    “YOU DIDN’T HAVE a conservative senator from the West leading the charge for gun control before now,” Michael Barnes, the head now, of Handgun Control, bragged to the Los Angeles Times in April. The gun control debate in Washington has hit center stage because Sen. John McCain, R Ariz., has now become one of the premier flag carriers for the enemies of the Second Amendment. In early April, the Senate passed McCain’s campaign finance reform bill to severely restrict Americans’ freedom of speech. Now, McCain has joined with Al Gore running mate Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D Conn. a gun ban...

    Over the course of the presidential campaign, John McCain has repeatedly emphasized his willingness to stand up to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as proof that only he possesses the fortitude and judgment to become the next leader of the free world. In his acceptance speech at the Republican convention, McCain lashed out at Putin and the Russian oligarchs, who, “rich with oil wealth and corrupt with power…[are] reassembling the old Russian Empire.”...Yet despite McCain’s tough talk, behind the scenes his top advisers have cultivated deep ties with Russia’s oligarchy—indeed, they have promoted the Kremlin’s geopolitical and economic interests, as...

    He's back!  Fresh off a highly successful political rally at his funeral, John McCain will now continue his Uniparty work thanks to the miracle of suspended animation.  We spoke to Deep State spokeswoman, the lovely Lisa Stzrok, about what's being called: McCain 2.0: Why did the Deep State decide to put the Senator in suspended animation? Frankly, McCain 2.0 is vital to us because Trump is so hard to combat.  The Fake News has attacked Trump with false stories 24/7 for three years, but he keeps getting stronger.  Ex-Presidents are also afraid to go after Trump alone. That's why...

    The late Sen. John McCain is being lauded far and wide for his long career of public service. Rep. John Lewis, the famous civil rights activist, hailed McCain as a “warrior for peace.” In reality, McCain embodied a mix of moralism and militarism that worked out badly for America and the world.

    Well in the last couple of weeks Mollie Tibbets, the girl who said she hated white people, and good old John McCain have died. One at a time, Mollie's father Rob is nothing less than a gutless puke. Rather than talking about his daughter and the crime against her, he spends his time like a special little snowflake running around singing the praises of diversity and all that Kumbaya stuff. To her father Rob, focus on what happened to your daughter. Don't turn this in to an Obama "teaching moment." You are obviously a liberal loon and all that that...

Wonder if it’ll have a lasting impact.”So wrote Wall Street Journal correspondent David Wessel on Saturday morning, reacting to the fact that the late Senator’s funeral rites seemed to be essentially about “two things” - as political comedian Tim Young put it via Twitter - “Remembering Sen. McCain and hating on Trump.”“From the reporting on it, it seems the latter was sadly more important than anything else,” continued Young. “There has never been quite such a spectacle against a sitting president,” tweeted Financial Times columnist Edward Luce.“Watching the...

    Plain to see that the ‘Resistance” is being led by a leader who’s still in hiding Welcome to a new kind of reality that is as graphic as it gets: the bound-to-fail, shamefully politicized Senator John McCain Memorial kickoff for Midterm 2018 elections. In other words, having now unleashed all their hellcats out to the hustings, deranged Democrats are leading off the Midterm campaign with an already fading from memory dead man. The big fix, according to giddy with power progressive lefties, is already in.

    It's obvious from the events of this pass weekend that the Uniparty, ex-Presidents, and Fake News have a soft spot for ex-Senator John McCain. The funeral was successfully used by these actors to take pot shots at We the People's POTUS, Donald J. Trump. A FReeper mailed me an observation that we should be grateful the Deep State doesn't create a permanent display of the embalmed McCain.  Consider the mausoleum in Moscow where Vladimir Lenin where visitor have seen his body and face behind protective glass for 94 years now. But I thought, what if the Deep State actually...

    Funeral services are not for the benefit of the defunct, who is beyond our praise or condemnation, but for the living, who know before long that they will follow the honored dead into a cold grave. Senator John McCain’s funeral was the most ostentatious that Washington has accorded except for a president, and much grander than the 2006 funeral of Gerald Ford, for example. The American Establishment took the opportunity to mourn a world that it imagined but never inhabited.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 27 August 2018 | Tom Rogan
    Sen. John McCain's passing has left his Senate seat vacant and waiting to be filled by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican. If she's interested in filling that seat, Meghan McCain would deserve immediate support from conservatives. To be clear, Meghan McCain might not want to be a U.S. senator. And that's fine, no one should ever face pressure to serve in public office unless in the situation of a national emergency. But if McCain is open to replacing her father until a special election can be held in 2020, she would make a great conservative successor to her irreplaceable...

    POTUS, Donald J. Trump approved all the Federal Funds, Military Funds, use of aircraft for transportation & Federal Government properties, etc., and the thanks he gets from the McCain "no class" family, ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama and Ex-POTUS, GW Bush is not thanks but unrestrained scorn and hate. These people, Obama, Bush and Meghan McCain are the lowest of the low life, filled with hate, envy, jealousy, little dignity nor, any loyalty. If POTUS, Trump had not approved and ordered the actions he did, the John McCain funeral would have been, not noteworthy at all. Go figure. The goods news...

    The sugary praise, often from former critics, does his memory no favors. The past week has featured so much extravagant praise of John McCain that Jill Abramson, the former editor of the New York Times, had to admit “McCain would cringe over some of the glowing tributes pouring in.” Take this example from The New Yorker: In death, McCain had finally become one with the country that was the object of his deepest faith, and any praise lavished on him, during the funeral proceedings or at any point afterward, would redound to the greater glory of America. Yes, of course,...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Our long national nightmare is finally over. – Senator John McCain, who died on Saturday, August 25, was finally laid to rest on Sunday, September 2, after eight interminable days of honoring, memorializing and rank demagoguery, all of which the amazingly egotistical Senator planned for himself. And so, the nation can heave a huge, collective sigh of relief. I’ll get criticized for that opening paragraph, but I want those of you coming to bash me to remember that in 1963, our country suffered the assassination of a President. That killing took place...

    Inappropriate: In case you haven’t noticed, the Left-wing ‘establishment’ media has a mission that will continue for the next several years: Take any opportunity, no matter how inappropriate, to bash POTUS Donald Trump. The latest example was the late Sen. John McCain’s funeral. Before the long-serving Republican was even laid to rest, the deranged media started attacking POTUS for anything and everything.

    Last week I wrote about John McCain and received emails after the column appeared. One of them asked me why I did not talk about the Keating – John McCain was one of the five sitting Senators who was part of the Keating Five. This took place in 1989. According to Wikipedia, “Senators Glenn and McCain were cleared of having acted improperly but were criticized for having exercised ‘poor judgment.'” When I was in Iraq in 2003, after going to the house where Saddam Hussein kept women, one employee of the Ministry of Culture said to me, “Nobody perfect.” That...

    John McCain was laid to rest Sunday on a green hill at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, Md. alongside the classmate who was his “wing man” and lifelong friend. The Vietnam War hero, maverick senator and two-time presidential candidate was bid farewell in a private ceremony beside the Severn River by his closest family members and friends, along with military dignitaries and members of his academy Class of 1958. The Arizona senator’s final resting place is the cemetery near the fields and classrooms where he and his friend, Admiral Chuck Larson, met as young men six decades ago....

The various ceremonies in Arizona, Washington & Maryland were filled with pomp and circumstance from A-Z!!! The school children in Phoenix , Arizona were released from classes and required to line up on street curbs to honor the passing the McCain motorcade. The Federal government workers in Washington were also released to pay tribute to the McCain body lying in...
