Rep. Walter Jones on Foreign Policy: 'We in America are in the Eleventh Hour'

Walter Jones (R-NC), an RPI Advisory Board member, discusses in-depth in a Friday C-SPAN Washington Journal interview his opposition to continued borrowing and spending for the United States to “police the world.” Jones says in the 33 minutes interview that the US, like empires through history, is harmed by its foreign intervention and that “we in America are in the eleventh hour of a twelve hour clock.”

Ron Paul Appears in Movies Based on Novels Atlas Shrugged and Alongside Night

Is former Member of the United States House of Representatives and current RPI Chairman Ron Paul “going Hollywood?” Not quite, he is still living in Texas and focused on protecting freedom. But, according to media reports, Paul has small roles in new movies based on Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and J. Neil Schulman’s Alongside Night. Both novels deal with oppressive governments and people acting to protect their freedom.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: No New US War in Iraq

Speaking Thursday on Fox News, RPI Advisory Board Member Andrew Napolitano explains that the United States government engaging in another war in Iraq would be contrary to US national interests as was the US invading and making war on Iraq in 2003. That prior Iraq war, Napolitano notes, destabilized Iraq and cost America much in lost lives and money. Napolitano adds that “the American public will not tolerate another war.”

Ethnic Cleansing Coming in East Ukraine -- McAdams Speaks WIth Scott Horton

RPI Director Daniel McAdams is on the Scott Horton Show this week, discussing what is going on in Ukraine while everyone is paying attention to the disintegration of Iraq. The shelling of Slavyansk continues while the danger of US-sanctioned ethnic cleansing of Russian speakers from eastern Ukraine. Why does the US government continue to ignore the shelling of civilian population centers and praise the "restraint" of the Kiev regime?

Is Ron Paul the San Antonio Spurs of American Politics?

Many basketball fans are marveling at the San Antonio Spurs winning on Sunday night the team’s fifth nonconsecutive National Basketball Association championship. Cato Institute Executive Vice President David Boaz suggests at his institute’s website that people should also marvel at RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul’s similar, and unmatched, United States House of Representatives­­ electoral accomplishments.

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.
