John McCain says he hopes
to revive immigration reform
upon return to Congress

Washington Examiner, by Josh Siegel

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/4/2017 9:24:51 AM

Sen. John McCain wants to revive his preferred method of immigration reform when he returns to Congress after being treated for brain cancer. Before leaving Washington for more treatment, McCain, R-Ariz., told The Arizona Republic that he spoke with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., about tackling immigration reform. (Snip) "Immigration reform is one of the issues I´d like to see resolved," McCain told the Arizona Republic in an interview published Thursday. "I´ve got to talk to him (Schumer) about when would be the best time. I think there are all kinds of deals to be made out there. I really

Comments:
Oh joy. That traitor will regroup that evil gang of eight to further attack Trump. I think he is delusional if he thinks he is going to maintain a normal life after his recent diagnosis. He should resign and spend time with his family. After my brother-in-law had surgery for a glioblastoma things went downhill quickly. McCain will NOT be able to function normally both mentally and physically. You have to wonder how much he will withhold from the public (that is not obvious) just so he can stay in power.

McCain´s recent grandstanding vote on repeal of Obamacare did not endear him to many of his colleagues. Does he really expect to get the support of those colleagues now?

McCain just can´t seem to get out of the way of the country´s ability to survive without being over run. I know, I know he is a veteran and a hero and suffered for the country, but does not make it his to destroy.

If your favorite Uncle Eddie (the nicest guy in the world) were to become psychotic and meniacle, he would have to be sidelined before he could hurt someone, yes? Well I think this is the case here.

Pretty obvious McCain has become delusional. Perhaps he has always been , or perhaps it is due to his current malady. Whatever the cause he has totally missed the reality that the whole impetus of the illegal immigration debate has taken a 180 degree turn. Now, the majority of Americans want a wall, those already here deported, and even a reduction in the "entitled" who come to this nation legally. Resign John and etry to enjoy what little time you have left and leave the illegal immigration issue for the grownups to handle.

Trump is more about competence and loyalty than strict ideology. If you are good enough the competence will/should get you to the truth, and that should overcome blind adherence. Be principled(which I think competence covers), and we´ll support you to the end.

I tremendously respect what John McCain the naval aviator went through in Vietnam.

I despise what John McCain the Senator has done in the US Senate.

John, you REALLY should have been in the Democrat party. You joined with them, time after time, to oppose what President George W. Bush was trying to do to make our country better.

Is it just that you are addicted to the ´fawning media spotlight´ that you received when you joined the ´Rats to oppose President Bush?

Did you not learn when you ran for President that the media do not give a flying ´F´ about you, they only want to advance the Leftist agenda?

Was it really worth condemning the country to more Obamacare to get just a couple days more fawning media coverage for yourself?

John.... please.... it´s time to retire.

I lost a friend years ago to brain cancer. He was fine, we went shooting and flying several times while he was being treated. He was a good pilot and shot well right up until a few weeks before he died.

Not wishing ill on McCain, but this is not likely something that he will get over.

Al Franken appears to be that rarest of senators — one who doesn’t see himself as president. Instead Mr. Franken, a comic-turned-politician, is angling to be a voice of the progressive movement and to ascend the halls of power on the other end of Pennsylvania Ave. at the Capitol. “He isn’t running for president, but he is running to be one of the dominant progressive voices in D.C. — vying with [Sens.

NEW YORK — America´s reality TV president has made America face its reality, on TV.

Russ Feingold wrote in a column published Saturday. "In the wake of last weekend´s horror and tragedy, let us finally, finally rip off the veneer that Trump´s affinity for white supremacy is distinct from the Republican agenda of voter suppression, renewed mass incarceration and the expulsion of immigrants."

According to a report from college football blog Outkick the Coverage, ESPN pulled college football announcer Robert Lee game between William and Mary and the University of Virginia because they were concerned students and viewers might be offended by his name. Lee, who is Asian-American, and who is likely not named after the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee, is one of ESPNU´s biggest names, and, for the record, did not fight in the American Civil War, because he wasn´t alive in 1861 (though he is nicknamed, "the General").

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration.

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
