    Default college admissions scandal

    Thought this deserved it's own thread.

    I am delighted to see all this on many levels.
    First, it exposes the hidden "pay for privilege" of the rich elites on the coasts who think they are above the law and that their money can buy them exceptions to all the rules (and laws). Laws are for little people (deplorables).
    "I will have my own server thank you, screw the State Department national security regulations."

    Secondly, it invariably will pry open the opaque admissions practices of the "elite" schools which pick and choose based on hypocritical admissions standards which are completely corrupt.

    As Tom likes to use the term "herding" the higher education system in the US is the poster child for indoctrination.
    It has produced the nut job freshman congresswomen like AOC.
    It has indoctrinated all the millennial gang with a firm belief in communism (ok they call it socialism, but same thing)

    But the greatest outcome is going to be that the last true bastion of extreme liberalism is about to have a very big dose of proctolgy examination.
    It is called by the legal term Discovery.

    Grab your popcorn this will be fun to watch - and a key to stop the "herding"
    So if this unravels it will be a huge positive for the country.

    I can't help chuckling as good ole' Saul Alinksky (Rules for Radicals) get turned on them for a change:

    4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
    13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy.

    How Did David Hogg Get Into Harvard?
    I’m smelling college admissions scandal: David Hogg managed to get into Harvard with a below average SAT score.
    “David Hogg is heading to Harvard despite an SAT score of 1270. The bottom 25% at Harvard have an average SAT score of 1460,” College Fix noted.

    mmm popcorn is delicious, I am enjoying the show


    I hope the ambulance chaser also named the parents that did the bribing as co defendants.
    I would live to see these elites be on the hook for damages.
    If so their bribes will pale in comparison to the legal fees they are about to encounter.

    A $500 billion civil lawsuit filed by a parent on Wednesday in San Francisco accused 45 defendants of defrauding and inflicting emotional distress on everyone whose "rights to a fair chance at entrance to college" were stolen through their alleged conspiracy.

    what a dumpster fire

    U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (big time liberal) Intends to Slam the Back Door on Parents Donating to Colleges While Their Kids Apply

    Wyden announced that he'll introduce a bill in the U.S. Senate to "end the tax break for donations made to schools before or during the enrollment of children of the donor's family."

    "While the prosecutor attempted to distinguish these crimes from payoffs in the form of buildings or stadiums to secure access for the undeserving, it is all part of the same corrupt system," he said. "The federal government shouldn't be perpetuating this system by awarding tax breaks to these contributions, contributions that return to the donor a benefit of inestimable value."

    goodbye fat endowments:
    With a current endowment of over $36 billion, Ivy League Harvard University is the wealthiest university in the world.
    With a rapidly increasing endowment currently hovering around $27.1 billion, Yale is also one of the richest universities in the world.
    Stanford’s current endowment is an impressive $24.7 billion.

    In a way, I'm delighted to see this come to light......couldn't wish it on nicer people, eh? Personally though, if every college in the country went under, I think we'd be better for it. No one uses college to get an education any more.......

    glockulas almost to college. cant wait to pay for that...lol.. but im happy hes doing so well in school. i told him you dont need to get a job. put all your effort into school. when hes not doing school work hes messing with building computers..so im glad he has a hobby that helps him in his quest to become an engineer. he still shoots uspsa and steel in the summer months and made Master last year. i dread the liberal professors that try to brainwash these kids. but i think engineering is a career that people actually have to work and produce results. unlike many liberal professors.

    You got that right, what engineering designs works or it doesn't, not much left for interpretation, lol. Good for Glockula on his hard work, and congrads to dad.
