Right Before Midterms, Ben Carson Announces HUGE Win For Trump And Veterans

Published

on

The issue of homeless veterans has been a troubling one from the start. But there is very good news on that front – it’s a huge win for Trump and veterans just before the midterm elections. There is no one out there that loves and respects our military more than President Trump. He has worked with HUD Secretary Ben Carson to tackle the problem of homeless veterans and to reduce the number of them living on the streets.

Carson is now saying that the number of homeless veterans has significantly declined thanks to President Trump’s actions and policies. They are using a combination of finding these vets homes while getting them the counseling and mental health care that they need. The Trump team has personalized their approach to veterans to help them when they come home from combat. IJR has the details:

Homelessness rates for veterans are on the decline and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson claims it is because of the teamwork in the Trump administration.

Veteran homelessness rates drop by 5.3 percent. In 2017, HUD estimated that there were approximately 40,000 homeless veterans. This year, they estimate that number shrunk to 37,000 homeless veterans.

Sec. Carson told Fox News that he believes this decline will continue because of mixed methods approach of finding housing for veterans and ensuring that they receive counseling and mental health resources to prevent the veterans from returning to homelessness.

Watch:

“One percent of our population protects the other 99 percent of us and allows us to live in peace and freedom, so we should be willing to really help them out. Unfortunately, many of them are traumatized and have lots of things going on in their lives so they end up homeless on the streets. What we’ve discovered is that just putting them in a house doesn’t necessarily solve their problem or just giving them wrap around services, clinical services, and things like that don’t work. But when you combine those things together, we’ve had a tremendous impact on reducing the homelessness.”

Sec. Carson explained that he has been able to provide a more holistic solution to solving veteran’s homelessness because of the teamwork within President Donald Trump’s administration.

“This is a wonderful model of intra-agency cooperation and that’s one of the hallmarks of this administration. All the secretaries know each other. We work together. We talk about the problems and use our collective resources and powers to solve them.”

Although government agencies have been working on reducing veteran homelessness from above, Carson explained how important it is to form relationships on the ground with homeless veterans.

“In many cases, you know, you have to establish relationships cause some people are traumatized to the point that they don’t trust anybody. So you know, it may be a matter of going out an establishing a relationship with them, talking to them, getting them to know your name. You know, a sandwich and a hot drink, something like that. After a while, they begin to believe. We have a lot of people who have big hearts who want to help, and we’re finding ways in this administration to allow them to be able to help their fellow Americans.”

Reducing veteran homelessness is clearly a top priority for the Trump administration, and although there is a lot of work to be done, it looks like some of the policies are taking hold and delivering positive results.ess-drops/

Big Actress Considering Giving Her Baby Away To Another Country Save It From TRUMP

Holy CRAP.

This is some PEAK Trump Derangement Syndrome, folks.

I mean… what planet do these nutjobs even LIVE ON?!

Actress Amber Tamblyn of “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” recently revealed that on the night Hillary lost, she went into a panic attack imagining she would have to give her unborn child up for adoption to Canadians or some ridiculous crap.

I’m not even exaggerating here.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the pain that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

I’m sorry… but if things REALLY were so bad, wouldn’t you go away WITH your baby? You’d really just hand your baby over to someone?

This is so freaking INSAAANE.

I mean – WTF?! Did any of you ever consider giving up your children because of Obama? No? Yeah. Didn’t think so.

The Hollywood Reporter has more on this story:

Tamblyn, the final reader of the afternoon, shared an essay about the 2016 Election Night from her upcoming release Era of Ignition. The essay recalled 2016’s presidential election night, which Tamblyn spent with Ferrera and comedian Amy Schumer in New York’s Javits Center while several months pregnant. She and her friends wore matching white pantsuits to signal their support of Clinton, “looking like the cast of some new primetime medical drama,” Tamblyn joked.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the paint that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

At a subway station the following day, Tamblyn read, she began experiencing pain and shortness of breath, which caused her collapse on the stairs. She recalled a “homeless man” saying, “Oh shit, it’s going down!” and offering to cut her umbilical cord with beard scissors if she went into labor. Ultimately, Tamblyn learned she was just having a panic attack.

“’How can I keep her safe?’” Tamblyn recalled asking her doctor on a visit about the attack.

“You can’t, but you can keep her close,” her doctor responded, before suggesting that she listen to a one-minute recording every day to remind her of the tenacity of love. Tamblyn ended her set by playing the recording for the audience: a one-minute record of her baby’s heartbeat.

The 2018 Vulture Fest in Los Angeles, which this year features speakers including the Dirty John cast, Constance Wu, Nick Kroll, Fred Armisen and others, concluded Sunday.

Trump On Brink Of Forcing Migrants To Undergo MAJOR New Screening – Dems WON’T Be Happy!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Reuters

President Donald Trump’s administration is considering giving U.S. troops on the border with Mexico the authority to carry out medical screening of migrants, U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

The proposal, which is still in draft form and is circulating within the administration, would involve the military in screenings for things like illness and injury only if U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency personnel were overwhelmed and unable to do so on their own, the officials said.

The proposal would expand the mission for the Pentagon, which said previously it did not expect its forces to directly interact with migrants.

The Pentagon declined to comment.

U.S. military duties on the border, including stringing up concertina wire and building temporary housing, have been aimed at supporting CBP personnel.

The U.S. officials who spoke to Reuters about the proposal did so on condition of anonymity because Trump has not yet signed off on the idea.

It was unclear if the proposal, if confirmed in the coming days, might prolong the deployment of at least some troops at the border.

The commander of the mission told Reuters last week that the number of troops may have peaked at around 5,800, and he would soon look at whether to begin sending forces home or shifting some to new border positions. [nL2N1XQ0XV]
