Attend a Great Nonintervention Conference and See Beautiful, Historically Rich Charleston Too!

Have you secured your ticket to the April 29 “Non-Intervention: America’s Original Foreign Policy” conference in Charleston, South Carolina? You can watch a new video conversation of two of the people who will speak at the event — Jacob G. Hornberger, who is president of the Future of Freedom Foundation (FFF), and Richard M. Ebeling, who is a professor at The Citadel military college — for a preview of some of the discussion that will take place at the conference. Hornberger and Ebeling also provide reasons — from historical sites to beautiful beaches — why it may be wise to expand a trip to Charleston for the conference into a great vacation.

Defense Secretary Mattis Makes Mad Dog Arguments Against Congress Barring Yemen War Support

Interviewed Monday at The Real News, College of William & Mary Professor and retired United States Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson strongly criticized arguments Secretary of Defense James Mattis presented, in a letter to congressional leaders last week, in opposition to there being a vote on S.J.Res. 54 or other congressional measures to end or restrain the US government’s support for the Saudi Arabia–led war on Yemen. 

Wilkerson was asked by host Sharmini Peries about what she termed “three main arguments” in Mattis’ letter: that Saudi Arabia is acting in self-defense, that absent US support Saudi Arabia would kill more civilians, and that the US must support an ally such as Saudi Arabia. “All three of them are nonsense, and I am really ashamed of Jim Mattis for making them,” Wilkerson replied.

Ron Paul: It Looks Like the US will be in Iraq until the US is Bankrupt

Questioned, in a Wednesday RT interview, about North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s recent comment that there is no intention to stay in Iraq “longer than necessary,” libertarian communicator Ron Paul quipped that “their definition of ‘necessary’ is a lot different than a lot of other peoples’.” In contrast to the foreign intervention proponents, including those in the United States government, Paul notes that the Iraq parliament has voted that the US military should leave Iraq — something Paul wrote about in an editorial earlier this week.

The Federal Reserve Wins in the Texas Democratic Primary

When Texas Democratic Party primary voters filled out their ballots on Tuesday, they encountered two propositions, on which they were invited to vote “for” or “against,” that mentioned the Federal Reserve. One proposition said the party should promote a “national jobs program” for infrastructure projects financed through the Federal Reserve. The other proposition proclaimed that Texans should “have the right to refinance student loan debt with the Federal Reserve at a 0% interest rate.” The voters approved both propositions, as they did the other ten propositions on the ballot, with over 90 percent support.
