The Great American Spy Caper

Poor James Clapper. The Director of National Intelligence -- a superfluous position born of the Intelligence Community's failures on 9/11 -- was again dragged before Capitol Hill, this time to explain the highly embarrassing revelations that the NSA had been monitoring the personal communications of allied state leaders. Last time he was forced to lie that the NSA was not monitoring our phone calls. This time he may have been telling an inconvenient truth.

Does Anyone Believe Obama Did Not Know?

So Sen. Feinstein as Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, did not know what the NSA did and does?  Is this some sort of sick joke? Agencies like the NSA, CIA, DIA, etc. are quick to brief key members of Congress and the president about their accomplishments.  Boasting is the order of the day in the contest for appropriations. So, just accept the fact that our “seeker after justice,” President Obama, knew all about it, all of it.

Ron Paul's Push to End War on Pain Doctors -- Fresh Attacks!

The US Food and Drug Administration's announcement Thursday that it supports adding more pain medications to Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act is a critical step in expanding through regulatory fiat the US government's war on pain doctors and their patients that RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul fought to end in the US House of Representatives.

Paul, both a doctor and US Representative, sought on July 7, 2004 to end the health and justice crisis through offering an amendment to the Department of Justice appropriations bill. Paul's amendment was ruled out of order after it was debated on the House floor, preventing it from receiving a vote. The Congressional Record excerpt below contains Paul's amendment and his House floor speech in the debate. With the FDA proposing expanding the devastating war on pain doctors and their patients, Paul's speech is more relevant now than ever.

McCain Taken Down Over Support for Al-Qaeda

No more wool over their eyes, Americans continue to demand answers from political leaders like Senator John McCain over the US "we have always been at war with Eastsaia" policy in the Middle East.

Witness this amazing video, in which Senator McCain settled in to what he expected to be a nice friendly townhall meeting about Obamacare. Soon he found himself confronted by a well-informed and angry constituent demanding to know why the Senator supports al-Qaeda in Syria.

Syrian Chemical Weapons Facilities Under Rebel Control?

One of the U.S. government’s main arguments for why we are supposed to have concluded that Syrian government forces were responsible for the August chemical weapons attack in Damascus is that the rebels being armed by the U.S., whose ranks include al-Qaeda affiliated Islamic extremists, didn’t have access to such weapons. But now inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) — which are in Syria disarming its stockpiles after the government under President Bashar al-Assad declared its possession of CW and agreed to allow the teams in for that purpose — are asking to also visit CW sites that were captured by the rebels and are under their control.

US Mass Spying Targets Mexico Presidents to Advance the Drug War

In contrast to the counter-terrorism narrative used to defend the US government's mass spying program, unfolding revelations suggest the program's Latin America efforts are focused on much besides terrorism. First, evidence arose that the US spying program, alone and in coordination with spying programs of other nations, is engaging in industrial espionage against Brazilian companies and the Brazil government's mines and energy ministry. Now, new revelations suggest that the US spying program targeted current and former Mexican presidents, along with other high level Mexican government officials, for surveillance to advance the war on drugs.
