Watch this great throwback of The Man him self for getting it right 2 decades ago.
What do the foreign policy "experts" do when their policies aren't working? They demand MOAR! of the same, of course. So it is that two failed years of Western sanctions are met with demands to do more of what is not working. Also today, Rep. Massie warns us about the upcoming stopgap budget deal. Finally...let's check in on how that war on the Houthis is going...
French President Emmanuel Macron surprised European NATO members earlier this week by stating that it may be necessary to send NATO troops into Ukraine to fight Russia on a "bipartisan" basis. His European counterparts for the most part recoiled at the suggestion, with speculation about WWIII. Also today: Surprising poll on Gaza.
The Liberty Report will be back soon. Please enjoy this classic interview with Lew Rockwell. Be sure to visit LewRockwell.com!
The New York Times came out with a bombshell article on Sunday detailing the past ten years of CIA active warfare from within Ukraine against Russia. From building 12 CIA bases within the country, to instructing on sabotage inside Russia to providing targeting intelligence BEFORE the 2022 Russian military operation in Ukraine. And...much of the operation was kept secret from then-President Trump!
In the latest illegal immigration boondoggle, the mayor of New York City adopted a program to give each illegal immigrant family a debit card worth $10,000. Refillable. And he awarded a "minority-owned" company a no-bid contract worth $53 million to carry out the policy...Also today: Neocons bust Ukraine "myths."
As Wikileaks founder and publisher Julian Assange makes one final appeal before UK judges to avoid being extradited to the US to face 175 years in prison, press freedom advocates worldwide call on the governments of the US and UK to cease the years-long persecution. Journalism itself is on trial. What to expect? Also today: Trump 2.0 a "Christian nationalist" Administration? Also - Is it really "white supremacism" to like reading?
The usual suspects have decided that Russian president Putin had "dissident" Alexei Navalny killed in prison. Neocons in the US are demanding money for Ukraine because of it. But who is he? Also today: New poll shows most Americans want Ukraine war to be over.
Remember The "CARES" Act? That was when the federal government spent trillions (that it didn't have) to hand out for the lockdowns (that should never have happened). When the Fed prints trillions of dollars, prices skyrocket. When prices skyrocket, shoplifting increases as well. We get rising crime and a lower standard of living because the government "CARES"? The federal government and Federal Reserve create problems and then compound them! Limited government and sound money can get us out of this predicament.
An overwhelming majority in the Australian parliament has voted to request that charges against Julian Assange be dropped and that he be allowed to return to his native country. The UK high court will hold hearings next week on whether Assange can continue to argue his case against extradition to the US, where he faces 175 years in prison. Also today: the pro-war faction of Congress is maneuvering to get the military aid supplemental to the floor. Finally, House Intel Committee Chairman rolls out very suspicious "national security warning" regarding Russia.
A new bombshell report by Matt Taibbi and Michael Shellenberger shows that the Obama Administration intelligence agencies used their foreign counterparts to spy on the Trump campaign and its personnel. Why? They wanted the dirt on Trump, but it would have been illegal for the CIA to do the spying. Also today: Biden DHS head Mayorkas impeached in the House. Finally: DEI in the sky should make you afraid to fly!
With the collaboration of most Senate Republicans, the US upper body "survived" a valiant filibuster effort by Sen. Rand Paul and others and passed a nearly $100 foreign military aid bill with any mention of the US border removed. Sen. Vance pointed out the several poison pills in the bill that would unconstitutionally bind any new Trump Administration, yet Senate Republicans ignored him. Also today: a panicked Congress seeks to forbid a future President Trump from getting out of NATO.
After a terrible week for President Biden, one in which the special prosecutor determined that Biden should not be charged over mishandling of classified documents because he was not mentally fit, a new poll shows the vast majority of Americans think he is just too old for another term. There is something the poll is missing, though... Also today: CDC vs CDC on masks. Finally - Dems panic that Trump might shut down their censorship agency.
When politicians spend money that they don't have ($34 trillion+) the Fed has to counterfeit money into existence. Everyone then has to adapt to the dollar losing value. Companies too have to adapt, by cutting costs and via "shrinkflation" (i.e., charging the same amount for less product). The companies aren't being "greedy." They're just adapting to actual greed -- politicians spending money that they do not have.
Today the US Supreme Court takes up the case of Colorado banning former President Trump from the ballot. Is this a legal case? Political case? Both? What to expect? Also today, surprise: no charges expected in Biden's classified documents case. Finally: "We have troops in Syria? Really?
Showing their disdain for journalism and fear of losing control of the narrative, leading EU politicians are calling for a travel ban on journalist Tucker Carlson over an interview he will release with Russian president Putin. And the interview is not even out yet! Also today: Rare failure of Israel funding bill in the House and McConnell losing control of Senate Republicans.
It is through constant lies that the war party generates the wars that bring them unlimited profits. As Congress ponders spending nearly another $100 billion on permanent wars, how do they keep fooling Americans into thinking it's "national security"? Also today: Ukraine weapons skim. Finally: New poll spells trouble for Biden's Middle East policy.
Tix for RPI/Mises TX Spring Conference:
The Biden Administration's attacks on Syria and Iraq over the weekend was supposed to deter the various militias from continuing to attack US military outposts in the two countries. But it hasn't worked. And it won't work. As Doug Macgregor writes in the American Conservative, Biden's bombing is "pointless...virtue signaling." Also today: Senate border bill is DOA in the House. Speaker Johnson moves to fund Israel in a standalone bill.
Philip Patrick joins the Liberty Report to talk about the grim future of America's economy.
With an estimated half a million Ukrainian soldiers dead, there is one "bright spot" in the US proxy war with Russia: the US military -industrial complex has used the war as a live-fire testing ground for the latest weapons. As Politico reports, a batch of "Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bombs" will soon be tested in Ukraine. The US military has not even received these weapons. Also today: Russian investigators claim a US Patriot missile shot down a Russian cargo plane carrying Ukrainian prisoners of war. Finally: More Texas border woes for Biden.
