I want to start out by saying that I find it incredible that a clip of John McCain saying that 'Obama isn't an Arab, he's a decent family man' is being portrayed as one of his finest moments.
Please see the video below that includes that clip and a clip of Ben Affleck breaking down how McCain's response was completely the opposite.

I realize McCain has passed and may God rest his soul. I am not one who can have a certain belief when someone is alive and then change the way I feel once they pass. I feel bad for his family and am glad he is no longer in pain. There are many articles praising his heroics, ironically by the very same media that hated him when he was running against Obama. I can’t write that same kind of article when I know what he did to our Country.
Below is a list of just some of the things that can be tacked on to his belt.
Sen. John McCain admitted that he gave the FBI a dossier detailing claims of a Russian blackmail plot against President-elect Donald Trump.
McCain made a public statement when questions piled up about his alleged role in spreading an unverified and error-riddled document that Trump has denounced as “a complete and total fabrication.”
“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,” McCain said.
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein said McCain was given the document by a former British ambassador to Moscow.
“It came from a former British MI6 agent who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both republican and democratic candidates opposed to Trump,” Bernstein told CNN.
“They were looking at Trump’s business ties. They saw some questionable things about Russians, about his businesses in Russia. They, in turn, hired this MI6 former investigator. He then came up with additional information from his Russian sources. He was very concerned by the implications of it. He then took it to an FBI colleague that he had known in his undercover work for years. He took it to this FBI man in Rome who turned it over to the bureau in Washington in August,” Bernstein said.
“And then, a former British ambassador to Russia independently was made aware of these findings and he took the information to John McCain – Senator John McCain of Arizona – in the period just after the election and showed it to McCain – additional findings,” he added.

McCain’s temper is well documented. He’s called opponents and colleagues “shitheads,” “assholes” and in at least one case “a fucking jerk.”
In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day.

In 2008, Politifact determined that the Vietnam veterans who claimed that Sen. McCain was a traitor and a “Hanoi Hilton songbird” were “Pants on Fire wrong.” The press gave McCain a pass and attempted to destroy his critics.
TRUNEWS, a nonprofit Christian digital news app, obtained the bombshell audio recording and released it on the organizations daily newscast. TRUNEWS acquired the audio recording in cooperation with WeSearchR, a new media company founded by Charles Johnson.
Video recording below:

Lt. Commander John McCain was shot down over Hanoi by a North Vietnamese missile while flying his 23rd bombing mission. He was pulled ashore by North Vietnamese who took him to a prison known by POWs as the Hanoi Hilton. Both of his arms and one leg were broken.
McCain was a prisoner of war for five and a half years and was released on March 14, 1973, where he returned to the United States of America as a war hero.

McCain’s POW legacy propelled him to victory in a race for a U.S. Congressional seat in Arizona in 1982. In 1986, he replaced Barry Goldwater in the Senate.
In the recording, McCain said he was guilty of crimes against the Vietnamese country and people. He confessed that he bombed their cities, towns, and villages and caused many injuries, even deaths, for the people of Vietnam.
He praised the medical care and kindness of his captors even though he came to North Vietnam as an aggressor. McCain said he expressed his deep gratitude for their kind treatment and that he will never forget the kindness extended to him by the communist North Vietnamese.
Here is the actual script of John McCains 1969 Tokyo Rose propaganda broadcast on North Vietnamese radio.
“To the Vietnamese people and the government of the DRVN:
From John Sidney McCain, 624787, Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Navy, born 29 August 1936, Panama, home state Oregon. Shot down 26 October 1967, A-4E aircraft.
I, as a U.S. airman, am guilty of crimes against the Vietnamese country and people. I bombed their cities, towns, and villages and caused many injuries, even deaths, for the people of Vietnam.
I was captured in the capital city of Hanoi while attacking it. After I was captured, I was taken to the hospital in Hanoi, where I received very good medical treatment. I was given an operation on my leg, which allowed me to walk again, and a cast on my right arm, which was badly broken in three places.
The doctors were very good and they knew a great deal about the practice of medicine. I remained in the hospital for some time and regained much of my health and strength. Since I arrived in the camp of detention, I received humane and lenient treatment.
I received this kind treatment and food even though I came here as an aggressor and the people who I injured have much difficulty in their living standards. I wish to express my deep gratitude for my kind treatment and I will never forget this kindness extended to me.”
McCain held his seat in the Senate for nearly 32 years. After McCain’s death, it will fall to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, to name his successor.
State law gives Ducey the power to fill the Senate vacant seat for the next two years, at which time a special election will be held in 2020 to select a person to complete the final two years of McCain’s term.
The seat will be up for a full six-year term in the 2022 election. Arizona law also stipulates that the appointee must be from McCain’s party.
Ducey avoided discussion about which Republican he might appoint to fill McCain’s seat, citing respect for the senator and his family.
“Out of respect for the life and legacy of Senator John McCain and his family, Governor Ducey will not be making any announcements about an appointment until after the Senator is laid to rest,” said Daniel Ruiz, a spokesman for Ducey.
The governor released a statement Saturday praising McCain as an “icon” and “American hero.”
“Here at home, we were most proud to call him a fellow Arizonan,” said Ducey. “Like so many of us, he was not born here, but his spirit, service and fierce independence shaped the state with which he became synonymous.”
A week after he was diagnosed with brain cancer, McCain cast a critical vote to allow debate to begin on legislation to repeal Obamacare. Days later he doomed the bill by voting no.

I agree with this person on Twitter. No one with a brain tumor should be making huge decisions for our country:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I have full respect for John McCain; however, with his brain tumor he should have never been allowed to vote in the Senate. McCain always said that he would repeal Obamacare but in the end he tarnished is legacy by not doing it. My belief is that it was the tumor.

Great FACTUAL article! It took about 2 minutes for me to be done listening to the hypocrites lauding him as a hero. Politics is disgusting.
I love reading your articles. Always truthful and always intriguing! I am not a fan of McCain and all the praising of his life from the left makes me sick. Keep up the good work!
McCain is no hero, I wish most Americans would read your fantastic article Lexy. Of course the Left is in love with him at the time of his death and they will now use his death as a political tool.
Finally an article that reflects McStains true legacy! Great article! One major missing part is his horseplay on the carrier that cost over 150 sailors and corpsman when he wet started his jet to blast a fireball over the jet behind him. That act started a chain reaction that almost sunk a carrier, cost lotsa lives and many aircraft went overboard due to damage or to prevent additional damage. I feel for his family as I am sure they are grieving but his going was a blessing to the country.
As we all know! Another under the table man in Washington!! What a loser! Lier! He betrayed his country and our President Trump!! He will get what’s comin to him!! God says so!! “Vengeance is mine saith the Lord”
JohncCain might have thought he was being saved from prison but his death… But the prison he is going to rot in… Is not going to be fun… Too bad for him
I’m sick to death of career politicians that change their mind for the highest bidder. McCain was one of them. I’m glad he wasn’t elected President and ecstatic that we now have one that won’t play the game. RIP John McCain, but I won’t miss you.
The only good thing John No Name did in his life was picking Sarah Palin as his running mate. Out of respect for the family- that is all I'll say.
