White House asserts executive privilege in census fight

HWH Comment: Personally, I think it’s ludicrous to take a census and not be able to determine how many people living in the USA are not citizens or how many are on work visas or any other type of visa.

It’s shocking that the democrats talk about wanting to preserve the integrity of the census by essentially allowing people to lie, by not putting the citizen question on the census form. People who are not in the USA legally won’t participate whether the question is asked or not. However, if a household claims only two people on the census, then when applying for benefits, that number jumps to six, then that’s a red flag that needs to be addressed.

Why is it that nobody can lie to any government agency under threats of penalty, except those living here illegally? They are the only ones allowed to remain silent about their status.

Transparency is what this country needs, not hiding those living here illegally by not asking the appropriate and necessary questions about their citizenship status. It’s time the USA got a grip on the millions of people living here illegally, while collecting benefits under the guise of being legal.

It doesn’t matter what the census was originally designed to do. Guess what? The world changed, and now the census-taking has to change with it. The issue now is making sure every individual living in the USA is accounted for.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has asserted executive privilege over documents that were subpoenaed by Congress related to his administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, the Justice Department said Wednesday.

The claim comes as the House Oversight and Reform Committee considers whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt for failing to turn over the subpoenaed documents. A contempt vote by the committee would be an escalation of Democratic efforts to use their House majority to aggressively investigate the inner workings of the Trump administration.

In a letter to the committee’s chairman, Rep. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the Justice Department asserted that the administration has “engaged in good-faith efforts” to satisfy the committee’s oversight needs and that the planned contempt vote was premature.

Democrats fear the question will reduce census participation in immigrant-heavy communities. They say they want specific documents to determine why Ross added the citizenship question to the 2020 census and contend the administration has declined to provide them despite repeated requests.

The administration has turned over more than 17,000 of pages of documents and Ross testified for nearly seven hours. The Justice Department said two senior officials been interviewed by committee staff and that officials were working to produce tens of thousands of additional pages of relevant documents.

Cummings disputed the Justice Department’s account and said most of the documents turned over to the committee had already been made public.

“We must protect the integrity of the census and we must stand up for Congress’ authority under the Constitution to conduct meaningful oversight,” Cummings said.

The administration’s refusal to turn over requested documents “does not appear to be an effort to engage in good-faith negotiations or accommodations,” he said. “Instead, it appears to be another example of the administration’s blanket defiance of Congress’ constitutionally mandated responsibilities.”

Trump has pledged to “fight all the subpoenas” issued by Congress and says he won’t work on legislative priorities, such as infrastructure, until Congress halts investigations of his administration.

Cummings postponed a planned vote Wednesday morning to allow lawmakers time to read the Justice Department letters.

Ross told the committee the decision in March 2018 to add the question was based on a Justice Department request to help it enforce the Voting Rights Act.

Death Of A Movement Wish

I’m giving you the tagline right off the bat, so you lazy activist readers who like to jump on whatever it is that anybody else is saying or doing that doesn’t line up with your distorted perception of reality can move on to your next target.

Picking the wrong battles to fight, because something pops up on your radar and because it did, it must be designed specifically for you to raise, or because you think you might just be able to make it fit, while the real battles, the ones of substance – the gut-wrenching glory battles – pass you by.


American women make the same mistakes American blacks make to keep themselves irrelevant, thus enslaved.

They pick up every argument – shotgun approach – whether it fits the discrimination or not. They work it to death trying to force-fit it to their agenda and in the end lose ground.

People see through that. They see the hypocrisy of a goal that justifies any means to attain it, making it look like you’d rather shed somebody’s blood than pursue a diplomatic solution. The activists driving these HATE AND DESTROY CAMPAIGNS to achieve their agendas state as their reason, that all conflict must at some point along the continuum to resolution result in violence and bloodshed and a significant amount of loss in order to bring all sides to the resolution table.

It sounds like war mongering to most ears. Violence and hatred is not a prerequisite for social or any other category of change.

When people see activists exhibit the same behavior they protest, the populace and the shakers and movers turn against the protestors and their message. Any cause needs those people at minimum to agree with your goals. But none have been stated. Women and blacks never state the goal. What do you want? They’re afraid if they say, they might get it, and regret not asking for more? We shouldn’t have to ask? Then why are you protesting? Using that logic, you shouldn’t have to protest either.

Every individual in the movement has a different demand.


Who do you think the government is, God? You’re talking to people here, not making a wish to your God. State what you want, the way you want this country, this world to be, detailed. Or they put droves of ignorant talking heads on cable news shows to act ignorant, as if ignorance will make the shakers and movers get for you what you want?

Really? That’s a strategy?

You’re all pathetic. Get off the stage, till you have something of substance to say, then say it in a succinct, positive, good for all, way.

You claim to be better, to know and possess a better way, but you don’t act or show it.

Share it.

You trivialize the woman and the black by focusing on trivial offenses. Using the nigger word, or grabbing somebody’s crotch in a high school party free for all? He tried to kiss me and grabbed at my clothes? Well, he called me the same thing as the nigger word, he bitch me?

You really do have a Death Of A Movement Wish (DOAMW). You don’t even want to be doing this.

Making up scenarios that you think happen all the time, so you ‘Hollywood’ it, like Hollywood does with the news, using actors as the OPINIONS of the people on the street interviewed for news shows. For entertainment purposes or to sway public opinion? Making black waiters scribble “i don’t tip black people’ on the restaurant bill, claiming a white customer did it, then stand all smiles while the cameras click away? And you just happened to have the telephone number of a major mainline news source junkie?

The best move the congressional democrats can make now: Vote YES for Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court Justice

You know you wanted him. The others convinced you that they could bring him to his knees, because of his Irish roots, forcing him to change his views to your way of thinking. He was the most malleable. They stereotyped him. He’s Irish – a slam dunk, walk in the park NO. He’s Irish. They drink a lot and when they drink a lot, they womanize – a stereotype that everybody gets regardless of how unfair it is. Democrats are the party of fair for all marginalized groups. Who forgot that? Who started this parade? You went after the IRISH? Hm-m.

Dems Vote YES for Kavanaugh. 

We did our due diligence. We’re convinced he will be fair in matters that concern us – (especially now that we’ve destroyed his family and friends using the Irish stereotype lol. Just kidding BK; we knew you could handle it. Hey, we know where your children go to



Big Bosses In Congress In With The Mafiosa Of Big Pharma

WASHINGTON — A group of House Democrats is organizing an effort to slow down an Obama administration plan to reduce drug prices, according to a letter obtained by The Huffington Post.

The Department of Health and Human Services is working toward finalizing a new rule that would experiment with ending the financial incentive doctors have for prescribing some extremely expensive medications. The rule has been well-received among some patient advocates, but congressional Democrats have been largely silent, while the pharmaceutical industry and medical community have waged an aggressive campaign to stop it…

HWH Comment: Democrats are acting like Republicans again! All incentives to doctors and clinics to prescribe any medication for any reason should be banned – outlawed.

Both Democrats and Republicans don’t want to get on board with lower-priced medicines.

The drug companies want to keep the financial incentives to physicians and clinics, so they’ll keep using and prescribing the most expensive drugs and as it turns out, so does Congress.

Congress in essence allows Big Pharma to bribe doctors and clinics into forcing expensive drugs onto patients when less expensive drugs would work as well or better, even when they know they can’t afford them.

So the rich get treated with the good drugs and stay rich – and maybe they get better. And the poor, well…they get sicker, go bankrupt or both. They’re given the drugs that don’t work first. Then, even if they can afford a couple trials of the expensive – cause it’s the best – drug, eventually their bank account dries up, leaving them with no viable treatment options and in financial ruin.

They hold a gun to the patient’s head. We have this really good, but really expensive drug that can cure you. What would you do? Hepatitis C can be cured with a shot for about twenty thousand dollars. The Veteran’s Administration won’t cover it, the veterans can’t afford it out of pocket, so they die. That’s a crime right there. A crime against humanity.

You use the drug that works. That’s the only ground you can stand on. If pharmaceuticals can’t tell physicians what works and what doesn’t – what is the best and worst – then that drug shouldn’t even be on the market. There shouldn’t even be a worst drug category. No doctor should ever prescribe a drug that they know won’t work. That’s a crime right there.

Doctors should not be allowed to accept gratuities from drug companies or from any company with a conflict of interest. Any entity involved in patient care has a conflict of interest. Let the patient decide, not the doctor or clinic being bought by the pharmaceuticals.

Doctors should not be making a commission on the drugs used in a clinical setting nor should they be receiving expensive vacations for the drugs they prescribe in an office setting (something that nobody’s addressing yet). What is wrong with our government, that they allow it?

They’re crooks – all of them. The Democrats are with the Republicans on this one. So now they think they’re working together. Yes, they are working together – against ‘we the people’ – working together against ‘the patient’, who is getting short-changed on quality healthcare, while everybody else lines up to line their pockets.

And healthcare professionals wonder why the lack of trust? How can you trust somebody who gets paid off for prescribing certain drugs? Doctors get pissed off when a patient doesn’t want a particular drug, or doesn’t want any drugs at all. They retaliate. When they see you walk through the door of their office, they see dollar signs. The more drugs they prescribe you, the more money in their pocket. If you don’t sign up as a contributor to their vacation, they remember that. Next time you want something, they’re not there for you.

It’s a racket that needs to end. They act like the Mafia. Patients are afraid to say no, and you can’t blame them. Ever wonder why so many bottles of prescription drugs end up in the toilet? They don’t want them. Doctors give signals, and the patients at their mercy get the message. Fill the prescriptions – whether you take them or not doesn’t matter. Just keep refilling them.

Congress isn’t qualified to be making healthcare decisions for patients. The only decision Congress should be making is outlawing financial kickbacks to healthcare professionals and institutions for prescribing certain high-end drugs, or any drug or medical device.

Doctors need to disqualify themselves based on their admitted corrupt practice of accepting bribes that affect a patient’s care.

Clinics are accepting the same bribes, so they’re disqualified.

Who else is there? Who is the advocate for the patient here and not just someone who is pandering to the pharmaceuticals and Congress, concerned only about how much profit everybody can make off of one prescription?

There is no one powerful enough to make a positive difference for the patient. Our healthcare system is broken. Putting band-aids on it isn’t going to fix it. The problem is corrupt politicians who get lobbied by special interests to your detriment. They always cave, and it’s always to your detriment.

Reducing the cost of a drug from twenty thousand to fifteen thousand isn’t going to make much difference to the patient, who couldn’t afford the copay either way.

Stop all incentives. Call the bluff of Big Pharma – when they hint that they’ll increase the prices on all of their drugs, not just the best ones. That’s extortion right there. Ban Bribery. Stop calling them incentives. Call their bluff. Don’t meet with lobbyists. Why do you meet with them? Because you want to get re-elected. Well, that’s on you. You don’t belong in office if you do whatever a lobbyist tells you to do, just to stay in office.

You serve the people.

We the people don’t need nor do we want Cowards in Congress. You work for us.
