US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, announced this week that the US would be quitting the UN Human Rights Council. Haley cited bias against Israel as a prime factor in the US decision. Is this a good move…or more politics?
The number of US airstrikes overseas has skyrocketed under President Trump, reaching an average of one every 12 minutes. And we’re not even officially at war! Who is being killed by these airstrikes? Who’s being separated from their parents (permanently) by these airstrikes? Why does
The mainstream media has identified another “crisis” over which we are supposed to drop everything and “do something”: people crossing our border illegally with children are being arrested and their children separated from them. But this is not a new phenomenon. The “crisis” is largely
The TSA is making a list of “troublesome passengers”? How about a list of “troublesome TSA Agents”?
A “mysterious” attack on Syrian government forces in southwest Syria earlier today has left as many as 52 Syrian (and Iraqi) troops dead. The Syrian media blames Washington, which has been warning Syria for several weeks to leave ISIS forces alone in the area. Who
As the Saudis attack the Yemeni port town of Hodeidah, the stated goal is to starve the residents into opposing the Houthi forces controlling the city. The US is actively participating in what is clearly a war crime against civilians. Why?
Over the last 100+ years, the U.S. has waged endless wars that have all been wrapped in extravagant lies. The lies were not only to get into the wars, but during the wars as well. How many times did the U.S. “turn the corner” in
You asked…Ron Paul answered! Please enjoy this edition of #AskRonPaul
Yesterday’s summit meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim was one for the history books. Will this open the door to a peace that has eluded the peninsula for 70 years? The signs are positive…and the neocons are furious!
Ignore detractors on the Left and Right – the Trump/Kim meeting is a good start.
America’s Crony Capitalist + Welfare State hodgepodge has failed. What will replace it is still up for grabs. There are a vocal few who want to breathe new life into the dead carcass known as Socialism. The idea of ‘something for nothing’ never loses its
Fireworks are expected at the annual G-7 summit this weekend. Europe is fuming over President Trump’s “go it alone” approach to global warming and trade and Trump is unlikely to back down. Will the G-7 turn into a G-6+1? We can only hope!
A new report issued by Amnesty International details the massive civilian death and suffering among civilians in Raqqa, Syria during the 2017 US attacks on the town. Was it really necessary to destroy the city to save it?
The US Supreme Court ruled more or less in favor of the Masterpiece Cake Shop’s owner refusing to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples on religious grounds. While conservatives may view this as a victory, in fact the ruling may end up hurting conservatives and
Reports are circulating that the US is considering sending its THAAD missile defense system to Germany to, they claim, guard against the Iranian threat. Are the Iranians — or the Russians — about to attack Berlin? Or is this another big win for the US
Violence at schools and the proliferation of bad ideas into the classroom have led more and more parents to look into homeschooling. Good idea!
Tariffs are taxes on Americans for the benefit of a tiny group of politically-connected corporations. Taxation can never lead to prosperity. Unfortunately, constant doses of patriotic propaganda convince Americans that they’re being robbed for their own good. Ron Paul discusses the destructiveness of tariffs on
What do you think authoritarians, who want everyone to obey their will, would prefer more? A nation of free thinking individuals, guided by their own beliefs, opinions and desires? Or a nation of people who can’t detect truth, and who don’t know what they’re ‘allowed’
The US European Commander wants more US troops in Europe “to deter Russian aggression.” Meanwhile, Poland is offering the US $2 billion to build a permanent US base on its territory. And the US is moving 2,500 new tanks and fighting vehicles into Europe. Does
The crash of the dollar is not a matter of if…but when! The modus operandi for the inner cabal of the global elite is and always has been to provide order out of chaos…sometimes the chaos happen organically and sometimes it has to be created.
Endless threats and demands have led the rest of the world to increasingly just ignore Washington.
On this Memorial Day, what if we were to contemplate some very important, life-saving questions…
The central planners at The Federal Reserve released their most recent minutes, and guess what they want? Higher prices! They want inflation to run hot. So while Americans clock into their jobs, (for the same amount of money) the central planners are manipulating the economy
President Trump has yielded again to the neocons, announcing this morning that next month’s historic summit with the North Korean leader is off. Trump was upset that the North Koreans got upset by the repeated threats of a “Libya model” for North Korea coming out
Dr. Ron Paul joins Alex Jones live via Skype to tell the world what he’d do in President Trump’s shoes. Can U.S. troops be removed from the Middle East to save money and end foreign entanglements?
After 17 years of war, innumerable new “strategies,” and trillions of dollars spent, the US war in Afghanistan is no closer to being “won” than ever. Will naming yet another war commander do the trick? Don’t hold your breath!
Can we just end the CIA already?
Secretary of State Michael Pompeo threatened Iran with annihilation in a speech yesterday at the neoconservative Heritage Foundation. His twelve demands of Iran read like the demands made of Serbia in 1914 — they are designed not to reduce tensions but to lead to war.
Do we have actual elections in the US, or does the CIA and deep state do the deciding? The news that longtime CIA operative Stefan Halper infiltrated the Trump campaign at the behest of the FBI should be the biggest news in the country. To
Every bubble goes through different phases before it finally bursts. They all end in a euphoric crack-up boom. In less than a year, the U.S. government has been clocking in debt at an average of $52,000 per SECOND, which more than what the average American
EU President Donald Tusk has openly broken with Washington over Trump’s pullout from the Iran deal, Gaza, and looming tariffs, Tweeting recently that “with friends like these who needs enemies?” Will this expanding US/EU rift be the good kind of “blowback” from Trump’s “capricious assertiveness”
President Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton was bombastic on the Sunday talk shows, demanding essentially a North Korea surrender rather than setting the stage for mutually beneficial talks. As we predicted just a week ago, Bolton is making his move to blow up Trump’s
As President Trump’s daughter and son-in-law celebrated the opening of a new US embassy in Jerusalem, some 60 protesting Palestinians were shot and killed in Gaza by Israeli snipers. The US embassy move was sold as a path to peace, but it looks like it
Guess who the “regime changers” want to rule Iran?
The drama in Washington continues around President Trump’s choice of CIA official Gina Haspel to be its new director. Haspel’s involvement in the CIA torture program and in covering up the evidence has led some Senators feeling unsure. Is Haspel qualified to head the CIA?
A free society needs very few laws, such as don’t use aggressive force against another person or their property; and don’t defraud someone or break a contract. Once government ventures out of these basic laws, tyranny starts to snowball. Over a couple hundred years, the
Angered by President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, German Chancellor Merkel has urged Europe to get its act together and stop relying on the US for defense protection. If Europe follows through, it can only be good news for the
Yesterday President Trump announced that he was pulling the US out of the Iran nuclear agreement. Washington’s European partners failed to follow suit, opting to remain in the deal. For now. Will Trump’s team be able to take the world back to pre-2015, when all
The new, bi-partisan authorization for the use of military force (AUMF) introduced by Senators Kaine and Corker is billed as evidence that Congress is finally taking its Constitutional war-making authority seriously. This could not be further from the truth. Congress is about to grant the
300% increase on NSA’s domestic spying on Americans.
The showdown is looming. President Trump will decide by the end of the week whether he will continue US participation in the JPCOA Iran nuclear deal or whether he will pull out, as he promised. Will he oppose virtually all of America’s closest allies and
America’s monetary system was hijacked in 1913. The U.S. Constitution wasn’t amended to bring about The Federal Reserve….it was just ignored. We use unconstitutional money every day. This “system” is the monetary system of Empire. It was constructed for that purpose. We’ll, anyone with even
