Saudi Arabia Prevents Yemeni Govt Returning to South Yemen

Making it less and less clear what Saudi Arabia’s ultimate intentions in the Yemen War are at this point, reports out of Riyadh say that the “Saudi-backed” Yemeni government is effectively under house arrest within the Saudi capital, and being actively prevented from returning to southern Yemen.

Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen in 2015, vowing to reinstall President Hadi, who had previously resigned, and whose term in office had long since run out. After Saudi forces captured the southern coast of Yemen, they made a big show of sending Hadi and other officials from his “government-in-exile” to the port city of Aden, making it a “temporary capital” of Yemen.

Intel Committee Demands Fusion GPS Bank Records; Suspects Journalists Paid To Spread 'Russian Collusion' Claims

For nearly a year now we've all been inundated with 24x7 media coverage of the "Russian Collusion" narrative which suggests, among other things, that various members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian operatives to obtain damaging information on Hillary Clinton and then used social media to spread that damaging information far and wide, thus causing Hillary's inevitable second failed bid for the White House.

That said, what if it wasn't the Trump administration, but rather the Hillary campaign and Democrats who were guilty of all the "Russian Collusion" crimes they've been screaming about for the better part of year now? 

Of course, we already know that it was Hillary's campaign and the DNC that paid for the Trump dossier (see: Hillary Clinton Lied, Paid For "Trump Dossier").  We also know that most of the sources listed in the dossier were based in Russia and include a "senior Kremlin official" as well as other "close associates of Vladimir Putin." 

Moreover, as CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell noted recently, it's highly likely that some portion of the funds paid to Perkins Coie by the DNC and Hillary campaign made it's way into the pockets of those "senior Kremlin officials" as compensation for their services.

How Ron Paul Hopes People Will One Day Honor His Legacy

Libertarian communicator Ron Paul answered a peculiar and interesting concluding question in a recent interview on the Outer Limits of Inner Truth show: How would Paul like people to honor him after his death? Paul’s answer to host Ryan McCormick’s question focuses on the importance of people doing what Paul has sought to do over the last few decades, including in the United States House of Representatives, presidential runs, and educational efforts such as the Ron Paul Institute — learn about and promote liberty.

Turning Singing of the National Anthem at Sporting Events into a Police and Military Support Ritual

Saturday evening I walked through my living room where game four of the World Series was playing. On the field four cops were singing the national anthem before the thousands of people gathered at the stadium and the millions more watching on TV.

After seeing this, I sent an email to Joshua Bennett, telling him I had just seen an example of what I had talked about earlier that day on his radio show Patriot’s Lament on KFAR radio in Fairbanks, Alaska.

RPI's Daniel McAdams: Twitter's Decision to Ban Ads From RT, Sputnik 'is About Politics'

The tech giant announced it would no longer allow ads from the two Russian media outlets to run on its platforms, citing allegations that they meddled in the 2016 US presidential election as the motive behind its decision. Sputnik discussed the issue with Daniel McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.

Twitter said on its blog recently that its decision to ban RT and Sputnik's advertising was based "on the retrospective work we've been doing around the 2016 US election."

Following the statement, RT published Twitter's election advertising sales pitch, which demonstrates that the tech giant was vying for millions of dollars from RT in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election.

In an interview with Radio Sputnik, US analyst Daniel McAdams commented on the issue by saying that Twitter's move was politically motivated and that Russia's "demonization" is unlikely to be over.

Sputnik: RT actually published a Twitter ad pitched to them. They also revealed that they rejected the offer and decided on a very basic ad plan. Will this possibly put an end to the witch hunt?

Daniel McAdams: No, I don't think it will because I don't think it's based on anything rational. First of all, the real collusion is the collusion between the mega-companies like Twitter and Facebook and the US government. Twitter's move is clearly meant to head off the coming testimony that Twitter, Google and Facebook are going to have in the House and the Senate, intelligence units. They will be able to go there and show the government how they are cracking down on RT and Sputnik and it can be currying some favor. So, this is really all about politics more than anything else.

Cuba - US Diplomats Retreat In Horror ... Because ... 'Crickets'

This incident earlier this month will probably go down in the annals as the most stupid diplomatic foul-up ever:
President Trump on Tuesday expelled 15 Cuban diplomats, escalating his response to a mysterious affliction that has stricken American Embassy personnel in Havana in a move that cast a Cold War chill over relations between the two countries. 
...
American diplomats and their spouses began reporting symptoms that included hearing loss, dizziness, balance and visual problems, headaches and cognitive issues last December. By late January, the State Department realized that the illnesses were related and might have resulted from some sort of attack, perhaps by a sonic device, toxin or virus.
The US diplomats were hearing strange noises at night. This within certain parts of their embassy as well as in some homes. Lots of mischief was suspected - from huge infrasound weapons to food poisoning. But no technical or medical explanation was found. The State Department described the noise as "specific attacks" on its diplomats. At least 21 were affected and half of the US staff in Havana was ordered home. Cuban diplomats were expelled from the US

Niger Ambush Serves as Excuse for AFRICOM to Seek More Funds

The October 4 ambush in Niger that killed four US special forces members forced the Pentagon to admit that they had been routinely carrying out ground patrols inside Niger, but African command (AFRICOM) may be cashing in on the incident.

With the revelation that there are US military operations ongoing in Niger and countless other countries, AFRICOM is noting that they’d requested a lot more military equipment than they got, and some of that might conceivably have come in handy during the ambush.

RPI's Daniel McAdams: ‘Report Listing RT’s Guests is Designed to Intimidate'

A new report by a US-funded Czech think tank that targeted RT’s on-air guests is an attempt to stifle any views that go outside the accepted US neocon foreign policy of interventionism, Daniel McAdams, executive director of the Ron Paul Institute, told RT.

The group, called “European Values Think-Tank,” released a supposedly damning report about RT, criticizing over 2,300 experts who shared their views on the channel.
The institute, which receives funding from the US and other Western governments, called RT’s guests “useful idiots,” to borrow from a famous quote from Communist leader Vladimir Lenin.
