Perhaps nobody better describes the muddled mumbo jumbo and leftist arrogance spewed by the three nitwit presidents of Harvard, MIT, and Penn than Fernandina Beach/Gainesville resident commentator, columnist and pundit, Jeff Childers, in his online Coffee and Covid commentary.
Attorney Childers used his sharp literary skills to dice the three pathetically smug distaff stooges’ faculty lounge performance to bits and cleverly explain why even the left is abandoning this grossly inept trio.
“They were unaccountably unable to adequately explain the apparent contradiction that their students can be expelled for calling a bearded male professor “he” — in a private conversation! — but at the same time it’s also perfectly fine under the schools’ Orwellian speech codes to call for genocide against Jewish students using a bullhorn,” wrote Childers in his Monday, December 11 ☕️ CHAINSAWING ☙ Monday, December 11, 2023 ☙ C&C NEWS ???? (coffeeandcovid.com)
“I’m still analyzing where the three extra-diverse academics went off the rails, and why the left has completely abandoned them,” he wrote. “The three ladies’ performances were a perfect storm of failure.”
He went on to add: “But part of the explanation must be how smug and arrogant they were as they linguistically wielded messy bowls of word salad like they were medieval maces. Grinning nearly to the point of shattering their botoxed cheeks, the three presidents seemed to revel in annoyingly, refusing to answer sensible questions from attractive House Representative Elise Stefanik, who was in all ways their exact opposite making for a fascinating study in contrasts.”
Jeff also expressed his delight in CNN’s surprise airing of the following segment with Fareed Zakaria segment on the weekend’s Global Public Square with Fareed Zakaria. Not only did Fareed spend the entire segment making the case against higher education — and he framed the argument as well as Christopher Rufo might have — but Fareed also shattered a whole glass cabinet of precious lefty sacred cow creamers explained Jeff.
Personally I equate today’s rampant campus antisemitism to the Nazi regime that turned monstrous while attempting to annihilate the Jews in the 1930s. It transformed one of the most educated and cultured societies in the world into mass murderers and accomplices in genocide. Hamas advertises its butchery as a recruiting tool and it appears to be effective on Ivy League campuses.
Not only wouldn’t Harvard President Claudine Gay condemn calls for genocide on her campus, but she is also being accused of plagiarism by those she stole from among other academics. This woman is an obnoxious vile academic fraud. No publication sums up her abysmal behavior better than the Babylon Bee with the following headline: “Claudine Gay Responds To Plagiarism Accusations By Giving Inspiring “I Have A Dream’ Speech”.
Free Airline Tickets—One Way Only: There were news stories about a “mysterious” benefactor at JFK Airport in the days after the October 7 massacre of Israelis, who paid the tickets of men and women returning to Israel to do their reserve military duty.
The other evening a few friends and I discussed taking that benevolent idea a step further and creating a GoFundMe account for those anti-Israel protestors waving Palestinian flags on U.S. college campuses and city streets. If any of them want to fly over there, go to Gaza and join Hamas, we’ll be happy to contribute to pay their airfare. Round trips won’t be necessary as we’re sure the IDF will ensure they won’t be returning.
Those incredibly naïve members of the LGBTQ+ crowd seen waving pro-Hamas flags advertising “Queers for Palestine” will be seated in first class. Based on the terrorists’ charter their life expectancy in Gaza can be counted in seconds as they will be fired on from the rear and the front.
Well brace yourselves folks because those prices are going up. Somebody’s got to pay for the mega salary of superstar, Shohei Ohtani, who signed the biggest free-agent deal in baseball history, inking a 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers for an astounding $700 million.
Nassau County residents may be interested to know that the majority Dodgers’ owner, Mark Walter, also owns the White Oak Plantation in Northwest area Nassau County and his team’s ace pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, owns a home on Amelia Island.
Walter (63), who purchased the plantation from the Howard Gilman Foundation in March 2013, is founder and CEO of Guggenheim Partners, a privately held global financial services firm with more than $240 billion in assets under management with headquarters in Chicago and New York. In other words Mr. Walter has some deep pockets.
But back to Ohtani, a pitcher, and slugger who played for the California Angels the past six seasons and won the Most Valuable Player award in 2021 and 2023 and finished second in 2022.
His new deal surpasses the previous payroll record, held by his former Angels teammate Mike Trout, at $426 million over 12 years. It’s also nearly double what Ohtani was earning in his Angels contract.
Despite their massive cash outlays the Angels haven’t been in a World Series game since 2002, the only Series they ever played in and won, knocking off the San Francisco Giant in seven games. That was also the first World Series since the 1995 inception of the wild card in MLB in which both wild card teams would play for the title.
Just how much more than other high priced major league players will Ohtani earn? Well , annually he’ll take home more money than the entire payroll of each of eight other major league teams. Following are their numbers compared to Otani’s annual $70 million salary:
- Cleveland Indians (aka Guardians), $66.8 million
- Miami Marlins, $65.9 million
- Kansas City Royals, $65.4 million
- Milwaukee Brewers, $61.6 million
- Cincinnati Red, $59.9 million
- Pittsburgh Pirates, $54.2 million
- Baltimore Orioles, $42.8 million
- Oakland A’s, $42.8 million
Speaking Of Baseball: Maybe Ohtani can repair some of the damage done by the Dodgers’ front office when those tone deaf twits hosted the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — an outlandish drag nun group that mocks Catholicism. Not only did they piss off their fans (and many baseball players), but they also lost tens of thousands in revenue. In doing so they may have endeared themselves to the far left but alienated a majority of their actual fanbase.
On the other hand the World Series campion Texas Rangers decision not to join in the absurd hedonistic celebration of LGBT “pride” drew fan applause.
The Rangers have boycotted this bizarre “tradition” for a number of years, but that decision was especially thrust under a searing spotlight due to MLB’s own tumultuous entanglement with far-left LGBT nonsense this year.
“Our commitment is to make everyone feel welcome and included in Rangers baseball,” Executive VP for Communications John Blake said in a statement. Good for the Rangers and Blake.
“Houston, We Almost Had A Problem!” – The residents of Houston can breathe a huge sigh of relief as voters there handed Congress’s most embarrassing member a crushing defeat in her run for mayor of that city.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who once asked a NASA official if “the Mars Rover saw the American flag we planted there”, got shellacked in the Houston mayoral race.
Democratic state Sen. John Whitmire defeated Democratic Jackson Lee in the Houston mayoral race in Saturday’s runoff election after a campaign heavily focused on voter concerns over safety on the streets.
Whitmire, a perennial tough-on-crime voice who for decades heralded Texas regulations over public safety, was declared the winner by the Associated Press with 57 percent reporting. At that point, Whitmire was leading by an almost 2-to-1 margin.
Jackson Lee didn’t help her campaign by her dismal treatment of her staff. An audio recording was released back in October in which Jackson Lee was allegedly berating staffers. On the recording Lee could be heard profanely haranguing staffers because they didn’t know the exact date of an event. Her language would make a Marine Corps DI blush.
Rep. Jackson Lee, whose district neighbors the Johnson Space Center, is a member of the House Committee on Science, so she spent part of one of her summer recesses visiting the Mars Pathfinder Operations Center in Pasadena, California. While there, according to a November 1997 article by Sandy Hume in The Hill, a weekly newspaper that covers Congress, Jackson Lee asked if the Pathfinder succeeded in taking pictures of the American flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrongin 1969.
Jackson Lee’s deputy chief of staff, Leon Buck, wrote a letter to the editor of the Hill accusing Hume, who is white, of racism. What Buck didn’t do, however, was deny that she asked the question.
Good bye and good riddance. Houston voters have done Texas and the U.S. Congress a huge favor ridding them of this epic nitwit.
