"Investigators at a special team at the Education Department have been reassigned, sidelined or told to concentrate on other work, current and former employees told the Times. The department has been whittled down from more than a dozen to just three people, who have been assigned to paperwork regarding student loan forgiveness.
“Betsy DeVos' decision to gut investigation into for-profit colleges is a disgrace,” said Cody Hounanian of StudentDebtCrisis.org. “Years of work at the Department of Education uncovered fraud and abuse at all levels of the for-profit college industry. Yet the Education Secretary wants to hamstring this vital work."

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
Where are all you right wing commenters that jump on the fluff pieces on Tomi Lauren, et. al, that are more opinion pieces. When TYT’s expose more fact based stuff that can’t be refuted, y’all seem to become very quiet, invisible even. Especially with Rachel Maddow’s throughly researched shows and L. O’Donnell’s stuff. Hard for y’all to deny those, ain’t it! You’ve had your 15 minutes boys.
I just don't understand how anyone would do this. She's worth hundreds of millions of dollars, like what more do you need? How are you ok with working class people getting defrauded by a for-profit college so you could make a few more million dollars? What kind of scumbag does this? She should not be in office.
Woo! That's some Dante's Inferno level stuff, but I feel what you mean. Some part of my mind tells me that you're probably right. She'll get away scot-free. Another part of my mind keeps hoping that justice actually gets served in this instance. As someone who has zero power in this matter myself, I'll keep my fingers crossed on behalf of US students.
DeVos deserves to be dipped in honey, & then tied down to a red ant bed, in a scorching hot Desert. but sadly, DeVos (like most criminals in Drumpf's Admin) will NEVER be held accountable for ANY of her Crimes as Sec of Education, or in her private life.
This is just sick. Ivanka is paying Mother's in Indonesia, China, India and the Philippines $1.00 an hour! She's preying on women. And I've said the 180 million that Trump was given by Xi has bought protection. None of his promises have been kept. He's a con art and the people that was hired are con artists too. Disgusting is right. America is imploding which is what Putin wants. His billion to Trump was well spent. Trump has taken off all sanctions that he could as soon as they are put on. How did Betsy EVER get passed to be in that job?? :( Songs
smokedout really so the fact that im blind in 1 eye i have spinal stenosis plus Epilepsy and that i can no longer work at all i shud pull the money out my Butt an pay it back ..you uncompassionate selfish person if you don't the persons history you dont judge or speak thats like me calling you a huge DICK!!!!! an i dont even kno u ...you ignorant ahole ppl have issues an why they cant an the government eliminated my student loan so you go take it up with the government because they eliminated it because of my disability SMDH!!!
I really enjoy TYT but why is Cenk on every news show? Maybe it's time to let the rest of the staff do some of the shows by themselves. Maybe Cenk should take some time off before he has a heart attack.
Lying religious fundamentalist. Is there any other type? She is running a con on the American people to turn America into a theocracy. Never trust the "faithful". What confuses me is that America spends trillions to make sure no other nation can mess with the US......then they give away the keys to the kingdom to the 1% to dismantle the country at their leisure. Why are you worried about protecting the border, when the defilers are in the White House?
Trumpzilla's Dancing Monkey Giuliani got Yanked - - Priceless watching the old coot squirm in his constant lies - he lies to cover up his lies -- And the difference too - Bill Clinton was a Democrat and did one bad deed - Trump is a RepublicGOON and has an arm's length of criminal crimes and misdemeanor "deeds" he's pulled off for decades - how did he get Vetted by his GOP Boys?!? Time to end the Trump White House of Corruption and empty his enabler GOP cesspool of traitors. Cuomo STILL let the old dog off the leash wavering beyond coherence still too many times for comfort. Back these liars and traitors to the wall ~!~
The country is being destroyed by people the say they are Americans yet they are tearing the people down instead of placeing in a position to make them better. They call themselves Americans that people narrow minded points of view are the result of what America has now. People that are not qualified to do anything position in which they hold. It starts with Whitehouse occupy, VP, 99 percent of the cabinet members. Yet the elected peiple, by the people have failed in the oath, responsibility, accountability, integrity, no leadership abilities, poor judgement, poor decision making process. The list continues in terms of qualified people holding positions of power that affect lives across the country and parts of the world. Yet people voted him in office. Poor decision making. How long will it take before the people simply say enough, stop making poor decisions based on hate and stupidity. These people do not care whether your children are educated in a building design for educating or an underground sewer. That should be the defining moment for people to simply say that is enough and start taking action to get these people removed, possibly tried and sent to prison. Accountability and responsibility.
Like ALL Trump appointees, DeVos is a criminal. Her role has always been to destroy Public Education and to privatize it. This is Trump's definition of draining the swamp - draining the RESOURCES of the US into his buds' pockets. Put the man in charge of Energy that vowed to eliminate it, and was too dumb to remember it's NAME. Put the man in charge of Housing that thinks the poor SHOULD sleep under bridges.
How long do we continue to stand for the Rape of America?
何孝倫 i remember some jerk (who had bullied me in high school) calling my parents (when I was in my 30s) to try to locate me so that he could recruit me for Amway....apparently, he remembered me as "very intelligent and interesting" (hmmm, funny...when he was being an asshole he did not admit to finding me interesting OR intelligent, but...whatever). I did call him back to refuse his kind offer (and I was polite/demure).
Later, I heard that he and his wife had defrauded a large number of people in a real-estate scam. Yup. Amway trains em well.
Szriko ...and this is the real problem with the US....if [the all important] <I> (me, me, me ME, ME !!!!!!!!) is not directly affected, "I don't care".....
Betsy DeVos is a criminal, preying on gullible students, enriching herself(even though she was born wealthier than you supporters/collaborators will ever understand) with public funds. She was given a carte-blanche to defraud y'all for as long as she can by your "saviour".....the most self-serving dictator to EVER fool the foolish. Donny, Betsy, Lucretia etal are robbing you blind. Selling MAGA hats for profit (huge profit) should have been your first clue..but, no....now, they are selling you all down the river for whatever peanuts they can snatch up. Stop blindly following these snake-oil salesmen !!
Judith Osorio ...his plan is not to destroy the country...his plan is to MILK it. He and his thieving asswipes. No one will ever be able to explain why his supporters did not/could not/would not see it. 10 years from now they will deny culpability...just like every German in postwar Germany.
Trying to make Trump supporters see Trump's corruption is IMPOSSIBLE. I asked one yesterday if he didn't believe Trump had an affair with. a porn star prostitute and he yelled in my face, literally, it doesn't matter, that was 13 years ago! "But your GOP impeached Pres. Clinton over a blowjob!"
"That's because he was president and he was lying about it. Did you know Hillary murdered Vince Foster?!?"
Their blind hypocrisy will leave you speechless. Their willingness to believe the worst obvious lies about the Clintons while dismissing or denying obvious corruption in Trump is beyond stunning.
Note that e Evangelicals, Faux News and Republicans create a perfect symbiosis - every step of the way, a false reality is constructed and then maintained by coordinated lies. Orwell would be horrified that his predictions took an additional 25 years. McLuhan predicted it. And Aiels/Murdoch built it.
Happy 1984, everyone.
Aileen McMillan I could not agree with you more. Where are the 50 million people who should be protesting this entire Trump government in the streets. 2016 election needs to be scrapped, and everything in the government returned to what it was at that date.
Pura Vida dew..... those people are there to rape the country. Trump and his entire crime family are scheming and cheating.....he gave anyone who gave him money for "his campaign" public appointments which allow them to shut down gov't branches that were stopping them from stealing at will. What's next ? A Mexican druglord as head of the DEA ? If he chooses to pay off trump, he can do as he likes. Pruitt sued the EPA many times before being given free rein...Betsy deVos smiles alot (while saying nothing) but is clearly out to make a killing (and to help HER private thieving buddies).
Marietta K. Harris ...when the imbeciles were howling, "we need a businessman to run the country !!!", I thought, "A businessman is absolutely the wrong person to elect ! An owner only cares about his OWN wellbeing....a PRESIDENT needs to care about EVERYONE'S health and welfare. When a company is in trouble, a businessman does whatever needs to be done to ensure that he will always get $$$, whether that action supports his employees or not. A PRESIDENT needs to ensure that EVERY one of his employees survives the difficult times. Trump bankrupted companies whenever he wanted to....his lawyers had already insulated him from repercussions. The only people who suffered from his inept leadership, were his employees (sorry: " you're terminated, no paycheque tomorrow for your last two weeks of work, no earned vacation pay, no accrued benefits"...), and every company that had supplied him with goods/services. You can BET that this resulted in OTHER bankruptcies/home foreclosures/distress. Donny protects himself with lawyers....anyone DEALING with this shyster was left out in the cold. Donny thinks this makes him "smart". Why do americans agree with him ? Because those believers were not personally affected by his corrupt practises ? Geez, people...this criminal crew will continue to steal from one group after another until you stop being so self-absorbed, and decide to give a shit about others BEFORE IT AFFECTS YOU, AND THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU !!
I from Michigan she from Michigan we are one of the dumb state in American one year we place 36 in test score there only 50 state in American, how are you peoples shock look who pick DeVos it was Trump dumb A$$ ? Michigan is a corrupt state look who governor and the corrupt water scandal right here in Flint over $80 million that President Obama government money he send here is miss un-account for and it been three year later and not one person have look into it in Lansing Mich ? just like the miss election ballot bag and ballot bags with no lock on them. Just because we are a college state that just mean peoples are stupid to come here.
This idiot education program and charter school program got turn down twice by Michigan education system because it was crazy and stupid and now she over American education system ? we place 36 in test score one year American is so f*ck now.
Devos bought her cabinet position. She absolutely bombed her confirmation hearing, she could not answer a single question. Yet the GOP still confirmed her. No integrity at all in this administration, what a joke.
Betsy, that bitch, would have been perfect as dean of "Trump University". Jesus Christ we are living through some seriously scary times. It's bad enough that this dumb bastard is POTUS but to watch him con half of the country makes this even more horrifying. Who in the fck knew that we lived in a country where half the population is THAT FCKING STUPID to think- 'yeah um derrr, me think Trump is the bestest president the world has ever seen'. I mean for fcks sakes c'mon. How in holy hell is intelligence not a fcking job requirement for the position of POTUS?!!!!!!
People who attend these schools are not the brightest. The federal money is what they want and if that wasn't there they would have no students. Local community colleges and universities provide the same programs at a fraction of the cost. So why do the chose the for profits because they CANNOT FAIL as long as the checks come they will get a degree.
In1953, after "serving" in Korea, There were tables in the military separation centers "recruiting" the kids into for-profit schools. I fell for the pitch because we were told that we could get educated and make a little money for attending on the GI Bill. The "schools" did not give a damn whether "students" were in class or at a bar, as long as the timecard was punched so the $$$ flowed in! Now, it seems even worse? Why do we the people allow (support) these kinds of ripoffs on government property?
Most people just want someone to think for them. Trump followers are no different. "I choose ... uh ... this dude to think for me! Whatever he does now is OK by me. As long as I don't have to think for myself."
Eric Tobias too right. Whenever I hear a Drumpf supporter attempt to speak articulately, what ALWAYS oozes out is: "He says what I think". REALLY? So all his supporters are thinking "covfefe" or wtf ever that moronic made up gibberish was?
we need to have a say so, IMO, on big decisions, like net neut, 5G, stupid Smart tech, health care, Education, for children, common core the saboteur ; If our votes matter, and those ''elected'' arent representing yet taking taxes for wetf they please, and selves...we fundamentaly need to stop enabling them esp on the most direct, life impacting issues/areas, to gain the fulfillment of our needs as citizens, by "OUR'' paid administrations/dept's: EMPLOYEES...imo
omg, trump recently sent jobs to China??? seriously..?? well at least he is now being honest about/ true to Himself.. he already openly stated his lack of truth when he made those campaign promises to drain the swamp.. this DeVos is a bottom feeding swamper, from the get go I expected this from her, based on her resume
Dont care. As long as she gets the Federal Government OUT of education so that it once again becomes the responsibility of LOCAL authority thats great with me
Care to talk about Bernies wifes little college funding fraud that he was possibly an accessory to? I will bet NOT, but what can we expect from biased LOSERS like TYT?
I still love their TOTAL meltdown on election night.
They covered the information on the alleged fraud you are bringing up. What you fail to mention or simply don’t know about is that those allegations are based on a hearsay rumor from someone who has a grudge against Sanders, and fraud requires the accused to knowingly attempt to acquire monetary gain through deception, and in Mrs. Sanders case, she, like all people who oversee the responsibilities of her previous position, had to make an estimate on the amount of new students that they were expecting to enroll, in order to receive funding. When the number of students enrolling failed to reach expectations, this information was taken out of context, and fed into a deceptive rumor based on misunderstandings/assumptive lies and passed on to media in an attempt to slander/smear Sanders to damage his reputation and potentially hurt his political chances in the future.
That man is one of the last honest politicians who actually do their job and fight to represent you. I hope you’ll come to realize that someday. Take care.
Well, I certainly don’t know about any college fraud by Mrs. Sanders. I also don’t know if Mr. Sanders helped. I certainly know that DeVos has blatant conflicts of interest and her policies will directly benefit herself and her cronies. Anything the Sanders did or didn’t do probably doesn’t hold a candle to DeVos.
How about this Idea to make For-Profit Universities to actually deliver what they promise:
-Make it so that the Income of these Colleges come,not from tuition, but from a Percentage of their Graduate's Income, either for life or a certain number of years. Call it a College Tax, that would be calculated in the same way of Income Tax. It would be waived while you are unemployed.
-This way Colleges would have a powerful incentive in ensuring the success of their Graduates. Colleges with successful models will get more money, and be able to expand and give access to more students. They will be giving Post-Graduation services that you could tap into to get ahead.
The sad truth about some of these for profit colleges is that employers don't value their degrees. Therefore they never get an interview in their respective fields. Their degrees are basically worthless.
Nick Angelos presidents have alot of power and with an executive order could easily end or at least start to end corruption in the government. Yes I agree that people need to get more involved but it's still going to be multiple elections before anything really gets done.
Where do I sign up to be an investor. I need to launder my fraud money. It's nice to see the Trump administration helping us poor investors trying to make a buck. Defrauding investors is my work ethic. Just like Trump's University. I can offer DeVos a job when she finishes with this scam.
Dear The Young Turks,
I would like to know, that if trump is convicted or removed from office, is it possible to undo all of the things that trump did, such as, pull out of the Iran nuke deal, Paris climate agreement, tax reform scam, appointees to offices such as homeland security, etc.? If he won the election by 'cheating' or by fraudulence , how is it that the things he was able to do be valid in any way? Thanks!
