The Mask Slips: 'Libertarians' Call for Pre-Emptive War
Neocon Watch readers may remember Eglė Markevičiūtė. She is the Lithuanian member of the International Executive Board of the Students for Liberty (SFL) who co-wrote, with SFL president Alexander McCobin, an embarrassingly error-riddled attack on Ron Paul over his opposition to US intervention in Ukraine. She is also part of the Young Voices network, which has been recognized for its work by the National Endowment for Democracy, the US government funded regime change organization.

Forbes Magazine's Doomsday Preacher Like a fanatical preacher, who keeps moving ahead his prediction of the end of the world as each new date comes and passes, Forbes magazine's Paul Roderick Gregory has worked himself into a lather screaming that the Russian military invasion of Ukraine is imminent! It's coming! It's already taking place! 

Ukrainian defense analysts and coup-appointed military leaders in Kiev (no conflict of interest there?) are reporting on the invasion, War of the Worlds-style, and Gregory is there, his fingers burning up the keyboard, to dutifully report.

Is Helsinki Burning?
It is not always necessary to click on the latest press release from the neocon dynamic duo, McCain and Graham, to get a sample of the most outré pronouncements. Sometimes the most outlandish and warmongering "analyses" can be found in the strangest places.

Did Students for Liberty Leader Really Attack Ron Paul?
How unfortunate that Alexander McCobin, president of Students for Liberty (SFL), decided to write an attack piece on Ron Paul's non-interventionism while echoing neocon warmongering over the recent referendum held in Crimea. It seems quite a strange move for an organization founded to capitalize on Ron Paul's groundbreaking 2008 run for the presidency, which brought in masses of young people electrified by Dr. Paul's message of peace and prosperity.

'Non-Neocon' Cal Thomas Attacks Ron Paul's 'Isolationism'
Cal Thomas is a survivor. "America's most widely syndicated op-ed columnist" understands that to go against the rising tide of opinion in the US is to say goodbye to an enormously lucrative paycheck for relatively little work.

McCain's Eleven Point Plan For War
Sen. McCain to the rescue. He looks on in horror as the dramatic threats of the Obama administration against Russia on Ukraine are not only undeterring but in fact mocked by the Russians.

Is John McCain Running For The Ukrainian Parliament?
John McCain has sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution. The results are in, and evidence shows that his swearing into office was nothing but his first "official" lie.

McCain: Why Aren't We At War Already?
Sen. John McCain is furious with President Obama. Even though the president's bellicosity over a relatively insignificant piece of land more than 5,000 miles away threatens not only our terminally ill economy but actually threatens World War III, McCain still views the president as weak and accommodating. We should be at war already, dammit!

McCain: ‘It’s Tragic’ There’s No U.S. Military Option In Ukraine
If the US/EU backed overthrow of the Ukrainian government last month had a face, that face would be Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). McCain is the "Energizer Bunny" of US interventionism: wherever there is a government to subvert, a regime to change, chaos to foment, there you will find McCain in its midst.

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.
