Is your favorite news site REALLY conservative? Or is it Neocon?
by Don Hank
There is a good chance that those “conservative” sites you read are not actually conservative but instead are Neocon or a combination of Neocon and Libertarian. Let me put it bluntly: Neoconservative is roughly the diametric opposite of conservative, as explained here.
You will remember my article Has WND gone full-bore Neocon?, which shows how WND grotesquely distorted a NYT report on a member of the Russian public who posted, possible in a blog, that Romania could be reduced to a “smoldering ruin” if there were a confrontation between that country and Russia. WND falsely reported that his quote came from a Russian official.
Now you know that first of all, I would never have made such a mistake. But more importantly, if I had, I would have printed a retraction and an apology as soon as I learned of my error. That was how decent journalists behaved back when there was an ounce of decency left in the profession. But you can no longer call it a profession, more of a money grab.
By way of an update, let me tell you that shortly after my article appeared, a reader advised me that WND had removed that article like a thief in the night.
No apology, no retraction, just a surgical removal.
Recently, our friend Julio Severo wrote an article exposing certain Neocons posing as conservatives. He sent it to Free Republic and it is still archived at that site. You can read it here: http://archive.is/Qn6Iq
Julio writes to his readers:
I published my article on Cliff Kincaid in the conservative website Free Republic. See a copy saved here: http://archive.is/Qn6Iq
Now Free Republic has banned me. See my Free Republic account as saved here: http://archive.is/Z4MS1
I had been publishing my articles on Free Republic since 2008, and only now I saw that they are partners with Cliff Kincaid.
Free Republic says that they advocate FREE SPEECH from a conservative viewpoint, but they killed the free speech of a Brazilian conservative writer who used no dirty language [the way Olavo de Carvalho does, for example, as described here – Don] and no personal attack to talk about Kincaid and his ideas.
I told Julio his article on Kincaid was still up at the Free Republic archives and that there were a lot of comments, all agreeing with him and mostly mocking Kincaid.
“They banned me yesterday, immediately after I published about Kincaid. I called them [on the phone] because they called me a ‘troll,’ but I explained that I am not a troll and that I am a Brazilian writer, but they did not care. They only answered to me “GOOD BYE!” and hung up the telephone.

I wrote back:
Neocons are the real trolls. They pretend to be conservative and post on conservative issues, but hate the truth when you point out facts that they want covered up.
I warned my readers of this evil ideology here:
You need to read that to understand the enemy.
All Russia bashers are Neocons. Most of them write for money. Kincaid’s group has received millions in donations.
This site details the source of Kincaid’s funding (ie, for Accuracy in Media”):
“A minimum of eight separate oil companies are known to have been contributors in the early 80s. Only three donors of the remainder[clarification needed] are given by name: the Allied Educational Foundation (founded and chaired by George Barasch), Shelby Cullom Davis, and billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife. Scaife gave $2 million to Accuracy in Media between 1977 and 1997.”
With this kind of funding coming in, you don’t need talent and you don’t need accuracy. In fact, you can be a liar and a drooling idiot. All you need is slavish obedience to your funding sources.
And who are these funding sources?
Shellby Cullom Davis, is affiliated with the Heritage Foundation, which claims to be conservative but somehow, according to this site:
“The health insurance mandate in the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is an idea hatched in 1989 by Stuart M. Butler at Heritage in a publication titled “Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans”. This was also the model for Mitt Romney‘s health care plan in Massachusetts.”
According to wikipedia, Richard Mellon Scaife, who gave Kincaid’s AIM $2 million, was affiliated with the Center for Strategic International Studies (CSIS), aptly described as Neoconservative and having on its board such notable Neocons as Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski. One of its board members is or was Carla Anderson, listed as the Chairwoman of the CFR – the New World Order flagship that wants all borders eliminated ASAP.
Oh, and Scaife also funded WND. Are you connecting the dots?
So Kincaid can pretend to be conservative, but the Neocon label is stuck to him like glue.
Below is my spoof on Kincaid’s silly comments on Donald Trump, suggesting Trump has some sort of sinister relationship with the Kremlin:
OMG, Wait ’til you read THIS! The smoking gun for sure!:
No WONDER Donald Trump is being nice to Putin. He sinisterly wants to build a hotel in Moscow.
Another building contractor running for president just so he can get a contract in Moscow. Why do they keep doing this?
I don’t know about you but I am very disappointed.
After this revealing article by the gifted researcher Cliff Kincaid, we now KNOW that Trump will be sinisterly trading away all of the Pentagon’s top secret secrets in exchange for the sinister Moscow Trump Tower contract, don’t we?
What’s that you say? Guccifer ALREADY gave away our top secret secrets to Russia?
Oh, ok. Never mind.
Just the same, I really thought Donald Trump wanted to make America great again. But now it looks like he only has sinister plans to make Russian tourism great. Again…?
Mr. Kincaid is a GENIUS to have figured this sinister intrigue all out.
Now what does America do?
Wait, you say if Trump builds the Moscow hotel, that would bring money into the US instead of the other way around?
Oh, ok. Never mind.
But here is what Cliffy’s article also suggests, and boy you tell me this is not sinister: The article suggests, I think, that Trump is angling for Putin’s job. He no doubt has sinister plans to become the president of Russia so that, as a prestigious representative of not one but TWO world powers, he can build Trump Towers all over the world, including North Korea (I bet that’s the main target and Cliffy would no doubt agree)! Or at the very least, he could become the chief bellhop at Trump Tower Moscow.
At the very sinister least!
Cliffy’s message to America: Vote for Hillary!
PS: I know some of you are wondering why I would devote any time to this stuff (like I did here – which is why Cliffy is not very fond of me). However, I learned long ago that reading Neocon writings is therapeutic. Dealing in real world issues can be depressing and stressful. This is my way of escaping. Thank you, Cliffy!
Yes, Folks, some lame-brained billionaire paid Cliff $2 million to share this kind of “insight” with the world.
