Ron Paul: The More US Intervention, the More Chaos in the Middle East

Speaking Wednesday with host Charles Payne on Fox Business, Ron Paul Institute Chairman and Founder Ron Paul said “interventionism of Republicans and Democrats” to “remake the Middle East” is to blame for the “utter mess” from which many Middle Easterners are fleeing. In short, concludes Paul, “the more we’re involved, the more chaos there is.”

States Can Build Up the Border Police State Too

The border-industrial complex has not been content to just count the money and gloat after receiving millions upon millions in “border security” dollars from the United States government. There is more easy money to be had if states can be convinced to take a bigger role aiding the US in building a police state along American borders.

Indeed, it appears that the border-industrial complex has hit the jackpot with the Texas state government.

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson: Using Al-Qaeda to Fight ISIS is Crazy and Dangerous

College of William & Mary Professor and Ron Paul Institute Academic Board Member Lawrence Wilkerson frankly assesses that former United States General and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director David Petraeus’ proposal that the US support al-Qaeda to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) is a “crazy idea” that creates a blowback danger for Americans.

Families Choose Homeschooling to Escape Draconian California Vaccination Mandates

There is an “out” for Californian parents and children dreading the July 2016 implementation of the state’s recently adopted Senate Bill 277 — draconian legislation eliminating exemptions to child vaccination mandates. That out is homeschooling, and many Californian parents are spending this year exploring homeschooling and preparing for a homeschooling future.

Sexual Assault by the TSA is OK, Except in the Airport Bathroom

Here is some welcome news for travelers. There seems to be a limit to where Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees can sexually assault travelers — at least at the New York City LaGuardia Airport. WABC-TV reports that a TSA agent was arrested Thursday for sexually assaulting an individual in a LaGuardia Airport bathroom.

At checkpoints in airports across America, TSA employees regularly subject travelers to friskings (termed “pat-downs” by the TSA) that would justify arrest and prosecution if done by someone without government-granted legal immunity. The United States government admitted as much when it threatened in 2011 to close down all airports in Texas when the state government was on the verge of passing legislation that would subject TSA employees to fines and jail time for offensive friskings.

Telling Your Child to Call 911 in an Emergency Can Be Dangerous

Cop Block co-founder Pete Eyre released a new video this week that, in just four minutes, explains clearly why telling children just to dial 911 is not the best means to ensure children’s safety in emergencies. Just as important, Eyre presents in the video several suggestions of other actions parents can take to prepare their children to deal with emergencies.

Hillary Clinton Criminal Charges Coming on the Eve of the New Hampshire Primary?

The US Department of Justice may announce criminal charges against Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton around the time of the first presidential primary. The charges would arise from Clinton’s mishandling of classified information in her email correspondence during her time as secretary of state. So suggests Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano in a new Fox News interview.

Police Invincibility Melting Away in Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

It is not just ice cream melting off cones in the 100-plus degrees heat of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The reactions of local police chiefs to two recent high profile incidents of apparent police brutality and unjustified killing in the metroplex of around seven million people give hope that police invincibility for destructive and wrongful conduct is melting away as well.

Looking Back: Ron Paul’s Interviews with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show

Though Jon Stewart on Thursday concluded his 16-year run as host of The Daily Show, Stewart’s interviews will live on — including his informative and entertaining interviews with former US House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul.

While Stewart did not see eye to eye with Paul on every issue, Stewart’s conversations with Paul were always respectful and centered on exploring important issues underlying political debates. As with many people, Stewart’s respect for Paul stems at least in part from a recognition of Paul’s consistency.
