The public has recognized that Corporate, Chamber of Commerce Republicans,
and Wall Street Democrats
are the same party, and serve the same constituency,
and it’s NOT THEM.

HUD Audit Finds Unheard of $500 Billion in Accounting Errors

Ben Carson is the Secretary General of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

I told you Donald Trump was focused on cutting corruption in Government. I have been writing here that the reason for the overwhelming bi-partisan hatred of Trump is precisely because he is focused on destroying the moneystreams our leaders have set up for themselves under the guise of "Government".

From HUD:

HUD reissued its fiscal years 2016 and 2015 (restated) consolidated financial statements due to pervasive material errors that we identified. 
The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively. 
There were several other unresolved audit matters, which restricted our ability to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to express an opinion. 
These unresolved audit matters relate to (1) the Office of General Counsel’s refusal to sign the management representation letter, (2) HUD’s improper use of cumulative and first-in, first-out budgetary accounting methods of disbursing community planning and development program funds, (3) the $4.2 billion in nonpooled loan assets from Ginnie Mae’s stand-alone financial statements that we could not audit due to inadequate support, (4) the improper accounting for certain HUD assets and liabilities, and (5) material differences between HUD’s subledger and general ledger accounts. This audit report contains 11 material weaknesses, 7 significant deficiencies, and 5 instances of noncompliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Inspector General Ducks Ambush Interview About Her Failed Oversight of Imran Awan & Family

TruePundit: VIDEO: Inspector General Ducks Ambush Interview About Her Failed Oversight of Imran Awan & Family
Former U.S. Congressional Inspector General Theresa Grafenstine was confronted in San Diego Friday and questioned on why Imran Awan and family were allowed to run roughshod in Congress while she was charged with oversight of its cyber security.
She offered few answers and her handlers at the security conference quickly provided cover for Grafenstine, who recently retired as Inspector General charged with Congressional oversight. 
Grafenstine, questioned by CrowdSource the Truth editor Jason Goodman, acknowledged the Awan’s case was indeed her case, however, she “turned” the case over to federal law enforcement officials in late 2016. After Goodman pressed the squeamish former IG — who now works for Deloitte as a managing director in Virginia — Grafenstine admitted no one from the FBI has questioned her about the case since late 2016. 
Goodman was all but tossed out of the event for asking legitimate questions regarding Congressional security. 
Grafenstine’s speech, ironically, focused on cyber security and touted her as an expert on the subject.  
Goodman, along with journalist George Webb have been doggedly pursuing the Awan case for a solid year.

Is Las Vegas Police Department a Social Justice Center, Did They Basically Invite Chaos Upon the Citizenry, and Are They Now Actively Covering Their Tracks?

Rogimoto Veritas at the conservative treehouse said:
"I direct you to page 41, paragraph 3, of the linked document. It appears as if the LVMPD has been completely taken over by progressives in 2010-12 as directed by the Obama administration."
Here it is:

Judge grants order to stop MGM Resorts from destroying evidence Updated: Oct 19, 2017 10:23 PM PDT

LAS VEGAS - Attorneys representing a woman injured in the Route 91 festival shooting say their motivation is to preserve answers.

The attorneys were in a Las Vegas courtroom against MGM Resorts International, trying to force the company to preserve records tied to the tragedy.

Rachel Sheppard was shot three times at the Route 91 festival. She's currently recovering.

Thursday morning, her attorney got a temporary restraining order issued against MGM Resorts International.

Sheppard's attorney Brian Nettles asked for the order to preserve key card records, surveillance video, radio traffic and anything connected to the shooting.

That includes the festival grounds and the room at Mandalay Bay where the shooting originated.

MGM lawyers argued the request was broad and unnecessary, since that material was already being preserved for law enforcement.

But Nettles said it was important to get it on the record and in open court, not just for his client, but for the public.

"Our concern is that before the discovery period starts, something bad could happen. That something could be altered, something could be destroyed. They said in court today, they're already looking at fixing or changing that room," he said.

Nettles said, he visited the shooter's room Wednesday and said it was dangerous, with bio-hazard materials and a still-broken window.

He said, MGM was looking to clean it up once law enforcement was finished. The order stops that from happening.

Both sides will be back in court Oct. 30

Talk about bad optics! TMZ report date 10/19/2017

Ellen DeGeneres I Got A New Beach House For $18.6M And It's Not In Malibu!

Interesting video reveals the location at which Campos received his award on Oct. 10th, Jean Georges Steakhouse, was remodeled in July 2017. The image provided of the award dinner posted online by SPFPA (Intl Union, Security, Police & Fire Prof. of America)

illustrates Campos seated in the dining room of this steakhouse before renovations which were reported in July 14, 2107 

The video also suggests the conflict in dates between award and massacre as well as the questions regarding Jesus Campos', the security guard's, apparent weight gain visible in the Ellen show.

No Depression 2017

Friends you'll no doubt recall that back during the Obama administration conservative commentators including yours truly would always call out the false narrative when the unemployment numbers came out.

Sure it dropped. From 4.7 (or whatever) to 4.5 (or whatever) but that is in no small part because so many folks are no linger being counted as unemployed.

There was an uptick in hiring! Sure, McDonald's is doing well because that's all so many can afford (and so many not even that many weeks).

So it's irritating now to hear so many of these same commentators now claim how much better the economy is doing when the same sets of numbers present themselves for nearly the same reasons. How quickly the Truth gets reordered when it is their man in residence at Pennsylvania Ave.

No doubt there are areas of the country that are now doing better. And truth be told I would rather have Trump as President than any other reprobate you can name.

However, hear in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, Eastern Division, it is still a paycheck to paycheck existence for so many. For too many. And for too many others even paycheck to paycheck sounds like a good deal.

No mass hiring. No big businesses coming in. No rejuvenation to speak of. Been a number of big layoffs though. More people getting in The Line.

I can see this with my own eyes. I drove past The Church not 1/2 an hour ago. The parking lot & surrounding streets are more crowded than I have seen in some time. The line is out the door and across the parking lot.

Still carrying the boxes and bags to be filled with whatever the local Good Samaritans could spare, many of whom are doing only marginally better themselves.

Any trickle down from Wall Street going up has dried before it reaches us. Jobs to be had around here are still sparse, mostly art time. The better ones in groceries or department stores. The lesser at the fast food joints.

So while they dicker over tax cuts and Obamacare, complain about how the commander in chief addressed a grieving family, each continuing to blame the other side for continuing ills that are a pestilence to the constituents they have forgotten about, those same constituents are getting a little leaner, a little harder, have less hope in their eyes and more cynicism than a person should have carry.

Nothing has changed. Same leaders same lies and they think we will believe it. Time to dislodge all their slovenly asses. November 8 taught them NOTHING and it is time for them to go.

And since we're in a revolutionary mood these days anyway, let's move beyond term limits and and restore Congress to the part time job it was intended to be. And put them in this line.

And maybe get them to The Church as well.

The Real MGM Story – Direct From Their Security Employees

From Wayne Allen Root:
I met in-person days ago with MGM security personnel. They called me and requested a meeting. They told me a story of a company that is simply a mess…filled with disgruntled employees…faulty equipment…no one with any training for a crisis…no one STILL with any idea what to do in case of emergency…and to top it off… 
A full-blown mutiny going on. 
No one staying at MGM properties has any idea how bad it really is. They are NOT protected…from anything. I’d call it a PERFECT STORM that opened the door to terror attack. And the worst part is, nothing has changed. Here are just a few highlights of our conversation: 
*MGM security personnel are “undermanned, underpaid, under-trained.” That’s a quote direct from security supervisors. 
*My sources say because MGM is heavily in debt and desperately trying to save money, and because executives see security as a department that “produces no profit,” MGM made decisions to savage the security budget. 
*Most of MGM security is disarmed. Only supervisors have weapons. And they are in their offices, or the control room. If there’s trouble, they are far away, leaving unarmed guards unable to defend guests or themselves for long periods of time. Guards feel helpless. 
*There is a petition at this very moment from MGM employees demanding guards be armed because employees do not feel safe at work. 
*Security guards are so upset they are planning to unionize at every MGM property, all at once, in the coming days. 
*My MGM security sources believe MGM security guard Jesus Campos is a key part of this mess. There are many questions that need to be answered about Campos. He’s the only witness to the worst mass shooting in U.S. history and his only interview EVER was with a comedian (Ellen Degeneres) whose show is sponsored by MGM and who makes millions with her own slot machines at MGM casinos? 
MGM has just made things worse. They are digging the hole deeper. 
*Media critics have asked why Campos was sent alone to the 32nd floor? Because of budget cuts and severe understaffing, MGM guards are almost always sent alone on calls. 
*MGM has lots of guards on the casino floor, but often has only 3 guards on duty for thousands of guest rooms. Unarmed guards. 
*Many critics have asked after Campos was shot, why were police not called quickly. 
My sources say calls to police are ALWAYS a last resort at any MGM property. They never want police involved. They want no public record of incidents at MGM properties. 
*Secondly, they report MGM security has cheap, faulty equipment. Their radios are the worst problem. They often don’t work, or suffer “dead zones” all over the hotels. 
Campos may have been unable to reach his supervisors for crucial minutes. He may have been forced to use his personal cell phone.

George Bush's Cunt Is a Pestilent Crevasse of Puss and Reeking Excretions

First, it was former President George W. Bush. The most recent former Republican president lambasted a political culture that caused "bigotry" to seem "emboldened." The public comments were Bush's most pointed since President Donald Trump took office in January. 
"In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined," the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute. "Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious and pressing needs. The American dream of upward mobility seems out of reach for some who feel left behind in a changing economy. Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts. Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication." 
The forum was branded as being "focused on freedom, free markets, and security." It featured speakers such as former first lady Laura Bush, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley. 
And Bush provided a substantial condemnation of the state of US politics. Bush said "people of every race, religion, and ethnicity can be fully and equally American" and noted that "bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the American creed."
