The concept of illegitimacy brings us to John McCain. I’ve made no secrecy of the fact that I find John McCain to be one of the phoniest Americans alive. If he would just admit he’s a Democrat, I might find an inkling of respect in the vomitus Olympic-sized pool of dislike I have for this man. As a senator, he fought harder against President George W. Bush, as Bush was prosecuting the War on Terror, than he did against President Obama. This is the case, even as Obama has been doing everything he can to fill the vacuum in the Middle East with the radical jihadist remnants of al Qaeda on the one hand, while rebuilding the Empire of Iran on the other.
If McCain were actually honorable, he would have recused himself from the discussion about whether “enhanced interrogation methods” were torture or not. These methods are nothing like the torture methods of the godless Commie VC that kept McCain a POW for all those years. His assertion that our methods were torture and thus useless in gathering information served only to boost his own reputation. Were he to actually admit that these methods could be successful, as they actually have been proven to be, he was obviously afraid that he might be admitting that the torture he received led to his giving up pertinent information to the America’s enemies. An honorable man would have recused himself from the discussion because he had a conflict of interest. But McCain is all about McCain, so he had to be a part of the conversation.
As a result of his incessant prattling, Obama has garnered enough sympathy for the terrorists in Club Gitmo that he’s released so many of them back onto the field of war where some did indeed kill more Americans. As well, we no longer take hostages from whom we can gather information. Instead, they’re killed with drone strikes, thus making them useless casualties of war rather than intelligence assets. Thanks John McCain, now we’re losing the war. Oh wait. We lost it. Now we’re aiding the victors. But for someone obsessed with the idea of incessant war, that’s just an obstacle that can be overcome with the call for more war. And McCain’s always there to make that call.
Now, I’m not against war. I’m just against wars that we force ourselves to lose. We have so much ability to destroy our enemies, yet we barely harm them before we rebuild what we destroyed. What a waste. The enemies of America need to be pounded into submission until every last one of them is drooling to death while begging for mercy. Look at the Japanese. It only took a couple of mushroom clouds, and they turned into docile little un-reproductive lambs that would rather have sex with a robot than a woman. Problem solved.

So when Donald Trump poked McCain in the eye, I was cheering. We all know that Trump was thinking two steps ahead of all his critics. He knew what he was saying, and he knew what he was about to tell the critics as soon as they started chirping. Sure, McCain is the liberals’ favorite Republican, but when he was running for president, they said many things much worse than what Donald Trump said.
By the way, it must be remembered that Trump hit McCain after McCain called the 15,000 Arizonians that showed up to Trump’s speech “Crazies.” He was calling Americans that want their border secured from the invasion “crazies.” The gutless McCainiacs and the liberals who fear Trump’s ascension and the damage it will do the ruling-class monopoly on the levers of government jumped into action like a bunch of school kids after the Trump piñata was smashed, sending scads of Chinese candy all over the place.
And now that Trump has picked that scab, those things are back in the news.
Along with then Senator John Kerry, John McCain succeeded at burying the evidence that the Vietnamese still had perhaps hundreds of POWs. This story is long and insightful, but it’s pretty much incontrovertible. John McCain fought to hide the truth of what happened to hundreds of unaccounted for POWs, and when their families begged him to stop, he yelled at them and made some of them cry. His temper is legendary, and he saved some of the best explosions for the families of POWs. That’s not honorable.
Nor is the fact that it was John McCain who wouldn’t accept an amendment that would arm troops on American military installations before the recent Chattanooga attack. Those were the best well unarmed sitting ducks that John McCain allowed Obama to offer to his Muslim buddies. Despicable.
And now, according to Allen West, the US Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White for returning fire from his own weapon when the Muslim came to the recruitment center to kill unarmed US military members in Chattanooga. Not only is it partially McCain’s fault that they were unarmed, now one of them is being charged for returning fire while under attack from an invading enemy combatant. Update: the Navy has said it is still investigating and not definitively bringing charges, but charges have not been ruled out.
In regards to burying the POW information, maybe McCain was trying to hide something that he knew those POWs might know. There are plenty of people who say that McCain “sang like a canary” when he was at the Hanoi Hilton. Here’s a Bing search of the words McCain and canary. I don’t know what’s true, and I’m willing to give the guy the benefit of doubt. However, nothing he’s done as senator makes me feel like he deserves it. It’s easier just to criticize what he’s done in Congress- that’s all anyone needs to know.
In responding to criticism regarding his comments on McCain, Donald Trump wrote an op-ed titled: “I don’t need to be lectured- McCain has abandoned our veterans. I will fight for them.” Here’s a bit of what he says in response:
Thanks to McCain and his Senate colleague Bernie Sanders, their legislation to cover up the VA scandal, in which 1,000+ veterans died waiting for medical care, made sure no one has been punished, charged, jailed, fined or held responsible. McCain has abandoned our veterans. I will fight for them.
The reality is that John McCain the politician has made America less safe, sent our brave soldiers into wrong-headed foreign adventures, covered up for President Obama with the VA scandal and has spent most of his time in the Senate pushing amnesty. He would rather protect the Iraqi border than Arizona’s. He even voted for the Iran Nuclear Review Act of 2015, which allows Obama, who McCain lost to in a record defeat, to push his dangerous Iran nuclear agreement through the Senate without a supermajority of votes.
A number of my competitors for the Republican nomination have no business running for president. I do not need to be lectured by any of them. Many are failed politicians or people who would be unable to succeed in the private sector. Some, however, I have great respect for.
My record of veteran support is well-documented. I served as co-chairman of the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial Commission and was responsible, with a small group, for getting it built. Toward this end, I contributed over $1 million so our warriors can be honored in New York City with a proper memorial. I also helped finance and served as the grand marshal of the 1995 Nation’s Day Parade, which honored over 25,000 veterans. It was one of the biggest parades in the history of New York City, and I was very proud to have made it possible.
Trump’s not afraid to put America’s plutocrats in their place, and McCain needs to be put in his place. If you read the links, you’ll discover that McCain apparently even made a propaganda video for the enemy. And even though he wrote that he felt ashamed of this in his memoir, I’ll still give him the benefit of doubt. Maybe the memoir was edited by someone who hates McCain, and lord knows there are plenty of people in that group. But, like I said, he had no business being a part of the conversation regarding President Bush’s treatment of captured enemy combatants who were subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques.
Bottom line, Trump is the kind of leader America needs. One that isn’t kowtowed by the dill weeds that run the world as a fiefdom. This nation was founded as a free nation whose government was to be of the people, by the people and for the people. The rest of the world should get in line and follow our lead to their own freedom, or they should scrub rocks until they do. It’s not our job to adjust to them and accommodate their own degeneracy. If we’re not leading, they’re not following, and that’s what is happening under the Democrats and the feckless Republican weasels who enable them. McCain’s a weasel. The only smart thing he ever did was pick Sarah Palin to ensure he’d get over 40% of the vote when he ran for president.
