The Real Cost Of War: Three Times More Than The Government Admits

Imagine if the $5.6 trillion that it is now estimated to have been spent on 16 years of US global wars had been put to better use. Imagine how families would have been able to afford education if the value of the dollar had not been inflated away to fund the military industrial complex. In today's Liberty Report we discuss a new Brown University study concluding that the endless wars have cost three times more than the Pentagon estimated...

War on ISIS - Whose Side Are We Really On?

On Sunday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said in a press conference that the US military would remain in Syria for the long haul, "as long as there are ISIS who want to fight" he said. He falsely claimed that the US operates in Syria with UN permission. According to a blockbuster BBC report, however, the US government was part of a secret deal to allow thousands of ISIS fighters and their families safe passage from Raqqa -- with their weapons! What's going on here? Join us for today's Liberty Report...

Kochs Spend Big On Foreign Policy Realism...Should Neocons Be Worried?

The neocon interventionists run Washington foreign policy. Even a Donald Trump, whose foreign policy positions during the campaign infuriated the neocons, has had his administration infiltrated with neocons. According to recent press reports, the Koch Foundation plans to spend a few million dollars promoting the "realist" school of foreign policy at major US universities. While such a move is to be welcomed there is also danger, as "realism" and neocon interventionsm do not disagree fundamentally on principles but only on the application of those principles. Cautious optimism in today's Liberty Report...

Is Trump Getting A Bad Rap On His Asia Trip?

The US media (and some neocon politicians) are furious that President Trump didn't lecture Philippine President Duterte on human rights and that he dared speak with Russian President Putin. How dare he listen to Putin on meddling our elections and raise doubts about the US intelligence community's conclusions! They would never lie to us...would they? All in all, however, there are more positives than negatives, as we discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Manipulation: The US State Department's New Program to Take On Hungarian Media

undefined

Hypocrisy may be the only consistent guiding principle of US foreign policy. Here's a prime example of the "do as we say, not as we do" that is the core of how the US government acts toward the rest of the world: In the same week that the the US Justice Department demanded that the Russian-backed RT America network register as a foreign propaganda entity or face arrest, the US State Department's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DNL) has announced that it is launching a program to massively interfere in NATO-partner Hungary's internal media.

Saudi Escalation: Lebanon And Yemen In The Crosshairs

The Saudi crown prince is rumored to soon take over as king. He has moved against possible rivals within his own family and seized billions of dollars. Meanwhile he's threatened Lebanon and his government has ordered Saudi citizens to leave Lebanon. This while blaming Iran for a Yemeni missile that hit near an airport in Riyadh. The US is backing Saudi moves against Yemen and Lebanon to the hilt. Is something big about to happen? We suspect it is. More today in the Liberty Report...

Deconstructing 'Russia-Gate'

Both firms used to push the story that the Russians hacked the DNC and John Podesta's emails were in the pay of the DNC. The FBI was blocked from examining the DNC servers that the Democrats claimed were hacked. The Russia-Gate story hinges on some very sketchy and highly compromised objective facts that a little mainstream media scrutiny would likely demolish in short order. But the MSM has no interest in looking for truth. Fortunately international correspondent Joe Lauria is not afraid of where his inquiries into Russia-Gate take him. He shares some astonishing information with us in today's Liberty Report...

Ducks Lining Up: Saudi, Israeli, US Moves On Iran, Lebanon

Why has President Trump's son-in-law/top advisor Jared Kushner been spending so much time with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman? Last month was his third trip this year? The visit occurred right before Bin Salman purged his political rivals, claimed that Lebanon had declared war on his country, and cited a Yemeni missile strike as a pretext to ramp up tensions with Iran. Are the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel preparing for a major war with Iran, Lebanon, and Hezbollah? We look at the troubling trends in today's Liberty Report...

Trump In Asia: Diplomacy Or Sabre-Rattling?

Will President Trump's lengthy visit to Asia signal the beginning of a more diplomatic approach to Washington's disputes in the region? Will President Trump have a face-to-face with Russian President Putin? Trump has signaled a willingness to sit down with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. Any chance that will take place? Our hopes and concerns so far in today's Liberty Report...

Revealed: How The Russians Stole Our Election

undefined

Now we can see why they initially tried to keep a lid on the content of the infamous "Russia-linked" social media advertisements. Today, while grilling representatives of Google, Facebook, and Twitter, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a number of social media ads they claim were taken out by "Russia-linked" accounts for the purpose of interfering in the US electoral process.

The ads were supposed to have swayed Americans away from Hillary and toward Trump...or undermined our confidence in democracy...or...well something bad! But the truth is they were so strange and even funny that one might be led to believe someone is having a giant joke on everyone who is pushing the "Russia meddled" story.


Twitter erupted in laughter at what we are told was a sophisticated Russian operation targeting the American electoral system.

But the absurdity is unfortunately lost on a few dead-enders, namely a majority of the US Congress and seemingly all of the mainstream US media. 

To these two groups, the following seemingly-unrelated advertisements taken out on social media were clearly part of an extraordinarily sophisticated and successful Russian intelligence operation to massively sway American public opinion.
