What will follow is a collection of truths about the life and times of one Senator John McCain.
You wont see this on the complicit media because to them loyalty to the project demands reverence post mortem regardless of the truth and in most cases, in spite of it.
The fictions, exaggerations and white-washing we are about to be subjected to by the complicit media over the next week regarding this man's record, though embarrassing as it will be to our nation, should serve to provide us insight into just how far they will go to gin up a heroic narrative for all those who serve the interests of the MIC, the 0,1%, the Banking Industrial Complex and the US Chamber of Commerce.
If you serve their interests and do so at all costs you will be rewarded in life and canonized in death. It is an important part of the deal they strike at the cross roads and current contract holders fully expect this deal to be honored.
They want to be remembered in death as the men they hated the most in life. Men with honor, integrity, courage and compassion for their fellow man. They hated these men because they served as a mirror held up to expose themselves for what they had become.
So for the next week we will be treated to a barrage of most unpleasant fictions regarding Sen. John McCain.
Below the fold you will find a collection of Tweets, videos and links explaining who he really was. You can use this thread as a respite from the madness when the bullshit gets too much to take.
Consider it a service to the intellectually honest and the morally intact.
Dr. Kelli Ward explains what John McCain really was back in 2016.

Former Arizona Senator and 2018 Arizona Senatorial candidate Kelli Ward:
"John McCain, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been partners in creating and arming ISIS”
Here Caitlin Johnstone makes the argument that we need to expose war-mongers like McCain if we ever hope to stop the future bloody efforts of future manufactured saints.

"By publicly disrupting the narrative of McCain’s sanctification, we make it harder for the war propagandists to manufacture consent for more war. It really is that simple."#JohnMcCain #McCainhttps://t.co/KriLQnarMS

John's real war record is somewhat different from what you are going to hear on TV this week.

And then there is this:
John McCain was born to a life of privilege. Both his father and his grandfather were 4 star admirals in the Navy. John graduated 5th from last in his 899-member class at the United States Naval Academy in 1958. He had committed so many violations while in school, they would have kicked him out... had he not been a legacy student born to privilege.
Read here how the Washington Post tries to white-wash Saint John's short and screwed up military career.
" Sen. McCain requested and got orders to do a Vietnam combat tour, joining a squadron on the supercarrier Forrestal in the Tonkin Gulf. On July 29, 1967, having flown five uneventful bombing runs over North Vietnam, he was preparing for takeoff when a missile accidentally fired from a nearby fighter struck the fuel tank of his A-4 Skyhawk, Sen. McCain wrote in his memoir. It set off explosions and a fire that killed 134 crewmen, destroyed more than 20 planes and disabled the ship so severely that it took two years to repair.His own injuries being relatively — and miraculously — minor, Sen. McCain, then a lieutenant commander, volunteered for dangerous duty on the undermanned carrier Oriskany." Washington Post
John didn't request to go to Nam. His father was getting sick of him playing around with hookers and strippers in Florida while he enjoyed some cushy little posting well away from combat during a war.
The WP fails to mention what set off the rocket in that plane sitting behind McCain's on the Forrestal. John "wet started" his plane to send a flash of fire back in the face of the guy in that aircraft. John thought it was cute. It caused the ignition of a rocket mounted underneath wing of that plane which then hit John's causing his 1,000lb bomb to break free of it's 500lb-rated mount and from there it was nothing but fire and brimstone and a whole lot of dead sailors.
St. John McCain actually killed more U.S. sailors that the Israelis did on the USS Liberty and that is saying a lot.
They mention he jumped onto the Oriskany but they don't tell you they sent it over to help but also to evacuate McCain cus his father knew the other sailors knew and John time was running out quickly on the Forrestal.
Over the course of his short career, hero McCain lost 4 planes over and above the ones he destroyed on the Forrestal which were lost along with the lives of 134 men. A fifth was "damaged" due to him messing around while flying.
"McCain did lose two Navy aircraft while piloting them. One crash was found to be be McCain's fault, the other due to an engine failure of undetermined cause.. A third was destroyed on the deck of the carrier USS Forrestal when a missile fired accidentally from another plane hit either the plane next to McCain's or, less likely, his own aircraft, triggering a disastrous fire that killed 134 sailors and nearly killed McCain. A fourth plane was lost when he was shot down over North Vietnam on a bombing mission over Hanoi.
A fifth alleged "crash" turns out to be a misinterpretation of a flight accident that did not result in the loss of the aircraft. McCain admitted to causing that incident through "daredevil clowning" but returned safely." Fact Check
When he was shot down John was flying a bombing run over a civilian location trying to take out a power station so the civilians in the area would suffer. He was actually rescued by the villagers and rather than kill him, they handed him over to the police. Once his captors realized who he was, the son and grandson of US Admirals, his treatment was vastly different than that of other captives.
All you have to do to understand that is look at images of him upon his release and those of the others and you will see there is absolutely no comparison. Ian56 above put together a couple images showing the differences.
They (his fellow POWs) called him "Songbird" McCain and St. John himself admits he made propaganda tapes for the enemy, condemning his and the rest of the US military's actions in the country. It was probably the last honest thing he ever said.
Without getting into his whole history from there suffice too say he has always served the interests of the powerful.
He learned very quickly that his birth right would give him advantages but if he didn't get his mind right and serve the interests of the powerful before him, life would significantly less pleasant for him. So, he did whatever he needed, said whatever he needed to appease those in power over him.
That was true when he was a boy. That was true when he was a captive. And that was true when he came back home and took his "rightful" place in politics.
He should have been an admiral but he was weak in spirit. After the Forrestal and his Songbird days, even his silver-spoon heritage wouldn't be enough to make that happen.
So instead, he dumped his broken trophy wife, got a newer, richer one, and embarked on the only career befitting a man with his background... politics.
As the canonization of St. John of the McCain begins, let's keep all this truth in mind, shall we? Like a sliver of dry rock on the shore of a raging river of bullshit we are being swept away in, we will cling to it like our vary sanity depends on it. Because it does.
Our Gods are mice... our kings, peasants... and our heroes are forgeries.
Thus is the bizarre world of St. John the Twisted.
Love it. Hate it. It is what it is and all the pretending in the world wont make it go away. I wonder if McCain thought about that simple truth in his last moments.
I wonder if his Forrestal shipmates were waiting for him.
