Terror: Truck Rams Pedestrians In Stockholm

A beer truck was hijacked and plowed into crowds of people outside Stockholm’s largest shopping center.  Up to three men were seen leaping from the truck and opening fire on officers and pedestrians at around 3pm.  Two suspects were filmed being arrested but a third man seen on CCTV is still on the run and hiding.  Prime minister Stefan Lofven says the truck crash “is an act of terror”.

Up to five people are believed to have been killed in a terrorist attack when a stolen truck rammed into shoppers in Stockholm before running through the city centre shooting at and stabbing pedestrians.

Three men were seen leaping from the lorry and opening fire on police who had surrounded the hijacked vehicle at around 3pm local time.

Police said the vehicle crashed into a group of people on the street outside a shopping centre after racing down six streets.

Hundreds of shoppers were seen fleeing for their lives after the articulated truck rammed into the corner of the building. Dozens were believed to have been injured.

The driver was said by witnesses to be wearing a balaclava. Two suspects are thought to have been arrested.  At least one man is believed to be on the run wearing a green jacket, white shoes and a grey hoodie. DailyMail

 

Dr. Ben Carson Finds $520 Billion In Errors During Audit of HUD

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) fixed $520 Billion in accounting errors but still could not document its spending.  HUD’s financial records are in such bad shape HUD’s Inspector General (IG) was unable to complete its audit.

Despite officials from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) correcting $520 billion in bookkeeping errors, the department’s financial records have been so poorly kept that HUD’s inspector general (IG) cannot complete an audit of them.

According to a new report from the IG, HUD officials cleaned up $3.4 billion in errors from its 2015 financial records and $516.4 billion in errors from 2016, after the IG was unable to issue an opinion on either year’s financial statements in December.  DailyCaller

The level of incompetence is amazing and shocking. HUD seems to have ignored all financial accountability practice.

The IG remained unable to issue an opinion on HUD’s financial statements even after giving the department an extension and receiving a resubmission from HUD three months later with the reported issues unresolved.

The continued problems, the IG said, “were due to an inability to establish a compliant control environment, implement adequate financial accounting systems, retain key financial staff, and identify appropriate accounting principles and policies.” DailyCaller
