Big Military Spending Boost Threatens Our Economy and Security

by Ron Paul Posted on July 18, 2017

President Trump’s request already included a huge fifty or so billion dollar spending increase, but the Republican-led House found even that to be far too small.

9/11 Doesn’t Justify Today’s Wars

In a late-June session of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) successfully added an amendment to a Defense Appropriations Bill that would repeal the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF).

The passage of this amendment sends a positive signal that America’s war-making capabilities will finally be the subject of a debate, at least on the House floor. On July 12, Lee even met with Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan to discuss the matter. Unfortunately, it appears that Lee’s amendment is being threatened by Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), who has offered up a replacement bill that, instead of repealing the 2001 AUMF, would ask Congress to clarify war powers and goals.

Google’s scheme of paying professors to influence public opinion is also how the “global warming” scam works.

“Google operates a little-known program to harness the brain power of university researchers to help sway opinion and public policy, cultivating financial relationships with professors at campuses from Harvard University to the University of California, Berkeley,” the WSJ reported.

IBD throws down the gauntlet on Comey and Mueller

By Thomas Lifson

It needed to be said, and Investor’s Business Daily has stepped up and said it well, now that we have reason to believe that a majority of the memos prepared by James Comey on his conversations with the president contained classified information. An IBD editorial extends the logic of the situation to the ultimate conclusion that the special counsel, Robert Mueller, must recuse himself from investigations of President Trump. The writing is excellent, so I urge you to read the whole thing, but here are some key excerpts:
