Neoconservatives Stand for Anti-American Foreign Policies and Empire
Both the Democratic and Republican parties today house neoconservatives, and whatever their differences, they coalesce on foreign policies of war, empire, support for Israel, foreign interference, sanctions, an anti-Iran stance, and American exceptionalism. The Democratic Party has its left-neoconservatives like Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.

Lieberman: 'Attack Assad AND ISIS!'

Max Boots On The Ground
The neocons have a jackboot in the door and they are commencing to kick it in. After they relentlessly hectored President Obama for last week admitting he does not have a strategy to deal with ISIS, the president this week decided to triangulate. Not a single US boot on the ground, he solemnly promised (though we already have 1,000), but he would bomb ISIS to smithereens wherever they might hide. Everywhere!

Neocon Watch

Bill Kristol's Empire of Death


Non-interventionists can learn a great deal by observing when the differing factions of the neo-conservative enterprise take to exposing each other.

Take the Left-neocon New Republic, a magazine that hemorrhages money at such a rate that it literally had a hard time being given away until Facebook kid mega-millionaire Chris Hughes decided to snatch it up with pocket change as a child's toy. Hughes was a deep-pockets campaign supporter of the hyper-interventionist Obama, and in his new "serious" publishing toy no-doubt sees endless opportunities to feature "serious" writers on the faux Left to explain to us barbarians how wonderful the next deadly "humanitarian intervention" is turning out to be.

Nevertheless, the New Republic today features an enormously instructive graphic explaining to its readers "Bill Kristol's Galactic Empire." In this colorful chart we see the endless projects and think tanks and publications and "emergency committees" and "liberation committees" that count Bill Kristol as either a very influential member or leader. No doubt each of these comes with a healthy paycheck for Kristol.

Never mind that every position he has advocated has turned out to be a disaster for the United States. Never mind that nearly every one of his predictions has turned out to be outrageously and even hilariously incorrect. Being a neo-conservative means never being wrong, no matter how wrong you are.

What do Bill Kristol's enterprises all have in common?

They traffic in murder and mayhem worldwide.

They provide well-paid sinecures to "intellectuals" to argue the case for a permanent revolution to be fought by the US to the benefit of the military industrial complex.

They are heavily subsidized by the mega-wealthy who have an international agenda that does not necessarily reflect US interests.

They are oblivious to public opinion in the US and are impervious to market forces.

Though purporting to advocate the spread of democracy worldwide, they are disdainful of majority opinion in the US, preferring to adhere to the Straussian view that the non-elites must be lied to continuously.

Strangely, we owe a debt of gratitude to the New Republic for helping us picture the expansive grotesqueness of Bill Kristol's evil influence over the US body politic.
