War Drums Beating For Venezuela?

President Trump's recent threats of military action against Venezuela were amplified by his CIA director, Mike Pompeo, over the weekend. Pompeo would have us believe Venezuela is a serious threat to the United States because of his claim that the Russians, Iranians, Cubans, and Hezbollah are all in Venezuela. What about the US? Hasn't Washington been trying to overthrow the Venezuelan government since at least 1999, when Hugo Chavez was elected? More on the new "enemy of the week" in today's Liberty Report...

Only Morons Believe What The US Government Says About North Korea

Usually foreign analysts of the American political scene are either sycophantic or just annoying, but no one would dare say that about Aussie observer Caitlin Johnstone, whose punk rock style of cutting to the chase is as refreshing as it can be shocking (I am not a fan of the strong language, but I get it). Since President Trump's "fire and fury" explosion yesterday Americans have to an unsettling degree once again rallied 'round the (false) flag of war propaganda. Today Ms. Johnstone provided a much-needed slap in the face to the mind-numbed masses once again clamoring for US bombs on a country they could not find on a map if their lives depended on it.

Fire And Fury...And Profits! Korea Crisis Great For The War Industry

Yesterday's heated rhetoric set most normal people on edge. Would the US and North Korea launch a massive war where millions would surely be killed? One group feeling good about it all, however, are those who make billions in profit from scaring the American people -- and the rest of the world -- nearly to death. War industry profits are way up.

War Drums Beating: North Korea Tops The List

Last weekend's UN Security Council Resolution imposing sanctions on North Korea for testing missiles opens the door to a US pre-emptive strike on the country. Russia and China foolishly went along with the US and voted for more sanctions thinking that it would open the door to diplomacy. It won't. That's the last thing Washington's warhawks want and Russia and China should have learned as much from their complicity in Libya's destruction with their vote in favor of UNSC 1973 in 2011. War coming? Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

The Antiwar Conservatives, With Rep. John Duncan, Jr.

What is it like to vote against war in a conservative Congressional district? Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) found out that you can vote your conscience, explain it to your constituents, and continue to get elected. And educate conservatives about war in the process. Rep. Duncan is the last remaining Republican in the US House who voted against the 2003 Iraq war and he's still voting his conscience: he is one of only three Representatives to vote against the new North Korea/Iran/Russia sanctions bill. Today's Liberty Report visits with Rep. Duncan on what it means to be an antiwar conservative...

We're Losing Afghanistan. Can We Win?

President Trump summoned his generals and experts to the "situation room" at the White House late last month. He was furious that there was no plan to win Afghanistan and that after 16 years we were, in his words, "losing" in Afghanistan. What can be done? Some told him to send in many more troops. Others told him to pull out troops. The big mercenary companies want the war privatized to them. Perhaps the real problem is that no one knows what "winning" the war could possibly look like. No one in Washington has a clue.
