Federal Appeals Court Rules University of Texas Can Discriminate Against Whites During Admissions Process…

How’s that for white privilege?

Via NY Times:

In a long-running affirmative-action case, a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit on Tuesday upheld the University of Texas at Austin’s consideration of race as one of many factors in admissions.

“We are persuaded that to deny U.T. Austin its limited use of race in its search for holistic diversity would hobble the richness of the educational experience in contradiction of the plain teachings of Bakke and Grutter,” Judge Patrick E. Higginbotham wrote, referring to two previous affirmative-action rulings by the Supreme Court.

William C. Powers Jr., the president of the University of Texas at Austin, said he was pleased with the decision upholding the admissions policy.

“This ruling ensures that our campus, our state and the entire nation will benefit from the exchange of ideas and thoughts that happens when students who are diverse in all regards come together in the classroom, at campus events and in all aspects of campus life,” he said.

Last year, after hearing the initial appeal of the Texas case, Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, the Supreme Court ruled that public colleges could consider race in admissions under certain conditions, but sent the case back to the appeals court to determine whether the University of Texas’ admissions policies used race narrowly enough to meet the standard laid out by the justices.

Obama’s regulatory chief pushes new ‘bill of rights’ Cass Sunstein part of effort to change interpretation of Constitution…

In 2004, Sunstein penned a book, “The Second Bill of Rights: FDR’S Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever,” in which he advanced the radical notion that welfare rights, including some controversial inceptions, be granted by the state. His inspiration for a new bill of rights came from President Roosevelt’s 1944 proposal of a different, new set of bill of rights.

Oklahoma Republican Jim Bridenstine has just helped uncover the latest Obama scandal: Giving away high-level military equipment to the Russians.

In yet another criminal and treasonous act, and in the face of his ‘sanctions’, the US has been giving Russia ‘Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES)’.

Used by the U.S. military for training purposes, MILES uses a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat for soldiers.

We shouldn’t be giving Russians slingshots, much less advanced systems for training troops!

Bridenstine, who is a member of the House Armed Services Committee, has joined forces with Ohio Republican Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, to try to end the program.

Washington, DC—Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, and House Armed Services Committee Member Jim Bridenstine along with sixteen House colleagues, sent a…

U.S. Selling $11B in Weaponry to Gulf State That Supports Hamas, Syrian Jihadists

(CNSNews.com) – At a time when Hamas continues to fire salvos of rockets into Israel while rejecting a ceasefire proposal, the United States has finalized a deal to provide the Palestinian terrorist group’s leading supporter, Qatar, with weaponry worth $11 billion.

 

The deal signed at the Pentagon Monday by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and his Qatari counterpart comes just months after a senior U.S. Treasury official in a speech deplored Qatar’s open support for Hamas, and covert funding for jihadists in Syria, including the al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra and the al-Qaeda offshoot the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).

Flopping Aces

We need faster deportation – of democrats.

Barack Obama and democrats have created a genuine crisis. We are being invaded and there is no end in sight. Worse, they know it and they want more of it. It appears that the goal is to destroy the sovereignty of America.

democrat John Lewis:

“We are all connected. We can’t just build a wall or a fence and say no more. This is America. Our doors are open.”

There it is. The call for the end of American sovereignty. For how many are the doors open? For tens of millions of children from Central America? And subsequently their families? Illiterate, infected and unskilled?

More from these brain dead democrats:
