McCain slams Trump over siding with Putin on Russia meddling

Historically, this site has been pro-Putin. Today, Donald Trump jumped on the Saboteur Train and expressed his belief that Putin told the truth in denying that Russia hacked the 2016 election.

Trump thus split again with the (((Deep State.)))

This is an extraordinary development that promises a period of detente if Trump is able to hold firm.

Straight out of the box, though, came traitor sell out John McCain blasting Trump. Is this POS ever going to die???!!!

Sen. John McCain slammed President Donald Trump on Saturday for saying he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin over senior US intelligence officials when he says his country didn’t interfere in the 2016 election.

“President Trump today stated that he believed Vladimir Putin is being sincere when he denies Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and reiterated that he hopes to cooperate with Russia in Syria,” McCain, a strong critic of the President, said in a statement. “There’s nothing ‘America First’ about taking the word of a KGB colonel over that of the American intelligence community. There’s no ‘principled realism’ in cooperating with Russia to prop up the murderous Assad regime, which remains the greatest obstacle to a political solution that would bring an end to the bloodshed in Syria. Vladimir Putin does not have America’s interests at heart. To believe otherwise is not only naive but also places our national security at risk.”

McCain was referencing remarks Trump made while describing his relationship with Putin and the ongoing investigations into 2016 meddling on Saturday. The president seemed to indicate to reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday that he trusts Putin’s denials more than the comments of former intelligence officials, like former high-ranking intelligence officials James Comey, John Brennan and James Clapper.

“I mean, give me a break, they are political hacks,” Trump said. “So you look at it, I mean, you have Brennan, you have Clapper and you have Comey. Comey is proven now to be a liar and he is proven now to be a leaker. So you look at that and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with them.”

ANTI-TRUMP PROPAGANDA. SOME (((PEOPLE))) PREFER WAR.

Trump told reporters as he flew from Da Nang to Hanoi in Vietnam that he’s done confronting Putin over the issue and took him at his word that Russia did not seek to interfere in the election.

“He said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,” Trump said.

Trump spoke to Putin three times on the sidelines of summit when the Russia meddling issue arose.

“Every time he sees me, he says, ‘I didn’t do that,'” Trump said. “And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it.”

“I think he is very insulted by it,” Trump added.

McCain also criticized Trump’s performance earlier Saturday, calling it “sad” — a favorite word of Trump’s on Twitter — that the President didn’t address human rights during a stop in Vietnam.

“.@POTUS in #Danang & no mention of human rights – Sad,” McCain tweeted.

Trump defended his decision on the plane with reporters, saying he is addressing human rights but also “many other things.”

“Well, I do do it. But I also raise issues on many other things,” he said. “I mean I have an obligation — we lost last year with China, depending on the way you do your numbers, because you can do them a number of ways, anywhere from $350 to $504 billion. That’s with one country.”

McCain has stepped up his criticism of Trump in recent weeks. Last month, he warned against “half-baked, spurious nationalism” while accepting the Liberty Medal from former Vice President Joe Biden.

The Vietnam veteran, who was tortured during his more than five years as a prisoner of war, also appeared to mock Trump’s draft deferments when he criticized people from “the highest income level” who avoided the draft by finding a doctor who “would say that they had a bone spur.” He later said the comment was not specifically about Trump.

Blessed be the peacemakers. Lord, grant Donald Trump the strength to hold fast to his convictions. And grant Vladimir Putin the patience to continue the remarkable restraint he has exhibited during the last few years. Bless these two great leaders in their quest for peace.

Traitor John McCain Kills Tax Reform

U.S. Senator John McCain hurt himself. Aren’t you sad?

It’s his Achilles tendon that’s injured. Add that to his brain tumor and he’s hurting from top to bottom.

Unless …

the story of the brain tumor and the foot injury are psy ops. I’m not sure why the Deep State would produce false medical reports on McCain, but I wouldn’t rule it out.

As to tax reform, if McCain is against it, then on principle I’m for it.

McCain’s hatred of Donald Trump is so intense that he’d rather collapse the economy than help Americans, just so that Trump would get the blame.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

It’s official: The Republican tax reform bill is dead on arrival in the Senate now that John McCain has become the third Republican senator to confirm that he plans to vote against it.

What’s worse for the Trump administration, McCain reportedly wants the bill to receive input from both parties – a criticism that he cited as his reason for voting against the Trump administration’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is particularly problematic because there’s approximately zero chance that any Democratic lawmakers will break ranks to vote with Republicans, despite President Donald Trump repeatedly saying that he expects to win a modicum of bipartisan support

.In recent weeks, John McCain has reiterated his demand that Republicans pass their tax plan through a bipartisan process. McCain voted down his party’s Obamacare repeal bill precisely because it failed to meet this standard. And it will be impossible to pass the House plan – or anything close to it – through anything but a secretive, partisan process.

On Monday, Susan Collins declared her opposition to repealing the tax on multimillion-dollar estates. The current bill includes such a repeal, and many House conservatives seem deeply attached to repealing what Republicans have successfully tagged as “the death tax.” And for months now, Bob Corker has also insisted that he wouldn’t vote for any tax plan that adds even a penny to the debt, even during the first ten years, where Congress would legally be allowed to do so. As it stands, the House plan would increase the deficit by a total of $1.5 trillion over ten years.

And at this rate, it’s unclear if the plan in its current form will even pass the House. Republican lawmakers from blue states hammered Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady about measures in the bill to repeal deductions for state and local taxes, while lowering the cap on the mortgage interest-rate deduction to $500,000. It would also eliminate deductions for student-loan interest. Controversially, it will also add an excise tax for corporations involved in cross-border payments that has drawn the ire of the US business community and its army of lobbyists.

Heh, heh. ZH is looking out for us. Will Goldman get what it wants? Of course, both parties are bought and paid for. There’s only one party–the uniparty, with different wings. One problem for us is that tax law is so complicated that we can’t realistically follow the provisions and how they benefit the oligarchs.

Getting back to McCain …

ZH commenters noticed a couple of things. One is the purple tie. Purple is the color sign of the resistance. The second is that McCain is holding his cane in the wrong hand.

Many of the commenters just wish he would die. That’s the voice of the people.

Samples:

Partial lobomoty so he can’t testify?

Or new Google beta implant?

Never under estimate the healing power of young virgin blood for the vampire class.

Too bad the phony boot is hiding the tracking device on his leg.

Arizona RINO Senator Jeff Flake Declines to Seek Reelection, Slams Trump on Senate Floor to Standing Ovation

Excerpt from AP News

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said Tuesday he would not seek re-election next year, delivering a forceful condemnation of the “flagrant disregard of truth and decency” and bemoaning political complicity in a Senate speech clearly directed at President Donald Trump.

The liars are not Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and (((Stephen Miller,))) all of whom are finally getting out the message of truth about the swamp and the border-jumping invaders.

No, the liars are people like RINO (Republican in Name Only) Jeff Flake, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and most of the rest of them.

Speaking to a rapt audience of other senators, the first-term Arizona lawmaker spelled out his frustration and disappointment in a floor speech before relaying the news that he would not be on the ballot in 2018.

“There are times we must risk our careers,” Flake said. “Now is such a time.”

Flake, you ***hole, you are risking NOTHING. Once out of the Senate you’ll be put into a million dollar a year law firm where you’ll do nothing to earn a legitimate living.

Stop, lying, you dumbass. No one with an ounce of brains is buying what you’re selling.

Flake, who has criticized the path that the Republican Party has taken under Trump, said the impulse “to threaten and scapegoat” could turn America and the GOP into a “fearful, backward-looking people” and a “fearful, backward-looking party.” Flake didn’t mention Trump by name, but clearly was directing his remarks at the president and his administration.

Some fears are justified, you POS. Anyone who would deny that globalism and the New World Order isn’t something to fear is a shill for the globalists.

That’s you, Flake, and most of those who gave you a standing ovation.

Flake, a former House member, is a conservative who favors limited government and free markets but one known to work on bipartisan legislation. Most notably, he has worked on immigration legislation aimed at finding a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

Conservative? Conservatives have conserved nothing. Cuckservative is a better word.

“A political career does not mean much if we are complicit in undermining these values,” he said. He received applause at the conclusion of his remarks.

His extraordinary speech came shortly after Trump had joined Senate Republicans at their weekly policy luncheon, and came a few hours after the president had engaged in a war of words with another retiring Republican senator, Bob Corker of Tennessee.

Republicans and Democrats were upset with the news.

“It is one of the most depressing things that has happened during my time in the Senate,” said Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who called Flake a man of great integrity and principle.

Moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said she was “extraordinarily disappointed” and called Flake a “person of utmost integrity.”

After bucking Trump in a state the president won, Flake is bottoming out in polls. Republicans may be left with a hard-core conservative challenger that might win the primary but lose in the general election.

Flake was facing a challenge from former state Sen. Kelli Ward, who failed in her effort to take out Sen. John McCain last year but has gained some traction this year. Last week, former Trump strategist Steve Bannon attended a fundraiser for her.

Flake was going to lose. So he bailed. He’s no hero, although the Trump-hating media are portraying him as one.

Kudos to Rand Paul, who has apparently decided to side with the populists over the globalists. He’s a bit of a hero today:

Trump Warns McCain: “I fight back”

As a dead man walking, Senator John McCain is free to unleash the evil that lies within his tortured soul.

In the past he was partially constrained by his desire to be reelected. He no longer has that worry. He’s letting it all hang out now. His master, Satan, will be waiting for him at the gates of Hell, welcoming a brother.

CNN

President Donald Trump, hours after Sen. John McCain delivered a speech that repudiated the President, warned the Arizona Republican to “be careful” because at some point he will “fight back.”

McCain, while accepting the Liberty Medal in Philadelphia on Monday night, warned the United States against turning toward “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”

The speech was a repudiation of Trump, who the Arizona Republican has long feuded with, and the worldview that catapulted him to office.
Trump told Chris Plante of “The Chris Plante Show” on Tuesday that he heard the criticism and warned McCain to be careful.

“He was taking shots at you again yesterday,” Plante said. “You heard what he said yesterday, Sen. McCain?”

“Yeah, well I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back,” Trump said. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”

Responding to Trump’s threat, McCain bluntly told reporters Tuesday: “I’ve faced far greater challenges than this.”

McCain and Trump’s feud has dated back years, ever since the then-2016 candidate said the senator wasn’t a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.

“He is not a war hero,” Trump told pollster Frank Luntz in 2015.
“He is a war hero,” Luntz interjected.

“He is a war hero because he was captured,” Trump said, cutting him off. “I like people that weren’t captured, OK? I hate to tell you. He is a war hero because he was captured.”

The feud continued throughout the 2016 campaign, with McCain regularly faulting the Republican standard bearer for comments he made on the campaign trail. McCain withdrew his support for Trump when the “Access Hollywood” video was made public, showing the 2016 Republican nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women.

Both Trump and McCain won re-election, but their feud continued, with the Arizona senator casting a deciding vote against the Republican health care plan.

The act of defiance stung Trump.

“Sen. McCain, you mean the one who voted against Obamacare?” Trump asked, rhetorically, during a sweeping August news conference. “You mean Sen. McCain who voted against us getting good health care?”

This public back-and-forth contributed to McCain’s speech Monday, where he was honored by Democrats and Republicans alike for a lifetime of service. McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.

The Arizona senator and his party’s 2008 presidential nominee described that “half-baked, spurious nationalism” as “unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

I’m certain that Trump has a dossier on McCain as thick as a law book. McCain’s corruption, his womanizing, his treason in Vietnam–all of it just might leak.

Wouldn’t that be just too bad???!!!

McCain on Brain Cancer: “It’s a very poor prognosis.”

John McCain is trying to present himself as a honorable man as he faces his long (or short) good bye.

Most people are not so easily duped.

CNN

Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer is “very, very serious,” the Arizona Republican said in an interview Sunday night, adding that doctors told him “it’s a very poor prognosis.”

“So I just said, ‘I understand. Now we’re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived,'” he said on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

He recalled how he went back to Washington, against his doctors’ requests because it was only 11 days after his brain surgery, to vote on health care.

“I got very choked up,” McCain said, recalling the standing ovation he got on the Senate floor. “And then, of course, you know, all of them coming over and giving me a hug. It was deeply moving, I had never seen anything like that.”

A standing ovation? There is honor among thieves after all.

During the interview, McCain was asked whether his “no” vote on the Senate’s health care bill over the summer was to get back at President Donald Trump for saying he wasn’t a war hero during the campaign.

“If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short,” McCain responded. “You’ve got to move on. And on an issue of this importance to the nation, for me to worry about a personal relationship, then I’m not doing my job.”

And on Trump, McCain refused to say whether he believed he was unfit to be President, instead saying that he trusts the American people for voting for him.

“First of all, I believe in our system. The American people selected Donald Trump to be President of the United States. We have to respect that,” McCain said. “Second of all, he has a very strong national security team around him who I know has significant influence over him.”

When asked whether Trump ever apologized for saying he wasn’t a war hero, McCain said no. He also emphasized he and Trump are from different backgrounds.

“I’d be glad to converse with him. But I also understand that we’re very different people. Different upbringing. Different life experiences,” McCain said. “He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others. I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day.”

McCain should do the honorable thing and die sooner rather than later.

Repeal and Replace: Is “Hero” John McCain’s Obstructionism A Vendetta Against Trump

President Trump’s now viral characterization of Kim Jong Un as “Rocketman” or “Rocket Man” (not sure which is correct) could and should be followed up by nicknaming American Senator John McCain as “Crash” McCain. That’s because McCain has provided the crucial vote to prevent a GOP repeal and replace of Obamacare again. He CRASHED repeal and replace just like he did with his airplanes.

Trump isn’t remaining silent, but he’s not going to call dying McCain (whose tumorous forehead has a noticeable lump) by an offensive nickname. But you should remember the flareup that took place during the election campaign when Trump said McCain was not a hero.

Sneaky McCain didn’t say much in response then. But I think his black heart is carrying forward a vendetta against Trump for Trump’s accurate characterization of him.

President Trump on prospects for Obamacare repeal: “We’re going to do it eventually” https://t.co/UYpqI3w42L https://t.co/oT0NuebI8k

— CNN (@CNN) September 23, 2017

President Trump chided Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) late Friday for opposing a last-ditch plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, insisting the GOP would “eventually” roll back his predecessor’s signature health-care law.

Trump called McCain’s opposition “totally unexpected” and “terrible” during a campaign rally in Huntsville, Ala., where he stumped on behalf of Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) ahead of Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff against former judge Roy Moore.

“John McCain, if you look at his last campaign, it was all about repeal and replace, repeal and replace,” Trump told the crowd. “So he decided to do something different, and that’s fine.”

“We’re going to do it eventually,” Trump insisted of ObamaCare repeal efforts, adding Strange would help the GOP reach the goal.

Trump broadly chastised congressional Republicans for campaigning for seven years “saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace” and failing to deliver on the promise.

“They didn’t care, nobody cared, because they had a president who wasn’t going to sign it,” Trump said, referring to GOP votes to repeal ObamaCare under former President Barack Obama.

“So it didn’t take much courage,” he continued. “I think they voted, what 61 times? Sixty-one times to repeal and replace. They finally get a president who will sign the legislation and they don’t have the guts to vote for it.”

McCain was one of a few GOP senators watched closely ahead of a possible vote next week on the repeal legislation sponsored by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

McCain cast a deciding vote in late July killing a scaled-down ObamaCare repeal bill, joining Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) in voting against the bill.

The Arizona Republican announced Friday he would also vote against the latest repeal measure from Graham and Cassidy, which Republicans hoped to vote on next week ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for approving the bill on a majority vote.

“Songbird” McCain, so nicknamed because of his alleged treason while a North Vietnamese prisoner, is simply a liar and a phony conservative. He’s a moral degenerate.

For the good of the country, he can’t die soon enough.
