After George W. Bush and the crazed neocon foreign policy was thoroughly discredited, Barack Obama ran and won as the peace candidate.

The peace candidate always wins -- even if he is a liar (see: Woodrow Wilson, FDR, GW Bush, etc.). While many of us hoped for the best, we also knew there was little chance of Obama changing course.

Instead of living up to his Nobel Peace Prize billing, Obama...

This week a report was released stating that the richest eight individuals in the world have more wealth than everyone else combined. You're expected to perceive this as a problem, without putting thought into whether or not the mega-rich earned their money legitimately in the marketplace, or parasitically through government intervention.

You're also expected to rally behind government...

Yesterday, I joined CNBC's Futures Now program to discuss the incoming Trump administration and why we can expect increases in both government spending and debt. We also touched upon the gold and silver markets as well. You can watch the brief clip below:​

Whenever government claims it's going to help you, grab your wallet (they haven't abolished cash yet) and run!!

Government claimed that it would magically make college more affordable. Over $1.4 TRILLION would be pumped into the university "system". Since supply and demand never yields to government wishes, the cost of going to college naturally skyrocketed.

Those who government promised to...

Sen. John McCain has just released his plan for a massive expansion in US military spending: five trillion dollars over the next five years! He wants the US to be able to fight conventional wars in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Are we back in the 1950s? Will President Trump buy into this economy-busting plan? We take it apart in today's Liberty Report:

As I have said many times in the past, the American people are very generous and compassionate. It's a great error to believe that if government doesn't do something, that no one else will. Accepting such a notion opens the door wide open for one government power grab after another.

This afternoon, in response to Senator Bernie Sanders' assertion that "we are not a compassionate society," my...

President Obama's surprise move to commute whistleblower Chelsea Manning's 35 year sentence was cheered among opponents of the national security state and attacked by neocons and Republicans in Congress. Do we want government transparency? Then we need to stop putting whistleblowers in jail!

Trump's Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, is going through her confirmation hearing. At one point Senator Bernie Sanders brought up "tuition-free" colleges, one of the many unicorns that live in progressive imaginations. Mrs. DeVos replied to Sanders with a rational statement. She said: "Nothing is ever free—someone has to pay for it."

In Washington, that's almost a revolutionary statement....

I am pleased to hear that whistleblower Chelsea Manning has had her sentence commuted by President Obama! We need much more transparency in our government and much more privacy for our citizens -- and no one should be punished for telling us the truth!

I think the thing that I admire the most about Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is that he preached non-violent civil disobedience. Most people will not talk about Rev. King's anti-war views, and it may have been one of the reasons that he was assassinated.

In honor of Rev. King's birthday, I'd like to share some heroic quotes of his against the American military empire:

When Martin Luther King took on the Vietnam War, he burned bridges with powerful Washington politicians, including LBJ. It might have been what got him killed. He understood the connection between the war overseas and the war at home. He warned against the "superficial patriotism" of the warmongers. We look at the antiwar MLK in today's MLK Day Liberty Report:

Last week Congress passed a budget that would increase the national debt by $1.7 trillion over the next ten years. Most “fiscal conservatives" voted "yes." Does anyone expect Republican control of the executive and legislative branches of government to result in any less spending? Read more in my weekly column:
