Ron Paul Makes the Case for Libertarian Optimism

American libertarians have plenty of reason to feel discouraged in this time of the United States government increasingly disrespecting liberty in America and pursuing intervention, including wars, overseas. While prominent libertarian communicator Ron Paul shares concerns about these developments, he also sees much reason for hope. In the final minutes of a new interview at Jay Taylor’s show Turning Hard Times Into Good Times, Paul makes the case for libertarians to be optimistic about the future.

Ron Paul: ‘Total Nonsense’ to Claim Syria President Bashar al-Assad is Gassing His Own People

“This whole idea that all of a sudden Assad’s gassing his own people, I think, is total nonsense,” declared Ron Paul in a new RT interview with host Ed Schultz. President Donald Trump has blamed Syria President Bashar al-Assad, along with Russia and Iran, for the alleged gas attack. However, Paul, a former United States House of Representatives member and presidential candidate, points out that “over and over again” the US has claimed the Syria or Russia government is guilty of this or that wrongdoing, from previous gas attacks in Syria to the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in London, but “nothing panned out.” It is just, Paul argues, one “fake news” story after another.

An Appeal to James Mattis

I beseech you, sir, to consider the possibility that the supposed chlorine gas attack at Douma, Syria may have been a carefully constructed propaganda fraud on the part of the rebels encircled in Douma.  Such a fraud would have as its purpose the elicitation of exactly the kind of response that we are seeing in the Western media.  The rebels have been defeated in East Gouta Their fighters and families are being evacuated to Turkish occupied Jarabulus by air-conditioned bus.   How would it benefit the Syrian government to make such an attack in this situation?

Trump: 'Just Kidding. We're Staying In Syria.'

Just a week after President Trump told an Ohio audience that US troops would be removed from Syria "very soon" and brought back home "where they belong," he has again changed his tune. After a neocon uprising in their various think tanks and journals and after a meeting with Defense Secretary Mattis, Trump did an about-face yesterday and grumbled that he'd keep them in for a while longer. Some say six months. Was Trump purposely misleading in Ohio, or is he really that pliable? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

A Pro-Life Libertarian Looks At Foreign Policy - With Guest Gary Heavin

Our imperialist foreign policy is doing us nothing but harm. So says today's Liberty Report guest Gary Heavin. And Heavin should know: he's an extraordinarily successful international businessman and one of the most impactful philanthropists of our time. When Haiti was devastated by a hurricane, he fired up his own jets and personally went down to help. But he is no fan of the neocon foreign policy of bombs away on any country that does not heed Washington's demands. And he is no fan of neocon meddling -- which results in such idiocies as the creation of ISIS as a proxy army to depose Syrian president Assad. Join today's very special episode with this incredibly clear-headed success story who has leveraged his good fortune to the betterment of others...

Trump Shifts On Syria, Russia - Neocons Go Nuts!

Over the past week, President Trump has twice emphatically stated that he intends to remove US troops from Syria and bring them home "where they belong." He also defied his advisors by congratulating Russian President Vladimir Putin on his election victory and suggested a summit meeting at the White House. The neocons have spent the last week furiously attacking these two moves, accusing him of undermining the policies of his advisors. Strangely, they don't seem to remember that it is the elected president who makes foreign policy, not his/her advisors. Will Trump actually defy the neocons and follow through with these two policy shifts...or will he flip-flop? Join us for today's Liberty Report...

Arms Sales Champion...USA!

The US is the world's leader in arms sales overseas and has been for a quarter of a century. President Trump is only following in the footsteps of his predecessors in pushing US weapons overseas. He claims it's about jobs. But what are the costs? What are the moral costs? Economic costs? Security costs? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

F-35 Boondoggle: More Military Spending Is Not More Security

President Trump's huge military spending increase is based on a false premise: that more money means more security. If anything, the debacle of the F-35 fighter should demonstrate that massive military spending with no real purpose not only does not deliver more security but in fact undermines our security. A bigger military budget does not make us safer. It makes defense contractors and the revolving-door Pentagon officials much richer while emboldening the kinds of interventionist foreign policy that actually makes us more hated and thus vulnerable to attack.
