Looks like McCain is probably going to die soon. I know about this sort of tumor. I lost a dear friend to this tragic disease. There is no cure but medical intervention can somewhat lengthen the life. It is very sad diagnosis. This will change the dynamics of the Senate for McCain is a top Bilderberg buddy and has been attacking Trump nonstop. I prefer people win political battles via dispute and reason but often the Fates have more power than mere humans.
There is going to be quite a fight over all this, Arizona is a ‘tip from one side to the other’ state, big time. I have personally known previous Arizona Senators due to my father’s activities, knew them very well, that is, Barry Goldwater and Mo Udall.
Goldwater returned to the Senate in 1969, and specialized in defense policy, bringing to the table his experience as a senior officer in the Air Force Reserve. In 1974, as an elder statesman of the party, Goldwater successfully urged President Richard Nixon to resign when evidence of a cover-up in the Watergate scandal became overwhelming and impeachment was imminent. By the 1980s, the increasing influence of the Christian right on the Republican Party so conflicted with Goldwater’s views that he became a vocal opponent of the religious right on issues such as abortion, gay rights, and the role of religion in public life. After narrowly winning re-election to the Senate in 1980, he chose not to run for a sixth term in 1986, and was succeeded by fellow Republican John McCain.
Barry was better than McCain, in my eyes. He was also a very good friend of my father. I believe Trump wishes to be more like Barry Goldwater, not Barry Obama. But the media will hound him mercilessly no matter who he copies. He isn’t a Bilderberg co-conspirator, after all.
I always found it rather amusing how Arizona’s Senators make big waves in DC. For example, Carl Hayden knew my grandfather back in the early days before Arizona became a state…and he was still Senator which I was a child. He was in DC since 1912 when Arizona became a state and stopped when he died in 1972, age 94. A tough old bird, that man. And a Democrat of the Old School before the 1964 switcheroo.
Odd point here, during the frontier days, Hayden went to my elementary school in Tempe…his old vulture visage was prominently displayed in our schools back then…hehehe.
Well, McCain did many things, I disagree with some, especially his recent attempts at starting WWIII which I cannot bear, it pisses me off to even think about it…that erases much possible good thinking about him, I greatly resent him trying to get us all KILLED for STUPID REASONS. Gah. Oh, to hell with him. How dare he do this? It would be the crime of the eons, forget ‘century’.
