Maine Makes Welfare Recipients Work for it. Guess What Happens Next…

Published

on

From Louder with Crowder: Welfare is the left’s favorite entitlement. Because if they keep you dependent on the government, you’ll have to vote for them over and over again. It’s brilliant really. In Maine, they tried something different. Sometimes families need help, but if you’re single, able-bodied and want to live on the taxpayer’s dime… they’re going to make you work for it. Uh oh…

The results are…not at all shocking if you have any common sense.

Job openings for lower-skill workers are abundant in Maine, and for those ABAWD recipients who cannot find immediate employment, Maine offers both training and community service slots. But despite vigorous outreach efforts by the government to encourage participation, most childless adult recipients in Maine refused to participate in training or even to perform community service for six hours per week. When ABAWD recipients refused to participate, their food stamp benefits ceased.

In the first three months after Maine’s work policy went into effect, its caseload of able-bodied adults without dependents plummeted by 80 percent, falling from 13,332 recipients in Dec. 2014 to 2,678 in March 2015.

So let me get this straight:

Able-bodied young men (or women) have been receiving a free ride from the government in Maine for a long time now.

Conservatives often bemoan the leftist welfare state.

In turn, leftists state that Conservatives are just mean who want to kick people who are down on their luck and keep all of the monies for all of themselves.

Conservatives respond with the novel concept that they believe people should earn their living, and that many welfare recipients are perfectly capable of doing so.

Leftists respond with  “Nuh-uh. TOP 1%!!!!”

When put directly into practice in Maine, Conservatives are proven to be entirely correct, as able-bodied adults refuse to perform even a minimal amount of work to receive their once-free welfare checks. It’s almost like… these people deserve to be unemployed.

Now compare this whole experiment to Europe where welfare recipients are encouraged to have more sex, and others complain that the welfare isn’t enough. Also, Europe is riddled with rape, crime and financial ruin.

Hmmmmm… maybe Maine is on to something.

Think I’m just a heartless bastard? Tweet me @scrowder and I’ll be sure to laugh at you.

BREAKING: Trump Could Be Removed From Office Without Impeachment – This MUST Be Stopped!

This is War!

Published

on

Since Donald Trump was elected as president, the left has been doing whatever they can to remove him from office. These spiteful liberals cannot accept the fact that Trump is in fact, the president and beat Hillary Clinton, so instead, they will continue to fan the flames of division. The first tactic the left focused on was the bogus Russian collusion story, and as time passed the entire narrative began to blow up in their faces. Every time the left thought they had a piece of so-called “evidence” to tie Trump to the Russians it turned out to be a Clinton operative which has only frustrated the Democrats to no end.

Now, these hateful individuals are focusing on a new tactic to remove President Trump from office, and if we are not careful, they may get their wish.

Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed an influx of sexual assault allegations coming out against politicians on either side of the aisle. Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Alabama Senate, was hit with sexual assault allegations stemming from 40 years ago. Even though the claims were hardly corroborated and the chief accuser conceded that she did lie the damage was already done, and Moore lost to the ultra-liberal Doug Jones last night.

Soon after Moore was accused of sexual impropriety, the #METOO campaign took hold as women logged onto social media recounting their stories of sexual assault at the hands of high powered politicians. Then allegations against Democrat Senator Al Franken and Congressman John Conyers emerged, and the two resigned from office.

Now, you may be asking yourself how does this tie into pressuring President Trump to step down from office? Well, the answer is quite simple. If the left can get enough women to come forward accusing President Trump of sexual assault they can do their best to force him to resign from office.

And, that is the entire purpose of the sudden influx of sexual assault allegations against politicians rearing its head at this time.

Here is more from Great American Politics:

Due to the decaying culture and values of America and Donald Trump’s agenda to restore many of those values, Donald Trump is hated and despised by a large sector of the population. They have been trying to find ways to prevent Trump from taking office and then ways to get him out of office now that he has been inaugurated.

Democrats had put their hopes in the Russian election interference investigations, but so far, that seems to be backfiring on them as there has been more evidence linking the Clinton campaign with the Russians than the Trump campaign.

One House Democrat believed he could lead an effort to impeach President Trump and remove him from office, but that effort was soundly defeated with the majority of Democrats voting to table the resolution.

So, how can they possibly get rid of Trump?

‘Me too’!

Several women tried to prevent Trump from winning the election by making sexual allegations against him, but Trump denied the allegations and believed they were handled since no hard evidence was ever presented.

Now that the ‘me too’ craze is causing several members of Congress to resign suddenly, over a dozen women have banded together to make sexual allegations against Trump and immediately, some Democrats in Congress began calling for Trump to resign.

Trump has responded by saying that the allegations are not true, they’re fake news and he denies all of the allegations.

So, who will Congress believe – Trump or his accusers?

If Trump is guilty, then Democrats need to be reminded how they vehemently defended Bill Clinton and refused to vote him out of office during his impeachment hearing. I’m not condoning the behavior, but right now, Trump is the best thing that could happen to America and we need him in the Oval Office.

Now, no one is saying that politicians that are found guilty of sexual assault should remain in office, but just an allegation should not ruin a man’s career. There is a reason that there are a statue of limitations and if these women were genuinely assaulted by a politician or a person in power, there is no reason that there should not be a paper trail to corroborate it their story of abuse. After years of silence, these women should not be given a platform to destroy someone based on what political office these men are for now, and that goes across the board.

If these are the tactics that the left are going to use to silence their opposition you can bet they will use them harder in 2018 and of course, in 2020 with the next presidential election. Make no mistake folks, this is a war we are in and it is now the time to fight back against these tactics or we can say goodbye to the United States.

Trump Sending Deadly Convoy After What NK’s Sick Dictator Was Just Spotted Doing On 8,300Ft Sacred Mountain

Fat boy isn’t going to like this!

Published

on

Sometimes when people say “we” they mean it symbolically; like when a couple says “we’re pregnant” or when the CEO of a company says “we have designed a better (fill in the blank) usually they aren’t getting their hands dirty, and people know it. There’s general, communal terminology, and then there’s just trying to make yourself look better at someone else’s expense.

In the case of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, it seems to be a combination of the latter and good old-fashioned lying. Jong-un has decided to risk the lives of all 25 million North Korean souls under his care, as well as all the Americans he hopes to take out in the crossfire and pick a fight with the United States. Jong-un’s insistence on continuing his nuclear missile tests, despite every diplomatic strategy to stop him, is a course of action that is likely to end in fatalities for the North Koreans.

President Trump has tried time and again to reach out via diplomacy, but the petty dictator of North Korea continues his standoff, growing more and more aggressive and his propaganda campaign has gotten more and ridiculous as time went on. Daily Mail reports of his most recent exploits and how transparent his lies are. Jong-un, who is not known for his athletic ability, apparently is claiming to have scaled an 8,300-foot mountain, all without so much as breaking a sweat:

“He is the chubby dictator who ‘learnt to drive at the age of three’ and once bragged of scoring 11 holes in one on his first round of golf.

Now North Korean state media has made another dubious claim about Kim Jong-un’s ‘superhuman powers’ after insisting the overweight tyrant had climbed an 8,000ft mountain.

Pyongyang media said the 33-year-old had managed to scale Mount Paektu – a sacred spot for North Koreans – after walking ‘through thick snow’ to reach the summit.

But pictures show Kim wandering around on the snow-capped mountain with hardly a bead of sweat and wearing spotless and shiny shoes.”

While all of this might seem a bit ridiculous to us, it all fits in perfectly with the carefully crafted image that Jong-un attempts to project to the rest of the world. One of the saddest things about Jong-un thinking that he can push this off on the world (I mean other than the possibility that he is planning to sacrifice millions of lives at the altar of his “short man syndrome“) is the fact that no one is able to talk to him and explain how crazy he seems.

He obviously doesn’t understand how sports work, and no one is willing to stand up and tell the emperor that in his own way, he has no clothes. Probably because his “off with their heads” kind of response to criticism has put a damper on the opinions of others. Defectors from North Koreas talk of growing up in a world where they believe that the ruling family can even hear the thoughts of those who would speak against the royal family.

Here’s more from our source about the details of not only Jong-un’s impressive “hike” but his continued efforts to wipe the United States off the map:

“Rodong Sinmun reported how Kim’s ‘eyes reflected the strong beams of the gifted great person seeing in the majestic spirit of Mount Paektu the appearance of a powerful socialist nation which dynamically advances full of vigour without vacillation at any raving dirty wind on the planet.’

Mount Paektu has been decreed as the ‘sacred’ birthplace of the secretive state’s first dictator, Kim’s grandfather.

Pictures released by the regime show Kim in the snow on North Korea’s border with China, which the regime rewrote history to claim was [the] birthplace of Kim Il-Sung, the Communist who ruled from after the Second World War until 1994.

He was in fact born in the Soviet Union, but the mountain, has long been integral to the country’s identity.

It is reputedly the birthplace of the earliest Korean leader ever recorded, Dangun, who according to legend founded the early kingdom of Gojoseon in 2333BC.

The mountain is believed to be the site of the deadliest volcano eruption in history and there are fears it may erupt again as a result of North Korea’s nuclear weapons testing.

A thousand years ago it exploded so violently that ash fell as far away as northern Japan.

Last month Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the Rand Corporation, warned one of the nuclear weapon tests carried out by North Korea could have a catastrophic effect.

North Korea, formally called the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), last week tested its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile, saying the device could reach all of the United States.

Two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers joined large-scale combat drills over South Korea on Thursday amid warnings from North Korea that the exercises and U.S. threats have made the outbreak of war ‘an established fact.’

The annual U.S.-South Korean ‘Vigilant Ace’ exercises feature 230 aircraft, including some of the most advanced U.S. stealth warplanes.

North Korea’s foreign ministry blamed the drills and ‘confrontational warmongering’ by U.S. officials for making war inevitable.

U.S. national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend the possibility of war was ‘increasing every day.’

He said Trump was prepared to take action against North Korea but was working to convince China, Russia and others to do more to press Pyongyang to get it to give up its weapons programs.

U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham urged the Pentagon on Sunday to start moving U.S. military dependants out of South Korea, saying conflict with North Korea was getting close.

The Pentagon said it has ‘no intent’ to move out any dependants.

Joseph Yun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy, will travel to Japan and Thailand next week to meet government officials ‘to discuss ways to strengthen the pressure campaign following the DPRK latest ballistic missile test,’ the State Department.

‘The United States looks forward to continuing its partnership with both these nations so that the DPRK will return to credible talks on denuclearization,’ it added.

But Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he believes the chances of dialogue to resolve the tensions over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program are low.

Lavrov was speaking Friday while attending an OSCE ministerial summit in Vienna.

He said ‘the North Koreans have told us more than once that they need security guarantees, especially in the situation when Washington is trying to withdraw from the agreements on the Iranian nuclear programme’.

Trump Had ENOUGH! Just Signed a 5-Year Ban….This is HUGE!

It’s happening!

Published

on

President Trump has been in office for less than a year, and he is more determined than ever to make sure his agenda to make America great again does not fail. After the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump’s travel ban was indeed constitutional, he is not wasting any more time and pushing through more initiatives to strengthen our country. Over this past weekend, Trump took his presidential pen and signed an executive order to help restore sincerity and honesty in Washington, which has the left screaming foul.

Now, this is how you drain the swamp.

President Trump is making good on his campaign promises, and the left cannot stand it.

First, Trump scored a significant win when the Supreme Court reinstated the travel ban and then shortly after that he officially recognized Jeresulam as the capital of Israel, which had leftists melting like snowflakes in July. As these fragile liberals are still recovering from a massive dose of #MAGA, Trump used that momentum to sign into action another executive order to drain the swamp.

In another effort to keep more of his campaign promises, Trump ended backroom deals and put government employees on notice in his latest executive order.

President Donald Trump fulfilled an essential portion of his pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington, by banning administration officials from ever lobbying the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government and imposing a separate five-year ban on all lobbying activities.

Trump has said individuals who want to aid him in his mission to “Make America Great Again” should focus on the jobs they will be doing to help the American people, and not to be thinking ahead to their future income they could rake in by peddling their influence after serving in the government.

This new ban that Trump signed supersedes the one that Barack Obama signed in 2009, that banned anyone from lobbying the government for a period of two years after leaving the government. Though what makes Trump’s ban better than Obama’s is that the new ban closes up all the “loopholes” that the former ban allowed.

Soon after making that monumental move, Trump went on to sign two more executive orders that show just how serious Trump is about making our country great again.

Here is more from Breitbart:

President Donald J. Trump signed three new executive actions on Saturday afternoon, including a five-year lobbying ban, reorganization of the National Security Council, and a plan to defeat the Islamic State.

Regarding the lobbying ban, Trump said:

So this is a five-year lobbying ban, and this is all of the people — most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work.

It’s a two-year ban now and it’s got full of loopholes and this is a five-year ban. So you have one last chance to get out. Good, I had a feeling you were going to say that.

This was something, the five-year ban, that I have been taking a lot about on the campaign trail.

Ahead of the signing, a senior administration official indicated that the lobbying ban included not only a five-year ban on administration officials but a lifetime ban on administration officials lobbying for a foreign country.

After signing the document to reorganize the National Security Council, the President said, “This is the organization of the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council, you know pretty much what it represents, it represents a lot, and also a lot of efficiency and I think a lot of additional safety. People have been talking about this for a long time, like many years.”

President Trump signed the ISIS plan, after which he said, “This is the plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, in other words, ISIS. I think it’s going to be very successful. That’s big stuff.”

The White House senior administration official also said ahead of the signing that the executive action regarding ISIS would give military leaders 30 days to compile and present a report to the President on a strategy to defeat ISIS.

The President responded to questions about Friday’s executive order on immigration after signing each of the three executive actions, stating, “It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.”

President Trump is doing precisely what the American people sent him to Washington D.C. to do, and that is to bring integrity back to the government. Under the Obama administration, everything was sold off to the highest bidder which did not serve the American people, but only helped fatten the lobbyist’s pocketbooks, and that is about to end.

Thank you, President Trump, for putting the American people first and doing your best to make America great again!
