RPI's Daniel McAdams on the Washington Post 'Fake News' Attack Piece

With its status as the Beltway newspaper of record, with its budget of some half a billion dollars, with its 750 or so employees, what a surprise that the Washington Post feels threatened by a tiny truth-telling think tank like the Ron Paul Institute. But obviously they do feel threatened. So threatened, in fact, that they recently published an article claiming that the Ron Paul Institute -- along with such notable company as the Drudge Report, Counterpunch, ZeroHedge, LewRockwell.com and others -- is part of a grand Russian conspiracy to publish "fake news" to undermine the Hillary Clinton campaign and, presumably, as in Dr. Strangelove, pollute the "precious bodily fluids" of Americans. RPI's Daniel McAdams joined another blacklisted "fake news" site, RT, to discuss the WaPo report...

DOJ Drops Charges Against Arms Dealer - Why?

Why did the Justice Department suddenly drop charges against arms dealer Marc Turi, who said he was shipping weapons to "rebels" in Libya via other US allies in the Gulf? The government said he broke the arms control export laws, Turi insisted he was acting on instructions from the State Department and US intelligence agencies. Did the government fear that the discovery phase of the trial would expose the secret US plan to arm what turned out to be radical jihadists in Libya? RPI's Daniel McAdams comments on this RT segment about the case...

Russia-US relations: Increased Tensions

A confrontation between Russia and the US over Syria seems all but inevitable after the end of a ceasefire early this month, a US attack on Syrian forces, an attack on a humanitarian aid convoy, and a renewed push by the Syrian army to re-take eastern Aleppo from al-Nusra Front troops. In the waning days of the Obama Administration, with forces beyond the president's control force a military exchange with Russia over the failed US regime-chance policy for Syria? RPI Director Daniel McAdams appears on RT's Crosstalk program to discuss...

Trump: Siberian Candidate?

Has Vladimir Putin taken over the US electoral process? That has been the media mantra over the past 24 hours or so, since a Wikileaks data dump revealed a deeply flawed presidential selection in the Democratic Party. Rather than address how Democratic National Committee employees colluded with the media to push their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, the Democrats and the media have claimed that the whole release was engineered by Russian president Vladimir Putin. They claim Putin is seeking to get Trump elected. RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams appears on RT's flagship political debate program Crosstalk to discuss...

New From RPI: A Tipping Point for Liberty

undefined

Ron Paul Institute Senior Fellow Adam Dick’s new book A Tipping Point for Liberty: Exposing and Defeating Leviathan Government was published this week. Dick’s new book frankly explores the battle between overbearing government, both at home and abroad, and individuals’ aspirations for liberty. In A Tipping Point for Liberty, Dick describes in detail the dangers from leviathan government and presents reasons for optimism.

Before joining RPI, Dick worked in the United States House of Representatives office of Rep. Ron Paul for nearly ten years. There, Dick concentrated on matters including the drug war, free speech, and gun rights that are focuses of A Tipping Point for Liberty. Dick’s book, drawn from his hundreds of RPI articles, explores in detail several other aspects of the modern America as well, including militarism, police misconduct, and mass surveillance.

Dick, whose experience includes managing one of the most successful Libertarian Party governor campaigns, also delivers in A Tipping Point for Liberty well-informed insights on libertarianism and Paul’s unique place in the liberty movement.

State Department Follies

After President Obama swore no fewer than eight times that he would not put boots on the ground in Syria and then did so, his State Department spokesman swore that he never said that he would not put boots on the ground. Why have US government press briefings turned into information-free propaganda barrages? Why does the government insist on lying to us so openly, as if we are idiots? RPI's Daniel McAdams is on RT's Crosstalk to discuss the sorry state of government/media relations in the US...

Between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, whose foreign policy would most likely lead to war? Which one has a better track record in foreign policy? Are either of them any good? RPI Director Daniel McAdams finds himself in the middle between a Donald Trump supporter and a Hillary Clinton supporter in this edition of RT's Crosstalk...

Washington’s Neocon Occupation Upholds Illusion Of Choice In The Two-Party Duopoly

A good part of the country heads to the primaries today, Super Tuesday, to cast a vote for which Democrat or Republican will run for president in November. The media and the pundits make their living playing up the illusion that there is a great difference between parties and candidates, while in fact when it comes to the most critical issues there is very little space between them. 

Certainly when it comes to foreign policy, it matters very little whether Democrat or Republican sits in the White House. The neocons have held a firm grip on US foreign policy in administration after administration. But who are the neocons? What is their agenda? How do they survive so well? RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed by MintPressNews about the neoconservative stranglehold on Washington:

Syria's Moment: RPI's Daniel McAdams on Crosstalk

With another round of talks in Geneva on the Syria crisis scheduled to take place in just days, the US and Russia still cannot agree on who should represent the opposition at the negotiating table. The US and Saudis have insisted that the political leader of the Islamist Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) head up the negotiations as the opposition representative. The Russians have objected to any organization that has ties to ISIS and al-Qaeda. Who will blink? What to expect now in Syria, where the facts on the ground have shifted in favor of Damascus after Russia's entry at the request of the Syrian government? RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams joins RT's news discussion show Crosstalk to share his analysis and predictions...
