Pro-Trump author: John McCain was secretly executed by a military tribunal

When you hear the “prophecies” disseminated by the “Firefighter Prophet” Mark Taylor, you’d probably assume that his particular brand of religious fanaticism is too nutty even for far-right evangelical Christian circles. That apparently isn’t the case, considering that the evangelical Christian college Liberty University is making a movie about him.

Aside from disseminating conspiracy theories and apocalyptic predictions on the internet and on Jim Bakker’s TV show, Taylor fancies himself as a writer. His profile reached the next level after he penned a book titled “The Trump Prophecies: The Astonishing True Story Of The Man Who Saw Tomorrow… And What He Says Is Coming Next” after Trump was elected in 2016.

Among Taylor’s claims are: Trump will reveal cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s if he’s reelected; anti-Trump forces will create hurricanes to suppress the midterm voter turnout; God is using Trump to put Obama and Hillary in jail for treason; the Illuminati sent the Texas and Florida hurricanes to punish Trump voters … the list goes on.

To continually churn out this kind of insanity and still retain a following is quite a feat, and it’s giving Taylor an excuse to be more brazen with each bit of *insight* he shares. His latest claim is no exception. During an appearance on The Sharpening Report last week, he declared that John McCain’s recent death was not from brain cancer, but from an execution ordered by a military tribunal.

“We both know that John McCain was executed under military tribunals,” Taylor told the show’s host in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch.

According to Taylor, liberals don’t oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court because of his suspected opposition to abortion; they’re opposing him because they’re worried he’ll make military tribunals a regular thing.

“They’re trying to disguise it that it’s abortion that they’re worried about; that’s not what they’re worried about,” he said. “They want a solid 5-4 vote for military tribunals … It’s the military tribunals [they’re worried about] because they know it’s going to cost them lives and they’re going to be executed.”

“When you watched John McCain’s funeral and you saw the entire cabal right there in one spot,” Taylor continued. “These people weren’t smiling. They knew John McCain was a prophetic marker in time that we have moved from judgment to justice is now being served. Period. And they know it and they know that if they don’t do something to stop this, they’re next.”

“John McCain was the number three guy—you’ve got Barack Obama being number one, Hillary Clinton being number two, and John McCain being number three. So if they can take down the head of ISIS, John McCain, the number three guy out of all of this, they know they’re next. That’s why they’re scared to death, that’s why they’re screaming.”
