Joseph I. Lieberman, March 22, 2019

On one of the first foreign trips I took with John McCain, he handed me his comb and asked me to straighten out his hair. He could not raise his arms above his shoulders to comb his own hair, a lifelong consequence — and not the only one — of the abuse he suffered during his more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison.

Years later, I traveled to Hanoi with McCain and visited that prison, which is now a museum. A group of Viet­namese high school students came through and when they recognized him, they began chanting his name, cheering, clapping and asking for pictures and autographs. McCain had become a hero to the Vietnamese people because he had sponsored the legislation that normalized U.S. relations with Vietnam, the country that had treated him so inhumanely.

Somehow, he had found it within his soul to put the past behind him and lead the way forward in U.S.-Vietnam relations because that was in the best interests of the United States. McCain was a passionate person, and he had a temper, but he rarely stayed angry at anyone. He liked people generally, but I also think he concluded that it wasn’t worth staying angry, particularly at those you needed to work with to get things done. He was always looking forward, not backward.

That is a powerful example for all of us, including President Trump, who has continued to attack McCain seven months after his death.

McCain’s life on Earth has ended. His legacy as a great American patriot, hero and exemplary public servant is beyond revision. The person who suffers most from the strange, posthumous attacks by the president is the president himself. Respectfully, the president should let McCain rest in peace and give his family the peace they deserve during this difficult time after his death.

The two main grievances Trump seems to have against McCain are not well-founded. If he were alive now, he would probably not answer the president. But I feel a responsibility as his friend to do so.

First, when McCain turned a controversial dossier involving Trump over to the FBI in 2016, it was exactly what he should have done, what I would have done and what every senator I served with did in similar circumstances. Serious allegations were made in that file, so McCain turned it over to the FBI to investigate. Giving the file to anyone else or throwing it away would have been a dereliction of duty and improper in our rule-of-law country.

Second, I know the president and many other Republicans were angry that McCain came back to Washington in July 2017 after his first operation to remove cancer from his brain and surprised everyone by voting against the repeal of Obamacare. But I can tell you, because I talked to him about it, that he didn’t vote that way to spite Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) or anyone else. People who heard his speech on the Senate floor that day or have read it since know that McCain cast that vote not against repeal of Obamacare but against the partisanship that had taken over the Senate and made it into a feckless, gridlocked, divided place.

After his brain cancer diagnosis, McCain understood he might not have long to live and that the vote might have been one of the last, best times he would have to make the points he needed to make. So he made them — and he did so brilliantly. As he said in his speech in the Senate: “Our deliberations . . . are more partisan, more tribal more of the time than any other time I remember. . . . We’ve been spinning our wheels on too many important issues because we keep trying to find a way to win without help from across the aisle.”

He continued: “The Obama administration and congressional Democrats shouldn’t have forced through Congress without any opposition support a social and economic change as massive as Obamacare. And we shouldn’t do the same with ours. . . . What have we to lose by trying to work together to find those solutions? We’re not getting much done apart. . . . The times when I was involved even in a modest way with working out a bipartisan response to a national problem or threat are the proudest moments of my career, and by far the most satisfying.”

That is the lesson Trump and every member of Congress should take away from McCain’s acts and words in the U.S. Senate on that long day in July 2017. Trump, because he is president, has the greatest capacity to move our government in the direction McCain appealed for that day and that most Americans clearly want.

I pray Trump will follow McCain’s advice and give Democrats in Congress an opportunity to work with him to solve some of our most pressing national problems and threats. And I also pray Democrats respond to Trump in good faith and with the national interest as their guiding light, which it consistently was for McCain.

You go on to pontificate about what you call Twitter rants that somehow, according to your opinion, convict him of low character. It is, in fact, the duty of all Americans to maintain, strengthen and enhance this great nation and President Trump is doing that while fighting the Progressives in Congress on a daily basis.

• I consider the Left to be almost all Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM.
• Delusional
Having false or unrealistic beliefs or opinions. (used in a sentence) Senators who think they will get agreement on a compromise tax bill are delusional.

Every time I turn on the TV, read a new current events book or see an article headline on the internet I have trouble believing the Left really thinks what they are saying and doing is good for America. I continue to believe that all that matters to the Left is personal power and money, and they will never have enough of either one. Here are a few recent examples of the Left’s delusion:
• In a recent interview with David Axelrod, former Obama Senior Advisor and CNN Political Commentator, Jeb Bush talked at length about why he feels that President Trump needs to have a Republican primary challenger.
• RINO Maryland Governor Hogan continues to talk publicly about the possibility that he will launch a primary campaign against President Trump. Several other RINO’s have also said they are considering doing the same thing. This is in spite of the fact that the RNC has made it crystal clear that they will not support a Republican primary challenger in any way.
• Beto suddenly reversed his position and jumped into the Democratic primary campaign with some of the most bizarre statements and campaign planks I have ever heard. It has also been made public that he has some really bad “baggage” from his younger days that some of the MSM knew about when he was challenging Senator Cruz in 2016 but did not report on it? He wrecked his vehicle while trying to run from a DUI arrest and was a member of an organized criminal hacker group. Beto raised and spent over 80 million dollars in that losing campaign. Cruz spent less than 40 million. When Pelosi and prominent Democrats in Texas were asked to name one thing that Beto accomplished when he was in an elected office all they could come up with was a bill to name a post office. After his formal announcement he got over 6 million dollars in donations in his first 24 hours. This was 100 thousand dollars more than Bernie Sanders raised in his first 24 hours. Where is all the money coming from?
• Stacy Abrams, the handpicked, almost governor of Georgia is in Washington deciding if she is going to enter the crowded Democratic presidential primary. In an interview with Steven Ginsberg, the National Editor of The Washington Post she said, "I think that I am a skilled communicator, I think I'm a very good thinker. No, I know I'm a good thinker. I know I have policy chops. I have foreign policy experience. . . . I've done a great deal of work on a number of issues”. When she announced her run for Georgia Governor she had over $250,000 in credit card debt and owed the IRS $50,000. Now she is a potential presidential candidate with no known source of income? “If she decides to make the leap, the campaign would talk about race and identity, organizing, voter engagement and voter suppression, among other things”. Her position is that she lost the Georgia race because elections in Georgia, “are neither fair or free”. Based on some pretty credible reports it was her campaign that had a “large warehouse operation” doing everything possible to “stuff the ballot boxes”. Where is the money coming from?
• Even Chelsea Clinton has been attacked by the Left! At a vigil in N.Y. for the New Zealand mosque victims she was confronted by a group of students who claimed that she was partially responsible for the shootings because she had previously “stoked hatred against Muslims”. Her “sin” was making a public statement against Rep Omar’s anti-sematic public policy statements! Chelsea was invited to be part of that vigil?
• Special Council Mueller filed documents in the U.S. District Court in Washington indicating that his “Russia interference with our elections probe” is ongoing. This is the clearest indication to date that the Left intends to keep this unjustified “investigation in search of a crime” going as long as they can. Tens of Millions of taxpayer dollars spent so far (that we know about) and many lives ruined with the only clear evidence so far indicating that the Obama White House, the DOJ, the FBI, the DNC and the Clinton Campaign all broke numerous laws and spent millions of dollars colluding and illegally trying to fix the election for Hillary.
• The U.S. House of Representatives spent days last week passing a meaningless resolution demanding that the Mueller report (whenever it gets delivered to the A.G.) be made public in its entirety (which cannot be done for many legal reasons including national security). The only reason for doing this was to try and make the Republicans look bad when they did not vote for it. With President Trump’s full public support all the Republicans joined all the Democrats in voting for the meaningless resolution. This was nothing but a useless Democrat publicity stunt that wasted a lot of taxpayer money.
• All indications are that “Speaker” Pelosi is losing control of her party in the House. I am reminded of when she was Speaker before and said this about Obamacare, “we must pass the bill so we can see what is in it”. Yes, there is TV footage of her saying that. I am now certain that she is that delusional. Under her leadership none of “the People’s Business” is getting done in the House.
• Pelosi went public with her plans to support changing the voting age in America from 18 years old to 16 years old!
• When an Army General was reporting to a congressional committee regarding the U.S. military’s needs in the upcoming budget year some representatives demanded our military remove an aircraft carrier and other ships from their requested items and replace them with airplanes that they said they did not need or want. With China rapidly becoming the number one threat to the world on the seas our military really needed the aircraft carrier and ships. I wonder how much money the lobbyist spent to get that done?
• When Joe Biden said publicly that V.P. Pence is a “nice guy” the current Democrat declared presidential candidates “lined up” to denigrate Biden for saying that!
• When it was reported that people in ICE detention centers were quarantined as a result of an outbreaks of mumps, measles and other contagious diseases the on-line attacks from the left went ballistic. They said things like this was “Trump’s Nazi death camps” and “they were for genocide on US soil. Repeat it with filthy MAGAs”. There were hundreds of comments like this on one CNN article.
• When asked about the college admissions cheating scandal in a televised interview Senator Warren immediately condemned them. This is the person who signed forms at Harvard claiming to be part Native American so she would get special status as a minority on the staff. She did the same thing on her Texas Bar application and in other places.
• During an interview at the SXSW conference recently AOC said. “we must overhaul America’s garbage status quo, which is enslaved to irredeemable capitalism”. She also said that, “in America if you are unemployed you are left to die in the streets”.
• Chris Wallace is increasingly showing his liberal side. In a recent interview with another Trump hater on Fox, Shepard Smith he said that, “there is no way Donald Trump can win a second term with just his base and he doesn’t seem to care about anyone else”. From what I have seen this is absolutely NOT TRUE!

Definitely DELUSIONAL!

When you add to the above the daily increase of Democrats officially declaring they are running for president, all with the same “capitalism bad, socialism good, raise taxes on corporations and the rich” platform, it is going to be an INTERESTING media circus from now until November 3, 2020! And I still think that the Left will not succeed in removing President Trump from office and middle America will vote overwhelmingly to re-elect Him!

This ought to really pissss off the liberals, snowflakes, and Trump haters.

Seems that now, John McCain is being outed as one of the people who leaked the Steele Dossier, and thus set the wheels in motion for the FISA Warrants (remember here, 73 total) in a totally un-constitutional spying caper against then candidate Trump. Just on One America News, and not to mention the plethora of articles that have surfaced about McCains involvement in the UN-VERIFIED Steele Dossier providing links back to who - of all places - ..... wait for it ..... CNN> .... and some form of input via some paid writers for the same. (Lets not even mention the YahooNews article that followed)

WOW....!!! BAM.....!!!! Russia Collusion...?? Nah, Nothing Burger, as already stated by many.

As I've stated before, for the benefit of the resident liberal snowflakes and moonbats here on OPP, Collusion is not illegal. Speaking with the leaders of a foreign country before inauguration, is not illegal. In fact, in every previous administration its perfectly normal. But, for you moonbats and liberals, just because it was Trump...……….wow..!! Well you all know the rest of the story. Having business dealings with a foreign country before and during a campaign, is not illegal.

And yet all you moonbats and liberals just keep at it.... Oooooh, They got Trump now. Mueller has Trump in a corner. Just days till Trump is Indicted. Just days until Trump is impeached...

Ya know, if you moonbats and liberals would just KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT you would save 1000 tons of greenhouse gas and help save the planet.

And what did CNN just get awarded for...?? Why, supporting "Free Speech", and all the while censoring Alex Jones and InfoWars. Alex Jones may be a lot of things, but he tries very hard to stick with THE TRUTH. .....!!!! I know you Trump haters and InfoWars bashers find that hard to swallow, but swallow you will, the easy way, or the hard way. Like it or not, Alex Jones and InfoWars have ALREADY been vindicated - several years past.. And yet, the liberal snowflake crowd and moonbats can't accept it.

Well, you snowflakes and liberal moonbats, you're welcome to go with that. After all it is a free country, with free speech. Unless of course until someone like Alex Jones and InfoWars says something you don't want to hear.... Or me....

So where do we go from here..??? Well, its pretty evident, if you listen to Beto "The Fraud" O'Rourke. We're all going to die in 12 years. And of course, just to listen to the "Democrat Liberal Crowd" we had better open up our borders to ALL immigrants. Of course if you listen closely, getting in more Democrat voters ILLEGALLY has something to do with saving the planet... Hey, WELCOME, AOC, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillenbrand, Beto O'Rourke will be happy to have you on their doorstep. Next time one of you illegal immigrants - or MS-13 Gang members that snuck in with them - want to KILL someone, why don't you kill one of theirs....?? Or maybe, raid their refrigerator...?? Or maybe bum a couple hundred bucks off them instead of siphoning off MY hard earned tax dollars..??

Are you listening yet snowflakes..?? Perhaps a diaroama of the future under "Democratic Socialism" would be in order..?? Finlands healthcare system just failed this past week.. Thanks in large part to the influx of 'Immigrants'. Sweden's 'National Guard' has been activated for the first time in 40 years, thanks in large part to the 'Immigrant' problem'. (A young teen girl walking home from school was raped 3 times by 'Immigrants' in Sweden this past week.) France is in a state of perpetual riot by the 'Yellow Vests' (18 weeks now, if you don't follow the news.) thanks in part to Macron's "Tax Everybody Out of Existence" policy and after that, dealing with the 'Immigrant Problem'. Germany's Angela Merkel now under fire to resign over her "Immigration" policy. Venezuela is a hellhole of misery thanks to 'Socialism'. Spain and Caladonia now split over "Democratic Socialism".. Caladonianians now want to run their own affairs, which includes 'Limited Immigration' or 'No Immigration'... (Hmmm, who would have thought.)

Ya, Now Its Slowly Coming Out. Houston, we got a problem.....

How much further does it need to go before you liberal snowflake's and moonbats wake up...??
This ought to really pissss off the liberals, snow... (show quote)

Now stone left unturned here.
