HISTORICAL: Not a big fan of John McCain

McCain and the POW Cover-Up
By Sydney Schanberg 
The American Conservative
March 22, 2019

*** begin quote ***

Eighteen months ago, TAC publisher Ron Unz discovered an astonishing account of the role the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, had played in suppressing information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam. Below, we present in full Sydney Schanberg’s explosive story.

* * *

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. 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.

*** and ***

For many reasons, including the absence of a political constituency for the missing men other than their families and some veterans’ groups, very few Americans are aware of the POW story and of McCain’s role in keeping it out of public view and denying the existence of abandoned POWs. That is because McCain has hardly been alone in his campaign to hide the scandal.

The Arizona senator, now the Republican candidate for president, has actually been following the lead of every White House since Richard Nixon’s, and thus of every CIA director, Pentagon chief, and national security adviser, not to mention Dick Cheney, who was George H.W. Bush’s Defense secretary. Their biggest accomplice has been an indolent press, particularly in Washington.

*** end quote ***

While “one should never speak ill of the dead”, in this case, we must recognize historical facts.

Aside from his role in the Keating Five of S&L scandal fame, who will ever forget him casting the vote to spite DJT45 on Obamacare.

These are the reason that the families of POWs and veteran’s organizations are not big fans of John McCain. Every month, in every American Legion hall across the globe, “our POWs a remembered”.

In DJT45’s style of “bull in the china shop”, he’s not exactly wrong.  He just doesn’t lay out the factual case that once again the “American Gooferment” is not “veteran’s friend” like all the politicians claim to be.

Lest we forget!

Argh!

Bokhari: On Immigration, Guns, and Speech, Banks Act as a Shadow Government | Breitbart

Thursday, March 21, 2019

Whether it’s gun policy, immigration, energy or censorship, the left has found a method of imposing its will that’s far more efficient than dealing with the American system of government, designed as it was to contain the worst impulses of political radicals. Sick of these constitutional inconveniences, the far-left now intend to enact tyranny through the politically-motivated harassment of the private sector — and the private sector is seeming only too happy to oblige. Can conservatives be awakened from their laissez-faire, free market stupor in time to stop it?

PIERS MORGAN: Take ‘hunter’ Guy Gorney’s gun away and see how brave he is | Daily Mail Online

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

The definition of cowardice is a ‘lack of courage to face danger, difficulty, opposition, pain.’ It’s excatly what American trophy-hunter Guy Gorney displayed when he killed a sleeping lion.

I agree.

(Astonishing that we agree on anything?)

Make him be like the Zulu youth, who takes a short spear and a small reed shield to kill a lion.

Seems fairer.

The Final Level of Censorship is Here: The Banning of URLs

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

So while the telcos have defended their decision to censor a wide swath of material in order to shield people from dangerous information – and have encouraged social media platforms to commit to European-style information control, Kiwis and Australians will only get to know what the technocracy approves in order to ‘protect consumers.’

​Need to “punch” Big Tech in the nose.  Either they want to have the “common carrier protection” or not.  If not, fine, let them be honest about what they are doing.  Then, they are “responsible” for the content.  Can’t have it both ways, imho.

College Cheating Scandal, by Walter E.Williams | Creators Syndicate

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

I’m not sure about what can be done about education. But the first step toward any solution is for the American people to be aware of academic fraud that occurs at every level of education.

How about getting the Gooferment out of Gooferment Skrules?

Separation of Government and Education at all levels!

That’s the way to start.
