John McCain Not Returning For Another Senate Term

Published

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.

‘National Teacher Of The Year’ Makes Call For Violence Against McConnell

Published

on

A man who was named the “National Teacher of the Year” back in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers recently tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s neighbors should rip a page out of the playbook the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul and violently attack McConnell. According to Rodney Robinson this would make such an individual a “true Kentucky hero.” The neighbor who assaulted Sen. Paul left him with six broken ribs which made it necessary for doctors to remove a part of his lung. Robinson tweeted, “Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.” https://twitter.com/KyleKashuv/status/1344435826688745474 via Daily Wire: Paul’s wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, “I am so disgusted by this I have no words. The 2019 ‘National teacher of the Year’ is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed. This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell.” Robinson eventually deleted the tweet and posted a response to the backlash, which he blamed on “conservative bots“: “I made a Mitch McConnell joke today and the conservative bots are real angry. It’s funny because the joke was made early today and no one said a thing until I promoted black medical awareness.” When he was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2019, the Council of Chief State School Officers said of Robinson, “He creates a positive school culture by empowering his students – many of whom have experienced trauma – to become civically minded social advocates who use their skills and voices to affect physical and policy changes at their school and in their communities,” CNN noted.
