John McCain is a Bitter, Dying Man: Getting captured, and tortured can’t erase the fact that he was and still is an idiot

So what did White House communications aide Kelly Sadler say that wasn’t true? John McCain is dying, How else to explain McCain’s attitude toward Donald Trump as the former presidential candidate dies of a brain abnormality. There’s obviously something wrong with the guy, because even after turning around the economy, bringing peace to North Korea and solving a long list of problems that have plagued White Houses for many years, McCain’s hatred for Trump goes even deeper than sanity would dictate. It was just a week ago that John McCain let it be known that he didn’t want President Trump to attend his funeral. What is the Trump administration supposed to apologize for, Kelly Sadler was telling the truth, and trying in the nicest way possible to explain away the actions of an obviously bitter man in McCain?

Yet of course there is always more going on isn’t there? The calls for the Trump administration to apologize isn’t out of respect, but control. The intentions of the Trump-hating politicians like John McCain was never to solve regional problems, they always intended to use them for more military deployment, larger military budgets and more reasons to conduct legislative monstrosities on Capital Hill. The North Korean problems were always solvable—the kid Kim Jong Un just wanted NBA basketball tickets. He’s been in love with the West for years, he just didn’t know how to get there—after all he had a role to play which he inherited from his own family. Everyone knew that the kid was willing to turn—but nobody acted on it until Trump was elected and now that the little secret is out of the bag, people like John McCain are spiteful that Trump is actually solving problems instead of using those same problems to further the power of the legislative branch by using chaos to gain public opinions. The Never Trumper types out there are angry at Trump for taking away their excuses—they aren’t outraged by porn stars, or Trump’s weekend golf games, they hate him because he does the job he was elected to do and people like McCain never wanted to solve the problems to begin with. People like McCain use problems to stay in power but believe that if they ever solve anything that the public will turn on them and expect results in the future—which incompetent people always fear—results.

This method of control which is being attempted to keep Americans always in a state of guilt to hide the solutions to problems goes back a long time. Even to the point in world history where holes were being dug in the earth to mine gold or coal, lunatics trying to maintain the old order of politics would try to scare away prospectors by proclaiming that nobody should do such things because they might dig their way into the devil’s bedroom and awaken the wrath of Hell for disturbing God’s fallen protégé. Of course, we all know that now to be nonsense, but such arguments have been made in the past to keep mankind clinging to the old so that those who held power could keep it based on the fears of the population. Even men on their dying beds hold such power to be their primary sustenance and they cling to those fears like a hungry person clutches a marinated chicken wing fresh off the grill.

What makes a person a hero is not that they were a prisoner of war, or that they suffered at the hands of an enemy. When Trump made his original comment during the 2016 campaign when he said he liked people who weren’t captured, he was simply stating that in the private sector results matter. Yet in politics there are all these emotional rules we are supposed to follow no matter how bad politicians have been. John McCain the way that the political order of things has established for us, is supposed to be a hero just because he was a POW during the Vietnam War. With that criteria the three guys who were just released from North Korea will be heroes for the rest of their lives, no matter what they do in the world. McCain lost the 2008 election because he had the wrong strategy and he cost Republicans a lot of trouble during the years of Obama. Most recently he voted against the repeal of Obamacare and he has even participated in the leaked dossier which found its way into the FBI hands against Trump. McCain went after the jugular of the Trump presidency many more times than once and we are supposed to overlook them all just because John McCain was captured at one point in his life?

Politicians like John McCain use military service to highlight a larger, more corrosive element of human existence which actually imprisons us all to the aristocracy of ancient times, when modern life has made it quite clear that those old politicians are worthless to our advancements. By highlighting military service as the highest honor an individual can obtain they define self-sacrifice to the “greater good” as being the focus of human existence, which is as wrong as wrong can be. But that’s how they have sold the kind of trouble that politicians have gotten America into over the years, for which ultimately Donald Trump was elected to fix. I have known that this game was a farce for a long time, and I dreamed of having someone like Trump in the White House to fix the philosophical problems presented by statist societies. Because he was a Republican I voted for John McCain in 2008 but he was so embarrassing—always apologizing for things, always insisting that we play nice with all our opponents—and he wonders why he lost. An apology is an admission that something is wrong or that someone committed an improper act. Would John McCain apologize to the United States for holding a personal grudge against President Trump by voting down the Obamacare reform, or in trying to keep the Russian conspiracy alive with fake documents just because he is spiteful that an American businessman was elected president while a POW from the Vietnam War didn’t get elected just because people didn’t feel guilty enough about his service in the military so long ago?

In the logic of the political order we are supposed to ignore everything John McCain says because he is dying, even to the point that we aren’t supposed to talk about it. We are supposed to ignore everything he says because he was a war hero, even though John McCain’s intentions have been quite malicious and personal. What he has done hasn’t been for the good of the country, it has been to satisfy his own yearnings for power by using guilt of service and hardship to cruise his way through frozen opinion that put his actions beyond social judgment—and that is just ridiculous. It is exactly that which caused people to vote for Trump in the first place, and if McCain really loved America, he’d see that. But John McCain doesn’t love America or its role in the world as a beacon of freedom. He loves to use guilt to drive opinion because he’s been doing it most of his life now—using his personal failures such as being captured as a POW to elevate himself beyond opinion so that the political order that he does love could continue to rule mankind through guilt instead of logic—and that is a crime all of itself.

Who Cares about John McCain’s Brain Tumor: Having the courage to repeal Obamacare

Who cares that John McCain has a brain tumor? Why would it surprise anyone that an 80-year-old man who has been in bad health since his 20s would have some ailment—and why was Barack Obama so quick to comment about it? Of course, I don’t wish anything bad on John McCain, but just because he’s sick doesn’t make him any less of a part of the problem. Let’s not forget that it was McCain who got involved in the scandalous dossier on Donald Trump giving it to James Comey and that at every turn the former Republican presidential candidate behaves more like a Democrat that wants war all over the world than a tightly controlled spending conservative. Could it be that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama know that McCain is that critical 50th vote in repealing Obamacare and that if they can turn the nation’s sympathies toward a sick old senator who happens to need “healthcare” at the moment that they might undo Trump’s work at removing the government from healthcare all together with a repeal of Obama’s signature legislation of socialist medicine. I wasn’t born yesterday—I’ve been around the block a few times and that’s the only reason so many people poured on the juice of sympathy for old John McCain. McCain is the plug in the swamp and you have to get rid of people like him to drain that swamp. It’s one thing to feel sorry for a person with a brain tumor. It’s quite another to use him as a shield of sympathy to protect Obamacare from repeal in a cowardly senate.

Rob Portman is another disgrace. To think that I actually once knew him and campaigned for him back when he first won his seat for the second congressional district back in 1993. Back then like a lot of young politicians Rob was full of conviction and wanted to do the right things. When he first won that seat, Rob was a virtuous character who operated like a Tea Party candidate—he in fact hung around with the Ross Perot Reform Party voters who obviously became Donald Trump supporters many years later. Now that he’s a beltway boy he hangs with RINOs like John McCain and John Kasich who want to spread Medicaid in the states and deepen that entitlement to the point where people are hooked and can never get off it. They are like drug dealers seeking to get people addicted to government so they will forever be dependent—so that government will always have a part to play in people’s lives centering from the Beltway. Portman is another no vote for the repeal of Obamacare because it was in Ohio where Kasich expanded Medicaid making Barack Obama very happy. All it took for John to cave was a serious defeat of Senate Bill 5 and a golf game with Obama and Biden to lose his nerve and become a major loser. And Portman has his back as a “compassionate conservative” from the land of Ohio. But the Republican party doesn’t belong to Kasich any more in Ohio. It belongs to Trump. Those boys are on the wrong side of history.

Then there are the three Republican women, Susan Collins, Shelley Moore Capito and Lisa Murkowski who talked tough and voted to repeal Obamacare when they all knew that Obama would veto the effort. Now that Trump will sign it, they are acting like—well—a bunch of girls. They can’t make a decision, they don’t want to pick a side, and they lack the courage to stand by their convictions. Just like John McCain’s brain tumor, it’s not their fault they are of the female sex—but it is their fault if they yield to the stereotype and fit the bill for being a bunch of confused idiots. They want to sound like tough conservatives until they have to make a decision. What they really want is to appeal to everyone—just like a typical loser Democrat and that is holding up very needed legislation to put free market influence back into the medical profession.

Is some of what I said a bit too harsh—about John McCain, Rob Portman and the weak girls of the Senate—maybe if we were more concerned with being sensitive than in doing what is right. All these people hide behind some demographic factor to conceal their liberal natures—McCain a sick old war veteran, Portman a guy who found out his kid was gay, and the ladies, people who as women have some mythical right to see all sides of a story so that nobody can ever make a decision—we are supposed to give them a pass because they are women?

There are a million excuses from these very weak people not to act on the massive insurrection that Obamacare always was—some hide behind their illnesses, some hide behind challenges to their conservative thinking by family members, and some hide behind their sex—but they are all wrong and hiding fundamental flaws in their personalities. They are using “circumstances” to avoid making hard decisions about matters critical to our country and it was disgraceful that one of the first people to do so was the former president of the United States, Barack Obama protecting his pathetic socialist care entitlement designed to crush our free market health care system—which has so far been successful.

Brain tumor or not, McCain has a job to do. We don’t need a bunch of fluffy memorials to distract us from the needs at hand. McCain needs to vote to repeal Obamacare, not to use his condition to delay a vote further and hope that everyone will lose their resolve and move on to something else while the world of finance around health care burns into oblivion, because that’s happening right now. McCain’s brain tumor is just a medical condition. It should not stop the wheels of progress by any means.

I have news for those standing against the Trump agenda. If you consider where things were one year ago from this writing then project another year of progress from this date into the future, people like McCain, Portman, Kasich and Collins—along with other never-Trump types like Glenn Beck and all of Hollywood—they are all missing the boat. Trump is moving on and doing so rapidly. He doesn’t take vacations. He doesn’t sleep. He never gets tired and he thinks of ideas a mile a minute—ever day—even on Sundays. He’s doing many good things and has literally changed the political world in only a year. Another year of this and things will be completely different. Silly tricks like this health care stunt and hoping to put a story on John McCain for a week or so to delay a healthcare vote in the Senate just isn’t going to work. Trump won’t let it go. This idea is not going to fade off into the sunset only to be consumed and buried in the Washington swamp. If they were smart, they’d vote to repeal now and consolidate their efforts behind President Trump. If McCain wants to fix his brain tumor, then fix it. But vote—and vote Republican. Otherwise, get the hell out-of-the-way. At 80 years old, nobody expects a specimen of health—but we do expect a Republican if you put an “R” next to your name. And with that “R” we expect courage—not a bunch of wishy-washy liberals.
