Paul Craig Roberts Slams The NSA: "It's A Blackmail Agency"

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

The main function of the National Security Administration is to collect the dirt on members of the house and senate, the staffs, principal contributors, and federal judges.

The dirt is used to enforce silence about the crimes of the security agencies.

The blackmail mechanism was put into gear the minute the news reported that the House Intelligence Committee had assembled proof that the FBI, DOJ, and DNC created Russiagate as a conspiracy to unseat President Trump. Members of Congress with nothing to hide demanded the evidence be released to the public.

Of course, it was to be expected that release of the facts would be denounced by Democrats, but Republicans, such as Rep. Mike Conaway (R, Texas), himself a member of the committee, joined in the effort to protect the Democrats and the corrupt FBI and DOJ from exposure. Hiding behind national security concerns, Conaway opposes revealing the classified information. “That’d be real dangerous,” he said.

As informed people know, 95% of the information that is classified is for purposes that have nothing to do with national security.

The House Intelligence Committee memo has no information in it related to any security except that of Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Hillary, Obama, Mueller, Rosenstein, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, the DNC, and the presstitute media.

The logical assumption is that every member of Congress opposed to informing the American public of the Russiagate conspiracy to unseat the President of the United States is being blackmailed by the security agencies who planned, organized, and implemented the conspiracy against the President of the United States and American democracy.

American insouciance is a great enabler of the ability of the security agencies and their media whores to control the explanations.

Death ? For someone to die, one has to be previously born.


Which never happened : the « revered » founding father founded an oligarchy from the start and made sure the US would never become a democracy and would always remain ruled by an oligarchy. An open plutocratic oligarchy.

And now you know exactly how come your company lost that multi-Billion tender....

And why GDP in the US goes up...

The US does not need a comprehensive economic can just steal all the information on all big economic players in the world. 

What do you think the USA will do...MAGA and work hard to make it a prosperous country? Or steal information by eaves dropping?

In the longer than medium term?  You're better off without the NSA and the cheating.

It's called hard work and love of what you do.  But of course that is quite out of fashion.  I can sincerely tell you that as an engineer that pains me to no small extent.  As an engineer looks out over the expanse of humanity it's not a happy sight. So many that have no ability to build.  Only a studied skill in how to destroy.

Exactly, all they have to do is put that on your computer remotely (if you don't believe me I have something to tell you) via your IP and then have the police/FBI come to your place and burn you.  It won't matter what you say once your caught up in something like that no one will defend you except your momma.

There is a Iraq war video that is almost impossible to see anymore.  It was after 9/11 when the US went into Iraq.  A person is pointing a camera to the back of a Humvee and it shows a Humvee behind him and also marines running down the side of a street that all of them are going down.  What happened is insurgents planted explosives on the side of the street and it went off atomizing essentially a bunch of marines going down the side of the road on foot and knocking out all the tires of the Humvee that was following the camera guy. 

This video has been deleted off of individuals phones and computers without them knowing it.  I think that they look for a time stamp or some type of watermark or many points of identifiers on that particular video.  Then while searching through any and all IP devices if it encounters it they delete it.

Love you PCR and love what you do, but I disagree on the blackmail idea.  The deep state/MSM/party apparatus pick the candidates we get to vote for.  There is no need to blackmail anyone once they get on either party ticket in any major election.  Trump is no exception (he received more air time than anyone, for free).   The electorate is the only one playing checkers.

We're still debating whether the GOP and supreme court justices were "blackmailed" when they do the exact opposite of what was expected of them, aren't we?  And that pesky NSA just got even more powers under Trump's watch.  And Hillary is still walking free. And we're still at war all over the world.  And the new Fed President is the new Fed President.  And the deficit is still growing.   And immigration hasn't really changed.   Former Goldman Sachs guys are setting tax and economic policy.

Are there some things that are better than they would under Hillary?  Yes.  Do they matter in the grand scheme?  Ask yourself honestly. 

It's been a year now.  Name one game changer in your opinion since Trump took office.

It's still all talk. Nothing has changed.  Here's a real world example.  The deep state is most easily identified by the NSA, which just got expanded powers by overwhelming majority vote in Congress.  Trump signed the bill with no fanfare even as he continues to talk about how bad the deep state is.  You're assuming (as people love to do) that talk means something.  Talk is cheap.

Why do you keep bringing it back to what Trump is doing? It was never about Trump. It was about people who were desperate enough to cast a "Hail Mary" vote for Trump just like you did.

What do you think Trump voters' attitude will be if he accepts business as usual or if he is ousted in a politicized coup? What might be the next step for those who were already so disaffected that they voted Trump?
