Mueller Report Decimates ‘Russiagate’ Hoax – What’s Next?

Four Years of the War on Yemen

Originally appeared on The American Conservative.

This week marks the fourth year since the beginning of the Saudi coalition’s war on Yemen. In the last four years, the coalition has destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure, devastated its economy, driven millions to the edge of starvation, and killed tens of thousands of Yemenis in its bombing campaign.

Trump Wants Brazil in NATO – To Help Oust Maduro?

Less than a month after Brazil made it clear that it wants no part in a military invasion of neighboring Venezuela, its president, Jair Bolsonaro, is in Washington this week to be feted by Trump and his neocon advisors. First stop was an unprecedented visit to the CIA for a “briefing” on Venezuela. Then it was off to a visit with Trump, where the US president promised at the least a path to NATO membership for the South American country. Are the neocons turning Bolsonaro in favor of an attack on Venezuela? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Trump’s Record Spy Budget – What Do We Really Get For $86 Billion?

The Trump Administration has requested a huge increase in the US spy budget, including a whopping $23 billion for the “black” budget. The reasons given are the increasing threats from Russia and China. Does all this spy spending really protect us…or is it just welfare for the Beltway bandits and scaremongers?
