Trump right about Hanoi John McCain


by  Gordon DuffVT Senior Editor

It pains me to have to back Donald Trump (who dodged the draft during the Vietnam War for year after year) on John McCain but here is what Trump should have said:

by  Gordon Duff,  VT Editor
Presidential pardon from Nixon saves John McCain from treason and collaboration charges according to Rolling Thunder Founder and 3 war veteran, John Holland….
Why nothing in the news…
Why no reports…..
Why was the truth kept from American during the election?


Some of us have seen the reports about John McCain. I know what Ted Guy had to say about McCain and I know how angry POW activists have been at his betrayal of their cause. What I didn’t know and that few of us knew, is that John Holland, Rolling Thunder Founder, had called for the Republican Party to remove McCain from the ticket.

This isn’t a minor story and isn’t one that has gone away just because the election is over. Many of us who knew what McCain had done didn’t know how much power the money boys behind Palin and McCain could go to suppress this information during the campaign.

Rally after rally, fellow POW and controversial Medal of Honor holder, Bud Day, stood beside McCain, backing him up. With substantiated claims of hundreds of counts of treason, collaboration and aid and comfort to the enemy suppressed against McCain and a number of unnamed other POWs who were expecting to be prosecuted when returned, this entire act during the election seems sick.

Ted Sampley, Vietnam combat veteran, now deceased, wrote at length about McCain and Day. Sampley’s article on Day’s Medal of Honor is extremely revealing. (US Veterans Dispatch)

With McCain supporters continually touting his heroism and attacking Democrats that served honorably in Vietnam like John Kerry and Al Gore, the unavoidable embarassment that their standard bearer may have been the biggest American traitor since Benedict Arnold, confidence in Conservative news sources has to disappear, at least with veterans.

A fair comparison to McCain would be Jane Fonda. Both spent time in North Vietnam.

  • Both are accused of helping North Vietnam, Fonda by being photographed and McCain by doing many propaganda broadcasts and helping the enemy plan attacks on American soldiers.
  • Fonda returned to be reviled and spit on while McCain returned to the Senate, spending years helping North Vietnam keep Americans prisoner and amassing a huge fortune trading on heroism and sacrifice we are now told never happened.
  • Of the two, Fonda was the more honest and by far had done the least harm to the United States.
  • According to sources, it was John McCain that fired the rocket that caused the Forrestal incident, the most serious disaster on an American ship. Stories make him out to be a “hero” and an “unnamed” total idiot is blamed. McCain is said to be that idiot with his daddy running cover for him. Thus far, Jane Fonda has never attacked one of our ships. We will be taking a look at both McCain and Fonda and try to verify claims. Perhaps they could have a contest to see who killed the most Americans. No tally as to how many pilots were shot down using intel McCain admits givint the North Vietnamese has been made. The Forrestal incident may be a huge coverup in itself.

McCain’s cover story, that the plane behind him fired a missile into his plane is at odds with other stories that blame exploding bombs on some other part of the ship. The investigation and all records involving his military records were under the direct supervision of his own father.

We are going to look at Holland’s evidence and see if there are statements from people on the Forrestal.

Colonel Ted Guy was preparing criminal charges against John McCain when Nixon took Admiral McCain’s little boy under his wing. Where are McCain’s 32 propaganda tapes that were made during Vietnam and broadcast over the radio to US troops? (Colonel Ted Guy)

Why did McCain accuse American soldiers of war crimes during Vietnam? What did he get in return?

If our news media can go thru a presidential election hiding all of this from the American people, nearly putting someone like this in office, what else are they capable of? What else have they done? What else are they hiding?

Vietnam veterans are requesting that the records of the debriefing of all POWS be made public. Those who were heroes need real recognition and shouldn’t have to hide behind a presidential pardon they never needed or wanted.

Those who betrayed their country, some to sit in public office, on corporate boards or to travel around the country basking in glory and pointing fingers at others need to get the homecoming they earned. We spent the last 35 years honoring ALL the POWs while 58,000 dead and another 200,000 plus dying were neglected and abused, denied jobs, denied medical care and hated by their fellow Americans.

None of this would matter if the shadow of Vietnam would die too. It lives on. While some of us are still around, perhaps a moment of justice is in order to help the forgotten and the fallen, wherever their spirits are tonight.

Imagine. Some people were actually worried that Barak Obama might be a Muslim or born in Africa. The same people, with credible information from unimpeachable sources stating that John McCain is a Communist agent and traitor didn’t blink an eye.

Could the problem be, lets say….color? More on John McCain and his history:

  1. I am a Navy Veteran. Your site is a fraud. I highly doubt you are even a Veteran, let alone a Vietnam Veteran. This site is fake and published to attack people who oppose Trump. I support Trump, but bull shit sites like these and all the other lies being spewed by them about people against Trump, make Trump supporters look as stupid as the radical liberals. Imposters like you should be hunted down and jailed, especially when you pose as a Veteran! McCain served his country with honor. He spent 5 1/2 years as a POW in Vietnam and tortured beyond anything you or I could imagine. The movie Hanoi Hilton was very accurate in the depiction of what him and other POWs went through at the hands of the N Vietnamese, I suggest you watch it. If you don’t like his politics, that’s fine, but leave his honorary service to his country out of it. He never caused the death of anyone, except for the deaths of N Vietnamese. He was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal and the Navy Flying Cross. He was awarded the cross for finishing his bombing run on a Hanoi power plant even though his plane had taken a SAM hit. He didn’t eject until after his bombs were released then he ejected. That’s when he was captured. I know this is probably falling on deaf ears, because people like you aren’t about truth or America, so you don’t care or give a shit about anyone else but your own agenda.

  2. …Democrats that served honorably in Vietnam like John Kerry…???

    This is a bit odd coming from Gordon considering it was Kerry who denounced Vietnam combat vets before congress as baby killers and made a mockery of the Purple Heart for demanding and getting one for a scratch not requiring a Band-Aid to cover it. Kerry was already back then doing the bidding of the “neo-cons,” who damned their own country for that war, while today he remains a prominent supporter of the Israel-first “neo-con” agenda.

  3. Shutting down the efforts of many American family members of MIA ‘s from Vietnam kept them from learning the truth about McCain (or is it McCann?) true behavior and activity with his captors. McCain, Bush, Clinton’s all traitors in my opinion Preserving and protecting America is not their first priority..

  4. Whoever has these tapes must release them….. McCain posing as an American and war hero is a Global Security Hazard attached to nuclear weapons gone rogue

  5. The destructive life patterns of McCain Sr and McCain Jr remind me of the life patterns of NAZI Bush Sr and Bush Jr. However, the McCains are responsible for thousands of deaths, whereas the Bush family is responsible, since 1942, for hundreds of thousands of deaths- if not over a million. More info at this link:
    I wonder if Bush Sr.´s corpse will be buried in the U.S., or in the cemetery of his village of birth ?

  6. PTI,

    This is an incredible story….if this story is credible… solidifies my belief that cover-ups is one of the predominate activities of government… every turn there are skeletons in the closet….the sad part is that…the sheeple are to lazy to do any independent research and or thinking for themselves….they’ll swallow the kool-aid the pressituites serve and run with it…check out any CCM outlet…

  7. It goes without saying that the tapes are sealed and unlikely to be released by our “leaders” anytime soon. Surely there must be one CIA, NSA, etc., smartie who could find them. In the meantime, what did Vietnam do with their set of the tapes? It seems unlikely that they would willingly destroy such information, although they might have been destroyed in a raid, during transport, poor storage conditions, etc. Is it possible that
    the Vietnamese would have passed copies on to their allies such as the Chinese or Russians where they are shelved among similar archives?

  8. Trump instinctively senses that McCain’s hero story is a facade and yet he probably doesn’t even know the worst of it. In the Forrestal disaster American sailors were burned alive as a result of McCain handling a jet fighter plane like a reckless adolescent driving a car on the highway. It is surprising that someone as well informed as Trump did not mention this when he was attacked about questioning McCain’s hero status. How could Trump miss the photos of McCain happily posing with ISIS killers? Of course the media is complicit covering for McCain without question. Trump’s researchers have a lot of work ahead.

  9. him meeting with terrorists, his “bomb-bomb Iran” terrorist garbage, his Vietnam war crimes and SO MUCH MORE.. his “presidential pardon” should NOT have allowed him to hold ANY public office. “get outta jail” I can understand but HELL NO to any “position of power”.
    hillary is a multiple felon too, but no one tells the truth about THAT, is ineligible!

  10. You shouldn’t make nasty remarks about Benedict Arnold. He was a great British and Canadian hero able to tell right from wrong.

  11. Those who are still protecting this criminal think they are invisible and coated with teflon. Anyone that would leave behind our people and obstruct efforts to right this wrong was chosen by monied interests to reek havoc on hapless souls. The silence is deafening from our useless senate and congress .The fourth estate is now the fifth column. VT, please crack this outfit, and thank you Mr. Duff for digging this out.

  12. Not just McCain but his father also (traitor), who buried and covered-up the U.S.S. Liberty inquiry. Those 39 dead and countless injured by Israel’s deliberate attack, still cry out from their graves for justice.

    And then there’s John “Wet-Start” McCain that killed all those men on the Carrier, needlessly, because of his stupid, prideful antics.
