President Trump lashed out on Twitter against the Florida congresswoman who said he told a soldier’s widow that her husband “must’ve known what he signed up for,’ saying she “fabricated” the account. “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” Trump wrote on the social messaging site on Tuesday. Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Democrat, said she was riding in the car with Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger along with three other comrades, when she got
Comments: I don´t know what´s more astonishing: The lengths to which Democrats will lie to disparage Trump, or that her constituents will believe her, no matter the proof. Just like Hands up - don´t shoot.
What business is it of this "Representative" to characterize what the President said and how it was received. This is another example of using families of the fallen for political reasons. The Democrats view them as "useful idiots."
That was a statement from the kenyan formerly squatting in our White House when the question of pay, medical care, and other compensation came up for our armed service members.
BTW, the SEALs, SF, Delta Force, any service member, knows what he or she is signing up for and they are to be commended for their courage. If POTUS Trump said anything resembling the remarks being criticized, it would have been in the vain of commending that courageous spirit.
Ms. Wilson will lie and get her friends to Swear to it. That´s the way they work. I would bet there wasn´t anyone else in that Car, but after Ms. Wilson finished speaking, there were at least two more people in the car, maybe even 10 more! They will ALL swear they heard the President say that! Hope he DOES retain all of his calls. Otherwise these Yapping Women will be all over TV smearing him!
As soon as we saw the pictures, we knew what is going on. Some people are Democrats before anything or anyone else. They will lie over their own child’s grave if it hurts President Trump. The Congresswoman — well, it is what it is.
If you are going to lie about our President, make it believable you idiots! This does NOT sound at all like something he would say. He honors the military. Evil people even in Gold Star families to lie like that... Sad is right.
Seven members of a cable TV crew were arrested at Newark Airport on Thursday after trying to film themselves passing a fake explosive device through a security checkpoint and onto a plane, according to reports. The crew was working for the cable network CNBC, according to nj.com. The fake explosive device was in a carry-on bag and never made it past security, Transportation Security Administration spokesman Michael McCarthy said. “They failed, were caught and were arrested on multiple charges,” he said, without elaborating on the charges. The crew members could also be assessed civil penalties in the tens of thousands
Pope Francis on Thursday accused clerical sex abuse victims in Chile of slander — just days after meeting with survivors and asking for forgiveness, according to reports. The shocking assertion came while he was speaking to reporters in Iquique about Bishop Juan Barros, who has been accused of covering up sex crimes committed by Rev. Fernando Karadima, the nation’s most notorious pedophile. “There is not one shred of proof against him. It’s all calumny,” Francis said in defense of Barros. “The day they bring me proof against Bishop Barros, I’ll speak,” he added. The comments left reporters and residents stunned,
Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact
Most women would need to draw the line at two drinks, and men at two or three if states follow a blueprint by a prestigious scientific panel for eliminating the “entirely preventable” 10,000 alcohol-impaired driving deaths in the United States each year. The U.S. government-commissioned report by a panel of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine made multiple recommendations, including significantly lowering drunken driving thresholds. It calls for lowering the blood-alcohol concentration threshold from 0.08 to 0.05. All states have 0.08 thresholds. A Utah law passed last year that lowers the state’s threshold to 0.05 doesn’t go into
A former CIA officer has been arrested and charged with illegally retaining classified records, including names and phone numbers of covert CIA assets. Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, was arrested Monday night after arriving at JFK International Airport. He made an initial appearance Tuesday in federal court in New York, but will face charges in northern Virginia, where the CIA is located. According to court documents, Lee, a Hong Kong resident, served in the CIA from 1994 to 2007 as a case officer. He worked in a variety of overseas offices and was trained in surveillance detection, recruiting and handling
A reckless driver, zooming through Times Square so fast that the tires of his sportscar were smoking, struck and dragged a cop who tried to stop him, dramatic video footage shows. The disturbing incident — caught entirely on film — unfolded in front of the NYPD substation at West 43rd Street as the black Mercedes-Benz C63 with New York tags roared down Seventh Avenue, doing donuts in the street, around 11:45 p.m. Saturday, authorities said. The police officer — identified by law enforcement sources as 26-year-old Ian Wallace — can be seen sprinting in front of the car with his
A Democrat-backed study meant to expose illicit online gun sales instead seemed to show the opposite -- with hardly any sellers taking the bait when undercover investigators tried to set up dozens of illegal firearm transactions. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., as well as Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, had commissioned the Government Accountability Office report to look into how online private dealers might be selling guns to people not allowed to have them. Their efforts were based on a 2016 report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which claimed that “anonymity of the
The Trump administration will end temporary legal immigration status for 200,000 Salvadorans who have been living in the U.S. for nearly two decades, the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday. Salvadorans who currently have Temporary Protected Status (TPS) must return to their homeland by September 2019 or become undocumented immigrants if they remain without legal protections. Salvadorans were first granted TPS in 2001 after a pair of devastating earthquakes that killed nearly 1,000 people and destroyed more than 100,000 homes in the Central American country. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen concluded that El Salvador has rebuilt and recovered enough so
President Trump is given to lurid rhetoric, and in the MS-13 gang he has finally met a subject beyond his ability to exaggerate. He calls members of the largely Salvadoran gang “animals.” He charges them with “spreading gruesome bloodshed.” He says “they kidnap, they extort, they rape and they rob, they prey on children.” And, finally, he insists that “they shouldn’t be here.” He’s right on every count. If there’s any aspect of the Trump immigration agenda that should command universal support, it’s his crackdown on an immigrant gang whose motto is “murder, rape and control,” and whose signature weapon
Guests at several Walt Disney World resorts will experience tightened security and revised safety policies in the coming weeks. Disney has already implemented changes at the Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Contemporary resorts near the Magic Kingdom, which include the removal of ´Do Not Disturb´ signs. The signs have been replaced with ´Room Occupied´ messages that will tell employees that guests are currently inside the room, but will not stop maintenance and staff from entering. The new policies are to ensure ´the safety and security of guests and property,´ according to the Walt Disney World News Today.
There’s one sure way for Mayor de Blasio to get better press coverage — own the press. The mayor said he’s open to the idea of the city investing in a media outlet that would cover the city. “I think it’s a really good question and one that intrigues me and one that I’d be open in seeing the city invest in,” de Blasio said last week during a closed-door Q&A with reporters laid off by local news sites DNAinfo and Gothamist. “Publicly sponsored, with appropriate grounds,” he added. “The BBC model, not always perfect, but in the best sense
The city of Memphis took down Confederate statues that stood in two public parks on Wednesday — after selling the spaces to a nonprofit organization in order to avoid an arcane legal battle. Memphis mayor Jim Strickland explained the legal maneuver in a statement that hailed the removal of the Nathan Bedford Forrest and Jefferson Davis statues. “The statues no longer represent who we are as a modern, diverse city with momentum,” he said in a statement. “The Forrest statue was placed in 1904, as Jim Crow segregation laws were enacted. The Davis statue was placed in 1964, as the
A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive
After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in
Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a
Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do
The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C. (Photo) Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned the release of the FISA report will destroy the image of his former boss Barack Obama.“Take it to
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
Former FBI director James B. Comey is joining the faculty of his alma mater, the College of William & Mary, and plans to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington center starting in the fall. Comey, whom President Trump fired last year, will have a nontenured position as an executive professor in education, the school announced Friday. His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.
During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as
Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
For the second time in less than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida, and this time, cops say, he threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer´s wife. Anderson, 24, who was arrested at around 2:15am for going 105 miles-per-hour in a 45 zone, was placed in the back of the police vehicle and ´stated that when he got out he was going to find (the officer´s) wife, f--k her and n-t in her eye,´ according to the the police report with the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. According to the Daily News, the police
