McCain repeats call for Jones Act repeal

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday repeated his call to repeal the Jones Act after the Trump administration announced a temporary lift on shipping restrictions for Puerto Rico as it recovers from Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

“Trump admin has finally waived #JonesAct for #PuertoRico. Now Congress must repeal this law to aid long-term recovery,” McCain wrote on Twitter.

Lawmakers this week have pushed for a one-year waiver of the law, which mandates that American-owned and -operated vessels transport cargo between U.S. ports, so that Puerto Rico can receive much-needed aid after being battered by two major hurricanes in the last month.

McCain this week re-upped his call to repeal the law, which he has called “archaic and burdensome.”

“It is unacceptable to force the people of Puerto Rico to pay at least twice as much for food, clean drinking water, supplies and infrastructure due to Jones Act requirements as they work to recover from this disaster,” the senator wrote in a letter to acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke.

    Anything McCain is a proponent for should measured with great scrutiny. His liberal politics cause great consternation for America. He seems to be against anything that benefits the nation and for those things that harm us.

    • 2Deep4_U

      He is against Trump that’s our greatest threat .

  • Ah nutz

    they’re paying ???? bs

  • Mike Golden

    I had never heard of the Jones Act before this disaster. McCain said it was archaic and burdensome law, just sounds stupid to me. When they say archaic they mean old, so must be it was named after John Paul Jones. I appears to be stifling competition and driving up prices for the people of Puerto Rico just the very thing Trump is against.

      You are what is truly called a sick person like the Las Vegas shooter. Attacking a person due to his/her health is beyond contempt.

      • Ron C

        Having concern for a fellow RINO, would only be seen as sick, by a hateful liberal…as it will be found out that the Vegas shooter was a liberal hater…sad.

        • URWorstNightmare

          It’s called having concern for a fellow human being. Something you obviously know little about. With you political types it always comes down to labeling. If the Vegas shooter was indeed a liberal hater then by all means you are describing country music as music of the left as some would describe rap or rock. Boy! Are you way off. How would that make the shooter of Scalise and his fellow teammates a liberal hater just because he used a gun as the Las Vegas shooter did. You seem to be describing all gun owners of which I myself am one as Liberal haters of which you most likely are from the sounds of your post.

          • Ron C

            Now, now, now…it seems the liberal haters think using the guns against their fellow Americans is the answer…its not the guns fault…its the liberal hater’s pulling the trigger, who is at fault!

        • 2Deep4_U

          You and Trump make the Vegas Shooter look like an angel.

          Hey URWorst… McCain has been a subversive traitor since Vietnam. His last days (and final days, thank GOD) in Congress have been one and only one vindictive mission ~ to destroy the Presidency of Donald J Trump by what ever means possible. He got butt hurt and had his ego bruised when Donald Trump commented directly about ‘hero’ John McCain, by saying I prefer war heroes who don’t get caught by the enemy early in the war and become Treasonous POWs for the enemy. The truth hurts, the truth humiliates, the truth “outs” traitors and those giving comfort and aid to the enemy. John, your whole life is a lie and your fellow POWs watched what you did in Hanoi ~ AND THEY DIDN’T FORGET AND THEY HAVE NOT REMAINED QUIET, HAVE THEY? Your treachery has earned YOU a slow, painful certain DEATH. You have well earned the long, slow and painful metamorphosis into foul human corpse jelly. You are a vile and degenerate excuse for a human being. JUST DIE! Think I’m being too harsh, URWorst? Na-a-a-a-a-h!

          • Artemis

            Deplorable….The things that you just said are all true, and I remember when all of that broke in the news. Where on God’s green earth did all of these “younger” people ever get the bright idea that McCain was a “War Hero”. If I might add to your comment, I do believe that his “co-prisoners” at the Hanoi Hilton that he “squealed” on were Tortured because of him, and as I recall, I think it was mentioned that some of them died as a result of torture/beatings! Mr. McCain probably has “American Blood” on his hands, and they think of him as a “Hero”? It’s amazing how many of the American People have been duped by our “wonderful” Government!!!

            McCain Used his father and grandfather to get into the Naval Academy, graduated fifth from the bottom of his class! Did a wet burn on his plane and killed 27 veterans and injured 100 veterans! Transferred and shot down, ejected wrong at that breaking both his arms! While in captivity his veterans there said he was never abused! His interrogators nickname McCain songbird! And as a result of that, McCain has voted against all veteran programs, to not securing our borders, and arming terrorist unsuccessfully and called people of Arizonaians crazies! The guy is a RINO liberal and a Tratior. Here’s his Navy Records..

            Navy Releases McCain’s Records

            USS Forrestal, July 29, 1967 – The worst accident aboard a US Navy surface vessel since WWII

            BY WAYNE MADSEN/WAYNE MADSEN REPORT

            The Navy released John McCain’s military record after a Freedom of Information Act request from the Associated Press. The record is packed with information on McCain’s medals and commendations but little else. The one thing that the McCain campaign does not want to see released is the record of McCain’s antics on board the USS Forestal in 1967. McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy. That catastrophe, with 27 dead and over 100 wounded trumps McCain’s record as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.

            WMR has learned additional details regarding the deadly fire aboard the Navy aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal, on July 19, 1967 in the Gulf of Tonkin. The additional details point to then-Lt. Commander John McCain playing more of a role in triggering the fire and explosions than previously reported.

            On January 16, 2006, WMR reported that according to a US Navy sailor who was aboard the Forrestal on the fateful day of the fire, “McCain and the Forrestal’s skipper, Capt. John K. Beling, were warned about the danger of using M-65 1000-lb. bombs manufactured in 1935, which were deemed too dangerous to use during World War II and, later, on B-52 bombers. The fire from the Zuni missle misfire resulted in the heavy 1000 pound bombs being knocked loose from the pylons of McCain’s A-4 aircraft, which were only designed to hold 500-pound bombs.”

            WMR further reported, “The unstable bombs had a 60-second cook-off threshold in a fire situation and this warning was known to both Beling and McCain prior to the disaster.” WMR also cited the potential that McCain’s Navy records were used against him by the neo-cons in control of the Pentagon, “The neo-cons, who have had five years to examine every file within the Department of Defense, have likely accessed documents that could prove embarrassing to McCain, who was on board the USS Forrestal on July 29, 1967, and whose A-4 Skyhawk was struck by an air-toground Zuni missile that had misfired from an F-4 Phantom.”

            WMR has been informed that crewmen aboard the Forrestal have provided additional information about the Forrestal incident. It is believed by many crewmen and those who have investigated the case that McCain deliberately “wet-started” his A-4E to shake up the guy in the plane behind his A-4. “Wet-starts”, done either deliberately or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft.

            In McCain’s case, the “wet-start” apparently “cooked off” and launched the Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that touched off the explosions and massive fire. The F-4 pilot was reportedly killed in the conflagration. “Wet starting” was apparently a common practice among young “hot-dog” pilots.

            McCain was quickly transferred to the USS Oriskany (the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred). Three months later, McCain was shot down over North Vietnam on October 26, 1967.

            As WMR previously reported, at the time of the Forrestal disaster, McCain’s father, Admiral John McCain, Jr., was Commander-in-Chief of US Naval Forces Europe (CINCUSNAVEUR) and was busy covering up the details of the deadly and pre-meditated June 8, 1967, Israeli attack on the NSA spy ship, the USS Liberty.

            The fact that both McCains were involved in two incidents just weeks apart that resulted in a total death count of 168 on the Forrestal and the Liberty, with an additional injury count of 234 on both ships (with a number of them later dying from their wounds) with an accompanying classified paper trail inside the Pentagon, may be all that was needed to hold a Sword of Damocles over the head of the “family honor”-oriented McCain by the neo-cons

            This is the kind of argument I have mentioned before, that reinforces the stereotype of white men as innate racists. I don’t think I would care to live in your neighborhood, since I have said before that I reject the notion of ANY race’s innate superiority over another. We’re all brothers and sisters under the skin, and the world would be better if we accepted that. The proper response to foul-mouthed declarations of ignorant black racism is not the same declarations of ignorant white racism. I’ll tell you what I told “2Deep”-drop the attitude and the racist posing and support your arguments with FACTS for a change, and you might earn a little respect from your peers(unless, of course, they really ARE the ignorant racists you claim they are, in which case your racist cheap shots will probably earn you tons of “street cred” in your “hood”).

          • acs1949

            There certainly IS such a thing as a black racist-a whole bunch of them called “Black Lives Matter”, who fit the classic definition of racism by hating all white people just for being white. You would do well to remember Dr, King’s “I have a dream” speech in 1963. He wished for a world where a man was judged”not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character”. That is the statement of a true leader, and one to which I wholeheartedly subscribe. How is a black man who hates whites for being white not a racist? I reject the entire notion of any race’s innate ‘superiority” over any other, and strive to judge by character alone, which makes me dislike you quite a lot, since you could use an infusion of character if anybody could. Why don’t you drop the attitude and the foul-mouthed posing and present some FACTS to support your arguments?

            Maybe, maybe not…but a soldier’s job is to go where he’s told to go and serve without whining. I admit I’m not a veteran, but I know some guys who served honorably in that war and don’t waste their time sniveling about it. The only shame of Vietnam is that the government decided to cut and run and abandon our POW’;s and our Vietnamese allies to their fate.

    So basically he fails to comprehend that Puerto Rico is NOT A STATE but wants it treated as if it was one.

    • 2Deep4_U

      You’re one IGNORANT SOB

      • Terry Butts

        “Statehood issue On July 23, 1967, the first plebiscite on the political status of Puerto Rico was held. Voters overwhelmingly affirmed continuation of Commonwealth status (with 60.4% voting to remain a commonwealth, 39% voting to work towards statehood. Other referendums have been subsequently held to determine the political
        status of Puerto Rico, in 1993 and in 1998. In all three of these, the status quo has been upheld; there was no strong feeling in favor of independence or statehood.”

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Puerto_Rico

        The more RECENT vote to become a state also failed

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rican_status_referendum,_2017

        Knowing the difference between an unincorporated territory and a STATE is not ignorance.

        Thinking an unincorporated territory should be treated as if it is just another state however is just that.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territories_of_the_United_States

        “US constitution article IV section 3 and 4

        SECTION 3.
        1 New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

        2 The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.

        SECTION 4.

        The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence. ”

        https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CDOC-110hdoc50/pdf/CDOC-110hdoc50.pdf

        The CONSTITUTION clearly defines the difference between STATE and TERRITORY.

        Until they become a state they do not get the same legal treatment as if they are one when it come to trade etc.

        The entire purpose of the Jones act is still valid it was simply TEMPORARILY waived so that assistance for recovery from storm damage could be facilitated. Those wanting to REVOKE it permanently want to give Puerto Rico the PRIVILEGES of statehood without them actually becoming a state thus avoiding the RESPONSIBILITIES that come with being a state while getting the benifits of being one.

          • Terry Butts

            FALSE it was created by 250+ people who TOSSED their former government out by force to get away from the TYRANNY of its completely ignoring even the basic rights of the PEOPLE spelled out in the magna carta. The KING even referred to it as just an old parchment that gets in the way at one point.

            Slavery only stayed because of SOUTHERN democrats that did not want to give up their profits from treating ANYONE sold as a slave (including Indians, Chinese, and yes even some white people) as if they were nothing more than farm animals. They conned the rest into thinking the American ECONOMY would be destroyed if slavery was abolished outright so they could KEEP the SLAVES that ENGLISH LAW of the time had allowed them to hold. IF this sounds familiar it is because they are using the SAME ARGUMENT TODAY to prevent tax reform.

            Frankly I am tired of IDIOTS LIKE YOU who REFUSE to think for themselves or even do ACTUAL research into a topic before SPOUTING propaganda carrying on about LONG DEAD PEOPLE and the fact they OBEYED the laws of their time instead of VIOLATING them like some activist from today. Who do you think ENDED SLAVERY because it was not the slaves that authored then RATIFIED the CONSTITUTIONAL amendment that many of the founders wanted in the constitution to begin with that abolished slavery.

            The biggest lies spouted by such people is that “all whites of that time owned slaves” and that somehow (DESPITE COMPLETE CONFISCATION OF PROPERTY FROM SLAVE OWNERS AFTER THE CIVIL WAR) people exist today that somehow benefit from slavery despite it being outlawed MORE THAN A CENTURY before most of them were born and NOTHING they have came from anyone having been or being a slave.

            Meanwhile you ignore FOREIGN ISLAMIC NATIONS that still allow ACTIVE SLAVERY TODAY even defending them and falsely calling people who POINT this fact out the names simply because you do not want to LEARN THE TRUTH or even bother looking to the links to or contained in the linked web pages that contradict your EMOTION BASED belief in the PROPAGANDA anti American groups spread.

          • 2Deep4_U

            FALSE, the truth is you’re a SOCIOPATH and a damn LIAR.
            BLACK people in this country are owed REPARATIONS because when something is Stolen it remains Stolen until it is RETURNED.
            You cannot justify your thievery by pointing your finger at some other THUGS.
            Writing a Page full of Bullshit will never change that.
            The Crooked ass CON–STITUTION was written to protect the minority interest, and to convince the Ignorant masses that people who didn’t own this land had a Right to make it’s LAWS.
            The minority interest that was being protected was the RICh MINORITY who are the REAL minority in this country.
            You Asshole are a very Misinformed MORON, as you should well know being Misinformed is a thousand times worse than being Ignorant.

          • Terry Butts

            You really need to get a DICTIONARY since you are just tossing around buzzwords that DO NOT MEAN WHAT YOU OBVIOUSLY THINK THEY DO.

            READ THE JONES ACT AND THE US CONSTITUTION.

            They can no more CONSTITUTIONALLY treat an unincorporated territory of this nation as if it was a state than they could treat Canada, England, France, etc. as if any of them was a state.

            “The Crooked ass CON–STITUTION was written to protect the minority
            interest, and to convince the Ignorant masses that people who didn’t own
            this land had a Right to make it’s LAWS.”

            FALSE or have the police put you in prison for anti American statements they way even ENGLAND would have by now?

            The CONSTITUTION is what restricts the power of government and puts THE PEOPLE in charge of this nation it is MINORITY groups like the ANTI FREEDOM, ANTI AMERICAN, ANTI CONSTITUTION groups that have spouted the LIES you apparently believe without ANY PROOF because had you LOOKED into actual history even read the DIARIES/journals of the people who lived at the time you would understand just how far off base you are.

            “You don’t know a Goddamn thing and you don’t want to learn.”

            I actually read the information I linked for you to read the fact YOU REFUSE TO LEARN THE TRUTH because it contradicts you VICTIM mentality that everyone you THINK is white even when they are not somehow owes you something because of something that ENDED in America long before anyone alive today was born AND THEREFORE THEY WERE NOT HARMED BY IT NOR DID THEY BENEFIT FROM IT.

            You on the other hand have provided NOTHING but anti American ANTI CONSTITUTION propaganda much of which MIRRORS what the ENEMIES of this nation taught (some still teach) in order to propagate HATRED of Americans among their people.

            If you do not believe that certain other nations still have slavery because their GOVERNMENT still allows it you have done ZERO research on the subject.

            “you admit that everything you have is the result of LYING Cheating and Stealing mostly from BLACK people”

            There was few if any “BLACK PEOPLE” on this continent when my NATIVE AMERICAN ANCESTORS lived here YOUR SHOW NOTHING BUT IGNORANCE when spout off that people are profiting by STEALING from blacks they are treated EQUALLY under the law there is no SPECIAL TAX that just they have to pay there is not FORCED LABOR that just they have to do there is NOTHING since the end of SLAVERY and the FULL CONFISCATION AS REPARATIONS that was done at the end of the CIVIL WAR that is stealing from JUST BLACK PEOPLE.

            The fact that you would even MAKE that statement show you are a CLOSED MINDED RACISTS who thinks only BLACKS were ever slaves and that somehow that slavery still exists in this nation despite the LAWS and the fact that numerous high paying jobs are almost exclusively held by minorities in this nation.

            What other nation in the world can ANYONE much less the number of BLACK PEOPLE that do in America make millions of dollars just playing what is essentially a children’s game as a professional.

            Try again the CURRENT educational system is not run by WHITES and has not been for years.

            ” I don’t READ links from Idiots.”

            Your confession is noted. Only a RACISTS PROPAGANDIST would ignore ACTUAL FACTS and call people names for POINTING THE TRUTH out to them.

          • 2Deep4_U

            White RACIST Misogynist lies are not FACTS.

          • Terry Butts

            “White RACIST Misogynist lies are not FACTS.”

            This is your PERSONAL opinion you have LINKED NO FACTS that support this PERSONAL BELIEF.

            First the facts you FALSELY call lies DO NOT ALL COME FROM WHITES as you claim many of them are FAMILY HISTORY passed down by all races including BLACK FAMILIES that were involved but you call them all WHITE because despite their actual race they do not BLINDLY FOLLOW THE SAME RACISTS YOU SPOUT PROPAGANDA FOR.

            You are no different than the reporter that REFUSED to accept that the BLACK WOMAN elected to one states congress was black because in his own words “HER POLITICS ARE NOT BLACK ENOUGH” proving that he like you do not care about truth or facts only your PERSONAL OPINION of people based on what YOU MISTAKENLY think defines someones race.

            I have linked PAGES of TRUTH, FACTS, and information the fact you REJECT IT because if CONTRADICTS your lies about white people shows how you BLINDLY believe the easily countered lies the ANTI AMERICAN HATE GROUPS have fed you does not make irrefutable FACTS LIES and your PERSONAL OPINIONS fact.

            Lets start with you INCORRECT definitions.

            “Definition of white
            1 a :free from color
            b :of the color of new snow or milk; specifically :of the color white
            c :light or pallid in color
            d :lustrous pale gray :silvery; also :made of silver

            2 a :being a member of a group or race characterized by light pigmentation of the skin
            b :of, relating to, characteristic of, or consisting of white people or their culture
            c [from the former stereotypical association of good character with northern European descent]
            :marked by upright fairness

            3 :free from spot or blemish: such as
            a (1) :free from moral impurity :innocent
            (2) :marked by the wearing of white by the woman as a symbol of purity
            b :unmarked by writing or printing
            c :not intended to cause harm
            d :favorable, fortunate”

            Does not apply the facts I linked to ARE FROM MULTIPLE PEOPLE not all of them white. Your statement fails.

            “misogynist
            [mi-soj-uh-nist, mahy‐]
            noun
            1. a person who hates, dislikes, mistrusts, or mistreats women.”

            Nothing linked has anything to do with hatred, dislike, mistrust, or mistreating women. Again your statement fails.

            “lie
            1.a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.”

            Nothing I linked has ever been proven false the facts are part of the IRREFUTABLE history of this nation. only by IGNORING them and making up actual LIES to take their place can you claim they are lies so again your STATEMENT fails.

            It is nothing but your UNEDUCATED HATE FILLED personal opinion not a statement of fact.

            Your posts also have nothing to do with the story you are simply using this forum to spout RACIAL HATRED of whites had you made the same statements about blacks or other “PROTECTED CLASSES” in stories not related to them you would have been banned long ago for violating the TOS. One need only to look at your posting history to see that all you do is blame whites for everything and call easy to confirm TRUTHS that contradict your propaganda lies.

            Just because I do not fit the STEREOTYPE of what a NATIVE AMERICAN should look like that you have in your head does not make me WHITE nor does your inability to REASON look at actual facts and decide for yourself what the truth is make all whites racists.

            You have yet to link even ONE SINGLE FACT to support your propaganda and have done nothing but resort to NAME CALLING because you apparently can not find anything but the IRREFUTABLY DISPROVED PROPAGANDA you continue to spout expecting people to just TAKE YOUR WORD FOR IT.

            Some FACTS you refuse to accept.

            1) You can not tell ones ancestry just by looking at them.
            2) RECORDS irrefutably show that not all slave owners where white.
            3) RECORDS irrefutably show that not all slaves where black.
            4) NOTHING done to benefit the slave owners of the time when it did exist has benefited anyone alive today.
            5) slavery EXISTED BEFORE AMERICA EVER DID and still does in some nations to this day.

            This list can go on for pages citing TRUTHS you refuse to acknowledge.

            You also seem to think that making MULTIPLE replies to the same post somehow changes the facts it does not at best it makes people think you have memory problems at worst some form of multiple personality with each replying to the same post.

          • Terry Butts

            Your REFUSAL to accept the FACTS and TRUTH that is irrefutable to anyone who THINKS FOR THEMSELVES instead of re-spouting HATE PROPAGANDA based on lies does not make those facts NOTHING.

            A ton of FACTS PROVEN BY HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS is worth far more than the PERSONAL OPINION of any brainwashed VICTIM MENTALITY spouting propagandist that thinks that ENTIRE RACES should be judged by LONG THE ACTIONS OF LONG DEAD PEOPLE and the FALSE BELIEF that only they took part in the LEGAL ACTIONS of then that we find reprehensible today.

            IF I use your FLAWED BELIEFS I would incorrectly blame

            1) All blacks for crime despite IRREFUTABLE proof that criminals come in all races.

            2) All people of various religions for being terrorists because A FEW terrorists use their MISINTERPRETATION of religious texts as motive for their actions.

            3) ACCUSE ALL BLACKS OF BEING RACIST despite PROOF that racism is not some BLANKET belief of any single race just because of the BLATANT RACISM you have shown.

            However as an INTELLIGENT NATIVE AMERICAN (and like many other normal Americans of all races) I do not blame anyone for any actions they have NEVER PERSONALLY DONE THEMSELVES just because someone from the same race, religion, nation, product ownership, or political group etc. have done that action does not MAKE THEM GUILTY simply for having ONE or more things not the CRIMINAL action the other did in common with them.

            If I did then I would spouting the same kind of PROGRESS KILLING HATRED you focus on over stuff no one alive today had anything to do with neither benefiting from it or having been harmed by it.

            So either accept it or just send MILLIONS in reparations to the native Americans for the past transgressions of LONG DEAD PEOPLE (even if such reparations already where given) like certain BLACKS keep demanding even when they were not Alive during the time slaves existed much less harmed by the OUTLAWED LONG BEFORE THEY WERE BORN slavery. In fact in one case finding out their ancestor was a BLACK SLAVE OWNER not a slave.

            Anything Stolen from my ancestors during Slavery is my Stolen Legacy.
            When something is Stolen it remains Stolen until it is RETURNED you DUMBASS MF.

          • Terry Butts

            The only thing stolen from black slaves was their freedom it was RETURNED to them well over 100 years ago WHEN THE ACTUAL VICTIMS still lived.

            unlike the LANDS and minerals stolen from my ancestors if I can accept that the people alive today were not the ones responsible for those acts which included Indian agents responsible for MURDERING native Americans as recently as the massacre at that school because the agent LIED claiming an act of self defense was murder when he tried to have one of them killed simply because they were being taught about the CIVIL RIGHTS laws that stated being charged 2 to 4 times the price for an item than others simply because of their race was a crime then you should be able to accept that TRUTH as well. Or do you still demand by proxy that ALL descended from those wronged by long dead people get reparations in the false belief that it somehow punishes the dead for their crimes to pay people who had EVERY EQUAL OPPORTUNITY as anyone else has had today.

            Besides how do we know that your ancestor was not the BLACK MAN that took his case to court SUING to keep his indentured servant on the grounds that he was HIS PROPERTY he brought with him from Africa when the state tried to release him according to the STANDARD contract for indentured servitude in exchange for passage to the new world.

            Thus ESTABLISHING slavery in colonial times that was later GRANDFATHERED into America law by politicians conned by what we now call southern democrats into thinking that abolishing slavery would DESTROY the nations economy ending the nation before it even got started. Or one of the MANY OTHER free black men who OWNED SLAVES or WORKED IN THE SLAVE TRADE it was not WHITE MEN in Africa that was selling people to the WHITE MEN from other nations.

            Once again the LINK you blatantly IGNORE because of your RACIST belief that WHITE MEN wrote everything that contradicts your indoctrination even in NATIONS where they did not exists at the time. Remember AMERICA did not exist until 1776 so ALL THINGS before that BENEFITED THE GOVERNMENT OF ENGLAND that ruled the colony not the US.

            http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/truth-about-slavery-schools-arent-teaching/

            By the way HARRIET TUBMAN was not as you put it a “RACIST Misogynist SLAVE owner” but you still called her one when you referred to the LINK containing information recorded from HER and FREED SLAVES she helped telling about their experiences as slaves just because the majority of those experiences CONTRADICT the lies you have chosen to believe.

            To my knowledge not one of the slaves that went through her underground railroad that told their stories that were recorded by slaves that IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW of the day were taught to read and write by WHITE PEOPLE that helped them.

            In fact several journals written by former slaves from some “owners” complained because now that they were free they had to work every single day instead of just two months a year one planting and one harvesting while getting food and shelter the entire year.

            You’re out of your GODDAMN mind.

          • Terry Butts

            I am not the one IGNORING ALL OF HISTORY to spout black racist comments acting as if there are only two races in the entire world and that EVERYONE who is not black is somehow a WHITE RACIST that OWES YOU SOMETHING over what long dead UNRELATED people supposedly did to YOUR ancestors over 100 years before your PARENTS were even born (despite not showing ANY PROOF your ancestors where not BLACK SLAVERS instead of slaves).

            Acting as if the fact some ancestor MIGHT have had $20 that you should have INHERITED that $20 long after your ancestor SPENT IT thus BLAMING an ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE for it not being there for you to spend today.

            99% of the people in this world NEVER HAD A LEGACY to inherit in the first place your FALSE belief that the 1% that do STOLE IT FROM YOU is more evidence of you being so indoctrinated by the politicians pushing the “VICTIM MENTALITY” to get POLITICAL SUPPORT for the DESTRUCTION of freedom in this nation from people who CAN NOT THINK FOR THEMSELVES that you will ignore all of history just to accept their lies that you would have been wealthy if only slavery did not exist and if WHAT THEY WANT is given to them somehow you suddenly will be while ignoring the truth and the IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE of the large number of POOR WHITE PEOPLE among the MANY OTHER RACES who have both WEALTHY and poor clearly DISPROVING the lie that SLAVERY is to blame for all your problems when you NEVER WAS A SLAVE (unless from the FOREIGN NATION THAT STILL ALLOWS IT) and it has been ILLEGAL IN THIS NATION for so long NOTHING that happened during that time has any relevance on the income of ANYONE in this nation today.

            Just because in your REVISED HISTORY of this continent the majority of my ancestors are NOT EVEN MENTIONED (because it does not support the LIE that this nation was founded by WHITE RACISTS) does not change the historical facts that exist in family journals and HISTORY that was written at the time it was NEWS of the day.

            Frankly you are coming off as either a WHITE SUPREMACIST that is trying to give all black people a bad name or someone so ignorant of actual history you blindly accept the indoctrination of POLITICIANS that only use you for your vote and will gladly “throw you under the buss” when you are no longer of any use to them just like in EVERY instance when NAZI, SOCIALIST, COMMUNIST, or OTHER RACISTS spouting the same false doctrine you have been doing succeed in taking over of a nation.

            Once their goals are achieved the traitors that GAVE UP THEIR FREEDOM to assist in the destruction of the nations that gave them that freedom are always the first people the new regime gets rid of after all if they can be so easily swayed with propaganda they IGNORE FACTS and even their own real family history they are a risk to the new regime when they AS ALWAYS do not keep what they promised to get their support.

            Since you refuse to follow links out of FEAR you might learn something that contradicts your indoctrination here is just some of the VALID HISTORY from the link that can be verified from the actual colonial records records.

            http://conservative-headlines.com/2012/03/americas-first-slave-owner-was-a-black-man/

            “According to colonial records, the first slave owner in the United States was a black man.

            Prior to 1655 there were no legal slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any Negro purchased from slave traders. Negros were also granted 50 acres upon their release. Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm.

            When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker.

            Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner.

            Whites still could not legally hold a black servant as an indefinite slave until 1670. In that year, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting free whites, blacks, and Indians the right to own blacks as slaves.”

            $20.00 ? How about $20,000,000.00 plus interest you low life SOB.
            STFU and get LOST MF.

          • Terry Butts

            So you have some proof your ancestor had $20 million dollars?

            You have some PROOF of who in the long line of AFRICAN TRIBES that captured and sold members of other tribes took that money from them?

            The wealth STOLEN from Native Americans is a matter of historical record the gold, oil, uranium, etc. not to mention farm acreage taken from them by constantly amending or blatantly violating treaties.

            Yes, I have Proof that the profits from Slavery plus the property the SLAVES owned before being KIDNAPPED and ENSLAVED far exceeded 20 million.
            You DUMB SOB.

          • Terry Butts

            Then link the proof. Since it contradicts what I already linked for you to read.

            Theft by AFRICAN tribes at war with your ancestors who SOLD them to slavers from other nations IF in fact your ancestors where not among the FREE BLACKS that came to this nation and actually became SLAVE OWNERS does not constitute ANYTHING done by this nation or ANYONE LIVING TODAY.

            Have you forgotten in Africa they KILLED the whites producing the nations food and RETURNED the land to the people they felt it belonged to now instead of GROWING or even harvesting the remaining crops from that land they BEG the international community for aid they used to never need.

            You really need to stop FOLLOWING NAZI DOCTRINE ones race is not determined by their looks (as the Nazis indoctrination taught) it is determined by their ANCESTRY so unless you are a WHITE MAN falsely claiming to be a black man even you should understand DNA is passed down by ones ancestors and if the MAJORITY of that ancestry is native American REGARDLESS of the traits one inherits they are classified as native American. Beliefs, IDEOLOGY, RELIGION, politics etc. ARE NOT a factor in determining ones race.

            if you believe otherwise you are as ignorant as that reporter that refused to recognize the first black women that was elected to a certain states congress as such because as he put it “her politics are not black enough” indicating his ignorance about what determines ones race as well.

            Freedom was RETURNED when the constitution YOU HATE SO MUCH was amended to PROHIBIT SLAVERY and EXTEND the freedom and rights to ALL RACES. Or do yo foolishly think the SLAVERS from Africa that captured people of their own race and SOLD THEM let their belongings go with them?

          • 2Deep4_U

            How does one return 250 years of FREEDOM?
            You DUMB SOB.

          • Terry Butts

            Did not realize you were 250 years old.

            Your math needs some work 1776 to 1865 is not 250 years it is only 90 years NOTHING THAT HAPPENED WHILE COLONIES UNDER ENGLISH RULE applies to the UNITED STATES or any of the CURRENT CITIZENS of this nation just as nothing other governments OUTSIDE OF THE US do can be ATTRIBUTED or blamed upon the US or its CITIZENS. HISTORY makes it clear the majority of the slave traders were ARABIC not US or ENGLISH.

            ONLY SOMEONE who was actually a slave has any right to complain about
            what happened to them during that time or demand those accused of those things be punished it has been a CRIME since 1865
            for slavery to exist in this nation that is 152 years ago the oldest
            person of record was not even 125 so no one is alive today that benefited or was
            harmed by slavery all actions related to it took place over 150 years ago and those that were
            still living 152 years ago when slavery was abolished HAD THEIR FREEDOM
            RETURNED those depending on SLAVE LABOR subsequently lost everything that was not already taken or destroyed during the war.

            The dead are long gone THEY CAN NOT BE PUNISHED FOR ANYTHING THEY DID can be punished
            today and none of their victims or anyone affected by what they did is alive today. If you disagree then go back to the nation you think they were wrongfully taken from and demand the decedents of the TRIBE that captured and sold them give you back their ancestral lands instead of BLAMING AN ENTIRE RACE as if they are guilty for what long dead people did that DID NOT BENEFIT THEM IN ANY WAY.

            It is nothing but PURE RACISM to blame all whites
            especially those that NEVER LIVED during that time (who in fact may be mixed race decedents of slaves) for the actions of long
            dead people it is no different than blaming all blacks for the actions
            of a few even it was 150+ years ago that the LONG DEAD did whatever it was you
            want to blame them for.

            BILLIONS of dollars in resources were taken from Native Americans by VIOLATING treaties that granted them the lands those resources were on supposedly in perpetuity that in reality was only honored until someone found gold, oil, etc.on those lands or just decided they wanted the land for their own personal profit.

Being what you think is WHITE does not make someone a SLAVE OWNER or the DESCENDANT of one. Just as BEING BLACK does not automatically make you a descendant of any slave.

            THE CIVIL WAR TOOK PLACE IN THE 1860s AS STATED THE CONSTITUTION WAS AMENDED AFTER THE CIVIL WAR BY WHITE MEN TO ABOLISH SLAVERY.

            https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CDOC-110hdoc50/pdf/CDOC-110hdoc50.pdf

            “ARTICLE XIII.
            SECTION 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

            SECTION 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

            PROPOSAL AND RATIFICATION
            The thirteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States was proposed
            to the legislatures of the several States by the Thirty-eighth Congress, on the 31st
            day of January, 1865, and was declared, in a proclamation of the Secretary of State,
            dated the 18th of December, 1865

            ARTICLE XIV.
            SECTION 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States,
            and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United
            States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make
            or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities
            of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any
            person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor
            deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of
            the laws.

            PROPOSAL AND RATIFICATION
            The fourteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States was proposed
            to the legislatures of the several States by the Thirty-ninth Congress, on the 13th
            of June, 1866. It was declared, in a certificate of the Secretary of State dated July
            28, 1868 to have been ratified”

            Irrefutable proof that EQUAL enforcement of rights and the abolishing of slavery was put into constitutional law over 100 years ago.

            So why should I look up a case that occurred almost a DECADE BEFORE THE AMENDMENT that abolished slavery became part of the constitution a case where the judge REFERRED to the precedence set in previous trials including the 1655 ruling by an ENGLISH COLONIAL COURT nearly 100 years before America existed? You might as well point me to the 1800s era case that upheld a states right to PROHIBIT women from voting as an argument that they are still denied that right to this day when the VOTING ROLLS show that millions of them have voted.

            Like I said READ FOR YOURSELF instead of just listening to the ANTI FREEDOM, ANTI AMERICAN, racists hate propaganda blindly rejecting all proof and documents INCLUDING ONES WRITTEN BY FORMER SLAVES because the racists you listened to LIED TO YOU and stated that white men wrote everything.

            NO PLACE IN THIS NATION ARE SLAVES OWNED OR SOLD that is what the amendment DID and what its PURPOSE WAS.

            I guess you need the definition of dumb spelled out to you as well.

            I am not the one that tried to use an 1855 court ruling as proof an 1865 amendment to the US constitution does not exist.

            I am not the one spouting the propaganda that a nation that has only existed for 241 years and ABOLISHED slavery a mere 90 years into that is somehow responsible for 250 years of slavery when slavery has existed for THOUSANDS of years that it is a matter of record that it existed in ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, and yes even in ancient Africa where every war ended with the victors either enslaving or killing off the remaining members of the tribe that opposed them. Repeated in the 80s when a faction in Africa attempted to once again exterminate an entire tribe based on the same kind of BIAS blaming them all for the actions of a few.

            You are the one that called all the freed slaves “WHITE MEN” simply because your propaganda disagrees with the truth they TOLD about their time being a slave apparently combined with the false belief that no slave was taught how to read and write when you rejected the PROOF your beliefs are false because it was “written by white men”.

            I am not the one that rejected the fact that in the 1600s a BLACK MAN sued to get “his property” returned after he was forced to release his INDENTURED SERVANT at the end of his 7 year term pointing to the fact it was the CUSTOM in Africa for captured enemies to become permanent servants to the victor in battle and actually got some ENGLISH COLONIAL JUDGE to rule in his favor BRINGING slavery to the early colonies.

            I am not the one that holds such BLATANT HATRED of people based on their RACE that I cannot see them as INDIVIDUALS that are only accountable for actions they have actually done not what their LONG DEAD ANCESTORS are accused of having done to the point YOU do not even recognize that very few people actually had anything to do with slavery when it was legal much less 152 years after it was ABOLISHED by a constitutional amendment ratified in 1865.

            So keep spouting your racist hatred and propaganda but do not be surprised to find that if you should SUCCEED in helping those you BLINDLY follow overthrow this free nation TURN AGAINST YOU.

            Because as history has shown in every OVERTHROW of a legal government those that helped cause the disruption leading to it are disposed of by the new regime as they no longer serve a purpose and become a liability to those trying to rewrite history to support their lies over the truth of what happened.

    Mr McCain is without a doubt a RINO. I do not understand why much credibility would be given to him even to the extent he is carried BytheRight.com.

That being said, I feel for the people of P.R. but having watched some of the news reports I am disgusted with the reporters who are trying to blame Pres. Trump. The Government of P.R. is to blame for the total devastation of that island. The 2 hurricanes would have caused damage no matter what but the severity of it was the people running that place into the ground. I was stunned at the what I call shacks for homes, packed on top of each other, electric shaky at best. An island at least 1000 miles away from U.S. one hurricane after another and the idiot reporters think anyone could have done better. Give me a break, you live in the middle of an ocean where access is cut off. God bless the people of P.R. and hope and pray that they can hold someone in their own Government accountable and regain a better life for themselves and their families. So called news people need to sthu and quit trying to pit people against each other. They are a disgrace to act this way in time of tragedy.

    Mc double standard is beyond words. He care more for the people of PR. I am sorry they are going through such a rough time. BUT I wish Mc would give as much concern for the all of the living POWs who the US government left behind. For decades he has prevented the families from having access to the files of people who sighted living POWs left behind.

          GETTING TO KNOW THE REAL JOHN MCCAIN
          By
          Burma Davis Posey

          This is John McCain’s home 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.

          McCain has recently discovered he has a brain tumor. I am genuinely sorry for anyone who has to face a health issue especially when it involves cancer. Thankfully for him the doctors have said it is curable. The fact that he now has a brain tumor does not change the horrendous things he has done in his life because of his extremely low flawed character.

          If Senator McCain’s own health care was dependent on the Obamacare he has continued to saddle the American people with, I guarantee he would not have voted thumbs-down. But because he married a wealthy heiress and has plenty of money to take care of his own health needs, he does not care.

          What a guy… what a guy! Maybe I’ll drain my ostomy bag on his grave also!!!!!

    Those members of the “Establishment”, from BOTH parties who don’t want OUR President Trump to succeed in any way, will do anything and everything to see that he doesn’t. That is why they are trying to undermine his every step so they can find a way to have reason for impeachment. Myself and millions of others believe this a terrible injustice for anyone to endure, especially the President of the USA, who was duly elected by the citizens themselves. He is OUR President, and you members of OUR Congress are in for one HE!! of a revolution if you keep this “sham” up. Get Mueller off his high horse that you put him on, start doing your damn job of running the country and work with OUR President Trump to make America Great Again. We are just about fed up as we can get NOW, and if ANYTHING happens to TRUMP, you WILL pay for it. Believe US.

No dignity from any of you when attacking someone and mocking his/her ailing health. Leave your undignified comments about someones health off these posts and learn some respect. Attack his political decisions if you must but leave family and health alone. Hopefully karma payback will be a bitch for those of you that cross that line.

    Let’s put more American seamen out of work, so they can be replaced by McCain’s Chinese friends, who will undercut our Merchant Marine as they have done every other American institution. Lifting the restrictions makes sense in this isolated case, but our merchant fleet is in bad enough shape without opening the door to cheapo, low-quality foreign competition across the board.
