Peace and Prosperity

The War on Cash in South Korea

The South Korean government is preparing to move to a cashless society as the Bank of Korea plans to phase out all coinage by 2020. Apparently not all governments are proceeding as quickly as the Indian government. South Korea’s government hopes to get its citizenry to deposit their coinage onto electronic travel passes that are widely accepted throughout the country. The Bank of Korea will undoubtedly watch to see how smoothly the phaseout of coinage proceeds in order to set a deadline further in the future for the eventual phaseout of paper notes.

McCarthyism Is Breaking Out All Over

Seasoned journalist, White House official, and historian Pat Buchanan has responded to the Washington Post’s fake news about the independent journalists on the 200 List being Russian agents by reminding us that the US government has always been a major disseminator of fake news. 

No one knows who is behind the newly created PropOrNot website that came up with the list of 200 “Russian agents,” but it is as likely as not the State Department funded National Endowment for Democracy, which has been peddling propaganda as fake news since its inception. Indeed, it was created for the purpose of destabilizing the Soviet Union. Of course the CIA could be involved, or Israel, or George Soros, or some neoconservative group, or some new government funded organization as a tool of the propaganda war that the Obama regime has vowed to fight.

They Attack Us for Telling The Truth. Let's Fight Back

The mainstream media continues to lose audience, revenue, and most importantly credibility. Why is that? Much of it is due to the fact that thanks to the Internet, independent organizations can rise up to challenge the monopoly on ideas that they once enforced. Now, the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, etc. can be taken to task when they falsely report and distort the news. When they wear their biases so clearly on their sleeve that they resemble Pravda of old.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is one such organization. Founded by Ron Paul upon his retirement from Congress, the Institute has grown enormously in stature while retaining its very modest size and budget. We have grown so much in influence, in fact, that just last week when the Washington Post publicized the infamous "blacklist" of organizations it views as a threat to its prominence, the Ron Paul Institute was included among such major alternative outlets as the Drudge Report, Zero Hedge, Counterpunch, and others. That's pretty good company to be in!

Knowing history and economics, Paul continues, is important for young people.

Ron Paul Questions Whether Donald Trump Will Withstand Pressure in Favor of Foreign Intervention

Alex Pfeiffer, drawing on a recent interview with Paul, quotes Paul at The Daily Caller as suggesting President Barack Obama was pushed by powerful interests into a more aggressive foreign policy and that Trump, as president, will encounter similar pressure.

Syrian Rebels Fret Over Trump’s Planned Syria Overhaul

President-elect Donald Trump is planning a major overhaul to US policy in Syria, and that’s got the putative “moderate” rebels that have been getting US funds and weapons fretting, as the CIA program responsible for smuggling that gear in is set to be cancelled.

The CIA has been eager to regularly increase the amount of weapons provided to the rebels, and has sought to shift the focus of US policy in Syria toward imposing regime change, and to dial down efforts to go after ISIS. Trump campaigned on the oppose, moving away from the regime change efforts and focusing on fighting ISIS.
