    Bob Dole encouraged fellow Republicans Saturday to back Donald Trump and suggested the presumptive GOP nominee select Newt Gingrich as his running mate. In an interview with CNN's Ana Cabrera, Dole -- the 1996 Republican nominee who said he spoke with Trump last week -- also suggested Trump apologize to Arizona Sen. John McCain and New Mexico Gov. Susanna Martinez for disparaging comments he's made about them in the past. "I have been a Republican all my life," said Dole, who endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at one point during the 2016 primary fight but has since backed Trump....

    Speaking in Washington, the former Republican presidential nominee pushed back at Trump’s criticism of Nato by praising the alliance’s response to 9/11 Senator John McCain, the former Republican presidential nominee, has taken a swipe at Donald Trump’s hostility to Nato by praising the alliance’s response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. “I agree with him to this extent, that our Nato allies should pay more and I’ve been urging all of that, all of us have, for years and years. But let’s not forget that after 9/11, the United States of America was attacked, Europeans weren’t attacked, and yet we invoked...

    Arizona GOP Senator John McCain’s reelection campaign is lashing out with negative attacks against his Republican primary opponent, State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward, as new polling shows trouble for McCain’s attempt for a sixth Senate term. A new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Dr. Ward and Senator McCain tied at 41 percent in a head-to-head matchup. The poll has even more bad news for McCain, showing the aging Senator with just a 35 percent approval among Republican primary voters. With such high negatives, it’s no surprise McCain’s campaign would shift from ignoring Ward to attacking her. Their goal,...

    PPP ^ | 5/17/16 | Tom Jensen
    PPP's new Arizona poll finds that John McCain has a negative approval rating with Republican primary voters, and is at pretty serious risk of losing nomination for another term. Only 35% of GOP voters approve of the job McCain is doing to 50% who disapprove. He's in particularly poor standing with conservative voters. Among 'somewhat conservative' voters his approval spread is 33/52, and among 'very conservative' voters it drops all the way down to 18/67.

    Pregnant, female, Navy SEALs was something many of us used to joke about as a way of exaggerating the absurd social engineering in the military. Yet, placing women in special operations and direct combat units has now become a reality under the Obama-led Pentagon. Sadly, not only have Republicans like John McCain refused to use their perches on the Armed Services Committees in the House and Senate to block this social engineering, they are now codifying it with a provision that could lead to a mandatory draft of all women. Earlier this week, I noted that the final House version...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham paused for five full seconds and stumbled over his words pondering the question: When is the last time he split with fellow Republican Sen. John McCain on a major issue? “I don’t know, let me think about it,” Graham (S.C.) finally said of his closest Senate friend. “There have been several. I just can’t recall right now, right off the top of my head.” Yet that’s what has happened in the wake of Donald Trump’s ascendancy to presumptive Republican nominee for president. In the Republican civil war over Trump, this is perhaps the most glaring example of...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, broke Sunday with GOP colleagues including ally Lindsey Graham by suggesting Republicans rally behind Donald Trump. "You have to listen to people that have chosen the nominee of our Republican Party," the Arizona senator and 2008 GOP nominee said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday. "I think it would be foolish to ignore them." McCain recently said privately that with Trump as the GOP's nominee, his re-election chances this year in Arizona are in danger. "This may be the race of my life," McCain said at an Arizona fundraiser in April.

    Sen. John McCain is chastising GOP leaders for failing to embrace Donald Trump as the choice of millions of voters, laying out his most extensive views to date about Trump at the top of the ticket. He's also repudiating some of the presumptive nominee's comments -- particularly about prisoners of war. In a wide-ranging "State of the Union" interview in his campaign office in Phoenix, McCain criticized party leaders who are reluctant to back Trump, saying they are "out of step" with voters who have chosen the controversial businessman as the GOP standard-bearer. He defended Trump for being a strong...

    No dynamic better embodies the internal conflict roiling the Republican Party today than the squeeze Trump is putting on McCain, the original independent and maverick of the party. On a larger scale, nobody has been a more consistent voice on American foreign policy for the GOP than McCain, whose views on conflict, diplomacy, and America's role in the world Trump has largely rejected. In McCain's home state of Arizona, the latest Rocky Mountain Poll shows Kirkpatrick tied with McCain at 42 percent, with 16 percent of voters still undecided. But the same poll shows the biggest hurdle between McCain and...

    Donald Trump’s coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if you’re a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But that’s the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

The poll was not paid for or conducted in coordination with any campaign. McCain has previously been censured by the Arizona Republican Party for abandoning conservative values and being “eerily silent against Liberals,” while publicly reprimanding conservatives in his own party. After 34 years, Arizona Republicans can see right through his six year cycle of campaign conservatism. They’ve had enough of his broken promises and the constant compromise and capitulation...

Even if one boat’s systems completely shut down, couldn’t they rely on the...

    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 state’s rural counties in a modest but...

For those who pay attention, such coy euphemisms as “maverick” betray a more-sinister label: turncoat. Though he represents one of the most-conservative states in the union in the Senate, McCain consistently works against conservative issues. Though a supporter of defense spending, McCain continues to undermine America’s safety on the most-basic of issues.

    Soros Fingerprints on DeLay Frame-upBy Richard PoeFrontPageMagazine.com | October 10, 2005 THREE SEPARATE FORCES are attacking Congressman Tom DeLay at the moment. Outwardly, these forces seem independent. On closer inspection, however, we find that all three have something in common. All have significant links to leftwing billionaire, Democrat kingmaker and convicted insider trader George Soros. (1) The first of these attackers is Texas prosecutor Ronald Earle, who has indicted DeLay for alleged violations of state campaign finance laws. The second attacker is Republican Senator John McCain, whose Senate Committee on Indian Affairs is probing the involvement of certain of DeLay's...

    Soros Shadow Party Stalks DeLayBy Richard PoeFrontPageMagazine.com | April 12, 2005 On the day that Terri Schiavo died — victim of a court order condemning the brain-damaged woman to death by thirst and starvation — Representative Tom DeLay of Texas did what few politicians have the courage to do these days. He spoke his mind."This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most," DeLay told Fox News on March 31. "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." DeLay’s strong language worried some Republicans. They pointed...

    Newt Gingrich laid it out perfectly on Sunday. The forced ouster of Mozilla co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich this week was a sign of the "new fascism" of liberalism that's sweeping American life. "People need to realize, if you're a young faculty member, in a lot of places if you're a young member of a news department and you have the wrong views – meaning conservative – you have no career," Gingrich said on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "This is just the most open and blatant example of the new fascism, which says, 'if you don't agree with us...

    Another person who unequivocally does not support Trump and his endorses is Meghan McCain. Naturally, she has come out as a supporter of Cruz only a few hours after Fiorina’s announcement. VIDEO AT LINK On Your World with Neil Cavuto, McCain responded to the host’s question about the possible impact of Neil Bush‘s recent support of Cruz by saying that she found it much less important than Fiorina’s. “I was a huge, huge Carly Fiorina fan and supporer,” she said, insisting that “she has the capacity to get a lot of young, conservative women taking a second look at Ted...

    A divided Republican Party erupted into open and bitter warfare on Thursday as its two previous presidential nominees delivered an extraordinary rebuke of its current front-runner, Donald J. Trump, warning that his election could put the United States and its democratic system in peril.

    Keep blasting away at your leading candidate and trying to thwart the will of your voters, you will lose any chance at winning the presidency and you'll lose the House and Senate too. Leftist open-borders RINOs Romney, McCain and the so-called GOP "leaders" are complete idiots. They don't call it the stupid party for nothing.

    Stephanie Rader, a spy for the U.S. during World War II, died at 100 in January. But thanks to a spat between two Republican senators, her life was one month too short to see her service honored by Congress. Arizona Sen. John McCain temporarily blocked a bill commemorating veterans of the Office of Strategic Services with a gold medal as he feuded with Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama, who leads the committee in charge of the measure. The bill finally passed this week after McCain relented, but not before Rader had passed away... McCain at first denied knowing anything about...
