    A Pennsylvania man hunted by federal authorities for allegedly threatening to “put a bullet…in the head of President Donald J. Trump” is suspected to be on the run in Ohio on Monday after authorities there found an abandoned truck he's believed to have stolen. Police investigating a crash late Sunday afternoon near Mansfield determined the truck on the side of Interstate-71 was the same one alleged to have been swiped by Shawn Christy from a construction company in Luzerne County, Pa., about 380 miles east, Fox 56 reported. The 27-year-old from McAdoo has been on the radar of U.S. Marshals,...

    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...

    It may be hard to believe I had already been mulling over this topic and am not writing in response to anything, but it’s true. For weeks, maybe a couple of months, I have considered writing it, thought I was ready for it, pushed it back after the death of Sen. John McCain, and now, have pushed it forward in light of the same. He is not the subject of this reflection. Timing just necessitates I mention him. My focus here is Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and McCain’s vice presidential running mate. I have shared many times...

    McCain’s memorial remembrances were filled with themes of unity, inclusion, and compromise. They stressed how McCain was someone who could reach across the aisle, find consensus, and put differences aside to bring people together for the greater good. It’s too bad McCain’s final actions contradicted that message... Senator McCain had a perfect opportunity to be the “maverick” of his reputation. He could have been the unifier. He could have done the right thing by allowing even those he had unresolved issues with, differences with, to come and pay their respects and to honor him. He could have shown the country,...

    One thing for certain, as far as the Democrats are concerned, no matter who the pick, there will never be a replacement more loyal to the progressive-left than the late Senator John McCain. As things currently stand, the pettiness and spite engendered by Senator John McCain’s funeral overshadows all that could have been celebrated about the maverick senator’s life. Trying to make hatred live beyond the grave is a fruitless endeavour because all things are passing, including the human energy needed to sustain it and keep it going.

    WASHINGTON — Not long after Senator John McCain learned last summer that he had terminal brain cancer, he began convening meetings every Friday in his Capitol Hill office with a group of trusted aides. The subject was his funeral. He obsessed over the music, selecting the Irish ballad “Danny Boy” and several patriotic hymns. He choreographed the movement of his coffin from Arizona, his home state, to Washington. And in April, when he knew the end was coming, he began reaching out to Republicans, Democrats and even a Russian dissident with requests that they deliver eulogies and serve as pallbearers....

    Flashback to November 2010. A video we posted almost eight years ago of Sen. John McCain on CNN praising Gov. Sarah Palin up one side and down the other. He even compared her to Ronald Reagan, saying “I think she’s doing a great job,” and “I’m proud of her.” Also remember that Sarah Palin went to Arizona and endorsed John McCain for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2010........(video)......Palin stood up for McCain when he needed it most. What a contrast to numerous media reports that indicate Palin was not invited to attend McCain’s upcoming funeral service. Some say there...

    The great state of Arizona, in the latest census reading has just over 7,000,000 people. According to ABC, Arizona Central & Arizona State Police, the estimates for the public persons viewing the John McCain casket range from 1,000, 1,500 to 7500 people. "SAD" Ronald Reagan in his funeral wake had thousands upon thousands of Californians, etc. viewing his remains and, also as his funeral motorcade drove to his final resting place, hundreds of thousands of California citizens stopped their cars, trucks, etc., on roads, streets, highways freeways and ran to the center dividers to pay homage to the beloved Reagan....

    Remember Ted Kennedy in 1987 claiming that if the Senate confirmed Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, “women would be forced into back-alley abortions [and] blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters?” Not vitriolic. How about the 1991 “high-tech lynching” by Senate Dems of Clarence Thomas? Again, not vitriolic. Or the infamous NAACP dragging-death ad of 2000 in which George W. Bush was accused of killing the victim all over again? Nope, not vitriolic. No, the political vitriol didn’t begin until 2008. And it was Sarah Palin’s fault. That is, if you believe CNN, and, apparently, John McCain. This morning,...

Now I hear that Sarah Palin, a loyal VP running mate, is not invited to your funeral. Have a nice day.- Sincerely, just one of the millions who had no choice but to cast their vote for you in 08.

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral. Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony. McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family. The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice...

MSNBC booking producers Jesse Rodriguez and Michael Del Mouro first reported on O’Donnell’s scoop, tweeting, “NBC’s @KellyO reports: Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has not been invited to attend memorial services for John McCain” and “No invitation has yet been extended to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to attend McCain’s memorial services, sources tell NBC’s @KellyO.”

    If you’re confused by President Trump’s reluctance to celebrate the life of Sen. John McCain, it’s because Trump knows something you don’t: his base. The Red Hats And Talk Radio wing of American politics has long had a problematic relationship with the Arizona senator. And by “problematic,” I mean, they hated his guts. For years, McCain was the poster child of the kind of Republicanism they loathed, the kind of Republicanism that eventually led many of these voters to turn to Trump in the first place. And if he were still with us, McCain would say “You’re damn right.” New...

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Palin’s interview did not make the final cut of the show, which also features segments with O.J. Simpson and former Democratic congressman Barney Frank. Such a decision was hinted at by Showtime president of programming Gary Levine earlier this month after he said that Cohen has a “very high bar” for what makes the final cut.....News that Palin may be involved in the show emerged last month after she revealed that Cohen had duped her by posing as a disabled veteran eager to discuss issues facing the country. “Cohen pretended to be a disabled veteran...

    Flags across the country were lowered this weekend to mark the death of Arizona Sen. John McCain on Saturday from brain cancer. Early Monday morning, however, flags at the White House had been returned to their usual position, prompting figurative gasps from Washington journalists and Trump critics. ... In fact, however, the White House’s decision to raise the flag on Monday morning was in exact accordance to the country’s official guidelines for flying the flag at half-staff. The nonbinding U.S. Flag Code, adopted in 1942, dictates that when a member of Congress dies, the flag should be lowered “on the...

    Amid glowing tributes to the life and career of Arizona Senator John McCain on Monday, MSNBC took time to use the Republican lawmaker’s passing to trash his 2008 vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin, labeling McCain’s selection of the then-Alaska governor as his “biggest political mistake.” “McCain made some controversial decisions, some much-criticized decisions. One of those decisions was who he chose to run with in 2008, Sarah Palin,” proclaimed anchor Katy Tur early in the 2:00 p.m. ET hour. She then recited a column from Washington Post Associate Editor David Ignatius making that case: The anti-Washington rage embodied by...

    John McCain passed away Saturday night at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer but that did not stop him from taking one last shot at President Trump from beyond the grave. McCain’s farewell message to the nation was read aloud in Phoenix on Monday afternoon by Rick Davis, a former campaign manager for McCain.
