Ron Paul: Technology for Liberty, Not War
RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, in a wide-ranging Alex Jones Show interview on Tuesday, commented on the potential of technology to counter “the abusive state.” Noting that government will always use technology for war and against the people, Paul says that in response “we have to try to get the smart people on our side to make sure the technology protects our liberty.”

The Empire on the Warpath -- McAdams and Taylor on Syria, Hong Kong, and More RPI Director Daniel McAdams is back with Jay Taylor to have a closer look into the topics the mainstream media refuses to cover. Mass graves in part of Ukraine occupied by US-backed regime? Radio silence in the west. US involvement in Hong Kong color revolution? Don't even go there! Listen to McAdams and Taylor for all the news the mainstream does not want you to hear...

Does Obama's 'Pivot to Asia' Include Regime Change For China?
President Barack Obama's "pivot to Asia" was supposed to mean that the US would pull back from its commitments in the Middle East and Europe and focus on improving economic and other ties with East Asia. Instead, the US government has helped foment a coup against an elected president in Ukraine, sparking a bloody civil war in the country; ignited a new cold war with Russia, including the imposition of broad economic sanctions; and launched yet another war in the Middle East, this time attacking both Iraqi and Syrian territory.

Hilarious German Satire of Anti-Russian Propaganda
While the German media has been at least as propagandistic as the US/UK media in its resurrection of wild, Cold War-style rhetoric over the Ukraine situation, cracks are beginning to appear. Satire, humor, and ridicule have always been among the best forms of social critique, and the below clip lampooning the information war over Ukraine is among the very best. When people laugh at their government's propaganda, truth begins to break through. It was true with the Soviet Union and it is true today in the west.

Whistleblowers Expose NSA-Partner Israel’s Corrupt Use of Surveillance Information
The Israel government, with whom the United States government has been sharing for years Americans’ and others’ unredacted private information and communications obtained through the US mass spying program, is being accused by tens of whistle-blowers of abusively using this sort of intelligence against Palestinians. The whistle-blowers, who are former and reserve members of intelligence-focused Unit 8200 of the Israel military, provide revelations illustrating some of the dangers mass spying poses in any country.

US War on Syria, Day Two: Civilian Casualties, New Scarier Group Hit, Israel Joins
In an attack on Syria that the Obama administration promises will be "ongoing," the first day of US bombs has reportedly left eight civilians dead including three children. Some 33 fighters were reportedly killed, producing a typical but troubling civilian-to-fighter kill ratio. US airstrikes struck inside the city of Raqqa, including residential buildings claimed to be occupied by ISIS. The group has already re-located its heavy weaponry out of the area, however.

Andrew Napolitano: US Using Gun Transfer Forms to Violate Free Speech and Privacy
RPI Advisory Board Member Andrew Napolitano, speaking with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Fox News regarding race and ethnicity questions people are required to answer to purchase a gun from a US government-licensed firearms dealer, explained that mandating answering questions on any form whatsoever violates speech and privacy rights. In short, Napolitano concludes, “It’s none of the government’s business who has guns.”

Prof. Flynt Leverett Dissects Obama’s 'Insane' Commitment to Never-Ending Middle East War
Penn State University Professor and RPI Academic Board Member Flynt Leverett, as a panel discussion guest this week on CrossTalk on RT, dissected United States President Barack Obama’s “insane” commitment to “never-ending war in the Middle East.” Leverett also addresses the US government’s arming and training of what he calls the “mythical” moderate Syria insurgents.

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson Derides US Support of “Moderate” Syria Insurgents
RPI Academic Board Member Lawrence Wilkerson, speaking Monday with Ed Schultz on MSNBC, derided United States government support for “moderate” Syria insurgents, noting that you cannot sort out who you are bombing and who you are arming. Wilkerson, a College of William and Marry professor and former US Army colonel, warns that the so-called moderate Syria insurgents are aligned with ISIS and “like the mujahideen in Afghanistan earlier, they’re going to be turning their weapons at some point against us.”

Mainstream Media Hypocrisy: 'Where Are the Antiwar Voices?'
On CNN yesterday, the question was asked “where are the anti-war voices on TV?” I’ve pondered that question myself. Don’t you remember, at the outset of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars, the abundance of speakers who opposed these wars? You know, one major network had the popular “Lew Rockwell/Ron Paul Report,” while another provided us with the “Justin Raimondo/Angela Keaton” panel discussion. Programs like these presented us with minds from across the political spectrum: Bob Higgs, Chris Hedges, Paul Craig Roberts, Amy Goodman, Tom Woods, Glenn Greenwald, John Pilger, Jim Bovard, Karen Kwiatkowski, Anthony Gregory, Daniel Ellsberg, Tom DiLorenzo, Jacob Hornberger, Laurence Vance, and . . . well, you’ll recall the popularity of such people – and others of equal stature I have inadvertently overlooked – in their prime-time appearances on television.

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.
