‘I don’t think it will change a whole lot’ – Ron Paul on Bolton’s resignation
Fear is the language of government, and freedom is always the casualty. Politicians are notorious for saying the most preposterous things in order to coax Americans to submit to fear. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Bolton And Pompeo Beat Down Trump’s Afghan Peace Deal
Snatching war from the jaws of peace, the long-worked on peace deal negotiated between the US and Taliban leaders has apparently been tossed into the trash can and the US will return to its 18 year losing battle in Afghanistan. The deal’s demise was blamed on an apparent Taliban car bomb, but there may be much more to it than that. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Weekly Update – Bill Dudley’s Noble Lie
Is anyone surprised anymore that the Federal Reserve has its eyes on US politics? Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Is America Doomed? Any Options Left?
Is America incapable of going back to the “good old days” where we understood what it means to live in a constitutional republic and defended our liberties against all enemies, foreign and domestic? A new article from Michael Snyder cites plenty of polling data suggesting a grim future for freedom lovers. But there may be hope for the future after all… Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Will Another John Bolton Replace John Bolton?
Bolton may be gone, but Boltonism lives on. Those believing that the end of Bolton would signal a return to the foreign policy of candidate Donald Trump, however, may be disappointed. President Trump has appointed Charles Kupperman to temporarily fill in for John Bolton as National Security Advisor. Kupperman is one of Bolton’s closest friends and allies in Washington. Plus – What have we learned since 9/11? Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – ‘National Security Without Constant Conflict’ – Col. Douglas Macgregor
Decorated US combat veteran and author Col. Douglas Macgregor has some advice for President Trump if the president really means what he says about reducing US military presence across the globe. In this speech to the Ron Paul Institute’s 2019 Washington conference, Macgregor makes a powerful case for returning to the foreign policy of our Founding Fathers. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – With Bolton Out, Will Trump Open Door To Iran?
The last straw that broke Trump’s back with Bolton appears to be the latter’s vehement opposition to any kind of opening toward Iran. Suddenly a French proposal for a way out of the stand-off is being talked about by Trump and Pompeo. Will Trump find a way to ease tensions and open a new chapter with Iran, or will the whole thing fizzle in bluster? Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Trump Wants Bigger Debt Bubble: Will It Burst & End The Empire?
Once again, President Trump has ripped into the Federal Reserve. Unfortunately, the president isn’t criticizing the Fed for artificially suppressing interest rates, and creating the biggest debt bubble in the history of mankind. Instead, the president wants interest rates fixed down to zero (or even negative)! The president has embraced the idea that the disease itself is the cure. The colossal bubble that the American Empire lives on is running out of air. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – ‘Real Anti Interventionism’ – Daniel McAdams
Ron Paul Institute Director Daniel McAdams opens this year’s Peace and Prosperity Washington conference with some thoughts on what anti-interventionism really means and why non-intervention is so important to our national security and our moral and financial future. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – ‘Locked And Loaded’ – Will Trump Attack Iran?
After Saturday’s attacks on Saudi oil facilities, President Trump Tweeted that the US is “locked and loaded” and ready to do whatever Saudi Arabia deems appropriate to whoever the Saudis blame for the attack. Will Trump let the Saudis dictate when and where the United States goes to war? Who did it and why? Evidence? False flag? So many questions. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Weekly Update – Will Trump Take Neocon Bait and Attack Iran Over Saudi Strike?
Who attacked Saudi oil facilities and will Trump take us to war over it? Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Credibility Crisis: No One Believes Iran Attacked Saudi Arabia
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was sure of who was responsible for the attack on Saudi oil facilities shortly after the attack. Neocons followed suit, one by one blaming Iran and calling for the war they’ve been drooling over for years. But not only are Washington’s European partners skeptical of the claims – even Gulf allies are not outright blaming Iran. Lies grease the wheels of the war machine and with the latest attack the grease is flowing freely. What will Trump do? Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Trump Names New National Security Advisor – Bolton Without The Mustache?
President Trump has named Robert O’Brien, who served as foreign affairs advisor to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, as his replacement for fired National Security Advisor John Bolton. O’Brien is cut from the exact same neoconservative cloth as Bolton and represents, at most, change in style and physical appearance. With pressure mounting on Trump to attack Iran after unproven accusations that it was involved in an attack on Saudi oil facilities, the President’s national security team may find itself without allies in the effort. Will O’Brien put the brakes on Trump’s neocons…or will he hit the accelerator? Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – The Moral/Political Corrosion Of Negative Interest Rates, With Guest Jeff Deist
The approach of negative interest rates in the US will transport us into a truly bizarro world where up is down and spending is saving. But it’s not only an economic issue – there is a moral and political corrosion of our society that comes with negative interest rates. Mises Institute President Jeff Deist joins today’s Liberty Report. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – Negative Rates Can’t Save The Empire: It’s The Debt Stupid!
Central Planning is always destined to fail, and central planners (at everyone else’s expense) always do whatever they can to delay the inevitable. Negative interest rates (that is, getting paid to borrow money) would never occur in a free market monetary system. Such a ludicrous idea will only further exacerbate the end of central banking. Debt continues to skyrocket, and the interest payments will only get more unbearable. It’s time to audit and then End The Fed. Also: (Dr. Ron Paul) – ‘An Antiwar Conservative’ – Rep. John Duncan, Jr.
Can an antiwar conservative survive? US Rep. John Duncan, Jr. (Ret.) speaks at the Ron Paul Institute’s 2019 Washington Conference on taking difficult votes in the House against the Iraq war in 2002. Often when there were just a couple of “no” votes on a particularly bad bill, it would be Rep. Duncan along with Ron Paul voting together.
