Neocon Chameleons Return As Progressives

The decline and closure of the neocon flagship journal, The Weekly Standard, did not slow the neocons at all. They are back with a new publication funded by a left-wing billionaire, but preaching from the same neocon playbook. Why do neocons continue to change their stripes, from Trotskyites in the 1930's, to Reagan conservatives, to Hillary-ite liberals?

Lindsey Graham Prophesies ‘Iraq on Steroids’ Syria Scenario. Israel Obliges with Attack on Damascus

undefined

The Republican Senator from South Carolina uttered his remarks following a series of curiously timed developments in Syria, including a terror attack in the northern city of Manbij that reportedly left four Americans dead, and ongoing Israeli attacks on Syrian territory.

Graham, an outspoken critic of Donald Trump’s plan to withdraw some 2,000 US troops from Syria, drew parallels between this move and America’s disastrous military campaign in Iraq, which culminated in the most unacceptable scenario for any neoconservative ‘hawk on steroids’ and that is a tail-between-the-legs withdrawal.

"So I told President Trump – if you withdraw and do not think this through, you're creating a nightmare for Turkey," Graham said from Ankara, the Turkish capital. “This is going to be Iraq on steroids.”

Considering that Washington has behaved as a lawless belligerent in Iraq, exactly as it has been in Syria and Libya, talk of a withdrawal that is “too early” is the height of arrogance and hubris. The fact is US forces had no right to be in any of those places, where their status is that of brute occupiers.

Martin Luther King's Murder - Conspiracy Or Coincidence?

MLK's family has been adamant and unanimous: James Earl Ray did not kill the civil rights leader. Many of MLK's associates share the view. We do know how the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover harassed King for years before his death. What might the conspiracy to kill King look like and why is it important 51 years later?

Fire the Fed?

undefined

President Trump’s frustration with the Federal Reserve’s (minuscule) interest rate increases that he blames for the downturn in the stock market has reportedly led him to inquire if he has the authority to remove Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Chairman Powell has stated that he would not comply with a presidential request for his resignation, meaning President Trump would have to fire Powell if Trump was serious about removing him.

Eisenhower’s Nightmare on Steroids

undefined

President Donald Trump’s plan to escalate efforts in Ballistic Missile Defense (BDM), including the introduction of space-based weapons, should not be viewed in isolation. It comes on top of the Defense Department’s plan to execute an across-the-board modernization of all our nuclear strike forces. It comes on top of the expansion of NATO under three presidents, despite earlier promises (here and here) to the contrary.

Amnesty International’s Troubling Collaboration with UK & US Intelligence

undefined

Amnesty International, the eminent human-rights non-governmental organization, is widely known for its advocacy in that realm. It produces reports critical of the Israeli occupation in Palestine and the Saudi-led war on Yemen. But it also publishes a steady flow of indictments against countries that don’t play ball with Washington — countries like Iran, China, Venezuela, Nicaragua, North Korea and more. Those reports amplify the drumbeat for a “humanitarian” intervention in those nations.

Amnesty’s stellar image as a global defender of human rights runs counter to its early days when the British Foreign Office was believed to be censoring reports critical of the British empire. Peter Benenson, the co-founder of Amnesty, had deep ties to the British Foreign Office and Colonial Office while another co-founder, Luis Kutner, informed the FBI of a gun cache at Black Panther leader Fred Hampton’s home weeks before he was killed by the Bureau in a gun raid.

These troubling connections contradict Amnesty’s image as a benevolent defender of human rights and reveal key figures at the organization during its early years to be less concerned with human dignity and more concerned with the dignity of the United States and United Kingdom’s image in the world.

A conflicted beginning

Amnesty’s Benenson, an avowed anti-communist, hailed from a military intelligence background. He pledged that Amnesty would be independent of government influence and would represent prisoners in the East, West, and global South alike.

Russian Homeschoolers 'Upending' US Democracy by Networking With American Homeschoolers Says Clinton Linked Foundation

undefined

This is very funny. The Center for American Progress (Wikipedia) is a major liberal foundation, basically, a front organization for the Clinton machine, which is now searching for a reason to exist. Major funders include Bill Gates, the Ford Foundation, and the United Arab Emirates. They have a news site, ThinkProgress, which ran an "investigation" headed by this  intellectual heavyweight, Casey Michel.

Casey writes a lot about how Russia is undermining US democracy by "infiltrating" American conservative networks, and he's VERY worried about it.

He quotes an "expert" who says that homeschoolers are often "Christofascists", and cites me, whom he describes as "rabidly anti-semitic", linking to a Daily Beast article. He finds it alarming that I ran a favorable article about a big pro-Christian homeschooling conference recently held in St. Petersburg. It was written by Father Joseph Gleason, the American editor of Russian Faith who homeschooled his 8 children. Michel frets that Russian Faith, which I publish, is "Kremlin linked", whatever that means.

Do read all about this frightening development that threatens the very foundations of our great Republic. Russian Christian homeschoolers are flourishing, and networking with and benefiting from the experience of Americans who have developed excellent Christian curriculums, books, and study materials. We can't have that now, can we! Shut it down!

Is the Violent Dismemberment of Russia Official US Policy?

undefined

If there’s one thing everyone in today’s Washington can agree on, it’s that whenever an official or someone being paid by the government says something truly outrageous or dangerous, there should be consequences, if only a fleeting moment of media fury. With one notable exception: Arguing that the US should be quietly working to promote the violent disintegration and carving up of the largest country on Earth.

What A Coincidence! After Syria Attack, Will We Have To Stay?

Neocons like Sen. Lindsey Graham are blaming President Trump for yesterday's attack in Manbij, Syria, which killed four US troops. Graham claims that Trump's withdrawal announcement emboldened ISIS to attack the US. But does this make sense? Would ISIS do the one thing that would get the US to stay? Even if an ISIS member committed the suicide attack, does one lone attack signal a resurgence of ISIS? Or desperation? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...
