The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce
My opinion of McCain has steadily gone down the same as one of the navy planes he was flying. He is useless and can take leave anytime. I won´t miss him. I think he is a mean man although he prefers to be called a Maverick.
Not news - we already know this about McCain. Learning we shouldn´t expect anything more from him. And if ´repeal´ is off the table - what process then, is there for ANYone to resume, bi-partisan or otherwise? Dems plan to tank it as it is. And Republicans have their heads up their butts.
President Trump should state if you don´t pass this your exemption from it will end and so will the subsidies. Let the Democrats like Schumer and McCain embrace the full effects of that odious legislation and show the American people what they really passed! So far the Republicans have done everything possible to soften the financial impact of "The Affortable Care Act" on the public. Time to end the fairy tale that the Feds can lower healthcare costs.
Speaking of the Subsidies, WHY have they NOT been cut off? Trump should do it now. Why should WE, THE TAXPAYERS, pay for their Healthcare when they can´t FIX it so that everyone can afford it? What´s wrong with that picture!! As for McCain, what a Legacy he will leave! Voting NO! Being a "Maverick"! I think his Legacy will be he´s a nasty, mean old man who should have retired a long time ago. He´s only there to cause trouble! Shame on him!
This is unprecedented! Rarely do you get to see a piece of Crap turn into a Maggot. And it transforms into a Fly that thrives around a bunch of CRAPs. McCain, you make those swarm of gnats in the swamp looking good.
Subject: Let´s do this!! I think this is too good to be true. I would love to see term limits as after 12 years in Congress, they aren´t too crazy about making American great again, they are thinking about the money and Lobbyist gifts along with the next election.
The Trump Rule This makes way too much sense not to be passed on. But at least we can make our wishes known and hope. I’m with Trump on this one.
President Trump is asking everyone to forward this email to a minimum of 20 people, and to ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in the United States will have the message. This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party.
The TRUMP Rule Congressional Reform Act of 2017 1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they´re out of office.
2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
From an article on glioblastoma, especially in frontal lobes:
Patients with primary intrinsic brain tumors can experience neurological, cognitive, and psychiatric symptoms that greatly affect daily life. In this review, we focus on changes in personality and behavior, mood issues, hallucinations, and psychosis, because these are either difficult to recognize, to treat, or are understudied in scientific literature. (Snip)
After surgery, brain tumor patients are more likely to underestimate their psychological problems and the negative impact of changes to their emotional functioning, interpersonal relationships, neurocognitive functioning, and coping skills.23 This can be distressing for partners and others who are closely involved.23 Moreover, lack of awareness of deficits can have a major impact on the outcome of rehabilitation after treatment.24 As social and behavioral problems are often very difficult to detect in clinical neuro-oncological practice, but can affect the lives of patients and their partners in a very profound way, these issues are of special concern.
SenatorMcCain seems to bask being in the limelight, and by taking “maverick” actions he rests assured that he will the darling of the mainstream media being sought out for comments and televised appearances. Whether his malcontent conduct is borne of intellect or ego is not discernible; however, curiosity ponders which way he would have voted if the projected vote count had been the same, but in opposition. What SenatorMcCain doesn’t seem to grasp, or care about, is the sullied reputation he has brought upon himself. Life moves on, but history lingers, and history may not be very kind to him.
Paul´s and McCain´s fake opposition to ACA repeal is designed to act as a smoke screen to keep Obiegate out of sight and keep the fake Russia thing fresh in people´s minds. Paul´s and McCain´s utter hate for Trump is this strong.
Hey Arizona, not coming to your state again until you boot this lying jackal. Wake up. He campaigned on repeal and has done everything he can to not make that happen. Enjoy the Grand Canyon and my lack of tourism dollars.
The years in Vietnam and McCain´s poor record in the Senate suggests severe damage from being captive in this voter´s mind. Add the brain surgery last month and the need for clarity in legislating for tax reform, repealing Obamacare and dealing with a dangerous world. He served his country long enough and should resign.
And any of you are surprised? This is the malevolent idiot that was the first half of the ´McCain-Feingold´ campaign finance reform effort eventually rejected by the Supreme Court. Can anyone name anything he accomplished in the Senate that is worthy of note? Wisconsin had the sense to eject Feingold in 2010 and drove a stake through his heart in his 2016 attempt to return to the ´trough´. Sadly Arizona keeps inflicting McCain not only on themselves, but on the rest of us as well. I deeply regret supporting McCain in 2008 and sincerely believe his idiocy is what gave us Obama. There are those that will criticize me for not having sympathy for a man with a terminal illness. To them I say, the day you are born you acquire a terminal illness and that is not an excuse for leaving a hot mess behind you as you exit this vale of tears.
Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., again raised the issue of race as she slammed the White House en masse, after a video was released that confirmed White House chief of staff John Kelly had inaccurately portrayed her remarks at a dedication of an FBI building. "The White House itself is full of white supremacists," she told the New York Times on Friday. Video footage of the event, published by the Sun Sentinel on Friday, shows Wilson discussing her role sponsoring legislation to name the building after fallen FBI agents who were killed in a shootout with bank robbers in 1986. "I
James Woods went to town on his Twitter account slamming the liberal lunatic Rep. Wilson and it was glorious. This is why we LOVE James Woods! As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, far left Cowgirl Congresswoman Frederica Wilson trashed President Trump after he called Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s widow, Myeshia this week. Trump called the grieving widow after her husband died in Niger serving the country. Frederica, who is always spotted in a glittery cowgirl hat, trashed the GOP president for his words to the widow. Frederica said Trump was cold and callous to the widow. President Trump tweeted
While visiting Hillsdale College this week, I was unexpectedly bequeathed a gift. When I arrived at the house where I am staying I discovered on the buffet table in the kitchen a small collection of books on military history, grand strategy, and World War II. Among them was the bound galley of Victor Davis Hanson´s The Second World Wars, published Tuesday by Basic Books. Having heard advance praise for the book, I picked up the hefty galley. I have not put it down since. Most surveys of the global conflagration between September 1939 and September 1945 are chronological. They begin
Virtually every chance House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had to dispel her reputation as a delusional, establishment hack completely out-of-touch with reality, she always finds some way to reveal that she really is a delusional, establishment hack completely out-of-touch with reality. Her latest guffaw occurred during her appearance on Friday´s The View where she denied America is in a culture war and that Democrats have division in their ranks. First topic of conversation was the despicable non-controversy cooked up by Congresswoman Frederica Wilson alleging that Trump treated a Gold Star widow disrespectfully over the phone; Pelosi called Wilson a
A little-known adviser on the Trump campaign is a “person of interest” in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign. North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate panel, told BuzzFeed that George Papadopoulos, a short-lived member of the campaign’s foreign policy team, is “definitely a person of interest” in the committee’s probe. Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the Democratic vice chairman of the committee, echoed Burr’s statement, saying that the committee hopes to interview Papadopoulos, who was an adviser to Ben Carson’s campaign before joining the Trump team last March. The Daily Caller
Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples
One thing that’s been an absolute staple of Fox News’ programming during the Age of Trump has been a heavy criticism of the mainstream media’s coverage. With the president spending much of his time complaining about “fake news” in response to reporting he doesn’t like, the network’s opinion hosts and commentators have parroted POTUS’s attacks and devoted segments to hammering other outlets. In an interview with the Associated Press this week, Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace put his colleagues on blast over their penchant for discrediting the press. As he puts it, whenever these media attacks are uttered on
DailyMail.com has obtained a drone´s view of the fully completed border wall prototypes that are vying to be part of Trump´s new Mexican border wall. The companies that have totally completed their imposing structures so far are: Maryland´s ETLA North America Inc, two completed from Caddell Construction Co, LLC, of Alabama, a wall by Texas Sterling Construction Co. of Houston and a wall completed by Arizona´s Fisher Sand & Gravel which was among the first to complete construction of it´s prototype. Next to Fisher Sand & Gravel´s structure is the outline of a wall to be built by KWR Construction
Amid controversy surrounding Trump´s interaction with one Gold Star family, another widow shared her uplifting phone call with the President. Natasha De Alencar, who tragically lost her husband, Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, during his deployment back in early April, released audio footage of the condolence conversation. ´I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a, what a horrible thing - except that he´s an unbelievable hero. You know, all of the people that served with him are saying how incredible he was,´ Trump told Natasha during the exchange shared with the Washington Post. ´Everyone
Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration. In a disgusting display of sudden respect for a long time political foe, the network’s championed Bush’s hammering of the current president. And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too. “Today, the 43rd President made no mention of the 45th, but his focus was clear,” touted White House Correspondent Margaret Brennan during CBS Evening News. “He suggested that an America first mindset is
“What is the difference between a socialist and a Democrat on taxes?” asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during Wednesday’s CNN-hosted town hall debate in Washington, D.C. Sanders could not or would not answer the question; “I don’t know the answer to that,” said the self-described “democratic socialist” senator from Vermont. Sanders heralded “Denmark, and Sweden, and Norway, and Finland,” falsely framing the Scandinavian countries as having a “higher standard of living” than America. America’s “free enterprise system,” said Cruz, has been history’s greatest generator of prosperity, adding, "Bernie likes to glorify socialism, but if you
Quentin Tarantino admitted knowing for decades about Harvey Weinstein´s alleged sexual misconduct, confessing in an interview published Thursday to feeling ashamed that he did not stop working with the mogul. ´I knew enough to do more than I did,´ the Oscar-winning filmmaker told the New York Times, citing several episodes involving prominent actresses. ´There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. ´It wasn´t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.´ Weinstein, 65, is accused of decades of sexual abuse and harassment by around 40 actresses, including stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and
Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations
Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that “bigotry seems emboldened” in the United States, warning that Americans need to reject “white supremacy.” The former president also criticized the “governing class,” but did not specifically mention President Trump, Congress or any other politicians in office. “Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts” in recent years, Bush said in remarks from New York City at a forum focused on security and sponsored by the George W. Bush Institute.
George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´
Democratic Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson is laughing and bragging after White House chief of staff John Kelly said he was “stunned” Thursday that Wilson criticized President Donald Trump’s call to the widow of a dead soldier. “You mean to tell me that I’ve become so important…that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing. That’s amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now,” Wilson told Miami Fox affiliate WSVN-TV, while laughing. (Snip) The congresswoman also bizarrely said, “The dog can bark at the moon all night long but
Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.
A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´. Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an
For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, weighed in on the report, telling FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.,” “The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.” Napolitano said this gives insight into the State Department’s casual approach to top secret
WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Tom Homan confirmed on Thursday that a man arrested in connection with setting a fire in Sonoma County Wine Country is an illegal alien from Mexico who has been twice returned to his “home country.” Homan also confirmed that ICE has issued detainer requests for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez five times now in the past year alone, including the one issued on October 16 in relation to his most recent arrest on suspicion of arson. All of the arrests were made “by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges,” according
WASHINGTON — A young Barack Obama questioned his place in the world and his racial identity, agonized over whether he´d make enough money as a community organizer, and lamented his incompatibility with his ex-girlfriend in 30 pages of letters he wrote to her that are now being archived by Emory University in Atlanta. (Snip) "My ideas aren´t as crystallized as they were while in school, but they have an immediacy and weight that may be more useful if and when I´m less observer and more participant," Obama wrote in 1984 to McNear, who was a student at a California college
The two most recent presidents on Thursday blasted the state of US politics in events that were separated by less than 20 miles. First, it was former President George W. Bush. The most recent former Republican president lambasted a political culture that caused "bigotry" to seem "emboldened." The public comments were Bush´s most pointed since President Donald Trump took office in January. "In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined," the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute. "Our governing class has often been paralyzed
Hey, mainstream media! We finally found it — a real Russia scandal involving the 2016 election. With actual evidence of criminal wrongdoing and everything! So come on, New York Times, CNN and MSNBC, let’s ... Hey, where’d everybody go? For months I’ve been doing TV hits as the token conservative and getting grilled over “Russiagate.” Did Donald Trump and the Russians collude to steal the election from Hillary Clinton? And for months I’ve been asking the same questions: Where is the evidence of an actual crime? And since “collusion” isn’t necessarily against the law, what actual crime are Democrats and their media
