Forget ISIS: Russia and China Biggest Threat Says Pentagon

According to the newly released Military Strategy of the United States, 2015, the real threats are no longer the terrorism of non-state actors but rather Russia, China, Iran, and any other state that challenges US global hegemony. This even though the document makes it clear that these countries have no intention of attacking the United States. Confused? Tune in to the Ron Paul Liberty Report...

Army Troop Cuts - A Propaganda Ploy?

Press reports that the US Army would cut 40,000 troops are meant to terrify the American people into demanding an increase in military spending - even though the US spends more than all developed countries combined. The truth is US military spending is going to increase with or without those 40,000 troops and with or without the "sequester." The US is spending itself into bankruptcy. Today's Ron Paul Liberty Report on the false propaganda of a shrinking military...

RPI's Adam Dick Tells Alaska Radio Listeners of Politicians Gone Bad

On Saturday, July 4, Ron Paul Institute Senior Fellow Adam Dick took Fairbanks, Alaska KFAR radio listeners on a tour of American politicians gone bad. Taking calls and speaking with Patriot’s Lament show hosts Joshua Bennett, Michael Anderson, and Aaron Bennet, Dick discusses American politicians illegally providing weapons to groups on the United States government’s terror list, preparing to purge the Confederate battle flag, and stealing money from people via asset forfeiture laws.

New Ron Paul Book!

Ron has written many important books, but I think his latest is the most important for our time: Swords into Plowshares. Ron, movingly and eloquently, describes his lifetime of perpetual war, beginning with the horrific WWII, but shows us how to dream of, and achieve, a future free of war and other forms of state violence.

Greeks Vote No: Keynesian Crisis Continues

Greece's vote against the EU bailout offer raises as many questions as it answers. What happens next? We know the debt will not disappear. Eventually it will have to be liquidated and Greece will have to start over if it is ever going to be a "normal" country again. On today's Liberty Report, Ron Paul offers his suggestions for a way out of the Greek crisis...

Will Texas Nix Marriage Licensing? Yes — if Rep. David Simpson Gets His Way

Texas state Rep. David Simpson (R-Longview) has an intriguing response to Obergefell v. Hodges, the United States Supreme Court decision imposing a national mandate to override the diverse ways in which state governments deal with same sex marriage. Simpson is asking Texas Governor Greg Abbott to declare a special session of the state legislature to consider Simpson’s proposal that Texas end marriage licensing in the state.

Simpson’s radical response to the court’s decision should not be too surprising given that earlier this year he responded to the war on marijuana with a bill that would eliminate all Texas laws regarding marijuana so the plant would be treated the same as tomatoes, jalapeños, or coffee. Also, back in 2011, Simpson responded to the US Transportation Security Administration’s frisking of travelers with legislation that would hold TSA employees accountable for such actions under state assault prohibitions.

Hillary Arms Terrorists, Greece Wastes $ on Military: Week in Review With McAdams and Taylor

Hillary oversaw US arms shipments to terrorists fighting in Libya and Syria according to Judge Napolitano. Why is no one interested in the story? Both parties support regime change. The half-billion dollar program to train "moderate" Syrian rebels is a disaster. Part of the reason Greece's credit card is maxed out is that the death-dealers in western capitals convinced them to spend an obscene level of their GDP on weapons. This and more as RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins Jay Taylor to look at the week that was on the Ron Paul Institute website...

On Celebrating Dependence Day

I shall spend the remainder of this July 4th hiding beneath my bed, with as many pillows packed around me as I can find. I have not forgotten the important “duck-and-cover” strategy in which we were conditioned to protect us from Cold War-era nuclear attacks. I am ready for the impending “terrorist” attack that government officials and their media lackeys inform us is likely to occur, although they admit to a total lack of evidence of such a threat! 

I am reminded of the warnings of a Nebraska state legislator who, at the height of the McCarthy crusades, told us that communists were embedded within the faculty of the state university. When told that there was no evidence to support his claim, he replied “the lack of evidence only shows how sinister and well-organized is their presence.”
