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.

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?

McCain Condemns Wealthy Draft Dodgers, Apparently Meaning Trump

As Senator John McCain faces a looming date with the grim reaper, he’s still unable or unwilling to control his legendary mean-tempered personality.

McCain is a little man in so many ways.

Yahoo

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) appeared to heap more criticism on President Donald Trump during an interview on Sunday, saying it was “wrong” for high-income Americans to dodge the draft during the Vietnam War.

“One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said during a segment on the draft that aired on C-SPAN 3 on Sunday. “That is wrong. That is wrong. If we’re going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.”

While the senator’s comments didn’t directly reference Trump, the president is widely known to have received five deferments from the draft during the Vietnam War, four for education and one for bone spurs in his heels.

The New York Times obtained the president’s Selective Service records last August, and during an interview at the time Trump said the spurs had been “temporary” and “minor” and that over time, they “healed up.”

“They were spurs,” he told the outlet, although he noted that they were “enough of a problem.” He continued: “You know, it was difficult from the long-term walking standpoint.”

McCain served in Vietnam and was a prisoner of war for more than five years after his aircraft was shot down, during which he was tortured and held in solitary confinement.

Trump lambasted the senator during his presidential campaign last year, saying McCain was “not a war hero.”

“I like people that weren’t captured,” he said.

McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in July, has amped up his criticism against the White House and members of his own party in recent months.

Last week, the senator used an acceptance speech for an award honoring his 60-year career in public service to slam what he called “half-baked, spurious nationalism” that had arisen in America following last year’s presidential election.

“We live in a land made of ideals, not ‘blood and soil,’” McCain said during his acceptance of the prestigious Liberty Medal, referencing the Nazi slogan chanted at recent right-wing rallies. “We are the custodians of those ideals at home and their champion abroad. We have done great good in the world. … We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”

Trump Plans to Release Classified JFK Documents

President Trump should see to it that all documents are released on October 26. It’s reasonable to expect that back in 63 the CIA and FBI conspired to destroy at least some evidence in conflict with LBJ’s official story.

CNN offers one assassination researcher’s thoughts in their coverage. Gerald Leo Posner is a pro-semite with a Jewish father. Posner’s view is that Oswald killed Kennedy by himself.

CNN

President Donald Trump said Saturday he intends to allow the release of classified government documents about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy “subject to the receipt of further information.”

Trump’s tweet comes as he is staring down an October 26 deadline set in law by Congress mandating the public release of the still-secret documents — including FBI and CIA files — barring any action by the President to block the release of certain documents.

“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump said, appearing to leave open the possibility that some documents could still be withheld.

A White House official told reporters Saturday: “The President believes that these documents should be made available in the interests of full transparency unless agencies provide a compelling and clear national security or law enforcement justification otherwise.”

Republican members of Congress, including Senate judiciary committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, have urged Trump to allow the full release of the documents.

“No reason 2 keep hidden anymore,” Grassley tweeted earlier this month. “Time 2 let American ppl + historians draw own conclusions.”

Historians who have studied the assassination do not believe the documents will lead to any bombshell new conclusions in the Kennedy assassination, but the documents could shed more light on facets of the investigation and Oswald’s mysterious trip to Mexico City weeks before the assassination. Some have expressed concerns that the documents could be embarrassing to Mexico and damaging to US-Mexico relations.

Trump can withhold the release of certain documents if he believes their release could pose harm to US intelligence, law enforcement, the military or US foreign relations.

“There’s going to be no smoking gun in there,” Gerald Posner, the author of “Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK,” told CNN’s Michael Smerconish. “But anybody who thinks this is going to turn the case on its head and suddenly show that there were three or four shooters at Dealey Plaza — it’s not the case.”

“Oswald did it alone,” Posner continued. “But what the files are doing and why they’re important to come out is they fill in the history of the case and show us how the FBI and CIA repeatedly hid the evidence.”

Posner said that the conspiracy theories about the CIA and mob working together to assassinate a head of state are true — but the target was Cuban leader Fidel Castro, not Kennedy.

“They tried seven times and they couldn’t even wound him. … They couldn’t get rid of Castro, but somehow these same guys who were an ‘F’ there pulled off the perfect crime in Dallas, and 54 years later we can find not a shred of evidence about it. I just don’t buy it,” he said.

Ken Hughes, a presidential researcher at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, told CNN the files could shed light on the US involvement in the attempts to assassinate Castro as well as the US-approved coup of South Vietnamese leader Ngô Đình Diệm in 1963.
“There’s a lot for conventional historians — we non-conspiracy theorists — to look forward to,” he said.

Wikipedia offers a lengthy article on assassination conspiracy theories, although I cannot vouch for its accuracy or completeness. More theorizing will be happening after the document dump this week.

New York Magazine: Democrats’ Commit Political Suicide by Favoring Migrants

ANDREW SULLIVAN. THE INFLUENTIAL HOMOSEXUAL HAS CRITICIZED DEMOCRATS OPEN BORDERS MADNESS.

Breitbart

Democrats are committing political suicide by refusing to moderate their migrant-first policy agenda, says the liberal intellectual who launched the push for same-sex marriage.

Andrew Sullivan, the immigrant British-born author who championed the same-sex movement, writes in New York Magazine:

Democrats in 2017, in general, tend to criticize the use of immigration enforcement, and tend to side with those accused of violating immigration law, as a broad matter of principle beyond opposing the particular actions of the administration … Democrats are no longer as willing to attack “illegal immigration” as a fundamental problem anymore.

This is, to be blunt, political suicide … In fact, the Democrats increasingly seem to suggest that any kind of distinction between citizens and noncitizens is somehow racist. You could see this at the last [Democratic Party] convention, when an entire evening was dedicated to Latinos, illegal and legal, as if the rule of law were largely irrelevant. Hence the euphemism “undocumented” rather than “illegal.” So the stage was built, lit, and set for Trump …

The entire concept of a nation whose citizens solely determine its future — the core foundation for any viable democracy at all — is now deemed by many left-liberals to be a function of bigotry. This is the kind of madness that could keep them from power indefinitely.

Sullivan is gay but also a liberal with some respect for ordinary people and their preferences. That leaves him out on the edge of the post-2008 Democratic Party, which is controlled by post-graduate elitists who are using divide-and-rule diversity politics to impose their own tastes, status symbols and economic self-interests on all Americans.

For example, Democrats reacted with hostility and contempt towards Trump’s popular immigration principles and also spotlighted their favoritism for illegal migrants, whom they portray as “dreamers.” On October 11, Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi described Trump principles as “trash” as she appeared alongside three illegal migrants who accused the GOP leaders of supporting racist policies.

So far, business-first groups and their media allies have muted white-collar concern about the economics of immigration by hiding the impact of cheap white-collar immigration from college graduate voters.

Crooked Hillary Tried to Get Out of Going to Trump’s Inauguration

Some things are better left unsaid. Hillary Clinton’s confession that she tried to dodge attending the Trump inauguration is one of them.

If she’s in the mood to confess, why doesn’t she confess the many crimes she’s been implicated in.

Mrs. Clinton is an incredibly shallow and stupid person. Everyone knows that she’s not going to have anything good to say about the man who shockingly defeated her almost a year ago. So, just shut up.

AOL

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she tried everything to dodge President Trump’s inauguration in January.

“I really tried to get out of going,” she said on Friday’s broadcast of “The Graham Norton Show.”

Clinton explained that she had been invited not as a candidate but as a former First Lady because, traditionally, former living Presidents and First Ladies attend presidential inaugurations “to show support, continuity of our government,” Clinton said.

Clinton said she thought that if other former Presidents and their spouses planned on boycotting the event, that it might be okay for Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to do the same.

“So we called the Bushes, and the elder Bushes were in the hospital, which I think was legitimate,” Clinton said.

“Then we called the younger Bushes and they said, ‘yeah, we’re going,’ we called the Carters, and they said, ‘yeah, we’re going.’ So Bill and I looked at each other and said well we got to go.”

Despite their best efforts, the Clintons did attend Trump’s inauguration, which Clinton described as “divisive.”

Clinton said she was hopeful that Trump would “rise to the occasion of being our President and being the President for everybody, not just people who supported him.

Instead, she left the inauguration “so disappointed” after listening to Trump deliver a “really dark, divisive speech that I described as a cry from the white nationalist gust,” Clinton said, referring to a passage in her new memoir, “What Happened.”

“I was so disappointed that it wasn’t an outreach. It was a narrowing and hammering of what he had said before,” Clinton said.

She also told Norton that former President George W. Bush reportedly called Trump’s inauguration speech “some weird s–t.”

George W. Bush is a moron. He’s unable to find his way out of a paper bag. As Pat Buchanan observed, the world is increasingly rejecting Bush’s globalist vision of a borderless world dominated by the false equality that Bush preached along with his Republican establishment and Democrats.

They’re all bought and paid for by Israel. The world needs to understand that. They’ll say anything and do anything for money, fame, and power.

Negress Congresswoman at Heart of Trump Phone Call Kerfuffle Calls General Kelly a Racist and a Liar

THE HORSE MANURE FROM FREDERICA WILSON’S MOUTH SURE MADE THAT ROSE GROW.

Looks like this may be the big story of the day. This is the second post here on Frederica the Hat Lady in the last 12 hours.

The more that she keeps opening her retarded mouth, the easier it is to flip people toward race realism.

Daily Mail

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson says John Kelly lied about her behavior at the dedication of an FBI building in her state and made a ‘racist’ charge against her in the process.

Wilson says she wasn’t a Member of Congress when the money for the building was secured, so she couldn’t have ‘bragged’ about bringing home the bacon like Kelly said she did.

‘You know, I feel sorry for Gen. Kelly. He has the sympathy for the loss of his son. But he can’t just go on TV and lie on me,’ Wilson said Friday on CNN.

The Florida Democrat also accused Kelly of using a ‘racist’ epithet against her during a White House news conference on Thursday afternoon, where he compared her to an ’empty barrel.’

Wilson said that after looking it up in the dictionary, she had concluded that ’empty barrel’ is a ‘racist term.’

The White House chief of staff and the Florida congresswoman are wrapped up in a mushrooming dispute over the president’s condolence call earlier this week to a soldier’s family that Wilson says was inappropriate.

GENERAL JOHN KELLY, TRUMP’S CHIEF OF STAFF.

Wilson says that Trump told Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s pregnant widow Myeshia that her late husband ‘knew what he signed up for’ when he enlisted but ‘when it happens it hurts anyway.’

Her account of the call, which she says she just happened to be present for, has been backed up publicly by other officials and family members who were present.

LA DAVID JOHNSON, KILLED IN ACTION.

Kelly, a retired general whose own son died in combat, was in the room with Trump when the president called the grieving family on Tuesday. He suggested yesterday that Trump spoke the words in question to the Johnsons – it’s the sentiment behind the statement that’s being misconstrued.

Denouncing Wilson as ‘selfish’ in an emotional statement for listening in on the presidential condolence call in the first place, Kelly smacked the Florida lawmaker for her conduct a 2015 memorial service for two slain FBI agents in Miami-Dade.

‘And a congresswoman stood up, and in the long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there and all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call he gave the money — the $20 million — to build the building,’ Kelly said.

‘And she sat down, and we were stunned. Stunned that she had done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned,’ he added.

Kelly – himself a Gold Star parent following his son’s 2010 death in Afghanistan – delivered the stunning statement from the White House briefing room.

Between this one and Maxine Waters, you have a good case that blacks should never be allowed to vote.
