'We Are With You...Here Are The Missiles'
Though in the limited time left before Congress adjourns for August break it seemed doubtful an emergency aid package to re-arm Israel could pass, it appears the Senate is not as moribund on some issues as others.

Rubin & Rubio Try To Keep Conservatives In Line
Panic time for neocons! Another poll has been released showing American disdain for the sprawling US military empire. This time Politico hands a piece of kryptonite to the warmongers. An incredible two out of three Americans want the US to stay out of foreign conflicts that are not a direct threat to US national security.

Jennifer Rubin: 'We Must Fix Burma Now!'
Maintaining a military empire is an impossible task. Austrian economic theory explains the reasons why, and human history has more than proved the fact in an empirical sense. Yet, despite the countless failures at world domination, a new batch of power-lusters are always ready to roll the dice that are permanently loaded against them.

So Long, Rep. Eric Cantor
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), who is in his seventh term in the United States House of Representatives and fourth year as House Republican majority leader, lost his primary race for reelection on Tuesday. That means Cantor will be out of the House when a new Congress begins in January.

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.
