Beto O’Rourke Shot For Stars, Settling For Planetarium

Published

on

EL PASO, TEXAS — The former panhandle congressman made the announcement Wednesday that he is not going to challenge U.S. Sen. John Cornyn’s seat in 2020, according to reports.

The announcement comes fresh after former Texas U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s stunningly embarrassing defeat against U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, who is consistently ranked as only slightly more “likable” by comparison. In other news, Cruz is married to Goldman-Sachs co-conspirator Heidi Cruz  and forgot to disclose his massive loans from the bank that engineered the 2008 global collapse.

None of the aforementioned matter as much to Texans as the fact that Beto was a Democrat with a criminal record, and parents engaged in the shipment and distribution of Heroin.

Simply put, Texas voters decided that — even if a candidate smells — it’s no reason to elect a pile of cow droppings.

“Amy and I have made a decision about how we can best serve our country,” he said in an exclusive statement to The Dallas Morning News. “We are excited to share it with everyone soon.”

O’Rourke explained that in the wake of his historic defeat by Cruz, he is weighing how to “best serve the country.”

Since removing Cornyn from the table, O’Rourke may likely opt for a White House run, though he will join a large and competitive Democratic Party primary field, including a geriatric self-styled “socialist” with a fake Brooklyn accent, and a fake Native American squaw who’s never gotten a single bill signed into law her entire decades-long career in Congress.

Beto is certainly the most credible fake Mexican who may run for president, but is that enought?

O’Rourke’s decision not to challenge Sen. Cornyn is remeniscent of a man who “shoots for the stars,” and settles for a visit to his local planetarium.

Large Numbers of Chinese Nationals Caught Cheating in U.S. College Applications and in Classrooms

Published

Eduardo Neret of Campus Reform recently reported on some of the “many methods that Chinese nationals have reportedly used to gain acceptance into U.S. colleges and universities.”

“Fake transcripts and essays, falsified letters of recommendation and test scores, paid consultants, and fake passports and IDs” are some of the ways that Chinese nationals try to enter the U.S. educational system.

These incidents started out as isolated incidents but “has now turned into a vast, international money-making industry.”

In April, Hiu Kit David Chong, an admissions official at the University of Southern California (USC), pleaded guilty in April to wire fraud and in aiding Chinese students create fraudulent college applications. According to the Department of Justice, confessed to making $40,000 from a number of clients during the past few years by providing “false college transcripts with inflated grades,” “fraudulent personal statements,” and “phony letters of recommendation” to them as they applied to universities.

Additionally, the admissions official even offered to supply surrogate test takers for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam for international students.

A 2012 report by Time Magazine highlighted how a “huge industry of education agents” has grown to cater to a growing number of Chinese nationals who have desires of studying abroad at U.S. universities.

According to Zinch China, a consultancy firm, 80 percent of Chinese students use agents to file applications to U.S. colleges, with increasing numbers of them engaged in cheating. The company estimated that 90 percent of recommendation letters and 70 percent of college essays that Chinese students submitted are fraudulent. Furthermore, 50 percent of previous grade transcripts are also fraudulent. Ten percent lied about academic or extracurricular achievements and another 30 percent lied about financial aid information.

Surveys revealed that Chinese families view U.S. education as a luxury that can yield future financial benefits, which motivates the “whatever it takes” mentality that characterizes the manner in which Chinese nationals go about the application process. Zinch China also highlighted that the competition among college consultants and the pressure from parents also played a role in the cheating.

“Cheating is pervasive in China, driven by hyper-competitive parents and aggressive agents,” Tom Melcher, the chairman of Zinch China stated.

The number of Chinese students has grown substantially during the last decade. According to the Power of International Education, the number of Chinese foreign students in the U.S. as of 2019 was 369,548, which Neret noted is “more than the next three nations, India, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia, combined.”

What see here is another reminder of why the U.S. must drastically reduce migration from China. Although China has made somewhat of a transition from its authoritarian past, it still remains an adversary.

Like many U.S. adversaries, China recognizes the flaws in the U.S. migration system and will likely exploit them in ways that benefit its national interests.
