From Phil Baldwin
Not a Trump supporter, I vote no on Hillary. Yes, Trump seems menacing. But we hear roughly the same every four years, only this campaign hearkens back 52 years to the anti-Goldwater fear mongering. It worked brilliantly then and just five months after LBJ’s victory we got war in Vietnam. With the likely HRC win in November expect the same – another war.
Hillary has championed one disastrous war after another and this explains why the War Party now endorses her. Our War Party includes all major think tanks, each funded by arms industry giants: Boeing, Northrup-Grumman, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Lockheed-Martin, and McDonald-Douglas. The New Yorker, NYT, WSJ, WaPo, CNN, Daily Beast, MSNBC comprise its propaganda arm.
Foreign policy “experts,” whether liberal interventionists or Republican neocons, now flocking to Hillary, have one thing in common. They promoted U.S. wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and, like Hillary, got each of them wrong.
All support Clinton not because Trump makes bigoted, misogynistic comments, not because he seems an egomaniacal adolescent, not because he’s the NRA’s guy. They back Hillary because Trump’s not on board with the 1%’s “play book.” They’re freaked that he has suggested such dangerous ideas as “getting along with Russia,” the absurdity of NATO today, and that we should “end these nation building regime change wars.” So, yes, the War Party intends to crush Donald Trump.
Do friends care that to achieve this Trump demolition the Democratic wing of the War Party now foments a crazed jingoism, demonization, brinksmanship targeting Russia, Syria, China, and Iran? Surely our associates know HRC was a vociferous proponent of the disastrous Iraq War and that as Secretary of State she exposed a learning disability by repeating the blunder in Libya. Her advocacy of that bombardment generated failed state chaotic violence and misery, a new base for ISIS, plus tens of thousands of refugees. And whose temperament? Upon hearing of Gadaffi’s rape and murder by Islamist terrorists, Hillary laughed while paraphrasing Caesar “We Came, We Saw, He Died.” Five years later our tax dollars fund another air war on Libya.
And having failed to achieve Damascus regime change using proxy “moderate” head chopping jihadists, Hillary now promotes outright war on Syria. Are our friends bothered one iota that Hillary’s foreign policy leadership on Iraq, Libya, and Syria has yielded to date at least 300,000 combatant deaths, 300,000 civilian deaths, five million refugees – 98% “people of color” – all with nary a racist epithet?
It seems likely our next President will not only “believe with all” her “heart that America is an exceptional country” but that the secular President of Syria “has to go” and that the President of nuclear powerhouse (and Syria ally) Russia is akin to “Hitler.”
Second only to her endless wars is the corruption. No room here to review the $22 million Hillary garnered from Wall Street between 2013 and 2015. We do however know had she not been the presumed next President, Clinton would not have been offered, as she put it, “the going rate.” No time here either for the dripping Wikileaks pay-to-play and DNC rigging emails.
Hillary’s Democratic Party is hyped for war with Syria, even Russia. That reason alone is sufficient for us to reject her candidacy and instead support one of the two leading antiwar parties. Vote Green or Libertarian November 8, a combined vote that will kick start opposition to the next planned war of choice.
