An independent investigation by the committee of inspectors general has concluded in a scathing report that Laura Wertheimer, the inspector general of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), “abused her authority” and undermined the integrity of her office by retaliating against employees who cooperated with a congressional investigation. The Integrity Committee, as the special panel is known, found that Wertheimer, who was appointed by then-President Obama in 2014, created and fostered “a culture of abuse and intimidation for her staff” focused on employees who cooperated with a congressional oversight investigation. The allegations stem from a Republican investigation into whether Wertheimer sought to hamstring audits of the Federal Housing Finance Agency at the behest of its former director, Mel Watt Melvin (Mel) Luther Watt Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reform should put American taxpayers first Watchdog: Former Rep. Mel Watt attempted to 'coerce' employee into … [Read more...] about Report finds federal housing agency official ‘abused her authority’

A little boy in Minnesota recently enjoyed his first day of school after spending months in the hospital battling cancer. Nathan Herber was four-years-old when doctors diagnosed him with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2018 and had to leave his school in Rochester for treatment at the Mayo Clinic, ABC News reported Tuesday. The illness “is cancer that originates in your lymphatic system, the disease-fighting network spread throughout your body. In non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, tumors develop from lymphocytes — a type of white blood cell,” the clinic’s website said. Following 900 days of enduring treatment, doing online school, and being on life support at one point, Nathan is back with his friends. As they drove through the parking lot at St. Francis of Assisi School, hundreds of students cheered, waved signs, and shouted “Nathan, Nathan!” Rochester Catholic Schools shared photos of the event on its Facebook page, showing Nathan grinning from inside his van and children holding … [Read more...] about WATCH – Students Welcome Six-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Back to School: ‘Our Hero’

Many of our readers will now be aware of Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ recent permanent suspension from Twitter . Twitter claims to be an unbiased platform, open to all voices. Yet the company’s CEO is far from neutral, and his attitudes regularly seep down into Twitter’s policies. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s political biases have been prevalent on the platform for years, constantly bending the social media services rules for those whose political views align with his own, while harshly punishing their political opponents. A perfect example of this is Twitters open support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Jack Dorsey enjoys a remarkably close relationship with leading Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson. Dorsey and McKesson have been close friends for years now, with Twitter even directly donating to McKesson’s failed Baltimore mayoral campaign. More recently, the pair shared the stage at Recode’s annual tech conference, conducting a … [Read more...] about Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Is In Bed With DeRay Mckesson
Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here's what you need to know as you start your day 'God' left out of Biden's National Day of Prayer proclamation Both former presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump mentioned "God" in their National Day of Prayer proclamations, but Biden's proclamation never mentions God, only Americans' "many religions and belief systems" and the "power of prayer." Video "Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope and guidance," Biden's proclamation reads. "Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements – including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed." Meanwhile, Trump's 2017 proclamation mentioned God five times, his 2018 proclamation … [Read more...] about Biden omits ‘God’ from National Day of Prayer proclamation
