Black Congresswoman Demands Trump Apology, Calls Niger his Benghazi

FREDERICA WILSON. THE CONGRESSLADY WANTS AN APOLOGY FROM THE POTUS.

President Donald Trump finds himself in the middle of another feud. This time with a colored lady who wears big cowboy hats.

Setting aside the Trump-Wilson feud, McCain, Graham, and Schumer have finally met a war they don’t like–Niger. They had no idea that Americans were stationed there. Or so they say.

Just so Larry, Moe and Curly know, it was Obama who sent American troops to Niger to fight jihadists.

It looks like a joint effort is shaping up between Democrats and the Republican establishment to pin the deaths of four American soldiers on the enemy–the enemy being Trump, not the actual shooters, aka ISIS.

The story of the American mission in Niger is told concisely at NRO. You may want to read it to fill in the gaps.

The Guardian

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson on Sunday demanded an apology from Donald Trump’s White House for false statements made about her by senior officials, as the president continued to attack the Florida Democrat.

Wilson declared that the deadly ambush of US forces in Niger at the heart of their dispute was Trump’s equivalent of the deadly 2011 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, over which Republicans in Congress pursued Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state when the attack happened.

Senators from both parties urged the administration to release more information about the Niger incident, which happened on 4 October and in which four Americans were killed.

Wilson said John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, had smeared her after she criticised Trump’s handling of a condolence call to the family of one of the soldiers killed in the ambush.

“General Kelly owes the nation an apology because when he lied about me, he lied to the American public,” Wilson said on Twitter.

Kelly on Thursday falsely accused Wilson of using a 2015 speech at the unveiling of a new FBI building in Florida to boast about securing federal money for her district. Video footage of the speech showed Wilson had in fact praised a bipartisan effort to name the complex after two agents killed on duty.

GENERAL KELLY. NO APOLOGY SO FAR.

Instead of acknowledging Kelly’s error, the White House falsely suggested that the video had supported his remarks. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, dismissed Wilson – who is known in Congress for her colourful stetsons – as being “all hat, no cattle”.

The quarrel began when Wilson disclosed Trump had told Sgt La David Johnson’s grieving widow that the green beret “knew what he signed up for” before being killed by insurgents in Niger. Wilson, a friend of Johnson’s family, had been invited to join them to listen to the president’s call.

Trump repeatedly denied making the comment and said he had proof Wilson’s claim was untrue. After Trump failed to produce such proof, Kelly appeared to confirm Wilson’s account of the call in his remarks on Thursday at the White House, even while condemning her for making it public.

Trump on Sunday morning posted his fifth tweet criticising Wilson. “Wacky Congresswoman Wilson is the gift that keeps on giving for the Republican Party, a disaster for Dems,” he wrote. “You watch her in action & vote R!”

The dispute has revived wider concerns about the fatal incident – in which the US soldiers were killed during an attack on their convoy and five Nigerien soldiers also died – and about America’s role in anti-terror efforts in the west African state. Authorities suspect militants affiliated to the Islamic State were responsible for the ambush. Sgt Johnson was buried in Florida on Saturday.

Conflicting accounts of what led to the attack given by US and Nigerien officials have led members of Congress including John McCain, the Republican chair of the Senate armed services committee, to criticise the Pentagon’s response.

Senator James Lankford, Republican of Oklahoma, said on Sunday he shared concerns over the contradicting narratives. “At this point we have conflicting stories,” Lankford said on CBS’s Face The Nation. “We want to be able to get the full, accurate story and get it right.”

Lankford’s sentiments were echoed by Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, and Senator Charles Schumer, a Democrat of New York.

“I didn’t know there was 1,000 troops in Niger,” Graham said on NBC’s Meet the Press. “This is an endless war without boundaries and no limitation on time and geography … You’ve got to tell us more and [McCain] is right to say that.”

Schumer, the Senate minority leader, said he was similarly unaware. Schumer said information being provided by the Trump administration was “not adequate” and should be re-examined.

“We need to look at this carefully,” Schumer told NBC. “This is a brave new world. There are no set battle plans.”

Here’s a question for you. Are there ever circumstances in which a white man, say General Kelly, should apologize to a black female?

Pat Buchanan Advises Trump to Put American Workers First

TRUMP’S NEW “FRIENDS” PUT WETBACKS FIRST.

Build the wall, get the illegals out of the country–all them, and reform legal immigration.

Pat Buchanan has some simple advice for Donald Trump, laid out at the end of this post in Pat’s words.

Pat saw his idol Richard Nixon kicked around by the establishment the way that Trump is also being kicked around. We know how that ended. Pat sees no hope that Trump can buy the goodwill of his enemies by playing nice.

“Having cut a deal with Democrats for help with the debt ceiling, will Trump seek a deal with Democrats on amnesty for the ‘Dreamers’ in return for funding for border security?”

The answer to that question, raised in my column a week ago, is in. Last night, President Donald Trump cut a deal with “Chuck and Nancy” for amnesty for 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program who came here illegally as youngsters, in return for Democratic votes for more money for border security.

According to preening Minority Leader Pelosi, the agreement contains not a dime for Trump’s Wall, and the “Dreamers” are to be put on a long glide “path to U.S. citizenship.”

Trump denies this is amnesty, and says the Wall comes later.

Fallout? Among the most enthusiastic of Trump backers, disbelief, disillusionment and wonderment at where we go from here.

#NaziBucketChallenge: Trump’s Embrace of “Dreamer” Amnesty Wins Him No Friends Among Liberals

YEP, THAT’S A NAZI FOR YOU.

President Donald Trump lost his base when he stopped talking tough about Obama’s so-called Dreamers. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t pick up support from the American liberal, whose hatred of the “Orange cheeto” knows no limits.

I’m not sure of the origins of the Twitter hashtage #NaziBucketChallenge, but it’s #1 trending on Twitter this Friday morning.

It’s actually a pretty simple theme:

One of the things I learned from Microchip (who seems to have disappeared from Twitter after his latest ban) is that Twitter pushes certain hashtags into trending when they don’t deserve it.

Microchip also was aware that not all Tweets are created by real humans.

None of these Tweets make any sense to anyone who’s not mental. It would be great if Donald Trump were a White Supremacist, but he’s not. From his friendships with Oprah, Mike Tyson, Omarosa and other blacks, he’s proven that he’s a race mixer.

All of these Tweets, the real ones anyway, are just self-hating whites and nonwhites expressing their desire to see the white race exterminated in an orgy of white genocide.

If President Trump thought that his outreach to Democrats to amnesty millions of Dreamers and their relatives would win him fans among liberals, he miscalculated.

Trump Treason? Alleged Deal with Democrats Allows “Dreamers ” to Stay

UNPINNED 9/14/2017. PINNED TO THE TOP OF THE HOMEPAGE. SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWEST POSTS.

There’s significant disagreement about the breaking news that President Trump has struck a deal with Democrats to amnesty what would appear to be 800,000 so-called Dreamers. In reality, once they have amnesty, the door opens for millions more via a court ruling.

Here’s the story from the AP, followed by some views that claim that Trump has betrayed his base, with others dissenting.

All I can say is that if Trump has struck a deal with the swamp creatures that goes soft on DACA, I’d be shocked.

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top House and Senate Democrats said Wednesday they had reached agreement with President Donald Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements — not including Trump’s long-sought border wall.

The agreement, the latest instance of Trump ditching his own party to make common cause with the opposition, was announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner that Republican lawmakers weren’t invited to attend. It would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which provided temporary work permits and shielded recipients from deportation.

Trump ended the program earlier this month and gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the statuses of the so-called “Dreamers” begin to expire.

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders partially disputed their characterization, saying over Twitter that “excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.”

Either way, it was the second time in two weeks that Trump cut out Republicans to reach a deal with Pelosi and Schumer. A person briefed on the meeting, who demanded anonymity to discuss it, said the deal specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for the young immigrants.

House Republicans would normally rebel over such an approach, which many view as amnesty for law-breakers. It remains to be seen how conservatives’ loyalty to Trump will affect their response to a policy they would have opposed under other circumstances.

The House’s foremost immigration hardliner, GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, made clear that he, for one, was not happy.

Addressing Trump over Twitter, King wrote that if the reports were true, “Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.”

Earlier Wednesday, during a White House meeting with moderate House members from both parties, Trump had urged lawmakers to come up with a bipartisan solution for the “Dreamers.”

“We don’t want to forget DACA,” Trump told the members at the meeting. “We want to see if we can do something in a bipartisan fashion so that we can solve the DACA problem and other immigration problems.”

Foreshadowing what was to take place later that evening, Trump said he would be open to separating the wall issue from the question of the younger immigrants, as long as the wall got dealt with eventually.

At Thursday night’s dinner, “the president was clear he would press for the wall but separate from this agreement,” said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill.

The apparent deal is the latest example of Trump’s sudden pivot to bipartisanship after months of railing against Democrats as “obstructionist.” He has also urged them to join him in overhauling the nation’s tax code, among other priorities.

Flashback re Comey Firing: When Bill Clinton Fired FBI Director William S. Sessions (1993)

STEFAN MOLYNEAUX INTERVIEWS MIKE CERNOVICH ON COMEY’S TERMINATION.

The (((establishment))) has its panties in a wad over President Donald Trump’s Tuesday afternoon firing of FBI Director James Comey.

In this post, we’ll go back in time to look over President Bill Clinton’s termination of his Republican FBI Director, William S. Sessions. We’ll also take a look at some of the reaction to Comey’s firing.

Reminder: Just a week ago, Comey was the demon from Hell to the Democrat party in the United States. With his firing, the jackass party has launched a major offensive against the Trump presidency, treating Comey as a martyr, done in by the evil Nazi in the White House.

One commenter at Zerohedge weighed in on the firing of Director Comey by suggesting that the fear of God be put into the usual suspects by making Joe Arpaio the new Director. Another noted that the Assistant Director Andrew McCabe is as crooked as Comey and should go too.

WASHINGTON, July 19— President Clinton today dismissed William S. Sessions, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who had stubbornly rejected an Administration ultimatum to resign six months after a harsh internal ethics report on his conduct.

Mr. Clinton said he would announce his nominee to replace Mr. Sessions on Tuesday. He was expected to pick Judge Louis J. Freeh of Federal District Court in Manhattan; officials said Judge Freeh had impressed Mr. Clinton favorably on Friday at their first meeting.

Mr. Clinton, explaining his reasons for removing Mr. Sessions, effective immediately, said, “We cannot have a leadership vacuum at an agency as important to the United States as the F.B.I. It is time that this difficult chapter in the agency’s history is brought to a close.” Defiant to the End

But in a parting news conference at F.B.I. headquarters after Mr. Clinton’s announcement, a defiant Mr. Sessions — his right arm in a sling as a result of a weekend fall — railed at what he called the unfairness of his removal, which comes nearly six years into his 10-year term.

“Because of the scurrilous attacks on me and my wife of 42 years, it has been decided by others that I can no longer be as forceful as I need to be in leading the F.B.I. and carrying out my responsibilities to the bureau and the nation,” he said. “It is because I believe in the principle of an independent F.B.I. that I have refused to voluntarily resign.”

Mr. Clinton said that after reviewing Mr. Sessions’s performance, Attorney General Janet Reno had advised him that Mr. Sessions should go. “After a thorough review by the Attorney General of Mr. Sessions’s leadership of the F.B.I., she has reported to me in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the bureau.”

Despite the President’s severe tone, he seemed to regret having to force Mr. Sessions from his post. He said he had hoped that the issue could be settled at the Justice Department without the necessity of using his authority to dismiss the Director, who has a 10-year term but may be removed by the President at any time.

But Mr. Sessions’s intransigence had festered into an awkward situation for Mr. Clinton.

A Republican stranded in a Democratic Administration, Mr. Sessions was appointed to head the F.B.I. by President Ronald Reagan in 1987 amid the turmoil of the Iran-contra affair. Mr. Sessions arrived as a respected judge from San Antonio, but after five and a half years in office, he leaves with his star fallen, his agency adrift and his support at the F.B.I. all but drained away. Troubled Tenure

He served under four Attorneys General, and each complained privately about his absentee management style, his frequent traveling — often to unimportant events — and his inability to take command.

During Mr. Sessions’s tenure, the F.B.I. has struggled to redefine its mission, which has shifted focus dramatically with the collapse of the Soviet empire.
