McCain, Truth or Consequences

Updated on March 12, 2017


It shouldn’t come as no surprise that McCain is out to get Trump. After all he is still mad about Trumps comments,

“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

“I think John McCain’s done very little for the veterans. I’m very disappointed in John McCain.”

“…yet another all talk, no action politician who spends too much time on television and not enough time doing his job.”

But you know, when two kids are shouting at each other on the playground you let them shout as long as they’re not shooting each other or stabbing each other or dragging a nation down with them…let them argue.

Let them duke it out with words and have a grand ole’ time doing it. I mean, after all, now that Schwarzenegger isn’t around to still McCain’s spotlight he has amble opportunity to speak out and not have his comments whisked aside by Arnolds remarks.

McCain should grab the bull by the horns and say what’s on his mind and what will appeal to the Democratic voters to show them that he is a stand up kind of guy, someone they can rely on to take a stand, even if it’s his party he is standing against.

And of course the Media is eating up.

McCain said,

“The president has one of two choices, either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve.”

What is so news worthy about that? Many others have said close the same thing, although not using the same words, but he is the getting the press.

It’s the feud, dude.

But I have news for McCain, President Trump has been providing information that the American people deserve to hear since he started his campaign. The information is something called the truth. I know, that is an unknown element in DC and to the Media and maybe even to McCain. He is lost in the quagmire of politics.

McCain used to be a guy that shot accurately from the hip. He didn’t care what others thought as long as he was speaking the truth. Sound familiar? Now he plays politics and understands that if he wants something he has to be willing to give something back. The truth plays second fiddle to that rule.

You can’t blame McCain though. He is just one of the countless victims that Washington ate alive.

      Here is what you need to know about John McCain

      And don't forget the aircraft malaise he caused in 1967. The "war hero" McCain crashed 5 jets, plus was responsible for the Forrestal fire. Something made the plane behind McCain fire a rocket, which hit McCain's external center fuel tank, and caused a fire. McCain panicked, and dropped two bombs into the fire.

      Surviving crewmen of the USS Forestal and those who investigated the Forrestal fire case reported that McCain deliberately 'wet-started' his A-4E Skyhawk to shake up the guy in the F-4 Phantom behind his plane.

      'Wet-starts', done either deliberately (the starter motor switch allowed kerosene to pool in the engine and give a wet start) or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft.'Wet starting' was a common practice among young 'hot-dog' pilots.

      In McCain's case, the 'wet-start''cooked off' and launched the M34 Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that punctured the Skyhawk's fueltank, knocked the M-65 1000 lb bomb off it's 500 lb rated mount, and touched off the explosions and massive fire.

      When the carrier Oriskany came along side, and McCain was put in a chopper and whisked away. McCain was the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred .I have a hunch McCain left for his own safety, because the crew wanted blood.

      A naval officer in Viet Nam said that McCain had his afterburner on without the blast shield up and ignited the plane behind him. This was covered up because his father commanded the Pacific fleet. He was immediately transferred off the Forrestal. 134 dead, 161 injured.

      He was a goof off in high school and at the academy, finished at the bottom of his class destroying 3 airplanes and his record in the navy was such that he saw no opportunity to advance to the admiralty and chose politics instead.

      Given his history I think McCain would have made an excellent Democrat.

      But I guess they were more interested in courting politicians who were active in the Klan to run for the democrat party like Robert Byrd, Hugo Black, Theodore G. Bilbo, Bibb Graves, Clifford Walker, George Gordon, John Brown Gordon, John Clinton Porter, Benjamin F. Stapleton, and alleged member of the Klan, Harry Truman.

      You really lead a sheltered life Cochran - the New York Times reported that Obama was tapping Trump weeks before Trump said it

      I know your sources are left wing rags - guess you missed this one.

      Good take on McCain. After his history of often bowing to the media, advocating amnesty for illegals in 2006 when McCain co-sponsored the bipartisan McCain-Kennedy immigration bill (also supported by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama) I am still wondering why he is a Republican.
