  • Where is Juan?

    My curious brain | Today | Freedomlover
    The fact that Juan McCain is nowhere near a microphone badmouthing Trump is telling. When is the last time he was seen publicly? I have seen some of the Q talk re songbird but I don’t think Juan would spill any beans on his recent treason, unless somebody mixed him a real good IV truth telling cocktail. He has no remorse so I don’t expect a death bed confession. Does anyone know the latest on him? Has he called in some snarky comment?

  • Flake: Obsessed, Consumed and Lost in Hate

    01/18/2018 10:48:51 AM PST · by Kaslin · 38 replies ^ | January 18, 2018 | Robert Graham
    Soft spoken, thoughtful and a principled leader were words that were sometimes used to describe Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. As a congressman, Flake built a reputation as a fiscally conservative republican, free market activist and a representative who was watery on immigration enforcement. Although most Arizonans did not stand with the Senator with regards to his position on immigration, his reputation as a fiscal conservative offered the general voting public definition and a path to what some would constitute his values and principles. Thus, helping him to be elected and reelected. Today, his reputation has eroded into what some would...

    U.S. Senator John McCain wants President Trump to stop attacking the American free press. The Arizona Republican and Vietnam War veteran penned a critical op-ed in the Washington Post on Tuesday, one day before the U.S. leader's teased "Fake News Awards" were scheduled to take place. "The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday," Trump wrote last week. "The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!" McCain says the...

    President Donald Trump’s military doctor Dr. Ronny Jackson conducted a physical exam of the president’s health and although the results were “excellent,” he answered questions about the president’s health at the White House press briefing on Tuesday. Dr. Jackson stood at the podium and answered questions from reporters for over 50 minutes, reassuring them that the president was healthy, he did not wear dentures, he did not have heart disease, and was mentally fit for duty. Here are the 80 questions that were asked.
  • Undocumented Immigrants, U.S. Citizens, and Convicted Criminals in Arizona

    Using newly released detailed data on all prisoners who entered the Arizona state prison from January 1985 through June 2017, we are able to separate non-U.S. citizens by whether they are illegal or legal residents. These data do not rely on self-reporting by criminals. Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes and serve 10.5% longer sentences, more likely to be classified as dangerous, and 45% more likely to be gang members than U.S. citizens. Yet, there are several reasons that these numbers...

    EILAT, Israel — The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain. The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.
  • So why hasn't anyone ever seen Trump's supposed dementia?

    01/06/2018 10:40:14 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 61 replies ^ | Monica Showalter
    Like anyone else, politicians do get old, and when they do, their age frequently becomes obvious in public. One example is House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly slurred her speech and spoken gibberish, both of which point to declining mental capabilities. Politicians also get life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. Whether or not you like John McCain, his brain cancer was the likely culprit for his inability to speak clearly during his questioning of James Comey last month, something most people can look upon with compassion. Then there are politicians who try to hide that there are any health...

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety has...
  • Where's John McCain?

    Its totally out of character for McCain to drop off the radar during such a busy news cycle. Last we heard, he went home to recuperate from his latest cancer treatments, just prior to the tax bill vote. That was what - a couple of weeks ago? Knowing McNuts, he ought to be well rested, and back in fighting trim by now, but we haven't heard a peep out of him, or his staff. So, where is the old democrat anyway? Is he down for the count, or is he just resting up to be a pain in the President's...

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena to David Kramer, a former State Department official who, in late November 2016, traveled to London to receive a briefing and a copy of the Trump dossier from its author, former British spy Christopher Steele. Kramer then returned to the U.S. to give the document to Sen. John McCain. Kramer is a senior fellow at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University. McCain later took a copy of the dossier to the FBI's then-director, James Comey. But the FBI already had the document; Steele himself gave the...

    epublican Sen. John McCain is returning to Arizona after spending several days in a Maryland hospital recovering from side effects from chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer, CBS News has learned. McCain left Washington Sunday and is heading back to his home state to spend the holidays with his family. He will not be on hand for the final vote on the GOP tax passage expected for early this week. It is unclear when McCain might return to Washington. Despite a razor-thin margin needed to pass the measure, McCain's presence will not likely be the determining factor in the vote. Two...

Meghan McCain's new husband, The Federalist's Ben Domenech gave an update on the senator's condition after the longtime Arizona senator was hospitalized earlier this week. 'Well, John, I'm happy to say that he's doing well,' Domenech answered Face the Nation host John Dickerson, who had asked about the Republican lawmaker. 'He's in good spirits. And he's looking forward to heading back home in Arizona for the holidays.' CBS News later reported that McCain is heading directly to Arizona and miss key votes on...

    Back in November, Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, the 83-year-old Republican from Utah, was at the helm when the Senate's massive tax bill came through the Finance Committee. But Hatch also deputized four younger Republicans on the panel to serve as de facto co-chairmen over various parts of the legislation. This week, with a compromise bill marching toward final passage in both chambers, the House will take the unusual step of voting first - because a pair of senators, Thad Cochran, R-Miss., and John McCain, R-Ariz., are recuperating from, respectively, non-melanoma skin surgery and the side effects of cancer treatments. Hatch's...
