John McCain Has Died at 81 Years of Age, RIP


Senator John McCain (1936 -2018) has died of brain cancer at 81 years of age. Although a Republican, he supported many of the Democratic platforms and was considered a maverick.

John McCain was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee.

He was known as a hero when he refused to leave fellow prisoners of war behind to escape years of torture in Vietnam. His maverick streak as Arizona’s senior statesman at times frustrated fellow Republicans and confounded President Donald Trump.

McCain had decided to discontinue medical treatment for the glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, his family announced on Aug. 24. He had surpassed expectations for his survival, but “the progress of the disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict,” the family’s statement said.

He planned his own funeral after he was given the diagnosis.

The President has released a statement.

His daughter penned a beautiful statement.

It looks like Everybody is treating McCain like some type of paragon of everything. How about asking One question, who is the greater hero, McCain who DID make a propaganda tape for the enemy or the others wit him who did Not. That tape was still on YouTube not that long ago.

Can’t say that I liked his politics, but I do pray the Good Lord be with his family during their time of mourning.

He was a “maverick” by the media, Until he ran for the highest office. THEN, he became a white supremacists. He redeemed himself by going after the “next” white supremacist. A great many old twitter posts by the media and others are being resurrected from 2008
