Here’s a musical send off for John McCain… May you rot in hell.
Here is part of Senator John McCain’s farwell statement,
“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries…We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals.” ~Senator John McCain

Here is a documentary we all need to see, especially you.
In ACTIVE MEASURES, Jack Bryan exposes a 30-year history of covert political warfare devised by Vladimir Putin to disrupt, influence, and ultimately control world events, democratic nations through cyber attacks, propaganda campaigns, and corruption. In the process, the filmmakers follow a trail of money, real estate, mob connections, and on the record confessions to expose an insidious plot that leads directly back to The White House. Unravelling the true depth and scope of “the Russia story,” as we have come to know it, it is a jarring reminder that some conspiracies hide in plain sight.
Senator John McCain, more of a man than you could ever dream of being.
Why? Cause he could sing like a songbird?
Naw, he was a loser.
@Weenis Lookie here, a liberal defending a republican war hero. If someone doesn’t agree with every fucking little thing you believe in, you eat them. Talk about weak and feeble. Well,that’s because you are a gullible, weak “man” who hides behind guns..just like your buddy who posted this disgusting piece of crap.
‘Songbird John’ McCain? No evidence McCain helped enemy in Vietnam
“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”
One of the few things I agree with him on.
The McCain legacy.
I’ll drink to that.
It’s a good time to revisit the full story of the 5.5 years McCain spent being held captive and even tortured in North Vietnam, during which guards actually asked him if he wanted to leave early because he was an admiral’s son. Here’s how it went down when “The Cat,” the commander of the prison camps, offered him early release, according to a gripping Arizona Republic profile from 2007:
McCain realized that the Code of Conduct gave him no choice. [Everett] Alvarez, who was being held elsewhere, was supposed to be the first man released.
“I just knew it wasn’t the right thing to do,” he said. “I knew that they wouldn’t have offered it to me if I hadn’t been the son of an admiral.
“I just didn’t think it was the honorable thing to do.”…McCain calmly told The Cat that the prisoners must be released in the order they were captured, starting with Alvarez. [The Arizona Republic]
We certainly live in a world of miss-information, when didn’t we? It’s just now everything is available on the internet and you can interpret it anyway you like and then post it as your own truth. This was doing the rounds on FB and agree with the author that we maybe shouldn’t speak ill of the dead, but facts do need to be made clear and these do seem to be undeniable facts.
Lee Maust Sr I do not believe it is good manners to speak ill of the dead. However, the current outrageous extreme lionization of John McCain, in what is an obvious effort to paint him as a gallant warrior, who opposed a foul miscreant President – even after his death – is too much propaganda to let pass unremarked.
The overkill of adoration by the Establishments, on both sides, the MSM and many dozens of well known Left wing demagogues, is all the evidence required to truly expose the height of hypocrisy which colored the life of this privileged con man. The fact that he hated Donald Trump only added to their fervor.
To counterbalance the propaganda, the following is a fact based analysis of the career of John McCain by someone who has apparently done their research.
From my friend Joanne Law:
McCAIN IS “NO WAR HERO” ~ TRUMP IS RIGHT !
(Written by an Active Marine)
McCain has never really earned anything. He is from a wealthy pampered background and not fit to lead this nation.
A “war hero” doesn’t finish 894th out of 899 and still get stationed at a Navy champagne unit and promoted ahead of all but two of his 898 other classmates.
A “war hero” doesn’t crash three U.S. Navy jets out of sheer incompetence and ineptitude, including two during non-combat training sessions.
A “war hero” doesn’t get written up on drunk-and-disorderly, fraternization, disobeying orders, and insubordination charges more than two dozen times in less than three years.
A “war hero” doesn’t get promoted to squadron commander of the air field named after his own grandfather immediately after crashing his third airplane.
A “war hero” doesn’t have all the military records that cover his time in Vietnam and all disciplinary actions against him censored and sealed “as a matter of national security.”
A “war hero” doesn’t get 28 medals awarded all after-the-fact “for bravery” for no other reason than being shot down and captured and then go on a celebrity public relations tour because he’s the son of two acclaimed Navy admirals.
A “war hero” doesn’t repeatedly cheat on the wife who’s back in the states waiting for him, and then cheat on her more when he returns to the states, and then divorce and abandon her and his children for an heiress worth billions of dollars ( Cindy McCain, who helped him cheat on his wife).
A “war hero” doesn’t systematically vote against every single pay and benefit increase for military and veterans throughout his entire political career, all the while claiming to be “the soldier’s Congressman,” and then take credit for the passage of a G.I. benefits bill that he voted AGAINST. A “war hero” McCain lost jet number one in 1958 when he plunged into Corpus Christi Bay while practicing landings. He was knocked unconscious by the impact coming to as the plane settled to the bottom. McCain’s second crash occurred while he was deployed in the Mediterranean. “Flying too low over the Iberian Peninsula,” Timberg wrote, “he took out some power lines [reminiscent of the 1998 incident in which a Marine Corps jet sliced through the cables of a gondola at an Italian ski resort, killing 20] which led to a spate of newspaper stories in which he was predictably identified as the son of an admiral. ”McCain’s third crash occurred when he was returning from flying a Navy trainer solo to Philadelphia for an Army-Navy football game. Timberg reported that McCain radioed, “I’ve got a flameout” and went through standard re-light procedures three times before ejecting at one thousand feet. McCain landed on a deserted beach moments before the plane slammed into a clump of trees. McCain’s fifth loss happened during his 23rd mission over North Vietnam on Oct. 26, 1967, when McCain’s A-4 Skyhawk was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. McCain ejected from the plane breaking both arms and a leg in the process and subsequently parachuted into Truc Bach Lake near Hanoi.
For 23 combat missions (an estimated 20 hours over enemy territory), the U.S. Navy awarded McCain a Silver Star, a Legion of Merit for Valor, a Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Stars, two Commendation medals plus two Purple Hearts and a dozen service medals. “McCain had roughly 20 hours in combat,” explains Bill Bell, a veteran of Vietnam and former chief of the U.S. Office for POW/MIA Affairs — the first official U.S. representative in Vietnam since the 1973 fall of Saigon. “Since McCain got 28 medals,” Bell continues, “that equals out to about a medal-and-a-half for each hour he spent in combat. There were infantry guys — grunts on the ground — who had more than 7,000 hours in combat and I can tell you that there were times and situations where I’m sure a prison cell would have looked pretty good to them by comparison. The question really is how many guys got that number of medals for not being shot down.”
For years, McCain has been an unchecked master at manipulating an overly friendly and biased news media. The former POW turned Congressman, turned U.S. Senator and switched to the Republican party, though still acting as if he was a democrat, also had his military records sealed, has managed to gloss over his failures as a pilot by exaggerated his military service and lying about his feats of heroism.
So, the bottom line is that John McCain is a manipulator, a liar, and a adulterer.
@rogerb The reasons listed is easier to understand than Trump’s reason.
Do you really think that you are not a war hero if you are captured? That’s the only reason Trump has given.
I was not a fan of McCain’s, but I did admire the times he would cross the aisle and work with democrats.
The original poster on this post said McCain should rot in hell. I highly disagree with that.
Please cite your source.
Hero is a very over used emotive word these days. We call all sorts of people hero’s and it would be debatable if many of them deserved it. The word seems to be used to win a point, rather than give any evidence of their honour.
Citing my source? I put the name of the person who made the post on FB and he mentions the name of the person who listed McCains deeds. I googled a few of them and they seem to be accurate.
@rogerb For someone who proclaims there is so much mis-information on the internet, you certainly are adding to it. You need to fact check your stuff from the unknown source, “written by an active Marine”. The little blog has been floating around the internet since 2015 as an eRumor, word for word. You got a whole lot of false information spread here.
I’m not really adding to it when as you say that blog has floated around the internet since 2015. But yeah i get it, it’s your way to start discrediting someones opinion. The article you have posted does claim some of the facts to be incorrect, but there is still enough truth even within that article to cast doubt on his record.
“the crash in North Vietnam was his fifth crash as an airman, not his third.” “Also, the Navy unsealed John McCain’s military record in 2008” Doesn’t that make you wonder why they were sealed and for so long? “It’s true that John McCain graduated near the bottom of his class at the U.S. Naval Academy in 1958. Some reports say that he graduated 790th out of 795 students.” “In that time he received 17 awards and decorations. Besides the Silver Star Medal, McCain also received the Legion of Merit with a combat “V” and one gold star, a Distinguished Flying Cross and a Bronze Star Medal with a combat “V” and two gold stars.” So he was still highly decorated when others that did more were not. Other points about his conduct have conveniently been left out. So an article that would obviously been written by a pro McCain supporter still can’t hide some of the facts about him. And yes you have precisely highlighted my point that both articles are misleading and the truth now is very difficult to discern.
Immortal Pirate was also a POW and survived horrible tortures by the Vietnamese. He still has nightmares and bamboo scars 50 years later. Being captured and tortured doesn’t make you a hero. Keeping his mouth shut and not giving away battle plans and names is the only heroic feat that Immortal Pirate managed to do. Immortal Pirate persevered through the pain of beatings and being captive. McCain sang like a songbird and caused many other soldiers to be killed. They are not here today to tell of their deaths because of McCain —– they are dead.
I don’t care who they are, once a person dies talking disrespectfully about them is off limits to me. Reason is simple, my grampa used to say I will talk shit all day long about the living because they can defend themselves, after they die they can no longer do so, so 1. Its outright disrespect and 2. I’m wasting my breath because they can’t hear and don’t care.
