Ron Paul: Trump Will Win Nomination Despite Convention Tricks, but May Face Third-Party Challenger

Speaking Friday with hosts John Berman and Kate Bolduan at CNN, former three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul predicted that shady maneuvers, like the rules changes and replacement of delegates used against Paul at the 2012 Republican National Convention, will be used against Trump at the upcoming 2016 party convention. Paul says, however, that he believes Trump will win the Republican nomination despite such “establishment” efforts.

Syrians Free to Choose Future...As Long As Washington Likes Their Choice

Anyone wondering just how bad is US foreign policy need only turn to the daily press briefing by the US State Department for an answer. And let me tell you, the answer is it's really, really bad. Yesterday's briefing was at the same time one for the record books and par for the course, as State Department Spokesman Admiral John Kirby tried to explain Washington's uber-incoherent Syria policy.

First, AP diplomatic reporter Matt Lee -- an excellent journalist -- asked Kirby to explain Washington's opposition to a Kurdish group in Syria announcing the creation of an autonomous Kurdish area inside Syria. After all, observed Lee, Washington does not believe Assad has the legitimacy to govern Syria so the Kurds are not encouraged to put themselves under the control of the current government in Damascus.

Ron Paul: Bernie Sanders is Principled, but Not Consistently Antiwar

Fox Business host Kennedy asked Ron Paul on Wednesday to address the similarities between Paul and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), whose presidential campaign, Kennedy noted, has much support from young people as did Paul’s presidential campaigns.

Paul responded that Sanders is a principled individual — just as Paul was in presidential campaigns and as a Republican US House of Representatives member from Texas. This, Paul suggests, appeals to young people who are “idealistic” and “willing to listen to different viewpoints” instead of being “locked in place” in political views as “middle aged and older people” more often are. The appeal of the two candidates to young people also arises, Paul suggests, from young people believing Paul and Sanders “are telling the truth” and “are not just giving them a lot of political talk.”

Judge Napolitano: Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee is Pro-Government on Big Constitutional Issues

Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and former New Jersey State Judge Andrew Napolitano declared in a Fox News interview today that President Barack Obama’s new Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland is “almost always on the side of the government” on matters related to several constitutional provisions. This conclusion, Napolitano explains, is based on Napolitano’s initial review of Garland’s activities as a federal judge over the last 19 years.

US Setting Up African Quagmire

In a Tuesday interview with host Scott Horton on the Scott Horton Show, international affairs writer Eric Margolis presented some of the steps taken so far to repeat in Africa the US intervention failures of the Middle East.

Don’t Put Your Faith in Apple, Judges, or Congress to Protect Your Privacy

If we put our faith in technology company Apple, the United States courts, or the US Congress to protect our privacy, we may well find ourselves sorely disappointed. That is the message of Ron Paul Institute Senior Fellow Adam Dick in a newly released interview on the Wake Up Call Podcast.

Speaking with hosts Adam Camac and Daniel Laguros, Dick explores the legislative and judicial battle over whether the US government can require Apple and other companies to help the government access individuals’ private electronic information that is protected by passcodes, encryption, and other security measures.

While Apple is taking a turn as privacy hero in some recent court disputes, Dick notes the company also has a history of aiding the government in accessing private information on electronic devices.

Andrew Napolitano Examines Hillary Clinton’s ‘Continuing Pattern of Lying’ in Email Scandal

Former New Jersey State Judge Andrew Napolitano says in a new video editorial that it is part of Hillary Clinton’s “continuing pattern of lying” to claim her actions related to her private email server while she was United States secretary of state were not criminal and were like actions taken by her predecessors in the office. Napolitano further explains that Clinton’s claim seems wrong in two ways. First, her actions appear to be criminal. Second, her predecessors did nothing like what she did.
