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.
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
Gov. Cuomo wants to take firearms from people who engage in domestic violence — the first step in a plan to address victimization of women. His proposal would close a loophole in current law that allows people convicted of misdemeanor abuse, but not felonies, to keep their weapons. “In nine of the 10 deadliest mass shootings in United States history, including Las Vegas . . . the shooter had an existing record of committing violence against women, threatening violence against women or harassing or disparaging women,” the governor said. He added that firearms were used in 25 domestic homicides in
The One World Trade Center’s 408-foot spire will be lit red, white, and blue Monday evening, following an attempted terrorist attack in Manhattan Monday morning. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called for the spire to be illuminated to recognize New York principles and “freedom and democracy.” “Tonight, I am directing the World Trade Center spire to be lit in red, white, and blue as a symbol of our essential values of freedom and democracy, a bright spire showing the world that those core principles will always shine brightly in New York,” Cuomo said in a statement.
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced Wednesday that it has adopted its first code of conduct for its 8,427 members. Film academy chief executive Dawn Hudson introduced the new rules to members in an email. In October, the academy broke with tradition and made Harvey Weinstein just the second person ever expelled from the Oscars’ governing body. The new code of conduct stipulates that the academy is no place for “people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates standards of decency.” The academy’s board may now suspend or expel those who violate
Democratic congressman John Conyers reportedly sexually harassed a female staffer — leading to a wrongful termination settlement in 2015 that essentially silenced his accuser. Conyers, the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, is accused of repeatedly making sexual advances to female staffers, according to BuzzFeed. One woman filed a complaint in 2014 claiming she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.” The woman signed a confidentiality agreement in exchange for a $27,111.75 settlement, the website said. Conyers did not admit fault as part of the settlement. Some of the allegations in the complaint obtained by
NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), no doubt gearing up to run for president in 2020, became unhinged during Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.Booker glared crazily at Nielsen as he smashed his fists in protest of President Trump’s alleged “S***hole,” comments made during a meeting with Democrats on DACA. (Photo/Tweet/Video) Daily Caller published a partial transcript of Booker’s tirade: “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting. “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss
On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise. Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and
Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up
WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher. "I don´t see any
From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) on Monday threw his support behind former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is reportedly weighing a Senate run in Utah. Mitt would make a phenomenal addition to the U.S. Senate. I hope he runs. https://t.co/3Vcg6txQmN — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) January 15, 2018 Bush´s endorsement on Twitter comes shortly after Romney criticized President Trump for reportedly describing African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week.
Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.
The sign at Costco explaining the jacked up price of a case of Gatorade has gone viral. (Photo/Tweet) On January 1, Seattle had several new progressive laws go into effect. Along with mandatory paid sick leave, mandates for employers to post work schedules 14 days in advance, and severe restrictions on short-term rental platforms (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.), Seattle imposed a massive new soda tax — 1.75 cents per OUNCE on sugary drinks.In response, at least one major retailer advertised in detail the reason for the significant increase in prices. Costco, famous for selling products in bulk quantities, faces especially stiff
