The Clinton’s get rich off of promoting world’s largest for-profit University


While the media is quick to attack Trump and his rebuttal outrage regarding Trump University, Bill Clinton and thus his little lady Hillary as well are getting rich on Bill’s being paid and promoting the world’s largest for-profit University with sharp business practices,…. well, I’m getting ahead of myself. You read the fine points from American Thinker: (Update at the Daily Caller link at end of post)

As accusations swirl around Donald Trump for the complaints filed against Trump University, few people know about how Bill Clinton was hired in 2010 to be Chancellor for the Laureate Network, the world’s largest for-profit university network.

Not just Bill Clinton but other Clinton friends from the past were hired to promote the university.  Investors in the vast multinational university include Henry Kravis, George Soros, Steve Cohen and Paul Allen.  One of the investors in Laureate University, SAC Capital Advisors LP, is a hedge fund that had to pay a $1.2 billion dollar settlement to the US Dept. of Justice to settle allegations of insider trading.

One student named Larissa Da Silva complains that when she enrolled in IBMR, a Brazilian branch of Laureate, the admissions officer promised her a 30 percent discount on tuition.  Two years later the deal evaporated and her monthly tuition cost jumped to 791 reais.  She summarized the change of policy by stating “I feel completely deceived.”  Apparently the fine print states that grants and tuition discounts may be temporary, so it’s her fault for not lawyering up before she enrolled in the Clinton-promoted college.  

 

Bill Clinton has personally been paid to make appearances promoting Laureate University in countries such as Malaysia, Peru and Spain.  By January 2014 Laureate University had 800,000 students worldwide and its annual revenue was $4 billion, far larger than the revenues of Trump University.

Laureate has taken over struggling colleges by using high-pressure marketing tactics such as “turbocharging enrollment” using students as telemarketers.  Laureate University was investigated by the Rio State Legislature’s Investigative Commission on Private Universities in Brazil.   Robson Leite, a Rio state legislator who led the probe concluded:  “They have turned education into a commodity that focuses more on profit than knowledge”

Recently a judge released sealed documents on Trump University, but no one knows where the documents are that show how much money Bill Clinton was paid for his promotion of Laureate, or what other financial connections there may be to the Clinton Foundation.  And while the Trump University playbook has been a topic of controversy, no one seems interested in the high pressure sales tactics used by Laureate, the world’s largest for-profit university group.  What voters may soon realize is that every time the media attack Donald Trump for something, it turns out that the Clintons were involved first, to a far greater extent.  This also proves what Trump has been saying; that the media are very dishonest and focus only on him.

      I had picked it up earlier, but a lot more came out as the day wore on. Someone sent me a link to an old story. Turns out multiple law suits way back when.. It will be interesting to see how Trump takes this on.

    Off Topic: Why we love the asswipes on the left: This morning on Morning Joe Spunky and Tadpole (who remembers that kids show from the 50’s) aka Joe & Mika, spent quite a bit of time rumonating gleefully about Paul Ryan’s brave and correct decision not to publically support Trump and being wise enough to hold out such proclamation until the eleventh hour if ever. Just now Paul Ryan announced his backing for Trump. That my friends is why I watch the enemy each morning instead of acetbic CNN and the FOX leg crossers.

      You and I are cut from the same cloth. I am up early. A leftover from my days of work. I also await the twins to opine the the world’s great events. I must say, I reached a limit today. So Ryan didn’t want to support Trump because he wants to run in 4 years caused me to click off.

      Nothing sticks since the media gives it no attention. Trump will take her on. She ought to keep her mouth shut about Trump College. This is far worse.It effects thousands of students. A 15 percent grad rate.

    And let’s not forget Moe Ginsberg and his wife steered campaign nonprofit money to their family and friends during his senatorial campaigns, his wife’s mismanagement of Burlington Colleges finances (look it up) led to the schools closing this past May 27th. She of course left with a $200,000 severance package after quietly being ‘let go.” it seems leftists are never fired. A n honest, competent and fair press and media would have a field day running him and his sandal and sack dress wearing beastly wife out of the northeast, never mind Washington D.C. and the presidential campaign, along with the Clintons. Unfortunately though as Dr Michael savage has said, paraphrasing, The press is no longer the fourth estate but, rather, a fifth column.
