Fool’s Errand Turns 1

My book, Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan came out a year ago today. It was good timing since I knew that Trump was about to launch his first escalation there and that other than that, the status quo would hold: the Taliban would continue to slowly...

6/14/19 Ron Paul on the Prospects for Liberty Today

Ron Paul talks about his storied political career and the prospects for liberty under the Trump presidency. Paul is skeptical of Trump’s trade strategies, but holds out hope that his good instincts on certain foreign policy issues will translate into an actual reduction of the American empire. Paul says that although socialism has become fashionable in some parts of the country, many Americans are surprisingly receptive to the libertarian message that what we really need is more liberty, less war, and sound money.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Breaking Washington’s Addiction to War” (Eventbrite)
  • “Japanese tanker owner contradicts U.S. officials over explosives used in Gulf of Oman attack” (NBC)

Former congressman and American hero Ron Paul is the host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. Dr. Paul is the author of numerous books, including Swords into Plowshares and The Revolution: A Manifesto. Follow him on Twitter, @RonPaul.

6/14/19 Ramzy Baroud on Israeli Apartheid

Scott interviews Ramzy Baroud about the conundrum Israel finds itself in today. On the one hand, they claim to be the only liberal democratic regime in the middle of a hostile region, and that they are committed to reaching peace with the Palestinians. On the other hand, Netanyahu’s government has no real intentions of a two state solution, or even of a single Israeli state where Palestinians are given full citizenship. Israel is quickly slipping into apartheid, says Baroud, with a clear message that Palestinians just don’t matter.

Discussed on the show:

Ramzy Baroud is a US-Arab journalist and is the editor-in-chief of the Palestine Chronicle. He is the author of My Father Was A Freedom Fighter: The Untold Story of Gaza. His new book is The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story. Follow Ramzy on Twitter @RamzyBaroud and read his work at RamzyBaroud.net.

6/10/19 Jim Epstein on Brazilian Libertarians’ Alliance with Jair Bolsonaro

Reason’s Jim Epstein joins the show to discuss the Brazilian libertarians who are trying to influence the Bolsonaro government. Brazil has the largest and fastest growing libertarian community in the world, and though this arrangement can be seen as a major political victory, Epstein worries that the alliance could hurt the reputation of libertarians in the country and in the United States.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Libertarians Forged an Alliance With Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Was It a Deal With the Devil?” (Reason)

6/10/19 Gareth Porter on the Latest Excuse for War with Iran

Gareth Porter joins the show to explain the latest event being sold as evidence for the need to attack Iran. Evidenceless as usual, the claim that Iran is behind the sabotage of Saudi ships is based only on the fact that they had motive to do it. Porter’s theory? This could have really been a false flag attack by Israel, hoping it would provoke an American response against Iran.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Pentagon’s phony Iran “evidence”: New rationale for U.S. intervention?” (Salon.com)
  • “UAE accuses ‘state actor’ for tanker attacks, but stops just short of Iran” (Fox News)

Gareth Porter is an investigative historian and journalist on the national security state, and author of Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare. Follow him on Twitter @GarethPorter and listen to Gareth’s previous appearances on the Scott Horton Show.
