Donald’s Fourth: Sherman Tanks and Other Death Machines

undefined

Once upon a time, the Fourth of July was about liberty and the Declaration of Independence. Now it’s about grilled burgers, beer, and fireworks made in China. 

For President Trump, the upcoming “holiday” is about showing off the latest death merchant gizmos, including fighter jets and tanks

Did you catch that? Trump believes the death merchants still crank out Sherman tanks. The US has not produced Sherman tanks since WWII. 

As for the “best fighter jets in the world,” is it possible the Donald is talking about the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter? This puppy came in 100 percent over budget, something the stockholders at Lockheed Martin undoubtedly celebrated. 

In response to the embarrassing fact the F-35 dog don’t hunt, in 2012 the Pentagon dumped an additional $450 million into the project.

Trump In A Box: Iran Demands Right To Enrich 'To Any Level'

President Trump's withdrawal from the Iran deal continues to backfire, as he is discovering that the other side can also exert "maximum pressure." With the US out of the deal but still demanding a right to dictate the terms to those who remain in the deal, Iran is exercising its right within the deal to suspend abiding by the terms if other parties do the same. Where will this lead? Watch today's Liberty Report...

Libya...War Crimes on Both Sides?

undefined

A major escalation of the Libyan war has commenced.

On Monday 1st July, Libyan National Army (LNA) Commander Mohamed Manfour announced the beginning of a new aerial bombardment campaign after "traditional means" to "liberate Tripoli" had been exhausted.

Rumours abounded two weeks ago that the militias of Tripoli were beginning to show signs of buckling under the pressure from Field Marshall Khalifa  Haftar’s LNA. The LNA Airforce’s looked like it had achieved air superiority over Tripoli, then an unexpected turn occurred: Turkey upped their ante and embarked on a resupply of defence equipment to the Tripoli and Misrata militias.

The consequences on the ground in Libya of Turkey’s interference were immediate. A major setback resulted for Haftar on the 27th of June when the pro-Tripoli GNA Forces "liberated" Gharayan and forced Haftar’s LNA army to retreat from the town.

Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA), said on Sunday (30th June) its air force destroyed a Turkish drone parked at Mitiga International Airport.

Pompeo Claims Iran Broke Nuclear Deal - Is He Lying?

As Iran exceeds limits on its stockpile of enriched nuclear material, the Trump hawks are screeching that Iran has broken the JCPOA nuclear agreement. They don't want Americans to know that Iran's reaction to the initial breach of agreement by the US is legal under the terms of the deal. Join us for today's Liberty Report...

SHOCKER: Charles Koch and George Soros to Team Up and Form Foreign Policy Institute

undefined

George Soros and Charles Koch are joining to finance a new foreign-policy think tank in Washington D.C., reports the Boston Globe. The claim is that it will promote an approach to the world based on diplomacy and restraint rather than threats, sanctions, and bombing.

It will be called the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, an homage to John Quincy Adams, who in a seminal speech on Independence Day in 1821 declared that the United States “goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.” The Quincy Institute will promote a foreign policy based on this live-and-let-live principle, says The Globe.

The Globe adds:
This is a radical notion in Washington, where every major think tank promotes some variant of neocon militarism or liberal interventionism. Soros and Koch are uniting to revive the fading vision of a peaceable United States...In concrete terms, this means the Quincy Institute will likely advocate a withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and Syria; a return to the nuclear deal with Iran; less confrontational approaches to Russia and China; an end to regime-change campaigns against Venezuela and Cuba; and sharp reductions in the defense budget.
Of course, we will have to see if the Institute sticks to the principle of advocating for a foreign policy of live-and-let-live. If it does, it will be one of the most important institutes created in at least the first quarter of the 21st century and be an important part of the Charles Koch legacy. But you have to wonder. Doesn't his partner in this venture, Soros, finance a lot of revolutions and take sides all over the damn planet? He is almost the anti-Quincy.

US Government Tops All for Creating Refugees

undefined

On June 19th, Statistica headlined “Number of forcibly displaced people reaches new high”, and when one looks at the data, one finds an even bigger story which stands behind those numbers:

This new report from the United Nations documents Statistica’s headline, and it proves that America’s regime-change operations have actually created around half of the world’s refugees. It proves that America’s penchant for invading and trying to overthrow the governments that its billionaires want to replace (“regime-change”) has been by far the biggest of all single causes of refugees worldwide, vastly higher than any other government. Regardless of how bad those other governments might possibly be, the US regime is far worse — at least as being the cause, the creator, of the world’s refugee problems.

Consider the countries that the US regime has recently regime-changed or attempted to:

The US regime invaded Afghanistan in 2001, Iraq in 2003, Syria in 2012-2019, and has been applying, in order to overthrow the Government of Venezuela, strangulating economic sanctions.

Trump Meets Kim In North Korea - Why Are The Democrats Hysterical?

President Trump made history over the weekend as the only US president to set foot in North Korean territory. After, he held talks with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un for about an hour. Rather than point out the benefits of diplomacy over saber-rattling, however, Democrat leaders and candidates as well as the media slammed the president's move. Do they have a point, or is Trump actually pursuing peace? We take a different view in today's Liberty Report...
