Key Neocons Went Directly to Banksters to Block Wikileaks Donations

Two “hard right” politicians, Joseph Lieberman and Peter King, went directly to the transnational credit card corporation MasterCard and arranged an extrajudicial financial blockade of Wikileaks, according to heavily redacted European Commission documents.

Although the exact nature of the deal between Lieberman, King and MasterCard are unknown, the two congressmen have actively worked against Wikileaks in the past.

King, who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, sought to classify Wikileaks as a terrorist organization and said the organization should be prosecuted for violating the Espionage act. Lieberman, the former chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, introduced the SHIELD Act (Securing Human Intelligence and Enforcing Lawful Dissemination) in 2010. The legislation would have made it a federal crime to publish information “concerning the identity of a classified source or informant of an element of the intelligence community of the United States,” or “concerning the human intelligence activities of the United States or any foreign government” if the publication opposed U.S. foreign policy.

Liberal Media: A Neocon Love Story

Is there anything more smug than those who “see the light” and use their new-found positioning to expose their positions of old? There’s the believer turned atheist. There’s the atheist turned believer. There’s the liberal turned conservative and so forth. Of course this apostasy adds nothing to the arguments, but often gives the illusion of credibility to a strolling bookstore patron. So my critique of the liberal media shouldn’t be of much concern.

The ‘mainstream media’ –Oh, how much I loathe that term which is thrown around endlessly– is made up of mostly liberals, and mostly of the Orthodox bend. It doesn’t bother me–as I bear witness to no ideology. But I confess to a slight tingling sensation when reading an AP report and catch whiff of some liberal bias. I first think of my conservative comrades who must be irate, taking every preceding punctuation mark as a sign of the vast liberal conspiracy. I then think of the reporter and their liberal comrades who, in my estimation, are unaware of any bias in the piece. But most importantly, I think of my smug self and how much better I am than all other parties involved in what is supposed to be a boring press report.

Kristol’s Thanksgiving Meditation Makes Central Role of Israel in Neo-Conservatism Clear

For those, particularly in the timid or intimidated U.S. foreign-policy elite, who still pretend or somehow make themselves believe that Israel is not absolutely central to the neo-conservative worldview, I commend this week’s Thanksgiving editorial by Bill Kristol, scion of one of the movement’s two founding families, in The Weekly Standard, entitled “The West Fights Back”. While it deserves to be read — and deconstructed — in full, here’s the meat:
For what the West stands against is terror—whether the terror of modern secular totalitarianism or the terror of an older, and now revitalized, religious fanaticism. From the Great Terrors of Stalin and Hitler to the attacks on New York and Tel Aviv, and on Madrid, Bali, and Mumbai, terrorists of all stripes know who their enemies are. They attack across the world and kill Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike—but they grasp that the centers of resistance, the nations that stand most squarely in their path, are the United States and Israel.
And so these two very different nations—Christian and Jewish, large and small, new world and old (though the new world nation is older than its newly reborn old world counterpart)—find themselves allied. More than allied: They find themselves joined at the hip in a brotherhood that is more than a diplomatic or political or military alliance. Everyone senses that the ties are deeper than those of mere allies. Israelis know that if the United States fails, so shall Israel. Americans sense, in the words of Eric Hoffer, “as it goes with Israel so will it go with all of us. Should Israel perish the holocaust will be upon us.”

Desperate-to-win Neocon Trash Reconsider Rand Paul (in WaPo, no less!)

To say that Rand Paul is a controversial figure is a gross understatement, but critics who confuse the father, Ron, with the son and who write the son off as a fringe figure are missing something.

I don’t agree with him that revenue shouldn’t be part of a grand bargain or that defense (the only area of government that has already seen real cuts) should cough up more, but neither do I hear him trying to mount a filibuster. And I do think that if conservative hawks are going to preserve a responsible level of defense spending, they will need to put forth a sound process for reforming Pentagon appropriations, health care, etc.

More at the link:

My comment: In 2016, desperate-to-win neocon trash will convince themselves that they can work with Rand Paul. This process has already begun. We should not let this taint Rand. Instead, we should enjoy the turnabout and look forward to (even relish) their inevitable disappointment once Rand becomes president.

Will the Liberty movement prevent RINO neocons from ever winning a Presidential race again?

It's no secret that the neocon faction of the GOP hates the people of the liberty movement. We're taking precinct by precinct with the message of peace, individual liberty, natural law, less government and greater freedom, based on the principals of the Constitution. Liberty is popular. The neocons platform of endless war and aggression, big government, behavior control, debt and the forced selection of globalist puppets for Presidential candidates meant that most liberty Republicans voted for everyone but Romney. State election results now reveal that millions voted GOP, but mysteriously left the Presidential box unchecked, as did I. Where do the dying neocon RINO's believe they will find new support to counter the 40+%, or so, of energetic, informed liberty-minded people that now occupy the GOP from the precincts, up? Source

British neocon blog exposed as Israeli mouthpiece

In the past 24 hours the UK-based neo-conservative blog Harry’s Place has exposed itself as an outright propaganda outlet of the Israeli armed forces.

For months I have been posting comments on the blog, which in 2006 won the annual Islamophobia award given by the Islamic Human Rights Commission. Although my comments have been generally tolerated, I receive constant verbal abuse for my beliefs as a Muslim from commentators on the blog. Nonetheless, I have continued to comment, in the hope that I might be able to put across just a few points amid the constant tide of Islamophobia. Misguidedly, I thought I might be able to succeed in persuading a few commentators to view Muslims as human beings and not savages, as Harry’s Place makes them out to be.

Neocon Bill Kristol Pimping His Marxist Agenda – Thinks You Need To Be Taxed More

No surprise from Bill Kristol. His dad was part of The New York Intellectuals, a group of leftist Trotskyites made up of mostly secular Jews who advocated the ideas of the secular Jewish idol, Karl Marx. Yes, culture matters, and American culture is being destroyed by the likes of these people whose culture is incompatible with America’s.

This isn’t an isolated instance for Kristol, as the left-wing Washington Post points out, he’s advocated previously for the government taking more of your money.

Kristol is another charlatan pretending to be a “conservative” (whatever that means these days) and many of you continue to give him credence. Kristol needs to be sent back to the left where he and his family came from. He wouldn’t know America’s founding principles if they bit him on his circumcision.

Paula Broadwell: Did Neocon Honeypot Take Down Petraeus?

If we look at the background of Paula Broadwell, the biographer and alleged mistress of former CIA boss David Petraeus, we see connections to the neocon network.

Broadwell, née Krantz, is linked to Norwegian shipping magnate and former banker Jan Henrik Jebsen, who is in turn linked to key neocons, including Scooter Libby, Conrad Black, Douglas Feith, Richard Perle, and Michael Ledeen at the Hudson Institute, a premier neocon think-tank funded by the likes of the Scaife Foundations and General Electric, Monsanto, and other transnational corporations.

“Hudson operates inside Israel, where it pushes the far-rightist views of the most extreme elements in Israeli society: the settler movement, and the faction of Likud angling for war with Iran. It has also focused its attention on purging universities of academics who don’t toe the right-wing ultra-nationalist Likudnik line,” writes Justin Raimondo.

The Neocon Proscription

The totalitarians at the Weekly Standard have a plan for Americans who petition for secession: strip them of their citizenship and deport them. Say, you don't suppose their tax "obligations" would end at the same time, do you, and that they could be deported to, say, Singapore or New Zealand? Nah. The neocons would want all their assets seized.

Behind Petraeus’s Resignation

One person familiar with the Obama administration’s thinking said President Obama was never close to Petraeus, who was viewed as a favorite of the neoconservatives and someone who had undercut a possible solution to Iran’s nuclear program in 2011 by pushing a bizarre claim that Iranian intelligence was behind an assassination plot aimed at the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

As that case initially evolved, the White House and Justice Department were skeptical that the plot traced back to the Iranian government, but Petraeus pushed the alleged connection which was then made public in a high-profile indictment. The charges further strained relations with Iran, making a possible military confrontation more likely.

Is a Neocon Purge Coming? Or a Last Laugh?

Moreover, what have the Neocons really lost? A close look at how Obama captured the "center" in the foreign policy debate shows that the supposed socialist peacenik (and his party) moved considerably to the right -- he did not drag the national consensus to the left. Drone strikes, kill lists, a war in Libya, a march toward war with Iran, the expansion of special forces operations throughout the world and a continued belief that spreading freedom to the world is a sacred American mission are all now considered the "mainstream" of U.S. foreign policy.

The neocons may have lost the political battle, but in the battle of ideas, things are (mostly) still going their way -- albeit not as fast as they might have otherwise gone had Romney won.

Romney and his Neocon Cabal have LOST! Let the Neocon Purge Begin!

Can we please let the neocon purge begin! We must go after Lindsey Grahm, Marco Rubio, Eric Cantor, John Boehner, etc. Show no mercy. Let's make the GOP realize it will never get our support again, till it becomes a party of freedom, liberty, and peace! Can we unite around this people?

Romney’s Neocons

Alongside the very neocons he denies have any influence in RomneyWorld, Zakheim joined the Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf, a neocon front group organized in 1990 to support the first Gulf war: in 1998, CPSG issued a new clarion call for an invasion of Iraq addressed to President Bill, with the Usual Suspects (including Zakheim) as co-signers. Zakheim’s career as an up-and-comer in neoconservative precincts continued with the formation of the Project for a New American Century – Bill Kristol’s interventionist pressure group – on whose behalf he signed a series of open letters calling for war with Iraq. As recently as February, Zakheim continued his letter-signing spree, demanding – along with dozens of fellow neocon “camp followers” – that the President intervene in a vague-but-more-muscular fashion in Syria. In 2000, he co-authored a PNAC position paper on defense spending which called for a huge increase on the grounds that “the best defense is a good offense.” He shared credit for this proposal with Wolfowitz, Cohen, John Bolton, and Rumsfeld advisors Devon Cross and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby. As Undersecretary of State and Pentagon comptroller during the Bush administration – during which time the Pentagon lost track of $1 trillion — he was a key cog in a foreign policy shop dominated by his fellow neocons.

Aside from that, however, there are plenty of neocon “camp followers” – i.e. fellow travelers, as we McCarthyites used to say - serving the Romneyite cause. I won’t bother compiling a comprehensive list, since othershave taken up that task. As Ari Berman notedin The Nation way back in May:
