America’s Welfare Generation: Over Half of Kids Lived in Welfare Homes in 2017

In this nation of plenty, Obama enlarged the welfare roles instead of the job rolls.

Thanks to how Barack Obama bloated the welfare state during his disastrous eight years in office, 2017 gave us the “welfare generation” as over half of America’s children lived in homes where at least one adult was getting government assistance.

The numbers come from the Census Bureau that tallied the numbers for children 18 years and younger.

According to CNSNews:

51.7 percent lived in households in which one or more persons received benefits from a means-tested government program.

While the numbers were down a tad from 2016 (when 52.1 were on welfare), CNSNews also noted that these statistics were before the soaring Trump economy began to kick in.

But the 2017 numbers are apiece of the terrible numbers during the Obama years:

But in each of the last five years on record (2013 through 2017), according to the Census Bureau, at least 51 percent of Americans under 18 have lived in households receiving means-tested government assistance.

According to the report, “In 2017, the Census Bureau estimates that there were approximately 322,549,000 people living in the United States. Of these, 114,637,000—or 35.5 percent—lived in a household that received means-tested government assistance.”

This compares to 2016:

In 2016, according to the Census estimate, there were 73,586,000 people under 18 in the United States (compared to 73,356,000 in 2017) and 38,365,000 (compared to 37,908,000 in 2017) were living in households receiving means-tested government assistance.

The percentage of persons under 18 living in households receiving means-tested government assistance also varied by the type of household the person was living in, according to the Census data.

But it was above 40 percent even in married-couple families.

In this nation of plenty, Obama enlarged the welfare roles instead of the job rolls.

It will be very interesting to see the 2018 numbers after the Trump administration has had time to make a dent in the numbers.

Democratic Senator Says We’re Headed Toward INDICTMENT of POTUS!

It may all come down to whether or not Mueller is looking to play by the rules or not.

Robert Mueller

There have certainly been a number of firsts within this still-young Trump administration.

It may or may not be the first time that we’ve served McDonald’s to a championship team.

And it is certainly the first time that a sitting President might be indicted.  At least according to one Senator from Rhode Island.

Never in thee history of our great nation has something like this been considered, and many on the left are clamoring for it.

Unfortunately for them, there is a longstanding belief in the Department of Justice that a sitting President cannot be indicted, however, he would be eligible to face the music once he leaves office.

According to Rudy Giuliani:

“The Justice Department memos going back to before Nixon say that you cannot indict a sitting president, you have to impeach him. Now there was a little time in which there was some dispute about that, but they acknowledged to us orally that they understand that they can’t violate the Justice Department rules.

“We think it’s bigger than that. We think it’s a constitutional rule, but I don’t think you’re ever going to confront that because nobody’s ever going to indict a sitting president. So, what does that leave them with? That leaves them with writing a report.”

But does that mean that Mueller would play by the rules?

I suppose the only way to find out is to see this out to its inevitable end, whether that be calm, collusion, or calamity.

RED-HANDED! Google’s Anti-Conservative Bias Revealed with SMOKING GUN

Google thought they were too big to get caught. They thought wrong.

Published

Google

For months, it has been readily apparent that Google, YouTube, and other mainstream media platforms were actively working to suppress the conservative beliefs of America.

This seemingly newfound animosity toward the right side of the aisle came only from the left’s intense hatred for President Donald Trump.  For what reason?  Seemingly because he was victorious over Hillary Clinton in November 2016, and for few other reasons at all.

With companies such as Google and YouTube, (Google’s video streaming platform), being novel in their gargantuan size, there are no set rules about just how these very public platforms can operate only as private entities, with no regard to Americans’ Constitutional right to free speech.

Now, however, we finally have something resembling a smoking gun in the case.

In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”

The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.

The existence of the blacklist was revealed in an internal Google discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News by a source inside the company who wishes to remain anonymous. A partial list of blacklisted terms was also leaked to Breitbart by another Google source.

President Trump has hinted in the past about taking a look at regulations regarding free speech on the internet.  Perhaps this will be the impetus to real action.
