John McCain was born into a military family. His father and grandfather were Navy admirals, which was a great advantage for career security. That apparently came in handy when he graduated from Annapolis fifth from the bottom of his class, 894 out of 899, and when he crashed, damaged and lost a total of five planes. He was shot down in Vietnam and held captive for five and a-half years. Upon return to the United States, fellow prisoners testified that McCain had cooperated with their captors to gain favors. After he was elected to the Senate in 1998 on his image as a hero, he became a war hawk and consistently supported military intervention around the world. McCain cast the deciding vote that kept Obamacare in operation. He succumbed to brain cancer on August 25, 2018. -GEG
John McCain, the last great active American political figure of the 20th century, has lost his battle with cancer at age 81.
For both good and ill, McCain helped shape the purpose and application of Washington’s considerable power for nearly half a century. Partly because of that mixed track record, his passing leaves as an open question what kind of future that McCain-style politics—with its robust, moralistic interventionism both at home but especially abroad—has in a political party and country that elected his rhetorical tormentor, Donald Trump.

These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)

Rand Paul says that Congress seeks to amend the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) by handing over their power to declare war to the president. Moreover, Congress could only disapprove of war, which turns the Constitution on its head! Even worse, any resolution of disapproval could be vetoed, meaning two thirds of Congress would need to disapprove of a war, rather than a majority to approve of one.
Los Angeles was the birthplace of the folk-rock and hippie movement that has many strange ’coincidences’ including an incredible number of early rock stars who came from military-intelligence families and families that were highly connected politically.
