Donald J. Trump Weekly UpdateTrump announces plans to withdraw from Iran nuclear agreement

President Trump on Tuesday announced plans to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, saying it has failed to halt the country’s nuclear ambitions.

Speaking in the Diplomatic Room of the White House, Trump said: “I am announcing today the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”

He said, “The Iran deal is defective at its core.”

A source said that Trump’s announcement will start a 90-day countdown to the restoration of sanctions.

Once sanctions are re-imposed, the U.S. effectively would be out of the deal.

April was best month in history for U.S. budget, according to CBO figures

The federal government took in a record tax haul in April en route to its biggest-ever monthly budget surplus, the Congressional Budget Office said, as a surging economy left Americans with more money in their paychecks — and this more to pay to Uncle Sam.

All told the government collected $515 billion and spent $297 billion, for a total monthly surplus of $218 billion. That swamped the previous monthly record of $190 billion, set in 2001.

Catholic Charities of Minnesota drops refugee program; will take care of poor and homeless already among us

At least one of the major players in Minnesota’s refugee industry has woken up and smelled the coffee—gobs of federal money is not going to flow to the resettlement of more refugees to Minnesota, especially Somalis, in the foreseeable future.

One of the first questions people ask me when they first hear about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program and the imminent arrival of third world poverty to their home town/city is this:

Why are we doing this when we have so many poor and homeless people right here who need care?

It looks like at least Catholic Charities is getting the message, perhaps from many faithful Catholic parishioners…..

Feds will close 74 refugee offices during the course of this year

We knew this was happening, but this article at The Indypendent has some useful nuggets of information on the internal turmoil involving the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program which began in 1980 as a supposed public-private partnership, but has evolved in to an almost entirely publicly (taxpayer) funded industry.

I’m guessing that the average uninformed reader of this story is scratching his or her head and asking, how can the federal government ask non-profits to close their doors?

It is because the ‘non-profits’ are really fake charities and they can’t survive without the continuous infusion of federal dollars.

 

Commentary/Opinion:

Tucker: Democrats want to impeach Trump, but lie about it

Tucker: The Mueller probe is a hit job on Trump. All liberals care about is power. But they don’t want to scare voters before the midterm election. So they don’t mention impeachment, and instead use unelected bureaucrats with guns to crush the presidency. The worst part is, it’s working.

Time for secrecy around Mueller probe to end?

As Trump’s legal team ponders how to handle a possible Meller subpoena, questions persist about the Russia special counsel’s motives.
