      Daughter and I went to Dairy Queen to celebrate. I just could not resist a banana split. Haven’t had one in years. Yep 3 scoops of ice cream. They cheat though. Banana Splits are suppose to have one dip of vanilla, one of chocolate and one of strawberry. But no, they put in 3 dips of vanilla and then poured chocolate and strawberry syrup over them. I found one strawberry when I got to the bottom. But hay, it was goooood!

        Well, Dairy Queen isn’t known for anything other than vanilla, but it’s some of the best ice cream out there. I’m surprised they didn’t put the required pineapple on it. At least they could have gotten the three toppings right!

    John McCain’s surgery and questions about his recovery are concerning to me. The surgery saved his life for sure. But, He is a patient now presenting as a severe risk of bacterial infection and other complications. I seriously doubt his recovery will be a quick one, given his age, causing me to think he will not be back in the Senate any time soon.

      Yep. At his age any surgery is risky, let alone brain surgery. And if his melanoma has spread, that doesn’t sound positive for him, either.

      The thing is, I see him as so stubborn and egotistical I can’t imagine him resigning. So instead, we have a Senate seat filled with someone who can’t do the job and the wheels of legislative action grind to a halt. That’s my worry.

      But, let’s remember that God can make this work out according to His plan. Praying for MAGA.

        Sylvia Avery, you make a good point. And people don’t realize how serious melanoma is. If it metastasizes, it is very common for it to go to the brain and cause death by brain cancer. Melanoma is one of the highest causes of cancer deaths (I think it’s #2) and most people don’t know how dangerous it is. At his age and with his body weak he’s a prime candidate for other health problems and certainly his melanoma could get a lot worse.

        I don’t wish evil, ill health or death on anyone. I know God will deal with each person and I do not want to be responsible for wishing bad on someone. However, this situation could be God’s hand using age and declining health to get McCain out of the Senate. Then the only issue is getting someone good from Arizona. It’s apparent the majority of voters there can’t pick good candidates.

          “Absent senators may vote by proxy on reporting a measure unless a committee has adopted a rule to the contrary, but such proxy votes may not affect the outcome of a vote to report a measure, and proxies may not be counted to determine a quorum.”
          Further the Senate, unlike the House doesn’t allow electronic voting.

            The guy was so sick he could not even be wheeled in a wheel chair but would not give up his seat.

            He was a Democrat suffering from Parkinson’s and held the seat for thirty years.

            His liberal son Mark was voted out of office here in Colorado and replaced by Cory Gardner ( who really needs to watch his P’s and Q’s).

        CO – Re-posting some research on this issue that I posted yesterday.

        CRS [Congressional Research Service]: Incapacity of a Member of the Senate, December 15, 2006, excerpt below.

        Abstract

        There is no specific protocol, procedure, or authority set out in the United States Constitution, federal law, or congressional rule for the Senate (or the House) to recognize “incapacity” of a sitting Member and thereby declare a “vacancy” in such office. Under the general practice in the Senate (as well as in the House), a personal “incapacity” of a sitting Member has not generated proceedings to declare the seat vacant, and sitting Members of the Senate (and the House) who have become incapacitated, and who have not resigned, have generally served out their terms of office. In one instance in the House, a Member-elect who was incapacitated and comatose, and thus could not present herself to take the oath of office (Gladys Noon Spellman, of Maryland), was found not likely to recover, and the House proceeded to declare her seat vacant after the beginning of the new Congress. However, no such precedent exists for a sitting Member of either House who has taken the oath of office, and a vacancy with respect to such a sitting Member would generally exist only by virtue of resignation, death, acceptance of an incompatible office, or expulsion.

        https://wikileaks.org/wiki/CRS:_Incapacity_of_a_Member_of_the_Senate,_December_15,_2006

        —————————–

        Here’s an excerpts from CRS: “Recalls of Legislators And the Removal Of Members of Congress From Office”.

        “Summary

        Under the United States Constitution and congressional practice, Members of Congress may have
        their services ended prior to the normal expiration of their constitutionally established terms of
        office by their resignation or death, or by action of the house of Congress in which they are a
        Member by way of an “expulsion,” or by a finding that in accepting a subsequent “incompatible”
        public office, the Member would be deemed to have vacated his congressional seat.”

        “Administrative and Judicial Decisions on State Recall Laws

        State attorneys general, as well as state judicial bodies, when considering the merits of the issue
        of a proposed recall of a Member of Congress under state provisions have consistently found that
        such recall is neither provided for, permitted by, nor is it consistent with the provisions of the U.S.
        Constitution.”

        Under this section, many states are discussed, but AZ isn’t one of them.

        “Constitutional Amendment; Pro and Con

        From U.S. Supreme Court rulings and explanations regarding terms and qualifications of
        Members of Congress, as well as from several state judicial rulings and attorneys general
        opinions, it would appear that for a recall provision to be enforceable against a Member of
        Congress a constitutional amendment authorizing such a recall procedure would need to be
        adopted by the requisite number of states. Although there have been some calls for a
        constitutional amendment authorizing national “referenda” or “initiatives,” there has not been
        significant movement for a national recall provision.”

        https://www.senate.gov/CRSpubs/ee067ba0-db71-4394-9a37-453316aeb453.pdf

        —————-

        Here is a link re: Arizona recalls. I’m not certain all this is conclusive. Nothing addresses a person being removed due to incapacitation. More research probably needed.

      He has betrayed the fundamental American values our soldiers have fought to protect.
      He turned himself from an incompetent aviator into a missionary of death and chaos.
      And with his last breath he will wish for more of the dark side to weave its misery over more of the planet.

      Like I hoped for LBJ, I hope this creature is not even buried on American soil. He disgraced it his entire adult life.

      Just my personal opinion, and I’d tell it to his face given the opportunity.
      It is long past the time when citizens rip the veil off the faces of these national frauds.
      We judge people by their actions. It’s the way our system works.
      Many of our national “leaders” are complete criminals and crooks.
      Time to Drain the Swamp by calling them out and ridding ourselves of them.

      The worst part of this entire debacle is the lack of investigation and indictments regarding the illegal actions of the DNC during their primary and general election campaign, including the in kind contributions between the MSM and the Democrats. And don’t forget the Clinton Foundation money laundering.

I think the two of them hatched this plan, make the Republicans look like they are working diligently on fixing it so that they don’t look “uncaring” and that they are trying very hard to come up with the right bill. Paul and his buddies will be the force that pushes in the right direction…O-Care continues to crash and burn, and lo-and-behold, the campaign for fall 2018 will kick off and you’ll have all kinds of anti-Obamacare, Trumpian candidates coming out of the woodwork (Kid Rock) and we won’t need to worry about the likes of Olympia Snow and rest of the RINOS.

        No, incorrect. He loves Trump.

        But I continue to question the wisdom of continuing to trash the RNC without the recognition that it is being transformed before our very eyes. Trump’s personal pick, Sarah McDaniel is now running the RNC. She miraculously delivered MICHIGAN to the President’s electoral count. The last survey I received from her was actually entitled “TRUMP AGENDA”. The questions have been completely revised, and ONLY ask question pertaining to Trump’s campaign promises. In fact one question I have NEVER, EVER seen was “Do you support ENDING government unions?” I mean, this BLEW ME AWAY in its significance for Draining The Swamp at its very core.

        I think Trump supporters ought to be open to new facts on the ground and adjust as Trump Marches Through The GOP placing his own people in key posts, transforming our country, and transforming the GOP. We cannot continue to crap on institutions as they positively transform and begin to serve AMERICANS once again. This may actually be occurring at the RNC.

          IndiaMaria, you make good points about McDaniel’s efforts in Michigan and at the RNC. She might be changing the RNC message, but it isn’t changing the behavior of elected GOPe.

          There have been countless comments here about how our own Senators & Reps barely respond to calls or emails. The Senators can’t/won’t even act as a cohesive unit to pass an alternative to Obamacare. Even with the McCain medical issue, we won’t see a stubborn Rand Paul or Murkowski step up FOR US.

          Withholding our financial support from RNC in favor of donating directly to PDJT website (or PACs of pro-Trump agenda) is our best financial leverage. I am confident he will use the 80% he nets to support candidates he needs.

          When/if our current elected officials get behind Trump’s agenda, or RNC puts forth openly pro-Trump candidates in 2018 – no splinter strategy – I might support RNC. I have been taken in by their ‘message’ too many times.

          She is doing a PHENOMENAL job and is 100% behind President Trump and his agenda.

          I would urge people to resume donations to RNC so she can get more candidates funded to challenge Dem seats.

Then the number of pleas for we “have to fight those horrible Dems” will increase as the elections of 2018 move closer. Then you’ll see the request for donations from current Congressional members saying “I’m fighting for you in Washington, so don’t let this primary guy or gal take me out.” And of course, you’ll see we’re with President Trump all the way. 🙂

            No problem. This fake news actually fooled me a bit by starting out slow, and I did not get on debunking it right away.

            It really took off with conservatives after a while, because it was well-played by the opposition.

            What they do is use several reliable fake conservative accounts, which seem like hardcore right but are not, to promote fake news at just the right speed for optimum adoption. They try to keep it below the radar of people like me, who will quickly debunk an emerging lie, but give it enough support that it’s mostly self-sustaining. They did a good job with this one.

            They’re after Ryan for some reason, and I think it’s healthcare. Trying to sabotage Trump’s healthcare goals, I think. Any way to weaken Ryan right now is good for them.

          Sarah McDaniels is Trump’s personal appointment as HEAD of the RNC. Millions of AMERICANS rightly see the RNC as an important institution for the TRUMP AMERICAN AGENDA, albeit still flawed. Many Trump supporters actually follow the President’s lead. When HE appoints the RNC head, and HE endorses the RNC, then so do we. Many of us supporters may still be suspicious of RNC’s past actions, but for Trump America to progress we must adjust to battle conditions on the ground. Take an honest look at the questionnaire’s so many are flippantly trashing, and really read them. They are vastly different compared with only months ago, in wording and in meaning.

          Leave the “throwing out the baby with the bathwater” to the ideological purists like ToxicTed and Rand Paul. Ultimately losers both. “Hate The RNC Forever and Ever” is simply shortsighted considering the DNC alternative.

Why would he do that if he didn’t care for my vote. It’s possible that his replies might vary according to what each constituent writes to him. So, I’m just letting him know that I , at least, am a “Trust but Verify” type of voter. I do the same with my senators.

          I won’t go into more specifics because I prefer my location to remain undisclosed, but I can tell you that I have evidence that my two senators are solidly behind PDJT and, to-date, my US Rep. has not antagonized PDJT.

Another point to make is that Europe has stopped having children – essentially taking themselves out of existence in a few more generations.

              Agreed we shouldn’t mock other countries, but thousands of Americans gave their lives to save Europe from Germany – only to find Germany doing Europe in anyway with help from the other European countries. This is just my opinion, so please don’t take personal offense.

                And believe me when I tell you that many French citizens know they are in trouble.

                But Europe is a very different place than the US and elections are much harder to win over there.

      Memes REALLY get under liberals’ skin and they have no comebacks. Liberals can’t meme because all they know is insults and anger. Memes have to be funny and make you think, neither of which liberals are capable of.

        I have a wise friend that points out the way to get under liberals’ skin is to MOCK them. They hate to be mocked. Reasoned arguments and logic fail because all they know is hatred, but when you say “so?” like President Trump did and does, and mock them… they have a meltdown.

        Until recently, the GOP never fought back. Too many wanted to join that country club and DC cocktail circuit, but the Trumpers are a different breed; we’re true Americans and fight back.

        President Trump and his supporters are finally co opting some of Alinksky’s tactics. Isolate, personalize, ridicule. Look what our good President is doing to CNN. So many other outlets are fake as well, but going after one and making it a laughing stock, affects them all, imho.

    As He Starts 50 State ‘Listening Tour’, It Sure Looks Like Mark Zuckerberg Is Preparing To Run For President In 2020

    Facebook’s SEC filing on the new shares specifically dictates that Mark Zuckerberg would retain control of the company even if he were “serving in a government position or office.” The moves have won Zuckerberg attention in the media, with Vanity Fair, the Atlantic and the Chicago Tribune all writing recent stories about the idea of Zuckerberg running for the White House.

      Zuckerberg is like any other leftist – he will only ‘listen’ to the leftists.

      Never listen to evidence, reason, common sense or conservatives.

      Leftists don’t care what works, what is reality and truth – they only care about their ideology and agenda.

      Zuckerberg is a censor of any thought that disagrees with him.

      I would not belong to Facebook for any amount of money. It is too aggressive, exclusive, closed-minded, vengeful and petty – all characteristics of the left.

The agency initially withheld many of the documents, but it released them to the Times this month after it appealed, agreeing that it was in the public interest to do so.”

      Mrs Butler-Cole was appointed to the role by the publicly-funded state body Cafcass which acts in the best interests of children in court cases. She IS the chairperson of Dying with Dignity.

      She was appointed by…….CAFCASS. Who are they………..

      The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) is a non-departmental public body in England.

      In November 2010 a parliamentary Commons Public Affairs Committeefound ‘Cafcass as an organisation is not fit for purpose’ and ‘do not make child based decisions.’ [32]

      In 2011, presenters to a Justice Select Committee said that Cafcass was ‘beyond reform’ and ‘should be abolished’.[33]

      A High Court judge said in 2014 that it appeared to be a practice “widespread across the country” that children were taken into foster care based on reports which family courts “cut and pasted” into their own rulings, without giving the parents the opportunity to view the reports or respond to them.[34]

      This is government at it’s worst, a bureaucracy of death. It’s as if the nazis won.

  34. With the media’s new definition of “collusion”, see how bad this looks now:

    President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”

    President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

    President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

    President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.”

    Obama asked Putin to interfere in the US election. He wanted Putin to let him ACT tough on Russia in exchange for “flexibility” after the election. Medvedev clearly indicates they will help Obama win the election.

And besides the “obvious” answer 🙂 ,how long was Ted Kennedy in chambers while his brain issues were increasing? These are just a few I remember (think I remember). I’m sure there were some in the 1800s even 1900s. Unless McCain actually flat lines (and then replaced), I doubt there is anything to do. And he probably won’t resign. Apparently, Woodrow Wilson was very incapacitated for his last couple years.

      Scalise is a HOR Congressman. There is a large majority of Republicans in HORep. His missing vote is much less likely therefore to “tip the balance” in favor of either party platform.

      The Majority party in Senate is just over 50%. Therefore if the vote is cast in Senate with a person missing, (either party) it will be construed to be illegal, because the “yeas and nays” (party numbers) are too close for a “fair vote.”

    Mentioned here for two reasons. First, I am no fanboy of Brietbart (inconsistent on our president) and know that many of you are not either. But this post is timely and might be of interest to you. Secondly, it is important to keep focus on our ideals, and not individuals. I love President Trump, as many of you do, like a family member. But it is our deep love of founding ideals of America that will carry us through.

    Incidentally, there appears to be two commenters on this site user-named “Frank.” He’s smarter than me, so I’ll let it slide. Just kind of unusual.

    • The quote to attributed “Valerie Jarrett, Stanford University, 1977” about her “seek[ing] to help change America to be a more Islamic country” is an unfounded one that has no source other than recent repetition (primarily on right-wing web sites and blogs). It’s also an anachronism, as “Valerie Jarrett” didn’t exist in 1977: she was born Valerie Bowman and didn’t take the latter surname until she married William Jarrett in 1983.

      Don’t doubt that the quote pegs her sentiments but the attribution is false.
