Kerry and McCain are Traitors to the US and the American People

by Suzanne Eovaldi

Would the fact that John–anti-war activist with pal Hanoi Jane Fonda–Kerry has a daughter married to an Iranian make any difference in this heated debate over getting Barack Obama’s nuke deal shoved through Congress? Kerry greeted the Iranian people on the occasion of Nowruz, the traditional New Year, by revealing “his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has   KERRY SALUTE EXTENSIVE FAMILY TIES to Iran!” Kerry told those listening: “I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family and grateful for how they have enriched my life.”  Kerry went on to say he was strongly committed to resolving differences between the USA and Iran “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Where is our vaunted FBI in all of these negotiations? Here is further statement of the danger Kerry is putting the US and Israel in: “Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues. The Bureau generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties, or more simply, BLACKMAIL!”  So with in-laws currently living in Iran, will Kerry give full loyalty to the best interests of America? Really?

And what of Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian-American widely touted as being Obama’s closest adviser? She was born in Shiraz, Iran, to Dr. James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. Her grandfather

was involved with a communist front group-the American Peace Mobilization-with Frank Marshall Davis, a close friend of Obama’s maternal grandfather and Chicago Obama associate. Jarrett’s former father-in-law was Vernon Jarrett, also known in Chicago’s Communist circles during the 1940’s.

An anonymous E-mail making cyber rounds shows Kerry at a 1970’s anti-Vietnam War rally. He is standing next to his pal Hanoi Jane who says “Nothing would give me more pleasure than to shoot down an American fighter plane.” If that doesn’t make you want to go out to fight to save D.C., read about McKERRY AND MCCAIN 3Cain’s efforts to hide information about POWs in Vietnam from the American people.  “McCain went on to get a bill passed to seal all POW/MIA records from Vietnam.” He effectively blocked anyone obtaining access to anything he said or did.

And with an extraordinary lack of concern for anyone but himself, John Songbird McCain also blocked the families of POWs and MIAs from finding out what happened to their loved ones left behind in Vietnam. A number of Vietnam Vets have claimed that McCain made 32 propaganda tapes for the Vietnamese.”    JOHN MCCAIN 1

Our fact finding mainstream media types say McCain was tortured unmercifully, but so were his fellow POWs. Why prevent their families finding out what happened to them? It is widely believed that McCain was hoping to cover up his own actions. Like one commenter to this article said: “And what, exactly can we do about this or anything else that stinks of treason or blackmail…what can we do about it when few if anyone in government is listening to us?” You can call toll free your senators and representatives at 1-877-762-8762.

 

Trump wins support of Americans who know border isn’t secure from criminal illegals

by Suzanne Eovaldi

The Border is safe, secure, one of the safest cities in Texas with a low crime rate says Xochitl Mora, the erudite spokeswoman for Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz. She cites the extremely valuable symbiotic relationship which the city of 250,000 has with its neighbors in Mexico and all across Texas and the southwest. “The U.S. relies on the $280 Billion trade, 60% of which goes through Laredo,” she said as she stressed this huge amount would not be possible if Laredo were not secure.    ILLEGALS CROSS BORDER

She explained that Mayor Saenz will greet Donald Trump when he lands in Laredo, “just as [he would] any visiting dignitary.” But the Laredo Mayor will not accompany Border Patrol Union Leader Hector Garza who invited Candidate Trump (an invitation since cancelled by command of AFL-CIO) to tour the border areas with him. Mora indicated the Mayor, also, will attend their press conference. But clearly, her explanations were not in total agreement with Trump’s decision to visit this large city that sits immediately on our Southern Border.

She said that the immigrants crossing over into the U.S. mainly are Hispanic, hard- working family members. “They are not criminals.”   (1)

But my dear friend who knows the area well, has crossed back and forth there often and was born and raised in Texas, disagrees. She moved to South Florida to be near her daughter and family after undergoing severe breast cancer surgery and very difficult chemo and radiation treatment.

She told me of the terror her brother and sister-in-law experienced at the hand of illegals. One day her brother was sitting on the patio of his lovely home in South Texas and felt a presence nearby. He looked up, and a gun was being pointed at his head by an Hispanic man who demanded all of his wealth and possessions. Afraid for his wife and granddaughter in the back of their home, he began to    illegals criminals 2comply, when the phone rang. His wife screamed into the phone, and her friend immediately called 911. This gun wielding invader fled, but my friend said had not that phone rung right at that    moment, she knows her brother and family would have been shot dead.

“They get on their Ski Doos (snowmobiles) and bring people over for a price, $500 each,” she told me as she complained about the Coyotes (human traffickers) who run their own people into the U.S. for a price. She said long rows of USPS mail box stacks are lined up right over the border, and each month on a timely basis, the illegals cross over into our country to pick up their U.S. entitlement

checks, then go right back into Mexico. “Those women crawl into our country at nine months pregnant,” she said in order deliver their babies here on our soil to qualify as American citizens. These newborns become the anchor babies that provide entry for their large extended families.

Another source in Phoenix, AZ, decried the crime, danger, constant threats, and loss of their joy of living because of our government’s failure to secure our Southern Border. She sent me a link to the news story about her family friend, Chad Weaver, who suffered a horrific traffic accident at the hands of a driver suspected of fleeing back into his native Mexico.  “Chad is going to lose the next year, year and a half of his life, and he’s not going to be able to walk, for minimum three months. He’s got to go to a long-term care facility,” said his Mother, Debbie Brock. This hit and run driver and his passenger just left the car and fled from the police.ILLEGALS CAUGHT

The kicker here to this story is that Wal-Mart’s number one selling product is bananas. When police came on the scene, they found bags full of bananas inside the hit and run vehicle. “Detectives believe the two men may have been using the fruit they found to make ALCOHOL!” (emp. added)

Clearly, Donald Trump has struck a raw nerve in America’s body politic that no other politician or candidate dared to bring up. And, IMHO, his poll numbers will continue to accelerate, no matter how many slings and arrows the media and our D.C. swamp dwellers    shoot at him. He is listening to the people, our needs, our fears, our pocket book issues. Here is what one commenter said, “And they are bringing all these things here. Instead of assimilating to America, we are assimilating to third world crap holes.” (3)

America Learns of a Pampered and Protected John McCain

By Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

Did Richard Nixon pardon John “Songbird” McCain of charges as serious as treason and did our defunct mainstream media hide this horrific side of a man who would have been our president in 2008, save only for a Black being on the ticket? What is the truth here? “Colonel Ted Guy was preparing criminal charges against John    MCCAIN SPEECHMcCain when Nixon took Admiral McCain’s little boy under his wing. Where are McCain’s 32 propaganda tapes that were made during Vietnam and broadcast over the radio to US troops?” asks Gordon Duff, a disabled, Marine combat veteran of Vietnam writing about the McCain story. Duff is a longtime activist for veterans and POW issues.

Here is an anonymous writer, an active Marine in ’08, who claims to know of and tells the “True Military Record of John McCain.” For 23 combat missions (an estimated 20 hours over enemy territory), the U.S. Navy awarded McCain a Silver Star, a Legion of Merit for Valor, a Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Stars, two Commendation medals plus two Purple Hearts and a dozen service medals.

‘McCain had roughly 20 hours in combat,’ explains Bill Bell, a veteran of Vietnam and former chief of the U.S. Office for POW/MIA Affairs-the first official U.S. representative in Vietnam since the 1973 fall of Saigon. “As McCain got 28 medals, Bell continues, that equals out to nearly a medal-and-a-half for each hour he spent in combat. There were infantry guys-grunts on the ground-who had more than 7,000 hours in combat and I can tell you that there were times and situations where I’m sure a prison cell would have looked pretty good to them by comparison.”

Now the fire on the Aircraft Carrier, USS Forrestal bodes even more controversy. One blogger felt that McCain acted admirably when the fire on deck broke out, and the reason for the horrific explosion was the decision made to load WWII bombs on board which were unequipped with a fire preventive outer coating.

However, “He (McCain) did a smart ass punk attention getting trick by doing a ‘wet start’ up of his jet. . .when a pilot wants to be a wise ass or show off, this type of engine start creates a large startling flame and lots of surprise noise from the rear of a jet engine on start-up…this was no accident.”

The fierce electrical surge caused the launching of a powerful Zuni rocket across the carrier’s deck hitting other parked planes that were packing 1,000 pound, high-explosive bombs that caused the huge explosion and nearly sank this 82,000 ton U.S. aircraft carrier. “This stunt and aftermath caused the death of 134 sailors.” 

What is the real truth about the Forrestal fire? One blogger   

Forrestal fire
Forrestal fire

compares the Navy’s harsh atmosphere of discipline and strict adherence to rules and regs to that of a Navy pilot being blamed for whatever happens, even if a meteorite fell from outer space next to his plane. However, this harsh and unyielding Navy code may have applied to everyone but McCain, the commander’s son. “Trump is correct when he says McCain is NOT A HERO.”

The issue of McCain’s “Tokyo Rose” type, wartime broadcasts into U.S. POW compounds, to me, is the most upsetting. My students

came into classrooms right after getting off of planes at O’Hare Airport where they were SPIT UPON by leftist, anti-war cultists fired up by the Bill Ayres crew of America Bad, “Hell No, We Won’t Go” rhetoric. Being able to wait out the war in my classroom and that of my University of Chicago colleagues was the ticket to march along Michigan Avenue. The Vietnam soldiers who didn’t have rich fathers, who couldn’t score a high lottery number, who simply didn’t want to go to college were the country’s unlucky ones. “You’re playing with my future,” one rich son blurted out to me one day when I flunked his English paper.

Many of these returning veterans were extremely stressed out, back when PTSD was not a diagnosis. “Read a book,” I said in exasperation to one of them who couldn’t understand what I meant when I assigned a book review, not a book report. A book was the farthest thing from their minds, but a bomb still exploded in their heads and I, as a young teacher, had not the slightest comprehension of what they had experienced.   KERRY AND MCCAIN 2

And here we have a media, a country calling John Sidney McCain a war hero even as unexplained issues and gross misconduct are finally coming to the surface. Even so, during the recent Donald Trump media frenzy not one alphabet cable news flapper even broached these topics. “During McCain’s time in the US Senate, when it was known that American POWs were still being held in Southeast Asia, McCain worked to block repatriation though evidence of surviving POWs was overwhelming.”  Is this true? Why would it be so difficult for some reporter, some editor with corporate support to dig a little deeper, to ask McCain himself, to research Vietnam archives, to ask the question: “Did you, Senator, suppress information about missing Americans, about our MIAs left behind?”

My favorite novel is Joseph Conrad’s HEART OF DARKNESS. As Kurtz unfolds the darkness in his own heart, the metaphor of the heart’s jungle deepening becomes ever more dangerous, threatening, surreal, evil. Did the evil of Vietnam forever blacken the heart of America? “What kind of nation would elect, again and again, criminals and degenerates to high office, each designated as the “leader of the free world?”  Here is one commenter: “I have spoken with a number of senior pilots from all services about    McCainMcCain, a number of whom served with him. To a man, they detest him. They don’t generally go into details, but most of it stems from what a pampered ass he was till his dad said, ‘Shut Up and Color.‘”

I feel so much regret now that as a very young instructor I did not understand my Vietnam students, that I treated them like all the rest of the undergrads, that I stayed in meetings when those who didn’t get sent over, berated them. I hurt now because of academia’s disgraceful treatment of the vets from Nam. The academics considered themselves superior because they and their students qualified for collegiate deferment!

Are we finally meeting the real John McCain?

by Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

“None of that is true!. . .I used to meet with him (McCain) in my office at the end of the day and debate with him. . .we debated quite fiercely but there was never any personal prejudice between us; the debate was between two men in a manly style. But after that we were quite friendly. We didn’t take it personally,” said Tran Trong Duyet, McCain’s jailer, in 2008 when Duyet was aged 75.

But after his release from the Hanoi Hilton (Hoa Lo Prison), John Sidney McCain, Navy pilot and son of Adm. John McCain, Jr., commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific theatre which included Viet Nam…told a much different story. McCain said this about his experiences as a prisoner: “They bounced me from pillar to post, kicking and laughing and scratching…I was beaten every 2-3 hours by different guards.”

His North Vietnamese captor calls this story pure fabrication. Political puffery is the reason given by the military prison director for McCain’s side of the story of his captivity. The race for the White House causes politicians to enhance military exploits, suggested Tran.

In a 1969 front page news story with a Saigon (UPI) dateline, the military publication “STARS & STRIPES” wrote: “The son of the U.S. Commander in the Pacific said despite bombing civilian targets in North Vietnam, he (McCain) has received VERY GOOD MEDICAL TREATMENT since being shot down according to Radio Hanoi.” 

This news story confirms the testimony in the pdf file of Eugene Cannon. “Here is one (account) of captured U.S. pilot in North Vietnam. . .LCMDR John Sidney McCain, service number 624787, USS Oriskany. . .’I was a U.S. airman engaged in the crimes against the Vietnamese country and people. . .After I was captured I was taken from a hospital in (?Danang) where I received very good medical treatment.'”  Now, even one anecdotal comment suggested that McCain was able to walk onMCCAIN ON CRUTCHES his own after being released from enemy prison and that the very familiar picture shown over and over in the American media of him on crutches actually was taken stateside when the Navy flyer went into an American hospital for follow up surgery!

An even more uncomfortable sidebar of the McCain captivity saga is linked to a four time Pulitzer Prize winning, war correspondent’s story of John McCain’s wartime broadcasts. Sidney Schanberg’s “massively documented expose about McCain’s role in the POW/MIA cover up” is extremely painful to read, report on, even to contemplate, given “facts” we may not have been told. 

Ron Unz was reportedly the source for “John McCain: When ‘Tokyo Rose’ Ran for President,” an 8,000 word original article taken from the Schanberg piece that came out in 2008. McCain’s leading role in the subsequent cover up: “hundreds of America’s Vietnam POWs had indeed been left behind” was the main theme of this expose.    MCCAIN SPEECH

Additionally, in 1993, “NYT broke the story that a Politburo transcript found in Kremlin archives fully confirmed (the) existence of additional POWs. . .and Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski agreed.”

Here is one commenter speaking out about John McCain in a post entitled “The True Military Record of John McCain Written by an Active Marine,” 9/03/08. “McCain has never really earned

anything. He is from a wealth pampered background and not fit to lead this nation. A ‘war hero’ doesn’t finished (sic) 894th out of 899 and still get stationed at a Navy champagne unit and promoted ahead of all but two of his 898 other classmates. A ‘war hero’ doesn’t crash three U.S. Navy jets out of sheer incompetence and ineptitude, including two during non–combat training sessions. A ‘war hero’ doesn’t get promoted to squadron commander of the air field named after his own grandfather immediately after crashing his third airplane. . .”

This series on 2008 Presidential Candidate John McCain, (R), who lost to Barack Hussein Obama, will feature more quotes from this Marine’s post in later pieces. Look, there is enough here for the American people to expect our mainstream media to tell us both sides of this man’s life story.

McCain started the whole dust-up with Presidential Candidate Donald Trump when he (McCain) called 9,000 of Trump’s AZ supporters CRAZIES! When Trump showed up and spoke to these average, American citizens, the media picked up McCain’s RINO-Dem, uni-party screed and jumped all over Donald Trump.

Trump said on NBC’s morning show of July 20, 2015, that McCain “has been terrible on the border. . .vets complain to me all of the time” about what the AZ senior senator has failed to do for them. So yet again, we’re getting a uni-party meme parroted by our media for its interlocking corporate boards. Where is the truth, here?

 

South Florida Baked Goods

by Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

“They found extra ballots,” said U.S. House of Representatives Candidate Tod Mowery (R-Fl) who took umbrage with a 912 Values Voter who still maintains he (Mowery) had something to do with Allen West losing the big vote recount to current Representative Patrick Murphy (D-Jupiter), now a Florida Senatorial candidate. Clearly, the Allen West recount incident and all of the drama that went with it is still on voters’ minds and certain Conservatives

aren’t buying the official explanation. Mowery gave this reporter a very reasoned and specific explanation and time line of events of the Saturday night into Sunday morning recount which was delayed because, according to Mowery, “The landlord would not allow the building to remain open…and everyone went into panic mode.” He said, “There was no way to create a safe area to run the limited number of ballots through the machine.”

But the Conservative operative said, “How can you not get the alarm to shut off?” Mowery’s attempts to get this reporter to reveal sources went nowhere, and at the beginning of the interview, he was very combative. The Conservative said, “How come they found an extra box?” The source posed a question to Mowery about double counting. “That was really weird,” the source added.

Mowery explained that this election was the first time in 30 years that St. Lucie County Election Supervisor Democrat Gertrude  

Gertrude Walker honoree honored Black History Makers Awards Banquet at the Pelican Yach Club
Gertrude Walker 

Walker had encountered the situation of a two page ballot and that her old machines counted each page as one vote, rather than one voter voting on two pages. The Conservative source had said earlier, “How come (Walker) had more votes than the President of the United States? That was really weird.” This source said a highly placed member of the West team told their 912 meeting that Tod Mowery was instrumental in West losing the race!”

Walker, according to Mowery, realizing that the entire ballot recount kerfuffle was her responsibility alone, collapsed and had to be hospitalized, late into the Saturday night before the re-count was due to be performed at 12 noon the next day, Sunday. “We could not get the data to download,” he said. When election operatives finally were able to get the system back up “It was 12:06 p.m.” Continuing with his thorough explanation of election recount mania, Mowery said, “. .the state system would not allow the new re-count figures.” “Too late, not valid, missed the cut off…the facts are the facts,” he said.

Other questions that upset the 18th District Candidate involved the time he spent in Jupiter, Florida as that city’s assistant town manager. Jupiter is classified as one of Florida’s six Sanctuary    cities. (1) “I was aware of aspects, but I was not involved,” Mowery said. He said he spent only one year as assistant town manager from May, 2005 to May 2006. He said he was involved with the recruitment process for the Scripps Institute. “I had no part with the town of Jupiter being designated as a Sanctuary City.”

He reviewed the town’s dilemma in regards to the many day laborers flooding streets, blocking traffic, causing problems the town council had to solve. The El Sol, non-profit, volunteer center came to be and currently registers the day workers who may or may not be illegal immigrants. The Sanctuary City issue became white hot after the Pier 14 killing of an innocent, pregnant young woman in San Francisco, shot dead by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times, but still managed to get back in across our sieve-like Southern border!

Other Florida Sanctuary Cities include DeLeon Springs, Deltona, Lake Worth, Miami, and Sanford of the Martin-Zimmerman racial and media frenzy. (2) Jupiter was added to this list on 3/21/08, two years after Mowery left. E-mails to the Mayor, Councilmembers, and Chief of Police of Jupiter for comment have not been returned.

Clearly, the Allen West re-count continues to bother many Conservatives who were very upset about the loss of their beloved war hero to the young man with the rich father who didn’t even own a home in the district when he first ran. As I understand, he has since purchased a home in Jupiter.

This reporter continues to follow the West-Murphy controversy and has a rather deep moral quandary concerning how Palm Beach Catholic Bishop Gerald Barbarito remains silent about Murphy. In bald conflict with Catholic teachings, this young politician with the Irish Catholic name is reviewed on ballotpedia.com admitting he is pro-abortion, pro same-sex marriage, for animal rights over human rights and is conflicted about whether or not God has a place in the public sphere. When asked about telling the laity one set of teachings and letting Murphy glean the Catholic vote by a code of silence, the Bishop replied by mail that, he, too, is for the un-born.  

 

When you combine the Catholic vote, the Murphy success in the very murky re-count battle his first time out for public office, plus the ENORMOUS amount of money he spent to get each vote, along with his huge war chest in Congress, you have to wonder if this candidate will continue the pay to play politics that so infuriate Conservative voters. When you consider Tod Mowery, who is a St. Lucie County Commissioner, you have to ask the question, “If the re-count battle turned out to be such a mess, how can this candidate run an office in the U.S. House of Representatives?”

Also, after the comedic opera known as Bush v. Gore, why didn’t the Commissioners and the 30 year plus Election Supervisor pro-actively plan for contingencies, such as not even a butterfly ballot, but merely a two page ballot? Was there no techy type that could have been hired to fix those computer glitches, now a buzzword being used to explain all of these digital disgraces? And then I beg the question, was the whole re-count thing baked goods?
