Neocon Bil Kristol's Hatred for White Working Class

Neocon Bill Kristol is a walking example of why white working class voters favored Donald Trump over his Republican opponents and Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Kristol has been a tireless promoter of American wars in the Middle East. But in his recent remarks (below), the smirking, smarmy Kirstol expresses his cold-blooded contempt for the well-being of the working class that provides the cannon fodder for Kristol's Mideast wars.




American working class kids die in Kirstol's Mideast wars, while Kirstol and his Neocon colleagues send their kids to the pampered safety of Ivy League colleges, followed by lucrative jobs in media, law, finance, and politics.

And this is the "gratitude" that returning working class war veterans get for their blood, sweat, toil, and tears. A working class kid loses an arm or an eye in Iraq, returns to joblessness, and is essentially told, "Fuck off, loser!" by the Neocons.

It's not just a white thing. Black workers too are offended by these fat, selfish, cold-blooded, pampered Neocon warmongers.




If libertarians want the support of American working class voters, they must demonstrate more compassion for the plight of a working class devastated by globalization, offshoring, wage compression, and other economic woes. Taking a page from lunatic pseudo-philosopher Ayn Rand is not the answer.

Kristol not only spits in the faces of America workers -- he then expects them to pay the taxes for, and even to die, in his Mideast wars. Would that his children were placed on the front lines!

Barak Obama Calls for Tough Enforement of Immigration Laws

Or as Obama phrased it: "We simply cannot allow for people to pour in, undocumented and unchecked." Of course, that was while he was still a Senator.



So it's hypocritical of Obama-worshiping "progressives" to attack Trump for his immigration stance, when it was also Obama's immigration stance. Much like "progressives" ignored Obama's wars, while protesting Republican wars.

Support World War III Because ... Obama

 It's nice to see Second City producing a sketch critical -- I mean, really critical -- of warmonger Barak Obama:

Gary Johnson's Latest Gaffe: "Nobody Got Hurt" in NYC Bombing

CNN has reported that the pressure cooker "bomb" in New York City resulted in 29 people being injured. Count 'em -- twenty-nine!

Yet later, on a CNN interview, Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson says he's "just grateful that nobody got hurt."

CIA Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

Actually, it's former CIA "acting director" Michael J. Morell who's endorsing Clinton for President.

In an op-ed for The New York Times [August 5, 2016], Morell writes:

During a 33-year career at the Central Intelligence Agency, I served presidents of both parties — three Republicans and three Democrats. I was at President George W. Bush’s side when we were attacked on Sept. 11; as deputy director of the agency, I was with President Obama when we killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.

I am neither a registered Democrat nor a registered Republican. In my 40 years of voting, I have pulled the lever for candidates of both parties. As a government official, I have always been silent about my preference for president.

No longer. On Nov. 8, I will vote for Hillary Clinton. Between now and then, I will do everything I can to ensure that she is elected as our 45th president.

Two strongly held beliefs have brought me to this decision. First, Mrs. Clinton is highly qualified to be commander in chief. I trust she will deliver on the most important duty of a president — keeping our nation safe. Second, Donald J. Trump is not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security....

Read the rest of Morrell's endorsement here.

Trump is no libertarian, but it's noteworthy that the Establishment is so anti-Trump.

Gary Johnson Endorses George W. Bush

I found an old clip from C-SPAN. I don't know if it's widely known, but it's new to me. It's from the 2000 presidential race. Then Republican Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson, endorses -- even praises -- George W. Bush for president.





Johnson is currently running for president under the Libertarian Party banner, as he had previously in 2012. I agree with critics who complain that the LP's 2016 Johnson/Weld ticket is too pro-Establishment, too pro-mainstream GOP, too pro-Clinton.

As for the above clip, take it for what it's worth.
