    'A plane flying into a mountain' - the man who advised Bush and McCain is very worried about the Republican party

    WHEN YOU'VE WORKED for some of the most high-profile American politicians of the past 50 years, you learn a thing or two about the state of US politics. So when John Weaver tells you that he's profoundly worried about what's going on under Donald Trump, you'd do well to sit up and take notice. 59-year-old Weaver cut his teeth as a political strategist for George Bush Sr during his time in the White House (1989-1993) and subsequent loss to Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential election. More recently he's served as adviser to Republican party royalty John McCain (twice, for presidential campaigns in 2000 and 2008) and Ohio governor John Kasich (his current gig – Kasich ran unsuccessfully in the

    Meghan McCain slams Putin summit: Trump “acted like a pathetic puppy who was completely neutered”

    President Donald Trump's controversial summit with Vladimir Putin, in which he stood by the Russian tyrant over the U.S. intelligence community, has been met with such swift and widespread backlash that Trump's even lost the support of the lone conservative voice on "The View." Declaring that "it's a really scary day to be an American," Meghan McCain's reaction was so intense that she declared it a moment to "screw party lines." The former Fox News contributor did not stop there in her devastating review of Trump's made-for-TV press conference in Helsinki, Finland. "What happened yesterday is extremely dangerous, it's un-American, it's unpatriotic," she said. "Our president acted like a pathetic

    Rep. Gosar summons his Dental-ESP to rip McCain, Flake and McSally, and to back Ward

    Opinion: The congressman again uses his clairvoyance, this time to trash fellow Republicans. Rep. Paul Gosar once again tapped into his Dental-ESP (a self-proclaimed ability to read people, owing to his ability to perform root canals), this time in order to attack Republican Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, along with Republican senatorial candidate Rep. Martha McSally. All in order to support the “Chemtrail” Kelli Ward for the senate. Gosar issued a statement reading in part, “We cannot afford another establishment patsy who promises one thing and votes differently. Arizona has suffered for years with a lackluster senate delegation that promised one thing during the election and did another

    Trump-Putin meeting: Bipartisan outrage as 'disgraceful' US president sides with Russian leader over election meddling

    Donald Trump went into his Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin looking to change the relationship between Moscow and Washington. Mr Trump said that Mr Putin had issued a “strong, impressive denial” and he saw "no reason" why Russia should be involved. The president appeared aware it would not sit well - having been asked directly at a press conference to warn Mr Putin against interfering in US elections - but said he would risk anything to go his own way.
