John McCain - The Rise And Fall Of An American 'Hero'

Authored by 'Vaniam' via The Burning Platform blog,

This is an Arizona patriot's unique view on John Sydney McCain

As of late, we the people of Arizona are very shocked to see what he has become. He is a caricature of a man who, around here, is about as popular as the ping-pong president. How could the people of Arizona, the state that brought you the O.K. Corral, the Grand Canyon, constitutional carry, and sunshine 360 days a year re-elect such a steaming lumpen pile?

The truth is that Arizona like many other states is really two states, Arizona the free and Arizona the slave. The free side is much how you would imagine a free and prosperous state. Resplendent and sublime examples of the master artist’s work are everywhere. The people out here are old school salt of the earth. Cowboys get along with Indians, bikers get along with hippies, liberals with conservatives. Its a place, as my venerated 77 year old neighbor once said to me, “everybody knows everybody’s business but minds their own.” People are kind and polite, willing to help a stranger.

The down side of Arizona is Maricopa county, or as we call it out here, “the late great state of Maricopa,” which is Phoenix and the metro areas surrounding the capitol. The geographic area is roughly ten percent of the land mass but over sixty percent of the human population. This creeping concrete jungle is dependent on the good grace of the rest of the state for its water and power.

As of late it seems this mini metropolis has been infected with the Soros self destructing ideals of wholly owned politicians, defective voting machines, and a spike in immigrants from places where we can’t even say their names. There is a mountain of circumstantial evidence that Maricopa county is compromised as far as elections go. Do you really believe that Sheriff Arpio lost the election to a cop who has always been pro illegal immigration? Or that local reported irregularities, in mainly democrat controlled precincts, somehow did not favor the Soros-Obama machine. I know, fake news right?

I have some pretty vivid memories of growing up in Arizona. We were still part of the wild west, all our roads and days seemed to stretch before us beyond the vast horizon. America still seemed on the ascendancy even though looking back we had probably reached our peak years before my birth. Even after watching in horror as we bugged out of Saigon and dumped our helicopters into the bottom of the ocean we still believed in hero’s.

In the early 1980’s the people of Arizona were sold on the heroism of John Sydney McCain. McCain moved to Arizona and was sold as a hero. The powers that be needed him to replace a genuine hero, Sen Barry Goldwater. Had we the people known at that time about his multiple affairs, divorcing his disabled wife, and marrying a beer heiress for her fortune and political connections, he would have never won his first race. The people of Maricopa county at that time were not soft shoe, plaid pants, neo cucks like the majority are today.

I will never forget McCain speaking to my high school during his first campaign. After his little speech it was opened up for questions. Most were along the lines of ‘do you like Coke or Pepsi best?’or some other inanities. When my turn came I stood up and asked “Will you give us your word as an officer and a gentleman that you are not now or will never be a member of the trilateral commission or any other organization which gives away American sovereignty?”(I was a political junkie even as a kid.) After being somewhat stunned at the question his answer was along the line of ‘Of course I would never do anything that goes against the constitution’ yada, yada, yada.

If McCain was ever a maverick looking out for the peoples’ interests this illusion came to an end once he went to the senate. He immediately started to hang out with some of the earliest known swamp creatures. Receiving over one million dollars from land swindlers who cost taxpayers over three billion dollars (in 1980’s dollars) in what many experts claim led the southwest United States into a major recession. It also cost thousands of retires their life savings which they thought were safe in real estate backed bonds. This was the beginning of the long swath of destruction that the not so honorable gentleman from Virginia continues to leave in his wake, without a clue (or a care) for the people of this world he harms.

Doddering old fool or criminally insane madman?

Insanity or madness can be described as becoming a danger to oneself or others. We can certainly prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that McCain is a danger to others. Just ask the relatives of the tens of thousands dead from the endless wars, or the relatives of the 6000 plus American KIAs in the last fifteen years. As far as being a danger to himself we may never know unless and until some brave hacker shows us how John spends his spare time. McCain has done America dirty in so many ways over the decades. We need an encyclopedia to document it all. So we will just go over some of the more egregious recent examples.

During the last government shut down Obama closed memorials and parks that belong to we the people. This was done as a mean spirited, vindictive maneuver that especially hurt WW2 vets coming to DC to see the new memorial dedicated to them. These men, who are almost all gone, were denied what to them what would have been a great honor. Some lowly park rangers put up puny little show gates for the media, that denied access to the veterans. Despite his office being hammered with calls telling him to fix this, McCain refused to do the honorable thing. He did nothing. He couldn’t be bothered. Had he shown up and demanded the veterans be allowed in he would have done a thing of a truly non partisan nature, and in some ways been heroic. Now the stain of this incident will follow him the rest of his days.

The Phoenix VA is the worst in the country. As the senior Senator on the Armed Services Committee, McCain bears full responsibility for this. Again if he had acted as an honorable man, made sure more people were fired not just given their golden government parachutes we might be going in the right direction to fix this deplorable situation. It has been 6 to 12 years (depending on your perspective) since the problems with the VA began to come to light. The waiting lists still exist. Men and women who picked up the phone when Uncle Sam called them up are still second fiddle to a self feeding, self promoting parasitic bureaucracy.

It is well documented that McCain and his little buddy have armed and funded ISIS. Many pictures of them exist yucking it up with those who would do us harm. As if we didn’t have enough enemies already it seems we need more. All in the name of full spectrum dominance by our deep state uni-party.

Presently McCain is trying to force us into an unnecessary confrontation with the Russian federation. McCain also wants war with China, North Korea, Syria, Iran, and Ukraine. McCain seems to have no concern, compassion or remorse for the tens of thousands of deaths he has been responsible for. This madness has gotten out of hand. It has created an endless loop of more death, destruction, collateral damage, and rapefuges. Throw in some reconstruction projects for his cronies a little global insecurity and a dash of ignominy on our once highly esteemed fighting forces and it becomes clear why the whole world hates us.

In light of McCain’s 35 years of “service,” after 16 years and over 6,000 military deaths from these endless wars, it might just be time to rethink our strategy. If the New York Don can keep landing blows against the fake media, as he wins a few more hearts and minds, at some point the governor of the universe may once again see America as worthy of the eternal blessings of liberty, then divine providence will enable us to smite this vile depravity known as the deep state uni-party.

McCain needs to go to all 152 homes in Arizona who have lost loved ones in the endless wars. Starting at my friends house, his 22 year old son was killed by an IED near Taji Iraq in 2006.McCain should kneel and grovel in each darkened doorway with his face down buns up, begging forgiveness from the families of his victims.

Seriously dude 35 years is a long time. Any “good work’ you might have done at one time has long since been nullified by the endless war years. If you haven’t achieved whatever it was you originally set out to do, at 80 years old you never will.. If you haven’t amassed all the filthy lucre your family will need after your gone I am afraid you are out of luck.

McCain is still a great American hero, which is why all the Russian mouthpieces are trying to put him down.

BREAKING! Documents Show Obama Surveiled Entire Trump Family For 8 Years

SUrely CNN and NYT will give wide and accurate coverage to this breaking story (after saying it wasn't so).

Now maybe Russ Tice's interview with RT awhile back about NSA widespread surveillance upon all American citizens will garner some attention.

Just an updated application to the decades- ago internal spying op both supervised by and described by Green Beret Colonel Cutolo before he was  assassinated.

In fact, the slaughter of Green Beret colonels Nick Rowe, Bayard, Malvesti, Baker, along with the later assassination of Colonel Carone were all tied into this.

Cutolo's affadavit, along with the deposition from Carone's daughter -all viewable online - describes these long-running atrocities.

Songbird stabbed his fellow prisoners of war in the back, just like he continues to do to the American people of this Country. He's killed more U.S. servicemen single-handily than most of our single enemy adversaries. Which leads me to believe he is a murderous traitor who deserves a firing squad. Many good fellow soldiers lost their lives because of this hot-head coward.

John McCain has yet to answer for the USS Forrestal, and all the multimillion dollar jets he wrecked before he got shot down and got the co-pilot killed.

We still never got the real story about his time in Hanoi.

He passes out weapons like candy to Syrian serial killers and he gets away with it.

Somebody has very nasty AV, pix, and or documents on McCain.

What we see of him is bad enough but what we don't see is much worse.

McCain is a disgrace to the Navy.

McCain became an Israel-first neocon. And everyone who becomes thus is CURSED and will likewise fall, America as a whole included.

And it is so very interesting how the Deep State and their CIA flying monkeys are hitting Trump with everything they have but they don't bother with McCain.

He's one of them.

Instead of telling us Russian fairy tales and waving dusty old tax returns the MSM concubines could tell us about McCain's transcripts at Annapolis.

Now that would make for an interesting story. 

Actually McCain is going full speed after Trump. he's on a mission to attack him at every opportunity, like he's really desperate to do some damage.

The question is why and for whom, because it surely ain't for us or for America's benefit. 

Have we ever seen him work this hard even once in his degenerate life over anything that did not benefit his own power and money?

Someone drums and he dances.

You would think someone who is a "war" hero, would realize that War should be the LAST resort, not the FIRST.  Fuck that peice of shit garbage that wants to get us all killed.

BarkingCat's picture

How many missions did he fly before getting shot down?


Besides the Air Force guys have no real idea about war. Not if the enemy is a 3rd world nation.

The only ones that get a somewhat real sample are Army and Marines. 

However even they only experience War Lite. Last time US forces had major casualties was in Vietnam. 

Many servicemen came back traumatized but when compared to the Vietnamese they had it easy.

Imagine what it would have been like for them if the North Vietnamese had the ability to remove US's air superiority. 

Imagine if instead of the US planes and helicopters ruling the skies, it was the other way around.


McCain experienced none of that.   He was an idiot when he was young and obviously is an even bigger idiot as an old man.

With a name like Sydney I can see why he gets along soooooo fasionably well with Lindsey.

Juan Mcinsane, was a lousy pilot. I read somewhere he lost 2 jets here in the US, before the One he lost aboard the USS Forristal, and the one he lost when he was shot down in Nam. There were many NCO's and Private grunts (If they were kept alive) that were POW's too, that didn't come home screaming "hero".   respect.

1. USS forrestal fire that killed 20 US sailers, injured over 100 US sailers, and put the carrier at risk of sinking because of Pilot McCain's reckless behavor. Since his Father was in important figure, the incident was covered up, other wise McCain would had been serving a life sentence.

2. 1980's S&L Crisis (part of the Keating five)

McCain is no hero Period!

Everytime I see a picture of McCain, Polosi, Obama, Feinstein, Holder, Clinton, etc , my blood pressure goes right up.

I don't even have to read anything about these people. They are all DESPOTS with a REPROBATE MIND.

@ yovatti:

One loses all credibility the moment they consider McStain to be a hero of any kind.

Thanks for your imbecilic opinion. New readers and young people who are new to these issues really need to see opinions from the ignorant imbecillic left (and right) so they can see the contrast in views and opinions between intelligent posters and idiots such as yourself. I apologize for my  offensive words, as I really do believe you serve an important function on this Board. Keep posting. Your comments are truly appreciated  -regardless of how moronic they may be.

Put him down with lethal injection.

He's a liberal. He has liberal policies, he backs his ideal with liberals, liberals leak their liberal lies to him and he gets all crazy, and he whines like a snowflake. He doesn't need to retire, he needs 6 bouncers to toss him like a frisbee out of DC.

Arizona is full of idiots. If it werent, this dipshit would be replaced by a conservative.

Hero????   He's been responsible for more American soldier deaths than anyone since Hitler-  fuck him and his BS war record-  Ever since Trump called out his ass, he's been a complete hell-bent retard.

What is wrong with the good people of Arizona who keep re-electing this shithead neocon?

Same thing that's wrong with Kornifornians who keep re-electing shitlings Boxer, Finesteen, Piglosi, et al.


Whatever that is.

John McCain is a Keating Five scumbag.

Quashing the effort to investigate the Vietnam War POW's is unconscionable. Occasionally I look at Voat. They have some posts about him on their website. It is all "speculative" but...

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

John McCain is a traitor, warmonger, and ought to be arrested and tried for arming al qaeda linked terror groups.

In fact, Trump's admin should collect evidence of McCain's illegal trips abroad and arrest and prosecute him.


Sadly, Trump's more concerned with starting a war with Iran, for Israel.

Kushner is literally an Israeli agent.

I'm going to go way out on a limb here and speculate that our creator decided to intervene to save the experiment.  I am in total agreement with that decision. Now I'm going to pour another drink. For myself.
