Chris Hedges: Pity the Children

Watch: The Fall of Iraq – What You’re Not Being Told

Iraq is descending into chaos, but not for the reasons you’re being fed by the politicians and the mainstream media.

Ron Paul: Haven’t We Already Done Enough Damage in Iraq?

Ron Paul: Because of the government’s foolish policy of foreign interventionism, the U.S. is faced with two equally stupid choices: either pour in resources to prop up an Iraqi government that is a close ally with Iran, or throw our support in with al-Qaeda in Iraq (as we have done in Syria). I say we must follow a third choice: ally with the American people and spend not one more dollar or one more life attempting to re-make the Middle East. Haven’t we have already done enough damage?

Putin ‘like Hitler’? How did Prince Charles get it so wrong?

Obama Could Be Facing 10 Years to Life in Prison – Judge Napolitano

Judge Andrew Napolitano explains that the Taliban prisoner exchange was illegal because taxpayer dollars were spent to remove the prisoners from Guantanamo Bay without giving Congress a 30 day notice. Napolitano goes a step further by pointing out that President Obama has provided material assistance (human assets) to the Taliban, which has been identified by Congress to be a non-state terrorist organization. This is a crime punishable by imprisonment of 10 years to life, which covers all Americans–including the President.

Ron Paul: Obama’s Foreign Policy Rhetoric Does Not Match US Actions
