Tom Woods plays devil's advocate on Iran negotiations! And what's next in Syria now that the Saudis decided to start writing more checks to the insurgents?

Remember Armistice Day With Shane

Despite what they might say, today, November 11th, is Armistice Day. It is a day meant to be grateful for the end of a horrific war and the supposed end of wars. A day to pause and reflect on the horrors of an entire continent, an entire civiliztation destroyed by the madness of war. To mourn the dead, the senseless slaughter.

Ron Paul: 'I Would Not Carry a Gun for the Government'

When I was thinking of the URL for my new personal homepage, I considered many possibilities. Thanks also to all those who sent other suggestions. But I settled on RonPaulMD.com as reflecting a very important area of my life. To be a physician, and deliver 4,000 babies, was extremely fulfilling. 

Many times, I see people wearing a “I Was a Ron Paul Baby” t-shirt. Once, when I gave a speech in Iowa, I was told the head of the convention center wanted to talk to me. She had her birth certificate, and this time, she said, she wanted a legible signature! I was delighted to sign it again.

Is Syria Burning?

Remember the hopeful and optimistic "Arab Spring" narrative that the mainstream media introduced when Syria was hit by unrest in the spring of 2011? We were told by media outlet after media outlet that it was a pro-democracy movement made up of Syrians demanding more freedom and an end to one-party rule. The people were all with the revolution, we were told, which only reluctantly turned violent after Assad brutally suppressed the peaceful protests. The average Syrians, we were told, were all in favor of the overthrow of Assad.

City Voters Legalize Liquor Stores and Marijuana

Eighty years after the Twenty-First Amendment to the United States Constitution ended the US government's prohibition on alcohol, Jeff Mosier reports in the Dallas Morning News that in elections Tuesday residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex cities of Arlington and Lewisville voted to legalize liquor stores in their cities. Mosier explains that the election results in these cities with respective populations of around 365,000 and 100,000 are part of a trend over the last decade of Texans voting to ease local legal restrictions related to alcohol.

Breaking: Obama's Syria Allies Bomb Vatican Embassy

In keeping with recent practice of bombing the diplomatic facilities which oppose their struggle to overthrow the Syria government, the insurgents in Syria have hit the Vatican Embassy with a mortar shell today.

Targetting the Vatican embassy was likely no accident. As the US was on the verge of bombing Syria in late-August, the pope held a peace vigil at the Vatican attended by more than 100,000. As support for a US attack sagged among the American public and in Congress, this Vatican effort to head off a US war on behalf of the anti-Assad fighters was certainly of great significance. It may have been a deciding factor.

Intel Chairman Hypes Terrorism Deaths

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) seems to be taking a page from his beloved NSA. In an effort to make the claim that spying on the rest of us is more necessary than ever, Rogers has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into the "terrorism" basket. In this way, he has greatly hyped "terrorism" deaths in 2012.

Kerry Returns to Hold Saudi Hands

Saudi Arabia's recent North Korea-like cry for US attention -- announcing it was downgrading ties with its most important ally -- was all just drama for the camera. US Secretary of State John Kerry answered the plea of a weepy ally and again rushed to the Middle East to hold hands with his Saudi counterpart, Saud al Faisal. The ties have been mended, it seems, all is forgiven.

The Saudis were miffed that the hundreds of millions of dollars they spent to overthrow Syrian president Assad have not done the trick, and that in light of their failure the US had not taken up their fight in a more assertive manner. A last minute US pull-back from war, brokered by the Russians, left the Saudis without any muscle to back up their money.
