Mystery parent paid $6.5 million to
get kids into elite schools as part
of admissions scandal

Los Angeles Times, by Richard Winton

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/24/2019 12:19:12 PM

Of the many outrageous allegations revealed by federal prosecutors in the college cheating scandal, one stands out. Someone paid $6.5 million to get his or her children into elite schools. But the identity of that parent — and details about which schools were involved — remains a mystery nearly two weeks after authorities in Boston filed the charges against dozens of wealthy individuals. The lack of information about the money is more notable given that the charges go into intense detail about the alleged actions of other parents, who are accused of bribing and cheating to get their kids into

This must be somebody really big in the world of politics or corporate life. I suggest maybe a thorough check on anyone whose kid got into an Ivy League the past couple of years. One name comes to mind, Malia Obama. Her parents would have moved heaven and earth to make sure she got there, if that is what she wanted. There has to be more like this, just not discovered yet.

I´m guessing Obama wouldn´t have to shell out 6 million. Just a kiss on the hand from those purple lips and 90% of college admissions directors would fall all over themselves to make it happen.

Ya know...6.5 million could have bought a lot of tutoring for that child.
If only that child had had a real pair of parents,that 6.5 million could have been a nice nest egg,instead of a worthless piece of paper...

The only thing new about selling elite admissions is that this time they were selling via sports admissions.

Sale of admissions by donations and alumni funds ( legacy admissions) is a process that has been going on for DECADES.

The left has been pushing free college education for everyone. Wonder if the admissions scandal is being used as a ploy to get it. If the privileged get in, how can anyone exclude the underprivileged?

The kid should have asked Mom and Dad to just give them the $6.5 million, then put it in municipal bonds. That would provide about $195,000 per year in tax-free interest. With that who needs school?

A group of armed Mexican soldiers disarmed and detained two US soldiers on the US side of the border near Clint, Texas on April 13th. Officials with US Northern Command told CNN that “The U.S. soldiers were appropriately in U.S. territory,” and were reportedly providing border support “in an unmarked (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) vehicle.”According to officials, the Mexican soldiers pointed their firearms at the two US soldiers and removed a sidearm from one of the US soldiers.

A former member of the George W. Bush White House said the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election are one person´s fault: President Barack Obama.And that started with negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the Iran nuclear deal.“Obama wanted Putin in the [Iran nuclear] deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama´s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision,” Scott Jennings wrote in an opinion piece for CNN, where he is a commentator. President Trump withdrew the U.S.

The Center for Union Facts has launched a new website, www.PublicUnionFacts.com, to track more than $1.5 billion in public sector union political spending over the past two decades. It found that these unions give 90 percent of political funding to Democrats.Democrats in California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Oregon alone received more money from public unions than Republicans did nationwide."There´s a growing disconnect between how public unions are spending money and what workers actually want," Charlyce Bozzello, the center’s communications director, said.

Top 10 things the media got wrong
about ‘collusion’ and ‘obstruction’

The prestige press has some explaining to do — for subjecting the nation to a long, cruel ordeal named “collusion” and “obstruction.” Almost two years and millions of column inches later, special counsel Robert Mueller has revealed the theory that President Trump and his campaign conspired with Russia has been just that. All that remains of collusion and obstruction is the media’s shattered credibility. The errant reporters and pundits — the ones who peddled the most outrageous falsehoods — want nothing more than to move on. But not so fast: There has to be some accountability for the biggest foul-ups.

One stalwart ploy of leftist writers, commentators and artists is to attach the adjective American to the normal sins of humankind. American Racism. American Injustice. American Sexism. As if these problems exist nowhere but here or as if they were somehow worse here than other places. In fact, when looked at in context, the word American, when used this way, usually turns out to mean “less.” Less Racism. Less Injustice. Less Sexism. Indeed many of America’s faults and flaws arise from the high standards to which we hold it. After reading the Mueller Report, I came away with a similar

President Donald Trump’s housing agency plans to exclude illegal migrants from subsidized housing, likely freeing up more cheap housing for the many Americans who face rising real estate costs because of legal and illegal immigration. “Because of past loopholes in HUD [Housing and Urban Development agency] guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens,” an official told the Daily Caller. “As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.” (Tweet) “There may be

Following the horrifying fire that badly damaged one of the world’s great treasures, the mainstream media is pushing the storyline that the fire that ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was caused by an “electrical short circuit.” But the story in the Daily Mail lacks any evidence to back up that claim. A French judicial police official said investigators brought in to work out the cause of the inferno made the claims -- despite them not having been given access to the church yet for safety reasons. The official, who spoke anonymously about the ongoing investigation, said the monument

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility. The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace. A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a “pause in politics,” Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.

Clapper began by defending the foundation of the Russia probe, telling CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that there was “good reason” for intelligence agencies and law enforcement “to be concerned about whether or not there was some kind of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

The voluminous report from special counsel Robert Mueller provides a deeply disturbing portrait of a candidate who welcomed the help of a foreign country to get elected and of a president who repeatedly attempted to undermine Mueller’s investigation. Now it is up to Congress and the American people to objectively digest the report and determine the fate of Donald Trump, who in no conceivable way has been exonerated. Over more than 400 plainly written pages released Thursday, the report provides a readable narrative that describes Trump’s eagerness for any help Russia could provide to help him win the 2016 election.

Joe Biden is running. The former vice president will make his candidacy official with a video announcement next Wednesday, according to people familiar with the discussions who have been told about them by top aides. Seriously, he’s actually made a decision. It’s taken two years of back-and-forth, it’ll be his third (or, depending on how you count, seventh) try for the White House, and many people thought he wouldn’t do it, but the biggest factor reshaping the 2020 Democratic-primary field is locking into place.
