Lowry: Trump is neither neocon nor isolationist

Suddenly, the neocons had cachet again (Vox warned that “the Iraq War hawks are back”), and we were about to launch yet another endless war. Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani, New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg wrote, repeating a common refrain, “has brought the United States to the brink of a devastating new conflict in the Middle East.”
There’s no doubt that the operation against Soleimani carried risks, but it didn’t transform Trump into a conventional interventionist. In fact, taking out Soleimani was wholly consistent with the president’s approach to the world that can’t be plotted on a simple hawk/dove or neocon/isolationist axis. As a Jacksonian, Trump is none of the above, combining a willingness to whack our enemies with a distaste for ambitious foreign interventions.

Lincoln Chafee Keeps Ripping ‘Delusional’ Neocons and Democrats Who Compromise With Them

Lincoln Chafee has no taste for neoconservative fantasies, or for the politicians of both major parties who entertain them.
That may not make him the winner of the Democratic presidential contest that the former Rhode Island senator and governor has entered—Chafee’s poll numbers are low, and his campaign has a quirky, do-it-yourself feel that tends to earn him marginal media coverage at best. But it could make him a duly disruptive voice in the Democratic debates that are scheduled to begin in October.

Gabbard: Everybody knows 'Hillary is a warmonger'

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard called Hillary Clinton a “warmonger” and blasted her foreign policy credentials.
Appearing on Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii agreed with Carlson’s assessment that Clinton was a “neocon,” or neoconservative.
“Look to her influence on going to launch regime change over in Syria, Libya,” Gabbard said. “You look throughout — obviously, her support for the war in Iraq — throughout her history. Her track record is well known.”

America Escalates Its “Democratic” Oil War in the Near East

The mainstream media are carefully sidestepping the method behind America’s seeming madness in assassinating Islamic Revolutionary Guard general Qassim Suleimani to start the New Year. The logic behind the assassination was a long-standing application of U.S. global policy, not just a personality quirk of Donald Trump’s impulsive action. His assassination of Iranian military leader Suleimani was indeed a unilateral act of war in violation of international law, but it was a logical step in a long-standing U.S. strategy. It was explicitly authorized by the Senate in the funding bill for the Pentagon that it passed last year.

Neo-Cons Strike at Trump Through ‘Christian’ Networks

On Dec. 19, the day after the House passed neocon-motivated impeachment articles against President Donald Trump, associated allies lobbed a grenade into the center of the religious fundamentalist movement. An editorial, “Trump Should Be Removed from Office,” appeared on the Christianity Today website, authored by Mark Galli, head of the editorial board. The posting called Trump “profoundly immoral,” because he “attempted to use his political power” against a presidential opponent. The piece generated a firestorm among readers, with 3 million online page views, and literally thousands cancelling and even more subscribing to the publication.

Project for the New American Century last updated: October 16, 2019

In a widely noted January 2004 National Interest article titled “The Neoconservative Moment,” Fukuyama argued that the neoconservatives had failed to acknowledge “new facts” about the situation in Iraq and elsewhere. These new facts, he said, included “the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the virulent and steadily mounting anti-Americanism throughout the Middle East, the growing insurgency in Iraq, the fact that no strong democratic leadership had emerged there, the enormous financial and growing human cost of the war, the failure to leverage the war to make progress on the Israeli-Palestinian front, and the fact that America’s fellow democratic allies had by and large failed to fall in line and legitimate American actions ex post.”[37]

Rand Paul's annual Festivus rant targets Pelosi, Giuliani and "Neocon Apprentice" John Bolton

After joking that “it’s going to be really hard to live with myself if I don’t get to sit in a chair all day long for weeks at a time listening to people talk about Rudy Giuliani” and that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., would have wiretapped him if he had talked to Giuliani, Paul tweeted, “You do have to wonder how he was the best the President could think of for a lawyer — ‘hey, get me that guy who spills his guts on CNN and butt dials everyone in Washington. He can keep a secret!’”
Paul then turned his sights on former national security adviser John Bolton, describing him as “what's his name, the guy who kept trying to start all the wars but then got fired on twitter.” He commented that Bolton was one of many “hawks the President hired, didn’t listen to, got mad at and fired. Neocon Apprentice really wasn’t very well thought out.” Paul praised Trump’s foreign policy instincts as “pretty good,” thought that the president would describe them as “perfect” and joked that “President Trump grades phone calls the way he scores his golf game, believe me a few mulligans are taken.”

Neocon Tobin Dupes NY Post & Haaretz Readers on Birch Society

In a column calling for conservatives and Republicans to distance themselves from racists and anti-Semites, neoconservative columnist Jonathan Tobin deceived readers of the New York Post and the fringe left-wing Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Writing about the dispute between the John Birch Society and National Review founder William Buckley, Tobin got the facts exactly backwards. In addition to lying about and demonizing the JBS with blatant falsehoods, Tobin praised Buckley as “conservatism’s intellectual leader,” completely ignoring Buckley’s controversial writings calling for whites, as the “advanced race,” to use force to keep blacks from voting in order to preserve “civilization” in the face of “Negro backwardness.”

The McCain mob in the Senate has been secretly waiting for this hour

Remember, that Graham, McConnell and over half of Senate Republicans are either CFR members or former close allies of Senator John McCain, an implacable enemy of Donald Trump, an international conspirator behind the Ukrainian coup that put in the Clinton and Biden dealing regime that preceded the election of anti-corruption candidate Zelenski., whom Donald Trump, as transcript reveals, spoke innocently and appropriately to, but which Schiff’s witness fraudulently misrepresented never expecting that Donald Trump would prove his innocence by releasing the full conversation transcript unredacted. WITH McCONNELL AND GRAHAM INSISTING THAT THAT SCHIFF’S FALSE-TESTIMONY WITNESSES NOT BE CALLED FOR FULL EXPOSURE IN THE SENATE, THE REPUBLICAN McCAIN NEO-CONS AND OBEDIENT C.F.R. MEMBERS AND THE ANTI-TRUMP BUSH-APPOINTED CHIEF JUSTICE. DONALD TRUMP AND EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR HIM OVER THE C.F.R. ORGANIZED CRIME CLINTON ARE GOING TO HAVE THEIR ELECTION CHOICE OF PRESIDENT STOLEN FROM THEM. IT CAN END NO OTHER WAY. I AM VERY SAD ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE THE LOSS OF TRUMP TO DEEP STATE C.F.R. GLOBALIST TOTALITARIANS IS THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO AMERICA AND THE WORLD.

FISA contradicts the Constitution

Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 1978 in response to the unlawful surveillance of Americans by the FBI and the CIA during the Watergate era. President Richard Nixon — who famously quipped after leaving office that “when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal” — used the FBI and the CIA to spy on his political opponents.
The stated reason was national security. Nixon claimed that foreign agents physically present in the U.S. agitated and aggravated his political opponents to produce the great public unrest in America in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and thus diminished Americans’ appetite for fighting the Vietnam War. There was, of course, no evidence to support that view, but the neocons in Congress and the military-industrial complex supported it even after Nixon left office.

AEI, a Major Neocon Thinktank, Implicated in the Sackler Family’s Opioid Crisis

Now Tucker Carlson has uncovered another angle intimately tied to our new Jewish elite: the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). The AEI figured prominently in my article “Neoconservatism as a Jewish Movement,” published in 2004:
Jewish intellectual and political movements also have typically had ready access to prestigious mainstream media outlets, and this is certainly true for the neocons. Most notable are the Wall Street Journal, CommentaryThe Public Interest, Basic Books (book publishing), and the media empires of Conrad Black and Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch owns the Fox News Channel and the New York Post, and is the main source of funding for Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard—all major neocon outlets.

Trump’s Problems Have Neocons Licking Their Chops

The neoconservatives and their allies are now smelling blood. The Trump-era trajectory of the ideologues who ruled under George W. Bush is complicated. Some neocons, such as writers Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin, David Frum and William Kristol, have flown the coop, effectively or explicitly abandoning the Republican Party. Other neocons have thrived, serving in the Trump administration while the 45th president pursues the hawkish line on Iran that the 43th president actually flinched from. If populist-nationalism could be discredited in the process, that is is just the cherry on top.

Neocon Uses Impeachment To Push Russophobic Agenda

The Russophobic neocon Deep Staters who have trooped before Adam’s Schiff Show to pillory POTUS for daring to look into the Ukrainian stench that engulfs the Imperial City – a rank odor that is owing to their own arrogant meddling in the the internal affairs of that woebegone country.

This time it was Dr. Fiona Hill who sanctimoniously advised the House committee that there is nothing to see on the Ukraine front that involved any legitimate matter of state; it was just the Donald and his tinfoil hat chums jeopardizing the serious business of protecting the national security by injecting electioneering into relations with Ukraine.

McCain Minion Unleashes WILD Neo-Con FURY On Tulsi’s Debate Performance

Democrats Empower a Pack of Paranoid Neocon Morons

That truth, of course, shatters the whole foundation of the Warfare State. It renders NATO an obsolete relic and eviscerates the case for America’s absurd $900 billion defense and national security budget. And with the latter’s demise, the fairest part of Washington’s imperial self-importance and unseemly national security spending-based prosperity would also crumble.

But in their frenzied pursuit of the Donald’s political scalp, the Dems may be inadvertently sabotaging their Deep State masters. That’s because the neocon knuckleheads they are dragging out of the NSC and State Department woodwork are such bellicose simpletons – just maybe their utterly preposterous testimony about the Russkie threat and Ukrainian "front line" will wake up the somnolent American public to the absurdity of the entire Cold War 2.0 campaign.

THE EMPIRE, TRUMP AND INTRA-RULING CLASS CONFLICT

One of Trump’s most traitorous acts is that he’s been consistent, at least rhetorically, in being opposed to U.S. troops being killed in “endless wars.” One need not agree with his reasons to find merit in this worthy objective. His motives probably include Nativism, racism, foreign investment stability, the wars causing more refugees to come here, his massive ego, appeals to his voting base, or simply because he believes both he and the “real America” would be better off. For him, the latter two are synonymous.
For this treachery, those arrayed against Trump include at least, the Pentagon-CIA-armaments lobby, MSM editors like those at CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post, NSA, Zionist neocons, the DNC, establishment Democrats, some hawkish Republican senators, many lifestyle liberals still harboring a sentimental faith in American goodness and even EU and NATO elites who’ve benefited from being faithful lackeys to Washington’s global imperialism.

‘The Dispatch’ is Warmed-Over Neoconservative News

Significantly, older neocons like Bill Bennett, Roger Kimball, Michael Ledeen, and Norman Podhoretz all declared unambiguously for Trump in 2016, while the younger generation, exemplified by John Podhoretz, Steve Hayes, and Bill Kristol, went into opposition. Like the Weekly Standard, The Dispatch speaks for those neocon epigones who have remained hostile to Trump but who wish to pursue more of the same in foreign policy. One suspects that they would attach themselves to political candidates of either party so long as they could obtain the kind of supervisory role over the chief executive that they enjoyed during the George W. Bush presidency.

Absurdity of the Neocons’ Syrian Oil Narrative

No doubt, US foreign and military policy since the 1970s has focused on access to and control over the vast oil reserves in the Middle East. Uncritical support of Saudi Arabia (home base for jihadi terrorism and the women-oppressing form of Islam practiced by the Taliban) and the Shah of Iran (oppressive dictator who led to the creation of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1978) are/were countenanced due to the huge oil reserves these two countries possess. Gulf War I in 1990-91 involving Kuwait and Iraq was entirely about Middle East oil. Gulf War II in Iraq was initiated in 2003 for many yet unclear reasons. But sustaining this war of choice for eight years (through 2011) was done in part to get Iraq’s oil production and export sales back up to the country’s prewar level of 4.5 million barrels/day (b/d).

John McCain Caught Again! Senator Photographed With ISIS Chief





Senator McCain has courted controversy previously after a laptop belonging to one of his staffers was hacked, and a staged ISIS beheading was found in it.
This time photo’s have surfaced (which were previously broadcast worldwide) in which the Senator is hanging out with the same individuals who are allegedly causing trouble in Iraq and Syria.
Madworldnews.com reports:
It’s pretty bad when Al Arabiya, a Muslim Middle East news paper, makes fun of your statement that you can identify the “good guys” in Syria. It is another to get caught in the middle of funding, being filmed, and photographed with a terrorist organization. It seems John McCain either is a traitor, as his fellow Veterans from Vietnam call him, or he can’t tell a “moderate rebel” from the ISIS leader, who was also filmed with McCain despite the multi-million dollar contract on his head.

Trump is Right: Ending the Endless Wars Starts in Syria

President Donald Trump’s withdrawal of forces from Syria and elsewhere is appropriate and long overdue. It’s a necessary return to America’s traditional foreign policy. It’s a rejection of the neoconservative doctrine, which has contributed to the broken state of affairs in the Middle East.
Neoconservative alarmists will stop at nothing to sustain their paradigm of more wars in more places. Others, who originally rejected the Iraq war and subsequent intervention in Syria, now scold the president for leaving. Together they are empowering the failed status quo. Rejecting this status quo is essential for America’s future.
