John McCain has meltdown over Rand's opposition to NDAA

McCain: Rand Paul's Actions on Defense Bill Give Filibuster Proposals 'Credence'

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., blamed Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for holding up amendments to the defense authorization bill, crippling the ability of senators to offer amendments in advance of a Monday evening test vote.

Paul’s office was quick to issue a denial, but McCain said that Paul’s actions could give fodder to those trying to rewrite the Senate’s rules in January.

“I find it disappointing that one member of the United States Senate feels that his particular agenda is so important that it affects the lives and the readiness and the capabilities of the men and women who are serving in the military and our ability to defend this nation,” McCain said. “I think it’s hard to answer to the men and women in the military ... with this kind of behavior, but I will leave that up to the senator from Kentucky to do so.”

TODAY... on C-Span McCain joins with his Globalist bedfellows...

and cries wolf about Syria and her WMD's!

What must McCain have done, or what must they hold over his head that he continues in such a trance and fixation of death to the globe: no peace, friendship, or trade with any. He has no intention of declaring war for that assumes personal responsibility as a member of congress on behalf of the people.

Or was he really putting us on notice that if we do not expand conflict and globalist wars, his people, his Al-Qaeda mercenaries who the CIA and McCain NATO puppets fund, will use USA supplied chemical weapons against the Syrian people.... and blame it on Assad.

It is a repeat of the take down of Libya! Happening now with the help of the propaganda media near you!

The desperation of the globalist and CFR led cabal in Congress knows no bounds and increases in volume daily!

They need war soon!

The dollar fails... taxes need to be increased and more fiat printed... attention needs to be shifted!

War is the only prescription they know and they are now masters at creating war.

I weep for the people of Iran and Syria.

Beware Middle east and Africa... you are all on the CFR list for regime change through death! You are next.

This band of cutthroats in congress, this wealthy cabal of perfidious liers and oath breakers, is each, blind to mercy and truth, and fixated on global power and hedgemony. They lie because each election proves that the people are willing to send this evil cabal right back to their mud hole in DC, each two years... and it will not stop until the best term limits in history, every two years, is used to effectiveness!

I fear our people remain blind as bats and twice as deaf. Now serfs one and all, liberty will die as their mouths are stuffed with food, their stockings and eyes giddy with new toys!


McCain melted down over 20 years ago. I saw it happen as he turned red in the face, eyes bulging, hatefully losing it with his face screwed up in a foul demonic look as he screamed, ranted and raved at those who were given an audience by the senate to plead for access to information. Information they knew the government had about their husbands, sons and brothers who were MIA. He had the women crying while men held back anger and cried unashamed because there was nothing they could do but quietly listen to his crazy vile attack. Anyone who watched that sick performance of his, felt the pain of those he attacked and would never have one iota of respect for the, can't say 'man',... person. He's just an old, melted, smelly blob on the floor of the senate no one has bothered to clean up yet.

In the decades I've seen him in congress on Cspan and when he ran for President, ONCE, and once only did he actually tell the truth. He paced the stage while fielding questions from those there to hear his speech. His reply to one man who had asked when would our jobs come back to the USA, he replied. "The jobs will never come back, I wish I could say they will, but they won't". Not good news and not what someone running for the office of president would normally say but, it was the truth. [Must have been a weak moment] Anger issues? Bi Polar? Or, just spoiled rotten.

Spoiled rotten

I'll go for spoiled rotten. Definitely.

And seems like he's loving it.

I don't know much of his political past, but to know he is a vet and what he says these days, that's largely enough for this conclusion, IMO.

War can indeed turn you reaaaally sick, once you're back home with power, plus money. Or vice versa.

F.U. McCain - You war-mongering piece of CRAP.

McCain of ALL should understand the horrors of war - especially wars WE HAVE NO BUSINESS IN - except to enrich the bankers and the military-industrial complex.

What a hypocritic - hateful piece of utter sh*t.

"McCain of ALL should understand the horrors of war"

Nah. He is a veteran, and he is in charge - indirectly, by his benevolent consulting - of our "National Security".

He knows better than you and I do. Our "National Security" is too important. He knows better since he isn't fighting anymore and can take the time to reflect on how best use, what for, our DEBT dollars ... from his sofa. Concrete stuff, you know.

While this is just too much ABSTRACT stuff from us, anti-NDAA terrorists peacemongers (???) :


Just "unintended casualties" for Mr. McCain.

Remember : National Security. THAT is important.

Ohh that video is so

Ohh that video is so heartbreaking :(

I was hoping he actually really melted down. Please don't get me excited like that again.:)

So says Hanoi John, wonder

So says Hanoi John, wonder where all those videos went from when this traitor was supposedly captive.

to quote V for Vendetta...

"Dis-GUSting" Ironic that this man was in a POW camp, and now he wants to turn this country into one. I guess he is homesick.

It sickens me greatly

that I voted for this man in 2008.

"There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it." -Ron Paul

Understood, that is how I feel about having voted for Bush

Same here.

I'll always regret my last ever "lesser of two evils" vote in 2008. But lesson learned, let me tell you. NEVER AGAIN. ... Just like the Holocaust. Never. Again.

Hey McCain. You're an asshat.


Hey McCain. you're a helmet

FU Mcsane. You've done more

Rand to military:

I may have just added another month to your life, your welcome.

I'm starting to like Rand better all the time


This is already old news.

This is already old news. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Rand voted FOR this year's NDAA since this story appeared.

Yea and you're again, too quick to judge.

NDAA 2013 limits or reduces the right to detain American Citizens on US soil without Due Process.

Rand wins.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

And your explanation for why

And your explanation for why the massive spending increase in that bill is a "win" is.....? Some folks will go to any lengths to put a happy face on Rand's actions.

BTW, legislators vote all the time against the final version against bills that they have may have improved through amendments or threats. This particular bill, however, even with the changes. was still atrocious and your boy Rand voted for it.


If you want to split the atom you must do so carefully.

NDAA 2013 is a victory for basic human rights, if the budget increase worries you, try the derivative market.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.
