    There are only two celebrities out of all these people but they’re the ones constantly getting blasted. They should be naming the other people make them famous too. Especially the ones that paid millions of dollars. Obviously whatever they do for a living they’re being overpaid probably CEOs or hedge fund owners. Start naming them make them famous please!
    Funny how Donald Trump Junior chimed in immediately blasting Hollywood and the liberals. Sorry but Lori Laughlin has always been a devout conservative Christian Republican. Oops. I’m sure Donald Trump Junior got into college as all the Trump kids did on their own merit. Not. Mental midgets

    Who cares? We care about this so-called fraud yet we do nothing about giving free college to children of illegal immigrants while doing nothing for our own citizens. Amazing how the mind warps and drifts to feel good situations not in the real world. It is true what the past television commercials used to advertise, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    It's sad that people are so outraged with The actresses when it's the universities fault. This has been business as usual for decades and two actresses is all we are hearing about??? Come on people wake up. All of these universities knew what was going on and probably work with people like singer all the time. College became a scam years ago and unless your family is well off and you have ties to a network of individuals in the field your interested in entering, college is not worth being in debt the rest of your college is all that is necessary and if your only going to get a job your wasting your time unless you know someone. Liberal arts degrees are a complete scam and waste of time. People should go to college with their mind set on educating themselves, and not expect to be given a career because they graduated. Most of the graduates I know who didn't already have their foot in the door of their chosen career are highly educated burger flippers at wack Arnold's. College has become mandatory for many careers but that is why community college is a far better alternative to a big name school and the reason so many millennial s will never own anything until their parents die. Unless you get a scholarship, you shouldn't be going to USC or any school that you will spend the rest of your life in debt because of student loans.

    My only question is why did it take so long? This policy has been going on for years. The rich and famous always get what they want. The colleges would rather have celebs and the rich attend and we all know it. God knows they get away with murder. They live by a different set of rules. I don't believe for a minuet these colleges are not aware. I am sure they condone it.

    This will be tough to untangle but if it were me? I'd pull EVERY record and placement name since Singer started this "charity". ANYONE who made a payment and got their kid in must be automatically audited by the IRS. Additionally all degrees must be FORFEITED. They can apply to another school and start from scratch if they want it that bad. If you are CURRENTLY in school, you must be un-enrolled. And you may not do so quietly or under the guise of nightfall. You cannot argue the kids didn't know. They do. They know they are not scoring well on tests and shared that info with mom and dad, hence the fix. They know they never had college level athletic ability, or they would have been recruited. Will it be messy? Yes. But cheating, writing check with backdoor bribes cannot and should not be tolerated.

      Michael Anderson Jews have been culled every generation. Like Cain who slew Abel Jews killed Jesus. Their temple was thrown down every last stone and they were made vagabonds. Cain said everyone would kill him upon hearing his sentence. Jesus said not one jot or tittle would pass from the law. Jews quit practicing the law in 19th century Germany and were loaded on cattle cars and gassed by the millions by those they called goyim and tried to rob through usury. A generation is one rotation around the sun by the planet Uranus which takes 84 years. The last time Uranus entered Taurus The great cull of that generation of Jews known as “the children of wrath” took place as they were gassed by the millions. Can you read the writing on the wall? We’re on an obsolete system of weights and measures. We’re 20 trillion in debt. There’s a graven image in every school. Infanticide is a right when Pharoah was a symbol of Satan having hebrew babies thrown into the Nile as well as Herrod killing babies in Bethlehem. Our enemies number in the billions and have nuclear bombs. All the politicians and judges take bribes. Jews are working to foment a war with Russia on behalf of Israel. They are trying to disarm us so they can steal through briberun courts. They want to ban free speech. Have taken away the Bible and the right to free association and faith based communities. 9-11 was a warning. New York the center of Hebrew coercive frauds known as @The who’re of Babylon” will be burned to the ground by a well-placed nuke and the debt slaves will be liberated who like the Hebrews protected from the plagues of the Egyptians because they were out in the fields doing honest work with their hands in the land of Goshen , rural America will be saved by a god whose last promise in the Old Testament is to make the wicked ashes under the feet of the righteous. It was 2000 years from Adam to Noah and 2000 years from Noah to Jesus and 2000 years from Jesus til now. The parable of the six days of toil with one day of rest is wrapping up as “a day to god is as 1000 years”. One glorious nuclear bomb and parasitic socialist blue urban liberals die with their frauds and we will make sure Uncle Sam is never put back together again. The release from a 24/7 Jew slander campaign and 20 trillion in debt will be announced by a mushroom cloud. We will be so happy and kick up our heels, “like calves released from a stall on a spring day” Speaking of Spring ...
