A Tipping Point for Liberty

How many of us does it take to move the US in a direction toward a more peaceful foreign policy and the restoration of civil liberties at home? Not as many as people might think. But what is critical is that we educate ourselves and then do our best to help educate others. Some of the drug decriminalization we are seeing today would be unheard of just a few years ago. People's opinion begins changing until a tipping point is reached, and then policy changes. RPI Senior Fellow Adam Dick joins the Liberty Report to discuss his new book, "A Tipping Point for Liberty," which points us in the right direction...

Can Bombs Win War on ISIS?

The US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq has dropped its 50,000th bomb recently, yet the end of the two-year effort is nowhere in sight. Meanwhile civilians are being killed by the hundreds by US bombs on Syria. Is that not also a form of terrorism and is it not generating blowback against Europe and the US? Both major presidential candidates talk of escalating the bombing campaigns in Iraq and Syria, but if that approach is not producing the desired result how will doing more of it result in a different outcome? We need an entirely new approach to the war on ISIS. Tune in to today's Liberty Report for our take...

28pages.org Founder Brian McGlinchey to Speak at RPI Conference!

We can make a difference! That is a main theme we are keeping in mind as we put together our "Peace and Prosperity 2016" conference in Washington, D.C. this September 10th. The pursuit of a peaceful foreign policy is a task we can all take up. Demanding transparency from the US government can produce results. This week the spotlight turned to one person who has helped prove this right: founder of 28pages.org, Brian McGlinchey.

The 28 Pages - Finally Revealed

After some 14 years of classification, the hidden 28 pages of the Senate 9/11 report were released last Friday -- not coincidentally the exact moment you release something when you don't want much press coverage. But the explosive revelations -- and even more explosive implications -- are now finally coming out. In today's Liberty Report we interview the individual who should take much credit for the release of these papers. Brian McGlinchey founded the group 28Pages.org to educate the population and to push for the release of the pages.

Millennials Are Facing Existential Crisis

According to Neil Howe and William Strauss's book The Fourth Turning (1997), the millennial generation (born 1982-2005) will face a severe economic, cultural, religious, or military crisis -- or all of the above -- as they slowly move into positions of societal leadership. They were influenced largely growing up in the immediate aftermath of the end of the Cold War, an era where the US was at first adrift and then slouched from a handful of interventions overseas into a state of permanent war. Is there a way to avoid the crisis that appears to be looming? Tune in to the Liberty Report for Dr. Paul's prescription...

Turkey Coup - Is It Over?

Three days after the mysterious Turkish coup that was put down almost instantly, Turkish president Erdogan has conducted massive purges of the judiciary and the military. He even referred to the coup as a "godsend" that would allow him to rid the government of those who are disloyal. The purges have focused attention in Washington and Brussels, where he is being warned that talks for EU membership -- and even existing NATO membership -- may be at risk if the government crackdown gets more serious. Is the US and EU bluffing? After all, Erdogan currently has nearly three million Syrian refugees on Turkish soil that he could send to Europe at any time. And closing the US base at Incirlik would create havoc for US "power projection" in the region. We examine these and more in today's Liberty Report...

Great News: Turks Closed US Incirlik Base

undefined

In the aftermath of the suspiciously ill-planned and ill-executed coup attempt in Turkey, the government of President Erdogan has shut down the US military base in Incirlik. According to Stars and Stripes, the Turkish government, after putting down the partial military revolt, has closed the airspace over the US base at Incirlik and has even turned off the power to the base. In response, the US has placed troops on base at the "highest force protection level."

The Turkish government has said that normal operations at Incirlik will resume once the "anti-coup operations end." Part of those "anti-coup operations," however, include a demand that the US turn over exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, currently living in Pennsylvania...

After Nice Attack - Round Up Usual Suspects?

Who benefits from attacks like we saw in Nice, France yesterday? The authoritarians never waste a minute exploiting these events to call for more restrictions on our liberties. Take away guns, monitor our phone calls, restrict our movement, censor the Internet. But the one thing they will never do is look at our foreign policy, to look at our unfair central banking system, to consider the damage of the drug war. Whether on the Right or the Left, authoritarians are hammers and all they see are nails. We are the nails. More on Nice attack and its aftermath in today's Liberty Report...

How Disinformation Feeds The War Machine

According to recent polls by both Pew and Gallup, when Americans understand the actual level of US military spending they by a large margin back a decrease. That is why we hear the constant refrain of politicians screeching about the need to "rebuild" the military and to spend a trillion dollars updating our nuclear weapons program. The media plays its part as well, broadcasting endless segments meant to ratchet up the fear factor. The "think tanks" funded by the military-industrial complex come out with papers laying out the case for US global domination. The US national security state is maintained through fear and propaganda, just like in the Soviet Union. Are we headed for a similar collapse? More today in the Liberty Report...

State Department Stonewalls On Syria Weapons

Why can't the State Department spokespersons give a straight answer when asked a clear and direct question by the media? And when they do give an answer why is it often such a bold-faced lie? Either it's "I cannot comment on that because there is an ongoing investigation" or "'no boots on the ground' in syria has never been our policy." When it comes to US transfers of weapons in Syria that are ending up in the hands of ISIS -- particularly when some have possibly been used recently to shoot down a Russian helicopter -- the US government needs to do more than cover up. We must demand the truth! That is what we are doing in today's Liberty Report...
