US Quits UN Human Rights Council - Should We Cheer?

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the US would leave the UN Human Rights Council because it was too biased against Israel and too resistant to reform. By "reform" she likely meant it would not sufficiently bow to US demands. American neocons have done an about-face when it comes to the UN -- they like it when it provides a fig-leaf for their interventionist policies. So should we cheer the US leaving the Council? Yes, but for very different reasons than the Nikki Haleys of the world are cheering. For more on why we should be cautious, tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Bombs Away! US Airstrikes Every 12 Minutes?

President Trump is dropping bombs at a record pace. Even though the US is technically not at war, in the first year of the Trump Administration some 44,000 bombs were dropped overseas. In the entire eight years of the Bush Administration 70,000 bombs were dropped and under eight years of "Peace President" Obama 100,000 were dropped. Trump looks to break the record. With so much attention paid to children being taken from their parents, why no attention to how many kids overseas are permanently taken from their parents by US bombs?

Border 'Crisis' - Is It All About The Children...Or Hatred Of Trump?

Demagogues on both sides are using the border "crisis" to score political points, both for and against President Trump. The real issues -- the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms -- are rarely debated on the mainstream media and in the halls of Congress. Drug war? Interventionist foreign policy? Welfare state? Government's undermining of the family? Tune in to the Liberty Report for a different perspective...

The Final Frontier? Trump's Pricey Plan For A New Space Force

President Trump surprised his audience at the National Space Council yesterday when he announced that he would create a new "Space Force" to be "separate but equal" to the US Air Force. Congress must act to create a new branch of military service, but will the power of the military lobbyists win the day? Is "dominating" space really a matter of critical national security, as Trump claimed, or is this another costly boondoggle? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Did Washington Just Bomb Syrian Government Troops?

The State Department has warned the Syrian government not to liberate territory in the southwest of the country from the hold of ISIS and al-Qaeda, but the Syrian government has persisted in building up troops for a liberation. This morning, a mysterious attack on Syrian troops has killed some 52 persons. The Syrians are blaming Washington for the attack? The Pentagon has denied it. Who to believe?

RPI Peace and Prosperity 2018 Conference: Media & War!

The third annual Ron Paul Institute Washington, DC, Peace and Prosperity Conference includes a special focus on the symbiosis between the mainstream media and the warfare state. How does the mainstream media promote war and how does the war machine promote the mainstream media? How do the militarist interventionists collude with the mainstream media to prevent alternative media from having a voice? Remember "PropOrNot"? The Atlancic Council? "Hamilton 68"? How does the US government misuse its citizens' money to propgandize them into supporting endless, winless, pointless wars? To propagandize them into viewing any alternative media questioning the permanent warfare state as "unpatriotic" or even "agents of a foreign power"?

US Missiles To Germany - Defense Or Warmongering?

Rumors continue to spread that the US is preparing to deploy its THAAD anti-missile system in Germany for the first time. What's the threat? Iran, we are told. Particularly as the US pulling out of the deal has increased tensions. But is this really about defense of Europe, as the US military claims, or is it more about keeping the big US defense contractors fat and happy? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

US Commander in Europe: We Need More Troops to Fight The Russians

US Commander of the Europe Command, Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, has called for thousands more US troops to "deter Russian aggression" in Europe. He has even suggested that the US troops should be pulled off of counter-terrorism duty and sent to Europe. Meanwhile, the Pentagon announced a massive shipment of military equipment to Europe, including tanks and other tracked vehicles. Do US military officials really believe that Russia is about to invade western Europe? Are we back in the 1940s? Or is Washington's military-industrial complex looking for new ways to justify an ever-expanding military budget? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

In Korea, Kim And Moon Embrace - No Need For Outsiders?

It looks like the neocons may not succeed with their plot to blow up the Trump/Kim meeting next month. With Trump canceling the meeting at the end of last week, the North and South Korean leaders held an impromptu meeting on the border to look for a path ahead toward peace. President Trump has taken notice and plans are again underway for the historic meeting. Are neocons sidelined for now? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...
