Our PR firm has begun a quest to bring the “Front Runner” candidates to the ATS MIX Show for a candid interview with Dave & Johnny and to have AboveTopSecret.Com member’s questions asked. If these interviews are granted, there could be an extremely small time frame for the interviews to take place. So to insure that the ATS MIX Team is completely prepared with member questions, this thread is posted.

John I want to say that I respect the fact that you can reach across party lines.

Onto my question .

How will you bring the conservatives that make up your party's core supporter base either on to your campaign or to the polls come November ?

Thanks for granting an interview to ATS mix.

ok i guess we will have to be a lil more maintstream with our question's.

First i would like to ask him a very simple question, such as when in his life did he decide he would like to run for president, and who if anyone (political influences) suggested it to him?

Mr. Mcain, In light of things like operation northwoods or the gulf of tolkin why should any american trust the government in any way shape or form?

Do you believe in the draft? If you don’t believe in the draft are you willing to get rid of the draft law? If not, why not? If so how soon?

To Mr. John McCain,

We have a brand new hospital here in Pahrump Nevada, but they can't even do a simple colonoscopy. They mostly do cuts, scrapes and maybe deliver a baby or two. The reason is because we have no specialists. If it's anything serious the Life-Flight Helicopter takes you to Las Vegas. That big beautiful hospital just seems, like a waste of taxpayer's money. Back in the old days we delivered babies, treated injuries and more using the ambulance service. Is there anything you could do as President to help small towns with this dilemma? Maybe offer our Town Board and Commissioner's a deal they can't refuse.

Also I was wondering why you didn't come to Pahrump?
Hillary and Bill Clinton were both here at separate times.

John McCain,

1). How do you explain your "gook" comment and your hatred towards the Vietnamese people?

2). Why do you think you can represent the GOP party as opposed to Ron Paul?

3). Will you reopen the 9/11 investigation?

4). Do you agree with the border fence being built as we speak?

5). Who would be your runningmate for President?

Thank you.

Mr. McCain,

How are you going to prevent a large section of the republican party from just voting "none above". You have stated that when you say something you mean it and will follow through, and we believe you in that, but the problem is that many in the republican party do not agree with what you say, and so how do you plan to connect with the conservative base that thinks opposite of you in many areas that your past record has demonstrated.

Well, this is a heck of a step for a Presidential Candidate to make, but it doesn't surprise me a whole lot to see one of my fellow RNC brothers showing interest in the ATS community.

Ok on to the question, "Why Abovetopsecret, what was it that convinced you to agree to such a media for an interview? Thank you for your time, from a certain district representative Republican of West Michigan, who voted McCain (via absentee balot)."

Thanks for coming on ATS

While there are many important challenges that face America, the ones that affect me the most concern the securities markets.

The first is the elimination of the uptick rule. It used to be that someone who wanted to short a stock(selling shares that they do not own), needed to wait for an uptick in the stock price before shorting was allowed. In the last year the SEC has moved to completely eliminate the uptick rule.

The second considers the counterfeiting of shares. The SEC has rules against naked short selling which they enforce through Regulation SHO. Naked short selling is when a stock has been shorted without the shorters borrowing the shares from someone who owns them. This results in the creation of what can be considered counterfeit shares and is prohibited. Regulation SHO keeps track of violations of this rule. There are some stocks which have appeared on this list for over 700 straight days and the amount of shares naked short are valued in the tens of billions.

When combined, the elimination of the downtick rule in tandem with naked shorting allows the deep pockets of Wall Street (brokerages and HedgeFunds) to manipulate smaller stocks downwards almost at will. This eliminates the ability of these companies to finance future growth and often leads to a death spiral for what would have otherwise been a very successful company.

If you were elected president, how would address these issues and other stock market issues to help ensure a fair and balanced market for the individual investor? How can we pass a stimulus package to help the middle class on one hand, while at the same time allowing the criminal element of wall street to fleece them out of their hard earned money.

Also, are you in favor of restoring the Glass Steagall Act which prohibited the combination of commercial and investment banking operations? How much do you feel the repeal of Glass Steagall in 1999 has added to the current banking crisis and the current volatility of the financial markets?

And another.


It is common knowledge that the Federal Reserve is mainly made up of foriegn banking ionstitutions. It is also common knowledge that the Federal reserve creates money out of thin air and then charges the United States Interest on this money.

How do you propose the United States takes back control of their money supply from the Federal Reserve so that we have a central bank which acts in the best interest of the people instead of foriegn banking interests?

Mr. McCain,
First i would like to thank you for accepting this interview.

So now that Romney is out of the race, and you are all but guaranteed the nomination, are you beginning to think of a vice presidential candidate, in particular Mike Huckabee, in order to draw in more conservatives to your base.

Once again thank you for the interview, and good luck in your bid for the presidency.

Dear Mr.McCain

1.) In a brief, but clear and concise paragraph, state why you feel you would be the best choice, amongst every other candidate, to be the POTUS.

2.) In Your Own Opinion, who are the USA's Allies and Enemies in this day and age?

3.) You mentioned how the USA Would be in Iraq for possibly a long time. As President, will you make clear cut decisions on the entering/exiting strategy for the US military to execute if we are in time of war or conflict. I ask this, because Pres. Bush had no (and still does not) have a clear answer as to when our Military will get out of Iraq, and am questioning whehter or not you will strand them there for a century, or take them out within 2 years?

4.) How should the current state of the USA foreign policy be revamped in order to regain lost trust amongst the ever growing super powers of the world? And how will this correlate into the US's growing military?

Thank you very much and appreciate your time.

Awhile ago in your home state you were asked about illegal immigrants commiting rape, your reply was “I cannot dignify that question with an answer. So could you please answer it now infront of ATS.

Hello Mr. McCain.

While I was watching the California Republican debate; you were asked this question by the moderator.

This is a question for Senator McCain. It's along those lines of intervention. Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson said that Iran has already committed acts of war. Do you agree?

Which you then replied:

Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism. We all know that. Iran continues their efforts to build nuclear weapons. Iran is now exporting lethal IEDs and jihadists and suicide bombers into Iraq, killing American soldiers. The Iranians encouraged Hezbollah to attack Israel from Lebanon recent. Iran poses one of the greatest threats to the security of the world, and in the Middle East. I believe the Iranians have got -- we have got to bring greater pressures, diplomatic, economic, political, join with our European allies who still fear greatly the effort of the cutoff of oil from -- into Europe. We have to work together. If the Russians and the Chinese are not helpful to us, then we had better figure out a way to put additional pressures, encouraging democracy and freedom without Iraq, which is a very cultured -- within Iran, which is a very cultured society. At the end of the day we cannot allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.

First, what evidence have you received showing that Iran is specifically targeting American soldiers with 'jihadists', and also exporting IEDs?

I also understand that you were a prisoner of war in the Vietnam war. How has this affected your view of war? From the debates and quotes; especially of recent, you seem to be very pro-war.

Also, what is your stance concerning personal privacy and freedom in the United States? U.S. citizens, much like British citizens, are feeling more and more trapped and overwhelmed by the sheer amount and speed of new laws and amendments being passed; many unread - tearing away at their rights and liberties.

Lastly, would you be willing to cut any of new departments the Bush administration has ushered in to spy and harass U.S. citizens? Are you for minimal government, or are your views leaning more along the totalitarian route the current administration has adopted?

I feel these are very important questions that need to be addressed. I am very concerned in the direction our country has taken, as I'm sure you are.

I would just like to hear more clarification from you on many issues - so I can be sure my vote will count. Thanks.

I believe that you were born in Panama? Does that not make you ineligible to become President.

John will you be willing to help bring forth full disclosure on the UFO Phenomena?

Also what is your stance on privatization of public and private water rights for US citizens?

How do you 'really' think and feel about sites like this one and how do you see it helping or hurting your efforts towards keeping America safe from terrorism and Government secrecy?

Welcome, Mr. McCain. Would you explain the provision giving insurance companies the right to help devise a plan for extending US health care to Mexico in the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act of 2005, that you sponsored?

WHY DO YOU REFUSE TO SECURE OUR BORDERS? Mr. McCain, you will not receive my vote due to your policies regarding our national ports and borders.. You will not receive the TRUE conservative vote.

Why are you being widely refered to as the "AIPAC Candidate", and how can you represent the interests and rightful soverignty of the other 97% of the American People, and still sleep well at night considering the address you gave to AIPAC in 2002?
Isn't it time the American people had a real American president to represent the best interests of his American constituency, or are you just another would-be war president, given the comments you made about Arabs in your AIPAC address, it is of course a rheotorical question.
