    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?

    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...

    The Washington Post ^ | 1/16/2018 | Senator John McCain
    President Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in the same way. He has threatened to continue his attempt to discredit the free press by bestowing “fake news awards” upon reporters and news outlets whose coverage he disagrees with. Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy.

    TEL AVIV — For the past three days, Sen. John McCain’s office has not responded to Breitbart News phone and email inquiries seeking clarification of the Arizona politician’s role in delivering the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration. In a New York Times oped last week, the founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped get the dossier to McCain using an “emissary,” with the goal of McCain passing the information contained in the questionable document to U.S. intelligence agencies. The disclosure raises...

    The House Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena to an associate of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) over his connection with the controversial dossier containing unverified allegations about President Trump and his ties to Russia, The Hill confirmed on Wednesday. Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) wants to talk to David Kramer, a former State Department official and current senior director at the nonprofit McCain Institute, about his visit to London in November 2016, a source familiar with the matter confirmed. The Washington Examiner's Byron York first reported on the subpoena. While in London, Kramer met with the dossier's author, former British...
  • Where's John McCain?

    12/31/2017 11:09:15 PM PST · by Windflier · 142 replies
    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...

John McCain, who is battling brain cancer, would return to vote for tax reform this week if needed to pass the bill, though the senator’s office later forecasted a January return to Washington. Mr. McCain had been undergoing treatment for a viral infection at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington but Sunday returned to Arizona to spend Christmas with his family, according to the senator’s office. Mr. Trump said he had spoken with Mr. McCain’s wife, Cindy, and that the senator would be available for the vote, which is expected as soon...

    Sen. John McCain headed back to Arizona today and will miss the tax reform vote this week. 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...

    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...

McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still...

Experts say that although it looks like a small dinosaur that could be near impossible as flightless dinosaurs...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for recovery from the side effects of another round of treatment for brain cancer, according to his office. McCain, who missed a third straight day of Senate votes Wednesday, has been undergoing rounds of chemotherapy and radiation to treat glioblastoma, the terminal form of brain cancer he was diagnosed with in July. McCain has been undergoing treatments since early September at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, next to Walter Reed. Two friends close to McCain, requesting anonymity to speak about his condition, said there...
