McCain was behind 2012 IRS Harassment of Tea Party

#1 Post by FWiedner » Sat Jun 23, 2018 1:19 am

... a staff-level employee for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., urged the IRS to audit the targeted groups until it became “ruinous” for them.

:idea:

The Republican nominee working hard to ensure his party's success.

I continue to believe that he never had any intention of winning.

:roll:
Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

It really appears that he was working against the U.S. from before his famous "wet start" which killed some crewmen. He should have received a charge of negligent homicide for that one.

When Sarah Palin had enough support to put them in the White House, he had to start sabotauging his campaign. He did.

I've never been a fan of mccain's political career and if this is true it just reenforces my opinions but, though I am no expert on maritime disasters in general or CV-59's tragedy in particular, hard to blame mccain for causing that one....

Search for "forrestal fire"....

It has become vogue to blame mccain for the 29 July 1967 disaster on the USS Forrestal cv59....

A wet start is supposedly the jet aviation equivalent of cranking a car engine
at 3/4 throttle or even actually deploying afterburners at light-up....

The story goes that mccain was monkeying around and cooked-off a zuni rocket on the aircraft behind his thus triggering the fires and explosions that took the lives of 134 men.

In reality there was nothing but blue sky behind his plane and the rocket(s) came from an opposite F4 and struck an A4 beside McCain's A4....

The pilot of the F4 had left the instrument panel power switch closed on the last flight and it should have been open (off)....

just prior to the AEs or ADs jumping the plane with the hot starter, the AOs had already plugged -in the red wire to the zunis and had removed the safety pins out of order in the s.o.p.

The result "whoosh!" and then ultimately a total of 9 of both 500 and 1000 pound bombs cook-off and pour burning jet fuel into the spaces below.

I don't hold McCain's breaking down after unbearable torture, or what was a tragic accident aboard his ship against him. (BTW, if you didn't know, any sensitive Intell a person might possess is changed after he is taken captive because it's a given that he will break under torture) It's his political stances after he lost the election. He childishly blamed Palin (who I, personally, thought would have made a better POTUS) and then went full-blown retarded RINO against his own party. To heck with him.

Yep. I agree. I won't second-guess a soldier's actions, since I've never been in combat, but I definitely WILL criticize a socialist, hypocrite 'politician' who wants to destroy everything our nation stands for, and I will NOT give him a 'pass' just because he was a POW. So were lots of other guys who didn't come back and try to destroy our nation.... :evil:

He's always been a RINO - at best. Heck, barely even that.

Forrestal fire gets you to the official report. Search for McCain wet start. You can find that McCain was noted for pulling stunts. He came back to his carrier once with a bunch of power line cable stuck to his jet from where he had been showing off and hit some power lines. He shut off power to several hundred homes. He lost a jet from failing to pay attention to the fact that he was too low and slow to avoid ditching his jet.
His A4 Skyraider did not have afterburner capability, and most thought it could not do a wet start. McCain somehow was told that the Pratt & Whitney turbines could be spun without the igniter on, and when the igniter was lit it would cause a fireball at the rear of the jet. That engine could do it.

It caused the Captain to be reassigned to a desk until his term of service ran out. It took three tries to make an official report, and that one was not from anyone who actually investigated the incident. McCain gave 3 different versions of the incident. The first two versions were where he stated under oath that his tail was pointing at the nose of the plane behind him. That pilot was behind where the missiles impacted, but he burned to death. The third version was where his plane pushed itself backward and hung the tail over the edge of the flight deck perpendicular to the direction of the catapult. I may not be a pilot, but I do know Military B.S., and the third version sounds like it to me.
