    Interesting reading about McCain....


    "John McCain's home is in Arizona. Not bad for a man who worked in the
    military, left the military, and then ran for Congress. He has been in
    Congress since 1983... for 34 years.



    McCain graduated 894th in his class of 899 students from the Naval Academy!
    He was known for being wild and it usually revolved around women. He was a
    member of a group of students who called themselves "The Bad Bunch".



    He married Carol Shepp who was a successful swimsuit model. She had been
    married to one of his classmates and had two children from her first
    marriage. She and McCain became parents for a daughter one year later. He
    had been quite a playboy and was already becoming bored with the
    domesticated life. He requested active duty in Vietnam. While he was there,
    Carol faithfully stayed at home looking after the children and waiting
    anxiously for news about her husband. His plane was shot down in 1967 and
    he became a POW.



    On Christmas Eve 1969, Carol and the children were spending the holiday
    with her parents. After dinner she was going to take gifts to some friends.
    The road was icy and she slid head-on into a telephone pole. She was thrown
    from the car through the front window. Her legs, spine, and right arm were
    crushed and she was in the hospital for 6 months. Ross Perot was an
    advocate of POW's and he paid her medical bills. She requested that John
    not be told because she felt he already had enough to deal with.



    McCain was released in 1973 and returned home to much fanfare. Carol had
    several surgeries, lost 5 inches in height, and gained some weight...
    McCain told reporters he was overjoyed to see Carol again. But friends say
    privately he was ‘appalled’ by the change in her appearance.



    As a war hero, McCain was moving in ever-more elevated circles. "He started
    carousing and running around with women.", reported Robert Timberg. Bob
    Timberg was a retired Marine, an American journalist, writer, and author of
    four books, including THE NIGHTINGALE'S SONG and JOHN MCCAIN: AN AMERICAN
    ODYSSEY.
    McCain admitted he started having many girlfriends and affairs during this
    time. On one trip to Hawaii he met an Anheuser Busch distributer heiress,
    Cindy Hensley, at a cocktail party. She was 17 years younger than McCain
    and worth $100 million dollars. He invited her to have drinks with him at
    the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. He said by the end of the evening he was in love.



    They had an affair for nine months while he was still married to and living
    with his wife Carol. McCain wanted to marry Cindy but needed first to get a
    divorce. He and Carol separated in January 1980. He requested a divorce in
    February, the divorce was sped along and granted in April. He and Cindy
    married 5 weeks after the divorce was final on May 17, 1980. Carol and
    their children were devastated. McCain callously left his first wife and
    children behind. He and Cindy moved to Arizona. Cindy's father was
    well-connected and helped McCain move smoothly into Congress representing
    Arizona in Washington DC.



    McCain's new wife and her family were extravagantly wealthy. Her father was
    one of the largest distributors of Anheuser Busch in the country and she
    was an only child. The divorce settlement afforded Carol McCain full
    custody of their three children, alimony, child support, including college
    tuition, houses in Virginia and Florida, and lifelong financial support for
    her continuing medical treatment from the car accident.



    Carol said the reason for the divorce was John turned 40 and he wanted to
    be 25 again. Carol was extremely hurt. She went to work as the press
    assistant for soon-to-be First Lady Nancy Reagan. She became loved and
    respected in Washington. She kept a dignified silence about the horrendous
    way McCain had treated her.



    Some of the McCain friends were less forgiving, however They portray the
    politician as a self-centred womaniser who effectively abandoned his
    crippled wife to ‘play the field’. They accuse him of finally settling on
    Cindy, a former rodeo beauty queen, for financial reasons.



    Despite his popularity as a politician, there are those who have not
    forgotten his treatment of his first wife. Ted Sampley, who fought with US
    Special Forces in Vietnam is now a leading campaigner for veterans’ rights.



    Ted said, "I have been following John McCain’s career for nearly 20 years.
    I know him personally. There is something wrong with this guy and let me
    tell you what it is... deceit.
    "When he came home and saw that Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he
    started running around on her almost right away. Everybody around him knew
    it. Eventually he met Cindy and she was young, beautiful, and very wealthy.
    McCain just dumped Carol for something he thought was better.

    "This is a guy who makes such a big deal about his character. Yet he has no
    character. He is a fake."



    Ross Perot, who paid her medical bills all those years ago, now believes
    that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man
    who is unusually slick and cruel, even by the standards of modern politics.

    Mr. Perot said, "McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching
    for attention and glory.

    After he came home, Carol walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a
    poster girl with big money from Arizona. And the rest is history.



    A man who cannot be faithful to a loving, self-sacrificing wife cannot be
    trusted to be faithful to the American people.



    Cindy has also had to learn the lessons about her husband the hard way.
    Even though she and McCain put on a perfect front for the public,
    especially when he is running for office, she really is an invisible wife
    to him.



    Tom Gosinski, who served as director of Cindy McCain’s nonprofit American
    Voluntary Medical Team (AVMT) wrote in his journal about the McCain
    marriage:

    "During my short tenure at AVMT I have been surrounded by what on the
    surface appears to be the ultimate all-American family. In reality, I am
    working for a very sad, lonely woman. Her marriage of convenience to a U.S.
    Senator has driven her to distance herself from friends, cover feelings of
    despair with drugs, and replace lonely moments with self-indulgences. She
    became addicted to Percocet and had a doctor prescribing them for her
    illegally. When her parents learned she was taking them, they helped her
    stop.



    Washington rumors were saying McCain had an inappropriate relationship with
    the young and lovely lobbyist, Vicki Iseman. Ms. Iseman began visiting
    McCain's offices and campaign events so frequently in 2000 that his aides
    were "convinced the relationship had become romantic". One staff member
    supposedly asked, "Why is she always around?" His staff members began a
    campaign to "save McCain from himself" by restricting Iseman's access to
    McCain during the course of the 2000 presidential primary. According to the
    Washington Post, McCain's political advisor John Weaver met with Iseman at
    Washington's Union Station to tell Iseman not to see McCain anymore.



    It is not a real marriage between John and Cindy McCain. Real marriages
    usually involve living together. McCain and Cindy have not "lived" together
    for 20 years. To defend this, McCain brags the family takes two vacations
    together every year and Ms. McCain is the one who has always made that
    happen."



    Two vacations per year...What a farse and fake!! Nothing about this man is
    real. He has no compassion or empathy for anyone except himself. The only
    real thing emotion he is capable of is anger. He is famous for his anger.



    His father and grandfather were both decorated Navy Admirals. He was given
    special privileges and extreme preferential treatment while he served in
    the Navy. He was a pilot but according to his colleagues he was a very bad
    pilot. He actually crashed three planes. There was a horrendous incident
    that happened on his aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. Forrestal, that killed
    134 men. There has been a debate since the incident with some being
    convinced John McCain was responsible for this accident. Others are angry
    about anyone who would dare speak against a Naval officer and embarrass an
    entire branch of service.



    Many witnesses have reported that McCain was guilty of a "wet start". When
    a pilot wants to be a show off, with a "wet start" his engine start creates
    a large startling flame and lots of surprise noise from the rear of a jet
    engine on start up. McCain did the "Wet Start". It was not an accident. The
    flames from the wet start torched off the launching of a powerful Zuni
    rocket on the plane behind him. The Zuni rockets were famous for having
    electrical problems. It shot across the carrier’s deck hitting other parked
    planes that were packing 1,000 high-explosive pound bombs. This caused the
    bombs to explode. The subsequent massive explosions, fire and destruction
    went several decks below and nearly sunk this major 82,000 ton U.S.
    aircraft carrier.



    This stunt and aftermath caused the death of 134 sailors and blew off arms,
    legs, and caused blindness and burns to another 161 sailors. McCain jumped
    from his plane, rolled across the flames, and escaped. He watched the men
    dying and the burning from a closed circuit television on the ship. Sadly
    all of those lives were lost.



    They had to take the ship off the battle line for 2 years when it had to be
    taken back to port for $76 million dollars of extensive repairs. That does
    not include the cost of replacing the airplanes or ammunition.



    Other Navy pilots causing this type of death and destruction would have
    been arrested and would probably still be in prison. Why didn't this
    happened to John McCain?

    McCain's grandfather was a famous FOUR STAR Navy admiral and his dad, at
    the time of the incident, was also a powerful illustrious FOUR STAR Navy
    admiral. McCain had graduated from the Naval Academy. Witnesses say the
    good ole boy Navy tradition went into high gear immediately. McCain was not
    even reprimanded. When there is a cover-up, the soldier is usually simply
    assigned to another ship. McCain was quietly assigned to another ship.
    There is an ongoing debate about the incident to this day.



    John McCain's lack of character was further demonstrated when he voted not
    to repeal Obamacare. He had run his 2016 Senatorial race under the banner
    he would LEAD the fight to repeal Obamacare. He hates Donald Trump so very
    much he gleefully held his thumb down for his vote rather than a thumbs up
    He laughed afterwards and said, "Let's see Donald Trump save America now!"


    What a horrible man. He stabbed his constituents and the citizens of
    America in the back. Liberal socialists now call him their hero.



    Prick.

    Was within a candid earshot of this loser one time and did not like at all what I heard. A ferocious temper tantrum. Apparently his wife had shown up during a pre-rally. We were working on the communications in a back closet. We hear someone go off and look around the corner and It's John yelling at everyone because his wife had showed up. No idea why it upset him so much but he was completely out of control. Lost all respect for him right there.
