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.

Calling McCain a bozo is an unfair insult to the clowns! Good on Rand for calling him out

John McCain has it in for President Trump.  He has in public consistently proclaimed his disdain for the president.  It is hard not to ask, "what's his problem?"

By any objective measure, Big Media has ganged up on Trump.  So The Donald has asked Congress to write laws outlawing the press.  Due to this flagrant anti-constitutional initiative, the ever heroic Senator McCain has come to the defense of our civic order.
"They get started by suppressing free press, in other words, a consolidation of power -- when you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press," McCain said. "And I'm not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I'm just saying we need to learn the lessons of history."
The only problem is, Trump did not ask congress to suppress free press.  The sniveling MCCain was responding to Trump's tweet

  1. The FAKE NEWS media (failing , , , , ) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!
  2. The Donald is stating an opinion and hardly smashing the presses.  The Arizona Senator was being cute.
Trump was not The Neutralist's candidate.  We preferred Rand Paul.  Actually, our heart will always be with his dad and Rand flipped the flop a bit before he exited the primary campaign.  One thing he has though, is John McCain's number.

Senator Paul said on a TV appearance we are “very lucky” that Trump is president and not McCain,
Heck, even though Obama turned out to be a drone warrior, we are lucky that McCain did not beat even him.
Rand says McCain has  a “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy.
 “Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he’s got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain’s the guy who’s advocated for war everywhere,” Paul said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“He would bankrupt the nation. We’re very lucky John McCain’s not in charge, because I think we’d be in perpetual war,” Paul added.
(Love ya, Rand, but if you haven't noticed, we are in perpetual war)
 “I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East,” Rand, also said.
“If you look at the map, there’s probably at least six different countries where John McCain has advocated for us having boots on the ground,”
Go Rand, you could step into your dad’s shoes someday if you keep this up.
There is more to the McCain problem, however.  On Boston Herald Radio last week, Massachusetts Congressman Bill Keating said,
John McCain certainly is one of the most knowledgeable foreign affairs people and particularly when it comes to Russia.  And he’s advancing this to what extent he’ll be able to do it I don’t know but he seems to me on the senate side a person that’s clearly putting partisan issues aside and dealing with the issue directly. 

Now Mr. Keating, like the rest of the Bay State delegation have not a non-partisan bone in their bodies.  We can translate what he said into English as , “I hate Trump and am willing to ally with someone I am not too keen on to do our dirty work.”

The Neutralist may be getting the nuances a little bit wrong, but it is close enough.

The real question is what drives McCain?

Is he just crazy?

Is he getting some instructions from Neocon Central?

What is going on in that head?

If you have an answer, Please let the Neutralist know.

To finish off, we have always wondered why people who were for the Iraq war are listened to by anyone.

That goes double for McCain.
