Ethics Committees Clear One and Reopen Two Investigations

With all the allegations flying about harassment, both the House Ethics Committee sent a letter and the Senate Ethics committee sent a letter to the Office of Compliance requesting all records of harassment that they have on file or any other complaints that they might have so that the committee can clear up all allegations as soon as possible. So why did it take this long for the Ethics Committees to  start looking into things they should already have been on top of? Why didn’t the Office of Compliance make them aware of any issues? Simple — it hadn’t been … Continue reading

Report Card on DHS – Fails Leadership Test After 16 Years As An Agency

Major Management and Performance Challenges Facing the DHS OIG – DHS Annual Report 11/03/17 (excerpts) Underlying causes of DHS persistent management and performance, which hamper efforts to accomplish the homeland security mission efficiently and effectively. The challenges are two-fold. First, Department leadership must commit itself to ensuring DHS operates more as a single entity rather than a collection of components. The lack of progress in reinforcing a unity of effort translates to a missed opportunity for greater effectiveness. Second, Department leadership must establish and enforce a strong internal control environment typical of a more mature organization. The current environment of relatively … Continue reading

Chalk Up ANOTHER Failure

for Barky Obama and his circus of idiots, clowns, and criminals. EXCERPT:  “The 2009 Cash for Clunkers program aimed to stimulate consumer spending in the new automobile industry, which was experiencing disproportionate reductions in demand and employment during the Great Recession. Exploiting program eligibility criteria in a regression discontinuity design, we show nearly 60 percent of the subsidies went to households who would have purchased during the two-month program anyway; the rest accelerated sales by no more than eight months. Moreover, the program’s fuel efficiency restrictions shifted purchases toward vehicles that cost on average $5,000 less. On net, Cash for … Continue reading

World Health Organization Targets Who?

  Recent articles highlighting World Health Organization’s manic fixation on the tobacco industry got my attention. I fully acknowledge that tobacco products are a health hazard…my doctor says so every time I visit as have countless ads and pamphlets. My anger isn’t over that. However, where has the WHO got the right to spend millions and billions of taxpayer dollars bringing down this industry when there are so many much more worthy health issues to focus on? Is there pictures and studies which show how tobacco has created deformed babies? How about information on the extreme effects of tobacco similar … Continue reading

Hard Rock Mining Rule by EPA on Hold For Now

  February 24, 2017 Scott Pruitt issued a press release that extended the hard rocking mining comment period on a December 2016 rule EPA proposed. They used the Superfund Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. §9601 et seq. (1980)) as their authority to issue the new rule. The act provides a Federal “Superfund” to clean up uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous-waste sites as well as accidents, spills, and other emergency releases of pollutants and contaminants into the environment. Through CERCLA, EPA was given power to seek out those parties responsible for any release and assure their cooperation in … Continue reading

The Democrats Are Totally Wasting Taxpayer Dollars so nothing new on that front, like starving junkyard dogs wrangling over the only mouthful of meat, these idiots are bound and determined to provoke and destroy a duly elected president for political reasons far beyond the rise of one man…They simply can not accept the socialist goal of one world order under a world socialist regime did not come to pass.

Government Idiocy in HUD Exposed By IG Audits

Recently I read an article in an off mainstream site about the shock Dr. Carson probably received once he became HUD Secretary. The article was ” Audit on HUD reveals billions in bookkeeping errors” by Tracey Matheson on March 7. 2017. The lead paragraph said: “Despite officials from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) correcting $520 billion in bookkeeping errors, the department’s financial records have been so poorly kept that HUD’s inspector general (IG) cannot complete an audit of them.” As Julián Castro left the secretary position after having held the post since 2014, he told Dr. Carson, … Continue reading

Flint, Michigan Tip of Looming Infrastructure Crisis

Americans have over the years come to believe they have the best infrastructure of most countries in the world. We have generously provided aid to many countries and yet ignored our own aging infrastructure. A few incidents over the years have barely scratched the surface of public awareness or alarm — until Flint, Michigan. After the shocking revelations of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan spanning almost ten years in jarring reports and stifled truth, several officials and to a lesser degree EPA have been reprimanded or in a few cases lost their jobs because of miscalculations, bad judgement, ignoring … Continue reading

Elected Congressional Members – Ultimate Self-employed Worker

Are Elected Congressional Members the Ultimate Self-employed Worker? When those in congress want to make themselves look relevant or important, they puff up and bounce in front of cameras as if their very words shape the nation.  Well sometimes information matters–Especially, when we are not seeing proof of actions which are consistent with our national interests and security; or, they set themselves up to be ranting two-year olds on a tangent. So What Is Acceptable In The Eyes Of Citizens For Elected Congress Members? Regular company hours?  Clocking in or out?  Punishment for not voting or working to run our country better with … Continue reading

The Department of Nice The other day, I was at the Department of Nice. It is in the Imperial Capital area and while it is not a very pleasant commute, once you are there, it is very nice. It’s still technically winter here, but the weather was very mild, in the 60’s with a gentle breeze. Many of the nice people, who work in the Department of Nice, took advantage of the nice … Continue reading

Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily — an Obama appointee … Continue reading

Trump and Congress Quietly Fulfilling Promises

  Congress was working quietly behind scenes as the drama of the Liberals unfolded in order to begin curbing the federal control of agencies who during Obama’s reign managed to seize control over the rights of states and local governments to govern themselves. For several years it became apparent that agencies like BLM, EPA, and Education had been allowed to write “rules” with Obama’s encouragement. These so-called rules were in fact usurping the right of congress to perform its constitutionally mandated function and allowing the agencies to “make laws” themselves. Rules in the several agencies were made without review, oversight, … Continue reading

It Is Time For McLame And Grahamnesty

to be arrested and tossed into Leavenworth as the treasonous verminous scumbags they are. As you read the entire article, judge for yourself the veracity of it but then again, why would the writer of the article lie since we all KNOW that Juan McLame and his butt plug Linda Grahamnesty are warmongers? EXCERPT:  “Unbelievably, Graham sought to directly instigate a new attack, speaking these words: “Your fight is our fight, 2017 will be the year of offense. All of us will go back to Washington and we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for … Continue reading
