Scott talks with Tim Shorrock about the build-up to today’s tension with North Korea. Shorrock takes us back to the 1990s when the U.S. and North Korean governments were making serious headway in negotiating a formal end to the Korean war. At the time, the North Korean nuclear program was nonexistent. By the end of the decade, there were even serious talks taking place about ending the entire missile program. Then George W. Bush came in and, with the help of John Bolton, ruined everything. Scott and Shorrock talk about what went wrong, how it was almost fixed during the Trump administration and how things spiraled back out of control—again thanks largely to John Bolton.  Discussed on the show: The Shorrock Files — Patreon  “U.S. Government Quietly Declassifies Post-9/11 Interview With Bush and Cheney” (The Intercept) Tim Shorrock is the author of Spies For Hire: The Secret World of Intelligence Outsourcing and a regular contributor to The Nation and the Korea Center for Investigative Reporting.

Scott is joined by David Stockman to talk about the economic issues facing the world today. To start, Stockman explains where the American economy stands today. He argues that the crash of 2020 represents the next stage in a 50-year evolution of the boom-bust cycle. They also touch on the labor markets, which Stockman argues are not doing as well as the news would have you believe. Next they turn to China, where Stockman says an accelerating slide back towards central planning that’s all built on an absurd level of debt should dispel the idea we’re headed for a world run by Beijing. He also debunks the myth that China has been waging an effective economic war on the U.S. since the 1990s. Instead, Stockman says America’s economic troubles are all the Fed’s fault. Lastly, Scott and Stockman take a step back and look at how the dollar is faring on a global scale.  Discussed on the show: David Stockman’s Contra Corner David Stockman is the ultimate Washington insider turned iconoclast. He began his career in Washington as a young man and quickly rose through the ranks of the Republican Party to become the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. After leaving the White House, Stockman had a 20-year career on Wall Street. He is the author of Trumped!, The Triumph of Politics, and his history of the financial crisis, The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America.

This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott talks with retired Colonel Douglas Macgregor about the war in Ukraine. From the beginning, Macgregor has been very critical of the Biden Administration’s myopic insistence on escalation. Now, it appears that a divide has broken out within Washington about how much further the U.S. and NATO can go. Scott and Macgregor discuss this evolving dynamic and reflect on all the missed chances for peace that would have left Ukraine with more territory and fewer lives lost. Now, with what appears to be a massive Russian offensive in the works, Macgregor says the west must put an end to the war as soon as possible.  Discussed on the show: “Playing at War in Ukraine” (The American Conservative) “It’s Time to Bring Russia and Ukraine to the Negotiating Table” (New York Times) “Will Biden Gamble on a Ukraine Coalition?” (The American Conservative) Scott’s interview with Lyle Goldstein Why is Ukraine the West's Fault? Featuring John Mearsheimer Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) is a senior fellow with The American Conservative, the former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, a decorated combat veteran, and the author of five books.

Scott and Macgregor discuss this evolving dynamic and reflect on all the missed chances for peace that would have left Ukraine with more territory and fewer lives lost. Now, with what appears to be a massive Russian offensive in the works, Macgregor says the west must put an end to the war as soon as possible. 

Discussed on the show:

Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) is a senior fellow with The American Conservative, the former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, a decorated combat veteran, and the author of five books.

11/4/22 Ted Snider: The US Admits Iran Isn’t Building a Nuclear Bomb https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/11-4-22-ted-snider-the-us-admits-iran-isnt-building-a-nuclear-bomb/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=11-4-22-ted-snider-the-us-admits-iran-isnt-building-a-nuclear-bomb Mon, 07 Nov 2022 23:38:15 +0000 https://libertarianinstitute.org/?p=251813  Download Episode. Scott brings Ted Snider back on to discuss a major story that nobody but Antiwar.com appears to be covering. The Biden Administration recently declassified its Nuclear Posture Review where it is admitted that Iran is not working towards a nuclear bomb. After a quick discussion about how U.S. nuclear strike policy has evolved since the Cold War, Scott and Snider dig into this bombshell of a story. They reflect back on all the revelations that made it clear the Iran nuclear weapons program was a hoax. Now, this official acknowledgment really drives home how ridiculous all this chest-thumping has been. Scott and Snider finish with a quick discussion about how the U.S. has created and prolonged the nuclear tension with North Korea.  Discussed on the show: “US Admits Iran Is Not Building a Nuclear Bomb” (Antiwar.com) The Threat by Andrew Cockburn Manufactured Crisis by Gareth Porter Losing an Enemy by Trita Parsi “When the Ayatollah Said No to Nukes” (Foreign Policy) “Iran, Islam, and Banning the Bomb” (Antiwar.com) Ted Snider has a graduate degree in philosophy and writes on analyzing patterns in U.S. foreign policy and history.

Scott talks with John Robb about the major consequences of Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter. Robb has written about how the internet created a global geopolitical environment determined chiefly by the network effect. Notably, the hysteria surrounding the war in Ukraine is brought about by this network effect in both a top-down and bottom-up fashion. It seems that Musk intends to end the top-down suppression of dissent against the NATO narrative of the war. Scott and Robb discuss possible consequences and examine the broader effect this network has on American politics and foreign policy.  Discussed on the show: Global Guerillas Apocalypse Now Hate Inc by Matt Taibbi John Robb is a former special operator who now writes the Global Guerrillas Report which examines the world at the intersection of war, technology and politics.

Kyle Anzalone joins Scott this week on Antiwar Radio to provide a quick insight into the status of the American empire’s foreign adventurism. They first look to North Korea, where the Biden administration has reversed Trump’s policy of de-escalation and is instead undertaking nuclear brinksmanship for no good reason. Next, they turn to Taiwan and examine the push in Congress to abandon the stable status quo. They then look to Iran where the JCPOA is dead and Washington ineptly drives its enemies together in pursuit of world hegemony. They talk briefly about Yemen where the humanitarian crisis is picking back up post-ceasefire. Finally, they look to Ukraine where both sides are gearing up for a battle over the southern city of Kherson.  Discussed on the show: “Sanctions Relief and the 'Defensive Crouch'” (Substack) “Yemen facing worst food crisis in four years” (The Cradle) 1833stopwar.com  Kyle Anzalone is news editor of the Libertarian Institute, opinion editor of Antiwar.com and co-host of Conflicts of Interest with Will Porter and Connor Freeman.

Scott talks with Ted Snider about some of his recent articles at Antiwar.com. Snider makes the argument that, by deliberately ignoring off-ramps, the U.S. bears just as much responsibility for the ongoing war as any other party. But beyond that, Scott and Snider examine the ways the U.S. and NATO sabotaged Russo-Ukrainian negotiations shortly after the invasion — which Snider argues gives the U.S. an obligation to stop the war before more blood is needlessly spilled.  Discussed on the show: “The Back Door to NATO” (Antiwar.com) “Choosing Sides in the New Cold War” (Antiwar.com) “Who Stopped the War in Ukraine?” (Antiwar.com) “Defense Secretary Tells Ukraine It Will Have ‘What It Needs to Defeat’ Russia” (Antiwar.com) Ted Snider has a graduate degree in philosophy and writes on analyzing patterns in U.S. foreign policy and history.

But beyond that, Scott and Snider examine the ways the U.S. and NATO sabotaged Russo-Ukrainian negotiations shortly after the invasion — which Snider argues gives the U.S. an obligation to stop the war before more blood is needlessly spilled. <br /> <br /> Discussed on the show:<br /> <br /> “The Back Door to NATO” (Antiwar.com)<br /> “Choosing Sides in the New Cold War” (Antiwar.com)<br /> “Who Stopped the War in Ukraine?” (Antiwar.com)<br /> “Defense Secretary Tells Ukraine It Will Have ‘What It Needs to Defeat’ Russia” (Antiwar.com)<br /> <br /> Ted Snider has a graduate degree in philosophy and writes on analyzing patterns in U.S. foreign policy and history. He is a regular writer for Truthout, MondoWeiss and antiwar.com.<br /> <br /> This episode of the Scott Horton Show is sponsored by: The War State and Why The Vietnam War?, by Mike Swanson; Tom Woods’ Liberty Classroom; ExpandDesigns.com/Scott; and Thc Hemp Spot.<br /> <br /> Get Scott’s interviews before anyone else!

Scott is joined by Patrick MacFarlane, the Justin Raimondo Fellow at the Libertarian Institute, to discuss an article he wrote recently as well as the new direction he’s taking his podcast Vital Dissent. Scott and MacFarlane first dig into the growing tension between Washington and Beijing over Taiwan's sovereignty. MacFarlane points out that some of the best opposition to both the policies that provoked Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and NATO’s subsequent response is from populist right-wingers. But those very same people throw all their logic out the window when the topic turns from Russia to China.  Discussed on the show: “Nothing But Welfare Queens: American Aid to Zelensky and Tsai Ing-wen” (Libertarian Institute) Vital Dissent Patrick MacFarlane is the Justin Raimondo Fellow at the Libertarian Institute where he advocates a noninterventionist foreign policy.

This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott talked with James Carden about an article he co-wrote recently with Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation. The article compares the current level of tension between the U.S. and Russia with the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis sixty years ago. They argue that two factors make today’s flare-up more dangerous: a lack of communication channels and an absence of empathy for the other side. Carden explains why we do not need to sympathize with the Russian invasion to recognize that there is room for diplomacy.  Discussed on the show: “How did we avoid a Cuban Missile ‘Armageddon’?

Scott talks with Daniel Davis about the evolving situation on the ground in Ukraine. Davis has his eyes on the southern city of Kherson where the Russian forces are digging in for a Ukrainian attack. Clearly the Ukrainian forces have benefited from NATO weapons, but Davis thinks they’re in for a tough winter as Russia gets reinforcements and Ukraine’s armored divisions wither away. And so he expects the Ukrainians to try and take control of as much ground as possible before December. Scott and Davis also discuss how Russia’s annexations have changed the dynamic of this war.  Discussed on the show: “Biden’s Ukraine Strategy Could Start A Nuclear War With Russia” (19FortyFive) “Inside the U.S. Effort to Arm Ukraine” (The New Yorker) Daniel Davis did multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan during his time in the army. He is a Senior Fellow at Defense Priorities and is the author of the reports “Dereliction of Duty II: Senior Military Leaders’ Loss of Integrity Wounds Afghan War Effort” and “Go Big or Go Deep: An Analysis of Strategy Options on Afghanistan.” Find him on Twitter @DanielLDavis1.

Richard Booth joins Scott to discuss the Oklahoma City bombing. The two go back to the beginning and talk about what originally got them interested in the bombing and how they later joined up to create the largest online archive of relevant documents. They then dig into why this story remains important almost thirty years later. Scott plays a number of audio clips to help the listener understand why there is clearly more to the story than the official conclusion would have us believe. But they also talk about instances where other researchers have gone too far with their assertions. This interview is a good jumping-off point for those who want to start learning about the bombing.  Discussed on the show: Oklahoma City Bombing Archive - The Libertarian Institute Oklahoma City by Andrew Gumbel and Roger G.

Scott interviews author and Cato Institute senior fellow Ted Galen Carpenter about the dangerous situation in Ukraine.

Carpenter argues that broad outspoken opposition to American involvement in the war is vital.  Discussed on the show: “The Global South’s Revolt against Biden’s Russia Policy” (Antiwar.com) “The NATO Vs. Russia Proxy War In Ukraine Could Become A Real War” (19fortyfive) Ted Galen Carpenter is a senior fellow for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute.

Scott interviews Boltzmann Booty, a writer who recently wrote an article about possible CIA ties to the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995. It’s well known that Timothy McVeigh and accomplice Terry Nichols used money stolen from a man named Roger Moore to help fund the bombing. Later on, some research suggested that the robbery of Roger Moore was fake — that Moore used the theft to help fund the attack while keeping his hands clean. In this interview, Booty lays out some of the evidence that may suggest Moore himself was working with the government, specifically the CIA.  Discussed on the show: “The CIA Asset That Funded The Oklahoma City Bombing” (Substack) Oklahoma City Bombing Archive - Libertarian Institute Oklahoma City by Andrew Gumbel and Roger G.

Scott sits down with Antiwar.com news editor Dave DeCamp to discuss the Russian air strikes that hit targets across Ukraine earlier today. The two give some context to the strikes by examining the series of events that may have led to this escalation — including the Ukrainian bombing of a vital Crimean bridge and the assignment of a new Russian general to run the air campaign in Ukraine.

The two give some context to the strikes by examining the series of events that may have led to this escalation — including the Ukrainian bombing of a vital Crimean bridge and the assignment of a new Russian general to run the air campaign in Ukraine. Both agree that this attack represents a new phase in the war and reflect on how earlier negotiations would have resulted in fewer losses for Ukraine in territory, resources and lives. <br /> <br /> Discussed on the show:<br /> <br /> “Biden calls the ‘prospect of Armageddon’ the highest since the Cuban missile crisis” (New York Times)<br /> “The CIA Thought Putin Would Quickly Conquer Ukraine. Why Did They Get It So Wrong?” (The Intercept)<br /> Zelensky’s “I am not some loser” moment<br /> “Zelensky Calls for NATO to Launch Preemptive Strike on Russia” (Antiwar.com)<br /> antiwar.com/donate <br /> <br /> Dave DeCamp is the news editor of Antiwar.com and the host of Antiwar News with Dave DeCamp.

Macgregor has been working hard to keep track of what’s actually happening on the ground, and the result is a very different narrative than what you’d find in most media outlets. Despite a very public “defeat” in northeastern Ukraine, Macgregor is convinced the Russians are dominating this war.

Scott talks with Philip Weiss about Shireen Abu Akleh, the Palestinian-American journalist slain by Israeli soldiers back in May. Likely because of her profession, the media has taken an unusually honest look at the events leading up to Abu Akleh’s death. Though it was always clear that she was unjustifiably killed by an Israeli sniper, further investigations have only made the IDF look worse. Weiss details what we now know, and lays out how the Israeli and American governments have responded.  Discussed on the show: Enough Already by Scott Horton The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt “Israelis justify killing of Shireen Abu Akleh — and Biden aides echo the talking points” (Mondoweiss) “Israel’s denial of accountability for Abu Akleh killing may require cutoff of aid — Leahy” (Mondoweiss) Philip Weiss is the long-time editor of Mondoweiss.net.

Scott talks with journalist Michael Tracey about the politics behind America’s foreign policy. Tracey recently attended a conference put on by the America First Policy Institute. Many Trump-friendly right-wing populists have defined their foreign policy philosophy as being “America First” with mixed understandings of the historical context behind that phrase. In many ways, this camp has represented a shift away from foreign interventionism within the American Right, at least concerning the Middle East and Europe. However, at the conference, Tracey found mostly establishment Republicans spewing hawkish nonsense. He talks with Scott about how, in many ways, the Trump Presidency brought about all the downsides of having a President willing to stand up to the war machine but with none of the upsides.  Discussed on the show: “America First Hawks Admit US Weapons in Ukraine are Plunging Down a Black Hole” (Substack) “Transcript: Donald Trump Expounds on His Foreign Policy Views” (New York Times) Reclaiming the American Right by Justin Raimondo  America First Policy Institute “Guided by British special forces, Ukraine is escalating the 'deep battlespace' fight against Russia” (Washington Examiner) “Newt Gingrich's "outsider" act” (Salon) “Tea Party welcomes Newt to New York” (Salon) “Democrats and Republicans Pretend They Have Massive, Unbridgeable Differences So They Can Unite Seamlessly on War” (Substack) “A Review of NATO’s War over Kosovo” (Chomsky.info) Michael Tracey is a New York-based journalist.

Scott was joined by Trita Parsi to discuss JCPOA negotiations on yesterday’s Antiwar Radio show. Parsi recently published a piece in Foreign Affairs arguing that the U.S. should return to the deal and that the current negotiations are the final chance to reach an agreement. He observes that even if we don’t care at all about the well-being of the Iranian people, staying out of the deal is costing American taxpayers and businesses. Scott and Parsi examine the common arguments against the deal and show how they all fall apart upon closer examination. They conclude that the real reason hawks oppose the JCPOA is that it takes away their favorite excuse for war in the middle east. Parsi argues that everyone who actually wants peace should support reentrance into the deal and institutionalized communication between Washington and Tehran. Discussed on the show: “Last Chance For America and Iran” (Foreign Affairs) Treacherous Alliance by Trita Parsi Trita Parsi is the Executive Vice President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and the author of Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy.

Scott speaks with Hunter DeRensis about the legacy of Liz Cheney. Although the Wyoming Congresswoman recently lost her primary, she seems determined to take a shot at national office. But even if we’re not done with her yet, it’s still worth taking a look back at how terrible she’s been throughout her career. Scott and DeRensis explore some of her worst episodes: things like throwing her sister under the bus on gay marriage, aggressively defending torture, telling McCain to shut up about torture, labeling Guantanamo detainee lawyers as members of Al Qaeda, trying to use a War Powers resolution to keep U.S. forces in Afghanistan last year and more.  Discussed on the show: “Loser Liz Cheney: We knew ye, and that was the problem” (Responsible Statecraft) “The ‘explosive’ Russian bounty story is so far, a dud” (Responsible Statecraft) Willie Geist’s “I love Dick Cheney?” moment on MSNBC VP Cheney’s Speech at VFW 103rd National Convention Hunter DeRensis is an editor at the Libertarian Institute, a former senior reporter at The National Interest, and a regular contributor to The American Conservative.

Scott interviews writer and State Department veteran Peter Van Buren about Taiwan. Van Buren is sticking with his assessment that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan will not happen because there’s too much money to be lost if trade between China, Taiwan and the U.S. takes a hit. However, he does fault the American government for doing its best to escalate the conflict. In this interview, he talks with Scott about Pelosi’s visit, the early history of the Taiwan conflict, China’s current navy, the narrative that China is already waging economic war on the U.S. and more.  Discussed on the show: “How Does Asia Feel About Nancy Pelosi?” (The American Conservative) “Nancy's Pointless Trip to Taiwan” (The American Conservative) “Strategic Ambiguity Works” (The American Conservative) China’s White Paper on Taiwan American Factory (IMDb) “Why Bombs Made in America Have Been Killing Civilians in Yemen” (New York Times) “China: From Death Camp to Civilization” (LewRockwell.com) Peter Van Buren worked for 24 years at the Department of State including a year in Iraq.

8/19/22 Shane McCarver Debunks Petraeus’s Lies in the Atlantic https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/8-19-22-shane-mccarver-debunks-petraeuss-lies-in-the-atlantic/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=8-19-22-shane-mccarver-debunks-petraeuss-lies-in-the-atlantic Tue, 23 Aug 2022 21:25:47 +0000 https://libertarianinstitute.org/?p=247814  Download Episode. Scott talks with Shane McCarver about an article he published last week at Antiwar.com challenging the wild assertions David Petraeus made in his Atlantic article earlier this month. Despite its length, Petraeus makes almost no concrete claims in his piece. Instead, he spends 10,000 words to make vague notions about grit and commitment that conveniently protect him from blame. One of the few specific arguments he does make, however, is that the U.S. should have supplied the Afghan National Army with more Russian-made MI-17 helicopters. McCarver was a soldier in Afghanistan working on this exact task up until the collapse of the ANA last summer. He explains to Scott why Petraeus’s argument that more helicopters could have prevented the Taliban’s victory is absurd.  Discussed on the show: “In Rebuke of the Dishonorable David Petraeus” (Antiwar.com) “Afghanistan Did Not Have To Turn Out This Way” (The Atlantic) Shane McCarver was a soldier in the United States army from 2013-2017. He worked as a logistics analyst on the DOD contract maintaining the MI-17 helicopters and the PC-12 fixed wing aircraft of the Afghan Air Force and Afghan Army Special Mission Wing from November 2018 until July 2021. He has since found honest work as a shipping coordinator for a manufacturer in Newport, New Hampshire.

Scott talks with Daniel Davis about David Petraeus's latest attempt to rewrite the history of the war in Afghanistan. Davis knows firsthand how the war actually played out back when Petraeus was in charge because his job required him to travel all over the country. The mismatch between what he witnessed and how it was all being presented to the American people convinced him to break rank and go public. In this interview, he debunks the claim that the war in Afghanistan could have been won, and he rips the media for continuing to listen to men like Petraeus, whose history of lying about the war is not even controversial. Discussed on the show: “David Petraeus Is Wrong” (19fortyfive) “Go Big or Go Deep” — Davis’s 2009 Report Blunt Vietnam Vet Marine Tells You Exactly What Happened To Him “The Afghanistan Papers” (Washington Post) “Afghanistan Did Not Have to Turn Out This Way” (The Atlantic) Daniel Davis did multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan during his time in the army.

Dan McKnight of Bring Our Troops Home is back to give an update on the movement to pass Defend the Guard Legislation. Defend the Guard aims to prohibit the Federal Government from deploying National Guard troops to foreign combat operations without a formal declaration of war. The movement backing these bills is led by veterans of the Terror Wars who just want lawmakers to respect the oath they all swore to the Constitution. McKnight gives an update on the effort and explains how you can help out. They then discuss the drone strike in Kabul two weeks ago that allegedly killed Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri. If true, McKnight says the last genuine justification for a War on Terror is gone.  Discussed on the show: Defend the Guard Bring Our Troops Home Ten Seven Club Leadership Class Kill Bin Laden by Dalton Fury (Thomas Greer) “This Air Force commando called in 688,000 pounds of bombs in one battle” (Task & Purpose) Pat McGeehan for House of Delegates  Dan McKnight is the founder and Chairman of Idahoans to Bring Our Troops Home.

Scott talked with author Grant F. Smith about his new podcast detailing the founding of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. They also discuss how AIPAC has recently been getting more involved in U.S. elections. While some have framed this as an attempt for the ‘politically conservative’ organization to target progressive candidates, Smith argues politics has little to do with it. All that matters to AIPAC is the degree to which any given candidate supports sending money to Israel.    Discussed on the show: How Israel Made AIPAC Podcast Grant F. Smith is the author of a number of books including Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America, Divert!, and most recently The Israel Lobby Enters State Government: Rise of the Virginia Israel Advisory Board.

Scott interviews David Pyne about the articles he wrote on the war in Ukraine that landed him on the Ukrainian regime's blacklist. Earlier this year, Pyne wrote a piece that contained a fifteen-point plan to stop the bloodshed and pull all Russian troops out of Ukraine. But because he argued Zelensky should concede on at least some of Putin’s demands, he was criticized as a propagandist on the Kremlin’s payroll and landed on the Ukrainian blacklist. Scott and Pyne go through his proposal and discuss the historical context behind this strange moment of hypocritical idealism and censorship in our foreign policy.  Discussed on the show: “Response to Ukrainian Government Decision to Include me on a List of 28 High-Profile Americans Accused of Promoting Russian Propaganda Narratives” (Substack) “A Proposed Peace Plan to End the Russo-Ukrainian War” (Substack) “Amnesty International Says Ukraine’s Fighting Tactics Endanger Civilians” (Antiwar.com) George W.

7/28/22 Douglas Macgregor on NATO’s Doomed Strategy in Ukraine https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/7-28-22-douglas-macgregor-on-natos-doomed-strategy-in-ukraine/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=7-28-22-douglas-macgregor-on-natos-doomed-strategy-in-ukraine Sun, 31 Jul 2022 21:27:28 +0000 https://libertarianinstitute.org/?p=246467  Download Episode. This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott was joined by retired Col. Douglas Macgregor to discuss the ongoing war in Ukraine. Macgregor has been deeply critical of NATO’s reaction to the Russian invasion, which he calls impulsive. He says the leverage Russia holds over Europe’s energy supply is itself enough of a reason to avoid picking a fight. He predicts a painful winter for Europeans, especially Germans, as energy shortages threaten their access to heat. He then gets into some mistakes the Russians made such as the choice not to cut off gas supplies before turning to military action and, once the invasion had begun, not committing to hold captured territory permanently. While Scott and Macgregor agree that NATO’s intent is to fight until the last Ukrainian, Macgregor predicts that weak western economies will cause NATO’s support to dry up before Russian forces run out of steam.  Discussed on the show: “Worshipping Dead Horses” (The American Conservative) Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) is a senior fellow with The American Conservative, the former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, a decorated combat veteran, and the author of five books.

He then gets into some mistakes the Russians made such as the choice not to cut off gas supplies before turning to military action and, once the invasion had begun, not committing to hold captured territory permanently. While Scott and Macgregor agree that NATO’s intent is to fight until the last Ukrainian, Macgregor predicts that weak western economies will cause NATO’s support to dry up before Russian forces run out of steam. 

Discussed on the show:

Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) is a senior fellow with The American Conservative, the former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, a decorated combat veteran, and the author of five books.

7/25/22 Matt Taibbi on the Depravity of the Media and Liberal Interventionists https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/7-25-22-matt-taibbi-on-the-depravity-of-the-media-and-liberal-interventionists/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=7-25-22-matt-taibbi-on-the-depravity-of-the-media-and-liberal-interventionists Sat, 30 Jul 2022 20:29:04 +0000 https://libertarianinstitute.org/?p=246459  Download Episode. Scott interviews journalist Matt Taibbi about two articles he published at TK News. The first examines the role the New York Times plays in defining the boundaries of acceptable discourse in our country. Taibbi draws a comparison to the role of newspapers in the Soviet Union and points to multiple examples from the last few years of U.S. outlets doing the same thing. They then focus in on foreign policy, where they reflect on how the military and interventionists in both media and government went through a transformation after the Bush Presidency. By rebranding themselves as humanitarian interventionists and framing Obama as their leader, they were able to dismantle the antiwar left of the Bush years. Now we find ourselves in a moment where many on the right are taking a more anti-interventionist stance. Scott and Taibbi mull over whether this will, or can, change American foreign policy going forward.  Discussed on the show: “The New Kremlinology: Reading the New York Times” (TK News) Scott’s Debate with Cathy Young “Putin Misunderstands History. So, Unfortunately, Does the U.S.” (Bloomberg) “The Great American Military Rebrand” (TK News) The End of History and the Last Man by Francis Fukuyama Bring Our Troops Home Defend the Guard Matt Taibbi is a journalist, author and political commentator.

Scott talks with Cato Institute Senior Fellow Doug Bandow about an article he wrote recently for The American Conservative. Bandow gives his take on Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia. He thinks the Saudis were purposefully disrespectful to the U.S. President and that Biden just took it. Bandow explains the ways Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been changing how Saudi Arabia oppresses its people — rolling back religious tyranny while expanding political tyranny. Finally, Scott and Bandow take a step back and examine the Biden Administration’s approach to the entire Middle East region, which Bandow says is really just a continuation of Trump’s policies.  Discussed on the show: “Joe Biden Grovels to the Saudis” (The American Conservative) “Biden says he confronted Saudis directly on Khashoggi” (The Washington Post) Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and a regular contributor at Forbes Magazine, the National Interest, Antiwar.com, and elsewhere.

Bandow gives his take on Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia. He thinks the Saudis were purposefully disrespectful to the U.S. President and that Biden just took it. Bandow explains the ways Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been changing how Saudi Arabia oppresses its people — rolling back religious tyranny while expanding political tyranny. Finally, Scott and Bandow take a step back and examine the Biden Administration’s approach to the entire Middle East region, which Bandow says is really just a continuation of Trump’s policies. <br /> <br /> Discussed on the show:<br /> <br /> “Joe Biden Grovels to the Saudis” (The American Conservative)<br /> “Biden says he confronted Saudis directly on Khashoggi” (The Washington Post)<br /> <br /> Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and a regular contributor at Forbes Magazine, the National Interest, Antiwar.com, and elsewhere.

This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott is joined by Patrick MacFarlane to discuss the narrative that China is conducting a genocide against the Uyghurs of Xinjiang, its westernmost region. The narrative has become prominent over the past few years, especially with anti-China hawks. But MacFarlane shows that most of the “evidence” of genocide can be traced back to a German anthropologist named Adrian Zenz. Scott and MacFarlane dig into some of the obvious problems with Zenz’s work and put the U.S. Government’s connection to the Uyghurs in context.  Discussed on the show: “Credibility and the ‘Xinjiang Police Files’” (Libertarian Institute) “The Red Line and the Rat Line” (London Review of Books) Patrick MacFarlane is the Justin Raimondo Fellow at the Libertarian Institute where he advocates a noninterventionist foreign policy.

Scott is joined by CIA officer turned whistleblower turned political commentator John Kiriakou to discuss the trial of Joshua Schulte, the man accused of leaking the CIA’s Vault 7 program to Wikileaks. Schulte denies being involved in the leak. His next trial is fast approaching. Kiriakou explains how the Justice Department also accused Schulte of having child pornography on his computer, although they walked it back when the judge requested they actually press charges. Scott and Kiriakou discuss past cases where the U.S. government weaponized false allegations of sexual crimes against whistleblowers. They then get into a discussion about former CIA officer Robert Grenier who Kiriakou worked with. He talks about their falling out. And any discussion of Robert Grenier is inevitably going to include Bin Laden’s escape into Pakistan at Tora Bora in December of 2001. Scott goes through some of the best books on the topic and Kiriakou gives his account of that critical time period from inside the Agency.  Discussed on the show: “A Whistleblower’s Agony” (Scheer Post) Kiriakou’s books  @innercitypress on Twitter Robert Grenier’s post-Jan 6th interview on NPR 88 Days to Kandahar by Robert Grenier Jawbreaker by Gary Berntsen Kill Bin Laden by Dalton Fury/Thomas Greer “This Air Force commando called in 688,000 pounds of bombs in one battle” (Task & Purpose) Bush at War by Bob Woodward John Kiriakou is a former CIA officer and author of The Convenient Terrorist: Two Whistleblowers’ Stories of Torture, Terror, Secret Wars, and CIA Lies and Doing Time Like A Spy.

7/1/22 Shireen Al-Adeimi: The Ceasefire in Yemen is Not Enough https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/7-1-22-shireen-al-adeimi-the-ceasefire-in-yemen-is-not-enough/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=7-1-22-shireen-al-adeimi-the-ceasefire-in-yemen-is-not-enough Sun, 03 Jul 2022 15:26:22 +0000 https://libertarianinstitute.org/?p=245209  Download Episode. Scott is joined by Shireen Al-Adeimi to discuss the war in Yemen. They talk about the War Powers Resolution in Congress and the Ramadan ceasefire, which is holding for now. Al-Adeimi points out that the Saudis dropping their support for former President Hadi was not actually a step towards peace. Instead, they turned to a “council” made up of rival warlords who appear destined to use violence in their disputes rather than diplomacy. But, she points out, the Saudis cannot exert any real control over Yemen without full military support from the United States. That defines a clear path for bringing this bloody period of foreign intervention in Yemen to an end.  Discussed on the show: “Truce or Not, Congress Must Urgently Bring About a Real End to the War on Yemen” (In These Times) 833-STOPWAR Use this script if you are not sure what to say Shireen Al-Adeimi is an assistant professor of Education at Michigan State.

Scott interviews Max Blumenthal about what’s been happening between Paul Mason and The Grayzone. Mason is a British Trotskyist turned Neocon who never stopped identifying with the left. He has built up a reputation in British media as a leftist while building relationships with British intelligence officials. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Mason decided to wage an all-out war on any media establishments that showed even a hint of skepticism towards the pro-NATO narrative of the war. The Grayzone, where Blumenthal works, was able to obtain emails revealing Masons coordinating with British officials as he planned his offensive against the publication. Scott and Blumenthal also discuss MI6’s involvement with Brexit and the situation with Julian Assange.

Scott interviewed British journalist Tom Secker about the Pentagon’s role in producing Top Gun: Maverick. The Department of Defense has an entire office set up to work with Hollywood. They give producers access to some military personnel as well as equipment in exchange for the final say over the script. Secker has gone through many documents over the years to find exactly what the military has changed in popular films. But with the Top Gun movies, the relationship is on a whole other level. Secker lays out the history of the first film, the sequel that got scrapped after the Pentagon pulled out in the 90s, and the eventual production of Top Gun: Maverick. Both Scott and Secker point out that they don’t have a problem with action movies like this being made, just that the military hijacks film productions in order to boost its reputation far beyond what it deserves.  Discussed on the show: “Documents Reveal How Pentagon Shaped ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Into A Recruitment And PR Vehicle” (ShadowProof) “Why does the Pentagon give a helping hand to films like ‘Top Gun’?” (Los Angeles Times) Scott’s previous interview with Secker Tom Secker is a British-based journalist, author, and podcaster specializing in the security services, Hollywood, propaganda, censorship and the history of terrorism.

Scott is joined by Mark Thornton, Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute, to discuss an article he wrote recently on the current housing bubble.

Khan’s government announced in June of 2021 that Pakistan would no longer host any American military bases. Then, earlier this year, Khan was forced out by a vote of no confidence. He immediately turned around and blamed the United States, claiming his removal was a U.S. orchestrated coup. His claims garnered popularity in Pakistan. Snider decided to look into Khan’s theories. He shares what he’s found with Scott.   <br /> <br /> Discussed on the show:<br /> <br /> “Why Imran Khan’s coup theory is so popular in Pakistan” (Responsible Statecraft)<br /> <br /> Ted Snider has a graduate degree in philosophy and writes on analyzing patterns in U.S. foreign policy and history. He is a regular writer for Truthout, MondoWeiss and antiwar.com.<br /> <br /> This episode of the Scott Horton Show is sponsored by: The War State and Why The Vietnam War?, by Mike Swanson; Tom Woods’ Liberty Classroom; ExpandDesigns.com/Scott; EasyShip; Free Range Feeder; Thc Hemp Spot; Green Mill Supercritical; Bug-A-Salt and Listen and Think Audio.<br /> <br /> Shop Libertarian Institute merch or donate to the show through Patreon, PayPal or Bitcoin: 1DZBZNJrxUhQhEzgDh7k8JXHXRjYu5tZiG.
