Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington Has Been At War For 16 Years: Why?

Washington Has Been At War For 16 Years: Why?:

By Paul Craig Roberts

For sixteen years the US has been at war in the Middle East and North Africa, running up trillions of dollars in expenses, committing untold war crimes, and sending millions of war refugees to burden Europe, while simultaneously claiming that Washington cannot afford its Social Security and Medicare obligations or to fund a national health service like every civilized country has.

Considering the enormous social needs that cannot be met because of the massive cost of these orchestrated wars, one would think that the American people would be asking questions about the purpose of these wars. What is being achieved at such enormous costs? Domestic needs are neglected so that the military/security complex can grow fat on war profits.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Support Your Website

Posted this article to remind my readers that Infinite Unknown also needs support.

So far there have been 3 donations in June.

If the alternative media is not getting support from all those who know that its survival is depending on donations, then the alternative media will disappear.

Support Your Website:

by Paul Craig Roberts

Dear Friends:

This website exists because of you. You called me out of retirement. We made a deal that you would support the website. And you have. Voluntary monthly subscriptions now exceed in number the responses to my quarterly call for donations.

Part of this is due to growth in the signups for monthly donations. But part is due to decline in the response to my quarterly requests.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: The World Is Going Down With Trump

“Why has Trump disarmed himself with an administration chosen by Russiaphobes and Israel?

Well, Trump has ARMED himself with an administration chosen by Russiaphobes and Israel, just like Killary Rotten Clinton would have done.

The World Is Going Down With Trump:

This is your site. Support it.

On June 21 the editorial board of the Washington Post, long a propaganda instrument believed to be in cahoots with the CIA and the deep state, called for more sanctions and more pressure on Russia.

One second’s thought is sufficient to realize how bad this advice is. The orchestrated demonization of Russia and its president began in the late summer of 2013 when the British Parliament and Russian diplomacy blocked the neoconned Obama regime’s planned invasion of Syria. An example had to be made of Russia before other countries began standing up to Washington. While the Russians were focused on the Sochi Olympic Games, Washington staged a coup in Ukraine, replacing the elected democratic government with a gang of Banderite neo-nazi thugs whose forebears fought for Hitler in World War II. Washington claimed it had brought democracy to Ukraine by putting neo-nazi thugs in control of the government.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: The Digital Revolution Is A Catastrophe

The Digital Revolution Is A Catastrophe:

Why did the US National Security Agency develop a hacking tool to install malware? Why is the US Security agency so incompetent that it could not prevent itself from being hacked and the tool stolen and used against 12 countries?

The digital revolution is proving to be a nightmare. The digital revolution has destroyed privacy and has made all information and all persons insecure.

The costs of the digital revolution exceed its benefits by many times. The digital revolution rivals nuclear weapons as the most catastrophic technology of our time.

Sauron Rules In Washington:

“The problem is that the world has listened to Americans for far too bloody long.” – Dr. Julian Osborne, from the 2000 film version of Nevil Shute’s 1957 book, On the Beach

A reader asked why neoconservatives push toward nuclear war when there can be no winners. If all die, what is the point?

The answer is that the neoconservatives believe that the US can win at minimum and perhaps zero damage.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: American Democracy Is “A Dead Man Walking”

American Democracy: A Dead Man Walking:

By Paul Craig Roberts

Trump’s “sell-out,” as it is called, coming on top of Obama’s eight-year “sell-out,” is instructive. We have now had a Democratic president who sold out the people who elected him and a Republican president who has done the same thing. This is a very interesting point, the meaning of which most people miss.

But not Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin. At the Valdai discussion club, Putin summed up Western democracy, which I paraphrase as follows:

In the West, voters cannot change policies through elections, because the ruling elites control whoever is elected. Elections give the appearance of democracy, but voting does not change the policies that favor war and the elites. Therefore, the will of the people is impotent.

People are experiencing that they and their votes have no influence on the conduct of affairs of the country. This makes them afraid, frusrated, and angry, a combination of emotions that is dangerous to the ruling elite, who in response organize the powers of the state against the people, while urging them with propaganda to support more wars.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China – #WW3

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China:

By Paul Craig Roberts

Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.

In previous posts in recent years I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington’s demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion.

It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Is That Armageddon Over The Horizon?

Is That Armageddon Over The Horizon?:

By Paul Craig Roberts

The insouciance of the Western world is extraordinary. It is not only Americans who permit themselves to be brainwashed by CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times and Washington Post, but also their counterparts in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan, who rely on the war propaganda machine that poses as a media. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39573526

The Western “leaders,” that is, the puppets on the end of the strings pulled by the powerful private interest groups and the Deep State, are just as insouciant. Trump and his counterparts in the American Empire must be unaware that they are provoking war with Russia and China, or else they are psychopaths.

A new White House Fool has replaced the old fool. The New Fool has sent his Secretary of State to Russia. For what? To deliver an ultimatum? To make more false accusations? To apologize for the lies?

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: “The United States Stands Before The World As A Criminal Nation”

The United States Stands Before The World As A Criminal Nation

Washington has murdered entire countries in whole or part: Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Yemen, parts of Syria and Pakistan. Millions of Muslim peoples have been killed, maimed, orphaned, and dislocated. The dispossessed and dislocated are filling up the American Empire that destroyed their lives. The American genocide of nations has had the full support of “Western civilization” and the print and TV media of Western journalism. Every transparent lie out of Washington’s mouth has been repeated by European, Canadian, and Austrailian heads of state and by the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NPR and all the rest of the presstitutes of the Western world.

Trump is the fourth US president in a row who takes refuge in blatant lies as his justification for war crimes. The Western world has chosen lies and rejected truth.

The Left Is Self-Destructing — Paul Craig Roberts:

The mindlessness is unbearable.

Amnesty International tells us that we must “fight the Muslim ban” because Trump’s bigotry is wrecking lives.

Anthony Dimaggio at CounterPunch says Trump should be impeached because his Islamophobia is a threat to the Constitution.

This is not to single out these two as the mindlessness is everywhere among those whose worldview is defined by Identity Politics.

Kremlin to Consider Granting Citizenship to Ex-US Treasury Assistant Secretary Read more: https://sputniknews.com/russia/201611301048014895-citizenship-kremlin-us-secretary/

Kremlin to Consider Granting Citizenship to Ex-US Treasury Assistant Secretary:

The Kremlin is ready to consider the issue of granting the Russian citizenship to Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, if he were to file a corresponding application, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier this week, Roberts asked Russian President Vladimir Putin in an open letter for a Russian passport. The official reminded that Putin had granted citizenship to Steven Seagal, expressing hope that “being a Russian agent is as important as teaching martial arts to Russians.” “A corresponding application needs to be filed in order to receive citizenship. It will be considered if it is filed,” Peskov told RIA Novosti.

“Governments Are Running Out Of Excuses” Paul Craig Roberts Exposes “The Western War On Truth”

“Governments Are Running Out Of Excuses” Paul Craig Roberts Exposes “The Western War On Truth”:

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

The “war on terror” has simultaneously been a war on truth. For fifteen years—from 9/11 to Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” and “al Qaeda connections,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” endless lies about Gadaffi, “Russian invasion of Ukraine”—the governments of the so-called Western democracies have found it essential to align themselves firmly with lies in order to pursue their agendas. Now these Western governments are attempting to discredit the truthtellers who challenge their lies.

Russian news services are under attack from the EU and Western presstitutes as purveyors of “fake news.Abiding by its Washington master’s orders, the EU actually passed a resolution against Russian media for not following Washington’s line. Russian President Putin said that the resolution is a “visible sign of degradation of Western society’s idea of democracy.”

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Rigged Elections Are An American Tradition

Rigged Elections Are An American Tradition — Paul Craig Roberts:

Do Americans have a memory? I sometimes wonder.

It is an obvious fact that the oligarchic One Percent have anointed Hillary, despite her myriad problems to be President of the US. There are reports that her staff are already moving into their White House offices. This much confidence before the vote does suggest that the skids have been greased.

The current cause celebre against Trump is his conditional statement that he might not accept the election results if they appear to have been rigged. The presstitutes immediately jumped on him for “discrediting American democracy” and for “breaking American tradition of accepting the people’s will.”

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: How Long Can Economic Reality Be Ignored?

H/t reader squodgy:

“Bankers create “MONEY” from the air.
It is invisible.
They take your possessions and “LEND” you a lesser percentage against that, based on THEIR INVISIBLE CURRENCY.
THEY WIN…YOU LOSE.
Every now and again their greed for wealth and power corrupts them.
The decades of ‘LENDING’ invisible money gets too big.
It becomes ‘UNPAYABLE” and must lead to BAD DEBT or ‘DEFAULT’.
That is wgere we are now.
All Governments have overspent & borrowed.
All Banks have lent money from thin air to fund the Government spending.
It cannot continue because it is not sustainable.
Hence….”

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

How Long Can Economic Reality Be Ignored?

Trump and Clinton have come out with the obligatory “economic plans.”  Neither them nor their advisors, have any idea about what really needs to be done, but this is of no concern to the media.

The presstitutes operate according to “pay and say.”  They say what they are paid to say and that is whatever serves the corporations and the government.  This means that the presstitutes like Hitlery’s economic plan and do not like Trump’s.

Yesterday I listened to the NPR presstitutes say how Trump pretends to be in favor of free trade but really is against it, because he is against all the free trade agreements such as NAFTA, the Trans-Pacific and Trans-Atlantic partnerships.  The presstitutes don’t know that these are not trade agreements.  NAFTA is a “give away American jobs” agreement, and the so-called partnerships give away the sovereignty of countries in order to award global corporations immunity from laws.

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY NO LONGER EXISTS:

And an orchestrated war with Russia has all of us marked for extinction

Paul Craig Roberts

The Democratic Party that once was concerned with workers’ rights, the elderly, civil rights, and the constitutional protections of America liberty no longer exists. As the just completed Democratic presidential primaries and the Democratic presidential convention have clearly demonstrated, the United States now has two Republican parties in service to the One Percent.

The organized Democrats–the Democratic National Committee–have shown themselves to be even more venal and corrupt than the Republicans. Leaked emails document that the Democratic National Committee conspired with the Hillary campaign in order to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. It is clear that Sanders was the choice of Democratic Party voters for president, but the nomination was stolen from him by vote fraud and dirty tricks.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington Launches Its Attack Against BRICS

He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

Washington Launches Its Attack Against BRICS — Paul Craig Roberts:

Having removed the reformist President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Washington is now disposing of the reformist President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff.

Washington used a federal judge to order Argentina to sacrifice its debt restructuring program in order to pay US vulture funds the full value of defaulted Argentine bonds that the vulture funds had bought for a few pennies on the dollar. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/27/us-vulture-funds-argentina-bankruptcy These vultures were called “creditors” who had made “loans” regardless of the fact that they were not creditors and had made no loans. They were opportunists after easy money and were used by Washington to get rid of a reformist government.
