Original Article

Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain responded to President Donald Trump’s ongoing criticisms of late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). McCain said, “I think if I had told my dad seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter, he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well. Do not feel bad for me and my family. We are blessed.” “We are a family of privilege,” she continued. “Feel bad for people out there who are

McCain´s vote in support of Obama-care and his connection to that phony dossier will be a significant part of his legacy.

There is nothing that Meghan can do to change this.

Someday, I hope to dump a box of screws on McCain´s grave.

McCain was disloyal to Trump and is paying the price. He was not a good person and likely is burning in hell.

McCain was a smart a** screw up in the navy. He caused the death of many service men with his antics. A hero? No. Anyone else, that did not have his family connections, would have been court martialed.

Wouldn´t it be grand one day to see the classified files of how this traitor really spent his time as a POW. Persistent rumors have him enjoying VIP treatment in hotels and being serviced by prostitutes, the Norks not being stupid enough to mistreat the son of a high government official.

I know it´s tough, Meghan, but both of your parents are crooks. No wonder mom didn´t fill dad´s seat. And, in case you don´t know we know, your father was convicted in a military tribunal of high treason and took the plea bargain of assisted suicide with a state funeral, instead of serving out his term obstructing Trump´s Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh´s confirmation. WWG1WGA! MAGA!

I find it sad and hilarious that poor stupid Meghan couldn´t see that her failure of a father was so destroyed by his jealousy of Trump getting elected when the glorious, heroic John McCain was rejected by the American voters.

And of course "glorious, heroic" are only the viewpoint from inside McCain´s dysfunctional head, although apparently Meghan is also convinced.

Projection, Meghan, projection.

Sad little girl really needs to stop digging.

Meghan honey..... No one cares about your dad. And if your dad was so loved, he would have been President. So if it consoles you to believe that Trump is jealous, while jettting around on AF1 and holding court in the Oval Office, when he isnt counting his billions, you just go ahead and believe what you want.

I dont care enough about you or your dad to mske any effort to dissuade you of your delusions.

Sure Meghan. Go ahead and tell yourself that. We put up with your dad´s behavior for years - even voted for him for POTUS. We even somewhat excused his final acts as if the consequence of a brain tumor. But we all know the truth. The ONLY thing we ever admired about your dad was that he survived being a POW.

She is grieving, and I suspect there are a lot more absent daddy issues than even she realizes. Her dad was not a model husband, father, citizen, Christian, or military man — anything but — and that’s got to be a hard truth to swallow. Let her be. Ignore her tantrums. And thank God that John McCain wasn’t your father.

Meghan, you have been going on and on about your dad v The President of the United States for some time now. I understand grief. Every poster here at Lucianne understands grief. We have all been there in some way or fashion.
I feel you need some grief counseling. As a Christian women, my advice to you would be to unburden yourself of this hate. It isn´t good for your health, mental or otherwise.
Seek comfort in Jesus´ love for you and the love of your husband and family. Until you do this you will never find peace.

They like the prostitutes peeing on Obama’s bed most. And the shameful way he treated Sarah Palin. Among so many other foul things. No love lost for papa McCain.

When Meghan was on America Now in the middle of the night, her favorite guest was Daddy and sometimes her mother. Clay Aiken is her BFF and was on all the time.

Daddy was a bitter spiteful man. Let the dead rest so you can go to Weight Watchers.

BTW Taxpayers weren´t keen on paying for the never ending funeral and your hateful remarks. We didn´t forget his first family or that your mother was addicted to drugs.

Yes, you are a family of privilege, as you mother inherited a fortune in the form of a beer distributorship, which bank rolled your father´s career - as did Alan Keating at one time.

Just because Trump doesn´t like your father, I´m sure there are many others who don´t either - the media hated him when he ran for President, if you recall - doesn´t mean Trump is jealous.

Your father is linked to the dossier scandal, and you may not like what you hear, but I suspect more is to come out.

I doubt Democrats will be too kind either if they see it´s necessary to remind people they only passed along what John McCain provided them.

Keating 5, USS Forrestal, Sarah Palin treatment, Repeal and Replace Legislation, Dirty Dossier. Those are the top 5 reasons why McCain was not noble. President Trump was a gentleman and a patriot when he generously permitted the state funeral and all the accoutrements. The McCains did not even thank him.

Meghan, honey, bless your poor little heart!!!

Donald Trump has nothing, and I do mean nothing, to be jealous of about your father. Your father ran for president and had his butt handed to him on a platter.

Donald Trump ran for president and won!!!!

Your father, in his insane jealousy of President Trump, tried to do everything he could to hurt him. But his hate and bile just drove him to his grave -- and straight to Hell -- all the sooner!!!!!

I know you are mourning your father, but stop writing really stupid and illogical things!!!! It just makes you look really, really pathetic!!!!!

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday misquoted a portion of President Donald Trump’s immigration speech and was quickly met with a fact-check by a Breitbart News reporter. Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

Every student taking the SAT will now be given an ´adversity score´ to level the playing field between people with different social and economic backgrounds, but critics say children of affluent parents could be penalized by the new system. The scoring system was established by the national College Board, the nonprofit which administers the test, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

China’s Holdings of U.S. Treasury Securities Hit 22-Month Low 10 replies

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

The question everybody wants to be answered is “whodunit,” i.e., which one of these two disgraced officials was responsible for elevating the fraudulent, smear-filled document into undeserved relevance.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible
Democrats Embrace Socialism:Are We
Headed Towards 'Atlas Shrugged'?

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
