The Senate’s Unremembered Ex-POW
American Spectator, by Joseph P. Duggan

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/2/2018 5:14:59 AM

His path to distinguished service in the United States Senate led through the Naval Academy, aerial combat over hostile territory, and long years of confinement, beatings, and torture in the Hanoi Hilton. He was a man worth remembering. No, his name was not John McCain. Six years before McCain’s election to the Senate, Alabama voters sent retired Rear Admiral Jeremiah Denton to Washington’s upper chamber. Both the parallels and the divergences in Denton and McCain’s lives tell something about the last few decades of our political history.

Comments:
And also courtly Texas congressman Sam Johnson, who was a POW for almost 7 years.

I hear McCain’s funeral was a stupendous extravaganza - a not-to-be-missed entertainment blow-out of tears, laughter, great stories and over the top performances. No, that was Aretha’s funeral. Wait, I was right. It was McCain’s. Drat! I get mixed up.

Thank you for this article. It is nice to see the truth written. I have not watched one minute of the McCain show. Have heard it was a Trump bashing extravaganza. I am outraged at the behavior of those who spoke encluding his daughter. Disgusting behavior of all.

Excellent article, thanks for posting. Mr. Duggan introduces or reminds those of us who knew of him, of the late truly fine, Rear Admiral Jeremiah Denton and simultaneously accurately and succinctly explains much about John McCain.

This is an excellent article that absolutely should be read by all. I seem to remember a movie about Admiral Denton on TV with Hal Holbrook playing him that mentioned the Morse code - eyelids incident and his captivity in North Vietnam. To me, he is FAR more a hero because although both were P.O.W.´s, Admiral Denton didn´t lead with that fact and, unlike McCain, demand special regards because of it.

As to the FIVE day Wellstone-esque Funeral and Celebrity Roast and Revue, I am beginning to suspect that, not only did McCain plan out every minute of this thing on both coasts since he has been planning it for a year, but he also wrote every word of every speech read there. His ego was such that he would have wanted to have had the last word and the best way to ultimately do that is to write your own memorial speeches and have them read at your funeral. I just wouldn´t put it past him!

Another POW served in the US House of Representatives. Sam Houston Johnson recently retired. I think he was one of those who led his fellow POW´s to let what happened in Hanoi stay in Hanoi. He was a much more distinguished and classy than McCain. He also bore a lot of physical pain from his treatment as a POW. He was a great American and an honor to his namesake.

Excellent article.
This highlights why I have despised McCain for decades.

Spoiled, rotten, self-important, untrustworthy small minded puke.

FTA:"This contrasts with McCain’s vaunted reputation for what his apologists wrongly called bipartisanship. What McCain actually did, again and again, was to sabotage consensus within his own party out of an impulse for gaining attention and increasing his negotiating position in regard to other interests.

With no discernible principle or regard for the public interest on his side, McCain single-handedly sabotaged the repeal of Obamacare. No one can say honestly that his motivation was anything other than spite for President Trump."


Good summary. Denton was a real good man, far more than McHate.

That the Swamp Creatures fell all over themselves to honor such a dishonorable man says volumes about them.

Drain the Swamp!

MAGA!

What #13 added plus this:

McCain showed this character trait throughout his Senate career, even when the issues were more arcane — although extremely important to special interests — and were not gaining top-of-the-news publicity. This is something I witnessed in 1995, when I was communications director of the Senate Commerce Committee. Superficially, the committee was divided into two caucuses, the Republican majority and the Democratic minority. Beneath the surface, there was a third caucus: McCain.

I echo #12 in that Rep. Sam Johnson was a fine and honorable man who never once did the grandstand, nor to my knowledge ever run on his former POW status, as did McVain, over and over and over again. McCain was a liar who when running would invoke building the wall, then once back in Washington collaborate with Democrats to opposed the funding. He was the embodiment of a traitor without a conscience.

Back in the early 70s, bracelets were worn day and night with names of each POW to support their return. I had, among many others, the name of Jeremiah Denton. When a POW returned, many of us sent our bracelet to that serviceman. What a joy and relief it was to know that Jeremiah Denton was home! Anyone else remember having one of those bracelets?

RE #20:

I remember those copper bracelets well. I was only a child when they were worn but I remember them mostly because they were worn for the son of the lady who live one street over from us. He was first listed as a P.O.W and then later came home under a flag. Some images are just burnt into your mind.

Trump Can Still Prevail in the Midterms
National Review Online, by Conrad Black    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/21/2018 5:10:10     Post Reply
The current standing of the Democrats in the midterm election polls is a levitation. Their record when they had the administration was poor. Their official leader, former president Obama, bombed with his long-winded, self-serving monotone of historical revision at the University of Illinois two weeks ago and its dreary sequels in Orange County, Calif. He reminded America of why it put Donald Trump in the White House. The Democrats and their helpers have emptied their magazines at the opening of the mid-term campaign. Bob Woodward’s novel is a wet kipper. Let him reveal his transcripts

The other day I received a call from a former Catholic University of America student who recounted episodes of sexual harassment that he suffered at the hands of Monsignor Walter Rossi, the Gay Mafioso whom pederast Cardinal Theodore McCarrick appointed to run the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in 2005. Rossi succeeded another accused gay harasser, (then monsignor, later bishop) Michael Bransfield who is currently under investigation for preying upon men. So in Rossi’s rise we see another case of gay predators promoting and protecting each other. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, one of the premier enablers

Whatever Happens To Kavanaugh,

The leading Democratic figures during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings were presumed 2020 presidential hopefuls Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Both grandstanded to great applause from Democratic partisans, but failed to nick the nomination. The two young guns made a lot of noise, but it was an older, wiser woman who with a single shot turned a hopeless situation for Democrats into a big potential political win. Dianne Feinstein was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1992, the original “year of the woman.” During the previous year, Clarence Thomas had been confirmed to the Supreme Court

Christine Blasey Ford´s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago, two sources told Fox News on Thursday night. Among the terms: Only members of the committee -- no lawyers -- can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford´s testimony. The requests, some of which appeared to be negotiable, capped a whirlwind

There’s one relevant question: Did Brett Kavanaugh do what Christine Blasey Ford says he did — or anything like it? To answer that question, the Senate Judiciary Committee has proposed the best course of action: have committee staff, not politicians, question Ford and Kavanaugh under oath, behind closed doors if Ford wishes. But Ford and Democrats don’t want such an inquiry, in part because they want to debate other questions besides Kavanaugh’s actual guilt or innocence.

No, global warming isn’t

It’s human nature to assign blame for catastrophic events. In medieval times, witches were blamed for weather woes. Trials and burnings increased when weather got worse. In hurricane season today, many find a scapegoat in global warming. Pundits tell us “ignoring the science of climate change will hurt us” (Kristina Ball at NBC) and a Washington Post editorial declares the Trump administration complicit. It’s a familiar drumbeat, recognizable from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Sandy. For years, Al Gore and others emphasized the need to connect extreme weather to climate change to encourage carbon cuts.

One day after Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., raised concerns about the polygraph test taken by Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford, her attorney is refusing to comment on who paid for the examination or provide additional details on how it was conducted. And experts contacted by Fox News confirmed that while polygraph examinations can be useful, they are ultimately fallible tools that "can be beaten." Without mentioning any particular instances, one former senior FBI agent said polygraphs would have difficulty detecting deception by sociopaths, psychopaths and committed liars lacking a "conscience."

While recently watching a documentary on the Smithsonian Channel about a 1987 plane crash in California purportedly caused by a deranged passenger, I realized a profound shift had occurred in my accepted wisdom, my “worldview.” During its investigation of the crash, the FBI allegedly found a vital piece of evidence at the scene, which led to them identifying a suspect behind the crash. It dawned on me that I doubted the veracity of both the evidence the FBI supposedly found and of the documentary itself. Then I realized that my doubt was purely a result of everything

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

The Deep State is in an obvious panic mode since President Donald Trump ordered a number of documents relating to the Russia investigation be declassified.
