Judge Napolitano on Obama Helping 'Targeted Killings Memo' Author Become Judge

Judge Andrew Napolitano, speaking with Shepard Smith on Fox News, denounces President Barack Obama’s ongoing delay in providing the legal arguments used to justify the executive branch’s “targeted killings” program. In particular, Napolitano criticizes Obama’s refusal to provide the memorandum describing the legal argument for the US government using a drone to kill US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. Obama’s delay, Napolitano says, will mean that the United States Senate will have approved the lifetime appointment of David Barron, the memo’s author, to a US federal court before the memorandum is made public.

Toothless USA FREEDOM Act Losing Support

The USA FREEDOM Act (HR 3361), which is supposedly designed to thwart the US government’s mass spying program, appears to be confirming RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams’ warning from September: “beware NSA spying and beware the PATRIOT Act and beware FISA reauthorizations. But most of all...keep your eyes on the reformers!”

The stench from the USA FREEDOM Act has grown so obvious that privacy-related interest groups are renouncinghttp://thehill.com/policy/technology/206686-privacy-advocates-pull-support-for-watered-down-usa-freedom their support of the bill after the bill, which had already passed through the committee approval process, was revised Tuesday to gain the Obama administration’s support.

NATO Aims To Repeat Its Libya 'Success' In Ukraine

As NATO and its US masters edge the US and EU closer to war with Russia over Ukraine, it might be appropriate to have a look at NATO's last "success" story.

Yesterday in Libya, where NATO bombs fell just over three years ago to "liberate" the people from Gaddafi, Islamist militias in Benghazi were under helicopter and warplane attack by a paramilitary force headed by former general Khalifa Haftar. The former general first emerged in Libya back in 2011, having left his long-time home base in the US state of Virginia where his ties to the CIA were an open secret.

Ron Paul: The Ukraine Fuse Has Been Lit

Ron Paul and Charles Goyette discuss the ongoing crisis in Ukraine and a new Senate bill that seeks to push the US to the very brink of war with Russia -- a bill that appropriates $10 billion to push regime change in Russia!

The bill is called the Russian Agression Prevention Act, so, Ron Paul says, you can believe the opposite: it will be US aggression against Russia.

Is Today 'Lie about Ron Paul in Headlines Day'?

Looking at the Washington Post and Rare, one has to wonder if today is Lie about Ron Paul in Headlines Day.

First, the Washington Post published an article with the headline “Ron Paul thinks drug use is rampant inside prisons. He’s wrong.” That is a rather provocative claim. But, the claim is not at all backed up by the article. Paul, who is the chairman and founder of RPI, is quoted in the article’s first sentence

Ron Paul: Victory For Peace Candidate Walter Jones is Great News

The war party did everything they could to defeat pro-peace Republican Walter Jones in the North Carolina primary last week, said Ron Paul, but in the end Rep. Jones prevailed. One important lesson from the victory, Dr. Paul pointed out, was that you can represent a district with a heavy US military presence and still oppose the unnecessary wars urged by the US neocons. The American public is rapidly waking up to the necessity of a non-interventionist foreign policy, said Dr. Paul, and they are coming to understand that the real isolationists are the ones who demand sanctions and tariffs on other countries.
