  • Students protesting Shapiro chant ‘John McCain’s dead’ ('Reagan's dead')

    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?

    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 blames House GOP defeat on John McCain

    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 McCain aides blast GOP for casting doubt on results of Senate race in Arizona

    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.

    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...

    The weekend did nothing to quell the ongoing war between Meghan McCain and Laura Ingraham. McCain, daughter of presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, came out last week and responded to Ingraham’s remarks that she was "plus-sized," remarks that were a direct result of McCain’s public criticism of the Republican Party. Ingraham’s comments also included some disrespectful dismissal: "Do you think that anyone would be talking to you if you weren’t kind of cute and you weren’t the daughter of John McCain?" She went on to mock McCain as a heavyset Valley girl. McCain wasted no time biting back, and took...

    HBO’s Bill Maher lashed out at Sen. Lindsey Graham on Friday for his defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the South Carolina Republican was missing “the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” meaning the late Sen. John McCain. Maher, host of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” took shots at Graham multiple times -- for example, saying in his opening monologue that the senator was “familiar” with the “back door.” “The fact that Trump can either find people like him or make him … Lindsey Graham needs the stabilizing influence of his dead boyfriend,” Maher said later, in reference...

    Four distinguished experts tell the tragic and unconscionable inside story. Editors’ note: Last Friday, Sept. 21, 2018, our nation, led by our president, solemnly marked National POW/MIA Recognition Day, during which we honored all American prisoners of war and expressed our deep gratitude and respect for what they endured and -- as empirical evidence suggests -- in some cases may very well be continuing to endure. Indeed, we pay tribute to those who never returned -- and, of course, also to their suffering families. In honor of this sacred day, Frontpage has deemed it important to run Jamie Glazov's Symposium...

    Late GOP senator introduced Tom Malinowski at 2013 confirmation hearing In his quest to defeat a five-term Republican congressman, New Jersey Democrat Tom Malinowski is turning to the late Sen. John McCain. Malinowski’s latest ad, obtained first by Roll Call, opens with the Arizona Republican senator introducing him to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 2013, praising his work to end torture when he worked at Human Rights Watch. “I am forever grateful,” McCain says in the footage. The Senate confirmed Malinowski the following year to be assistant secretary of State for democracy, human rights and labor. He’s now challenging...

    “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...

    Sarah Palin had a pretty good Super Tuesday. Three of the four candidates she endorsed won, bringing her record in tightly contested races to 8-3 overall this midterm election year. "Oftentimes I'm looking at the candidate who shares the circumstances in which I've been: underfunded, up against the machine, no big endorsements, running a grassroots campaign with the help of volunteer friends and family," Palin told TIME. Palin has done particularly well picking winners in Senate and gubernatorial races, having endorsed Senate candidate Rand Paul in Kentucky, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Susana Martinez for Governor in New Mexico and on...

    he late Sen. John McCain was laid to rest over Labor Day weekend, with family and friends, political colleagues and opponents, and a coterie of other respectable and respectful people all gathering to grieve over the war hero and lawmaker they loved and admired. President Trump was notably absent. Before his death, McCain reportedly made it clear that America's 45th president was not welcome at his funeral. This isn't particularly surprising, as the two had long and famously feuded, their divergence perhaps best highlighted by Trump's widely derided criticism of McCain for being "captured" and held as a prisoner of...
