For The Children? Trump's Venezuela Blockade Multiplies The Misery

What gives Trump - or anyone - the moral authority to make such a move? Watch today's Liberty Report...

No, Tulsi Gabbard is NOT This Election's Ron Paul

undefined

When Buzzfeed's Rosie Gray contacted Dr. Paul yesterday for a comment for her latest piece, "Tulsi Gabbard Is This Election’s Ron Paul," Dr. Paul and I discussed what the article might look like and how his comment might be used (or mis-used). Knowing Gray as an obsessive "Russiagate" promoter and manic never-Trumper, my view was that she would distort any Ron Paul quote to make it look bad for Gabbard, who Gray and the rest of the establishment journalists despise.

Combatting Terrorism? US AFRICOM Is Making Terrorism WORSE!

Launched in 2007 as a force for good in Africa to fight terrorism and improve the humanitarian situation, the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) has by all measure failed in its mission despite spending billions. According to a recent Pentagon study, terrorism is actually increasing where AFRICOM is operating. Isn't it time to end this boondoggle? Watch today's Liberty Report...

Is Biden Worse Than Pompeo On North Korea?

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has repeatedly slammed President Trump over his ongoing diplomatic outreach to North Korea, claiming that the move just gives legitimacy to a dictator. He has been joined by several other Democratic candidates in this attack. Why are the Democrats trying to out-neocon even neocons like Pompeo when it comes to diplomacy versus war?

'Obliteration' - Trump Threatens Iran With Nuclear Strike

President Trump has threatened to "obliterate" parts of Iran if "anything American" is attacked by the country. This, combined with "all options on the table" clearly suggests the use of nuclear weapons. In an article in today's American Conservative, former US Marine and nuclear weapons inspector Scott Ritter shows how last year's US Nuclear Posture Review outlines scenarios that make this nightmare a possibility.

Is Today's Mueller Testimony The End...Or The Beginning Of Impeachment?

No More Wikileaks! Intelligence Authorization Bill Criminalizes Whistleblowers And Reporters

This year's Intelligence Authorization bill contains language drafted by the CIA itself designed to make it a criminal act to reveal the name of undercover agents whether stationed overseas or at home, whether working or retired. The measure is designed - in the CIA's own words - to prevent the kind of transparency that was provided by Wikileaks. It is a war on the free press! We have the details in today's Liberty Report...

US Pushing Allies To Send Warships Toward Iran

The latest neocon scheme is to push US allies to send warships to join a US-led mission to keep the Strait of Hormuz "free and clear" for shipping. In reality it is a trigger for war. Thus far the US has no takers for this clear escalation. Will Bolton's brigades begin peeling away EU hold-outs? The US is sending troops to Saudi Arabia and building up a massive airbase. Meanwhile, Iran claims to have broken up a CIA spy ring in country. War drums beating. Watch today's Liberty Report...

The Strange Death of Conservatism

undefined

You can tell that the establishment is getting nervous when in just the last month we see a grand effort to "re-invent" conservatism launched by the same kinds of ideologues who destroyed conservatism, and we see a new venture promising to promote a new foreign policy that turns away from "endless war and toward vigorous diplomacy in the pursuit of international peace" that just happens to be co-funded by an individual among those most responsible for pushing endless war and color revolutions overseas.

First, the much ballyhooed conference on "National Conservatism" this week brings to mind Pat Buchanan's seminal 1992 Republican convention speech when he spoke of radical Democrats pretending to be centrists as one of the greatest examples of cross-dressing in history. In this case, we have many of the old re-treads from the failed Republican administrations of the past (especially Dub-yuh's) telling us in ideological drag that they have an amazing new product to sell us called "we must fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here" and "what would we do without our greatest Middle East allies Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Turkey?"
