Prayers up for Senator McCain

John McCain has led a colorful life. The son of a Navy admiral, he served in Vietnam (a hell of a lot longer than John Kerry) and spent 4 years as a POW in the Hanoi Hilton. What actually happened while he was a captive will never be known. Whether he suffered torture or got special treatment in exchange for cooperating with his enemies is for other people to say.

What is known is that when he returned to civilian life he married a wealthy beer heiress, was elected to the House of Representatives, and later became a senator. He became one of the democrats’ best allies, nearly always siding with them on any important legislation. He handed the presidency to Barack Obama in 2008 and delights in going on television to trash his own party.

Although he has continually angered and frustrated conservatives, he now faces the fight of his life against a formidable foe. It’s a form of cancer called glioblastoma. It was discovered during a minor surgical procedure.

About 20,000 people in the U.S. each year are diagnosed with a glioblastoma. The American Cancer Society puts the five-year survival rate for patients over 55 at about 4 percent.

Because glioblastomas can grow rapidly, the most common symptoms are usually caused by increased pressure in the brain. These symptoms can include headache, nausea, vomiting, and drowsiness.
Glioblastoma can be difficult to treat because the tumors contain so many different types of cells, the association says.

As expected, the tributes have poured in for the senator from all over. Fortunately, he has the best healthcare on the planet, but cancer does not discriminate when it comes to its victims. My grandson Tyler is eight years old and has been doing battle with it for almost two years.

Sen. John McCain diagnosed with malignant brain tumor
In a statement, McConnell said: “John McCain is a hero to our Conference and a hero to our country. He has never shied from a fight and I know that he will face this challenge with the same extraordinary courage that has characterized his life. The entire Senate family’s prayers are with John, Cindy and his family, his staff, and the people of Arizona he represents so well.”

    Trump Blasts Sessions For ‘Unfair’ Russia Recusal — ‘Would Have Picked Somebody Else’

    TRUMP IS USED TO EMPLOYEES WHO DO THEIR JOBS,NOT GO ALONG TO GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THEM
    President Trump lashed out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an interview Wednesday, saying that he would have picked somebody else for attorney general if he had known that Sessions was going to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

    “Sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Trump told The New York Times.

    Trump criticized the Department of Justice — which Sessions heads up — last month over the handling of Trump’s first travel ban, which was held up in court before being replaced by a similar, although narrower, travel ban.

    The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.

    President Trump Reverses Barack Obama’s Discriminatory Anti-Christian Refugee Policy

    No President in US history showed as much hate and disdain for Christian and Jews as former President Barack Hussein Obama.
    His signature bill Obamacare included various articles that were in opposition to the Catholic religion which is against abortion. The Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic group of nuns whose mission is to provide services to the poor, were sued by Obama and forced to provide abortion drugs in spite of the nuns being against abortion. Eventually the sisters took Obama to court and had to go all the way to the Supreme Court before they won their case against Obama.

    Obama’s immigration policies showed a distinct bias against Christians. Although 10% of Syrians were Christian and being murdered by ISIS daily, only 2.4% of immigrants into the US were Christian. At one point in his Presidency he deported persecuted Chaldean Christians fleeing ISIS.

    Trump declines invitation to speak at NAACP convention

    I CAN’T BLAME HIM.
    TRYING TO REACH OUT TO THESE UPSCALE DARKIES COMES TO NO END.THEY JUST WANT TO SEE WHITEY GROVEL SO THEY CAN DISRESPECT HIM.
    “My understanding is that the invitation has been declined for this year,” Sanders told reporters at a briefing.

    She said that while Trump would not speak at the conference, the White House would be happy to have a dialog with the group.

    “We would certainly like to be able to continue to do that,” Sanders said.

    The NAACP did not immediately respond to request for comment.

    David Gregory: Trump “Cannot Quit Maggie Haberman

    On CNN this morning, political analyst David Gregory was discussing the lengthy interview that President Trump granted yesterday to three reporters from the New York Times, including Maggie Haberman. Said Gregory:

    “It’s striking that the president who spends so much time trying to discredit the news media to convince his supporters simply not to believe outlets like the New York Times, in the end cannot quit Maggie Haberman and that’s just the bottom line. Because he wants legitimacy and he knows you have to go to Maggie and her colleagues who are really the journalists of record on this Trump presidency.”

    Pelosi: GOP Budget Proposal ‘Stirs Up Violence’

    What you mean is that leftists can’t control themselves and they become violent, but you want to blame the budget proposal.

    MUELLER CROSSES RED LINE: Special Counsel Investigating POTUS Business Dealings
    Special counsel Robert Mueller just crossed President Trump’s red line, expanding his investigation to include transactions by the Trump Organization.

    As the President warned in a New York Times interview yesterday, Mueller might be making a fatal mistake in probing the Trump family’s finances.

    THIS IS WHY HE WAS SO PISSED THAT SESSIONS STEPPED ASIDE SO THIS PIECE OF TRASH COULD DIG INTO EVERYTHING THE PRESIDENT HAS EVER DONE
    The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.

    Wasserman Schultz May Start Cooperating With House Hacking Probe

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is “negotiating” with the Capitol Police over whether to stop blocking access to a computer seized from her as part of a criminal cybersecurity investigation, Fox News reported Wednesday.

    Soon after resigning as head of the Democratic National Committee in wake of it being hacked, the Florida Democrat’s top information technology (IT) aide, Pakistan-born Imran Awan, was named as the lead suspect in a separate information breach involving House data.

    The Nuclear Option: After Using Americans as Pawns, Democrats Blame Trump for Obamacare Failure

    Politicians far, far away in Washington — advised by armies of bureaucrats whose salaries you pay but you have never met — all huddled in Congress deciding what pills they will give you and how long is long enough for you to be on life support.

    Also, they will decide just how much money you will pay for pregnancy insurance, even though you do not technically have a uterus and your name is not Caitlyn Jenner. (Isn’t it funny how the only way anybody buys something named the “Affordable Care Act” is if the federal government forces them to buy it?)
