'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...

US plan for Latin America: ‘Venezuela is just the beginning’ – Daniel McAdams

The real "Troika of Tyranny" is not Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua, as the neocons claim, but rather Pompeo, Bolton, and Abrams, RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT America today. As to what we should do to help the Venezuelan people in economic trouble, McAdams says the best thing to do would be to stop trying to overthrow their government, lift the sanctions, and begin engaging with the country. Punishing civilians for the perceived misdeeds of the government has never worked and will not work...

More US Sanctions on Russia: RPI's Daniel McAdams on Why Trump's Being Played

Is President Trump even in any kind of control of his own Administration? His Treasury Department has slapped new sanctions on Russia over a list of grievances that sound like they could have come from a Hillary or an Obama Administration. Poll after poll shows that the majority of Americans and the vast majority of Republicans want the President to get on with improving relations with Russia, yet his Administration is moving in the opposite direction. RPI Director Daniel McAdams is interviewed on how the Trump Administration's foreign policy seems to be out of the hands of Trump...

Facebook Deletes 32 Pages; Blames Russians

Out of more than 2.2 billion Facebook users, the company yesterday dramatically announced that it had discovered 32 accounts it considered "inauthentic." The mainstream media - and Facebook's US government-funded partner the Atlantic Council -- screamed that this must be a Russian influence campaign designed to sow divisions in our society, though Facebook admitted that it has not even investigated the suspicious pages. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed on this latest chapter of the "Russians are behind everything" saga that grips the chattering classes...
