Mattis: ‘Everything I Love About America
is Resident’ in John McCain

The Weekly Standard, by Jrnna Lifhits

Top Trump administration officials and Republican lawmakers offered heartfelt tributes to John McCain Tuesday night at the International Republican Institute’s annual freedom dinner, striking a marked contrast to the continued controversy facing the White House over its handling of a crude closed-door joke about the Arizona senator. “Tonight, there is a man standing here right beside me, and you and I can see him in our mind’s eye,” said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, one of the Freedom Award recipients. “He’s a giant, in my mind, of American public life. He leads steadfastly, nothing can diminish him, he steadfastly represents the best

The dinner was a feel-goodtribute to a dying man. What could they say? Words. Make his family feel better. Then move on.

Relax. General Mattis does not disparage a dying person with whom he may not always agree.

Mega dittos #1 That hateful, wretched old coot has been mentioned more in the last month than in the entire year. I find it amazing that he has remained completely untarnished considering the fact that it is he who was instrumental in initiating the fraudulent Russia collusion investigation by Mueller. It its noted that his name is NEVER associated with that horrific disaster. Instead of being scorned he is suddenly revered just because he is now dying. He doesn´t deserved to be honored because of his duplicity.

Note the organization and the fact (in the article) that McCain was chairman of the organization for a long time.

I was not a fan of his, but there are times and places to register criticism. This dinner was clearly not the place. To criticize those who were there for doing the appropriate thing shows us to be gratuitously meanspirited. What point is there in that?

Mattis is a General. The one thing I learned about Generals when I was in the service and from my intense reading of history is, they use entirely different brain waves than everyone else. I´ll let him pass on this one because it does not matter one jot what is said, nothing will ever change what evil McCain has done.

a rose by any other name is still a rose.
and the character of John McCain is still that of John McCain. Some things, a spoken word or deed cannot be undone.
John McCain is a loathsome American. He has single handedly dismantled any honor he may have had as a service person and former POW.
The most human feeling I have for him is pity.

No one is saying Trump´s Def. Sec. should criticize McCain. However moderation is called for since McCain has been the loudest voice for decades for harming the people he´s supposed to be serving. He single handedly enabled the unwinnable foreign wars industry for which US taxpayers must pay, lose limbs, and die. He has caused more permanent human misery than any single human being in recent decades (eg Libya). The US Unwinnable War Industry is now well entrenched and controls the fed. gov. If McCain were a democrat, no one would be talking about him. He also made it impossible for the US to have the functioning two party system it desperately needs. With today´ one party system there are no checks and balances, ie , a dictatorship.

The article is from the Weekly Standard, which renders it highly suspect. I do agree that it would be inappropriate to disparage McCain in public remarks at an occasion of this nature. It is even more inappropriate to praise the lying weasel. To my mind, the best course of action would been to have simply avoided the event and say nothing.

Ain´t it great? A guy can fudge his way into the Naval Academy based on his Father and Grandfather´s high places. Then, a guy can come in second to dead last in the rankings, get a commission to fly, get shot down, kill some other navy guys in a foolish stunt, be recognized as a war hero. Dump your wife for a younger, richer woman. Declare war on his own party, cozy us to that fat-ass Teddy Kennedy, cozy up to Charles Keating, a money-man, run a weak presidential campaign and blame the loss on a woman who is twice the man that he is or ever will be, and then sit back and pontificate like a pompous noble. America is the land of opportunity.

He steadfastly represents the classic symptoms of selfishness egotistical self-centered obsession and a resentment against Trump and hatred of this country typical in an old man suffering from the progressive and fatal disease of alcoholism. I guess it would be tasteless and un-Officer like for him to bad mouth McMuffin, so he takes the high road and praises him, but we really know the rest of the story.

The open primary for the California governor’s race is coming up in a couple of weeks and there’s a packed field of no less than 27 candidates on the ballot. At the moment, the two top contenders appear to be the former mayors of Los Angeles and San Francisco, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and state Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa. There’s one Republican within spitting distance of making it into the general election, John Cox, but he remains a long-shot at best. These folks are all out on the campaign trail and the Democrats are all competing to demonstrate which one of them hates President Trump the most and will be the

Comcast honchos want to replace embattled NBC News Chairman Andy Lack by the end of the year after a series of public relations debacles have tarnished the news division’s once-sterling reputation, Fox News has learned. A well-placed insider with firsthand knowledge of the conversations told Fox News that Comcast CEO Brian Roberts and NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke aren’t happy with the way Lack, 70, has handled all the negative attention the company has received in recent months and have decided to make a change. However, the situation will take “a while” to play out, as Comcast executives are reluctant to rock

The First Saudi-Iranian War
Will Be an Even Fight
Foreign Policy, by Ashfon Ostovar    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 5/8/2018 6:45:06 PM     Post Reply
Since 2011, first in Syria and then in Yemen, proxy forces of Iran and Saudi Arabia have been in constant, brutal competition. Both sides seem to have concluded that a direct war isn’t in their interest, with neither having ever directly attacked the other. But there has always been a risk of escalation — and that risk will heighten dramatically on Tuesday if President Donald Trump withdraws from the Iran nuclear deal, as seems likely. That could lead to an increase in military provocations by Iran in the region, and embolden any Saudi response. It’s far easier to assess the likelihood of direct conflict between Tehran and Riyadh,

Why John Kasich Should Run
as an Independent in 2020
Real Clear Politics, by Morton Kondracke    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 5/3/2018 6:05:49 PM     Post Reply
The reform movement fueled by political centrists is getting stronger all over the country, but it needs a heavyweight 2020 Independent presidential candidate to gain national traction and big-time financial backing. Ohio Gov. John Kasich ought to take up that challenge. He can’t get the nomination of his own party. Although he’s a lifelong Republican who won statewide in a key battleground state the GOP needs to win the presidency, he’s become much too moderate, not to mention high-principled and independent, for the party.

President says he´s considering a posthumous pardon for boxing´s first black heavyweight champion more than 100 years after the late Jack Johnson was convicted by all-white jury of accompanying a white woman across state lines. Trump announced Saturday on Twitter that the actor , a friend of his, had called to bring Johnson´s story to his attention. "His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial," Trump wrote from his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. "Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!"

Mike Pompeo is qualified to be secretary of state. There is no doubt about that. He is competent — as director of the CIA, he has managed a complex organization deftly, winning the respect of intelligence professionals otherwise not favorably inclined to President Trump. He is experienced — in an administration with more than its share of neophytes, he has served in Washington, initially as a congressman, since 2011. He is highly credentialed — he graduated top of his class at West Point and went to Harvard Law School, where he edited the Harvard Law Review.

Pope Francis has reportedly told a gay man that "God made you that way and loves you as you are," apparently pushing the pontiff´s acceptance of homosexuality to a new level. Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais. Cruz was quoted as having discussed his homosexuality with Francis. "He told me: ´Juan Carlos, I

Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was
