McAdams: Turkey’s Erdogan Chooses Russia Over US

RPI Director Daniel McAdams appeared on RT America's News, Views, Hughes program today to discuss the big story that NATO partner Turkey has thumbed its nose at US criticism and decided to purchase the Russian S-400 missile defense system. The US will be bound to apply economic sanctions to Turkey for the move under a 2017 law punishing any country doing business with Russia's military sector due to Russian activity in Ukraine and claims that Russia interfered in US elections. Also Turkey will be forbidden from purchasing the F-35 stealth fighter that it had been a partner producing. As McAdams points out, this is really a momentous shift if the US follows through and chases Turkey out of the NATO orbit. Watch the interview here...

Bolton’s absence helped Trump in Korea – Daniel McAdams

President Trump's shipping John Bolton off to Outer Mongolia while he paid a surprise visit to Kim Jong-Un and took historic steps into North Korean territory was a very smart move and a good way to re-start stalled bi-lateral and trilateral talks. Bureaucrats and Beltwayites were furious that they were made irrelevant by the president's personal diplomacy and the Democratic presidential candidates were only interested in making political points. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed on RT America on the real meaning of the meeting...

Was the Ron Paul Campaign Secretly Backed by the Russians?

Did those evil Russians put Ron Paul 2008 on the map? This is just one of the weird allegations made by high-ranking Libertarian Party officials and their allies. Ron Paul Institute Director Daniel McAdams joins the Tom Woods Show to discuss the recent re-Tweet by Libertarian Party chairman Nicholas Sarwark of a bizarre, unsigned article claiming a huge Ron Paul/Donald Trump/Vladimir Putin conspiracy. Also, Sarwark suggested that Ron Paul is a "supporter" of the governments of Venezuela, China, and Russia (because he opposes regime change). Finally, old allegations about the British Helsinki Group are revisited and explained. An airing out of allegations in this Woods/McAdams podcast...

Neocons Stovepiping Intelligence Again: McAdams on RT America

RPI Director Daniel McAdams joined The News With Rick Sanchez to discuss how the neocons are again stovepiping intelligence and serving it up to a mainstream media eager for war.

McAdams: Bolton ‘Giving Dumb Advice’ on Iran & N. Korea


Is President Trump starting to lose faith in his National Security Advisor, John Bolton? We can only hope, RPI's Daniel McAdams tells RT America's Scottie Hughes. From North Korea to Venezuela to Iran, it seems the President is going one way and his advisors are going the other...

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...
