A warning about RT from the John Birch Society

I know RT gives Ron Paul some fair media coverage, but keep in mind that it is a Russian outfit. I am not saying that RT is bad, but what I am saying is to continue to do your own research and come up with your own answers.

Not sure about all of the bashing of JBS

Bashing of JBS is something the leftists love to do. However, JBS y want very much what RP supporters want...strict adherence to the constitution. I have heard it all from progressives and Neocons about how they are all "racists" and anyone that joins them is a "nazi". That in itself is what drew me to research them. They seem to me at least a honest constitutionalist organization. The people criticizing them on here have fell victim to more brainwashing. Remember, the agenda from the communists is much stronger than "just msm". It is pervasive through schooling, literature, books, etc. The JBS is fighting the right battle for the right team, in my opinion...at least from what I have learned. I am no expert though...

JBS is rock solid.

I haven't met a JBS member that wasn't a Ron Pauler.

But like all groups (C4L, Oath Keepers, etc...) keep vigilant of phoney infiltrators.

I'm tninking of joining

I'm thinking of joining the Society for the Preservation of Wooden Toilet Seats, AKA the Birch John Society. ;-)

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Perhaps...

A spelling society.

Follow the money

look first to the finances of Russia Today RT. Who supplies the money to run a global network that broadcasts to all the world.

Then use critical thinking and ask why they tailor their news coverage depending on the audience.

As long as you remain sceptical and ask questions you cannot be lead astray.

Remember it is a business and has motives profit or otherwise.

I think that when a news outfit is honest of their biases it is better. Most news companies deny that they have biases, but it is fairly easy to discern their biases. The real kicker is when they show some news and it seems to be a straight forward story and the reporting seems non biased then you might find that by omission not commission they lie or obfuscate.

As someone else said trust no one, always filter what you hear or see through critical thinking.

Yes, and looking at the JBS

history and (lack of) much effectiveness, many have come to the conclusion that JBS was also founded to mold and control opposition to the establishment order.

So always be critical and always think.

As with any major news outfit...

...RT selects particular bits of the truth to give you. If you took them at face value, you'd be converted to international socialism. They give you more truth than the American networks, but they certainly spin it just as do our own domestic liars. The same with Al Jazeera. As always, use your reason, take nothing at face value. Research everything yourself, otherwise you might as well sprout wool and go graze in the yard. As my favorite high school teacher used to say, "use caution."

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

I am thinking: Just like FOX

I am thinking: Just like FOX garners conservative sheeple patronage, RT could try to garner the Liberty Movement. In otherwords, controlling the opposition by molding their view.

It's not like the new "old"

It's not like the new "old" system is any better. They don't call it the "Kremlin" for nothing!

Remember

The Russian people dissolved the Soviet Union through a peaceful revolution. I will never forget the day when the USSR crumbled.

I do not know who is behind RT, but I do know they have been far, far more honest reporting the news than the MSM.

Heed JBS

...They know of what they speak....

Ron Paul Spoke at JBS Last Year

Rep. Larry McDonald (D-GA) was a good friend of Dr. Paul's that Dr. Paul consulted before running for congress. McDonald was president, if I have the right title, of the John Birch Society when a plane he was riding was shot down over Russian territory.

Dr. Paul spoke at a JBS convention less than a year ago. He regularly gets 100% ratings from the New American, the JBS news magazine.

Note: There is no suggestion to not watch RT, but only that it should be considered carefully. Here is an earlier DP post on Larry McDonald in which Dr. Paul called him the most principled member in congress.

Russians

Are not reproducing, they will be gone in 100 years or so anyway due to their lack of common sense.

Would you even know a Russian

Would you even know a Russian if you saw one? Any idea how societies are intermingled by migrants?

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Most likely

Yes. By their clothes and mannerisms. I have been to Eastern Europe, you can spot them a mile away. Good people can usually sense evil.

donvino

Quatsch!

Well I've been in Europe for the most of 4 years... Most wear the same clothes as any other European. Only when they speak Russian or a mixture of Russian and the host country's language can most people discern where they're from.
Every land has their evil members... Just because they're Russian doesn't make them evil. I was in a language class with a young Russian that loves the American way! I also met a few Iraqis that were nice too! And of course a few I didn't care for...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Trust noone

Think for yourself.

I agree that Damon Noone is

I agree that Damon Noone is probably trustworthy, although I do not know much about him.

Drain the swamp!

What about Peter Noone?

Kind of a Hermit, but trustworthy, otherwise, I believe.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

Putin

when's the last time you saw anything critical of Putin on RT? never have / never will.... same s-hit / different country...

say what you will... there's more truth @ RT than in all the MSM

the younger generation in Russia are not their parents or grandparents. These kids have a better understanding of the issues than most folks in the world. I'd watch who's toes ya step on, we may need a good ally someday. Remember our buddy, France, back in the American Revolution?... I'm not jumping to conclusions, but we may need those folks someday. I think the RT haters are just out to discredit the entire liberty movement and perpetuate "red scare" propaganda. But hey, if ya don't like em, don't watch em. Maybe you and Jesse Benton can sit around and watch Fox News together.

"sometimes I hug the coffee table when no one is looking."

When RT starts blatantly fabricating news...

like FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC, ABCNews, et. al. I will stop watching it. As many of my fellow net surfers, I get my information from many sources and at this time in history I find that RT is the only Television News that covered Occupy, the bailouts, Ron Paul, Unconstitutional Wars (Plural), loss of civil liberties, police brutality, real economics (not keynesian), and... Julian Assange. Take the time to watch Assange's show. It is like nothing else in the world.

Agreed!

Agreed!

No need to vote the string down.

It is simply another side of the story and it behoves all of us to keep in the back of our minds.

Ron Paul no longer does interviews with RT

I know, what a shame....

they're the only network that actually gives the man fair recognition, and yet he has to ignore them so he doesn't get called a commie spy. Ridiculous "red scare" garbage....ugghh....

"sometimes I hug the coffee table when no one is looking."

RT got rid of Adam Kokesh

I wouldn't trust them

https://twitter.com/#!/Agonzo1

Adam left at his own accord...

Turns out he can't go around promoting candidates on a foreign network... and when I say promoting candidates, I mean promoting a Ron Paul moneybomb. (it wasn't RT's fault, it's just election rules and it could have hurt the RP campaign).
