Washington ‘Thrives & Survives on War & Conflict’ – Daniel McAdams

As the historic Kim/Putin meetings winds down in Vladivostok, what are the main takeaways? Is this a clever Putin end-run around Washington after the failed Trump/Kim summit in Hanoi? Does Kim really want a deal? What might a deal look like? RPI's Daniel McAdams joins RT America to point out that the Kim/Putin summit is far more about US/North Korea relations than Russia/North Korea relations...

Why Bernie Sanders Can Defeat Donald Trump in 2020

With his veto this week of legislation intended to end United States military support for the war on Yemen, President Donald Trump may have ensured his defeat to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the 2020 presidential election. That is an argument political commentator Patrick J. Buchanan persuasively presents in a new editorial.

‘Fort Trump’: Poland Ready for US Military Base

The Poles seem desperate to have a permanent US military base on their territory. They even promised to kick in two billion dollars and name it "Fort Trump" if the US agrees. The two countries are reportedly on the verge of making a deal. Does Warsaw really believe Russia is about to launch invasion of Europe? For what purpose? RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America to discuss "Fort Trump," the CIA lying to Trump on the Skripals, and the Mueller Report...

Debate: Omar & AOC Join Rand Paul & Republicans to Urge Syria Withdrawal

What's the main message in a bi-partisan, bicameral letter sent by ten Members and Senators to President Trump urging a full US withdrawal from Syria? In this RT America debate, RPI's Daniel McAdams suggests it's a way for Congress to encourage the president that he does have some support in Washington for his declared intention to get US troops out of Syria. Trump may be only hearing neocon opinion opposed to such a withdrawal. Is it a foolish, sham move, or a pretty good strategy? Watch the debate...

McAdams: 'Trump White House is a "Cult" under Bolton'

How is it that President Trump's national security advisor John Bolton seems to actually be running things and even over-riding his boss's foreign policy? As RPI Director Daniel McAdams tells Rick Sanchez of RT America, it's because he's frozen everyone else from the intelligence and national security community out and insists on controlling all information that gets to the president. It is similar to the role played by Bolton's ideological comrades in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war: Keep control of the president and make sure he sees nothing that contradicts what is your desired policy...

Jacob Hornberger for President?

Jacob Hornberger appears to be laying the groundwork for a 2020 presidential run as a Libertarian. That is the subject of a Monday article at Independent Political Report that notes Hornberger, who is the president of the libertarian Future of Freedom Foundation (FFF), “is visiting many, if not all, the Libertarian Party state conventions” and has produced a new website jacobforliberty.com. That website looks like a campaign website, though it does not outright declare Hornberger is running for office.

Venezuela is ‘most open US coup’, pundit tells RT as WSJ talks ‘getting Russia out of Caracas’

The US is fueling “the most open coup in history” in Venezuela, an American pundit told RT in response to a WSJ op-ed that beat the drum of interventionism by discussing how to get Russia out of Caracas and Maduro out of power.

A short but emotive editorial piece by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) said President Donald Trump should not let himself be “humiliated in our own hemisphere” by Vladimir Putin. The neocon paper was at their finest when they claimed Putin has built “a career of intervening abroad and seeing if the world lets him get away with it,” including in Georgia, Ukraine, and Syria.

McAdams: Guaido Losing Popularity at Home, Despite US Support

President Trump foolishly listened to his neocon advisors who told him that regime change in Venezuela would be a "cake-walk." Just recognize the other guy as president and the whole thing will fall like a house of cards, they no doubt told him. And he believed. Now it is two months later and neither border incidents nor big cash incentives to the military, nor even apparent sabotage of Venezuela's power generation system has resulted in the promised overthrow of the Maduro government. And to make matters worse, the Russians have landed which enormously complicates repeated US claims that "everything including military action" is on the table. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America with his views on what to expect next...
