When Dr. Carson was being confirmed just about every Democrat who spoke publicly about his confirmation made a point to criticize, belittle, and demean him and President Trump for choosing him. However, it wasn't Dr. Carson they should have been worried about, because HUD was already being run poorly by the Democrats chosen leaders. In a recent and wholly shocking report from the Daily Caller we learned that HUD's financial situation had been so totally mismanaged that it was impossible for the Inspector General (IG) to actually figure out what happened to the agency's money.

White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter. read more


One of the subjects touched on is the story of Evelyn Farkas, formerly the Defense Department's top Russia expert under President Obama who is now calling for an independent investigation of the president's ties to Moscow.

The U.S. intelligence official who "unmasked," or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone "very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world," a source told Fox News on Friday.

Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of classified names told Fox News that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., now knows who is responsible -- and that person is not in the FBI. read more

"In a massive scoop, on Monday morning Eli Lake of Bloomberg reported that Barack Obama's national security advisor, Susan Rice, repeatedly requested information from the intelligence community on members of the Trump transition team and campaign, unmasking them to an audience beyond the intelligence community in the process. Normally, raw intelligence masks the identity of American citizens caught up in legal surveillance of other targets. Here's his scoop..."

"In February [National Security Council senior director for intelligence] Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice's multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel's office, who reviewed more of Rice's requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy. The intelligence reports were summaries of monitored conversations -- primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials. One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration."

"And here's another inconvenient fact for Democrats: despite Susan Rice requesting and apparently receiving raw intelligence regarding the Trump team, the Democrats have been unable to substantiate any allegedly nefarious activity between Trump's people and foreign adversaries. Which means that the only scandal here is the apparent targeting and leaking of names from the Trump team in order to smear them by high-ranking Obama officials."

Spin it up, everybody have a great time with it!

"Donald Trump made his confusing remarks about immigration in Sweden at his Florida rally on Saturday"

His remark regarding "last night" may have been confusing but I have no doubt that the situation in Sweden is critical. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to come to that conclusion just knowing what they have been doing. I just read THIS article and am not surprised. I don't know what happened or didn't happen regarding a riot in Stockholm but the link below is probably right on if you have two brain cells to rub together.

"The Swedish economist Tino Sanandaji, who himself has an Iranian-Kurdish background, recently described what's happening in Sweden as 'quite disastrous'. He said: 'This is an irreversible social experiment that no wealthy state has ever attempted. There are almost no ideas or visions over how this can be solved.
'You can't combine open borders with a welfare state. If you offer generous benefits, and anyone can come and use these benefits, a very large number of people will try to do that. It's just mathematically impossible for a small country like Sweden to fund that.'"

"This week, the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven admitted that his country faced a crisis. On Thursday, it reinstated border controls, carrying out identity checks on passengers travelling by train across the strait from Denmark, and those arriving at ferry terminals in the south, to 'maintain public order'.
Concerns are growing over security, amid fears Sweden could pay a terrible price for its indiscriminate welcome of people whose identities and backgrounds have not been adequately checked."
