It is no secret how I feel about Senator John McCain (R-AZ). I do not care for the man and never have. I think that since he has fallen ill he has gotten even more vindictive and petulant towards President Trump. McCain’s temper and vitriolic hatred are legendary. While I feel for him and his family concerning his terminal diagnosis with brain cancer, I cannot condone his political machinations even at this late stage of the game.
McCain did not step down when he became ill so someone could take his place. Now, with his passing, it is almost a certainty that his wife will be chosen to take his place for the next two years. That was not happenstance. It was planned. I have respect for the dying but that respect is tempered with disgust by politics played to the very end.
President Trump does not care for McCain either and he’s not shy about letting it be known either. He did not pay tribute to the senator in his public address Friday after the former prisoner of war announced he was stopping treatment for his aggressive brain cancer. And I do not blame him for not doing so. Liberals are furious over the sleight.
Trump was not joined in his silence by many Republicans. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell offered their prayers and support to McCain after his family made the sad announcement yesterday. But the president, who has publicly clashed with McCain since the beginning of his 2016 presidential campaign, has been notably silent. You know why? Because to say something he does not believe is hypocrisy and Trump has zero respect for McCain.
President Trump gave a speech at a fundraising dinner for the Ohio Republican Party in Columbus, Ohio. He addressed illegal immigration, the failure of the Democrats and the biased media. But not once did he deign to mention the 35-year veteran of Congress who Trump has frequently sparred with over recent years.
Democrats & liberals sounded off on social media about Trump’s silence.
McCain is painted as a great senator, but in reality, he is not a true Republican or a conservative in any sense of the word. He’s a moderate at best and a progressive at worst and he would have been far more at home in the Democratic Party who he voted with frequently.
At one point in this feud, Trump claimed that McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured and tortured in Vietnam. “I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump said in July 2015. There were many who were outraged by that statement, but there were also many who agreed with it. It didn’t phase me much one way or the other.
Trump’s silence over McCain was not the norm this week. There was an outpouring of support for McCain from many Republicans. “I would just ask each and every one of you to hold John McCain in your prayers,” Ryan said on Friday. “John is obviously entering the last stages, and this is a man who served our country in so many ways and capacities — who was a prisoner of war for several years at the Hanoi Hilton and then fought for us in Congress, and we just want to keep John McCain, Cindy, and their entire family in our prayers.”
As much as I dislike McCain, I would say the same thing. But I still don’t hold it against the president for not giving fake condolences to a man he does not care for. That’s a personal decision.
And let’s be blunt here. That dinner was to boost Republican candidates in Ohio. It was meant to address issues that are plaguing this nation. To mention McCain would have been a diplomatic move but Trump was more concerned with what is tearing us apart as a nation… illegal immigration. That makes the left furious.
Democrats would rather pay tribute to a dying John McCain than they would to Mollie Tibbetts who was murdered by an illegal alien. Where is the outrage over the left’s silence over her death? Over Mollie’s permanent separation from her family during this lifetime? They have no room to criticize the president here in my opinion.
Trump says “what happened to Mollie is a disgrace.” And it is. “Democrat immigration policies are destroying innocent lives and spilling very innocent blood,” Trump said. “We believe that any party that puts criminal aliens before American citizens should be out of office, not into office.” That’s true… and the left is outraged over him not mentioning McCain. SMH.
You would think it was a monstrous sin to not mention a dying Senator John McCain at a Republican dinner. But in reality, it wouldn’t have mattered if Trump had wept crocodile tears for McCain… the left would still rip him over it. It’s better to say nothing if in your heart you don’t feel sympathy for someone. It’s not the political thing to do, but it is the honest thing to do. And the Democrats just can’t stomach it because they consider McCain as one of their own.
Sarah Sanders Laughs In Hateful CNN Host’s Face After Catching Him In Huge Lie During Live Interview
Chris Cuomo must have really thought he had a “gotcha” moment when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders agreed to an interview with him for his CNN show, “New Day.” CNN ratings have been sinking faster than the Titanic in recent times.
Routinely called out for selective coverage and significant bias, as well as flat out “fake news” Cuomo likely thought he could regain some credibility as a “serious journalist” by baiting Sanders. Cuomo did not disappoint launching into the expected diatribes and the usual lies regarding the Trump administration.
Cuomo asked Sanders if she liked her job as press secretary for President Donald Trump. Sanders naturally answered in the affirmative and went on to tout accomplishments by the Trump administration citing the strong economy and President Trump’s recent legislation benefiting veterans. Realizing he had no method of attack here, Cuomo then chose to wonder aloud, inquiring if Sanders believes the president’s contention with the media is sustainable.
Sounding much like junior high boy passing notes stating “Do you like me? Check ‘yes’ or ‘no’?” Cuomo asked: “Do you think that by saying, ‘We stink,’ that we don’t like veterans, that we are bad for America, the president says we are enemies of America, do you think that that works for you long-term?”
Sanders all but laughed in his face and retorted sharply:
“ What I think is important to remember is that you guys get to ask the questions, but you can’t always complain about the answers,” Sanders shot back. “You constantly ask the same question over and over and over again and expect different answers and then get mad when the answers don’t change.”
Realizing this interview was not going in the direction he wanted it to go, Cuomo attempted to cut Sanders off, interjecting with: “Yeah, that’s the job, that’s the job!”
Sanders returns fire with a truth bomb Cuomo cannot refute, stating: “No, the job is to get information and to report the news!”
That must have been a bitter pill for Cuomo to swallow, but Sanders was not finished with her total annihilation of this journalistic hack. She adds: “Unfortunately, you guys quit reporting the news. When I can read a news story and I have no idea what side of the story the reporter is on, that’s a good news story. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of news that looks like that [on CNN].”
Sanders simply does not suffer fools, nor does she engage in silly word games where one side tries to convince the other that the grass is not indeed green. She refuses to engage in the media spectacle CNN’s Jim Acosta and April Ryan attempt to create during White House press briefings.
Naturally, Cuomo got his dander all up at Sanders’ suggestion that he is a mere opinion journalist and then attempted to make the ridiculous claim that Sanders does answer the public’s questions during White House press briefings.
Sanders was having none of Cuomo’s attempts to deflect. “I answer questions all day, every day,” Sanders retorted. “It’s what I spend every minute of the day doing. It’s why I’m sitting here at 9 o’clock at night answering questions to you.”
Cuomo is known for touting the leftist party line and citing approved propaganda from the Democratic party line for line. He has been caught in lie after lie, yet manages to keep his job at CNN because his brother is the governor of New York and his father was the former governor of the same. Without his family connections? He would be asking such riveting questions as, “Would you like fries with that?”
In 2015, Cuomo repeated the lie “a video started the Benghazi attack” siding with Hillary Clinton’s account of the events that occurred. He to this day denies any wrongdoing on the part of the Obama administration. The key to journalistic integrity is being willing to hold anyone and everyone accountable for their actions regardless of political affiliation. It seems Cuomo missed that memo.
Hot Air reported on Cuomo’s coverage of the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October of 2015:
“In preparation for this long-anticipated event, CNN’s Chris Cuomo took the opportunity to interview committee member Martha Roby (R – Alabama 2) regarding what we should expect out of this Q&A session. It’s definitely a newsworthy topic which has captured the nation’s attention, but Chris might have wanted to prepare a bit more before the interview. He managed to get nearly everything wrong with his questions and seemed genuinely shocked when he failed to fish out the answers he was looking for.
Here are just a few of the premises which Cuomo fed into the interview. Let’s see how he did.
Cuomo: “But then you get to legitimate questions of well, what else are you going to learn? You’ve had the secretary, the former secretary now, for over six hours. She spoke specifically to what she knew before, during and after. She gave you answers that may not have been satisfying to you, but she gave answers. She talked to you about the threat. She talked to you about her recognition of the threat. She talked to you about her response to the threat.”
That’s certainly a damning accusation. Unfortunately, there are just a few details which Cuomo got wrong.
Hillary Clinton has never testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. She testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for two and a half hours in January of 2013. (Worth noting that it was controlled by Democrats at the time.) She also testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee for three hours in the same month, which was more than two years before we got any of her emails.
Here’s another golden Cuomo moment:
“[Secretary Clinton’s] been the target. You’ve had members of your party, members of this committee, say that it is about her, they were going after her, you had Kevin McCarthy bragging about bringing down her poll numbers, you had that sentiment echoed by other Republican congressmen. So it’s not just me who’s bringing up this cynicism.”
That would make a great talking point except for the fact that the only two Republicans who have said anything of the sort are not on the committee and have no direct knowledge of anything that the committee has done.”
Just last week Cuomo made the wild claim that there was “proof of potential collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign. Except, there isn’t, except maybe in Cuomo’s mind. Rather than actually look at the facts, Cuomo chose to go head to head with Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-R) who blew him out of the water exposing his propaganda peddling for the lies it is. Facts are pesky sometimes.
Jordan stated plainly the federal government lied when it obtained Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. He also stated it relied on a false dossier to prop up its case during the course of his interview with Cuomo.
Cuomo attempted to refute:“They did disclose where the dossier came from. It is not all false allegations in that dossier.” Any judge worth the black robe he or she dons daily while sitting the bench and takes their pledge to ethics seriously would not approve a warrant if they knew the evidence was a bought and paid for unverified dossier by Hillary Clinton. Nevermind, there is an active and ongoing investigation by the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) currently.
Jordan was incensed at Cuomo’s obvious lies and attempts to peddle propaganda and replies: “You know this to be the case even though you have never seen the FISA application yourself?”
Cuomo had nothing much to say after that, yet he still continues to promote the ridiculous and completely false narrative: “no one spied on the Trump campaign” even after Democrats were forced to publically acknowledge that it was true.
Cuomo and others like him seem to forget that there is a huge difference between “Freedom of the Press” and actual investigative reporting. It is the polar opposite of allowing “The Onion” or “Mad Magazine” to show up and attempt to interfere with the ability of actual journalists to have open and respectful communication between the American people and The White House in seeking answers to questions we have.
Repo Truck Met Its Match, Ford SUPER DUTY Does Some Serious Damage!
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Speed Society
Let’s face the facts: nobody wants to get their vehicle repossessed. Whether or not you had it coming, it’s not a feeling that anyone wants to go through as you watch your vehicle leave on the back of a tow truck. When it comes time for the deed to be done, insult is added to injury as you now not only have to catch up on your note or pay off a lien to get your vehicle back but you also need to pay to get the car or truck out of impound which can be the icing on the cake for those who are faced with a situation like this as it unfolds in their lap.
Now, normally, in such a stressful situation, we could maybe see someone getting a touch confrontational with the tow truck driver, however, this Ford pickup truck owner decided to take a dive off of the deep end. Instead of handling his business in the proper channels, he decided that his best course of action, given the situation presented, would be to try and drive away while his Super Duty pickup was strapped to the back of the tow truck! We have to admit that this thing put up a little bit more of a fight than we had expected it to!
If you follow along down below, you’ll be able to catch up with the moment as this truck driver simply wasn’t having it and decided to lash out! This might be one of the craziest videos that we’ve featured here at Speed Society of a repo gone wrong. Even while watching from this side of the screen, it manages to make your heart jump a little bit so just imagine being on location and watching all of this happen live!
Repo man wins again!

Maybe this Repo guy learned his lesson, but this cocky Corvette should have learned sooner:
Road rage happens all over, but this video is something quite different that is sure to have people gasping for air. It was all caught on film as two motorists were battling when a truck was forced to merge into a single lane of traffic but a cocky Corvette driver wouldn’t let them in. What transpired on film has been viewed almost a million times by now and it keeps going! It’s the road rage that keeps on raging.
It all went down when the truck kept trying to get into the single lane. We’re not sure why everyone was merging, but from the looks of the video, it seems like everyone was being forced into a single lane. As the truck tried to get in, the Corvette driver kept inching up and blocking the truck. They wouldn’t let the truck in, even though it seemed like people had no choice other than to merge. At this point, the truck keeps trying to merge, before they’re stuck running off the road or into a lane that might be blocked off. The Corvette driver moves up and then proceeds to give the truck driver the middle finger.
Not only was the Corvette driver being a nuisance and playing with traffic, but they were also being quite disrespectful as well. Of course, we don’t know what transpired directly before this video happened. Perhaps the truck driver was being a jerk too, but of course, we don’t have footage from before this particular incident. It’s quite possible that both drivers were being aggressive towards each other and they’re both wrong. However, the truck driver sure got the best of the Corvette driver and this road rage video certainly provided us with quite a moment filled with “wow” factors after we saw what happened.
Watch the road rage video unfold.
Did you see that! A massive cloud of black smoke just filled that Corvette like it was lava taking over Hawaii. That was brutal! When we said gasping for air, that’s what we were talking about! Were they right to do this? That’s for you to decide. Was the Corvette driver right to keep blocking the truck out of merging and giving the finger? That’s for you to decide too!
Just to have some fun, what if this was Donald Trump driving the truck and Bernie Sanders driving his sports car? Would Trump smoke him out? Bernie got yanked from his own election when the DNC shoved his socialist self to the side for their main lady Hillary Clinton, so there’s no telling how easily Bernie Sanders would give in if it came down to a road rage video like this. What if Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were driving the Corvette? Even better, what if Sarah Sanders was driving the truck and the owner of the Red Hen was driving the Corvette? Would that be the road rage battle of the century?
We don’t condone violence, but we know road rage is a thing that happens every once in a while. Sometimes you just have a bad day like Michael Douglas in ‘Falling Down.’
Now it’s time to debate! Who is right? Who is wrong?
Who won the road rage battle? The truck driver or the Corvette driver?
