    Praising Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), now battling brain cancer, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday said McCain is thinking beyond the health care bill. “You know, I love the man,” Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday, after the Senate vote on a motion to proceed to a health care bill that is open to amendments. “He's a great man," Schumer said of McCain. "We've been close friends. He even said to me when I called him this weekend, ‘Let's get immigration reform done,’ so he's thinking of the future. As you know, he and I worked on...

    Boy, what a difference a few tweets makes, huh? After President Trump had gone after his thus far lackluster performance in office, Attorney General Jeff Sessions suddenly woke up, displaying a sudden new focus on things that actually matter. Just a few hours after the President’s latest tweet storm, federal agents arrested the chief IT specialist for ex-DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Imran Awan, as he was attempting to flee the country through Dulles International Airport. The FBI also announced it has seized a set of “smashed hard drives” that Awan had left behind at his home. Mr. Anwan had...

    Delphi Analytica ^ | July 25, 2017
    On July 19, 2017 it was announced that Sen. John McCain (R), 80, was diagnosed with brain cancer. His specific diagnosis was a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor with a median survival time of 15-16 months. While the tumor was removed during an operation, this type of cancer commonly returns. Delphi Analytica asked what the people of Arizona thought Senator McCain should do in light of his devastating diagnosis. Our poll was conducted via internet of 667 Arizona residents from July 21–23. 12% thought Senator McCain should not retire at this time. 19% thought that it was too...

    EXCERPT He stressed the importance of the Senate, issuing what appeared to be a warning to President Donald Trump. "We are not the president's subordinates. We are his equal," McCain said of the legislative branch. McCain also spoke at length about the at-times acrimonious relations within the Senate and urged his colleagues to work across the aisle. "Our deliberations can still be important and useful, but I think we can all agree that they haven't been overburdened by greatness lately," he said. "Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet. To hell with them!"...

    Donald Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort are testifying this week to various congressional committees investigating allegations of Russian influence in last year’s presidential election. These are very high-risk, high-profile events in the Left’s efforts to nullify the election results. One person who did not lose sleep last night is Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, the left-wing opposition research company that produced the now infamous Trump/Russia dossier. Simpson was subpoenaed by the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify Wednesday. But his attorney informed committee leaders that Simpson would be “asserting his Fifth Amendment...

    Senator John McCain will return to the Senate on Tuesday, just six days after announcing he had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, his office announced Monday night. The statement: "Senator McCain looks forward to returning to the United States Senate tomorrow to continue working on important legislation, including health care reform, the National Defense Authorization Act, and new sanctions or Russia, Iran and North Korea."

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will return to the Senate on Tuesday after being diagnosed with brain cancer, giving the GOP push to repeal and replace ObamaCare a boost of momentum. “Senator McCain looks forward to returning to the United States Senate tomorrow to continue working on important legislation, including health care reform, the National Defense Authorization Act, and new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea," McCain's office said on Monday evening. McCain was absent last week after having a blood clot removed from above his left eye, and it was unclear earlier Monday if he would return for...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 24, 2017 | Susan Ferrechio
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has locked in this week's attempt to repeal Obamacare, by scheduling a vote on Tuesday to start debate on the legislation. "The only way we'll have an opportunity to consider ideas is if senators have an opportunity to offer and debate them and that means kicking off debate, it means voting to proceed," McConnell, R-Ky., said Monday on the Senate floor. "And that will occur tomorrow." The announcement comes as Republicans struggle to garner the 50 GOP votes needed to let them move onto the bill, and as the party debates how to replace Obamacare...

    One of the Senate's strongest voices will be quieter this week following Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) diagnosis with brain cancer. The six-term Arizona Republican was in his home state recently having surgery to remove a blood clot from above his eye when doctors found a brain tumor. McCain, 80, received an outpouring of support and well wishes from his colleagues in Washington on Thursday following news of his condition, with many saying they expected to see him back on Capitol Hill as soon as possible. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) McCain's absence could spell more trouble for the fate of the GOP's health care...

    (Note: On Wednesday, the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix released a statement saying that tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma, an aggressive type of cancer, was associated with Senator McCain’s blood clot. The statement added that the tissue of concern was completely resected during last Friday’s procedure, and the Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options, which may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. The statement went on to say that “the Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent.” It is unclear...
  • Scoop: Trump in Talks with Cruz to Replace Sessions and Mueller

    President Trump is talking to Senator Ted Cruz and others about what they would do differently as Attorney General, should Jeff Sessions resign, as reports indicate. White House sources also report President Trump was truthful when he made comments expressing buyer’s remorse over appointing Jeff Sessions to the role. Trump staffers believe Sessions, Donald Trump Jr, and Rohrabacher aide Paul Behrends were unfairly scapegoated due to the left-wing Russia narrative. In addition, a replacement for special prosecutor Bob Mueller is being acitvely discussed as the President weighs the decision to fire the Rosenstein-appointed prosecutor. Many within the Trump camp...

    John McCain, after making a statement proclaiming publicly, that he will return to the Senate to remain with his friends and to continue to hate, envy, taunt and harass his enemies, is neither sound of mind or body. This gent is now living in "Looney Tunesville" 100%, through no fault of his own (Cancer has destroyed him). McCain has already amply demonstrated for all to see, he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. The good Governor of Arizona needs to declare McCain unfit to serve his office and immediately replace him with Ms. Kelly Ward. POTUS, Donald J....

    Arizona Sen. John McCain, a Russia hawk and occasional Donald Trump critic, blasted a report on the administration's new Syria posture just hours after revealing he had a cancerous brain tumor. McCain's statement faulted the administration for reportedly ending a covert program begun during the Obama administration to provide arms to Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad. 'If these reports are true, the administration is playing right into the hands of Vladimir Putin,' the Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement.
  • BOMBSHELL: Trump Accuses Leaker Comey of Trying to Hold Scandalous Dossier Over His Head

    President Trump held an interview this week with The New York Times. The embattled president accused former FBI Director Comey of threatening to hold the discredited Russian dossier over his head. The dossier of bizarre allegations was created by a far left group to damage President Trump during the election. LawNewz reported: He claims that FBI Director James Comey tried to hold the salacious dossier over his head, in order to gain “leverage” over him. It had previously been reported that when administration officials briefed the president at Trump Tower in January, Comey pulled him aside and told him about...

    Reports surface today that President Trump has cancelled the 2012/2013 covert CIA program giving weapons to ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria.  [Washington Post Link] Various news organizations frame the issue as cancelling the program to “arm the moderate opposition to Bashir Assad”.  However, those news reports are entirely false. We know the Obama administration was arming ISIS as part of the larger Syria strategy because Secretary of State John Kerry went on record admitting the Obama Syrian strategy was actually to arm ISIS and extremist Islamic groups (al-Nusra) against Assad. We also know Secretary Kerry was being truthful in that media-hidden, albeit recorded, admission because CTH specifically...
