John McCain has betrayed Americans over and over again…

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. — General Douglas MacArthur

No intelligent man ever trusted a traitor.– Marcus Tullius Cicero

Why isn’t the Republican party unifying behind their president? The Democrats unify no matter what, they all stick together as they did for Clinton and Obama, but the Republicans, every time they have a chance to succeed, they squander a great opportunity to demonstrate the difference between them and the commie left.  They continually disappoint the American people.

Now, with the announcement of John McCain’s serious brain cancer, many people commented that they were glad to hear it.  Personally, I wouldn’t wish this form of cancer on my worst enemy, and said we should pray that John McCain would have a “come to Jesus” moment before he succumbs to this illness. 

The treachery of Collins, McCain and Murkowski

After the Senator’s betrayal with the last Obamacare repeal vote, praying for him will dwindle to a few.  Americans are angry, and not just with McCain, whose conservative vote rating is 49%, but also with Alaska’s Murkowski who gets a 65.1% conservative rating, and Maine’s Collins who joined in a no vote. Senator Collins is a self-proclaimed moderate and gets a 46.3% conservative rating.

Collins tied herself to Planned Parenthood.  She thought the salvation of the abortion provider was more important than cost-effective health insurance provided in a free market for all Americans.  Link  This pro-abortion Senator did not vote for Trump. 

McCain’s no vote defeated the bill that would have defunded Planned Parenthood and saved the baby humans. 

McCain and Murkowski pledged repeatedly to repeal Obamacare when running for re-election, whereas Sen. Collins consistently voted against any Obamacare repeal proposed by the Senate. And they call themselves Republicans!

McCain’s Betrayal

The man has a brain cancer that will probably kill him.  We saw in his questioning of James Comey where McCain’s questions were not understandable and he actually called Comey, President Comey.  Link

Remember Comey allowed Hillary to walk free.  And John McCain is not only a friend of Hillary Clinton’s, but he is also an amnesty lover just as she is and always has been.  Their reasoning is clear, abortion has murdered 60 million American children, and we are replacing them with Democrat voters who are Mexicans and Muslims.  McCain said Hillary was a great Secretary of State, “I think Hillary did a fine job, she’s a rock star.” 

Back in early June, McCain told a left-leaning overseas newspaper that Barack Obama provided better leadership for America than Trump.  Call him what he is, a Benedict Arnold, and a snake. 

Remember, this is the guy who sent a courier to Great Britain to get that phony Trump dossier and then gave it to Comey, when everyone in DC knew it was a made-up pile of dung and wouldn’t touch it.

McCain has betrayed Americans over and over again, and there’s a long list of former Viet Nam POWs who are not at all pleased with McCain.  But this betrayal of a no vote on repealing Obamacare, when he campaigned to repeal it, is a slap in the face of our President.  McCain took pleasure in joining with Democrats to screw the American taxpayers.  He broke seven years of promises, he’s a liar and a hypocrite.  McCain greeted Democrats with big smiles and issued hugs to Senators Chuck Schumer and Diane Feinstein.

It was also widely reported that McCain laughingly told democrats, “Let’s see Donald make America great again now.”  We have no actual proof that he said those words, but McCain has an evil and vindictive mean streak and there are many who will testify to same.

Trump Threatens to End Insurance Bailouts

Trump previously tweeted, “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”  Link

When Obamacare was passed, the Congressional staffers were appalled when they found out they couldn’t afford it.  Of course, what it meant for everyday Americans never entered their tiny brains. 

After enough of their screaming, they were effectively subsidized 70% of the premiums so they could afford it. Obama wrote an executive order for these subsidies. 

Government, in other words, is paying for Senate and congressional staffers’ health care and members of the House and Senate. They are under Obamacare but heavily subsidized.  In other words, they are subsidized at the same rate as people who can’t afford it.  Link  I’m with Trump, eliminate their bailouts.

Soros and the McCain Institute

In 2008, Jerome Corsi reported that McCain had been funded by Soros since 2001. 

Like H.R. McMaster, McCain is closely tied to George Soros. They reportedly became friends after the senator was exposed as a member of the “Keating Five political scandal” during the Savings and Loan industry scandal during former President George H. W. Bush’s administration. As the bank chairman, Charles Keating paid $1.3 million to bribe five members of Congress to interfere with government regulators on behalf of the savings bank.  McCain was one of the most reprehensible in this scandal, and the American taxpayers had to again pick up the bill.

Then, in 2012 McCain turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.  It is a tax exempt non-profit foundation with assets just over $8 million and associated with Arizona State University.

The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly, but this is just one of many questionable donations.  Link  Link

The McCain Foundation bears a striking resemblance to the corrupt Clinton family Foundation, including funds accepted from Soros.  Link  The Institute is now refusing to release the names of other big donors.

Graham, Rubio, McCain and Benghazi

Back in 2005 Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi had dismantled his WMD program and was lauded by the international community. Thus, relations between Libya and the US were improving. However, in 2011, Rubio hoped to polish his foreign policy credentials for an eventual president campaign, and so he thoroughly backed Hillary Clinton’s War on Libya. Following the murder of Gaddafi, Rubio, McCain and Graham celebrated with the rebels they helped to arm, just a year before these rebels attacked the embassy in Benghazi. We know the rest of the story.

The Senator’s Unsavory Past

Okay, people…before John McCain dies and the ridiculous “tributes” to the man make me wretch, let’s remember what McCain’s real legacy is: His father was the Admiral in charge of the Pacific fleet prosecuting the war in Vietnam Nam.

His captors called him “Songbird McCain” allegedly because he spilled his guts about everything so he wouldn’t be tortured in the POW camp in Nam.  He made propaganda films for the Communists.  Did you know Nixon pardoned him for collaborating with the enemy?

In his memoir Faith of My Fathers, McCain admitted to being a lousy midshipman at the naval academy and a flier who lost four or five planes. (The time he decided to hug the ground in Spain for the hell of it and flew into some power lines the plane may have survived–it’s not clear from his account.) And when he was captured he caved under torture. He concedes other POWs performed better.  The following links reveal far more.

The Real John McCain Vietnam Story

John McCain is No Hero

Neither a Good Man, Nor a Public Servant

Betrayal of America’s Missing POWs

McCain fought against the release of classified Vietnam POW records and insisted they be sealed.  He and John Kerry buried the evidence. He also voted against a Senate Select Committee recommendation to investigate possible POWs left behind that were classified as MIAs.  He agreed with the lazy DOD at time who did not want the workload of investigating this possibility. Soldiers who had died were never brought home, and American prisoners of war died in captivity because of John McCain.  You can add Henry Kissinger to this atrocity.  Watch the stunning short video…

McCain purposely suppressed information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam.  Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus, the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books. 

Jerome Corsi reported that this POW case haunted and helped destroy McCain’s image as a war hero.  Read the mass of evidence of our men left behind by this Senator.

Could it be that McCain, nicknamed “Songbird” by other fellow POWs did not want people to see his own records?  TRUMP was absolutely right about him.  Now, because of McCain’s positions, Trump needs to find a way to release the sealed POW documents, and bring those men home.

McCain and Gang of Eight Amnesty

McCain wants Congress to pass the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill when he returns to the Senate after getting treatments for brain cancer.   He reportedly spoke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer about joining forces again to pass the “Gang of Eight” bill.  This is a massive amnesty bill, totally anathema to Trump’s policies.

The bill would give a path to citizenship to most illegal immigrants.  It would greatly increase the number of H-1B visas to allow companies to displace American workers, U.S. born and legal immigrants, with foreigners who are not more qualified. It would also greatly increase the number of legal immigrants who would be eligible to enter the country over the next 30 years to put more downward pressure on wages on blue-collar and white-collar workers of all backgrounds already in the United States.  All of which American workers DO NOT NEED, and Trump campaigned against.

McCain worked with leftists from both sides of the aisle, Schumer, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, Dick Durbin, Bob Menendez and Michael Bennet, on the “Gang of Eight” bill, which was introduced in 2013. 

Remember Trump’s poem, “The Snake?”  This poem superbly exposes the dangers of McCain and his Gang of Eight amnesty.

Conclusion

Before the phony tearful tributes to John McCain, like those of Ted Kennedy, be sure you remember the facts about this self-proclaimed Maverick. The facts do not agree with that portrait of a heroic patriot and great American.  He even has dissed his former running mate, Sarah Palin.

With respect to his family, John McCain was never the great man so many portray him to be.

I do not wish the man any harm or ill-will. Yet, the false narratives of his valor and service are just that…false.  He is a modern day Benedict Arnold, and he will face his eternal fate.
