Yes, THIS John McCain. Who could forget his admission as the 2008 ultimately failed GOP presidential candidate that he was “an illiterate” who has to rely on his wife for all the computer assistance he can get.
Fast forward three years, and we find McCain tweeting with pseudo-celeb Snooki and chatting with leftist open borders advocate and multi-billionaire Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. The suddenly tech-savvy McCain now opines no one watches television anymore. Why then did he dump $ millions into deceptive TV ads trashing his able opponent this past election cycle?
The daily newspaper, which has long assigned a Johnny-McOne-Note reporter to cover the out-of-touch octogenarian, runs a Page One article and oversized photo of McCain at a senate committee hearing with the headline, “McCain talks tough on election hacking.”
Suddenly the self proclaimed computer “illiterate” is advocating “serious consequences for cyber attacks.” Yet James Clapper, director of national intelligence unequivocally asserted in response to a leading question, “They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort.”
The fact is, the much covered hacks were not only damaging to Democrats but deeply embarrassing as they revealed themselves to be everything they claim to oppose. Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee even refused to apologize for giving the questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of a presidential debate.
Let’s be clear. Cyber attacks are not new or unique to rogue nations. But the issue here is that the damning material released shows high ranking Democrat advisers at their worst in their efforts to ride Hillary’s coattails to the White House. The fact that she didn’t win not only rankles Democrats, but also John McCain, who previously called her a rock star “he could support for president.” Ultimaley he withdrew his lukewarm support from Republican nominee Donald Trump. Sharyl Attkisson’s informative exposé Eight Facts on the “Russian Hacks” is definitely worth your time.
McCain’s hearings couldn’t be more partisan if his liberal pal Chuck Schumer was conducting them. The thrust of the effort is to call Donald Trump’s election into dispute and delegitimize him prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration.
Where was McCain when Barack Obama tried to sway the Israeli elections to undermine the reelection of conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Obama even had operatives working within Israel. Not a peek from McCain about election insecurity and taxpayer dollars being directed by a sitting U.S. President to try to influence Israeli voters to vote against their Prime Minister. Despite Obama’s actions to intrude on an international election and McCain’s hypocritical inaction, Netanyahu won.
