H u r r a h❗️ “…the current Democratic Congress is enacting more race-conscious programs and the Biden administration is happily implementing them. Yet the federal judiciary, newly stocked with Trump appointees, is poised to interpret the Constitution as colorblind and strike them down.” Causa est in loco: Government policies that classify people by race are presumptively invalid. To overcome that presumption, the government must show that favoring one race over another is necessary to achieve a compelling state interest. And even when the government can show that it has a compelling interest, it must narrowly tailor its remedy to advance that interest. This is a very demanding standard, which few programs will survive. ~ Majority Opinion - Amul Thapar, Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals

It’s a lose-lose proposition to be on the wrong side of a political issue so strongly felt by the US electorate. It’s even tougher when you’re desperate to keep your margins of power in Washington.

UNDER TRUMP: “…in the first three years of the Trump presidency, as unemployment nearly vanished, illegal immigration was almost completely stopped, and American economic growth soared, generated by an increasing workforce among the lowest 20 percent of income earners.” UNDER BIDEN: “So far, the Biden Administration’s desire to discuss climate change with China must rank as one of the most absurdly esoteric foreign policy considerations in living memory, as well as a godsend to the People’s Republic. They think the concept is bunk and could not be more delighted at the economic penalties the West is imposing upon itself in trying to move to what is mistakenly described as sustainable energy.” Do you miss him yet❓

If a state sponsored ‘place of higher learning’ is NOT in existence for the public good, then why is it being funded by the state? “This faculty groupthink, the thought goes, has affected the relationship of universities to broader society, particularly state-run and state-supported universities founded to provide public goods to society. The sense is that this groupthink has transformed faculty and administrative culture into a largely monochromatic intellectual culture hostile to, and contemptuous of, the life and aspirations of the broader society.”
