First I’d like to pay tribute to the Navy Hero. Yep – John McCain was a war hero. Not because he was shot down. That happened to many pilots during the Vietnam non-war war. It’s what happened after.

McCain was captured, then offered release by the North Vietnamese and allowed to go home. Like few others might, he refused and stayed voluntarily so as to not abandon his men, knowing full well the torture that he would be in for. He paid dearly for his decision, which adversely affected him for the rest of his life. And given the choice, I believe that Naval Officer McCain would have done it all over again for the sake of his men.

If that ain’t heroism – there is no such thing.

But why would the left, who hates the military, be so enamored with McCain?

Well, it sure couldn’t be that he was the poster boy Never-Trumper? Naw – that couldn’t be it. read more

It’s patently obvious that both the left and establishment right hate president Trump.

Over the years, with practically every other politician, we have accepted that what they say should be taken with a massive grain of salt.

But now all of a sudden, we’re expected to treat Trump differently. Now every “word” he utters evidently carries the weight of the world. Well, I’m here to tell you – that’s crap.

All of us should have figured out by now that Trump just says stuff, maybe strategically, or merely to get a rise out of some. Because of the visceral hatred they have of him, they will never cut him any slack like they’ve done with so many before him.

Well, they’re just words folks. Time to get over it.
