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.

Right to Work Wins Out in Kentucky
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill McMorris    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/19/2018 5:15:50     Post Reply
Labor unions were dealt another blow in Kentucky after the state supreme court upheld its right to work law. The state´s highest court upheld a lower court judge´s ruling dismissing the lawsuit filed by Teamsters Local 89. The 4-3 majority affirmed that the law, which prohibits mandatory union fees as a condition of employment, passed state constitutional muster and was appropriate under federal labor law. "We hold that the Unions´ constitutional challenges to the Act are without merit," the majority ruling in the 4-3 case says.

Acosta Gets His Press Pass Back,

Weekly Standard, by Andrew Egger    Original Article

Extra, extra, read all about it: CNN’s Jim Acosta has his press pass back. Last week, the Trump administration yanked the White House reporter’s credential following a silly spat with an intern over a microphone. CNN sued, arguing Acosta’s due process rights had been violated, and on Friday morning, a judge granted them a temporary restraining order, compelling the White House to return his credential. “I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,” proclaimed a jubilant Acosta in a statement. “Let’s go back to work!” And OK, look, this is good news.

Fake news is a serious problem in our political life. I’m not referring to a pathetically small number of Facebook ads bought by Russian provocateurs. I’m talking about the fake news that was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee; fabricated by Democratic Party-allied consultants; propagated by the FBI and the CIA; promoted by the broadcast networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press; trumpeted by pretty much every senior elected Democrat; and kept alive by the appalling Robert Mueller.

Pentagon Caught in a Perfect Political Storm

Sebastian Junger’s book The Perfect Storm chronicled an unusual weather event when several storm fronts combined to create a storm of unimaginable strength. Years of cuts in defense spending, the atrophying of our forces strained by seventeen years of war, President Trump’s sudden decision to cut Pentagon spending willy-nilly, and the Democrats’ taking control of the House has created a perfect political storm that will batter the Pentagon and enormously damage our national security. Time and again, President Trump has demanded that the military be rebuilt to be the biggest, baddest actor on the planet. The 2019 Pentagon budget

For her part, May is standing firm on the deal in the face of a gale of criticism and is intent on pushing the deal to a vote in the House of Commons. But if political opponents in her own party

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Facing Deadlier Fires, California

FRENCH MEADOWS RESERVOIR, Calif.—Obscured amid the chaos of California’s latest wildfire outbreak is a striking sign of change that may help curtail future devastating infernos. After decades of butting heads, some environmentalists and logging supporters have largely come to agreement that forests need to be logged to be saved. The current fires are hitting populated areas along the edges of forests and brush lands, including the 142,000-acre Camp Fire in Northern California’s Butte County. That now ranks as the most deadly and destructive in state history, killing at least 63 people, leaving hundreds missing and destroying more than 9,800 homes.

If you want to know where media bias resides, simply look at who the media isn’t questioning. The most recent row between CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Donald Trump reinforced this observation. On the heels of the Trump Administration’s decision to revoke the press pass for Jim Acosta (which a D.C. judge has since ordered the White House to reinstate), the “mainstream” media backed Acosta in decrying the purported assault on America’s hallowed First Amendment. Piggybacking on the mainstream media’s argument, the New York Times’ “True Conservative™,” Bret Stephens, shared his fear that the United States will resemble autocratic Turkey

So CNN’s Jim Acosta scored some court points with a ruling that orders the White House to give back his press pass, at least for the time being. But he still presents as a smug elitist. He presented as an out-of-touch elitist the day he jerked away from the arm of the reaching White House intern — the day he refused to cede the microphone and cede the floor and cede his time to the many other journalists who were patiently waiting to pose questions to the president. But post-ruling, caught on camera walking from the courthouse,

The race for Governor of Georgia between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams wasn’t particularly close. Kemp won by 55,000 votes. But since the election, Abrams has tried to position herself for a recount, or something, that might magically erase that impressive margin. Today she gave up, sort of: Stacey Abrams halted her run for Georgia governor Friday, but the Democrat said she would not concede the contest to Republican Brian Kemp and planned to launch a voting rights group to file “major” litigation challenging election policies. There will be no such “major” litigation. What would it challenge?

The possibility of a permanent U.S. military base in Poland moved a few steps forward this week. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met with his Polish counterpart Mariusz Blaszczak Tuesday to discuss Poland’s offer to spend $2 billion on a permanent base for U.S. troops and their families in the country. The base was jokingly called “Fort Trump” by Poland’s president after meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump. “We are working out the details on what the offer is, what can best contribute to alliance unity, to alliance security and to the continued strengthening of the bilateral relationship,”

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make
