‘Brain Dead’ NATO At 70 – Time To Pull The Plug?

French president Macron caused a stir last month by stating that NATO is suffering from brain death. At this week’s NATO summit marking 70 years of the Alliance, Trump and Macron are clashing. Why is it so hard for NATO to find a purpose? Is this a sign that finally, 30 years after the Cold War, it’s time to end the anti-Soviet alliance?

LAST WEEK: Help support the Liberty Report this #GivingTuesday and we’ll send you a copy of Ron Paul’s new mini-book on America’s “Exceptional” Bankruptcy! For $50 we’ll send you the book as a gift. For a donation of $100 or more, Ron Paul will sign it! Act today – it’s a limited time offer: http://www.RonPaulInstitute.org/support

NATO was good for it's time, it was build for Defense, then the Clinton's used it for Offence , now nobody want to support a military for America to use for it's own wars which it has become. Co-op Military does not work, America should get out and let the EU decide if they wish to fund it or scrap it.It's a Eu military anyways.

The USA has been overly charitable for far too long. We need to reign in all government spending here in the US., lessen our national debt, and stop policing the entire globe. This spending is the people's tax dollars, and the fiduciary responsibility has been through out the window by politicians and government workers. DRAIN THE SWAMP includes the thievery of worldwide governments, bankers and industrialists.

Can we start labeling this nonsense appropriately? Its not terrorism…its false flag terrorism. Its not climate change…its false flag climate crisis. Its not fake news…its psychological warfare. Its not security…its surveillance. Its not… debating nonsensical govt policies…its legitimizing an illegitimate criminal enterprise. You get the idea yet?

As long as NATO protects us from Turkey and its neo-Ottoman schemes, I'm fine investing 2 % of GDP in it.

Way past time! April 4, 2019 Video: “NATO-EXIT”

70 years ago NATO was born. In April 1949, The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) established what was designated as the doctrine of “Collective Security” under Art. 5 of the Washington Treaty.

JANUARY 15, 2019 Top 10 Reasons Not to Love NATO

The New York Times loves NATO, but should you? Judging by comments in social media and the real world, millions of people in the United States have gone from having little or no opinion on NATO, or from opposing NATO as the world’s biggest military force responsible for disastrous wars in places like Afghanistan (for Democrats) or Libya (for Republicans), to believing NATO to be a tremendous force for good in the world.

Hmm… It does seem like the good Dr. Paul doesn't understand the threat from Islam. This is an ideological enemy of a magnitude entirely like Soviet Communism.

The Fed represents the Crown and Bank of England. Such a scam! Americans are then conscripted as a mercenary force to do the Crowns bidding – divide and conquer with perpetual wars and world wars for which not only are Americans conscripted but they are tax burdened to pay for all these foreign wars out of the U.S. Treasury and America's natural resources. These are not America's wars – they are Crown wars by design. There is no greater evil in the world today than this!

"…it sounds like Piglet in Winnie the Pooh, frightened of everything… terrorism; piracy; ethnic violence; inadequate economic reform; threats to energy supplies; arms proliferation; drug trafficking; cyber attacks; laser weapons; electronic warfare; health risks; climate change; even undefined 'instability.'" What's next human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria?

NATO is needed so that the europeans can be forced to buy US-made weapons. Pay up your "fair" share says tr-dumb-p.

Why don’t all nations have a NATO like coalition that actually moves around the world doing positive work like drilling wells for impoverished countries and bringing education and health care. Noooo , we need to continue finding wars and boogie men for the Industrial Military Complex that destroy humanity and help steal resources of other nations for corporate elitist.

When the government is spying on it's own citizens it is because the government views it's citizens as a future threat or as enemies ! The multi layered " security " system is the underbelly of a fascist state !

The Pentagon’s Destruction of the Bill of Rights It is supremely ironic that Pentagon officials take an oath to support and defend the Constitution because they intentionally destroyed the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution when they set up their “judicial” system at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In fact, the very reason the Pentagon established its system in Cuba, rather than the United States, was to circumvent and avoid the provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

U.S.—A fun new "Greta on the Shelf" doll will watch you every day and fly back to the UN each night to report your climate sins to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The doll is equipped with eye sensors programmed to detect activities that are harmful to the environment. "Greta sees you when you're sleeping, she knows when you drive your SUV to the store instead of taking public transportation," the manufacturer said. "She knows if you've been bad or carbon-neutral, so be carbon-neutral for goodness' sake!" One couple in Portland proudly displayed their new doll and lectured their… Read more »

Trump never hated NATO. His sharp criticism of it was to scare its members to pay what the promise.

No hoping required. Every single US citizen that pays half a bit of attention doesn't trust ANY branch of the government to have their best interest in mind, not even as a secondary intent. Well, I guess most of the Forest Svc is ok…

I will donate again today to this station. Not because I am Libertarian cause I am not. Not because you are anti nuclear weapons or anti war; at best you are luke warm on those issues. You folks do voice some common sense issues on war & nuclear weapons. Your supporting killing and slaughtering all my Lefty friends in Oregon is concerning, you and that Civil War mongering Lew Debs.

NATO wants to put everyone on the planet into NATO run housing, and take away all your civil liberties. Only the very wealthy will head up NATO. Then the world will kill everyone on the planet.

one of the worst places to be is with people that without question are pro-NATO, pro-empire, republicans that think they are saints and think democrats are sinners… the 20th century is one of the bloodiest centuries in all of history… if peace is held together with force it is not peace at all… bringing troops home and trading with nations is a real way to put the world once again on the road to peace & prosperity. Thanks to Dr. Paul for helping us understand the principle of non-intervention.
