Paul Craig Roberts: "Is Washington The Most Corrupt Government In History?"

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Robert Mueller, a former director of the FBI who is working as a special prosecutor “investigating” a contrived hoax designed by the military/security complex and the DNC to destroy the Trump presidency, has yet to produce a scrap of evidence that Russiagate is anything but orchestrated fake news.

As William Binney and other top experts have said, if there is evidence of Russiagate, the NSA would have it. No investigation would be necessary. So where is the evidence?

It is a revelation of how corrupt Washington is that a fake scandal is being investigated while a real scandal is not.

The fake scandal is Trump’s Russiagate.

The real scandal is Hillary Clinton’s uranium sale to Russia. No evidence for the former exists. Voluminous evidence for Hillary’s scandal lies in plain view.

Why are the clearly false charges against Trump being investigated and the clearly true charges against Hillary not being investigated? The answer is that Hillary with her hostility toward Russia and her denunciation of Russian President Putin as the “New Hitler” is not a threat to the budget and power of the US military/security complex, while Trump’s aim of normalizing relations with Russia would deprive the military/security complex of the “enemy” it requires to justify its massive budget and power.

Why hasn’t President Trump ordered the Justice Department to investigate Hillary? Is the answer that Trump is afraid the military/security complex will assassinate him? Why hasn’t the Justice Department undertaken the investigation on its own? Is the answer that Trump’s government is allied with his enemies?

How corrupt does Mueller have to be to agree to lead a fake investigation designed to overthrow the democratic election of the President of the United States? Why doesn’t Trump have Mueller and Comey arrested for sedition and conspiring to overthrow the president of the United States?

Why instead is Mueller expanding his investigation beyond his mandate and bringing charges against Manafort and others for decade-old under-reporting of income? Why instead is Congress harassing journalist Randy Credico for interviewing Julian Assange? How does an interview become part of the House Intelligence (sic) Committee’s investigation into “Russian active measures directed at the 2016 U.S. election?” There were no such active measures, but the uranium sale was real.

Why haven’t the media conglomerates that have produced presstitutes instead of journalists been broken up? Why can presstitutes lie 24/7, but a man can’t make a pass at a woman?

Once you begin asking questions, there is no end of them.

The failure of the US and European media is extreme.

The presstitutes never investigate real events.

The presstitutes never question inconsistencies in official stories. They never tie together loose ends. They simply read over and over the script handed to them until the official story that controls the explanation is driven into the public’s head.

Consider, for example, the Obama regime’s claim to have murdered Osama bin Laden in his “compound” in Abbottabad, Pakistan, next to a Pakistani military base. The official story had to be changed several times. The Obama regime claim that Obama and top government officials had watched the raid via cameras on the SEALs’ helmets had to be abandoned. There was no reason to withhold the filmed evidence, and of course there was no such evidence, so the initial claim to have watched the killing became a “miscommunication.” The staged photo of the top government officials watching the alleged live filming was never explained.

The entire story never made any sense: Osama, unarmed and defended only by his unarmed wife, was murdered in cold blood by a SEAL. What in the world for? Why murder rather than capture the “terrorist mastermind” from whom endless information could have been gained? Why forgo the political fanfare of parading Osama bin Laden before the world as a captive of the American superpower?

Why were no photographs taken? Why was Osama’s body dumped in the ocean. In other words, why was all the evidence destroyed and nothing saved to back up the story?

Why the fake story of Osama being given a sea burial from an aircraft carrier? Why was no media interested that the ship’s crew wrote home that no such burial took place?

Why was there no presstitute interest in the fact that the SEAL unit, from which the SEALs on the alleged raid on bin Laden’s compound were drawn, was loaded against regulations in one 50-year old Vietnam era helicopter and shot down in Afghanistan, with all lives lost? Why was there no presstitute interest in the parents of the SEALs complaints about inappropriate procedures that cost their sons’ lives and about fears expressed to them by sons that something was wrong and they felt endangered?

Did the SEAL unit have to be wiped out because the members were asking one another, “who was on that raid?” “Were you on the bin Laden raid?” When in fact no one was on the raid.

Why wasn’t Congress interested?

Why was the live Pakistani TV interview with an eye witness of the alleged raid on bin Laden’s compound not reported in the US media? The witness contradicted every aspect of the official story. And this was immediately after the event. There was no time for anyone to concoct an elaborate counter-story or motive to do so. Here is the interview, and here is a verified translation that confirms the accuracy of the English subscripts.

Osama bin Laden had been dead for a decade prior to the false claim that Navy SEALs murdered him in Pakistan in May 2011. Here are the obituaries from December 2001, and this one from Fox News.

Here is bin Laden’s last confirmed interview. He says he had nothing to do with 9/11. Why would a terrorist leader who succeed in humiliating “the world’s only superpower” fail to boost his movement by claiming credit?

Think about this. The bin Laden story, including 9/11, is fake from start to finish, but it is inscribed into encyclopedias, history books, and the public’s consciousness.

And this is just one example of the institutionalized mass lies concocted by Washington and the presstitutes and turned into truth. Washington’s self-serving control over explanations has removed Americans from reality and made them slaves to fake news.

So, how does democracy function when voters have no reliable information and, instead, are led into the agendas of the rulers by orchestrated events and fake news?

Where is there any evidence that the United States is a functioning democracy?

At one time (less so now?) the US had the most powerful military in terms of destructive power in world history. The corrupt government uses that military power for political & financial dominance around the world. Lives don’t matter, not of foreign people or even the US’s own troops. And it’s all held together by lies told in ‘schools’ and broadcast by the media. The proles actually believe in the lies, like some kind of official religion. The worse Roman despots have nothing on the U.S.

thank the 1 percent free minds that visit zh and the alt media for the truth, or at least an opinion of actual, thank you all for your sincere effort to reveal the real event.being intellectually honest is still worth it, even if it means less acceptance, which means less friends.this is true, as the last thing all the tools (sheeple)what to do, is hang with a truther...

The deep state and TPTB want to sweep Shillary under the rug, consign her to the ash heap of history, along with Bubba and his bimbos, the CF, Eric + Loretta, Uranium One, and now they wish to high heaven, with the golden shower dossier.  There are 2 problems: 1) Shillary herself like rabid bulldog clinging by its teeth to the remnants of the MSM pushing a narrative which is every day more ridiculous and helping to drag down the morally and literally bankrupt DNC,  2) the pitchforks are already out, as the forgotten men and women demand constitutional justice and not 'just-us'.Stock up on poporn.

As I have observed, 9/11 lies at the center of everything that now occurs in U.S. politics.  It is the secret that must be kept by all parties.  As revolutionary as Trump's junta claims to be, they can never "drain the swamp" and will forever be partners in crime with the Clintonistas and the neo-cons, so long as the lie of 9-11 and bin Laden continues.For the Clintonistas and the neo-cons, 9/11 was the excuse to use wahabbiists against Shiite oil-producing nations and against Russia and Russian interests: to effect regime change in these nations and maintain the petrodollar.  For the Trump junta, 9/11 is the excuse to adventure in Somalia, Yemen, and elsewhere as the focus returns to the "terrorists" (whom the U.S. was arming and supporting up until this year).  When a nation is controlled by a military junta, however, the military is the solution to every problem.  War is the raison d'etre of generals.What is the point of sending 500 U.S. marines into Somalia to "defeat terrorists" while hundreds of thousands of Muslims rape their way across Europe?  Islamic terrorism is not an enemy that can be fought on a battlefield with tanks, gunships, and air power.  Islamic terrorism emerges from Saudi Arabia and from Muslim schools and from the Muslim religion itself.  The goal is to "contain" Muslim terrorism, which had worked for 1400 years.  Do not allow the Muslims to enter the West.  Hold the gates, as the Byzantines had done.  It is no concern of the West if a tribe of desert nomads wishes to live under the authority of a satanic and barbaric cult.  Nor is it the concern of the West that the Persians have allowed themselves to be conned by a robber, pedophile, murderer, and rapist for 1350 years.  If the Persians have chosen to live this way, so be it, but it precludes them from participating in Western civilization.  The same can be said for the Turks.The myth of 9/11, however, is that containment is not sufficient: indeed, that containment is unnecessary.  The lie of 9/11 is that the U.S. must project military force into the Muslim world to combat "terrorism."  No matter whether or not Trump destroys the neo-cons and the Clintonistas, so long as the U.S. continues to lie about 9/11, the U.S. government remains a threat to its own citizens and to every nation on earth.

That is most likely an intel shill spewing his lies from the gov't  trainig manifesto (five minutes before his shift starts, yet we are funding these spooks):"9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues except with denials they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.""19. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the 'play dumb' rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon.) In order to completely avoid discussing issues, it may be required that you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance."  -- The Gentleperson's Guide To Forum Spies (spooks, feds, etc.)

The issue of 911 lies was dissected so many times,in detail,by multiple ZH commenters,that it's obvious that ANYBODY who still pretends the official story is true,is either a total and hopeless imbecile or a government troll.Plus ,there is as you said Christopher Bollyn, Dr. Judy Wood and "where did the towers go?",the architects and engineers for 911,Luogocomune site and so many other ones. Only if you look at the videos of the towers' collapse,and you have critical thinking,you realize that it was controlled demolition using multiple types of bombs.What's lie about 911? EVERYTHING,and I mean EVERYTHING in the official report is a lie.Including Osama Bin Laden involvement and death. He died as PCR says in December 2001.He had Marfan syndrome and end stage kidney failure from it and was on dialysis. The life expectancy for somebody like this is 40-47 years,and this ,in best conditions,with hospital care,not in "caves in Afghanistan ,hiding from  US army "He was 44 when he died in a hospital in Pakistan(and the See Eye Ayy knew about this,hey,the man was on their payroll on one time,col Tim Osman).Go ask ANY doctor if somebody with those diseases can live ,hiding,in caves for 10 years. It's is so ridiculous I can not even express well my disgust.

Here is your ONE unassailable fact! STEEL was in solution state "for 3 weeks" post collapse - (SEE NUMEROUS FIREMEN AFFADAVITS OF THE 500 POSTED OR VIDEOS OF THE LIQUID) - need 2700 F' to effect solution state - Kerosene or Diesel Fuel as "catalyst" "cannot" get above 600 F'OBVIOUSLY there was another system /  device that affected the steel infrasctructure /  foundationplanes had nothing to do with it - they were propsYou are an idiot!

Plus the steel was coated with ASBESTOS,so it could not have been affected by any heat.have you seen that it was still burning HOT for 2-3 moths AFTER the collapse?What type of energy can trigger this? Because kerosene DOES not do this in THIS UNIVERSE. maybe in an alternate official kosher Universe,approved by morons and trolls who support the government BS.I can say this: I have TWO Litmus tests to sort out people: the 911 truth and what they think about sound money and the Federal reserve.PCR,to his merit,is speaking the truth.

3 buildings, falling at free-fall speed into their own footprint, precludes the possibility that these buildings were destroyed by aircraft collisions.  Do you have new information about the laws of physics or do you have evidence that a miraculouls event occurred in New York City on 9/11 and that the laws of physics were momentarily supsended, such that enormous steel-frame structures suddenly stopped providing resistance to falling material to allow a collpapse to occur at free-fall speed?  If you have no evidence that supports a change in the laws of physics or evidence to support your case that 9/11 was a miraculous event, then reason dictates that you must conclude that those buildings were destroyed by a controlled demolition and that 9/11 was an "inside job."It is not I who am being unreasonable.  It is those who support the U.S. government lies about 9/11 who are being unreasonable.

Exactly,because the situation we face now,with non stop wars and facing possible end of life because a push for a WW III ,is the effect of 911.Our society is sick and it can not heal without this.There are two issues to be addressed if we want any change for the better:-911 truth and punishment of all the real  criminals involved-the Federal Reserve audit/dismemberment and destructionThen,we can see what we can do to put back what's left of our society . You can not heal until you cut off the cancer.

Paul is correct, osama was a mujahideen leader paid by the cia to fight the soviets in Afghanistan, he had nothing to do with 911, we all know it was a zionist inside job a false flag that cost so far $6 trillions most of it went to the war profiteers .Yes paul the us is corrupt to the bones, fraudsters are running the SEC, wall street, the comex, the stock market, the bond market, the chicago exchange all controlled by fraudsters and all transactions are fraudulent.a recent example is the successful start of bitcoin that became a tool for money launderers but the fact is the interest in it was genuine , it shot up straight, this awakened the curiosity of the crooks in NY and they started scheming how to make contracts like paper gold contracts to sell and short what they do not have, once these plans take effect, bitcoin will have the same fate even worse than gold as gold has an intrinsic value  while bitcoin will simply collapse.I watched yesterday one more time the 1929 crash and the fraud was even before that event, markets were manipulated  until the entire middle class was invested in a giant ponzi scheme which caused the great depression.the us corrupt military and political structures caused wars in countless countries and lost all of them as it did not register a single victory while the public purse was hemorrhaging, who benefited from all these wars? the joos.unless I see hillary and bill clinton indicted I would consider trump a complicit in a cover up that implicate him somehow, he could be blackmailed for something sinister . prove me wrong mr trump.

The whole ,so called markets,since the creation of the Federal  Reserve is an engineered bubbles creation and busts.With the bubbles and inflation(they call this growth),they expand the debt,with the busts,they clean all the assets of the suckers. Rinse and repeat.Now,in the Western world ,the BANKS own everything of value and they run the government(look at the Goldman boys EVERYWHERE in the position of power in Europe and here)

Yes Sir, and the puppet vassal US.2, Shadow Government of the UK will receive their comeuppance if they suck us in with your Rogue State.

There are tens of thousands of us here who'll keep those US bases and the British Army- Military Police Force busy, make no mistake about that.

That Branco-drawing is telling of a skewed view on how politics work in USA. The Clintons, Obama, Bush (the first and the lesser), Trump etc. are all servants of power. They’re not in control in any way. The octopus in the center is the monetary system (i.e. the FED and its institutions). The rest follow the dictates of money (fiat) power. It is a mammoncracy – or rule by money. The end game of capitalism – the phase where everything has been privatized including by all relevant means the government itself.

YES! This was actually mentioned in a conversation that I had tonight and its been on my mind recently. America's corruption has murdered millions of people worldwide through countless wars over the last hundred years. There is no justice. Even the FBI is corrupt to the core. Sadly America will reap what it sows someday soon :-(

Well… Argentina wouldn’t join BRICS because it would have been subject to some Chinese math whiz account reviewing their money ledger. That’s pretty corrupt.
