  1. Censorship on the Net has become a cancer. When it destroys its host we’ll be back in the Middle Ages, when the Inquisitors called the shots.

  3. It’s inspiring to hear Michael Hudson. Thank you for making the videos easier to find on YouTube. I’m going through RT withdrawal after watching so many of their shows since they started broadcasting on YT.

    • Same here, Dennis. And thank you for dropping by.

      Many of the RT America videos such as Hedges’ show On Contact, are still available but not on Youtube, so I don’t have a way to embed them in the blog posts. However, I have edited many of the recent posts with links to either RT.com or Portable TV where the videos are still watchable.

      • I’ve been starting to watch some of my favorite shows on RT dot com. I think they are broadcasting on Telegram and two other websites my mind doesn’t recall. Two years ago on Twitter I was being called Putin’s Pal. This year it’s Igor. My browser now hits a DOD check before allowing me to go to RT. If you want a map of the world showing NATO countries I have one.
