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...

Hoax of All Hoaxes: RPI's Daniel McAdams on the Death of Russiagate

There was collusion in the 2016 election, RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT International. It was collusion between Hillary Clinton, US intelligence agencies, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, and even "former" foreign intelligence agents like Christopher Steele. Is this actual collusion going to be punished now that the "Russia collusion" is shown to be the lie that it always has been?

UPDATE: Twitter Lets Julian Assange’s Mom Tweet Again

Yesterday, I wrote about Twitter restricting public access to the past Twitter posts of Christine Assange, the mother of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as well as preventing her from making new posts at her Twitter account. Today, it appears Twitter has removed those limitations.

Neocons Want Brazil in NATO to Undermine Venezuela – Daniel McAdams

Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins News.Views.Hughes to discuss Trump’s apparent 180 degree turn on NATO. While once he was outspoken in his criticism, President Trump now wants to expand the alliance by bringing Brazil into the fold. He argues that Trump has “neocons whispering in his ear” and that NATO is “an expensive meeting club” that has outlived its purpose...
