Paul Craig Roberts Warns "Everything Is Disintegrating"

Tyler Durden's picture

Via The Daily Coin,

Below is a conversation that is unlike any that I have heard before. When preparing for interviews Dave Kranzler and I usually go over what we are going to discuss, how to get the show started and how we will hand off the conversation. It’s a good formula that has served us well. We are very, very grateful Dr. Roberts had other ideas.

Our world, as many of you know, is experiencing massive, unprecedented change at an ever increasing pace. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, is not only one of the foremost economist in the world, but he also has one of the world’s most respected voices covering the geopolitical landscape.

The American people are asleep at the wheel. The blame is not totally their’s, but they do bare the brunt of the blame. The mainstream media does not report what is happening within our economy or the geopolitical arena, unless they can spew on and on about the endless rainbows, unicorns and how “America is the greatest and Putin is the devil.” No depth of coverage, nothing of real value reported, so the American people are left ignorant and wanting for truth. When you work 2 or more part time jobs, are struggling with keeping a roof over your head and the kids need new shoes, it becomes a challenge to seek the truth even though you know the “report” Brian Williams just delivered is a fabricated piece of fantasy. There is almost no truth to be found in the American mainstream media.

One of the best ways to understand what is happening today in places like Syria, Ukraine and the Middle East is to take a step back and see what history has shown. Most all situations in the human experience have roots in the past. As Mark Twain said, “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” that certainly applies to the ever encroaching American police state, the unfolding war in Syria, Ukraine, and the Middle East. Does that sound like world war or is it just me?

What has happened over the past several years in places like Iraq, Libya and Syria have roots in the late 1990’s. The Project for a New American Century, a “think-tank”, founded by Dick Cheney, one of the most die-hard neocons the world has ever seen, developed a plan to invade – that’s right, invade – 7 countries in 5 years. Their plan is taking longer than originally thought, but I am not sure if Russian and Chinese resistance was part of the calculation. The development of al-Queada, that has now morphed into ISIS, has not gone as planned either. ISIS appears to be morphing into their own entity that the CIA is having a hard time controlling. The rogue band of mercenaries are going rogue in a way that was not foreseen.

Dr. Roberts describes the evolution of the “deep state” and how the neocons have a strangle hold on the American political process that is hard to shake. These psychopathic warmongers are not concerned with anything except power, blood-lust and their own sense of “destiny”. The tapestry that Dr. Roberts weaves begins with Nixon, the Vietnam War and winds it’s way through the latest meeting between President Putin and Secretary of State, John Kerry. The picture is clear and details how we have arrived at the brink of nuclear annihilation. The three part series is not to be missed. To get the whole picture you need to listen all the way through. It was intentionally broken into smaller pieces to allow the info to sink in. As I said we are facing a world in change and the pace is quickening. Give this a good listen and let us know what you think.

 As Paul Craig Roberts warns, we are facing a world in change and the pace is quickening.

They are asleep permanently, they are brainwashed.

You can't even get a job if you see the truth.

If you can't prove that you are brainwashed you are exiled to the backwoods.

"Everything Is Disintegrating"

As gubmint salaries, vacation days, pensions - and control of everyone's lives - continues to dramatically increase.

Yeah, the same inending BULLSHIT

Tyler, feel free to admit defeat at any time now


but also feel free to admit you are wrong.

Fat chance.

See what ____ had to say, in his powerful interview! 

clymer's picture

man, I agree with almost everything PCR has to say, but mostly I agree with him about how clueless the American people are. I can count the number of people I know that are actually fully awake on one hand. I work with some very smart people, development and support engineers for a fortune 500 network security company, and I listen to these people talk about their 401K balances, how they should put more in for retirement, how the USA needs Hilary to stand up to Putin, The department manager always defends Obama, how great he is.. I lost any hope that the American people are going to wake up before something very bad happens. long ago (years) I stopped trying to convince anyone of anything. We're fucked.

ali_baba's picture

We are all fucked. A lot of death and destruction in 2016. Nothing left to do but pray for Jesus. I sincerely believe these are the end times.

Ignatius's picture

"Nothing left to do but pray for Jesus."

That's my plan... and I'm not joking.

beemasters's picture

But a good joke, though, I must admit.

nc551's picture

Just remember that old joke... Gist is:  guy on a roof in a flood, refuses rescue, "God will save me", refuses rescue a couple more times, "God will save me", dies and goes to heaven and asks "Why didn't you save me?" and God says "I sent those rescue parties for you!".

Praying might not be a bad plan, but don't give up on practical opportunity.

Ignatius's picture

I didn't say I've done nothing to prepare, but events and life have convinced me that there is a very real spiritual dimension to all of this.  And friend, as our little boat is going over the falls, what other measures do you recommend?

nc551's picture

I agree, I think I took the comment and projected a bit of fatalism on the unsaid.  Whatever you believe, faith would be the recommendation.

Oldwood's picture

American people are asleep? Hell, Humans most everywhere are asleep. PCR, like just about anyone else, from Obama on down speaks truth mixed with misdirection. The world is built on injustice as each of our justices are are own. He wants to quote Marx about the downfall of capitalism and the pitiful state of low paid prostitutes, yet never comments on the great life afforded those in communist countries, those pledged to their collectivist governments. Not even the prostitutes of eastern Europe. He still sees the answer in governance, in the elimination of corruption, a blight that has been with us from the beginning. Socialism or a better run centrally commanded economy will result in no better...and he knows it. He can point to NO government not burdened with corruption. He is totally correct about people being asleep however, as has been our circumstance in perpetuity. We bought cheap foreign goods, we hired illegal aliens, we borrowed massive amounts of money...beyond reason, we demand MOAR from government, not less. But we will never blame ourselves....that and our need for something for nothing is what keeps us circling the drain, regardless of the sacrifices made by our forefathers to break free...from the very beginning. We take our freedoms for granted. We ride on the accomplishments of others, either from our past or our future through the compounding of debt. It is WE that are the problem. The corruption will ultimately collapse upon itself as it is unsustainable, and the cycle continues. Conservative, self preserving principles will return, once all other alternatives are gone. Or maybe not.

"We" is all of humanity of which we are all part of regardless of how much we may reject it, hate it, and ultimately hope for its annihilation.

sonoftx's picture

Very well said Oldwood. I liked much of what I heard but he definitely still believes that one side of the coin is better than the other.

maxwellsdemon's picture

There is an alternative to the stupid materialism of the Ziocon run West or the living in the poverty of a Communist regime and that is a middle way that I believe the Russians are aiming for.  They are  not invading; instead they are building alliances.  Will I give up my present lifestyle to live like the Russians? Yes, to avoid war as the path the US is on is leading only to too definite outcomes; bankruptcy and war.  Obama care is a disaster for the middle class; the debts keep growing while the velocity of money keeps falling.

The powers that run this country know a denoument is coming and that is' why they are seeking out confrontation now, before the West turns into an economic corpse from debt to the banksters.  China is still rising; their government owns the banks and gives two cents about debts as they are able to devalue their way out of it (as they are doing now).  The Chinese don't borrow fiat dollars or euros and can devalue their currency at will without the international banksters demanding whole swaths of Chinese infrastructure in repayment.

Ask yourself which country, the US or China, has had a rising standard of living for the last 20 years? At this point, the Chinese industrial output exceeds the US and China is still growing, albeit slower, say at a 3%-5% rate rather than at a 7% rate, but in 10 years, they will have an industrial output vastly larger than the US.   Russia will grow faster by linking it's economy to the Chinses than to the West.

Oldwood's picture

China's rising industrial output and standard of living is coming at a cost to America and the west who are buying their output. If we had honored our own, rather than every cheap statist monopoly in the world, maybe just maybe we wouldn't be becoming one now.The Chinese standard of living is rising for sure, but just look at it, look at them, look at what they are doing to their environment. Coming from an absolute poverty to where they are now may appear a miracle, but it is simply a transfer of wealth and knowledge.No one can deny almost all of their growth has been based on stolen or coerced technology, massive printing and debt only matched by our own, and an absolute tyrannical government. To compare China to America when it comes to human rights is laughable.....comparing political imprisonment to denial of gay marriage I guess.

Neocon? Sorry, but Dick Cheney is not a jew, unless ZH can produce a link to that.

RonArgent's picture

Apparently at least one ignorant down arrower does not know the meaning of the word neocon,  who coined it, or why.


In short it was a derogatory term  coined by an American socialist to denigrate DEMOCRAT WARMONGERING JEWS. It must be tough going through life being ignorant of the meanings of the  words you use.

Socratic Dog's picture

Language changes, and the meanings of words change.  Replace "democrat jews" with "zionists" and you have the usual present-day meaning of the word.  Warmongering zionists.

Zionism: ….. supports the re-establishment of a Jewish homeland in the territory defined as the historic Land of Israel (roughly corresponding to Palestine, Canaan or the Holy Land).

I looked up the meaning of "Neocon" there was a big picture of Dick Cheney, I didn't need to read the definition.

He is a warpig who profited off the deaths of innocent people.

His karma is so bad, he will be reborn in the next country the USA bombs,

but he won't die easily.

Karma is: If I kill someone then I will be killed, the problem is if it happens

in the next life I won't understand why.

This is universal law.

If I were young with all this going on I would have deep, deep romantic loving sex in an attempt to  transcend this current reality.

It is the Scorpionic death/bonding of losing yourself in another in a magical release that is truly out of this world.

You can do this with anyone who is capable of going all the way with you, maybe easier with someone you are not

living with as that dynamic begins to take on all sorts of other issues. It is in the moment of love, and you are acting out this love which is not personal, it is agape.

Scorpio seeks the highest of the water signs which is Pisces, it paves the way to Pisces which is God and in Scorpio

we practice in bonding with one other for our ultimate goal of merging with our creator.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

I must admit my hopeless attraction to the Zodiac's most misunderstood sign. There is an understanding and bonding between us like no other. Unexplainable. We share the same sensitivity and perceptions.

Water signs are intuitive and sensitive, and we feel more intensely than the rest. We are emotional and nurturing, and like a river, we run deep. How things feel is what matters to us and we base our actions on sense, rather than on logic or intellect.

Water is also about compassion and understanding. Scorpio is represented as a scorpion, a dove and and an eagle. He may waver between these forms but when fully evolved, he attains the eagle and soars above all.

I am honored to have the friendship and respect of several scorpio men though my fish do carry the scars of their stings. They have shown me how to be courageous and look beyond the superficial to find the profound essence of them few will ever be privileged to see.


MissCellany's picture

Whoa...astrology talk on ZH. Whoda thunk it?

Not a Scorpio Sun here, but a natal stellium in the sign (Merc,, Venus, Neptune, and three major asteroids)...and progressed chart currently is triple I'm along for the ride with you, Miffed.

Stellium in Scorp makes you a Plutonian or any Sun or Pluto in the 8th.

Sun square Pluto, moon square Pluto.

So we Plutonians understand each other because we seek the really, real truth.

truth is Pluto.

MissCellany's picture

Yes! Pluto in Virgo here, conjunct Ascendant. I think we Plutonian types are rolling with the current Pluto-in-Cap-square-Uranus upheaval better than most people.

Sun and Moon square Pluto -- is that your own chart?

Chris Dakota's picture
Chris Dakota (not verified) MissCellany Dec 20, 2015 9:24 PM

I have Pluto Leo 12th square to Sun Taurus 9th.

And Moon Sag as the boomerang of a Yod.

So I am the natural mate of Scorpio.

Pluto AC can come off as really controlling and scare

others off that you would like to attract.

Any big Pluto configuration we are able to understand deeper issues

than most people.

We tend to recoil since the masses don't understand what is going on or us.

I have Virgo rising and Virgo rising will make you deeply critical and aware,

which is painful on the level you can see and recall all that is said or occurred and

others mock you.

That's a Virgo thing, to be shamed. Virgo is masochistic and we seek it

because we want to be cleansed through pain and suffering.

I now reject that in a Uranian fashion, I cast it off in the first moment because

I am older and fixed myself I no longer seek it.

I worked for early Verizon and my friend a Scorp was so tough nobody tried it

with her and I learned that I was attracting that energy to me.

Miffed, I think you have been reding my Mom's Jeane Dixon book. Very well written.

Chris Dakota's picture
Chris Dakota (not verified) Miffed Microbiologist Dec 20, 2015 8:26 PM

Scorpio has a sting that is designed to keep all away, but that one...

Scorpio will set up all sorts of traps to all that enter, they let you in one chamber at a time and observe you from a secret window above. When you fail they howl at you "ah ha! I knew you would betray me"

Scorpio seeks that one person who they can finally trust and fuse with, but they betray themselves by not

taking chances to find it.

Scorpio child has been betrayed and set up for this scenario of mistrust.

Often born into a family after a death, or at a time when parents could not afford another child

on any level.

So Scorpio does not trust love, and perverted it can translate into pain is love.

I had an online flirt with a Scorpio man 15 yrs ago that was healing for me and for him

and it was very deep because we were far

far away. He could open up and let go. Pluto asks us to let go and not hold onto the past.

Today we are at the death of the Sun in the longest night before we are reborn in Sagittarius.

But before we can celebrate the birth in Sagittarius we must go through the war in Scorpio, which is

a very personal inner war.

Thanks for asking

I have learned to keep my craft close to the vest because it scares most people.

Beautifully said, Chris D. Thanks.

You're welcome.

This is well said. I found the art of Scorpio dealings is honesty and Love in its purest form. Unconditional, unwavering and True. They never fall for pretense and can see any deception no matter how carefully constructed. Pisces represents personal sacrifice and Empathy. This is why the crucifixion of Christ is often referred as the end of the Age of Pisces. The Ultimate Sacrifice.

To be tested by a Scorpio is extraordinarily painful. And for a Pisces with my moon in Aries squared with Mars, a test of my own personal resolve. I must keep my palms open and not clenched in ferocious anger as I'm so inclined. I must quiet the Ram. But my Sun, Moon and Venus are in the 12 so inner turmoil is a friend of mine.

If one survives the tests, the rewards are indescribable. The closest most genuine friend one could ever have.
