Lynch Love

There are already demands that Loretta Lynch resign or be replaced as the nation’s top law (or is that love?) enforcement officer, after her recent outlandish comment in Orlando that “our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, unity and love.”

But wait a minute. Maybe her comment is actually a much stronger condemnation of jihadists than anything Obama or Clinton has said. If Lynch is a sincere, believing Christian, then maybe she was invoking Matthew 5:44’s command to “love your enemies.” If so, that would at least be recognizing them as enemies, something Obama and Clinton have been unwilling to do since one has enemies in war and we, they insist, are not at war.

More Gender-bending Title IX Confusion From Obama Admin

Now the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights is requiring schools and colleges to increase the numbers of males and females in classes where members of their sex are “underrepresented.” But now that “male” and “female” are problematic, subject to interpretation, and “sex” means gender and gender is determined by one’s gender identity, exactly how should these students be counted?

UVa’s Remarkable Black Graduation (AND Non-Graduation) Rate

Every year University of Virginia administrators boast (literally) that UVa has the highest black graduation rate of any public university in the country. What they and no one ever seems to mention is that, in all of these years, blacks fail to graduate from UVa in four or six years at twice the rate of […]

Bias In Specialty Press Reporting

George Leef points to an impressive essay by Emory English professor Mark Bauerlein on bias in the reporting on education by the specialized, industry-focused press. If you’re interested in media bias — and if you’re not, you should be — let me also suggest that you read (or if you’re an old-timer here, re-read) an […]

Potty Talk

According to a recent study, of the 134 countries listed in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Index, 54.5% of them speak gendered languages — languages, like French and Spanish, in which nouns, pronouns, and adjectives have a feminine or masculine gender. (English, in case you’re wondering, is one of a a relatively few […]
