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.

An indication of how evil America is, was the genocide of Syrian Christians. Most of the dead are Syrian Christians, the number could be in the 500K plus range because not one US MSM will report about the genocide of Christians.

Israel and the CIA developed and funded with Saudi and Qatar money the genocide of Syrian Christians. Not one word about Israeli involvement in Syria by Alex Jones. But NET TEN YAHOO the Israel leader has made it clear, Israel was behind ISIS.

The MSM nor did Alex I wish I was a Jew Jones report Israel involvement in Syria and the genocide of Christians was covered up. However, the main Russian government selling point to the Russian people for Russian involvement is because of the genocide of Christians. The Russians went into Syria for the purpose of stopping it. Now we are told in the open, Israel was the main driver of ISIS.

There is no way for Americans to know the truth because the US media system is controlled by Israel and congress is controlled by Israel and Jones never tells the truth. It's as if he is working for the Zionist to deflect attention away from Israel.

..An indication of how evil America can lay this at the feet of the marxist zionist jew...who control our govt, our media and set our culture... marxist zionist jews killed 20+ million Orthodox Christian Russians with their only remorse being that they did not kill all of them... they worship at the altar of greed in the synagogue of satan...and I am not a Christian... I wish I was...

Muslims are the only other religion on Earth that believes in Jesus.

Who are the greatest enemies of the State? Mexicans and Muslims.

Which of them believes in Jesus? Both groups.

Who are the greatest friends of the State? Saudis and Hindus.

Saudis are crypto-Jews and Hindus worship a blue monkey-god.

150,000 to 250,000 Hindus a year stealing 98% of high-tech jobs,

looting the technology, offshoring the service groups, running the

media ops at every level, they might as well be crypto-Jews.

The Chinese are just in it for the money. Same with Khazars.

When the last Mexican is deported, and last Muslim slaughtered,

and the last American Christian is poodled by the False Donald,

then Satan will rise from the bowels of Hell at 666 Fifth Ave, NYC,

and the shit is really gonna go sideways.

Friend, you seem really taken in by this "monotheism" garbage.

You've had it rammed down your throat since you were a kid, I suppose?

Well, despite everything the lying monotheists tell you, they are very recent death cults that have been imposed upon everybody.

Are warfare and killing not Male attributes? Do the monotheists not grovel before a Male deity? 

Here is something that the monotheists won't tell you, even in a fit. Their "Jwe" killed his wife, Ashera. That's right, Deicide

You worship an insane, unbalanced deicidal Idol. And look at where that has got us.

I call on Kali Maa to destroy your illusions.

And now The Intercept jumps on the MSM bandwagon. This from Moon of Alabama:

The new Intercept piece published yesterday insinuates that the Syrian government under President Bashar Assad is liked by white supremacists because it somehow is itself fascist. Here is how the outlet announced the piece:

The Intercept Tweet :

Assad’s vision of creating a “homogenous” society is what white nationalists have aspired for themselves.

full tweet

The screed, written by one Mariam Elba, has a rather crude thesis. Its core is solely based on a false translation of a speech Bashar Assad held on August 20:

The media circus in the USA around any "news story" is beyond fantastical.  The country is a bonafide global joke.  Yet some Americans keep believing some tripe about America being "the best" and support their claims by stating things such as:

Everybody wants to come to America.  -- Fact:  No, only illegal mexicans, central american gangsters and lots of Indians and some Chinese are clamoring to come to the USA.  Most of the rest of the world is not particularly intersted in coming here.  

We are #1 at everything.  --  Fact: Yes, at obesity, psychotropic mental health drugs, gun violence, lower-class poverty, family disintegration, male emasculation, erectile dysfunction (partially due to extreme female obesity), GMO foods etc.

We can beat anyone.  We have the storongest military fighting force the world has every seen.  Fact: Yes, see Iraq, Taliban, Syria as evidence. 

We have the best life here.  Fact: yes, so long as you avoid the cops.


Anyway, it is quite obvious that for anyone other than the wretched masses from the third world, American is really not all that nice.  Many quickly realize when they arrive in the USA that life is rather boring and miserable in the land of the free.

I do not intend to become dispossessed of my Constitutional freedoms in silence, robbed of my standard of living, religious freedom and self-government.

It is not too hard for the enemy to win when you give up.The nation now is in the middle of a political civil war, The People vs. The Establishment. If we do not fight, we soon will see ourselves as collectivized subjects of a "New World Order" -- all equal in servitude to the State.

Too late.Nothing can save US.It is going to desintegarte ,all 5 stages of collapse(financial,economic aka commerce,political,social,cultural).When USSR collapsed,they stopped at stage 3. America is going to experience   all 5.Well,we're exceptional ,after all.Look around you.See the real economic numbers.

Prepare  for a 3rd world. I think that at least 1/2 of the polpulation is going to die quickly.From hunger,lack of physical fitness and mostly ,from the side effects of the drugs they take, which you can not stop abruptly without major consequences,like opioids and SSRI. Also ,many very sick people ,kept alive by many medications and procedures:many take 39-45 pills/day to stay alive,hemodialyses,O2 supplies,IV perfusions and nutrition,insulin,etc. Then,the looting and killing  start. If you are alone,even a lot of guns won't help.Small communities ,with close ties will make it.

We are #1 at everything.  --  Fact: Yes, at obesity, psychotropic mental health drugs, 

I can help there on the obesity problem. 

Maltodextrin triggers twice as much insulin as Big Bad sugar. And they put it into everything. It gets a free pass. 

This is just begging for a class action suit.

Gun violence - you mean negro gun violence.

So long as you avoid the cop - What garbage. You mean so long as you avoid the negroes.

Your denigration of the military is de rigeur. Our involvement in Syria is hardly proof of anything about the military. Bone up on asinine ROE. 

Plenty of Muslims qnd Africans want to come here and Dems and RINO scum do their best to ensure they can.

Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

Where are all the peace marchers that  we knew during the Vitenam War?  There were thousands marching all over the world against this unjust war.

Do we need to reserect the draft so we can piss off as many young people as we can?

Perhaps we do!!

Maybe it will wake up everyone if they can bitch against the loss of sons, duaghters, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, etc.

Paul Craig Roberts is stating a true fact.  When the bombs fly say good bye to all your loved ones.  Better still, I suggest you state this before the bombs fly because there won't be a last minute chance to do so because you'll all be DEAD.

No chance to get the peace movement dusted off when it is too late.

Good bye everyone.

PCR is in Gitmo and his blog has been taken over by Soviet operatives.

Trump Jr already ADMITTED there was collusion. The meeting (which

included a Russian spy and Jared Kushner, both since REDACTED,) is

now claiming it was about 'adoption' (of underage Ukrainian girls), and

which is also an international crime. Nothing 'PCR' says is true anymore.

You are an idiot. Trump Jr. Hasn't admitted to jack shit other then to attend a meeting that was a complete setup to entrap Trump Jr. and anyone else the DNC could entrap. He walked out of the meeting in minutes when it was revealed it was a setup. That fact is undisputed but you fail to mention it. You are just another BS troll.

Everybody does their best to bend elections overseas to suit their agendas. Did not the immaculate O visit UK to make them stay in the EU ? And in an outrageously high handed and arrogant manner? Did not US do everyting to destabilize Palestine when they had the gall to democratically elect a leader WE did not want?

Luckily his intervention backfired and produced the opposite result. It was very close and anger at his effrontery could have been decisive. 

How many crimes does US have to commit before " the West"  sees it and calls it?

I was one of the anti-war demonstrators. Turned out that most of my fellow demonstrators were not against war, just them participating. Now they are grown up and have kids of their own, not a word from them. There's no draft, so their crotch fruit will not be cannon fodder.

Jews were in the forefront of the Vietnam Era peace movement. Now they are strangely quiet. They are backing all the wars against arabs with donations and putting Jews into congress and other parts of government.

The Draft was killed in 1973.  But the Vietnam War lingered on until 1975.  All protests stopped after the Draft was extinguished.  Those, who protested, protested to stop their kids and friend's kids from being conscripted.

The War droned on the Tube for everyone to see.  As long as my kid wasn't there, then it is not my problem.  Pretty much the attitude back then.  By the way I was conscripted and fought as an Inf Lt with 101st Airborne in 1968-69.

Over the past few years I have been keeping up on the job market and applying for and working various jobs.  I knew something wasn't right.  If you want to check me then go back and read my post about my application Pizza Hut delivery driver.  I came from an era of paper resumes properly and it worked.

Things do not work way anymore as many of you know.  Typically, the blame is placed on the applicant for whatever reason.  Sometimes that might be true but what is quite alarming.  The scope of what I was doing is not something I can post about at this time because the level of fraud is incredible.

Briefly, I will just pick on INDEED here and here.  I might add that the Better Bussiness Bureau is complete fraud as well per this gem called SHLD.  Need I mention TALEO?

You would think that I am complaining about the the prospective employee's never garnering a response but in this case I am not.  What a huge a pain in the ass though for applicants it is.  If you looked at the links you see the scam(s).  It is clear cut that the programming is not meant to match the best candidate to the best prospective employer but rather the opposite.  The programming is meant to pair up the worst and least qualified candidate with a company looking to hire and id does so make sure that every click up resume upload generates cash.

Why is that important?  Because that means the company can't source the best talent and wastes time with they get for "approved applicants" and it wastes the applicants time.  Data gathers for the AST it does not need and likely loses or sells and yet keeps a copy for itself.

My question is very much a part of something I would need to write a book about but ZHers could help on this on this in regards Forbes and who ever The Muse is, regarding it's asslove of LinkedIn.  Can you tell me an anecdote about Linked In that you have experienced? 

For my part, I thought Linked in was an elitiest White Collar bragging room.  I don't think it is anymore.  It looks like a worse version of FaceBook these days but I was never a part of it.

I have to work on the fallacy of "You need to have a social networking account that everyone can see or you won't get hired".

Talk about lazy HR.




roddy6667's picture

Retire as soon as you can, and you won't have to worry about resumes, interviews, supervisors...all that shit.

People ask me what I do. I answer "Not a damn thing". It's not entirely true, but I have taken care of most of the "have to's" in my life. Mostly what I do is what I want to do, even if it is nothing.

My next resume creation will be interesting.  Simple Jack.  There will be no degrees or professional job experience.  I will be special though.

PCR's right about so much, but he should explain why the world would supposedly be fairer or freer under a different hegemon. Good luck. Imperial history isn't exactly helpful to him on this point.

It's a minor point, but he's also suffering cog dis w/r/t North Korea. It doesn't fit his big-ape-bullies-small-fry paradigm, at all, but he's thrown it on the gripe pile, anyway. Senioritis?

No country will risk the wrath of the US by arresting them.

I've not read one comment. PCR is right but I miss the point, unless it is that the public can't find it's own ass politically.

Each party has no interest in the public or what happens to individual people other than the connected and influential.
