    First of all, let me say that this nation is in debt to former Marine Generals Mattis and Kelly for their service to the United States. Kelly in particular deserves our respect and appreciation. His own son gave his life as a Marine in service to America. But I have to disagree with their recent public comments in opposition to President Trump. Not that President Trump can’t be exasperating at times. He has a tendency to irritate his supporters as often as he infuriates his enemies. Not one of his most endearing qualities for sure, nor a wise political strategy....

    Friday on CNN, host John King played a clip of a new interview between former Trump administration communications director Anthony Scaramucci and former chief of staff John Kelly. Kelly was commenting on former Defense Secretary James Mattis denouncing the Trump administration for using Washington, DC police and National Guard troops to clear out protesters from Lafayette Square for Trump’s visit to St. John’s Episcopal Church.

    General John Kelly could be the next retired general to rebuke Donald Trump for calling in active duty military in the midst of George Floyd protests – as the former chief of staff called the president 'nasty' for his comments about General Jim Mattis. Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, defended Trump's former Defense secretary on Thursday after Mattis publicly criticized the president's handling of the nationwide protests. He also shot down Trump's claim that he fired Mattis in 2018.

    Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said Thursday that President Trump has “clearly forgotten” the details surrounding James Mattis’ departure after the president attacked him on Twitter this week, saying it was he who had the “honor of firing” the former defense secretary. “The president did not fire him. He did not ask for his resignation,” Kelly, a former Marine General, told the Washington Post. In a series of tweets Wednesday night, Trump berated Mattis, calling him the “world’s most overrated general” and claimed to have terminated him after the former secretary of defense criticized Trump’s leadership, saying...

    An ABC News joint investigation with its owned television stations sheds new light on the likely flow of the coronavirus from global hotspots into the U.S. and provides a glimpse the toll the virus has taken on some of the first Americans to interact with international travelers: airport workers. From December 2019 through March 2020, as severe outbreaks cropped up in China and then Italy and Spain, among others, thousands of flights from the hard-hit nations poured into U.S. cities, according to an ABC News analysis of more than 20 million flight records obtained from the tracking service Flightradar-24.

He came in with a bang, went out with a whimper, but like so many X’s, he misses the action & just can’t keep his mouth shut,. ...which he actually has a military and legal obligation to do.

    Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council aide and impeachment witness President Donald Trump fired Friday, was just doing his job, former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told students and guests at a Drew University event here Wednesday night. Over a 75-minute speech and Q&A session, Kelly laid out, in the clearest terms yet, his misgivings about Trump’s words and actions regarding North Korea, illegal immigration, military discipline, Ukraine, and the news media. Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, said that Vindman is blameless and was simply followed the training he’d received as a soldier; migrants...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat,” House Impeachment Manager and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stated that he wants to call former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as a witness in the Senate’s impeachment trial. Because Kelly has indicated he has knowledge of what former National Security Adviser John Bolton would testify to. Nadler said Democrats will want to call Bolton, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, and “some of the other witnesses who we have heard had firsthand information. … And maybe, now, John Kelly.” Host Ari Melber then asked, “John Kelly,...

    When Nikki Haley speaks, people listen. – When people start surveying the GOP landscape post-Trump, whether that comes in January after being removed from the the presidency by the Senate (which is not likely to happen), in January 2021 after a loss in the 2020 election (also not in the cards) or in January 2025 following the completion of his second term in office (bingo!), the survey inevitably lands to the name of Nikki Haley as one of his most likely successors. Other names also arise, of course: Names like Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo and Ted Cruz, and the...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly thought President Donald Trump's remarks in a call to the widow of a Green Beret slain by Islamic State terrorists in Niger were "completely appropriate" and "respectful," press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday. "Gen. Kelly was present for the call and thought it was completely appropriate," Sanders told reporters at the daily briefing. "He thought the call was respectful — and he thought that the president did the best job he could under those circumstances to offer condolences on the part of the country." Trump has no recording of Tuesday's call to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct. 9, 2018
    A former Republican senator from New Hampshire says Nikki Haley should visit the early-primary state as soon as possible to explore a 2020 challenge against President Trump. “After four years of Donald Trump, America will want a president of sound mind and dignified presidential bearing," former Sen. Gordon Humphrey told the Washington Examiner. Haley announced her resignation as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday. She opposed Trump in 2016, contributing to suspicion about her departure, which will take effect later this year.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 17, 2018 | Joel Gehrke
    Ambassador Nikki Haley used the threat of a U.S. invasion of North Korea to secure a new round of sanctions against the regime last year, according to a new report. Harper’s Magazine reported that Haley raised the possibility of a U.S. invasion by telling a Chinese diplomat, “My boss is kind of unpredictable, and I don’t know what he’ll do." Haley recalled making those comments during remarks at a small gathering of people at the Council for National Policy, and as part of her effort to discourage China from vetoing additional oil sanctions on North Korea last September, following the...

    At a time when Republicans are starting to contemplate what their party will look like after Donald Trump leaves office, a rivalry has developed between the two politicians who cut markedly different profiles — and signs of strain are bubbling to the surface. The Pence team has recently asked senior Republicans for updates on Haley’s outreach to donors. And with Haley embarking on a national fundraising tour and promoting a new outside political group, top Pence advisers blame her for persistent rumors that she will replace him on the Trump's ticket in 2020. Tensions flared after Haley chose not to...

    President Trump struck down the possibility of former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley replacing Vice President Mike Pence as his running mate in 2020 during an interview with Fox Business Network Wednesday. Trump was asked about a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, which suggested the political swap. Trump affirmed his appreciation for Haley, describing her as a “friend” and noting her involvement in his campaign, but dismissed the possibility of her future position as his vice president. “I love Nikki. She’s endorsed me. She’s my friend. She’s a part of my campaign,” Trump said. “But Mike has been a great vice...

    CNN Opinion ^ | April 26, 2019 | Arick Wierson
    President Trump's recent stonewalling tactics, aimed at blocking Congress' ability to follow up on the allegations detailed in the Mueller report, are rooted in the belief that he can run out the clock on the Democrats in the House through the 2020 election. Nonetheless, it's a strategy fraught with peril, and if the President begins to see a significant erosion in his approval numbers from Americans tired of the endless standoff, he might need to reach deep into his bag of tricks to reset the national narrative. There is one move that could prove to be a complete game changer:...

    Republicans, independents, and even many Democrats approve of her, and the Constitution allows the House to select a non-member . . . Next month’s election could deliver a close enough result that it will be very difficult for the House of Representatives to organize itself and elect a speaker. If the House deadlocks, the Constitution allows the body to select a non-member to serve as speaker and run the place. It’s never happened before, but at the beginning of this century, few thought figures such as Barack Obama or Donald Trump could ever be elected president. On Capitol Hill, there...

    Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is claiming two former cabinet members tried to recruit her to help undermine the president. In a recent interview, Haley said former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly confronted her in a closed-door meeting to enlist her in opposing President Trump. Haley will detail the alleged meeting in her soon to be released memoir, “With All Due Respect.” She said Kelly and Tillerson “confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate — they were trying to save the...
