Yes, There Are People Worse than Liberals

They are called neocons.

Neocons posess all the bad characteristics of liberals. They are social liberals. They favor amnesty and mass migration to the US. Most are pro-abort and pro-gay rights. They are globalists. They want a new world order in which the peasants have no control over their lives.

But, they have even more nagatives than liberals. Liberals don’t want perpetual war; neocons do … as long as other people’s children and grand children are the ones coming home in body bags. They pretend to be conservatives (hence the term neoconservative as opposed to neosocialist) to gain power in the GOP so they can stab conservatives in the back and undermine conservative policy every chance they get. Even Nancy Pelosi doesn’t do that.

The neocons gained power under Reagan and increased their power under Bush41 and Bush43. They were the architects of Bush43’s disastrous foreign policy that left a legacy or war and death in the Middle East and got the country involved in the nation’s longest ongoing war in Afghanistan.

They hate Donald Trump because of nationalism, populism and other policies are diametrically opposed to theirs and, equally important, because he has virtaully ignored them.

Neocons like Wee Willie Krystal, Jonah Goldberg, Steven Hayes and John Podhoretz did everything possible to prevent Donald Trump from becoming President and now are doing everything to undermine him.

How fraudulent and hypocritical are neocons? Let’s look at Max Boot, a neocon and #NeverTrumper.

Boot wrote an article in Foreign Policy about 2017 being the year he learned about his white privilege. Does white privilege exist? Yes. Do 99% of whites benefit from white privilege? Absolutely not.

Cases of white privilege: John McCain being admitted to Annapolis and not being removed from flight status because of an abominable record as a pilot. Chris Wallace and Mika Brzezinski having well-paying jobs in the national media because of who their fathers were (even though both are talentless hacks) also comes to mind.

Then there whites like my children. Brendan worked his way through college waiting on tables at Outback. Bridget earned hers working retail summers and at an Indian casino during the school year. Both are paying student loans. Where was their white privilege? They are no different that 95% of white kids who attended college. No one gave them anything.

Boot is a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. What does a senior fellow do? Kind of whatever they want, including writing newspaper columns on company time while making a handsome salary and great benefits. It appears Boot has white privilege. You don’t become a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations without powerful connections.

Like college presidents and professors who rail against white privilege, why doesn’t Max Boot resign his cushy job at the Council on Foreign Relations with the stipulation that a minority be hired as his replacement. That would require personal sacrifice and the last thing neocons want to do is make personal sacrifices. It’s far better being a hypocrite and a fraud.

    It’s far better to have a known enemy than someone who pretends to be a friend but constantly throws you under the bus.

    The parents of many neocons were Trotskyites. Trust me, while they claim to be on our side, they never are.

    Eph,

    From your comment in the previous thread. I pointed out two weeks ago that The Valley that the place was becoming a campground. That LA is experiencing the same is no surprise.

    BC,

    You know maybe it is time to go back to the old labels as the current ones are all F’d up.

    Monarchists == Progressives, BLMs, Neocons, Red Guards, Liberals, LaRaza, etc.
    Anarchists == Limited Govt types, some libertarians, old line Dims (damn near extinct now), Leave-Me-Aloners, etc.

    But I agree the neocons are as bad as the Progressives.

    drdog09 –

    Since Trump – actually since Sarah Palin came on the scene – I have considered myself a nationalist populist rather than a conservative. William Kristol claims to be a conservative, but he is far closer to Nancy Pelosi than he is to us. Even with her brain largely destroyed bo Botox, Pelosi is smart enough not to want neverending war. The only people who want neverending war and neocons and Muslims.

    Thomas Jefferson labeled himself a “Rational Anarchist”…I love the title.

    I’d like NO government…but I’m rational enough (barely) to know we need SOME. Hence a Rational Anarchist! 🙂

    Trump attacks “sweetheart deal” Amazon has with the USPS:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5220975/Trump-says-Amazon-pay-ship-packages.html

    If you lose money on every package, the USPS believes it can make it up on volume.

    I know not many (perhaps none) of you will agree with me, but I support sales taxes on Internet shipments. Why should Amazon get away with not charging sales tax on shipments to Michigan while Best Buy has to charge it on online orders because it has stores in Michigan. Some taxes makes sense. This is one that does.

    Yeah, was reading about people who notice that Amazon deliveries get priority. Same trucks, same drivers but the Amazon deliveries come in the morning and the USPS deliveries come after dinner.

    The USPS loses $1.46 on every Amazon shipment:

    http://fortune.com/2017/07/16/amazon-postal-service-subsidy/

    Multiply that by hundreds of millions and you’re talking real money.

    With email the USPS has primarily become the deliverer of junk mail and Internet purchases. Management probably thinks it’s preferable to lose billions rather than downsize and terminate otherwise unemployable people. It’s called crony capitalism. I have no problem with the USPS delivering Amazon shipments. I have a real problem with losing $1.46 on every shipment, while giving Amazon preference over other shippers.

    6,

    Many states do impose the sales tax. If Amazon has a distro center some states say they must assess the tax. Its part of the reason that Amazon will not place a center in many locales.

    At another blog I read, there is (like here) ongoing discussion about whether AG Sessions is a quiet tiger or a bunny rabbit. One of the pro “tiger” people wrote a long monster post about how the “tiger” would strike.

    There is credible speculation online that both Peter Strzok & Lisa Page flipped and were ‘recruited’ by Mueller into his Special Counsel’s Office in order to tell the OIG everything they knew. Again, from my perspective, it doesn’t really matter if Mueller is directly working for Trump. Either way, he’s essentially working for Trump. So are Peter Strzok & Lisa Page (because of powers and capabilities available to Admiral Rogers).

    A reminder: Peter Strzok led the charge to acquire and pay for the Steele dossier. James Baker, Sally Yates, Bill Preistap & Strzok used the dossier in their illegal syping on Trump, their coup attempt, and their targeting of General Flynn. Remember, also, the OIG investigation — encompassing a VERY BROAD review of allegations — dates back to January 12, 2017 and includes the following:

    [1] Review of allegations that Department or FBI policies or procedures were not followed in connection with, or in actions leading up to or related to, the FBI Director’s public announcement on July 5, 2016
    —– implicating Comey, Lynch, Bill Clinton, McCabe, among others, involved in the fraudulent clearance of Hillary Clinton by Comey’s FBI in July, as well as the crazy shut down / cover up of the Huma Abedin eMail investigation

    [2] Review of Comey’s letters to Congress on October 28 and November 6, 2016, and that certain underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations
    —– implicating Comey, Lynch, Bill Clinton, McCabe, among others, involved in the fraudulent clearance of Hillary Clinton by Comey’s FBI in July, as well as the crazy shut down / cover up of the Human Abedin eMail investigation

    [3] Review of allegations that Comey should have been recused from participating in certain investigative matters
    —– implicating Comey and Andrew McCabe

    [4] Review of allegations that the Department’s Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs improperly disclosed non-public information to the Clinton campaign and/or should have been recused from participating in certain matters
    —– implicating Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter Kadzik’s role investigating & working with Comey / McCabe to shut down the Human Abedin investigation along with Kadzik’s collusion with the Clinton Foundation and John Podesta, etc.

    [5] Review of allegations that Department and FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information
    —– implicating the plethora of organized leakers along with the strategy employed by the Trump Administration (the leaks are real, the news is fake) to deal with these criminal violations (mockmook asked about this yesterday, right?) and who solicited said leaks.

    [6] Review of allegations that decisions regarding the timing of the FBI’s release of certain FOIA documents on October 30 and November 1, 2016, and the use of a Twitter account to publicize same, were influenced by improper considerations
    —– this appears to implicate both Bill and Hillary Clinton but info was also released on Donald Trump’s father; however, the bulk of these records come from a 2001 FBI investigation into the pardon of Marc Rich (1934-2013), aka Marcell David Reich, by President Clinton in 2001; this specifically implicates Bill Clinton, Eric Holder, and Clinton’s then Chief of Staff John Podesta

    Remember, following his pardon this very same Marc Rich helped Bill Clinton set up his Foundation, which appears to have been used as a charity front for a massive criminal enterprise involving pay to play, money laundering, racketeering & tax evasion.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Here’s the last sentence from that January announcement: Finally, if circumstances warrant, the OIG will consider including other issues that may arise during the course of the review.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

    So . . . EVERYTHING is in play, including the revolving door between Google, the law firm of Perkins Coie, CrowdStrike, Fusion GPS, the Clintons, Soros and many other players.

    Do you now see why the suspicion that a novel racketeering prosecution is ALREADY underway? Do you now see that the OIG is working in concert with Congress and the Trump Administration?

    Flashback: on December 18, 2016 Admiral Rogers met with the National Security team of President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team. Reportedly in attendance at that meeting were current DCI Mike Pompeo , former DCI James Woolsey, General Mike Flynn, Jeff Sessions, and Donald Trump. The PSYOP operation, the racketeering prosecution plan, etc., were probably finalized in the days immediately after the move out of Trump Tower but had probably been germinating throughout the campaign for the Presidency.

    So, you want to know how the prosecutions (and there will be many) go forward?

    Admiral Rogers has access to most everything incriminating; he has shared that with the OIG, who will now share with Congress; Sessions and the Department of Justice will prosecute from there. General Flynn placed an Army of spooks into the system during his very-planned-to-be-brief tenure as National Security Adviser. They have identified, documented and flushed most of the leakers; others have been left in place to aid continuing investigations. Flynn was the honeypot drawing out the bad actors while the Trump Administration, via Admiral Rogers, was able to identify, track and investigate them.

    The deed is done. A bunch of people are going to prison. You don’t have to believe it; just keep living.

    Didn’t former Gov Jindal get hammered by the MSM for speaking about no-go zones? All of ’em are ‘tards, frankly.

    Jim,

    My only timeline observation is that I don’t think anyone on Trump’s team knew till the Carter Page dust up. Till then they had no reason to suspect.

    interesting if remotely accurate…cheggit:

    “Reports claim that King of #Jordan has dismissed his three brothers Faisal, Ali and Talal from the Jordanian army leadership after evidence of them contacting #MBS and #MBZ for possible coup and placed them under house arrest. ”

    .. then again, could just be the following actually playing out.

    6 – “I know not many (perhaps none) of you will agree with me, but I support sales taxes on Internet shipments.”

    You know for the most part that happens already, the key there is ‘shipments’, ie ordering physical things online to be delivered (vs. digital product where really near zero infrastructure from a state is used) . IDK about you but most my orders from walmart or amz or anywhere else ‘large’ have ga sales tax included in the bill these days (at least on most of the order). Maybe that’s cause everyone large has presence in GA, either retail or warehouse distro center wise. Curious if say someone in Idaho or Maine sees the same thing as me? Every one in awhile I don’t get taxed on something, but that’s usually niche stuff coming from pretty small outfits.

    re:7 – I have indeed totally witnessed that, this week I noticed it again… amz gift package came in morning via usps… yet I don’t get my mail till 5pm usually; then at ~5pm yesterday I got a non-amz pkgs (small-book size) put in my mailbox (was not there in morning i checked) along with male, two visits the same day from USPS. I thought two things… wtf didn’t you drop off the other thing in the morning too, and second, why the hell were you out delivering AMZ packages this morning and not my\other peoples mail? Why didn’t you drop my mail off too at least while you were here?

    I assumed it might have been a) both pkgs were not at local PO that morning (one came later); or maybe it’s a timing thing where drivers are available for whatever reason for a few hours in the morning who might otherwise be idle…so they put them to use vs just eating the wage? It did seem maximized for quickest delivery on amz side, and NOT for least-carbon-footprint\max efficiency\never-hit-address-twice-per-day on USPS side. Funny day though cause UPS showed up twice that day as well, once morning once evening – but that’s not unusual…or to have UPS\fedex packages get delivered along with mail around 5pm, that happens plenty with two-day or longer stuff.

    Should USPS be exploiting the last-mile more since it’s losing 7billion a year? Yeah it sounds like a logical thing to look at assuming it doesn’t cost much market share. Trump really is asking why does it seem like tax-payers are partially subsidizing amazon (numbers seem to suggest it, though maybe they would have lost more without the amz pkgs..idk)?
    No matter what, it’s a good fucking question, thank you Mr.President for putting it out there.

    Members of the press better start looking over their shoulders. Eventually the details of the FISA application will come out as part of the whole sorrid affair. There are civil actions available to the ‘aggrieved party’ under Sec 110 @ $100 day + attorney fees + other costs.

    Imagine you are Rachel Maddow and you have been privy to FISA materials and pounding this story since before the election. Defense in a federal civil action is not cheap. Those costs are per incident per person by the way. Could be a couple mil easy all said and done.

    Still processing #10 (thanks jim – blog name sounds familiar think I’ve been there a couple times b4), think I’ll ponder it all as head out for a big mac…got a craving, then again I’ve been trying to tune most (to the extent I can) shit out the last couple days, politics\deep-state\insanity\liberal-hysteria overload.

    17 – If recent history is any indication, they don’t care (hosts\pundits on tv\newpapers), because they don’t think they really have too, they will not be held to account, certainly not by their employers anyway, not so long as ratings monitors and advertisers don’t.

    Probably right. But I note the aggrieved party is not the govt, but the person under investigation. A guy like Flynn could bring cause against Maddow if she received data under a leak. Probably unlikely but there it is.
