John McCain Not Returning For Another Senate Term

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.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
