McCain Left Behind An Infuriating Letter To America Before, 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.”

Avenatti Shares Statements From His Ex-Wives To Prove He’s A Good Guy – Backfires BIG Time!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Chicks On The Right:

Michael Avenatti was arrested on charges of domestic violence last night. He’s out on bail and held a brief press conference, in which he promised that he would be “fully exonerated.”

According to TMZ:

We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”

We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

But LISTEN. He is innocent! NOTHING HAPPENED PLZ DISPERSE!

He’s a decent man. Please ignore the fact that his mere existence proves otherwise.

In order to prove that he’s a decent man, he shared statements from his ex-wives.

That’s fine and dandy and all, but neither of his ex-wives are the alleged victims here, so their statements are virtually irrelevant to me.

Sorry, but I think we should treat Avenatti the same way he treated Kavanaugh. Guilty until proven innocent!

Also, you don’t just randomly get arrested on a domestic violence charge. He posted $50,000 bail. SOMETHING happened.

California Just Hit With A NEW Wave Of Deadly Attack – Not Fires

A norovirus outbreak is sweeping through a shelter for wildfire victims in Northern California, potentially causing diarrhea, fever and body aches in anyone who is infected, The Associated Press reports.

The norovirus is highly contagious and has prompted shelter workers to quarantine infected residents separate from others in the shelter. Staff cleaned the shelter with bleach Wednesday, according to the AP.

The victims of the virus are likely people displaced by the Camp Fire, the most deadly fire in state history after killing at least 56 people. The Camp Fire has wiped out more than 9,000 houses and commercial buildings. It had burned 140,000 acres and was 40 percent contained by Thursday morning, according to the state fire agency Cal Fire.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long met with Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and emergency officials in California Wednesday. The Trump administration officials surveyed the wreckage of the Camp Fire, especially around Paradise, a town of about 27,000 that was 95 percent destroyed by the Camp Fire.

“Every time I come to California I say this is the worst fire I’ve seen. Once again this is the absolute worst,” Zinke said in Wednesday tweet. “Worse than any war zone I saw in Iraq. The heroism of firefighters is amazing.”

“We’ll be here for several years working this disaster,” Long said at a press conference after surveying Paradise, according to NBC News.

“The infrastructure is basically a total rebuild at this point,” Long said. “You’re not going to be able to rebuild Paradise the way it was.”

The Woolsey Fire, a major fire burning in Southern California, has consumed another 98,000 acres and was 57 percent contained by Thursday morning. It has killed at least two people and razed 600 structures, according to Cal Fire.
