'Doing Time Like A Spy' - With Guest John Kiriakou

John Kiriakou remains the only CIA officer to be jailed over the Agency's illegal torture program -- and he was the whistleblower who exposed it! But the story of how the FBI was able to send Kiriakou to prison on a 30 month sentence is fascinating, shocking, chilling. We discuss this dark chapter in our recent history as well as Mr. Kiriakou's fascinating upcoming book, Doing Time Like A Spy: How the CIA Taught Me to Survive and Thrive in Prison, in today's very special Liberty Report...

Who 'Provoked And Destabilized' North Korea? China?

President Trump's National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster said over the weekend that North Korea's behavior is "provocative and destabilizing" in the region. This while the US is in the process of parking an "armada" of warships off of North Korea's coast. President Trump has shown that he will not hesitate to use military force as a first option when facing what he views as threats overseas and he shows little interest in involving Congress in the matter. But who is really provoking whom? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Does Anybody Know What Our Russia Policy Is?

After steadily-increasing tension under the Obama Administration, candidate Trump wondered why it was a bad thing to get along with Russia.

President Trump has thus far brought us closer to war with Russia than at any time since the height of the Cold War. Does Trump have a Russia policy and if so what is it? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

Why Does Assad Have To Go? -- With Lew Rockwell

It was supposed to be different with Trump. Dozens of times as candidate and even early on as president, he stated that it would be a big mistake to go into Syria. He also finally cancelled Obama's "Assad must go" policy. Then came reports of a gas attack in Syria which was blamed on Assad with no evidence given. Suddenly missiles are flying, US boots are on the ground, and again we hear "Assad must go." Is it our role to determine who can and cannot rule foreign countries? We are joined in-studio today by Mises Institute founder Lew Rockwell to discuss...

After Trump Bombed Syria, Are We All Neocons Now?

House and Senate Republican leaders McConnell and Ryan are praising President Trump's missile strike on Syria last week in retaliation for an alleged chemical attack on civilians, while when President Obama proposed the same thing in 2013 they strongly opposed the plan. Meanwhile, the mainstream media and even many "progressives" are turning pro-Trump after the US attack. Few are the true progressives like Tulsi Gabbard, who is questioning the claims that Assad gassed his own people. So are we all neocons now? Not so fast! While earning praise from the establishment, Trump's base and the opinion-makers around his base are furious. We discuss the changing political environment -- and whether the accepted narrative makes any sense in today's Liberty Report...

WWI Anniversary: 100 Years Of 'Making World Safe For Democracy'

One hundred years ago today, President Woodrow Wilson went to Congress seeking a declaration of war on Germany. Thus started US involvement in World War One. More than 100,000 Americans were killed, but Wilson assured Americans that it was "worth it." We were making the world safe for democracy. One hundred years later, the war is still being fought. More on this unhappy anniversary in today's Liberty Report...

Syria Gas Attack: Assad's Doing...Or False Flag?

Would Syrian President Assad launch a chemical attack on civilians just as peace talks are about to be held and where government gains against ISIS and al-Qaeda rebels give him the upper hand? He would be literally committing suicide. Who benefits from the attack? Not Assad. But the rebels and the US neocons and the warmongers benefit a great deal. Are we about to be taken to war yet again based on lies? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Susan Rice Spy Scandal: Was Trump Right? And What It Means.

In a surveillance state, no one is immune from the government's watchful eyes. Not even the government. It looks like the Obama Administration used the NSA to dig up dirt on the Trump people before and after the election. Possibly, the "Russia hacked the election" story was meant to cover-up for that real crime. But our concern is not the political implications of this potentially monumental scandal. Rather, we focus on the bigger picture: if we want to live in a surveillance state, this is the kind of society we will become. More in today's Liberty Report...

Threatening China Over Korea: Grandstanding...Or Wise Diplomacy

Just days before President Trump is set to meet Chinese Premier Xi Jinping he let loose with a threat: either China "solves" North Korea or the US will do it. One way would be good for China, the other would not, he added. But how much sway does China really have over Kim Jong-Un and his nuclear policy? Could Trump be miscalculating? What's at stake? We look at the possibilities in today's Liberty Report...
