It’s back to the future with Venezuelan ‘Contras,’ the neocons, and the CIA

The smuggling of U.S. weapons to Venezuelan rebels has evoked memories of Elliott Abrams’s antics during the Iran-Contra scandal in the 1980s. CIA contract airlines, including Southern Air Transport, were busy illegally flying U.S. weapons to Honduras and, via air drop, over Nicaragua, for use by the U.S.-backed Nicaraguan Contra guerrillas. One thing about neocons like Abrams and Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton is that they rarely divert from their standard playbooks. Neocons, not being very bright to begin with, find it difficult to “think outside the box,” therefore they repeat the same failed policies and maneuvering over and over again. And that is the clinical diagnosis of insanity.

On Bolton’s orders, US ambassadors chastise governments

US National Security Adviser John Bolton may be known for a lot of things, but “diplomat” is not one of them. In 2005, Bolton was never confirmed by the US Senate to be George W. Bush’s ambassador to the United Nations because the walrus-mustachioed neoconservative ideologue had made past comments deriding the UN as a useless organization. In 1994, Bolton infamously said, “There is no United Nations. There is an international community that occasionally can be led by the only real power left in the world, and that’s the United States, when it suits our interests and when we can get others to go along… The [UN] Secretariat Building in New York has 38 stories. If you lost ten stories today, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.”

The Neocon Revival

The upending of the political landscape by the Trump revolution has affected every political grouping and rearranged our politics in ways that are still revealing themselves. His populist America First views on foreign policy and international trade have split the GOP, opened up growing divisions among the Democrats, and even disrupted the ideological certitude of the libertarians.

US ‘Regime Change’ in Venezuela: Fake, Fake, Fake!

Hey wait a minute – the neocon faction? There isn’t supposed to be any such thing! If you recall Trump explicitly attacked the neocons in his first foreign policy speech. Why is he appointing his mortal enemies?

And they are indeed his enemies: Elliott Abrams denounced him as unfit to be President and compared him to George McGovern – a dangerous isolationist whose followers must be driven out of the Republican Party.

Trump has a Neocon Problem. How to solve it?

Pompeo’s ‘Pandora’s Box’

Neo-conservatives always tend to take advantage of situations to fill political power vacuums and as Trump’s administration has been rocked by one scandal after another, war mongers and regime change activists like Pompeo, Bolton, and now, Abrams, have grabbed key positions within the Trump administration. On January 25, Pompeo announced that Abrams was being appointed as the special envoy overseeing US policy toward Venezuela. But that announcement came after Pompeo, Bolton, Abrams, and Pence had secret meetings with Guaido in mid-December 2018 in Washington to coordinate regime change activities to force Maduro from office after his January inauguration. Guaido also traveled in December to Brazil and Colombia to hold secret meetings with Bolsonaro, still the president-elect, and Duque. Guaido clandestinely crossed the border into Colombia, from where he traveled to the United States and Brazil. It was also disclosed that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau discussed Venezuela with Duque on January 26.

Bolton Threatens to Send Venezuela’s Maduro to Guantánamo Bay Prison

National Security Adviser John Bolton—the neoconservative who’s played a key role in the Trump administration’s effort to overthrow the Venezuelan government—suggested on Friday that President Nicolás Maduro could find himself locked away in the U.S. military prison at the Guantánamo Bay Naval Station in Cuba if he does not soon step aside.

Neocon Admits He Wants To Stay In Middle East Wars For '300 Years'

Thursday, January 31, 2019

RULERS HATE THEIR OWN PEOPLES

The great crime that was 9/11 was conceived and initiated by a matrix encompassing and (politically) led by the NeoCon think-tank that called itself the "Project for the New American Century". This organisation published a document entitled "Rebuilding America's Defences" in which it openly recommended that the USA should pursue "total global military domination". The document also said that attending to such a goal would be difficult without, "... some catastrophic and catalysing event - like a new Pearl Harbour."

NewsGuard: A Neoconservative Contrivance Which Promotes an Establishment View

There’s a new thought policeman in town. He calls himself NewsGuardand he promises to restore “Trust and Accountability” to what one reads online. His website elaborates that “NewsGuard uses journalism to fight false news, misinformation, and disinformation. Our trained analysts, who are experienced journalists, research online news brands to help readers and viewers know which ones are trying to do legitimate journalism—and which are not…Our Green-Red ratings signal if a website is trying to get it right or instead has a hidden agenda or knowingly publishes falsehoods or propaganda.”

Former Bush Mideast Adviser named U.S. special envoy for Venezuela


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Friday that Elliott Abrams will be the State Department’s special envoy for dealing with the crisis in Venezuela. Abrams was a senior Middle East adviser in George W. Bush’s White House, and also worked for the Republican administrations of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.

Abrams is considered a foreign policy hawk, and one of the most prominent members of the “neo-Conservative” school of thought. During the 2016 Republican primary, he opposed the nomination of Donald Trump, and stated that Trump wasn’t worthy of leading the party of Reagan and Abraham Lincoln. These statements led Trump to veto an attempt by the previous Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, to appoint Abrams to a senior State Department position in 2017.

Elliot Abrams Leads Regime Change In Venezuela

Pompeo announced on Friday that Abrams, neocon Jewish warmonger, has joined the State Department team to “restore democracy” in Venezuela and “assist the people” in achieving the outcome that “America wants them to achieve.”

It’s one thing to restore democracy and quite another to assist people who already have it.

The War on Free Speech Escalates: The American Arrest of Press TV Anchor Marzieh Hashemi

This level of desperation and lawlessness indicates that the desire of the Zionist New World Order Beast to facilitate a war with Iran and possibly Putin’s Russia, now knows no boundaries.  In conjunction with the employment of the MEK to assassinate Iranian scientists on Iranian soil, the illegitimate cancellation of the P5+1 deal with Iran, the subsequent illegitimate imposition of economic sanctions on that country, and the employment of ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria against the Assad regime, the Marzieh Hashemi arrest and detention suggests 2019 will bring a level of escalation against the Tehran government by the Netanyahu government in Israel and Jewish Neo-Conservatives in the United States to the brink of actually achieving the war they have desired for so long.

Curious Bedfellows: The Neocon and Progressive Alliance to Destroy Donald Trump

The neoconservatives lined up behind Hillary Clinton in 2016, appalled by Donald Trump’s condemnation of their centerpiece war in Iraq and even more so by his pledge to end the wars in Asia and nation-building projects while also improving relations with the Russians. They worked actively against the Republican candidate both before he was nominated and elected and did everything they could to stop him, including libeling him as a Russian agent.

Return of the Neocons!

 Neoconservatives, the architects of the War on Terror, are the political version of Jason in Friday the 13th: You can never bank on them being completely dead. They just hide under a log until the next funder appears.
The neocon media tribune, the Weekly Standard, did indeed fold recently. In no time they had a new voice: The Bulwarkedited by former Weekly Standard and current NBC/MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes, with Weekly Standard founder Bill Kristol listed as “editor at large.”

NeoCons Test Drive Newest Weapon to Crush Indie Media, Put MintPress in Their Crosshairs


MINNEAPOLIS —  A recently founded venture claiming to be “a news rating agency” is making its big breakout in 2019 by claiming to be an authority at the forefront in the fight against “fake news.” Newsguard — which describes itself as an organization dedicated to “restoring trust and accountability” and using “journalism to fight false news, misinformation, and disinformation” — has begun targeting independent and alternative media organizations, including MintPress News, with a questionnaire developed to frame its victims as being on the political fringe and lacking professionalism and journalistic integrity in order to rank them as “unreliable” news sites.

Trump’s Neocons Reverse His Syria Withdrawal Plan

I’m starting to wonder whether President Trump has any power over US foreign policy at all. Many people believe that the US president is just a figurehead, with actual foreign policy firmly in the hands of the deep state. Trump’s latest dramatic U-turn on pulling troops from Syria certainly feeds such theories.

Farewell to the Poisoned Dwarf and Four Pizzas

The demise of The Weekly Standard was a pleasure, not because I like to see print magazines go down the drain—to the contrary—but because of its parentage, William Kristol and John Podhoretz. These two unpleasant neocons are known as the “Poisoned Dwarf” and “Four Pizzas,” respectively, and rarely have I seen two bigger con men get away with more stuff than this pair. They are smarmy, loquacious, and incompetent except for self-promotion, and were the movers and cheerleaders for the worst foreign-policy decision Uncle Sam has made, with the possible exception of Vietnam. They, of course, have never apologized but insist to this day that going to war to ensure the safety of Likud is good for America.

Pulling troops out Syria and Afghanistan suggests expectation of conflict with Russia or China against whom those forces would have little chance of survival

While it is a good thing to pull US forces out of Syria and Afghanistan, the move would also be what a president would do if he were about to begin hostilities against Russia. Why the sudden seeing reason on pulling out, when he could have done this any time in the last two years? John Bolton remains national security advisor. He is still surrounded by Neo-cons. The president might be bringing the troops home for the right reasons. He has gone wrong on foreign policy before. We don’t have the whole picture. Bolton created an international incident with China while Trump was talking with Xi Jinping and did not tell Trump that it was being done. Bolton is a man pushing a president into war.

The Weekly Standard, the “Neo-con Bible,” Ends 23-year Publishing Run

The Weekly Standard, a magazine that had been described as a “redoubt of neoconservatism” and as “the neo-con bible,” published its final issue on December 17, 23 years after being founded by veteran neoconservative William Kristol. Kristol was a supporter of the Never Trump movement and has criticized what he calls the “Trumpified Republican Party.”

Neocon Jews Behind Chinese Tech Exec Arrest

These last few days we have seen a masterfully-played hand by China, against the foolish decision of Canadian authorities to play along with a US neocon and 'Israel first' game against China.
 
Canada's arbitrary arrest of a leading Chinese citizen, Huawei executive Ms Meng Wanzhou, at the request of USA neocons acting behind the back of US President Trump, was an act of pure political malice, violating a number of principles of international law.

Trump pushed to war by independent acting Neo-con State Dept & Bolton

The biggest threat is that Rothschild interests will provoke a new war — they are already trying to do so by arresting one of China’s top business people over trading with Iran — which of course China is free to do — and this came from the communist state department and the National Security Adviser AND TRUMP DIDN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT — (Bolton said Trump didn’t now about it, and in this alone he is telling the truth. Trump was negotiating with Xi on trade terms when this was done. The international Establishment is looking to solve it’s populist problem through war. Trudeau is of course sided with the Rothschild agents in the Bush administration, with full knowledge that it was an act against “good Trump” and the people for national sovereignty and populist economy.

Trump Has Been Broken by the Military/Security Complex

In order to protect himself from the military/security complex, President Trump has abandoned his intention of normalizing relations with Russia. Just as the neoconservative ideology needs US hegemony, the military/security complex needs an enemy to justify the $1,000 billion annual budget. The Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have crafted Russia into that enemy. Trump intended to change that, but he has been prevented.

Pentagon Fails First Audit, Neocons Demand More Spending!

The Pentagon has finally completed its first ever audit and the results are as many of us expected. After spending nearly a billion dollars to find out what has happened to trillions in unaccounted-for spending, the long look through the books has concluded that only ten percent of all Pentagon agencies pass muster. I am surprised any of them did.

Even the Pentagon is not surprised by the failure of the audit. "We failed the audit. But we never expected to pass it,” said Deputy Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan. Can we imagine any large US company subject to the prying eyes of the IRS being so unfazed by the discovery that its books have been so mis-handled?

US war on terror orchestrated by Israel First neocons: Scholar

“9/11 was a neoconservative coup d’état to make the US keep fighting perpetual wars, whose only real geo-strategic beneficiary is Israel.” said Kevin Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a PhD  in Islamic and Arabic Studies.
“It was orchestrated by Israel First neocons and to some extent hard-line hawks in the US military establishment,” Barrett told Press TV on Friday.

Will Neoconservatives Convince Trump to Favor Regime Change in Iran?

With the reimposition of economic sanctions Monday on Iran, it appears that the Trump administration is torn as to the purpose of the sanctions. On one hand, President Trump appears desirous of simply forcing the Iranians to terminate their nuclear program (and keep it shut down) and have them cease what the United States calls its “malign activities” in the Middle East. Trump insists that his sanctions are not motivated by an effort to achieve “regime change” in Iran.

Democrats & NeoCon Republicans = Stalinists & Trotskyists

A false left-right paradigm is essentially two opposing groups who give the illusion of hopelessly polarizing worldviews but in reality, they share common goals in the overall scope of things (such as the direction of our country towards a global system). Usually these groups disagree on smaller divisive matters, which maybe real, to manipulate and rally the public behind one side or the other. The basic idea behind this practice is to keep people divided, powerless, and to maintain overall influence within their sphere. The Roman Empire was experts at this tool and although they no longer physically rule, their concepts still live. The false paradigm masterfully uses important issues like abortion, gay marriage, entitlement programs, etc. to distract the masses while they bulldoze bills, executive orders, contracts, etc. that usually constrict our freedom and destroy the sovereignty of our country.

Trump’s neocon foreign policy, just like those from before

As Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, wields ever greater power over U.S. foreign and defense policy, with Defense Secretary James Mattis due to be the next victim of Bolton’s “house cleaning,” the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is preparing Libya for a neocon-led “nation-building” operation. Although Trump has slashed funding for USAID, the agency has found the necessary budget to begin to prepare Libya’s local municipal councils for elections.

Bret Stephens’ neocon vision

The neoconservative vision of the world is a place where the United States can do what it wants because it is both better morally speaking and also more capable of enforcing desirable standards of behavior. Such a viewpoint just might perhaps be understandable if Washington were actually willing to operate in a disinterested leadership capacity to promote standards that are generally accepted by the international community, somewhat similar to what the United Nations is supposed to do, but it becomes repugnant when there is no sense that the US is actually willing to judge itself by the values that it claims to be upholding. This is why global opinion believes that Washington, not Russia or China, is the greatest threat to world peace and also why the United States ranks near the bottom in opinion polls assessing which countries are viewed favorably.
