    In 2015, Sen. John McCain introduced a resolution to implement President Donald Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy to charge every migrant caught entering the country illegally. McCain’s legislation did not give any exemption for children and would have created the exact, same mess we’re in today:

    Corey Lewandowski has sparked outrage after he mocked a story regarding a 10-year-old disabled illegal immigrant girl who was separated from her mom at the border. 'There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won't sink,' Megyn Kelly tweeted. 'This man should not be afforded a national platform to spew his hate.' Meghan McCain called the clip 'so horrible, even by Lewandowski standards'. Columnist John Podhoretz wrote: 'Womp womp will be the sound Corey Lewandowski's soul makes as it descends to Hell.'

    GOP’s McCain and Romney Were on the FBI’s Radar for Funding Trump Dossier; Then Comey Pulled the Plug on the Probe John McCain’s and Mitt Romney’s ties to Fusion GPS had the makings of a promising federal investigation before FBI agents were told to stand down and walk away from compelling evidence, FBI insiders said. Now Romney is running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah, another lesson in why the FBI’s chronic issuance of get-out-of-jail-free cards has turned the once-great law enforcement agency into a rubber-stamping political hack. Almost one year ago True Pundit broke the story linking McCain...

    PHOENIX - Arizona Sen. John McCain weighed in Monday on the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy for undocumented immigrants crossing the border. The Republican senator tweeted Monday afternoon, saying the administration should put an end to the policy. "The administration’s current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded," McCain tweeted. "The administration has the power to rescind this policy. It should do so now."

    If the average citizens were saying the things that judges, politicians, many of the millionaires, and most of the billionaires are, they would already have lawsuits against them for defamation of character and slander. How long can a crime continue to be publicized and not be spoken about? Where is the news…there owned by sore losers who wanted Hillary to win. Retaliation? Get their paid puppets to generate fake news, ask stupid questions, and keep the President from want he really wants to do. How long will the attacks verbally go on?

    Arizona Sen. John McCain - scion of Navy brass, flyboy turned Vietnam war hero and tireless defender of American global leadership - now faces terminal brain cancer. I am a scholar of American politics. And I believe that, regardless of his storied biography and personal charm, three powerful trends in American politics thwarted McCain's lifelong ambition to be president. They were the rise of the Christian right, partisan polarization and declining public support for foreign wars. Republican McCain was a champion of bipartisan legislating, an approach that served him and the Senate well. But as political divides have grown, bipartisanship...

    Full title..............'There's no replacing him': Arizona Republicans say it's 'inappropriate' to talk about the future of John McCain's seat as he battles terminal brain cancer................Senator John McCain's legacy was thrust into focus nearly one year ago when he announced his brain cancer diagnosis. The six-term Senator and decorated Vietnam War veteran is now fighting the illness from his beloved Arizona, and filling the role of one of the few Congressional Republican voices to publicly rebuke Trump administration decisions. Yet the question of what happens if McCain steps down from office before 2022 is a lingering one, casting an uncomfortable haze...

    Sen. John McCain implicitly criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday for "parroting" North Korean and Chinese rhetoric about US-South Korean joint military exercises following the summit between Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un earlier this week. "Parroting Chinese and North Korean propaganda by saying joint exercises are 'provocative' undermines our security and alliances," the Arizona Republican said in a statement. McCain's statement did not specifically mention Trump in relation to the word "provocative," but Trump had used the words "provocative" and "war games" to describe the joint military exercises at a press conference in Singapore....

    GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) blasted the Trump administration's decision to halt military exercises with South Korea as part of the ongoing negotiations with North Korea. "Suspending U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises is a mistake. Making unnecessary and unreciprocated concessions is not in our interests—and it is a bad negotiating tactic," McCain said in a statement on Thursday. Trump announced after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that the United States will stop “war games” with South Korea “unless and until” negotiations with the North go poorly. Agence France-Presse reported on Thursday that the Pentagon had “suspended...

    Meghan McCain slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "buddy-buddy" meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom she denounced as a "dictator." The cohost of ABC’s “The View” and daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that, though she was initially on board with the summit, she was disturbed by the symbolism of both nations’ flags flying together in Singapore. “This is a totalitarian communist dictator in the same vein as Hitler — murder, enslavement, imprisonment, sexual violence, starvation, forced abortions, political, racial, religious persecution,” McCain said. “We are not the same,” she continued. “[Kim’s North Korea] is...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took a jab at Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday, saying he was "not so sure" about McCain's remarks on Saturday that a majority of Americans favor free trade. "I'm not so sure John's right about where America is on trade," Graham told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week." "The [Sen.] Bernie Sanders [I-Vt.] element of the Democratic Party doesn't stand for free trade. Hillary Clinton said she would get out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership if she had become president. There is a movement in our party that Trump's seized that got him the nomination, and...

  • Can someone please tell John McCain that he can resign now?

    June 1st has come and passed. Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. Under Arizona law, if John McCain had vacated office before June 1st ("vacated" meaning "died"), there would be a special election in November to replace him. But having passed this June deadline, if McCain resigns he can be replaced by an appointee of the governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, a conservative Republican, and this appointee will serve until 2020. The problem is, McCain hasn't resigned. McCain has been so ill that he hasn't been seen in the Senate for months. He has missed countless votes. Arizona is...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) excoriated President Trump on Friday for calling on Russia to be invited back to the Group of Seven, blasting the move as the “antithesis” of principled realism and “a sure path to diminishing America’s leadership in the world.” He became the third Republican senator to condemn Trump’s statement that the G-7, a group of major industrial powers, should not be meeting this weekend in Quebec without Russia. McCain contrasted Trump’s friendly words for Russia to his hard-line negotiating tactics with allies such as Canada, Mexico and the European Union on trade. “The president has inexplicably shown...

    The McCain machine operates in part to ensure that populist or conservative candidates do not make it out of Republican primaries. Only the most mega-corporate-friendly candidates and their consultants are granted access to all of the Party’s resources. McCain’s stable of candidates this year include Tiffany Shedd, running in CD1, Rep. Martha McSally, running to replace Sen. Jeff Flake, Lea Marquez Peterson, running in CD2, and Governor Doug Ducey. Popular challengers State Sen. Steve Smith, former State Sen. Dr. Kelli Ward, Brandon Martin, and former Secretary of State Ken Bennett are generally denied equal access to the Party apparatus. In...
