The White House made the announcement right after the president indicated he would make a decision “very soon” about Price. “I think he’s a very fine person, I certainly don’t like the optics,” Trump said when asked by reporters about the investigation.

“I think he’s a very fine person, I certainly don’t like the optics,” Trump said. He added that Price was a “very good man” but that he was not pleased with the news.

The investigation spearheaded by Politico uncovered about $1 million in taxpayer-funded private, charter, and military planes during the eight months of his time in office.

“I’m not happy, I can tell you,” Trump said.

Price tried to apologize for the flights, vowing not to do it again and even offering to refund taxpayers for some of the cost, but it was apparently not enough for the White House.

Trump told reporters that the White House would be putting a stop to cabinet officials traveling on private flights.

“We put in an order … no more planes,” Trump said, pointing out that the Obama administration spent a lot of time and money on airplane flights.

He stated at the time that Price had not offered to resign, but said “we’ll see” about the future of his job as HHS Secretary.

Approximately 30 minutes later, the White House released its statement announcing Price’s resignation.

Sooooo...now what?  Is that it?  He stole one million dollars from the taxpayers and he won't be charged with any crime or have to pay it back?  And NOT just part of it-----ALL OF IT!

As of 2014, Price was estimated to have a net worth of $13.6 million.  So...he HAS the money to pay off the money he stole from US.   DAMN, he really managed to stash away a boat load of money as a doctor.  

People such as Price, if they had any sense, would announce publicly that, " since my job as HHS Secretary requires that I personally attend, along with staff, these upcoming meetings, I am hereby letting the public know that I need to hitch a ride to get us there. If none is available, and I am expected to provide it myself, then I am calling on my boss, the President, to clearly say so and thus remove any doubt or confusion about travel expenses.

  I bring this matter to the attention of the public in order to separate my conduct from that of the previous Obama administration, who, along with his Sec. of State and Attorney Generals,  would liberally lavish public funds upon themselves as if it grew from the ground like corn from Nebraska or wheat from Kansas,  and are even to this very day enjoying it without fear of accountability in the least.

I, on the other hand, am honest to the bone, and will do my job with honor an integrity as I have sworn to do upon my acceptance of it.

Thank you, very much."  

 

I don't think you can write off your honeymoon as a legitimate business need.....

But the Leftists could, and it would not only be defended by the criminal media but also deemed to be an example of National caring and concern for the future and happiness of such a beloved public servant.

And that was my point. IF Price had any sense.....and he didn't.   People in Trump's administration must not only conduct themselves directly opposed to the previous thugs, but blast the difference in the ear of the media to show the difference pointedly to the public.

Price proved to be just another weasel in the hen house. Picks like this make Trump look like he chooses people without examination of character, and government is so damned big that it is impossible for him to properly vet people personally, the media knows it, and blames him anyway.

I don't have any confidence in the swamp draining anyway.  Even if you could drain it what would find at the bottom but more slime with stink to high heaven.

The best Trump can do is to have his administration act righteously, with honesty and honor for four, possibly eight, years and then it will be game on again in spite of the short respite.

Meanwhile, the world worsens daily under the influence of pure evil that only God can clean up.

The Good News is that He will do just that.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
