The bitter vitriol that was the funeral of Senator John McCain was a celebration of the
coming together of all Trump haters and bashing him in a second-hand swipe disguised as
Most likely, Senator McCain, would have enjoyed the day and approved the tone of his last
His daughter, Meghan McCain, spewed out the most acerbic comment of all taking aim at the
agenda and good works of the President.
“America has no need to be made great again because America has always been great.”
Yes, Meghan, America is great, has always been great, but the last decade has seen her decline in
economics, morality, manufacturing, trade deficits, crime, immigration issues and available jobs
at a living wage.
Now, it stands to reason that the very wealthy felt no more than a bump or two in the road during
the Great Recession of 2008.
Meghan McCain would be one of those fortunate enough to avoid financial crisis. That comes
from having a senator father, a Navel admiral grandfather and great-grandfather.
The family compound in Arizona is well known, and doors will open for an educated young
woman with the surname of McCain or Clinton.
The others who joined in the drive-by criticism included former presidents Bush and Obama,
along with members of high rank from within their previous administrations.
Again, the Great Recession and Financial Crisis did little to their portfolio, and America
remained great to them as well, at least in their financial quality of life. In fact, they probably
came out somewhat ahead.
(Even though Michelle Obama was never proud of her country until her husband ran for the
presidency, and most of the speakers who have held power seem to have some sort of disdain for
America, its values and its citizens. Not only are we deplorable, now Joe Biden has called up the
dregs of society.)
Many may not know that in 2008 Henry Paulson, then Treasury Secretary and former Goldman –
Sachs CEO, got together for a little “heads up” for his former Goldman – Sachs colleagues and
some other Wall Street and hedge fund managers. Prior to the crash, he let them know that they
needed to move and protect their investments and clients because the financial collapse was
about to happen.
Thanks man, insider trading is great when you are tipped off. Though this happens all the time, it
is barely legal and the average layperson would probably go to jail over it.
People like my neighbor who had worked at one company since he was eighteen and lost ninety
thousand dollars out of his 401K because of the 2008 financial crisis.
Ninety thousand dollars is peanuts to the people Paulson tipped off, but it is everything to a
working person who has labored to contribute to the fund that is to take care of them through
retirement. Had he been the beneficiary of this inside news, he could have moved his savings to a
safe, insured bank account with minimal interest, but the principal could have stayed intact.
How about the ones that lost their homes due to the real estate bubble. The average person didn’t
know it was about to pop, but insiders did. Those whose wealth was protected benefitted
tremendously from the foreclosure fiasco. They gobbled up homes at bargain prices, shifting the
wealth of home equity from a working family to another rich person’s pocket.
What about unemployment?
The unemployment rate was high in 2008 and 2009. Jobs left the country, businesses cut
employees and there was little to no money for the average person. In a consumer-driven
economy, that is bad news.
While I am firmly for capitalism, and I abhor those who want to complain that the “man” has
held them down for one reason or another, and they didn’t have a chance to succeed.
This crisis was orchestrated by the “powers that be” for the largest transfer of wealth in the
history of the United States. It was designed to destroy the middle-class working person and
create a two class society. Those that have and those who have not.
The thing that has always made America great is the opportunity for ANYONE to succeed if
they work hard enough.
I worked for a man who emigrated from Cuba during Castro’s rise to power. He came to the
United States with fifty dollars, a wife and a baby. He and his wife worked tirelessly and built a
successful business. He was the most adamant US patriot and always advised us to never let the
government take the people’s guns. Castro did that and the people were left defenseless to his
Another example was a man who came here from Bulgaria. He told me that if he could come
here with limited money, not much English and make a living, there was no reason why a person
who was brought up here, had all the free schooling and a great command of the language
I couldn’t agree more, however, when the jobs are gone, how is a person to work.
The two administrations before President Trump are the reason that the sixty million deplorable
voters put him in the White House.
The elected officials had shown little regard for their constituents and did more for themselves
than anyone else.
In answer to Meghan McCain’s vengeful tirade, you are your father’s daughter and no one is
surprised at your lack of class. Your actions say much more about you than our President.
Dear President Trump. Most of us, your base, absolutely understand that former Sen. John
McCain didn’t like you personally or your presidency either for that matter and often worked
hand in hand with Democrats, to thwart your initiatives to drain the swamp.
Consequently, we are not distressed that your tepid demonstration of respect on the occasion of
his death, even with the screaming media challenging your personal ethics on the matter, was
limited to perfunctory homilies about his years of public service or the flag issue. We got that!
McCain had his own baggage to carry and most of us know about that too.
So, we entreat you not to lose sight of what’s really going on here, another excuse for the Left
wing-nuts of the media to attack you on points of minutia to stop you before you finish your
important task of draining the swamp. That’s what it’s all about and nothing more.
John McCain has his place in history, militarily, politically and family and except for his
unfortunate individual experiences as a POW, and his painful method of death, he is basically
no different than anyone else who served in uniform, or out, and left a record of that service.
Sen McCain’s best friend in the Senate, his cohort in progressivism disguised as compassionate
conservatism, was Ted Kennedy, arguably the most dangerous politician this side of the
Clintons, to wield power in America. He too was called home with the same malady that claimed
Sen McCain. So are many others.
Kennedy proudly carried the label the “Lion of the Senate!” But who remembers him any more
except for the bridge he didn’t cross? John McCain loved the moniker “the Maverick,” and all
we’ll remember of him is that he was a naval aviator shot down over Vietnam and became a
POW. Some other former POW’s of that conflict have a different opinion of McCain’s heroism in
captivity. We don’t know because most of us weren’t there. We only know what has been sifted
through the organs of the Main Stream Media and regurgitated out to us for our benefit.
Sen. McCain, the once darling of the press, ran as a Republican for President. As a “Maverick,”
the press loved him and doted on his every utterance, until his Democratic presidential
opponent, a talentless half-black “community organizer” with no special accomplishments and
no traceable history, was raised up out of the primal mud of the Chicago political swamp,
financed by Soros and supported by a convicted terrorist bomber, now a college professor.
Like Sauron, the Dark Lord of Mordor, Barak Hussein Obama, with the enthusiastic guidance of
the Orc’s of the Left-wing media, the socialist dominated Democrat party, Unions, and the
propaganda of Liberal university professors, started to fundamentally reorganize America in
Sauron’s image, to create a dark forbidding place, like Cuba and Venezuela for us to abide in.
Where was John McCain? Protecting his self-interest by frequently siding with the dark forces
that were then totally running the government. Where was he when the voters, in successive
elections, returned control of both houses of Congress to Republicans? He still stood like a
“Maverick,” impeding the flow to true American Constitutionalism, respect for America’s history,
its culture and its amazing accomplishments. I cannot fault Donald Trump at all. Trump will be
remembered in the end and John McCain, like Ted Kennedy, will simply be shelved and
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get’m! (28Aug18)
