And the Paul Wellstone
Memorial Award Goes To...

PJ Media, by Matt Margolis

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/2/2018 5:00:13 AM

I don’t mean to sound self-centered, but I hope that at my funeral, whoever delivers the eulogy will talk about me, and not their or my political enemies. It’s not much to ask, but frankly, I’d like to believe there’s more to me than the people I’ve had feuds with. Not since the Paul Wellstone funeral have I been so disgusted at the gross politicization of a memorial service. Wellstone, you might remember, was the U.S. senator who died in a plane crash in 2002 less than two weeks before the midterm elections.

McCain´s funeral was all but class. it was tacky, disgusting and entirely too long. If I had my way, it would have lasted 30 minutes, tops. President Trumps daughter and son in law had to listen to the garbage that was said about our President.

As for Aretha´s funeral, it was also tacky. I never heard of changing outfits of a dead person multiply times. Then you have entertainment, a minister with his hands all over the entertainer, and people bashing our great president.

Did not both listening to either one.

Four worthless individuals in that first photograph -
One Sunni Muslim who believes he was captured by ETs and taken up to their spaceship, who hates Whitey more than Barack does. Next to Louis X is another white hater and Korean hater, who killed people by inciting a riot. Next to him is a shameless race hustler who should be in prison for blackmailing corporations, playing the race card.
Finally,, the biggest race hustler and sexual predator of all, Dollar Bill Clinton, who has accumulated more wealth than John D. Rockefeller, tax free! And Ethics free!
Aretha was not well served by their presence.

They already held the funerals and I missed them both? Crud! I was so busy working in the yard... Oh well, maybe Hillary, Chuck or Nancy’s send-off extravaganzas will happen when the weather isn’t so good.

What kind of man plans every detail of their own very elaborate, far-reaching, many-location funeral, including who should not be invited? A man overly concerned with his own ego and image, that´s who. If we didn’t already know, we now know what kind of man McCain was.

My mom died of brain cancer and it was devastating to watch her go through it. She did it gracefully and I saw her cry once and it was in the last days of her life.

I have watched and listened to John McCain since he was diagnosed and there was nothing graceful about the way he handled himself.

I could cry "life is unfair" because a senator gets all this attention but a person like my mom receives none. I don´t.

As I said in my first paragraph, she handled herself gracefully. Never once did she say, "why me" or become angry that she was ill. If I needed to cry, I did it privately but on one occasion, I couldn´t stop the tears. She turned to me and said, "it is my turn to go." She died two months later.

I think Democrats, liberals, and Never Trumpers could learn a lot from my mom. They always want the focus on themselves.

The only difference between these two funerals and one conducted for an Egyptian Pharoah is that the latter was done with far more dignity.....

I confess I started hearing Meghan McCain speaking on a news cast. After only a few seconds of listening to her, I turned it and any other newscasts off yesterday. Watched none of the other coverage. Also did not see any of AF´s coverage, just the picture of Peyronie Pete ogling the singer. Didn´t James Brown change outfits a few times during his burial service?

Honestly, did you´all expect anything less? This was their big moment to dump on President Donald Trump with full coverage by the media. These people have no shame ( and no love of the American people) so why would anyone think a funeral , which is supposed to be dignified ,be anything less than a combination lie about the deceased/trash President Trump gathering.

I didn´t waste my valuable time watching the McCain spectacle as I never considered him a statesman, but just another petty politician that loved being the center of attention. And two things that really showed us just how petty he could be was saying that picking Sarah Palin as his running mate was a big mistake and making sure she wasn´t invited to his funeral and also making sure president Trump wasn´t invited.

I’m surprised the McCain funeral doesn’t continue until the day after the next election. It gives all nutty leftists a chance to be on national TV and pretend they gave a rat’s butt about a Republican., the same guy they heavily denounced in 2008.

#6 Thank you for sharing your mother´s story. She died with dignity and love. McStain could never achieve that. He planned his funeral road show to stab Trump and the American people to the end. No matter the eulogies, the holy water and the lies said at the pulpit will erase what he really was in life: a traitor and a vindictive petty man full of hate knowing full well that "We the People" didn´t fall for his actions. His final judgement won´t be pretty.

When McCain gets to his Final Judgement with the Creator, he´s going to wish that he´d acted like a Christian and a true Republican during his tenure as a Senator, rather than a bitter old "reach across the aisle traitor" to his stated beliefs?

Poor McCain could have really went out in a true blaze of glory, so to speak, if he weren´t just a Phony, right up to his passing?

This was the most over done obnoxious and phony drama I have ever seen out of Washington. McCain was no saint and dying certainly didn’t make him one. He was an arrogant self righteous fool who hated Trump enough to build his own funeral around him. His daughter is talentless and obviously had to lean on Daddy’s position to get a high profile job. Hoping her career dies with him.

I hope McCain´s "esteem colleagues from across the aisle" enjoyed their spectacle with the bitter family. I liked the statement a ´funeral for an Egyptian Pharaoh´ that about sums up McCain´s never ending service.
If McCain planned all of this before he died why all the changing of locations? Who did he think he was, Lincoln?
The old Republican backstabbing vulture is gone and hope soon forgotten. Good riddance.

I am just a little surprised that whoever planned this farce got permission to so completely downplay the liturgical aspect of a traditional Episcopalian service. This affair was a disgrace.

As for the Franklin affair, it looked to me like some of the clergy actually were concerned about what was happening in church. But they were definitely in the minority.

On a positive note. President Trump is beating the Left so badly that he is living permanently in their heads and driving them mad. When you are winning so much, it´s tough to focus on the little gnats that follow you around hoping to get in a small bite. MAGA. The pettiness shown at the McCain funeral, most of it instrumented by the corpse himself, is akin to howling at the moon. It accomplishes nothing but it makes them feel better.

Let me start by posting this definition: "eu·lo·gy
a speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly, typically someone who has just died."

Now on to my take (glad I didn´t bother to watch either) - The LEFT should be proud that they followed alsharpton´s advice and showed typical leftist R*E*S*P*I*C*T for their heroes. I gave over twenty years service in the United States Army for my country and American citizens - PROUDLY! A "hero" is someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty to save fellow soldiers lives, NOT someone who can crash an airplane and then get fed hot meals during imprisonment simply because his Dad was an Admiral.

The left (former democrat party) is so filled with for all that is good about America that they are blinded by their hatred!

Whether I liked them or not, my thoughts for their funerals is a simply "God Bless Them and Their Families" - and May God Continue to Bless America!

I will remember John MCCain for his thumbs down at midnight that assured the continued existence of the disastrous ObamaCare.

Songbird was also nasty to Dubya at every turn, promoted the civil wars in Syria and Libya, and passed the anti-Republican McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill that, incredibly, Dubya signed. Not to forget that McCain personally handed a copy of Clinton Steele Dossier to James Comey. A small man driven by envy. MAGA.

McPain’s cancerous growth was said to be in the frontal lobe of his brain. One wonders how it controlled his behavior for a long time before it was disclosed:

Damage to the frontal lobe can cause increased irritability, which may include a change in mood and an inability to regulate behavior.

Now, what excuse do all those mourner/speakers have?

The McCain Family, with Cindy McCain at the helm, carried out John McCain´s wishes for this horrible spectacle - so, they are just as classless and crummy as he was, IMHO - all the trappings of wealth and they come across as hollow, trashy grifters in their total lack of class.

Regarding the late Aretha Franklin - I never heard of outfits being changed like that. Is this a new thing?

I can see an entirely new career path opening up: funeral planners!

Oh, I know the funeral homes have people who help you orchestrate a basic funeral but the Aretha Franklin funeral could signal an entirely new dimension.

Plus, you could have reality shows like the shows they have currently now with gals picking out their wedding gowns - the search for the wardrobe for the week of the funeral!

"Bridezillas" producer - call your agent!

Gruesome, I know - but I can see a movie in the making, "The Funeral Planner" and soemone WILL make it!

I remember the Wellstone affair. Desperate to hold on the the seat, the Dems got Fritz Mondale to take the seat until the election. He lost the seat. He had also lost to Reagan in a landslide, wining only DC and his home state of Minnesota. This time he completed the sweep by losing Minnesota´s senate seat.

I was no fan of McCain and admired Sarah Palin. Decided not to watch or give ear to any part of it after hearing that she was not invited to his funeral. Given that she has never publicly denigrated, criticized or demeaned him, I thought that was unnecessarily mean and cruel. If he/his family thought he lost the election because of her, they are sorely mistaken. He lost because he was a weak candidate with nothing to offer the American people. He lost me after he told his supporters not to be afraid of B/0 because he is a "family man" - completely ignoring all of the lies, deceit, radical associates, secretive behaviour and controversies surrounding his opponent. What kind of a serious candidate for anything extols the virtues (real or imagined) of an opponent and not his own??

I did not watch most of the Franklin funeral either. Thought the change of clothes was unusual. However, the family wanted the funeral services which were open to the public, to reflect her personal style. Supposedly she never performed in the same outfit twice.

Performers in the snippets that I chose to watch on the net sang many of the songs from her album "Amazing Grace." If you love black gospel music, this outstanding recording has stood the test of time.

No Vietnam buddies speaking...just politicians and media.I kept thinking every few minutes that they would wind it down, but it kept going like the Energizer Bunny. I shut it off mid Meghan speech - could not stand any more bashing self-indulgence.

If there was ANY Vietnam vets up speaking at any part of this, someone please tell me, if you watched it all. I saw none, any of the days, for the periods I watched and overheard commentary on Fox.

I did feel badly for his mother, at 106, burying her son.

I don´t count John Kerry in any vet category - he did not suffer one iota.

I mean people who served with McCain that still remain. Did not hear anything good about the man from many of them over the years, but obviously, none were invited. Kerry was the token sort-of VVet.

McCain really sealed his legacy. Now, anyone that recalls this little man will think of a classless, petty, vindictive person who could have shown grace and dignity but chose neither. Sarah Palin showed more dignity and class in the one paragraph statement she made than he did in the last five years he pranced before the cameras. This man was eaten up with jealousy and self pity long before the cancer finished him off. I believe President Trump´s assessment of McCain´s character was spot on.

Churchill spent the lost years leading to World War II unsuccessfully trying to warn Britannia of the rising Nazi threat. He largely blamed Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, a squishy, slippery foresightless mccainlike member of the Conservative Party, for the locust years of the ´Thirties, specifically, 1934-September 1939, when Hitler invaded Poland, commencing a bloodbath that would claim 65,000,000 lives around the world before the atom bombs brought the cursed thing to a merciful end. It really was merciful. Had we invaded Japan directly, the toll would have been millions more Japanese and hundreds of thousands, at least, of Americans, including my father, who had already lost his eldest brother in 1944: the uncle I never knew. My grandparents never got over losing their first son, the first of three.

Anyway, after Baldwin´s death some mousy "Conservative" came to Churchill and mewled, "Oh, what shall we do without our Stanley?" The great man replied, "Embalm, cremate, bury. Take no chances."

That´s how I feel now. Not only was McCain not great...he was not even very good, a slippery, treacherous little man whose funeral, rivaling Princess Di´s and topping even JFK´s for purple ornate symbolism, lacked only an assassinated president in the box. This whole in-your-blanking-effing-face-Trump-and Trump-supporters affair managed to be in exact inverse measure to the actual importance of the honored stiff. Well this sucks. Afterlife and all.

Trump Can Still Prevail in the Midterms
National Review Online, by Conrad Black    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/21/2018 5:10:10     Post Reply
The current standing of the Democrats in the midterm election polls is a levitation. Their record when they had the administration was poor. Their official leader, former president Obama, bombed with his long-winded, self-serving monotone of historical revision at the University of Illinois two weeks ago and its dreary sequels in Orange County, Calif. He reminded America of why it put Donald Trump in the White House. The Democrats and their helpers have emptied their magazines at the opening of the mid-term campaign. Bob Woodward’s novel is a wet kipper. Let him reveal his transcripts

Monsignor Rossi, Wuerl’s Gay
Mafioso at the Basilica

The other day I received a call from a former Catholic University of America student who recounted episodes of sexual harassment that he suffered at the hands of Monsignor Walter Rossi, the Gay Mafioso whom pederast Cardinal Theodore McCarrick appointed to run the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in 2005. Rossi succeeded another accused gay harasser, (then monsignor, later bishop) Michael Bransfield who is currently under investigation for preying upon men. So in Rossi’s rise we see another case of gay predators promoting and protecting each other. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, one of the premier enablers

The FBI had concerns with the intelligence community’s (IC) January 2017 assessment that the Kremlin interfered in the presidential election with the specific intent of electing President Trump over Hillary Clinton. In newly obtained emails, bureau officials noted there was not enough intelligence to support the January 2017 findings by the CIA which concluded Vladimir Putin meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump, according to a numerous documents and text messages obtained by SaraACarter.com. However, while Strzok, Comey and others were disputing the findings of former CIA Director John Brennan and former DNI Director James Clapper behind closed doors,

Whatever Happens To Kavanaugh,
Feinstein Got Exactly What She Wanted

The leading Democratic figures during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings were presumed 2020 presidential hopefuls Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Both grandstanded to great applause from Democratic partisans, but failed to nick the nomination. The two young guns made a lot of noise, but it was an older, wiser woman who with a single shot turned a hopeless situation for Democrats into a big potential political win. Dianne Feinstein was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1992, the original “year of the woman.” During the previous year, Clarence Thomas had been confirmed to the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON Cameron Kasky became one of the most recognizable faces of the March For Our Lives Movement after he helped raise millions of dollars in a matter of days for a gun-control rally and confronted Sen. Marco Rubio on television after the nation’s deadliest high school shooting. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior spent weeks organizing a massive march in Washington that morphed into a nationwide movement and summer bus tour, with an eye toward the upcoming November election. Now, Kasky is leaving the group. “I’m proud of everything my friends have don

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford´s

Senate interview, sources say

Christine Blasey Ford´s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago, two sources told Fox News on Thursday night. Among the terms: Only members of the committee -- no lawyers -- can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford´s testimony. The requests, some of which appeared to be negotiable, capped a whirlwind

The only question is did he do it?

There’s one relevant question: Did Brett Kavanaugh do what Christine Blasey Ford says he did — or anything like it? To answer that question, the Senate Judiciary Committee has proposed the best course of action: have committee staff, not politicians, question Ford and Kavanaugh under oath, behind closed doors if Ford wishes. But Ford and Democrats don’t want such an inquiry, in part because they want to debate other questions besides Kavanaugh’s actual guilt or innocence. You could see it Tuesday night and Wednesday when libe

´You had your day´- Mike Pompeo rips
John Kerry for refusing to ´get off the stage´

Secretary of Defense Mike Pompeo on Wednesday accused John Kerry and other former Obama administration officials who have met with their counterparts in Iran in an effort to save the nuclear deal of working for their own foreign policy and “not the one that belongs to the United States.” During an interview with the Secretary of State on Wednesday night’s edition of “The Ingraham Angle,” Fox News host Laura Ingraham began with the topic of Kerry’s intervention on the Iran nuclear deal. “Secretary Kerry can’t seem to get off the stage, and you have to,” Pompeo said.

No, global warming isn’t
causing worse hurricanes
New York Post, by Bjorn Lomborg    Original Article

It’s human nature to assign blame for catastrophic events. In medieval times, witches were blamed for weather woes. Trials and burnings increased when weather got worse. In hurricane season today, many find a scapegoat in global warming. Pundits tell us “ignoring the science of climate change will hurt us” (Kristina Ball at NBC) and a Washington Post editorial declares the Trump administration complicit. It’s a familiar drumbeat, recognizable from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Sandy. For years, Al Gore and others emphasized the need to connect extreme weather to climate change to encourage carbon cuts.

GOP senators to Ford: Show up

The overarching message from Republicans Wednesday to Christine Blasey Ford: Show up or we’re heading to a vote.“She said she wanted to appear but if she changes her mind and refuses to appear, there´s not much we can do,” the number two Republican in the Senate, John Cornyn of Texas, said of the California professor who alleges Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they both were in high school. “We can´t force her to do that," Cornyn said.

Polygraph exam taken by Kavanaugh accuser
Christine Ford comes under scrutiny

One day after Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., raised concerns about the polygraph test taken by Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford, her attorney is refusing to comment on who paid for the examination or provide additional details on how it was conducted. And experts contacted by Fox News confirmed that while polygraph examinations can be useful, they are ultimately fallible tools that "can be beaten." Without mentioning any particular instances, one former senior FBI agent said polygraphs would have difficulty detecting deception by sociopaths, psychopaths and committed liars lacking a "conscience."

While recently watching a documentary on the Smithsonian Channel about a 1987 plane crash in California purportedly caused by a deranged passenger, I realized a profound shift had occurred in my accepted wisdom, my “worldview.” During its investigation of the crash, the FBI allegedly found a vital piece of evidence at the scene, which led to them identifying a suspect behind the crash. It dawned on me that I doubted the veracity of both the evidence the FBI supposedly found and of the documentary itself. Then I realized that my doubt was purely a result of everything

Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them.

Eviscerating Kavanaugh: Sen. Feinstein,

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday predicted that President Trump will "wholesale fire people" following November´s midterm elections. "After this election, this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said during an interview on MSNBC´s "The Rachel Maddow Show." Predicting that Trump will "be even more uncontrollable and unaccountable" following the results, Clinton argued that the president will fire people who he believes are "undermining him" and "questioning him." "The president is close to being uncontrollable," she continued. In the wide-ranging interview, Clinton also discussed the recent controversy

A lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has alleged Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when the two of them were in high school, said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Blasey is willing to testify before lawmakers as soon as next week, but ruled out Monday, the date the committee had scheduled for a hearing. In an email to committee staffers obtained by CBS News, Ford´s lawyer Debra Katz wrote that Ford "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.

The Deep State is in an obvious panic mode since President Donald Trump ordered a number of documents relating to the Russia investigation be declassified. Joining the loud choir of those who are pushing for insubordination against the president is former CIA Director John Brennan. (Photo) Appearing on MSNBC on Tuesday, Brennan urged people in the intelligence community to ignore the president’s order. The former CIA head was stripped of his security clearance by Trump in August for his bizarre behavior. “A number of individuals are trying to protect Mr. Trump and abusing their authorities and their powers, whether it

California Gov. Jerry Brown ramped up his criticism of President Trump in an interview that aired Monday--calling the president a “saboteur” in the fight to combat climate change and saying that “something’s got to happen to this guy.” Speaking to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell at an environmental summit in San Francisco last week, Brown tore into Trump for the president’s controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria and urged voters to vote for Democrats in November’s midterm elections in an effort to thwart Trump’s agenda. “We never had a president who was engaged in this kind of

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) says that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who came forward with a sexual assault accusation against Brett Kavanaugh, should not be "bullied" into testifying Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee without an FBI investigation being performed. In an interview with CNN, the Democratic senator says that committee members are bullying Ford by calling for her testimony without the support of corroborating witnesses or an FBI investigation into the credibility of her claim. "I don´t think she should be bullied into this scenario, where it´s a ´he-said, she-said´ when many of the committee members

CNN aired a segment about Stormy Daniels’ new book that described what Donald Trump’s genitals looks like on The Lead with Jake Tapper Tuesday. “Lots of books claim to be tell-alls, but they don’t follow through. Stormy Daniels’ new book about her life is not that book. Wow. She tells all,” Jake Tapper said to introduce the segment. “From the details of her career in porn to, yes, being in bed with the future president of the United States, and even being able to pick certain parts of him out of a lineup–then being threatened to shut up about it.
