    The National Rifle Association reports on the gun control bill that Senator John McCain introduced with liberal Democrats Joe Lieberman and Jack Reed. --------------- Introduced, appropriately enough, on Halloween, the McCain-Reed-DeWine-Lieberman gun show bill masquerades as reform but imposes bureaucratic restrictions aimed at eliminating gun shows. The legislation is based on the McCain-Lieberman bill (S. 890) from the 107th Congress, and, similarly, not only fails to address gun owners` most significant concerns, but also fails to address any issues within the National Instant Check System (NICS). McCain-Reed is not about closing a "gun show loophole"—there is no "gun show loophole."...

    WARNING TO CONSERVATIVES!!! When the AP quotes Open Borders moll Tamar Jacoby, Arlen Specter, RINO/Bushie/McCainite Charlie Black as saying McCain is "looking strong" or good on immigration" and no conservatives or anti-Invasion advocates or experts are quoted in the [following] story, you know the fix is in! McCain is on a major media effort to try to make conservatives like him enough to vote for him and he knows he's in deep trouble. So he's going to try to pull the wool over our eyes by saying he's going to get tough on the Border--if elected. What he WON'T discuss...
  • Florida Sen. Mel Martinez to endorse McCain

    Minneapolis StarTribune (aka The Red Star) ^ | 1/25/08 | Liz Sidoti - AP Reporter
    Florida Sen. Mel Martinez will endorse John McCain on Friday, The Associated Press has learned, a move likely to give the Republican presidential candidate a crucial boost with the state's Cuban-Americans just days before the primary. The decision is a blow to Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor in a close fight with McCain for support of voters in the Cuban-American community _ and to keep his candidacy alive. Two Republican officials disclosed the upcoming endorsement on the condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting the announcement. As recently as Thursday night, Martinez indicated he would remain neutral in the...
  • McCain: "simply loathed by many fellow Republicans"

    McCain is loathesome. And, it's not just fellow Republicans who despise him. But, if the hard core GOPers want to hate their front runner, who are we to stop them: But Sen. McCain still confronts a problem both in the remainder of the nomination race, and, if he wins, in the fall: He is simply loathed by many fellow Republicans, often for the very bipartisanship and maverick streak that attracts independents. His biggest, and perhaps final, test comes Tuesday, when 21 states hold contests -- most of them open only to Republican voters. "So it is over. Finished. In November,...
  • McCain: Enemy of the POWs

    . . . Everyone in D.C. and Arizona knows of the mean-spirited side of John McCain. But on no issue has John McCain been meaner than the question of the hundreds of U.S. POWs who did not come home in 1973 when McCain came home. He has used his unique and hard-earned status as a former POW not to help the cause of the un-returned POWs, but rather to attack POW activists, demean POW family members, and to bolster the Pentagon's long-term strategy of debunking credible sightings of POWs.

  • GOP May Regret Raising McCain

    02/04/2008 4:14:33 AM PST · by Kaslin · 73 replies · 196+ views ^ | February 4, 2008 | Donald Lambro
    WASHINGTON -- The prospect of John McCain all but clinching the GOP presidential nomination in Super Tuesday's primaries has certainly raised the anxiety level among conservative Republicans. The trouble with McCain, conservative leaders say, is that he strays far afield from party orthodoxy on so many issues -- vital, ideological issues that lie at the core of the GOP's agenda. There was the Arizona senator's rigid opposition to the Bush tax cuts. He voted against them twice, in 2001 and 2003, votes that to this day he claims were justified, even though he now wants to make the tax cuts...
  • Ronald Reagan would be shocked, disturbed by McCain

    02/07/2008 5:58:17 AM PST · by Brilliant · 49 replies · 152+ views ^ | February 7, 2008 | Jack A. Chambless
    ...Given that he and some of the other Republicans have been embroiled in a campaign to prove who is the most like Reagan, the choice of McCain is both shocking and a bit disturbing to those of us who remember the Reagan years fondly. As a registered Libertarian and former Republican I must confess that I have utter contempt for any suggestion that McCain carries the mantle of Reagan Republicanism. If Republicans are honest -- and they remember anything about the 1980s -- they can only conclude that McCain is a militaristic socialist. Reagan came to power at the height...

    Those following the proceedings during the past year of the Senate Select Committee on POW and MIA Affairs have been mystified by the rabid actions of the one man on the committee who should be grateful that for the nearly three decades there have been activists in America who have refused to let die the issue of the fate of Americans lost and missing in Southeast Asia from the Vietnam War. I am speaking of course of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). None of the Senators on the Select Committee have been as vicious in their attacks on POW/MIA family members...

  • Flawed Cindy McCain has a grudge list

    Flawed Cindy McCain has a grudge list Tony Allen-Mills ON almost every step of his march towards the Republican nomination, John McCain has relied on the support of his glamorous second wife Cindy. Yet she has not always been a political asset. A Republican victory in November would bring to the White House a formidable but flawed first lady. McCain’s marriage has long attracted attention both for the 18-year age gap between husband and wife and for their adopted Asian daughter, who became the focus of one of the most vicious dirty tricks of the 2000 presidential campaign. The couple...

  • All in the Family (Who is the real John McCain?)

    JOHN McCAIN Who is the real John McCain? McCain dumped his first wife after she had been disabled in an auto accident. Although this woman had worked tirelessly to get him released from captivity as a POW in Vietnam, he did not hesitate to betray her with other women upon finding her crippled when he returned home. In fact, McCain developed a serious reputation as a womanizer during the years following his release. Finally, he acquired a fortune through his second marriage and settled down with his second wife, Cindy. According to the Phoenix Gazette of May 19, 1987, "the...

    Wall Street Journal/Opinion Journal ^ | 5/31/2005 | Brendan Miniter
    Having helped broker the Great Senate Compromise last week, Sen. John McCain is back in the media limelight, winning the usual accolades for bucking his party. But the deal by 14 "moderates" doesn't just preserve the judicial filibuster and allow confirmation of a few of President Bush's "extremist" nominees. It also reveals that the myth the McCainiacs hoped would propel their man into the Oval Office in 2000 still endures, despite evidence of successive elections to the contrary. The myth is simply that the only way to win elections is to draw voters from the other party by bucking a...

    McCain's Straight Talk ^ | February 1, 2008
    John McCain is neither the inevitable Republican Nominee nor as electable as current polling data suggests for three reasons 1) the mainstream media will turn their backs on McCain as soon as he is the nominee, 2) so-called independents and moderates will not show up as strongly for McCain in the general election as in the primary, 3) McCain cannot unify the party because many important conservatives will not rally around him, and 4) McCain-Feingold will literally seal his fate because conservatives will not outlay cash in the general election for McCain. The mainstream media will turn against Senator McCain...
  • McCain No Way

    McCain scares me more than Hillary. At least we know what she represents. A “maverick” like McCain is so off the wall and unpredictable it’s kind of like living with a lunatic - you live in constant fear and trepidation of what the lunatic might decide to do next! I last voted democratic for Jimmy Carter in 1976, But if McCain becomes nominee of the party I will vote Democrat because McCain has hurt the conservative movement more than any other Republican. Can you image what liberals ideas would become law if he became president? At least Hillary would have...

    Isn't John McCain a disloyal Republican who's been sniping at President Bush's policies for the last six years? On the other hand, he's been pushing some things the president liked, too. "Amnesty" anyone. Of course McCain did support the "surge" in Iraq. But that's something McCain said he always wanted, more troops in Iraq. I took note when the surge was announced after the 2006 election results came in. I saw it as political preparation for 2008 and couldn't help but notice that the President was "aligning" himself with McCain on that issue. The Republican Party seems to have developed...

    This is a great day to keep sending a message to John McCain in the winner takes all delegates Virginia Primary. I've heard John McCain say this election will be about higher taxes or lower taxes. It could be if we elect him our next president. Is anyone reading his lips about this one? From the Freepers on the Virginia board it seems a lot of robocalls have been going on out there. The Trust Huckabee operation is my guess as to who's behind the robocalls that attack Huckabee's opponents. This outfit who's leader Patrick Davis has pictures of the...
