Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of
McCain should be stripped of the Armed Forces Committee Chairmanship. This is the most dirty act of betrayal possible. The man did not even have the courtesy to call Trump, and ask him, because he was so anxious to stab Trump in the back. McCain is persona non grata, and forever branded with lying traitor on his forehead. McCain has not met a terrorist that he does not want to arm, or a country he does not want to get the US involved in militarily. McCain should court martialed out of the Senate.
The pressure should be unrelenting for McCain to do the honorable thing and resign. This was such an act of betrayal and dishonesty, that his name should forever be associated with one of the most despicable politically motivated deeds in modern history. He must be confronted and then denounced.
To poster #5, McPain is despised by the POWs he was interned with. He was a traitor then and is a traitor now. If it weren´t for his dad and grandfather being respected flag officers, admirals at that, he would have been fired for crashing not one, but five navy aircraft. I guess that makes him an Ace. Not!
I call AZ home and I am totally disgusted with both of the senators from this great state of Arizona. I hope Dr. Kelli Ward tromps on Flake (great name for a true flake) and brings some dignity to the US Senate.
Some posters don’t seem to understand that a person doesn’t have to be elected unanimously to an office. Not every person in a state has to vote for a senator for them to be elected. I am stunned at the ignorance displayed on this. If someone we don’t like is elected, it doesn’t mean that every person or every Republican voted for them. Just enough votes for a majority.
Before posting such opinions, posters should go to the respective state offices that give the registration count just before elections. (In California, that is the office of the Secretary of State.) In California, they’d find out that Republican registrations in the millions are seriously outnumbered by Democrats in more millions. Outnumbered Republican voters should not be held responsible and slammed for what happens in elections.
#23: that´s the concern. He switches to Dem as does Graham and causes major problems for Trump. I´d love it if Manchin crossed over as he´s said he might. That would take some of the power away from the bobsy twins.
Best if Arizona were to just recall him or demand his resignation and then replace him. What a horrible man he´s become.
McCain would never, ever have been selected to become a naval aviator, being at the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy (894 out of 899). Only because of nepotism; his father and grandfather being Admirals, was he allowed to fly. He was known as McNasty in high school. How this aged p**** keeps being re-elected is sad. He should be in a rest home.
#5 he was no hero. All of that is a myth. I remember very well when this snake came back from Vietnam. He should be kicked out of the senate, Arizona should recall him, he should be removed from his committees and also stripped of his military commission and benefits.
McCain was such a lousy pilot that he destroyed 5 aircraft before his last one. He and Kerry conspired to cover up and hide the survival of American POWs in VietNam. This guy was never a hero. Being shot down and taken prisoner doesn´t make you a hero. Thank God that he wasn´t elected as President, as he is nuttier than most demoncrats. Most people voted for Palin rather than McCain.
What drove me crazy was watching his little trollop of a daughter sitting on the panel of One lucky guy (or whatever it´s called) opining about the ramifications of the dossier that her stinkin´ dad gave to the FBI. She was acting as if the fake document fell from the sky. Get her off that couch, Fox!
McCain just aligned himself with the likes of Jane Fonda. Willing to say or do anything for personal benefit. He can no longer complain about Fonda´s taking prisoners´ precious notes and pleas for help and giving them to the enemy.
If he ever was an American hero, which I don´t agree with, he is no longer. If you do one thing good, then spend the rest of your life shi-ing on America, you no longer get credit for that one thing. And, that is what McCain has done.
A true hero from the Hanoi Hilton was Rep. Sam Johnson from Texas. They barely talk. McTraitor broke faster than anyone else in the Hilton, giving him great infamy among the rest, who STILL tended his wounds and nursed him to health, although they witnessed others who died from their torture. McVain has been living with demons ever since.
His traitorous ways have just come home to roost. There is no way out of this one. He´d doomed. If McChins McConnell doesn´t oust him after inauguration and replace him with Ted Cruz, there will be war in the GOP.
WASHINGTON D.C. — Even on a beautiful day with temperatures in the high 60s, organizers could not muster a decent-sized protest turnout against President Donald Trump at an LGBT event on Sunday outside the Trump International Hotel, a few blocks from the White House. A group of little more than two dozen protesters danced, kissed, held signs, and played music as an almost equal number of photographers captured the spectacle of social justice warriors who lacked any coherent message except free-floating contempt for the president who took office less than one month ago. (Tweets/Video) As Reuters reported several weeks ago,
Several hundred protesters gathered across the river from Trump International Hotel and Tower on Sunday afternoon, the latest in a series of Loop demonstrations against President Donald J. Trump. Chants included: “Hey Hey Ho Ho, Donald Trump has got to go!” and “From Palestine to Mexico, boarder walls have got to go!” Colleen Rockelmann and her son, Colin, 11, of Vernon Hills, attended to support immigrant students and teachers at the dual-language school Colin attends. “I came here because I wanted to make a difference, and I want to say that it’s not OK to force people out of the
Donald Trump prevailed where other Republican presidential candidates failed in Midwestern states in part because of new right-to-work laws that have diminished the power and influence of the teachers’ unions, according to labor policy analysts. Final election results have Trump narrowly winning Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes by a margin of 47.9 to 46.9 percent over Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate. Trump had 1,409,467 votes to Clinton’s 1,382,210. In Michigan, the margins were even closer with Trump winning that state’s 16 electoral votes with 47.6 percent against Clinton who had 47.3 percent of the vote. Trump had 2,279,805 votes to Clinton’s
Now that Donald Trump is president, our “fact checkers” have gone into overdrive. Every day, they crank out news stories purporting to correct Trump’s errors. More often than not, the “fact checkers” are merely relating the other side–the Democratic Party’s side–of the story. This story by Politifact is typical: “Fact-checking President Donald Trump’s Florida rally.” Politifact claims to correct five things that Trump said: Trump takes Jefferson out of context- Trump used the words of President Thomas Jefferson to make the case that the media, and newspapers, are illegitimate. Wrong. Trump made the case that the news media are biased and
ABC’s Jon Karl, filling in for George Stephanopoulos on This Week today, ended the program this morning with a few thoughts on President Trump‘s tweet calling the media the “enemy.” He first provided important context by saying there’s “nothing new” about presidents attacking the press, recalling what Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt said about reporters while they were in office. As for Trump himself, Karl said that many years ago, the New York mogul was “nothing but media-friendly” and during the campaign “he was the most accessible major candidate.” But he ended with this serious note about the president’s media
President Trump on Sunday sought to clear up a comment he made at a campaign rally about problems in Sweden, saying he was referring to immigration concerns. “My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden,” Mr. Trump said on Twitter. At a rally Saturday in Florida, Mr. Trump was talking about terrorist attacks and concerns about migration in Europe from Middle Eastern countries when he mentioned the Scandinavian country. “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden
President Trump made a comment during his rally on Saturday about Sweden, and something he noted on Friday, the evening prior. President Trump was talking about the “refugee crisis” and his strict immigration proposals called “extreme vetting”. “We’ve got to keep our country safe,” he said. “You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look
WASHINGTON— When North Korea fired a ballistic missile into waters between South Korea and Japan, President Donald Trump moved quickly to show U.S. resolve. He appeared within hours alongside visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and said the U.S. “stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent.” Trump happened to be hosting Abe that day in Florida. Yet his lack of any mention of U.S. treaty ally South Korea didn’t go unnoticed by new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. So, while on his first official trip, Tillerson arranged a three-way meeting in Germany with the Japanese and South Korean foreign
Progressive activists continue to take a cue from the Tea Party movement with plans to funnel into town hall meetings this week while members of Congress are at home and make a ruckus. Groups, including President Barack Obama´s Organizing for Action, are turning to a newer organization, Indivisible Guide, to coordinate tactics. Launched in December by former Congressional staffers, Indivisible is providing activists with training manuals, such as one that explains how to have a ´successful´ town hall. Scroll down for video (Photos/Video) This week, they tapped President Bill Clinton´s Labor Secretary Robert Reich to record a PSA for the
AUSTIN, Texas- Texas election officials have acknowledged that hundreds of people were allowed to bypass the state´s toughest-in-the-nation voter ID law and improperly cast ballots in the November presidential election by signing a sworn statement instead of showing a photo ID. The chief election officers in two of the state´s largest counties are now considering whether to refer cases to local prosecutors for potential perjury charges or violations of election law. Officials in many other areas say they will simply let the mistakes go, citing widespread confusion among poll workers and voters. The Texas law requires voters to show one
PROVIDENCE, R.I.- The United States on Monday marks Presidents Day, a holiday that´s taking on a new meaning for some Americans this year as President Donald Trump - to the dismay of some and delight of others - upends traditional notions of the office. The holiday began as a celebration of George Washington´s birthday, Feb. 22, and its official name remains Washington´s Birthday. Throughout the 19th century, communities celebrated with parades and fireworks, said Evan Phifer, a research historian at the White House Historical Association. In the late 1800s, Feb. 22 became a federal holiday. The holiday was moved to
A group of liberal moms at an elite New York City school torpedoed an annual ice-skating party because Donald Trump rebuilt the rink in the 1980s. The Dalton School said that the event was shelved due to low participation, though reported anti-Trump sentiment is said to be the real reason. When The New York Post asked the school´s parent association president about the allegation, she refused to comment: Dalton’s PA president, LaMae DeJongh, declined to comment — but sources said the low attendance was due to rampant anti-Trump sentiment at the elite prep school, which boasts alumni such as CNN’s
Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,
On Friday, President Donald Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.On Saturday, Trump’s sons Eric and Don Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the ‘‘Beverly Hills of Dubai.’’ Meanwhile, New York police will keep watch outside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, the chosen home of first lady Melania Trump and son Barron. And the tiny township of Bedminster, New Jersey, is Source corrected
About 15 people huddled in a luxury apartment building, munching on danishes as they plotted out their plan to have California secede from the United States. "I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of an independent California," Geoff Lewis said as he stood in a glass-walled conference room adorned with California´s grizzly-bear flag and a sign reading "California is a nation, not a state." Sweaty onlookers from the gym across the hall peered in curiously. Bolstered by the election of President Donald Trump, the group, Yes California, is collecting the 585,407 signatures necessary to place a secessionist question on the 2018
NASHVILLE, Tennessee--A total of 18 people were fired from a Tennessee business after joining the nation-wide protest "A Day Without Immigrants." The 18 employees at Bradley Coatings, Incorporated in Nolensville, Tennessee told their supervisors on Wednesday they´d be taking part in the nationwide movement. Then, on Thursday, they were told they no longer had jobs ."We are the team leaders directly under the supervisors and they informed us last night that we could not go back to work and the boss said we were fired," one employee said.

The Barack Obama Presidential Center in Chicago could require a $1.5 billion endowment, its architects say, three times what was raised for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. Husband-and-wife architectural team Tod Williams and Billie Tsien noted that it will be difficult to raise such a huge sum because Obama scrupulously declined to do much fund-raising while he was still in office. The Obama Center is due to be so expensive because it will require the construction of both a presidential library and a museum about the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama. And federal requirements now stipulate that former
Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators
SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote. (Snip) Though the letter is long on utopian ideals, it´s short on actual details. Zuckerberg
Dr. Sebastian Gorka has a PhD, big vocabulary, huge knowledge base and even a British accent -- all the markers of an elitist establishment, if not leftist, thinker. But he seems to be in complete sync with his boss, President Trump. The BBC interviewer, with his fashionable three-day beard, open collar, and heavy ‘tude, probably was not expecting what he got when he led off his live shot interview from the White House lawn with a snarky dig at President Trump’s sanity.
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness. Of course, this is merely the observation of
Howard Kurtz says that the latest Fox News Poll shows that Americans are "so polarized" and that there is "so much distrust" of the media. The poll, released Friday evening, reflected that 45 percent of voters trust President Trump more than the media, while 42 percent say the media are more trustworthy. On "The First 100 Days" tonight, Kurtz said the poll should elicit some "soul-searching for our [journalistic] professionals." The poll also found that 68 percent of voters think the media is tougher on Trump than President Obama, while 18 percent said it is "easier" on Trump. As FoxNews.com further reported: People
Senior White House officials and members of the National Security Council are pushing former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as a replacement for ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Among Bolton´s most vocal supporters are senior administration officials loyal to Flynn and who are upset at the general´s firing. Multiple sources described an effort by these Flynn loyalists to ensure that Bolton is selected as his replacement. The selection of Bolton as the next national security adviser would empower Flynn´s allies still in the
An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions. Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall. In a new Facebook post, OFA calls on
