I just talked with a friend who attended the National Prayer Breakfast. He has lots of friends and contacts on Capitol Hill.
He said he was told that McCain is like a wild man in his office. Yelling and screaming and going off on the staff like he is totally insane.
He needs to go home to his rocking chair.

So the old guard is still trying to grasp on to tyranny, while true patriots are trying to preserve and enforce the constitution. We have these clowns trying to discredit a real threat, and they go as far as labeling these men as wackos for trying to stand up against the control grid.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as “wackos.”
“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,” McCain said. “But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.”
Asked to clarify, McCain said he was referencing “Rand Paul, Cruz, Amash, whoever.”
McCain and Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) took strong exception to the filibuster, saying they support the possible use of drones to prevent terrorist attacks anywhere in the world. Some Republicans have privately worried that the high-profile stand, while garnering a lot of positive attention, will ultimately be bad for the party.
“You know, I think he’s just on the wrong side of history, and on the wrong side of this argument, really,” Paul responded in a radio interview with former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee Friday afternoon. He said he respected McCain’s service and record, but that that experience didn’t mean his colleague was always right: “I treat Sen. McCain with respect. I don’t think I always get the same in return.”
I applaud Rand Paul and the others that continue to stand up for the people, even though they are discredited at every turn. I don't like the mentality that a lot of these people in congress portray. It seems most of the people in positions of power live in perpetual fear of terrorists. The propaganda is so thick, I think these people actually believe that there are terrorists hiding under every dinner table, ready to attack.. so they will throw away OUR freedoms for THEIR irrational fears.
If we start accepting that the government will use drones only for "special missions" I think it will just pave the way for them to implement them into the control grid. So, despite talking heads trying to discredit the growing concern over public spying, I hope people will keep standing firm against the issue.

People like McCain and his ilk, don't live in perpetual fear of terrorist. They live in perpetual fear of loosing their power base. They are corrupted to the point, that our Constitution has no meaning to them anymore.

Wow, so McCain is pissed off and doesn't like "The New Guard" of Paul, Cruz, and Rubio, etc..
At least The New Guard is effective at getting answers. Here's a clip of Ted Cruz grilling Holder over the use of drones on American soil: (skip the ad)

According to McCain if you're not an impressionable young libertarian college kid, you're a whacko bird.
This coming from a sitting US Senator.....
I don't really blame him though, he is nearing 80...I wouldn't be surprised if anybody his age said something like that.
Ron Paul (77) is much sharper and open to young people.

Isn't McCain up for reelection in 2014???
Look for him to go down in flames. At least .. I hope so.
He needs to retire before he does this country, and his own legacy, any more damage.
