President Donald Trump and Judge Maryanne Barry, his sister.

Here’s one judge that Donald Trump loves. Federal Judge, Maryanne Barry, his older sister.

Judge Barry, is a Senior United States Circuit Judge of the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. She was first appointed to the federal bench during the Reagan administration. The Clinton administration promoted her again.

In 2004, she was presented with a public service award by Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O’Connor.

Many presidents have had close relationships with a sister. It is almost eerie. Abraham Lincoln looked to Sarah. Her death broke his heart. John Kennedy was disconsolate when he lost his sister, and best friend, Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy. He vicariously thrilled with her adventures and they shared many secrets together.

 

President Jimmy Carter was close to his sister, Ruth Carter Stapleton.

The George H.W. Bush family.

When George and Barbara Bush called young George, Jr. out of school in Texas, and had him get into the car, to tell him that his sister, Robin had died, he was stunned. He had known that something was wrong. He had begged to play with her at Kennebunkport, Maine that summer but they kept them apart, fearing that young George would be too rough.

Now, weeks later in Texas, told that she had died, he kept repeating, in between sobs, “Why didn’t you tell me, why didn’t you tell me.” He had not been given the chance to say goodbye.

Thomas Jefferson’s sister, Martha, was widowed at a young age and spent much of her life at Monticello, running her brother’s estate.

President Rutherford B. Hayes was close to his sister, Fanny. As children, when one got sick, the other one nursed them back to health. Rutherford used to pull his sister around on a sled.

When President Chester Arthur’s wife died, his sister, Molly McElroy, had to step in as first lady, to run the White House and take care of his little girl.

Theodore Roosevelt’s sister, Anna Roosevelt Cowels, “Bamie,” was so talented that Alice Roosevelt once said that she should have been the president.

In the soon to be released book, GAME OF THORNS, you will read about President Donald Trump’s older sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.  When candidate Trump tangled with Megyn Kelly of Fox News, his big sister was there to reassure him. “Just be yourself.”

When the Access Hollywood tape was released, and all seemed lost, she and others counseled calm.

Journalists and television pundits are quick to point out that no president has ever had a sister serving as a judge. It’s true. But some have been close.

President George Washington’s nephew, Bushrod Washington, served on the Supreme Court.

President Zachary Taylor’s sister in law was the daughter of the famous Supreme Court Justice, John McLean.

President William Henry Harrison’s sister was married to a judge.

President John Tyler’s son in law was a judge. He became one of Tyler’s closest confidantes.

President James Buchanan’s brother was the US Attorney for Western Pennsylvania.

President John F. Kennedy’s brother was appointed Attorney General.

Then there is the big one. President William Howard Taft actually, later, became the tenth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

As you will learn in GAME OF THORNS, Donald Trump is close to his family members, that’s why his mind turned to them on the night he was declared the President –Elect.

“Truly, great people,” Trump told the nation, “I’ve got a great family.”

 


Sean Hannity, the Rodney Dangerfield of Network Anchors

February 12, 2017

“I get no respect.” – Rodney Dangerfield

Okay, it’s happened again so I’ve got to say something. Sean Hannity quizzed super attorney Jay Sekulow on the Hannity Show Friday night and solved the whole travel ban issue. It was a brilliant exchange. You can see it here.

So Saturday, all day, anchor after anchor and guest after guest all over television, repeated, line by line the issues of the travel ban, each coming to the same conclusions, although far less succinct than the brilliant Jay Sekulow.

They had on the illustrious former Harvard, law professor, Alan Dershowitz, and many other talented attorneys, one by one, guest by guest, they repeated the formula.

Doug & Myriam Wead and Joshua with Sean Hannity.

So did any of the anchors or experts even mention Friday night? And Hannity? And Sekulow? “As was enunciated last night…” Nooooo.

When he’s wrong, you’ll hear about it. But when he’s right, which is pretty systematically, night after night, Sean Hannity gets no respect.

 


Breaking news: President threatens journalist with violence !

February 9, 2017

If Americans haven’t already had enough, the President has now threatened a journalist with violence. The president’s crude remarks implied that he would injure the man’s genitals and smash his face. He also attacked the man’s ancestry.

This president already has the lowest approval rating of any other in American history. His profanity laced speeches and public comments have demeaned the office. And some of his crude private remarks, which have come to light, are deeply offensive to decent women and young ladies.

I am speaking, of course, about Harry S. Truman. Often ranked by historians as one of the greatest presidents in American history.

While the national media gives the impression that Donald J. Trump’s approval rating is at record lows, it is actually twice as high as Harry Truman’s low moment, which once dipped to 22%.

The media says that Trump’s contempt for them is dangerous and a threat to democracy, but it pales when compared to Harry Truman, Richard Nixon and even Bill Clinton. Both Truman and Clinton threatened physical violence against journalists in their time. Clinton threatened to punch William Safire in the face when he called his wife, Hillary Clinton, a congenital liar in a column in the New York Times.

Truman, like Trump, was incensed about how his daughter was being treated. Donald Trump saw Nordstrom’s drop her line of merchandise, their nod to the politically correct Leftists, who now berate the American people in street riots and entertaining YouTube messages filled with the F word.

President Harry Truman directed his anger at a music critic who panned his daughter, Margaret. But Truman was far more belligerent than Donald Trump. He called the writer, an “eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.”

Said Truman, “It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”

Read GAME OF THORNS: Inside the Clinton-Trump campaigns of 2016.

History deprived journalists, some obvious products of the American public school system, without the advantages of a private education, which presidents and their children enjoy, are quick to label everything that Trump is doing as unprecedented and alarming. Which may reveal more about them than about Trump.

The only thing unprecedented is his non political way of running the office. Which is rather comforting to those of us who were hoping he wasn’t a politician.

Read GAME OF THORNS: Inside the Clinton-Trump campaigns of 2016.

And then there is the fact that he seems to be keeping his word. Now, that’s a switch from recent occupants of the White House.

How well we remember.”Read my lips no new taxes.”

Or, “I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.”

Or, “The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.”

Or, “You can even keep your own doctor.”

No, Trump hasn’t threatened to punch anybody in the nose, like Truman. He doesn’t have a Fiddle and Faddle on staff to service his sexual needs as did allegedly, John F. Kennedy. He hasn’t appointed his best friend to run the IRS, which Hillary Clinton did, who  then just happened to audit the president’s enemies, including the women who accused her husband of sexual assault.

At some point, hyper ventilating, arrogant journalists, who insisted that American had to choose between Trump and Clinton, and no one else, must accept the results of an election they tried to manipulate. So let us get on with restoring the greatness of America.

You journalists have your job, dictating to all the rest of us how to talk and think and live, how about letting us get a paying job for ourselves?

Thanks, President Trump, for Carrier, for Ford and now for Intel. And thanks for refusing to take your own salary. Nobody mentions that. And like all the presidents before you, keep standing up for your daughter! That’s a dad’s right. All dad’s. Even if that dad is president.
