Hillary Goes To College: Clinton In Talks To Accept Columbia Professorship

Like the old joke goes: Those who can’t, teach.

And after losing an election to the most controversial and unpopular candidate in American history, Hillary Clinton is going back to school.

The New York Post is reporting, citing sources close to the Clinton camp, that the former Secretary of State is in talks to accept a professorship at Columbia University in Morningside Heights.

“She’s been in discussions about a professorship, but nothing has been locked down,” a friend of the ex-secretary of state said Thursday.

As the Post reports, the Ivy League university in upper Manhattan has been a friendly landing pad for other Democrats who have lost elections. Al Gore became a professor at Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism a year after losing the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush. And the school hired former mayor David Dinkins after he lost his re-election bid to Rudy Giuliani in 1993.

The former mayor told the Post that he’d be happy to see Clinton in Morningside Heights.

Columbia is familiar territory for the Clintons. The Clinton Foundation once had an office in Harlem. Her professorship would reportedly involve leading seminars about issues she is passionate about. No word yet on whether these will include a thorough deconstruction of the forces that cost her the 2016 election.

"...But we think that KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING belong to art rather
than experience, and we suppose artists to be wiser than men of experience...
and this is because the former know the cause, but the latter do not. For men of
experience know that a thing is so, but do not know why, while the others know
the 'why' and the cause. ...And in general it is the sign of a man who knows, that he
can teach, and therefore we think art more truly knowledge than experience is;
for artists can teach, and men of mere experience cannot."

Surely, she will be indoctrinating not educating. Belief requires deception, whereas
Logic Speaks For Itself:

  I hope they give her one. That they are speaking to that crook at all speaks volumes about Columbia. When Trump finally comes through with the indictment and conviction, they would get to own it, too.   I look forward to seeing  the orange cap and gown.

  OK, so the lecture auditorium seats about 200 in an ascending stepped semicircular seating arrangement…. Professor Hillary walks to the stage area…. The first three rows fall in faint to the putrid vapors…… Emergency services and Hazmat teams are summoned … Session is ended before it began. It wasn't her fault... it was the Russians.

Probably teach a poli-sci class on how to commit felonies as a public official and then use "the law" to cover it up. No doubt in a pique of fake remorse she will get Weinstein to make a generous gift and get a building named after himself on the soon to be named Clinton Commons...The Weinstein School of Graft & Corruption on Clinton Commons ; -)

nmewn- beautifully stated. Maybe we could make a Sweinstein movie out of it. "Those that can't, teach" is no joke. It is the truth.  And from my experience at university, those that didn't grasp the subject, by necessity, became teachers.  No one else would take them.

....So Columbia is hiring a failed lawyer as a prof.   Beyond bogus elections and appointments, what EXACTLY qualifies Hill to receive a professorship?Professionally, she's been a disaster- got canned during Watergate for lying to her boss,  Whitewater was a mess even if you believe the Clinton line ("We weren't crooked, we were just stupid"),  and good God,  she didn't even bother to grasp the basics of handling classified materials;THIS is what Columbia considers "Quality Faculty"???   Do they just need some money laundered or what?Let me guess- required reading will be "What Happened"-  this is her plan to boost sales.....

Bill and Chelsea were in Boston at Northeastern university last night. Chelsea fled reporters when asked about Weinstein.


Meanwhile, at the same time, Hillary was in Wales having a law school named…after her.

Hillary Clinton has received an honorary doctorate from Swansea University during a visit to the city.
The former US secretary of state and 2016 American presidential candidate was presented with the award during a ceremony at Swansea University’s Bay Campus.
She said the honour “meant the world to her”.
The university’s College of Law was also renamed the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law.



This gives higher education a really bad name.

Hard sciences and math are being converged more everyday. They steer students away from the good questions and away from thinking for themselves.

They protect dogmas, and discourage "uncomfortable" vectors of inquiry.

The Scientific method is only a tool, but it is being used as a weapon against new thinking. At the same time dogmas that aren't scientifically rigorous are being protected as if they were laws. It all depends on what angles the jews are trying to direct us.

And if you don't think jews are running academia, I encourage you to start parsing senior faculty and appointment lists from any major university. It doesn't taper off until you start getting to pretty small schools and 2 year colleges.

Discovery and knowledge are not near as important as cushy jobs and appointments and the suppression of the White Goyim. AA is a weapon to achieve those self serving goals for the (((self-chosenites))).

CS 666:  A survey of the latest information security best practices.  Learn how to  choose strong passwords, identify vulnerabilities, and eliminate insider threats.  By the end of the course students will be able to setup, use, and wipe their own secure e-mail server.  Students must provide their own hammer and a cloth or something.

Isn't Columbia where that chemistry professor David Collum teaches?  David Collum is the guy that does that end of the year blog that is posted here at zerohedge and at Chris's site.  Fantastic article by the way...   Anyway, I assume and hope he's got tenure.  If this true, this has got to be bad news for him.
