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.
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.
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?
Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch said he would be open to step aside and not run for re-election in 2018 if a candidate like Mitt Romney were to run for his position in his stead. In an interview with National Journal, the Republican senator who has been in office since 1976 said he "might very well consider" not campaigning for another term if an "outstanding person" were to run for his position. (Snip) In February, Romney declined to rule out a run for a Senate seat in the future. "I don´t have any predictions on what I might do. I´m not going
Health care — as some recently learned — is not easy. Amid renewed efforts to revive the doomed American Health Care Act, yesterday, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell seemed to once again throw cold water on the whole idea. “It’s pretty obvious we were not able in the House to pass a replacement,” McConnell told reporters, yesterday. “Our Democratic friends ought to be pretty happy about that because we have the existing law in place and I think we’re just going to have to see how that works out.” The majority leader continued: “We believe it will not work out
A spirited Hillary Clinton took on the Trump administration Tuesday in one of her first public speeches since she lost the presidential election, criticizing Donald Trump and his spokesman Sean Spicer on everything from health care to their treatment of women. Cracking jokes about her November defeat and her months out of the limelight since, Clinton spoke to thousands of businesswomen in San Francisco, joking there was no place she´d rather be, ´other than the White House.´ Without mentioning President Donald Trump by name, Clinton faulted the Republican presidential administration repeatedly, including calling its representation of women in top jobs
Sen. John McCain called on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to explain his decision to brief President Donald Trump on possible “unmasking” of Trump transition officials, suggesting that Nunes has undermined the credibility of the panel by not first communicating with fellow committee members. “I think there needs to be a lot of explaining to do,” McCain said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning." “I’ve been around for quite a while, and I’ve never heard of any such thing. Obviously, on a committee like an intelligence committee, you’ve got to have bipartisanship; otherwise, the committee loses credibility. And there’s so
Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Breitbart editor at large Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash,” detailed how the former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign John Podesta may have violated federal law by failing to disclose stock shares he owned from a Kremlin-funded company. Schweizer said, “In 2011, John Podesta joins the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board of a Russian entity called Rusnano, puts a billion rubles which is about 35-million-dollar into John Podesta’s company. Now, what is
The Western media missed an oh-so juicy nugget out Russia recently that should have set off alarm bells in Washington. Asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova gave a long winded answer that can be read below. In her answer, Zakharova suggested Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private. The shocking statement can be found in the second to last paragraph of Zakharova’s answer highlighted in both bold and italic. You could just imagine the headlines this would have made if this was about a Trump administration
On Tuesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Senator Lindsey Graham criticized House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) for conducting “sort of an Inspector Clouseau investigation here,” and putting “his objectivity in question, at the very least.” Graham said that he thinks Nunes “put his objectivity in question, at the very least.” He added that Nunes should share the information he was given that suggested improper conduct regarding the Trump transition team with others on the committee, and if he doesn’t do that, “then I think he’s lost his ability to lead.” Graham also criticized Democrats on the committee for
Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) on Tuesday told The Hill that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) should "absolutely" recuse himself from his panel´s investigation into Russia´s meddling in last year’s election. Jones, a member of the House Armed Services Committee who frequently bucks leadership, is the first Republican in Congress to call on Nunes to step aside. "How can you be chairman of a major committee and do all these things behind the scenes and keep your credibility? You can´t keep your credibility," Jones said just off the House floor. “If anything has shown that we need a commission,
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes will "never" reveal to his fellow committee members the source of the raw intelligence information which he claims allowed him to know that members of the Trump transition team had been "incidentally" caught and identified in conversations during routine surveillance of foreign agents. Nunes, R-Calif., was asked in an interview with Fox News if he would share the source with committee members, and he replied, "We will never reveal those sources and methods." The reporter pressed, asking, "Even to other members of the committee?"
CNN’s Brian Stelter condemned Fox News for covering the alleged gang rape of a 14-year-old Maryland high school student by at least one illegal immigrant. He said coverage of rape is normally reserved for the local news and suggested Fox News is only covering this one because of the ongoing debate about illegal immigration. “Rapes and assaults and murders are local news stories on a daily basis,” Mr. Steltersaid Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” “But when do they break through to become national news, and when do they not? This week the health care bill in talks in the House
Newly-elected DNC Chairman Tom Perez downplayed the notion that Democrats are becoming the "Party of No" by saying he´d be willing to work with Trump on socialized medicine, while vowing to block nearly every other White House initiative from infrastructure spending to Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Washington Post reporter Dan Balz asked Perez during a question and answer session whether Democrats were in danger of becoming the Party of No—a moniker frequently attached to Congressional Republicans during the Obama era—and whether he would be willing to work with Trump on any policy areas. Perez pointed to Obamacare, which he called
Barack Obama isn’t even in office anymore but Democrats are still pining for their long lost savior. Liberal commentator and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus Angela Rye bemoaned this fact on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night. After discussing Congressman Devin Nunes’ comments about the investigation into Trump’s wiretapping claims, Rye expressed outrage that the media wasn’t talking about other issues, instead of talking about “something that didn’t happen.” After conservative commentator Mary Katharine Ham expressed that she had “no chill” for any administration wiretapping any individual, Rye jumped in to tie this back to racism and how this would’ve
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members. He later
With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,
Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,
Barack Obama’s former press secretary is now a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, the network announced Monday. “Josh recently completed a ten-year run with President Obama, most recently serving as White House Press Secretary from 2014-2017,” NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin said in a joint statement. “A native of Kansas City, Josh graduated from Rice University with a degree in political science and policy studies. With his wealth of experience and insight, Josh will be a great addition to our roster of contributors and will be an asset for our two networks as
Broken Arrow, Oklahoma - Three teenagers were killed Monday, shot by a man as they were breaking into his home. Officers say it happened at a home near 91st and Clearview Drive in Wagoner County. The Wagoner County Sheriff´s Office said the homeowner and his adult son were in the home when three males wearing masks and gloves tried to break in at about 12:30 p.m. The homeowner´s son shot the intruders with a rifle, deputies said, killing all three. (Snip) Deputies said the resident armed himself with an AR-15 rifle and walked toward the back door where he encountered
New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers. Foot traffic has dipped once again, Barclays analysts note, straight-up describing the magnitude this time as “staggering.” Technically, it’s 3 percent, which can make “staggering” seem a little far-fetched — until you consider it translates
Less than a week after the failed attempt to repeal Obamacare, President Trump will sign an executive order that could spell the end of Obama-era environmental policy. The order will curb the enforcement of a number of climate regulations, in an effort, the Trump administration says, to prioritize American jobs above addressing climate change. According to Mark Lynas, a British author, journalist and environmental activist who focuses on climate change, the order "is intended to make coal competitive again in the US economy, by refossilizing the US power sector and demonstrably increasing carbon emissions." "This is politically symbolic, as it will show that
As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. Determining what exactly happened is one of the most pressing problems facing
On the same day that the House of Representatives canceled its vote on Ryancare, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks filed a simple one-line bill to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. The Huntsville Republican titled the bill ‘Obamacare Repeal Act.” It is short and to the point, AI.com reported. “Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill reads. Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told constituents last week that he
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s path to 60 votes is rapidly closing — setting the stage for a nuclear showdown in the Senate as soon as next week. Senior Democratic sources are now increasingly confident that Gorsuch can’t clear a filibuster, saying his ceiling is likely mid- to upper-50s on the key procedural vote. That would mark the first successful filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee since Abe Fortas for chief justice in the 1960s. In the latest ominous sign for the federal judge from Colorado, Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said Monday he’ll oppose Gorsuch on the cloture vote, which is expected
