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.

β€œI’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.

NYPD Officer Involved In Death Of Eric Garner Learns His Fate

This is not going to sit well with liberals.

Published

on

The New York City police officer who was involved with the July 17, 2014 death of Eric Garner has learned his fate, and it’s probably going to send the radical left into absolute hysterics. The Department of Justice will not bring charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo. Here are the details from TheBlaze: The Black Lives Matter movement called for justice in Garner’s death, saying that the use of a choke hold was a disproportionate response to the alleged illegal sale of cigarettes. The police union has contested that what Pantaleo did was a “seat-belt hold” not a choke hold, a crucial difference since the NYPD prohibits the use of choke holds by officers. A grand jury had already decided not to indict Pantaleo. New York City paid Garner’s family a $5.9 million settlement in 2015. The Department of Justice did not make any decision in this case. Rather, it plans to let the time expire on the five-year window that it had to bring charges against Pantaleo before the statute of limitations protects him from prosecution. Those five years are up on Wednesday. The only remaining punishment that Pantaleo could face at this point comes from the NYPD itself, which is still conducting a disciplinary proceeding. This is news that most definitely is going to spark some sort of protesting, hopefully without violence, as we all know how deeply divided the country is right now along racial lines. Whether or not this officer is actually responsible for Garner’s death is something we may not ever really know, despite the video evidence that exists. Not everything is so black and white. Let’s hope cooler heads prevail and people are able and willing to have civil discussions on the topic.

Social Media Launches Hateful Attacks On Hispanic Woman Working As Customs Officer

Shameful.

Published

on

A woman who reportedly works as a customs officer for the U.S. government has come under heavy attack from radicals on the left for being a Hispanic female in immigration enforcement. Because apparently, since she’s Hispanic, she should automatically be sympathetic to those illegally crossing the border. Sounds pretty racist, doesn’t it? From TheBlaze: Kiara Cervantes, a young Latina woman claiming to work as a customs officer, is taking fire from the internet after she became known as #ICEBae on Twitter. Cervantes, who was reportedly one agent proving security for Vice President Mike Pence during a recent U.S. border visit, went viral on the internet after a photo of her standing outside a detainment center hit the internet. According to Newsweek, which asked which agency she belongs to, “Cervantes said she could not provide any comment until she has spoken with her ’employer.'” On Monday, she tweeted about the attention β€” which came in waves. She also shared a photo of herself in her uniform to Twitter, with a waving emoji. According to the New York Post, Cervantes wrote, “Just woke up … saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me. It’s me β€” I’m a Customs officer based in Texas and yeah, I don’t know what else to say.” Later on Monday, she tweeted, “WOW I am in awe. Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country! … And I love my supporters!” https://twitter.com/kiarace24/status/1150920190043000832 As is often the case in these types of situations, Cervantes spent a good majority of the day responding to these miscreants. “I can’t agree with concentration camps,” she wrote. “But … this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility…
