Trump Says 'No' To Catalan Independence

The Catalan push for independence from Spain appears to be part of a larger European -- and possibly worldwide -- movement away from larger, more distant governance and toward more local control. Elsewhere in Europe, the old order is slowly breaking down. New parties find success in German elections, Hungary continues to defy Brussels on immigration, talk of secession on all levels increases. Will the referendum in Catalonia take place as scheduled, or will the central government successfully crack down? Will a crack-down eliminate the growing demand for independence? What's the US position? More in today's Liberty Report...

Kurd Independence Vote - Progress Or Danger?

The US was strongly opposed to Monday's independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan, as were the countries in the region. The US wanted to manage the Kurds' relationship with Baghdad, but it did not work out the way Washington's planners hoped. How did we get to the point? To a large degree due to the US invasion of Iraq. Will the vote result in smaller government and more freedom for Kurds in the region? Or will it mean war? And what about oil flow?

Defense Secretary Mattis: US Cannot Survive On 'Puny' Military Budget

Defense Secretary Mattis is worried about the military budget. No, he's not worried that spending a total of more than a trillion dollars a year on the military might bankrupt the country and thus make us more vulnerable to outside forces with ill intent. He's worried that our very survival depends on even more money for the military and no more yearly budget "fights" on funding the military. Even though Congress gave him even more than he requested, he's worried. But what about the policy? What is the proper US role in the world a quarter of a century after the end of the Cold War? Some "realists" are longing for the days of the Cold War, where America ruled the roost. Today in the Liberty Report...

Trump's UN Speech: A Neocon Dream?

President Trump's speech yesterday at the United Nations got rave reviews from neocons like John Bolton and Elliot Abrams. The US president threatened North Korea, Venezuela, Syria, Yemen, and Iran.

President Trump To Unleash The CIA Drones

It's not only "the generals" that President Trump defers to when it comes to war overseas. He's also planning to defer to Mike Pompeo and the CIA when it comes to operating killer drones in the "theaters" of military operations. Where President Obama toward the end of his term was phasing out the CIA drone program -- partly because of the high civilian casualties -- President Trump is seeking to ramp up the program and loosen the terms of engagement. Count on many more civilian casualties, which creates many more terrorists, which fuels the perceived need for US military action abroad, and so on...

The Neocon Case Against The Iran Nuclear Deal - One Big Lie!

Why does President Trump listen to Nikki Haley and the neocons when it comes to Iran? Doesn't he know they are always wrong? Trump has been consistent in his animosity toward Iran and especially the Iran deal, but why? Haley claims that Iran gave up nothing for the deal, but that is just not true. Does Trump think the rest of the world is going to follow the US if the US pulls out of the agreement? Or if the US attacks Iran? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...
