"The executive power in our government is not the only, perhaps not even the principal, object of my solicitude. The tyranny of the legislature is really the danger most to be feared, and will continue to be so for many years to come. The tyranny of the executive power will come in its turn, but at a more distant period." -- Thomas Jefferson, Democracy in America

President Joe Biden recently unveiled plans to use a modified version of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to try and cancel student loans, focusing on “racial equity.”

In June 2023, the White House released a statement in which Biden said that the “Department of Education began pursuing an alternative path to debt relief through negotiated rulemaking under the Higher Education Act. Today’s announcement lays out the plans the Biden-Harris Administration is pursuing through that effort.”

Harvard is joining the ranks of other universities in recognizing the obvious: SATs are a great way to measure aptitude. And now that Harvard is busy grappling with other issues like plagiarism among its top ranks, it has decided to quietly shuffle SAT requirements back to where they were pre-Covid. 

Harvard will reintroduce standardized testing requirements for admissions starting with the Class of 2029, deviating from its prior commitment to remain test-optional through the Class of 2030.

Imagine a high school teacher in Texas, someone everybody trusted to guide and inspire the youth. But in this story, there’s a very sad and disturbing twist: instead of mentoring, this celebrated teacher, alongside her pimp son, was orchestrating a massive prostitution ring, all for their own gain. It sounds like a plot straight out of a movie, right? A decade ago, you might have laughed it off as “fake news,” but sadly, today, it’s a different story. Even more astonishing is that the higher-ups knew about this debacle but looked the other way.

Eighteen Republican led states are attempting to block President Biden's student loan forgiveness effort to cancel billions in student loan debt.

On Tuesday, Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey announced he is leading a coalition of seven states in a lawsuit against the Biden administration over its SAVE plan.

Eighteen students were charged with misdemeanor trespassing and with obstruction of justice after an anti-Israel demonstration erupted into chaos on Friday afternoon, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

The protest began as a peaceful pro-Palestinian demonstration at Pomona College. However, the protest took a u-turn after the protesters stormed and occupied the College President, Gabrielle Starr’s office. After the protest began, the protesters stormed Alexander Hall and entered into the president’s office.

President Joe Biden faces a fresh lawsuit from a seven-state coalition challenging his “most generous ever” federal student loan repayment plan, under which millions of borrowers would have a monthly bill of $0.

Columbia University indefinitely suspended four students and evicted them from university housing after they attended an “unauthorised” pro-Palestinian event on campus.

The event, called “Resistance 101”, featured Khaled Barakat, who some allege is a former senior official from the Popular Front For The Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

Republicans are blasting President Biden's latest plan to cancel student loan debt for millions of Americans, accusing the president of 'bribing' voters ahead of the 2024 election. 

The Biden administration unveiled its latest proposals to forgive as much as $20,000 in debt for some borrowers on Monday after the Supreme Court struck down its original plan last year. 

After American borrowers adjusted their finances amid the mass-suspension of student loan payments during the pandemic (and the scorching inflation that followed), the Biden administration on Monday announced new student loan plans that would give borrowers up to $20,000 in loan forgiveness for balances that have grown due to unpaid interest since entering repayment, regardless of income.
