  • Classy Bush Funeral Reminds Us of Just How Awful the McCain Family Is

    Whatever you might think of the Bush dynasty’s legacy, no one can ever accuse the family of not showing class and decency. And their sterling example of this, while saying goodbye to their beloved patriarch, has also served as an important reminder of just how awful the McCain family is.

    The shouting match between co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain that capped off Monday’s tribute to former President George H.W. Bush went unmentioned on Tuesday’s episode of The View. But the lingering tension between the two women was unmistakable. At one point during their discussion about the Mueller investigation, Behar noted that Donald Trump is “the only president who has his own TV channel in history,” adding, “Nixon didn't have it. So he has Fox News and Fox will just back him up.” When former Fox News host Abby Huntsman interrupted with, “I would be careful about that,” Behar said,...

    An internal memo from the Arizona Republican Party is shedding light on Rep. Martha McSally's narrow loss for the Senate this year. The memo, obtained by the Washington Post , lists a number of factors as contributing to McSally's loss, including ad spending, a brutal primary, name recognition and President Trump's popularity in Arizona.

    But Congressional aides said that less than 10 days after Mr. Zelaya was ousted, Mr. Noriega and Lanny J. Davis, a confidant of Mrs. Clinton and a lobbyist for a Honduran business council, organized a meeting for supporters of the de facto government with members of the Senate. Mr. Fisk, who attended the meeting, said he was stunned by the turnout. “I had never seen eight senators in one room to talk about Latin America in my entire career,” he said. As President Obama imposed increasingly tougher sanctions on Honduras, the lobbying intensified. The Cormac Group, run by a former...

    John McCain’s widow will “never get over” President Trump attacking her late husband’s record as a war hero because he was “captured,” she said Wednesday. “I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it to be honest but I’m the wife — that’s my prerogative — I don’t have to,” Cindy McCain, 64, said in an interview with the BBC. While on the 2016 campaign trail, Trump said McCain, who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down over Vietnam, was only considered a hero because he got captured. “I like people...

    It's very humbling to lose and I hope he learns from it," McCain, whose late husband, Sen. John McCain, sparred regularly with Trump, told CBS News. She said she hopes the midterm results will take Trump "back to basics." "I hope he learns from it and realizes that our country needs a strong leader and not a negative Nancy, if I can put it in such a basic term," she said. "We need our president. We need a White House that's strong, we need a White House that's not sparring with each other. And right now I think we're --...

    A group of protesters outside Ben Shapiro’s speaking event at Ohio State University chanted “John McCain’s dead” and “Reagan’s dead” in an apparent taunt aimed at the conservative commentator. The protests were shown in a video shared by Federalist editor Emily Jashinsky. Shapiro is a conservative commentator who has drawn protests and sparked controversy at several events where he has spoken. His event Tuesday at Ohio State was part of his ongoing campus tour, which is sponsored by conservative student group Young America’s Foundation. Outside the auditorium where the event was held, protesters also chanted “f--k Ben Shapiro,” according to...
  • How could Arizona elect someone like Kyrsten Sinema?

    American Thinker ^ | November 13, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    The election results for Arizona are in, and Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema has won, winning the seat held by outgoing Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. It's a puzzling result, not the least because the vote count took a week. In mitigation, there were far fewer warnings of fraud than we are currently seeing in Florida, and the delay was solely the result of 640,000 mail-in ballots that had yet to be counted. And, according to media reports, it's typical of Arizona to take a long time, so it wasn't that unusual. But there was some weirdness: How could 350,000 voters...

    Rep. Jason Lewis (R-Minn.), who lost his seat in last week’s midterm elections, is coming under fire for a Wall Street Journal op-ed in which he blames Republicans’ defeat at the ballot box on the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.). In the piece, titled “Who Lost the House? John McCain,” Lewis makes a novel argument: that McCain’s famous thumbs-down vote last year against a “skinny” repeal of the Affordable Care Act doomed Republicans by making it more difficult for them to counter Democratic claims that GOP lawmakers would do away with protections for those with preexisting conditions. The catch, of...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 11, 2018 | Jason Lewis
    The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare. House leadership had done an admirable job herding cats. On the second try, we passed the American Health Care Act in May. Then McCain’s inscrutable vote against the Senate’s “skinny repeal” killed the reform effort. McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a “green wave” of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan “gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” That line was the Democrats’ most potent attack in the midterms. It was...

    Two former aides to the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) are publicly criticizing the Republican Party for seeking to cast doubt on the results of the Senate race in Arizona, where Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is narrowly edging out Republican Martha McSally. The tweets by Mark Salter on Saturday and John Weaver on Sunday come amid ramped-up scrutiny of the race, in which Sinema leads by a little more than one percentage point.

    Cindy McCain, widow of the late Arizona Sen. John McCain (R), knocked her state's Republican Party on Thursday over GOP-led efforts to change the procedure by which the state counts mail-in ballots. In a tweet, the senator's wife took aim at local GOP groups who this week filed a lawsuit to force the state to stop calling voters to verify that they had mailed in a ballot in the case of ballots where names provided by voters are not immediately clear. "I am one of those mail in ballots. I was under the impression my vote was always counted," McCain...

    After the hosts complained President Trump hadn’t said enough to unify the country, an emotional McCain took it upon herself to apologize for “contributing to the polarization of the country” . . Her co-host Sunny Hostin applauded McCain for making that admission, while making a dig at President Trump. “It takes a big person to say what you just said. [applause] It does. It takes a person of great character to do that. I unfortunately don't know if this president has that kind of character,” she sighed.
  • AZ Sen: Democrat Kyrsten Sinema's Senate Bid Has Become A Total Train Wreck

    The Arizona Senate race is one that Democrats think they can pick up. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is unpopular; the latest crop of Republicans that have represented the state have disappointed conservatives and its trending blue. It’s going to be tight. Right now, Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema are duking it out. Sinema had a commanding lead, but the vicious fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh gave the GOP base a boost, plus the serial bad news from Sinema’s past activist history has turned her Senate run into something of a dumpster fire. There’s...

    There are 2 huge reasons why Judge Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh. The first, the fact that Donald Trump is POTUS, is obvious. The second, which is less remarked upon, is that John McCain is no longer a member of the U.S. Senate. We've all seen the impact McCain's departure has made on Lindsey Graham, but I think it has transformed the rest of the rest of the Republican Caucus as well. They no longer have the burden of a media darling, anti-Constitution, anti-conservative wrecker who monopolizes attention that can be devoted to achieving conservative goals. In Pat Buchanan's latest...
