John McCain, war hero and giant of the Senate, dies at 81
The Hill ^ | 08/25/18 | Alexander Bolton

John McCain, a giant of the Senate who survived years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam to become a leading actor on the political stage for decades, died Saturday at the age of 81.

McCain’s death from brain cancer came more than a year after he announced he had the condition in July of 2017.

His family announced Friday that he had chosen to discontinue medical treatment for an aggressive gioblastoma because the “progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age” had rendered “their verdict.”

The news prompted an outpouring of tribute and sympathy from Republicans and Democrats alike, a testament to the respect McCain built among colleagues in both parties despite his habit of calling them out during clashes over politics and policy.

Now he doesn’t have to “officially” retire from the Senate. All I am saying...

He has probably been gone for awhile. Did he also retire?

Finally admitted it huh?

I guess the corpse was stinking up the place too much to continue to play “Weekend at Bernies”.

John McCain will get no respect, mourning or honor recognition from me...no, RIP...only an introduction to his forever new master, “Satan”, himself. This man was evil from head to toe. He never thought of his country first, only himself. He and Obama are two of a rotten kind. May Satan own them in the hereafter when they arrival there.

I am sorry Lord, Almighty, my Father in Heaven, but these two men and Mitt Romney have caused much damage and pain the the American people in many ways!!!

He escaped the hangman’s noose.

Now God has him to judge.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
- Marcus Tullius Cicero
