For eight years, we had to hear how Republicans were 'obstructing' President Obama's blueprint for turning America into the Garden of Eden. If only those heartless Republicans would stop standing in the way, President Obama would have been able to shower his voters with a deluge of other people's money. Needless to say, President Obama did plenty of damage despite the supposed 'obstruction' from the Republicans. Now President Trump has his error-filled blueprint to "Make America Great Again," but the Democrats have become the 'obstructionists'. The president has said so himself: "...the Democrats are obstructionists, no ideas or votes, only obstruction.” We've come full circle. More below:
It's never a good sign when government doesn't allow you to move your own body from once place to another. To whom does that body belong to? It doesn't matter if the place you are traveling to is populated by people who believe in sun gods or socialism. What if you happen to believe in sun gods and socialism? Shouldn't you be free to go where others share your interests? It may be wise, or unwise to travel to these places, but that decision should be yours alone. Should you fall into trouble, you assume the risk. That's what it means to be free. You're free to take your own risks. Surely if Americans were free, we wouldn't need permission to travel anywhere. The only permission that we'd need is from the property owner to whom we are traveling to. As long as we're not trespassing, we should be free to go wherever we please. More on these ideas below:
What a great guest! Former Marine intelligence officer and chief UN weapons inspector for Iraq, Scott Ritter, joins today's Liberty Report to explain why the "17 intelligence agencies agree on Russian election hacking" story is completely bogus and why the UN "investigation" of the April "chemical attack" in Syria is a joke. Scott's vast intelligence and WMD experience shines through in today's Liberty Report...
My Institute for Peace and Prosperity is returning to Washington, DC, to show the strength of our movement. I'll be there and I hope to see as many of you there as possible! Click the link for more information on getting your tickets and a great deal on a hotel room for the event!
According to intelligence reports, as many as 40,000 civilians may have been killed in Mosul. One way or the other, the weapons in the majority came from the US. There are no winners. There is nothing to go back to. Tune in to today's Liberty Report...
We all know why The Fed is against being audited. The last thing that the secretive counterfeiters want is for the American public to know what goes on in the shadows. President Trump initially showed support for auditing the Fed, but he backed off, as he has done with many other important things. Congressman Bill Posey seems to understand quite well that the money manipulators are hiding important information from public view. Watch the heroic Congressman grill Fed Chair Janet Yellen and catch her totally off guard when she's asked about being audited:
According to a new survey, more than three-quarters of Americans are worried about getting dragged into a major war overseas. Their biggest fear? North Korea. They should be worried about the neocons and interventionists! How does the media play up threats to push the propaganda? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:
Bad economic ideas always seem to sell well. For example, when President Trump says that he's going to protect "Made In America" products, it's virtually guaranteed to be received well by the American public. You'd have to be anti-American to be against it, right? But what if you took this idea (that has impoverished countless numbers of people throughout the ages) to the next step? What if the Governor of Florida declared that Floridians only buy their goods from within the state? To do otherwise would make that person an anti-Floridian. Why stop there? What if the Mayor of Miami declared that residents should only buy goods from within the city of Miami? To do otherwise would make that person a traitor to their city. Let's keep going....
You won't believe what US Attorney General Jeff Sessions told the National District Attorneys Association yesterday! Tune in to today's Liberty Report for more on his declaration of war on the Constitution...
Some encouraging developments on the Korean peninsula... South Korea's new president has proposed talks with the North. President Trump, not too long ago, stated that he'd be "honored" to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong-un. Diplomatic progress was made between the two sides prior to them being derailed by the George W. Bush administration. Will peace break out before the U.S. can do anything to derail it again?

Wars and Lies... That has been the winning combination for the American military empire. You can go all the way back to the beginning of the empire in 1898 when President McKinley told the Filipinos: "We come not as invaders or conquerors, but as friends, to protect the natives in their homes, in their employments, and in their personal religious rights." Sounds eerily familiar doesn't it? Hundreds of thousands of dead Filipinos hardly felt "liberated." The same pattern would be repeated over and over again....In Europe, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. In 2003, the American empire proclaimed itself as "liberators" in Iraq. The Iraqi death toll in the "liberation" has been calculated to be well over a million. Wars and lies...for 100+ years, and they just keep coming. More below:
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon had some harsh words for the DC Swamp this week. However, Dimon is merely focusing on the symptoms of our problems rather than the cause. Central Banks in general, and The Federal Reserve specifically, have buried us in mountains of credit that they've created out-of-thin-air. No one should ever have the legal power to counterfeit currency. Jamie Dimon has been a long-time participant in this "system," and has profited handsomely from it. We need to get to the root and stop wasting time on the symptoms. Ron Paul discusses on Fox Business:
There are plenty of investors and pundits criticizing the financial tinderbox that the central planners at The Federal Reserve have created. But where were these critics when the numbers were small? Why must people wait until havoc is knocking at the door in order to finally start speaking up? Were they capitalizing on the distortions created by The Fed? Were they riding the central banking gravy train while it lasted? Now it's too late to realize that the emperor is wearing no clothes. Hedge fund manager Mark Spitznagel shares his thoughts below:
This week, Rick Perry suggested an economic principle, specifically Say's Law on Markets. Was Perry's thinking sound? Did he deserve many of the criticisms that he received? Ron Paul weighs in on today's Myth-Busters:
Tucker Carlson may not be a pure non-interventionist, but he did the world a lot of good this week by bulldozing several neocons on his show. It's impossible to calculate the damage that neoconservatives (i.e., neocons) have done to both America and the world with their foreign policy ideas of Empire. The more that neocons are exposed for their never-ending disasters, the better chance we have at someday adopting a sane foreign policy of peace. Watch Tucker take down Ralph Peters and Max Boot below:
Protectionism and the erecting of tariffs are equivalent to "cutting off the nose to spite the face." When President Trump imposes tariffs on another country, it's another way of saying that he's raising taxes on Americans! After all, it's the American consumer that pays for the tariff, not the foreign country. The U.S. government has no taxing power over foreign nations. We Americans, on the other hand, are not as fortunate. We are the ones who must suffer with a further reduction in our standard of living. Ron Paul discusses with Kennedy below:
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson retuned from the Middle East empty-handed after attempting to diffuse the ongoing Saudi/Qatari crisis. How much did Trump's shared animosity toward Iran play into the Saudi "get tough" move against Qatar last month?
