President Trump Seizes Obama Slush Fund, Gives Millions Back To Taxpayers

Published

on

Since President Trump has been in office, he’s scuttled a number of Obama slush funds, saving us millions in doing so. Every time he does something like this, a little more of the corruption that was so rampant under Obama is wiped away. Obama hid things like this all over the place. People and entities were making money in a myriad of ways that straddled the legal boundaries by doing so. So, every time President Trump trips across one of these caches of ill-gotten gains, he does all he can to return the money to the taxpayers. I don’t know about you, but I love that.

The Trump administration announced yesterday that it was ending what looks to be an illegal Obama-era rule allowing unions to collect dues from state subsidies intended for home health workers, including family caregivers. It’s another slush fund and millions are being given back to hard working Americans thanks to President Trump. Federal law prohibits states from skimming money from Medicaid payments bound for independent in-home personal care workers. But Obama changed that in 2014. He created an exception, saying that states could divert some Medicaid money to unions. The corrupted theory was that these workers effectively were public-sector employees. This is how Obama twisted the law to serve his purposes and enrich his cronies.

Eleven blue states utilized the provision to raise more than $200 million a year for unions by taking it from health workers who often didn’t even realize it, according to top GOP officials. That’s called theft in my book. I’d be furious over it. Included in the list of states are California, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Illinois. Illinois is now at the heart of SCOTUS rulings that strip power from organized labor. Republicans are pointing out that the Obama administration exception violates the federal Social Security Act, as well as the rights of home health workers. It certainly does. No doubt about it. Just when you think unions can’t get anymore corrupt, they outdo themselves with the help of Obama.

Thanks to President Trump, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have begun the formal process of proposing a new rule to roll back the Obama regulation. “The law provides that Medicaid providers must be paid directly and cannot have part of their payments diverted to third parties outside of a few very specific exceptions,” Tim Hill, who is the acting director of the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services, said in a statement. “This proposed rule is intended to ensure that providers receive their complete payment, and any circumstances in which a state does divert part of a provider’s payment must be clearly allowed under the law.”

GOP Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, stated that, “Union dues skimming diverts Medicaid funds from the very people that the program is supposed to help.” Exactly. This is a rule that Republicans have fought against and tried to get rid of for a long time. It is unethical and illegal. In a statement, Johnson said that he would continue to monitor Medicaid funding, “I applaud the Trump Administration for taking the first steps to rein in this abuse. My committee will continue to conduct oversight of CMS’s stewardship of Medicaid funds so that American taxpayers can have confidence the funds flow to those in need.”

In 2014, a Supreme Court ruling stated that home health workers couldn’t constitutionally be required to pay union agency fees because they were not public-sector workers. However, dues skimming by the unions continued unmolested under Barack Obama’s protection of the unions. Now, the unions’ illegal skimming is being shut down by Trump. Last month, the Supreme Court dealt another tough blow to organized labor in Janus v. AFSCME, which held that nonunion public workers could not be forced to pay agency fees to public-sector unions, either. Bummer for the communist unions.

Fox News stated: “It had long been illegal for unions to force non-members to pay for their explicitly political activity, but the Supreme Court’s ruling extended that prohibition to the payment of the agency fees, saying even those expenditures amounted to unconstitutionally coerced participation in the political activity of collective bargaining.”

SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, is not happy over this. They called Trump’s action over this a “broad, coordinated attack against working people,” and said it would hurt minorities. No, it won’t. It takes ill-gotten monies back from the unions and gives it to those that earned the money. “The proposed CMS rule, combined with the Janus ruling, are two more efforts by the Trump Administration and billionaire-funded special interest groups to silence a workforce comprised of 90 percent women, most of whom are women of color, and to reduce the power of working people by making it more difficult for them to join together in a union to fight to ensure that our loved ones can get the care they need to live at home with dignity,” read a statement by Melody Benjamin, who SEIU said is a home care worker. That’s sheer propaganda.

President Trump is not only cleaning out the swamp, he’s cleaning up Obama’s corrupt mess he left behind. This is yet one more instance of that. The unions may kick and scream, but their days of stealing from workers instead of protecting them are just about over.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
