Examples of academia in a Sentence

  1. Mike Gallagher:

    Since Biden took office on Jan. 20, the number of reported foreign gifts has absolutely plummeted, american universities have reported just over $4 million in donations. That's a tiny number. The math doesn't add up. And making matters worse, it appears that the Biden administration has not launched even one new investigation into foreign funding in universities. So, in my mind, that leaves us with two scenarios: either spigots for foreign gifts were turned off, or the Biden administration is giving universities a pass, directly violating federal law, and in the process, allowing the Chinese Communist Party free reign to influence American academia without any transparency.

Of course, that's a flat-out lie. The greatest threat to America is the Democrat Party.
