Carson on HUD eviction plan: 'You take care of your own first'
House lawmakers sparred Tuesday over a plan from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to remove thousands of immigrant families from federally subsidized homes.
In a heated hearing with HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Democratic members of the House Financial Services Committee blasted President Trump's housing chief for what they called an inhumane and ineffective proposal to evict undocumented immigrants from federal housing.
"The 'D' in HUD does not stand for 'deportation,' " said Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.). "We cannot create affordable housing for Americans by throwing other Americans out in the street with no place to go."
HUD announced in April it would tighten regulations barring immigrants in the country illegally from receiving federal housing benefits. While families with at least one member eligible for HUD programs are currently allowed to live in federally subsidized housing, Carson's proposal would evict all households led by undocumented immigrants.
HUD estimates that 32,000 federally subsidized households and 55,000 children would be subject to evictions under its proposal. That could force thousands of U.S.-born children of undocumented immigrants, along with legal permanent residents, refugees, and asylum-seekers, into homelessness.
"I hope and pray that you rethink that," said Rep. Juan Vargas (D-Calif.), adding that he couldn't believe "that this rule could come from you."
"I don't think you're mean-spirited at all," Vargas continued. "I have to say, taking these 55,000 children and putting them on the street is mean-spirited. I don't think it's your nature."
Carson and House Republicans insisted Tuesday that the evictions are necessary to comply with federal law and cut down a waiting list of more than 4 million U.S. citizens seeking HUD-subsidized housing.
"It's not that we're cruel, mean-hearted. It's that we are logical," Carson said. "This is common sense. You take care of your own first."
The secretary compared the eviction proposal to a flight crew advising airplane passengers to put on their own oxygen masks before helping others with theirs.
"It's the same concept," Carson added. "It seems only logical that tax-paying American citizens should be taken care of first."
Throughout his term as HUD chief, Carson has been criticized by Democrats for proposals to ease more Americans out of public housing, cut spending on development grants, and its handling of disaster relief funding.
HUD's eviction proposal launched a new wave of backlash from Democrats as the Trump administration and Republicans pushed forward with similar initiatives to cut other federal benefits for undocumented immigrants, including Medicaid and food stamps.
"I applaud you because as an American citizen, we should put Americans first," said Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) to Carson.

Big banks defend policies on gun manufacturers to Congress
April 10 (UPI) – Big banks defended their policies to lend – or not lend – to gun manufacturers during testimony Wednesday before the House financial services committee. Democrats on the panel praised the leaders of Bank of America and Citigroup – two of seven in attendance – for their decisions to stop loaning money to gun makers after a teenager used an assault-style rifle to kill 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan told lawmakers his bank made the move because some 100 company employees had been present in multiple mass shootings in recent years. "These are based on us taking a look at what the right thing [is] for our teammates and the communities we serve," he said.
Republicans, though, criticized the policies. "There's a lot of Americans who you serve [that] would greatly disagree with that policy," Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., said to Moynihan. "It might play well in the East Coast, it might play well in California, [but] your bank is not the Bank of New York or California, it's the Bank of America." Meanwhile, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., vice chairwoman of the committee, questioned JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon on why is bank hadn't implemented similar policies. The bank has given hundreds of millions of dollars in loans to gun makers. The company also partially owns Remington Outdoor Co., after converting more than $775 million in debt into equity.
Dimon said JPMorgan Chase would possibly consider policies like those at Bank of America and Citigroup. "Everything we do with clients goes through a severe process of review, reputational risk, etc. We have a very small relationship with gun manufacturers," Dimon said. "There are over 100,000 retailers out there who sell guns. Every single one that we do business with we do a thorough review. And if we think they are doing something wrong our risk committee stops doing business with them.

U.S. lawmakers grill bank CEOs for the first time since financial crisis
(Reuters) - Chief executives of some of the largest U.S. banks appeared before Congress on Wednesday, giving lawmakers their first opportunity to grill the lenders since the 2007-2009 financial crisis.
Democratic lawmakers focused many of their questions on who the banks were doing business with, probing for answers about their Russian accounts and financing of gun manufacturers.
The tone, questions and players were distinctly different from a decade ago, when lawmakers focused on banks' ability to safeguard the financial system and avoid future bailouts. Among the CEOs on the panel, JPMorgan Chase & Co's Jamie Dimon was the only one who headed his bank before the financial crisis.
Still, bank executives got a few chances to flag hoped-for talking points like their positive contribution to the economy when Republican lawmakers quizzed them on more systemic issues.
Along with JPMorgan's Dimon, Bank of America Corp's Brian Moynihan, Citigroup Inc's Mike Corbat, Goldman Sachs Group Inc's David Solomon and Morgan Stanley's James Gorman all faced off against the House Financial Services Committee.
Ronald O'Hanley, CEO of State Street Corp, and Charles Scharf, CEO of Bank of New York Mellon Corp, the country's two largest custody banks, also appeared.
The hearing was led by Democratic Representative Maxine Waters and staffed with some high-profile freshman representatives like progressives including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Waters' first question, directed at three of the bank CEOs, was whether they had found suspicious activity within their banks related to Russian accounts.
Citi's Corbat declined to comment, citing an ongoing investigation into the matter. The Bank of America and Morgan Stanley CEOs said they had conducted internal investigations and did not find any suspicious activity.
Questions largely focused less on systemic risks and more on social issues like how banks are addressing wealth inequality by adjusting overdraft fees in checking accounts, and whether banks are extending loans to businesses that need them.
Democratic Representative Carolyn Maloney pressed JPMorgan's Dimon to commit to a policy that would reduce the bank's financing of gun makers. Citi and Bank of America last year said they would no longer provide certain banking services to gun manufacturers.
Some Republican lawmakers criticized such policies on Wednesday, with Representative Bill Posey cautioning banks against withholding financing from legal business and Representative Sean Duffy accusing Bank of America of denying Americans their Second Amendment rights.
The bank executives' prepared remarks focused on arguing that Wall Street has reformed the practices that fueled the crisis and stressing the contribution banks make to the broader economy.
Dimon said that JPMorgan "will never lose sight of what we learned Still, the bank has taken steps that went a long way to preventing another crisis, Dimon argued.
(fuck you too buddy!)
Since the crisis, the country's largest banks have added more than $800 billion in capital to bolster the financial system.
In the months leading up to the hearing, the banks also made a string of announcements to show how they are helping customers and communities.
Bank of America said on Tuesday it would raise its minimum hourly wage to $20 from $15 by 2021.
Last month, JPMorgan said it would no longer finance the private prison industry and would invest $350 million in job training programs.

Goldman Sachs has publicly set targets for hiring women and minority groups, a move Citigroup also made late last year.
Wells Fargo & Co was not present at the hearing since former CEO Tim Sloan resigned abruptly last month, two weeks after appearing before the same committee.

CNN Channels 1960s Film For Tips on Denial
Posted on April 1, 2019
CNN has been on the defense recently because the network has been plagued by errors in its reporting on the Russia investigation.
Thursday on CNN's "Cuomo Primetime," Rep. Sean Duffy, a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee, debated host Chris Cuomo about the network's coverage of the Mueller investigation. "You're the reporters," Duffy told Cuomo. "And as reporters, you have a job to make sure you're putting out the right facts. For two years you're putting out the wrong facts." "What wrong facts did we put out?" Cuomo asked. "That there was Russian collusion," Duffy said.

Rep. Sean Duffy Calls Out CNN's Chris Cuomo For Media Bias On Russia Collusion
Rep. Sean Duffy called out CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday night for his network's role in promoting the Russian collusion conspiracy theory. Duffy noted that special counsel Robert Mueller spent two years investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and did not charge a single person for colluding. Duffy called the results "great news" for President Donald Trump and added that "it's time to celebrate."
The Wisconsin Republican turned his sights on the media, telling Cuomo, "We spent two years speculating." "What I think you want to know is, who duped us?" Duffy said. "You've been talking about this for over two years. You should say, who actually set this up?" "You guys are supposed to figure that out," Cuomo claimed.
"What you guys did is you reported on it," Duffy countered. "You took all these salacious reports, you know, of all of this scandal and for two years. And you've gotta say, analyze how we get our information ... I look at the American people and they go, 'Do I trust the media? Do I trust the Democrats who have been pounding this story that's absolutely false?'"
Cuomo blamed the president for Duffy's perception of the media, citing Trump's constant criticism of the press. "If the media was doing its job they would be far more skeptical," Duffy said. "You're the reporters and you have a job to make sure you're putting out the right facts. You put out the wrong facts." "What wrong facts did we put out?" Cuomo asked. CNN published several false stories related to Russian collusion over the past two years, including their debunked claim that Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci was under investigation for alleged ties to Russia. Three CNN journalists resigned over the story.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is something of a trailblazer. At the tender age of 44 years old, Haley has already managed to become not only the first female governor of the state of South Carolina, but also the first minority governor. And now President-elect Donald Trump has tapped her to become the United States Ambassador to the United Nations under his administration. The child of Indian immigrants, Nikki Haley changed her name from Nimrata Nikki Randhawa when she went in to politics.
Haley told The Charlotte Observer in 2010, when she became governor, that she dropped her maiden name simply because it "wouldn't fit on a yard sign," but not everyone is buying that. While the Republican Party has reportedly begun to embrace women and minorities in leadership roles as a way to broaden their voter pool, whether or not the GOP would have been welcoming of a woman with a Sikh heritage a few years ago is doubtful. And it's possible that Haley thought her Indian heritage might have been a tough pill to swallow for the Republicans as well; in 2001, Haley identified herself as "white" on a voter registration card, according to a report by the Associated Press.
Haley did convert to Christianity when she married her husband, National Guardsman Michael Haley (in an interesting twist, when Haley met her husband he was called by his first name, Bill, but she had him change to his middle name since "he didn't look like a Bill." Is she a secret name stylist?). The couple are raising their two children, Rena and Nalin, as Methodist, but Haley claims to attend services for both faiths.
Haley's appointment as the next United States ambassador to the United Nations has raised a few eyebrows despite her popularity within the Republican Party; first of all, she isn't known to have a great handle on foreign policy. Wisconsin Republican Sean Duffy told CNN he didn't think her lack of experience would be a big deal:
She's a smart woman. I don't think you need this great history of diplomatic experience to go in the UN and be successful. I think what you want to do is find people who will share your worldview especially when they go and represent you from the administration to the UN or any other post.
Haley and Trump have had a bit of a rocky history, with each of them throwing jabs at each other. Haley endorsed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and said she "wasn't a fan" of Trump, while he famously Tweeted that the people of South Carolina were "embarrassed" by Haley. The two appear to have sorted through their differences for the sake of governing the country.
The real question is this: once Haley becomes the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, will she embrace her real name along with her heritage? She has credited her heritage with helping her see beyond racial differences in the past, and the United Nations is the perfect platform for her to openly embrace these differences.

BOOM: BLOCKBUSTER UPDATE: IT IS NOW CONFIRMED THIS WAS AN ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. ALL THE ROADS WERE SHUT DOWN AHEAD OF THE TRAIN, WHICH HAD HELICOPTER ESCORT. THERE'S NO WAY THE GARBAGE TRUCK COULD HAVE BEEN WHERE IT WAS, ABSENT AN OUTRIGHT ATTEMPT TO GET IT IN FRONT OF THE TRAIN.
Uh oh! "Choppers were following the train and the rail road crossings were supposed to be shut down for the senators to have priority per Rachel Campos Duffy, wife of Sean Duffy R-WI on Fox"
THIS IS NOW A CONFIRMED HIT ON REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO VOTED TO RELEASE THE MEMO.
The photos of the accident scene are a little misleading, the train in fact hit the dump truck at the prior crossing, and carried it to the next crossing. the train did not just stop on a dime.
