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

Comments:
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.

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?

Mike Lee: Senate parliamentarian

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that the Senate parliamentarian has told him that it may be possible for Republicans to push harder on repealing Obamacare´s regulations than the current House bill, which contradicts the assertion by House leadership that the legislation goes after Obamacare as aggressively as possible under Senate rules. "What I understood her to be saying is that there´s no reason why an Obamacare repeal bill necessarily could not have provisions repealing the health insurance regulations," Lee said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, relating a conversation with parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough about reconciliation he had on

In a last-minute bid to woo conservatives ahead of a high-stakes vote on Thursday on repealing and replacing Obamacare, House leaders are considering gutting more Obamacare regulations. (Snip) Previously, House leaders have argued that the regulations could not be nixed, because doing so would blow up the bill in the Senate, where Republicans will have to pass the measure under restrictive rules to enable it to clear with a simple majority. But a House leadership aide told the Washington Examiner that on Wednesday, Republicans received new information from the Senate, indicating that axing the regulations wouldn´t automatically doom the bill from

No, Sebastian Gorka is not a goose-stepping Nazi. (Snip) The personal attacks aimed at Gorka and Michael Anton, both key national-security aides to President Trump, aren’t the only false stories in the left’s smear campaign against these two. They have been painted in outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Politico and the Atlantic as Islamophobic hardliners hellbent on dragging us into more Mideast wars. But that bears little resemblance to their writing, which the Trump haters haven’t bothered to explore in any depth. A closer reading of their voluminous writings reveals a cold-eyed realism about global affairs

Obama Admin Loyalists, Government
Insiders Sabotage Trump White House
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

The Obama administration worked in its final weeks in office to undermine the incoming Trump White and continues to do so, according to multiple sources both in and out of the White House. Behind the effort, these sources say, are senior government officials who previously worked under President Obama and remain loyal to his agenda. These individuals leak negative information about the Trump White House and its senior staff to a network of former Obama administration officials who then plant this information in key media outlets including the Washington Post and New York Times. Meanwhile, holdovers from the Obama administration are working

When Boston public schools introduced a new standard map of the world this week, some young students’ felt their jaws drop. In an instant, their view of the world had changed. The USA was small. Europe too had suddenly shrunk. Africa and South America appeared narrower but also much larger than usual. (Snip) The result goes a long way to rewriting the historical and sociopolitical message of the Mercator map, which exaggerates the size of imperialist powers. “This is the start of a three-year effort to decolonize the curriculum in our public schools,” said Colin Rose, assistant superintendent of opportunity and

Senator Al Franken (D-Minnesota) engaged Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch in a contentious exchange over one of Gorsuch´s dissents on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. Franken harshly criticized Gorsuch´s dissent against a driver for a Kansas trucking company who was fired for breaking company policy by leaving his trailer with frozen brakes on the side of an interstate and driving his rig to try to get warm. As Franken explained, TransAm Trucking driver Alphonse Maddin parked his rig on the side of Interstate 88 on a -14 degree night and noticed his trailer´s brakes were frozen and his

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Monday called for President Trump to apologize for his claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before the election. During an interview on "Mac & Gaydos" on KTAR Arizona radio, Flake was questioned about whether Trump should admit his claims were wrong, CNN reported. "I think that ought to happen and we ought to move on," Flake said. Earlier this month, the president claimed the former president had wiretapped Trump Tower before the election. On Monday, FBI Director James Comey said the Department of Justice has "no information" to support President Trump´s wiretapping claim. Comey refused

Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report.

Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.
