NFL Player Speaks at McCain’s Funeral, Palin Not Even Invited

Published

on

The running mate of late Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) failed bid for president in 2008 was not invited to his funeral, while an NFL player for the Arizona Cardinals gave a keynote speech.

“Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr. describes his ‘unlikely’ friendship with Sen. John McCain. ‘I’m black, he was white. He ran for president, I run out of bounds,'” said CNN in a Tweet.

“How does this unlikely pair become friends?” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve asked myself the same question. But you know what the answer is. That’s just who [McCain] is. Over the several years I had the privilege of spending time with Sen. McCain, sometimes is was just a visit to our practices, other times it was him texting and saying ‘you need to pick it up this Sunday.”

“I’m thankful that through these moments, the opportunity that we had to share our lives, and more importantly, our stories,” he continued. “While from very different worlds, we developed a meaningful friendship, and this highlights the very rare and very special qualities of Sen. McCain that I came to admire. He didn’t judge people by the color of their skin, their gender, their backgrounds, their political affiliations, or their bank accounts. He evaluated them on the merits of their character and contents of their hearts.”

By all accounts, Fitzgerald’s speech was well-delivered and eloquent.

In stark contrast, McCain apparently was not pleased with the merits of former running mate Sarah Palin’s character, so much so that she was not even invited to his funeral.

Breitbart reported:

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family.

The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice President.

Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.

What Palin did to get herself disinvited from McCain’s funeral is unclear.
What is clear is that his failed presidential bid in 2008 embittered McCain for the rest of his life. He always envied the power of that position, and was never able to obtain it.

SURRENDER: ‘American Thinker’ Discredits Their Own Writing Staff to Appease Dominion Voting Systems

Bending the knee.

Published

on

The conservative opinion outlet American Thinker has published a letter discrediting themselves at the behest of Dominion Voting Systems.

We received a lengthy letter from Dominion’s defamation lawyers explaining why they believe that their client has been the victim of defamatory statements.  Having considered the full import of the letter, we have agreed to their request,” founder Thomas Lifton wrote in a blog.

They threw several of their published writers under the bus to publish the following statement to get Dominion off their backs:

American Thinker and contributors Andrea Widburg, R.D. Wedge, Brian Tomlinson, and Peggy Ryan have published pieces on www.AmericanThinker.com that falsely accuse US Dominion Inc., Dominion Voting Systems, Inc., and Dominion Voting Systems Corporation (collectively “Dominion”) of conspiring to steal the November 2020 election from Donald Trump. These pieces rely on discredited sources who have peddled debunked theories about Dominion’s supposed ties to Venezuela, fraud on Dominion’s machines that resulted in massive vote switching or weighted votes, and other claims falsely stating that there is credible evidence that Dominion acted fraudulently.

These statements are completely false and have no basis in fact. Industry experts and public officials alike have confirmed that Dominion conducted itself appropriately and that there is simply no evidence to support these claims.

It was wrong for us to publish these false statements. We apologize to Dominion for all of the harm this caused them and their employees. We also apologize to our readers for abandoning 9 journalistic principles and misrepresenting Dominion’s track record and its limited role in tabulating votes for the November 2020 election. We regret this grave error. 

American Thinker is far from the first entity to fold to Dominion and decide that serving the dollar bill is more important than upholding conservative principles.
Big League Politics reported on Newsmax reading a glorified press release from Dominion as they cowered to legal threats:

The ostensibly conservative TV network Newsmax has finished selling out after emerging as an upstart competitor to Fox News, caving to the infamous election software companies Dominion and Smartmatic after receiving legal threats.

“Since election day, various guests, attorneys, and elected officials have appeared on Newsmax and offered opinions and claims on Smartmatic and Dominion systems,” anchor John Tabacco said on the TV network.

“Both companies that offer voting software in the U.S., and Newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage and note that it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies,” he added.

The selling out only intensified at this point, as the anchor recited public relations spin that might as well have been written by a Dominion or Smartmatic hack.

“Newsmax has found no evidence that either Dominion or Smartmatic owns the other or has any business association with each other. We have no evidence that Dominion uses Smartmatic software or vice versa. No evidence has been offered that Dominion or Smartmatic used software or reprogrammed software that manipulated votes in the 2020 election,” Tabacco said.

Biden will be crowned president in less than a week, and the pathetic weakness of conservatives is to blame.
