Russia Today show [Adam Kokesh], funded by Putin, called propaganda outlet
World Tribune ^ | April 6, 2011 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on 04/23/2011 2:38:47 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

The international Moscow-funded propaganda network known as Russia Today (RT) is set to air a program hosted by a U.S. Marine Veteran opposed to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The vet’s press agent, Nena Bartlett, is a former assistant campaign manager for Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) known as the “bikini calendar girl” for having appeared in a “Ladies of Liberty” calendar.

RT, in a few words, is a bastion of anti-American propaganda.

So... the plot thickens as to the Rand Paul-Adam Kokesh connection, as one of Paul's staffer's is Kokesh's agent who arranged for him to have a program on RT.

In trying to attract and confuse an American audience, RT regularly features Marxist and radical commentators in the U.S. such as Noam Chomsky, Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, Carl Dix of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and 9/11 “inside job” advocate and radio host Alex Jones.

The above persons, in effect, are fellow travelers of Rand and Ron Paul.

The American Marine Veteran, Adam Kokesh, seems to fit the bill, having emerged as an anti-war activist who ran as a Republican for Congress and supported Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) for president. He has described himself as part of the “G.I. Resistance movement” and opposes paying federal income taxes for “unconstitutional government.” He is also part of a movement known as “slave uprising” that works to “fight fascism” in the U.S.

How is it that Kokesh and the Pauls are allowed to call themselves Republican instead of what they are -- Traitors -- and how the hell were Kentuckians ever stupid enough to send Rand to the UNITED STATES SENATE???

I think the “Bushbots” ran a real Republican versus Rand Paul in the 2010 primary, so what you are saying makes no sense and it is dumbass Kentuckians who voted for Rand who have and will have “a lot to answer for.”

They aren’t called traitors for the same reason that the Bushes aren’t, that Hillary isn’t, that Pelosi isn’t, that Romney isn’t etc,,,,, whatever that reason is.

These low lifes going to another country are no worse that “good republicans” and mainstream democrats who work each to to bring the USA into the world community.
This Marine traitor is only doing it openly.

To me, there are things i love about Paul,, but his fatal flaw is the fact that he attracts people that disgust me. That makes me really slow down,,,a lot.

Well, fortunately or unfortunately — depending, RT is being aired on a former PBS station here in SoCal. It’s on a new network called mHz which also airs al jazeera, euronews and a bunch of other “international” stuff, so I caught Kokesh yakking on there as I was flipping channels last night. Oh yeah, he loves to talk....

Here she is, apparently, for the Ladies of Liberty calender. Not actually that attractive, although I imagine Laz would hit it.

If you love Paul, then you hate the military, and it follows of course that you would attack Bush and Romney. You might be able to get a job at RT also.

Isolationism is simply not possible or beneficial for any continuation of U.S. strength.

The achievement and maintenance of freedom is a continuous battle that libertarians like yourself simply do not want to fight.

If he was a repub in the Bush cloth,,, good for them for them in Kaintucky for rejecting another repubastard. We are fed up with those that will vote for anything McConnell/Boehner tells them to,, sing in the repub barbershop quartet, sit on sofas with Pelosi, be collegial,,etc.

Know about Bush,, he sided with the world court against Texas when Texas was executing a man who raped a 13 and 14 year old girl,,and strangled them with a belt till it broke. The Murderer bragged that after an hour of torture, beaten and gang raped every way possible, one little girl swore she would give them her number and endure another gang rape every weekend if they just wouldn’t kill her. But Bush wanbted to make Mexico and the world court happy,,, so did the vaunted condeleeza. You see, he was supposedly a mexican citizen because he came here as an illegal when he was 5 or something.

Elsewhere, Marines are STILL fighting criminal charges after firefights where they should have got medals. He gave us prescription drug and never addressed freddy/ fanny and subprime.
He finally addressed ANWR and offshore as he walked out the door. (doing nothing when he had both houses) He loved open borders, started a working group to create a north American union. He acted like climate change was real.

Im disgusted with outright democrat communists,,but i will never accept that Bush/rove republicanism is the legitimate alternative.

Better to vote for the dems directly than to endure the death of a thousand cuts.

“To me, there are things i love about Paul,, but his fatal flaw is the fact that he attracts people that disgust me.”

Ok little enchilada,,You can read,,,can’t you? I’ll make it more simple for you,,,while Paul is dead right in his economics, and his pro-life creds, and his 2nd amendment creds there are other positions of his that i oppose. And no, i don’t hate the military, having spent my fair share of time in in very loud and scary places that it sounds like maybe you haven’t visited.
Unlike a Bushbot, i can see where ron paul is right, and where he is tragically wrong. I wish you guys could do the same with your worship of the Ivy league internationalist Bush family. Rand Paul is way closer to right than his dad ever was..

But you are sadly out of touch if you think the answer to America’s problem is Bush or Romney.

“Isolationism is simply not possible or beneficial for any continuation of U.S. strength.”

Absolutely true,,, but repubs take that to mean the USA must not demand engagement on terms beneficial to the USA first. Isolationism is a bad policy,,,but so is a policy where American interests and people are ALWAYS given the finger and the foreigners must be placated. Thats just as bad as open treason on Russian TV.

The better way is to be VERY solid in American principles and values,, and them go forth into the world and engage them all as friends,,,, but to NEVER compromise our core values. If someone won’t deal squarely, on our terms,, they must be avoided and sometimes resisted openly.

Like siding with Mexico against Texas. Like Law of the Sea treaty,, like empowering the depraved UN at every opportunity. Like one sided trade laws,,,

Millions for defense, but not a cent for tribute. Unfortunately,, Bush and Romney repubs pay a lot of tribute these days. And as for defense, they will stab the boys in the back a million ways,,but as long as they spend money on procurement, get to pose as pro military. For too long they have traded as the default alternative to the Treasonous dems. If they want support in the future,, they have to dance to our tea party tune. Get used to it, cause it ain’t changing!

The point of this thread is that Rand and Ron Paul are in league with anti-American traitor Adam Kokesh, so you can make all the noise you like to distract from that, but it IS the point.

Sorry about the “idiot”. That was uncalled for. (Dang, I was sober too!)

For my money, we have been living in a continuous Bush regime since 1984 and we are much the worse for it. But, I should not have called names.

How are they traitors? Because they don’t support fake, endless war where our boys are used as cannon fodder for the global elite?

Because they whore themselves to the KGB to help undermine American power, giving aid and comfort to those attacking America. (I think we should level Afghanistan and leave. That's not the issue here. Treasonous self-serving bastards are. Kokesh is also no fan of free speech, having famously commited fraud in posting fake fliers for a GWU YAF event to get the leftist university administration to stop the event. This enemy of Free Speech, the Constitution, American Soldiers, and conservatism is what you defend in your straw arguement of Kokesh vs Bush?

Good grief.

I don't know much about Kokesh beyond the two episodes I have seen of his show. I liked the two episodes I saw and I do tune into RT now and again. However, I did, yesterday, see some asinine post he made on Facebook equating Christians and Muslims.

I don't know if anything or anyone can be more seditious, treasonous or stomach turning than our own media, officials, etc. Sadly, I find more truth watching Russia Today than I ever could watching any American media outlet.

Race, I saw that you posted about this @3 weeks ago — when it was news — but I went ahead and posted this article because it highlights the CONTINUING connection with Rand Paul, which I think people should know about. Don’t be a poor sport, Race.

Riri is an Arizonan, who seems to follow the Austrian School of economics. (Ludwig von Mises) None of the modern followers of the Austrian School of Economics, as opposed to the standard Neo-Classical School, are actual Österreicher (Austrians).
Many Österreichers understand the threat. Sadly the EU regime in Vienna prosecutes and persecutes those dealing with Islam like Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. Such common sense and self-preservation is lacking among the official organs of the Austrian School of Economics. From Mises ove Vietnam onwards, they've been a bunch of traitors, imaginining away the threats of communism and Islam and imagining DC to be Moscow.

There is no news in Truth, no truth in News. Russian TV has facts the same what the Daily Worker does. It is agitprop. Think of it as Al Jazeera English, but for people who like warmed over Soviet propaganda.

What would Russian AgitPop be designed to do at this point? Ideological subversion? Of what? Marxism? haha. Right. He are subverted up to our eyeballs in case you haven’t noticed. Splinter us in factions? Weaken us? All funny on every account. We are in such a sad and sorry condition, from our own doing, I can’t even fear anyone else as much I do our own leftists, useful idiots and subversives.

Thank you.
However, I think I’ll forget about having the courtesy to ping others who might be concerned about the matter.
In fact, I’m not sure why I bothered to post in the first place.
Really.

That is too esoteric for me.
I am simply as American as apple pie, Mom and the red-white-and-blue.
For me and other patriots, there is no other word for Adam Kokesh than traitor.
And I highly suspect the political motivations of Ron and Rand Paul.
