  • Trump Bailed The GOP Congress Out In 2016 – He Can’t Do It Again In 2018

    Let’s talk about congressional Republicans. A year ago today, Republicans in congress were possibly the single most-detested part of the ruling class in Washington, DC. They had, as a group, made more false and failed promises to voters over the previous seven years than almost any such collective group of politicians in American history. They were headed at that point for a thrashing at the voting booths, with “experts” and polls indicating the GOP would lose its Senate majority and could possibly lose the House as well, if Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in a landslide in the presidential contest....

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wants to get back to Washington and is acting like his old self again after surgery. "He sounded like a different person. He clearly was a hurting guy," Graham told CNN. "I think they relieved the pressure, and he sounded like the old John McCain, dying to get back and talking about driving across the country. I said, 'No.' "

    "It's a significant operation," he said, adding that general anesthesia was used and "there was obviously an abnormality that was concerning enough for him to go through this." Gupta prefers to refer to the clot as an "abnormality" because lab results are still pending and, "it's a pretty significant size of compression on that part of the brain."

    This parade of the addled, the lame and the simply ineffective and dim could go on and on, but here’s the point: Congress is in the process of deciding what the nation’s health insurance system – and therefore, the nation’s health delivery system – will look like for coming generations. This is unfortunately a federal intervention into 1/6th of the U.S. economy that the leaders of both political parties agree needs to happen. The Democrats accomplished the initial takeover in 2010 without a single Republican vote, and the Republicans appear to be limping towards making some sort of “reform” to...

    Is it all just fan fiction? The “Golden Showers” fake story line may well have been started on the internet by mischievous trolls who manufactured the ‘showers to sheets’ nonsense out of their own perverse imagination. Who better to entice gullible politicians and media leftists into falling for a soft porn fantasy? "This story we made up-just let that sink in-what we have become," is a 4chan quote from techies who sent the golden showers story to anti-Trump pundit Rick Wilson "who ran with it." Their post at 4chan is titled "pol/acksfanfiction." ACK often is computer speak for a response...

    The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.
  • Revealed: 'Ordinary 'citizen' John McCain dispatched a trusted aide ... to get dirty dossier [tr]

    Sen. John McCain said he did 'what any citizen would do' in turning over the dirty dossier, which contained unconfirmed secrets about the president-elect, over to the FBI. The Guardian charted the path of how the dossier came to be and how it was that McCain got his hands on the controversial documents. The story of the dossier began with an investigative firm in Washington, D.C., being tapped by one of Trump's primary allies to dig up some opposition research on the Republican hopeful.

    Two senior Republican U.S. senators criticized Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday for saying that Russia may have the "right approach" on Syria and for what they called his lack of focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan. "His statements about Syria really disturb me. No, (Russian President Vladimir) Putin does not have it right when it comes to Syria," Senator Lindsey Graham said. In separate television interviews, Graham and Senator John McCain, prominent Republican foreign policy voices, took aim at Tillerson's remarks last week that Russia may have "got the right approach" and the United States the wrong approach to...

    Four days after Judge Schnider unsealed the custody records, Ryan dropped out of the race for the horror of (allegedly) propositioning his own wife and then taking “no” for an answer. Alan Keyes stepped in as a last-minute Republican candidate. And that’s how Obama became a U.S. senator. He destroyed both his Democratic primary opponent and his Republican general election opponent with salacious allegations about their personal lives taken from “sealed” court records. Obama’s team delved into Sarah Palin’s marriage and spread rumors of John McCain’s alleged affair in 2008 and they smeared Herman Cain in 2011 with hazy sexual...

    He puts the R-I-N-O in RINO.: In news you won’t see in the fake mainstream media, the Daily Caller reports that John McCain’s foundation – which he created out of $9 million in un-spent campaign funds from his failed, half-hearted presidential run in 2008 – is taking gobs of money from the likes of George Soros, former Clinton bag-man Doug Band, and Teneo, a group that shops both Clintons around for lucrative “speaking” engagements. McCain’s status as the Senator From the News Media insulates him from any fears that these grimy connections will be revealed to the audiences of CNN,...

    It’s no secret that Donald Trump has scores of enemies on the left, but now another critic is speaking out from within the Republican Party. John McCain has just revealed that he believes “American leadership” was better under Barack Obama than President Trump. The elderly senator made that remark after being asked by The Guardian about how Trump dealt with the recent London terrorist attack, and foreign policy in general.

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said American leadership was stronger under President Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, according to a Guardian report published Sunday. Asked if the country stood on sturdier ground under Obama's leadership, McCain said "yes," according to the report. “As far as American leadership is concerned, yes," said McCain, who also vocally criticized many of the Obama administration's foreign policy decisions.

    Sen. John McCain startled onlookers on Thursday as he appeared to conflate the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the campaign with the closed probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. McCain said he was troubled that Comey had closed the Clinton investigation while the probe into Russia and possible ties to the Trump campaign remained open. “You reached that conclusion as far as Secretary Clinton was concerned, but you’re not reaching a conclusion as far as this administration is concerned,” McCain said.

    Anonymous sources everywhere, but never a one to believe.: Fox News reports this morning that an anonymous source “familiar with the situation” has told their reporter that Jared Kushner did not in fact raise the idea of opening a back channel of communication with Russian officials last December, contrary to all the fake reports all over the fake news media the last few days, reports that were also base solely on anonymous sources. The subject was, according to Fox’s anonymous source, actually broached by Russian officials, and would have resulted in a single telephone conversation regarding the Obama Administration’s atrocious,...

    Ivanka will never as she states make Liberals like your presidency, an impossible dream sprinkled with fairytale dust and born of absolute stupidity “Screw Them!” Senator John McCain’s vulgar rebuke of the critics of a possible FBI role for Joe Lieberman is all President Donald Trump needs to know about Lieberman being the wrong man for the job. Both McCain and Lieberman don’t know which side they’re on, only swimming across the stream to touch the bank with their exploratory toes when there’s something in it for them. On any day, McCain could give Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi...
