McCain’s Confidential Request Just Made Public On Why Trump Was Banned From Funeral

Published

on

The controversial Republican Senator from Arizona who was loved by the American Left and despised by Conservatives, John McCain, died Saturday at the age of 81. Just one day after his family announced that he would be discontinuing medical treatment for his aggressive brain cancer.

Now, a confidential request he made before dying has been made public. McCain, who was known for his temper and his ability to hold grudges told his close friends to ban President Donald Trump from his week-long funeral services.

Here is more on this via LifeZette:

“As the nation mourns the loss of Arizona Sen. John McCain, plans for his funeral — which may not include President Donald Trump, per the request of the deceased senator — are well underway.

Those close to the American war hero, who died Saturday afternoon following a fierce battle with glioblastoma, informed the White House that their plan was to invite Vice President Mike Pence to attend the memorial service to be held at Washington’s National Cathedral — but not President Trump, as The New York Times originally reported in May.

McCain’s relationship with Trump, which played out publicly, has rarely been smooth.

During his presidential campaign, for example, Trump remarked, of McCain’s history as a POW, “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

As NBC News also reported at the time about the incident, “McCain’s wish for Trump to skip his funeral, first reported [in early May] by The New York Times, comes as the two men have had a turbulent relationship, particularly since the 2016 presidential primary when Trump said McCain was considered a war hero only ‘because he was captured’ during the Vietnam War and that Trump preferred military figures who avoided being taken prisoner by the enemy.”

The feelings between the two seemed mutual.

Following Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin, McCain said, “Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naïveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake,” as ABC News and others reported.

The 81-year-old Vietnam POW helped plan his own funeral and made his wish of Trump’s non-attendance at the service known to several people, according to CNN’s reporting on the matter.

Though Trump — if McCain’s and the McCain family’s wishes are respected — may not attend the funeral services, former United States presidents of both parties likely will be there.

Former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are expected to eulogize McCain, as multiple outlets reported.

Social media users, as always, were quick to weigh in on these events and discussions.”

It’s easy to see why McCain would have banned the President from his funeral. They hated each other. And many of us conservatives and those who lost our health insurance coverage thanks to Obamacare can relate to what President Trump felt towards McCain. But there is one thing more he did that’s even worse, he actually banned his 2008 running mate Sarah Palin from his funeral.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“In 2008, she was chosen to be his running mate – potentially just a heartbeat away from the presidency.

But now former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, like President Trump, has been left off the list of invitees to the funeral of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain, according to multiple reports.

“My guess is, it came from Cindy,” a source close to the McCain family told People magazine, referring to the late senator’s widow. “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.”

“My guess is, it came from Cindy. 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.”

– Source close to the McCain family, to People magazine
The message was sent through an intermediary, not directly from the McCain family, according to the report.

An NBC reporter tweeted that a Palin “family source” said, “Out of respect to Senator 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.”

Palin did not immediately respond to a Fox News email sent early Thursday.

A decade ago, it was McCain’s selection of Palin to be his vice president that catapulted Palin to the national political spotlight from relative obscurity in Alaska.

But their relationship quickly grew strained, amid accusations that Palin was often unprepared for media interviews, or had “gone rogue” by ignoring the advice of McCain campaign handlers.

Some critics charged that Palin was more interested in advancing her own career – and popularity among conservative voters — than assuring the success of the McCain-Palin ticket, led by the more moderate McCain.

In May, McCain published a book titled “The Restless Wave,” in which he wrote that he regretted choosing Palin as his running mate instead of his close friend, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

McCain and Palin ultimately lost the White House in 2008 to Barack Obama and Joe Biden.”

Sarah Palin and her family were always loyal to John McCain. She even went as far as to constantly endorse him even though every time she did so she would lose the respect of Conservatives.

She never attacked McCain or his family in public, which the same can’t be said about the McCain family.

Meghan McCain, John McCain’s daughter, spoke out about Sarah Palin after the campaign by writing in a book that Palin brought “drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty” to the losing campaign. Meghan when as far as to write that during the campaign she wondered whether the loss “was Sarah Palin’s fault.”

Does Meghan McCain actually think us Conservatives went out to vote during the 2008 election because of her father? The man responsible at that point for McCain/Feingold and McCain/Kennedy? Really?

VIDEO: Migrant Caravan That Threatened To ‘Drop-In’ On Trump Tears Down Border Fence, Storms Mexico

Published

on

Someone is putting these people up to this, I swear. It’s to close to our midterm election for it to be a coincidence.

Just a few days ago, one of the migrants told Yahoo News that they were going to “drop in” on Trump and that he would have to take them in.

Trump needs to send in the military immediately.

Breitbart is reporting:

“More than 4,000 migrants forced their way into Mexico after storming a border fence with Guatemala.

Video captured by Noticias Telemundo shows the moment when hundreds of migrants force the gate open and rush into Mexico despite officials efforts to keep the migrants out.

Mexican authorities previously vowed to turn back any migrants who did not follow immigration law.

The rush is the latest development for the caravan originating in Honduras, when approximately 1,300 migrants began an organized march to Mexico with some making their way to the U.S. Border.

The caravan caused the Mexican government to announce it would enforce immigration laws and turn back those who did not obtain a visa to travel through country. Despite the threat, the caravan grew in size to more than 4,000, pushing President Donald Trump to state he would remove all financial aid to Central American countries if the migration was not halted.

It remains unclear how many migrants were able to successfully enter Mexico by force.”

The Independent UK reported:

“Migrants in a caravan making its way north through Central America towards the US border have torn down gates and are making their way over a bridge into Mexico – with officials warning the trip will bring swift retribution from the Trump administration.

Young men in the caravan reportedly began on Friday violently tugging at a tall yellow fence in the way of the group before eventually tearing the barrier down. Men, women, and children then began rushing towards the bridge to Mexico that stands about 150 years (137 meters) away.

The fence toppling came just after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray to discuss the caravan, which started in Honduras last weekend.

“It’s a challenge that Mexico is facing, and that’s how I expressed it to Secretary Pompeo,” Mr Videgaray said in a news conference with the US secretary of state.

The Mexican government has asked for assistance from the United Nations refugee agency to help it process migrants arriving on the country’s southern border and seeking refugee status.

Processing those refugee claims could allow the Mexican government to disperse the caravan, and placate President Donald Trump, who is adamantly opposed to allowing any of the individuals into the US.

The caravan that is now at the Mexico border is composed of several thousand Honduran migrants who are seeking to escape violence and poverty in their home country. Mr Videgaray said earlier on Friday that the caravan was composed of some 4,000 people and each could present their claims to enter the country with refugee status.

“We haven’t had a caravan or group of this size seeking refuge at the same time, that’s why we’ve sought the support of the United Nations,” he said on Mexican television.

The Mexican government is taking a different tact with this caravan than a similar one that made its way north earlier this year, similarly drawing anger from Mr Trump.

Unlike that caravan, which made its way into the heartland of Mexico before officials attempted to process claims, the Mexican government this time is focusing on processing the individuals as they arrive on the border.

In response to the advancing caravan, Mr Trump has threatened to instruct the US military to “CLOSE THE SOUTHERN BORDER”, and said that he would cut aid to Central American countries where the migrants are arriving from.

It is not clear if Mr Trump is seriously considering closing the US-Mexico border, and it is not clear that he could conceivably do so, either. But, if he did, experts say that such a closure would have a major impact on the economy and ability of people to travel in and out of the US.”

Watch How Left-Wing Protester Who Harassed 9/11 Widow Reacts When Confronted By Her Large ‘Son’

Oh man, this is the best ever.

Don’t you just love it when angry, hostile left-winger, antifa types turn tail & run when the other side stands up to them.

We need more of this in America!

The Daily Caller is reporting:

Video of a left-wing protester telling an alleged 9/11 widow that her late husband should “rot in the grave” has gone viral.

The harassment of the woman took place in Portland, Oregon, during clashes between Antifa and pro-Trump factions.

The protester screamed at the woman in the video and looked to be ready for a physical confrontation. After the woman said “My husband died in 9/11,” the protester yelled “Good for him! Good. Good. NYPD were a bunch of sodomized — fucking sodomizing immigrants with their bully sticks. Your husband should probably fucking rot in the grave.”

The woman walked on.

However, the leftist protester was not so empowered when a large man approached him and asked, “Did you call my mom out?” (RELATED: Antifa Protesters Block Portland Traffic, Nearly Start Riot During Kimmons Vigil)

The protester said “What?” and then took off running.

“Why are you running?” the man yelled.

There was a standoff between the leftist and far-right protesters, but when a large group of Trump-supporting activists looked to confront him, the man who insulted the widow suddenly lost his nerve.

WATCH:

Extra footage posted on Twitter shows the same man who was harassing the woman earlier running for his life down the street as fast as he could.

A professional skateboarder was mistaken for the man in the video and received death threats.

Oregon Live reported:

Portland professional skateboarder Charlie Wilkins faced violent threats on social media Thursday after video of an Oct. 13 protest went viral that showed an Antifa protester yelling at a woman.

“Your husband, should probably … rot in the grave,” the man rants at the woman, who claimed to be a 9/11 widow.

The man in the video resembles Wilkins, but the skateboarder insists it’s not him.

He and his wife Victoria say they avoid protests and were at a pumpkin patch that day.

“I just think he’s horrible to say that to anybody,” Wilkins told KGW, referring to the protester in the video. “I would never say that to anybody.”

Brandon Farley, who shot the video of the protest, weighed in on Wilkins’ behalf, tweeting:

“I don’t want to ruin an innocent man’s life! Stop this thoughtless tirade, immediately! Get the facts! He’s not the guy in my videos. Keep searching or move on, please.”

Wilkins is a longtime professional skater, and so his image is widely available online, which is likely the reason people made the connection between him and the Antifa protester.”
