Meet the new deal...same as the old deal...

The Green Bad Deal

Ron Paul Mar 25, 2019

undefined

The recently-proposed Green New Deal is proof that climate change is for progressive Democrats what terrorism is for neoconservative Republicans: a ready-made excuse to expand government and curtail liberty. This radical plan would authorize the US government to seize control of major sectors of the US economy, phase out gasoline-fueled cars, make buildings “energy efficient,” and even replace air travel with rail travel.

Iraq War Anniversary: Ron Paul’s Opposition Scored the Szasz Award for Civil Liberties

James Bovard Mar 23, 2019

This week marked the 16th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. Plenty of Bush apologists have been rewriting history on Twitter. But Ron Paul was one member of Congress who had nothing to apologize in the run-up to the war. He was outspoken throughout 2002 and beyond, exposing the folly of starting a major war in the Middle East and trouncing the shabby evidence the Bush administration offered.

His valiant fight against the war resulted in his receiving the Szasz Award for Outstanding Contributions to Civil Liberties in November 2002. He was the only politician to ever win the award named after the legendary psychiatrist Thomas Szasz, one of the great heroes of modern liberty. In the spiel below, I praised Ron Paul as someone who “speaks truth to power;” for the record, that was long before the same accolade was used to burnish our current CIA director. Here are the comments I made at the award ceremony in November 2002 in Washington...

Now We Will Find Out If Trump Is Really The President Or Merely A Figurehead

Paul Craig Roberts Mar 25, 2019

What can we conclude from the utter and total failure of the Russiagate “investigation” to find any evidence of “Russian collusion”?

We can conclude that it was a hoax cooked up by an utterly corrupt and immoral military/security complex determined to protect its $1,000 billion annual budget and the power that goes with it from the loss of its Russian enemy to normalized relations.

We can conclude that Hillary’s DNC was partner to this crime and that scum like Jarrold Nadler and Adam Schiff have destroyed the reputation and credibility of the Democratic Party.

We can conclude that the US media is devoid of all integrity, morality, and truthfulness and has forever discredited itself as a source of objective and accurate information.

Hoax of All Hoaxes: RPI's Daniel McAdams on the Death of Russiagate
There was collusion in the 2016 election, RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT International. It was collusion between Hillary Clinton, US intelligence agencies, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, and even "former" foreign intelligence agents like Christopher Steele. Is this actual collusion going to be punished now that the "Russia collusion" is shown to be the lie that it always has been?

UPDATE: Twitter Lets Julian Assange’s Mom Tweet Again
Yesterday, I wrote about Twitter restricting public access to the past Twitter posts of Christine Assange, the mother of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as well as preventing her from making new posts at her Twitter account. Today, it appears Twitter has removed those limitations.

Neocons Want Brazil in NATO to Undermine Venezuela – Daniel McAdams
Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins News.Views.Hughes to discuss Trump’s apparent 180 degree turn on NATO. While once he was outspoken in his criticism, President Trump now wants to expand the alliance by bringing Brazil into the fold. He argues that Trump has “neocons whispering in his ear” and that NATO is “an expensive meeting club” that has outlived its purpose...

Twitter Prevents Julian Assange’s Mom from Posting, Restricts Viewing of Her Past Posts
Christine Assange, the mother of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has used her Twitter page to criticize the United States government effort to prosecute and imprison her son for making available leaked information exposing abusive government actions, as well as her son’s harsh treatment — including a prohibition on his communication with the outside world — over the last year at Ecuador’s London embassy where he obtained sanctuary in 2012.

Ron Paul Airs Concerns about the Trump Presidency
Ron Paul, the libertarian communicator who ran three times for president, has been neither a “never-Trumper” nor a loyalist of President Donald Trump. Instead, Paul, through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump’s presidency, has judged Trump’s various comments and actions against Paul’s understanding of right and wrong.
