Ron Paul's New Book 'The Revolution at Ten Years': Get Your Personalized Copy!

Early in his new book, The Revolution at Ten Years, Ron Paul writes this synopsis of our current situation:
Though the 'Revolution' of 2007 is essentially forgotten in a political sense, the ideology that inspired it is very much alive, and the anger and loss of confidence in our current system continues to grow.
That captures our current situation perfectly. As we all know, a political campaign can capture the imagination and garner huge, banner-waving crowds. But even a winning political campaign is a temporary phenomenon. As we know, a successful political campaign can be very quickly followed by disappointment and regret.

Mike Pence’s Expensive Stunt

It may have cost taxpayers over $88,000 for Vice President Pence to fly to Indianapolis and then walk out on the football game because some players knelt during the national anthem. Pence tweeted: “I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.” President Trump then tweeted that he had instructed Pence to leave the game if players knelt.

How George Clooney Was Asked to Spy on Gadaffi, Before Hillary Clinton Decided to Destroy Libya

George Clooney has played many spies on the big screen.

George Clooney was a perfect candidate to spy on Libya and help the globalist cabal, under Hillary Clinton, dismantle what used to be the richest and most prosperous nation in Africa.

Clooney is the latest celebrity to be linked in documents from within the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, asking the hollywood star to spy on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and his generals in Libya.

ICC chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo, asked several celebrities, including Cooney, to help in bringing war crimes committed by Colonel Gaddafi and his generals during the Libyan civil war to light.

Ron Paul: Common Sense and Diplomacy are ‘Off the Table’ Regarding North Korea

Talking Monday with host Scott Horton at the Scott Horton Show, nonintervention advocate Ron Paul bemoaned that, while the Trump administration says that nothing is off the table in relation to what the US government may do concerning North Korea, something is off the table, namely, “common sense and diplomacy.”

In the interview, Paul both discusses his concerns about moves toward a US war against North Korea and reflects on the abuse of the authorization for use of military force (AUMF) that Congress passed in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks in America.

A Libertarian Perspective on Separatist Movements

With separatist movements in the northern Iraq region of the Kurds, and in Catalonia, grabbing headlines, it is an appropriate time to think about such movements.

Murray Rothbard once wrote:
There runs through For a New Liberty (and most of the rest of my work as well) a deep and pervasive hatred of the State and all of its works, based on the conviction that the State is the enemy of mankind. 
This is an understandable position for anyone who is an advocate of a Private Property Society.  It is sound and noble. Noble, because although sound, it goes against the perspective of the masses and the house intellectuals.

If we take this Rothbard insight of hate of the state as our guiding light, what should we make of separatist movements?

'Clear That DHS Was Wrong': California Says Russians Did Not Hack Voting Systems

Last Friday the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) dropped a "bombshell" statement that sent a "thrill up the leg" (to quote Chris Matthews) of every CNN reporter across the country.  The news from DHS implied that the election systems of 21 states around the country had been hacked, or at least were close to being hacked, which set off a new wave "Russian collusion" speculation in the U.S. news media (see: DHS Notifies 21 States Of Hacker Targeting; Election Officials Blame "Russian Government Cyber Actors").

That said, according to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla who released a statement this morning in response to the DHS, the whole thing was just a bunch of "fake news."  Padilla noted that after requesting additional information from DHS on the "hacks" it quickly became clear that their "conclusions were wrong" and that "California's elections infrastructure and websites were not hacked or breached by Russian cyber actors.”

Ron Paul Urges Americans to Resist Deep State and Media Push for War on North Korea

We are seeing now in regard to North Korea a replay of the type of campaign the deep state and the media used in 2001 through 2003 to stir up the American people to support the invasion of Iraq. This is the assessment of former United States House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul in a Tuesday interview with Alex Jones on the Alex Jones Show.
