Trump Cuts More U.S. Debt For A Longer Period Of Time Than Any President In History – Gateway Pundit

President Trump now can claim the longest and largest decrease of U.S. Federal Debt in U.S. history.

When President Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017 the amount of U.S. Federal Debt owed both externally and internally was over $19 Trillion at $19,947,304,555,212. As of August 17th the amount of U.S. Debt had decreased by more than $100 Billion to $19,845,188,460,167.

No President in U.S. history has ever cut the amount of U.S. Debt by this amount and no President has resided over a debt cut like this ever.

History buffs may say that this is incorrect because President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush oversaw U.S. Debt cuts over a period of a few years after the Republican Congress led by House Speaker Newt Gingrich forced Clinton into signing a balanced budget. We thought the same, but our analysis determined that this is actually not correct.

Congress did push Clinton into signing a balanced budget but the amount of U.S. debt during this period actually increased…

.

.
Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan said his office has concluded an investigation into the invoices and billing practices of Dr. Jonathan Gruber, an economic consultant who contracted with the state to provide policy expertise, research and economic modeling for Vermont’s abandoned single-payer healthcare system.

Former Gov. Peter Shumlin sought to create the single-payer system, known as Green Mountain Care, but eventually walked away from the plan after determining it would cost too much. The attorney general’s office’s began the investigation into Gruber’s billing after receiving a referral by State Auditor Doug Hoffer.

Donovan said Thursday his office and Gruber reached an agreement to settle the state’s potential legal claim that Gruber submitted false claims to the state under Vermont’s Civil False Claims Act…

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz: Russia Investigation ‘Endangers Democracy’ – The Hill

Attorney Alan Dershowitz says special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia “endangers Democracy.”

“The idea of trying to create crimes just because we disagree with [Trump] politically, and target him, really endangers democracy. [It] reminds me of what the head of the KGB said to Stalin: ‘Show me the man, and I will find you the crime,'” Dershowitz told John Catsimatidis on New York’s AM 970 in an interview that aired on Sunday.

“[This is] where things happen in darkness and secrecy. The American public doesn’t learn about it,” he said, accusing the investigators of not sharing information with the public. “This exactly the wrong way to approach the problem of Russia’s attempt to influence American election. We do not know what is going on. We get leaks, but the leaks are selective leaks.”

The Harvard law scholar, who is an opinion contributor to The Hill, also criticized former FBI Director James Comey, whom he called one of the “worst offenders” of leaks that have encouraged other members of government to leak classified information…

Bannon Thinking About Starting His Own TV News Network – Axios
.

.
Unshaven and working from home in cargo shorts as he moves into “Bannon the Barbarian” mode, Steve Bannon is thinking bigger than Breitbart. Axios’ Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he’s going to start a network.

Bannon’s friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only.

Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power.

Now he has the means, motive and opportunity…

Antifa Terrorist Stabs Innocent Man Because Of His Haircut – Daily Mail

A Colorado man says he was slashed after an anti-fascist mistakenly identified him as a neo-Nazi, because of his haircut.

Joshua Witt, 26, took to his Facebook page to post about the frightening incident in Sheridan, and says he’s luck to be alive.

He says he has no tattoos or anything else that would indicate he’s a neo-Nazi, but says his friends have explained, it’s his haircut.

Witt’s cut is similar to what people have identified as the neo-Nazi cut after countless images have flashed on TV and online from the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia protests. His cut is long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides.

Witt wrote ‘Sooooooo apparently I look like a neo-nazi and got stabbed for it, luckily I put my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand.’

The assailant, Witt says, was looking to do much more damage…

Russia Bans Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible As Extremist Literature – Daily Caller
.

Russian courts banned the Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible as extremist literature Thursday, after deeming it not a bible.

The Vyborg City Court banned the New World Translation of the Bible after an expert study from Moscow’s Center for Sociocultural Expert Studies (CSES) deemed that it was not a bible. The ruling, which ended months of litigation suspended since July 26, contradicted Russia’s Federal Law on Extremism, signed by Vladimir Putin in 2015 that prohibits the Bible from being labeled extremist literature.

The CSES experts did not have any religious studies degrees, nor were they familiar with Jehovah’s Witnesses literature, according to Dr. Roman Lunkin, head of the Center for Religion and Society Studies at the Institute of Europe, Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow…

Court Says Arkansas Can Block Medicaid Funding For Planned Parenthood – The Federalist

On Wednesday, Arkansas became one of only a handful of states to block Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood, despite several years of whistleblower video evidence depicting the nation’s largest abortion provider violating federal law and trafficking in human body parts.

Politico reports “The ruling Wednesday by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals vacates preliminary injunctions from a federal judge that required the state to continue Medicaid payments following legal challenges brought by three patients challenging Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s 2015 decision to end the state’s Medicaid contract with the women’s health group.”

Although approximately 15 states have recently attempted to defund Planned Parenthood, few have succeeded. Alabama and Missouri ended their Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood, and Ohio and Wisconsin restricted how Medicaid could fund the organization.

Many states moved to defund the Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) unveiled a series of videos which revealed the abortion provider was illegally selling parts of aborted babies…

“Colossal Fraud”: Lawsuit Accuses Poland Spring Of Selling Groundwater – Zero Hedge

Ever wonder if that bottled mineral water you just spent several dollars on is really mineral water? According to a bombshell new lawsuit filed this week, at least in the case of one company it isn’t.

A group of bottled water drinkers has brought a class action lawsuit against Nestle, the company which owns Poland Spring, alleging that the Maine business has long deceived consumers by mislabeling common groundwater. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in a Connecticut federal court and accuses Nestle Waters North America Inc. of a “colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers” the Bangor Daily News reports.

The plaintiffs claim that falsely labeling its “groundwater” product as pure spring water allowed Nestle to sell Poland Spring water at a premium; as a result the consumers who brought the legal action are seeking at least $5 million in monetary damages for a national class and several state subclasses…

Trump DOJ Ends Obama Regime’s Operation Choke Point – Daily Signal

Republican House members announced Friday that the Justice Department has ended the controversial Obama-era program targeting payday lenders, gun shops, and other legal businesses, in response to several House Republicans who requested Operation Choke Point be shut down.

“We share your view that law-abiding businesses should not be targeted simply for operating in an industry that a particular administration might disfavor,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote the GOP lawmakers in a letter dated Aug. 16.

The letter continued, saying the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation “subsequently rescinded its list of purportedly ‘high risk’ merchants. The Department of Justice (Department) strongly agrees with that withdrawal. All of the Department’s bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Choke Point are now over, the initiative is no longer in effect and it will not be undertaken again.”

Obamacare Enrollment Program Signed Up A Fraction Of Those Who Canceled Coverage In 2017 – Washington Free Beacon

The Affordable Care Act Enrollment Assistance Program helped 14,500 individuals enroll in the Obamacare exchanges, which represented only 0.007 percent of the 1.9 million individuals who decided to drop their Obamacare plan in 2017.

The Obama administration established the Enrollment Assistance Program, which created storefronts and hired workers to help customers enroll in the Obamacare exchanges and obtain coverage.

The government spent $22.4 million on the program and created contracts with two companies, Cognosante and CSRA, to implement their mission. The Trump administration decided to stop the program this year by not renewing the contracts.

The program was able to enroll 14,500 individuals in the Obamacare exchanges during the 2017 open enrollment period. This means the administration paid about $1,545 for each person the program helped sign up…

Home Depot Employee Thwarts Kidnapping, Gets Fired For His Efforts – TellMeNow

Dillon Reagan helped prevent a kidnapping at the Home Depot store where he worked for four years. Some might consider him to be a hero, but Home Depot didn’t. They fired the 32-year-old.

A co-worker yelled for help because there was a violent dispute in the parking lot. Dillan called 911 and headed out to the parking lot.

A woman outside the Portland, Oregon store was yelling, “Somebody help me, please! He’s stealing my kid, he’s kidnapping my child!”

The 911 dispatcher asked him to follow the man who had taken the child. Three blocks later, police arrived and arrested the suspect the Home Depot employee was following. And that’s why he was fired.

Apparently, Dillon had an argument with a co-worker in the same month. Home Depot somehow viewed saving a customer’s child as an infraction as well.

After the local news started covering the story, Home Depot did an about-face and offered to rehire Dillon…

3 Knife-Wielding Terrorists Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ Stab At Least 6 People In Finland – Daily Mirror

Armed police have opened fire on knife-wielding attacker who witnesses claim was ‘screaming Allahu Akbar’ as they went on a rampage ‘randomly stabbing people’ in Finland.

Two people have died in what people initially believed to be a terror-related incident – although police say it’s too early to be certain and said this evening it is NOT currently being investigated as such.

Police earlier said “several people have been knifed” in the centre of Turku this afternoon – including ‘a woman and a baby’ in a pushchair, according to local media.

Early confused reports suggested there may have been as many as three attackers – police would only say tonight that they were looking into whether more people were involved. Armed police shot the attacker in the leg before detaining him around 20 minutes after the alarm was raised.

Video footage earlier emerged of police arresting a man on the ground near a pool of blood – who bystanders tried to fend off with a baseball bat – who is among those being treated in hospital…

Canadian Elementary School’s “Inclusiveness Training” Needs 15-Letter Acronym To Cover Everyone – I Have The Truth

LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP. No, I didn’t fall asleep on my keyboard. Our liberal friends to the north, led by the epitome of radical progressiveness, Justin Trudeau, are moving more and more to the left. And now, they are bringing it to their elementary schools. These 15 letters encompass what children in Canada will be taught in the name of tolerance.

Elementary students haven’t even hit puberty yet and for some reason the left is bound and determined to make sure they understand all of their options when it comes to sexual behaviors. It is sick and disgusting and has no place in school. Every one of those letters stands for a group of people defined solely by their sexual behaviors or identity. How is this appropriate for elementary kids?

This right here is a great case for charter and private school options that give parents the right to choose a school that more closely aligns with their beliefs and educational priorities. Unfortunately, for many, there is no choice to be made…

Trump Shuts Down Obama-Era Central American Minor Protection Program – Fox News

The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program – this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States.

The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which oversaw the project, 1,465 minors have been granted entry under the parole program. Another 2,714 people had been conditionally approved to enter the U.S. but have now lost the opportunity.

The program’s future seemed to be in jeopardy in February when the Department of Homeland Security froze it…
