Judge Napolitano: Bundy Ranch Protestors’ Line in the Sand Stops Thieving Feds

Judge Andrew Napolitano, speaking Monday with Stuart Varney on Fox Business, explains the significance of the United States government backing off its raid of the Bundy ranch in Nevada after “suffering such a terrible PR loss” from its confrontation with protestors, explaining:
And the resistance that they got, made it sound like, 'Enough is enough with the federal government, we are drawing a line in the sand right here'. And it drew people from all around the country who basically said to the feds, 'Quit your heavy-handed theft of property, and act like you are a normal litigant and not God Almighty.'

Napolitano, and RPI Advisory Board member, argues that Nevada officials should have arrested people involved in the raid of the Bundy ranch and the stealing of the ranch’s cattle.

Ron Paul: US and IMF Bailout of Ukraine is a Bankers Bailout

Speaking Wednesday on the Ron Paul Channel, RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul challenges the United States and International Monetary Fund bailout of Ukraine, calling the bailout “criminal.” Paul explains:

All this nonsense we hear now of bailing out Ukraine -- it’s going to the bankers; it’s going for the politicians; it’s not really even going to help the people in Ukraine. It’s criminal. And yet the people here in this country are going to suffer.
….
These bailouts are always designed to bail out the banks. They are not designed to help the people -- just like our bailouts were in ’08 and ’09. They were there to bail out the rich, the bankers, and the military industrial complex.

The TSA PreCheck Extortion Racket

Transportation Security Administration Administrator John Pistole touted on Tuesday the expansion of TSA's extortion racket-style program known as the PreCheck. Pistole’s comments were part of his testimony at the US House of Representatives before the Homeland Security Subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee.

Under PreCheck, travelers in airports who have taken steps including paying $85, giving over their fingerprints, and obtaining TSA approval of their background checks have a chance -- but no guarantee -- that TSA employees will, over a five year term, harass them a bit less than other travelers.

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson: How to Avoid War Over Ukraine

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, speaking with Chris Hayes on MSNBC this week, details steps the United States government can take to avoid war over Ukraine. Wilkerson suggests:
Ukraine needs to be a buffer state between what is now an alliance that Russia hates -- NATO -- and a country that NATO has a problem with -- Russia… Crimea needs to be exactly where it is -- with Russia where it has been for over 350 years. And we need to stop the passionate statements and get down to business and work this out. We don’t need a war.

Judge Napolitano: Congress and CIA Relationship at 'Turning Point'

Speaking with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business, Judge Andrew Napolitano predicts that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) strong reaction to Central Intelligence Agency snooping on the Senate Intelligence Committee she chairs “is a turning point in the relationship between the CIA and the United States Congress.”

This change of heart of “the biggest cheerleader, the strongest supporter, and arguably the most powerful member of Congress in support of the intelligence community,” says RPI Advisory Board Member Napolitano, puts Feinstein on a “collision course” with CIA Director John O. Brennan.

Ron Paul Reports Ukraine Story the Mainstream Media is Suppressing

RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, over at the Ron Paul Channel, reports this week in a 14 minutes video the story behind the conflict in Ukraine. Paul also criticizes biases in how mainstream television programs cover the conflict, saying “they're part of the banking system, they're part of the military-industrial complex, they're part of an educational system that endorses perpetual intervention overseas.” The full video is viewable without the subscription usually required for Ron Paul Channel videos.

In the video, Paul notes the hypocrisy of the United States government condemning Russia for violating Ukraine sovereignty while the United States has been invading countries, taking sides in revolutionary conflicts including in Ukraine, and interfering in elections around the world. Paul notes that, while many people around the world recognize this hypocrisy, “the propaganda here, in order to get the American people satisfied, is to say ‘they are the bad guys and we are the angels’”
