Facebook Deletes 32 Pages; Blames Russians

Out of more than 2.2 billion Facebook users, the company yesterday dramatically announced that it had discovered 32 accounts it considered "inauthentic." The mainstream media - and Facebook's US government-funded partner the Atlantic Council -- screamed that this must be a Russian influence campaign designed to sow divisions in our society, though Facebook admitted that it has not even investigated the suspicious pages. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed on this latest chapter of the "Russians are behind everything" saga that grips the chattering classes...

Will Russia 'Meddle' to Help Democrats in November?

President Trump Tweeted yesterday that the Russians may actually want to help the Democrats in the coming midterm elections because he's been far harder on Russia than the Democrats have.

Should President Trump pull security clearances of former senior intelligence officials?

Who is Bill Browder and Why is Putin so Interested in Him?

At the now-famous Helsinki press conference with Presidents Trump and Putin the name of a former US businessman, Bill Browder, came up as a person of interest to the Russian president. Let's make a deal, he said: you can come to Moscow and question the 12 GRU officers you accuse of hacking the DNC computers and we'll question Bill Browder and a group of other businessmen who had done business in Moscow. And the former US ambassador to Moscow. While the usual suspects shrieked at such a deal, many wondered what was wrong with trying to get to the bottom of the indictments and "Russiagate." So what's the deal with Browder? RPI's Daniel McAdams spoke to RT America about the former hedge fund operator who reportedly gave up his US citizenship to avoid US taxes and is wanted in Moscow for tax avoidance...

Mueller Indicts 12 Russians - Should the Trump-Putin Summit be Cancelled?

In a surprise move yesterday, Special Council Robert Mueller announced an indictment of 12 Russians he claims are employees of Russian military intelligence over alleged hacking into the Democratic National Committee computers as well as those of Hillary Clinton's campaign. While the indictment claims the alleged Russian efforts had no impact on the election, its announcement just days before an historic Trump-Putin summit meeting in Helsinki has skeptics very suspicious of the timing. Mueller knows that the alleged Russian spies will never have to stand trial in the US and thus he will never have to provide any proof for his assertions. Is this the Deep State trying to deep-six any rapproachement between the US and Russia? RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams, interviewed here on RT, can be counted as one of the skeptics...

Military Keynesianism and the War on Independent Media

How are the mainstream media and the Washington think tanks and the military industrial complex colluding to destroy the independent media? If you disagree with their view that we must invade the world and demand they become just like us or we will "Libya" them, you are not just a person with different views, you are a puppet of a foreign government out to undermine our faith in American institutions. No dissent must be allowed in the United States because if you disagree with the neocons you are Putin's agent. RPI Director Daniel McAdams speaks at the Mises Institute Conference in Ft. Worth last weekend...

State Department's War on Political Dissent

The US State Department is spending millions of dollars spreading its own disinformation and propping up NGOs to destroy any individual or organization that does not toe the official US government line on the US global military empire. Through its "Global Engagement Center" the State Department establishes in fact -- in the open -- what it accuses the Russian government of doing without any evidence. Social media companies are colluding with the US government to make organizations who oppose the US global military empire disappear. RPI's Daniel McAdams joins the Corbett Report to discuss the neocon/Washington war on dissent in America...

RPI's Daniel McAdams on Congressional memo alleging FBI abused spying powers

Now that the memo is out, what does it mean? RPI's Daniel McAdams is on RT to point out that while the memo shows how the FISA system has been abused by the FBI and the rest of the government, the real issue is that the FISA process is always abused. And the same Members pointing to the abuse in this particular case were aware of the abuse even as they voted to re-authorize Section 702 of the FISA Amendments act. There's plenty of hypocrisy to go around on this. And with the release of this memo, will the "Russiagate" fantasy finally be consigned to the dustbin of history where it belongs? Don't count on it...
