Another “blockbuster” report on Trump’s “ties” to Russia has fizzled into nothingness, as the New York Times’ piece over the weekend on an FBI counterintelligence investigation opened against the president was riddled with holes and absurdities. What came through loud and clear, however, was that Obama appointees and loyalists in the FBI and elsewhere in the deep state were determined to do everything in their power to overthrow a legally elected US president. Our take in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report.
While touring the Middle East, including election-free Saudi Arabia, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called for the Venezuelan opposition and armed forces to overthrow the current government under its president Nicolas Maduro. According to Pompeo, a coup is necessary to “restore democracy” after elections failed to produce the desired US outcome. On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
With the killing of opposition journalist Khashoggi safely out of the headlines and with the House refusing to hold a vote on US involvement in the Yemen war, the Trump Administration is back to its Plan A: Sell more weapons to the Saudis as the Saudis annihilate Yemen. The latest is a $200 million missile “defense” deal. Will the Democrat-controlled House reverse former Speaker Ryan and hold a vote on US participation in the Yemen war? On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
President Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton (along with the Secretary of State and other neocons) are openly defying the president’s stated policy of a rapid withdrawal of US troops from Syria. The president does not seem too bothered by this open insubordination. Will he cave in to the neocons? Does it really matter? On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, stunned Washington over the weekend by stating the obvious: Julian Assange and Wikileaks are simply publishers, like the Washington Post and New York Times. If Assange is prosecuted by the US for publishing information, what’s to stop prosecution of the rest of the US media? We agree with Giuliani for a change! Let’s hope Trump agrees as well!

Over the last few days, President Trump has shocked just about everyone. First a complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, and then a 50% reduction of troops from America’s 17 year old war in Afghanistan. This is what Americans have been voting for for decades, and naturally, the establishment is having a fit. Ron Paul discusses on today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report!
