Neocons Are The Swamp

Dr. Chuck Balwin
by Dr. Chuck Baldwin: Donald Trump won the White House on the promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C. He rode the wave of outsider all the way inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But does Donald Trump even understand what the swamp is or who the people are that keep filling the swamp? By many of his presidential picks thus far (already summarized in this column), I am getting the impression that Trump may not understand who these swamp-fillers really are.

The swamp-fillers are NEOCONS. And they are the biggest threat to America and to everyone who lives on this planet regardless of nationality.

The word “neocon” has become a common term in our political lexicon. However, I don’t think most people truly understand its definition. And at this juncture, I am highly suspicious as to whether Donald Trump understands the definition.

Neocons can be Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal. Political ideologies and parties mean nothing when it comes to who is a neocon. Many neocons are conservative on domestic social issues. Many are liberal on domestic social issues. When it comes to identifying a neocon, titles are meaningless. Hillary Clinton is as much a neocon as Paul Ryan.

First, it is imperative that we understand how politicians in Washington, D.C., operate. Congressional leaders know which congressmen and senators are controllable--and most of them are. Only a handful of our federal congressmen and senators are “untouchable.” My guess is, less than one hundred out of the 535 House members and U.S. senators are truly NOT controlled--and that includes liberals and conservatives.

The vast majority of our congressmen and senators are either morally tainted, which makes them prime targets for bribery and manipulation (can anyone say former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert?), or they are egotistical, ambition-driven hedonists and sociopaths who will do virtually anything to advance themselves. This is the largest group, in my opinion.

Before any vote is cast in Congress, leaders take note of the political makeup of the districts and states that elected their representatives. Was he or she elected by a liberal or conservative district? What are the issues at home that the legislator campaigned on? All of this is readily known by congressional leaders.

Heads are counted before the actual vote to test whether a given bill will comfortably pass or not. If there is a comfortable margin of support for a bill, members who come from a district with opposing views can vote according to the way that will keep the constituents back home happy. ONLY if a bill’s passage requires that members vote against the will of their constituents will they be asked to do so. And the ones who are controlled WILL vote with their congressional leadership--regardless of how much it riles up the constituents back home. Of course, leadership has professionals that will coach the legislator as to how to explain the “bad” vote to the people back home. And, since most votes are not that close, these tactics are not usually required and the legislator’s voting record can appear “good” to the folks back home.

Again, there is only a small handful of congressmen and senators that are untouchable and will NOT cave in to their political leadership when the pressure is on. Congressional leaders refer to these legislators as “rebels.” And they are punished by not being given plush committee assignments or by being overlooked for leadership positions. Plus, leadership will often target the rebel legislators of their own party for defeat in future primary elections in an attempt to replace him or her with a “team player”--meaning a controlled toady for leadership.

Secondly, please understand that the fundamental goal of the elitists who control the neocons is globalism. For the most part, these people care absolutely nothing about domestic social issues. It doesn’t matter to them one whit whether a congressman is pro-life or pro-choice; whether he or she is “pro-family” or pro-gay marriage; whether he or she is identified as a conservative or a liberal. These issues don’t even enter the mind of a globalist. They have but one goal: globalism. Therefore, everything they promote promotes globalism. Everything! Never forget that.

Therefore, “conservative” scorecards are little indication as to whether a congressman or senator is a neocon. A congressman or senator can easily have a “B” or “80%” or better conservative rating and still be a controlled neocon. Most of the issues on these “conservative” or “Christian” or “Family Values” scorecards do not even grade congressman on most neocon issues, so a high score in these rating systems means little. This helps explain why so many Christian voters have little discernment in the voting booth. Their entire reason for voting is skewed. Plus, don’t forget that many of the so-called Christian leaders who put together these scorecards are themselves controlled neocons.

So, just what is a neocon? Remember again that neocons are controlled by globalists. Therefore, the goal is globalism. Here are six of the core issues that promote globalism. Here are the issues that form a common denominator among neocons. When you observe your professing “conservative” congressman or senator supporting these issues, you can KNOW that they are, in reality, globalist-controlled neocons.

*International “Free Trade” Deals
From GATT to NAFTA to TPP, these so-called free trade deals are nothing more than international loopholes that discriminate against the manufacturing jobs and labor class of individual countries in favor of the billionaire class that conducts business internationally.

America has lost millions of manufacturing jobs--and now even high tech jobs--due to these international “free trade” deals. There is nothing “free” about “free trade” deals. Quotas are often established for American exports but NOT for foreign imports. Taxes, duties, tariffs, etc., almost always favor foreign imports and punish U.S. exports. U.S. businesses are forced to take their companies overseas to compete. Entire factories close down, resulting in millions of misplaced U.S. workers. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Following the implementation of NAFTA by Congress, our trade surpluses with partners Mexico and Canada quickly became trade deficits, soaring to nearly $200 billion. Over one million U.S. jobs were lost, and illegal immigration doubled almost immediately. Beyond that, U.S. workers who were somehow able to maintain their jobs watched their wages shrink. That’s right, shrink.

In Mexico, NAFTA has wreaked indescribable havoc. Already depressed wages plummeted. The availability of goods did NOT increase; it substantially DECREASED. While, guess what? Prices INCREASED. It was the passage of NAFTA in 1994 that started the avalanche of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico.

We watched neocon Republicans collaborating with globalist Democrat President Barack Obama to pass the preliminary version of another giant “free trade” bill, called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP--nicknamed Obamatrade). Many people have rightly called TPP “NAFTA on steroids.”

Not only did neocons Boehner/Ryan/McConnell enthusiastically promote TPP, they happily supported giving “fast track” authority to Obama. This allows Obama (or any President) to negotiate and sign a trade agreement without congressional approval--including language that may completely alter established U.S. laws. Subsequent trade legislation proposed to Congress by the President would not be subject to committee markups, and Congress would have only 90 days to approve it--and floor amendments would not be allowed.

See the report: NAFTA At 20: One Million U.S. Jobs Lost, Higher Income Inequality

Candidate Trump said he would kill NAFTA and TPP. But since winning the election, he is already back-pedaling on NAFTA and saying he’s not going to kill it, just “fix” it. This is not a good sign. It would mean that this major plank of the neocon agenda may be left intact under Trump’s presidency. I optimistically expect Trump to NOT sign the full implementation of TPP, but now I highly doubt he will honor his word to overturn NAFTA. This might be because congressional neocons within the GOP have told Trump they will NOT overturn NAFTA and he is not willing to fight them over it. Watch this closely.

*Illegal Immigration
The great goal of globalists is to blur or even eliminate national borders. National borders, and the laws that protect them, are very burdensome to multinational traders. National borders restrict globalists in their pursuit of international wealth. Globalists envision a global economy--with a global government and global military in place to protect that global economy. Individual nationhood is an obstacle to that goal.

The EU is the quintessential prototype of the globalists’ dream of global government. Until individual states within the United States stopped it, neocon Republican President G.W. Bush collaborated with Canada’s Paul Martin and Mexico’s Vincente Fox to establish an EU-type regional government in North America. It was called the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” (SPP). It was also called the “North American Community” and “North American Union.”

The goal of these so-called partnerships is to erase national borders and establish regional government over participating nations that exercise authority over the flow of goods and services--and immigrants--between countries. As an example, the current TPP passed by the Republican House and Senate and signed by Obama has copious rules that further circumvent America’s current immigration laws. Plus, the current invasion of illegal aliens from the Middle East into European countries is facilitated by the enactment of lax immigration policies established by the EU.

The SPP was the brainchild of what must be regarded as the top neocon think tank of all: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Thankfully, public pressure from U.S. Border States (especially Texas and Oklahoma) derailed SPP.

Another way illegal immigration helps globalists remove national boundaries is, it serves to remove a country’s (any country’s) national culture and identity, thereby transforming it into a “sanctuary nation.” In the U.S., this includes removing our Christian heritage.

Anti-illegal immigration was Donald Trump’s number one campaign theme. We will see how much of his rhetoric on this issue will translate into meaningful action. One thing is for sure, the neocons in D.C.--including some of those that Trump has placed in his presidential administration--will NOT passively sit back and let him put a stop to illegal immigration without doing everything they can to ensure that the borders remain wide open. Watch it: the fight to maintain illegal immigration is going to come from within Trump’s very own administration. His resolve on this issue will be sorely tested.

*Perpetual War
Nothing rings the cash register for globalists like war. War helps to replace recalcitrant national leaders who refuse to give international financiers carte blanche in their countries. War helps to redraw national boundaries that favor the global economy. War brings HUGE profit windfalls to the military-industrial-surveillance complexes that are mostly in bed with high-paying globalists. War causes citizens in free countries to accept more governmental authority (which always includes an international component) over their affairs that would never be the case in peacetime. And war is also the perfect solution to resolve the economic problems of a sinking financial system.

In this regard, religious bigotry and intolerance make it easy for globalists to manipulate the passions of people in favor of war. Pitting Christians against Muslims and Muslims against Christians is the current tactic favored by globalists. And, boy, is it working!

When GW Bush was President, the boogeyman was Iraq and Afghanistan. Under Obama, the boogeyman was Syria. And with Donald Trump’s picks for National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, John Kelly, it appears the new boogeyman will be Iran. This is all a manipulation of the globalists to keep the flames of war lit in the world’s only superpower: the United States of America.

Peace is the last thing globalists want. War profiteers lose trillions of dollars annually without the war machine generating limitless wealth for the global elite. Therefore, globalists rely on their war hawk toadies like GW Bush, Dick Cheney, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Henry Kissinger, the CFR, et al. to keep the war fires HOT. We will soon see whether Trump truly understands this part of the “swamp.” On Tuesday of this week, Trump hosted ultra-globalist Henry Kissinger at Trump Tower. That should send chills up your spine. The sovereignty and independence of the United States (not to mention global peace) has no greater enemy than Henry Kissinger. Does Trump have any idea who he is dealing with? We’ll see.

Just this week in Fayetteville, North Carolina, President-Elect Trump said, “The United States is going to abandon its decades of policies promoting regime change in countries around the world.” He also pledged to “follow a policy of restraining U.S. military force around the world rather than unleashing it.” This policy, if implemented, would be a blatant attack against the globalist-neocon perpetual war doctrine. I doubt that generals Mattis, Flynn, and Kelly will be fans of such a dramatic reversal of this long-entrenched perpetual war doctrine; and for Trump to fulfill this pledge, he will be forced to deal head on with the warmongering neocons from all over Washington, D.C. I hope he is serious about this pledge. Again, we’ll see.
*International Banking

Someone said, “All wars are bankers’ wars.” I don’t believe that is strictly true, but I will say MOST wars are bankers wars. And people can start name calling all they want, but it is a cold, hard fact that Zionists are the head of the snake when it comes to international banking. For example, the U.S. Federal Reserve is controlled by the Zionist banks of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Rothschild, Warburg, Lehman Brothers, Lazard Brothers, Israel Moses Seif, and Kuhn Loeb. In fact, the Zionist global banking system controls most of the financial institutions of countries throughout the world.

It is a no-brainer that international banking and global war go hand-in-hand. This is why you will notice that neocon war hawks in Congress are also heavily financed by Zionists. For this and other reasons, I am deeply concerned that Donald Trump’s Zionist son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been appointed as Trump’s personal adviser and is right now setting up shop in Washington, D.C. If Donald Trump does not truly comprehend the role that Zionism plays in the global war agenda of the neocons, he will NEVER be able to successfully “drain the swamp.”

*Police State
Freedom is anathema to globalists; an armed citizenry is anathema to globalists. In order for globalism to succeed, people must be restrained; they must be surveilled; they must be regulated; they must be controlled.

The so-called war on terror (including the federal “war on drugs”--especially marijuana) is the biggest ruse ever invented to put a Police State in place. False flag terror attacks, a plethora of seemingly “random” mass shootings, and a perpetual media barrage against the right of citizens to defend themselves are all tactics of globalists to reduce liberty--and increase government dependence--in a nation.

Neocons are the ones who are the loudest cheerleaders for war in the Middle East, increased surveillance of the American citizenry, the militarization of our local and State police agencies, and antagonistic policies against Russia.

To see if your congressman or senator is a neocon (or controlled by neocons), look at his or her votes for The Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the NDAA (sections 1021 and 1022), NSA spying, etc. Also look at their voting records regarding bills or amendments that would stop the federal government from supplying military armament to our local and State police agencies. You might be surprised to learn that YOUR congressman and senators voted to facilitate the burgeoning Police State in our country. Folks, these are either neocons or people that are controlled by neocons. Again, remember: being a conservative or liberal is completely irrelevant here.

This issue has always been my biggest concern about Donald Trump. Many of his statements regarding “stop and frisk” and other such notions are repugnant to anyone who believes in constitutional government and individual liberty. And several of the people Trump has chosen for his cabinet--including Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressman Mike Pompeo--have track records that greatly infringe on liberties protected in the Fourth Amendment of our Bill of Rights.
