Ron Paul: End Unlimited Presidential War Power

Interviewed Tuesday by host Kennedy at Fox Business regarding efforts by United States House of Representatives members to limit US wars overseas, former House member Ron Paul (R-TX) agreed with Kennedy’s assessment that the ability to unilaterally pursue war is “the most egregious area where there is too much power concentrated in the presidency.”

Liberty and Wealth in Jeopardy: Donald Trump’s Law and Order Presidency

Donald Trump has, via executive orders and public comments, presented advancing law and order in America as a primary goal of his presidency. Interviewed earlier this month by host Joshua Bennett at KFAR radio in Fairbanks, Alaska, I described potential Trump administration law and order efforts, including to ratchet up police militarization, US government coordination with local police, immigration policing, asset seizures, and the drug war. These actions, I argue, threaten both Americans’ liberty and their wealth.

Governor Kucinich?

Might Dennis Kucinich, who represented an Ohio district as a Democrat in the US House of Representatives for eight terms, be elected the next governor of Ohio? Henry J. Gomez reported Friday at Cleveland.com that “the names of more than a dozen Ohio Democrats swirl in the speculation about the 2018 race for governor.” It will be an open contest, with term limits preventing current Ohio Governor John Kasich from seeking reelection. And, writes Gomez, the potential of Kucinich entering the Democratic primary contest is “the subject of increasing chatter among party insiders.”

Andrew Napolitano: Donald Trump Has to ‘Fear the Intelligence Community’

President Donald Trump has to “fear the intelligence community,” declared Andrew Napolitano in a new interview with host Neil Cavuto at Fox News, after “American scoundrels” in the “unelected deep state bureaucracy” leaked information about Michael Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador to the United States to get Flynn fired and “humiliate” Trump.

Dennis Kucinich: Push for ‘New Cold War’ Behind Effort Against Michael Flynn

Former US House of Representatives Member Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) presented an urgent warning to the American people in a Wednesday Fox Business interview regarding the resignation of Michael Flynn from the position of national security advisor after information was leaked about a phone conversation Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States. “At the core” of the intercepting of the then-incoming national security advisor’s phone conversation and the sharing with media of related information by US intelligence officials, Kucinich says, “is an effort by some in the intelligence community to upend any positive relationship between the US and Russia.”

David Stockman: People’s Drug Use is ‘None of the Government’s Business’

Whether people use drugs is “none of the government’s business in the first place,” declares economics and politics writer David Stockman. Instead, says Stockman, “the philosophically correct position is that what people do in their private lives, what they use for sedatives or intoxicants or recreation,” is “their business — it’s not the government’s.” Stockman makes these comments in a fascinating new video interview with host Jacob Hornberger of the Future of Freedom Foundation.

Hope and Worry about the New President

Recently I was a guest on Joshua Bennett’s radio show on KFAR radio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Given the day, much of our wide-ranging, two-hour discussion focused on events of the last year and what may come in 2017, including what President Donald Trump will mean for United States intervention abroad and liberty in America.

Looking forward to the Trump presidency, I predicted, pointing to something similar that happened with President Ronald Reagan, that Trump would trade away following through on his stated desire to reduce spending in some areas in order to gain support in Congress for increased spending in other areas such as infrastructure and the military. The result, I concluded, would be a “compromise” of “increasing spending across-the-board.”

Ron Paul Calls Potential Deputy Secretary of State Elliott Abrams ‘the Neocon’s Neocon’

In a new interview with host Michael Tracey at The Young Turks, libertarian communicator and former presidential candidate Ron Paul expressed much concern about President Donald Trump potentially appointing Elliott Abrams to be deputy secretary of state. Paul says Abrams has a “lousy” record. Continuing, Paul calls Abrams “the neocon’s neocon,” noting that “there has never been an intervention overseas that he didn’t seem to enjoy.”

Paul says in the interview that all of these interventions that Abrams supports did not “work.” Victory may be claimed in a sense from these interventions, Paul suggests, if they “remade the Middle East” so “we had thriving democracies there where civil liberties are being protected and [each country] had a constitution somewhat leaning toward ours.” But, in fact, Paul says “that isn’t the case” as the wars have caused more harm than good.
