Activist James Morris Confronts John McCain for Ignoring Israeli Attack of USS Liberty

Many call him the Manchurian Candidate; at any rate McCain is a sellout to his fellow sailors...

John McCain
McCain just before his unexpected interruption.

(SALEM) - Memories of the deadly and intense 1967 Israeli attack on the American Navy ship, U.S.S. Liberty, will never go away, regardless of how much politicians attempt to ignore it.

Logically, one might assume that U.S. Senator John McCain would be a proponent of this movement for accountability, as a former U.S. Naval officer. No dice though. He is a supporter of Israel, an apartheid government gulity of years of war crimes against a mostly disarmed civilian population.

There is little I enjoy more, than knowing that one of our friends was able to humiliate a dirty public official.

In recent weeks our dear friend Dr. Frank Romano totally disrespected a top official in the Palestinian Authority for failing to address the ongoing hunger strikes in Occupied Palestine; our writer Jennifer Fierberg sat directly across from Rwanda President Paul Kagame during a recent US visit, making his supporters more than nervous, and now we get to show our good friend James Morris in Los Angeles, giving the one-two to John McCain for having ignored the U.S.S. Liberty issue.

And McCain considers himself a patriot...

Wearing a POW/MIA shirt under his sport jacket and bearing it for all to see after calling McCain out, officials with the event quickly rushed our friend out of the area, but not before he made his point. Nobody like McCain should have a license to speak publicly without answering to the public. If he wants to dance, he can't always expect to lead.

Salem-News.com remains committed to the idea that any act of aggression against the United States must be dealt with in open channels, not swept under the rug. We appreciate James Morris, Phil Tourney, Mark Glenn and so many others who will never let this story disappear.

Insane McCain should be tried and hung for treason(s) and for many instances of high crimes etc, but so should most of the many-blood suckers (another term for politicians) in DC like the entire Bush administration (both) and the entire of congress (house + sen) minus three that were seated for that last bush, and those that are there now. Remove all those that hold a dual citizenship from any sensitive military positions other than the front line boots. Also from any sensitive political office, like the various congressional committees that handle sensitive classified information. Some times I imagine all the Generals that fought the cold war in Ikes day, as a permanent power source. Just attach magnets to their corpses and grab up all that free energy from their spinning in their graves.

"Editor: I fail to follow your point. The thing about me is that I have no blinders'' You must have instead very dark welder glasses on. Most Americans are not aware of the term Crypto Jews (Ashkenazies). John Kerry is one of many in Washington. He pretends to be a christian--like many closet USA President Jews. Tim should do a history check on Kery's grand pa and his 57 Heinz variety wife and while at it--her dead first husband Mr Heinz dies plane crash--once dead--Kerry dumps wife marries Bimbo wife. Blinders? There is more like 80% Jews in office. Regarding the uSS Liberty--I keep reading--Israel attacked/planned these murderous events (911 ect) Nope! America uses, pays Israel as a hitman. Ever wondered why Israel can kick Uncle Scam at any time and get away with it---blackmail Piss Israel off--Ordinary Americans will be in shock--- American Jews have plans--just around the corner. Mel Gibson's Edge of Darkness is a must to watch movie--ignore the daughter part. Corrupt politicians funding secret nuke factory making dirty suitcase bombs and goal to explode them and blame it on Arabs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJLhQXmFSXA Must watch--Mel--what is the publics most fear-- Public humalation--I do not give aFK about it anymore :^/

"There is little I enjoy more, than knowing that one of our friends was able to humiliate a dirty public official." McLame is as dirty as they come he has sold out the military MANY times. His betrayl of the Vietnam Vets should have put him in prison.

When you examie all the facts in the USS Liberty attempted sinking, only one conclusion is possible. LBJ and the Head of Israel conspired to sink the USS Liberty.

Excellent article on the real truth about the USS Liberty. Tim. Also good to know that survivor Phil Tourney is back on air doing podcasts. He was threatened by Mossad in front of his wife at an L.A. hotel last year and had something sprayed in his face. I'm glad he's doing ok. I thought he may have been poisoned.
I have bookmarked you and will spread the word.

Also I agree with the comments about aerosol spraying causing diseases. IT's biowarfare against the masses. Many have become sick and died and its being covered up thanks to the CDC's phony 'study' that took them 4 yrs to complete on a 350k gov funding. They gave UCI $4 million to study video games, but gave 10x less for a serious illness that can kill millions slowly and painfully. See http://www.morgellonsresearchgroup.com.

Why does everyone ignore the killing of our Special Forces (helicopter shut down over Afghanistan) by Obammer? Why does everyone ignore the death of soldiers at Ft. Hood by a fellow soldier wichita turned out to be a terrorist and handled as workplace violence by Obammer and his Criminals? Why was that terrorist not tried yet? Because Obammer is a Muslim and loves terrorists. Why do we have so many oldies in prison while the terrorists being released by Obammer? Why is it that our soldiers fight in a war with Obammer not want to win it because he loves the terrorists? How about an answer to these questions. Because Obammer hates America and what it stands for, because the hates the Military, because he is a lier, a terrorist loving Muslim, a Traitor, commits treason, and a Communist. He has the blood of thousands of troops on his hands. Obama = disgrace

J. Reece, so where is the evidence? McCain and Graham both come from states that are heavily populated by veterans, and still they win. What do you know, other than rumors from propagandists? We now have a president that uses drones to kill from five miles up, and many of those who were outraged by ten seconds of water boarding that got intelligence and no one was physically harmed, have no problem with the drone killings. So years ago when they said Bush was helping the radicals recruit new terrorists, why so quiet on Obama's behvior?

"Why pick out just McCain for this [weakling] whipping? LBJ, a democrat, was president during this war crime who called back our jets to help the Liberty. It was a democratic congress that sat on it's hands and did nothing." Democrats, Republicans? What's the difference when it comes to appeasing a CRIMINAL foreign nation that apparently has MOST if not all of the American government and its "leaders" on a short leash? If a sitting Republicn president(Nixon?) had been in LBJ's shoes, do you think he could have taken on Israel all by himself? I don't think so! The only Presdient who ever really stood up to Israel was murdered(JFK)! This is about REAL Americans asking accounatability from theirALLEGED representatives, not which party was in office when USS Liberty was attacked. Just what are the Republicans doing about this issue today(a well as the Democrats)- that's right- NOTHING!

J. Reece June 5, 2012 7:01 am (Pacific time)

It would appear that John McCain functions the way he does primarily because of some past history which has made him a tragic figure. One cannot know, but can only speculate that there is something in the personal history of John McCain which has allowed him to become far from honorable, kept and in some cases arguably treasonous. Speculation has also cenetered around the personal life of Lindsey Graham, Senator of South Caroline, who also very often takes positions which are contrary to the interests of the United States and US citizens. It is the compromised politician, the politician who has some past personal history and the risk of disclosure and political destruction by the treasonous mainstream media, which makes congress take the most outlandish and arguably treasonous positions against the American people, interests which are pushed by foreign interests (principally, the federal reserve families)to the detriment our nation.

McCain is a full on Hitler, playing both sides. One minute he's pretending he's against torture, and the next he screaming demands to imprison American citizens with no due process. Adam Smith same thing, one minute he's the co-sponsor of the NDAA, greasing it through the house, the next he's pretending to be against detention by 'introducing' a bill to take out detention, knowing damn well it would not pass. Then of course, he signed right on to the NDAA again last month anyway, citizen detention intact. These scumbags must GO. Unfortunately in McCain's case he's got another 4 years. But there's no reason people can't do a recall (AZ law?) McCain+Smith= Hitlers Tell your friends, family, neighbors -vote OUT any incumbent who voted for the NDAA bill, and demand action to stop the chemtrails that are warming the planet while DARPA gives us Morgellons. They ALL must go.

To Anonymous 2:36 PM...please note that I was discussing democrats and LBJ who were running the show when the USS Liberty was a victim of a vile war crime in 1967. The disproportionate number of Jews in congress are democrats. Jews are approximately 2% of the population, so how many in congress? Several times over that 2% percentage. How many are federal judges, including the three on the Supreme Court? They all vote for ongong funding for Israel, and if you call them on it they call you racist(anti-Semetic). I am accurate re: my appraisal of the situation.

Anonymous June 4, 2012 2:45 pm (Pacific time)

To anon 2:03...I understand where you are coming from. I have debates with learned friends, about blaming the "jews". My side is "what is a jew". I still have no answers. khazars,or getting biblical etc, I still dont know. But the fact is, when we look at atrocities, it is always jews. But then again, what is a jew? I do know the zionist movement, created by the rothchilds started in the late 1800's, and started WW1 and WW2, and own the education/health/government now. Anyway,I understand your concern. I could go back centuries of evidence, but I stick with speaking about the rothchild zionists. Going deeper sometimes gives me a headache :-)

Anonymous June 4, 2012 2:36 pm (Pacific time)

to anon 6:57...you wrote: Look at the disproportionate number of Jews in congress, who are nearly all Democrats who have always pushed for more funding for the criminals in Israel. I say, democrats? are you kidding? the democratic congress/senate is bad, but the republicans are even worse. With all due respect, how can I read your post, when the republicans have been worse? Altho, you are correct, that the democrats are following suit, and that is because, they are owned by the bankers, same as the republicans..In the first years of the bush admin, I was on street corners saying no to all these wars, and democrats were by my side..NOW? they are all gone and I stand alone. The republican/democrat, congress/senate are all bought and paid for by the bankers. They are the same. The basic fact here, which you are trying to get away from by using the non-existent two party system is> israel did this, killed americans, so that the U.S. would invade Egypt. israel (actually israel owners ie: rothchilds) did the same thing in regards to iraq, and now they are going to do it to invade Iran. Iran, Libya, etc, were never a threat to the U.S. Never. Iran has not started a war in 200 years, while the democratic/republican regime of the U.S. have invaded country after country on lies, and nothing more than taking resources and building their world empire, on the lives of not only those in other countries, but the lives from American troops.

A lot of urban legends re: McCain and others, but one thing we have extensive records on, video and other documents, is the lies by zionist John Kerry (Kohn). Having lived the history back in the day, I see how some have distorted the history for political purposes. Just the same Tim, as I prefaced in the other post: "Are you a combat veteran who has been in the warrior slog day in, day out for as long as it takes? These congressional Jews scare you? Appears they do, so why else pick on someone who is not the major policy maker in this matter. It's all political, for you have permanent ideological blinders on." Suffice you compromise and kneel to those who you think you have something in common with like Kerry. I assure you he, and all the zionists in congress pay zero attention to you, and will contiue that, until you point out there aberrant behavior, then they will bring out the fly swatter. These are evil creatures, andyou have no chance to even register even minimal notice.

Editor: I fail to follow your point.  The thing about me is that I have no blinders.

The evidence was clear. Both Admiral Kidd and I believed with certainty that this attack, which killed 34 American sailors and injured 172 others, was a deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew. Each evening, after hearing testimony all day, we often spoke our private thoughts concerning what we had seen and heard. I recall Admiral Kidd repeatedly referring to the Israeli forces responsible for the attack as “murderous bastards.” It was our shared belief, based on the documentary evidence and testimony we received first hand, that the Israeli attack was planned and deliberate, and could not possibly have been an accident.

Editor: Thank you Catana

Look at the disproportionate number of Jews in congress, who are nearly all Democrats who have always pushed for more funding for the criminals in Israel. Seems Tim that you need to be more intellectually honest in this matter. Picking on a combat veteran who at the time of the attack was not a policy maker, but steeped in combat, does not make you look very insightful. Are you a combat veteran who has been in the warrior slog day in, day out for as long as it takes? These congressional Jews scare you? Appears they do, so why else pick on someone who is not the major policy maker in this matter. It's all political, for you have permanent ideological blinders on.

Editor: Are you saying he was just too busy making tapes for the NVA's propaganda team to care?
