Ron Paul on ‘Fort Trump’… In Poland?

When the Polish president came to town this week, he brought an offer of $2 billion toward the cost of putting in a permanent US military base on his soil. He even sweetened the deal by jokingly offering to name it “Fort Trump.” Joking aside, does establishing a permanent US military base so close to Russia’s border really do anything for US security? Or is it just a provocation? Is Russia really about to launch a land war to take over Europe? More in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Russian Plane Shot Down Near Syria – Who’s At Fault?

Last night Israeli F-16s attacked the area near the Syrian coastal city of Latakia. It appears in the course of the attack, Syrian air defense missiles may have hit a Russian surveillance aircraft, killing 15 Russian service members. The Israelis blame the Syrians for using old air defense systems, while in fact they have been the loudest voices arguing against any upgrade of Syrian defenses (it would make it harder to bomb the country). Meanwhile the Russo-Turk agreement on Idlib has defused the threat of an imminent Russian attack on the province and has thwarted US and western government plans to retaliate against the Syrian government. What’s going on? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

‘President Trump’s New Pax Americana’ – Col. Douglas Macgregor at Ron Paul Institute Media & War Conference

Do we have any reason at all to hope for a less militaristic foreign policy under President Trump? Col. Macgregor has seen war up close – he led the charge against the Iraqi Republican Guard in the 1991 Iraq war – and he’s had enough of the US empire. In his Media & War Conference speech he offers a way out of the neocon militarism that dominates Washington:

Pompeo Green-Lights More Saudi Slaughter in Yemen

On the very day we heard that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certified that the Saudi/UAE coalition was doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties in its war on Yemen, yet another Saudi airstrike hit a civilian bus and killed at least 15 people. Congressional efforts to address the unconstitutional US involvement in the Yemen war have been toothless. The hypocrisy of US foreign policy is laid bare in Washington’s Yemen policy.

Ron Paul asks Why Do the Palestinians Get Ripped Off?

This week the Trump Administration announced that the Palestinian Mission to the US would be closed. Earlier the Administration announced an end to US humanitarian assistance to Palestinian hospitals and an end to all US assistance. These moves do not save taxpayer money, however. They are meant to be punitive. The Palestinian leadership has opposed the US Embassy move to Jerusalem and its objections have been met with US punishment. Why does it seem they are getting ripped off? Is there a better way? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Ron Paul on What We Haven’t Learned Since 9/11

Seventeen years after 9/11, we’ve spend $5.6 trillion in a “war on terror” that has left al-Qaeda “stronger than ever” (as in a recent LA Times article). Most of that war effort seems to have been directed against the American people, who these days cannot fly on a plane without a TSA sexual assault, cannot be secure in their papers and persons due to government spying, and cannot speak freely due to government censorship. Have we just gone completely off the rails this past 17 years? Can we right our course? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
