The death of free speech is imminent. Anyone with access to a computer and the internet can see that the United States mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda machine designed to brainwash the masses into a lemming-like agreement with the government.
And now, it’s oh-so-ironic that the same government that tells the media what to report on in order brainwash the public is seeking to quiet those who disagree and label them as “propaganda.” Some may call it fake news, others just want a different opinion rather than the left-leaning media hysteria we are accustomed to. But now, media outlet RT (Russia Today), founded in Russia will have to register with the United States as “foreign media;” which will forever give it the inaccurate title of “propaganda.”
This doesn’t apply to merely the Russian version of the news outlet, but the American-run and operated site as well. According to The Hill, in a report on Monday, RT did not name the company that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has compelled to file paperwork under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, but blasted the edict as overreaching.
“The war the US establishment wages with our journalists is dedicated to all the starry-eyed idealists who still believe in freedom of speech. Those who invented it, have buried it,” Margarita Simonyan, RT’s editor-in-chief, said about the registration.
Media organizations have been exempted from the law, which is wide-ranging in its disclosure requirements and generally applies to political consultants and those working in lobbying or public relations. It would be a felony if RT is found to have willfully failed to register as a foreign agent, however. The registration would not stop the organization from operating, but requires regularly submitted paperwork that lists its sources of foreign government-tied revenue and the contacts it makes in the United States, and it would require any reporting to be labeled as being influenced or financed by the Russian government. –The Hill
RT has also contracted with Julian Assange, who runs WikiLeaks and is suspected of leaking internal emails from the Democratic National Committee, so the fact that they are being singled out with attempts to silence their reporting is not a big surprise to anyone with functioning neurons.
RT must be a threat to the political elites and the establishment, or they would be left alone while outlets like CNN brainwash and lie for profit to prop up the wealthy and powerful politicians they will stop at nothing to protect.
Off topic! Japan is buying stocks and owns 75% of all ETF’s in Japan as reported by Zerohedge. This is what is going on here in the USA also. I hate being all in but I do not want to miss the biggest printed rally in history. How are you guys handling this? Are you going all in?
Greywar, I used to work at the SEC and my advise is that if you play rigged games of chance prepare to get burned. The small investor will always be the last to act and the ones holding the bag.
But then again, I’ve seen too much fraud and abuse to participate. This market is not investing, it’s gambling!
First you should know I am a professorial sanctioned killer …You should also know that
there are around 6 ways of dealing with people you do not agree with …
You can persuade them to your side … and argue on facts and
principles or …
You can Ignore their pleadings … no action
You prohibit them from discussion (first form of force)
You use appropriate violence to suppress their speech (second level of force )
You can fight … them and force them to your will … (force at level 3 )
You can kill them ( ultimate level of force)
Never… never… never …suppress free speech …or you will
ultimately unleash people like me …
to solve your problems ..I have …and I will put an end to… “it”
Which translates….. business as usual.
Some years from now, a Winston Smith type person will write of remembering this time of the free flow of information. He will be found out, labeled as a crazy terrorist, and condemned. Most people won’t believe him anyway, and those few who do, will be too terrified to acknowledge it…
JustMe, I’m a Winston Smith type and I’ll NEVER be taken alive.
Everyone has their own Room 101. I figure yours is not being able to tell everyone what a tough guy you are on sites like this.
Oh, by the by. Winston Smith was taken alive and he was broken.
Anonymous, just because the REAL Winston Smith was taken DOESN’T NECESSARILY mean I will be.
There ya go! Tough guy keyboard commando talking, be real careful, you might scare the horses….Nah, you’ll eat craw like they all do.
By the by, Winston Smith wasn’t real…”he” was a figment of Orwell’s imagination…bit like how your fervid imagination works.
Our freedoms have been peeled away little by little so that we would not notice. In place of freedom to disagree about the growing power of IsRealHell and the ZioControlled Government, 3ew News, etc.; we got vulgarity. The right to use the “F” word over and over, as long as we don’t say anything about the racist ethno State of IsRealHell who runs the Internet and now is censoring it more than ever before.
Why aren’t members of the Israel lobby in America, many of whom are dual citizens, required to register as agents of a foreign government. Here is what they get away with:
B, NOBODY tells me what to think or say, what sources I can go to for information, or anything else. I live by a set of rules called THE BILL OF RIGHTS, NOT BY ANY DRACONIAN CRAP ANY GOVT. OFFICIAL COMES UP WITH. TPTB can go f#$% themselves.
It’s all propaganda. It’s just which one you choose to follow.
Pretty soon, the only people who will have freedom of speech left will be the ones who charge a whole bundle of bucks in speaker fees. If you mumble in your sleep, don’t sleep!!
9mm FMJ 20 cents per round ? OO buck 30 cents per round? No brainer?
where you buyin’ buckshot for 30 cents a round?
Well,short of crashing the net really will not work,powers that want to be crash net,huge loss in taxes(theft),till then will always be workarounds ect.I would also say work on other forms of comms like radio,perhaps a rebirth of printing ect.I also believe they censor enough on net hackers will truly wreck it(net) to a large degree,once again,bringing no food for the beast.
Have you stopped to best of ability to not use gaggle products/fecesbook/twaddle ect. and found alternitives,have you dumped the dirty window/rotten apple for linus OS systems,if not,do so,can help starve these fuckers,oh,and if you have not,stop getting cable tube!
What does “ect.” mean?
Some of the enemy is listed right at top of this article,tis a disease I tell ya!
If the internet is stripped of free speech that means free speech will have to be taken to the streets as provided by our Constitution and Bill of Rights. That is the drop dead line in the sand. Let them try to stop millions expressing our concerns and opinions freely and openly. We cannot allow our voices to be criminalized and muted.
Don’t understand why that comment would draw moderation.
RT news (Russia Today) is a commie web site. A mouth piece for the Russian government.
But it was always fun listening to them blast Obuma and his idiot policies
A refreshing different point of view from the globalist msm news and their lies.
If they actually start out right censoring RT news it will be a new low and another step towards the Orwellian police state.
I guess most would agree that child snuff flicks need to be banned? They will soon try to lower the age of consent. And what people do in the privacy of their own bedroom is nobodies business? Child snuff film advocates parading in the streets?Soddom and Gomorrah?Then we will all need to be exterminated? Condoning,appeasing? Tolerating ? . Canibleism? Two consenting adults? Incest? The sky’s the limit? It seems as in soddom and Gomorrah. If we don’t get rid of them , God will get rid of all of us?
ever notice when there’s breaking news, the mainstream media ALL have the same headline?
While Free Speech is still alive, let’s talk about SPAM.
First, it’s on SALE at Costco this month. Second, it’s a prepper staple. Third, it’s pretty unappetizing!
So let’s talk recipes while we still can! I have two main ones; First, Fried Spam & Taters w/Eggs. I have buckets of diced potatoes (and plan to dehydrate a lot more this winter) so this recipe is great.
Second, uses extra rice. When you make a big pot of rice you have left over rice that becomes dry and unappetizing! This recipe is perfect for that … I also make Pineapple and Spam fried rice.
How To Make Spam Fried Rice Recipe-(Asian Comfort Food Recipes)
meat is a problem for a lot of preppers. we get veggies, soups, rice, beans, macaroni, and beans, but many have no MEAT(is spam really MEAT?) to put in it. it’s a very important part of our diets. when costco sells it for less than 2$ a can, it should be bought agressively. limit 2 cases, but you know you can keep going back OFTEN to get what you need…..don’t stack it too high, as i hear this causes those easy-open cans to sometimes not stay sealed. maybe kula or rellick can tell their experience with it? thanks, justice, for some great posts/recipes!
buttcrackofdoom, I just got back from Costco, yet again, and I purchased 6 more 8 packs of Spam. I have doubled my Spam preps this month but I’ve had to delay my canned chicken purchases.
I stock up of the sale items whenever I can!
DEHYDRATED SLICED POTATOES AT WALWART SALE!!!! Well I’m excited, I order 10 #10 cans for $50.00.
Augason Farms Emergency Food Dehydrated Potato Slices, 20 oz was $12.00 Now $4.99
I’ve got that big bucket of Augason Farms potato slices! Good preps man!
Justice,am more a dog food kind of guy!By that,I mean corned beef hash,recipes for using it though basically same as spam!
Warchild Dammit!, I hear you and I don’t like Spam unless you cook it up right. So I searched high and Lo for good recipes. I also keep hearing that it has an EXTREMELY-LONG shelf-life. So it and canned chicken are going to be my main sources of protein.
Obviously you haven’t looked long and hard enough! Never heard of pemmican? Lasts just about forever. Spam? You just have to be joking!
I saw it on this channel but have not gotten around to making it yet. But I will try to move it up my list of prepper tasks.
Pemmican – The Ultimate Survival Food
If you’re eating spam you, yourself, are dead meat! Too many chemicals. Have you looked at the ingredients in this crap called spam?
“Food” for morons to make them even more moronic! Produce your own long life stuff…not the processed muck you’re advocating Mr Advocate! That way you know what you’re eating.
Google, Facebook, the media are all censuring now. We’re doomed!
It ain’t the gubmint that practices censorship, it’s right wing blogs like Michael Sndyer’s “The Economic Collapse Blog”. That guy will ban you outright for disagreeing with him. No free speech over there on that blog. It’s just a big echo chamber, and dissenting opinions will be banned. Extremely un-American, but they don’t care. They only consider you an American if you believe their lying propaganda.
Zlatko, your opinions are welcome here, even if we disagree with them.
“And now,… the government that tells the media what to report on in order brainwash the public is seeking to quiet those who disagree and label them as “propaganda”…
Well, of course they are going to do that!!! EVERYTHING the US government does it DIRECTLY out of the book, 1984: “black is white and white is black.” They are experts on deception.
The same articles and the same boring commenters posting the SAME drivel year after year!
I know, I shouldn’t visit here then. Well, I only check in every few months at the most to see if FINALLY there might be ONE single new commenter with something to actually contribute, but NO.
I stopped commenting in general a long, long time ago here after I determined that it was a waste of typing.
So, all five of you lifers, continue to have fun with your rhetoric.
Robert – Please show us what interesting things you have for us to read. We are anxiously awaiting your insights.
