Lady Justice Blinked: Americas Flunking Legal System Reveals A Nation Divided By Money And Power

Imagine sweating through 12 years of school, or investing heavily in the stock market, only to discover that the elite are gaming the system to their advantage. Worse, their power allows them to escape justice.

These days, an outsider attempting to understand the United States may come to the conclusion that the ‘American Dream’ is best obtained through bribery, backstabbing and cheating, so long as the actor doesn’t do something really stupid, you know, like get caught. Considering the college admissions scam now rocking the heartland, such a harsh indictment doesn’t appear too far from the mark.

This week, the Department of Justice released a statement saying that 13 parents and one university employee pleaded guilty to “using bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children’s admission to a number of colleges and universities.” One of the named is Felicity Huffman, 56, an American movie actress who is accused of paying a middleman to boost her daughter’s college entrance exam scores.

Huffman has some glitzy celebrity company in this modern walk of shame. Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 to a bogus charity to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though the women probably couldn’t tell the difference between an oar and a pitchfork.

This scandal speaks volumes about the ‘double-faced’ nature of the US cultural scene when a parent can fork over thousands of dollars in bribe money to guarantee their child gets into a top-notch university at a time when the majority of college students are buried under a tuition debt mountain. Meanwhile, the spoiled-rotten offspring of the ultra-wealthy class are flashing their undeserved elite-school status on Instagram and YouTube as if it were the latest-model Mercedes or a vacation along the French Riviera.

On a brief side note, the fact that altering the nationally recognized SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) is even possible is an extremely worrying revelation and suggests that corruption is endemic throughout the educational system.

So, what sort of legal fate awaits these well-heeled parents and their children who cheated the educational system? CNN quoted a source close to one family who said, are “hoping to just let this play out in the judicial system. They are innocent until proven guilty.”

2. RT is just another source of propaganda. ...

Most of the propaganda outlets in our nation work for the liberal faction of the Democratic Party. They have no relationship with true journalism.
