Sen. John McCain Releases 'DISGUSTING' Statement To Russians On Edward Snowden Asylum

Sen. John McCain Release 'DISGUSTING' Statement To Russians On Edward Snowden Asylum

August 1, 2013

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain today released the following statement regarding reports that the Russian government has granted Edward Snowden a one-year asylum:

“Russia’s action today is a disgrace and a deliberate effort to embarrass the United States. It is a slap in the face of all Americans. Now is the time to fundamentally rethink our relationship with Putin’s Russia. We need to deal with the Russia that is, not the Russia we might wish for. We cannot allow today’s action by Putin to stand without serious repercussions.

“The first thing we should do is significantly expand the Magnitsky Act list to hold accountable the many human violators who are still enjoying a culture of impunity in Russia. We should push for the completion of all phases of our missile defense programs in Europe, and move expeditiously on another round of NATO expansion, including the Republic of Georgia. We should challenge the political convictions and detentions of Russian dissidents such as Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Alexei Navalny. And perhaps most importantly, we should speak out on behalf of the many people in Russia who increasingly are finding the courage to peacefully demand greater freedom, accountability, and rule of law in Russia.

“Today’s action by Putin’s Russia should finally strip away the illusions that many Americans have had about Russia the past few years. We have long needed to take a more realistic approach to our relations with Russia, and I hope today we finally start.”

James Madison Declared John McCain a "CRIMINAL DEGENERATE"

James Madison Declared John McCain a "CRIMINAL DEGENERATE" 200 years ago!

Oh... Yes he did...

James Madison - Virginia Resolutions 1798:

In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/candidates/

James Madison: "...That the General Assembly doth particularly protest against the palpable and alarming infractions of the Constitution, in the two late cases of the "Alien and Sedition Acts" passed at the last session of Congress;

the first of which exercises a power "NO WHERE DELEGATED" to the federal government, and which by uniting legislative and judicial powers to those of executive, SUBVERTS THE GENERAL PRINCIPLES of free government; as well as the particular organization, and positive provisions of the federal constitution;

and the other of which acts, exercises in like manner, a power "NOT DELEGATED" by the constitution, but on the contrary, "expressly and positively forbidden" by one of the amendments thereto; a power, which "MORE THAN ANY OTHER", ought to produce universal alarm, because it is leveled against that right of "freely examining public characters and measures", and of "FREE COMMUNICATION AMONG THE PEOPLE THEREON", which has ever been justly deemed, the ONLY effectual GUARDIAN of "EVERY OTHER RIGHT"

That this state having by its Convention, which ratified the federal Constitution, expressly declared, that "AMONG OTHER ESSENTIAL NATURAL RIGHTS", "the Liberty of "CONSCIENCE" and of the "PRESS" "CANNOT" be cancelled, abridged, "RESTRAINED", or "MODIFIED" by "ANY" authority of the "United States" (FEDERAL GOVERNMENT),"

and from its extreme anxiety to guard these rights from "EVERY" possible attack of "sophistry or ambition", having with other states, recommended an amendment for that purpose, which amendment was, in due time, annexed to the Constitution; it would mark a reproachable inconsistency,

and >>>>"CRIMINAL DEGENERACY", if an indifference were now shewn, to the most palpable violation of one of the Rights, thus declared and secured; and to the establishment of a precedent which may be fatal to the other.

That the good people of this commonwealth, having ever felt, and continuing to feel, the most sincere affection for their brethren of the other states; the truest anxiety for establishing and perpetuating the union of all; and the most scrupulous fidelity to that constitution, which is the pledge of mutual friendship, and the instrument of mutual happiness; the General Assembly doth solemnly appeal to the like dispositions of the other states, in confidence that they will concur with this commonwealth in declaring, as it does hereby declare, that the acts aforesaid, are unconstitutional; and that the necessary and proper measures will be taken by each, for co-operating with this state, in maintaining the Authorities, Rights, and Liberties, referred to the States respectively, or to the people. ..."

I thought this press release was a joke.

Honestly, until I clicked on the link and saw that it is real, and viewable at his gov't website, I thought this was satire.

It could be.

I thought it was an attempt to show how ludicrous America looks, by accusing Russia of all the human / civil rights violations that our own criminal government is guilty of!

McCain is so evil. He's just dutifully following orders from above to try to get Snowden. How pathetic.

Discusting is the best term for McCain

The Real powers love mccain he is such a good stooge he will do anything they tell him. I just do not understand how those in AZ could ever elect him as Senator. But I guess the elections are all so crooked that discusint puppets like JOhn McCain gets installed not elected.

My illusions have been stripped away alright but not in the way he is thinking...

so many contradictictions in

so many contradictictions in there, and a blamelesness, a sense of self importance, that even WITH the public outcry over the nsa a, they STILL believe they've done nothing wrong.

Admitting their wrong, is the FIRST step, and this is NOT something that is gonna go away, VOLUNTARILLY, and that to them means they'll have to use FORCE, if msm/politicians arent able to manipulate the general public to an effective and illusionary level......they know what that means, WE know what that means.....the diffrence being, one party is willing to bring this to its demise, the other wants to preserve the essence that brought them all there, the other thinks nothing of destroying it.......there is only one kind of terror here, a terror against freedom

edit
we must make perpetual war, because "they hate us for our freedoms"

Really, ok, which ones........list'em?No, really.......LIST'EM

What the Obama administration

What the Obama administration has done to Snowden is a "slap in the face to all Americans". American foreign policy is a "slap in the face" to all free thinking citizens around the world. McCain's brand of "Americanism" needs to be re-evaluated.

Comrade McCain Speaks To Comrade Putin about Releasing Dissident

Comrade John McCain Speaks To Comrade Putin about how Comrade Putin should not allow dissidents from leaving Comrade John McCain's country without Comrade John McCain's permission.

Just another reason to consider what the "real reason" is for a fence on the Mexican border....

Heard this this morning on Mike Church show

http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/2013/08/05/snowdens-asylum/

interesting article to read if you want to know just how hypocritical this government has become.

And just for the record Mcdbag - YOU are the slap in the face to American's. You are a worthless pos.

We Have To Get The Word Out That McCain Is Unfit To Be A Senator

He is the most disgusting man in the Senate. My brother met him once and said he has no moral compass. He wants to weasel his way into the Indian Tribal Gaming to steal some of their profits..

McCain should know better

McCain should know better than to use words like all. It was not a slap in the face to this American; therefore, McCain's statement is false. That said, the majority of Americans would seem to support Russia's action from the latest poll data I've seen.

Go Russia! Putin is the man

Putin has an unlimited about of balls and is full of courageousness compared to the unmentionables of the west. The Orthodox country of Russia will shine brightly through the fog of deception and lies. McCain is an amazing stand up comedian though.. Acting as if Russia/Putin has somehow slapped the face of the American public, when in reality he is giving us all freedom fist bumps. Does McCain not remember Vicktor Bout? That one Russian citizen that was illegally extradited to the US, by the US, from Thailand? Yeah, he went through a fake trial and is rotting in jail for charges that were "manufactured" on him via the recently-made-public information about the DEA's illegal info grabbing and story changing policy. I would also like to remind McCain that erecting missile shields and sending his evil death machine into the blessed Republic of Georgia will have immense repercussions that the US will never be able to back out of without a conflict, a conflict between good and evil it will be.

No doubt...

The city State of Moscow has much corruption since most likely 99 per cent of the wealth of the country is located there imo. The police amount to 90 per cent of the crime there I think.

Other than that there are many beautiful places there and good people the looks of it, except for their penal colonies of course. Their prisons seem to be some of the harshest and seem to be run by some kind of a para- military as I recall.

Before it was the other way around..Russian seeks asylum in USA

that was in the Cold War era...for freedom.

But now that an American seeks asylum in Russia, then...

The tables had definitely turned this time...freedom-wise.

Dear Russia,

John McCain's brain has obviously spent way too much time in the hot Arizona sun. Please just ignore him.
