Trump (Finally) Hires Neocon Slayer


In what may go down in history as a prime example of a "day late and a dollar short," President Trump today named US combat veteran Col. Douglas Macgregor to be senior advisor to acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller. Trump's recently-fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper was another in a nearly four-year-long line of terrible personnel choices that together with the ongoing Democratic party-led slow-motion coup has crippled the Trump Administration in its most important mission: Putting America first when it comes to foreign policy.

Lindsey Graham: 'Steal Syria's Oil to Pay for US Occupation!'


Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has been chewing down his fingernails ever since President Trump's first suggestion that US troops should come home from the Middle East. Last December, when Trump made it clear that he wanted to end the US troop presence in Syria and let the people of the region take care of their own problems, Graham took to an accommodating media (across the supposed ideological spectrum) to slam, damn, and threaten the president for even entertaining such a sinful thought.

For Cliff May, War Pays


To say that Clifford May, founder of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies,  loves war is an understatement. He loves almost everything about war and he thinks the US should be in a lot more of them. He thinks that the US should never go home, should never withdraw troops, should forever be searching for "bad guys" to fight, lest they come find us and fight us here. Because the rest of the world is exclusively focused on how to invade and destroy the United States.

Are Libertarians the New Neocons?


There is a disturbing trend in some libertarian circles and among some libertarian organizations to be increasingly enamored with foreign interventionism and US government backed regime change overseas. For those focused on foreign affairs, this is particularly troubling as it is abandoning a key tenet of libertarianism: non-interventionism.

Nikki Haley Named to Boeing Board - Lew Rockwell 'Sickened'

"Mike Pence is known as the stupidest person in the Trump Administration, but Nikki Haley was known as the second-stupidest." So Lew Rockwell tells RT on the news that Trump's former Ambassador to the UN has been named to the board of US mega weapons manufacturer Boeing. Rockwell probably gets Haley right, so why on earth would this bomb-making behemoth want someone like that on their board? Rockwell speculates...

Neocons Rage: International (And Domestic) Support for Trump's Syria Pull-Out

The mainstream press coverage of President Trump's announcement that he would be removing US troops from Syria has been unanimously apocalyptic. Journos who until a few days ago couldn't care less about the Kurds (certainly not when US president after US president has used them as a cat's paw and then abandoned them to their fate), were all of a sudden up in arms warning about an impending slaughter with the blood dripping squarely onto Trump's hands.

Melania Trump Kneecaps Top Bolton Aide

Hooray for First Lady Melania Trump! In a refreshingly - and shockingly - frank statement, the relatively quiet First Lady has issued a statement through her spokeswoman today making it clear that top National Security Council aide Mira Ricardel needs to hit the bricks.

State Department's New Victoria Nuland...is Just Like the Old Victoria Nuland!

Yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson swore into office a new Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. Dr. A. Wess Mitchell became the Trump Administration's top diplomat for Europe, "responsible for diplomatic relations with 50 countries in Europe and Eurasia, and with NATO, the EU and the OSCE."

Readers will recall that the position was most recently held during the Obama Administration by Kagan family neocon, Victoria Nuland, who was key catalyst and cookie provider for the US-backed coup overthrowing the elected government in Ukraine. Victoria Nuland's virulently anti-Russia position was a trademark of the neocon persuasion and she put ideology into action by "midwifing," in her own words, an illegal change of government in Ukraine. 

It was Nuland's coup that laid the groundwork for a precipitous decay in US/Russia relations, as Washington's neocons peddled the false line that "Russia invaded Ukraine" to cover up for the fact that it was the US government that had meddled in Ukrainian affairs. The coup was bloody and divisive, resulting in a de-facto split in the country that continues to the day. Ukraine did not flourish as a result of this neocon scheme, but has in fact been in economic free-fall since the US government installed its preferred politicians into positions of power.

Nikki Haley Meltdown: Assad Must Go...and War With North Korea!


There must be something about being named US Ambassador to the UN that brings out the inner mass murderer in people. Madeline Albright famously admitted that she thought 500,000 dead Iraqi children due to US sanctions was "worth it." John Bolton never met a disagreement he didn't want to turn into a war. Samantha Power barked about human rights while her Administration's drones snuffed out human life in unprecedented numbers. The real "butcher of the Balkans" Richard Holbrooke sold the Yugoslavia war on lies. John "Death Squad" Negroponte sold the lie that Saddam Hussein needed to be killed and his country destroyed, and so on. Considering how many millions of civilians have been killed on the war propaganda of US ambassadors to the UN, perhaps the equivalent of another Holocaust could have been avoided if Ron Paul's HR 1146 has passed 30 years ago.
