An irate mom is suing Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman for their part in the alleged college cheating scam.
Jennifer Kay Toy is looking for $500 billion in damages by claiming that her son was denied a spot as a result.
Toy filed a class-action suit in San Francisco County Superior Court on March 13, accusing the defendants of inflicting emotional distress, civil conspiracy and fraud.
Toy says her son Joshua Toy had a good work ethic and made sacrifices – he had a 4.2 GPA upon graduating high school and applied to “some” of the colleges involved in the scandal.
She alleges that he did not get accepted as a result.

Toy wrote: “Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason. I’m now aware of the massive cheating scandal wherein wealthy people conspired with people in positions of power and authority at colleges in order to allow their children to gain access to the very colleges that Joshua was rejected from,”
The angry mom alleges she raised her son, Joshua, with a good work ethic, and made various sacrifices over the years to ensure he would get into a good college. She claims he had a 4.2 GPA upon graduating high school and applied to “some” of the colleges involved in the scandal — but did not get accepted.

The idea that Loughlin`s kid cut the line..........................................

and deprived a more skilled and better educated kid.................................

who had LESS MONEY- of a spot at the prestigious school.....................................

IS NOT UNREASONABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Young Loughlin got one of a limited number of seats in the class -therefore CLEARLY somebody else who also applied- had to lose out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And in related news- what of the substantial number of ethnic kids who are allowed into colleges and universities based on what can only be called AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are those ethnic kids not engaged in the same theft and monopolization of limited seating as Loughlin??????????????????

When those with LESS academic qualifications are pushed ahead due either to bribery or social justice warrior manipulation - such behaviour does NOBODY any good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here is an article making some interesting comments about Trump! With some comments of my own in brackets):

If Trump is a racist he needs to go back to racism school

By Larry Elder.

Published: November 18, 2018. Updated: November 18, 2018 6:02 PM EST

Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ Opinion/ Columnists

Abraham Lincoln, when informed that Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was a drunk, famously asked Grant’s accusers what whisky he was drinking so Lincoln could send a barrel to every general in the army. Keep this in mind when U.S. President Donald Trump’s critics accuse him of “racism” against blacks.

Under this “racist” president, black unemployment, since the government began keeping numbers, hit an all-time low in May. Polls show that inner-city parents want choice in education: specifically, they want the means to opt out of sending their children to an under-performing government school the child has been mandated to attend.

(This one of the great divides for parents! Some want to blame white privilege for all failings. Other parents are too busy chasing up their kids and making sure they are as fully motivated and organized as possible to take maximum advantage of the educational options available!)

Think tanks on the left (like the Brookings Institution) and think tanks on the right (like the Heritage Foundation) pretty much agree on the formula to escape poverty: finish high school; get married before having a child; and do not have that child before you are financially capable of assuming that responsibility.

But what about the quality of that high school education? A 2004 Fordham Institute study found 44% of Philadelphia public-school teachers with school-age children of their own placed them in private schools. By 2013, the nationwide average for private-school attendance was 11% of white families and 5% of black families.

(As I have said in the past- if parents had the option of sending their kids to an easily afforded private school- with greater discipline and control over kids, a great many of parents WOULD shun the public school system! Many parents hold a very sour perception of our public school performance!)

(It is my understanding that there is often a rather lower rate of violence and bullying at Ontari-owe Catholic schools because they have the ability to reject kids who cause to much trouble! Public schools are not so fortunate- and given a choice between pay raises for teachers and special ed classes for troublemakers- pay raises take priority and too many of our kids are being abandoned to try to learn in a violent and disruptive atmosphere!)

About choice in education, Trump’s secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, said: “What can be done about (improving primary education) is empowering parents to make the choices for their kids. Any family that has the economic means and the power to make choices is doing so for their children.”

(The first sensible steps are the obvious ones- a good nights rest, clean clothes, a decent breakfast and imparting a clear understanding to the kid that the parents consider good behaviour in school to be vitally important- and that bad behaviour will be punished!)

(It all sounds so simple- so how do so many city public schools fall apart? Shall we blame bad parents? We know that children raised in single parent homes struggle more through life! Or should we blame LIE-berals whose habit of excusing stupid behaviour and going light on crime is creating a climate of fear and desperation in too many cities? I say we should we point fingers of blame at BOTH- the bad parents and muddle headed LIE-berals!)

(And there is blame to spare for crap teachers who refuse to honestly admit what is going on at their work places! Either teachers must isolate disruptive and violence prone kids for the sake of those who can learn- but too often teachers cry POOR and claim such separation is unaffordable! Or teachers must step forward and implement sensible DISCIPLINE on bad apples! Yet teachers REFUSE punishment for fear of lawsuits from bigoted parents- backed up by LIE-berals- and teachers rely on the old standby- keeping kids after school as they have busses to catch! This means NO discipline of any sort in our schools!)

(Why is it that teachers do not speak honestly about disruptive influences and why do they not keep statistics on kids who dont ever complete assignments and do not attend class on any regular basis? The kid cannot learn if not in class!)

(Maybe it is time to KEEP KIDS in school till such time as they can pass a standard literacy test? LIE-berals often tell us we must be sympathetic to criminals because they are sad failures in life- usually ILL EDUCATED high school drop outs - so why not keep kids in school till they can pass a literacy test? Keeping kids in school till high school diploma was achieved would be “carrot and stick” - you cannot leave till you achieve!!!!!!!!)

A 2016 poll in “Education Next” found 64% of blacks supported “a tax credit for individual and corporate donations that pay for scholarships to help low-income parents send their children to private schools.” Similarly, A 2015 PDK/Gallup Poll found 68% of blacks wanted the ability to “choose which public schools in the community the students attend, regardless of where they live.”

(In other words a whole lot of parents want to send their kids to the kind of orderly, logical school I have envisioned!)

Trump also wants to stop illegal immigration. Why should that matter to urban blacks?

(I recall the case of a kindly middle class, liberal minded couple living near Parkdale-Toronto- they had reached middle 40`s and had assumed they would never have kids! But surprise- out of the blue they had a boy- and that made for PROBLEMS!)

(The couple lived in a very nicely renovated town house in an area noted for some ROUGH territories! And they DID NOT want their boy going to the local schools!
If they stayed in the area with the addicts and immigrants then their kid would have to go to a private school and damn the cost! If they moved to a better area with better quality schools then the cost of housing would be prohibitive!)

(And there was that liberal GUILT at not wanting their child to go slumming with immigrants chosen by LIE-berals! Besides- we all know that schools in poor areas too often have LOW academic standards and this couple was white collar and expected their child to be as well! )

(There was also the issue of who the kid would come in contact with while traveling to school! The couple considered there were too many drug addicts and hookers etc on the way to the local school where they lived! And what white collar academically oriented parent would want their child to be the only white face in a sea of immigrant kids who mostly don’t speak English! Such parents want their kid to go someplace with HIGH academic standards and with well motivated and disciplined students! And a lot of black parents feel the same way about their kids and school choices- but cannot attain such privileges for their kids!!!!!)

Harvard economist George Borjas, in his 2013 research paper “Immigration and the American Worker,” wrote: “Classifying workers by education level and age and comparing differences across groups over time shows that a 10% increase in the size of an education/age group due to the entry of immigrants (both legal and illegal) reduces the wage of native-born men in that group by 3.7% and the wage of all native-born workers by 2.5%.”

As to illegal immigration, Borjas says: “Although the net benefits to natives from illegal immigrants are small, there is a sizable redistribution effect. Illegal immigration reduces the wage of native workers by an estimated (US)$99 to $118 billion a year, and generates a gain for businesses and other users of immigrants of $107 to $128 billion.”

(To translate that we can turn to StatisticsCanada- which tells us that illegals reduce the wage offered to a typical high school grad by 20 percent! And in Canada where high quality LEGAL immigrants with university qualifications are the norm- the wage offered to Cdn university grads has also been reduced by 20 percent!)

But what about how the president “insults black people”?

After Trump’s recent testy exchange with a black reporter, CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin said: “There is a racial dimension to this. The fact that the president is always — the idea that this was some random selection of journalists he doesn’t like is not the case. It’s always black people with this president.” Really?

What race was Robert De Niro when Trump called him “a very low IQ individual”? What race was Rosie O’Donnell when Trump called her “dumb”? What race was MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough when Trump called him “crazy”? What race was former Texas Gov. Rick Perry when, during a campaign speech, Trump mocked him for his eyewear? “He put on glasses so people think he’s smart. …” said Trump. “People can see through the glasses.” What race was MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski when Trump called her “dumb as a rock”? How many white politicians does Trump slam when he criticizes “stupid” trade deals?

If Trump set out to hurt blacks by pushing economic policies that helped reduce black unemployment to an all-time low; by attempting to stop unskilled illegal alien workers from competing with unskilled blacks for jobs and wages; and by empowering inner-city black parents, rather than the government, to pick the school for their children, then Trump needs to go back to racism school.

Larry Elder is a best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio talk-show host.

(One might think it would be hard for LIE-berals to argue against stuff like this- and it is hard- so LIE-berals concentrate on trying to CENSOR such talk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

MADISON, N.J. — A New Jersey sports official is apologizing for telling student athletes that Adolf Hitler was a “good leader” with “bad moral character and intentions.”
Nutley High School athletic director Joe Piro made the remark while addressing Madison High School students Saturday during an assembly aimed at promoting positive leadership.
Piro tells he was trying to make a point that “a leader could have strong leadership skills that influence people in a negative way.” He says he understands “Hitler was an evil man who used his skills in a horrific manner.”
The district’s superintendent said in a letter sent to parents that the speaker’s presentation was “unnecessarily provocative and insensitive.”
Piro showed a photo of Hitler as part of a side-by-side comparison with Martin Luther King Jr.

FORT MEADE, Md. — A Maryland middle school teacher is accused of slamming a door on a student’s hand so hard that three of her fingers were severed.
The Capital Gazette reports a lawsuit filed by the child’s father accuses the Ann Arundel County Board of Education and former teacher Steven Akers of negligence. Court documents filed this month in the 2018 lawsuit reveal new details about the girl’s injuries, which they say left permanent discomfort and nerve damage despite surgery.
The family says the girl was asking Akers a question in 2017 when he slammed a door to get the class’ attention.
County prosecutor Philip Culpepper says the girl was looking out of a window when Akers unintentionally hurt her. Schools spokesman Bob Mosier says Akers resigned in 2018.
“She was in the process of trying to teach herself how to play the piano but has had to discontinue that pursuit,” wrote attorney Stephen Campen, who is representing the family in the lawsuit, according to the Capital Gazette.

YEAH- note the CONTRADICTORY BULLSH+T IN THIS STORY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The family - that was NOT IN THE CLASS at the time of the accident - says the kid was asking the teacher a question at the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The teacher says the kid was at a window..................staring out side............................

And of course LIE-berals WILL NOT ALLOW the other kids to speak about the incident................for fear of traumatizing the little darlings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So teacher gets hung out to dry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it is teachers word against that of the kid.....................and against the word of the BAD PARENTS who have produced the undisciplined kid and are now trying to bury their shame and embarrassment over their personal failings !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This unhappy incident illustrates HOW LITTLE CONTROL teachers now have in any class room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think back to the news video - last year - of a teacher dragging a kid by the foot off to the school office!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The teacher was being driven CRAZY by the kid- who apparently suffers from AUTISM or some such trouble

.......................................and it is the usual LIE-beral CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A kid who was unable to keep up with the class and whose behaviour was chronically disruptive was forced into the class by LIE-berals seeking to suck up to special interest groups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the kid mis-behaved until teacher snapped and dragged the resisting kid out of order to END the disruptions and get the class back on track!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Teachers DO get marked - and they jobs may DEPEND to some degree - on how many of their kids pass or fail a standard literacy test and having major disruptions in class is CLEARLY BAD for both students and teachers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As readers know, Huffman and Fuller House star Lori Loughlin were the most famous names in the landmark college admissions scam case that led to 50 people being charged in the criminal investigation involving wealthy parents, coaches and college prep executives who have been accused of carrying out a nationwide fraud to get students into prestigious universities, according to a federal indictment.
Huffman, 56, who’s an Academy Award nominee, has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, according to court paperwork filed Monday, March 11 in federal court in Massachusetts. The star allegedly paid a proctor $15,000 to take the SAT for her older daughter, Sofia.

She was arrested and released from jail on $1 million bond.
Since appearing in a federal court in Los Angeles March 12 and released on $250,000 bond, Huffman has been “inconsolable” and “distraught,” the source said.

teacher should be able to handle 100,s if students when they are all on a monitor and the lesson is from years ago that was recorded one time and being replayed 1,000's of times.
That would also mean the family has this as an interaction that builds stronger relationships rather than teaching the students the older ones at home are 'retards' rather than 'uneducated' (by design).

15 minutes of watching a master weld broken plastic is all you need to get started. After you go through a lit of practice you have a skill that would get you an income. Getting the 500watt tool is the hurdle that cannot be overcome in most instances.

Here is an article illustrating that open war between our civil service union HOGS and our elected govt is about to begin! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Education protesters ignore financial reality

From Postmedia News

Published: April 6, 2019. Updated: April 6, 2019 6:06 PM EDT

Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ Opinion/ Editorials

The reason for the protests in the education sector against Ontario Premier Doug Ford and the Progressive Conservatives is easy to understand.

(The battle is one of greed versus reality! As I have previously noted- many of the student protestors are the over privileged kids of civil service union Hogs mindlessly protesting on behalf of their grossly entitled parents!! And neither the selfish kids nor the ENTITLED parents care that the province is BANKRUPT!!!!!!!!!!)

It’s because they’re trying to fix problems former Liberal premier Kathleen Wynne and her government failed to address.

Specifically, that costs in the education sector have been rising while enrolment and academic quality have been falling, with more than half of Grade 6 students, for example, failing to meet the provincial standard in math.

The myth that education in Ontario has been grossly underfunded over the years, created and sustained by the teacher unions, is simply inaccurate.

(Lets get it straight here- that school funding has been rising 50 percent faster than health care funding under LIE-berals- this in spite of ever increasing numbers of patients at hospitals and steadly dropping numbers of students- and we thank Sun writer Christina Blizzard for her article on this gross funding disparity!!!!!!!!!!!)

In 2017, the Fraser Institute, a conservative think tank, examined per student spending in Ontario public elementary and secondary schools over the previous decade.

Accounting for inflation, spending rose by 23.4% from $10,762 to $13,276 per student in constant dollars, while enrolment dropped by 110,000 students, or by 5.2%.

(AS noted- the Blizzard article indicates the funding disparity is 50 percent during the period of McGinty/Wynne-bag rule - not 25 percent as Fraser researchers claim- the disparity explained apparently by looking at either shorter or longer time periods- such as the last 10 years- versus the last 15 years!!!!)

Despite that, the number of teachers in the system increased by 14,000, to 126,000.

(This 14,000 teacher increase gives the LIE to the HOG assertion that smaller class sizes improves education results!! It also indicates how badly LIE-beral immigration choices are impacting our schools and reducing academic standards as people with NO English skills and seriously crap attitudes towards western culture and alleged white “privilege” flood into our country!!!!!!!!!!!)

Given that education is the second-largest expense in the provincial budget ($29.1 billion, or 18.3% of all spending last year, excluding the teacher pension plan) after health care ($61.3 billion or 38.7%), the status quo is unsustainable.

Especially with 15 years of wanton Liberal spending having left Ontario as one of the world’s most indebted, non-national governments.

LILLEY: The ‘deep cuts’ in education are anything but

Ontario’s teacher unions have fought against every provincial government of every political stripe, and disrupted the education of students in order to protest, for decades.

This includes during the NDP government of 1990-1995 led by Bob Rae; the Progressive Conservative governments from 1995-2003 led by Mike Harris and Ernie Eves and the Liberal governments from 2003-2018 led by Dalton McGuinty and Kathleen Wynne.

Predictably, the protests against Ford’s government have already started, after just 10 months in power.

(OH! The protests STARTED when Pat Brown became party leader! There are those in the voting community who sincerely believe the Pat Brown alleged sex scandal was nothing more than a VERY CUNNING AND EFFECTIVE LIE-beral SMEAR! The protests against Conservatives have only ramped up since then!!!!!!!!)

The problem in education is that the status quo is not an option, lest government policy ends up fitting the definition of insanity, which is to keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.

(In the lead in to the election of Ford we were WARNED by international bond rating services that electing another LIE-beral govt would trigger major PENALTIES from bankers worried about the size of the Ontari-owe debt! We are at the debt wall and the ONLY thing standing between us and chaotic bankruptcy is the Ford govt and its efforts to get finances under some semblance of control!!!!!!!!!)

The usual suspects aligned against the Ford government want the Progressive Conservatives to keep throwing good money after bad into what is clearly a broken and inefficient template for funding education.

To help address this, the government intends to reduce the total number of teaching positions in Ontario schools by 3,475 over four years through attrition, not layoffs, saving taxpayers $851 million.

It’s true this means fewer teachers will have to work harder to improve dismal academic results in critical subjects like math, with the caveat they will need proper academic training to do so, which has been lacking for years.

Fixing the fiscal and academic problems plaguing public education that the Ford government inherited from the Liberals isn’t going to be easy.

But it has to be done and it must start now.

(It is quite easy to argue that teachers have made this mess by so relentlessly selling their votes to LIE-berals in exchange for gobs of gravy!! And now as a result of that LIE-beral vote buying, we have major crime rates that will require costly and aggressive solutions- more cops and more jails! We have a rapidly growing under class of illegals and badly selected immigrants who cannot survive without govt aid over a period of decades! WE have a home grown population of ethnic voters who blame “white privilege” for all the problems of their lives- while ignoring the reality that getting a good education is the road to a good job and better life!! Teachers and LIE-berals are catering to those who think that being good in school is “selling out to white society”!! In a country were over 75 percent of all jobs require post secondary education- what are we to do with people who never even graduated from high school?????????)

Here is an article commenting on the messed up lives of Cdn natives- and exposing WHY it is that natives should not look to LIE-berals for aid! With some comments of my own in brackets):

The Great Game’ that betrays Canada’s First Nations

By Gordon Chong. First posted: Saturday, July 22, 2017 09:02 PM EDT | Updated: Saturday, July 22, 2017 09:13 PM EDT

Moving forward on aboriginal issues. Aboriginal affairs: Is it all just ‘a bloody farce’?

Too many of Canada’s reserves are plagued with unemployment, alcoholism, suicide, drug addiction, low income, substandard housing and issues with crime and unsafe water.

(WOW! Chong makes a sweeping statement that denies logic and reality! Natives are under employed because they see getting an education as “selling out to white men”. In a country where over 75 percent of jobs require post secondary education, only 25 percent of natives graduate from high school. Add in the reality of isolation from the outside world and no wonder there are few jobs for unskilled and too often belligerent natives!)

(And natives live in substandard housing because of THEIR behaviour. Govt ships them GOOD QUALITY pre fab houses- complete with waterproof siding- exactly the kind of housing many other Cdns live in comfortably and yet natives live in “tar paper shacks”! Watch the news media- lots of native houses are pictured with the chipboard sub structure- the NOT WATERPROOF sheathing- out in the rain and snow- SO WHERE is the waterproof siding that would GREATLY extend the service life of these houses? Has it been sold for beer or drugs? One news media report says a 24 case of beer costs $125.00 Cdn after being flown into a certain reserve so we may guess what happened to tbe badly needed waterproof siding?)

(IN other news-CBC tells us a “boil water advisory” has been lifted from three reserves out west- AFTER one of the local kids graduated from high school and then went to college to learn how to operate the water purification machinery that has stood IDLE for over twenty years- just waiting for somebody who knows how to turn it on! A typical isolated reserve is such a pest hole that educated people generally do not wish to live or work there- at any price!)

(In other news- LIE-berals prove they do not give a S++T about natives! If they saw natives as anything other than a batch of stupid voters to be bought then LIE-berals would NOT have canned the Conservative mandated obligation of native govts to post their expenses ONLINE so auditors can see at a glance if band councils are spending responsibly! Such an obligation would limit the ability of corrupt band councils to waste money on trips to the Carribean, on fancy cars, on wild salaries, on trips to the casino etc.....and would ensure that all tax money was used honestly for the benefit of the entire band! But LIE-berals see no benefit in eliminating endemic corruption!)

The chosen antidote to these intolerable and chronic issues has, in part, been growing government intervention and an increasing reliance on Aboriginal traditional knowledge.

(IN other news, Aboriginal Knowledge has UTTERLY FAILED to deal with modern technology! Consider the case of a Manitoba native family of ten- living in a house full of sewage- either they clogged to sewer pipe and it froze and ruptured, or the builders of the house failed to insulate the sewer pipe properly where it passes through the floor into the crawl space under the house and then connects to the septic system. In any case the sewer pipe froze and ruptured and now every time a toilet is flushed or somebody has a shower- ALL the waste water pools under the house- with disgusting results!)

(A native house full of sewage demonstrates sheer stupidity! If it already reeks then WHY add to it? Why not take a pail into the bushes and do your deed AWAY from the house so you can eat dinner without gagging on the reek from the mess under your floor? Why not have your shower at the local rec centre while you wait for spring and for the mess under the floor to dry up? And once its dry then shouldn’t somebody crawl under the place- maybe on a sheet of plastic so as not to get FILTHY while working to PATCH the old pipe? But aboriginal “Knowledge does not cover patching ABS pipe so it cannot be done? And apparently the average reserve is such a pest hole that the only place to get ABS pipe patching equipment is an airplane flight away in some white town? No wonder natives drink? Stupidity is a bad business?)

To any reasonable observer, neither is working particularly well.

In a 2008 book that received too little attention, Professor Frances Widdowson (a Metis and faculty member at Mount Royal College in Alberta) and her husband, Albert Howard, who has worked as a consultant for government and native groups, offer a compelling, if not troubling, argument for the perpetual woes afflicting Canada’s reserves.

In Disrobing the Aboriginal Industry — The Deception behind Indigenous Cultural Preservation, Widdowson and Howard meticulously expose the new “Aboriginal Industry,” an increasingly powerful “amalgamation of lawyers, consultants, anthropologists, linguists, accountants and other occupations that thrive on aboriginal dependency.”

(These are the sort of people that some Toronto Sun writers refer to as “pverty pimps”!)

In short, there are a lot of people who make a lot of money from the misery of the ordinary people living on reserves. This legion of interdependent freeloaders is, for the most part, hidden from public scrutiny. They operate behind closed doors, unless they are in court.

(In other words it is typical LIE-beral style business as usual! Any bad thing that happens as a result of LIE-beral policy is ALWAYS- so LIE-berals insust- a one off accident- such mistakes are NEVER admitted to be part of an obvious pattern of LIE-beral failures! LIE-berals accuse anybody who contradicts their position of being racist!)

Even then, they use atavistic arguments to justify present day policies that perpetuate poverty and dependency in Aboriginal communities, ad infinitum, at a cost of approximately $8 billion annually.

So much so that “The activities of the Aboriginal Industry, in fact, are cynically referred to in bureaucratic circles as ‘The Great Game,’” the authors write, a characterization that’s broadly present in government.

The most direct and caustic criticism in the book came from David Crombie, a former Toronto mayor and former minister of Indian and Indigenous affairs between 1984 and 1986.

Crombie, a Progressive Conservative, who is still frequently asked to take on leadership roles, is not known to have a short fuse. However, he exploded in a scathing condemnation of the despicably venal “Great Game”.

Hardly naive, like Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien before him, Crombie nevertheless “thought he could transform aboriginal policy during his tenure in the department.”

This is some of what the usually restrained, Crombie said, quoted on page 20 of Disrobing the Aboriginal Industry.

“You get a whole bunch of obfuscation, meeting after meeting, word games, magic shows of all kinds. And that’s why so much of Indian Affairs is a convoluted process of negotiation, meeting, consultations. … There is a consultation industry, and that means work for politicians, lawyers. It means money for Indians. It means everything but getting on with the task at hand.”

The juggernaut that is the Aboriginal Rights Movement is now in ascendency and its objective is to remain largely segregated from mainstream society, even if it means its constituents — the often powerless community members who are not connected to the leaders by kinship or other ties — continue to live in abject poverty, with little education.

“They reveal the arrogance of many Aboriginal leaders who reject financial accountability for public funding, trivialize spousal and child sexual abuse, and defend their personal and kinship privileges,” Widdowson and Howard wrote.

(The TRULY UGLY reality is that if you erase the name “Aboriginal Rights Movement” and replace it with “Black Libes Matter” then you will have EXACTLY the same level and style of condemnation! LIE-beral multicutural policy is an utter failure!Even worse, LIE-beral;s are now setting up the same Reserve style ghetto for the Muslim refugees they have brought here. After a year- about 90 percent of govt sponsored Muslims are still un-employed! LIE-berals are creating a social and cultural disaster with their policies!)

There are many legitimate issues facing First Nations communities today that will require a firm and consistent political will to resolve.

The incarceration rate of Indigenous people is a national shame and youth suicide on reserves a national crisis.

(Sun writer Bonikowski wrote an article a decade back explaining that in any legal case where there was a choice of a fine or of jail time- natives were far more likely than white people to chose jail time!)

Decades of federal efforts, not to mention billions of taxpayers’ dollars, have done shockingly little to address these and other fundamental challenges facing average Indigenous people living on — and off — reserves.

So too with traditional measures, the diversion court system, and prayers.

(Sun writer onikowski also wrote about 2 burglars- one white and one native- and both got caught with the white guy doing 30 months in jail and the native being shipped back to his reserve for a “healing ceremony” in a sweat lodge! And natives want to whine about being treated unfairly? HAHAHAHA! All this is to illustrate that the LIE-beral hug a thug approach to crime has been a complete failure!)

Little is likely to change as long as Canadian governments and some First Nations leaders continue to prop up an Aboriginal industry that feeds on the misery of average people, instead of helping them.

(Oh....Cdn govts are ALL at fault? WRONG! Conservative govt of Harper had solid rules in place that would have brought some sanity to native life on reserves by eliminating the endemic corruption that is too often part of reserve life! Too bad LIE-berals gutted that legislation to placate POVERTY PIMPS!)

Lori Loughlin's daughter knew about alleged university bribes: Report

Olivia Jade Giannulli -- daughter of Full House star Lori Loughlin -- reportedly says she wants to return to USC. INSTAGRAM
The “influencer” daughter of Full House star Lori Loughlin was in on the scheme to grease her way into university with a $500,000 bribe.
Loughlin and her fashion designer hubby Mossimo Giannulli are accused of bribing officials to get Olivia Jade Giannulli and her sister into the University of Southern California.
She got in as a member of the rowing team.
Olivia Jade does not row and she has wafer-thin academic qualifications.

Her parents are among the well-heeled accused of slipping officials hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks to get their kids into America’s most prestigious universities.
Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman has already pleaded guilty.

Two more high-fliers plead guilty in college bribe scandal
At first, Olivia Jade denied any knowledge of the scam but now a source tells Us Weekly she knew all along.
“Olivia fully knew what her parents did to get her into USC, but didn’t think there was anything wrong with it,” a source told the magazine.
“She didn’t get into any other California schools.”

Loughlin, 54, and her 55-year-old hubby have pleaded not guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering conspiracy in the nationwide college cheating scam.
Sources told the New York Post that Olivia Jade desperately wants to return to USC since she “didn’t get officially kicked out.”
“She wants to come out looking like she’s changed, learned life lessons and is growing as a person, so she for sure wants people to think she is interested in her education,” one source told the tabloid.
Like many other untalented 19-year-olds, Olivia Jade had been mainly focused on her beauty “influencer” career.

But when the scandal exploded over the world’s front pages, many high-flying sponsors pulled the plug. What she really wants, one friend said, is to be back on top of the social media “influencer” world again.
“Olivia has been emotional in the midst of all of this and definitely wants to make a comeback and still wants to be a beauty influencer,” her friend told Us.
“She understands she needs to hide out for now and lay low, but she’s anxious to be back in the spotlight again and thinks that over time she’ll be able to come back.”
So what is the point of having money if you can't use it to your advantage?
