    Josh Rogin, Propagandist Ep. 228

    https://youtu.be/KOfe5385Pjw
    In this episode, I profile one of this era's most influential neoconservative voices, Josh Rogin. Rogin is a twice weekly columnist at the CIA Washington Post, where he advocates for US interventionism in every possible foreign entanglement. In the second half, I review his recent column, which argues that the US can and should confront both Russia and China at the same time.

    Pelosi's Pickled Provocation Ep. 227

    In the last two weeks, I spent a great deal of time covering Nancy Pelosi's reckless diplomatic visit to Taiwan. As a part of my coverage, I made a panel appearance on Around the Empire with JoAnne Leon and was glad to be a guest on It's Too Late with Alan Mosley. I felt like they were both strong appearances, so I am running them this week on the podcast.

    Lies, Damned Lies, & War Propaganda ft. Prof CJ Ep. 226

    https://youtu.be/Qp4xpGlxsx8
    In this week's episode, I invited Prof. CJ of the Dangerous History Podcast on to talk about Part I of his current podcast series. In Part I, Prof. CJ explores the "massive British propaganda operation in the US that ran from 1914-1917 (during the period of American 'neutrality'), which was a crucial factor in eventually bringing the US into World War I." Although Prof. CJ has produced a number of exhaustive and excellent podcasts about US history, he labels this one as being the "most important Dangerous History Podcast episode" to date. And as the "powers that shouldn't be" marshal their forces of deception and deceit to pull the United States into another world war, the importance of Prof. CJ's most recent offering should be apparent to all of my listeners.

    The Danger of the Fake China Threat ft. Joseph Solis-Mullen Ep. 225

    The Danger of the Fake China Threat ft. Joseph Solis-Mullen Ep. 225

    https://youtu.be/OEcx1yQn6ic
    This week, I invited Joseph Solis-Mullen on the show to discuss his most recent article published at the Libertarian Institute. The article, entitled "The Fake China Threat and Its Very Real Danger" does an excellent job of demonstrating why China is no threat to the United States. The first half of the episode, Joseph and I walk the listener through the last 180 years of US-Sino relations--a background that is essential for anyone seeking insight into this topic. In the second half, we discuss the inflated China threat.
    Joseph Solis-Mullen is a political scientist, journalist, and author. He is a current graduate student in the economics department at the University of Missouri. His work can be found at The Mises Institute, the Libertarian Institute, Eurasian Review, Journal of the American Revolution, Antiwar.com, and the Journal of Libertarian Studies.

    Laurie Calhoun returns to the show to discuss her article "A MAD Heist" and Chapter 6 (Real Leaders) of her book "War and Delusion." In so doing, we dissect the insanity of the West's Ukraine policy from a critical lens, focusing on the psychology and underlying schools of thought behind each side's policies and how this relates to public reaction to the conflict and its fallout.

    US Intelligence and Extremism: from 9/11 to Ukraine ft. Adam Fitzgerald Ep. 223

    Show Notes: http://www.libertyweekly.net/223
    https://youtu.be/Mi7wOSzR64Q
    Back on December 5, I invited researcher Adam Fitzgerald on to the show for an expansive discussion about psychological operations. The discussion was one of my many favorite interviews, and it was a very popular episode. In this week's episode, Adam returns for another expansive discussion. This time, we explore the relationships that US intelligence agencies, NGOs, and think tanks have with extremist groups.

    Specifically, we discuss the acceptance and influence of Ukrainian Nazis and Nazi collaborators in the US foreign policy establishment. We also discuss the failure of US intelligence agencies like the CIA, NSA, and FBI to catch the 9/11 hijackers. At the end of the episode, Adam shares a groundbreaking information release that provides the most solid link to date of Saudi Arabian government assistance given to two 9/11 hijackers.

Great show.

Patrick MacFarlane is a rising star in the Liberty movement. His honest reporting on Liberty Weekly is a much needed addition to the antiwar platform.

Bringing Liberty to the masses

Fantastic, unbiased show

Say what you will about the “Libertarian party” (consistently lackluster IMO), but the (small L) libertarian stance on war & foreign policy has been consistently awesome. Patrick’s podcast is yet another shining example of an anti-imperialist, anti war show coming from the libertarian institute (run by the great Scott Horton). Be sure to follow, because it’s one of a handful of excellent, unbiased sources of news and commentary.
