Donna Brazile Trashed John McCain While He Was Alive; Now She’s His Biggest Fan

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/21/2019 7:04:18 AM

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

Maria Bartiromo, on Fox Business News this morning, said President Trump shouldn´t criticize McC because the guy is dead and everyone agreed. Except, in the clip they showed, President Trump did not criticize McC; he said he didn´t like him. We stopped watching Fox News years ago and switched to FBN, instead. I hope that isn´t the beginning of the end of the last decent news source for us.

While MC was in Hanoi his wife minded 3 kids and kept attention on the plight of POWs. Once home he ditched her for Ms. Bud. He kept himself on the Sunday TV shows by constantly speaking against GOP positions. Of course the enemedia loved it. Then he famously rose from the hospital bed traveled to dc and gave the thumbs down to save to save Obama care. John was relected opposing Obamacare. But could not pass an opportunity to backstab Trump. When John Got older and began takin Viagra what happened in the bedroom is not known, but sources in DC report John grew 2´ inches taller.

Apparently it was Donna´s Big Day at FOX. I also heard she would be a "guest" on Hannity. I would bet Hannity was not happy about being forced to have her on. Trump was right that McCain ran his Race for President on getting rid of Obamacare, then when Trump beat him, he was the deciding vote to KEEP Obamacare. No wonder Trump thinks he´s a mean, nasty man. He was one!

The left loved McSlime when he was “the maverick of the senate” and stabbing Republicans in the back. But once he ran for president their knives came out for him. Now that he’s dead and can be used against the Republicans again, they love him.

I caught a few minutes of Donna Brazile on Bret Baier´s panel yesterday. I was stunned at how stupid she sounded. She was just a robot reciting Democrat talking points. I´ve kind of liked her in the past because she used to talk like an actual person. But if this is what she´ll be on Fox, it´s dead. I´m not going to waste my time and I´m sure other people feel the same. Bret Baier must have been sweating at what he has done.

Democrats rewrite their personal history and political stances all the time.

They even claim that in the 60´s, they switched from being the Party of Pro-Segregation and Racism to be heroes of Minorities. And that Republicans took their place in this regard.

Pretty Soviet of them.

I was disappointed with Brazil last night and will avoid her next time. I expected a rational response from an intelligent Democrat to enhance a balanced discussion. She had only tired liberal talking points that turn us all off completely. Do liberals have any rational ideas? Apparently not.

I agree with Maria Bartiromo.

What what I heard via talk radio, the bad blood between McCain and President Trump goes back to a large NYC piece of land Trump wanted to acquire back in the 80´s that needed a government subsidy and was thwarted by Jerry Nadler and John McCain.

I am so APPALLED that Fox has hired Brazil full time!!!! Having her on air as an opposing view is no problem, but full time: THIS IS A WOMAN WHOSE ETHICS ALLOWED HER TO FEED HILLARY CLINTON DEBATE QUESTIONS prior to the debates. I know Laughlin Murdoch and his wife et al. want to ingratiate themselves with the Left, but the word is FAIR and balanced, that that means no crooks as hires.

Donna Brazile is one angry black woman. She will add nothing to FOX except drive viewers away.

She has this know-it-all and condescending attitude that says I am way smarter than you.

Unless Disney demanded more white-hating black people...I see no upside to this move at all.

McCain sent his flu kid David Kramer to London to meet with Steele, obtained the Dossier, took one personally to bad cop James Comey, and then David Kramer distributed 14 copies to media outlets. All this happened AFTER Donald Trump the Great had been elected President. McCain was a small, mean man. I am not surprised he grew two inches taller in his old age.

My regret is having voted for and donated generously to McCain and Romney. Thank God for Donaldus Maximus.

Let´s see: judge Jeanine is suspended for telling the truth; Donna Brazil, a known liar who fed questions to HRC during the presidential race, is hired.

Hannity is forced to put her on; Bret Bair welcomes her with open arms.

When the discussion turned to Trump´s economic success, Brazil claims it got started thanks to BHO.

I scream at the TV, mute the liar, and write an email to Fox corporate in NYC expressing my dismay over what´s happening at Fox.

Fair? No. Balanced? No. And unafraid of losing viewers and ratings?

No. Not a chance.

BTW, think Fox and Bret are angling to get a shot at hosting a 2020 Democrat primary debate?

Oh yeah!

To me, Fox is like that wonderful marriage you entered into. It was great for a while and then things began to slowly go downhill. I suspected a mistress and my thoughts became a truth I was confronted with. I have divorced from that marriage and am now looking around for a replacement.
For now, I am dating Fox Business Network.
But I am keeping my options opens. It has become difficult for me to ´trust´ again.

One more comment, and now I am understanding why I am more and more disappointed with politics. It is about who likes you or not. Government, along with their policies and practices, have become so ambiguous that I am so glad for two foundations in my life. They are: our founding fathers knew what they were doing but most of all, God is my Rock.

After Brazile was caught feeding the CNN debate questions to Hillary, she shouldn´t be working anywhere. I´ll bet that any mention of this of by Fox employees is strictly forbidden.

She also had a very strange and remorseful reaction to Seth Rich´s murder. She knows that it was Rich, not Russian hackers, who downloaded the DNC data that was given to Wikileaks. She knows that Rich paid the price.

If entities think they must have affirmative action hires for diversity´sake why not pick some one with at least a modicum of common sense - both brazile and Juan Williams are total airheads who add nothing to a discussion. And, by the way, why is Williams still employed - he was made to apologize verbally and in writing for sexual harassment while at the Washington Post?

If McCain was as popular as the media wants us to believe he would have been president. Let’s not forget McCain trashed W Bush for 8 years every Sunday on the talk shows. McCain said he couldn’t get people to his rallies until he he selected Palin as his VP...then 200 democrat lawyers went into Alaska to find dirt, found none so they made stuff up.

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,

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.

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

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.

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

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
