Trump signs order calling for work requirements in welfare programs

It doesn’t take a genius to see that paying people NOT to work is not a strategy for success.  This action by President Trump is just one step down a long road toward getting government out of the welfare business, where it has no business being in the first place.

WINNING!



Trump signs order calling for work requirements in welfare programs

BY BRETT SAMUELS – 

President Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order calling for federal agencies to establish or strengthen existing work requirements for certain individuals who benefit from federal welfare programs.

The White House issued a memo that argued those who rely on welfare would have an easier time achieving economic mobility through strengthened work requirements where they already exist, and the creation of new ones where applicable.

“The Federal Government should do everything within its authority to empower individuals by providing opportunities for work, including by investing in Federal programs that are effective at moving people into the workforce and out of poverty,” the executive order states.

The new requirements would apply to those who are able to work, according to the memo.

The order does not detail which specific programs will be subject to such requirements.

Instead, Trump’s executive order calls on the heads of the departments of Treasury, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation and Education to review public assistance programs within their agencies.

Those department heads are expected to submit a report within 90 days with a list of recommended changes to achieve Trump’s goals, according to the executive order.

The order also says the federal government will streamline services, review existing services and consolidate or eliminate programs that are ineffective or overlap in services.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families embraced the executive order and said it will allow the agency to take “aggressive action” toward enforcing work requirements.

“Strengthening work requirements for welfare recipients is a critical element of moving welfare recipients from dependency to self-sufficiency,” Steven Wagner, the acting assistant secretary for the organization, said in a statement.

Some GOP lawmakers have advocated for stronger work requirements to eliminate a perceived dependence on welfare.

The Trump administration last month approved Arkansas’s request to impose work requirements on certain Medicaid beneficiaries.

Racist Professor Asks “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?”

Where does one even begin with this level of absurdity?  This so-called professor of law posits the question “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?”, and unequivocally answers with “NO.”  He uses lots of broad brush arguments with no basis in fact that I would assume he KNOWS would never hold up in court, and would be immediately thrown out as hearsay and slander.  He is a “law” professor, right?  Let’s look at some of the more egregious examples of his projectionism and hypocrisy.

“Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped.”

As you do later in your diatribe, you are associating Donald Trump and his supporters with racism against blacks, yet you provide not one scintilla of evidence that Donald Trump is or has done anything racist against blacks.  I guess the approximately 8% of the black community who voted for Trump aren’t black enough for you?  Perhaps they are “Uncle Toms?”

“The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous dream of black and white children holding hands was a dream precisely because he realized that in Alabama, conditions of dominance made real friendship between white and black people impossible.”

Mr. Yankah is accusing an entire race of being racist, but in doing so is showing himself to be the bigoted racist.  There are SOME white people who are racist, just as there are SOME black people who are racist.  Mr. Yankah, why aren’t you embracing the words of the man whose coattails you hide behind by judging INDIVIDUALS by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin?  Hypocrite.

“History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way, and these recent months have put in the starkest relief the contempt with which the country measures the value of racial minorities.”

No reason to trust whites?  While blacks were at one time enslaved by whites (AND by blacks, AND by arab muslims), you were also freed by WHITES.  You were given the right to vote by WHITES.  The Civil Rights Act was passed by, you guessed it, WHITES.  The VAST majority of welfare dollars going to the black community is also be collected overwhelmingly from… wait for it… WHITES.  Sir, if you couldn’t trust whites, you would still be in chains working in cotton fields.  If you can read this, thank a WHITE Republican.

“America is transfixed on the opioid epidemic among white Americans (who often get hooked after being overprescribed painkillers — while studies show that doctors underprescribe pain medication for African-Americans). But when black lives were struck by addiction, we cordoned off minority communities with the police and threw away an entire generation of black and Hispanic men.”

Notice what the disingenuous “professor” of law does here.  He does the bait and switch.  He tries to equate the opioid problem in the white community with the illicit trade and addiction problems of crack, heroin, and meth in the black community.  Both are horrible, but they are NOT the same thing.  One who is prescribed opioids by a doctor is generally taking them for pain associated with a medical procedure, at least initially.  Those who take and become addicted to crack, meth, and/or heroine do it by CHOICE from the beginning.

“I will teach my boys to have profound doubts that friendship with white people is possible.”

You, sir, are a flaming racist, projecting your own faults onto people whom you have never met, and do not know.  You are making a sweeping generalization that is PURELY based on race while pointing the finger of racism at others.  Hypocrite.

“Only white people can cordon off Mr. Trump’s political meaning, ignore the “unpleasantness” from a position of safety.”

EXCUSE ME????  WHO has been more in danger since Trump was elected, and just as much during Barack Obama’s presidency???  You can’t continue the bullcrap lie that blacks are being targeted by white cops, or are being murdered by whites at some abnormally high rate.  The ACTUAL crime statistics prove that to be entirely false.  The ACTUAL crime statistics prove that blacks are MANY times more likely to be murdered by a BLACK person than by a white person.  They also prove that a white person is more likely to be killed by a black person than a white person.  But let’s go back to the “fear” thing.  Are their roving bands of whites roaming the inner cities LITERALLY hunting black people?  No.  There ARE mobs of blacks beating up whites.  How about things like the “knockout” “game?” Most perpetrators have been black attacking whites.  If there is ANY group that should be afraid of another based on the evidence, it is whites who should be “suspicious” of blacks.  But I don’t advocate the broad brush racism that you do.  I advocate a situational suspicion instead of a race-based suspicion.  If an angry mob of ANY color of people is moving toward you, you don’t wait around to see if they want to be friends.  If someone is pointing a gun at you, it doesn’t matter what skin color they are.  If someone is passing laws that are detrimental to your freedom and liberty, it doesn’t matter what their skin color happens to be, right?

“So, too, is his history of housing discrimination,…”

Again, you offer ZERO proof of your allegations.  Just like the rest of the Alinsky-left, you are just slinging mud to see what sticks.  You are repeating progressive media talking points with no citation, or research of your own.  You’re supposed to be a freaking LAW professor.  You of all people should know you don’t build a case on hearsay.

“…his casual conflation of Muslims with terrorists,…”

See above.  He has NEVER said that all muslims are terrorists.  He has POINTED OUT that many of the terrorist attacks in this country have been committed by MUSLIMS, most of whom were IMMIGRANTS or “REFUGEES” who were NEVER PROPERLY VETTED.  Donald Trump has been attempting to put in place travel and immigration restrictions on the VERY SAME countries that BARACK OBAMA did.  So, are you going to be intellectually honest and call Barack Obama an islamophobe and racist now?  No, you’re too much of an intellectually weak coward to be that even handed.

“…his reducing Mexican-Americans to murderers and rapists.”

TRUMP. NEVER. SAID. THIS.  You are quoting a viral MISQUOTATION of Donald Trump when he said that there are SOME bad people, rapists and murderers, coming across our border.  And he is FACTUALLY, 100% CORRECT to say so.  Does MS-13 ring a bell?  Do you read the news AT ALL?  There are dozens of stories every week of illegal aliens killing Americans, stealing identities, and all sorts of other crimes, ON TOP OF THEIR ORIGINAL CRIME OF COMING HERE ILLEGALLY.  Oh, and you refer to a group of “Mexican-Americans.”  I say you’re either American, or you’re whatever nationality the country you came from calls its citizens.  If you become an American citizen, there can be no dual loyalty.  One cannot serve two masters.  There can be no hyphens.

“They bristle at the accusation that they supported racism, insisting they had to ignore Mr. Trump’s ugliness.”

So, if I as a white American say that I do not support or condone racism in any way, I am to be dismissed and labeled a racist despite the COMPLETE LACK OF EVIDENCE that would back any assertion of racism, but if YOU say you’re not a racist, despite an entire article of evidence which the New York Times has published for you, we’re supposed to just believe you?  Again, Mr. Morally Superior Black Man, I point you back to the message of MLK, Jr. which you hide behind and PRETEND to embrace.  He would disavow you in a heartbeat, you noisy cymbal and clanging gong.

“They protest: Have they ever said anything racist? Don’t they shovel the sidewalk of the new black neighbors? Surely, they say, politics — a single vote — does not mean we can’t be friends.”

Yes, you jackwagon.  That’s EXACTLY what we say, and BELIEVE.  I don’t care if my neighbor is black, white, latino, oriental, Indian, Native American, etc.  I care that my neighbor ISN’T AN A**HOLE.

“My bi-ethnic wife, my most trusted friend, understands she is seen as a white woman, even though her brother and father are not. Among my dearest friends, the wedding party and children’s godparents variety, many are white.”

Funny how if a white person points out that they have black friends, or even a black spouse, people like YOU immediately say they have a “token black” friend to “hide their racism.”  Do you see the irony here?

As a self-respecting PERSON, I would be ashamed to pen my name to such an ignorant, racist piece of drivel as this NYT article by Mr. Ekow N. Yankah. However, the left has no shame, and doesn’t seem to have a problem exposing their own ignorance, racism, hatred, and hypocrisy. In fact, they seem to be wearing them as badges of “honor.”

Can We Build A Wall?


Can we build a wall on our southern border?

• The US-Mexico border is approximately 1,900 miles, or 10,032,000 ft long
• Trump said he would build a wall 30 feet deep (in the ground?), and 30 feet high, and I’ll assume 10 feet thick
• Every 10 foot long section of that wall (assuming solid construction) would require approximately 222.22 cubic yards of concrete
• 1,900 miles of such a wall would require 222,931,104 cubic yards of concrete
• Last time I priced concrete in my local area, it was $110/cubic yard
• At that price it would take $24,522,421,440 (about $24.5 billion) plus labor, etc to build the wall
• In 2010, it was estimated that illegal immigration costs taxpayers $113 billion dollars
• We have several million more illegal aliens now than in 2010, and they are receiving far more in benefits.

So, for LESS THAN HALF OF ONE YEAR’S WORTH of what we are spending on illegal aliens, we could build a heavily fortified wall, and then man it with guards and guns.


Catch-22, Ferguson Style

The police, National Guard, prosecutors, mayor, etc. in Ferguson just can’t win.  West Florissant is where most of the unrest was taking place in Ferguson. If the police and National Guard had been there in force, the protesters would have said “See? All these white cops are down here oppressing and provoking us.” But when the cops and National Guard are held back, and the thugs riot and burn, you get “Where were you? Why didn’t you protect us? You stood back and did nothing while our town burned, and watched it happen.”

You just can’t win with these stupid people. This is the product of more than a half century of hanging on the apron strings of a democrat party who has sought nothing more than to make these people totally dependent, and they have succeeded. These people are the epitome of the victim class. NOTHING is EVER their fault. When they are killing each other, it is ‘whitey’s‘ fault. When they are committing a crime and get killed by a cop, it is ‘whitey’s‘ fault. When they are acting like thugs and killing white people, it is somehow ‘whitey’s‘ fault. When they don’t have something, they think they should be given it for free. When they get something for free, they didn’t get enough of it.  They don’t want ‘justice,’ they want free stuff, and a free pass on their bad behavior.

These people have allowed themselves to once again be reduced to the level of animals. They believed the hollow promises and lies of the democrats for decades, and in doing so destroyed their families, communities, initiative, self esteem, and pissed away the gains that blacks had made in this nation up to and after the Civil War. Since the abolition of slavery, blacks in this nation have no one to blame for their plight but themselves. Had they continued the hard road of taking responsibility for their own actions, they would be much better off now. Choices have consequences. Now the black community in America is faced with a tough one. Either continue to be slaves to the democrats who have led you down the path you’re on now, or take responsibility for your actions and WORK to restore your families and community.



The GOP Has Surrendered to a Tyrant. Governors MUST Act

31 Republican States SECEDE

Republican governors, are you paying attention? Who is going to pay for this executive amnesty? WE ARE.  Our already cash-strapped states and communities will be forced to foot the bill for benefits for millions of newly “legalized” illegal aliens. The progressive establishment leadership of the GOP in Washington DC is planning to do NOTHING to put a stop to this. I’m afraid that we can wait no longer for anyone in Washington DC to do the right thing. If you all band together, we can stop all of this mess with one proclamation. Red states, band together and SECEDE. The progressive states could do little or nothing to stop it, and could not survive without us. Once they realize they will die on the vine without us, we can reunite the republic on OUR terms. What other choices do we have left? All three branches of the federal government are off the constitutional reservation, and the military has been castrated and appears unwilling to honor their oath to protect and defend the Constitution. If the goal is the restoration of the republic, the rule of law, and the Constitution, then it would seem the only alternatives left are a chaotic and bloody civil war, or secession. I believe a mass secession has the best chance of succeeding.



Democrats Have Been Lying to Black Americans for Decades
