John McCain Stuck It To Trump In Final Request Before His Death

Published

on

I simply cannot stand it. John McCain passed away late yesterday at the age of 81. I try not to speak ill of the dead but with McCain, it’s next to impossible for me to do so. Everywhere in the media, it is a slobberfest over the guy this morning. Every politician is out there saying what a patriot and a hero John McCain was. I’m sorry… I just don’t see it that way.

Yes, he served his country with distinction according to most accounts, but it doesn’t excuse the way he behaved in the years that he was in politics. McCain sided more with liberals than conservatives. Most people I have heard from are just choosing to stay silent rather than go off over his passing.

President Trump who had remained silent over McCain stopping his treatment for his terminal brain cancer finally sent his condolences this morning to the McCain family. As with most politicians, they have to be diplomatic over the death of a high-profile politico like McCain. Here are the well-wishes from the White House over McCain’s passing:

“President Donald Trump: “My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!”

“First lady Melania Trump: “Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to the McCain Family. Thank you, Senator McCain, for your service to the nation.”

“Vice President Mike Pence: “Karen and I send our deepest condolences to Cindy and the entire McCain family on the passing of Senator John McCain. We honor his lifetime of service to this nation in our military and in public life. His family and friends will be in our prayers. God bless John McCain.”

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “For John McCain, his country was his life. He was tireless in its service. Courage, determination, and relentless drive made him a great leader.

“‘To me, having served with him in the Senate for 20 years, his support for President Bush’s surge in Iraq at a time when things had been going badly and public support had eroded, was one of the most dramatic, important, patriotic, and selfless actions I had the honor to witness in that body. His presidential aspirations were entirely set aside. He totally deployed his considerable strength and energy to what he believed was best for his country—and in service to those then fighting valiantly for the mission the nation had given them. It was a very contentious debate. His personal dedication and leadership moved a very uncertain decision to a favorable outcome.

“‘His ferocious tenacity for his country was unmatched. America has lost one of its greatest patriots.'”

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. and receive a full dress funeral service at the Washington National Cathedral, The New York Times reported Saturday night. He will also lie in state at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix, a Republican official who is involved with planning told the newspaper. He will then be buried in Annapolis, Maryland.

The honor to lie in the Capitol Rotunda has been bestowed on more than 30 people. Most recently, evangelist, Billy Graham received the honor in March after his passing. Lying in state there is seen as a gesture that is reserved for the country’s “most eminent citizens.” McCain is the 13th senator to receive the honor.

You might remember earlier this year when it was reported that both George Bush and Barack Obama were expected to deliver eulogies at McCain’s funeral. Those close to McCain have informed the White House that they plan to have Vice President Pence attend the senator’s funeral — but not President Trump. That’s is beyond the pale. It’s the McCain family’s choice so they get to say who is there and who isn’t but this strikes me as incredibly vindictive. Looks like McCain stuck it to Trump in one final request before he toddled off this mortal coil.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) ordered all flags to be lowered to half-staff and President Trump ordered the same for the White House flags. At least President Trump is showing the proper respect here and acting presidential. That doesn’t surprise me no matter how he felt about McCain.

John McCain, who was a Vietnam war veteran and a perceived giant of the Senate, died one day after his family announced that he would be discontinuing medical treatment for terminal brain cancer, stating that the “progress of the disease and the inexorable advance of age” had rendered “their verdict.” McCain was diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma in July of 2017.

McCain could have stepped down when he received his prognosis. He chose not to and held on until just after the last election ensuring that his wife Cindy will be appointed to take his place for the next two years. That wasn’t divine providence or happenstance, it was sheer will that brought it about.

May John McCain rest in peace and his family find comfort after his passing, but I will never forget his final request concerning President Trump.

In Historic 9-0 Decision, Supreme Court Totally Shredded Democrats – YUGE!!!!

Published

...

* By

Sometimes the Supreme Court gets it right and in a rarity, leveling a historic 9-0 decision, SCOTUS just sidestepped two major cases concerning partisan gerrymandering. This allows controversial district maps to stand and be used in this fall’s midterm elections just the way they are. That’s great news for Republicans and Democrats are incensed over it. They had their hearts set on redistricting voting districts… i.e. partisan gerrymandering. They will literally do anything to steal an election which includes gerrymandering, having the dead vote and recruiting illegal aliens and refugees to vote. Those are just a few of their favorite tricks.

You have to ask yourself if Dems are willing to illegally and unethically unseat a sitting president simply because he is a Republican and they don’t like him, how far will they go to rig an election? As far as they can possibly get away with, sometimes with the help of government agencies. They bend the rules just as far as they can and had planned to do so in the midterms as well. Their blue wave is more of a drip and now this. Things are just not looking good for leftists in the upcoming elections.

This decision is a huge one from SCOTUS. CNN reported: “The Supreme Court on Monday sidestepped two major cases concerning partisan gerrymandering, allowing controversial district maps to stand and be used in this fall’s midterm elections. The 9-0 ruling authored by Chief Justice John Roberts in a Wisconsin case is a blow to Democrats who argued the Republican-drawn maps prevented fair and effective representation by diluting voters’ influence and penalizing voters based on their political beliefs.”

Democrats won a challenge in a lower court, but the Supreme Court’s decision on the Wisconsin case Monday would limit who can bring such cases in the future. A second case from Maryland involved the Republicans challenging a district map drawn by Democrats. The justices said that a lower court did not act improperly in leaving the map in place. In an unsigned opinion with no dissents, the justices said that the challengers failed to reach the high bar of showing “irreparable harm” that would be necessary for a preliminary injunction to block the map. “Even if we assume — contrary to the findings of the District Court — that plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their claims, the balance of equities and the public interest tilted against their request for a preliminary injunction,” the court said.

The court’s opinion in the Maryland case means that for now, the justices will leave having to answer whether the court can set a standard for when politicians go too far in drawing lines to benefit one party over another for another day. But it also makes it harder to bring it before the high court. This issue is sure to come before the court again, however, and it is one of the reasons it is so important that President Trump select another constitutional originalist to sit on the court when the next vacancy comes up. For instance, Kennedy was seen as the swing vote on this case. Rumor has it he will retire sometime this summer and President Trump will fill his spot. This could solidly weigh the Supreme Court in favor of conservatives for the first time in many years.

On Monday, Justice Anthony Kennedy stayed relatively silent. The last time the Supreme Court heard a major partisan gerrymandering case, in 2004, four conservative justices said the issue should be decided by the political branches, not the courts. But Kennedy was unwilling to bar all future claims of injury from partisan gerrymanders. That stance may soon be moot.

It would seem a whole raft of rulings are going against Democrats and their manipulation of voting. Judges ruled this last week that you can wear clothing with political expressions to the voting booth. That’s a win for free speech, something the left abhors. Democrats are always whining about how unfair the elections are, all the while trying to corrupt the voting process itself. For instance, trying to kill off voter ID. Lately, it hasn’t been working for them, which makes me smile.

This is nothing new for the left. They’ve been doing this for decades where they try to gerrymander districts so Democrats can win more seats even though the majority don’t want them there. When Republicans decided they had had enough and decided to turn the tables and give the Dems a bit of their own medicine, liberals had a meltdown. Unfortunately for the Dems, not all judges are liberal and even the liberal justices on the Supreme Court elected to punt this one.

It appears that Americans are going to give the left an even bigger boot in 2018 than they did in 2016. Good times. The Trump wave is still building and it looks like it’s going to crush the Democrats flat. In the meantime, expect the shrill whining from the left to intensify as they know their time is short and they will fight every inch of the way — including cheating when it comes to elections.

Nunes Announces New Clinton Evidence, Burns Entire Swamp To The Ground

Published

...

* By

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has been at the forefront of fighting DC’s swamp-infested deep state since the beginning. He’s one brave guy and he’s still going after Hillary Clinton. Nunes is far from done with Hillary and she still has an awful lot to fear over her past actions.

Nunes has adamantly stated that Hillary Clinton’s campaign “colluded” with nearly every top official in the Justice Department and FBI. That does not surprise me at all. We all know in our gut that charge is true. The fact that someone like Nunes would come out and boldly proclaim it is heartening.

This is all tied in with the Trump dossier since Clinton was allegedly largely behind that smear tactic aimed at President Trump. Nunes went on Fox News in August where the interview focused on the topic of Trump dossier author Christopher Steele and his ties to Bruce Ohr, a high-level DOJ official who fed the FBI information from the ex-British spy even after he was no longer a source for providing confidential information to the media.

The whole dossier nonsense started out when BuzzFeed published it last year. It contains sensationalized falsehoods about President Trump. I guess Hillary Clinton and the Dems thought it could be used as leverage. Instead, it backfired, spectacularly. Now, Republicans think that the FBI deceived a FISA court into getting permission to spy on Carter Page without disclosing who paid for the dossier.

It came out that it was Clinton’s campaign and the DNC who retained Fusion GPS for the anti-Trump research. All roads in this lead back to Hillary Clinton. Nunes is blaming the media for ignoring Clinton’s involvement as well as Bruce Ohr’s in all this and is stating that the American people “need to know it” and called for the declassification of “an unprecedented amount of information.”

President Trump views this as nothing less than a witch hunt and I agree:

“The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife, Nelly. It was Fusion GPS that hired Steele to write the phony & discredited Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary & the DNC,” he tweeted last week. “Do you believe Nelly worked for Fusion and her husband STILL WORKS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF ‘JUSTICE.’ I have never seen anything so Rigged in my life. Our A.G. is scared stiff and Missing in Action. It is all starting to be revealed – not pretty. IG Report soon? Witch Hunt!”

Trump has also said that he may need to get involved in all this to get to the bottom of it. Especially if the FBI doesn’t provide conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and others with text messages of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whom he has accused of harboring a bias against him.

Hillary Clinton has been held blameless in all this… protected by those who are surrounding her and covering her flank. That includes James Comey and Andrew McCabe, as well as a number of others who are complicit in our intelligence agencies and the media.

Ohr is key in the new Clinton evidence that could burn the entire swamp to the ground:

“Ohr’s wife, Nellie, was employed by Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier in an effort that was funded in part by Democrats, to assist in the cultivation of research on then-candidate Trump. Nunes stressed the need to have her testify too.

“She also was working for Fusion GPS, working for the Clinton campaign,” he said. “So here you have information flowing from the Clinton campaign from the Russians, likely I believe was handed directly from Russian propaganda arms to the Clinton campaign, fed into the top levels of the FBI and Department of Justice to open up a counterintelligence investigation into a political campaign that has now colluded [with] nearly every top official at the DOJ and FBI over the course of the last couple years. Absolutely amazing.”

“Nunes and fellow GOP chairmen Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., have pressed the DOJ for months for documents related to the Russia and Hillary Clinton emails investigations, with some success. However, Nunes complained that the DOJ has been slow to comply.

“He also said there needs to be “an investigation into these top-level people as to how somebody concocted the idea that it’s okay to take information from one political campaign and use it to open up an investigation on the other political — on somebody else’s opposing political party.”

“Nunes and other Trump allies in Congress have said they have seen no evidence that would have justified the Obama administration to open up a collusion investigation into the Trump campaign.

“Asked if there will be accountability in the DOJ and FBI, Nunes declined to say if he expects there to be prosecutions but did emphasize his call to the president to release the unredacted FISA warrant applications to spy on Page.

“The only way there could be accountability is one step at a time and it deals with full and complete transparencies,” Nunes said. Full sunlight on as many of the documents that don’t endanger national security, which from our committee members, we’ve sent a letter to the president, we don’t believe they’re going to jeopardize any sources or methods. And I think people I have said many times are going to be shocked as to what went into a FISA warrant against Carter Page and even more importantly, what did not go into the FISA application, that was not presented to the court involving the information that they had on Carter Page.'”

The obstructionist Democrats are crying foul and saying that this is a GOP effort to discredit the Mueller probe. No, it’s not. It’s an effort to see justice done concerning Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Nunes is determined to hold Clinton accountable. Good.
