McCain Institute falls on hard times

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 arock starhe 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.”

    The majority of the McCain clan is steeped in self promotion (From what I know of John and Cindy’s two sons, both committed military, I exclude them from this assessment.) The rest of the pack can’t speak without uttering the word “legacy.” Meghan is trash, who is fortunate to have been born into wealth, or her big mouth and oversized rear would be behind a diner counter, yelling “BLT…hold the mayo!”

    Perhaps their whales got nervous.
    Or maybe their $$$ got tied up, so to speak.

    Maybe it has something to do with this:

    Human trafficking comes in many forms. It may be said that persons in our government are encouraging it, or even helping it (the border).

    Have you followed the criminal case in NY regarding the “sex cult”,
    known as NXIVM? You should read about it. That was a form of human trafficking.

    It includes the famous Seagrams heiress, Clare Bronfman.
    An adult beverage heiress with lots of friends, is Clare and her sister.
    One of her lawyers is none other than Dennis Burke, who used to ride Janet Nappy’s coattails.
    And Dem prez hopeful and current Congress person Kirsten Gillibrand’s father and stepmother.
    And the son of a former president of Mexico, Salinas.
    Perhaps a money laundering entity for the Clinton Foundation, too?
    the devil’s in the details—literally and figuratively.

    Do a search for “global incident map human trafficking”
    President Trump has made this a priority from day 1.
    It went active on Day 1. Worldwide.

    Meanwhile,
    Tomorrow, Sunday, marks the anniversary of the deaths of 19 members of the Granite Valley Hotshots, who lost their lives in a blind box canyon near Yarnell. June 30, 2013.
    What an eff’d up tragedy that was.

    But, you know, it is said that the azrag filed an FOIA back then and, for some reason, withdrew it. Zerogonads.
    Another example of how this paper Could have exposed the roadblocks and shoddy “investigations” done by bureaucrats.
    Investigations that had as many holes as Swiss cheese.

    May they rest in peace.

    The newspaper is on borrowed time through its own efforts. How long do those in charge think it can survive by insulting its remaining readers? And the McCain Institute? It’s supposedly connected to ASU but is housed in DC? What’s that about? The word “Institute” is intended to give it heft, make it seem a venerable entity. Those of us who live in Arizona have never been conned by this con who married his way into politics. He was repeatedly elected by newcomers unfamiliar with other names on the ballot and by retirement community residents around the state who bought into his self glorifying tales of heroism.

    Those who knew him better had a much different take on John McAmnesty:

    This will make the azragsters go nuts:

    Call it off-topic if you want, but thank God that Congressman Paul Gosar is no McCain:

    H.R. 3564 – The Fairness for High-Skilled Americans Act was introduced yesterday, June 27, 2019 by Congressman Paul Gosar of Arizona. The bill seeks to “amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the Optional Practical Training Program.”

    Paul Gosar is a hero to the millions of American, highly skilled workers who have been silenced and ignored while being pushed out of good paying, research, and technology jobs across the United States. H.R. 3564, The Fairness for High-Skilled Americans Act, was created in response to the H.R. 1044/S386 legislation entitled, The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act introduced by Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren and Senator’s Lee of Utah and Harris of California.

    H.R. 1044/S386 was lobbied in Congress by foreign interests and funded by foreign dollars. Supported by big tech and global corporations, the proponents of this legislation were given access and opportunity to U.S. Congressman and Senators. Those entities that benefit from the steady stream of cheap foreign labor garnered through the H1B visa program unquestionably support the passage of this legislation. H.R. 1044/S386 is anything but “fair” and the majority of those H1B workers employed in the U.S. are typically anything but “highly skilled.”

    H.R. 1044/S386 seeks to eliminate the 7% per country limit for employment-based green cards and to double the family-based limit from 7% today to 15% which will allow one country to co-opt America’s green card allocation for nearly a decade. The result will prohibit diversity in immigration and push American citizens out of the STEM professions for good.

      U.S. Rep Paul Gosar is a true conservative, which is why his nutcase liberal siblings unforgivably cut ads against him when he ran for reelection. I’d love to see him in the US Senate, but he’s got a solid base in the 4th Congressional District, and I don’t want to lose him.

  5. jojo says:

    I’d love to see anyone in the Senate besides the McCain sycophant McSaly. PLEASE PRIMARY HER. Some one – any one unless you want to lose another Senate seat.

  6. jake sez says:

    There may be a primary opponent to McSally soon. If it works our make sure you support him.
