Hillary Goes Into Hiding After Republican Presidential Candidate Calls For Her To Be Investigated For Murder

She’s guilty af!

Published

on

Thanks to the incredible journalistic work by Fox TV host Sean Hannity another important player in the political scene is now sounding the alarm and calling for an investigation into the death of Seth Rich.

By now it’s starting to be very clear that Democratic National Committee Staffer’s death was the cause of some foul play. So clear that we can now add the former candidate and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich’s name to the list of those calling for an official investigation into the so-called “Botched Robbery” which ended in the murder of Rich.

Gingrich explained:

“We have this very strange story now of this young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee, who apparently was assassinated at 4 in the morning, having given WikiLeaks something like 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments,”

“Nobody’s investigating that, and what does that tell you about what’s going on? Because it turns out, it wasn’t the Russians. It was this young guy who, I suspect, was disgusted by the corruption of the Democratic National Committee. He’s been killed, and apparently, nothing serious has been done to investigative his murder. So I’d like to see how Robert S. Mueller III is going to define what his assignment is.”

It’s currently being reported that the real source of the Democrat Party email leaks was never the Russians. It was actually the 27-year-old Democrat staffer Seth Rich, who strongly favored the Socialist Bernie Sanders over Crooked Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Primaries. When he learned of the shenanigans and rigging that was taking place against Senator Sanders he managed to get proof of what the DNC was up to. He then went on to report his findings anonymously to the website “Wikileaks.” Jullian Assange has practically confirmed this whole narrative.

What’s even stranger is how the Rich family was calling for an investigation after the official investigation turned up the narrative that it was just a robbery gone wrong. A robbery were no belongings were taken. Not his expensive watch, wallet or even the phone he was using to talk to his girlfriend at the moment of the robbery. Interestingly enough they have now changed their tunes and what no investigation nor mention of the mystery behind Seth’s death. If I didn’t know better I would start to believe they were threatened or something of the sort.

Timeline of the Seth Rich Murder:

June 14, 2016

The Washington Post reported it was “Russian government hackers” who obtained the DNC communications, but West simply asked the obvious question, “On what did the paper base this claim?”

She noted the security expert sources were from CrowdStrike, a private firm working for the DNC, which, she pointed out, had been founded by the Moscow-born Dmitri Alperovitch, a nonresident senior fellow at the globalist Atlantic Council, which has ties to Hillary Clinton.

“It is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so,” West wrote.

She cited a Post report that stated: “That evening, she [DNC executive Amy Dacey] spoke with Michael Sussman, a DNC lawyer who is a partner with Perkins Coie in Washington. Soon after, Sussmann, a former federal prosecutor who handled computer crime cases, called [CrowdStrike president Shawn Henry], whom he has known for many years.”

“The political nature of the DNC’s choice of a politically connected cyber-security firm itself is not surprising; what is five-alarm-shocking, though, is that the FBI has never verified the firm’s ‘Russian hacking’ findings,” she explained.

Sussmann, she pointed out, is a partner with Perkins Coie, the law firm that ferried Obama’s “birth certificate” from Hawaii to Washington.

June 22, 2016

John Ashe dies of injuries from a barbell that crushed his throat. He had been scheduled to report to court shortly after this date, along with Ng Lap Seng, as part of a fraud case alleging payola.

The New York Post explained, according to West, “Seng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration.”

June 27, 2016

Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch meet in a private jet at the Phoenix airport just as the FBI was preparing to decide whether or not to refer charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server.

The two later say their meeting, which was without witnesses, was just a private chat about grandchildren.

July 5, 2016

FBI chief James Comey announces in a news conference that the bureau found Hillary Clinton to have been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information, but there was no case.

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” he claimed.

July 10, 2016

Rich is found with gunshot wounds near his Washington, D.C., residence early in the morning. He died a short time later. Police claim the murder was linked to a robbery attempt, although there was no evidence he was robbed.

July 22, 2016

Just three days before the DNC convention begins, an event long expected to be the coronation of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party presidential nominee, WikiLeaks releases 44,053 emails with thousands of attachments that undermine Clinton’s integrity and trigger the resignation of then-DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

July 23, 2016

Without anything more than claims, allegations and innuendo, reports begin appearing in left-leaning media outlets that members of Trump’s campaign were colluding with the Russian government to affect the outcome of the election.

The claims coincide with the email evidence that the DNC was manipulating the primary to ensure Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders.

July 25, 2016

Wasserman Schultz is booed from the stage at the DNC by party members angered by the party’s collusion with Clinton. She resigns 72 hours later.

Aug. 1, 2016

West points out “From Russia with Money,” from Peter Schweizer is published. It details “Clinton cronyism and corruption” and cites “multiple and profitable connections between Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, John Podesta, and Russia.”

Days later, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks “brings up the recent murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich while discussing the great risks WikiLeaks sources take. WikiLeaks will contribute $20,000 to what grows to more $125,000 in reward money for information leading to arrest of the murderer(s) of Seth Rich,” West explained. A private detective, Rod Wheeler, later confirms no one has tried to get the money.

Aug. 11, 2016

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi states bluntly: “I know for sure that it is the Russians; I said that at the convention two weeks ago. … This is an electronic Watergate. This is an electronic Watergate. … This is a break-in. This is a break-in, and I think we have to recognize what is happening here.”

Aug. 25, 2016

West reports a private briefing for members of Congress by CIA Director John Brennan, who discussed “a significant Russian breach of the Democratic National Committee.” The New York Times reported there were “signs of possible connections to the Trump campaign, the officials said.”

Sept. 5, 2016

The Washington Post says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is looking into efforts by Russia to create dissension in the 2016 presidential election.

Oct. 7, 2016

The U.S. government is quoted as formally accusing Russia of hacking the campaign to interfere with the election. The quote comes from Clapper’s office: “The U.S. Intelligence Community is confident that the Russian government directed the recent compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations.”

Over the next few days, a tape was released by the Washington Post of Trump’s lewd comments, which was followed by a WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta emails.

Then came a now-deleted tweet from Jonathan Rich, Seth Rich’s cousin: “First thing I said when my dad told me [about Seth’s death] was he knew something and he was murdered. The rest of the family thought I was nuts.”

Oct. 17, 2016

In the middle of the email releases, Assange’s Web access is cut off and he accuses a “state party” of involvement. And within 48 hours Clinton claims “17 intelligence agencies … have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyberattacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin.” Trump responds in a debate: “She has no idea whether it is Russia, China or anybody else.”

Oct. 20, 2016

West reports Fred Fleitz of National Review corrects Clinton: “Only two intelligence entities … have weighed in.”

Then comes the lung cancer death in London of Gavin McFadyen, later identified in a Fox News report as Seth Rich’s WikiLeak’s contact. And about the same time, FBI chief James Comey announces the reopening, and shortly later, second closing, of an investigation into Clinton’s email scandal.

Nov. 2, 2016

Jonathan Rich turns to social media again. He asks why “people close to Hillary & Bill Clinton tend to end up dead in weird ways … like my cousin.”

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich reportedly sent 44,053 internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks before he was gunned down in while walking home from a bar in the wee hours of the night on July 10, 2016.
Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich reportedly sent 44,053 internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks before he was gunned down in while walking home from a bar in the wee hours of the night on July 10, 2016.
According to the book “Shattered,” Clinton supporters hold a meeting to dissect her election collapse, concluding, “Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign.”

Dec. 9, 2016

The Washington Post trumpets, West notes, “The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.”

Dec. 14, 2016

WikiLeaks associate Craig Murray confirms to the London Daily Mail he was in Washington in September to get emails from an insider with the Democratic Party who was disgusted “at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.”

The government formally gets into the act with President Obama’s decision to impose sanctions on Russia and expel 35 diplomats based on claims from Crowdstrike that the Russian hacking of the DNC was linked to Russian hacking of the Ukrainian military, which was promptly and widely debunked.

West explains that before this action, “the FBI, to repeat, has not examined the DNC servers to verify Crowdstrike’s findings.”

Jan. 10, 2017

West reports Comey admits it’s better when investigators can look at the original devices, but in this case, it used information from a “private company.”

“Yes, my head hurts, too. But out of this giant headache may emerge some clear truths. In the meantime, it is extremely notable that Twitter talk of suppression of the investigation into or even discussion of whether Seth Rich was a DNC source for WikiLeaks and murdered as a result is coming not only from the MSM, but hard left and Democrat ‘data’ professionals,” West wrote.

May 2017

WND reported a manager of the Washington, D.C., bar where Seth Rich was last spotted hours before he was shot and killed last summer said D.C. police officers never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested any evidence from the bar, including the bar’s surveillance video from that night.

The revelation backs up a claim by a private investigator who worked on the case that D.C. police were told to “stand down” on the investigation.

WND also reported the investigator recently was ordered to “cease and desist” his work on the murder case.

“The police never asked for the surveillance video from that night,” a manager of Lou’s City Bar told WND.

The statements back up a claim by private investigator Rod Wheeler – a retired D.C. police detective who was hired to independently investigate Rich’s murder – that police were told to stand down on Rich’s murder investigation.

Wheeler told FOX 5: “I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said: ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department.”

May 2017

WND also has reported on the eerie similarities between Rich’s death and several deaths of individuals linked to former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton.

Just as in the Rich case, several of the people who died mysterious deaths were shot spontaneously and in public places, sometimes from behind, sometimes by unknown assailants and often just before they were set to release incriminating evidence concerning the Clintons’ activities. In most cases, there were no signs of theft at the crime scenes. And while some of the deaths were ruled suicides, other cases remain a mystery.

As WND reported, Rich was murdered July 10, 2016, near his home in an affluent neighborhood of Washington, D.C. He was shot in the back with a handgun at 4:18 a.m. while on a phone call with his girlfriend, and nothing was taken from him. He was transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 5:57 a.m.

May 22, 2017

WND reported former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile allegedly called police and the family of Seth Rich and demanded to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s death.

“The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,” veteran homicide detective Rod Wheeler told WND. “Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?”

Brazile, who was also a CNN contributor and a Hillary for America donor at the time, was caught providing Clinton with questions that would later be asked of Clinton at a televised CNN town hall. In an interview with Fox News before the election, Brazile denied leaking the questions to Clinton. But in a March 17, 2017, column for Time magazine, she finally admitted doing so, saying it was a “mistake I will forever regret.”

About the same time, “Kim Dotcom,” a Twitter handle for a hacker described as an “entrepreneur, innovator, gamer, artist, Internet freedom fighter & father of 5,” sounded off. He is a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur who founded Megaupload. On May 20, Kim Dotcom tweeted: “I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved.”

WND has reported on the suspicious circumstances of Rich’s death.

Rich had been at Lou’s City Bar a couple of miles from his house until about 1:15 a.m. There, a worker offered him a ride home because he appeared intoxicated. But Rich instead said he was going to Wonderland Ballroom, another bar a few blocks away.

However, there were no witnesses of his whereabouts from the time he left Lou’s until police on patrol heard gunfire and found him wounded in the street.

The London Daily Mail sent researchers to Washington to look into the timeline that night.

The news agency concluded its information “cuts against conspiracy theories that claimed the DNC staffer was assassinated or on his way to an FBI meeting when he was killed.”

But it conceded the crucial period leading up to his death remains “unaccounted for.” It noted the “international speculation and conspiracy theories,” including that Rich gave sensitive DNC documents to WikiLeaks.

The Daily Mail said Rich was at Lou’s City Bar that evening, alone, as he often was.

He had befriended Lou’s bartenders and others, liked to discuss sports and politics, and was described as “a Midwestern kind of guy.”

That night, “something was clearly bothering Rich,” said the report, which said “those who knew him said he had been having problems with his girlfriend – and he seemed to drink more than usual.”

At closing, the Mail said, he was “uncharacteristically unsteady on his feet,” and instead of accepting an offer of a ride home, said he was going to Wonderland.

“Rich left on foot, but it is unclear if he ever ended up going to Wonderland, a crowded weekend bar known for its live music. He was not well-known to the employees there. Staffers who worked that night told the Daily Mail that they did not recall whether they saw him based on his photo,” the report said.

But as even most late-night bars close around 2:30, and the shooting was reported after 4 a.m., that leaves “as much as an hour and a half between the bars and the shooting unaccounted for,” the Mail said.

The damage to Hillary Clinton from the email dump was, even according to left-leaning organizations, was significant.

Even the progressive Politifact concluded the email dump “shredded Clinton’s most oft-recited defense – that she never sent or received information marked classified.”

You would think a real crook would take at least the phone that was out and in plain sight, but I guess the Clintons aren’t that kind of crooks. What’s a $1,000 cell phone when you make $400,000 to speak to your wall street buddies for 30 minutes?

If you don’t want to see the Clintons once again get away with murder, Please share….

BREAKING NEWS Out of San Francisco…THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!

Published

on

Americans are still left in shock following the non-guilty verdict for the illegal alien who shot Kate Steinle in the back of the head in 2015. Her murder launched a national debate on immigration policy in this country, and for the past two years, we had hoped and waited for justice to finally be served, only to realize we live a world where illegals can now shoot Americans in broad daylight and get away with it. As liberals continue to rejoice over their murdering scumbag walking free, they’re twisting the knife even further into our backs with the sickening gift they’re now bestowing on any illegal who lives in San Francisco.

Ever since Trump got in office, liberal mayor and governors across the country have refused to comply with federal law, as they continue to give Trump the middle finger while harboring these dangerous illegals. Following the murder of Kate Steinle at the hands of the very same man the city of San Francisco illegally harbored for years, you would think that liberals would change their dangerous policies, but that’s outrageously, not the case.  To add even more insult to injury, not only is the city of San Francisco vowing to keep protecting illegals, but they’re now demanding that Americans pay for the health care of their illegal invaders.

Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, presents the Assembly’s budget proposal in his office at the state Capitol in Sacramento, California on Wednesday

The Daily Mail reports:

California, flush with cash from an expanding economy, would eventually spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to immigrants living in the state illegally under a proposal.

The proposal, announced on Wednesday by Democratic lawmakers, would eliminate legal residency requirements in California’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal, as the state has already done for young people up to age 19.

It’s part of $4.3 billion in new spending proposed by Assemblyman Phil Ting, a San Francisco Democrat who leads the budget committee.

Assembly Democrats also want to expand a tax credit for the working poor, boost preschool and child care, and increase college scholarships to reduce reliance on student loans.

They also would commit $3.2 billion more than required to state budget reserves.

These people are out of their freaking minds. Not only are illegals protected from deportation in San Francisco, but now they’ll soon be lining up to get a nice hefty dose of government handouts as well. Hopefully President Trump will end the insanity that’s going on in our country, as he’s now sending his DOJ after liberals who keep defying federal law by harboring these invaders in our country. Following the non-guilty verdict of Kate’s killer several weeks ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions
put sanctuary cities across America on notice, insinuating that heads are about to roll for any other city that continues to harbor illegals and defy federal law. Sessions stated:

“When jurisdictions choose to return criminal aliens to the streets rather than turning them over to federal immigration authorities, they put the public’s safety at risk. San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle,” he said. “While the State of California sought a murder charge for the man who caused Ms. Steinle’s death—a man who would not have been on the streets of San Francisco if the city simply honored an ICE detainer—the people ultimately convicted him of felon in possession of a firearm.”

Sessions then said that Trump and the DOJ are not playing games at this point, and “will continue to ensure that all jurisdictions place the safety and security of their communities above the convenience of criminal aliens.”

“The Department of Justice will continue to ensure that all jurisdictions place the safety and security of their communities above the convenience of criminal aliens,” Sessions said. “I urge the leaders of the nation’s communities to reflect on the outcome of this case and consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement officers.”

This is absolute lunacy. How many more Americans have to be raped and murdered before the nauseating love fest between liberals and illegals ends?

BREAKING NEWS From John McCain’s Deathbed – THIS IS VERY SCARY!

Published

on

Breaking news out of the John McCain corner of the world stifles his supporters. His health is going in a downward direction, much like his support for the Republican party appeared to descend ages ago.  Doctors diagnosed John McCain with Glioblastoma, which is a very aggressive form of cancer that targets the human brain and has less than a 5% chance of survival rate for people his age.  Reports suggest that McCain appears like he is in terrible condition due to the results of his cancer treatment.

The latest reports suggest McCain, 81, looks exceptionally frail, suffers from fatigue, and that’s a common side effect of his cancer treatments. He’s about five months into the procedure that stems from a blood clot he had surgically removed, which was initially associated with a tumor. The original procedure to remove the blood clot is what ultimately allowed doctors to identify his brain cancer. Now his treatments are providing his body with an incredibly downtrodden condition.

McCain’s days are numbered and he knows it. He’s 81-years-old and on his last leg of a long chapter in his career in politics. He should’ve been forced to retire when he was 65, but that’s a massive problem with the government that allows ancient people to continue pushing their politics when they’re well beyond their workable prime.

The Hill reports:

“Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C., for side effects related to his cancer therapy, his office announced Wednesday.

“As ever, he remains grateful to his physicians for their excellent care, and his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes. Senator McCain looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible,” McCain’s staff said in a statement.”

As long as McCain stops by to make some votes for the GOP, then sure – come on back! Otherwise, what’s the point? He’s 81-years-old and diagnosed with cancer, so he should enjoy the rest of his life doing things that are more fun than mucking around with government. Wouldn’t it be more fun to do something enjoyable that doesn’t involve irritating the people you’re supposed to be representing?

ABC News reports:

“He’s receiving treatment for the side effects of the therapy. I feel pretty good about the way the treatment is affecting his underlying cancer. But the treatment has a downside. So he’s tryin’ to get rested up,” Graham said. 

Graham said he’s been in touch with McCain’s wife, Cindy McCain, and is expecting to set up a time to speak with his colleague by phone.

“He’s had a heck of a Senate schedule, and I hope he’ll take some time to regroup, do a little rehabilitation on his leg and come back,” Graham said.

Sen. Jeff Flake, the junior senator from Arizona, told ABC News today that he was also texting with McCain’s wife last night and that he expects his colleague to be back at work soon.”

It’s unfortunate that someone goes through this terrible struggle with disease and people support McCain through his struggles. However, McCain has made a lot of enemies over the years with his seemingly tough struggles and inability to fully support the GOP. McCain has often been referred to as a “Republican In Name Only” or better known as the RINO.

When people do things in government that we disagree with, but then later become affected by a possibly uncurable disease, then it’s human nature to have some compassion for those suffering. However, John McCain has made quite a few enemies over the last few years, and it’s apparent that he will warrant many negatively charged comments from readers on social media and that’s entirely expected.

If John McCain wants to leave behind a fantastic legacy, then he should step in and do something that benefits the GOP, and all right-wing aligned Americans. The time is now for McCain to prove he’s on the GOP team and not just some Democrat hiding behind the GOP name. Is he really on our side or is he destined to be one of those who claims to be, but then turns their back upon us when the time comes for a vote?

What will John McCain do next? How long will he survive?

BREAKING News About Melania – America Stands By Her!

Published

on

By now we have all witnessed the awful things the liberal mainstream left-wing media, celebrities, and bleeding heart liberals have said and written about our First Lady Melania Trump since candidate Donald Trump announced his bid for the presidency back in 2015. But throughout the first year of the Trump presidency, Melania has shown the world who she really is and the class she possesses.

Earlier this week Mrs. Trump had a very special engagement to attend to. The First Lady took time off from her hectic schedule to visit Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington for a Toys for Tots charity event organized by the US Marine Corps. Reserve. And as always, she shined, arriving at the event looking very stylish for the Winter season in an emerald-green coat paired with beige pants and nude high-heeled boots.

First Lady Melania Trump went on to address the children and their families just before joining in to sort gifts with them. She thanked McMillian, on behalf of herself and her husband, President Donald Trump, for the men and women serving in the military and keeping our great nation safe.

What a far cry from the days of Michelle Obama telling our children what they can and can’t eat while she herself would indulge on the finest foods life has to offer.

The Washington Free Beacon Reports:

Feds to Fine Schools for Not Following Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules

Proposed reg would punish schools for ‘egregious or persistent disregard’ for sodium limits

Following publication of this story, a USDA spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon that the goal of the new proposals are meant to ensure high standards in its Child Nutrition Programs.

“To ensure that entities implementing these critical programs continue to meet high standards of program effectiveness and integrity, USDA is proposing a series of program improvements that address only those programs with systemic and significant program violations, such as theft of funds and financial mismanagement, to safeguard the integrity of Child Nutrition Programs and taxpayer dollars,” the spokesperson said.

The federal government is taking steps to fine schools that do not comply with first lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a proposed rule Monday to codify parts of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by Mrs. Obama.

The regulation would punish schools and state departments with fines for “egregious or persistent disregard” for the lunch rules that imposed sodium and calorie limits and banned white grains.

A West Virginia preschool teacher was threatened with fines for violating the rules by rewarding her students with candy for good behavior in June 2015. The teacher ultimately did not have to pay, but the school had to develop a “corrective action plan” with training on the policies.

The government now seeks to make fines enforceable by regulation. Section 303 of the law requires that the federal government “establish criteria for the imposition of fines” for all the Department of Agriculture’s child food programs.

“Under section 303, the Secretary or a State agency may establish an assessment against any school food authority or school administering the Child Nutrition Programs if the Secretary or the State agency determines that the school or school food authority failed to correct severe mismanagement of any program, failed to correct repeated violations of program requirements, or disregarded a requirement of which they have been informed,” the proposed rule states.

The government insisted that fines would be limited only to schools, school food authorities, and state agencies that have “failed to correct severe mismanagement of any program, disregarded a requirement of which it has been informed, or failed to correct repeated violations of program requirements.”

“It is important to note that the statutory scheme only anticipates assessments be established in instances of severe mismanagement of a program, disregard of a program requirement of which the program operator had been informed, or failure to correct repeated violations [emphasis in original],” according to the proposed regulation. “These criteria suggest that violations that would result in assessments would be egregious or persistent in nature, remaining unresolved after the normal monitoring and oversight activities have failed to secure corrective action.”

The Food and Nutrition Service is targeting schools that refuse to comply with Mrs. Obama’s lunch rules and said monetary penalties are a “useful tool” to get noncompliant cafeterias in line.

“However, there have been cases, albeit few, where program operators have failed to correct Program violations through the normal administrative review requirements and technical assistance,” the agency said. “This proposed rule would provide both the Department and State agencies the authority to establish an assessment after the normal monitoring and oversight activities have been unsuccessful in correcting program violations.”

“The Department anticipates assessments would be established only on rare occasions in securing corrective action,” they added. “However, it should serve as a useful tool when egregious or persistent disregard of Program requirements occurs.”

The fines would be the latest consequence of the healthy eating law that Mrs. Obama lobbied for in 2010. More than 1.4 million students have left the lunch line since the rules went into effect, as students have complained of small portions and unappetizing fare. The standards have been blamed for cafeteria workers losing their jobs, and some kids have even resorted to creating black markets for salt to add flavor.

Calling the fines an “assessment” against a school, the agency said the fines would amount to 1 percent of the total amount the school was reimbursed for lunches for the first fine. A second fine would equal up to 5 percent of the total meal reimbursements, and 10 percent for a third or subsequent fine.

The fines could be hefty if an entire state agency were flagged for persistent violations. For instance, Alabama received $210,937,195 in cash payments through the school lunch program in 2015. One percent would total $2.1 million. A 10 percent fine would cost $21 million.

The Food and Nutrition Service did not respond to a request for comment on the proposed rule, or how much the estimated fines would total.

The agency said in the proposed regulation that the fines are “intended to improve the integrity.”

The proposed rule would also apply to private organizations participating in federal childcare nutrition programs, including “institutions, sites, sponsors, day care centers, and day care providers.”

The agency said they would allow schools to appeal the fines “given the fiscal consequences of this provision.” The rule would also give the agency the authority to terminate any school’s participation in the National School Lunch Program if they do not pay the fines.

Increased monitoring of state agencies as a result of the rule would cost states $4.3 million in 2017, and $22.7 million over five years.

In our nation’s history we have never had a first lady with so much class, poise, and as educated at Melania Trump. She is an immigrant who embodies everything an immigrant should be. She keeps her values and culture but is not afraid to call herself an American. That’s how it should be, she came to our great country and never looked back.

Please share if you are proud of our First Lady….
