Heather Mac Donald on Racial Preferences for STEM Admissions

Below is another courageous article from Heather Mac Donald that will no doubt result in her being called racist in some quarters.  This one is about admission preferences for certain racial groups to major in STEM disciplines—preferences that backfire and hurt students who are unprepared for the rigor of the disciplines.  I saw this when my son had applied to the engineering school at the University of Arizona and he and I attended an orientation session with the other applicants and their parents.  For a month or two prior to the session, applicants had been reminded that they were required to take a math placement test, because math is the language of engineering, and because majoring in engineering is like majoring in math.  Those who didn’t do well on the test would be required to take remedial math classes.  Anyway, a dean asked for a show of hands of those who hadn’t taken the test.  Almost all of the Hispanics, blacks and Native Americans

Part 1: What’s happening in Europe manifests in America

With the magic of the Internet, my columns reach all over the world.  Readers respond from Canada, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Germany, South Africa, New Zealand, South America, Mexico and Australia.

Many readers cry out as to the degeneration and chaos of their countries as to immigration, multiculturalism and diversity being shoved down their throats.

Where you see huge power elites sitting in their ivory towers dictating third world endless immigration into first world countries—those power brokers never live in or with the results of what they created. 

One look at the Moslem and African ghettos, and “no go zones” of France would turn your stomach.  London, England now features two different cities: one Moslem that British citizens avoid. And the other British London that faces terrorist attacks at any moment from those immigrants plotting their attacks within

New EU Vehicle for Trade with Iran: Hold the Cheers

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

The Trump regime withdrew from the JCPOA nuclear deal last May. Since then, signals from EU countries have been mixed.

Invoking the European blocking statute, updating it, effective last August, to protect EU companies doing legitimate business with Iran from the impact of US extra-territorial sanctions didn’t change a thing.

It’s hard to enforce. All 28 member states must be on board. Major European companies began winding down economic and financial relations with Iran – fearing Trump regime sanctions and loss of US market access.

That’s key. It matters little what Brussels does, just what European enterprises do. It’s hard being positive in the face of US legislation calling for cutting off companies from American banks and dollar processing transactions for not observing Washington’s sanctions on targeted n

Decline in Shark Attacks Assailed

The latest report from the International Shark Attack File indicates that shark attacks on humans in 2018 declined by more than 20% from 2017 figures. Director of the Florida Museum of Natural History’s shark research program Gavin Naylor called the decrease “unusual. It may be because there are fewer sharks or maybe humans are being more cautious.”

US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) cited the decrease as “frightening evidence of the devastating impact of unchecked climate change. Warming waters are making sharks more lethargic and less capable of fulfilling their role as apex predators atop the food chain. Unless we eliminate fossil-based fuels this baleful trend will likely continue to disrupt the environmental balance.”

Delegate Kathy Tran (D-Springfield), author of a bill that would legalize post-birth abortions in the State of Virginia, apologized for overlooking the human threat to sharks in her companion bil

Venezuelan Spring?

Consistent rubbish appearing on the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page is enough to give extremist right-wing propaganda a bad name.

It doesn’t get any worse than from propagandist on Latin American issues Mary O’Grady. She never met a hemispheric tinpot despot she didn’t wholeheartedly embrace – or a bonafide democrat she didn’t revile.

Earlier turning truth on its head, calling Hugo Chavez a “strongman” in an “oil dictatorship” that supports “tyranny and aggression,” she lied accusing him of threatening neighboring countries world peace.

She relentlessly attacks Maduro the same way. Denouncing his scrupulously democratic reelection last May, she turned truth on its head, claiming “voter rolls are corrupted, there is no free press, and the national electoral council is a (Maduro) tool,” adding:
