Ben Carson Ending THIS Illegal Obama HUD SCAM BY AMY MORENOAUGUST 8, 2017 ShareTweetBen Carson’s Department of Housing and Urban Development is getting ready to end yet another Obama scam. Carson is planning to end Obama’s illegal “grants” and will return HUD to a competitive bidding process to award Section 8 housing. Obama used a grant-style process that was illegal and smacked down by the U.S. Supreme Court. HUD is starting the process now to roll back the Obama-era bidding process. There are many steps to change back and return HUD to a “competitive” procurement method instead of Obama’s shady bidding methods. Undoing this disastrous Obama-era policy will be tough, but if anyone can do it, it’s Ben Carson. From Washington Examiner The Department of Housing and Urban Development is poised to reverse the Obama administration’s policy and return to a competitive bidding process to award Section 8 housing, according to a well-placed source in the department. The move would overturn the Obama-era methodology of using a grant-style process that was rebuked by administrators and ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court. The HUD official said many of the steps necessary to change back to the competitive procurement method are being taken now, but didn’t want to comment on when the announcement from the department might happen for fear of tainting the bidding process. Supporters of the competitive bidding procurement process say the net result will increase efficiency in the program and save taxpayer money. And Republican lawmakers that have been critical of HUD’s actions in the past are applauding the change in course as well. “When dealing with performance-based Section 8 contract administrators, it’s clear that full and open competition is the way to get the best value for the taxpayer,” said Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla. “As Chairman of the Housing Appropriations Subcommittee, I have repeatedly insisted both publicly and privately that HUD follow Congressional intent, the GAO, and the Supreme Court.” Diaz-Balart is one of a small handful of elected officials who put pressure on HUD and then-Secretary Julián Castro during the years in which HUD ignored findings that their grant process was illegal. Section 8 housing is a federal program that pays rental assistance to landlords to help low-income people acquire affordable housing. Because HUD had problems administering the program, in 1995 it started to contract out the management of Section 8 housing units through a competitive bidding process. However, in March of 2012, HUD suddenly shifted away from the competitive bidding process, and began using funding mechanisms which were more like grants. Contractors who had previously gained HUD’s business under the bidding process appealed to the Government Accountability Office in 2012, just months after HUD changed course. And by August of that year, the GAO ruled that HUD’s actions were “unreasonable and in disregard of applicable statutory guidance.” Undeterred, HUD pressed forward with their choice, which then made them the target of a lawsuit. From that point, HUD lost an embarrassing string of rulings which culminated in the U.S. Supreme Court denying to hear an appeal from the agency in April of 2015. Despite all those rulings, HUD didn’t budge. But the Trump administration is now set to return to the previous methods. Eric Strong is the CEO of Navigate Affordable Housing Partners, a company that has won HUD Section 8 contracts in the past under the competitive system. He’s also publicly lobbied HUD to change back to the performance based contracting method. “All we’ve ever wanted was fair and open competition because we know it results in the best financial situation for the taxpayer and also will result in better housing for the residents who live in those [Section 8] units,” Strong told the Washington Examiner. ___________________________
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — Jun 24, 2017, 8:49 PM ET | Getty Images
The Koch brothers' political network plans to pick up the pace of spending in the run-up to 2018, despite major policy disagreements with the Trump administration that includes skepticism of the health care bill now being debated in the Senate.The Koch network of organizations –- funded by some 100,000 donors, with billionaires Charles and David Koch front and center -– had previously announced plans to spend between $300 million and $400 million in the 2017-18 cycle. "We think it's going to be on the high end of that range," Tim Phillips, president of the Kochs’ political wing Americans for Prosperity, told reporters Saturday as the Koch network's twice-a-year conference started. Charles Koch told donors that the network he and his brother control is growing and getting stronger. In his opening remarks to the gathering, at a posh resort in Colorado Springs, he made no mention of President Trump, who has had a tense relationship with the Kochs. "We are more optimistic now about what we can accomplish than we've ever been," Charles Koch said. "I see us taking it to the next level." In Colorado this weekend, hundreds of wealthy conservative donors have joined four governors, six senators, and five House members -– all of them Republicans -– to discuss policy and strategy under the thematic batter of "the courage to lead." As for leadership in Washington, leaders of the Koch-backed political groups are expressing optimism about progress in some areas, particularly judicial appointments and the rollback of regulations. But they are airing sharp differences with the Trump administration in other areas, including criminal justice reform, trade agreements, and drug enforcement. Mark Holden, Koch Industries' general counsel, told reporters that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is embracing a failed "big-government approach" that is "based on fear" when it comes to following tougher sentencing guidelines. Holden has led efforts to reach out to Republicans and Democrats -– including the Obama administration -– on sentencing reform, only to see Sessions move in the other direction. "Hopefully we can change people's minds," Holden said. The Koch-backed groups have stopped short of endorsing the Senate health care draft revealed this past week. They came out against the initial House proposal, but relented after changes were made to reflect conservatives' concerns. "We're still hopeful on the health care front," Phillips said, adding that the bill "needs to get better" from a conservative perspective to earn his group's support. He called it "flatly wrong" for Republicans to support continuing Medicaid expansions -– something moderate lawmakers are pushing for in the Senate. "Their position is not the compassionate way to go, because this program is failing," he said. The Koch brothers have had a tense relationship with Trump, dating back to a primary campaign where the president attacked his GOP rivals for their ties to the billionaires. Charles Koch told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl last April that "it's possible" Hillary Clinton would make a better president than Trump for small-government priorities; the Kochs wound up attacking Clinton in local races while staying away from outright support for Trump. As part of an effort to patch up relations, Vice President Mike Pence met privately Friday night with Charles Koch. Pence was in Colorado for unrelated political events and did not attend the donor gathering. ____________________________

Definition of a Tea bagger .. To tea bag is a slang term for the sexual act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth of a willing sexual partner for pleasure or onto the face or head of another person. The name of the practice, when it is done in a repeated in-and-out motion, is derived from its passing resemblance to the dipping of a tea bag into a cup of hot water as a method of brewingtea. As a form of non-penetrative sex, it can be done for its own enjoyment or as foreplay. _________________________
(Natural News) At Rocklin Academy Gateway, a first grade student was sent to the principal’s office for committing the heinous crime of accidentally “misgendering” a classmate. The so-called “pronoun mishap” occurred during the first week of school at the playground. There, the little girl — whose identity has not been revealed — came across one of her school mates and called the boy by his given name. She did this despite the boy now identifying as a girl, and being told that she needed to refer to her schoolmate by his new name, reported LifeSiteNews.com. The little girl was called into the principal’s office to determine if she had intentionally called her trans schoolmate by his original name as an insult. An hour after the investigation began, the little girl’s “deadnaming” — the trans community’s term for calling someone by their birth name — was found to be an honest mistake, so she was neither reprimanded nor punished. According to Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute, however, the little girl was severely traumatized by the whole event. “The daughter came home from school upset and crying – saying, ‘Mommy, I got in trouble at school today,’” England told FoxNews.com. She added that the little girl’s mother contacted the school over the incident and was told that there was a “pronoun mishap” and that “the school must investigate.” In a letter written by the girl’s mother to Capitol Resource Institute, she stated: “I stressed over and over with the principal that I am all for protecting the rights of [the transgender child], but my children have rights as well. It makes me sad that my daughter felt like she was punished for trying to be kind to the kid.” Currently, the incident is being looked into by religious liberty law firm Alliance Defending Freedom. “Our focus is on ensuring that every student’s privacy is protected and that parental rights, including the right to be notified that before children are exposed to gender identity teaching, are respected by the school officials,” said a spokesman for the organization. Though shocking, Rocklin Academy Gateway is no stranger to transgender-related controversy. In June of this year, a five-year-old boy from a kindergarten class transitioned into a girl, causing some of his classmates to fear that they would be changing into the opposite sex too. The students’ parents were not informed of this change either. (Related: Transgender summer camp now enrolling toddlers as young as four years old.) Moreover, the kindergarten teacher was said to have read two pro-trangender books to the class shortly before the summer break began. Allegedly, the five-year-old boy changed from his clothes to that of a girl’s between the readings. The school board plans on addressing the issue during the board meeting next month.

Early Wednesday morning the U.S. Air Force launched an ICBM test from a base in California.
BREAKING: ICBM Fired From California As Trump Prepares Official Response To “Handle Them” Posted by Asia Mayfield | Aug 2, 2017 | Breaking News Days after North Korea conducted a successful missile test, the U.S. Air Force launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile from California. The Minuteman III was fired Wednesday at 2:10 a.m. from a base north of Santa Barbara. “This operational test launch highlights the commitment and outstanding professionalism of the 90th Missile Wing, the 576th Flight Test Squadron and our mission partners in the 30th Space Wing,” Col. Dave Kelley, 576th Flight Test Squadron commander, said in a statement. “These test launches required the highest-degree of technical competence and commitment at every level and provide critical data necessary to validate the reliability, accuracy and performance of the ICBM force.”
North Korea’s increasing aggression has worried Washington. Experts believe that war may be inevitable. The Air Force admitted that Wednesday’s ICBM test was intended to test the country’s readiness to defend itself. U.S. officials say that the latest missile test was an attempt to check the country’s defenses. “These test launches verify the accuracy and reliability of the ICBM weapon system, providing valuable data to ensure a continued safe, secure and effective nuclear deterrent,” reads an official statement. Pyongyang insists that it has the capability of sending a missile to continental America. It would be a disaster if that happens. Democrats are frothing at the mouth over the made-up Russia scandal when they should instead be focusing their attention on North Korea.
“These test launches require the highest-degree of technical competence and commitment at every level,” said Col. Michael Hough, the 30th Space Wing commander and launch decision authority. According to Washington officials, President Trump is preparing for war. It’s not the desired outcome, but there may be no other choice. Kim Jong Un has so far not shown himself to be amenable to change. He continues to hawk the same anti-America message as his predecessor. “If there’s going to be a war to stop [Kim Jong Un], it will be over there. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there. They’re not going to die here. And He has told me that to my face,” Senator Lindsay Graham told NBC News. “And that may be provocative, but not really. When you’re president of the United States, where does your allegiance lie? To the people of the United States.” North Korea’s military aggression is becoming increasingly worrisome.
If we’re going to be forced into war, it’s obviously better to be prepared. Air Force officials wouldn’t admit that Wednesday’s launch was in response to North Korea’s actions but instead attributed the cause to general security concerns. “There is a military option to destroy North Korea’s program and North Korea itself… I’m saying it’s inevitable unless North Korea changes because you’re making our president pick between regional stability and homeland security,” Graham said. “He’s having to make a choice that no president wants to make. They kicked the can down the road for 20 years, there’s no place else to kick it.” Trump has threatened to enact severe consequences if North Korea continues with its nuclear program. So far Jong Un has shown no signs of relenting, but that may be because of his administration’s love of fiery rhetoric. It’s possible that Jong Un could decide to pacify the West while still screaming hell and damnation to his own people. “We’re not your enemy,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said this week in a statement directed to Jong Un. “We do not seek a regime change, we do not seek the collapse of the regime, we do not seek an accelerated reunification of the peninsula, we do not seek an excuse to send our military north of the 38th parallel.” The launch occurred at 2:10 a.m. on a serene California morning.
If war happens, it will be decided by North Korea rather than Trump. Trump will defend our country, but he won’t authorize meaningless aggression. If we attack Pyongyang it’s because military advisers feel that there’s no other option. “Considering that the regional security is becoming much more severe, it is important to secure the deterrence of the U.S.,” the Japanese government’s top spokesman, Yoshihide Suga, told reporters Wednesday. “We highly commend Trump Administration’s posture of using both words and action to show that all choices are on the table… It is very important to further strengthen the deterrence fostered by the Japan-U.S. alliance and we will continue to press forward with the cooperation of the two nations including this area of national security.” Trump will continue to work with our allies to neutralize the situation. If that fails, war might be the result. __________________________
Che Guevara: Remembering the ‘Butcher of La Cabana’ August 6, 2017 by Dr. Rich Swier There are two things one sees on tee shirts that glorify evil incarnate. The first is the anti-Christian, anti-Semitic and anti-American peace sign, which has been put on jewelry, tee shirts and even on children’s clothing (listen to my interview with Paul Ibbetson, host of the Conscience of Kansas radio show on the peace sign below). The second is the image of Che Guevara the “butcher of La Cabana” on tee shirts sold on Amazon.com,eBay and at TheCheStore.com. Che Guevara died on October 9, 1967, in La Higuera, Bolivia. Humberto Fontova in his book “Exposing the Real Che Guevara: And the Useful Idiots who Idolize Him” wrote on page 82: Twenty-four-year-old Teresita Saavedra was a lay Catholic leader when the Che-trained militia arrested her in the town of Sancti-Spiritus in Central Cuba. The Bay of Pigs invasion had just been crushed and a huge dragnet was sweeping Cuba for any who had sympathized with those abandoned freedom fighters. Teresita, who certainly qualified, was hauled away at Czech machine-gun point to the town’s police headquarters. In the interrogation room she was repeatedly raped by five milicianos, who then released her. Teresita committed suicide that night. The quote reads: “The life of a human being is worth more than all the gold of the rich men of the world” – Che I recently visited Communist Cuba and noticed images of Che are everywhere. On posters, painted on walls and even in Cuban hospitals and health clinics. Che has become the primary symbol of the revolution, eclipsing even Fidel Castro and his brother Raul. As Che said, “The clay of our work is the youth.” Fidel and Che understood the value of propaganda. Fidel’s February 1957 interview with New York Times correspondent Herbert L. Matthews is one example of Fidel using the media to his advantage, portraying his and Che’s “revolution” as a benevolent one. This lie was exposed on January 1, 1959 when Fidel and Che toppled Batista and established what is now a Communist dictatorship. After this “revolutionary victory” who was Che Guevara what was his role? Michael J. Totten in his February 2014 World Affairs Journal column “The Truth About Che Guevara” wrote: He [Che] helped free Cubans from the repressive Batista regime, only to enslave them in a totalitarian police state worst than the last. He was Fidel Castro’s chief executioner, a mass-murderer who in theory could have commanded any number of Latin American death squads, from Peru’s Shining Path on the political left to Guatemala’s White Hand on the right. [ … ] As Guevara wrote to a friend in 1957, ‘My ideological training means that I am one of those people who believe that the solution to the world’s problems is to be found behind the Iron Curtain.’…He was a great admirer of the Cultural Revolution [in China]. According to Regis Debray, ‘It was he and not Fidel who in 1960 invented Cuba’s first corrective work camp,’ or what the Americans would call a slave labor camp and the Russians called the gulag.” Read more. Before the revolution Cuba was 80% Catholic. Che, like Karl Marx, believed that “religion is the opiate of the masses.” Matthew Archbold in his National Catholic Register article “5 Reasons Christians Should Never Ever Celebrate Che Guevara” wrote: 5) Che savagely killed Christians for little or no reason. And it’s not just me saying it. In 2005, Cuban Jazz musician Paquito D’Rivera wrote a moving letter to the guitarist Santana, who wore a shirt with a crucifix and an image of Che’s face to the premiere of the movie The Motorcycle Diaries, which lionized Che. Hola, Santana: I found out, through our friend Raul Artiles, that you’ll be performing in Miami soon; I find this rather ill-advised, since not too long ago you committed the faux-pas of appearing at the “Oscar Awards” ceremony, brandishing, with pride, an enormous crucifix over a tee-shirt with that archaic and stereotyped image of “The Butcher of the Cabaña,” the moniker given to the lamentable character known as Ché Guevara by those Cubans who had to suffer his tortures and humiliations in that nefarious prison. One of these Cubans was my cousin Bebo, imprisoned there just for being a Christian. He recounts to me on occasion, always with infinite bitterness, how he could hear, from his cell, in the early hours of dawn, the executions without prior trials or process of law, of the many who died shouting, “Long Live Christ The King!” The guerrilla guy with the beret with the star is something more than that ridiculous film about a motorcycle, my illustrious colleague, and to juxtapose Christ with Ché Guevara is like entering a synagogue with a swastika hanging from your neck… Wow. Pretty awful. But hey, so maybe Che had a little bitty problem with Christians. But it’s not like he totally hated Christ, right? 4) Che hated Christ. Che actually said, “In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.” Read more. Committees for the Defense of the Revolution banner in Havana. But propaganda didn’t end with the January 1, 1959 Cuban Revolution. Today, the Cuban government controls all aspects of the media, magazines, newspapers, broadcasting facilities and the internet. Billboards and graffiti with pro-Che sentiment litter the landscape, and strict law enforcement and community groups like the “Committees for the Defense of the Revolution” are used to minimize the expression of conflicting views. As Totten noted: You know what happens to Cubans who display open hatred of Che? They get arrested. When he was still alive, they were executed or herded into slave-labor camps. So yeah, everyone “loves” him. It’s required by law. Woe to those who disobey State Security. Totten provides these quotes from Humberto Fontova’s Exposing the Real Che Guevara: “A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.” “We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home, to his places of work and recreation. We must never give him a minute of peace or tranquility. This is a total war to the death.” “If the nuclear missiles had remained, we would have used them against the very heart of America, including New York City…We will march the path of victory even if it costs millions of atomic victims…We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm.” Here’s one more from Fontaine in France: “In his will, the graduate of the school of terror praised the ‘extremely useful hatred that turns men into effective, violent, merciless, and cold killing machines.’ He was dogmatic, cold, and intolerant, and there was almost nothing in him of the traditionally open and warm Cuban temperament.” Next time you see someone wearing a Che tee shirt, stop and ask them do they really know what they are doing?

Che Guevara on Jesus Christ: From Discovery Channel Documentary about Che Guevara.
EDITORS NOTE: It was Colonel John Waghelstein U.S. Army (Ret.) who served as an adviser to the Bolivian airborne unit that chased down the last of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara’s rebel band in 1967. The author served with Colonel Waghelstein, then Major Waghelstein, when he Commanded the 2 Battalion 7th Special Forces Group, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Largely unbeknownst to the general public, many media executives and top journalists of almost all major U.S. news outlets, political and business magazines, public broadcasters and press agencies have long been members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Established in 1921 as a private, bipartisan organization to “awaken America to its worldwide responsibilities”, the CFR and its close to 5000 elite members have for decades shaped U.S. foreign policy and public discourse about it. As one Council member famously explained, the goal has indeed been to establish an “empire”, albeit a “benevolent” one. Based on official membership rosters, the following illustration for the first time depicts the extensive media network of the CFR and its two main international affiliate organizations: the Bilderberg Group(covering the U.S. and Europe) and the Trilateral Commission (covering North America, Europe and East Asia), both established by Council leaders to foster elite cooperation at the international level.
In a column titled “Ruling Class Journalists”, former Washington Post senior editor and ombudsman Richard Harwood once described the Council and its members approvingly as “the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment in the United States”. Harwood continued: “The membership of these journalists in the Council, however they may think of themselves, is an acknowledgment of their active and important role in public affairs and of their ascension into the American ruling class. They do not merely analyze and interpret foreign policy for the United States; they help make it.… They are part of that establishment whether they like it or not, sharing most of its values and world views.” However, media personalities constitute only a small part of the comprehensive CFR network. As the following illustration shows, key members of the Council on Foreign Relations have included:
several U.S. Presidents and Vice Presidents of both parties;
almost all Secretaries of State, Defense, and the Treasury;
many high-ranking commanders of the U.S. military and NATO;
almost all National Security Advisors, CIA Directors, Ambassadors to the U.N., Chairs of the Federal Reserve, Presidents of the World Bank, and Directors of the National Economic Council;
some of the most influential Members of Congress (notably in foreign & security policy matters);
many top jounalists, media executives, and entertainment industry directors;
many prominent academics, especially in key fields such as Economics, International Relations, Political Science, History and Journalism;
many top executives of Wall Street, policy think tanks, universities, and NGOs;
as well as the key members of both the 9/11 Commission and the Warren Commission (JFK)
Eminent economist and Kennedy supporter, John K. Galbraith, confirmed the Council’s influence: “Those of us who had worked for the Kennedy election were tolerated in the government for that reason and had a say, but foreign policy was still with the Council on Foreign Relations people.” German news magazine Der Spiegel once described the CFR as the “most influential private institution of the United States and the Western world“ and a “politburo of capitalism”. Both the Roman-inspired logo of the Council (top right in the illustration above) as well as its slogan (ubique – omnipresent) appear to emphasize that ambition. In his famous article about “The American Establishment”, political columnist Richard H. Rovere noted: “The directors of the CFR make up a sort of Presidium for that part of the Establishment that guides our destiny as a nation.… [I]t rarely fails to get one of its members, or at least one of its allies, into the White House. In fact, it generally is able to see to it that both nominees are men acceptable to it.” Until recently, this assessment had indeed been justified. Thus, in 1993 former CFR director George H.W. Bush was followed by CFR member Bill Clinton, who in turn was followed by CFR “family member” George W. Bush. In 2008, CFR member John McCain lost against CFR candidate of choice, Barack Obama, who receivedthe names of his entire Cabinet already one month prior to his election by CFR Senior Fellow (and Citigroup banker) Michael Froman. Froman later negotiated the TTP and TTIP free trade agreements, before returning to the CFR as a Distinguished Fellow. It was not until the 2016 election that the Council couldn’t, apparently, prevail. At any rate, not yet. References
