    Washington (CNN) - Republican Sen. John McCain said Sunday that President Donald Trump's comments that the US military would leave Syria "very soon" had emboldened Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, resulting in the reported chemical weapons attack Saturday that killed dozens of the country's civilians. "President Trump last week signaled to the world that the United States would prematurely withdraw from Syria," the Arizona senator said in a statement. "Bashar Assad and his Russian and Iranian backers have heard him, and emboldened by American inaction, Assad has reportedly launched another chemical attack against innocent men, women and children, this time in...

    Failed presidential candidate Senator John McCain advised President Donald Trump to rejoin the Trans-Pacific partnership trade deal. ďItís easy to punish China. Itís a lot harder to hold it truly accountable and change its behavior,Ē the senator wrote on Twitter. ďThat requires a real strategy and positive trade agenda, which is why the US should rejoin the #TPP11.Ē TPP-11 is the new version of the free trade partnership in Asia after Trump withdrew from the deal because it wasnít fair to the United States. McCain criticized Trump for withdrawing from the TPP trade deal, during a May speech in Australia...
  • eport: John McCainís FBI Handoff Turned Trump Hoax Dossier Into ĎUrgent Matterí

    John McCainís involvement in handing the largely discredited, Democrat-funded dossier directly to then-FBI Director James Comey helped to turn the anti-Trump document into a more urgent matter, according to a recently released book. It has not been clear why McCain delivered the dossier to Comey in December 2016. By then, the FBI had not only already reportedly launched an investigation into Trumpís campaign partially utilizing the dossier, but Comey himself had two months earlier signed an application using the dossier to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, who briefly served as a volunteer foreign policy adviser to Trumpís campaign.

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is set to offer a "no-holds-barred" assessment of the Trump administration in a new memoir. The book's publisher, Simon and Schuster, said Monday that the title, "The Restless Wave," will begin with McCain's 2008 White House run against now-former President Barack Obama, and will reflect on his time in the Senate during Obama's tenure in office, according to AFP. But he will also "share his experiences during the divisive 2016 election and his no-holds-barred opinions on the current developments coming out of Washington," the publisher said.

    If you are a conservative, it is easy to believe that the tech giants have it in for conservatives. But what if that isn't true? What if the "Googlers" and the Facebookers and the Twittites are just idiots and don't know any better? I was down in the South Bay Area visiting a young Applite, and it just seemed to me that all these tech guys and the tech H.R. and diversity enforcers are just ordinary mortals, reflexively doing what they think they are supposed to. After all, unless you were an instinctive contrarian, you would have picked up the...

    Washington, D.C. Ė U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on President Trumpís decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: ďPresident Trumpís decision to eliminate DACA is the wrong approach to immigration policy at a time when both sides of the aisle need to come together to reform our broken immigration system and secure the border.ďI strongly believe that children who were illegally brought into this country through no fault of their own should not be forced to return to a country they do not know.

    Education and income make a difference. Nearly nine in ten Americans with a college education or income above $50,000 are able to identify Great Britain as the country from which the United States won its liberty. Of note, white Americans, 84%, are also more likely than Latino residents, 70%, or African Americans, 53%, to correctly identify Great Britain. Although race is a factor, its importance is exaggerated by differences in education and income among ethnic groups. Interestingly, age makes little difference. ďCurious about other countries that get mentioned?Ē asks Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for...

    Laughter may be the best medicine, but funnyman Al Franken needed something a bit more tragic to steer him off drugs. The "Saturday Night Live" veteran (and current U.S. senator from Minnesota) reveals in his new memoir that it wasn't until co-star John Belushi died that he realized the dangers of drugs and finally kicked his habit. Franken, 66, spent 15 years on the NBC sketch show, first as a writer, and then as a performer, and writes in his book "Al Franken, Giant of the Senate by Al Franken" that he at first only managed to get through the...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) appeared to confuse the National Rifle Association with the National Security Agency during remarks Tuesday at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation's 2017 Fiscal Summit. While being interviewed by CNN's Dana Bash, Pelosi discussed the ongoing investigation into whether there was collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and the Russians, and whether he may have obstructed justice, according to NTK Network. "To have a president say, if he did, to the director of the FBI, or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA person thatóum, uh, that they should not go forward,...

    The fake news establishment media at CNN is at it again. Now they are attacking Fox News host Sean Hannity, smearing his reputation with a phony story about him allegedly pointing a gun at liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams. Dylan Byers, one of the media writers at CNN who works for media industry defender Brian Stelter, printed a story on Thursday alleging: ďLast year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams.Ē Byers cited ďthree sources with knowledge of the incidentĒ to...

    Conservative Republicans support for Sen. Ted Cruz indicates that the conservative movement is brain dead. If Cruz is the best candidate they can find, then conservatives obviously have nothing to offer. Cruz may be the only Republican presidential aspirant who is dumber than Hillary Clinton.

    Ben Carson finished dead last in South Carolina last night, as the polls predicted that he would. He did not finish last due to lack of effort, or because he was focusing on some other state where he had a better chance. By Carson's own admission, South Carolina was a state where he should have done well, and where the large evangelical population should have given him a decent chance to post a good showing. Instead, he finished behind John Kasich, a guy who spent significant portions of the last week campaigning in far flung places like Michigan. He finished...
