Trump Warns McCain: “I fight back”

As a dead man walking, Senator John McCain is free to unleash the evil that lies within his tortured soul.

In the past he was partially constrained by his desire to be reelected. He no longer has that worry. He’s letting it all hang out now. His master, Satan, will be waiting for him at the gates of Hell, welcoming a brother.

CNN

President Donald Trump, hours after Sen. John McCain delivered a speech that repudiated the President, warned the Arizona Republican to “be careful” because at some point he will “fight back.”

McCain, while accepting the Liberty Medal in Philadelphia on Monday night, warned the United States against turning toward “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”

The speech was a repudiation of Trump, who the Arizona Republican has long feuded with, and the worldview that catapulted him to office.
Trump told Chris Plante of “The Chris Plante Show” on Tuesday that he heard the criticism and warned McCain to be careful.

“He was taking shots at you again yesterday,” Plante said. “You heard what he said yesterday, Sen. McCain?”

“Yeah, well I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back,” Trump said. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”

Responding to Trump’s threat, McCain bluntly told reporters Tuesday: “I’ve faced far greater challenges than this.”

McCain and Trump’s feud has dated back years, ever since the then-2016 candidate said the senator wasn’t a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.

“He is not a war hero,” Trump told pollster Frank Luntz in 2015.
“He is a war hero,” Luntz interjected.

“He is a war hero because he was captured,” Trump said, cutting him off. “I like people that weren’t captured, OK? I hate to tell you. He is a war hero because he was captured.”

The feud continued throughout the 2016 campaign, with McCain regularly faulting the Republican standard bearer for comments he made on the campaign trail. McCain withdrew his support for Trump when the “Access Hollywood” video was made public, showing the 2016 Republican nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women.

Both Trump and McCain won re-election, but their feud continued, with the Arizona senator casting a deciding vote against the Republican health care plan.

The act of defiance stung Trump.

“Sen. McCain, you mean the one who voted against Obamacare?” Trump asked, rhetorically, during a sweeping August news conference. “You mean Sen. McCain who voted against us getting good health care?”

This public back-and-forth contributed to McCain’s speech Monday, where he was honored by Democrats and Republicans alike for a lifetime of service. McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.

The Arizona senator and his party’s 2008 presidential nominee described that “half-baked, spurious nationalism” as “unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

I’m certain that Trump has a dossier on McCain as thick as a law book. McCain’s corruption, his womanizing, his treason in Vietnam–all of it just might leak.

Wouldn’t that be just too bad???!!!

North Vietnamese Propagandist John McCain: The Vietnam Tapes

Excerpt of McCain Vietnam propaganda broadcast:

Full tape. Two minutes:

According to Snopes McCain did not admit that he’s a war criminal and did not receive a pardon from President Nixon.

There’s a lot of critical writing about McCain on the Internet, too much to cite here. However, I enjoyed reading this piece on Zerohedge.

Excerpt:

It is well documented that McCain and his little buddy have armed and funded ISIS. Many pictures of them exist yucking it up with those who would do us harm. As if we didn’t have enough enemies already it seems we need more. All in the name of full spectrum dominance by our deep state uni-party.

Presently McCain is trying to force us into an unnecessary confrontation with the Russian federation. McCain also wants war with China, North Korea, Syria, Iran, and Ukraine. McCain seems to have no concern, compassion or remorse for the tens of thousands of deaths he has been responsible for. This madness has gotten out of hand. It has created an endless loop of more death, destruction, collateral damage, and rapefuges. Throw in some reconstruction projects for his cronies a little global insecurity and a dash of ignominy on our once highly esteemed fighting forces and it becomes clear why the whole world hates us.

McCain on Brain Cancer: “It’s a very poor prognosis.”

John McCain is trying to present himself as a honorable man as he faces his long (or short) good bye.

Most people are not so easily duped.

CNN

Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer is “very, very serious,” the Arizona Republican said in an interview Sunday night, adding that doctors told him “it’s a very poor prognosis.”

“So I just said, ‘I understand. Now we’re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived,'” he said on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

He recalled how he went back to Washington, against his doctors’ requests because it was only 11 days after his brain surgery, to vote on health care.

“I got very choked up,” McCain said, recalling the standing ovation he got on the Senate floor. “And then, of course, you know, all of them coming over and giving me a hug. It was deeply moving, I had never seen anything like that.”

A standing ovation? There is honor among thieves after all.

During the interview, McCain was asked whether his “no” vote on the Senate’s health care bill over the summer was to get back at President Donald Trump for saying he wasn’t a war hero during the campaign.

“If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short,” McCain responded. “You’ve got to move on. And on an issue of this importance to the nation, for me to worry about a personal relationship, then I’m not doing my job.”

And on Trump, McCain refused to say whether he believed he was unfit to be President, instead saying that he trusts the American people for voting for him.

“First of all, I believe in our system. The American people selected Donald Trump to be President of the United States. We have to respect that,” McCain said. “Second of all, he has a very strong national security team around him who I know has significant influence over him.”

When asked whether Trump ever apologized for saying he wasn’t a war hero, McCain said no. He also emphasized he and Trump are from different backgrounds.

“I’d be glad to converse with him. But I also understand that we’re very different people. Different upbringing. Different life experiences,” McCain said. “He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others. I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day.”

McCain should do the honorable thing and die sooner rather than later.

Repeal and Replace: Is “Hero” John McCain’s Obstructionism A Vendetta Against Trump

President Trump’s now viral characterization of Kim Jong Un as “Rocketman” or “Rocket Man” (not sure which is correct) could and should be followed up by nicknaming American Senator John McCain as “Crash” McCain. That’s because McCain has provided the crucial vote to prevent a GOP repeal and replace of Obamacare again. He CRASHED repeal and replace just like he did with his airplanes.

Trump isn’t remaining silent, but he’s not going to call dying McCain (whose tumorous forehead has a noticeable lump) by an offensive nickname. But you should remember the flareup that took place during the election campaign when Trump said McCain was not a hero.

Sneaky McCain didn’t say much in response then. But I think his black heart is carrying forward a vendetta against Trump for Trump’s accurate characterization of him.

President Trump on prospects for Obamacare repeal: “We’re going to do it eventually” https://t.co/UYpqI3w42L https://t.co/oT0NuebI8k

— CNN (@CNN) September 23, 2017

President Trump chided Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) late Friday for opposing a last-ditch plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, insisting the GOP would “eventually” roll back his predecessor’s signature health-care law.

Trump called McCain’s opposition “totally unexpected” and “terrible” during a campaign rally in Huntsville, Ala., where he stumped on behalf of Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) ahead of Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff against former judge Roy Moore.

“John McCain, if you look at his last campaign, it was all about repeal and replace, repeal and replace,” Trump told the crowd. “So he decided to do something different, and that’s fine.”

“We’re going to do it eventually,” Trump insisted of ObamaCare repeal efforts, adding Strange would help the GOP reach the goal.

Trump broadly chastised congressional Republicans for campaigning for seven years “saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace” and failing to deliver on the promise.

“They didn’t care, nobody cared, because they had a president who wasn’t going to sign it,” Trump said, referring to GOP votes to repeal ObamaCare under former President Barack Obama.

“So it didn’t take much courage,” he continued. “I think they voted, what 61 times? Sixty-one times to repeal and replace. They finally get a president who will sign the legislation and they don’t have the guts to vote for it.”

McCain was one of a few GOP senators watched closely ahead of a possible vote next week on the repeal legislation sponsored by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

McCain cast a deciding vote in late July killing a scaled-down ObamaCare repeal bill, joining Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) in voting against the bill.

The Arizona Republican announced Friday he would also vote against the latest repeal measure from Graham and Cassidy, which Republicans hoped to vote on next week ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for approving the bill on a majority vote.

“Songbird” McCain, so nicknamed because of his alleged treason while a North Vietnamese prisoner, is simply a liar and a phony conservative. He’s a moral degenerate.

For the good of the country, he can’t die soon enough.

John McCain backs new bill blocking Trump’s transgender troop ban

LOL! Without trannies, the U.S. can’t win a war!

McCain’s best buddy, Senator Lindsay Graham, is a butt boy. Does that make you suspicious of McCain?

The Independent

John McCain is joining a bipartisan push to block President Donald Trump from banning transgender people from serving in the military.

Mr Trump issued a moratorium last month instructing the military to stop providing gender reassignment surgeries for transgender troops, and to stop plans to recruit those troops. That decision came following an order from his predecessor that instructed the military to begin considering programmes to allow transgender people to serve openly and without worry in the military.

The moratorium quickly drew anger from people who questioned the necessity of blocking transgender people from serving.

“Any member of the military who meets the medical and readiness standards should be allowed to serve — including those who are transgender,” Mr McCain said in a statement.

Mr McCain joins several other senators in the effort to push through the legislation that would thwart Mr Trump’s plans to keep the transgender community out of the armed services. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, and Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, are also behind the effort.

“Thousands of brave transgender Americans love our country enough to risk their lives for it, fight for it, and even die for it, and Congress should honour them and let them serve,” Ms Gillibrand said in a statement. “Doing otherwise would only harm our readiness at a time when our military is deployed around the world in defence of our country.”

McCain isn’t dying fast enough. Let’s pray that he’s put out of his misery sooner rather than later.

After 50 Years of Lies and Cover Ups, It’s Time to Investigate Israel’s Dastardly Attack on the USS Liberty

The American Legion has called for a Congressional Inquiry into the attack on the USS Liberty 50 years ago. This excerpt explains why an investigation is needed.

Excerpt from Unz.com via Lew Rockwell

On June 8th 1967 the United States Navy intelligence ship the U.S.S. Liberty was attacked in international waters by aircraft and vessels belonging to Israel. Thirty-four sailors, Marines and civilians were killed in the attack. The deliberate Israeli air and sea onslaught sought to sink the clearly identified intelligence gathering ship and kill all its crew. It was in truth the worst attack ever carried out on a U.S. Naval vessel in peace time. In addition to the death toll, 171 more of the crew were wounded in the two-hour assault, which was clearly intended to destroy the intelligence gathering vessel operating in international waters collecting information on the ongoing fighting between Israel and its Arab neighbors. The Israelis, whose planes had their Star of David markings covered up so Egypt could be blamed, attacked the ship repeatedly from the air and with torpedo boats from the sea. When one Israeli pilot hesitated, refusing to attack what was clearly an American ship, he was instructed to proceed anyway.

Most Americans are completely unaware that a United States naval vessel was once deliberately targeted and nearly sunk by America’s “greatest friend and ally” Israel. The attack was followed by a comprehensive cover-up that demonstrated clearly that at least one president of the United States even back nearly fifty years ago valued his relationship with the state of Israel above his loyalty to his own country.

The most disgusting part of the tale relates to how U.S. warplanes sent to the Liberty’s aid from an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean were called back by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara acting under orders from President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who declared that he would rather see the ship go to the bottom of the sea than embarrass his good friend Israel. Ironically, the first ship to reach the foundering Liberty and offer assistance was from the Soviet Union, an offer that was declined.

The incredible courage and determination of the surviving crew was the only thing that kept the Liberty from sinking. The ship’s commanding officer Captain William McGonagle was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic role in keeping the ship afloat, though President Lyndon Baines Johnson broke with tradition and refused to hold the medal ceremony in the White House, also declining to award it personally, delegating that task to the Secretary of the Navy in a closed to the public presentation made at the Washington Navy Yard. The additional medals given to other crew members in the aftermath of the attack made the U.S.S. Liberty the most decorated ship based on a single engagement with hostile forces in the history of the United States Navy.

The cover-up of the attack began immediately. The Liberty crew was sworn to secrecy over the incident, as were the Naval dockyard workers in Malta, and even the men of the U.S.S. Davis, which had assisted the badly damaged Liberty to port were ordered to be silent. A hastily convened and conducted court of inquiry ordered by Admiral John McCain interviewed only a few crewmen and did not seek to determine what had actually happened, instead, acting under orders from Washington, it moved quickly to declare the attack a case of mistaken identity. The inquiry’s senior legal counsel Captain Ward Boston, who subsequently declared the attack to be a “deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew,” also revealed that Admiral Isaac Kidd, who presided over the inquiry, had told him that “President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordered him [Kidd] to conclude that the attack was a case of ‘mistaken identity’ despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.” The court’s findings were rewritten and sections relating to Israeli war crimes, to include the machine gunning of life rafts, were excised.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Senator John McCain of Arizona has used his position on the Senate Armed Services Committee to effectively block any reconvening of a board of inquiry to re-examine the evidence. The documents relating to the Liberty incident from the White House perspective of McNamara and Johnson, if they have not been destroyed, have never been released to the public in spite of the 50 years that have passed since the attack took place.

In retrospect, one might well have expected little better from the likes of Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara and either Admiral John McCain or his son, but the cover-up that has endured for fifty years involving the national media as well as politicians from both parties is perhaps even more disgraceful because it has established the principle that even when Israel targets and kills American military personnel it will never ever be held accountable. Such is the power of the Israel Lobby in the United States.

This excerpt is less than half the article. The rest of it goes on to describe the American Legion’s participation in the cover up.
