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.

"while 'their’ government invites nuclear armageddon"

Nuclear war, when it comes, will be at the behest of (((the same group))) that controls our government.

sincerely_yours's picture

It wasn't the Russians that influenced the elections.

It's the Israeli lobby that always bribes our officials to do their bidding, especially as it wants to maintain a Jewish control over the Federal Reserve.

PCR getting a little Looney Tunes.

Of course we're laughing all the way.

Didn't he see Colbert's latest comedy bit where he was Sieg Heiling Trump?

Future Jim's picture

To summarize the article:

Russia good -- America bad.

Global government good -- America bad.

Hugo Chavez good -- America bad.

Hmm ... Why doesn't PCR ever defend individual liberty, free-markets, property rights, or America?

Dr. Dooms-a-lot's picture

Because it is not his thing. Tyrannical government is PCR's thing.
Ron Paul has that base covered.

Future Jim's picture

If PCR's schtik were limited to directly opposing tyrannical government, then:

Why does he promote socialism so frequently?

Why does he quote tyrants like Hugo Chavez and defend other tyrants like Putin?

Why would he promote global tyranny like the UN and propose additional global government?

Why does he support the NWO agenda, which is currently to temporarily take down America in order to neutralize the last armed people who would resist global government?

Given such cognitive dissonance, he is clearly not acting out of principle. He is simply being partisan while pretending to be something else. I think that's called propaganda -- or a psyop.

I remember escaping the matrix... I was the typical WASP living and prospering in the US for a long, long time and I believed all the rah-rah-rah BS we were fed via the media, much like most Americans... It was not until I began to travel the world and was forced to view the US through the lens of the people where I was assigned at the time... Sometimes weeks, months and years...  It was then that I realized that I had been lied to my entire life about every major historical event that shaped the rhetoric of militarism that was being shoved down the rest of the world's throat... I knew if I were to maintain my sanity, I had to escape the matrix and I did... Now I see the US being more polarized than every, ready to tear itself apart and the people fail to realize they are being led down this path on purpose... The hubris of the US deep state which for decades has been used to overthrow governments around the world in the name of the greater good has now turned on it's own... Not happy to be the voice of "democracy". the deep state has now removed the facade and shown it's bloody, tyrannical psychosis of wanting to dominate the world by any means... This will not end well as the Generals believe that limited, tactical nuclear war is not only possible, but ethical... Worship whatever god you call dear and find a safe space, because it's going to get a lot worse before it ever gets better...

Sad that Americans are really no different from North Koreans when it comes down to the degree of political brainwashing.

HowdyDoody's picture

US citizens are 'brainwashed' into believing the US is a 'light unto nations' and a 'force for good'. North Korean citizens are 'brainwashed' into believing the US is 'Great Satan' out to kill them. Two totally different forms of 'brainwashing'.

While I think PCR is about 90% correct in his analysis, he is 100% wrong in his solution. America needs to fix America, not some international legal body.

They,like all UN envoys bimbos or State Department bimbos ,have the same appearance:empty eyes,devoid of a soul,arrogant,looking down on everybody,monumentally stupid,able only to read the pre approved lines,no   humour or intelligence,or culture,or sponaneity ,or charisma. Compare them to Maria Zakharova.

If you consider these bimbos attractive,I say they are as attractive as a chop steak  to some people.

what do they have to do to qualify for the job?(don't answer this last rhetorical question)

And the N Korean viewpoint is significantly more accurate.

jeff montanye's picture

but there is a great difference between n.k. and the u.s., nonetheless.  we are able to talk and write among ourselves, counteracting the damage done by the legacy media and the government propaganda.  certainly russia, with its excellent intelligence service, knows this and knows the diminished and declining support the deep state, the neocons and such as hillary clinton, john mccain and the banksters retain.  

i hope trump is playing a long and tricky game.  some of what he does seems like it.  we shall see.

Pagan Gods... As though there are any true Gods. They are all fictitious, made by man, the latter ones that are worshipped invented by men hallucinating in some Arab desert. Now we are being asked to die for the MIC God, the one that promises no afterlife. But that is truer than the false Gods as it’s here and now and that’s all that’s important. There are no Gods. There’s life and death and profit for the strongest. Not that being strong is a problem if you’re fair. Not a common mix in todays society. Without good and strong people, most of us are mincemeat. We can be strong individually but they can come after us one by one. We need to gather and be strong together and praying to some fucking idol will not make a difference. How many lives has that saved in the numerous wars throughout the milenia?

Food for thought - people knew the difference between right and wrong long before the Romans arrived and gave us God. Religion does NOT hold the moral high ground, just like the zionists, who portray multiculturalism, homosexuality, misogyny and whatever else they perceive as being against people choosing their own path as a society, to be against the new normal. Those cunts from Khazaria need to be dealt with.

what paul forgets to identify on his list of anti-mericans is the majority of his chosen party, the republicans. and for that reason alone i will forever discount his opinion on above matters. he is spot on, but with this major detail being omitted as to his objectivness.

see paul, identity party politics pits one side against another and ignores the focus on the enemy within. and you are part and parcel of this bullshit. simple shit maynard- divide and control.

jeff montanye's picture

he mentions sixteen years in afghanistan and the poor performance of the trump administration in several ways.  but the problem today is one of zionist and war oriented industrial influence.  trump was the peace candidate and hillary wasn't.  were this written in 2008 it likely would have had a different focus.

"defend other tyrants like Putin"

PCR's mission, like any patriot, is to ensure OUR government is not tyrannical.  Other governments are NOT our concern.

As to the wrod "tyrant", Putin is clearly not a tyrant.  A tyrant is a "cruel, oppressive ruler".  How is Putin oppressive and cruel, at least, by standards of modern government?  Because he doesn't allow foreign-funded seditinoist protests without a permit?  Putin has an 80%+ approval rating for years now, a tyrant does not have this.  Stop swallowing the MSM's spunk.

Like the fall of the roman empire, the horses are appointed to the senate.

The great nation of Americans are powerless to change our parallel course for the same reasons the Roman people could not change their own destiny and demise. 

What happened when as a Roman you spoke out against the leaders?  They were fed to the lions.

What happens if the middle class speaks out today?  They get harassed by the IRS or their businesses are regulated to death.  We fear the recourse of the government we allowed to be placed into being.  With our only recourse being the vote... It is not enough and we are swiftly loosing the battle.  Nonviolent change is no longer an option when you are imprisoned in your own homeland by tyrants and criminals

U.S. government is Corporate-Dictated (by mainly MIC Death-Merchants and Bankster-Fraudsters). This kind of inverse fascism is implement by bribing Congress and placing Sock-Puppet Teleprompter-Reading Bozos like Obama or well-meaning but easily blocked buffoons like Trump in the White House. The Corpote-Owners of the government provide socialism for themselves and loot the resources (jobs, etc.), freedoms & rights of the citizenry who are burdened to pay for the socialism provided. Meanwhile their CIA / State Department procede with Hitlerite foreign policy actions, murdering millions through War Crimes, because it is extremely profitible. At the same time, as can be seen by the treatment of the criminal Clintons and the War Criminals Obama, Clinton and Bush, our Corporate-Dictators exempt their surrogates from the rule of law.

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

Paul... I've been criticizing you for years for being timid regarding this crucial subject, but THANK YOU for finally inserting it into one of your pieces.  THIS... is the main question that HAS to be asked by all thinking Americans (and Europeans for that matter).  Unlike the Russian hoax, there are mountains of evidence of the illicit bribes and graft that the AIPAC lobby gives to our "representatives" to garner their votes for the benefit of Israel and all other Jewish interests.  Yet, there is not a word of this unconstitutional treason in the press.  I would hope that you, in your next article, may enlighten the American plebs as to why this is.

when you spend decades to criticize something but you never act to make it change.....
you like it, you accomodate to it,  you are part of the problem because it is simply makes you live.

in modern era, it is called medias, among others...


problem N°1 with USA is hyprocrisy, you put lier in jail but let raper free...
you dot not permit fuck on tv but you produce 80% of world wide web porn.
perpetual liars population and government.

typical cultural marxism.
" dindu nuttin" instead of calling a nigger for what is is, just because you have law that make you gonna give money to monkey when one say to police he been called monkey. you fucking crazy. and now you let em remove statutes and you stay bla bla bla.


fix yourself as global consciousness, then you will be able to fix many things. but as many here are for what is originally, a finance blog, you say crash here crash there, btfd, but you all make money without moving your ass from your seats, trading digits for paper and more digits. you critisize, but you play with the system, it makes you live, and you bring nothing to it, and you are lazy to do so,  so you won't accept it to change.


you not worth any better what you daily talk about.

when a government is making insanities, it is a patriotic duty to disobey. look at yourself, you are not even your own shadow.


when i was kid i wanted to go live in the usa, i preyed for you to react and make some cleaning to show the world an exemple.

but everyday i stay on ZH i realize you won't budge, you are as lost as any other occidental country.


when i underline something, i am called agent provocateur by some libtard snowflake such future jim and head_meat, just because i have the vision that you cannot make a life of compromise, sometime you have to be rude, rocksolid, even if it displease others.

Re..."Why doesn't PCR ever defend individual liberty, free-markets, property rights, or America?"

He probably would - if those things truly existed in USSA. E.g.

"Individual Liberty". The liberty of Blacks living safely in a drug-free city, that actually provided decent education or jobs? Or how about not being allowed to criticize Jews and their extreme over-representation in politics, finance and media? "If you want to determine who rules over you, find out who you may not criticize" - Voltaire.

"Free Markets". You mean the PPT, QE, TBTF, TBTJ, PM oppression, HFT front-running, price manipulation through millions of price inquiries...?

"Property Rights". You mean asset seizures w/o Due Process, predatory lending, property taxes (Israel and KSA don't have them)?

"America". Which one? The one for the 1% or 99%? The 0.01% who call the shots in DC, NY, Media? The pool of grunts who bleed and die for the 0.01%? The America, where a small, hidden cartel has the exclusive Right to conjure Debt Money - with nothing but Casino Faith and Military Force to back it?

So yeah, IF we actually had the Fantasy/Pravda America that you refer to, then I could see your point. 

(BTW, you normally seem level headed. Your comment therefore surprises me.)
