It was a little while ago that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was awarded the Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The Liberty Medal is given to those who have “secured the blessings of personal liberty to people the world over.” In the speech, McCain spoke brashly about the current President.
It is beyond alarming that this particular award was given to a Senator who has constantly ignored the damage done to civil liberties in the search for “national security.” Sen. McCain has never worried about past conflicts started without Congressional approval, not at least until Donald Trump became President. Now, he is suddenly concerned about reckless behavior overseas.
The speech was nothing more than cheap Trump bashing by the ultimate RINO. McCain talked of abandoning the “ideals we have advanced around the globe” but neglects to mention embracing the gangs of thugs in the Middle East from Saudi Arabia, to Libya, and even as far back as Kosovo.
McCain supports the Yemen debacle that has led to war crimes and disasters to the people of the poverty stricken country. The foreign policy that has been developed by this senator has led to unnecessary wars throughout the world, making him unqualified to lecture Trump in any way.
Of course, McCain clothes his disastrous policies up in patriotism and freedom, values that disappear with the dust hanging heavily from the bombings over the areas like a evil cloud. While McCain spiels of “half baked nationalism,” he continues to push an interventionism that is at best irresponsible and at worst criminal. He is complaining that resources will be spent at home for the people instead on globalists abroad.
On the domestic front, McCain has clearly turned his back on the American people. Calling President Trump “poorly informed” and “impulsive,” McCain has turned against the Wall and instead wants a “comprehensive” immigration bill that the progressive and socialist Democrats and other RINOS can rally around. This was the same man who called “ANTIFA” and “Black Lives Matter” true Americans after Charlottesville.
After the incident in Charlottesville, McCain tweeted, “There’s no moral equivalency between racists and Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”
Does this man not know that the main agenda of ANTIFA is to literally make American ungovernable? Perhaps that is what the globalists such as McCain really want, to make America ungovernable. And isn’t this the same old man who called the Tea Party “wacko birds” because they wanted to control spending and lower taxes? That right there should explain whose side McCain really is on.
The Trump dossier is another sticking point that McCain has yet to explain. Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive that was named in the dossier is claimed to have been recruited by the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency. The question that is at the forefront of this situation is who gave the dossier to Buzzfeed to publish.
According to Evan Fray-Witzer, Gubarev’s lawyer claimed that Buzzfeed asked Fusion GPS for the dossier and were refused, so how did they get it? McCain and a former official at the McCain Institute were told about the dossier and took the effort to procure it. There are no answers forthcoming and even the Congressional committees are at a stalemate because Fusion GPS has pleaded the fifth.
McCain has been given leeway because he was a war hero from the same Vietnam War that I and many others have also fought. The damage done to this country, to the military and the psyche of the conflict will never be over for many of us. Those who fought and died there on the whole did their part for a country that they loved, but McCain’s heroism has come into question in recent years.
On March 25th, 1999, two of McCain fellow POW’s, Ted Guy and Gordon Larson told the Phoenix New Times that they doubted McCain was physically harmed. Upon his transfer to the Hanoi Hilton and by his own account, McCain cracked after two or three days. McCain promised the Vietnamese military information if they would take him to the hospital where he denies that he received any special medical treatment.
In the first two weeks in the hospital, the Hanoi government started issuing press releases and announcements from John McCain. McCain allegedly divulged specific military information and intelligence including the location of his carrier and pertinent information on the strength, numbers and even the location of rescue boats coming to save American POWs.
The information about routes of incoming American aircraft helped the Hanoi government to increase the effectiveness of their air defense systems. Included in the information was altitude, direction and a list of targets that the American aircraft were intending to hit. This led to an increase of 60 percent more aircraft lost, ultimately resulting in calling off the bombing of North Vietnam.
Former U.S. Senate Chief of Staff, Dr. James Lucier admitted the obvious by saying, “We did know that when he was in the Vietnamese prison he co-operated with the communist news services in giving interviews that were not flattering to the United States.”
Information shows that he made over 32 tapes of propaganda for the North Vietnamese government. The Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain and the U.S. Veteran Dispatch continue to investigate and expose the real “war hero” John McCain. The truth, long hidden by the government and the military higher ups, will eventually come out. Even though McCain has passed legislation to classify his records forever, it will be soon be clear that this man is not only a phony Republican, but a phony America hero.
