Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) revealed on Thursday that he had become a congressman because he was outraged that single women were having as many as 15 babies and getting welfare checks.
“If it weren’t for the policies in this War on Poverty declared 50 years ago, it may well be that I would not have ever run for Congress,” Gohmert said during a Wednesday night speech on the House floor. “Because what got me thinking about it first as a state district judge back in Texas was seeing more and more young women, single women coming before me — single moms — charged with welfare fraud.”
The Texas Republican said that women discovered that “the government will send you a check for every baby you have out of wedlock.”



The War on Poverty: Not Just a Liberal Campaign

Two things are particularly notable. First, the War on Poverty went far beyond means-tested assistance to low-income people. In fact, it focused mostly on health, education and employment, but also included seemingly unrelated measures like tax cuts. Second, while Johnson proposed and implemented the War on Poverty, it wasn't just a liberal, Democratic initiative. President Richard Nixon largely built on and institutionalized the War on Poverty, and most of the major initiatives of the War passed with solid bipartisan support.

And, although few liberals or conservatives mention it today, Johnson also viewed tax cuts as part of the War on Poverty. Ashe put it, tax cuts were needed "above all ... to create new jobs and new markets in every area of this land." Just over a month after Johnson declared war on poverty, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1964, which cut individual tax rates across the board. The top marginal rate, for example, was reduced from 91 percent to 70 percent, a major cut at the time, but still a far cry from today's top marginal rate of 39.6 percent.On that first point, in a new book from the Russell Sage Foundation, Martha Bailey and Sheldon Danziger remind us that the full legislative agenda associated with the War on Poverty included the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, the expansion of minimum wage coverage, an unprecedented effort to increase access to post-secondary education, increased federal support for elementary and secondary education, and many other initiatives to boost skills and employment.

On the second point -- bipartisan support, before Ronald Reagan rhetorically established himself in opposition to the War on Poverty, Richard Nixon and other congressional conservatives largely embraced it as a practical matter. For example, in 1969, Nixon called for adding an automatic cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to Social Security as well as an across-the-board benefit increase. He signed both into law in 1972.


Medicare paid millions to dead patients, illegal immigrants, probe finds

Here we go with another headline that insults my intelligence and it should everyone else's that knew WTF was going on and has been going on forever, just no one wanted to look or was so caught up in trivial mainstream BS. Payments to illegal immigrants, refugees, dead people, or dead people voting has been going on for a long long time.

Penn State study shows gene mutation 10,000 years ago is the reason for Europeans' light skin

Have you ever wondered where the Irish get their light skin color from? Well, it appears we may now have the answer.

A major new US study at Penn State University has found that Europeans' light skin stems from a gene mutation from a single person who lived 10,000 years ago.

Scientists made the discovery after identifying a key gene that contributes to lighter skin color in Europeans and the Irish fall into this category.

The Mail Online reports that, in earlier research, Keith Cheng from Penn State College of Medicine reported that one amino acid difference in the gene SLC24A5 is a key contributor to the skin color difference between Europeans and West Africans. This is undoubtedly where the Irish get their light skin from.

‘The mutation in SLC24A5 changes just one building block in the protein, and contributes about a third of the visually striking differences in skin tone between peoples of African and European ancestry,’ he said.

They studied segments of genetic code that have a mutation and are located closely on the same chromosome and are often inherited together.

The mutation, called A111T, is found in virtually every one of European ancestry.
A111T is also found in populations in the Middle East and Indian subcontinent, but not in high numbers in Africans.

All individuals from the Middle East, North Africa, East Africa and South India who carry the A111T mutation share traces of the ancestral genetic code. According to the researchers, this indicates that all existing instances of this mutation originate from the same person.

BERLIN (AP) — German authorities said Wednesday they have charged an 88-year-old former member of an SS armored division with 25 counts of murder over allegations that he took part in the largest civilian massacre in Nazi-occupied France.

Cologne state court spokesman Achim Hengstenberg said suspect Werner C., whose last name wasn't given in accordance with German privacy laws, was also charged with hundreds of counts of accessory to murder in connection with the 1944 slaughter in Oradour-sur-Glane in southwestern France. "they never seemed to have a problem any other time giving last names of Nazis they were bringing up on charges. . .just saying" bn

Dortmund prosecutors allege that the suspect shot 25 men as part of a firing squad, and then helped as troops blockaded and then set fire to a church, in which dozens of women and children were burned alive.

In total 642 men, women and children were killed

The suspect's attorney, Rainer Pohlen, told The Associated Press his client doesn't deny being at the village but said he never fired a shot that day and was not otherwise involved in any killings.

"My client contests any participation in this massacre, which he finds a truly terrible act," he said, adding that he had fully cooperated in giving statements to investigators.


The court now needs to decide whether to move ahead with a trial, but the suspect first has until March 31 to respond to the charges.

If the case does go to trial, it is possible it would be held in a juvenile court because the suspect was only 19 at the time.

The suspect was part of the 3rd Company of the 1st Battalion of the "Der Fuehrer" regiment of the fanatical SS's "Das Reich" division.

On June 10, 1944 — just four days after the D-Day landings in Normandy — the company attacked Oradour-sur-Glane in reprisal for the French Resistance's kidnapping of a German soldier.

47 Years ago today, The Civil Rights Act was passed by Lyndon B Johnson to ensure Voters rights to all races, for desegregation to take place in schools to make sure everyone felt they where receiving equal education, scholarships, grants. Most White citizens and other citizens of The United States of America see how well that has worked out for the biggest part.


A qualified experienced Caucasian get’s overlooked not only in Employment, but Scholarships, Government Grants, and the list continues to grow on how White Americans Civil Rights are overlooked.

So lets remember the day this infamous nail was driven into the coffin of the United States of America. shera~

Our nation’s first immigration law in 1882 specified that nobody would be allowed into our country if that individual expected a free ride. Anybody expecting to live off public money was turned away. Not anymore. The United States has become a deluxe retirement home for the elderly of other countries. Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation has discoveredthat most of the one million non-citizens in the United States are living off you.

Forty-five percent of all elderly immigrants in California are getting cash from you. Among Russian immigrants, 66 percent are taking your money.At today’s rate of immigration, there will be 3 million noncitizen immigrants costing you — over the next ten years —$328 billion. Publications that are widely distributed among immigrants in all languages tell them how to get your money.
Homegrown Americans expect parents to provide for their own children, yet immigrant families can bring immigrant elderly to the United States and expect taxpayers to support them.The triage law of the sea prescribes a legal limit for thenumber of people in each lifeboat. Any others seeking to fight their way aboard must be refused — in any way necessary — in order to keep the lifeboat afloat.

And this figure is in excess of any taxes thatemployed immigrants might pay.Those who contend that mass immigration is aneconomic asset do not compute all the costs of services rendered free to immigrants. Also, they omit the children of immigrants from their fiscal analyses.

A Roper Poll reveals that 54 percent of Americans want annual immigration to be less than 100,000. But each year— as more immigrants, legal and other, arrive — thehomegrown Americans in the lifeboat will be further outnumbered, out-shouted and overwhelmed.It seems inhospitable — cruel — to turn others away. But when our own Ship of State is sinking in a sea of red ink, the alternative to triage is Titanic.
