McCain Death Watch: What the End of McCain Means for America

The following piece was clearly written before the big announcement Wednesday evening that Senator John McCain is suffering from what is obviously terminal brain cancer.

McCain’s doom may be an unhappy moment for him, his family, and the neocon warmongers that counted on him to get World War III done, but for the rest of America and the world, McCain’s total powerlessness is a good thing.

I’ve bolded key points for you skim readers.

The Republicans finally giving up on passing an Obamacare Lite bill (now they’re going for full repeal with no immediate replacement) is a signal that big changes are on the horizon.

Trump seems more than happy with this outcome. As he should be, since this is what he originally promised.

But John McCain and the GOP leadership probably didn’t appreciate the open insurrection in the Senate.

And you can bet that now the Democrats are running scared. That they remain committed to Russia-Gate tells you just how badly they are positioned for the 2018 midterms.

With donations crashing, Kid Rock declaring to run against Debbie Stabenow in Michigan, and Diane Feinstein retiring there is the potential for a real collapse of seniority for the Democrats at the committee level in the Senate, where all the power is concentrated.

And that brings me to John McCain. Because, as I made clear in my last article, John McCain is the lynchpin to Trump getting some semblance of control over Congress. McCain is a powerful senior member of a number of committees. He ran for re-election at 79 years old to retain that seniority for the neoconservatives to enact its nihilistic foreign policy.

Make no mistake, McCain, like the rest of the DNC and GOP leadership, is a member of the “Uniparty.” That’s the one that frog-marches us towards global government, universal suffering and perpetual war.

Which is why Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate will vote on a clean repeal of Obamacare without any replacement is so important.

First, it means that John McCain’s health issues are more serious than they have let on to this point. Because McCain is the leading stalking horse for the Democrats within the GOP. If he leads the way, he can keep enough members in line to get a bad bill passed.

Second, it means that the GOP leadership no longer feels it needs Obamacare to wipe the floor with the Democrats in the 2018 mid-terms.

Third, it begins the collapse of the Uniparty opposition within the GOP to Trump’s domestic policy. McConnell wouldn’t have done this if there was a way to salvage Obamacare for its corporate backers – the ones who wrote the bill in the first place. So, like the good cockroach he is, he is acceding to the reality that if they don’t repeal Obamacare now, when it collapses for real it will no longer be the Democrats’ issue.

It’ll be theirs.

But there’s more to this saga. It’s likely the end of John McCain as a major political force. Obamacare is the thin edge of the wedge that breaks the wall in front of Trump’s plans for reform. It’s a major campaign promise fulfilled. I told you that Trump needed to deal with McCain to get things moving.

It seems that time and karma may have done the job for him.

This piece barely scratches the surface of what McCain’s doom means to American foreign and domestic policy. With Trump announcing on Wednesday that he was pulling the CIA out of Syria in accord with President Putin’s wishes, Trump was sticking it to dying McCain, who’s been a real obstructionist to draining the swamp and making America great.

Now, if only Hillary would kick the bucket.

  1. They keep posting the clip from 2008 where the senile old woman tells McCain that Obama ‘is – he’s an Arab.’ McCain defends his opponent: he’s a wonderful family man, etc. This defense of a violent Communist who did untold harm to America is one of McCain’s finest hours – apparently.

    Now the shoe is on the other foot. McCain has BECOME that senile old woman. ‘Trump is – he’s a Russian. Look at this DOSSIER I found.’

    When the other side makes it this obvious that you are their favorite opponent ever, it might be time to do some serious introspection.

  2. I prefer to beat opponents with better ideas. McCain was what Arizona voters wanted, they bought into him so they owned him. Where I am from I am stuck with the likes of Hank Johnson and Johnny Issakson, a Dem and a Rino both who will likely die in office because my low info colleagues are utterly devoted to lies and incompetence. If either do leave office you can bet we’ll get a carbon copy replacement. McCain probably isn’t a jerk, the his supporters have to carry that title.

    • I was stuck with (Magic Bullet) Arlen Spectre. Happily, the same fate befell that POS. May they all reap the same reward. 🙂

  3. I don’t know about the Machiavellian machinations of these slugs. I know only what I read in the jew-news (which we know is false/distorted). I do know that I was a young man when McCain was first elected to the Senate. I recall his role in the Savings and Loan Scandal (Keating Five) and his becoming the biggest RINO (or maverick as he came to be known) who obstructed every decent idea that would have benefitted America/Americans. He took a dive in the 2008 election, and we got Obamohammed as president. Thus, I give zero f*cks about his brain cancer. I wish that they all would get brain cancer, so we could start with a fresh slate.

  4. This has to be some of the best news I have heard all year. I will forever remember the 2008 campaign when McCain said that if we have to stay in Iraq for 100 years, then that is what we should do, and that is what he WOULD do. Since then, McCain has not missed an opportunity beat the war drums on Libya, Syria, Iraq, Russia, and of course, Iran.

    Mr. McCain does not represent the State of Arizona, the people of Arizona, nor the people of the United States, Mr. McCain is a Nation Wrecker of the sort that would make any blood Jew proud. Mr. McCain represents that criminal enterprise known as Israel, and ONLY Israel.

  5. Having had friends who died of glioblastoma, I can’t in their loving memory celebrate this means of demise for this truly wretched neocon.

    But I’m not shedding emotional tears either. This puppet of Israel is far past his pull date. We know the neocohens are scheming already re his replacement and the idiots who voted for him all these years will be looking for a beanie and a blue six-pointed star flag.
