(Natural News) Public outrage continues to boil over concerning the various college admissions scandals that are sweeping the nation, reiterating the disturbing fact that getting into college is still largely contingent upon having enough money, influence, and power to grease the wheels of acceptance. But are these corrupt, pay-for-play schemes within the realm of higher education really any different than what takes place in American politics every single day?
As celebrities like Lori Loughlin have been quietly funneling loads of cash into schools like the University of Southern California (U.S.C.) so their sub-average children can keep up with the Jones’, politicians have been going around lying about their ancestries and pretending to be for “the people” when they’re really just the same old corporate whores as all the others.
American politics is all about pretending to be someone you’re not, it turns out, as wannabe “public servants” parade around their fake accomplishments and virtues in desperate bids to gain more supporters. It’s exactly what’s being going on at college and university campuses nationwide – except, as of yet, there hasn’t been a single corrupt politician who’s been arrested by the F.B.I. (Federal Bureau of Investigation) in the same way as Lori Loughlin.
“Basically, almost every politician is a college admissions fraudster, in the political arena, yet they are never arrested by the F.B.I. for lying to the public, faking their accomplishments and even taking bribery money to hand out political favors,” says Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, about the striking parallels between the two.
Celebrities who cheated to get their children into prestigious schools are the subjects of a new class action lawsuit
As for the corrupt celebrities, it doesn’t appear that they’ll be getting off the hook anytime soon. Jennifer Kay Toy, a former employee within the Oakland Unified School District, recently filed a $500 billion class action lawsuit against two Hollywood actresses, as well as dozens of other wealthy parents, whom she says are directly responsible for undermining her own son Joshua’s ability to get admitted into college, despite maintaining an impressive 4.2 G.P.A.
Two Stanford University students have similarly filed a federal class action lawsuit against U.S.C., as well as the University of California, Los Angeles (U.C.L.A.), the University of San Diego, (U.S.D.), the The University of Texas at Austin, Wake Forest University, Yale University, and Georgetown University, for similar reasons.
It was also recently reported that U.C. Berkeley is under fire for accepting fake S.A.T. scores as part of its own massive admissions scam – which, similar to the one involving Lori Loughlin at U.S.C., implicates a rich parent for making not just one, but two $50,000 bribery payments to U.C. Berkeley officials in order to get his son into the school.
The Trump administration has indicated that it’s planning to investigate the matter further, and root out any and all corruption that it can find at these and other institutions throughout the country. Some schools could even lose their federal funding if it’s determined that faculty members broke federal law by accepting bribery money in exchange for admissions priority.
“Every student deserves to be considered on their individual merits when applying to college and it’s disgraceful to see anyone breaking the law to give their children an advantage over others,” stated Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in a recent statement, indicating that her agency is “looking closely” into whether or not any federal education regulations were violated as part of these elaborate schemes.
