How John McCain’s No Vote To Repeal & Replace Obamacare Helped Dems Win House In 2018

For years Republicans (including John McCain) raised a lot of cash on their promise to get rid of Obamacare. Then, when Donald Trump shocked the political world and won the White House, they were in a position to actually keep that promise to voters. Instead, then-Senator McCain (along with Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski) voted no on repeal and yes on keeping Obamacare fully intact. One outgoing member of Congress now thinks that is when Republicans’ hopes for keeping the House in 2018 were doomed to fail and that McCain’s no vote had nothing to do with doing what was right for Arizona voters but rather was meant to feed McCain’s desire to rebuke President Trump.

Via Politico:

An outgoing Republican lawmaker on Sunday blamed former Sen. John McCain for the GOP’s loss of the House majority in last week’s elections, writing in The Wall Street Journal that it was McCain’s decisive vote against legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare that led to a wave of Democratic midterm victories.

Jason Lewis, a Minnesota congressman who was unseated last Tuesday by Democrat Angie Craig, claimed in his op-ed that McCain’s thumbs-down vote against a so-called skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act “prompted a ‘green wave’ of liberal special-interest money” that he said allowed Democrats to hammer Republicans on the issue of pre-existing conditions.

Lewis wrote in his op-ed that the failed Senate vote allowed Democrats to campaign against Republicans with the claim that the GOP wanted to remove protections for those with pre-existing conditions, a keystone of many Democratic campaigns leading up to the midterms.

The freshman congressman argued that the House bill would have “[alleviated] the pre-existing condition problem,” rather than getting rid of the protections altogether as he accused Democrats of falsely claiming. PolitFact has rated claims that the House bill wouldn’t eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions as “mostly false.”

Although McCain was one of three GOP lawmakers to vote against the “skinny” repeal, Lewis singled out McCain for his “no” vote — which came after he criticized Republicans for trying to push a repeal bill through and called for the return of regular order — as an unnecessary attempt to slight President Donald Trump.

“The late Arizona senator’s grievance with all things Trump was well known, but this obsession on the part of ‘Never Trump’ Republicans has to end,” Lewis wrote. “Disapprove of the president’s style if you like, but don’t sacrifice sound policy to pettiness.”

—————

The above sentiment by Congressman Jason Lewis is true. John McCain was very much a willing part of the “we (Republicans) are willing to lose 2018 if it means hurting Trump” sentiment. Well, they got what they wanted. Democrats took the House, (while still attempting to steal the Senate) and President Trump’s America First agenda is now facing even greater political opposition from the globalist, America Last, D.C. Swamp. John McCain is gone but the political corruption he helped expand from one coast of America to the other, very much remains.


 

A Warm-Up For 2020: Arizona’s Maricopa County Just Stole The Senate Election

Joe Arpaio was Maricopa County Sheriff for twenty-four years, serving from 1993 until 2017. He was likely one of the most conservative sheriffs in the entire country, particularly when it came to illegal immigration. Maricopa County itself has long been a right-leaning county, even despite Pheonix being inside its borders. In 2016 it voted for Donald Trump by nearly 5% over Hillary Clinton. And yet, just two years later, we are to believe this very same longtime conservative county helped to defeat a former female fighter pilot for the Senate in favor of a far-left anti-war activist who once said American should ‘join the Taliban’ after the 911 tragedy? It’s inconceivable. Yet that’s exactly what Maricopa election officials would have us believe.

Look at the above picture. REALLY look at it.

Then check out the below facts regarding how Maricopa County has voted in the past:

2016: Donald Trump wins Maricopa County 49.1% to 45.7% to Hillary Clinton. 

2012: Mitt Romney wins Maricopa County by DOUBLE DIGITS over Barack Obama. Sheriff Joe Arpaio won re-election as sheriff by a comfortable margin as well.

Something happens in 2016 that might explain how Maricopa suddenly went from a right-leaning county in 2016 to a seemingly left-leaning county in 2018. This man was elected to be put in charge of all Maricopa County elections:

Image result for Adrian Fontes

His name is Adrion Fontes. He is a far left former Bernie Sanders supporter who claimed prior to his own election victory in 2016 to usher in a new era where ‘all votes would be counted.’

Indeed.

During the 2018 primary elections, voting abnormalities were rampant throughout Maricopa County. Ballot security was cited as one of the major issues. Initially, Fontes promised he would share a post-midterm election report with the public. After county attornies urged him not to, he reneged on that promise and the report never saw the light of day but his job overseeing the November 2018 Midterms remained intact as Fontes declared more people were voting than ever in Maricopa County.

Uh-huh.

Consider this, Republican Governor Doug Ducey was re-elected this November by a margin of 1,218,765 votes vs 892,435 for his Democrat opponent. That’s a total of 2,111,200 votes.

In the other statewide election, the Arizona senate race, 2,162,522 votes were cast, meaning more people voted in the senate race than the governor’s race.

That’s highly unusual.

Now consider this – approximately HALF the total Arizona vote count is coming from Maricopa County. Wait, it gets better.

Did you know that more people voted for the 2018 Senate race in Maricopa County than voted for the 2016 presidential race? About 100,000 more.

Historically, off-year elections have a lower turnout, not a dramatic increase and yet we are now supposed to believe that in Maricopa County far more people voted in 2018 than 2016 and not only that, but more people voted for the senate race than the Arizona governor’s race.

WHAT?

Why would that be?

Perhaps the answer is this: governors can’t impeach a president – but senators can. 

Is it so far to suggest a far-left Democrat like Adrion Fontes would be part of a plan to put in place an equally far-left senator who would be more than happy to jump on the anti-Trump bandwagon as a member of the U.S. Senate? And if Maricopa County already accounts for half of Arizona’s vote total, is it beyond the realm of possibility that 100,000 more votes could suddenly be manufactured via illegal voter counts?

No, it wouldn’t. In fact, it would a very-very easy thing to do given how little oversight there is to our elections. How many times have districts tabulated more votes than actual registered voters? Answer – a lot. Places like Detroit, Philadelphia, Austin, Broward County, it happens all the time but those results are quickly certified and the world moves on.

What happened last week in Maricopa County is more than the usual baked-in voter fraud, though. 100,000 ‘new’ votes suddenly appearing during an off-year election that also happens to overwhelmingly favor the Democrat candidate?

Yeah.

And guess what? Maricopa County is likely a test run for 2020. The Establishment has no intention of allowing President Trump a second term.

100,000 ‘new’ votes in Maricopa County will suddenly be 10,000,000 million ‘new’ votes all across America and that, as they say, will be that.

You don’t actually think those caravans massing at our southern border are here out of love for the United States do you?

Let them in and let them vote. That’s now one of the foundational tenets of the Democrat Party platform.

Depressed yet?

You should be.


 

REPORT: Dems Push Panic Button As Republican Midterm Election Enthusiasm Surges

Republicans dominated early voting. Then, Democrats saw their side mobilizing for a final days push they were confident would give them the House. Now, Democrats are panicking as the mobilization on their side is being countered by suddenly resurgent and enthusiastic Republican voters determined to protect and promote President Donald Trump.

Image result for trump rally

It was never supposed to be this close. Historically the party that controls the White House loses and often loses big during the Midterm cycle.

Not this time. The Senate looks increasingly secure for Republicans while the House, which was leaning heavily toward a Democrat takeover just a few weeks earlier, is now a dead heat between the two political parties and that has the Democrat leadership increasingly concerned as outlined in this Townhall report:

Whoa: GOP Actually Leads in National Early Voting — Plus, Dems Suddenly Worried About Joe Manchin?

More than 24 million early votes had been cast across the country as of yesterday, nearly doubling the total tally at this point in the 2014 cycle.

——————-

If Democrats are having to pump hundreds of thousands of dollars into campaigns like Joe Manchin at the 11th hour that is a clear sign their internal polling data is picking up on a shift in the electorate that is favoring Republicans. Internal polls have always been the true gauge of a campaign’s success. As for the media-driven polls, they are inaccurate at best and too often outright fabrications intended to shape, not gauge actual public opinion. (See Hillary Clinton: 2016)

President Trump continues to barnstorm the country at a pace that would exhaust most politicians half his age and the message he keeps repeating to the tens of thousands turning out to see him is GET OUT AND VOTE.

It seems those crowds are listening to their president and doing just that. The question now is if it will be enough to defeat the Democrat/Media machine that is as determined as ever to halt President Trump’s incredibly successful America First agenda.


 

Did The Deep State Work Hand In Hand With Christine Blasey Ford? It Sure Looks That Way…

Lots of evidence of Deep State shenanigans now coming out in the wake of the Judge Kavanaugh hearings that shed some serious light on those behind the entire sordid smear campaign that was nothing more than an attempt to halt President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee and subsequently destroy the life of a good man. It now appears that Christine Ford repeatedly perjured herself while giving false testimony to the Senate – and did so at the direction of operatives with direct ties to Deep State government agencies.

Appalling.  


 

BREAKING: Senator Jeff Flake States “We Can’t Have That (Kavanaugh?) On The Court.”

Oh my. It appears the progressive hooks are now deeply embedded in the future of outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. After being questioned on Tuesday about his thoughts on the Kavanaugh nomination, Senator Flake said this:

“We can’t have that on the Court.”

Via THE ATLANTIC:

Updated on October 2 at 12:32 p.m. ET

As the Senate awaits the results of the FBI investigation into the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Jeff Flake, one of the lawmakers who spurred the inquiry, criticized the judge Tuesday for his recent appearance in the upper chamber.

Speaking with Jeffrey Rosen, the president of the Constitution Center, and Democratic Senator Chris Coons at The Atlantic Festival on Tuesday morning, Flake called the judge’s interactions with lawmakers “sharp and partisan.”

“We can’t have that on the Court,” said the Arizona senator, who didn’t elaborate on which interactions he was referring to.

Flake’s “gentleman’s agreement” with Coons, from Delaware, led to the FBI reopening its investigation into Kavanaugh late last week. The bureau is examining the sexual-assault allegations of Christine Blasey Ford, who also testified on Thursday.

—————-

Earlier this week Flake attended a George Soros funded progressive rally in which the senator joked onstage about the staged confrontation in a Senate elevator that he used as an excuse to then ask for a supplemental FBI investigation into the baseless allegations made against Judge Kavanaugh – allegations legal experts have repeatedly asserted would never be taken on by any competent prosecutor.

Rumors are now swirling that Senator Flake has already been promised a “good boy” package by Soros operatives that will comfortably feather his post-Senate nest in the coming years.

In Washington D.C. it appears no bad deed goes unrewarded…


 

ALERT: Judge Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Said To Be Going Down Under Weight Of Deep State Manipulations

Outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake gave Democrats what they wanted most—more time.

-More time to fundraise off of the anti-Kavanaugh nomination movement.

-More time to dig up/make up further allegations against Kavanaugh.

-More time to threaten/harass/intimidate any members of the Senate who are thinking of supporting Kavanaugh. 

-More time to collaborate with CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc…

Rumors are at this very moment swirling via congressional staffers that Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation is in great peril as a handful of Republicans are backing away from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s desire to hold a vote sooner rather than later. In short, these rumors are confirming what many have feared for days—that the Deep State fix is in.

The Trump White House is engaged in a flurry of communications with Mitch McConnell’s office. What, if anything, can be done to stop the Deep State’s most recent and considerable push back against Kavanaugh’s confirmation remains to be seen but speculation is turning increasingly negative at this time.


 

Deep State Moves In Hard To Block Kavanaugh Nomination: “They Got To Him.”

Via Senator Jeff Flake’s squishy request to “pause” the Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmation vote in order to allow for yet another FBI investigation, the Deep State is now poised to unleash a flurry of anti-Kavanaugh stories (and direct threats to a group of Republican senators) through their multitude of media operatives.

Hold on tight. If you thought it was crazy before, the next 72-96 hours are going to be brutal as the Deep State no doubt is counting on enough Republicans to buckle under the immense pressure that is about to be applied to them.

Senator Kamala Harris (left), who is a direct link to the Obama-Valerie Jarrett D.C. power circle, led the charge to intimidate outgoing Arizona senator Jeff Flake (right) into pushing for an FBI investigation. Flake, who has been an outspoken Republican enemy of the Trump White House, obeyed the demands of Harris and other leading Democrats, an act which led to fellow Republican senator Lindsey Graham to reportedly tell staff as he was walking out, “They got to him. They got to him.”

The committee chair, Senator Chuck Grassley, was even more visibly upset as he made his way to a closed-door meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “These people won’t stop this nonsense. They’re all nuts.”

Democrats, on the other hand, were openly elated by Flake’s move, knowing full well the media-generated anti-Kavanaugh barrage that is about to be unleashed.

And So It Begins: Three Republican Senators Side With Democrats To Delay Kavanaugh Supreme Court Vote

Yesterday D.C. Whispers warned its readers the bogus allegations against Trump Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, would be front and center this week as Democrats hoped to intimidate enough Republican senators that Kavanaugh’s appointment might be delayed and possibly derailed entirely.

That attempt is now happening and proving successful as Republican senators Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins, all indicated they were open to delaying the Kavanaugh vote. To add fuel to the fire, the ever-manipulative Senator Chuck Schumer called for an FBI investigation into the allegations – allegations that Kavanagh rubbed up against someone when he was a teenager.

(ABOVE: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling for an FBI investigation into alleged teenage dry-humping)

Let that sink in. That is how utterly ridiculous the federal government has become under the lunacy of liberal politicians. A woman shares a nearly 40-year old allegation with the Washington Post about being at a teenage party where drinking was involved and falling onto a bed with a 17-year old Brett Kavanaugh and then falling off that same bed when a third teenager jumped on laughing. (That third teenager vehemently denies the story now being put forth by the woman.)  She doesn’t recall details of exactly when this happened, gives no indication any real assault took place but says it frightened her and that the experience later impeded her relationships with men – at least that’s what she is said to have told her therapist.

Oh, and she is a longtime supporter of the Democrat Party and Bernie Sanders.

So, as senators deliberate the impending appointment of a man to the United States Supreme Court, a forty-year-old allegation of teenage dry humping is considered serious enough to delay the vote and call for an FBI investigation?

This is madness.

It’s also why Donald Trump won in 2016.

Tens of millions of Americans are sick and tired of being sick and tired of such nonsense.


 

BREAKING: Never-Trump Senator John McCain Replaced By Pro-Trump Jon Kyl

John McCain detested Donald Trump so much so that he willfully participated in assisting the Hillary Clinton campaign with what became the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. The longtime Arizona senator was said to be increasingly bitter over the likelihood he would not live to see the destruction of the Trump presidency. That bitterness would likely be worsened if McCain knew his replacement was former longtime Arizona senator, Jon Kyl—a man now firmly on the side of President Trump.

Kyl was not an immediate passenger on the 2016 Trump Train but his criticisms of the then-insurgent Trump campaign were muted and based primarily on Trump’s bellicose campaigning style. As Trump’s presidential successes grew so too did Mr. Kyl’s respect for the job the president was doing despite significant political and media-driven opposition. (He once admonished the anti-Trump media and told them to cut Trump some slack.) This respect recently culminated in Kyl’s willingness to assist in the now-ongoing (and critically important) Supreme Court appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Where John McCain’s ego and sense of self-importance and entitlement were so often front and center, Kyl’s leadership is both more subdued, stronger, and ultimately more successful than McCain’s long but dubious record of actual legislative achievement.

Make no mistake, replacing McCain with Kyl in the U.S. Senate is a big win for the Trump White House.


 

YOU MADE HIM DO IT: Mitch McConnell Cancels Senate Vacation In Order To Push Trump Agenda

The liberal media is buzzing madly this last hour following Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s surprise announcement he will be canceling the upcoming August recess in order to allow the Senate to push for passage of more of President Trump’s America First agenda. 

And guess who forced him to do so? YOU DID. That’s right, if you are among the millions of Donald Trump supporters out there it’s you who now has the Republican leadership bending the knee and acknowledging you hold the keys to the party’s future.

The Republican Party is Trump’s party. That is an undeniable fact now and while Establishment Republicans hate that thought – they cannot deny its truth.

If they are to hold on to the Senate and the House they must appear to be fighting with the president and not against him. That is the reason for McConnell’s move to cancel the August recess. Yes, it’s largely a publicity stunt more than a substantive move to more fully embrace the Trump agenda, but nevertheless, it signals the power of Trump and those who support him.

It also means the seats of power are subtly shifting as well. The Freedom Caucus is more powerful than ever while McConnell-like Republicans have seen their control over the party lessening.

Now if only that canceled August recess could be used to bring an end to the ridiculous and phony Mueller investigation – the one McConnell quietly pushed for not so long ago…


 

Senate Intelligence Committee Member Regarding #ReleaseTheMemo: “For Sake Of National Security This Must Never See The Light Of Day”

A senator who was described by sources as a member of the powerful Senate Intelligence Committee is said to have implored their fellow SIC members earlier this week that the now-infamous memo said to outline rampant surveillance abuses by the FBI against private citizens, including but not limited to, attempts to subvert the 2016 Election in favor of Hillary Clinton, must, in the interest of national security, “…never see the light of day.”

It should also be noted that this senator is said to be “very close” to the Obama Machine.

Perhaps the above statement was the motivation for this now-breaking headline via CNN:

Source: Trump inclined to allow Nunes memo to be released

The Trump vs Deep State War rages on.

DEVELOPING…

————————————-

BEWARE ROMNEY & TRUMP IMPEACHMENT ATTEMPTS…

Two Democrats were just sworn in to the Senate this week: Doug Jones of Alabama and Tina Smith of Minnesota.

One man waits in the wings to do the same – former GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.

The Trump White House is likely watching the Senate developments very closely as they could prove pivotal to ongoing attempts to destroy the Trump presidency.

Smith is simply a side move for Democrats, but Jones is a big gain. He is the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in a generation. It is believed both Smith and Jones support the “Impeach Trump” movement that continues to fester throughout Congress.

Which brings us to Mr. Romney. The animosity between Romney and Trump is well documented. On Romney’s side some have suggested it borders on outright contempt toward Donald Trump. If Mitt Romney were to become a member of the Senate, he too would likely represent a yes vote on Trump impeachment.

Far-fetched you say? Such a vote would never get past Republicans in the House, you say?

Who is the current Speaker of the House? Paul Ryan. Yes, the same Paul Ryan who also shares a deep dislike for the President and who also remains very close to a certain former running mate:

And don’t forget the shock to the political system to see a Democrat recently win in Alabama. Should anyone be so confident to assume Republicans will keep the House after 2018? At the very least the Republican majority will be slashed as more and more anti-Trump voices are added to Congress.

Please don’t doubt for a second the “Destroy Trump” wheels are no longer in motion. The anti-Trump forces don’t actually need to impeach the President, they merely need to make it appear the vast majority of the country demands impeachment – a move which will be weaponized both during the 2018 Midterms and the 2020 Election.

POTUS Trump’s time in the White House remains a very precarious thing. No other U.S. president of the modern era has come close to risking so much to help so many while facing such frighteningly powerful opposition.
