McCain Vows to Oppose Trump on Torture

If many of Donald Trump’s critics are rushing to kiss the ring, Republican Senator John McCain isn’t one of them. McCain, who has been locked in an on-again, off-again feud with Trump since last summer, told an audience this weekend that he wouldn’t let the president-elect bring torture back to the United States.

“I don’t give a damn what the president of the United States wants to do. We will not waterboard,” McCain said at the annual Halifax International Security Forum. “We will not torture people. It doesn’t work.”

On the subject of waterboarding, McCain has always been slightly to the left of Republicans. Given his unique experience with painful interrogation techniques stemming from his years as a POW, McCain has been afforded the respect and deference you would expect.

On the flipside, Trump was, in the primaries, the only Republican candidate suggesting that the U.S. made a mistake by banning the “enhanced interrogation techniques” defended by the Bush administration.

“What do you think about waterboarding?” Trump asked a crowd last June. “I like it a lot. I don’t think it’s tough enough.”

At one of the debates, Trump said he would not only bring back waterboarding, he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse.”

This weekend, McCain said he would stand in the president’s way if he tried to pursue that promise.

“What does it say about America if we’re going to inflict torture on people?” he asked, telling Trump that he would be challenged in court if he made efforts to defy the Geneva Conventions.

While John McCain thinks that waterboarding is torture, not all Americans agree by any stretch of the imagination. Nor do all Americans agree that terrorist networks like ISIS and al Qaeda should get to shield themselves under the umbrella of international law. Certainly, these armies are not signatories to the Geneva Conventions and they are not legitimate state actors of any kind. Is it logical to put handcuffs on civilized nations when the enemy builds strength through an unending series of war crimes?

These are the questions we may have to confront over the next four years. It’s clear, with the election of Trump, that Americans are ready to destroy these Islamists once and for all. Those championing the prudent, measured approach may not have much of a voice in the new administration.

    McCann! I think it’s about time you need to retired, you have not done much for AZ and to our nation as a whole. I was one of the supporter while you was running for the president. But as the reason days you showed me that you are betrayed our country and done nothing for the last 8 years under Obama administration. You and establishment have two choices : either you performed or get out of your seat . you are one of the establishment. For the last eight yours you have done nothing, to help this country. Now we want you get out, we the people will help Trump to drained the swarmed

  • McCain you might think WATER BOARDING IS AWFULL BUT I THINK ITS A VERY GOOD THING SINCE THOSE PEOPLE THAT CUT OFF PEOPLES HEAD OR WHAT EVER THESE PEOPLE DO.

    • joe

      Not only that but Trump repeatedly tells the media that we should not reveal, our plans going forward if we intend to defeat ISIS! McCain needs to heed that advice and keep his thoughts to himself! If we are going to be wusses in the interrogation of captives we won’t learn squat! Let them squirm not knowing!

      • McCain needs to take a laxative, it looks like he’s full of you know what.

      • William Meredith

        Loose lips sink ships. McCain, STFU.

        • DWB

          I agree with you about McCain.

    • upaces88

      The fear of drowning is universal. Water Boarding doesn’t harm the body at all. However! It brings up the fear!

    • depaz

      We’re dealing w/ people who will cut your head off for being a Christian and will post it on You Tube. I couldn’t care less if they get some water up their nose. . . . .

      • DWB

        These thugs still live in the 7th century and are no more than idiot savages. There is no place for them in this day and age except in their own countries. Let them kill each other off.

    • I absolutely agree, they beheaded on tape to show USA the horrific torture they inflict on Americans. Trump is right, be tougher & harder till they FEAR USA!!

    • Mack Pace

      YES, YOU ARE RIGHT..OLD TWO FACED LYING McCAIN NEEDS TO GO BACK TO THE PRISON HE WAS AT IN WAR WHERE HE WAS GIVEN FOOD,WARM BLANKETS..HE TALKED OUT OF BOTH SIDES OF HIS MOUTH..HIS DAD AND GRANDFATHER HELPED HIM GET OUT..HE WAS FED 2-3 TIMES A DAY WHILE IN PRISON..YES WATERBOARD IS THE SECRET TO MAKE THEM TALK..McCAIN IS A PHONEY..HE NEEDS TO RESIGN HIS DUTY IN CONGRESS

    • Anh Benbrook

      He need to retire, all these y he hasn’t done much for AZ , nor out nations..

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      At one time combatants observed the Geneva Accords in warfare, but as we have seen from ISIS , all of that has disappeared fro the modern battle lines. Today, it is how many you can kill with the least amount of destructive ordinance short of an atomic bomb. McCain is from a different era with old values that seem to be missing in today’s warfare.

  • Elaine Eckart

    we are not planning to put dozens of people in cages and drown them or burn them alive. We are not talking about throwing anyone off roof tops, or murdering little children. Time for you to go home and enjoy whatever days you have left.

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    Hey Irene Grooms…So can I waterboard you then? Wow…every mentally ill hick from the south and midwest who can’t write an intelligent sentence thinks torture is okay. Got news for you Corn Pone Queen or Dixiebell, whichever the hell you are, you want to see real torture? Read you own post. Americans do not use torture. You can try to make this a normal human act as much as you want. Doesn’t fly with civilized human beings. Too liberal for you to be human? Awwww…boooo hooo!

  • Lee Wacker

    I think we are in an entirely new ball game, McCain. Yes, you endured some pretty horrendous stuff, but people who think it is their ‘right’ to rape small children, behead others, even torture dogs to death–no, these creatures need methods as terrible or worse than what they use to even get their attention!

    John, whether you realize it or not, we are locked in a savage battle for our very existence, and even the methods used heretofore which constitute ‘torture,’ i.e. ‘waterboarding,’ is not a deterrent. I agree with you to an extent, but beyond that–no! And, make no mistake, even the ‘refugees’ who have invaded our shores would resort to some of the most horrible methods they could think of to use against our people—and, what is even worse, they would be aided and abetted by local and/or state officials. Look at the situation at Twin Falls, Montana, I think, whereas a bunch of muslim brats raped and belittled an American child, one who was learning challenged, to boot, and the local authorities are fully-aligned AGAINST her and her family, all because they don’t want the local yogurt plant to move or shut down–even though that plant hires only muslims.

    Now, wasn’t the rape, the filming of the rape, and other indignities that child suffered a form of torture? Isn’t the ongoing ridicule, taunting, and other things that family has to go through, torture? They can’t afford to move, yet the muslims got better accomodations!

    No, John, I think waterboarding is much too gentle. Too gentlemanly. I, myself, lean more to the old methods used by our very wise, capable Native Americans—in particular the Apache, Comanches and Yaquis. A white man, Print Olive, had a good trick, too—–when cattle rustlers were caught—the Olive bunch would kill and skin a cow brute, then wrap the rustler in the green hide, and leave the unfortunate in the sun. Green hides shrink in the sun—squeezing the life from the rustler. The Native Americans used the sun, too—while the victim was stripped, spread out, eyelids cut, and left to cook. They used ants, too—I would advocate fire ants in our case, is that really torture? Or self preservation?

    You decide, John.

  • McCain is a rino who is only conservative when he is up for”’ANOTHER” re election . IF it wasn’t for trumps endorsement he would have lost .I personally wish he had lost to the woman who was the TRUE CONSERVATIVE in the race because he is half a liberal.

  • McCain you are living in the past. Your time is over. Go home and let a true conservative do the job right. I am tired of hearing your liberal whining. I’m sorry for what you went through in the service. What you don’t seem to understand is this is a totally different kind of enemy today.
    They don’t play by the rules and you can’t fight them let alone beat them by obeying outdated rules.

  • Art Jones

    McCain, a republican senator, makes a public statement “I don’t give a damn what the president of the United States wants to do.” What a stupid comment! McCain is part of the problem when he should be working for solutions.

  • Ranger Jim

    As a retired Army 1st. Sgt. Abn./Ranger qualified I endorse any torture necessary to save even one American soldier. The live of one soldier makes it fully acceptable.

    • Ko

      Ranger Jim
      I totally agree with you Sir.
      One American life is worth saving even if it means the life of a savage that we now deal with in this country and around the world. I think McCain should retire into oblivion and take a long awaited nap.

      • Mathew Molk

        Don’t call him sir, He works for a living. Right Sergent? (It’s a soldier thing, You might not understand it)

        I am also a veteran, (Combat engineer Platoon Leader in Vietnam) and am 1000% with the First Sergeant, but don’t forget we are not like the average citizen so make your own judgment

        Also I do not like McCain AT ALL, but knowing his background I understand his objection,,,,only one thing, Just how is he single handed going to stop the CIC of the military from issuing orders to use enhanced interrogation? Bold words from RINO.

    • JerryBGoode

      McCain is irrelevant and over the hill. His influence is and should wane. He has gotten more mileage out of being a POW than any person in history and has not rewarded the faith of the people of AZ or the Republican Party. He is an egotistical SOB who ran a lousy Presidential campaign that got us Obama and should be given no influence over the decisions by this President.

    • DWB

      I agree with you Ranger Jim and thank you for your service, I was USN 69-73 on board USS JUNEAU LPD-10.

  • DWB

    I agree Frank and feel McCain is a rino only interested in his own interest.

  • Ralph Moran

    I understand why McCain feels the way he does, it is because he himself was tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, BUT and it is a big BUT, we don’t do those kinds of torture and we don’t condone it. I do not believe we should treat our prisoners like they are American citizens and do not give them a hotel resort to live out the war. McCain has forgotten what war is and what it is about. Every time we have an election here in Arizona we try to get McCain out but his machine is as bad as Hillarys. McCain spends millions of dollars to get re-elected to a job that only pays $200,000 because he then knows who will get the government contracts and can do insider trading to make millions. We need Term Limits to stop this abuse.

  • It seems the American people watch too much Liberal news networks, brainwashed idiots. I am a conservative but I do not and will not vote for someone just because he or she is the same party as me. We have to thoroughly look at the persons past record and what they truly believe and stand for concerning we the people’s best interests, not theirs.
    Like Ralph said most elected officials only care about one thing, Themselves.
    They could make more money being a superintendent at a local high school than they do as a Senator or congressman. They like the feeling of power and spending money that is not their own.

  • Lew

    hey Mccain, your wing of the party lost, Suck it up. buttercup.

  • Douglas Holbert

    Did Pres. Elect Trump say one word about water boarding? Just another false narrative!

  • Tom Brady

    *high five* John!

    Nice to see there are some decent Republicans left….

  • bob555

    I live in the Phoenix area & this is another piece of SH*T representative I’ve never voted for. He might be a
    ” hero ” for his service in the military, BUT is a TOTAL A*SHOLE as far as a representative of the people of Arizona. RINO all the way.

  • First…….this slimeball is NOT A HERO………….his short time as a so-called POW was in the Hanoi Hilton……what a damn joke……and this pig also destroyed and passed up any and all requests from wives, moms and dads to assist in bringing back thier sons from POW camps……….they all died in silence thanks to this TRAITOR……….

  • while i respect McCain for his service and his years as a POW, i do not agree with his views. he is really a RINO and a closet liberal. he first proved that when he made his token run against Obama and it seemed he did his best to lose. he many votes in the senate shows that he is not a real conservative. he has now reach the point that he needs to retire.

    • David Vranish

      Agree 200%

  • Bernie

    Trump ought to fire his ass before he starts.I =f he isn’t standing with Trump he shouldn’t be there.Period.

  • David Vranish

    If it would give information that would save my son’s life, I’m all for it. And if some dried out loser claims he has mental problems over the idea of it, I say to hell with him. I’m not an Admiral and I couldn’t give my son a free pass!

  • I agree with bob555–I to live in Phoenix and McCain is way pass retirement —I respect his service to this country but in ideas way out of line –this also goes for Flake he is as his last name says is truly a Flake –no more of him when his term is up next year –he does nothing except wanting noritity —-

  • Yvonne Fileccia

    McCAIN HAS NO CAJONES………..HIS WIFE DIVORCED HIM FOR HIS EXTRA MARITAL AFFAIRS…….THEN HE MARRIED ONE OF HIS AFFAIRS………HE IS NO BETTER THAN BILL CLINTON……..McCAIN NEVER WON ANY MEDALS WHILE IN THE SERVICE…….HE GOT HIS MEDALS AFTER BECOMING POLITICAL…….AND HE RECEIVED MORE THAN 8…….HE REQUESTED THEM AND RECEIVED THEM…….THE MEN THAT WERE WITH HIM WENT THRU THE EXACT SAME THING……..THEY NEVER EVEN RECEIVED 1 MEDAL…………

    McCAIN NEW THAT BO WAS AN ILLEGAL AND SAID NOTHING WHILE RUNNING AGAINST HIM……ACTUALLY McCAIN NEVER SAID MUCH OF ANYTHING THAT WAS WORTH HEARING……..MOST OF THE POLITICIANS KNEW BO WAS AN ILLEGAL BACK IN 2001………..IN A VIDEO WHEN MAKING A SPEECH TO A WOMAN’S LEAGUE IN CHICAGO, BO TOLD THEM…..”I WAS BORN IN KENYA”…….I SENT THAT VIDEO TO DONALD TRUMP, SHERIFF JOE, ROMNEY, AND 3 MORE VIP’S………THEY DID NOTHING……….

    THERE IS A WRITTEN LAW AMONG THOSE CORRUPT AND DIRTY POLITICIANS I FOUND, THAT STATE, THEY CANNOT DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION THAT WOULD UNDERMINE A BROTHER POLITICIAN…….THAT INFO IS AVAILABLE ON GOOGLE……..NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY SHERIFF JOE NEVER USED IT, AS BOZO CERTAINLY MADE SHERIFF JOE’S LIFE A LIVING HELL………

    McCAIN IS A CORRUPT & EVIL POLITICIAN AND IS AFRAID THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL FIND OUT HOW HE ACTUALLY GOT HIS MEDALS……OR THE CORRUPT WAYS HE HAS ADOPTED…..

    • Barbara Kelly

      I’M WITH YOU, I THOUGHT HE WAS ON HIS WAY OUT. SO HE DID WIN HIS RE-ELECTION-DAMN. 4 MORE YRS OF HIM —HE IS A DEM THRU AND THRU. HE IS NO REPUBLICAN. I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF HIM.!!!!

  • McCain is turning out to be a POS. He must be mentally unstable from his time in Vietnam. But we can expect that from a loser. And that is what he is…..a loser. Suck it up buddy boy, you never made the grade to be president and you are a loser.

  • I think we should use the same techniques as those used on American prisoners. Tit for tat. Mc Cain is just a loser…he never made the grade and has used his “poor me” time in Vietnam to get where he is……and he is a sympathy case.

  • Mr McCain,
    Being a veteran of the same conflict that you got caught in ( I didn’t ) because you were inept at dodging S A M missiles, you’ve apparently forgotten the fact that these people have no qualms about not only the torture that you lived through, but far worse, before our troops were slaughtered. You forget that these radicals have vowed to kill us in the name of Allah and your worried about a little water boarding to keep our troops alive? Shame on you John. In my opinion you should have retired a long time ago. I didn’t vote for you this time because I don’t believe your experience makes you a good legislator. You won a pity job. Please consider stepping down and make a vacancy for someone that will represent your constituency.

    • Yvonne Fileccia

      OH YEAH………..WATERBOARD THE MF’s………..THEY DON’T HESITATE TO TORTURE OUR BOYS IN THE MILITARY……….CAN’T WAIT TILL THE MUSLIMS AND ILLEGALS ARE PUT BACK IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES……….GUNS & BULLETS BACK IN THE HANDS OF OUR BORDER PATROLS……

      WOULD APPRECIATE NOTHING BUT PORK SOLD IN RESTAURANTS……FAST FOOD PLACES, WITH A BIT OF MIXTURE OF SAUSAGE & HAMBURGER SOLD IN ALL OF THEM……….

  • Bob CaSteel

    McCain you’re A worthless pussy asshole, coarse you don’t have to face an enemy that will blow your ass up, cut off your head or burn you alive in fucking cage! And your sorry ass is worried about a little water boarding get fucking real you spineless pussy. Oh that’s right you were a fucking officer pilot, Never experienced what a grunt has to go through! But you sure care about those rotten raghead muzzy bastards, over American troops! I say genocide those muzzy bastards. Being a Marine, an armor plated fire breathing reptile, if I can’t eat it, havesex with it the must die. They cut off our heads, IED us, suicide bombers, VBIED, and the puss is worried for the muzzy, Oh! Please let’s not pour a little water on the assholes. Gett’em Mr. President Trump! Fuck Up there world, turn it into a living hell! I’d rather use Napalm on those assholes!

  • Richardb

    It is a well established fact that torture never produces reliable information. Never has, never will. People who say that waterboarding and other forms of torture are OK should subject themselves to it so they know what it’s like. Torture is not part of what our nation is all about.

  • depaz

    We’re dealing w/ savages who will behead you and post it on YouTube. So what if they get some water up their nose?

  • James Maxwell

    I can understand John McCain’s objection to torture after what he and others went thru in Vietnam.
    However, I do not see waterboarding while cruel and a mental torture in many respects it is a
    legal manner in which to gather information that may save American lives. As fare as I am concerned
    when it comes to saving American lives against a sworn enemy they had better pray to what ever POS
    they have that I do not catch them. Information gathered in torture is always suspect and questionable
    but there is enough truth in it when the same information is from several sources that you can trust is
    enough to consider and plan action on it.

  • MCAIN IS ONE OF THE PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA, OR HE IS COMPLETY NUTS. HIS TIME IN PRISON MUST BE WORKING ON HIS BRAIN. HE NEVER WAS IN REAL WAR, HE FLEW A PLANE, GOT SHOT DOWN AND WAS PUT IN PRISON, SO, WHAT DOES HE KNOW, OH, HE KNOWS THAT HIS TORTUR DID NOT REVEAL ANY SECRETS, BECAUSE HE DID NOT HAVE ANY. BUT IF TORTUR CAN PREVENT AMERICANS FROM BEING KILLED, TIE THEM DOWN ON ANT HILLS, PULL THEIR FINGER NAILS OUT, DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO STOP THIS KILLING THAT WE ARE HAVING IN THIS COUNTRY. SO, MCCAIN, SHUT UP AND LET A MAN RUN THIS COUNTRY, YOU DO NOT KNOW HOWL. TRUMP WAS RIGHT, YOU ARE NO HERO.

    I PERSONALLY HAD 14 MONTHS IN KOREA, IN 40 BELOW ZERO WEATHER, 3 MONTHS OF SOLID RAIN AND DREW COMBAT EVERY MONTH THAT I WAS THERE OF 40 DOLLARS EXTRA. SO, YOU ARE NO HERO AND NEITHER AM I, SO DONT ACT LIKE YOU ARE CAPABLE OF TELLING TRUMP WHAT TO DO. YOU ARE NOT.

  • G.Matyas

    1. the Geneva convention has not been changed Vetoed by powers that share a common border.
    2. Each Commander should be allowed to get what info that a POW would have to protect his troops..( immediate danger)
    3.Long term it is of little value because what ever info the POW has will be changed within 24 hrs. of his capture.
    4.water boarding was not the only torture that McCain endured, unfortunately that what happens when you become a POW, and how we act will not change how the enemy acts

  • Andre H

    KOREAN WAR VET 51/53 SEND THIS TO ALL YOU KNOW.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA A CONFESSED MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV. A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 (PUBLIC LAW 414, CHAPTER 2, SECTION 212) BANNING ALL MUSLIMS, AND WAR WAS DECLARED ON ISLAM BY PRESIDENT JEFFERSON.

    NOTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IS LEGAL AND CAN BE REDONE.

    IS this is why you OBAMA,

    * didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:

    * spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”

    * spoke of “My Muslim faith.”

    * gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.

    * wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”

    * assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”

    * bowed in submission before the Saudi King.

    * sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

    * exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

    * purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator ” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

    * mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.

    * raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.

    * instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.

    * refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

    * ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.

    * appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

    * said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

    * as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

    * was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.

    * curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

    * refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

    * has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

    * who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

    * funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

    * ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

    * directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.

    * funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.

    * follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.

    * departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.

    * was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

    * appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    * said this country is not a Christian nation.

    * said the Muslim call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.

    * GAVE 150 BILLION PLUS TO IRAN.

    * RANSOMED 4 PEOPLE FOR 400 MILLION.

    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

    GET BEHIND PRESIDENT ELECT DONALD TRUMP, TODAY.

    DEMCRATS, REPUBLICANS, INDEPENDENTS, GOOGLE,(THE CLINTON CHRONICLES), IF YOU LOVE AMERICA YOU WILL LISTEN TO THIS AND THE BELOW ABOUT OBAMAS BIRTH AND THEN RE-SEND TO FRIENDS, LISTEN TO THE END.

    ANGREY PATRIOT REPORTED THAT BILL CLINTONS FORMER MISTRESS SALLY MILER SAID HE SNORTED COKE OFF HER TABLE, AND THAT HILLARY ALSO SNORTED COKE AND SMOKED POT. BILL DID PARDON HIS BRO. FOR DRUG ABUSE. IS THIS TRUE?

    COULD THIS BE WHY THEY DO NOT WANT THE BORDER CLOSED.

    CLICK ON YOUTUBE LISTEN TO OBAMA SAY HE WAS NOT BORN IN THE USA.ON THIS AND LISTEN TO OBAMA SAY HE WAS NOT BORN IN THE USA. BUT WAS BORN IN KENYON WHEN GIVING A SPEECH, THIS CAN BE SEEN ON, GOOGLE (TRUMP AMEN TIME). SO WE DO NOT HAVE A LEGAL PRESIDENT. OBAMA SAID HE WAS A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV & MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM THE USA FOR 200 YEARS, AND AGAIN IN 1952 BY LAW PASSED BY CONGRESS. SO. NO MUSLIM IS HERE LEGALLY.

    PASTORS A PRIVATE FAITH THAT DO NOT ACT WHEN FACED WITH CROOKS, IS NO FAITH AT ALL.

    GOOLE,(THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015) IT IS ABOUT THE CLINTONS, TELL YOUR CHURCH MEMBERS TO GOOGLE IT ALSO.

    TRUMP SAYS HE WILL REPEAL THE LAW THAT STOPS EXAMPTION AND ALLOW CHURCHES AND OTHER ENTITIES THAT ARE BARRED TODAY TO HAVE FREE SPEECH AND NOT LOSE THEIR EXEMPTIONS.

    IS THIS WHY THE DEMOCRATS AND SOME REPUBLICANS DO NOT WANT TO CLOSE THE BORDER BECAUSE OF CUTTING OFF THEIR SUPPLY OF DOPE.

    BET YOU WILL NOT LISTEN TO ALL OF THIS. IT TELLS ABOUT MURDER, COCAINE PARTIES, UNDERAGE SEX, SEX PARTIES, MONEY LAUNDREY AND DOPE RUNNING FROM JUDGES, STATE OFFICIALS, ETC.

  • Who cares what McCann thinks about anything. Mchannel can go where the sun don’t shine.

  • Bob Wilson

    McCain is a horses ass. The only reason he got elected was that enough people had to swallow their true feelings so that the dems did not get control of the senate.

  • McCain. I can understand why you are not in favor of waterboarding. Probably from POW time. I cannot understand why we as a country should take every action necessary to wen information fro an enemy that murdering Christians and young children. Maybe you did not see the horrible photos of ISIS running over a very young boy with a tank. Thy did to show there prisoners that they will go any torture necessary to get what they want. We have to fight fire with fire if we can every expect to win this war with ISIS.

  • McCain. I can understand your personal feeling against waterboarding considering your POW status and that is fine. Now is not the time to be concerned about an enemy that would run over a young boy with a tank just to get what the want from there captives. We have to fight fire with fire and also do what ever it takes to win this prolonged war with ISIS. We now have a commander in chief that will do just that and you must support his efforts.

  • John McCain needs to go back to his Neanderthal cave and contemplate his belly button.

  • Why doesn’t somebody put this old fool in a nursing home

  • Seems unanimous—–McCain is a farce.
    Not one single comment in support of McCain’s anti-water boarding comment.
    Doubt the curmudgeon Johnny Boy will recant—-he’s too prideful.
    He and McConnell are the 2 best reasons for term limits.
    Poor AZ voted this slob back into office for 6 more years.
    Doubt he’ll serve that time, may drown in DC Kool-Aid first.

  • Mr Mccain, if you do not believe in inhanced interrogation, why in the world don,t you just shut your mouth and disappear because every time you open your stupid mouth you torture me and take that know nothing daughter with you.

  • SCOTTY MAC

    McCain was hurt when he Ditched HIS PLANE AND NOT TORTURED.
