    FULL TITLE: 'We do not surrender. I want you to fight with me': Meghan McCain makes an impassioned plea to unite 'divided' America in the wake of the Kavanaugh hearings and praises Biden for helping her cope with her father's death in emotional return to The View Meghan McCain returned to The View on Monday, marking her first appearance on the ABC daytime show since the death of her father back in August. It was an emotional return for McCain, who found herself in tears just seconds into the broadcast as she thanked the women at the table and people...

    There are 2 huge reasons why Judge Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh. The first, the fact that Donald Trump is POTUS, is obvious. The second, which is less remarked upon, is that John McCain is no longer a member of the U.S. Senate. We've all seen the impact McCain's departure has made on Lindsey Graham, but I think it has transformed the rest of the rest of the Republican Caucus as well. They no longer have the burden of a media darling, anti-Constitution, anti-conservative wrecker who monopolizes attention that can be devoted to achieving conservative goals. In Pat Buchanan's latest...

    The weekend did nothing to quell the ongoing war between Meghan McCain and Laura Ingraham. McCain, daughter of presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, came out last week and responded to Ingraham’s remarks that she was "plus-sized," remarks that were a direct result of McCain’s public criticism of the Republican Party. Ingraham’s comments also included some disrespectful dismissal: "Do you think that anyone would be talking to you if you weren’t kind of cute and you weren’t the daughter of John McCain?" She went on to mock McCain as a heavyset Valley girl. McCain wasted no time biting back, and took...

    HBO’s Bill Maher lashed out at Sen. Lindsey Graham on Friday for his defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the South Carolina Republican was missing “the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” meaning the late Sen. John McCain. Maher, host of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” took shots at Graham multiple times -- for example, saying in his opening monologue that the senator was “familiar” with the “back door.” “The fact that Trump can either find people like him or make him … Lindsey Graham needs the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” Maher said later, in reference...

    Four distinguished experts tell the tragic and unconscionable inside story. Editors’ note: Last Friday, Sept. 21, 2018, our nation, led by our president, solemnly marked National POW/MIA Recognition Day, during which we honored all American prisoners of war and expressed our deep gratitude and respect for what they endured and -- as empirical evidence suggests -- in some cases may very well be continuing to endure. Indeed, we pay tribute to those who never returned -- and, of course, also to their suffering families. In honor of this sacred day, Frontpage has deemed it important to run Jamie Glazov's Symposium...

    Late GOP senator introduced Tom Malinowski at 2013 confirmation hearing In his quest to defeat a five-term Republican congressman, New Jersey Democrat Tom Malinowski is turning to the late Sen. John McCain. Malinowski’s latest ad, obtained first by Roll Call, opens with the Arizona Republican senator introducing him to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 2013, praising his work to end torture when he worked at Human Rights Watch. “I am forever grateful,” McCain says in the footage. The Senate confirmed Malinowski the following year to be assistant secretary of State for democracy, human rights and labor. He’s now challenging...

    “YOU DIDN’T HAVE a conservative senator from the West leading the charge for gun control before now,” Michael Barnes, the head now, of Handgun Control, bragged to the Los Angeles Times in April. The gun control debate in Washington has hit center stage because Sen. John McCain, R Ariz., has now become one of the premier flag carriers for the enemies of the Second Amendment. In early April, the Senate passed McCain’s campaign finance reform bill to severely restrict Americans’ freedom of speech. Now, McCain has joined with Al Gore running mate Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D Conn. a gun ban...

    Time ^ | 2010 | Jay Newton Small
    Sarah Palin had a pretty good Super Tuesday. Three of the four candidates she endorsed won, bringing her record in tightly contested races to 8-3 overall this midterm election year. "Oftentimes I'm looking at the candidate who shares the circumstances in which I've been: underfunded, up against the machine, no big endorsements, running a grassroots campaign with the help of volunteer friends and family," Palin told TIME. Palin has done particularly well picking winners in Senate and gubernatorial races, having endorsed Senate candidate Rand Paul in Kentucky, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Susana Martinez for Governor in New Mexico and on...

    The Week ^ | September 5, 2018 | Ryan Girdusky
    he late Sen. John McCain was laid to rest over Labor Day weekend, with family and friends, political colleagues and opponents, and a coterie of other respectable and respectful people all gathering to grieve over the war hero and lawmaker they loved and admired. President Trump was notably absent. Before his death, McCain reportedly made it clear that America's 45th president was not welcome at his funeral. This isn't particularly surprising, as the two had long and famously feuded, their divergence perhaps best highlighted by Trump's widely derided criticism of McCain for being "captured" and held as a prisoner of...

    The Nation ^ | October 1 2008 | Mark Ames and Ari Berman
    Over the course of the presidential campaign, John McCain has repeatedly emphasized his willingness to stand up to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as proof that only he possesses the fortitude and judgment to become the next leader of the free world. In his acceptance speech at the Republican convention, McCain lashed out at Putin and the Russian oligarchs, who, “rich with oil wealth and corrupt with power…[are] reassembling the old Russian Empire.”...Yet despite McCain’s tough talk, behind the scenes his top advisers have cultivated deep ties with Russia’s oligarchy—indeed, they have promoted the Kremlin’s geopolitical and economic interests, as...

    Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity. There was the nation's most infamous anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan, smiling like the Cheshire cat onstage with hate crime hoax godfather Al Sharpton and shakedown con artist Jesse Jackson, who exploited his honored platform to threaten funeral attendees: "If you leave here today and...

    He's back!  Fresh off a highly successful political rally at his funeral, John McCain will now continue his Uniparty work thanks to the miracle of suspended animation.  We spoke to Deep State spokeswoman, the lovely Lisa Stzrok, about what's being called: McCain 2.0: Why did the Deep State decide to put the Senator in suspended animation? Frankly, McCain 2.0 is vital to us because Trump is so hard to combat.  The Fake News has attacked Trump with false stories 24/7 for three years, but he keeps getting stronger.  Ex-Presidents are also afraid to go after Trump alone. That's why...

    The late Sen. John McCain is being lauded far and wide for his long career of public service. Rep. John Lewis, the famous civil rights activist, hailed McCain as a “warrior for peace.” In reality, McCain embodied a mix of moralism and militarism that worked out badly for America and the world.

    On August 27, fierce battles erupted in Tripoli's districts after the Seventh Brigade, an armed group based in Tarhouna, 65km southeast of the capital, launched a surprise offensive against rival militias. A truce was reached the next day but clashes resumed shortly after, forcing authorities to close Tripoli's only functioning airport. … On Monday, the social media website Facebook was blocked in Tripoli and the surrounding cities. Libyan utility LPTIC, which owns the two state-run telecoms firms, said in a statement that a lack of security had led to outages. Maintenance engineers were unable to reach some stations which had...

    Well in the last couple of weeks Mollie Tibbets, the girl who said she hated white people, and good old John McCain have died. One at a time, Mollie's father Rob is nothing less than a gutless puke. Rather than talking about his daughter and the crime against her, he spends his time like a special little snowflake running around singing the praises of diversity and all that Kumbaya stuff. To her father Rob, focus on what happened to your daughter. Don't turn this in to an Obama "teaching moment." You are obviously a liberal loon and all that that...

    Funeral services are not for the benefit of the defunct, who is beyond our praise or condemnation, but for the living, who know before long that they will follow the honored dead into a cold grave. Senator John McCain’s funeral was the most ostentatious that Washington has accorded except for a president, and much grander than the 2006 funeral of Gerald Ford, for example. The American Establishment took the opportunity to mourn a world that it imagined but never inhabited.
