How's Life After Graduation?
"So tell me about the other three. Well, before I do that, I just want to make this other point because I think it's important with regard to the obsession my peers have of going into these big fancy firms. Yes. We are the most as Harvard students, we are the most privileged cohort in the country, and that means the world. We, I mean, Harvard has such a vast network of people in many different industries. We have so many resources. Honestly, if you're at Harvard, it's more likely than not that you come from a family that is financially well off. And that to me is all the more damning why those people go into a financial services industry. I have a period Harvard who both of his parents died before college. He grew up in The Bronx. He has to care for his ten year old sister, and he went on to one of these companies because he needed to make really big money off the bat. Totally understand that, I would do the same thing if I were in his position. But most of my friends, Dennis, who go into these lines of work, they're not in that position. They could take a risk. It's not a do or die situation for them. And yet they still go and work it. I'm saying Goldman because that's not where my two friends are working. They go and work in a place like Goldman. Clearly, okay. The other three. The other three, two are unemployed. And the reason if you're unemployed after graduating Harvard, it's your from thank you. Time 51. If you graduate Harvard from, you've really chosen to be unemployed and the 5th one. The 5th one, I'm very proud of her. She moved to a southern state, and she's working at a local newspaper as a crime reporter.
The Origins of Thanksgiving With Bill Federer
"Bill, tell us, why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? What is the story of Thanksgiving? Well, the little background. So the king of England was a globalist. He was a one world government guy with him at the top. The British empire controlled in the Australia New Zealand Hong Kong brisk ionic Canada Barbados Bermuda Jamaica and America. And so America's founders wanted to break away from this globalist one world government king. And so they flipped it and made the people became. And so where did they get this idea that you could rule yourself without a king? Well, it came from the pilgrims and that it came from the calvinist Puritans that came from the reformation and then they got their ideas from ancient Israel. That first 400 years out of Egypt, it's called the Hebrew republic. And it's the first instance in recorded history of a nation with millions of people and no king. And there's around 1400 BC up to about a thousand BC. And it worked because every single citizen was taught the law. And they were personally accountable to God to follow the law. So this period of history is called the Hebrew republic. And these calvinist puritan scholars study this so intently that they were nicknamed Christian hebrews. So in 1517, Martin Luther starts the reformation and for about a century before the age of enlightenment, you have these scholars in Europe studying, not just the Bible in their own language, but this particular first 400 year period, this Hebrew republic. And that's why they taught Hebrew at Yale and Harvard. They were amazed at coming up with a form of government without a king. And again, it's based on this idea that you teach everybody the law and then everybody walks around aware that they're accountable to a God who's watching them watch them to be fair and it's going to hold them accountable in the future.
Larry Taunton: The WEF's Unspoken Agenda Is Depopulation
"Well, we were talking about Kissinger just a moment ago and really what I want to drive home is this whole idea that at bottom the World Economic Forum. Whatever their videos they put out and the sound very good and they're various feel good, a conferences and these kinds of things. The World Economic Forum at bottom, they're unspoken or let's just say it's not unspoken, but quietly spoken, agenda is depopulation. And this began with the predicament of mankind in 1970 and the fact that Kissinger and 74 is pushing in a classified document, a classified report to the president of the United States, depopulation. And he says, look, we need a global version of Planned Parenthood. And now in this document, he's speaking quite openly because he's not anticipating this is or ever going to be read by people like you and me. But you have this agenda being pushed in a very big way. Now, the Kissinger connection is important because Kissinger was a professor at Harvard's Kennedy school of government. And guess who one of his star pupils was? I was going to guess either Satan or Adolf Hitler and I realized neither of those really would make sense.
Google Manipulates Search Results to Help Democrats in Elections
"As I reflect upon the dismal results of the midterms, I'm trying to think about all the different ways in which the playing field could have been manipulated. You can say un leveled either by the Democrats explicitly or by their allies in the media in the tech community and so on. And I'm reminded of the work of one particular psychologist. This is doctor Robert Epstein, who has been studying the impact of Google in manipulating search results. Now, who is doctor Epstein? Well, here we go. He's a senior research psychologist at the American institute for behavioral research and technology. This is in California. He's been a research psychologist for 40 years. He's been on the board of psychology today and scientific American mind. He's a PhD from Harvard University, he's written 15 books more than 300 scientific and mainstream articles. And he has really been focusing since 2012, so now for a decade. On what tech platforms in general, but specifically Google. See Google isn't a very unique position because think about it. Google has become kind of a well a verb. Let's Google it. And let's Google it means let's get more information about it. Let's run a search. And while there are a couple of other smaller search platforms much, much smaller, Google really has a virtual monopoly. And this gives me Google in a way more powerful than the other platforms. And let's remember Google also owns YouTube. So Google has that kind of combined power. Now, what Robert Epstein has found is that Google has systematically manipulated search results. And they do it particularly to influence elections. He's been arguing that they've been doing this for a while, but it's quite possible that they have even ramped it up in recent elections. Now, Google sort of denies they're doing this, but Epstein's evidence seems to show that they do it.
Where Are the Suburban Moms?
"Hi, everybody. And welcome to the Dennis prager show. Suburban moms appears to be the latest group that the Democrats can rely on and the striking thing about that and it is striking. Is that they are moms, so if their suburban the odds are their married, married mothers were married women with children were a generally pretty reliable group for the Republicans. If it turns out, and I say if the data are not all in yet, but if it turns out that this is a reliable democratic voting group, the conservatives of the country, the people who want to keep America. Committed to judeo Christian and American values, the two systems that make up America. May I say just for the record, I have a book explaining America. Americans had explained America Christians had explained Christians Jews explained Judaism and conservatives had explained conservatives to the next generations for the last 60 years we wouldn't be in the trouble we are in. So I'm on that book still the best hope is so important. I don't mind saying it about a book I wrote. It's the book that most affected Julie Hartman, when she was at Harvard, and now she is truly one of the most important spokes of people for this country. Of her generation. It's cold still the best hope. And it shows this country is based on Athens and Jerusalem to put it in the way philosophers do.
What Happens to Kevin McCarthy?
"Happens to Kevin McCarthy? I mean, can he really stay on? In such a big position if, in fact, the house is run by the GOP. I mean, are people going to say, wait a second, maybe we need more change? Maybe we need to shake this up and maybe we need some new blood there in charge in Congress on the GOP that can maybe just maybe have a little backbone and stand up for themselves and their party. These are questions that are going to come into play. If in fact, they get the house, but that's where we are and think about that. Sure didn't seem way 24 hours ago. It sure seemed like there was a very solid shot of getting so many of these states. And if anything, this should be the wake-up call. The Republican Party needs. We have to be thoughtful. We have to be measured. We have to be deliberate. We need to follow the example of what we saw out of Florida in terms of having politicians with real chops. By the way, I mean, not that ivy leagues matter or anything, but let's declare desantis is not just some off the street, like the mainstream media would have you believe. In fact, the guy was at Yale for his undergrad. He did Harvard Law School. He was part of the jag program and was the attorney representing navy seals over in Iraq. I mean, he's got a heck of a pedigree, which you never really hear about because they just want to paint him as some dumb guy. Well, that some dumb guy? He's pretty darn smart.
How Were the Founding Fathers Educated? Pete Hegseth Explains
"Are the founding fathers educated? So don't you think every single kid in America to date deserves the type of education that brought the brilliance of 1776? And it wasn't complicated. This was a 2000 year lineage of western civilization of judeo Christian values. The marriage of Athens and Jerusalem of faith and reason that was the great books that was biblical wisdom that was Latin. It was Greek. It was theology. It was philosophy. It was actual history, it was those ingredients that they grappled with that they debated about that brought about that brilliance of the greatest human experiment we've ever seen on the planet. It was not an accident. Churches had a great deal to do with it, who were many of the leaders of our revolution. Ministers and reverence. Who is the who is the top I'm not trying to get into a tangent here. Do you know who the top what would be reverend, I guess, at Harvard University is today? He's an atheist. It's true. It's an atheist. We're so far gone from what our founders actually engaged with it. They would not recognize it at all today. It was a classical Christian education. It was the way, and none of it was, it wasn't perfect, but they understood that teaching people to think critically, created free thinking people who couldn't be captured by demagoguery. And when you can think critically and think freely whether you're a mason or a blacksmith or a farmer, do you think people in the 1780s or 90s had more use for a classical education than we do today? Absolutely not.
Why Laws and Policies Should IGNORE Racial Distinctions
"The Supreme Court has heard arguments in both the Harvard case and the university of North Carolina case involving affirmative action and racial preferences. The decision will be out sometime early next year. Maybe in the spring, so maybe march, maybe April, we'll have to see. I'm expecting a very good decision and one that is going to really change the landscape of universities. And I hope begin a larger process of changing the landscape of American society, changing and how by rooting out this race consciousness that has now become embedded in society. And has also become embedded in the law. Now, it's one thing if something is in society, it's in the customs on the mores of society. And that could be a good thing or a bad thing. It's a whole other thing to take in this case, racial identity. And use it as the basis for state sponsored discrimination. Let's remember, we have a long history and ugly history in the country, led by the Democrats, by the way, of state sponsored segregation, state sponsored discrimination. Against blacks. And oddly enough, we have now been living for about 40 years. With state sponsored segregation and state sponsored discrimination, but this time, in favor of blacks,
The Pursuit of Conservitism
"One of the most, I think one of the most brilliant points that I've heard I read it actually so I should say that I've read in the past year, I think I've mentioned this before. It's from John O'sullivan, who is a British speech writer for Margaret Thatcher. He had this excellent point, it's true of public schools. It's true of higher Ed schools. It's even true of something of the LA times, which a hundred years ago was one of the most conservative right-wing papers in the country and now it is just saying to say his left wing is an egregious understatement. But John who's Sullivan had this brilliant brilliant theory that any individual group or society institution, really anything that is not actively practicing conservatism, like every single day, vigorously pursuing a conservative way of a life. Will naturally drift to the left, because that's just, in most societies, the natural drift of things is leftward. Certainly in this society because our media and our schools and everything. All the influences around us are left. Wouldn't you love I wonder if you ever fantasize this. That you got an hour to speak to all of the students at Harvard. Well, that's how we started the conversation about the bullhorn. I just wanted to trust me. I would love that. I would get booed off the stage. You know, you know what? You might want to write. You should write if I could go back to school. Well, that was my senior speech. That's true. My senior speech that I gave was, which is on YouTube for those who haven't seen it. Yes, he did.
Is the Connecticut Senate Seat in Play?
"Now Leah, I'm overlooking the fact that you're a brown graduate and having you on today. So that we're going to give you a pass on that. Don't know anybody. But you know, when I was at Brown, I started the young Republicans club. And listen to them. You and I are both graduates of the same year when I was up at Harvard running the young Republican club, and that was a nightmare. Laura, just generally getting people to pay attention in a deep blue state, like Connecticut, is the most difficult part of the equation, but once people begin to realize it's possible, you begin to feel momentum. What do you feel? It feels great on the ground in everywhere I go throughout the state. I have Democrats and independents coming up to me and say, well, the Democrats say, don't tell anyone, but I'm voting for you. And independence, you know, they're independent. They know that life doesn't have to be this way. It can be normal again. It can be better again. And they're voting for me. Every single poll shows that I am winning the independent and unaffiliated vote here. This is a single digit rate. He is below 50% and he is worried. And so is Chuck Schumer. Chuck Schumer, his super PAC has started running ads against me here in Connecticut.
We Are Living in a Society of Minority Privilege
"Although we hear AD nauseum about white privilege. The fact is we are living in a society of minority privilege. Now, minority privileges too broad a term because not all minorities are included in minority privilege. Jews are a minority, but they don't have minority privilege. Asian Americans are a minority. In fact, they're a smaller minority than either a blacks or Hispanics, but they don't have minority privilege. Minority privilege is reserved for a really three groups. Blacks. Native Americans and Hispanics. Now, universities claim that they have to engage in racial preferences. Because that is the only way to produce roughly proportional representation. What the Harvard lawyer told the Supreme Court. He wants a Harvard that looks like America. Not a Harvard the things like America, not a Harvard that reflects the intellectual diversity of America, not a Harvard in which let's say Republicans and Democrats are equally represented among the students or on the faculty, not a Harvard where there's religious diversity, and so for example, there would be evangelical Christians represented, let's say at their purport. No, no, no, no, no. Harvard's concern basically is on primarily the race front, but they're also big, of course, into gender and sexual orientation. Now, why is it important to have a Harvard that looks like America? Let's think about it. You've got a lot of areas of American life that don't look like America. There are parts of America, Silicon Valley doesn't look like America. If you go to Silicon Valley, you have a huge number of Asian Americans. In fact, by and large, if you look at all the different types of restaurants and companies like Microsoft, it seems like this is just like little Asia. You got like Chinese restaurant over here. You've got Indian restaurants over there, Japanese sushi over here, reflecting the population of people who work there.
Dinesh Reviews the Harvard and UNC Cases on Affirmative Action
"The justices of the Supreme Court have just heard a dispute in a very important set of cases, two cases involving affirmative action, affirmative action in American universities, one involves Harvard University, a private university, but one that does have relations with the government, government contracts, and so on. The other a state university university of North Carolina. And these universities are being sued by a group called students for fair admissions. And they're being sued for engaging in widespread and systematic racial preferences. Now for many years, these universities tried to hide and disguise what they were doing. They would say things like, well, when two applicants apply and they have similar credentials, we kind of give a nod to the one that is coming from a minority or disadvantaged background. It's become very clear and these cases affirm this that we're now talking not about equally qualified applicants and giving somebody a nudge. We're talking about candidates who are completely different in their academic preparation, their grades, their test scores, their extracurriculars, their recommendations, and by and large academically inferior candidates are chosen and given admissions and superior candidates to turn away. This is done on the basis of race. By and large, what universities do is they identify candidates, applicants, as members of either underrepresented or over represented groups. And they use kind of broad categories. So the broad category is like white. Hispanic. Asian and Native American, and you fall into one of these camps. Now, right away, you can see that these camps are a little problematic.
Truth Is Not Subjective With Dr. Jeff Myers
"People in America are under the delusion that truth is kind of up to the individual that it's subjective. There's no such thing as the truth that it's your truth or my truth, which most of us know in 5 minutes you can figure out that doesn't make sense, either one plus one equals two, either there are things that are either true or aren't, but we've kind of the zeitgeist tells us, well, that's an old idea. It's not an old idea. It's called truth. Truth is not something that's malleable. What your favorite ice cream is or your favorite color. Those are things that we can have different opinions on. But there is this thing called truth that's come under attack. So it's one of the reasons I'm so proud of my friend doctor Jeff Myers with some administration has written a book called truth, changes everything. So Jeff, let's talk about some more of the stories in truth changes everything. What other spheres have been affected by men and women of faith? If you trace back even things like justice. So it probably goes without saying, but if there's no such thing as true, there's no such thing as justice. Justice is only your opinion. It is kind of like the ice cream that you choose to eat. And Peter I'm sorokin who founded the sociology department, Harvard University said, look, if you give up on the idea of absolutes, the only thing you have left is physical force. So you end up in a brutal kind of world just because you don't want to acknowledge that truth exists. Now, that doesn't make it easy to find. But people, I went back into the 1940s in the aftermath of World War II. The United States was in a position of having to try the Nazis. Well, what were they going to try them based on because the Nazis defense was everything we did was inside of our sovereignly controlled territory. And so it was our nation. You can't tell us what to do. And by the way, by what standard are you going to judge us? Are you going to say there is an absolute standard of right or wrong? Or do we all get to decide what is true for ourselves? And the American prosecutors were seized with indecision in the situation. They didn't know how to approach it. What they finally decided is, basically, because we won, we get to judge you.
Breaking Down the Obama 'Apology Tour'
"Now, in a unique way, as a graduate of president Obama is a Harvard Law graduate as you are, you're carrying a rifle and a war zone, president Obama is off on the apology tour. How did that feel? Because you know that that's an ideologue. That's not a commander in chief. That's an ideologue spouting Ben Rhodes written nonsense. The metternich and the MSNBC is out there feeding him lines, which just doesn't match up with your reality walking point. Yeah, well, as I say in all these strong Barack Obama was the most ideological president since Woodrow Wilson, he's an example of what Jean kirkpatrick famously said about the Democrats that blame America first Democrat. And we took that tour in the spring of 2000 winter in spring of 2009. He continued to apologize for he viewed as America sands. Remember, it was on the apology tour when he denigrated American exceptionalism, which most Americans hold dear, saying it was no different from Greeks thinking Greece's exceptional or the British thinking Great Britain is exceptional, which is rarely Obama's way of saying that it's just kind of an outdated and obsolete chauvinism for one zone that we should really all transcend our petty patriotism. And become what Obama declared himself in the 2008 campaign, a citizen of the world. So it makes a certain sense that he would go on that kind of apology tour. Because he is deeply hostile to American power and America's unique leadership role in the world. In fact, he said, his client not only was strong, that no world order should elevate one nation above the other. Most
Supreme Court takes up race-conscious college admissions
"Months after overturning roe V wade the Supreme Court again delves into one of the nation's most contentious cultural issues affirmative action in higher education It's another test of whether the court's conservative majority will move the law to the right The cases involve challenges to university of North Carolina and Harvard programs that consider an applicant's race among other factors Lower courts have rejected claims that the programs discriminated against white and Asian American applicants The high court itself has twice upheld race conscious college admissions programs in the past two decades but the bench looks different now with three Trump appointees plus the court's first black woman Brown Jackson She will sit out the Harvard case because she recently was a member of an advisory governing board Sagar Meghani Washington
From Bakke to Fisher, evolution of affirmative action cases
"The Supreme Court will take up affirmative action For the second time in 6 years the Supreme Court will take up the issue of affirmative action but the conservative majority is now generally expected to end the use of race in higher education admissions The court is hearing two cases involving the university of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Harvard the nation's oldest public and private universities respectively the challengers to the university's programs have lost at every step as lower courts have rejected their claims that the school discriminates against white and Asian American applicants a decision in both cases is not expected before late spring I'm Shelley Adler
Lies, Lies, And More Lies
"Do you know that what bothers me more than the fact that Biden lies? Almost every day is that the press doesn't report it. The American media are as likely to report this lie. As proud the would have reported a lie, spoken by brezhnev. Who was in office for God when I think about it, I have to explain who brezhnev was. It's very sad. What percentage of Harvard seniors could identify in at brezhnev? What do you think? It'd be very low. Very low. That's pretty important. No, no. Okay, what about Nikita Khrushchev? Any post Soviet, any post solemn leader. In other words, if I were to ask a Harvard senior, name two named one Soviet leader other than Lenin and Stalin. And you don't think I have a right to be upset that they couldn't name one? No, no, maybe I'm wrong. I'm totally okay with that. Yeah. You think it's too heavy a load. Okay, how about this? Should a Harvard senior be able to identify Pol Pot? I mean, that's if you can't name all the genocidal leaders, and they're like 5. Of the 20th century, that's a lacuna. I think, with the lacuna. Lacuna means hole for those of you who graduated college.

"I'm interested in how these issues of bias in technology systems were informed by your own personal history. You were the first black woman to earn a phd in computer science from mit. Also got your degree in computer science from undergraduate degree in computer science from harvard your phd was in two thousand and one twenty years later we're still talking about racism and misogyny being endemic in the tech sector. What was your experience like your personal experience as a black woman making your way up in that world. Oh my god that's like a that's a. That's a session all by itself so like you're pointing out just to give people context you know. When i was in there mitee i would usually be the only black or the only woman in my class and gay created lots of problems for people who thought that to be like them intellectually that you had to look like them or be like them and so as a result you know it was very difficult because you just didn't have the support structures. It was just much much much harder. When i would come to harvard as a senior fellow and you walk into a classroom you would just see a sea of white guys and now you walk into a classroom at harvard and it seems like he walked into the united nations. These are the best and brightest from around the world and so time has changed in many ways but when we look at the and harvard or the faculty it mit. We don't see that diversity and so that we still have a long way to go. That was interested in this area. Also because you said you seem to have this knack for finding these problems and issues. I do you think that the fact that you are so different from sort of the white guy hive. Mind that you were adjacent to when you were studying computer science. Do you think that influenced your ability to sort of think about things differently or helped you think about things differently. That's a fantastic question.

The row came of a family of french descent and was educated at harvard. He was bred says his friend emerson to know profession. He never married. He lived alone he never went to church. He never voted. He refused to pay a tax to the state. He ate no flesh. He drank no wine he never knew the use of tobacco. And though a naturalist he used neither trap nor gun the individualism which is implied in these facts was the most prominent characteristic of this remarkable person holding. That man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.

Forty five zero built himself. A hut on the edge of walden pond and for over two years lived there in solitude composing his week on the concord and merrimack rivers. During these years he kept a journal from which he later drew the volume called walden and these are his only two books published during his lifetime. From articles in magazines and manuscripts some eight more volumes have been compiled since his death interesting. As is the philosophy which permeates the work of this solitary. His books found readers rather on account of their minute and sympathetic observation of nature and the beauty of their style.

Have to be taken on trust. By the general he had nevertheless an admirable power of clear exposition of those parts of his subject which were capable of popularization and the accompanying paper is a good example of the simple treatment of a large subject.
