Published

Early Monday morning, the White House flag was lowered to half staff over the weekend in memory of Sen. John McCain who passed away from brain cancer. However, on Monday, the flag was raised to full staff prompting a flood of criticism.

President Trump has not made an official proclamation regarding McCain as he has done other prominent figures like Sen. John Glenn, First Lady Barbara Bush, and Rev. Billy Graham.

Trump and McCain had a contentious relationship.

In June 2015, after Trump said of illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S. from Mexico, “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some I assume are good people,” McCain accused him of “firing up the crazies.”

One month later, in Iowa, Trump said he didn’t consider McCain a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam, asserting, “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” After he was criticized, Trump refused to apologize. McCain responded to Trump’s remarks by saying Trump should apologize “to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict.”

McCain was held prisoner in Vietnam for 5 ½ years; roughly one year into his imprisonment, McCain’s father was named commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific. That prompted the North Vietnamese to offer McCain an opportunity to be released. They saw the offer as a propaganda victory and an opportunity to demoralize other American POWs. McCain refused the offer, causing the North Vietnamese to increase his torture with intense beatings; he attempted suicide twice. Two years of his imprisonment were spent in solitary confinement in a windowless 10-by-10-foot cell.

In September 2016, after the tape was released in which Trump spoke of grabbing women “by the p****” and said “you can do anything” to women “when you’re a star,” McCain stated, “Donald Trump’s behavior make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy,” adding there were “no excuses” and that “he alone bears the burden of his conduct.”

In 2017, McCain intensified the anger between the two men when he refused to support the repeal of ObamaCare that Trump and the GOP favored. That tanked the effort by the GOP.

Now, is it possible that Trump put the flag back up so soon because of the contentious relationship he shared with McCain?

One would hope that, despite the fact the man wasn’t exactly dedicated to conservative principles, Trump would at least be able to show him the respect he is due for his military service to his country. It seems a bit childish for the president to react in such a way, but, then again, the current commander-in-chief has been known to hold grudges.

Let’s hope that’s not the case here and that Trump chooses the classier road.

The saga of Hunter Biden is far from over. In fact, we’ve really just began to scratch the surface. A whole bunch of people could potentially serve some serious time behind bars. Not really. That’ll never happen, unfortunately. Anyway, here’s the latest on the Biden crime family – via Daily Caller: Federal investigators obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against one of Hunter Biden’s Chinese business associates, suggesting that the executive was suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government. Prosecutors revealed the existence of at least one FISA warrant against Chi Ping Patrick Ho, known as Patrick Ho, in a Feb. 8, 2018 court filing obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. CONTINUED: Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad. Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest. Hunter Biden was part of a business consortium that sought a partnership with CEFC in May 2017. A Senate report released last month said that an affiliate of CEFC wired $5 million to Biden’s law firm from August 2017 through August 2018. Here’s President Trump on Hunter from a rally a few days ago… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VhA9yMX27U

‘I Think Joe Biden’ & His ‘Family Are Compromised’ By China, Says Hunter Business Partner

How about them apples?

One of the major reasons Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016 was because he wasn’t indebted to anybody, despite the lies lefties pushed with Russiagate. He could’ve financed his campaign himself, if he wanted to. That’s not the case with Joe Biden. And the former VP is as corrupt as it gets. From The Daily Wire: Tony Bobulinski, a whistleblower who was a former business partner of Hunter Biden, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night that he believes that the Biden family, including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, is compromised by China.

Kamala Harris, among other prominent Democrats, Fox News has learned. An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase one domestic contacts/ projects” and dated May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “key domestic contacts for phase one target projects.” The email is unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son. It’s too bad the mainstream media refuses to tell the American people.
