    Low-income Americans will no longer be passed over when the federal government pays the bill for construction projects, HUD Secretary Ben Carson said Thursday. Carson said using a rule that has been ignored for much of the past 50 years is part of his different approach to running the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “It’s not how many people we can get into public housing,” Carson said during an interview with Newsmax TV. “It’s how many people we can get out of it.”

    Famous TV personality Steve Harvey explained to TMZ on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is doing what he said he would do after their meeting in Trump Tower back in January. "As far as doing what he promised me he'd do, he's doing it," Harvey said in Beverly Hills. "I'm working with HUD (Housing and Urban Development). I'm getting housing for underprivileged people. We're going to set up centers around the country. It's going really well, and God willing it will work out." Harvey said he wasn't happy with everything President Trump was doing, but did admit that "He's keeping...

    Dr. Ben Carson has discovered over $500 billion (that's with a 'B') in errors and accounting mistakes during his audit of the Obama administration’s Housing and Urban Development budget. One of Dr. Carson’s first orders after being confirmed as the Secretary of HUD was a thorough audit of the agency, which has been accused of fraud and over-budgeted projects throughout the entire Obama administration. What did the auditors find? Over $520 billion in budgetary mistakes and clerical errors.
  • Is the $516 Billion Accounting Error at HUD Actually the Democrats Anti-Trump War Chest?

    If you’re not familiar with the recent report showing that there were over $500 Billion in accounting errors at the Department for Housing and Urban Development (HUD), that’s because the MSM have either ignored it, or played it down as a simple difference in accounting practices. The fact is, that HUD, like everyone else in the US is required to follow Generally Accepted Accounting Practices (GAAP) as required by the law. That they did not gives us the first clue. In 2015, the errors totaled $3.4 Billion, and in 2016, $516.4 Billion. This is quite an increase and should not...

Van Duyne announced at a luncheon Thursday that she would be joining the Trump administration, but declined to say which department she will be joining, CBS DFW reported. She is expected to make an official announcement sometime next week after completing the necessary paperwork. Van Duyne declined to comment on the record for this article.

    Is that what we’re calling it now? Let’s see if I have this straight. When men and women and children were kidnapped from their villages and separated from their families and packed into rickety ships for months at a time to be traded for tobacco and cotton and cloth and grain, that was immigration? When people were branded with hot irons like cattle on a ranch so that ownership of one human being by another human being would not be in dispute, that was immigration? When women were raped for no other reason than that it was Tuesday, or Friday...

    Massachusetts' very own profile in courage - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren - Thursday voted against the only African-American nominee to Donald Trump's Cabinet, Ben Carson, who was confirmed as secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The funny thing is that Warren was pretty much OK with voting in favor of the former neurosurgeon back when his nomination was being considered by the Senate Banking Committee - a mere five weeks ago. In fact, at the time Warren wrote an extensive Facebook post, defending her support for Carson even though "he is not the nominee I wanted." "But 'the nominee I...

    Ben Carson is now officially confirmed as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, following the Senate vote Thursday morning. The approval locks in one of the few remaining cabinet members left to be approved. The Senate floor voted the day before on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination of Carson, passing the vote 62-37. The significant majority vote gave Carson a likely green light to be confirmed on Thursday. Despite a controversial start to his nomination, it turned out to be all bark and no bite as his hearing went fairly smooth. The former neurosurgeon...

    Programs like Joseph Project, the Miss Mary Project create real sustainable success that can blossom into prosperity and change lives. If HUD will use their vast communications network to support those community efforts, we will shrink poverty Since the 1964 Civil Rights Act was passed, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has expanded its mandate to enforce these laws by labeling everything that is not equal, from the educational experience and housing, to the relative wealth of your residential zip code, as discriminatory.

    Much of AFFH is buried in regulatory law Yes, President Trump can halt HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program even before Dr. Carson is confirmed. If you follow the news, you probably noticed that President Trump is moving quickly on his campaign promises. You have also probably noticed that the Senate opposition is slow-walking his cabinet appointments to make it harder to for the president to address regulatory actions.

    “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”These were the infamous words President Barack Obama used to scold congressional Republicans just three days after his inauguration in 2009, foreshadowing how he would approach policymaking for the next eight years.Rather than listening to and trying to work with Republicans, Obama governed through brute force—with his “pen and phone” more often than with the consent of Congress—guided by the dictates of his progressive ideology rather than the interests of the American people.In virtually every policy area—from health care and immigration to the deployment of American troops and the...

    Mary Kinney quietly retired last year as Ginnie Mae’s chief operating officer after officials there paid $900,000 to settle a subordinate’s racism complaint against her, then cashed in on her public service experience to land a position in a firm that uses minority status to win non-competitive government contracts. Kinney — who is caucasian — also claimed the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) picked her for its most prestigious employee award in 2015, after it found out about conduct it called “utterly humiliating” and “race denigrating” toward blacks and determined that “discriminatory malice permeated her mindset.” But HUD...

David Barrett, you'll recall, is the independent counsel appointed in 1995 to investigate allegations of impropriety against President Clinton's Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros. Mr. Barrett found his path mined by the Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service and President Clinton's attorneys, even after Mr. Clinton departed the White House. He prepared 18 felony indictments against Mr. Cisneros but had to settle for a guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge (lying to the...

    During his Senate confirmation hearing, Dr. Ben Carson, secretary of Housing and Urban Development-designate, told a story. He said his mother was a domestic who cleaned beautiful homes. One day she asked him if he would rather live in those nice houses or the house in which he and his brother lived in Detroit. She told him that only he could decide the type of home he would eventually live in by how much he studied in school and the choices he made for his life. Thus motivated, Carson said he went from last in his class to first,...

    During his confirmation hearing Thursday, Ben Carson repeatedly refused to guarantee that money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development would not go to benefit President-elect Donald Trump or his family. “Among the billions of dollars that you will be handing out in grants and loans, can you just assure us that not one dollar will go to benefit either the president-elect or his family?” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) asked. “I can assure you that the things that I do are driven by a sense of morals and values,” Carson responded. “And therefore I will absolutely not play favorites...
