CNN Celebrates ‘Joy’ of McCain a Day After His Genocidal Threat

12 September 2017 — FAIR

Professional truth-teller and self-appointed Russian counter-propagandist Jake Tapper had Arizona Sen. John McCain on his State of Union show (CNN, 9/10/17) for a chummy interview Sunday night. The interview began with Tapper lobbing softballs at McCain about his mortality and reminiscing about buddying up on the 2000 campaign trail (Tapper was, according to his then-editor David Talbot, a McCain “groupie”) before moving on to “issues.”

Target: Ukraine – How foreign intervention is tearing the country apart By grtv

3 March 2014 — grtv

William Engdahl and Michel Chossudovsky

As geopolitical analysts from across the board explain, the Ukrainian coup has been deliberately provoked by outside agents to promote a combination of US, EU, NATO and IMF interests. Perhaps more worrying than the interference itself are its potential implications. As Russia’s every move is now being scrutinized for a possible military response to the ongoing crisis, the specter of a larger military operation now hangs over Eastern Europe.

Video: McCain, Ukraine, and the Political Game

21 March 2014 — Stop Imperialism

Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org provides his analysis of the latest statements by US Senator John McCain regarding Russia and the US response to the referendum in Crimea.  Draitser explains that McCain speaks for the neocon establishment and their Cold War mentality, and that his role is to inflame US opinion as much as possible.  Draitser notes that much of this is in relation to domestic US politics and the fact that the US has, not for the first time, been out-maneuvered by Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Also, Draitser provides his analysis of what McCain left out of his statements and why it’s important.

Ukraine: NATO’s Eastern Prize

Ever since the democracy manipulation efforts of international hedge fund brigand George Soros were joined with the artificial street revolution tactics of CIA tactician Gene Sharp to form the core strategy of the U.S. neo-conservative goal of imposing a «New American Century» on the entire world, Ukraine has served as the prize of America’s interventionist foreign policy. And the neocons are still alive and active as ever inside Secretary of State John Kerry’s State Department.

Pentagon Increases Authority Over Use of Force in CONUS

01.06.2013 | 00:00 | Andrei AKULOV

Worried about the legality of the armed drone program and some covert missions in places not covered by the text of the 2001 measure, US Senators are mulling over the prospects for either a new resolution or an update to the existing one. On May 13 the US Senate debated an expansion of the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) so the U.S. can essentially engage any area in the world in the war on terror, including the territory of US itself. Assistant Secretary of Defense Michael Sheehan told Congress that the AUMF authorized the US military to operate on a worldwide battlefield from Boston to Pakistan…

Israel Threatens Russia By Stephen Lendman

John McCain: an egomaniac ignorant interloper who has been fouling American politics for decades. The kind of pol that makes the world worse for everyone.

Arizona’s John McCain: an egomaniac interloper and warmongering chauvinist that has been petulantly fouling American politics for decades. The kind of politician that makes the world hell for everyone, and the inevitable offshoot of a reactionary state, media support, and brute plutocratic power.

30 May 2013 — Greanville Post

Israel gives chutzpah new meaning. War on humanity defines its agenda. It’s partnered with Washington’s war on Syria.  It’s heading perhaps toward greater intervention. It warned Russia about supplying Syria with sophisticated defensive anti-aircraft missiles. It said Israel will react in response. More on that below.

McCain enters Syria illegally

30 May 2013 — Voltaire Network

U.S. Senator John McCain, a rabid opponent of President Bashar al-Assad, illegally slipped into Syria for a few hours on May 27, 2013, near the northwestern city of Idlib.

The trip was organized by the Syrian Emergency Task Force, which had notified the competent service of the State Department.

Senator McCain met with officials of the Free Syrian Army.

In announcing this visit, White House spokesman Jim Roberts appeared to be extremely surprised.
