    Lower performing students hardest hit BOSTON – As we approach the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the United States Department of Education in May, shocking trends in student performance should lead us to reconsider the federal role in education and whether the initiative for policymaking should be returned to local schools, communities, and states. Breaking with decades of slow improvement, U.S. reading and math scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and other assessments have seen historic declines since most states implemented national Common Core English and math curriculum standards six years ago, according to a new...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) says he will not be casting his vote for President Donald Trump in 2020, citing concerns he had with the president before the 2016 campaign. “I just couldn’t support [Trump] long before he started to run. The birtherism thing was just too much for me. And then it piled on,” Flake, a vocal critic of Trump, told the Washington Post. Flake also warned that a second Trump term could deter younger voters from the GOP, especially on issues concerning the environment and immigration. “So for young people who’ve grown up around minorities or had a...

    (CNN)According to Meghan McCain, "it shouldn't take a rocket scientist" to know who she is voting for in the next presidential election. "There's one man who has made pain in my life a living hell and another man who has literally shepherded me through the grief process," McCain said Wednesday night during "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen."

    When asked about the 2020 election between presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, McCain refused to say who will be getting her vote. However, she did say, “I keep telling everyone I will promise you will know who I'm voting for but it won't take a rocket scientist to know.” Joe Biden was a long-time friend to the McCain family and even spoke at John McCain’s funeral. Whereas Donald Trump did not attend the funeral and has repeatedly attacked the war hero and long-time Arizona senator. “There is one who has made pain in my life a...

    THREE SEPARATE FORCES are attacking Congressman Tom DeLay. 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 certain of DeLay's associates for their dealings with Indian casino interests. (2) The third attacker is a network of bogus...

    As a moderate, the late Arizona Senator John McCain was and is a political hero of mine. While I did not always agree with everything John McCain stood for, I respect the fact that he stood up for what he believed in, I respect his service to our country, I respect that he didn’t view compromise as a weakness, and I respect his campaign message of “Country First.” Many people nowadays when they hear America First, think of it as a nationalistic dog whistle thanks to President Trump. This however, was not what John McCain meant when he used the...

    David Kramer, an associate of Senator John McCain, invoked his Fifth Amendment right to not testify to Congress in connection to his role in distribution of the fake Russia dossier to the FBI. Kramer was briefed by the Russian dossier author Christopher Steele in London in 2016. Kramer then returned back to the US and delivered the phony dossier to John McCain. McCain handed the document over to the FBI.

    [Subtitle: “I hope that my story will help you understand the methods of Russian operatives in Washington and how they use U.S. enablers to achieve major foreign policy goals without disclosing those interests,” Browder writes.]The financier Bill Browder has emerged as an unlikely central player in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Sergei Magnitsky, an attorney Browder hired to investigate official corruption, died in Russian custody in 2009. Congress subsequently imposed sanctions on the officials it held responsible for his death, passing the Magnitsky Act in 2012. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government retaliated, among other ways,...

    ABC News’ “The View” co-host Meghan McCain shot back Thursday when Whoopi Goldberg compared Mitt Romney to the late Sen. John McCain, her father, and told the panel Romney is nothing like her dad. Goldberg said Romney’s decision to break party lines Wednesday and vote to convict President Trump on one article of impeachment reminded her of another free-thinking Republican. “I’m just glad somebody stood up and said ‘no,’” Goldberg said. ”I’m going to give faith in him like I gave to your dad.”

    Rudy Giuliani’s indicted business associate Lev Parnas accused Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) of being “in the loop” on the scheme to pressure Ukraine to launch an investigation into unfounded accusations against former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading Democratic presidential candidate. Parnas, a Florida businessman who had donated to President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, said he was “1 million percent” certain that Graham was aware of the Ukraine operation. “Rudy told me not once but on several occasions that he spoke to Lindsey Graham about the situation, that Lindsey was always aware,” he told Anderson Cooper in a CNN interview...

    Speaking at a conference today in Florida Cindy McCain, the widow of late Sen. John McCain, admitted, “We [those in the government and positions of power] all knew about him [Epstein],” but, she says, authorities were “afraid” to arrest the convicted sex trafficker, despite the fact that “everyone knew what he was doing.” “Epstein was hiding in plain sight,” said Cindy McCain. “We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing, but we had no one that was — no legal aspect that would go after him. They were afraid of him. For whatever reason, they were...

    Meghan McCain ditched “The View” on Thursday morning after Page Six reported she’s hated by her co-hosts. “Meghan’s out today. She’ll be back on Monday,” Whoopi Goldberg told the audience as she opened the show. She didn’t provide any further explanation. McCain did somewhat confusingly appear in a pre-taped interview with Michael B. Jordan in the middle of the live show. Sources told us McCain planned a personal day on Friday, but was unexpectedly absent from the table on Thursday. “She stayed home for a personal matter,” a source close to McCain told Page Six.

    Late Senator John McCain provided disgraced former FBI chief James Comey with five separate reports from Christopher Steele that the FBI didn’t previously possess related to unsubstantiated allegations of collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the Justice Department’s recent Inspector General report revealed. There have long been questions about why it was necessary for McCain to pass Steele’s anti-Trump dossier to Comey on December 9, 2016, several weeks after the November 2016 presidential election. By then, Steele had already met numerous times with FBI agents to provide them with his controversial reports. Steele, however, was terminated as an...

    Anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele testified that he was “absolutely flabbergasted” when BuzzFeed published the dossier after an advisor to late Senator John McCain shared the controversial document with the media outlet purportedly against Steele’s wishes. That tidbit was buried in a footnote on page 176 of the Justice Department’s recently released 476-page Inspector General (IG) report on the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation. Steele made the remarks about Buzzfeed and the McCain staff member during an interview with the IG. The relevant footnote relates: Steele testified in foreign litigation that he did not provide his reports to journalists or media...

    In 2017, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) admitted that he delivered the Steele dossier to former FBI Director James Comey. The now-deceased Senator John McCain wrote in his memoir, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations, that he had “no regrets” about alerting the FBI about the disproven Steele dossier. The Hill reported about McCain’s arrogance in his memoir, and how he wrote that he “did what duty demanded I do” in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain...
