Post-election 2020: Two studies say all hell to break loose

Now, four years later, you can be certain that the left won’t be caught napping again on Election Night.  They’ve had months to prepare and are ready to do battle.  The many protests, riots, looting, and violent attacks the past six months are but a prelude to the coming main event. 

Two recent reports, when combined, paint a dark pathway for America in the coming weeks, a nation set on fire by multiple contentious court battles and widespread daily protests. 

The 79 Days Report, by the Claremont Institute and the Texas Policy Foundation, illuminates possible election legal battles on the horizon and how they might play out in the courts.  The bottom line?  The litigation will be time-consuming and combative.  There’s no fast-forward button to speed up the process.  It concludes:

  • On election night, the winner will not be known “due to millions of uncounted mail-in ballots in 6 battleground states.”
  • Given there’s no clear victor, “intense court fights” can be expected that could result “in a struggle right up to the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.  Uncertainty could extend even beyond this as decisions for both the presidency and vice presidency are battled out in Congress and before the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Citing White Birth Rates, Chinese Ambassador Claims Western Leaders Are Pursuing a “Genocide Policy”

“In Europe and America, the birth rate of whites has fallen very seriously. Is this the result of the genocide policy pursued by their leaders?” asked Ambassador Dr Zhao Yongchen.

The claim was made in response to U.S. national security advisor Robert O’Brien’s assertion at an Aspen Institute event that, “If not a genocide, something close to it going on in Xinjiang.”

O’Brien cited seizures by U.S. customs of “massive numbers” of hair products made with human hair from the region.

“The Chinese are literally shaving the heads of Uighur women and making hair products and sending them to the United States,” he said.

Ambassador Dr Zhao Yongchen shot back on Twitter by claiming that western leaders were overseeing an indirect policy of genocide against their own population.

“In Europe and America, the birth rate of whites has fallen very seriously. Is this the result of the genocide policy pursued by their leaders?” asked Yongchen.

Prof: ‘Brown and Black’ research perspectives ‘supersede’ those of Whites

A diversity, equity, and inclusion event hosted by the University of Michigan criticized engineering as a field dominated by “whiteness and maleness.”

The University of Michigan’s College of Engineering hosted a webinar titled “Examining the Hard Truths of Whiteness and Maleness in Engineering Education,” in which one guest speaker argued that the perspectives of “Black and Brown” researchers “supersede” those of their White peers.

The speakers for the September event were Purdue University Assistant Professor in Curriculum Studies Stephanie Masta and Purdue Associate Professor of Engineering Education Alice Pawley. During the webinar, they cited preliminary findings from their current joint-research project “I-MATTER” as representative of they say is the widespread lack of inclusivity in the field of engineering.

“It’s this sort of taxonomy of things that drive diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, but while on their face they seem fair, we’re arguing that they’re still rooted in colonialism, whiteness, and maleness,” Pawley said. When elaborating on her research, Pawley commented that it provides a way for “how we should think about racism, sexism,” saying “we could add in ableism and homophobia and xenophobia, how it’s baked into the culture of engineering.”
