This is another example of Donald Trump and how he's not afraid to take on issues head first, speak the truth --- unlike any other politician I've seen or even heard about.
Hillary is a practiced, well documented liar and we've repeatedly seen her evasive tactics when asked simple questions even a couple of weeks ago on CNN. The vast majority Americans dislike her for her lack of honesty, straightforwardness and her sagging poll numbers reflect those views
Obviously many have looked in to this (and I'm not one), but what Mr Bell says about John McCain is spot on --- there clearly is something "fishy" "smelly" etc going on when someone gets 28 medals for a mere 20 hours in combat. There are many veterans in the United States today who have hundreds, thousands of hours of combat and no medals.
Something smells (badly) here.
“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. “Since McCain got 28 medals,” Bell continues, “that equals out to about 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.
THE TRUE MILITARY RECORD OF JOHN MCCAIN WRITTEN BY AN ACTIVE MARINE.
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 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 written up on drunk-and-disorderly, fraternization, disobeying orders, and insubordination charges more than two dozen times in less than three years.
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.
A “war hero” doesn’t have all the military records that cover his time in Vietnam and all disciplinary actions against him censored and sealed “as a matte r of national security.”
A “war hero” doesn’t get 28 medals awarded all after-the-fact “for bravery” for no other reason than being shot down and captured and then go on a celebrity public relations tour because he’s the son of two acclaimed Navy admirals.
A “war hero” doesn’t repeatedly cheat on the wife who’s back in the states waiting for him, and then cheat on her more when he returns to the states, and then divorce and abandon her.
A “war hero” doesn’t systematically vote against every single pay and benefit increase for military and veterans throughout his entire political career, all the while claiming to be “the soldier’s Congressman,” and then take credit for the passage of a G.I. benefits bill he that voted AGAINST.
A “war hero” McCain III lost jet number one in 1958 when he plunged into Corpus Christi Bay while practicing landings. He was knocked unconscious by the impact coming to as the plane settled to the bottom. McCain’s second crash occurred while he was deployed in the Mediterranean.
Yep -- after they unloaded their 2.6M long calls the past few weeks I was wondering when they'd start "prepping" to get back in via some downgrades
Only the beginning
When you say truthful, politically incorrect things like Trump does routinely, the media attacks for the sport of it.
I've seen her in action (up close) in Washington DC and it's well known she's dishonest, rarely follows through on anything she agrees to or says.
In short, a political operative with very low, if any, integrity.
By any calculation, BP knocked it out of the park folks.
Absent the massive legal overhang, it's now Game On for the institutions to start playing here again --- stock should easily run into the 50s on ridiculously low P/S (currently 1/3rd its contemporaries), opportunities for net margin improvement (currently 1/5th its peers), huge cash stockpile ($40B by this quarter) and its attractive reserves portfolio being bolstered weekly as evidenced by the recent Siberian oil stakes / investments.
I expect resumption of their share buyback program soon and they're long overdue to at least match their peers on the net margin front --- doing so should return BP to cash flow generation figures comparable to its peer group and should push P/S valuations close to those observed more broadly in the integrated oil space (1- 1.1) --- in BP's case around the $100/share level -- in line with the valuations of its peers (easily achievable).
They showed up in the midterms and boy did the Dems get a shellacking, didn't when Romney and McCain ran --- I think this time you're going to get a major conservative turnout --- they are fed up with losers running their silly agendas and eating up bandwidth when the country has more pressing problems like competition, China, govt excess spending (Democrat Agenda).
Could be a messy summer
Incompetent Obama sure seems fixated on his radical agenda while he racks up more debt than all the administrations before him COMBINED. He's a total failure.
Not sure why you limited the discussion to home grown when I was referring to the global jihadist problem (e.g Air Products in France), but since you did let me remind you the instances you cite account for merely a fraction of the single 9/11 event deaths. If one factors in the African continent and the horrific jihadist record there, it's abundantly clear Radical Islam is responsible for more deaths to innocents globally than by any other means, even declared wars.
As for concealed carry, it's ideal under any scenario and you, since you're troubled by home grown extremists, should advocate for its wider use.
The decision was not unexpected and somewhat logical on the legal front. The unfortunate thing is the program's a bust having only helped a little less than 8M (out of the 45M uninsured)............total failure and big time costly for what little it's done. Another govt bureaucratic abortion --- the norm for the silly feds.
I wonder why it took Ford so long to adopt? (they're decades behind in thinking on many fronts) -------the world is moving fast and the Detroit-Dinosaurs need to step up the pace.
She donates to Democrats and to Republicans, but is a Moderate Republican in disguise. She's a class act with how she's helped people.
It's horribly sad what young black folks are doing in these inner cities --- why won't Clueless Obama address this??
