Comey Lied? Trump Vindicated? Nobody's Safe From PATRIOT Act

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) dropped a bombshell yesterday when he revealed that members of the Trump campaign staff -- possibly including Trump himself -- had their communications intercepted by US intelligence. The surveillance was likely undertaken under expanded spying permission granted by section 702 of the post-9/11 FISA amendments. This provision enables the NSA to listen in to and keep information from phone calls of US citizens as long as the person on the other end is believed to be a non-US citizen overseas. The possibilities for abusing this expanded authority for political or other gain are endless and this may be what is behind the latest revelations. Politicians don't mind when we are spied on by the government, but they scream loudest when they are the victims. What's the solution? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Is North Korea An 'Imminent Threat'?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said recently that "everything is on the table" to confront North Korea unless the country gives up its nuclear weapons program, meaning presumably a US pre-emptive attack. But surely Kim Jong-Un is aware of what happened to Libya's Gaddafi when he listened to US demands and abandoned his nuclear weapons program -- he was invaded and murdered! So the US suffers from its own aggressive foreign policy, and its words are meaningless next to its actions. Is North Korea really an imminent threat to the United States? No, but if we continue to provoke rather than pull back and allow the two Koreas to solve their own problems what threat there is will increase...

House Russia Hearing: Revelations Or More Speculation?

To Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), Russian President Vladimir Putin is a tarantula spinning a web to trap the United States. Rigging the election in Trump's favor was just the start of his plan of conquest. In yesterday's House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russian influence in the Trump Administration and campaign, Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) read from the discredited opposition research dossier on Trump and noted that it might not be true...but then again it might. So more investigations are needed. In the end, nothing new was revealed, only speculation on the part of the Members and of witness, FBI Director James Comey. It was a classic Washington dog and pony show. We look at the distraction of the House hearing in today's Liberty Report...

Neocons Strike Back: Kagan Family On The Warpath (Again)

The neocons may have backed Hillary Clinton for the presidency, but that doesn't stop them from demanding the right to define our foreign policy in the Trump Administration. They get their money from the military-industrial complex and unlimited mainstream media exposure as the "experts" -- even though they are always wrong. The first family of neoconservatism, the Kagans, have recently regrouped after the election and have taken to the media to demand more war footing against Russia and a return to the policy of "regime change" in Syria. It appears they are making inroads in the Trump Administration. We discuss the neocon phoenix in today's Liberty Report...

Fed Hikes Rate - Stagflation Ahead?

What does Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen's decision to raise the interest rates .25 percent mean for the US economy? The budget? What about debt versus GDP growth? We take a look at the continuing disaster of creating money out of thin air in today's Liberty Report...

Trump/Saudi Collusion: Laying Plans For More War In The Middle East

President Trump's visit with the Saudi Crown Prince seemed to have gone very well yesterday. Despite being solidly behind Hillary in the campaign -- at least in their donations to the Clinton Foundation -- Saudi Arabia's millions spent on lobbying in Washington seem to keep paying dividends. The two seemed to agree on Syria no-fly zones, on the Saudi war on Yemen, the need for a hard line toward Iran, and more. All the items on the Saudi agenda. But what about America first? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

US Practices 'Taking Out' Kim Jong-Un -- What Will Be The Consequences?

The Trump Administration seems determined to provoke North Korea. Washington is sending over SEAL Team 6, Delta Forces, B-52s and B-1s, F-35s and more for a series of military exercises that will include preparing for "regime change" and for taking out Kim Jong-Un. The North Korean leader may be a paranoid, but wouldn't such a massive show of force on anyone's border produce some paranoia? Where is all of this headed? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...

New Rules Of Engagement: More Authority To The Generals

President Trump has reportedly expanded the authority of military officers to approve drone strikes across the many countries where the US military is engaged. This is an escalation in the pace of  US military actions overseas where the recent troop increases are an increase in scope. What is the endgame of President Trump's escalations? What will victory look like? Will this newest "surge" work where it has failed repeatedly in the past? Our view in today's Liberty Report...

Race For Raqqa: Major US Escalation In Syria

US boots are on the ground in Syria. Nearly 1,000 to be exact. Not counting CIA or contractors. President Trump has ordered several hundred US Marines onto Syrian soil (without permission) to participate in the attack on Raqqa, and he has sent several dozen Army Rangers to Manbij to try to prevent US-backed forces and Turkish-backed forces from killing each other instead of killing ISIS. The Russians have also sent troops to Manbij -- at the request of the US-backed YPG forces! Is Trump's Syria to just take all that was wrong with Obama's Syria and double it? We discuss in today's Liberty Report...
