        McCain graduated from the Naval Academy 894th of 899.

        McCain crashed 3 planes. Crashed his first plane in Corpus Christi Bay

        While training overseas, McCain sparked international controversy when he flew into power lines while hotdogging in his plane.

        McCain crashed a Navy jet while on a purely personal trip. He was bringing back Christmas presents for the family in the baggage compartment of his plane

        McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy. That catastrophe, with 27 dead and over 100 wounded. McCain deliberately “wet-started” his A-4E to shake up the guy in the plane behind his A-4. “Wet-starts”, done either deliberately or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft.

        This and the large subsequent electrical surge and weapon arming (by the pilot) caused the launching of a powerful Zuni rocket across the carrier’s deck hitting other parked planes that were packing 1,000 high-explosive pound bombs. The subsequent massive explosions, fire and destruction went several decks below and nearly sunk this major 82,000 ton U.S. aircraft carrier.

        Any other Navy pilot causing this type of death and destruction the Navy would have raped him and he would probably still be in the brig. Why not McCain? Well, first with many powerful connections this “little infraction” was covered up by the Navy (our most politically involved/connected service by the way).

        You see his grandfather was a famous FOUR STAR Navy admiral and his dad was at the time of the incident was a powerful Navy FOUR STAR admiral and McCain graduated from the Navy Academy. So the old boy Navy tradition cover his ass network went into high gear immediately; and make no mistake, it does exist and it did for him.

        http://www.theburningplatform.com/2015/07/23/mccain-the-hero-nearly-sunk-an-aircraft-carrier-killed-134-sailors/

        McCain was shot down during a bombing run in Vietnam. Fellow pilots claimed he did not follow proper procedures and was shot down due to this.

        John McCain was not tortured by his captors.

        Sera, Nguyen Tien Tran McCains prison guard. acknowledged that conditions in the prison were “tough, though not inhuman”. But, he added: “We never tortured McCain. On the contrary, we saved his life, curing him with extremely valuable medicines that at times were not available to our own wounded.”

        Tran, now 75, said McCain reached Hanoi with the worst injuries he had seen in a downed pilot. But he denied torturing him, saying it was his mission to ensure that McCain survived. As the son of the US naval commander in Vietnam, he offered a potential valuable propaganda weapon.

        Tran told Corriere that McCain was sent to hospital the day after he was brought to Hanoi and stayed there for a month. “I never lost him from sight. I was frightened a doctor or nurse might do him harm.”

        John McCain. Made taped confessions to his captors. That confession was played endlessly over the prison loudspeaker system at Hoa Lo—to try to break down other prisoners—and was broadcast over Hanoi’s state radio. Reportedly, he confessed to being a war criminal who had bombed civilian targets.

        The pressure from the families and Vietnam veterans forced the creation, in late 1991, of a Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs. The chairman was John Kerry. McCain, as a former POW, was its most pivotal member.

        While on the Senate POW committee. McCain browbeat expert witnesses who came with information about unreturned POWs.

        Family members who have personally faced McCain and pressed him to end the secrecy also have been treated to his legendary temper. He has screamed at them, insulted them, brought women to tears. Mostly his responses to them have been versions of: How dare you question my patriotism? In 1996, he roughly pushed aside a group of POW family members who had waited outside a hearing room to appeal to him, including a mother in a wheelchair.

        Four months before the 1973 peace accords. A general, Tran Van Quang, told the politburo members that Hanoi was holding 1,205 American prisoners but would keep many of them at war’s end as leverage to ensure getting war reparations from Washington.

        A new measure, known as “the McCain Bill, ”suddenly appeared. By creating a bureaucratic maze from which only a fraction of the documents could emerge—only records that revealed no POW secrets—it turned the Truth Bill on its head.

        The McCain bill became law in 1991 and remains so today. So crushing to transparency are its provisions that it actually spells out for the Pentagon and other agencies several rationales, scenarios, and justifications for not releasing any information at all—even about prisoners discovered alive in captivity. Later that year, the Senate Select Committee was created, where Kerry and McCain ultimately worked together to bury evidence.

          I’ve read that McCain has asked Obama to speak at his funeral…true or not, who knows. If so, it certainly says a great deal about his true allegiance in politics. Makes me very angry we actually financially supported him.
          Seems rather odd he didn’t ask Kerry to be a speaker if they had that much history together.
          I hope many see the utter hypocrisy in praising these people upon death…Ted Kennedy, LBJ, Senator Byrd, McCain, etc. it’s kabuki theater and for what? I hate to admit it about myself that I would be happy if McCain’s treason in Iran was unmasked before he dies so he will know he really didn’t get away with it, afterall.

    Want to post this again from the last page (posted by WeThePeople);

    Here’s how the generic ballot (Pew) has changed in the last 9-10 months. Shown as GOP/Dem/|Undecided

    JULY 2017 — 40/53/7 (-13)
    JAN 2018 — 39/53/8 (-14)
    TODAY — 43/48/9 (-05)

    This matches what we’ve seen in various special elections over time, too (a decreasing positive spread for the Democrats).

    This is why Mueller has to be accelerated, McCain’s funeral arrangements have to be announced, and so forth.

    This is very good news. We’re not done yet, but the humming economy and the tax cuts is making the GOP and Trump look a lot better at the moment.

    When the Bigly Ugly outs, the Marxists are going to be on their back foot, especially if it comes out that there are crimes involving rumored sexual deviance. We don’t know the scope of the story that is going to unfold, but it will make it much harder to raise money and push turnout if it looks like the Marxists are the party of sedition and sexually indefensible behavior.
    Suspecting what will come, I have never bought this blue wave crap.

        No, Nunes wants this information sent to Congress; however, it seems that the IG investigation needs to keep this quiet until they have a solid case.

        It occurred to me today that with the new judges slapping the Mueller case – Ellis and Friedrich – we might be seeing a shut down of a judge shopping scam that Peter Strzok would have thorough knowledge about.

        This may involve a LOT OF JUDGES.
