´My prognosis is very poor´: John McCain
reveals he´s in ´very, very serious´
condition as he continues his battle against
brain cancer

Daily Mail (UK), by Keith Griffith

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/25/2017 12:30:17 PM

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´m sorry for him and his family. But he needs to step aside from his job and focus on what really matters.

It´s all about HIM...

He never has had a true love for this country it was all about what he could get!

There is a sound reason his fellow prisoners in the Hanoi Hilton named him ´Songbird´!

Being a VietNam vet myself I´m totally disgusted with this little man!

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.

Then Senator, step aside now and enjoy what time you have left with your family. Today so that the Governor can appoint someone who supports repeal.

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.

How special...glad you can get the "best doctors" while the rest of us scramble to find health insurance, doctors that will take it, huge co-pays and deductibles.

How ironic that through pique and animas towards Trump, McCain jumps out in front of the new repeal Obamacare bill to shoot it in the cradle!

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.

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.

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.....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

“A Christmas Story” airs around the clock during the holiday season and, believe it or not, the actors from the 1983 film are still getting royalty checks.“You’re going to be so disappointed,” Zack Ward, who played bully Scut Farkus in the classic film, told Page Six. “It’s basically about $1,800 every two years … and it comes in in Canadian money because we shot in Canada.” So what does the 47-year-old actor do with the extra cash?He told us he puts it in a special account just in case his mom needs it in the future.Ward, who was 13 years old

I´m approaching my 82nd birthday, and my daughter will occasionally suggest that modernity is perplexing to me because I´m from prehistoric times. As such, it points to one of the unavoidable problems of youth--namely, the temptation to think that today´s behavioral standards have always been. Let´s look at a few of the differences between yesteryear and today.?One of those differences is the treatment of women. There are awesome physical strength differences between men and women. To create and maintain civil relationships between the sexes is to drum into boys, starting from very young ages, that they are not to use

Jodie Foster reprised her Oscar-winning role as FBI agent Clarice Starling from the 1991 horror film The Silence of the Lambs for a skit on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show Friday night, in which she attempts to get information on possible collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia from an imprisoned Hannibal Lecter, played by Colbert.“You’re one of [Robert] Mueller’s, aren’t you?” Colbert asks Foster, referring to the Special Counsel investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. “Still hunting President Trump?” “We were golfing buddies once,” Colbert-as-Lecter continues. “We ate our caddie, turned him into a taco

MONTECITO, Calif.— Residents piled into cars and fled on Saturday as surging winds drove one of the biggest fires in California’s history toward the wealthy coastal enclave of Montecito, northwest of Los Angeles. The mandatory evacuations around Montecito and neighboring Summerland on the outskirts of Santa Barbara came as winds that had eased a day earlier roared back at around 30 mph (48 kph), with gusts to about 60 mph (97 kph). Firefighters stood by yellow fire trucks with hoses unspooled, ready to protect the historic San Ysidro Ranch as heavy smoke rose from the coastal hills, blotting out the blue

Trump wins on immigration, and that´s why

If an adult chosen at random were asked to name the biggest story of the week, odds are low that he’d say a Muslim immigrant terrorist set off a bomb in a New York subway station in an attempt to kill unknown numbers of innocent people. That’s because national news editors and TV producers decided that story wasn’t as important as a Republican´s election loss and endless commentary that imagined President Trump slut-shaming Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s words, not mine). Example: After Roy Moore’s defeat in Alabama, the New York Times immediately ran four op-eds and an editorial

Best known for their viral videos in support of the president, social media stars Lynnette "Diamond" Hardaway and Rochelle "Silk" Richardson ripped the left for "disrespecting" President Trump at every turn. Diamond & Silk said that since Inauguration Day, when several Democrats boycotted the ceremony and left-wing protesters rioted in the District of Columbia, Trump has not been shown the respect his office deserves. "[Trump] could be living the good life, but he decided to put that on the back burner," Silk said on "Fox & Friends Weekend." "If any of this [public disrespect] was going on [during the Obama

Democrats, who have a monopoly of power in California politics, are proposing to spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to illegal immigrants living in the state. Medi-Cal, which is the state’s Medicaid program, would eliminate legal residency requirements.The proposal was offered as part of a $4.3 billion proposal from San Francisco Democrat Assemblyman Phil Ting, the head of the Assembly budget committee. According to NBC Bay Area, 7% of people residing in California lack health coverage, many of them illegal immigrants. California has already eliminated legal residency requirements for Medicaid coverage for

A mother-of-three successfully delivered sextuplets this Monday less than a year after suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage. In just four minutes, Courtney and Eric Waldrop, 35, welcomed three boys and three girls to the world to join their three older sons, making them parents of nine. The sextuplets were born premature at 30 weeks old but doctors said the babies are all in good condition and will remain in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for several weeks. New pictures have been released of the days-old infants who range from two pounds four ounces to two pounds 14 ounces. The parents

Hillary Clinton’s seemingly endless book tour stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres show on Friday. Even for the liberal entertainer, the questions were over the top. DeGeneres turned to the woman who lost the 2016 election to wonder if Donald Trump can “last” four years as president. She also wistfully highlighted their 2016 plan to do a show from the Clinton White House. DeGeneres derided, “You´re just thinking, if this was a movie, people would go, ‘There is no way.’ And it just continues to go on. Do you think that he is really going to last four years?” Maybe Clinton

Friday afternoon, the FBI released a 29-page document containing Justice Department emails regarding the infamous meeting on the tarmac in Phoenix between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton just days before FBI Director James Comey gave his much-criticized announcement that he would not press for charges against Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her "extreme carelessness" in handling classified material.The emails, spanning from July 1-3, 2016, contain correspondence among various DOJ officials to the leaking of the impromptu 30-minute meeting between Lynch and Clinton that the AG insists was merely a personal chat about their grandchildren and recent travels,

Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly

There is strong circumstantial evidence that an insidious plot unprecedented in American history was hatched within the FBI and the Obama Justice Department to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. (Snip) Such a plot would show that partisans within the FBI and the Justice Department, driven by personal animus and a sense of political righteousness, surreptitiously conspired to subvert electoral democracy itself in our country. As of now, we have no proof beyond a reasonable doubt of such a plot. But we have very strong circumstantial evidence.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) suggested Thursday that Americans need to have more babies or risk a collapse of popular entitlements like Medicare and Social Security. “This is going to be the new economic challenge for America: people. Baby boomers are retiring — I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country,” Ryan, a father of three, told reporters as he riffed on how Republicans will tackle entitlement and welfare reform in 2018. “Baby boomers are retiring and we have fewer people following them in the workforce.

There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading

Female actresses attending this year’s Golden Globes ceremony are reportedly planning to wear only black in protest of the widening sexual abuse scandal that has engulfed Hollywood this year.According to E! News, the plan originally started with just a small group of women but gradually grew as other women wished to express solidarity. “So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” said ceremony host Jackie Oshry on The Morning Breath radio show. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices

Ryan Crocker, who has served as ambassador to several middle eastern countries joins the conversation.

Democrats hate her (#Tolerance)... Feminists despise her (#GlassCeiling)... Progressives want her silenced (#Diversity)... And the liberal media dreads her. Who is she? She’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In case you’ve been hiding under a freshly broken shard of glass from one of the ceilings being broken all over Washington D.C. lately - keep reading, it gets better. She’s the 3rd female to ever hold the office of the White House Press Secretary. - Dee Dee Myers was the first under Clinton (1993-1994) - Dana Perino was the 2nd who served under Bush in 2007 And it’s no surprise that Trump put her there because she’s perfect for the job.

I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.

Spurred by the multitude of sexual abuse scandals, top Hollywood executives have tapped Anita Hill to chair the newly formed Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. The commission made the announcement Friday following a meeting convened by Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Nike Foundation founder and co-chair Maria Eitel, Nina Shaw, and venture captialist Freada Kapor Klein. “The Commission will not seek just one solution, but a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and inter-related causes of the problems of parity and power,” said Kennedy.
