    Warren, Obama, and Harvard's Culture of Corruption

    5/29/12 By Jack Cashill


    As Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and her Harvard partners in crime are learning, academic fraud is not as easy to get away with as it used to be in the good old days before the emergence of a vigilant alternative media.

    Writing for Breitbart, Michael Patrick Leahy revealed on Friday a spring 1993 article that listed Warren as one of approximately 250 "women of color" in legal academia. The article was published in what was then called the Harvard Women's Law Journal and would have been released roughly when Warren was being considered for tenure.

    At the time, Harvard Law was desperately seeking just such women. Just three years earlier, the Law School found itself embroiled in a nasty racial brouhaha. Black firebrand law professor Derrick Bell was demanding that Harvard appoint a woman of color to the law faculty. This protest would culminate in vigils and protests by the racially sensitive student body, in the course of which Bell supporter Barack Obama would compare the increasingly absurd Bell to Rosa Parks.

    Feeling the pressure, Harvard Law Review editors wanted to elect their first African-American president. "Obama cast himself as an eager listener," the New York Times reported in the article that would catch the eye of literary agent Jane Dystel, "sometimes giving warring classmates the impression that he agreed with all of them at once."

    In effect, the pressure Bell had brought to bear launched Obama's political career, and it may have given Warren the idea to reinvent herself as Pocahontas. One could almost forgive Warren for cheating a little. At the time, the Law School faculty was flush with cheats, including Obama's two most prominent mentors.

    ---


    One has to wonder whether Obama, when pressed to complete his book, took his cue from his esteemed Harvard mentors. Did one or the other whisper in his ear, "Have someone else write it. We do this all the time."? If so, his appointment of Kagan to the Supreme Court made sense. Her history of whitewashing the sins of the powerful would not have troubled Obama as it did Velvel, who wanted her fired for helping turn Harvard into a joke:

    Since it is now known that Harvard professors have plagiarized, copycatted, and pretty certainly have had stuff ghostwritten for them, the bona fides and reputations of nearly everyone at Harvard is called into question, especially people in the law school.

    Using the logic of the author of the article- Jack Cashill, since there have been cheating scandals at Purdue University, where Cashill earned his Ph.D., the bona fides and reputations of nearly everyone at Purdue
    is called into question.

    Except that the OP talks of Harvard WHILE barack obama was a law student there and your Purdue story is dated 2009, 27 years after Cashill got his PHD there. Try again, Salty.

    As I understand it, Obama was a below average student in school, so how exactly did he get into an ivy league school like Harvard anyway?

    "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."

    Mitt has TWO from Harvard? I didn't know that. There's another piece of the puzzle.

    Again! The article talks of the climate at Harvard while barack obama was a Law student there. He received his JD in 1991. Mitt Romney received his MBA and JD in 1975.

    Romney's studies at Harvard hadn't been part of the thread until you brought them up because they were not relevant.
