President Donald J. Trump has issued a stern warning to DC’s most relentless swamp monster, Sen. John McCain, regarding comments he made at an award ceremony last week in Philadelphia.
Speaking at the event, held at the National Constitution Center, McCain has warned against “spurious nationalism” and negative sentiments about globalism.
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of Earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,” McCain said.
The speech was widely seen as yet another dig at Trump and his “America First” campaign from the “Never-Trump” Arizona senator who has become a darling to the left.
On Tuesday, Trump fired back stating that while he is currently being “very, very nice” at some point he will fight back and “it won’t be pretty.”
“People have to careful, because at some point I fight back,” Trump told WMAL radio host Chris Plante. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
McCain responded to Trump’s warning by telling a CNN reporter that he has “faced far greater challenges than this.”

It remains unclear if the old “songbird” handled any of those “greater challenges” very well.
CAUGHT IN A LIE: Lincoln Project Neocons Knew of John Weaver’s Grooming, Still Sought to Establish Media Organization With Him
Higher-ups knew of allegations against Weaver, and still wanted to turn the Lincoln Project into a media organization.
A new report has claimed that Lincoln Project leadership thought of turning their super PAC into a media organization and bringing John Weaver on board, even though they knew about grooming allegations against him.
The New York Times published the report Monday afternoon, which was titled “Inside the Lincoln Project’s Secrets, Side Deals and Scandals.”
Co-founder Steve Schmidt held a meeting at his Utah home a few days before the 2020 election to discuss transforming the Lincoln Project into a massive media organization. He said to the group that “five years from now, there will be a dozen billion-dollar media companies that don’t exist today. I would like to build one, and would invite all of you to be part of that.”
According to the New York Times, Schmidt had already filed papers to create TLP Media back in September and October 2020 with Reed Galen, Rick Wilson, and John Weaver. The report said that “its aim was to transform the original project, a super PAC, into a far more lucrative venture under their control.”
But it has been established that Schmidt and other leaders knew about the allegations against Weaver as early as March 2020, despite previously claiming they didn’t. They appear to have been so focused on grifting and lining their own pockets that Weaver’s behavior didn’t really matter to them. It wasn’t until multiple accusers came forward in January that Schmidt, Wilson, and others disavowed and cut ties with Weaver.
Former staffers like George Conway have called for the disbanding of the Lincoln Project altogether, though the Times states that Steve Schmidt’s faction “intends to continue it as a modern media campaign against global forces of authoritarianism, while also monetizing the movement.”
