Bill Kristol

In George Bush and his Marxist Handlers, an article in  The Spectator [ page 42 et seq on 5 November 2005 - a significant date for Parliament  and Guy FawkesJohn Laughland tells us that William Kristol is the son of Irving Kristol and one of America's most influential neocons. This is consistent with the Wikipedia's offering

The relevance of this is  that a Jewish subversive is at the heart of the American political machine manipulating American policy and doing it largely unrecognized by the peasant masses. Keeping the peasants ignorant is the first rule of subversion.

For the American comedian, see Billy Crystal.

William "Bill" Kristol (born December 23, 1952 in New York City) is an American neoconservative lobbyist. He is cast as a neoconservative for his passionate advocacy for Israel and strong advocacy for projecting American power and for a strong American presence in the Middle East. Starting with the 1991 Gulf War, he continuously called for the ousting of Saddam Hussein.

Kristol is the son of Irving Kristol, considered to be one of the founders of the neoconservative movement and Gertrude Himmelfarb, a Victorian scholar. Kristol graduated in 1970 from the Collegiate School, an elite preparatory school for boys located in Manhattan. In 1973 he received the B.A. from Harvard University graduating magna cum laude, and in 1979 the Ph.D. in political science, also from Harvard. During his first year of graduate school, Kristol was Alan Keyes' roommate; this is significant, because many years later, in 1988, Kristol would run Keyes' unsuccessful U.S. Senate campaign against Paul Sarbanes in Maryland. After teaching political philosophy and American politics at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Kristol went to work in government in 1985, serving as chief of staff to Education Secretary William J. Bennett during the Reagan Administration, and then as chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle under the first President Bush. Later he became the leader of the Project for the Republican Future.

After the Republican sweep of both houses of Congress in 1994, Kristol established along with neoconservative John Podhoretz and with financing from Rupert Murdoch, the conservative periodical The Weekly Standard. In 1997 he founded, with Robert Kagan, the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a movement credited in part for some of the foreign policy decisions of the Bush administration as evidenced by their 1998 letter to US President Bill Clinton advocating military action in Iraq to "protect our vital interests in the Gulf". He is also a member of the long-time conservative think tank the American Enterprise Institute from which the Bush administration has borrowed over two dozen members to fill various government offices and panels. Kristol is currently chairman of PNAC and editor of The Weekly Standard.

Kristol is a regular political contributor to the Fox News Channel.

In 2004, he wrote an op-ed strongly criticizing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. [1]

In 2005, Kristol caused controversy by praising President George W. Bush's second inaugural address without disclosing his role as a consultant to the writing of the speech. Kristol praised the speech highly as a commentator during FOX's coverage of the address, as well as in a Weekly Standard article, without diclosing his involvement in the speech either time.

Kristol was one of many conservatives to oppose George W. Bush's second Supreme Court nominee, Harriett Miers. He said of Miers: "I'm disappointed, depressed, and demoralized. [...] It is very hard to avoid the conclusion that President Bush flinched from a fight on constitutional philosophy. Miers is undoubtedly a decent and competent person. But her selection will unavoidably be judged as reflecting a combination of cronyism and capitulation on the part of the president".

He is a currently a visiting professor at Harvard College (his son is a Harvard freshman), where he is teaching a course in the school's Government Department entitled, "Intellectual Foundations of American Foreign Policy."

He is married to Susan Scheinberg and the couple have three children.
