Trump Forces Pentagon To Drain Swamp Corruption, Carry Out Historic $2.4T Review

Americans are always concerned when they hear the word ‘billion’ in relation to government spending. And they should be, considering that all that money comes from their hard-earned tax dollars.

So, when the Pentagon announced that it was going to do something that has never been done before, and it would take $1 billion to do it, of course Americans are going to show real concern.

Especially when it’s something that has been required of the Department of Defense by federal law since the 1990s, but has never been completed.

Leave it to President Trump to finally get the Pentagon to fall in line. The DoD has agreed to go through a full financial audit for the first time ever.

And just to be clear, the DoD has been around since 1949, but came as an outgrowth of the National Security Act of 1947. So, that’s 70 years of no financial accountability folks.

“The most shocking thing about being in Congress that there has never been a comprehensive audit of the DoD,” said Rep. Salud Carbajal, D-Calif., who is a freshman member of the committee.“I think if we don’t get it together, we are going to lose the American people’s trust in what we are trying to do here.”

House lawmakers on Wednesday applauded the Pentagon’s effort to finally undergo a full audit, even though Defense Department Comptroller David Norquist said the effort could lead to almost $1 billion in costs this year.

Of course, the audit itself doesn’t cost $1 billion, but the audit and the money it will take to fix all the problems discovered by the audit will.

Those costs include $367 million on the actual audit process that was announced and launched by Norquist last month. He also said the military expects to pay $551 million to fix the problems uncovered by the audit.

Norquist, the brother of tenacious tax activist Grover Norquist, was appointed by President Trump in May and vowed a get-tough approach to finally putting the military’s financial books in order after years of delays.

Some problems have already been found. In an initial audit, the Army found 39 Black Hawk helicopters that weren't on the books, Defense Department Comptroller David Norquist said. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Matt Hecht)

The Pentagon has about $2.4 trillion in assets but has never gone through a full financial audit.

That’s crazy. The Pentagon has $2.4 trillion in assets, that’s trillion with a ‘t’, and they have never gone through a full financial audit.

I would agree that Rep. Salud Carbajal is correct to say that the government could completely lose Americans trust over this. Everyone has to be wondering just how much waste the DoD has been getting away with for seven decades.

Thank goodness President Trump is in office to set things straight, and to earn back the trust of the people.

Donald Wins Back 2,500 Jobs And $1B From Mexico, Gives It To Northern State

When Donald Trump says something, he means it. It’s coming as a shock to many people. We haven’t seen a politician fulfill his promises since … I don’t know, Reagan?

Since taking office, Trump has won victory after victory for America. The stock market is surging. The economy is booming. Jobs are flowing back into the United States. Along with all this good news has been numerous companies announcing big developments.

From new plants to employee bonuses, American companies are winning, thanks to the president.

Now yet another major company has announced a big change. And, it’s too bad for Mexico.

From Joe For America:

Looks like Chrysler Dodge Ram is COMING BACK! Grab Life!….

Remember back when President Obama…said, “what’s he going to do wave his magic wand?”. Well, yes, he is! It’s called POLICY!

Mainly it’s about cutting taxes and reducing regulations to stimulate this economy. It’s called ‘America First’…

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is the latest company to announce good news resulting from the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The company said it plans to invest more than $1 billion in the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan, as well as relocate the production of its Ram Heavy Duty truck in 2020, which is currently being manufactured in Saltillo, Mexico.

Moving a plant to Michigan would create about 2,500 jobs, Reuters reported.

The company also said it would give $2,000 bonuses to 60,000 of its U.S. employees, although the bonuses will not include senior leadership.

Ram trucks are some of the most popular in the United States. So it might come as a surprise to learn they are made in Mexico. But not for much longer.

That $1 billion investment means modern improvements to the planet, more jobs, and plenty more American-made trucks.

It really shows you how out-of-touch the Democrats have been. Obama is on record as denying Trump’s ability to bring back jobs.

Yes, it turns out Trump does have a magic wand. It’s called cutting regulation and lowering taxes. In the past, Presidents wanted to help the economy. Obama? I guess he liked Mexico more than the U.S.

But those days are over. Trump’s influence has brought one company after another back to the U.S. He is actually working to fulfill his campaign promises. It may have seemed impossible in the past. But, President Trump is proving that anything is possible.

Be sure to spread this good news to everyone you know. It will shut up your Trump-hating friends. At least for one day.

President Trump Fires 2 Of Barack’s Most Powerful Swamp Slugs

Even though Barack Obama left office a year ago, we all know that his progressive legacies continue. And it’s terrible.

Thankfully, two of Obama’s most prized accomplishments, Obamacare and amnesty for illegals, are ending. This is all thanks to President Trump’s policy and regulation changes.

However, Obama still has his way in the federal government, as many employees during the Obama administration have stayed during President Trump’s first year, simply to be a thorn in his side. And that is why many conservatives are calling for President Trump to, in effect, “drain the swamp.”

Now that the worst of Obama’s policies have ended, President Trump is doing exactly what conservatives are asking. He is effectively draining the swamp by forcing two progressive liberals out of their high-profile State Department positions of power. He didn’t even have to officially do it – they left before he got the chance. And Obama is furious.

From Breitbart:

Two of the top ten Obama holdover bureaucrats Breitbart News reported in February President Trump could fire or remove are stepping down from their State Department refugee roles.

Acting Assistant Secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration Simon Henshaw is stepping down from that position, Reuters reported on Saturday.

“In an interview on Saturday evening, Henshaw told Reuters he was leaving his position in a routine professional move unrelated to the Trump administration’s policies, which have curtailed refugee admissions. A State Department spokeswoman also said Henshaw’s move was routine,” Reuters reported.

“On Tuesday, Reuters reported that Lawrence Bartlett, previously the head of the refugee admissions office at the State Department, had been given a temporary re-assignment in the State Department office handling Freedom of Information Act requests,” Reuters noted.

The FOIA office in the State Department is the bureaucratic equivalent of an exile to Siberia for someone with Bartlett’s background, sources tell Breitbart News.

As Breitbart News reported in December, Bartlett had been on a temporary assignment in Puerto Rico.

Henshaw was number 7 on Breitbart’s top ten Obama holdover bureaucrats list, and Bartlett was number 9.

 

This is encouraging news for conservatives. To see two of Obama’s most progressive workers leave their powerful positions is amazing news. They clearly knew that their time was up and that they would soon get canned otherwise.

So here’s to another “drain the swamp” win for President Trump!

WATCH: Trump Kicks CNN’s Jim Acosta Out Of Press Briefing

Jim Acosta, one of the top liberal faces of CNN — the fake news network according to at least half the country — was just humiliated by none other than President Trump himself after asking the President the most asinine, racist question one could possibly ask.

Watching Trump tell this dweeb to get out of the room is the best thing we’ve seen so far this year…

Hannity reports:

President Donald Trump didn’t have time for CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday, telling the left-leaning reporter to “get out” during a press briefing with the President of Kazakhstan.

The President was fielding questions from journalists when Acosta pounced on his recent remarks regarding immigration; asking the Commander-in-Chief if he only prefers “Caucasian” and “white” immigrants from Norway other European nations.

“Mr. President, did you say that you wanted more people to come in from Norway? Is that true?” pressed the CNN reporter.

“I want them to come in from everywhere,” fired back the President.

“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir?” asked Acosta.

“Out,” replied the President, shutting down Acosta and pointing at the door.

The CNN reporter commented on the altercation on social media, saying he had “never encountered” that sort of behavior at the White House.

“As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before,” tweeted the correspondent.

Watch President Trump tell Acosta to “get out” above.

SHARE this all over Facebook and social media if you think it’s hilarious that Acosta got kicked out of a Trump presser!

Donald Takes $1.6B And 4,000 Jobs From Overseas, Gives It To Southern State

President Trump meant it when he said he would restore the economy. And he’s doing in ways nobody thought was possible. His leadership in the White House has reduced waste and taxes. Those are major hurdles to job creation.

Throughout last year, we read about company after company bringing back jobs to the U.S. From local businesses to foreign institutions, it seemed like everyone wants to invest in the U.S.

Hmm, I wonder why? We did see this much action during Obama’s time in office. Jobs were only leaving the country.

Now a huge announcement was made that a company will invest $1.6 billion into the American economy.

From Breitbart:

On Wednesday at an event at the RSA Activity Center, Gov. Kay Ivey (R-AL) made it official when she announced Toyota-Mazda would be building a $1.6 billion factory in northern Alabama’s Limestone County outside of Huntsville.

“Today is indeed a great day in the state of Alabama,” Ivey proclaimed. “As governor, it is my honor and privilege to announce that Mazda and Toyota have chosen Alabama as the home of their new production plant.”

The announcement was met with a stand ovation just blocks from the Alabama State Capitol, where legislators are convening the state’s annual legislative session.

The plant will add 4,000 new jobs with average salaries of $50,000 annually and the plant will have the capacity to produce 300,000 cars annually.

Those jobs mean a lot to our economy. But more than that, the products they produce will be sold around the country and world. The impact of this plant will have repercussions throughout the economy.

You better believe this wouldn’t have happened without Trump’s influence. The reduction in regulation and taxes attracted Toyota.

And guess what will happen next? Other companies will want to invest in the U.S. Companies from around the world will see how Toyota and others are thriving. They will want to get in on the action.

Expect to see more investments announced in the coming months. The winning won’t stop.

Democrat ‘Holy Grail’ Defects, Tells Congress To Build The Wall—Trump Wins Again

There’s a crack appearing in the liberal opposition to President Trump. Now we’re not talking about a thaw in nasty relations, let alone a full-blown rapprochement. And some of the Democrats will have to grit their teeth to cooperate with the president.

But some on the left have appeared to have decided that working with the man on occasion might be a good idea. Or at least a better one than opposing everything, and coming up empty-handed and looking irrelevant like the Democrats did with the tax bill.

So get ready for this one. That bastion of liberal ideology, the Washington Post, has admonished Democrats to support building the border wall. At least in return for some accommodation for the “dreamers.”

President Trump had already expressed a willingness to do this, so it looks like the left might be the ones who will be learning to cooperate. Still, it’s a shock to read such words on the editorial page of the Washington Post.

The Washington Post Editorial Board published a piece Wednesday begging Democrats to accept President Trump’s border wall in return for the protection of “dreamers,” the illegal immigrants currently protected by DACA.

The article, entitled ‘Take a deal for the dreamers. Build the wall,’ argues that while the wall is a ‘dumb idea,’ it would ultimately be a worthwhile trade-off to protect ‘dreamers.’

‘If a few billion dollars annually is the trade-off that provides certainty — a pathway to citizenship or permanent legal status — for nearly 700,000 young immigrants brought to this country as children by their parents, it’s worth it.

Because the alternative — all those lives ruined, all those jobs lost, all that education and promise cut short — is much worse,’ the Editorial Board writes.

Note this is no full-scale endorsement of the border wall. The Post dutifully calls it a “dumb idea.” Yet they can see the writing on the wall: President Trump has made noises about doing something to help the “dreamers” find a way to citizenship.

The last thing the left needs is for President Trump to be able to take credit for accomplishing one of the Democrats’ goals.

To create the impression that this is no capitulation to President Trump, [t]he Editorial Board further notes that increased border security has historically been a bipartisan issue, such as in 2006 when both Senators Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama voted to support 700 miles of fencing on the Mexican border.

Image result for president trump

Maybe the Post as grown tired of losing and watching President Trump frequently win as he promised to do on the campaign trail.

While the Washington Post remains a staunchly liberal publication, its writers and editors are bright people. It’s bad enough for them to have to watch President Trump tear the Obama legacy to shreds and see the president’s tax bill become law.

Allowing him to claim credit for doing something for illegal immigrants is more than they can stand.

So, we see the Post’s strategy. Work with him on the border wall in return for being able to take some credit for providing a pathway to citizenship for the dreamers.

And claim that any compromise the left reaches with him on his border wall can be explained against a backdrop of previous support for fences on the border by Obama and Clinton.

The alternative is to watch him get his border wall anyway while co-opting a vital part of the Democrats’ agenda on immigration.

After all, the left can only lose so often before matters get intolerable. Or, to look at it another way, “If you’re getting run out of town, get to the front and act like you are leading a parade.”

Trump Hits Dick Durbin With Humiliating New Nickname

One could make a reasonably, realistic argument that President Donald Trump won the 2016 nomination for GOP candidacy thanks to his skillful art of coming up with brilliant nicknames for his opponents. “Lyin” Ted, “Low Energy” Bush, “Lil” Marco… the list goes on and on.

Well, he did it again folks. Just as ultra-liberal Illinois Senator Dick Durbin ramped up his anti-Trump attacks and was responsible for starting the “sh**hole controversy that took over the news cycle, POTUS put him down with the power of 1 Tweet that contained a humiliating, yet perfect nickname.

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military,” Trump wrote in a fiery Twitter message aimed at the senator.

Breitbart reported on the original controversy:

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) defended his deputy, Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), on Sunday after critics questioned Durbin’s claim that President Donald Trump had referred to “shithole countries” in a discussion about immigration in the Oval Office on Thursday.
Sen. David Purdue (R-GA), who was at the meeting, told ABC News’ This Week with George Stephanopoulos that Durbin’s account of events was a “gross misrepresentation,” adding that it was “not the first time we’ve had a gross misrepresentation by that individual.”

Purdue elaborated:

The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used, and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive. In 2013, Senator Durbin also made the same accusation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, and said that he chewed out the president, and was so disrepsectful to President Obama we couldn’t even have the meeting. That’s what he said in 2013. Later that day, the president’s own press secretary came out and said, and I quote: “It did not happen.” This is about a gross misrepresentation. It’s not the first time.

Apparently in response, Schumer tweeted: “To impugn @SenatorDurbin’s integrity is disgraceful. Whether you agree with him on the issues or not, he is one of the most honorable members of the Senate.”

Pouting Dems Line Up To Boycott Trump’s State Of The Union Speech

Let’s take a snapshot of America right now: We’re winning the war on ISIS, our administration is making great deals both at home and abroad, the job market is rich, taxes are being lowered and the economy is literally soaring to unprecedented heights.

President Trump said he would Make America Great Again and he’s already on the road to success.

But that’s not good enough for Dems. They’d rather interrupt the prosperity for a chance to spark false rage among their loyal sheep…

Hannity reports:

The list of liberal lawmakers planning on attending President Trump’s highly-anticipated ‘State of the Union’ address is dwindling by the day, with more and more Democratic legislators announcing their plans to boycott the annual speech to both houses of Congress.

According to Fox News, Florida Representative Frederica Wilson is the latest Democrat to publicly protest the President’s address, saying, “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address.”

“I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises and lies,” she added.

Wilson made national headlines last year when she publicly accused President Trump of “disrespecting” the widow of a fallen soldier during a private phone conversation; claiming the Commander-in-Chief didn’t know the slain service member’s name.

Rep. Wilson now joins a growing list of liberal legislators opting to stay home during the President’s address, including Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Earl Blumenauer.

MRC reports:

A growing list of Democrats plan to boycott President Trump’s first State of the Union Address in the wake of his alleged “shithole countries” remark.

So far, House Democrats Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), and Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) have announced that they will skip the Jan. 30 address, Fox News reports.

It is expected that more announcements are yet to come.

“Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC Friday night. “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in? … He doesn’t deserve my attention.”

“The United States of America is represented by the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth,” she went on. “Not only is he racist, he is an embarrassment for this country.”

Lewis in an interview with MSNBC on Friday similarly condemned Trump as a racist. He said that he cannot in “all good conscience” attend the address “with what [Trump] has said about so many Americans.”

“I just cannot do it. I wouldn’t be honest with myself,” he said.

Rep. Wilson announced on Sunday that she doesn’t plan to attend the event, citing Trump’s “racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations.”

Blumenauer was the first to announce that he would be boycotting the address. He announced his decision Jan. 5 on Twitter, saying that he would rather not listen “to another destructive, divisive speech by Trump.”

All four House Democrats skipped President Trump’s inauguration.

Trump defended himself on Sunday, referring to himself as “the least racist person you will ever interview.”

He has denied ever making the derogatory remark but admitted to using “tough” language during a meeting on immigration at the White House last week.

Democrats Defy Donald, Try To Steal Tax Cut Bonuses Away From 2 Million Americans

 

The calendar may have changed to 2018, but it’s still business as usual in Washington, D.C.

Our nation’s economy is booming, and that’s the direct result of the changing of the guard at the top of the political food chain.

President Donald Trump and members of the GOP have slashed taxes, rolled back regulations, and thrown common sense into the equation.

The direct results have been more money for American workers, increased investments from employers, and an overall sense of optimism that we haven’t seen in years.

Despite that, Democrats are insisting that this is all bad news that simply must end before the wheels fall off of the freight train. And Elizabeth Warren is leading the charge.

From Gateway Pundit:

On Thursday Walmart stores announced one million workers will get bonus earnings thanks to the Trump tax cuts.

That means the total number of Americans receiving Trump tax cut bonuses is now over 2,000,000!

Stuart Varney from FOX Business Network reported:

“As of this morning before we got the Walmart announcement, 1,039,000 Americans were going to get a bonus. Now it’s 2,039,000 Americans will get a bonus. Clearly it’s employees and customers who are getting the benefit as well. By the way, before we got the Walmart announcement we had Waste Management chiming in with $2000 bonuses for 34,000 employees.”

It’s pretty tough to spin bonuses and increased wages as a sign of impending doom, but that’s not stopping the liberal mouthpieces from insisting that it is.

But Democrat leader Elizabeth Warren wants to shut it down.

Warren told Bret Baier on Special Report that Democrats want to change all of this.

Elizabeth Warren: We’ve got to change it. You got to take out the parts that are giant giveaways… It’s a trillion dollars that the Republicans gave away to billionaires and giant corporations.

Back on Earth, the story is vastly different.

Yes, the corporate tax rate has been slashed. And corporations have responded by sharing the wealth with American workers.

Yes, the overwhelming majority of Americans have had their taxes reduced. This will result in more money in their wallets and purses, which in turn will further stimulate the surging economy.

How is this a bad thing?

It’s not, but there is a gigantic benefit to those on the Left jumping up and down with their hair on fire as they claim that it is: The absurdity of liberal thinking is on full display for all to see.

It’s perfect timing with mid-term elections right around the corner. After all, how are the Democrats going to make any headway when one of their chief talking points is that more money for all is a bad thing?
