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.

Major Staff Upheaval Underway NOW At White House – Trump’s Had It!
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Reuters
Another round of upheaval engulfed President Donald Trump’s White House on Tuesday, with the future of several senior aides in doubt just a week after U.S. congressional elections.
Three Trump cabinet members – Chief of Staff John Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke – could soon be gone, said sources familiar with internal discussions in the Republican administration.
Turnover among White House personnel paused during the run-up to last week’s elections after senior Republicans asked Trump to refrain from firing staff, hoping to minimize perceptions of disorder.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out by Trump last week just hours after the results came in from the Nov. 6 elections, which handed majority control of the House of Representatives to Democrats.
Trump’s first 22 months in office have seen frequent shakeups. A study this year by the Brookings Institution, a think tank, found Trump’s White House has had the highest turnover of senior-level staff of the past five presidents.
In an unusual move, sources said, Trump was also ready to dismiss Mira Ricardel, deputy national security advisor, at the request of his wife, Melania Trump, after a clash between the two over the first lady’s recent trip to Africa.
Melania Trump’s office acknowledged the acrimony.
Trump was expected to remove Nielsen, a source close to the White House said. Nielsen took the job after Trump made Kelly his chief of staff. But now the president is considering getting rid of both them, the source said.
Zinke has been under investigation for several ethics controversies including travel and a business deal in his home state of Montana, casting doubt on how long he would remain at the helm of the agency.
A final decision on his future could be postponed beyond this week. He is scheduled to travel to California on Wednesday and Thursday to visit communities hit by deadly wildfires, the Interior Department said on Tuesday.
Trump last week said Zinke was doing an “excellent job” but left open the possibility of replacing him. “We’re looking at that, and I do want to study whatever is being said,” Trump told reporters last week.
Adding to the sense of upheaval at the White House, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was planning to file more indictments in his 18-month investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, sources said.

Florida Dems Blindsided By Attorney General – She Demands Criminal Investigation
In an effort that promises to go on at least until December to recount votes in Florida’s races for U.S. Senate, governor, and the state agriculture commissioner. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has now called for criminal investigations into ”irregularities” in the vote counting and the handling of ballots in two South Florida counties by Broward County’s Brenda Snipes who as is being reported now also was lucky enough to “find ballots” in 2012.
Here is more via Breitbart:
“Broward County, Florida election official Brenda Snipes — who is continuing to find new ballots in the recent statewide midterm elections for Governor and the U.S. Senate — was previously accused of finding ballots after an election in 2012.
Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers exclusively told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight‘s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour that Snipes allegedly “found ballots” following an election in 2012.

She’s also been accused of illegally opening ballots. The Florida GOP sued her for this and when they brought her to court, they said ‘Hey, your office is opening ballots outside the presence of the canvassing board … what’s your explanation?’ And again, the woman in charge of elections in Florida’s second most populous county argued she thought it was okay because her office didn’t understand the meaning of the word ‘canvassing.’ [Emphasis added]
This is also not the first time that her office has just found ballots. There was actually a canvassing official back in 2012 that complained that heading into a weekend, they were told there were about 150 votes left to be counted and then Monday morning, well actually there are about 950 votes still to go. [Emphasis added]
Eggers said there is “clearly an organized effort to manipulate and alter outcomes,” noting that in Miami-Dade County, about 108 provisional ballots were eliminated in the midterm election because they were from individuals who had voted twice.
In a recent piece for Breitbart News, Eggers reviewed Snipes’ history of allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote in elections in Broward County, along with her destroying of ballots.”
The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2018
And here is even more on Snipes via Breitbart:
“On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) stated that nothing will be ruled out as a potential consequence for Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes (D) for her handling of the 2018 elections.
Lopez-Cantera said, “I’ll tell you going forward, nothing is going to be ruled out, as far as consequences for these horrible, horrible elections that she’s done here in Broward this year. Leading into the election, there were no indications, for the 2018 general election that there were going to be any problems. But, you know, she has shown herself to be clearly incompetent, and like I said, nothing will be taken off the table going forward.”
As of Tuesday Bondi had sent two separate letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen and Secretary of State Ken Detzner where she expressed concern about FDLE’s comments Friday that it is working with Detzner’s office and will investigate reports of cases of voter fraud but had not received any reports as of Friday.
In a statement FDLE said an investigation had not been opened at this time.
“I am deeply troubled by your announcement that you will not pursue any investigation or inquiry into clearly documented irregularities of election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties,” Bondi wrote Swearingen.
