Is FBI Lying About 'Russiagate'?

Are we supposed to believe that a critical five months of text messages between two plotting (and illicitly connected) anti-Trump FBI agents have disappeared due to technical errors? Much more likely -- and more commonly, as Jim Bovard points out in a recent Hill article -- it is the FBI manipulating evidence and destroying evidence to keep the public from knowing what they really are up to. In this case, it appears FBI agents were colluding with others in the US intelligence community to: 1) prevent Donald Trump from being elected president; and then 2) when that didn't work, to undermine him with baseless charges of foreign collusion in the hopes he would be removed from office. The story continues to unfold, but as it does the "Russiagate" narrative seems to be melting into a "FBI-gate" reality. More in today's Liberty Report...

Turkey Vs. Syrian Kurds: Whose Side Are We On?

With Ankara's recent military incursion into Syria to fight Afrin-based Kurdish forces, the US finds itself in a bizarre proxy war with its longtime NATO ally, Turkey. Turkish airplanes are literally taking off from the same airbase to bomb the Kurds as American planes are taking off from to arm the Kurds. US policy in Syria to create an autonomous Kurdish region to facilitate the continued (illegal) US military presence in the country is reckless and unsustainable. It is also absurd. For more on this strange state of affairs, tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Breaking - Tillerson Unveils 'New' US Syria Plan: 'Assad Must Go!'

undefined

Confirming that the US military presence inside Syria had little to do with fighting ISIS, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson unveiled in detail today the real US strategy for Syria: overthrow of the Assad government. In a speech at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and introduced by President George W. Bush's Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, Secretary Tillerson vowed that the United States military would continue to occupy Syrian territory until three conditions are met...

More US Bases In Syria...Why Not Come Home?

While ISIS has been defeated in Syria, the US military has no plans to leave the country. In fact, the Pentagon is building new, permanent military bases on Syrian soil. But the Syrians don't want American troops on their soil and it's pretty illegal to put your troops into another country without permission. So why stay? To "counter Iranian influence in the region." But how did Iran get so much influence in the region? The US invasion of Iraq and the US destabilization of Syria were a shot in the arm to Iran's influence in the region. So if US interventionism in the Middle East keeps making Iran stronger and the US claims to want Iran to be weaker, why does Washington keep intervening in the region? We try to sort it out in today's Liberty Report...

Trump To Embrace Nuclear First Strike

President Trump's Nuclear Posture Review, due next month, is expected to call for the development of new, "low yield" nuclear weapons and a lowering of the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons. Is the Pentagon still fighting the Cold War? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Who Killed Martin Luther King...And Why?

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s own closest advisors begged him to avoid focusing on the Vietnam war. It will alienate President Johnson, who is doing so much for the civil rights movement at home, they argued. MLK ignored them, vocally opposed the war, and found much of the liberal establishment had turned on him. Is that why he was assassinated? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

House Approves More FISA Spying...Can The Senate Stop Them?

Unfortunately the Amash Amendment to the FISA extension bill was defeated today and the extension itself passed with ease. What does it mean? The NSA and various US intelligence agencies can continue to collect your personal communications without a warrant and store them indefinitely. Thus foreign intelligence information is stored to be later used for law enforcement purposes. Completely unconstitutional. But there is not yet enough dedication to the Constitution and to liberty. We explain what's at stake and how the extension could still be halted in today's Liberty Report...

Trump To Embassies: Sell American Weapons!

President Trump is expected to direct US embassy staff overseas to more aggressively push the sales of US-manufactured military items to their foreign counterparts. His "National Security Decision Directive" due next month will reportedly also ease the rules and regulations for the export of military hardware. In today's Liberty Report we take a critical look at US taxpayer-funded salespeople for the US arms industry. Should middle class Americans, who have seen their real incomes decline over the years, really be subsidizing the sales force for large, wealthy corporations? And what of the danger of yet more weapons to get into the hands of bad actors overseas?

Korea Breakthrough Talks Today: Victory For Sports Diplomacy

Despite US Defense Secretary James Mattis' promises that North and South Korean talks today would be about only one subject, the Olympics, the North and South ended up after 12 hours of talks opening the door quite a bit wider between the two countries. In addition to the North sending a team to participate in the South Korean Winter Olympic games next month, the two countries agreed to continue meeting bilaterally in attempt to find ways to reduce military tension on the peninsula. President Trump has taken credit for the breakthrough talks taking place...does he have a point? Join us for today's Liberty Report...
