Max Keiser Deletes Pro-Russia Tweets, Quits Russia Today

Max Keiser has quit Keiser Report, he and his wife and co-host Stacy Herbert announced via Twitter late Monday. The announcement was in response to fans’ queries after European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen declared that the European Union will be banning state-owned news outlet Sputnik and TV network Russia Today where Keiser Report airs.

Keiser, once called “mischievously seditious” by The Independent, has hosted the 30-minute program with Herbert since 2009. The financial analysis show ran three episodes each week, with the most recent one airing on February 24th, the day Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine.  

The Associated Press, the outfit producing the show, has yet to make a comment.

Less than a day before Keiser and Herbert’s announcement, CryptoWhale called out Keiser for deleting 1,500+ pro-Russia tweets where he criticized Ukraine and repeatedly called the war a hoax. CryptoWhale states the tweets have been uploaded on the blockchain, where they can “live forever.”

A Shrinking Propaganda Machine

CNN reports that TV carriers around the world have started removing Russia Today from their channel lineup, and social media companies TikTok, and Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, have announced on Monday that they have moved to block Russia Today in Europe.

These measures will diminish the reach and influence of state-controlled media and impact the Kremlin’s ability to create and peddle their narrative.

Reuters recently reported that staff of Ruptly, a Berlin-based Russian state-controlled news agency, have started an exodus.

Employees of the news agency were reportedly being prevented from “describing the invasion as such.” Russia has cautioned local media on terminology, as they continue to claim that its military deployment in Ukraine is a “special operation.”

An unnamed staff member shared that “everyone is off sick or has resigned.” On Monday, LinkedIn listed 125 people currently employed by Ruptly in Germany.

According to the Reuters report, a page profiling 26 senior staff had been removed from the website on Monday, but the page remains accessible on an archive site.

      Keiser was right about Putin being the only adult in the room, too bad he lost the courage of his convictions when the going got tough. I’ve enjoyed watching Keiser report for years, although less so since it became all Bitcoin all the time. Don’t blame Putin for this war, blame Vickie Neuland and the Obama administration for orchestrating the Ukrainian coup in 2014. Putin is doing what he thinks he must to prevent the godless evil west from destroying Russia.

        Well said. NATO-Zio-America is honing in on its next victim. Putin saw that handwriting on the wall. The creeping, decades-long expansion of NATO towards Russia is the undeniable evidence. And the fact that the Biden regime just sent $40 billion to the Zelensky tells us all we need to know about Washington’s love of ‘democracy’. Total hogwash. America should resume protecting its own borders, not Ukraine’s. Long live Russia!

        Yes unfortunately Max’s spine couldn’t withstand the political winds that began to howl. His program offered an alternate viewpoint in the world of economics. I will miss him and Stacy for that. The banning of all RT’s programming will be a loss to many of us residing in the land of the wicked witch of the west. What a breath of fresh air much of the programming was.

        Putin in contrast to the cartoonish buffoons of the west presents a rational well thought out approach to foreign policy. And above all he has the courage to make the most inhumanly difficult decisions while talking it all in stride. I will not blame Putin if a full scale thermonuclear war results, but Sleepy Joe, and Boris (bad hair day every day) Johnson for that catastrophic event. The frenzied driving need for hegemonic control of the planet with capitalism as its vehicle will be to blame for homo sapiens joining the long list of extinct species. We will never meet again! https://youtu.be/15YgdrhrCM8

        So few people have the brains to see what’s right in front of them.. When they come to learn that nobody lies and propagandizes to their people and the people of the world at large more than the USA, and then accept that, and then eventually know that to be true, then sanity may return. Until then, the dumbed down, in both words and acts, is destroying humanity. Thanks for jumping the ship, Max.

        Max backed the wrong horse. Putin will forgive him. Not sure I will.

    The World’s VPNs are suffocated by users accessing the RT worldwide. Your censorship shall not stop us from searching the truth which is not on the side of Western hypocrites that have started a war in Ukraine.

    Censorship is never right. We are adult enough to view various news programs and decipher the truth ourselves. The first casualty of war is always the truth.

    So much for a free press and divergent views. Remember the “fairness doctrine” the reagon got rid of so he and the following presidents could control the media.! Of course, we have all heard about the 14000 Russians that the Ukranians have killed over the last 10 years, because the eastern half of the Ukranine wants to rejoin Russia.

    Another one who hunts with the hounds and runs with the hares. Very, very disappointed with Keyser’s feeble attitude. Won’t be looking elsewhere to find him. Us English have a word for people like him. I’m sure the Americans may do, too.

    Good riddance. I found his program on RT boring and one sided. It was just a non stop propaganda session for Bitcoin. Max Keiser has gone and so will Bitcoin. I never understood why RT allowed him to use their platform to promote this Ponzi scheme scam.

    Banning any type of news…is this not communism in it’s most raw form. Are we not a free nation that can exercise our choice and our right to choose. This in itself is a disgrace to everyone who has fought and died for our freedoms. Yet this goes so easily overlooked. What next…..who cares …GOD help us. Ironically I’m not even the religious type
