PNAC 2.0: DC Think Tanks Create New Cold War Tipping Point

On March 3rd, 2014 Abby Martin decided to speak her mind and express her disappointment regarding the Crimea media coverage from all sides of the spectrum live on her television show, Breaking The Set. The story went viral on the mainstream media, only because her show airs on Russian backed RT, and Russia had just stepped into the conflict following the coup in Ukraine. Immediately following this action, a cadre of younger thirty-something neoconservatives in the heart of Washington DC tried to smear Abby after discovering her political views. In addition to the distorted take-down attempts against her, they tried to hijack her stand and manipulate it into anti-Russian / pro-US propaganda.

As the godfather of neoconservatism, Irving Kristol blazed a trail. The progressive movement could use a figure like him.

Few intellectuals of the 20th century were the equal of Irving Kristol, who died today at age 89, in terms of political influence. His journey from left to right from the 1940s to the 1970s was one that many others would follow, but he blazed the trail.

In the 1930s, he was a Trotskyite. Many a history exists describing the circle of formidable Jewish intellectuals who studied at City College of New York in Harlem – Kristol, Sidney Hook, Alfred Kazin, Irving Howe and many others. In those days, tables at the cafeteria were divided between Stalinists and Trots. Debates were ferocious, but it was assumed that one was on the left.

CBS News publishes Weekly Standard column on "9/11 Generation"

When did it become CBS policy to reprint neocon propaganda pieces from The Weekly Standard?

The 9/11 Generation And History
Nov. 12, 2008(Weekly Standard) This column was written by Dean Barnett.

In the 1960s, history called the Baby Boomers. They didn't answer the phone.

Confronted with a generation-defining conflict, the cold war, the Boomers--those, at any rate, who came to be emblematic of their generation--took the opposite path from their parents during World War II. Sadly, the excesses of Woodstock became the face of the Boomers' response to their moment of challenge. War protests where agitated youths derided American soldiers as baby-killers added no luster to their image.

Few of the leading lights of that generation joined the military. Most calculated how they could avoid military service, and their attitude rippled through the rest of the century. In the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, military service didn't occur to most young people as an option, let alone a duty.

Apparently, Kristol is launching a fund raising campaign for the United Jewish Appeal.

War criminals should not be celebrated like this.

One of the most watched, discussed videos raises questions of activist tactics

Aaron Dykes/ Jones Report | October 6, 2006

A large group of activists confronted PNAC chairman William Kristol during a speaking engagement at the University of Texas held Tuesday. They sought to confront him on the Project for a New American Century's odd statement published in September 2000 that their recommendations for military escalation would be difficult to achieve failing a "catastrophic and catalyzing event" such as a "new Pearl Harbor."
