What's Behind the Big Facebook Purge?

RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America's InQuestion program to discuss the recent purge of more than 800 Facebook pages over accused "inauthentic behavior." What do many of these pages have in common, he asks? Well many are critical of the global US military empire, of the growing police state in the US, and of the failed US drug war. Is there a pattern? Facebook is working with the US government-funded Atlantic Council to decide which pages should be deleted. Might that explain some of it? Watch the panel discussion on the topic...

‘Fig leaf of fighting ISIS is gone’ – Ron Paul Institute

In attacking Syrian government-allied forces in eastern Syria earlier this week, the US government has lost the ability to claim that its continued presence in Syria is to fight ISIS. With ISIS nearly defeated and the Pentagon announcing that the US military would remain in Syria indefinitely, it is clear that the US has another agenda in Syria. By partnering with forces fighting to overthrow the government of Syria (the "Syrian Democratic Forces") and now by attacking Syrian government forces, the Trump Administration's new Syria goals look identical to the Obama Administration's old goals in Syria: Regime change. Trump looks to be upping the Obama ante by throwing in war with Iran (and possibly Russia). RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins the Ed Schultz Show on RT to discuss these latest developments...
