The Fame Whore That Is Senator John MCcain….

Updated on February 22, 2017


The Fame Whore That Is Senator John MCcain….

I write this blog with ambivalence, knowing that my beloved father, like Senator MCcain, is also a Vietnam veteran - but with all the goodwill that the Arizona Senator has garnered all these years for his valued service to God and country in that war theatre, it is apparently not enough… and so every chance that Senator MCcain gets, he continues to take on the personality of a ‘fame whore,’ akin to the fading, vainglorious, Hollywood stars who summon the Paparazzi to let them know where they are going to be... so as to prolong the ‘fading shine,’ which accompanies the fickle, jagged walk of fame/shame.

This ‘fame whoring’ on the part of Senator MCcain was on full display last week in Europe when he told the media that President Trump’s administration was in disarray. The fact is that the sapling Trump administration may indeed be going through the necessary growing pains, but for a fellow Republican to do so on foreign grounds was beyond the pale and tantamount to being traitorous. I understand that Senator MCcain had a failed run to be the Commander-In-Chief and like Governor Kasich of Ohio, Governor Romney, and Senator Lindsey Graham, all of whom represent the old order and the Globalists, and all hate President Trump for succeeding where they could not!

My beef with the senior senator of Arizona stems initially from his take on Enhanced Interrogation, better known as Water-boarding; and on this issue, Senator MCcain speaks in absolutes, in that he opines that torture ‘never’ works. As I have written here and elsewhere, torture may not work on the good senator, but it might work on others - this is so because some of our cloak and dagger operatives supposedly carry on their person cyanide pills, so that they may take their respective lives, so not to betray other operatives in the field, if they were to be captured. Senator MCcain comes off as though, that because he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, that his opinion, though respected, on the subject matter, is the Gospel. Incidentally, Senator McCain is like Representative John Lewis of Georgia, who thinks that because he marched with Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., that he can get away with anything, as if Mr. Lewis is the second coming of the Christ! By the way, do forgive me for my secular blasphemy!

Make no mistake, Senator McCain, like most of the Democrats, is fervently trying to undermine President Trump’s administration… McCain’s tactics might appear measured and subtle, but his subtleties are conspicuous and cancerous and undermine President Trump’s efforts to change the venal status quo in Washington. If I recalled correctly, Senator McCain, among many, was noising his objections to those celebrities who ignorantly spoke out against President Bush, the younger, on foreign grounds. Case in point, the country group, TheDixie Chicks - criticized President Bush, the younger, on his prosecution of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - somewhere in Europe and since then TheDixie Chicks lost much of their fame and they were never the same, as far as record sales and popularity go. Likewise, I can only hope that this is Senator McCain’s final stint as the Senior Senator of Arizona -- because treachery, be it subtle or overtly conspicuous, is still treachery!

Like George Soros, Senator McCain should be deemed “A Clear and Present Danger” to the interests of those of us who want the fetid swamps drained in Washington. But in addition, I too also understand the concept of a ‘death grip,’ and so what you are witnessing going on in America/Europe - in the form of riots, marches, and the pathetic ‘cry-rooms’ and the other pusillanimous amenities provided on many of our college campuses - is the Globalists’ ‘death-grip,’ who are desperately trying to hold on to fading venal power….

To Senator McCain, it is a privilege to represent the good people and the State of Arizona - however, it is not your birthright; and in Senator MCcain’s specious efforts, supposedly “to stand out” from the rest of his colleagues, we know that it is not borne of ideological/religious conviction, but of his growing personality as a ‘fame whore’ to please the Globalists and their elitist, corrupt agenda. For once, Senator McCain, think of the America you served in Vietnam… but know also that because you valiantly served… do not make your ‘positions’ dispositive on all the important issues of the day. I end by saying that on behalf of President Trump and those of us who represent power to the people (Plebeians) - Et Tu, Senator McCain?!

I have used the instrumental Jazz number - Mo Better Blues - to help flesh out the themes of this blog; anyone who has seen this movie is privy to the treachery that occurred between the two main characters in this classic movie… so drill down and enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1VREP-5Rg8&list=RDQ1VREP-5Rg8#t=0

      Thanks for the assist - the wife and I have a new born and it was after three in the morning; however, I thought that the gentleman was saying that some animals engage in same sex behavior, as if to justify homosexuality...

      VP, you didn't directly address his point. He said "In the animal world or human world did Jesus not condone same sex relationships?"

      The answer is Jesus did not condone same sex relationships anywhere, animal or human. That is a false statement straight from the pit of hell and there is absolutely no evidence or way to support such a statement and tons of evidence to the contrary starting with humans and animals live in a fallen world.Nothing is as it should be.

      Typical liberal tactic, propose a lie as the truth and argue it.

      Now, I could answer you by saying that the same demonic spirit that influenced humans to engage in such an unnatural behavior affected the animals too because how else did the latter multiply... but for me that is of no moral import/consequence, I simply believe what the Bible says about that behavior - among many. Go and read Romans chapter 1 and see what the Lord gave His conduit, the Apostle Paul, as the reason why that unnatural behavior came about, even if some animals engage in said behavior too. Incidentally, there are animals who eat their young too - I suppose that human children (Neonates) are par for the course too for parents, which makes it ok since we are emulating some of the animals that do this....?

      In the animal world or human world did Jesus not condone same sex relationships? I am basically a political writer here on HP and Religion is your passion. You made a political judgement about Senator McCain, I know politics and you know the bible. Let's talk politics which is true or false.

      Jesus was Liberal... deemed so as to justify what we do against his tenets. Jesus says that if I look at a married woman with lust... it is a sin, which means that I was thinking of sex when I looked at her and note that it is between a man and a woman, notwithstanding that she is married... so how could this same Jesus condone same sex relationships?

      Your Grand Mothers and my Grand Mothers taught their children and grand children not to steal while being the victims of that sin. Your stance whether you know it or not is Conservative and Jesus stance was Liberal. Republicans and Democrats are just we the people that are liberal in some cases and conservative in others.

      Sir, where I am from, my grandmother raised me to call everyone sir or ma'am - I meant no slight.... Governor Romney was a Republican, I did not vote for him nor could I ever vote for a Democrat with the latter's current platform. As far Conservative ideology making the Bible anti gay; anti abortion; and anti minority... I do not need Conservatives to tell me what is or not condone in the Bible. My Christian grandma told me not to steal - was she anti thief or she also told me not to have sex before marriage - not that I waited - but was she anti fornicator too? Killing babies, having sex before marriage, and same sex relations for me will always be morally wrong, even if I were to engage in those behaviors... this is so because all those behaviors are against the teachings of Christ Jesus! Incidentally, anti minority?

      Christianity? What has Christianity got to do with a Fame Whore? Conservative Ideology embrace anti abortion rights, anti-gay rights and anti-minority right base on the Bible to bring Evangelicalism under the conservative tent. What we are talking about has nothing to do with religion. You referred to me as Sir, your patience is getting short,so you claim religious freedom. I'll stand down. Have a good day my good man.

      Sir, I write within the confines of my Christianity - if President Trump does anything contrary to my beliefs... I would do the same. Incidentally, I support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, notwithstanding the fact that I voted for President Trump. And yes, there are those of us who could make a cogent argument that ISIS was indirectly started by President Obama because of his political indolence in the hard fought territory (Iraq) during those vicious battles in that particular war theatre.

      When The President said that President Bush lied about Iraqi war and all the President's men and women knew it at the time, was he being Patriotic? When President Trump said on American soil That President Obama was not American and that ISIS was created by The President was that Patriotic? We need more of the MCcainery to save America and the Constitution, Martial Law Trump's The Constitution

      As I have said, if I recalled correctly, the senator was very critical then of those celebrities who were speaking out against the Iraqi war on foreign soil, like the Dixie Chicks... yet he did the same to President Trump in Europe.

      The truth is known in the world and Europe and when spoken, all lies die. My agreement with the Senator stems from the way he handled that hecklar who said Obama was a Muslim. The need for new coverage of Presidencies is another recent truth spoken by the Senator that no other Republican Senator would utter just after The President's rally this weekend.

      Thanks - but my disagreement with the senator stems initially from his take on water-boarding... it is where he told "his" truth - in Europe.

      I don't think Senator MCcain is a fame whore because he do the right thing or tell the truth about his opinion. Is the treachery you wrote about treason against the government, we the people, the GOP. or conservative ideology (Alt- right) ? The President won the election by promising to do the right thing and telling some truths not told before, on the Hill. Good read, I just think The Senator is a good man sometimes, that's more then what I can say about the majority.
