Foreign Policy Hawks Not Ready to Give up Turf

If President Trump is serious about a foreign policy that does not seek to destabilize and overthrow governments overseas, he is going to have to deal with the neocons who have polluted Washington with their bad ideas for decades. If he thinks they will just fade away, he's wrong. They are right now maneuvering and manipulating a way into his administration. Will he resist? Rejecting John Bolton would be a good start. I am on RT America discussing this issue as the last few weeks of President Obama's disastrous Syria policy wind down...

State Department to Hungary: 'Let NGOs Decide Terrorism Cases'

On September 16th, Syrian-born Ahmed Hamed crossed illegally into Hungary as he sought a new residence in the European Union. Hungary had by then already experienced several waves of migrants, many fleeing the chaos produced by US regime change policy in Syria, and the center-right government of Viktor Orban had made the decision to protect Hungarian borders. There were already numerous press reports that among the migrants were an unknown number of terrorists intent on attacking perhaps Hungary and the rest of Europe, so Hungarian caution was hardly an imprudent approach. In all, half a million people illegally entered Hungary earlier this year.

They Attack Us for Telling The Truth. Let's Fight Back

The mainstream media continues to lose audience, revenue, and most importantly credibility. Why is that? Much of it is due to the fact that thanks to the Internet, independent organizations can rise up to challenge the monopoly on ideas that they once enforced. Now, the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, etc. can be taken to task when they falsely report and distort the news. When they wear their biases so clearly on their sleeve that they resemble Pravda of old.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is one such organization. Founded by Ron Paul upon his retirement from Congress, the Institute has grown enormously in stature while retaining its very modest size and budget. We have grown so much in influence, in fact, that just last week when the Washington Post publicized the infamous "blacklist" of organizations it views as a threat to its prominence, the Ron Paul Institute was included among such major alternative outlets as the Drudge Report, Zero Hedge, Counterpunch, and others. That's pretty good company to be in!

Breaking: Trump, Putin Speak on Telephone; Vow to Improve Relations

After a rancorous presidential campaign in which the Hillary Clinton team actually accused President-elect Donald Trump of being a Russian agent, a new tone is being set by the next US president. Russian president Vladimir Putin spoke by telephone this afternoon with the incoming Republican and both men agreed to work toward "constructive cooperation" between the US and Russia. According to the Kremlin website, the two agreed to "return to pragmatic, mutually beneficial cooperation, which would address the interests of both countries as well as stability and safety the world over."

The End of Interventionism?

Looking over the global landscape, the areas most touched by US interventionist foreign policy are objectively in the worst, most desperate shape. The mainstream media will report that the current disaster in Syria came about because the people decided to stand up to a cruel dictator in the "Arab Spring" that swept through the greater Middle East in 2011, and that the dictator cracked down so hard it caused the violence to spin out of control. We know, of course, that is not the whole story. The US had been involved in fomenting unrest in Syria at least five years or more before violence broke out. A Wikileaks-released cable from 2006 shows how hard the US Embassy in Damascus was working to figure out a way to overthrow the government. Shortly after the partially manufactured protests devolved into violence, the CIA moved in and began arming (and importing) rebels to finish the deed. In five years the country has been destroyed, hundreds of thousands killed, millions left without homes.

Oops They Did it Again: US 'Misdirected' Drone Strike on Somalia Kills 22 Civilians, Soldiers

In what the US is calling a "misdirected" airstrike, some 22 Somali citizens and soldiers were killed by a US missile fired from a drone intended to take out al-Qaeda affiliated al-Shabab militia members. According to the BBC, the airstrike may have been a way for one region in Somalia to settle scores with another courtesy of US military might: "Officials in the semi-autonomous region of Galmudug accused neighboring Puntland of misleading the US into believing they had targeted extremists."
