Propaganda

Is the Russian threat real or all hype?

As Democrats continue their apoplectic fit over Russia’s alleged meddling in the election, the real propaganda is right in front of us.

Since 2005, Russia Today (known as RT) has been streaming content into the United States (and around the world).

RT has several channels including RT America, which is based out of Washington, D.C. and maintains a daily evening schedule from 4 p.m. to midnight Eastern.

As you would suspect, Russia Today is funded by the Russian government and has an official budget of only $300 million according to the Moscow Times, but other sources have reported budgets in excess of $1.4 billion, which is more believable.

Like its American propaganda counterpart, Voice of America, the broadcasts produced by RT are largely only seen outside of its own borders.

However, unlike our own weak propaganda network, that goes so far as to highlight Black Lives Matter, RT covers mainly American politics rather than its own.

And they do it with established media figures.

Remember Larry King and his suspenders? No, he didn’t retire; he now hosts a show on RT America called Politicking with Larry King.

Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz moved his program, News with Ed Schultz, over to RT America.

Liberal radio host Thom Hartmann, who landed in Talkers Magazine top ten, is now broadcasting on RT America with his show, The Big Picture.

Then you have a little known guy names Sean Stone, whose claim to fame is his association with his father, Oliver Stone.  Stone hosts a show on RT called Buzzsaw.

What do King, Schultz, Hartmann and Stone all have in common? That’s right . . . they’re liberals.

But that’s not to say that RT America is a “liberal” network.

Their modus operandi is to disrupt the government establishment and diminish the reputation of the U.S. government among Americans.

To libertarians and a large swath of Trump supporters, they are very late to the game.

Congress alone does an incredible job of diminishing its own reputation.

Given that RT is a government propaganda machine, they make the mistake of assuming that the power of America lies within the organization of its government.

But American patriots, going back to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, know the sober reality that government is not a strength, it’s either a “dangerous servant” or a “fearful master.”

If anything Russia Today is helping America by putting government back into that “dangerous servant” category.

Politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and others, will always position government as a fearful master . . . and that’s yet another reason why are in full “Red Threat” mode.

The Clinton campaign doesn’t know how to handle the releases from WikiLeaks, so CNN has decided to just say they are illegal.

If you think the mainstream media is on the side of truth then you have not been paying attention.

CNN has been caught coaching focus groups to seem more pro-Clinton, but what they said about WikiLeaks is pure propaganda with fear tactics.

The Cable News Network actually went on air and said it is illegal for Americans to search WikiLeaks, but somehow CNN is excluded.

See the clip below.

Just to make it clear, it is not illegal for Americans to search the WikiLeaks website and you can even print out from it if you like.

The goal appears to be to scare the viewers and make sure they don’t go and do the research themselves. CNN wants you to trust them for all the news that you need.

Regardless of what the media says, they don’t want you to go to WikiLeaks and search the truth for yourself. We encourage research. Here is the link to search the database of the WikiLeaks release.

Share this article with a friend of yours that believes everything they hear on CNN.
