Obama and Hillary's Two-Minutes of Hate for Russia

President Obama claimed that Donald Trump's "flattery" of Russian president Putin is "unprecedented in American politics." But as RPI Board Member Lew Rockwell tells RT, there is nothing new about it. During the Cold War Americans were told they had to hate the Russians and the Chinese, that the Russians were coming. The latest bashing, however, is "despicable, warmongering, narcissistic, and dangerous, says Lew Rockwell. Now Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Barack Obama are "actually threatening nuclear war," he said. We are supposed to hate the guts of Russia and China, he added, but "it's not a good idea from a religious, or political, or foreign policy standpoint to hate the guts of other countries. Like George Washington said in his farewell speech, we want to be friends with everyone who wants to be friends with us, trade with everyone, not be belligerent," he said.

Are The Russians Rigging Our Elections?

In last night's presidential debate, Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton accused the Russians of manipulating the US electoral system to get Republican candidate Donald Trump elected president. She claimed:
We have 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military, who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyberattacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin, and they are designed to influence our election.
She went on to say that if elected, Trump would be "Putin's puppet." In other words, that the president of the United States would be an agent of a foreign power. Is there any truth to the claim? You might be surprised how much we learn when delving into foreign manipulation of elections. Join us in today's Liberty Report...

Trump/Clinton Final Debate: Questions We Would Ask

Despite the salacious coverage in the media of sex, lying, corruption, etc., there are actually some important issues we face for the future that we are not hearing in the presidential campaigns. What do the major candidates have to say about the military budget? About the drug war? About executive branch power grabs? Not much. We're not expecting a sudden focus on the real issues in tonight's debate so we are going to ask the questions that should be asked tonight but probably won't...in today's Liberty Report...

Battle For Mosul: Not False Flag, False Hope!

The US mainstream media is falling all over itself telling us how critical it is to attack Mosul, Iraq. The city of a million inhabitants has been under ISIS control for the past two years and the fight against ISIS will get a major boost if the terrorist group is expelled. How funny that the media sings a radically different tune when it comes to another town also under siege by terrorists. Aleppo in Syria has been held by al-Qaeda terrorists for twice as long as Mosul has been held by ISIS terrorists, but while the New York Times screams that no human cost is too great to liberate Mosul they at the same time accuse the Syrian government and its allies of wantonly slaughtering civilians in Aleppo. How to explain? The US mainstream media feels it is their duty not to report facts and dig up the truth behind government obfuscation, but to be complicit in government obfuscation of facts. A sad state. We look at the battle for Mosul in today's Liberty Report...

Russia-US Relations: Inevitable Clash?

Are cooler heads really in charge on both sides, or is the United States and Russia heading for a real clash over Syria? Ron Paul Institute Board Member Mark Almond joins RT's Crosstalk to explain why, as in the run up to World War I, we should look closely at how the media is ginning the people up for war...

FBI Comes Clean On Homegrown Terror

What motivates terrorists to attack the US and US targets overseas? US foreign policy primarily characterized by US bombs fired by drone into countries primarily in the Middle East. This has been Ron Paul's contention for years. Now we see that the FBI agrees. On today's Liberty Report we discuss a recent article about a leaked FBI internal counter-terrorism study and its (not so) surprising conclusions. Will Washington listen to the work of its own agency and work to change its foreign policy?

Hillary's Public Vs. Private Positions - Deceit?

In a leaked 2013 speech by Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the candidate told the audience that it is necessary to take a public and a private position on each issue. It is an indication of the attitude of the elites, particularly the neocons, that the public cannot be told what their leaders are really up to on any issue. So the question is whether she had a "public" and "private" position on Syria? ISIS? Saudi Arabia? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Debate Round Two: Issues Vs. Character

Both presidential candidates spoke a good deal about Syria, Russia, Iran, Libya, and foreign policy in general. After they finished the exercise in mutual character assassination, that is. But which is more important, character or issues? And why are the candidates seemingly so ill-informed about basic aspects of the war in Syria? Bad advisors? Propaganda? We take a look at the second debate in today's Liberty Report...

Free Speech Victory: The 'Ron Paul' Sign Can Stay!

Are laws regulating how long you can keep up a political sign on your property a restriction of free speech? Texas businessman Michael Kleinman thought so after the state told him to remove his "Ron Paul 2012" sign after the election. According to Texas' "beautification" laws, political signs must be removed 10 days after an election and cannot go up more than 60 days before the election. Kleinman was fined by the state but he fought back. For four years. And this summer he finally won. We'll look at his story and free speech in today's Liberty Report...

VP Debate: Hawk Versus Hawk

Anyone hoping for a sign of change in US foreign policy was surely disappointed by last night's vice presidential candidate debate. Both Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence made their foreign agenda clear: war. From a no fly zone in Syria to punishing "aggressive" Russia, the only disagreement was how on who could be the most warlike. In today's Liberty Report we look at the vice presidency as an institution. It is more important than the "bucket of warm spit" as claimed by former US Vice President John Nance Garner. Eight US presidents have died in office, their vice presidents taking over for them. Significant figures like Theodore Roosevelt, LBJ, Harry Truman. What does it say that the two major party vice presidential candidates are so alike?
