Check out the Maverick's legion of fans

Remember now...he's supposed to be a Republican!!!


‘God Bless John McCain’: Democrat celebrities rejoice as Maverick Senator kills Obamacare repeal after dramatic return to DC after brain cancer diagnosis

Celebrities have rejoiced at John McCain's decision to kill the Republican's plan to repeal Obamacare.

Cher lead the praise for the maverick senator, who has made a huge impact on Capitol Hill in the wake of his brain cancer diagnosis.

The singer said on Twitter: 'God Bless John McCain' in reaction to the news coming from the US Capitol. 

Video blogger and self-titled media analyst Mark Dice called the 80-year-old - who flew to Washington after surgery - a 'scumbag' for voting against Donald Trump's wishes.

'Right thing to do': John McCain told reporters outside the Senate chamber that voting against the 'Skinny Repeal' was the only course of action he felt able to take 

High drama for the Maverick: Senator John McCain leaves the Senate chamber at the U.S. Capitol after voting against his own party 

With the vote stalled going late into the morning, McCain walked onto the Senate floor just before 2am to point his finger downwards and said 'nay' to audible gasps from fellow lawmakers.

Killing the so-called 'skinny repeal' dead 51-49 after seven years of promises from Republicans, McCain was joined by fellow GOP rebels, Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins. 

As well as the cheering inside the chamber, observers posted their glee on social media. 

Cher, pictured, was among the most vocal supporters of John McCain

Cher said: 'God Bless John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. Alaska Strong.

'Obamacare needs changing now the Democrats and the Great Old Party can work together to fix it.'

She also poked fun at the President saying McCain was a hero who risked his life for America fighting in Vietnam while Trump hid in New York. 

John Legend also backed McCain's decision but stopped short of calling his actions heroic. 

He said: 'Thanks to the Senators who voted to kill that stupid, heartless bill. Let's stay vigilant. It's not over. 

'Bill should have lost 95-5. I have a hard time calling the three Republicans who voted "no" heroes. It was obviously stupid and awful.'

Bernie Sanders, who was pipped to the Democrat's candidate post last year by Hilary Clinton, also expressed his gratitude to those in power who decided to back Obamacare. 

He said: 'Thank you to everyone across the country who stood up and fought back. Tonight was a victory for the American people. 

'This is only the first step. 

'We must now move forward to guarantee health care to all people as a right not a privilege.' 

Billy Crystal, Jason Alexander and Kristen Bell were all among those in McCain's camp, but there are plenty opposing the Arizona senator. 

John Legend, pictured right with his wife Chrissy Teigen, also praised McCain's decision

Mark Dice, a staunch Trump supporter who has a million subscribers to his YouTube channel, said: John McCain cast the fatal vote which killed the Skinny Repeal of ObamaCare tonight. What a scumbag.

'John McCain is the poster boy of why we need term limits in Congress.'

One of his followers - identifying as Digital Anarchist - replied with a sick message saying he hoped McCain 'got what he deserved' and 'dropped dead'. 

Host of Your Voice America Bill Mitchell, another Trump promoter, said: 'John McCain. You are a national embarrassment. 

'What we witnessed from McCain last night was the final flight of a Kamikaze, career, and life over, seeking to take Trump with him.

'I don't know what was worse, McCain's treachery voting no or his orgy on the floor of the Senate with his Democrat pals afterward. 

'Sorry John, your "War Hero" card is all punched out. You are just a traitor now.

'Is John McCain gonna play the cancer victim card now that his war hero card is all punched out? I had cancer - twice. McCain is a traitor.' 

Leaving the Capitol early Friday, McCain is pursued by reporters after casting a 'no' vote

On leaving the Capitol, McCain was asked by reporters why he decided to vote against the bill.

He replied, 'Because it was the right thing to do.' He later issued a statement.

'From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people,' said McCain.

'The so-called 'skinny repeal' amendment the Senate voted on today would not accomplish those goals.'

Trump responded on Twitter: '3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!'

The House must now trash out what the final legislation will look like before sending it to the White House for Donald Trump to sign it into law.


The Maverick

And to think Republicans were waiting for their "hero" to return.

Ever ask yourself why McCain is a Republican? He's made a career of fucking the Republican party yet he keep's getting reelected.

The single GOP achievement since the Trump inaugural is...
Pelosi will once again become Speaker of the House.

Remember this guy?

No the one on the right.


Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Pakistani IT guy arrested at airport - Washington Times

Well, this doesn’t look odd at all, does it?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s top information technology guy, the Pakistani-born Imran Awan — who was under investigation by the FBI for theft and cybersecurity-tied abuses — was arrested at Dulles International Airport, as he tried to flee the country.

And now Democrats are rushing to defend him, saying he’s the target of massive federal Islamophobia. What a crock.

Wasserman Schultz said through a spokesman Awan was simply a “part-time employee, but his services have been terminated,” Mediaite reported.

Oh, but he’s more, much more, than that.

Awan is the same guy who has made big bucks on the back of taxpayers for years, all while having largely unfettered access to computer-stored data from House Democrats. Can you say security breach? He’s also the same guy who just made a curious transfer of $283,000 to two individuals in Pakistan from his Longworth House Office Building, as reported by the Daily Caller News Foundation. He’s also the same guy whose wife and children just left America for Pakistan, reportedly carrying more than $12,000 in cash.

And he’s also the same guy who’s been under FBI investigation for some time for allegedly double-billing House members for items like computers, iPads and other technological equipment. He had quite a racket going on; Awan’s two brothers and their wives also served as IT staffers for House Democrats — for the last ten years or so.

It’s a family business. A lucrative one, as well.

Between the time Awan started working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005 and his family members were let go, earlier this year, they had collectively earned more than $4 million in tax paid salaries. In February, House members were alerted to potential for abuse and let go Awan’s family members.

Until just recently, Wasserman Schultz refused to fire Awan, however, and even went so far in her defense of him that she recently refused Capitol Police’s request to search a laptop belonging to him.

And just this week?

Just this week, the FBI seized smashed hard drives from Awan’s home.

Nothing suspicious there, right?

Agents with the U.S. Capitol Police, Border Protection and the FBI stopped him Tuesday at the airport, where he was headed to Pakistan by way of Qatar.

Part of the investigation involves what information the family had access to, and what they did with it. Awan, for instance, has been charged with fraudulently taking out mortgages as part of one of several alleged financial schemes — conducted at a time when he had access to emails and files of dozens of members of Congress and to information tied to Wasserman Schultz’s former Democratic National Committee organization. Feds also think the family may have put sensitive House information on the “cloud,” leaving it open for others to view.

And what do the Democrats have to say about all this?

Unbelievably enough, they’re siding with Awan.

Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York, for instance, suggested police have simply framed Awan because he was born in Pakistan.

“Awan and his family are of Pakistani descent and according to Democrat sources, their ethnicity is ‘a factor in the attention they’re receiving,’” Mediaite reported.

Democrats truly couldn’t be any more blinded by partisanship. They’re obviously so willing to do the catering of their leftist base — to fight hard for their open border activists, their Muslim apologists in the lobby world, their progressive bulldogs — they’d put the security of the nation second to the get-away car of a federally suspected fraudster. Makes you wonder what Democrats are really trying to protect — what Democrats are really trying to hide.

Trump has no plans for White House pet

Trump's White House could be the first since James Polk's – 168 years ago – to have no presidential pets. 

My take is...


WASHINGTON — Politically ambitious pups and kittens: Put your resumes aside.

The job of first pet — an enviable White House gig with luxurious live-in privileges, after-hours access to the president and guaranteed positive press coverage — is not currently available.

That's because President Donald Trump is not looking for a fluffy sidekick at the moment. Asked about plans for a four-legged addition to the White House, Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Melania Trump, said in a statement: "The first family is still getting settled so there are no plans at this time."

If Trump stays pet-free, he will be breaking with a long held tradition of presidential pet ownership.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's had his beloved terrier Fala. President George H.W. Bush's English springer spaniel Millie was featured on "The Simpsons." When President Barack Obama's family acquired their Portuguese water dog Bo, it was big news.

"In the modern-day presidency, almost all of them have had a pet," said Jennifer Pickens, a White House social expert who wrote "Pets at the White House." Still, she noted, "all didn't necessarily have them at the beginning of the administration."

Power and pets have long gone hand in hand.

"For some reason people in power, they end up suffocating different opinions and dominating their staff, but they in some ways long for someone who will speak up to them, and a pet will," said Doug Wead, a former George H.W. Bush administration staffer who wrote books on presidential children and the 2016 campaign.

Wead noted that political pets can sometimes be used for, well, politics. He recalled an event after Millie had puppies that was "carefully choreographed so guests could see all these little puppies."

"It was calculated like a state dinner," he said.

While there have been notable pets in the White House for generations, Millie was the first modern White House dog, said Pickens. She added that Barbara Bush was the first one to "use the pet as a tool to reach out."

The former first lady wrote "Millie's Book: As Dictated to Barbara Bush," which reached the number one spot on the New York Times nonfiction best seller list in the fall of 1990. The newspaper's description: "The memoirs of the English springer spaniel who lives in the White House."

Hillary Rodham Clinton in 1998 followed Bush's lead, with a children's book about family dog Buddy and cat Socks. "Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids' Letters to the First Pets" featured photographs of the pets, details on their habits and more than 50 letters from children to the pets.

During President George W. Bush's administration, when the White House was closed for tours after 9/11, the administration tried to connect with the public through videos. Among them was the "Barney Cam" series of short videos featuring the Scottish terrier having adventures in the West Wing, with cameos from the first family and White House staff.

When he declared victory in the 2008 presidential race, Barack Obama told his daughters: "You have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House." Several months later, Bo joined the family, a gift from the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. Bo quickly became a household name, appearing on morning television shows and in videos promoting the White House Easter egg roll.

Some notable pets belonged to first kids, including Amy Carter's Siamese cat Misty Malarky Ying Yang and Caroline Kennedy's pony Macaroni. The Kennedy family had a veritable menagerie of pets, complete with dogs, cats, birds, hamsters and a rabbit named Zsa Zsa.

Going back in White House history, some presidential pet stories get more outlandish. According to the Presidential Pet Museum website, President Martin Van Buren was given a pair of tiger cubs that he donated to a zoo and President John Quincy Adams was presented an alligator.

While Trump has not embraced presidential pet ownership, Vice President Mike Pence has picked up the slack. The Pences have a bunny, Marlon Bundo, and a cat named Pickles. Another cat named Oreo recently died. And they just added two more pets to the household — puppy Harley and cat Hazel. They also installed a beehive.

Pickens said she doesn't know that it matters if Trump gets a dog, but she said they are "effective tools to connect with the American people and I think pets help humanize the presidency."

Of course, while pet ownership can provide personal and political perks, it can also go wrong. Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney was dogged by criticism for admitting that during a 1983 family vacation, he strapped his Irish setter — in a pet carrier — to the roof of his car for a 12-hour drive from Boston to Canada.

Texas 'bathroom bill' advances out of Senate committee

Hard to believe we're even having this conversation.

In an 8-1 vote, a Texas state Senate committee agreed Friday to advance a measure to restrict public restroom use by transgender people, despite 10 hours of testimony from opponents of the bill, the Texas Tribune reported.

Senate Bill 3, a so-called “bathroom bill,” would regulate public school facilities, open-enrollment charter school facilities, and local government restrooms to be “used only by persons of the same sex as stated on a person's birth certificate.” It will now advance to the full Senate for consideration.

The measure is expected to pass and be sent to the House. Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, is said to back the measure, which is sponsored by GOP state Sen. Lois Kolkhorst.

Republicans say the measure would help protect restroom users against sexual predators, but Democrats argue that it discriminates against transgender people.

Debate surrounding the bill has already cost the state $66 million in convention business, and that figure could rise to roughly $1.4 billion if more sports, conventions and other events are canceled.

A similar bill in North Carolina cost that state hundreds of millions of dollars and led to the relocation of this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend from Charlotte to New Orleans.

In March, North Carolina repealed its bathroom law, and in May the NBA agreed to hold its event in Charlotte in 2019.

Prior to Friday’s vote, leaders of the National Episcopal Church voiced their concerns, encouraging Texas House Speaker Joe Straus in a letter to continue his stance against any proposed bathroom bill.

Kolkhorst took a jab at an Obama-era federal policy that provided protections for transgender students in public schools. That policy has since been removed by the Trump administration.

“We’re here today because Texas has a tradition of taking care of these issues and not being dictated to by the federal government,” Kolkhorst said.

This is the Lone Star State’s second attempt to pass a bathroom bill. Straus had helped block the previous effort, the Tribune reported.

Rosie O'Donnell promotes 'Push Trump Off A Cliff Again' online game

"Push Trump Off A Cliff Again," O'Donnell tweeted along with a link to the game. The game's name is a riff off of Trump's campaign slogan "Make American Great Again."

Players of the controversial game can either push Trump off a cliff, into a volcano, into a manhole or have him eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Many fans took to Twitter to express their outrage of the 55-year-old's tweet.

I loathe Trump, but this is not cool.— Jack Hodgson (@jackhodgson) July 15, 2017

This is the latest chapter in the long-standing feud between O'Donnell and Trump.

O'Donnell has called Trump "mentally unstable" and has come under fire for asking in 2016, "Barron Trump Autistic?"

Trump has aimed his fair share of offending remarks towards the comedian. He has poked fun at her weight and called her a "loser."

O'Donnel's tweet comes just under two months after fellow comedian Kathy Griffin got into trouble for posing with a bloodied Trump mask.

Griffin later apologized for the photo shoot saying, "I understand how it offends people" adding "I've made a lot of mistakes in my career."

And one of them was not moving to Canada and taking the fat blowhard with you.

Putting it in perspective

Does anyone believe he knew that? If he was working for the Clinton's it would have been a badge of honor.


Poll: Donald Trump is Still More Popular Than Hillary Clinton

It seems that even if the presidential election happened now, after all this time, Hillary Clinton would still not defeat Donald Trump.

A new poll from Bloomberg shows that the president has a 41 percent approval rating among Americans, but his former Democratic rival has only 39. The survey also indicates that Clinton has lost a great deal of support, even from those who voted for her in the 2016 election.

The polls is all the more remarkable since Clinton has mostly stayed out of the spotlight, while Trump currently helms one of the most controversial administrations in American history.

Bloomberg found that the former Democratic candidate has a 58% unfavorable rating compared to Trump’s 55%. Survey participants who voted for Clinton denied that their personal dislike caused her to lose the election, though many said they only voted for her to support the lesser of two evils.

“There’s growing discontent with Hillary Clinton even as she has largely stayed out of the spotlight,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer. “It’s not a pox on the Democratic house because numbers for other Democrats are good.”

The poll also found that Barack Obama has 61 percent favorability rating, and Joe Biden is only one point behind him.

The survey was conducted among 1001 participants earlier this month, and the margin of error was set at +/- 3.1 percent.

He's only been out of office 6 months. Wait until the eggs laid during his tenure start to hatch. Iran is one of them. 

Go here for the laugh of the day:

(Check Wikipedia in 5 years... see where he is then)

After 8 years of Obama name me one achievement making us better off because of his presidency.

Trump says time to 'let ObamaCare fail' after health bill stalls

I've been saying this all along. 

“I think we're probably in that position where we'll just let ObamaCare fail,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We'll let ObamaCare fail, and then the Democrats are going to come to us."

Finally someone agrees with me.


By Alex Pappas Published July 18, 2017 

President Trump said Tuesday he's prepared “let ObamaCare fail” after the collapse of Senate Republicans' latest health care bill, indicating he's willing to move on to tax reform and other issues – and deal with an Affordable Care Act fix down the road. 

“I think we're probably in that position where we'll just let ObamaCare fail,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We'll let ObamaCare fail, and then the Democrats are going to come to us."

He spoke after two more Republican senators came out late Monday against the Senate bill, effectively killing its chances in its current form. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., plans to call a vote on a bill to repeal ObamaCare now and replace it later, but on Tuesday afternoon left the door open to working with Democrats if that fails. 

The White House focused its ire Tuesday on Democratic lawmakers, suggesting they'll regret their opposition. 

"The failure of ObamaCare rests solely on the shoulder of the Democrats. They pushed it through, and they need to own the failure of it," Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. 

But even as the current health law suffers from rising premiums and diminishing coverage options, Republican lawmakers had faced vocal protests from constituents unhappy over the party's replacement legislation. 

The collapse of the bill late Monday leaves unclear how and whether Republicans, now in total control of Congress and the White House, can make good on their campaign promise to scrap the ACA. 

Trump told reporters Tuesday he was “very disappointed” that Republicans haven’t been able to pass legislation after seven years of calling to repeal and replace the law.

“Something will happen … it may not be as quick as we had hoped, but it’s going to happen,” Trump said of passing a health care bill.

Trump also called for getting “more Republicans elected” to make it easier to get his agenda passed in Congress. “I’ll be working very hard for that to happen,” he said.

The president also vowed to continue to work on implementing other campaign promises not yet fulfilled.

“We’re going to win on taxes, we’re going to win on infrastructure,” he said.

On Monday evening, Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas joined Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of Maine in opposition, making passage of the Senate bill impossible.

Republicans needed 50 votes (plus Vice President Pence as a tie-breaker) to pass the bill.

After learning the “Better Care Reconciliation Act” was effectively dead, Trump tweeted late Monday night urging Republicans to “just REPEAL” the Affordable Care Act.

“Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new health care plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!” he said, suggesting a bipartisan plan.

But at least one Republican senator said she’s against repealing the law without replacement legislation.

"As I stated earlier this year, I cannot vote to proceed to repeal the ACA without reform that allows people the choice they want, the affordability they need and the quality of care they deserve," Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Tuesday.

Last month on the Senate floor, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., challenged Republicans and Trump to “start over” and “turn over a new leaf” on bipartisan health care.

“We have an opportunity to go back to the drawing board, we are willing to debate and compromise on health care but we have to be included,” Schumer said on June 28.

But despite the bill imploding and Trump’s guidance, McConnell said, “this does not have to be the end of the story.”

“I regret the effort to repeal and immediately replace will not be successful, but that doesn’t mean we should give up,” McConnell said Tuesday on the Senate floor. “It’s regretful that our Democratic colleagues decided early on that they did not want to engage with us to help deliver that relief, but this does not have to be the end of the story.”
