Arizona Sen. John McCain "sometimes" regrets his vote for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, especially in the wake of Tillerson floating the idea that the United States has been taking the wrong approach in Syria. McCain said on CBS Sunday said his vote in favor of Tillerson pains him on occasion, and comments Tillerson said made about the conflicting plans of the United States and Russia in Syria, which McCain saw as kowtowing to the Kremlin, are troubling. "Sometimes I do," McCain said when asked if he regrets voting for Tillerson. "But, I´m still torn by the fact that the American
I suppose that voting for the Democrat in Arizona wouldn´t be much worse EXCEPT for putting Schumer in charge of the Senate. These are tough choices some times. We will try hard to take Flake out in 2018 but it won´t be easy. We have 2 good candidates in the primary to beat him, Kelly Ward, and Jeff Dewitt. We will need to get only 1 of them to run!!!
Although he was reelected last November and has five and a half years remaining in his Senate term, John "Keating Five" McCain has lost whatever sense he might have once had, and ought to resign his seat immediately. He´s well done. Baked. Senile.
In the long run, because of the intense electoral reaction last November to Obama´s crack-brained statecraft, his presidency--as harmful as it was--might have been preferable to McCain´s, which would have been Bush lite lite lite, harmful to the Right, further damaging our side by association with the principle free McCain. In a sense, McCain´s loss to Obama led us ultimately to Trump, who fights for America and her allies. So I´m glad McCain lost. He´s still a loser, and always will be. If he had one iota of self-awareness, he´d be on suicide watch.
Tillerson as head of an oil conglomerate has probably had more dealing with the power brokers in the Mid East than the entire top floor of our state dept. Trump recognized that when he appointed him. Folks like McCain spend their lives in the Washington bubble believing that all diplomacy originates there.
Can someone get a petition & get rid of McCain. He´s an extreme embarrassment to the country & party. Does anyone like him? His hatred & envy of Trump is sickening. Trump is getting the job done & McCain can´t handle it. Tillerson gets McCain straight every time he makes a stupid statement . I really believe the senate would be 100000% better without McCain.
When I was preparing to vote in 08, a friend asked me who I was voting for. I answered McCain. Because of Sarah and the fact that Obama was the Manchurian candidate, I had to vote for the crazy traitor.
Ultimately, the choice of McCain or Obama was no choice at all.
Sometimes the People of Arizona regret voting for you as their US Senator. You are a despicable fool sir with no respect or appreciation of any one or any thing. You can choose to be for it or against it and you are obviously against it. Poor choice.
What a shameless goof ball MC-Ripcord has become. Sorry Johnny but every time I hear you or see you I have profound regrets in voting for your have hearted efforts against O´Dimwit back in 2008. If it wasn´t for Sarah Palin that regret would´ve been much worse. I won´t rehash your conduct then but your conduct now speaks volumes about the kind of person you are. Having said that now would someone please do this old fool a favor and find a fellow RINO, a liberal politician or some idiot in the main stream media. That way Mc-Crash can firmly attach his lips to that person´s posterior. That´ll shut him up at least for a minute.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday and was moved to an inpatient rehabilitation facility after more than a month of surgeries, Fox News confirmed. Scalise, R-La., had been treated at MedStar Washington Hospital since June 14, when he and four others were shot during a congressional baseball practice. “Congressman Steve Scalise has made excellent progress in his recovery from a life-threatening gunshot wound six weeks ago,” the hospital said in a statement Wednesday. “Yesterday, he was discharged from MedStar Washington Hospital Center and is now beginning a period of intensive rehabilitation.” The hospital said
President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
Customs officers made a startling discovery earlier this year while inspecting a package on its way to a Monterey Park apartment: three highly venomous king cobra snakes, each about 2 feet long, hidden in potato chip cans. On Tuesday, the alleged intended recipient — Rodrigo Franco, 34 — was arrested on a federal smuggling charge after a monthslong investigation that also involved the seizure of a young crocodile, three alligator snapping turtles and five diamond back terrapins, all of which are protected species, federal officials said. For months, according to federal court records, Franco used WhatsApp, a smartphone messaging platform,
Barbara Sinatra, the wife of late-singer Frank Sinatra, died Tuesday morning at her Rancho Mirage, California, home, a family spokesman told Fox News. She was 90. The Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center director John Thoresen told Fox News Sinatra died of natural causes, and she was "comfortably surrounded by family and friends" at the time of her death. Born Barbara Blakeley, the Bosworth, Missouri, native began her modeling career at 18 after her family moved to Long Beach, California. Shortly after her move, she married Robert Oliver, but they divorced, and she then married Zeppo Marx in 1959. After she and
Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book will double down on Russia’s interference and James Comey’s involvement in her stunning election defeat, according to sources familiar with the memoir. Privately, Clinton has told friends and longtime associates that she “wants the whole story out there” as she rushes to tweak and put the finishing touches on the book due out in September. “She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no uncertain terms,” one longtime ally said. “She wants the whole story out there from her own perspective. I think a lot of people are going to be
Efforts by Republican lawmakers to repeal the Affordable Care Act in recent months have repeatedly collapsed after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) scored the various bills using a closely guarded analytic process done entirely behind closed doors. As Republicans released proposed legislation, the CBO announced its views about its effect on the federal budget and how it would affect the number of people without health insurance but didn’t provide a clear account of how those numbers were reached. The lack of transparency about the basis for the CBO’s findings makes it difficult for either experts or the broader public to
President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets Wednesday morning saying that transgender people wouldn´t be allowed to serve in the U.S. military ´in any capacity.´ Trump fired off the tweets without warning, injecting a contentious social issue into the debate on a day after the Senate GOP´s health care bill suffered a bad defeat and when a Senate panel was set to hold a public hearing that would touch on Russian foreign nationals´ influence efforts. ´After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow.. transgender individuals
The top two Democrats on the House Ethics Committee appear to be compromised when it comes to the panel’s probe of House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Breitbart News has learned. Evidence demonstrating a preconceived bias against Nunes—from before the onset of an official investigation—has clouded the supposed impartiality of Reps. Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Yvette Clark (D-NY). Both of their offices have refused, when contacted by Breitbart News, to answer whether the members will recuse themselves from the investigation. Earlier this year, Nunes recused himself from the House Intelligence Committee’s probe of alleged Russian interference in the
On the very same day President Trump hammered Sessions for being weak on leaks, the Attorney General is set to announce a major report on them. (Photo) The Hill reports: Attorney General Jeff Sessions will reportedly make an announcement about several criminal leak investigations within days. Officials told The Washington Post about the forthcoming news from the Justice Department. The investigations will be centered around news reports containing sensitive material about intelligence, the report said. The news comes as newly-appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci publicly decried leaks coming from within the West Wing in his first week on
A strict D.C. gun law that prevents most firearms owners from carrying concealed handguns in public in the nation’s capital is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court panel ruled Tuesday, saying the city government cannot demand citizens prove a “good reason” before being issued permits. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ordered lower courts to issue permanent injunctions blocking enforcement of the law. City officials said they are considering an appeal, but gun rights supporters said the ruling is a major step and could set up an even bigger victory should the U.S. Supreme
The House Intelligence Committee met with former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, according to a report Tuesday. It was already known that Jared Kushner, top adviser and son-in-law to President Trump, on Tuesday spoke with members of the panel, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign. CNN´s Manu Raju tweeted Tuesday evening that the network´s chief political analyst Gloria Borger had learned that Rhodes also spoke to the committee. (Tweet) The Intelligence Committee is also investigating intelligence leaks, and Rhodes has become a person of interest for certain Republicans
Tucker Carlson says he’s not going to stop asking Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) how she became one of the richest members of Congress – even if she keeps calling him “racist.” Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Host Carlson lashed out at Waters for claiming he was “racist” for asking “Where did the money come from?” In particular, Carlson questioned how Waters, who represents one of the poorest districts in California, lives in a $4.3 million home. "We´re not alleging wrongdoing here, but really, how did this happen?" he asked. And, even if she keeps making accusations of racism, “We’re going
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said Monday that it isn’t congressional Republicans’ role to defend President Trump from the investigations into Russian election interference and pushed back against the notion that special counsel Robert Mueller is biased against the president. The comments from Ryan came a day after Trump tweeted that “it’s very sad that Republicans…do very little to protect their president.” (Snip) The radio host Jay Weber mentioned the Democratic donors hired, and in his response Ryan said, “Bob Mueller is a Republican who was appointed by a Republican.” The House Speaker added, “I don’t think many people
New research shows that ancient humans had sex with non human species. According to a study conducted by Omer Gokcumen, an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Buffalo, ancient humans had intercourse with a "ghost species" of "proto human". Gokcumen explains that humans are only one member of a broader species named "hominins". The research found that humans had sex with other members of the hominins group.
President Trump and his advisers are floating possible replacements for Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and the list includes Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), The Washington Post reports.Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) are reportedly among the candidates Trump’s team is considering to replace Sessions, though Giuliani said earlier in the day that he´s not being considered. Trump has repeatedly said that he is disappointed by Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the probe into ties between the Trump administration and Russia, saying in an interview last week that he would have never hired Sessions if he knew
Former House Speaker John Boehner said at an event in Las Vegas last week that he used to “sneak into” the White House to see President Barack Obama to avoid scrutiny from the “right-wing press,” according to a report by the Washington Post, which obtained a videotape of Boehner’s remarks. Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used
When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do
BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Attorney General Eric Holder and Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts. Turnout among African Americans in the 2016 presidential election was the smallest in 20 years. It’s a big concern as the NAACP holds its annual convention this week in Baltimore, its first major gathering since the election. Hilary Shelton, head of the NAACP’s
Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob
At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.
Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. (Snip) First it was reported that
Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily
President Trump´s recent comments undermining Attorney General Jeff Sessions came off as unprofessional to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who may depart his post sooner than expected, according to a report. Trump went after Sessions, his first congressional endorser and a longtime advisor, for having recused himself from oversight of the FBI´s Russia probe, speaking during a New York Times interview last week. ´I think is very unfair to the president,´ Trump said. ´It´s extremely unfair, and that´s a mild word, to the president,´ Trump said in reference to the nation´s top law enforcement officer. Several sources say the former Exxon CEO found
Former President Jimmy Carter predicted the U.S. will eventually transition to a government-run health care system while addressing his church congregation Sunday. “I think eventually we’ll have a single-payer system,” Carter said while speaking to a large crowd before teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., according to the Wall Street Journal. Carter’s comments come in the midst of ongoing GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare with more conservative legislation. The GOP has struggled to secure enough votes to pass the repeal and replace legislation as conservatives and moderates alike have found fault with
