Unexceptional? Coronavirus and the End of American Empire

The underlying narrative - some call it a "myth" – of American foreign policy is the country’s exceptional position on the world stage. This is the bipartisan consensus. However, the reality is very different. The global pandemic has demonstrated the U.S. should focus on its own exceptional problems at home. CrossTalking with Daniel McAdams and George Szamuely...

Trump is Doing Middle East Peace Deal Like Real Estate Agent – Daniel McAdams

President Trump recently unveiled his new Middle East peace plan, calling it “the deal of the century.” The peace plan would create a small and disjointed Palestinian state in the West Bank while allowing Israel to annex nearly all the Jewish settlements in the territory. Soon after the announcement, clashes erupted between Palestinians and the Israeli army. Now Prime Minister Netanyahu is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to go over the plan. Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute, Daniel McAdams weighs in...

McAdams: 'Trump White House is a "Cult" under Bolton'

How is it that President Trump's national security advisor John Bolton seems to actually be running things and even over-riding his boss's foreign policy? As RPI Director Daniel McAdams tells Rick Sanchez of RT America, it's because he's frozen everyone else from the intelligence and national security community out and insists on controlling all information that gets to the president. It is similar to the role played by Bolton's ideological comrades in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war: Keep control of the president and make sure he sees nothing that contradicts what is your desired policy...

Venezuela is ‘most open US coup’, pundit tells RT as WSJ talks ‘getting Russia out of Caracas’

The US is fueling “the most open coup in history” in Venezuela, an American pundit told RT in response to a WSJ op-ed that beat the drum of interventionism by discussing how to get Russia out of Caracas and Maduro out of power.

A short but emotive editorial piece by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) said President Donald Trump should not let himself be “humiliated in our own hemisphere” by Vladimir Putin. The neocon paper was at their finest when they claimed Putin has built “a career of intervening abroad and seeing if the world lets him get away with it,” including in Georgia, Ukraine, and Syria.

Neocons Want Brazil in NATO to Undermine Venezuela – Daniel McAdams

Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins News.Views.Hughes to discuss Trump’s apparent 180 degree turn on NATO. While once he was outspoken in his criticism, President Trump now wants to expand the alliance by bringing Brazil into the fold. He argues that Trump has “neocons whispering in his ear” and that NATO is “an expensive meeting club” that has outlived its purpose...

US Has Foreign Policy of ‘World Domination’ – Daniel McAdams

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to make Russia’s withdrawal from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty official. Russia continues to insist that they have not been in breach of the treaty, despite repeated accusations from US leaders. Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss the development and other US foreign policy blunders around the world, which McAdams traces to the influence of National Security Advisor John Bolton.

‘Operational pause’: Turkish offensive in Syria’s Afrin forces US to halt anti-ISIS battle

Some US-aligned militias have switched their priorities to battle the Turkish-led offensive in Afrin instead of fighting ISIS terrorists, the Pentagon said, announcing a “pause” in ground operations in eastern Syria.

On January 20, Turkey, with the help of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA), launched Operation Olive Branch, a massive cross-border operation to clear Kurdish militias and remnants of jihadist fighters from Afrin, Syria. For over a month, the US-supported Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the backbone of which is formed by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), have split their efforts between battling the Turkish incursion and supporting the US agenda in northern Syria.

McAdams: US Empire ‘Too Fragile’ for a Free Press

The US Congress yesterday revoked press credentials for the Russia-backed RT America television station, claiming RT's new "foreign agent" status disqualified it from conducting journalism on Capitol Hill. RPI Director Daniel McAdams appeared on RT's The Ed Shultz Show to criticize the move on the grounds that the US government should not attempt to prevent Americans from viewing whatever media they choose. The move is really an attempt by Washington's neoconservatives to prevent any criticism of US interventionist foreign policy, he told RT...

McAdams: US envoy Nikki Haley is ‘Bull in a China Shop, Not a Diplomat’ on N Korea


Daniel McAdams, executive director at Ron Paul Institute, says that Haley is behaving more like a “bull in a china shop” than a diplomat.

RT:What do you make of Nikki Haley's remarks on North Korea, and how could it affect this standoff?

Daniel McAdams: As usual, Haley is not a diplomat, she is a bull in a china shop, so to speak. She is repeating all the neocon talking points at the UN. The idea of kicking North Korea out of the UN? The UN is a forum for diplomacy; it was designed to help avoid war. The idea of kicking them out of that forum just shows what her real agenda is. It is the same agenda that we heard from Lindsey Graham, as a matter of fact word for word: "if war happens, it’ll be North Korea’s fault." If war happens, it will be that the US has decided to attack North Korea. Frankly, I don’t think that is going to happen, but they are trying to ramp it up to the very closest point to war. That is the problem because it could lead to many mistakes.
