    Default John McCain Dead

    I wish I could say I am sad at his passing. I am not. He had become a sterile demented old man who did more harm than good to the Republic.....

    He wanted acceptance from a group that would not accept him and turned his back on the group that would have if he just stood his ground. If I recall correctly he was dangerous conservative when he ran for president. Never saw him as that, he was a moderate that leaned to far to the left for me.

    " Not one single Navy officer who served with him. Not one single POW
    from any service who was with him in the Hanoi Hilton. The crap we are fed
    from the mainstream media." "Apparently, there were a few who understood Mr. McCain somewhat better than the rest of us.









    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 matte r 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.

    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 he that voted AGAINST. A “war hero” McCain III 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 three 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 relight 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 an d 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."

    With all this bull$hit coverage by the whore media you'd think it was George Washington's funeral.

    Having never seen combat or spent a day in a NV POW camp, I'm not so quick to disparage his military time regardless of any personality traits that grind on some who may have known him - actually it was an early Trumpism that turned me off seeing a non-military, non-POW, never seen combat person refer to POWs as losers or whatever terminology he used at the time. Plenty of political issues to pick McCain apart on like running as tough on illegal immigration then rallying the senate for an amnesty after he was re-elected, campaign ads touting himself as "leading the fight to repeal Obamacare" then voting to keep it in place, or railing against pork spending while repeatedly voting for deficit budgets ladened with pork. I see him as two people - a POW who was literally broken by his captors and the monster most politicians become who betrayed the people who made it possible for him to join the ruling class.

    Plenty worn out of the death/funeral coverage; Seems like less was made of Reagan's passing and there is no comparison as to who was a better supporter of the constitution and the forgotten man.

    Would make for an interesting alternate scenario - if McCain had been a Trump cheerleader and publicly rallied his fellow senators to repeal Obamacare, start construction of a border wall, etc.... would the media elites be praising him so and offering 24 hr week long coverage?
