Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

The descent of Ben Stein

I suppose everyone has seen the Stein-Lee-Paul video from Larry King where Ben Stein's knee jerks into an inference of anti-semitism when Ron Paul says our foreign policy is a cause of blowback.

I have been reading Ben Stein for, I would guess, at least thirty years. He is a wit and not without wisdom. What he has done here is stain his soul. A man of talent and ability becoming old and sad in the misguided service of something he loves.

For a Jew to defend and support Israel is natural. That is something only an true anti-semite either does not understand or opposes because he does precisely realize it is valid. Israel, however, is not the United States and the United States is not Israel. We may at times have mutual interests and at times we may not. The Neutralist avers that trying to run the world is in the interest of neither. Calling someone an anti-semite over that is sad.

The Neutralist policy on Israel, as much as there is one, is here.

Sheila Jackson Lee appeared to only be there to say Obama is God. There is no comment necessary from the Neutralist.
