Allow leftist and antiwar perspectives to be voiced on western mainstream media.It will never happen because RT is not the real enemy. Leftists and antiwar activists are the real enemy....

they have no real problem with RT. The only people the plutocrat-owned media corporations have ever had a problem with are those who oppose plutocratic interests, be they oligarchy or war profiteering or ecocidal fossil fuel agendas.

Ms. Johnstone's site has been hacked. You can also find this article at Zero Hedge here:javascript:nicTemp();

We know the US government wants to have virtually full control the flow of information to Americans, and the shutting of RT is only one peg in its strategy.

...agreed...

..not entirely sure I think it's all for "the plutocrats" though...the "plutocrats" are not all the same or think exactly alike...

The entire US machinery of governance has incriminated itself and done so to an extreme degree -- that in itself provides fuel for a non-ending war against truth...

Failure of the "people" of the US to force genuine discovery process after the events of September 11, 2001 left the ruling elites with the challenge to extend that "failure" in perpetuity....and they are succeeding -- so far...

But what that also means is that any trace of "legitimacy" is gone...by definition. -- The "citizenry" hasn't been able to internalize that though, but the elites are acutely aware...

Interesting though, isn't it -- this is how the United States wanted to start the Third Millennium...way to go!

RT is the only place you can go to get news outside of Washington DC, and there's a LOT of it.

I like the way caitlin came at the reason RT is attacked. The attack is not against RT, it is against leftists and antiwar activists. The Director of National Intelligence report makes it look like RT is the problem. That is an interestingly devious way to get many including those on the left against RT because it is ... "RUSSIAN."

Today I watched the movie TRUMBO (2015), since it was on a free-preview from STARZ. Kudos to STARZ for offering it, as well as CASINO JACK (2010), the story of Jack Abramoff.

It is a must see for anyone who is not familiar with the Joe McCarthy Era, which ended only after JFK came into office. Dalton Trumbo is an American hero, if for no other reason than his courageous stand against Power, for Truth.

Today we are seeing a virtual repeat of this demoralizing and frightening history. I am more afraid of this than nuclear war.

I just watched a few clips about Trumbo because of your reference. I need to see that movie and hope I do. I had never heard of him. I can tell he was a great and important person from the little I have seen.

I'll have to look for Trumbo on Starz. It looks wonderful from the trailer.


Thanks.

There are a lot of clips on youtube about Trumbo.

Not that it matters but may I ask a simple question? What is Starz?

Starz in a pay-TV movie channel, in competition with HBO, Showtime, etc.

The week long freebee was offered on Frontier, our TV, internet and phone provider.

I had an email from Hungary stating that he could only access Oen via a virtual private network. That may happen here for RT. The them are terrified of the truth, and right now RT is the only global network that provides that access.

If you have not watched Lee Camp's political comedy show on RT, Redacted Tonight, his opening line is "Welcome to Redacted Tonight, the program where Americans talking about America from inside America are classified as foreign agents".

site is back up. I did not see a subscription option, but she is taking donations from Patreon, which I assume gets you on her mailing list. It can be a dollar a month, as it is a donation.

Site is back up, with a related article to Caitlin Johnstone and "Silence Forever"

On cognitive dissonance and Julian Assange:

"If our institutions were as trustworthy and just as we pretend they are, there would be no such phenomenon as Julian Assange".

"These fairytales we mutter to ourselves in order to keep reality at bay must come to an end. We are not children anymore. The veils of lies and wishful thinking must be torn down and reality must be met on its terms. If you want the world to change, you have to see it for what it is otherwise you are merely impotently shrieking at your own illusory nightmares".

"Tear down the veils of cognitive dissonance and you will see that not only is Julian Assange living proof that things are not as advertised, but that his liberation is one of the first steps we must take towards our own liberation from the chains we woke up to find ourselves in".

People Lie To Themselves About Julian Assange To Justify His Persecution
