Madame Michelle Promotes Multi-Billion-Dollar Mommy Track/Affirmative Action Scam in Science, “STEM” Diploma Mills for Unqualified Hispanic Females,

at Expense of Taxpayers, Science

AP: “U.S. first lady Michele Obama hugs college student Michelle Del Rio of El Paso, Texas at a White House event on the importance of supporting and retaining women and girls in science, technology, engineering and math careers today in Washington, DC. At the East Room event, the National Science Foundation also made an announcement about retaining women in science, technology, engineering and math fields.”

Obama maintains that we can “out-innovate and out-educate the rest of the world,” through showing favoritism (“opening doors”) to females who are unqualified and/or incompetent, or unwilling to devote the necessary time, while discriminating against men who are qualified, competent, and willing to devote the necessary time. Makes sense to me!

Chicago Tribune alleged reporter Katherine Skiba can’t keep her lies straight, either. Her lede makes clear that the boondoggle in question is a feminist exercise in sexism for women, her second paragraph contradicts that, as it says that “Obama” “announced a 10-year plan to give greater work-related flexibility to men and women pursuing research careers,” and then rest of the article goes back to the sexist story line, as well as promoting incompetent and unqualified Hispanic females.

The economy is in the worst depression in American history, and the sciences are being dragged down with it, so naturally, the “Obamas” want to waste billions on a boondoggle that further drags down the sciences, and induces people who have nothing to contribute, to enter them.

Subra Suresh, the affirmative action Indian female director of the National Science Foundation says, women should “not have to choose between their baby and the lab bench.” Of course, they have to choose! Otherwise, they will be both incompetent scientists and neglectful mothers. (Not that women from Suresh’s world raise their own children, anyway. After all, what are illegal aliens for?)

According to the “Obamas’” logic, since America’s science, technology, engineering and medical fields were run for generations based on the merit principle, as opposed to racial, ethnic, and sexual spoils, we must have been the world’s most backward nation.

The reader who sent this article complained of Texas Tech being turned into a “diploma mill,” “lowering its standards in order to accommodate another Mexican victim.”

Michelle Obama stresses importance of girls pursuing science

WASHINGTON—First lady Michelle Obama on Monday touted the importance of girls pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math, though admitted she became a lawyer because she was “bad at these subjects.”

Obama addressed about 140 people in the East Room as the National Science Foundation, a major funder of basic research, announced a 10-year plan to give greater work-related flexibility to men and women pursuing research careers.

The first lady was introduced by Michelle Del Rio, a Texan who despite her family’s modest circumstances won a bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences with a minor in chemistry, psychology and Spanish. The woman’s mother, who attended school until the third grade, is a maintenance worker.

Del Rio earned her degree while juggling two jobs and caring for two younger siblings while both her parents worked. A graduate student at Texas Tech University, she plans to study medicine.

“Today is also about helping every young girl in this country believe she can be the next Michelle Del Rio,” the first lady said.

Obama added: “If we’re going to out-innovate and out-educate the rest of the world, we’ve got to open doors for everyone….and that means clearing hurdles for women and girls as they navigate careers in science, technology, engineering and math.”

Women earn 41 percent of doctoral degrees in the so-called STEM fields but comprise 28 percent tenure-track faculty in those areas, said Subra Suresh, director of the National Science Foundation.

The foundation’s new “Career-Life Balance Initiative” includes a provision to allow researchers to delay or suspend grants for up to a year because of the birth of a child, adoption or other family obligations.

Women, Suresh said, should “not have to choose between their baby and the lab bench.”
