Will Gen. Kelly Re-Militarize The Drug War?

As head of the US Southern Command, Gen. John Kelly was in charge of the US military involvement in the drug war in Central and South America. He blames the liberalization of marijuana in some US states for the ongoing failure of the drug war, even though the drug war has drug on for decades and marijuana decriminalization is a very recent phenomenon. Will the general take his military approach to the drug war to his domestic position as the next Secretary of Homeland Security? We look at the general and his views in today's Liberty Report...

After Libya, NATO Looks To Montenegro

NATO's desperate search for a purpose after the fall of the Soviet Union has left a swath of destruction through places like Libya, which it "liberated" nearly six years ago. Now NATO wants to take in tiny Montenegro, a corrupt, poor, Balkan statelet with a total of 2,000 troops. The reason? To further provoke Russia and to open the door to more NATO expansion perhaps to Georgia, Moldova, and even Ukraine. This week the US Senate will vote on Montenegro's NATO membership. Will president-elect Trump ask them to hold off on this ill-advised move? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Gen. Mattis: Can Trump Leash His Pentagon 'Mad Dog'?

Gen. James "Mad Dog" Mattis will make his way from the board of directors of major defense contractor General Dynamics back to the Pentagon as Defense Secretary under incoming president Donald Trump. Like his predecessor, current Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Mattis comes by way of the military-industrial complex. Unlike Carter he was a four star general in the US Marine Corps. Asked about the three biggest threats to the US, Gen. Mattis responded, "Iran, Iran, Iran." He is convinced that Iran and ISIS are in league together, a position not borne out by facts. Should we be concerned over a "mad dog" in charge of the Pentagon? More in today's Liberty Report...

Trump's Taiwan Call - What's The Motive?

The telephone call between president-elect Donald Trump and Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen created quite a buzz over the weekend. It appears that it was not a spontaneous mutual congratulations call, as first reported, but rather a project long in the works among Trump's more China-hawkish advisors. If the message to China over the unprecedented telephone call was not clear, Trump's Tweetstorm afterward left little for the imagination. The incoming administration appears to intend to confront China. How strongly? To what end? To whose benefit? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

The End Of Globalism - With Doug Casey

Are the alphabet soup international organizations like the IMF, UN, etc. about to go by way of the horse and buggy? Likewise, is the nation-state, where "patriotism" is tied to nothing more than the geographic accident of one's birth? And is the "deep state" really a threat? Famed investor Doug Casey and his associate, Nick Giambruno of International Man, join today's Liberty Report from Argentina with their take...

The Coming Fall Of Aleppo: Victory For Whom?

Over the past week, the Syrian military has re-taken more than 40 percent of the territory in east Aleppo that had for several years been controlled by the rebels. Most believe that this last large population center not controlled by the government will soon return to government control. After this, the nearly six year insurgency would likely soon be completely defeated. Meanwhile Secretary of State John Kerry is reportedly desperately attempting to make an agreement with the Russian government to halt the Syrian army advance into rebel-held east Aleppo. The Obama Administration fears a new US policy toward Syria would be launched by the incoming Trump Administration and is eager to preserve a flicker of the regime-change project in Syria. What happens next? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

More Fake News: Who's On The Washington Post Blacklist?

Though its main source remains anonymous, the Washington Post claims to have uncovered a vast conspiracy of more than 200 alternative news outlets -- such as the Drudge Report, Zero Hedge, the Ron Paul Institute, and others -- who have worked as Russian propaganda tools to defeat Hillary Clinton and elect Donald Trump as the next president. Kooky...or dangerous? Our take in today's Liberty Report...

Ron Paul Rewind: Ron Paul on Julian Assange

In the smoke of Washington's transition battle there remains the issue of Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange. What is to become of him? Will the US still seek to put him on trial for blowing the whistle on the illegal and immoral activities of the Obama and Bush Administrations? Turn back the clock to 2010 when Wikileaks first appeared on the scene and one-by-one Members of Congress called for Assange's head. US Rep Ron Paul saw clearly the value of the organization and stood on the Floor of Congress to defend all the whistleblowers. Since then he has consistently championed those who shine the light on the activities our government would rather keep in the shadows. Watch Ron Paul's historic 2010 speech...
