Major Fraud and Corruption Unfold As Trump Deals With “Obamaphone” Program!
L.G February 16, 2017
It appears that all these scandals relating to Trump’s executive order on ban and the resignation and controversy that unfolded around Michael Flynn has not slowed down the president to concentrate on other matters that require his attention.
Donald Trump is doing an excellent work taking care of the useless spending Obama did. By doing so, Trump has uncovered major fraud and corruption.
The Federal Communications Commission has been been authorized to cut waste from programs that include the “Obamaphone” program, which is supposed to enable low-income families a phone for an emergency use but, naturally, is being manipulated with revealing millions of dollars being abused, reported Breitbart.
The director of the FCC, Ajit Pai, has placed the whole program, Lifeline, under review. He prevented the nine phone carriers that the program included, saying it needed to be closely examined.
Pai and some other members of Congress are convinced that the program is in urgent need of changes, and the budget needs to be cut shorter to $1.5 billion to ensure that U.S. citizens are not abusing the system and are careful how they spend their budget. This program was supposed to ensure that those who live in destitution got access to phones. Phones are a necessity for anyone seeking a job and contacting people for emergency help, so it’s an excellent measure to help them get back on their feet, but under Obama people, the program lost control and was totally abused.
Such people need a phone, not the newest iPhone or the latest Samsung Galaxy. These phones are a luxury and it’s not the government’s job to pay for them. It goes the same for your 3-hour discussion with your psychic. The phone is used to arrange interviews and contact people when having an emergency, but not to abuse taxpayers.
Of course, this system would be abused under Obama — many systems were! Obamacare was vastly abused by the poor and sick while the rest of America had to dish out tons of money to keep it going. The Dream Act was also vastly abused like this, with illegals claiming they’ve been here since a young age, which may not even be true.
It is not even surprising that this system would be abused under Obama’s “watchful eye.” Obama care(or Affordable care act) was also mercilessly abused by the poor and sick while the rest of the U.S. citizens had to cash in their hard-earned dollars. Furthermore, the Dream Act was also abused in a similar way, with undocumented immigrants claiming they’ve lived here from a young age which, of course, is not to be believed.
Kudos to Trump who, in this pretty busy and tumultuous time of his early presidency, still stands strong and improving life in this country is one of his top priorities for now.
Tillerson Saddles Up For Critical Diplomatic Mission To Disarm Ticking Time Bomb In Asia
Posted by Sam Di Gangi | Mar 13, 2017 | American Strength
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is set to meet with one of the nations that threatens world peace on an almost daily basis.
After the parades and fanfare from winning the Presidential election, Trump had to actually show America that he was going to move the nation in his promised direction. Not all things have rolled out as the president had hoped. Some posts have not yet been met at places like the State Department, but all things considered, most promises have been kept. Those that have not are in process of being kept.
One of those promises involved “a military so great and so powerful that we’ll never have to use it.” Some who were not onboard the Trump train worried that the president was a one-way ticket into World War III. This was based on people not listening to what Trump said more than anything else. Unfortunately some nations, like North Korea, have pushed this as much as possible.
North Korea has been a thorn in the side of Trump since he talked about reigning in their world-threatening showboating. Now Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is doing something about it. On Tuesday, he is to have a “diplomatic meeting that involves a mounting and increasingly fractured relationship between China, South Korea, North Korea, and the US,” according to Blasting News.
Kim Jung Un (pictured) likes to portray himself as a strong leader, like Putin. Unlike Russia however, his nation is starving to death and has concentration camp-like prisons.
Contrary to what the Democrats and other flag burners have said about Trump, it would be impossible for the President to try any harder to avoid what seems like an inevitable war with someone. Trump has relied largely on only warnings to Iran, Russia, China, and, North Korea. Even when North Korea’s off keel leader, Kim Jung Un, was causing his trouble again, Trump replied by placing defensive (rather than offensive) THADD weapons at ally South Korea’s disposal. While this angered China because THADD can use radar power to see certain Chinese movements, it’s what happens when you threaten other world powers.
While Tillerson is someone who shies away greatly from the media, he has been hard at work behind the scenes. Having just gotten rid of a whole FLOOR of waste (permanently) at the State Department, his more streamlined and efficient department is ready to tackle the woes of Kim Jung Un. There is a bit more hope than is seen upon first glance in that North Korea, when not threatening to kill us, has been showing signs that they want to emerge from their shell and meet with the U.S. Sadly, it seems that they want capitulation from the world in order for “the pleasure” of dealing with them, something that few in the U.S. would be interested in.
Memes (pictured) of Kim Jung Un have for years mocked North Korea, just as they did his father. However, in recent years, North Korea have become a threat to world peace and the joke is over.
This is where Tillerson needs to prove himself to be one of the brilliant deal makers that Trump pledged we would have. The stakes are as high as can be, with China and Russia somewhat sympathetic to North Korea, despite their NAZI-like reputation for horrific human rights abuses. Due to Tillerson not being someone who makes a lot of waves, some have wondered if this means that he is avoiding his duties. This again, more than anything else, is the media chasing an already subtle person away due to a history of abuse towards all things Trump, and then wondering why.
So far, he has shown that he does not interfere very often in the affairs of other nations. According to reports, he “has limited his contact with American diplomats abroad” and that “diplomats and overseas officials receive no advice from him.” This kind of non-interventionism is what millions of Americans have longed to see for many, many decades. It is NOT the role of the U.S. to have our nose in every affair, trying to sniff out some way that we can get a foothold into every conflict. When needed or asked, America is that friend to the world, but our days of engaging in every firing opportunity on the planet are over during these Trump years.
Ideas of causing destruction to America (pictured) are common and appear on North Korean TV daily.
When Trump cut the budget for the State Department by 40 percent (which, when a whole FLOOR is dismissed isn’t that outrageous), many thought that Tillerson had not been informed. However, his clear lack of concern for the matter has shown that he was either told of the plan in private, or he was hired knowing of Trump’s plan to keep costs low and effectiveness high.
The White House has had meetings with various world leaders that saw Tillerson absent, a move designed to put Trump in the role of speaking with leaders more than his “hired help,” so to speak. Still, he also did not craft nor release the State Department annual report on human rights, something that may or may not be tied to his coming meeting with North Korea. Since they have such a terrible record in that regard, publishing it may have disturbed the waters before the meeting with the U.S. even more, since such a report was going to paint North Korea in their true dreadful light if done.
Lies such as no one lives in America except the military are commonly told to those in North Korea from the time of birth. The citizens there know of no other truth.
Even when Donald Trump denied Tillerson’s pick for deputy SCOTUS, Tillerson was mum, though discussions surely took place behind closed doors. The Blasting article does say that he “arranged the first journey of a Saudi foreign official to Iraq in 25 years,” and that he plans on tackling the now perpetual Putin problem, as well. “He’s already developing plans to begin ratcheting back Putin’s nefarious behavior,” says Senator Bob Corker of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “When he’s ready to talk, you will be very highly impressed.”
With all of these facts at hand, if the world must be on the cusp of war, it is at least at a time when the President put a Secretary of State into place who will not make dealings with an enemy like North Korea. This couldn’t be said about Obama and Clinton, as they did just that with our then enemy, Libya. At least this time we have seen that Trump has tried every option on the table, saving war as a last resort option only. From here on out, the future of North Korea rests firmly in the hands of Kim Jung Un.

Jeff Sessions Asks All Remaining Obama-Appointed U.S. Attorneys To Resign
by Tyler Durden
Mar 10, 2017 3:32 PM
In a move that will likely provoke further media, and pundit, fury despite it being a routine act that is concurrent with every change in administration, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked all remaining Obama-appointed U.S. Attorneys for their resignation.
Sarah Isgur Flores, Director of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice, released the following statement:
"As was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States Attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of Justice. The Attorney General has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed U.S. Attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition. Until the new U.S. Attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated career prosecutors in our U.S. Attorney's Offices will continue the great work of the Department in investigating, prosecuting, and deterring the most violent offenders."
Trump had previously asked the Obama-appointed U.S. attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara, to stay on. In addition, the Obama-appointed U.S. attorney in Alexandria, Virginia, Dana Boente, is currently serving as acting deputy attorney general, and Trump has nominated the Obama-appointed U.S. Attorney for Maryland, Rod Rosenstein, for the deputy attorney general, Politico adds.
However, as NBC adds, Preet Bharara is one of the Attorneys asked to resigns, suggesting that something may have changed in the amicable realtionship between Trump and Bharara in the past few months.
The issue of removing U.S. attorneys at the change of administration has been a contentious one in past years. According to Politico, in 2007, President George W. Bush’s administration sought to defend his firing of eight U.S. attorneys by asserting that President Bill Clinton had fired all sitting U.S. attorneys in 1993 “in one fell swoop,” as a top aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales put it. However, that was not true. In both the Clinton and Bush administrations, the vast majority of U.S. attorneys were replaced in the first year, the Los Angeles Times reported in 2007. The Clinton team asked for resignation letters in March, but also allowed many prosecutors to stay until their successors were confirmed. Trump has not yet formally nominated anyone to a U.S. attorney post.
Today's decision, long-overdue accoring to many, comes less than two months after then President-elect Trump said on January 18 he would allow U.S. attorneys appointed by President Barack Obama to remain in their roles for the time being. Before the announcement, officials in several U.S. attorneys’ offices told The Huffington Post they had received no guidance from the incoming administration on whether they were expected to resign when Trump became president.
“Currently serving U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals were informed today that they are able to stay in place after January 20th while the process for identifying and confirming successors is further determined,” Wyn Hornbuckle, a DOJ spokesman, said in a statement. The Executive Office for United States Attorneys informed the officials of the decision, he said.
As a reminder, it is standard practice for a new president to appoint his own U.S. attorneys, who are political appointees.
In retrospect, this decision should perhaps have been taken earlier, especially in the context of the constant pushback Trump's immigration EO - both original and revised - has received by various Obama-appointed Attorneys in the past month.
The bottom line, however, is that what Sessions has done, is considered standard operating procedure, and if anything Trump was late making the announcement. Sessions’ request for the U.S. attorneys’ resignations comes as he prepares to implement a series of significant policy shifts at the department, pushing for tougher prosecution of gun and drug offenses and parting company with the Obama administration’s embrace of more lenient sentences for some drug convicts.
