And once again the traitor senator from the great state of Arizona, John McCain, pops his ugly head to attack our President, Donald J.Trump. This time by penning a scathing Washington Post opinion piece never seen before from a senator towards a president in the same political party. How does this man keep getting elected?
During the 2008 campaign Traitor, McCain had no issues defending the man who would end up leaving the United States in severe financial and moral decay. Who can forget the time most of us Americans saw him as presidential candidate John McCain. Who while conducting a town hall meeting in Minnesota in 2008 he firmly rebuffed a woman in the audience who truthfully said she couldn’t trust Barack Obama because he was an “Arab?” He quickly reacted by removing the microphone from her hand and replying “No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man and citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign’s all about. He’s not an Arab.”
Most actually still blame the fact that Candidate McCain wouldn’t take Obama and his questionable past to task as to why he lost the 2008 election. But today he seems to be making up for it by attacking the president from his own party. In the article, which you have to be a subscriber of the rag publication which is The Washington Post to be able to read in its entirety, faults President Trump for the chaos that ensued at the violent protest in Charlottesville a few weeks ago. But not once did this hack ever even mention those who were being attacked at Trump rallies by Illegal Aliens and Bernie Sanders supporters. Nor when Former President Barack Hussein Obama fueled the racial fires by throwing his support behind, and even going as far as inviting Black Lives Matter to the White House.
‘We are the country that led the free world to victory over fascism and dispatched communism to the ash heap of history. We are the superpower that organized not an empire, but an international order of free, independent nations that has liberated more people from poverty and tyranny than anyone thought possible in the age of colonies and autocracies.’
McCain doesn’t stop with condemning just those who rallied in Charlottesville; he also has harsh words for his Congressional colleagues who could easily be seen as ignorant of the lessons to be learned from Charlottesville, choosing to occupy themselves with petty concerns like that of getting ObamaCare repealed, or else.
It’s Sen. McCain who is widely seen as having cast the deciding vote that killed the most recent round of GOP efforts to get the ACA repealed.
As McCain put it:
‘Congress will return from recess next week facing continued gridlock as we lurch from one self-created crisis to another. We are proving inadequate not only to our most difficult problems but also to routine duties… That’s not how we were meant to govern. Our entire system of government — with its checks and balances, its bicameral Congress, its protections of the rights of the minority — was designed for compromise.’
He didn’t leave it at condemnation; instead, he asserted that it’s time for Congress to pick up the slack left by the White House’s incompetence and move on from being wrapped up in the president’s bickering.
As he continued:
‘[W]e have to respect each other or at least respect the fact that we need each other. That has never been truer than today, when Congress must govern with a president who has no experience of public office, is often poorly informed and can be impulsive in his speech and conduct…. [W]e are not his subordinates. We don’t answer to him…We must be diligent in discharging our responsibility to serve as a check on his power.’
McCain’s comments can be seen in light of the fact that, as he mentioned, Congress is about to get back to work with the advent of the fall 2017 legislative session. What’s likely the most pressing issue on the horizon is that of potential spending bills — Trump has indicated he might refuse to sign a spending bill if it doesn’t include provisions for the border wall, but Congress isn’t keen on the idea of funding the thing.
McCain wants Congress to return to “regular order.” In other words, he wants for legislative issues to be hashed out in standard committees, not in secret panels like the one responsible for the most recent flop of a GOP health care bill.
We will see if Congressional leaders heed McCain’s words.
John McCain taking order from his boss George Soros!
Senator McCain, you are a very sick man, in both character and health. Not many beat the Cancer you are currently fighting. As a human being, I will pray for your well being and recovery. But as an American, I will pray for your happy retirement from public office. Because you sir, are a Cancer to this nation and have been since the day you were elected to public office. Shame on you!
Please share if you agree McCain needs to retire….
