Juanita Broaddrick slams Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake for praising Bill Clinton following McCain funeral

Bill Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick slammed retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake (R) on Sunday for calling the former president “decent” and urged the unpopular senator to retire ASAP.
Broaddrick was responding to a tweet that Flake shared after attending Saturday’s memorial service for his fellow Arizona senator, John McCain, at the Washington National Cathedral. Flake tweeted a photograph of Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama sitting together at the memorial, with the caption, “decency wins” — but Broaddrick was having none of it.

Broaddrick blasts Flake for defending Clinton
Broaddrick has accused Clinton of raping her in a hotel room when she was volunteering for his campaign for governor of Arkansas in the 1970s. She is the author of You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton.
Broaddrick’s charges have been quietly ignored for years, and Broaddrick says that Hillary Clinton thanked her for her silence before she went public with the allegations. Her accusations have received renewed attention amid the #MeToo movement.
Bill Clinton’s reputation for sexual impropriety was on full display just a day before Flake’s tweet when the former president appeared to ogle pop singer Ariana Grande at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, where Grande was performing. Clinton’s lecherous staring was widely criticized and mocked on social media.

McCain’s death doubled as the symbolic loss of “decency” to those who blame President Donald Trump for the vanishing of politeness in politics. But to critics, the pomp and circumstance surrounding the week of services for McCain was a hypocritical display of piety by the powerful.

James Woods Delivers Reality Check to McCain Funeral & Trump Haters
VIDEO
BY CILLIAN ZEAL 
SEPTEMBER 3, 2018 AT 6:53AM
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/james-woods-delivers-reality-check-mccain-funeral-trump-haters/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=conservativetribune&utm_content=2018-09-03&utm_campaign=manualpost
John McCain’s funeral turned into a political affair, because of course it did.

We’re not going to go through all of the various political statements made during the obsequies for the late war hero and Arizona senator.

Suffice it to say we all know that McCain was used as a stand-in for a kind of “bipartisanship,” even though most of those who spent last week singing McCain’s praises were more than happy to paint the same man as a far-right reactionary unless he was disagreeing with President Donald Trump. Then McCain was diagnosed with cancer and became a full-time bipartisan hero to this section of the peanut gallery.

Now, it’s worth pointing out that Jeff Flake, Arizona’s other senator, isn’t necessarily one of those individuals. Still, the NeverTrump Republican was willing to use McCain as a proxy in his battle against the White House — and conservative actor James Woods was just as willing to point out his hypocrisy.

First, this was the tweet that Flake sent out in the wake of McCain’s funeral, which wasn’t exactly subtle:

Sure, Hayes may think that the right’s belief that Bill Clinton ought to be held to account for real rape allegations that have been levied against for many years (as opposed to a raft of specious allegations that emerged right around election time for Donald Trump) is “cynical and hypocritical,” but he believes that, yes, maybe we ought to consider the possibility that Clinton is a rapist.

Oh, and just in case you were still on the fence here, decency didn’t win at another funeral the former president attended last week:

If you’re going to politicize John McCain’s funeral, using William Jefferson Clinton as a paragon of decency proves how bankrupt this entire “bipartisanship” argument was.

Do you think that those politicizing McCain’s death are being hypocritical?
Yes No

There was no bipartisanship when Juanita Broaddrick or Kathleen Willey came forward with accusations against Bill Clinton.

Both of these women were smeared as star-struck fabulists — as was Monica Lewinsky, until the White House realized she had a certain blue dress. And the swamp-dwellers in Washington considered this guy’s presence preferable to that of Donald J. Trump because, you know, “decency.”

If decency and bipartisanship ever won in the Washington establishment, Clinton would have been sitting in the Richard Nixon section for disgraced former presidents forced to leave office. Funny how that didn’t work back in 1998 — or really, any time McCain or other Republicans weren’t doing the Democrats’ bidding.

Thankfully, James Woods gave the media (and Jeff Flake) a bit of a reality check.

Iraq Vet Shares Her Heartbreaking Response to Bush Trashing Trump at McCain Funeral
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/iraq-vet-bush-trashing-trump/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=conservativetribune&utm_content=2018-09-03&utm_campaign=manualpost

SEPTEMBER 2, 2018 AT 3:51PM
Former President George W. Bush was among those invited to attend and speak at Saturday’s memorial service for late Sen. John McCain.

His words, while well spoken, seemed to some to also be yet another political jab at a sitting president — something he said during former President Barack Obama’s tenure was inappropriate and “bad for the country.”

While some members of the public cheered his words as justified, not all agreed with that sentiment.

One woman, an Iraq War veteran, took particular exception to Bush’s participation in the cavalcade of the politicization of a funeral:

Mrs. Dirty Driver
@guntotinchick

During Bush’s eulogy for McCain, he made several pointed references, according to a CBS News transcript.

At one point, Bush spoke about McCain’s confrontational nature: “At various points throughout his long career, John confronted policies and practices that he believed were unworthy of his country.”

“To the face of those in authority, John McCain would insist: We are better than this.  America is better than this.”

Mediaite noted several excerpts that read like subtle digs at Trump. “Bush — who defeated McCain in the 2000 Republican presidential primary — said that the Arizona senator ‘detested the abuse of power and could not abide bigots and swaggering despots.'”

Was Bush's eulogy for McCain out-of-line?
Yes No

“He respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators.”

Some on social media denied any kind of bashing of Trump took place. Some emphasized political harmony, and the establishment media was quick to point out an exchange between Bush and former first lady Michelle Obama.

It involved Bush passing a piece of candy from his wife, Former First Lady Laura Bush, to Obama. It was cheered as a tender moment between former political rivals.

But for all the seeming embrace of unity across political lines by the establishment media and others, that was not all that they were talking about. A common — and contradictory — refrain through establishment media’s reporting was also that President Donald Trump was being bashed by one speaker after another at the funeral.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews even referred to McCain’s funeral as “a statement of resistance.” He was joined on “AM Joy” by a 2008 senior campaign adviser for McCain, Steve Schmidt, who went further, stating, “there was an inherent political meaning in this funeral.”

“And it was a fundamental rebuke to the vileness, the corruption the self-centeredness, the selfishness, the cruelty that we see emanate from the Oval Office in the form of President Donald J. Trump every day,” he claimed.

For all the decrying of Trump that comes from some, something that continually gets missed is how he got to the Oval Office. Voters made it clear all during his campaign — and since — that they were sick of the status quo.

If the elites don’t like this sentiment, they only have themselves to blame for it.

Former McCain aide says he wanted a Hispanic female to replace him

A former McCain aide offered some insight on who McCain would have wanted to succeed him in office.

Rick Davis, who was McCain’s campaign manager, thinks McCain would have wanted a “Hispanic woman” to take his place in office.

More Progressive than Conservative
Most hardcore conservatives have long been at odds with Senator McCain’s politics.

Immigration is generally at the core of those battles.

In recent years, McCain has softened on immigration.

He was a DACA supporter and openly supported looser immigration laws for our borders.

As such, he was a vocal opponent of Trump as well as the zero-tolerance policy of the administration.

Not His Choice
The funny thing is, though, it is not up to McCain or anyone else other than the actual voters as to who eventually wins the seat.

Based on how angry conservative Arizona residents were at McCain’s lax views on immigration, it is a pretty safe bet the person that runs will be more in line with Trump’s agenda.

Speculation
Now that McCain has passed, the governor will have to appoint someone to fill McCain’s seat until the next election takes place.

Cindy McCain, the Senator’s widow, is already a name being thrown around by pundits.

When Davis was asked about that, he did not exactly dismiss the idea.

Instead, he chose to dodge the question, stating, “I’m not going to address that at all.”

Since McCain did not step down from the seat before May 30, the seat will not be part of the upcoming elections.

Do You Think Cindy McCain Will Be Appointed?
Yes
No
With there being nothing in the state’s constitution to call for a special election, it is unlikely we will see one take place.

However, Senator Jeff Flake’s seat is up, so this will give the GOP a better gauge of the temperature in the state for putting a candidate forth that voters will get behind as well as someone that will support Trump’s agenda.

McCain’s Battle
Whether you agree with his politics or not, you have to feel for the battle faced by McCain and his family.

To see someone wither away fighting cancer, well, that is something nobody wishes upon anyone.

McCain finally succumbed to the disease this weekend.

Senator McCain passed barely a day after it was announced he would no longer seek treatment for his condition.

Somehow, his family has been able to keep their heads up, constantly keeping the public informed.

That included his wife sending out a tweet that evoked very emotional support from McCain’s supporters…

Bipartisan Relationship
Although they represented two different parties, Hillary apparently had a decent working relationship with Senator John McCain.
That fact will no doubt create little love among Trump supporters regarding both the deceased senator and Hillary Clinton.
During a Sunday interview, Hillary described a man she seemed to know rather well.

Clinton stated, “I saw someone who revered the values of our country, and he is always thinking about America’s place in history and America’s place in the world.”
She also called McCain, “a patriot” and stated that she considered him to be her “friend.”
Clinton further stated she used McCain’s concession speech in 2008 as the framework for her own concession speech after losing to Trump.

Shots at Trump
Of course, it would not be a Hillary interview if she did not take a few shots at Trump along the way.
Hillary claims she was giving Trump the benefit of the doubt and trying to heal the country when people were so visibly upset.

What she failed to mention was the fact she immediately started to take shots at Trump, doing the exact opposite of what she was asking of her supporters.
Are You Sick of Hillary Clinton?
Yes
No
Oddly enough, Hillary also mentioned the fact McCain did not like the “personal attacks” that seem to come so naturally in politics.

It looks like both Clinton and her “friend” McCain did not practice what they preached when it comes to President Trump.

No matter what President Donald Trump does, it never seems to be enough for the far-left mainstream media.
Trump’s economic policies spur a healthy economy, and Obama somehow gets the credit. Trump kicks a real-life Nazi out of the country, and his immigration policies are attacked. Trump offers prayers and condolences, and it’s somehow never enough.
The most recent example involves Trump’s dealings with the passing of Sen. John McCain.
No matter what Trump does to address McCain’s passing, in the eyes of the media, he’s wrong.

Official government code actually dictates that the flag be lowered to half-staff only for the day of death and the full day afterwards for the passing of a senator. Trump fulfilled that obligation. Not that it matters to the far-left.

Now, Trump has issued an official statement on McCain’s passing, and it’s pretty obvious where the far-left will try to attack him.

The New York Times reports that John McCain has asked former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama to give the eulogies at his funeral, leaving President Donald Trump out of the process.
“Under initial plans for Mr. McCain’s funeral, Vice President Mike Pence was to attend, but not President Trump, who clashed repeatedly with Mr. McCain,” The Times reported.
That quarrel had come up right around the time of McCain’s last book earlier this year, which claimed that the president was neglecting our traditional allies and cozying up to strongmen.
Reports also surfaced that McCain would prefer Pence to attend in Trump’s stead, a move that prompted some criticism from the Republican side.
No official details about the funeral have been released, but if plans hold it would appear that the the president will be left out of the funeral entirely. The McCain family has not responded publicly to any of the Trump administration’s messages of condolence or announced any alteration in the funeral plans — a snub the left will no doubt be harping on for days.

Trump and McCain had a long history of verbal sparring that began in the earliest days of Trump’s campaign, something that often spilled out onto the Senate floor. As with most political rivalries, however, in the wake of McCain’s death, the Trump administration had seemed to put aside any disagreements as best as possible.

Yes, one can understand that the eulogies have long been set and that it’s certainly the choice of John McCain.
However, an absolute snub of the first family, even in terms of issuing a message, is carrying a petty rivalry well too far — especially considering the president’s personal message and his administration’s condolence.
Not only does seem small for a man who looms so large, it merely helps a left that was all too happy to attack McCain viciously until he became sick.

Trump Hit With Fox News Surprise Attack Over Condolence Message He Sent McCains

Sometimes it seems like President Donald Trump can’t win.

If Trump ever somehow walked on water, his critics would point out that he can’t swim.

But while those outlandish criticisms have become par for the course from places like CNN or MSNBC, Trump has often found allies within the ranks of Fox News.

That wasn’t the case on Saturday when Fox News host Brit Hume took a swipe at Trump on Twitter.

Now, for the sake of fairness, Trump should never be above criticism. Nobody should be.

There have certainly been times where Trump has warranted criticism. But paying respects and offering condolences to Sen. John McCain’s family? That absolutely should not be something worth criticizing.
Unless you’re Hume, apparently.

“Still not a kind word about McCain himself,” Hume tweeted in response to Trump.
Did the president's message of condolence deserve criticism?
Yes No

What? Why is that a criticism? Part of the shock over this is the fact that Hume is ripping a page directly out of the far-left Hollywood elitists’ playbook.

I’ve always thought Hume was a fairly straightforward news analyst who’s able to stick to the facts and not let biases or opinions get in the way of news. Clearly, I may have misjudged what I’ve seen on television.

What exactly would Hume have preferred? Trump be disingenuous and fake about his contentious relationship with McCain?

That would’ve been a disservice to Trump and, frankly, a bigger disservice to McCain and his family.

It should also be noted that someone’s passing obviously calls for some semblance of respect, which Trump adhered to. But it shouldn’t automatically erase all of the things you disagreed with or immediately make someone a saint. A glaring example of that is the outpouring of unabashed adulation Michael Jackson received when he passed, despite several scandals involving the sexual abuse of children.

RELATED: Delusional: MSNBC Gets Rare Ratings Win over Fox News Based on Nothing

Much in the same way that Jackson’s death shouldn’t supersede whatever bad he may have allegedly done, Trump shouldn’t be expected to forgive and forget the times he’s butted heads with McCain.

It may be a controversial take to maintain decorum while still questioning someone’s legacy, but it’s not like Trump was rude in the wake of McCain’s death.

And to be clear, Trump may not have even considered the implications of his tweet. At the same time, there may not have been any hidden meaning or ulterior agenda in Trump’s tweet.

Maybe, just maybe, Trump’s tweet offering condolences was just that and nothing more.

Instead of ripping him, perhaps Trump should be commended for offering prayer to the family of a man who he had such virulent ideological differences with — a family, by the way, that left Trump off the guest list for McCain’s funeral.

Say what you will about Trump, Mr. Hume, but that tweet is not something that should or needs to be scrutinized.

McCain Attacks Trump From Beyond the Grave: Left Note Before Death
https://www.westernjournal.com/mccain-attacks-trump-beyond-grave-left-note-death/?
By Randy DeSoto
August 27, 2018 at 1:46pm
Sen. John McCain appeared to take some last no so veiled swipes at President Donald Trump in a farewell message read Monday in Phoenix, charging that “tribal rivalries” and hiding “behind walls” weakens the United States.
McCain died on Saturday at his home near Sedona, Arizona from a brain tumor at the age of 81. A farewell message from the Vietnam War veteran and former prisoner of war was read by close friend and former presidential campaign manager Rick Davis.
After speaking about the country’s best qualities, McCain said, “We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all corners of the globe.”
He added, “We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”

The general tenor of the message was in emphasizing the strength and resilience of the United States, and the privilege and reward he felt in dedicating his life to the nation’s service.
“‘Fellow Americans’ — that association has meant more to me than any other. I lived and died a proud American. We are citizens of the world’s greatest republic, a nation of ideals, not blood and soil,” McCain said.
Do you think Trump responded appropriately to the death of Sen. McCain?
Yes No

“We are blessed and are a blessing to humanity when we uphold and advance those ideals at home and in the world,” he added. “We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history. We have acquired great wealth and power in the process.”
The late senator drew his statement to a close drawing from his 2008 concession speech to rival Barack Obama urging Americans not to lose heart, in what he described as the country’s “present difficulties.”
“Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here,” McCain stated. “Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history.”
Trump received criticism in the media for failing to mention McCain’s service to the country in a tweet offering condolences to his family on Saturday.
However, on Monday, the White House issued a statement from the president, which read in part, “Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Sen. John McCain’s service to our country and, in his honor, have signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment.”

McCain reportedly did not want Trump to attend his funeral.
Trump said that Vice President Mike Pence will speak at a ceremony Friday at the U.S. Capitol honoring McCain.
The commander-in-chief added that White House chief of staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and National Security Adviser John Bolton have been asked to represent the administration at services for McCain.

Senator Arpaio? Arizona Governor to Choose Replacement for McCain
https://www.westernjournal.com/senator-arpaio-arizona-governor-choose-replacement-mccain/?
By Jack Davis

Within the U.S. Senate, no one may emerge to fill the shoes of Arizona Republican John McCain, who died Saturday.
However, one person will be selected by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to fill the next two years of the term McCain won in 2016, The Washington Times reported.
Under Arizona law, Ducey has a wide open field. The only restriction on him is that the Republican governor must pick someone from the same party as McCain, which is where the current state of Arizona politics could make the selection process an extension of the primary battle currently taking place in the GOP ranks.
The retirement of Republican Sen. Jeff Flake means that Arizona has a primary Tuesday in which Republicans will choose the GOP candidate who will represent the party in the November election.
U.S. Rep. Martha McSally is competing against former state lawmaker Kelli Ward and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

TRENDING: Scandal Brings Down Entire West Virginia Supreme Court, Interim Judges Named
The most recent polling shows McSally leading her rivals, according to RealClear Politics.
So if McSally wins, “Mr. Ducey may face pressure from some corners of his state to name one of the others to fill Mr. McCain’s seat,” according to The Washington Times. That would put Arpaio in the running.
Whoever Ducey names will serve through the end of 2020 when Arizona will have a special election to fill the final two years of the final term McCain won.
Although in the year since McCain said he had brain cancer there has been speculation of whom Ducey might choose, he has kept any thoughts to himself.
The Arizona Republic recently listed names it thought were contenders for the seat.
Those names were headed by Cindy McCain, the late senator’s widow, but not everyone was happy at the news.

Is it too soon to be discussing a successor for Sen. John McCain?
Yes No .
Ducey has only mentioned one name in discussion for the seat. He has said he would not appoint himself, The Washington Post reported.
RELATED: Vox Writer Faces Backlash for Trashing McCain Minutes After Death Announcement
Ducey is also facing re-election this fall, the Arizona Republic reported.
“Electorally, I don’t think that this (appointment issue) affects (Ducey) one way or another,” said Republican strategist Chuck Coughlin, who said any appointment may not take place for weeks.
“I think he’ll do the right thing and get through it, and will do something John would be happy with,” he said.
“If there’s a desire to have some family member fulfill the term, I imagine he (Ducey) would be OK with it,” he said. “If he makes a pick of somebody else, it’s going to be a conservative Republican who, I would think, he would have great confidence in. So, I don’t think there’s going to be any impact.”

Before McCain Was Their Hero Fighting Trump, Media Called Him Unhinged Racist
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/mccain-hero-fighting-trump-media-called-unhinged-racist/?
BY BENJAMIN ARIE
AUGUST 27, 2018 AT 5:27AM
You can tell a lot about the weather by looking at what the wind is doing — and you can learn a lot about politics by noticing how narratives change over time.
The political winds have shifted a lot when it comes to the late Arizona Sen. John McCain, particularly from the liberal media. McCain, of course, died on Saturday after battling with brain cancer.
Tributes and acknowledgements poured in from across the political spectrum, with mourners ranging from George W. Bush to Barack Obama offering kind words about the long-serving senator and military veteran.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with being civil when a man like McCain passes, even in light of the objections many differences have had with him in the past.
Somewhat surprisingly, the left also took the opportunity to put the former Republican presidential candidate on a pedestal … but the way the same liberals attacked him just a few years ago is an eye-opening example of how narratives work.
TRENDING: South African Radical Admits Trump Is Right: They’re Coming for White People’s Land
When you compare how left-leaning outlets spoke of McCain after his death versus when he was alive, it’s hard to think of a more dramatic 180-degree reversal in tone.
Two photos show McCain in unflattering and flattering ways.
Left: A picture the Huffington Post used to illustrate 2012 piece titled “The Unhinging of John McCain.”
Right: Part of one of the photos the leftist website used in a mourning spread titled “17 Photos to Commemorate John McCain’s Life.”
There seems to be one common theme: The same outlets that savaged the senator a decade ago are now singing his praises now that they can use his passing to take shots at President Donald Trump.
That’s exactly what several pundits including independent journalist Mike Cernovich pointed out on Twitter. A series of screenshots demonstrate how eagerly outlets like The Huffington Post trashed and slandered McCain when he was a leading Republican, only to seemingly develop bipolar disorder the moment he died.
“They all hated McCain, now they use his death to attack Trump. It’s a bunch of lies,” Cernovich wrote. He backed that opinion up with a series of tweets from Cher, the celebrity singer and outspoken leftist.

Remembering Senator John McCain, Friend of Israel & the Jewish People

Remembering Senator John McCain, Friend of Israel & the Jewish People
Sen. McCain was a staunch supporter of Israel and a relentless voice for civility and decency in public policy.

John McCain, the long serving US Senator, war hero, former presidential candidate and long-time conscience of the nation, has died at the age of 81. In service to the nation that spanned six decades, Sen. McCain championed human rights, defense spending, campaign finance reform, and was a relentless voice for civility and decency in public policy. He was also a great friend and supporter of Israel.

Here are four unique ways Sen. McCain connected with the Jewish community through his long years of service.

Support for Soviet Jews
One of John McCain’s earliest political positions was support for Soviet Jews. Sen. McCain came to national prominence for his incredible bravery during the Vietnam War. The son and grandson of US naval officers, John McCain followed in his family’s footsteps and became a naval pilot during the Vietnam War. He was shot down in 1967, and was held in inhuman conditions and tortured for five years, until his release from a Vietcong prison in 1973.

His time as a POW made McCain acutely aware of the values of freedom and human rights. “I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else’s,” McCain later recalled. “I loved it because it was not just a place, but an idea, a cause worth fighting for.” For the rest of his life, he remained fiercely committed to supporting human rights.

In his first job after coming home, McCain worked as the US Navy’s liaison to the Senate. One of his roles was to accompany Sen. Henry Jackson (D-Washington) – a strong supporter and defender of Soviet Jews – to Israel. Sen. McCain later recalled his first moments in the Jewish state: “I will never forget at the there was a crowd of people that were there to show their appreciation for (Sen. Jackson), and he stopped some in the crowd and told us to stop so that he could greet Natan Sharansky’s wife...I will never forget that...as long as I live.”

At the time of that visit, Sharansky was being held in a Soviet prison, but years later, after he was released, Sharansky once again inspired John McCain. “Some years ago,” McCain wrote, “I heard Natan Sharansky, the human rights icon, recount how he and his fellow refuseniks in the Soviet Union took renewed courage from statements made on their behalf by President Ronald Reagan.” That reminded him of his own anguish as a prisoner, when he took comfort from the thought that others had not forgotten him and were working for his release. McCain identified on a deep, visceral level with the plight of Soviet Jews who yearned for freedom and right to move to the Jewish homeland they longed for.

Staunch Friend of Israel
Since entering the Senate in 1986, John McCain was an outspoken supporter of Israel. “I’m a student of history,” the Senator recalled, explaining that “anybody who is familiar with the history of the Jewish people and with the Zionist idea can’t help but admire those who established the Jewish homeland. I think it’s remarkable that Zionism has been in the middle of wars and great trials and it has held fast to the ideals of democracy and social justice and human rights.”
Sen. McCain supported a strict stance on Iran, opposing Iranian nuclear ambitions. Appearing on Israeli television in 2008, McCain promised Israelis, “I have to look you in the eye and tell you that the United States of America can never allow a second Holocaust.” Sen McCain visited Israel dozens of times over the years, and was a steadfast ally of close US-Israeli relations.

Jewish Political Ally
Through his long career in the Senate, John McCain was a voice for civility and reason. He often reached across the aisle to work with senators who didn’t share his party nor his views. Perhaps nowhere was this more apparent than in Sen. McCain’s long fight for campaign finance reform, one of his signature pieces of legislation.

As outside money increasingly swayed elections in the 1990s, Sen. McCain became determined to act to curb such “soft money” from distorting elections. A conservative Republican, John McCain nevertheless teamed up with a Jewish liberal Democrat, Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, to tackle the issue. Despite representing very different political world views, the two Senators worked on legislation to regulate political donations, and lobbied their fellow Senators to support their efforts.

The resulting 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (colloquially known as McCain-Feingold) sought to limit outside money in political races. Although it was repeatedly challenged (and eventually rendered toothless by the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United v FEC decision), Senators McCain and Feingold remained close, counting each other as good friends.

Jewish Best Friend
Ever the political maverick, John McCain bucked convention in another way too, becoming the best of friends with Sen. Joe Lieberman, formerly Democrat from Connecticut and an Orthodox Jew. McCain and Lieberman, as well as Sen. Lindsey Graham (Republican of South Carolina), became extremely close, dubbing themselves the “Three Amigos”. Together they would travel to conflict zones – often similarly dressed in open-necked button down shirts – and emerged as a strong voice in the Senate for a robust foreign policy based on upholding human rights around the world.

The friendship between McCain and Lieberman seems to have run particularly deep. When Sen. Lieberman changed his party affiliation from Democrat to Independent in 2006, that freed him to formally endorse McCain when he ran for president in 2008. After John McCain became ill with cancer, Joe Lieberman said that being “John McCain’s friendship has been one of the great blessings of my life.”

The Three Amigos

His many years of travelling and spending time with Joe Lieberman gave John McCain an appreciation for Judaism and Jewish ritual. In a memorable speech at the Israeli embassy in 2012 honoring Sen. Lieberman, McCain reminisced about walking Joe Lieberman home from the Senate on Friday afternoons, when Shabbat began early and Sen. Lieberman was unable to drive. He recalled waking up groggily on an airplane to see Sen. Lieberman wearing a tallit and saying Jewish prayers. McCain joked about all the kosher food he’d eaten in Sen. Lieberman’s company, and joked about Shabbat elevators. (“Pushing all those buttons – and nothing!”)

Mourning a Hero
In this age of hyper-partisan fury, John McCain stood out as a rare voice of civility. Friends and even political foes have described him as a beacon of courtesy and decency.

“He loved Israel and believed in its righteousness and always supported its security,” recalled Tzipi Livni, former Foreign Minister and leader of Israel’s Labour Party. “I had the privilege of working with him and will always remember the rare person he was” she explained; “Israel owes him a big thanks.”

In the US, Sen. Chuck Schumer (Democrat from New York) has already proposed naming the Senate building in which McCain had his offices after the Senator. Despite being from different parties and reflecting different worldviews, Sen. Schumer explains that Sen. McCain’s decency bridged political divides. “As you go through life, you meet few truly great people. John McCain was one of them.”

Celebrities React to John McCain’s Death by Attacking Trump

Any politician accrues rivalries in life. This is a given in a field where conflict is inevitable. And normally, these rivalries are put aside in death.

As you are no doubt aware by now, Sen. John McCain of Arizona died of brain cancer Saturday at the age of 81. He was first elected to Congress in 1982 and did not shy away from a fight. He would reach across the aisle to members of the Democrat Party if he liked them, but he would have no qualms about publicly fighting with fellow Republicans if he did not like them.

John McCain did not like Donald Trump. This is a fact that will surprise no American.

Even players in the roughest of contact sports will pause to pay their utmost respects, however, when a gladiator is taken off of the field. Rivalries tend to melt away, at least for a moment of silence.

That’s especially true when that gladiator isn’t just a metaphorical one. McCain spent five-and-a-half years as a POW in Vietnam, undergoing torture so brutal he couldn’t lift either of his arms above his head for the decades he lived afterwards.

It is a time when all pause and remember the life of someone who gave so much, no matter what their differences may have been, in the field of policy.

Celebrities with the courtside seats, however, were more than willing to use the death of a man to bludgeon another politician they didn’t like.

Breitbart compiled just a few of the grotesqueries we saw from the blue-checkmarked contingent on Twitter in the wake of McCain’s death.

Kathy Griffin tweet about the death of Sen. John McCain was as vile as it was obscene. It was low even for her dismal standards.

Griffin would later clarify that “Couldn’t disagree more with Senator McCain on policy” but that she thought he was a hero, a sentiment I’m not certain she expressed during the 2008 campaign or at any time before he became useful in her bizarre jihad against the president.

Just out of curiosity — did any of these liberal individuals or organizations think they were doing the McCain family or American politics a favor by acting this atrociously when the White House was treating this with the gravity it deserved?

As news spread Saturday about the death of Arizona Sen. John McCain and tributes poured in, one very public political rivalry was put aside in a very solemn way.
In a tweet released shortly after the death of the lawmaker and war hero was announced, President Donald Trump expressed condolences to the McCain family and paid his respects.

“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain,” Trump wrote in the tweet.

“Our hearts and prayers are with you!”

“We honor his lifetime of service to this nation in our military and in public life. His family and friends will be in our prayers. God bless John McCain.”

It wasn’t any secret that Trump and McCain weren’t the best of friends. Their rivalry was bookended with a comment candidate Trump made about McCain’s prisoner-of-war status and McCain’s final book, in which he chastised the president’s foreign policy, as well as requested the president not attend his funeral.

In between, McCain was seen as obstructionist on many administration policies.

Politics can be a cruel game, and a contact sport that so often produces hits that leave a mark. Given that, expect Trump’s enemies to focus on their enmity.

There’s no official word from the White House or the McCain camp as to what plans to honor the senator will be made. Make no mistake, though: They will be made. There are times to put political differences aside, and McCain’s service to the country deserves to to be honored in full.

Senator John McCain dies of brain cancer aged 81
Republican Senator John McCain has died aged 81 after battling a rare form of brain cancer. The former presidential candidate had been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in the summer of 2017.
"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018," McCain's office said in the statement. "With the Senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years."

McCain entered politics in 1980. He was elected to the US House of Representatives in November 1982; and to the Senate in 1986. Nicknamed “the maverick” for his willingness to break the party line in his fight for campaign finance reform and against the tobacco industry, McCain distinguished himself as a Republican, eventually mounting an unsuccessful bid for the presidency against Barack Obama in 2008.

A quintessential neoliberal Republican, McCain emerged in recent years as one of the loudest voices against President Donald Trump from within the GOP. Bashing Trump on immigration, on healthcare, on his rhetoric, and on meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, McCain went as far as to disinvite President Trump from his funeral earlier this year.

His never-Trump brand of conservatism earned him applause from even progressive Democrats, and criticism from more non-interventionist Republicans like Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who said last year “we’re very lucky John McCain’s not in charge, because I think we’d be in perpetual war.”

In the foreign policy arena, McCain was a consummate interventionist. Eager to drum up support for war in faraway lands, the Arizona Senator once took to the stage to sing about it.

Senator McCain clamored for war in Syria before other Western states started to hum to the same tune, and was eager to ingratiate himself with “moderate rebels.” The senator repeatedly lobbied for “rebels” to be given military aid from the US, and called for cruise-missile strikes on the country’s legitimate government.

In Libya, he also praised the “heroic” actions of anti-government rebels, many of whom were in fact connected to Al-Qaeda. Like in Syria, McCain called for military aid for the rebels and cruise-missile strikes on government targets.

Syria is now in the seventh year of a bloody civil and foreign-proxy conflict, and Libya is a failed state and a center of the modern slave trade since its government was toppled.

Further back, McCain lobbied for and supported the US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which directly cost America an estimated $1.7 trillion as of 2016, and cost tens of thousands of civilian lives. On Iraq, McCain said that US troops should occupy the war-torn country for “maybe 100” years.

And most recently, McCain turned his attention to Russia, whose president he accused of leading an “assault on the foundation of our democracy.” McCain’s assertion, made in his latest book ‘A Restless Wave’, was not backed with any evidence, but that did not stop the Republican firebrand from calling for the US to “cyber bomb” Russia.

John Sidney McCain III was born on August 29, 1936, on a US Naval base in Panama, which at the time was under the control of the United States. In joining the navy, McCain followed a family tradition –both his father and grandfather were admirals– though he proved a less-than-model pupil, finishing fifth from bottom in a class of 895.

McCain went on to serve as a combat pilot in the Vietnam War, where he was captured and detained –at one point in the notorious Hoa Loa prison, nicknamed the ‘Hanoi Hilton’– as a prisoner of war. McCain endured unspeakable torture and deprivation until his release in 1973. After release, he was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying Cross.

The US should cyber-attack Russia in retaliation for all its election meddling, John McCain has argued in a new book. The senator has an excellent track record when it comes to peddling pre-emptive strikes based on dubious claims.
McCain, a veteran US senator who represents Arizona and Raytheon, and usually never in that order, has penned a new treatise, ‘A Restless Wave,’ which is set for release on May 22. The Tomahawk missile-loving tome calls for a hardline approach to Russia, and for the United States to embrace its role as the world’s policeman.

In his book, McCain writes that he is eager “to make Putin deeply regret his assault on the foundation of our democracy,” while very considerately withholding citations or footnotes for his incendiary claim – because who has time for those?

“We have cyber capabilities too,” McCain boasts in his book. “They should be used to expose the epic scale of his regime’s corruption or to embarrass [Putin] in other ways.”

McCain, who is 81-years old and suffers from brain cancer, announced last month that he will not be seeking re-election once his current term is up, but will continue to weigh in on American politics from the sidelines (Twitter?).

“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,” he said, apparently unaware that he has been speaking freely about bombing the Middle East for the last 15 years, with zero consequences. He can speak his mind so openly about bombing faraway lands that he even sometimes sings about it.
(Amazingly, McCain’s Senate exodus will likely be mourned by liberals – for no other reason than his vitriolic opposition to Donald Trump.)
McCain’s moderate rebels
John McCain wanted to bomb Syria before other Western states started to hum to the same tune. And he’s always been the patron saint of the “moderate rebels.”
The senator repeatedly lobbied for “rebels” to be given military aid from the US, and called for cruise-missile strikes on the country’s legitimate government.

With a record like McCain’s, it’s hardly surprising that his book calls for dangerous escalation with a nuclear power. Can’t wait for the Atlantic Council’s review!

‘Hero representing best US ideals’: Politicians & public figures praise McCain’s legacy
Despite being pre-emptively ‘disinvited’ by McCain from his funeral, Donald Trump has expressed his condolences, joining a long list of US politicians praising the late John McCain’s patriotism, heroism and high morals.
“Our hearts and prayers are with you!” Trump tweeted after McCain's family announced the senator's death. Recalling John McCain's six-decade service to the nation, many US politicians called the Republican a true “patriot” and a “war hero.” Others noted the 81-year-olds "dignity" and "values" that were cherished by all Americans.

The US lost "one its most distinguished men of gallantry," former National Security Advisor Colin Powell noted. The retired four-star general and a long time friend of the Senator highlighted McCain's toughness, demonstrated when he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

America has lost today one of its most distinguished men of gallantry. Senator John McCain served our country in war and peace. He was a tough warrior and demonstrated that toughness during his years as a POW in a North Vietnamese prison. He survived torture and deprivation and came home with his honor intact. He went on to have a distinguished career as a US Congressman and then Senator from Arizona. I knew John as a colleague and friend for over 30 years. He never avoided the difficult issues and always fought for what he thought was best for our country. His courage should be an inspiration to us all. He will be greatly missed. I extend my sympathy and deepest condolences to his family. The nation has lost one of a kind.
