The Defense Department has sent Senate Majority Leader McConnell a letter informing him that even if Congress passes legislation limiting US military action in Yemen, the Pentagon will ignore it. Will Congress finally wake up on Afghanistan and Yemen and return to its Constitutional obligations? Time to smack down an out-of-control Executive Branch? On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
Best Buy’s Geek Squad has been discovered acting as undercover FBI informants, snooping on their customers’ computers and reporting anything that looks amiss to the FBI…for cash payments! And Google is teaming up with the Pentagon to help it better analyze drone footage for targeting and other purposes. While once it seemed the big tech firms would provide us protection against the ever-prying eyes of the national security state, it seems now they have become arms of the national security state. We look at this troubling phenomenon in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
While North and South Korea are making incredible progress toward de-escalation of tensions – with a successful high-level meeting recently in the North – the neocons are still calling on the US to launch a “preventative” strike on Pyongyang. They do not even seem deterred by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s suggestion that ending his nuclear program is on the table. Will President Trump green light direct negotiations or will the neocons win out (again)? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
Why is President Trump’s foreign policy so incomprehensible? He says he does not want to let the enemies know what he’s doing, but often he does not do what he says. He said we should get out of Syria just a few days ago, but in today’s press reporting he is apparently demanding a new plan to attack Syria. What gives? Watch today’s Liberty Report:
Over the weekend, President Trump told an audience at a fundraiser that the US attack on Iraq was the “worst decision ever.” As we approach 15 years since the launch of “shock and awe,” the truth of Trump’s words are evermore obvious. As president, however, he has the power to correct that terrible decision and not just for Iraq but for every country “liberated” by previous presidents. He can end the US military presence in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, etc. Will he do it? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
Every special interest has a pitch on how to get government benefits at the expense of everyone else. This week we get the steel industry pitch. Americans are supposedly going to “Beat China” by paying a tax to the U.S. government. With enough propaganda, Americans will go along with it. But Ron Paul will tell the truth instead.
