Ben Carson Exposes $500 Billion In Government WASTE…Guess Who’s Going DOWN For It?

President Trump has made some stellar picks in his administration thus far. The left has predictably criticized every single one of them, calling them all variety of things, including “idiotic” and “unqualified”.

One of the main targets that liberals have zeroed in on is the new Housing and Urban Development secretary, Ben Carson.

Critiques of Trump’s pick stated Ben Carson is merely a surgeon with no government experience, and therefore isn’t suited for the position.

But Carson just proved all of them wrong with this recent discovery that Obama’s former HUD secretary, Julian Castro, mysteriously missed.

President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama.

In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.

“The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote.

So Ben Carson was mocked by liberals for being unqualified, yet the supposedly qualified Julian Castro created half a trillion dollars in errors?

These bookkeeping”errors” are likely intentional embezzlement by Democrats who were emboldened to do so under Obama.

Now that their crime spree is over, the Democrats are kicking and screaming because this find suggests there are many more government agencies in need of an audit.

Someone is going to pay for this massive waste of taxpayer dollars – the only question is how high does it go?  Where was the money embezzled to? Hopefully we can pin the tail on a very important donkey!

Outsiders like Trump and Carson prove that because they are not a part of the swamp, they are just the people we need to keep the government in check.

Just think, if Hillary Clinton had won, we never would have known this was happening!

      I would like to see the proof of these accusations. Carson has been known to say outrageous things that aren’t true. And if the right is outraged about this what about the millions Trump and his family are spending of taxpayers’ money on their trips and weekends in Florida that go straight into Trump coffers. While we’re sending people to prison, don’t forget the Trump family and their extravagant life styles.

    Along time ago–those of us who took courses in counseling-learned about anal personality types, I was a young woman working at a state mental hospital, and I soon learned that if a person want to be a career civil servant, I would need to develop into this personality type, so after banging around in teaching , and social work or what ever, to make use of my college degree, I went to seminary and became Presbyterian pastor, and discover that in the church these personalities were mistakenly called conservatives, the people who made sure nothing ever happened, and that they were always in charge of non movements. Well–anyhow–all career politicians either are or do become anal personalities for which we the people need to set term limits I believe that people like Carson and Trump are gifts of God. This political mess up is due to the lack of movement in the heads and hearts of the career politicians,, who are badly in need of a Spiritual enema, better known as a revival. ,

    This partially explains how one president (BHO) managed to double the national debt in his regime. When or if other agencies are audited (as they must be) it will explain it further.I am anxious to find out just how BHO became so wealthy while he was in office. Could it possibly be that he was being paid off by Soros et al?? After all he almost achieved making the US into a third world country and part of the NWO. BHO did everything he could to bankrupt this country so the muslims could take over. He should be charged and prosecuted for treason. Not likely, I know. What shame that nobody in Congress has the balls for it. Between the demos and rinos all they care about is making themselves richer and more powerful.

      Well, I guess stating facts cannot actually be moderated. Truth is truth and I defy anyone to prove that anything I wrote is not truth. He did increase his financial worth millions during his presidency. If he didn’t deliberately give away all our money to countries who hate us and the UN, weaken our military, allow our enemy Iran to build up their nuclear arsenal, alienate Israel, our only democratic ally in the middle east, and other things less frightning, then he was the most incompetent president ever elected.

    I knew a man one time whom had embezzled a few thousand and he went to prison for awhile. Now each and every one of them should be fired and receive a nice cell in a federal prison. Any and all assets should be seized to recover some of the losses. It is a shame that these people have felt the need to keep the people in poverty and homeless in many cases when it wasn’t even necessary. There is an old saying, “Don’t mess with the Bull or you get the horn”. I would love to be on that Bull’s team. Now political correctness time: Naw, God Bless America and may God bless each and every real American.

    This has all been suspected for a very long time. Over the decades many hints have come out about the creative bookkeeping of politics. An awful lot of friend buying and toadying has been going on for a really long time, and probably not just among the democrats. There are a good number of really nervous republicans too. There is cover up money, for the cover up money, for the cover up money. There are massively wealthy middle men. There are contractors being paid exorbitant amounts of money for virtually nothing. If the people question why their taxes are going up again just throw another phony “study” at them. Better yet, make them feel guilty about something or stir some phony pot of garbage to throw them off the scent. Look over here! Look over here! No, not over there, that is nothing, look over here!!! The government is so bloated with payola that it is no wonder it is broke and borrowing from all over the place!

    But the audit was actually done by Obama’s administration. Also it was a bunch of errors that absolutely added to $520 Billion. If you added it normally so over accounting and under accounting cancel each other its actually around $3 million. Obama had lots of real flaws. Lets not make up things up.

    God, does nobody know how to fact check on this website? All you need to do is Google “Ben Carson finds $500 Billion in HUD” and you’re immediately given the Snopes investigation that disproves this. The audit of the Department of Housing and Urban Development was well into it’s investigation when Ben Carson assumed the secretary position. This is an insane claim, and it takes incredible laziness and poor judgement to post an article without doing your due diligence. No wonder “fake news” is always trending.

    I’m a very conservative person but does not see things in terms of liberal Vs conservative or republican Vs democrat. Government waste has always existed. There are countries in the world that have tackled that issue and done an excellent job in fixing it. Now truth be told, if one audits all agencies at the state and federal levels run by both republican and democrats, one will sure find waste. Greed has no political face. Greed has no racial face. Greed is purely embedded in human nature. To not acknowledge that is pure nonsense. One can just do some research and find out that both republicans and democrats that have run the country have wasted billions of dollars… Nothing new under the sun. I understand the support for DT, some thinking that he is God and the best thing since sliced bread. He has a good idea on the direction he wants the country to go but after all he is human.Never forgets this “greed and power corrupt the mind. “

    Although significant problems with HUD’s bookkeeping turned up, claims that Dr. Carson, barely two months into his tenure as HUD secretary, found billions of dollars lost through accounting errors are misleading. The audit originated prior to Dr. Carson’s arrival at HUD, and the astoundingly large-sounding dollar figure is an aggregate of many different discrepancies in different directions.

    According to the OIG report, HUD maintains that the errors represented a net adjustment of only $3 million and resulted in “no changes in HUD’s financial position or impact to [HUD] programs”:

    Thank you Ben Carson, the most corrupt group of treasonous politicians and thieves in the history of our nation should be impeached for treason and be held accountable for their crimes against the people of our nation. Start at the Top and reveal every single one of them that have been robbing our nation blind. Hillary Clinton left the SOS with an unaccountable shortage in the billions, and that goes for every department in the Obama administration. I have even read that Obama has put billions in offshore banking accounts under his name Barry Soetoro and many others have unmasked fortunes on government salaries. The OBAMA administration had no balanced budget for the entire eight years that he was in office, and he was the only one that never did. Why is that and with a national deficit that tripled to the largest in our entire history, if that doesn’t raise red flags, I don’t know what would. Drain this swamp and I want to see names and numbers on arrest mugshots for treason and other crimes against our nation.
