There is an old adage that, for the most part, has proven itself to be true: "Birds of a feather flock together." In other words, one can discern much about a person by the company he or she keeps. Accordingly, here is a sample of the quirky company of Senator John McCain.
As Jerome Corsi recently reported, John McCain has long enjoyed sizeable funding from the ultraliberal gazillionaire George Soros, and from liberal Massachusetts Senator John Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry. (See the report at http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=56177 )
Question: Why would ultraliberals such as Soros and Kerry give so much money to a "conservative" Republican? Answer: They know that McCain is anything but a conservative. In fact, McCain is so liberal, he actually discussed becoming John Kerry's Vice Presidential running mate on the Democratic ticket in 2004.
Dr. Corsi also reported the fact that McCain has chosen Juan Hernandez as his Hispanic outreach director. A former Mexican government official, Hernandez is a man who openly advances a "Mexico first" policy everywhere he goes.
Corsi wrote, "In an appearance on ABC's Nightline in 2001, Hernandez said, referring to Mexican immigrants in the U.S., 'I want the third generation, the seventh generation, I want them all to think "Mexico first.""' Neither John McCain nor any of his spokesmen have repudiated Hernandez' sentiments.
(See Dr. Corsi's report at http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=59890 )
Is it any surprise, therefore, that John McCain has agreed to speak at the upcoming annual conference of La Raza ("The Race")? As most readers probably know, behind La Raza is a radical Hispanic group that advocates a militant "reconquista" of the Southwestern United States.
John McCain is also known to have surrounded himself with corporate lobbyists, who, for all intents and purposes, seek only the success of their international corporation employers, not any "conservative" principle.
Noted columnist Cliff Kincaid recently wrote, "Not all conservatives thought the [New York] Times was off-base in going after McCain's ties to lobbyists. These activists are angry that McCain is surrounded by lobbyists who put corporate interests ahead of conservative interests. They note, for example, that it has been impossible to get McCain to firmly commit to opposing the U.N.'s Law of the Sea Treaty. McCain has also indicated support for the International Criminal Court."

In addition, World Net Daily recently reported that McCain's family fortune (via his current wife) is tainted with connections to organized crime. The WND report begins by saying, "John McCain's personal fortune traces back to organized crime in Arizona, through his father-in-law, according to a report published by a multi-news agency team called Investigative Reporters and Editors Inc."

In addition, a pro-abortion group has endorsed the now self-touted "pro-life" candidacy of John McCain. "The Republicans for Choice Political Action Committee decided that McCain was the best candidate to make the Republican Party pro-choice following Rudy Giuliani's withdrawal from the race, reported CNS News today."

And if all of the above is not enough, "Two of Sen. John McCain's top advisors and fundraisers are among several Republican and Democratic presidential campaign officials whose lobbying firms have been paid more than $15 million by foreign governments since 2005.
"The firms of McCain senior advisor Charlie Black, who until recently was the chairman of Washington-based BKSH & Associates, and campaign co-chairman Thomas G. Loeffler, who heads the Loeffler Group in San Antonio, received millions of dollars lobbying the White House, Congress and others as agents of nearly a dozen foreign clients in recent years . . ." As it turns out, Red China and Mexico are the top employers. (Source: The Washington Times.

If it is true that "a man is known by the company he keeps," what does this say about Senator John McCain?

Plus, I do not hesitate to state that the only national party that is 100% pro-life, that is committed to securing our borders against illegal immigration, and that is dedicated to preserving our nation's sovereignty and independence by opposing NAFTA, CAFTA, and the burgeoning North American Union is the Constitution Party.
