Alleged college admissions scam artist Jane Buckingham, accused of paying the University of Southern California $50,000 to have her child admitted, co-hosted a fundraiser for Democrat presidential candidate and New York Senator Kirstin Gillibrand only days before her indictment.
Gillibrand held an elitist fundraiser featuring co-hosts Will Ferrell, “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, and author Samantha Ettus. According to Fox News, it cost donors $2,800 to be a co-host of the event. Among the list of co-hosts of the Saturday fundraiser was Buckingham, who was indicted in the college admissions scandal only days later.
Buckingham allegedly explored the same scam for her daughter Lilia.
The scam, in which rich parents would allegedly buy places for their children by making generous donations to prestigious schools, began in 2011 through a college placement firm run by Rick Singer. It was discovered by police after a still-anonymous individual fessed up when questioned by police in an unrelated securities case, and seems to implicate many of the elite members of Hollywood and finance throughout the country.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
