Hot headed Arizona Senator John McCain is once again showing why he belongs in a nursing home rather than running the Senate Armed Services Committee. Old blood and guts followed up his Sunday morning McNews show diatribe where he called for U.S. troops to be sent back to Iraq with a tirade against world soccer body FIFA. McCain is just braying like the senile, cantankerous old fart that he is on the subject of the day just like grandpa parked in front of the TV crapping in his adult diaper.
Right now that subject happens to be the Obama regime’s Team America World Police style raid on a posh Zurich hotel. The new Attorney General Loretta Lynch, following in the footsteps of Eric “crime stopper” Holder, preened and strutted for the cameras after the busting of several FIFA officials on corruption charges. Yet Lynch gave no explanation as to why not one of the Wall Street crooks and gamblers who fleeced taxpayers out of billions has never been indicted – not that anyone bothered to ask the question.
God forbid that Lynch hog too much of the media attention as McCain is in the early stages of wrestling the spotlight away with his latest insane foreign policy demand. Joining America’s most prominent crank is Democrat Senator Robert Menendez who is an expert on corruption, himself having been recently indicted on influence peddling charges. Menendez was popped over accepting gifts from a wealthy Florida backer including lavish hotel suites where the New Jersey Senator – notorious for his taste for young tail – could frolic in the buff in a “limestone bath with soaking tub and enclosed rain shower”. McCain, for those who happen to have long memories knows a thing or two about graft himself having been involved in the late 1980s Keating Five savings and loan scandal.
CNN reports on the dual-pronged attack in the story “Menendez: FIFA probes reinforce Russia 2018 concerns”:
Sen. Bob Menendez said on Wednesday that a pair of corruption probes into FIFA, the international soccer federation in charge of the World Cup, reinforced his concerns about the awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Russia.
Menendez, along with Sen. John McCain, requested on Tuesday that the FIFA Congress deny President Sepp Blatter a fifth term because of Russia’s international transgressions. Their letter was sent to the soccer governing body just hours before Swiss agents raided the group’s Zurich headquarters and U.S. officials unsealed a 47-count indictment stemming from their own investigation.
“I have long been concerned about FIFA’s selection of Russia and today’s announcement only underscores the need for FIFA to elect a president who will not only uphold FIFA’s values, but will ensure FIFA does not reward countries that do not uphold these values as well,” according to a statement from Menendez.
FIFA officials are alleged to have accepted bribes in the awarding of World Cups, highly coveted events that spark fierce competition among global leaders. Russia was awarded the 2018 World Cup and Qatar won the 2022 World Cup.
An interesting footnote to the FIFA fracas comes courtesy of a Daily Beast story that details Bill Clinton’s dances with the FIFA devils. The story is entitled “Corrupt FIFA Has Clinton Foundation Ties; World Cup Host Qatar Gave Millions” from which I excerpt the following:
The Clinton global charity has received between $50,000 and $100,000 from soccer’s governing body and has partnered with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association on several occasions, according to donor listings on the foundation’s website.
Several top FIFA executives were arrested Wednesday in Zurich and face corruption charges stretching back two decades, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Involvement with the embattled body extends beyond the foundation to Bill Clinton himself. The former president was an honorary chairman of the bid committee put together to promote the United States as a possible host nation for the 2018 or 2022 World Cup.
When the U.S. lost the 2022 bid to Qatar, Clinton was rumored to be so upset he shattered a mirror.
But apparently Qatar tried to make it up to him.
The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee, partnering with the State of Qatar, “committed to utilizing its research and development for sustainable infrastructure at the 2022 FIFA World Cup to improve food security in Qatar, the Middle East, and other arid and water-stressed regions throughout the world,” according to the Clinton Foundation website.
The cost of the two-year project is not listed on the Clinton Foundation website, but the Qatar 2022 committee gave the foundation between $250,000 and $500,000 in 2014 and the State of Qatar gave between $1 million and $5 million in previous, unspecified years.
Funny how the names of all of these corrupt politicians, both foreign and domestic always keep popping up isn’t it?
The call for pulling the World Cup out of Russia has infuriated the hated Vladimir Putin who is crying foul and in this case he may have a point. McCain has had a bug up his ass toward the Rooskies for decades and especially since Putin’s infamous New York Times editorial back on September 11, 2013. The old coot has been flogging the donkey over pulling the World Cup since last year too. Menendez’s intent is pretty easy to see in that it throws out a shovelful of bloody red meat to his defenders as well as gets the media to stop focusing on his own corruption problems. It is however more than a bit curious that the glimmer twins just wrote a blistering letter to FIFA just before the Zurich raid. Were they tipped off by an Obama regime insider? If so that doesn’t say much about the integrity of information security.
It’s a hoot to see all of the entrenched parasites in Washington and their media lackeys getting so much play out of a freaking soccer scandal. Kicking FIFA boss Sepp Blatter in the balls is a win-win situation for the slugs who frequent the White House Correspondent’s Dinner every year. They not only get to suck up to Obama by singing the praises of Loretta Lynch but don’t risk pissing off corporate sponsors, some of which are the same big banks guilty of wrecking the economy.
Way too much fuss about soccer, a sport that Americans aren’t exactly enamored with because at its best it is about as slow and sloppy as watching old people f*ck. Why deprive Russia of such an enthralling and entertaining event? Let them keep it and let McCain join Putin in his luxury suite where both of those whackos can exchange dry hand jobs with each other.
