What is the Tunnel Wall?

.........................A timely collection of conservative articles about corrosive liberal influences on politics and culture in America. Once a no-Trumper, the Tunnel Dweller is keenly aware that this most effective President is all that stands between us and our being ruled by those who have contempt for our nation and her history. This is NOT my father's Democrat Party and we must fear it as we once feared the Soviet Union. ......................

Ben Carson scolds Maxine Waters: 'Basic manners elude you'

 "Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you're more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President's expense — like a true career politician."

The Blaze:  The HUD secretary did not mince words
"Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson gave a scolding to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Monday, accusing her of caring more about show-boating than working to addressing homelessness in her district and telling the congresswoman: "Basic manners elude you."

What are the details?

"My mother always taught me that people shouldn't throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house," Carson wrote to Waters in a letter obtained by Politico. "Because of that wise lesson, I was a little surprised to read your hostile letter to President [Donald] Trump regarding the record number of homeless Americans in California, particularly in your district."
"Sec. Carson was reacting to a letter Rep. Waters wrote President Trump last month, where she told the president, "Your shamelessness knows no bounds," demanding details on his administration's "reported plans to unilaterally demolish homeless tent camps and relocate homeless individuals to federally-owned facilities."
"Shamelessness is a career politician of 30 years laying blame," Carson wrote in response. "Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent."
"The HUD chief went on to defend the Trump administration's plans by saying, "To me, the most compassionate, obvious, and logical solution would be to get as many homeless Americans off the streets — with a roof over their heads — as soon as humanly possible."

" 'I have sent multiple letters to your office and requested numerous meetings, but each time you've refused," Carson continued. "Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you're more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President's expense — like a true career politician.'
