Pompeo Green-Lights More Saudi Slaughter In Yemen

On the very day we heard that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certified that the Saudi/UAE coalition was doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties in its war on Yemen, yet another Saudi airstrike hit a civilian bus and killed at least 15 people. Congressional efforts to address the unconstitutional US involvement in the Yemenn war have been toothless. The hypocrisy of US foreign policy is laid bare in Washington's Yemen policy.

Why Do The Palestinians Get Ripped Off?

This week the Trump Administration announced that the Palestinian Mission to the US would be closed. Earlier the Administration announced an end to US humanitarian assistance to Palestinian hospitals and an end to all US assistance. These moves do not save taxpayer money, however. They are meant to be punitive. The Palestinian leadership has opposed the US Embassy move to Jerusalem and its objections have been met with US punishment. Why does it seem they are getting ripped off? Is there a better way? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

What We Haven't Learned Since 9/11

Seventeen years after 9/11, we've spend $5.6 trillion in a "war on terror" that has left al-Qaeda "stronger than ever" (as in a recent LA Times article). Most of that war effort seems to have been directed against the American people, who these days cannot fly on a plane without a TSA sexual assault, cannot be secure in their papers and persons due to government spying, and cannot speak freely due to government censorship. Have we just gone completely off the rails this past 17 years? Can we right our course? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

More War Lies? 'Anonymous Sources' Claim Assad About To Use Gas

The Wall Street Journal tells us that an anonymous US Administration official claims the existence of secret intelligence showing that Syrian President Assad has already given the order to release chlorine gas in Idlib. The US stands by waiting to begin bombing. How strangely like the run-up to the Iraq war, with the "just trust us" evidence of Saddam's WMD. Will America fall for it again?

'Steady State' Or Deep State? New York Times' Hate-Driven Coup

The New York Times unleashed a firestorm by publishing an anonymously written op-ed from someone purporting to be a "senior US Administration official" and who writes of a secret cabal within the US government that conspires to thwart President Trump's agenda. Presented as a heroic "resistance" from within, many see it as the work of a dangerous and undemocratic "deep state." Is the "steady state," as the NYT anonymous writer terms it, really another word for the "deep state"? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

The Torture Of Assange: A Blight On The US Justice System

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been forced to spend nearly 3,000 days in solitary confinement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. His crime? He isn't charged with anything. But the neocons and warmongers in the US government want to put him in a box - or worse - for publishing government secrets. Wait...isn't that what all journalists do? Yes, that is what they are supposed to do. So isn't the persecution of Assange actually an attack on the free press? Yes. What can we do to help Assange? Our ideas in today's Liberty Report...

UN Sees War Crimes In Yemen...But Mattis Vows Continued War Support

A new UN report found possible war crimes committed in the three-plus Saudi-led war on Yemen. While the US has backed the war from the beginning, providing weapons and targeting, the Pentagon claims that its involvement is saving lives rather than taking them. Secretary of Defense Mattis has said that the US will continue to support the Saudis. What are the moral implications of being involved on the side of war crimes and torture?

South Korea Seeks Peace With North: Will US Sanction Seoul?

Are the neocons running circles around President Trump? His Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, has opposed the president's moves to open dialogue with North Korea from the get-go. Now he has managed to scuttle a visit to Pyongyang by showing Trump a letter from a North Korean official that is reported to be "belligerent." That was enough for Trump to cancel Pompeo's trip. Meanwhile, South Korea is pursuing good relations with the North regardless of US backtracking. Washington is reportedly considering sanctions on its South Korean ally if Seoul continues on a peace path with Pyongyang. More on this bizarre turn of events in today's Liberty Report...
