“Beach House” Bernie Shills for the War Party; Calls for Syrian Intervention

Even though he failed to win the Democratic Presidential nomination last year, Bernie Sanders won a large national platform to spread his message. His message is typically seen as populist and anti-establishment, but on the issue of Syria, Sanders is lining up next to Hillary Clinton and the military industrial complex in calling for regime change. “Let’s all recognize that, in a world full of disgusting dictators, Bashar Assad maybe ranks at the top… We’ve got to work with countries around the world for a political solution to get rid of this guy and to finally bring peace and stability… Keep Reading

Neocon Elliott Abrams to Trump: Remove Steve Bannon from White House!

The neoconservatives are once again emboldened after Trump’s military strike on Syria last week. Former George W. Bush advisor Elliott Abrams is offering some unsolicited advice for President Trump: Dump Steve Bannon as chief political strategist. “He’s not a good influence on the president,” Abrams said to a reporter during a Politico interview. He apparently smiled ear-to-ear while discussing the prospects of Bannon’s removal. Furthermore, he is a firm proponent of Jared Kushner’s increased influence in the White House. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law and the head of the new White House Office of American Innovation. Keep Reading

Putin Shows Heroic Leadership as Trump is Cucked by Neocons in Syria

Donald Trump faced the first true test of his Presidency this past week, and failed abysmally. After a chemical attack in Syria that was attributed without any real evidence to President Bashir al-Assad, Trump threw his relatively non-interventionist stance in the trash immediately to appease the neocons and other Washington D.C. swamp rats, launching airstrikes against the Syrian government. While Trump faltered, a truly masculine leader with big hands reacted like a professional. Vladimir Putin refused to budge to the neocon war machine and throw Assad under the bus at their behest. He refused to feed into the globalist propaganda… Keep Reading

Despite Missile Strikes, Trump Administration Claims Syrian Policy is Unchanged

In the wake of President Trump’s missile strikes in Syria, many observers are alarmed over the possibility of the United States being involved in another full-blown war. However, the Trump Administration is indicating that this strike is more of an isolated incident than a substantiative change of policy. “I would not in any way attempt to extrapolate that to a change in our policy or posture relative to our military activities in Syria today. There has been no change in that status,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. “I think it does demonstrate that President Trump is willing to act… Keep Reading

President Trump Considering Possibility of War Against Syria After Chemical Attack

Recent reports of a chemical attack that was allegedly perpetrated by Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad onto his own people has President Trump reconsidering his stance of neutrality in the Syrian civil war. He is even considering direct military action, a CNN report claims. “It crossed a lot of lines for me,” Trump said in a press conference regarding the recent chemical attack in Syria. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal – people were shocked to hear what gas it was. That crosses many, many lines, beyond a red… Keep Reading

Sen. McCain Fumes as Syrian President Receives Vote of Confidence from Trump State Department

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has indicated that regime change is no longer the official policy regarding Syria, where embattled President Bashar Al-Assad is fighting a civil war against ISIS and other Islamist factions. This is a serious departure in policy from the Obama/Hillary/Neocon doctrine of nation-building and extreme militarism, and Sen. John McCain is far from pleased. Although the Trump Administration is boosting drone strikes in the Middle East and actually has boots on the ground in Syria, that is not enough to satisfy McCain’s longing for war. In addition to the Trump regime furthering America’s overseas presence, McCain… Keep Reading

Back to Iraq: President Trump Deploys Troops for “Temporary” Presence in Mosul

The Trump Administration is escalating its presence in Northern Iraq to include over 300 additional U.S. troops from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division in an attempt to beat back the presence of ISIS in the city. The move is slated to be temporary, but no timeline for withdrawal has been given. A Mar. 27 Military Times report on the escalation stated, “The paratroopers comprise two infantry companies and a route-clearance platoon from the division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team, according to a U.S. defense official, who spoke to Military Times on the condition of anonymity.” They were scheduled to depart for… Keep Reading

Hillary, Neocon Hawk or Sensible Leader?

One of the myths we hear all the time is that Clinton would make a tough and intelligent wartime President. It is true that within the Obama White House Clinton often joined with Panetta and others to advance a more hawkish position. Nevertheless, in almost every instance, she would show herself to be a hawk in the context of a crisis situation. In essence, when the shit hit the fan, she would counsel firing back hard, rather than waiting to see what happens. It can be argued here that Obama’s “wait and see” approach to crisis management actually stopped the… Keep Reading

A Time for War: How Foreign Policy Can Make or Break the Liberty Movement

The Middle East is in flames again, and for once, Liberty people seem unsure what to think about it.  For years our only rallying cry was “no more nation-building – bring the troops home!” And for a while, that was enough.  Our foreign policy ideals were so diametrically opposed to those in play for the last few administrations, we didn’t need to nail down all the details of our ideology.  Mere assertion sufficed. But the situation in Iraq has brought the Liberty Movement to a crossroads. On one side, Ron Paul’s steady non-interventionism is what first drew many people to… Keep Reading

“By the Waters of Babylon We Sat and Wept”

“By the Waters of Babylon” by Don McLean Iraq,  once known as the “cradle of civilization” may soon come to be known as the  “graveyard of civilization.”  The first laws, writing, astronomy and math were all gifts that Mesopotamia gave to advance civilization.  The most famous Mesopotamian from Ur of the Chaldeans, was Abraham,  the  patriarch of the three great religions; Christianity, Judaism and Islam.  Today the land  is being torn apart by religion and foreign intervention.  After the creation of Israel, most of the once large and thriving ancient Jewish community in Iraq fled.  My father came from Iraq to… Keep Reading
