In an official White House statement we now know President Donald Trump on Friday made a call the wife of Republican Arizona Senator John McCain, Cindy McCain, after getting news that he had been hospitalized this week as he battles one of the deadliest forms of cancers known to man.
McCain who is 81 years old was diagnosed with a highly lethal form of brain cancer in July and on Wednesday his office said he had been admitted to the hospital with complications.
The statement read that Senator McCain was currently receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for what is considered normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy. But that he remains in high spirits and eternally grateful to his physicians for their excellent care they have provided for him since his treatment has begun. In the statement, he also thanked his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes and states that the senator looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible.
McCain’s Republican colleagues expressed high optimism that he will be able to make the vote on the tax overhaul next week since senators must be physically present on the Senate floor to cast votes. Considering this time he will vote with the GOP lets all hope and pray this is true.
President Trump: U.S. Economy to ‘Rock’ as GOP Races to Tax Vote
GOP lawmakers posted their sweeping, 503-page bill — with permanent tax cut for U.S. corporations and temporary benefits for individuals — on Friday evening after gaining key votes from two Republican senators who’d threatened to oppose it. Now, with votes planned in the House and Senate by the middle of next week, Trump is closing in on his first major legislative victory.
The bill — hammered out behind closed doors by Republican leaders — would slash the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, the lowest that rate has been since 1939. It would provide across-the-board tax cuts for most individuals, but then wipe them off the books by 2026. Whether to extend them would be up to a future Congress.
Trump’s White House applauded Friday’s developments, which Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called a major step toward achieving the president’s promises of faster economic growth and “much needed financial relief to all Americans.”
“It’ll be fantastic for the middle-income people and for jobs, most of all,” Trump said on Saturday at the White House before boarding Marine One for Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland. He predicted U.S. economic growth “could go to 4, 5 or even 6 percent, ultimately.”
“We are really going to start to rock,” Trump told reporters.
House leaders plan to hold their vote Tuesday. Timing for the Senate vote was less clear, though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the chamber would “get this bill done” next week.
Everything You Need to Know About the GOP Tax-Overhaul Plan
Trump and congressional Republicans have repeatedly pitched the tax measure as a boon for the middle class, despite independent analyses of earlier versions that said most of the benefit would go to higher earners. The final bill would provide a larger tax cut for the highest earners by shaving the top individual tax rate to 37 percent from 39.6 percent, a lower level than was proposed in either the House or Senate versions.
“This April 15 filing season — that is the last time you will file under this monstrous, broken tax code,” House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady said Friday evening. Brady kicked off a remarkably rapid law-making effort on Nov. 2, when he released an initial bill. The final version reflects significant changes — many of them aimed at shoring up GOP votes.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who had announced his opposition to an earlier version of the legislation, switched to “yes” after tax writers changed the bill to broaden the child tax credit’s benefits for working families. Rubio said in a Twitter message that the change “is a solid step toward broader reforms which are both pro-growth and pro-worker.”
Senator Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who hasn’t committed to supporting the final legislation, issued a news release saying she’d secured “major wins” in it, including provisions that would temporarily broaden an individual deduction for medical expenses and broaden the types of state and local taxes that can be deducted below a $10,000 cap.
Collins also seeks approval of separate legislation that would shore up individual health insurance markets — where experts say premiums could rise because the tax bill would repeal the Obamacare individual mandate. The Congressional Budget Office has previously estimated that the change would lead to as many as 13 million fewer Americans having health coverage over a decade.
But the most surprising announcement came from Bob Corker of Tennessee — the only Republican senator who voted against an earlier Senate version of the legislation — when he said that he’d reversed course and would vote “yes.”
Corker’s concern — that the legislation would increase federal deficits — was not addressed in the GOP’s final product. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office estimated on Friday that the legislation would increase deficits by $1.455 trillion over 10 years, an amount that’s slightly higher than the projection for the version Corker opposed earlier this month.
‘Disappointing’ on Deficit
“This is a bad day to be a deficit hawk,” said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense. “While Senator Corker’s decision is disappointing, the entire Republican conference should be against this deficit-financed tax cut,” Ellis said.
McConnell himself had cited deficit concerns earlier this year in discussing tax legislation. “It will have to be revenue-neutral,” he said in an interview with Bloomberg News. “We have a $21 trillion debt.”
By changing his position, Corker, who’s exchanged bitter remarks with Trump over the president’s personal style, cleared the way for the president’s first real policy victory on Capitol Hill.
Whether it will constitute a political victory remains to be seen. Public opinion polls have shown that earlier versions of the bill were unpopular, but Trump administration officials and GOP leaders predict the tax cuts, once finalized, will gain favor in 2018, ahead of congressional elections.
Democrats — all of whom voted against earlier versions of the legislation in both chambers — have decried the rapid, largely secretive process that produced the bill.
“This monstrosity is a bill that only Donald Trump and Republicans, who have accomplished next to nothing in this Congress, could love,” said Representative Lloyd Doggett, a Texas Democrat who serves on the tax-writing Ways and Means panel. “It will not grow our economy, it only burdens us with an immense amount of debt.”
On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen offered only a lukewarm endorsement of the legislation’s effect on the national economy. “It’s not a gigantic increase in growth,” Yellen said during a news conference.
I am very aware most people on the right don’t agree nor hold Senator McCain in very high regards, in fact, neither do I. But he is still a human being that’s suffering and he deserves our prayers and well wishes at a time that’s so tragic for him and his family. Let’s also hope and pray there comes a day we will never have to see another soul lost to Cancer and its ravishing treatment.
Please share in support of Senator John McCain….

HUGE BREAKING NEWS!!! MASSIVE RAID Just NOW!!! They IGNORED Him!!
HELL YEAH! GO TRUMP!! NOT ON OUR WATCH!!!
Time is up! The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is finalizing plans to raid California and detain at least 1,500 illegal immigrants who broke into the country. The idea is to begin the raid in San Francisco and travel to numerous other cities, which I will not mention. The expected number of arrests reached upwards of 1,500. President Donald Trump warned mayors and governors about being a sanctuary city or state, and now Trump is allowing ICE to do their job. ICE has not announced the date of the raid, nor should it be published, as that would provide illegal immigrants to flock to other states in hopes to seek refuge from the consequences of breaking into a country.
President Trump has warned local leaders numerous times about being host to illegal immigrants, especially criminals. Those who oppose will criticize Trump for allowing ICE to do their job, but those in disagreement should remember that former President Obama had deported more than 2.5 million illegal immigrants. Obama’s nickname was “deporter in chief.” President Trump is not close to attaining a nickname until he meets or beats Obama’s deportation numbers, and Trump has a very long way to go until that’s a possibility.
The sweeping raid starting in California will target the illegal aliens. However, it’s the criminals who are most likely the most sought after. In particular, the ICE agents will be delighted to arrest violent illegal immigrants. The violent offenders who are illegal aliens may pose a threat to ICE agents, and there could be a battle to detain the suspects. There could be an all-out war, shootout, or gang fight as ICE runs through the ruined land of California. Detaining and deporting the proven illegal immigrants who are violent is essential because it returns California to a safer haven for legal residents. Unfortunately, some residents in California believe in the sanctuary city/state concept, but they won’t be supporters for long if their child was a rape or murder victim at the hands of an illegal immigrant with a violent tendency.
The Federalist Papers Project shared more on the raid:
“Trump and the Justice Department have bristled at the fact that state and local sanctuary laws around the country are not only unconstitutional but they interfere with the goal of cracking down on illegal immigration.
The operation, sources say, will target people who have been previously identified for deportation – including those who have been served with final deportation orders and those who are criminal illegal aliens.
That 1,500 is a low target and this number could rise as they come across other immigrants – called “collateral arrests.”
This would be the first large-scale targeting of illegal immigrants in California since Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation enacting a statewide “sanctuary state” law.
Acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Hogan said that California “Better hold on tight.” He said the federal government will not permit California to be “a sanctuary state for illegal aliens,” and would have no choice but to “conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community.”
California Senator Dianne Feinstein was not happy when she learned about the ICE raid. She believes immigrants may be targeted in the raids only because they live in California and Trump may be attempting to make a point about his sanctuary city warnings. Feinstein also noted that “the administration is carrying out its enforcement actions to make a political point and not based on the security of the country.” Feinstein is incorrect. The point of a massive scale ICE raid is to gather criminals and deport them if necessary. Some of the offenders might have a violent history and removing them instantly makes any city a little bit safer than it was the day before. Due to America’s weak prison system that doesn’t do much to reform criminals into productive citizens, the offenders who were violent before may often repeat their previous actions. How many times do people get out of prison and go right back in?
If the criminal is an illegal immigrant, then they should be deported to their homeland.
The Federalist Papers Project mentioned that immigration officers would be called in from other parts of the country. The extra manpower will be useful if a gunfight or violence breaks out during a round-up of illegals.
Critics will have very harsh words for President Trump and him allowing ICE to do their job, but critics can be silenced by reminding them that Obama deported over 2.5 million from America. That number is more prominent than many major American cities. Imagine waking up, and your entire city is empty. It’s like Will Smith in “I Am Legend,” and you’re the only person left. I suppose the violent creatures hiding in run-down buildings could be the remaining violent illegal immigrants who hid from ICE. That’s how many people Obama deported, and Trump is nowhere close to that number.
The concept of a sanctuary city would be acceptable if it refused to protect violent criminals. If an illegal alien was caught doing a victimless crime, like jaywalking or something silly, then their punishment could be discussed. Someone like that could be placed on probation and in the path to citizenship. Their probation would include a stipulation where one violation is instant deportation. The violent illegal immigrants would be immediately deported. Then again, would it be worth taxpayer money to keep them in jail, THEN deport them? Some violent criminals who get deported may not ever face punishment in their homeland. They might return to America, illegally, sooner than we know.
The sanctuary city concept needs to be eliminated. If it’s not removed, then it needs should be reworked so that violent offenders are not protected. We cannot protect drug dealers, murders, and rapists any longer. Sanctuary cities protect the wrong people and leave the American citizens at risk.

Obama’s Private Jet Grounded After Where He Was Caught Trying To Sneak Into
Now that we have your attention with a wonderful Obama conspiracy of him “sneaking into America through Alaska”, here’s what’s really happening.
Former President Obama was on a recent trip to Asia and flew home. Flying home, to America, from Asia, usually requires people to land somewhere on America’s west coast. This is totally normal. Obama landed in Alaska, presumably on a private flight, wearing a polo shirt and some pants – totally the outfit you were when you’re sneaking into a country. Then Obama took selfies with a baby and it went viral. Literally, everyone on the Internet probably saw the picture and knew that Obama was in Alaska because that’s exactly what people do when they sneak into the country, right?
So let’s just squash that rumor while we’re ahead. Obama was not sneaking into the country. Since when is it considered “sneaking into America” when someone is a citizen here? That’s called “going home” if you have half of a brain and at least a quarter of that half works. That’s right, all it takes is 1/8th of a working brain to know the conspiracy theorists on this one are idiots. Going home is not sneaking in. If Obama wanted to sneak anywhere, he could probably do it. Let’s not be liberally stupid, change our genders, and think this is a sneak in. Mexicans sneak in because they don’t live here. Obama flew in, went viral, and is flying home.
Now that’s not the truly big deal. The real story here, which many outlets are ignoring, and which many conspiracy theorists hit the nail in the head on, is this – Obama is meeting with Eric Holder and Nancy Pelosi to headline a fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC). People think the meeting will try to figure out ways that they can realign the political districts in hopes to benefit the Democratic party so they can take back any districts they lost to Republicans. That’s actually pretty normal. I’m quite certain that redistricting will be a goal anytime you lose your districts to the opposite team. That’s not even the real shimmery part of this shiny tin hat story.
The real juice of the beef is that this meeting might extend beyond the talks of redistricting. This might really be the beginning of defeating Republicans in 2020. We don’t know if Trump will run for reelection in 2020, but the Democrats need to do something to win. They failed miserably in 2016 and got crushed by right-wing enthusiasts who were sick of the whining, the political correctness, the lame protesting, the inability for people to know their gender, and the fact that most liberals are losers. People had enough of them and America fought back. Americans were tired of dealing with crybabies.
This is Obama’s first walk into politics since January and some theorists believe this is the start of the Democrat’s plan to defeat Republicans and take down President Trump. Slim chance considering the left can’t meme nor can they do anything remotely intelligent. Their ammo box is filled with crying, violent protesting, and getting offended by everything. Mix in a few gay dance parties if you really want to.
Maybe it was secret and someone blew the lid off it. Did Trump expose the meeting? I’m not really sure, but it seems like most news outlets know about it. Like I said, don’t fall for the “OMG Obama is having secret meetings” when the meetings are talked about by mainstream news.
Sources state that Obama will headline a fundraiser for the NDRC, which is the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. He’s meeting Holder and Nancy Pelosi, perhaps to talk about the NDRC, or maybe even other things. This meeting is set to take place in Washington, DC. This is also Obama’s first waltz back into politics since about January, 2017. He clearly had a good few months off, now he’s jumping back into politics, possibly to get a three year head start on helping Democrats regain control of the White House in 2020. Yeah, no chance for that. We’re going to vote like there’s no tomorrow to make sure liberals don’t ruin the country any further.
Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama are only missing their fellow dingbats, Maxine Waters and Hillary Clinton. Maybe if Hillary Clinton wasn’t busy selling “Nasty Woman” t-shirts on Twitter, then she would have time to go to the meeting. Or maybe she wasn’t invited. She lost once, so why would Democrats want her back? Low blow? Maybe, but selling or promoting t-shirts for Samantha Bee or Planned Parenthood kind of warrants a silly low blow joke.

BREAKING News NAVY SEAL Just ISSUED GRUESOME THREAT!!!
HE’S NOT BACKING DOWN!!!
A Facebook post is making the rounds on the social media platform this week. It warns the far left Clinton loons of potentially deadly consequences if they try to remove President Donald Trump from office.
The warning came from former Navy Seal and all around American Hero Craig “Sawman” Sawyer, He was the one who issued the grim warning to anyone thinking about trying to remove President Trump from the office in a way that is anything less than Constitutional.
According to our Constitution, Congress can only remove a sitting president for his inability to recognize that the Constitution itself is the law of the land and that he must abide by his oath to preserve, protect and defend it. Which is an oath every elected official takes but soon forgets? The very oath which would have made former President Barack Hussein Obama a prime target for easy removal from office, sparing us 8 horrendous years. But of course, since he was black and a far left wing nut bag who was protected by mob rule, nothing ever came of it. Even after it was proven beyond a doubt that he used the IRS to go after his enemies in the Tea Party.
Note: Nowhere here does this say innocent civilians, or a legit impeachment. On the contrary, this speaks specifically to an illegal silent coup by corrupt officials using false charges, as has leaked out by Clinton cronies lately. Anything else is a different scenario entirely. Honor our Constitution! Keep it straight. 👍
Americans, Patriots, pray for our nation. Pray for our President.
I’m hearing serious rumblings of a hostile, illegal coup against our democratically elected President by seditious, deep-state subversives funded by Soros & other globalists. Very disturbing.
Patriots, this would be nothing less than an act of war against the American people. It would be the removal of our boldest defender & last possibility of maintaining our protective Constitution. Under the boot of globalists, life as we know it, would immediately decline to the model that suits the globalist interest – Marxist/Socialist/Communist. They get complete control, you get zero. Freedom, Gone! Liberty, Gone! This agenda is evil and simply cannot be allowed, at ANY cost.
Like ALL military, law enforcement and government officials, I took an oath to defend our Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. By abandoning the rule of law and conducting a coup against the President & policies WE THE PEOPLE elected, they have made themselves enemies of the United States.
Under threat, ALL patriots, whether civilian, law enforcement, government, or military, have the duty to defend our Constitution against such enemies. Some speculate on “civil war”. I readily recognize a much more sobering reality: Anti-American subversives involved in ANY WAY in an unconstitutional coup against our President will be run down and executed immediately by the world’s most supreme warriors. There will be nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide, no mercy, no sense of humor. Harsh examples will be made. My prediction is it will be a gruesome massacre. Why? Because one side in this conflict has 8 Trillion bullets & the other side doesn’t know which bathroom to use. 🤣
It will likely only take a few hours. Lessons will be learned. History will take note. Order restored.
Patriots, We The American People stand united as one, against ALL enemies. We are peace-loving people who abide by the rule of law. Prepare yourselves in case this ridiculous insanity actually gets played out and the rule of law goes out the window under their gross miscarriage of our legal process. Shaking my head…
United We Stand! At the ready. USA! 🇺🇸
Note: Nowhere here does this say innocent civilians, or a legit impeachment. On the contrary, this speaks SPECIFICALLY…
Of course, the left is already calling this the result of “Trump Rhetoric,” and not what it actually is, the result of a silent destruction and overthrow of a sitting, Democratically elected, president.
After years of the left trying to convince us that we on the right are to be feared since we, as Barry Soetoro said, cling to our God, Guns, and Religion, we now see it was just an act to play the victim card. These left wing loons were under the impression that after a failed presidency, which turned our great nation into a petre dish of social justice lunatic experiments such as Obama did, they would never lose another election. They just can’t fathom the fact that an outsider like Donald Trump would actually win the presidency by as huge an electoral margin as he did. So they take it upon themselves to riot and protest violently.
Us on the right are a peace loving people and the last thing we crave is war, but if you push us, and destroy the man we chose to be our president, and who makes sense to us, we won’t go quietly into the night. So It’s best you on the left just sit your rear ends down and shut up, like we did for the dark 8 years of Obama before you all hurt yourselves.
Please share if you support President Donald J. Trump!
