Dan Senor

Former Iraq war spokesman Dan Senor, an adviser to the Romney campaign who has been heavily covered in the news of late because of his high-profile efforts to shape the campaign’s Middle East message, has said that if the former governor is elected, he would support a decision by Israel to preemptively attack Iran.

Frederick Fleitz

A former CIA officer who now works as an editor for a right-wing news group, Fleitz argues that diplomacy on Iran is no longer an option, worries that Syria might transfer nuclear weapons-related material to terrorists, and appears none too happy about Right Web’s efforts to publicize his advocacy of militarist foreign policies or his alleged role in the “PlameGate” affair.

Nina Rosenwald

An heir to the Sears Roebuck fortune, Nina Rosenwald has been dubbed “the sugar mama of anti-Muslim hate” for her philanthropy supporting right-wing and anti-Islamic groups in the United States.

Richard Williamson

Romney surrogate Richard Williamson, a former UN ambassador, claims that a President Romney would put military force on “on the table” to prevent and Iranian “nuclear breakout.”

FreedomWorks

FreedomWorks, one of several establishment Republican Party groups that have endeavored to claim the mantle of the Tea Party, has warned GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney that he has to move further right.

Dan Quayle

Was Mitt Romney’s overseas misadventure his “potatoe” moment? Former VP Quayle’s most enduring legacy, besides having had William Kristol as his “brain,” is his record of verbal gaffes, against which numerous successive political figures have been compared.

AIPAC has done more than just tolerate the U.S. tilt toward extreme and often xenophobic views. Newly released tax filings show that the country’s biggest pro-Israel group financially contributed to the Center for Security Policy, the think-tank that played a pivotal role in engineering the Trump administration’s efforts to impose a ban on Muslim immigration.

It would have been hard for Trump to find someone with more extreme positions than David Friedman for U.S. ambassador to Israel.

Just as the “bogeyman” of the Mexican rapist and drug dealer is used to justify the Wall and mass immigration detention, the specter of Muslim terrorists is being used to validate gutting the refugee program and limiting admission from North Africa, and Southwest and South Asia.

Although the mainstream media narrative about Trump’s Russia ties has been fairly linear, in reality the situation appears to be anything but.

Reagan’s military buildup had little justification, though the military was rebuilding after the Vietnam disaster. Today, there is almost no case at all for a defense budget increase as big as the $54 billion that the Trump administration wants.

The very idea of any U.S. president putting his personal financial interests ahead of the U.S. national interest is sufficient reason for the public to be outraged. That such a conflict of interest may affect real U.S. foreign policy decisions is an outrage.

The new US administration is continuing a state of war that has existed for 16 years.
