The Magna Carta at 800 Years: Is it Still Alive?

Born 800 years ago today, the magna carta was in essence the result of a rebellion against the unchecked power of the executive to take a country to war and then stick the citizens with the bill. What can we learn from that rebellion and how can we put it to use to preserve and defend our own liberty against a modern unchecked executive power? Today's Ron Paul Liberty Report takes a look...

Europeans Reject NATO's War

Despite the ongoing war propaganda and political leaders who seem desperate to do the bidding of Washington, a majority of the population in every European NATO member country would oppose going to war with Russia -- even if Russia attacked another NATO member country! That is the surprising result of a recent PEW poll conducted in NATO member countries. Only in the US and Canada -- well away from the battlefield -- is there majority support for striking the Russians. What does this mean for the proponents of the new Cold War? Tune in to the Ron Paul Liberty Report for more...

Iraq in Chaos: An Excuse to Escalate?

President Obama has admitted this week that he has no strategy for Iraq and Syria. But in the absence of a strategy the old familiar tactics are still at play: escalate, escalate, escalate. More US "trainers" to Iraq to perform a miracle: create an Iraqi army that can defeat ISIS; more US weapons on the way (because the last batch ended up in the hands of ISIS); and, to top it off, a new US military base to be built in Iraq's Anbar Province. All to the delight of the military-industrial complex who is really running the show. Tune in to the Ron Paul Liberty Report for more on the chaos...

Maidan 3.0: Another Revolution in Ukraine?

Will Ukrainians take to the streets in sufficient numbers to overthrow their US-backed leaders? Over the weekend a large protest in Kiev was violently broken up by masked men while the police looked on. No word from the US condemning the violence. Elsewhere, the US admits sanctions are hurting Europe and not harming Russia, but still it presses for even more of them. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT's CrossTalk today to discuss US policy toward Ukraine and the possibility of more unrest:

Are Waco Bikers Getting Justice?

Three weeks after a deadly shootout at a biker rally in Waco, TX, there are more questions than answers. Why are more than 100 of those arrested still being held without any real charges filed? Why do witnesses familiar with firearms insist that most of the shooting came from police automatic weapons? Why won't the police release any information about the incident? Is it another case of disproportionate police response? Just this weekend in McKinney, TX, we saw another apparent example of disproportionate police response when an officer pulled a gun on unarmed teenagers at a pool party. The Ron Paul Liberty Report takes a look at the increasing divide between police and the people...

Afghan Drone Strike: Expect More Blowback

On Friday, US drones killed 34 at an Afghan funeral. US officials claimed they were all terrorists but the locals on the ground disagreed. Will family members of those killed seek revenge on the US? Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan admitted that this kind of blowback could be a problem for the US. As he put it, "sometimes our engagement and direct involvement will stimulate and spur additional threats to our national security interests." Today's Liberty Report takes a look at these two important events together to see how the first and second are intimately related...

Macedonia: Another Color Revolution

The current government in Macedonia, elected freely just a year ago, has been under pressure by NGOs financed by the US and European governments as well as George Soros. The problem? Lack of enthusiasm about western sanctions on Russia and an initial agreement to participate in the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project with Russia. Today the Ron Paul Liberty Report looks at this latest color revolution...

Soros Seeks to Expand War in Ukraine...Why?

Hacked emails show billionaire George Soros is fighting to save the US-backed president of Ukraine. He promised President Poroshenko to call up US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and ask for some more money for Ukraine. He is demanding that the US start supplying weapons to Ukraine to attack separatists in the east. Tune in to the Liberty Report for more on why this super powerful mogul is playing the region like a chessboard...

TSA is The Danger - 95% Fail Rate

Just after the acting administrator of the TSA told Congress what a great job his agency is doing at keeping Americans safe, an internal investigation into the TSA found that agents failed to detect mock bombs 95 percent of the time. Perhaps they were too busy stealing things from our suitcases? Today the Ron Paul Liberty Report takes a look at the failed TSA and the failed approach of depending on the government to keep us safe...

The CIA: Providing Security or Threatening Liberty?

Last night parts of the PATRIOT Act expired, but it is only a matter of days before Congress passes a new PATRIOT Act -- this time called the FREEDOM Act. As the saying goes, the PATRIOT Act was to real patriotism as the FREEDOM Act is to real freedom. The only real "reform" would be going back to the Constitution, which is the law of the land. The NSA and CIA comprise the secret US government that is the greatest threat to our freedom and liberty. Today's Liberty Report takes a look the CIA's damaging role in the US and the rest of the world...
