Decorated Ex Marine says – John McCain is no Hero

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH DEPT.
Please read the following article from an ex-Marine who was a POW during the Vietnam War. He tells quite a different story about Sen. John McCain than is presented by the corporate-controlled mass media. He asks, “What does it say about the decay of our republic when the three viable candidates for President of the United States have records that won’t stand the light of day? At the beginning of the primary process there were honorable, qualified, candidates; but they were not promoted by the media, and were rejected by the voters.” Obviously, this writer does not understand that the same people who control the mainstream media also belong to secret societies that adhere to Illuminati doctrines, one of which is never to allow anyone in high public office who cannot be controlled because of sins/crimes in their past.

JOHN McCAIN IS NO HERO
I have never in my long life seen propaganda as blatant and untrue as the ceaseless barrage of lies proclaiming John McCain as a hero. Nothing could be farther from the truth. As McCain emerged as a candidate, ABC made-a-for-TV movie portraying him as a hero who endured torture and prevailed. About the only thing in that movie that was the truth is that they got his name right. While a POW, his propaganda broadcasts were frequently heard on Radio Hanoi. By his own admission, when he was pulled from the lake in downtown Hanoi, badly hurt, the first thing he did was to identify himself as the son of Admiral McCain, CINCPAC (overall commander of all forces in the Pacific, including all forces in Vietnam). He told his captors that if they would take him to a hospital, he would give them classified military information. They did, and he did. He wrote this himself in an article for U.S. News and World Report in May of 1973, shortly after his return to the U.S.. Yet the citation for a Silver Star which hangs on his office wall says that it is for courageously refusing to give any military information during his initial weeks of capture; do you begin to see that something here isn’t quite right?
Still worse, in my opinion – much worse – is the fact that as a senator he has consistently opposed and thwarted every effort made to return our abandoned POWs still in Vietnam and Laos, or to have their existence revealed. My wife, Marty, was a POW activist while I was in Vietnam, before any prisoners were released, and continued for years after that because at least 1,500 POWs were left behind. She has written an excellent summary of the truth about McCain: McCain – Portrait of Unfaithfulness.
There is also a very thorough article about McCain by Roland C. Eyears, posted on several blogs. You can search for it under the title, “The Most Flawed Presidential Candidate in History,” or by the author’s name, or by going to the web site of Radio Station WCLT, Newark, Ohio. If you don’t have access to the internet, ask your children or grandchildren to get it for you.
One last thought: McCain is well known for being unable to control his temper (he is known in the senate as “McNasty”); he flies into a rage when he doesn’t get his way, and screams obscenities in the faces of the other senators. He is so unstable emotionally that Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss) said publicly that if McCain should be elected president, the nation would be in danger. Maybe we know now why he is so emotionally unstable.
SO, WHY ISN’T ALL THIS WIDELY KNOWN?
The reason that most Americans don’t know the ugly truth about John McCain is that when the POWs were returned in 1973 a decision was made that “You are all heroes” – that there would be no prosecution of collaborators like McCain. In spite of this, Col. Ted Guy, USAF, senior POW at the Plantation (a segment of the Hanoi Hilton), and a genuine hero, insisted on filing criminal charges against the worst of the collaborators. One of those was a Marine; unable to live with his betrayal of Corps and country, he committed suicide. The charges were later dismissed, and the rest of those traitors are living today with the same benefits as those of the faithful POWs. So, the government whitewashed all collaborators; and the only one who paid for his crimes was the one who was honorable enough to admit his error and commit suicide. In addition to that, Senators have power not experienced by the rest of us; John McCain’s medical records, and his military records, are sealed.
AND WHAT ABOUT HILLARY AND OBAMA?
Equally troubling is the fact that the sordid histories of both Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barak Hussein Obama are being concealed, or ignored, by the media. What does it say about the decay of our republic when the three viable candidates for President of the United States have records that won’t stand the light of day? At the beginning of the primary process there were honorable, qualified, candidates; but they were not promoted by the media, and were rejected by the voters.
