Paul Craig Roberts, Trump’s Surrender to the Neocons & the Likelihood of Nuclear Armageddon

by Paul Craig Roberts

If Truth Is Politicized, All Is Lost

Trump’s surrender to the  neoconservatives makes it impossible for an informed person to support him.  He has signed off on the coup against democracy in Venezuela, and he has placed all life at risk by pulling out of the INF treaty with Russia.  Putin has publicly announced that the consequences of Washington’s reckless and irresponsible decision to junk the INF treaty will be the targeting of the missile sites in Europe and also of the American command and control centers.

As I write there is nothing on the BBC or CNN websites or anywhere else in the US print and TV media about the President of Russia’s clear statement.  Trump has allowed the crazed neocons to raise the likelihood of nuclear Armageddon to near certainty, and it has gone unreported by the presstitutes.

Not only is there no evidence for Washington’s claim that Russia has violated the INF treaty, violating the treaty is not in Russia’s interests. Russian intermediate range missiles cannot reach the US. The purpose of the treaty is to keep Russia from targeting Europe by preventing US intermediate range missiles from being deployed in Europe.  Washington tore up the INF treaty in order to put intermediate range missiles on Russia’s border, thus endangering Europe.

A hopeful person could perhaps reason that Trump, realizing that he is powerless to reduce tensions with Russia and to stop the wars, has decided to give free rein to the neocons in the expectation that they will so terrify Europe that Europe will break from Washington and NATO in an act of self-preservation. Perhaps Trump realizes that only the breakup of the Empire can stop the wars, and that the best way to destroy the American Empire is to give free rein to the crazed neoconservatives.   

What is important is not what political party or candidate that we support, but that we support truth wherever we find it.  Most people are confused about this.  If truth is on Trump’s side, and you support truth, people see it as supporting Trump.  

This shows how politicized and emotional American thinking has become.  Andrew McCabe, former acting director of the FBI, has made it clear that the FBI, the Democratic Party, US media, former CIA director John Brennan, former director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and the US Department of Justice (sic) were, and are, involved in a plot to remove President Trump from office.  

The fraudulent “Steele Dossier” is the basis for the fraudulent “Russiagate” investigation.  A number of laws have been violated by those involved in the plot.  For example, spy warrants were obtained from the FISA court under false pretense, and there is little,

if any, doubt that Brennan, Comey, Rosenstein, and Mueller are guilty of sedition and conspiracy against the President of the United States.  By demanding that these government officials be held accountable, we defend truth and the rule of law, not Trump.  

Russiagate is a hoax, but the INF treaty and the open plot to overthrow Venezuelan democracy are not hoaxes.  These, not conspiring with Putin, are the crimes for which Trump should be held accountable.

  1. About Trump: The GOOD [Domestic Policy]; The BAD [Foreign Policy]; The UGLY [Blind Loyalty to Israel, Homeland of Satanists, Anti-Christs, Terrorists, Murderers, Liars, Criminals and ZIONAZI Slimeballs who did 911!]. Covering up Israel’s 911 ATTACK ON AMERICA is HIGH TREASON, punishable by HANGING! HANG ‘EM HIGH!

  2. The Smith-Mundt Act makes government hoaxes and propaganda legal. The vile Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels would love it.

    The 2012 hoax in Sandy Hook and the fake killing of 26 people, which included 20 kids, was legal according to the Smith-Mundt Act.
    We can excoriate Obama for the repeal of that Act. He was deeply involved with all of the hoaxes during his ugly time in the Oval Office. The fake blood was barely washed from the scene when he would rush to the location and shed fake tears by the gallon. Soon after that he and his minions would call for gun control. It got to be almost a monthly routine. He would even lower the White House flag to honor this disgusting fakery.

    Its slowed down in the Trump era but the basic theme sadly continues.

    1. If Smith-Mundt is legal, what about the massive duping that led to many millions of dollars changing hands after the debacle? Does a legal S-M act mean it’s perfectly OK for the lying parties to collect these millions of dollars and thereby dupe donors who reacted as if the Hoax was legit? Is any other crime committed under S-M perfectly OK? Does S-M legitimize, say, murders both real and not real? Is the scope of S-M unlimited in breadth?

      1. You make a good point Bahmi.

        What about the millions given to the CT State Police by the DOJ. What about the millions paid to Newtown-Sandy Hook homeowners who got their mortgages paid in full?

        Does the S-M Act allow children and their parents to commit felony frauds to promote government propaganda?

        The S-M Act makes fakery and fraud to promote a government objective …. legal. By extension, then anything commercial between parties that’s related to this objective, is therefore sadly also legal.

        Does this suspension of reality also extend to children? Where do the child’s protections begin and end? Can children of any age be drafted into the military to become soldiers to defend the nation in wartime? Can children be used to engage in government propaganda?

        Can the government force a Free and Honest Press to promote government propaganda lies?

        There is no end to this nightmarish rabbit hole. Once a nation goes down this hole, standby for entry into hell.
        Nazi Germany went down this hole and look where they ended up.

  3. With the repeal of the Smith-Mundt Act, how does the average listening/watching American have any idea what is true and what is not?…and sadly enough, that includes information on the Internet. Is this not how they get away with these myriad false flags. Now, it’s all propaganda…can anyone prove different?

    Mr. Trump, with all due respect, criticizes fake news, but you can be damn sure he’s using that same method to his advantage.

    I’ll never give up hope, but not being able to distinguish propaganda from truth is making it almost impossible to hold on

    PLEASE prove me wrong.
