McCain says Obama called to thank him for stopping ObamaCare repeal in Senate

McCain continues to reveal just how treacherous he has been in the Senate in his new book, “The Restless Wave.”
Yet another move McCain made against conservatives is revealed in the book when McCain brags about how he voted against the repeal of Obamacare and Obama personally called him to thank him.


Rather that calling his book “The Restless Wave,” McCain should have made it a how to guide on how to be a RINO.
While the GOP had regularly made moves to repeal Obama’s unconstitutional Obamacare, McCain did not exactly toe the company line.
McCain warmly tells the story of how he voted against the repeal and how his buddy Obama called him after he cast his vote.
“Among the people who called to thank me was President Obama,” McCain wrote.
“He added that he was counting on me to be an outspoken and independent voice for the causes I believed in as I had been during his presidency. I thanked him, and said I would try to be,” McCain further stated.

Swimming Upstream

Somehow, McCain became the GOP nominee when Obama ran for his first term.
He never garnered the support of hardcore conservatives, mostly because of his tendency to walk the line.
McCain came from a state overrun with undocumented immigrants, yet he did not have a hardline immigration stance.
Had he been elected, our current situation might be far worse than it is today.
McCain has rarely supported Trump during this presidency.
And, after reading some passages from his book, it seems like the times he actually did vote in favor of something Trump supported, it made him sick to do so.
Along with people like Jeff Flake, Senator McCain has set conservatives back significantly.

Should McCain Retire?

We can only imagine how much further along this administration would actually be had it not been for McCain using what amounted to be a swing vote to strike down legislation.
His resistance will not be missed when he finally gives up his seat to focus on his health.

Barron Trump is being bullied at school

Being the president’s son has its disadvantages.
President Trump’s 12-year old son Barron is reportedly getting bullied at school. 
Barron has been bullied – and defended – by journalists, comedians, writers, and politicians since his father became president.

Barron getting bullied

Barron is getting bullied because of his father’s scandals, according to gossip site Hollywood Life. An inside source said that Melania is heartbroken over the way her son is being treated.
Hollywood Life mentioned the bullying in an article on how Melania is handling the news that Stormy Daniels sued her husband for defamation. Like his mother, Barron is suffering from the scandal embroiling the president.
“‘Worst of all, her [Melania] heart breaks for her son who gets regularly teased at school and has a hard time defending his father to his classmates,’ the insider shared.”
“It’s so unfortunate for someone so young and innocent to have to deal with that so we definitely hope that Barron and Melania feel better soon,” the magazine continues.
Stormy Daniels alleges that she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, shortly after his marriage to Melania. Barron would have been a baby at the time of the affair.

Pattern of bullying

It’s unfortunate that Barron is being targeted by his own classmates. What’s sadder is that it’s not just children who have ganged up on him.
In January of last year, Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich tweeted that Barron will be the world’s “first home-school school shooter.” She was suspended over the remarks and later apologized.
Some unlikely figures have stepped in to defend Barron from bullies. Monica Lewinsky defended him after the “school shooter” remark, tweeting “All children need to be protected from bullying + mockery . . . let’s be better than this.”

Rosie O’Donnell shared a video in November of 2016 claiming that Barron has autism. She, too, apologized.
But that’s not all. Barron was also targeted by a journalist at the Daily Caller who criticized his casual way of dressing. Melania thanked Chelsea Clinton after she stepped in to defend her son.

Is the media contributing to the bullying of Barron Trump?

“The youngest Trump doesn’t have any responsibilities as the president’s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public,” the columnist wrote.
Barron doesn’t deserve this. We expect better from adults; with kids, it’s a little different. Hopefully if Barron stands up for himself his peers will leave him alone.

Man arrested for child pornography after trying to insult Trump with graphic Facebook photo

Criticism of the White House sunk to an all new low after a Pennsylvania man used a pornographic image of an infant girl to express his disgust for President Donald Trump.
Forty-six-year-old Peter Austin Frateschi of Back Mountain was arrested on charges of child pornography, disseminating a photo of a child sex act and criminal use of a communication facility. He told police that he uploaded the image, which portrays an infant’s posterior and genitalia, to Facebook to demonstrate which body part he feels the president most closely resembles.

What was he thinking?

Lucerne County detectives began investigating Frateschi after tips from Facebook flagging the offensive material. Police were later able to trace the source of the image to one of the computers in the suspect’s home. Frateschi admitted to posting the image on an account under the user name Dylan Roberts, a stage name that he uses when performing as a musician.
Although Frateschi told law enforcement that he found the image listed under results from a Google search, police were unable to find the offensive picture posted anywhere on the internet when mimicking his search.
However, the premier internet search engine uses state-of-the-art scrubbing software to regularly purge its servers of offensive material, creating the likelihood that when the image was flagged on Facebook, it was subsequently eliminated from search results.

From Facebook prison to real prison

Posting the objectionable digital photo on social media quickly landed Frateschi in what he called “Facebook jail,” where his account was indefinitely suspended for violating the company’s terms of service. Betraying his utter tone deafness, Frateschi told investigators that he believed that his account was revoked for criticizing the president, and not for posting nude images of a child.
When pressed by detectives, Frateschi told them that he “may have been intoxicated.” He told them if he knew that the photo depicted an infant he would never have posted it because “that kind of stuff disgusts him.”
After scouting through the Trump critic’s electronic devices, investigators found the image on Frateschi’s laptop under a folder marked “Trump1.” The file was created on Feb. 9, the same day that he uploaded it to social media to insult the president.

Should Frateschi go to jail for this?
