China’s ‘Digital Dictatorship’…And Ours

China's "social credit" system is widely viewed as a kind of "digital dictatorship," where not only does illegal or anti-social behavior result in lower scores and therefore less privileges, but political dissent also earns one lower "social credit" scores. While the anti-China crowd is busy pointing a finger at Beijing for such an authoritarian approach, a similar system is being put in place in the United States. How?

What Happened To The Ron Paul Blimp? Ten Years Of Liberty, With Guest Joby Weeks

The Ron Paul presidential campaigns were largely driven by the amazing grassroots response. From the "money bombs" that shocked the mainstream political establishment to the creative operations such as the Ron Paul blimp and Ron Paul limo, it was average (but extraordinary) people who made Ron Paul's campaigns so successful. One such extraordinary person was Joby Weeks, who was the brains and the backing of several of the great Ron Paul for president grassroots project. Joby joins us in today's Liberty Report to look back...and ahead:

‘Fort Trump’…In Poland?

When the Polish president came to town this week, he brought an offer of $2 billion toward the cost of putting in a permanent US military base on his soil. He even sweetened the deal by jokingly offering to name it "Fort Trump." Joking aside, does establishing a permanent US military base so close to Russia's border really do anything for US security? Or is it just a provocation? Is Russia really about to launch a land war to take over Europe? More in today's Liberty Report:

Russian Plane Shot Down Near Syria – Who’s At Fault?

Last night Israeli F-16s attacked the area near the Syrian coastal city of Latakia. It appears in the course of the attack, Syrian air defense missiles may have hit a Russian surveillance aircraft, killing 15 Russian service members. The Israelis blame the Syrians for using old air defense systems, while in fact they have been the loudest voices arguing against any upgrade of Syrian defenses (it would make it harder to bomb the country). Meanwhile the Russo-Turk agreement on Idlib has defused the threat of an imminent Russian attack on the province and has thwarted US and western government plans to retaliate against the Syrian government.

‘How Presstitutes Rob America of Peace & Prosperity’ – Gerald Celente at RPI’s Media & War Conference

The mainstream media in the US is a joke. A really bad joke. Far from reporting facts and providing analysis, they are sell-outs and "presstitutes." Famed trends forecaster and president of the Trends Research Institute Gerald Celente delivers an extremely informative, pointed, and entertaining look at what passes for the fourth estate in the United States today. What's happened to the media? You won't want to miss this!

“President Trump’s New Pax Americana” – Col.Douglas Macgregor Speaks at RPI Media & War Conference

Do we have any reason at all to hope for a less militaristic foreign policy under President Trump? Col. Macgregor has seen war up close - he led the charge against the Iraqi Republican Guard in the 1991 Iraq war - and he's had enough of the US empire. In his Media & War speech he offers a way out of the neocon militarism that dominates Washington:

Pompeo Green-Lights More Saudi Slaughter In Yemen

On the very day we heard that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certified that the Saudi/UAE coalition was doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties in its war on Yemen, yet another Saudi airstrike hit a civilian bus and killed at least 15 people. Congressional efforts to address the unconstitutional US involvement in the Yemen war have been toothless. The hypocrisy of US foreign policy is laid bare in Washington's Yemen policy.
