Yes, an ‘over-reach’

After the fall of the Soviet Union, neoconservatives were among the first to proclaim the joys, the challenges and the opportunities of a “unipolar world.” The “center” of world power was now the United States, Charles Krauthammer wrote in a special 1990-91 issue of Foreign Affairs. The United States, he said, was “the only country with the military, diplomatic, political and economic assets to be a decisive player in any conflict in whatever part of the world it chooses to involve itself.”
As provocative as Krauthammer’s essay was, the most distinctive neocon anthem appeared in the July/August 1996 issue of Foreign Affairs.
William Kristol and Robert Kagan said that the United States had the duty and the power to, in effect, police the world: “American hegemony is the only reliable defense against a breakdown of peace and international order. The appropriate goal of American foreign policy, therefore, is to preserve that hegemony as far into the future as possible.”

Turkey Has Destroyed Russia’s Hope Of Western Cooperation

If the attack was cleared with Washington, was Obama bypassed by the neocons who control his government, or is Obama himself complicit? Clearly the neoconservatives are disturbed by the French president’s call for unity with Russia against ISIL and easily could have used their connections to Turkey to stage an event that Washington can use to prevent cooperation with Russia.

Neocons Call for Invading Syria

Neocon presidential aspirant Senator Lindsey Graham is part of Washington’s lunatic fringe. He urges an American-led regional ground force invasion of Syria, adding: “Under no circumstances would I work with (Putin) and the Iranians regarding Syria if the price to fight ISIL (is) to keep (Assad) in power.”

He equates ISIS with Nazi Germany and Assad with imperial Japan, claiming “(i)f you don’t fight Syria, Lebanon and Jordan are going to fall…(Y)ou can never fix Iraq, (and) they’re going to hit us here at home. (It’s almost) 100 percent certain.”

Neocons Make Rubio Their Favorite

“We’ll be fine.” That’s what neoconservative scion William Kristol told Beltway insiders on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about the prospect of Donald Trump winning the GOP nomination.

Although he was initially warm to Trump’s candidacy, Kristol quickly cooled during the “Summer of Trump” as the GOP’s surprise frontrunner began piling up insults and, more importantly, as he began piling-on the disastrous foreign policy legacy of President George W. Bush. Trump’s barrages against the Iraq War on the stump, on Sunday shows and, most entertainingly, on Twitter transformed the main foreign policy “achievement” of the neoconservative movement into a toxic campaign issue for the GOP’s Establishment-friendly candidates.

Paris Attacks Could Give Neocon Presidential Candidates a Big Boost

Last week’s attack in Paris has provoked a wide range of reactions — horror, anger, revulsion. The tragic event has triggered calls for war and for peace. And, of course, they’ve added a new kind of fuel to the partisan bickering on this side of the Atlantic.

Most notably, the Paris attack may very well speed up a phenomenon that was already well underway in the U.S.: the revitalization of neo-conservativism, an ideology many thought had faded into oblivion with the end of the George W. Bush administration.

Along with fellow neocons Richard Perle, Douglas Feith (who ran the Iraq war propaganda machine), David Wurmser and others in the Pentagon and the administration, neocon insiders advanced the principles of the “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” document prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Perle for Benjamin Netanyahu, at the time Prime Minister of Israel.
“The document created by the Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000 called for overthrowing Saddam Hussein and waging a proxy war against al-Assad in Syria,” we explain in ISIS and the Plan to Balkanize the Middle East.

So, just what is a neocon? Remember, the goal of globalists is GLOBALISM. Therefore, here are the issues that promote globalism. Here are the issues that form a common denominator among neocons. When you observe your professing “conservative” congressman or senator supporting these issues, you can KNOW that they are, in reality, globalist-controlled NEOCONS.

It’s Reaganite Cruz versus Wilsonian Neocon Rubio

The Cruz-Rubio race will be distinguished by a sharp foreign policy distinction: Ted Cruz is a Reaganite, and Marco Rubio is a Neocon. Neither Cruz nor Rubio is an isolationist like Rand Paul. The philosophies of Cruz and Rubio as to when to intervene abroad, however, are totally different.
On foreign policy, Ronald Reagan’s administration was distinguished by 1) the rebuilding of our national defense; and 2) foreign interventions and alliances only when necessary to preserve, protect, and advance our national interests. In short, Reagan was a highly successful practitioner of Realpolitik.

Bush Sr. Blames Neocons for Ruining W.’s Presidency: Is He Warning Jeb?

In interviews given for a new biography, George H. W. Bush, 91 lets loose against Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, whom he clearly blames for many of the failures of the presidency of his son, George W. Bush.  But if you attend carefully to what he said, it is clear that he actually was slamming the Neoconservative cabal that Cheney and Rumsfeld brought to Washington with them.  He said:
“I don’t know, he just became very hardline and very different from the Dick Cheney I knew and worked with . . . The reaction [to 9/11], what to do about the Middle East. Just iron-ass. His seeming knuckling under to the real hard-charging guys who want to fight about everything, use force to get our way in the Middle East.”

Rand Paul Tells Democrats: “Hillary Clinton is a Neocon!”

Paul explained that, “Cheney’s been wrong about most foreign policy decisions for the last thirty years,” and that the war in Iraq has destabilized the region. Matthews next brought up the newly-found love affair that some Republican hawks have with Marco Rubio, but Paul used this opportunity to bring up an often-missed point: the many neoconservatives in the GOP field share a common foreign policy with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

Victoria Nuland’s family ties: The Permanent Government in action

Intertwined Jewish power families are an important aspect of Jewish history, cementing business relationships by creating networks of close relatives who married only among themselves—e.g., the Court Jews of 17th- and 18th-century Europe (see here, pp 150-152).  We see echoes of that in the contemporary world, as among the neocons.
As with the other Jewish intellectual movements I have studied, neoconservatives have a history of mutual admiration, close, mutually supportive personal, professional, and familial relationships, and focused cooperation in pursuit of common goals. For example, Norman Podhoretz, the former editor of Commentary, is the father of John Podhoretz, a neoconservative editor and columnist. Norman Podhoretz is also the father-in-law of Elliott Abrams, the former head of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (a neoconservative think tank) and the director of Near Eastern affairs at the National Security Council. Norman’s wife, Midge Decter, recently published a hagiographic biography of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, whose number-two and number-three deputies at the Pentagon, respectively, are Wolfowitz and Feith. Perle is a fellow at the AEI. He originally helped Wolfowitz obtain a job with the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency in 1973. In 1982, Perle, as Deputy Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy, hired Feith for a position as his Special Counsel, and then as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Negotiations Policy. In 2001, Deputy Secretary of Defense Wolfowitz helped Feith obtain an appointment as Undersecretary for Policy. Feith then appointed Perle as chairman of the Defense Policy Board. This is only the tip of a very large iceberg. “Neoconservatism as a Jewish movement” (p. 32)

Responding to claims from senior UK and US officials that there is significant evidence that the plane was downed by a bomb on board, Bolton said “If it turns out that ISIS is responsible… that is the single biggest mistake they have ever made.”
“Putin now will retaliate, and he won’t mess around like president Obama has done,” Bolton added, saying that Russian action will be “extraordinarily massive.”

Rubio Anointed Neocon Choice

At the end of last week, third-place Republican primary candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) won a major endorsement, effectively making him the neoconservative candidate of choice and the GOP establishment’s top pick. That endorsement didn’t come from a former president, a labor union, or a high-profile pastor. Instead a publicity-shy New York hedge fund billionaire, Paul Singer, gave Rubio the nod. With it, so the conventional wisdom says, will go millions of dollars of super PAC contributions along with his considerable fundraising prowess.
Singer’s emergence as one of the GOP’s key donors coincides with sizeable investments in Washington’s most hawkish politicians and think tanks. Singer has made significant contributions to Senate hawks like Mark Kirk (R-IL)Tom Cotton (R-AR), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) as well as neoconservative and pro-Likud organizations such as the American Enterprise Institute, the Foundation for Defense of DemocraciesThe Israel Project, and the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Neocon House Speaker Paul Ryan

Ryan and likeminded Republican and Democrat neocons infesting Congress want these vital programs ended—to assure unrestricted military spending as well as sustained handouts to Wall Street and other corporate favorites.

Pat Buchanan Schools Neocons on South China Sea Drama

Outlining the contours of the increasingly dangerous military situation surrounding the territorial dispute between China, Taiwan, the Philippines and Vietnam over the strategically and economically significant Spratly and Paracel Islands, Buchanan asks what, "besides freedom of the seas, is [Washington's] vital interest here?"

Neocon Senate Republicans Join Democrats to Pass Mammoth Budget

During a rare after-midnight session on October 30, the Republican–controlled Senate voted 64 to 35 to pass the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, which began its life in the Republican-controlled House as H.R. 1314. The account of how outgoing House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) put together the budget by striking deals with members of the White House staff, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was documented in an article posted by The New American on October 27.

Marco Rubio Wants a “New American Century” and the Neocons love him for it.

Over at National Review  Eliana Johnson provides us with some valuable insight regarding the neoconservative movement’s current view of the 2016 Presidential race. And let us be clear, neoconservatives are not small government conservatives or libertarian whatsoever. And from the likes of Senator John McCain to Senator Linsey Graham, the neoconservatives have found their man of the hour: Marco Rubio.

Can America survive another eight years of liberal/neocon domination of Washington, D.C.?

The past seven presidential administrations (Bush, Sr. - Obama) and congresses (Republican and Democratic) have taken the United States to the brink of oppression--and maybe destruction. That's 28 years (counting 2016) of continuous domination by liberal Democrats and neocon Republicans. And make no mistake about it: there is virtually NO DIFFERENCE between liberal Democrats and neocon Republicans. They work in tandem. Best buds. Same agenda. Twins. Same parties. Same golf outings. Same clubs. Same money-grubbing. Controlled by the same people. Ad infinitum.

The Neocon Hunger for Universal Empire

When Bill Kristol watches Star Wars movies, he roots for the Galactic Empire. The leading neocon recently caused a social media disturbance in the Force when he tweeted this predilection for the Dark Side following the debut of the final trailer forStar Wars: The Force Awakens.
Kristol sees the Empire as basically a galaxy-wide extrapolation of what he has long wanted the US to have over the Earth: what he has termed “benevolent global hegemony.”

The Deciders

The cast of characters includes President George W. Bush; L. Paul “Jerry” Bremer, the first civilian administrator of postwar Iraq; Douglas Feith, Bush’s undersecretary of defense for policy; Paul Wolfowitz, Bush’s deputy secretary of defense; I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, chief of staff to Vice President Richard B. Cheney (and Cheney’s proxy in these events); Walter Slocombe, who had been President Clinton’s undersecretary of defense for policy, and as such was Feith’s predecessor; Richard Perle, who was chairman of Bush’s defense policy board; and General Jay Garner, whom Bremer replaced as the leader of postwar Iraq.

Rebuffing Peace Chances in Syria

Official Washington’s neocon-dominated “group think” on Syria is that everything is the fault of President Assad and Russian President Putin, but the actual history shows many missed opportunities for peace because of the U.S. obsession with dictating “regime change” in country after country, as Jonathan Marshall explains.

Neocon Scheme: Send Nuke Bombers to Israel

A small but influential group of U.S. lawmakers and former top military officers wants to equip Israel’s air force with some of the biggest and most powerful American-made warplanes—the iconic B-52 and B-1 heavy bombers—plus bunker-busting bombs to go with the planes.
Why? To attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, in case the deal to limit Tehran’s access to atomic weapons collapses. Compared to smaller fighters and attack planes, bombers fly much farther and carry much heavier weaponry, and could do far greater damage to the underground hideouts where Iran stashed much of its nuclear equipment.

Will The Crazed Neocons Bring Us Nuclear Winter?

As readers know, I have emphasized that the declared neoconservative intention of achieving global hegemony has resurrected the threat of nuclear armageddon as Russia and China are most definitely not going to submit, as every European country, the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Columbia, and Japan have submitted, to being Washington’s vassals.
The president of Russia and the president of China have made this completely clear.

Ted Cruz's Closest Counselors Are Neocon, CFR VIPs

There’s a lot about Ted Cruz that should worry constitutionalists considering voting for the senator in the presidential election of 2016.
Recently, Infogram published brief but illuminating biographies of several of Cruz’s key foreign policy advisors. The information disclosed in these revelations could trouble many constitutionalists otherwise keen on the senator and who rely on him to restore the rule of law to the White House.

Recognizing Neocon Failure Shows Obama Has Come To His Senses?

Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge and others are misinterpreting Steve Kroft’s interview with President Obama.  They see weakness and confusion in Obama’s responses and conclude that Kroft shredded Obama.  

What I see is entirely different.  Steve Kroft is either a neoconservative or he is inculcated into the neocon mind-set that the US must prevail everywhere.  Kroft’s view is that weakness and indecision on Obama’s part is the reason the US is not prevailing in Syria.  Kroft’s purpose is to embarrass Obama and push him into escalating the situation.

Being a Neocon Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry

Over the weekend, U.S. military forces bombed a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan that was operated by Doctors Without Borders. At least 22 people were killed. That's not speculation, that's what the Pentagon admits:
A heavily-armed U.S. gunship designed to provide added firepower to special operations forces was responsible for shooting and killing 22 people at a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan over the weekend, Pentagon officials said Monday.

Available from Clarity Press:

This stellar collection of Paul Craig Roberts’ essays dating from February 2014 explores the extreme dangers in Washington’s imposition of vassalage on other countries and Washington’s resurrection of distrust among nuclear powers, the very distrust that Reagan and Gorbachev worked to eliminate.

Watergate and the Washington Post's Big Lie: The Silent Coup and 40 Years of Neocon, Neoliberal War

In 2012 I had this to say about Colodny's epic work, The Forty Year's War: He has written an exceptionally documented and scintillating yarn of American politics dating from the World War II years to the first days of President Obama's administration. The marquee events, names and organizations common in today's political/historical analyses of those years and neocon movement and its successes and failures are all featured prominently in the book: Kissinger, Nixon, Haig, Reagan, Clinton, Bush (first and second), Obama, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Carter, Bin Laden, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Watergate, Iran-Contra, 911, Bob Woodward, the Cold War, the Project for a New American Century, the American Conservative Union and so on.

A Lesson From Scott Walker's Political Collapse: Playing Neocon Warrior Is No Path To Presidency

There may be no sadder political spectacle than a Republican governor running for president. He knows nothing about foreign policy. But he recognizes that Neocons dominate the GOP and expect the nominee to advocate perpetual war. So he plays faux warrior, insisting that he is more likely than his competitors to wreak death and destruction around the globe. Then his presidential campaign collapses.

Accusing those who criticize US foreign policy of “blaming America” is pretty selective, however. Such accusations are never leveled at those who criticize a US pullback. For example, most neocons argue that the current crisis in Iraq is all Obama’s fault for pulling US troops out of the country. Are they “blaming America first” for the mess? No one ever says that. Just like they never explain why the troops were removed from Iraq: the US demanded complete immunity for troops and contractors and the Iraqi government refused.
