Russian Plane Down Over Egypt. Blowback?

The apparent downing of a Russian passenger plane over Egypt's Sinai Peninsula over the weekend has, as could be predicted, produced no shortage of theories as to who or what is behind it. Was it ISIS-affiliated Islamist terrorists who control much of the area? They took "credit" for the attack but do not seem to have the technical means to carry it out. A bomb on board? Blowback for Russian bombs on Syria? Today's Liberty Report takes a look at the various theories and at the bigger picture...

Hill Budget Battle: Another D.C. Charade?

Today the House is expected to vote on the budget "compromise" bill -- outgoing Speaker John Boehner's swan song before retirement. The budget agreement tears up the "sequester" of 2011, which was supposed to limit spending but of course never operated as advertised, and opens the floodgates for billions more to the warfare state and the welfare state. The warfare state doesn't keep us safe and the welfare state doesn't help those in need. Both help Washington above all. Campaign for Liberty's Norman Singleton joins the Ron Paul Liberty Report for a behind-the-scenes look at today's Hill action...

Blair's Iraq 'Apology': Sincere Or Spin?

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair over the weekend offered an apology of sorts over the disaster produced by the 2003 US/UK invasion of Iraq. He's "sorry" that the intelligence was wrong, he said, but he's not at all sorry that Saddam Hussein was overthrown. This "apology" comes on the heels of the White House leaked document showing that while Blair was claiming to the British public that he was dedicated to diplomacy with Iraq, he was making deals with President George W. Bush to push the war option. Today's Liberty Report takes a look at  Tony "Phony" Blair...

Israeli Nuclear Panel Supports Iran Deal

Israel's Atomic Energy Commission has endorsed the Iran nuclear agreement, concluding that it would prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. The Commission joins dozens of former high-ranking security and intelligence personnel in Israel who agree that the deal is a net positive for Israel. Back in the US the neocons have dominated the debate, joining their ally Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in predicting doom and gloom if the world backs off its war footing against Iran. Of course Netanyahu has been predicting an Iranian atomic weapon is imminent since at least 1992, so like the neocons his credibility is low. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is beating down Iran's door for trade opportunities now that the sanctions regime is effectively over. Everywhere but the US, that is. More on the other side of the Iran debate in today's Liberty Report...

Benghazi Questions No One Dares Ask

Today's Benghazi Committee hearings will not focus on the central issue: US interventionist foreign policy which set the stage for the inevitable attack that followed. Hillary Clinton made the point in her opening statement that US embassies have been attacked many times in the past and she is right. But no one wants to question why they attack. Here's a hint: it's not because we are rich and free. Democrats and Republicans are out to score political points from the hearings. Both agree on the policies. Both agree on interventionism. Without major changes, neither will do a thing to change the root cause of such events: US interventionism. Today's Liberty Report explores questions you will not hear in today's hearing...
