Adam Dick on Alaska Radio: ‘Russiagate’ Indictments, School Shootings, and More

On Saturday, I was interviewed by hosts Joshua Bennett and Michael Anderson at KFAR radio in Fairbanks, Alaska regarding a number or issues in the news. The interview started with a discussion of the indictment of 13 Russian citizens and three companies that United States Special Counsel Robert Mueller had announced the day before. Other topics discussed in the wide-ranging interview include more aspects of the ongoing “Russiagate” investigation, the possibility of the United States government supporting a military coup in Venezuela, US sanctions against North Korea, the US government’s mass surveillance program, the drug war, rising tensions between the US and Russia, huge increases in US government spending, a gas tax increase, intervention in Syria, and the killings last week at a Florida high school.

David Stockman Challenges Economy-Harming, Unnecessary US Military Spending

Watch out for a recession and more trouble for American stocks ahead, warned investing, economy, and politics writer David Stockman in a Monday interview at Fox Business. Hearing Stockman’s informative analysis about that alone should be reason enough for people concerned about the economic outlook in America or their investments to watch the interview. But, Stockman also provides in the interview compelling analysis of the role United States military spending will play in causing coming economic problems in America while failing to make Americans any safer.

Andrew Napolitano Calls Out FISA Court Charade

There is plenty of reason to think that regular United States courts too readily allow surveilling people and searching their homes and property.

Lawrence Wilkerson: Trump’s Iran War Push is a Replay of Bush’s Iraq War Push

The Trump administration “is using much the same playbook to create a false choice that war is the only way to address the challenges presented by Iran” as the George W. Bush administration used to gain support for the Iraq War. College of William & Mary Professor Lawrence Wilkerson presents this argument, along with abundant supporting evidence, in a Monday New York Times editorial.

Wilkerson should know. In the lead-up to the Iraq War, Wilkerson was chief of staff for United States Secretary of State Colin Powell, whose United Nations presentation regarding Iraq Wilkerson, at the beginning of the editorial, credits with boosting support among Americans for a war against Iraq.

Andrew Napolitano Doubles Down on Advice that President Trump Refuse to Talk with Russiagate Investigators

Two weeks ago, Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano emphatically argued that President Donald Trump should refuse to talk with Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents as part of the so-called Russiagate investigation. Napolitano, a former New Jersey state judge, explained then that “no serious criminal defense lawyer” would support entering into such communication with people trying to prosecute a client and that the investigators in this instance should be expected to be seeking to trap Trump as they have other people interviewed before in the investigation.
