Unhappy Anniversary: Iraq War At 15



Fifteen years ago today the "shock and awe" of an unjust and illegal US war on Iraq began. A million people may have died. Trillions wasted. The neocons told lie after lie, which the mainstream media repeated unquestioningly. Dutifully. Today Iraq remains a devastated, divided country. The war to, as then-President Bush promised, "bring the Iraqi people freedom" has only brought them death and misery. Yet the same neocons continue pushing war propaganda with impunity. Always another monster to slay. We look back at this "unhappy anniversary" in today's Liberty Report.

Russian Double Agent Poisoned: Who Did It...And Why?



Former Russian spy-turned-UK-spy Sergei Skripal was apparently poisoned earlier this month in the UK. British Prime Minister Theresa May wasted no time in blaming the Russian government and its president, Vladimir Putin personally. Although signatories of the Chemical Weapons Convention must provide samples and evidence when requesting clarification on such matters -- and are given ten days to do so -- Prime Minister May demanded that Russia prove itself not guilty under a 24 hour deadline and refused to hand over any evidence. Why not follow the rules? Is this a false flag to feed the Russiphobia that is rampant? Tune in to today's Liberty Report.

'Skin In The Game' - With Special Guest Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Why is the mainstream media so horrible? They all parrot each other and they never suffer when they are wrong. They are not judged by their readers, but by their peers.

Bestselling author, legendary investor, and one of the most important intellectuals of our time, Nassim Nicholas Taleb joins today's Liberty Report to discuss his new book, Skin in the Game, as well as the ongoing disaster in Syria and President Trump's nominee to be next Secretary of State and much more. Tune in!

Will Torture Make America Great Again?

President Trump's nomination of Mike Pompeo to head up the State Department and Gina Haspel as CIA chief removes the mask from the ugly, warmongering neocon face. Pompeo wants a war with Iran -- NOW! And Haspel personally oversaw some of the most gruesome torture conducted by the CIA -- and then ordered the evidence of the crime destroyed! Pompeo and Haspel belong behind bars, not behind Administration desks. More on this -- and a way we can stop them! -- in today's Liberty Report...

Are Millennials Abandoning Liberty? - With Special Guest Jeff Deist

Have the Sanders and Trump phenomena made a dent in the appeal of liberty to young people? Mises Institute president Jeff Deist joins today's Liberty Report for a frank discussion on the topic. The Liberty movement, according to Deist, must rely on stronger minds than those who might be more easily distracted by the political fad of the day. Plus a bonus issue in today's program: What on earth is happening to Trump's State Department and CIA?? Does it matter?

Military Coup: Pentagon To Ignore Congress On Yemen

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) asked for a Defense Department opinion on proposed Senate legislation to limit US military action in Yemen. The Pentagon told McConnell that it would ignore any such legislation, as the president is "commander in chief." Has there been a military coup in the US? And is Congress going to do anything about it? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Google And Geek Squad: Arms Of The Deep State?

Best Buy's Geek Squad has been discovered acting as undercover FBI informants, snooping on their customers' computers and reporting anything that looks amiss to the FBI...for cash payments! And Google is teaming up with the Pentagon to help it better analyze drone footage for targeting and other purposes. While once it seemed the big tech firms would provide us protection against the ever-prying eyes of the national security state, it seems now they have become arms of the national security state. We look at this troubling phenomenon in today's Liberty Report...

North Korea Breakthrough? Don't Tell The Neocons!

While North and South Korea are making incredible progress toward de-escalation of tensions -- with a successful high-level meeting recently in the North -- the neocons are still calling on the US to launch a "preventative" strike on Pyongyang. They do not even seem deterred by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un's suggestion that ending his nuclear program is on the table. Will President Trump green light direct negotiations or will the neocons win out (again)? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Trump's Foreign Policy: Who Benefits From Chaos?

Why is President Trump's foreign policy so incomprehensible? He says he does not want to let the enemies know what he's doing, but often he does not do what he says. He said we should get out of Syria just a few days ago, but in today's press reporting he is apparently demanding a new plan to attack Syria. What gives? Watch today's Liberty Report...

Trump Is Right On Iraq

Over the weekend, President Trump told an audience at a fundraiser that the US attack on Iraq was the "worst decision ever." As we approach 15 years since the launch of "shock and awe," the truth of Trump's words are evermore obvious. As president, however, he has the power to correct that terrible decision and  not just for Iraq but for every country "liberated" by previous presidents. He can end the US military presence in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, etc. Will he do it? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...
