Will The Conspiracy Against Trump And American Democracy Go Unpunished?

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Dear Readers,

This is one of the most important articles I have written, along with this one.

If the Russiagate conspiracy against Trump and American democracy goes unpunished, accountable government in the United States will cease to exist. US security agencies have long been involved in coups against foreign governments. Now they are involved in one against America.

There is great danger that Republicans are so worshipful of “national security” and so determined to protect the reputation of the US government that they will give a pass to the high officials who participated in a conspiracy against the United States.

As for President Trump, he lacks a government that he can count on and is threatened by the military/security complex. The conspiracy could easily be whitewashed as merely a case of the FBI and DOJ not following proper procedures, with the media’s participation in the conspiracy being dismissed with mea culpas of “sloppy reporting.”

Will The Conspiracy Against Trump and American Democracy Go Unpunished?

“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”  –  Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

The American people do not realize the seriousness of the Russiagate conspiracy against them and President Trump. Polls indicate that a large majority of the public do not believe that Trump conspired with Putin to steal the presidential election, and are tired of hearing the media prostitutes repeat the absurd story day after day. On its face the story makes no sense whatsoever. Moreover, the leaked emails are real, not fabricated. The emails show exactly what Hillary and the DNC did. The public knows that these transgressions were pushed out of news sight by the false story of a Trump/Putin conspiracy. The fact that the entirety of the US print and TV media served in a highly partisan political way to bury a true and disturbing story with a fake news story—Russiagate—is one reason some polls show that only 6% of Americans trust the mainstream media. All polls show that large majorities of independents, Republicans, and youth distrust the mainstream media. In some polls about half of Democrats trust the media, and that is because the media is servant to Democratic Party interests.

Russiagate is a dagger aimed at the heart of American governmental institutions. A conspiracy involving top officials of the Obama Department of Justice, FBI, and other “security” agencies was formed together with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, the purpose of which was to defeat Trump in the presidential election and, failing that, to remove Trump from office or to discredit him to the point that he would be reduced to a mere figurehead. This conspiracy has the full backing of the entirely of the mainstream media.

In other words, it was a coup not only against Donald Trump but also against American democracy and the outcome of a presidential election.

There is no doubt whatsoever about this. The facts are publicly available in the declassified Top Secret Memorandum Opinion and Order of the FISA Court  and in the declassified report from the House Intelligence Committee—given by the presstitutes the misleading name of the “Nunes Memo,” as if it is Nunes’ personal opinion and not the findings of months of work by an oversight committee of Congress..

All of this information has been posted on my website for some time. If you have difficulty following my explanation, former US Attorney Joe DiGenova explains the felony actions by the FBI and Obama Justice (sic) Department here.

Briefly, the National Security Agency discovered that the FBI and DOJ were abusing the surveillance system. As a favor of one security agency to another, NSA Director Adm. Rogers permitted the FBI and DOJ to rush to the FISA Court and confess their transgressions before the NSA informed the Court. The FBI and DOJ pretended that their deception of the Court in order to obtain surveillance warrants for highly partisan political purposes was not due to their intent but to procedural mistakes. The FBI and DOJ told the Court that they were tightening up procedures so that this would not happen again. The FISA Court Memorandum and Order clearly states:

“On October 24, 2016, the government orally apprised the Court of significant non-compliance with the NSA’s minimization procedures involving queries of data acquired under Section 702 using U.S. person identifiers. The full scope of non-compliant querying practices had not been previously disclosed to the Court.”

What this legalese jargon is saying is the the FBI and DOJ confessed to obtaining warrants under false pretexts. These are felonies.

The FISA Court Memorandum and Order is about resolving these deficiencies and returning the FBI and DOJ to legal practices. For example, the Court Memorandum and Order says:

“On January 3, 2017, the government made a further submission describing its efforts to ascertain the scope and causes of those compliance problems and discussing potential solutions to them. See January 3, 2017, Supplemental Notice of Compliance Incidents Regarding the Querying of Section 701-Acquired Data (“January 3, 2017 Notice”). The Court was not satisfied that the government had sufficiently ascertained the scope of the compliance problems or developed and implemented adequate solutions for them and communicated a number of questions and concerns to the government.”

In other words, the FBI and DOJ were attempting to make corrections to their “compliance problems” in ways that would allow them to continue to mislead the FISA Court, and the Court wasn’t letting them.

The FISA Court Memorandum and Order was released prior to the House Intelligence Committee report and has been completely ignored by the utterly corrupt press prostitutes. The FISA Court Memorandum and Order, relying on the confessions of the FBI and DOJ, verifies the House Intelligence Committee report that the FBI and DOJ illegally obtained spy warrants for partisan political purposes.

Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat who is a disgrace to the voters of his California district, to the Democratic Party, and to the House of Representatives, knows full well that the FBI and DOJ deceived the FISA Court. Schiff is so partisan that he lies to the hilt in the face of hard documented evidence from both the FISA Court and his own House committee. Schiff is so totally devoid of all honesty and integrity that he is the perfect leader for a shithole country, something that he and his ilk are turning the United States into.

The honest left—not the Identity Politics left, which is a collection of deranged idiots—does not believe a word of the concocted Russiagate conspiracy against Trump. They object to the Russiagate conspiracy not because they like Trump, which they most certainly do not, but because they understand that it is a lie directed against truth. They understand that the American mainstream media has deserted factual, truthful reporting and serves as a propaganda ministry for the war/police state that American is becoming.

For example, Eric Zuesse holds The Atlantic and its presstitute writer, David A. Graham, to account for lying about the House Intelligence Report.

Andre Damon writes on the World Socialist Web Site:

“The Democratic Party was thrown into disarray Friday after the publication of a classified memo exposing as a factionally-motivated witch hunt the investigation by leading intelligence agencies into the Trump administration’s alleged collusion with Russia. . . . The release of the memo once again underscores the fact that the US intelligence agencies have massively intervened in US politics.

The real left, as opposed to the fake left, understands that the people have no chance when the highest officials of the Department of Justice and the security agencies join in a conspiracy against a democratic outcome. When the justice and police authorities have no respect for the truth, as the Russiagate conspiracy proves, the people are doomed. If the FBI-DOJ-DNC-presstitute conspiracy goes unpunished, The Lie will have prevailed over The Truth and all of us will be endangered.

The important question before us is: will the treasonous criminals in the FBI, DOJ, and DNC be indicted and held responsible? Or do high government officials get a pass as do the police who rob and murder citizens and never face justice for their crimes?

From the sound of things, it looks like they will get a pass. Rep. Nunes felt compelled to say on TV how much he likes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is a party to the deception of the FISA Court. President Trump says he will not fire the conspirator against him, Robert Mueller, even though both Trump and Mueller know that the Russiagate investigation headed by Mueller is a concocted conspiracy against American democracy and the President of the United States. It seems that high government officials, like state and local police and executives of “banks too big to fail,” are above the law.

What about the FISA Court, readers ask, why did the FISA Court let the FBI and DOJ get away with their illegal acquisition of spy warrants? Once the Court knew about it, the Court did not let them get away with it, as the Memorandum and Order makes clear. The FISA Court does not have prosecutorial power to indict and bring a case against the FBI and DOJ criminals. That has to be done by the DOJ, and the DOJ is not going to indict itself.

Former US Attorney Joe DiGenova believes that continuing investigations will result in high officials being indicted, convicted, and sent to prison. If the US is to have any future as a country in which government is accountable to law, it is essential that DiGenova be correct. However, I will believe it when I see it.

Vindictiveness has nothing to do with it. The government has a malignancy, and unless it is surgically removed, the rule of law ceases to exist in the eyes of the people. Besides, trump appeared quite ready to let bygones be bygones with the Clintons after the election (fuck knows why). But the bitch just carried on.


The crimes committed even Hannity and co won't touch on (yet), because the legal implications for the very highest echelons of the DoJ and FBI, and at the same time public's conscious, are unimaginable in a historical context?




Section 2381: Treason

Section 2382: Misprision of treason

Section 2383: Rebellion or insurrection

Section 2384: Seditious conspiracy

Section 2385: Advocating overthrow of Government


Loaded for bear.

Clinton was impeached! So fucking what? He stayed in office and Ms. Clinton went on to the Senate and State Department! Not to mention he was paid $500K for 20-min speeches and generous donations were made to the Clinton carpetbaggers fund. Look at all the murders involving the Clintons, the rape of a number of women, and quite a few trips on Epstein's pervert plane by both Clintons. And you think Trump is a problem? So many delusional people wandering around, jeez.

You truly do not understand the consequences of your wish.  The general consensus out here in flyover country is that the government is and always has been corrupt.   Corruption we understood and tolerated as a consequence of politics.  Take out the President and the government becomes illegitimate.   Illegitimate governments have short life expectancies.  Your point man Schiff has announced that the new government will come after the second amendment by asserting that it serves Russian interests.  To do that your armed minions will have to step over into flyover country and go door to door.  We control your food, fuel and water.  When you come for us, we will shut down the grid and you will eat each other. We let your Muslim foreign born president serve out his term unmolested because he never managed to come for us.  We suggest you do the same for Trump.

Nothing will serve the Chinese and Russian interests more than you guys starting a civil war.

I would say that you nailed it on the head. One goal should the government attempt a general weapons seizure/forced "sale" would be to bring the government officials who voted or carried out the order to the gallows. Hanging is good for a couple of reasons because rope has the following characteristics:

  • Cheap;
  • Reusable;
  • Horror factor;
  • Public lesson to the next ten generations.


After the Philadelphia Chimpout the other night, I don't have a lot of hope for the culture of the United States.

How about this scenario?


“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

The answer to so many burning questions, such as those posited in the article above, as well as about which socio-ethnic group controlled the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik coup d'état, and which now controls the USSA, can be found in one simple acronym:

ZOG — Zionist Occupied Government

A Sea of Blood: The Truth about Bolshevik Russia

Trump is too smart to be vindictive. He wants to restore America back to something resembling what it once was ie a reflection of her constitution. Since he was elected he has been ripping up Obama's executive orders and starting afresh whilst simultaneously growing the economy.

What he has achieved thus far is simply staggering considering all the crap he has had to put up with. But whats more amazing is how he has out witted and played the Dems / deep state and their presstitute media like a Stradivarius violin.  

Trump may not be the slickest or most eloquent of leaders but he is certainly the most intelligent. Just wait until the next Fisa revelations start to drop. These people are running scared - you only have to see their FF attempt with the dumpster truck to know that Trump has them by the balls.

We need a nuclear war to end this shit. In a good nuclear war, around 100 million are killed. The US population returns to the late 60's US population.

The US returns to rule by state as the federal government was burned into hell where they belong.

Let us pray for a nuclear war, the Jews are engineering the end of social security to steal the $3 trillion in US government bonds social security owns, our money we  were forced to give social security.

We need a nuclear war to destroy the federal government.

Time to cull the herd, starting with Washington. I get what he's trying to say. People are insane now, and it's everywhere. The news everyday, reads like a horror movie.Kids are so vicious towards each other and adults. Adults are killing and abusing kids at a rate that can't even be measured now because it's so high.That's bad genetics or something that doesn't need to be passed down another generation.

You may want to give me an example like during the hurricanes, people were very charitable and giving to their fellow humans beings. That is a fly speck of goodness on a pile of manure the size of Mount Everest. One good deed among thousands of violent murders,rapes, and other acts of evil doesn't cut it.

People should be wiped out by the millions until we get back to normal and treat each other with respect and not violence. The US used to be the moral high ground of the world. We led by example. We were virtuous and God fearing. We raised our kids with morals and respect. Women were revered. Now it's like fucking Sodom and Gomorrah everywhere.

No, his thought was not psychotic or sociopathic. Why live in world dominated by evil ? Evil only reigns when good men do nothing.

Evil dominates because the Evil one is in charge right now.  True peace will not be achieved by mankind, ever.  It is only when evil is completely destroyed at the end of the age that true peace will exist (See Ezekiel 38).  

The entire false doctrine of being able to achieve peace only leads us to disagreement and more evil being brought forth.

I imagine that some time in the future Historians will be trawling through these opinions and trying to make sense of how events turned out. They will of course be judging the commentary in the light of what they know. Some of the opinions expressed here should be high-lighted as atypical of the broader community thinking. So thanks for your public service.

Are you volunteering you and yours to go first? I got to visit a FEMA office once. It was located in an Atlas missile shelter. When It happens, the federal government isn't going anywhere and will be in Emergency Dictatorial Mode. Did Trump cancel Oblabla's Executive Orders essentially allowing the federal government to seize everything and enslave everyone?

Sure, and what are we going to do?  Pick up our gun and get mowed down by the paid worldwide military empire apparatus the hijackers of the US have?  Those people swearing to uphold and defend the Constitution are actually providing the force by which the regime is made bold in its lawlessness.  These meatheads are doing the opposite of what they take an oath to do.
