    Cindy McCain will be, amethyst, John's replacement, and she hates Trump even more than John.

    She prefers Presidents who are not captured by the Russians.

    That's the spirit! Most of the others wishing him hell voted for him, too.

    I have a hard time forgiving him for Palin.

    I turned against McCain once and for all after the VA scandal in Arizona. Doctors who were whistle blowers about the death lists went to McCain for help. Instead, they were all mysteriously fired.

    If it had not been for an obscure Congressman from Florida, none of us would have probably heard about this.

    Now Dims want us all to have the same government run health care.

    Yay!

    You would think that Mr. Veteran himself would be their biggest cheerleader.

    Think again.

    But no, I won't gloat about him dying, it's just not how I am.

    Besides, there are a dime a dozen just like him waiting to take his spot.

    Not gonna happen. BOTH are credible candidates but Joe is just too old. Ward is a great candidate. Better than that RINO moron McSally.

    the fact the evil mass murderer DICK Nixon was afraid of him is all the proof in the world McCarthy was a good guy,not the liar and madman the corporate controlled media made him out to be.

    That McCarthy, he wasn't such a bad guy after all


    .

    https://www.amazon.com/Blacklisted-History-Senator-McCarthy-Americas-ebook/dp/B000W94GOU


    Accused of creating a bogus Red Scare and smearing countless innocent victims in a five-year reign of terror, Senator Joseph McCarthy is universally remembered as a demagogue, a bully, and a liar. History has judged him such a loathsome figure that even today, a half century after his death, his name remains synonymous with witch hunts.

    But that conventional image is all wrong, as veteran journalist and author M. Stanton Evans reveals in this groundbreaking book. The long-awaited Blacklisted by History, based on six years of intensive research, dismantles the myths surrounding Joe McCarthy and his campaign to unmask Communists, Soviet agents, and flagrant loyalty risks working within the U.S. government. Evans’s revelations completely overturn our understanding of McCarthy, McCarthyism, and the Cold War.

    Drawing on primary sources—including never-before-published government records and FBI files, as well as recent research gleaned from Soviet archives and intercepted transmissions between Moscow spymasters and their agents in the United States—Evans presents irrefutable evidence of a relentless Communist drive to penetrate our government, influence its policies, and steal its secrets. Most shocking of all, he shows that U.S. officials supposedly guarding against this danger not only let it happen but actively covered up the penetration. All of this was precisely as Joe McCarthy contended.

    Blacklisted by History shows, for instance, that the FBI knew as early as 1942 that J. Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the atomic bomb project, had been identified by Communist leaders as a party member; that high-level U.S. officials were warned that Alger Hiss was a Soviet spy almost a decade before the Hiss case became a public scandal; that a cabal of White House, Justice Department, and State Department officials lied about and covered up the Amerasia spy case; and that the State Department had been heavily penetrated by Communists and Soviet agents before McCarthy came on the scene.

    Evans also shows that practically everything we’ve been told about McCarthy is false, including conventional treatment of the famous 1950 speech at Wheeling, West Virginia, that launched the McCarthy era (“I have here in my hand . . .”), the Senate hearings that casually dismissed his charges, the matter of leading McCarthy suspect Owen Lattimore, the Annie Lee Moss case, the Army-McCarthy hearings, and much more.

    In the end, Senator McCarthy was censured by his colleagues and condemned by the press and historians. But as Evans writes, “The real Joe McCarthy has vanished into the mists of fable and recycled error, so that it takes the equivalent of a dragnet search to find him.” Blacklisted by History provides the first accurate account of what McCarthy did and, more broadly, what happened to America during the Cold War. It is a revealing exposé of the forces that distorted our national policy in that conflict and our understanding of its history since.

    One of the funniest things reading in this thread is all the people who have spent the past year CURSING Donald Trump praying for a horrible death to him, killed, assassinated, beheaded, drop from the sky, run over by a bus, poisoned--- now waxing poetic in their tear-stained sheets for POOR OL' JOHN McCAIN---- the lifelong career senator paid a six-figure income to "work" maybe 6 months a year with months off vacation and benefits you can't imagine, aspired to greatness who tried to keep total unknown 1-term do-nothing Obama out of the White House.

    And failed. Even at that.

    Some will call your slow deterioration and fading now a sad tragedy. Others might consider it justice. I wonder who Donald sends to the funeral -- -- -- it won't be him.
