Abolish The TSA As Soon As Possible. With Guest Jim Bovard

The Transportation Safety Administration gets away with what would be prosecuted as sexual assault if any of the rest of us did it. Yet Americans put up with the groping and downright punching of private parts because they still believe the TSA keeps them safe. And when the TSA's own Inspector General tests how "safe" they keep us? Mock bombs get through 80-95 percent of the time. And when their miserable job performance becomes public? They demand even more money. In today's Liberty Report -- on the busiest travel day of the year -- we demand the end of the anti-American TSA and a return to the Fourth Amendment of our Constitution!

War on ISIS - Whose Side Are We Really On?

On Sunday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said in a press conference that the US military would remain in Syria for the long haul, "as long as there are ISIS who want to fight" he said.

Kochs Spend Big On Foreign Policy Realism...Should Neocons Be Worried?

The neocon interventionists run Washington foreign policy.

While such a move is to be welcomed there is also danger, as "realism" and neocon interventionsm do not disagree fundamentally on principles but only on the application of those principles. Cautious optimism in today's Liberty Report...

All in all, however, there are more positives than negatives, as we discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Here's a prime example of the "do as we say, not as we do" that is the core of how the US government acts toward the rest of the world: In the same week that the the US Justice Department demanded that the Russian-backed RT America network register as a foreign propaganda entity or face arrest, the US State Department's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DNL) has announced that it is launching a program to massively interfere in NATO-partner Hungary's internal media.
