The criminal at the heart of a nationwide college admission corruption scandal told the wealthy and privileged students he shepherded into elite colleges to claim that they were minorities, according to reporting from the Wall Street Journal.
William “Rick” Singer, the founder of the Edge College and Career Network, told students who sought admissions to prestigious universities to misrepresent their ethnic and racial background. Singer is currently facing numerous felony charges in Massachusetts for his role in overseeing the college admissions fraud ring, and is accused of utilizing numerous underhanded tactics such as bribery and artificially inflating test scores to secure admissions for the children of his wealthy clients.
A desire among major universities and colleges to admit a higher proportion of minority students is said to have played a role in Singer’s scam. Singer told parents to change their child’s race on admissions forms to ‘Black’ or ‘Hispanic.’ Students also were told to exaggerate distant family connections. such as invoking Native American identity on account of generationally separated relatives.
Singer’s scam was specially targeted towards wealthy and affluent clients, and is described by some to have exposed the greater American academic establishment as a farcical mockery of meritocratic principles. As Singer got affluent and entitled children of the rich into schools like Stanford and Harvard on the basis of lies, middle and working-class young Americans were likely rejected admission to make space.
Small-time Democratic Presidential candidate and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has been implicated in connection to the scam.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
