Ron Paul: The Battle is Between Liberty and Interventionism, Not Republicans and Democrats
In a Ron Paul Channel commentary on Wednesday, Ron Paul took issue with aspects of the August 7 New York Times article “Has the ‘Libertarian Moment’ Finally Arrived?” In particular, Paul argues that the article describes the growing influence of libertarianism wrongly when it pigeonholes libertarianism within the Republican Party. Instead, Paul explains, the crucial issue is Americans’ expanding understanding of libertarian ideas.

Mission Creep in Iraq, More Mayhem in Ukraine -- Daniel McAdams on Jay Taylor Show
Another round of attempts to solve Ukraine crisis without US participation will be launched next week, as more thousands of civilians killed in eastern Ukraine. There is no reporting on the massacre in east Ukraine, no State Department briefings demanding a stop to the violence.  Also what is the latest in Iraq, where mission creep is the order of the day? This and more as RPI's Daniel McAdams joins Jay Taylor for a discussion.

Eric Margolis: US Manipulating Afghanistan Election to Extend US Military Presence
Much American public attention is focused on the US military escalation in Iraq and, to some extent, the rivalry for leadership in that nation where Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has worn out his US government welcome. Among other offenses, Maliki failed to ensure Iraq agreed in 2011 to a status of forces agreement that would have enabled the continued presence of thousands of US troops by protecting them from liability for violations of Iraqi laws.

Who’s Zoomin’ Who in Novorossiya?
I share Paul Craig Roberts’ disgust for the behavior of Western media in their coverage of the war in Ukraine. Not only does Western reporting show these “newspeople” to be nothing more than a pack of idiots and whores, as Roberts suggests, but the heavy handed propaganda effort makes it damned near impossible for most of us to gain an informed idea of what is actually happening in Ukraine. What is happening? I will try to sort out the true situation and establish a framework for discussing the many facets of the “riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma” that is the war in eastern Ukraine.

Dennis Kucinich: US Fueled Christian Persecution in Iraq; More Intervention Is Not the Answer
Former US House of Representatives member and Democratic Party presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, speaking Wednesday with Bill Hemmer on Fox News, explained that “Christians, in effect, are receiving the blowback from the US war against Iraq,” and that further US intervention in that country is not the answer.

Selective Humanitarianism and the Week in War -- McAdams and Taylor Discuss
Is Russia sending a Trojan horse convoy into Ukraine? Is Putin hiding S-300s in with medicine and blankets to the displaced in eastern Ukraine? That is how it is reported in the western media. How close is the government in Kiev to economic suicide by cutting off gas to western and central Europe? Also on the menu: back to Iraq, libertarians for war, how some humanitarian disasters are more equal than others. Daniel McAdams is again with Jay Taylor to digest the week in war...

Did 'Non-Interventionists' Drink the 'Bomb Iraq' Kool-Aid? -- Daniel McAdams on Tom Woods Show
Why are so many of those who call themselves "non-interventionist" suddenly jumping on the "bomb Iraq" bandwagon with the latest dose of US government propaganda about the critical need to "save the Kurds"? Do people really believe the US government is telling the truth this time and, more importantly, that bombs will solve the problem?

Cold Winter: Will Ukraine Cut Off Russian Oil to Europe?
Will the Ukrainian government vote to freeze the trans-shipment of oil from Russia to the European Union? What will it mean to Poland, the Baltics, and much of central Europe to suddenly be cut off from their main supply natural gas with cold weather just a couple of months away? RPI Director Daniel McAdams discusses what happens when sanctions bite both ways...

Ex-CIA Giraldi: Intel Colleagues Don't Buy Chemical Attack Story


Phil Giraldi, a former career CIA operations officer, is interviewed on Scott Horton's excellent radio program today. Giraldi, a unique and valuable source of information and insights on how the US intelligence community works, told Horton that he and his current and retired CIA buddies are not buying the Obama administration's Syria chemical attack story.

Will someone in the US military or intelligence community risk total destruction to go public and debunk the Administration's lies on Syria?

Former President Jimmy Carter said recently that the US no longer has a functioning democracy.

US Rep Andy Harris has just tweeted that his constituents have opposed US military action against Syria by more than 500 to 1. Matt Drudge has a poll up at his popular news website the Drudge Report inviting his readers to indicate their suport for a Syria attack. Nearly 92% oppose action. Yet Congress -- the "people's voice" --  is sure to vote in favor of Obama's war plans.

Carter is right.
