Paul Craig Roberts On "The Conspiracy To Remove Trump From The Presidency"

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

US intelligence services, the Democratic Party, some Republicans including members of President Trump’s own government, and the presstitute US media are conspiring against American democracy and the President of the United States.

We know this from a public letter to Trump published today, July 24, 2017, on by Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity.



FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)


SUBJECT: Was the “Russian Hack” an Inside Job?

Executive Summary

Forensic studies of “Russian hacking” into Democratic National Committee computers last year reveal that on July 5, 2016, data was leaked (not hacked) by a person with physical access to DNC computers, and then doctored to incriminate Russia.


After examining metadata from the “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server, independent cyber investigators have concluded that an insider copied DNC data onto an external storage device, and that “telltale signs” implicating Russia were then inserted.


Key among the findings of the independent forensic investigations is the conclusion that the DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Of equal importance, the forensics show that the copying and doctoring were performed on the East coast of the U.S. Thus far, mainstream media have ignored the findings of these independent studies [see here and here].


Independent analyst Skip Folden, a retired IBM Program Manager for Information Technology US, who examined the recent forensic findings, is a co-author of this Memorandum. He has drafted a more detailed technical report titled “Cyber-Forensic Investigation of ‘Russian Hack’ and Missing Intelligence Community Disclaimers,” and sent it to the offices of the Special Counsel and the Attorney General. VIPS member William Binney, a former Technical Director at the National Security Agency, and other senior NSA “alumni” in VIPS attest to the professionalism of the independent forensic findings.


The recent forensic studies fill in a critical gap. Why the FBI neglected to perform any independent forensics on the original “Guccifer 2.0” material remains a mystery – as does the lack of any sign that the “hand-picked analysts” from the FBI, CIA, and NSA, who wrote the “Intelligence Community Assessment” dated January 6, 2017, gave any attention to forensics.


NOTE: There has been so much conflation of charges about hacking that we wish to make very clear the primary focus of this Memorandum. We focus specifically on the July 5, 2016 alleged Guccifer 2.0 “hack” of the DNC server. In earlier VIPS memoranda we addressed the lack of any evidence connecting the Guccifer 2.0 alleged hacks and WikiLeaks, and we asked President Obama specifically to disclose any evidence that WikiLeaks received DNC data from the Russians [see here and here].


Addressing this point at his last press conference (January 18), he described “the conclusions of the intelligence community” as “not conclusive,” even though the Intelligence Community Assessment of January 6 expressed “high confidence” that Russian intelligence “relayed material it acquired from the DNC … to WikiLeaks.”


Obama’s admission came as no surprise to us. It has long been clear to us that the reason the U.S. government lacks conclusive evidence of a transfer of a “Russian hack” to WikiLeaks is because there was no such transfer. Based mostly on the cumulatively unique technical experience of our ex-NSA colleagues, we have been saying for almost a year that the DNC data reached WikiLeaks via a copy/leak by a DNC insider (but almost certainly not the same person who copied DNC data on July 5, 2016).


From the information available, we conclude that the same inside-DNC, copy/leak process was used at two different times, by two different entities, for two distinctly different purposes:

-(1) an inside leak to WikiLeaks before Julian Assange announced on June 12, 2016, that he had DNC documents and planned to publish them (which he did on July 22) – the presumed objective being to expose strong DNC bias toward the Clinton candidacy; and

-(2) a separate leak on July 5, 2016, to pre-emptively taint anything WikiLeaks might later publish by “showing” it came from a “Russian hack.”

*  *  *

Unlike the CIA, NSA, and FBI, the veteran intelligence professionals performed forensic investigations. They found conclusive evidence that the alleged “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server [these are the emails that show the DNC working for Hillary against Sanders] was not hacked but leaked.

The leaked documents were copied onto an external storage device and doctored with a cut-and-paste job to implicate Russia as having hacked the documents.

In other words, the alleged hack was instead a copy from the inside that was subsequently doctored to reflect Russian origin.

The veteran intelligence professionals surmise that this was done in order to focus attention away from the embarrassing content of the emails, placing attention instead on “Russian interference in the US presidential election.”

As I see it, the success of this false and orchestrated story of Russian hacking, for which not a scrap of evidence exists, revealed to the military/security complex the opportunity to remove Trump and thus protect the oversized budget and power of the military/security complex that is threatened by Trump’s intention to normalize relations with Russia.

It revealed to the Hillary forces the opportunity to vindicate themselves with the argument that Russia stole the election for Trump.

It revealed to Israel the opportunity to put an end to Trump’s withdrawal of US interference in the Middle East, thus enabling Israel to continue to use the US military to clear away obstacles to Israeli expansion.

It provided the presstitutes, who hate Trump and “the deplorables” who elected him, with a headline story for months and months to be followed in their expectations with the story of Trump’s removal from the presidency.

The retired intelligence professionals are too circumspect to tell President Trump outright that a conspiracy is underway to remove him from office whether by impeachment or assassination by a right-wing “lone nut” enraged at the traitorous president, but this does seem to be the message between the lines. As I have provided the link to the letter, you can read it and come to your own conclusion.

  “on July 5, 2016, data was leaked (not hacked) by a person with physical access to DNC computers” ..and his name was Seth Rich. One need not be a Boston State Forensics Science PhD, or an MIT Rocket Scientist or even a freaking Quincy dog catcher to have total omniscience of whodunit.   Seems like OJ Simpson 2.0

A civil war is not on the horizon, not going to start with some huge event, like an assassination of Trump.  America's second Civil War has already begun, and the first shoots already fired. This is a Spiritual war for control of the whole world.  Satanic sexual perverts have captured our Country, and are killing anyone who apposes them. This is REAL WAR!Seth Rich was just one of many recently killed in this war and even Seth's parents dare not come to their son's aid, knowing their lives would be at risk if they dig too deep, and appose this satanic cabal.An ever growing percentage of Americans are Spiritually clueless, and completely unaware of the blood thirsty coup that's taking control.  The synagogue of Satan is fighting for control of the whole world, and America is falling into their control while we sleep.  While ignorant men deny God, Satan enslaves them unaware.  Ever more, we've become the enemy of God.The wise, who know Satan's lies, that his plans will fail spectacularly in the end, and that the meek will inherit the world, also know, these fools will one day bow at the feet of those who love God, and patiently wait during the coming HOUR!

Look at those who belong to the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews but are liars instead. I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and they will know that I love you. Because you have kept My command to endure with patience, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.…

The fake Jews, and all the rest of Gods enemies will soon see all their plans blow up in their faces! 

She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.  For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries."Then I heard another voice from heaven say: "'Come out of her, my people,' so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Pour her a double portion from her own cup.Give her as much torment and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, 'I sit enthroned as queen. I am not a widow; I will never mourn.'Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her."When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: "'Woe! Woe to you, great city, you mighty city of Babylon! In one hour your doom has come!'"The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore--cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble;cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves."They will say, 'The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.'The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mournand cry out: "'Woe! Woe to you, great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!' "Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off.When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, 'Was there ever a city like this great city?'They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: "'Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!

The dollar will die suddenly. Fiat, the cash cow, the golden goose that feeds all the hidden shit that plagues the world, will end in one huge flash crash! Scoff if you want atheists, God will not suffer your mockery forever.  NY City and DC are doomed, along with all your "WEALTH".

All your luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.

I love PCR, but the Deep State is not going to usurp the Trump presidency.  They know they would have a revolution on their hands.  They win by keeping us in a constant state of division and that is how it will remain until the shit hits the fan, whenever that is.

Besides we can see that they are going to have Trump declared insane.  It's like a slow motion train wreck.  They have been gaslighting him and Trump is buckling.  They may already have gotten control of his twitter feed and he was already ranting at the boy scount jamboree.They will declare him insane and have him "hospitalized" in one short weekend, coming soon.

Notice how "alleged Russian interference in the election" morphed into "Russian interference in the election".No proof, no interference in ballots or voting, just Jon Podesta falling for a phishing attack.If that isn't propaganda a bear doesn't shit in the wood.

Would you look at that! PCR has named the Jew.

This is the political saga of our lifetimes and one worthy of being recorded in the history of the United States. Trump's presidency represents an epic clash of the citizen against political corruption. Trump is the first politician since Reagan who is not a member of the Bureaucratic Barnacles. And he is busting the trust. He is shattering whatever fairytale world these idiots have created. And he is paying the price. I, for one, am greatful that someone finally stood up to take the barrage of incoming fire that was inevitable when fighting the system. Trump said "fuck it" I'm going all in. I don't think he expected to take the presidency, but here he is. The resultant fireworks are to be expected. Where this all falls out, I have no idea. But I am thankful that someone with some balls found themselves in control. I want to see the corruption killed with two to the chest and two the head. Standard failure to stop drill.

Saving him from himself is all you can really dream of. Any day now he's going to either fire Meuller or replace Seasions with someone who will. It'll be the beginning of the end at that point. Until then, Trump will continue to shoot himself in the dick every time he opens his mouth or posts on twitter.

I see Twitter as one of his most powerful and subversive weapons against the propaganda empires battling him. Twitter cannot shut his account down now without drawing undue attention to the act. So he has unfettered access to a channel of free speech, unencumbered by political correctness. And that lack fo political correctness is what landed him this job. He is there to set the United States back onto a path toward success. He is there to root out the evil, and he aims to do exactly that.

RE: The Conspiracy To Remove Trump From The PresidencyIt's no conspiracy; it's a sacred duty. Cheetoloni is singularly unqualified for the position and demonstrates his incompetence and unsuitability daily. On top of that he acquired the position through fraudulent means that entail paying back his foreign masters at the expense of national security and sovereignty. In no way is this tolerable. Remove away with urgency and with my full support and gratitude.

Comey admitted that the FBI didn't even bother to look at the DNC server.  IS THIS SOUND INVESTIGATIVE TECHNIQUE?  Just to accept the word of a third party?  WHAT THE FUCK (WTF)?  Does anyone in the FBI read the ZH comments?  Does this sound right to you?
