Fire And Fury… and Profits! Korea Crisis Great for the War Industry

Yesterday’s heated rhetoric set most normal people on edge. Would the US and North Korea launch a massive war where millions would surely be killed? One group feeling good about it all, however, are those who make billions in profit from scaring the American people — and the rest of the world — nearly to death. War industry profits are way up. Selling fear…in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Ron Paul Says War Drums Beating: North Korea Tops the List

Last weekend’s UN Security Council Resolution imposing sanctions on North Korea for testing missiles opens the door to a US pre-emptive strike on the country. Russia and China foolishly went along with the US and voted for more sanctions thinking that it would open the door to diplomacy. It won’t. That’s the last thing Washington’s warhawks want and Russia and China should have learned as much from their complicity in Libya’s destruction with their vote in favor of UNSC 1973 in 2011. War coming? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

The Antiwar Conservatives: Ron Paul Interviews Rep. John Duncan, Jr.

What is it like to vote against war in a conservative Congressional district? Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) found out that you can vote your conscience, explain it to your constituents, and continue to get elected. And educate conservatives about war in the process. Rep. Duncan is the last remaining Republican in the US House who voted against the 2003 Iraq war and he’s still voting his conscience: he is one of only three Representatives to vote against the new North Korea/Iran/Russia sanctions bill. Today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report visits with Rep. Duncan on what it means to be an antiwar conservative:

Ron Paul: We’re Losing Afghanistan. Can We Win?

President Trump summoned his generals and experts to the “situation room” at the White House late last month. He was furious that there was no plan to win Afghanistan and that after 16 years we were, in his words, “losing” in Afghanistan. What can be done? Some told him to send in many more troops. Others told him to pull out troops. The big mercenary companies want the war privatized to them. Perhaps the real problem is that no one knows what “winning” the war could possibly look like. No one in Washington has a clue.

Trump Signs Sanctions Bill – Another Deep State Victory

With the new Russia sanctions bill passed and signed into law, President Trump’s room to improve relations with Russia is nearly non-existent. He will not be able to remove the sanctions without permission from Congress, and that is unlikely to come. This is exactly what the deep state desires. Official enemies, to keep the money flowing to the military-industrial complex, which is their lifeblood. Of course they suck all of our blood and they spill blood across the globe…

Trump’s US National Security Strategy – New Wine In Old Bottles?

In a recent interview, Sebastian Gorka, an aide to President Trump, denounced “stale thinking” on national security policy over the past 30 years. He said that the White House was working on a new National Security Strategy for the United States that would reject the old “extremes” of neoconservative interventionism on one hand and libertarian “isolationism” on the other. It is quite interesting that he chose to single out non-interventionism (which is not “isolationism”) for criticism as if it had been attempted and failed over the past three decades. Why the strawman? Because this “new” strategy is being drawn up by neocons who dominate Trump’s foreign policy and national security staff. They know their brand is damaged so they are trying to pretend that they are coming out with a whole new batch of wine. But check the bottles…
