This strip was inspired by Justin Raimondo over at Antiwar.com who pointed out more than once how the antiwar movement on the Democrat side just disappeared.

Justin Raimondo, editorial director of Antiwar.com, discusses the Democratic antiwar activists who rolled over for Obama, the insanity of the “clear, hold, build” strategy in Afghanistan, the rise of neoliberal think-tanks, the dependence of foreign policy on domestic constituencies, the U.S. pursuit of Central Asian oil routes and how a viable pro-peace, pro-liberty movement is decades away from fruition.
Justin Raimondo, editorial director for Antiwar.com, discusses Vladimir Putin’s red-baiting of Soviet America, the U.S. military’s use of old Soviet supply lines into Afghanistan, how the incredible U.S./Russia role reversal confirms the existence of Bizarro World, why the crumbling U.S. economy won’t stop an Afghanistan surge or prevent new interventions in Africa and how the use of logical deduction in figuring out U.S. foreign policy goals only leads to wild speculation.
Justin Raimondo, the editorial director of Antiwar.com, discusses his article “Beware the New Globalism,” the shift in U.S. empire from Bush’s unilaterism to Obama’s multilateralism, how the economic meltdown is only the latest justification for global regulation, the appeal of smaller and more efficient regional governments, the likelihood of increased international cooperation on Iran sanctions and intervention in Africa under the Obama administration and how the U.S. is eschewing a democratic republic in favor of plutocratic socialism.
Justin Raimondo, editorial director of Antiwar.com, discusses the 2008 presidential election, how transitions in government tend toward continuity instead of radical change, the competing policy influences in an Obama administration where Dennis Ross and Anthony Zinni are possible National Security Advisor appointments, how the only difference in foreign intervention between Democratic and Republican administrations is rhetorical, how the neocon parasite feeding on the Republican party will soon leave its shriveled host behind and search for greener pastures, the continuing danger of war with Iran, realist/neocon policy toward Russia, why a vote for Nader is the best medicine in the current corporate-socialist economy, and why the Constitution and Libertarian parties may be one party too many.
Antiwar.com’s editorial director Justin Raimondo discusses his assessment of Barack Obama as not-so-bad, the War Party and the media’s targeting of Obama with guilt by association for his controversial minister while ignoring John McCain’s embrace of minister John Hagee, McCain’s conflating of Iran with Osama and irrational militarism, the legacy of the Old Right and the new and how best to fight al Qaeda.
For the Albert J. Nock types!
Reclaiming the American Right: The Lost Legacy of the Conservative Movement, Justin Raimondo’s excellent story of the origins of the American Old Right opposition to Great Dictator Roosevelt’s New Deal and dastardly plot to get the U.S. into WWII, its marginalization at the hands of the vile William F. Buckley Jr. and the return of Old Right libertarianism in our time is being reissued by ISI Books. It tells the stories of all the leaders of the Old Right and of the ex-communists who infiltrated the movement and turned it into nothing but a mob of support for belligerent nationalism and imperialism.
Says Ron Paul:
“When I was deciding whether or not to run for President as a Republican, I re-read Justin Raimondo’s Reclaiming the American Right and it gave me hope â€“ that the anti-interventionist, pro-liberty Old Right, which had once dominated the party, could and would rise again. Here is living history: the story of an intellectual and political tradition that my campaign invoked and reawakened. This prescient book, written in 1993, could not be more relevant today.”
Update: William F. Buckley is dead.
Antiwar.com’s Justin Raimondo discusses Dr. Ron Paul’s performance in the second GOP presidential debate May 15th, what it reveals about the corruption of the Republican Party and the American people, Homeland Security, the totalitarian impulse of Rudolph Giuliani, and the vile Washington Post‘s ulterior motive in trashing the antiwar candidates.
Justin Raimondo discusses the failures of the American media, warmongers who misleadingly identify themselves as libertarians, the threat of war with Iran and the upcoming trial of AIPAC’s Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman for espionage.
Justin Raimondo explains the strange ideological journey of the neoconservatives from left-wing crazies to right-wing crazies, his take on the situation in Iraq and the possibility of war with Iran and the crazies grudge against Russia.
