The Origins of ISIS
RPI Director Daniel McAdams appears on Ben Swann's excellent documentary on the real origins of ISIS, everybody's favorite enemy. Don't miss the cameos by Barack Obama, John McCain, and Antiwar.Com's Angela Keaton. How many billions of dollars did the US Intelligence Community spend and somehow they totally missed the rise of ISIS, asked McAdams.

Internet, RIP?
Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a non-elected federal government agency, voted three-to-two to reclassify broadband Internet as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act. This means that – without the vote of Congress, the peoples’ branch of government – a federal agency now claims the power to regulate the Internet. I am surprised that even among civil liberties groups, some claim the federal government increasing regulation of the Internet somehow increases our freedom and liberty.

The Chris Kyle Verdict and The Mistreatment of Our Veterans
If Eddie Ray Routh had never served in the military, I'm of the opinion that he would probably not have killed anybody. He would not be imprisoned for life and Chris Kyle would be alive today. Much of the blame should lie with our foreign policy of interventionism and the VA's faulty reliance on psychotropic drugs for treating the guilt associated with preemptive wars.

US, UK, Kiev in Violation of Minsk Agreement?
Since the Minsk II Agreement went into effect earlier this month, there have been many claims and counter-claims that both the Kiev government and the separatists in east Ukraine have violated the terms of the agreement.

Ron Paul Reports Ukraine Story the Mainstream Media is Suppressing


Rpukraine

RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, over at the Ron Paul Channel, reports this week in a 14 minutes video the story behind the conflict in Ukraine. Paul also criticizes biases in how mainstream television programs cover the conflict, saying “they're part of the banking system, they're part of the military-industrial complex, they're part of an educational system that endorses perpetual intervention overseas.” The full video is viewable without the subscription usually required for Ron Paul Channel videos.

In the video, Paul notes the hypocrisy of the United States government condemning Russia for violating Ukraine sovereignty while the United States has been invading countries, taking sides in revolutionary conflicts including in Ukraine, and interfering in elections around the world. Paul notes that, while many people around the world recognize this hypocrisy, “the propaganda here, in order to get the American people satisfied, is to say ‘they are the bad guys and we are the angels’”

“The neocons will go nuts” to impose sanctions in response to recent developments in Ukraine, says Paul, despite following such a course being “exactly opposite” of what the US should do.

Paul concludes, “the closest thing we can come to having a morally correct position is minding our own business and getting out of situations like this.”
