    If Chuck Grassley or Orrin Hatch passed away while a member of Congress will they get the same groundhog day funeral as McCain ? I feel like we are being punked with this. Both sides are way overboard with the praise who we know is not a hero but a traitor who has offered nothing that was good for America, Americas people, and especially nothing for AZ.

        The reason this is happening is because he hated PT, and the media is using that and all of this pomp and circumstance to irritate the President.

          They STILL don’t understand DJT, and have not deined to read his books.

          He DORS NOT allow emotions, to color his judgements or actions.

          So, irritating him does them NO GOOD.

          He is the epitome of “Don’t get mad, get even”.

          And, as he told Bloomberg just today, he is a VERY PATIENT MAN.


          But they still think they can gode him, make him mad, ‘trigger’ him, evoke an emotional responce that will then cause him to react.

          It AIN’T gonna happen!

          So, let them play their games of self delusion

          But only in America can an ex president known for getting BJs from a 20 something intern in the Whitehouse Oval Office during the time of a government shutdown get caught on tape ooogling a 20 something singer at a funeral for famous singer who was given 3 or 4 dress changes during her funeral week can scoop the headline from a veteran with a nickname of songbird because he sang like a canary when he was held in captivity 😂😂😂
          Phew, er that was a mouthful! 🤣

      I just watched the rerun of PBS’s Frontline on John McCain (tuned in by mistake, but thought I’d see what a liberal producer had to say). My conclusion: If it hadn’t been for Cindy Hensley’s money and Sarah Palin’s saavy campaigning during his lousy run for the presidency, the U.S. would have forgotten about him. He was never a Conservative; he was a narcissistic drug and arms runner for terrorists who would do anything to try to ruin those who defied him. Example: PDJT’s attempt to shut down Obamacare, which was and still is making healthcare far too expensive for most Americans. McCain? “Oh, I’ll go Socialist and vote to retain it. Gotcha, Trump!”

      If PDJT hadn’t run for and captured the presidency, the big circus around McCain’s death never would have happened. Just as McCain, the UniParty is trying to stick it to our President while they can as they know, know, know they are going to be exposed for a seditious cadre of fools running the U.S. into the ground while they expand their wealth and dreams of power in a Brave New World.

        I think one of the things that started the animus, was no-name had spent years cultivating the (phoney) maverick ‘persona’.

        It was a useful cover, for his tendency to vote with dems. And, it have him his OWN image, as he moved away from being a ‘Reagan republican.
        DJT manifested as a TRUE ‘maverick’, and no-name was threatened.

        Hence, HE started the spat, and DJT counterpunched.

        Coarse, he was also in this cabal of corruption, up to his eyeballs, and was as threatened by DJT as hildebeast.

        But the maverick stuff made it PERSONAL.

      Who died? /s


    • They prolly cut a deal with McCain when he was willing to let the election fall to Obama and throw Palin under the bus. “We will give you Presidential Honors when you die; you took one for the Team”…..and all that other political BS.
      No one really loved John McCain; in reality, maybe 2 or 3 but that’s it.

    Yes DM keep pushing that ‘hero’ and oh look they of course had to use Aretha Franklin’s funeral (it was eight-hours long?!?!) to push anti Trump stuff. Oh Stevie Wonder….

    ‘Al Sharpton takes swipe at Trump: Aretha ‘used to perform for you, she worked for us’ and then reads letter from Obama in tribute to the Queen of Soul’

    AND yet O was no where about….

    Truth be told stuff like this makes me laugh. They hate so much that instead of showing respect they show/push hate…

      The idea of the secure pension was supposed to make up for the not-so-great pay, I thought.
      Maybe federal workers are overdue for a raise; I don’t know. But if so, whose fault is that?
      The guy who just got in office, or the guy who was there for eight years beforehand?


    • phoenixRising says:

      Well, the hope is some of them will be upset enough to quit.
      There’s far too many of them.


    • Rhoda R says:

      On that pension thing – CSRS (Civil Service Retirement System) was phased out about 20-25 years ago to be replaced by FERS (Federal Employees Retirement System). Under CSRS, employees paid into the system at a higher rate the social security rates and are NOT eligible for social security – even if they worked in the private sector for more than the 40 quarters. Under FERS, employees pay into social security and have the option of one of three (last time I checked) 401K plans. Government 401K matching was similar to that in private industry. The vast majority of current civil service workers are funding their own retirement.

      I clicked on the link Andy…
      Haven’t watched TV News in 15 years…
      shocked to hear anchors interviewing advocates for illegals and their “rights”
      shocked to hear an illegal expressing concern for ‘his children’ when he is taken off in handcuffs…
      He know he is here illegally… everyday he knows he could get picked up… it is irresponsible for his children being at risk.
      It is insane !!!!!
      Send all illegals back across the border.

    Hello Treepers! It has been awhile since I posted anything. I still love you guys! As the longterm Treepers know I can be a bit acerbic, but I have a true MAGA heart.

    I have been blocked on Twitter by Ginger McQueen and Bill Mitchell and New York City Guns.

    Sad that.
