Assassinations: Is This 'American Exceptionalism'?

A new US government whistleblower has come forward to share highly disturbing information about the US worldwide assassination program, deceptively called "targeted killing." Most of those killed with bombs fired from drones were not the intended targets, we learn, but they were classified as "enemies killed in action" anyway. Today's Liberty Report takes a look at this major new exposé of the US assassination policy -- is America losing its moral compass?

Obama's New War In Africa: Do We Need It?

The Obama Administration's disastrous invasion of Libya scattered well-armed jihadists throughout Africa and the Middle East, including to Syria and Cameroon. After emptying out Gaddafi's arsenals, these groups proceeded to spread their mayhem. Yesterday, President Obama announced that he was sending US troops into Cameroon to help defeat one of the groups who benefitted from the US-led intervention in Libya, the ISIS-affiliated Boko Haram. Today's Liberty Report look at whether another US intervention can solve the problems created by intervention in the first place...

MH-17 Final Report: Who Shot Down The Plane?

The long-awaited final report of the Dutch Safety Board on the 2014 shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH-17 over Ukraine came out yesterday, but it offered very little in terms of what actually happened. With the most powerful intelligence apparatus on earth, how is it that the US cannot bring forth evidence to back its claims about Russian responsibility? As Liberty Report guest, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern says today, it's not that the US does not have the information but rather that the evidence it has does not match the US propaganda line...

Syria Quagmire? Copyright Tyranny. Weird Politics. Around the World With Lew Rockwell

Why is the US trying to destroy Syria, the bulwark against jihadists and protector of the Middle East's Christians? Because, says Lew Rockwell in today's Liberty Report, like all empires the US pursues a divide and conquer strategy. More on Lew's take on Syria events as well as a look at the GOP presidential race thus far in today's Liberty Report...

Global Freedom Index: We're Number 20!

The Cato Institute and partners have released a new survey of global economic and civic freedom. The results are not too good for those who adhere to the philosophy of American Exceptionalism: the US is not even in the top 10 when it comes to economic and personal freedom. Despite the many problems with indexes of this kind -- we cannot agree with many of the criteria and others are skewed in one or another direction -- it is healthy to pause and look at our own deficiencies. Today's Ron Paul Liberty Report does just that...

Two Minutes of Hate For Belarus

undefined

With Belarusian president Aleksander Lukashenko elected to a fifth term in office on Sunday, the ritual western hate-fest against the former Soviet Republic shifts into high gear. 

The regular march of western journalists to Minsk to report on "Europe's last dictatorship," has already begun, with Buzzfeed's Max Seddon being neither the first nor the last. But like the others, he ticks all the right boxes that keep him in a rare paid journalism job these days.

In Buzzfeed's foray into foreign reporting, Seddon acknowledges that Lukashenko has the support of the majority of the population (in a democracy that translates to election victory), while absurdly asserting that, "experts say he is likely to continue falsifying the results anyway."

Who are these "experts"? Well, they are the US-backed NGOs, of course! Seddon cites Dzyanis Melyantsou at the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies (located in Lithuania) who asserts that falsifying election results are just a game for Belarus. If the leader of Kazakhstan gets 80 percent, Lukashenko must falsify to get 85% just to one-up his fellow dictator, says Melyantsou.

Neocons Demand Escalation in Syria

The neocons -- and their left-interventionist allies -- have been planning regime change in Syria since at least 2006. Last week's launch of Russian military strikes on ISIS and al-Qaeda at the request of the Syrian government has very quickly changed their plans. Now they are pushing President Obama to escalate, including directly against the Russians! Today's Liberty Report looks at the increasingly dangerous situation and takes apart some of the media lies...

Gun Violence - More Control Needed?

What do the recent school shooting in Oregon and the US bombing of a hospital in Afghanistan have in common? President Obama is taking advantage of one tragedy to push for more government control of our guns. The other tragedy shows us that what we really need is more control over government guns. More today in the Liberty Report...

On The Ropes: 60 % Don't Trust Media

According to a recent Gallup Poll survey, the majority of Americans do not trust the mainstream media. Among younger Americans the numbers for the MSM are even worse. According to the Washington Post, this is a "terrible thing" because it means publications like the Washington Post are less able to serve as "referees" guiding us through what we should think about events and what we dare not think. Today in a special edition of the Liberty Report, we look at the declining mainstream media and the alternatives...

Assad Must Go; Assad Must Stay. Who's Right?

With Russian planes bombing ISIS and al-Qaeda targets this week, the air traffic on a piece of land smaller than the state of Oregon is getting crowded. The danger of a tragic accident that could escalate in unknown directions is ever-greater. The US and its Gulf allies are warning the Russians against bombing the terrorists without also trying to overthrow Assad. Saudi Arabia is warning Russia against civilian casualties in Syria even as the Saudis have killed nearly 3,000 innocent Yemeni civilians over the past five months. US-paid NGOs are pumping out the anti-Russian propaganda. What could possibly go wrong? Today's Liberty Report is on the Syrian powder keg...
