Trump’s UN Speech: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

How did President Trump do in his UN General Assembly speech? He got some unexpected laughs and did a good deal of bragging, but when it came to foreign policy there were huge disconnects from reality. Everyone must respect each other’s sovereignty…but what about US troops in Syria? What about threats to overthrow Venezuela? Former CIA officer Phil Giraldi joins today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report to chew on Trump’s speech.

China’s ‘Digital Dictatorship’… and Ours

China’s “social credit” system is widely viewed as a kind of “digital dictatorship,” where not only does illegal or anti-social behavior result in lower scores and therefore less privileges, but political dissent also earns one lower “social credit” scores. While the anti-China crowd is busy pointing a finger at Beijing for such an authoritarian approach, a similar system is being put in place in the United States. How? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Philip Giraldi on the Grassley Memo Shocker – Did The UK Meddle In Our Elections?

The release of the “Grassley Memo” earlier this week should have made headlines, but it didn’t. In addition to confirming key details from the earlier Nunes Memo on FISA abuses, the Grassley memo contained even more details on the incredible manipulation of the 2016 US presidential election. Perhaps the media is ignoring the memo because the manipulation it demonstrates is not the manipulation they want to report. There is no evidence of Russian meddling in the memo.

Think the Brits would never do such a thing? Think again. Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi joins today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report to break down this new information.
