Paul Craig Roberts Rages At Americans "Laughing All The Way To Armageddon"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

The United States shows the world such a ridiculous face that the world laughs at us.

The latest spin on “Russia stole the election” is that Russia used Facebook to influence the election. The NPR women yesterday were breathless about it.

We have been subjected to ten months of propaganda about Trump/Putin election interference and still not a scrap of evidence. It is past time to ask an unasked question:

If there were evidence, what is the big deal? All sorts of interest groups try to influence election outcomes including foreign governments.


Why is it OK for Israel to influence US elections but not for Russia to do so?


Why do you think the armament industry, the energy industry, agribusiness, Wall Street and the banks, pharmaceutical companies, etc., etc., supply the huge sum of money to finance election campaigns if their intent is not to influence the election?


Why do editorial boards write editorials endorsing one candidate and damning another if they are not influencing the election?

What is the difference between influencing the election and influencing the government?

Washington is full of lobbyists of all descriptions, including lobbyists for foreign governments, working round the clock to influence the US government. It is safe to say that the least represented in the government are the citizens themselves who don’t have any lobbyists working for them.

The orchestrated hysteria over “Russian influence” is even more absurd considering the reason Russia allegedly interfered in the election. Russia favored Trump because he was the peace candidate who promised to reduce the high tensions with Russia created by the Obama regime and its neocon nazis—Hillary Clinton, Victoria Nuland, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power. What’s wrong with Russia preferring a peace candidate over a war candidate? The American people themselves preferred the peace candidate. So Russia agreed with the electorate.

Those who don’t agree with the electorate are the warmongers—the military/security complex and the neocon nazis. These are democracy’s enemies who are trying to overturn the choice of the American people. It is not Russia that disrespects the choice of the American people; it is the utterly corrupt Democratic National Committee and its divisive Identity Politics, the military/security complex, and the presstitute media who are undermining democracy.

I believe it is time to change the subject. The important question is who is it that is trying so hard to convince Americans that Russian influence prevails over us?

Do the idiots pushing this line realize how impotent this makes an alleged “superpower” look. How can we be the hegemonic power that the Zionist neocons say we are when Russia can decide who is the president of the United States?

The US has a massive spy state that even intercepts the private cell phone conversations of the Chancellor of Germany, but his massive spy organization is unable to produce one scrap of evidence that the Russians conspired with Trump to steal the presidential election from Hillary. When will the imbeciles realize that when they make charges for which no evidence can be produced they make the United States look silly, foolish, incompetent, stupid beyond all belief?

Countries are supposed to be scared of America’s threat that “we will bomb you into the stone age,” but the President of Russia laughs at us. Putin recently described the complete absence of any competence in Washington:

“It is difficult to talk to people who confuse Austria and Australia. But there is nothing we can do about this; this is the level of political culture among the American establishment.


As for the American people, America is truly a great nation if the Americans can put up with so many politically uncivilized people in their government.”

These words from Putin were devastating, because the world understands that they are accurate.

Consider the idiot Nikki Haley, appointed by Trump in a fit of mindlessness as US Ambassador to the United Nations.

This stupid person is forever shaking her fist at the Russians while mouthing yet another improbable accusation. She might want to read Mario Puzo’s book, The Godfather. Everyone knows the movie, but if memory serves somewhere in the book Puzo reflects on the practice of the irate American motorist who shakes a fist and gives the bird to other drivers. What if the driver receiving the insult is a Mafia capo? Does the idiot shaking his fist know who he is accosting? No. Does the moron know that the result might be a brutal beating or death? No.

Does the imbecile Nikki Haley understand what can be the result of her inability to control herself? No. Every knowledgeable person I know wonders if Trump appointed the imbecile Nikki Haley US ambassador to the world for the purpose of infuriating the Russians.

Ask Napoleon and the German Wehrmacht the consequence of infuriating the Russians.

After 16 years the US “superpower” has been unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban, who have no air force, no Panzer divisions, no worldwide intelligence service, and the crazed US government in Washington is courting war with Russia and China and North Korea and Iran.

The American people are clearly out to lunch in their insouciance. Americans are fighting among themselves over “civil war” statues, while “their’ government invites nuclear armageddon.

The United States has an ambassador to the world who shows no signs of intelligence, who behaves as if she is Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee to the 5th power, and who is the total antithesis of a diplomat. What does this tell about the United States?

It reveals that the US is in the Roman collapse stage when the emperor appoints horses to the Senate.

The United States has a horse, an uncivilized horse, as its diplomat to the world. The Congress and executive branch are also full of horses and horse excrement. The US government is completely devoid of intelligence. There is no sign of intelligence anywhere in the U.S. government. Of or morality. As Hugo Chavez said: Satan is there; you can smell the sulphur.

America is a joke with nuclear weapons, the prime danger to life on earth.

How can this danger be corralled?

The American people would have to realize that they are being led to their deaths by the Zionist neocon nazis who, together with the military/security complex and Wall Street, control US foreign policy, by the complicity of Europe and Great Britain desperate to retain their CIA subsidies, and by the harlots that comprise the Western media.

Are Americans capable of comprehending this? Only a few have escaped The Matrix.

The consequence is that America is being locked into conflict with Russia and China. There is no possibility whatsoever of Washington invading either country, much less both, so war would be nuclear.

Do the American people want Washington to bring us this result? If not, why are the American people sitting there sucking their thumbs, doing nothing? Why are Europe and Great Britain sitting there permitting the unfolding of nuclear armageddon? Who murdered the peace movement?

The World and the American people need desperately to rein in the warmonger United States, or the world will cease to exist.

An International Court To Preserve Life On Earth needs to be assembled. The US government and the war interests it serves need to be indicted and prosecuted and disarmed before their evil destroys life on earth.

If you have offended the Gods they will deprive you of their gifts, one by one.

And what are the gifts of the Gods?

Humour, sex, poetry, music, family, gratitude, and many others.

It is easy to do an objective analysis of how well you please your ancestors and your Gods.

"Why is it OK for Israel to influence US elections but not for Russia to do so?"

Because Paul as Mayer Amschal Rothschild made clear 200 years ago... Give me control of the money!... And the rest of the Tribe that followed is in the "history books"!

Paul Craig Roberts, a Texan, is a name that belongs on the 2020 ballot for President of the United States.  I wrote as much in an e-mail to him many years ago.

The best thing that could possibly happen is for some Israeli F15s to get downed over Syria by Russia.

At least it would get the ball rolling.....

Followed by some UK and US jets getting shot down.


Incase thew citizens of the USA and the UK are confused, Syria is a sovereign  state and is entitled to protect its own airspace.


Shoot all non-Syrian aircraft down, period.


I'm sick of this shit. I feel for the US and British airman but bombing anywhere in Syria is illegal. And as was made painfully clear at Nuremburg, an illegal order leading to an illegal act is still an illegal act. The pilots will be heald accountable so really, I have no sympathy when they start to get smoked over Syria, they shouldn't be there anymore than they should be over canada.

Judgment At Nuremburg - Maximillian Schell won an Oscar for this scene, among others.

its only illegal if you lose.

Judge Robert H. Jackson, Chief US prosecutor in the Nuremberg trials in a letter discussing the potential weaknesses of the trial, in October 1945 told US President Harry S. Truman that the Allies themselves:

"have done or are doing some of the very things we are prosecuting the Germans for. The French are so violating the Geneva Convention in the treatment of prisoners of war that our command is taking back prisoners sent to them. We are prosecuting plunder and our Allies are practicing it. We say aggressive war is a crime and one of our allies asserts sovereignty over the Baltic States based on no title except conquest."

Never mind that is was the greed cemented into the Treaty of Versailles that led to Germany’s 1923 hyperinflation and forced impoverishment that led, ultimately, to WWII.

You would think that white people the world over would be getting about tired of being blamed for Hitler.  We have been beat over the head with it literally our entire lives and we don't even know that he even did half the shit they say he did.  The whole world is literally being pushed off a cliff while they constantly conjure Hitler.  Even if he did, our relatives died fighting him so why don't they shut the hell up already.  They should be kissing our ass.  We stole a country for them too.  Are they ever happy?  Hell no.  One group constantly benefits from this.  They claim minority status and yet are the most influential people in the world, not all of them but many.  If you own the money, media and government you are not a damn "minority" just because some guy supposedly killed a bunch of you in a war a long time ago.  Some of you were killed?  Welcome to the human race.  Ever since everybody else is dying.

I've no relation to any of the following:  Hitler, Slavery, Indian Genocide, Mexican/American war, etc. etc.  All I did was basically nothing during the end of the Cold War as a sub guy.  


I don't accept any of the guilt related to any of the above and I highly recommend you don't either.

Two great comments!

Victor999's picture

Jackson should also have mentioned the way the Germans were being treated by his own country as well, from Eisenhower on down.  His own Nuremburg trial structure was composed mainly of Jews - who could have predicted the results?

Ace006's picture

Jews who administered horrific beatings to some of the prisoners.

All very good questions, so I'll add another.

Who is more likely to Nuke another country foist, the USA or N Korea ? seriously which ?

Even with all this rhetoric from all sides of the Pond, the Doomsday Clock hasn't moved.

' more likely ' isnt a is a very good way to get fucked.  Kim just needs to stop his mouth.....but he cant.

Trump is now proposing a tactical nuke program to 'level the playing field'

against enemies of our Israeli State, who refuse to bend the knee to Zion.

Read about the mole nuke Israel set off at Fukushima on 3/11, after Japan

had offered to sell enriched uranium to Iran. Initially a M7.0 with no damage

to buildings, then USGS forced it up to M9.0 to explain away a huge tsunami.

The Russian ambassador briefly alluded to mole nukes, but it was redacted.

People will only accept so much water-boarding. They would kill every Jew,

that might get out of hand. Put it in the rear view mirror, and 'move forward'.

JailBanksters's picture

The only difference of Tactical Nuke and Normal Nuke is the scale.

It's still going to create nuclear fallout, it's still going ro be radioactive for thousands of years.

So just putting "Tactical" in front doesn't make it any more enviromently friendly.

As if we haven't fucked the planet enough already. Radioactive isotopes circling the world in the jet stream would be the last straw.

Don't buy sea salt - it is now 5% plastic waste.

It was a false flag event if ever there was one. The Zimbabs did it.

US has a track record for nuking civilians. Easier the next time, particularly if they are convinced they can shoot down any puny retaliation.

That clock's hands get moved around according to the subjective decisions of a minuscule group of Deep Thinkers. "Let's see a show of hands for three minutes before midnight. Come on, Zelda. Don't be an ass with your 'two hours before' nonsense."

Anyone interested in where I think the clock hands should be? Of course not. Absurd. 

In what Prof. Schmidlap thinks? Whoa. Of course, of course. A Deep Thinker on astronomy. Or is it microprocessors ?Food science? Early child development? He must know all about nuclear strategy and international relations!

Leftist crap. Dont care what other countries think. MAGA then worry.

Umh's picture

The fact that other countries see thing differently was presented to let people in the US know they are being led around by propaganda.

It is like knowing your mother had sex, but not wanting to think about it. What are the odds that the US has to spend more money on their military than the rest of the world or that we really needed to bomb Somalia, Irag, Afganistan, Pakistan, Syria, Libya and Yemen last year.

Well, six million people ran away from the 250mph killer category 5++ storm that was going to turn Miami into a swimming pool because the media told them to. 


The six foot storm surge is going to cover people's homes. Because everyone in Florida is a Hobbit. You won't survive. 

Listen to the government, they know. 

When Irma hit Cuba the eye almost disappeared and nearly weakened to a category 2. Still a dangerous storm, but not the nuclear holocaust hurricane forecasted. The pressure reading for Irma could not support the winds they were claiming. 

So it might strengthen, might not. Point is, the government and media are complicit in blowing everything out of proportion for ratings and shock value.

So basically, Rush Limbaugh was right.

Some of us are not laughing.

Some of us are quite distraught and saddened by all of this but no one likes to hurl themselves under a bus for a lost cause.

The only way any of this stops is for enough people to say enough and no more. Those people are mostly currently under the delusion that Trump can save them.

Only the people have a prayer of saving themselves and only if they are united.

America? This is not America, whatever this is, it must be destroyed.

A good indication of mental illness is anyone who believes the government's version of 9/11. It's my test for mental illness. The government is still citing and using 9/11 to justify it's reason for being the government.

"I wish I was a Jew." Alex Jones has stated on his show, something is wrong with Roberts because Roberts has explained about Zionist control of our nation. Jones has married two Jews in a row. Both look like his mother who I suspect is a Jew.

Jones has lost most of his cult followers. There have been many poster comments stating, Jones has condemned anyone as mentally ill who explain and condemn Israel control of our nation or Zionist involvement in 9/11. Jones has never explained Israel and the Mossad conducting operations in the US. It is always some plot deep in the CIA, but never does he explain about Zionism or Israel Mossad operations in America.

Jones is a liar and a traitor for money. So many hate him on both sides of the political spectrum, the number of followers Jones cites is suspect. In Austin, most all people who know who he is make a bad comment about him. I run surveys.

Roberts is a good man telling the God's truth for an America which no longer exist. There is no America, it is in your mind.

The trouble is that while the media and press focus upon White "supremacists" and "nationalists" as they did the patriotic militia movement and the beleaguered Bundys and LaVoy Finicum as a threat to the U.S. government, little notice is given to the nation-breaking George Soros Open Society movement or the violent BLM and Antifa or the regular meetings of the communists at universities around the country and the International Socialist Organizations statement that “The struggle for socialism is part of a worldwide struggle….To achieve socialism, the most militant workers must be organized into a revolutionary socialist party….Only mass struggles of the workers themselves can destroy the capitalist system….Capitalism must be overthrown.”

Interestingly, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was a vice-president of Socialist International.

Do the Russians or the Globalists influence our elections? No. In fact, the Globalists buy the elections because they have at their disposal the full money power of the Federal Reserve System.

PCR’s charges fit what Professor Carroll Quigley said years ago about the control of both political parties and our current one-party system. In Tragedy and Hope, he wrote historically regarding business interests that

  “they expected that they would be able to control both political parties equally. Indeed, some of them intended to contribute to both and allow an alternation of the two parties in public office in order to conceal their own influence, inhibit any exhibition of independence by politicians, and allow the electorate to believe that they were exercising their own free choice.”

Curtis Dall in F.D.R.: My Exploited Father-in-Law likewise related:

“It appears to me that politics is the gentle art of having to pretend to be something that you know you are not, for vote-catching purposes, while being aided by our press….Usually, carefully screened leading ‘actors’ are picked well in advance of election day by a small group, picked for both major parties….It is desirable for (candidates) to have great personal ambition and, perchance, to be vulnerable to blackmail…(Col. House knew Woodrow Wilson was vulnerable to blackmail)…for some past occurrences; hence, someone not apt to become too independent in time…”

And helping to bridge any gaps between the two parties is Council of Foreign Relations "affording unofficially a measure of continuity when the guard changes in Washington...what C. Wright Mills has called the Power Elite." (Joseph Kraft, Harper's Magazine, July 1958)

Lost me at the "International court," Dr. Roberts. The deranged disciples of One World Governmet also howl for the same. This is the LAST thing we need.

What we desperately need are "the chains of the Constitution" and the restoration of the Rule of Law in the U.S.

Right. As much as I am a fan of Putin, I don't want him or especially the Chinese government running our country. Xi is the real danger after the US in my opinion. He has dangerous ambitions and 1.3 billion people to worry about.

Hopefully, Putin can keep him in check, although I am skeptical.

On the contrary, sir.

When the Chinese arrive, I would advise Kow Towing. They at least can read and write and were familiar with the wheel. 

And they won't have any truck with the joyous wonders of Race mixing.

I confess to laughing at Hillary and the establishment.  I have spent nearly all of my energy trying to defeat them, though my efforts have had a negligible effect. 

They are absolutely ridiculous. 

If you can't beat them, laugh at them.

Why do Mexico and Israel get a complete pass when they deliberately and overtly influence our elections?

Why the US accepts dual citizens in the halls of power defeats me. Those neocons are clearly looking after the interests of Isreal. Who are the real illegal immigrants? Dual citizens should be given 48 hours to get the fuck out or they'll hang from lamposts.

How can the world not laugh when you have the likes of Maxine Waters getting voted in year after year, and Al Sharpton getting a prime time spot on a so called news network. Not to mention Obama filling up the White House with people that should be shipped back to Africa, that includes Obama himself. Yes they represent the best America has to offer.
