    In January, two US Navy high speed Riverine boats were apparently underway from Bahrain to Kuwait when they strayed into Iranian waters, while attempting to contact a vessel to refuel. The Pentagon first said that they had engine trouble. Yet, if that was the case, why didnt the other boat tow the boat with mechanical problems to international waters and safety? Then, the Pentagon said that they had navigational issues. How is this possible in 2016, with each boat having an array of GPS and radar equipment? Even if one boats systems completely shut down, couldnt they rely on the...
  • Meghan McCain: Carly Fiorina is great because she warms up Ted Cruz

    Fox News host Meghan McCain argued on Thursday that GOP hopeful Ted Cruz had been smart to choose Carly Fiorina as his runningmate because she warms up the Texas senator. I love Carly Fiorina, McCain explained on the Thursday edition of Foxs Outnumbered. She has gone after Hillary Clinton the hardest. She rips out her jugular and serves it to me on a platter, which is what I want coming up in the election. What I like about Carly Fiorina is she warms up Ted Cruz, she continued.

    Senator John McCain will not attend the GOP’s convention this summer. Instead he plans to use the time to campaign for reelection. Politico reports: “I have to campaign for reelection, and I have always done that when I’m up,” McCain said. “We have a late primary in Arizona.”Though the GOP convention is scheduled for July 18-21, the Arizona lawmaker also faces an Aug. 30 primary against state Sen. Kelli Ward and business owner Alex Meluskey. McCain’s real problem is his likely Democratic opponent Ann Kirkpatrick. Though polling is sparse, the RCP average suggests the head-to-head match-up is currently a...

    Phoenix, Arizona, April 15, 2016. Incumbent U.S. Senator John McCain is locked in a dead heat with Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick as both receive 42 percent of a test vote taken statewide in April. This leaves only 16 percent undecided as of the time of this survey, compared to 25 percent in January. It also appears that at least one traditional voting pattern is changing in Arizona. For many years, rural voters have tended to lean Republican in most races, but in 2016 Kirkpatrick is outpolling McCain by 43 to 39 percent in the states rural counties in a modest but...

The media is describing the issue as centering around those elected politicians who may want to avoid the potential for divisive controversy. However, if you look at the actual landscape, and then look at the political ideology of those who are openly saying they are staying away, what you’ll notice is the RINO caucus, the ‘Decepticons’, are the most cautious.

Though he represents one of the most-conservative states in the union in the Senate, McCain consistently works against conservative issues.

A task force housed within the Republican National Committee will orchestrate attack ads, petitions and media outreach to bolster a strategy that Senate Republicans adopted as soon as Justice Antonin Scalia died last month: refusing to consider an Obama nominee out of hopes that the next president will be a Republican.

    Sen. John McCain said Friday that he was not endorsing anyone for the Republican presidential nomination because "Lindsey Graham was my man." "I'm staying out of this," the Arizona senator and 2008 GOP presidential candidate, told Neil Cavuto on Fox News. Graham, the South Carolina senator, dropped out of the race in December. Asked again about an endorsement, McCain responded: "No, I'm not going to. I like too many of them, to be honest with you." McCain was questioned about his endorsement because New Hampshire holds its primaries on Tueday. The senator won primary races in the Granite State in...

    The anti-Trump super-PAC that spent more than $2 million slamming the billionaire in Iowa is preparing to launch a new secret weapon in New Hampshire -- John McCain. "Probably the only significant strategy shift is we are going to remind voters in New Hampshire about the disgraceful things that he said about John McCain," said the leader of Our Principles PAC, Katie Packer, who was Mitt Romney's deputy campaign manager in 2012. Trump offended many Republicans when he mocked McCain's Vietnam War service last July, saying "he was a war hero because he was captured. ... I like people who...

    Things aren’t looking good for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), as leaked data from two polls shows his 33-year congressional tenure may not survive the 2016 election cycle. "Senator McCain's key fundamentals are all very poor," reads a polling memo leaked from an anonymous pollster in the Grand Canyon State. "His ballot, his image, his job approval and his hard re-elect all suggest that he is an incredibly vulnerable incumbent as we head into 2016." A memo regarding accompanying polling data gathered between January 56 explains McCain's weaknesses in detail, referring to majority negative opinions on both job approval and personal...

    Sen. John McCain, the man who in 2008 put losing like a gentleman above doing what was necessary to keep then-Senator WrightAyersRezkoPleger out of the White House, appeared on CNN Wednesday with a fistful of red herrings designed to seek favor with his friends in the media by “othering” Donald Trump as a threat to all that holy and virtuous in America. Speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, McCain once again proved that he had what it took to defeat  Barack Obama but that he’d prefer to save his blistering rhetoric for his fellow  Republicans. McCain also proved that he knows...

    Senior Pentagon officials on Wednesday sought to defend the use of Russian-made rocket engines to send U.S. military satellites into space, telling exasperated lawmakers they are moving quickly to end the practice and rely on American-made rockets for the launches. But Air Force Secretary Deborah James and Pentagon acquisition chief Frank Kendall failed to stem sharp criticism from several members of the Senate Armed Services Committee who view Russia as the chief geopolitical threat to the United States. Led by the committee chairman, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., they said using the Russian engines enriches President Vladimir Putin's inner circle and...

    Sen. John McCain declined on Wednesday to criticize Sarah Palin, his former running mate, for endorsing Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. "I respect her view," McCain (R-Ariz.) told reporters in the Senate on Wednesday, a day after Palin endorsed the man with whom he has had a bitter feud. "I have great affection and appreciation for her," he said. "I respect what she does." Palin's decision isn't affecting his own thinking about the race, McCain added. "I'm not considering anyone," he said. "I've got my own race to run." McCain had previously endorsed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of his...
