‘Outraged’ Americans Disgusted With
Hyper-Politicized McCain Funeral

Gateway Pundit, by Cristina Laila

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 9/1/2018 8:15:48 PM

Americans were outraged Saturday after John McCain’s funeral turned into a Trump bashing session. Speaker after speaker, from Meghan McCain, to George W. Bush, to Barack Obama took turns to rip President Trump in words of anger. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were in attendance. They looked sad and embarrassed at the nonstop abuse. Meghan McCain took the occasion of her father’s death to slam President Trump numerous times Saturday in Washington DC. What a sad and petty woman.

The astounding thing to me was the political jibes throughout a (sort of) church service with at the same time an unending reference to honor, kindness, civility, etc. Do these people believe it was decent to hurt and insult Ivanka’s father and our President on LIVE TV for two hours?

Appears it will be turned into a new TV series. I feel sorry for Megan, her mom, and sisters. But he made it to 81 and lots of people I care about didn´t. When Strom Thurman, Ted Kennedy, etc. departed this planet we didn´t get this big a show. Expect T Shirts saying I was at President McCain´s Big Sendoff. I mean no disrespect to the dead. But enough is enough.

A point well taken is that a lot of $´s doesn´t buy class.
Just check out the list of people who were in attendance. The Clintons, the Obamas, the Bushes. I think I saw a picture of Al Gore
(the sex poodle) also there...all people with tons of mun, but very short on class.
It´s probably a good thing Sarah Palin was not in attendance. She is wayyyy too good to be in that mix. Isn´t it ironic?

Fake people, attending a contrived political event packaged as a funeral, reported on by the fake media masquerading as a "free press."
You would think that W would know and avoid the equivalent of the "Wellstone" experience that he endured, show some class and not be part of of a wellstone event for PDJT. Unless W thought it would even the score for runt bro Heb.

Outraged is far too strong a word, and it is overused. I´ve been annoyed at the "all McCain all the time" reporting and hope it ends soon.
As for the speakers, I feel nothing about them. They are phonies being phoney. Nothing more. We should save our outrage for something deserving of it and quit wasting it on dumb stuff.

If this was not the ruling class or the true swamp rubbing this in our faces, I don’t know what it could be. I agree that we are enraged and we will make our marks in the mud-terms. McCain was the epitome of deep state and the swamp. All those who called him racists in 2008 were there praising him this week, just to spite Trump.

Ordinarily, I would have watched since I love gothic Cathedrals and the beauty of such services. Knowing how classless and vindictive McLame was, I knew his service would be a political snide fest. I didn´t watch, but I´m glad this week-long clown and fool circus is drawing to a close and he will soon be planted and forgotten by all his liberal/elitist "friends" once he can no longer be used to score points against PDJT.

McCain “halted medical treatments” four days short of his next birthday and “succumbed” the following day. Hillary’s birthday is coming up soon (October 26). Imagine the “celebration of life” the leftist media could put together for her with two and a half months to prepare.

I think very few people really cared about McCain or watched this media created spectacle. Democrats don´t care about McCain, and anyway are too self-involved to give up their Saturday on a holiday weekend, and Republicans are mad at McCain for a number of very legitimate reasons. Probably the never-Trumpers watched, and the weak minded who still like Obama and still haven´t realized that Obama waxes eloquent without ever actually saying anything (you can never remember what he said even a day later).

#2- A valid observation—political jibes throughout a church service. It is beyond comprehension how anyone, at anytime, out of reverence for God, would think to use a sanctuary for a political platform. Beyond that, do people not know, or do they reject, what Scripture has to say about God selecting heads of nations?(Haggai2:20-23; 1 Chronicles14:2; Daniel2:21, 4:17; Romans13:1-2; Revelation1:4-5) Do these people not understand that their rage, against a man who has done nothing wrong, who fairly won the 2016 presidential election, rage against a man that God has put in place? Granted, there are times when God allows evil men come to power, and their actions make clear that they are evil as they violate God’s laws; however, President Trump is not an evil man; he is a successful business man who has provided lovingly and abundantly for his family, is a quiet philanthropist, and wears his patriotism on his sleeve. Do these people not care about President Trump’s family members? Do these people not fear “the day” when they will be held accountable for their deeds? “Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.” (1 John 2:9)

Over the top. We turned in the TV at 8 AM and there was the funeral. We tuned out. Near noon we wanted to watch the local news. The funeral was still in full swing - we listened to the choir a bit and then the camera panned to the former presidents. We turned it off.

This is the ruling elite spitting in our faces and in some ways it is a good thing. Just like the media has gone insane with TDS and we have learned that they have gone from silly to completely deranged, so this exposed the entrenched elite culture that feels entitled to rule the country. We can see their disdain and hatred. We can see that there is no difference or division between dem elite and Republican elite. They think America "has been" great even though many of its citizens have been ignored. That´s NOT so great and they just told us THEY don´t care. All they want is for us to bow to them.

It´s good to know WHO and WHAT they are. In their own words from their own mouths.

Our own nomenklatura ruling class cannot accept their loss of power. while I knew we were being governed by people who considered themselves to be our betters, I was not aware of the scope of deep state corruption. Trump has opened the door and the cockroaches are scurrying around. I was not a Trump supporter at first, but now I say a prayer for him every day. He is just one man, I don´t know how he can take it.

Ronald Reagan´s Eleventh Commandment was:
"Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican."

And John McVain always claimed to have started out in politics as a "foot soldier for Ronald Reagan," but in his political life he became an uncontrolled arrogant and evil monster within the GOP. He violated Reagan´s 11th commandment time and time again through word and deed, and is therefore anathema to Conservatives.

The world won´t miss you McVain.

These reprobates turned a scripted funeral in to a political bashing of our president. In November let´s turn the election into a political bloodbath for the Democrat party. We must assure that no Democrat or RINO get´s elected to any political office in this great country. McCain by his death may have united those that he despised most, conservatives and independent voters.

It is a shame and an eternally dreadful thing to die with so much hatred and unforgiveness in heart and mind.

Too bad he had so much debased company in his last days, who could not or did not counsel or did not want to counsel him out of his vengefulness.

He could have died a real giant of a man, rather than as a withered old bitter crank.

Can´t sleep so I´m watching it now. Can´t believe, 2i/2 hours in, and there has yet to be a scripture reading. They are not even following the order of the Episcopal prayer book. Megan was an embarrassment . Now the eldest daughter gives a brief scripture reading. and they will sing How Great Thou Art, which I guess at this point is a hymn to John McCain.

I was fully prepared to feel some sadness but what a phony show this has been.

Truly, I suspect that President Trump knows something about the late Senator that would be devastating to his already tarnished reputation if known. McCain got over losing to Bush and Obama, but he can´t get over Trump? What gives?

Shame, shame shame on all those egotistical swamp creatures who used the opportunity of this funeral to pump themselves up.

I was aware of what this funeral would be like because there were many articles describing who would be left out. I’d never heard of people being ‘invited’ to a funeral, but I was most taken aback when I saw that Sarah Palin, his running mate in 2008, was left off the list. That was not an oversight, but a deliberate act of meanness, and nastiness. Of course, by treating our president, a man off his own own political party, with open contempt, will automatically backfire! It’s as if he had called us Trump supporters “deplorables” again. We will not forget that vindictive, rancorous, and revengeful behavior, shown at a ‘funeral’ in the name of McCain, for ages to come. It only sealed what kind of man he was in real life.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Boston - The former chief executive of Insys Therapeutics Inc (INSY.O) pleaded guilty on Wednesday to participating in a nationwide scheme to bribe doctors to prescribe an addictive opioid medication and has agreed to become a government witness. Michael Babich, who resigned as the Arizona-based drugmaker’s CEO in 2015, pleaded guilty in federal court in Boston to conspiracy and mail fraud charges after entering into a cooperation deal with prosecutors. His plea comes less than three weeks before five former Insys executives and managers including John Kapoor, its onetime billionaire founder and former chairman, face trial after being charged with participating in

Ginsburg’s absence for the past three days and recent health issues have fueled speculation about her future on the high court.

President Donald Trump indicated he may be declaring a national emergency in order to get funding for the border wall. Following his Oval Office address to the nation on Tuesday, the president said he has the “absolute right” to declare an emergency and noted that his “threshold” for doing so would be if he is unable to reach an agreement with “people who are unreasonable,” presumably referring to congressional Democrats who will not agree to his request for $5.7 billion for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “I think we might work a deal, and if we don’t, I might go that

(snip) The president said he has the “absolute right” to declare an emergency, even though some legal scholars and Democratic lawmakers say he does not. Trump added that his “threshold” for declaring a national emergency is if he cannot reach a deal with congressional Democrats, who have rejected his demand for $5.7 billion for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

A Friday-published Washington Post opinion editorial — written by Molly Roberts and entitled “What so wrong with motherf***er?” — dismisses criticisms of Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) derision of President Donald Trump as a “motherf****r,” framing concerns of “civility” as manifestations of “linguistic timidity.” At a Thursday evening MoveOn.org-hosted event in Washington, DC, hours after her swearing-in ceremony as a congresswoman, Tlaib said, “We’re going to go in and impeach the motherf**ker.” (Tweet) Roberts praises Tlaib — a self-described “democratic socialist” aligned with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Crotez (D-NY) — for articulating a “cogent case” of “the country in crisis” via

The House of Representatives Thursday approved a bill that would fund most of the federal government through early February -- and provides $5.7 billion for President Trump´s long-promised border wall, increasing the chances of a partial government shutdown later this week. Eight Republicans joined all 177 voting Democrats to oppose the measure, which passed 217-185. The bill now goes to the Senate, where it is certain to fall short of the 60 votes needed for passage since the chamber´s 49 Democrats are against funding the wall. That, in turn, makes it more likely that parts of the federal government, including nine

President Donald Trump said France’s new round of violent protests showed the Paris climate accord “isn’t working out so well” as thousands of “yellow vests” clashed with police Saturday. “The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning as France prepared for another wave of violent protests in Paris over President Emmanuel Macron’s policies. “Protests and riots all over France. People do not want to pay large sums of money, much to third world countries (that are questionably run), in order to maybe protect the environment. Chanting ‘We Want Trump!’ Love France,” Trump tweeted.

Nobody is as insignificant in the Washington pecking order as a freshman member of Congress just off the turnip truck and into a maelstrom of ignorance and uncertainty all about him. One member of a freshman class of not so long ago recalls arriving at Reagan National Airport, finding his way through the terminal maze to curbside, and hailing a taxi. “I want to go to the Capitol,” the new greenhorn in town told the cabbie. “OK,” the cabbie said, “if you know how to get there.” New congressmen have learned the way, and with familiar expectations.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

"The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. "The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right.

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to
