Who Attacked Four Oil Tankers in United Arab Emirates?

Earlier this week mysterious reports came in of a sabotage of four (empty) oil tankers in port in the United Arab Emirates. They were not destroyed, just damaged. With the US military on a hair trigger in the Middle East, any suggestion that Iran was behind it would lead a big step closer to war. Some unnamed US officials blamed Iran, while the Iranians blamed Israel. RPI Director Daniel McAdams participated in a debate on PressTV on this topic and on US/Iran relations in general.

Washington ‘Thrives & Survives on War & Conflict’ – Daniel McAdams

As the historic Kim/Putin meetings winds down in Vladivostok, what are the main takeaways? Is this a clever Putin end-run around Washington after the failed Trump/Kim summit in Hanoi? Does Kim really want a deal? What might a deal look like? RPI's Daniel McAdams joins RT America to point out that the Kim/Putin summit is far more about US/North Korea relations than Russia/North Korea relations...

‘Fort Trump’: Poland Ready for US Military Base

The Poles seem desperate to have a permanent US military base on their territory. They even promised to kick in two billion dollars and name it "Fort Trump" if the US agrees. The two countries are reportedly on the verge of making a deal. Does Warsaw really believe Russia is about to launch invasion of Europe? For what purpose? RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America to discuss "Fort Trump," the CIA lying to Trump on the Skripals, and the Mueller Report...

Debate: Omar & AOC Join Rand Paul & Republicans to Urge Syria Withdrawal

What's the main message in a bi-partisan, bicameral letter sent by ten Members and Senators to President Trump urging a full US withdrawal from Syria? In this RT America debate, RPI's Daniel McAdams suggests it's a way for Congress to encourage the president that he does have some support in Washington for his declared intention to get US troops out of Syria. Trump may be only hearing neocon opinion opposed to such a withdrawal. Is it a foolish, sham move, or a pretty good strategy? Watch the debate...

McAdams: Guaido Losing Popularity at Home, Despite US Support

President Trump foolishly listened to his neocon advisors who told him that regime change in Venezuela would be a "cake-walk." Just recognize the other guy as president and the whole thing will fall like a house of cards, they no doubt told him. And he believed. Now it is two months later and neither border incidents nor big cash incentives to the military, nor even apparent sabotage of Venezuela's power generation system has resulted in the promised overthrow of the Maduro government. And to make matters worse, the Russians have landed which enormously complicates repeated US claims that "everything including military action" is on the table. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America with his views on what to expect next...

Hoax of All Hoaxes: RPI's Daniel McAdams on the Death of Russiagate

There was collusion in the 2016 election, RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT International. It was collusion between Hillary Clinton, US intelligence agencies, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, and even "former" foreign intelligence agents like Christopher Steele. Is this actual collusion going to be punished now that the "Russia collusion" is shown to be the lie that it always has been?

'Bay of Pigs 2.0' US Invasion Plan for Venezuela Thwarted - Daniel McAdams

A remarkable recent article in Bloomberg reports on the real plan for last month's showdown over US "aid" for Venezuela blocked at the Colombian border. According to the report, the US plan was for some 200 heavily armed exiled Venezuelan military officers from the Colombian side of the border were to over-run the Venezuelan militia guarding their side of the border. Shockingly, the US government neglected to notify its ally Colombia of what would certainly result in a massive escalation of existing tensions between the two countries and it wasn't until the last minute when the Colombian government got wind of the plan and put the kibbosh on it.

Hard for US to ‘Sell Regime Change’ in Venezuela – Daniel McAdams

The Canada-founded "Lima Group" of Latin American countries dedicated to the overthrow of the Venezuelan government held an all important meeting in Colombia yesterday, coming on the heels of the weekend's unsuccessful push by US-appointed "interim president" Juan Guaido to lead a mass demonstration to recover US "humanitarian" aid just on the Colombia/Venezuela border. In what is likely a blow to US neocons desperate to gain traction with their plans for a US military-led regime change operation in Venezuela, the Lima Group explicitly rejected the use of military force to deal with the Venezuela "crisis." RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins RT America to offer his insights as to what is next for a US government dedicated to overthrowing the Venezuelan government...

McAdams: Senate Finds 'No Collusion' Between Trump and Russia - Now What?

RPI Director Daniel McAdams joined RT America's "Watching the Hawks" program today to discuss yesterday's bombshell report that the Senate Intelligence Committee has nearly completed its two year investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia and that it could find no evidence. As McAdams points out, this conclusion was hardly a surprise to many independent news and analysis sources but the damage has already been done: on the excuse of ferreting out "Russian influence" the media and social media companies have built a largely US government-funded Orwellian censorship network that isn't about to be unwound now that the basis for creating it has been proven false. Watch the interview below...

Venezuela: Politics of Regime Change ‘Dangerous & Inhumane’ - Daniel McAdams

RPI's Daniel McAdams joins RT America to discuss Marco Rubio's crocodile tears over suffering in Venezuela. After supporting the sanctions that contributed to Venezuela's economic decline, he's pointing to that decline as an excuse for regime change. Also - at what point do people demonstrating in the street gain the legitimacy to overthrow an election?
