In interviews Monday and Tuesday, Judge Andrew Napolitano explains the Monday United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruling that certain US National Security Agency mass spying activities are “almost certainly unconstitutional”—a ruling that buttresses Napolitano’s column last week describing such mass spying as a criminal conspiracy to violate rights guaranteed by the US Constitution.

Ron Paul: Freedom Is Not a Partisan Issue

Speaking Friday with Charles Goyette in their weekly podcast conversation, RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul discusses his recommendations for young people interested in becoming involved in politics, including Paul’s guidance that people may advance freedom under various party labels. Paul welcomes advancing freedom under party labels including Democrat, Green, Libertarian, and Republican.

Larry McDonald who served in the House as a Democrat.

One by one, the former communist countries of central Europe fell for the temptations of EU membership.

Ukraine: Bullied and Blackmailed?

It has been called the most important news you may have missed. After a long consideration Ukraine has turned against a European Union offer of associated membership, refusing to sign an agreement that would have brought the former Soviet Republic into the EU political orbit.

As one might expect, the Western mainstream media has portrayed Ukraine's rejection of an "Eastern partnership" as a turn away from civilized democracy and toward the "autocracy" of Russia's Putin. In fact, one reads the Russian president's name in such articles more often than that of his Ukrainian counterpart.
