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.

Washington Forbids Serbia from De-Mining Syria

This may be one of the cruelest and most cynical moves of Washington in its entire dark "regime change Syria" chapter. Serbian media sources are reporting, based on quotes from US Embassy Belgrade personnel, that the United States has sought and been given assurances by the Serbian government and military that Serbian de-mining experts would not be deploying to Syria to assist in removing the ubiquitous horrific mines and other explosive devices left behind by a retreating ISIS. 

As the rout of ISIS forces continues in Syria, the civilian population begins returning to their homes and their lives that had been disrupted by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other extremist groups. According to the United Nations, more than 600,000 Syrians have returned to areas liberated by the Syrian government with the assistance of Russia and Iranian forces.

Texas City Declares No Harvey Relief Unless Applicants Promise Not To Boycott Israel

The town of Dickinson, Texas is home to just over 20,000 people, an annual crawfish festival, and one of the most absurd requirements for disaster relief imaginable.

The town recently made non-support of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaign a condition for receiving hurricane aid. How can a small town like Dickinson put forth such a gratuitous disaster relief requirement? In this case, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree — Dickinson is simply following in the footsteps of the entire state of Texas.

Former FEC Chair Calls For Crackdown on “Disinformation” In Internet In Major Threat To Free Speech

In one of the most reckless and chilling attacks on free speech, the former chair of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and Berkeley lecturer Ann Ravel is pushing for a federal crackdown on “disinformation” on the Internet — a term that she conspicuously fails to concretely define. Ravel is pushing a proposal that she laid out in a a paper co-author with Abby K. Wood, an associate professor at the University of Southern California, and Irina Dykhne, a student at USC Gould School of Law. To combat “fake news,” Ravel and her co-authors would undermine the use of the Internet as a forum for free speech.  The regulation would include the targeting of people who share stories deemed fake or disinformation by government regulators. The irony is that such figures are decrying Russian interference with our system and responding by curtailing free speech — something Vladimir Putin would certainly applaud.

President Trump's "de-certification" of Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal. CIA torture sites in Afghanistan. PATRIOT Act. FISA Amendments. Saudi Arabia. Israel. Syria. Mass surveillance.

Lawrence Wilkerson: US ‘Marching Down the Road to War’ Against Iran

Lawrence Wilkerson has presented a dire prediction about a United States war on Iran. The former US Army colonel made this prediction during a Monday interview with host Joy Reid at MSNBC.

Wilkerson argues in the interview that President Donald Trump has taken actions that assure the failure of the Iran nuclear deal entered into by Iran, the US, and several other parties in 2015. Once the agreement fails, says Wilkerson, war follows.

Libya Update: ISIS Moving in?

ISIS and its head Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi have publicly declared that Libya will be its next home now that ISIS is being driven out Syria and Iraq.

It was reported recently that a former CIA Station Chief, one Daniel Hoffman, a distinguished career intelligence officer who served in the past in Russia, Iraq, and Pakistan, hypothesized ISIS’s regrouping strategy.

Hoffman specifically makes one particular point which many have been predicting for months: Essentially that ISIS needs a new base of operations following its loss of Raqaa and it has selected two potential sites in Libya.
