Americans love a good story, especially one that helps to reaffirm the nobility and bravery of our armed forces. Unfortunately, that story doesn’t apply to John McCain.
The longtime “republican” Senator from Arizona has risen to prominence in American politics thanks in part to his record as a veteran and supposed war hero. This distinction, however, has been well documented as a troublesome farce for some time, with a number of McCain’s military contemporaries trying desperately to get the truth out there every time the aging Senator comes up for reelection, or aligns himself with the D.C. swamp’s Deep State denizens.
McCain had a unique POW experience. Initially, he was taken to the infamous Hanoi Hilton prison camp, where he was interrogated. By McCain’s own account, after three or four days, he cracked. He promised his Vietnamese captors, “I’ll give you military information if you will take me to the hospital.”His Vietnamese capturers soon realized their POW, John Sidney McCain III, came from a well-bred line of American military elites. McCain’s father, John Jr., and grandfather, John Sr., were both full Admirals. A destroyer, the USS John S. McCain, is named after both of them. While his son was held captive in Hanoi, John McCain Jr., from 1968 to 1972, was the Commander-in-Chief of U.S. Pacific Command; Admiral McCain was in charge of all US forces in the Pacific including those fighting in Vietnam. ..The Admiral’s bad boy was used to special treatment and his captors knew that. They were working him.For his part, McCain acknowledges that the Vietnamese rushed him to a hospital, but denies he was given any “special medical treatment.” However….two weeks into his stay at the Vietnamese hospital, the Hanoi press began quoting him. It was not “name rank and serial number, or kill me,” as specified by the military code of conduct. McCain divulged specific military information: he gave the name of the aircraft carrier on which he was based, the number of US pilots that had been lost, the number of aircraft in his flight formation, as well as information about the location of rescue ships…
This ugly reality has haunted McCain in the free press for decades, yet the mainstream media refuses to admit the truth.
Now, McCain has once again been caught red-handed turning against his fellow countrymen, singling out American patriots for inordinate discrimination.
Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.
The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.
In layman’s terms, this means that John McCain himself was involved in, and likely responsible for, attacks on The Tea Party patriots and other libertarian leaning groups who evolved out of the dinosaur-like GOP that McCain is attempting to prop up.
You can take the traitor out of Hanoi, but you’ll never remedy his treacherous ways, it seems.
