John McCain Not Returning For Another Senate Term

Published

on

John McCain

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain recently published a brand new book where he speaks boldly about his recent battle with cancer, making the announcement that he will not be seeking another term in office.

In an excerpt from the book McCain writes,” This is my last term. If I hadn’t admitted that to myself before this summer, a stage 4 cancer diagnosis acts as an ungentle persuasion.”

McCain also noted in the book that not seeking reelection has enabled him to be more bold in speaking out about the current political climate in America than a lot of his colleagues who are afraid to voice their opinions due to fear of not winning future elections.

“I’m freer than colleagues who will face the voters again. I can speak my mind without fearing the consequences much. And I can vote my conscience without worry.”

Along with dropping the announcement about his last term, the former P.O.W. also made a call for folks on both sides of the aisle to return to teamwork and compromise, focusing on what’s best for the country, putting it ahead of political party by zeroing in on the values all Americans share.

At this point, many folks are curious as to whether or not McCain, who is recovering from the side effects of cancer treatment at home in Arizona, is going to be able to finish out his current term.

There’s been no indication, as of this writing, that the senator is planning on resigning before the end of his current stint in office.

While McCain’s strength in finishing up his term and wisely deciding against running for reelection are to be admired, the call for more comprise can be seen as something negative.

We’ve already seen the product of compromise with the current radical left-wing that exists in Washington. It’s disastrous for the American people and for our freedom.

What it seems we need more of is less compromise from conservatives who run on a strict platform that upholds our liberties and works to improve the economy.

Let’s hope that kind of boldness continues to resurface in the conservative movement.

Biden’s Age Has Democrats Drawing Up Special “Pledge” for Geriatric Joe

As of this writing, no such clause has been floated for fellow democratic candidate Bernie Sanders who is, in fact, older than Biden.

Joe Biden

With Joe Biden “not” running for President in 2020, (wink, wink), the democrats have been able to spend their time fawning over a whole gamut of Oval Office wannabes. From the bizarre antics of dirt-eating Beto O’Rourke, to the racially tone deaf lies of Kamala Harris, the democratic field for our next presidential contest is rife with unintentional humor. And that’s before Joe Biden has even officially announced his presidency.  Make no mistake about it; he’s running, but the political PR firm pulling the elderly Biden’s strings have likely warned the former VP about announcing too early. Biden’s “slip of the tongue” was a cheeky way to gauge interest in his potential bid, and belied the longtime DC dweller’s true intentions. The democrats, however, have had a bit of a trepidation about a Biden candidacy, often citing his 76 years on this planet as a detriment.  Now, they’re taking their old-Joe ageism to the next level. According to a Thursday New York Times report, Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.” This news comes just days after leaked reports that Biden could be considering Stacey Abrams as a possible running mate, hoping to announce both candidacies at once. Abrams is known for her contentious loss in the 2018 Georgia Gubernatorial race, and for her participation decades ago in a flag-burning protest regarding Confederate symbolism on the Peach State’s flag.

Rosenstein Prepares the Democrats for a Major Let-Down in Mueller Report

Rod’s latest, emphatic characterization of Mueller’s final report has taken the wind out of the democratic sails in a BIG way.

Rod Rosenstein

President Donald Trump has been absolutely emphatic in his denouncement of the Robert Mueller-led “Russiagate” probe. “No collusion!”.  “It’s a hoax!”. We’ve heard these sentiments over and over again, and, as Mueller prepares to conclude year two of his wide-ranging investigation, the President has been spot-on so far.  Mueller’s only successes have come from charging low-level, former Trump acquaintances with crimes unconnected to the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, or the Russian government. We also have learned from expert legal observers that we should be expecting the final report to drop sometime soon, based on a number of personnel changes and DC insiders. Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General will be staying on to provide a “heat shield” for the final report…his words, not ours. Rosenstein also detailed a very dreary reality for the democrats in a new letter, explicitly explaining why they shouldn’t be getting their hopes up for some slam dunk against the sitting President. In the letter, Rosenstein makes it clear he believes the Department of Justice will not – and cannot without violating long-standing Department of Justice policy – include disparaging or incriminating information about anybody who has not been charged with a crime. “Punishing wrongdoers through judicial proceedings is only one part of the Department’s mission,” Rosenstein wrote. “We also have a duty to prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnish people who are not charged with crimes.” According to inside sources, the investigation itself will no longer be seeking indictments, ergo, with the President not being indicted, Robert Mueller would be shirking his prosecutorial creed in releasing any information disparaging Donald Trump. Rosenstein is emphatic on this point: “In fact, disclosing uncharged allegations against American citizens without a law-enforcement need is considered to be a violation of a prosecutor’s trust.” And this isn’t some special,…
