It took a total of three pages for the gloomy Page One story to be fleshed out. Listen closely and you can almost hear the gnashing of teeth over the ominous news bearing this headline: “ASU’s McCain Institute faces new challenges without senator.”
It’s a good bet the institute bearing the name of the deity worshiped by the adoring sycophants at the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, was heading south prior to this lengthy admission of despair. McCain called Hillary a “rock star” he could support in 2016. They were both recipients of Socialist, America hating, multi-billionaire George Soros’ generosity.
The article interviews a high dollar donor who talks in terms of McCain’s “legacy,” always McCain’s paramount consideration. We are reminded that the man who graduated at the bottom of his U.S. Naval Academy class, was “the son and grandson of admirals” — which is how the flamboyant hotshot who crashed three navy planes, gained admittance to the USNA’s hallowed halls in the first place.
Cindy Lou Hensley McCain, a beer empire heiress, is given coverage. She is identified as a “humanitarian activist and philanthropist,” who also goes on record with talk of “advancing her husband’s legacy and values.” In fact, she has hired a Hollywood agent to book paid speaking engagements for her. Cindy’s going rate is between $5,000 and $10,000.
Between selling their luxury penthouse in the Biltmore area and buying and renovating a nearly $3 million French chateau inspired home in the upscale North Central corridor, she’s also been busy taking over as chairman of the Washington, D.C. based McCain Institute.
In her public statement, she said, “The mission of the McCain Institute, to advance values-based leadership around the world, has always been important to my family. I believe the work of the Institute, from fighting human trafficking to training the next generation of international leaders to advancing human rights and democracy, is more important now than ever. I’m honored to take on this role, particularly as the Institute undertakes an ambitious set of new initiatives to expand its impact.”
Human trafficking is a topic Cindy McCain has made her hallmark, even when it involves blatant deception. Cindy concocted a preposterous story about witnessing the trafficking of a toddler at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and went public with it, though her account was disputed by Phoenix Police.
The anorexic newspaper, back on the auction block, functions largely with student reporters, lacking editors. Now reduced to vagrant status after being forced to sell its 10-story building and parking garage, it pathetically pleads with readers, “Have news to share about Arizona’s U.S. senators or national politics? Reach [the reporter] on Twitter and Facebook.” Her contact info is included. “Support local journalism,” it begs. “Subscribe (newspaper’s link is provided) today.”
