  • Republican strategist eviscerates US president in new book, Everything Trump Touches Dies

    Rick Wilson is a long-time Republican strategist and the architect of all manner of knives-out campaign ads, including one particularly vicious spot from the 2008 presidential campaign that hammered Barack Obama’s connection to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright with the tag: “Barack Obama: Too Radical, Too Risky.” He helped start the Never Trump movement. It cost him friends and all manner of potential political work. It subjected him to the threats and fury of Trump’s troll army. He was labelled a Rino (Republican in name only) and a party traitor. And he didn’t care. Right is right, and Trump was clearly,...
  • Trump’s Snub of McCain

    President Trump’s refusal to mention John McCain’s name as he was pontificating about the new military spending bill for 28 minutes reveals the inner Trump in a stark way. His inability to mention the senator’s name is a sign of his immaturity, insecurity, fear of competition, vindictiveness and delusional sense of self-importance. He is the quintessential petulant child. Debasing a war hero comes easy to him. Taking credit for a bill bearing Mr. McCain’s name also comes easy to him. He has no moral compass. He has no compass at all.
  • The defense authorization bill is named after John McCain — but Trump didn't mention him

    President Trump just signed the National Defense Authorization Act, named after Arizona Sen. John McCain, but the President never once mentioned McCain's name or thanked him. “We would not be here for today’s signing ceremony without the dedicated efforts without the dedicated members of Congress who worked so hard to pass the National Defense Authorization Act,” said Trump while thanking service members and military leadership. However, he did mention Rep. Elise Stefanik, who spoke briefly and represents the district containing Fort Drum, as well as Don Baker, Dan Donovan, Joe Wilson, and Martha McSally.

    A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

    Sen. John McCain brokered a clandestine and illegal deal, feeding Classified FBI intelligence to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to discredit Donald Trump prior to the 2016 election, according to federal law enforcement insiders. McCain, a sitting GOP Senator, was provided names of “problematic Russians” the FBI had recently investigated or were in the process of investigating. Top FBI executives worked with McCain to provide the names of the Russians, FBI insiders confirmed. Then McCain, handed the list off to Fusion GPS who was working with Christopher Steele. One of the names on the list was embattled Russian lawyer Natalia...

    For the first time in 25 years, the International Republican Institute will have a new leader. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is battling brain cancer, has decided to step down from his role as chairman of the board of the organization, which for decades he has helped to fight for democracy, freedom, civil society, the rule of law and human rights around the world. McCain’s handoff to IRI’s next chairman, Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), is not a signal that McCain’s health is declining. In fact, several McCain associates say his condition hasn’t changed in recent months and he remains actively...

    Years of questions about how so many DC scandals never ended up with any accountability are now slowly beginning to make sense. Henry Kerner is a missing piece of a very frustrating puzzle… Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, we now find a name at the very heart of some of the most controversial investigative collapses in modern political history. The same John McCain staffer who told the IRS to weaponize their database to target Tea Party groups, was intimately involved in Fast-and-Furious, Benghazi, IRS and now -under the Trump administration- “Spygate”.

    In a new wide-ranging magazine interview, Meghan McCain offered details of her relationship with her father, U.S. Sen. John McCain, and how she has coped in the year since his father's brain cancer diagnosis. McCain, a political commentator and co-host of ABC's "The View,' has used her perch to take on President Donald Trump for his repeated attacks on her father, as well his policies and rhetoric. She told Glamour magazine the devastating diagnosis has caused her to approach life as her father did: unafraid. "My father is the sun in my universe,' McCain, 33, told the magazine. "He's the...

    Good for Romney, not so good for McCain: McCain's loss, Romney's gain. That's how Republican insiders were interpreting the surprise decision of former Minnesota Rep. Vin Weber, one of the earliest supporters of Arizona Sen. John McCain's 2000 presidential bid, to sign up this time with Mitt Romney's 2008 presidential campaign team — as policy chairman. Weber, who heads the prominent lobbying firm Clark & Weinstock, has remained influential as a national party strategist since leaving Congress more than a decade ago. Weber's opting out of Team McCain is considered particularly significant given his longtime association with the Republican Party's...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain said Friday that she might not have married conservative pundit and Federalist publisher Ben Domenech nearly so quickly were it not for President Trump . On Friday's episode of the daily ABC program, McCain said that she had a "theory" that the rise of Trump led to her falling for Domenech, pointing to the night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland when Trump accepted the GOP nomination for president as a key moment in their relationship. “I have this theory because I got together with my husband very quickly, which I never do,” she...

    1 – Rob Goldstone, the English publicist and music manager, admitted that when he wrote Donald Trump Jr. to set up the meeting with a Russian attorney at Trump Tower he used deliberately hyperbolic language to ensure that the meeting took place. Goldstone further said that he believes the meeting was a “bait and switch” by a Russian lobbyist seeking a meeting on another matter by misleadingly claiming to be bringing the Trump campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton. 2 – All participants in the meeting who have spoken publicly say no Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton was discussed. 3 –...

    Is the “progressive” left finally ready to acknowledge the benefits of pro-growth tax reform? The intriguing possibility comes to us courtesy of the ABC television program, “The View.” That’s where Meghan McCain sparked a heated discussion this week by wisely warning about the miseries resulting from socialism. When program host Whoopi Goldberg raised the subject of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist selected by voters in the Democratic primary for a U.S. house seat in New York City, Ms. McCain helpfully noted that socialism has failed worldwide and is currently resulting in malnutrition and even starvation in Venezuela. This is not necessarily...

    The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed a defense authorization bill that restricts any drawdown of American troops in South Korea. The John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act, which approves $716 billion for defense in fiscal year 2019, passed the House by a vote of 359-54. Upon Senate approval, it will be sent to US President Donald Trump to sign into law. The bill notes that about 28,500 American troops are currently stationed in South Korea as a demonstration of the US commitment to the bilateral alliance. Their "significant removal" is "a non-negotiable item as it relates to...

    Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona lashed out at President Donald Trump on Wednesday for Trump's recent comments about NATO's collective defense obligations. In an interview with Fox News on Tuesday evening, in response to a question by host Tucker Carlson, Trump echoed Carlson's concerns about whether the U.S. should defend a small country like Montenegro if it were to come under attack. McCain, who is known to be hawkish on Russia, accused Trump of toeing the Kremlin line. “The people of #Montenegro boldly withstood pressure from #Putin’s Russia to embrace democracy. The Senate voted 97-2 supporting its accession to...
