Imperial Presidency Wins Again: Trump's Veto Continues Yemen War

Daniel McAdams at 7 hours ago
Yesterday, President Trump vetoed his second bill as president. S. J. Res. 7 directed the president to cease US military activities in support of the Saudi war on Yemen and his veto signifies that he intends to continue in a war that he may not have started but that he is escalating. The White House statement on the veto is full of fallacies and contradictions. We take that apart - and share some idea on what we can do next - in today's Liberty Report:

From Jesus Christ to Julian Assange: When Dissidents Become Enemies of the State

John W. Whitehead at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” — George Orwell When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime, you are being ruled by criminals. In the current governmental climate, where laws that run counter to the dictates of the Constitution are made in secret, passed without debate, and upheld by secret courts that operate behind closed doors, obeying one’s conscience and speaking truth to the power of the police state can render you an “enemy of the state.” That list of so-called “enemies of the state” is growing.

Washington’s Biggest Fairy Tale: 'Truth Will Out'

James Bovard at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] The arrest of Julian Assange has produced rapturous cheering from the American political elite. Hillary Clinton declared that Assange “must answer for what he has done.” Unfortunately, Assange’s arrest will do nothing to prevent the vast majority of conniving politicians and bureaucrats from paying no price for deceiving the American public. “Truth will out” is a phrase that is routinely recited to keep Americans paying and obeying. Politicians and editorial writers toss this phrase out to simmer down any fears that the government might be conspiring against the ... more »

'Pompeo Has Lost His Mind!' - China Fires Back On Venezuela

Daniel McAdams at 7 hours ago
On his Latin American "overthrow Venezuela" tour, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hammered China, accusing it of "prolonging" the regime by continuing to trade and invest with the Maduro government. The Chinese shot back at him over the preposterous claim, wondering out loud what many are wondering: has Pompeo lost his mind? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:

Why the Gulf States Are So Edgy

Alastair Crooke at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] A little more than a decade ago, I was asked to address a London dinner-table of about twenty Gulf “figures” – a mix of Ambassadors and those with “ties to power”. All represented the cosmopolitan, rich élite of the Gulf. Then, towards the evening’s end, talk turned to Hizbullah: the gathering simply erupted into flames. Well, almost literally – as these grandees choked on the smoke and tongues of fire pouring from their nostrils (to say they were unhappy is an understatement). In unison, they swore oaths that they would stop at absolutely nothing to destroy “the ... more »

The Railroad That Awaits Julian Assange

John Kiriakou at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] The Justice Department said Thursday that it was charging Julian Assange with one felony count of conspiring to hack into a computer. In the greater scheme of things, that’s a nonsensical charge. There are probably 10,000 fat, lonely guys, living in their parents’ basements who the government could charge with that crime on any given day. Assange’s attorneys in the UK say the extradition process might last five years because it will likely end up in the European Court of Justice. If true, conceivably Assange could be detained for five years awaiting extradition,... more »

Co-Conspirator: Ecuador Paid Off To Deliver Assange

Daniel McAdams at 7 hours ago
The timing was hardly "coincidental." Not long after a trip by Vice President Pence to "convince" Ecuador to hand over Julian Assange, a $4.2 billion IMF loan appears on the scene. Then Ecuador follows through and delivers the Wikileaks publisher to face the wrath of the US political establishment. The move was directly out of a US government "unconventional warfare' playbook that, ironically, was released in 2008 by...Wikileaks! Join us for today's Liberty Report:

Iraq Wrecked Me for Nothing

Peter Van Buren at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] I recently spoke to some college students who, I realized, were in fifth grade when I got on a plane to Iraq. They now study that stuff in history classes like “Opportunities and Errors: 21st-Century America in the Middle East.” About halfway through our conversation, I realized it’s coming up on 10 years since I first went to Iraq. Now that’s real history. I was a Foreign Service Officer then, a diplomat, embedded with the US Army at a series of forward operating bases and in charge of a couple of reconstruction teams, small parts of a complex failure to rebuild ... more »

Julian Assange: Political Prisoner

Ron Paul at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] Last week’s arrest of Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange by the British government on a US extradition order is an attack on all of us. It is an attack on the US Constitution. It is an attack on the free press. It is an attack on free speech. It is an attack on our right to know what our government is doing with our money in our name. Julian Assange is every bit as much a political prisoner as was Cardinal Mindszenty in Hungary or Nelson Mandela in South Africa. They, and so many more, were imprisoned because they told the truth about their governments. Repressi... more »

I’m Jumping Off the Trump Train: Assange Was the Last Straw

James George Jatras at 7 hours ago

No doubt this declaration from your Working Boy will be greeted with the same deafening indifference as my earlier less than earth-shattering announcement of support. Keep calm. The planet will continue to spin on its axis at a 23.44 degree tilt. As I tweeted on April 4, when it appeared that Ecuadorian President Lenín [sic] Moreno was going to cough up Julian Assange: “If this comes to pass & #... more »

How You Can Be Certain That The US Charge Against Assange Is Fraudulent

Caitlin Johnstone at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] Julian Assange sits in a jail cell today after being betrayed by the Ecuadorian government and his home country of Australia. A British judge named Michael Snow has found the WikiLeaks founder guilty of violating bail conditions, inserting himself into the annals of history by labeling Assange “a narcissist who cannot get beyond his own selfish interest.” So that tells you how much of a fair and impartial legal proceeding we can expect to see from the British judicial process on this matter. But the real reason that Assange has been surrendered by the Ecuadorian ... more »

Who Is Killing Whom in the Middle East? Blaming Iran Might be an Excuse for War

Philip Giraldi at 7 hours ago
[image: undefined] Newsweek is reporting a story regarding how Iran “was responsible for the deaths of at least 608 American troops in Iraq between 2003 and 2011.” The account is sourced to a newly revised estimate prepared by analysts at the Pentagon that was discussed by Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook at a State Department press briefing on April 2nd. According to Hook, Tehran is now being blamed for 17 per cent of all US military deaths because it supplied weapons to the several Shiite militias that were opposing the US invasion, occupation and subsequent presence in ... more »

Now that the Mueller report is out, we can rest assured. Betsy DeVos is just window dressing. The fish really does stink from the top.

But Mueller’s report should have a better title.
