Democrat Behind Slain Soldier Controversy, ‘I’m a Rockstar Now’
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), the woman who turned a private phone call between a slain soldier’s wife and the president into a political fiasco, has gone on the record stating the attention she was receiving is ‘amazing’ and she feels like a ‘rock star.’
Maybe she is the one with brain damage?
Wilson, who was in Miami at the moment of the interview, was asked by a journalist ‘to comment on White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s touching press briefing on Thursday, where the Gold Star father said he was “stunned” by Wilson’s public comments on the private phone conversation,’ reports Hannity.
“Let me tell you what my mother told me when I was little. She said, ‘The dog can bark at the moon all night long, but it doesn’t become an issue until the moon barks back,’” said Wilson.
“That the White House is following me and my words. This is amazing,” she added. “That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now.”
The representative made headlines across the nation when she claimed President Donald Trump told the widow of the fallen soldier he “knew what he signed up for,” hinting that Trump’s remarks were “insensitive” and she also claimed the president didn’t know the soldier’s name.

They vote for dorks like this heifer.
She spent their reparation money on cowboy hats and loud colored clothing.
It's clear to see that this dork is vain and ridiculous.

While the opioid epidemic has earned a place in the national spotlight in recent years, our understanding of how the crisis went from bad to worse is still coming into focus. To that end, the Washington Post and “60 Minutes” have done some important reporting.
The Post published an amazing piece yesterday explaining that early last year, Congress “effectively stripped the Drug Enforcement Administration of its most potent weapon against large drug companies suspected of spilling prescription narcotics onto the nation’s streets.” The point of the measure was to “weaken aggressive DEA enforcement efforts against drug distribution companies that were supplying corrupt doctors and pharmacists who peddled narcotics to the black market.”
And leading the way on the effort was Tom Marino, a Republican congressman from Pennsylvania, who championed the controversial legislation, which seems tough to defend.
For years, some drug distributors were fined for repeatedly ignoring warnings from the DEA to shut down suspicious sales of hundreds of millions of pills, while they racked up billions of dollars in sales.
The new law makes it virtually impossible for the DEA to freeze suspicious narcotic shipments from the companies, according to internal agency and Justice Department documents and an independent assessment by the DEA’s chief administrative law judge in a soon-to-be-published law review article. That powerful tool had allowed the agency to immediately prevent drugs from reaching the street.
As the piece explained, the nation’s major drug distributors hired a former DEA insider to help formulate a strategy, and then invested in an ambitious lobbying campaign, which included at least $1.5 million in political action committee contributions to the small number of lawmakers who helped advance the issue.
All of this unfolded with almost no scrutiny: “Besides the sponsors and co-sponsors of the bill, few lawmakers knew the true impact the law would have. It sailed through Congress and was passed by unanimous consent, a parliamentary procedure reserved for bills considered to be noncontroversial. The White House was equally unaware of the bill’s import when President Barack Obama signed it into law, according to interviews with former senior administration officials.”
A separate Washington Post analysis explained that a story like this “shows everything people hate about Washington,” complete with a revolving door between the drug industry and those who regulate it, the influence of campaign cash on lawmakers, and Congress failing to do its due diligence on important policy matters.
But as we come to terms with the revelations, pay particular attention to Tom Marino, who championed the controversial bill in the House, following years of related efforts. Given the circumstances, it would seem the Pennsylvania Republican has some explaining to do, though the article added that Marino not only declined repeated requests, his staff ultimately called the Capitol Police when reporters tried to interview the congressman at his office.
It’s against this backdrop that Donald Trump has decided to give Marino a promotion – nominating him to serve as the nation’s new drug czar.
Does Trump have his own "Benghazi"?
Naaa, the Reflubs will never waste their time and our money.
Trump signed my death Certificate...

What hate filled people belong to the liberal camp?
It is so sad to read the few liberals statements on this website. They are almost a carbon copy of each other. Totally misdirecting facts or truth for some sort of a personal failure they have and attempt to recover their loss by attacking our President, our Freedom and the good traits we as American's have had since becoming a free Nation.
It does not take a study or a news media or link to any article to figure out what has happened to the liberals. The liberal mindset is now in such a mess. They are filled with fear. Fear they will no longer have free food stamps or money from welfare. Filled with fear that they will go without medical care if they do not get it for free (due to other people paying it for them). Filled with fear they will have to be held accountable under the watchful eye of our new great President Trump.
These are a few of the reasons why liberals will post anything at all against our President. For them forget about truth and honesty...those are values that seem to not exist in the lives of a liberal. Buzz words like racist or Nazi or Klan is the reflective force used by them to misdirect their own mischief as they hope to go under the radar with crimes and treason undetected.
As much hate and insanity liberals have been exhibiting you would think they would go ahead and leave the USA. Why should they stay here? Further, do you not think they have worn out their own welcome in a free USA where many have risked their life serving this Nation? Liberals seem to not get the message. They make more noise then everyone else..but the majority IS everyone else...and we sent them a clear message this last election. BYE BYE liberalism and communism...hello back to FREEDOM!

A daft twerp
The orange buffoon holds Winston Churchill in high regard, Churchill’s grandson British MP Nicholas Soames does not have a similar admiration of Trump referring to the President as a “Daft Twerp” in response to his asinine tweets about The UK. Evidently the nickname is catching on across the pond. Probably not bad for Trump who’s name has schoolchildren giggling every time they hear it, to trump is to fart in mildly vulgar British slang.
