The Real Big Time Bribes Going on at Colleges and Universities


undefined

So the news is filled with reports over the last 24 hours of misguided efforts of semi-wealthy parents, who were busted in an FBI sting, getting their not so bright children into elite colleges and universities via bribes.

But the real bribes go on. That is the government payments to colleges and universities to promote government lines of propaganda.

Four hundred thousand dollars was given to Yale women’s soccer team coach, Rudolph “Rudy” Meredith, to get a girl into Yale via the backdoor as a "soccer student." But it is a mere pittance compared to the serious scam. Yale University received approximately $480 million in federal funds in 2015, for example.

Who do you think had the big time influence at Yale, Rudy or the government?

It is also noteworthy that one of the universities on the list caught up in the FBI-busted bribery scandal is Georgetown University, a known high-value recruitment target of the CIA. It even has a School of Foreign Service.  Former CIA Director George Tenet was a graduate as was Bill Clinton.

The war criminals, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Jeane Kirkpatrick, National Security Advisor Anthony Lake, and Tenet, have all taught there.

It has received funding from the  National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, the United States Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense.

It just doesn't stop, in addition to Yale as a recipient of EPA "climate research" funds, other recipients of EPA climate research funding have included:

North Carolina State University
Northeastern University
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Stanford University
The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
The Johns Hopkins University
University of Chicago
University of Michigan
Brigham Young University

I could go on an on but the point is the FBI bust is a meaningless sideshow compared to the real problem of influence at colleges and universities. That being government influence which can and has resulted in distorted research that promotes the agenda of the Deep State and the power elites.

This is the serious influence that needs to be stopped.

I have zero interest in hearing about an actress, whom I had not known of before, and how she connived and scammed to get her dumb daughter into an elitist college.
