Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Proof again that McCain was ´buttstroked´ (hit in the head with a rifle stock) with an AK47 one too many times. He´s senile and becoming a twin to Hillary Clinton with his ramblings about nothing. Time for John to go home because he´s insignificant.
McCain never heard of self interest, human nature, the free market, and the invisible hand, which is what Trump refers to. McCain is an idiot, has been wrong on every single thing, and is where he feels truly at home, at an event with Joe (the fool) Biden.
McCain, get over yourself. You are not a world leader, you are just a Senator from Arizona, bought and paid for. Sorry the establishment is not doing so well these days, maybe you should spend some of the rest of your time reflecting on why.
Constantly trying to belittle the people in the middle class who voted for Trump and rejected the likes of you is not going to get your beloved RHINO elitist club back into power.
Trump is making things happen, you did not. McCain, you let us down by betraying us and it will not be forgotten for a very long time.
I have a live-ending lung disease, but I have chosen to not have a lung transplant. I would prefer to spend time with my family. What is wrong with this person who has a similar situation and still wants to make himself relevent?
He needs to go. Live long and prosper but not in the US Senate. #5 offers a factoid or two.
There should be age limits. Strong ones. Occasionally that will seem rather unfair when an able person cannot stay in office but I don´t really care about ´unfair´ when the evidence tells us that very, very few will function well in extreme old age.
He may be crazy but he can still read big words. Maybe he´s in a contest with John Kerry for worst Vietnam vet ever. He never criticized Barack Obama once but according to him, Donald Trump is a bad president. That makes him either crazy or a perfect democrat.
These globalists live in a dreamworld where government is run by angels who never act in their own best interest and are always of highest moral character (e.g. Nkorea and Iran) and can be trusted with unlimited power.
I am trying not to go there with McCain but he sure is making it difficult. Clearly, he has his priorities out of whack if he believes his life is better spent denigrating American citizens than it is spent with his family during whatever time he has left. He evidently has decided to go out raging against good American patriots. So be it. I don´t believe he is going to make the impact he wishes. Whether or not his actions in Vietnam were honorable or not, I do not know but his actions now are of a traitorous fool. They say some things never change and I have to believe McCain is one of them.
I can´t believe I actually voted for him, but I damn sure know why I had to hold my nose while doing so! All this does is reinforce my complete distaste for RINOs which appears to be a larger group than I once thought it was since President Trump took office. Keep it up boys, it only helps us pick the winners in the next primary!
When the most productive and wealthiest country participates in "Globalism" it means creating world welfare wherein we subsidize other countries with military assets, trade deals and direct payments. Hillary spent years as S of S selling out America in every way possible. McCain and others have also "Monetized" their positions of power like a rich kid handing out free stuff that dad pays for. No one respects the rich kid but he seems not to care. McCain comes from a long line of Military rank and privilege.
McCain don´t make a complete ass of yourself. Admit the mistakes you have made and what a traitor you are. Go to the Dems and give speeches for them, you will feel better having made a clean breast of everything!
An 83-year-old retired Marine kept a promise he made to a fellow officer while they were hunkered down in a bunker during the Vietnam War.Retired Marine Master Sgt. William H. Cox and Retired Marine First Sgt. James ´Hollie´ Hollingsworth were shielding themselves from rockets and mortars in 1968 as they were fighting in the Marble Mountains during the war on New Year´s Eve.

The Department of Defense retweeted a post Thursday calling for the president’s resignation.The Pentagon marred its Twitter presence briefly by retweeting a post from a Twitter user named “PROUD RESISTER” that proposed a so-called “simple” solution to the sexual harassment situation going on in Washington. The Twitter user appears to be a staunch critic of the right, as well as the president, and seems to be affiliated with the website proudresister.com, which sells resistance merchandise.Unlike the act of liking a post, retweeting is a two-step process.(Tweets) The Department of Defense promptly undid the retweet, but not before journalists and other
BALTIMORE– Last week the Baltimore police commissioner was fired up at a press conference, Wednesday, the mayor responded to those who are lashing out at her. They say she doesn’t take the violence seriously.Mayor Catherine Pugh says every time there’s a shooting or murder, her phone rings, and it couldn’t be more disturbing.Pugh says they’re moving the hiring process along as fast as they can with officers but the City might not feel the impact until next year.The department said once officers make it through the academy, they are immediately deployed to foot patrol in various communities, including the Inner
WASHINGTON, DC–Conservatives are pushing the Senate to jettison the American Bar Association (ABA) from any role in evaluating President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees, noting that the ABA unfairly discriminates against conservatives.The private-sector group has created a “Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary,” which was used by officials in the Democratic administrations of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to vet potential nominees before the presidents nominated them.Under recent Republican administrations of George W. Bush and Donald Trump, the White House does not seek ABA input before making nominations.But the Senate Judiciary Committee currently considers the ABA’s evaluation once a nomination is
House Democrats mocked Republicans after the lower chamber passed legislation to overhaul the tax code on Thursday. House Republicans had started to clap after the bill received enough votes to pass when Democrats joined in and sang “na na na na hey hey hey goodbye." House Democrats appear to be referring to the possibility that Republicans who voted for the bill will not be reelected due to their decisions. Democrats mockingly sang the same song in May when House Republicans passed their ObamaCare repeal and replace legislation. The measure was approved by a vote of 227-205 Thirteen Republicans in the
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate sexual assault allegations against Senator Al Franken (D-MN) on Thursday. Unlike the recent allegations targeted towards Alabama Judge Roy Moore, McConnell did not call for Franken to “step aside.” In a statement, McConnell called the allegations against Franken “credible”, yet did not name Franken by name or call for the senator to resign: “As with all credible allegations of sexual harassment or assault, I believe the Ethics Committee should review the matter. I hope the Democratic Leader will join me on this. Regardless of party, harassment
Democratic Sen. Al Franken was accused by a California sports radio broadcaster on Thursday of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006 -- but the politician has a history of making crude remarks about sexually assaulting women. Franken, then a comedian, was quoted in a 1995 New York Magazine article discussing a skit for “Saturday Night Live” that involved drugging and raping CBS reporter Lesley Stahl. Franken, at the time a writer for “SNL,” suggested one skit should play out with “60 Minutes” commentator Andy Rooney finding an empty pill bottle on his desk. (Photo) “´I give the
Broadway stars were proud to host failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Sunday night for "an evening that was all about women, by women, and for women," according to InStyle. "Tony and Grammy winners packed The Town Hall theater in N.Y.C. for a special concert all about women´s empowerment called ´Double Standards,´" reports InStyle. "Everyone from ´Waitress´ lyricist Sara Bareilles to ´The Great Comet of 1812´s´ former Sonya Rostova, Ingrid Michaelson, sang about women´s rights, Hillary Clinton, and standing up in the face of the patriarchy, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the concert tickets and donations going toward
President Donald J. Trump is routinely referred to as a fascist by the left. Much of that rhetoric originates from within the Democrat Party. We hear little to no outrage by either Democrats or Republicans at the use of this inflammatory language. In fact, the cliched phrase “the silence is deafening” finds a real application in this climate of extreme disparagement. Think of it: Trump’s desire to have extreme vetting of immigrants from certain war-torn Islamic countries is portrayed repeatedly as racist, Islamaphobic, and fascist. These countries are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism. They are countries where members of the Taliban,
Hillary Clinton believes appointing a special counsel to investigate her ties to a uranium deal with Russia would be an abuse of power. Clinton said that if she were to be put under investigation by a special counsel, the United States would be like an “authoritarian regime.” Clinton believes it would send a bad message to the country and would be “demoralizing” to people who have served at the Department of Justice, Axios reported Wednesday. Clinton told Mother Jones: If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are
Judge Moore has been accused of sexual assault and sexual advances on teenage girls by the liberal media and coastal elites in the past week. Several of the allegations have already been disproven. (Photo) FAIRHOPE, AL – SEPTEMBER 25: Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, Roy Moore, speaks at a campaign rally on September 25, 2017 in Fairhope, Alabama. Moore is running in a primary runoff election against incumbent Luther Strange for the seat vacated when Jeff Sessions was appointed U.S. Attorney General by President Donald Trump. The runoff election is scheduled for September 26. WHEN: Friday, Nov.
President Trump got his wish Wednesday afternoon when the three UCLA basketball players busted in China for shoplifting thanked him for his help in getting them home. The three, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley and LiAngelo Ball — younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — also apologized to their families and their school, while thanking the Chinese cops for treating them well. “I would like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help they provided. I am grateful to be back home and I will never make a mistake like this again. I
In the past few weeks, I´ve been a woman of split personalities. On a good day, I´m elated — empowered and inspired by the many women who have courageously opened the floodgates to help end the shroud of silence and shame that surrounds victims of sexual assault and harassment. I shared my stories. I brought other women together to share theirs. We were giddy at the catharsis. It felt like a sea change. On a bad day, I´m despondent — devastated and angry that so many of the people who were rightly outraged over Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were utterly disbelieving
Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC. When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing. You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both
When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A
Environment: This week, thousands of scientists issued a bleak and terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action. If this warning is as reliable as the first notice these scientists issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about. In an article published in the journal Bioscience, 15,364 scientists warned that we are "jeopardizing our future" and that "immediate action" is needed to "safeguard our imperiled biosphere." "Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out," the scientists say. The article
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate. (Snip) Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald
Papa John´s apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. The company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John´s shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago."(Snip) "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive," it said. "That definitely was not our
The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special
President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com. The fundraiser was held at the palatial Upper East Side duplex owned by Dennis Mehiel, a former candidate

Gustav Åhr, who grew up in Long Beach, New York, was reportedly taken to hospital following an overdose, according to music manager Adam Grandmaison.
