    I thought it might be fun to take a little survey and find out who is the most disliked Republican senator currently in Congress. Given that there are 52 Republicans, that gives us about 45 choices. However, in the interest of the upcoming Final Four, I thought I would come up with my top four choices and see where we go. #1. Representing the great state of Arizona Senator John McCain #2. Representing the great state of South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham #3. Representing the great state of Kentucky Senator Mitch the Turtle McConnell #4. Representing the great state of...

    Warmongering U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.; shown), perhaps the most aggressive neocon globalist in the Senate, complained in Europe last week that what he called the “New World Order” was “under enormous strain.” The widely ridiculed “Republican in Name Only,” or RINO as critics refer to him, also defended key globalist institutions such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Union (EU), both of which are under growing pressure from outraged citizens demanding a return of national sovereignty and self-government. Critics were quick to ridicule McCain and some of his Kremlin-centered conspiracy theories, but the globalist establishment...

    Arizona senator John McCain has worked tirelessly to thwart President Trump and the rule of law in our country. In these past two months McCain has denigrated Trump overseas in a fashion that even surpasses the Democrats innuendo and lies about our President. Claiming that even Congress is not to be trusted in investigating the supposed Russian meddling, which has been debunked by the past administration and members of the intelligence community, he has thrown the members of the Congress under the bus. The senator is now standing with those who would impeach President Trump or at the very least...

    "The senator from Kentucky," said John McCain, speaking of his colleague Rand Paul, "is working for Vladimir Putin ... and I do not say that lightly." What did Sen. Paul do to deserve being called a hireling of Vladimir Putin? He declined to support McCain's call for a unanimous Senate vote to bring Montenegro into NATO as the 29th member of a Cold War alliance President Trump has called "obsolete." Bordered by Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania, tiny Montenegro has a population roughly that of D.C., and sits on the western coast of the most volatile peninsula in Europe....

While speaking from the Senate floor in support of a bill advancing Montenegro’s bid to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), McCain noted objection from his Kentucky colleague, saying that if you oppose the measure, “You are achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin... trying to dismember this small country which has already been the subject an attempted coup.” Several moments later, after the 80-year-old senator asked for unanimous consent to...

Sen. John McCain of Arizona told CNN’s “State of the Union” program that he remains troubled by growing evidence that leading aides to the president communicated with Russia throughout the presidential campaign last year. He specifically said longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone, who admitted last week to having conversations with the hacking group that claimed responsibility for the breach of Democratic...

    A year or two ago, I got the idea of writing a post every weekend about only good news in politics across the country. I scrapped it after a month — not enough material. (I am not kidding.) Since then, the political climate has only worsened and coarsened; the 2016 campaign was a low point and, unlike past presidencies, the first six weeks of Donald Trump's administration haven't exactly been a honeymoon. More people are interested in politics than ever before, but that interest is almost entirely directed at hating the other side, not rooting for their team. Enter John...

While many of their Republican colleagues in Congress have worked to make inroads with the new administration, hoping to capitalize on GOP control over two branches of government, the two senators have repeatedly broken with the White House. McCain has accused Trump of running an "administration in disarray." Graham called his budget proposal "dead on arrival" on Capitol Hill.

    On Morning Joe Tuesday, the panel discussed President Donald Trump's upcoming address that evening to a joint-session of Congress. The speech expected to cover his latest budget proposal, including a $54 billion increase in defense spending from which the panel deduced that the Commander-in-Chief "does not sound like a peace-time president." "That is a tremendous amount of money to spend on ramping up the military," ​ New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters said. "$54 billion. That does not to me sound like a peace-time president." Co-host Mika Brezinski looked to hype Trump as erratic and said, "When you hear it in its totality from a president who undermines judiciary, president who flouts First Amendment...

John McCain is widely regarded as a neo-conservative amongst many people in the Republican Party, engendered by his viral admission of “meeting with ISIS and staying in contact with them” and connections to George Soros, a liberal billionaire who is infamous for funding movements that contrast with conservatism. John McCain is not doing himself any favors in the political arena.

The segment was one belated Valentines Day bouquet of praise of McMaster, coming from members of the panel itself as well as in quotes from a bi-partisan array that included several critics of the president, notably including John McCain. Perhaps even more significant than the accolades for McMaster was the suggestion that his selection reflected well on President Trump himself. View...

    It is now clear that what is left of the Republicon Party, after being fatally poisoned by the Bush administration, intents to commit suicide by nominating Senator John McCain (R-Hanoi) for the presidency. Where do I start? THE EARLY YEARS McCain spent his boyhood in exclusive boarding schools where staffers were paid to put up with his tirades. We all did some immature things before we matured. But with McCain, the tirades continue today. Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is scant chance he would have been admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy. Given his...

    Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. The Guardian has not been able to confirm the veracity of the documents’ contents, and the Trump team has consistently denied any hidden contacts with the Russian government...

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham pushed Sunday for greater sanctions against Russia for trying to influence the U.S. election and said President-elect Donald Trump is in danger of being in conflict with congressional Republicans if he doesn't get tougher on Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two senators, in a joint interview on Meet the Press, also said the U.S. intelligence community's evidence of Russian interference during the American presidential campaign is overwhelming, and that Trump should accept those findings. "You can't go on with your life as a democracy when a foreign entity is trying to...

    The rising hysteria about Russia is best understood as fulfilling two needs for Official Washington: the Military Industrial Complex’s transitioning from the “war on terror” to a more lucrative “new cold war” – and blunting the threat that a President Trump poses to the neoconservative/liberal-interventionist foreign-policy establishment......... We need to understand that those who want this war will be absolutely relentless. The sales pitch will not end until they get exactly what they want.....

    Today a Politico article reveals the John McCain/Lindsey Graham push to create an international crisis with Russia has found push-back from an unlikely source, Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. (Politico) John McCain and Lindsey Graham are backing off of their push for a select committee on cybersecurity after Russian interference in the election, bowing to the political reality that the Senate Republican Conference largely does not back their idea. […] “We’re just going to move with the individual committees and see how that works. If it doesn’t work, we’ll regroup,” [Lindsey] Graham said in an interview. The House Intelligence Committee Chairman...
  • Top GOP senators: Aleppo 'will be a testament to our moral failure and everlasting shame'

    Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham issued a blistering statement Tuesday condemning the US' failure to act to prevent the "slaughter" of hundreds of thousands of people in Syria. "The words 'never again' ring hollow today with reports that Aleppo is falling to Assad regime forces," the senators wrote, amid reports that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were on the brink of fully recapturing the besieged city of Aleppo from opposition forces. "For four long years, Aleppo has been at the center of the Assad regime's war on the Syrian people," the statement continued. "Together with its...

    Been furious and steaming over Lundsey Graham and his treatment of the election and this fake Russian story. So I've been searching and studying and applying "follow the money" and I have come to some conclusions I have not read anywhere else.
