Can Tillerson Referee The Qatar/Saudi Crisis?

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson walked away from the Middle East empty-handed this week, as his efforts to mediate the Qatar/Saudi crisis failed to bear fruit. The dispute is the most serious between the two sides in some time, but how much of it was brought on by the meeting in May between a new and very aggressive heir to the Saudi throne and President Donald Trump? Both are very aggressive toward Iran, and the conflict is being framed in pro- versus anti-Iran terms. Where do things go? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Mosul: Another 'Mission Accomplished'

From February to June, an estimated 5,800 civilians have been killed in Mosul by US coalition airstrikes, a significant escalation in civilian deaths over the previous US Administration. With Mosul now "liberated" by US and Iraqi military forces, there is virtually nothing left of the city. Now we are told that we have to spend more billions of dollars rebuilding the city that we just destroyed, and once again training new Iraqi military forces to make up for all those killed in this campaign. Does this sound like a sensible US foreign policy? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Back To Benghazi - Are More US Troops The Answer?

The Obama Administration's lies (crafted mostly by Hillary Clinton) to "justify" a US attack on Libya were grotesque and the "liberation" of that country created a living hell on earth for the very citizens we were supposed to be saving. After six years of chaos and a 2012 attack on a US installation in Benghazi, the Trump Administration is reportedly preparing a policy shift on Libya that will bring permanently-stationed US troops into the country. How does yet another overseas US military mission square with President Trump's campaign promise to put America first? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Partial Syria Ceasefire (Again). Who's Winning, Trump Or Putin?

There is plenty to be positive about coming from last week's face-to-face meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin. One indicator of how important/well the meeting went was the fact that the mainstream media immediately reverted to its "Russia hacked the election" obsession, even as the pillars of that absurd assertion fall, one by one. The agreement on ceasefire zones in parts of southwest Syria are also a positive sign if it means the US and Russia are taking a step back from direct confrontation in that country. However, there are pitfalls. Will it mean more US military involvement in Syria, guarding these new zones? And one simple trick Trump can use to get the "Russia hacked the election" off his back. This and more in today's Liberty Report...

Trump Meets Putin - Who Has the Upper Hand?

Today, just one day before his long-anticipated meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, President Trump has given a fiery speech in Poland denouncing Russian "meddling" in Ukraine and Russian support for the Syrian government. He also affirmed that the US would "stand firmly behind" NATO's Article 5 on mutual defense. What might this mean for tomorrow's meeting? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Let South Korea Be South Korea

President Trump has taken to Twitter again to condemn North Korea's July 4th ballistic missile test and to chide China for not "putting a heavy move" on North Korea. China has blasted back that tensions are liable to spin out of control if all parties are not more careful. Meanwhile, South Koreans have a new president who claims to be more in favor of dialogue with the North than confrontation. Why won't the US let him give diplomacy a chance? If, as polls show, 80 percent of South Koreans want more dialogue with the North, why should we get in the way? Tune in today's Liberty Report:

Many things have gone wrong since then...but in many areas we have made progress! In today's Liberty Report, Ron Paul breaks down where we are some 241 years after that fateful day...

Trump Appoints Himself Chicago Police Chief

Will 40 more armed federal agents working in Chicago be able to stop the bloodbath in the streets? That is what President Trump has sent in, calling it an anti-gun violence "strike force." We're not sure more police and more agents are the solution. Maybe there is another way...

Is Civil War Coming To Saudi Arabia?

What does Saudi King Salman's surprising succession shake-up earlier this month tell us about stability in the kingdom? Perhaps more than we might think. The new crown prince, bin Salman, is the warhawk architect of the genocidal war on Yemen and the strange blockade of Qatar. The young crown prince is very close to the Trump family and is very well-regarded in Israel. And he hates Iran. Will internal unrest over a failing economy and foreign military adventurism spell doom for young bin Salman? We look at the evidence in today's Liberty Report...
