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.
Crowds of people have gathered to protest against an off-duty officer who was caught on camera almost shooting a 13-year-old who he was scuffling with outside his home. Protesters were seen in videos posted on social media shouting, ´whose streets, our streets,´ ´don´t shoot our kids,´ ´shame on you,´ and ´no justice, no peace, f*** the police.´ Aerial footage from the scene from KTLA showed the crowd of people, as well as a swarm of police cruisers in the area. It came after the video, which was was filmed on Tuesday afternoon in Anaheim, California, near Loara High School about
Yeah, there’s a lot of political stuff swirling the various news feeds. However, it’s worth watching the CNN debate tonight between Tom Perez and Keith Ellison for DNC Chairmanship. The actual DNC voting will take place on Saturday February 25th. The long term future of the Democrat party is being fought amid two distinct constituencies. The establishment wing of the Democrat Party, represented by Perez; and the more insurgent wing of the party apparatus represented by Ellison. (Photos) While there is a considerable amount of cross-over between the two ideological camps, essentially the direction the Democrat party will take in
The seven candidates for chair of the Democratic National Committee laid out their plans to lead the political party, including impeaching President Trump - a rallying cry even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said is not yet warranted. One of the top contenders in the race, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., cited examples of actions Trump has taken in his first month in office that are worthy of being fired as commander in chief. "I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment. On day one, he was in violation
Mediaite was the first to draw attention yesterday to a questionable statement of fact made by longtime White House correspondent April Ryan. Ryan told Sean Spicer that while on the campaign trial, Donald Trump “said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,’ meaning white America, not necessarily black.” When Spicer denied he had said any such thing, Ryan insisted, “No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that.” Looking back at that piece yesterday, I gave Ryan the benefit of the doubt. I thought she perhaps had made a mistake and this would be quickly corrected. I
Confronting a national debt that nearly doubled under President Obama, President Trump said Wednesday he inherited a federal budget “mess” and vowed to force Washington to stop wasting taxpayers’ money. “The finances of our country are a mess, but we’re going to clean them up,” the president told reporters. “We won’t let your money be wasted anymore. We must do a lot more with less.” Preparing for a prime-time address to Congress next week, Mr. Trump met with budget officials and said he will unveil his first proposed budget, a retooled plan to replace Obamacare, and a tax-reform package over
State Rep. La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago) said he is drafting legislation that would rename the majority of Interstate 55 in Illinois as the “Barack Obama Expressway.” According to a statement from his office, Ford will propose renaming the stretch of the expressway from the Tri-State Tollway to East St. Louis. “Renaming I-55 for President Barack Obama would not only be an honor for America’s 44th president, but it will be the right measure we should approve for Illinois’ very own state Senator and U.S. Senator,” Ford said in a statement. Between the Tri-State and Lake Shore Drive, the expressway bears
Entire San Jose neighborhoods were submerged by water on Wednesday during the worst floods for 100 years. 50,000 people were told to flee their homes after evacuation warnings were issued in the early hours of the morning. Most were issued a flood warning but for 14,000 the order was mandatory. The flooding began when Coyote Creek, which runs through Silicone Valley from the San Francisco Bay, burst its banks on Tuesday night. It sent dirty water pouring in to the towns below it at frightening pace. On Wednesday, residents complained that the alert had not been sent out fast enough. Some
This week, thousands of conservatives will travel to the nation’s capital for the 43rd annual Conservative Political Action Conference. The four-day conference, hosted by the American Conservative Union, will be centered around the first three words of the U.S. Constitution, with the theme being “We the People: Reclaiming America’s Promise.” “We have to restore government of the people by the people and for the people because that is ultimately the question that this American experiment is asking, can people govern themselves,” American Conservative Union Executive Director Dan Schneider told The Daily Signal.According to Schneider, the theme, “We the People,” was
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) spent part of his tour of the U.S-Mexico border on Wednesday with Border Patrol officials on horseback. Video surfaced Wednesday afternoon showing Ryan riding a horse during his visit to the southwestern border; the Speaker did not appear to be wearing a riding helmet. (Video) Ryan also toured the Rio Grande and surrounding areas with Homeland Security officials by boat and helicopter. He’s also expected to visit the McAllen Border Control Station, which patrols 53 miles of the Rio Grande. Several other members of Congress are also visiting the border this week while the House and
A THR and National Research Group survey reveals how little the average moviegoing citizen knows about this year´s Oscars. Yes, you read that headline correctly — come hell or high water, six out of 10 Americans could not name a single best picture nominee, according to a new poll commissioned by The Hollywood Reporter that canvassed moviegoers on both sides of the political fence. But, hidden in the figures, there is some good news for the Academy: Seven in 10 respondents say they’ll be watching the Oscars anyway. (Video) THR’s poll — conducted by the National Research Group, which in
Ivanka Trump took daughter Arabella to the Supreme Court of the United States on Wednesday morning for a field trip that was both fun and educational. Arabella, 5, not only got to take a look around the building but also got to watch as oral arguments were being made in a case before the eight justices who are currently on the bench. Ivanka later posted a photo of her visit to the Supreme Court with Arabella, who was carrying a goose-feather quill, and wrote about how exciting it was to give her daughter a firsthand look at the branch of
Yesterday white house correspondent April Ryan (American Urban Radio) made a stunning accusation against the Trump administration by claiming President Trump “said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,’ meaning white America, not necessarily black.” When Press Secretary Sean Spicer denied he had said any such thing, Ms. April Ryan insisted: “No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that.” She later stated on twitter it was during a March 2016 campaign rally. The campaign speech Ms. Ryan references is the one just after the cancelled Chicago rally where Bernie Sander activists turned violent. This is an
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., predicted Tuesday that many Republican lawmakers will break from President Trump by June if he continues to push forward with his agenda. Schumer told "The View" that while most Republicans have declined to publicly break with Trump during the first month of his presidency, many privately admit they have "real problems" with him. He also argued that some are sticking by him because of party loyalty and his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia´s seat on the Supreme Court. "When you talk to Republicans quietly — in the cloakroom
Fox News announced the signing of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel as a healthcare and policy analysis contributor on Tuesday. Along with Jonathan Gruber, Emanuel is best known for being one of the “architects” of the Affordable Care Act. He currently serves as chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and is a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. He will reportedly appear on both Fox News and Fox Business Network.
A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina
A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
(Video) MSNBC´s Mika Brzezinski criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday for undermining the media´s message by creating his own facts, adding that the "job" of the media is to "control exactly what people think." Brzezinski made the comment on "Morning Joe" after co-host Joe Scarborough said that he agreed with a panelist´s view that Trump supporters are wondering why people are so upset over what the president is doing since he is implementing exactly what he campaigned on. "What Yamiche [Alcindor] said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to, who were Trump voters and
AmeriCorps sounded like a good idea. Create a program where American youth could basically earn free college by working and helping their communities. On the surface -- and if you don´t understand the inherent issue with any government program -- it sounds like a great way to help people get their educations. The program -- which never reached the level its creator Bill Clinton envisioned -- now finds itself on the chopping block along with other left-wing darlings such as the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. College officials are freaking out: The Trump administration is circulating
In San Francisco, an Indian software engineer on a work permit canceled plans to bid on a $900,000 home. In Washington, a Brazilian nonprofit executive passed on a fixer-upper near her office. And, in Mesa, Arizona, a 24-year-old son of undocumented Mexican immigrants won the trust of a bank -- a green light for a mortgage -- but now fears deportation. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies threaten to crack a foundation of the American economy: the residential real estate market. Legal and otherwise, immigrants, long a pillar of growth in homebuying, are no longer feeling the warm welcome and optimism
Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D., Ca.) says the darndest things. Since President Trump won the election, Rep. Waters has not hesitated to be an outspoken critic of his administration. She refused to go to his inauguration, stated publicly that she doesn´t want to work with him, called him a dictator, and even called for his impeachment less than a month into his presidency. Here are some of the unusual things Waters has said since the election: (Snip) 3. When she called Trump and his aides a bunch of ‘s*umbags.´ "This is a bunch of s*umbags. That´s what they are." 4. Waters
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.” (Yes, co-host Gayle King used the word “citizen.”) Talking to USA Today bureau chief Susan Page, Anthony Mason worried, “This could create a climate of fear in the immigrant community, if it hasn´t already.” Page agreed, “I think it has.” She justified, “Remember that two-thirds of illegal immigrants have been here at least a decade. So, they´re really part of the fabric of our life. Although, admittedly, they´re here illegally.” King insisted, “But they´ve been
The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. (Snip) That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less. To be clear, all white voters matter. But Democrats must make tough, data-driven decisions about how to prioritize their work. Right now, too many are using bad math and
A lesbian named Ash Fisher surprised herself by falling in love with a man! Even though she is in a relationship with him, however, she still maintains she is a lesbian. I have a femme tattoo on my arm, which was sticked-and-poked by a fellow queer on another queer´s couch during Pride. I run a queer feminist comedy show called "Man Haters." Much of my standup act revolves around my queerness. Basically, I´m super gay. Before meeting him, I identified not just as queer, but as a dyke.
