Pompeo Slaps On Major Russia Sanctions...Over Unproven UK Poisoning!

Is Pompeo launching a coup against his boss? By kicking in sanctions on Russia - invoking a 1991 US law on chemical weapons - the US State Department is further poisoning President Trump's efforts to improve relations with his Russian counterpart. If President Trump refuses to enforce the sanctions, he will hand a political gift to Democrats who believe their election fortunes in November rest on endlessly screaming "Russia, Russia, Russia." And what are these new sanctions all about? The totally unproven, full-of-holes claims that the Russian government was behind the Skripal "poisoning" in the UK in March. We untangle some of this madness in today's Liberty Report...

Senate Moves To Seize The Internet - Do We Need More Government Censorship?

Senator Mark Warner's (D-VA) office has drawn up a proposal for the US government to become much more involved in the Internet and particularly social media. They tell us for our own good they must protect us from "disinformation" and be able to determine the identity of each social media account as well as the user's location. Ironically - or not - this is pretty much what the Chinese government is doing with its social media and search engines. Is this the direction we should be heading? Is there a better solution?

Shocker: AP Reports On US/Al-Qaeda Coalition In Yemen

The independent press has long reported the seeming collusion between the US and al-Qaeda in the war on the Houthis in Yemen. Now the most mainstream of mainstream media outlets - AP - has concluded a blockbuster report that reaches the same findings.

New Sanctions Kick In: Trump Declares (Trade) War On Iran...And EU!

Starting tonight, US sanctions on Iran and anyone who does business will kick in. Did Iran attack someone? Threaten someone? No. President Trump has unilaterally pulled the US out of the nuclear agreement and now demands that all US allies follow suit and, de facto, abrogate the treaty. The Europeans are making a lot of noise, claiming that they will back up any EU businesses that remain in Iran. That won't hold. Brussels will cave. But no one seems to be thinking about unintended consequences. Who stands to benefit the most from Washington's obsession with regime change in Iran? China, which is already rapidly expanding its economic presence in Iran. More on this colossal Trump blunder in today's Liberty Report...

'President' Pompeo? Neocons Nix Trump/Rouhani Meeting

After a firey, all-caps Tweet warning Iran, President Trump did a 180 and said he'd meet with Iranian president Rouhani with no pre-conditions. Then his neocon Secretary of State Pompeo got wind of it and added a list of conditions to the meeting. Unsurprisingly, the Iranians balked at the offer. Is Trump in a box of his own making when it comes to his options on Iran? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:

War Is A Racket: After 17 Years and Billions Wasted, US Seeks Peace With Taliban

Last week, US State Department officials met with Taliban leaders in Qatar. At the request of the Taliban, the US-backed Afghan government was not invited. The officials discussed ceasefires and an end to the war. Meanwhile, the US inspector general charged with monitoring US spending on Afghanistan reconstruction has reported that since 2008, the US has completely wasted at the least $15.5 billion. He believes that's just the tip of the iceberg, though. Will President Trump do the smart thing and negotiate peace and leave? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:

Who Killed The Tea Party - How, Why, When?

Most in the liberty movement trace the birth of the "tea party" to the December, 2007 "money bomb" for Ron Paul's presidential campaign, where that commemoration of the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party raised $6 million for Paul and broke online fundraising records. But a more institutionalized "Tea Party" followed, with plenty of groups and politicians eager to jump on board with a movement combining grassroots excitement with fundraising prowess. But, as today's Liberty Report guest Matt Kibbe has written, the Tea Party is not totally dead. So what happened? Where to in the future? Is something new emerging?

According to a new poll by HarrisX Polling Company and The Hill newspaper, more than half of all Americans - and nearly 90 percent of Trump voters - support President Trump's invitation to his Russian counterpart to the US for another meeting.
