Robert J. O’Neill is a former United States Navy sailor. A former U.S. Navy SEAL and special warfare operator, O’Neill was the one who fired the headshots that killed Osama bin Laden during the raid on his Abbottabad compound on May 2, 2011. He’s also a true hero that never claimed to be a victim or used it for political gain.
O’Neill didn’t have much to say about John McCain’s funeral as far as I know. But the one tweet I did see was epic and it had to do with Meghan McCain and the way she took cheap political shots at President Trump during her father’s funeral. O’Neill tweeted, “If my daughter uses my funeral to take petty political jabs, I’m definitely going to haunt her.”
The answering tweets were epic and I could not agree more with his sentiment here. Shame on Meghan McCain and the others who took a time of remembering and grieving for John McCain and turned it instead into a political hate-fest. This should haunt her the rest of her life.
If my daughter uses my funeral to take petty political jabs, I’m definitely going to haunt her.

The New York Post mocked Meghan McCain as “The Meg” on its Sunday cover after she behaved in such a disrespectful and disgraceful fashion. If you don’t get what they are alluding to, “The Meg” is a reference to a plus-sized shark in the late-summer hit movie “The Meg,” starring Jason Staham. It was not meant to be subtle but it is viciously clever.
The New York Post and former Navy SEAL Robert J. O’Neill were not alone either in the brewing backlash against McCain and others who decided to go political during the funeral service for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). It turned into some kind of partisan resist rally Saturday when speakers such as Barack Obama and George W. Bush decided to take jabs at President Trump, who was not invited to the funeral.
Americans noted that John McCain’s 2008 running mate, Sarah Palin, was also not invited. But at the invitation of Senator Lindsey Graham, Ivanka and her husband Jared did attend and sat there as their father and family were humiliated over and over again. The McCains are notorious for holding a grudge and for their unbounded anger.
When other legendary military figures such as O’Neill are disgusted like this, you know you’ve gone way too far. True heroes in my book don’t use their service and sacrifice to climb political ladders for power and wealth.
This new trend of using funerals and eulogies to deliver political messages is really quite disgusting.
Sympathy from death as means to sway public opinion is next level corrupt.
Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves.

Meghan described the death of her father as the passing of “American greatness. The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”
Meghan added, “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.” President Trump’s response to Meghan was only four words… but those words shamed her once again. He said, “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 1, 2018
Barack Obama, who has probably never been subtle in his life, ripped into those he said traffic in “bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage.” “John called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that,” he added. Isn’t it odd how adoring the left is of John McCain now that he’s gone?
One of the things that McCain did to strike back at President Trump was to violate his longstanding and oft-repeated promise to voters to repeal ObamaCare. In July of 2017, McCain would not keep his promise and instead voted against the repeal of Obamacare. McCain reportedly said to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), “Let’s see Donald make America great again now,” which was an obvious reference to the president.
As McCain betrayed the pledge that he made to the American people, he got his revenge on Trump or at least he thought he did. His lone vote was the one that saved Obamacare and devastated most Americans over it. That’s a heck of a legacy and it has nothing to do with valor, courage or loyalty.
My father was neither famous, nor did he have enemies. But when he died, my only concern was that he ascend to heaven surrounded by love and dignity. Meghan McCain’s eulogy weaponized her own love, and trivialized her father. It was an embarrassment.

Bush was a bit more subtle in his attack. He described McCain as a man who “respected the dignity inherent in every life – a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators.” You get the drift here.
The audience, which should have been somber and dignified in their honoring the passing of McCain applauded as if they were at a political rally or a campaign stop rather than a funeral for a legitimate war hero and long-term senator. Many in the media and the political elite were there.
I totally understand O’Neill’s disgust at Meghan’s and other’s behavior – it dishonored John McCain and it was petty. Many people were shocked and saddened that a war hero’s death would be treated so shabbily by his daughter. But then again… like father like daughter. Meghan’s grief is no excuse here.
At most funerals I’ve attended, it’s God’s love that fills the room, not hate and animus for a person who is not even in attendance.

I lost a woman I loved more than almost anyone this year. It never once dawned on me to eulogize her by throwing in some digs at people she or I may have disliked. I was too busy celebrating and honoring her and feeling sad to even allow adversarial thoughts or speech to enter.

Spotted among the McCain mourners: Tom Brokaw, Jay Leno, Charlie Rose, Rudy Giuliani, Jared and Ivanka, Dikembe Mutombo (?), Huma Abedin, Michael Ian Black, Jake Tapper, Leon Wieseltier. “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.”

Sadly, @MeghanMcCain seemed to do exactly what she slammed Trump for doing. What should have been reflection and celebration of a patriot’s life, has been turned into political theatrics and cheap shots. It’s embarrassing, and really disappointing. https://t.co/xVK1PxOkVf

I note that, thanks to his enemies, Trump – without even trying – managed to be the star of the McCain funeral.
And a lot of people in the establishment in the press think today was a victory for them.

HUGE Message To Kavanaugh Accuser Flying High In The Sky Over Her House
As of today, it is being reported that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. The details and arrangements are still vague but Judge Kavanaugh is eager to clear his name. I’m eager to see this whole circus end so we can get on with the confirmation process.
Pilot David Siever flew a plane on September 20th over the psychology professor’s house with a giant banner attached that read, “Thank you, Christine, We have your back.” That was a huge message of support for Ford. It would seem there are a lot of women who are supporting her in all of this even though, in my opinion, her credibility is comparable to swiss cheese.
UltraViolet, a women’s rights group paid for the flight and the banner. The plane flew over gathered protesters who were marching to Ford’s home as a show of support for her after she accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. There were approximately three dozen women in the protest group and a few men as well.
This same group had already written a “Dear Christine” letter that many of them signed this week in support of the Palo Alto professor. The group linked arms as they marched in front of her home and chanted, “Protect Christine! Protect Christine.” The rally was cobbled together at the last moment and protesters were mostly comprised of Palo Alto mothers and neighbors showing solidarity for Christine Blasey Ford.
Ford has also been celebrated and supported in the #MeToo movement. She is also allegedly the victim of harassment and death threats. However, her local supporters are all in for her. “We believe Christine,” they chanted. “Her story is our story!”
This particular rally was yet another effort to support Ford after she came forward in an article in the Washington Post to share her identity and her allegations against Kavanaugh.
But what these people don’t address is the fact that she can’t recall the year it happened, where it happened, when it happened, who hosted the party, who was there, who brought her or who took her home. Frankly, I’m not buying it.
Ford is claiming that sometime in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh was “stumbling drunk” when he and a friend forced her into a bedroom at a high school party, then groped her, tried to strip off her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams. One of his friends, Mark Judge, interrupted the assault, she alleges, giving her the chance to flee.
Kavanaugh is denying all of this and says it never happened. So is Mark Judge. Originally, Ford was insisting that before she would testify an FBI investigation had to be done. She changed that and then insisted that Kavanaugh testify first, not be in the room when she testifies, that no attorneys be present and that Mark Judge be subpoenaed to testify.
The Senate Judiciary Committee balked and said that they do not subpoena witnesses. They also pointed out that Kavanaugh should testify after Ford so he can answer charges against him and face his accuser. He also has a right to counsel in all this. Ford has still not said exactly what terms she agrees to for testifying next week.
A candlelight vigil on a Palo Alto street corner is planned for Sunday night. Letters of support are being stuffed into her mailboxes at home and at her office, and a GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay Ford’s legal bills.
Worth noting that this is exactly where we were on Monday morning— without agreeing to a date, time, and terms we are no closer to hearing from Dr Ford then we were when her lawyers said Dr. Ford was willing to testify during their media tour
6 days agohttps://t.co/KUEKdeRegR
— Senator Hatch Office (@senorrinhatch) September 22, 2018
Ford’s actual testimony next week is still very much in doubt:
“Fox News was told that Debra Katz, one of the lawyers representing Ford, requested that a hearing be set for Thursday — a request the Republicans on the committee had initially rejected, offering Wednesday instead.
“Grassley did not immediately respond to the letter, but a senior White House official told Fox News that it represented a request to continue negotiations about the terms on which she testifies without any firm commitment.
“It’s a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday,” the official said.
“Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who sits on the committee, tweeted that “we are no closer to hearing from Dr. Ford than we were when her lawyers said Dr. Ford was willing to testify during their media tour 6 days ago.'”
I am highly suspicious of this eleventh-hour victim coming forward with an unsubstantiated claim from 36 years ago against Kavanaugh. It seems she has a number of supporters but I would say there are far more out there that have a problem with her story. I guess we will know more when and if she testifies.
AWFUL: Michelle Caught Ripping Off Taxpayers To Get Filthy Rich – She’s REALLY Raking It In!
Michelle Obama’s book tour is ramping up to get started, she will be visiting 12 cities in her rockstar tour.
During this tour, she also plans to plug and endorse Democrats running for office, and encourage minority voters to get out to the voting sites. However, while this looks like female empowerment, overcoming and finding yourself from the outset, it’s apparently not all that it seems. There’s a much bigger motive and goal with this tour.
But first, lets take a quick look at what she says she’ll be promoting in her book, which thousands of people are paying top dollar to come and hear her speak about. This is far beyond rockstar cash for even the best seats at a legendary concert.
Michelle just set the title for her memoir as Becoming. Becoming what? A woman? Maybe this secret is too much for her to bear, Downtrend reported, clearly concerned for what Michelle Obama is actually trying to accomplish with this book tour.
“I am proud of what I have created. I’m proud because it is candid, it’s honest, it’s totally and utterly me. I’m also a little frightened because it is so candid and honest and open,” Michelle said in the promotion of her tour in a rather strange video.
After serving as the first lady for eight years, you’d think Americans would already know everything about her. What’s there to be scared of? It remains unclear what exactly she created. I’m partially inclined to want to know what she could possibly come up with the fill her arrogant soul and attribute an actual creation to herself of such magnitude that it’s life-altering to all.
My curiosity just isn’t enough to spend a single cent on her book at the probable risk of being let down by some self-indulgent claim she’s contrived. It will likely be something to the tune of empowering women to be brave and bold like her and referring to herself as a world changer.
Now, if she were to really be “candid, honest, totally and utterly me,” as she claims, then she would answer some of our most burning questions about her personally. I think we all have a couple or at least one …about her appearance…in mind. It’s doubtful that’ll ever happen. This book is all about the bucks she can make on it, even if it means tricking people into reading and leaving them feeling let down.
But none of that matters, because no one can afford to go to her book tour speaking events, but somehow, enough people have saved up to pay these ridiculous prices and are buying the up…but for what? Apparently, she is setting prices as though she is her BFF Beyoncé. We all know Michelle’s fame girl crush on Beyoncé, as she used her position as First Lady to mingle with the Queen Bey and other Hollywood superstars, instead of politicians and influencers.
Would you pay anywhere in the price range of $500-$2,000 for decent to good seats in a big arena setting? Those who do deserve to be disappointed at getting a lot less than what Michelle is promising.
According to The Grio, Michelle now has seemingly assumed the role she may have always wanted of rockstar and top celeb, with demanding ticket prices to hear her talk about herself that are as pricy, if not much more than the biggest names in the entertainment industry ever.
The Grio reports:
Michelle Obama’s pre-sale tickets for her Becoming book tour, which went on sale Thursday, have people clutching their pearls and their purse strings at the rockstar level prices, the Washington Post reports.
The former first lady is gearing up to hit the road for a 12-city tour, but her ticket prices shocked fans because of what many call Beyonce-level costs. Still, Obama is selling out, so much so that what started as a 10-city tour talk evolved into two more cities being added, being the total to 12. The tour will end in Jay-Z’s hometown of Brooklyn. Maybe a Bey and Jay appearance is on the way after all!
In any event, while $29.50 seems fitting, that price is for a nosebleed seat. To get a closer glimpse of Obama, you’ll have to shell out up to $3,000 for front-row seats which reportedly includes a “pre-show photo opportunity,” meet-and-greet reception with Obama, a signed book and other perks, including an “exclusive VIP gift item.”
Twitter fans, however, are still not feeling coughing over so many coins.
“I love Michelle Obama, I do,” a fan wrote on Twitter. “She is everything. But I am sorely disappointed in how expensive these book tour tickets are.”
“Michelle Obama is out here selling Beyoncé priced tickets and I was not prepared,” another wrote.
But others support the ticket prices, saying Obama has earned her keep for this country.
“You don’t see it every day, but she’s not a typical author,” said Deborah Speer, an editor for concert-industry trade magazine Pollstar. “Michelle Obama is kind of a rock star herself.”
“I don’t want to hear a single word about Michelle Obama’s ticket prices,” one fan wrote. “She worked for this country for FREE for eight years. Get that money, Mrs. Obama.”
“Truly humbled by the response to my upcoming book tour,” she wrote on Twitter. “I can’t wait to share BECOMING with all of you & hope to see you somewhere along the way!”
If the Obama’s are “for the people” then why price gouge them, why make it so regular people can’t attend? If Michelle wants her message to get to the people she’s missing the mark.
Hopefully, she makes the book price a little more favorable to the people she says she represents. It’ll likely be discounted to a super sale price soon anyway, just like Hillary’s latest book.
