The ‘Foreign Meddling’ Double-Standard

I was interested to read a piece by Glenn Greenwald in The Intercept about the latest incarnation of the developing liberal-neoconservative merger, detailing the founding of a new group that calls itself the “Alliance to Secure Democracy.” This hybrid creature is a two-headed monster, with Clinton foreign policy honcho Laura Rosenberger, who served as a key figure in the Obama administration, and Jamie Fly, the neocons’ neocon, formerly with the now defunct Foreign Policy Initiative (the reincarnation of the infamous Project for a New American Century), at the helm.

Behold, A Pale Horse: Its Rider Is Named Neocon And Hell Follows Him

Glenn Greenwald finds the implications of the reunion of the Democratic Party with the neoconservatives to be “profound and long-term.” Essentially, it means more expensive wars for Americans who lack health care and pensions, leading to direct military confrontation between the US and Russia and China, which will mean the end of the world. As the Rubio, McCain, Lindsey Graham wing of the Republican Party is also united with the neoconservatives, there is no existing political force, excepting the Bernie Sanders part of the Democratic Party, to counter the neoconservative war agenda.

Tucker Carlson, Neocon Slayer

Oh, it was glorious fun, yielding the kind of satisfaction that us anti-interventionists rarely get to enjoy: not one but two prominent neoconservatives who have been wrong about everything for the past decade – yet never held accountable – getting taken down on national television. Tucker Carlson, whose show is a shining light of reason in a fast-darkening world, has performed a public service by demolishing both Ralph Peters and Max Boot on successive shows. But these two encounters with evil weren’t just fun to watch, they’re also highly instructive for what they tell us about the essential weakness of the War Party and its failing strategy for winning over the American people.

The Neoconservative Ideology and Capitalist System Intellectually Cripple Thomas Sowell

Retired career officer in the Armor Branch of the United States Army and military historian Andrew J. Bacevich: “U.S. national-security policy increasingly conforms to patterns of behavior pioneered by the Jewish state. This ‘Israelification’ of U.S. policy may prove beneficial for Israel. Based on the available evidence, it’s not likely to be good for the United States.”

New Neocon Mantra: Iran, like Soviet Union, on Verge of Collapse

Iran hawks suddenly have a new mantra: the Islamic Republic is the Soviet Union in the late 1980s, and the Trump administration should work to hasten the regime’s impending collapse.
It’s not clear why this comparison has surfaced so abruptly. Its proponents don’t cite any tangible or concrete evidence that the regime in Tehran is somehow on its last legs. But I’m guessing that months of internal policy debate on Iran has finally reached the top echelons in the policy-making chaos that is the White House these days. And the hawks, encouraged by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s rather offhand statement late last month that Washington favors “peaceful” regime change in Iran, appear to be trying to influence the internal debate by arguing that this is Trump’s opportunity to be Ronald Reagan. Indeed, this comparison is so ahistorical, so ungrounded in anything observable, that it can only be aimed at one person, someone notorious for a lack of curiosity and historical perspective, and a strong attraction to “fake news” that magnifies his ego and sense of destiny.

This Neo-con administration is pushing Korea– Roosevelt-Japan-Pearl-Harbor-like — into an EMP attack that will murder most of America.

The Neo-con controlled Trump administration is taunting and prodding Kim Jong Un to do the only possible thing North Korea could do in a to-the-death war with the United States — deliver just two nuclear blasts above the United States, to knock out all electronics on each coast, destroying our electronically dependent systems that continuously sustain our population in nearly every way. The administration is part of the plot to get this outcome. Remember, Neo-cons or Deep State were full accomplices in 9-11; they arm and assist ISIS while pretending to fight them; they support the creation of Moslem refugees and the driving of them to Europe creating conditions for a perfect storm of religious and racial conflict. That is all obvious to me. Furthermore, China as allowed North Korea to be the independent rogue crazy-man of East Asia, exactly because they want North Korea to do the super dirty work of conducting EMP war against the United States so that N Korea and not China will be the object of US retaliation, if any. THERE IS NO RATIONAL REASON FOR THE US PUTTING SANCTIONS ON N KOREA AND THREATENING HER WITH GREAT CONVENTIONAL AIR AND NAVAL FORCE. Iceland and Ireland are not on the verge of war with N Korea, why should we be? There is no good
