Russia Today News Anchor Quits on Air: Is This Manufactured Dissent by Russia?

Liz Wahl, a news anchor for Russia Today–a Russian-funded news organization that now has many outlets within the United States and has become quite popular in recent years–supposedly quit her job on Wednesday because she could no longer be “part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin.”

Is this true?

Can this be trusted?

What if this news anchor’s “quitting” was just a ploy to re-instill in the minds of the world that Russia Today, although funded by the same Russian government that this anchor claims would commit such an evil act of invasion, is a legitimate news organization run by people like Liz who oppose Russia’s militaristic spread, and thus is trustworthy?

I’ve always had questions about Russia Today.

I remember the first time I heard of it, I was scratching my head, puzzled: what the hell is a Russian news organization doing operating WITHIN the U.S., and worse: what is it doing CONSTANTLY criticizing the U.S.?

Now, I’m the FIRST person criticizing the U.S., because quite simply, the U.S. is worthy of criticism: unceasing imperialist wars, banker bailouts against the will of the citizens who paid for  it, and never-ending abuses of Americans’ (humans’) civil liberties here within the country.

So when I saw RT, years ago, not only criticizing the U.S. (and even giving a voice to 9/11 conspiracy theories), but also giving a platform for anti-U.S. voices WITHIN the U.S., like American citizens Adam Kokesh, Luke Rudkowski, Stefan Molyneux, Alex Jones, and basically ANY of the hardcore, libertarian, ANTI-American-Imperialism voices–I couldn’t help but feel like, if ANYTHING, RT was doing some good for the world: they were letting peaceful libertarians trash-talk the U.S. and all of its imperialistic, anti-liberty, anti-peace actions in the past century.

Swell, right?

Certainly, as a libertarian myself, and someone opposed to the unfettered war-mongering of the United States, I enjoyed what RT was reporting on, but I always wondered about ONE, IMPORTANT, QUESTION:

“Do you think Russia Today blasts American imperialism because they’re opposed to imperialism, or because they’re geopolitically opposed to the U.S.?”

Think about it: Russia is obviously not some peaceful nation that cares TOO much about individual rights, sovereignty, freedom, or respecting other country’s boundaries.

Obviously, they can’t: they just invaded Ukraine, lol.

Oh sure, Russia will claim they only invaded because they want to protect the Russians in the country.

Yeah, and Iraq has weapons of mass destruction hidden inside Saddam Hussein’s rectum…

Most recently, Russia was criticized during the Winter Olympics for their abuse and suppression of gay rights.

So there’s a bizarre discrepancy:

1) On one side, you’ve got Russia Today, a news organization funded and founded by the Russian government, that spends most of its time criticizing the U.S. for being imperialistic and abusing citizen rights.

2) But on the other hand, you’ve got the Russian government being imperialistic and abusing citizen rights (i.e.: invading Ukraine, gay rights abuses, etc.).

So, if Russia is REALLY opposed to imperialism and individual rights violations, as RT spends most of its time criticizing about the U.S., then why does Russia take part in the VERY SAME ABUSES?

Again, this begs the question: “Do you think Russia Today blasts American imperialism because they’re opposed to imperialism, or because they’re geopolitically opposed to the U.S.?”

We live in a very complex world: the days of 1 dictator ruling a specific set of land until an eventual downfall are over.

Today, politics and power have gone global: tyrants are no longer limited to one geographic region: why would they be?

When you take a flight and be halfway across the world in a few hours, why limit your dictatorial rule to one part of the world?

You have to understand that tyranny has gone global, and the days of “countries” being the geopolitical “line in the sand” that differentiated between the “good guys and the bad guys”, are over.

Now, the most powerful people in the world don’t identify themselves as leaders of “this country or that country”.

Instead, they identify themselves as the OWNERS of “this company or that company”, of “this bank or that bank”, of “this multinational corporation or that multinational corporation”.

Countries STILL exist, but the boundaries that have existed for ages are quickly dissolving, and the elite are no longer limited by distance.

Just think about the Bohemian Grove, or think about the Bilderberg Group: essentially private meetings of the most powerful public and private elitist figures, converging to discuss their next moves on the global chessboard.

What YOU have to realize, is that YOU ARE THE CHESS PIECE

Now, at first this realization may seem a bit scary, as if it is just TOO MUCH to handle.

But remember: the capstone of the pyramid cannot stand without the base.

Those above us maintain their centralized power by DECEIVING us into believing they represent us.

So we vote for this mayor, or that governor, or that president, and we expect them to take care of us (when, time and again, it’s clear they aren’t).

So, don’t be bogged down, or intimidated, by the sobering fact that  you are, at the moment, a chesspiece on a global game of chess: at first, it is debilitating, but once you accept, and embrace this truth, and then move forward to inform yourself and others, then the pyramidal structure of the world will begin to crumble, and the capstone of the pyramid, which has relied primarily on your IGNORANCE to succeed, will descend into equilibrium (equality) with the entirety of humanity and the holistic interconnectivity of the ether of reality.

But, back to Russia for a moment: the point of this is to simply ask some deep questions, and to realize that geopolitical circumstances have changed dramatically in the past 20 years, 10 years, even the past 5 years.

Is Russia using the Russia Today news organization as a way to weaken Americans’ support for their own country, thus indirectly empowering Russia?

Is THAT why RT reports anti-government news all day (albeit, LEGITIMATE criticisms of the American empire)?

Are they trying to weaken the internal infrastructure of American nationalistic patriotism by portraying America as evil, all while giving Russia an upper-hand over their American geopolitical opponent?

Hard to know for sure: but I find it odd that Liz Wahl, the RT news anchor who quit on air, actually DID quit in the first place.

I mean, even SHE admits in an interview with the Daily Beast that the management at RT is manipulative to its employees, and punishes those who stray from the expected narrative, and that “in order to succeed there you don’t question.”

Hmm: a news organization that is so strict, manipulative, and quick to DISALLOW views that oppose Russia, STILL allows Liz to quit on-air in opposition of Russia?

I thought they were manipulative and punishing to those who stray from the expected pro-Russian narrative.

Now, she DID quit on-air, which might explain how she was able to get away with it, but the discrepancies I mentioned earlier are all still there:

1) On one side, you’ve got Russia Today, a news organization funded and founded by the Russian government, that spends most of its time criticizing the U.S. for being imperialistic and abusing citizen rights.

2) But on the other hand, you’ve got the Russian government being imperialistic and abusing citizen rights (i.e.: invading Ukraine, gay rights abuses, etc.).

What’s going on here?

My view is that both America and Russa are imperialistic governments.

They are both fighting for power.

Russia uses RT to weaken America’s reputation in the eyes of its own citizens by constantly criticizing the American government for imperialism and citizen rights abuses (all while Russia commits the exact same abuses in its own country).

But you know what, I guess I can’t blame Russia for not only invading Ukraine, but also playing this geopolitical chess match with the U.S., and here’s why:

Earlier today I tweeted this:

This is what I think is going on: it’s simply the geopolitical chess match up to its usual games: the fear of Russia taking over the world, gives way to the U.S. preemptively seeking to take over the world before Russia does it.

And vice versa: the fear of the U.S. taking over the world, gives way to Russia preemptively seeking to take over the world before the U.S. does it.

It’s human fear at its finest: because we are afraid to be REAL and VULNERABLE about our desires for peace, cooperation, and connection, we choose to put up fronts and defenses, creating WALLS between us and others, as a defense to prevent against what we think might be an attack.

The most courageous thing to do in war, is to put down the sword, approach your “enemy” with open arms, and embrace them.

8

But the fear that such an embrace–such a VULNERABLE stance, will result in the enemy USING that vulnerability to kill us, keeps us from doing so.

But always remember: TRUE COURAGE is not found in arrogant, defensive refusals to be honest about our thirst for love and connection.

Instead, TRUE COURAGE is found in your willingness to make yourself VULNERABLE, putting down the shield, and being the first one to step forward with nothing but pure fearless love, for your “enemy”.

As above, so below: the geopolitical, fear-based, cowardly chess match between the U.S. and Russia, is nothing more than a reflection of the geopolitical, fear-based, cowardly chess match between you, and your neighbors, between you, and your family, between you, and your coworkers.
