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?

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

Despite the failure of each US intervention thus far in the 21st century, President Obama’s made it clear in a speech at this year’s West Point graduation ceremony that interventionism and American exceptionalism would continue to guide his administration over its final two years. The president said, “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being,” adding the dubious claim that “because of American diplomacy and foreign assistance, as well as the sacrifices of our military — more people live under elected governments today than at any time in human history.”

Ron Paul: What Does The US Government Want in Ukraine?

Why the US government is involved in Ukraine in the first place. We are broke. We cannot even afford to fix our own economy. Yet we want to run Ukraine? Does it really matter who Ukrainians elect to represent them? Is it really a national security matter worth risking a nuclear war with Russia whether Ukraine votes for more regional autonomy and a weaker central government? Isn’t that how the United States was originally conceived?

How Cronyism Is About To Kill Florida Micro-Breweries – Ben Swann

The Florida State Senate just passed SB 1714, a bill which was crafted and supported by Florida Wholesale Beer Association. The bill restricts how much craft breweries can sell to consumers. The way the bill is constructed micro-breweries can sell up to 2,000 kegs a year of their own brew in any size container. But if they sell more than 2, 000 kegs a year, the bill prohibits them from selling their beer in sealed cans or bottles for home consumption directly from the microbrewery
