Daniel McAdams on What You Need to Know About Syria

Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams appeared on Mises Weekends with Mises Institute President Jeff Deist earlier today to try and make sense of what's going on in Syria, what the policymaking might be in Washington on the topic, and whether President Trump will really risk starting a nuclear war to avenge the alleged civilian deaths in a Syria chemical attack

‘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...

Real Cost of 'Defense' - RPI's Daniel McAdams on 'Mises Weekends'

Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams sat down with his old Ron Paul Congressional Office colleague, Mises Institute President Jeff Deist, to discuss the real costs of our massive yearly military spending bill. How does the new nuclear weapons "modernization" program fit in? How big is the US military budget -- how does it compare to the budgets of Washington's rivals? What should the role of the US be in the world?

FBI-Gate? #ReleaseTheMemo

Though dead-enders can't let go, the fact is "Russia-gate" is on the wane for lack of any kind of evidence. But what has emerged to take its place looks more like "FBI-gate," with senior officials seemingly plotting to prevent Donald Trump from taking office and then plotting to depose him once in the White House. RPI's Daniel McAdams joins RT's Crosstalk to point out that the FBI has always been a political organization and that the United States would be far better without such a national police force and without agents who do things that would land the rest of us in jail. And wasn't the Mueller investigation supposed to be all about Russia? Why are we only hearing about "obstruction of justice" and other unrelated avenues of investigation?

RPI's Daniel McAdams: ‘Nothing New’ in New National Defense Strategy

Defense Secretary James Mattis unveiled the new US National Defense Strategy which has shifted the focus away from terrorism as the main threat to looking at Russia and China as the main threat to the US. It is a move back to the neocon "Wolfowitz Doctrine" of the 1990s, RPI Director Daniel McAdams tells RT, which stated that the US will use everything in its power to prevent a rival from rising to challenge it. Our hyper-interventionist foreign policy consistently creates outcomes opposite of our stated goals and this new strategy only continues this process...

Pre-emptive War Is A Pandora's Box

"We have to fight them over there, so we won't have to fight them here." Was it George W. Bush? Nope. The statement goes all the way back to President Truman, who warned that if we didn't fight the Korean war we'd have to fight commies in Wichita. The whole idea of pre-emptive war is nothing more than false propaganda. Today's Liberty Report takes on the myths that lead us to war...

Why is US Media Ignoring Prof. Postol's Study on Syria Chemical Weapons Attack?

The Trump Administration announced today that it was placing 271 Syrian scientists under sanctions for what it claimed was their work on producing chemical weapons for the Assad government. As with the chemical attack in Idlib earlier this month, for which the US blamed Assad, there was no proof provided. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joined RT today to discuss the current state of US policy toward Syria and the double standards when it comes to reporting and investigating civilian deaths in Syria and Iraq...
