Actual AP Tweet: ‘Navy SEAL killed in Iraq went to school in Arizona and was to close to disgraced grandfather Charles H. Keating Jr.’

Forget the horrible grammar and ask why on earth do they have to trash this hero by mentioning his grandfather, who hasn’t been noteworthy for 25 years?


Odd how they don’t point out most of the people Charles Keating gave money to were Democrats.

The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators – Alan Cranston (Democrat of California), Dennis DeConcini (Democrat of Arizona), John Glenn (Democrat of Ohio), John McCain (Republican of Arizona), and Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (Democrat of Michigan) – were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB). The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln.

Whatever the case, this is a disgrace.

    Oh, come on! You known damn well that the leftist media is never going to allow anyone in the military to be portrayed as a hero. The media is probably right this moment searching for some ISIS sympathizer to accuse him of war crimes/sarc.

    Just another example of people embarrassed at who they are and why they will never be of the character of this man, so they result to things like this…..Those that can, do, those that can’t, work for AP..
