The daughter of a late “Republican” Senator praised the family of former vice president and 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate on Thursday, calling the family “resilient.”
@JoeBiden @DrBiden & the entire Biden family today – four years after the passing of their son Beau. You are a wonderful, resilient family and your strength through pain continues to inspire me every day,” said Meghan McCain, daughter of late John McCain on Twitter.
Thinking of @JoeBiden @DrBiden & the entire Biden family today – four years after the passing of their son Beau. You are a wonderful, resilient family and your strength through pain continues to inspire me every day.

Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015. He was 46. The McCain patriarch died of brain cancer last year.
But the Bidens are not quite squeaky clean, as McCain would have us think. Hunter Biden, the family’s youngest son, returned a rental car to an Arizona Hertz days before the 2016 election, in which a crack pipe, two Washington, D.C. driver’s licenses, several credit cards, and a Delaware Attorney General’s badge were found. Hunter, who dated his brother Beau’s widow, was also caught using an Ashley Madison account in 2015. Ashley Madison is a failed dating service for people seeking to have affairs. Biden himself is something of a deviant, and stands accused of groping several women.
McCain is the token “Republican” on ABC’s “The View,” where she pretends to oppose radical leftists Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, but secretly longs to be accepted in their elite liberal circle.
She has faced scrutiny for her family’s apparent support of Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign instead of supporting President Donald J. Trump. Trump and John McCain feuded until McCain’s death.
Big League Politics reported:
According to a Wednesday afternoon report, the family of late Senator John McCain, officially a Republican, but a bona fide globalist, will support former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, in his 2020 bid for President.
“Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on ‘The View,’ will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020,” according to The Washington Examiner.
The McCains and the Bidens are two long-running, well-entrenched families, politically speaking. Both have been members of the Washington, D.C. elite for several decades. Biden has run two failed presidential campaigns. McCain ran one in 2008.
“A former McCain campaign official with close ties to the family said support for Biden was a given, but they needed to calculate how they could best help the former vice president,” the reports said. “Both Cindy and Meghan McCain remain Republicans, and one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good. ‘It’s undeniable that Joe Biden and the McCain family have a very close, personal relationship. It’s about what’s good for him [Biden].’”

New York Young Republican Club Teams Up With Swedish Youth Organization to Promote Populism
On September 18, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club announced a partnership with Konservativa Förbundet, a nonpartisan student organization with the mission of spreading conservative views among the Swedish youth.
The partnership between the two conservative organizations has plans of promoting cultural exchange by providing networking opportunities and offering members of each organization the chance to learn about the political and social context they operate in.
The NY Young Republican Club noted that Sweden became the first country to get rid of censorship and protect the freedom of the press in 1766. The Freedom of Act (Tryckfrihetsförordningen), which is descended from that Enlightenment-era law, forms an integral part of Sweden’s uncodified constitution. The U.S. followed in Sweden’s footsteps by embracing the freedom of the press through its ratification of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Although leftist Swedish governments passed laws banning “hate speech” over the past few years, free speech is still strong compared to other EU members with more draconian hate speech policies. The NY Young Republican Club and Konservativa Förbundet will hold discussions on the best practices to combat free speech infringements. They will use specific examples such as the case of Austin Tong to put free speech awareness on the map.
Swedish immigrants were one of the most important migrant groups that came to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century. 1.4 million first and second-generation Swedish immigrants lived in the U.S. by 1910. They left their mark on the frontier and prominent cities such as Chicago. Swedish Americans like John Nordstrom and Oscar Frederick founded corporations that are among the most respected in the country.
Although the use of the Swedish language decreased among Swedish migrants during World War I, Swedish Americans still maintain solid cultural institutions and the achievements of the early waves of Swedish migrants have laid the foundation for a successful migration story.
In the 21st century, Sweden and the U.S. still have strong economic ties. American companies have a strong presence in Sweden, while Swedish retailers such as H&M and IKEA have grown significantly in the U.S. market. As first world, service economies, both countries face similar challenges. Although Swedish migrants largely came to the U.S. legally in the 19th century and immediately made economic contributions, both Sweden and the U.S. are taking in large swaths of low-skilled workers who tend to be burdens on their respective countries’ welfare and social services.
The NY Young Republican Club and Konservativa Förbundet view this trend as “unsustainable.”
In its statement, the NY Young Republican Club concluded:
In addition, the New York Young Republican Club pledges to defend the rights of Swedish Americans and expatriate Swedes to exercise their cultural heritage in a proud and unabashed manner. While Midsummer New York 2020 was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic, we look forward to this annual event returning to Battery Park City in 2021.
The NY Young Republican Club has been active lately in forging alliances with different groups across the globe. BLP previously reported on one of their recent partnerships with Lega Giovani, the youth wing of the Lega party in Italy.
Populist movements across the world will need to band together and pool resources to ensure that they can fight back against their respective political establishments.
Groups like the NY Young Republican Club are leading the way in promoting such a model of international cooperation.
