Congress is thoroughly corrupt and the mechanism for bribery is ‘speaking fees’ which are outrageously high for some bloviating politician yapping to unappreciative or bored out of their minds audiences. These corrupt politicians soliciting bribes often hand over these to ‘charities’ run by themselves or family members which do little to nothing for anyone. Today’s story is about Hillary Clinton, who was paid an insane amount of money by the University of Las Vegas for a few minute’s speech about student debt!
First, about this school and its administrators who exploit ill-educated students who think they can succeed at a ‘university’ but instead, are tricked into taking NON-COLLEGE level courses for no credit while paying a fortune for this: Vegas Student Would Rather Go $100K in Debt Than Attend UNLV | Nevada News and Views gives one student’s example:

I attended UNLV for 2 years. After being forced to drop math classes 4 semesters in a row because they were all being taught by graduate teacher assistants that had absolutely no clue how to teach I left. The numerous times I went to chemistry, literature and biology teachers for ‘during officer hours’ help and being immediately told to hire a tutor just added to my realization that UNLV professors, not all of them just a damn lot of them, were just not interested in teaching or couldn’t be bothered to. I have talked to many students since then…
So, for several semesters this poor student badgered teachers to teach him 9th-10th grade math and chemistry and they told him to hire a private tutor…duh! The school should have never let the kid enter in the first place since this student was not prepared for college.
But the let all these poor suckers in because they can load at least two or they hope, three years of heavy debt on them, give themselves pay raises and the student will carry this burden which now is well over a trillion dollars on all our students, for the rest of his life!
Colleges are terrified public outcry to stop this banditry and stop the scam schools will derail their gravy train so they fix this by bribing especially liberal politicians to keep this up. And the liberals respond by reasoning, they are giving these poor saps a ‘second chance’ after they fail high school!
But the degrees won by such students is less than 25%. The vast majority simply get a lifetime ball and chain plus low wage jobs and when retiring, a much reduced pension from SS.
The ever-craven Mrs. Clinton was invited by one of the worst universities in the US, a ‘fourth tier’ college which is the lowest of the low. Even so, they are charging an arm and a leg to students to go there now that all the colleges, seeing gold in them thar student debt, are rushing to raise fees on the poor kids to the limit.
This hideous fake liberal told these victims of this educational scam that they shouldn’t be burdened by high student debt! Hillary Clinton says college should be more affordable at Las Vegas university event | Daily Mail Online
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton accepted a $225,000 speaking fee Monday night from a university where she said young Americans should be able to afford college without incurring massive debt.
The check will be cashed by Clinton’s family foundation – not by the politician herself – but angry students at the University of Nevada Las Vegas complained earlier this year that the money should have been devoted to scholarships instead.
UNLV tuition has nearly tripled since 2004 and is slated to go up 4 per cent for each of the next four years.
Student loan debt ‘can feel like an anchor tied to their feet dragging them down,’ Clinton said of students on Monday.
Duh, Madame C.! Yes, it is a very destructive thing to start one’s life deep in debt and a degree from that school is well neigh worthless. Madame C. whines that she isn’t getting this loot for herself, it goes to her darling daughter and husband who run her ‘charities’. Here is all about this stupid ‘Clinton Family Foundation’:
We believe that the best way to unlock human potential is through the power of creative collaboration. That’s why we build partnerships between businesses, NGOs, governments, and individuals everywhere to work faster, better, and leaner; to find solutions that last; and to transform lives and communities from what they are today to what they can be, tomorrow.
Because of our work, 26,000 American schools are providing kids with healthy food choices in an effort to eradicate childhood obesity; 28,000 African farmers have improved their crops; 248 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions are being reduced in cities worldwide; $20 million is being invested in small- and medium-sized businesses in Colombia; 8.2 million people have benefited from lifesaving HIV/AIDS medications…
This, in a nutshell, is why liberals are so insane about weather statistics and strive hard to lie about this matter and bend a lot of energy into convincing people they aren’t freezing but roasting even when it is obviously very cold.
They make money off of the stupid CO2 sequestration ‘permission to pollute’ derivatives game. If CO2 isn’t causing ‘global warming’ (which isn’t happening!) then the CO2 pollution sales will drop like a rock. Worthless.
Charging people for using fossil fuels claiming this is making it very hot is insane if it isn’t heating up at all. Even after all the true science is showing clearly there is no global warming and indeed, we are entering definitely a classic 30 year cooling cycle as usual, heading towards an inevitable Ice Age in the next 5,000 or so years, it takes tons of propaganda to claim it is heating up like never before which is, of course, utterly a lie.
Never in the last 4,000 years has it been as warm as during the Minoan Era.
Anyhow, the vast bulk of the ‘charity’ go towards pay for the heads and board of directors which are all Clinton cronies or family members who just bought a prime Manhattan office location for their activities and which is quite obviously a platform for more power mongering by the operatic bellowing Hillary.
And concern was rising inside and outside the organization about Douglas J. Band, a onetime personal assistant to Mr. Clinton who had started a lucrative corporate consulting firm — which Mr. Clinton joined as a paid adviser — while overseeing the Clinton Global Initiative, the foundation’s glitzy annual gathering of chief executives, heads of state, and celebrities.
The review set off more than a year of internal debate, and spurred an evolution in the organization that included Mr. Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, taking on a dominant new role as the family grappled with the question of whether the foundation — and its globe-spanning efforts to combat AIDS, obesity and poverty — would survive its founder.
This fall, Mrs. Clinton and her staff will move into offices at the foundation’s new headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, occupying two floors of the Time-Life Building. Amid speculation about her 2016 plans, Mrs. Clinton is adding major new initiatives on women, children and jobs to what has been renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Worried that the foundation’s operating revenues depend too heavily on Mr. Clinton’s nonstop fund-raising, the three Clintons are embarking on a drive to raise an endowment of as much as $250 million…
Today, big-name companies vie to buy sponsorships at prices of $250,000 and up, money that has helped subsidize the foundation’s annual operating costs. Last year, the foundation and two subsidiaries had revenues of more than $214 million.
Yet the foundation’s expansion has also been accompanied by financial problems. In 2007 and 2008, the foundation also found itself competing against Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign for donors amid a recession. Millions of dollars in contributions intended to seed an endowment were diverted to other programs, creating tension between Mr. Magaziner and Mr. Band. The foundation piled up a $40 million deficit during those two years, according to tax returns. Last year, it ran more than $8 million in the red.
Hllary isn’t the only one who went from broke to multi-multimillionaire thanks to our crazy charity laws and bribe collecting such as when she was Secretary of State. Even in the corrupt Congress era after the Civil War, civil servants and government officials as well as Congress didn’t accept so many obvious bribes.
Which is why we have so many billionaires with so many peons deep in debt and dropping pay and the gulf between the rich and poor yawn ominously wider and wider.
