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

Tyler Durden's picture

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.”

As George Orwell predicted, telling the truth is now regarded by Western “democratic” governments as a hostile act. A brand new website, propornot.com, has just made its appearance condemning a list of 200 Internet websites that provide news and views at variance with the presstitute media that serves the governments’ agendas. Does propornot.com’s funding come from the CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy, George Soros?

I am proud to say that paulcraigroberts.org is on the list.

In the West those who disagree with the murderous and reckless policies of public officials are demonized as “Russian agents.” The president-elect of the United States himself has been designated a “Russian agent.”

This scheme to redefine truthtellers as propagandists has backfired. The effort to discredit truthtellers has instead produced a catalogue of websites where reliable information can be found, and readers are flocking to the sites on the list. Moreover, the effort to discredit truthtellers shows that Western governments and their presstitutes are intolerant of truth and diverse opinion and are committed to forcing people to accept self-serving government lies as truth.

Clearly, Western governments and Western media have no respect for truth, so how can the West possibly be democratic?

The presstitute Washington Post played its assigned role in the claim promoted by Washington that the alternative media consists of Russian agents. Craig Timberg, who appears devoid of integrity or intelligence, and perhaps both, is the WaPo stooge who reported the fake news that “two teams of independent researchers” - none of whom are identified - found that the Russians exploited my gullibility, that of CounterPunch, Professor Michel Chossudosky of Global Researh, Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell, Justin Raimondo and that of 194 other websites to help “an insurgent candidate” (Trump) “claim the White House.”

Note the term applied to Trump - “insurgent candidate.” That tells you all you need to know. You can read here what passes as “reliable reporting” in the presstitute Washington Post, and here.

Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, which somehow escaped inclusion in The 200, unloads on Timberg and the Washington Post here.

Western governments are running out of excuses. Since the Clinton regime, the accumulation of war crimes committed by Western governments exceed those of Nazi Germany. Millions of Muslims have been slaughtered, dislocated, and dispossessed in seven countries. Not a single Western war criminal has been held accountable.

The despicable Washington Post is a prime apologist for these war criminals. The entire Western print and TV media is so heavily implicated in the worst war crimes in human history that, if justice ever happens, the presstitutes will stand in the dock with the Clintons, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Obama and their neocon operatives or handlers as the case may be.

These days its unclear what is a credible and what is not. Too much "fake news" out there. MSM is trying to censor everything they don't like.

That artwork at the bottom by a poster, How does Podesta figure in that? He made those pictures, or has that artwork in his house? 

Seems a little more than an accusation is required there.

Controlling the world's sources of news , Jews can always prepare the minds of people for their next move . The greatest exposure yet to be made is the way that news is manufactured and the way in which the mind of whole nations is melded for a purpose . When the powerful Jew is at last traced and his hand revealed, then comes the ready cry of persecution and it echoes through the world's press. The real causes of the persecution ( which is the oppression of the people by the financial practices of the Jews) are never given publicity . Henry Ford .
By backing these parasites and not speaking out against them with truth only furthers their agenda , learn your history not from the books written by Jewish liars and decievers !

The Allies, not the Nazis, committed war crimes. The German work camps were visited regularly by the Red Cross. The Red Cross was not allowed into American camps for Germans. More Germans died after the war than during it.

War on poverty

Poverty wins.

War on illiteracy

Illiteracy wins.

War on drugs

Drugs win.

War on terror

Terror wins.

Now, War on Truth

It ain't over yet, but I think truth just turned back the Wehrmacht of Lies at Stalingrad.

Pulp Culture's picture

Based the gov's success in fighting poverty, illiteracy, drugs and terror. I think truth will win.

Well to be fair given the governments track record on "wars on (fill in the blank)" if they ever declared a war on truth the truth would be running out of both ears of every man woman and child in this country sooo... bring it.

Since war seems to reliably create more of what its meant to fight, a war on truth would be a good thing!

The US has not won a war it has been in since the end of War World II. Take heart that it will not win the war on truth either and at this point there are more of us than there are of them. We just need to drop a few truth bombs into the inner cities of the country where its getting physical over lies.

Escapeclaws's picture

In a very real sense the US lost in WWII. She dropped the atomic bomb on innocent civilians and thereby lost her soul.

I see constant comments of how msm is nothing but lies.. I fully acknowledge that they are highly biased/opinionated but I don't think there have been many verifiably provable false articles.

I think there are a lot of cases out there of outlandish fake stories and false statements though, think pizzagate, clinton murders, millions of voter fraudsters, deadly blood clots, Soros directly funding protests, etc. There are no facts, just conspiracies and self reinforcing posters convincing themselves and other posters. Those are the problem.

And before the mindless mudslinging that has become common here in that last few years; I know, I'm a "sheeple" or whatever, but really who is more of a sheeple someone who is willing to post something contrary or someone who simply posts the same reinforcing statement everyone else on ZH posts.

fbazzrea's picture

but I don't think there have been many verifiably provable false articles.

i'll ask Hitlery to get a receipt for her next hitman. voter fraud? Greenie Steinie thinks so.

don't want to scare you, but blood clots are deadly. and EVERY one knows Soros is funding the protests.

what's the problem again? not their despicable acts? or lack of proof? ever wonder what the difference was between a thug and a politician? thug was caught broke.

here's a star for being "willing to post something contrary."

and i'll take one off my paper for posting "the same reinforcing statement..."

but when AG Sessions gets done with Hitlery and her posse, we'll reverse. deal? 


double.nan's picture

Thanks for the gold star... If the Attorney General sessions take place and find Hitlery guilty, then I'm pretty sure the MSM will report that accurately.

If I understand you correctly, in order for the MSM to be deemed 'honest' they would need to properly predict the outcome of the potential AG trial? Again, confusing prediction with the fact-based element of reporting.

"If the Attorney General sessions take place and find Hitlery guilty, then I'm pretty sure the MSM will report that accurately."

WTF does that mean? Jeff Sessions is going to "take place" and somehow "find Hitlery guilty"? You're obviously retarded.

bloofer's picture

The MSM has been discrediting itself for decades. Examples that should be fresh in the memories of most here are the MSM's treatment of the financial and real estate crises. Alternative media raised warnings about these for years in advance of 2008--and was ridiculed by the MSM. 

After events played out, the MSM story was "whocouldanode?". "No one could have foreseen this"--though it was forseen by alternative media for YEARS, while the MSM spent year lying about these incipient crises. 

I think others here could multiply examples.

double.nan's picture

I would agree that anyone who listens to MSM for investment/predictive analysis is asking to be on the wrong side or, at best, late to the game. But I go back to the distinction that bad predictions are not false statements.... What has happened is MSM has gotten so caught up on opinion pieces and predictive analysis that it's discredited them to the point that people don't trust the facts either... But thos are distinctly different. Anyways, I would love to see multiple examples..


newdoobie's picture

Haven't you ever been to a news worthy event? I can't tell you how many I participated in or was interviewed by news people. I watch the news later and they get the story wrong. I was misquoted so many times, I quit talking to the papers and TV reporters. I thought giving them printed 'fact sheets' would help but they misquoted the fact sheets to put out their own story. The other reps I worked around just laughed at my naivete.

If the facts don't back up the story, the facts will be changed.

" I don't think there have been many verifiably provable false articles."

Then there's no hope for you. If you've been reading here for the last few years and still have never seen any provably false articles, then you're willfully ignoring any evidence presented, or you don't know how to access source material.

In case you didn't know, articles, and even the comments here, often have little sections of text of a different color (blue on my browser) which are actually hyperlinks to source materials. If you'd just put your pointer on one of them and click your left mouse button, you could read some proof of what you assume are just "outlandish fake stories and false statements".

The Western Oligarchies are out of minds-and consequently, ideas.

They continue to hold the 21st century hostage-primarily through surveillance- to 19th and 20th century ideas, goal, illusions and the institutions attempting to perpetuate this charade.

All the debt of the West is a measure of the cost to the world of trying to resist a multi-polar, horizontally communicated and mediated world-independent of MOST legacy institutions.

It's way past time for some people to grow up. The military-industrial-banking complexes that created a hell-on-earth 20th century genocide throughout the world are exhausted. Frankly nobody buys their shit any longer.
