‘This Flag Never Goes Down’: Amazon Reportedly Takes Down Historical Book On Confederate Flag Due To Confederate Flag On Cover

The extensive move to remove the Confederate Flag from public and some commercial settings has raised serious concerns over both free speech and academic freedom. While the flag has been used as a racist symbol, it is also a historical symbol. According to one author, that distinction appears to have been lost by Amazon, which reportedly took done the book by Michael Dreese, a civil war author with six books on the conflict. Two of those books concern both the Union and Confederate battle flags and their roles in the Civil War. However, “This Flag Never Goes Down” (a book on the Confederate flag) was taken down by Amazon from its listed works.

Obama to Bibi: Want Some (More) Money?

Ron Paul has always said that US foreign policy is incredibly simple: do what we say and we will send you money; disobey and we will bomb you. While there is (fortunately) little threat of the US dropping bombs on Israel over that country's hysterical opposition to the recently-agreed Iran deal, the carrot has just become even more gold plated. 

According to the New York Times, President Obama called Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week to promise him a massive increase in US military aid -- from the current $3 billion per year to $4.5 billion -- as bribe money to soothe Israeli fury over the possibility of peace breaking out between the US and Iran.

Torture Conspiracy: Doctors Collude With CIA

A recent report commissioned by the American Psychological Association showed that several of its members surreptitiously assisted the Central Intelligence Agency in designing new forms of torture. Even the APA's person in charge of ethics was caught trying to re-write the ethics rules to allow for such horrific behavior. Today the Ron Paul Liberty Report takes a look at what happens when doctors serve the state instead of their patients...

Time For a Cleansing

The NAACP is demanding that the giant carving at Stone Mountain, GA, of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson be sandblasted into oblivion. Off with the pagan carvings of slaveholders at Mr. Rushmore, too. 

In this same spirit, there are calls to tear down the Jefferson Memorial and change the name of Washington, DC. OK with me. Paganesque memorials are strewn about that city, and the pagans were slaveholders.

Ron Paul Takes on Neocon: 'We've Got a Schizophrenic Foreign Policy'

We're with the Iranians because we are both fighting ISIS but we're against the Iranians because they are on the side of Assad. That is why RPI Chairman Ron Paul described our foreign policy as "schizophrenic" in a Newsmax debate on the Iran deal. 

On the Iran talks, Dr. Paul reminded the viewers that Reagan believed it was important to talk to the Soviets, a regime that had killed far more people than has the Iranians, and to look for ways to reduce weapons proliferation. So why not talk to Iran?

Kiev's Contradictions

With the extremist "Right Sector" militias beginning to foment unrest in western Ukraine, will US-backed president Poroshenko move against his most dedicated storm troopers or will they move against him? Ukraine is breaking apart and no amount of EU or US goodwill will keep it together. Some Europeans are getting frustrated with Kiev's unwillingness to honor its commitments in the Minsk Agreement, while Washington seems only interested in providing more military training and possibly more weapons. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT's Crosstalk program (in the second half of the show due to technical difficulties) to discuss imploding Ukraine...
