Songbird McCain Sings No More – His Toyko Rose circa 1969 audio

 

Just who was John McCain? I for one am done with the McCain extravaganza. Let’s take a look at a few myths. First his song and then a bit of his life. What we are watching is the making of a myth.

 

Apparently this recording was not released officially by the US Government, but was discovered inadvertently by someone searching through the US Archives and was mislabeled as something else. Notes to follow.

 

 

Transcript: To the Vietnamese people and the Government of the DRVN I’m John Sydney McCain 624787, Lieutenant Commander US Navy. Born 29 August 1936 Panama, home state (unaudible) Shot down 26 October 1967 A4 Aircraft.

I as a US Airman am Guilty of Crimes against the Vietnamese country and people. I have bombed their cities, towns and villages and caused many injuries, even death to the people of Vietnam. I was captured in the Capitol of Hanoi while attacking it.

After I was captured I was (inaudible) for the hospital in Hanoi where I received very good medical treatement. I was given an operation on my leg which allowed me to walk again and a cast on my right arm which was badly broken in three places.

The doctors were very good and they knew a great deal about the practice of medicine. I remained in the hospital for sometime and regained much of my health and strength. Since I arrived in the camp of detention, I have received humane and (inaudible) treatment. I received this good treatment and food, even though I came here as an aggressor and the people who I injured have much difficulty in their living standards.

I wish to express my deep gratitude for my kind treatment and I will never forget this kindness extended to me.

 

How about a little about his first wife? Written when he was running for President.

 

The wife U.S. Republican John McCain callously left behind

McCain likes to illustrate his moral fibre by referring to his five years as a prisoner-of-war in Vietnam. And to demonstrate his commitment to family values, the 71-year-old former US Navy pilot pays warm tribute to his beautiful blonde wife, Cindy, with whom he has four children.

But there is another Mrs McCain who casts a ghostly shadow over the Senator’s presidential campaign. She is seldom seen and rarely written about, despite being mother to McCain’s three eldest children.

And yet, had events turned out differently, it would be she, rather than Cindy, who would be vying to be First Lady. She is McCain’s first wife, Carol, who was a famous beauty and a successful swimwear model when they married in 1965. …snip

But when McCain returned to America in 1973 to a fanfare of publicity and a handshake from Richard Nixon, he discovered his wife had been disfigured in a terrible car crash three years earlier. Her car had skidded on icy roads into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered by the impact and she suffered massive internal injuries.

For nearly 30 years, Carol has maintained a dignified silence about the accident, McCain and their divorce. But last week at the bungalow where she now lives at Virginia Beach, a faded seaside resort 200 miles south of Washington, she told The Mail on Sunday how McCain divorced her in 1980 and married Cindy, 18 years his junior and the heir to an Arizona brewing fortune, just one month later.

Snip

‘My marriage ended because John McCain didn’t want to be 40, he wanted to be 25. You know that happens…it just does.’

Some of McCain’s acquaintances are less forgiving, however. They portray the politician as a self-centred womaniser who effectively abandoned his crippled wife to ‘play the field’. They accuse him of finally settling on Cindy, a former rodeo beauty queen, for financial reasons.

McCain was then earning little more than £25,000 a year as a naval officer, while his new father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was a multi-millionaire who had impeccable political connections.

He first met Carol in the Fifties while he was at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. He was a privileged, but rebellious scion of one of America’s most distinguished military dynasties – his father and grandfather were both admirals.

But setting out to have a good time, the young McCain hung out with a group of young officers who called themselves the ‘Bad Bunch’.

His primary interest was women and his conquests ranged from a knife-wielding floozy nicknamed ‘Marie, the Flame of Florida’ to a tobacco heiress.Fulls story at Daily Mail

Then let’s throw this in for good measure:

John McCain and George Soros – happy together, won’t say where $6 Mil came from

What we do know, thanks to an investigation by The Daily Caller, is that the McCain Institute for International Leadership received a VERY GENEROUS donation from none other than George Soros.

The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain. It “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom”. It is also a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.

John McCain turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

Sarah Palin Banned from McCain Funeral

 

Now I have had enough of the McCain traveling casket road show. Not wanting any bad juju, I was determined to stay off the topic. Alas, I did stray and left a comment over at Always on Watch called Insufferable Self-righteousness

Just imagine if a U.S. Senator or other major federal governmental official had designed his funeral to exclude Barack Hussein Obama!

 

My comment :

It shows even in death his ego rides on. First he lies in the AZ State capitol.  Then on to the D.C capitol. He must think that the mass of humanity wants to witness the event,

Instructions that will be sure to catch media attention as he tries to stick it to Trump one last time. It ends as contemptible as the rest of his saga.

Now the final coup de grâce. Embarrasses the one person that added some zing to McCain’s otherwise moribund Presidential Race. My Sarah.

John? You there? How about the first wife and kids? Did you banish them too as an unfortunate happening and not to be part of your side-show? You left her and the kids after her severe accident. After she tolerated your womanizing?

John McCain’s First Wife on the Pain of Him Leaving Her for Cindy …

 

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral.

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family.

The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announcedas McCain’s pick for Vice President.

Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.

Last year, when McCain was reported to have said that he regretted choosing Palin instead of Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-VT), Palin described the news as a “gut punch” but refused to blame McCain personally, telling the UK Daily Mail that she blamed his “ghostwriters” for such reports.

Still, Palin never took offense, and always honored McCain. Even after being excluded from the funeral, she declined to criticize him.

People quoted a source close to the Palin family: “[O]ut of respect for Sen. McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point. The Palin family will always cherish their friendship with the McCains and hold those memories dear.”

Chinese Govt. Killed and Imprisoned 18-20 CIA Spies After Penetrating Hillary Clinton’s Private Server

 

Meanwhile, back in real time, we learn more of Hillary’s episode of using a home grown server that may have cost many CIA operatives in China. While it still is Russia Russia Russia, we would do better casting our eyes a bit further to the East and deal with Hillary and China.

You would think we would be looking at the infamous driver for Feinstein who too was a spy. How will we get others to help us as informers and spies if we care so little about taking care of our secrets?

 

Hillary’s carelessness and criminal actions may have led to the deaths of 20 CIA operatives in China.

The Chinese government killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 CIA operatives in China from 2010 to 2012.

 

At the same time a Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C., area hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server throughout her term as secretary of state.

The Chinese government was obtaining Hillary Clinton’s emails in real time.

Romanian hacker “Guccifer” told FOX News reporter Catherine Herridge, in an exclusive interview in 2016, that he hacked Hillary Clinton’s server and that it was easy. 

The Daily Caller reported that a Chinese company in Washington DC penetrated Hillary Clinton’s private server and obtained her emails in real time.

The FBI and Peter Strzok were reportedly notified about the breach and did nothing.

The Daily Caller reported.

And the FBI refused to act.

The Chinese government murdered or imprisoned 18-20 CIA sources from 2010 to 2012 while Feinstein had a Chinese spy as her office manager.

Business Insider reported.

China killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 CIA sources from 2010 to 2012, hobbling U.S. spying operations in a massive intelligence breach whose origin has not been identified, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Investigators remain divided over whether there was a spy within the Central Intelligence Agency who betrayed the sources or whether the Chinese hacked the CIA’s covert communications system, the newspaper reported, citing current and former U.S. officials.

The Chinese killed at least a dozen people providing information to the CIA from 2010 through 2012, dismantling a network that was years in the making, the newspaper reported.

One was shot and killed in front of a government building in China, three officials told the Times, saying that was designed as a message to others about working with Washington. More at  Gateway Pundit

But then again, recall this?

Lanny Davis admits lying about about CNN blockbuster Trump Tower story

 

Just two precious to let this story go by without comment. Lanny Davis caught telling a little fib. Actually a big fib. Oh how the media was howling with delight. But few if any are following the “rest of the story.” Note in the clip how crestfallen Anderson Cooper appears! Recall this was the start of the GO FUND ME pass the collection plate for Cohen. What a coincidence.

 

  • Lanny Davis, the attorney for Michael Cohen, has dropped another bombshell, this time on CNN.
  • Davis told BuzzFeed that he was one of the anonymous sources for CNN’s July 27 report alleging that Cohen had information that Trump approved of the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016. 
  • Davis admits that he lied last week when he denied being a source. CNN is standing by its report. 

Lanny Davis has acknowledged that he was an anonymous source for CNN for a now-debunked story published in July claiming that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is willing to tell the special counsel’s office that President Donald Trump had foreknowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting.

Davis, a Clinton-connected public relations guru who is representing Cohen, admitted to BuzzFeed News on Monday that he was a source for CNN’s story, which appeared on July 27.

The report cited “sources with knowledge” of Cohen’s comments who claimed that he was in a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. when he told his father about a meeting set up with a group of Russians offering dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Davis undercut the story in an interview on Wednesday with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Davis said that the original CNN report got “mixed up,” and that Cohen does not know whether Trump had advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting.

“So Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after?” Cooper asked Davis.

“No, he does not,” replied Davis.

Davis also asserted that “we were not the source of the story.”

But Davis now says that he “made a mistake.” And regarding his denial to Cooper about being a CNN source, he said that “I did not mean to be cute.”

While Davis has apologized for his role in spreading the story, CNN is standing by its report, which was authored by former Obama administration official Jim Sciutto, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Carl Bernstein and Marshall Cohen.

Here is a clip just put out by the Washington Post. Note not once to they include the final nail in the coffin. That being that it was Davis himself that put the whole ball rolling and was the so-called “anonymous” source.

 

 

Rosenstein Moved Cohen Case to New York – Then Ordered Trump-Appointed US Attorney Geoffrey Berman to Recuse Himself

 

This wasn’t rocket science to figure out when Mueller moved some of the investigation to New York that the plan was to keep at Trump into perpetuity. What we didn’t figure that he would make sure that Trump’s pick to head  up the office would be neutered and removed. Obama sycophants continue the war and attempt to destroy Trump and everyone he knew. Keep in mind this was the same office that charged De Souza. What is the matter with Berman to agree to it? How about Sessions?

Trump appointed attorney Geoffrey Berman recused himself from the investigation into Michael Cohen.

Wired Sources got this information from a New York Post article by Michael Goodwin.

The US attorney Trump appointed for that outpost, Geoffrey Berman, reportedly was ordered to recuse himself by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, leaving the office staffed mostly by holdovers from Preet Bharara’s tenure.

Bloomberg reported on the latest tactics to get Trump in the Southern District of New York.
Bloomberg reported:

Khuzami was put in charge of the Cohen investigation after the U.S. attorney who Trump appointed to lead the office, Geoffrey Berman, recused himself. It’s unclear why Berman did so, but he previously worked in the law firm of Greenberg Traurig LLP, which also employed Rudy Giuliani, a top Trump campaign supporter who’s now his personal lawyer.

Berman was appointed by Trump after the president fired prosecutor Preet Bharara in March 2017.Bharara, who was appointed by President Barack Obama and won fame for prosecuting insider-trading cases, has become a scathing critic of Trump on social media and a podcast…

…And while New York prosecutors are required to notify the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section if they want to pursue election fraud cases, there haven’t been any signs of tension between the office and Justice Department headquarters with regard to the Cohen investigation, the person said.

Rosenstein made the decision to give the Cohen case to SDNY following a referral from Mueller.That also ensured the investigation could continue even if Trump somehow managed to fire the special counsel, a politically dangerous move that many Republicans have warned the president to avoid.

Here is a list from Vox that Mueller’s evil enterprise has in mind and investigating.

  • The Trump Organization: Early this year, Mueller’s team subpoenaed Trump’s business for documents, including some related to Russia, the New York Times reported.
  • Russian oligarchs: Mueller’s team surprised two Russian oligarchs at US airports this year, and questioned them about their ties to people in Trump’s orbit. He seized electronic devices from one oligarch.
  • The Trump campaign’s digital operation: Mueller’s team interviewed people involved with Trump’s digital team with an eye toward understanding whether they’d coordinated with Russian online efforts, Yahoo News and ABC News have reported.
  • Trump’s inauguration: The special counsel has also investigated Russia-tied donations to Trump’s inaugural committee, and the “unusual access” that certain Russians got to inaugural events, per ABC News.
  • The Seychelles meeting and Gulf money: Shortly before Trump’s inauguration, a donor of his (Erik Prince) held a mysterious meeting in Seychelles with a Russian fund manager. The meeting was facilitated by the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates and his adviser, George Nader. It has also emerged that after Don Jr.’s Russian meeting at Trump Tower, he held another meeting about election assistance — with Prince and Nader. Mueller’s team served Nader with a subpoena in the US and has brought him before the grand jury. Keep an eye on this one.
  • Roger Stone’s associates: Particularly in the past few months, Mueller has sought to question many people in the orbit of longtime on-and-off Trump adviser Roger Stone. Stone was in contact with WikiLeaks and the Guccifer 2.0 persona (which was run by Russian intelligence) during the campaign, making him a figure of interest in the question of whether Trump associates were involved in the release of those stolen Democratic emails.
  • Obstruction of justice: On top of that, there is Mueller’s investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice while in office — in pressuring then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn, later firing Comey, pressuring Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a plethora of other actions. The special counsel’s team interviewed many current and former White House and administration officials about these topics last year.
  • The presidential interview: Finally, Mueller’s team requested back in January that President Trump agree to an interview. We know from a list of leaked questions that the special counsel wants to ask about collusion, obstruction of justice, and Trump’s ties to Russia generally. The president has spent about seven months refusing to agree to this request since. Read more at  Vox

Mueller: Not sure if government can assassinate Americans on U.S. soil

 

Here is a flashback for Saturday. The left is worried about Trump’s stability. How about former FBI Director Mueller? From 2012. Just for the record.

 

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.

Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.

“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.

Holder argued in his remarks that it is “simply not accurate” that the president must get permission from a federal court before taking action against a United States citizen terrorist.

“Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process,” he said.
