    John Weaver, a veteran Republican operative who co-founded the Lincoln Project, declared in a statement to Axios on Friday that he sent “inappropriate,” sexually charged messages to multiple men. “To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you,” Weaver said. “The truth is that I'm gay,” he added. “And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led...

Salter is co-writing the script with television producer Craig Turk (“The Good Wife,” “FBI”). The film is being made with support from McCain’s family. His widow, Cindy McCain, will serve as an executive producer. “John’s story is one of incredible heroism, of serving causes greater than...

    “The View” co-host Meghan McCain touted the way her father handled defeat in 2008 and suggested President Trump and his family would “melt down” and create “absolute bedlam, anger, and hysteria” if they’re defeated by Democratic nominee Joe Biden. [Snip] “When my Dad lost in ‘08, he huddled my brothers and sisters in a corner and said buck up, we’re the luckiest people in the entire world and we’re not going to feel sorry for ourselves, we made history. He then thanked the secret service and told them to go home to their family,” McCain wrote in a tweet. “I...

"Two years after he died, you still obsess over my dad. It kills you that no one will ever love you or remember you like they loved and remember him. He served his country with honor, you have disgraced the office of the presidency," she tweeted, responding to Trump advising people to "check out last in his class John McCain, one of the most overrated people in D.C." in an earlier tweet.

    President Donald Trump has vented his fury at late Senator John McCain, following the release of newly declassified text messages from former FBI agent Peter Strzok indicating that McCain leaked the infamous 'dirty dossier' to legendary journalist Carl Bernstein. 'Check out last in his class John McCain, one of the most overrated people in D.C.' Trump tweeted late on Wednesday of the Arizona Republican who died of brain cancer in 2018, linking to a report on the new messages. The text messages, released by Republican Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley on Wednesday, include a January 9, 2017 exchange between...

John McCain, a Republican, confided in him to privately disparage members of his own party. In an interview with The Atlantic released on Monday, Obama discussed at length his presidency, current events, and his upcoming 768-page memoir in which he attacks the Republican Party base. When speaking with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, Obama hinted that he wasn’t alone in his criticism of Republicans.

    Patriotic Americans have caught on to the fact that there is something deeply unfair about the presidential debates. The nominally Republican Chairman of Presidential Debate Commission, Frank Fahrenkopf, is both a co-founder and current board member of the International Republican Institute (IRI), a top “Color Revolution” propaganda outfit. The IRI was run by Never Trump neoconservative John McCain for decades. It is closely linked to the thoroughly discredited Steele Dossier at the center of the Russia Hoax. Bipartisanship in the Trump era all too often means that the corrupt establishment elements of both parties join arms to undermine Trump and...

    From the failed Chris Wallace-Biden tag-team attempt against Trump, to biased moderator Susan Page’s shrill interruptions of Vice President Pence, to the Presidential Debate Commission’s ridiculous and politically motivated effort to force a “virtual debate” on Biden’s behalf, patriotic Americans have caught on to the fact that there is something deeply unfair about the presidential debates. This clear bias has justifiably led many observers to wonder what is wrong with the Presidential Debate Commission. Just yesterday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called out the Commission directly: Kayleigh’s characterization of the Commission is of course correct. However, its corruption and...
  • Flashback: Biden Mocked John McCain As Angry, Gutless Man

    In 2008, Democrat Joe Biden mercilessly criticized late Senator John McCain as “an angry man” too afraid to confront Barack Obama to his face. It is an important reminder in the wake of an endorsement of Biden by McCain’s widow, Cindy. Friction during the 2008 election arose when then-Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin mentioned links between Obama and 1960s radical leader of a domestic terrorist group, Bill Ayers. McCain had resisted making such links for quite some time, but Palin finally put them at the forefront as the campaign was winding down. Biden, displeased, launched an attack on the...

Article 4 allows for members to call a special session of NATO's North Atlantic Council. The letter was sent to Defense Secretary James Mattis, Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan and current CIA Director and Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo.

    Several hundred former aides to President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain announced Thursday that they are endorsing Joe Biden for president. The statements of support for the Democratic nominee come as President Donald Trump prepares to accept his party's nomination on the final night of the Republican National Convention. A political action committee, 43 Alumni for Biden, that launched last month posted a list of nearly 300 members of the Bush administration or campaigns who are publicly backing Biden. The names range from members of the Cabinet, including former Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez and former Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman,...
  • Sarah Palin Claims Kamala Harris ‘Prostituted’ Herself For The VP Nominee Position

    Right after Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as his 2020 running mate, Sarah Palin wrote a surprisingly gracious note of advice to the California senator on her Instagram page. But alas, the graciousness didn’t last for long. Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show ahead of Harris’ speech on night three of the Democratic National Convention, Palin predicted that “the media” would treat the Democratic ticket like “delicate pieces of China” compared to the way she was treated in 2008 when she was running with John McCain on the Republican ticket.

    The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the...
