John McCain

McCain's Revenge

Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator

Following his back-stabbing vote, John McCain, as sympathetic a character as his health issues might make him this week, deserves to feel the sting of a Republican senator. If McCain never returns to the Senate, it is fitting that the last vote he casts will be one which, unfortunately for the nation, adds some credence to the words “He’s no hero.”

It's Time To Drain The Swamp In The GOP

We conservatives need to translate the grassroots rage over the betrayals of Republican elected officials into a national conversation about the future of the Republican Party and a wave of national activism to nominate and elect “Drain the Swamp” Republicans to the House of Representatives and the US Senate.

The Establishment GOP Is Committing Suicide By Lie

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

The Bizarre World Of The Republican Senate

It is a bizarre world indeed when perpetual maverick Senator John McCain saves the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare and also gives one of the more sensible analyses of why the process is a mess.

Conservatives Giving Senate GOP One Last Chance On Obamacare Repeal

This is the last chance Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans have to get right with the GOP’s conservative majority. If this Obamacare repeal bill fails then it will be obvious to all that the only sure path to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, rebuild our economy and build the border wall lies through the Republican Primary Elections.

Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

The latest Senate Obamacare repeal bill is, given the weak-kneed GOP leadership, as close to repeal as we're going to get. Ultimately, the final answer to repealing Obamacare and restoring a free market in health insurance is to be found in only one place: The Republican primary elections.

Was The Russian Lawyer's Meeting With Donald Trump Jr Part Of A Deep State Plot?

Connect the dots and it looks like the same group of dictator-friendly Democrats who got the the spurious dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump into the news have chosen this moment to leak information on Donald Jr. to keep the phony Russian collusion story alive.

Conservatives Got Aggressive And McConnell Blinked

The problem in the Senate Republican Conference is Mitch McConnell’s unwillingness to actually pursue conservative alternatives to Obamacare. We've won one round, now it's time for conservatives to hang tough and force McConnell to move the Consumer Freedom Option.

RINOs Declare War On Trump’s Conservative Budget

Sen. John McCain and other RINOs have declared President Trump's budget DOA. This is the kind of “Republican” policy that has federal spending on autopilot while tax collections are at record highs and the federal deficit is also at a record high.

Don't Do It Donald

Choosing Democrat turned Independent Senator Joe Lieberman to head the FBI would empower President Trump’s fiercest enemies in the Republican Party and do nothing to get Democrats off his back.

Think Things Can’t Get Worse In Syria?

Taking out Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad would mean we are now aligned with “partners” who include assorted Sunni Sharia-supremacists – including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood – whose agenda is no less murderous and menacing than Assad’s.

Lessons From The World War I Centennial

Perhaps the most under-recognized lesson that Americans should take from our entry into World War I was the vast series of unintended consequences that were loosed by our involvement in the war to "make the world safe for democracy."

Obama Advisers Suckering Trump Further Into Syrian Quagmire

If President Trump truly will not tolerate the Assad government using chemical weapons then he should take out the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center where they are made and managed, anything short of that is merely continuing the fantasies of John McCain and the halfhearted measures and follies of Barack Obama.

Is McCain Hijacking Trump’s Foreign Policy?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Has President Trump given McCain, who wanted President Bush to intervene in a Russia-Georgia war—over South Ossetia!—carte blanche to hand out war guarantees to unstable Balkan states? With the death of Communism, the end of the Cold War, and the collapse of the Bushite New World Order, America needs a new grand strategy, built upon the solid foundation of America First.

How Dictatorships Get Started

Contrary to what Senator McCain said about dictatorship starting by suppressing a free press, it is not hard to see parallels between today’s free, but highly politicized establishment elite media, and the media in Germany that helped the Nazis take power.

America’s Biggest Lawbreaker versus Donald Trump

As we wrote in The Law That Governs Government, efforts by bureaucrats within the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, and even the Justice Department and national security infrastructure to undermine the Trump administration are signs that the administrative state is openly hostile to the constitutional rule of law.

Where was McCain when Obama attacked the free press?

Monica Showalter, American Thinker

The Obama list is quite long, and that is not surprising. Obama was a socialist and socialists of all stripes have a long record of suppressing freedom of the press, subordinating its expression to the interests of an all-powerful state and its dictator. McCain found nothing wrong with that when Obama was playing that game and undercutting the press in what seemed to be pretty oppressive and downright illegal behavior.

Rand Paul Was Right About McCain

“I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East,” said Senator Paul. In this, and many other things about McCain, Senator Paul is right.
