OT McCain... Why Would Anyone Vote For This Guy? Just another Parasite!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

John McCain is a maverick senator and former Vietnam veteran and prisoner of war for 5 years in North Vietnam. On the positive side, he is a rare exception to the partisan bitterness in Washington these days, often crafting bipartisan approaches to issues such as smoking and campaign reform.

Here are some negative allegations:

- McCain was one of the "Keating Five," congressmen investigated on ethics charges for strenuously helping convicted racketeer Charles Keating after he gave them large campaign contributions and vacation trips.

Charles Keating was convicted of racketeering and fraud in both state and federal court after his Lincoln Savings & Loan collapsed, costing the taxpayers $3.4 billion. His convictions were overturned on technicalities; for example, the federal conviction was overturned because jurors had heard about his state conviction, and his state charges because Judge Lance Ito (yes, that judge) screwed up jury instructions. Neither court cleared him, and he faces new trials in both courts.)

Though he was not convicted of anything, McCain intervened on behalf of Charles Keating after Keating gave McCain at least $112,00 in contributions. In the mid-1980s, McCain made at least 9 trips on Keating's airplanes, and 3 of those were to Keating's luxurious retreat in the Bahamas. McCain's wife and father-in-law also were the largest investors (at $350,000) in a Keating shopping center; the Phoenix New Times called it a "sweetheart deal."

- Mafia ties: In 1995, McCain sent birthday regards, and regrets for not attending, to Joseph "Joe Bananas" Bonano, the head of the New York Bonano crime family, who had retired to Arizona. Another politician to send regrets was Governor Fife Symington, who has since been kicked out of office and convicted of 7 felonies relating to fraud and extortion.

- At least one veteran's group (U.S. Veteran's Dispatch) really hates him, and accuses McCain of cooperating with the North Vietnamese while he was their prisoner. They also sketch McCain's ties, through his wealthy father-in-law, to various Arizona scandals including the murder of reporter Don Bolles. Check out their version at the US Veteran's Dispatch web site.

- Family troubles: McCain has a reputation as a politician who has difficulty keeping his pants zipped, according to Republican sources. He acknowledges that his adultery broke up his first marriage. His second wife Cindy, the daughter of a wealthy Budweiser beer distributor, was addicted to prescription narcotics and even stole hard drugs from a medical charity that she ran. McCain acknowledges that she didn't want him to run, and only agreed once he promised that she doesn't have to go to New Hampshire or Iowa.

Quotes: - "Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father." -- John McCain

- "He took his role as father very seriously. But when we finished chores, we'd go to the beach and swim. He'd pretend he was Banana Man and throw me into the waves. We had bodysurfing contests." -- McCain's daughter Sidney. Banana man?

- Leonardo DiCaprio is "an androgynous wimp." -- McCain.

McCain is a true American.

Vote your conscience...

True American? NOT!!

McCain is a puppet of the Phoenix-Arizona mobster network, the state he represents as a senator. To understand the background to John McCain, you need to know about the Kemper Marley organised crime network which runs Arizona. Marley was the protigi of Sam Bronfman of the major Illuminati bloodline family in North America which owns the liquor giant Seagrams and Universal Music, the biggest music company in the world. See related article on Time Warner. Marley had also been connected to what remained of the Al Capone operation.

Kemper Marley, now dead, owned the Arizona liquor monopoly, United Liquor. In 1948 two employees of this "company" were jailed for federal liquor violations and one of them was Jim Hensley, the general manager, and father in law toJohn McCain.

Marley himself was saved from prosecution by his personal attorney, William Rehnquist, who went on to be the present Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court!! When Hensley came out of prison he was rewarded by Marley with a Budweiser distributorship, which is now in the hands of John McCain. The last estimate I saw it was worth $200 million.

When a reporter on the Arizona Republic, Don Bolles, threatened to expose the Marley rackets and the big names involved, he was murdered when a bomb exploded in his car. Bolles was wheeling and dealing with these guys and so knew the truth. His last words were: "Adamson, Emprise, the mafia."

John Adamson was a hit man and Emprise was a dog track operation which changed it's name to Sportservice. It is controlled by the Kemper Marley mob.

Marley, with his massive wealth and influence, controlled all the congressmen and senators in Arizona, as his successors still do. These include our "war hero", John McCain.

Another Phoenix figure, the Marley-connected Charles Keating, paid John McCain $112,000 and a deal between Keating and McCain's wife involving a shopping centre, netted half a million dollars in six months. Keating has faced criminal charges for corruption.

You will never be told the true background to any of this by the Arizona media, like the Arizona Republic and the Phoenix Gazette. They were started by a guy called Eugene Pullium, at the instigation of, yes, you guessed it, Kemper Marley.

Eugene Pullium is, in turn, the grandfather of Dan Quayle, the Brain- of-America who was vice president to George Bush. Quayle, Bush, and Colin Powell, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were the trio who orchestrated the Gulf War. All three are the bloodline of England's King George II. Just a co-incidence, nothing to worry about.

Quayle grew up in Paradise Valley, near Phoenix, next door to Robert Welsh, the man who started the John Birch Society. This claims to be against the New World Order, but is, in fact, at it's top level, an exercise in damage limitation and a "fishing" operation to attract out of the shadows those who know about what is going on.

These are the webs and networks in which we find, John McCain,"war hero". He's as corrupt as they come and would be a perfect running mate for George W. Bush. The "Dream Ticket"? Bloody nightmare more like.

McCain is a *true* American. Read GW's post. This is the *state* of the Union.

America is lacking the high quality of Abraham Lincoln. We'll never see his kind again!

-- dinosaur (dinosaur@williams-net.com), February 12, 2000.

The Bush cabal must be really feeling the pressure. Don't they have enough money to buy the Presidency

-- Otis (Otis@sprynet.com), February 12, 2000.

GW, fascinating! Was King George II descended from the Merovingians? If I ever knew, I have forgotten.

-- canthappen (n@ysayer.com), February 12, 2000.

Don't blink, What was said is true and is very scary to most people. We don't want to believe it.

-- ET (bneville@zebra.net), February 12, 2000.

Good job, GW,

But, don't worry. McCain can't possibly win. He'll get sympathy votes because he was a POW (even I respect him for that) but most people have seen his bs over the years and know he's a loser.

(Furthermore, he's been in Washington for what, 18 years ?...and he's STILL considered an outsider.)

No way he'll win.

Do you really think that ol' Pat Buchanan is going to choose Lenora Fulani as his running mate?

-- Butt Nugget (catsbutt@umailme.com), February 12, 2000.

Hey... if Laura (Ladylogic) doesn't like him, then that's all I need.

What's up? I thought LL was banned. How did it get in here? Sysops asleep at the wheel?

-- canthappen (n@ysayer.com), February 13, 2000.

dinosaur, I agree. I don't think we have seen anyone in this present day with Lincoln's bloodcurdling totalitarianism. Lincoln threw freedom in the toilet. Clinton is trying hard, but still unsuccessful to the degree Lincoln was. As far as I know, Clinton is not responsible for thousands of American lives, so far. I know Clinton has his hand in some murder and maybe it is just a warmup. Time will tell.

But, I just can't picture McClain as the Antichrist. He is way too unattractive.

-- canthappen (n@ysayer.com), February 13, 2000.

National elections are all rigged since the advent of the Electoral College, so why burn so many calories over nothing that you could change anyway.

I wager GW gets in and is president... he is in the "inside" group with Pops being who he is anyway.

I am more worried about my "tax bill" at this juncture in time.

snarlin' at the idiot on TV...
