Angry McCain ups ante, calls
Paul, Cruz ´wacko birds´

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2013 9:16:49 AM

Elder Sen. John McCain, who this week engaged in friendly fire when he launched his "maverick" missiles at fellow Republicans seeking clarification on the administration´s drone policies, has upped the ante, deriding Tea Party-backed GOP lawmakers as "wacko birds." McCain, who hit the Senate floor Thursday to belittle Sen. Rand Paul´s filibuster, which succeeded in getting an answer from President Obama that drones won´t be used to kill Americans on U.S. soil, even suggested that the Kentucky senator and his allies, like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, don´t represent the GOP mainstream.

Someone with a spine needs to tell this 0bama lovin´ jerk to shut up. He helps 0bama every day and plays right into his hands when he comes out and behaves like a complete fool. Does McConnell have the stomach to do it?

It is indeed telling that McCain´s first objection to GOP Senator Rand Paul and GOP Senator Ted Cruz is not the manner in which they are performing their sworn Constitutional duty, but that he believes they stole the "media megaphone" away from him.

Could McCain make it any more plain where his true priorities lie?

McCain...unfortunately...has reached that stage of life known as ´past it´.

At some point he may have been relevant, but if he´s what passes for relevant in conservative territory these days - we´re in trouble.

He is the reason the we have Obama for President. He would rather fight with people in his own party then the Democrats. If he had not kissed up to Obama with he was running for President, I might have voted for him. Instead we had not the lesser of two evils, we just had two evils , and neither was worth voting for. No choice for the highest post in the land.

He has stayed too long at the Ball. Like his departed buddy, Ted Kennedy, who also stayed around too long, McCain needs to retire and start a new chapter in his life. He is everything the Republican Party is not going to be in 2016 and his carping with an up and comer like Rand Paul shows just how out of touch he is. Know when to leave the Ball, John. You have already stayed too long.

Too bad Senator McCain cannot seem to muster the same energy and invective to use against Barack Obama and his conspiracy of radical Leftists who are busy "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" right under McCain´s self-righteous nose.

McCain, we remember, is the presidential candidate who assured Americans that his opponent Barack Obama was a fine man and a loyal American who would make a good president.

Senator McCain has never truly appreciated what America is dealing with in the person of Barack Obama and his confederates. He has been fighting the last war the entire time. He is too old, too behind the times, and too set in his ways to help, much less to lead in the fight against the Obama extremists who are intent upon changing the very nature of American government and life.

He can neither lead, follow, nor get out of the way. He is an obstacle and a impediment. He provides aid and comfort to the enemy but is so totally clueless he doe not even realize what he is doing.

Please go away, Senator McCain. Hanging around much longer will only besmirch your years of service and stain your legacy.

If I remember correctly, two weeks before the election in 2008, John McCain closed up the election headquarters in our city. It is at that point that I knew that John McCain was working against conservatives. All of the energy that Sarah Palin brought to the campaign, he destroyed it.

These 13 "Republican" senators should have been paying their own tab at the Kennedy hotel where they met with the President. I don´t know if they did but we taxpayers are being fed a line.

McCaine has a temper that will not quit, and while he acquits himself well under some circumstances, I can´t bear him in others. He certainly would have been better than Obama, as he holds to some ethics, but I held my nose mightily when I voted for him. On the other hand, Cruz strikes me, thus far, as just the ticket.

McCain calling someone else "wacko?" McCain has been a thorn in the side of America for decades. An unbalanced fraud and a narcissist! Rand Paul is a great man, a real representative of the people, doing his best, while McCain and his sissy friend, Lindsey Graham, dine with and graciously kiss the rump of 0bama. And McCain is the specific reason we are under the yoke of 0bama. Won´t this old fool ever retire?

I am convinced McCain ran in 2008 to get back at the conservatives who voted against him in 2000. He was so bitter, especially about South Carolina. He obviously didn´t want to win in 2008. When Palin caught fire unexpectedly, he suspended his campaign and started saying ´we shouldn´t be afraid of Barack Obama´. He ran to lose,it was worth it to put the conservatives in their place.

ObamaCare ‘death panel’ faces
growing opposition from Democrats

ObamaCare’s cost-cutting board — memorably called a “death panel” by Sarah Palin — is facing growing opposition from Democrats who say it will harm people on Medicare. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean drew attention to the board designed to limit Medicare cost growth when he called for its repeal in an op-ed late last month. Dean was quickly criticized by supporters of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), who noted his ties to the healthcare industry as an adviser to a major D.C. lobbying firm. But the former Vermont governor is not the

President Obama told U.S. troops on Wednesday that Americans would not shrink in the face of terror threats that forced the closure of nearly two dozen diplomatic facilities overseas. “The United States is never going to retreat from the world,” Obama said to Marines at Camp Pendleton, near San Diego. “We don’t get terrorized.” The Obama administration has alluded to a significant threat to Americans abroad, ordering the evacuation of non-essential personnel from a U.S. compound in Yemen — and ramping up drone strikes there. Obama and his surrogates have repeatedly trumpeted the decimation of terrorist

Obamacare is an "anti-poverty program" aiding poor blacks and Latinos, especially in inner cities, and will help those minorities win health insurance they otherwise wouldn´t get, according to Harvard´s — and the nation´s — leading expert on poverty. In a paper that marks the 25th anniversary of his groundbreaking study of the poor, "The Truly Disadvantaged," Harvard sociologist William Julius Wilson said that without Obamacare and the president´s first-term stimulus programs, poverty in the nation would be far worse. "Quite frankly, I think that Obama´s programs have prevented poverty, including concentrated poverty, from rapidly rising,

Most of the 24 health care co-ops created under Obamacare are in danger of running out of money before they even begin offering health insurance to consumers, according to the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services. The 24 nonprofits, intended to create competition for private insurance companies, are funded by a $2 billion loan program authorized by Obamacare to cover their startup costs. The co-ops are expected to become self-sustaining and repay their loans with interest. But 11 of the 16 co-ops the IG reviewed said they expect startup costs to exceed

After many setbacks, Hasan’s trial finally began this week, only to be delayed yet again on Wednesday. My recovery has been long and agonizing.

WASHINGTON — For the last week, the Obama Administration has been in overdrive, suddenly engaged in the war on terror that it has denied for the last four and a half years. (Snip) While they play a game of “wag the dog,” the obvious threat is all but ignored by the administration and the media. What is it? It is the painfully open border in the south. Why would terrorists attack hardened targets in the Middle East when they can waltz over our southern border and find a cornucopia of soft targets right in the American heartland?

The smiling, earnest naivete of Ms. Burnett suggested a graduate student who worked, you know, like really hard at the library all weekend — but apparently didn’t get within spitting distance of a reasonable conclusion.

In seven short months, Ted Cruz has become the most controversial member of the Senate. Perhaps the most combative member of a chamber known for comity, Cruz’s withering criticisms of Washington have made him a champion for the conservative base and a potential pot stirrer in the 2016 GOP nominating contest. Cruz, whom I profile in the new issue of the magazine, sat down with TIME on Aug. 2 at a hotel in New Orleans, where he delivered a speech to the RedState Gathering of conservative activists.

Details of a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration program that feeds tips to federal agents and then instructs them to alter the investigative trail were published in a manual used by agents of the Internal Revenue Service for two years. The practice of recreating the investigative trail, highly criticized by former prosecutors and defense lawyers after Reuters reported it this week, is now under review by the Justice Department. Two high-profile Republicans have also raised questions about the procedure. A 350-word entry in the Internal Revenue Manual instructed agents of the U.S. tax agency to omit any reference

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July. "Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extended his 15 minutes of fame Wednesday, as headlines tied his saga to President Barack Obama’s decision to cancel a planned summit meeting in Moscow next month with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now.

The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory."

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013.

Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

You can get a deconstruction of the media at many places. The people who visit the Treehouse want to see the entire context; The entire truth, as it presents. So here we go…. In any endeavor of corruption and misleading governance, the control of, and support by, the media, is an absolute necessity. The USSR needed Pravda to keep the ruse of governance for decades. The need of/by the U.S. government has steadily grown over the course of several progressive decades; but the urgency has increased exponentially over the past five years with the extremes
