighting on the front line in the Vietnam War, he did so with two Purple Hearts and one more mission to accomplish. That mission took him to an Illinois car dealership where he purchased the car he had been dreaming about while serving overseas: a marina blue 1967 Chevrolet Corvette. Paid for with money he´d sent home from the war for that very purpose, Litavsky took meticulous care of the car. He kept diaries of its use where he logged each time he started it and the RPMs he hit. He never drove it in
The law enforcement investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching into the highest levels of government, according to people familiar with the matter. The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to the president, according to these people, who would not further identify the official. The revelation comes as the investigation also appears to be entering a more overtly active phase, with investigators shifting from work that has remained largely hidden from the public to conducting
WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.” The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey
President Trump´s last minute decision to put off the selection of a new FBI director until after his overseas trip is a good sign, perhaps even an indication that he´s learned something and avoided making a mistake. In the last two days, the strange choice of former Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman had been floated as a trial balloon. It seemed like a very bad idea, and perhaps Trump has ultimately decided to deflate it. The choice of the 75-year-old Lieberman — who, remember, addressed the 2008 Republican convention, and also recently wrote a letter of recommendation for Jeff Sessions as
The latest round of White House staff shake-up stories has prompted a change in how President Trump´s team handles the media, shifting away from engaging in issue debates with reporters to a blunt yes-no approach. Insiders said it is driven by Trump who was angered by a New York Times story predicting a staff shake-up that included dumping spokesman Sean Spicer. It was headlined: Looking Like a Liar or a Fool: What It Means to Work for Trump. "F**k the New York Times," Trump said. "They´re not our friends. We´re never going to win them over," he added, according to a
While former president Barack Obama hit the links on the first day of their Tuscany vacation, his wife Michelle was spotted taking in the sights in Montalcino almost 70 miles away. The former first lady wore an off-the-shoulder pink top, with white ripped jeans and white sandals as she wandered around the stunning Italian hill town on Saturday, accompanied by members of her security team. Michelle was later seen tucking into some Italian gelato before she climbed into her waiting car. Meanwhile her husband Barack enjoyed a day of golf at the exclusive Castiglion del Bosco course, during the Obamas´
Clearly disappointed to have been left out of the headline heroics from Friday night (courtesy of The Washington Post and The New York Times), CNN has decided that anonymously sourced perspectives on officials´ feelings now warrants reportage. The latest in the sad sage of mainstream media´s downward spiral, as The Hill reports, is that former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify that he believes President Trump was deliberately trying to meddle in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election, according to a report late Friday. Despite swearing under oath that he "had never" been influenced
It’s coming from inside the house. Throughout Trump’s presidency and increasingly in the past few weeks, leaks from staff members to the press are undermining the president. The New York Times reported Friday exact details of Trump’s meeting last week with Russian officials. The report cited a document read to them by an “American official,” which summarized the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the report. The president then added, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” The White House did not dispute this account. Shortly

Actor Robert De Niro delivered an outburst of anti-Trump vitriol just before the Saturday night debut on HBO of The Wizard of Lies, a movie in which he plays Bernie Madoff. He told USA Today that Madoff’s story still “resonates” thanks to President Donald Trump and that while what Madoff “did was horrible and awful; monstrous,” Trump is worse than the Ponzi scheme criminal since he’s a “bad con artist” who every day is “doing something that is absolutely — what word can I use? He’s just a slob. He’s a pig.” From the top of the article by Patrick
The Obamas arrived in Tuscany on a private plane escorted by six fighter jets and a 13-car motorcade on Friday as they continue their all-expenses-paid world tour. Barack and Michelle Obama will have an entire 14th century village to themselves during their five-night stay - at an eye-watering cost of $15,000 per night. Not that the couple are likely to have paid, as it´s owned by the ex-president´s former ambassador to Italy, John Philips. On Friday, the former president and first lady touched down at Grosseto Air Base in Tuscany, their private jet accompanied by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing jets. The couple where
Notre Dame students are planning to walk out during the Vice President´s commencement address. The students are planning to leave ´respectfully and quietly´ before Mike Pence delivers his speech on Sunday, and are organizing the walkout because they disagree with his administration´s stance on immigration, gay rights and the criminal justice system. The organizers of the walk out are a part of a student group in Notre Dame called We Stand For ND. For four days, this group has galvanized support for their plan through Twitter and Facebook, to stand with the ´vulnerable´ members in their community. ´The participation and
Former GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush suggested Friday that his predictions on the campaign trail that President Trump would bring "chaos" to the White House had been validated. "When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president," Bush said at the Skybridge Alternatives (SALT) hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, according to CNN. "Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now," he added. Bush, a former Florida governor, fought bitterly on the 2016 campaign trail with Trump, labeling the real estate mogul a "chaos candidate" and arguing he would make a
Gender studies is a fake academic industry populated by charlatans, deranged activists and gullible idiots. Now, a pair of enterprising hoaxers has proved it scientifically by persuading an academic journal to peer-review and publish their paper claiming that the penis is not really a male genital organ but a social construct. The paper, published by Cogent Social Sciences – “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences” – also claims that penises are responsible for causing climate change. The two hoaxers are Peter Boghossian, a full-time faculty member in the Philosophy department at Portland State University, and
Two leading Republican senators on Sunday said President Trump is making a mistake by failing to more forcefully confront Saudi Arabia over the country’s treatment of women and other human rights issues in the Middle Eastern nation. Mr. Trump’s highly anticipated address in Saudi Arabia on Sunday will focus heavily on the fight against terrorism but will include little in terms of human rights. While administration officials say the topic has been discussed in private settings, critics say that’s simply not enough. “America is the unique nation in history, with all of our errors and failings and mistakes we’ve made
Anderson Cooper shocked his viewers after he told fellow commentator Jeffrey Lord that he´d ´defend Trump if he took a dump on his desk!´ The frustrated CNN host was discussing Trump´s recent ´nut job´ comments about his recently fired FBI director James Comey. ´You can´t defend what the president of the United States just said,´ Cooper told Lord during the live show on Friday. (Photo/Video) But when the conservative commentator tried to do just that, Cooper snapped: ´If (Trump) took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.´ Lord looked stunned before bursting out laughing at the extraordinary comment.
SOUTH BEND — Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday delivered a call for leadership to the University of Notre Dame´s newest graduates, urging them "to be men and women of integrity and values" and to stand up against the suppression of free speech. "Notre Dame is a campus where deliberation is welcomed, where opposing views are debated, and where every speaker, no matter how unpopular or unfashionable, is afforded the right to air their views in the open for all to hear," Pence told students at the commencement ceremony. But about 150 people, about half students and the other half
On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone. Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family. Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his
