  • Trump contradicts top aide, says border wall stance has not 'evolved'

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said his concept of a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico "has never changed or evolved," contradicting comments made by his chief of staff. White House chief of staff John Kelly told Hispanic lawmakers during a Wednesday meeting that some of Trump's immigration views during the campaign were "uninformed," according to reports in the Washington Post and New York Times. Kelly, in an interview later with Fox News, said the Republican president's views have evolved. In an apparent rebuke of Kelly, Trump tweeted on Thursday: "The Wall is the Wall,...

    President Donald Trump corrected his Chief of Staff John Kelly after he said that the president had “evolved” on the wall. “There’s been an evolutionary process that this president has gone through,” Kelly said in an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier, pointing out that Trump had “very definitely changed his attitude” towards DACA recipients and the wall. But Trump pushed back on Twitter against the suggestion that he had evolved on the wall. “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Trump said.
  • China, Russia, and the Long 'Unipolar Moment'

    The Diplomat ^ | N. Sears
    Despite the “rise and fall of the unipolar concert,” China and Russia’s balancing strategies have backfired: they are not leading to multipolarity, but are actually reinforcing unipolarity. The reason is that China and Russia’s balancing strategies have focused on regional “revisionism,” which has provoked powerful responses in East Asia and Europe to contain them. Russia’s balancing strategy has to a large extent proven to be counter-productive. Instead of preventing the expansion of NATO through a “divide and conquer” strategy, or driving a diplomatic wedge between the United States and Europe, Russian revisionism has united NATO...Perhaps most illustrative of all, a...
  • White House: ‘False Claims’ in Megyn Kelly Interview with ‘Politically Motivated’ Trump Accusers

    NBC’s Megyn Kelly featured an interview with three Donald Trump accusers prior to a press conference by Brave New Films, a leftist company releasing a documentary of the accusers. A White House spokesperson said: These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory. The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them.

    President Donald Trump overruled objections by his United Nations ambassador when he directed the U.S. leave the “Global Compact on Migration” treaty, which is intended to promote mass-migration into countries regardless of national laws and voters’ preferences. U.N.. Ambassador Nikki Haley wanted the United States to stay in the pro-migration treaty which is being advanced by a multinational conference in Mexico on Monday, December 4. But according to Foreignpolicy.com, "White House chief of staff John Kelly, who previously led the Department of Homeland Security’s crackdown on illegal immigrants, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions strongly backed a pullout, according to diplomatic...

    In these willfully ignorant, fiercely partisan times, let’s recall that we fought our bloodiest war to end human bondage. Almost three-quarters of a million Americans died in a complex struggle that began to right an inexcusable injustice. Now we’re re-fighting our Civil War with neo-Stalinist, fact-purging propaganda that makes cartoon villains of the dead. We rush to tear down statues of men we refuse to understand. We rob one group of citizens of their heritage to please another. And the president’s chief of staff cannot state facts about our history without triggering mob-rule outrage from those who could not even...
  • Kelly said he'd prefer to admit between zero and one refugees into the US each year: report

    The Hill ^ | October 25, 2017 | Jacqueline Thomsen
    White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly told other members of the Trump administration that he would ideally admit between zero and one refugees into the US each year if the decision was up to him. The New York Times reported Wednesday that Kelly made the comment while the administration debated lowering the cap on the number of refugees allowed into the country. President Trump eventually decided to lower the refugee cap to 45,000, the lowest levels since the Reagan administration, when the Refugee Act was passed. Officials said at the time that this number represents the maximum number...

    It’s the beginning of a new week and, as expected, Rep Frederica Wilson is full throttle ahead going for the Trump White House jugular. It’s an interesting battle seeing as the woman is clearly in this to make a name for herself with the Democratic party, and the media is fully onboard with her sideshow because now they have a grieving widow lambasting Trump. What’s better for ratings than a heartbroken widow finding consolation with a bunch of media hacks while taking a machete to President Trump? This week it’s the media spin machine’s meal ticket. Wilson has made her...

    America’s largest Irish group, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, has slammed black MSNBC host Joy Reid for what they say were her racist comments about Irish Americans. Reid wrote on Twitter: “Kelly grew up in segregated Boston, in an Irish Catholic neighborhood where women were bullied, not honored, and blacks scorned & rejected.” Reid made the comments about the Boston Irish after Boston native and White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly had criticized African American congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson […] Neil Cosgrave, the chairman of the AOH anti-defamation committee, slammed Reid and MSNBC saying, “It is hard to...

    The Democrat Party can only exist if it continually  promulgates  hatred against white people,even as it is composed of a majority of white folk. We have seen this for many years arising out of Civil Rights/Affirmative Action  legislation, which was not so meant to improve the plight of  minorities (blacks, Hispanics, women) but  to guarantee the unwavering loyalty and subservience of minorities to  the Democrat Party. What else could explain why academics and the media struggle to express that only whites (described as  "privileged" men) can be hateful, prejudiced,  and bigoted, yet it is impossible for African Americans to experience...

    'Megyn Kelly Today' seemed to get a new host this week, as viewers were introduced to party rock Megyn. That Megyn talked about boozy lunches, broke out in dance when Pitbull started playing and even threw to commercial break while still busting a move. She also joked about being hungover after an outing with a co-worker, and to finish out the week downed a Jell-O shot on air. Or rather, tried to down a Jell-O shot.

    If the name of U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson is not familiar to you, the Florida congresswoman gained props for speaking up about the injustice suffered by the family of Trayvon Martin and more recently Charles Kinsey. After news regarding slain soldier La David Johnson and Wilson confirming President Donald Trump was insensitive to the family surfaced, a trending topic, “#IBelieveFrederica” has cropped up defending her from Trump’s attack that Wilson’s comments were false. Wilson, who was a family friend of Johnson, was in a limousine with the soldier’s widow when Trump placed a call this week to offer condolences. Johnson’s...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson is laughing off criticism lobbed at her from White House chief of staff John Kelly, saying his comments show "I'm a rock star now." The Florida Democrat made the comment to Miami Fox affiliate WSVN-TV Thursday in response to Kelly. "You mean to tell me that I have become so important that the White House is following me and my words?" Wilson said. "This is amazing. It's amazing, that is absolutely phenomenal. I have to tell my kids that I'm a rock star now." She also said she has been getting threats from white nationalists in the...

    There are many politicians, especially on the federal level who've never served, sought and obtained deferments, and some who've embellished aspects of their time in to get elected. But there are some things that those who've never served should never interject themselves into. Many of us who served know of at least one person who died during an op. We all have our personal ways of dealing with such an event and if I may be so bold, I don't think any of us would take offense at the term "knew what he signed up for".

Frederica Wilson. "The thing that disturbs me is Congresswoman Wilson," O'Reilly told host John Bachman on "Newsmax Now" in an interview. "They were given a 24-hour day. "The family of the fallen Army Sgt. [La David] Johnson, who was a Green Beret, was given 24-hour notice that President Trump would call.

    Megyn Kelly‘s TV career continues to crash and burn. Along with her self-respect, apparently. Hoda Kotb, the popular host of “Today,” joined Kelly as a guest on her show. As their segment wrapped up, the ladies got up and danced among the live audience (video below). Awkward! The cringeworthy moment was almost universally panned on social media, with many calling it embarrassing, contrived and a cheap stunt for ratings. “Lots can happen in a year,” actor James Woods deadpanned on Twitter. The Daily Caller’s media critic Ian Miles Cheong quipped: “I feel nothing but second-hand embarrassment for Megyn Kelly.” BuzzFeed...
