Is American Interventionism Driven by Feminism and Zionism?

One cannot help but ask that question reading Srdja Trifkovic's article on the "unholy neoliberal-neoconservative alliance," reminding us that "[t]here is precious little to choose between the scary triumvirate of Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power on the 'left,' and the AEI-Weekly Standard lumens on the 'right'" — The Liberal Hawks’ Neoconservative Allies. He explains:
    The neolib-neocon alliance is unsurprising, considering the two camps’ shared Marxist origins. The neoconservatives’ roots are somewhat older of the two, in the anti-Stalinist far left of the World War II era. The liberal hawks are the heirs of 1968 and the Frankfurt School. They share the dualist outlook that translates in policy terms into geopolitical militarism and inverted socialist internationalism.... Both the Clinton-Rice-Power clique and their neocon counterparts share an ideology of nationalist socialism and internationalist imperialism.

I've long suspected that American's lived on another planet, but perhaps another galaxy is more likely. Orwellian double-speak was confined to relatively simple concepts like "war is peace and peace is war", but to call the roots of the freemarket ideology of the neoliberals "Marxist" is simply evidence of insanity.

It's really not that insane, if we remember that "the freemarket ideology of the neoliberals" ain't at all free.

Blaming the lack of the global revolution that was supposed to occur with WWI, Gramsci postulated cultural Marxism, blaming the failure on the vestiges of Christianity and arguing that Western Culture must first be overthrown. The Frankfurt School in the US did much to shape the New Left, from which Hillary, Rice, and Powers hail.

Trotskyites rose to oppose the rise of Stalinism, and the Trotskyite roots of the founders of neoconservatism is well-documented.

With the fall of the Soviet Union, these factions came to see US hegemony as the last best hope for a global revolution that demolishes traditional cultures, with the Islamic world being the laboratory.

If we remember that Marx saw capitalism as the final stage before communism in his progressive view of history, one can see how the neolibs and neocons would resort to "democratic capitalism" to export the globalism.
