Comey Under The Gun: Truth-Telling...Or Just Politics?

Will the Comey Senate testimony put an end to the "Russiagate" scandal and the issue of whether President Trump will continue to be hobbled by suggestions he pressured the FBI to drop investigations? Don't count on it, but we break down today's explosive hearing in today's Liberty Report...

Russia: US-Declared 'De-Confliction Zone' In Syria Illegitimate

Yesterday marked the second time US military forces have attacked Syrian government-allied forces fighting ISIS inside Syria near the Iraqi border. The US government, which maintains an illegal base on Syrian soil, claims any Syrian encroachment within 50km of the facility will be met with US military force. The mostly Shia militia that the US attacked are the same groups fighting alongside the US in Iraq and in fact may Iraqi citizens allied with the Iraqi government (which the US is also allied with). Confusing yet? Add to this that the US Senate is passing new sanctions against Iran today for its completely legal ballistic missile program and to punish Iran for shipping weapons to militias in Syria fighting ISIS. We try to put it all together in today's Liberty Report...

London Attacks: Don't Blame Iran

UK Prime Minister Theresa May wants to blame YouTube for yesterday's deadly London attack. She thinks terrorism can be stopped by pushing the "superiority" of British values...and more bombs on the Middle East. President Trump wants to ban people from seven countries -- even though no one from those countries has killed Americans on US soil since the 1970s. Why is it that when they talk about terrorism, politicians can never admit the role our foreign policy plays?

Washington's War on Food is Making Us Sick!

You don't have to drink raw milk or buy your meat directly from the farmer to agree that others should have this right. After all, the right to choose what we put in our bodies is fundamental, even if the government feels it has the right to tell us what's "good" for us. On today's program we visit the front lines of the food freedom movement, with special guest, food liberty activist Liz Reitzig.

NSA Spying On Americans 'Widespread' - Let Sec. 702 Expire!

In October, 2016, the NSA was forced to admit that it had misused Sec. 702 of the FISA Amendments to spy on far more Americans than it should have. Even the normally very compliant FISA Court condemned the ramped up spying on Americans as raising serious Fourth Amendment issues. The NSA last month told us it would cease using Sec. 702 -- which is supposed to be for foreigners -- to spy in Americans. Should we trust the NSA to police itself? Today's Liberty Report urges that Section 702 of the FISA Act be allowed to sunset at the end of the year. If the government wants to spy on us, let them get a warrant!

Was Manchester Blowback?

Western intervention in Libya opened the country up to radical Islamist gangs which had been suppressed under Gaddafi. Just as Gaddafi warned. Same in Syria, where western destabilization efforts have led to an al-Qaeda and ISIS presence that was not there before the west had decided on "regime change" for the secular Assad. Who benefitted from the rise of these radical groups? People like the Manchester suicide bomber, who travelled to both countries for training and radicalization. Western interventionist foreign policy has contributed to the Manchester bombing, a classic "blowback" action. The bomber is guilty, but so are those who endorsed the policies creating conditions for people like him to flourish. Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Manchester Tragedy: Understanding The Big Picture

Yesterday's tragedy at a Manchester, UK music concert reminds us that the threat of terrorism remains with us. ISIS claimed responsibility and governments will no doubt respond. But will their response make future attacks more or less likely? Also, we must look at the attack in the context of the emerging larger US/UK/allied war on Iran, Syria, and ultimately Russia. That is precisely what we do...in today's Liberty Report.

Trump In Saudi Arabia - 'Peace In Our Time?'

President Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia was perhaps one of the most bizarre spectacles of our time. Just months ago he accused the Saudi government of being behind the 9/11 attack on the US, yet over the weekend he stood on Saudi soil and discussed the virtues of religious diversity (something illegal in Saudi Arabia). Was it all about " the art of the deal" -- inking a hugely lucrative (for some) mega weapons deal? Or was it about calling for war on Iran and Syria (and maybe Russia)? We pick apart the trip and the speech in today's Liberty Report...

Black Swans And Interventionistas...With Special Guest Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Neocons and the pro-war mainstream media have nothing to lose when the wars they promote go terribly wrong. This is unique in history. After the predictable disaster, they return to their air conditioned Washington and New York offices while millions suffer and die. That is why why they are able to continue. In the words of today's Liberty Report guest Nassim Nicholas Taleb, they have no "skin in the game." The famous author of The Black Swan also lets us in on his thinking about the current state of the US economy and the actions of the Federal Reserve. Tune in to this very special Liberty Report...
