McCain’s Hatred of Trump is Stronger than Friendship

John McCain is in a familiar position. He is once again back with his people. John has regained his status as the darling of the leftist media. Just the way he likes it.

The Maverick, as he’s been known in the past, is normally the definition of a republican establishment hack. Yet he has now bucked his own party not once, but twice, with his two dramatic “no votes” on beginning the process of at least curtailing ObamaCare.

Let’s be clear. This was not an ObamaCare repeal vote. But remember – an object in motion tends to stay in motion. If this is all we can get – at least it’s motion.

Recall his first no vote as he strode to the floor of the Senate chambers to give his cinematic thumbs down – mic drop and walk-off.

If the Senate had performance awards, like the Emmys or Oscars, he would surely have won one. read more

Huckabee Sanders Guilty of Unmasking ESPN

For Years Rush Limbaugh has said that quite often, the mainstream sports media is even more liberal than are their news media counterparts.

And this is no more conspicuous than the management and on screen personalities at ESPN.

It’s evidently just fine with ESPN for their employee, Jemele Hill, to call President Trump a white supremacist, but heaven forbid any of their people espouse a viewpoint other than leftist.

And worse than Linda Cohn being suspended for pointing out the obvious – that ESPN is losing audience due to their leftist politics, Kurt Schilling fired for espousing a conservative view, or the overreaction over Anthony Frederico’s “Chink in the Armor” statement, is someone daring to point out ESPN’s hypocrisy.

This however, may be lost on ESPN, as it is with all leftists, for I don’t believe the term hypocrisy is in the liberal dictionary. read more

Hillary’s Book Price Gets Slashed

from One News Now:

Before former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s book launched and appeared on shelves of bookstores across the United States, Amazon and Walmart cut the price of What Happened – her new memoir designed to inform paying Americans why and how she lost to her Republican rival for the White House, now-President Donald Trump.

Conservatives have tagged the Tuesday-released book as just another way for Clinton to vent and blame everyone but herself for blowing the 2016 election.

“It’s on the shelves – the comprehensive guide to not taking responsibility for an election loss by two-time presidential loser Hillary Rodham Clinton,” Townhall’s Matt Vespa announced. “Sure, she says the loss was on her, and that she will live with that for the rest of her life, but remember – James Comey, the media, Russia, sexism, Joe Biden, and Bernie Sanders are all to blame for torpedoing her presidential dreams.” read more

WND Exclusive – JE SUIS SELF-ABSORPTION AND HATRED

While immeasurable numbers of our fellow citizens are suffering the ravages of Hurricane Harvey, tone-deaf leftists are celebrating the end of summer at the Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada.

The festival lasts for 10 days and runs through Labor Day. Oops – according to the website, it is not a festival, but a “community.” The irony is that as a literal wall of water was bearing down on Texas, a wildfire and dust storm almost canceled the non-festival festival.

Yet the self-indulgent set would not be deterred. They fought their way through and made it to Burning Man. Yay! read more

Trump Proclaims Sky is Blue – Liberals Dispute It

It’s really has gotten this bad.

from the American Spectator:

Had Donald Trump given the Gettysburg Address, liberals would have called it insultingly brief. No matter how eloquently and sensibly he speaks, they stand ready to snipe at him. No sooner had he finished his stellar remarks in Poland than they grabbed for their wet blankets.

Yes, he criticized Russia; yes, he defended NATO. But why, they wanted to know, didn’t he attack his hosts? Or as the New York Times put it: “Mr. Trump roused his Polish hosts by recounting the country’s history of resistance to invaders, including Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. But he said nothing about the right-wing government’s crackdown on judges and journalists and its refusal to accept more migrants, policies that have upset European Union leaders. He instead praised Poland as a defender of liberty in the face of existential threats.” read more

Podcast – Trump and Obama have Something in Common

Both Obama and Trump have made exclamations regarding initiatives important to them. However, one’s words were of no account and the other, the exact opposite.

Trump’s order is a travel ban. No it’s not. Trump’s order is a Muslim ban. No it’s not. Yes it. It definitely is a travel ban. Trump said so.

This sounds exactly like what Obama said about his signature healthcare bill some eight years ago. It’s a penalty. No it’s not. It’s a tax. No it’s not. It’s definitely not a tax. Obama said so.

The Court didn’t take Obama’s words into account back then, when the supreme Court ruled it was not a penalty, as Obama insisted, but a tax.

Yet now the Courts only rule on Trump’s words. Sounds like a double standard. read more

Comey’s Testimony was Nothing to Crow About

by: the Common Constitutionalist and The Hill.com

Since I have a day job, I was not afforded the opportunity to sit and view fired FBI Director James Comey’s public testimony on the Hill yesterday.

I would not have anyway, figuring it would a nothing-burger. I was right. From what I can glean, Comey didn’t offer any further enlightenment or bombshells. It seems to be just a rehashing of his written statement, and everything that has trickled out over the past several months.

Basically that he was a scared girly-man, afraid of big bad President Trump. Maybe he thought one of his private meeting would result in the President body-slamming him ala Greg Gianforte.

From what I understand, he was so concerned about the lack of the President’s character, that he felt the need to run out of his meetings with Trump and type a detailed recollection of every word that was said on a laptop in his car. No doubt he has an eidetic memory, so no one should question the word-for-word accuracy of his accounting. And oddly enough, I don’t think anyone did. I also don’t think anyone asked if the memo (s) he leaked to a reporter were his, or more likely, the property of the FBI, typed on an FBI laptop, in an FBI vehicle. I think we would have heard that exchange, which is why I don’t believe he was asked.

Still, as I did not have a chance to view Comey’s testimony, nor will I, I left the after-action analysis to Kayleigh Mcenany of The Hill.com

OPINION: Dems’ dreams dashed as Comey testimony clears Trump

from the Hill:

The much-anticipated day had finally arrived. Democrats breathlessly awaited the testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey, certain that his testimony would topple Trump.

But high hopes turned to dashed dreams when Comey’s testimony cleared President Trump. Not only did the testimony vindicate the commander in chief, it included a startling revelation that Obama-era Attorney General Loretta Lynch attempted to influence the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton.

Here are the five facts that emerged from the Comey hearing and shattered Democratic dreams:

The Terror Britain Let In

from Katie Hopkins:

At this difficult time, Britain is faced with some hard questions the people charged with protecting us are going to have to answer sooner or later.

The Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was known to the authorities.

He is believed to have travelled to the Middle East and become radicalised before returning to the UK to cause carnage at a gig in the city where he was born just days later.

As his father and brother were arrested in Libya, security force sources there said the father had links to Al Qaeda and another source claimed the brother ‘was aware of all the details’ of attack plans.

Yet he was allowed to walk back to the UK unchallenged.

Katie Hopkins asks: Who is going to protect our kids from the terror the politicians let in?

Liberals at ABC Shelf Conservative Sitcom

I’m not usually the protesting type, nor do I get sucked into dopey hashtag campaigns, but I’m considering making an exception.

I’ve already aired my grievance to ABC directly, but I may also join the #BoycottABC campaign, for the cancellation by ABC of its second highest rated sitcom, Last Man Standing.

from The Daily Mail:

ABC is facing calls from angry conservatives on social media to boycott the television network on Monday after it was learned that a popular sitcom starring right-leaning actor Tim Allen was canceled.

The hashtag #BoycottABC was trending on Twitter Monday in response to the network’s decision not to renew Last Man Standing for a seventh season, even though it is one of ABC’s most highly rated shows.

Last Man Standing is a comedy that tells the story of the main protagonist, Mike Baxter, played by Allen.

Baxter is ‘the quintessential man’s man’ known for his old-fashioned views.

A devout Christian and outspoken political conservative who supported Donald Trump, Baxter works at a sporting good retailer, Outdoor Man, which sells guns, jerky, and camouflage recliners, according to Google.
