US State Department 'Concerned' Over Syrian Government Operations in...Syria!

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert released a statement today warning the Syrian government to cease and desist from its final military push against ISIS and al-Qaeda groups in southwest Syria. The United States is "deeply troubled by reports of increasing Syrian regime operations in southwest Syria" because such operations are within the "de-escalation zone negotiated between the United States, Jordan, and the Russian Federation last year and reaffirmed between Presidents Trump and Putin in Da Nang, Vietnam in November," the statement says.

Why Is Washington Backing Saudi Starvation Policy In Yemen?

As Saudi Arabia moves ahead with its siege of the Yemeni port of Hodeidah, the goal is to starve the local civilian population to the point where they rise up and overthrow the Houthis who hold the city. While Saudi Arabia's entire three year war on Yemen is criminal and genocidal, this "starve them out" strategy is the most repulsive of war crimes. So why does the Trump Administration continue to back Saudi slaughter in Yemen? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Who Won At The Summit? Trump or Kim?

Yesterday's meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was history in the making. By all accounts the meeting went well. Trump looks like a peacemaker and Kim looks to have delivered security to his people while continuing the process toward peace with his southern neighbor.

Six Against Trump: Who Wins At G-7 Summit?

President Macron of France and German chancellor Angela Merkel are reportedly ready to read President Trump the riot act at the G7 Summit in Canada starting tomorrow.

New Report: War Crimes In Raqqa. Who's Guilty?

After a lengthy investigation, Amnesty International has just released a study finding that the US-led attack on Raqqa in Syria was so devastating to civilians and to the infrastructure that it may in fact constitute a war crime. Some have compared it to Dresden. And the irony is that after destroying the city to rid it of ISIS, the US turned a blind eye as hundreds of ISIS fighters escaped with their families...and their weapons! More in today's Liberty Report...

Military Keynesianism and the War on Independent Media

How are the mainstream media and the Washington think tanks and the military industrial complex colluding to destroy the independent media? If you disagree with their view that we must invade the world and demand they become just like us or we will "Libya" them, you are not just a person with different views, you are a puppet of a foreign government out to undermine our faith in American institutions. No dissent must be allowed in the United States because if you disagree with the neocons you are Putin's agent. RPI Director Daniel McAdams speaks at the Mises Institute Conference in Ft. Worth last weekend...

Supremes Miss The Point On 'Bake The Cake' Ruling

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who claimed his deeply-held religious views prevented him from baking a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. While many conservatives may cheer what appears to be a victory for their cause, the Supreme Court ruling missed the central point -- property rights -- in favor of a highly subjective "deeply held views" test. The decision is very shaky territory even for social conservatives -- who gets to decide which views are "deeply-held"? -- and it is little help at all for libertarians. We look at the pros and cons of the decision in today's Liberty Report...

Ron Paul Rewind: The Right Not To Bake the Cake

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court, in the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, decided in favor of a bakery that the Colorado state government sought to require to design and create a custom wedding cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage. The court’s narrow basis for its resolution of the matter means that we can expect to see more cases dealing with similar issues moving through American courts.
