Exiled editor Mark Ames went on RT’s “The Alyona Show” on Wednesday to spread his message of hopelessness, so long as America remains in the grip of a failed oligarchy and their failed free-market ideology. Watch the clip here:

    We have RT on all day at work. Whoever writes the headlines for that channel should be shot.

  • 2. Duarte Guerreiro  |  September 10th, 2011 at 12:08 am

    No, thank you Alyona! I know some Anons who will be jelly tonight.

    Mark, watch your weight, you’re starting to get a Middle America potato face. As an artist, I demand an aesthetically pleasing supreme leader!

    THE ALMIGHTY EXILED MODERATOR SPEAKS: Yea, I shall not improve this comment from the mentally-handi-capable alliance of Jim GoadJoel B. PollakAndrew Breitbart, for this comment is too mentally-handicapable to improve, and yea, this comment is too delicious to let go to waste. Behold, the new strategy of Joel B. Pollak-Jim Goad-Andrew Breitbart, for it is a doozy, saith I:

    Nice one, Mark. I completely agree with what you say about the banks being corrupt, too powerful, manipulating and ruining our country. But why are you on Russia Today puckering up to the Kremlin?

    Didn’t RT’s boss (The Kremlin) kick your butt out of Russia? You didn’t “return” so much from Russia, as you put it, in 2008 as get run out for finally pissing off the wrong people, the same people in charge today. I remember; I donated.

    Are you attempting to get back in the Kremlin’s good books by going on RT and claiming that this is a zionist conspiracy led by the same “people” who ruled Russia in the 90’s? I assume you are referring to Jewish Oligarchs?

    If so that is a pretty good idea, because it plays right into Russia’s more populist, xenophobic and anti-semetic beliefs.

    However, tread carefully, because once these bloggers at Breitbart catch wind, they will lable you an Anti-Semite and you will have the door closed ass-cold on you by Ratigan and all your new friends at MSNBC. By the time that happens you better have already gone full Kim Philby double-razvedchik style

    In any case, I hope this means you’ll be back in Russia soon under a new United Russia and totalitarian bulletproof “Krisha,” instead of working on your TV career on shitty American cable news networks.

    The Exile is still mankind’s only hope!

    Ames: Did you tap it after the show?

  • 5. John Drinkwater  |  September 10th, 2011 at 8:39 am

    This was bound to happen. I actually watch The Alyona Show on an almost daily basis. She’s smarter than Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Keith Olbermann, Ed Schultz and the latest retard on the scene Al Sharpton. Dump those stupid fucks and hire Alyona Minkovski.

  • 6. Michal  |  September 10th, 2011 at 8:41 am

    I gagged a little when I saw it’s RT.

  • 7. GCahn  |  September 10th, 2011 at 8:42 am

    The jig is up,the emperor has no clothes. Mark is right, the “experts” have no clue what they’re doing or how to fix things. It’s been obvious for years that the politicians in Washington have no clue. Now its clear that the experts that they’ve been relying on also have no clue. The old paradigms do not give direction of how to move forward. If anyone is interested, I know a NASA scientist that knows the basis for the new paradigm that will lead us out of the wilderness. We will be glad to share it with anyone that will shut up and listen.

  • 8. Tyler  |  September 10th, 2011 at 11:42 am

    Ames, you should commission a painting by this Alex Schafer for the cover of your next book.

  • 9. Cum  |  September 10th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Who cares if it’s RT, Ames is fighting against the domestic oligarchy’s propaganda machine so he should use the foreign oligarchy’s propaganda machine if he needs to. When it comes to problems with America, RT is actually going to offer far more incisive and accurate commentaries than most domestic mainstream media outlets.

    Kinda like how Al Jazeera E won’t be the most objective when it comes to Libya but you can expect some sharp journalism when it comes to Israel. You just have to know which issues that certain outlets are good for.

    To Ames/Comment Overlord: Now stop shitting on pot smokers we read your website too :). It’s the fucking money-hungry for-profit capitalist assholes who are ruining the medical marijuana industry from the management/ownership side, and weirdo anti-tax tea party libertarian states rights activists who have infiltrated the movement. Patients get fucked. Some decent smaller growers get fucked too, while the industrialized semi-corporate ops rake in the cash.

  • 10. Martin Finnucane  |  September 10th, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Ames more or less said: “America is a first world country ruled by a third world, banana-republic elite.” That is clarity, folks. And correct. Let’s us fat, in-debt losers make this a motto.

  • 11. ☭ mouse ☭  |  September 10th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    @6 whats wrong with RT? I know they are state sponsored, but thats better than the self-censoring US main stream media

    Id trust RT’s bullshit before I would listen to CNN or whoever

  • 12. Bane  |  September 11th, 2011 at 3:46 am

  • 13. A-Lex  |  September 12th, 2011 at 7:26 am

    Yeah, Russia critics like to point out that RT is state-sponsored, but they never see it as a problem with BBC…

  • 14. Tyler  |  September 12th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    That’s a good point 13.

    BBC World however just takes the happy touchy feely position on everything. It’s either how the emerging markets are booming or poverty/disaster porn a la Bob Geldoff on that channel. There isn’t much time substance or actual editorial on BBC World. It’s the baby food of news. Easy for anyone to digest.

    I enjoy RTs openly biased pro kremlin opinion. I just wish they would go even further and actually say the type of stuff the write in Russian papers.

    Still, I think Mark shouldnt have given RT such an easy pass. Sure, Russia had oligarchs in the 90s. But he made it seem like they don’t now. There was your chance to say on RT, “The banks are the corrupt evil super power cab ale that rules America, just like the FSB does today in Russia. Imstead he takes a pot shot at guys that are already long gone.

    Some day I’ll learn how to spell “imstead” correctly, but until then, I’ll just dole out worthless retarded advice about how everyone needs to be balanced because a balanced diet is the best way to start your day.

  • 15. Mad Props  |  September 13th, 2011 at 7:17 am

    there is no such thing as an oligarchy that does not fail

    the existence of such is itself a failure condition

  • 16. Tyler  |  September 13th, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    Sorry about my shitty spelling, Exile Moderator. Typing on an Ipad is a bitch.

    It looks like I’m still retarded enough to push the only attack that’s better than the “Johnny Chen Conspiracy” and that is–you won’t believe it, but you better, because oh baby it’s a-comin–that The eXiled is both a terrorist organization and anti-semitic. Totally unlike Gavin “White Supremacist” McInnes and Jim “Anti-Semite Imprisoned For Breaking His Girlfriend’s Skull And Biting Her Thumb” Goad.

  • 17. Tyler  |  September 13th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    Retarded as I may be, I am definitely on the side of The Exile and verily not on the side of any Libertards and Tea Baggers.

    It hurts my delicate ego to be so reprimanded by my heroes.

  • 18. Adam  |  September 14th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Don’t take it personally, Tyler. The tongue, as washington Irving said, is the only tool which gets sharper with use; and by god, the man needs to make sure it can cut like a rapier. anyone wandering into his practice grounds must be prepared to withstand a few swipes and stabs.

  • 19. A-Lex  |  September 15th, 2011 at 3:07 am

    I wouldn’t really regard BBC World as such a vegetarian, not by a long shot. What’s with their coverage of the Russo-Georgian war in 2008, when they were running images of the South Ossetian capital Tskhinvali (leveled by Georgians) for three straight days, claiming it to be the Georgian Tbilisi (allegedly leveled by Russians, who didn’t even march on it). Balanced reporting my ass.

    And on the whole — concentrate real hard and tell me, when was the last time they ran anything not-negative on Russia?

  • 20. Tyler  |  September 15th, 2011 at 5:28 am


    No argument there. The BBC and The Economist appear to write the same news story, with regard to Russia, no matter what happens. It is almost always a rant against Putin/Medvedev. Their coverage of the Georgian War was entirely one sided in favor of Georgia.

    It’s interesting because Russia is pretty much the only BRIC/Emerging market country that I ever see the BBC or The Economist criticize openly. Even the worst places in Africa get talked up on BBC world for all their fantastic potential in the lovey-dovey poverty porn specials.

    I used to work in Russia and now live in India and so I have noticed just how much the sun appears to shine out of the corrupt smelly ass of the Indian economy according to the BBC and the Economist. I partially believe this is because these agencies are afraid to lose the Indian market or get booted out, which they will if they ever so much as even try to write something critical about India here. I even know the chick who reports for the BBC here and called her on it. She wasn’t amused.

    I guess the BBC World just don’t care about burning bridges with Russia because nobody there is gonna watch their lame broadcast anyway.

    Next time Mark should not listen to anything I say or link to anything I try linking to

  • 22. Rehmat  |  September 22nd, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I have watched a belly
