They are already crawling out from the political sewers and rathskellers of Washington. Neo-conservatives, who launched the “Anyone But Trump” campaign, are now trying to make nice with President-elect Donald Trump. These bottom feeders will attempt, in typical neocon fashion, to infect the Trump administration, much as they had done with President-elect Ronald Reagan in November 1980. This ilk crafted the Iran-contra scandal that almost resulted in Reagan’s impeachment. The granddaddy of neocons, Henry Kissinger, worked secretly to undermine President Richard Nixon. Trump should be on guard against attempts by the chameleon-like neocons to ingratiate themselves to Trump.
Weekly Standard editor William Kristol is a case in point. Kristol was the brains behind the independent president candidacy of Mormon ex-CIA agent Evan McMullin, who went down to defeat in Utah. The Kristol-McMullin subterfuge failed miserably and Trump should never forget what he said about this political chicanery by the neocons. Trump told Fox News last month, “you have a guy named Bill Kristol who’s called it wrong for two years. He’s a loser. He’s called me wrong. He’s called everything wrong. He’s called the wars wrong . . . Everything he does is wrong. He gets his puppet [McMullin] to go and run in Utah.” Hopefully, Trump will remember what perfidy the neocons hatched to deny him the White House.
But it is not merely Kristol that Trump should guard against. By formally seizing control of the GOP from the Bush family, this Wall Street-connected crime family will be more dangerous to Trump than the vanquished Clinton crime family. Everything the Clintons learned about racketeering and brutal politics was learned from the Bushes at a little airfield in Arkansas called Mena.
The American people voted to repudiate the Bush family. And President-elect Trump is obviously aware, somewhat, of the ties between JFK assassin Lee Oswald and Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s Cuban papa Rafael Cruz. Trump must also be aware that Rafael, the Texas and Louisiana oil man, was part of a CIA operation that included Zapata Oil’s George H. W. Bush. In promising to “drain the swamp” in Washington, Trump is in a position to expose all the dirty dealings of the neocons, the Bush and Clinton crime families, the CIA, and others. That cannot be done if Trump invites these parasites into his administration to craft policies and call important shots on foreign policy, intelligence, and defense. The neocon political parasite is only capable of destroying its host, whether Reagan, Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, or, if he is not wary, Donald Trump.
