McCain’s Twisted TruthBy William Heuisler- Republican John McCain is running again. Can he win? He spends millions to twist truth and fool Arizona But this carefully researched information untanglessome twisted truths about John McCain.
• He says he “didn’t break the law,” in the “Keating Five” But McCain conspired to stop the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB) from regulating Charles Keating’s Lincoln Savings. Among many sources, a book,Trust Me by Binstein & Bowden explains in detail how Keating bought McCain. In the early 80s Keating donated $112,000 to McCain’s campaigns and hosted $1000-a-plate fund raisers for him. For years Keating flew McCain around the US in private jets and on vacations to his CatCay Bahama Island. In1986 Keating arranged a $359,100. Fountain Square Mall “deal” (that Cindy McCain sold for 15 million in 1998). In return John McCain delayed FHLBB regulators for years as Lincoln Savings & Loan stole Life savings of retired Sun City and Green Valley Arizonans, selling them worthless, uninsured bonds as if they were covered by FSLIC.……
• The Keating Five delayed regulation of Lincoln in 1987 & 1988 while Keating stole $1.1 Billion. McCain said he was “helping a constituent” and “intended nothing improper”. But McCain never filed Financial Disclosure Statements or attempted any reimbursements until Keating was charged.

  • However he did attend meetings with 4 other Senators to protect Keating from Government inquiries. Lincoln collapsed in 1989 and then the truth was twisted again with breathtaking political dishonesty. Quoting Senate & House notes: “Senate Ethics Committee did not pursue, for lack of jurisdiction, any possible ethics breaches in McCain’s delayed reimbursements to Keating for trips at the latter’s expense, because they occurred while McCain was in the House.” The House Committee on Standards said that it too, “lacked jurisdiction, because McCain was no longer in the House”.
  • More DoubleStandards & Talk in the DC Government that is suppose to serve us, while all along they just cover up the faults of each other at our expense. Congress twisted the truth and McCain escaped justice.
  •  Remember McCainvoted to fund Obamacare.His Soros-backed McCain-Feingoldsilenced Conservatives in 2012 as IRS thugs targeted us.  McCain-Kennedy & Gang of Eight promoted Immigrant Amnesty. Mob-connected Kemper Marley gave candidate McCain $553,000 in 1982, in 1986 & 1987 McCain helped Charles Keating steal the life savings of many elderly Arizonans.
  • In Closing: Election Cycles are Critical to Our Nationwhether we sink deep into a Socialistic Nation or Restore Ourselves to a True Republic form of Government. The choices are clear, we must never support anyone that votes against or compromises the US Constitution and Our Freedoms and believe that’s what most of us believe in and hope for, and the GOP Elite Power Brokers are Afraid of: ( Time to Drain All Political Swamps)…<
