Melania Makes First Public Appearance in Weeks With Incredible Statement Today At White House

Published

on

So much for all the conspiracies on Melania Trump. The First Lady is evidently up and around, alive and more beautiful than ever. And no, she didn’t run off to New York. First lady Melania Trump co-hosted a reception for Gold Star families with President Trump at the White House Monday evening, marking her first public appearance since mid-May. The event, a private East Room reception for more than 40 Gold Star military families, was not an unusual one for Melania to attend. Incidentally, one reporter did see her up and about last week as well. It takes time to recover from surgery.

In a statement, Melania said it was a privilege to welcome the military families to the White House and she thanked them and military members more broadly for their service. “To all those who have lost loved ones in service to our country, our nation grieves with you,” her statement read. “It is a solemn reminder that we, the American people, are able to live as freely as we do because of the selfless sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. We remain indebted to each of them and we honor them today, together, with their families.”

A person at the event told CNN’s Jeff Zeleny that the President made a lighthearted joke about the First Lady’s extended absence from public view, saying the media was asking: “Where’s Melania?” He went on for a minute or so, saying the media was speculating where she has been. “Did she leave him?” the President asked at one point, before pointing out that Melania Trump was, in fact, sitting in the front row.

Melania was last seen in public on May 10th with President Trump as they welcomed back three American hostages released from captivity in North Korea. On May 14th, she underwent minor kidney surgery to remove a fibrous growth at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. She was released from the hospital on May 19th and has been recovering at home in the White House since then. The media went into overdrive with rumors and conspiracy theories, just salivating at the thought that either Melania was dead or had finally left her husband. It was disgusting. President Trump did not even go to Israel to open the historic American embassy in Jerusalem so he could be with his wife during all this. But do you see that in the media? Nope.

The media walk of shame over all this includes Politico, The Washington Post, and CNN, who have all speculated endlessly about the First Lady’s absence from the public eye. One Politico story actually had the headline, “White House Silence on Melania Stokes Conspiracy Theories.” Their rumors spanned from death to plastic surgery, to moving back to New York, to an affair to cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller. She’s holed up with the Obamas or working on a tell-all book about her husband has also been making the rounds. It was the fodder of gossip mongers. Instead of focusing on historic events that the President is immersed in such as North Korea, they wagged their tongues over the First Lady.

Melania was not brooking those rumors and shot them down last week, “I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I’m doing. Rest assured, I’m here at the @White House w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!” Of course, that wasn’t good enough for the left. CNN’s Brian Stelter lied to his Reliable Sources audience over the weekend by repeating the false claim that First Lady Melania Trump has disappeared — that she has been “invisible.”

Here’s how Melania’s spokeswoman addressed all this per the Western Journal:

“Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman, addressed Mrs. Trump’s absence last week, saying she is “doing great.”

““Sadly, we deal with conspiracy theories all the time, so this is nothing new, just more silly nonsense,” Grisham said. “She is doing great. I wouldn’t characterize it as a long absence. She was hospitalized for almost a week and is now home and recovering.”

“Grisham said the first lady “has been involved in several internal meetings with staff all last week, and that continues this week. We’ve been going over initiatives and other long-term planning for events such as the Congressional Picnic and 4th of July.”

“The spokeswoman added in a statement to Fox News on Monday, “Mrs. Trump has always been a strong and independent woman who puts her family, and certainly her health above all else, and that won’t change over a rabid press corps. She’s confident in what she is doing and in her role, and knows the rest is just speculation and nonsense.””

CNBC correspondent Eamon Javers in response to the Politico piece said that he saw Melania with her aides in the West Wing last Tuesday. Replying to a tweet by CNN’s Brian Stelter about Trump’s disappearance, Fox News personality Guy Benson wrote: “at least two journalists stated publicly that they’ve seen her in the last few days at the (White House).”

At Monday evening’s event with Gold Star families, Melania wore a beautiful, simple black dress and looked the picture of health. The press was not allowed in, but the White House often releases photos following such occasions.

Obviously, the First Lady is still not 100%. First lady Melania Trump will skip a public event at the White House this afternoon, a day after she briefly returned to public life following an extended absence. That may be because she’s still getting her strength back or maybe it’s a scheduling conflict, but Melania is not going anywhere and she will be just fine. Grisham noted that the First Lady is expected to join President Trump at a Federal Emergency Management Agency hurricane briefing on Wednesday.

Sorry lefties… she’s baaaack.

BREAKING: Migrant Caravan Swells Massively Overnight – Invasion Imminent At Border

Published

on

...

* By

Yesterday we had reports that as many as 2000 Central American migrants had turned back.

According to reports, thousands joined the caravan out of the blue overnight, though. Numbers now range at over 7000 in the group. Apparently Mexican forces are standing down or being overwhelmed.

We need the military on the border ASAP!

The L.A. Times is reporting:

“A caravan of Central American immigrants started walking north into Mexico early Sunday, blowing past police and immigration officials as they continued their journey toward the U.S. border.

A group of several thousand immigrants set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. They were headed for the city of Tapachula, about 18 miles away.

It was unclear whether the police planned to stop the group. At one point, a large contingent of federal police officers blocked the road before retreating. At another point, a small group of police watched as members of the caravan passed, some of them running and skipping.

When a small group of immigration officials tried to stop the caravan to convince its members to apply for political asylum, the caravan swept past them too.

On Friday and Saturday, officials watched as thousands of migrants illegally crossed the Suchiate River that forms the border between Guatemala and Mexico.

Gerardo Hernandez, head of the civil protection agency in the municipality of Suchiate, Chiapas, said 7,233 immigrants were registered over the last three days at a shelter in Ciudad Hidalgo. He said his agency has been asked to help provide the immigrants with food and shelter.

The caravan left the impoverished and crime-ridden Central American nation of Honduras more than a week ago, and its participants began arriving late last week at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman, just across the river from Ciudad Hidalgo.

The migrants say their intent is to cross into the United States. The Trump administration has vowed to stop their advance and has threatened Mexico and Central American countries with economic reprisals if they fail to stop the migrant group.

President Trump has made the caravan a campaign issue at his rallies in the closing weeks of the U.S. midterm election campaign, labeling the assemblage of bedraggled migrants a threat to U.S. security and saying he would call out the military should the migrants make it to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, under pressure from Trump, has said that no migrants will be allowed to enter the country in an “irregular” manner.

On Friday, Mexican authorities put on a show of force when several thousand caravan participants tried to storm the official Mexican border crossing into Ciudad Hidalgo. With tear gas and police in riot gear, Mexico thwarted the attempt to breach the border, an operation that drew praise from Trump.

The caravan is made up mostly of men but also includes hundreds of women and children, some of whom said they were fleeing violence.”

The Gateway Pundit also reported:

“The illegal migrant caravan is sweeping through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers having jumped to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico. After blocking the migrants on a bridge Friday, Mexican officials allowed the migrants to swim and raft across a river from Guatemala into Mexico Saturday and then regroup in a riverside park. Mexico also allowed over 600 women and children to legally enter for processing on Saturday.

Reports from the caravan state that on two occasions Mexican federal police stood in formation to meet the caravan as the migrants staged a massive march up a highway. As the migrants approached both times the Mexican police stood down and let them pass. A Mexican official was reported to have said they can’t stop 7,200 people.

Kate Linthicum with the Los Angeles Times reported on the two failed attempts to stop the caravan Sunday: “I’m only just realizing the massive scale of this caravan as they march north into Mexico. It’s several thousand people. Just look…A group of immigration agents stopped the caravan to ask them to apply for asylum in Mexico. The caravan blew past them…The caravan just swept past a large contingent of Mexican federal police, who didn’t do anything to stop them…”

State Assembly Just Impeached Their Entire Supreme Court – They’ve Had It!

Published

on

...

* By

In what has to be the feel-good story of the day, The Hill is now reporting that the West Virginia House of Delegates actually voted on Monday night to impeach all of the justices on the state Supreme Court. This decision was prompted by reports of extravagant spending on office renovations.

In a series of votes that of course fell along party lines, lawmakers approved 11 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices. Sending the process on to the State Senate.

State lawmakers had originally voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles after he and his office spent $363,000 in renovations. This became an issue when he was allegedly found to have lied to the House Finance Committee about having a $42,000 antique desk and computers, owned by the state, transferred to his home. And also was found to be using state vehicles for his personal use.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“West Virginia lawmakers, seeking to remove every justice on the state’s four-member Supreme Court amid what they called an “over-the-top” spending scandal, impeached three justices on Monday, including Chief Justice Margaret Workman.

One article of impeachment said Workman and Justice Robin Davis signed documents in their roles as chief justices allowing for senior status judges to be paid higher than allowed wages. Lawmakers say the overpayments violated state law and stopped when they were challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.

Earlier Monday, the Republican-led House of Delegates voted 64-33 to send an impeachment article against Davis to the state Senate for trial. The vote came shortly after lawmakers also impeached indicted Justice Allen Loughry by a vote of 64-33. Loughry’s impeachment vote, which came after approximately two hours of debate, took only seconds, NPR reported.

Fox reported that one justice escaped impeachment, but that has now changed:

“Justice Beth Walker is the only current justice who has not been impeached as of Monday evening.

Walker was cleared late Monday of an impeachment article for spending $131,000 on renovations after taking office last year. She still faces another article that accuses her and the three other justices of abusing their authority by failing to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over critical matters. Some lawmakers said they didn’t condone Walker’s spending but said it paled in comparison to other justices.”

The Charlotte Observer is now reporting that another vote was held & Justice Walker has been impeached also:

“The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state’s Supreme Court justices.

The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.

Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she made after taking office last year.”

Fox News continues:

“The impeachments do not remove the justices from office. The articles will go to the Senate, which can formally remove the justices only by a two-thirds vote.

The charges were largely related to the justices’ use of state funds to conduct office renovations. Davis spent more than $500,000 on her office and Loughry spent more than $363,000 on his.

Loughry is under federal indictment and named in eight impeachment articles, including allegations he lied about taking home a $42,000 antique desk and a $32,000 suede leather couch.

On Monday, Loughry was impeached under six impeachment articles, including for allegedly driving state vehicles for personal use and of using state-owned computers at his home. He was also impeached for his role in assuring higher pay for senior status judges.

Republican Delegate Tom Fast of Fayette County said he had seen the work done in Davis’ office, including track lighting on the floor. He characterized the renovations as “over-the-top” and said the impeachment article “is one of the more easy ones” for him to support.

However, some legislators said they didn’t support impeaching any justice for wasteful spending, only for articles pertaining to lying, cheating or stealing.

Several lawmakers noted that the Supreme Court has a separate budget and is currently allowed to spend as it sees fit. A proposed constitutional amendment this fall would bring the state courts’ budget partly under legislative control.

But State GOP Delegate John Shott, who helped draw up the impeachment articles, said that if West Virginians do not trust their highest court, “we need to take action to try to rebuild that trust.”

Normally, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices who are elected to serve a 12-year term. However, Menis E. Ketchum resigned from the state Supreme Court in July after he was accused of alleged federal wire fraud. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the state and faces up to 20 years in prison.”

Justice Robin Davis was also impeached after allegedly using $500,000 for office renovations.

Reports are now also adding that state lawmakers had initially overlooked Chief Justice Margaret Workman’s spending of $111,000 on office renovations. So she was also later impeached for her role in allegedly allowing senior-status judges to receive higher wages than allowed by state law. Davis and Loughry have also been accused of this.

Justice Beth Walker was the final justice whom lawmakers voted to impeach after she was found to be guilty of abusing her authority. This article also counted against the other justices. Lawmakers had previously decided to look past her spending $131,000 on office renovations.

The former Justice Menis Ketchum was reported to have stepped down from the bench last month and pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud.

The West Virginia Governor, Republican Jim Justice will be allowed to appoint new justices to replace those who were impeached. He is not required to appoint justices from the same party as the incumbent as well so let the left wing whining begin.
