Venezuela is ‘most open US coup’, pundit tells RT as WSJ talks ‘getting Russia out of Caracas’

The US is fueling “the most open coup in history” in Venezuela, an American pundit told RT in response to a WSJ op-ed that beat the drum of interventionism by discussing how to get Russia out of Caracas and Maduro out of power.

A short but emotive editorial piece by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) said President Donald Trump should not let himself be “humiliated in our own hemisphere” by Vladimir Putin. The neocon paper was at their finest when they claimed Putin has built “a career of intervening abroad and seeing if the world lets him get away with it,” including in Georgia, Ukraine, and Syria.

McAdams: Guaido Losing Popularity at Home, Despite US Support

President Trump foolishly listened to his neocon advisors who told him that regime change in Venezuela would be a "cake-walk." Just recognize the other guy as president and the whole thing will fall like a house of cards, they no doubt told him. And he believed. Now it is two months later and neither border incidents nor big cash incentives to the military, nor even apparent sabotage of Venezuela's power generation system has resulted in the promised overthrow of the Maduro government. And to make matters worse, the Russians have landed which enormously complicates repeated US claims that "everything including military action" is on the table. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America with his views on what to expect next...

Hoax of All Hoaxes: RPI's Daniel McAdams on the Death of Russiagate

There was collusion in the 2016 election, RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT International. It was collusion between Hillary Clinton, US intelligence agencies, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, and even "former" foreign intelligence agents like Christopher Steele. Is this actual collusion going to be punished now that the "Russia collusion" is shown to be the lie that it always has been?

Neocons Want Brazil in NATO to Undermine Venezuela – Daniel McAdams

Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins News.Views.Hughes to discuss Trump’s apparent 180 degree turn on NATO. While once he was outspoken in his criticism, President Trump now wants to expand the alliance by bringing Brazil into the fold. He argues that Trump has “neocons whispering in his ear” and that NATO is “an expensive meeting club” that has outlived its purpose...

Twitter Prevents Julian Assange’s Mom from Posting, Restricts Viewing of Her Past Posts

Christine Assange, the mother of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has used her Twitter page to criticize the United States government effort to prosecute and imprison her son for making available leaked information exposing abusive government actions, as well as her son’s harsh treatment — including a prohibition on his communication with the outside world — over the last year at Ecuador’s London embassy where he obtained sanctuary in 2012. Now, Joe Lauria reports at Consortium News, public access to Christine Assange’s Twitter account has been restricted and she has been prevented from posting at her account.

Ron Paul Airs Concerns about the Trump Presidency

Ron Paul, the libertarian communicator who ran three times for president, has been neither a “never-Trumper” nor a loyalist of President Donald Trump. Instead, Paul, through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump’s presidency, has judged Trump’s various comments and actions against Paul’s understanding of right and wrong.

Lawrence Wilkerson: ‘National Security’ Spending Should Be Cut, Not Increased

President Donald Trump released this week his budget proposal that includes increasing by five percent United States military spending. However, Ron Paul Institute Academic Board Member and retired Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson argues in a Tuesday The Real News interview that the US government would do well to cut a trillion dollars over ten years — about 100 billion dollars a year — from its national security budget, a budget Wilkerson notes is about twice the 700-plus billion dollars Defense Department budget.
