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? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

'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?

Today's appearance of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller before the House Judiciary Committee to discuss his report on Trump Campaign collusion with the Russian government may be a last ditch effort to make the election all about impeachment proceedings against the president.

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?"

Will 500 Troops To Saudi Arabia Really Make Us Safer?

The media is reporting today that the US will send 500 troops to Saudi Arabia to confront the Iran "threat" to the region. Just over a decade ago the US pulled its troops out of Saudi Arabia after acknowledging what Bin Laden had said about his motivation for the 9/11 attack: US troops on Saudi soil. Is it really a good idea to put troops back in? Watch today's Liberty Report...

Showdown! Trump Takes On Turkey Over Russian Missile Purchase

Turkey's decision to purchase a Russian-made missile defense system has led the Trump Administration to cancel its planned sale of 100 F-35 fighters to Turkey. Also under a 2017 law to punish Russia for "meddling" in US elections, Trump will be obligated to apply sanctions to Turkey - a NATO ally! Watch today's Liberty Report...

Forever Wars! House Republicans Furious Over Iraq War Authorization Repeal

House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) told Fox News over the weekend that the repeal of the 2001 war authorization after 9/11 and the 2002 war authorization for Iraq would "illegalize" the entire war on terror. How does retaining permission to attack Iraq and Afghanistan permit the "war on terror"? Today in the Liberty Report...

Fake News? CNN Claims Iran Tried To Seize UK Tanker

Yesterday CNN was the sole source of an article accusing Iran's Revolutionary Guard of trying to seize a UK tanker in the Persian Gulf. Though CNN claimed there was video of the attempt, none has surfaced. Iran strongly denies any such attempt. Is this another psy-op to drum up support for a US attack on Iran? Bonus topic: A new Pew Poll shows that US military members do not believe recent wars have been "worth it." Maybe we should listen to them. Watch today's Liberty Report...
