Paul Craig Roberts Exposes "The Conspiracy Against President Trump"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Listening yesterday to the broadcast of testimony by FBI Director Comey and National Security Agency Director Admiral Michael Rogers before the House Intelligence Committee (an oxymoron) made it clear that the Democrats, Comey, and Rogers intend conflict with Russia.

The Republicans, for the most part, were interested to know how security leaks targeted at Trump Republicans came from meetings at which only the CIA Director, NSA Director, and FBI director were present. Of course, they did not get an answer, which shows how powerless congressional oversight committees are. Comey repeatedly said that he could not tell the committee anything, because it would confirm that a press leak was true. But, he said, speaking generally and of no specific leak, most leaks come from “someone who heard something” and passes it on to the media, which also explains the inaccuracy of some leaks. In other words, don’t blame us.

The Democrats were out in force to demonize Russia, Putin, and everyone, especially Trump Republicans, who speaks to a Russian even if the person is still a private citizen, as was Gen. Flynn when he recommended to the Russian ambassador that Russia not respond in kind to President Obama’s expulsion of Russian diplomats over Christmas.

The Democrats bestowed yet another demonic title on Putin. In addition to being “the new Hitler,” a “thug,” and a “Mafia don,” today Putin became a “tarantula in the center of the spy web.”

The Democrats’ position was that Flynn, by discouraging a Russian tit for tat, had interfered with the Obama regime’s policy of worsening relations between the US and Russia. Some Democrats saw this as treason. Others saw it as proof that Flynn and Trump are in Putin’s pocket, and still others see it as even worse.

The Democrats were also very concerned about lobbyists, if they be Republican, working for Russian interests, including Tillerson, the Secretary of State. The fact that every country employs lobbyists and that the lobbyists don’t always register as foreign agents, such as Israel’s lobbyists, or if news reports at the time were correct, neocon Richard Perle who represented Turkey in Washington.

Democrats were also after Gen. Flynn for saying that he had not received money from the Russian government. Flynn received a fee for attending the 10th Anniversary celebration of RT in Moscow. Is RT, a news organization, the Russian government? Its budget is supported by the Russian government, but how does this differ from the US government’s support of the budgets of National Public Radio, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Voice of America? Does this mean that everyone who gives an interview to NPR, Radio Liberty, and VOA is an American agent in the pocket of the US president? If you attend a function of one of these organizations, does it make you an “American agent/dupe”? Will there be a list of these people?

What the Democrats tried to do yesterday was to criminalize everyone who works for better relations between the US and Russia. To be for peace between the nuclear powers is to be a Russian agent and to be put on a list. The Democrats insisted that Russia was an enemy out to get us, and the Democrats had no difficulty getting Comey and Rogers, both Obama appointees, to agree.

Comey and Rogers said that Russia was the main threat to the US, was working against our interests, and intends to harm us. Harming us includes opposing US hegemony and unilateralism. In other words, if the Russian government acts in the interests of Russia, the Russian government is harming the US. From the testimony it clearly emerged that any kind of opposition to anything Washington does is against American interests.

Both Comey and Rogers declared, falsely, that Russia had invaded Ukraine and seized Crimea by force. If Comey and Rogers are so poorly informed that they believe this, they are unfit for office. Crimea has been a part of Russia for 300 years. The population is almost entirely Russian. When the Soviet Union collapsed and Washington broke it apart, the Ukraine became independent for the first time in history. Crimea, which had been transferred by Khrushchev in 1954 from the Russian Soviet Socialist Republic to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, was included in the transfer on the condition that Russia had a long term lease on the naval base in Crimea.

When Washington’s coup overthrew the democratically elected government in Ukraine, the Russian populations in Crimea, and in the new republics of Luhansk and Donetsk, were attacked and threatened by the neo-nazi elements in eastern Ukraine that had fought for Hitler against the Soviet Union. The populations of these areas voted overwhelmingly to reunite with Russia, from whence they had come. The votes were fair and open. As Crimea is the Russian Navy’s Black Sea base, Crimea was already occupied by Russian forces. For Comey and Rogers to call this an “invasion” displays either ignorance or a lack of integrity.

Indeed, the lack of integrity of the FBI, NSA, CIA, and Obama regime is evidenced by the sustained campaign of lies, distortions, and targeted “news leaks,” that is, stories planted on the presstitutes by the intelligence services about Russian interference in the presidential election. It is all about protecting the massive military/security budget and powers. Trump threatened both the budget and the power when he declared that his policy would be to normalize relations with Russia. If relations are normalized, the carefully orchestrated “Russian threat” disappears. The intelligence services are not willing for this to happen. The US intelligence services prefer the risk of nuclear Armageddon to a budget cut.

The Democrats are probably not sufficiently intelligent to understand that they are fanning the flames of war between nuclear powers. The Democrats are desperate to find someone on whom to pin their loss of the election. Moreover, by pinning it on a conspiracy between Trump and Putin, they hope to remove Trump from office. Although Pence, who is a Russophobe, is acceptable to the military/security complex, the Democrats have hopes of clearing out Pence as well, as his election resulted from the alleged conspiracy, and reinstalling themselves in the White House.

Americans need to understand that the political competition between the Democrats and Republicans is over which party gets to collect the money for being the whore for the One Percent. Traditionally, the party in the White House gets most of the money, so that is where both parties want to be.

Michael Morell, a supporter of Hillary Clinton and President Obama’s last CIA director in an acting capacity, who was slated to become CIA director under Hillary, said, “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.” 

Morell does believe that it was the Russians who hacked Hillary’s incriminating emails but not in collusion with Trump, although the evidence is that they were a leak from inside the Democratic National Committee by disaffected supporters of Bernie Sanders.

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on Meet the Press on March 5 that he had seen no evidence of a Putin-Trump conspiracy when he left office on January 20.

Listening to Comey and Rogers yesterday, if they are not working against President Trump, what would classify as working against Trump? Trump supporters ask why Trump doesn’t fire these two men who are working to block a reduction in the dangerous tensions between Washington and Russia. Are the Democrats, Comey, Rogers, the CIA and their media whores so stupid that they don’t understand what it means when the President of Russia says, “the Americans have destroyed our trust in them?”

Trump doesn’t fire Comey and Rogers, because he cannot fire them. If he fires them, the Democrats and presstitutes will explain the firings as proof that Trump is a Russian agent and is covering up his treason by removing those investigating it.

Trump is trying to use Twitter to respond to the orchestrated media assault against him and to achieve some organization among his supporters, the working class that elected him. However, Trump cannot even count on the Republican Party. Most Republicans are also dependent on political contributions from the military/security complex, and Republicans know that the intelligence agencies have all the dirt on them. To fight for Trump is to expose themselves.

It is undeniable that the CIA controls the media, both in Europe and in the US. Udo Ulfkotte’s book, Gekauftge Journalisten, exposed the CIA’s hold on European journalists when it was published in Germany in 2014. An English language edition, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News, is due out in May. In the meantime Joel Whitney’s book, Finks: How the C.I.A. Tricked the World’s Best Writers, suffices to establish that America’s most respected journalists drank the CIA’s Kool-Aid “and thought they were saving freedom” by serving as propagandists. http://www.truthdig.com/avbooth/item/joel_whitney_cia_propaganda_cold_war_scheer_intelligence_20170317

People in the West need to understand that if the news they receive bears on the interests of the US military/security complex, the news is scripted by the CIA. The CIA serves its interests, not the interests of the American people or the interests of peace.

Could be that the reality of DC scared the pants off Trump.

whatsupdoc's picture

You Sir are entirely correct (in my view).

Mr Trump needs to realise that a 'love for the American people' will need to be taken to the absolute endpoint with the potential death of himself.  If Mr Trump is to Drain the Swamp he will need to be prepared to die for the cause.  And more than likely it will kill him (the cause that is ...)

Lets hope he takes out a lot of them in the process.

If he does it right, he will open the floodgates for many others to follow him in the Draining of the Swamp.

If he is not prepared to die for the cause he may as well resign.  It is a polarising choice and those creatures will only be removed with the shedding of blood.

... a bit melodramatic but ... you'll see ...

“The Democrats are probably not sufficiently intelligent” 

I humbly submit a correction to Dr. Roberts…

..delete the word “probably” from the aforementioned assertion.

..and intelligence in the western sense of the word implies the ability to distinguish right from wrong.

PCR has become senile. He doesn't want to see the truth that the Jewish neocons are wagging this country for IsraHELL's benefit.

chubbar's picture

Any day that Trump wants, he can hold a press conference and expose every one of the points that PCR makes in the above article. Why he hasn't is probably indicative of his opinon that he can work within the system to effect change or that he has been flipped. I seriously doubt that he can change the system from within. Both sides of the aisle continue to spout the narrative that Russia annexed Crimea when anyone with a fucking brain and can read, knows that to be false.

The fact that Trump has continued to build up forces along the Russian border indicates that either Trump has lost control of the military or he has been flipped. Until I see some positive developments where troops are withdrawn from these borders, I assume that the bad guys are winning.

I think now, more than ever before in history, people value their own longevity more than anything else, more than principal, others, anything.  This is magnified exponentially if it comes to their kids.  If a whole country would have to be slaughtered to save their own kids I think the vast majority would do it.  People don't seem to think much about the future for everybody, everybody that may not include them or theirs.

People seem to think that they need to make it to their inevitable death safely.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

What would you suggest, that white people gladly sacrifice their children for the material success of others?

For the "future?"

For an ideology that they hold that may well be attacked, subverted, demonized and oppressed in the next generation?

Americans voted for Woodrow Wilson because he, 'kept us out of the war,' because that was Europe's war, not ours. He ran on that slogan even while he was colluding to draw America into WWI. He won election and then the 'narrative' changed and they propagandized that it was the patriotic duty of every American to go over there and die for our country.

They used the same tactic during WWII, which FDR knowingly drew us into.

How many American sons do you think we should sacrifice for bankers? For those ethnicities that seem to profit and improve their lot while Americans rush into the battle to be blown apart? That are flooding this country for the 'all mighty dollar' and who have no allegiance to this country or its ideals or to those whose ancestors helped to build this country.

Longevity?

You're damn straight. My goal is to stay alive so that I can help those who are 'aware' and who believe in and support the principles that guided our Founding Fathers, to help them survive this massive economic/currency implosion that cannot be stopped at this point and that will make the Great Depression look like the Roarin' 20s.

And to inflict as much pain on those who caused this problem and who have profited off these problems for the past two-hundred years, and to rid this country of every parasite that came here just for their own material profit and who assume that 'our children' will gladly and dutifully die to protect the profit and career advancement of 'their children' while they stay safely out of harm's way.

Publicus_Reanimated's picture

Please cite Wilson's "collusion".  While there were members of his administration and staff who supported America's entry into WWI, Wilson prevaricated even after the Zimmermann telegram was relelased to the public.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

First off, you don't "cite collusion," genius, you cite a reference that provides evidence of collusion.

Second, how many books to you want to check? I have about a dozen here that list his activities and his deception of the American people.

But hey, if you're a socialist or a socialist ass-licker, then none of that matters to you, does it?

Do you think Jimmah Carter was the best president "evah"?

Ms No's picture

"What would you suggest?"

Obviously I was suggesting that people think about the issue.  Is your life worth more than everything or anyone else's?  I obviously was not advocating for people to join foreign banking war fodder.  I don't how you could have even come to that conclusion.  You also contradict yourself.  If you support principals openly in dangerous times you would be putting yourself at risk.  Then you say another goal is to inflict as much pain as possible on those who caused it which would also put you and yours at risk.  Remember when the shit hits the fan and the law breaks down they might also go for your kids to punish you.  The point is, how many people have the balls anymore? 

Then you say it's all about staying alive.  So you obviously haven't thought about this issue much.  Furthermore, you assume that I was promoting foreign BS war which is both insulting and stupid.

As far as the question you asked, yes, the future is worth more then your life or mine.  The future is children for the most part.  The future will either be free or hell.  Back in the day it was standard for people to be willing to risk their lives for any child if they had to.  Now nobody seems to give a shit about anybody but themselves and their own. Now people walk by as someone gets raped and beaten on the street. They are too buried in narcissism and animalistic self preservation to be concerned about anyone else.  It's the smurf bandaid generation and the most narcissistic society that likely ever existed.

There is a massive amount of spirituality on show all around the world at the moment if you have eyes to see it.  The blindness in people is unbelieveable.  All those brainwashed suicide bombers for example ...

Ms No's picture

Neocons and Neoliberals are funding the suicide bombers though.  Terrorists have effectively served multiple purposes for them.  Terrorists want to take out Assad, so do they.  Terrorists are used as an excuse to take our rights away and turn this place into a police state.  The relationship between McCain and Hillary would be a good example.  People have to be careful because they will twist any belief system, racial tension to use it as a tool if it suits them.  They are great at creating false dichotomies.  There is no doubt, however, that they are pure evil.  "The game is afoot".

Don't understand the downvotes.  Trump promised action and all we got was some early EOs that were half PR stunt and half action, lots of tweets, a failure with Flynn, firing a prosecutor and few underlings or stand ins, more tweets, a bogus healthcare bill that is going to fail because it does not deliver what was promised and there are a few dozen in congress willing to stand up for what they think is right, KSA weapons deal, apparently more US troops on the ground in Syria, and what appears to be a whole government (specifically Executive Branch and RINO/NEOCon party) that is eating itself while we spiral towards confrontation with Russia.

Yay

Praying for the ironic:  Trump actually WAS talking to Putin and they have this all worked out so we don't go to war but rather expose the rogue elements in both countries who do want war on a scale that will end human history.  It would be hard to argue that trying to start a war that will end in the death of 100% of humanity (especially the citizen's of the culprits' own country whom they are sworn to protect) doesn't constitute treason of the highest order.  "This guy conspired to kill you Joe and Jane America.  How do you feel about that?

He should have fired these holdovers on day one and cleared the deck for the action of which you speak.  Now instead being focused on the guns of the enemy he has to worry about pirates among his own crew and most disappointing of all, he still doesn't seem to get the true extent of the enemy infiltration into every facet of the government and how powerless the government really is to the interests of the elite of the elite and their lackeys.  Outside of the most aggressive and deep cleansing actions in our history he has zero chance of success.  He promised to drain the swamp, didn't, and now we have an active revolt but he's threatening other Republicans about Obamacare 2.0. 

I don't remember buying a ticket to this crappy show.  Kick me out.

 

 

JSBach1's picture

Let me preface my ensuing diatribe by a few notable points: I, like you, have small children to consider in the overall equation, yet a revolution-of-sorts may be in the best interest of the nascent and precariously tumultuous republic.

As with any meaningful revolution, the perceived monarchs -- the repressives, if you will -- are immediately captured and terminated, or made-to-pay-in-equitable-terms, wink-wink, in the commencing salvo. The interests, and thereby the imperative of the people is recaptured in the aftermath. Absent verifiable existence and viability of this counter-strike, an enhanced-proliferation-of-sorts would have to follow. We, the people, will, in the end, not relent until a equitable and deterministic outcome is delivered, as such.

There comes a point of no-return, an event-horizon, in the face-of-persistent-defiance-thereof and willful-deceit-of the populace at-large before the straw-that-broke-the-camel's-back is triggered.

Ms No's picture

"The interests, and thereby the imperative of the people is recaptured in the aftermath."

That is the tricky part, or one of.  As long-term expert infiltrators they are always on both sides and often even create the opposition.  Hopefully any leadership would be acutely aware of this, if not, it would all be for not.

JSBach1's picture

Having dealt with the most aggregious instigators of the modern-recalibration-of-foreign-policy-initiatives, the interests of the collective-people would, imho, be thrust into prominence of the initiative, and, thereby be the driver of any deliberation process.

JSBach1's picture

The only pervading-interest of the so-called "leadership" is it's own self-interest. What other reasonable conclusion can be derived?

Ms No's picture

None. No other conclusion can be derived.

Yes, you worry about your children and their survival.  I guess that is why there are preppers who got their start well before this election.  I am ashamed to admitI shall have no remorse about shooting "anyone" dead when SHTF.  "Anyone" covers a wide assortment of the corrupt who wish to bring down the nation that our visions have stood for.

It all depends on what type of people are in the commenting crowd.  You should see how stupid Sunday days are in here.  The bottom line is that nobody can know for sure, with the information available, that Trump is legit.  A lot of people hope he is, we all do.  People are more than entitled to be suspicious though, especially if one is aware of the context of our recent political history.  If they didn't agree they probably should skip over it or offer a debate.  Apparently, people think they know for sure that he is wrong.  I don't know how they could.

Quit repeating the bullshit that your DNC and Islamist masters spew. 

 

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/jfk-warmonger/

 

"Kennedy, for his part, was enthusiastic about eliminating Castro. Once in office, he eagerly approved the CIA’s plan, and preparations began in earnest. The operation was a farce from the beginning. It depended on two projected events, neither of which occurred: the assassination of Castro and a widespread uprising against the Cuban government. This was the “they’ll shower us with rose petals” argument advanced 40 years before George W. Bush’s “liberation” of Iraq. It took less than two days for Cuban forces to squash the invaders.

Lurching from disaster to catastrophe, Kennedy, after barely a year in office, authorized an increase in aid to South Vietnam and sent 1,000 additional American “advisors.” While Lyndon Johnson usually gets the blame for escalating the Vietnam War, it was Kennedy who ordered the first substantial increase in direct U.S. involvement.

In his famous “pay any price, bear any burden” inaugural address, Kennedy put the Soviets on notice that his administration would prosecute the Cold War to the fullest, declaring that we “shall meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” In Vietnam, this meant supporting the regime of Ngo Dinh Diem, whose dictatorship became increasingly repressive as Viet Cong forces gathered strength."

Ms No's picture

Yes genius, in order for Kennedy to see what the CIA truly was he likely did so via exposure and dealings with them, as all presidents have.  Most presidents go with the flow, he threatened to take them apart.
