"The appearance of this stupid new 'Bulwark' thing is useful insofar as it tells you that the only thing many conservatives think is worth conserving is their own paycheck. Even if you basically have to become fluffers for a left-wing billionaire. It also reminds me of the old adage that the modern world has divided itself into conservatives and progressives. The business of progressives is to go on screwing things up. And it is the business of conservatives is make sure that the screw-ups never get corrected."

(h/t GK Chesterton)

That *is* a good question - I decided to look it up. Here's a page with a chart of the actual charges filed:

https://tinyurl.com/y48f2xpr

Primarily mail fraud, wire fraud, and racketeering, backed up by conspiracy to commit all three.

That chart tells us why this broke open now - two of the defendants on the top of the list have already plead guilty. Obviously they've turned States Evidence against everyone else, which is why the Feds let the info go public.

Serious question--what actual law was broken in these academic bribery scandals? "



That *is* a good question - I decided to look it up. Here's a page with a chart of the actual charges filed:



https://tinyurl.com/y48f2xpr



Primarily mail fraud, wire fraud, and racketeering, backed up by conspiracy to commit all three.



That chart tells us why this broke open now - two of the defendants
on the top of the list have already plead guilty. Obviously they've
turned States Evidence against everyone else, which is why the Feds let
the info go public.

Tax fraud among others. This was done through a "charity."
Posted by: blaster at March 13, 2019 11:16 AM (9VeU0)

to elaborate, Singer, the perpetrator, set up a fake 501c3 for these parents to "donate" and then he used the money out of it to bribe coaches, pay test takers, etc. Meanwhile, the parents were taking tax deductions for their donations. That's why the IRS is involved. Most of the donations were in the $200,000-$400,000 range, one CEO "donated" $1.5 M. Big payments, and big deductions. That they knew were going to a sham charity for the purpose of defrauding and bribing.

the ACT and SAT testing services are the standard college entrance exam across the country. This guy was able to have tests "corrected' , tests taken by ringers who were not the students, etc. That in itself is a huge issue, one that is still being investigated.

The NCAA will be involved because coaches were lying to the athletic departments in saying that some of these students were "recruits" which allowed them to receive fully paid trips to the colleges to be "recruited" for athletic teams. They weren't offered scholarships per the DOJ atty. yesterday, but were accepted into the college because of the coach had offered them a place on the teams( Stanford sailing team,, Yale women's soccer) . All fraudulent, the Yale soccer player had never played a single competitive game of soccer in her life.

Posted by: BlackOrchid at March 13, 2019 11:31 AM (Rarvo)

The NCAA isn't on top of every recruit. The individual member schools have compliance departments that are required to monitor all recruiting and all interactions with student athletes The schools will self report compliance issues to the NCAA and their correction of those issues and the NCAA then decides if that correction was adequate or if additional sanctions from the NCAA is required. The only way the NCAA initiates an investigation is if they get a report filed directly to them accusing a school or player of wrongdoing. Anyone can file a report, including you or I. Otherwise, they have to rely on the member schools doing the reporting( there are serious penalties for not reporting, the dreaded "loss of institutional control", which has resulted in many a school losing scholarships, championships, bowl bids, etc.)

The NCAA is made up of hundreds of small, medium and large colleges and universities who are represented to the NCAA by single individuals. Those individuals sit on committees, etc. And they are who actually determine punishments, rules, regulations, etc. There are student athlete reps there also.
The administration for the NCAA is actually rather small and the compliance/investigative section is small. People don't realize the NCAA can't subpoena people, they can't demand private records, phone calls, etc. they have to rely on investigations by law enforcement for those records and information.

But they will most certainly be involved in what happens now with their member schools violating the NCAA rules and regs, which will be info they get from the DOJ. The DOJ would be able to get information on compliance records, etc. sent to the NCAA from these schools as part of their investigation.

235 The push for self driving cars also is economical. If you can have robot cars driving 24/7 (with just enough down time to gas up or recharge), then it would be much more efficient than having cars sitting 95% of the time in a driveway or parking garage. Would need a lot less space for all that parking too.

It is an appealing idea. You need a ride, you hail a robot cars, get to your destination. Rinse and repeat.

Might as well. They haven't had an execution since 2006, and a grand total of 13 since the death penalty was reinstated in 1972 or 73. And yet

California rejected two initiatives to repeal the death penalty by popular vote in 2012 and 2016, and it adopted in 2016 another proposal to expedite its appeal process. Wiki

He said in an interview that he and the other Beatles were at a party somewhere and Peter Fonda was there, dropping acid.

But the reality is that by the '80s they WERE Cadillacs, and so were Chevys, Buicks, and everything else.

GM ate itself.

Back in the '30s Sloan wrote that GM was careful to (a) maintain price-point separation between its brands and (b) price its brands at the top end of each segment.

But the managers he hired and promoted destroyed that after the war, and by the '80s there was basically no distinction, either in material quality or in price, between a Caprice and a Sedan De Ville. It'd become a race to the bottom, Chevy managers wanted an upscale car and Cadillac wanted volume and so they all met at the lower-middle end of the market and there was no room in that narrow niche for all GM's brands.

Rent a car in Chicago and hit the road for wherever! But it turns into a regular driving vehicle when off the highway.. and you are all rested.

A helicopter is flying over Rome with a statue of Jesus hanging from below (the movie's kinda weird). The helicopter flies over an apartment building with five beautiful women sunbathing. Our main character, a paparazzo, leans out of the helicopter and tries to pick up the women, despite the sounds of the flying machine drowning everything out. All five of the women are waving and having a good time, and exposing those armpit hairs...

One of the most amusing stories about Peter Fonda (maybe in the end what he'll be most remembered for) came from John Lennon. He said in an interview that he and the other Beatles were at a party somewhere and Peter Fonda was there, dropping acid. Fonda walked up to them and said "I know what it's like to be dead!" which then got turned into a famous lyric in "She said, She said."

395 An absent heart
Isaiah 29:13

Devotion engages the heart in prayer. It is not an easy task for the lips to pray while the heart is absent from it. The very essence of prayer is the spirit of devotion.

Without devotion, prayer is empty, a vain round of words. Sad to say, much of this prayer prevails n the church today. This is a busy age, bustling and active, and this bustling spirit has invaded the church of God. Its religious performances are many.

True worship finds congeniality in the heart and spirit of devotion.

Prayer by E.M. Bounds:

Lord, I want to engage all of me when I come to you in prayer. Please give me a heart and spirit of devotion so that I can truly worship you.

yeah, it was $2.49, and I had $2 credit for foregoing the 2 day Amazon delivery (takes a few extra days, order each item separately, get $1 credit for each).


I commented on it the other day, the theme of "save your friend, give up the plutonium and kill millions". Ace disagreed with me, saying it was not a political message, I was too late to see that to respond then.


But if you watch it, see if you think it is not the most serious "meme" deliberately delivered in the movie. I thought it reflected the Obama theme of "if we can save one illegal child, we should surrender the nation".


Whether political or not, it seemed odd to me that both his higher ups praised him for that attitude in the beginning , then at the end. And it was supported in the middle with a deliberate scene with the cute French cop, to reinforce the point, imo. Except for the end scene with the ex, it was probably the most deliberate messaging in the movie. But it was a real enjoyable movie, in any case.

I don't know if it was published elsewhere but I have it as part of a collection, "Car Sinister", edited by Robert Silverberg, Martin harry Greenberg and Joseph D. Olander, Avon, July 1979.

Unfortunately, the paperback's getting a bit yellow. It does have one of my favorite auto-related quotes: "Any grampa with his mind on his dyspepsia ought to be able to score six car lengths per block"...

Posted by: blaster at March 13, 2019 **He didn't often write stories with regular 20th century cars in them. Do you recall the title of it?

That was a short story by Alan Dean Foster in one of his compilations, IIRC. "If Johny Can't Drive" or something like that.

The Pontiac JJ (dad) took out a Cadillac "Marauder" (who took out the son's VW bug).

Has anyone else noticed the disproportionate amount of black hosts on the sports channels? I think the purpose is to impose their presence on White people to rub in the fact that they are being demographically dispossessed. But, I think the logic among those that don't see this is, "Well, blacks are more prevalent in high visibility sports ball franchises, so, it's only fair that they are more prevalent in reporting and commenting about such shit!" Of course, blacks must be numerically superior in fields they dominate, but Whites must provide them set-asides in areas they don't. Hey, it's only fair!

Ah. I often confuse Foster with Larry Niven, partly because of writing style, and because he adapted many of the Star Trek: Animated episodes into novels/novelettes. And one of them, "The Slaver Weapon," was written by Niven based on his own early short story. (Very good ST script, by the way. Spock, Sulu, and Uhura vs. the catlike aliens the kzinti.)

"Lingchi... translated variously as the slow process, the lingering death, or slow slicing, and also known as death by a thousand cuts, was a form of torture and execution used in China from roughly 900 CE until it was banned in 1905....

Lingchi was reserved for crimes viewed as especially severe, such as treason. Some Westerners were executed in this manner. Even after the practice was outlawed, the concept itself has still appeared across many types of media."

ha, good term. My one uncles thought it kinda crazy for people to keep horses, since we have tractors. They knew how much work it was to keep them ... still is.


One friend, kept her horse for like 35 years, mostly just retired for the last ten, and she paid for a nice stable and pasture. Very expensive indeed ... that is love and commitment.

493 Can someone please explain what laws the parents are
alleged to have broken? What they did is definitely slimey, but I
guess I was unaware that there are criminal laws against lying on
college applications. Or did they do more than lie on the applications?

Posted by: biancaneve at March 13, 2019 12:34 PM (hkMx0)


---

I'm kind of curious about this, too. Do college applications carry the weight of a sworn statement or something?

Now I can see how the colleges should be paying millions in fines and have administrators going to jail, but I'm not clear on the FBI level stuff the parents were doing.

The FBI says actress Lori Loughlin (LAWK'-lin) has been taken into
custody in connection with a scheme in which wealthy parents paid bribes
to get their children into top colleges.



FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says Loughlin is in custody Wednesday
morning in Los Angeles. She is scheduled to appear in court there in
the afternoon.

569 558 Read a funny twitter thread likening these kids to "Dreamers" who were dragged into these schools illegally by their parents, and it's not really "fair" that they should have to leave --- they have dreams of being doctors and such!


Yes, to those Lefties upset by these kids: why is their illegal invasion of USC and Yale so much worse than Dreamers? And don;t say financial privilege, because the kids who got to college legitimately have "academic privilege," right?

570 The only Niven story with a car being driven that I recall was "Deadlier Weapon" or something like that. Guy gets carjacked, convinces car jacker he's willing to slide the car, passenger-side first, into a bridge abutment at 100mph...

571 That sidebar piece on the basketball teams is illustrative. The LGBTQWERTY tribe is going to chase women out of sports. The upside of this is that no one is going to pay to watch trannies play each other, so the "women's" leagues will go bankrupt.

REFORGER was before my time - but man, did the NCOs have stories about what a cluster that was going to be.
If
the supposedly declassified shit I've read is true - hoo boy. Nobody
was going to survive. Widespread tactical nukes - the USSR willing to
sacrifice an entire first wave of infantry to radiation sickness. That
entire continent was going to be wiped.

No, just the hobo woman, who though clearly a loser, did not deserve to die that way. Car was barely damaged. The driver had a criminal record, and Uber should never had hired it. The road really wasn't a four-lane "highway", just an arterial road with traffic lights, and maybe a 40 mph speed limit, in downtown Tempe.

Hobo's family is suing Uber for a bundle of money, and I hope they win.

579 Step 1: Get loud and aggressive with far left talking points. Attack anyone at any time. GET ATTENTION. Facts don't matter.

Step 2: Get far left dimwits to give lots and lots of money to you.

Step 3: Keep the money.

580 self driving cars ... make sure your Google social credit score doesn't put you in the NSA file as a target. The net giants can defund you and shadow ban, but there are other subtle ways to eff with you.


Maybe the headrest doesn't explode, but a chip in your fridge suddenly causes problems, or any number of connected devices "act up". Or GPS takes you down an ally where you get SethRiched. Or that headrest emits some sonic heart attack wave, so sad. Or your plane suddenly goes into a dive ...

And one other thing: people with dark skin, wearing dark-colored clothing, are simply harder to see at night, period. Because less light reflects off them, no more, no less.

587 American Red Cross marketing handbook:
1. Harass everyone who has ever given blood. Daily phone calls, texts, emails. Even if they just made an appointment, don't let up. Even if they just gave blood and can't give for a while, don't let up.
2. When they show up for their donation, treat them like cattle. Let them know that the volunteers taking their blood are the real heroes. Make them wait, over and over again, at all stages of the process. Their time is not valuable. Keep asking them what their name is. Then when they're done, force them to wait 15 minutes while a 92 year old volunteer with dementia plys them with pretzels and fruit juice.

588 That's one of the selling points. "Oh, if we only have self-driving vehicles then people can drink and get stoned as much as they want!" Although it's not usually phrased that way.
Posted by: joncelli, because somebody had to at March 13, 2019 11:44 AM (RD7QR)

Well, unless the laws are changed, it wouldn't help, anyway. You could be charged with "having care and control of a motor vehicle while intoxicated".

592 had a humorous amber alert the other day. message on cell phone said "AMBER ALERT! for more information go to http://..."

so apparently i'm supposed to be surfing the web while driving for the children.
Posted by: Anachronda at March 13, 2019 12:07 PM (sGtp+)

I hate those amber alerts. I have them turned off in my phone, yet somehow one got through a couple of weeks ago. I just don't notice children much. Not a parent. If I see a child in the company of an adult, my default assumption is that the adult is a parent or is otherwise legally acting as a guardian.

If I were ever to witness what appears to be the actual kidnapping of a child, sure I will call the cops.

593 "It also reminds me of the old adage that the modern world has divided itself into conservatives and progressives. The business of progressives is to go on screwing things up. And it is the business of conservatives to make sure that the screw-ups never occur."

In Michigan it's called Ghetto Lottery. We have a substantial fund that evidently lawyers have tapped into to reward all jaywalkers. It's why our insurance is higher than any other state! Winning!

That's easy to correct, program them to hit some extra white people until the number is right.
