Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell on Their Decades Promoting Liberty and Shared Optimism for the Future

This week on the Ron Paul Liberty Report, Ron Paul discussed with guest Lew Rockwell their many years working to advance liberty, as well as their shared optimism for the future. For people new to libertarian ideas, the engaging conversation is a good starting point for obtaining a feel for the fight for liberty in America since the 1970s and an understanding of the contributions made by Paul and Rockwell in that fight. For anyone brought down by the relentless advance of leviathan government, watching the interview may provide a jolt of assurance that there is hope for the cause of liberty.

Judge Napolitano: What if the US Consulate in Benghazi was a Terrorist Weapons Warehouse?

Judge Andrew Napolitano, in a new riveting two-minute video monologue, is asking important questions regarding the killings of the US ambassador to Libya, another diplomat, and CIA contractors in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Napolitano is also asking about the connection between these killings and a secret US program to provide weapons to terrorists.

Was the United States government handing out weapons in Libya to groups the US government had identified as terrorist organizations? Was the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi due to this illegal weapons transfer program? Napolitano wants answers, and he seems optimistic that answers will be revealed soon.

Former NSA Director Michael Hayden: It's 'Cool!' That Congress Has Not Restrained Mass Surveillance

Almost four months after ludicrously claiming to be an “unrelenting libertarian” while on stage with Ron Paul Institute Board Member Andrew Napolitano, Michael Hayden — whose rotation through high-level United States intelligence offices included several years as director of the National Security Agency (NSA) — has found some true common ground with Napolitano. Like Napolitano, Hayden is now on record declaring that the US mass surveillance program will continue unhindered by the recently enacted USA FREEDOM Act.

Your Money Flushed Away in Afghanistan...

Keeping abreast of the waste of U.S. taxpayer money in Afghanistan’s so-called “reconstruction” is a full-time job.

Since I already have a full-time job and can’t do it, luckily the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR) does document the waste as a full-time job.

Here are just a few updates.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe became last week the first South Dakota American Indian tribe to approve marijuana legalization. The approval came via the tribe’s executive committee voting on Thursday to adopt a legalization ordinance. 

The tribe’s reservation is located in South Dakota, a state that still outlaws medical and recreational marijuana.

Planet Jeb

Jeb Bush officially joined the 2016 White House race Monday. He promises to be an outsider -- "not just another member of the club." Don't dare call the third Bush coveting the presidency a blue-blood. He is not "among the pampered elites of Washington."

His mission is to prevent 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from being "passed on from one liberal to the next."

And echoing his brother's promise of a humble foreign policy, Jeb's main attack on the Obama administration is that "they have failed to be the peacemakers."

Small Victory: Decades-Old Database of Nevada Handgun Owners to be Destroyed

In this age of mass surveillance, it is uncommon to hear of the destroying of a government’s surveillance database — even if in just one American county. Yet, that is what the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is preparing to do.

As required by Senate Bill 175 that the Nevada governor signed into law on June 2, the police department appears set to destroy, within a year, all physical and digital records of handgun owners that the police department has accumulated under a Clark County registration requirement implemented in 1948.

US Joint Chief Dempsey to Israel: We Will Defend You

The United States is more than $18 trillion dollars in debt, but like a teenager with a credit card it continues to take on financial obligations seemingly without a care in the world. Maintaining a world empire requires the US to hemorrhage wealth to defend its dominant position against any real or perceived upstart nation-threat. Even if that "threat" comes from the world's second largest economy, China, it seems.

Last month President Obama promised to put the US military at the disposal of the despotic, head-chopping Saudi regime. As the Saudi-Iranian cold war heats up, this commitment if honored could run up incalculable costs in dollars and American lives. The US already backs Saudi aggression against Yemen and the Saudi financing of al-Qaeda and ISIS to take down Assad in Syria. Will the US join in a potential global war that may emerge from a Shia-Sunni conflagration?

Judge Napolitano: Prosecute ‘Hothead’ McKinney Pool Party Cop

The resignation on Tuesday of McKinney, Texas policeman Eric Casebolt after the widespread viewing of a video showing Casebolt drawing his gun and brutalizing a teenager outside a pool party may not be enough to bring justice, suggests Judge Andrew Napolitano. Napolitano, in a Fox Business interview, argues that it would be proper to prosecute Casebolt.
