    By Finian Cunningham December 14, 2019 Ratcheting economic sanctions, military force encirclement, inciting seditious violence and relentless war rhetoric. This all by the US and its allies over the past year towards Iran, yet it is Iran which is portrayed as posing “potential threats” to American interests. The hastily arranged meeting last week between Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had the hallmarks of a war-plan summit amid a peak in renewed media provocation against Iran. In the last weeks there has been a flurry of US media reports claiming that Iran is secretly moving ballistic missiles into Iraq and elsewhere across the region. As usual the media credulously cite anonymous intelligence and Pentagon officials on those claims. Here’s CNN quoting one administration official: “There has been consistent intelligence in the last several weeks,” the official said, referring to “a potential Iranian threat against US forces and interests in the Middle East.”

    john kiriakou dec 14, 2019 Ron Paul Institute The New York Times last week published shocking drawings by Guantanamo prisoner Abu Zubaydah showing in graphic detail the types of tortures he endured at the hands of CIA officers and contractors at secret prisons around the world. The drawings were sickening. With a child’s simplicity, they showed the irrational cruelty of the CIA’s torture program, which weakened our country, violated domestic and international law and ended up saying so much more about us, as Americans, than it did about the terrorists who wished us harm. The Times did its duty of reminding us what monsters the CIA produced in the early years of its so-called war on terror, people introduced to most Americans in the Senate’s torture report. These are people such as the CIA’s former Director George Tenet and Deputy Director John McLaughlin. They include unapologetic torture proponents such as former Deputy Director for Operations Jose Rodriguez and current CIA Director Gina Haspel. They are the creators of the torture program: psychologists James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen. And in the photos of Abu Zubaydah’s drawing that the Times ran, the CIA dutifully blacked out even the stick-figure sketches of the actual torturers, those CIA officers who sold their souls to break the law, all in honor of that false god called “national security.”

    Daniel McAdams friday december 13, 2019 How enthusiastic should non-interventionists be about what appear to be "popular uprisings" overseas? RPI's Daniel McAdams argues at the Mises Institute's Lake Jackson Symposium that endorsing CIA-backed "regime change" operations overseas makes one responsible for the chaos and destruction when these "color revolts" inevitably devolve into disaster. When the CIA wants to change a regime, real non-interventionists should resist the urge to act as a conveyor belt for US regime propaganda: http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2019/december/13/how-not-to-be-a-cia-propagandist/

Every one of our actions has a purpose in mind. They each have a desired end that we have chosen to (at least attempt to) achieve.

    I am not the least bit interested in this impeachment circus, as it stands and in the news. It is all a distraction. Face the facts, trump signed that POS, the dems AND repugs are licking their chops. I believe you are here to defend the status quo, throwing slivers of bones here and there to keep up shallow appearances. That USMCA will usher in the likes of what few understand.

    Immigrants selling fruit on the side of a street, without a permit. Immigrants seeking to open up businesses and attempting to pay less extortion. Immigrants who are more aware of what’s going on in the world than most Americans (Common Core) and in Section 8. Immigrants who are armed but do not buy “permits” and thus considered criminals/illegal. It is the old ladies with dyed red hair, and the old guys with trump stitched onto their ball cap, who sit on (R) committees who fight tooth and nail, when they believe “common sense” legislation should be passed and to “save the children”. The same ones who think I am nuts/bat-sh|t-crazy/insane because I announce that the 2A is the only permit needed and free of charge. You color, immigrant haters and freedom to travel freely restrictionists have no clue to what you are talking about. Or maybe you do. For all I know, you are the very ones with dyed red hair and trump stitched onto your ball cap who attend the (R) committee meetings. You know, the same leftists who chose romney over Paul that I dealt with and still do all of the time.

    Everybody in Latin America knows what happens to leftist heads of state who challenge the power of the local elites and of the US government. By Alan MacLeod December 12, 2019 President Donald Trump announced that he will designate Mexican drug cartels as “terrorists”, paving the way for a potentially massive increase in American military involvement directly south of its border. “They will be designated,” Trump told ex-Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly during an interview, revealing that he asked the Mexican government for permission to put soldiers on the ground: “let us go in and clean it out,” Trump said, revealing that they have “so far has rejected the offer. But at some point, something has to be done.” Mexico’s left-wing president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, commonly referred to by his initials, AMLO, hit back Friday, insisting that his country had not been invaded for more than a century and that he would not permit an invasion under his watch, revealing exactly how he understood Trump’s offer.

    By Andrew P. Napolitano December 12, 2019 Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 1978 in response to the unlawful surveillance of Americans by the FBI and the CIA during the Watergate era. President Richard Nixon — who famously quipped after leaving office that “when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal” — used the FBI and the CIA to spy on his political opponents. The stated reason was national security. Nixon claimed that foreign agents physically present in the U.S. agitated and aggravated his political opponents to produce the great public unrest in America in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and thus diminished Americans’ appetite for fighting the Vietnam War. There was, of course, no evidence to support that view, but the neocons in Congress and the military-industrial complex supported it even after Nixon left office. This view — there are foreigners among us who wish us harm — came to fruition during the presidency of Jimmy Carter, who pushed for the enactment of FISA. FISA’s stated purpose was to limit — not expand — the government’s surveillance powers by requiring the intervention and permission of a judge.

    Congress is Trump’s Co-Conspirator Against Liberty written by ron paul - monday december 9, 2019 Imagine that President Trump spent his phone call with the Ukrainian president threatening to withhold military aid unless the Ukrainian government agreed to use the money to purchase weapons from a US manufacturer. Does anyone seriously think that foreign service professionals and deep state operatives would be so shocked and offended by Trump’s request that they would launch efforts to impeach him? Would Congress view this as “high crimes and misdemeanors” or applaud Trump for carrying out one of modern presidents’ supposedly most important jobs — acting as salesmen for the American military-industrial complex? This hypothetical shows that impeachment is not about President Trump’s abuse of power. Instead, it is an attempt to make sure President Trump, and all future presidents, confine their abuses of power to items that advance the agenda of the political establishment. President Trump’s most consequential abuses of power have been met with the full approval of the majority in Congress, the mainstream media, and the deep state. For example, when President Trump launched military action in Syria without obtaining a congressional declaration of war there were no calls for his impeachment. Instead, most members of Congress were perfectly happy to let stand unchallenged President Trump’s claim that the 2001 authorization for use of military force —a limited grant of authority to act against those responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks — gave him the authority to launch military action against a government that had nothing to do with the September 11th attacks. The only times Congress rebukes President Trump’s foreign policy is when he speaks favorably about pursuing peaceful relations with Russia or ending US involvement in no-win military conflicts. This hypocrisy extends beyond foreign policy. Many Democrats who claim that President Trump is both a fascist and mentally unhinged are eager to ensure President Trump can continue to conduct warrantless surveillance on every American by reauthorizing Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act.
