A Monster in Our Midst
Author: Raine    Date: 2013-05-31 12:30:00

On Monday, Memorial Day, we got word that Senator John McCain took a trip to Syria.
It was a very moving experience to meet these fighters who have been struggling now for over two years,
McCain said on CNNs Anderson Cooper 360 on Wednesday night. And theyre very aware of the battlefield situation and theyre very disturbed about the dramatic influx of Hezbollah fighters, more Iranians, and of course, stepped-up activities of Bashar Assad.

McCain snuck into the war-torn country on Monday, becoming the highest- ranking U.S. official to visit since the rebellion began two years ago. The United Nations estimates more than 70,000 Syrians have died in the conflict.
I would like to stress -- He went there on Memorial Day. As you read yesterday, this is what we did on Memorial day.

Why did Senator McCain go to Syria, again?
The rebels told McCain, a prominent critic of what he calls the Obama administrations inaction on Syria, they wanted the United States to being supplying weapons and enforcing a no-fly zone in the country.

Their message was, to be frank with you: they do not understand, he said. They do not understand why we wont help them.


But neither the rebels nor McCain want American troops on Syrian soil, the senator said.

No one that I know, including [Free Syrian Army] General Idris and his battalion commanders, are asking for American boots on the ground, he said. In fact, they believe it would be counterproductive to do so.
So, here we are again. John McCain meets with Rebels, calls them heroes good guys. This is not the first time Senator McCain met with rebels and gave them glowing reviews.

Note, these two things sound quite similar. What is interesting is that just a few months earlier McCain falsely claimed that the U.S.
armed Libyan rebels in an attempt to make the case for arming Syrian rebels.
JUDY WOODRUFF: But would you also need some sort of ground forces in the area SEN. JOHN MCCAIN: No.
JUDY WOODRUFF: because Assads forces are operating very much in the middle of the civilian population.
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN: We would not.
Putting U.S. ground forces in would be not only not appropriate, but counterproductive. We just need to arm and equip these people, the same way that we did in Libya.
I am serious about this, read this. John McCain has been advocating for the United States to arm Syrian rebels for years.

It's quite similar to how he advocated arming LIbyan rebels. Sadly, it appears that it is the very ones who probably killed Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, U.S. Foreign Service, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S.
Woods. One more time... read this. It's not conspiracy; it is not tinfoil.

It is an account of what the Senator did in Libya and what his desire has been for Syria. He said: We just need to arm and equip these people, the same way that we did in Libya. Look at this picture:

http://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x416/bigtreee/pl2_zpsd07882c6.png


I said this back in February and I will say it again: This photo is inconclusive and cannot be properly sourced. (4 months later, it has not been shown to be false)

Now I ask you to look at this picture:
http://s3-ec.buzzfed.com/static/enhanced/webdr01/2013/5/29/23/enhanced-buzz-10513-1369883328-6.jpg

Senator John McCains office is pushing back against reports that while visiting Syria this week he posed in a photo with rebels who kidnapped 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims.

The photo, released by McCains office, shows McCain with a group of rebels. Among them are two men identified in the Lebanese press as Mohamed Nour and Abu Ibrahim, two of the kidnappers of the group from Lebanon.

A McCain spokesman said that no one who met with McCain identified themselves by either of those names.


I am going to ask this again: :
What if we were to find out that John McCain called for arming the very people that may have killed Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, U.S. Foreign Service, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods? When will Senator John McCain appear before the Senate to tell us what he may know? I'm just asking questions here. At a certain point, someone needs to ask specifically why John McCain has been SO vocal about the events in Benghazi.

Perhaps John McCain is hoping that these events were from Pro-Qaddafi factions? So far, it doesn't appear to be the case.

I propose this: It's time John McCain be brought forward to answer questions about his trips to Syria and Libya - under oath - in front of the Senate and his peers. Did he meet with rebels? Was he part of an arms deal? Did he play a part in the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi on 9/11/2012? Could this be why he so vocal about that day?
Is he trying to deflect from his responsibility for what happened?
It's time these questions are answered.

He's been known to hang around with rebels before. John McCain is no peace-keeper. The real question is, who is he willing to go to war with? The next question is this: Why is he so dedicated to involve our Nation with unsavory elements? Kidnappers? Killers?

It's one thing to support a revolution; it's another to support assassination.

To get back to my original point: John McCain puts war mongering above honoring the war dead.

Morning mon peeps. I have had baked goods made by a coworker. Brownies to be precise. One was espresso, the other curry. The espresso one was good, the curry one was sublime.

That is so way above the standard consumer-grade weather reports I use, I don't even understand it, but it is still fascinating. I want to figure it all out. I have learned the airport code for NAS Jax, which is a win. KNIP if you were wondering, but I bet you knew that already mon Av-Dork friend.

Hello, bloggers!! I hope that everyone is well.

John McCain's habit of going to foreign countries and urging us to chose sides in conflicts is troubling -- but expected. I am glad that he never became president.

As for myself, subbing has wrapped up for the school year. I am job hunting. I have a few things lined up for summer.

In the video below, perhaps the most cringeworthy part comes around the 56-second mark, when Kelly challenges Dobbs over his comments attributing women's role in the workplace to marriages "shattering" in society.
"Why are you attributing that to women in the workforce?" Kelly said, interjecting.
"Excuse me. Let me just finish what I was saying, if I may, oh dominant one," Dobbs said.

"Excuse me?" Kelly said.

Florida TriFecta:
On Thursday, a jury in Tampa, Florida acquitted 70-year-old retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Wald in the shooting death of his wife’s lover. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Wald’s attorney, Joe Episcopo, invoked Flordia’s “Stand Your Ground” law in defense of his client, arguing that when Wald shot 32-year-old Walter Conley — as Conley was engaged in an act of sexual congress with Wald’s wife, Johnna Lynn Flores, 41 — Wald thought the younger man was a rapist who had broken into his home..

Flores reportedly cried tears of joy when her husband was exonerated, saying to reporters outside the courtroom, “I am elated, absolutely elated.”

When Wald is released from jail, Flores said, the couple plan a celebration. “Because my husband puts me first,” she said, “he’s taking me to Waffle House.”
