Nice to see the left are getting upset about the words he used (African American ) not P.C you know. Not the fact that there are now slave markets operating in Libya

First time coming across Roger Stone in my internet meanderings and considered him to be highly experienced, wise and erudite particularly of historic US political landscape.

Of particular mannerisms of his persona was the use of his hands in conjunction when expressing his views which were not unlike those of Professor Jordan Peterson and wondered if there is a connection with hand movements assisting in articulating the spoken word.
Boring, I know :)

I think Roger Stone made a slip at 16:15. He said "African Americans" sold as slaves in Libya; I think he just meant Africans.

The first thing Nixon did re the Vietnam war was to ESCALATE the conflict into Cambodia. Meanwhile a war secret even from the US Congress raged in Laos.

The mainstream media, wanting to use Trump to destroy the Republican field covered him 24/7. What they didn't realize is that he convinced many Americans with all that free promotion. By the time that the election came around, most people, not usually polled had made up their minds. The media created the monster, hoping that he would destroy the Republican party, were shocked when he destroyed both.

Great balanced perspective from roger. Refreshingly no waffle or question avoiding. Succinct and pertinent - a class act.

Well done Oxford for not rioting to prevent the free speech of someone whose evidence goes against the mainstream narrative.

Sounds like a con man... He rehashes this statement that Trump is "anti-establishment, different, genuine", but we know this is all just marketing and his presidency has just reinforced the establishment.

This speech captures the mood of the hour so perfectly. Among the top 10 videos on Youtube in 2018. I predict it. I feel that strongly about what Mr. Stone is saying. Roger Stone is absolutely brilliant and should be so much more appreciated, so much more revered. What a great mind, great patriot and great speaker. So polite in the face of obvious bias against him. Thank you, Roger Stone.

Today I watched Roger Stone address the Oxford Union on February 13, 2018.

To the students at Oxford Stone is a relatively unknown and I was curious to see how they would interrogate him in the question & answer period. Roger made a good speech and if you had no personal information about the subject he did well.

Roger claimed that Trump won because many Americans have lost faith in the duopoly of Rep/Dem hegemony in our system. I agree! Our politics have become a skewed game controlled by moneyed interests and politicians are largely unscrupulous in their adhering to their promises and rhetoric after their election. I agree! This is why Trump won but I believe he would not have if opposed by Bernie Sanders. People who wish for a more progressive, science-based, humanitarian government interested in data-driven solutions were faced with the same old, same old or an ignorant rich guy who they viewed as a loose cannon who hated someone they hated. the strong appeal to our ancient Ids won out over the more recent angels of our better nature. Hillary supporters are still venting their harsher natures to me!

Roger used several words and phrases familiar to me as a relatively old voter with emotional content like "front group".

Stone tried to make Assange a fellow traveler which he is not! stone says whether Russians aided is immaterial but clearly, it is not because we have black letter law making such involvement criminal.

In the end, Stone discusses immigration and strong enforcement of borders. He does not mention enforcement of the laws we already have concerning employment of illegals. This is where illegal immigration could be accomplished most effectively and cheapest. Trump and Stone don't go there because that is where the rich don't want them to go. If you enforce the laws against employing illegals you upset their donor base and thus they offer no real alternative to our oligopoly!

Curious... he is being charged essentially with treason...For speaking with Russians...Trying to time when Wikileaks puts out its material...
This will be a first in history if he’s convicted... Hilary was Secretary of State and completely responsible for this classified material... In my estimation she should be charged first with mishandling classified material...She was occupying a position where she was obligated to keep such classified material safe... If you stop and think about it anyone could have gotten that information... Evidence shows that anyone did... completely her fault ...Also it’s really suspicious because the Russians probably didn’t require Roger Stone for anything after she kept classified emails in a public server...

Anyone who has tried to speak coherently for an hour like this, with little or no script, knows how hard it really is. Roger is incredibly articulate and intelligent.
