John Kelly Another Victim of Trumpism.

    President Barack Obama did not call General Kelly after Kelly’s son died in combat. There was a White House breakfast for Gold Star families months later where General Kelly sat with First Lady Michelle Obama. General Kelly left the breakfast out of his 12 minute speech yesterday, leaving the impression that there was no interaction with the Obamas.

    Kelly also blasted, without personally naming, Democratic Representative Fredricks Wilson for lying about Trump’s comments. Congresswoman Wilson stands out because she wears hats. The hats are meant to be outlandish. They are worn in honor of an aunt who wore hats. Representative Wilson was in the car with the family because she was a family friend. Wilson is a former school principal. She set up a mentoring program and was a personal mentor to the slain soldier. The family invited her to be present for the call. Kelly confirmed that Trump did say that the soldier knew what he was getting into. Kelly lied when he said that Wilson took credit for constructing the FBI building. The FBI building was constructed before Wilson came to Congress. Wilson played a major role in having the building renamed for two slain FBI agents. Kelly lied. Then FBI director Comey commended Wilson for “doing the impossible” at the meeting that Kelly describes.

    Kelly left out details about how Gold Star families were treated by Obama. Kelly lied about Wilson and the FBI building. He fits in perfectly in the Trump White House. I provide links to the story about the FBI building.

    Fredrica Wilson is not the victim here. She remains a proud black woman. The record supports her position. Kelly allowed Trump to use the general’s dead son as a prop.

    Also, President Obama called Kelly's daughter-in-law about his son's death.   Does Kelly think Obama should have called every family member?  He conveniently didn't mention that either.

    John Kelly from transcript:

    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.

    For the vain, egotistical and unable to empathize, or put themselves in another's place, John Kelly.....what one Marine officer tells another Marine officer about one of them losing a not what you tell a young pregnant mother of two who just lost her husband.

    When what is said doesn't go over well, you apologize and shut up. You don't attack.

    That is a fact and has nothing to do with abortions, or the imagined "dignity" replete world of John Kelly's youth.

    Mr. Kelly, dignity, honor and respect, go to the powerful man who is big enough to admit his actions caused offense to others, and not use his position or his personal losses, to strike back.

    Kelly.confirms that Trump used words that Trump denies saying. He failed to mention that Obama held a breakfast for Gold Star families that included Kelly. The General lied about Frederica Wilson’s actions regarding an FBI building. He failed to mention how close Wilson was to the family. Rather than cleaning up the White House, Kelly has adopted its lying traits.

    "Alternative facts" refuted by video of Wilson. 

    Telling the truth, silent non-violent protests, being offended by a President and White House which disgrace the nation daily with lies and insults to our allies, is according to these delusional nutjobs disgracing the flag, the troops, the honored dead......when they get us into the war Trump is eager to start they'll make it clear it is the "sacred duty to Trump and the heroic fallen" to shutup and praise him.

    Huckabee-Sanders says Kelly stands by his comments about Frederica Wilson. She notes that you are not allowed to dispute the word of a four-star General.

    Arguing with the Reichsführer 4 Star General ist VERBOTEN!

    I gotcha!

    Trump lies every goddamn day.

    But now his Chief of Staff lies?

    And I am surprised?

    Kelly should be ashamed!

    I mean really ashamed!

    Screw them all.

    I got nothin.

    This where we are. I don’t know how Trump maintains support. I talked to a psychiatrist friend. He believes that Trump supporters are delusional. My friend says that delusion is a method people use to relief stress. If you challenge them on their delusion, you provoke conflict because you are taking away comfort. My political solution is not to challenge Trump supporters directly, but to energize the Democratic base to dilute the impact of Trump supporters. In essence, we are screwed until 2018 at a minimum. It will take years to undo the damage already done by Trump and his base.

    Representative Federico S. Wilson calls out Trump’s racism. She is not backing down 

    Trump is the same racist clown who demanded Obama’s birth certificate he also old John Lewis to go back to his poverty-stricken neighborhood. Trump finds good people among Nazis.


    John Lewis

    ​Because some people are afraid of, or tired of talking about race, there will be articles asking why Wilson brought up race just because we are talking about a racist. Black people will remember the names of these diversion experts. We have a mentally unstable racist in the White House. That is the focus.


    We can predict that Trump supporters will remain in lockstep with Trump.

    Note that Trump supporters believe the stories about Harvey Weinstein but reject the charges against Donald Trump.

    Believing, Dresden,  3rd Reich, April 22, 1941, Klemperer:

    "Our victory is as good as certain." (Until now it was always, We have already won, the English just haven't noticed yet.) Most characteristic expression: we do not need to know what the Fuhrer wants to do, we believe in him.  Always and everywhere: National Socialism does not want you to think, only believe.

    Truly scary. 

    John Kelly has to apologize. The press has to hound him to correct the record. This was a racist attack on a black woman.


    La David Johnson’s widow confirms the story told by Representative Frederica S. Wilson told. The widow did not appreciate the tone of Trump’s comments. She confirmed that Trump said “He knew what he signed up for”. She also stated that Trump did not remember her husband’s name. Trump tweeted response to the widow’s words was to “politely” call the widow a liar

    The widow’s comments

    Trump’s tweets


    Trump can bring this up st the next VFW convention:

    "They said I didn't remember his name, but I knew it all the time....the Democrats were plotting against me..... Hillary had the wasn't on my deak.....they put her up to it. I won by an historic vote and they are trying to discredit it. I made sure it wouldn't work, see....."

    Trump’s base does not care that Trump lies. The country is in a very dangerous situation.

    Late to the party here, but interesting that there was an 1860 proposal, the Corwin Amendment, that would have allowed slavery forevermore that Lincoln was down with, but he drew the line (or literally erased the line) that would have extended the divide physically coast to coast - a bridge too far for him. Maybe old news for many, but something new for me... Guess this is the kind of compromise that Kelly is looking for in his life - "half-atrocity is good enough, let's get on with it..."

    The battle was about the expansion of slavery. There were slave states in the Union.

    We thought Kelly was going to be the sane guy in the White House. If an Obama Chief of Staff slandered a white Conservative female Congresswoman, the White House press corps would never let it go. The MSM treats Frederica S. Wilson as an afterthought.

    "Sane" is situational. In the Kingdom of the Blind, the 1-eyed man is king.
