As WAR HERO McCain was a fraud, something the American propaganda spin masters over the years dreamed up. Lets tell the truth, the reason McCain was a prisoner in Vietnam, he was a reckless and terrible pilot. Prior to being shot down,McCain had crashed three separate times. Being a prisoner most likely shaved his life by keeping him from combat duty. The only admirable thing McCain ever did in his life was as a prisoner, after which he spent the rest of his life atoning for that act of goodness.

Quite ironic that for political expediency it was McCain that had voted to implement Trumps first 'health care bill' that would have knocked 26 million Americans off health care coverage, a decision that would refuse health care care to other Americans perhaps suffering from brain cancer. That in addition to the over 20 million Americans who were already not covered in Republican governed states who refused Obamas Federal health care money.

At least McCain a very wealthy man, is covered under a government health care program ,something he voted to deny his fellow citizens as a law maker.

McCain never saw a war he didn't like. He cheer-leaded America into the illegal war in Iraq that as of today has killed over a million civilians. He was front center in the Ukraine as the CIA topled the democratically elected government and plunged that country into civil war.

McCain as a Republican senator was part in parcel of George W Bush and Dick Cheney war crimes abroad ,while at home during the Bush years denying 50 million Americans health care, fully aware statistics were there telling him each year as a result of decisions he endorsed on average 45 thousand uninsured Americans would die needlessly of treatable illness.

As a politician McCain refused to accept Martin Luther King day in Arizona until the press shamed him into accepting it.

Finally McCain gets to pay for his criminality in a dozens of US conflicts world wide that as a senator he endorsed. Dozens of conflicts in which millions of innocent people died. I have no best wishes for John McCain. There'll be no heaven for John McCain.

OBVIOUSLY nationalism overrides common sense in liberal land. Seems everybody is afraid to raise their heads in fear of being called unpatriotic.

TODAY July 25th 2017

With Vice President Mike Pence presiding over the chamber in his duty as president of the Senate, the chamber voted 51-50 to proceed with the legislation. The initial tie vote placed the responsibility for whether or not to move forward with the legislation on the shoulders of Pence, who cast the tie-breaking vote to proceed.

"All 48 Senate Democrats were present and cast their votes in opposition to proceeding. Only two Republicans – Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) — abandoned their caucus to vote “no.”

The vote was held open with only 48 senators voting to proceed before Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, entered the chamber and voted “yes,” followed by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). Senators on both sides of the aisle applauded McCain as he entered the chamber before he gave a thumbs up to indicate support for the motion to proceed."

IN effect McCain a wealthy man , has just denied sick and dying Americans the same health care coverage he's receiving. Even facing the thought of meeting his maker, McCain showed the world he puts 'party' before COUNTRY and couldn't give a damn about his fellow Americans.

Stats tell us todays decision will result in almost a half a million America needless deaths over the next eight to ten years as a result of a vote McCain could have stopped. John McCain just aided and abetted the mass murder of his own countrymen by the cult of right wing fanaticism.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
