An Open Letter To Senator John McCain

Dear Senator McCain:

Thank you for finally revealing your true colors. You are a progressive disguised as a Republican. Your defense of the news media was a complete sham.

You have been inside the Washington, D.C., bubble for so long you didn’t notice that American lost its free press years ago. On Meet the Press, you stated that in order to “preserve democracy” we must have a free press. But journalism in the United States dies years ago. All we have now are propagandists and stenographers who parrot left wing dogma, and use the exact same language to attack Republicans.

You also stated that without a free press you were “afraid we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time.” We have been losing our individual liberties for quite some time. Where have you been? President Obama’s administration produced 28,239 new regulations covering 201,046 pages in the Federal Register. Regulations are a proxy for socialism and fascism, both big government totalitarian philosophies.

The closest America has come to a totalitarian dictatorship is Barack Obama and one party rule which produced an economic stimulus that failed to stimulate the economy, rescuing auto makers by stealing the companies from the true owners and giving it to the unions, sweeping financial regulations which made it harder for banks to operation, and, of course Obamacare, which essentially destroyed the job market.

In December 2008, the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed labor force non-participation at 80,380,000 people. November 2016 showed the non-participation rate at 95,055,000 people. Nearly 15,000,000 people lost their jobs under Obamacare.

You stated that the first thing dictators’ do is shut down a free press. When you no longer have a free press, when you have a news media reporting bogus stories, slanting stories in favor of a particular political philosophy, it is so much easier for a new president, especially one never vetted, to act like a dictator.

You tried to walk back your accusation, stating, “I’m not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator.” But that is exactly what you said. Donald Trump has been in office one month and the only thing he is doing is fulfilling his promises he made to the American people. Barack Obama dictatorial style has left America with more debt than all his predecessors combined.

Barack Obama’s dictatorial style left America with a middle east more inflamed than ever before, a Russia more emboldened that ever before, and a China more belligerent than ever before. And all you can do smear our President?

Then you have the temerity to go to Munich and attack our President in a foreign land. You talk of universal values; Donald Trump speaks to American values. You speak of hardening of attitudes towards Muslims; Donald Trump speaks of improving national security for all Americans from radical Islamists, not Muslims in general.

You stated that the founders of the Munich conference “would be alarmed that more and more of our fellow citizens seem to be flirting with authoritarianism and romanticsizing (sic) it as our moral imperative.” Your speaking of western nations having the power to maintain our world order smacks of international socialism or globalism.

This is exactly in keeping with your progressive philosophy. I want a strong America. I want a freer America. I approve of dismantling Obamacare and turning back socialistic regulations. You obviously believe in more regulation.

Your values are not my values, and my values are American values. So, where does that put you? Once upon a time you were a hero. Today, you are just one more dishonest politician corrupted by a career inside the Washington, D.C. bubble.

You abandoned Donald Trump during the presidential campaign. Today, I abandon you.

Your progressive philosophy does not represent any American values.

How sad.

  1. And, after getting reelected for 6 more years little Johnnie doesn’t care about the state or nation. Its all about him and his ego. He hates Trump and everything he stands for. Secure borders, enhanced vetting of refugees, American jobs and the promise of a better future. Johnnie is about globalism and open borders. He is about the establishment and do nothing senate. He hates to get the boat rocked and above all he is the poster child for term limits.

    • Amen jdfast! I agree completely. Don’t know why Arizonans keep voting him in. He’s a had been. We need term limits.

    #recalljohn

    Can we?

    He wasn’t re-elected by choice, he was re-elected out
    necessity to keep Kirkpatrick out of the Senate. Once Kelly Ward lost in the primary, little Johnny was the lessor of the two bad choices left.
    Had he simply retired, Kelly Ward would have that seat.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    For what?

    TOoT

    • I sure hope so – I’d like to sign that document – RECALL McCAIN

      • Unfortunately we can’t recall him but I would love to see him leave in disgrace by impeaching him and removing him from office that way

  5. Working Man Blues | February 20, 2017 at 6:19 am |

    As a staunch supporter of independent political views both little Johnnie and his sidekick peewee Raul represent the worst of Arizonas congressmen. They are the poster duo of what is wrong with Washington and why term limits should be the gold standard.

  6. In 2011 Senator Russel Pearce was recalled. Citizens for a better Az turned in over 18000 signatures to recall Pearce. Gov. Brewer called for a special election to recall Pearce in November. Repub Jerry Lewis ( not the comedian) ran against him and won.
    Just a little food for thought.

    • Will sign any petition I see to get him out because he will only be a hindrance to this administration. He should be ashamed of himself for what is going on at the Phoenix VA. He always comments how bad things are but does NOTHING as if he has no influence whatsoever. He’s a typical career politician and I certainly wouldn’t call him a hero. Thanks for his service, sorry he was captured and that’s it. This guy is not a conservative and should not pretend he is.

  7. Senator Mc Cain,
    I support this letter. You should support President Trump. I am a Independent Arizonan voted for you and President Trump to restore our country. If you can not support his agenda, I want you to immediately retire from the Senate as your position will nor help restore Arizona or America.

  8. By every Political Measure, Senator John McCain is a Political Conservative. In his evaluation of Donald Trump, to Senator McCain’s credit, he as put his Political Partisanship aside and states what he believes is in the best interests of our Country. The ADI Political Views are set in Concrete; with the inability to Objectively Evaluate what Donald is dong, and has done to our Political/Social System.

    Mr. Trump, I my view, is NOT fit to service in the Office of President of the United States. He is Mentally Unstable and
    has undermined the very nature of our Constitutional Democracy with Three Co-Equal Branches of Government as well as the Free Press; as Senator McCain has stated.

    Trump’s statements regarding Russia and his “Friendship” with the Thug Putin threatens the National Security of our Country.

    It remains to be determined the nature of the contacts He and
    his Minions have had with Russia before, during, and after the Presidential Election. His statements during the Election encouraging Russia to hack Servers of the DNC and
    Mrs. Clinton are sufficient, in my view, in making him Complicit in undermining the validity of this Election and are sufficient Grounds for His Impeachment. This, of course, is a decision that Congress will make when these Congressional Investigations are Complete.

    All Partisanship Must be put aside in the evaluation of the evidence and in determining if Donald Trump should be removed for Office.

    • Get over it you lost. Obama already set such a low standard for the Presidency that anyone else would have to dig for years just to see the light of day.
      You folks on the left need to read what partisanship really is. It is not that we all need to agree with the left or else.
      That is what the leftist media sent out everyday since Nixon. That is what President Trump is telling the media. I may not agree with his tactics but if it pisses of the left it is working!

    • Working Man Blues | February 20, 2017 at 9:48 am |

      That’s too funny. If you had changed the names to indict Obama and or the clintons. You would have described exactly how I felt the last 8+ years about them. Only difference Then and now I accepted the fact the country voted these people into office. I simply was in the minority.

    • You seem to forget Obama’s statement to Putin that he’d have more flexibility after the 2012 election. He was also sucking up to Putin!

    • You are absolutely right! I am an independent and I believe all people have free press! Putin is a thug!

  9. John McCain, has everyone forgotten the Keating 5 which McCain was one trying to stop investigation into the failed Lincoln Savings and Loan. McCain and his buddies blead it dry then tried to cover it up.

    Then remember the Baptist Foundation going broke because of Wolfswinkle land deals and the McCain cronies.

    Take a moment and think about the protection McCain received from Janet napalitano when she was U.S. attorney for Arizona. No McCain is in the same bed as the Clintons milking the public dollars.

    Trump says drain the swamp, well McCain is a good place to start. It’s no wonder he doesn’t like Trump.

  10. Thank you for the well written letter. I’m all in on getting McCain out.

  11. I commend McCain for his service to our country. He did his duty.
    However, that is past news. He is not the same man that went to war.
    He has been a politician for far too long.
    He is a part of what Washington calls the MAIN STREAM.
    What exactly does that mean? Doing it the Democrats way, or you don’t count.
    McCain has become part of the swamp.
    Very sad.
    Go home McCain, and collect your full benefits for the rest of you life, paid for of course by the American Taxpayers.

  12. BillyP, I beg to differ with you on one point. I think McLame is exactly the same man who went to war.

    He was a dud at the Naval Academy, a dud in flight school, a dud when he almost sank the Forrestal, a dud when he did his “Tokyo Rose” recording a dud when he had information about POWs and MIAs classified so no one could look at the record and see his transgressions.

    N, I’m afraid he’s still the same man who left his long suffering wife after she waited years to be reunited to marry a wealthy woman with connections in Arizona.

    In fact, I’m not even sure he was a man at all when he went to war, but I know he isn’t now!

  13. Oh please, McCain a liberal? We as a nation started losing tons of rights starting with Reagan, but yet no mention of what the Patriot Act did to our rights; a gift from Bush. You guys hate Obama so much that you can’t see that things were going downhill a long time before Obama came into office. I hope that your love of Trump helps when the bill comes in for all of his vacations and the security costs for all of his palaces. One month in and he has had 3 weekend vacations; so called working, but he could be doing that at the White House. You would be all over that had that been Obama.

  14. The solution to McCain – don’t vote for Flake. Flake is just his little windup doll……..

  15. I refused to vote for McCain and wrote in Kelly Ward in the last election. I hope she beats Flake. If he loses, maybe McCain will see the writing on the wall.

  16. jonny chingas | February 20, 2017 at 9:25 pm |

    Wouldn’t it have been great to see McCain fight Obama as tough and tenacious as McCain fights President Trump, the Tea Party, conservatives and his own party?

  17. Magda Roberts | February 21, 2017 at 2:09 pm |

    I believe that McCain should retire, go home, and stay out of politics as usual. And to those who accuse Trump of spending tax payers money on vacations, remember Trump’s commitment to forfeit his presidential salary(about $400,000.00 per year, and to accept only one $ instead, toeet the requirements of the law, that he was paid for his services as POTUS. So, stop maligning our president.

  18. John McCain has become a disgrace as our Senator. He preaches conservative values when he is campaigning and turns liberal when he gets back to DC. I have two words for you John, SHUT UP!

  19. Mr McCain, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you

  20. Orion Bennett | February 21, 2017 at 5:27 pm |

    Governor Doug Ducey has a petition to remove Senator john mccain. I would eagerly suggest that everyone finds and signs it …. mccain is no longer serving the constituents of his state, and is becoming a thorn in the side of our President. He needs to be removed from office immediately. Much of this is about spite. He is angry at Donald Trump for doing what he could not do, beating down the liberal entity.

  21. LD 11 Daniel | March 1, 2017 at 11:44 am |

    Someone should verify, though I do believe AZ law allows for the recall of an elected US Senator. It falls under State law. Though remember, we have another AZ Senator that is a democrat with an R next to his name. Efforts should be made to ensure Ward defeats the “Fake”.

  22. Senator McCain, our country is heading under dictatorship. Keep doing what you are doing and do not pay attention to the negative naysayers. Trump is trying to distract the country from the Russia investigation. If he revealed his taxes all of this could be resolved. Keep up the great work you are doing and be encouraged. We need republican fighters such as you to get this investigation done.

  23. delores tell us which ‘rino fighters’ you are referring to. Its a much needed knowledge base that needs to be shared. Mclame has done nothing for the state of az in his 30+ years as a professional politician. He has made his friends richer and gotten richer himself but thats about it. As to calling them friends its more like his OWNERS got richer at our expense. Yes he ran for prez, but didn’t put much effort into it. The best thing he did IMO was pick the lady to be his running mate, but he then hung her out to dry as his candidacy was a fake one at best. Much like goldwater in ’64 he was the goat for bho to roast. Thats why he claimed he (bho0 is a good christian man or words to that effect. No he was told what to do by the owners and the goal was to ensure bho was elected and he did as he was told and quietly slipped back into the senate seat he should have VACATED to run. But since he knew he was the goat, he did not and ensured his INCOME for at least another term.
