McAdams Warns US Empire Is "Too Fragile" For A Free Press

The US Congress yesterday revoked press credentials for the Russia-backed RT America television station, claiming RT's new "foreign agent" status disqualified it from conducting journalism on Capitol Hill.

RPI Director Daniel McAdams appeared on RT's The Ed Shultz Show to criticize the move on the grounds that the US government should not attempt to prevent Americans from viewing whatever media they choose.

The move is really an attempt by Washington's neoconservatives to prevent any criticism of US interventionist foreign policy, he told RT:

Does RT sometimes reflect the views of the Kremlin? Sure. But not nearly so much as Western media, including most US MSM and, in particular, the BBC (Strange how since it was last bailed-out by the Government the BBC seems to have become direct propoganda?).On balance, however, RT provides better, more truthful and more in-depth (Compared to MSM "sound bites") news coverage; and indeed all coverage. Which is, of course, why it is being harassed, First amendment or no First amendment. This should be causing outrage amongst the American people as the First and Second amendments, or the vestiges that remain, come under further attack by the Deep State.

What the Russians are purportedly thinking:“We beat them is Syria, we are beat(ing) them in the Ukraine, they lost Afghanistan, they lost Iraq, their Navy apparently does not know how to use a radar, their soldiers are terrified to fight somebody capable of resistance, they failed to impress not only China, but even the North Koreans who are openly laughing at them.  Hezbollah laughs at them.  Even Venezuela refuses to be scared!  The Iranians openly threaten them with consequences if they back out of the deal they signed. Even Pakistan is openly expressing its disgust with the USA.  Ditto for Turkey.  Heck – the Americans are losing on all fronts and the very best they can do is try to feel good about illegally harassing our diplomatic personnel! Pathetic, lame, losers!”per The Sakerhttps://thesaker.is/make-no-mistake-the-latest-us-thuggery-is-a-sign-of…

Trump is the Swamp, if you want to get to the bottom of it.A despicable dead-beat landlord and serial bunko artist withconvictions/fines for money laundering, and human traffickingconnections to the NYC former-Soviet mafiya that funds him. We had a 'choice' between NY ZioWarPig A, or NY ZioWarPig B.They are two sides of the same ZioWarPig, ass-end backwards,putrid shit pouring out of both of their bungholes, to this day.It's all financed by Gramm-Leach-Bliley nee Citizens' United,a perpetual Sorcerer's Apprentice of corrupting tax-dodge $s.Satan surely rose from the Zio-ashes of the 'Freedom Tower'. There is going to be a massive internal migration by business,and with that, a massive unemployment for the 'losers', and ahorror of uber-mad housing prices and commutes for 'winners'.Then an internal migration of Labor will leave a Trail of Tears,leaving the homes they paid for, for new near-urban shitholes,and the ones who don't make the cut, or pushed out by H-1Bs,will fill the New American Century Tent Cities of the 'WINNING'. Congress' New Taxes and Hand Jobs Act of 2017 is a disaster.All the Corporate profits will flee to the Virgin Islands, tax free.

 Since when have we had a free press? Fuck, since the telegraph the important narratives have been a product of consensus & collusion between the guberment & moguls that owned the rags. The past 5/10 years with JooTube only provided a temporary alternate means of information distribution that was formerly the purview of Shortwave & Newsletters for the Alt-Right. And, of course, they're working hard to shut that shit down, along with the rest of social media. Save America? There's nothing to save. The place was rigged from the beginning – just some of us were stupid enough to believe what we were taught.

If you look at Cincinnati, for example, they has 2 publications: the American Israelite (no shit, right) and the Cincinatti Enquirer. And Cincinnati is where Charles Manson came from.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_American_Israelitehttps://en.wikipedi… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_newspapers_in_OhioThe US isn't too fragile for a free press. The us is too fragile without a free press. See how they conflate and lie? When shit is Superman 3 the fake press wishbone douchebags are playing lois lane in superman one.I know a Rose there. His fat fuck dad was head of the Sweedenborgs in Cincinatti. He actually asked if I was civilized when we first met. I said, what a proper English question. I then asked what brings you into the basement at a typewriter. I drove your kid home in my car.I've brushed up against enough fucking nasty asshole people and I'll just tell you that my friend is stuck in hell with his Feminist studies nazi ho-bag bitch and rides his bike to work at a fuck hole library that no one goes to. But I still love them. They are my un-friends.When people try to describe a free press in the United States over the past 120 years, Fuck you. Now that there is a free press, and people realize how much they suck and write ad copy that no one gives a fuck for any longer, It's important to be precice what bullshit assholes you push up in your stacks in Cincinnati because all they were born to do is sell out.It takes a lot of work to get paid for being a shill these days. I like to talk shit as an avocation. The pleasure is mine. Free speech is here to stay. Fuck The American Israelite. There was 100 papers in the Nati as many years ago you fags. How much does UC and the fucking fake ass Jews including the Russian Weinsteins who were my housemates wanna counter? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_CincinnatiWhat Jews call free speech I call fake tits. Someone has to pay for it.Believe me, I've been around enough dumb assholes people. http://bq.blakearchive.org/pdfs/26.2.schuchard.pdfAnd then I've been in people's living rooms whom today I would rather puke to be near. I seen them. Fat. Disgusting. Or ok with insane rabid wives inhabiting the upper east side talking about how their fake tits broke and they're going to die. Just beautiful. Shit I can't even imagine. Some insane cunt telling me to throw her husbands harvard MBA diploma in the trash. I hid it in a closet with his golf trophies. I had no idea. Just shows you what an ugly hateful bitch she was talking to a goy.Shit, I have more respect for you kikes than you have for each other. That's why I laugh at you now and fear everyone but you fake fucks. Your lives are disgusting. You're like MLK and think you are Jesus. Fucking rapists. Plagairists. Wannabe fat fucks in basements pretending.I talk shit for fun and it's true. You lie for money. Tupish.

Petulant elites throwing a tantrum, trying to pretend they still have the power to control what people see and hear.  Pathetic, childish, and stupid.

News should be treated like advertising.Truth, Bullshit with disclaimers and such.The News could have channels that compete with the truth may attract viewers and offer competition.

The article you linked is helpful in order to gain perspective on what the intent of the zionists may be. The article exposes the 'play by play' mentality and warped perception among the Zog empire warlords. What the article doesn't mention is the Chinese presence in Syria, Special Forces, now that China has a toe hold in the ME. Imho, Israel being the land based carrier for forward operations in the ME for small 'e' empire, will inevitably get its ass handed to it and wind up in cinders due to Netanyahu's gambit...
