Obama Hands Corrupt Ukraine Another Billion US Dollars

One of the downsides of the US "regime change" business is that when you break it, you often have to buy it. It's all fun and games when you wander through the streets of Kiev with a bag of cookies encouraging the people to overthrow their government, or when you appear on stage before a riotous mob and alongside avowed national-socialists violently overthrowing a democratically-elected government.

What gets messy is when you get your way, the old government is overthrown, your "guys" seize power, and it turns out corruption and economic mismanagement are worse than before the US-backed "liberation."

Washington to Moscow: Stop Targeting al-Qaeda in Syria - You'll Kill Our Moderates!

The Associated Press is reporting this afternoon that the Obama Administration has requested that the Russians cease and desist from bombing al-Qaeda's Nusra Front in Syria because Washington's "moderate" rebels are fighting together with al-Qaeda in Syria and any attack on al-Qaeda could kill Washington's "moderates." 

The Obama Administration thus continues with the fiction that there are completely separate, vetted, moderate rebels who are dedicated to creating an inclusive, multi-cultural and multi-confessional, secular and democratic Syria as soon as both ISIS and the Assad government are defeated.

Ron Paul’s Advice at the Libertarian National Convention: Don’t Be Wishy-Washy

Ron Paul, whose forty-plus years in the political arena include a run for president as the Libertarian Party nominee in 1988, received at the party’s national convention last weekend a Hall of Liberty award for his achievement in advancing the libertarian movement. Paul, who was unable to attend the convention, did appear in the convention hall via a video address in which Paul both expressed his deep appreciation for the award and offered some advice to the people assembled. Paul’s advice includes that they strive to be principled instead of wishy-washy.

Al-Qaeda Linked Leader Visits US - To Lobby US Government!

Most Americans would think that after 9/11 and the four trillion dollar, 15 year "war on terror" that followed, the US government might actually wish to prevent individuals from visiting the country who are affiliated with al-Qaeda. Sadly, they would be wrong.

The McClatchy News Service reports that Labib al Nahhas, an official in the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamist fighting group Ahrar al Sham, was granted a visa to enter the US for a brief visit. 

In a recent State Department press briefing, one journalist questioned Department Spokesman Mark Toner about the purported visit. "Were US officials aware of this visit?" asked the journalist.

Breaking: US Soldier in Syria - 'Kill 'em All!'

After continued Pentagon denials that US Special Forces in Syria equals "boots on the ground" in Syria, new video has just emerged of a US soldier standing next to what looks like an armored personnel carrier with Kurdish militia "YPG" spray-painted on it. It appears he is asked some kind of question and he turns to the camera with a menacing smirk and says: "Let me tell you something. I"m from the United States of America and I say kill 'em all!"

Caught on Film: US Special Forces Fighting on Ground in Syria

Today Agence France-Presse published shock photos of US Special Forces troops engaged in combat inside Syria with the US-backed, mostly-Kurdish "Syrian Democratic Forces" as they moved toward the ISIS "capital" of Raqqa. The Pentagon has insisted that US troops in Syria -- numbering upwards of 300 -- play only an “advise and assist” role to the US-backed group, made up mostly of Kurdish YPG forces, but the AFP photos demonstrate clearly that the US forces are engaged in the fight. 

The Washington Post reports that the US Special Forces were, "clustered around what appears to be an advanced Mk.47 40mm automatic grenade launcher. The system, built by General Dynamics, is primarily used by Special Operations units and has not been widely sold outside the United States."

Ron Paul Praises Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders…With Reservations

Ron Paul Institute Chairman Ron Paul told host Larry King on the Friday episode of Ora TV's Politicking that in November he would vote for neither Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump nor Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Nevertheless, Paul did have something favorable to say about each candidate.

Commenting in the interview first regarding Sanders, Paul said that Sanders “stands on principle” and that, “even though we disagreed on a lot of issues,” Paul and Sanders “would work together” sometimes when they were both in the United States Congress. Paul provides, in the interview, an example of where Paul and Sanders had common ground that led them to work together...
