ER Editor: And the information below is brought to you by … RT!
We believe this is using the conflict in Ukraine to quash Europeans’ access to alternative information (Germany banned 64 Telegram channels earlier) just as the conflict is being used to crash the EU economy even more. Great Reset anyone? It inches forward. See Tom Luongo’s piece we just published on the DELIBERATE crashing of the European economy: EU Sanctions On Russia Equal “Suicide By Cop”
This is about European citizens, not Russia, which can easily withstand any number of sanctions levelled against it. The sanctions playbook has been so overused historically by the US and Europe that Putin worked hard to find ways around it, including the likelihood of being cut out of the SWIFT system. He’s known to credit relentless sanctions with forcing Russia to find alternative methods for trade, commerce and manufacturing, thereby strengthening the country. Go figure.
The tyranny on us that could not find enough justification through ‘Covid’ finds it through the Ukraine situation.
We remind readers that EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has a history of dubious dealings and conflicts of interest, including conniving (deliberate choice of word) with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla to negotiate vaccine contracts, where the substance of the contracts have been so heavily redacted as to be unreadable, where she has refused to yield up to public scrutiny her private text messages with him.

EU to ban RT and Sputnik
European Commission president announces bloc-wide ban on Russian media outlets
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced on Sunday that the EU will ban the Russian media outlets RT and Sputnik accusing them of spreading “harmful disinformation.” She did not specify whether this ban will apply solely to television broadcasts, or whether RT and Sputnik’s websites will be affected.
In what she called an “unprecedented” step, von der Leyen announced that “we will ban in the European Union the Kremlin’s media machine.”
“The state owned Russia Today and Sputnik, as well as their subsidiaries, will no longer be able to spread their lies to justify Putin’s war and to sow division in our union,” she continued. “We are developing tools to ban toxic and harmful disinformation in Europe.”
Von der Leyen’s move comes a day after the Association of European Journalists called on the EU to implement a bloc-wide ban on RT, and have its journalists “removed.” It also comes several days after the EU sanctioned RT’s editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan.
Simonyan responded to the latest ban by declaring that “not a single person who faithfully worked and continues to work for us will be laid off in any country.”
We know how to do our job in the conditions of bans. These freedom-loving people have been preparing us for this for eight years.
RT has previously faced censorship in Europe, with German regulators banning its German-language channel earlier this month. More recently, Google subsidiary YouTube and Facebook parent company Meta demonetized RT’s accounts on Saturday, while Google blocked downloads of RT’s app on Ukrainian territory earlier on Sunday.
Immediately before announcing the ban on RT and Sputnik, von der Leyen revealed that the EU will also close off its airspace to all Russian aircraft, and will supply Ukraine with weapons.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
