Whenever Donald Trump and the full-blown-neocon crowd are at odds with each other over which version is true, I’ll go with Donald Trump over the neocons. Unfortunately, the Democratic leadership and the self-styled “liberal interventionists” always suck up the neocon’s sewage.


… Jordan and the Palestinian leadership, backed by key EU countries and Gulf states, have made clear that they regard any move towards unilateral annexation as illegal, no matter how limited, with Jordan threatening to withdraw from or downgrade its 1994 peace treaty with Israel.

According to right-wing-Zionist Jews of Israel, being opposed to right-wing Zionism is anti-Semitism. That’s not all. They also say that Jews can’t be Christians. They claim “Jewish identity” and Christianity are impossible in the same person.

Donald Trump is vulnerable on China. So is Joe Biden.
