Lee Camp of RT's Redacted Tonight does an excellent job of explaining global issues in terms a teenager can understand. And with humor. Here he gives us the history of US wars for the 'petro-dollar' , that is US dollar domination. Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen - with Iran, which as of today is trading oil in euros - next on the agenda. Which countries are still not part of the BIS central banking system?  answer: China, Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea. In other words, the countries that cannot be enslaved by western bankers and therefore are scheduled for US bombing. This discussion is in his opening monolgue, so you only have to watch the first five minutes. By the way, it's also hilariously funny.   click here

The US Ministry of Truth can come up with a thousand bogus reasons for invading other countries. The best we can hope is that if the general public is permitted to understand the real impetus behind all of these wars, the cat will be out of the bag and they will no longer be able to pull off the charade. Nicki Haley's popularity with the American public boggles the mind. I have never witnessed a more bellicose and blatantly dangerous liar in my lifetime. So yes, we have our work cut out for us.

If you want to hear what "Russia" has to say, there are a lot of Putin videos online. Oliver Stone did a lengthy interview with him. For all the times I have watched or listened to him, I find him quite credible. And very smart. And do that before you call me a "puppet'. That said, the credibility of the US is what I take great exception with as we are fed lies and propaganda daily. The worst being "Iraq has WMD's" despite our weapons inspector Scott Ritter and his team finding NONE...and that's before we attacked them. Assaud gasses his people!!! Three times this was claimed so we bombed them and all 3 reports were false.


The US should have a Ministry of Truth, but I don't see that happening..or, if it did, I would still research everything said. It takes a long time to be trusted again when it's discovered you've been lying a lot.

Oops! Just reread Lila's post! The US HAS a Ministry of Truth???? Well. The first thing that came to mind was, "put that on the hypocrisy list".

Ministry of Truth was, I believe, a department in George Orwell's England in his book, 1984.

Well!! As someone who tries to research stuff before I start writing, I googled "does the US have a Ministry of Truth"....interestingly, the article started out with Orwell (and yes, you were spot on) and a list of ministries. Apparently, Obama did sign a US Ministry of Truth into law but there was, indeed, an element of hypocrisy in the piece. What a surprise. P.S. I thoroughly like your articles and comments, as well as RT...I have to 'shut my ears' when my husband walks in and I have RT on...he's ex-Army Special Ops..go figure.

Exactly, and you have to be careful to speak only the truth and nothing but the truth. Honest, well meaning people like Leslie will tend to believe you no matter what.

It is a known truth that people judge others by themselves. An honest person has difficulty to appreciate the level of rottenness in others, like Leslie in Putin.

Her ascending credibility is distressing to say the least, The worst part of this is RT is Putin's "propaganda", every liberal I know firmly holds this dogma close and will never abandon their ignorance.

Even pointing out how refusing Lee's truth is ignorant, I'm immediately condemned as a Russian troll or bot.

I never would have thought I'd be battling with a former Duhbya hating anti war liberal trying to convince them they're still being lied to, but here I am, the sane one in the asylum.

It doesn't always work, but sometimes it helps to point out exactly who the anchors are on RT - Larry King, 25 years at CNN, Ed Schulz from MSNBC, Thom Hartmann, Jesse Ventura, Chris Hedges and the comedian, Lee Camp. all known Americans and none of them Russia lovers. Bart Chilton does a show on the stock market and Mike Papantonio does a show on lawsuits against abusive corporations in the US called America's lawyer. So what is so commie about those guys, eh? But all of them say the same - that they can say whatever they want on RT - they have never been edited, scripted or censored. It is, as I have pointed out in the past, the new home of the American Left. i.e., the real Left. The news headlines run every hour on the hour for 30 minutes. Those anchors are mostly Brits, and it usually airs from London rather than Washington. The only real program out of Moscow is called Worlds Aoart, an interview program where the hostess interviews westerners with cnn approved views and challenges them to defend them. interesting approach. I've convinced a few friends to watch it by saying, "it's not what you think. try it" and they end up watching it regularly. so worth the effort.

I think Sophie Co comes from Moscow as well. I could be wrong. But you've nailed their hypocrisy in calling RT a "foreign" anything.

I've been watching Lee for over half a year and anyone condemning him is willfully or otherwise ignorant. Or simply un-American.

I think just brainwashed. It has always been so that 20% of the population demands to know the truth and seeks it out. 20% demand to stay in a bubble and refuse to acknowledge any truth at all that does not fit their preconceived bias, and 40% are mutable. So we may be able to get 80% to wake up. I think we are already there with 911. It took 17 years however.

Brainwashed, yes. I found this yesterday..."Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry" by Mick Harrison, one of the attorneys (found it on YouTube) It's an independent group and will probably require citizen financial support. It really made me excited to think we could get the truth out...and the real victory would be if we could get out of the war business and maybe throw a few folk in jail....

I left out some helpful bio data - Jesse Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota, Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning foreign correspondent for the New York Times, Bart Chilton, former Commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in Chicago. Thom Hartmann who has had a nationally syndicated radio program in the United States since 2003. How does anyone consider these guys Russia sympathizers. They are at RT because MSM inside the US does not allow dissenting opinions to be voiced - ever - and so heavily censors their own reporters that one would be hard pressed to even call it news. If the so-called Left - i.e. the hillary left is so terrified of RT I think it's time for me to run yet another article spelling all of this out.

News headline: Just two days after being sworn in as Secretary of State - and 24 hours after Iran started trading oil in Euros - Pompeo flies to Saudi Arabia and calls for new sanctions against Iran.

breaking news: Netanyahu announces "significant speech about Iran" later today. following a meeting with bomb'em Pompeo. stock market tanking in response. Netanyahu is under indictment for corruption and Israelis have been protesting for his removal, but he hangs on to power - and threatens a violent escalation in Mideast war.

PS Netanyahu's record for lying to start illegal wars is about as shameful as it could be. I trust this will be yet another lie. The risk of global nuclear war has just increased badly.

Netanyahoo To Again Cry Wolf - But Something Bigger Is Up

click here

Update

That was lame. Netanyahoo just finished his show. He claimed that Israel got access to an Iranian archive of its former nuclear program dating from 1999 to 2003. In 2007 a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate found that Iran stopped all nuclear weapon research in 2003 after the U.S. had destroyed Iran's then arch-enemy Iraq. In 2011 the IAEA reported in detail of Iran's former "structured program". It agreed that it had stopped in 2003.

All that Netanyahoo now claims to have acquired is old and known stuff. He refers to an AMAD plan Iran had as if that was some new intelligence. But the IAEA documented AMAD and its development in 2011 (PDF, Annex, page 5). He uses the archive documents of known former programs to declare that Iran has cheated and is not trustworthy. He says that gives Trump reason to disavow the nuclear agreement the U.S. and others had signed with Iran. That is bullshit.

I had expected better from him. Some well forged documents or something more dramatic. This was just nonsense.

My feeling is that this was a diversion from an upcoming military(?) operation against Iran or its assets in Lebanon, Syria or Iraq.

The neocons are trying desperately to keep the regime change schedule as on track as possible using any excuse they can dream up. I only hope the Iranians with the help of Russia and China can keep these war hawks from doing their worst.
