John McCain revealed his doctors gave him a ´very poor prognosis´ when he first found out about the rare and aggressive brain cancer that he continues to battle. The Arizona senator said his doctors told him at the time that his condition was ´very, very serious´. ´So I just said, "I understand." Now we´re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived,´ McCain said during an interview on 60 Minutes, that aired Sunday night. McCain underwent surgery in July
I really, really wish I could feel anything but total and complete disgust for this man.
I really do wish that.
Cancer is a horrible way to die. But the way he is single-handedly trying to help the Demon-RATs destroy this country with the time he has left just makes me not feel any real compassion or empathy for him.
But that is the effect of evil on us all. And this is sadly a very evil world right now.
If he is doing that horribly, he needs to retire immediately and spend the time he has left with his loved ones. Then the governor of Arizona can appoint someone to replace him in time to defund PP next week.
This weekend, we learned a family member has in inoperable brain tumor. She had headaches and a few symptoms that were diagnosed during a trip to the ER Saturday. She may only have a few weeks left. Maybe Sen. McCain should spend his remaining time with his.family.
It would be interesting to hear from qualified doctors as to how such a serious medical condition will affect the Senator´s ability to reason as the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and as he approaches his other Senate responsibilities?
It´s pretty much good common sense that such a person should retire and spend as much time as possible with his family. His wife sure seemed concerned in the photograph.
I saw this last night. He came off as a petty and bitter man, despite what he says. Does he really think he deserves and apology from Trump? A real man would have admitted that getting shot down was not heroic. That doesn´t mean he didn´t suffer for his country or do it dishonor. But he was a survivor, not a hero. Bottom line: He is jealous that Trump is President and he isn´t.
Ther is nothing that can be done. His demise is all that is left for him. I pray McLie has a pain free and merciful death. I pray the agony of his dying is short and not prolonged. I pray that his suffering will soon end. I pray that he can spend quality time with his loved ones in the peace and comfort at home. May God have mercy on John McLie in this the hours of his death.
Jeremiah Denton was a war hero who was also a POW during the Vietnam War, he never used that to further himself. He was also a Senator from Alabama who spent time in the Senate did his best and left. Adm. Denton is know for
"...alerting the U.S. military to conditions as POW when he blinked "torture" in Morse code during 1966 TV interview"
I wish him the best, but he should be forced to undergo this illness while stuck with the same insurance system, the ACA, that he has damned the rest of us to. Repeatedly. He´s been treated, so the next step would be to take a pain pill, and go home and wait.....
Somebody remind this man that the nation´s top cancer hospitals like MD Anderson Cancer Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering do NOT accept Obamacare. The service he can do to this country is by repealing this boondoggle of Obamacare so that others with cancer can access these hospitals.
Fading out of life with grace and dignity surrounded by those who love him ceased to be an option for the bitter maverick long ago.
All McCain has left is his love affair with the camera and lime light and the sycophant media who ONLY love having him as a foil for every true Conservative there is left in this nation and no other reason.
I wonder how many actual tears these media parasites will shed on his final passing on. My guess would be not many. The blood sucking ticks will simply move on to the next dog like any good parasite would.
I´ve said this before. Apparently his illness is affecting his judgement and actions. Isn´t there something that can be done to retire him. I have ceased feeling sorry for someone that is so selfish that they leave a trail of destruction on their way out.
Celebrate and thank him for his service and sacrifice to the country as a veteran. When the time comes we will mourn the loss and bury him with full military honors. Then we can celebrate the passing of a swamp creature and the new opportunity to make America great again with a new Senator that will hopefully have Conservative values and will stand up for them.
A normal man would retire to concentrate on his treatment and spending what may be his final months with his family. But mcvain is so addicted to attention that he couldn´t possibly give that up. He loves the adulation of the establishment elite more than he loves his family.
Well, I will not dance on his grave when the time comes, but I won´t mourn his passing either.
If he had any decency, he would retire and spend his remaining time with his loved ones, instead of burnishing his "maverick" creds and undermining his colleagues. Whatever he is thinking, he is impaired.
If, God forbid, I had the diagnosis that Senator McCain has, I would quit and spend what time I had left with my family. I am sorry for Senator McCain, but it is time to step down. I can´t believe that he would cling to power so tightly.
McCain is sick but he was long before this last diagnosis. It would be classy to quit playing for sympathy and simply resign. He is addicted to press attention and the perks of power so he is not going to resign, however.
I wouldn´t wish ill health on anyone but I don´t have any respect for McCain. Yes, he served his Country and I appreciate that. But when does doing damaging things to the Country after your service begin to erase your initial contribution.
Just in dealing with BOCare alone, McCain has condemned millions of Americans to health care they can´t afford, reduced services, and a major destabilizing effect on a health care system that for 90% or more of us was working just fine. Why? Because McCain determined that the only acceptable way to build a replacement bill was to work with the dems, even when they made it crystal clear they would NOT work with Republicans on health care.
In essence, McCain set an impossible condition to fixing a horribly broken system that will now simply crash and burn with enormous amounts of uncertainty about health care. All to satisfy McCain´s egocentric demands.
That is a betrayal of your fellow citizens Mr. McCain and it offsets any honor brought to you by your service in the military.
I hope John McCain has a peaceful and gracious end of life but I won´t miss his actions and effect in the Senate.
I have experience with this type of cancer due to a family member. I also met others with this type of brain cancer at support groups. There is no cure. Further treatment will be of no help. He will continue with diminished logic and function. Depending on the location of the tumor, various loss of functions will occur. One location can cause blindness and loss of speech, another can cause inability to walk and use limbs. Sleep will come more and more and eventually a coma. It is a vicious disease and I am sure the family was made aware there is nothing more that can be done and he does not have much time left. We were told by the doctors. It is terrible to helplessly watch your loved one die. He is not able to make sound decisions even if he thinks so. Why he would hang on and not step aside to spend the time left with family, I do not know. Take it from someone who has seen it first hand, it is an awful way to go.
Yes I am that bitter. Watching this hypocrite break all his campaign promises to repeal Obamacare and instead force his countrymen (though not of course himself) onto third world hell hole socialized medicine has made me so.
To all of those struggling with cancer or by the side of someone going through that valley, a different cancer, but aggressive, i outstretch my arms. We, too, are dealing with this nasty, hideous disease.
Mr. McCain ought to do the noble thing and go home to be with his family for the remaining days of his life.
I am not sorry for him one bit, he will not pass soon enough for my liking. McPain will leave the Senate much worse for him having been there:
1. He is a self-severing bigot, 2. He is a RINO, 3. He votes with the Demorats, 4. He was one of the worst Naval Pilots in Vietnam, 5. No legacy in all his years in the Senate, 6. He is vindictive, the worse kind of swamp critter, 7. He is no friend of WTP, 8. Refuses to leave the Senate, even with his impaired judgement. 9. Many more horrible attribute that I have forgotten.
After my cancer diagnosis, being vindictive was the last thing on my mind. I concentrated on the things that really matter in life.
Having said that, perhaps for McCain, being a vindictive sell out is what is important to him. He´s apparently made it his personal goal to obstruct Trump and conservatives so long as he has breath in his body.
Considering his behavior over these past few years, his contempt for anyone that doesn´t agree with him and especially his behavior since Trump won the nomination, I am actually glad that he DIDN´T win the presidency in 2008.
Sorry, you dont get a lifelong pass just for being a "war hero". Just ask John Kerry.
The FBI found 2,800 documents on Anthony Weiner´s personal laptop related to his estranged wife Huma Abedin´s work as deputy chief of staff for Hillary Clinton when she served as secretary of state, according to a new report. The State Department on Tuesday informed Judicial Watch that it received those 2,800 documents from the FBI following the conservative watchdog´s lawsuit against State over its failure to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
The Jacksonville Jaguars have issued an apology to a local veterans group for the team´s peaceful protest in London last month. Nearly all of the Jaguars players and owner Shad Khan locked arms during the national anthem on September 24, prior to a game against the Baltimore Ravens, while around a dozen or so players took a knee to protest inequality and police violence against minorities. Jaguars President Mark Lamping addressed the apology letter to Jacksonville´s director of military affairs and veterans department Bill Spann, saying the team was ´remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem
THIS IS A STUNNING DEVELOPMENT———————Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin, says a report by The Hill. Who was right in the middle of it all? HILLARY CLINTON.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday at a joint press conference with President Trump said his country´s relationship with the U.S. is perhaps at its "best" since World War II, despite once predicting a Trump presidency would be "evil." Tsipras said the relationship between the U.S. and Greece is thriving, as Greece comes out of an economic crisis and begins to attract investments and increase trade, thanks in part to the U.S. But Tsipras, asked head on what he thinks of Mr. Trump now, after casting his presidency in such a negative light last year, said he and Mr.
President Trump said Tuesday that he has narrowed the search for the next Federal Reserve chairman down to five candidates, all of whom are viable nominees. "Honestly, I like ´em all," Trump said of the five potential central bankers, speaking at a press conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the White House. "I´ll make a decision over the next very short period of time," Trump said. One of the five candidates is current Chairwoman Janet Yellen, whose term expires at the end of January. Trump reportedly also met with Stanford economist John Taylor, an advocate of rules-based monetary
A-list Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon revealed, in a speech to Elle Magazine´s Women in Hollywood Monday night, that she was sexually assaulted by a director at age 16 — and then forced to stay silent as a condition of employment. Witherspoon dedicated her remarks to the women who have come forward to accuse Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape, telling the crowd of her "guilt" for not speaking up about her own horrific encounters. "This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world, and a lot of
New evidence has emerged to confirm Peter Schweizer’s account in his bestselling book Clinton Cash about the corrupt tactics behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s approval of Russia’s purchase of 20 percent of U.S. uranium. Josh Solomon and Alison Spann report in The Hill: Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government
Former President Barack Obama did not personally call Gen. John Kelly, a Marine General who had commanded a multinational force in Iraq, when his son got killed in action in Afghanistan, according to an administration source. The source responded to an inquiry from DailyMail.com about Kelly after President Donald Trump raised a question about it in an interview on Brian Kilmeade´s radio show on Fox Tuesday. Trump the previous day had caused a flap by claiming his predecessors ´didn´t make calls´ to families of the fallen. Trump´s initial comments drew an angry response from prior White House officials who said

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a warning shot after Republican Sen. John McCain questioned "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in America´s foreign policy, saying "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back." McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5½ years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: "I have faced tougher adversaries." Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington, "I´m being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won´t be pretty." He bemoaned McCain´s decisive
Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal. The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV´s This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC´s Graham Norton Show. Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that
New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions.

Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country.

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said in a radio interview on Sunday that Democrats can lose to President Donald Trump in 2020 if they "overdo it" by becoming too liberal. Durbin was asked on a local Chicago radio program about comments from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), who warned fellow Democrats that Trump would be reelected if the party becomes too liberal. CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski was first to report on Durbin´s comments. (Audio) "We need to be balanced," Durbin said on "Connected to Chicago" on WLS-AM. "She´s right about that.
