    Former President Barack Obama lobbied Harvard leadership and elites to keep university president Claudine Gay in her role despite her disastrous testimony to Congress.

    Gay testified in front of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce on December 5 alongside the president of MIT, Sally Kornbluth, and then-president of the University of Pennsylvania, Liz Magill. Magill has since announced her resignation as Penn president over her House Testimony.

    During the hearing, all three presidents refused to say that calls for Jewish genocide violate their universities' policies against hate speech. Each president maintained that such calls depend upon the "context" in which they are made.

    The hearing sparked a revolt among Harvard's wealthiest supporters, such as billionaire Len Blavatnik, whose family foundation has given at least $270 million to the university. Blavatnik froze his financial support to Harvard over concerns of anti-Semitism on the elite school's campus, according to Bloomberg.

    Despite the backlash, Gay has remained at her post. In addition to the scandal created over her December 5 testimony, Gay has also been embroiled in a plagiarism scandal after numerous examples of what other academics say are clear examples of plagiarism were unearthed in Gay's past work.

    Harvard has continued to stand by Gay, and that may be partly due to the private lobbying of Obama, who reportedly came out in support of Gay to Harvard leadership to keep her in her post, according to Jewish Insider.

    "It sounded like people were being asked to close ranks to keep the broader administration stable - including its composition," a source familiar with Obama's work behind the scenes told Jewish Insider.

    The day after her testimony before the House, Gay attempted to clarify her comments in a statement.

    "There are some who have confused a right to free expression with the idea that Harvard will condone calls for violence against Jewish students," Gay said. "Let me be clear: Calls for violence or genocide against the Jewish community, or any religious or ethnic group are vile, they have no place at Harvard, and those who threaten our Jewish students will be held to account."

    Another day later, Gay apologized for her testimony in an interview with The Harvard Crimson.

    "I am sorry," Gay said. "Words matter."

    She said that she "substantively ... failed to convey what is my truth."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.
