Media Dead Silent On Special Actions Trump Took For McCain

Published

on

I have not watched the memorials for Senator John McCain (R-AZ). I’d sooner have a root canal. But it’s been wall-to-wall coverage on Fox News for the departed senator… you almost can’t avoid it.

I have watched videos of some of those who have spoken in memoriam for McCain. One of them was his daughter Meghan McCain, who I have never warmed to. Now I remember why.

As you may have heard, President Trump was basically disinvited from McCain’s funeral. I believe Mike Pence went in his stead. Regardless, Trump issued his condolences to the McCain family and flew the flag at half-staff in honor of McCain’s passing.

President Trump granted the request of the McCain family to use Air Force 2 to transport McCain’s body to DC. And how was he repaid for his kindness and respect for McCain? With sick retaliation by Meghan McCain during the memorial.

She was not alone of course. Others got their jabs in as well. I find it exceedingly ironic that Senator John McCain’s body was flown to Washington DC on an aircraft that had to be approved by President Trump.

Barack Obama got in his two cents during his eulogy for McCain: “President Obama clearly was addressing Donald Trump without mentioning his name, talking about politics today being small, mean, petty and grounded in insult. He talked about “phony controversy” and “manufacturing outrage.” And, as Ivanka Trump looked on, he talked about certain people appearing “brave and tough” when they are actually steeped in fear.”

President Trump did not take credit for the gesture either. But the bitterness and hatred for Trump were on full display during Meghan’s comments on her father’s life.

Silly me… I thought it would have been appropriate to talk solely about John McCain’s life, his accomplishments and the love his family and friends had for him. It is not appropriate, however, to use such an occasion to strike out at McCain’s political enemies.

Air Force 2 is typically reserved for the vice president or the first lady’s travel. Certainly, the use of the transport was not something ‘owed’ to McCain and the family was not just entitled to the use of it. The ingratitude here just reeks.

TMZ reported: “President Trump announced earlier this week he had approved military transport for McCain, saying, “At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain’s remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy.’”

More on Air Force 2 from AZ Central:

“The plane, most commonly recognized when it is serving as Air Force Two, is a Boeing C-32A. It is the military version of the well-known Boeing 757.

“The 89th Airlift Wing, based out of Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, is responsible for the aircraft as well as Air Force One. McCain’s body will be flown to the base, according to a representative of the airlift wing.

“The United States has been using a fleet of eight C-32s since 1998. (This year, the administration of President Donald Trump included $6 million in the federal budget to study replacements for the aircraft.)

“This specific plane has carried the body of a significant figure at least once before, according to the Air Force. In 2001, this plane transported the body of United States Marine and Central Intelligence Agency Operations Officer Johnny Michael Spann. He was the first American killed in combat during the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan.”

With President Trump doing the right thing out of respect for the McCain family, you’d think they would leave the vitriol at home. Nope. Meghan McCain delivered a bitter, angry and sad eulogy that bashed President Trump and it was not pretty.

From 100PercentFedUp.com:

“BITTERNESS IS A HORRIBLE THING TO PASS ON…

“It’s sad to see the eulogy of a father turn into a bitter slam of our president. The one thing that comes to mind when watching the eulogy of Senator John McCain by his daughter is the old saying, “Like father, like daughter”.

“Meghan McCain used what could have been a beautiful moment to celebrate her father to slam President Trump in a bitter-sounding rebuke of his presidency. It’s sad to say but it’s probably what her father would have wanted anyway.

“McCain said she asked her father what she should say at his eulogy and he responded with, “Show them how tough you are.” That advice is not what this occasion was the time and place for… but this is John McCain’s final stand beyond the grave and he knew his brash daughter would pull through for him…Like father, like daughter…

“Meghan McCain, speaking at her father’s funeral: “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

“Time and place matter… especially with funerals. The National Cathedral was packed with Trump cabinet members and with the president’s daughter. Was it the time or the place to have a virtual temper tantrum at the church where your father’s funeral is being held?

“Classless, Bitter and Sad… Like father, like daughter.”

I don’t have much to add to that. It was well said and right on the mark here.

Trump About To Drop Presidential Hammer On Obama For Attempting To Overtake Investigation

Published

on

...

* By

More and more is coming out about Spygate. The Obama administration tried to take over the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, according to The Hill’s John Solomon. He covered it last night on Hannity’s show and then wrote on it extensively at The Hill. Solomon claims that the FBI began spying on members of the Trump campaign to gather the intelligence that ultimately justified the collusion investigation, weeks or even months before the FBI had a formal predicate. If true, the whole thing was cooked up and premeditated. It was indeed a pre-planned coup and President Trump is about to drop the presidential hammer on all of them.

“That’s very important. The rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The predication is July 31, 2016,” Solomon told Hannity. The investigative reporter said he had sources and documents backing up his claim that he would be making public in his report in The Hill on Friday and he did just that.

Solomon started off his well-researched piece with this:

“The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn’t erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election.”

“It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 — some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters — occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

“The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?”

A very good question and of course the answer is a resounding “no.”

Solomon stressed that informants were making contacts with the Trump officials and providing information to the FBI “much, much earlier than July 31.” Then he drops the bombshell that according to the FBI, the White House and Obama wanted to take over the whole investigation. Here is where that led on Sean Hannity’s show last night:

John Solomon: I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things. The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part. The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear.

Sean Hannity: Slow down. When you say the White House you mean the Obama White House- they were attempting to take over the investigation.

John Solomon: That’s what these messages say.

Sean Hannity: These are FBI messages and this is the Obama White House. How high up are we talking about here?

John Solomon: We don’t know the messages are just what they are.

Solomon covers in the second part of his report the internal FBI communications between former counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, his mistress Lisa Page and others discussing how the Obama White House was trying to take over the investigation. “The words ‘the White House is running this’ are clear in the text message,” Solomon told Hannity, adding that “the FBI agents who opened this case feared that Barack Obama was weak on national security and wouldn’t do what they needed for Russia.” Wowzers. He went on to say, “The political elements of the administration were trying to intrude on the FBI investigation.”

Solomon’s report does not sync with what former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes wrote about the investigation in his new book “The World as It Is,” which is set to be published next week by Random House. Well, duh. Rhodes is lying. That’s what he is good at and has done from the beginning. In his book, Rhodes claims that Obama didn’t know there was an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible contacts with Russia until he left office. That’s just laughable. Rhodes said that “neither he nor Mr. Obama knew at that time that there was an F.B.I. investigation,” according to the New York Times, which obtained an advance copy of the book. Way to cover your collective backsides. No one believes that.

The failed novelist claims in the book that he learned about the FBI investigation from news reports after he left office. Gee, that is the same excuse Obama used multiple times during his presidency. Tell a lie often enough, these guys really think Americans are gullible and stupid. Rhodes is simply insulting our intelligence here. I wouldn’t buy his book to use as a doorstop.

No collusion between President Trump and Russia has ever been proven because it does not exist. The only ones gaining from this are Mueller and his team who are getting paid a ton to try and tie the President’s hands to keep him from doing his job. Taxpayers have wasted almost $17 million on the Russia probe since Mueller took over in 2017, according to a spending report just released by the DOJ. About $10 million was spent in the five months between October 2017 and March 2018 alone. That includes $4.5 million in hefty salaries for Mueller’s team of Trump-hating Democratic attorneys and another $5.5 million spent on random expenses.

Solomon’s report gives justification to President Trump to stop this nonsense.

Do you think Trump should swing the hammer down hard?

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
