Ron Paul: Help Neither the Iraq Government Nor the Insurgents

RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, in a US News and World Reports article Friday, succinctly addresses what the United States government should do in response to insurgents gaining greater control over parts of Iraq in the last few days. Contrary to the popular Washington, DC interventionist mindset that says the US government should aid one side or the other (or even both sides) in every conflict around the world, Paul says the US should just stay out of it.

State Department Claims Russian Tanks in Ukraine

Seems like it was only yesterday when we wrote about Secretary of State John Kerry's bold public statements on Russian involvement in eastern Ukraine, and then his private pleas to the new Ukrainian president for some evidence -- anything, please! -- to back up his publicly confident claims.

This follows earlier bold claims of photographic proof of Russian involvement that the regime-serving New York Times dutifully reprinted, but then had to shamefully retract after it proved to be yet another State Department deception.

Well they are at it again! And again with no proof. 

Today the State Department spokesperson boldly claimed that the Russians had sent in to eastern Ukraine a "column of three T-64 tanks, several BM-21 'Grad' multiple rocket launchers, and other military vehicles..."

Fall of Saigon Moment for US Embassy Baghdad?

As Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) forces continue to move ever closer Baghdad, the possibility increases of the billion dollar, Vatican City-sized, US Embassy compound being over-run by al-Qaeda linked Islamists.

The Obama regime ponders drone strikes and the deployment of more US weapons to its allies in Iraq, the Maliki government. The government of Iran -- also on Maliki's side -- is said to have deployed Revolutionary Guard forces into Iraq to help out. 

Ironic that the US may well be fighting with Iranian forces against the same ISIS forces that it has been supporting in Syria to overthrow Assad.

Iraq to US: 'Please Bomb Us Again'; Obama: 'OK'

As the radical Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues its march through the US-trained Iraqi army like a knife through butter in the Baghdad sun, the US-backed Maliki government is looking its collapse square in the eyes. 

What to do? Ask Washington for Gulf War III! So that is exactly what Baghdad did, requesting US airstrikes on Iraqi territory to fight back the ISIS. Obama, for his part, has made it clear that "all options are on the table."

Nowhere in recent memory has the absurdity and counter-productivity of interventionism been so apparent as in these recent dramatic developments in Iraq. The same ISIS that is laying siege to Iraq is the same ISIS whose base in Syria has been so bolstered by US shipments of weapons to the Syrian rebels. In other words, ISIS has used Washington's support in Syria to attack Washington-backed Iraq.

Ron Paul: Legal Pot, Not SWAT

Ron Paul addresses Monday on the Ron Paul Channel the menacing militarization of police in the United States. Paul, the chairman and founder of RPI, explains the problem extends from small towns obtaining military combat vehicles to United States government agencies buying up vast amounts of weapons and ammunition to police employing over 40,000 SWAT team raids each year.

Paul also notes in the commentary that crime in Denver has decreased following the legalization of marijuana in Colorado. Paul wonders if Colorado may be on to something—less laws are a better means than militarized police to reduce crime.

John Kerry Caught in Lie to Promote War With Russia

We all remember Secretary of State John Kerry lying through this teeth last summer, when he swore that US intelligence reports proving that Syria used chemical weapons in Ghouta were “as clear as they are compelling.” However, the US administration never provided any proof of Syria government responsibility and now we know why: there was none

Kerry was all bluster and bluff, and when that became obvious his boss was forced to back down from plans to bomb Syria.

Well Kerry is back at it again. Bluster and bluff about "proof" while simultaneously desperately seeking evidence.

Washington Post At War With Reality on Ukraine

Anyone reading the Washington Post's coverage of Ukraine and Russia over the past several months knows well that when it comes to fealty to the regime, the Post makes the USSR's Pravda look like a samizdat. As long as the US administration has Russia in its sights, the Post is panting like a dog in D.C.'s summer sun.

Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt and his sidekick Jackson Diehl are the neocon dynamic duo who keep the hate flowing, and nothing is too sensational for its appearance as gospel on Fred's page. Fred and Jackson, as Consortium News points out, are the same guys who solemnly assured us in 2002-2003 that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.

In normal jobs, people get fired for being incompetent, for constantly getting it wrong. Not Washington Post propagandists.
