Who and What is RT News. Video by JBS.

If you've ever been to a Ron Paul or Campaign for Liberty event, you have probably seen a table manned by the John Birch Society, who has been putting out educational videos and material for decades. While Ron Paul is not a member himself, he did speak at their 50th anniversary banquet and gave them much praise.

The following is a new JBS video discussing RT News.


Art gives them credit for objectively covering Ron Paul, and also articulates some concerns that I concluded for myself some time ago, (I cancelled my RT subscription on youtube roughly a year ago.) I watch them when they have Ron Paul on, or if the piece is relevant to the campaign, and in those cases I usually link to it from here.

So check it out, be informed, and make up your own mind.

Of course RT is biased. They

Of course RT is biased. They always portrait Russia as the good guy and the USA as the warmonger. They enjoy pointing out everything bad about the US government, but in this they are doing us a great service. They expose a lot of things the government is doing that is unconstitutional and evil. The corporate owned us media is guilty of helping the US government keep all this stuff secret. They gave Ron Paul coverage when the US media blacked him out. Can you blame them for promoting a candidate who wants to stop invading and occupying countries close to their border. I look at the RT every day but I always keep in mind that they are promoting their agenda just like the US media is promoting theirs. If all I can get is propaganda I would at least like to here both sides give their version of events.

Is it all about subversion?

It's Russian propaganda, but

It's Russian propaganda, but only really obviously in the reports about Russia. They remain a lot more politically unbiased than some US networks and the BBC (British leftist propaganda channel) - remember that the current ruling party in Russia is quite fiscally conservative, hence why Russia has such a low flat income tax.

I lived in Europe for a while and RT

was the only news channel my family got in English. That was before I ever heard of Ron Paul. RT was a vicious, Left-wing, anti-American news network then and they still are today. Any time they give Libertarians coverage, it's for their own agenda. They make Fox news and MSNBC look objective. If you go back and look at the propaganda the SOviet Union put out about America in the fifties, you'll find it's the same stuff RT puts out today.

The first B in BBC isn't for Benevolent

And exactly why do they stand against communism but use CNN as the foil in their comparative narrative?

Nice heads up to the younger crowd here about RT, but he isn't exactly stressing the support for Liberty first. JBS would use executive order and security services for their own end.

What we need is the younger crowd to pick up Ayn Rand and learn the nature of misguided good intentions. IF you don't know why the government can't help people, you will one day give your freedom away.

I like JBS, but sometimes they take the old

party line, by instoking the Communist fear. I'm still up in the air on Putin. I know he ran most of the Rothschild Zionist Oligarchs and Bankster's out of his country, along with most of the Russian(Jewish) Mob, and has restored Christianity back in Russia. They are also, trying to prevent more wars in the Middle East, because they know the whole region could easily blow up into WWIII. So, the question should be, are we being manipulated about his tactics? He has to take some control in the media, because the Zionist world media control agents will undermine the Russian people, just as they do in America.
Here is the first of four videos from a speech he gave in 2007 in Munich, where he exposes the NWO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hr5GxN3C8uw&feature=player_em...!
Also, one of the visions made by reknown prophet, Edgar Casey in the late 30's, about future Russia "[Through Russia], comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism -- no! But freedom -- freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world ...for changes are coming, this may be sure -- an evolution or revolution in the ideas of religious thought. The basis of it for the world will eventually come out of Russia. Not communism, no! But rather that which is the basis of the same as the Christ taught -- his kind of communism."

I am thinking Christ taught

Liberty and anything given is to be giving voluntarily out of a cheerful heart. Communism is not Charity. Have you seen the video of the Russians on the BRICS announcement. They sure don't look cheerful. Old communism, new communism, look at the "Lead the Opposition" post below...and the summary of Hegelian Dialectic. I wonder, are you thinking just what they want you to think?

I wonder why Ron Paul

isn't a member of the John Birch Society?

Probably because he knows

JBS is a "secret society" and the media would milk this to no ends, just like they did with his newsletters. They would find out somehow if Dr. Paul were to join JBS.
Amerika's MSM would have a field day if he joined, make him look like some kind of "weirdo" or a "devil" or "fear monger" you name it.
China is the biggest communist country and why are we doing business with them? JBS should be more worried about what "OUR" own government is doing, rather than preparing for some Russian invasion.
Since the breakup of U.S.S.R. there has been tens of thousands of former soviet republic citizens immigrate to U.S.A., Canada, Australia, etc. If they were to nuke Amerika now, they'd be killing a lot of there own (former) citizens.
When RT is giving coverage to Dr. Paul while CNN, FOX, and the rest of the American media is completely ignoring him, I can't help but feel like JBS is barking up the wrong tree.
When Gorbachev was the "Man" in Russia, he was the evil mastermind, Now it's Putin...there will always be a "bad guy" out there for Birchers.
I have walked the streets of one former soviet republic with a bottle of beer in hand, passed a group of policemen going the opposite direction. They did not throw me to the ground with the "cuff him and stuff him" mentality I would have experienced here in USSA. They just walked right past me minding their own business.
Nowadays the so-called communists are more "capitalistic" than the so-called "freedumb" loving Amerikans.
Lately, I'm beginning to feel like Russia and America have passed each other going in opposite directions, and nobody noticed. They seem to have more freedoms while at the same time we've lost a lot, the beer is one example. Sad, but true.


I wonder why I made that comment back in April. It sure is a stupid one. No telling what I was thinking. I was new to this Liberty stuff...still am relatively speaking. That being said, I am still suspicious of RT.

fireant's picture

Note his emphasis on LOCAL police.

He says it better than I could. It is vital to get the feds out of local police business and funding; vital for liberty.

Undo what Wilson did

Lead the Opposition...

That is what the enemy wants to do. Let there be opposition, but let me lead it. Let there be a democratic vote, but let me count it. Let there be a voice for Liberty, but let me control it. The enemy finds an organization and takes it over from within.

Think of all the folks who THINK fox news is fair and balanced and don't even realize Ron Paul is a viable candidate. Why, because they were sick and tired of all the biased news and jumped on the band wagon of Fox news thinking it to be a conservative fair & balanced news outlet and now they believe whatever they are told by Fox. They have been given Santorum as the conservative candidate instead of the true fighter for our Liberty and our Republic, Ron Paul.

Think of how the Tea Party has been hijacked...

Why are we having to take the Rupublican Party back? Because some very bad people have taken it over. So, beware of RT. Just because they seem to be OK today doesn't mean they are not taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back all the way to the front of the Liberty movement.

Another term is

Hegelian Dialectic.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

I'm Looking it Up

wikipedia: Hegelian dialectic, usually presented in a threefold manner, was stated by Heinrich Moritz Chalybäus as comprising three dialectical stages of development: a thesis, giving rise to its reaction, an antithesis, which contradicts or negates the thesis, and the tension between the two being resolved by means of a synthesis.

My conclusion: So synthesis is the goal. The opposistion's synthesis...

I had a lot of fun watching

I had a lot of fun watching the Russian elections on RT. Absurd situational comedy at it's very finest!! The western commentators analyzing the result (hint: Putin wins), grasping at miniscule straws of legitimacy was some of the most awkward television I've seen in my life.

They put some good programs on, just like Al Jazeera, or just like I enjoy The Rachel Maddow show.. just keep in mind who pays the bills. With US cable it's a bunch of companies, with RT it's the Kremlin and Putin's KGB-friends. The closer they get to home, the thicker the lies get basically.

I Watch China Central Television

To balance it out! ;-)

LOL~ We like balance

It sounds like a lot of unjust fear at this stage. From an article I heard on BBC Radio News, RT was taking BBC's news model and trying to duplicate it. Granted this article was about 6 months ago, but I could see Russia trying to get into mainstream through news. But lets face it, how is our MSM news networks any different than his current fears? Telling us stuff to believe so they can swing our opinion?

LOL! Thx for the link.

Interesting! Thx for the link. I don't think there is a balance to be found no matter what network one chooses to watch. Imho, they all have an agenda.


It would be irrational to expect ANY network to be free of agenda. Personally, I always look for the rational, that supports what I believe to be right action regarding the rights and well being of the individual human being. I figure that will usually lead us in the direction of greater freedom as well as prosperity.

Nothing comes to those who wait.
