McCain: "The New World Order Is Under Enormous Strain"

Tyler Durden's picture

It was a bumper day for John McCain when on Friday Donald Trump's Republican nemesis gloated as Trump's "art of the deal" collapsed in the last minute, after the President and Ryan-led effort to repeal Obamacare suffered what appears to be a terminal setback. In the wake of Trump's misfortune, McCain renewed his calls on Friday for a return to a legacy neocon status quo, when speaking at the Brussels forum, said that the world "cries out for American and European leadership" through the EU and Nato, and said that the EU and the US needed to develop "more cooperation, more connectivity".

In a "new world order under enormous strain" and in "the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can't stand by and lament, we've got to be involved," said McCain who is now chairman of the armed services committee in the US Senate, quoted by the EU Observer. "I trust the EU," he said, defending an opposite view from that of US president Donald Trump, who said in January that the UK "was so smart in getting out" of the EU and that Nato was "obsolete". He said that the EU was "one of the most important alliances" for the US and that the EU and Nato were "the best two sums in history", which have maintained peace for the last 70 years.

Further attacking Trump's global worldview, McCan said that "we need to rely on Nato and have a Nato that adjusts to new challenges." He noted that "the EU has too many bureaucrats, not much bureaucracy," but added that "it's not the only place on earth with that problem." He said that he was "still wondering what the overall effect of Brexit will be" and that he did not know "if this is the beginning of a serious problem for the EU". McCain did not disagree, however, with Trump's demand that European countries increase their defense spending for Nato.

McCain also revealed he hasn’t met the President Donald Trump in person since he took office, and he urged Trump to reach out to his opponents—Democratic and otherwise—ala Ronald Reagan if he wants to repeal Obamacare. “Do some outreach. Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however.

“He doesn’t seem to be that upset that he’s not talking to him,” said German Marshall Fund’s Derek Chollet, a former Obama Pentagon official. “He’s trying to run U.S. defense policy through Mattis and effectively ignore Trump.”

That said, McCain also said it was "too early" to pass judgment on his presidency, although his series of critical comments in recent weeks have demonstrated his growing skepticism about the Trump administration.

Furthermore, while McCain said he was "very pleased" by Trump's picks for his national security team - despite suggesting that they were being bypassed by more ideological and less competent people - he took the opportunity to attack Trump's decisionmaking, saying "the question is: who does the president listen to, who drives the tweets at 6 in morning?”, he said.Asked whether he thought that "Russia owns a significant part of the White House," he said: "I don't worry about that."

The unspoken suggestion: Russia.

What worries McCain, he said, was "the Russian role in our elections", even if he admitted that he has seen "no evidence they succeeded” in affecting the outcome of last year's US vote. Noting that Russia was now trying to influence elections in France and in Germany, he said that if it succeeded it would be "a death warrant for democracy".

"It's an act of destruction that is certainly more lethal than dropping some bombs," he insisted. McCain, a Russia hawk, said that Putin wanted to restore the Russian empire: “He wants the Baltics, he has taken Crimea, he's been in Ukraine."


"These are KBG thugs, my friends," he said, referring to the former Russian spy service for which Putin used to work. He added that the US needed to "respond accordingly". He said however that there was "nothing wrong" if Trump met Putin.

"I'm not against meeting," he said, reminding the Brussels forum that US presidents met Soviet leaders during the Cold War. But he added that "the best way to go to a meeting is with a strong hand" and that was not the case for the US right now.

"McCain did not disagree, however, with Trump's demand that European countries increase their defense spending for Nato."

Increasing military spending anywhere is absurd. It only facilitates psychopathic politicians like McCain to support crazy wars and fight self-created terrorism.

We still remember the photos of your meeting with ISIS, McCain.

The man is senile.  Honestly, how does a man this out of touch, run the arms services committee?

Tell me McCain, were we at Peace when you were a prisoner of "War"?  If we were at "peace" what's this damn Bronze medal you asses sent my brother and I in the 80s that says POW/MIA on it?  If we were at peace, why is there an empty grave in Arlington with my fathers name on it?

Maybe McCain reads ZH.  If so, the eldest son of Homer Eugene McKay says FUCK YOU, you piece of SHIT!

McCain's speech is DEMONIC. This article sends chills down my spine. He needs to STAND DOWN, SHUT UP, LISTEN and LEARN or be REMOVED from OFFICE. He is not the POTUS.

Totally. He needs to be tortured for real this time... and by the very American citizens he's been fucking over for so long.

(I may be a sick bastard, but I fantasize about rounding up these corrupt-ass politicians in a domestic, patriot-operated black site, donning the black hood, and doing to them what one does in a black site....)

Gay leads to pedophile, I've seen that up close in San Francisco.

Its the next step for those who must "Do What Thou Wilt"

Mike Cernovich says this was a setup to get even with Paul Ryan. It was called Ryancare for a reason, it was built to fail.

Makes sense, Freedom Caucus gave Trump standing ovation then killed it as planned.

Why? Trump didn't run on repeal Obamacare, he ran on "build the wall" "Make Mexico Pay" "Lock her up" nobody was chanting repeal and replace at the rallies. Now Trump has leverage to build the wall. When does it happen? When the next terror attack takes place in America. McCain, Ryan, Democrats, Resistance movement, Schumer, Judiciary will be blamed and he will steamroll over all of them to build the wall.

He said deepstate has real dirt on Ryan, said pedophile Dennis Hastert gave Paul Ryan $25,000. Said Senator Ben Sasse tutored the Congressional Page program but won't talk about it.

I just watched that Cernovich video last night too... interesting stuff.

Sounds like Ryan set himself up by pushing a bad bill. Louie Gohmert said that even though there were listening sessions in which changes to the bill were proposed and discussed, no changes happened. The bill gave outrageous power to the HHS sec'y in perpetuity. (You could have someone in the mould of John McCain in that office some day.) When the Freedom Caucus asked about why no changes were made, they were told that the parliamentarian in the Senate would not accept a bill with changes. When Senator Mike Lee asked the parliamentarian about this, he was told there would not be a problem.

Trump and the Freedom Caucus and others were lied to by someone who was anxious to get this bad bill passed through the House.

As for the standing ovation, the Freedom Caucus members had wanted to get Trump into a room so that they could have a discussion. Ryan and others had been filtering the information about the bill and its level of acceptance among House members. If Trump wanted the bill to fail, he may have gained that view during the meeting with the Freedom Caucus.

The House needs to go back to the drawing board to draft better legislation and to find a better Speaker.

I dunno, it was always bandied about in places like Fortune magazine, which had pretty wide circulation.

I see it more as "the NWO is already in place, but Trump is threatening to remove it, so we call on the little guy to help us defend this wonderful NWO from the forces of populism." Of course, how tone deaf of a statement is that? The NWO IS here already, but what has it given to us that would motivate any of us to fight for it?

rosiescenario's picture used to be un-P/C to mention it, but now thet talk openly.

Of course McCain won't turn down anyone who is buying weapons, friend or foe. More wood for the fire to keep that cold blooded reptiles evil soul warm.

JM's after the Anheuser-Busch/InBev BV booze franchise monopolies, which accrue through his wife, so he can't be convicted and imprisoned

for starting MENA wars booze franchises and the 1,000 overseas USA bases booze franchises. Propose a bill that eliminates booze vending on

all US military bases, foreign and domestic, and you will see John McCain calling down the wrath of Allah on the Non-Imbibers. He's a Big Con.

Every dollar you spend on Anheuser-Busch/InBev BV is an incinerated corpse in a 3W hellhole, or a body bag returning to CONUS on a C-130.

Offense* spending is a symptom, not a cause in itself.  Without continuous borrowing a debt based monetary system collapses in on itself in short order.  The surfs have reached debt saturation, and the borrower of last resort needs something to spend the funds on.  (LOL at spending it on the serfs - you want them to be able to buy their way out of slavery?)  The most bang (pun intended) for the buck is something that produces no capital asset, creates further demand (broken windows), is consumed completely and needs replacing, as well as creates a work program for the surfs to keep them from rebelling while giving them an outlet to release their anger.  Sadly for humanity War, Inc. fits all those things too nicely.

What we have isn't a war monger problem, but a monetary system problem.

*We haven't been in an actual defensive posture in my lifetime, so lets call a spade a spade.

It's gotten to the point where we need to import massive amounts of 3rd world refugees in the hopes that they can become new debt slaves to prop this all up.  Crazy.

you're too kind

most of his nerve cells are dead in that walking carcas of his, he'll barely feel a thing.

he needs to be publicly humiliated and then executed in a way like his isis buddies would do.

a Quadaffi or Hussein ending should do the trick

his name has to be completely destroyed so that all of his efforts in life were for nothing.

If God wanted to prove unequivocably that God exists, as a tease to the disbelievers, then Rodman meeting Gaddafi's fate, with a bayonet planted firmly up her ugly bits, while William Jefferson is being waterboarded with pig urine until he squealed out, "She came, she saw, she died, haww, haww, haww', would create the greatest mass Shock and Celebration in all human history, and Everlasting Peace on Earth afterwards, because every Leader would know that's their fate if they f'cuk up one more time.

Public leader anal bayonetting! It's the New World Democracy! Brutal death for one, and peaceful life for a million? Let's do a pilot test with JM.

It is a lot more than just McCain, in the compormised .gov they are RINO NEO LIBs, Fake SJWs, and 1 Independendent, whose plan for free everything was a backup plan to collapse US, without true economic and monetary reform, which most of you do not get because the death cult infiltrated education, and even history itself. Law too. Oh well, it is unraveling, have a listen and watch the vid series. It is huge, but still only the visible part now, of a very old giant iceberg.

Speaking of iceberg, think of it like a head of lettuce, or perhaps cabbage.

This is Sparta!
