As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump correctly called the economy a "big, fat, ugly bubble." The bubble is now much bigger, but President Trump has stamped his name on it. Interest rates are now rising. Is the end of the everything bubble near?
The Ron Paul presidential campaigns were, more than anything, grassroots efforts. From money bombs to Ron Paul blimps and limos, the campaign was the opposite of a top-down effort. Joining today's Liberty Report is one of the prime movers of the grassroots Ron Paul and pro-liberty movement, entrepreneur and activist Joby Weeks.
The Polish president was in town this week and he brought with him a proposal for a permanent US military base on his country's territory. He said Poland would contribute two billion dollars toward the project and even joked that he'd call it "Fort Trump." Is this a good idea?
Yesterday's Israeli attack on Syria has resulted in the shoot-down of a Russian surveillance plane, perhaps inadvertently by the Syrians. The attack came on the same day as a Russian/Turk agreement on deconfliction in Idlib. Are these related? Will matters escalate?
The media? Gerald Celente has a few things to say about the media! Don't miss this lively and humorous take on what's wrong with the mainstream media in the United States from the Ron Paul Institute's September Washington DC 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 and he's had enough of the US empire. In his Media & War speech he offers a way out of the neocon militarism that dominates Washington.
Once Socialism is adopted, it's only a matter of time until the mass migrations begin in search for greater freedom. No one is building a do-it-yourself boat to sail to one of the few Socialist countries that remain. People are however, always trying to escape, with Venezuela being the latest example. Ron Paul discusses on The Liberty Report.
On the day Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certified that the Saudi-UAE coalition was doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties in its war on Yemen, the Saudis hit another civilian bus, killing at least 15. Last month the Saudis attacked another civilian bus killing at least 40 children. The US government is a partner with the Saudis and is complicit in the slaughter of civilians. Congress complains, but does nothing...
This week's announcement by the Trump Administration that the PLO office in Washington would be closed as a punishment to the Palestinians is another in a recent series of Washington moves against the Palestinians - while claiming the mantle of "honest broker." Is the US helping facilitate Middle East peace...or something else?
Seventeen years after the attacks on New York and the Pentagon, the US has spent an estimated $5.6 trillion fighting a "war on terror." Yet the perpetrators of 9/11 - al-Qaeda - are, according to a recent LA Times Article, stronger than ever. At home we have endless spying, an out-of-control TSA, and other attacks on our liberty. It is clear we are doing something very wrong. Can it be fixed?
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that anonymous US Administration sources have secret intelligence showing that Syrian President Assad has given the order to use chlorine gas in Idlib province. Does this sound a little like the "anonymous sources" and "secret intelligence" used to lie us into the 2003 Iraq war?
Iranian monetary policies, coupled with crippling U.S. sanctions, have caused a massive fall in the Iranian rial. Some Iranians are using gold to pay their rent, along with other financial transactions. Real money like gold always makes its return, but must we constantly wait for financial crisis in order to do the right things?
How can we defeat the warmongers and interventionists? Rep. Paul's Congressional policy team reunites (with the addition of Liberty Report co-host Chris Rossini) to talk about how to reach out not just across the aisle but beyond the aisle.
The New York Times has published an explosive - but anonymous - op-ed purportedly written by a "senior official" in the Trump Administration outlining how his fellow officials are working night and day to thwart the US President's agenda. Is this a coup?
Washington is warning the Syrian government against a final assault on rebel-held Idlib province, but President Trump's own envoy has admitted that the province is controlled by al-Qaeda. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley meanwhile claims a gas attack is coming and she knows just who's behind it. Will the battle for Idlib end with a whisper, like Aleppo, or something more dangerous...?
Those who sent people to war were those who fought with them in the front lines. No longer. Statistician, bestselling author, legendary investor Nassim Nicholas Taleb tells us how neocons (and many others) have no skin in the game.
