Rand Paul Skewers The Military-Industrial Complex In Senate Committee Hearing

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is no happy camper when it comes to American foreign policy. Fresh off of a narrow defeat to partially stop President Trump’s Saudi weapons deal, Paul rallied against Syrian military intervention during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing this afternoon. “Are we going to limit the president’s power? Are we going to take back our power? I think a five-year sunset, is–you know, and I don’t mean to be mean, but–is essentially nothing. I mean, we’ve had millions of people die in five-year wars before, so I think it’s — it’s virtually meaningless,” Paul said. Paul believes that proposed Senate’s reforms would do very little to change the status quo. Instead, they are mere token measures that would allow the military-industrial complex to continue its hegemonic policies abroad while Americans are lulled back to sleep in the homeland. Paul is especially livid about the abuse of the Authorization of Use of Military Force signed by George W. Bush in 2001, which has been used as… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Channels His Father With Impassioned Plea On Behalf Of Saudi Terror Victims

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) tried his darnedest to partially halt Trump’s Saudi weapons deal. He was able to raise a great deal of bipartisan support, but his amendment failed by a closer-than-anticipated 47-53 vote on Tuesday. However, Paul did not go down without a fight. He gave quick but powerful remarks hearkening back to his epic Drone filibuster of 2013 as well as his father’s legendary speeches delivered from the House floor. “[Saudi Arabia] bombed and killed 125 civilians at a funeral. They wounded 500. This was no mistake, there was no error. This was them pointedly dropping the bombs on civilians,” Paul said on the Senate floor while pushing his doomed proposal against Trump’s Saudi weapons deal. Keep Reading

President Trump Enables CIA Swamp Rats By Engaging In Torture Report Cover-Up

President Donald Trump has been plagued with deep state treachery since he assumed his role in the Oval Office, but that isn’t stopping him from doing their dirty work anyway. Trump is working to bury a scandalous Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) torture report that goes into serious detail about the agency’s record of illegal and immoral behavior. Trump is moving at the behest of Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who stands at the helm of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), former intelligence committee chair, had previously ordered the report to be distributed to multiple agencies of the executive branch. She had hoped that the document would eventually be released to the public under the Freedom of Information Act, but Burr has other plans. “I have directed my staff to retrieve copies of the Congressional study that remain with the Executive Branch agencies and, as the Committee does with all classified and compartmented information, will enact the necessary measures to protect the sensitive sources and methods contained within… Keep Reading

North Korea Issues Demands, Orders Trump To Back Off As Precondition For Diplomacy

North Korea has issued an official response to President Donald Trump’s suggestion that he is open to talks “under certain circumstances.” The notoriously anti-American nation is open to meeting, but they have some preconditions of their own that the U.S. must follow to make it happen. “As everybody knows, the Americans have gestured [toward] dialogue,” North Korea’s Deputy UN Ambassador Kim In Ryong said on Friday as reported by Sky News. “But what is important is not words, but actions.” “The rolling back of the hostile policy towards DPRK is the prerequisite for solving all the problems in the Korean Peninsula,” Ryong said. “Therefore, the urgent issue to be settled on Korean Peninsula is to put a definite end to the US hostile policy towards DPRK, the root cause of all problems.” Keep Reading

Libertarian Party Vice Chair Releases Controversial Anti-Military Manifesto

Libertarian Party vice chair Arvin Vohra released a divisive manifesto last night deriding the institution of the military, promising a coordinated effort to counteract “the lies and bluster military recruiters use to dupe young men and women” in the months to come. “If you were tricked by military recruiters, help prevent the same thing from happening to others. Share your experiences, and speak out boldly,” Vohra said in a Facebook post that immediately generated a polarizing reaction with most of the feedback being resoundingly negative. “I don’t think someone is innately evil for being in the military, but I think that a lot of the military’s actions have been evil,” Keith Thompson said in response to Vohra’s sentiments. “Seems kind of collectivist to paint with that broad of a brush.” “As someone who thought you were quite intelligent and informed, your comments remind me why the LP will never be a relevant party,” Rumman Kay replied. “Disappointed in you, bud.” Keep Reading

A Tipsy, Candid Nigel Farage Admits His Bromance With Trump Has Hit The Skids

After Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to win the Presidency last year, Nigel Farage was all smiles. The infamous shot of him partying at Trump Tower next to the incoming President gave hope to anti-globalists everywhere that the men would be working together intimately in the years to come, but their bromance has quickly fallen to pieces. Officially retired from his post as UKIP leader, Farage has embarked upon a British tour. While drinking and letting loose in Hunstanton, Norfolk, Farage admitted that he was hoping for some sort of role as a official British liaison to the U.S. government, but nothing of the sort has developed. In fact, he is feeling shut out from any role of influence with the Trump administration. Foreign policy is the source of the chasm that has developed between the two populist leaders. A source close to the White House National Security Council told the Daily Star that “Trump was far from pleased when Farage criticised his decision to send missiles into Syria.” Keep Reading

US Will Give Saudi Arabia Nuclear Technology In Deal Pushed By Top Trump Advisors

Several Trump administration officials are pushing a diplomatic deal that would give Saudi Arabia nuclear technology for civilian purposes, according to Mike Cernovich, the independent journalist who broke the stories about Susan Rice spying on Trump officials and H.R. McMaster wanting a massive ground war in Syria. National Security Advisors H.R. McMaster and Dina Powell, along with Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn, are all pressuring President Donald Trump to accept the deal in preparation for a ground war in Syria, according to some sources close to Cernovich. Trump, however, is reluctant to go through with the deal. Keep Reading

Trump Rebukes Italian Prime Minister, Calls For No U.S. Intervention In Libya

Although Trump has already bombed Syria and is posturing aggressively on Iran and North Korea, recent comments indicate that he will be taking a less militarist stance on Libya. He announced at a press conference that he sees no further role for the United States regarding the African nation. “I do not see a (US) role in Libya,” Trump said during a joint press conference yesterday with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. “I think the United States has right now enough roles,” Trump said. This came immediately after Gentiloni said that the United States’ role in Libya is “critical.” Trump snapped back to make it clear that the tragic circumstances in Libya are no longer the concern of his administration or the American people. President Obama’s intervention into Libya, backed by the North American Treaty Organization (NATO), turned the country into a haven for radical Islam after disposing secular dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Recent reports of slave markets being prevalent in the area have horrified the world, prompting… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon: McMaster Wants a ‘New Iraq War’ In Syria

The Trump administration is weighing different options regarding Syria at the present moment after a chemical weapons attack widely attributed to the Assad regime. The biggest chasm has developed between White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster over whether or not to start a ground war in the region. According to a Bloomberg View report, McMaster is advocating a full-scale invasion of Syria, with 50,000 ground troops. Conservative journalist Mike Cernovich had previously warned that McMaster, in league with the disgraced former CIA Director David Petraeus, was pushing for sending as many as 150,000 conventional forces to Syria. Bannon believes that this would create a “new Iraq war” and has derided McMaster to his colleagues for his proposal. Keep Reading

“Beach House” Bernie Shills For The War Party; Calls For Syrian Intervention

Even though he failed to win the Democratic Presidential nomination last year, Bernie Sanders won a large national platform to spread his message. His message is typically seen as populist and anti-establishment, but on the issue of Syria, Sanders is lining up next to Hillary Clinton and the military industrial complex in calling for regime change. “Let’s all recognize that, in a world full of disgusting dictators, Bashar Assad maybe ranks at the top… We’ve got to work with countries around the world for a political solution to get rid of this guy and to finally bring peace and stability to this country,” Sanders said in a Meet the Press interview this weekend.

Neocon Elliott Abrams To Trump: Remove Steve Bannon From White House!

The neoconservatives are once again emboldened after Trump’s military strike on Syria last week. Former George W. Bush advisor Elliott Abrams is offering some unsolicited advice for President Trump: Dump Steve Bannon as chief political strategist. “He’s not a good influence on the president,” Abrams said to a reporter during a Politico interview. He apparently smiled ear-to-ear while discussing the prospects of Bannon’s removal. Furthermore, he is a firm proponent of Jared Kushner’s increased influence in the White House. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law and the head of the new White House Office of American Innovation. Keep Reading

Putin Shows Heroic Leadership As Trump Is Cucked By Neocons In Syria

Donald Trump faced the first true test of his Presidency this past week, and failed abysmally. After a chemical attack in Syria that was attributed without any real evidence to President Bashir al-Assad, Trump threw his relatively non-interventionist stance in the trash immediately to appease the neocons and other Washington D.C. swamp rats, launching airstrikes against the Syrian government. While Trump faltered, a truly masculine leader with big hands reacted like a professional. Vladimir Putin refused to budge to the neocon war machine and throw Assad under the bus at their behest. He refused to feed into the globalist propaganda narratives pushing the world toward conflict. He didn’t care that the western media was making him or Assad out to be bogeymen. Putin urged for restraint while Trump was rushing to war. He stood strong under the pressure while Trump whimpered. Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu that “it was unacceptable to make groundless accusations against anyone without conducting a detailed and unbiased investigation.” Keep Reading

Despite Missile Strikes, Trump Administration Claims Syrian Policy Is Unchanged

In the wake of President Trump’s missile strikes in Syria, many observers are alarmed over the possibility of the United States being involved in another full-blown war. However, the Trump Administration is indicating that this strike is more of an isolated incident than a substantiative change of policy. “I would not in any way attempt to extrapolate that to a change in our policy or posture relative to our military activities in Syria today. There has been no change in that status,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. “I think it does demonstrate that President Trump is willing to act when governments and actors cross the line and cross the line on violating commitments they’ve made and cross the line in the most heinous of ways.” Keep Reading

President Trump Considering Possibility Of War Against Syria After Chemical Attack

Recent reports of a chemical attack that was allegedly perpetrated by Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad onto his own people has President Trump reconsidering his stance of neutrality in the Syrian civil war. He is even considering direct military action, a CNN report claims. “It crossed a lot of lines for me,” Trump said in a press conference regarding the recent chemical attack in Syria. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal – people were shocked to hear what gas it was. That crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line, many, many lines.” Keep Reading

Sen. McCain Fumes As Syrian President Receives Vote Of Confidence From Trump State Department

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has indicated that regime change is no longer the official policy regarding Syria, where embattled President Bashar Al-Assad is fighting a civil war against ISIS and other Islamist factions. This is a serious departure in policy from the Obama/Hillary/Neocon doctrine of nation-building and extreme militarism, and Sen. John McCain is far from pleased. Although the Trump Administration is boosting drone strikes in the Middle East and actually has boots on the ground in Syria, that is not enough to satisfy McCain’s longing for war. In addition to the Trump regime furthering America’s overseas presence, McCain demands aggressive belligerence toward the Syrian regime as well. Keep Reading

Back To Iraq: President Trump Deploys Troops For “Temporary” Presence In Mosul

The Trump Administration is escalating its presence in Northern Iraq to include over 300 additional U.S. troops from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division in an attempt to beat back the presence of ISIS in the city. The move is slated to be temporary, but no timeline for withdrawal has been given. A Mar. 27 Military Times report on the escalation stated, “The paratroopers comprise two infantry companies and a route-clearance platoon from the division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team, according to a U.S. defense official, who spoke to Military Times on the condition of anonymity.” They were scheduled to depart for their mission yesterday.

Hillary, Neocon Hawk Or Sensible Leader?

One of the myths we hear all the time is that Clinton would make a tough and intelligent wartime President. It is true that within the Obama White House Clinton often joined with Panetta and others to advance a more hawkish position. Nevertheless, in almost every instance, she would show herself to be a hawk in the context of a crisis situation. In essence, when the shit hit the fan, she would counsel firing back hard, rather than waiting to see what happens. It can be argued here that Obama’s “wait and see” approach to crisis management actually stopped the terrorists from achieving the larger objective of inciting an overreaction by the “Great Satan.” This may or may not be true, but the relevant point is that Clinton’s hawkishness almost always can be characterized as reactive and crisis specific.   The better question is what approach she would take strategically; or even, for that matter, if she has a determined geopolitical strategy that says where she wants USA policy… Keep Reading

A Time For War: How Foreign Policy Can Make Or Break The Liberty Movement

The Middle East is in flames again, and for once, Liberty people seem unsure what to think about it.  For years our only rallying cry was “no more nation-building – bring the troops home!” And for a while, that was enough.  Our foreign policy ideals were so diametrically opposed to those in play for the last few administrations, we didn’t need to nail down all the details of our ideology.  Mere assertion sufficed. But the situation in Iraq has brought the Liberty Movement to a crossroads. On one side, Ron Paul’s steady non-interventionism is what first drew many people to the Movement, and the case could even be made that these foreign-policy-first libertarians form the core of the Liberty Movement.  These folks steadfastly believe that the United States should bring all military forces home and leave the world to its own devices, relying on free trade and free association to govern international affairs.  But this group has fallen strangely silent in the wake of all the images coming out… Keep Reading

“By The Waters Of Babylon We Sat And Wept”

“By the Waters of Babylon” by Don McLean Iraq,  once known as the “cradle of civilization” may soon come to be known as the  “graveyard of civilization.”  The first laws, writing, astronomy and math were all gifts that Mesopotamia gave to advance civilization.  The most famous Mesopotamian from Ur of the Chaldeans, was Abraham,  the  patriarch of the three great religions; Christianity, Judaism and Islam.  Today the land  is being torn apart by religion and foreign intervention.  After the creation of Israel, most of the once large and thriving ancient Jewish community in Iraq fled.  My father came from Iraq to America in 1952 because he realized that Iraq was not a nation for a Christian man to raise a family.  He was an indigenous Chaldean who spoke Aramaic, the language of Christ, and wanted to be free to practice his Catholic faith. The number of  Christians who have emigrated from Iraq is over 1 million and increasing since the most recent societal breakdown. Soon the indigenous Christians could disappear… Keep Reading
