Is Krugman Right About Syria?

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is skewed weekly by libertarian luminaries Robert Murphy and Tom Woods in their "Contra Krugman" podcast. For this episode, RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins the duo to pick apart a column by Krugman criticizing Trump's missile strike on Syria for being merely a "publicity stunt." Asks Woods: "what if what the government and mainstream media are absolutely correct and Assad personally gassed those people? Should the US have responded?" Listen to McAdams' response at Contra Krugman.

The Last Palm Sunday in Syria?

On Palm Sunday, Syrian President Assad visited a Christian church to mark the beginning of Holy Week, a most important time on the Christian calendar. Though not himself a Christian, Assad, for all his faults, has maintained Syria as a multi-confessional, secular state, where Christians and other religious minorities can worship freely. As RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT in the below interview, if the Trump Administration has its way and Assad is overthrown, it will likely be the last Palm Sunday for Christians in Syria. McAdams also comments on the Lavrov/Tillerson meeting in Moscow and the UN Security Council vote on Syrian chemical weapons...

War and Peace in the Age of Trump

Did you miss the Ron Paul Institute/Mises Institute joint conference in Lake Jackson, TX over the weekend? Held to discuss the possibility that President Trump might pursue a more peaceful foreign policy than his recent predecessors, the US attack on Syria just two days before the opening thrust the topic to the front of everyone's minds. In fact it could not have been a hotter topic. So what did Rep. Thomas Massie, David Stockman, Lew Rockwell, Ron Paul, Phil Giraldi, Prof. Hunt Tooley, Jeff Deist, and RPI's Daniel McAdams have to say about it? You can watch the entire conference from the comfort of your home (or mobile device) here...

NATO Wants to Bring Us ‘As Close as Humanly Possible’ to War

The Senate vote to admitting Montenegro to NATO was not at all about US security or the US national interest, according to the Senators who voted for it. It was all about Russia. It was all about the "Russian threat." It's all about creating momentum for new NATO members even close to Russia, like Ukraine or Georgia. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed by RT America about the recent vote on Montenegro...

New Russia Sanctions ‘Underscore Vindictiveness & Pettiness’ of Obama Administration

How should the Russian president respond to President Obama's announcement yesterday of new US sanctions, the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, and the closing of two Russian government owned facilities in the US? He should ignore it, RPI Director Daniel McAdams tells RT. That would show how petty and vindictive -- and how weak -- the outgoing Obama Administration really is.

The Podesta Emails: Who's to Blame?

RPI Director Daniel McAdams is today's guest on Sputnik's Loud and Clear to discuss the Wikileaks release of thousands of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta. According to the Clinton camp -- and amplified by a compliant mainstream media -- the email hack is all the doing of the Russians, who are pulling out all stops to get Trump elected president. Are the Russians feeding intercepted material to Wikileaks to influence the US election? Does Putin really want Trump as president? How much proof does Clinton and the media have for their claims? Listen to the whole segment...

Gary Johnson and Bill Weld Presidential Campaign Dragging Libertarianism Through the Mud

Ron Paul Institute Senior Fellow Adam Dick, in a Wake Up Call Podcast interview posted on Friday, argues that Libertarian Party presidential and vice-presidential nominees Gary Johnson and Bill Weld have drug the term “libertarian” through the mud with their advocacy of anti-libertarian positions on matters ranging from their choices for Supreme Court appointments to PATRIOT Act reauthorization to foreign intervention to the use of terror watch lists to outlaw people possessing guns. 

Dick addresses the Libertarian presidential ticket during an in-depth discussion of his new book, A Tipping Point for Liberty: Exposing and Defeating Leviathan Government. During Dick’s interview with hosts Adam Camac and Daniel Laguros, the discussion is centered on topics examined in the book, including the development of a police state in America, the war on drugs, and United States wars abroad. It is when the conversation turns to the book’s section dealing with libertarianism that Dick presents an evaluation of the Libertarian presidential ticket.

The Drug War Built Leviathan Government; Drug War Backlash Can Defeat Leviathan Government

Interviewed Saturday on the Patriot’s Lament radio show on KFAR radio in Fairbanks, Alaska, Ron Paul Institute Senior Fellow Adam Dick zeroed in on the drug war as a major avenue for the expansion of government power at the expense of liberty. Yet, Dick also told hosts Joshua Bennett and Michael Anderson that the movement in recent decades of state and local governments to curtail the drug war shows a path to defeating the leviathan government that the drug war helped create.

UN Security Council May Arm Libyan Unity Gov’t to Fight ISIS

The UN Security Council today agreed on a plan to "train and equip" an army loyal to the Libyan "Government of National Accord" after US Secretary of State John Kerry made a strong case for the remilitarization of the conflict. The UN-created "Government of National Accord" may be supported by western governments, but it has virtually no support in Libya. It's unelected "presidential council" will be the real power behind the "unity" government, but so unpopular is the group that it had to be delivered to Libya from Tunisia via warship. Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams is interviewed on RT America with his take on today's dramatic move...
