This was not expected.
While the GOP Establishment is up in arms and raiding the pockets of billionaire backers to stop Trump (with little impact), the Bush faction of neo-conservatives who brought us preemptive warfare in the form of the Iraq War are going on record to boldly state they would back Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.
Eliot Cohen, a former official with the Department of State under George W. Bush is leading the revolt and has organized an open letter of over 100 foreign policy “experts” to motivate political insiders of the Republican Party to do all they can to dump Trump.
Cohen went so far as to tell Politico, “Hillary is the lesser evil, by a large margin . . . [Trump would be] an unmitigated disaster of American foreign policy.”
Cohen was backed by a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Max Boot, who said, “I’m literally losing sleep over Donald Trump . . . She [Hillary] would be vastly preferable to Trump.”
Other signers of the letter organized by Cohen include Condoleezza Rice, Robert Zoellick and a “who’s who” gaggle of foreign policy experts.
The letter is a clear sign that Trump has ruffled the feathers of not just the GOP insiders but the actual government establishment that is typically silent on presidential elections.
These same signers have handed over massive trade advantages to China, Japan and Mexico while destabilizing the Middle East through foreign intervention and preemptive warfare under the false threat posed by weapons of mass destruction.
For these Bush appointees and general lackeys to come out in favor of Hillary Clinton gives the public a rare glimpse into the hearts and minds of neoconservatives.
They correctly realize that their days of influence are over in the event of a Trump presidency and the countless deals they have made with other nations, to the detriment of the American citizen, will be unraveled by a “reckless” Trump administration.
Rather than give an outsider like Donald Trump a chance, they would rather vote in a known, corrupt politician like Hillary Clinton who laughs off her responsibility to national security while still under investigation by the FBI.
Not only will Hillary prove to be a disaster in foreign relations, the nation will be held hostage by the Clinton’s proven record of massive corruption and hypocrisy.
For Cohen and his ilk to even consider elevating Hillary to the rank of POTUS is something that should never be forgotten as it will serve as the death knell of the neoconservative movement.
The word “neoconservative” will be unequivocally synonymous with “traitor.”
Of note is Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, who served as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. The CFR is a group of bankers, government officials and politicians who advance a globalist agenda.
