Fauxcahontas on the warpath.

Fauxcahontas on the warpath. And out for all to see during the confirmation hearing of Dr. Ben Carson for the head of Housing and Urban Development.  The transcript below is from

the hearing.  What I find amazing is that with a reported budget of $32.6 Billion (2014), how Warren determines that Carson can keep track of each and every penny, or as the conversation went $10.

Carson was gracious and level in his answers, and yet Warren continued with the minutia.  It is apparent that she has no grasp of the job requirements and duties of a Presidential Cabinet appointee.

mr. chairman and congratulations on your
0:01
new role as chair of this committee i’m
0:04
looking forward to working with you as
0:05
well as with six new members of our
0:07
committee dr. Carson thank you for being
0:10
here thank you
0:11
before we get into some of the questions
0:12
that are raised in my letter to you
0:14
earlier this week I just want to get an
0:16
answer to I think that’s simple
0:18
yes-or-no question if you are confirmed
0:22
to lead HUD you’ll be responsible for
0:25
issuing billions of dollars in grants
0:29
and loans to help develop housing and
0:32
provide a lot of housing related
0:33
services now housing development is an
0:37
area in which president elect Trump and
0:40
his family have significant business
0:43
interests can you assure me that not a
0:47
single taxpayer dollar that you give out
0:50
will financially benefit the
0:53
president-elect or his family
0:55
well senator I was worried that you
1:00
wouldn’t get back thank you for coming
1:01
back I’m back I can assure you that the
1:12
things that i do are driven by sense of
1:16
morals and values and therefore I will
1:20
absolutely not play favorites for anyone
1:24
dr. Carson at let me stop right there I
1:27
i’m actually trying to ask a more
1:29
pointed question and it’s not about your
1:32
good faith that’s not my concern
1:34
my concern is whether or not among the
1:38
billions of dollars that you will be
1:40
responsible for handing out in grants
1:43
and loans can you just assuring us that
1:46
not one dollar will go to benefit either
1:51
the president-elect or his family
1:54
it will not be my intention to do
1:56
anything I could to benefit any any
2:00
American I understand that’s for all
2:03
Americans everything that we do
2:05
do I take that to mean that you may
2:07
manage programs that will significantly
2:10
benefit the president-elect you can
2:13
get the main that I will manage things
2:16
in a way that benefits the American
2:18
people that is going to be the goal to
2:21
the best you understand it if there
2:24
happens to be an extraordinarily good
2:27
program that’s working for millions of
2:29
people and it turns out that that that
2:32
someone that you’re targeting is going
2:34
to gain you know ten dollars from it
2:37
am I going to say no the rest of you
2:39
Americans can’t have it
2:40
I think logic and common sense probably
2:43
would be the best way
2:45
yeah although we do have a problem here
2:47
and I appreciate your good faith in this
2:49
and I do dr. Carson the problem is that
2:52
you can assure is that HUD money out of
2:56
ten dollar varieties but of
2:58
multimillion-dollar varieties will not
3:01
end up in the president elects pockets
3:03
and the reason you can’t assurance of
3:05
that is because the president-elect is
3:09
hiding his family’s business interests
3:12
from you from me from the rest of
3:14
America and this just highlights the
3:17
absurdity and the danger of the
3:20
president elects refusal to put his
3:23
assets in a true blind trust he knows he
3:28
the president like knows what will
3:30
benefit him and his family financially
3:33
but the public doesn’t which means he
3:36
can divert taxpayer money into his own
3:39
pockets without anyone knowing about it
3:41
the only way that the American people
3:44
can know that the president is working
3:45
in their best interests and not in his
3:48
own is if he divest and puts his assets
3:52
in a true blind trust transferring his
3:55
holdings to his children does nothing as
3:58
the head of the nonpartisan ethics
4:00
committee said just last night since the
4:03
president-elect refuses to address this
4:05
voluntarily we need to pass the
4:08
presidential conflicts of interest act
4:10
that i introduced with more than 20 of
4:12
my colleagues which would require him to
4:15
do so
4:16
so with the time i have less i just want
4:20
to follow up very quickly on a letter
4:22
that I sent to you earlier this week and
4:24
we talked about in my artists and I
4:26
appreciated that
4:27
but and I appreciated it to as you know
4:30
more than 7 million children rely on HUD
4:32
for housing seven million people many of
4:35
them are children veterans people with
4:37
disabilities
4:39
um for many of these people had is the
4:41
difference between a stable home and
4:43
life out on the streets but one major
4:45
problem that we talked about his lead
4:48
exposure and according to the most
4:50
recent HUD study 62,000 public housing
4:54
units nearly six percent of our total
4:56
public housing stock are in need of lead
4:59
abatement you are highly accomplished
5:02
dr. we spoke at length about the
5:05
implications of lead and lead poisoning
5:08
our children can I just ask you to
5:11
commit today that you will make sure
5:14
that HUD resources are dedicated to
5:17
dramatically reducing the number of
5:19
public housing units where LED is a
5:22
problem i can assure you that I will
5:26
very much be working with you on that
5:28
310,000 cases right now children each of
5:35
which cost us enormous amounts money i
5:37
don’t think people even calculate that
5:39
and to that when we’re talking about
5:41
so yes I will be very vigorous in that
5:44
area i I’ve airy much appreciate it
5:47
um this is a particular problem for us
5:50
in the northeast is a particular problem
5:51
in boston where housing stock is old
5:54
route and it is absolutely critical that
5:57
we get the lead out of these housing
6:00
units and that our children have a
6:01
chance to grow up without being injured
6:04
by our own negligence i look forward to
6:06
working with thank you for your
6:07
leadership and angry
6:08
thank you dr. Carson senator Heller

Seven topics for discussion on a Saturday before the election.

Seven topics for discussion on a Saturday before the election.  Scanning the news this breaking-newsmorning these eight topics caught my eye.  Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves and comment below as you see fit.  And in no particular order lets get started.

Bloody October Pushes Chicago Past 600 Homicides.

 Wait, I thought Chicago was to be the poster city for all that was well and good with gun control?  Here is your real world example of how draconian gun laws impact the Second City and its residents.  And to add insult to injury, no one on the statist left gives a scintilla of acknowledgement to what is transpiring in Chicago.

Susan Sarandon explains why she’s not backing Hillary Clinton: ‘I don’t vote with my vagina’

I’m sure we’re all glad as it would make for a rather messy voting booth.

Democrats Don’t Have A Plan If Donald Trump Is Elected – BuzzFeed News

And we’re surprised about this why?  The statist democrats assume that Hillary Clinton (felon) will be summarily handed the presidency on November 8th and then coronated on the 20th of January 2017.  Now it is obvious that they are entirely consumed with Wikileaks 1-28 and the rest of the overflow of our ability to peek behind the curtain of what goes on and has gone on over the past years.  As I’ve previously written, why only two individuals have suffered any consequences from what we now know is baffling

Why Aren’t There More Gay Baseball Players?.

Given the historic nature of the recent end of the 2016 World Series,  this is the topic on the mind of those who follow baseball?  Ok, so it’s not any of the bizarre and lurid goings on of the soon to be wrapped up Presidential Election.

 Being a Journalism School graduate this is particularly disturbing.  Whatever happened to the 5 W’s and H that were taught when I was in class?  Journalism within the statist media has lost its way.
Pay for play, slush fund while working as a government employee?   There is so much wrong with this revelation that it is hard to know where to begin. Lets start with the fact that the gift was never reported as required.

The Case for and Against Daylight Saving Time.

It is that time of year once again to go through this exercise.  The sun will be up an hour earlier on Sunday and will set sometime in the middle of the afternoon.  I’ll excuse any lateness from anyone.

complete conspiracy.  Hell, it might just be a Google anomaly for all we know.  Suffice to say that it is curious and does give you pause to wonder just how accurate and possibly complete your search results are.

screenshot_1Should you be one of those, inexplicable undecided voters and you begin a Google search, this is your first pass.  And your first selection is Hillary Clinton.

 

screenshot_2Should you be of another mind and continue to type, this is your next choice.  Really Google?  Dancing with the Stars?  It makes no sense contextually.

screenshot_3Third and finally Google responds, “I got nothin’.”

 

 

Conspiracy, outright fraud, are certainly possibilities.  Having a new intern writing political and voting algorithms certainly comes to mind as well.  Overall it is and was an interesting exercise done on my computer last evening.  And thanks and a HT to the good folks at TheRebel.
