Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of
McCain should be stripped of the Armed Forces Committee Chairmanship. This is the most dirty act of betrayal possible. The man did not even have the courtesy to call Trump, and ask him, because he was so anxious to stab Trump in the back. McCain is persona non grata, and forever branded with lying traitor on his forehead. McCain has not met a terrorist that he does not want to arm, or a country he does not want to get the US involved in militarily. McCain should court martialed out of the Senate.
The pressure should be unrelenting for McCain to do the honorable thing and resign. This was such an act of betrayal and dishonesty, that his name should forever be associated with one of the most despicable politically motivated deeds in modern history. He must be confronted and then denounced.
To poster #5, McPain is despised by the POWs he was interned with. He was a traitor then and is a traitor now. If it weren´t for his dad and grandfather being respected flag officers, admirals at that, he would have been fired for crashing not one, but five navy aircraft. I guess that makes him an Ace. Not!
I call AZ home and I am totally disgusted with both of the senators from this great state of Arizona. I hope Dr. Kelli Ward tromps on Flake (great name for a true flake) and brings some dignity to the US Senate.
Some posters don’t seem to understand that a person doesn’t have to be elected unanimously to an office. Not every person in a state has to vote for a senator for them to be elected. I am stunned at the ignorance displayed on this. If someone we don’t like is elected, it doesn’t mean that every person or every Republican voted for them. Just enough votes for a majority.
Before posting such opinions, posters should go to the respective state offices that give the registration count just before elections. (In California, that is the office of the Secretary of State.) In California, they’d find out that Republican registrations in the millions are seriously outnumbered by Democrats in more millions. Outnumbered Republican voters should not be held responsible and slammed for what happens in elections.
#23: that´s the concern. He switches to Dem as does Graham and causes major problems for Trump. I´d love it if Manchin crossed over as he´s said he might. That would take some of the power away from the bobsy twins.
Best if Arizona were to just recall him or demand his resignation and then replace him. What a horrible man he´s become.
McCain would never, ever have been selected to become a naval aviator, being at the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy (894 out of 899). Only because of nepotism; his father and grandfather being Admirals, was he allowed to fly. He was known as McNasty in high school. How this aged p**** keeps being re-elected is sad. He should be in a rest home.
#5 he was no hero. All of that is a myth. I remember very well when this snake came back from Vietnam. He should be kicked out of the senate, Arizona should recall him, he should be removed from his committees and also stripped of his military commission and benefits.
McCain was such a lousy pilot that he destroyed 5 aircraft before his last one. He and Kerry conspired to cover up and hide the survival of American POWs in VietNam. This guy was never a hero. Being shot down and taken prisoner doesn´t make you a hero. Thank God that he wasn´t elected as President, as he is nuttier than most demoncrats. Most people voted for Palin rather than McCain.
What drove me crazy was watching his little trollop of a daughter sitting on the panel of One lucky guy (or whatever it´s called) opining about the ramifications of the dossier that her stinkin´ dad gave to the FBI. She was acting as if the fake document fell from the sky. Get her off that couch, Fox!
McCain just aligned himself with the likes of Jane Fonda. Willing to say or do anything for personal benefit. He can no longer complain about Fonda´s taking prisoners´ precious notes and pleas for help and giving them to the enemy.
If he ever was an American hero, which I don´t agree with, he is no longer. If you do one thing good, then spend the rest of your life shi-ing on America, you no longer get credit for that one thing. And, that is what McCain has done.
A true hero from the Hanoi Hilton was Rep. Sam Johnson from Texas. They barely talk. McTraitor broke faster than anyone else in the Hilton, giving him great infamy among the rest, who STILL tended his wounds and nursed him to health, although they witnessed others who died from their torture. McVain has been living with demons ever since.
His traitorous ways have just come home to roost. There is no way out of this one. He´d doomed. If McChins McConnell doesn´t oust him after inauguration and replace him with Ted Cruz, there will be war in the GOP.
Political counter culture icon Andrew Breitbart mastered the use of a simple term: “SO”? Whenever challenged about the downside of his approach, AB had an inherent knack for removing toxic attacks by owning, yet not accepting their framework of, the downside; then artfully he’d expose their banality through simple counter questions, ‘truisms’. Rabid leftists would never quite know how to respond to the linguistic judo and consistently over react in behavior and declaration. This exposed their ideological moonbattery. Sometimes he’d even join them in leading a chant framed to display the inevitable conclusion of their current protest: What do we
(Video) Donald Trump may have a point about paid protesters: Job ads running in more than 20 cities offer $2,500 per month for agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events. Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.” “Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad. “We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) on Tuesday introduced legislation that would mandate the declassification and public release of information on previous terrorist activities of former Guantanamo Bay detainees transferred since the presidential election. The Defense Department has announced the transfer of several Guantanamo prisoners to foreign countries in recent months, as Republicans in Congress have expressed concerns about former prisoners resuming terrorist activities and the ability of foreign governments to keep track of ex-detainees. The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that 10 detainees were transferred to the government of Oman this week, whittling the prison population down to below
President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes. Once in prison, Manning went on a hunger strike to demand sex change surgery in prison, which was granted by officials at the cost of American taxpayers. Obama included Manning on a list of prisoner commutations announced late Tuesday afternoon, allowing him to be set free on May 17, 2017. During the White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest noted the “stark” differences between Manning and
Yesterday, TGP reported here on James O’keefe’s first bombshell undercover video exposing radical leftists’ plans to disrupt President-elect Trump’s inaugural events, specifically targeting the Deploraball. According to Project Veritas, shortly after the election they received many tips that radical groups were planning to derail President-elect Trump’s inaugural events. Various groups gathered together under the #DisruptJ20 umbrella. This particular meeting was with three organizers from the group, D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition. Today, Project Veritas has released their second undercover video exposing how radical leftist group is attempting to block access to D.C. Metro using chains. LEGBA CARREFOUR, Disrupt J20 Organizer: So the
A set of spectacular pictures have emerged showing a precarious mountain motorway carved out of cliffs in remote China by local villagers hoping to reach the outside world. Located in Ningqang county in Shaanxi province, this 6000-metre-long (3.73-mile-long) road was designed and built by residents of Xifanggou, according to Xinhua. Construction started in 2000 and finished in 2006. (Photos) Driveways are carved from the vertical cliffs of Daba mountain, north-west China. The road has brought Xifanggou villagers closer to the nearby Maobahe Town as it shortened the usual travelling time to 10 minutes to reach the closest bus stop. There
President Obama might be done in the White House in three days, but that doesn´t mean he´s not going to make sure some his top administration officials and favorite athletes don´t get plum assignments first. The White House released a list of new appointments Tuesday morning and some top Obama administration names were included. Among them were Valerie Jarrett, his White House senior adviser, and Susan Rice, the national security adviser, who will both become general trustees to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications and chief salesman of the
They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. One letter,
Monday in Miami after attending a Martin Luther King Day event, while commenting on the controversy over Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) saying of President-elect Donald Trump he didn’t “see the president-elect as a legitimate president” and Trump’s tweeted response, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he “hoped” the Trump would have responded differently “given everything that John Lewis means to our country.” Rubio said, “I have tremendous admiration for Congressman Lewis, not only for what he has done but what he stand for, and that remains undiminished. I don’t agree with him that President-elect Trump is illegitimate. I believe it was
A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia. There are now more than 30 House Democrats — 31, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference
President-elect Donald Trump will be the least popular man to take the oath of office in four decades – and he enters the White House with a popularity rating just half of what Barack Obama´s was eight years ago. Trump scored an approval rating of just 40 percent in a new CNN / ORC poll. His approval rating was identical in an ABC News / Washington Post poll. Trump doesn´t appear to won over converts through his handling of the transition period. Disapproval of his transition handling has jumped to 52 per cent in the CNN poll, an increase of 7 points from
Fox News has re-signed Bob Beckel to be a co-host of The Five. Juan Williams will remain a Fox News contributor across all programs and continue appear on the program. Beckel parted ways with Fox News in the middle of 2015, with the network at that time stating that they could no longer be held “hostage to one man’s personal issues.” This followed Beckel spending several months recovering from surgery and being in rehab for an addiction to painkillers. In today’s announcement, Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch said “Bob was missed by many fans of The Five and we’re happy to
Donald Trump has lashed out at outgoing CIA chief John Brennan, and questioned whether he was responsible for leaking the Russian dossier. Brennan had earlier told the president-elect to watch what he says, suggesting he doesn´t understand the threats posed by Moscow. But Trump fired back on Twitter on Sunday night. He wrote: ´Was this the leaker of Fake News?´ The jab was a reference to a recent intelligence briefing that raised questions about Trump´s connections to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Scroll down for video (Photos/Tweets) The CIA director said in an interview on Sunday morning on Fox News that
Michelle Obama´s choice of clothes has had an enormous impact on American and the world, the New York Times tells us. Consider that for five and a half years there was a blog chronicling Mrs. Obama’s wardrobe choices, arguably the first devoted to the clothes of a political figure, and that when Mr. Obama wore a tan suit to a news conference it practically broke the internet (ditto when he eschewed a tie). Consider that Mrs. Obama’s effect on fashion brands was the subject of a study by a New York University professor in the Harvard Business Review entitled “How
