Paul Ryan Budget Cuts is an email that has been circulating since 2012 when the Wisconsin Congressman was the GOP’s vice presidential nominee.
It explains how $2.5 trillion could be shaved off the federal budget over 10 years. The reasoning is based on H.R. 408 of 2011 and is basically correct. It should be noted though that Ryan, who is now Speaker of the House, was just a among the co-sponsors of the bill.
Here is the email Paul Ryan Budget Cuts with a hat tip to Judy McGrane:

This Off The Internet is courtesy of Rick Lozinak. Is it true? While CIA Director Brennan and Ms. Jarrett are unlikely Muslims, the rest most certainly are. Note especially the troubling background of Huma Abedin.
Understand why Obama refuses to say the words “radical Islam.”
We now have a Muslim government .
John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia.
Obama ‘s top advisor, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.
Hillary Clinton’s top advisor, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim.
Homeland Security Advisor, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.
Obama advisor and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.
Obama ‘s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim.
Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim.
1/13/15: Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint Rep Andre Carson, D-Ind, as the first Muslim lawmaker on the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has he suggested that U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran!!!
And last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.
It’s questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he was sworn in. He didn’t repeat the oath properly to defend our nation and our Constitution. Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again in private?
CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible.
Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an
Congresswoman Michele Bachman was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government.
Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East.
The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!
Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us. It can only get worse!
If you fail to pass this one on, there’s something wrong … Somewhere!
In his book he said, “….if it comes down to it, I would go with the Muslims.”
The below off the internet is courtesy of Judy McGrane. Various “fact checkers” have taken issue with this pointing out that Mrs. Clinton will not receive her full Senate salary, about $160,000, but just 13.6 percent of it, and that if she should die her husband would only be entitled to half of that.
Further, while they are entitled to $1,100 monthly rent payments — not $10,000 — for their Secret Service contingent, they have said that they are waiving the fee.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator now comes under this fancy “congressional retirement staffing plan” which means that if she never gets re-elected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies.
If Bill out-lives her, he then inherits HER salary until he dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary ($20,000 a month) until he dies. If Hillary out-lives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies! Guess who pays for that? WE DO!
Clinton’s 20 Acre – $11 million mansion is common knowledge. For her to establish NY residency, they purchased this mansion in upscale Chappaqua, New York. Makes sense. They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense.
Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments are around $10,000/month. But an extra residence had to be built by the government on the acreage to house the Secret Service Agents. Any improvement to the property is owned by the property owners… the Clinton’s. So… the Clinton’s charge the federal government $10,000 monthly rent for the use of the extra residence to house the Secret Service staff which is just about equal to their mortgage payment. He is the ONLY ex-president to use this loophole, thus earning the name ‘Slick Willie’.
This means that we, the taxpayers, pay the Clinton’s, salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security as well as the salaries for their 12 man staff, and it is all perfectly legal. AND DON’T FORGET HIS GOVERNOR’S PENSION AND HER SECRETARY OF STATE PENSION…
When she runs for President, will you vote for her?
The warning regarding #90 that has been circulating since the dawn of the world wide web remains with us.
It contains a nugget of truth but it doesn’t effect most telephones including cellphones.
Here is the claim we have been asked to investigate by Judy M.
90# on your telephone I dialed ‘0’ to check this out, and the operator confirmed that this was correct, so please pass it on.. (l also checked out snopes.com and truthorfiction.com This is true, and also applies to cell phones!) PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW I received a telephone call last evening from an individual identifying himself as an AT&T Service Technician (could also be Telus) who was conducting a test on the telephone lines. He stated that to complete the test I should touch nine (9), zero (0), the pound sign (#), and then hang up. Luckily, I was suspicious and refused. Upon contacting the telephone company, I was informed that by pushing 90#, you give the requesting individual full access to your telephone line, which enables them to place long distance calls billed to your home phone number. I was further informed that this scam has been originating from many local jails/prisons. DO NOT press 90# for ANYONE… After checking with Verizon they also said it was true, so do not dial 90# for anyone !!!!! PLEASE HIT THAT FORWARD BUTTON AND PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!!
Was Hillary Clinton fired from the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigations due to dishonesty i.e. being a “liar” i.e “an unethical, dishonest lawyer” who “conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the Committee , and the rules of confidentiality” according to her then boss life-long Democrat Jerry Zeifman?
The below is being sent around the internet:
Is it true? Well Snopes.com — the protector of Democrats and self-proclaimed debunker of the World Wide Web — says no.
It sounds to us, though, that they are grasping at straws.
If it’s on the internet it must be true, is the punchline to a joke that is taken to heart much too rarely.
This story about an Ebola-caused quarantine of Purdon, Texas got 340,000 Facebook shares, reports TheVerge.com.
It is entirely made up.
NationalReport.net, the perpetrator of the hoax, calls itself a satirical site — when caught anyway. There is nothing to indicate it as such on the pages it publishes.
And there is nothing funny about its content i.e. Those who had immediate contact with the infected parties, including several children who shared classes at a local elementary school, have all reportedly been transported to the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where they are being closely monitored for signs of illness.
Ho ho ho.
It’s no different than the town jackass phoning in a false fire report to get himself some attention.
NationalReport deserves attention and publicity. The entire world should know that it is the town jackass of the internet. Those affiliated with it should know that it is best to leave off of their resumes any connection to it when seeking new employment.
How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night.
Heart Attack and Water – I never knew all of this ! Interesting…….
Something else I didn’t know … I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor – Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water…
Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body
2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack
I can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.
Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).
Please read on…
Something that we can do to help ourselves – nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It’s about Heart Attacks.
There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards: – Call 911. – Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say “heart attack!” – Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and …DO NOT LIE DOWN!
A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved!

Slandering Walt Disney — This is for 17-year-old Florida girls who may not understand that the trashing of American icons in their history classes stems from seeds planted long before they were born by not so nice people
Not even the saints were perfect, but Walt Disney fares better than most of us which maybe explains why he became a target of the haters in his prime and still remains such almost five decades after his death.
Here is what he said to a newspaper columnist in 1941 in response to lies printed against and which can be found on Page 170 of Bob Thomas’s Walt Disney: An American Original.
This interesting item off the internet is mostly untrue or taken out of context. While Obama has not held a White House observation of National Day of Prayer, unlike the Reagan and both Bush administrations, neither did Clinton. There was never a Muslim Day of Prayer event at the White House and Obama did not participate in the one on Capitol Hill that was organized privately. The quote “We are no longer a Christian nation” appears to be a bastardization of a statement he made in Turkey in which he said “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Jewish Nation or a Muslim Nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”
With that said Obama remains an arrogant incompetent and those who voted for him should hang their heads in collective shame.
When we get 100,000,000, that’s one hundred million willing Americans together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America with God’s help,
Become one of the 100 million, then let’s get 200 million. It can be done by sending this email to your friends. Do the math. It only takes a willing heart and a fed up soul. God Bless America and Shine your light on Her..
In 1952 President Truman established one day a year as a “National Day of Prayer.”
In 1988 President Reagan designated the First Thursday in May as the National Day of Prayer.
In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA “Was no longer a Christian nation.”
This year President Obama canceled the 21st Annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse Of “not wanting to offend anyone”
BUT on Sept. 25, 2009 from 4 a.m. until 7 p.m., a National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION was Held on Capitol Hill, Beside the White House.
There were over 50,000 Muslims in D.C. that day. HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS! I guess it Doesn’t matter if “Christians” Are offended by this event – We obviously Don’t count as “anyone” Anymore. The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated. This is not a Rumor – Go to the website To confirm this info: www.islamoncapitolhill.com Send this to ten people and the person who sent it to you!… to let them know that indeed, it was sent out to many more — in GOD we Trust
