    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 7-19-2015 | Jim Hoft
    Republican elites and the liberal media are piling on GOP front-runner Donald Trump today after his comments yesterday on Sen. John McCain. Trump attacked John McCain after the Arizona senator called Trump’s conservative supporters a bunch of crazies.Here is Trump’s full speech from yesterday. Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson defended Donald Trump today after the media onslaught over his comments on Saturday. Donald Trump appears to have gotten under the skin of not only Democrats, but also fellow Republicans and the news media. Has that subjected Trump, a Republican presidential candidate, to unfair and/or inaccurate reporting?An article in the Washington...

    The presidential race entered a critical three-day period in September when the economic crisis cast the candidates' differences in sharp relief. On Sept. 24, with financial markets verging on panic and the economy thudding, Democratic Sen. Barack Obama placed a call to rival John McCain. He wanted to suggest they issue a joint statement on proposed financial-bailout legislation. As hours went by without a return call, Obama aides emailed each other, asking, "Have you heard anything?" One answered: "The McCain camp is cooking up something." Later that day, Sen. McCain went before the cameras to say he was suspending his...

    Who is Joe the Plumber? He is Joe Wurzelbacher, an Ohio man looking to buy a plumbing business who came to symbolize the notion of "spreading the wealth" in Wednesday night's third and final presidential debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain. Earlier this week, when Wurzelbacher got a chance to speak with Obama when he visited Toledo, he told Obama that his tax plan would keep him from buying the business that currently employs him. Sensing an opening in the debate, McCain cited that exchange when the candidates were asked to explain why their economic plans are...

    Palin's visit sparked a colorful protest at the busy intersection of Federal Highway and Camino Real. Though the protest was led by supporters of Obama, it was nearly overtaken by dozens of McCain-Palin supporters. A last minute guest at the fundraiser was 11-year-old Rachel Petersen of Deerfield Beach, who was allowed to stay up past her bedtime last month to watch the Republican National Convention. She said she wrote Palin that she was happy she was running and sorry she couldn't vote for a few more years. On Monday afternoon, Rachel's dad, Don, was shopping when his cell phone rang....

    The most destructive issue against Obama is Jeremiah Wright. It is this issue that will ensure Obama defeat on November 4th 2008. The Reverend of hate, racism, and anti-Americanism is the most important factor that will cause 15% to 20% of the White democrats who voted for Kerry in 2004 to vote for John McCain and/or to simply stay home. These White democrats are mainly from the blue collar class and they concentrated in battleground states such as Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Minnesota, etc… These voters have had a problem voting for black person to begin with and for sure...

    How Liberal Trolls Are Working To Get McCain Elected President Posted by DJ Drummond Published: September 19, 2008 - 4:11 PM Yesterday, some of my Left-leaning readers (or hecklers, to call things by proper names) remarked that my piece was nothing more than a Right-Winger making a noisy point that I supported the Republican. It's true enough that I decided to vent a little bit, just call things as I saw them, kind of like a 'sun comes up in the East' kind of thing, saying 'Obama is not what he said he'd be', but as I pointed out, not...

    Gloom deepens as America’s debt piles up Irwin Stelzer: American Account The great clunking fist has struck again, or almost. This time it was aimed at the chin of John McCain, who just might be the next president of America. Fortunately, McCain has proved he can take such a blow, so his staff confined its reaction to polite enquiries of Britain’s ambassador, Sir Nigel Sheinwald, asking: “What the devil is the British prime minister doing endorsing the economic programme of Barack Obama?” Not that it much matters. The McCain team knows that Brown is largely responsible for the mess in...

    ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) -- Key evangelical leaders rallied to Sarah Palin's support Monday amid news that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, was having a child. Sarah Palin confirmed Monday that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant. "Before, they were excited about her, with the Down syndrome baby," conservative, anti-tax activist Grover Norquist said. "But now with this, they are over the moon. It reinforces the fact that this family lives its pro-life values." Palin and John McCain oppose abortion and have supported promoting abstinence in schools -- which would seem to make Bristol Palin's pregnancy an inconveniently timed development. But she...

    Chuck Todd has some advice for John McCain: embrace Ted Stevens' demise. The NBC News political director made his suggestion in the course of kibitzing McCain campaign strategy with Joe Scarborough on today's Morning Joe. CHUCK TODD: Joe, why isn't McCain jumping on this Ted Stevens thing? He hated Ted Stevens. JOE SCARBOROUGH: He did! TODD: He should be dancing on this guy's political grave today. This is the John McCain Republican party versus the Ted Stevens Republican party. And he ought to be, he ought to be gloating today. And he's not touched it. View video here.

    'Old friend' McCain chides China in Dalai Lama visit By Curtis Wackerle, Aspen Daily News Saturday, July 26, 2008 China must release all Tibetan political prisoners and account for the disappearance of protesters after last spring's uprising, Sen. John McCain said after meeting with the Dalai Lama on Friday. Next month's Beijing Olympics must be a time for China to demonstrate to the world its commitment to "basic human rights," said McCain, who called on China and Tibet to engage in a "meaningful dialogue on genuine autonomy for Tibet." McCain also referenced the disappearance of people after the conflict in...

    The real story of this year's money race? It's much more competitive than anyone expected. As always, Obama's army of 1.7 million donors provided his campaign with a larger individual pot than McCain's: $30 million for Chicago (according to the Wall Street Journal)* vs. $22 million for Crystal City. But thanks to those higher caps on party contributions, the vast majority of McCain's money--that is, another $26 million--went to the RNC. All told, the Republicans now boast a combined cash-on-hand total of $102.6 million, according to McCain campaign manager Rick Davis--$27 million from McCain and the remaining $75.6 million from...

    Dude. I'm totally having a flashback. And it is not particularly groovy. Boasting a new head honcho and a new economic message, John McCain today "reintroduced" himself to the American electorate with one-minute commercial set to air on national cable and in key swing states. Called "Summer of Love," the spot opens with stock late-Sixties footage of goateed protesters, flamboyant queens and nearly naked longhairs making out in a muddy field.

    John McCain says new plants can help solve the energy crisis and address climate change. It's not that simple. To power America's future, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) has an energy plan with a distinctly French accent. "The French are able to generate 80 percent of their electricity with nuclear power," the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee points out. "There's no reason why America shouldn't." In a mid-June speech, part of a continuing blitz on energy issues, McCain laid out his vision for 100 new nuclear plants -- 45 of them to be built by 2030. They would help meet America's energy...

    Tuesday, February 7, 2006 Sen. John McCain is at it again. The senior senator from Arizona has worked hard to earn an F-rating from Gun Owners of America. Once a presidential contender, Sen. McCain became the poster boy for the misnamed Americans for Gun Safety (AGS) several years ago and has sponsored several anti-gun bills and amendments. With such a record lurking in his closet, do you think Sen. McCain likes it when groups like Gun Owners of America point out his anti-gun antics?

    Washington ( - Recent U.S. Senate hearings into alleged global warming, chaired by Arizona Republican John McCain, were among the "most biased" that a noted climatologist has ever seen - "much less balanced than anything I saw in the Clinton administration," he said. Patrick J. Michaels is the author of a new book "Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Scientists, Politicians, and the Media." He is an environmental sciences professor at the University of Virginia who believes that claims of human-caused "global warming" are scientifically unfounded. Michaels spoke with CNSNews.comThursday following a panel discussion sponsored by the...

    Sen. John McCain blasted the Central Intelligence Agency on Sunday for its intelligence failures in the war on terror, adding that the nation's premier intelligence service has "in some ways" become a "rogue agency" that has betrayed President Bush. Commenting on reports that a shake up by newly installed director Porter Goss has prompted a wave of resignations of top CIA brass, McCain told ABC's "This Week": "This is a dysfunctional agency and in some ways a rogue agency. This is the agency that gave the president of the United States - when he asked for information about weapons of...

    John McCain's Meltdown Yesterday on Face the Nation--that venerable American institution that somehow manages to pull fewer eyeballs than reruns of Ronco informercials--Sen. John "McNasty" McCain (R-Ariz.) flipped out on the Federal Election Commission. As the Washington Times reports: The Federal Election Commission leadership is "corrupt" and should resign for refusing to regulate political groups that are spending millions of dollars to attack both presidential candidates, Sen. John McCain said yesterday. The Arizona Republican and co-author of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law called the FEC "disgraceful and despicable in its conduct" for allowing independent groups to exploit the Section...

    You wanted campaign finance reform. You got campaign finance reform. McCain-Feingold promised to take the money out of politics. If you believed that, you deserve what you got. And what you got is an avalanche of money into politics this year as George Soros, Democratic big shots and, to a lesser extent, Republican moneymen (Republicans are slower on the uptake) get into the business of "independent" political expenditures. All that McCain-Feingold did was make it impossible to make huge personal contributions to political parties. But if you have far more money than you can ever hope to spend, what to...

    Sens. John McCain and Kyoto-Joe Lieberman are pushing an amendment to the president's energy bill which is designed more to provide ammunition for Kyoto-Joe's presidential bid than to alter global temperature. Sen. McCain is helping, as is the Environmental Defense Fund. According to the New York Times, the Environmental Defense Fund is sponsoring a series of print and TV ads aimed at "putting the heat on Congress." EDF has taken more than $1.7 million in grants from the EPA and the Department of Energy in the last few years – both are agencies whose budget, staff and power would swell...
