Persian Gulf Tanker Attack: Iran Guilty? False Flag? Cui Bono?

Just as the prime minister of Japan was in an historic visit to Iran (the first since the 1979 revolution), a Japanese-owned tanker (and one other) was attacked in the Persian Gulf. US neocons are pointing the finger at Iran. Does it make sense to attack Japan in the midst of productive talks? Will the propaganda machine ramp up war talk? Watch today's Liberty Report...

'US Has a Military Junta' - Lew Rockwell

Commander of US Central Command, Gen. Joseph Votel, who oversees military operations in the Middle East, told the Senate Armed Services Committee this week that he "was not consulted" prior to President Donald Trump's December announcement that the US would withdraw troops from Syria. Is the Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces required to seek permission from his generals before moving troops in the theaters of combat?

Leaving Syria: Will Trump Hold Fast?

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) emerged from lunch with President Trump yesterday claiming that the president has agreed with him to scuttle an immediate withdrawal of all US troops from Syria. Is this another case of neocons playing fast and loose with facts? President Trump is yet to confirm that he's backed off of his plan and recent polling shows that a majority of Americans support a troop pullout. Will Trump hold up against the neocon and #Resistance barrage? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Trump Tweets War Warning, Pompeo Wants Regime Change: US Iran Attack Coming Soon?

President Trump sent out a red-hot Tweet last night threatening Iran with destruction if it does not stop threatening the US over US threats to change the Iranian regime. Round and round it goes, with the well-funded neocon think tanks pushing ever-harder for a US attack. Trump's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is extremely close to one of the most bellicose of these, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, which is staffed by many of the same people who gave us the disastrous 2003 war on Iraq. Is Trump being misled by his ill-chosen advisors...or are his war cries all his own? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

New Poll: What If Russophobes Held A Rally And No One Came?

A new Gallup poll may spell trouble for Democrats hoping to cash in on what they believe is an anti-Russia feeling among American voters. The percentage of people who believe that Russia is a great threat to the United States is so low that it is almost unmeasurable. People are most concerned about the bad quality of government and about immigration. The elites continue to obsess about things that the average voters could not care less about. And they think this time it will pay off? More in today's Liberty Report...

Legalized Groping: Court Grants TSA The Right To Assault You

A US appeals court has just ruled that we Americans have no recourse when an aggressive Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screener commits an assault on us. The the 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled that TSA officers were not "investigative or law enforcement officers," and therefore were protected from liability under the Federal Tort Claims Act. What does it say about us that we allow the government to commit crimes against our bodies for the "privilege" of traveling inside our country? Is there a better way?

Trump Hammers NATO. Good! Let's Get Out!

President Trump is making waves as he arrives in Europe for the NATO summit. Chiding Germany for benefitting from US protection against Russia while buying billions of dollars worth of Russian oil, he has captured the duplicity of European leaders. But the solution is not to browbeat them to spend more on their militaries. It's to shut down NATO once and for all. More in today's Liberty Report...

Brett Kavanaugh: Triumph Of The 'Radical Center'

Beltway Democrats and Republicans will mostly play their assigned role when it comes to supporting or opposing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as either a great threat or a great jurist. But Washington is home of the "radical center," where policy differences are made to appear far greater than they are. Looking at the world from a different lens -- pro-liberty or pro-authoritarian -- gives us a very different view of someone like Kavanaugh. Please join us for such a look in today's Liberty Report...
