McCain Royally Stuck It To Loyal Running Mate Sarah Palin With Unforgivable Last Insult At Funeral

Published

on

Senator John McCain’s funeral has been set. He has been honored in Arizona and will be honored in DC before he is laid to rest. His pallbearers and guests are a who’s who on the left and the right. Even his mother who is 106 years old will be there to see John off. I watched yesterday as Cindy McCain hugged his coffin and Megyn McCain broke down in tears. The Honor Guard carrying McCain’s heavy casket yesterday draped with a U.S. flag almost dropped it. That would have been horrific but they recovered at the last second.

Even in death, McCain had to make a political statement and snub those he had sparred with. Most notably, President Trump is not invited to his funeral as far as I know. But the ultimate snub was leaving out his 2008 loyal former running mate – former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has been kind in her words over McCain at least from what I have heard. She has previously said that she chooses to remember the good times and there is nothing wrong with that. I think that Sarah’s unforgivable sin here was that she supported President Trump. It was a final insult to Palin and unforgivable.

According to People Magazine, Palin was not sent an invitation and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony:

“Two names you won’t see on the guest list: Trump and Palin,” says a Capitol Hill source with knowledge of funeral plans for McCain, who died of brain cancer Saturday at age 81.

“Invitations were not extended” to the two political figures, confirms Carla Eudy, a fundraiser who has worked with and been friends with the McCain family for decades.

“A source with knowledge of the funeral arrangements adds that several longtime McCain staffers were also removed from the invite list in recent days by Eudy.”

It’s possible according to People that Palin was not invited at the behest of the McCain family. Ironically, this news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for vice president. It’s odd because Sarah Palin never publically feuded with John McCain and she never criticized him out of respect for him.

“My guess is, it came from Cindy,” says a source close to the McCain family. “She is very protective of John’s memory and legacy. She’s also a grieving widow. I think she wants to get through this as best she can.”

Last weekend when the news broke that McCain had passed away from terminal brain cancer, Palin said:

“Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life — and through sacrifice and suffering, he inspired others to serve something greater than self.

“John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.”

Last year, McCain reportedly stated that he regretted ever choosing Palin for his running mate. Instead, he wished he had chosen Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT). Palin described the news as a “gut punch” but refused to blame McCain personally, telling the Daily Mail that she blamed his “ghostwriters” for such reports. Perhaps there was more blame there to go around. Personally, I was shocked to hear Palin had not been invited.

Sarah Palin was what gave life to McCain’s flagging campaign in 2008. She is the reason that the Tea Party got behind McCain, not the other way around. After McCain lost to Obama, the two went their separate ways politically. Palin became an inspirational figure for the Tea Party and for grassroots conservatives in general. McCain campaigned as a conservative in his 2010 re-election race, but became a harsh critic of the Tea Party, calling Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) “wacko birds.”

The Beltway gang blamed McCain’s loss on Palin. But in my opinion, she’s the only thing that gave him a fighting chance and he blew it. I guess McCain convinced himself that Palin was to blame somehow. Or at least it appears that way. Palin seemed to never take offense and she always spoke kindly of McCain. Even after it was obvious she would not be invited to his funeral, Palin did not criticize McCain for it. She’s a better person than I am in that regard.

A source close to the Palin family was quoted as saying: “Out of respect for Sen. McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point. The Palin family will always cherish their friendship with the McCains and hold those memories dear.” John McCain will be laid to rest on Sunday in Annapolis, following several days of memorial events and ceremonies. Instead of remembering him as a warrior Republican, many will remember the pettiness of his final political statement by not inviting Trump or Palin. That’s not a good note to end on in my book.

Avenatti Shares Statements From His Ex-Wives To Prove He’s A Good Guy – Backfires BIG Time!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Chicks On The Right:

Michael Avenatti was arrested on charges of domestic violence last night. He’s out on bail and held a brief press conference, in which he promised that he would be “fully exonerated.”

According to TMZ:

We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”

We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

But LISTEN. He is innocent! NOTHING HAPPENED PLZ DISPERSE!

He’s a decent man. Please ignore the fact that his mere existence proves otherwise.

In order to prove that he’s a decent man, he shared statements from his ex-wives.

That’s fine and dandy and all, but neither of his ex-wives are the alleged victims here, so their statements are virtually irrelevant to me.

Sorry, but I think we should treat Avenatti the same way he treated Kavanaugh. Guilty until proven innocent!

Also, you don’t just randomly get arrested on a domestic violence charge. He posted $50,000 bail. SOMETHING happened.

California Just Hit With A NEW Wave Of Deadly Attack – Not Fires

A norovirus outbreak is sweeping through a shelter for wildfire victims in Northern California, potentially causing diarrhea, fever and body aches in anyone who is infected, The Associated Press reports.

The norovirus is highly contagious and has prompted shelter workers to quarantine infected residents separate from others in the shelter. Staff cleaned the shelter with bleach Wednesday, according to the AP.

The victims of the virus are likely people displaced by the Camp Fire, the most deadly fire in state history after killing at least 56 people. The Camp Fire has wiped out more than 9,000 houses and commercial buildings. It had burned 140,000 acres and was 40 percent contained by Thursday morning, according to the state fire agency Cal Fire.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long met with Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and emergency officials in California Wednesday. The Trump administration officials surveyed the wreckage of the Camp Fire, especially around Paradise, a town of about 27,000 that was 95 percent destroyed by the Camp Fire.

“Every time I come to California I say this is the worst fire I’ve seen. Once again this is the absolute worst,” Zinke said in Wednesday tweet. “Worse than any war zone I saw in Iraq. The heroism of firefighters is amazing.”

“We’ll be here for several years working this disaster,” Long said at a press conference after surveying Paradise, according to NBC News.

“The infrastructure is basically a total rebuild at this point,” Long said. “You’re not going to be able to rebuild Paradise the way it was.”

The Woolsey Fire, a major fire burning in Southern California, has consumed another 98,000 acres and was 57 percent contained by Thursday morning. It has killed at least two people and razed 600 structures, according to Cal Fire.
