  • Trump’s Snub of McCain

    The New York Times ^ | August 14, 2018 | Peter Alkalay
    President Trump’s refusal to mention John McCain’s name as he was pontificating about the new military spending bill for 28 minutes reveals the inner Trump in a stark way. His inability to mention the senator’s name is a sign of his immaturity, insecurity, fear of competition, vindictiveness and delusional sense of self-importance. He is the quintessential petulant child. Debasing a war hero comes easy to him. Taking credit for a bill bearing Mr. McCain’s name also comes easy to him. He has no moral compass. He has no compass at all.

    Phil Mudd can go from 0-60 faster than a Ferrari. After a long, measured, discussion on CNN this morning about the firing of Peter Strzok [Mudd thought it was the right decision], co-host John Berman invited Mudd, a former CIA and FBI official, to comment on President Trump’s failure to mention John McCain during a signing ceremony of the defense authorization bill named in his honor. Mudd became immediately enraged, going off on this epic rant: “Are you kidding me? Let me get this straight. So the President has insulted everybody from former Presidents Bush and Obama, Rex Tillerson, Jeb...

    On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018. Included in the bill is a provision that would make U.S. Army surplus 1911 .45 ACP pistols available to the American public through the Civilian Marksmanship program (CMP). In November of 2015, then-President Obama signed the NDAA for Fiscal year 2016 into law with language that authorized the Secretary of Defense to transfer 1911s no longer in service to the CMP for public sale. That language made the transfers subject to the Secretary’s discretion and capped them at 10,000...

    The National Defense Authorization Act that US President Donald Trump signed today (August 13) at a signing ceremony at Fort Drum, NY includes almost 100 references to “Iran” in it. This illustrates the unprecedented tensions with Iran, but it also shows that Congress was diligent in weighing the current escalation with Tehran and the Iranian threat to the Middle East that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and others have articulated. The NDAA is named the “John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act” this year and honors Senator McCain. Here are all the important passages in the bill that you need...
  • The defense authorization bill is named after John McCain — but Trump didn't mention him

    CNN ^ | 8/13/18 | Betsy Klein
    President Trump just signed the National Defense Authorization Act, named after Arizona Sen. John McCain, but the President never once mentioned McCain's name or thanked him. “We would not be here for today’s signing ceremony without the dedicated efforts without the dedicated members of Congress who worked so hard to pass the National Defense Authorization Act,” said Trump while thanking service members and military leadership. However, he did mention Rep. Elise Stefanik, who spoke briefly and represents the district containing Fort Drum, as well as Don Baker, Dan Donovan, Joe Wilson, and Martha McSally.

    A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

    For the first time in 25 years, the International Republican Institute will have a new leader. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is battling brain cancer, has decided to step down from his role as chairman of the board of the organization, which for decades he has helped to fight for democracy, freedom, civil society, the rule of law and human rights around the world. McCain’s handoff to IRI’s next chairman, Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), is not a signal that McCain’s health is declining. In fact, several McCain associates say his condition hasn’t changed in recent months and he remains actively...

    Years of questions about how so many DC scandals never ended up with any accountability are now slowly beginning to make sense. Henry Kerner is a missing piece of a very frustrating puzzle… Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, we now find a name at the very heart of some of the most controversial investigative collapses in modern political history. The same John McCain staffer who told the IRS to weaponize their database to target Tea Party groups, was intimately involved in Fast-and-Furious, Benghazi, IRS and now -under the Trump administration- “Spygate”. If you wanted to control or cover-up...

    In a new wide-ranging magazine interview, Meghan McCain offered details of her relationship with her father, U.S. Sen. John McCain, and how she has coped in the year since his father's brain cancer diagnosis. McCain, a political commentator and co-host of ABC's "The View,' has used her perch to take on President Donald Trump for his repeated attacks on her father, as well his policies and rhetoric. She told Glamour magazine the devastating diagnosis has caused her to approach life as her father did: unafraid. "My father is the sun in my universe,' McCain, 33, told the magazine. "He's the...

    A strange piece of footage circulating online shows a nightmarish mystery creature that resembles some kind of horrifying cross between a rat and worm. The jaw-dropping video was taken by a British woman named Bex Deen who was aghast when she noticed the oddity seemingly slithering around on her backyard porch. She subsequently posted the footage online in the hopes that someone could identify the weird creature. For those who may be understandably afraid to watch the unsettling video, the footage shows a strange creature that appears to be about five inches long and sports a tail which is nearly...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain said Friday that she might not have married conservative pundit and Federalist publisher Ben Domenech nearly so quickly were it not for President Trump . On Friday's episode of the daily ABC program, McCain said that she had a "theory" that the rise of Trump led to her falling for Domenech, pointing to the night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland when Trump accepted the GOP nomination for president as a key moment in their relationship. “I have this theory because I got together with my husband very quickly, which I never do,” she...

    1 – Rob Goldstone, the English publicist and music manager, admitted that when he wrote Donald Trump Jr. to set up the meeting with a Russian attorney at Trump Tower he used deliberately hyperbolic language to ensure that the meeting took place. Goldstone further said that he believes the meeting was a “bait and switch” by a Russian lobbyist seeking a meeting on another matter by misleadingly claiming to be bringing the Trump campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton. 2 – All participants in the meeting who have spoken publicly say no Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton was discussed. 3 –...

    Worms frozen in permafrost for 42,000 years have come back to life and are eating Shane McGlaun - Jul 27, 2018 Scientists have made a discovery that is quite mind-blowing. Roundworms found in the permafrost in two areas of Siberia have come back to life in Petri dishes. These worms had been frozen in the permafrost for tens of thousands of years, since the Pleistocene age. Scientists working on the research say that 300 prehistoric worms were analyzed and that these two were shown to contain viable nematodes.The nematodes showed signs of life after being defrosted. Scientists say the worms...

    Is the “progressive” left finally ready to acknowledge the benefits of pro-growth tax reform? The intriguing possibility comes to us courtesy of the ABC television program, “The View.” That’s where Meghan McCain sparked a heated discussion this week by wisely warning about the miseries resulting from socialism. When program host Whoopi Goldberg raised the subject of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist selected by voters in the Democratic primary for a U.S. house seat in New York City, Ms. McCain helpfully noted that socialism has failed worldwide and is currently resulting in malnutrition and even starvation in Venezuela. This is not necessarily...

    Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona lashed out at President Donald Trump on Wednesday for Trump's recent comments about NATO's collective defense obligations. In an interview with Fox News on Tuesday evening, in response to a question by host Tucker Carlson, Trump echoed Carlson's concerns about whether the U.S. should defend a small country like Montenegro if it were to come under attack. McCain, who is known to be hawkish on Russia, accused Trump of toeing the Kremlin line. “The people of #Montenegro boldly withstood pressure from #Putin’s Russia to embrace democracy. The Senate voted 97-2 supporting its accession to...
