Showed ‘The Very Same Courage He Showed

Breitbart Video, by Ian Hanchett

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/28/2017 12:52:54 PM

During a press conference on Friday, Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) praised Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Susan Collins (R-ME) for their votes against the skinny Obamacare repeal and stated McCain’s vote showed the same courage he showed during his service in the Vietnam War. Schumer said that he and McCain “have been friends for a very long time, ever since the Gang of Eight, which we put together. And I have not seen a senator who speaks truth to power as strongly, as well, and as frequently as John McCain. The very same courage

It takes courage to be a naval aviator, but he was captured by communists then and he keeps getting caught by them.

Schumer wants the Republicans to cooperate with Democrat legislative initiatives but has no intention of the Democrats ever cooperating with Republican legislative initiatives.

That´s historically the way it has been in the Congress as the Republicans got used to simply going along with the Democrats to get along with them, John McCain is seeped in that political way of doing business.

There are a number of RINOs (Republicans in name only) on the Republican side of the aisle who will always go along with the Democrats to kill upcoming Republican initiatives, and that includes tax and any common sense protocols to effectively enforce the immigration laws, the Democrats have no such liability as we have seen as the Democrats always vote as a bloc.

It is common knowledge in the POW community that McCain turned on them. He gave the North Viets whatever they wanted for favorable treatment while everyone else was tortured. Yea, right Chucke Scum_er, that a hero! McPain has not changed one bit, he is a Traitor to America!

John "Songbird" McCain made his Naval career on the backs of his father and grandfather both Admirals. He crashed a total of five aircraft. including his crash aboard the USS Forrestal which resulted in the death of 134 sailors.
He´s been a despicable weasel his entire life.

We had a schoolteacher at one time that walked sort of off balance. The reason was that he was a POW and had sharp reeds pushed under his toenails. I don´t know how much more they did to him but he was very well respected as a teacher. Of course wer´re talking about when teachers had control of their classes and kids were taught to learn and respect others.

McCain, Collins and Murkowski succeeded in making this albatross a bipartisan bill.

The Republicans had been on record as being united against Obamacare. These three weasel dingbats made sure the failure can now be blamed on both parties.

The Republican leadership is impotent to do anything on behalf of the American people. This is beyond disgusting.

And Mr. Schumer, your opinion is equal to horse dung.

I´m afraid the brain washing captivity in Vietnam is still not out of McPain.

If he was not one of the lead RINOs he should change party affiliation along with the nags who joined him.

As to the courage he showed in Vietnam, he disobeyed orders and got captured. Then, he sang like a canary. He should have been in Leavenworth not the senate.

So McCain forgot what he was told in his briefing, dived down to a low altitude to avoid an imaginary surface-to-air missle, and idiotically flew directly into the range of conventional anti- aicraft fire a remotely competent pilot would have been able to avoid? And then, when captured, earned the nickname "Songbird" from his fellow POWs?!

No one ever remembers a Senator, except for Eugene McCarthy, and that´s all the Demonrats´ doing.
No, John McVain will not be remembered, and if the Navy DARES to name anything but a garbage scow after him then it´s a stab in the chest of all those brave men who endured prison camps and died guarding secrets. This political turncoat will not be remembered, but his father and grandfather will be. That´s the way it always works.

I don´t know how many people here know what really happened on the flight deck that day. I know there are coverups, but you can´t lie about visual evidence recorded on film that day. The rocket that fired came from the starboard side of the flight deck and struck the A4 next to McCain´s. The pilot in the plane was never seen again. McCain got out and escaped. His plane didn´t fire the rocket as far as the film shows. His plane was on the port side of the flight deck.

Having said that, I agree with every statement here that he was never a hero and let his fellow POWs suffer as he received comfort from the VC. Even worse he is in the senate as a traitor to the people and to the republcan party.

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it

Thanks to Monday´s solar eclipse, disastrous traffic jams have been taking over the country these last few days. And as folks leave the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918, the U.S. Department of Transportation estimated that nearly two-thirds of the nation´s resident live withing a day´s drive of the path of totality. And with Oregon being the first to see the eclipse, it and neighboring state Washington are experiencing the worst bouts of the traffic jams. ´This is the biggest transportation event that has ever hit Oregon,´ Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation told AP.

Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” Helm writes in an article titled “White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.” White people are asked, “Give up the

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

A Texas college campus removed four statues of prominent Confederate figures in an overnight sweep, according to reports. The statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston, Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan and former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg were each taken down from the campus’ Main Mall in an operation beginning just before midnight and continuing through the early morning, KSAT 12 reported. “Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation,” University of Texas President Greg Fenves said in a statement. “These events make

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
