Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), in a new interview with Reason Editor in Chief Nick Gillespie, says his “mission in life” is to prevent new United States Congress members “from becoming zombies when they get to DC.” Massie explains that “we get probably 12 to 20 guys every cycle that, you know, they run on what they believe and they believe what they run on, and, then, they get there and they sell out within about six months.”

Ron Paul: No Change in US Overall Policy No Matter Who Wins Presidential Race

As Americans voted in the Super Tuesday elections, former US House of Representatives member and three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul threw some cold water on hopes that the US presidential election will usher in significant change for the better. Paul, a guest of host Adam Boulton on Sky News, concluded a seven minutes analysis of various candidates in the presidential race, and even potential new contender former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, by stating, “No matter who wins in this country, believe me, there will be no change in overall policy, I am convinced.”

Ron Paul Ridicules Media’s Super Tuesday Focus on Fake KKK Scandal Instead of Important Issues

Ron Paul had little patience Tuesday morning for CNN host Carol Costello starting off an interview with Paul with questions regarding the supposed scandal of the day that presidential candidate Donald trump might be a fan of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

United States Secretary of Defense Ash Carter told Rachel Martin of National Public Radio, in a new interview released Sunday, that Russia behaved “completely wrongheaded” when it “came in and joined the [Syrian] civil war on the side of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad], further fueling the civil war.” Carter’s statement is an immediately classic example of the pot calling the kettle black. The US government, including the military Carter oversees, long ago committed to supporting another side of the Syrian civil war — the side whose objective is deposing Assad.

HOT: FBI Director Backtracks, Admits Apple iPhone Litigation Will be Precedent!

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey seems to have quickly reversed course to admit the obvious — that the February 16 magistrate judge’s order for Apple to help the US government breach an iPhone’s security, including encryption, is as much about establishing precedent for more court orders as it is about the government trying to obtain information connected to one phone related to the December 2 mass murder in San Bernardino, California.

On Sunday, Comey issued a statement that started with this declaration: “The San Bernardino litigation isn’t about trying to set a precedent or send any kind of message.” Then, on Thursday, Comey backtracked from this assurance by testifying before the US House Intelligence Committee that the order and appeals arising from the order “will be instructive for other courts.”
