A New European Superstate Is Hardly The Answer

If the UK actually succeeds in exiting the EU, what will be the fate of the remaining members? According to a report yesterday, the French and Germans are looking to create what would essentially be a single European "superstate" that would put an end to national sovereignty. Will this idea fly with the 27 remaining members? We take a look at the post-Brexit landscape in today's Liberty Report...

Brexit: Truth And Consequences

European and US markets are shaky in the wake of the historic UK vote to leave the EU. The neocons are warning that the vote will weaken Europe and thus embolden Russia. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the UK vote result makes strengthening NATO more critical than ever. The US media has tried to portray the vote as a victory for Russian president Vladimir Putin. One hack even said of the vote to leave, “[t]hey are drinking copious amounts of vodka in the Kremlin today.” In today's Liberty Report we try to look past the hype at what the real ramifications of the vote might be in the shorter term and longer term...

BREXIT: Boon Or Bust For UK?

Donald Tusk, a former Polish politician who now is the (unelected) President of the European Council, has warned that if the UK votes to leave the European Union it would be the "end of western political civilization." Others warn that taxes would increase for British citizens if they leave the EU. Still others worry about the future of NATO if other multinational entities like the EU begin unraveling. Polls suggest a surge in support for "Brexit" from the EU, but even if the people vote to leave, will the politicians bother to take their views into consideration? Looking at the future of Europe and "western political civilization" today in the Liberty Report:

Join us in September at the 'Peace and Prosperity 2016' Conference

Orlando: Was It LGBT, Radical Islam, Guns...Or Something Else?

Opponents of gun rights, including President Obama and Hillary Clinton, are using yesterday's tragic Orlando shooting to push their agenda, even though the nightclub was a "gun free zone." Meanwhile Republican politicians like House Speaker Paul Ryan are using the shooting to blame it all on "radical Islam." The federal government will likely use the tragedy to demand more resources, and the media will concentrate on the most salacious details of the attack on a 24/7 basis. Will all these special interests served by the killings, will anyone pause to ponder what was really behind them? What really motivated the shooter? We look into this today in the Liberty Report...

A Champion of Peace - The Walter Jones Interview

Some years ago, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) did the unthinkable in Washington: he admitted he was wrong and he determined to make amends for what he viewed as a great mistake. He believed the neocon lies about the danger Iraq posed to the US and he voted for the war back in 2002. Very soon he realized how he had been lied to and he dedicated himself to the cause of peace. He has since personally written more than 11,000 letters to the families of those killed or wounded in the wars. This year the neocons targeted him in his primary race, supporting a Republican challenger who would do as the neocons wished. Jones demolished the neocon last week and he already has big plans for the next Congress. The Liberty Report sits down with Rep. Jones on this very special edition to discuss what's next for the antiwar Republican (and Ron Paul Institute Board Member)...

Rep. Walter Jones - The Neocon Slayer

Bill Kristol of Neocon Central thought he had Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) in his sights. He backed a Republican primary challenger to the North Carolina antiwar Republican (and RPI Board Member) and brought on board the likes of Haley Barbour, Karl Rove, Ari Fleischer, and Sarah Palin. They huffed and they puffed but they could not blow the principled Walter Jones down. He not only beat their candidate, but he beat him by over 50 percentage points! More on what Jones' victory means in today's Liberty Report.

Playing With Fire: NATO Launches Massive Wargame In Russia's Backyard

Some 31,000 troops and thousands of military vehicles are taking part in NATO's "Operation Anakonda 2016" in Poland this week. It is the largest NATO operation since the end of the Cold War and it is taking place not far from Poland's border with Russia's Kaliningrad. US generals swear it is just a "defensive" exercise and there is nothing for Russia to be concerned over. How would the US feel about a similar Russian/Chinese military exercise in Mexico? We ponder this and more in today's Liberty Report...
