HALEY ADMINISTRATION ON BOARD WITH SHADY PROJECT … 

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley‘s scandal ravaged Department of Social Services (SCDSS) approved a controversial “refugee resettlement” scam in the South Carolina Upstate – and has been expending taxpayer funds on health screenings, employment services and other government services related to the project.

Unbelievable, right?

Earlier this month, FITS exposed this resettlement project as nothing but a taxpayer-subsidized racket supported by elements of the far left – a racket preying on impressionable evangelicals.

This week, U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy jumped into the fray – sending a sternly worded letter to the U.S. State Department demanding a halt to the resettlement pending answers to a series of questions

One of the questions Gowdy asked?

“Which officials/employees of the South Carolina State government reviewed and approved the resettlement agency’s proposal? When was such approval given?”

Ruh-roh, governor … sounds like somebody’s got some explaining to do.

The pressure is ramping up, too.   S.C. Rep. Donna Hicks – one of the first state lawmakers to demand an investigation into the resettlement scam – announced her intention to raise the volume level on the issue via a town hall in Spartanburg.

“I am holding a town hall meeting in the next few weeks on this matter,” Hicks wrote, adding that popular Upstate radio host Bob McLain had agreed to co-host the event.

Hicks is also traveling to Washington, D.C. later this week to gather additional information on the controversial proposal.

As we noted in our initial report, “previous resettlement campaigns couched as ‘evangelical’ efforts have in reality been front groups for liberal campaigns like the National Immigration Forum – a group that’s received funding from organizations affiliated with billionaire liberal financier George Soros.

“Faith-based compassion is a wonderful thing, but just as one’s religious beliefs shouldn’t be imposed on another without consent … neither should taxpayer obligations based on those beliefs,” we wrote.

SCDSS has been an unmitigated disaster since Haley took office in 2011 – most notably as it relates to these instances in which vulnerable children were repeatedly placed in abusive homes.

Beyond that, there’s the agency’s ongoing failure with regard to the state’s child support enforcement database – or its total lack of follow-through regarding a food stamp waiver touted by Haley in her so-called “war on fat.” There are also questionable consultant payments and allegations of cooked books at its “welfare to work” program (as well as its food stamp system).

(For a recent report detailing one of these scams, CLICK HERE).

Of course Haley has defended the agency to the hilt … as we suspect she will do in this case.

But with state and federal lawmakers demanding answers, she could soon find herself embroiled in a major scandal.

Purges, yea that’s what we do in America. Are you more Hitler-esque or Stalin-esque today? The Night of The Long Knives vs Yezhovshchina. I guess it really doesn’t matter you end up with a lot of dead people and people in interment camps either way. As long as it’s for the “Good of The Party”. Am I right or am I right?

The only problem comes when YOU are the re-educator. Nobody is going to listen to a juvenile menace no matter what they have to say, regardless of whether they are right or wrong. That just turns more people into liberal voters. So who is really perpetuating the problem here?

Answer the question, old man. Quit being a presumptuous dolt. “That’s why you’ve won so many statewide elections” is a meaningless response, even if you were responding to a liberal. Either you’re part of the problem or you’re part of the solution. If your derangement and hate-filled ranting is part of the solution, just say so.

Oh no, you didn’t get your mindless question answered? That’s interesting, seeing as you never answer mine. You get called out for the menace that you are, then you run away from it and proceed to try and turn the subject around to nothing but a bunch of meaningless babble. Quit fleeing from who and what you are.

This program is not a good idea, without fully informing the state and local community.

Praying on “impressionable evangelicals”. Hmm. So what makes them impressionable? Do you mean Christians who believe we are obligated to feed and clothe the poor, treat the sick, house the homeless and minister to those in distress. I wonder who had the gravitas to convince “impressionable” people to believe that foolishness?

I guess the more seasoned unimpressionable evangelicals know that all god expects of them is to sit their ass in a pew on Sunday, and make sure they and their family aren’t subjected to any undesirables. “God helps those who help themselves.” Matthew 25:31 Unimpressionable Christian Standard Version.

Boy, is one side or the other going to be surprised in the end.

To pay for all of these millions of “refugees” ( invading illegal aliens), taxes has to be raised. Taxes are needed to pay for their Section 8 Housing, their EBT (food stamps), there medical provisions when necessary, the schooling for their children (and the parent(s) normally breed like Jack Rabbits.
.
Why should We The People have to pay for this? Why should are taxes be raised to cover the cost of the same? Oh, our rogue and lawless representatives tell us taxes need to be raised to keep government running (never mind that millions are dished out in PAY RAISES for well – and I mean “WELL” paid government employees – employees who are given right off the hip, 3 WEEKS PAID VACATION … on top of that, 3 WEEKS PAID SICK LEAVE, more days than you can shake a stick at in PAID ANNUAL LEAVE.
.
These people in government are all a bunch of God Damn fuck ups. Clearly they are liars, crooks, and thieves. Every last one of them are sick narcissistic power freaks. They must be punished. Millions of illegal aliens on Welfare … IMAGINE THAT! … And for those of you who have a job, (and I am employed) … Do NOT allow yourselves to be SUCKERED by these rogue politicians. .
Its time to unite and go to war with illegals, their advocates, and the corrupt political machine that thinks they are above the peoples law. This shit by these people that we have afforded too much power over us must be stopped – NOW.
