Meals on Wheels Program Will Not
Be Eliminated by Federal Budget

Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Kugle

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/20/2017 2:33:45 PM

Various media outlets have published articles claiming that the Trump administration´s federal budget will eliminate funding for the Meals on Wheels program, whose volunteer drivers deliver hot meals to senior Americans across the country. But the federal budget is cutting funds to a federal grant program that provides just three percent of the Meals on Wheels revenue budget, and the program will still receive significant federal funding. Articles like the Hill´s "Trump proposed budget eliminates funds for Meals on Wheels," or the Huffington Post´s, "#LetThemDie: ‘Heartless’ Donald Trump Blasted For Slashing Meals On Wheels Funds," have been shared thousands of

I knew this last week, (link below) but that didn´t change even FNC from making outrageous, erroneous comments about this. Chris Wallace and Eric Shawn but were guilty of that. Shawn has been very good on reporting on voter fraud. He should know better than that. Those of us here are very well informed, but the huge number of people who are not is terrifying. The lies and fraud in the media is terribly disturbing. I don´t know how we survive as a nation when practically all you get is propaganda.

You also realize that this will be the first actual budget by appropriations in nearly 10 years.

And, any consideration of a reduction in spending increase from what Democrats "want" will be considered a cut.

So, if they want 8% increase and only get 6% increase it´s a catastrophe, in the minds of democrats.

Republicans need to call them on this "fake cuts" and make them provide proof.

For some reason the sheer amount of lies and propaganda today is depressing me. That rat Comey comes out and says there is zero evidence that the Russians had anything to do with the election but all the headlines choose to feature, is no wiretapping. Then so much hate on all the left wing websites comment sections. It is like a huge lies and hate fest and it is getting to me.

Huffpo seems WILLFULLY full of S, shamelessly ´Progressive´, and strategically anti-Catholic. I´ve quit two home pages the last few years for being excessively-hospitable to Huffpo´s offensive tripe. #LetThemLie

I used to rent a room from an elderly person who received the meals on wheels every day. His refrigerator was filled with them. I asked why they didn´t get eaten, and he said because they are disgusting, tasteless and nasty. Most of the time he fed the small portion of meat to his dog, kept the tiny carton of milk for his coffee, and the rest ended up in the trash after turning into a mold experiment. A total waste of money due to inedible food.

In central Indiana, Meals on Wheels requires a doctor´s prescription to even start the process.

Then there´s a $5 application fee, and an initial $60 payment to cover the first 2 weeks of deliveries. With $30 per week after that.

What´s the need for government subsidy after private charitable donations and user fees are taken into account??

I think that for $30 a week, I could feed myself pretty well. What is the purpose of Meals on Wheels anyway? Is it for the indigent? Or for those who cannot get to the grocery store? Or those unab le to cook for themselves?

Malkin: The ´Social Justice Approach´
to Fighting Terrorism Has Failed
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

Following the horrific terror attack in Manchester U.K., Michelle Malkin is praising President Trump for responding to radical Islamic terror with "moral clarity." (Snip) She said the problem in the U.K., the U.S. and much of the Western world is that we have leaders who have been "blind, deaf and dumb" to the threat of jihadists. "When you have these refugees who are welcomed into your country and you fail at the basic goal and the basic requirement of assimilation in the country, this is what you end up with," Malkin said. She quoted the famous historian Arnold J. Toynbee: "Civilizations die

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said this morning that key surveillance programs won´t be reauthorized by Congress until questions about intelligence "unmasking" are answered. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing yesterday in the Russia investigation, Gowdy asked former CIA Director John Brennan about the issue. Gowdy told Bill Hemmer this morning that he and other lawmakers still want more information on the procedures for unmasking the identities of Americans picked up in foreign surveillance by U.S. intelligence agencies. Fox News reported in April that former national security adviser Susan Rice requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials caught up in incidental surveillance.

A friend of former FBI Director James Comey said President Trump should be scared of the former director´s testimony that he plans to deliver to lawmakers next month. "This guy has a story to tell," Benjamin Wittes said of Comey in an interview on CNN on Tuesday night. "If I were Donald Trump, that would scare me a lot." Wittes, a friend to Comey and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said Tuesday he found it "very telling" that the former FBI director decided not to testify before a Senate panel on the FBI´s investigation into Russian meddling in

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite. The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation. The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run

A transcript of President Trump’s phone call with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte in which Trump praised Duterte was leaked to the media. The transcript was made by the Philippine government and was later leaked on Tuesday to two liberal news outlets, The Washington Post and The Intercept. The latter outlet obtained the transcript through a partner organization in the Philippines. Both outlets posted the full transcript online, without any redactions. A senior administration official confirmed the document’s authenticity to the Post but declined to otherwise comment on “a leaked document from a foreign government.” The transcript shows Trump making an effort to reach




Republican Senator Floats
Back-Door Amnesty Proposal
PoliZette, by Brendan Kirby    Original Article

A bill introduced this month by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) would increase foreign guest workers by up to 500,000 a year and offer a back-door amnesty for illegal immigrants. The legislation, the State Sponsored Visa Pilot Program Act of 2017, has attracted support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the libertarian-oriented Cato Institute. The bill would represent a massive increase in the number of non-immigrant visas issued each year by the United States. Unlike the myriad of existing visa programs, Johnson’s proposed program would be a state-based system. Each state and the District of Columbia would be able to

The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community. (Snip) The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later. The normally supportive court censured administration officials, saying

Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal

Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is

Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where

A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted. Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.” Harron began with her demand: Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.

Former late-night television host David Letterman eviscerated President Trump in a rare interview, calling the president a “goon” who lacks any core principles. The 70-year-old comedian told GQ magazine in its upcoming June issue that while he has “no reason” to regret hosting Mr. Trump multiple times on “Late Night,” he is very “disappointed” that his former guest is now representing the country. “It makes me sick,” Mr. Letterman said. “But we always looked forward to having him on. He was a great guest. He was just a big, wealthy dope who’d come on and we would make fun of
