Woman leaves kids to save brother in Syria

"Have a special present for you today. Courtesy of our friends at embedded it's this amazing story of young woman, whose mother of two small children, and who leaves them and risks her life to save her brother from Syria where he's fighting with ISIS. Now admit I have a soft spot for nontraditional efforts to fight terrorism. Some of you might remember that a few years ago, I did a story about a small Denmark town, where a couple of cops at an also Eleanor slave and link tore life-link kept getting calls from parents who sons had gone missing in the three. They were young men from Muslim neighborhoods. And then there were five on the newer seven who'd been radicalized. Seventy two was ten and snuck off to fight in Syria. I mean, what could we do these cops were trying to figure out what? Can we do about it? What Allen and tore life? Ultimately did was create one of the most unusual counter-terrorism approaches out there to hear their story. Just scroll to the season two called flip the script in urine visibility feed, but I listen to the stellar reporting for my colleagues Ruth Sherlock and Kelly mcevers. Here's Kelly in two thousand ten a guy set himself on fire into nesia in eventually died. People went out into the streets and demanded that the dictator of Tunisia had to go and soon millions of people across the Middle East. We're doing the same thing including in Syria. You might not remember this, but the war in Syria, actually started as a protest. Pretty soon, though, government forces started shooting protesters, and people started fighting back, that's when it became a civil war government versus anti-government. Then it became something else. I covered Syria back then, and to go there, we would have to sneak over the border from Turkey. At one point, we started to see these other guys crossing the border to. Guys with long beards and short pants carrying gun sized boxes guys who would say they were doctors. But looked like something else guys from the Gulf, the former Soviet Union Europe and Africa. And the Turks wanted to let these guys into Syria. So they could help fight against the Syrian government. What they didn't know what none of us knew was it, eventually some of these guys who came over the border would have other goals like fighting not just the Syrian government, but anyone who stood in the way of their Olten it goal to build an Islamic state.

Some are in prison. Some are regrouping around the region. But what they left behind is a newer, and in some ways, even more complicated problem, tens of thousands of people who were living under the Islamic state now have nowhere to go the world literally does not know what to do with them. Some of them women and children who chose to follow their husbands, or boyfriends or fathers to ISIS territory. Others were forced to go or kidnapped. And there are others men who lived and worked under ISIS, but it's not clear if they actually fought or killed anyone. What's more complicated? A lot of these guys are from Europe and North America countries that aren't super eager to bring back anyone affiliated with ISIS. Ruth Sherlock covers Syria for NPR, and she's been reporting on the people who ISIS left behind for months. And she has the story of one woman who's looking for her brother to protect your privacy. We're calling this woman. Rima. And her story is all about what you do when someone you love gets caught up in a situation that is way bigger than you could have imagined. Here's worth. Even before he disappeared Remo worried about how old brother, she worried because he was in his thirties and struggling, he had trouble keeping jobs. She says he'd sometimes leave his home for months, even years at a time and cut off contact with his family in Canada. He seemed depressed and then one day, Reema hood that the police had come to her parents house, apparently hit brother had been stopped trying to cross from Canada into the US and the office of the US officer asking, why are coming here. My brother told him that I have a meeting with John McCain, as in Senator John McCain, Reema says the people at the board attend him back, and then the police came to let the family and when she talked to her brother about it. He told me the same story my border. He told me that he receive an Email from John McCain, and he was a guests. And he won't go to Washington to meet him when he told me this. I'm like, okay, God. He's just sick. He had I called my mama. I told her could do. Please call Dr and just win your son in the hospital. I should no, no. He's just doing it depression. Don't worry, I'm like, no mom.

"Arrest I was listening to my radio on. Saturday five fifty campway I when I heard Mike Broomhead on in realize what was going on. Today I had an opportunity to speak to the Arizona federation of Republican. Women it was an unplanned, presentation but I will tell you Exactly what I told them this? Morning Senator John McCain, of course passed away at the age of, Eighty-one he will. Lie in state at the capital on Wednesday and people from all, over the country media from all over the world will converge on the great state of Arizona for the occasion will why because Senator John McCain whether you like it. Was a big man a great man there, are things people can agree on these days few things really but one universal reaction to the. Senator's death is a deep in abiding sympathy for his family in gratitude. For the sacrifices he made, while serving in the navy Now my my some of my opinions on, has some of the things that John McCain has done his policies the way he conducted some of his campaigns I could probably go on all day about that But today Is that, the day I met Senator John. McCain on two, occasions the first time the first occasion. Actually changed my life that was what I. Call the McCain moment the town hall, meeting in the Milwaukee Wisconsin In a witch I begged. John McCain to take it to Barack, Obama In the third, debate I did not know the event was covered by the world. Media and so I was immediately put in the spotlight Senator, McCain promise. Be whispered in my, ear what he was going to do in that third debate and, that whisper hug thing went with worldwide would viral It was at that point that I was pretty much ostracized from what you would call the, black community And to. This day I am still known among America's of African descent for that moment back in two thousand eight It costs a lot when I supported Senator John McCain It wasn't about race for me was about ideology And what are the things that I think that Senator John McCain will be remembered for amongst? Many is his ideal of reaching across the, aisle I guess in that moment for many peoples Many Democrats. That's exactly what I was doing especially if you're black democrat why is he reached across the aisle while supporting John McCain because of his ideas I was more closely tuned to his ideas then. I was a tuned to Barack Obama's ideas My? Meeting with John McCain led to the infamous. See in walk off in support of John McCain Because of Senator John McCain. In that moment my radio show at, the time I was on a weekend show Sunday night show sometimes Saturday and Sunday night show I it became a national show as people started streaming from all over the country to hear more from this. From this black guy who stood up and beg Senator John McCain to take it to Barack Obama So in a very real way even though I have grown over the years to kind of not like some of the things that Senator John McCain was saying or doing In a very, real way I am on the radio in the valley of the sun because of my interaction with Senator John McCain so on this day I will honor. The passing of Senator John McCain remembering what what standing up for ideas in classic over ideas has done for for our country has done for for. Me my career here And that was the first time that Senator John McCain or other. Times as well But again That's not. For today So the, McCain family of course and people all over the world had been doing just this praying for them sending their condolences And I do the same I also find it strange on this, day that the the media we'll talk about this a little, bit later in the show but just amazing to me If there's one thing that John McCain taught, us it was to reach across the aisle the try to, to to strike a deal With our fellow Democrats, now of course I didn't really dig what we're trying to deals were trying to be. Struck when he was reaching across the aisle but I find, it strange, that President Trump has been able to reach across the aisle if you. Will sit down with the dictator of North Korea Kim Jong and. Try to strike a deal over them getting rid of their nukes we've, seen President Trump try to have dialogue. With bladder MIR Putin we've seen President Trump Strike a deal with Mexico today. Trying to get Canada to strike a deal having the e strike. A deal over tariffs But the one group does. Not willing to sit down with President Trump Strike a deal Are democrats Democrats walked away when President Trump try to strike a deal on DACA Democrats refused to participate in the tax cuts that have led to just our economy to. Go on super boost And of course Democrats Refuse to deal with the president when they came to repeal and replacing ObamaCare now you see how even generous I am in this because I'm not even calling in the never Trumpers I not not today So if you are watching, all of this television, all of the praise it all of the from the from the left from the, lens of the world the MSNBC's the ABC CBS in all. Of the alphabet soups I think they're dealing in hypocrisy The very. Things that they're using to praise Into acknowledge the passing of Senator John McCain they're using, to bash our current president over the head It's the, same thing that's happening you have many many people especially in the great state of Arizona? She's you have you have you have candidates who have Canceled campaigning. For a, few days they're. Putting things on hold their. Stopping things out of out of. Deference out of, respect for, Senator John McCain that's something I don't. Quite frankly. I don't understand we have a primary tomorrow We, are in the political season. The stakes are high but I do understand this sentiment in like if I remember correctly that's something that Senator John. McCain did went back in two thousand eight when he was campaigning against Obama there was a financial crisis he. Suspended the campaign to. Go back, to Washington DC. And deal with that issue I guess that that's a sort of a a deference But this it's to, watch the reaction the overwhelming reaction from the mainstream media the outpouring of love and respect for Senator McCain from the. Very people, who accused him, of all kinds of craziness Julia minute. Wait a minute accused him of the very same, things there are accusing President Trump today is mind blowing The hypocrisy to me is mind blowing I. Want to point you to a pulse I'm gonna post this up on on. My page with us from grassroots partners this is a c q, our friend Kostyantyn, Courard has a wonderful and I mean wonderful piece, up is called praying for John McCain and he talks about some of the things I've been. Seen today from the media as well, but he breaks down the different camps. Different views that people would about views, people had about a Senator John McCain and it's overriding theme is. Simply this now is not the time Now the time This is the time for us to remember the life of someone who. Was very influential someone who represented the great. State of Arizona Someone who's passing is being mourned by by. Millions and I will not step on that This time will be booby be for them but I will continue to defend the president of the United States against the onslaught of of progressive craziness because the long Nizer out And at four twenty I have a I have an illustration of what I'm talking, about here where the media even in the, death of John McCain will use the things he's done in the past to try to further damage conservatives fourteen minutes after the hour You are listening to the news talk five fifty KFYI time for east side west.

Wanna give you final thoughts but also ask what you're going to be working on for today. We're gonna be talking a lot about John McCain, Mark Salter his co author, close friend is going to join us and Mark wrote over the weekend that John McCain was a romantic about his causes, but a cynic about the world and recollect what it was like to go to memoir and meet three released prisoners who had been tortured and abused and John McCain met with them in twenty seven and the way he related to people around the world who were victims human rights victims, it's such a part of that legacy something. We don't hear very much anymore from Capitol Hill. So we'll be talking a lot about that. And of course, about the president of the polling that shows that the president is getting more strength from his supporters despite in the past week, despite what happened with Michael cone and Paul Manafort the polls are up.

These people have you seen these people. You know what crazy is. I know all about crazies. These weren't crazy. So he insulted me and he insulted everybody in that room. And I said, somebody should run against John McCain, who has been in my opinion, not so hot and I supported him. I supported him for president. I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost. He let us down, but you know, he lost. So never liked him as much after that because I don't like. But Frank, Frank, let me get to. He hit me. He's war here. He's a war hero enough years. He's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to does. Don't Trump even apology. No, I don't think so. But I think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict would Mr. Trump said that he prefers to be with people who were not captured the great honor my life. It was to serve in the company of heroes. I'm not if you go, but those who were my senior ranking officers, people cream day congressional medal of honor when those inspired us to do things that we otherwise wouldn't have been capable of doing who the real heroes fifty, five thousand names that are down on the wall in grave in black granite, and I stopped by some times early in the morning and win.

"Coming back through the Cold War and Ronald Reagan, and it really is quite striking that there is so much waffling on the Russian threat right now. Richard Haass that there was a consistency. He was critical of Brock Obama for not being tough enough on Russia at times critical of George W Bush for not being tough enough on Russia, but. The only difference between McCain's criticisms then and over the past year was then he was joined by fellow Republican senators who also saw the importance of holding the line against Putin's expansionism now. So many of those Republicans grew silent, which is why John McCain's voice was all the more necessary in the age of Trump. In many ways, John McCain represents the main tradition of American foreign policy. And as you were suggesting, what's so worrisome or bizarre, choose whatever word you want about this moment is the mainstream in many cases has been relegated to being outsiders or minority, but we have in some ways what I would describe as the most radical foreign policy of any far of any American president. Now since Harry, Truman, John McCain was firmly in the Truman through Reagan through George Bush the senior and so. Fourth tradition, very internationalised, supporting allies, working through international institutions from working closest with with democratic countries, tough towards Russia, worried, look slightly about China, and suddenly we have something extraordinarily different than the fact that it stands out the telling and one of the worrying things at last year's, whether it's foreign policy or anything else is where is the congress. This is supposed to be the classroom American foreign policy holding hearings challenging the president when they disagree raining them in providing resources where they think is necessary. And all too often that the congress has been been missing an action. Jon Meacham notice better than anybody. We used to speak about the imperial presidency office lesson junior and other historians used to worry about the accumulation concentration of power in the hands of the presidency when it comes to foreign policy. Well, guess what? We still got it. And if anything it's stronger than ever and it's because they weren't another people enough people like John McCain, essentially challenge challenging presidential perogatives when the president was driving the train off the tracks. Let's go to the White House. Now, NBC news Pentagon correspondent Hans Nichols is with us also in Washington, former NATO supreme allied commander retired, four story at navy Admiral, James Savita. He's chief international security diplomacy analysts NBC news and MSNBC and an operating executive at the core Lyle group Hans. Let's start with you. Give us the news over the weekend regarding with Korea. Well, there's an incredible shift on Friday from the president cancelling that trip. While Mike Pompeo, the secretary state was planning to head to North Korea, took a lot of people by surprise. The Pentagon didn't have any advanced warning about at least the officials we talked to. So there is there big changes going on there. It's uncertain. Just what's driving this. The president blame China on trade. But when you talk to. And then violating the sanctions. But there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of evidence that China has radically changed their behavior in regards to trade with North Korea? Yeah, there might be some softening along the border with a few truck transfers, but nothing tectonic, Joe, Joe just real quickly on on McCain here at the White House. It doesn't appear that they're in mourning any longer. I just checked the flag. It's not hats half-staff today. The flag here at the White House was lowered yesterday today to peers to be still up. Dawn has just broken, so sometimes they lower bring it down at night, but not a flights on it. And you contrast that with the congress on Capitol Hill, it's still is half staff. So it looks like Senator John McCain only getting a pass staff for one day here at the White House. Joe. Admirals ravidas. We're, we're past being surprised by anything that Donald Trump does. Let's talk instead about character and John McCain of fellow navy man. Before we get into North Korea, give us your thoughts on the life and the legacy of great man huge loss for the nation as we've been discussing. But if I may an enormous loss for the US navy, son and grandson of four star admirals really part of the naval air stock recy- served so bravely in Vietnam, but what we treasure about John McCain or the memories of him as the rebel with a cause, particularly when he was a midshipman at the naval academy, he went over.

"But you're right, and the thing about it. Richard is over the weekend. There have been reports that President Trump. Nixed the idea of an official statement and instead tweeted something about the family without mentioning Senator McCain. Specifically, he signed the defense appropriations Bill named after John McCain last week without mentioning him specifically. And I think it's a measure of John McCain and his role in his stature in American life that you cannot compare nor contrast the size of both men. I mean, the president of the United States. So small Senator McCain, so huge in our lives in now in our memories to reactions, one is whenever you Patty, whenever you act small, the only person that gets diminished his yourself and the president accomplish that in spades, this week, and it was a moment for graciousness moment to reach out and he didn't. It's a stain on his character. In the case of Senator McCain, I've known him for decades. Two things. One is throwback. The idea, here's a Republican who's hanging out with Democrats. Here's a politician says unpolitical, thanks. It was reminded when we had real people a standing and stature walking the halls of the Senate. He's one of the big guys in the Senate people we grew up with. There's a lot of them anymore. And John McCain was one of them. It's also interesting to see the European and international reaction. People like macro reaching out to say public things, McCain represented an era of Atlanticism that stretches back to FDR and World War Two goes through the Cold War in the post Cold War period. He was one of the leading advocates of NATO enlargment of reaching out to these newly independent states of basically saying American foreign policy has to be about strategy, but we've also got to be about values and principal in democracy. It is striking the statements engine mccrone from Germany in Great Britain and nothing. From the Oval Office really know, and it's. Just when you think you lost the ability to shake your head anymore. Things like this happen and you basically, you can't believe what it is you're seeing in this case, you're not seeing that. You know, caddy it's very interesting. You see the comments from Justin Trudeau talking about Senator John McCain, being an American patriot and a hero who sacrifices for his country and a lifetime of public service where an inspiration to millions Canadians join Americans tonight in celebrating his life and mourning his passing. And of course. Justin Trudeau and Canadians join Americans except of course, for Donald Trump and I must say some former members, some members of my former party who just acted Hoernle and the time of John McCain's death. So apparrently that I don't want to even mention their name on this show because they are beneath contempt and you really do at the end of the day, you wonder who raised them and what are those people thinking of them now that they would kick around a man in his last twenty four to forty eight hours while he was dying. But speaking of character, I wanted to read you a tweet from General Michael Hayden who talked about John McCain's character and general Hayden and John McCain. We're not on the same. Side on many things. And of course, John McCain especially talked about when we talk about values, he talked about what America should and shouldn't do war. He's talking about waterboarding torture. Of course. We all remember that. We had some crosswords about that ourselves, but General Michael Hayden. Said, while I was at the CIA Senator, John McCain, ripped me a new one on several occasions, but not once. Did he think I shouldn't have a security clearance? Go figure rest in peace, American hero. And I think that's the greatest legacy that here you have some of the most liberal candidates in America right now who represent the far progressive left, remembering John McCain, positively. You have. Michael Hayden and others who John McCain ripta shreds. Because of policy differences coming out, calling him an American hero. This is a man that people loved and respected and admired even after engaging in the toughest of political fights because they knew that it was coming from his heart and not. For cheap. Political gain? Yeah, you have to wonder whether the people down in Arizona, you refer to them obliquely just a moment ago. Some of those people in the White House who have spoken out against John McCain over the course of the.

"You for your strength at a time when this Republic needs at the most. Thank you and make. It's not too late. John mccain. Oh my God. This morning, we remember John McCain is humor. His leadership and his lifetime of service to the United States of America, a country that the Senator said, he learned a love while being a prisoner in another country. Welcome to morning Joe on this Monday, August twenty. Seventh. And we've brought in a lot of people to talk about the legacy and life of Senator John McCain. We've MSNBC contributor Mike barnicle president council in foreign relations. Richard Haass, NBC news, chief foreign affairs correspondent and a host of Andrea Mitchell reports, Andrew Mitchell, Washington anchor for BBC world news America. Katty Kay and historian, and the author of soul of America and Rogers professor of the presence. He'd Vanderbilt University. Jon Meacham meek, morning off willy will also be back later this week and. There's so many Jon Meacham you go through all the paradoxes. All the all the conflicts that are internal, the United States of America and its greatness. And you talk about always arguing towards. Ever upward. And our trajectories civilization, John McCain had some conflicts. He had some contradictions. He had sharp elbows. He had sharp edges and yet in all of my years, dealing with the man. It made me love him even more even when I knew at times when he loaded me, he he was a straight shooter. He spoke his mind and he was exactly what America needed not only in the nineteen sixties in Vietnam, the courage that he showed the extrordinary strength showed, but also the age of Trump a man who just didn't give a damn about an errant tweet from a blustery president because he had already been through hell and back and he could put up with it. Absolutely. He is the Greek said, character is destiny and his character as a young man, both before his captivity and afterward, we're bore those salient elements that you just described. Here's a young man who I think graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at Annapolis. And I think as he wants put it rarely met members of the opposite sex or for minted liquid that he did not enjoy, I think was was one way he framed it. And then he's tempered and shaped in that cauldron of captivity in Vietnam and emerges as at once Reverend about America and irreverent about himself. And that is a powerful combination. And I think that we all benefited from it. He called them as he saw them. He defies easy, ideological categorization at, I think one of the reasons so many people have been so affected by this is we realize that in this tribal moment, we've lost someone who was willing to look at an issue, look at a question and just tell you what he thought damn the consequences. And that's, you know, might offered. Yeah. Certainly did. And Mike, very few would have guessed that. John McCain would have served his country become really the most prominent American public figure of the past fifty years that didn't serve as president from that start that Jon Meacham said he was always filled with surprises. He wasn't considered to be a serious student and you know, he was Pensacola, he went through Pensacola. Everybody had a story about John McCain, crawling onto their porch, the middle of the night and leaving their porch in the early morning while he was in flight training and our time just. But it's so fascinating that he was seen as this party boy. Then he goes to Vietnam. He gets shot down. He's given an opportunity to leave because they find out, oh my God. This this, this, this POW's father is one of the top admiral's will let him go, McCain refuses to go. He stays with his band of brothers while he's getting beaten unmercifully to appoint that, he'll never be able to raise his arms over his shoulders for the rest of his life character that no one saw coming character like we see..

"The powerful backing of American Express don't do business without it. Schivonne another admirable trait. Many point to in talking about John McCain, whether they're Republicans or not, is his willingness to admit mistakes. And that's something he's done publicly several times over the course of his career. This is a guy who's honest with himself and frequently honest with the public. So one of those was when he was coaxed into making a false confession when he was in North Vietnam, it was something he felt terrible about. He was very honest about his failings when it came to the Keating five scandal, that banking intervention, we talked about. He was also to a degree honest about his personal life. His first marriage had failed when he got home from the war he was changed. His first wife was changed. She'd been in a horrible accident that left her unable to walk in the marriage came apart. He apologized for that and then blamed himself for that. He. Also could be open about some of the handwringing that he experienced when it came to the Iraq war. He had voted in favor of the Iraq war, which as we all know was under it into based on faulty information. He had a sense that in supporting the military which he did very strongly. It did put soldiers lives at risk. So there are a lot of instances in which he, you could see him sort of mentally hanging his head in realizing he hadn't lived up to his own standards, although that certainly what he was aiming for a Chaban I wanna talk about one of the last votes McCain made as a Senator, and this was after returning to the Senate against his doctor's advice, and it was to cast a no vote against Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. I'm curious for those who cover Washington politics. What was that moment like to see a Republican book his own party, like that guess was an absolutely defining moment, and you could literally feel the electricity in the air from the moment he walked into the Senate floor when he refers. Used to say how he was going to vote to watching him stand in a cluster with Susan Collins at Lisa Murkowski as the entire Republican party looked his way wondering if he was going to bring down one of their stigma charcoals. And then that that down that I conduct thumbs down as Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell crossed his arms and frowns at him was just a remarkable and defining moment in the Senate and that willingness to defy his own party certainly caught the attention of President. Donald Trump who McCain vocally disagreed with on more than one occasion. Absolutely. I, Donald Trump has been very tough on Senator McCain and Senator McCain gave it right back it. He was not cowed by Donald Trump, which is something very different from how a lot of other Republicans handle the president. Other Republicans would go quiet. Other Republicans have made excuses for Donald Trump. John McCain was having absolutely none of that. And he used many, many opportunities. To come back Donald Trump to accuse him of things like spurious, half-baked nationalism, and to really stand up for the values of a particular wing of the Republican party Schivonne as we remember Senator John McCain, what have you been hearing from colleagues fellow lawmakers on the hill about his legacy. First of all, lawmakers are absolutely crushed. What people feel is that John McCain was one of a kind that his absence leaves a huge void in the Senate, partly because of his moral fortitude on his toughness, partly because he was so much fun. He had an incredible sense of humor. He risked a joke in an environment in which a lot of people are terrified to make jokes because they're afraid of the political consequences. And so it's a loss for his colleagues on so many levels. McCain was also asked a few times how he'd like to be remembered, and I find it so interesting that he chose to people from opposite ends of the political spectrum to deliver his. You'll. Oh, jeez. His one time opponent, former President, Barack Obama and former President, George W Bush in a way making a statement about reaching across the aisle even in death. Absolutely. He was making a statement about bipartisanship and it's worth noting that that was the subject of really his final major speech on the Senate floor. He said, we have to work together..

"I diagnosed in July of twenty seventeen joining us now from Washington to talk about McCain's life and legacy is Wall Street Journal reporter, Chevron Hughes Chevron, as you write in your piece for the Wall Street Journal McCain's life was in many ways a life that defied the odds and there are elements. Certainly, here that have become legendary. He came from a navy family and during the Vietnam war was captured and spent five and a half years in prison, undergoing torture and conditions. Most of us cannot imagine. Can you tell us a little bit about that experience and how it came to share. His views and his life. That experience was one of the defining experiences of his life. It taught him how to rely on other people. He was confined in solitary confinement, and so the way prisoners would communicate with each other was through. They had a special code. They were tapping along the walls. It taught him a lot of moral fortitude. The North Vietnamese knew that his father was a very prominent Admiral and they tried to coax him into early release in McCain refused because he was convinced that it would have been terrible for morale. If someone who was shot down last or later as Ted ended up getting out earlier and cutting in line, it also taught him a lot about torture and the reasons why torture might not be a good idea. And that was a theme that would come up again and again, particularly after September eleventh. And of course, he very vocally opposed towards her and the practice of waterboarding when McCain was freed in nineteen Seventy-three. Soon after returning to the US. Began his life in congress, winning a house seat and in nineteen Eighty-six winning the Senate seat vacated by Barry Goldwater. He had some political setbacks to though including his involvement in the Keating five. Can you tell us about that experience and how it came to shape his politics thereafter, don't experience to me is when he starts seriously. Thinking about the role of money in politics, Charles Keating was a very prominent banker and John McCain among other senators had intervened on behalf of Mr. Keating with federal banking regulators, and it turned out that that perhaps not such a great idea because the Mr. Keating's banking business wasn't stable. It went belly up and ended up costing the government several billion dollars. Although mister Cain was reprimanded for showing poor judgment. He didn't suffer the punishment that some of the other senators had, but it left him filled with enormous shame and it was something that if he even thought about it for a moment. He could be taken back instantly to that second where he felt he had really let the public down. And so what you see later on is him mount very strong effort in favor of campaign finance reform, trying to really think hard about the role of money in politics, getting to another milestone in his life by two thousand. He had launched a bid for the GOP presidential nomination. And this is where we also see his willingness to challenge the ideas of his own party. That bid was ultimately unsuccessful, but in a way, set him up for the next time around in two thousand eight when he challenged Barack Obama. And there are moments during this campaign that people point to as emblematic of McCain's character, particularly in those cases where he defended Obama his opponent against false claims, that Obama was a Muslim and not born in the United States. So there are really two separate campaigns. We're talking about here. One is in two thousand when he was absolutely the under dog. He wrote around in a bus called the straight, talk express. He took hour after hour of questions from reporters. And really cast himself as an authentic open. Tell like it is different type of candidate later on in two thousand eight. He ran what a lot of people considered to be a much more conventional campaign, but there were moments when he really was swimming against the tide. And one of those was when there's a particular video that encapsulates what people mean when they talk about this campaign, someone said that they thought Barack Obama was a Muslim and John McCain in front of the cameras looks at her and says, no, ma'am. No, ma'am. He's just someone who happens to have different views than I have, but he's not a Muslim. And that was just a huge act because it really stood against what a lot of people in the Republican party felt. And even if it cost him the election,.

"Senator John McCain is controversial. Not not in my house I think John, McCain is of course in the news is just taught about he, has been battling A particularly insidious and deadly form of brain cancer for over a year and underscoring just, what an awful diseases, is his family's announcing today that it made the decision to end medical treatment which is a condition, that if you've ever dealt with somebody close to you who said the battle. Cancer inevitably in many cases it. Gets to that point where you just decides that the, treatments aren't working anymore and they're having and it's. Just an adverse impact and there's just nothing more. To be gained, and then you, make that decision and I don't. Know what this means for Senator McCain other than the fact that it's typically a. Decision you make one nears. The end of his life, but you, know the family said we're gonna be discontinuing medical treatment I One of the things that. Candidly I always had an issue I've had a lot of issues during. The two thousand sixteen presidential campaign the some of the things, that then candidate Trump said and and. I will be honest with you. His decision to attack John McCain I understand the John McCain is a source has has been over the, years on a particular issue here or, there has been a source of I. Don't know consternation for for Republicans John McCain's always been, somewhat of a of a maverick and I certainly didn't agree with him on all the things he did by. By no stretch of the imagination but I don't know that I agree with anybody and. All the things that they do but I I remember when when President Trump during the course of the campaign, decided to respond to punch back, go, after Senator McCain by saying well I don't know why everybody refers to him. As a, war hero war hero of course John McCain served several. Years in Vietnamese prisoner of war After having his, plane, shot down and President Trump says to me heroes are the ones that don't. Get shot, down or words that effect I thought, that was disgraceful I just I did and especially I think it would have been stressful for anybody but. Especially disgraceful for somebody like, President Trump who avoided, you know used, various connections and stuff to avoid having to serve in the military himself to. Challenge Senator McCain service I thought it was appalling which isn't to say like I. Said, I understand. There's all sorts of. Political disagreements that are out there and all and I understand that Senator McCain had taken. Positions and wasn't a fan of Donald Trump's vice versa I. Get all that but I thought that was a particularly appalling thing to say and it's it to me it showed that Donald Trump the. Candidate really, had no filter and it's one of the, reasons why I, candidly hope that Donald Trump the president would be able. To restrain some of those those things and unfortunately I think that hasn't worked out that way, but John McCain who I consider at least to be an American hero. And that's that is acknowledging That I think he has been wrong on some issues. He has been obstinate on some issues I consider him to be an American hero and this this news extremely unfortunate but unfortunately at the. Same time, relatively predictable it is interesting to me one, of the questions, matter of fact several people emails about what happened if. At this point in time Given the, dire nascent nature of the, prognosis if Senator McCain. Were to now step down or if he were to. Pass away you know what happens to that seat in the simple answer is that the Republican governor. Of Arizona, gets to appoint a replacement for him that replacement whoever that is chosen would then serve until, the next general election not in Arizona knocked the one. In November but the next one and that would be to, fill out Senator McCain's term so whoever gets appointed would take off his. Pretty much immediately and would be there. For a while interestingly enough it does get complicated if the governor, and the. Governor of, Arizona Republican has said, that he's, he has no interest in. Appointing himself to that. Seat if the, governor of Arizona were to appoint a congressman well then the way The law works if you'd have to have, a special election to fill that congressman seat pretty quickly but if you appointed somebody, other than a congressman of, there wouldn't be an. Elect there wouldn't be an election in Arizona for a. While but it's a little bit complicated but the bottom line. Is for people wondering what happens if. Senator McCain, rather to step down or pass away what happens in the simple answer is you have a, Republican governor Zona who will appoint Senator McCain's replacement who. Will then serve for the foreseeable future until the next scheduled, general election which So that person would be voting for example on if Senator McCain were to, decide that, he was going to step down effective today the governor makes, an appointment next week that person would then be there for the hearings on judge cavenaugh for example so that that's that's. Where all plays into it but you only get too caught up with the politics because again I understand well somewhat controversial figure I think John McCain. Is is a great American I just I just do he was of course the. Republican standard bearer in two thousand eight which was a, year that given the ascendancy of. Barack Obama and the fact that Republicans were coming off you know eight, years of President Bush and the fact. That you know Democrats were completely mobilized to try to do away with any remnants of the Bush administration that that two thousand eight campaign I think we've pretty much probably doomed from, star But I thought he ran think, you ran a strong campaign I think he's been a solid conservative standard bearer again acknowledging some well I, don't know, some decisions that I don't think I would have made like, McCain Feingold campaign finance and things like but John McCain the announcement today that they are no longer going to be providing. Medical treatment for his particularly insidious type of cancer Whatever that means moving forward. You know tough, to say but not good, news I think everybody's prayers should be the Senator McCain and. With his family moving forward all, right when we come, back we're..

"It is the we'd thing against trump he does have that peculiar genius for turning his oppositions a strength against them well that's the interesting thing about the trump administration so far is that some at the strongest and most persuasive an opposition has actually come from his own side and much of it from senator john mccain and and so trump is in the rather strange position of facing opposition from a congress which is actually dominated by his party and a bomber for a long time didn't have that luxury which is why he was he we which is why he was using these executive orders um but i'm not sure that i completely agree with victor actually about this i'm not sure how how wise eta is your however prince pulled uh barrack obama may come across i'm not show that it is a good idea to breach the convention that the retired president shouldn't speak out on matters pertaining to his successor and i think it took you know i know that term rich nixon resigned in ah a degree of two disgrace an but it took a very very long time before he as it were reappeared on the public platform an unnamed exclusively to talk about foreign policy and i sort of thing kate would be more in keeping really if barak obama said a little bit less final thoughts on this earth victory there will of course be enormous demonstrations across the united states against this most of which are spurt donald trump on the republican party will ignore but there they will be more because there has been already significant pushback.
