NY Times Launches Slime Attack on Gen. John Kelly’s Patriotism

Apparently, a presidential Chief-of-Staff sharing the same definition of patriotism as his boss is now a bad thing.

But that’s only if the C-i-S in question is John Kelly, and the president in question is Donald Trump.

In all fairness, it should also be noted that the ones casting the accusatory finger is none other than the paragon of objectivity and fairness, The New York Times.

As **achem** “reported” by Peter Baker of The Times, the writer bemoans that Kelly hasn’t reigned-in Trump to his satisfaction;

For all of the talk of Mr. Kelly as a moderating force and the so-called grown-up in the room, it turns out that he harbors strong feelings on patriotism, national security and immigration that mirror the hard-line views of his outspoken boss.

Imagine that… a man who spent well over 40 years in the Marine Corps happens to be a solid pro-American patriot. Whoda thunk it?

These are the type of men General John Kelly led as
Commander of all Multinational Forces in western Iraq.

Nut-Job Congresswoman Plays the Ultimate Victim Card

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you and the rest of the civilized world already have seen the disgusting video clip (below) of Florida Democrat Frederica Wilson gleefully proclaiming herself “a rock star” in the wake of the death of Sgt La David Johnson.

But what isn’t drawing as much attention is Wilson’s rather pathetic attempt to demonize General John Kelly. As reported by Anna Giaritelli of the Washington Examiner;

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said Friday that White House chief of staff John Kelly’s use of the term “empty barrel” in a Thursday press conference was racist.

“That’s a racist term, too. I’m thinking about that one. We looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel. And I don’t like to be dragged into something like that,” Wilson told CNN Friday morning. “The only thing I want to be dragged into right now is getting back our girls who are the victims of Boko Haram in Nigeria.”

Somehow missing the irony of the Obama Administration historical ignoring the plight of “our girls” (other than a plethora of dopey hashtags), Wilson made a point further whoring out what few shreds of integrity and dignity she had remaining;

“Boko Haram and ISIS combined, and they killed my son,” Wilson added.

“You mean Sgt. La David Johnson?” the CNN host asked.

“La David. My role model son, my role model son,” Wilson clarified.

In the meantime, CNN political commentator and longtime Democrat propagandist Brian Fallon personally attacked General Kelly via social media;

To keep things in perspective, the Cambridge Dictionary defines odious as;

Odious
adjective UK ​ /ˈəʊ.di.əs/ US ​ /ˈoʊ.di.əs/ formal

extremely unpleasant and causing or deserving hate:

Thesaurus: synonyms and related words

Serious and unpleasant

abominable abysmal apocalyptic appalling awfully belief corrosive grim grisly grotesque gruesome hate noxious revolting rotten shitty shocking shockingly stinking wretched

Just so everyone is aware of the professional pedigree of Fallon, here’s a listing of the people or organizations the CNN talking head has been employed as a spokesman;

  • Kerry-Edwards presidential campaign
  • Senator Robert Menendez (currently on trial for corruption)
  • Senator Charles Schumer
  • Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Center
  • Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department
  • Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign

Happily, there are still some who don’t mind confronting the political prostitution as practiced by the likes of Wilson and Fallon;

Tell it to the Marines: General Kelly Tells of the Best Job He Ever Had

I’ll admit it – I love Gen Kelly. I love him as a father-figure, as a strong national leader, as a true role model in every sense of the word.

But what I admire most about the man is his strength of character. Specifically, his sense of humility.

Just listen to the general as he describes;

  1. The hardest job he’s ever had.
  2. The most important job he’s ever had.
  3. The best job he’s ever had.

America needs more like John Kelly, and a helluva lot less of the likes of Rahm Emanuel.

Gen Kelly fires back at Democrat Luis ‘Kelly is a Disgrace to the Uniform’ Gutierrez

John Kelly has been many things in his life; a Marine Corps officer, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Chief-of-Staff for the President of the United States, just to name a few.

But what most Americans don’t know about about General Kelly and his wife, Karen, is that they are both Gold Star parents. They lost their son, 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly, USMC, who was killed in combat operations in Afghanistan.

Nonetheless, a certain pip squeak of a politician has taken it upon himself to publicly insult Kelly, as reported by Fox News;

In a statement last Tuesday, [Rep. Luis] Gutierrez said Kelly “has no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the President’s actions by ‘just following orders.’”

Never serving as much as even a reservist’s weekend duty, the congressman representing the 4th Congressional District, nicknamed “Chiraq” due to the death and destruction that normally follows Democrats in charge, Gutierrez is ostensibly lashing out at President Trump’s adherence to the Constitution in regards to giving Congress a six-month time frame to legislate a solution to Barack Obama’s temporary immigration fix popularly known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

Predictably, Gutierrez offered up zero proof of Kelly being a supposed “white supremacist.” On the contrary, common sense dictates that during Kelly’s 42-years of military service, he regularly entrusted his very life to fellow Marines of every race, creed, color and religion.

But being a man of honor, Kelly has responded to Gutierrez’s slanderous and factless tirade;

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired back at a prominent House Democrat who called him a “disgrace to the uniform,” in the Gold Star father and retired Marine Corps general’s first public response to the personal attack on his service.

Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez had leveled the criticism at Kelly over his support of President Trump’s decision to end a controversial program that shielded young illegal immigrants from deportation.

In an email to Fox News late Sunday, Kelly responded by saying Congress did “nothing” to help so-called Dreamers when they had the chance.

“As far as the congressman and other irresponsible members of congress are concerned, they have the luxury of saying what they want as they do nothing and have almost no responsibility,” Kelly said. “They can call people liars but it would be inappropriate for me to say the same thing back at them. As my blessed mother used to say ‘empty barrels make the most noise.’”

He concluded, “The congressman has a right to his opinion.”

Proving that his comrade in arms, Gen. James “Chaos” Mattis isn’t the only quotable person in the Trump Administration, Trump’s C-o-S made headlines during the historic assault on Baghdad when he informed a nervous Los Angeles Times reporter who thought the heavily outnumbered Marines just may face defeat when they launched their offensive against the heavily defended Iraqi capital city;

“Hell these are Marines. Men like them held Guadalcanal and took Iwo Jima. Baghdad ain’t sh*t.”
