    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump on Monday, warning that his decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will spark a wave of negative consequences. “President Trump’s decision to formally withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a serious mistake that will have lasting consequences for America’s economy and our strategic position in the Asia-Pacific region," McCain said in a statement.

    Arizona Sen. John McCain on Sunday said that he is still uncertain about whether President Trump will lead a successful administration. Asked if he has "confidence" in America's new commander in chief, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee twice said: "I do not know." "I do not know because has made so many comments that are contradictory," McCain told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "But I think the fact that he's appointed and nominated these outstanding individuals is bound to be an encouraging sign," he continued. "I trust them and have worked with them over many years."

    Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil executive with close business ties to Russia, saw his prospects of becoming secretary of state brighten Sunday after gaining the support of two influential Republican senators who had wavered on the nomination. “Though we still have concerns about his past dealings with the Russian government and President Vladimir Putin, we believe that Mr. Tillerson can be an effective advocate for U.S. interests,” Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in a statement.

    From the Sunday shows: Lindsey Graham and John McCain both said they'll vote to confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. Why it matters: Tillerson can clear the Senate with just Republican votes. His refusals to condemn Putin drew lots of attention at his confirmation hearing. Now it looks like he'll be just fine. The one to watch: Marco Rubio, who was the senator to put Tillerson through the ringer on Russia. He's still mum on his vote.

In an interview with ABC News' "This Week," the Arizona Republican also said he intended to vote to confirm Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"I couldn't have picked a better team. So I'm confident that he'll listen to them and be guided by them."

"The fact that this un-validated document, to say the least, was leaked — it’s somebody’s responsibility," said McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The very fact that it was leaked, one, is a commentary on this town," he said.

    U.S. Sen. John McCain has been known to hold a grudge, but there's one grudge the Republican from Arizona has been holding for nearly five years now. It stems back to comments U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, made during the 2008 presidential race, when McCain and his veep pick, then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were running a heated campaign against then-Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden. In a lengthy New Republic interview with McCain published Tuesday, McCain compares some of the rhetoric his campaign was using against Obama ("palling around with terrorists") to rhetoric directed at his campaign.

The Countering Russian Hostilities Act of 2017, whose chief sponsor is Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, will depute at an afternoon press conference, Politico reports. The bill is intended as a message that the GOP wishes to repudiate Russia for its hostile actions despite Republican president-elect Donald Trump has publicly questioned the country's involvement in the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

Guccione had been a big winner in the game of life but he played the endgame poorly and was about to become a big loser. This was, as so many in his losing situation always think, not the result of his poor decisions but always because of outside forces and "enemies."...

    1. The document [that Buzzfeed released] has no letterhead, no identification, no date, no nothing. For many good technical and even legal reasons, sensitive intelligence documents are created with plenty of tracking and identification information. For example, such a document would typically have a reference to the unit which produced it or an number-letter combination indicating the reliability of the source and of the information it contains. 2. The classification CONFIDENTIAL/SENSITIVE SOURCE is a joke. If this was a true document its level of classification would be much, much higher than “confidential” and since most intelligence documents come from sensitive...

(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...

    Republican Senator John McCain said on Sunday the United States could only improve its relations with Russia by taking a tough stance with President Putin, calling for stronger sanctions against Moscow. On a tour of the Baltic states, Ukraine and Georgia, McCain and other senators assured the former Soviet-dominated countries that the United States would support them, despite President-elect Donald Trump's praise of Putin and expressions of doubts about NATO. "We will strongly urge our colleagues toward more meaningful and stronger sanctions against Russia because of their attack on the United States of America," McCain told reporters in Georgia's capital...

    Unless he encounters substantial opposition, that is. Mr. Trump may have both houses of Congress under GOP control, but it’s a narrow 52-to-48 majority in the Senate -- meaning even just a few rogue GOPers could keep Trump-led legislation from passing. . . . Here are some of the people in the Republican Party who could throw a wrench in Mr. Trump’s plans: Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona)

    There are moments within investigative research when your jaw can stand agape as you recognize the scope of what you are reading or hearing. A brutally down-played audio of Secretary John Kerry is just such an occasion.(snip) This evidence within this single story would/should forever remove any credibility toward the U.S. foreign policy under President Obama. It also destroys the credibility of a large number of well known republicans. What the recording reveals is substantive: ♦ First, only regime change, the removal of Bashir Assad, in Syria was the goal for President Obama. This is admitted and outlined by Secretary...
  • James Woods Humiliates Sens. Graham and McCain For Their Love Affair With Democrats

    Conservative movie star James Woods is at it again on Twitter and is once again educating and entertaining with his patriotic and no nonsense posts about Liberals and warped career politicians. James Woods pointed out the obvious with great sarcastic flare – which is kind of his specialty. Lindsey Graham and John McCain’s rush to embrace Barack Obama’s faux angst at Russia with a pointless slap on the wrist makes them appear far more like Democrats than the Republicans they supposedly are. (tweet at link) Trying to tell career politicians apart can often be a vexing endeavor. Woods was referencing...

    KIEV, Jan 1 (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator John McCain promised on Saturday continued support for Kiev in the face of aggression from Moscow, as he spent New Year's Eve on the front line in Ukraine's eastern conflict zone. McCain was one of a bipartisan group of 27 U.S. senators who sent a letter to President-elect Donald Trump in December, urging him to take a tough line against Russia over what they termed its "military land grab" in Ukraine. "I send the message from the American people - we are with you, your fight is our fight and we will...

    As Donald Trump continues to shower president Vladimir Putin with praise, Sen. John McCain is leading GOP criticism of Russia's recent hacking.

'When you attack a country, it's an act of war,' he said on Ukrainian TV after meeting with President Petro Poroshenko. 'And so we have to make sure that there is a price to pay so that we can perhaps persuade Russians to stop this kind of attack on our very fundamentals of democracy.' McCain, who serves as...

    Some things never change. In full alignment with President Obama, the ever faithful war monger Senator John McCain calls for a declaration of war against Russia. …and if you disagree with him, well, you’re “a Hobbit“, or “a crazy“… or something. (Via Reuters) […] Republican John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on Friday that Russia must face a penalty for the cyber attacks and that is was possible to impose many sanctions. “When you attack a country, it’s an act of war,” McCain said in an interview with the Ukrainian TV channel “1+1” while on a...

    t looks like John McCain's remarks about Donald Trump supporters being crazies has backfired on him big time. Now McCain's life is being dissected piece by piece, beginning with his war record, outbursts of angry insanity, to his overall anti-American tenure as Senator of Arizona. Seemingly, McCain has always been a traitor to his country, beginning with his stint in Viet Nam, where he was accused by many fellow soldiers of collaborating with the enemy while being held a POW in N. Viet Nam. Colonel Ted Guy, McCain's commander during his time as a POW was preparing a case of...
