McCain Left Infuriating Letter To America Before He Died To Be Read Now After He’s Gone

Published

on

As the now late Senator John McCain (AZ-R) is mourned and eulogized since his weekend passing, many talking heads in the mainstream media have been quick to canonize him as some sort of warrior statesman, the great “warrior politician” worthy of emulation as some sort of secular civic saint.

There were two John McCains. One was the fictional, well-curated political image of a straight-talking, principled maverick war hero who disdained politics and partisanship in favor of doing he believed was the right thing. This is image being eulogized and propagated by the mainstream media currently.

That other image of John McCain that lived in a little place called reality, was a warmongering political hack that seemingly parroted whatever media talking point was expedient at the moment, often to the detriment of the American people. One of President Donald Trump’s harshest critics and instrumental in the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, he hand-delivering the salacious and fictional “Steele dossier” to former FBI Director James Comey, leading the charge into the investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election. This dossier was used as the basis for the FISA warrants that were used to spy on the Trump campaign and a host of additional government malfeasance in a concerted effort to overthrow a duly elected American president.

As they often do, the media attempts to whitewash and gloss over unfavorable attributes if the person is deemed to be useful in pushing the narrative of the moment. McCain is currently useful to the media, even in death, due to his abject hatred of all things Trump. Yet as the media often does as the propagate works of fiction, they seem to forget that research is not just a one-way street and not all of us have short memories. In fact, some of us still remember when the media hated all things McCain during the 2008 Presidential election when McCain was running against former President Barack Obama.

However, as is often said, facts do not care about feelings and accuracy matters. Many have noted throughout the years of McCain’s lengthy political career, it was significantly marked by jarring flip-flops and malleable principles. He was opposed to former President George W. Bush’s NSA wiretap program before he supported it. He defended the estate tax before he harshly criticized it. He vaguely opposed torture but undermined legislative efforts to stop it. He claimed opposition to the current head of the CIA – Gina Haspel during the nomination process, yet supported the former head of the CIA – John Brennan for the exact same policies.

He embraced Social Security privatization before saying otherwise — twice. McCain also caused much bitterness and animosity amongst the American people when he chose to return to the Senate in July 2017 after emergency brain surgery to become the deciding vote that killed the GOP’s repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

Some would simply dismiss all that saying that positions evolve over time. While that is true to some degree, most career politicians do not carefully craft their entire image around that of being principled and honest merely to shift like the sand with regards to the cause of the moment in a seemingly arbitrary fashion.

Now it seems McCain is not quite done with the American people, reaching out posthumously from the grave to speak to Americans one last time.

The Atlantic reports –

“On Monday morning in Arizona, Senator John McCain’s former campaign manager Rick Davis, acting as a spokesperson for the McCain family, read aloud the text of the late senator’s final letter to the public. “These are John’s words,” he said. What follows is a transcription of what Davis read:

My fellow Americans, whom I have gratefully served for 60 years, and especially my fellow Arizonians, thank you for the privilege of serving you, and for the rewarding life that service in uniform and in public office has allowed me to lead.

I’ve tried to serve our country honorably. I’ve made mistakes, but I hope my love for America will be weighed favorably against them. I’ve often observed that I am the luckiest person on Earth. I feel that way even now, as I prepare for the end of my life. I’ve loved my life, all of it. I’ve had experiences, adventures, friendships, enough for 10 satisfying lives, and I am so thankful. Like most people, I have regrets. But I would not trade a day of my life in good or bad times for the best day of anybody else’s.

I owe this satisfaction to the love of my family. One man has never had a more loving wife or children he was prouder of than I am of mine. And I owe it to America to be connected to America’s causes: Liberty, equal justice, and respect for the dignity of all people brings happiness more sublime than life’s fleeting pleasures. Our identities and sense of worth were not circumscribed, but are enlarged by serving good causes bigger than ourselves.

Fellow Americans, that association has meant more to me than any other. I lived and died a proud American. We are citizens of the world’s greatest republic, a nation of ideals, not blood and soil. We are blessed and are a blessing to humanity when we uphold and advance those ideals at home and in the world. We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history, and we have acquired great wealth and power in the progress.

We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down; when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.

We are 325 million opinionated, vociferous individuals. We argue and compete and sometimes even vilify each other in our raucous public debates. But we have always had so much more in common with each other than in disagreement. If only we remember that and give each other the benefit of the presumption that we all love our country, we will get through these challenging times. We will come through them stronger than before, we always do.

Ten years ago I had the privilege to concede defeat in the election for president. I want to end my farewell to you with heartfelt faith in Americans that I felt so powerfully that evening. I feel it powerfully still.

Do not despair of our present difficulties. We believe always in the promise and greatness of America because nothing is inevitable here. Americans never quit, we never surrender, we never hide from history. We make history. Farewell fellow Americans, God bless you, and God bless America.”

BREAKING: Justice Department Preparing To PROSECUTE Assange – About To Get UGLY

Published

on

...

* By

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Governor Palin:

It is being reported that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could be prosecuted by the United States Justice Department due to his influence and the influence of WikiLeaks in releasing classified or otherwise pertinent national security information.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a potential trial would happen in an American courtroom, although the potential charges brought against Assange were not specified.

From the Daily Caller:

The 47-year-old Australian national is living under asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

The Trump DOJ has considered charging Assange with crimes related to Wikileaks’ disclosures of classified cables stolen by ex-Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning. Assange could also face charges related to the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Wikileaks published the pilfered documents before the 2016 presidential election. Special counsel Robert Mueller charged 12 Russian intelligence agents with hacking the documents and releasing them through Wikileaks.

Some people suspected Assange received the stolen information from Russian sources, though he denied the claim.

Reuters reports the sealed indictment against Assange may have been released accidentally:

The document, which prosecutors say was filed by mistake, asks a judge to seal documents in a criminal case unrelated to Assange, and carries markings indicating it was originally filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia in August.

A source familiar with the matter said the document was initially sealed but unsealed this week for reasons that are unclear at the moment.

And:

U.S. officials had no comment on the disclosure in the document about a sealed indictment of Assange, the charges facing whom are unclear.

The document is part of an unrelated criminal case involving a 29-year-old man charged with enticing a 15-year-old girl. In that case, the judge wrote in a detention memo that the defendant, Seitu Sulayman Kokayi, “has had a substantial interest in terrorist acts.”

“The court filing was made in error. That was not the intended name for this filing,” said Joshua Stueve, the prosecutors’ office spokesman.

Reuters added that anything “short of sealing will not adequately protect the needs of law enforcement at this time because, due to the sophistication of the defendant, and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged,” the document said.

And, per the report: “The complaint, supporting affidavit, and arrest warrant, as well as this motion and the proposed order, would need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter.”

Here’s even more on the case, via the Wall Street Journal:

An indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller that portrayed WikiLeaks as a tool of Russian intelligence for releasing thousands of hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 presidential campaign has made it more difficult for Mr. Assange to mount a defense as a journalist. Public opinion of Mr. Assange in the U.S. has dropped since the campaign.

Prosecutors have considered publicly indicting Mr. Assange to try to trigger his removal from the embassy, the people said. A detailed explanation of the evidence against Mr. Assange could give Ecuadorean authorities a reason to turn him over, they said.

The exact charges the Justice Department might pursue remain unclear, but they may involve the Espionage Act, which criminalizes the disclosure of national defense-related information.

Angry Citizens Don’t Want Invader Caravan In Their Town – Serve Them Texas Sized Justice!

Published

on

...

* By

The scouting party for the first migrant caravan has now arrived at the US-Mexican border. They are camped out on the beach on the Mexican side. Somewhere between 750 and 900 illegal aliens are now awaiting the larger caravan before pushing for entry into the US. The Mexican government has opened a temporary shelter for them.

This group is in Playas de Tijuana, which is an upscale neighborhood. The residents there don’t want them there and flatly told them to get out. The angry residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved flags. They got into fights with the migrants as well. The police pretty much just watched. But they are cool with the invaders crossing into the US.

Sarah Palin has more on this story:

Over the last week, hundreds of members of the migrant caravan arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border, forming an encampment on the beach on the Mexican side of the border. These members joined the several hundred which were already there—about 750 in total— waiting for the remainder of the group before progressing any further.

In an effort to help, the Mexican government opened a temporary shelter for the caravan so they would not have to stay on the beach. Because the new housing option could only fit about 360 migrants on thin mattresses in an indoor basketball court, the caravan refused to leave their post on the beach. The shelters also reportedly had a curfew and some of the migrants at the beach referred to the shelters as “jails.”

Desert Sun reports a fight then broke out between the migrants and a group of 300 local residents eager to see the migrants leave their community.

The local residents were from Playas de Tijuana, an upscale neighborhood, who confronted the migrants and demanded they leave; “By 8:30 p.m., hundreds of residents and migrants had congregated by the beach, with local residents demanding the immigrants leave the public space at the beach,” Desert Sun reports.

“This is not an appropriate place for them,” one local resident said, per the report. “There are appropriate places for them.”

And:

During a confrontation that lasted more than three hours, area residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved Mexican flags. They chanted “Mexico! Mexico!” each time a bus transporting migrants left the beach for the temporary shelter. Mostly women and children went to the shelters, while young men from the caravan said they were determined to stay together at the beach and await the estimated 2,000 more caravan members on their way to Tijuana.

Pushing, shoving, kicking and a couple of blows broke out between masses of residents and migrants, illuminated by the crescent moon and mobile light towers, set up by authorities on the beach on the U.S. side of the border. More than three dozen municipal and federal police watched, separating people and trying to prevent the situation from devolving into fistfights and chaos.

After midnight, residents assaulted journalists, injuring at least three, according to reporters on the scene.

Continued:

The conflict was foreshadowed earlier in the day at the beach. By the afternoon, two large groups of migrants – a total of about 750 people – had arrived in Tijuana. The city’s migrant shelters had limited space when the caravan arrived. A large portion of the migrants said they didn’t want to be separated, opting instead to sleep at the beach.

On Wednesday evening, city and state officials announced they were opening a temporary shelter at the Benito Juarez sports complex, where 360 migrants could sleep on thin mattresses in an indoor basketball court. They started offering buses from the beach to the shelter around 6 p.m.

By Thursday, the migrants had left the beach and joined hundreds of caravan members at a temporary shelter at the Benito Juarez sports complex. The complex has room for 3,000 people to sleep on thin mattresses on the floor of an indoor basketball court, in large, communal tents and in individual camping tents, according to a local official.

After the incident, Francisco Rueda Gómez, Baja California secretary-general, said: “The message to the migrant population is very clear. We are providing them with humanitarian support, health care, and food, however the need to take into consideration the rules of the shelters so they can coexist in harmony with the local population.”
