    Default The Nazi in the White House

    Yeah, there is one.

    WASHINGTON ― A top counterterrorism adviser to President Donald Trump faces growing calls to resign after a series of news reports alleging he has ties to a far-right Hungarian group with historical links to the Nazi party.

    Sebastian Gorka was photographed during the January inaugural ball wearing a medal that foreign policy news site LobeLog later identified as a symbol of membership in the Hungarian Order of Heroes. The group, known as Vitézi Rend in Hungarian, collaborated with the Nazi government during World War II, according to the State Department. Members of the group are ineligible for American visas.

    Gorka did not respond to LobeLog’s request for comment. He later told Breitbart that the medal belonged to his late father, Paul Gorka, who “was awarded a declaration for his resistance to a dictatorship.” The Forward followed up with a series of reports alleging that Sebastian Gorka spent years immersing himself in far-right, anti-Semitic political organizations in Hungary, and is a sworn member of the Vitézi Rend. Gorka ignored requests for comment on the article, and instead issued a denial to a friendly reporter at Tablet after The Forward published the allegations.

    Three Democratic senators on Friday called on the acting deputy attorney general and the secretary of homeland security to investigate whether Gorka, who was born in the United Kingdom, “falsified his naturalization application or otherwise illegally procured his citizenship” by failing disclose membership in the banned Hungarian group. The senators cited The Forward’s reporting.

    Gorka did not address the documented ties between the Vitézi Rend and Nazi Germany in his interviews with Breitbart and Tablet ― and neither outlet brought them up. He has written at length about his father’s suffering under the Nazis during World War II and under the subsequent Communist government in Hungary, but he hasn’t explained how his father came to be a member of a group with Nazi ties.

    I read about this a month or so ago. If true it's another black eye for the administration, but most likely exactly the type of individual Trump seeks for advice.

    I think there might be more than one. Trump is known to have kept a book of Hitler speeches by his bedside. If he's not one, he's a really big fan.

    Just a little bump for the Gorka wannabes in our midst.
    Rattling the teacups.

    Gorka has absolutely no standing in the field of counter terrorism. But he did work for Breitbart.

    If you are an American why don't you know Nazis are usually denied entrance to the US? And those that have gotten here under the radar have all been deported when discovered.
    When Werner von Braun and his cohart of Nazi rocket scientists were smuggled into the US they finally were settled in Huntsville Alabama because the folks there were such bumpkins they wouldn't know a Nazi from a boiled egg. Von Braun managed to live out his life there but at least one of his associate lived long enough the government couldn't overlook his wartime activities and he was deported to West Germany.

    Of course, while managing to live out his life in Huntsville, Von Braun put the first man on the moon.

    Obama, on the other hand, read Lincoln's history working with a Cabinet full of political foes. The deplorables, of course, prefer Trump.

    Gather round while I sing you of Wernher von Braun,
    A man whose allegiance
    Is ruled by expedience.
    Call him a Nazi, he won't even frown.
    "ha, Nazi sch-mazi," says Wernher von Braun.


    Don't say that he's hypocritical,
    Say rather that he's apolitical.

    "once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down?
    That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun.


    Some have harsh words for this man of renown,
    But some think our attitude
    Should be one of gratitude,
    Like the widows and cripples in old London town
    Who owe their large pensions to Wernher von Braun.


    You too may be a big hero,
    Once you've learned to count backwards to zero.
    "in german or in english I know how to count down,
    And I'm learning Chinese," says Wernher von Braun.
