What will happen this year, as President Trump threatens a shutdown over funding of his wall? There will be a reprieve, as usual. Shutdown farce in today's Liberty Report...

Saudis Tell US Senate 'Where To Go' - Time To Leave?

The Saudi government has condemned a US Senate resolution accusing the Saudi Crown Prince of being responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. But bigger trouble for the Saudis might be on the horizon, as an historic Senate vote to end the US participation in the Saudi war on Yemen passed on the same day. Though the House is being prohibited by its leadership from voting on its own version of the resolution, the Senate move has raised awareness of the brutal Saudi war and has increased the momentum. What next? Watch today's Liberty Report...

Three Dangerous Syria Powder Kegs - Will US Light The Match?

Al-Tanf, Idlib, Kurdish areas in the northeast. Three Syria powder kegs and the US is holding a handful of matches. The continued US occupation of a large chunk of Syrian territory is not providing stability. It is illegal and it is emboldening terrorist organizations. Now some senior military figures are saying we must stay in Syria to protect against "pro-regime" forces. Does this make any sense? We are back to "Assad must go"?

Foreign Policy Arrogance Undermines Our National Security

Pride goeth before the fall, we are told in the Bible. Unfortunately pride and arrogance are the lynchpins of our foreign policy. From the refusal to end the 17 year war on Afghanistan to the ever-growing military budgets to a new Joint Chiefs Chairman who promises to destroy our "enemies," it is an excess pride and arrogance among the US foreign policy and political establishment more than anything else that is undermining our national security.

Global Cops: Will US Jail Chinese Tech Exec?

Pompeo Promises New Liberal World Order - New Wine In Old Bottles?

Secretary of State Pompeo told the German Marshall Fund (which is funded by the US government and the military-industrial complex) that the Trump Administration is seeking to creat a "new liberal world order" where US military might - "engagement" - would create peace and prosperity across the globe. Does this sound a bit - or a lot - like the nonsense the neocons have been spewing for decades since the end of the Cold War? And where has that gotten us? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Why Are We Talking About Khashoggi Murder When US Drones Kill Thousands?

Democrats and neocons in Washington screaming about Trump's apparent lack of concern over the Saudi crown prince's alleged murder of a journalist are themselves silent over the not one, but thousands of civilians killed by US drone strikes. It is not war or savagery that they are opposing. For them, it's all about politics. More on the hypocrisy in today's Liberty Report...
