What the Istanbul Attack Reveals

Imagine my surprise. The government solution to prevent attacks at airports has done nothing but moved the point at airports where crowds gather---that is, it just movies the location of the optimum soft target for terrorists.

Also, of note, but not mentioned in this video about the incident, the airport terrorists in the Istanbul attack entered and attacked through the exit gates where passengers leave the airport. This area was less protected versus the arrival area.

As horrific as these attacks are, in the grand scheme of things the casualties from the attacks are not significant in number. More people die in the United States each year from falling out of bed.

Ron Paul Predicts Voters Will Be Drawn to Trump and Clinton, Not Libertarian Candidate

As a guest Tuesday on the CNBC show Futures Now, Ron Paul predicted that American voters, “as we get closer to the election,” will be motivated by “who they hate the most” to make a choice between the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees instead of choosing the Libertarian Party alternative. Paul, who notes that he has been through this process himself as the 1988 Libertarian nominee, also says that this year’s Libertarian presidential ticket is presenting itself with “mostly Republican viewpoints” instead a message that would really appeal to people contemplating voting third party.

Chaos In Congress: Are Guns The Issue?

House Democrats held an unprecedented "sit-in" on the House Floor last night, protesting not being able to vote on new gun restriction measures. House Republicans nearly came to blows with their counterparts, as many of them blame recent gun violence on "radical Islam." Legislation to prohibit anyone on the "terror watch list" from purchasing a firearm was already defeated (for now) in the Senate this week, but House Democrats want their own vote on the measure. Both sides miss the real point, however. Neither will consider the real cause of the violence and therefore both sides seek harmful solutions. More on these dramatic events in today's Liberty Report...

Israeli Intel Chief: We Don’t Want ISIS Defeated in Syria

In a speech at the Herzliya Conference, Israel’s military intelligence chief, Major General Herzi Halevy, took Israel’s long-standing position that it “prefers ISIS” over the Syrian government to a whole ‘nother level, declaring openly that Israel does not want to see ISIS defeated in the war.

Quoted in the Hebrew-language NRG site, linked to Maariv, Maj. Gen. Halevy expressed concern about the recent offensives against ISIS territory, saying that in the last three months the Islamist group was facing the “most difficult” situation since its inception and declaration of a caliphate.

Clinton Foundation Hack: Amazing Revelations

The recent hack into the computers of the Clinton Foundation has revealed tens of millions of foreign government dollars sent in "donations" while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Could the millions in Saudi donations have influenced Hillary's Middle East foreign policy? Will we ever know? Is this all an acceptable way to conduct foreign policy? More today in the Liberty Report...
