General Kelly has no credibility left. He joints the list of disgraced officers, that include Benedict Arnold and William Childs Westmoreland


WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) --  Sarah Sanders is a complete idiot.  General Kelly is not above the law -- it's just a misconception that has gone to her head.  Ms Sanders is an 'Empty Barrel' and the biggest liar yet, since Sean Spicer, who can not get a job anywhere.  Ms. Sanders keep on lying -- you will go far.

Ms. Sanders asked the question, "If you want to argue with a Four (4) Star Marine Corps General. . ."  What Ms. Sanders has not been informed on, is that -- it is every serviceman's right and duty to question the orders of a superior.  Long gone are the days - - 'Your job is to do or die and not to reason why".  The old cover story of . . . I was just following orders. . . does not work anymore.

Every service member is responsible for following competent orders and is subject to prosecution for Dereliction of Duty. As far as a retired four-star general is concerned -- they are worthless as tits on a male pig.  An Enlisted man or woman with the rank of E-1, has more power than a general.

Did you know that an active duty general stands at attention and salutes when a Squad or Platoon passes by?

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Oct. 19 criticized Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.) for comments she made at an FBI building dedication in 2015. (Reuters).

General Kelly has no credibility left.  He joints the list of disgraced officers, that include Benedict Arnold and William Childs Westmoreland.  He is a racist and he beats his wife.  You know that he does because of his total disrespect for women in general.  He is just like the president at attacking women.

To White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, the conversation between the president of the United States and the spouse of a fallen soldier is “sacred.” And perhaps, private.
But President Trump has been on the receiving end of significant criticism after Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said he told a pregnant widow that her husband who was killed in an ambush in Niger knew what he signed up for. Trump denies he said those words, which the lawmaker called insensitive, to Myeshia Johnson.
Kelly said Thursday during the White House news briefing that he was shocked that Wilson was even a part of the conversation.
“It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation,” he said Thursday in the White House briefing room. “It stuns me. I thought at least that was sacred.”
Wilson being present for a conversation between the commander in chief and one of her grieving constituents doesn't make the call not “sacred.” Neither does the fact that the mother of fallen soldier — who confirmed Wilson's report — was present as well.

Wendy Ellison Mullen

Fight Back!" is a protest song in the vein of Jefferson Airplane and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.  Inspried by the Women's March the day after the inauguration, Wendy wrote a blistering anthem that puts you right in the center of the march.  Listen, join in the chanting, this song will stay with you.

Montel Williams passionately responds to NFL 'take a knee' protests

President Trump Says the NFL Owners are "Afraid" of their Black Players


WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- President Trump continued to throw gasoline on the NFL Players with the Billionaire Owners, saying that the Owners are "Afraid" of their Black Players.  The last time a white man was scared, it was in South Carolina before the Civil War, when the owners found out that the population of approximately 450,000 slaves outnumbered the 38,000 whites in the entire state!

A Reminder of What Colin Kaepernick's #TakeAKnee Protest Is Actually About




President Donald Trump's ongoing tirade against NFL players and their First Amendment rights has had one immediate, detrimental result: the media is now asking all the wrong questions. Heated debates are focused on respect and not justice, and the #TakeAKnee and #TakeTheKnee hype has overtaken the original message.

By the time the Sunday games kicked off on Sept. 24, Americans were more interested in who was taking a knee than the actual games themselves. Don't get me wrong — it was great to see numerous NFL players, coaches, and owners stand (or kneel) in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. 
But whether they were actually in solidarity with Kaepernick and his message was hard to ascertain. Remember, Kaepernick began taking a knee during the national anthem in the 2016 season and there have been only a few notable athletes who have joined in the protest since. 
So, Trump's ongoing attacks — not the original message behind Kaepernick's protest — might have been the true motivator for the more than 200 players, coaches, and owners who took a knee or engaged in some form of protest. It's understandable, as Trump has been inspiring protests since he was elected president. But it's important that people don't get the message of the protest twisted because of the spectacle that Trump has made.


Century Records and Flagg Records were created and owned by Frank Wilson, a California Highway Patrol Officer who lived and worked out of Lancaster California in the mid-1960's.  Early Artists were Kenny Smith, The Allies, Don Roman G., Rosie and Ron Rochard (music in the Smithsonian).  Smith was given the rights to Flagg Records along with the Silver Bunnie Rabbit.  Flagg Records big cover smash by THE ALLIES - 'UPTIGHT" (by Stevie Wonder, 1967) from Boron Air Force Station, Boron California -- lives on the pages here - http://www.sdcomnimedia.net/music/sdc-records-group/flagg/

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- When flags are entered into the game in real-time, the energy and the emotions of the minute and of the hour makes no sense days later when the message has gotten garbled up and attacks from foreign sources amp up the ugly side of fake information to the masses.

Republican senator tweets after Trump says he's 'in the hospital'


WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- This is about as close as the President has ever come into contact were Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi

'I'm not hospitalized,' Republican senator tweets after Trump says he's 'in the hospital'

A Republican senator tweeted Wednesday that he is not in the hospital after President Donald Trump repeatedly cited his supposed hospitalization as a reason Republicans did not have enough votes to pass healthcare legislation in the Senate.
"Thanks for the well-wishes," tweeted Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi. "I'm not hospitalized, but am recuperating at home in Mississippi and look forward to returning to work soon."
Trump began Wednesday by tweeting that one Senate "yes" vote was in the hospital, preventing senators from voting on the Graham-Cassidy legislation ahead of a September 30 deadline under which just a simple majority would be required to pass the bill. Republicans announced Tuesday they would not bring the legislation forward for a vote.

Trump Deletes his Supportive Tweets for "Lex" Luther Strange - Sessions Want to "Force" NFL Players to Standup

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- The only Tweets that Mr. Trump wish he could delete are the ones he created when President Obama was in office.  It's so crazy that Mr. Trump does not take his own advice.

He has done everything he told Obama NOT to do.  President Trump has a proven track record that he will "throw you under the bus, and roll over you a couple of times - in your face."

It was noted some time ago that the Summer Football League called the United States Football League (USFL) where Trump owned the New Jersey Generals with Herchal Walker, those days?  It was Trump's decision to switch their schedule from summer to winter to compete with the NFL that with that move Trump destroyed that franchise and then won in court a $200 Million lawsuit, and the jury awarded then Mr. Trump the amount of THREE DOLLARS ($3.00).

Help for Puerto Rico Was Being Delayed by the Jones Act.  What's That?

12:07 PM ET



While Puerto Rico begins the long recovery process after Hurricane Maria, experts say that waiving a law known as the Jones Act could help. But the Trump Administration on Tuesday declined to waive the statute, also known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920. Here's what to know about the law.

What was the origin of the Jones Act?

The Jones Act was put in place after World War II, when the threat of German U-boats (which sunk almost 5,000 ships during the war) was still fresh. The statute required that any ship carrying goods from one U.S. port to another be made in America, staffed with Americans, and owned by an American. The idea was to support the American shipbuilding and marine shipping industries from competition, so that they would be sufficiently robust should another conflict begin.

What is its legacy?

As many have argued, the Jones Act has long outlived its usefulness. German U-boats no longer pose a threat to the U.S., and the act now mainly serves to bolster the American shipping industry, effectively giving it a monopoly on shipping to ports like those in Puerto Rico. The effect is to increase costs for consumers. If a foreign ship unloads in Puerto Rico, it must pay high tariffs, taxes and fees, costs which get passed along to consumers. If it first unloads in Florida and the products are shipped from there to Puerto Rico, the cost of rerouting will also be passed to the consumer, one Puerto Rico expert recently wrote in the New York Times. The result is that American goods cost twice as much in Puerto Rico as they do in other parts of the region, like the U.S. Virgin Islands, which are not covered by the Jones Act. Critics say it is a protectionist law, and multiple studies say it has cost the Puerto Rican economy billions of dollars.
