Ron Paul is Optimistic Philosophic Changes Will Lead to Greater Respect for Liberty

Libertarian communicator and former presidential candidate Ron Paul says he is optimistic that philosophic changes taking place in America will lead to greater government respect for liberty. Paul made the assessment in a recent interview with host Marc Clair at the Lions of Liberty podcast regarding Paul’s new book The Revolution at Ten Years. “The philosophy comes first, and I think that’s where we excel,” says Paul.

44,000 US Troops on ‘Unknown’ Deployments Worldwide

When the Pentagon wants to mislead the public about where US troops are, generally speaking, they just lie. Yet sometimes the number of troops is just too big to claim as a rounding error, and questions start happening.

This week, the focus is on over 44,000 US military personnel deployed to “unknown,” which immediately raises red flags, because that’s not a place. Pentagon officials, however, say there is “no good way” to describe where they are.

Ron Paul, Peace Envoy to North Korea?

After noting that Ron Paul has “broken down ways to deescalate North Korea,” Alex Jones on Tuesday asked Paul, who was a guest on the Alex Jones Show, if Paul would accept a request from President Donald Trump that Paul travel to North Korea as a peace envoy. In response, Paul first noted that he thinks the odds of the request being made “are pretty slim.” Paul, who is chairman of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, then proceeded to affirm that he would be “delighted to participate” should the request be to take part in “an honest attempt to try to have better relations and work out some problems with North Korea.”

Ron Paul Discusses the Libertarian Revolution

Ron Paul returned to the Scott Horton Show on Friday to discuss Paul’s new book The Revolution at Ten Years. As Paul explains in the interview, the revolution mentioned in the book title is the “libertarian revolution” that “came to light” in Paul’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. While Paul acknowledges that “Washington hasn’t changed” since then, he also comments that the revolution continues with people “laying the groundwork for the necessary changes that will come” after the political system in America “falls apart.”

Libya - Trump Jumps Back In

For over a year, the United States has been disengaged from Libya’s turmoil, with President Donald Trump declaring America had “no interest” in its interminable civil war.

That all changed Friday December 1st, when the President abruptly announced a rethink in a meeting with the head of Libya’s UN-backed Government National Accord, Fayez Sarraj to declare his “commitment to helping the Libyan people realize a more stable, unified, and prosperous future.”

McAdams: US Empire ‘Too Fragile’ for a Free Press

The US Congress yesterday revoked press credentials for the Russia-backed RT America television station, claiming RT's new "foreign agent" status disqualified it from conducting journalism on Capitol Hill. RPI Director Daniel McAdams appeared on RT's The Ed Shultz Show to criticize the move on the grounds that the US government should not attempt to prevent Americans from viewing whatever media they choose. The move is really an attempt by Washington's neoconservatives to prevent any criticism of US interventionist foreign policy, he told RT...

McAdams: US envoy Nikki Haley is ‘Bull in a China Shop, Not a Diplomat’ on N Korea


Daniel McAdams, executive director at Ron Paul Institute, says that Haley is behaving more like a “bull in a china shop” than a diplomat.

RT:What do you make of Nikki Haley's remarks on North Korea, and how could it affect this standoff?

Daniel McAdams: As usual, Haley is not a diplomat, she is a bull in a china shop, so to speak. She is repeating all the neocon talking points at the UN. The idea of kicking North Korea out of the UN? The UN is a forum for diplomacy; it was designed to help avoid war. The idea of kicking them out of that forum just shows what her real agenda is. It is the same agenda that we heard from Lindsey Graham, as a matter of fact word for word: "if war happens, it’ll be North Korea’s fault." If war happens, it will be that the US has decided to attack North Korea. Frankly, I don’t think that is going to happen, but they are trying to ramp it up to the very closest point to war. That is the problem because it could lead to many mistakes.
