Weeding Out Waste and
Fraud at Federal Agencies

American Thinker, by H. Sterling Burnett

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 3/10/2018 6:12:04 AM

Some recent inspector general reports from within various federal agencies show that the Trump administration is attempting to weed out abuse, fraud, and waste in government programs. Early in his tenure as secretary of the Department of the Interior (DOI), Ryan Zinke asked for a briefing on DOI grant programs and found to his dismay that not a single person could tell him how much DOI disbursed in grants every year or what projects it had funded or was committed to funding. Saying he feared that the grant program was open to fraud and abuse, Zinke order DOI to review its

Comments:
This kind of thing has to be going on in every agency, every day. It´s fine to expose each incident but unless these people can be fired and punished it will continue. It´s not Trump´s fault they are not fired. Government-worker unions should be banned -- it would take an act of Congress -- and civil service rules strengthened. With a budget in the trillions, how many hundreds of billions are fraudulently and wastefully spent, at our expense?

I can just imagine the mess left by the Obama admin. They operated without a budget and an open checkbook. I would not be surprised to find out that much more than three trillion was stolen, wasted, paid to muslims or ended up in one of the Foundation accounts.

So the US Atty office is ´too busy´ to prosecute open/shut case of a sweetheart deal stealing taxpayer money? Didn´t Trump/Sessions fire all Obama US Attys and appoint new ones??

"After receiving the I.G.´s report, the U.S. Attorney´s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia declined to prosecute the case."

Continue exposing the graft we all know is rampant in the government and American voters will cheer. The theft, waste and fraud is abhorrent to tax payers. Keep up the good work because it will pay dividends come election season. Expose it and use the truth that comes out of that to begin to dismantle the public sector unions. We must destroy the bureaucratic mindset that has embedded itself in the government. The money they blithely spend and waste is not theirs, it belongs to the Americans who pay their salaries and benefits. We want accountability for every cent!

"government regulatory agencies are just too big for Congress or even their own auditors to exercise proper oversight"

Don´t you think this is by design?

The government can do whatever it wants and the chances of getting caught at it are slim. According to this article, even if caught, nothing may happen to you.

How about a new law that says if you are responsible for more than $5 million of improperly spent federal funds, you are fired and prohibited from government employment for 10 years. Note this is not just illegal actions but improper management. No prosecution needed. Large companies manage such oversight, why not the government.

MOST of these Feral agencies, departments, bureaus, and boards should not exist at all!. ABOLISH them. Abolish. Not "defund", cut back, or restrict. Abolish. Fire the bureaucrats, burn the buildings, trash the regs. Virtually all of these lack any authorization under the Constitution to exist, ever. Today would be nice.

If I remember correctly while living in Chicagoland in the1960’s there was a mantra under Mayor Daley ( the original) “ there is graft and fraud in the democrat city

government, so just put it in the budget.”

The practice carries on at all levels of government today! That is why there is an automatic increase in spending, and no line item review!

Every cut is considered “it’s only” and will not effect the over all, yes only a billion here and only a billion there! It’s only! If we could get ready of it’s only we all would have more money and less government

Secretly cut off their ability to spend money at some random point within 4 months of the end of the fiscal year. Most of the money wasted is to spend what they have so their budget stays as fat the next year.

Also, cut out all the money shuffling between various budget lines.

´Because bureaucrats aren´t held accountable when they undertake illegal activities or exercise inept financial controls, they play fast and loose with taxpayers´ money, resulting in poor program results and squandered resources.´

So I presume that fraud, abuse and malfeasance in govt is the new norm now? Nobody is to be held accountable under any circumstances? Oh, that´s right. Just look at the DOJ, the FBI and the NSA for examples. Lois Lerner and Eric Holder. Oh... and the Clinton Crime Family. And the beat goes on.

The last sentence in the article:

´´Only when bureaucrats lose their jobs and pensions or spend some time behind bars for their malfeasance will they take seriously their charge to serve the public and spend taxpayers´ dollars wisely.´´

So much of this fraud, abuse, theft and waste is as obvious as a pimple on the prom queens nose, but NOTHING EVER HAPPENS to the criminals doing it. That last sentence IS the only solution.

I agree with everything except for the "or" in the last sentence.
Why would Congress approve of a program that was to big to be audited, knowing it would result to rampant misuse of taxpayer dollars, he said rhetorically.
It seems apparent that every facet of government is complicit in the criminal enterprises shown in the article. I would guess that the examples were not cherry-picked. It has been a peeve of mine that these agencies are not audited. Surely, the audits would save more than they cost. Isn´t the OIG already doing this in effect?

10% cut per year for 10 years would do it. No, that is not zeroing the budget.

That would leave them with a budget that is just under 39% of what they started with, and my bet is that all the important stuff would still get done.

If they concentrated on the 90% that they thought was most "critical" each year, they would do a good job of cutting the BS, fraud and waste.

A recent Justice Department report on U.S. immigration courts provides a rare glimpse into the difficulties faced by the Trump administration as it repairs the damages inflicted on these tribunals over the last 20 years. But give credit to the courts’ new executive, James McHenry. Early on, he identified the need for transparency and has made accurate disclosure of court business one of his agency’s highest priorities. Candor, if not reform, demands no less. It’s a good start for an executive whose predecessors often avoided—and sometimes denied—the truth about the courts’ troubling dynamics. Yet the courts limped along, their annual reports

Our friend Howard Root attended the Trump rally in Duluth last night. This is his (fantastic) report along with photos he took at the event (at the top and bottom below): When I arrived at 4:00 p.m., the line for admission was at least a half mile long. People had been lining up since before 10:00 a.m., with the line snaking through a glass skyway where the afternoon sun had raised the temperature to over 100. I’ve seen shorter lines for Springsteen tickets, yet everyone was exceptionally polite. I only saw one protester on the walk over. He was standing on

“Are you an American or not?” It’s a simple question, one that every U.S. census should include, especially when the survey already contains nonsensical and intrusive inquiries into one’s ethnic DNA composition and whether one co-habits with someone of the opposite sex or one’s own. Whether you are a citizen or not is a valid question in a civic-minded constitutional democracy. Whether your parents are ethnic Chinese born in Peru or you are a nonpracticing heterosexual, not so much. And yet, the inclusion of a citizenship question and other changes rightly being made by the Trump administration to the 2020 census caused a

Politics has a way of turning everything upside down. Flit over to Twitter and the same government media echo chamber that was loudly defending the Iran deal is concern trolling about strong inspections of North Korea’s nuclear program and worrying that President Trump’s suspension of military exercises is far too great of a concession to the tiny tyrant. The clever ones ask, “What’s the difference between the Iran deal and the North Korean negotiations”? Isn’t Trump’s stated willingness to meet with dictators a lot like Obama’s no preconditions pledge? And then there are the trade wars. What is he thinking by upsetting the

Over the last century, the world has witnessed the slow but steady depoliticization of America and Western Europe in favor of the rule of the apolitical “expert.” The great challenge of our era is to foster the return of actual political life between the people and their elected officials. President Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-un successfully served this purpose. One must jettison the abstractions of modern intellectuals in order to make politics possible again. Perhaps nowhere is this truer than on matters of foreign policy. As Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Angelo Codevilla has written (No Victory, No Peace), as our increasingly

Liberal media is aghast at the president´s rough handling of Canadian boy-band frontman Justin Trudeau, and his confrontational approach overall at the Group of Seven summit. When the dust settles, though, Trump may accomplish what eluded Bill Clinton, George W.

The leadership of the Miss America beauty pageant announced this week it would eliminate the historic “bathing beauty” or swimsuit portion of the competition. The decision was explained as a reform to stop the young ladies who compete, from being judged on their appearance. Those statements were made as if they were obviously related; that there is no real difference between being judged on one’s appearance, and being judged on one’s nearly-naked appearance. It’s rather sad, that those notions would be so blithely conflated; sad, and in its own way, as revealing as a skimpy bikini. If you can’t find a middle ground between

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.
