Do You Want To Help Put A NeoCon Administration Back Running The White House?
Hillary Clinton's mindset, borne out by her record, is extremely dangerous to world peace. Democratic voters should understand who she really is-- aside from being a woman whose turn it is and aside from spurious and absurdist claims worthy of a House of Cards episode that she's dedicated her life to helping children-- before they help set up another ugly lesser-of-two-evils election between her and Trump. Deciding you must vote for her in November to stop Trump (or Cruz or Ryan or whatever monster emerges out of the riots of the Cleveland GOP convention in July), that's an understandable position. But voting for her in primaries against a better candidate who is far more electable in a general election... that makes no sense at all.
This morning RootsAction noted that some of the most prominent Republican neoCons in the country are pretty comfortable with a Hillary presidency. Even as hyper-partisan as Dick Cheney is, he said that he has "a sense that she's one of the more competent members of the current administration and it would be interesting to speculate about how she might perform were she to be president." Vicious warmonger Robert Kagan went further in accessing the Trump takeover of his party: "the only choice will be to vote for Hillary Clinton. The party cannot be saved, but the country still can be." And her close personal friend and lifelong mentor/role-model, war criminal Henry Kissinger has pretty much endorsed her: "I've known her for many years now, and I respect her intellect. And she ran the State Department in the most effective way that I've ever seen."
In his much-discussed essay at the National Review this week, neoCon ideologue David Harsanyi made the Republican case for sabotaging Trump to Hillary. "Electing a weakened and corrupt Democrat," he wrote about the woman he prefers in the White House, "that Republicans would unite against in Congress is a far better reality than allowing a charlatan to hollow out a party from within... Supporting gridlock is a conservative position, even if it’s not ideal. In fact, GOP voters would be better off thinking about Washington, D.C., as a collection of institutions, with the legislative branch being the more realistic center of conservative power." Sure... especially if they can get a corrupt conservative like Hillary into the White House. See that thermometer on the right? Use that to stop the neoCon takeover as you read the Hillary record of achievement below:
• She says President Obama was wrong not to launch missile strikes on Syria in 2013.
• She pushed hard for the overthrow of Qadaffi in 2011.
• She supported the coup government in Honduras in 2009.
• She has backed escalation and prolongation of war in Afghanistan.
• She voted for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
• She skillfully promoted the White House justification for the war on Iraq.
• She does not hesitate to back the use of drones for targeted killing.
• She has consistently backed the military initiatives of Israel.
• She was not ashamed to laugh at the killing of Qadaffi.
• She has not hesitated to warn that she could obliterate Iran.
• She is not afraid to antagonize Russia.
• She helped facilitate a military coup in Ukraine.
• She has the financial support of the arms makers and many of their foreign customers.
• She waived restrictions at the State Department on selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Qatar, all states wise enough to donate to the Clinton Foundation.
• She supported President Bill Clinton's wars and the power of the president to make war without Congress.
• She has advocated for arming fighters in Syria.
• She supported a surge in Iraq even before President Bush did.
