RPI's Daniel McAdams on Laura Ingraham Show

RPI Director Daniel McAdams was on the Laura Ingraham Show this past week with guest host the great Charles Goyette. Daniel and Charles discussed the real costs of the US interventionist foreign policy. What will be the economic fallout of the new round of US sanctions on Russia? McAdams pointed out the socialism and corporatism at the core of the of the US military keeping sea lanes open for corporations. We pay for their security, they privatize their profits.

Dennis Kucinich: Congress Should Recognize That Palestinians Exist

One of the few regrets I have in not being a member of the 113th US Congress is that I was not present in the House chambers to oppose H.Res.657, which passed by a voice vote, supporting Israel without mentioning the Palestinians.

Congress missed a huge opportunity to stand for peace in the Middle East, recognizing and backing Israel under attack by Hamas, while ignoring issues of illegal settlement building, the desperate conditions inside Gaza, the Israeli government’s subversion of Palestinian unity and the insufficiency of the Cairo initiative which amounted to non-negotiable demands.

Ron Paul: 'Who Are the Real Isolationists?'

Who are the real isolationists? Ron Paul tells Fox Business it is those who demand sanctions on Russia, Cuba, Iran, and any other country that does not follow the dictates of Washington.

Tired of US Spying, Germany? Here's Some Good Advice...

Germany is reeling from ongoing revelations about the extent of the US spying operation against the country, as at least two spies have been uncovered burrowed into German intelligence, the BND.

Animosity toward the US government is on the increase among German politicians, who foolishly believed they had a special relationship with the US government that precluded such hostile activities.

Eric Cantor's Final Assault

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) may have lost his primary to a relatively unknown challenger, but that does not mean he is going quietly into that good night. His long track record of ramming through the House the most one-sided resolutions praising the actions of the Israeli government (as long as those actions involve attacks on Arabs and not attempts to make peace) continues apace even as his time in the House draws to a close.

As Israel's American-made F-16s continue to deliver American-made bombs, paid for by the US taxpayer, on Gaza, where more than 150 Palestinians have been killed, Cantor takes time out to applaud the passage of yet another House Resolution praising Israel's actions.

Dennis Kucinich on America's Dangerous, Anti-Democratic Path

Who will protect us from our government? That is a central question I have after reading the Washington Post's publication of NSA intercepts given to them by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The article describes an "exponential" increase in NSA spying on American citizens, gathering and storing information about deeply personal, private matters of the heart, health, and finances. 

What has happened is that under the guise of security, our government has annihilated each individual American's sphere of privacy. I warned of this when, as a member of Congress, I led opposition to the Patriot Act as well as opposing FISA legislation.
