Washington Times editorial exposes corrupt McCain

McCain’s legacy is as traitor to the conservative cause”

Matt Drudge calls John McCain, “the face of corruption.” and  this terse editorial not only agrees, but says, ‘Drudge nailed it.’ The Washington Times editorial, reposted below is unlike anything ever read in the flagrantly liberal, McCain-and-Flake-worshiping Arizona Republic. The duo of practiced deceivers also is given cover by Arizona Republican Party leadership which goes mute on the myriad deceptions of two embarrassing senators. Chairman Jonathan lines, elected in January, is the subject of a recall.

Matt Drudge of Drudge Report fame didn’t take kindly to Sen. John McCain’s recent thumbs-down vote on Obamacare repeal.

In a tweet that quickly amassed 5,500 or so likes, and near 2,800 retweets, Drudge simply wrote: “Corruption has so many faces …”

The message was atop a photo of a McCain campaign photo that included the senator’s face and this text: “John McCain: Leading the fight to stop Obamacare.”

Right. A picture says 1,000 words.

But in this case, one suffices. And Drudge nailed it: Corruption.

McCain, pure and simple, screwed Republicans, conservatives and President Donald Trump on Obamacare repeal. And he did it simply because he could.

He did it because, post-brain cancer diagnosis, he has nothing to lose. His political career is nearing its end, he’s made his money, he’s secured his family’s financial future.

He did it, bluntly, because he hates Trump more than he loves the American people.

And for a supposed war hero, that’s quite a statement to send.

Drudge’s tweet drew a photo from McCain’s 2016 re-election campaign. And McCain can say what he wants as his reasons for turning down the repeal bill — and he has indeed come out and said the “skinny repeal fell short of our promise to repeal and replace.”

But fact is: His legacy now is as a traitor to the conservative cause. Or, as Drudge likes to call it: “Corruption.”

    Arizona’s elected state committeemen voted a censure against McCain for his betrayal of our party principles. It passed overwhelmingly. Those of us who know the score despise McCain and never vote for him. He’s elected by the ill-informed, newcomers to the state and senior citizens who believe his lies. He was the subject of a recall that took a back seat to even more atrocious events of Sept. 11, 2001, and tho gaining steam, was set aside due to the Muslim jihad taking place in New York City, Washington DC and Pennsylvania.

    We also need to toss Jeff Flake, who is well on his way to becoming even worse than the traitorous McCain.

    It’s been said that “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Who stands as more of a testament to those words than members of the ‘Club of 100,’ the US Senate?

    Jeff Sessions is one of the few I trust who has spent time in that body. I’m glad Pres, Trump selected him as US Attorney General. I hope he keeps him in that position. As a Trump supporter, I’m not at all happy with the barbs and outright insults being thrown at USAG Sessions.

  3. Former GOP PC says:

    Arizona residents have been badly represented for so long, it’s become the norm. Even Jon Kyl was engaged in purging elected conservatives from the GOP precinct committeemen ranks. He taught the devious trickery to McCain and Jeff the Flake. I know it’s getting to be my broken record, but this is crucial information. My wife and I were loyal, hardworking elected PCs for years, volunteering our time and generous with our money. Then we fell prey to these miserable practices that removed us during the primary election, by way of overfilling the committeemen slots with hand picked RINOs. Post cards were sent out throughout the precinct with a list of the “conservatives” to vote for. We were not on that list. Those who were elected were unknowledgeable and certainly not committed to the unpaid job. They did nothing and rarely showed up at the district meetings. McCain and Flake have been engaging in these same purges of conservatives. The care nothing about the Republican party, less than nothing about conservatives and are committed only to retaining power.

    McCain: Thinking a Mexican Border Wall Will ‘Stop Illegal Immigration or Drugs Is Crazy’ | Mediaite

    https://www.mediaite.com/online/mccain-thinking-a-mexican-border-wall-will-stop-illegal-immigration-or-drugs-is-crazy/

    The only crazy here is McCain. The following is from the above article. He’s been shining us on for decades about securing the border. It’s either ‘build the danged fence’ or ‘we need technology.’ Nothing EVER gets done. It’s time this fraud pays for his anti-American behavior. Globalism is anti-American.

    “The Arizona lawmaker continued, “We need technology, we need drones, we need surveillance capabilities and we need rapid-reaction capabilities…but to think that a wall is going to stop illegal immigration or drugs is crazy.””

    • MacBeth says:

      The first Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge was a short timer who did nothing. He was followed by liberal former judge named Michael Chertoff. He was all in for technology, surveillance and drones and spent millions of taxpayer dollars on the boondoggle before admitting it wasn’t actually effective. None of them want to close the border. The Chambers of Commerce support the cheap labor flow into the US and these are the same folks the politicians rely on for campaign donations. It’s a incestuous, insidious relationship that keeps our streets unsafe and brings life altering drugs into the lives of America’s youth.

      We can and should do better, but for some reason keep reelecting scumbags like McCain and Flake.

        Don’t forget the Wall Street Journal

        WSJ: Use Immigration To Keep Wages Down
        http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/04/wsj-immigration-needed-keep-wages/

        We didn’t need Homeland Security. GWBush was ‘forced’ into it by the big-government Democrats. Bush put up a bit of a fight – but we got it anyway. All Jeh Johnson ever did was steal money running it.

        [Senator Flake voted YES (Sen. McCain did not vote) to confirm Jeh Johnson as the director of the Department of Homeland Security. Johnson was confirmed 78-16.]

    We don’t need much technology and we don’t need drones.
    Just put the military in position and shoot the bastards—because, after all, it seems that violence is the only thing that the invaders understand.

    As a humanitarian act, we could use small planes to drop leaflets written in various languages warning of our very own no-go zone.

    Just don’t let McCain fly the plane.
    Or, maybe, yes, do.

    A late evening note:

    Just thought you might get a kick out of former first daughter Malia Obama in Chicago. Thrashing and rolling around on the floor and banging her head to the music.
    And apparently smoking a little weed.

    She’s headed to Harvard this fall. If all of her brains don’t fall out.

    The video makes you want to call 9-1-1
    but in Chicago it might take them a few hours to roll up.

      She’s a privileged young (immature) lady – enjoying a ‘gap year’ like wealthy Rockefeller, et al females did back in the day……the very behavior the Left criticizes Anglo’s for as being part of the “white privilege” world. If the Bush girls or even worse – someone from the Trump family was writhing on the ground at a concert – the news media would be exploding with moral outrage. I don’t see her future as one who will discover a cure for cancer.
