McCain's Nightmare - Dr. Kelli Ward For US Senate

When she fired back at Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the policies he has supported directly led to the rise of ISIS, Senate hopeful Dr. Kelli Ward set off alarm bells in interventionist circles. Sen. McCain's policy of backing every US war and incursion into the Middle East has helped spur the rise of ISIS and thereby made us all less safe, she explained. The interventionists want us to believe that they only support these foreign wars to keep us safe, but more and more Americans are coming to believe that they only make us weaker and more vulnerable. Dr. Ward joins us to talk foreign policy and civil liberties in today's Liberty Report...

Should The IMF Director Be Fired...And Does It Matter?

A recent report by the IMF's internal Independent Evaluation Office concluded that the organization had disregarded its own rules and regulation to support the European elites and the political aims of the European project. The Greeks were waterboarded with austerity measures while the German and French banks were bailed out. The IMF Managing Director faces trial in France for mismanagement when she was finance minister there. Why should we tolerate such a corrupt body making foreign policy and economic policy with no oversight? More in today's Liberty Report...

Libya War Escalates - Congress AWOL

The Obama Administration announced yesterday that it would begin a sustained bombing campaign against ISIS in Libya. The Administration said it was acting in response to a request by the Libyan "Government of National Accord," which was created by the UN rather than voted in by the Libyan people. Asked about the scope of this new US war on Libya, Pentagon Spokesman Peter Cook said, "We don't have an end point." Thus far Congress has been silent on this new war. We are not silent, however. Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Capt. Humayun Khan: Sacrifice Or Victim?

Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's team invited the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan, killed in Iraq in 2004, to speak at the convention and criticize Republican nominee Donald Trump's policy on Muslim immigration. It was a classic trap and Trump bumbled into it. The ensuing blow-up may have made great ratings for the media, but what is unsaid is that both sides agreed that Khan's death was a great sacrifice for our liberties and freedoms back home in the US. The media went along with this view. But being killed in a war started by government and media lies does not make one a heroic sacrifice. In fact, it makes on a victim. Khan was a victim of both Republicans and Democrats who supported the war in 2002 and he is victim again today.

Just Who Is The War Party?

As many neocons shift over to support Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, there are appearing a few bumps in the road. Last night at the convention, for example, former CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta found himself drowned out by chants of "no more war!" as he touted Hillary's hawkishness. There are insurgent antiwar factions in both major parties but the establishment is trying to minimize their power and influence. How long can the center hold? More today in the Liberty Report...

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...
