Democratic congressman Matt Cartwright’s seat in the U.S. House will be a race to watch in the 2020 elections.
Cartwright currently represents Pennsylvania’s 8th district, which has historically been a swing district.
Earl Granville is one of the candidates in the running for the Republican nomination in Pennsylvania’s 8th district.
Granville is an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran who lost his left leg while serving in Afghanistan.
According to Media Right News, the Republican candidate has ties to Meghan McCain and has a very positive view of the late establishment Senator John McCain.
One interesting point raised by Kay Williamson of Media Right News is that someone asked Granville about his party affiliation. “Team Granville” responded to the user inquiry “Mitch–as is the case with many combat veterans who serve various Commanders In Chief, and do not ask the party affiliations of the soldiers they fight alongside of in war on the right and the left, Earl has been quite forthcoming in saying he once was a registered Independent. But make no mistake, his conservative values are that of the R Party, he is a Republican, and is a strong supporter of the President’s America First Agenda.–Team Granville.”
Williamson then posted about the follow up that Media Right News made with his Facebook page:
Media Right News reached out to the Earl for Congress Facebook page and asked when Earl switched from Independent to Republican. The response to the question didn’t answer the question. The “Earl for Congress” Facebook page response (likely by a staff member) stated ‘Earl Granville is a Republican and is supporting Donald J Trump for President in 2020. We are focused on defeating Cartwright and the liberal left in Nov and are pleased to have the endorsement of Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy. –Team Granville’
And the story gets juicier when Granville’s page was asked about an Instagram post from election night in 2016.
Media Right News also asked about an Instagram post from election night 2016, that has since been deleted, showing a Facebook post and reads ‘Me: I don’t like Trump. Everyone: ‘So you support a liar like Hillary? She should be in Jail! Me: I don’t like Hillary. Everyone: ‘So you support a racist like Trump!? He doesn’t stand for American values!’ Me: I don’t like either. Everyone: ‘So you’re going to waste your vote on third party!? They’re never going to win!! Me: So…there’s no point in voting. Everyone: ‘IT’S YOUR DUTY TO VOTE AS AN AMERICAN! YOU CAN’T JUST NOT VOTE’ Literally our voting system in America.’
A source was able to send Media Right News a screenshot of an Instagram post from November 8th, 2016 which exposed Granville.
Granville appeared to agree with some comments which were made on his Instagram post from a Facebook post, where someone declared that they didn’t like Hillary Clinton or now President Donald Trump. Although the screenshot has been deleted since then, Granville staff did not deny the screenshot’s authenticity when Media Right News reached out to them.
The ambiguous response from Granville’s team leaves many questions unanswered and raises concerns about his sincerity behind supporting Trump.
Another candidate is running for the Republican nomination in the 8th district. Teddy Daniels, a former police officer, served in Afghanistan where he received a Purple Heart as well as a Combat Infantry Badge. Daniels sustained injuries during a firefight with the Taliban in 2012.
Daniels has expressed his pro-Trump beliefs without qualms. During an interview with Fox 56, Daniels said, “I will always stand behind President Trump. I’m a Trump guy… I’m not a political insider, Nobody has puppet string on me. I’m the man that’s going to stand by my values and fight for Northeast Pennsylvania.”
Groups such as Vets for Trump, NEPA Women for Trump Tea Party Nation, and Freedomworks have endorsed Daniels. Freedomworks generally endorses candidates who are most likely to join the freedom caucus if elected.
Large Numbers of Chinese Nationals Caught Cheating in U.S. College Applications and in Classrooms
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.
