    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says in a new documentary of his life that he is thankful for the life he's lived. "The American people don't hold Washington and the people who work there in very high esteem. We need to make sure that we give the American people what they deserve, and right now they're not getting it," McCain said in an interview for "For Whom the Bell Tolls," named for the Ernest Hemingway novel which McCain still lists as his favorite. "I know this is a very vicious disease. I greet every day with gratitude, and I will continue...

    GOP seeks farm bill support amid immigration debate House Freedom Caucus members are trying to flex some muscle on immigration in exchange for support on the farm bill; A sprawling and subsidy-packed farm bill that also would have tightened food stamp rules failed in the House on Friday, in a dramatic defeat for GOP leaders who faced an uprising from conservatives over inaction on immigration. The farm bill, which was voted down 213-198, had been hanging in the balance as the conservative House Freedom Caucus threatened to withhold support without an agreement on an immigration bill vote. The GOP leadership,...

    More than half a million illegal immigrants of several dozen nationalities have been apprehended on John Ladd’s sprawling cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona. Ladd has also found 14 dead bodies on his 16,500-acre farm, which has been in his family for well over a century and sits between the Mexican border and historic State Route 92. The property shares a 10 ˝-mile border with Mexico, making it a popular route for human and drug smugglers evading a meager force of Border Patrol agents in the mountainous region. “As big as that number sounds, many more got away,” said National Border...

    GOP Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.) on Thursday introduced legislation that would instruct the House to call on the White House to formally apologize for a staffer’s “insensitive comments” that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was “dying anyway.” Jones, a vocal critic of President Trump, rolled out the resolution after becoming outraged by comments made about McCain by White House aide Kelly Sadler and her refusal to publicly apologize, The Hill has learned. Last year, McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, and the longtime senator is now receiving treatment at his home near Sedona, Ariz. House Resolution 901 was...

    The Hill ^ | May 16, 2018 | Jordain Carney
    GOP Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) announced Wednesday he will oppose the nomination of Gina Haspel, President Trump's pick to lead the CIA, citing her ties to the controversial "enhanced interrogation" program used during the George W. Bush administration. "Congress needs to be able to provide fully informed oversight. My questions about Ms. Haspel's role in the destruction of videotapes relevant to discussions occurring in Congress regarding the program have not been adequately answered," Flake said in a statement. Flake, a vocal critic of Trump who is set to retire after this year, is the third Republican senator to come out...

    In March 2017, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) successfully delayed for 11 days Senate ratification of Montenegro's entry into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). America's leading advocate for NATO expansion, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) responded by accusing Paul of "achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin...of trying to dismember this small country." "I repeat again," McCain said then, remarkably. "The senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin." Perhaps even more remarkably, though not very surprisingly, McCain is unapologetic about that accusation in his valedictory new memoir, The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations. "Senator...

    .How do you compete in a Republican primary for a border state Senate seat? Martha McSally is offering one clue. The Arizona congresswoman took to the House floor last week to ask unanimous consent to remove her name from a bill that would provide legal status and an eventual path to citizenship to some children of undocumented immigrants. Until then, McSally was one of 34 Republicans to co-sponsor the Recognizing America's Children Act, seen as a new and conservative version of the DREAM Act. The only Democrat to sponsor the bill is fellow Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, whom McSally hopes...

Paul Ryan is on his way out so he’s on a kamikaze mission to push through mass amnesty. Laura Ingraham warned the President Monday. Ingraham tweeted: Warning to @realDonaldTrump: An effort is underway by liberal Repubs (+Dems) on a mass amnesty in the House thru a “discharge petition,” supported by @SpeakerRyan.

    Well, someone finally said it: Liberals, you’re not as smart as you think—and you’re helping Donald J. Trump win a second term. Gerard Alexander, a political science professor at the University of Virginia, wrote this in The New York Times and he might have to change his name after this. He aptly noted how a) cultural centers are dominated by progressives; b) how they’re causing a backlash against liberalism; and c) how their inability to see that they are causing it will lead to a Trump victory in the next presidential election. The professor noted how the Left is overly...

    Old friends and colleagues are visiting John McCain's Arizona home these days to say goodbye. But before he takes leave, the senator has a few other things left to say to America. The press? Full of "routine liberal bias." If you're wondering how the infamous "pee tape dossier" got out, it was McCain's doing. He heard about it from a British diplomat, sent someone to England to get a copy, and passed it to then-FBI Director James Comey. "And I would do it again," McCain says. "Anyone who doesn't like it can go to hell." While the old warrior settles...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Republican has urged the White House to speak out against an aide who mocked Senator John McCain’s brain cancer during an internal meeting, but stopped short of calling on U.S. President Donald Trump to apologize. South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a close friend of McCain, told CBS’s “Face the Nation” program in an interview to be aired on Sunday that he was not satisfied with the White House’s response to the controversy surrounding Kelly Sadler, a communications aid. “It’s (a) pretty disgusting thing to say, if it was a joke, it was a terrible...

    This is one of those columns that runs the risk of ticking off everyone. Whenever you combine politics and death, especially when using a political lightning rod to do it, people on both sides tend to get upset. But I don’t care, it has to be said – John McCain needs to retire from the Senate. With that being said, this column is not really about Senator McCain, per se, it’s about the fact that far too many career politicians, as they approach their sunset years, stay in office longer than they are able to do the job. McCain just...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain is feeling better as he recovers from cancer treatment and surgery in Arizona, according to family members and friends. Arizona's junior U.S. senator, Jeff Flake, told Fox News on Friday that he spoke with McCain by phone that morning, and said his 81-year-old colleague was “doing better” than he had been recently. In April, McCain underwent surgery for an intestinal infection. Flake did not go into detail, but he smiled and spoke in a tone of voice that suggested he was pleased or relieved to offer the positive update.

    The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day with Presidents’ Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”...
  • John McCain — A Once Great Man Made Very Small in Washington

    Washington, D.C. does not create great men and women. It can sometimes reveal greatness. But for those who stay too long, Washington makes great people small and petty; and small, petty people unsightly shells. In Lord of the Rings terminology, it is the one ring to rule them all. And John McCain has worn the ring too long. It has distorted the courageous and selfless airman and POW he once was into a mere shadow of that man, driven to maintain the power, influence and affirmation of the entrenched power structure in D.C. — and in doing so undermining the...
