Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) Laughs that She’s now a ‘Rock Star’ … What a Sick Indivual Who Thinks This is All About Her (VIDEO)
WTF … TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME … THE OPPOSITE OF OUR BRAVE, SELFLESS MILITARY
Check out the reaction below from Democrat Congresswomen Frederica Wilson following the words of former general John Kelly. She really is an “empty barrel” and a disgrace. Representative Wilson laughed. LAUGHED!!! Like this was all about her. And she called President Trump out as having no empathy? What kind of a sick human being gets their 15 minutes of fame off the death of a military soldier? This woman is a cold hearted, narcissist who is consumed with so much hate and thinks so much of herself, maybe it is she who has some mental issues. The people of Florida in your district must be so proud.
Take a good look America of the insanity and repulsive behavior that lives and thrives in the Democrat party these days. I am shocked and appalled as well that an elected official does not have the common decency to shut up and respect the sacrifice of a fallen solder.
Following Chief of Staff General John Kelly’s comments, Rep. Frederica Wilson actually had the audacity to say that Kelly only said it to keep his job. I think she must be confusing what she would do. Really, Gen. Kelly has served the United States in the military and lost his son, who also served? A note to this poor excuse of an individual, you will never know what it means to have the character of Gen. John Kelly. You really are an empty barrel.
‘The Five’ Rips ‘Shameful’ Rep. Wilson For Claiming ‘Gen. Kelly Just Wants to Keep His Job’
Bill Clinton Asked for State Department Permission to Meet with Russian Nuclear Official During Obama Uranium Decision
I AM SURE BILL CLINTON JUST WANTED TO DISCUSS HIS GRANDCHILDREN WITH THE RUSSIANS …
We have a Russian collusion scandal, but it is not what you have been lead to believe … There is yet more eye opening reporting from The Hill with regards to the real Russian corruption, bribery and interference with regards to the Clinton’s and the Obama-Russian uranium deal. As Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State during this deal, $235 million was so generously donated to the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One, former president Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock. Hmm, yeah, no quid pro quo, collusion, bribery or corruption here. Move along. Are you serious? The federal government has spend over a year looking into some Russian-Trump collusion scandal with the willing liberal media reporting at nauseam only to find there is not there, there. But there is a Russian corruption and bribery scandal with evidence, it just happens to involve Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton. Imagine that. Too bad this does not fit the liberals, LEFT’s, Hate-Trumpers and MSM’s agenda, otherwise we would have a scandal that dwarfs Watergate actually reported.
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.
The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.
Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.
“Requests of this type were run by the State Department as a matter of course. This was yet another one of those instances. Ultimately, President Clinton did not meet with these people,” Angel Urena, the official spokesperson for the former president, told The Hill.
Aides to the ex-president, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation said Bill Clinton did not have any conversations about Rosatom or the Uranium One deal while in Russia, and that no one connected to the deal was involved in the trip.
White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly Addresses Reporters & Blasts … Rep. Wilson (D-FL) for Politicizing the the Death of Sgt. La David Johnson (VIDEO) … “Appalled & Stunned” … “She is an Empty Barrel”
WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF GEN. KELLY SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT AND PUTS THE LEFT, MSM AND DEMOCRATS IN THEIR PLACE.
Words cannot describe what General Kelly said yesterday in addressing the uproar over President Trump’s comments to the widow of a fallen soldier. Please take a moment to watch and see what true class and character looks like. He was stunned and broken hearted by the actions of Rep. Wilson who politicized a sacred event. Sorry folks, this man has the honor, service and sacrifice to set the record straight. The media and the LEFT might want to think twice when you go up against true character and class.
Any response from the LEFT, Democrats, liberals or the MSM rings hollow and petty. But what would you expect from empty barrels?
JOHN F. KELLY, White House chief of staff: Well, thanks a lot. And it is a more serious note, so I just wanted to perhaps make more of a statement than an — give more of an explanation in what amounts to be a traditional press interaction.
Most Americans don’t know what happens when we lose one of soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, our Coast Guardsmen in combat. So let me tell you what happens:
Their buddies wrap them up in whatever passes as a shroud, puts them on a helicopter as a routine, and sends them home. Their first stop along the way is when they’re packed in ice, typically at the airhead. And then they’re flown to, usually, Europe where they’re then packed in ice again and flown to Dover Air Force Base, where Dover takes care of the remains, embalms them, meticulously dresses them in their uniform with the medals that they’ve earned, the emblems of their service, and then puts them on another airplane linked up with a casualty officer escort that takes them home.
A very, very good movie to watch, if you haven’t ever seen it, is “Taking Chance,” where this is done in a movie — HBO setting. Chance Phelps was killed under my command right next to me, and it’s worth seeing that if you’ve never seen it.
So that’s the process. While that’s happening, a casualty officer typically goes to the home very early in the morning and waits for the first lights to come on. And then he knocks on the door; typically a mom and dad will answer, a wife. And if there is a wife, this is happening in two different places; if the parents are divorced, three different places. And the casualty officer proceeds to break the heart of a family member and stays with that family until — well, for a long, long time, even after the internment. So that’s what happens.
Who are these young men and women? They are the best 1 percent this country produces. Most of you, as Americans, don’t know them. Many of you don’t know anyone who knows any one of them. But they are the very best this country produces, and they volunteer to protect our country when there’s nothing in our country anymore that seems to suggest that selfless service to the nation is not only appropriate, but required. But that’s all right.
Who writes letters to the families? Typically, the company commander — in my case, as a Marine — the company commander, battalion commander, regimental commander, division commander, Secretary of Defense, typically the service chief, commandant of the Marine Corps, and the President typically writes a letter.
Typically, the only phone calls a family receives are the most important phone calls they could imagine, and that is from their buddies. In my case, hours after my son was killed, his friends were calling us from Afghanistan, telling us what a great guy he was. Those are the only phone calls that really mattered.
And yeah, the letters count, to a degree, but there’s not much that really can take the edge off what a family member is going through.
So some Presidents have elected to call. All Presidents, I believe, have elected to send letters. If you elect to call a family like this, it is about the most difficult thing you could imagine. There’s no perfect way to make that phone call.
When I took this job and talked to President Trump about how to do it, my first recommendation was he not do it because it’s not the phone call that parents, family members are looking forward to. It’s nice to do, in my opinion, in any event.
He asked me about previous Presidents, and I said, I can tell you that President Obama, who was my Commander-in-Chief when I was on active duty, did not call my family. That was not a criticism. That was just to simply say, I don’t believe President Obama called. That’s not a negative thing. I don’t believe President Bush called in all cases. I don’t believe any President, particularly when the casualty rates are very, very high — that Presidents call. But I believe they all write.
So when I gave that explanation to our President three days ago, he elected to make phone calls in the cases of four young men who we lost in Niger at the earlier part of this month. But then he said, how do you make these calls? If you’re not in the family, if you’ve never worn the uniform, if you’ve never been in combat, you can’t even imagine how to make that call. I think he very bravely does make those calls.
The call in question that he made yesterday — or day before yesterday now — were to four family members, the four fallen. And remember, there’s a next-of-kin designated by the individual. If he’s married, that’s typically the spouse. If he’s not married, that’s typically the parents unless the parents are divorced, and then he selects one of them. If he didn’t get along with his parents, he’ll select a sibling. But the point is, the phone call is made to the next-of-kin only if the next-of-kin agrees to take the phone call. Sometimes they don’t.
So a pre-call is made: The President of the United States or the commandant of the Marine Corps, or someone would like to call, will you accept the call? And typically, they all accept the call.
So he called four people the other day and expressed his condolences in the best way that he could. And he said to me, what do I say? I said to him, sir, there’s nothing you can do to lighten the burden on these families.
Well, let me tell you what I told him. Let me tell you what my best friend, Joe Dunford, told me — because he was my casualty officer. He said, Kel, he was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed. He knew what he was getting into by joining that 1 percent. He knew what the possibilities were because we’re at war. And when he died, in the four cases we’re talking about, Niger, and my son’s case in Afghanistan — when he died, he was surrounded by the best men on this Earth: his friends.
That’s what the President tried to say to four families the other day. I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning, and brokenhearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing. A member of Congress who listened in on a phone call from the President of the United States to a young wife, and in his way tried to express that opinion — that he’s a brave man, a fallen hero, he knew what he was getting himself into because he enlisted. There’s no reason to enlist; he enlisted. And he was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be, with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken.
That was the message. That was the message that was transmitted.
It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation. Absolutely stuns me. And I thought at least that was sacred. You know, when I was a kid growing up, a lot of things were sacred in our country. Women were sacred, looked upon with great honor. That’s obviously not the case anymore as we see from recent cases. Life — the dignity of life — is sacred. That’s gone. Religion, that seems to be gone as well.
Sean Hannity 10/18/17: Politicization by Democrat Congresswoman of an American Soldier, Senate Probe into Obama Era Russian Bribery Case (VIDEO)
THERE IS A RUSSIAN COLLUSION CASE, BUT IT WAS DURING THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY …
It is about time the government has investigated the real collusion, corruption and kickback with the Russians and Putin that took place between former president Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with regards to the Uranium One deal. The real corruption with Russia happened during Obama, not Trump folks. The Hill has broke this story wide open.
From THE HILL: FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow
Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.
UPDATE I: FBI informant blocked from telling Congress about Russia nuclear corruption case.
An American businessman who worked for years undercover as an FBI confidential witness was blocked by the Obama Justice Department from telling Congress about conversations and transactions he witnessed related to the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton and influence Obama administration decisions, his lawyer tells The Hill.
Attorney Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday she is working with members of Congress to see if they can get the Trump Justice Department or the FBI to free her client to talk to lawmakers.
“All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said in an interview Tuesday. “And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, ‘This is wrong. What should I do about it?’”
Toensing said she also possesses memos that recount how the Justice Department last year threatened her client when he attempted to file a lawsuit that could have drawn attention to the Russian corruption during the 2016 presidential race as well as helped him recover some of the money Russians stole from him through kickbacks during the FBI probe.
The undercover client witnessed “a lot of bribery going on around the U.S.” but was asked by the FBI to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that prevents him from revealing what he knows to Congress, Toensing explained.
A New Democrat Low … Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) Politicizing the Tragedy of the Death of Sgt. La David Johnson (VIDEO)
SICK … POLITICIZING THE DEATH OF AN AMERICAN SOLDIER IS AS LOW AS ONE CAN GET!!!
The exploitation of a tragedy … At a time that is the most raw, emotional and personal, a president’s call to the family of a fallen soldier should always remain just that, personal and private. Such was the case when President Donald Trump called the widow of fallen serviceman, Sgt. La David Johnson. Sadly, Johnson, a 25-year-old father of two, was killed October 4 while fighting in Niger. According to reports, she was on her way to receive her husband’s casket. Enter Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and the sick politicization begins. This hateful woman actually went on the liberal networks and spewed her hate. She was then forced to say, “I didn’t here the whole phone call”. Imagine that? So she didn’t hear the entire context of the call, she only cherry picked the things she wanted to to fit her hateful, anti-Trump agenda. It is even more sick that the liberal MSM would pile on.
According to President Trump, he said to the widow among many other things, “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.”
Gold Star father Craig Gross came out in defense of President Trump and stated that he believes critics of President Donald Trump’s reported comments to a soldier’s widow mistook his intended meaning.
It is really sick that this bias, hateful woman would take President Trump’s words out of context like this. Nobody was saying that he should have known he would die. Good grief. Sgt. La David Johnson is a hero and God bless your family. Personally, I praise Sgt. La David Johnson for his service and sacrifice to this great nation. This is why we honor the heroes of our military and especially the ones who lay down their lives. This is why We the People get upset at the NFL players disrespecting the National anthem, the flag and the military.
