45 Charged with Committing More than $240K in Welfare Fraud in Pennsylvania

The extent of welfare fraud is not just limited to Pennsylvania; it happens all around the country. A 2019 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found that $1 billion in SNAP benefits are trafficked in the U.S. annually. But experts say the real extent of the fraud is uncertain and could surpass that $1 billion figure.

If there was no welfare, then there would be no fraud!

Canadian hospice tells gov’t it’ll forgo $750K in public funds rather than kill sick patients

With government money come strings. (From LifeSiteNews.com) DELTA, British Columbia, January 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A British Columbia palliative care hospice under government orders to provide euthanasia onsite by February 3 has offered to forgo $750,000 in public funds rather than let sick patients be killed by lethal injection in its 10-bed facility.

Remember when Sarah Palin was EXCORIATED (look it up) for calling Obamacare “Death Panels”.

Here’s evidence she was right!

The Gooferment should NOT have the right to kill anyone EVER.

(I can be persuaded that if the criminal is a Hannibal Lecter type who is too dangerous to be contained, then killing the “mad dog” MIGHT be warranted.)

Obsessive Astros Fans Documented Their 2017 Cheating

Tony Adams: My name is Tony Adams. I’m an Astros fan. In November 2019, when the videos of the banging during some Astros 2017 games came out, I was horrified. It was clear within a minute of watching it was true — my team had cheated.

I wonder how many careers were ruined by their cheating.  The fellow cites a pitcher who never pitched again in the major leagues.

Argh!

Ken Starr: Impeachment Violated Due Process and the Constitution

The House impeachment inquiry into President Trump, he said, had been “dripping with fundamental process violations.”The fact that Trump’s rights had been violated went against the first purpose of the Constitution, he said, which was to “establish justice.”“Courts would not allow this,” Starr said.  “They knew, and they know, that the purpose of our founding instrument is to protect our liberties.”

At what point do the “process violations” give DJT45 a “get out of jail free card”?

I don’t see what he did to warrant impeachment. Seems like a partisan witch hunt by the looney left.

That being said, didn’t they failed to observe the “rules of fair play”?

Where was all this “outrage” when HRC was corruptly violating security rules with her email and the Clinton Foundation? (Sorry but if I’d done what she did when I held a clearance, I’d probably still be in the stockade!)

Peter Schiff: Gold Would Explode With A Bernie Sanders Presidency

Via SchiffGold.com, Bernie Sanders has gained in the polls of late and only trails Joe Biden by about three percentage points, according to the latest Fox News poll. On top of that, Sanders matches up against President Trump. He leads 48% to 42% in a head-to-head matchup.

*** begin quote ***

What a Sanders win means is much bigger government deficits, and much more money printing by the Fed because there is no way to finance all of the spending that will happen with tax hikes on the rich. We’ll get tax hikes on the rich, but they’re not going to provide the revenue to pay for the programs.”

*** end quote ***

While I like 2k$+ gold personally, the implications for the USA and the world.  It implies a catastrophic collapse in the global economy.

I’m old and probably will not see all the bad things that will happen with it.

Hopefully, the American electorate will come to their senses by election day.

Vermont Moose Saved After Hoof Stuck on Railroad Tracks

Vermont’s Department of Fish and Wildlife added that such rescues are rare because of the risk to both the animal and the rescue crews in those situations.“Such recoveries are many times not successful,” the department said. “It’s great to see that, in this case, it ended well for those involved and for this very fortunate moose. A great job by all, and a special thanks from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife to those who helped in this effort.”

Good work and good practice.

All life is “sacred” and should be treated with dignity and respect.

While we can’t save everything, we should retain our “humanity”.

My thought, after good for the moose, was could it have been a child or other human stuck there.

Wonder how it can be prevented in the future?
