THE WAR PARTY IS NONPARTISAN
By Chuck Baldwin
August 11, 2016
It is imperative that people understand that Neocons are politically neutral; they are neither Democrat nor Republican. The only party to which they belong is the War Party. They use Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, and Christians and Muslims to promote their radical pro-war agenda. Political labels mean absolutely nothing to these people.
Neocons care nothing about social and domestic issues either, except as they assist the war agenda. For example, if liberals want to promote the LGBT agenda, Neocons don’t interfere. If conservatives want to promote pro-family legislation, Neocons don’t interfere. Neocons are one-issue driven; and that issue is perpetual war. For the most part, the only domestic issues that Neocons care about are a mushrooming Police State, so-called free trade deals, and maintaining open borders, because a burgeoning Police State, Neocon-controlled trade deals, and open borders directly enhance and promote the Warfare State.
Make no mistake about it: Hillary Clinton is the War Party’s perfect candidate, which is why Neocons in both major parties are flocking to her candidacy. If Adolf Hitler’s rise to power made World War II inevitable, the election of Hillary Clinton will make World War III inevitable (not to mention the war for our right to keep and bear arms).
Over the past several days, news sources from the left, right, and center are warning the American people that a Hillary presidency portends global disaster. Anyone with half a brain (from any political point of view) should be able to see what Hillary Clinton really is: a war monster.
Here are three expert evaluations of what I’m talking about: one from the right, one from the left, and one from the center.
From the Right:
“In the top echelons of political power, there is only one major party in American politics, and that is the globalist war party. In case Americans needed more evidence that party labels are largely meaningless to the bipartisan ruling establishment, influential members of the establishment wing of the GOP--neocons, warmongers, globalists, and so on--are abandoning the Republican Party and in many cases jumping on board the Democrat Hillary Clinton campaign. From Bush-era war hawks who misled Americans into war to pseudo-conservative operatives of the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations, Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) are showing their true colors and allegiances. Blasting Donald Trump, more than a few of the globalist RINOs and neocon warmongers are now proudly on the Hillary Train.”
“Consider: At the top of the list of prominent alleged Republicans pushing Clinton is globalist bankster Henry ‘Hank’ Paulson. Among other supposed accomplishments, the Goldman Sachs CEO and George W. Bush Treasury secretary helped oversee the redistribution of trillions of dollars in public money from middle class and poor Americans to billionaire Wall Street insiders. According to lawmakers, they were threatened by Paulson and his cronies with a declaration of martial law if Congress refused to approve the “banker bailout” heist. Now, Paulson spends much of his time pushing the discredited man-made global-warming theory hoping to profit from the radical policy schemes.
“Also featuring prominently on the list are many of the neocons responsible for squandering trillions of tax dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives--if not millions--on undeclared, illegal wars based on lies. Chief among them is neocon Robert Kagan, a senior fellow at the far-left globalist ‘think tank’ Brookings Institution and a co-founder of the fringe Project for the New American Century that helped lead America into Iraq under Bush. Aside from his own non-stop warmongering seeking to send your children off to die in undeclared wars, Kagan is married to senior Obama official and fellow warmonger Victoria Nuland. Naturally, Kagan is on Team Hillary.
“Another senior neocon globalist on the Hillary Train is Max Boot, a left-wing Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) operative who claims to have been a ‘lifelong Republican’ despite his love for Big Government. ‘[Hillary Clinton] would be vastly preferable to Trump,’ Boot was quoted as saying, adding that he hopes the GOP will split. ‘What she basically espouses is a pretty mainstream view.’ Of course, what Clinton espouses is so far from mainstream, it's hard to believe anyone, including fringe neocons, actually believes something so ridiculous. Just a few days ago, a poll showed eight in 10 voters want more restrictions on abortion, while Clinton wants even less restrictions and more tax funding for it. Almost no Americans except Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and fringe abortion activists support any tax funding for abortions. And that is just the start.
“Others on the list of disgraced ‘Republican’ neocons, globalists, and establishment insiders who are pushing a Clinton presidency include Bush globalist and leading Iraq war booster Richard Armitage; Ken Adelman, assistant to Iraq warmonger Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and later a senior disarmament bureaucrat; Tony Fratto, deputy propagandist for George W. Bush; former ‘regional EPA administrator’ Alan Steinberg, also from the second Bush administration; Mark Salter, a ‘former speechwriter’ for embattled neocon globalist Senator John McCain of Arizona; and more. Also listed are people with politically toxic titles like ‘Republican lobbyist,’ ‘Republican strategist,’ and a handful of mega-donors and crony capitalists.”

From the Left:
“A new low in presidential politics was reached with a candidate representing Washington’s lunatic fringe, a neocon war goddess drooling for endless conflicts.
“If elected, Hillary risks committing greater high crimes of state than her predecessors, including possible nuclear war--why it’s crucial to defeat her in November. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance.
“Her Thursday night acceptance speech was what you’d expect--featuring rambling lofty rhetoric, dreary and dull pontificating, empty promises, an unprincipled display of dishonesty.
“Claiming ‘economic and social justice issues (are) front and center where they belong’ on her agenda belies her record as a corrupt lawyer, first lady, US senator, secretary of state and influence-peddler to the highest bidders through the Clinton Foundation, for self-aggrandizement and wealth enrichment.
“Hillary represents a new low in US politics, featuring unrestrained imperial lawlessness, endless wars of aggression, risking WW III by confronting nonexistent Sino/Russian threats, serving monied and warmongering interests exclusively, along with ignoring the welfare and concerns of ordinary people.
“Defeating her presidential ambitions tops all other priorities for people everywhere.”
From the Center:
“There is a good reason why so many neocons and retired military brass are opting to support Hillary Clinton for president. It is Clinton’s support for continued American military intervention in battle zones abroad and her brinkmanship with Russia that has so many former supporters of George W. Bush opting to rally to Mrs. Clinton’s presidential candidacy.
“For the neocons, Clinton is a natural candidate. The older generation of neocons were originally found nested in the Lyndon Johnson administration as pro-Vietnam War Democrats. When Richard Nixon became president, a few neocons migrated over to support the Republican president, but a vast majority, including Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, and Scooter Libby, found a leader in the war hawk Democratic senator from Washington, Henry ‘Scoop’ Jackson. Jackson’s support for confrontation with the Soviet Union and his lavish sycophantic support for Israel provided the neocons with a senatorial base from which to operate, especially during the Carter administration. The neocons disdained Carter and his human rights advocacy.
“When Ronald Reagan ran for president in 1980, challenging Carter, the neocons saw their chance to become, once again, part of a pro-war administration. Perle, Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, and other neocons avidly supported Reagan and were rewarded with key administration positions as a result. The neocon support continued for both George H. W. and George W. Bush. With the isolationalist-oriented Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination, the neocons have returned to their original roots in the Democratic Party. The party’s platform on issues of war and an interventionist foreign policy were not affected in the least way by Bernie Sanders’s supporters. The Third Way, formerly the Democratic Leadership Council, has praised the Democratic platform for its likeness to past Republican planks on foreign policy and defense.”
“As far as Republicans supporting Clinton is concerned, it should be noted that most of them look forward to Clinton’s war hawkish policies to benefit their own political and financial interests. Richard Armitage and Brent Scowcroft, past members of Bush administrations, are totally involved in the military-industrial complex and see Mrs. Clinton as an insurance policy for their continued lucrative paydays. Hewlett-Packard CEO and GOP candidate for governor of California Meg Whitman has financial interests in the high-tech industry that will do well when Clinton sinks more taxpayers’ money into the bloated Pentagon budget. The same goes for her fellow California high-tech entrepreneur colleague Marc Andreessen, the co-founder of Netscape. Individuals like Whitman, Andreessen, and other wealthy high-tech executives who endorse Clinton see only dollar signs from four to eight years of American wars abroad.
“As for Representative Richard Hanna, the first Republican member of the House of Representatives to endorse Clinton over Trump, the Lebanese-American’s Mohawk Valley district, which includes Rome, Utica, and Binghamton, has a number of Pentagon contractors, including BAE Systems, ITT Corporation, and Rome’s Information Directorate of the Air Force Research Lab. For Hanna, Clinton means wars and wars are good for his congressional district.
“A Hillary Clinton administration, from a defense and foreign policy viewpoint, will look very much like that of George W. Bush.”

While I will reserve a more detailed analysis of Donald Trump’s candidacy for another column, I do not believe Trump belongs to the War Party. But while the War Party is going ALL OUT for Clinton, they are still trying to infiltrate Trump’s staff with Neocons, including successfully convincing Trump to select Neocon Mike Pence as his running mate. How much more they succeed with Trump will depend on how aware Trump is to the whole Neocon agenda and how truly opposed to it he is. These are big unknowns, but his selection of Pence is not encouraging.
What is NOT unknown is how corrupt and committed to the war agenda Hillary Clinton is. And the War Party machine, including its propagandists in the mainstream media, has called for a full-court press to put Hillary in the White House.
Joel Skousen has this part of the story:
“In prior months I have documented the establishment’s attempt to co-opt and control Donald Trump by surrounding him with globalist advisors and ‘friends’ like Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, Rudolph Giuliani and Paul Manafort. That worked partially, as Trump has absorbed all of the neocon propaganda about ISIS and the war on terror, but they haven’t been able to dissuade him from opposing globalist trade agreements and being a roadblock for illegal immigration. . . . It appears that the establishment has given up even trying to control Trump, and has opted instead to create a landslide defeat for the business mogul, with negative attack ads (featuring his own words), articles highlighting his business and personal mistakes and even election fraud, if necessary. In contrast, the criminal sins of Hillary Clinton, which are legion, will continue to receive no coverage or excused as partisan attacks.”
“As long as the media continues to hide the mountains of dirt and corruption on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is going to be the target of the day--every single day!”

Plus, you know that the Bush machine, along with the GOP establishment (including Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell), are working feverishly behind the scenes to elect Clinton.
What this presidential election is proving beyond all doubt is how totally nonpartisan the Neocons are, how committed they are to promoting global war, and how deep the mainstream media is in their hip pocket.
P.S. From a spiritual/scriptural perspective, the greatest crime any nation can commit is the Crime of Aggression. This truth is rooted in both Natural and Revealed Law. God destroys nations (or allows them to destroy themselves) who stubbornly ignore and violate this universal law. America has been routinely ignoring and violating this divine law since the end of World War II. I am afraid God’s patience with America may be running out. When it comes to our national sins, this is the one that pastors and Christians should be focused on--but on the whole, they seem to be totally oblivious to it.
Not long ago, I brought a message on this important subject. The Message is called “The Crime Of Aggression: Condemned By The Law Of Nature And Nature’s God.” I urge readers to obtain this DVD and share it with as many people as they can--including and especially their pastors and church leaders. We will continue to ignore this Natural law to our own destruction.
