John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 10)

John McCain (R-AZ), a coward knowing he'll be found out -

In June 1963, Jack Kennedy insisted on inspections of Israel’s nuclear facility. He was dead by November. He died trying to create a Middle East free of nuclear weapons.

John McCain is alive. Or so it’s reported—though looking pale, elderly and frail. What’s he doing about the nuclear threat in that volatile region?

Answer: aggravating it at every opportunity. Remember the WMD rationale for invading Iraq? Now he’s selling Iran.

Yes, he spent 5-1/2 years as a prisoner of war. His fellow prisoners walked out gaunt. Check out the photos of McCain when he was released.

As the fair-haired, blue-eyed son of a U.S. admiral, the North Vietnamese saw him as a wartime prince in captivity.

In truth, he was a last-in-his-class brat at the Naval Academy best known for crashing planes and still getting plumb assignments. He rode the family name to privilege and fame. And parlayed his lineage to better treatment than other POWs.

During his formative years, he was the party boy son grandson of a fabled WWII admiral.

Three months before he became a POW, his admiral father helped Lyndon Johnson cover-up an Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 Americans. Six months later, Admiral John S. McCain, Jr. was named commander of all U.S forces in the Pacific.

Loyalty Challenged

Colonel Ted Guy, John McCain’s commanding officer while a POW, wanted charges lodged against him for treason on his return.

McCain received a Silver Star for conduct in 1967. That’s also when he made a series of damaging broadcasts for the North Vietnamese. Here’s an assessment by Colonel Earl Hopper a Vietnam-era intelligence officer:

“Within five or seven days after being captured McCain made a deal to trade medical care in exchange for highly classified military information including specific details of the package routes for bombing North Vietnam. He also told them the primary bombing targets. We lost 60% more aircraft and men because of the information McCain gave to the North Vietnamese. After about a month things had gotten so bad that we called off bombing North Vietnam.”

Does John McCain have good cause to keep secret his conduct while in captivity? You betcha.

The facts conflict with Brand McCain, the electable war hero and fabled maverick in the political lineage of Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater.

Has he been imbedded in a culture of lies for so long that he can no longer tell the truth?

As a frequent travel companion of Senator Joe Lieberman, McCain has long been loyalty challenged. Call it too much time in Tel Aviv.

The Zionist state specializes in waging war “by way of deception.” John McCain sold us the invasion of Iraq on phony intelligence, much of it “fixed” around an Israeli agenda.

How that happened remains for him to explain. Out here in the summer heat of Arizona, we’re still waiting.

An explanation without an apology should be impossible. But if anyone can do it, McCain can.

The McCain Lineage

McCain’s grandfather was the real deal. A dedicated and widely admired four-star skipper, he died within days of the end of World War II.

By all accounts, McCain’s father was also a top-notch commander. Then came his complicity in the cover-up of the Israeli murder of Americans during Tel Aviv’s Six-Day Land Grab.

That Israeli assault on a U.S. Navy vessel left more than 200 casualties. After Admiral McCain’s complicity in the Lyndon Johnson cover-up, the McCain family began to deteriorate.

As a U.S. Senator, John McCain sustained the lie when he endorsed a cover-up book written on the USS Liberty by a part-time bankruptcy judge and Israeli operative living in Florida.

Knowledgeable veterans are outraged that the murder of Americans by a purported ally is being covered up decades later by the same public official who gave Order of Battle information to an enemy and made for them dozens of damaging radio broadcasts.

U.S. intelligence monitored the McCain broadcasts (roughly 35 total). That’s why he was denied a promotion while in captivity—contrary to the norm for POWs.

McCain says he gave only useless information. Yet American losses soared with the enemy’s awareness of the altitude, direction and primary targets of U.S. attack aircraft.

No one can say for certain how they would respond to the conditions McCain faced. He concedes that he cracked. So don’t be too quick to judge.

Yet the key point remains: who would dare build a war hero façade on the deaths of his fellow naval aviators?

How many Americans were shot down—aided by information provided by this purported hero?

At age 74, McCain has done enough damage. He may yet sell us on an invasion of Iran though Israel, not Iran, has a nuclear arsenal.

Maybe that’s why John McCain remains alive. Kennedy is still dead.

  3. UNF  August 9, 2010 at 12:29 am

    McCain was and remains a committed warcriminal psychopath, the only good the bastard ever did was involuntarily help the Vietnamese defend themselves from his fellow U$-Imperial marauders.

    There is way more to the McCain “story”…read Mr. Nicoloff’s research.

    This is an excerpt from part 1 that explains the McCain family history starting with John’s grandfather. There is an introduction, and parts 2-7B. The series is titled “The Three Stooges go to Washington” (McCain, Hillary and Obama are the stooges. Believe me, the read is worth your time. The link is at the bottom.

    Senator John Sidney McCain III

    John Sidney McCain, III, according to traditional biographical sources, was “born at the Coco Solo Naval Base, Panama Canal Zone on August 29, 1936.” He is third in a succession of U.S. naval officers cultivated from the same family.

    One would think that these two sentences, the first which states where he was born and the second which describes the legacy he inherited, would be easy to check and prove. But they are not. So we must go backward in time to either prove he was born into a naval family at Coco Solo—or not.

    John Sidney McCain, Sr. [McCain, III’s grandfather]: The Official Story

    John Sidney McCain, Sr. (JS McCain I), was born August 9, 1884, in Carroll County, Miss., to John Sidney and Elizabeth Ann Young McCain. JS McCain I was attending the University of Mississippi when he met his future wife, Katherine Davey Vaulx (Katherine was born January 9, 1876 in Fayetteville, Arkansas), a Greek and Latin teacher eight years his senior.

    He then transferred to the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis where he graduated 79th in a class of 116 in 1906. The U.S. Navy career of JS McCain I began by taking part in the World Cruise of the “Great White Fleet,” from December 16, 1907 to February 22, 1909.

    JS McCain I and Katherine were married August 9, 1909 at Colorado Springs, Colorado. The McCains had one child, John Sidney McCain, Jr. (JS McCain II), who was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on January 17, 1911.

    JS McCain I came up through the ranks and was promoted to rear admiral in 1941.

    Rear Admiral JS McCain I died of a heart attack on September 6, 1945 at his home in Coronado, California—four days after witnessing the Japanese surrender at Tokyo Bay. He was posthumously awarded the rank of full admiral and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

    Katherine died in San Diego May 29, 1959 and is buried next to her husband.

    JS McCain I had an older brother, William Alexander McCain, who also attended the University of Mississippi before transferring to the United States Military Academy; he retired as a brigadier general.

    JS McCain I: The unofficial story

    According to official biographies, “John Sidney McCain, Sr.” was born to “John Sidney and Elizabeth Ann Young McCain” at Teoc, in Carroll County, Mississippi on August 9, 1884 and died on September 6, 1945 at the age of 61.

    There is no information on the birth or parentage of JS McCain I or Elizabeth Ann available through traditional sources (claims that “they just didn’t keep good records back then” are excusive. People and cultures, particularly prominent families and governments, have been keeping “good records” for thousands of years).

    After attending the University of Mississippi for a year, McCain enrolled in the U.S. Naval Academy, where he graduated 79th out of a class of 116. Despite his meteoric rise as an unremarkable, even incompetent naval officer, the Annapolis Naval Academy does not list “Admiral John Sidney McCain, Sr.,” as a “notable” graduate from the Class of 1906.

    The first anomaly in the ancestry of John McCain, Sr. appears in his “wikipedia” biography. Though the author of this particular historical account of Admiral McCain is unknown, the article is consistent with other genealogical accounts of the McCain family in that the first “John Sidney McCain”—the presumed father of JS McCain I, was not called “Sr.,” or “I” which are the customary designations for fathers who name sons after themselves.

    This elder McCain is claimed to have been born in “Mississippi” in 1851 (no birth date or place indicated). Regarding the death of this patriarch, we are only given the year, “1934,” with no date and no location. The same is true for Elizabeth Ann—birth year (1855) and state (Mississippi) and death year (1922) and state (Mississippi) only.

    Genealogical databases and public records are devoid of specific information legitimizing “the McCains from Mississippi.” The deaths of a decorated U.S. Navy admiral’s father and mother should have at least prompted the publishing of obituaries in the local newspaper that would reveal more clues for future genealogists, but that is not the case.

    The McCain family history dead ends at this point.

    [We have now stumbled onto a clue that the Senator from Arizona (JS McCain III) is not who he pretends to be. Like we learned when attempting to trace the genealogy of the “George Herbert Walker Bush” clan (The IO, April—June, 2007), these people don’t just appear out of a vacuum. They came from somewhere, usually from Europe and, in those days, by ship.]

    A single maritime record dated April 26, 1924, from Ellis Island shows that a “John McCain,” a “British” citizen of “Scotch” origin (yes, the document says “Scotch”), “age 59,” claimed he had been sailing as a crew member with the “Wandsworth [Gas] Works” shipping company for “10 years” as an “A.B.” (able boatsman). That claim would place his birth date closer to 1865, not “1884,” The recorded physical descriptions of this McCain match what is revealed in later photographs of JS McCain I. He was not a large man, his weight fluctuated from 130-145 lbs. throughout his career with Wandsworth Works and, if this is the same man, the U.S. Navy. He was also short in stature, his declared height ranging from 5’-5” to 5’-8”.

    A review of public records does not reveal a “John McCain” having been born in England or Scotland in 1865. So, where might this “John McCain” have been born? Certainly not in Teoc, Mississippi. And what is the significance of this 59-year-old “John McCain” arriving in New York as a foreign national working on a foreign ship? The answer will be found in photographs taken during and near the conclusion of World War II.

    Naval historian E.B. Potter noted that, “John Sidney McCain defied the image of the senior naval officer. Bony, wizened, with a hooked nose and sunken cheeks, he turned sixty during World War II and looked at least ten years older.”

    Other accounts agreed, though most blamed his weathered appearance on “the stress of years at sea.”

    Dear Mr. Gates, senator McCain may have faults, but to blame him for losing pilots after he was shot down and captured is pure stupidity. The American commanders knew that the captured pilots would talk and give whatever information they had if tortured by the North Vietnamese. I was a navy enlisted man that went through SERE training with many navy pilots and the instructors told everyone to give your captors anything they wanted, just to do your best to conceal. The instructors also told us that after capture, your #1 objective was to stay alive. I do know that everything is subjective and I don’t know what went on in the prison camps, but I was not there and I will not judge.
