They threaten 'retaliation' for being forced to follow the law.  Meanwhile, Russia has received zero 'retaliation' whatsoever for interfering in our elections. Sanctions were voted in, but then never enacted, and of course the complicit GOP will allow that. Russia has to know by this point that once this Admin is removed, there will be hell to pay. They should be classified as cyber-terrorists, and subject to the same treatment we currently use for ISIS.

When will Alex Jones register?
He quotes RT. Fox quotes him. D2S sets American policy based on what Fox and Friends tells him to do.

In finance, banks have an absolute obligation to know who they receive money from and send money to.

Social media needs to follow the same requirements on accounts and advertising.

TheDirtyNacho: kanesays: Senate candidate Roy Moore's son is arrested for the ninth time

This happened Wednesday.

Meh.  My brother is a useless ne'er do well too.  Doesn't really reflect on anything but his poor decision making skills.


It's been said before, I'm sure, but how far would Obama have gotten if there were headlines like "Senate candidate Barack Obama's son is arrested for the ninth time" back when he was running?

dambis: So long story short we are attacking the channel I watch in the airport rather than going after the real issues? I will watch whatever is on but that happened to be on a lot.


Real issues like what? Football players "disrespecting the anthem"? Uranium One? The homosexual problem?

So if RT isn't  Russian government sponsored propaganda, why would the Russian government  even care what happened to an American TV network?  Did they react the same way when Fox cancelled The Tick?

Anyone who has watched 5 minutes of RT knows exactly what it is - so please, just shut up and register or GTFO (your choice).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't RT literally a government channel?
I mean there isn't some Russian Murdoch out there, is there?
If that was the case, then sure, it registers as a foreign agent in whatever country it operates.
Kind of like an extension of the embassy.
IF, however, it's privately owned, that's not right, and it should have the label removed or proven the owner is a front.

RT used to be a pretty good channel. Wasn't overly biased as far as I could tell and had some interesting non-news programs such as travel shows. Unfortunately that all changed after the invasion of Crimea.

This month, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow was preparing "a surprise" in response to pressure on Russian media outlets in the United States. Asked by a Russian television talk show host Thursday whether "The Washington Post and the New York Times should pack their suitcases," she said: "Hold on, not all at once - we'll unpack our surprise bit by bit."
You know who else would love to tell NYT and WaPo to pack their bags?

So obviously Moore's son is an America hating law breaking scumbag. And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. And you're trying to deflect, which makes you just as bad.

They aren't afraid of copyright law, and have really good videos accordingly.

I think RT is a pretty cool channel. Eh good videos and doesnt afraid of anything.

Yeah, doesn't afraid of anything.
Nice Russian syntax there, Boris.

U.S. intelligence agencies in January described RT America TV as "a Kremlin-financed channel operated from within the United States, [which] has substantially expanded its repertoire of programming that highlights criticism of alleged U.S. shortcomings in democracy and civil liberties.''

So, we're doing this to prove them right?

It's all political. They're out to hurt Moore by arresting his poor, wittle, innocent son....because there isn't already enough dirt against Moore himself.
