Why Did An American Hit Squad Kill Politicians In Yemen?

While Washington is in a frenzy over the apparent Saudi government murder of a Saudi Washington Post journalist, little attention is being paid to news that the United Arab Emirates hired an "guns for hire" company founded by an Israeli-American to assassinate members of a political party in Yemen. Pentagon and CIA trained special operations troops were used to carry out the assassinations, including a plan to blow up the party's headquarters building. While Russian involvement in our elections has yet to be proven, certainly blowing up a foreign political party headquarters and assassinating its leaders qualifies as election meddling. But it's Ok if we do it? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

The latest social media purge of hundreds of alternative news sites guarantees that we will be less informed.

With Nikki Haley Gone, Will Palestinians Get a Better Deal?

Nikki Haley may be on her way out, but the US Ambassador to the UN will certainly be remembered for her pro-Israel activism at the United Nations.

Is such a policy really in the United States national interest? Will Nikki's departure signal a change? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

The Real Reason We Should Break With The Saudis

Sudden concern in Washington over Saudi behavior is puzzling. But the disappearance of a Washington Post writer and the suspicion that the Saudi government is involved has led Washington and particularly the Senate and House to demand some answers. They didn't care much about Saudi involvement with terrorists in Syria or the evil Saudi war on Yemen. Should we break with the Saudis? Yes. Why? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

'Imminent Russian Threat'? Ukraine And NATO Launch Joint Military Exercises

"Clear Sky 2018" was launched yesterday in Ukraine, bringing in hundreds of NATO troops along with US fighter and transport planes. The large show of NATO military force on Russia's border is meant to send a message to "aggressive" Russia. But the ongoing conflict over eastern Ukraine is a leftover from Obama's disastrous 2014 coup that overthrew the elected government. President Trump appears to be continuing Obama's foolish policy.

'Operation Endless War'? 17 Years In Afghanistan

We have passed the 17 year mark on the Afghan war and the Taliban control more territory than they have at any time since the launch. So for trillions of dollars, thousands of deaths, and 17 years of US government effort, "victory" is no closer than at day one. Does President Trump want out? Perhaps. But his neocon advisors have other ideas...
