Congress Plans To Tax and Spy On You More

It seems like only yesterday that incoming Speaker of the House Paul Ryan promised that from here on the House would proceed only under regular order and that there would be no midnight bills pushed through without due consideration from the committees of jurisdiction. As Congress ponders its holiday break, the pressure it mounting to pass the Cybersecurity Information Sharing (CISA) Act, which encourages companies to spy on their customers and give the information to the US government. They've tried to pass this legislation for years, but finally it looks like it will make it. Once again Congress sells out our liberties with the false promises of providing us more security. Today's Liberty Report is joined by Campaign for Liberty president Norm Singleton to take a look at what Congress is giving us for Christmas...

Women In Combat: An Issue Of Rights?

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced recently that all military jobs, including the most dangerous combat roles, would be open to women starting next April. The announcement added new life to a lawsuit seeking to expand mandatory Selective Service registration to women as well as men who reach the age of 18. The military draft is a form of slavery. Seeking to extend it to women because one feels it is discriminatory if it applies only to men is a case of faulty logic. In a real threat to the United States, likely every able body would defend their homeland. A draft only seeks to add cannon fodder to the imperial foreign policy of the warmongering neocons. The problem is the foreign policy, not a lack of fighters to carry it out. More on women in combat and the draft in today's Liberty Report...

Obama Speech: Don't Give In To Fear...But Be Scared To Death

President Obama's address to the nation last night urged Americans to not give in to fear, all the while he stoked fear of terrorist threats all around. He outlined four components to his strategy to fight terrorism that looked like what he had been doing all along, seemingly to no avail. He praised American exceptionalism. Then he said he wanted to take the guns from Americans on the government "no-fly" list -- even though we know that due to government incompetence thousands are on the list with no ties to terrorism whatsoever. More on Obama's sly propagandism on today's Liberty Report...

Are We in a Clash of Civilizations?

It is the extremists on both sides -- the radical Islamists and the neocons at home -- who are pushing a clash of civilizations to suit their own agendas, says Ron Paul in this brand new address. The idea that the western, "Christian" world is at a war to the death with Islam is a fantasy in the minds of both sides. The great danger is that this tiny minority on both sides can make headway, each earning its own recruits to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. They must be resisted. We must cling to the ideas of liberty, peace, and prosperity...

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: 'Is Overthrowing the Syrian Government Worth Risking Nuclear War with Russia?'

US Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is fast becoming one of the the most interesting Members of Congress. A Captain in the US Army National Guard, she deployed twice overseas to the Middle East, including to Iraq in 2004. 

In her first term as a Member of Congress, Rep. Gabbard sits on the influential Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees. House Democratic leadership may have thought seating a female combat veteran on these committees would add a politically-useful militaristic voice to their stable. If that is the case, they miscalculated in a major way.

CA Shooting Reaction: Wrong Diagnosis, Wrong Treatment

The police had no motive and no suspects in custody after yesterday's shooting in California, yet those pressure groups with agendas were already demanding that Muslims be spied on and guns be confiscated. The media, as per usual, amplified every unsubstantiated rumor and outright falsehood about the San Bernardino shooting to keep people glued to their television and glued to their seats. There is little concern about accuracy or journalistic responsibility. The president jumps out ahead of the news and criticizes guns. These tragic events are tools in the hands of those who want to destroy our civil liberties. More on this real threat to our way of life in today's Liberty Report...

After PATRIOT Act Reform, Spying Continues


With the sunsetting of Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act last week, we were told that the NSA had stopped its bulk collection of the metadata of American citizens. In fact there are so many loopholes -- including downright ignoring the law -- that it is certain the massive NSA snooping on US citizens continues. There are Executive Orders authorizing it and sneaky moves to route our communications offshore to bypass US law. Today's Liberty Report is joined by Ron Paul Institute Senior Fellow Adam Dick to discuss the "reform" of the PATRIOT Act...

COP21: Climate Action Or Pushing A Hoax?

More than 100 heads of state join almost 40,000 other elites in Paris for two weeks to discuss how to approve a legally binding global agreement to fight climate change. When polls in the US showed that Americans view climate change as a very low priority, political leaders backed up by the loyal media began pushing the idea that climate change is driving global terrorism. So if you are not motivated to take action to fight global climate change you must be soft on terrorism. That is how propaganda works. And it is working. What will be the implications for US sovereignty and economic and personal liberty of empowering a global body to regulate US economic activity? Join the Ron Paul Liberty Report today for our take...

Sen. Lindsey Graham In Iraq - Wants US Troops To Come Back!

Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain have returned to the scene of the crime -- Iraq -- where the war they demanded has left the country shattered into a million bits with ISIS there to take care of the rebuilding. These two "experts" are forever wrong in their every utterance and policy position -- remember how angry McCain became when it was pointed out that he was meeting with terrorists in Syria and telling us they were moderates? -- yet the slavish US mainstream media continues to defer to their rotten judgement. Back in Iraq over the weekend, the Senators again pushed the only policy they know -- war -- demanding a fresh supply of young American meat to be ground up in Iraq and Syria. Troops on the ground, they scream. Give us 20,000 to start! Today's Liberty Report looks at the logical fallacy that doing more of what caused terrorism can defeat terrorism...

The Most Dangerous Time in Our History?

Those of use working for peace and the prosperity it brings have more tools at our disposal than ever in history. We are empowered. Tune in to a special Thanksgiving Day edition of the Ron Paul Liberty Report...
