State Department to Hungary: 'Let NGOs Decide Terrorism Cases'

On September 16th, Syrian-born Ahmed Hamed crossed illegally into Hungary as he sought a new residence in the European Union. Hungary had by then already experienced several waves of migrants, many fleeing the chaos produced by US regime change policy in Syria, and the center-right government of Viktor Orban had made the decision to protect Hungarian borders. There were already numerous press reports that among the migrants were an unknown number of terrorists intent on attacking perhaps Hungary and the rest of Europe, so Hungarian caution was hardly an imprudent approach. In all, half a million people illegally entered Hungary earlier this year.

Washington Post: Pentagon Suppresses its Own Study of $125 Billion in Waste

In a stunning and exquisitely timed article, the Washington Post tells us that the leadership of the Pentagon tried to suppress a study it requested of its own Defense Business Board.  The Board found $125 billion in waste in DOD's management of its own personnel over five years of spending.  Moreover, that same DOD leadership rejected the opportunity to reinvest this money in combat forces.

The War on Cash in South Korea

The South Korean government is preparing to move to a cashless society as the Bank of Korea plans to phase out all coinage by 2020. Apparently not all governments are proceeding as quickly as the Indian government. South Korea’s government hopes to get its citizenry to deposit their coinage onto electronic travel passes that are widely accepted throughout the country. The Bank of Korea will undoubtedly watch to see how smoothly the phaseout of coinage proceeds in order to set a deadline further in the future for the eventual phaseout of paper notes.

McCarthyism Is Breaking Out All Over

Seasoned journalist, White House official, and historian Pat Buchanan has responded to the Washington Post’s fake news about the independent journalists on the 200 List being Russian agents by reminding us that the US government has always been a major disseminator of fake news. 

No one knows who is behind the newly created PropOrNot website that came up with the list of 200 “Russian agents,” but it is as likely as not the State Department funded National Endowment for Democracy, which has been peddling propaganda as fake news since its inception. Indeed, it was created for the purpose of destabilizing the Soviet Union. Of course the CIA could be involved, or Israel, or George Soros, or some neoconservative group, or some new government funded organization as a tool of the propaganda war that the Obama regime has vowed to fight.

They Attack Us for Telling The Truth. Let's Fight Back

The mainstream media continues to lose audience, revenue, and most importantly credibility. Why is that? Much of it is due to the fact that thanks to the Internet, independent organizations can rise up to challenge the monopoly on ideas that they once enforced. Now, the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, etc. can be taken to task when they falsely report and distort the news. When they wear their biases so clearly on their sleeve that they resemble Pravda of old.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is one such organization. Founded by Ron Paul upon his retirement from Congress, the Institute has grown enormously in stature while retaining its very modest size and budget. We have grown so much in influence, in fact, that just last week when the Washington Post publicized the infamous "blacklist" of organizations it views as a threat to its prominence, the Ron Paul Institute was included among such major alternative outlets as the Drudge Report, Zero Hedge, Counterpunch, and others. That's pretty good company to be in!

Ron Paul Advises How Young People Can Advance Liberty

Libertarian communicator Ron Paul has some advice for young people. “What the young people have to do is to know and understand and study and feel comfortable with the alternative to what we have, and that is understanding what a free society is all about, what the Founders tried to give us, and what we have lost,” says Paul in a recent radio interview. Knowing history and economics, Paul continues, is important for young people.

Ron Paul: The War on Drugs is a War on Liberty, Choice, and Responsibility

Ron Paul lays out the case for legalizing all drugs and ending the war on drugs in a new interview released Tuesday. The chairman of the Ron Paul Institute and former Republican House of Representatives member from Texas tells interviewer Jacob Hornberger of the Future of Freedom Foundation that the war on drugs is really a “war on liberty.” Paul elaborates that the drug war is a war on people making their own choices and taking responsibility for their choices.
