Sarah Palin tries to jump on the bandwagon condemning those who cheated to get kids into college. Seems to have forgotten her past.

First here is a link to the article that described the college admission scandal courtesy of CNN:

The biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted in the US is a harsh reminder that wealthy families can cheat their way to even greater privilege. And some say this scandal is just the tip of the iceberg.

Federal prosecutors say 50 people took part in a scheme that involved either cheating on standardized tests or bribing college coaches and school officials to accept students as college athletes — even if the student had never played that sport.

Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among the dozens of parents facing federal charges. Others charged include nine coaches at elite schools; two SAT/ACT administrators; an exam proctor; a college administrator; and a CEO who admitted he wanted to help the wealthiest families get their kids into elite colleges.

It was all orchestrated by William Rick Singer, CEO of a college admissions prep company called The Key. Singer pleaded guilty to four charges Tuesday and admitted that everything a prosecutor accused him of “is true.”

“There were essentially two kinds of fraud that Singer was selling,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling said.

“One was to cheat on the SAT or ACT, and the other was to use his connections with Division I coaches and use bribes to get these parents’ kids into school with fake athletic credentials.”

Some parents paid between $15,000 and $75,000 per test to help their children get a better score, prosecutors said.

Singer arranged for a third-party — usually Mark Riddell — to take the test secretly in the students’ place or replace their responses with his own.

So I think we can all agree that this is a terrible thing, right?

I mean this is clearly a case of the wealthy using their money and power to game the system and allow their undeserving brats to take a slot away from a more deserving and hardworking student.

I mean get a load of Lori Loughlin’s daughter:

Some hardworking kid lost their shot at an elite university education for this waste of space?

Now I have to admit that I did not really see this scandal as particularly political. I mean surely both conservatives and liberals hate people who cheat, right? 

Not exactly, you see the conservatives have seen this as an excuse to not just attack the people who cheated the system, but the system itself.

The Right Wing blogosphere has spent the last day or so unloading on higher education, Hollywood elites, and Hillary Clinton. (Yeah don’t ask me how her name came up.)

And of course, if there is a scent of blood in the water, guess who has to come slithering out of the woodwork?

So proud of Piper pursuing higher educ the ethical, legal, RIGHT way as she graduates this year – in the midst of revelation of all these “celebrity” kids getting into colleges via bribes, threats, etc., Piper’s desire to be a nurse (to serve others in their time of need!) makes my heart soar. Despite some holding the “Sarah Palin lineage” against her, Pjper will succeed – by the Grace of God my baby girl will survive & thrive the right way‼️

I really wish that Piper was not in this photo because I don’t have anything against the youngest daughter, but she put her front and center so Palin clearly does not care about the backlash. 

Now here is the problem with Palin jumping on this particular bandwagon and making the case that her children have earned their success.

No, they have not.

Unless of course, you believe that Track orchestrated a military career that kept him away from the front line, got himself sent to rehab instead of jail, and is paying for his house and living expenses all on his own.

Or perhaps you believe that Bristol got herself on all of those reality shows through her own hard work, or actually graduated from high school with a 3.497 GPA, or that mommy’s money did not pay for her attorney fees while she was fighting Levi for custody of Tripp. 

No Palin has greased the wheels for her kids from day one, and that includes rescuing them from their own stupidity over and over again. 

She is like these rich parents that she is attacking in almost every single way.

With the possible exception that most of them were much more successful and had much more money to work with than she did, of course.

    Actually, if you don’t care about school, don’t plan on being there often, you are just thinking about the football games and the parties . . . USC is perfect for you.

      I would not give the young woman grief about her comments on an entertainment site, that’s unfortunate. Many kids whose parents pushed them into college have the same attitude. The problem is how the parents got them into college. Perhaps instead of falsifying entrance credentials, the wealthy could give the money in the form of scholarships to pay the way for other students. The wealthy will always have easy career connections anyway.

        Howza bout the wealthy can just donate millions direct to the university to buy a full pimp building and some pimp professors? The university can name that shit fior them and the spawn can just bypass the admittance process totally!

        Leave all the honest do good shit for the peons and proles.

        KUSHNER STYLE!

        ” When they named a University of Missouri sports arena after their daughter, billionaire Wal-Mart heirs Nancy and Bill Laurie pronounced themselves “very proud parents.”

        But this week, they found themselves stripping their daughter Paige’s name from the building, after allegations that she paid a roommate $20,000 to do her coursework at the University of Southern California.

        Elizabeth Paige Laurie, 22, graduated from USC this year. But her first-semester roommate, Elena Martinez, says Laurie hired her to write her papers, prepare her oral reports and even exchange e-mail with her professors in nearly every class she took for four years.

        The Laurie family will say only that the academic record of their only child is a “private matter.” But after the allegations aired on ABC’s “20/20″ on Friday, the family agreed–under pressure from students–to take Paige’s name off the basketball arena at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

        The Lauries had paid $25 million in 2001 to help build the arena. That bought them a luxury suite and the right to name the facility the Paige Sports Arena.”

    Sounds like Trump University may have worked out better for these elite children of the corn. Yeah, Palin is always trying to make herself sound so holier than thou. What’s with that? I would have bought it all if she hadn’t done the boob job, exposed her ass by wearing jeans that were for 16 year olds, and all that shit she did to be a major prick teaser back in her heyday when she obviously wasn’t getting any in her marriage. But when the hell is she gonna stop trying to come off as a fucking saint? Bitch that boat sailed a long time ago. Oh, yeah and go ahead and live vicariously through your’ kids that haven’t fucked up yet. See how that works out. And don’t give your’ Palin name airs. Yes, we try to flee the other way when we hear that name only because we were done with it 14 years ago and yet you just keep coming back trying to sound so pious.

      There there, dear, a grandmother here patting your hand to say some people are just like that because they have absolutely no merit and do such to garner attention. She was put out to dry, poor thing, and you can bet that the esteemed Piper has been on birth control pills from the time those nipples started to sprout off her chest. Rude? Maybe, but truth. The ? is, of all that supposed wealth they have, how much was by ill-gotten gains.

    The closest Piper will be to ever being a nurse is giving her latest boyfriend a sponge bath

    • Anonymous March 13, 2019 at 5:03 pm

      True dat,
      It is admirable, but aBSN is one ofthehardest degrees to get. I doubt she has the dna given brain power for it. But, maybe Saree thinks a nurse’s aid is the same thing. I recall Pipes had trouble with math. Nurses need to be good at math.
      But, hey, I will be watching to see her progress.

    whahahaha! Didn’t you know that she’d check in, I did! Not enough brains to handle the curriculum.
    CNA maybe, hope for LPN, but full blown RN? HAH! Yeah, right, and they’ll cover that up as well.
    Also too, anyone that thinks $$ doesn’t freely exchange hands to this day via that bunch and their cohorts should really pay attention.

    I regret Palin not taking a job with Trump just so we could witness her in cuffs leading from court after she was found guilty for multiple felonies including gross stupidity.

  6. nanna March 13, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    Piper is pursuing higher education the ethical legal right way? Piper is in high school, is that higher education in Palin’s mind?

    There is nothing in Piper’s background to suggest she has what it takes to graduate from university with any professional qualifications. Nobody else in her lazy family ever did. None of the Palins have ever had real jobs except her father who wasted no time dumping his job after his wife got lucky.

    Piper will be eighteen in a few weeks, old enough now to birth her first money-making blessing.

  7. Anonymous March 13, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    NO WAY. There’s such a thing as boards that you have to pass, full blown RN, and you have to keep with education/testing your whole career to keep that status.
    “Ah, look! Piper knows how to take blood pressure, weigh people, and take their temperature!”
    CNA all the way.

      As if.

      Watch Piper end up becoming an Isis bride next week.

      She’s just chunky. It’s time for her to start the “poop tea” diet, what’s taken her so long?

      My thoughts exactly. When I first saw Piper’s picture, I thought she looked like she’s ready to give birth in the grass. Looks like a maternity top trying to hide a round belly. Or maybe she’s about to come down with mono.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch…the realtor in texass drops a deuce and looks rather …um…well

    ”She does not affect me’: Bristol Palin says she’s only had ONE conversation with her son’s stepmom in SIX YEARS – as she opens up about her relationship with both of her exes in candid Q&A

    Bristol, 28, opened up about her former fiancé Levi Johnston’s wife Sunny during an impromptu Q&A on Instagram Stories Tuesday
    ‘I don’t watch her Instagram nor do I care to. The only time I’ve ever had a conversation with her has been filming for Teen Mom,’ she said
    Bristol later noted that she doesn’t follow Sunny or her ex-husband Dakota Meyer on Instagram, saying she is ‘unphased and unaffected by anything that they do’
    While she doesn’t follow Dakota, Sunny, or Levi, they do follow each other
    Dakota, 30, called Levi a ‘great father’ and Sunny a ‘loving mother’ in an interview that took place in October

      The only conversation Brissy has had with Sunny was Brissy demanding money. It’s all Brissy ever does, she is damaging those children.

    Is this one of those online schools, where you can get a “degree” in physician assistant in nine weeks? that would be a doctor in palin’s book.

    palin has always been anti education, i am surprised she didn’t bring up her own “degree” (that doens’t exist) in journalism.

    A new day in God’s world, and I’m still guffawing at her. I mean, really, people actually believe that shit?

  15. Beaglemom March 14, 2019 at 3:44 am

    Well, I wish Piper the best if she’s really planning to train for a nursing career. I’ve always had great admiration for all the nurses I’ve ever come in contact with. If you’re in a hospital, nurses are the people you will come in contact with the most and I’ve never encountered a nurse who wasn’t professional and caring at the same time. One of the things I’ve noticed about faux-celebrity families like the Palins and the Kardashians is that no one in the younger generation aspires to become educated and work in a profession like education or medicine. So Piper’s going against the norm. I hope she can stick it out. Her family will be of no help at all.

  16. mike from iowa March 14, 2019 at 4:25 am

    I’ma guess some nurses get access to excess prescription drugs for “privileged” siblings who shouldn’t be seen within miles of civilization. Imagine what could happen if guns and drugs and unstable upbringing ever got together at the old folk’s home.

    https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/lori-loughlins-daughter-was-in-usc-officials-yacht-when-mother-was-charged This could get awkward. All Loughlin has to say is she never met USC and wouldn’t kn ow it if she saw it.

    I haven’t seen any proof that Sarah actually has a degree of any kind.

    Even if she does, I’ll be she slept her way to it. I can’t think of any other legitimate reason to transfer to six different colleges in four years except that you’ve slept with all the professors and still don’t have enough credits.

  19. AKRNHSNC March 24, 2019 at 3:46 am

    I became a Nurse Practitioner over 20 years ago, after having been an R.N. for almost 10 yrs. I can’t picture any of Palin’s kids ever being in a profession that serves others, it’s hard work. No matter how many times you’re scheduled 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., I can’t tell you how many times I didn’t walk out of the hospital until 8 a.m. or later. They’ve never had an example of someone serving others in their lives, Sarah’s bullshit about her servant’s heart, a line she used when interviewing with Steve Schmidt, had me laughing out loud. She didn’t even take care of her kids, let alone give a damn about others. We’ve read the stories of her paying little to no attention to them growing up and we’ve seen Bristol’s pitiful behavior as a mother, using her kids to trap their fathers into paying financial settlements or taking them to court with her bullshit excuses because she had the means to do so, thanks to her mother. There’s no doubt Sarah had a lot to do with Track and his problems, although I don’t think Todd was much of a help, either, since he let Sarah get away with whatever she wanted. Bristol had said she wanted to be a nurse, too, when she was seeing Levi. She’s had quite a few things she planned on doing, aesthetician, R.N., interior designer and now, she’s in real estate or took classes, not sure if she’s ever completed anything she’s started, but would love to know how she’s financing her lifestyle as she’s definitely high maintenance. I had forgotten about Sarah’s transfer to the 6 different colleges mentioned above. I watched Game Change earlier this evening after having seen it when it first came out. I had also forgotten how stupid she was, definitely led the way for the GOP to accept someone as unfit as Trump to enter the White House. Every time I think we won’t ever hear from her again, she’s popping her head up as if she’s relevant. Did she say anything about how Trump attacked her former running mate, John McCain, or did she ignore him attacking a deceased POW and hero, as she repeatedly referred to him? I’d expect the latter, she’d never go against Trump, too cowardly to do so.

    If by some chance Piper has turned out differently than her siblings and really does want to become a nurse, I hope she goes to school far from home to get away from the influence of her crazy family, then there might be hope for her. However, it’s not a glamorous profession by any means, it’s not going to make her a millionaire and she’ll work long hours. I do make a very good living but it comes after many years of hard work and dedicating myself to my patients. So if she means well, all the power to her, otherwise, don’t bother.
